On Ask a Glutton: I Need to Trick Everyone Into Thinking I'm an Adult This Thanksgiving

You kinda lost me at "make 2 pies from scratch starting right now."

On Remembering the Early Days of Jezebel with Anna Holmes

@ipomoea The French Don't Believe in Consent Day was the exact moment I bailed for good, too. That was after Anna was gone, right? I'd be interested in a behind-the-scenes explanation of how that thing ended up on the site (and some other pieces as well -- I remember at several moments thinking "look, the Jez staff is not dumb. They MUST know this is going to upset their readership. What is the deal here?").

On Shop Talk

UGH those little JimmyJane bullets. I love them in theory, but in practice the quality is terrible. Just terrible. I've had two of them completely break down (button stops changing speeds, won't turn off, battery terminal breaks, etc.) within just a few uses.

On Friday Bargain Bin: The Leftovers

@special_boots That's all I could see, too. And the print is the same on the back so the tubes turn into butt cheeks. Also there are breasts...?

On Why Aren't We on OKCupid?

@muralgirl Yep, the no-snark method has worked for me when conversations seem to die out. "Hey, I bet school/work/whatever is keeping you super busy right now, but I'd still be up for grabbing a drink..."

On Math: Still Irrelevant

@pupshah Question number 5 seems to be...simple subtraction. 7.2 - 4.4. Or am I going crazy?

Out of the first few pages, the only thing I don't remember at all is how to calculate square roots by hand. And now I'm confused about this whole article, although I totally agree that standardized tests shouldn't prevent someone from graduating.
