The eight people you meet in Facebook Hell

You know these people. You may be one or several of these people. The saying goes that, “Hell is other people.” Well, nowhere has more people than Facebook. The Baby Shamers These people love to post pictures of their children with food smeared all over their faces. These people find this “cute.” These people are wrong. The inability to feed ...

Duck Dynasty Tales

If you’ve been on Facebook in the past 24 hours, it’s likely you’ve been inundated with statuses either in support or against Phil Robertson of the TV show Duck Dynasty. Likely too, you’ve already formed an opinion in the us-against-them war of words. Maybe you’ve liked a new page asking for Robertson to be reinstated, or you’ve commented furiously on ...

Dear Asshole on the Internet

The following is in response to the viral article “Dear Mom On The iPhone”. You have probably seen it pop up in your Facebook news feed–perhaps while browsing on your iPhone or, gasp, Android (don’t even get me started about those Windows Phone 8 jerks). Anyway, it’s one of those uniquely asinine posts that deserve a response. Yes, the heart ... Read More »

An athlete’s guide to poetry and William Blake

So, your silly English teacher wants you to learn poetry, huh? Let’s be honest, you might be more interested in sonnets and sestinas if these poets were more liberal with their Xs and Os. Considering they’re not, and many of the ones you’re assigned are long dead and unable to adapt their work for you, perhaps there is another way ... Read More »

Professor or hobo?

Over the last few days we’ve been getting a ton of hits through Google and other search engines from people searching “professor or hobo.” Now, normally we get all kinds of weird searches that lead people to us, but these have been concentrated and at times outnumbering our regular content for bringing hits. So, what’s going on? Apparently there’s an ... Read More »

Disney thinks your children are stupid

After a work-related meeting yesterday my wife and I drove to a neighboring town for dinner. The town itself is heavily Amish and the restaurant features home-style food. These details are not unrelated, but not related in the way you might assume. You might assume that a home-style restaurant in an Amish town would be run by the Amish, but ... Read More »

Unholy website of CNN

While piddling about online looking for something interesting to read, I made the mistake of visiting CNN’s website. What’s so bad about CNN’s site, you ask? First, why does CNN act confused about where I am? Just about every other website in the world can recognize and greet me knowing I’m from the United States. For some reason, CNN always ...

Believe you me or cry trying

Belief is a powerful thing, though slightly less powerful than a mid-ocean oil pipe, apparently. Belief has driven humans out of the cave, across the sea, and into theaters showing Nicholas Cage films. But while you may be powerfully motivated by your own beliefs, you also happen to be powerfully motivated against those of others. Why? Here’s a little thought ... Read More »

Humor: A Christmas Tale

In the next few days I will (hopefully) be posting the presentation I did over humor in Professor Hobo. Once posted you can see how much you disagree with my own flimsy analysis. However, having given the presentation twice, it has had me thinking about the subject of humor. What makes something funny? One technique in humor is to take ... Read More »
