Emanating through the ether.

Let me set the stage. Watching television with the family. We began to discuss, at my prompting, how exactly Jeopardy gives someone contributing no actual value a quarter of a million dollars. We were talking about advertisements and the free market and the relevance of media in this context. The conversation receded.

We kept watching. Football and the such. After dinner and a while that new Apple commercial with the multicolored jumpsuit men came on. I said I didn’t like it. I went out on a limb. I said it represents a sectarian theology as found in Islam and thought it indicates the influence of Islam on Western society.

Everyone thought it was ridiculous. Then my little brother went to unplug his computer at which point the power strip it was plugged into nearly exploded. Apparently he had plugged the cord on top of itself.


We had to go downstairs and flip some fuses.

I said I had spoken of the devil and he manifested himself. That we should start praying to the saints.

The power strip is busted. My computer charger still works. Looks like it just busted my brother’s charger.

That’s just something that happened.

I must be some kind of ignoramus.

I would imagine the devil would have more spectacular powers than a power strip prank.

I don’t think of spectacular power when it comes to the devil.

I used to love when he said Put a fist through your steel plate door.

I’ve tried with Metallica. I’m just a sucker for bass lines though. They just hit you with both guitars at the same time.

The daily earnings are more like 30,000-40,000, so to earn a cool quarter mil, you would need to win repeatedly for more than a week.

Als, protip, if you don't want people to think you're ridiculous then don't make up ridiculous sh*t.

There’s some dude on who has won several times and he’s at around 270.

I guess he was a bartender in NY who just decided to do Jeopardy.

I got lucky playing at home though. One of the categories was Calculus. I love me some calculus.

I don’t think you can say pro tip though actually.

I mean if I get the required experience and pass the PE exam, I might say pro tip, but only if I’m feeling like a total douche nozzle.

So I went to the bar. Maybe to drink away the unclean spirits that followed me from the conversation last night. Alcohol is a disinfectant. There was a couple there. They’re there often. I was politely engaged in conversation with them and the bartender.

It was better than last night. I walked there last night as well. I just had one beer last night. I had three tonight. Last night a person I knew in high school was there. We talked briefly and I headed home.

Tonight was a more varied crowd. Less personal acquaintances. More bar crowd that I’m familiar with. More able to play up persona rather than reminisce.

And there was an old guy with a southern accent who came in at the end of the night. He had a story. Nice classic end of the night bar closing kind of story. I appreciated it and happily walked home smoking my cigarette listening to Flipper at a moderate volume...
