While it became the face of sci-fi horror across three movies, nothing will beat his first appearance—I mean there’s nothing like implanting an egg in a human and then exploding viciously out of his stomach to signal your presence 9) Calvin Candie—yes, I know it’s Leo, but c’mon, the … Continue reading Top 10 Movie Villains
I’m a self-deprecating type 1 diabetic, so I joke around about it often. It’s a good way to make a tough situation better, at least in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong — it’s a serious disease; however, to be serious about the situation all the time would probably result in premature gray hair. There are some things that burn me though… If you ask … Continue reading What Not to Say to Diabetics
Our campus has recently seen an influx of the mysterious skateboard-like Segway called the IO Hawk, most notably in the hands of our football players but not limited to them exclusively.

After living … Continue reading The Flat Top Experience
