30 Years

It’s been Thirty years since Los Angeles joined the ranks of cities whose only qualification was to be a victim of a terrorist act.  Though, were they really terrorists?  Their own ranks called themselves exceptional thieves, and one-time kidnappers, not terrorists.  No Hans Grubber and his pals were opportunists, and only cared about money, $600 … Continued

17 Years

The world changed forever 17 years ago.  I remember, I was in highschool, at our welcome to the new school year Mass.  When it was over, the president of the school announced it to us all (it was only around 9am).  We went back to our classrooms and watched it unfold throughout the day. Some … Continued

As public service announcements go, this one is pretty damn good.  We all fall for it, we call things by the brand names that made them famous, were the firsts, or had the best marketing strategy.  However it’s wrong, and if you go somewhere else, people might not know what you’re talking about.  Like seriously, … Continued

None of them will come off as good, or nice, but it’s terrible to make the entire group of athletes pay for the sins of a few.  … Continued

Remember Pearl

There is no Alternate History this year, just straight up remembrance.  76 years ago the world changed (for the better I would say).  It was a major event, and even now people are second guessing the circumstances that eventually led up to it.  But I have this much to say.  Don’t judge the past on … Continued

So Many Faucets

0

Seriously, who knew that the lonely faucet had so many new ways to operate?  If you don’t believe me, search for “faucet” on Yanko Design, (or just click that link).  At the time of this writing, there’s 13 pages worth.  Sure, some of them are stupid crazy things, but some are actually pretty neat. This … Continued

The Gustav Gun

World War 2 was the most devastating war in human history.  If we forget about the events that ended the war thousands of miles away, Germany, Europe and the rest of the combatants used plenty of conventional weapons to wreck havoc on each other for nearly 6 years. The above shows Hitler and some generals … Continued
