  1. artists: such whores
    Sheesh, that article makes me glad none of my 4,000,000 partners has been an artist!

  5. So being a little insane is good for you, and global warming is bringing cold temperatures to Northern Europe.
    joy…
    good on the first, not so good on the second.

  7. On the other hand, the second may lead to the first, so that’s good for you.
    I wonder if the conclusions of the first apply in post-apocalyptic wasteland environments.
