This Article Is So Good I'm Willing To Give Up Oreos For Breakfast To Read It Again

Just kidding. I actually got more oreos and made another cup of earl grey to go along with second read of Matt Taibbi's brilliant article. Things in this article that tickled me most: Hunks of recent political history that #americants should know. (But then again, if we knew them we wouldn't be #americant.) Taibbi rips … Continue reading This Article Is So Good I'm Willing To Give Up Oreos For Breakfast To Read It Again

Useless Eater From 30k Feet First Class Adoring The View Of #Trump2016 Rampage On…

As I've worst-said before, #americant doesn't deserve #Trump2016 but it has earned it/him. With that in mind, dear worst-reader, I really enjoyed reading the news this morn about the Bush family dropping out of the 2016 race. For that I'm forever grateful to The Donald. And here's my (ir)rational as to why I'm grateful. As … Continue reading Useless Eater From 30k Feet First Class Adoring The View Of #Trump2016 Rampage On…

This vs That And Something Above The Snowball(den) Effect

https://youtu.be/SGCSy2Ogoa4 As usual, dear worst-reader, worst-writer is shocked. (But I'm not surprised.) I'm shocked that #americants once again just don't get it. I mean, come on. Do you really believe that Blackberry died such a tragic death because the Canadians are so bad at managing a corporation? Or could the whole demise of Blackberry have something … Continue reading This vs That And Something Above The Snowball(den) Effect

What Will Be Missed: Brötchen Not Bureaucracy

Actually I prefer Mehrkornbrötchen but every once-a-once I splurge and have a (regular) Brötchen smeared with a minimal amount of Nutella. Minimal! The splurging on my diet, though, will change soon because in India there is no Brötchen. I'm sure there's plenty of Nutella. (Aghast! Short pause.) Oh. And. No! Bread Rolls are not a substitute for Brötchen. Remember: what … Continue reading What Will Be Missed: Brötchen Not Bureaucracy

Waking up to #thebern

"It is a truism that many who join a rising revolutionary movement are attracted by the prospect of sudden and spectacular change in their conditions of life. A revolutionary movement is a conspicuous instrument of change." -Eric Hoffer, The True Believer

Last Coffee Bean Bag Is A Telescope On Our Passage To India

Saw something strange this morning after what might be the last coffee bean bag I empty in #eurowasteland for the next few years. The count down has begun. 10. 9. 8... We're at around 7 at this point. The moving company is chosen. Vaccinations have been given. Dog paperwork fulfilling bureaucracies almost done. Our passports are at … Continue reading Last Coffee Bean Bag Is A Telescope On Our Passage To India

Not If But When The End Is Nigh Or How I Miss RSS

These images were taken from my iPhone 6s a few nights ago while scanning through Apple's News app. This News app is actually nothing new. I've been using Feedly, Google News, Flipboard, for some time now. Let's just say I'm nuts for information distribution. But the problem is companies like Apple are incapable of understanding information distribution. … Continue reading Not If But When The End Is Nigh Or How I Miss RSS

Arduous Feet Amongst The Intrepid Or Peace Pumpkin Cake While Changing Hosts

Note: an update and follow-up to this post is here. It began on Thursday. It ended the following Monday in the wee hours. What is 'it'? Well, I finally got around to changing my Internet host. Appropriate (or not) since I'll also be changing countries soon. (But that's another post.) It's not that I was, am … Continue reading Arduous Feet Amongst The Intrepid Or Peace Pumpkin Cake While Changing Hosts

A Pattern Of Doom, Learning How-To Video, New Refurbished MacBook Air

https://youtu.be/ZrIFihKKZa8 Reviewing the news this morn. Bored of all the election bullsh*t. When I'm bored of the news I always find myself turning the dial (aka clicking other links). In this case, instead of gawking at pretty cars and pretty sailboats, I clicked through tech news feeds. In it I found something akin to a pattern. … Continue reading A Pattern Of Doom, Learning How-To Video, New Refurbished MacBook Air
