VIZIO LCD HDTV ~ “No signal” then shuts off ~ SOLUTION!

When I turned "ON" our VIZIO LCD HDTV, the screen turned blue, displayed the text "No signal," then shut off. No matter what buttons I pressed on the remote or the VIZIO HDTV itself, when I turned on the TV it automatically shut off. F*CK! The behavior started when we...

Obama Scales Back Goals for America after Visiting Denny’s

Will The Onion take over where Colbert and Stewart left off? I sort of doubt it. To my mind, The Onion focuses on satire for satire's sake, whereas Colbert or Stewart might direct their satire in a specific direction on their moral compass. In any case, this video...

How to pack for weeks in a 22-inch carry-on

Clever "bundle" method for efficiently packing a body-load of clothing into a 22-inch carry-on. The demonstrator calls it the "bundle method,"--or the "Gussy" method after his mom who created it 🙂 But it's the unpacking that I wonder about. Doesn't look particularly...

I lost my virginity in a hammock

That didn't come out right. "I'm no longer a hammock virgin—I slept my first night in a hammock." That's better. My first hammock experience was not in the "piney woods" as hammock enthusiast "Shug" would say. I took the safe approach and hanged (hung?) the hammock in...

Ronald Reagan quote on separation of church and state

How quickly the GOP forgets... We establish no religion in this country. We command no worship. We mandate no belief, nor will we ever. Church and state are and must remain separate. ~ Ronald Reagan Found this on my Facebook news feed this morning. Sorry if it's a...

Oats Studios – Volume 1 – Rakka

Volume 1 of Rakka begins a thrilling, visceral story I dearly hope gets completed. Coming out of Oats Studios, directed by Neill Blomkamp and starring Sigourney Weaver, this short film hooked me quick and never let go. Great ride.

Florence Pugh Eats 11 English Dishes

Florence Pugh's modern, almost boyish mannerisms create a fun contrast to her Victorian (?) attire in this video where she eats  "a bunch of British food." Done for Vogue, this nicely produced video of a very witty Florence Pugh (pronounced "pew") was surprisingly...

Who Set Up Daenerys to Get Ambushed? – Game of Thrones S8E4

Spoilers: @Talking_Thrones theorizes about how Euron knew where Daenerys would be for the ambush of her dragons and fleet. With Jon taking a separate route, did Sansa leak the information, hoping Daenerys would be taken out? Seems unlikely since that significantly...
