Happy Thanksgiving 2014

By +Brad Naylor

Finally after 4 previous Thanksgiving posts it's my turn. I am thankful that they didn't give this post to the new girl , and I don't mean Zooey Douchecanal. In other parts of the world, Thanksgiving (and it's variants) is about celebrating the harvest and giving thanks for the blessings of the year, yet in America the focus is on food (including beer), football and family in that order.

The Evolution of Absolution

By +Alexa Rankin

Since his papacy began in 2013, Pope Francis has been shaking up the Catholic Church by reviving old values, and accepting ideas traditionally ignored by previous pontiffs. Frankie the First has accepted (but does not condone) homosexuality, and has even given the idea of evolution the thumbs up since it can be integrated into the biblical version of creation, Now His Holiness is embracing technology by launching a new iPhone app for Catholics worldwide.

Minecraft Nazi strategy guide discovered

By +Brad Naylor

The game of Minecraft continues to take the world by storm with an estimated 20,000 new players every day, pushing the total number of registered users beyond 50 million. This makes the world of Minecraft a lucrative business indeed, but not without potential pitfalls. In recent months there have been an increasing number of complaints that hate groups are attempting to use Minecraft as a recruiting tool.

Taco Bell unleash new chihuahua mascot

By +Brad Naylor

Do you remember Gidget the Taco Bell dog who became famous across America for the catchphrase "¡Yo quiero Taco Bell!" which means "I want Taco Bell". Gidget was retired from Taco Bell duty in 2003 amidst claims of animal cruelty and forced cannibalism from people who believed that the dog actually ate Taco Bell food. Taco Bell say he was retired because sales were falling.
