It strikes me that maybe I find this mean-spirited, unoriginal, and painfully unfunny because I have a cat and would literally kill babies to keep the li'l dude safe. I am offended by this because I have a baby and would kill kittens to… [more]

I spent three months in Central America last summer. 1. San Juan del sur is touristy, but neither dangerous nor a hell-hole. There was a lot of partying and drugs there, though. Not at all tranquil. That said, if you go to one of the resort-y… [more]

"Austerity" has nothing to do with cutting debt. It's just 'cutting taxes on the wealthy', 'cutting services for the poor'. It's still Keynesian economics, but for the benefit of a tiny, tiny percentage of the population. It's working… [more]

I am also trying to understand why women see it in such a negative light. I think any time your partner spends a large amount of time essentially ignoring you while you're right there is going to be irritating. And I think any compulsive… [more]

Balearic is distinctly not a genre in the sense that most people consider music genres, it's more of a mood, or a style of djing. It's actually about drawing from multiple genres to create a particular feel or emotion. [more]
