Will You Be Assimilated?

For years I’ve been warning you about the dangers and futility of social media. I have t-shirts in my shop, some of them the very first designs, that talk about what is really the product in the Facebook world. Finally the truth has come out – read about it in mainstream media – and for some reason you are all surprised that you and all the personal information that you posted have been used as the product.

My Reusable Christmas List

I’ve seen a lot of changes of the Christmas holiday through the years and some things that never change. Every year people still complain about the lack of religion in the holiday but this is the first year I’ve heard of a mall offering “Selfies with Santa”.

Santa has never thought me a good enough boy to get everything I wanted even though I’ve been using the same Christmas list for over a half century. Granted the meanings of the items have changed over the years but I think its still the same basic list. I’ll let you decide. Old pictures are on the left, updated list items on the right.

Loving This Time of Year

It’s late fall and the early morning grass is covered in frost. The sun stays low in the sky even at noon and it never really warms us.

Coats and sweaters hide (somewhat) the fact that we never worked on our summer tan or lost those extra pounds trying to look good in a swim suit.

This is not what you want to see first thing in the morning.

I think I may have mentioned before that I am not a morning person. As you can see on my t-shirt design pictured below, my daily prescription is coffee in the morning to get started and bourbon in the evening to relax. As a result I have no problem-solving skills until around 10:30 AM. So when I was faced first thing in the morning with a clogged needle on my indispensable coffee dispenser, I was devastated.

Which is Heavier?

When I was a very young boy one of my mentors asked me, “Which is heavier, a pound of lead or a pound of feathers?”

I was about eight years old and that question required a little bit of thought. I knew from watching Road Runner cartoons that whenever the coyote is carrying a case of Acme lead off of a cliff he falls faster than the lead so that it lands on top of him after he hits the ground. This made me think that lead must be lighter than a coyote. Continue reading “Which is Heavier?”
