Fancy freakin’ razor

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Gadgets

I broke down recently and got one of those fancy Gillete battery-powered, 5-bladed face-scrapers and I am loathe to admit it, but I actually like it. I think it costs a couple dollars more than the non-powered one, but it was worth it. The vibrating head actually feels smoother than the non-vibrating head. I’ve been […]

RIAA receives a public wedgie

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Web

The Record Industry Association of America (RIAA) has been on a tear over the last few years suing people over “illegal downloading” on the internet. They have been attacking folks in an almost silly way, refusing to embrace the downloading culture (as Apple has done with iTunes) that has been growing over the last few […]

Too much poop on Amish farms

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Humor|Pennsylvania

According to a recent story from the Daily Item, Amish farms are not complying with state regulations on soil and erosion. And they use too much manure too. Here’s the link My favorite quote: “Most of the farms around here are in pretty good shape,” Mr. Levan said. But some have too much manure, he […]

Rolling blackouts in Houston

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Texas

It’s hot in Houston. Supposed to reach the upper 90’s today. We’re expected to have rolling blackouts due to massive A/C power consumption in the city. For the love of God, it’s only April. I expected this in July or August, but it’s only April. I need to move. This is crazy. -Dave

You can set up and control several different calendars accessible by your friends and family. Say you have a knitting group that meets weekly and a roller derby […]

attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Humor

Q – How many kids with A.D.D. does it take to screw in a lightbulb? A – HEY, let’s ride bikes!

Comments Off on attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder

I’m a reasonable decent person. I give to charities. I don’t litter. I call my grandparents. I take my vitamins. I slow down so people can merge on the highway (in Houston that qualifies me for sainthood). So, how could I possibly owe Uncle Sam $3,700 this year? I either need to hire an accountant […]

April Fools came and went

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Humor

I’m a little disappointed in myself this year for not pulling any pranks or misdeeds on April Fools Day. I don’t even recall telling a joke on that day. If I were a comedian, I’d be fired for insubordination…or apathy at the very least. Please tell me someone out there pull a good prank? -Dave

  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)
