1. For anyone who cares about the state of higher education in the United States, read and weep. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that the decline in higher education has much to do with the decline in the ability of students to engage in long-form reading, and other deep-attention pursuits.

2. Philosophers meet OkCupid. Hilarity ensues.

3. God needs to do a better job of moderating His comments section. I am surprised that no commenter offered “First!” as a contribution to the debate.

4. The physics of coffee rings, explained.

5. How to properly use the “Sword of Damocles” analogy.
