Dr Clifton W. Potter Jr, UL History Professor~

South Korea has begun to complete emergency live-fire testing exercises to prepare its people for a possible nuclear strike from their northern counterpart. China has even Read More


Tally After Tally

Sarah Irby, Editor in Chief~

Have you ever lied about your body count? No, I don’t mean the number of people you’ve killed (obviously), but rather the number of people you’ve slept with.

For some reason, people still concern themselves with this number when it comes to a potential partner. If your number is too high, you’re a whore; if your number is too low, Read More
