The baseball article is how long?

Too long. I admit that I have spent a ridiculous amount of my time at Brandeis University writing long baseball articles that no one understands. But I do not think that took anything away from my experience.    When I was looking at schools to visit in Massachusetts, my mom suggested that I come visit […]

What is the worst candy ever created?

This week’s ranking will be even more controversial than normal. I am going to rank 50 candies. The problem with candies is that there are so many of them and there are so many versions of them. There are probably 10+ versions of M&Ms that I could have ranked. In this case, I mixed up […]

What is the best sandwich?

It is a truth that should be universally acknowledged that a sandwich is only as good as its ratio. What ratio, you ask? The ratio of bread to filling. You see there is a very distinct ratio that must be kept between bread and its filling and it’s not 1:1. It’s got to be at […]

Don’t drink the water if you can’t see through it (part two)

In a past article, I expressed concerns about per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), being found in rainwater. These chemicals, which are generally used in coatings and products that resist heat, oil, stains, grease, and water, are known as “forever chemicals.” Terrifyingly, this means that these highly toxic fluorinated chemicals don’t break down naturally. They’ve been […]

The best fruit out there: part 2

Welcome back to my random rankings of different things. This week I am going to continue my rankings of fruits. Last week I ranked the “bottom” 25 fruits from a list that I randomly got from the internet. A lot of those fruits I have never tried before, but this week within the top 25, […]

NFL Combine highlights

I want to preface this article by saying I do not watch college football. Therefore, most of what I know about the National Football League (NFL) draft prospects comes from what I have read and highlight videos I have watched. I do think the NFL drafting process is very interesting and the NFL Combine makes […]
