Humor and Life

My satire is bad; my life details are worse. Still, people laugh at both, so join in the party. Everyone's invited.

Science and Philosophy

Thinking about thinking is important. How do our minds interface with the world? What can we do to avoid making errors? Does morality exist?   


Without spirit, nothing matters. But if you have free will, it makes all the difference in the world.


  • Green: Day hikes, but can be done overnight.
  • Yellow: Typically 2-3 night hikes.
  • Red Longer hikes, typically 4+ nights.
  • Purple: Camping spots, hotels, villas, and excursions.
  • Blue: Camping combined with something else, typically kayaking.


  • I’m transcribing my reviews in my own order, but if you’d like any moved to the top of the list, just shoot me a message.

Reading Time: 4 minutes Stewardship is huge these days.

Companies accept diktats under the acronym “ESG,” standing for “environmental, social, and corporate governance.” You’ve got to keep that ESG score up, so accept the messaging you’re given and promulgate it. Yet often what we

OnlyScams: Accretion of Knowledge

Reading Time: 2 minutes An old coworker once told me that he was spending a good deal of money on a website where he could subscribe to a certain girl and watch her perform sexual acts and apparently also work on cars while naked. It was easy for me to list off the reasons I didn’t think this was healthy, moral, or financially prudent (and sure enough, his marriage fell apart). I think that

Roller Coasters and Life

Reading Time: < 1 minute I love roller coasters and have a particular fondness for ones made by the Swiss company Bolliger & Mabillard.

Biden: People Will Regret Abortion Ban When Their Babies Starve to Death

Reading Time: < 1 minute “Look here, I don’t work for you. My family doesn’t work for you. When I swept into office, I came in to sell your children’s organs to zoos for meat, and now I’m go into people’s 401Ks at night and wrecking up the place, and there won’t be baby formula for years—arrroooo,” Biden howled. “I’d abort that baby while it still has some meat on its bones if I were you.
