On Let's Choose Our Next Metric Very, Very Carefully

Medium is going for the slow reader demographic.

Also, how is it possible that they didn't realize longer high quality posts would get less traffic than short clickbait?

On Changes At The Awl

"More From the Awl" links on this article"
"A Beta Male Journeys Through the Femireich"
"A Certain Type of Male Thinking: An Interview with Adelle Waldman"
"The Bros Who Inherited the Earth"
"Music Recommendations Good"

"Around the Web" links:
"Steroid Alternative Flying Off Shelves"
"10 second trick for free testosterone boost"
"Trainers Hate Him"
"10 Movies So Bad They Killed Careers"

I'm not sure what kind of sexy demographics The Awl is going after now.

On What Should We Call The Girls Who Like To Learn?

It's incredible that an "explainer" that includes a bit of the data showing how devastating the effects of poverty and racism are, somehow brings it all back around to simply "fidgety boys."

On If We Ignore Our Decrepit Bridges They Will Heal On Their Own, Right?

It's just basic free market economic theory. When a bridge collapses, it's because drivers made a poor consumer choice to use a damaged bridge instead of a well-maintained bridge. Since maintenance costs money, wise consumers will choose to pay exorbitant fees to use a privately-owned non-collapsing bridge. The poors will choose to swim, because they have not performed a proper cost evaluation of their lives vs bridge fees. Thus, an self-regulating economy will eliminate those incapable of functioning within it, and we are one step closer to our libertarian utopia.

"The menu also includes shakes spiked with beer, such as the 'Mexican Car Bomb'"
Potentially offensive to both the Irish and Mexicans! These guys really are genius at reaching a wide demographic.
