When I was a kid I had a recurring dream that I could travel on my farts. Like, I’d be able to hover in the air and even fly powered entirely by farts. I’d be able to fart my way across oceans and travel the world. I could go anywhere. There was actually a bit […]
I resigned from my idiotic day job on January 2nd of this year. It was part of my “New Year, New You” plan which involved leaving a day job that was trying to force me out anyway, finishing a sci-fi novel, eating more cheese than advisable, and marathoning every episode of Doctor Who from 1963 […]

A few years ago I decided to marathon all of the Star Trek: TNG episodes and share my thoughts. I went crazy a couple seasons in. And you can follow along right here! Thread also features general talk about all things Star Trek and a list of things I would do to Tasha Yar’s sister.
For the first time in 17 years, I’ve put a resume together and started shopping for a new job. But, of course, I’m a 40-something with a BA in history. Not exactly employable. Going on the job circuit has been an odd experience.
More from over 10 years of forum madness! Charting snowfall (and the reaction to it) in the DC area. Check it out right here. Every winter, DC residents lose their minds when there’s even a whisper of possible snowfall. The apocalyptic scene plays out in grocery stores and gas stations in the Metropolitan area, and, […]
