Adventures in Idiocy

(names have been garbled to protect the names of the innocent and not-so-innocent) A couple of days ago my buddy, Ken Pa... ummm.. Ben Kangpurn, IM'd me and said “You're not going to believe this...” or something similar - you get the...


Veterans Day and what it means to Me.

On this Veteran's Day I'd like to honor all veterans, but especially my family and friends. I come from a long line of men who have served their country honorably and proudly. Me and both my brothers are veterans - 13 years of service between the...

"I want to atrieve my car!"

This version of the story is pretty funny, but the one being shown on the local news is hilarious even though it doesn't cast a very nice light on Miami University (my alma mater BTW). Apparently the guy got drunk, forgot where he put his car,...


Cincinnati gets the Beer Hall of Fame

WooHoo!! Cincinnati beat out 60 other US cities to get the Beer Hall of Fame! Interesting quote from the article: ...when the Germans came to Cincinnati back in the mid to late 1800s they were thirsty. "The per capita beer consumption...
