Post Column: Meteorite safety ignored by the feds

We should all deliver our thanks to the Great Deity of Powerful Air Resistance. Thanks to him, we were able to save a precious piece of beautiful Mother Russia wilderness from a 10,000-ton meteorite. We’re short on tundra space already, and we can’t afford to lose any more to those dastardly space rocks.

Post Column: Great Lakes' Eliot Ness fails to impress critics

While our last few beers have been exquisite and impressive, this week we sampled a beer that makes us say, “Meh.” Staying local, we tried Cleveland’s Great Lakes Brewing Company’s Eliot Ness. While we don’t have high opinions of most things from Cleveland, the two of us have always had much respect for Great Lakes and have frequently enjoyed their seasonal Christmas Ale and Conway’s Irish Ale.

Post Column: Breeding season is exciting time for fishers

As spring quickly approaches, bass will be moving to shallow, warm water where they can lay and fertilize eggs. They seek shallow water where the sun will keep the water and the eggs warm. This is because the sun acts as an incubator for the eggs, much like when birds sit on their eggs in preparation for hatching.

'God of War' one of gaming's most senselessly sexy

I have always heard people talk about how terribly women are portrayed in the God of War series. I had never played the series, but that is mainly because it’s Playstation 3 exclusive. It’s set in ancient Greece, and you play as Kratos, a Spartan warrior who serves the Olympian gods. Kratos is seeking revenge on his father, Zeus, for his betrayal. Cue the family drama.

Post Column: Shifting Tides: Second thoughts hamper major decisions

It was a surprise to find out that all the friends I’d been making first semester had passions and interests that came out in the form of their major or what they were doing with their little amount of free time. Studying anything from photojournalism to psychology, one-by-one I watched as they got involved and had stories to tell of what they were doing.

BedPost: Amount of sexual partners is irrelevant

I’ve recently started dating this guy and I really like him, but we haven’t had sex yet. The other day he asked me how many guys I’ve had sex with before him. I’m worried that it may be too high or low for him, so I didn’t tell him, but I think he wants to know. What should I do?

Post Column: College athletes should not be paid

Coaches of high-profile college football and men’s basketball programs are signing multimillion-dollar contracts year after year. In addition to that, some of those same high-profile programs are able to bring in millions of dollars in revenue every year.

Post Column: Conquering a fear of strangers at the carwash

All right, Ryan, enough is enough. Let’s face facts here: your car is filthy. There’s a family of raccoons living in the backseat, and someone wrote “WASH ME” on your back window. Then their finger apparently got stuck in the accumulated muck and it looks like they had to chew it off to escape, so now you’ve got a severed human finger sticking out of the back window.

Post Column: Redundancies abound in U.S. government

Boutros Boutros-Ghali was a prominent Egyptian politician and secretary-general of the United Nations from 1992 to 1996. He had this to say about bureaucracies: “The best way to deal with bureaucrats is with stealth and sudden violence.”

Post Column: Soured Jackie O's ale is ambitious, complex

These past few weeks, we’ve told you about Jackie O’s Razz Wheat, Bell’s Hopslam, and Left Handed Milk Stout. We like Razz Wheat, love Hopslam, and really like Milk Stout. Today, we’re going to tell you all about a beer that is, with no exaggeration, divine. It is near perfect.
