I'm not sure I feel sorry for the 5000 people that got kicked off of the site Beautiful People. I mean, it is, after all, the most shallow dating site I've ever seen...even worse than SugarDaddie.com ("where the classy, attractive, and affluent people meet), and that's saying something pretty profound. Of course, the latter got rid of the "I Am A: Sugar Daddy searching for a: Perfect Princess" thing, which helps.
But still...kicking people off of a site right after the holidays? That's cold. I'm sure there's a special place in hell for the creators of these sites, and another, slightly less special place for the people that use them. At least I hope so.
Well, at least Charter Communications isn't the only one watching me. I was beginning to feel lonely. I mean, what good is it if only my downloads are being watched? For my money, I at least expect police officers to find out where I am and who I'm texting with no warrant! Good thing I use Sprint for my cell phone! Helloooooo big brother!
Well, we all know what everyone thinks about when they think "Mormon." Sex. Sex sex sex sex sex. Not just sex...muffin sex. It's good to know that the Mormon community has finally hired an advertising/PR firm with enough sense to capitalize on that crucial association. After all....what's a church without hot steamy commercials to stir up the faith? Or, as they put it, get "a rise" out of you?
I hate to say it, but this is just way too accurate to let go. Damn you The Onion for making me self reflexive! This is America, where it's everyone's God-given right to trample someone in his or her way during a Black Friday sale at Walmart! I mean, it's not like those sales aren't real bargains! Or that they're selling things we don't need! Or that you can find them cheaper online! Or that Walmart sold them cheaper just a few weeks before!
OK fine. You win this round. I'm still buying a new phone next year. Jerks.
This entry in Wired's blog is about a Kansas State University project to map out the "seven deadly sins" per capita across the U.S.. Although I question their definitions of some of the sins, and what they associate with them (e.g., "sloth" can stem from purchasing art...), it's fascinating and some of it is very unexpected. At least, for me.
