Meta: How Beveled Is Your Guilt?, or How Guilty Are Your Bevels?

Submitted by Jon06 on October 26th, 2011 at 7:51 PM

In a great feat of not paying attention to my wife, I managed to be surprised by a birthday copy of Three and Out, despite the fact that she asked me for its title several times in the days leading up to my birthday. In addition, and not at all to emphasize that she makes way more money than I do, she gave me a note for an MGoBlog donation of some yet-to-be-determined amount. I don't know how much to tell her to donate, so I thought I'd put it out there for the MGoCommunity to weigh in. (Please keep in mind that, while she is outearning me like its the alternate reality 50s, neither of us is making bank, so keep it reasonable.)

I think Hoke has changed the tide on donations. Hell people in Ohio are starting to believe in beveled guilt. Never in a million years I would have thought that. Selling milksteaks is a good start.

but I'm tired. Look at the cost of  a Rivals or Scout subscription and then pay that or pay double that, depending on how much you think this site is worth compared to a paid site.

Let me get this straight...

a) your wife is a sugar momma who recognizes and honors your love for Michigan football 

b)  she wants to share her largesse with Brian, and, ergo, the mgoblog community

c)  you don't pay attention to her

Jon, please, open your eyes before it's too late!

Last year I gave Mgoblog and zerohedge $100 each.  I will also be giving before the year is out.


As far as I am concerned if the internet consisted of only those two sites I would be set.


Think about it this way - you should be paying the sites that you value about the same as you would be paying the hardcopy media that they are replacing...


Annual WSJ sub = 2.29/wk ~ $120

Annual SI = $48

Annual daily NYT = $385

Annual USA Today = $130

Annual Freep = $85

Dear Sir,


I highly reccommend you take a momant to consider my letter before making such payment to your mgoblahg.  My name is Sumi Kimbawana, and was quite acquaintable with your dear uncel Brain.  If you must make payment to such mgobog, I must let you know that Brain is currently with me and needs wire transfer of exactly the amount you were planning to donate, to return to the land from which he was born.  Please reply to me at your most urgent hour so that we can set up the payment immediattly.

I am a law enforcement dispactcher (fancy term for the dude on the radio) and we get calls almost daily of people getting scammed anywhere from $100 - $40,000 from multiple variations of the Nigerian prince scam. A fool and his money......

Everyone who buys Three and Out should buy it through Brian's Amazon link.  That way, you get the book for what is probably the best pirce, and Brian gets a buck or two for his hard work.  It would be pretty cool if about 3,000 of us all bought Three and Out and maybe another book or two through his link.  

I would really like to see a permanent Amazon affiliate link somewhere on the site.  Maybe it could be part of the beveled guilt tab.  If we habitually did our Amazon shopping through his link, it would be a win-win situation for everyone involved.

We would get cool stuff at great prices, and Amazon would make the donation.

I understand "guilt," but why is it "beveled"?  I have been perplexed about the origin of the term "beveled guilt" for as long as I have been following the blog, and I have not found an explanation for it anywhere on the site (FAQ, etc.).

Can anyone help me out?
