Gibberish Changes in 2014

Gibberish Changes in 2014

I’ve been really lucky this year to have the opportunity to write more frequently. I attribute part of this to the support I receive from Sedagive?, giving up StarCraft 2 and the jobs I’ve been taking lately, including my current full-time job. My quality of life has been on the rise, and I hope it […]

Best and Worst Gibberish Gadgets of 2013

I wrote 66 product reviews this year, just one shy of my record. I made a concerted effort to diversify my reviews this year, and I covered music, games, movies, fitness gear and methodologies, household appliances, survival and preparedness items and a few guns along the way. At the end of they year I like […]

Cards Against Humanity Combats Inhumanity

Cards Against Humanity Combats Inhumanity

I was one of the lucky 100,000 to get in on the Cards Against Humanity 12 Days of Bullshit promotion this year. The promotion was $12, and they sent me (or tried to send me) one day for every day leading up to Christmas. Of course, the USPS fucked it up, but hey, CAH tried. […]

How to Assemble an IKEA Markus Office Chair Video

I have returned to sitting at my office desk. The main reason is so I can share the same space with Sedagive? — she’s significantly shorter than I am and my standing setup made it impossible for her to be near me. Our office area isn’t big enough for BOTH of us to have standing […]

The NSA Responds to My FOIA Request

The NSA Responds to My FOIA Request

Two weeks ago I wrote to the NSA and requested my phone records and any records of my Internet activity via a Freedom of Information Act request. On June 26, 2013 the NSA denied my FOIA request and refused to confirm or deny that they had any information about me. I’ve redacted my case number […]

Installing an iSpring Reverse Osmosis Water Filter

Where we live in Minnesota has terrible water. It’s full of junk, tastes nasty, stains our clothes, and causes all sorts of problems with our coffee maker. It was hard for me to drink the water, even after running it through a Brita filter. I would hold my breath a chug a glass of water […]

Nope nope nope

Nope nope nope

That’s what Sedagive?’s older son Gojira said as he backed away from the basement stairwell. His younger brother G-Unit giggled like a boy possessed. What caused such a stir? A multi-legged monstrosity that I’ve battled both in Minnesota and in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The house centipede. Tags: featured, minnesota, mutant insects

Let Me Be Strong Enough to Carry the Burden

Let Me Be Strong Enough to Carry the Burden

A far flung Internet acquaintance of mine committed suicide last month. He was a member of one of the training groups to which I belong, and while I never met him personally he was well known and liked by the community. To paraphrase something I read : when someone dies, the burdens they carried do […]

Happy Birthday Pearl! 2013 Edition

Happy birthday to our Lady Moose, my youngest dog Pearl. She turns six years old today. I can’t believe it. Pearl, like the other dogs, has had a great year. The biggest improvement to her quality of life has been the raw food diet. I owe this 100% to Sedagive?, who did all of the […]
