The way that Lorne Michaels runs SNL as his own fiefdom is undoubtedly part of the problem. He was obstinate when called out over a lack of diversity in the cast in the years before they hired Sasheer Zamata and Leslie Jones. He would not look beyond his narrow idea of what a cast member should be or where they should

Yes and no. It’s the correct francophone pronunciation perhaps, but on an American show with a primarily English-speaking audience, it comes off as an affectation in my opinion. The word genre has been fully adopted from the French into English, and with that comes an independent pronunciation. The French may elide or

I suppose my issue isn’t so much with how you’ve defined shittiness, but in the way you’ve created a false dichotomy: by your thinking, there’s true monsters and then there’s shitty people. Juxtaposing monstrousness with shittiness, and then labeling Brown among the latter, gives him a pass or at least establishes

I mean, ejaculating on an unwilling person’s back and exposing yourself to a professional doing work in your home are, I think we can all agree, actions that go beyond mere shittiness, right?

Yes and no. Yes, in general having a different opinion from someone does not automatically make someone an asshole. But there are some things that people try to define as opinions that should not be up for debate in a civilized society, like whether women shouldn’t be allowed to make their own reproductive choices or

It’s only a problem if you bathe in the stuff. Using it on a problem spot or two isn’t likely to overwhelm those around you. The guys I’m talking about have Pigpen-like lines of menthol smell radiating from their bodies they’ve put so much of the stuff on. Spot usage isn’t going to bother other people, so I think

My addition to the list: If you’re having a conversation (in person or on the phone) that can be heard more than five feet away from you, you’re the jerk in the gym.

Ditto for IcyHot/Biofreeze etc. Please don’t knock me out with a cloud of menthol. Find the non-scented stuff, for all our sakes. There’s one guy at my gym who wears so much IcyHot that it makes my eyes water to the point of tears when he’s working out on the machine next to me.

I think a lot of people like sharing stuff like that in the run up to having the baby. For my sister, she shared for three reasons:

I think it’s only a big deal if you’re close family, like close to the point where you interact with them on a weekly basis. I’ve got a bunch of cousins, but we rarely see each other. There are a couple of identical kids names among the group (Jacob and Caroline), and it’s not a big deal. But my brother-in-law’s

Yeah, I generally only punish the server when it’s a clear instance of apathy or outright hostility. I waited tables for a couple of years myself, and it’s usually pretty easy to tell the difference between a server who is slammed, a server who is slacking a bit, and a server who is either terrible at their job or

Hugs to you from an internet stranger. That sucks, and I totally get not wanting to tell your family or anyone else for fear of being blamed or not believed. That’s a valid response. I believe you.

Exactly. I once got absorbed into some locals’ pub trivia game when I was staying on the outskirts of London. It was the best time, but totally unexpected because I hadn’t been at that bar to do anything but eat. It just sort of happened because I was alone and some Londoners were friendly enough to invite me to join

I’ve been to London a couple of time for work and for vacations, and the best trip I ever had was the one where I got up most mornings without a plan. I would take a book, choose a park to go read in (usually in Regent’s Park but sometimes Hampstead Heath). I would read there for a few hours, then decide what if

I always have this phase of pre-travel stress, so I feel you. I generally find that expressing that pre-travel stress through preparation and planning makes the actual trip less stressful, so I’m grateful for that.

Those cheekbones don’t need contouring. Dang. Also, I’m suffering some serious eyebrow jealousy.

Totally insensitive, but I’m not surprised. Rich white men are almost always so arrogant that they don’t think about things like that. They assume the system or the good old boys club will protect them. Even after they’ve fucked up so bad that they’ve been recalled from the bench.

Whatever barber (or stylist if he fancy) cut that side part into his hair should be fired and never allowed to wield clippers or scissors every again. That shit is jank.

This same cat, if I dropped something in the kitchen, would run to the vegetables first rather than any meat. What a weirdo. I could have dropped a juicy piece of steak or chicken, and that freak gobbled up the peas and broccoli first. He particularly liked carrots.
