No More Nights of Blood and Fire

I am going to do my best never to put my heart in this situation again, time to put up some walls and pay for some hookers. Ladies, I may be emotionally unavailable and have a shattered heart, but some of you weirdos dig that in a man and it should make me more attractive to you, so I am free and available to give beard rides.

Mental_Floss Final Issue in Print

Since this is about the magazine, here are facts from this, the Final Issue. Did you know that since there wasn't a lot of edible fish to be found in Quebec, Canada, the Catholic Church classified beavers as fish so the Canadians would have something to eat during Lent?

Where I am at in this endeavor.

Howdy y'all, I have had a few reviews in a row so I thought I would post an update on how things are going on the getting the fuck out of Shawshank front. My truck is back and functioning properly after dropping almost $1700 on the front end being pretty much completely replaced. Luckily I … Continue reading Where I am at in this endeavor.

I GOT PAID! AAAAND it’s gone.

I doubt anyone from Tuscumbia, Missouri reads Chop's Guide but I have a friend who not only works at Dispatch with me, she has also been working at the T-Town Deli. She cooks for us in dispatch all the time and it is always good so imagine what she can to with an actual facility. She brought me an Enchilada the other day and it was pretty fantastic... would be great if I could sweet talking her into delivering me foodstuffs every day I am in Dispatch. Hint, Hint, Crystal.

One of the things I actually lucked into as a kid was that I grew up most of my life with 3 channels. ABC, PBS and CBS (I think) and only ABC and PBS came in clearly so I watched a TON of edutainment and due to that I grew up with a wonder about the world. I also spent a lot of time watching British Comedies with my mom which I blame for making my heartache for places I have never been the whole world over. wild-kingdomIf it wasn't Sesame Street it was Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom or Nova, Bill Nye The Science Guy (although he has turned out to be half a moron lately, suggesting that people who don't agree with him on global warming, oops, global cooling, oops, climate change should be jailed).

My very first guest post! Saint Petersburg, Russia – Location Review — Single Man’s Paradise

St. Petersburg is the second largest city in Russia and home to women who absolutely blow my mind. I have never been to a place where the women, just going to the corner store, dress like they are going out on Saturday night. And the way these girls look dressed up… you will feel a pain in your stomach from falling in love several times a minute.

Thailand vs. Philippines: The move. Maybe.

Howdy, One of the MANY things I have to figure out for my hopeful future move towards living my life as a long term traveler is where to start. There are several great, inexpensive places for a novice, location independent, nomad to live so narrowing it down is an ordeal in and of itself. I … Continue reading Thailand vs. Philippines: The move. Maybe.
