It's a pretty theory...

So I read where a company called Snake River is now marketing a product called Dronemunition. Snake River is, I believe, a manufacturer of ammunition. Dronemunition, according to Snake River’s website, is especially good for – you guessed it – shooting down drones. “Prepare for the Drone Apocalypse!... Sign in to see full entry.

A man for all seasons, sort of...

So another video of an elusive, mythical creature has hit the Internet, this time someone’s cell phone video of a possible Sasquatch, shot not too far away in the North Carolina mountains. That’s Bigfoot for all you people who have somehow missed the last six decades of good old American “I’ve got... Sign in to see full entry.

Not in my back yard!

I think I may have a new hero. Well done, William Merideth, well done! I am talking, of course, about the Kentucky man who, upon seeing a drone hovering in the middle in his back yard with a video camera, did what anyone would probably do if they had any gumption: he grabbed his shotgun and blew it...

Something to offend everyone...

Oh, so you’re offended? Well tough noogies – I’m offended that you’re offended. Get over it. That pretty much sums up the essence of most debates these days. It really doesn’t matter what the issue is, after far too few minutes of rational discussion, it generally devolves to the essence of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Eavesdropping on E.T.

I read the other day that Stephen Hawking is leading a new effort to look for extra terrestrial life. This one is being bankrolled, to the tune of $100 million, by Russian gazillionaire Yuri Milner, who among other things, was born in 1961 and was named for Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first...

More signposts along Curmudgeon Road

So we were standing together, my Beloved and I, in our front yard, the breeze from passing cars rustling our bumper crop of crabgrass. The conversation had to do with weighing the various and sundry options we are considering for the yard -- and there are quite a few, actually. Not that it’s... Sign in to see full entry.

(This is one I wrote a number of years ago. In honor of my father, I am re-posting it for Father’s Day. May all fathers out there be as great as mine, and may they all know, wherever they are, how much they mean to us.) It took me a minute to figure out why my eyes were flooding. Maybe it was the...

Governing the Passions

The next time I am within earshot of an individual who uses the phrase “I have a passion for…” to describe anything other than the first moment he or she met their significant other, I’m very likely to passionately beat them senseless with a five pound bag of oranges. I know, I know, yet another... Sign in to see full entry.

Maybe an analyst can interpret this recurring nightmare...

Dig, if you will, this picture: I’ve been dating this girl for about two months – starting to warm up from weekends at the frat house to pseudo serious time spent. Next thing you know, it’s Thanksgiving and she’s invited me to her home for dinner and to meet her family. The good news is that she... Sign in to see full entry.

A cunning plan...

Whoever said “money can’t buy happiness” either never had it or just took it way too seriously. With enough money, you can, in fact, buy a lot of happiness, or rather, peace of mind, which is a very clearly marked and well-paved route to happiness. You just have to do it right. I have always said I... Sign in to see full entry.
