Jul 23rd 2009 1:23PM As usual, women are being penalized because men can't keep it together enough to focus on something other than sex. Like the Taliban forcing women to cover up for fear that the sight of their skin would enrage male's sexuality, this whole thing about Erin Andrews being too sex for her job discussion is ridiculous and places the punishment on the wrong party. MEN NEED TO GROW THE F UP!! Get over your libido, focus on being good people, and realize that WOMEN ARE NOT JUST SEX OBJECTS. Objectifying, victimizing and brutalizing women and invading women's rights and privacies, then making jokes about it, or just accepting that men are pigs and nothing needs to change except that women need to deal with it, makes the US no better than the most misogynistic Muslim governments.
Feb 25th 2009 3:18PM This whole nonsense about the drinking age being 19 is just that, nonsense. I was 17 when I went off to college (a Pac-10 party school, at that). So, yeah, I ended up hanging out with 21 year-olds no problem. Thing is, I also hung out with them in high school. Not everyone in the world is a single/oldest child. To sit there and act like kids don't have older siblings or interaction with older teens is ridiculous. The discrepancy between 18 and 19 is negligible, regardless of when they graduate from high school.
Feb 25th 2009 3:15PM Dude, get your facts straight: economically and socially, Prohibition was one of the WORST ideas this country has ever produced. It resulted in such an extensive black market that the Mafia were able to gain strongholds across the country. It was so economically devastating that the industries that would have otherwise employed people (not just alcohol producers, but also distributors, drinking establishments and advertisers) were out of work and on unemployment. Police expenditures were through the roof, as they were trying to stem the tide of "illegal" drinking, but taxes were not being increased because what they were fighting was illicit and not under government control. Seriously, before you blow chunks outta your butt, do your homework!
Nov 27th 2008 2:02PM "Beyond giving birth, moms make sacrifices for their children. Maybe they do without the regular trip to the hair stylist so their kids can go to the right preschool. Or they stop watching soap operas in favor of cartoons or a trip to the park."Uhhhh....and this is when I stopped reading. Unless Aaron Crowe is using a time machine and is actually a visitor from 1970, parents give a lot more substantial sacrifice than hair salons and soap operas.What a superficial, patronizing, misogynistic jackhole!
Nov 15th 2008 3:28PM Two things:1) The Philly mayor is a NUTTER! LOL I love it!2) I think that the law is a great thing! People will realize that ordering a Cobb salad isn't healthy, that a tuna melt will cost you 1000 calories and a days worth of sat fat, and that even low-cal ranch is disgustingly fatty. They'll think twice about their food options, will teach their children better eating habits, and will reduce the astronomically high rate of obesity and obesity-related diseases (i.e., diabetes, hypertension). 3) READ THE ARTICLE! The Philly law isn't for small businesses! It's for those with 15 or more stores in the city! That's pretty much ONLY fast-food restaurants. You can still go to the mom and pop store and guzzle in the grease with ignorance and abandon.
Nov 13th 2008 4:02PM Also, those who are slamming the usage of "um" and "like," those are actually verbal pauses that are often made unconsciously. If you point their use out to a person, it will throw off their concentration and make you look like a controlling, mind-game-playing jack-hole. Also, it makes you look like a hypocrite, since you likely use the same kind of technique, but with a different sound. Get over it!
Nov 13th 2008 3:59PM Oh, man, so many...here are my worst ones (and I'm guilty of the second two on occasion):healthful and ironical (instead of healthy and ironic)frankly and seriously as an adjective/adverb (as opposed to what, obtusely and jokingly?)and anyone who adopts a faux accent/verbal pattern (i.e., educated white suburban yuppie trying to sound hip hop; anyone not from the South trying to sound like a redneck)
Nov 12th 2008 5:17PM Mountain House is a joke. It's a housing-boom manufactured community built damn close to the middle of nowhere: smack dab in between a cow-town (Stockton) and a small city (Livermore), but not near enough to either to make the commute worthwhile (average: 40-50 miles a day). Someone from Mtn House tried to convince me that the commute wasn't so bad, but I was working on the Peninsula....thanks, but a $100/month reduction in rent doesn't make up for the extra 80 miles (one way) I would have been driving every day.
Nov 7th 2008 2:52PM Well, when you run a campaign based on smear tactics and ill-will, what do you expect when you inevitably lose? The McCain/Palin ticket forewent all semblance of honor and integrity, and now they're starting to implode.
Oct 29th 2008 2:46PM I don't know. I lost both of my jobs and finished with school all at the same time. Now I have more time than ever to relax and go out. Because I don't have any money, that means less time at the bar and no money for cigarettes, plus I go out for free activities, like going for walks and bike rides and playing with the pup. Plus, I can actually get 8 hours of sleep each night. And, since I don't have health insurance, I have to be careful about my physical well-being so I don't get sick. Of course, it's not like I'm eating, my bills are looming, I'm collecting unemployment, and I can't seem to find a job, but at least some of my healthier habits are coming to the forefront!
