i've never really read a tech blog in my life & now i understand why

yeah i think its a pretty cool idea

feel like it could be expanded to different categories too--would love a version of that for restaurants ("best for visiting family"/"best for cheap date"/etc) for example so i didnt have to sort through 100s of capsule reviews or pages of restaurant world gossip

whenever i've read any of his poems i've been disappointed but his drawings & these couple essays, like the one about poetry scenes, are great i think. the first graf of this one is terrific, & the part about not making murders too interesting. i don't think he's partic unusual or anything, just funny/well observed &c

I just couldn't stop thinking about how exactly that could have happened.

A classic from the Straight Dope:

Favorite section:

Frequently the victim suffers the injury while kneading his member in order to reduce an erection, a technique that in my experience usually has the opposite effect. One moron "awoke during the night with a desire to urinate," whereupon he "hit his erect penis with his hand in order to alleviate this desire." Other reported causes: rolling over in bed, hitting the bedpost, getting caught in your pajamas, falling out of a tree, being thrown against the knob of a motorcycle saddle, and so on.

Fracture always occurs during erection, making you wonder what some of the victims were up to. Consider one case involving a 38-year-old ranch hand. "The (medical) history was vague and difficult to obtain," the reporting physician writes. "The injury had occurred in the corral. It was impossible to get the exact details … His family was of the opinion that he had been kicked by one of the horses." Tell it to Catherine the Great, buddy.

3 weeks, 5 days a.i.
Since I can’t do much, we get creative. I’ve never given “the shocker” before, but it seems to be working great, for both of us. “I really like you,” she says afterward.

“Good to hear, Mrs. Thatcher.”
