I haven't known you all very long..
sarcasticrylie: So my first impressions are still pretty much the same: You’re all funny (some of you more than others). You’re all a little bitter (some of you more than others) Secretly, you’re all very sweet. But none of you get enough sex.
Mom, This Is How Twitter Works. (Not Just For... →
Twitter is an online social networking tool in which users post 140 character updates of what is going on in their lives along with links to things they think are interesting, funny, or useful to their followers (“following” being essentially what “friending” is on other sites). People use twitter in many ways, some as a newsfeed by following prominent people or networks, some as a psuedo-chatroom...

Zero Tolerance for a Good Kid →
Excerpt: We are getting really good at substituting fear for reality. See the posts below this one about suing the Scouts for allowing boys to play in the semi-darkness, or about the recall of drop-side cribs. The fear that an item or activity might have any negative consequences EVER is enough to make us ignore any upside — even a huge one — and outlaw it.

A fun read, but is it accurate? Is he angry at the right people?
I seem to recall, back in the weed-addled recesses of my mind (Just kidding, Dad! Ha ha ha ha!), that when men dressed down at work they wore a blue button-down shirt and a pair of khakis. This appears to have changed to a black long-sleeved pull-over shirt and a pair of jeans. At least, that’s what I gathered from my trip to the men’s room moments ago. Full-disclosure: My sample...

You're All Helpful People, Right? →
Then maybe you can help a stranger? A dear friend from the interwebs makes a plea: Could you please make sure I get to keep my lovely, amazing wonderful friend a bit longer? You see, she’s a woman of rare strength and grit. She’s someone who only comes along once in a lifetime. You all came together so amazingly during my recovery so I know that I can count on you. I’m...

“It does not scare me because I believe in the intelligence of the American public,” Oprah Winfrey, on Palin running for president.
I have put myself in a position where I must admit that, when my supervisor (of sorts) asked if I had looked at something and I told him yes, I really didn’t know what the hell he was talking about. Not only have I not looked at it (since I didn’t really know what it was), now that I’ve reached that part that he was asking about, I can’t make it work. Or find out how to...

Any plan to take back dismissed soldiers may run into snags with the paperwork. Most gay people released under DADT received what’s called an involuntary honorable discharge, which also applies to personnel with mental health problems or parental duties that preclude military service. Those who receive an involuntary honorable discharge are usually assigned the RE-4 re-enlistment code,...

darao75: Velvet is a great blogger, and someone that I’ve kind-of-sort-of known for years. You should all read her, regardless of the fact that her blog got written up by Gawker today. But you should totally read what Gawker wrote about her very amusing and insightful post (particularly because her blog is down, likely from all the traffic): Discovered on the Metro North New York-Connecticut...
In 1789, by age 35 you’d probably have at least one dead spouse under your belt. It built character. You would have had a few brushes with death yourself, from infected blisters or scurvy or flint tomahawks. Your schooling would be done with, since there was a lot less to learn in the 18th century, and three decades or so of on-the-job training would have given you a taste of the working life....
SarcasticRylie: Santa Claus is Canadian →
sarcasticrylie: If you look at a map, the North Pole is basically in Canada. Basically. In Canada, our postal system, Canada Post, has a campaign where kids can write their letters to Santa and they will get answered. It doesn’t matter how they address the envelope, because Canada Post says as long as the postal…
