I gave up drinking ten years ago this month. Not sure if today’s the exact day, but marking the on-oniversary on Saint Patrick’s Day seems appropriate, so I’m going with it. Erin go bragh!
I came to hashing as a member of a profession with tight camaraderie and similar drinking and singing rituals, flying fighters [...]
Just putting this out there: I hate the name of Tucson’s bicycle hash kennel, the Pedalfiles. One, it’s misspelled (although that may be intentional). Two, it repels outsiders (if there’s one thing no one jokes about, it’s sex with children). Three, it has an impact on membership, discouraging recruits who haven’t been exposed to hash [...]
A hasher named Chef Boy R Dum from Southern Pines H3 in North Carolina wrote up a public service announcement for new hashers, explaining the spirit and “rules” of hashing. Rules in quotes, of course, because Rule One is There Are No Rules. And yet here’s a PSA full of them.

IN case you ever wondered, hashing is a brisk walk or run through the [...]
It’s fun to get mail from Half-Mind Weblog readers, but I have mixed feelings about this letter:
Stumbled across your Hash Rants last night, and, suddenly, I’d spent a good hour or so reading.
I very briefly participated in hashing in my town, over about 6 months, late 2012-mid-2013-ish. I quit due to some of [...]
An interesting thing happened after I posted yesterday’s bash trash. The boyfriend of one of the hashers let me know he was upset I used her hash name in the writeup. I’m still trying to figure out if he wants me to delete it and use another name instead; he hasn’t answered.
Some of you [...]
This PSA has been running the rounds on Facebook and Twitter (though not, it seems, on Hash-L or HashSpace). I’ll give it a push by reposting it here (if it’s hard to read, click on it to view it full-size on Flickr):
Anyone who has read my rants over the years knows [...]
