Aries (March 21- April 19): Time to lose some of that winter fat and start shopping for speedos and bikinis.

Aries (March 21- April 19): Bad weather will somehow correspond with the volume of gas expelled out of your butt hole each morning. One fart means it’s going to be sunny and pleasant.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Eating garbage may not sound pleasant, but you need to consume as much as possible in order to build up antibodies in your immune system.

Mallory Barker Ryan Thorne Gov. Butch Otter recently signed Senate Bill 1254 into law, allowing Idaho citizens with concealed weapons permits to carry concealed firearms on Idaho college campuses. The bill drew flocks of critics and demonstrators to the capitol building as well as universal scorn from Boise Police chief Mike Masterson and Idaho’s university presidents. This isn’t the first time law enforcement and legislators have clashed over guns laws in Idaho. Back in 1990 when concealed gun laws were drastically rewritten, Idaho sheriffs universally opposed legislation that took away their right to subjectively hand out concealed permits. “I am ...

By: Tashina Fleming The focus of my blog is “Healthy mind, body and spirit.” As a college freshman, I really struggled with finding the tips and tricks to college.

I was worn thin and knew I needed to make a change. For the past year, I have let go of my bad habits and instead have cultivated a healthy lifestyle. Now in my senior year of ...

Ewwww gross… Taurus (April 20-May 20): You will fall into a deep coma this week after ingesting massive amounts of energy drinks and bad pizza. In your mind, you will be in a magical forest whose inhabitants drink from lakes ...
