Group Photos


This is why I hate taking photos of people and groups.  Too many cameras, too many things. Anyway, the above video is not so much a group photo, as an experiment.  Will one random passer by take 40 different photos of a group (one photo on each (various) camera from each individual)?  It’s a pretty … Continued

Personal Arsenal


Or mechanized armored transport if you prefer.  On July 11th, and 12th 2014 Auctions America will be auctioning off over 200 different items from the largest private military vehicle collection in the nation. Since it’s an auction, there are no hard prices, but many of the items I saw were listed without a reserve, and … Continued

The world is full of Idiots


This fairly accurately describes how work life is.  Replace the 7 lines with “we need our application to do A, B and C, but not D”  Meanwhile, B, C, and D are the same exact thing, and A is the polar opposite of all three.  Ah, such is life.  Fun times. {cnet}

Pikachu Mascot


The World Cup starts this week over in Brazil, and The United States has a berth in it apparently, go US.  That’s not the point of this post.  The point of this post is to showcase Japan.  Their official team mascot for the World Cup is Pikachu.  You know, the electric Pokemon.  I like it, … Continued

Tesla Motors


I have always been a fan of Telsa Motors. I would totally buy a Tesla Model S if it weren’t for the facts below: 1) I live in Brooklyn 2) I park on the street (where people steal my wheels and flip their cars right next to mine) 3) Even if I had a garage or … Continued

There’s nothing in the world like Action Park!


Roadtrippers has a pretty good write up on the soon to be revived, Action Park.  However, I think what you really should do is watch this video first.  It may be long, but it’s totally worth it.  If you’re lazy, skip to 8:20.  If you’re really lazy, look at the photo below the video: Yes, … Continued

Stumble XX – Return of the Wrong


Where to begin?  It’s been awhile since there have been equal parts amazing, awesome, memorizing, and just plain wrong in a single Stumble Bust.  This is a few months in the making, but I figure I might as well post it now.  I’m afraid that if I wait any longer I might mortally offend some … Continued

Old Faithfull


I’m in Yellowstone right now, and actually around the Old Faithful area.  Did you know that the National Park Service has a live Old Faithful Webcam?  I’ll be staying in the area for the next 2 days.  See if you can’t find me on the webcam stream.  Take a picture and send it if you … Continued



I am off for a truly Epic (and you know me, I do not use that word lightly), trip to Yellowstone.  The last of what I call The Big 3 National Parks, (the others being The Grand Canyon, and Yosemite).  This is possibly the most exciting vacation I am going on.  I’ll be gone for … Continued

Alternate History Thursday – VR D-Day


Today marks a turning point in World War 2.   Both in the present reality, and in our alternate reality. 70 years ago Allied forces begun the largest seaborne invasion in the history of the world.  While the term D-Day is a generic military term denoting the day a particular attack or event is supposed … Continued
