Would you rather turn into a pickle or a car?

Turning yourself into a pickle is generally a bad idea—unless you're Rick Sanchez of course, then nothing matters. The upside is you get to skip out on family therapy and live another day to avoid your feelings.

Should the U.S. remove statues of Christopher Columbus?

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue... pillaged the land he found, enslaved the people he encountered and orchestrated mass genocide. It doesn't take a genius to see why many people are calling for statues of Christopher Columbus to be removed from public areas, saying the statues glorify Columbus and his crimes.

Can cannabis be a study aid?

Marijuana use has been ubiquitous on college campuses for decades, but aside from using it for fun, some claim it helps them study.
