Your letters: Paul: Bed naps or couch naps? As someone who possesses Ultimate Dad Napping powers, I can tell you that this is strictly a situational question. The couch/recliner nap is strictly a casual, even unintended thing. You get comfortable, the football game you’re watching turns dull, and suddenly you’re out. That happens, and it’s quite lovely. Advertisement Bed naps, on the other hand, are for planned naps. It’s for when you really mean business and NEED that nap in order to function. Like, if you’re sick, you gotta do a bed nap. Or if you were up late last night and know you have a big night out tonight and you REALLY gotta conserve energy, you do the bed nap. I know a lot of people who can’t do bed naps because they’ll just go lights out at 2 p.m. and wake up at 4 a.m., but I don’t have that problem. I take to the bed when I know I HAVE to sleep because I’ve got a RAGING PARTY to go rage at. And if I can’t … [Read more...] about Bed Naps Or Couch Naps: WHO YA GOT?!
Drew Magary's Thursday Afternoon NFL Dick Joke Jamboroo runs every Thursday during the NFL season. Email Drew here . So with Breast Cancer Awareness out of the way, the NFL shifted feel-good themes last week to honor Veterans Day with a "Salute to Service." They rolled out commemorative footballs and a special camo-pattern ribbon, and the announcers thanked the troops, and @NFL tweeted out large-scale tributes to military personnel like this one: Advertisement The league gives $300 to military charities for every point scored during 32 designated "Salute to Service" games in November (for a total donation thus far of $228,900). The NFL says it donated $800,000 in all last year. And that's all very nice. Like everyone else, I love the troops, I am grateful for the insane sacrifices they have made on behalf of the country, and I feel eternally inadequate for not doing MORE to support them and for not pitching into wartime efforts that are conducted, in theory, to my direct … [Read more...] about The NFL’s Salute To Service Is Horseshit
Every now and then some asshole guy (or occasionally asshole girl) gets rejected online by a romantic prospect, goes apeshit over text, and then goes viral after his victim posts the conversation online. It’s a good reminder that this shit is happening all the time, mostly to women, because some people never learned how to take rejection like an adult. It also happens to the editor of McSweeney’s Internet Tendency. Editor Chris Monks has to gently reject hundreds of submissions every week, and some writers react...poorly. In a recent Vulture article, Monks shares some of the worst responses. These cringey replies are a great read. They also make it very clear why you should always, always, be graceful about rejection. Here are four reasons, in increasing order of selfishness. Advertisement You’re talking to a person 99% of the time, even the most generic form-letter interaction is at some point read by a human being with feelings. This is all the reason you … [Read more...] about You’re Probably Handling Rejection Wrong
