 Politically Correct Terrorism – ABC’s Castle (March 09, 2011 at 3:53 PM )
I am not a typical TV viewer. I care about college football and probably watch too many games during the collegiate football season. Other than that, I rarely watch TV as I prefer to spend my free time on other...

 Report on the E3Expo (June 17, 2010 at 10:57 PM )
The E3 Expo was quite interesting with many new products. The most significant of which was seeing Sony's and Microsoft's response to the Wii. The long-term implications of Microsoft's solutions were fascinating.

 Cool Space Game (June 07, 2010 at 2:56 PM )
Someday I still hope to design and publish my own space strategy game. In the meanwhile, I've been playing Sins of a Solar Empire - a realtime strategy (RTS) game that is a lot of fun with great graphics for...

 True Words by a Liberal Talking Head (March 03, 2010 at 6:39 PM )
I was channel flipping a few weeks ago when everyone was talking about Scott Brown, the Republican who just won the special election for the late Senator Kennedy's seat. Some liberal talking head who I didn't recognize was responding to...

 Great Low-Budget Marketing (March 03, 2010 at 4:29 PM )
The Dallas Tea Party organization produced a very inexpensive ad that probably was very effective in recruiting potential members. They responded to one of the arrogant talking heads at MSNBC in such a delightful way that will make you laugh...

 Advertising vs. Entertainment (October 15, 2008 at 10:18 AM )
When I make the time to play games (and I would like to make the time to get involved in gaming again now that my children are getting old enough to play too), I play for entertainment and escapism. I...

 Quotes from Tomorrow's Authors (March 29, 2007 at 2:28 PM )
Every year, English teachers from across the country can submit their collections of actual similes and metaphors found in high school essays. These excerpts are published each year to the amusement of teachers across the country. I have posted the...

 "Trustworthy" Spam (December 12, 2006 at 7:31 AM )
I usually delete these emails as fast as they pop up, but something about this one caught my eye. Then I realized this would-be con artist simply does not understand American culture at all. This also reveals too much about...

 X-Man Warning (May 29, 2006 at 5:55 PM )
This public service announcement contains no spoilers. I took Lady Quixote, a X-Man fan, to X-3 on Saturday night. I’m not a fan of the X-Men, so I won’t capture my comments on the movie itself. However, I want to...

 Better Late Than Never (May 26, 2006 at 3:20 PM )
After 108 years, the unconstitutional and illegal phone tax will finally cease. After July 31, phone companies should no longer collect this tax (so check your bills in August). It only took the rulings of five appeals court to make...

 Mythology Alert (May 18, 2006 at 5:09 PM )
James Taranto, of the Wall Street Journal’s Best of the Web Today crafted an interesting sentence today. Without meaning to, they have painted a misleadingly Pollyannaish picture of Iraq, and that's the wrong way to counter the liberal media's misleadingly...

 Bloopers of al Qaeda in Iraq (May 04, 2006 at 1:26 PM )
The good guys just scored one in the terrorist media wars. Al-Zarqawi had previously released a video on the internet showing his prowess with machines guns as part of a campaign to convince fellow terrorists that they should listen to...

 Clean Fun (April 25, 2006 at 7:27 PM )
A friend of mine sent me a link to a fun game. Kid safe and a pure reflex game. Warning: it has sounds, so do not play at work unless you want people to know you are on break. It...

 Interesting Lyrics (January 30, 2006 at 8:51 AM )
Read the entire thing and then I will give the background. The Naughty Lady Of Shady Lane The naughty lady of Shady Lane Has hit the town like a bomb The back-fence gossip ain't been this good Since Mabel ran...

 Don't Watch (October 15, 2005 at 9:28 PM )
When I was a kid, I loved reading Douglas Adam's series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Last night I rented the DVD and watched the movie. It was horrible. I kept asking myself "Why did you like the books?"...

 Unbelievable (September 27, 2005 at 8:22 AM )
Long-time readers know I bleed orange. In other words, I am a huge fan of the Tennessee Volunteers. One of my treasured sports memories is going to Tempe, Arizona to watch the Vols defeat FSU and win the national championship....

