Maximum Offended Mexicans!

At the beginning of October 2015, Clemson University in South Carolina, hosted a Mexican cuisine event in their premises called Maximum Mexican. The event, which included such non-representative elements of Mexico such as sombreros and tacos, was meant to please the students of the university, who happen to like, wait for it…. Mexican food. Our research team has been unable to confirm the rumors that Mexican decorations, Mexican music, or Mexican flags might have been present too. This obviously was an attack on real Mexican culture. Probably the most egregious offense was the fact that the people organizing the event made small talk...

Missing the Juicy Se...

The Obama administration has had its share of scandals including the Veteran’s Health Administration mess and the IRS and Secret Service misdeeds to name a few. But these were all rather boring. Not in the same league as Clinton’s “zippergate.” We all love a good sex scandal but we haven’t...

A small boy in Southern United Kingdom was invited to a birthday party at the Plymouth Sky Slope and Snowboard Center, which he missed because he preferred to spend the day with his grandparents instead.

How Companies Trick You Into Buying Stuff

We all know that companies want you to buy their stuff, even if you don’t need it.  We have learned to mistrust them, which is why corporations have changed their standards and become more ethical in their advertising, in order to adapt to the integrity that customers demand. Just kidding, they know you don’t want to buy their stuff, so they have to fool you into buying it by mistake. Here are a few examples. 1. Offering “Free” subscriptions that you have to pay later. This one is popular among online services. For example, you are offered a “free” package that includes access to certain video game...

Lessons from the Jessi Slaughter Case

At first glance, the Jessi Slaughter case is serious, but not very complex. It’s the case of a little girl who was the target of cyberbullies who exposed her personal information, including her address and her phone number, resulting in pranks and other forms of harassment. However, in my ever-so-humble opinion, it has some connotations that go beyond the case that teach some lessons that we would be wise to learn. There are many blogs and posts about the case, so I’ll try to be brief about it. When she was 10, Jessi Slaughter, whose real name is Jessica Leonhardt posted some inflammatory comments on social media where, among...

How to Counter the Techniques of Car Salesmen

Today’s stereotype of the car salesman is not very different from the image we have from the snake oil man from the Wild West. However, there is a reason for this. Both of them are trying to sell you all the extras they can at the highest price they can. To be honest, it’s not only car salesmen that do this. Every salesperson from every industry is trying to do the same and they use these and other techniques. However, since we’re talking about your money, you should know how to counter them and to put you in a better negotiating position. 1. The Fake Call You see, for any given product, there are people who are willing to...

Here’s a piece of advice for young, aspiring writers: if you can’t think of something to write about, write about sex. With a few exceptions, sex (or the lack thereof) is something everybody knows by instinct. Plus, it’s a rather new topic that almost nobody has written...

I Hugged a Stranger ...

I hugged by a total stranger today and it felt…alright. We grow up being warned not to talk to strangers. So we don’t. Then we raise our children not talk strangers. Hopefully, they listen. But is this the best advice? Yes, sadly it is and I’m passing to my grandchildren. DO NOT TALK TO...

A Gamer’s Guide to Starting Your Own Religio...

Are you bored with nothing to do? Would you like to increase your income in your free time? Do you find that you don’t get enough worshiping? Are you more cynical than happy? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have the solution for you: founding your own religion. Founding your own religion is easier than you think. All it takes is pen and paper, a few loyal friends or relatives (it helps if they are willing to do anything for money), a 20-sided die, a 10-sided die and a complete lack of scruples. 1.- Choose your congregation People who start religions often forget this step, but you must not.
