Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

What it was is my birthday is 5 days after my grandmother's.  She will be 85 on Easter Sunday (April 24) this year and I will be 29 on April 29.  I just found out that every single one of the out-of-town family members will leave before my birthday.  I started throwing a little "pity party" complaining that my birthday is always overshadowed by hers, which is the truth, but still why would I cry over something like that?"

I thought I was the only one on the forum to pick Bush out of the Information Era presidents...and now 2 people join me!

(and one of them, Republitarian, is exactly the same as me in all of the choices)

The "Information Era presidents" category is probably the worst one. All three were/are absolutely horrendous presidents.

We've had a succession of awful presidents ever since Coolidge, with only a few that just barely edge into positive for me (Ike, Carter, and Reagan).  Gerald Ford and Clinton did not have totally awful presidencies, but that was mainly due to the short timespan in the case of the first and the hostile Congress in the case of the second.
