This is one of my favorite magazines. It's like People magazine for intellectuals. There's nothing in here you NEED to know. And the way it's all presented is sort of...as if you were studying for your PhD in Trivial Pursuit, or entertaining cocktail conversation. |
But yet, strangely compelling. At least to me. At some point in my childhood, I was wired to collect knowledge the way old ladies collect cats.
And usually, it's just stuff of the "huh" or "Hey, did you know..." variety.
But sometimes, it rocks my world a little. I'm really glad I read the following article. It'll help me keep things in perspective this weekend.
