"Hughes will! And now he has taken the title of "Editor and Publisher" of TNR, whose mindshare was stolen by The Atlantic, Talking Points Memo, and Slate, Salon and probably Thought Catalog."

Oooh, burn.

So... we're actively engaged in selectively breeding humans for the propensity to become aroused in a morgue?

“This might sound kind of shitty, but for me, I’m such an open person.... I’ve posted myself drunkenly masturbating, I’ve posted my phone number. I don’t really care. I’m mentally strong I guess. I can handle this shit, but I guess there’s some people who can’t"

Can you spot the difference between posting your own personal information and someone else posting that information without your knowledge or consent? If not, you fail at life.

So, would this new treatment work for Captain Hammer?

"See, Penny's giving it up, she's giving it up hard. Cause she's with Captain Hammer. And these [holds up fists] are not the hammer."

Lakoda Rayne is offensive on like ten levels. It's offensive to Native Americans. Offensive to porn stars who have thought up much better names. It's offensive to token brunettes. Offensive to the Dixie Chicks, even.

Also, don't I get to save my seat for at least 6 months as the Awl's American Idol expert? Are we really living in such transient times? I'm going to go buy coffee at McDonalds and this time I'm going to just go ahead and buy the breakfast burritos because really, who gives a shit anymore?

And Cho, don't tell me to shut up this time. YOU'RE NOT MY SUPERVISOR!

Yeah the NYer "that's it?" complaints have been irritating since Irene actually did cause a world of trouble just about everywhere except the city.

The article's author would have you believe it's a text-based adventure game, but it's not, in the strict sense. Text-based adventure games only have text, regardless of what Wikipedia would have you think, so it's a graphic adventure game, because it has graphics. There is an actual difference and THEY ARE DIFFERENT GENRES, and yet you namedrop Monkey Island, so OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE A CLUE BUT NOT ENOUGH OF ONE, stupid independent.co.uk writer. Anyway, HOW APPROPRIATE, YOU FIGHT LIKE A COW.
/nerdrage off, breathes heavily into paper bag
