Looking for a book in the free prime (or even the paid unlimited) library is like looking for your favorite show on Amazon's free prime TV...

(But I still love the hell out of my Kindle for its utility, even if it's no cheaper than print.)

R.I.P. homebrew solder/elasticity/adhesive-less 6v batteries that were so dependable with such easy-to-replace AAA cells is that I desecrated them by taping two together for a 12-volt for some short-term project...

More than bespoke higher voltage kind of cool hacker vibe batteries, my thirsty remote controls need the AAAs inside them, so I gotta pull a Giving Tree on this thing...

Okay, they powered an astonishing number of little motors and boards and projects for years, but I think I've hit the limit for post length commemorating homebrew battery cells before their cannibalisation... :-P

If you ever get upset about living right now, remember that one day "Ice Ice Baby" will be considered classical music...

I just had to switch from the NFC championship to Criminal Minds because the former was too depressing.

Being a grown-up is weird. I'm in a tent full of delicious food and all I want is the fresh vegetables...

My Most Symbolism-Laden Dream Ever: I dreamt Trump turned out to be Bain from Batman (but also affiliated with Bain Capital), and he took a child hostage from an indifferent police force. I used a treasured Hopi Indian statue to chip away his mask and the cloth demon underneath died as soon as he was exposed to sunlight. This allowed me to clear the obstructive cobwebs from a monument to intellectualism so that college students could again pass through it instead of mindless image-based paths to adult success.
