Respect our Furry Friends

Violent actions toward harmless animals makes my stomach churn. Why would anyone even think about laying a hand on a heartwarming dog or cat? They are there to love you unconditionally, but still some people abuse them. They are there for you through the ups and downs of life. Also, dogs are there for...

Senioritis

Ever since kindergarten, seniors have worked hard to attain their status. So it is only appropriate that they should not have to continue working after college acceptance. The stress of school should instead be replaced with college preparation. Grades no longer matter, yet seniors are still expected...

The Grading System Must Go

When I was a kid, I came home from school, opened my Spiderman backpack, and did my homework. The next day, I came into school and turned in the homework. The teacher graded it and I usually got a good grade. Now, with this new grading system, homework is not graded! Before, there was a lot of motivation...

Ban the Block

You begin research for an assignment, but as soon as you click on what looks like a helpful website…NOPE. CONTENT BLOCKED. You were just trying to see how cells reproduce… but apparently that’s inappropriate. You were just trying to understand how the male sea horse gives birth… but apparently...

Girl Power

I am sick and tired of women being judged as less athletic just because they are women. Women are just as capable as men at playing sports, as shown by the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team. The USWNT has more championships than the men’s team AND work just as hard. The women’s team is just as...

The Secret of Effective Communication

Filed under 100 Word Rants

No human likes to take orders, being told what to do, when to do it, how they should do it, and where they should do it. Everyone would rather to make their own decisions, so never demand anything from another person.  Never directly give anyone an order because doing this makes it seem as if you are...

Shut Up

Dear loud people, stop. Stop screaming every word that comes out of your mouth. Stop yelling everything that could be easily heard 10 notches down. Stop being so obnoxious. You're talking to someone who is two feet away from you, so why are you talking so loudly? Why do you want the whole room to ...

Steelers or Bumblebees?

Dennis Nazarov, Assistant Sports Editor

Filed under 100 Word Rants

Yellow is one of my least favorite colors. Not because I do not like the color, but because it is the main color of the Pittsburgh Steelers. I hate the Steelers. Their jerseys are ugly. When they wear their black and yellow striped throwback jerseys, I ask myself: are those football players or are those...

Stop Animal Cruelty

Kelsey Kessler, Assitant Opinion Editor

Filed under 100 Word Rants

When buying a new product, I always make sure to determine if the company tests their products on animals. If they do, I will not buy that product. But if they do not test on animals, then I will buy the product, granted that I like the product. Why do companies test on animals? After all, we are all...

Right vs. Wrong

Do you know the difference between right and wrong? To some, this may seem like a simple question. But in truth, the answer is much more complicated than one holds it to be. Every day of our lives, we witness our peers commit despicable actions which bring disgrace to humanity, or so we think. Influenced...

Not My Life

My life. People say “this is my life. I am in control and I can do whatever I desire.” Those are the lucky people. Limitations. There are limitations everywhere that make the phrase, “my life”, an unreachable dream. My life has to watch out for the needs of family and has to fit what they believe...

Perfection: A Small Word with Great Meaning

Kayla Ain, Assistant Doubletruck Editor
February 10, 2017
Filed under 100 Word Rants

Perfection is such a simple word in the English language but holds a great deal of meaning. People today strive for this concept that does not exist because everyone has different perspectives and ideas. This is an idea that society exaggerates and wants people to reach even though there will never be...
