Yes Maybe

Is Taking Candy From A Baby Really That Easy
She Knows

Everyone knows the old saying “as easy as taking candy from a baby” but it turns out it’s much harder than people expect. I suspected that it couldn’t be so easy to take from a baby so I conducted a little experiment. I walked around my local park and attempted to steal candy from every baby I came across. You would be surprised to find just how many parents don’t trust their kid with a small stick that could choke and kill them. After three hours of searching I finally found one parent stupid enough to trust their kid with a lollypop. I walked on over, grabbed the tootsie pop out of his hand, and was immediately met with a slap to the face. There I was on the ground with the world spinning around me.

I thought it was the end as the parent kept kicking me and asking what was wrong with me. Eventually the police showed up and I thought "finally, salvation". As soon as the mother explained what had occured they joined in on the attack. I guarded the tootsie pop as much as I could but it was knocked from my hand and onto the gross asphalt. After 20 minutes of this, my own personal hell, they walked away and I was left to shake and sob on the hard, unforgiving ground.

I walked into my day with a fresh face and no lollypop, but I ended it with a black eye and a gross spit upon lollypop. So my conclusion is that yes it is easy to take candy from a baby for about 1 second because after that your town is going to “hate” you for attacking the local children. I’d do it again if I had to.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
