Anime - Japanese Animation
Baka - Japanese word for idiot or fool
Loosely put an Anime Baka is someone who's crazy about Anime. However interpretation's may vary. I tend to think of Anime Baka as meaning something like drooling fan boy/girl.
Wrote this a long time ago. Too short for an article:
Perverted - Hentai in Japanese. But the word pervert means deviation from normal or accepted. So, how can all guys be perverts?
Did you ever notice that the sex scene in the movie is generally at about the same realative place as the guitar solo in a song?
2013-03-17 Happy St Patricks Day
I hope everyone has a happy st patty's day. Sometimes I wear black though.
Just learning about this stuff. In short Bacon is good for you, however the Nitrates/nitrites they put in it might not be. I say might because it looks like the information is based on very old studies that are somewhat questionable. Nitrates/nitrites are put in pretty much any preserved meats (bacon, bologna, liverwurst, sausage, hot dogs, etc). They tried to outlaw them but failed when the meat ...more
2011-09-23 Dont get me started on Corn
Everything has corn in it. Your dog food has corn in the top five ingredients if not the #1. Why? Because we have a lot of corn and it's cheap to make. Soy is just as bad. Corn and Soy are bad for you despite what the media says. Their both fine when part of a good diet where you eat corn and soy such as corn on the cob on Tuesday and fried Tofu on Wednesday, but when everything you eat is 90% cor...more

PACIFIC GARBAGE PATCH
I got another letter from Dan Jacobson in my email box. It starts out with what I belive to be blatant lies and gets worse:
"We know plastic bags are terrible for the environment: They pollute our oceans and beaches, harm wildlife, and contribute to the Pacific Garbage Patch — that toxic soup of trash swirling off our coast that's grown to be twice the si...more
2011-07-08 Desk Full of Gum
This is really depressing. I have a ton of Extra gum. It's really good. But....
Someone told me this and I tested it and guess what it's true. Most of the modern sweeteners make you hungry. Also it may not be an immediate reaction. Wednesday I chewed several sticks of gum. I chewed a couple Thursday and was ravenous. The culprit in this case seems to be Aspartame. These are also very popular in d...more
2011-06-09 F&*(*&*(ing Foamy Soap
We have soap that we don't even need to rub our hands together to get it to work? How lazy are we? What does it really mean....the thing gives you less soap every time you push it and the soap it gives you doesn't do nearly as good a job. So I find myself piling it on like shaving cream. Pump, pump, pump, pump, pump. What happened to pump, wash your hands? It's just one more annoying thing. Goes ...more
2011-03-02 DOWN WITH PUBLIC UNIONS!
I'm only starting to understand this while being pummeled with emails crying out to support the protesters in Wisconsin. The problem is that just about nobody in the entire nation has the patience to actually understand what is going on with this complex issue and is instead being befuddled by lose mob logic and media drama.
It boils down to a simple concept of how unions operate. A private u...more
2011-02-08 Granola Nazi
I've recently become aware of Granola Nazis. I don't think I've coined the phrase as a brief look online shows some others using it. I was searching for something I observed in real life and online. To me the essence of the whole Nazi thing is someone who is completely immersed in the concept of getting up into someone else's business. It's also someone who has the fanatical belief they have f...more

2010-12-08 Normalizing MP3s
I do love sourceforge. Recently I decided I needed to rip my CDs to mp3. I almost went for flac but decided on high quality 320vbr instead. I can probably do flac sometime when hard drive space becomes less of burden. So anyway I went through and did them all. I have some stragglers waiting, but I see 513 albums in the folder which is a good start (don't ask about getting copies). Anyway I p...more
