TUMBOLIST is a private forum for professionally accomplished thinkers to openly exchange ideas in a way that no one outside the forum should never see or learn about or know exist.

You really don’t have any ethics at all, do you? When was it, do you think, that you actually auctioned off the last portion of your soul, your humanity? And for what? Think about that.
If you’re still reading you must be one of the good ones, so welcome. Anyone can post anything without editing because we’re all adults here. We look forward to your participation. Please do not share the password (there is no password) or contents or membership or the idea or the URL or the constituent letters of the word “tumbolist” with anyone outside of Tumbolist, including your colleagues or loved ones. If you suspect your colleagues or loved ones are also members of Tumbolist, the right thing to do is just live your lives as if none of you knows about it. That’s your work and your life. This? This is Tumbolist.
“Jen, look at me. Now look at your womb. Now back to me. Sadly, your womb isn’t filled with the baby you’ve longed for, but look up! You’re in a movie with a man who is me and now your womb is filled with diamonds.”—Perhaps not all blog comments are worthless after all
“I think there is a “Mad Men” show about our era and it’s “Breaking Bad.” If someone wanted a social document—like “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” was for women’s lib—then I think “Breaking Bad” is that right now. It’s about facing the void, the merciless universe. [The main character, Walter White] has cancer and decides not to fight it and is trying to make as much money as possible for his family before he dies. As a woman in her late twenties who just published a book, I’m never going to have a pension and I know that. I feel like that show is about us.”—Well said, NVC. Looking forward to Breaking Bad Uncooked.
