OCD Multitasking

It’s rant time and I just realized something: for a guy with a beefy PC and multiple displays, I spend a lot of time with just one window open.  Billions of CPU cycles and memory cells are sitting idle.  Only one of my LCDs is even powered on right now.  Am I being wasteful, or […]

Love thy neighbor, but only if they swallow!

WARNING: If you consider yourself a serious, devout catholic, you should probably stop reading. You won’t like what I have to say, not one bit. I bring your attention to article A: ‘Body Of Christ’ Snatched From Church, Held Hostage By UCF Student Now consider article B: ‘Body Of Christ” Returned To Church […]
