On Meet America's Most Worthless Human Being

@OllyOlly The website did have a disclaimer. I get that a lot of people need to save their pennies. Totally. But "ripped off" is strong for $4. The issue here isn't just the first email. To reframe it that way is not giving the story its due.

On The Economics of Dating, OKCupid Edition

I think the match percentage is very personal ... am I really looking for somebody who is 90% like me? Not really. I like reading people's profiles to get a better sense of it. If the match is lower than 60%, the profile usually shows me why.

Get an electric shaver. So, so worth the money. I got a Remington one on Amazon. I use it all the time now.

On "If That Thief Counts as a Customer, I Had Two Customers That Week:" A RadioShack Story

I can't believe the return deductions were legal. Oh my God. I know it's different from state to state (and from country to country), but in Ontario, you HAVE to be paid minimum wage, even if you work on commission. You cannot be paid less, ever. Damn.

On Is There a Class Component to Catcalls

Uh, yeah ... I related a story about my friend where she feels creeped out at work by a guy who stares at her body, and my co-worker was like, "Some guys just don't know they're being creepy." Ok, wow, that really helped. And how do you know not to stare at women's bodies? Thanks.

Yeah, key to buying plane tickets is that once you buy them, DO NOT CHECK THE PRICES EVER AGAIN.
