We’ve all heard the number 1 billion, but have you ever really considered how much $1 billion actually is. Consider this: I imagine most of us have spent $1,000 in one go before. Maybe a smart phone, laptop, new tires for your car, TV, whatever! It was probably a pretty painful day; $1,000 is a … Continue reading Capitalism is Broken

I follow a bunch of celebrities on social media. Probably not as many as a lot of people though, because I have a special rule for which celebrities I follow: Who would be cool to sit down and have a beer with? Of course this is highly subjective, not everyone would like to hang out … Continue reading Celebrities, Stalkers, and Social Media
I saw a news article the other day about Joe Rogan and some controversy over things he and a comedian friend said on a podcast years ago, and I rolled my eyes. I figured it was online backlash about something stupid he tweeted, on the lines of James Gunn’s and (more recently) Hartley Sawyer’s, that … Continue reading Joe Rogan & Cancel Culture
Music is important to me. REALLY important to me. I’m not sure I could live without it. My musical tastes vary quite a bit. My iTunes has everything from classical, to heavy metal. I’ve got 80’s pop music, and modern hip-hop; Techno, and a smattering of country. I collect it everywhere, and it isn’t always … Continue reading On the Importance of Music
I hit the gym occasionally. I'm far from a huge, buff dude, but I do try to take care of myself. I have my "50 years" plan where I'm going to try to get in the best shape of my life for the age of 50, but I still have a few years for that. … Continue reading “Steroids”!!
English is a stupid language sometimes. Actually, English is a stupid language a LOT of the time. Every now and then I come across a saying that makes no sense to me, and today I overheard someone say "It was the least I could do." You know the saying, I'm sure. You do something nice … Continue reading English is Stupid
Conspiracy theorists provoke a weird dichotomy of feelings in me. On the one hand I love conspiracies. I find them interesting. Listening to someone string together a hodge-podge of facts and theories to come to a bizarre conclusion is fascinating to me. I'm not sure precisely what I find so interesting; maybe its because I … Continue reading A COVID-19 Conspiracy?
I think I'm missing something. I woke up this morning and was browsing through the news headlines with my coffee, like I do every morning, when I saw a headline about Terry Crews. I quite like Terry Crews as an actor, and I follow him on a few social media platforms, so I thought I … Continue reading Terry Crews and Black Supremacy
I love Marvel movies. We own them all. In preparation for the release of Avengers: Endgame last year, my wife and I watched 11 Marvel movies, back to back. I've watched all the movies multiple times, and I tend to notice things that only hardcore fans notice; and I tend to (over) think of things … Continue reading Overthinking it: Everett Ross in Black Panther
One of my favourite things to do on social media is look at comments. Sometimes I'm looking for credibility on a post, and looking at comments leaves the work to other people. Sometimes I'm trying to see how closely my opinion follows others. Sometimes its for a laugh. To get what I'm looking for I … Continue reading Ironic Social Media Opinion
