is this supposed to be sarcastic? If not it makes no fucking sense.

The mainstream media all but ignores science coverage. And when it does present scence it typically uses reporters who are ignornt on the subject matter and/or it misrepresents the actual science. Then you have people like Jenny McCarthy and networks like Fox that are blatently hostile to science.

But somehow the fact that science is misrepresented is the fault of Facebook?



But somehow its

"You're a hipster if you don't want to watch television but if you watch television then you are a hipster," said JB, playing with his dreadlock.
"What the fuck kind of sense does that make," said Trotssarian. "I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE."

Speaking of which I heard "Cherub Rock" on the radio today. Anyway, yeah the term's been beaten to death to the point that it's lost its meaning and become absurd.

Still, how do you live without cable? It's one of those things that I think I'd be better without, but never dared cross that line.

i worked for the cable company for 5 years and my four free cable boxes sat unused the closet most of the time i had them. i hooked them up to watch the olympics, world cup and the NBA finals because the magic were doing well.

other times i've just been able to afford it and couldn't justify the expense to myself.

it was nice watching the world cup because soccer games are two 45-minute blocks of no commercial interruption, which is probably the primary reason i avoid tv. the standard ad to content ratio on non-premium channels is 8:22 which is more than 25%. it's just so obnoxious to watch.

i tried watching season 5b of breaking bad live and the commercials were unbearable. they really take you out of the moment. we interrupt this dramatic mexican standoff to let you know about the existence of soap/auto insurance/tampons/the breaking bad ipad app and god, it must be so annoying to be a creator of fiction and have to put ads right in the middle of your work.

As someone who grew up not having a wonder and awe about science or even learning basic facts about evolution etc, I do gravitate towards "laymen's science" and some of the things I read really blow my mind. I love when that happens.

i've found it remarkably easy to live without cable but still pretty frustrating that i have to leave my house and go to some bar to watch basketball

i mean i don't have any friends that have cable either, or really, friends. because i'm terrible and i should die.
