Not a bad perspective...
Ha! Touché!

A fist-bump to whoever created this image... "All this technology is making us antisocial."

Of all the problems I first imagined with Jeff Bezos' daydream of Amazon drone deliveries, I have to admit these never crossed my mind...

Comet ISON is set to slingshot around the Sun this week, and NASA has laid out three options for what might happen as a result--it breaks up, burns up in the Sun's atmosphere, or survives. I can't believe they didn't mention the fourth option--ISON travels back in time and helps the crew of the Enterprise save the humpback whales...

Saddened to learn that Scott Carpenter, one of the last Mercury 7 astronauts passed away this week. Carpenter went on to pursue a distinguished career with the Navy's SEALAB program, studying the effects of saturation diving for extended underwater work. In memory of a truly remarkable life, here is Cmdr. Carpenter's phone call with President Lyndon Johnson while he was in a helium-atmosphere decompression chamber. Goofy voice aside, it's a glimpse into the life of one of the giants of that generation whose shoulders we stand on today. (The next time you're at a kid's birthday party, inhale on a balloon and do your own Scott Carpenter impression as a tribute!)

I am not normally a man given to hyperbole. But please bear with me as I say that this video justifies the entire creation of the Internet, from the file-sharing networks of CERN in the 1970s until the present time. Every cat video, online poker tournament, nudie pic of Sara Michelle Gellar--every last byte of data--has been leading up to the creation and dissemination of this video. Thank you, Internet--it's been a fun ride, but you have now officially served your purpose, and your services are no longer required...

So, after nearly a year of running Ice Cream Sandwich on a rooted Samsung Galaxy Tab because I was tired of waiting for Samsung to roll it out (nevermind Jellybean!), I finally got sick of the battery drains, wifi drops and other minor glitches I was experiencing and decided to unroot and go back to stock Honeycomb. And what's the first thing that happens once the dust settles and I'm back to factory defaults? You guessed it--AN OTA UPDATE TO ICS!!!

Sitting in a parking lot playing Minecraft PE on my iPod while waiting for an Ingress portal to cool down so I can hack it again. In my truck with the Garrison Carida logo on it. And I'm wearing my Jayne Cobb hat. I'm just one Jethro Tull CD away from being to geeky to be allowed in the general population...
