An interesting question

Posted by on July 26, 2015 at 10:04 pm

A couple of weeks ago, I happened to be working in a facility where, as a matter of patient safety, there were no liners or trash bags in the garbage cans. I think everybody knows that garbage bags can be used to suffocate someone. Granted, the ones I use at home are probably not strong enough […]

Oddly Appropriate

So it seems that the $10 bill is about to get a makeover, and a woman’s face will grace the note. She will replace Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton was a known, uh, “man about town”. He has the honor of being at the center of America’s first political sex scandal.  In fact, Hamilton “got around” so […]

Old news….

So I just came across this little gem from December: Finally, Christian Bale recently said he felt jealous to see Ben Affleck wearing the cape and cowl – do you ever get that? No. Do you know why? Because I’m Batman. I’m very secure in that. You know, I wasn’t sure he was Batman 25 years ago, […]

I’m going to say this again

One more time, nice and slow, since some people don’t get it. Never put anything online that you wouldn’t read out loud or show to your mother, your boss, and a judge. And, let me add, that includes video. In Closing: making us less safe; still true; liberal news media; the Slammer; yoga and more yoga; […]

“Did you see that ludicrous display last night?”

Wouldn’t it be nice if the networks would set their science fiction shows in the near future, so it’s obvious the science is made up? Ok, I confess I watched the premiere of CSI Cyber last night. I also confess that I was expecting to watch for the heckling value.     About the only […]

Convenient Insecurity

My car is a simple thing. You hit a button to lock the doors. You hit a button and you can unlock doors. If you open a door from inside, it unlocks. I don’t think I’ll ever own a GM car. I’ve been in a number of rentals, and there’s a “feature” I find unacceptable. […]

A very very random thought

Ok, so it’s been pointed out multiple times that the Starbucks Trenta holds more than a typical human stomach. Amateurs. In Closing: keeping the average man down, or rather beating him until he’s part of the underclass who knows his place (and spy on him if he seems like he might think about doing something illegal […]

Do No Harm

Posted by on January 21, 2015 at 9:29 pm

Today’s question: Hippocrates famously said: “Make a habit of two things: to help; or at least to do no harm.” Add one more important habit to his list. Never mind that he didn’t actually say any such thing…. But as long as doing helpful things and refraining from doing harmful things is the topic, let’s […]

Some years ago, I read a book called the Inner Game of Music. In a manner of speaking, it was about getting out of your own way. Oddly enough, one of the things that stuck with me about this book was a peculiar concept: giving yourself permission to fail. Apparently many people have learned this […]
