I thought I’d take a brief moment from the worlds of NFL football, comedy, and death metal to review a product that I put off sampling until recently. I work across from a General Nutrition Center, which ironically is full of things that are not exactly great for your health. My co-workers have all hopped on this new energy drink called “Vegas Fuel”, and the other day I finally decided to give it a shot.

Let’s face it, America runs on speed. From the gas tank in your car to the inside of Charlie Sheen’s nose, something has to power all of this shit and solar panels simply aren’t going to cut it.

When the energy drink craze hit, I wasn’t surprised. In fact, I was kind of disturbed that it took so long to explode in the first place. We’re talking about a culture where the…

Fifteen years ago I was a piece of shit. I drank almost every day, and had no concept of what it meant to be a respectful and productive member of society. Additionally I was also buying into the idea that as long as I was going to college, it didn’t matter what I was doing off campus. I was one of the many individuals who had been sold on the school of thought that college is the single most important thing you can do after the completion of grade sixteen.

Nowadays things have definitely changed for the better. I spend a great deal of time walking, mountain biking, and inline skating which have for the most part fed my dire need for an adrenaline rush in place of simply assuring the fine folks at Seagram’s they would be once again getting hefty bonuses at Christmas time. I…

First Order Historians


by Ryan Meehan

Nate Phelps is the son of the recently deceased Pastor Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church, which gained infamy from their protests at soldiers’ funerals around the United States. He is the sixth of thirteen children, and was taught his father’s extreme version of Calvinism from an early age. This was accompanied by extreme physical punishments and abuse, extreme dietary and health requirements, and other extreme expectations. Nate left home at midnight on his eighteenth birthday, and moved to California where he built a new life away from his family. He later moved to Canada, and only recently began speaking out about his story after a chance encounter with a reporter while driving a cab in Cranbrook, British Columbia. Nate has now spoken about his story to many groups around North America, and even returned home to Topeka in 2010 to tell his story to the…

Thanksgiving is upon us, meaning the holidays are in full swing.  So I’d like to step on my soapbox for a minute and remind everyone to please support your local businesses whenever possible.  It puts money back into the community, but it’s YOUR community.  It increases sales tax revenue that is used to fund projects in the places where you live.  So this year, skip Amazon and go to your local bookstore.  What was this article supposed to be about?  That’s right…football.  Time for gathering around the table and sharing some more dry tasting food for yet another year.  This week there are some great games, so let’s see what’s going down…
