This happened with “Life’s Little Instruction Book,” which was a runaway bestseller during the holidays when I was at BBS. The takes on that were hilarious, too.

Every decade has its ‘book’. When ‘Peyton Place’ came out it was a juggernaut. Same with ‘Valley of the Dolls’. Twenty years ago everyone was swooning over ‘Outlander’.

Eh, I’ve got arthritis, and trust me...with enough gin, you’ll completely forget about your hands tying into knots and the crippling pain. If it isn’t working, you just have to keep drinking!

I kinda think you wanted to you could just cut up some chicken and marinade it soy sauce, ginger, oysters sauce, shaoxing wine and corn starch. Then fry it until it’s a light golden brown then let it cool and freeze. Then bake or fry it when you want some orange chicken. Read more

Good point. I think what the average person would like know is the assurance that services like Robinhood aren’t using the TOS to manipulate events not in the interest of the customers. Are there criteria to decide to stop trading? Will the leadership of Robinhood take actions at the behest of outside entities (big Read more
