I review the Anti-Mosquito app from Pico Brothers. Although the app claims to repel ticks with high pitched frequencies, it doesn’t work. In fact, my test tick climbed on top of the phone.
My favorite time to ride is early in the morning in the spring or fall, when the sky is lightly cloudy, the sun bright, and the air crisp. My second favorite time to ride is in a heavy torrential downpour that chases cars from the highway like a light does to roaches. Riding in the [...]
With a little bit of planning and foresight you can carry a concealed handgun safely while riding a motorcycle. I explain my personal decisions and carry methods, including on-person and on-bike.
I’ve discovered that some of my readers visit my blog every day, regardless if there’s a new post or not. Some of my readers visit every few weeks, and read a ton of posts in a row. Still others subscribe to my blog’s RSS feed. I created a Facebook page for Gibberish a week and [...]
I’d say my peer group has a 60% overlap in beliefs, education, and upbringing. The fringe topics include gun ownership, equal rights, social outreach, religion, and economics.

I scrunched up my face. “Did we not wash these glasses?” I said to Sedagive? while pouring my water into the sink. “We did. Why do you ask?” “This water tastes like shit.” So naive just six months ago when I moved to Minnesota. The water here tastes terrible, and no amount of filtering with [...]
It has been five months since I started using Charter’s Ultra 60 high speed Internet access service. My overall experience has been unsatisfactory. I had many problems with the Charter-supplied cable modem/router, the connection to Charter dropped more in five months than the three and a half years I was a Verizon FiOS customer. Even [...]
