On Every Teen Should Have Their Phone Taken Away RIGHT NOW, SERIOUSLY, NOW

I always feel strange about this stuff because sometimes it seems hard to believe that youtube and facebook etc. didn't exist until several years after I graduated from college (let alone fucking Grindr, Tinder etc.) and yet I was still all over AIM, ICQ, IRC, playing online games and general being Up To No Good on the internet in high school. I don't regret that but it's unsettling to think that you were helping to pioneer the primitive forms of something that would eventually become Really Complicated and Potentially Harmful. I think the main difference is that it's much easier to just be a geek online doing possibly troubling things on the internet than when it started to intersect in major ways with people's real life peers and relationships.

On The Titles of Philip K. Dick’s Novels, In Order of Sheer Awesomeness

@GiovanniGF That's basically how all sci fi novels were done in the 60s. That isn't even close to the most ridiculous cover for a PKD book either.

On Wouldn't You Be Like, Fine, Knight Foundation, Here Is Your $20,000 Back?

I'm guessing he already blew the $20k on designer hoodies, gray jackets, button-up shirts, and v-necks

On Three Handjobs Is A Trend

Jesse Eisenberg gets a handjob in Squid & the Whale.

I think the guy from House of Cards had pancreatic cancer and not prostate cancer, but I could be wrong
