We all have moments in life we regret and wish to change; be it having never worked up the courage to ask that girl to the prom back in high school or not picking 42, 15, 72, 17, 28 and 6 for our Powerball numbers last week, if only we could somehow alter events in the past. Or perhaps we would like to skip ahead into the distant future where we can fight space aliens using our Lightsabre app on our smartphones (hopefully the battery life is better by then). These possibilities all boil down to the following questions: Is time travel possible? And if so, would there be any point to the limited availability of the McRib?
Now obviously I don't mean in the trivial sense - I very much realize we're all technically slogging along through time at 1x speed with no choice in the matter. But is there a way to hit the fast forward button through all the boring parts in life like in that Adam Sandler film Click,
The Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo is taking place this weekend. I will be one of the over 75,000 people attending.
The Con Chicago needs. The Con you deserve!
Why did Chicago need and deserve a new convention if we already had a giant Comic Con?
Like all good geeks, I started attending Chicago Comic Con as soon as the first member of my gaggle of dorks got his license and could drive our pimply faces and empty wallets to Rosemont Illinois. From 1987 until 2010 it was the one weekend that I always marked on my imaginary calendar (I would just lose real ones).
Unfortunately, in around 2008, Comic Con began to become so expensive and crowded, that it was becoming less and less fun. In addition, several of the big name vendors stopped attending the event. After that, the only reason I continued to attend was my son. He really enjoyed dressing in Star Wars costu
Wouldn't it be cool if a kid with Autism Spectrum Disorder had a superhero to look up to?
I think they already do... and I don't mean Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory (although I'm pretty sure it's safe to say he is also on the spectrum).
No. I mean something more like this...
Although the movie version of Drax the Destroyer is a bit different from the one in the comic books, he is still a force to be reckoned with. This superhero (or
anti-hero depending on the story line) is the galaxy's fiercest warrior. He possesses super human strength and durability. His body is also nearly invincible. Although his only purpose in life is to destroy the cosmic super villain Thanos (who is ultimately resp
I have been meaning to get to this place for awhile. The place was clean, the decor was solid and they had GHOST PEPPER SAUCE!
I have discussed on here my love of the spice, so let us get to the pictures and review.
Well, they have a pretty complete menu with lots of tasty options. Today, in my expert culinary consultancy opinion, I decided to go with
I took the plunge a month ago into the murky waters of crypto investment. Some of you have been surfing these waves for years but to the rest of us muggles, cryptocurrency is so new it even has a squiggly red line running underneath it telling me I spelled the word concurrency wrong. I wish to share this disorienting yet exciting experience so far in my usual 'snarky at the expense of insight' sort of way.
As my new 53 year old foster child would attest, I've never been an early adopter of anything. Up until last year I was still using a dumb phone, and as a result, have developed a bad habit of actually watching where I'm going when walking down the street. Because of this I saw a sign at a local coffee shop reading 'Bitcoins accepted here'. Admittedly I had heard of Bitcoins before, but dismissed it as something akin to a Nigeri
When I do that I feel it is only fitting that I also "look the part", which is why you will notice in my picture above that I am sporting my exclusive Professor @jrcornel Mustache. My IQ tends to bump up a few points any time it comes on.
Keep in mind that when I say "intellectual" in my comment above, most likely what I really mean is "ironical".
Good, lets begin.
The first tidbit that really scintillates my cranium is this wonderful little nugget:
You probably already know what that number represents and if you do not, that's what I am here for. That number represents th
If you ever had a btc wallet, you know that usually they come with a SEED phrase to recover the wallet on different devices. If you didn't, you know now.
This usually not a phrase, more like a series of words, 12 to be exact. It's recommended to write it down, as anyone who has the phrase can recover the wallet on their device and like..spend your money, man!
Here are a few ways to store it safely:
Tattoo it all over the body
1a. tattoo the first 11 words and remember the last one
1b. tattoo the words as emojis
1c. tattoo the phrase mirrored, DaVinci style
Write it down, put it in a box, lock the box, bury the box and the key in different locations. Write down the locations in a new box, lock it down, bury it different locations then repeat until you feel safe
Send a word to a different friend. Be careful to have a way to remember the order. Here's my suggestion:
3a. *Alphabetically, Aaron, B
Obviously we can't all just travel the world and hang out with other steemians whenever we want to, but what if we pretended... What if we could have a virtual hangout, where any steemian who desired to could have the opportunity to hang out with @papa-pepper, one on one, for a bit?
Honestly, I'd rather enjoy hanging out with just about any of you. I think that it would be interesting and that just hanging out would be a lot of fun. When I got the chance to hang out with @giftedgaia, @winstonwolfe, and @stellabelle for the Steemit Talk Podcast it was a very interesting and entertaining time.
I came across this video tonight. Thought it was entertaining! Sums up everything you need to know about life ;)
Monday to Friday, and sometimes Saturday, This Man would leave the comforts of home behind and step out into the chaos that is The Big City.
This Man had his very own chauffeur service that ran on a strict schedule of being late only half of the time. That meant This Man would sometimes spend many hours standing near a pole with a tiny picture of a bus on top.
Many people would come and go. Some would stay.
Not just a regular Man in a Blue Jacket, no. That Man in the Blue Jacket was slightly irregular. He would talk to himself, had a strange walk, oddly shaped head and a weird mustache. He was there wa
Today I will give you step by step instructions how to make your own ice cubes. Follow this guide, and you will soon have your own ice cubes, easy and cheap.
First, to make ice cubes, you need to have an ice tray. If you don't own an ice tray, you need to buy one. If you can't afford an ice tray, you need reevaluate your goals in life and get a job.
Next, you will the ice tray with water. Make sure you fill every slot, this is very important. In order to maximize the amount of ice cubes, you need to fill every slot! Don't be discouraged if you fail at first. Just keep doing it until you get it right. And once again, if you don't have housing, you need to do other things
The result [of a Muslim ban] could be an estimated 4.3 million fewer people coming to the United States this year, resulting in $7.4 billion in lost revenue, according to Tourism Economics, a Philadelphia-based analytics firm. Next year, the fallout is expected to be even larger, with 6.3 million fewer tourists and $10.8 billion in losses. Miami is expected to be hit hardest, followed by San Francisco and New York, the firm said.
I understand the need (in certain situations) for programs designed to confirm our physical presence in this matrix-dream called life.
reCAPTCHA seem to be leading the way in this area and as a user of multiple faucets and other such sites which require proof of my existence in this physical realm, I am very familiar with the drill.
But to put it frankly, the process of selecting images of vehicles, gas stations, street signs, apartment buildings, store fronts and mountains is starting to drive me a little nuts.
