- This is why I don’t do things like this: because eventually, Google will just come along and make it better (and in this case, I still need some convincing that this is worth any effort at all).
- Jason Kottke’s gems from the archives of the New York Times and first NY Times restaurant review, circa 1859?
- Richard Dawkins: What if you’re wrong?
- Cramming hurts your long-term memory.
- Chuck Klosterman, the Author Photos. In his book IV, Klosterman discusses the outfit in the last photo. He purchased it from a Gap where a mannequin was wearing all three items (shirt, sweater, jeans), because “(a) I assume the kind of people who dress mannequins spend a lot of time considering aesthetics, (b) this eliminated the decision making, and (c) I am somewhat ‘mannequin-shaped.’”
- Famous literary lines and how to use them in conversation.
- Bid farewell to the hyphen.
- Book sculptures. See also the photography of Abelardo Morell.
- William Strunk Jr’s The Elements of Style, pre-White’s additions (but you really do need the full version, with White’s stuff).
- Great History Channel documentary about Freemasonry. No conspiracy theories here, just lots of great history. (Also lots of goofiness — “the concept of the three”? “the concept of the four”??)
