What O.J. riots? Is this a joke I'm not getting? Because I've seen other Gawker commenters refer to them, and they never happened. I mean, I understand that your comment is meant sarcastically, and if you'd referred to the Rodney King riots I would have understood, but there were no O.J. riots, so I'm confused. » 12/20/14 6:09pm Saturday 6:09pm

I would shout my love for Stephen Colbert from the highest mountaintop, whereas I would murmur my apathy toward Seth Meyer in an underground parking structure. Even I, however, would never claim that Colbert holds a patent on the idea of running satirical captions under or alongside the screen. It's a pretty… » 12/19/14 8:47pm Friday 8:47pm

I don't know about you, but on my phone, you can do all of this by pushing buttons — you hit the button on the lock screen for your camera (his was already set to video from the one he'd previously shot), record for a moment, hit a button to return to the lock screen, swipe to open that, if Facebook is already up (as… » 12/18/14 4:47pm Thursday 4:47pm

There's nothing well-intended about #AllLivesMatter. Don't buy that bullshit. It's the classic deliberate misunderstanding of something the user doesn't want to get. It's right up there with "When is White History Month?" » 12/17/14 11:01am Wednesday 11:01am

I did. Putting aside your deeply creepy belief that anyone who is celibate for a protracted period is likely to abuse children sexually, do you have any sort of cite for your claim that Catholic priests abuse children at a much higher rate than do clergy of other faiths? » 12/17/14 10:28am Wednesday 10:28am

That's the thing, I spotted that the moment I saw it, if you're from a place where the racism is ingrained, open, and shameless, you've seen this kind of idiot before. They think interacting with anyone who isn't exactly like they are should get them some kind of humanitarian award. I wasn't initially certain that… » 12/16/14 2:26pm 12/16/14 2:26pm

You should know that a year or two ago this commenter responded to me elsewhere thinking that I was the person who'd made this comment, and thanking me for how much I'd helped her child. I am a space shot, so while I couldn't remember what she was referring to, I figured it was just my spaciness, and didn't realize… » 12/16/14 1:24am 12/16/14 1:24am

I'm not surprised about the conservatives' ruling on this, but I'm really disappointed in RBG. Yes, this may have been, in fact, probably was, an honest mistake on this policeman's part in this particular case. But there's now nothing to stop police from making far less honest "mistakes" and getting away with it. The… » 12/15/14 4:36pm 12/15/14 4:36pm
