Akika Says


Ivan Fandino, a 36 year old matador has recently died in the ring - he had tripped on his cape and the bull gored him, piercing his lung, leading to death in the ambulance afterward. Naturally, the internet had a few things to say, namely that he was a horrible jerk who deserved what he got. I...

Shitty housemate situations – we’ve all been there. The guy who refuses to do literally any form of cleaning or tidying up after himself. The girl who never pays her bills on time yet suspiciously always has money to go out and get herself skanky shit from Supre to go clubbing every week. The...

Ever meet someone incredible at a club? Possibly you end up going home with them. Perhaps you end up staying up all night. And staying in bed all day the next day talking. And then you stay another night. And spend another half a day in bed talking, before remembering that you did have a life...
