Don't take selfies with grizzly bears.

Black bears; yes, grizzly bears; no, panda bears; yes, koala bears; definitely, polar bears; maybe..., as long as you don't smell like a seal.

I say 'NO' to both pandas and polar bear selfies.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Don’t try to use a Canopus ADVC-100 Firewire video D/A converter with a 2000 era Orange Micro Firewire PCI card that has an NEC controller. I can’t stress this strongly enough.

Oh, wait - perhaps that would be more appropriate in the Unofficial Dealmac FAQ.

A friend who used to be a clown with Ringling Brothers (comes with being a juggler) told me to never walk past the lion cage in clown makeup. The story is that lions hate clowns and will pee on them. The only recourse after that is to burn the costume.

No, just data corruption in a PowerMac 7x00/8x00/9x00 with that PCI card. Different colored small squares appear at random in the video. Corruption of data files is also a problem in that setting. Intech’s driver for OS9 allows tweaking of the Firewire driver to reduce the corruption, but changing the Firewire PCI card brand to Adaptec solved the problem entirely for me. I never did get XPostFacto to work in my maxed-out PowerMac 8600, so can’t comment on how well the Orange Micro card would have worked under OSX in one of those machines.

That cartoon gag, where the guy steps on the rake and gets smashed in the face by the handle? Yeah, well, let's just say, be careful out there.

When walking around the corner outside your house, don't cut that corner if you live in skunk territory.

Pro tip: skunks can jump quite high in the air when surprised. I didn't even know that skunks jumped at all.

“ skunks “

I’ve had lots of close calls. In college, taking a shortcut one night; I was just about to step off of a drop off when I saw something move down it the shadows...

On a really hot and humid night, I decided to get out of my third floor bedroom and sleep under the stars at the edge of a baseball field. Suddenly I was wide awake; rolled over, and there was a skunk looking at me from about a foot away. I think it was more startled than I was, as for several minutes I could hear it scurrying away in the distance.

At my Idaho place, skunks are regular visitors. One day I started to pull the tarp off a woodpile, when a skunk came out a few feet away and stared at me as if to say “Are you serious?” I backed off and it went back into the woodpile.

Wait for others to upgrade their operating systems before you do & never buy first generations of anything. And don't respond with rudeness when others are rude.
