Gotta say, you definitely hit most of the main elements of the story. I’ve read the book and your synopsis isn’t too far off of what I’d say if someone asked me to summarize the book in fifteen seconds or less.

I love this reply. “I can’t defend the shittiness of my own country, so instead I’ll try to point out how it compares slightly favorably to one of the most troubled countries on the planet.” Read more

Hey, look, our freedoms. Causing more cases of COVID-19 in a single fucking event than some developed countries have had in total. Yay. Read more

I’d hesitate on the Chromebook recommendation for certain college students. I adored my Samsung Chomebook Pro. It was a marvelous machine, and totally worked for like 98% of the things I needed it to. But it’s biggest hangup (having to use the Android version of Word) would have killed me in college.

Eh, to keep the rest of us sane. Seriously, just knowing other people are still outraged by this shit helps me fight off that despondent feeling that my country really is completely gone, and that we really are living the opening chapters of a dystopian novel turned real.

God. A car I don’t want, painted up in tribute to a band I don’t like, being offered for a price I’d never pay. Read more

When it became obvious that the pool boy thing was true, my first thought was that we’re in for 6-12 months or more stories like this coming out. There’s never just one.

I want to like these cars so much more than I actually do. When I see them now, my brain immediately thinks, “oh look, Lotus made an MR2!” And I really like both Lotuses and Mister Twos! But something about this has just always seemed off. Like this car is a clever solution to a problem that doesn’t really exist. Read more

Yeah, after I posed that someone else said something similar, I looked and you are very much right. Apparently my memory of these prices is much like my memory of pop music: stuck in my early twenties, which is longer ago than my brain wants to acknowledge.

How incredible, that people who’ve spent years cynically using scripture as a political cudgel to get their own way and make a ton of money could be such hypocritical pieces of shit. What a completely unpredictable turn of events. I am certainly surprised by this and could never have possibly seen this coming. I am Read more

Putting aside the actual hideousness of the Trump Administration for a moment, ignoring the kids in cages, the horrific mishandling of the pandemic, the constant racism, the constant social fuck-ups, the continual offending of our allies and kissing up to dictators, the parade of former administration and campaign Read more

Damn. I really wanted to vote NP, because I do love this car. The design is goofy, but I’ve always loved how cartoonish it looks. The way the belt line swoops up by the rear tires, it looks like it’s getting ready to go, like a cartoon character winding up before he goes off on a high-speed run. I dunno. I’ve just Read more

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” Read more

I agree, but I’d go a step further and say: if you’ve got good enough credit, you can put nothing down on a Tacoma and you’ll still never be underwater. I bought a 2019 new last summer, I got such a great rate—not 0% but close. Good enough that the money I’d put aside for a down payment served me better by being Read more

Man, so much no dice. This is purely a personal thing, but go-fast trucks are really lost on me... at least something like this. For me, trucks should be resilient, able to haul shit, and be able to go anywhere in almost any terrain or weather. Like, even if I wouldn’t buy one, I think the Raptors are kinda cool, Read more

Both Obamas’ speeches the last couple of days—and Trump’s response to them—remind me that this campaign season will likely be the densest and most consistent string of criticism Trump has ever faced. Yes, of course he’s been criticized nonstop since he entered the political fray—but now it’s a campaign where he’s the Read more

How worried should we be? Given Trump’s track record on literally everything, what’s going to happen is that his circus troop of dipshits will make a half-assed, ham-fisted effort to do this and fail through sheer incompetence and hubris. But, along the way to their ultimate failure, they’ll fuck up a bunch of other, Read more

Yeah, well said. These things just radiate anger and hatred and ignorance. I want no part of it. And I’ve spent the last five years going out of my way to avoid Trump supporters—I have no interest in wearing anything that’ll attract them to me. Read more
