Can Busch Non-Alcoholic Beer Get You Drunk? 

Recently, I was chatting with a friend on Twitter about my favorite topic; yes, of course, I’m referring to that famous drink of beer. I’ve never met this friend in person, but, judging by his (many) tweets, I get the sense that he is a man of at least average intelligence, and is morally competent in a… » 7/10/15 3:46pm 7/10/15 3:46pm

Trevor Bauer Imitates Three Teammates' Batting Stances In One At-Bat

Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer had some fun last night with his rare opportunity to make some plate appearances, and made the most of his third trip to the plate in Pittsburgh by mimicking three of his teammates’ batting stances: Mike Aviles, Jason Kipnis, and Ryan Raburn. How well did he do? We placed them side-by-side… » 7/04/15 10:01am 7/04/15 10:01am

Monster Truck Pulls Off Double Backflip

Monster truck driver Tom Meents pulled off a double backflip tonight at Gillette Stadium, something which is apparently a pretty big deal (Meents failed on his previous three attempts) and looks pretty cool, regardless. Like most Monster Jam events, it’s another example of destroying an automobile in the most… » 6/20/15 8:08pm 6/20/15 8:08pm

Let's Try Joy Of Cooking's Worst Recipes. First Up: Quick Fish Loaf

I like to eat. Most of you do, too, I’m fairly sure, because I’ve seen you all doing it out at restaurants and in front of, behind, or under food trucks, and I daresay you looked quite pleased with yourselves. But due to the finite geometry of intestines and other guts, as well as the unwelcome but omnipresent… » 5/11/15 11:26am 5/11/15 11:26am

Our Very Own Drew Magary Is A Contestant On Chopped Tonight

Longtime readers may recall that your friend and mine Drew Magary applied to be an amateur contestant on Chopped, the Food Network’s allegedly very popular cooking show, back in July 2012. Well, he made it on, and the episode airs tonight at 10 p.m. EST. (He is one of the four people to the left.) I can promise you… » 4/07/15 5:11pm 4/07/15 5:11pm

What Happens When A 38-Year-Old Man Takes An AP History Test?

I never took an AP course in high school. I'm pretty sure it was because I never qualified for it (I went straight B-minuses throughout my high school career), but it was also because I went to school back when taking AP courses wasn't the dire necessity that it is for today's students. According to this article,… » 3/18/15 11:42am 3/18/15 11:42am

Get Bent: I Watched The Simpsons Marathon For 24 Hours Straight

I wasn't allowed to watch The Simpsons growing up. It wasn't until I was 10 or so that my parents let my sister and I watch a single episode, and then only because they'd heard it had some kind of moral: "Bart learns a lesson," something along those lines. I remember the exact episode: "Radio Bart," season 3,… » 8/26/14 10:38am 8/26/14 10:38am

More Gimmicks The Simpsons Should Consider

The longest marathon in TV history is just one of several stunts The Simpsons has launched following April's revelation of record-low ratings. For starters, there was the recent Lego episode; next season, we'll get a Family Guy crossover and an episode where a character will be killed off. But why stop there? » 8/22/14 3:15pm 8/22/14 3:15pm

My 14-Hour Search for the End of TGI Friday's Endless Appetizers

What if I told you that mozzarella sticks never had to end? That for $10, you could eat for free (for $10) for the rest of your natural life? That there exists a spot in the space-time continuum in which it is always Friday? That there are free refills on all Slushes™ excluding Red Bull® branded items?… » 7/18/14 11:33am 7/18/14 11:33am

I Sang Two National Anthems At An NBA Game And Did Not Start A War

Canada ruins everything. At least, it does when it comes to event planning your standard regular-season NBA game. As you probably know, any game that features an American team playing a Canadian team must include the singing of both "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "O Canada." If you look up into the rafters of any… » 3/20/14 4:13pm 3/20/14 4:13pm
