Pakistan Fighting

Pakistan recently revised their report concerning a high value target in their hunt for Al-Qaeda. The original report was that, based on the intensity of the fighting in the area, that they had cornered what they believed to be Bin-Laden’s number two man, Al-Zawahiri. This claim was revised this morning as they are now saying […]

Personality Disorder Test

I took this online personality disorder test and I ended up flagged as either high or very high for quite a few personality disorders, to wit: Paranoid: High Schizoid: High Schizotypal: Very High Antisocial: High Borderline: Low Histrionic: Moderate Narcissistic: High Avoidant: High Dependent: Low Obsessive-Compulsive: Moderate One thing that doesn’t seem to make sense […]

The Hand of God

I saw this story about a girl who survived a fall off a highway overpass and I was wondering how a girl managed to make such a plunge. As it turns out, she was in a car that was involved in a two vehicle accident that sent her flying out the window and over the […]

Hearsay and the Mack Rules

The other night I was at the bar hanging out with this girl. We were sitting at the same table so it might have looked like we were together, I don’t know. Later, I noticed that one of my friends seemed to be hitting it off pretty well with her so I wanted to clarify […]

Word Bubbles

People often ask me what I was thinking about when I took a particular shot in pool. This is because either I’m not thinking three shots ahead or I’m actually trying to think that far ahead but I don’t see an out. My standard answer is “I don’t know what I was thinking”, then I […]

Observations

I just figured out how a dude can get free drinks at the bar (NO goddamit, I mean a STRAIGHT bar!) All you have to do is sit there with no drink and when the waitress asks if you want anything, say (within earshot of other people) “NO THANKS, I’M ON A AN EXERCISE REGIMEN!” […]

Dave Marion Cheats and Sabatoges to Take an Unethical Lead in Chicken Wars!

I never thought it would come to this. . . But the Chicken Wars pool tournament to 100 has taken a turn for the unethical. My sworn enemy Dave and I were playing pool at Leroy’s the other day when I took a short bathroom break. When I got back my cue stick looked different. […]

True to Life

I have these three Evanescence videos that I’ve watched three zillion times already. My favorite so far is “My Immortal” where she’s all depressed and singing about a failing relationship. The best part for me is the beginning of the video where they show this dude looking like his world has just ended. He’s at […]

Shaolin Mexi

Thursday I had the day off of work so I buzzed all my hair off. Actually I wasn’t so much bored as I thought that my life needed a major change, and of course all major change begins with a haircut. Anyway after buzzing it all off there was some stubble left so I took […]

Love

A common understanding of love is caring for someone more than you care about yourself. This is not the same as the altruism issue but it’s related. I don’t deny that such a feeling exists. I just think that it’s potentially self-destructive. Of course the phenomenon we call “love” is nothing more than a chemical […]
