    More People Should be Eating Ramen with Kraft Singles

    Imagine this. You're an American kid in the mid-2000's, halfway through your second grade year. You were looking forward to a weekend of scooter-ing around your local cul-de-sac but tragically, a cold has left you bedridden and woebegone. You stare out your bedroom window, longing to join your neighbors outside. But alas! You have a headache, a slight fever and a sore throat. You may as well be dead.

    Unpopular Opinion: The Best Tea in the World

    Unpopular Opinion: The Best Tea in the World

    There are many different ways to make a cup of tea. What on the surface looks like a simple set of instructions has spawned a plethora of different styles and preferences. You can have whole milk, skimmed milk, oat milk, no milk, 1 sugar, 2 sugars, 100 sugars, or none, and so much more. Indeed many people have many differing tastes when it comes to preparing tea, but there is one particular method, unlike the others, that is universally frowned upon. It is considered taboo, a strict no-no. This method would only be found in the forbidden section of the Hogwarts library.

    Cake Does Not Take the Cake

    Cake Does Not Take the Cake

    Many people for many centuries have enjoyed the sweet "treat" that English speakers refer to as "cake". I un-popularly believe that this dessert is in fact rubbish. Now when I say cake, I do refer to cake as in the general term for all sweet pastries and deserts, nor do I refer the relatively modern definition of cake (having junk in thine trunk). The cake I have in mind is specifically the common, bland, dry, disc of flavourless airy nothing that people atop with candles to celebrate birthdays. They come in many varieties, some of which are more bearable than others, but all generally sharing the fact that they are inferior to almost any other choice of sweet.
