I thought this blog would be my ticket to the big time UNTIL I found a spam email in my inbox that actually offered me...now wait for it and maybe you all need to sit down first....that I can become an OFFICIAL product tester for the FISHING CLUB OF AMERICA!!! The sweetest part is they actually let me KEEP the fishing stuff after I test it? And I thought Christmas was on December 25th, Not January whatever today is. Do you think, If I apply myself that I could visit them in Minnetonka Mn? It's always been a dream of mine.
Okay, first of all I DO get the irony. Having a guy that fears most everything that lives in the water testing your fishing equipment is not the greatest business model. Is a spear gun fishing equipment? Is that little octopus bashing club fishing equipment?
I don't mind GOING fishing. I like being in the boat. I will even put the hook in the water, however, once something bites the hook it's out of my hands. Someone needs to grab the rod and bring the beast into the boat. Then THEY need to take it off the hook, club it mercilessly to death (well I might do that part) and then clean and bread it before I see it again. Don't want to do all that for me? I would rather throw the reel in the water than touch that thing at the end of the line.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
