My night with a drug addict at McDonald's or "Would you like to try the new McHeroin today?":

My night with a drug addict at McDonald's or "Would you like to try the new McHeroin today?":
I have to learn to stop leaving my house. After spending a leisurely afternoon at home, reading and rearranging as one is wont to do, my mother asked me if I’d like to go out to dinner with one of our mutual co-workers and my sister? And of course, ignoring all of the misheggas that usually... Read more »

"Suicide Squad Committed Suicide" or I'm gonna to tell you why Superhero Movies SUCK today (and why you should care)

"Suicide Squad Committed Suicide" or I'm gonna to tell you why Superhero Movies SUCK today (and why you should care)
Growing up in the 90’s, it was only natural for me to acquire a mild taste for superheroes. I had the Batman: The Animated Series VHS tapes and played with my Spiderman 2 Lego set and enjoyed every second. Yet, while it was a blissful time for me, it was also the continuation of the... Read more »

Steven's Restaurant Corner: The Tale of The Billy Goat Tavern at Yorktown Mall or "John Belushi must be rolling in his grave"

You absentmindedly knock into the plant on the ledge next to you and unleash what very well might be twenty-five years of dust and pizza crusts. Upon closer inspection, you deduce that what looking like a slightly-faded fern... Read more »

The Pursuit of Happiness...and Irrationality: A Political and Societal Query

The Pursuit of Happiness...and Irrationality: A Political and Societal Query
When one studies philosophy, one comes away with a clear definition of the concepts of rationality and irrationality: “Rationality is man’s basic virtue, the source of all his other virtues. Man’s basic vice, the source of all his evils, is the act of unfocusing his mind, the suspension of his consciousness, which is not blindness,... Read more »

Grimace for President! (or "Trump Visits Chicago")

Grimace for President! (or "Trump Visits Chicago")
As Trump visits Chicago this fine, crisp evening, I must sit here and ruminate on his mighty sojourn to our fair little burg. Throughout my years of talking politics (and studying politics as a part of philosophy as a whole) I have found myself to be fairly even-headed and rational. But, sadly, this election have...
