sigdiamond2000: Mugato: sigdiamond2000: You know, between this and the Slate article yesterday by the allergic woman bragging about pestering a grieving mother at a wake about the peanut content of the food, I'm really starting to wonder whether these supposedly legitimate web sites/newspapers are purposely publishing stuff they know is trollish just for page hits.You don't think there really are people like this? I know there are. I've spotted them in the wild.I can't imagine more than 3% of the population not wanting to punch this guy in the face after reading this article. They have to realize that, right?They never realize it.I know people like this exist. I know some of these kinds of people. Whenever they leave the room, everyone talks about what assholes they are. Sometimes they don't even wait until they leave the room.As out of touch as the Northeastern elite may be, I find it very hard to believe that the NYT didn't realize that they were publishing a story that was going to generate almost nothing but hate for this f*ckstick.
Barfmaker: It's pronounced "doosh" but it's not spelled like that.
GiantRex: Pocket Ninja: His description of Olga makes me think his life trajectory is actually closer to something like this:1) Guy makes a lot of money, is happy, buys lots of crap he doesn't need.2) Guy meets girl who's very different from the normal, vapid, airheaded, money-grubbing girls he normally meets. She travels places he's never been, listens to bands he's never heard of, is shockingly open about how much she enjoys sex, and constantly talks about how she doesn't care about money.3) "Doesn't care about money" actually translates to "doesn't have money," but regardless of that fact she has learned that life can be experienced, gripped by the teeth, so to speak, by befriending people who do have it.4) Girl who doesn't care about/have money and guy who has money and wants to keep farking girl go on trip together to gritty but safe third world destination. He sees gritty things, like people bathing in rivers. Girl has a copy of "Lonely Planet" that they use to find authentic local restaurants filled with backpack-toting Americans.5) Guy begins to believe girl's message that money is unimportant, despite the fact that he is paying for everything. He begins to question his previous values. She encourages him, sometimes while out shopping.6) They return home. Guy announces plans to change his lifestyle, downsize, become less material.7) Girl dumps him.The rest is fallout. Anyway, it's just one theory.Don't let Hollywood see this, or we'll be seeing a trailer for the movie by the end of the year.

Smackledorfer: I have a boat.I think I will keep it, materialism be damned.Also some rods, multiple types of boots, a bicycle, a shotgun, some patio furniture, a grill, a firepit, and will be getting a kayak.Might even try windsurfing this summer.If only I had the money to experience those activities without owning stuff?
Pumpernickel bread: What I think really happened is this guy really liked the movie "Fight Club" and wanted to be Tyler Durden. His transformation and the release of that movie happened at about the same time.
