Scientists Discover Proof Of The Unicorn's Existence

Sure it's not as pretty, but it was there!

Scientists Discover Proof Of The Unicorn's Existence
Metro Vaartha

Recently I was scrolling through eons of ridiculous articles on politicians, celebrities, and various world crises when I came across an article of true worth: proof of a unicorn’s very existence.

Dare I say, I’ve never been more excited in my life.

We’re always waiting on these sort of happenings to occur, for scientists to uncover the fossilized body of a mermaid or for evidence of Bigfoot’s presence to finally surface. Naturally, I had to look more into this, as there is always a catch.

It is true, that the Siberian unicorn or Elasmotherium sibiricum existed on our own Earth many, many years ago. However, it's rather majestic reputation is a myth; the Siberian unicorn was covered in hair reminiscent of a mammoth and it's notoriously sleek lean body more so resembled that of a rhinoceros’. However, the mighty ethereal horn remains! ScienceAlert described it as “a fuzzy rhinoceros with one long, slender horn protruding from its face.” Even with its brawny stature, it most likely only consumed grasses. Still cute, I’d think!

Up until now, scientists believed the Siberian unicorn had not walked this Earth in 350,000 years. A recent discovery of a unicorn’s fossilized skull proved that, somehow, the unicorn was still around only 29,000 years ago. What makes it so magical is that this singular unicorn had somehow outlasted the rest of its species, which supposedly died out hundreds of thousands of years earlier. Scientists are still looking into logical reasoning behind this, but we all know it’s because unicorns are simply magical.

What I propose, most indecently, is that we use the DNA of the Siberian unicorn to breed with that of a horse. After many generations, we will have ourselves a pretty modest unicorn. Of course, this idea proves that I am no scientist.

You can read more about the ancient furry unicorn at U.S. News and ScienceAlert as well as the American Journal of Applied Science for a much more in-depth analysis.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
