Re: Inequality

The thing I don’t understand about the relocation story, still, is that you don’t make the same money in a cheap place. I mean I get the part about moving from a rural area with no jobs to a city. I just don’t get the part about leaving large cities for smaller ones as if it’s just a cost of living ...

Re: Kulturkampf? In my NFL? It's more likely than you think. Football 2018

Fans do not care. There is zero evidence that fans care more about this than domestic abuse, dog fighting or being an accessory to a double murder. Well clearly the owner's think they do care. As you just noted they don't always care a lot about of other issues. If an owner thought they wouldn't ge...

Re: You Learn Something New Every Day

I just realized something: Nicole's "How to wear a D-ring belt" looks pretty simple, so if ever I get such a belt I now know what to do with it -- but the last part of the instructions says to tuck any excess belt material into the nearest belt-loop of your pants, to avoid the fabric hanging down a...

Re: You Learn Something New Every Day

Two of the long-sleeved linen shirts I've bought for extreme-hot-n-humid conditions have buttons above the elbows on their sleeves. I thought those were so you could roll up the sleeve and then put the elbow-button through the buttonhole on the cuffs to keep the sleeves in place; I never could fold...

Re: What are you reading?

Ada is pretty much the greatest novel. It can be some work.

For something less intense but still awesome I recommend The Luzhin Defense, Invitation to a Beheading, and King, Queen, Knave. People love Pnin but I haven’t read it.

Might go spend the day re-reading Ada now.

There's nothing wrong with roast turkey. I want it on Tgiving because I don't get it on any other day. Smoked turkey s'ok. Deep fried turkey, overrated gimmick. Turkey left overs are amazeballz.

We’re hosting this year for the first time. Which is annoying because we decided to host to have friends over who now aren’t coming. Anyway. Dubs is in charge of course. There’s a turkey brining in the fridge and we’re having mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, onions and green beans. MIL ma...

Re: Food

i've never understood how the technically correct people don't have the lower stick slide off the finger. It's 2.5 seconds into any eating effort for me with that grip. Part of it is pincer pressure is overrated. In general you don't go sticks down, pinch and pick up. You go sticks from the side an...

Dude. All I had to do yesterday outdoors, because I decided to take the MTA to LGA because a cab (at around 3:45!) would have been insane, was cross 8th Ave to the Port Authority. Our office is across the street. And I was actually scared because of how slippery it was that I was going to fall in th...

I don’t know whether it’s really the case that kids these days are having a hard time getting together, but if they are, that’s the bad thing to me. And I do see a lot of people talk about these kinds of dating woes and it does seem shitty. I wonder to what extent 'dating sucks' is a real cultural ...
