Articles by Howard Gibson

Gun Surveys — HTML PDF
Discussion about guns and gun control is fairly deranged, based on all sorts of sloppy analysis and anecdotal information. I take a close look at some of it. I last updated this a long time ago, and I originally wrote it quite a longer time ago. Crime and murder rates have come way down since these studies were published.
History Movies — HTML
History movies are not always historically accurate. Who'd have thunk it?
The Hunger Games HOWTO — HTML
I have seen the movie. I have read the book. I am inspired!
Forum Censorship — HTML
Why were you blocked by or kicked off of Facebook or Twitter? Did you write it, or did you forward something somebody else wrote?
Gearhead Keyboard — HTML
I bought one of these things for my TV set.
Shirt Pockets — HTML
[Pocket Protector] I have uncovered an evil plot! See the photo to the right.
Cartoons — HTML
When I was at Ryerson, I did cartoons for the Eyeopener. Of course, they did not have a website back when I was there. I was interested in doing cartoons for an engineering magazine, but I could not come up with enough good gags.
Do Not Assemble — HTML

Mechanical Design — HTML
I have written some mechanical design articles.
GNU/Linux — HTML
I run it on all my computers at home. I write stuff about it.
