I intend to start my video will this way. If I do, I will make it clear that my surroundings area rented set, so not only will none of my beneficiaries get any of the items they see in the video, bet procuring them for said video cost quite a bit of money, reducing how much there is left for anyone to inherit.

I know they won’t be happy with me, but at that point, what are they going to do?

Hey, by the way, my latest book, Run Program, is out now! It's a book about a rogue AI that has the intelligence of a child. You might think that would make the AI less dangerous, but you'd be wrong. Anyway, I'm quite proud of it. Please check it out, if you have a chance.

How to Weigh Your Options

I’ve tried several different types of razor, and found that they all workd equally well, if the goal is to lacerate my face-meat.

Two different razor manufacturers ended up sending me free samples of their products to review after this comic ran. I found that I was perfectly capable of cutting my cheeks and neck to ribbons regardless of what razor I used. I’m currently using a Panasonic electric razor, with which I’m very happy. I’ll admit that if you keep up with replacing the blades and screens it doesn’t work out to be all that much cheaper than disposables, but I lose a lot less blood, and I get to use a gadget!

Yet again, sadly, this comic is based on an actual conversation. A coworker of mine told our supervisor he was smarter than her, and was surprised when she didn’t take “the news” well.

This comic was made way back when one would have to “go get” a video camera. Now, many of us just happen to have HDTV cameras on us at all times, attached to the supercomputers we use as phones. You never know what’s going to date a comic.

As I remember, this comic was actually inspired by an episode of America’s Next Top Model. (Missy used to watch. I would be in the room, doing other things, within sight and earshot of the TV . . . DON’T JUDGE ME!)

Anyway, they had the contestants work with a runway walk coach who started by informing them all that he was far too important to make any effort to learn any of their names, and would be calling all of them “Pumpkin Pie.” Then he had them, one by one, show him their runway walk. Each contestant took three or four steps before he barked, “Wrong. Sit down,” but offered no explanation as to what they’d done wrong or how to fix it.

Applying military boot-camp techniques to teach something as low-stakes as stagecraft struck me funny, so I applied it to office technical support.
