On What My Mom Wishes I Was Blogging About

@Sarah Botsch-McGuinn@facebook YES. Also "What people she saw at the grocery store's kids who are about my age are doing these days/how many kids they have/who has life-threatening illnesses or other catastrophes these days among them." Ayyyyyy.

On What My Mom Wishes I Was Blogging About

This is so, so great. Can "Things Moms Tell Their Daughters When Said Daughters Are Desperate to Get Off The Phone" be a new Hairpin thing? Here's my contribution: lineup changes within the alto section of St. Paul's church choir, week-by-week, and the various illnesses that have caused said lineup changes. Ok you guys go!

On Please Enjoy This Polar Bear Content

@adorable-eggplant You are so, so right to be afraid of polar bears. I am absolutely not kidding when I say I was nearly attacked by one (archaeology in Labrador, it's a long story) and they WILL KILL YOU. They are at the top of their food chain! They do not give a single fuck! And if you're going to the Arctic, bring someone who knows their way around a shotgun.

On NYT Magazine's Hillary Cover Makes No Sense: A Brief Scientific Chat

@Gef the Talking Mongoose OMG you read my mind - the Mighty Boosh was the very first thing that came to mind when I saw that abomination of a Hillary-planet. Well done.

On NYT Magazine's Hillary Cover Makes No Sense: A Brief Scientific Chat

First: This is so great. Thank you.
Second: I can't stop looking at Hillareptune (Hillercury? Hillearth?). The face. The planet covered in skin. It has a dark power over me.

On The Definitive Guide to Attending This Summer's Music Festivals

"This is in Delaware." That's the one that got me. Also, this made me nearly pee myself: http://livemusicblog.com/2010/08/02/video-what-phish-sounds-like-to-people-that-dont-like-phish/

On Spite Houses, Ranked by Spite-ness

@kentuckienne Yes, this is exactly how my rowhouse in Philly is - should have been more specific! A few more windows do make a difference. And blinds/curtains. :)

On Spite Houses, Ranked by Spite-ness

This is great! Though I should point out, re: the point about "just windows in front and back" on the Hollensbury spite house - this is every row house that's not on the end of the row, in every city that has them (Philly, Baltimore, etc.) So that part's just the quirky nature of rowhouses, not something inherently spiteful about that particular design.

On 917 People Who Are Hotter Than Benedict Cumberbatch

Perhaps this has been said previously, but: HOT IS NOT THE POINT OF BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH. It's like saying an apple isn't salty enough.
