Hermetically sealed

OFF ROAD

OK, I dislike SUVs in general. Well, that's not entirely true. I think they're useful when uses to actually do off-roading. When used by soccer moms to be stylish minivans, no so much. However, they make up over a third of the vehicles on the road, so I… more »

Seatbelts

Many of us are forced by law to wear these things. These laws have been on the books for a long time. You would think that they could make then more comfortable. I was the passenger in a car returning from yet another trip for work and the seatbelt was… more »

I hate being interrupted when I watch TV. No by people, but by commercials. I don't have a TiVO or DVR, but I should get one. Mostly, I flip channels during breaks. Or I watch HBO or something that is commercial free. I'm pretty good at timing my flips… more »

Wait, Wha?

So, it's been a while. But yes, there are still people willing to sue Rock Star because of the GTA: San Andreas mod. In case you've missed it, a hacker released a mod that allowed you to access a simulated sex game that was left in the source code. Of… more »

Annual giving?

Fuck you. You know, I’m not a very good alumnus. I know that. Maybe my high school's attempts to indoctrinate me with school pride during the forced pep rallies failed on me for some reason. Maybe I just never understood why I should feel a fanatical… more »
