What Is Wrong With Everyone Else? Why Third Is Better Than First

We usually reserve these posts for topics of greater significance.  However, I have spent the last few days moving and the last few hours playing Frisbee golf so I have been a bit strapped for time.  The result is that I took a post that I had originally intended to be what we call a […]

After ‘Curiosity’: 5 People We Need to Send to Mars

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been absolutely fascinated by the SUV-sized rover that recently landed on Mars. As in the planet, Mars.

It’s hard to know how to treat Oppenheimer historically. Is he a monster […]

The TTAF Jurassic Park Roundtable

Favorite Character Drew- Dr. Grant. He’s smart, adventurous, and unwilling to commit to long-term relationships. He also climbs trees well, can perform CPR under pressure, and has jokes when he’s around electric fences.  Curtis- Muldoon.  He is an outdoorsman, a hunter, and generally all around bad dude.  Also he is my profile picture on the […]
