Daisy found this "throne" in a local Walmart. I had one a long time ago when I was in high school. This one however is set up to be more of a proper chair instead of a just a big bag shape. 

Favorite Quotes: Lie Traveling Across the Globe

"A lie travels around the globe while the truth is putting on its shoes."

-Author disputed

In the digital age of information, something can happen from the other side of the world and we know within minutes if not seconds of it happening. However it's very common (especially at first) for the first wave of information to be inaccurate. Then you have the total liars who distort the truth to further a purpose, often political. Fake news was rampant during the 2016 election season, but it's one thing for trolls to do such a thing on social media. It's another thing when the President of the United States lies constantly and has the audacity to call the media fake.    

Fact of the Day: Oregon Trail Generation

The Oregon Trail generation or Xennials, is a micro generation that serves as gap between Generation X and Millennials (Gen Y) as many members who were born between the late 70's and early 80's don't generally meet the qualifications of either of the two main generations. The Oregon Trail name is because many in this micro-generation played Oregon Trail in school computer labs and grew up before the internet and social media changed society forever.
