DontMineAtNight

Fried Friday

Be thankful that our Faculty Challenges haven’t included things like Ze Frank’s “Toilet Paper Challenge” and “When Office Tools Attack” challenge to his followers!

GPS

Today we want to add a little humor into your day with the following video clip: “What if your GPS acted like a typical user’s guide” which we …
