Re: The Abortion Thread

Or, assuming the birth rate is low enough to cause concern, people could realize it’s wrong to create people just to be the tax slaves of others.

Re: The Abortion Thread

To be fair, saying fetuses are needed to become “these people we need to support us” isn’t exactly “concern for fetuses” at all, phony or otherwise.

Re: Guns and Whatnot.

"The Miami Herald reported that Pais lived in Surfside, Florida and that her parents had reported her missing Monday night. "Her father told the newspaper he thought "maybe she's got a mental problem," but added: "I think she's gonna be OK."" So I think that's at least part of it. I mean, right, bu...

Re: Guns and Whatnot.

So, uh, why is this woman being investigated exactly? Why did investigators learn about her flight at all?

Re: DOOM! (Insert extra Os as you see fit)

I am not trying to be glib when I point out that most elite college-educated women in their early twenties today live lives that would not seem very different from a prostitute’s to people in the era you are disparaging. Especially the part about leaving money on the dresser or paying their pimp in...

Re: Home $weet Home

So I haven't done mortgage shopping in 10 years or so. Are any of the online tools worth a damn (they weren't 10 years ago)? Any killer app for lending compare or is it still filter to a few and haggle over stated rate vs. fees included APR and points and other nonsense? The latter is what I did bu...

I’ve said it before when he was on Slate, Isaac Chotiner is an amazing interviewer. He gives his subjects enough rope to hang themselves and doesn’t ask showy questions. BEE: Did she say that?

Yep, plastic bags in the ocean killing wildlife is totes cool as long as you're not directly responsible.

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

I get new plastic bags every shopping trip. I've got a sock that holds old bags and I pull one out whenever I need a bag, but if the sock is full they go right in the trash. I remain unconvinced that anything bad comes of throwing old grocery bags in the trash. https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/18/asia/d...

Re: Calling 2020 for Entropy

It wasn’t that surprising by November, because the polls were right. I definitely remember not knowing who would win on the day, not being surprised it was Trump, and being annoyed the next day with everyone acting shocked about it.

Re: Fragments of an avotoast anthropology

One of my friends is really excited about Heathers and tried to make me watch it a couple weeks ago. I tapped out after about five minutes because I couldn't take it seriously and it was super unpleasant. It really might be one of those things where you had to have been there, so to speak.

Re: Fragments of an avotoast anthropology

Yet most unpopular kids in 1989 also did not take direct action against the popular kids, let alone commit crimes against them. I suspect few teenagers of any post-motion-picture era act like the characters in whatever comedies are marketed to them. Well that’s kind of the premise of the whole column
