I think we—and I include Jezebel in this, though we’ve gotten much better about it—have latched onto phony displays of anger over constructive argument. The sort of “one man did something wrong, let’s go fuck him up” kind of thing.
Was having a perfectly normal day, ran into some of the other neighborhood moms (and one nanny) and we were having a perfectly nice conversation just making small talk when out of the blue the nanny starts going on about the Illuminati and how God put Trump in office to protect us from them.
How is everyone doing?
Has everyone seen this? I keep wanting to find a reason to say that she is reading too much into this but ... I truly think it is accurate. And the takeaway from that is horrifying. If this is true, we have basically confirmed that our president (gag) is not only financially indebted to numerous foreign powers he is…
Because for real, fuck this dumpster fire of a year.
I cannot believe that it took less than 5 full days for the activist/slacktivist left to get itself tied up in knots about whether or not wearing a safety pin was:
I have more questions, technical and non-tech, for the crew.
I spent all day yesterday not being able to log into Kinja. (I would try to log in using my same old method and the sign-in window would jsut disappear without logging me in.) Finally, in desperation, I created a burner account so I could at least come here and ask, “WTF”?
I have not been visiting as frequently lately due to a number of factors, but am I correct that Tomato Face has not been seen since Gawker shuttered — or even since the acquisition was announced?
I have to say — I wasn’t that upset when I first heard the news, but as I saw that last series of posts, I got a little verklempt. Not sad, per se. Gawker isn’t “real life” enough for me to be truly sad. But I will miss it, and I will miss the people who wrote on and for it.
Not that anyone gives that much of a shit about me, but I needed to make a test post, and why not do it with panache, amirite, peeps?
The latest (admittedly relatively minor) redesign of the menu bar has made notifications essentially useless to me.
Great! But how come I can only ever see the last four? Is there some secret kinja trick to seeing all of them? Because when I click "see all notifications" I just get a blank page.
I do this, and it helps. I like potato chips — but not enough to justify the calories, so I put them on my ban list. French fries I *love* so much that I can totally justify the calories — so they're on the "in moderation and only when you really want them" list.
Career advice question in the reply:
A HUGE thank you to whoever it was who suggested creatively modifying part of my street address to come up with a company name. (Was it you Hideyourpearls? I'm so sorry I can't remember who said it.)
Pet-related silliness to follow. Non-animal lovers, you have been duly warned.
I have a modern social etiquette question. In the reply.
Trying to name a media/communications business is impossible. IMPOSSIBLE.
Dafuq? A good 75% of people I've had to deal with today have been stark raving mad. Is there a full moon tonight? Is it the fluroide in the water? What the hell is going on with people?
