20 Halloween Pranks and Tips for Evil, Evil PeopleWell, Halloween is officially one week away, and let me tell you, I’m just quivering with excitement. I mean, what’s not to love about Halloween? It’s the only time of the year where you’re allowed to engage in unlawful soliciting, stay out past curfew, assume a false identity and accept candy from complete strangers in violation of the cardinal rule of parents everywhere. But the best part about Halloween to me is the pranks. Pranks, people. What greater joy is there on Halloween night than pulling pranks? I’ve always felt drawn more to the “trick” part of trick-or-treating, ever since I was a boy. So to help you make sure your Halloween is memorable and prove once again that I am an absolutely terrible human being, I’m going to share some of my favorite prank ideas, tips and tricks with you.20 Halloween Pranks and Tips for Evil, Evil People by Agawaer
Let the record show that I regret absolutely nothing.

Ever Hear Of...Albert Goering?Thrice hurrah and greetings, kids! Ever Hear Of is back once again to serve you up a steaming platter of piping-hot history, drizzled liberally with awesome sauce with a generous portion of epicness on the side! And I hope you’ve brought along enough napkins, because in this latest and greatest installment we’re going to take a look at one of the great unsung heroes of the Second World War. A man with an infamous last name whose own brother was one of Hitler’s inner circle An individual of such enormous bravery and courage that Oscar Schindler would have given him a fist-bump of approval. A man who said “no” to Nazism right from the start, collaborated with local anti-Nazi resistance fighters after getting a cushy job in German-occupied Czechoslovakia, and who used his big bro’s connections within the Nazi party at the risk of his own life to save hundreds of people from being shipped off to fucking Auschwitz and shit. And he did it allEver Hear Of...Albert Goering? by Agawaer
What Have the Romans Ever Done for Us?The other day, I was watching the famous "What have the Romans ever done for us?" Monty Python skit on Youtube, and I decided to try and write an updated version of the dialogue to better reflect the modern age, just for kicks and giggles.What Have the Romans Ever Done for Us? by Agawaer
“What have the Americans ever given us in return?"
“…Oh. Well, they did give us that, yeah.”
“And cell phones!”
“Oh, yeah, cell phones! Remember what communication used to be like?”
“Yeah, I’ll grant you, affordable cars and cell phones are two things the Americans have done—"
“And the Internet!”
“Well yeah, obviously the Internet. I mean, the internet goes without saying, doesn’t it? But apart from affordable cars, cell phones and the Internet—"
Ever Hear Of..Jan Sobieski and the Winged Hussars?Wake up and smell the history, kids! It’s time once again for another edition of Ever Hear Of, the periodical that makes history fun and exciting by exploring the badass, ridiculous or downright weird historical figures you’ve probably never heard of before. And today, we’re going to talk about some guys from a place that’s had a hard run of luck lately: Poland.Ever Hear Of..Jan Sobieski and the Winged Hussars? by Agawaer
Yes, Poland. Poland, like the Philippines, has had a pretty rough couple of centuries. It had a good thing going with its Commonwealth until the other European nations ganged up on it and carved it up like a fucking apple pie. It was occupied by the Nazis and then by the Soviets, which is kind of like beating brain cancer only to find out you’ve contracted the goddamn Ebola virus. And nowadays they’re living in a state of perpetual anxiety courtesy of Mr. Vladdie Putin, who has cemented his reputation as one of the biggest assholes in modern international politics (FYI, don’t wor

The Apothecarys AlchemyAll poetry is but lonely soliloquy—The Apothecarys Alchemy by Shinato-Kawasaki
Unbinding the will teasingly—
An ethereal elasticity
Incarcerated in corporeality,
And shackled by its sophistry.
Despite this inevitability,
“Words, words, words” still spill mercilessly—
Rhetoric with a pitiable tenacity
To emulate transcendent veracity.
Alas! Have ye no pity?
The tyranny of thy majesty
Greedily ties every rhyme to thee—
Pacified only by lyrical impossibilities;
Aye, thy symmetric sorcery
Seizes me subliminally—
Slyly raiding every creative capacity
Till it’s fully empty.
And with happy sincerity
I submit loyally to royalty;
For I owe thee
And thine involuntary pharmacy
Crafting miracles from metaphysical maladies.
Thus, to Rationality,
I say, cease and let it be—
Quit poetic discovery
And resign to artistic self-servility.
Indeed, for comparatively,
Letters are but earthly,
Yet heavenly is this L.O.V.E.
Morning VerseThe morning makes me recklessMorning Verse by QuiEstInLiteris
with the smell of coffee curling
through my veins in electric
and the pen betwixt my fingertips
shooting feelers through my brain,
and a single dying star
burning in the dawn-green
The morning makes me restless
with the promise of the day
and the breath of open windows
and the smooth relief of
so in the morning, like a child
I turn my words in dances.
