Grayson was recently sent home with his latest spelling test. For the test, he was required to use each word in a sentence. Without being instructed, Grayson used this as an opportunity to write a 6-sentence story that is commendable for both its continuity and its profound grasp of scatological humor.
Even better than his sentences, though, is the excuse he gave his teacher for his choice of topics.
Honestly I have no idea. The kid spends his chore money on things like visual encyclopedias of human anatomy and chooses science documentaries over cartoons. The things he comes up with are constantly surprising me.
There’s no better way for a new student organization to make a splash on campus than to make a video that shows their own student body’s incompetence, and then watch it go viral for the whole world to see.
That’s what a new non-partisan political organization called PoliTech did on the campus of Texas Tech University, asking fellow students to answer simple questions about U.S. history, current affairs, and — of course — pop culture.
You can probably guess how well most students did in each category…
Of course, the video has created enormous controversy on campus at Texas Tech. People like political science professor Mark McKenzie say it represents a typical student. Others, especially students, are outraged at the potential impact the video could have on Texas Tech’s reputation.
Megan Rothbauer should be able to consider herself lucky — one year ago at age 29, she had a heart attack that left her in a coma and almost took her life.
And she does feel lucky she’s alive, but unfortunately there’s a downside no one would have predicted. Despite being fully insured, she’s now $50,000 in medical debt and instead of being able to simply celebrate that she’s alive, she’s worried about bankruptcy and having to put off her impending engagement.
When Megan had her heart attack, she was left unconscious and taken by an ambulance to St. Mary’s Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin. Unfortunately for her, St. Mary’s is out of her insurance network. What’s worse is that Meriter Hospital, an in-network hospital with a maximum co-pay of only $1500, is three blocks away from St. Mary’s.
Now, author Adam Mansbach is back with another “kids” book that you can never — never — read to your kids. This one is called You Have to F***ing Eat, and this time around he enlisted Bryan Cranston to read the hilarious bedtime story…
(Yes, it is explicit and wonderfully inappropriate. Please don’t click play if this is going to offend you.)
Last weekend pastor and musician Chris Picco’s life fell apart — shockingly, and unspeakably fell apart.
On November 8th, his wife Ashley unexpectedly passed away in her sleep. She was pregnant. Doctors rescued the baby with an emergency C-section, but at 24 weeks and with such a traumatic birth, he struggled. On November 11th, he passed away, too.
This is almost too much to even write or read a simple paragraph about…and Chris is living it.
Ernst Berlin wanted to make his wife’s first birthday with their new baby really special; so he turned to Reddit Gets Drawn, where artists of a variety of styles will interpret your photographs for you. He commissioned 24 artists to draw portraits of their adorable 8-month-old son Jacob.
