The original 9/11 plan

In between studying I’ve been reading through the 9/11 Commission report. My personal opinion is that the investigation done by the 9/11 Commission was very thorough, and they have done a good job trying to turn over every rock relating to the events leading to 9/11. Not all of the 9/11 report has been declassified ...

We remember 1

Every year on this day we pay tribute and remember those who have sacrificed their lives for us. It is the time of the year where we should think about avoiding future wars, because that’s what the ghosts of the World Wars would have wanted. Greed and hatred is the root cause of wars; greed ...

This high tech fence includes “concertina wire obstacles, ultraviolet sensors and night vision cameras with facial recognition technologies, and buried motion detectors.

Welcome to the Jungle 3

We took my sister out to her favourite club last night. It might just be the last club in the world that plays Motley Crew, Bon Jovi, Guns & Roses, AC/DC and Deep Purple. I’m not denying that other clubs play this music, but who’s really going to show up to head bang to 80′s ...

Naked man arrested for concealed weapon

I bet you had the same confused look on your face as I did when I saw this headline. My conclusion was that it could only mean one thing. But my curiousity still forced me to click the link to see it for myself. A man was arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon ...

2 days later, The $252.92 Idiot 2

I’m probably the biggest idiot I’ve ever met. On Sunday evening I came back from watching a movie with my little brother. I parked my car out front of my building on the street because I was supposed to meet up with a buddy shortly after and I wanted to avoid the parking garage to ...

Why QWERTY?

Have you ever wondered about the origins of the keyboard layout? Ever wondered who the hell QWERTY is? Well unfortunately I don’t have all the answers to your questions, but I did read up about the origins of the keyboard layout simply because I was curious. First of all, the QWERTY layout was patented in ...

Organized religion 8

I always seem to have something on my mind; thankfully this website is a place for me to let it out instead of bottling it all up. Before I delve into a long diatribe about my resentment toward organized religion, I will make my disclaimer: I feel that a lot of good has come out ...

Spare some change? 4

Today I spent the better part of my day sorting and rolling years of coins I’ve been saving in a “piggy bank”. My plan was always to use this change to pay for a flight to Europe or a flight to Asia. Well I figured that money is probably better off in a real bank ...

Simple luck 3

One thing I can’t understand is why people are so patriotic and see themselves as superior to everyone else just because of the country they live in. I consider myself lucky because I beat the god damn odds and I happen to be born in a wealthy country. I don’t think I’m better than anyone ...
