You Gotta Go Anyway, So Why Not Go Geek

Today’s post is a bit morbid, but something we all have to think about eventually.  None of us really want to face it, but the truth of the matter is that the ONLY guarantee in life is that it’s going to end someday.  Once you accept that you’re gonna go no matter what, then you […]
