Thank you @28. Jesus, @10 is really looking for reasons to feel sorry for him/her self. Get a roommate, you're not a victim of the married overlords.

Mr Sirois, please read @13 and get your family health insurance, for the love of God.

Thank goodness those shots given to the cooks are accepted as currency everywhere. Their landlords love getting partially paid in J├Ąger.

@9 Ha, if only! All the arguments against gay marriage are so weak, if the Supreme Court doesn't finish the job with its decision on this case, it will be a sad day.

Those radios better last for 100 years at $250 million dollars. Not less than 20 like the current ones.

@13 It was actually Alito before it got fixed... I can see how one might think it was Ruth, but Roberts, no way.

You know that's a picture of Alito, not Scalia as the caption suggests, right? I would hope so, given that you're reporting on the Supreme Court.

Also, fuck the shitty forced use of Shutterstock photos all over Slog, it is so low-budget and annoying.

This might be your best one yet, Callan. Definitely the best part of the Stranger.

@18 San Francisco?
Mar 23 deign_to_say commented on What Is "Clickbait"?.
Christopher, I think it is now often used as the publishing of posts/articles that are purposefully very controversial, so as to spur a strong reaction on both sides. Cynics would view it as a method to primarily generate page-views rather than start an honest debate.

I think the whole 'wish the abused child would have suffered more' in the Boudinot article especially contributed to people calling it clickbait. It's obviously excessive, possibly a joke in poor taste, not truly germane to the author's point, and provokes a strong reaction for many.

While I agree your definition is correct, the phrase's broader usage has somewhat changed.
