Why The Left4Dead Series Still Has An Extremely Active Fan Base

Zombies. Who doesn’t love them? They’re quite frankly terrifying yet the thought of an impending zombie apocalypse tends to get people pumped up for some reason. Pretty much everyone in this day and age, especially those who grew up in what could be considered the “zombie” era has a “Z-Day” plan. If you don’t, you’re in the minority and you should start thinking about what you’re going to do when the dead come back to life and start roaming the earth in flesh hungry mobs. Zombies are one of those things that have become such a popular concept that almost anything involving them gets a lot of attention. That may be why even the CDC had jumped aboard the zombie apocalypse bandwagon at one point. At least, let’s hope that’s why and that they don’t know something we don’t.

Dealing with a Husband That Smokes When You Don’t

They say when you love someone; you have to accept all their flaws along with their strengths. But what happens if what you can’t accept is their smoking habit? You could handle it when both of you were dating, maybe because you were too focused on how your partner’s lips looked around the cigarette, rather than thinking of any long-term ramifications of living with a smoker. When the both of you were dating, your partner probably took special care to make sure that you won’t be negatively affected by his smoking. He probably ate mints to make sure you wouldn’t smell the smoke in his breath, or sprayed deodorant to mask the stench of cigarettes on their clothes. But now that you have gotten hitched, the need to put their best foot forward to impress you is gone. You find yourself living with someone that has impossibly bad breath, and […]
