fek: And frankly: Who has positioned themselves to score a raise, from their current boss, or a potential boss? That last question’s the hardest, but it’s essential to the equation. So we developed a fairly-but-not-completely arbitrary number to deal with it: the B.P.N. (orBallpark Poachability Number). It’s an index compiled from salaries known, either of The Poachables’ or those around...
Condolences to everyone at The Awl who didn’t make the poachable list.

skybarn: “He went too far” “When does it get funny?” “Why did he sit on a tire?” Critics are angered, flummoxed.
michelledean: I am about ready to sacrifice my left foot for an end to this humidity. Come on, planet! Michelle’s left foot for an end to this humidity! How can you pass this up?
Vintage Sarah Palin, on the TV or something: “Someone like me who’s a maverick? I do go rogue and I call it like I see it and I don’t mind stirring it up in order to get people to think and debate aggressively to find solutions to the problems that our country is facing,” Palin continued. “Somebody like me, is a title and a campaign too shackling? Does that prohibit me from being out...
It’s really Balk-y out there.
aatombomb: l3fan-o-rama: delgrosso: beefranck: smartasshat: beefranck: Unpopular opinion. Instant, overblown outrage. Long-winded, overly-personal and emotional response. Sarcastic derision of everyone involved. animated gif Meta-response. Lazy reblog.
nebraska-admiral replied to your post: Somehow, David Brooks made it through a column… (You only recently began following so you may not be aware that I have a fake David Brooks email account I use to troll media figures, including the World News Daily guy and Jill Abramson.) I like the cut of your jib, nebraska-admiral.
Somehow, David Brooks made it through a column explaining how to save the world economy without once mentioning punctuality or hygiene.
hman: “…West’s daughter told The Dallas Morning News that the family plans on “tossing Dorito chips in before they put the dirt over the urn.” Arch West, creator of Doritos, died in Texas last week. Thankfully, Doritos will live on.
Nice to see the NYPD legitimize Occupy Wall Street with knuckleheaded counter-protest tactics. Next time hide your badges, dudes!
choire replied to your post: There is truly nothing finer than David T. Roth… *googles proper nouns* Well, Peter Cetera was the lead singer of Chicago.
There is truly nothing finer than David T. Roth and Jeff Johnson yakkin’ about football (now for GQ): Jeff: I think Jack Del Rio is making Marcedes Lewis give fans rides home. David: It couldn’t be Del Rio. He cranks Peter Cetera in his Aerostar and doesn’t like it when people talk over the songs. So you just have to sit there and listen to this long mixtape he made in which...
Is it possible?
muchlessmuchmore: That the same troll is crisscrossing the country, booing at the most trollishly opportune times at all these Republican debates? Bwoo ha ha ha ha.
Yielding to a Beating
faith-and-credit: I wonder if Bernanke is surprised by the dive the markets took today. Looks like a lot of people yanked their money out of equities and put them into long term U.S. Treasuries and Mortgage Backed Securities. And why not, if you know the price of both is going to go up because the government is buying? It’s the closest thing to certainty you can get in a volatile and...

If it holds up, it means that EVERYTHING WE THOUGHT WE KNEW ABOUT ASTROPHYSICS WAS WRONG.
Elizabeth Warren on class warfare: You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police-forces and fire-forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize...
Just to clarify
michelledean: My issue with Thought Catalog is not the age. It’s the dumb. I am a complete absolutist about disliking dumb. For me, any day I get to say, “Whippersnappers!” is a good day.
Brit Hume demonstrating an astonishing ignorance: If (income) inequality is at a very much higher level, who cares? I’m pretty sure I can think of more than one. Maybe two or three? It’s like the dude has never heard of history.
Sometimes, David Brooks says dumb things because he knows he’s expected to say dumb things, and spending a whole day writing a not-dumb column is a lot less fun than watching the entire “Petticoat Junction” box-set and scribbling out a dumb column in the town car on the way to dinner.
We outnumber them [Liberals] in this country, and we have the guns.– Andrew Breitbart, speaking to a Tea Party crowd in Lexington, Ma. Mediaite (via brooklynmutt ) Is this not a threat? If say, Michael Moore or Bill Maher said this to a room full of angry liberals, would the news not cover this? (via knifegoesin) They may or may not have the guns. But we have...
And that is why I don’t go to air shows.
I kinda want to write about the Heritage Foundation study that claims that the poor people got it good because they have PS2s, but then I would have to spend time reading a Heritage Foundation study, and my office has no shower.
artyucko replied to your post: Hey, has anyone adopted that blue-eyed baby seal… “Luckily, Mr Strakhov was with staff from a dolphinarium who took it into their care.” And imagine the looks on the faces of the dolphins when the blue-eyed baby seal arrives.
Hey, has anyone adopted that blue-eyed baby seal yet? That seems like something someone should do.
I just remembered that I forgot to work for Black Book. Dammit.
There is also the matter of rail being a tempting terrorist target to consider,...– More Tea Party logic (via Fresh Loaf) This is why people should never stand in groups of more than three.
