Why Politics

Why did I go into politics? I went into politics because that cute girl in highschool said I'd never amount to anything, so I became a politician in order to either flex my power and impress her, or at least maybe kill some grotty theatre cause she cared about.


Slap Me, Captain Obvious

Everything old is new again.  Today it's Gawker's Nick Denton saying that comments on the web are hopeless. And we've been here before.  The only real difference between the two articles is that Denton puts the signal:noise ratio at 1:5, where as the Fark guy put it at 1:99.

And again, I can't decide if the bigger irony is the comments on the CNN article... or the Slashdot article about the CNN article.
