commented on Democrats Are Racists, Too
Reminds me of the Peachoid fiasco on House of Cards. I still say the release valve looks like a clit, not an ass hole.

For those if you clenching their butts over the use of the rather racist The Mandarine villain character: watch the movie, they did some creative story telling around it.
commented on What I'm Using Instead of Google Reader
I like Reeder, but they don't have a Windows solution for when I am at work, not to mention they are still using greader as a backend. So I am using Feedly. Apps for iPad, iPhone, and web interface like Google Reader for the desktop. I really miss Reeder's built in Readbility function for fetching the entire contents of an article without the ads or having to click through to the website. I can live without it though.
I have it configured to look just like Google Reader. You might want to play with the settings, you don't have to do the News Paper layout that it defaults to. I actually find myself getting through my feeds faster on Feedly because I can scan articles 6 or 7 at a time and mark them all as read, rather than 1 at a time.
I used to like Flipboard, especially since it integrates my Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr feeds, but there is no option for desktops at all. And it has the same problem as Reeder in that it uses Google Reader as a backend still.

@16 I agree. I have little sympathy for the pain he is in. He should have to look as the mess he made. But some responsibility goes toward the son. He's choosing to stay drunk, even if his father stacked the deck against him.
But Dad should be less concerned with it being hard for him to watch or wallowing in shame and more concerned with getting his son sober.
It's just a shitty situation all around. This is why i'd rather people smoke pot than drink. You never see a pot head smoke himself to death. Unless you count Cheeto consumption as self-harm.
commented on City Launches Campaign to "Make Seattle Happy"
I'll go, but just long enough to tell everyone to eat me. You're not supposed to be happy all the time. That's not how life it. Sometimes you get moments of joy, sometimes sadness, but most of it is boring. Unless you're on really good drugs, then its happy all the time.
