Over the years I've accumulated a things, a few of which I want to
present here. They're either weird, funny, or touched me in some
way. I hope they can baffle, amuse, or touch you too.
Several years ago I came across a poem online that touched me very
deeply. It hit very close to home, capturing a situation many, too
many, people I know have been in. I saved it because it was so
powerful, and I've kept a copy on my wall for years. This page gives
me a chance to share it with more people, so here it is, A Family Portrait.
Every once in a while a story goes by online that leaves me gasping
for breath from laughter. Of course, I have a weird sense of humor,
so more often than not it is something most people don't see as at all
humorous. Oh well. In any case, this story
is, IMHO, hilarious.
Back at Xylogics, we had to deal with some equipment that wasn't
worth the cost of the materials it was made out of, that happens with
technology, it gets to be obsolete. So a few of us created a list of useful applications for a
particularly annoying piece of equipment.
Most people know about Murphy's Law, but not many have seen Murphy's Laws Of Combat. For anyone with an
interest in things military, it is an amusing read.
The Book of (fnord) is a strange set of
'cards' created by a couple of my friends back in college. I felt it
was weird enough to include here. As the great philosopher Joel
Hodgson once said, "We don't ask 'Who will get this?', we say 'The
right people will'."
