I have opinions. I have oh so many opinions. And I’m going to share them with you in this section.

Want to know what I think on politics, technology, or just about any other topic under the sun? You’ll probably find something about it in this section.


Money In The Bank 2014 Thoughts

WWE's annual Money In The Bank pay per view (appar­ently we're still calling them that even though you know… you can just watch them on the WWE Network) is an oppor­tu­nity for some of their most popular wrestlers to hurl them­selves off of ladders. This year there were actu­ally two ladder matches on the card, … Read More… Share on Tumblrvar dd_offset_from_content = 40;var dd_top_offset_from_content = 20;var dd_override_start_anchor_id = "";var dd_override_top_offset = ""; jQuery(document).ready(function($) { window.setTimeout('loadPinterest_119685()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadTwitter_119685()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadReddit_119685()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadGoogle1_119685()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadTumblr_119685()',1000); }); func­tion loadPinterest_119685(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $.getScript(''); }); } func­tion loadTwitter_119685(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-twitter-119685').remove();$.getScript(''); }); } func­tion loadReddit_119685(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-reddit-119685').remove();$('.DD_REDDIT_AJAX_119685').attr('width','51');$('.DD_REDDIT_AJAX_119685').attr('height','69');$('.DD_REDDIT_AJAX_119685').attr('src',''); }); } func­tion loadGoogle1_119685(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-google1-119685').remove();$.getScript(''); }); } func­tion loadTumblr_119685(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-pocket-119685').remove();$.getScript(''); }); }
Body Measurements Over time

Diet Progress

I hit a mile­stone today. It's an arbi­trary one in many ways but satis­fying never­the­less. When I weighed myself this morning I clocked in at 174lbs. That puts me at the absolute upper end of normal weight and takes me out of the over­weight cate­gory (BMI just below 25). I say it's an arbi­trary mile­stone because I know I'm still … Read More…
The Source Of All Evil?

The Growing Luddite Cacophany

The Luddite move­ment in the 19th century was targeted specif­i­cally against creeping indus­tri­al­iza­tion and the effect it was seen to be having on society. The concern was legit­i­mate because the Indus­trial Revo­lu­tion did massively change things  and partic­u­larly in the short term there were nega­tive conse­quences. But the Luddite response was narrow minded, short sighted … Read More…
Wizarding World Of Harry Potter – New Interactive Window Effects In Action At Hogsmeade

Wizarding World Of Harry Potter — New Interactive Window Effects In Action At Hogsmeade

So I previ­ously wrote about the fact they seem to be prep­ping the new inter­ac­tive magic wands and have set up plaques in various loca­tions around the Wizarding World ready for the wands. But since Diagon Alley In Universal Studios remains closed despite the construc­tion walls coming down, no one had seen anything in action. But … Read More…

Signs That Interactive Wands May Be Happening at Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade In Universal Studios

There have been rumors about inter­ac­tive wands for months now, but nothing has been offi­cially announced. The idea is simple enough and a vari­a­tion on what Disney have done in Epcot with Phineas & Ferb in the World Show­case area and in the Magic Kingdom with the Pirates Adven­tures. Basi­cally it would be an RFID token … Read More…
I Walked 500 Miles

I Walked 500 Miles

It took me 86 days (since I got my FitBit and was tracking my steps) but as of yesteday I've walked 500 miles (over 1,000,000 steps). Which means I'm aver­aging 5.81 miles per day (12,647 steps) and I'm going up 33.38 floors per day. And it's also an excel­lent excuse to play this video. Because… dancing Ood… and it makes … Read More…
