darao75: The internet is abuzz today with the controversy about the t-shirt for sale at JCPenney that says “I’m too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me.” Apparently, said t-shirt has now been pulled. I haven’t really heard anyone talking about the one stating “My best…

slackmistress: stevemarmel: Usually, I will repost something with links, or credit, or whatever. But I so dislike this article I have no desire to help you help her hit count. To be clear, it is a Gizmodo writer who wrote this - used a dating service to go out with somebody and then bashed him in her blog because he… First, go read Steve’s rebuttal. Then, let’s take a moment to giggle at...

Questions (game) →
Questions is a game that is played by participants maintaining a dialogue of asking questions back and forth for as long as possible, without making any declarative statements. Play begins when the first player serves by asking a question (often “Would you like to play questions?”). The second player must respond to the question with another question (e.g. “How do you play...

tbridge: inthefade: I am irrationally pissed off at this statement by Obama. I feel like someone just patted me on the head after I had my heart broken and said “Buck up, camper! I mean, it’s not like your heart is really broken, right?” This is the sort of bullshit trite treatment of a serious issue that has me wondering where the hell the grownups are. This “glass-half...
Credibility, Chutzpah And Debt →
To understand the furor over the decision by Standard & Poor’s, the rating agency, to downgrade U.S. government debt, you have to hold in your mind two seemingly (but not actually) contradictory ideas. The first is that America is indeed no longer the stable, reliable country it once was. The second is that S.& P. itself has even lower credibility; it’s the last place anyone should turn...

wilwheaton: The public still wants jobs instead of deficit reduction, and support increasing taxes on those making over $250,000, both by a two-thirds margin. In fact, the whole poll (go read it) shows positive favorables for Democratic positions in this last debate, not that that made a damn bit of difference to anyone involved. Congratulations, Congress, it’s now official: you have the lowest...

Planned Parenthood firebombed, right wing silent →
captpinkie: A planned parenthood was bombed in McKinney, TX. They didn’t provide abortions and yet somehow this news has not passed on. This is an act of domestic terrorism, yet there is silence. Please, pass this on.

Both of these reports are most likely false. The Nickelodeon one turned out to be an article from an Orange, CA, high school paper; the site has since pulled the article, but you can read a cached version. That was the nastier rumor of the two, since Millennials love ’90s-era Nick shows and would happily latch on to any crumb of news that we’d get to see those beloved characters...
