6 (More) Things You Really Need to Know Before Joining the Military

6 (More) Things You Really Need to Know Before Joining the Military

Ever since I published the original article (which you can find here), I’ve received several emails from people who are looking to join up, asking question after question. Most of them have been very positive responses from people who are simply looking for information, because they’re tired of the side-stepping answers that their recruiters are handing out to them. This is entirely understandable, and it’s the whole reason I wrote that original article in the first place. This is a major life decision and you deserve to know exactly what you’re getting into before you make the plunge.

6 Reasons Why You Should Never Bring a Baby into a Movie Theater

Let’s face it. We’ve all been in a movie with at least one crying baby at some point in our lives. Just think back and picture the situation: it’s opening night for one of the biggest blockbusters of the summer. There’s going to be explosions, lots of action, big named actors, plenty of special effects, and, depending on your luck, a brain dead couple who decided it would be perfectly reasonable to bring their 3 month old newborn with them to see this much hyped and talked about movie. Maybe 30 minutes goes by without so much as a peep (maybe you don’t even realize there’s a baby in the theater yet), but then, after a few loud shouts from the speakers, probably during one of the action scenes, you hear the annoying cries of a small, innocent baby echoing throughout the crowded room like nails against a chalkboard. Maybe you think, OK, that’s cool, it’s a war so there’s bound to be babies crying. Gee whiz, this director sure does know how to set the mood and make people uncomfortable, just like how it would be in a normal war!

But that’s where you’d be wrong.

Dead wrong.

Top Five Personalities that Bug the Unholy Shit Out of Me

Alright, let’s talk about something that I’ve been wanting to discuss for a while now: people who annoy the hell out of me. This list is just a sample of the things I find annoying, but they’re also worth discussing.

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff (Christ’s Childhood Friend) Review

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff (Christ’s Childhood Friend) is a book by Christopher Moore, a comedy writer  who has written several gems such as Fluke or I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings, The Stupidest Angel, and Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story. Lamb, like Moore’s other novels, is filled with one-liners, obscure cultural references, and the kind of satire that Vonnegut (one of Moore’s own influences) would be proud of.

What Ever Happened to Happy Science Fiction?

Anyone who goes to the movies or reads any science fiction is probably familiar with at least one dark scifi story. Whether or not your selection includes The Hunger Games, I Am Legend, or Ender’s Game is besides the point–you’ve been exposed to the genre, which means you’re, at the very least, partially familiar with modern science fiction. You’ve probably seen or read at least one really awesome story about one or two characters in space, a post-apocalyptic dystopia, or whatever. Then again, you’ve probably seen some bad scifi, too, but let’s not talk about those monstrosities.

Adventures in Cannibalism 2: Alexander “Sawney” Beane

Alexander “Sawney” Beane

“Sawney” was the son of a ditch-digger who decided he could probably do better. He wanted a life of riches and whatever else people back in the 1500s wanted (maybe more sheep?). He tried working with his old man, but after a while it just didn’t stick, so he left with his girlfriend for bigger and better things.

Digging ditches doesn’t impress the ladies like it used to.

Why John Carter Matters

For those of you who haven’t been paying a lot of attention to the upcoming movies this year or you’re not into really old science fiction novels, you may not be aware that John Carter is even a thing. You may not even care, but that’s why I’m writing this blog entry, to tell you that you should care, because history is important.
