On Ann Friedman's Best Things of 2012

@hotdog take your shoes off that nice carpet! That's how they get worn (and why people with nice carpets make people take their shoes off inside)

On Orrr You Could Just Not Say Anything?

Like the Three Cups of Tea fiasco, this was a narrative that people, including Ira Glass I bet, sooooo deeply wanted to believe. It provided pre-digested morsels that helped simplify a complicated topic and people ate.it.up. The reporter based in Shanghai was able to unravel the story pretty easily because he, ostensibly, has something more than a naive grasp of how things work in China.

I wanted to slap both Daisy and Ira Glass.

On Love Me!

I hate the current trend, sadly promoted on this website on posts/by posters that shall remain nameless, whom I otherwise like, to end every sentence -- in writing or in video -- with a question mark. I know you want to sound ironic, but it makes you sound insecure. But maybe that's me?

On The Sleeping Whale

@dabbyfanny completely agree. Look at the crap on this website that gets a million comments and this only gets a few? Priorities, people.
