Movies are a way for us to step away from reality, and escape into a world of suspended disbelief.

We all have little quirks, and routines to which we attribute good or bad fortune. Even if you don’t believe in superstitions, you most likely can’t resist knocking on wood if someone tells you that you will have bad luck if you don’t. Victoria and Graig discuss why we are the way we are, and have the need to control things we can’t. They also take a look at some people who go above and beyond to either dispel or bolster these beliefs.
There have been lots of awesome women throughout history, many of whom went unappreciated for one reason or another *cough* men *cough.* In honor of International Women’s Day, Victoria and Graig take a look back at some ladies whose contribution to history was anything but trivial in this episode of “Short but Pointless.”
Victoria and Graig take a look at some things we love and hang on to, for no reason other than tradition. Most of the time we don’t even know why these things mean so much to us, but we will find out why they shouldn’t. Victoria puts Pluto on blast on this week’s episode of “Short but Pointless.”
