I recommend you start the video and then read the […]

The fine folks over at Mental Floss have an article you should read, if you’re into that sort of thing, and why are you here if you’re not? As it turns out, way back in the Before Time (aka 1963), there was a young man named Bruce McAllister who was tired of arguing with his […]
