We should NOT celebrate Columbus Day

Reference: Columbus Day

Jill: “TIL Columbus didn’t discover America nor did he or anyone else at the time think the world was flat. He was an awful awful man. He tortured people, raped and sold little girls, and directed the killing of thousands of people.”

John: “So?”

Jill: “So we should probably stop celebrating Columbus …

Season 5 of Breaking Bad Sucks

I wasn’t the huge fan of Breaking Bad. I watched but had issues with it. Jessie’s repeated bad luck rubbed me as unbelievable for example. The airplane accident had no point. Tons of things happened because people didn’t talk which is a huge cliché

But, overall, it was fun to watch and seemed to make …

The Slow Death of non-English Languages by Navigation Software

Ok, that title is a little off. What I really want to do with this post is help to make it a priority for companies that make navigation and or text to speech software a little less English specific (or whatever language it’s built for). What am I talking about?

Lots of people use GPS …

Match.com Needs to Update!!!

I know no one will read this, especially from Match.com but… Match.com is probably the oldest and claim to be the biggest internet dating service. Whether or not that’s true I don’t know. I’ve been on it since they started. So long I have a free account from when they first offered accounts. (*)

A World with very little Privacy

There’s a lot of interest in the surveillance society. People don’t like it. Or I should probably say some vocal people don’t like it. There might be plenty of people on the “I’ve got nothing to hide so I think it’s good” side of the aisle though I’m not sure I know many. This usually …

emoji (絵文字) Picture Characters

Emoji (pronounced eh-moh-jee) are iconic characters first introduced in Japanese cell phones in the early 2000s. At first different carriers each made up their own set of icons. NTT started off with a few. Then if I remember correctly J-Phone added many more than NTT to try to entice users to their system. Japanese, especially …

A World With No Privacy

It annoys the crap out of me when someone tells me I can’t take a picture. Examples: I go into a department store. I want to take a picture of some cool merchandise that I want to show some friends. The clerk comes up and says “no pictures”. I’m at a festival. Someone is selling …

Being Inconsiderate

Excuse the swearing. I thought about editing this but decided this is how I wanted it. Raw.

Just in case you haven’t actually thought about what being “inconsiderate” means it means “to not consider”. I’m going to assume you believe that being inconsiderate is bad, dickish, not cool, something your parents tried to raise you …

Orange County is not White

Anytime you hear someone say Orange County is White bread or some other thing claiming it’s scared of non-whites know that you are listening to a LIAR

O.C. is less white than San Francisco. O.C. is only 27% white. Even Irvine which gets dissed all the time as being white only is 41% white.

So …

How much longer will most unskilled jobs exist?

This is totally off the wall but a link on Hacker News about leaving at 5pm and a response to that link got me wondering, just how much longer will most unskilled jobs continue to exist.

For example, how much longer is the job of convenience store clerk even going to exist? Already most major …
