On The Olds Don't Know Where Facebook Is

And then they wonder why we don't take them seriously.

On Everyone Secretly Hates "Snow Fall"

Wait, so Snow Fall is the reason why so many sites are now publishing stories in that massively wide, animation-heavy format that scrolls at the speed of molasses that I hate with a blinding fury? At least I know who to blame now, so I guess that's something.

On Apartment Long

By far, the person I've known who has owned the most clothing was a dude. He had several overflowing, regular closets, and on top of that, he had repurposed an entire bedroom in his house as a closet, which was also completely full.

The most confusing thing about it was that he was just a regular dude, not some rich or important person who was going out all the time.

On How Is Gmail's New Interface Going To Screw Up Your Life?

If you're like me and you can't deal with change, like, at all, there was actually still a button to switch back "temporarily" to the old way (which I clicked, obviously).

On Mankind's Dream Of Trophy Apartment Finally Achieved

@dinosaur_senior Oh god, I think you're right. I don't know which is worse, that it actually appears to be a repurposed tractor tire (shades of When Harry Met Sally wagon-wheel coffee table), or that it looks like a giant macrame bracelet.

On Mankind's Dream Of Trophy Apartment Finally Achieved

"There is taste everywhere you look" - INDEED.

Also, does it come with the macrame-looking coffee table? Because that is some taste right there.

On Girl Powder: A Cultural History Of Love's Baby Soft

I read through this whole thing waiting for the "also, it repels mosquitos!" punchline. Google reveals that was actually Avon's Skin-So-Soft. My adolescence is just becoming a giant blur.

On Are You Dumber Than A Toaster?

Kind of annoyed my mother is now writing for the Guardian and didn't even tell me.

On Dunkin' Donuts Finally Bringing Its Glamor To Southern California Strip Malls

@NeenerNeener So there is this show on NGC or the Discovery Channel (or something like that, I forget which) about tuna fishing, and it's narrated by the same guy who does Deadliest Catch, and in the opening credits narration, he calls it "Glow*-ster" (*rhymes with "Mao"), and it grates of my ears like I can't even tell you. It's just baffling - your entire show is about these guys, and you couldn't even bother to ask them how to pronounce the place where they live?

On The Internet's Vigilante Shame Army

Seems pertinent to add this, which is happening right now:
