The Stupidity of Reporting Comments

This doesn’t happen as often as it used to, but there are still people who will report my own comments on my own blog to IntenseDebate, as if they are totally unaware that the report comes right back to me.  I am the only one who can delete a comment.  IntenseDebate cannot.  So you’re asking […]






Social Media is Strange

I know I recently wrote a post on how much I hate social media, but right after that, someone over on my YouTube channel asked me if I was a member of the “conservative atheist” group on Facebook.  Well, I had no idea such a thing existed.  I was the second member of the “conservative […]






The Young Don’t Understand Rights

You have to remember that Minds prides itself on no censorship, making it the de-facto home of disaffected young people who think the world owes them a living.  There are lots of people who have been banned or censored by Twitter or Facebook who flocked to Minds because they can say anything they want, I […]






Social Media Sucks

I think everyone knows how much I detest social media.  I’ve tried a lot of it and I’ve walked away from all of it.  It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about Twitter or Tumblr or Facebook or Google+, I find all of it to be totally useless for what I actually want social media to […]






You’re Costing Us Money!

Seriously, I get sick and tired of websites complaining about ad blockers.  “We can’t survive if you don’t disable your ad blocker!”  Well then you should probably adopt a better business model, shouldn’t you? That’s the thing.  You adopt a particular business model and consumers decide if they will support you.  Now I don’t care […]






NASA: Dreamers vs. Pragmatics

It’s funny to watch the left scream about Trump, claiming that he will destroy NASA and bring down science to please his religious overlords.  Of course, the fact that Trump has already said that he wants to increase funding to NASA doesn’t seem to make a difference to them, they just know what he’s going […]






YouTube is Still Stupid

A couple of months ago, I wrote how I had received a “community standards strike” on my channel on YouTube, thus causing me not to be able to upload videos longer than 15 minutes.  I appealed the decision, of course, because I was completely in the right, but it took them almost 3 months to […]






YouTube is Stupid

I’ve got a YouTube channel and I usually have no problems there.  Oh sure, I get plenty of fake copyright notices from people who have no clue what fair use is, but that’s just a cost of doing business there.  I dispute everyone and I win every dispute. It’s stupid but it certainly isn’t YouTube’s […]






Apple Sucks

This will probably have been figured out by the time this post ever shows up, but as of this moment, in the middle of February, these are my views.  Recently, there’s been a court order instructing Apple to provide assistance to the FBI in unlocking the cell phone once owned by San Bernardino terrorists Syed […]






Liberals Don’t Understand Space

I can honestly say I cannot understand this at all, but looking at it and understanding liberals and especially progressives, it really doesn’t surprise me at all.  Back in the early 1970s, we sent the Pioneer 10 spacecraft into space.  It had a golden plaque which tried to explain, in simple terms, who had sent […]






YouTube is Pissing Me Off

I recently put up a second YouTube channel specifically for this blog and while I’m enjoying making videos and they’re getting relatively successful, one thing is driving me absolutely crazy.  YouTube seems unable to decide, no matter where I actually put the videos, where they will actually end up.  On more than one occasion, I […]






Shallow Consumers: The Car Edition

A couple of months ago, I agreed to join a year-long study of American consumers on automobiles, answering questions about what is important to me about modern cars and the direction that the automotive industry is going.  It takes me a couple of minutes a week, usually answering one or two short questionnaires about various […]






Are Americans Stupid?

It seems to me that Americans, indeed humans regardless of where they’re from, have gotten stupider as time has gone on.  There was a time when people were at least marginally intelligent, they had the ability to work out simple problems for themselves and didn’t need their hands held to ponder the most infantile dilemmas.  […]






I Threw Away My Cable Bill

Actually, I did this a while back but I was recently contacted by DirecTV who has been desperate to get me back since I dropped their service more than 5 years ago to go with Verizon’s FIOS.  That kind of got me thinking about the whole thing and while I was thinking, I came up […]






Facebook is Bugging Me

I hate Facebook, I have never seen a point to it, I’ve never thought it was at all useful, it doesn’t facilitate intelligent conversations and I fought having an account for a long, long, long time.  In fact, for as long as I’ve had an account, plus a page for all of my various and sundry […]






Dealing With the Real Problem

There’s a lot of talk about raising the minimum wage and giving the lowest-income workers a “living wage”, yet nobody ever  bothers to deal with the actual reality of the situation and that is, these people simply do not deserve to make more because they’re just not worth more to their employers.  With the call […]






Tech Support Follies

Last night sometime, I can’t be sure when exactly since I was off watching TV, my ISP had a problem.  I found this out around 10:30 when I sat down to write my reviews for the TV Thursday post on my other blog and couldn’t reach my site.  Immediately, I contacted tech support for my […]






TV Thursday – 1/31/13

Arrow #1×11 – “Trust But Verify” – After a series of armored car robberies, Oliver realizes that one of the people on his list may very well be part of the heist ring.  Unfortunately, it also happens to be one of Diggle’s ex-military buddies and he refuses to believe that Ted Gaynor could have anything […]






Crazy Enviro-whackos and their Cars

We all know the silly Hollywood liberals who drive around in their special little Prius’ and act superior to everyone else.  However, there’s an even harder-core group that doesn’t want a gasoline engine at all, but still recognizes that they have to have a vehicle for transportation.  There’s a particular subset that I’ve run into […]






Spot the Robot

GE has some new really cool commercials out but this one really caught my eye, it features some of the best known robots in reality, TV and movie history, with a couple of notable exceptions that were likely too expensive to license.  Can you name them all?
