No, we don’t have a fertility crisis in the US.

Illegally uploaded movies on YouTube aren’t being blocked as often as they once were.

Twenty-five years of “Raising Arizona”, one of my all-time favorite movies.

Why Title IX is still needed. Did you know that you can still get fired for being pregnant? That’s one reason why.

RIP, Edith Houghton, one of baseball’s pioneers.

Help make Molly an astronaut.

Do you not want fries with that?

I like to think that I drink my water on television in a more smooth and professional manner than Sen. Marco Rubio does.

News flash: Terrestrial radio sucks. You already knew that, right?

I really have no idea why the modern conservative movement has such problems connecting with women. It’s a mystery, I tell you.

“Basically, a fake starship captain just sent a tweet to a real-life space station engineer, who replied using the language of the fake starship captain … and all of us got to see it.” My God, I love living in the future.

Hard to say who’s dumber, Ben Shapiro or the idiots who believed him.

Why there were all those dashboard cameras on Russian cars to capture the meteorite footage.
