It's a common logical fallacy that the length of time a person spends doing something is directly proportional to their abilities at that thing. For example, from a decade or so ago, "I've been training weimaraners for 40+ years." I'm sorry, but that doesn't mean you've been doing it well.

I'm tired of people spelling my name "Eric." If you're a professional, and you're sending me an email, you look like a moron when you type "Eric" given that my name probably appears about four times within a few inches of the place where you type "Eric."

I know it's just a Wednesday, and making Leap Day a worldwide holiday would be irresponsible and silly, but then again, why not? Who doesn't need a little more silliness in their day to day lives?
Uhm, so, yeah.
I've decided that, three or four times a week, I'd like to drink a small glass of red wine (finishing off one bottle per week). I'll drink late at night when I'm sitting on the couch to watch a little TV (typically around 11 or 12) as I settle down before going to bed. I've […]
