Are you sick of flying bugs, too?

Hi, everyone, I just wanted to share a surprisingly easy way to get rid of a lot of bugs in the yard in case you hate them like I do.

1. Get some yellow containers or some random colored containers and some yellow duct tape.

2. Put a couple little food scraps inside that will rot and smell delicious to bugs. Think small. A piece of chicken and a slice of apple or something like that. If ...

George Washington Escaped Being Captured in New Jersey, Thanks to Alexander Hamilton

July 4, 2022

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – George Washington was 'this close' to being captured by British forces and presumably hanged as a traitor from a tree in New Brunswick.

So as you scarf down those barbecue wings, knock back a few cold ones and celebrate Independence Day, consider that the ragtag colonies’ struggle to break free from King George III’s sway could have ended 246 years ...

All in the Family

On a stifling hot moonlit night in the summer of 1871, the infamous outlaw and gun slinger, John Wesley Hardin, shot a man for snoring.

Legend has it that Hardin, traveling with his cousin Gip Clements, fell back in his room at the American House Hotel in Abilene, Kansas after a raucous night drinking. The next door down, rancher Charles Cougar was sleeping peacefully, if noisily, in his room.

Don't Worry, Be Happy

As a sentient human being, I need to stop thinking.

Happy the elephant is not a person, New York court rules.

I was confused by this headline because in the clipped style common to breaking news reports, I understood it to mean that New York’s court system is joyful that an elephant is not a person.
