Not all content fits into a neat package. Sometimes we come across stories or comments that are irreverent or over the top but still communicate relevant information and ideas. This is the place for such content.
We don't promote swearing or name-calling, however in some cases editing it would lessen the story's impact and authenticity. That being said, this is not a blog, nor is it a place for rants. It is a place where you may find humor, inspiration, or perspective. With these caveats, the content below is offered for your consideration.
