Can’t Argue With Logic


Surviving the World is a pretty clever site.  Basically it’s a kid in a baseball cap and a lab coat putting some goofy stuff on a blackboard.  Sometimes it takes a moment or two, but once you get the joke, it’s great.

There Goes March

Now I know what I'll be doing all March long...

I realize this is almost becoming a videos blog. Maybe I'll write something later...

Another Great Find

No surprise here, but I’ve always doubted the validity of half the stuff on Fox…

Made Me Laugh

Becci shared this with me, and I giggled.  What’s scary is I recognized the song right away.

Google Wave

I'm in the Google wave beta now.  Now to figure out what the hell it does.  It has a loooooong video, maybe I should watch it...

Finches are Funny

We have finches, and they make funny noises whenever birds outside or on TV make noises.  I keep telling them they’re in a cage and safe, but they won’t listen to me.

Becci Flipped Me Off!

Smiley middle fingerYes!  After years of just thinking about it, she finally did it!  What caused this catharsis?  I pointed out that 43.2 does have programming she occasionally likes.

Christmas is Almost Upon Us

DSC_0011 Remember when you were a kid and you’d write a list for Santa?  Those days aren’t as long gone as you’d think.  Here’s my list if you’re reading Santa.  And here’s Becci’s as well.  :)

The Reason I Barely Touch My PS3

Updates! Damned, filthy, mandatory updates! Every time I turn on my PS3, it seems that if the system doesn't have an update, the game does. We're not talking the quick 30 second updates on 360, these are long drawn out, 15 minute or more updates. Maybe I only have 10 minutes to play. How am I supposed to play this damned thing?

I have a 1080P picture on the tube, so at least my update screen looks awesome. I however can't tell you how the game looks in said resolution as I've been writing this post, having a sandwich, and taking a dump while the game updates. Just awesome.

I Might Need Viagra

At least that’s what my latest e-mails to myself say.  As evidenced below, I’m obviously not happy with my performance in the bedroom.  I’m apparently so unhappy I start by offering myself 70% off.  That didn’t work, so I offered myself a whopping 79% off.  I must’ve gotten angry as I reduced the discount to a still respectable 76% off my penis pills.


This is just a small sample of my spam inbox.  What’s really sad is that some bone-head is dumb enough to click on the e-mails from themselves.  I’d think that if I was to send myself info on pecker pills, I wouldn’t be so blatant in the subject line.  It would probably have a subject “TMP Report,” or something else mundane.

Spammers really should get a little more creative.  Fortunately for us they are lazy and obviously avoid any and all forms of work.  I’m feeling depressed thinking about it now.  I think I’m going to send myself and e-mail offering 98% off my pills.  That will make me feel much better.

I’m Shedding a Tear.

What a waste of a beautiful Bel-Air.  The good news is people are safer in the event of a crash.  The bad news is it’s the bad drivers that are getting saved…  I think it’s more of a loss than a win…

Batman is Awesome.


Just finished Batman: Arkham Asylum.  Excellent game, loved almost every minute of it.  Some parts were ridiculously hard, but rewarding when I finally passed them up.  I’d definitely recommend anyone who’s a Batman fan to play it.

The only part I haven’t finished is the challenge rooms.  My only question is how worth it the achievements are.  They’re kinda wack, but I’m on the fence with that…  Now to write a review for OE, I think Andy is eagerly awaiting the review.

For those that don’t know, that’s Becci’s grandma in the picture.  You could always talk her into doing silly stuff, she was pretty cool.

Well, That Was Fast

Summer's been here and gone already.  I don't remember where I put it.  I know I had a good time, but it's gone.  Now it's time for fall.  How do I know?  It's not the leaves changing colors or little bastards going back to school.  The new TV season is already here.  Here's to more nights with less sleep than I should get!

Squirrels Are Awesome

We were at the park yesterday for our nieces birthday.  While there we were inundated by squirrels.  That’s a good thing, I love squirrels.  They are some of the quirkiest creatures put on this earth.  This little fellow was frightened by me, so he ran up the tree with his nut he was eating.  Funny thing is, he kinda hung upside down and ate his nut while intently watching me.  I swear I wouldn’t try to eat him.  Well, maybe I would, he was pretty friggin’ cool.  BTW, my niece named him Nibbles.

Michigan Isn’t Too Bad

The roads in Michigan are a little confusing, but not too bad.  Boston still wins in the shittiest civil engineering possible category.  In both states you have to go right if you want to make a left.  In Massachusetts you have to drive a couple of miles to get to a U-turn, and I’m still not 100% sure if it’s legal to do.  In Michigan you only have to go a few blocks.  The signs aren’t really clear, but you can at least easily correct a mistake.

Then again the bad driving experience in Boston could have totally been my mom.  She’s a great person, but a horrible backseat driver.  Maybe one day I’ll find the same drugs Dexter uses to knock out his victims.  :)

Nothing Like Robocop

Visiting Detroit today, and I’m kinda disappointed.  I expected to see RoboCop driving around in a crappy Ford Taurus.  Instead it’s been a fairly nice area.  Not at all what I expected.  Maybe we just didn’t make it into the really seedy parts…


On the other hand, the PSA’s were somewhat expected.  After watching enough Judge Mathis, I did expect to see signs telling the kids to stay off the rock.

Hell Yeah!

I finally figured out how to move on in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion!

Apparently I missed one tiny little thing, and that was the hold-up. I completed a quest that was supposed to happen after that tiny little thing, so it never asked me for it. Oh well, at least I did get around to powering up my character to what is probably the upper limit. Sure it was like an extra 20 or 30 hours, but at least it was a fun game. I can't wait to finish the game!!

Never Fails

Why is it that whenever you look for something you can’t find it, but when you’re not looking for it it’s right in front of you?  WTF?

Say you need a half-inch socket, you can’t find it.  When you need a 13mm socket, you suddenly have five frigging half-inch sockets, but no 13’s.

Same with my Ortega sauce.  We had taco night, no sauce.  Glanced in the fridge tonight, there it is.  Damn you Murphy, you Irish shmuck!

The Government is Awesome

I was fooling around on the internet, and I found out why FEMA is incompetent and can’t get shit done on time.  They apparently use their own calendar…

Seriously, June 34th?  I guess their weeks are 15 days long, with only 3 weeks a month…

Awesome Sunrise

Of course I don't have the camera. When I bring the camera, the sunrise kinda sucks. This morning, one of the more beautiful I've seen, ever. Sorry I can't share it with you. Oh well.

Hail to the King

Just letting you know the King of All Awesome has arrived.
