I am not a man of many hats.
I'm not speaking metaphorically. I'm talking about hats, in all their literal, haberdasherial glory. Though I have acquired lots of hats, I am a disorganized flake and lose them all the time. Right now, I just have one. This is not many.   

I once had a job at a large company at which I was not permitted to wear my hats. My headgear ran afoul of the company's offici... Read more of this blog post »

Motivation (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated Jun 14, 2012 03:56PM
Description: This appeared in <i>Chess Life</i> about ten years ago. It was the first piece of fiction I ever sold. They gave me $150. I was ecstatic. In my humble opinion, I think it's pretty funny. Chess players especially should enjoy it, I hope. Thanks for reading. Hope you like it.

Yes, it's got shower rapes AND advanced game theoretical analysis, all in one package. If any agents or publishers stumble across this and are interested in seeing more please contact me.

"I first attempted this book when I was a teenager, spurred on by my love of 2001: A Space Odyssey. I didn't make it very far back then. This second attempt was inspired by a cheap copy I found at Barnes and Noble. I made it about 3/4 of the way th..." Read more of this review »

I borrowed this book from the library and had a chance to renew it online on its last due date, but declined, knowing I’d be accumulating fines. This illustrates one key difference between an econ and a human.

“I want an avowed atheist in the White House. When time comes to push that button, I want whoever's making the decision to understand that once it's pushed, it's over. Finito. They're not gonna have lunch with Jesus. Won't be deflowering 72 virgins on the great shag carpet of eternity, or reincarnated as a cow. I want someone making that decision who believes life on this Earth isn't just a dress rehearsal for something better -- but the only shot we get.”
