An empire is an immense egotism – Ralph Waldo Emerson
A few months ago, we semi-quietly took over Bitter Lawyer with the hopes that we could expand the already substantial bitterness present there. We love writing things like “Ten Things Never To Say To Your Law Prof” as much as the next vitriol-fueled person, but we realized that we had so many more bitter things to weigh in upon. Hence Bitter Empire. There’s science and technology over at Bitter SciTech, arts and entertainment over at Bitter Critic, everything we couldn’t think of is stuffed into Bitter Endings, and, of course, curmudgeonly ramblings and angry listicles about the law at Bitter Lawyer.
When it comes to writers, we are genuinely fortunate to have an embarrassment of riches and you should stay for them even if you loathe us.
So please have a look around, stay awhile, click through to our advertisers because we really did quit our day jobs for this, even though we are the kind of people that really don’t have the temperament to work without a net.
We’d like to last longer than the Empire in Star Wars, but we probably won’t make it to Holy Roman Empire lengths, as humans will have wrecked the Earth by then. Let’s split the difference and hope we are around long enough to cover the Singularity.
