My Review Of Ambronite, The "Drinkable Supermeal"



Recently I received an e-mail from Valerie Vlasenko (one of the kind folks working for Ambronite), asking if I would like to write about their product, a "drinkable supermeal" that's designed to give busy people a quick, easy, and healthy way to stay satiated during the day. I was flattered to be offered the chance, so I quickly accepted. Within a couple days, a box loaded with packets of the Ambronite drink mix arrived at my doorstep (I think they gave me three days worth of the stuff).

Also included were instructions for how to use it, which I of course read. Apparently there's a special shaker bottle that you're supposed to use with Ambronite, but as I didn't have one I used a standard shaker bottle instead (those ones with a steel wire ball, usually used to whip up a protein shake after a workout).

A Brief Rant About Height Fraud in the NBA


The guy on the left is listed at 6'1" (and is likely closer to 6'0"). The guy on the right is listed at 6'3".

I know that I am pretty much the only person who thinks about stuff like this, but I'm going to rant about it anyways: how the heck does the NBA get away with so much height fraud?!

In a sport where so much depends upon height, you'd think that they'd get their numbers straight. But no. It's entirely the opposite.

Standardized Testing Gets A Failing Grade


Is it just me or is Last Week Tonight already better than The Daily Show?

Ok, so that's a bit of an overly dramatic title. But it is semi-creative so it stays...for now.

Anyways, I just now watched John Oliver's video lambasting standardized testing and wanted to chime in and say that I couldn't agree more.

He goes over a lot of good points in his piece, so I'll touch upon a subject that he wasn't really able to elaborate on: standardized testing at the college level.

5 Things I Learned Watching Big Brother 16



Whelp, this year's relatively boring edition of Big Brother is over, and I've got a whole bunch of things I want to talk about. When I say boring, I'm speaking more in terms of the gameplay that went on. Derrick pretty much ruled the roost from day one, and nobody had the intelligence or foresight to stop him. That being said, it was still entertaining to watch everything go down. Ok, I'll stop my blathering, here's the stereotypical list!

Here's A Useful Website You Haven't Heard About...

Have you ever found yourself in that situation where you're watching a movie or TV show, and think to yourself, "hmm I wonder how tall that actor/actress is?" No? Well good, because that means you aren't an OCD freak like me. If, by chance, you said yes, then I have the perfect website for you!
