On How To Do Pull-Ups

I've always wondered why pullups the end-all be-all of physical fitness. It's not like a pull-up is useful in a bunch of real-life situations - for that I would look to vertical climbing where leg-levers and arm-levers can be used in tandem, and people with long arms compared to their body can compensate with their other muscles.

On If They Can't Dance, They Can't Kiss!

I went to high school in the City of Angels/Thong Song era too, and no one went to school dances at my school (except for prom of course). I went to homecoming dance my sophomore year and there were maybe 100 kids there out of a school of 1200.

On Our Clif Bars, Ourselves

I don't agree with a single word of this article, but maybe that's because my true identity is first name Ted last name Bundy.

On Who Is "You"? (Mad)

Arthur Chu is an occassional commenter on another site I frequent, so it's strange to see him get national press! There have been a few other contestants over the years who hunt for daily doubles, and as a viewer I do get disconcerted at the questions being all out of order, but on the other hand I love when people play creatively within the rules.

On No Future: The Sing-Off and the Art of A Cappella

My aggressive avoidance of anything that looks vaguely "viral" means this is the first time I've seeing Pentatonix! I love everything about that group! Their choreography! The beatboxing! Ahhh!

On Erica Gets An IV

I have tiny tiny arm veins so this is relevant to me. I once made a poor dr's assistant cry in frustration because she could not draw blood after 5!!! sticks! I warned her! I warned her about my veins! Some people seem to take, "I have tiny veins that are hard to stick" as a challenge, unfortunately for me.

On A Plan for Dealing With This

@Jinxie Maybe I just over-explained the joke? Although then we're just laughing at someone who's likely depressed.

On A Plan for Dealing With This

People without a chair when the music stopped didn't end up in suburban San Diego, which sounds like a pretty regular and not-that-terrible place to live.

On Now That I'm Married, I Only Use Crystal

@509331430@twitter Just don't register? My husband and I didn't register. We some unexpected cash. We got some incredibly sweet, unexpected gifts from family members who wanted to give us gifts. We got some booze. It all worked out.

On Now That I'm Married, I Only Use Crystal

@muddgirl Yeah, my husband's cousins all had dollar dances, but no other wedding I've been to has had them! It's definitely cultural.
