UFC 192 – Predictions

Hi everybody! Well, we had a good run of events taking place at a machine gun pace and then… they slowed down a little. Perhaps it’s for the best though. Don’t want to get the fans exhausted… Oh, who am I kidding? Give us more UFC, give us more!  A good solid card on paper with pretty much no down side.

Everything I Need to Know About Swearing I Learned in High School

Originally posted on Rebecca R. Vincent:
Writers and readers assume that words have meaning and value. The prevalence and nonchalant attitude surrounding profanity in western culture might have us believe that using hardy vocabulary is appropriate willy-nilly – after all, that’s how we live. But perhaps that is the best reason to pay the most attention to when and where and why we drop these… Continue reading Everything I Need to Know About Swearing I Learned in High School


All Time Favorite Soccer Players

Welcome back folks, Today I’ll share my all time favorite soccer players. This is not “The BEST of” list.

5 Topics That Put Me To Sleep

Welcome everyone, I’ll let you in on a secret. I’m somewhat insomniac. Which is a shame really, considering how much I love to sleep. It used to be far worse in the past (including going 48 hours without sleep on a pretty regular basis), but still, I don’t sleep as well as I’d like to. Work in progress. I guess this can partially be attributed to … Continue reading 5 Topics That Put Me To Sleep
