How is stocking up on antibiotics with a clear expiration date good sense??? We're having a serious crisis of antibiotic-resistant bacteria because of over-usage, so no, I don't think stocking up just in case you feel like you might need them without the consult of a doctor is a good idea. Seriously, this is blowing my mind. Almost as much as when my Aunt was like "oh, you're sick? do you want the rest of my antibiotics from a few weeks ago? I didn't finish them." EXCEPT YOU GUYS SEEM YOUNG AND EDUCATED, WHAT ARE YOU DOING??
Chiming in here to say: Interning for the creative fields, low-paying temp jobs for people who graduate with liberal arts degrees. We've really done a great job to ensure a well-educated populace, humans.
A. This was really good! B. We have two friends in common, says FB (chicago!). I had to check to see if I knew anyone who knew anyone so level-headed!
I'm confused: here are some quotes from your previous article- "No, when you’re an assistant in your mid-twenties with a salary around the low-thirties, you say, “Thank you. When can I move in?”" And: "It’s given Alex and me a savings account." But doesn't this piece mean that you already HAD a savings account? And that you weren't just living on a 30k assistant's salary-you had a wealthy partner. I guess I just feel like the last piece was a bit disingenuous.
@SnarlFurillo YES! I felt so terrible and weird after watching it, as if I was the character or something. Dirty.
@laluchita oh please oh please do not name commenters anything. I swear to god, whenever that happens its the first sign of weird group behavior that KILLS A FUCKING WEBSITE. I can't even read the hairpin anymore; it's so much less, and I blame it on a commentariat with a strong group identity that eventually drives the content in a lesser direction. The early halcyon days of the hairpin were hilarious and sardonic and full of dark humor...then came the groupies.
@mayonegg I am friends with the girl who does that EXACT job at that EXACT brewery. She has two roommates.
I'm really glad someone mentioned that east coast skiing is perilous and terrifying, because up until this point, I thought I was just a weenie. I tried skiing once in Pennsylvania, and the whole thing was pretty much just ice. I could not figure out how there weren't at least a few deaths a DAY.
It's just the Horatio Alger story painted with a different brush.
This article is amazing.
