     Since philosophy’s beginnings, people have debated the nature of reality. From Descartes hypothesizing that a demon was using evil magics to fool his senses, to the ‘brain in a vat’ that is directly stimulated, to Zhuangzi wondering if he was a man dreaming he was a butterfly or a butterf...

Many experts have speculated if our existence is a reality or simply a mirage inside our mind. Steve Harvey among other notable scientists claim that we are all living inside of a Capri Sun, their evidence for this is that the moon is the opening for a straw hole. This would most directly explain glo...

As I was beginning to write this article, I realized that there is not just one classroom that is the best. They all have different parts to them that make them the best, so I cannot write about just one classroom. I have narrowed down the classes to four finalists, and each room has a different aspe...

I’m not going to lie. I felt a little bit like an FDA inspector going into these stores with a hidden agenda. It wasn’t all stealthy smooth, though. I either forgot my phone (for note-taking) or it died upon arrival at at least three stores. I found some tissues in clothes I tried. I even had a c...

The Nintendo Switch released about a year back now. My birthday is in the first week of April, and my parents got me one for it. As somebody who’s seen the Switch grow over the last ten or twelve months, it’s justified its purchase in unexpected ways. Nintendo’s releases for the Switch have all ...

As long as I have lived in Ames, Jimmy Johns has always been the place to go. When people want a sub, they don’t hesitate to drive to the nearest JJs they can think of without a single thought of possibly going to Subway. There is a recent addition to the sub sandwich restaurants that are in Ames, a...

     When I first heard of Blade Runner 2049, I was disappointed. Thirty-five years after a cult classic comes out, a big-budget sequel comes out, and Harrison Ford’s still going to be in it? As more details came out, with the director’s movie Sicario getting nigh-universal acclaim and my eternal man-crus...

Being a big Stranger Things fan, you already know I watched the second season in a day. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so let’s just say this season had me on an emot...
