Dear Old Media (CNBC)… Sincerely, The Ron Paul Faithful

Following the Republican debate last week CNBC placed a poll on their website asking visitors to cast their vote on which candidate they thought won the debate.  After a few hours Ron Paul had accumulated 75% of the votes.  CNBC promptly took down the poll and left an “Open Letter to the Ron Paul Faithful”  in its place.
We all […]

If a Woman with No Arms Can Do It…

If she can do it, we can do it.  Let her story be your inspiration the next time you feel overwhelmed.  She has no arms, but she still has a mind filled with passion and purpose.  These qualities have allowed her to overcome her physical limitations.

Google Owns My Identity: 16 Things They Know About Me

I am a huge Google advocate.  I love their products so much that I use almost every one of them on a fairly regular basis.  Much of my computer based productivity is performed online via Google’s offerings.  In fact, based on my excessive use, I think Google may know almost as much about me as […]

6 Digitally Traceable Tracks We Unconsciously Leave Behind

We live in a world of constant connection where the products of our existence interrelate in such a way that we rarely leave a clean slate behind us.  Many people fail to see the correlation between technological convenience and disruption of privacy.  Even when nobody is watching, it is quite plausible that a computer somewhere […]

Popular Infidelity: We Are All To Blame

Sexual infidelity is widely regarded as one of the most dishonorable assaults against the sanctity of an intimate relationship.  Yet, we all seem to be mesmerized by it.  Infidelity makes a love story more intense, a song or poem more passionately tragic, and forms the foundation for which the immensely popular celebrity gossip industry firmly […]

Our Justice System is An Illusion

Without descending into the depths of a lengthy narrative covering the vast insufficiencies of our social and legal justice systems, allow me to vent out some excess bitterness.

Space Shuttle Launch Photographed From Outer Space

An interesting photo sent to me by my buddy Nick who works at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL.  The International Space Station happened to be directly overhead two shuttle launches ago (last September).  One of the astronauts up there snapped this picture of the launch from a window in the space station.  I thought it was […]

Danger Strikes at 2AM

Last night we hit up happy hour in downtown Orlando, a pretty common event within our circle of friends.  Angel and I were totally spent by 12:30AM, but neither one of us were in any position to drive just yet.  So, we went back to my truck, cranked up the A.C., and passed out for a […]

Your PIN Number Has Been Hacked

In an age when almost every single business requires their employees to use at least a 6 character password consisting of both alphabetical and numeric characters, how the hell does the US financial industry get away with requiring only a four digit numeric PIN?  Don’t get me wrong, certainly I understand the concept of two […]
