Something is Not Right

I think I have said it before but I am saying it again in light of recent events. I am all for gun ownership. People should be allowed to own personal handguns and hunting rifles providing they are properly educated … Continue reading

Who Wants to Live Forever?

I recently heard on the radio and saw some news articles online about scientists looking into prolonging life long past currently held records. Having people live to 150 or perhaps longer will no longer be stuff of science fiction. I … Continue reading

I Hate Politics

This presidential race reminds me a lot of the South Park episode that featured an election between a douche and a turd sandwich. You can’t win.

Why is This a Big Deal?

Taylor Swift was apparently spotted snogging Tom Hiddleston. Why is this considered newsworthy? People go in and out of relationships, it’s what humans do. Celebrities need nookie too you know.
