I'm too dense to confirm whether I'm a "hypocrite," but I kind of feel I'm not "feigning" anything when I get my shorts in a bunch about blatantly slanting "news" in order to bring susceptible souls to a boil.
I wonder if Drudge linked to Rembert Browne's piece in Grantland from today.
RIOT. LOOTING. VANDALISM. TORCHED. SHARPTON.
Yeah, right. Fair and Balanced not the least bit Fucked-up and Biased.
@Jen@twitter So you can understand how not knowing the co-founder's gender, or his penchant for "haha"s and jokey kind of comments, might set off alarm bells among some of us :)
@frannpak It seems abundantly clear Choire treated Luke's work with respect and solemnity. But most of this article was about the craft of journalism-in-dangerous-terrain. And journo-to-journo meta-conversations about the work don't need to be approached with kid gloves.
@Jen@twitter You must be new here.
@Niko Bellic : Fuck the War on Terror, but I would 100% support the War on Murderous Fucks.
Just because some VC says "Uber, but for parking spaces!" in the lobby of a TED talk doesn't mean we need a video about it.
@lemmycaution somehow I missed this before making my comment below. Obviously I agree - I think online dating would definitely help here.
I suffer from the same paralyzing over-analysis, and the thing that really helped me was online dating. It sounds simplistic, but it really does eliminate a lot of the ambiguity about whether or not the people you're meeting and flirting with are looking to date (or at the very least, fuck) you.
@lemmycaution Good call. I think online dating would make it clear for LW that the women he is meeting are, indeed, interesting in dating him and (open to the possibility of eventually) fucking. Making lovers out of friends of 2+ years is always tricky, and that seems to be one of the problems here. But I agree with Polly, there is NOTHING WRONG OR OPPRESSIVE WITH ASKING FOR A DATE OR PHONE NUMBER. Especially at a social event that revolves around a shared hobby or interest. Lots of people attend those kind of functions because its a way to meet people TO DATE who already like doing what they do. So yes: online dating, and continue to attend social hobby things.
