Isn't it interesting how comedians such as George Carlin or Jon Stewart are more likely to speak the truth on what's really going on rather than journalists? I believe we are all very aware that the mainstream media is a joke. Instead of the journalists being vigilant in pursuing the truth and passing their comprehensive findings over to us openly, we have the comedians doing a much better job.

This here is a coat hanger. Look at it. How much do you think this super fancy thing costs? Just a few bucks, right? Right! What does it take to attach it to a door? Look at it. Three screws. Pretty simple. Now I just want to know one thing... Why don't all bathrooms have this? Where am I supposed to put my coat (or purse)? On the floor? No thank you. I'm appalled that most bathroom stalls don't have a simple hook on their doors. It's just a hook for christ sakes! When they were … [Read more...] about No Coat Hanger In The Bathroom Stall?
I love keyboard shortcuts and I didn't know a couple of the things here until today... so here goes... While a video is playing, pressing keys 1 through 9 skips to the 10% through 90% time points, respectively. For example, if you press 3, you will jump to the 30% mark. Pressing the number 0 will go to the start of the video. It's best to try this with a hilarious video where no matter what frame you're at something awesome is being said: Charlie Sheen Says He's 'Not Bipolar but … [Read more...] about Keyboard Shortcut Lovers: YouTube Edition

These were the words told to me by my friend Danny Terceman. I wonder if he realizes that the simplest of phrases he tells me, opens up a new world of possibilities for me. He was teaching me the basics of Parkour at a park every week or two and giving me a lot of tips. At the end of one session, we walked to his apartment building and before we went up the flight of stairs he asked me, "How many steps can you skip when going upstairs?" And I answered, "Like 2 or 3 at a time, I used to live … [Read more...] about No Wasted Opportunities (Make FULL use of your time)
Yosemite Falls is the tallest waterfall in North America with a drop of 2,425 feet (739 m). As water flows in the winter time, small crystals of frozen mist form during the drop and this ice mixes with supercooled water. This forms a very unique (and dangerous) slushy river that behaves like lava or fresh cement! :o The following footage is filmed in Yosemite National Park and only gets more incredible as it progresses. Enjoy! … [Read more...] about Unique Phenomena: Frazil Ice

Ever since early 2011, Facebook photos now pop up in what they call a theater-light-box. I'm glad to see Facebook is trying improve constantly but unfortunately this is one step backwards in convenience and design. The most annoying problem with the new photo system is that I can't right-click and get the image source like before. Also, I just don't like the way it looks because it doesn't flow that well with the rest of the web site! The easiest solution: Click on the photo you want to … [Read more...] about Switch to the Classic Photo Viewer in Facebook
Over the weekend my laptop of 6+ years went kaput. I knew the time was coming. The 14" screen had busted hinges; An old copy of the Baghavad Vita and some other thick book were semi-secretly holding my screen up from behind. Intermittently loud clicks from the 60GB hard drive were cluing me in of its upcoming death. Performance was slowing dramatically over the past couple months even though I kept my system well maintained in every way possible. I've only had to reformat it once in those 6 … [Read more...] about Laptop Died… Shopping for a computer!
Mont Blanc, located near Chamonix, France is the tallest mountain in the European Union with an elevation of 15,700feet. It is located on the western part of the Alps. In comparison, Mt. Whitney is the tallest mountain in the contiguous US and is only 14,505 feet tall. Mont Blanc translated directly to English would be... Mountain White. Which of course means, White Mountain. This gives us a clue about how French is slightly different than English; The adjectives go after the noun. … [Read more...] about Mont Blanc
