Random Thought for Friday, May 22, 2015: Geek Gone Wrong

Dr. LoganWelcome to Friday’s Random Thought.

Yeah, I will admit.  I am a Geek and I am proud of it.  Computer techie, amateur photographer, cheif, writer, master of Full Contact Basket Weaving.  I revel in my Geek status as does my Wife.  We collect Geek related items as all Geeks do.

As with all things, there are people who take it way too far.  No, I am not talking about Cosplayers, that is a much respected art and has led to many people finding their way into employment as actors/actresses and/or fashion related jobs.

I am talking about the BTCRing (http://thebtcring.com).  Want to propose to that significant other?  Buy them a ring that is an offline wallet for the digital currency known as Bitcoin.

This thing is in simplest terms, this is a QR code that you wear as a ring.  Really?  It’s not enough that QR codes are placed on stickers that litter street signs, walls and gas pumps but now you want to ask that person you love to wear a QR code?

I think you could come up with something more classy than this.  Don’t want to go the diamond route, get something like a Doctor Who themed ring.  Some good ones are:

Seriously.  If you want to show your the SOG, Significant Other Geek, in your life that you want to spend the rest of your life with them, get something more meaningful than a QR code.  Get something special and then, send her the Bitcoin on top of that.

That’s a better plan!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Random Thought for Friday, May 15, 2015: Pornstars and Finding God

IMG_20140505_085058Welcome to Friday’s Random Thought.

Yeah…the title of today’s post is an a bit different.  I had to write something about this one as what I observed today just provided some inspiration.

Today, while gassing up my car, I was privy to a heated debate between two younger gentlemen.  They were arguing about whether or not a certain adult performer was still making films.

Their conversation ended up making me chuckle.

  • Man 1: I tell ya, she’s not making films anymore.
  • Man 2: That can’t be true man, I swear she’s still making movies.
  • Man 1: Nah, she retired, said she found God and all.
  • Man 2: I don’t know.  Could be true, she was calling his name all the time.
  • Man 1: Yeah but don’t you think she would go to Hell for all that lying?  I mean there is no way she wasn’t faking it.
  • Man 2: So, she found God only to go to Hell for fornication and lying.  See, she should have stayed in porn!
  • Man 1: Do you think there is porn in Heaven?
  • Man 2: She probably thought so, getting in good with the boss and all.

Yeah, the things you overhear these days.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Random Thought for Friday, May 8, 2015: Happy Mother’s Day

20141231_101204Welcome to Friday’s Random Thought.

This Sunday it is Mother’s Day.  Do take the time to treat your mom nicely.  Perhaps hug her and thank her for her patience, especially during that time when you and your brother decided to ‘clean’ the bathroom with Comet Cleaner.  You know, that wallpaper, mirror and the cabinet doors never looked the same after that.

Happy Friday Everyone!
