Plato Interview

Plato and I had a bit of a rough night out on Friday night and so yesterday we didn’t feel like doing much. After our workout in the afternoon, we went and had dinner at Cedar’s followed by a viewing of The Simpson’s movie at the Metro. The Simpson’s movie was exactly like the show, but stretched out over an hour and a half… decent hangover entertainment.… read more “Plato Interview”

Eastpak Backpack Review

I have owned my Eastpak backpack since my junior year of high school. The trusty Eastpak bag has seen me through my final two years of high schoo, my four years of college and one year in the working world and has never let me down. That’s 7 years of daily hard usage put onto one backpack and it has held up extremely well.… read more “Eastpak Backpack Review”

TVI

Last August, I had a brilliant idea. I rarely call my own ideas brilliant, but I think that this one will be truly revolutionary for online public relations and reputation management. I call it the “TruV1ew 1ndex”, after one of my company’s two main products.

A little background: I work for Vis. Tech. on the TruV1ew team as a business analyst.… read more “TVI”

Yet another preacher exposed for fraud.

A scumbag preacher from Ghana just got caught having an stage magic device that he used to trick people into believing that they had experienced a “miracle”.

America’s weight is growing faster than it population

I was refreshed to read a blog this morning that was very politically incorrect about the obese epidemic in America. Being obese is not something that our society should try make acceptable. Fat is a disease that is killing millions of people and causing various disabilities in millions more. Not only are they hurting themselves, but they are hurting others who have to pay for their medical and unemployment benefits via Social Security and Medicare.… read more “America’s weight is growing faster than it population”

The days before computers

How did people survive in the days before the internet and computers? I can’t imagine trying to have to maintain a file system instead of a database. Every time I wanted to open a file, I’d have to walk over to the files system, open a cabinet, hunt out the file i need, carry it back to my desk and open it and then reverse the process when I’m done.… read more “The days before computers”

Dante’s Inferno Frat Bar

Fletch and I were hanging out yesterday and went to a coffee shop on the Ave called Starlife and drank some coffee and played chess. Post chess, we walked up to a little park and Fletch hopped on the merry-go-round and I spun him around till he was nauseous. As we walked back towards Trader Joes, I saw a sign outside of Dante’s (a bar) that said “$2 wells” and wordlessly pointed to it and we both just turned and went in.… read more “Dante’s Inferno Frat Bar”
