Emerald Isle Adventures

The next morning we jump in the car to head to Belfast. The drive to Belfast was eventful as we speed up there to meet Craig who had flown in from Glasgow. We ended up having lunch and dinner at the same restaurant, Made in Belfast. They turn out to have some great food and solid drink menu. After spending several hours eating and drinking we decided to navigate to the hotel...

Zombie Preparation Part II

In wake of the Zombie Preparation Part I, I decided to expand and outline some transportation options and stealthy mean for dealing with those pesky zombies. Everyone knows I am a fan of everything of anything with wheels…one to eighteen…I love them all. I am lucky enough to be the owner of a few cars, trucks and motorcycles and love my mountain bike and beach cruisers. When the zombies attack you will have [...]

Zombie Preparation

John, What would be your weapon of choice, other than your bare hands, if the zombie attack were to begin tomorrow? Chris L. Interesting that you should ask, as Captain Jim and I had a similar discussion over a SoCal Margarita the other night. I think you have to break things down into two categories: Wish vs Practical. The Wish encompasses anything you might have seen on YouTube or heard about on a [...]

Be water, my friend

"Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend." - Bruce Lee [...]

You think you will make the weight?

Hi John, First, thanks for the great programming.  I've been using it for the last six months, and really couldn't be happier. However, I'm training for the Marine Corp's Officer Candidate School.  Part of its requirements is a three-mile run in 18:00 for maximum points.  I recently ran a 5k with less than satisfactory results.  I wonder what you would recommend to improve my endurance for these long runs, besides things like intervals, [...]

Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight? The same thing we do every night, Pinky, try to take over the world!

This is my site to answer all the question that are submitted to me over time.
