A State of Ignorance

Victoria Nugent
No comments

It scares me how many people living within our society are ignorant of the most simple things. Sometimes the ones who are supposed to be the most switched on are the most brainless of the lot. Case in point. I was sitting down having lunch one day last year at university, a place where I…

No comments

In the movie Juno, there’s a scene where Juno is asked if her parents would be wondering where she is and she casually replies, “Nah… I mean, I’m already pregnant, so what other kind of shenanigans could I get into?” Common knowledge: once you’re pregnant, you can’t get pregnant again.

One comment

Last night, in my miscellaneous musings, I had an idea which may strike many of you as odd. It is: Sarah Palin is America’s equivalent of Pauline Hanson.  That probably sounds strange but stay with me here, okay?  I’ve found that regarding Sarah Palin, I’m more than a little apprehensive of coming out and saying…
