On Monday, Ivanka Trump dropped in on Connecticut high school Norwalk Early College Academy, much to the chagrin of parents who say they should have been informed that their children would be coming in contact with a Trump. Some students were pulled from the classroom—but shouldn’t they have been allowed to savage her…
When I was 19, everything I did was stupid. I skipped class. I smoked Marlboro 27s. I snuck rum into a children’s movie and drank it out of a garbage bag.

Teen idol Malia Obama reportedly lost her phone while dancing to The Killers at Lollapalooza on Saturday night, which is a very 19-year-old American thing to do. Another 19-year-old American thing to do is schlep to the nearest Apple Store thinking it’ll be easy to get a new phone, only to be told it’s not under your…

Dunkirk is Christopher Nolan’s brutal thriller about World War II’s Dunkirk evacuation, a bleak moment in which civilian boats were dispatched to rescue hundreds of thousands of British and French soldiers stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk, France.
