Welcome to Tattoo Vampire’s Bar, Grill and Flophouse. Thanks for the visit. You’re going to find left-leaning posts here for the most part because I’m a proud liberal. Tender Trump fans might not like this blog.

I don’t despise conservatives… except those who willingly align themselves with Donald Trump, who is the worst president of the last 100 years or so. Don’t even try to convince me otherwise.

I post about things other than politics on occasion, so hopefully I’ll make you laugh once in a while, or give you something you genuinely find amusing or informative. I’m interested in pretty much anything to do with science, technology, people and society.
