  • Manatee Challenge Blood on the Water
    The punch hit me hard right in the gut, a vicious uppercut that made each of my internal organs take turns slamming into my ribcage. The gun flew out of my hands and disappeared into the boat's wake. [...]

    I smile to myself. It is actually fortunate that there are bandages covering my entire face. This way the officer cannot detect any microexpressions on my features that may indicate I am lying. [...]
  • The boat ahead of us smashed through the waves at full speed. We were gaining on them, despite their head start. We had less weight on board, since they were hauling a manatee and all. [...]

    We All Have Jury Duty

    June 28, 2016 // 0 Comments

    In an ideal world, we here at The Double Thumb would maintain something of a regular posting schedule. Unfortunately, the world as we know it is ripe with despair and destruction. [...]

    Fight Club Part 2: The First Punch

    June 21, 2016 // 8 Comments

    He stands only a couple inches taller than me, but the difference feels like miles. It occurs to me that I have never been in a fight before. And yet here I am, standing against this Corinthian column of muscle and sinew. [...]
  • Florida Manatee Challenge Part 17
    By now the majority of our surroundings were on fire. This warehouse was ripe for it. The explosions had lit up the numerous boxes and clutter, the flames racing to contaminate adjacent shelves. The whole warehouse was doomed. I said, "Yo, this is f***ing awesome!" [...]
  • I Went to a Donald Trump rally
    I went to this thing out of sheer curiosity. This entire election cycle I've known Trump as nothing more than a television character. A cartoon. I wanted to go and see if the media is just blowing everything out of proportion. Turns out they aren't. [...]
  • Moo satanic cow game
    The videogame industry is often looked down upon by mainstream pundits as being childish and lacking artistic vision. Then, from time to time, there comes a game that extravagantly challenges that notion. [...]

    I Am Starting My Own Fight Club

    May 26, 2016 // 8 Comments

    Since I plan to model my life around a book I had better make it something exciting. Something particularly visceral. Something punchy. Perhaps, in this case, the obvious choice is the best one. [...]
  • Manatee Challenge Part 16
    Bros don't cry. No way, no how. But something happens when you're betrayed by your fellow bro. You feel it. It starts deep down in your finely-toned core and works its way out. It ain't crying. It's liquid testosterone. [...]

    It is Time to Have a Novel Experience

    May 19, 2016 // 4 Comments

    I have grown tired of the endless desert of dry literary analysis. I've collapsed, my throat parched for something different. Something refreshing. [...]
  • Unsponsored Content Bill O'Reilly
    There is no doubt that Bill O'Reilly is a polarizing figure. We here at the Double Thumb try to remain politically neutral, yet we still believe that the chance of getting paid by a major publisher to promote this book far outweighs any attempt at moral objectivity. [...]
  • There I was, a travel blogger, accompanied by a zookeeper and four vaguely-foreign former captives. Together we were the unwavering legion of three hundred Spartans and this dark, dirty room inside of a villainous warehouse was our Thermopylae. [...]
  • I Made a Peanut Butter Sandwich That Ruined a Child's Day
    My nephew is staying over at my house while my sister and her husband are out of town. For a while I got away with feeding the kid raw vegetables and saltines, but three days in I figured it might be time to cook something. [...]

    Unsponsored Content

    May 5, 2016 // 0 Comments

    So much of what we do here revolves around unfiltered experiences. Our writers must be free to discuss their opinions openly, without the worry that some mega corporation will pull away the teat if they say the wrong thing about its product. [...]
  • Manatee Challenge Death, Prison, and the Ladies
    I lay there, blood pouring out of my neck, a simple metal door the only thing separating me from an armed militia responsible for countless human rights violations. In my professional opinion, I'd be dead in a matter of minutes. [...]

    I Somehow Managed to Screw Up Ham and Eggs

    April 28, 2016 // 9 Comments

    There’s really no excuse for this kind of outcome, other than my own perpetual incompetence. But that’s life isn’t it? A series of mistakes followed by lessons learned. Yes, sometimes your food doesn’t come out the way you want it. We adapt, we grow, and we try to move on. [...]
  • Manatee Challenge Crate and Gunfire
    It's tempting to think, when you find yourself imprisoned in a giant crate inside the warehouse of human traffickers, that you've hit rock bottom. But that's pretty shortsighted. Chances are, much worse things are still to come. [...]

    The Beginning of My Kitchen Failures

    April 19, 2016 // 1 Comment

    If, years ago, you had told my college-age self that one day she would be getting paid to write a food and cocktail recipe column, she would have laughed right in your face and turned away to do another four bong hits. [...]
  • Manatee Challenge Nefarious Plot
    All we had to do was sneak into the building, subdue the dozen or so armed smugglers roaming about, murder Sid, and then take back my manatee. Easy. [...]

    A Life or Death Decision About Toothpaste

    April 12, 2016 // 1 Comment

    It was the smell that woke me. A putrid array of filth and decay assaulted my nostrils, so rancid that it was sticky and palpable. In a flash of groggy horror, I realized what was causing such a stench: I had not brushed my teeth in days. [...]

    Fun Prank Cocktails for April Fools’ Day

    March 31, 2016 // 6 Comments

    Trust me, I know a thing or two about April Fools. I have a great sense of humor. One time, I laughed for six straight hours. My ex even broke up with me halfway through and I still kept laughing! That's how dedicated to jokin' around I am. [...]
  • Grand Theft Auto Manatee Challenge
    "So you partner with a notorious human trafficker to steal an infant manatee, release a vicious bear from its cage, psuedo-kidnap a woman and fight her in your van, then steal some innocent guy's car and break his stuff? At what point during any of this do you think you're the good guy here?” [...]
  • Megalodon
    The thing was still down there, poking at me. I plunged my arm into the water after it, trying to mash it in my fingers. If I was gonna be dragged down to the depths by some Kraken then I planned on taking it to hell with me. [...]
  • Sunshine Skyway, Florida Manatee Challenge
    For what it's worth, I still felt relatively confident about our chances of survival. Then I took one peek over the edge and completely changed my mind. [...]
  • Zootopia
    Zootopia is a Disney movie about adorable talking animals living in harmony. It's also about crack cocaine and conspiracy theories. Seriously. [...]
  • Florida Manatee Challenge Part 8
    Well, none of this has gone according to plan. Stealing animals out of zoos used to be so much easier back in the day, you know? Now it's all, "stop!" this and "let the manatee go" that. [...]
  • The higher-ups here don't seem too worried. They say this kind of stuff happens all the time, and that the longer he's on hiatus the less they have to pay him. [...]
