I love this, and I nominate Elizabeth Warren as the leader of the revolt. In real life though, I'll just continue working my uninteresting corporate job so I can continue making payments until the debt is gone. Maybe then I will be able to regain hope, restore my imagination, and become a fully functioning creative and energized member of society. Which, incidentally, was the whole aim of going into debt for my liberal arts degree. Call me an entitled child of the 80's, but I thought I could contribute to the world.
@Anne Helen Petersen An essential part of male charm for me is the sense that the man genuinely likes women, e.g., sees women's essential humanity, not only their sexual objectivity. A man who seems to enjoy the company of women, as people or friends, is considered by people of limited empathy as emasculated, or "gay".

I live in Chicago. Rahm Emmanuel is DEFINITELY a Slytherin, regardless of where you come down on the Hillary question.

@sony_b Mudders' milk.
For a recent viewing Magic Mike: a special cocktail I recently invented that is half boxed pinot grigio, half Fresca. I call it the "elastic waistband" because it gets you drunk so why try harder?
@royaljunk Any, as long as you let it sit first.
I'll personally be alternating between bourbon rocks and vodka martinis.
Wine only turns into alcohol if you let it sit. Also, vodka goes bad once it's opened.

DON'T YOU TALK SHIT ABOUT KALE
Also, I feel like watching all of The X-Files, back to back without stopping, would induce chronic insomnia and/or permanent brain damage. Watching all of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, back to back without stopping, is the one that makes you good at fighting.
