Maybe later
I broke up with Val a few weeks ago and I am trying to process all of the things going on inside my head.  Breakups in the past have been sometimes tricky but they were never full of hate and screaming and accusations of evil and this one is no exception.  ...

Sad days
Politics in Canada is making me sad these days.  The party currently in charge has decided to randomly mail out checks to people in a flagrant attempt to buy votes, and it seems to be working.   As Sthenno says , it is sad that so many people will vote Cons...

Oh Monsanto
I have seen a lot of yelling about GMO food lately and the whole subject clearly illustrates how willing people are to make false and misleading associations in pursuit of illusory simplicity.  Case in point:  Monsanto and GMOs.  Monsanto and their ilk are ...

Simply Bad
Everyone wants a simpler tax code.  Obviously there are a few accountants who are pretty happy for the extra work that labyrinthine tax rules create for them, but to hell with those people.  Everyone else, especially everyone running for public office, real...

Over time WOW dungeons have changed greatly.  In the beginning dungeons were often brutal mazes, designed for people to wander in and fight for hours without really knowing where they were going.  When entering a dungeon with a particular goal in mind you d...

Mixed up
For the past while Nathan Nun , an artist friend of mine, has been building art for my card game Camp Nightmare.  He has a big chunk of it done now and it is time for us to figure out what we are going to do with it.  It has me feeling a bit nervous and uns...

Gone Fishin'
It has been a month now that people in WOW have had access to the latest content so I figured I should review it.  My guild is 9/13 normal mode in Hellfire Citadel and so far I think it is well done.  There is a distinct progression ramp up throughout the z...

Get over here!
In Mortal Kombat the character Scorpion had an iconic line - "Get over here!"  He would utter it as he fired some kind of harpoon at his enemy, pulling them in and stunning them so he could deliver a devastating uppercut.  Everyone loves that!  In Heroes By...

Amp it up
Patch 2.3 is coming for Diablo 3 and it looks to be a hilarious increase in player power.  The main thing that will accomplish this is Kanai's Cube, which allows players to destroy legendary items to place their powers in the Cube.  They can then select 1 w...

Being Critical of Criticism
I found a very amusing page today called ThePoke that criticizes the front page of the Daily Mail.  I will admit that the Daily Mail is usually pretty terrible even for an internet news site but after viewing the page that was so critical of them I could ha...

A hero
Donald Trump is wasting no time making more controversial statements.  This time he is in a battle with Senator John McCain surrounding the term 'war hero'.  Many think that McCain is a war hero, and there is no doubt of his credentials - he was shot down o...

Basing the ball
Hobo and I were talking today about sports and how they could be made better for watching.  Having played baseball a lot while I was a kid I have thoughts on that sport in particular.  Baseball suffers from being very slow and having a tremendous amount of ...
