| Right | February 25, 2021

Dear readers,

The phrase “parent-teacher conference” is enough to send shivers down the spine of students, teachers, and parents alike. It’s not so bad if the conference involves a “hardworking” student who is “a delight to have in class,” but for some of us… yikes. I’m sure I’m not the only one who got very familiar with phrases like, “talks too much,” and, “easily distracted,” and “not living up to their potential.”

But it’s not always students for whom these conferences are a painful experience! We’ve rounded up 17 stories about parent-teacher conferences that were anything but “a delight to have in class”!

12 Hilarious Stories About People Who Believed What They Saw On Crime Shows

| Right | February 24, 2021

Dear readers,

We’ve all seen those shows where simply saying “zoom and enhance” can get the perpetrator captured before the episode is up. Crime serials can be thrilling, but they are also wildly unrealistic when it comes to what is standard procedure for real life, instead choosing to max out the drama with supercomputers, impossible image correction, and even dangerously simplified medical procedures.

We’ve rounded up twelve stories that prove shows like CSI have a lot to answer for!

 

Forensics For Dummies – Maybe if someone had Photoshopped the person in front into the picture…

Why Don’t You (Law &) Order The New CSI-NCIS-H50 Computer?! – Even if they existed, would you have the brains to use them?

10 Stories About Horsing Around With Horses!

| Right | February 23, 2021

Dear readers,

We all know someone who was a “horse girl” growing up. This was a kid who doodled horses and ponies all over their notebooks, disappeared for days when the county fair was running, and wore boots in situations that really didn’t call for them. Personally, I think there’s a little bit of “horse girl” in all of us, though we may not all reach Tina Belcher-levels of obsession.

For some people, owning horses and riding them all the time is a beautiful dream. For others, it should probably stay firmly in the dream category and never progress to reality. In honor of horse lovers of all kinds (and a few other weirdos), we’ve corraled 10 stories from our archives about horses!

 

Equine Isn’t Fine – Riding a horse isn’t complicated, but there’s more to it than that!
