It's forking hilarious!

5 Reasons You Should Start Watching 'The Good Place'

If you haven't seen The Good Place on NBC, then I highly suggest you binge Season 1 on Netflix, and then get up to speed with Season 2 which is airing now. The Good Place, without giving too much away, gives a look into what it would be like in the Good Place and the Bad Place after our time on earth. The Good Place is a comedy tv show starring Kristen Bell as Eleanor Shellstrop, who discovers very early on that she definitely doesn't belong in the good place, and Ted Danson as Michael, who is in charge of the Good Place.

1. Four Seemingly Displaced People Who Come Together

A team of four to spend eternity with one another in the Good Place! Nothing could go wrong... right?

2. It Takes The Meaning of Hell (and torture) To A Whole New Hilarious Level

Apparently biting is considered torture.

3. They Get Their Own Janet!

"I am Janet. I'm the informational assistant here in the Good Place."

How cool is that? The Good Place has an informational assistant to help you with literally everything. To bring you things like froyo and video games.

4. It Shines A (Hilarious?) Light On The Trolley Problem

Some insight to the trolley problem, and maybe a not so positive light, but an interesting and funny hellish light. Well... I laughed, so am I going to the Bad Place?

5. They Get Away With Saying The 'F' Word On National TV

Okay, it's not actually the 'F' word, but it basically is because we all get the point.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
