11 Types of Friends You Absolutely Must Have

Some of us have a few close friends, while others seem to have dozens but may or may not be tight with everyone. As I thought about it more, I realized that we all need a core group of important people in our lives.

11 Types of Friends You Absolutely Must Have


  • A friend you can call at 3 AM who tells you "it's okay, I was up anyhow" even if they weren't.
  • A friend that is a much better cook than you
  • A friend that can diagnose the weird sound your car is making and tell you whether or not you actually need a mechanic.
  • A friend that can do the same with your computer.
  • A friend that owns a circular saw, an electric screwdriver, a nail gun, a hot glue gun, an extension cord, hedge clippers and leaves their garage unlocked.
  • A friend who doesn't judge you when you tell them about your strange sex dream
  • A friend who likes black jelly beans and the pretzels in Chex mix.
  • A friend who doesn't mind when you take a swig from their Gatorade/beer/Coke.
  • A friend who knows how to fix it so you don't have to jiggle the handle every time you flush the toilet.
  • A friend that has seen you cry.
  • A friend that won't testify against you in court, no matter what.


This doesn't mean you need eleven people. This could be one person, and if it is, marry them right now. I did.

If you have any of these qualities, your friendship will be highly sought after.

If you have a friend that has none of these qualities, you might as well just get rid of them now; it'll save you time in the future.

If you're missing any of these friends, start looking because you need more people in your life.

By the way… I stay up late, can fix the computer, and I totally want to hear about your strange sex dreams, they make me feel more normal. Reach out if you need someone like me.

Marvels of the Science: Rocks and Things

My kids have a science test today. We've been studying rocks and minerals, erosion and weathering, and other science-y geology stuff all week.

All that work, and we just should have done in Internet search. After all, everything on the Internet is factual when it comes to science.

Here's a perfect example, a quick documentary that teaches us everything we know about rocks and 2 minutes and 43 seconds.

Stretch your brains!

More Realistic Anniversary Gift Traditions

New Anniversary Gifts Destined to become Traditional My wife and I have been married for 20 years today. Over the past 20 years I made efforts each year to observe the traditional anniversary gifts. Some of them are certainly more difficult than others, and many of them are hard to find gift worthy in the modern age.
Therefore, I offer you a modern take on anniversary gifts. How many of these will become traditional?
First Anniversary – The Ramen Noodle anniversary. Let’s face it, you blew $30,000 on the wedding, and your student loan debt hasn’t gone anywhere. Share a Cup O’ Noodles. Eat with chopsticks on the floor because you can’t yet afford a couch.
Second Anniversary – The Puppy Anniversary. She’s been looking at you with those eyes that say she wants to start a family, but you just bought a new couch. Get her a puppy instead.
Third Anniversary – The Kinky Lingerie Anniversary. Leather, silk or lace can re-fire the engines after a year of flannel pajamas that smell like the puppy,…

Donald Trump Hates Freedom of the Press, But Why?

Donald J Trump is challenging the concept of free press. He has publicly ridiculed ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, BBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and many other news organizations. Some have called out his twitter rants as being distinctly fascist.
This past week on Meet the Press, John McCain, a Republican member of the U.S. Senate, while not mentioning Donald Trump specifically, called suppression of the press "how dictators get started". Freedom of the Press in the Constitution
Freedom of the Press isn't a new concept. Our founding fathers put it into the original Bill of Rights. Even in the 1789 they realized that a free press was essential for maintaining checks and balances to the power of government.

The Press in Colonial America
Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison understood the power and value of the press. But what, exactly, was the press in pre-Constitution America? In colonial America around 1760 there were only 24 new…
