Your Great New Business Opportunity

May - 02 2017

Around ten years ago, a friend got involved in multi-level marketing (MLM) — in other words, a pyramid scheme. I could see straight through the hype, but he was a beLIEver. My attempts to open his eyes were futile. In 2013, the FTC kicked the scam off the map — and its founder, a narcissistic […]

Masu Module Drawers

Apr - 25 2017

I love small things. Looking at origami furniture models, I thought how fun it would be to assemble a paper suite for Borrowers.

Origami Lotus Flower with slight modification A bit of background first. Twenty-odd years ago I was heavily into origami. Because my health was poor (as a result of poverty) and my low-paying job was exhausting, I needed something to do while mostly doing nothing. Origami was my key to couch occupation. Since then I’ve forgotten […]

Not getting too much done on this site, but I set up another for a friend last weekend. Used WordPress, with a theme called Universal. It’s a beautifully tweakable theme that is friendly to all devices. I tested it on a phone just to see how it went. He’s pegging away at adding content now. […]

I followed this link from Twitter, enjoyed it immensely, retweeted it, and tried to post it on Facefuck. I was prevented from doing so. FINE! I will share it even more.

Star Dreamer

Jun - 18 2014

A song that I passed some time with ca. 1991 Star dancer, far dreamer, my ship on the sea Nightmist and starwind bring visions to me Flowers are opening under the sky Come with me, dream with me, just you and I Breathe deeply the sweet air of earlier times Rest in the soft darkness […]

A Better Mouse Trap

Apr - 20 2014

How to Build and Use a Mouse Cannon In a moment of desperation, I added what I know to what I have and came up with the simplest — and most effective — mousetrap I’ve ever used. Click the images to view full size. The main tube of mine is about 27 inches long, and […]

Empty Or Not?

Dec - 03 2013

From the Department of Insane Hacks On Halloween, Windows played a dirty Trick on me, so I gave myself a great Treat: I blew Windwoes to hell and installed Debian. Life has been wonderful ever since — but that’s not what this story is about. Because I like playing World of Tanks, I ended up […]
