Post-Woke Perspective on StarCraft

I recently found my old StarCraft: Battle Chest and replayed it on one of my old PCs. I loved playing StarCraft as a kid. For me, it was a gateway to other real-time strategy (RTS) games like Star Trek: Armada and the Command & Conquer franchise. However, the game may be cringeworthy to some modern…

Overlooked Survival Items

This is the 4th and final part of a miniseries regarding odd or often overlooked items that could be useful during a survival situation. Here’s a summary of what’s been covered so far: I’m taking a different approach this time and won’t describe the many ways a single item can be useful. Instead, this article…

Survivalists can use Rubber Bands

This is the 3rd installment of a 4-part series, regarding odd or often overlooked items that may be useful during a survival situation. So far, I’ve described how a wise survivalist can use a towel and wire hangers to make survival easier. This time we’ll explore how rubber bands can be useful after the SHTF.…

Meme on Chinese Balloon 🎈

I was inspired by the Chinese “NOT SPY” balloon to make a multi-pic meme or comic. The story is mine, but the original comic art is from American Born Chinese (graphic novel), by Gene Luen Yang.

Yes, Wire HANGERS!!!

Disaster struck, the apocalypse happened, or the SHTF… You’re safe (for now) and are taking stock of what’s in your home. It looks like you’ve got a good supply of the essentials, but notice there are several closets full of unused wire hangers. They’re leftovers from all the dry cleaning you’ve been using over the…

Survival Tool… A Towel?

In The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams, the most valuable piece of survival gear is a towel. The novel’s entry for towels can be found in the footnotes of this article[1]. In summary, the guide states that a towel can be used for: warmth, shade, defense, cushioning, as a sail, chemical warfare…

Songs with Misheard Lyrics 🎵

We often mishear the lyrics to music. We’ll sing and hum along to the songs we like, and would be embarrassed to learn we’ve been singing the song wrong. There are several ways the musical experience can be diminished and cause us to mishear lyrics. I grew up before music was available instantly on a…

An Argument for Tea

Do you remember learning about the transcontinental railroad in school? I learned about it a little more than 2 decades ago and don’t recall much about the railroad part. However, I retained a greater life lesson from that chapter in history class. This article describes the most important part of the school lecture, and how…

Cooking after the SHTF

Depending on the world-ending scenario you subscribe to, the method of cooking everyday meals will change. I guess it’s possible our cooking habits won’t change if we’re lucky enough to “suffer” a candy-ass sort of disaster. A disaster that merely knocks out most government services, but somehow keeps the power running and leaves our food…

Our War with Russia & Risk of World War III

We are at war and we’ve been at war for several months now. It may not be a declared war, but it’s a war nonetheless. There’s the physical war fought by Ukrainians, who are defending their right to exist as a sovereign nation. Their success on the battlefield would not be possible without our continued…
