My son got to ask Neil deGrasse Tyson a question last night during an appearance in Detroit, Michigan. The question was a great one, and Mr. Tyson gave an excellent answer. 

I'm so proud of my son and I can't say enough great things about Mr. Tyson. He is an inspiration to my budding scientist and young minds everywhere!

Saw a picture of the Police Chief from Ferguson and had to do a double take. Thought it was Carroll O'Connor from In The Heat of the Night at first.

The IRS phone number is dysfunctional at best if you're looking to talk to a human being. 28 minutes and 4 menu loops and that's just to get into the queue to hold for someone. Should be another 20 minutes before I talk to a person. I can do it!

Yep, I made my son into a meme. Father of the Year, Baby!

Am I watching this because I like watching meat slow cook, or because they're giving away tons of prizes? 

Either way, I have to get back to the video!

It would be cool if they threw in some Easter eggs to see who is paying attention. Maybe replace the brisket with an apple turnover for 15 seconds four and half hours in.

Viral videos. Whenever I see them, I'm compelled to start the video to see what makes the video so popular. 

But I never watch the whole thing. My attention span is that short

The video starts, and I immediately start clicking ahead through the scenes to get the gist of what it's about. Then I move on. Am I alone in this?

Nope. I do the same thing. I love it that some videos give you thumbnails. Saves on actually clicking until I find something interesting. Sometimes... I don't even watch more than 3-5 seconds worth (and that is a lot!)

I run a #Minecraft  website using #WordPress  and I'm currently using bbPress on the site.

Feedback from users has been that they'd like to see me use a different solution. Are there any forums solutions you swear by? It can be either a WP plugin or a standalone solution. 

My criteria: Easy to use, makes it easy for users to find the newest posts, and has the ability for users to see all the newest posts since their last visit. 

Thank you so much for your input.

If you write an essay and post it on a blog, does that immediately make it a blog post, or is it an essay posted on a blog?

Good question.

My dad served in Vietnam. I am so very thankful he didn't die on the battlefield, but he was affected by Agent Orange.  I am eternally grateful to my father, and the millions and millions of veterans who have sacrificed their lives, limbs, and health for this great nation over the centuries.
