Everyone hates Fresno

 

But who takes Fresno? Meeker goes on to point out, “Bakersfield is definitely SoCal and Modesto is definitely NorCal, and nobody wants to lay claim to Fresno, the apparent regional culture DMZ.

NorCal/SoCal Dividing Line Figured Out, But Who Gets Fresno?: SFist.

In other percentage news, I hate 100% of this group. To be fair, holy fuck, they are asking for it.

And one in eight thought a victim who dances in a provocative manner on a night out is also to blame for any consequences.

Okay, neat.  Gotta go shoot myself in the face now.  Girl power!!! (This is why we can’t have nice things, not get raped, etc).  Fucking. People.

You make me want to live in bed.  I’m disgusted and sad and angry.  That’s interesting though.  I vaguely bet the other 46-or-so% HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN RAPED. Because it happens all the time.  Which is horrifying.  But this attitude is somehow even worse to me at this second.  It’s turning my stomach.

Fuck you people.

Sidenote: it’s not like their methods were scientific, so I’m not going to pretend that really half of all women could think this, BUT STILL.

Love Don’t Pay My Bills: Earning (Persephone Magazine)

Last week, we talked about budgeting (oh, did we ever!), but this week, we’re going to rewind a step and look at one of the two major factors involved in budgeting: what you earn. Earning is a topic over which you may feel you can exert little control, but that’s not true. Even within most given fields, levels of education, location, and experiential tiers, there is room for negotiation on your salary. A number of things can influence it: let’s take a look.

AT&T blows (via TechCrunch)

My Old Friend, AT&T, Still Bringing The Scumbaggery After All These Years | TechCrunch.

That’s the day I finally cancelled my AT&T service after years of dropped calls, non-existant service, gross over-charges, and all around frustration. I even did it before I knew for sure that Verizon was getting the iPhone. I had had enough. That I got to cancel it by way of Google Voice, adding insult to injury, was just icing on the cake.  Looking back, it was one of the best decisions, technology-wise, I’ve made in the past few years. And today it’s looking even better.
