A Couple More Random Things I Learned

Published on July 9, 2015 By bmagnus

I’ll keep it short but sweet. So, I go to a Jewish school: I only recently learned that for purposes of kosher cuisine, fish is not considered meat. I should have figured this out when I was 3 and learned the joys of bagels, lox, and cream cheese. However, I grew up in the kind of […]

Betty is Confused

Um yeah, Betty? Caesar salad usually contains romaine lettuce, not pasta. Yet another example of “good-for-you food rarely comes in boxes.”

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 […]

Fail.

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 […]

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 […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Habitual

Published on January 9, 2015 By bmagnus

Today’s question: Do you think you have more good habits or bad habits? I thought about going a little zen on this question and simply saying “yes.” I have good habits, I have bad habits, I don’t know that I ever bothered comparing the two. I suppose I’d like to think I have more good […]

Ok, Let’s Talk about Food

You know what would be a really good habit for 2015? Eating a better diet. Most of us could stand to do better. Furthermore, the cold hard reality is that 2 out of every 3 Americans need to lose some weight; one out of three needs to lose a lot of weight. There are a handful of […]

Big Bad Shorties

It’s the Food: It turns out that people do pay attention to nutrition labels. That’s a good thing, because soon and very soon obesity will overtake tobacco as the #1 killer of Americans. Have some truth in comic form. Zombies!!: Well sure, they aren’t allowed to try and collect it, but they can still claim you owe it! […]

Music Monday: Manic

Published on October 20, 2014 By bmagnus

  I was going to write something about Ebola, but the stupid out there is so strong it burns. Look I know that I’ve had a total of one course in Microbiology, but clearly I know more about the subject than 90% of Congress. Seriously, I hope I that Ron Paul, Joe Heck, and Howard Dean […]

Shorties Untold

Appetizers: Let’s start with the NSA poppers, and perhaps a beer flight to wash it down? Soup or salad: The soup du jour is puree of police violence and race issues with a hint of civil forfeiture, topped with prison visit data. Perhaps the lady would prefer our Cosmo-inspired salad with cranberry vinaigrette? The main […]
