Everyone has their preferred charity or cause they like to support, and mine is being 33.3% beer and batter by volume. Since eating and drinking are subjects very close to my cholesterol-choked heart, when I'm not busy planning a suicide Jackie Chan would be proud of, neglecting my family and friends, and being generally awful, I like to meet my weekly exercise quota by waving goodbye to the Domino's delivery guy.

One of the greatest challenges for me was finding productive and enjoyable ways to spend the copious amounts of leisure time in between classes, labs, part-time work, partying, party aftermath-related complete relocation of stomach contents to bathroom floor while praying for sweet release of death, clubs, sports, and campus activities.

For years the modern man has been fascinated by the dolphin's purported ability to have sex for pleasure.

Dictators rarely get good press. They're usually dismissed as madmen and delusional fools. This is probably a little unfair when you look at the facts. Sure you have to be a little ruthless and commit some inhumane acts to maintain the culture of fear and desperation that keeps you in power, but the positives outweigh the negatives, and it really is a mostly pleasant and charmed life.

The 1990's was a defining decade for movies. Special effects came on in leaps and bounds, Disney was in its golden age, and asshole Hollywood producers were yet to try and release every single film in 3D. From this fertile field sprouted some of the highest-grossing films of all time. And now the day has come to look back at some of these blockbusters and see what all the fuss was about. Read More »
Some of your professors may claim they don't watch TV except for The History Channel and PBS. To them I say "pssshhh!" My TV has been on continuously since 1993 and, if there are reruns on the major networks, it's tuned to Comedy Central or Adult Swim. So a new TV season makes this my favorite time of year.

1. Live in two cities.
Although it can seem daunting to have to pay for two houses, it is crucial that on the back flap of your book, it says that you live in New York City and ___________ (choose a second, usually more rural location). Do not underestimate the importance of having two homes to being a writer, despite seeming to have nothing to do with telling a story. Do not ask why—go and do. Read More »

Just to be clear, these listed items aren't bizarre in and of themselves, but it's fair to assume that adding them to the list of deep-fried foods is far from... normal. Read More »
