“When it comes to death, we know that laughter and tears are pretty much the same thing.”
― Sherman Alexie, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole.
These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game.
Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.
People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too long to play, is too difficult to learn and has too many tiresome rules.
That last sentence is perfect.
Still not sure when they’re going to officially open, but damn I love the kitchens in the new Ponce City Market apartments. (Though many of the rent prices seem a tad steep for a place with no pool. And oddly, “walking distance to Murder Kroger” doesn’t show up in the amenities list.)
The prices seem a tad steep for…everything?
Regardless of the nice appliances, who in the hell are these people who could/would pay $1350 for a 575 sq/ft studio in Atlanta?

Margaret Peterson Haddix’s Shadow Children series is so underrated. (I haven’t reread them and can’t speak for how they read as an adult, but I loved them in middle school and the fit the dystopian theme that I’m still pretty thrilled has gotten as popular as it has.) And as little as I agree with Ayn Rand’s philosophies, Anthem is very The Giver-esque.
I want to do a dude version of this based on what I just experienced looking at tinder (my roommate is a terrible influence).
Bros are all about the fish pics, RHCP lyrics, and Roll Tide.
…my video would probably be way too region-specific.
A YouTube user fixed the How I Met Your Mother series finale. While it’s obviously a little bit saccharine, it’s still that kind of sappy that totally jives with everything HIMYM viewers should have come to know and love.
I’m sure any remaining followers are sick of me talking about it, so this is the last HIMYM post I’m going to make for a good long while. But I’m going to close by saying that I am completely baffled by the collective misremembering of some details of the show in service of others. The show always leaned against the sappy as much as it embraced it. They did the same thing in the finale and people went apeshit. Internet, you are weird fucking bunch.
Also, this fan ending is so fucking boring, I can’t even.
I’m pretty ambivalent about the finale, since I’ve been ambivalent (at best) about the show for years, but I’m inclined to agree with this.
