You can’t take it with you.
This is the time of year when you do nice things for others. Here is a very nice thing you can do today, and it will only take a minute.
Around the time of Trump’s inauguration, when America’s maximum diffuse liberal rage was seeking an outlet, there was discussion of a general strike. Then, it was an implausible fantasy. Now? Let’s have a serious talk.
Bitcoin is a fake and made-up scam. Can you articulate what it is? “Bullshit jargon that means nothing”-you. Hell no. All we can say for sure about this imaginary “coin” is that it is going to cost you a bundle (sucker).
San Quentin is beautiful from the outside. It sits on a sun-drenched point jutting out into San Francisco Bay, a short drive north from the Golden Gate Bridge, at the end of a small road overlooking the water. Right up to its front gate sit quaint houses with spectacular views, which go for around a million dollars…
It’s hard to think of a single day that better encapsulated the pitiful state of American soccer culture than yesterday.
“Golf is a good walk spoiled,” a famous man once said, speaking to the author of A Book of Quotes. Would it not, in our modern world, be more accurate to say, pithily, “Fuck golf—golfing ass motherfuckers?”
Over the last seven centuries, the Knights Templar have left the realm of history and entered the realm of pop culture. They’re a major plot point in Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code and the villains of the Assassin’s Creed series of games, and feature in an astonishing array of pseudo-history and conspiracy theories.
As the medieval world gave way to the early modern around 1500, European warfare was utterly transformed. Mounted knights and castles gave way to cannon, firearms, and enormously complex fortifications. The scale of war grew as well. Armies that had contained thousands of soldiers in the 15th century turned into tens…
Floyd Mayweather beat Conor McGregor’s ass; McGregor put on a respectable effort against an elite boxer, winning a moral victory. McGregor looked as sharp as he could have, and showcased improved skills; Mayweather was a faded husk of his former self. The fight was competitive in stretches; the fight wasn’t close.
When the Roman Empire disintegrated over the course of the fifth century, only half of it actually fell, the western half. The eastern half of the Roman Empire would survive in one form or another for a thousand years.
Broadband data caps have long been the enemy of net neutrality advocates who see the blatant cash-grab disguised as “network management” as a hinderance. Now, Netflix is joining the fray—for obvious reasons—as it stands the most to lose if Americans increasingly find themselves lashed to restrictive data caps.
Ask An Adequate Woman is a space where readers can ask the questions they can’t—or maybe just won’t!—pose to their friends about relationships, fashion, family dramas, dating, existential crises, weird sex stuff, and everything else. The Women of Deadspin (and some of our clever friends) are here to happily lend an…
Inevitably, you’ve got a holiday party or two left to attend (unless you wriggle your way out of it), and it’s only right to bring something for the host. Booze is the easy option, and it’s by no means a faux pas as far as gifts go. But it’s also the lazy option, so here, we offer you some more creative ideas.
You’re about to be in for a whole lot of family togetherness. Some of that togetherness will probably be spent around a TV, which is great, but you’ll have a lot of different tastes to satisfy, which can be very bad. You want to avoid something too graphic (your mom’s in the room) or too sexual (your grandma’s in the…
As you may have imagined, our call for your sordid tales of holiday party mishaps yielded tales of in-office hookups, puking, and even sexually transmitted diseases. Merry Christmas, indeed! Here are your best/worst war stories:
Many of you may be having office holiday parties today, so let me start by asking: What are you wearing? I can’t decide. In any case, company holiday parties—and holiday parties in general—always end with remarkably un-festive stories. Someone makes out with someone they shouldn’t, the HR guy gets drunk and pukes on…
It may feel like it’s been a long time since you were an idiot teen, but the memory of being grounded for the stupid things you did has a way of sticking with you. Last week we asked you to tell us about the worst trouble you got into, and the biggest takeaway from your replies is that many of you have very creative…
There’s a scene in Dazed and Confused where Kevin Pickford’s parents find out he was planning to throw a party that night because the keg deliveryman shows up early. It’s great. Kids everywhere have been pulling these kinds of stunts since the beginning of time, and I want to hear about a time you got caught for it.
