Bing laments that we now live in a world where if a person has a drink over business, he or she has to be carted off to the sanitarium, or at least the Company's Employee Assistance Program. But business and the right amount of booze equals productivity, argues Bing, adding that the sooner we implement that equation, the sooner we'll be back on the road to growth and recovery."
The Narrative Fallacy writes: "As a public service "The Best Article Every Day" is providing James S. Huggins' cheat sheet for the five toughest questions that women ask men that may be specially helpful to male nerds, geeks, and other socially challenged individuals. "If the man answers incorrectly (i.e., tells the truth), every single one is absolutely guaranteed to explode into a major argument," writes Huggins. The questions are: What are you thinking about? Do you love me? Do I look fat? Do you think she is prettier than me? What would you do if I died? As a special bonus the article includes not only the correct answer to each question but the five answers most typically given and why each of them is wrong."
