Resurrection. Early Childhood Memories.

August 31, 2009 by


I was four when I left Chicago. I was 25 when I came back and just left it a few hours ago. Before we left, I visited the most vivid source of memories: my old daycare which happened to be situated right next to my mom’s place of employment. My mom’s place of employment might […]

Kudos to Nanotech: The Instant Drinking Water Filter

August 5, 2009 by


Now this isn’t mindless marketing for some other new water technology. This is simply bad, real bad Michael Jackson. When I was entertaining thoughts of an anarcho-primitivist lifestyle relying on mainly hunter-gathering, the first thing that came to mind was about how to get water. The second thing that came to mind would be how […]
