Today's Daily/NBN fiasco as explained to a...
It’s like NBN is a tribe, and some dumbass tribe teenager went and stole a sheep that might have been the Daily tribe’s. And all the NBN tribe elders were like “UGHH why did you have to go do that - don’t you know that the other tribe in our area are TOTAL bitches when it comes to that shit?” But since that kid was part of the tribe the tribe elders had to get...

The Great White Writers are passing - the ones weaned on Twain, not Twitter -...– gawker commenter, on the death of John Updike. From me, Updike gets his due for writing “Buchanan Dying” - a play about one of our country’s most underappreciated and historiographically short-changed presidents. A loss.
This speaks for itself
microwavecake: “I was quoted (misquoted) in this article a lot. As a journalism student myself, I would never have chosen to assume that my subject “waits nervously.” I also would have listened to my subject when she told me TWICE that Saferide went over budget last year and was not in the middle of budget cuts. This article, unfortunately, is a misrepresentation of the situation. I am not a...

If it's fatal at least make it fun
D: college has consequences. fatal ones
M: fatal - reeeally?
D: i.e. don't do homework = fail exam = fail class = looks bad on transcript = no job = homeless = death. it's science
M: but you have to think of it this way: no job = homeless = a lot of free time = a lot of free time to ride the rails = trains = fun = then you die
