The Nuclear Tomato

What’s in a name? At one point in my high school experience, we happened upon an old 2-door, beat-up Datsun B210 that my dad was able to purchase from the owner for a whopping $50. I remember taking pride (oddly) in the fact that I had to pay more for insurance than we had paid [...]

Save the earth, one solar powered calculator at a time

There’s just something wrong about the fact that solar powered calculators do not have an off button. Even though it’s been this way for the several years that I’ve owned my Texas Instruments BA-35 Solar, I still check occasionally, just on the off chance that I’ve missed it all of these years. When I’m unable [...]

Losing the key to icy cool refreshment

It’s a wonder more people don’t steal bags of ice from the storage lockers outside convenience stores. I guess they don’t worry about those dishonest few who would snark a bag, since it’s so easy to make more. Or, more likely, they know that the percentage of bags stolen will be more than made up [...]

I went to the woods, but ended up playing Guitar Hero

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” Then I got cold, and a little hungry. So I came [...]

Who is responsible for the voice of Chewbacca?

I feel sorry for the Jar Jar Binks guy. I remember seeing little shorts on the Star Wars site leading up to the release of episode 1, where the Jar Jar guy would take us around and show us stuff on the set. I’m sure he was thinking about how great it was going to [...]

Wonder Sauna Hot Pants – watch TV in comfort and style

I’ve never owned a hot tub – they have always seemed like too much work for what you get out of them.  I like to do my relaxing in front of the T.V.  Well, with these Wonder Sauna Hot Pants, I could get the best of both worlds.  I’m sure these models rue the day [...]

Streets of silver

I remember the time I actually fell for the quarter glued to the sidewalk trick. Who wouldn’t stop to pick up a quarter? That’s like, almost a month of good luck. The worst part after trying to pick it up and realizing it is attached, is standing up and then trying to decide whether to [...]

Hot potato in a horse’s mouth

I once heard a story about a horse who bit a man on the shoulder while he was teaching it how to wear a bridle and saddle. After getting bit, the man went inside and baked a potato. He then placed the potato under his shirt on his shoulder, with a cloth to separate his [...]

The battle at breakfast – Me:0 – Frosted Cereal:1

This morning I was blinded by Frosted Mini Spooners. For those of you who don’t know, Frosted Mini Spooners are the ‘economically superior’ alternative to Frosted Mini-Wheats. Hey, I’m not proud – I don’t have to consume name brand cereal to feel above my fellow man. I poured my bowl like usual this morning, watching [...]
