    Alumni networking breakfasts, industry groups, and the like...

    I'll cut to the chase. I get invited to a number of events for my alumni organization and a few other groups. I get the purpose of these and enjoy meeting people, but I'm fairly skeptical about getting tangible results from these types of events. I mean: new job, new career, new line of...

    The Plain English Movement - will it ever catch on?

    I start a new class this week: Technical Writing. The first reading assignment comes from the SEC: A Plain English Handbook - How to create clear SEC disclosure documents. It's pretty easy reading, sensible in its recommendations, and I started to think...hey, this could seriously catch on...

    Speaking of dead people, how about Paul McCartney?

    So, the Mrs. found a documentary on NetFlix about the death of Paul McCartney in 1966, and his subsequent ersatz replacement. Maybe it was late in the evening, maybe I was worn out after a long day and not ready to doubt, but I thought it presented a strangely compelling case. I mean, we've all...

    **** Official No Post November Log ****

    To all of the gentlemen out there that are serious in participating in "No Post November" I took the liberty of creating a thread so we can document any thoughts of feelings during the coming month. I figure we need some sort of support system for such an undertaking. If you guys...

    No Post November

    Hello, Voluntary task: don't post for one month. I know some communities choose "No Post October", but seasonal poasting/sharing levels are highest during November so this should be more interesting. T levels should peak from Nov 7th - 10th for most individuals, falling back to normal a few...

    Tech question: is there a wireless internet worth having?

    Since there hasn't been a recent thread on this: is there anything out there as far as wireless internet access that's reasonably fast and stable? I've heard about 4G but can't find any solid feedback thus far. Anyone?

    The okra hate thread

    Man, I know I'm in the minority down here, but I have to get this off my chest. I hate okra. I hate okra with a passion I normally reserve for people who beat their pets. I hate okra with the fury of a thousand suns. I would like to make serving okra a felony offense, or a class C misdemeanor...

    Does anyone know of studies relating to distributions of like/dislike?

    Okay, I'm turing up blanks here but perhaps someone knows of what I speak. As individuals and as a culture we have likes, dislikes, and probably a range of indifference between the two. My intial thoughts were that a charted distribution of reactions might fall along a bell curve - which would...

    Chicken and dumplings

    I had some leftover homemade chicken and dumplings for lunch today, and now it feels like I ate a bag of cement. I seem to get this reaction over and over again, which might be why I tend to eat them only under duress, but is there anything I can do to remedy this in the future?

    Garth Brooks: Vegas Act (?)

    I wouldn't have guessed it, but a good friend told me this last night over bourbon. I thought he was kidding me, but I've found a few sites that confirm this. Apparently Garth is coming out of retirement to play a 5-year run in Vegas. Said friend has tried to get tickets but apparently they are...

    What happened to civil disobedience?

    No, seriously, what happened to civil disobedience as a means of protest? I've been living on the straight-and-narrow for a good while now, and it occurs to me that I've not really, you know, done...ummm, anything that would land me in mildly-hot water, just to stick it to The Man. What...
