The weekend commences. Let the wild swearing begin!
“Fuck the Internet”: Harper’s Magazine, the oldest general-interest magazine in America (since 1850), keeps almost all of its content behind a paywall. (The publisher, John R. MacArthur, defended the policy in a 2014 interview.) If you’d like to support the cause, or just indulge in a little épater le bourgeois, you can do so with a no-uncertain-terms coffee mug.
Dot-wang: Standard top-level domains a little too standard? French web registrar Gandi–whose tagline is “No Bullshit”–is accepting reservations for the first .wang domains. Wang, Gandi informs us, is “a transliteration of ‘web’ in Chinese”; Urban Dictionary tells an alternate story. And yes, it’s a damn shame that Wang Laboratories didn’t survive long enough to register Wang.wang.
Adobe’s B.S.: “THIS IS BULL SHEET” reads the headline on Adobe’s full-page ad in the business section of the New York Times on Tuesday, April 9. Read all about it!
“Is my boyfriend bad news?” Fuck, yeah. “Tell this cocksucker to get gone for good, tell him to fuck himself permanently and forever, and go forward and seek men cut from a far finer fucking cloth.”
All that jizz:
