Ever tried inserting Unicode characters from OSX? It works -- sort of.
You can tell you're on Reddit, when you see really stupid shit from college boys.
Very impressive. $5200 for a "coffeemaker". Garish, difficult to use, impossible to keep clean. Run right out and buy one.
Smile, the FAA is still hopelessly outdated. You can now go to Flightradar24 and instantly know more than any air-traffic controller in the United States.
This nice young man posted a collection of concert tickets his father saved. In the 1970s dad saw popular heavy-rock and MOR acts of the day. In the 80s he saw James Taylor, Heart, and George Strait. Then there's a break until 1997....then dad started watching middle-aged whiteboy jazz like the Rippingtons, Old Steely Dan, and (ugh) Michael McDonald. Conclusion: Dad is a giant crashing bore.
Please do not tell me that academia is "egalitarian" and "honest". It's just as corrupt, snobbish and incompetent as everything else.
Everybody loves Download.com, because it's the world's biggest collection of freeware and shareware for Windows. And it was safe software too......until recently. Sorry.
Oh, this country is not fucked? What about this and this?
Didn't everyone do this?

I'd feel sorry for her, but we all get screwed in the manner we deserve.
Did you know that former football great Deion Sanders started a private school? And that he's running it into the ground? And he's doing it on reality TV? Neither did I. However, that fact that Dallas is a shithole has not escaped me, so none of this is really surprising.
Just a reminder: Facebook is still not your friend.
"“AmEx’s cachet with the affluent is not what it used to be,” said Jason Arnold, an RBC Capital Markets analyst. “AmEx has always enjoyed king-of-the-hill status, but that’s changed. They’ve seen more competition in the upper-end, and they recognize that they have to go elsewhere to fill that gap.”" Hah. Fuck you, American Express.
Metafilter Is Shit: the most-popular thread on Feb. 20 (by far) was this. And just like clockwork, the fucking dickweeds started arguing over the Monty Hall problem. Again, as they always do when it is brought up. Smart people often have tunnel vision and are thus not as smart as they think they are.
And should you ever need some Hindustani obscenities, here's a handy list, courtesy of a Reddit thread. Now you can go to Varanasi and get the shit beaten out of you. Better yet, tell Jimbo Wales these are complementary words. He goes to India frequently, and with any luck the shit will be beaten out of him instead.
Haramzada : Bastard
Harami : Ill-begotten or a Bastard
Bhadwa : Pimp
Madarchod : Mother fucker
Bhenchod : Sister fucker
Bhonsdi ke : Whore's Husband Or Someone born from a rotten pussy
Gandu : Ass, to describe someone stupid Example: Arrey Gandu dekh ke chal, meaning "Look and walk you dumb ass"
Chutia : Pussy
Kutia, Raand, Randi, Bitch, Rakhail & saali : Whore
Maarna, Lena, Dena, Bajana, Phatna : Mostly contextual, on the lines of "Put it up", "Take it in your mouth"

Consider what happened to Justine Sacco.
And what continues to happen to Anne Hathaway.
Someday, I predict that Facebook and Twitter will either be outlawed, or subjected to heavy government regulation. So rub your Facebook stock certificates in your asscrack with slow satisfaction, because they won't last.

That's what a 28-day bottle of Harvoni costs at retail. It's the first really effective treatment for hepatitis C, and Gilead Sciences is charging more than $1000 per pill because they can. And despite its enormous cost, it's quickly becoming the top-selling prescription drug. (At least, that's what people without health insurance pay. People on Medicare pay "nothing", the government pays and it comes out of everyone's taxes. And people in countries with a national health service pay a tiny fraction of the American price, because other countries won't allow a drug manufacturer to screw people using patents. What, don't you enjoy being screwed?)
Hilarious LA Times article about the "drug war" in a "decaying area"; where I live. And PS, Rob Brown is an asshole.
Bay area "foodies" are disgusting. They cause idiocy like this to happen. Plus, foods that only poor people ate before, like kale and collard greens, are now being "gentrified". So fewer people can afford them.
If you think 4chan or 8chan are misogynistic and depressing, have a look at Wizardchan's "depression" section. A haven for the most antisocial, arrogant nerds you've ever seen. After that, no one can complain about /b/ ever again. (And yes, I know that moot recently "retired". Wish he'd take his dedicated fans with him.)
Something I bet you didn't know about Charlie Hebdo: they hated Apple, because Apple would not sell Charlie Hebdo on the Apple Store without reserving the right to censor it. And here are some of the cartoons they drew about the dispute.
Now it's being claimed that Miralax might cause autism in children. Everything causes autism, according to autism "experts" like mothers with autistic children (cough Jenny McCarthy cough).
Walmart is your friend. Walmart will not hurt you.
Why aren't you going to Ratcave? Are the beavers ruining your paradise?

Pop quiz: who in this story is more pathetic, stupid and insane, the animal-rights people or the cops who spied on them?
"Data mining has become so sophisticated that campaigns can now target voters by mashing together public records with much more personal information from Facebook feeds and consumer reports that offer such nuggets as who has sterling credit ratings but hasn’t purchased a car in seven or more years. One company even wants to get into the political market by selling campaigns data that identifies which voters sought information on Viagra and other erectile-dysfunction drugs." So? Just vote dickless.
"What To Do When You Discover Your Co-Worker Writes Erotic Hulk Fanfic", my ass. If you look into Archive Of Our Own closely, you will find a story about the Hulk trying to stuff Loki up his ass. Fan fiction reaches its pinnacle of development.
Elana Pritchard, blah. Old Dick, yech.
2015 isn't especially wonderful so far, eh?
(BTW, if you love to read about Reddit's general idiocy and madness, try r/redditcritiques. We're posting our considerable database of Reddit scandals there, slowly. Feel it.)

Been on a commercial airliner lately? Wondered why all the "special fees"? It's because they're the only way the airlines can generate a good profit. And that's for one simple, harsh fact: no matter how much they complain about poor service, Americans want cheap fares above all. Live free or die, fuckers!
Violence! Crime! Terror! Bullshit!!!
Mr. Seastrand doesn't need to worry -- all he has to do is move to another state, and they'll probably make him a sworn police officer in no time. This "never be allowed to serve as a police officer again" crap only applies in New Hampshire. Then he can go back to doing disgusting things to teenaged girls.
"PlumpJack Winery in Napa Valley, the first high-end American producer to take a chance on screw caps in the late 1990s, was scorned for making the switch.
"We got faxes and voice messages saying 'Your career is over,' 'It's a screwy idea' and that restaurants would have to start charging a 'screw fee,'" said John Conover, PlumpJack's general manager." Yes, the wine business is (still) full of screaming cunt-boys.
Don't forget to donate to the Scrotum Warmer project.
And here's something to chew on for the new year:
"I'm a male in my early 20's. If you were to ask me who I am, the 1st thing I would instantly say is "I am an anal vore fanatic". It's who I am. It's my identity. Anal vore is my life, and it felt important enough for me to tell my friends and family."
What is "anal vore"? Look around Eka's Portal for a while and see for yourself. "Vore fetishism" is just as popular as "bronyism", but even more underground. And how does your insanity compare to that?

Oh, you think a highly educated Harvard professor would be wiser than to harass a Chinese restaurant for days, for the "terrible crime" of overcharging him $4? You would be wrong. The academic world is just as petty and stupid and hostile as any other world.
If you think PewDiePie is the worst of YouTube, consider the paranoid rants of this gentleman. Suddenly PewDiePie doesn't seem so awful.
The Consumer Electronics Show is fast approaching. And someone in the CES staff had the brilliant idea of creating a "meme generator". Which attracted considerable mockery.
Yes, you fucknozzles, people steal magazines from doctor's offices. Especially celebrity-scandal titles. Been doing it for decades.
If you really want to learn about the Sony Pictures hack in depth, this is your best bet. Don't bother with the Wikipedia article, it is being chopped at by two of Wikipedia's biggest assholes, "Everymorning" and Michael "Masem" Neylon. (The latter is a brony. I kid you not.)
And remember: boycott Seth Rogen movies. Because he's a pussy.
And go look at Ratcave, because you're a pussy.

Good article about the stalling of progress. It's easy: baby boomers are old and in the way.
In case you need more reminding of why Mormon extremists are bad people, and Arizona and Utah can eat collective shit and die, read this.
Me sad, because more furry conventions don't get evacuated due to poison gas.
And I want to see Jeff Bezos, shoved entirely up an elephant's ass. Why can't we have these little things?
