Past Lives Matter

Ben Franklin once said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” He was right with respect to taxes but was he right about death? Not if you accept reincarnation. Throughout history, people have believed in it, including Mr. Franklin. Today about a quarter of Americans believe in reincarnation. The word reincarnation is derived from Latin and literally means “entering the flesh again”. Believers think that a person’s spirit or soul starts a new life in a different physical body after each biological death. It is thought that previous life experiences can contribute to our personal traits, strengths and...

My Day at the Spa Apr09

My Day at the Spa

Ok, so we all have figured out by now that I am in Hot Springs for a work convention. Well tonight is the last night of seminars and elbow rubbing, so why not try for my first time ever a spa session? Now we all know (most of us) how I like to fight against the unknown and steer clear of it so it took a lot for me to try this out. Like a virgin. I sign in and they lead me to a room filled with lockers. The lady hands me a wrap and tells me to get undressed and put my clothes in the locker. I look at her …like naked undressed? (Just for the record, they didn’t even offer tequila. RUDE!) So, I proceed to undress myself and put on...

I just read that Tom Cruise has acquired a superpower. It’s enhanced smell. I read this in the National Enquirer (September 12, 2016) so it must be true. According to the article, Mr. Cruise acquired the ability to smell and identify odors even if they are miles away. He can now sniff anyone...

WHAT TO PLANT ON NAK...

As God made you, you’re dabbling with your dibblesticks, gardening in the buff on May 7th, Naked Gardening Day, but what do you plant? Yes, we at Silliman on Sports, are often asked “Do I drop a bare root in my bare suit?” We say, of course, if you’re so inclined, plant that honeydew while...

Watching Paint Dry Sep17

Watching Paint Dry

I have no idea why the bank hired me. Apart from a warm body and pulse, I didn’t have a thing to offer Ferneyhough Savings. They didn’t have much to offer me, either. Unless, of course, you count the $9.65 an hour entry level tellers make. To be honest, I didn’t even want the job. I was just...

You can turn on your TV and find Jimmy Stewart once again showing there was a reason for George Bailey living in Frank Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful Life” a movie as traditional and heart warming and heroic as Christmas itself or you can trot yourself down to your local cinema and find the...

All Aboard

Good morning. This is flight 950 bound for Omaha. We will begin boarding in the order of how I am judging you. If you bought your last pantsuit in 1975 you will be among the first 16 passengers to board. I like women who wear whatever’s on top of the heap in their hampers. Your backless Keds...

Why Don’t Indie Writers Just Shoot Themselves? Mar12

Why Don’t Indie Writ...

As difficult and exhausting as writing can be, nothing compares to the challenges and sheer misery of self publishing. Just the huge numbers of electronic avenues makes this experience quite daunting. (I run into that word quite often). And as many of us have come to realize, it’s not...

Yea, Ampersand Feb28

Yea, Ampersand

The ampersand, one of my favorite symbols, I must say, ending in the same word it symbolizes. And it’s exciting, starting off with an amp … plus I know whenever I see it being used there’s going to be more. For instance, Proctor, by itself is just a supervisor and Gamble, by itself, makes you...

Flippy Interviews Santa Dec24

Flippy Interviews Santa

I am proud to present to you the first interview ever with the real Santa Claus. It was an honor meeting such a great person. So, without further ado, here it is, my interview with Santa Claus: Flippy: So, my first question would be, why are you giving this interview? Santa Claus: Well, I’m afraid that I won’t be around for long. I think I might go away soon and I want people to know the truth about me rather than have them make up stories. F: What do you mean you’re not going to be around for long? Aren’t you immortal? SC: Well, yes and no. I am alive thanks to the belief that people have in me. However, more and more children...

The World According to Anime Jul04

The World According to Anime

Some time ago, I wrote an article about how Hollywood thinks the Universe works. However, it seems that the fictional rules of the Universe work differently in the other side of the world. So today, I’m presenting to you, how the Universe works, according to anime. 1. Natural hair comes in every color of the rainbow. 2. Every school has students that have the martial arts prowess of Bruce Lee, and at least half of them are women. 3. The most popular sight in Japan isn’t the cherry trees, but girl’s panties. 4. Every school has an insanely powerful school board. 5. The typical romantic male lead isn’t strong, intelligent, rich, handsome,...

I Am 20% Cooler May31

I Am 20% Cooler

Yes, the rumors are true. I’m a brony. A fan of the My Little Pony TV show. And I’m not alone. Worldwide, there are about 8 billion bronies. I know that number is accurate because I read it somewhere online. But seriously, people are not surprised by the success of the show with its target demographic, but by the success of the show with male adults (for some reason, the show’s success with female adults isn’t as shocking). But why it’s this show, aimed at young girls, so popular? Here are my guesses, based on my own experience and talks with other bronies. 1. It’s a great show. I haven’t seen the...
