Posted by on January 29th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

When I was young teenager, my house burned down. It gutted us. All of our belongings, if not melted were so smoke damaged that they were nearly irretrievable.

Posted by on January 6th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

If you’ve known how to swim for a long while it can be hard to remember what it was like when you first learned. For a little kid, even fully armored up like the Stay Puf’t Marshmallow Man with weird-feeling floaties, the giant bathtub that a pool is can be ominous. Being told that they’re […]

So, this video is super specially especially amazing to me. It’s not okay to beat your kid… unless you’re harmlessly dropping mad beats like this dad. […]

Posted by on December 17th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY
