SPECIAL REPORT: The Moon

Each night, millions of Americans stare up into the cosmos while succumbing to a bout of depressing existential dread. Often they will see an object that sometimes appears as an orb, sometimes as a sliver, and sometimes as a “gibbous,” which is not a type of ape. This object is called “The Moon,” and it is the most mysterious thing that can be found in the night sky, besides that constellation that looks like Donald Trump’s neck.

Every civilization in human history has had their own theory about what the Moon is. The ancient Egyptians, for example, believed the Moon was a god who controlled the night, the oceans, and menstruation. Ancient Floridians also worshipped the Moon, believing it to be a giant egg out of which hatched hundreds of swamp alligators every thirty days. And the Mayans believed that the Moon is just a giant rock that accreted with the Earth after a planetoid collided with our planet nearly four and a half billion years ago. We now know, however, that the Moon is actually one of God’s testicles that was severed during one of his many battles to protect us against super-powerful Nazi space aliens.

Mankind’s fascination with the Moon has driven some of the greatest achievements in the history of science. During the Cold War, the United States and Russia competed to become the first nation to put humans on the Moon in what became known as the “Space Race,” which is also the name of those aforementioned Nazi space aliens. Each country had its own plans with the Moon; Russia wanted to paint the lifeless rock red to have a constant reminder of communistic might orbiting over everyone’s heads, while America simply wanted to open up a McDonald’s on it.

As with education, healthcare, happiness, and general quality of life, America proved itself to be “Number One” by making it to the Moon first. Astronauts Lance Armstrong, Buzz Alderaan, and The Third One are still honored today for being the first men to have successfully walked on an entirely different world and left their stuff on it, such as a rover that needs to be gassed up, a flag that yearns for someone to pledge their allegiance to, and Armstrong’s wallet.

You might be thinking something like, “I don’t really care about the Moon because it doesn’t affect my daily life,” or, “maybe if I scramble up into that tree at nighttime I’ll be able to see into her bathroom window without her seeing me.” However, scientists would say that you’re wrong. The Moon affects virtually every part of our daily lives. It affects the Tides, by which I mean it influences your decision on which kind of Tide detergent you use. It affects wherewolves, by which I mean you can tell where wolves are if they howl at the Moon near you. It also affects your emo-shins, by which I mean that those who belong to emo, goth, scene, and other such youth fads can feel pressure in their lower legs whenever the Moon is overhead.

We might never return to the Moon, and we might never return the Moon to a safe distance away from humans so that it can no longer affect our brains with its moon rays. All that can be said for sure is that science won’t stop until it uncovers all of the Moon’s secrets and then leaks them to TMZ.

Killer Advice #03 – How Do I Handle a Cheating Spouse?

I’m back! My name is Brittany von Beuren and your reading Killer Advice where I help you threw any tough relationship issues or life problems. I answer your questions on the first and third thursday of every month!

This weak’s question comes form Katrina Bucchanon of Havorfield, Delaware. She writes…

 

Question: “Dear Brittany, I’m worried that my husband might be cheating on me. He’s been staying late at work a lot more than usual but when I call his office he’s never there. Charges for expensive things I can’t account for have been appearing on his credit card bill and he becomes defensive whenever I ask to see who he’s texting all the time. We’ve been happily married for 6 years… or so I thought. Do you think he could be cheating on me? If so, how do you think I should handle the situation?”

 

Answer: Hey Katrina, thanks for coming to me for help. I know this has to be dificult but its okay because I’m here to help!

Okay, so yeah he’s definitely cheatting on you. I’ve seen this sort of thing hapen to many people before, including me. I’ve been both the one getting cheated on and the one getting cheated with so I can tell you both sides of the situation.

Most likely the other woman doesnt even know about you. I cant even tell you how many times a guy has told me his wedding ring was just an engagment ring I fell for it. My point is that you cant see yourself as the only victim here. Cheatting always has two victims and one asshole, and the asshole is usualy the guy in my experiense.

That being siad you defnitly need too confront him. I’ve tried to let things like that go nd not bother me but it never works. The first time I stud up for myself in that way was back when I was still a teenager in florida. Back then my mom and I were always competing over the same guys but there were times when she just wooden’t listen. Even on times we agree’d that serten men were mine she stole them from me anyway because lets be honest shes a total bitch. So in retailation over this one coach at my highschool I stole her house and drove it into the middle of the swamp. Her houses tires got caught in mud and she was stuck their for weeks lmao. Thats when I could aford my own home and drive it up state.

But yea you see what I’m getting at. Dont be afraid to just stand up for your self and cut a hoe down when she needs to be. Put spiders in her shampoo or start a fire in her living room so she knows that hes you’re man and you will fight for whats yours. And yea its probably your husbands fault but like sometimes its easyer to just take down a woman and not a man, like show him that if he hurts you again your not afraid of like stabing someone.

 

Thats all the time I have for now! I’ll be back in two weeks, make sure you follow me on Twitter and you can ask me questions there, or submit your questions in the comments of this post and I might pick yours to answer! Bye for now 🙂 ❤
