Fun with Words | Verbally Insane or Creative?

As everyone knows, last night was a blue moon. I stared at the moon for a full five minutes and it wasn’t blue, I promise you, it wasn’t. I started to wonder if I was going crazy until I read on http://abcnews.go.com that a “blue moon” is an expression that simply means it is the second full moon in a month. This occurs about once every 2.7 years. I get it now that the moon wasn’t actually blue, but what’s up with that expression? It […]

How To: Replace your iPod battery!

Everyone that has ever had an iPod knows that looking inside it is quite a feat. It’s glued shut and it’s super hard to get inside. But still the battery will sometime run out of time and the battery needs to be replaced. Sure you can drop by any Apple store to get it replaced but it will put you back by quite a lot just to replace the batter so why not do it yourself. It doesn’t come without a caution though. Make sure […]

Is This How We’ll Order Pizza In The Future?

I order pizza delivery often, at least once a week. I don’t eat pizza, but my son, @toad_mario, loves it. I always order his cheese, black olive and mushroom pizzas online, I don’t call on the phone. However, since the way we do things is constantly changing and evolving, I’m sure that will change in the future too. I remember someone tweeting the link for this video about six months ago. I can’t remember who it was, but it always stuck with me. I ran […]

How To: Avoid Getting Ripped Off By Your Mechanic

I took one of my cars to the mechanic about three weeks ago. He told me it would be $2,000 to have it repaired. Since I am so busy this time of year, I decided to take it back for the repair the first week of January. Guess what? He thought I wasn’t coming back at all and he called me yesterday to say that he made a mistake and it would only cost $1,000. He lost my business with that second phone call because […]

Nut Personalities | Which Nut Are You?

I had a bowl of pistachio nuts tonight for dinner. As I sat there meticulously cracking open each shell, I began to ponder why I was spending so much time opening each one of those little suckers for just that tiny little nut. I know a lot of people that would never bother doing that. But I love pistachios and it’s worth the work to me. I have a friend that eats her peanuts with the shells on them. That’s right; she puts the whole […]

How To: Eat Balut | Duck Eggs

A lot of my foreign friends would always ask me if I had eaten a Balut (Ba-loot) or Duck egg? Of course my answer is yes.   A balut is a fertilized duck egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell.  It is usually eaten with salt or vinegar.  It does look disgusting as you would really see the baby duck inside while you eat it, there are even occasions where its a bit developed and a bit hairy as […]

How To: Illuminate your keyboard! | Hack

There is a lot of keyboards out there that has the back light thing going on. Sometimes these keyboards can be quite expensive if you want the cooler ones.

The keyboard is off the hook but the going price for it is just under $1,600 […]
