This A Map of Every State’s Favorite Band
… I’m pretty disappointed with TN.

Alabama’s favorite band is The Civil Wars. Roll tide. 

"I love The Civil Wars."
“Oh yeah? What’s your favorite song of theirs?”
“Huh?”

Every.Time.

  • Me: [steps up to Chipotle counter]
  • Me: A burrito, please.
  • Employee: White or brown rice?
  • Me: White, please.
  • Employee: [places tortilla in steamer, waits a moment, pulls out tortilla]
  • Employee: Did you say white or brown?

Sweet Dreams

I live in an old walkup building with steam heat.

Every night, the radiator in my bedroom makes a knocking sound that very much resembles someone standing in the corner of my room bouncing a tennis ball every 20 seconds.

Every night, I wake up terrified that some tennis-ball-bouncing psychopath is about to murder me.

It’s not often that a respected publication will go on the record saying that you can’t reliably make money in the stock market without inside information, which is what makes this chart even more awesome (and correct).

"What? Really?"

"Should I Go To Law School?"

I get this question a lot, in various forms.  I’ve sort of answered it before.

My answer: No. You shouldn’t.

Unless:

  • you’ve worked in a law office doing the sort of work you want to do when you graduate, and liked it; and
  • you can afford it, meaning pay for it up front or take out a manageable amount of debt; and
  • are going to a law school which will allow you to get a job doing the work that you have experienced and enjoyed.

If all three of those apply, then sure, go to law school. Your job is probably going to be all-consuming, it will be mostly paperwork, you won’t have any actual days off, and with the exception of very few types of law, you’ll have much less interpersonal interaction than you expect. But yeah, knock yourself out.

And in 5 years, after you’ve spent $180k on a degree and you wish you were doing something else, remember that a random dude on the internet told you not to go.
