Watch As I Wave My Nerd Flag

Be prepared for a journey of nerdy excellence aboard the TARDIS, Starship Enterprise, and the Millennium Falcon. On occasion, I've also been known to drive a DeLorean. When not driving the DeLorean, I chill with my friends the Winchester brothers in their Metallicar (1967 Chevy Impala) listening to the greatest hits of mullet rock, saving people, and hunting things. You know, the family business.

Watch as I successfully wield the universe's only double-rainbow colored sonic lightsaber in the defense against droids, storm troopers, Daleks, Cybermen, Orcs, Uruk-hai, cave trolls, Nazgul, and Klingons. I'm also a skilled archer and quite handy with a sword. And a laser gun.

When not saving the universe, I like to read, knit, and dance.

Amazon is working hard to limit the amount of states requiring the collection of sales tax on online purchases. The company recently struck a deal with the state of Texas in which the state agreed to delay the collection of sales tax. [REUTERS]

This is a big issue facing the election this year in California.  The revenue we could earn from Amazon’s sales tax would be a HUGE boost to our severely broken economy.  Obviously, this isn’t going to fix everything, but it’d be a step in the right direction for having large corporations to follow the law like they’re supposed to.
