How to Get Rid of Telemarketers

From an Ex-Telemarketer: How to Get Rid of Telemarketers

Telemarketers can be a pain in the ass (there is really no other way to put it) but responding in the wrong way can make the situation worse. As an ex-telemarketer, I know first-hand what it is like to be on both sides of the call and trust me, telemarketing sucks for both parties involved. … Continue reading

Wired Magazine - Silicon Valley Hipster Douchebags

What Happened to Wired Magazine? Silicon Valley Douchebag Hipsters

Ah, yet another content provider selling-out to try to be “cool”. I recently wrote about what happened to the Discovery Channel and their now complete decline into trash TV, and now Wired Magazine is heading in a similar direction. I want to preface this rant by saying that I am (was) a huge fan of Wired. … Continue reading

What is a camless engine?

What is a Camless Engine, and Why Should You Care?

So as not to bore the car fanatics, I will keep the following description brief. A camshaft is found in a car engine that enables the opening and closing of valves as the engine rotates to enable combustion — bringing in the fuel (intake valve) and expelling what’s left after combustion (exhaust valve). I have embedded … Continue reading

If you have played them already then I am surprised you could peel your eyes away from the screen long enough to read this blog post. You already know this but others don’t: Battlefield … Continue reading

The Lego Movie Review — Random, Hilarious and Sarcastic

The Lego Movie Review | Sarcastic, Random and Hilarious

An ordinary LEGO minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil LEGO tyrant from gluing the universe together. The Lego movie is sarcastic, random and downright hilarious. Okay, so you could have gathered that much from the title. Usually, I like to end my posts … Continue reading

Free Tax Software Canada | Studio Tax

Best Free Tax Software Canada | Studio Tax Review

It’s about that time of year again — tax season. That means spending copious amounts of time collecting forms, stubs, and receipts to appease the good ol’ taxman. To simplify things, I used to go to H&R Block. What I didn’t realize is that H&R Block provides little service over and above what you can … Continue reading

Dell XPS 18 Review - Desktop and Tablet in one

Dell XPS 18 Review | My New “Ridiculous” Computer

“I just bought a new computer”. Normally this is something someone will post to FB, grab a few likes and move on, however the computer I recently purchased is pretty unique, so I thought I would share it in a more detailed post. I recently picked up the Dell XPS 18, an 18-inch All-in-One / … Continue reading

How to Help Put An End to Smoking

How to Help Put An End to Smoking

Smoking is a very personal issue for me. My grandmother, easily the most kind-hearted woman I’ve ever met, lost her life several decades too early as a result of lung cancer, thanks to second-hand smoke. It was at that time, when I was still very young, that I decided I would do what I could … Continue reading

Is Soy Bad for Men?

Is Soy Bad for Men? It sure is!

This is not a random interesting topic I have decided to write about — I’ve had the privilege (sarcasm!) to experience the dangers of soy myself. What Makes Soy Bad for Men? Soy is a great little bean and has become very popular because of its health benefits. Overall, soy is a great addition to … Continue reading

Happy New Year! I want to take this moment to thank my subscribers and guests to my blog over this past year! This post is my 165th, which is hard to believe.
