    Don't ask John Kerry questions...or else!

    being a person whos been tazed by a personal device on a bet, i can tell you 2 things about it- it is intensely painful, and would any battle pretty quickly. what bugs me here is how people jump right onto excessive force and "brutality". yeah, they probably didn't need to taze the guy, but...

    this may sound like a joke but im quite serious in all of this. Jehovah's witnesses come around my house about once a month, because there are 3 churches or whatever they call them nearby. i got sick of them one day so i opened the door and used their persistence against them. i asked them if...

    Anyone take the ACT?

    i did a 30 overall, and bombed on math, i think i brought in a 21 or 22, not sure its been a few years. the poor math is just a reflection of your thinking style. you're probably more creative and emotional than most people. if you do poorly on your math on the real ACT, colleges will look at...

    what if i feed this to a venus flytrap?

    lets not kill him just yet! but in any case, feeding VFTs is a bit of a dilemma. if they grow in your house, its unlikely that they will ever catch anything on their own. but when we try to feed them, more often then not we do more harm then good. so here is what i do. when i want to feed my...
