TV’s Forgotten Golden Age

At a party last night, a friend was talking about how good TV is now, which I think we all generally accept as a given, and how much better it is than TV past. He mentioned 30 Rock, and my immediate reaction was that Cosby…

Schrödinger’s Scat

As we and others have been discussing quantum theories on the subatomic level, I think we could easily look at them on a much larger scale. Consider the idea of Superpoopsition, the idea that a piece of fecal matter exists in a toilet bowl in all its theoretical possibilities at once, which has been a difficult problem for theoretical physicists to solve and an even harder one for actual plumbers.

I’m asking you to donate a few bucks to help out a friend of mine. His name is Matt Villines, and he has cancer, and it’s late-stage cancer.

The Pork Chop Dinner I Choked Down In The Name Of Progress

I’m trying to learn to cook, using YouTube videos as my guide. For week number two of my mission, I decided to make Honey Garlic Pork Chops.

Excuse Me While I Dismantle Thunderf00t’s Anti-Sarkeesian Video With One Screenshot

Some YouTuber named Thunderf00t has a problem with Anita Sarkeesian. You can be forgiven if you don’t know who she is. She’s a feminist YouTuber who had the audacity to create a series of videos on anti-feminist tropes in video games. I respect her work.

This guy, Thunderf00t, hates Anita, her gaming-oriented mission, and feminism, in general.
