LARP Yourself, For real-world XP…

So I am sure by now you should all be aware of my proclivities towards ‘geek’ status, and I am not ashamed to admit that even as a child in the 80’s I played some Dungeons and Dragons(with pencils and paper and dice). And despite the title, this post has really very little to do…

What’s Really Going On: Stefan Molyneux

So maybe you are familiar with social-media pop-philosopher Stefan Molyneux, the sheer volume of views of his myriad episodes suggests that at least some of you are. Despite the criticisms I am about to impart, I would still wholly recommend that you do seek out his podcasts; there are a great many worthy topics and…

So You Wanna Drink Whisky…

So maybe you already enjoy a fine dram of the water of life; and it wouldn’t surprise me if you do, but perhaps you are just a little bit confused about the whole thing. Is it spelled ‘whisky’ or ‘whiskey’? Well both actually. What about Bourbon, Scotch or Rye is there a difference? Blended vs….

The Truth About Race, Cave-Sex…

How’s that for a title? click-bait or worthy subject? Hominin interbreeding and the evolution of human variation – the latest scholarly support for the evidence. So it goes like this, if you look to the fossil record you have to recognize that there were many species of Hominin who rose in competition with the out…

Adventures in Illicit Cigars: Cohiba Esplenditos

A few weeks back I attended my best friends wedding, through the fog of the end of the festivities I seem to hazily recall that we had reached a point where cigars were being passed out, though I was hardly in any shape to enjoy a fine cigar. Even besotted so, something had looked to…

Tasting Notes: Holsten Festbock

So summer is finally here, and as the temperature in the north begin to creep up to somewhat near pleasant, for those few brief months of warmth each year, and you’d probably develop quite a thirst as you survey the early summer landscape. So today after a pleasure walk to the local ale vendory I…

I Told You So: Cryptocurrency

So it was almost one year ago that I made my first post about Cryptocurrency. Some of you may have read it, most of you probably didn’t. Now I am not one to toot my own horn, but I thought just for shitz-n-giggles maybe we could see what could have been if you’d only taken…

What’s Really Going On: The N.W.O.

So it’s the twenty-first century, and you probably get at least some of your news from the internet. Since your finger is on the pulse you’ve probably at some point heard some right-wing fanatic droning on about the granddaddy of all conspiracies. The New World Order, The Illuminati, the Freemasons, the Rothschilds…They go by many…

Szechuan-fusion Dragonfire Oil-infusion

Do you like to spice things up? Are you hard-core? Perhaps you’re even a real chili-head; and it actually would surprise me if you were; maybe you even know what a Carolina Reaper is, or maybe you think Jalapeno is a walk on the wild side…If you like to know for 45 mins afterward that…

Her Royal Majesty’s Huevos Rancheros

So you probably have heard of the Queen, heck if you’re Canadian; and I suspect that you may be; you might have even been required by-law to swear an Oath of Allegiance to Elizabeth II and her successors, as I twice have in the course of my attendance to the public governance. Now just because…

So You Wanna Talk Beer…

Ah the ageless classic beverage known the world over; that bubbly, foamy golden gift of the gods that is beer. While it is still a staple of the working man, in recent years we have seen a renaissance of sorts with small-batch craft-brewers and exotic recipes abounding to the point that it is finally becoming…

Reminiscences of 9/11

It is around this time of season, as we approach a most auspicious and dark anniversary, in which I get to thinking of the little details that I remember of that fateful day, a profoundest day in my history wherein I was robbed of no small measure of the innocence of my youth. It is…
