It's great. I watched it by myself, and I was embarrassed by how many I burst out laughing. The way he sets up a joke, then takes it in a completely different direction. You know it's coming, but you never when or what direction. He is such a great writer. Like Stephen Wright, but darker and constantly crossing the line.

Ha. I worked on the school newspaper with Adam. He was a freshman when I was a senior. I see him post GenX memes and stuff on Twitter from time to time and can't think we're basically the same age, but we really are.

This trend of putting the Snapchat baby filter on famous adults is gold.

If you follow the Rex Chapman "Block or Charge" on twitter, do NOT watch the lastest with a weightlifter. I almost vomited. Makes Tim Krumrie look like a bruise.

Deadspin had a headline that in itself made me feel ill.

And no way was I clicking it.

I don’t discuss it much on here because it’s not my story to discuss but my college roommate signed up for the Army after running out of college money hoping to get GI Bill money but was sent to Iraq after 9/11 and he hasn’t been the same since. He’s told me some of the stuff he saw and I know what he’s told me probably only scratches the surface.

Sometimes when we’re out drinking he’ll just start crying at random times. I know he must have pretty serious PTSD but the VA just isn’t able to get these guys the care they need and when they can they’re handcuffed by not being able to use multiple treatment options.

That sucks, man. That really fucking sucks. I truly feel for him and all others going through shit.

Every time I read a story like that I feel like I'm lucky. I just haven't experienced trauma on that level. My stress comes from people and their attitudes which is nothing compared to the rest of everything else.

Same. It just makes me tear up. And then I get infuriated when shithead Pence is all "you're going to see combat" during West Point graduation.

But to the Army's credit they left up the tweet and followed up with empathy instead of going "oh shit" and deleting it.

That is so fantastic!

I was the stay at home dad for my kids, this clip brought dust into the room. Then my 22 year old came upstairs to pick up his weed delivery and the mood was gone.

If that is all true, it is one of the greatest stories ever told.

If it's fiction, (or if parts of it are fiction), it is still fantastic.

I just got a follow on Twitter from somebody who A) appears to be an employee of the NSA, and B) appears to be a Trump supporter.

Should I be concerned?
