Online Workshop

I have had more then one person send me an e-mail message confused by the fact that visiting the www.djpappas.com has always resulted in an ‘under construction’ page being displayed. Well no more. Although we won’t win any prizes for this page it at least gives you a clue. The links to the right provide some direction […]

Call Tails

Still on the obscure but interesting stuff… This study regarding coin flips suggests two things: 1. You are more likely when flipping a coin to get the coin to land with the same face up as it starts with; and, 2. The weight of the material on the face will cause a coin to land face down […]

Conspiracy Theories

I love conspiracy theories. I’m sure it’s irresponsible to repeat them but I just can’t help myself. The site Alex Jones’ Prison Planet looks like a great resource. For instance, evidently the government is putting tracking devices in our 20 dollar bills. These guys must not have spent much time reheating food in their microwave. The center is […]

Special Information Tone (SIT)

The bride was beautiful and the groom was handsome. The view from the room overlooking the Grand River 20 stories below was excellent. Unfortunately I […]

Some Older Pictures

I was cleaning off my laptop from work and ran across a set of pictures from several years ago. All of them are from Mother I’m sure. One set appears to be from 1994 and the second from 2000. The 1994 photos were taken in Kentucky at Tom and Carol’s. The 2000 photos were taken […]

My Next Car

I’ll confess – I’m a little envious of everyone driving the Hummers around these days. I want a vehicle which looks down into every other car and truck on the road (but not drive a semi). So I was thrilled today to find out that the Army has another future consumer ready vehicle in the […]
