Ice Life Hack

Here's a little trick I try to do during the summer, maybe it'll be useful to you: A while ago, I went to the dollar store and bought 4 cheap ice cube trays. I fill them regularly and put them in the freezer. I try to remember every day or so to go get them and then...

VR Photography (Ricoh Theta S)

Earlier this year, I got this VR camera, the Ricoh Theta S (amazon). It lets you take 360° photos or video. This isn't a review but let me start with a few thoughts on the camera itself It's pretty cool for a bunch of reasons: It's quite small, so it's very portable....

Names

You should never make fun of any kid's name you find dumb online, even if you think the name is terrible. Even if that person doesn't see it (maybe they won't), someone else could read what you said, and that person might have a kid with the same name, and it could...

Yell At Brands

I had an idea a while ago for a site called Yell At Brands. The basic idea was that you'd go to it, pick a brand, and write your complaints, and it'd stick them all into categories or sections or whatever. Here's why I think this would be a good site: People love...

Mongers

Almost every monger is bad: Warmonger, Gossipmonger, Hatemonger. But nobody has a problem with the Fishmonger. They're good really. Something to think over.

Jeff’s Maps

I found a very interesting business yesterday, Jeff's Maps. It seems to be a one person business, run by a guy named Jeff of course, that sells really good maps to a few hotspots in Ontario, including two of the big provincial parks (Algonquin and Killarney). He...

Revolving Restaurants

The future is probably going to be very robotic and extremely efficient. It's already sort of like that - every new big business is very professional, and everything is very logical. Apple became incredibly successful by making computers, so they decided to make...

Lights things that are actually heavy

For a long time, I've had a theory that almost everything with light in the name is actually heavy. Here are some examples: Lighthouse - These are extremely heavy. Lightning - This is heavy in the sense of heavy metal. These are the only examples I've thought about...

Ergonomics Hack

I think it'd be cool to start some sort of myth that it's really good for your back to wear a lifejacket while you're working at your desk. If it caught on, it'd be pretty hilarious. There's a thing where sometimes people sit on those big yoga balls at their desk, and...

The Word Geek

I was thinking about how before computers got popular, the word geek usually meant a circus freak who bit the heads off of live chickens. My first thought on this was that maybe anytime anyone calls themselves a geek, it'd be fun to accuse them of appropriating circus...

Smales’s Law

Any Internet message board, given enough time and users, will eventually contain a 5000 post thread about buying small apartment buildings, and renting them out for income.

My Easy Guacamole Recipe

It seems like everybody is into guacamole. It tastes great and is extremely good for you, but there's one problem: It can take a while to make. Also it is messy to make. What I'm saying is that there are two problems, I guess. You also have to own lemon or lime juice...

The “Are We Living In a Simulation” Hypothesis

I forget where I first ran across the whole "We're probably living in a simulation" thing, but I think it may have been in a Youtube video. Later on, I watched another video, which I believe was a TED Talk, by Nick Bostrom. (edit: Here's a video of him discussing it -...

Second Post

I was thinking that a funny thing to do here would be to do my first post by quoting that "First thing first, I'm the realest" line, which is from rap artist Iggy Azalea. But instead I'm going to think pretty hard about what kind of stupid-ass crappy opinion I can...

TIME TO BLOG

Well, it's August of 2016 and I feel like it's time to get blogging. A lot of great things are happening in the world, we're basically living in a golden age and nothing is bad. People are happy, and they are ready for my posts.
