Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself? 

Heart pain from just getting swept* by the Tribe.  * in 3 weeks the bottom of the 10th (down 4-2) will be finished.

Great video.  But dad, be ready to console this kid when the Tribe catches your Royals and keeps you out of the playoffs for the 30th straight season.

Flanders is so right.

Here’s the bottom line: We’re making progress, but the gender pay gap still exists at all income levels, and widens as people get older.
Highly-educated women with professional degrees tend to begin their careers at approximately the same salary level as their male counterparts, but as their careers progress, a gender gap opens up. By their late 30’s, men with professional degrees earn 50% more than their female counterparts.
So how do we fix that? Beginning with the first bill he signed into law, President Obama’s been fighting to help women receive the pay they deserve. But he can’t do it all by himself. Congress needs to act to help ensure equal pay for women.

That’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed our charts. I had a blast. —Betsey

The biggest reason for the gender wage gap is that there’s a statistically significant number of women who take breaks in their careers or reduce their working hours to raise children. When they come back to full time work, their career trajectory is years behind people (men and women) that didn’t take a hiatus or step back.

I’m so tired of award shows being on all the time

Or maybe it’s the get togethers that really bug me.

My mom parodied your songs for my lullabies

I sing TMBG to my little one every night.

Playlist: WHOA
Nonsense words like “whoa,” “la,” or “na” have always been one of my favorite features of songs. Instead of acting as filler, I think these words tend to act as harmony elements, recurring near choruses to add a little something extra; plus, they make songs way easier to sing along to. “Whoa” is kind of like the more melodic, less violent version of “Hey” that’s in so many recent songs. Paramore (of which Hayley Williams is the pictured lead singer) named a song “Whoa” so that they’d have a song that crowds could sing along with even if they’d never seen a Paramore show. Some of my very favorite bands (New Found Glory, Bayside, A Day to Remember - all featured on this list) use “whoa” fairly often, to the point that I joke that if a song has the word “whoa” in it, I’ll like it by default. It might not work for everyone, but this pop-influenced list is pretty solid.

I’ve heard my all time favorite song at a drug store.
