Ever heard the phrase, "learn to internet"? Once upon a time, when I worked in a mobile carrier's call center, a curious behavior cropped up more than once. I would tell people the web address for the company, and next thing I know I'm being read ads for multiple carriers at crazy once-in-a-lifetime discounts and… Continue reading Rapid-Fire Rabid Faithfuls
There is a pan-dimensional, incorporeal fish floating approximately half your arm's length behind your head at all times. It is quantum locked to your personal field of view, your brain waves serving as the superconductor. This means that even if you moved your head fast enough to see it, you could not. It is possible… Continue reading Clam Steaks: An Apostrophe
I always hate slippery slope arguments because the simple fact of the matter is you were never, ever at the top of the hill, even in the good old days. The tertiary phase of the government's COVID-19 stimulus package includes a measure to raise the minimum wage to 15 dollars per hour by 2025. As… Continue reading Minimum Change
