Fast food remains a guilty pleasure for humans and animals alike

Fast food remains a guilty pleasure for humans and animals alike

It has been declared that fast food is weirdly-delicious and mighty convenient to almost all people in the industrial world. Individuals recognize fast food or “junk food” as that which comes with triple the suet at half the cost, commonly paired with overload packaging and flimsy paper napkins. How interesting that the value meal slaps the brain’s economy and draws in just about every curious individual at one point or another. Highly processed junk foods can affect the brain the same way as drug abuse. As farfetched as this may seem, there is no doubt that this can lead to full-fledged food addiction for a myriad of folks that simply can’t cut back.

Young people face difficulty in modern generation

The pressures on Millennials are harder than past generations because of the negative stereotypes surrounding them. One pressure they face is to stay in a job at a company that seemingly doesn’t care about them.

Very few Milennial employees feel an attachment to their employer because their 401k retirement plan enables them to hop around from job to job in different companies when offered a raise.

'Date My Grandma' isn’t your typical reality dating series

How odd that we waste away our lives as we watch others live theirs via a boxed screen glued to our wall.

    It truly is the most interesting time to be alive—we tend to swamp ourselves in mindless garbage and cynically bogus reality television. We tend to view material that does know good for the betterment of our knowledge. We know that most of what we see is staged, and we know that just about everything is sold for our dreamy pleasure, yet we choose to cooperate.

Opposing inequality, and other heroic positions

Opposing inequality, and other heroic positions

Many would agree that while college campuses have always been a center of politically and culturally progressive thought, today’s students take a larger interest in the promotion of progressive politics than they have in the past.

Any person that possessed the virtue of reason could find no stance from which to combat the concerns that many express on these topics.

Mental illness: why you’re wrong and I’m right
