A Better Ending to HBO’s Game of Thrones. Part 1.

Game of Thrones ended in epic failure last night. There’s not much else to say. I can’t even go into the minutiae of every little failure of this episode and of this season. We all saw it first hand. Instead, I’m going to off the top of my head outline a better way to end ...

Cringe Trigger Warning: This story made me cringe up and down. I suppose that’s fitting since it is from Sub-Reddit r/sadcringe. Imagine becoming so obsessed with an attractive twitch streamer. (And she is a knockout, no denying it) That you over time donate 13k to her and an incredible amount of your time, in hopes ...

Wet the Beak Part II, Salad and the Main Course.

Yesterday was just a little College Football appetizer. Today’s games are the salad course. Then on Saturday, we get the meal we’ve been waiting to feast on since January.
