On Is Air Conditioning Worth It?

I am pro-home A/C, as a person who lives in a place with yucky summers and prefers to be able to sleep in the summer. Office A/C, though--don't get me started. I am so glad that article brings up the fact that office buildings are horrible and wasteful: "“We are probably overcooling our office buildings by 4 to 6 [degrees] F just so that office workers, particularly the males, can wear their business suits,” wrote Richard de Dear, who is head of architectural design science at the University of Sydney and a researcher on thermal comfort." Sadly my rage about this doesn't keep me warm, so I'm wearing a sweater and still freezing to death at work even though it was like 90 out today.

On "Offices For Introverts" Designed By Someone Who Doesn't Understand Introverts

My workplace is 100 percent fishbowl offices! As an introvert, I generally don't mind it, especially since it's an immense improvement over the low-walled cube I used to sit in at our old location. It does drive me kind of crazy that no one respects a closed door when they can see you sitting right there, so being able to adjust the opacity would be pretty nice.

On Find-My-Phone Vigilante Justice Sweeps Nation

@jquick Yes, that sounds like a good use of resources. A lot of places do handle non-emergency police calls through 911.

On How Much Is a Diet Coke Worth?

@Adouble Disagree, the Billfold turned into a daddy blog after a couple of Josh Michtom's pieces ran.

On That Thing, That Thing, That 1 Thing

@andnowlights Very short conversation my soon-to-be-husband and I had on the subject of me hyphenating my name: Him: "I think it'd be easier that way!" Me: "Easier for whom?!?!"
