Vince McMahon’s New ‘Muscle & Fitness’ Cover Make Me Scared of Him Even MORE…

FEAR THE OWNER/CEO OF WORLD WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT!!!

For Under $500, Two College Students Built A Tiny House

Amy Andrews and Ethan Van Kooten built this tiny home almost entirely from scrap materials.Ladies and gentlemen, pull out your manilla folders and go ahead and file this story under the topic/category of “Inspirational Undertakings”. Two college students from Central College spent approximately 500 hours building this small, sustainable house in Iowa. They used any materials they could find and put to some sort of use, as well as receiving assistance of one father who knows his way around tools, and bought as little materials as possible during the building process.
