The Post Office Wants To Mail You Your Groceries

I have my groceries delivered by Fresh Direct. I only find myself in a "grocery store" when my wife and I have done a poor job anticipating our foodstuff needs. Fresh Direct literally trumps my "brand loyalty"; if Fresh Direct doesn't stock it, I don't eat it, even if the brand I prefer is sitting in a Shop & Stop a… » 10/24/14 4:10pm Friday 4:10pm

A Travel Ban Is The Ebola Of Stupid Ideas

Let's start here: currently, there are no direct flights from the United States to Liberia, Sierra Leone, or Guinea. Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea are the three West African nations where the Ebola outbreak has hit hardest. The American Congress banning flights to these West African nations is stupid because NO… » 10/21/14 4:47pm Tuesday 4:47pm

Like This Post If You Are The Baby-Daddy​

Okay, you're having a baby but you've lost touch with the father. You decide that you want to give the baby up for adoption. But in order to do that, you need to notify the father so he can have an opinion. Maybe he's going to go all Billy Jean on you, maybe he really wants to be a part of the child's life. Maybe you… » 10/20/14 2:43pm Monday 2:43pm

Everything Wrong With Your School's Enhanced Sexual Harassment Policy​

Harvard University, among many others, was recently called out by the Department of Education for having knuckle-dragging responses to allegations of sexual harassment on campus. Many of the schools are embarrassed, and the ones that aren't should be. Women shouldn't need to pack a Taser and a personal body camera… » 10/16/14 3:32pm 10/16/14 3:32pm

Can You Shoot Down Drones?

I know I sound like I'm wearing a tinfoil hat when I talk about emerging drone law, BUT THEY ARE COMING FOR US. Robots that fly and spy on us are being put in the hands of private citizens. Drone regulations are being written by lobbyists for drone manufacturers and other companies. You're going to wake up one day,… » 10/03/14 12:24pm 10/03/14 12:24pm

Did You Know New York City Is Like The Town In Footloose? ​

In many bars in New York City, dancing is illegal. Not super illegal. Like, if you bust a move at your local dive, you probably won't be arrested. John Lithgow won't bust in and stop you from dating his daughter. But the owner of the bar could get fined for encouraging you to dance without a cabaret license. » 9/30/14 5:08pm 9/30/14 5:08pm

People Like Lawyers Even Less Than You Think​

Okay, nobody likes lawyers. Lawyers know that. They don't care. They have neither the time nor the inclination to explain themselves to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of justice which they provide, and then questions the manner in which they provide it. » 9/24/14 3:55pm 9/24/14 3:55pm

Minor League Players Sue Over Low Pay​

NFL cheerleaders have been marginally successful suing the league for more money. Well, I'm using the term "marginally" very generously: the $1.25 million settlement between the Oakland Raiders and their cheer team is tantamount to the team giving the cheerleaders a slap on the butt and shouting "good effort." » 9/19/14 2:35pm 9/19/14 2:35pm

When Is An All-White Jury Presumptively Racist?​

When being judged by a jury of your peers, is it necessary that some of those peers be members of your ethnic or racial group? Hold on, white people, I'm not asking you. You might talk tough on the internet, but if you were the defendant in a trial and you walked in and saw the entire Wu-Tang Clan sitting in the jury… » 9/16/14 3:28pm 9/16/14 3:28pm
