Re: “Best Indian restaurant

Wow. You'd think with our Indian community we could've come up with something better. This is like awarding Panda Express best Chinese.

Re: “What a Deal! 50% Off Your Job Prospects!

@me3dia
You're right, non-compete contracts are common in business, but put down your Madmen DVDs and pay attention...

It's highly uncommon to ask applicants* to sign a non-compete.

*The keyword is applicant.

If you're not going to sue someone for taking on a job, why is it a "non-compete" versus a "non-disclosure" which would protect Groupon's proprietary rights without limiting an applicant's options.

After all, the point of a non-compete is that you *can* sue. If you wouldn't, then take it out.

If isn't about proprietary rights and about slander, a non-compete won't take care of that since slander is illegal.

Any way your PR sugarcoats it, asking applicants to sign a non-compete is brutal overkill.

Re: “Grahamwich

Couldn't agree more with this review.

Overrated. It's like fast food for Top Chef fans who've never really eaten the foods he's slamming together in a clumsy way.

It's like Elliott is such a hipster the irony couldn't be controlled anymore and everything oozes it there.

And with the average bill being about $20 there, cash only in that neighborhood is idiotic at best. Sure there's an ATM, but that means you're bill is more like $25 for a sandwich, chips, and soda.

Go to XOCO down the street. Same wait. Less cost. Credit cards accepted. Oh, and seats.

Drank too much santorum in your youth? You're reading the wrong column dear.

Maybe you reread Dan's advice, but did you reread MAD's letter?

Ouch. This guy sounds like he's bitten the bullet from women a few times and doesn't care for gay men. I read, "You may not like pussy yourself, you cocksucker, but you'll take the twat's side every time." And I read "you cocksucker" as a discrete way of saying "you __gay slur__". If he really believed Dan was simply a sexist, it could have been a slew of other words.

Not to mention, you have to question the intelligence of anyone, who in this day and age, feels the need to use WORDS WITH ALL CAPITALIZATION to make a point.

PS. I've been reading this column for over 10 years. He has come down on women a lot for being unable to forgive a man for kissing a woman during marriage. His advice has always been, "Work it out. Marriage is about resolution and not perfection."

STH's wife kissed the man 2 years before they got married. Did you catch that? That's total bullshit. Are you fucking kidding me? You're obsessed with a 2 year old kiss?

Did you ever notice most straight women lie to their guys about how many people they sleep with? Straight men are such babies when it comes to the fact that women have sex drives and sex lives.

@eggplantsurprise

The deal is that:
1. You and your friends are lying and trying to keep up appearances that you're "normal".

2. You are your friends constitute a "congenial" circle. Ever talk to a hardline republican who swears "everyone they know thinks Obama sucks" or a hardline democrat who swears "everyone they know loves Obama"? People surround themselves with likeminded people and think that's the general consensus, when in actuality it's not.

3. Dan publishes amusing things. Most men are not that amusing.

4. I don't know what column you're reading. Women seem to have plenty of intuitively contradictory fantasies and fetishes too. Rape being a pretty common one.

5. No need to perpetuate the broken stereotypes that women are less sexual just because you want to project that idea.
