I'm a 27 year old eternal student. I never want to stop learning. I'm interested in physics, math, philosophy, psychology, education, and literature. I'm optimistic about the world and the future.

    The communal version of Jack is grateful for the nice meal and happy that his wife is talking to her sister, which he knows she enjoys. He feels lucky to have a great family, and he cheerfully rolls up his sleeves and washes the dishes, whistling a happy tune.

    I suspect no husband in the world would really behave like the communal version of Jack, but never mind.

OK Boomer.

    A communal approach may sound friendlier, more like romance and less like negotiation. But negotiation is an important part of every long-term partnership. And if you choose to focus instead on the greater good and making your partner happy, you could be holding back your own career in the process.

This article is modern art. I read it as feminist in a way it's not trying to be, by showing how the gender pay gap creates a deep-seated inferiority complex, which ultimately manifests itself in poorer relationship health. It's also a great contrast between boomer feminism (women need to "defeat" men) and millennial feminism (everyone need to defeat the patriarchy).

This article is a great example of how when an author hates someone enough, they can't manage to put together a coherent sentence about why, and start hating everything that person does even if the thing is neutral or even cool.

Also for the record fuck Jeff Bezos and fuck Amazon, but I think his stupid clock is actually pretty cool.
