  1. Be Strong! Be Woman!

    I was looking up music videos on YouTube when this ad played before one of the songs, and normally I just skip the ads, but as I was waiting for the skip ad countdown, I actually got intrigued by the ad and continued to watching it. It was quite interesting and sends a powerful message I think.

    It started out by asking young women (in their 20s) a guy, and a boy about maybe 12 or so to do things like a girl. Throw like a girl, run like a girl, fight like a girl etc.. and they would

  2. The Problem With Domesticated Sankes

    Both my corn snake and the king snake I used to have would go through periodic phases where they just wouldn't eat, there are a lot of natural things which can sometimes cause a snake not to eat. If a snake is nearing its shed time they won't eat, sometimes during their mating season they won't eat, and in the winter it is natural for snakes to hibernate, so even if they are kept in a temperature regulated environment sometimes in the winter they will not eat as much. But my corn snake seems a ...

  5. Dear Society,

    Just a bit of fun

    Dear Society,

    Please,
    you really must stop knocking upon the door,
    you know I will not answer any more,
    and if you attempt to ring the bell one more time,
    I will disconnect it all.
    I don't want your pamphlets,
    or even your insinuating advice
    on how to live a better life
    according to the status quo
    which you have set.

    Now I insist
    you must stop tying to
