What makes my blood boil…

…is the elitists in the global warming scaremongering movement that tell us that we have to make sacrifices or the world is going to end. Rich people like Al Gore and Sting who say that there is a crisis going on and that we have to change the way we live or the earth itself […]

Are we causing Mars and Jupiter to warm, too?

If there are no Martians or Jupiterians, then the global warming occuring on those planets must be our fault, right? Well, at least we know President Bush has something to do with it.

Does your computer randomly crash and restart?

My computer (about three years old, I guess) was randomly crashing and restarting recently, so I searched around on the Internet for the symptoms and discovered that dust could be the culprit.

Casey’s Critical Thinking has moved!

Well, I’m now at a new domain. It’s been a long time coming.
