- A good article on science and psychology
- Fun three page article on truth. I guess it's pretty popular with modern philosophy people.
- Comedic mega-genius Jack Handey has been, almost every day, posting one or two-paragraph short stories which he hasn't been archiving, so get 'em while they're hot. Example:
"He was a cowboy, mister, and he loved the land. He loved it so much he made a woman out of dirt and married her. But when he kissed her, she disintegrated. Later, at the funeral, when the preacher said 'Dust to dust,' some people laughed, and the cowboy shot them. At his hanging, he told the others, 'I’ll be waiting for you in heaven — with a gun.'"
An over-the-top combination of violent slapstick and the most miserable of British humour.
It takes a handful of sturdy, reliable sitcom tropes and twists them into near-unrecognizability. The entire cast is brilliant, the writing is excellent, and Roisin Conaty's blind enthusiasm brilliantly offsets the rest of the show. Even with a rocky first episode, I couldn't recommend this strongly enough.
