5 Non-Super Powers I Wish I Had

Posted by The Gimcracker in Theory & Philosophy, Top Fivers on 28. Aug, 2008 | 11 Comments

I’m always thinking about the super powers I wish I had. Would it be better to fly or be invisible? Duh, fly. If you said invisible you’re one of three things: a) a thief, b) a cheater, or c) a depressed recluse. Think about it, if you could fly you would never have to pay [...]

Why Do People Hate Titanic?

Posted by The Gimcracker in Movies, Theory & Philosophy on 12. Aug, 2008 | 10 Comments

Pop Aversion Theory™ That’s why. Let me tell you about a new theory that is blowing the minds of scientists and philosophizers ’round the globe. It’s called Pop Aversion Theory™ (PAT™) and it was discovered by the same great mind that brought us Reference Burst Theory™. Mine. I recently took a movie compatibility quiz on [...]

God Hates Fags

Posted by The Gimcracker in Fail, Theory & Philosophy on 10. Jun, 2008 | 7 Comments

At least, that’s what they think. The Westboro Baptist Church is protesting across from the convention center, which is where the Southern Baptist Convention is being held this week. They’re the ones with the God Hates Fags website. I saw them on my way to work this morning. There’s even a little kid out there [...]

Hypermilers = Stupid Drivers

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery, Theory & Philosophy on 19. May, 2008 | 11 Comments

On my daily web surf I came across this disturbing article. It details a guy who lives for hypermiling, which is a method of increasing your car’s gas mileage by making skillful changes in the way you drive, allowing you to save gas and thereby have an easier time withstanding the rising oil and gas [...]

Reclaiming The Gospel

Posted by The Gimcracker in Theory & Philosophy on 29. Jan, 2008 | 16 Comments

I was recently directed to read a brief article about the current state of Orthodoxy in America, written by Bradley Nassif. This article sums up exactly what I’ve been recently discussing with my wife and friends, and I agree whole-heartedly with the author. For anyone who is Orthodox and has not yet read the article [...]

Why Do Bloggers Brag?

Posted by The Gimcracker in Blogging, Theory & Philosophy on 15. Jan, 2008 | 18 Comments

This one’s going to get me into trouble. Maybe that means it’s a good post. Or maybe it means I shouldn’t write it. Too late. I already made that collage of blog logos. I have a question: why do some bloggers feel the need to brag about their lives? OK, now let me backpedal 20 [...]

Big Ol’ Numbers

Posted by The Gimcracker in Science, Theory & Philosophy on 06. Dec, 2007 | 15 Comments

The edge of the universe is 50 billion trillion miles away. While Googling this number to see what it’s technically referred to, and how many light years it equivocates, I stumbled upon the largest diamond in the world galaxy. Space is so cool. I guess a diamond isn’t really “space”. I don’t know what to [...]

Thoughts On The Total Money Makeover

Posted by The Gimcracker in Theory & Philosophy on 30. Nov, 2007 | 11 Comments

Yes, that’s a $5,000 bill, which did actually exist at one time (as did the $10k and $100k bills). But that was before VISA-vis hell, Discovered in debt, Bastard Card, and American Express train to bankruptcy took away our need for large denominations. That didn’t make sense. Vis-a-vis. Ergo. Concurrently. Hitherthenceforththeless. What I’m getting at [...]

Eight Quotes by C.S. Lewis

Posted by The Gimcracker in Theory & Philosophy on 21. Nov, 2007 | 10 Comments

This has to be the most overused image of Lewis. That’s because it’s awesome. Look at the expression on his face as he stokes up the ol’ Longbottom Leaf. It’s like I just told him the punchline of a joke right as he struck his match, and then he looked up at me and began [...]

Why I’m Scared Of Iran

Posted by The Gimcracker in News, Theory & Philosophy on 10. Jul, 2007 | 9 Comments

A man and woman were just stoned to death in Iran, according to this FoxNews.com article, and it wasn’t carried out by a few outraged villagers wielding pitchforks as I had previously envisioned it. Iran’s government confirmed that they were responsible for stoning the man as punishment for adultery. I’m dumbfounded that something like this [...]
