The Donald Sterling fiasco came fast, was dealt with quickly, and will most likely evaporate with the same fervor. I think Bomani Jones really nailed it when he talked about how this is more or less a non-issue that came at the right time and had the scandal that new outlets could run with (I […]

On Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014, the Supreme Court upheld the right for Michigan to abstain from taking racial preference into consideration when admitting students to public universities. Every year, around the time when students find out whether they did or didn’t get into the colleges they applied to, this comes up. Primarily, it is black […]

baking soda does all the stuff it does because

I ran into an issue. I drink about 4 cups of coffee a day, drink a lot of diet coke, and will occasionally indulge in the celebratory cigar. As a result, after 20-odd years of life, my teeth have begun to lose their pearly luster (EGADS!). I’m not to the maggot-yellow meth addict level yet, […]

7 types of people at the gym felix exi

This post was sponsored by AFX Socks. They sell great socks. I have 2 pair. The socks they sell have little toe sockets. I don’t know if that’s the official jargon, but that’s what they are. These are great because then your toes don’t rub together, freeing you from the oppressive reign of toe-blisters. If […]

Spring Breaks You Didn’t Think of by TERNPRO

spring breaks you didn't think of by ternpro

I love to travel. I also love not spending thousands of dollars and days on a plane, flying to some exotic locale. So what I’m left with is my own country, and its not a bad one.

Pancakes vs Waffles

  Sometimes men need to discuss things. Important things like “why is this better than that” or “which of these two fictional characters would win in a fight?”. That’s what Paul and Blake do.

The Hidden Sights That Prove We're Real

I’ve always believed that looking at a posed photograph and seeing one’s unprepared facet in the mirror is a treat. It is a slice of intimacy and vulnerability, the complete opposite of what they wanted and, because of that, more real than they would usually be. Although their backside of their elbow and ribcage doesn’t […]

Why We Burn Couches – Thoughts by a Michigan State Grad In April of 2008 I was eighteen years old and a freshman at Michigan State University. The movie 300 hadn’t been out for more than a year and a half and seemed to constantly be playing in every dorm room. That movie resonated with […]
