Spring Forward

Daylight Saving Time is upon some of us again. Had to set the clocks ahead one hour since it is time to “spring forward.”

Daylight Saving Time used to begin in April and end in October. Now it begins in March and ends in November. Here in the USA, two states don’t recognize this biannual time change. There are a few countries which don’t participate, either.

John Oliver has a short little piece about Daylight Saving Time which is pretty good.

Competitive Edge

Watching some of the events at the Olympics made me think of competitive edge. Anyone who has competed in a sport, and enjoyed it, knows the feeling.

All of those athletes got there through hard work, dedication, determination, and support from family and friends.

Do you think they would have gotten there if their supporters hindered them? Possibly, but it would have been a longer, harder road.

Stabbing someone in the back, steering someone the wrong way, or throwing someone under the bus isn’t helpful.

Cowards who are afraid of real competition seem to do that the most.

It’s funny that they think they’re better than the ones they sandbagged.

They’ve never been in a real competition with a real person, I’d wager.

Last Week Tonight: Drumpf vs. the World

I’ve missed “Last Week Tonight” and am glad that John Oliver is back with brand-new episodes.

In this first installment since November 2017, John takes a look at how America’s reputation worldwide has taken a major downturn since the orange-haired Commander-In-Cheat took over.

America isn’t perfect, but it is a damned sight better than some other countries: those shitholes of Italy, Australia, and Canuckistan, to name a few.


Movie Time

This movie has been on my must-see list since I first heard about it. It will be in theatres soon. Can’t wait to see it!

I’m sure to get a few new, excellent ideas for cosplay items. Comic-Con 2020 is one goal of many that I’m working on.



People suck. A lot. Being insufferable douchenozzles or annoying asshats are the only things that they are good at, and they go out of their way to be so, constantly and consistently.

On a positive note, there are also people who radiate genuine good-heartedness and true, open spirituality. They are rare and wonderful beings to encounter, and one never forgets the ones whom we are fortunate enough to happen across.

Last Week Tonight: Little Donny’s First Year

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” which will be the last one of 2017, John Oliver looks back at the Drumpf’s first year in office. Has it only been a year since people completely threw intelligence and common sense out of the window? It certainly feels much, much longer!

I’d have to say that I’m a bit disappointed to have lost acquaintances due to politics, but not surprised. The people who claimed to desire open, civil dialogue are the same people who are using and normalizing the Drumpf’s tactics. It is what it is. Fortunately, this, too, shall pass! I remain hopeful, and will keep on keeping on.


Last Week Tonight: Economic Development

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about economic development. Massive financial incentives are offered to multi-billion dollar corporations in order to lure them to communities, with the hope that “trickle-down” economics will miraculously work this time around. With no accountability, however, are those corporations really beneficial? How many jobs have those self-described “job creators” actually created?

Are they jobs which will keep you in servitude for the rest of your life, or are they rewarding careers which will help you live, and enjoy, a happy, healthy life?



Last Week Tonight: Floods

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about flooding, how it will get steadily worse, and how insurance companies have benefited from those natural disasters.

Last Week Tonight: Multilevel Marketing (7 November 2016)

In this 2016 installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about the predatory practices of multilevel marketing companies such as AmWay, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Herbalife, and Youngevity, to name a few. One of my brothers has fallen victim to these pyramid schemes, in spite of the warnings from myself and other siblings. It is sad to see that he lost an excellent job at a very large company to devote his failing energy to these scams. It nauseates me when I see people doing the exact same thing with sites like WordPress or Facebook – which is why I avoid those pages like the plague.


Last Week Tonight: The Equifax Breach

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver talks about the Equifax data breach and actually offers a solution on how to protect yourself. There are some things in life which require self-reliance – you can’t depend on anyone else for some things! That’s just a real fact of life.
