A rousing, almost philosophical debate broke out in a recent email thread forwarded to Jezebel from the dads section of the Park Slope [Brooklyn] Parents listserv, when one father posed a significant ethical dilemma to the other dads: Is it okay to see Pearl Jam for the 19th time just four weeks out from when your…
I have a bit of a shameful fast food habit which, not only keeps me grounded and humble, but keeps my packet drawer stocked with only the finest single-serve condiments.

This Masterbuilt electric smoker makes cooking jerky, brisket, or (insert meat of your choice) as easy as dropping in some wood chips and hitting a few buttons to set your temperature. And at just $114, you’ll have a lot of money left over to buy meats.
Welcome to the Deadspin 25, a college football poll that strives to be more democratic and less useless than every other preseason poll.
