A Review: Alpha Brain

Seth Barham

Some of you probably know by now that I am an absolute skeptic by default; I will not believe what you are trying to sell me - be it religion, essential oils or otherwise - unless the evidence is there. Thusly, I am very suspicious when it comes to any sort of supplement. Some are actually dangerous or don’t have any research supporting them, others are not even what they claim to be.

A Review: Fisher Space Pen

Seth Barham

When people hear about how little I own, they naturally assume that either dislike material things or am simply ambivalent about what tools I buy to plod on through this deep, dark wilderness we call life. Nothing could be further from the truth. I love solid products and research everything I buy before I buy it, probably a bit more than I should. I want something that is stylish, functional (preferably doing more than one thing) and is going to last me a while. This philosophy extends to everything. Yep, even a pen.
