A Seminar About Beef, God-Knows-Where Nebraska, And My Personal Trail Of Tears

As mentioned in a previous worst-post, as a b'day gift I was forced to attend a cooking seminar last weekend. I say 'forced' without the intention of holding a grudge against my better-half's gift choice. It's just that I'm already a damn fine cook so my initial reaction to such a gift must be a bit …

Long Past The Point Of No Return Because The Snow(den)ball Is Long Gone, Melted And Absent of Doctor Strangelove

Finally, dear worst-reader, I've found something out there on the interwebnets that I can relate to--especially regarding the batsh*ttery of the cult of Edward Snowden. As I've worst-written here, I'm not a big fan of Snowden. In short, I question whether or not this so-called whistle blower is all he's cracked up to be. Also, my …

That Thing About Germaphobe Presidents And Denial Press Conferences

Well, dear worst-reader, did you think it couldn't get any worst? Surprise! You thought just because He won your hearts, your TV screens and your presidency that the batsh*t show of electoral politics was (all) over? You thought it was time to sit back, like you always do, visit the mall and consume things you …

Announcement: iPhone 10th Anniversary Not A Celebration But Instead Reason To Admit Defeat. Or. The iPhone Represents How The Old Economy Won.

The thing I remember most from Steve Jobs presentation of the iPhone ten years ago wasn't the device itself. No. The thing I remember most were three words that he said: "Internet Communication Device." Nothing else in that iconic corporate presentation remains with me. I don't care how the thing looks, what colours it comes …

Fake News. Deplorables. Botched Robbery. Rational Thought. A 4:30am Botched Unsolved Murder.

The thing that's been bugging me most since the presidential election goes beyond the commitment of #americant to continue along its path of batshit conservative politics. I've been seriously trying to figure out how the DNC and the Clintons totally underestimated political conservatism. Putting all the republican party trickery aside, i.e. gerrymandering congressional districts, the power of talk …

Backward When Your Forward Is No More Or How Old Might Become New

Like a previous post, the digitalisation of (worst-moi's) life continues. As usual, though, at this time of year, the mystical holiday season threw me for a loop. But what could throw worst-writer for a loop, you ask. How about the physics (the E=MC2 stuff) of Santa being able to actually deliver all those presents to the world …

Why there is no Elon Musk or Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, etc., in #Germany

Link: Could Frankfurt become the new Berlin for startups | The Local The confusion continues. With the insertion of (fill # here) refugees into an already dysfunctional social-market-economy (Germany's newspeak for its politburo, pseudo-communist status) there's little room for anyone in an already bursting-at-seams country (unless, of course, you're a PHD totting white German). But let's …
