The Experience of Our Species - Part III

No comments:

Ever marvel at the things we humans can do, or the crazy inventions we come up with? Well, I do, and I feel like sharing that wonder with you. This is the final part of that journey.

Another Break?

No comments:

I don’t plan on these interruptions in updates, but they seem to keep happening. I guess that happens when you’ve got a new child - especially one with so many issues. Good news is, there’s nothing (so far) seriously wrong. Bad news is, there’s little time for much else anymore. I’m still blogging, and will continue for now. The only difference is I won’t be nearly so prolific for a while. :-) Thanks for reading!

“This is News You Need to Hear”

No comments:

“This is news everyone needs to hear.” How often do you hear that phrase while watching one of your local television stations? How many times do you hear that promo line in the middle of your early afternoon news broadcast? Of course, there are other variations, such as “this is something no parent will want to miss” and “if you own a home, this is the most important information you’ll get all day”, and the list goes on. As often as such a catchphrase is thrown about, you might think the world is coming to an end (that’s a topic for later). There’s a problem with these ‘important’ messages, however, since they’re played only once throughout the day, during the late-night broadcast.

Stay Illegal for Less

1 comment:

You’re familiar with Safe Auto, yes? This is the car insurance company with the jingle that makes me want to shoot myself; the one with the overly clean-cut Justin Case (har har on the name, guys). Well, they advertise that they can help keep you ‘legal for less’. I’m about to demonstrate to you why that’s just not the case, at least from their advertising perspective.

Being a Grump

No comments:

I complain a lot. It’s how I work; it’s the way the world makes me. However much I complain, though, I’m still not the only one. The Curmudgeon is also out there, and his blog is worth a look. He typically writes about as much in a post as you’ll find in this one, so it’s a quicker, easier read than mine. He also frequently gets me to chuckle. Check him out, and leave a comment or two!

How to Kill Trees While Wasting Money

2 comments:

There’s a new product out there, designed to help keep your home more sanitary, which seems to have come from some backward-thinking developers. When it seems more and more people are hopping aboard the ‘green’ bandwagon, the folks at Kleenex thought that now was a good time to market an anti-environmental practice, to strike out one of the three ‘R’s - reuse, and push for the use of one-time use hand towels.

All Hail ‘King James’?

No comments:

In an age of corporate bailouts, and financial hardship for middle-class America, there’s a certain class of person who is still doing well - and actually striving. To join this elite club is not difficult; you don’t have to go to college, and while you may possess a certain skill, that proficiency doesn’t actually have to be of any use to the general public (i.e. craftsmanship, leadership, etc.) Want to know the secret? Just ask ‘King James’…
