Rm9sbG93ZXJz: The Worst X-Files Episode Ever

I love the X-Files. I love it in spite of the fact that some episodes are just not very good. In X-Files season 11, the episode “Rm9sbG93ZXJz” is the worst X-Files episode I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen them all. What’s the premise of “Rm9sbG93ZXJz”? It’s basically, hundreds of robots harass Fox Mulder and Dana

Income Inequality in the US Keeps Getting Worse

If you don’t care about income inequality, and you think the richest 20 percent of Americans should control 85 percent of our nation’s wealth, well, if you believe that, then these are good times for you. If however you see this huge cavern between the wealthiest incomes and the rest of us, you should be

The GOP Is Dead

I’ve said this with total seriousness at least 3 times in my life, but this time, I think it’s true. The GOP is dead. There’s no possible way for the Republican Party to recover from Donald Trump. It will eventually come up that Trump engaged in unethical and criminal behavior while GOP leaders knew about

I Did This

On June 8, 2001, I purchased a Browning Buck Mark semi-Auto rimfire pistol. I paid $312 for it. I still have the receipt. When I bought it, I had no idea it would be the gun that would end my son’s life 15 years later by my own hand. At the time, my wife was

On July 1, 2016, Stephen Brunby, 14, went to the Noon Gun Shooting Range in Sarasota, Florida to learn about gun safety, being a man and protecting his family. Instead, Stephen’s father accidentally shot and killed him. Stephen’s brother David, 12, saw what happened. Apparently a shell casing fell into the shirt pocket of William

Shooting Death: David C. Brown, 46, Cheektowaga, New York

On Tuesday, July 5, 2016, David C. Brown, 46, was shot and killed in Cheektowaga, New York. The early reports from local news that Brown was apparently part of some “love triangle” gone bad. The shooting took place on Marne Road some time before 10PM. The following are notes of initial research on the name

Evidence #324 that Stupid People Are Breeding

This week a 4-year-old kid fell into a gorilla enclosure at a zoo and zoo personnel killed the gorilla to save the boy’s life. Obviously everyone was freaked out that a zoo would have a gorilla exhibit that a 4-year-old could fall into. Not exactly. Social networks lit up with crazy ass motherfuckers, some of

Is this Story Real? 248,000 Veterans Die Waiting for Health Care from VA

There’s a Huffington Post story that is suggesting that 248,000 soldiers have died waiting for Veterans Affairs health care. The whistleblower, Scott Davis, provided the Huffington Post with a Veterans Affairs report that includes this statistic. While there’s little doubt that the VA could be better, this statistic alone doesn’t really tell us much. For

Review: eLeaf Lemo 2

I’ve been vaping ejuice for a couple of months with my dreadnaut clone. The dreadnaut is a dripper and I wanted to try a vape with a tank so I bought an eLeaf Lemo 2. I love it. The dreadnaut is a big bulky hunk of metal. The Lemo2 two is slim and light. What

Review: Dreadnaut Mechanical Mod Clone

I’m new to mechanical mod vaporizers. My first one is a Dreadnaut clone that I bought for $50 on eBay. This mod, like most, don’t come with coils. So I used some 28-gauge Kanthal. I turned it 7 times on a 2mm rod. That gave me 1.5 ohms. That worked, but it was a bit

How to Make Your Own Herbal Tincture at Home

Making your own herbal tinctures at home saves money, is healthy and let’s be honest, it’s fun. I make my tinctures for my mechanical mod rebuildable vaporizer. Currently I’m using a dreadnaut clone I bought on eBay for $50. It works great and I’m super pleased with it. But you don’t need to vaporize herbal

How the credit card industry stole $80 from me

I run an online business that accepts payments via Paypal. It’s a subscription model, so people are billed every month. One of my customers got caught up in one of the giant hacks at Target or Home Deport, or whatever. In response to her card getting stolen, the bank challenged every single charge on her

My Government in Silver Spring, Maryland

I just moved to Silver Spring, Maryland. Silver Spring is way bigger in size and population than the town in Vermont I moved from, but Silver Spring doesn’t have a local government. All of the unincorporated and incorporated “towns” in Montgomery County are all governed at the county level. It seems to be working. The

Peet’s Coffee & Tea

If Alfred Peet’s goal in 1966 was to create a chain of coffee shops serving mediocre coffee, Peet has succeeded. I always thought Peet’s was just a little bit better than Starbucks, but it’s actually worse than Starbucks. I just moved to a new area, and so I don’t know where the good coffee shops

CIA Director Calls Torturers “Patriots”

I don’t know what the fuck country CIA Director John Brennan lives in, but in the country I live in, people who torture living creatures, particularly fellow human beings, are sick fucks who should be in prison. They are not “patriots.” Brennan, also known as Cunt or The Cunt to his friends, admits that it

Obama’s Torture Fail

Our Nobel Peace Prize President of the United States has failed in many ways, but there’s no greater failure than his unwillingness to pursue criminal charges against those in our government that decided to torture human beings. Both President Bush and Vice President Cheney have publicly admitted that they were not only aware of the

GOP to Blacks, Latinos and Poor – Don’t Vote

As the white majority in America not-so-quietly fades into the sunset of history, it’s not surprising that the party of over-privileged white people doesn’t want brown people to vote. Since the GOP got trounced in 2008 by record turnout of non-whites, something had to be done. Fortunately, conservatives did well in the state legislatures in

The Nation: FBI Burglar Breaks 43 Years of Silence

The Nation has an excerpt from a newly-released book about one of the FBI burglars who stole and leaked documents exposing the extent of J. Edgar Hoover’s “massive, clandestine political spying and extreme, even violent, dirty tricks operations.” The book is about admitted burglar Judi Feingold and her life underground since the 1971 break-in. While

Equality and Progress

Since I was a kid in the ’70s and ’80s when people openly calls gay men fags, we’ve come a long way. While there will always remain a loud sliver of the population that just can’t progress, the rest of us have moved on. That’s the message from the courts today, the ballot box and
