Boy… and We Thought Schools Were Strict in Our Day

My friends and I used to get a kick out of passing notes, throwing spitballs, and crafting masterful paper airplanes to sail at the back of the teacher’s head. Worst case scenario, we missed a recess if we got caught, but it was oh so worthwhile. In the age of school shootings and stabbings and […]

Oh, I'm Thankful

Well children, it’s that time of the year where you sit at a long banquet table with relatives you know about as well as the guy who washed your windshield at the Chevron last Tuesday and you spout contrived, cliche’ bullshit about what it is you are supposed to be thankful for.  Great!!!

Meteor (Aliens) Crash Down Over Edmonton, Canada

Uhhh… did no one here see War of the Worlds? Isn’t that sort of how it starts in that movie too? Ok that first bit was mostly sarcastic, but if you are interested in this kind of stuff, and the increasing trend recently of “lights in the sky” sightings has you intrigued, Google for “2012” […]
