In today’s EOD roundup, a study published in the American Sociological Review concluded that men who performed “traditionally female” household chores had less sex than those who didn’t. Now, I have the upmost respect for science but I just can’t believe this — I mean, who thinks that a man cooking dinner isn’t’ sexy? Anyone? Anyone? I rest my case. Keep on washing them dishes, sexy men!

What if Americans could bail each other out in exactly the way the government bailed out the banks at the beginning of the 2008 financial crisis? What if we could take out of control credit card debt, student debt, and bad mortgages, and make them vanish? Does that sound crazy to you? It sounds a little crazy to us, and yet…

We talked to nearly every protester who showed up at the Calvin Klein fashion show today, in Occupy Wall Street’s attempt to occupy fashion week on its last day. Talking to all of them wasn’t too difficult, since only five or six made it. The plan had been to march up to 39th Street, where the show was taking place, and try to get attendees to paint their faces red for the 2 p.m. show. If that didn’t work out, they’d try to shut down the second 3 p.m. show. Calvin Klein took notice and heightened security, and the media was ready and watching. As you’ll see, things didn’t exactly go according to plan.

Across the country, folks have set up tents, hunkered down and prepared for a few cold nights. Sure, it’ll get tough sometimes. But these people — who come from all backgrounds — are united in their mission for economic parity.
Occupy Wall Street? Nope. I’m talking about Black Friday! Although, judging by the news coverage surrounding this post-Turkey Day right of passage, it’d be easy to get the two confused.

We can finally say goodbye to the tents at Zuccotti Park. While protesters will still be able to congregate during the daytime, the tent city that stood for two months came to an end last night as police in riot gear cleared the area. Angry Occupy Wall Street proteters filtered up from the Financial District and into the rest of Manhattan throughout all hours of the night. But was it the right call?

Sure, we all knew it, especially after Occupy Lego Land became a thing: People looooove talking about Occupy Wall Street. Pretty much all the time. Now we have a report to prove that.

More evidence this morning that the Occupy Wall Street protesters aren’t going anywhere anytime soon: they’ve just purchased roughly $19,200 worth of new tents.
In other words, the protesters will now live in accommodations that cost more than a year’s worth of my apartment rental. I’m not sure whether that says more about them or me.

Okay, well if you’re measuring popularity in terms of Google search results it is, at least.

As Occupy Wall Street protesters marched northwards into Greenwich Village last night, something most ironic happened — they crashed the set of Gossip Girl, the show that famously glorifies the 0.01 percent.

There’s a lot of confusion about Occupy Wall Street — “What is this movement even about?” many have asked. But what about that message of the 1% versus the 99%? What, after all, makes you part of the 1%? It’s actually less than you may have thought.
