On The Weirdest Marriage Equality Signs On the Internet

"Suddenly everybody...had changed their profile pictures and avatars to some little parallel lines symbol. It was as if millions of people tried to make a pink ribbon icon and failed, utterly, because they could not do the curve thing."

Please tell me you're joking.

On another note, I'm a pretty snark-filled person (and this isn't necessarily directed at you, Ken), but if you're going to snark about something as innocuous as thousands of people changing their profile pictures on Facebook for a day or two to show their support for marriage equality, perhaps you need to step away from your computer and go read a book or something.

On "Polls" Describe Candidates as "Deadlocked"

I use Nate Silver's reliable Five Thirty Eight blog for all my presidential prediction needs (it was pretty accurate almost down to the electoral votes in 2008). Here, it's not even close. So there's that. http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/

On Twitter User Jiggy Represents Everything That Is Wrong With Our Modern Society

Ah yes, as George Carlin so eloquently put it, "just think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are even stupider than that."

See, it's funny because this poor animal that will likely die an early death because people are irresponsible pet owners is fat!

On Obama Still Hates Gay Marriage, No Matter What You Want to Think

Sorry Choire, but i strongly disagree with you on this. I believe Obama is for gay marriage, and if he gets re-elected he will come out in support of it. Maybe not necessarily in his inaugural address, but he will. Besides, as others have noted above, the UCC is pro gay marriage, which is something perhaps you should have researched before generalizing a bunch of people based on their faith?

On Today Only: The Awl Is Auditioning New Commenters!

When I read some of Denton's complete and utter condescension towards the commenters yesterday, I actually said out loud at my desk, "is this guy serious?" And i'm someone who can't stand a majority of the people who comment over there.

Then I went to take a smoke break because I felt so uncomfortable.

You know, I used to enjoy Tom Friedman before he became, well, megalomaniac douche Tom Friedman.
