Sometimes you come across a blog post so fucktastic you want to distribute it to other geeky e-readers like a warm Xerox copy of a first grade worksheet. (PS: Remember those worksheets? I recently got my hands on some and need to stress to you how mindlessly, validatingly, "I've been lobotomized and I'm loving every minute of it" awesome they are. I'm being serious. What was once a colorful-pencil-with-a-nifty-craft-fair-eraser-on-the-top-that-you-know-you-chewed-on-at-least-once-because-EVERYBODY-did accented nightmare has become outright fun now that our brains are exposed so frequently to shitty work memos which do not have exciting cartoon barnyard animals at the bottom. Get a stack of grades 1-3 literature or math tests and keep them at home as party games or destressers. You won't regret it. "Fill in the blank_________." Really? That's all? AWESOME.)
ANYWAY, point is, my first JUST F-ING READ THIS is by Nick at Wade the Tides, a blogger who is also a heavily tattooed rocket scientist (no, I am not making that up. Yes, he is awesome. And he can play obscure Bigwig songs on guitar, which is unique for rocket scientists). Nick breaks down why he's "undateable", with charts, and it is brilliant.
