10,000 Kettlebell Swing Challenge – Week 3

Two weeks ago, Sedagive? and I started the 10,000 kettlebell swing challenge. And by started, I mean did 200 swings and called it a day. In the spirit of not giving up, we’ve been doing the best we can to swing to 10,000 repetitions. Here’s what we’ve done and some preliminary results. Tags: 10000swings, featured, […]

In February of this year I backed the Ascension Online Kickstarter project, which sought to bring the card game Ascension to Windows and Android devices. The product was supposed to ship before the end of this year: By backing this project, you can finally answer the question that has confounded scholars for ages—“When is Ascension […]

eForcity Dual Playstation 3 Controller Charging Station Review

Holy CRAP I love buying consoles after their successors have launched. I bought a refurbished PlayStation 3 not too long ago for $150. It came with a controller. I needed more controllers, and so I bought some. For $10 – $12 each. Then I needed to buy a charging unit. So I bought one. For […]

Trigger Guard Holster for Kel-Tec PF-9 Review

Small single-stack 9mm pistols like the Kel-Tec PF-9 or S&W M&P Shield are highly portable and more easily concealed than their higher-capacity, double-stack magazine counterparts.

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 […]

Reverse osmosis filter change after 6 months

Long story short: The water where I live in Minnesota is terrible. I bought and installed a six-stage reverse osmosis filter instead of buying bottled water or having water delivered to the home. The filter had a massive improvement on the taste of our water and pretty much changed my life. Six months later, it […]

10,000 Kettlebell Swing Challenge – Day 1

The 10,000 kettlebell swing challenge is a workout from Dan John, who published it in September of this year. I love working out with kettlebells, and while the swing it the quintessential kettlebell move, I have always done workouts with several other movements. I was curious to try the 10,000 swing challenge. One of the […]

The Adventure Begins

The Adventure Begins

It’s been over six years since my Year of the Zombie (YOTZ) role playing game came to a close. I served as the game master, or emcee, for five other players who attempted to survive the zombie apocalypse — in Disney World. Fast forward in time. I live in Minnesota now, and we have established […]

Omron HBF-306C Fat Loss Monitor Review

Way back when I used to live in Virginia, something magical would happen about once a month. I’d take off almost all of my clothes in front of another guy and he’d pinch me gently all over my body. Meaning, my friend and personal trainer Yoda would use calipers to measure my body fat. I […]
