I wanted to see the solar eclipse last week, and as all hotels under the totality seemed to be sold out when I started looking earlier this year, we decided to to rent an RV and drive up to Wyoming. Here are the lessons I learned.
Driving it isn’t as hard as you think.
But that’s not to say there aren’t differences. There are things you need to keep in mind:
1) Mirror usage – there are blind spots you’re …
From worst to best, here is how I rank the villains from the Marvel Netflix universe.
Note: Lots of spoilers below, so be warned. Also, I’ve just begun watching The Defenders, so I haven’t yet ranked Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra Reid (or any other new villains in that series).
I’m also not including Frank Castle, Joy Meachum, or Davos on the this. The first because he’s not really a villain (although he certainly does bad things), and the latter two …
Shark Week 2017 has come to a close, and my wife and I have almost made it through all the episodes on the DVR. Earlier this evening, she pointed out that every show on Shark Week has the same basic structure:
- Describe horrible tragedy or scientific unknown pertaining to sharks.
- Spend 20 minutes on background information.
- Launch major quest to explain the tragedy or discover the unknown.
- Be unable to find what they’re looking for, but see lots of other
It’s been a few days since Hugh Freeze’s sudden departure from Ole Miss. It’s time to look back at the best memes created around Hugh Freeze. Some of these are in response to his “resignation”, but others are from other parts of his tenure.
Quick disclosure, a few years ago I actually met Coach Freeze briefly, but that will have no impact on my choices here. All that matters is funny.

One of the inevitabilities of having a five year old is that I’ll eventually see every Disney movie, whether I plan to or not. We’re just now starting to take her to movies in the theatre, so we didn’t see Moana when it came out last fall.
But now that it’s on Netflix, we’ve watched it countless times. It’s entertaining, and a definite step up from the inane “based on the movie” shows on Netflix like Home or Angry Birds.…
With continuing stories coming about regarding alleged malfeasance by Donald Trump, the cries for impeachment have begun. While they are currently just coming from the fringes, there’s no question that all of the political Left and some of the political Right would like to see him gone.
I really wish those doing so would think through what would happen if Trump were impeached and removed from office.
Getting rid of Trump doesn’t get rid of the Trumpists. There is a …
I’ve waited about a week to record my thoughts on the firing of Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong. Coach Strong did a lot of things in the right way, and I desperately wanted him to succeed. Both for my beloved Horns and to verify some of my beliefs about football.
But as the season wore on, I began to wonder whether he was going to get things done. And, the loss to the Kansas Jayhawks made it clear to …
If we’re going to elect a president from reality television, he should fill his cabinet with appointees from that same world. Here are my suggestions for how he could do so.
Paris Hilton (The Simple Life)
No one books more worldwide travel than Paris, and from what I learned from Obama’s first Secretary of State, that’s the most important qualification.
Todd Hoffman (Gold Rush)
I’m not sure if he makes more money from gold mining or being on …
I saw Captain America: Civi War on Monday, so I’m now up to date on the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As of this moment, here is how I rank the thirteen movies, from worst to best.
13) The Incredible Hulk
This movie was just bad. Contrived and boring. It’s a good thing Iron Man had come out a month or so before it to show what the MCU potential way.
12) Iron Man 2
I’m a fan of …
Reason #72 to Wall Off Florida
But, I suspect they’d make nice boots……
