  1. Everyone has a 100% risk of death, whether they drink or not.

    I know what they mean but this sort of phrasing of study results really makes my inner pedant gnash her teeth.

  2. Trying LinkedUp. Practically all of my single friends are on Tinder but I had been very hesitant. I’ll give LinkedUp a shot and if I like that style of “dating” maybe expand to Tinder.

  3. Thank you for the article in the New York Post about breadwinning wives, I enjoyed reading it. However, I made the mistake to read the comments below the article, too, and the stupidity (or is it jealousy? I can’t tell) displayed there is striking.

  4. Does Sally from Already Pretty have any actual fashion credentials? That post is alright, but the outfits she actually wears often have fit issues.
