I hate it when that happens

I had an entry almost com­plete­ly writ­ten, and it was good. Then I hit some­thing bad­ly with my numb hand, and my brows­er backed up a page. Now the entry is all gone. Yes, I should have saved some time while writ­ing, but I was on a roll. So you’ll have to set­tle for know­ing that […]

Friday Frippery

This post is almost as ran­dom as my read­ing has been today. I’m spar­ing you excerpts from the fic­tion and school read­ing, at least! After read­ing this arti­cle, Deal­ing With the Jerk at Work, I find myself want­i­ng to read Robert I. Sut­ton’s book The No Ass­hole Rule: Build­ing a Civ­i­lized Work­place and Sur­viv­ing One That […]

Some of Today’s News in Atlanta

I man­aged to avoid the crime news, which is always hor­rif­ic. Okay, I most­ly avoid­ed it. The three boys under 10 who are being charged with kid­nap­ping and rape is get­ting to me. That poor lit­tle girl! Trans­gen­der can­di­date mis­led vot­ers, suit alleges Actu­al­ly, these guys seem to be suing every­body but the dog­catch­er down there […]

Study: ADHD kids’ brain areas develop slower — CNN.com

Expert: Find­ing shows the bio­log­i­cal basis for atten­tion deficit hyper­ac­tiv­i­ty dis­or­der Cru­cial parts of brains of chil­dren with atten­tion deficit dis­or­der devel­op more slow­ly than oth­er young­sters’ brains, a phe­nom­e­non that ear­li­er brain-imag­ing research missed, a new study says. Devel­op­ing more slow­ly in ADHD young­sters — the lag can be as much as three years — […]

What Happens When You Read the News?

I can’t remem­ber the last time I even con­sid­ered seek­ing news any­where but online. Whether it’s what’s going on around Atlanta, the nation, or the world, or just a weath­er update, I look there first if at all pos­si­ble. Since I’m at home and can check in through­out most of the day, it’s easy for […]

TechShop, Photography Advice, Postsingular, NoDryClean, and Verizon FIOS Danger

Dis­parate thoughts from a very low ener­gy day. In fact, it was so low-ener­­gy that I thought I post­ed this entry last night, and nev­er did. I has a fever. Do Not Want. Blah. Can’t brain. Short atten­tion span means you just get links and such. Good links, but links.

Can you make citizens’ arrests for ‘unimaginably stupid’ conduct?

From the Car­roll Coun­ty Times of West­min­ster, Mary­land: Accord­ing to The Sacra­men­to Bee, a fam­i­ly in El Dora­do, Calif., is in trou­ble after spend­ing a fam­i­ly out­ing mak­ing pipe bombs and then test­ing them.… Accord­ing to the Bee, Justin Lee Brown, 29, was arrest­ed on sus­pi­cion of sev­er­al felonies. He, his girl­friend and their two […]

Joe Murphy Has Left the Building, But His Story Lives On

In the Podos­phere 6 degrees of sep­a­ra­tion I’m sure every­one is linked back to Joe Mur­phy of the Kick­Ass Mys­tic Nin­jas, Wingin’ It, Slice Of Sci­Fi, etc, Pod­casts. While today is April Fools Day, no one that was ever touched by Joe will find humor today. This com­ic was writ­ten on the same day of […]
