• This article was a nice change in pace from a lot of the heavier topics being written about! This made me smile and think about all the videos I’ve seen of this. At the time I had no idea there was such a huge community for bread stapling and it makes me think about all the other insane reddit blogs that must exist. I think it’s awesome that this…[Read more]

    • Great insight! Your elaboration on police brutality was well thought and eye-opening.I never really gave much thought unequal status police officers could have in a courtroom.
