‘Saw’ Reboot Coming From Chris Rock (Yes, That Chris Rock)

The Saw movies always ended with a big twist, but here’s a real-life twist I don’t think anyone saw coming. Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock – is set to star in and produce a new Saw reboot, with franchise filmmaker Darren Lynn Bousman returning to direct. Rock came up with the idea for the film himself, and despite his presence, this isn’t going to be a comedy. Instead, the actor has cooked up something “really intense and twisted.” Ready for more Saw? Actually, let me amend that. Ready fo...

How To Pass An Exam Without Studying (Or Getting Caught)

Faced with a difficult exam, and given the chance to pass that exam without studying, what do you do? More importantly, how do you get away with it? Studying for exams blows hard — so why do we do it? Is it from some sense of honor? An ethical commitment to the institution of higher education? The belief that under the ideals of a meritocracy, the cream rises to the top and that hard work pays off? Pretty much nope. For some people, it’s more like they’re afraid of getting caught. Becau...
