A cheeseburger cannot exist outside of a highly developed, post-agrarian society. It requires a complex interaction between a handful of vendors—in all likelihood, a couple of dozen—and the ability to ship ingredients vast distances while keeping them fresh. The cheeseburger couldn’t have existed until nearly a century ago as, indeed, it did not.

Dave Grohl kicks a guy out of a Foo Fighters show for fighting. From my point of view, Grohl has been a great guy his entire life.

American McCarver: This Is What Derek Jeter Did Yesterday 



This is what Derek Jeter did yesterday. He woke up with 2,998 hits, an aging superstar in decline. He started a game at Yankee Stadium on a beautiful afternoon, the stadium filled to capacity with fans expecting to see history made — or perhaps better put, expecting to see Jeter make history.

     Because I am a Red Sox fan, I hate the Yankees and I hate Derek Jeter. With that being said, I would like to give him an internet standing-O for his performance yesterday and the 17 seasons worth of yesterdays before that. He is one of the all-time greats, and it was a pleasure to watch him, albeit from the opposite side. Congratulations on 3000 hits, you goddamn Yankee D-bag.
