Most Popular Posts
I really didn’t want to make a ‘Best of’ page, but it was requested so often that I felt I had to just to shut people up. None of the following articles are personal favorites of mine (Mainly because I don’t like a single goddamn thing I’ve ever written), but they gained the most page views and created a ton of hype. To spice things up a little, I added a few comments to each piece and/or speculated on why I think they seem to be the fan favorites.
You Can Learn a Lot From a Rich Girl
The Mommybloggers like to steal the credit for my site becoming popular, but the truth is I didn’t start really getting traffic until I wrote this. This article (along with the follow up) made it to the main page of digg, reddit (#1 spot), delicious, and popurls all at once. It also put me on the alexa ‘Movers and Shakers’ list and got me over 110,000 unique visitors in a single day.

The wage slaves of the world particularly liked this one.
How To Fight
This one kind of bombed on digg, but did fairly well on reddit. It made it to #1 and stayed there for a couple of days. This article also brings in the most google searches. I guess there are a lot of dorks out there searching for boxing tips.

Idiocy is Gender Neutral
I’m not really sure why this article got so popular. It’s really not that well thought out.
American’s Aren’t Fat Because They Lack Willpower, They’re Fat Because They’re Broke
After I wrote this, a lot of people freaked out and starting screeching, “Then how come homeless people aren’t fat! They’re poor!” They obviously missed the point. There is a difference between being ‘broke’ and being ‘poor.’ Poor people never really had any money in the first place. Broke people had money once, but they just chose to blow it all on stupid shit as opposed to their health.

I fucked around with this story a bit. I switched around tenses and wrote in first person and threw in some symbolism…just to see if I could make it all work together. If you ask me, the end result came out pretty lackluster, but everyone else seemed intrigued. The sad part is, as far as stories about my Mother go, this one is probably on the tame side.

College Will Kill Your Entrepreneurial Spirit While Simultaneously Turning You Into a Worker Bee
Once upon a time, a high school diploma was a signifier of a truly intelligent person who was capable of ‘going places.’ Then, everyone started earning high school diplomas effectively rendering them worthless.

You’ve got finals to study for.
