Another bug hunt

Another bug hunt

Yes, I know this is similar to the title I used when I wrote about the hardwood stump borers I find every now and then. But these bugs are just as damn scary, and this time they are inside the house. Tags: home improvement, mutant insects

Whew.

Whew.

Never, in my entire life, has it felt so good to quit a job. I just put in my two week’s notice where I was contracting. I am going to work for a company here in town, but even without a place to jump I probably would have left after today anyway. I had a […]

Bond: Deerslayer

Bond: Deerslayer

When Bond showed me his 2004 MINI Cooper S I liked it so much I bought one for myself. While I’m on car four since then, he’s kept his Coop in great shape. That is, until a deer decided to jump in front of his car on the interstate last weekend. Tags: mutant insects

Cuddly catastrophe? An old article about the “Endor Holocaust”

Cuddly catastrophe? An old article about the “Endor Holocaust”

If you browse long enough on the Internet, you’ll find some crazy ass shit. I was reading a forum on the Star Wars PocketModel game, and someone made a side-comment about Endor being destroyed by fallout from the second Death Star. That lead to another Web page about the different theories about the aftermath of […]

One of our oak trees is drunk.

One of our oak trees is drunk.

Almost a year ago I wrote about giant mutant beetles (okay okay, they’re Hardwood Stump borers) that had surfaced in our yard. I killed another one of them this year already, so I know they’re around. At the time, we figured as long as they stayed outside they were harmless. It turns out that their […]

ArBees

I went out to see my friend Bond, and our mutual friends yesterday evening. We met at Arby’s, a somewhat fast food joint that we all like. The weather was cool and there was a breeze, so we sat outside. I ordered some roast beef sandwiches. I squirted some Arby’s Sauce on the bun — […]

Cylon 1, Squirrel 0

Cylon 1, Squirrel 0

True to his namesake, Cylon is the scourge of lifeforms everywhere. I was halfway through a normal route on my motorcycle — a single-lane, curvy backwoods road. I was cruising at 60MPH. I saw something brown dash out into the road ahead of me. Not wanting to fixate on my target, I immediately stopped looking […]

Another Motorcycle vs. Large Rat

Another Motorcycle vs. Large Rat

Found this on Tuesday on the FZ6 forum, this is by far my worst fear while riding: :edit: For those using IE or other non-XHTML 1.0 compliant browsers, here’s a direct link. Tags: fz6, mutant insects

Is this going to be a standup fight, Sir, or another bug hunt?

Is this going to be a standup fight, Sir, or another bug hunt?

Lady Jaye was out on the back deck today when she noticed the dogs were playing with something. Thinking it was another baby bird that they’d captured, she called them over. Imagine her horror when they dropped this little monstrosity: It was still alive, even though half of its back was torn off by our […]

My worst fear while riding my motorcycle caught on video

My worst fear while riding my motorcycle caught on video

Luckily this isn’t me, but someone recently crashed into a deer on their FZ6. This is the same bike I ride, on the same type of roads I ride on. Hitting a deer, by far, is my greatest fear while riding my bike. Partly because they don’t give you much time to react and approach […]
