Remember, Remember

The 7th of December When the Japs secured their fate The years numbered four But we evened the score And it was surely worth the wait That’s a good version of the The fifth of November poem.  Sure there are more lines that I’m not adding to, but honestly, who else remembers anything except the … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: Blackness

0

Common American folklore states that Thanksgiving was when the Indians helped the pilgrims from the Mayflower survive the winter.  This is mostly true, however, the real history can be traced back to the colonists from Roanoke.  They are the reason why this feast is celebrated, though not for what you would think.  Read on, for a … Continued

Cuyahoga Valley NP

Cuyahoga Valley National Park is located right outside of Cleveland Ohio, and unlike Niagara Falls, is actually directly on the way to Chicago.  So I’m totally going to being stopping there as I make my way across the nation for Thanksgiving. It’s sorta like Vacation, except, it’s not going to be as crazy, or dangerous, … Continued

Who Built America

I might be 4 years past due here, but this series has been extremely fun to watch. It’s also been a learning experience.  You know, back to the basics of The History Channel.  Before it turned into shitty reality TV and half-baked conspiracy theories. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good conspiracy theory, and … Continued

Geode Skulls

0

I gotta say, these things look so ace.  The skills and craftsmanship that is necessary to carve them are amazing.  It’s also important to find geodes that are large enough to get a fully sized skull out of them.  Well, maybe not exactly life-sized.  But larger than a keychain anyway. As you can expect though, … Continued

DIY CNC

  Technically this is a computer numerical controlled machine, though it’s not the same thing that most people think of when they hear CNC Machine.  It looks pretty easy to build.  There’s not much to it.  Anyone remotely interested in computers has a plethora of old unused optical drives that they can re-purpose.  I’m not … Continued

Making an Engine

The above video should be watched with a grain of salt and an hair of irony given the latest VW settlement.  Oh, did you not know that?  VW cheated on the emissions last year.  It was all over the news, their stock lost 30% of it’s value.  Pretty crazy times.  Did you also know that I own … Continued
