A philosophy professor who died earlier this year was making so little money at age 61 he lived in a room in a dilapidated boardinghouse. The story of Dave Heller is focusing attention on the plight of the temp college teacher.

Every statement in this is factually accurate. Which makes it at least twice as funny to me. 😂

Puerto Rico, a remote island of American citizens with little to no representation in the United States federal government, is in desperate need of fairness and remedy. This video explains why, and it's the US government's own doing that created this disaster.

Personal Interests
  • Somewhat of a Google "fanboy" since The Year Two Thousand.
  • Good without god(s); agnostic atheist, with appreciations for:
    • The philosophy of Yeshua ben Yosef, of Nazareth (without the Yahweh/Jehovah part)
    • Daoism
    • Thelema
    • Norse mythology
    • Greek mythology
    • Buddhism
    • Anton LaVey is my homeboy \m/
  • Politics: Libertarian. Anarchist. Socialist. Voluntaryist. Egalitarian.
    • The philosophy of Yeshua ben Yosef, of Nazareth (without the Yahweh/Jehovah part)
    • My Test Results:
    • Like Stephen Colbert, I don't see skin color. I also don't see hair color, eye color, nationality, race, heritage, gender, gender identity, sex, sexual preference, handicap, disability, weight, height, or any other purely circumstantial aspect of an individual. I just see people; namely, their personalities and their decisions.
      • Everyone deserves a chance. Discrimination of any form is not allowed in my stream. If I see it, I'll block it. (This includes <circumstantial characteristic>-only events, fundraisers, charities, etc.! One demographic is no more deserving than any other.)
  • Science-based interests include (and I would like to have PhDs in)...
    • Astrophysics
    • Psychoanalysis
    • Neuropsychiatry
    • Computer science
  • Organizations I support (financially as well as philosophically)

Bio from Facebook (to be assimilated)

I have over ten years of experience in various Web development roles using a myriad of Web-based technologies, ranging from client side technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to server side technologies such as Perl, PHP, Python, and Java. I'm also fully capable as a DBA, having amateur and professional experience with RDBMSes such as Oracle 9i/11g, IBM DB2, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. I've also served in several IT roles as system administrator and network architect, both in professional and amateur environments. I work well on both small and large teams, and I have experience with multiple types of development process management, such as the more traditional "waterfall" approach as well as newer agile methods, such as XP and Scrum.

Proud father and husband. JavaScript junkie (for hire). Free software advocate. All around cool guy.

Need to get something off your chest or confide in someone? I'm your man.

I'm a bit of a hodgepodge. I don't adhere to any one specific teaching or school of thought. In the past, I've used labels to help define who I am. Now, I'm just me. Accept me or not, I change for myself and myself alone.

I actually love this place's food and atmosphere... But they have a persistent rodent infestation problem, so I don't eat here anymore. I really wish they'd clean the place up, because I'd love to go back.

The one time I actually called the place due to a delivery that was running late, I could barely understand the person on the phone. However, considering I order food from here via Foodler multiple times per month, and this has only happened once, I consider this occurrence to be a fluke. I've never had any negative experiences with the quality of the food from Lucky Star. The crab rangoons are second to none.

Every time I get food from Cosi, I'm left wondering why. The food costs twice as much as it should, if not more, and the bread is unbelievably hard and tough, making my teeth ache by the time I'm done. Is their bread just always stale when I get it?! I wouldn't feed their bread to my family, at any rate... if the bread in my pantry felt like the bread at Cosi, I'd throw it out and go buy something fresh! Now I have a tooth ache and I feel poor. Thanks, Cosi!
