Today In Tips: Facebook Asshattery & The Female Tiger Woods

Yesterday we introduced a new feature - stolen from our brother site - in which we roundup the most fascinating bits and pieces from our #tips page. Thanks to eagle-eyed readers, we have another great edition today.

  • Quick check: Are you an asshole? If you said yes, maybe you should become a fan of "The guy who decked Snooki" on Facebook. Tip via stationendrama, who summarized her feelings for this with a succinct "ugh."
  • Katynels posted an article titled "Why is there no female Tiger Woods?" in which Richard Cohen writes: "women seem not to have the evolutionary urge to couple with cheaply dressed strangers. They have a stronger need to mother - to have a child and then raise that child." Yup, he really breaks down the whole Tiger Woods-sex-scandal thing to Darwinian urges. Reductionist, but topical!
  • And to round out our roundup, m.e. stijl has expressed annoyance with Brooklyn-based stationary company Dictator Goods for creating "greeting cards for men." The NYT Magazine links the cards with all the typical manly-man things: Don Draper, emotional withholding, and refusal to eat quiche.

Have a good story tip? We'd love to hear about it, via our tips tagpage here. You can add a tip by entering a comment into the bar at the top of the page ("Let your fingers do the talking") and ending with the hashtag #tips. Reminder: We appreciate all tips, but do make sure to leave more than just a link. As with all comments, the best tips are those that get into detail and display thought, reflection, and wit.
