  • A new BYU study shows girls who played video games with a parent felt more connected to their families, had fewer mental health issues and fewer problems with aggressive behavior.
  • Opponents Second.  Brothers First.
  • In celebration of Ronnie’s 100th birthday. 5 myths of Ronald Reagan’s Presidency.
  • It’s not contagious
  • Before and after of a shot of Katy Perry for Rolling Stone.  I think what’s most annoying to me about it is they just couldn’t leave it alone.  She’s very attractive, and I can guarantee nobody would have noticed her legs being a little curvier, her boobs being 1/2 lower, or any of the other numerous changes they made.  Fix the light and the color of the photo and I think you have a  great cover.  I wonder how these people feel when they see the magazine and realize the time and money they spend to look good still wasn’t enough for some photo editor?
