    Not to be confused with Oh Henry!

Thanks, wiki.

Fuck the poh-lice.

Seriously though, Hubski doesn't really have active moderation, it's more of a "delete spammers" sort of moderation. mk could correct me if I'm wrong on that. Worst case is that somebody at The Economist files a DMCA takedown notice or something with hubski and then my post gets deleted. Though I guess technically The Economist could come after me personally if they could figure out who I was, and it was worth the trouble (I'm betting they can't and it's not).

Grr..... I mean, I know how tempting it had to have been to make a pun, but that was really uninspired.

"You have the watches, but we have the time."

If this is an excuse to use more cheese and butter in my cooking, I'll take it. Though I assume that "carbohydrate" is a needlessly general term here. Sugars and starches are probably more at fault here than complex carbs like oats, beans, and veggies. And the fat vs carbs contest ignores the fact that you'd be better off eating more protein anyway. Just not too much, I guess.

Though I currently take the approach that if if I'm going to hurt myself with sugar once a week or so, it might as well be carrot cake or brownies or w/e. White bread, soda, potato chips etc. aren't worth it:

I don't really think this was a scandal. Like, hey, maybe don't write an article criticizing a company you work closely with, not because they might cut your funding or terminate any contracts you have with them, but because it looks way worse when you do it than one somebody else does it.

The killer here is that the people who responded to "Keith Mann" differently than they would to Gazin and Dwyer might not even be overtly sexist, or even aware that they have sexist tendencies. They probably aren't even bad people. Some of them are maybe even women who have faced overt sexism or sexual harassment themselves.

Psychology is weird, dude. And VC stands for Venomous Cobra.
