Cartnoon

When I think about Bushcrafting I’ve devised a pyramid of need. The first two steps are mostly preliminary to the third, which is vital. You need a knife. Endlessly useful in breaking down material they’re very difficult to construct in a primitive environment (not impossible). Your best bet is to have one, doesn’t have to …

Unreliable Narrators

Unless exposed like an English Major (Historians write too) it might not occur to you that most of what you read is not at all true, demonstrably false by easy experiments in fact (Harris? Really? There are plenty of reasons to hate her, and I do, but she is more a “Natural Born” Citizen of …

I’ll have a shot of that.

Mmm. Baker’s 105. It’s “Sippin’” Whiskey, so a side of Soda or Branch only please. At it’s peak the Bourbon Empire ranged about as far as the Hapsburgs but it was always centered around France and Spain (as opposed to Germany and Central Europe).

Go State

So on Friday I’m going to miss the Memorial Service for my Aunt. It’s too bad really. I liked her a lot, thought she was cool because she drove a Corvette and wore Designer Ripped Blue Jeans. She did other things but was a Professor at Michigan State University and many of her friends and …

Did I Miss Anything Interesting?

Wow. Wow. Hot Dogs. Apple Pie. Chevrolet. I hope you’re using this instruction time on Republican attack messaging. They’re really, really good at it.

Rock, Rock, Rock And Roll High School

Well, first of all, Public Education is a system of conditioning an Army of obedient Meat Puppets as Labor Slaves for Corporatists. Now don’t mistake my cynicism. I had a wonderful Education I greatly enjoyed, mostly because my Teachers were scared of me in that Anthony Fremont kind of way. I admit I am somewhat …
