Mikhail Furman Are you moving home after graduation? If so, you’re not alone. According to The Huffington Post, 85 percent of college students moved back in with their parents upon finishing school in 2011.

The National Hockey League in Winnipeg. For some reason that has a familiar ring to it — oh that’s right, Winnipeg already had a team, but because they weren’t selling tickets, they lost the team to a more promising market: Phoenix (more specifically, Glendale).
