Is the Internet Today’s Lynch Mob?

How many people do you know like revenge? Do you? Most people do. More than being able to walk on two legs, I think the act of vengeance and laughing at someone when they fall down and hurt themselves, is what makes us “human”. I don’t think there is any other animal that feels a… Read More »

No One Likes a Loser – Quote of the Day

“No one likes a loser. It’s only fake praise. You’re either a winner, or you’re hated by society!”, I said to my dog this morning, as she missed the ball. She didn’t disagree. She felt bad dropping that ball.

My month long experiment to listen to the new Tech News Today podcast on the TWIT Network has ended. I can’t take it no more! The TNT feed is now deleted, and in hindsight I wish I had done it after 2 episodes as I intended. It’s been rather painful to endure the tedious dialog… Read More »

TWIT Takes a Big Step Backward
