March 15, 2018

During the school year, students must have some type of pencil. After all, they are the main tool during school. But there is one thing that completes a pencil, and that is the eraser. For some reason, many newer pencils are equipped with much more downsized erasers than the slightly older models. It...

Graffiti has been around for a long time. Think back to before there were any cities or even buildings to draw on. Think back to the Stone Age, where cavemen would paint and scratch at cave walls to create images. What other purpose could these pictures have served other than a way to convey emotion an...

The Collapse of the Modern DC Movie

March 10, 2018

Growing up, I thought Marvel superheros were lame, so I looked to DC to see superheros I enjoyed. And growing up with amazing movies like the original Superman movies, the “Dark Knight,” and “V for Vendetta,” I thought DC was the coolest thing in the world. Now, when I watch these new movies, ...

When eating your food, you use utensils, but not always the right one. You have forks and you have spoons; some foods can be eaten with both, others can only be eaten with one. A simpler solution is just using them both. We know it as the best invention to mankind: the spork. The spork is a mix betwe...

For years, some all-star games have been an entertaining spectacle. But for certain sports, all-star games have been taking a different direction and descending in viewership.
