Is that a gun in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?

Is that a gun in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?

I wrote about the SmartCarry deep concealment handgun holster in June of 2008. I had worn it around a few times, and while it was comfortable enough, I still couldn’t get the hang of living with it on. It really is an “assault diaper,” and fits very snugly around my waist, with the pistol right […]

Clue Express board game review

Clue Express board game review

I have only won like twice in my whole life, but I like the board game Clue. I think it was one of the first games I played with a lot of pieces. I can still remember the pistol clearly; it was a pepperbox-style hand gun with a rounded grip. Anyway, I was searching for […]

Hypothesis: Fake American Civil War 2 Geopolitical Outcome – Part Two

Hypothesis: Fake American Civil War 2 Geopolitical Outcome – Part Two

This is a continuation from my post about two weeks ago discussing the fictional breakup of the United States. The first post talked about the “official” theory from a Russian political theorist, and how he obviously knew jack shit about America since South Carolina was allied with New York state. No fucking way, even if […]

P90 Home Fitness Program: Doldrums

P90 Home Fitness Program: Doldrums

It’s been almost a month since I last wrote about P90. The holidays, a looming layoff, and just general apathy crushed almost all of my desire to get in front of the television and mimic Tony Horton. I just finished session 78, which means I grunted through twelve sessions in almost thirty days. I should […]

Gmail Manager review

Gmail Manager review

I have two Gmail accounts — one for personal use, and one associated with my online persona. Switching back and forth between the accounts to get all my hate mail became tedious almost immediately. I found GAlert, a desktop program that monitors multiple Gmail accounts and notifies you when you have new email. Google changed […]

It was not a booty text

It was not a booty text

I got this text message over the weekend from “Marietta”: (favecute.com) Gail said you would really want to see that site I was obviously suspicious, but the text was relevant enough as to be an actual text. I don’t know a Marietta, but I do know a Gail from the contract prior to my current […]

Lessons learned from nine hours without power

Lessons learned from nine hours without power

My home lost power last Saturday in the middle of the night. It was unusually cold for this part of Virginia, and I think the cold plus everyone cranking their heat crushed the power network. I woke up to my home network’s uninterruptible power supply screeching at 2AM. I shut the computers down and went […]

Rock Island Armory 1911 Government Model Pistol Review

My search for an inexpensive 1911 handgun and a memory from almost two dozen years ago leads me to the Rock Island Armory 1911 Government pistol.

Hypothesis: Fake American Civil War 2 Geopolitical Outcome

Hypothesis: Fake American Civil War 2 Geopolitical Outcome

The Wall Street Journal recently published an article discussing a theoretical collapse of the United States in 2010. Igor Panarin presented his theory in 1998, and cites mass immigration, economic collapse, and moral decline as key triggers to a second American civil war that will fragment the US into four pieces, with Alaska going back […]

AccessoryOne HTC Touch Verizon VX6900 USB Charging Cradle Dock Review

AccessoryOne HTC Touch Verizon VX6900 USB Charging Cradle Dock Review

I love my HTC Touch (known as the VX6900 on the Verizon network). I use it for all sorts of stuff: check Gmail, send text messages, approve Gibberish comments, listen to Internet Radio awesomeness Pandora.com, use the built-in GPS and Google Maps, and sometimes I even call people on it. Even though the upgrade to […]
