Wow, a Conan O'Brien board game.  I'm getting this first day, man.

Project Buy A House: Motivation


I've known for a long time that it's wrong to just complain about things without actually doing something about the thing that you're complaining about.  The situation I'm in is something that, for most of the time it's been affecting me, I've felt powerless to resolve or alter in any way.  Now I know different.  Now I know that there is a way.  Now I know that there is something I can do about the situation I find myself in.  The situation may never come to an end, but my participation in it will.  Project Buy A House.  That is my ticket out.

Positive Mantra


Many people have a mantra, a word or phrase that they repeat to themselves, that leads to positive change in their life.  I have a mantra, one that I have been repeating a lot lately.

No Energy


The situation that I find myself in isn't going to end anytime soon, but my participation in it will.  Project Buy A House.

Who Likes Free Things?!?


ME!  ME!  ME!  ME!  ME!  ME!  I like free things!!!  I like free things being given to me for free because they are free things and are being given to me!  How could you not like free things?

On second thought...

CNN Facepalm

CNN to Produce Political Game Show


Remember when CNN was a respected news outlet?  Me neither.

Palm Oil Joker

Did Palm Oil Expansion Play A Role In The Ebola Crisis?


I don't know if this is true, but I like the possibility of it.  Not because it explains something that the world is dealing with, but because it has the possibility of being a huge international scandal.  It's like a great man once said, "Some men just want to watch the world burn."

Upside Down In Debt

How Jack Johnson's Parents Screwed Him And Left Him Millions In Debt


Wow.  It's unfortunate when people find themselves in situations like this, especially when that situation is created by the people you implicitly trust.  I remember seeing Jack Johnson in concert once.  I'd like to see him again.  It'll be sad if that doesn't happen because Jack Johnson is a truly gifted musician.

Just Another Heads Up

'Silk Road Reloaded' Just Launched on a Network More Secret than Tor


What I take away from this story is that there is a way to anonymize your internet usage that is more secretive than Tor.  What I also take away from this is that the method that is describe here is probably in the process of being cracked by the government and may not be truly anonymous for long.  Good to know.

Facepalm

Report: NCAA Considering Restoring Joe Paterno's Vacated Wins


If the NCAA does this, it will prove that the NCAA has no moral authority when it comes to the consequences that it levees.  If the NCAA does this, it will make the NCAA even more of an irrelevant organization than it already it.  If the NCAA does this, they will become only a body that generates money and not a body that hold anybody to any real standard.

$150 > $23.98

Intel's $150 HDMI Stick Turns Any TV Into a Windows Desktop


What this article doesn't address, and the question that Intel hasn't answered yet, is why I should spend $150 on a low powered PC that hooks up to my TV when I can buy a twenty-five foot HDMI cable and a Thunderbolt to HDMI adapter for a total of $23.98 and hook up the Mac Mini I use as a media PC to my TV, using my bigger at home TV as a second monitor.  Why should I spend 625% more than is necessary to buy something superfluous that only makes me look like a more bigger nerd than I already am?

Eyerqew Exam



So I hadad an eyes exam today, and duringea it they dialted my eyes.  My eyes carea still dialated as i type this.  Can DYOU tel?

O Yeah

You've heard of the Xbox, now meet the OBox


Well, it looks better than the Ouya.

It Continues

http://youtu.be/WkHPM9DW-5k?t=1m36s

And so it continues, the annexation of my free time.  It continues because the person who I am covering for can't be bothered to do anything, much less what amounts to his responsibilities as a man.  This is something that is going to end, not because of any effort put forth by the person I am covering for, but because of my will, my drive, my effort, my sacrifice, the things that I do because I am the only person willing and able to do something about it.

Wishing For Existence Of Good People

'A living hell' for slaves on remote South Korean islands

You hear about things that you hope don't exist.  You hear about these things and wish that they didn't exist.  Then, deep in the back part of your mind, you wish that you didn't know that they existed.  You wish that you could close yourself off to the bad parts of the world and only interact with the good.  But you're a good person, so you don't close yourself off, and instead acknowledge that the bad is there and seek to end it.  The way that you end it is to let others know.  Foster Klug is a good person seeking to end the bad in the world by letting the other good people know about it.
