Last week, I wrote a post on how to live amicably with one’s spouse.  It was pretty popular (thank you for reading), so I have been trying to come up with some good follow-ups.  This the first one; hopefully it’s good.  🙂 Are you dating, in a relationship with, or related to a geek?  Do you sometimes have trouble understanding …

Hello there. I’ve created a petition to the US government on their official site that I’d like some support on. The idea behind it (the short version) is to end government corruption stemming from compensation from private entities (like corporations, lobbyists, special interest groups, etc).

I was perusing the Google headlines today when I came across an article on the Edison2 VLC (Very Light Car).  It’s this cool little concept that achieves incredible efficiency by making the car both very very light, and very strong.
