Bonus Music: Funky!

Published on January 28, 2015 By bmagnus

More here. I particularly like the fact that this wasn’t just a production of the dance team and assorted Pretty People. Yeah, even a Fort Worth girl can appreciate what they did in Dallas. In Closing: Yay, we’re last; scarfgate debunked; not a fan of Obamacare, but I did come out ahead; all those poor […]

Do No Harm

Published on January 21, 2015 By bmagnus

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 […]

Eat It

Today’s question: Do you tend to order the same thing at restaurants? Or do you like to jump around the menu? Answer: yes. It depends where I am. There are places where I just want the one or two things that I know are awesome. There are other places where I am busy trying new […]

Music Monday: Weezer

In Closing: Reading about the people justifying torture can seem like they are torturing the truth; a few police brutality and racism items; common sense may not be common; TPP; she can’t be trusted to make a decision regarding having a baby, but she can somehow be trusted with a baby. Oh, and one last […]

Fear-mongering at its finest.

The TSA really doesn’t like that Apple and Google both have products they can’t just hack remotely. As in, they are trying desperately to make them stop it. Poor babies may actually have to get search warrants. Oh, and here’s a nice article on some of the NSA’s computing issues and an item on how […]

Music Monday: Retro Revival

Published on July 7, 2014 By bmagnus

Just a friendly reminder though: there is a difference between a fine booty and a fat ass. In Closing: a few birth control and other women’s issues items; this is why net neutrality is important to you even if you didn’t know it; a couple random NSA and CIA items (you know, they could halt the scandal by shuttering the […]

Only Shorties Left Alive

Published on June 28, 2014 By bmagnus

Ok, I know why some of you are here: to get your sweet sweet dose of NSA links. Turns out not: There’s no shortage of STEM workers. There may, however, be a shortage of STEM workers who want to work for crappy wages. Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me: Which of these inventions is likely to be […]

No Shortie Lives

Ok, just so you know, air quality in Vegas is absolutely awful today because of the massive fire on Mount Charleston. This also means that Vegas’s favorite get-out-of-the-heat spot is closed. So on with the Shorties. A Few Words on Abortion: Don’t want one? Don’t have one. Don’t think others should have them? Support birth […]

Hot Hot Hot

Not a long post today. The projected high around here is 115, and we are on track to set a new all-time record high of 118 on Sunday. And guess what? July is our hot month! Helicopters are grounded (just as well, I hate helicopters). Planes are taking the unusual pattern of landing from the West, […]

Creative Accounting, or GO REBELS!

So Jeff Skilling got a new sentence handed down for his role in the financial shenanigans at Enron. Actually, it’s a reduction of the sentence he was given back in 2006 for stuff that happened throughout the 90s and caused the company’s collapse in 2004. In case you’ve forgotten: Enron’s collapse put more than 5,000 […]
