Tim Bayer, Webmaster, and Assistant Editor of Weekly Hubris, was born and brought up in Webster, New York. He attended St. Bonaventure University, earning a BS in Computer Science, and then worked in the hi-tech world. In 2002 he turned his creative energies to product development and video production with the release of his first independently produced products. When the demand for web site design (TBayer.com) and freelance writing increased, he once again switched skill sets . . . to writing and web work. An avid or, to be more accurate, rabid, disc golfer, he may often be found chasing plastic while in pursuit of the perfect round on a disc golf course, or designing and developing disc golf products for Demogrid.com. He says he “tries to find the humor hidden in everyday experiences, because life is too important to be taken seriously.” (Author photo by Tim Bayer)

Drunk: Under the Trees & Under the Influence

Won Over By Reality By Tim Bayer BRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—4/20/2015—The fermentation process we humans utilize to create beer, hard liquor, and other alcoholic beverages can also occur (naturally) when fruits are left on the ground. Animals and birds consuming this aging fruit, with its high alcohol content, can become intoxicated. The video I offer […]

A Car Jumping (Retold)

Won Over By Reality By Tim Bayer BRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—2/2/2015—It looked like a road rage incident—a lunatic jumping up and down on the roof of a car—but it wasn’t exactly road rage, and the man atop the roof wasn’t (well, precisely) a lunatic. It was, rather, I—mightily provoked. In 1992, I worked in the town […]
