Pharma vs. Karma, Bro

So this is the second hot-topical post I'll post.

Usually, I believe it is not healthy to rejoice in the disgrace of others, but I admit this development pleases me deeply. When you operate on that level of avarice and greed, a much bigger shark in the sea will eventually take a beefy bite out of your ass. This shark was the FBI, and guess who the little fishies were that told on you. Social media. Someone got pissed off, rightfully so, and dug deep. So here's the message to future Pharma Bros: Flaunting your Patrick Bateman-like expertise at getting rich will not help you in the digital era, scumbag. Does everyone know that your lawyer was ALSO arrested under these charges? 

Fuck you very much.

Bruce Calling Caitlyn (This may be the only topically relevant post I post…)

I missed the Diane Sawyer interview but watched the E! special in which Bruce respectfully (earnestly and affectionately) disclosed to his wife that he was going to transform his entire being into someone else, regardless of every external force in the known Universe. I was moved, and proud of him. Her.


After years of watching Pawn Stars, I learned that memorabilia only becomes significantly valuable after the death of a known celebrity. Living legend stuff just isn't as cool, somehow. 

So how does this work? Bruce Jenner no longer exists. A new star was born to the world, ostensibly overnight, at age 65. Even if this eventuality is a flash in the big oily media pan for now, it is to me far more historical than a photo of Bruce running in the 1976 decathlonbecause Caitlyn's coming out may make life easier for a great number of people who are inclined to follow suit.

For whatever reason, I’ve had this mostly empty box of Wheaties on my desk for a few years. The sell-by date on the box top reads 22FEB2013.
 
Box goes to top bidder. As a bonus there's still a few delectable Wheaties flakes left inside.

This Is Not A Photo Of Me


I have no idea who it is, but I am so deeply amused by the expression on his face that I want to share it with everyone. It’s a face that says, “C’mon, seriously now. Sure it is, man. You go on thinking that.”
I love irony, and I have never seen a more ironic smirk. So I suppose that means I love this dude in the moment in which this photo was snapped.

Well done, stranger. I want to buy you a pile of kittens and put them in front of you, and then take another photo. If it’s equally ironic looking—all the better.

Thank you. Please don’t sue me.
