5 Ways Games Can Affect Your Social Life

Games have an effect on everyone, be it leading you to have an obsession with blocks because of a world famous indie-game. Or you crawl on your hands and knees avoiding your boss, preparing to rid the earth of Metal Gear. Games have affected me, they’ve shaped me to be a socially unacceptable individual with little to no prospects in life.

End-Of-Life Counseling For America

That President Obama ROCKS! I know, right? I mean, we need to re-elect that dude right away, if for no other reason than his awesome health care reforms… he’s a man with a plan for our country. An end-of-life plan….

Vive La Deference! (Or More Moaning, With Respect)

Firstly, I would like to get something straight here and now before I continue…I have nothing against the French; I made the choice to live here after all. I have nothing against the lovely people or indeed the language (apart from my lack of capability to comprehend it). I do, however, have some problems with a few irregularities of the French system or the way they go about things and would like to go into more detail. However, as this is an article and not a large book, I won’t. Instead my intention here is to point out, in a light-hearted manner of course, some rather mystifying observations that have come to my attention since crossing the English Channel in a southerly direction some years ago.

Wildlife in Big D

Our middle-class neighborhood borders on the green belt surrounding White Rock Lake. The houses, mostly constructed of brick with wooden shake roofs, are surrounded by trees of every type – pecan, oak, maple – and regularly attract denizens of the forest to gardens, backyards and alleys. Armadillos, rabbits, possums and raccoons are frequent visitors; now and then we see a coyote or two patrolling their territory, hoping to catch a stray cat or small dog for a meal.

How to Not Be a Jerk at Concerts

Since I was twelve years old, all I ever wanted to do was go see live music. I’d legitimately lay in bed at night and worry that- without a license, money and friends that liked the same music as me- I’d never be able to see any of the bands I loved, and would lead a miserable unfulfilled life. Well, that didn’t happen, and in the last 12 years I’ve gone to more concerts than I can even remember. And since my move to New York City over a year ago, my average is at an all-time high. With hundreds of shows under my 24-year-old belt, I’ve seen a lot of good and I’ve seen a lot of bad. Read on to find out how you can avoid falling into the latter category…

Eat Your Vegetables – Or ELSE!

“Your pet carrot will live,” the doctor said, “but it’s going to be a vegetable for the rest of its life.” Maybe you’ve heard that old joke, and you’ve probably heard the old expression “You are what you eat.” Synthesize these two, and add the recent brainless activity of a guv’mint school lunch inspector, and you see how serious our dear leaders are about eating vegetables….

Where to Get Custom Cardboard Cutouts

Cardboard cutouts of celebrities, action figures and television and movie characters have been available for about 25 years.

Man Law – An Analysis of the Saying ‘Bros Before Hoes’

Bros before Hoes is the basis of Bro Code, the ultimate in man law, where the others are garnered. Regardless of the cutesy rhyme scheme, there is a valid system of ethics that guides a man on his journey for personal development.

The Zombie Apocalypse Is Here!

Most people assume that being prepared for a zombie apocalypse is a waste of time. But, if you’ve been keeping track of the constant hype involving biological warfare; then you’ve realized that it is very possible to be hunting human brains and relatively soon.

Again, With The Occupation?

Are you overcome with a feeling of deja vu, all over again? If you’re like me (and I know I am), you might be. Just four short years ago, in 2008, some giants from New York won an epic contest over some patriots, despite the fact the patriots were favored. And it’s, like, happening again….

Help! My Printer Has a Poltergeist!

I think my printer is haunted. To fully appreciate the magnitude of this trauma, you need to understand that “The Fiend” went rogue only 10 weeks after I purchased it…
