Greenpoint is a community Brooklyn, NY. They have the best Polish food you are going to find on this side of the Atlantic. You hear Polish when you walk down the street. Also, a large portion is very industrial. They stand in the shadow of NYC's main… more »

Yeah, have you seen the cost of gas? Fucking amazing isn't it? Right before the fucking elections suddenly it's down. Coincidence? Hardly. Betcha it goes right back the hell up, within a week or two after the elections... Not that I'd complain if I turn… more »

I hate my life

You know what I hate? It's people who make my life suck. It happens so many times in so many ways, I'm pretty much inured to the petty shit the ordinary folk dish out. After so many years as a parent, a professional, a purchaser of electronic goods that… more »

Open mouth, insert foot

I work a rotation shift. Days and nights. The guy that works the other half of the shift is a nice guy. But he has a problem. His foot seems to permanently be attached to the back of his throat. For example, yesterday, he missed something. So when I… more »

Define 'critical'

One of the joys of a large corporation is working with others. Especially people you've never met or heard of before. Especially via the wonderful tool called email. You see, when large groups of people spread out across hundreds of buildings interact,… more »

I always find it amusing when people elect leaders based on reasons other than experience and qualifications. No, I'm not talking about the president for a change, this time I'm talking about the Palestinians. Lets say you're the Palestinian Prime… more »

There comes a time, now and again, when everything seems old. I read the news and it's the same news as yesterday, and last week, and last month, last year, the last few years. The Chinese have a phrase "May you live in uneventful times". Well it's less… more »

Terror

Terror is the trademark of a terrorist. On September 11th 2001, I was wakened from my mid-afternoon slumber by a phone call from a friend. He said he was sorry to wake me up so early. Than he told me the news and had me turn on the TV. Of course, I’d… more »

Tech for tech's sake

I understand the desire for the biggest and best new toys. Seriously. I support it in general. But in some instances, I think that tech is pushed out before it’s really ready. For example, when they put inferred sensors on toilets and urinals, it was… more »

Osama Bin Pooh

For anyone not yet fully convinced that our media is in the pocket of our president, consider the new release from Disney of a two part mini-series called “The Path to 9/11”. Our beloved leader must be madly rubbing one out over the idea that historical… more »

Zombie Altars

I've been told I'm cold and heartless. It's not true, but I don't generally argue it. I accept that I have a slightly skewed view of certain things. For example, Zombie altars. My girlfriend dubbed them that, and I think the name is very fitting. You’ve… more »

I'm getting tempted to post a sign saying just this in my back yard. My neighbor in the back (aka, anal retentive weinie) has taken to showing friends the setback of MY shed and the fence. Dad and Mom have seen them do it twice now. I wish they would… more »

I first posted on 5/19/05 about my neighbor and her distain for my shed. I have been very lax in my updates, so here it goes: I applied for a variance, which the zoning board denied. Even when the zoning board attempted to be reasonable, my neighbor… more »

It's time once again to suffer. Yes, with the predictability of the well oiled axe at the end of the pendulum, I await the next 9/11 event from the pit with feeling of disgust mixed with angst. The angst doesn't stem from any innate fear. No indeed, not… more »

R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Respect is a simple thing. Easy to give. Easy to lose. I don’t understand people that refuse to give that respect to people they just met. For a totally random example, hypothetically… just off the top of my head… an attractive young Indian woman, who… more »

Ah, it's the time again. Every year the migration patterns are the same. Hurricanes and tropical storms come north. Sane people batten down the hatches or evacuate dangerous areas. And weather forecasters and their crews stand out in the middle of 60+… more »
