Family Murders

A man without a soul or a moment of anger?


Chris Watts is known as someone who makes many people think twice about whether they really wish to abolish the death penalty. So let’s discuss who he was and what he did before we get to the truly disturbing matter.

Christopher Lee Watts was born May 16, 1985, in Spring Lake, North Carolina. Shannan Rzucek, his future wife, was also a North Carolina native, with her origins in Aberdeen.

Learn about the psychology behind language and how to save your relationship on time.

Many signs of an ending relationship occur within the last weeks when it’s all too late. However, the increased usage of one word occurs early enough to give you time to salvage it, so save your relationship before it’s too late!

The usual signs of a doomed relationship and why they’re unreliable

These are the three most common signs of a failing relationship named by self-proclaimed “experts”:

  • Less time spent together
  • Less effort on dates

Can you spot what all of these factors have in common? They are conscious behaviors, which means someone can repress them.

True Crime & Mysteries

One of the greatest mysteries of aviation history still remains to this day and there is barely any evidence.

In 1971, a middle-aged man hijacked a Northwest Airlines flight en route for Seattle, Washington. The man identified himself as Dan Cooper and after extorting $200,000, he parachuted from the aircraft, never to be seen again.

The Hijacking

November 24, 1971. A man with a briefcase walks into Portland International Airport and uses cash to purchase a one-way ticket to Seattle, Washington. He identifies himself as Dan Cooper and soon boards Northwest Airlines Flight 305 along with 36 other passengers and 6 crew members.

Onboard, Cooper picks a middle seat in the last row, right cabin side. In the 1970s, smoking inside of an aircraft was still permitted, so he smokes a cigarette and has a drink. …


We all know that meeting our partner’s family can make or break a relationship.

Especially when things get truly serious, a good relationship with your partner’s family is almost as crucial as the relationship with themselves. So here’s what fleeing from my boyfriend’s house the morning after made me realize about that fabled moment.

Our Background Story

My boyfriend and I got together on Valentine’s Day of 2021, which means we’ve been together for roughly two months at the time I’m writing this. His parents split up when he was nine years old, and he’s been living with his mom ever since, but he still has a good relationship with his father. …


On average, 250 babies are being born every minute. 72 of those are born in Sub-Saharan Africa, a region that can hardly sustain itself. Droughts that lead to failed harvests and other pressing issues prevent the population from being able to survive without hunger and illnesses. According to the United Nations, 165 million children worldwide are chronically malnourished, over 75% of these children are born in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. With that amount of starving children and their parents, and local crops often being yieldless and not enough to fill their stomachs, isn’t it time for a new approach?

Mental Health

And no, I am not talking about therapy or suicide helplines.

I am talking about taking away the means of suicide.

Many people think that suicidal people are automatically out of danger as soon as you take away their ropes, knives, access to open roofs of high buildings, (lethally) overdosable meds, etc., as if they would magically make any suicidal thoughts or ideation disappear. But that’s simply not correct. Being suicidal means being in a trapped state of mind, perceiving nothing but darkness around oneself, and feeling like you’re going insane, and the feelings are not caused by the presence of items you could harm or potentially kill yourself with.
