Say hello to your new emperor: Hermione Granger.

Why Nerds Will Take Over The World

With the recent surge of Pokémon GO, nerds have shown not only intellectual ability but athletic mastery as well (once thought to be untouchable to academics). Because of this phenomenon, geeks have a chance to swoop in and save the 2016 Presidential election. How? By usurping the role of world leader. Don't believe me? Shove those coke-bottle glasses up the bridge of your nose and take a peek at your new candidate for torchbearer of the globe.

"Geeks have a chance to swoop in and save the 2016 Presidential election."

They have an expansive memory and vocabulary.

During my childhood, I held Pokemon players with high esteem because they knew every character name, power, and elemental constitution. Because over 700 exist, knowledge of at least 2100 facts in one area of study alone impresses me.

A nerd could take over the world through acts of espionage. Spies must have immense recollection abilities to remember codes and information about an enemy's weaknesses. If they know three flaws in 700 leaders of countries, they can "catch (and defeat) em all" before Pokemon Go improves their servers.

Nerds work well in teams (or armies).

Any gathering of Dungeons and Dragons or Quidditch teams at colleges proves the power of a nerdy army. A shared enthusiasm and dedication to one subject renders an intellectual team nearly unstoppable. Want to clash with a nerd who owns a sword in his trunk and a crossbow in the hood of his car? How about a group of ten? One hundred? Didn't think so . . .

They fly under the radar.

No one suspects the under spoken kid in glasses. Because teachers adore them -- they could get away with murder (in even more than their fanfiction novel). A nerd can easily eliminate any competition for world domination.

Nerds speak in languages commoners can't comprehend.

Doctor Who jargon and twirls of the tongue at medieval fairs squash the brains of ordinary peasants. Because nerds share a common language, others cannot decipher their plans to conquer society. By the time the FBI discovers a translation, the entire world will speak the lingo of the new leader.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
