A little less credulous is Paul Seaburn’s ravings concerning A Live Flying Gargoyle Reported In Puerto Rico raising all kinds of holy hell on the even of hurricane season. Looks like a job for David Xanatos. For those of you who aren’t nineties kids, perhaps Tim Binnall can win you over with a clipping of an Odd […]

Congressmen referenced Facebook over 14,000 times, Google almost 6,000 times, and Apple over 2,200 times.  But there’s a clear disconnect — many congressmen are over 80 years old and only 16 members of Congress have a background in software or engineering. All children learn that if you don’t […]

It’s the same system that powered Hawaii to the Sugar Bowl in 2007 under former head coach June Jones. The offensive philosophy is known for getting receivers open by allowing them […]
