U.S. Middle East intentions 3

In order to understand the United States’ position in the Middle East, you have to understand the history and the events that led to the current situation.

We took my sister out to her favourite club last night. It might just be the last club in the world that plays Motley Crew, Bon Jovi, Guns & Roses, AC/DC and Deep Purple. I’m not denying that other clubs play this music, but who’s really going to show up to head bang to 80′s ...

Naked man arrested for concealed weapon

I bet you had the same confused look on your face as I did when I saw this headline. My conclusion was that it could only mean one thing. But my curiousity still forced me to click the link to see it for myself. A man was arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon ...

2 days later, The $252.92 Idiot 2

I’m probably the biggest idiot I’ve ever met. On Sunday evening I came back from watching a movie with my little brother. I parked my car out front of my building on the street because I was supposed to meet up with a buddy shortly after and I wanted to avoid the parking garage to ...
