¡SCIENCE! always seems to play catch-up to your grandparents’ wisdom. The COTW winner is hosswire (and his grandparents), adding a widely-shared observation to one of the many CH posts referencing social science studies that buttress Realtalk and taunt leftoids who consider science their BFF:
Science just keeps confirming the rule of thumb I now use to make sense of the world: Everything my grandparents told me is true. Everything my college professors told me is a lie.
The problem with academia is the complete lack of ideological diversity (coincidentally at a time when vibrancy diversity is all the rage.)
Sentient is COTW runner-up.
“there are so many times in life when we miss out because we think the timing is wrong”
So true. It saddens me to see all these earnest young guys, grinding through HS, then grinding through college, then grinding through corporate life. Alive but never living…
You have NO IDEA what is going to happen, so don’t get caught up with the plans and projections…
I entered college at 17, transferred around quite a bit, ultimately dropped out a few credits shy of a bachelor’s degree, bored. I had met my personal 10 by then, and then moved to live with her. Married at 23. Kid at 24. Started my first company at 25 when I had no idea what do do with my life… 7 figure net worth at 30… sold company at 35… started new company… increasing net worth. 5 kids on and married 25 years…
You never ever know what is going to happen except this – IF YOU DO NOTHING, THEN NOTHING WILL EVER HAPPEN.
Try, fail, try again and for god’s sake LIVE your life…

Reliably interesting commenter PA is second COTW runner-up.
Fucking a nurse or a doctor would become weird once you realize that her carnal knowledge of your man-parts is like no other woman’s because she’s cut and sliced sections of johnsons, yarbles, rectii, and the entire male pelvic basin in gross anatomy classes.
I’ve always felt that way about nurses, too, but wowjustwow do they like to fuck. Maybe it’s their better grasp of mortality?
The New Heresy, twatting on Twatter, wins the COTW consolation prize.
What does it mean to be white? To construct a civilization whose decline is marked by outgroup altruism and ingroup malice.
The best shivs get to the point.
