Microgrievance in Microcosm

Do read this article written by a woman with celiac disease, complaining about how greater awareness of her condition has caused her some easily circumvented social difficulty.

In sum, the gluten-free revolution (which sounds like the name of the lamest peasant uprising ever) has made her life much, much better, but then it made it slightly less better, so she writes an article on Jezebel enlightening everyone about this massive injustice, instead of, I dunno, say, informing the waiter that she really is celiac, and she really does need gluten-free food.

Glad we're all on the same page here.

Something new on Return of Kings

Return of Kings is made up of three basic kinds of content: Horseshit, shit that we've heard before, and shit Roosh says.

There's now a fourth category.

Now, The Harem, The Tribe, And The Pride, isn't perfect (for starters, I really don't think the "A" in "And" should be capitalized), but it grabs a hold of an important idea.

Personally, I think he missed one: The Others. Others are pretty much all enemies until proven friends. In some parts of this country, it's difficult to imagine that such human enemies still exist, but they absolutely do, and I'm not just talking about thugs with knives who want the contents of your wallet.

One could argue that you might split The Others into The Others and The Enemy, but this is more a distinction in how well you know all these Others than anything else.

This is a bit like saying that if a photographer takes a picture of you, anyone else who wants to use that photograph for something has to ask your mother for permission.

If copyright law were this simple, we wouldn't have copyright lawyers.

Fourteen treatises waste away as mere drafts in my posts folder.

Maybe I should stop having sex with so many exotic women and get on finishing a few of them.
