So I guess that Gen Y has gone straight from being whiny, entitled dickheads whose only redeeming quality was our entrepreneurship, to being irrelevant and also apparently never really that entrepreneurial in the first place, according to Salon. I guess Gen X, the Boomers, and the Greatest Generation can all breathe a sigh of relief knowing that they can blame us for … I don’t know, whatever it is they’ve been complaining about for the last few years.

We’re coming up on Week 4, the season is almost a third over already, and if you’re in a fantasy league, this means you’ve had plenty of time to see the true colors of the people you fake-own football teams with: and as it turns out, that color is obnoxious. If you have the misfortune of being a slave to your lineup week in and week out, you’ve probably met one, or all, of these fantasy league jerks before. Keep reading »
So today in Great Achievements in Academia, some really horrible students (presumably) at the University of Chicago calling themselves the “University Electronic Army” responded to the UChicago “rapist list” thusly:
“The UEA decided that all of the feminists, SJWs, Tumblrfags, privilege checkers, humanities majors, and everyone else who faps to the word ‘triggered’ need to be reminded who’s boss around here.”

The next time anyone tells you that contraceptives aren’t “natural,” ask them how exactly they aren’t natural. Sure, it interferes with a natural bodily process, but then there’s the fact that women have been making contraceptives for all of documented history, as this Engender Health video demonstrates.
So what’s more important — the fact that women’s bodies are naturally capable of bearing children, or the fact that human psychology has always naturally bent women toward wanting to choose when and if we have children? It’s only in the last hundred years that our technology has enabled us to fulfill a dream we’ve had for over five thousand years: Some people would call that progress. [Huffington Post]
I don’t know why I expected better from Taco Bell, but here’s what puts the nail in the coffin of any faith I had in them: Apparently you can just throw any — or all — of their ingredients together, in any proportion, and come out of it with an acceptable product.
What is that? That is not how food is supposed to work. Usually if you just throw 15 ingredients together in a random pattern, your recipe is destined to taste like crud. What that means is that Taco Bell’s ingredients are so bland/salty/sugary that it just doesn’t make a difference what you do with them. What that also means is that any “new” product they come up with basically just tastes like every other product on the menu, and we’re fooling ourselves with marketing-speak.
Which is not to say I wouldn’t eat there if I really, really needed some starch. It’s still better than Denny’s. [Consumerist]
