On An Oral History Of Gawker, By Reddit

This is hilarious. I went to Reddit for the first time in literally months yesterday because someone was apparently trash-talking me there in a thread about...Gawker. Decided I still wasn't aspie enough to make sense of their interface, and left.

On 50 Shades Of “Argh”

This is didactic, I know, but "argh" is actually an okay word in British English, where it is pronounced like an emphatic "ah." You begin to see where it fits?

It's like "er," which also occurs a lot in books, but which people in North America never say unless they learned to talk from books, like a fucking wolf in the forest or something. In Amercia and Canuckistan, we say "uh" like intelligent people.

On When "Trigger Warning" Lost All Its Meaning

@The Dependent Clause Yes, this exists. Newspapers don't want to use it, of course, because it costs money to buy, costs money to run, and screaming racism is always good for hits as long as it's in the comments section.
