    What Happens If You Fall Into Liquid Nitrogen?

    Jumping into a pool of liquid nitrogen might sound like an awesome way to cool off when the, uh, mercury is rising, but it’s really a terrible idea that no one should ever attempt.

    Top 5 Crazy Ideas to Solve Our Trash Problem

    We love our convenience -- single-use plastic utensils, paper plates, disposable cups, plastic wrap, wrapping paper for presents, myriad types of plastic bags, etc. If there’s a way to create something to throw out after use, we’ll find it and run with it.

    Everyone criticizes plastic, but nobody remembers toilet paper: for it, we are destroying forests around the world

    Everyone criticizes plastic, but nobody remembers toilet paper: for it, we are destroying forests around the world

    Plastic is a huge problem: By 2050, there is expected to be more plastic than fish in the ocean. This shows the scale of the problem at hand. But it is not, by far, the only one and it seems that nobody talks about toilet paper anymore.

    The Spiders from Mars or How I'm Spending Time After Quarantine

    The Spiders from Mars or How I'm Spending Time After Quarantine

    When Governor Murphy gives the okay, I’m out of here. Straight down the turnpike and  straight towards the sky to fly off in a thirty foot rocket full of cheese wiz and French Champlain. Ritz crackers lull me to sleep as I ascend & drift off through our compromised atmosphere. I float weightless around my new home as I journey on past the Moon past Venus to our first destination Mercury.

    Top 5 Moments from Star Wars

    Top 5 Moments from Star Wars

    When we think of movie franchises, it is hard to ignore Star Wars. From the time the first film graced our screens in 1977, the space opera saga has grown into the second highest grossing franchise of all time, beating out the likes of Harry Potter and James Bond, which house some of the most iconic films the world of cinema has seen in recent years. This alone should speak volumes of how successful this franchise has grown - and now, even after 9 full feature films, 2 anthology films, eight animated TV series', and a brand new live action series, it doesn't show any signs of slowing down. Admittedly, Star Wars has had its fair share of problems in the recent past and while the future looks rather uncertain for how it will be proceeding, nobody can deny its rightful place as one of the most influential film franchises to ever exist.

Practicing social distancing and quarantining to keep others safe is extremely important, I want to make that clear.
