After someone tried to “whack” me on the road today, I’m taking some time to spark innovation out of it. Let’s make a dash cam that’s cheap, easy to build, and easy to deter morons from wanting to engage in road rage.
Quick update on my blog’s look, and what I’m busy on.
I just returned from hundreds of miles away from the home base. On Sunday night, my mother was hospitalized with a life-threatening infection. Being the person with the most flexible schedule in the family, I became her caregiver in the hospital. For the past week, I’ve sat in what would qualify as a Level 1 […]
Good news, my contact form is working once again. Sorry for the downtime.
I’m starting to get really sick and tired of the Ad Council. I know for decades they did nothing but good… but they keep spreading misinformation in their modern ads. It’s time to put my foot down. Their latest “credit fairy” ads argue that you can best improve your credit by “only opening new (lines […]

But, I have relapsed. The good news is that it’s a minor case of bronchitis, as confirmed this morning… caused by the […]
As you know, I’ve made posts on healthy fast food in the past. Well, here’s another tip to share. McDonalds got rid of trans fat in their breakfasts. Or, most of it at least (they can still slip in .49 grams per meal item, and call it “zero grams”). Great, but they still have 20+ […]
GM just announced that the first Chevy Volt has been built. Now, you might have seen Volts in the past, but they were actually mules from another pre-production car, the Chevy Cruise. The Cruse will be launching this year, and uses the same platform as the Volt. Some have asked me if you should take […]
Not only is Government Motors making me feel sick… they’re making me feel like the Volt is damaged goods… before it even ships. Not only did GM flatly tell me to drop dead by announcing that they had no plans to resurrect profitable Pontiac cars under another GM brand, but they just made an even […]
