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.

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.
