Painting the House


August 13, 2011

I’ve been living in a pink house since 2007. Well no more! I didn’t move - I painted my house the other day. Now I live in a brown house! The awesomest part is I only spent about $40 and it only took us maybe six hours? Just the better part of the afternoon.

First Week of Spring Quarter 2011


March 31, 2011

First Week of Spring Quarter 2011

Yep. Spring Break’s been over for about a week now. Don’t know if I’ll be able to post much. I might be able to post some projects that I’m working on in various classes. So what classes am I taking? Well, my schedule pretty much looks like this:

Start of Spring Break 2011


March 16, 2011

Start of Spring Break 2011

Technically Spring Break actually starts next week, but I’m pretty much done with school. I only had two exams - one was on Monday, the other was a take-home I did over the weekend. All I have left is to finish a paper for my Women’s Studies class. That’s the last gen-ed class I have to take.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time HD


February 14, 2011

I thought this was just awesome. Remember the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 64? Well, it’s just gotten an HD makeover. Sadly, it’s not the folks over at Nintendo that did this, it’s just a hack. Which means if you want to play it in HD, you’ll have to, well, download it…

Hiking


January 18, 2011

At the start of the quarter, I found out that instead of charging by the credit hour, my school charges the same rate for twelve to eighteen credit hours. Since I was only taking fourteen credit hours, I decided to take a hiking class. I know, I know, hiking in winter? Yes, it was cold. But I met a few people, had fun, and got some exercise.

Stargate: SG-1


December 9, 2010

I’ve been pretty bored this month, and have also decided to take a break from some of my gaming. So I’ve been watching the tv series Stargate: SG-1 on Netflix. Pretty good, I think. It’s surprising that it’s over ten years old (from 1997). I keep wondering to myself why the cars are so old… It’s even weirder when I realize a lot of the kids in the show are my age.

November 18, 2010

From Wikionary: discrimination (plural discriminations) 1. a distinction; discernment, the act of discriminating, discerning, distinguishing, noting or perceiving differences between things.

The Hamburger

Ah yes, the humble hamburger, also known as the burger. A special sandwich from the far away land of Hamburg.

DeathSpank

DeathSpank

To my loyal fan, who’s out there… somewhere.. Sorry I haven’t posted in ten days. I’ve been busy with school, plus I’ve been a bit under the weather (that’s sick, for those who don’t know their idioms).

Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook


October 20, 2010

So I’ve been playing this game on Facebook and thought I might post a screenshot of it in action. Then I thought, I could 1-up that and play a video! So here it is:

Robots Are Among Us


October 11, 2010

Robot cars, that is. Google has had its robotic cars travel over 140k miles. For safety, of course, they have an actual driver in the car in case the car doesn’t react correctly.

Praying and Common Sense


October 10, 2010

When I was a kid, my parents would send me to church camp almost every day. At the camp, we did typical campy-type stuff like singing around campfires or listen to stories. Of course, being a church camp, these songs and stories were often biblical and faith-based.

The Problem with the "Evil Rich"


April 22, 2009

In this era of massive government spending, a huge government deficit, untold amounts of consumer debt, and stories of layoffs after layoffs, some have come to wonder how those who have money achieved their wealth. Those some have come to the conclusion that the evil rich through trickery and deceit.

The Importance of Debt


March 7, 2009

If you read my previous blog on the economy, you’ll see how I explain recessions as part of the inherent flaw of capitalism. As a recap, it is essentially because business people need to earn more than their customers, and their customers need to make more than the business people. This concept would make one wonder how capitalism works at all.

Government and Religion


February 27, 2009

It might strike you odd that I’m libertarian - that is, I want government as small and harmless as possible - and that my political view is rooted deeply in my faith. You see, I believe God gave us a gift, a gift so very precious that we have created a government to protect it. The government has often mishandled this gift, and so have we. We don’t really deserve this gift, but we have it.

Why Recessions Happen


February 25, 2009

The sky is falling. Everyone’s losing their job. The dollar isn’t worth what it used to be. Everything’s doom and gloom. Yet economists and politicians seem to insist that this is all part of a cycle, which includes recessions, booms, depressions, bull markets, bear markets, and other mumbo jumbo.

Californian Drug Law


February 25, 2009

We all know that cigarettes and alcohol can be expensive because states will tax the hell out of time. Currently, California has virtually no money, and one politician has come up with a solution: tax recreational marijuana.
