Context is everything. Maybe that guy is a “creepster.” Maybe he’s just a lonely schlub. I don’t know. What I do know is that I was taught by my aunt that I should take compliments graciously and I learned from my single mother to take advances with vigilance and I learned from my wife that some women like when you notice that they’re pretty. Trolling is about as...

thememegeneration: insooutso: How does this work? I’m so, so sorry. It’s a horrible, soul-crushing experience. And the expenses don’t stop once you get the house. If you have disposable income, kiss it goodbye. Every house you look at will have something wrong with it. Get a good inspector. Stay away from franchises like Tiger Inspection. If they walk through with a default checklist and...

Earlier this week, The Daily Show did a piece on black Mormons in Utah. It’s hilarious. Watch it. If you’re not from Utah and/or not Mormon, you may have missed one very subtle nuance: When Jessica Williams first sits down, she says “Oh my God…” but the second time around she says “Oh my gosh…” I guarantee you she was admonished to do so by her...

Statistically, it’s not a stretch to say that about the only demographic left, aside from (some) pro-Israel Jewish Americans and (some) anti-Castro Cuban Americans, who are still voting for Romney are (some) middle-aged white men and (fewer of) their wives. Also, serious question: Has anyone seen pictures or even heard of any business partners that Mitt Romney had who weren’t white...

That last post wasn’t so much about Democrats vs. Republicans as it was about the current state of presidential politics. The Kennedy clan is the picture of entitlement in that arena. John Kerry was old money married to sorta new money. On the flipside, Reagan was very much a self-made man, which is probably why he had such crossover appeal and is such a hero of the party that for at least...
It occurred to me today that the past three Republican nominees for president were scions of some kind — Romney’s father was a respected, principled governor, McCain’s family had a multigenerational history of military leadership, Bush was the idiot son of an admirable yet bumbling son of a well-respected politician — while both Obama and Clinton have very similar claims to being, for...

halfbakedidea replied to your post: Seeing the other side? ugh I get it, but Romney isn’t running for student body president of the young Mormons club, he’s running for THE Presidency. I don’t care what your religion believes. This man wants to rule MY country, and I am not his religion. He’s not my religion either, but that doesn’t mean I can’t admire how good he looks with...
I watched Bill Maher last night for the first time in a long time. I don’t like him a whole lot, but I think his general comedic antipathy toward organized religinz may have played into that last post.
Seeing the other side?
Let me preface this by saying I didn’t watch the RNC and I won’t watch it, nor will I watch the DNC, because they’re not part of our civic duty, they’re conventions combined with infomercials and holy fuck you have to hate your life to subject yourself to that for anything other than comedic purposes. Yes, that includes “news.” But, two things floating around...

The Problem With Men Explaining Things →
scribblingcynic: Wonderful, eloquent, frustrating, much needed article. Certainly an article worth reading and it goes without saying that “men explaining things” to women as if they’re idiots is a real, awful thing that women have to deal with constantly. Here is the one problem I have with it: the central premise, as the writer says, is that “the out-and-out...
Our boy starts kindergarten tomorrow. And, y’know, it’s not the typical “they grow up so fast” wistfulness that’s been running through my mind. It’s the future. I see him on the playground with his friends, daring each other to go higher and jump farther. I see *him* reading *me* a bedtime story, then burying his nose in a chapter book. I see his eyes light up...
I’m just gonna leave this right here to show him a few years from now when he thinks I’m an idiot.
