What do you think the “Wait, smoking is bad for you!?” revelation of our generation will be? In order:1. “Wait, alcohol is actually a dangerous, mind-altering narcotic that can cause you to do so...


Have a weekly Zoom chat OR have a discussion board. Don’t have both. Actually, just get rid of the discussion board altogether. Because literally every single one of them boils down to this: H...


Before I go on: This is a post about people on Facebook being stupid. I know, that’s a phenomenon that shouldn’t surprise me anymore, and it doesn’t. I’m more surprised by just how stupid people ...


I got my taxes “done” today. In quotes, because apparently, if you qualify for the actually-free TurboTax version (and I did, since I made less than $30,000 last year), they won’t let you access...


Media Edition, Part 3 What movie do you absolutely refuse to watch and why? The Emoji Movie, because I am neither drunk, stupid, or five years old. Who’s one celebrity you don’t understand the hy...


The COC was received and processed by the BMV, and my license is valid again. I spoke with a representative and told them I’d never received any notification about any of this. They say they se...


I got a call from my boss at my second job, telling me that a recent background check told him my license had been suspended. This was news to me, so I went to my state’s BMV page and looked it ...

Namely… I am really upset that “What You Waiting For,” “Gonna Make You Sweat,” and “Pump Up the Jams” aren’t in Unlimited. I mean, I’m sure it’s due to licensing issues, and Ubisoft is working ...

Look at this. This is an almost-finished remaster of Goldeneye 007, one of my all-time favorite games. It was set to come out in the mid to late 2000s, on both Xbox and Wii. It is beautiful. ...


Yup. The house survey. This thing is like glitter: It’s just.... everywhere. I’m going to find questions from this thing hiding under my desk when I move out, I swear. General What kind of h...

Lighten Up in The Real Pretend Mulling
