The Point Magazine

http://www.thepointmag.com/archive/love-in-the-age-of-the-pickup-artist/ I once worked within earshot of a dweeby jerk who was taking classes in The Game, that pick-up artist craze of a few years ago.

http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/sex/the-best-cities-for-singles-according-to-hard-data-474498/ Singles map of the US, broken down by gender (of the singles, not the states). My first instinct was to want to move to California. My second instinct was to remember that there’s probably a reason they’re all single.

http://www.girldateslondon.com/ A Stumble pinched from Sus07‘s page – likely not the last, either. The conceit (what an apt word) of this blog is to follow the romantic misadventures of a boozed-up, airheaded London party-girl as she dates her way through the city. Clearly, this is enough information for 99% of StumbleUpon’s straight male population to […]

Anteros – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anteros Much to the chagrin of my classicist friends – and I have quite a few – I never delved into the world of Greek or Roman mythology.

Justices Set Limits on Public Employees’ Speech Rights – New York Times

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/05/30/washington/30cnd-scotus.html Certain well-known “Activist Judges” prove they will do what they can to bury whistleblowers and thus protect government corruption and scandal from ever being revealed.

http://headrush.typepad.com/creating_passionate_users/2006/01/death_by_riskav.html This is a hugely important article, and was eerily well-timed to appear in my life this week. Not only does it touch on the rant I posted earlier (see second paragraph of quote), it also comes to me when I’m contemplating taking the risk of moving into a new job. I’ve had a few […]

Savage Love by Dan Savage – Seattle Columns – Savage Love – Dan Savage – The Stranger, Seattles Only Newspaper

http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/SavageLove?oid=1515 As referenced in that last stumble; my favourite Dan Savage column EVER, specifically for that last sentence: “If these girls wanna get their hands on good, cheap, reliable vibrators, I recommend they drive right past Wal-Mart and head to the nearest Toys “R” Us. There they will find numerous vibrating plush toys–the most famous […]
