good twitter bios runx

The bar is in the globe.

This is a factory, not a circus.

I weigh less than a slice of bread.

Someone is staring at you in Personal Growth.

open mic nite

Politics, celebrity gossip, business headlines, tech punditry, odd news, and user-generated content.

These are the chew toys that have made me sad and tired and cynical.

Each, in its own way, contributes to the imperative that we constantly expand our portfolio of shallow but strongly-held opinions about nearly everything. Then we're supposed to post something about it. Somewhere.

From businesses we've never heard of, to countries we've never visited, to infants who've had the random misfortune to be born into a family that's on TV -- it's all grist for obvious jokes and shortsighted commentary that, for at least a few minutes, helps both the maker and the consumer feel a little less bored, a little less vulnerable, and a little less disconnected. For a minute, anyway, it makes us feel more alive. Does me, anyway.
