I started playing Star Wars: the Old Republic at launch on December 20th, 2011. In the six years to follow, BioWare’s narrative-focused online RPG became a constant in my life, bringing me new friends, dear personal partners, and amazing adventures. I canceled my subscription on March 13th, 2017. It’s been a little less than two years since then. Last week, I returned to the game and found...View more »

Some related to illegal payoffs intended to silence two women alleging affairs with the then-candidate in 2016, while others entailed crimes like bank fraud and tax evasion.

So many people who said my ghetto Miata turbo would never run. Then I got it to run, and there were so many people who said it wouldn’t make it out of my driveway. Then I got it driving. Then so many people said it would blow up after five miles. I’ve driven it 300 miles and it’s fine. So sick of assholes on the internet, but I also love proving them wrong.

A squad of Team USA kids who are mostly less interesting than the American soccer boys who are currently injured—and also this guy who looks just like Michael Bradley oh God wait that’s actually somehow Michael Bradley—is getting wildly overmatched by a World Cup-caliber Colombian team in a Tampa friendly. Thirty-six...View more »
The United States continued its efforts to transform this garbage pile of a country into a literal garbage pile this weekend by teaming up with Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait to challenge language “welcoming” a United Nations report urging immediate global efforts to reduce the effects of climate change.
