My honest opinion of 9/11

Let’s move on. We were attacked 12 years ago. It’s pathetic that we are still milking this tragedy for political gain. The only thing we can do to prevent another 9/11 is to simply stop having gunboat diplomacy around the world. And as we exit the era of militarism, we should enter an era of trade and commerce.

How do to laundry for boarding school and college students

Hello people. This will be one of my “fun” posts.

Today I’m going to teach you how to do laundry. I will admit this: before boarding school, I never did a load of laundry. Laundry is incredibly simple actually. When I figured out it was simple I was just shocked that it was that easy.

Step 1: Separate lights and darks. The only exception to this rule is underwear and sports gear.

Step 2: Follow washing machine’s instructions on how to use detergent or bleach.

Step 3: Insert clothing.

Step 4: Press start. If your school requires coins (like mine) insert coins first, then press start.

Step 5: Take washed clothing out of washer and put into dryer. 

Step 6: Press Start. If your school requires coins (like mine) insert coins first, then press start.

Step 7: Take clothing out of dryer and go back to dorm.

You’re done! And I can’t stress this enough: take your clothes out when you are done. You do not want to be the dick who leaves their clothing in the washer or dryer.

Syria. What a mess.

Hello everyone. Sorry I haven’t been posting. American Football practice and boarding school takes up a LOT of time. Anyway, I’m going to talk about Syria. As we all know Syria is in the middle of a civil war. On one side you have President Assad, Russia and Iran. On the other side you have the rebels who want to oust Assad, the rebels also happen to have ties with Islamists, such as Al-Qaeda. It’s really complicated and it is over my head.

We really shouldn’t intervene. Syria poses no risk to US National Security and there is no clear ally. It’s not your neat and clean Disney, good guy vs. bad guy story. If we do intervene and miraculously fix everything; Al-Qaeda, Russia, Iran and Loyalists from the current regime will NOT be happy. Terrorist attacks on US soil will follow our actions in Syria. Remember Afghanistan in the 1980s? Remember how well intervening worked out then? Getting involved in Middle-East conflicts bites us in the ass eventually. So we really shouldn’t intervene. Unless of course we send congress to Syria: http://www.theonion.com/articles/poll-majority-of-americans-approve-of-sending-cong,33752/
