…….And His Own Sweat Smells The Best

While in the back of a cab on a recent business trip, a co-worker was telling me a rather amusing story about a recent meeting where he had to borrow the suit coat of another co-worker because, well, he had forgotten to pack his deodorant and it was a warm day. I asked him about [...]

A Selfish Reason For Not Minding The High Gas Prices

Originally uploaded by rustedrobot.
It’s time for the quarterly stock update. As you recall, last fall I bought stock through a brokerage for the first time and decided to put the money into renewable energy. At an 88% return-on-investment, it has proven to be quite a good decision. The visibility and stock of [...]

I offer nothing tonight except this slice of near-perfection, in reference to Suri, the freshly minted female offspring of Katie Holmes and Tom [...]

Is There An Award Called “Best Abolition of a Greek System?”

Ugh. I’ve historically sung the praises of Kent State, my alma mater.
