On When a Housing Inspector Says It's Illegal to Keep a Bicycle in Your Garage

It's a measure of my dull, midwestern personality that I am very intrigued to see how this pans out.

On Ask Polly: I Had a Stillbirth and My Husband Totally Lacked Empathy

I'm sure Polly will have a great response to this, but after reading just the letter, leave that motherfucker.

On The Limits of Revivalism

What I don't get about this Cadillac place, is that mid-70s Wisconsin Supper Clubs were stuck in the 60s, even in the 70s. Grasshoppers are what Wisconsin moms feed their sick kids to get them to fall asleep (thanks Mom!). You order sweet bourbon manhattans and a prime rib sandwich. I think they're getting "supper club" and "shithole where people go to drink themselves to death" confused. Cause that pic looks vaguely familiar of a certain Wisconsin aesthetic, but they're replicating 70s heydey YNOT/wolski's, not a supper club. Anyway, that's my two wisconsin cents. Don't put this scourge on us, we don't want any fancy schmancy muddled grasshoppers we just wanna drink alcohol milkshakes and scream at the tee vee.

On How I Got My iPhone to Finally Let Me Swear

At the DC Apple announced that 3rd party keyboards are on the way, which means none of this matters. We'll all get Swiftkey when it comes out for iPhone so that our keyboard can scour the interwebz and our text history to predict when we want to say "fun" and when we want to say "fudgepackers." Welcome to the future, pigpoopballs.

On What If These TED Talks Were Horribly, Unspeakably Wrong?

I'd rather deep throat a sandwich baggie full of broken glass than listen to Malcolm Gladwell bloviate about literally anything.

On Ask Polly: My Life Is A Beige Pointless Hellscape!

@MousesHouse I was just coming here to say that. I'm not destined for SNL, but I've gotten damn good at being funny, knowing how to make people laugh, harnessing anger into satire. It makes everything in my life better. I care more about my job, I am a better partner, a better friend, I care about my life a lot more. I even work out! It's full of a lot of flannel wearing white male opinions, but it's also full of the best people you'll meet, just working on being OK people.

On Ask Polly: We Had The Best Sex Ever, But He Won't Be Mine!

@anthraxl rose I think she's referring to Polly's last post. If you want to find someone worthy of your awesome, you have to get used to the idea of being awesome alone, and then you won't be desperate for someone who's "tepid" about you.

My reply is for someone down below, I don't know how it ended up here.

On What Does Your Coffee Say About You? And... Is It Something Terrible?

Ugh, accidentally deleted my comment. The best theory I've heard is to increase construction of high density apartment complexes/building so that the rent stays down. Those who already live there can stay, those who want to move in and bring their professional dollars can move in. Also increases property taxes without increasing individual tax burden too much, so the schools get better.

It's an idealized theory, but I think there's some truth to it.

On Empathy

Wonderful words for horrible things. Brilliantly done, Mr. Khan.

On Ask Polly: Give Me One Reason Why I Shouldn't Cheat On My Wife

@scrooge Just because lots of men are dicks doesn't mean their dickishness is diminished. If it quacks like a dick, walks like a dick, etc.
