:disshame: What a tone deaf article. Not to mention the fact that it's super shady to hire your kid if you run a not for profit.
Yeah, you too can pay off your student loans early if someone give you a good paying job, a home, and a 2nd place to live while you rent out your home.

what reputable publication is this from?
That article is the logic equivalent of the stuff on this page: https://www.buzzfeed.com/awesomer/desig ... .lmdawD2Bj

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

She had her dog cloned not once, but twice! I saw that the cost was estimated at $70K. Wow...I really have no words...

I'm currently editing a business student's thesis about procurement and implementation of computer systems. I have no idea what the fuck is going on. I'm basically in a disengaged grammar robot mode. I also took a discounted rate cos the guy is on a tight budget. I am in hell.

I feel that there is a fascistic element, for example, in the Rolling Stones . . .

I've studied the phenomenon of neo-provincialism in self-isolating online communities but this place takes the fucking cake.

If? I'm 90% certain it's absolute bullshit. Pure social (pseudo-)science observations of case studies that fit or don't fit into models. I shit on my own work as having little social value, but I'm fucking Thoreau in comparison.

God, that hideous New Radicals song captures so well the sound of soulless, faux alternative corporate music. It possesses all the nominal characteristics of rock, but it's utterly artificial. Even the name of the band is mocking. I nominate it for most 90s song of the 90s.

And it so consistently comes up in these countdowns from the time. You can't escape it!

I hate that bit where he sings "Come around, we'll kick your ass in." He'd probably go running to his mum if you looked at him with a bit menace.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.
