• About Me

    I’m an opinionated Grumpy Old Man. I enjoy the intellectual give and take that goes along with that, but have very little patience for stupid people (Note: there is a big difference between “stupid” and “educated”. Some of the stupidest people I’ve ever met have a PhD…). Beside arguing, I like to build things in almost any media. Right now I’m mostly building in wood, Lego, and a bunch of different electronic media. I teach in a number of different venues - from preschool all the way through graduate school. Subjects range from talmud to neuroscience to engineering.

    For fun, I like to bash people with swords (OK, so they’re made of foam. It’s still fun). Although I spend a lot of my time in a wheelchair, I manage to keep pretty active (Like bashing people with swords). I am a libertarian, and have a hard time finding anything good to say about government or politicians. OK, politicians might make good sausage, but that's about as good as it gets.

Pictures or not? let me know…

Hey all you loyal readers – and the rest of you too! I’ve got a question for you. In some of my posts, I put clip art – either things that I think are good illustrations of whatever I’m writing, or simply snarky stick-in-the-eye sarcasm, or even (now and then) something that I just think is cool. Other times, I don’t put any graphics at all in my posts. I got to thinking about it, and realized that there wasn’t any particualr reason I do or don’t, for some reason it just happens that way.

So here’s the question: What do YOU prefer? In an effort to please my audieance (that would be you), I’m going to request that you participate in a simple poll – just leave a reply or email me, and let me know what you prefer….

thanks a ton! And I really WILL take the results ito account in my future writings…..

  1. Personally, I tend to put pictures in my posts whenever the inclusion of the same would make my post more interesting or humorous (or would further a point I’m making – I have an upcoming post on the teacher blog where I make reference to a neon sign, so I posted a shot of a neon sign.)

    My vote is for pictures when they work for you. Don’t force it if the idea of an image doesn’t come to you…

  2. Love your snarky stick-in-the-eye sarcasm.

  3. Me too, and I also like the graphics that go along with your stick-in-the-eye (lovely image, that) snarcasm. If you feel inspired to find a graphic that would augment your usual inyerface – ism, I say do it, please.

    I like graphics.
