I assumed Trump was running for publicity purposes that he’d last a bit, then drop out after he’d received the press he wanted. After all, there is some cachet in being a candidate for the...

When it comes to Ready Player One, I have to admit that doesn’t take me long to start picturing how the Oasis would be used in our reality. And yes, my conclusion was that it would be mostly about...

I've seen them flying, so I don't doubt their ability to do so. It's just the times I've seen them, they are really working hard and flapping those wings. They seem to have to work harder at flying...

You have a point, ganz. Too often the approach to teaching history in this country is the teacher hands the students bundles of tree branches. Since the students never see the whole tree, never mind...

BoKu, your post makes me think of a GK Chesteron quote that really does seem to describe the GOP.

I saw Ready Player One today. I didn't like the book, so I didn't have high expectations for the movie. I was in it mostly for the visuals. Sometimes it's worth going to the movies just for the...

The duck probably managed to fly up there. Ducks can fly, though not as easily as other birds. Whenever I see a duck or any form of waterfowl flying, they’re always really putting a lot of effort...
