Now Playing Tracks

I have often wondered if Mr. Conservative/Libertarian turns down raises his company offers to *him.* Because I’ve only ever heard this argument applied to low-wage workers. Apparently, when you increase executive salaries and bonuses, that money comes out of a magical portal somewhere, so prices are unaffected. And no one ever tries to tell middle-class knowledge workers that getting a raise would only leave them worse off in the long run. It’s only ever the working poor. I guess they get paid with a different, more sinister kind of money.
Rebecca Wald, quoted in Mia Nutick - For those who are in discussions with people who believe that raising the minimum wage is bad for the people who get minimum wage, or bad for prices in general, I give you this quote which breaks it down *perfectly*: (via mslorelei)

Yup, Gawker owns both Jezebel and Kotaku. And probably other stuff.

And Kotaku as well? Well, that explains a lot, since I’ve always thought Gawker was a piece of shit site.

gawk

verb

: to stare at someone or something in a rude or stupid way

intransitive verb
:  to gape or stare stupidly

On a related note, Jezebel’s subdomain for comments and discussion is “groupthink.”

I wish I was making that up.

Here’s what Gawker Media owns, avoid these websites, do not give them traffic/ad revenue:

  • Cink.hu
  • Deadspin
  • Screamer
  • The Concourse
  • Gawker.com
  • Valleywag
  • Gizmodo
  • Sploid
  • io9
  • Jezebel
  • Kotaku
  • Lifehacker

Here’s the only site Gawker own that isn’t total shit

  • Jalopnik

Off all of these only lifehacks are even ok and you can find enough of those offsite

there are nice americans

there are rude americans

there are nice brits

there are rude brits

there are nice canadians

there’s justin bieber

Every year on Canadian Thanksgiving, we perform a ritual to purge ourselves of our rudeness, Bieber absorbs it all. He was never meant to escape, we are sorry.

He was never meant to escape.

“because of reasons” is always a legitimate reason

“because fuck you that’s why” is also acceptable 

“for science” is a good excuse

don’t forget the stars are not in position as a perfect reason to not do something

“Not since the accident.” can be the answer to any question.

you guys are leaving out “think of the children” as a way to persuade anybody to do something for you
