Jill Harness's Comments

Fair point. I do particularly like the tea suggestion as the link has reasons why it is better than alternatives for cleaning the floor. Also, things like ketchup seem good because it's cheap and traditional brass cleaners do cost more.

That being said, I do think peanut butter seems like more of an emergency/nothing else works type of solution because it's not as cheap as many alternatives.

Actually, correcting colloquially accepted words and expressions in an informal environment is not only the definition of being a grammar nazi (which, BTW, the capitalization of Nazi in this phrase is widely debated since it is not actually a reference to real Nazis or the Nazi party), but also just wrong. Language is always evolving and many common and proper words and phrases we use today were considered wrong 100 years ago. Snuck is actually in the Oxford English Dictionary and used more commonly than sneaked in Canada, meaning there it's actually the preferred form. Here in America it's almost as common as sneaked, meaning either is acceptable.

Regardless, you can act as though your comment was to somehow benefit the writer all you want, but it was not productive (nor was your catty follow-up response). In the end, the entire point was trying to prove your own intelligence which you really don't need to do here. Corrections for the sake of proving one's intelligence aren't beneficial to anyone but the one making the comment and almost universally unappreciated by everyone except that person.

In that case, yes, we've always linked to articles from other sites that we find fascinating. On the other hand, we actually have more original content now than we have ever hand before

I don't know why you're saying this is click bait. I promised facts behind urban legends and delivered a link directly to them. No exaggeration, no misrepresentation, nothing that constitutes click bait. Can you tell me what you mean by that?

I agree, I'd like to see more thick women in the muscular sense simply because that is realistic for the characters they are portraying. It seems silly to have a 100 pound girl with noodle thin arms to be a military commando or adventurer.

I agree, practically none of the girls on the list are fat and they all do look like very realistic women's body shapes. Pong Sirioput seems to think that by "eating right" (which is hard to do considering every nutrition specialist in the world seems to give conflicting advice) and exercising you can be a perfect 36-24-36, but news flash -not all women are built the same and some women stay thin despite having horrible diets and some women look thick and muscular even when they're in peak shape.

She was famous and a little chastised, but I think the public shaming on the internet was much worse than she would have received via traditional mediums that may have put more responsibility on the Clintons.

I think the majority of these people asked for it in some way or another, they may not have deserved having their lives ruined, but letting your dog poop on the subway and refusing to clean up, making crazy racist remarks on Twitter -most of them are far from innocent.

I agree that it might send conflicting messages to include name and images of the people mentioned, but they were all such public stories that are so widely spread online I don't think it makes any difference to put the names in and it does add journalistic benefit since that information is so readily available.

These are a lot wider than the average sushi roll and while I used a picture of the most sushi-ish one, there are some that look way more like burritos thanks to the fillings.
