This article was viewed 1,588 times

North Korea is a joke. A particularly malnourished one as it were. I mean who else, on the planet Earth, would not only welcome Dennis Rodman into their country but actually touch Dennis Rodman?

Rand Paul Returns Money To Treasury, Remains Great At Getting Publicity

This article was viewed 762 times

Just as last year and in what amounts to largely just free publicity, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul mocked up one of those big ol’ lottery style checks which he’ll send to the Treasury. A check for his office’s surplus operating budget. Last year he returned $500,000, also on a steroid injected check, and this year’s surplus came to $600,000, […]

On The Distrust Of Government

This article was viewed 1,504 times

For better or worse Americans continue to not trust politicians and the government very much. Perhaps because some of the sleeping have awoken and started to pay a thimble’s worth of attention. Perhaps because a poor economy naturally leads to distrust. Perhaps because we’re on the verge of some sort of political revolution (unlikely, but think more […]

The video, uploaded by North Korea’s official website, Uriminzokkiri, starts with a (hungry) North Korean sleeping. In the foreground sits a DSLR […]

Shortly after the Browns left Cleveland and shortly before Ray Lewis was arrested on a murder charge, the Ravens linebacker notched his first sack.

Caleb Moore Dies From Injuries Sustained At X Games

This article was viewed 951 times

This was supposed to be an article about how much I loathe the X Games. About the deep seated disdain of the unironic mountain hipsters who flock to Aspen for their devastatingly expensive/inevitably mediocre views of the action.
