Holy Marty McFly! The Time Traveler From 2485 Returns With More Predictions!

One of the most popular columns I’ve ever written was a fun whirl through the predictions of an alleged time traveler from the year 2485. Since it was published last fall, it’s been read by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Every day, it gets hundreds, sometimes thousands, of views. When I first wrote it, I had no idea it was going to be so popular. I was just fascinated and amused by this person claiming to be from the future, putting predictions out there on the Internet. If I had known it was going to be so popular, I probably would’ve included a plug for one of my... Read More

If You're Single And Looking For Company, Make Sure To Check Your Spam Folder

Spam. We all have to deal with it some time or another. No, this isn’t one of those patronizing Pocket articles trying to glamorize millenials being broke af and trying to polish that turd into a NEW LIFESTYLE CHOICE (see: TINY HOUSES! THRIFT STORES ARE BACK! UNCONVENTIONAL WEDDING RINGS! etc.), this is about the type of spam that gets served up into your email, which is often spicier than the canned food item of dubious vintage and even more full of crap than the articles on Pocket. I get hundreds of emails every day, and so, every couple of days, I have to look through my Spam folder to... Read More

With All The Problems In The World Today, I Think It's Time We Asked, Can Zombies Swim?

Whenever I watch a zombie movie, I always imagine different ways that I could escape zombies if I ever found myself in that situation. I’m sure you can all relate. C’mon now, admit it. When you’re watching a horror movie, you wonder how you’d do if you were in that situation. Could you get away from that werewolf? Would you make better decisions fleeing from that vampire? Would you decide that maybe it wasn’t a good idea to have sex in the woods with that cute summer camp counselor after all those other campers were found massacred by the guy in the hockey mask? And when... Read More
