A Very Late “Best of 2013” List, or, All the Things I was Doing Last Year Instead of Working on that Damn PhD!

Let’s hear it for 2013! The year my PhD thesis officially failed, when I learned there were even lower levels of misery to which one can sink, and discovered that hyperbolic sarcastic exaggeration is so obviously the lamest thing you can EVER do! On the flip side, 2013 was a hell of a year for […]

Just You – Part 1 – Korea

You’re a deteriorating corpse of cake still getting picked at, chopped down, and squished into the prongs of a fork.

4 Quests of a Directionless Loser! – Highest Score Ever on Angry Birds Star Wars

Have you ever done something that was so frustratingly difficult that you couldn’t remember why you’d even tried in the first place?
