The 20 Greatest Things About Going to College in the South
One of the most important decisions in a young bro’s life comes at the end of their senior year in high school, and it’s not whether to get that $600 abortion or a killer system for your car. It’s deciding where to go to college. I come from outside of Boston but decided to hit up the South for college. I made the trek down south for three things: the girls, the weather, and the club lax (so much more chill than D1, 2, or 3). There are times that I love my decision and there’s times that I hate it, so for all you seniors out there, I’ve put together a list of pros and cons about going to school in the South. (Waffles’ College Chick’s Breakdowns should help you narrow things down from there.) Look out for a North edition coming soon.
Will my kids like it? Yes! There are a few peril-fraught moments which caused my 7-year-old daughter to hug my arm tightly, but the film is rated G so, as you’d expect, nothing too terrible happens. The humor is balanced well, with plenty for all ages to enjoy: My kids laughed and grinned throughout most of the movie. Will I like it? Yes! This may be the best of the three Toy Story films, which is saying an awful lot. The Ken doll (voiced by Michael Keaton) by himself is funny enough that the other humor is almost a bonus. There are at least a dozen references to other movies, including ones (like Star Wars and My Neighbor Totoro) that geek kids are likely to get. And there’s serious poignancy — if your eyes are dry during the last major scene of the film, either you’ve had your tear ducts blocked by plastic surgery or you need your heart thawed out. My sixty-something mother saw the movie with my kids, my wife and me, and she loved it just as much as we did, so I can safely say it crosses generations.
The World's 18 Strangest Military Bases
The world's hodgepodge of military bases run the gamut from hazardous mountaintop forts to seemingly impenetrable underground bunkers. Then there are bases on remote islands tracking objects in deep space and high-tech laboratories probing the most lethal microbes in existence. The design of a base needs to address the immediate needs of a military while still being versatile enough to remain useful as threats and technology evolve. We tracked down some of the most interesting active military facilities and spoke with Brad Schulz, vice president of federal architecture at HNTB, about why they're notable.
20 Must See Movies To Share With Your Kids
When it comes to children there are only two kinds of movies: The kind you show them to shut them up and the kind you share with them in the hopes they'll remember them for the rest of their lives. By the time my firstborn is six or seven, he or she will have seen more than his or her fair share of Nutty Professors or Shrek Forever Afters, and that's fine. But once your kids are old enough to remember, it becomes important to make sure you're also showing them something better. Yet you can't wait around until they're old enough to really take in and appreciate movies like Rear Window or Lord of the Rings, let alone get literate enough to handle subtitles. By then it'll be too late. Beverly Hills Chihuahua VII will already own their brains. This weekend fathers around the country are taking their toddlers and pre-teens to see Toy Story 3, and while those kids have probably already forgotten Marmaduke, that Pixar experience is one they may remember for the rest of their lives.
