We need more debates. Not just for President, but for every elected office and for issues as well. Here’s my idea from four years ago. I wish I had pushed it harder: Dedicate a half hour every night during the last month to a debate series. Put it on a major channel. Or devote an entire cable channel to this, year round. Or a special section of YouTube. Each side is invited. There is no...
michaelikesit: Wikipedia entry for my Myers-Briggs personality type. I’ve been looking at this stuff quite a bit lately. It’s time for me to change gears. INFJ here. Consider looking into Strengths Finder 2.0. Myers-Briggs is helpful, but I found Strengths Finder 2.0 to be even more helpful. BTW, I’m an Ideation, Responsibility, Connectedness, Learner, Futuristic. That’ll...

Pete Carrol ALWAYS dresses well
sarahchristine: Also, we really should be rooting for each other because a USC/UGA national championship game would be sweeeet. Hm. Yeah, except I was thinking maybe UGA could play Mizzou in the Cotton Bowl and USC could play Nebraska in the Holiday Bowl. We’ll let Oklahoma win it all.
sarahchristine: shaunbwilson: Just because I’m not Tumbling about it doesn’t mean I’m not watching the game on Sportsline.com. I’m looking forward to USC losing and a Big 12 team moving up into #1. Now… Go Alabama! Bama fans on my Dashboard? How’d they ever get here? No, seriously, I’m pretty sure no one in the fanbase has the capacity for original thought or interesting discourse or can...
dhk: Starving children in Africa are fed when USC loses. When USC loses, it helps the global economy. USC losing prevents STD transmission for 12 hours in a 100mile radius of their defeat. USC is a team that in the SEC would get pwn’d by Vanderbilt.
dearconbon: sanchez can stay. Touchdown, USC. I think it’s funny how no one on Tumblr cares about college football except for sarahchristine. You all went to small liberal arts colleges with no athletic programs, didn’t you? Just because I’m not Tumbling about it doesn’t mean I’m not watching the game on Sportsline.com. I’m looking forward to USC losing and a Big 12 team...
The New Adventures of Old Christine
Ritchie: Can you get a divorce from a "friendship marriage"?
Christine: No, no, no... "Friendship marriages" never end and nobody is ever sad!
Matthew: Yeah, it's like Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.
billda: I used to really like Obama. Back when he was a new senator (which I know wasn’t long ago) I used to read his speeches and get energized. It was fun. It really was. Then, instead of just listening to his speeches and getting caught up in how nice it would be if what he said would actually work, I tried to figure out how, in reality, things would work. And I realized: never gonna...
YouTube: Wario Land →
My very favorite games are the Mario Kart series and any Mario side scroller. It’s been way too long since a new side scroller came out (aside from New Super Mario Brothers which I’ve played to death on my DS). I’m super excited about Wario Land.

The Cab Ride I’ll Never Forget →
After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 80’s stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940s movie. By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets. There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on...
Earlier this week, I was talking with my sister Pat about the turmoil on Wall Street. She told me that she had a conversation with a financial adviser in Birmingham who advised one of his wealthy clients to take all of his money out of the market and bury it in a hole in Montana. “I’m not wealthy,” she told him, “What should I do?” “Go to Montana and look for freshly dug holes” he advised. (via...

thumbwrestlinginbaltimore: Where does sleeping in your car at lunch rank? (And to this end, is sleeping in the conference room more or less inappropriate?) Yesterday I turned off the light in my office and took a nap under my desk. If you decide to do this, I recommend this.

The Gentleman's Guide to the Calling Card →
jratlee: krs: “To the unrefined or unbred, the visiting card is but a trifling and insignificant bit of paper; but to the cultured disciple of social law, it conveys a subtle and unmistakable intelligence. Its texture, style of engraving, and even the hour of leaving it combine to place the stranger, whose name it bears, in a pleasant or a disagreeable attitude even before his manners,...
The death of OPEC →
Saudi Arabia walked out on OPEC yesterday. It said it would not honor the cartel’s production cut. It was tired of rants from Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and the well-dressed oil minister from Iran. As the world’s largest crude exporter, the kingdom in the desert took its ball and went home. As the Saudis left the building the message was shockingly clear. According to The New York...
