The great thing about Nespresso coffee pods that are ostensibly good for the environment is that they are recyclable. So you take the used pods and put them into Nespresso's pre-labeled bag, seal it up, and drop it off at any UPS location, no questions asked. That's very convenient as...

So much for Coinbase

Coinbase has decided to employ the ultimate dick move to newly-hired employees by rescinding job offers.

Amazon Shit Reads

It's the beginning of June, and on cue, Amazon notified me that the June First Reads books have arrived. Oh goody. This is one of a host of "benefits" associated with having an Amazon Prime membership. The Amazon First Reads program allows early access to a new Kindle book, free...

Trash night

"Are your trash and recycle nights the same?"

"Yes, Monday night for Tuesday pick-up for both trash and recycle. Although I have a sneaking suspicion that both bins are going to the same trash heap. I don't know how it changes with the holiday, but I saw other people put their...

Afternoon lunch

Never let a holiday go to waste

On May 30, the US celebrates Memorial Day. This day is ostensibly to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for the freedoms we have in our country. In reality, most people just care about the three-day weekend. This year, I've extended mine to a six-day weekend. Also, marketing...

"A friend of mine is going to Hawaii for a six-month contract gig. He's getting a house there and said he might just retire there. Depending on how things work out, I may just decide to move there and do the same."

A Dangerous Trend of DIY Baby Formula Has Gone Viral

I just read the headline. I didn't bother reading the story because I already know the content. Parents are struggling to find baby formula due to the current shortage, and they are looking for recipes to make their own baby formula. This trend will be regarded as "bad" and "dangerous."...

Ping Pong Sex

"I saw you playing last night, but you were caught up in ranked games so I couldn't send you a challenge."

"I was in the zone last night."

"Me too. May I suggest The Killers Essential playlist as a backdrop for playing? I had that going last night."

"I'll have to check it...

You can tell him whatever you want

"Would you be available the Friday before Memorial Day weekend for Jason's birthday dinner?"

"You know, I've been meaning to bring this up. He's the kind of guy whose birthday has to be celebrated. It needs to be a big fanfare, everybody pay attention and show up and kiss the ring....
