All things related to Valentine’s Day are annoying to me. I can’t stand pink, or red, or the combination of the two tied in a bow around a giant fluffy teddy bear that no one will be buying me. I hate the hype around it, who cares if you are in love on Valentines? Shouldn’t you be in love all year...

“We were open about it because we know the euthanasia was the right thing to do, if we’re serious about science, we can’t be led by emotion,” said by Bengt Holst, Copenhagen zoo’z scientific director. I can’t even pretend I know the scientific reasoning behind capturing and breeding animals...

Can we please stop coddling celebrities when they act up? After this latest Justin Bieber scandal, two times for this brat, I have reached my breaking point with young celebrities acting like they can get away with everything. When Lindsay Lohan was acting out, we placed the blame on her mother. When...

Everyone is familiar with all the drinking games you are supposed to be playing in college, or out of college depending on how much you enjoy drinking.

Everywhere you look these days, people have their heads down, and are not paying attention because their entire life is invested in a tiny box called a smartphone.

As a woman, I enjoy football immensely. I love that 300 plus pound men are running at each other, ready to take someone’s head off in a display of intense masculinity and competitiveness. That is what football is all about. When I first heard about Jonathan Martins desperate plea for help from the...

October 17, 2013

When I picture fall, I always see the same things; sweaters, boots, scarves, orange, red and brown crunchy leaf floors to walk on, chilly temperatures, and lots and lots of apple and pumpkin picking.

Peter Pan, a beloved Disney character, is a creepy sinister pedophile.
