For all the dudes out there that can't stand poetry, there's a new art form for you. It's called Broetry. Yes, poems for bros. Popular broet Brian McGackin has compiled a collection of his own works in a book cunningly titled Broetry, which he calls a "literary chili cheeseburger."
This mysterious actor always has some buzz surrounding his non-traditional lifestyle. From an admirable yet incessant desire to learn (the same thing, over and over again) to his choice not to sleep (but then to fall asleep unexpectedly and have his photo taken), it's always left us wondering: what's this guy's deal?
The thing about me is that I'm easily annoyed. Perhaps that will be my downfall in relationships, but c'mon, there are some things that are just common sense. No one wants to feel smothered or totally ignored. Showing up everywhere I am is creepy. I'm sorry if you thought it was romantic. And these are just a few of those small things that are sure to annoy me when I first start dating a new guy.

Every relationship has its point where things begin to seem a bit…well…dull. When you first start dating, the excitement of getting to know someone new, trying new things and having new experiences is exhilarating and helps to keep the spark alive. But after a while when the "new" hype has died down, we look for other ways to spice things up in our relationship. Instantly we think, the bedroom!

Ever stop and wonder who these people are that camp out in front of the celebrity homes, waiting for them them to emerge, on the slight chance that they could snap a pic that could possibly be worth thousands of dollars? Ever ponder if those people actually know when the celebs are coming out of their homes? Uh huh, I do too. Don't you think it's weird that the paparazzi always know when Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez are going to kiss, or where Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise are going to be shopping today, or what time Shia LaBeouf is going to take out his trash tonight?
Boy-bands: back in the 90s, we were their biggest fans. We rocked out to every one of their songs, hung posters of their seemingly perfect pre-pubescent faces on our walls, and daydreamed of our secret romances with them. That inevitable feeling of nostalgia whenever we hear a classic Hanson song, or relive the "Battle of the Acrobatic Boy Band Videos"...

To become a member of the site you must have a working .edu email address.
So, what's creepier than featuring a photoshopped image of the late Princess of Wales (14 yrs deceased) and the new Duchess of Cambridge (just married to the Princess' son) on the cover of the latest Newsweek? Oh that's right, NOTHING.

We've all seen those cheesy commercials promising students who enroll in hassle-free online classes at these for-profit institutions a guaranteed job within the lucrative careers of their choice. What these commercials forget to mention, though, are the incredibly steep tuition costs, the even steeper debt that students should plan to graduate with, and the statistics of high dropout and low success rates of graduates from these institutions.
