May 16 Orsh commented on Funny/Not Funny: Mandatory Vagina Inspections.
Did they only ask boys if they found it funny? No one asked a girl who knew they student culture whether it seemed like a hilarious send-up of uptight adults or just a creepy prank?
Apr 3 Orsh commented on Honey Maid Doubles Down on Support for Same-Sex Parents.
This is a golden age, where there's immense buying power in the hands of pro-gay people and still enough haters that you can still make an impression as a company by displaying what are increasingly entry-level vaguely progressive values.
Nov 14, 2013 Orsh commented on Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma? (I do.).
I use it because I pause at each item in a list when I actually talk and I could swear I hear it in other people's verbal lists, too, but I guess that's me projecting the way I imagine writing their list. I like that each item gets its own comma. It visually separates the list.
Nov 12, 2013 Orsh commented on The Myth of Upward Mobility in America.
Is 4% not a lot? 4% sounds like a huge percentage to me. That article doesn't indicate what qualifies as "rag-to-riches."

They give good numbers to show we're not doing as well (at disconnecting parents' outcomes from their childrens' outcomes) as the nicest countries in Europe, and that's important information.

My personal feeling is that if you're rating a place, it should get a higher rating for getting things right the first time than for responding nicely to your critiques. Cheesecake Lady is just missing the part of her brain that tells you "My preference for cheesecake shapes is not a universally accepted measure of restaurant quality."
Sep 25, 2013 Orsh commented on Woman Attempts to "Earn" Engagement by Making 300 Sandwiches.
Came here to say that she intentionally sexism-ed-up the language to make it inflammatory. @13 and @22 are ahead of me.
Sep 20, 2013 Orsh commented on "I'm Gen Y, and I Don't Feel Special or Entitled, Just Poor.".
I'm not denying that good-quality jobs are down- but is it just me, or are there, like... a LOT of people who want to write for a living? We don't need that many, and it's 1) holding down wages and 2) cultivating clickbait farms like Slate and the Daily Dot. Maybe it's my imagination- maybe all these people used to write for local newpapers that have since gone under.
Sep 20, 2013 Orsh commented on Music to Your Ears.
That quote makes me tear up and my only childhood pet was an unemotional hamster. Too much! Too intense! Now I can never hear that ringtone again without weeping!
Sep 19, 2013 Orsh commented on SLLOTD: The Anti-Choice Boyfriend.
Wait, so your rule is "fertile pro-choice girls shouldn't have premarital sex with controlling anti-choice boys, you know, unless they really want to?"
Aug 21, 2013 Orsh commented on Japan's New Normal.
I think that is probably a significant overstatement of both the probability of "screwing up" moving one fuel rod (I'm sure they'll practice a lot and move slowly) and the consequences ("poison"? Red flag). If it's his job to be a bit neurotic about this kind of thing, he's probably approaching it from the point of view of the guy who gets triple fired if there's evidence of having taken a tenth of a percent risk of increasing local solid cancer rates by 5%.
