Explain This

Any NFL player gets busted for smoking weed. 4 game suspension. An NFL player (Ray Rice) is arrested for beating the crap out of his wife. There is VIDEO EVIDENCE of him knocking her unconscious, evidence which the league has apparently viewed. Boy, I bet they’ll throw the book at him, right? 2 game suspension.

So, Should I Be Concerned…

…that we have an explosives containment unit waiting to be put in place at work? As in, something designed to contain the explosion of a bomb? This seems at least mildly disconcerting. There are other aspects which tend towards troubling, but it occurs to me that going into great detail on a personal blog would

Delusional pale dude for sale in aisle three!

Who in their right mind goes walking into a Safeway without a shirt on? Some local rube dipshit, apparently. The last thing I expect to be confronted with whilst picking up a slice of cheesecake and a steak for dinner tomorrow is a bulbous, blindingly white glob of middle aged humanity. This guy looked like

I live!

I haven’t said anything for a little while, so I figured that perhaps I should offer up some sort of confirmation that I do continue to exist on this mortal coil. So, um, hi…? And since I’ve got you here, I may as well ramble on a bit as I’m wont to do. And since

Hilarious game glitch blooper video

Every single game ever released gets these videos, and they’re normally lame. Some ubernerd trying to make jokes about horrendous clipping or graphic pop-in or something else that the average person doesn’t give two shits about. But every now and then, a gem emerges. EA recently released a new UFC game for the latest generation

Dude, About Your Graphic Design…

So, there have been interesting little happenings at work as of late. Last week, our area of the ramp was partly taken over by a private aircraft company called Morningstar (they also service the FedEx jets while they’re here), who parked their planes all over the place for an open house. This led to instructions

Enough boardgamery…for now. -Work continues to go well. I’m finally forklift certified at work, so I can play on those again. And as of today, I am now Load Captain trained. Basically, that means that you’re in charge of the on-load of one of the decks on the plane when you’re given that role. You

Final GameDay : Fun at Clearance Prices! Bonus Thoughts!

Once more into the breach went Kelly and I last Saturday for more board gamestry and incorporated frivolity…and candy. Nothing says gaming like cheap candy and quality beer mixing together. Actually, that combination might say ‘bad taste’ more than ‘gaming’, but whatever. Relic Yep, that’s quite the looker. If you’ve ever played Talisman, you have

Gamery Abounds!

Since I neglected to make a post about the board gaming that went down on May 24th, this shall cover both that and the 31st. So…yeah. Enjoy and stuff! The 24th featured Liz, Kelly, Chad, Vlad, James and myself. More people arrived as time went by, so more became involved in chicanery and hijinks and

Death of a Legend

Knowlton Nash died today. He was something of a legendary Canadian newsman, long the anchor of nightly news broadcasts on the CBC. But he was something else, too. He hosted a bunch of those typically horrible ‘Teach the Kids Stuff!’ videos about current events that you got stuck watching in junior high. At least, I
