    sometimes it turns out that they actually have shitty taste in literature and they might be making a show of poking around in the "literature and classics" section but will covertly leave with some awful chick-lit title.

    also they might get snippy with you if you refer to a homeless dude as "a hobo"

    A couple of my hip female friends are inordinately excited about an adult-oriented sequel to the Sweet Valley High series of books. I assume that's not unusual, since Diablo Cody is also writing a script for an adaptation of the Sweet Valley High series.

    But I'm like, whatever, because I'm Babysitters' Club 4 Lyfe.

    You'd have to go the other way. Get a roadster and raise it up. Then take it to the track.
    For the love of god, don't do this. Lowering a Jeep Cherokee makes it moderately silly and defeats it's intended use. Raising up a roadster is potentially dangerous.

    Can't be that much more dangerous than those guys who throw 6 inch lifts + huge tires on their jeep wranglers. Wranglers are already squirrelly enough on the highway as the stock model alone.

    watching someone who doesn't usually play games fool around with mirror's edge...or really any first person game is kind of amazing. it really hammers home how much we take being able to use controllers and whatnot for granted.

    A. Deer

    C. Giraffe
    D. Wolf
    E. Elk

    Well, let's see here. C is the only one that doesn't naturally live in North America. D is the only carnivore. B is the only domesticated one.

    So which property was more important to the test creator? I'm going to guess carnivore.

    Oh no I guessed wrong! It was actually B, for domestication.

    And how is this a test of IQ versus general knowledge? It's not. It's bullshit.

    Yeah, video games definitely have their own artistic language. I think that's primarily what separates the 'core' from the 'casual' market - not amount of time playing, or amount of money spent, but how steeped you (and the game) are in video game tropes.

    in my experience, they are unusually earnest artsy bohemian kids who are on a constant quixotic crusade for personal authenticity.

    if anything, they are the least sneeringly ironic clique out there. the extent of their irony is generally a kind of good-natured celebration of kitsch.
