    I am on the tertiary of flyover country and I'd love to see black suits here, or suits of any kind. Mostly cargo shorts, fubu tees, and Timbo boots.

    I think I loved this one more than the black suits, personally. It's a solid act of phonyism that's so prevalent in my 20-somethings age group. Talk as if you're an expert, put on a big show, and just fake it till you make it!


    Also, I fucking hate buzzfeed and their ilk. The internet was, at one point, a great place full of better discourse etc. I understand buzzfeed et al are "giving consumers what they want", but what does it say about society that "what people want" is pictures of TV shows and movies attempting to convey some shitty message? Of course, the state of most writing I've encountered makes it "buzzfeed in text format", again for easy digestion and not having to think. What happened to good long prose?

    People call you out on blatantly stealing good long prose.

    Somehow, people haven't called out buzzfeed on their blatantly commercial use of images that they do not own the rights to (although at least now they have started providing a "source" to some random tumblr that also doesn't have rights to the images).

    Just an FYI. Good article on the coming changes to Facebook's and Google's privacy policies. What you can and cannot do about them. Worth a read if use FB or have an account with Google.

    Thanks for posting, JrM. Obviously, people should be aware of this stuff.

    But honestly, it's hard for me to believe anyone halfway intelligent person can have a Facebook account without assuming that anything posted there is effectively open to the public (or at least to anyone who cares enough to try to find it).

    The problem is they keep changing the rules. So people go into using the service under the assumption they have everything set up to keep a level privacy they are comfortable with and FB turns around and alters how the service works.

    Is it really the users fault if (for example) they have a "private" photo album up and one day FB takes that setting away and makes it open to the public by default? The user's action was done under good faith to the rules as they were when the album was created.

    I agree with the idea at this point you shouldn't trust FB, but many users do. My opinion is, this slow creep of privacy erosion on Facebook could ultimately lead to it's downfall.

    Yeah, it doesn't really fit with social convention that something that is apparently secure is made less so by the provider. We are used to upgrades in security and improvements in systems, now we have to mentally switch gear and trust everything a little less with each passing day.

    Someone I know from grad school, who I am only friends with as a legacy from that time, just posted bragging that she didn't fall for the Nigerian inheritance scam.

    We're all very proud of you for being so astute. Please let us know what you think about those emails Microsoft is paying people to forward to everyone they know.

    I can't believe people actually think Kanye's BBC and JK interview was anything other than incoherent drivel:
