commented on Headline of the Day?
I know plenty of female friends who have gone a "date" with someone in who they are completely uninterested in order to score a free meal.
This girl is a just a little more .... ambitious. But she's playing the same game as the rest of us.
commented on You Probably Can't Even Read This Headline, Can You?
When I was in Journalism school - we were told to write to an 8th grade level. Now I think it's been lowered to something like 6th grade. My editor wouldn't let me run Tempus Fugit as part of a headline the other day because she was afraid too many of our readers wouldn't be able to understand it.
commented on Where Did the Editors Go?
I work at a newspaper - when I started there (not even 3 years ago) every page got three reads before it was considered done. Thanks to budget/manpower cuts a lot of stuff only gets one now.
I can imagine publishing houses are feeling the same pinch? Or maybe letting the experienced, costly (read: good) editors go in favor of cheaper, green new hires?

@5 - I agree - getting an erection is half the fun and shouldn't be a problem if the guy is as turned on as she says they are.
There must be some crucial piece of information being left out. Like maybe the entire time they are working on her they're sitting on a bicycle seat. I hear that can cause numbness downtown.
commented on Lunchtime Quickie: YES or NO?
Honestly, I'm just shocked that the campaign is a failure. Tailly looks like just the sort of useless nerd-bait that usually rakes in 300 grand on Kickstarter/Indiegogo.
It also seems like something that you'd read about being hugely popular in Japan. Like those weird face-bagels.
