I just wanted to make a quick post about the new dinosaur scientists have discovered in Utah. It is thought to look something like this… wrong overweight dinosaur, sorry… there it is. Scientists believe that the Brontomerus “Thunder-Thighs” mcintoshi used its thighs of thunder to kick the living crap out of predators. If I had the chance to name a dinosaur I...
Greed is a bottomless pit.– Conor Oberst
For some time I’ve been wanting to do blogs on the weekends about science stuff. So, my first blog has to be about monkeys, obviously. Good news everybody, monkeys also have self-doubt and self-awareness just like you or I. This news was discovered when a couple of scientists sat some monkeys down and had them play a “video game.” The monkeys were trained to judge the density...
Thoughts while in the bathroom
Today I was contemplating those big questions, probably in the same place that everyone else contemplates them, in the bathroom. I had an epiphany about myself. I have tons of potential along with some talent but I lack follow-through which I think is the most important thing to have. I have countless unfinished art projects and creations. How does one acquire that oh so essential...
I'M AN ALIEN!!!
Well, kinda. Have you ever felt alienated and disowned? That’s what I’ve had goin for me for the past month or so. I’ll roll with the punches. Anyway, have you ever done something that you’ve been ashamed of and then all you wanted to do was apologize to all the right people? Sure, but what about when those people don’t let you apologize? What happens when you...
Where we're going, we don't need roads!
Man, the future is approaching and it’s going at least 88 mph. If you keep up with any of the scientific news you know what I’m talking about. (spoiler alert)(but if you haven’t seen this movie by now you probably don’t care enough to watch it) Do you remember that scene in the Will Smith movie “I, Robot” where some of his skin has been scraped off revealing...
A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.– Albert Einstein
Ok, my significant other and I watched Top Gun yesterday. Nothing crazy there, other than the constant homoerotic behavior… not the point. I was curious as to where or how they got their call signs. Tom Cruise’s character had the call sign of “Maverick,” <(pretty badass) his partner was “Goose,” <(not as badass) and Val Kilmer was “Iceman,”...
I’m a huge fan of comics like Watchmen and V for Vendetta where most of the characters don’t really have any discernible superpowers but are still ultimately badass. I’m also a big fan of the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman where the main character, or in this case entity, has amazing powers but struggles when in the real world. Of course I’m a big Marvel fan, Spiderman,...
