Post-Thanksgiving, all hell has broken loose. Here’s exactly what you need to know.
I ride this train all the time. I’ve been asleep on this route going to that exact spot literally hundreds of times. Scary, my condolences go out to anyone affected by this tragedy. (via The New York Times)
I’ve been saying this for years, but probably because I’m not a woman and have seen only 10ish episodes, no one has listened. Well here it is, the seven (I’m sure there are more) most egregious ways the series has lied to women for two decades.

Less jump shot and more facial, NBA players, the most visible of all athletes, are stepping up their grooming game along with their #menswear game. It’s not surprising, they’re the biggest stars we have in American sports and they’ve got to smile for the camera. I’m sure the European footballers were way ahead of them on this anyway.

A handy guide to purchasing artistic things. They’re not free. That’s not to say they can’t be free, but they’re not always free, and the budget can’t always be zero.

In more sad news, the star of the 6-movie (he was filming a 7th) franchise “Fast & Furious’ died last night in a car crash. He was attending an event for his charity Reach Out WorldWide when the car he was in hit a light pole and burst into flames. He was the passenger. He was 40 years old. (via CNN)
