Get A Dose Of Plant Killers

First off, let’s talk about some linguistic ambiguity. If I were to say “Russian assassin”, you’d probably think of a former KGB agent who’s skilled with a rifle and can handle their vodka. But couldn’t that phrase also mean ‘someone who kills Russians’? As…

The Greatest Challenge In A World Of Jerks
