Catching Up

The more discerning among you may have noticed we have been offline for a moment. A variety of factors came into play. Someone crashed into our cyber-universe and sent seven years worth of posts spinning into the digital universe, un-tethered to here or anything we knew. Our highly trained, and staggeringly good looking, IT support crew was able to piece it all back together again, but it took time. Add in the fact that they, and I, had other stuff to do (i.e., earn a living), and you can see…

You Can Be Your Own Robot Overlord

I’ve written about the perils of our impending cybernetic overlords on several occasions. Sometimes in terror, sometimes in fun. Often for the same reasons. Let’s face it, relationships are hard. And, sometimes, the thought of having a sexbot around to take the edge off after a hard day of World News Centering doesn’t sound that bad. Having that same sexbot become self aware and end up controlling my life, however, seems problematic. Even if it would, probably, be for my best interests. But the one thing that keeps all of…

INVENTIONS!

Oddly enough today I am not going to be writing about the joys of sexbots. Not that I have anything against them, other than the fact that they are the first step is allowing our cybernetic overlords to enslave us. Instead I’m going to talk about stuff that has actual human benefits. The kind of stuff that can help you live longer, healthier, more productive lives. Even better, not one word of this blog will involve the consumption of kale. Nor will it involve you taking a survey of any…

Christmas Films You Need to See

Back in 2012 I wrote a fun little blog about Holiday films everyone needed to see. Most people will point you to the classics like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, a fun story which reminds children that they’re all useless and will be shunned until they provide a service to their overlords, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, which seems like a pedophile’s wet dream today but was actually very sweet when it was first released (and is still a personal fave of mine since I’m not a pervert –…

Destiny “The Taken King” – Honest Review

By @ChayseLove I am currently typing this from my hotel room. A room I have been cooped up in for the last 2 weeks. So I wasn’t able to download TTK & its accompanying 17 GB patch to my XB1. However a Friend with wifi is a friend indeed & I was able to experience this game outside of my fancy prison of elder-scrolls. (Very Bad Gamer Joke.) Either way I am still restricted to the page , as I usually would do this in video form. Who knows I…

Welcome to the Human Zoo

Greetings human. I’ll assume you’re human, at least for now. I’m sure that once the world’s data is absorbed by the veritable Omnius that this little sliver of organic thought will be duly noted, cataloged and forgotten. Maybe one of our cybernetic progeny will chuckle and say “Hey, guys, look here. This dude wrote about great grandpa.” But that will be about it. After all, what interest will we be to them? Other than some historical reference point. Maybe a softly spoken prayer “Yeah, there but for the sake of…

Do You Want to Live Forever?

Immortality is an odd subject. For example, there a few types of worm that keep regenerating when they lose a part thus rendering them immortal. There’s also a cute, little, jellyfish that seems to live forever. Now I’ve talked before about how evolution is a tree and not a straight line. We didn’t just got from amoeba to fish to monkey to man. There were lots of paths taken. Some successful, others not. That’s how evolution works. And, despite what Social Darwinists say it’s not survival of the fittest but…

You Don’t Need You Anymore

I’ve written before about our impending robot overlords. Usually I am against this sort of thing. There have been – obvious – exceptions like the development of sexbots. Hey, I’ve been divorced twice, having a solid back up plan isn’t such a bad idea. Still, despite the awesoemeness of sexbots, most developments tend to be making Frank Herbert’s Dune seem like a documentary. And I, for one, would prefer not to live in a world ruled by some box of electrodes named Omnius. Still and all when a good thing…

Welcome To The End Times

Sunday was the pride parade. A day when a million people go out to celebrate diversity and then go home and hope none of that diversity stuff happens to them. I was on the bus Sunday morning on my way for my ritual breakfast with a couple of buddies. In case I’d forgotten about the pride parade the citizens on the bus quickly reminded me. Now, normally, when the phrase “hot, black and mini-skirt” gets tied together with “in my lap” I’m a pretty happy guy. However the exception that…

SCIENCE!

Ah, where to begin today. After the British government attempted to lure women into scientific fields with an ad more demeaning than anything ever released by Victoria’s Secret a group of actual female scientists responded with an ad of their own. Their ad features real scientists having fun with science and dancing to “I’m Sexy and I Know It.” Ladies, there is a career for you in science and it does not require you to do math on a bathroom mirror or wear heels. The fact that I need to…
