Simpsons Comic Ends

In the month of October 2018, Bongo comics released Simpsons comic #245 with the caption above the title: “It’s a Simpsons send-off,” confirming that comic #245 was the last.  It was announced at ComicCon International in San Diego that the series would be ending along with the Spongebob comic series taking an “extended break” which leaves questions about Bongo’s future. Few know that the long running TV show The Simpsons had a comic series to go along with it. The comic series was a standalone series with a story having nothing to do with the TV show except for the occasional reference in certain episodes and comics. Despite the cancelation of the comics, the show will not be ending and shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. It is currently in its 30th season. There were rumors that the reason Simpsons comics are ending is because in 2018 Mad magazine…


Daredevil Season 3 Review

Warning: CONTAINS SPOILERS Daredevil is one of the best showS ever to be created. The season has a 93% Rotten Tomatoes score, which is well deserved. This show is part of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), which means it is in the same universe as Spider-Man, Iron Man and basically everyone you see in the Marvel movies. Ok, now that the facts are out of the way, time to get on to the review. So, I just finished Daredevil season 3 and it was a really good show. The entire season is based around the storyline of “Born Again” written by Frank Miller. The writers for the show did change the story from the comic a little bit but it worked out pretty well. Pretty much the biggest part that they changed about it is that they told Karen Page’s backstory like it was at the end of her story. I highly…


Third Parties in Politics

During the 2018 and 2016 elections you may have heard of some other parties that are not Democrat or Republican. You may have heard terms such as “Libertarian” or “Green Party.”  These parties are third parties in America’s government. Yes, believe it or not it’s not just Democrat or Republican, you have more of a choice. Now the third party that is the largest is the Libertarian Party. The concept of Libertarianism is having as little government (and as much freedom) as possible. You may have heard about their candidate in the 2016 election Gary Johnson who ran in the 2018 midterms and got 15.5% in the Senate Midterms. The next biggest third party in America would be the Green party. They are a left wing progressive party that is against war and violence and believes in Green politics. The idea of Green politics is creating a government that is…


FCS Waffles! Which is better?

The FCS waffle machine is a new edition to the cafeteria and everyone’s wondering which flavor of waffle to choose. Now, you may be confused, thinking, “Flavored waffles? What’s this?” Well, before you put your waffle mixture into the machine, you’re given a choice of flavor. Today we are going to see which one is considered better in students’ opinions, as well as our personal opinions on the two.   First off, here are some opinions by students who have used the waffle machine recently: Theo Schenck ‘24– “The normal waffle because that is what I ate yesterday. It’s easier to put toppings on (as well).” Theo Dankoff ‘24– “Normal, because it tastes better and has a better consistency.” Myles Roche ‘24 – “Normal. Strawberry is a really bad flavor to have in a waffle. It doesn’t go great to go with a waffle.” Lyle Goldader ‘24 – “When it…


CS:GO All-Time Greats

The one question many CS:GO fans ask is, “What is the best CS:GO team in history?” Many people will answer: the current Astralis roster or the old Fnatic roster. In this article we will be comparing what many people call the two best CS:GO teams in history.   Current Astralis Roster: dev1ce (AWPer/Rifler) dupreeh (Rifler/Entry Fragger) Xypn9x (Support/Rifler) gla1ve (IGL) Magisk (Rifler/Lurker)   Former Fnatic Roster: olofmeister (Lurker/Secondary AWPer) KRiMZ (Support) JW (AWPer) flusha (Rifler) Pronax (IGL) These two rosters are considered the best ever in CS:GO history. Of course it is hard to compare two rosters from different times, but we will try our best. We will be judging them on tournament placement and overall skill in the players. We will be counting the amount of tournament wins each roster had. Astralis has won eleven tournaments with its current roster; they have only had nine months to win these tournaments…


Game Preview: Fallout 76

Fallout 76 will be Bethesda Games’ first online game. Players may play individually or with a party of up to three others. Elements of previous Fallout games will be present and modified to work with the real-time game. The V.A.T.S. system—a mechanic first introduced in Fallout 3 that allows players to pause the game to target specific locations on an enemy’s body to attack—will be used in Fallout 76 as a real-time system, though it will still allow players to specify targets on an enemy’s body. All the servers for the game will be dedicated, with the player automatically allocated to one of them.While the game is expected to launch with public servers only, game director Todd Howard revealed plans for private servers to be introduced some time after the game’s launch. Howard described the delay as being necessary to allow Bethesda time to assure the stability of public servers….


FCS Fall Sports Recap

The first rotation of sports are over and went very well.  The choices for middle school fall sports were boys’ soccer, girls’ soccer, cross country, girls’ tennis, water polo, girls’ field hockey, and flag football. Every day from 2:00 to 3:00 pm everyone was deeply invested in something athletic. Each sport had both home and away games except flag football which plays games within the school. Kyle Brady (8th grade) who did boys’ soccer shared, “The first season is always a great experience, especially for the 6th graders.” With the year just starting it can be hard to get into the flow of having sports. 6th graders and many new students who are learning Friends’ Central’s way of sports handled it exceptionally well. Ms. Crowley stated, “Despite the challenges that were had with the weather, we had a successful fall season of athletics. Looking forward to continued success as we…


Announcing…Explosive Chickens!

Announcing the development of a new game by a fellow student! Explosive Chickens! The development of this game is taking place in the Makerspace by me, Konrad Smith. I plan to make this game purely in unreal engine, and I hope to release this game publicly once it is finished. Explosive Chickens is so early in development that there isn’t even an alpha, there isn’t even a player model, don’t expect to play this game any time soon.   What is Explosive Chickens? Explosive Chickens is going to be a multiplayer game. 20 people dropped into a small arena with intense music playing, fighting to be the last one standing using only stupid and inefficient weapons of mass destruction. Every weapon is some silly form of explosive, from explosive chickens to disco mines, and even taser teddy bears. The game is purposely confined into a small area to make sure…



Mega Man 11 Review

Includes Spoilers Mega Man 11 is the latest instalment in the Mega Man series. It features the new mechanic, and really, the coolest feature in a Mega Man game to date: the “double gear system”. This allows you to either “Speed up”(which is really slowing time), or “Power up” which makes your attacks stronger. There is a third mode after you’re down to around 4 bars of health you unlock Overdrive which activates both Power and Speed and gives a strong attack but after the timer ends everything is disabled for a long time. This game has several difficulty levels: Newcomer for noobs like me or people who have never played a Mega man game, Casual for players who want a small challenge, Normal for a real challenge, and Superhero in the game’s own words “only the truest, most hardcore fans need apply.  That is scary hard. The robot bosses…
