"U.S. News likes to claim that it uses rigorous methodology, but, honestly, it's just a list put together by magazine editors. The whole exercise is a little silly. Or rather, it would be if it weren't so pernicious."

When to Take Drugs

I am thankful for all the times we've been able to shelve our school books for the day and spend time in nature. I have seen and done so many things that I never got to see or do when I was a kid because I was stuck inside most of the time reading about things I knew I could experience firsthand if I weren't stuck in some stuffy, artificially-lit classroom.
