Careers, Marriage, and Douchebags August 23, 2006
Forbes.com recently posted a completely asinine commentary by a douchebag named Michael Noer about how it’s a bad idea to marry a career woman.
Noer’s point was this: according to social scientists, career women (women working more than 35 hours a week and making more than $30,000) suck at marriage. In his own words, “recent studies have found professional women are more likely to get divorced, more likely to cheat, less likely to have children, and, if they do have kids, they are more likely to be unhappy about it.” Noer’s genius viewpoint in its entirety is here. (Update: Forbes, sensing Noer’s douchebagginess, has reformatted the original article to read as a point-counterpoint. But really, they printed the thing as a stand-alone two days ago.)
Baggin’ Balls Bigtime August 10, 2006
Long gone are the days of chugging shoulder tapped Boone’s Farm Wine and huffing Glade while the DT (Designated Thinker to you) wheeled the golf cart around the clubhouse pool at 3:00 AM. These days we Rangers have all moved on to more mature and socailly acceptable habits of sharing joints and mohitos as we gather round the sushi boat on the lanai of our suburban split ranches. Although we aren’t parents yet, we always look forward to feilding the call from the fuzz at 2:00 AM “Mr. Funk, we need you to come pick up your daughter from the station house. We caught her upper decking Mrs. SoandSo’s master bathroom toilet.” Yes, very soon, we’ll be teaching the next generation of gonzos the meticulous technique required to perform the daring “”drydock” without getting caught.

When we Rangers are not replying to fictitious police inquires from ‘firstname.lastname@example.org,’ we are listening to music and riding. Most of the time we are doing both.
Looking back, we have all purchased singles of our favorite artist or bands and some of us even purchased a 45 or two. We are sure some of you still have that ‘Do Me!’ single by BBD just waiting to be played when Skids come back and you can sport that HyperColor shirt. Over time, we have progressed to listening past that one moneymaker on the album and gone on to hear the whole album all the way through. Having done that, the arere really not too many albums that we can listen all the way through from start to finish and really enjoy to whole collection of songs.
