The Martian

   I’m reading Andy Weir’s book, “The Martian.” If you’re a nerd, you should drop whatever you’re doing and read it right now. If you’re the kind of nerd who already read it, read it again. If you’re not so nerdy, you can wait a couple months until the Ridley Scott movie starring Matt Damon […]

Only a second-rate fascist would subject the working world to a week of extra suicidal ideation and road rage for a week a half every spring. Seriously, every morning I woke up considering which bridge would be the best one […]