 Another Interesting Poll (September 21, 2005 at 5:42 PM )
Today I spent a few minutes taking a political poll on the internet. Like most such polls, it is strongly biased based on what the authors think is important about politics. This particular poll is biased to the left and...

 Fantastic Movie (July 09, 2005 at 12:14 PM )
A fun summer flick with awesome superhero special effects.

 Over the Hump Day and Penguins (December 08, 2004 at 6:49 PM )
This is the last week of regular classes at my university. I just finished reviewing and grading the extensive presentations by thirty-some very smart and enthusiastic students over the last three class days. I then logged in to check my...

 "Theft-Proof" DaimlerChrysler (November 23, 2004 at 1:11 PM )
Jurgen Schrempp is the head of DaimlerChrysler. He used to drive the pride of his fleet, a Mercedes S600. The 500,000 (~$935,000) limousine with 5cm-thick steel plating, a landmine-resistant petrol tank and bullet-proof windows could drive on, even accelerate, after...

 Free Real-Time Space Simulation (November 11, 2004 at 4:01 PM )
I have had a review of Celestia on my desk for weeks, if not months, and have yet to make time to download it and try it out. So, I am going to post about it before I test it....

 USS Menagerie (November 09, 2004 at 2:28 PM )
Given the demands of life, I've taken an extended break from my wargaming, but I still keep up with some of the friends I made via this hobby. One of my old wargaming buddies has started writing science fiction that...

 Are You an Idiot Like Me? (September 14, 2004 at 9:26 PM )
Last week my intelligence was questioned by both the extreme left and right. From the loony left, my intelligence was insulted, along with that of many millions of other Americans, when John Kerry's wife stated: "only an idiot" would fail...

 Intelligent Bidding (September 12, 2004 at 7:36 PM )
If you use Priceline to bid on hotels, you may wonder what is a reasonable amount to bid. I just found another site where bidders may post their successful bids. These amounts should be the most you should bid. So...

 "Modern Day" Escher (May 07, 2004 at 9:58 AM )

 The Business Case for HDTV (May 05, 2004 at 12:38 PM )
Some friends and I were discussing our various perspectives on HDTV (High Definition Television). In the words of a participant from the UK: Sadly HDTV will be a crock. It always pays better to use the multiplex to send more...

 Silver Linings Humor in Tragedy (April 27, 2004 at 4:08 PM )
Divorce is a painful tragedy. One man has found a unique way to help cope with his circumstances. The rest of this post is from Ebay. Yes, Ebay, the internet's classified section. I'm archiving the entire post since Ebay does...

 Glorious Appearing (April 02, 2004 at 1:14 PM )
I read the twelfth and presumably final book in the Left Behind series. If have enjoyed the series, you will enjoy Glorious Appearing. It covers the triumphant return of Jesus Christ and wraps up the loose ends from the previous...

 The Perfect Politically Incorrect Gift (March 18, 2004 at 3:23 PM )
Last year, I made a promise after reading a funny column by Mike Adams. He is one of my favorite columnists and has earned a permanent link at my roundtable (under Court Jesters). He is a politically incorrect tenured professor...

 Saving the White House (March 12, 2004 at 2:30 PM )
Zombyboy showed me how President Bush and Condoleezza Rice could defend the White House if needed. Warning: not safe for young kids....

 Do Not Click on Link (March 05, 2004 at 4:26 PM )
This fiendish game is the latest threat to productivity. It took me 130 seconds to figure out the objective and solve it the first time. 28 seconds the second (and last) time......

 Cinematic Movie Reviews (February 06, 2004 at 2:24 PM )
Khobrah, the host of Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth, has set an ambitious review schedule for 2004. If you enjoy B movies, go visit. As Lady Quixote has said, his reviews are more fun than the movies themselves....

