If you’re familiar with high school talent shows, then you understand what Super Bowl advertising is becoming. In both instances, a never-ending queue of characters is trotted out in front of an audience, each attempting to impress and dazzle, to inherit a new identity by sheer willpower and hopefully change their fate in the brutal […]
It’s All Greek to Me Decimated and exhausted, the Greek army was stymied again and again outside the walls of Troy. “Ah fudge,” the generals exclaimed. “We’re stymied.” If they couldn’t figure out a way inside, they would be ruined.

This change has inspired a lot of theories about the motivation behind it — some folks think […]
It’s that time of year again, when people huddle up next to a warm fire after going Apple picking with their loved ones at their local Apple store.
