The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

My emails to Chuck!

I think we did something like this before, something similar. Alright, Chuck and I stay in contact via email quite a bit and I occasionally will come up with crazy/weird/unbelievable stories of something that fictitiously happened to me to see if he believes it. There have been a handful, but I’d like to highlight a couple famous ones. My personal favorite is when I was away from my computer for a while and Chuck was expecting and email from me. When I finally got back to my computer (after a hair cut) I told Chuck the reason for the delay was because, out of no where, a stray dog attacked me by my car in my office parking lot…and that I was in the waiting room at the ER using my Treo. Part of his response: ‘Where did it bite you?!!?’ Hands down one of the funnier emails ever. Seriously, I’m laughing right now. A stray dog? One of the more recent ones, today in fact, goes something like this. I was out for a bit and hadn’t talked to Chuck for a minute…and when I got back I told him that I was at the bookstore and got a call about an emergency meeting back at my office about 5 minutes away. I told him that while I was driving back, what appeared to be a black plastic bag was tumbling across the highway and it ‘hit’ my car…and that immediately I got a flat tire and my car limped to a stop…when I got out I discovered that there were quills stuck all over my tire and some blood as if I hit an animal, not a plastic bag. I told him that I must have hit a porcupine. And the best part…I actually had him for a few minutes. Now, if this isn’t the most ‘out there’ and nonsensical post you’ve ever read…then, I don’t know what to tell you. Email us your thoughts.
