Vaccines for COVID-19 have become a highly contested subject in the American culture wars. Vaccines for COVID-19 have become a highly contested subject in the American culture wars. According to a survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, about 10.4% of the adult population claim they will most likely refuse to get vaccinated. Reasonings behind their refusal vary. Some are concerned about side effects, while others do not trust its safety or effectiveness. More colorful excuses often involve a global conspiracy spearheaded by Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci, who apparently seek world domination. Some people swore off the vaccine since it made their cousin’s friend from Trinidad’s testicles swell up, which ruined their marriage. On the surface, there appears to be a wide range of excuses to refuse the vaccine, but regardless of motivation, something that all anti-vaxxers have in common is that they are now a minority of the American public.

For a lot of students prior to the year 2020, the thought of going to school was a nightmare. More precisely, the act of waking up at the crack of dawn, racing to the bathroom and brushing your teeth, shoving two slices of bread down your throat to then hurl yourself into a classroom with people you barely liked was nauseating… and yet, there is something about this traditional style of education that I miss so much.
“Close your eyes and go to your happy place.” If you instinctively recoiled at that sentence, know that I feel your repulsion and understand it.
“These are strange and unprecedented times.” “I hope you’re staying safe.” “We’re all in this together!” Blah, blah, blah. Yeah, well, that’s not gonna stop me from calling out an asshole when I see one.
That 70s Show was one of the most binge-worthy shows on Netflix, until it was recently removed.
Like Aang on his glider, Netflix swooped in releasing all three seasons of “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” The release of the beloved show saved fans from quarantine induced despair.
