This is made so much worse by the fact that it was on the stairs. If he had done this on flat ground - excessive and scary, but not insanely so. But on STAIRS? If he had miscalculated at all and pulled a bit too hard, he could have ended up not just injuring Nozlee but maybe even several people. Really, guy? Is letting a woman known that she "pushed" you worth causing a dangerous pile-up on the stairs? I understand why Nozlee was so rattled.

I imagine the catcall stretches back to ancient construction times, when the Israelites were building the pyramids, with scores of single Jewish women hiking up their loincloths, hoping for a little attention.

This is some next-level trolling. Bravo.

After reading this article, I want to commit suicide, or at least never use a computer again. Where does that fit into the spectrum of reader engagement?

So what is it that makes them "terrorists"? Can we pin point that? Sure they are murderous fucks. But did we call Viet Cong terrorists? Nope. How about The Zetas? Nah. All those evil Balkan warlords tried in Hague? Ne. But these guys... oh, yeah. See, it's because they are Muslim Arabs. No brainer: they are definitely terrorists.

By Ralph Haygood on Moral Calculus Elucidated

@KarenUhOh: "price elasticity" or, more precisely, "price elasticity of demand" is a standard, reasonably well defined thing in economics (e.g.,


). Whether Amazon has measured it as they claim is, of course, another matter, and whether it implies what Amazon asserts it does is, of course, yet another matter.
