    I’ve done lots of normal nerdy things: been obsessed with video games, cried at the end of a good fantasy novel, cosplayed at nerd conventions – the list goes on. But these are the dirty secrets of the nerd, the things that some nerds might even say is nerdy. Let’s get down and nerdy. 1. Dressed up as Moaning Myrtle to go to the book release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Nerds everywhere can relate to a love of dressing up. Cosplaying at conventions or even on Halloween (I guess maybe that’s just called “wearing a costume”). I took it a step…

  • I have seen the Supergirl pilot, and it’s terrible.

    RebelScum
    25 May 2015 | 8:46 pm
    The Supergirl pilot found its way to the internet last week nearly a full 6 months before its intended air date. I’ll admit, I had high hopes. In an age of shaming, sexism, and the very loud complaints of a very vocal minority as pertains to male-driven hero movies, a show about a strong female hero is a logical, important, and maybe even necessary thing to do. Plus, Supergirl is a pretty great character, and other than 1984’s oddly entertaining but still terrible big screen release, she’s never been given the spotlight she deserves. But in spite of the odds being stacked…

  • Who is “Big Vaping”: a small slice of the e-cigarette misinformation war

    Doug Groves
    28 Mar 2015 | 9:11 am
    Earlier today, Vox put out an article titled “How Big Vaping is misinforming the public about e-cigarettes“. In it, the author attempts to paint the growing grassroots vaping movement with the same brush as Big Tobacco. Unlike most online news sources, Vox doesn’t have a comment section directly below their articles, so I’m posting this here. The quotes are from the original article. It’s also Saturday morning, and I haven’t had my coffee yet… While the state campaign reminds its citizens that all the Big Tobacco companies also own e-cigarette…
  • Replacing a rusty Nautilus Mini pin

    Doug Groves
    30 Oct 2014 | 6:05 pm
    I was originally going to write about this later, but after seeing a thread about rusted Aspire Nautilus Mini springs on Reddit, I thought I’d take a few minutes and finish the photos now. If you’ve washed your Nautilus Mini, you may have come across the problem of a rusted pin, which isn’t a good thing. While the Nautilus Mini is an amazing tank for vaping, the spring itself has a couple of problems that can become an issue for just about any user, if they’re not aware of it. The pin that contacts the battery is fine in its own right. The spring that provides the…

    When Mark and I visited his parents last week, and they kindly tried to send us home with all of his childhood toys, how could I resist! Mark has a large collection of 80’s memorabilia… Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, Beetlejuice, Pokemon, Power Rangers, and so much more nostalgic goodness. My challenge was to incorporate them into the design of our home, using the walls, and so it wouldn’t look too cluttered. In a 600 square foot apartment, using wall space in the design is key. I had Mark install a long shelf along the ceiling so I could display all the toys. It’s hard…

If you don’t want to go to the salon, wash your own hair. Really massage your scalp and hair folicles. Massage therapy, especially on our head, has a great affect on our mood. It gets the blood flowing to our head, relieves pain, and helps us feel relaxed. So treat your head to 15 minutes in the steam, and give it a good rub! 2.

Together with her squirrel sidekick, Tippy Toe, she fights crime as Squirrel Girl. Very well. At risk of sounding like a hipster, I liked Squirrel Girl before Squirrel Girl was cool.

    The plot moved a lot further in this week’s manga issue of Naruto Gaiden – The Seventh Hokage: The World to Come. The antagonist directly attacked our heroes and even if I don’t have any idea who he is at the moment, I have to admit that he must have a very dangerous card to play if he’s confident enough to attack powerful beings like Naruto and Sasuke. One of the surprising things I saw in this week’s manga was how the villain had a whole bunch of little kids with Sharingan’s. There’s a possibility that each kid has a different kind of Sharingan and hence, a unique ability.
