Yes, it’s true. Tucker Carlson is right. I hate white people. This secret was revealed earlier this week when Carlson’s show had a segment on “Major Websites Running Bigoted Articles” and chose to spotlight The Root. And in that spotlight, each of the articles he referenced as examples of this hate was an article I wrote—including (but not limited to) “White People Need to Be Better People” and “We Need a Reset Button or Something for White People.” I have been trying to keep this information concealed for years now. I’ve secretly hated white people since a skating party in 1992, when a white girl named Megan Lipslinker laughed at me when I fell in the rink while attempting to jump around when House of Pain’s “Jump Around” came on. Since then, my hate has done nothing but grow and become hungrier, like a guy at Old Country Buffet who’s hungry as shit but can’t eat because the server hasn’t … [Read more...] about Tucker Carlson Is Right. I Hate White People, and Here Are 20 Things I Do to Keep That Hate Alive
I hate cheese
There are no words for this calamity. A big rig, hauling thousands of bags of shredded cheese—totaling 20,000 pounds—burned to a crisp in an Office Max parking lot in a suburb of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, WTMJ reported. The incident occurred earlier this week. The fire department told WTMJ that the truck driver was driving on the highway and noticed his brakes were on fire. He pulled into an Office Max parking lot and attempted to put out the fire himself. It didn’t work. He disconnected the cab and the fire fighters took care of the rest. The truck held 20,000 pounds of Kraft and Velveeta cheese inside. A crowd formed because they “couldn’t believe what was burning.” The smell must have been incredible, too. Assistant Chief Kurt said, “It’s a very difficult fire once the cheese gets going. We also had a diesel... the combination of cheese and diesel fuel made for a pretty hot fire.” Everyone pour one out for the nachos that might … [Read more...] about Truck Hauling 20,000 Pounds Of Cheese Burns And Now It’s Gone And I Hate Everything
Teachers have been dealing with the specter of Donald Trump long before he was actually elected President of the United States. They’ve apologized for assigning the presidential debates as homework, faced frighteningly emboldened bullies, and comforted the terrified children of immigrants. This was imagined, by many, to be a temporary problem. The educators of this country are now dealing with a dizzying range of acute threats that this country’s president-elect poses—for their students, for themselves, for the public education system, for the entire world. In a disaster that’s shocked us down into childlike feelings of rage and fear and impotence, authority is difficult to perform. “These kids hear things like ‘they’re gonna build a wall’ and ‘they’re gonna kick out all the immigrants’ and ‘Muslims are gonna be banned,’” one teacher told Jezebel. “How do I tell a 7-year-old that’s not true … [Read more...] about ‘What Do I Say?’: Stories From the Classroom After Election Day
Windows 8 might be the most polarizing product that Microsoft has ever introduced. In fact, it might be one of the most polarizing tech products to ever see the light of day. There’s no question that Windows 8 has a large number of outright haters. It’s even inspired comparisons with the much-loathed Windows Vista. But it’s hard to tell whether that outpouring of anger is simply the echo chamber amplifying a vocal minority or whether it truly represents a widespread negative opinion. So instead of guessing, I went looking for data. And I found it in a familiar place: the product pages of Amazon.com, where thousands of Windows upgraders in the past six years have left ratings (on the familiar scale of 1 to 5 stars) and detailed feedback about their purchase. I went through more than 3000 ratings for upgrade versions of the three most recent versions of Windows and tallied those ratings to measure the love/hate rating for each one. (For details on methodology, see … [Read more...] about Just how much do people hate Windows 8?
Now that Windows Blue looks like it's leaked, we know one thing — the Start button isn't coming back. Were you surprised that it's staying away? I guess I was a little bit — or rather I was hoping that the Softies might have had a, um, softening on the position of the Start button. Read: Start8 and ModernMix — Windows 8's last, best hope for normality on the desktop . I am, to be honest, a bit fed up with talking about Start button and I'm sure you are too. But for me, it's taken a meaning greater than just something to do with the user interface. It's become symbolic of a problem that Microsoft doesn't seem to understand — enterprises and consumers experience software procurement in very different ways. And that's a problem... Ribbon Imagine it's 2007 and you're the CTO of a company with 1,000 users. A member of your staff has presented you with a business case to move to Office 2007. You know the toolbar is going away and being … [Read more...] about Windows 8 moved the cheese, Windows Blue doesn’t put it back
