Words are failing

Posted: December 30, 2016 in My Whirled

The Thinking Viking is only human.

What the fuck, 2016?  America?  WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING.
As I watch heroes fall, I realize that we have to step up and take their place.

I’m gonna watch this year burn and gear for battle.


RIP Ragnar


The Thinking Viking is  …
asking the United States Electoral College to do the right thing before we abolish it or just toss the fucking gerrymanderered pile of shit into the bin. You were made for two reasons. 1 – scale/ mail delay, physical paper ballot issues, paper availability/ print size, and logistics made physical vote counts very expensive/ seriously time consuming.
(Vote your inner voice.  If you can look yourself in the face while you brush your teeth tomorrow and say..
“I made Trump President” ..then go for it.  eat coal and your Chinese hookers and polyester campaign hats)



I am.


been a while since my hands worked on an engine like this

The Thinking Viking

The Thinking Viking is, technically, first mate aboard the Saltshaker, a 39′ Contessa racing yacht moored at an undisclosed location. (Plan B, and/or zombies you know?), and we (me and the captain) were trying ti figure out why the tachometer wasn’t working. Volts, temp, both also from engine leads, were good.  Ahh – look – loose grounds. I’m watching the gauge as he tightens down the nuts, and turns it on, sure we had found the trouble.

Nope. We almost set the boat on fire.

I just now  got home after fixing the damage a week later with a third man brought in (who happened to be in town totally coincidentally and is the guy who I learned a LOT from. OLD friend.)

Here’re the pics from the job.  Enjoy.


Thanks for coming, and don’t forget your soldering iron

#StillSanders Despite all my rage, I am still some goddamned taking action.

The Thinking Viking

The Thinking Viking has video from the 10/10/2015 Bernie Sanders rally in Boulder, CO.  #Bernie2016  #TeamBernie

Here are the links.  Wordpress doesn’t play very nice with embedded external media, expect updates.  I’ll edit more editorial notes tonight.

Please bear in mind these clips were taken with my camera held above my head to see over the crowd.

Open source video, share as desired.  Haven’t had time to tag the youtube pages even.

Think about it.

Hey America, Can We Talk?

Posted: November 6, 2016 in My Whirled

Hey America, can we talk? I cannot fucking believe that any honest american would vote for Donald fucking Trump to lead us. Do you seriously think this ass hat has good intentions? Can you seriously compare his resume with that bitch Hillary’s and say he is more qualified? You want HIS values tainting everything you do as an American? Don’t call me a sheep, I’m no fucking fool. I’ll stand behind HRC with a fucking pitchfork in her ass before I’ll give anything to Donny. Bernie has thought about this, just like I did. #StillSanders

The Thinking Viking is mobilizing.

The weather is clearly aimed at spring.  People are waking up, finally starting to listen.

But shouting at a twitter post or a Facebook meme isn’t going to be enough.

An artfully worded comment on a wordpress blog like this one does little  for the bigger picture.

The embers of the socio-political wildfire are spread wide, time to fan the flames.

I think you know what I am talking about.

Open Letter to Bernie Sanders

Posted: April 6, 2016 in My Whirled

The Thinking Viking has checked his credentials, and confirmed.

Senator Sanders, I qualify.

I suggest The Thinking Viking as a running mate and VP for your 2016 Presidential Campaign.!/articles/2/essays/82/presidential-eligibility

I would like to invite you and your family to my family’s home for dinner.

I’ll cook – trust me, I know my way around a kitchen.  I can serve about 8.

Let’s discuss your VP choices and have some dinner.  And maybe ice cream after…or pie.  or nothing.

Think about it,
