— me, sometimes
Where I work they send out an email asking people to stop using the old logo on things. So I email and ask if I can have a hi-res version of the new logo. And the file he sends me is 50 kb.
Shirt collars have gotten really wide. I looked it up, because I don’t know about such things, and that’s called a wide spread collar. You should have safe search on when you google “wide spread.” Especially if you don’t like Widespread Panic.
The internet says “You can wear whatever type of collar you want, but how you tie your tie must match it, lest you look like an unprofessional fool.”

I gave this flea market find (a late-30s-era driving safety pamphlet) to a friend as a “gag gift” when she hit the big 4-0. She ripped it up in my face and punched me in my bathing suit area. :(
You guys guess how long this has been in my drafts.
In 2012, the homicide rate in the United States fell to its lowest point since 1963. For every 100,000 residents in the country, there were 4.7 victims of murder or non-negligent manslaughter. This is a remarkable decline of 54% since the homicide rate peaked in 1980 at 10.2.
Using data compiled from FBI Uniform Crime Reports, the GIF above shows the decline in the homicide rate in each state between 1965 and 2012. Every state in the country has seen a decrease in its rate of murder and non-negligent manslaughter committed within its borders. One of the largest decreases occurred in the state of Louisiana. After peaking in 1993, the homicide rate has fallen 47% since then. Yet the Pelican State still has the highest homicide rates in the country at 10.8 per 100,000 Louisianans — more than twice the national rate of 4.7.
Way to go, Louisiana
