On a small campus like Queen’s, there is always a sense of expected unexpectedness when you happen to see the same people every day.

The ’90s: an era of awful

Then this column is for you. Postscript has gathered the prime pricelessly awful movies you might actively condemn in public, but enjoy very furtively in the privacy of your own home.Continue...

A front-row seat for the Last Lecture on Earth

Did you know that even though the theory of evolution dominates academia, 47 per cent of Americans are creationists, and creation science is taught in 15-20 per cent of U.S. schools? How about the fact that 40 per cent of Americans believe human beings were formed in the exact state we are now, or that 52 percent believe dinosaurs co-existed with humans?Continue...
