1492. The arrival of Columbus in the Caribbean changed everything for the people already living there (State Archives of Florida)
Given the conquests and consequences we see unfolding every day in the Middle East, now is a good time to look at the timeless reality of what happens to people who are in the way.
Christopher Columbus never set foot in the land that would become the United States of America. In fact, he never even saw it.
His four voyages took him to the Caribbean, a small detour to Central America, and a hop to the north-east coast of Venezuela. He had no idea th

IRS Scarier Than Ever Today, The World Mud reports on new government laws and policies that make the IRS scarier than ever.IRS Scarier Than Ever1 month ago in Comedy
First off the IRS now has a direct say and hand in any policy that may affect how much tax revenue comes in the IRS. Already some counties that have been dry for over 100 years have find their dry laws forcibly rendered invalid by the pen stroke of a IRS official many miles away. The DEA have also found that there are now certain drug dealers with special licenses from the IRS providing immunity from seizures and arrest; which brings us to our next part.
The IRS is also giving out special licenses allowing those with them to commit finance related crimes like Identity theft, drug dealing, and insider trading; provided they pay half their illicit profits to the IRS as a special "prosecution immunity tax". However once they stop paying or aren't officially licensed; the IRS will come after them like a ton of bricks. Enron-like corporate practices are allowed but th
I still love you ... and I miss you ...I mess up one time, just once, and I end up losing one of my closest friends … just one time .. while others are given a lot of chances to redeem themselves, only for them to repeat the same mistakes again .. Heck, the mistakes those people made were actually worse than mine … But being the Devil’s advocate, people expect a Hell of a lot more from me. I am not an angel, nobody is, so please stop placing me on the highest pedestal when it comes to your expectations of me. That isn’t right. That is also why I did not want to apologize to you. I am still reluctant to apologize to you, because I often felt that ..I still love you ... and I miss you ...3 days ago in Emotional

"Yep. Although I'm not so little anymore." Kayla smiled before she looked at her friends.
"I met Uncle when I was 10 years old. He helped me protect my cousin when he found himself up against an evil villain known as Eon. Eon was powerful and dying. He wanted both Ben and the Omnitrix prototype that Ben was wearing at the time. Every time he went near Ben, he would touch the prototype in order to add his DNA to the watch so that when the time came, Ben would transform into him and then unleash a whole army of Chronians who wanted to take over Earth." Kayla began to explain before she was interupted by Jackie.
"Kayla, what are you doing?" Jackie worringly asked Kayla.
"Don't worry Uncle Jackie, we know everything about the Omnitrix and the Plumbers." C.P. told his uncle causing Kayla to smile at her boyfriend before she continued her story.
"After Grandpa Max and Grandpa Spencer learned that Eon was back and after Ben, they took us to an old Plumber's base unde

The long-haired girl dug at the earth, hair tied back to keep it out of her eyes. Her family’s garden had to be kept in check, and that was her job. In no way would Yao ever settle for anything less than excellent. Her oldest brother, Yao, was rather fond of being called teacher, or big brother. Then there was small, strong, and silent Kiku. Li Xiao, surly and close to Yao. There was Im Yong, obsessed with breasts, oddly, and believed wholeheartedly that Kiku had them. Also Neeraj, who was rather Indian-prince-like in aura. There was Mei, her closest companion, maybe after Kasem. All her siblings were different nationalities. It was an... interesting arrangement. But then there was also her. Plain, bland, Vietnamese her.
She surveyed their garden. It was beautiful and lush, circling their house, which was placed carefully on the outskirts of the city, so there wouldn’t be much noise, and more space. The garden was peppered with heavy stone lanterns, and boa

Slenderman's Own Editorial Today is Halloween, The World Mud wants to do something special. An interview with a popular monster figure. What better way to do that than with one all over the Internet.Slenderman's Own Editorial1 month ago in Comedy
The World Mud broadcasted live from a forest and try to interview Slenderman. But first we must bait him; we start with a Checker's Baconzilla burger, plop it on the forest floor with a note that reads "To Slenderman, from A Loving Fan". After a few minutes he appeared.
We interviewed him and he spoke about how he saw Richard Matt and David Sweat going through a forest one day; and how he saw a moonshiner and personally protected him from authorities by slowly picking them off and driving the lone survivor off. He ended the interview with the words "never touch Slendy's moonshine"
Slender thanked us and departed; thus we at the World Mud are proud to say we safely interviewed him. Thanks to the help of Rasputnik who would kill him if he tried to take out The World
