This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

So, Matty Boy! How's your crusade against creepy ass Blue Tooth phones going?
Remarkably well, hypothetical question asker, thanks for asking. Everyday, more and more right thinking, common sense Americans are standing up and being counted, saying in a strong unifed voice that wearing a creepy ass blue tooth phone in public is just...
Ah, hell. I'm not running for anything, so I might as well tell the truth. The crusade against creepy ass blue tooth phones is not going well. If it was an epidemic when I first brought it up about a year and a half ago, it's a pandemic now. These mutants are everywhere now. In California, if you want to talk on a cell phone while driving, it has to be a hands free set or you can be fined, so there is a use of creepy ass blue tooth I am not completely against, but really, do you people have to wear these things every waking minute?
While I admit that I'm fighting a losing battle currently, I have dug in at a new line I believe we can defend.
No cyborgs at the dinner table. When you sit down to eat, the damn things come off. No exceptions.
My fondest wish is that it's a fad that will fade, but I don't hold out that much hope.
