I was creeped out by the Teletubbies before, but now I will have nightmares after watching that.  Reminds me of the movie, The Strangers.

Terrifying

For any food containers, the coating is made from edible materials like plants.

Your innards should be good to go.

Actually going to grad school at Duke would make you the exception to the "local" Duke/ UNC basketball fans that annoy most of us.  

I grew up a UC fan, but once I became an OSU fan (late grade school into high school, i.e. when I gained control of a remote control to change the channel on the TV) and went to OSU, I'm all-in on OSU in all sports with barely any support for other schools.

Do you think it's acceptable to feed Skyline Chili to a minor? If yes to either of those questions, Xavier might be your team.

I do think Skyline Chili is acceptable to feed to a minor, but Xavier is not my team.

Emma Stone knows it is true.

I'm going Wichita State, West Virginia, Mich St., and Wisconsin as the teams I'll "root" for.

OSU fans should rightfully hate on UC; think of Xavier as more sophisticated than them. 

Why? Why hate on UC more than XU? How is Xavier "more sophisticated" than UC? Growing up in Catholic schools (a lot of X fans in the same mold as ND fans) in Cincinnati, I know that both fan bases can be detestable; X fans can just be more arrogant at times to me, in the same light as ND and scUM.

Kyle Snyder at 197lbs would be more accurate for a linebacker.  He is a load and if given the opportunity to gain weight above 197, I think he would be a good one.

National Runner-up and looking for three-time National Champion in the next three years.

Despite losing Logan Stieber, Buckeye wrestling is still ascending, which is crazy to think about (three freshman finished in the top three in their weight classes).

There are a lot of people working on it.  Desalination is a very complex issue.  It takes a lot of energy to pump water through the polymer membranes, as well as having environmental impacts if the brine that is left over is not disposed of properly (i.e. we can't just dump it back in the ocean).

I would ban golf mainly because of the crazy amount of water needed to run a golf course. And that is becoming a huge problem if you live in the western US especially CA.

There was a sequel. Mortal Kombat Annihilation. The first one was so bad that it was good. The sequel was just plain bad.

Most Pixar movies.  Especially any of the Toy Stories, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, and Wall-E.

The LEGO Movie.  

Mortal Kombat!!!
