I have four topics to ramble about today (if you don’t want to read about baseball, skip to the three more entertaining topics below):

Happy Halloween: Vampire electronics and sports

Early this morning amidst the dense fog, I saw a woman dressed as a ladybug, with curved orange wings and all, riding a bicycle on her way to work/school. It was a surreal moment.
Here’s a Halloween concept for you: “vampire electronics.” This refers to all of your plugged-in appliances and entertainment devices consuming little [...]
