The Daily Word in Captain Cook, Anteaters and Martian Colonies

By Monica Schmitt [ Tue May 3 2016 12:18 PM ]
The Daily Word

Ahoy! The famous Lord Sandwich, lost in the 18th century, is found!

A new world record for the 100 meter dash is set. By a 100 year old woman. Best way to celebrate? Push-ups. This lady is not to be messed with.

We all know that Beyonce's a badass but she isn't the only VIP in her new album. Her music video is comprised of an impressive and talented group of artists.

This little anteater did not just smoke a bowl. Leave him alone.

A significant percentage of antibiotics prescribed in the U.S. are given to patients who—get this—don't have bacterial infections. Drugs are great, but only when they actually work. Continuing to misuse such a powerful resource is resulting in a scary high amount of drug-resistant bugs.

In two years time Mars will say hello to an unmanned spacecraft called Dragon. The first step to Mr. Musk's ambitious goal of colonizing the planet? Only time will tell.

Mutation gene found in Labrador retrievers reveals that they are more inclined to crave food than other breeds.

Despite what Alanis Morissette tries to tell you, “rain on your wedding day” does not constitute irony. It also doesn't have to be a bad thing in the first place.

Dream Blog #360

By Megan Reneau [ Mon Apr 25 2016 4:06 PM ]

My dog Igloo and I launch into space from the front pasture at my parents' house. It's nighttime, and the sky is a dark blue with the lights of the Milky Way dotted across the expanse. Actually, it's less of a launch and more of a jump. After we pass the atmosphere, I can't tell how much progress we're making because there's barely a breeze. It's black around us scattered with distant stars, but I still see the glow of the Earth creeping up from behind us.

I look at Igloo and pet his head. I look down at the Earth—round and innocent—and it's slowly drifting away. I notice a red string tied to my ankle and his ankle that go all the way back down to somewhere on the surface of our planet. I look up toward Mars, far in the distance, and then back to Iggy. He rolls over so I can rub his belly while we travel.

I wake up.

So a cop got basically no punishment for following an unarmed man and shooting him dead.

Could this simple solution really help end sexual assault on American campuses?

Bernie Bros come in all sizes and varieties. Fantastic.

Animals don't give a fuck about you and your nonsense.

In a survey of over 1,000 people, researchers were able to confirm something everyone already knew. What a good way to spend time and money.

Have you ever been so infatuated with someone that you didn't notice a crime happening right in front of you?

“I’m 28. I make $4 million a year. What do you do?” yells the man-child douche-bag, David Brackett.

Some horrible young men in town have been caught exploiting teen girls.

By Amelia Olson [ Fri Apr 10 2015 10:26 AM ]

It's Friday and I'm kind of crabby and kind of excited for the lunch I packed. News is kind of good and kind of horribly depressing.

Live your life!
