An idea to save us from ourselves...

My proposal is this:
Door Locks controlled by mirrors. If the mirror didn't like what it saw, you wouldn't be allowed out of your house. Please understand, I fully acknowledge none of us are perfect, myself included (I know that comes as a shock.). I think it's obvious we can all make better choices before venturing out amongst civilized folks. My idea would protect us from ourselves. I'm no rocket surgeon, smarter people than me would have to hunker down hard to come up with the technology that would make this pie in the sky dream a reality. Make no mistake though...it would be a culture changing event on par with all that important shit you learned about in Junior High and forgot.

It would certainly prevent tragedies like this:

You may say I'm a dreamer...but I'm not the only one...

Happy Birthday to me...

Well, not really...not yet anyway.

I scored a new pair of Five.Ten mountain bike shoes from the Mrs. early. Took a road ride in em the other day, comfy and efficient...but road rides aren't any fun (better than no rides, but just barely). So this morning I had time to head to the trail...I'm a happy camper. You can read all the marketing crap on their site, and other bike related sites...but dang, they work! They stick to my platform pedals as good as a clipless pedal set up, you're really locked in, but with the peace of mind you can take your foot off easily for a dab or two. The sole is stiffer too, closer to a traditional cycling shoe, so power transfer is optimal. If you're into this sort of thing...go getcha some. They work as promised.

Fun was had...

How to be hated with little to no effort...

Become a telephone solicitor. No one likes you. It's not even your fault for the most part, I'm sure you just needed a job. The problem is your job is intrusive, invasive, and annoying as f*ck. I've called you some of the most creatively vile things I've ever called anyone...and I don't even know you.

There's still time. You can stop. Walk away. Learn the phrase "Would you like that Super Sized?", anything but what you're currently doing. Come back to the land of the loved.

Have Fun!

Dammit!!!

So, I was looking through some old comics and thought it would be fun to do a little re-write. I think I'm gonna keep this blackboard piece as a blank slate for future rewrites too.

Oh yeah...my internet/Yosemite issues seemed to have magically resolved themselves, probably heard the threats.

Have Fun!

Why Apple, why?

I'm an admitted Apple fan boy. I've been with them since the early 90s. I've staunchly defended them over the years, the lean through the fat.

Now I'm a bit bent.

I recently downloaded and installed Apple's newest OS, Yosemite, on my 21.5" 2011 iMac. All was peachy at first, not a big fan of the "look" but I was getting used to it. Friday night this began to change. I started having problems connecting to the internet, either wouldn't connect, or was molasses slow. At first I thought it was the AT&T Uverse router...haven't had the best luck with that...but every other device (4 iPhones, 2 iPads, and older Mac Pro desktop, Xbox One, Dish Network boxes etc.) was working fine. I got onto the Apple Community Support forums, started finding lots of folks having WiFi issues once installing Yosemite. But here's the rub...my iMac connects to the router via ethernet. Didn't find any other issues online about it, submitted a help question to the community...now I wait.

If there's no fix, I will attempt to reinstall the previous OS, Mavericks, via a boot disk thumbdrive and restore from a Time Machine backup. Hopefully this will be easy enough...but it never is.

Why Apple, why? Why release a product before all the wrinkles are ironed out? You're giving Yosemite away, you wouldn't have lost money from sitting on it a little longer would you? Reading through the support forums, there's plenty of disgruntled folks out there.

Please, don't become so fat you can't see the foundation on which you stand.

Have Fun!

A recent photo...

Mrs. MMS and myself recently took a quick trip to South Padre Island, Texas to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. We spent a lot of time at Sand Castle Days, the annual Sand Castle festival. This was our 3rd or 4th time to attend, usually always a good time. I enjoy taking pix at the event, people are usually pretty relaxed and enjoying the event...no one pays attention to the dork with the camera.

Here's one of the shots.

Let's see what happens...

I've decided that I'm going to attempt to make at least a post a day. For lack of any better reason, it's an attempt to force myself to be creative and to do something. Let's see what happens...

Have Fun!

An exercise in self flagellation...

Should you be so inclined as to wish to rip the flesh from your own body, and you fancy yourself as some sort of witty writer...just go back and re-read everything you've written. That'll pretty much take care of it for you.

Have Fun!

Happiness comes on 2 wheels...

© 2014 Mike Moore Studios
Oh, I fully acknowledge happiness comes in a myriad of other ways as well, but for me one of the fastest ways there is on 2 wheels. This is especially true if the 2 wheels are rolling off road, through some dirt, over rocks and roots. There's something about mating one of man's simpler machines to mother nature's curves that sends me to a state of nirvana. The dirt and debris of daily life gets left behind on the trail. Every brushing slap of a tree, or drop off a ledge knocks away more. Maybe I just get an endorphin high, I'm good with that...but there's more to it as well. If you know, you know...if you don't, I'm not sure I have the linguistic skills to put it convincingly into words...you'll just have to trust my goofy grin.

Some of the dirt sticks to the bike too. That's ok...the bike doesn't mind having a hose taken to it, whereas it would probably just piss me off...then I'd need to go ride again.

Not that that's a bad thing.

Have Fun!

Alrighty then...

The new site is up. Pretty much the same as the old site, and the site before that. I'm back on Blogger, off the WordPress. WordPress just wasn't intuitive to me, Blogger makes it easy for us weak minded types. So, maybe that means I'll be putting more stuff out here on the interwebs...for the 2 or 3 of you that looks at it.

Have Fun!
