Yeah, that’s exactly right. I had to look at Wikipedia’s timeline to confirm. Nasim Pedrad was added in 2010, Vanessa Bayer was added in 2011, and Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, and Aidy Bryant were added in 2013. I think that was the year I turned to my wife and said, “Wow, the female cast members are carrying this… Read more
This feels like overthinking it. Adults shouldn’t need to actively avoid anyone, at least not to the extent that you need a plan (or “hacks”) for it. You get out of talking to someone by talking to literally any other person.
I’m sure you put a lot of work into the video. I’m sure it is very good. I’m sure it captures nuance that an article without video could not. I’m sure the majority of people who watch it are not sorry they did. Read more
No joke. I don’t go for organized religion myself, but “fuck church” was neither the substance nor the tone of his remark. I don’t know whether to write the headline off as a clickbait-y attempt to grab a few more eyeballs for what is at this point (two days later) a stale story or as the author hardcore projecting… Read more

Okay, either you legitimately don’t understand, or you’re feigning a semantic ambiguity so you can feel correct, and though I suspect it’s the latter, on the off chance it’s the former, here you go: Read more
You take your star, but make no eye contact as you do.
I feel like you glossed over my overall message (i.e., height advantage is based on perception, not utility), and jumped straight to the assumption that I was arguing that there is no advantage to being tall in today’s society, which is pretty obviously not the point I was making. Read more
I find the widespread obsession with height so fascinating. It’s one of those things that really shouldn’t be that significant, since we as a species have all but eliminated the circumstances in which being tall would be a practical advantage. All the (physical) challenges facing shorter-than-average people are… Read more
No, he stabilized it. He didn’t remove it. Go back and rewatch it or find the script online if you need that confirmed.
No, it isn’t.
Seeing Pepper Potts rock an Iron Man suit is one of the big, fun surprises of that final battle. And, with Tony now dead, doesn’t the world seen need an Iron Man? Or, better yet, an Iron Woman? Read more
