I know I should be answering questions people post and writing reviews for things I buy on Amazon. I often solve my own problems with their answers and laugh along with them at their cat pictures. But somewhere in that uncanny valley between my Opinions and my Privacy Settings, I never felt I could contribute.
Originally, my idea was to create a site called simply: The Island of Misfit Ideas (which you of course recognize from the 1964 Christmas classic Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer), but ideas being what they are, other people had the same one, and other people got there first.
They’re just ideas, and all ideas should have a place. So after I stopped being pissed-off that I’d come up with yet another bad idea, I decided to make this site my gift to the Internet: don’t bother looking too closely, it’s turtles all the way down.
