Nine days since my last post. NINE DAYS. "Where the hell are you?" has been the most common question via email.

May 21st was my last certification (Defensive Driving Certification). From the 22nd to 26th I was at a bachelor party, then I used the 27th as a day of recovery, then closed on a new house on the 28th. Follow that on the 29th with a shitload of work emails that accumulated during my absence to respond to, and here I am today.

But damn, it's been one hell of a ride. And, on top of it all, I still managed to rake in 10 different certifications and licenses this month, including reaching the holiest of holies: Becoming a Reverend. Keep in mind, with the exception of the Florida Boating License, all of these certifications ... Continue Reading

Not only is driving the most common form of travel, it's also one of the most popular ways die in the modern world. And despite the fact that manufactures are making cars safer than ever before, they are still driven by humans who, let's be honest, often have trouble executing even the minimal techniques and rules required to operate a motor vehicle.

Most people use their cars to take the kids to school, get to work, go to the mall, pick up hookers and, you know, act like a sane ... Continue Reading

Oh, toddlers. The age between slug-like helplessness and semi-rationality that every child and parent goes through. Most new parents look forward to a time when their baby stops being an immobile carpet speed bump that requires constant attention and evolves into an active person who moves about, plays with toys, and has the ability control his or her own bowels. You're idiots; every last one of you.

You will look back with nostalgia to a simpler time when the all you had to worry ... Continue Reading

CPR: Certified to a Break Your Rib Cage and Watch You Die

DonDoes30.com - CPR Certification

CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) pretty much goes hand-in-hand with the First Aid certification completed earlier this month. CPR works, kind of (but I'll get to that later), by providing much needed oxygen to a failing circulatory system and occasionally knocking the heart back into a steady rhythm.

But actors on TV and in movies make CPR look easy. By straddling the unconscious victim, blowing into their mouth, and pounding on their chest like Donkey Kong, anyone — regardless ... Continue Reading

SCENARIO: Let's say I take you out on a boat after a long day of typing. We're drinking some handpicked beer and wine while I grace your body with a finely chosen tattoo. Then, all of a sudden, a rogue wave capsizing the boat, tossing your body around and injuring you to the point of near death. Do I let you die and just pray for your soul? Or do I repair your torn flesh? Because now I can do BOTH.

Two hours of an online first aid certification from FirstAidforFree.com and I'm ... Continue Reading
