Mishaps are like knives

I worked late Thursday night because I’ve been having trouble getting there on time. Typically I leave at around 8, and it’s a 45 minute drive home. I’ve been in that place where… well, it’s as if I need to stop and let my mind catch its breath, if that makes sense. Instead, I just […]

Russian Recipe: Dreaded Haggis

Хаггис (dreaded haggis) / Gotovim.RU2 For some reason I was looking up “dreaded haggis” on Google the other day. Oh, right, to scare the Russians.

Sometimes you only get a glimpse of it, but it’s enough to change your opinions completely. Uh, epiphany, that’s what it’s called. Epiphanies […]

Funerary Customs

I decided it was time to drag the intellectual level of my blog up, kicking and screaming if need be, with an anthropology piece about understanding other cultures’ customs. I may have lent that book out. I always feel like I’m blowing smoke if I don’t have quotes to back up my bizarre ideas. But […]

ECT, etc.

"A functioning police state needs no police." — William S. Burroughs "Shock Therapy" is that ugly dog collar and backpack combination that they use in some detention centers to control kids with behavior problems.
