Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in Video on Thursday 21 August 2014

We love this video by our friends at College Humor which casts us back to our earliest days of trying to work out where the heck we came from and what it all had to do with birds and bees. Birds and bees, really? It seems that sex education had a long path to follow […]

Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in Video on Thursday 21 August 2014
