I was thinking the same thing about those stadium seats. I was just telling my god son about laying on booth seats in a Bob Evans restaurant, yesterday and I’d give Lizzo the same advice; Read more

Leaning forward is the key. This way, the phone is no longer hovering over the toilet’s hiney-hole. You may actually find this to be the more comfortable position, as toilet seat lids aren’t particularly supple or conducive to reclining.  Read more

Agreed.  Jalopnik feels like a community though.  One united in their hatred of Kinja but still a community.  the drive feels like it’s a message board in a supermarket where commenters are concerned.  Also the writing feels...stiff, corporate even.  I like it but it seems slow to update and it’s lacking that sense of Read more

I fade in and out during mine. I remember a lot of what my spouse was doing to assist or where I had fallen, but I don’t remember the first hit, so it likely wouldn’t be excruciating.

That guy should have bought a seat sooner. You can’t really ever expect seats on planes to be available, these things sell out all the time.

My candidate, Warren, is at the top, which is cool, but i’d be fine if Julian Castro was No.1. Castro has been treated badly from day one, not only in mainstream media but among some Black pundits. Dude has been consistent in addressing black issues boldly and in radical ways yet never given due props. No other Read more

Before you book an extra seat, double check how much more it would cost to fly First Class. Sometimes it’s much cheaper to buy a First Class ticket than a second seat.
