  • Portal

    OK, I’ve finally join the masses of gamers who have finished Portal. Color me very impressed. I started playing it because I understood it to be a first-person puzzler. I stopped around level 14 to play other games, but after reading high praise from so many other sources I finally came back and finished it […]

  • Identity thief stymied by device drivers

    Having stolen a drivers’ license printer and a computer for it from the DMV, Timothy Scott Short was captured after calling Digimarc for help setting up the printer

  • Genital piercing to protect virtue?

    On one side of the story, we have the daughter who claims her genitals were forcibly pierced by her mother to “make it uncomfortable to have sex.” The mother says the girl agreed to the piercing to help rebuild trust. Prosecutor Steve Maresca said the mother called on a friend to shave the girl’s head […]

  • Learn Chiropracty in the fastest time possible

    As Charlie notes – nothing says Professional like a degree from an eclectic school of chiropratic

  • GIMP finally hits 2.4

    If you are into heavy-duty image editing, but can’t afford Photoshop, you are probably already familiar with GIMP, and already know version 2.4 was release last week. If you didn’t know that, well now you do, and you can head over to the GIMP website for the download. In honor of the release, the GIMP […]

  • Get your television fix online

    I’m not someone who watches a lot of television. Typically, if I have spare time, I’d prefer to be doing something on the computer rather than sitting just watching television. Even if I do sit to watch television, I tend to have my laptop with me so I can work on other things in the […]

  • iPhone outselling Motorola RAZR?

    Before the iPhone launched, I said I didn’t see it doing as well as Steve Jobs expected. I thought it might sell well initially, but once the early adopters had their hands on it the market would slow. Well, I believe the difference between Steve Jobs opinion and mine shows why only one of us […]

  • Glenn Beck declares conservatives hate America?!?

    Since the first time I watched his show, I’ve liked Glenn Beck. Sometimes I disagree with him, but often I think a lot of what he says makes sense. So I find it exceptionally odd that Glenn would chose to say that conservatives hate America on his program. “I think there is a handful of […]

  • Please – kill Sylar off for good (and other chatter)

    So I really got in to Heroes last season, and I’m staying up-to-date (give or take 2 days) with each weeks’ episodes this season. I was so glad last season when they finally killed of Sylar. Now I’m so disappointed that he’s back. Worst. Villain. Evar! I expect he’ll be in the show the rest […]

  • Nad shots

  • That Mountain Dew glow

    Recently highlighted blog Retrospectacle has some info debunking the Mountain Dew glow viral video (I’m in love with Shelley’s blog, BTW)

  • Did you know drug handedness can affect potency?

    I have no idea this was something that mattered, but recently drug companies have been releasing updated versions of drugs that are spatially altered to improve effectiveness and/or minimize side-effects. This means more better you-ness, with less worser unwanted-nessitude. This is a bit heavy: Stereoisomers are molecules that have the same chemical formula and bonds, […]
