We realize it’s not early January anymore…we had some personal and professional issues, so thanks for sticking with us!

What’s your nerdy New Year’s Resolution? Why do schools cancel so many days of school when it snows? Who are the worst Marvel characters? How does Superman have to do with Zach (not) growing a vagina?

My Daughter Ruined Time Travel for Me

By  •  Blog

When you become a parent, there are a lot of little things that you lose – sleep, personal freedoms, the ability to use the bathroom without the threat of unflattering household commentary afterwards — but, the one thing I didn’t expect to have ripped away from me when I became a dad was my steadfast belief in the overall awesomeness of time travel.

But that’s exactly what happened. I absolutely hate time travel now. The very idea makes me shudder.

And it’s all my daughter’s fault.

Great Scott! Dad’s DeLorean Makes Sure Daughter is at School on Time

BTTF Car

A British dude by the name of Steve Wickenden is making sure his daughter gets to school (dot dot dot) on time. His almost-exact replica of the Back to the Future DeLorean time machine turns heads while driving his eight year old daughter, Molly, to school.

“We certainly turn a few heads,” Wickenden told The Daily Mail. “There are always people waving and beeping at us when we drive past. There certainly isn’t anyone else at the school gates with a flux capacitor.”

Wikipedia Plays The World’s Smallest Violin For New Fathers

So I was on the internet today and coincidentally searching for something completely unrelated to what I wanted to currently write about. I think I was going through Back To The Future II mp3s or something. Anyways I landed on Wikipedia and then this dude comes out of nowhere and slaps me in the face.

May or may not be the original caption.

The words “new father” grabbed my attention right off the bat as I said to myself, “Heyyyyyyyy I’M A NEW FATHER 2!!!1one!”. Whether that was a coincidence or some pure form of mind blowing Minority Report advertising, I will never find out. Nevertheless, I stood up from my chair and proceeded to applaud in the direction of my screen.

Okay this peaked my interest a little. So I thought I would mosey on over to my left mouse button to see what this dude wants.

Nintendo turned 25 on the 18th.

A sobering realization of how we’ve grown, how we’ve changed and how we’ve evolved. It’s a reflection of what looked possible for the future when we were kids, and what the future of technology could potentially supply and entertain our imaginations.

Today is a new era.

We have 3D movies, hoverboards and flying cars. It’s a time where we can sit down and watch the Cubs finally win a World Series at Cafe 80s with a hot special and a Pepsi Perfect. These are the best years of our… hold up.

Oh right, nothing has changed. Oh well, f*ck it.
