A lot people will tell you that college is the best time you’ll ever have, but a new study suggests that the ages at which life is most enjoyable are actually 9 and 68. Researchers say that is likely because these ages represent a time when humans are more likely to make having fun a priority.
City officials in Chicago are considering a proposed “violence tax” on guns and ammunition in hopes that it will help shade in the gray areas of a $115 million black hole in the city’s budget and police the number of guns in circulation on the streets.
