Climate change is totes a hoax, right?

According to some people, it has always been a hoax.

But recent evidence continues to point toward a conclusion that the global climate is changing at an even faster rate than before.


Evidence for climate change is staggering. From consistent polar vortexes every winter to a piece of the Antarctic ice shelf the size of Manhattan having melted already, the signs are unmistakable and everywhere.






In the most recent example of "climate change is absolutely real you clods," Colorado faced back to back days from completely conflicting seasons.

First came the warm day.





But the promise of warmth was marred by a snow forecast.

Most people couldn't believe it:






But come the snow did.





The midwest was afflicted with blizzard conditions as far north as the Dakotas and Minnesota, and as far east as Nebraska.

Over one thousand flights were canceled because of the storm, which brought winds over 100 mph to the people affected.

And once any built up snow melts, the already flooded rivers, responsible for millions of dollars worth of loss and damages in the midwest this season, may flood even further.






Should climate change be allowed to progress, it will continue to bring on catastrophic disasters like this.

Sometimes, all at once.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
