The Looking Mirror Avoided

“For example (and thanks to Doug Korty for this point), the total deficits of the federal government from 1950 to 2009 were $6.6 trillion. During those years, three Republican presidents (Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush) accounted for the vast majority of those deficits. All the other presidents (Harry Truman, Dwight […]

That Moment You’re Out Of Battery. Oh. Great! I’ve Got Another One. Battery, That Is.

A pretty gruelling ride yesterday. It started with a train ride that took me and my electrified The Panzer to the badlands at the end of Wuppertal. (Btw, if you’ve never been to Wuppertal, you have to go. It’s worth it to go there and just take a ride on the Schwebebahn.) From there I […]

The Ugly Truth From The Ugly Mouth That’s Never Been Washed #Soap

“…the longer they talk about identity politics, I got ’em. I want them to talk about racism every day. If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.” -Steven Bannon. The thing about hate is how it can go so well so unseen. I experienced […]

Pseudo Review: RasPlex + Hifiberry And Some Serious Audio On The Cheap

  Kinda follow-up, update to this post here. More pseudo-review of audio equipment here. Can a non-audiophile still hear great audio? Can a music-lover of old music still get some jams through his/her head in these digital times without breaking the bank? Do those guys that spend all that money as “audiophiles” give you the […]

Golden Rain Fun In Moscow

As I’ve said here, #americant deserves #Trump. And. From the get-go, nomatter what believers (i.e. the fail upwards middle-classes) claim as they are chocking on that belief, there was no doubt in my mind that president über-stupid likes the peepee. Now. I suppose it’s debatable if he’s one of them perverts that likes to watch […]

Lucky Castle Sunset vs 1979 Solar Eclipse And A Treehouse I Never Built

Disclaimer. This post is somewhat NSFW. Good luck. §On account I’m so jealous that I couldn’t see the solar eclipse yesterday, here’s a pic I took two weeks ago while visiting the Ostsee. Sorry for the over-exposure. (That is over-exposure, right? I really know zilch about picture taking.) §I do recall seeing a solar eclipse […]

New & Improved Ten Commandments

By Christopher Hitchens Do not condemn people on the basis of their ethnicity or their color. Do not ever even think of using people as private property. Despise those who use violence or the threat of it in sexual relations. Hide your face and weep if you dare to harm a child. Do not condemn people […]

Geblitzt Again And Again And Again Again

So what’s my excuse this time? I’m 7 km/h above the 50 km/h speed limit. Go figure. I can’t remember how many times I’ve been caught doing five to ten km/h above a speed limit and then get this stupid letter. Can’t they at least take better care to take my picture? I mean, this […]

Men who were misled into a losing ideology. …  And right now they’re resting in hell.” -Arnold Schwarzenegger My grandfather […]

A Faustian Bargain Is Not A Pact

While listening to the news about my beloved and missed #americant, and, of course, news about #Trump, some talking-head started on about a Faustian Bargain. In the wake of Charlottesville, VA, isn’t it time to have something new to take your minds of the reality you’ve given yourself? Of course, I have to stop in […]
