What can I say? Everybody loves a trainwreck...
No joke. Whenever I’m in LA (I live in an LA county suburb; not the city) and I see a bunch of the local po po setting up a big operation on the street, I get the hell out of dodge. The LAPD is a hammer that has a reputation for being pretty indiscriminate with its use of force and I have no desire to become… Read more
Popeye’s is good. I’ve recently taken a liking to Church’s bourbon chicken. It’s got a nice tangy taste and their glazed biscuits are exquisite.
When my daughter was doing her undergraduate studies, she went to school a few miles from where I worked. We had a tradition that we’d meet once a week for lunch (usually a Wednesday or Thursday depending on her academic schedule that quarter). She’d choose the place and I’d spring for lunch; it was the highlight of… Read more
Which journal will be publishing your peer-reviewed results? Do be sure to send a link to your TED Talk.
Not this Kang. I was on Rigel VII at the time.
Easy now...let’s not say things we can’t back up...
My family lives in LA County. I was talking to my folks a few months back and they were commenting about the brown-ness (yeah, I know that’s probably not a word, but you get what I mean; it’s perfectly cromulent for our purposes) of the lawn in the backyard.

I honestly thought Disney was worth more than that.
Maybe they should have some qualification where astronaut training comprised of spacecraft operations and safety is standardized, documented, and verified along with a jaunt into space qualifies for astronaut wings. Perhaps some book-learnin’ on flight dynamics along with calculus and physics. At least classical… Read more
It was Taco Bell, wasn’t it?
There are so many people so completely uninvested in the series, yet feel the need to let everyone know how totally detached they were after x number of seasons.
I tend to agree, but people get nasty when you call their baby “ugly”.
Maybe it’s because profitable mining at the more mature stages of a given crypto stage is based heavily on capital investment. Then again, just about any large-scale enterprise is. The system (the entire global financial system) itself is heavily slanted towards those who are the most rapacious and willing to sell out… Read more
In other words, a mythical ouroboros. Crypto is a financial ouroboros...
I’ve been there every season except winter. It gets a bit cold at night for me to do winter in Death Valley, but the same can be said of a lot of places. The reason I like to go during the late spring/Summer is that is Milky Way season. During that time of year, the core of the Milky Way galaxy rises above the horizon… Read more
