    FWIW ... I just 'unfollowed' Nate Silver on Twitter. His #FiveThirtyEight had some good content at one juncture, but for a math whiz, too many of his prognostications are off, plus his lefty politics blled through. He clearly skews his numbers to his worldview, no matter wtf he says.

    Very true. Jenkins was an exceptional writer, and a genuinely funny person, and so perceptive. He always knew just how to write about something not just what to write about.

    This is on SI this morning...

    Date: October 17, 1966

    Stoop-shouldered and sinisterly handsome, he slouches against the wall of the saloon, a filter cigarette in his teeth, collar open, perfectly happy and self-assured, gazing through the uneven darkness to sort out the winners from the losers. As the girls come by wearing their miniskirts, net stockings, big false eyelashes, long pressed hair and soulless expressions, he grins approvingly and says, "Hey, hold it, man—foxes." It is Joe Willie Namath at play. Relaxing. Nighttiming. The boss mover studying the defensive tendencies of New York's off-duty secretaries, stewardesses, dancers, nurses, bunnies, actresses, shopgirls—all of the people who make life stimulating for a bachelor who can throw one of the best passes in pro football. He poses a question for us all: Would you rather be young, single, rich, famous, talented, energetic and happy—or President?

    ^^^^ incidentally, by today's standards, that whole entry is toxic masculinity, hate speech, rape culture, and everything else evil in the world.

    Brawl over crab legs at buffet restaurant caught on video
    by Lauren Holter | Yahoo Lifestyle — 8 March 2019



    A brawl broke out in a Chinese restaurant in Queens, N.Y., last month, and a video of the altercation shows multiple people shoving and hitting one another when the buffet’s coveted crab legs came out. One of the people involved told the New York Post that things got heated when another woman pushed her 10-year-old son with her hip.

    “I was like, ‘Can you please do me a favor? I would appreciate it if you kept your hands off my child.’ And the mother comes over and she was like ‘You already had the first two batches,’” Christine, 39, told the Post.

    Donna Brown was eating at the restaurant at the time and caught the brawl on video.

    “Craziness,” Brown says in a Facebook live video. “They throwing glass around. This is getting real now.”

    Christine told the Post that she left the restaurant with a bleeding neck, bruises all over her body, and a bald spot where someone ripped out her hair.

    No arrests were made, but 10 people are wanted by the police for starting the fight, according to Fox News. Police were apparently unable to confirm that the fight broke out over crab legs.

    The restaurant’s manager, Budi Chan, told the Post that this wouldn’t be the first time the buffet’s crab legs caused a scuffle, though.

    “Mostly the customers argue with the crab legs because when the crab legs come out people just rush and take them,” Chan said. “If we have a few guests when they come out, after maybe one or two minutes [the crab legs are] gone.”

    A similar brawl actually broke out in Alabama last month when customers were waiting for crab legs at a buffet restaurant. Police said diners were using service tongs like fencing swords and a woman was beating a man. Two people were ultimately charged with assault and disorderly conduct.

    so true devil
    i mean, there was shit during our youth/teens/young adulthood
    manson, bonin, et al
    but now it seems everyone has lost their fucken minds
    and -- in this case -- never mind doing something (like, i don't know... call the police), just make sure you pull out your phone so you can record it
    priorities
    technology and social media have set society's collective intelligence level (particularly common sense) back decades
    brawling over crab legs?
    what, was it the last batch?
    you want to throw down over it, fine
    but hip-checking a 10 y/o is never acceptable
    amazing
