Free Shipping On All Orders Above $69 WITH CODE: AFFFS
   The episode begins on Eleanor’s little house, with Chidi lecturing in his usual tiresome fashion. He brings up a thought experiment called the “Trolley Problem.” It involves you driving a trolley and a choice between two tracks. On one track are five people. On the other is one person. There’s no way to slow down in time to not hit either, so you’ll either kill one or five people. You can’t save everyone. Chidi asks, “What do you do?” Eleanor wishes to know if any of the people involved are...

Star Trek Discovery, Season 1, Ep. 5: “Choose Your Pain” Recap

 
15% OFF $99+ CODE: AFF15
 Discovery is settling into a good rhythm with ‘Choose Your Pain.’   A lot of action, as always, but with a little more character development. I noticed it for Saru especially. He’s been hard to read in the previous episodes, but we get to see more behind the mask when he’s under the stress of acting captain. And afterward, as Michael gives him Captain Georgiou’s telescope, they both become almost human. Yes, I know she’s actually human. I meant metaphorically. Recap   Read the bold...

Netflix TV: MINDHUNTER Season 1 Review and Analysis

Netflix TV: MINDHUNTER Season 1 Review and Analysis

  Review (no spoilers)   Just in time for Halloween, Netflix released its newest original series MINDHUNTER on October (Friday) 13th. If I had to sum up Season 1 of the new Netflix Original Series MINDHUNTER is one word, it would be “creepy”. If I had to pick a second word, less-obvious word to define the show, it would be “hubris”. Despite its generic name (based on a semi-autobiographical account of FBI Profiler John Douglas), MINDHUNTER isn’t your standard...
 
Make sure your blender is up to speed

Make sure your blender is up to speed

Everything’s better with a smoothie.   I’m always busy, and having a nutritious way to eat without mess or utensils that I can drink a little at a time is perfect. One of my favorite memories in college is sipping my smoothie in my summer history class. That was senior year, and most of my classes by that time were really hard, but this one was easy and actually relaxing. An ice cold smoothie in my thermos finished it off perfectly. It was more like summer vacation than summer class. Smoothies...

It’s Official: Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino Coming October 26th

Photo by @BrandonEazyy   New Zombie Frappuccino Is Coming To Starbucks   Starbucks says of its new Frappuccino, chillingly: “New Zombie Frappuccino: YOU’LL LOSE YOUR MIND”   We just got a tip from a trusted source that Starbucks will be running an “Extremely Limited” release of their brand-new Zombie Frappucino, and it sounds just as wild as the very popular Unicorn Frappuccino released for a few days this past summer. This is not yet announced by Starbucks...

Think You’re Watching Netflix in 4k? You Might Not Be

Think You’re Watching Netflix in 4k? You Might Not Be

I watch Netflix a ridiculous amount. I love TV and movies, and over the past few years I’ve been in a rather unique position of being able to “watch” in the background while I do boring work that doesn’t require much attention or thought. The bottom line is, if I’m going to be watching Netflix every day, I’d like to watch it in the best quality available. You may not be watching Netflix as much as I am, but with UHD screens now commonly in use in...
Why I Chose Amazon Music Unlimited For My Streaming Needs

Why I Chose Amazon Music Unlimited For My Streaming Needs

I’ve personally tried Spotify Premium, Pandora Premium and Amazon Music Unlimited, and I did research on all of the big streaming services before making my pick.   Many people are now paying for a music streaming service. The ability to listen to brand-new albums alongside your old favorites without buying them individually is much more cost-effective for many. This is not an exhaustive run-down of every music streaming service out there. This is my personal recommendation based on my...
 
 
Healthier ways to satisfy your sugar craving

Healthier ways to satisfy your sugar craving

I’ve always loved sugar. But I’d rather not. I’ve tried quitting sugar cold turkey, and it’s extremely difficult. When I walk past the pastries in the grocery store, I need to have an alternative to block my ears to their siren call. It’s a lot easier to just say ‘no’ to doughnuts when I know I’ll be buying an alternative, healthier sugary food. So now I opt for a healthier way without stressing that it’s not the absolute healthiest way. Moderation in all things! Here’s my top 7 most effective...
Fun and healthy activities for your kids

Fun and healthy activities for your kids

Sports vs activities for younger kids I’ve never been great at sports, but that didn’t stop me from getting a lot out of them as a player and later as a referee. Sports are fun for all ages, but not as much fun for toddlers and preschoolers. Smaller kids don’t have as much desire for structure or competition when playing. Watching preschoolers try to ‘play soccer’ is incredibly cute, but they’d probably have more fun with a friend at the park. Unstructured playing also gives them more...
