We sometimes forget how vast the Greek empire was — Continue reading »

Amazon and Walmart

    📂 Uncategorized     # ,     🗨 No Comments

I don't know what the traders were really expecting when Amazon reported losses two weeks ago. It's the same broken record for the past 20 years. Trust us, we are investing in the future.

$231,000 Star Trek Rifle

    📂 Star trek,Uncategorized         🗨 No Comments

A rifle prop from the original Star Trek pilot was recently sold by an auction house for nearly a quarter of a million dollars. Normally I would scoff at such excesses, but then this is Star Trek. If I had that kind of disposable money, I would probably splurge quite a bit on the Star — Continue reading »
