Episode #2 has me laughing so hard I almost suffocate. As a result, I’m temporarily insane and I just can’t help it. With my new-found skills, taught to me by Donnie Hoyle, I thought I’d get a jump on the iPad. Here are some wallpapers with a realistic ad campaign for the device. 1280×800

Quite a few months ago, I started a thread over on the Mythbusters forum at the Discovery Channel site. I quit checking on it a while ago, but tonight, I flipped over to Discovery, and there they were, testing it! The basic question posed, whether or not a diver in an old fashioned rig could [...]

I didn’t hit the snooze button this morning, I was up. We got somewhere between 6-10 inches of snow last night. I actually was looking forward to shoveling the walk and digging the car out. A pot of coffee, Bugs Bunny on Netflix, the only thing missing to completely turn me into a twelve year [...]

Just when you think it’s safe to go back in the water, three people have died on the Arkansas River in the last week. All were rafters, two at The Numbers and one at the rather innocuous Pinball rapid. It was joining the swim team at Rigor Mortis on Clear Creek that ended my run [...]

Went to the Cherry Creek Arts Fest and beat the meat of the storm back to the house by about a minute and a half. I did get a bit soaked, but it’s a duck-drowner out there right now. My favorite at the festival?  Not sure, one thing is for sure, a lot of the [...]

Bike season is well underway here in the Front Range. My headaches are back with a vengeance. I’ve been back to the doctor and had some tests scheduled. I wanted symptoms to be present for the tests, so I went and did everything I know will kick them off. Wheelie drops, bunny hopping, taking air [...]

The Excedrin isn’t cutting it anymore. The Excedrin + Stranahan’s isn’t cutting it anymore. Even the Excedrin + Stranahan’s + Vicodin isn’t cutting it anymore. If you’ve read here for any length of time, you’re probably annoyed with the ride induced headache references I’ve made over the years. I assure you, you’re not nearly as [...]
