Living without the internet for a week (so far) really brings some things into perspective. This post is part 2 of a 5 post series about Internet Luxuries You're Taking for Granted. Read Part 1

There must be at least one scientific peer reviewed study concluding that women get from point A to point B using only landmarks, a devilishly winning smile and perhaps a little cleavage while men navigate exclusively on compass directions and an unwavering refusal to ask for directions. Tell a woman to turn north, then east and then north again and everyone agrees she would get turned around faster than a cat in a blender.

Weeee! Directions are fun!

But once men have "North 5 miles, west 8 miles, North 3 miles, East 1 mile," seared ... Continue Reading

Living without the internet for a week (so far) really brings some things into perspective. This post is part 1 of a 5 post series about Internet Luxuries You're Taking for Granted.

- Ferris Bueller

Sick days blow Mexican donkey dick on a hot July afternoon in the streets of Tijuana; especially when you can't entertain yourself with TV or the internet. I came home last night from work with a 101.0 degree fever and nausea that would take the crew of "The Deadliest Catch" down to ... Continue Reading
