She commented how she really likes As Seen On TV hair products such as the topsy tail hairstyling kit and its better known cousin the bump-it. Obviously I then asked her if she owned a bump-it, she said no (but her sister does apparently), and then she asked me if I had one and I said no because they do not make bump-its for gingers.
In the interest of full disclosure I don’t think I would actually ever wear a bump-it, but I am still offended by the dearth of terrible hair products available for my people. Between this and prohibiting gingers at sperm banks (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44579757/ns/health-pregnancy/ if you have been living under a rock) we just cannot win…
Relationships, friendships—even ones that take place predominantly online—these are things which require a fathomless connection and understanding in order to expand beyond anything superficial, and to acquire those things one must first dig deep beyond the marrow and expose oneself. But in an overly self-aware culture where nothing is sacred and everything is ridiculed, the prospect of being willingly vulnerable is terrifying. There is a palpable risk here of being hurt, of having the fundamental you-ness be weighed and measured and found wanting, whether by complete strangers or people you could see yourself loving, and it becomes so much easier to, in a sense, not be a real person—to simply be a series of likes and dislikes and perfunctory information; a picture attached to a blog which says nothing, reveals nothing; to be a ghost in the machine of the world.
This may possibly be the best Thought ever posted. A long, but necessary read full of never-ending truthiness.

An exchange last night between Perry and Huntsman about climate science and the GOP being out of touch with reality.
Perry proves yet again that when you talk inside a teevee, the truth is not important. Science not settled my ass … so 98 out of 100 isn’t good enough, what would be?
HARRIS [to HUNTSMAN]: You yourself have said the party is in danger of becoming anti- science. Who on this stage is anti-science?
HUNTSMAN: Listen, when you make comments that fly in the face of what 98 out of 100 climate scientists have said, when you call into question the science of evolution, all I’m saying is that, in order for the Republican Party to win, we can’t run from science. We can’t run from mainstream conservative philosophy. We’ve got to win voters.
HARRIS [to PERRY]: Just recently in New Hampshire, you said that weekly and even daily scientists are coming forward to question the idea that human activity is behind climate change. Which scientists have you found most credible on this subject?
PERRY: Well, I do agree that there is — the science is — is not settled on this. The idea that we would put Americans’ economy at — at — at jeopardy based on scientific theory that’s not settled yet, to me, is just — is nonsense. I mean, it — I mean — and I tell somebody, I said, just because you have a group of scientists that have stood up and said here is the fact, Galileo got outvoted for a spell.
But the fact is, to put America’s economic future in jeopardy, asking us to cut back in areas that would have monstrous economic impact on this country is not good economics and I will suggest to you is not necessarily good science. Find out what the science truly is before you start putting the American economy in jeopardy.
HARRIS: Just to follow up quickly. Tell us how you’ve done that. Are there specific — specific scientists or specific theories that you’ve found especially compelling, as you…
PERRY: Let me tell you what I find compelling, is what we’ve done in the state of Texas, using our ability to regulate our clean air. [continued..]
TL;DR: Rick Perry is GOB?
truly was a TL;DR for me, but I will agree with Jane merely because GOB is my least favorite Bluth
