It's amazing how every time the Left loses an election it's the result of a broken system and that the results have to immediately be "fixed".

Sexual harassment: Ecuador president says women tend to accuse ugly people | Ecuador | The Guardian

Except that he's absolutely right. Behavior that is considered harassment from an unattractive person is considered perfectly acceptable when it comes from someone attractive.

Tech companies’ entire business model depends on our data. We have the right to some measure of control

"What if, as we navigated around the web, typing into the privately owned search boxes of Amazon and Google, we could opt out of being monitored? Or opt in, and be paid on the spot for the data our search provided?"

You can opt-out. If you don't want your data collected, don't use the service. You are getting paid for your data, free use of the service is your payment.

From toxic wastewater to greenhouse gas emissions, the boom in vinyl has dangerous effects – but streaming isn’t as clean an alternative as it looks

"The background noise was not what I was used to, and there was even sometimes an intermittent ringing – as if the record itself had tinnitus. The bend and the flex were unusual. The edges were boxy. But if this is the sound and the feel of something that is made from a material less damaging than PVC, then these characteristics are not blemishes but beauties."

How mentally retarded do you have to be to put something like that in writing? The entire point of an LP is audio fidelity. If a green alternative cannot produce the same audio fidelity, than what is the fucking point of even having your music in a physical medium?

Furthermore, how fucking oblivious does one have to be to think physical media and digital streaming are the only options available for storing and playing music? Save digital files locally and you eliminate every single goddamn issue associated with both formats!

Jesus Christ, the author went to a great deal of effort simply to demonstrate his own stupidity.

The NBA great exists at the summit of the American sports pyramid, in the rare mononymic air of Tiger, Serena and LeBron

What a surprise that The Guardian would put four black athletes at the top of the American sports pyramid. Furthermore, the omission of Brady is a glaring flaw in their analysis.

Neither Kobe nor LeBron ever exceeded the accomplishments of Michael Jordan, who should take the place of both. Furthermore, the NBA doesn't even have half the appeal of the NFL when it comes to popularity in the US sport market. While Tiger and Serena may have achieved dominance in their respective sports, both sports are even less popular than the NBA.

Brady has accomplished more than any other player in the history of the most popular sport in the United States. Omitting him from the top of the American sports pantheon invalidates the entire premise of the article.
