Low Brow is really fun. Sit there and hit the reload button to hear people's tales of woe, misery and wild times. Some pretty funny tales there.

milnak: Wow...that's pretty addictive. Look at two or three, think, "Aw, just one more..." Then three or four more. Then five more. By the time you look at the clock, you've wasted two hours reading tales of woe. Still, though, there's surely enough time to just look a few more. Before long, your wife is wondering if you are ever going to come to bed, and then your kids are grown-up and married, and they're prying my cold, dead hand off of the mouse that is permanently positioned over the "Refresh" button. Wait. Not THAT addictive.

So - what do you estimate the number of truth-to-lies ratio to be? Not that it really matters, of course, but surely they can't ALL be true. Right? And I suppose it's cathartic, to some degree - "What a jerk! How could anyone say THAT?"

Addictive.

I liked it better the first time around when it was Steps, a novel by Jerzy Kosinski.

This is like providing a response forum for those normally being Kvetched about.

I don't understand the attraction of writing things on the internet.
