The RNC Polled Me

The Republican Party sent me a survey. Some of the questions are posted here: Do you support President Bush's tax plan recently passed by Congress to create more jobs and improve the economy? Should small business be encouraged to grow and hire more workers? Do you support President Bush's initiative to allow private religious and […]

Cigar Fraud

Very funny. So funny that I'll type it here in case the link goes dead. A man from Charlotte, North Carolina, having purchased a case of very expensive cigars, insured them against, among other things, fire. Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile, the man filed a claim against the insurance company, stating that […]

QotD: Hiding Places

Question: Where do you hide your porn? My Answer: If Playboy counts, then I don't hide it at all - it's front and center in my den just above the Maxim row of mags. And, well, that's about the only naked women in my apartment. Photographs of them, anyway. You are encouraged to answer the […]

Pittsburgh 14, Denver 17

And so our anemic offense costs us a game once again. Six points off of three turnovers. A dropped interception at the end, some soft play, and some lame penalties. That's all she wrote. It was a good game, and the Steelers defense really played well. The offense was horrible. Tommy was cautious - and […]

Easy as Spam

Who in the hell opens messages that look like this? This is a screenshot of the subject column of my spam folder. If people didn't open spam - and worse yet - buy products advertised in spam - I wouldn't need a spam folder. That having been said, I may not need a spam folder […]

QotD: Penny

Question: Should the penny be "end of lifed?" My Answer: Yes. I think all transactions should be rounded to the nearest nickel (0, 1, 2 round down, 3, 4, 5 round up). And hey, if you want an 18-cent piece, read this. (Update: the article no longer works, but it stated that an 18-cent piece […]

I'm on the phone with MCI again. This is the 48th time I've had to call about my $158.89. The 48th Fucking Time. Why the fuck MCI can't get their act together and just fix this is beyond me. Today alone I've been transferred to four different departments. I spoke with a supervisor who said […]

Flamingo to Daytona

Tuesday and Wednesday of this week I embarked on a trek. Rising each day at 4:00am, and on the road by 4:30am each day for a 7:00am launch time, I drove 280 and 380 miles (round trip totals) to Flamingo and Daytona, FL. I fished the first day in Everglades National Park with Charlie, and […]

Easy Comment Deletion

Thanks to Judi, I've implemented this method of easily handling comment spam. What I'd really like is a link that does a few things: Deletes the comment. Rebuilds the entry. Adds the IP to the block list. All in one click. I don't plan to implement the comment queueing trick because I think that people […]

QotD: Mosquitoes

Question: How do you deal with mosquito bites? My Answer: Toothpaste. Yes, you read correctly. Dab a little toothpaste on, rub it in, and the itchy feeling goes away. It cools and comforts. I think it has to do with the fluoride or something. Anyway, it works. And believe me, I know - I just […]

QotD: Peripherals

Question: What's your favorite peripheral, excluding keyboards and mice? My Answer: That'd easily have to be my iPod, though I value and really like everything else: my hard drive, my card readers, my CD-RW, my iSight, my cameras, everything. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or […]

QotD: Pop

Question: Coke or Pepsi? My Answer: Coke. C'mon, no contest! I haven't had a Pepsi in about six years. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.
