10 Things NOT to Buy Your College Bound Kid

Got a kid you’ll be dropping off at college this semester? Avoid the cliche of buying these items. The probability of them using these things are nill. [They'll learn probabilities in their math class.]

 

10. A printer.

Most assignments can be emailed. Most colleges have computer labs with low cost printing.

 

 

9. Tablet

The best thing to take notes with is an old fashioned laptop PC. Don’t waste your time with this one.

 

 

8. Expensive Bedding

 

What they have already is just fine. It will be destroyed by roommates anyway. Wait until after college to surprise them with Egyptian Cotton 900 thread count sheets.

 

 

7. HD TV

Let’s face it. They’ll netflix it, hulu it, or steal it. On their laptop.

 

 

6. An Iron

 

Moms. You’ll do their laundry. You’ll iron anything on their trips home. Buy yourself a new set!

 

 

5. Clothes.

Two words: Freshman 15.

 

 

4. High End Lap top

Most students won’t use all the processing power in their laptops for tasks such as word processing, social media.

3. Mini Fridge

Who seriously used this after college?

2. External Hard Drive

Chances are they know about cloud. And they’ll have a hard drive connected to the university most likely.

1. New iPhone

Don’t. Don’t do it. Wait till Christmas. Or pass their exams. Which ever comes first.

America’s Got Talent’s Top Acts

 

Last night, I almost threw my phone at the tv. While watching America’s Got Talent, one of my favorite male singers didn’t make the cut.

 

That’s Justin Rhodes. He’s a singer. A really good singer.

 

 

 

Aparently, his final audition was crap, according to the judges.

 

 

Sad Miley

happy clap

 

BUT NO! HE WAS CUT!

 

What Did You Say?

 

He was cut! But THIS guy made it through….

 

 

 

Woah!

OMG WHAT?

Gasp

 

Yup. Me, too. Bad call, America’s Got Talent Judges. #BringJustinBack

The 13-year-old boy was excited Wednesday, because he was finally old enough to stay home alone. However, the day didn’t go as planned. He usually wears hearing aids but didn’t have them in as he napped, so he didn’t hear the home’s smoke alarms

As the fire grew, Lamb’s 2-year-old pit bull named Ace licked his face, waking him up to a room full of smoke.

“My dog licked my face and woke me up,” Lamb said. “I woke up and the entire house was covered with smoke and we ran out in the backyard.”

Ace and the boy both made it outside safely. Now Ace is being hailed as a hero. And rightly so. This dog deserves the biggest steak out there!

Six Californias?

Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper will submit signatures on Tuesday to put a measure that would split California in six separate states.

 

According to the “Six Californias” plan, each of the six states would have its own government and own collection of elected officials, including congressional representatives.
Much of the Bay Area, including Santa Cruz and Monterey, would become the state of Silicon Valley under the proposal. The northernmost counties would become Jefferson; some North Bay counties would become part of North California, an area that stretches through Sacramento to the Sierra; Stockton, Fresno and Bakersfield would be among Central California’s largest cities; Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara would end up in West California; and San Diego would become the major city in South California.

 

 

What are your thoughts? Should we divide Indiana into different states?