 Give Your Beauty a Beast (February 04, 2004 at 3:19 PM )
These words of "wisdom" come from New York. Looking for a little something special for your valentine? How about a hissing cockroach? For ten bucks, you can adopt a hissing cockroach for your sweetheart. The adoption includes a photo, cockroach...

 I Always Wondered (January 27, 2004 at 4:54 PM )
Mike has discovered the secret of chowmein. Well worth the look, but broadband helps....

 Imagine That (January 22, 2004 at 11:11 AM )
Imagine that you were not a law-abiding citizen, but you had set aside your morals. For some reason you became a car thief. You laugh at the morons who leave their vehicles relatively unprotected. These people are too stupid to...

 Shopping Under the Influence (January 21, 2004 at 10:41 PM )
A 27-year-old Belgian was almost jailed for smuggling marijuana into Brussels after visiting Amsterdam. However, the police released him shortly after picking him up. The man admitted that he'd been smoking marijuana in a coffee shop and had bought 140...

 My Kind of Woman (January 21, 2004 at 10:35 PM )
This thief entered the wrong pastry shop. Police say a masked man entered the baker's shop in Wetzlar. The knife-wielding raider ordered the 47-year-old woman working there to hand over cash. She reacted by taking several rolls and pieces of...

 Quiz of the Day (January 17, 2004 at 8:04 AM )
This morning I received a fun quiz from one of my readers (Bill B.). You have to answer four simple questions. The only trick is that you have to answer as quickly as possible....

 Predictions and Movie Reviews (January 13, 2004 at 11:29 AM )
Another blogger prediction has been fulfilled. Khobrah sent me an email stating my post motivated him to open his site. If you like movie reviews, go visit him. He specializes in the cinematic swordplay genre, but I have found him...

 An Improbable Dream (January 08, 2004 at 3:27 PM )
Posting political predictions is easy. So after posting mine, I decided to do something much more difficult. I have taken up another almost impossible challenge. Foolhardy as it may be, I shall run where the brave have not gone. Yes,...

 Biblical Puns (January 07, 2004 at 11:34 PM )
If you don't like bad puns, avoid this post. Make sure you don't read the comments too....

 More Reading (December 10, 2003 at 1:20 PM )
I've been called many things, but this week's Carnival of the Vanities was a first... Yours truly got top billing - maybe I should submit a light post more often. Chris did a great job hosting this week's COV and...

 A Mental Challenge (November 20, 2003 at 8:14 PM )
Paul C. (Florida) sent me this link. I had fun figuring out how it worked. I won't spoil it here, but if anyone wants an explanation, let me know and I'll put it in the comments....

 Anticlimactic Matrix (no spoilers here) (November 05, 2003 at 8:02 PM )
All work and no play brings out the curmudgeon in yours truly. Between working at my new job and fixing up the money pit we live in, I have not gone to a movie since the second Matrix flick. So...

 The Saga of Recluse (September 14, 2003 at 2:51 PM )
If you like Fantasy, you might enjoy the Saga of Recluse. Like his science fiction novels, L.E. Modesitt, Junior main theme is on how people use power. However, I do not recommend reading the novels in the order they were...

 For the Child in All of Us (August 29, 2003 at 9:53 PM )
I have three young children, two of which are old enough to use computers even if they are still preliterate. There are a lot of great games for them on the internet, but there are also many, many sites they...

I took a break yesterday and went to see Mattrix II. Well worth it! Very thin plot, but who cares? The special effects are incredible. Agent Smith is back as a super virus and can duplicate himself. Watching countless Agent...

 Suspension of Disbelief (March 31, 2003 at 1:53 PM )
When I watch a television show or a movie, I like to get caught up in it. Producers want to generate that experience, so watching a well-made production should be a win-win experience. Science fiction productions are especially difficult for...

 Wisdom from Britney Spears (February 04, 2003 at 6:47 PM )
This weeks Time (February 10, 2003) has a quote from Britney Spears after she visited the Sundance Film Festival. Sundance is weird. The movies are weird you actually have to think about them when you watch them. At first...
