@ Mother Nature: Wtf

5 Wacky Animals That Will Make You Say 'Whaaaaaat?!'

Sometimes reality is indeed stranger than fiction. This is seen especially in the animal kingdom because Mother Nature has a wacky sense of humor. Here are just a few of the most outrageous animals out there.

1. Peacock Spider


This spider makes the list purely based on its rockin' dance moves. I mean, look at how he's breaking it down. He's better than half the people I've encountered at any frat party I've ever attended. You go, spider man.

2. Proboscis Monkey


Look at the honker on this guy. He's like the Squidward of the jungle. Why does he need a nose like that? What's the point? I think you can probably guess why he's on this list just by looking at him. Good prank, Mother Nature, but this one's kinda mean.

3. Axolotl

Consider inviting this "Mexican salamander" to your next fiesta. Look! He's already got a party hat. This guy is pretty cute for something that has a name that you'll never be able to pronounce. He almost looks like a super cute sock puppet.

4. Dumbo Octopus


You wanna know why he's called a Dumbo Octopus? He swims using his "ears" just like Disney's Dumbo! That's so cute! But also kinda weird!

5. Cassowary


If you ever find yourself in Australia, look out for this guy. Generally, Australia has a pretty high concentration of "wtf" animals, but this bird is especially weird. Cassowaries can reach up to 6.6 feet in height and weigh up to 130 pounds. Yikes, Mother Nature. You went a little wild on this one.

The world around us is a beautiful and amazing place, but it also contains some pretty weird creatures. Even though some are wacky, it's just part of what makes Earth so interesting.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
