Safety Not Guaranteed

Honestly I had forgotten why I even started writing this blog. I've tried so many times to build myself an online presence; but I never really do get my own point. It's not about forcing content to come out of me. So what if a year goes by without a post? The point is to write about stuff I'm passionate about, and lately I've felt too busy to be truly passionate about some stuff. That's o.k.! That's the point of life; peaks and valleys. That said, today I found something to be passionate enough about that I figured it was … [Read More]

What an amazing job. “Filming in the suit was the most surreal thing I’ve done in 20 years of snowboarding,” says Hughes of the charged salopettes. “Luckily there was plenty of … [Read More...]

Having Fun With QR Codes

It's amazing what "new" technologies can do in the right hand. I put new in quotes there because the technology we're talking about today, QR codes, was invented by Toyota in 1994. However, since the invention of these fascinating little images we have found tons of fun ways to use them. So, what exactly are they? They're a lot like bar codes, except that instead of being limited to just a few numbers some QR codes can have as many as 7000 characters. You can make QR codes that include your … [Read More...]

Even nerds go outside every now and then

I gained about 12 lbs while traveling over the last three months and I feel horrible about it. I know that toys and video games and sitting at a computer performing modern feats of magic is amazing and fun but it is important to watch your health too. I remember a few years ago there were a ton of stories of people dying while playing games for days at a time (mostly in Korea) and people losing their kids because of gaming addictions (here in the USA unfortunately). Let's not let that happen to … [Read More...]
