I gaze beyond the blazing bonfire at the blackest night-skies all around me. The air is heavy, hot and wet. I'm holding my breath, terrified. A woman lurches forward toward me, hands outstretched, teeth gnashing, eyes bulging, her skin a rich chocolate, glistening under beads of sweat. In a white, grubby, linen dress, her thick, woolly hair is secured by a scarf of the same fabric. Her body lurches with spasms and she begins to chant. I can't understand anything she's saying, it doesn't seem to make sense. Just as I am about to burst from a lack of oxygen, I wake ... Sitting bolt upright... Read More

Some schools prohibit kids from wearing gang colors. Others ban short skirts. Bandanas, beanies, sunglasses, baseball hats, wristbands and even certain jewelry have been prohibited from certain schools throughout the country.

For attending class at a Napa middle school wearing socks displaying the Winnie the Pooh character -- in violation of the school's solid-colors-only, no-pictures, no-logos dress code -- the seventh-grader was...

...And then it hit me; I've been spending my time shopping for a life I don't even have. My closet is full of close that I'll never be able to fit into; "But, when I loose those extra 10 Lb they'll look amazing on me!. I have dresses for parties I'm not gonna attend. Shoes for outfits I can't afford. My apartment is full of books I'll never read; "But, if I did, I'd certainly be the smartest and most literate person at the party!"- That I'm never gonna be invited to. Mainly, because I'm too busy working a job I don't even like, so I can afford the clothes I can't fit into, for the parties... Read More
You will often see illustrations of jolly Cetaceans jumping heroically out of the ocean waters with lasers and rainbows shooting out everywhere.

It is because of these common memes that people are unaware of the dark side of dolphin sociology. We ignore that these creatures practice murder and rape openly without social consequence. This is problematic to me because dolphins are considered to be the most emotionally... Read More

Fifteen of them. At a time when they should have been in school, kindergarten or first grade, learning the basics of language and math and fundamental social skills, these girls where soliciting Mr. Jacobson for sex.

"Tis the season to be jolly" or is it? The holidays are supposed to be a joyous time of year, filled with hope for the future and optimism for humanity. With movies like "Miracle on 34th St," "White Christmas," and "A Christmas Story" beaming holiday cheer into our houses and memories of childhood dreams during this time of year, many people aren't happy and feel more like Charlie Brown's "A Charlie Brown Christmas" (without the optimism) or George Bailey from "It's A Wonderful Life" (without the happy ending). Holiday Depression, better known as "the holiday blues," is real and it affects... Read More
