Anyone in possession of eyes, ears or even a semi-conscious state can’t escape learning of some new report each month detailing the evils of automobiles and their noxious fumes. I say: Shut up. We’re all going to croak eventually, so let’s not stress over a few toxins here and there when there are such marvelous delights to be had inside and near our automobiles. Below, a few of life’s sweet pleasures we couldn’t enjoy without cars:

Five reasons why I’ll take the Apocalypse over New Year’s Eve.

It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine!” Perhaps R.E.M. front man Michael Stipe was looking on the bright side of the apocalypse: No more New Year’s Eves! As 2011 draws to a close, and apparently the end is nigh, it’s comforting to know that humanity can rally around two constants: pizza is delicious and New Years Eve is the worst.

What’s not to love about the High Holidays, other than having to see your weird Uncle Morty, who has sweaty palms and smells like mothballs? The shofar’s heralding a new year and, of course, fasting.

Think you can skip this year since you didn’t transgress? Think again, friends. Gina has compiled a list of sins you might have forgotten about. If any of the following apply to you, which surely one does, perhaps you should consider doing that fast after all.

Wait until you meet your new co-workers!

May is here — and with it a slew of spritely college graduates charging into the workforce. New grads, I’d like to help with that transition.

The remaining preparation will come from this: Gina’s “New Graduate’s Guide to Awful Co-Workers.” Read it and weep.
