A semi-regular post in which we stumble down internet rabbit holes to find you interesting, useful or funny links.
- Why Humans Need Stories: Evolutionary theorists are trying to figure out why narratives are so essential to society.
- The Open Secret of Anti-Mom Bias at Work: The bias against working mothers “is often casual, open and unapologetic”.
- The Birth of A New American Aristocracy: The toxic class divide, where we all fit in and why equality matters. Read Slate’s counterargument too. TLDR: If you smoosh them together, it's probably the rich and the upper middle class that need to work together to fix massive inequality, but would they want to? Maybe, if reformation appeals more than violent rebellion.
- Return the Wild: Apex predators are needed to keep second-tier predators in check and ecosystems in balance but our wilderness is too fragmented to support sufficient populations.
- Ironic Tatvertising: When fans have skin in the game, but you never intended them to.
