I hate people

As an alert and defensive driver, I’m constantly looking out for other cars. I do this by keeping my eyes on the road as often as I can by not texting while driving and the Windows Phone Music app doesn’t require my eyes on the device to switch to a new song with the gestures I can use. I also use my turn signals in advance, check my mirrors, go the speed limit, make complete stops at stop signs and never tailgate. As long as you’re going the speed limit, I’m fine and I’ll give you room. I don’t want to get into an accident or risk getting pulled over for speeding or tail-gating. That’s just stupid. So why does it seem I am the only one conscious of other people on the road?

Maybe it’s just my personality that I don’t want to piss off anyone, but this isn’t walking on a sidewalk and making sure I don’t bump into someone. This is a road, with people driving heavy thousand dollar machines that can do a lot of damage. It’s something people take for granted unfortunately, and forget the magnitude of their poor actions. It’s one thing to be inexperienced with driving, experience comes with time and patience. But some people just don’t care about anyone else and go by their own rules. Every time I see it in action while driving, it infuriates me.

So please, the next time you’re driving, don’t be worried about that text message, think about how your front end could become a T with another car.

Piratz Tavern has Closed, and I'm Glad

If you've ever seen the show Bar Rescue, you know that in most episodes, bar owners are decently pleased with the renovations that happen at the end of the episode. Understandably, some of the owners aren't pleased because they loved the bar they had, they just wanted it to be successful. To those owners who quietly took down the updates, or even kept them, that's cool. It's your business, do what you gotta do. One episode in particular did more than just some updates, however.

In the episode, a pirate bar in a corporate part of town in a state without an ocean called for help to Jon Taffer. Apparently, a bar with a pirate theme and a complete staff of costumed pirates in a state not known for pirates doesn't work very well, and the owner was over $900,000 in debt. Taffer found the usual mistakes: bland drinks, bad food, and cocky owners. When Taffer suggested to move away from a pirate theme to the owners and bartenders, it was like he suggested they cut their arm…

LG V20 vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 7

I showed up to the T-Mobile store on launch day of the Note 7. I waited in a line of 7, which the T-Mobile folk claimed was the most they'd ever seen for any launch. I intended to the get the blue one, but I settled for the silver one. Afterwards, my experience was alright, this is it. This is the phone I intend to keep for a while. And it was just alright.

When I first switched from the iPhone 6 Plus I had, I intended my next phone to have more useful features. Sure, the iPhone was great, but there was nothing special about it. So the next phone I got was the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Had it not been for the lackluster battery life, it was great. I loved the S Pen, I thought the IR Blaster was convenient as hell, and I just felt like I could do what I wanted with the phone. After a few months I wanted to find a suitable replacement, and I went for a Samsung Galaxy S6 Active. That was great too, better battery life, still had the IR Blaster, but it was noticeably slower. Then I got …
