Predictable, but that doesn't really take away from its satirical quality.

Someone tell me this is a joke.  Please.
With US American society as it is – where things are expected to be open and available for any amount of poking and scrutiny – being an introvert isn’t exactly easy. This culture has been built for extroverts, often leaving introverts behind and feeling less-than. Check out this article to see

I wouldn't call it insane, but certainly feeble-minded.

sigh - and the left continues to not see the fact that the CEO here is doing exactly what RFRA is explicitly permitting - freedom of conscience to act on their deeply held beliefs.  Anyone with better debating chops feel free to contribute.
No small decision, this. And it appears they're carrying through on it. - Keith J Davies - Google+

Next time someone comes around with a health-based conspiracy theory, the proper response will be:

I'd bet it's more due to that super-dangerous Dihydrogen Monoxide. That's where I'd put my money. Most people with that problem were probably exposed to DHMO. Parents give that stuff to their kids like it was water, without ever realising how dangerous it is!

I'd go on, but I have to take my kids to swimming lessons.

It's dangerous stuff!  Remember last year there was a radio contest to see who could drink the most in the shortest amount of time, and one of the contestants died.

But it's not just radio contests ; according to the US NCHS report 46,419 people died in between 1999-2010 due to immersion in this stuff, in the United States alone.  Make sure you keep your kids away from DHMO!

Is this reasonable and correct because it's anti-feminist, or is it anti-feminist because it's reasonable and correct?

The ironic thing is how critical thinking and expression isn't allowed anymore on campus. Some progress.
The universities, under the banner of hollow diversity and the even more hollow and self-contradictory banner of tolerance, are mutating into thought-suppressing machines.

Did you hear about the math teacher who loved his subject so much he legally changed his last name to "Calculations" so he could be known by his students as "Mr. Calculations"? Well, his daughter also wanted to be a math teacher, but things didn't work out so well for her. No one would hire a math teacher named "Miss Calculations".

Well, no, I wish the tax system weren't so convoluted as to require software in the first place.

Can you keep a secret?

So can I.  That's why I'm not going to tell you.
