  • Admission fee to bookstores

     

    Could this have saved Borders? No one has stopped reading, they’ve just gotten cheaper. Going to the library isn’t nearly as trendy as shopping online.

  • Prisoners Want to Date Too (Don’t Tell Me You’re Surprised)

     

    “These inmates have nothing but time on their hands and can’t wait to hear from you.” This is landing page message on meet-an-inmate.com. No, I’m not personally dating anyone incarcerated.

  • Million Mustache March (one million strong, & growing!)

     

    No, no, this isn’t a joke. It wasn’t a joke when I heard it on NPR while out doing errands the other day. It wasn’t a joke when I came across it again on ABC news. The American Mustache Institute (founded in 2006) is completely serious in their request for a tax break. This past Presidents […]

  • How Not Knowing about Cell Phone Tracking and Other Technology Is Ridiculous

     

    R&B artist Rockwell nailed it in 1984 when he sang the lyrics, “I always feel like somebody’s watching me…and I got no privacy.” Privacy is increasingly becoming an illusion, either you can be in on the trick or keep “oooh and ahhh-ing” every time something tracking is revealed. I myself, would rather be in on […]

    I’ll be eating an angus beef burger in the meantime. There isn’t much I know about 19-year-old actor Angus T. Jones, other than he’s on a show I forgot still existed, and Charlie Sheen was the star of until he went bat shitz crazy last year.  I vaguely recall reading a few years back how […]
