I've wondered for a while just how much solar it would take to power the world instead of the archaic fossil fuels we use today. The guys and girls over at TechInsider answered the question for me.


Here's how we power the world.

America Is Dead!

You think that’s democracy you’re tasting? Wrong. While you were sleeping, they secretly replaced your democracy with Oligarchy. That super-rich, sweet tasting form of government that fattens the pockets a select few in power while the masses get to starve on empty promises and the tasty calories of false hope. You better like eating air, because the super-rich powers-that-be would gladly watch you starve to death as they take the last crumpled dollar from your wallet. 


If the preceding dose of reality was too much for you, perhaps you can digest the true fate of American politics with former President Jimmy Carter’s eloquent words. The super-rich have been raping this country for a long time. It’s no surprise. That’s what the rich have always done. The fact that most people don’t do anything about it is even more disturbing. Seriously, the transformation from republic democracy to oligarchy is blatant, pervasive, and painfully obvious.…

Self-Publishing Struggles!

Sometimes I don’t care. I mean I just don’t give a damn. It’s not always and the feeling goes away pretty quick, but it happens nonetheless. I mean, devoting all your time and energy to positive thinking is great and all, but sometimes, it just doesn’t work. Sometimes you just have to say screw it. Forgive me if that’s blunt and crude, but it’s true. That negativity seeps in and takes hold; it’s like a poison. And in real life, every once in a while it wins. 
The trick is to make sure negativity’s win is only once in a while. Right now, I’m struggling to get my book ready for publication. It’s a long, slow, involved, long, slow, difficult, long, slow, and stressful process. Anyone else who’s been through it can attest to that. And it feels like it’s going to take a thousand lifetimes to get finished. Keep in mind, the story is actually finished. Right now I’m just working on getting it ready for readers to actually enjoy. I mean, I’d l…

5 reasons the Force Awakens Trailer is Terrible

I’m sure I’ll piss off a lot of people with my opinion. Truth is some people should really just get over it. First thing to remember is this is just a teaser trailer, nothing more. Everyone is a critic and you can’t please them all. So I’m not going to try.
I didn’t like either Star Trek movie J.J. Abrams made, and it’s looking like I won’t like the Star Wars movie he’s working on right now either. I’ve kept in mind that this trailer is just a teaser, but from what I’ve seen so far, read so far, and previous movies made by Abrams, he’s not going to do anything revolutionary.
1.  Overreliance on CGI CGI is a great tool to get a shot done when it just can’t be done in ‘real life’. The thing is for Star Wars, everything the Millennium Falcon, X-wing and Tie fighters, speeders, and droids do can already be shown in model and stop motion. We’ve seen it before in the Original Trilogy. The little bits of CGI thrown into the Special Editions o…
