Everything I Know Is Wrong

I know a lot about hashing . . . enough to know I don’t really know anything about hashing.

I grew up thinking once you’ve seen three or more marks after the last check, you’re on. That a false trail could be only three marks long before the BT. That if you can’t see the [...]


Ain’t I a Stinker?

As if I hadn’t stirred the pot enough already . . . this blog is now an official Gang of Six™ Publication.


A Quick & Dirty Guide to Haring

In a previous entry I mentioned an ongoing hash-l discussion about haring. It’s still going on, but, thanks to the usual asshole, has degenerated into a live haring versus dead haring debate.

I feel like I just announced to the world that I’m [...]


The Joys of Haring

You know where you’re going. You decide whether the pack will have fun or not. If you do it right you won’t get caught.

I hared October’s PISS Hash and about this time tomorrow will hare November’s too. Yeah, it’s great when other hashers volunteer to hare, but I don’t mind haring myself because [...]
