Why podcasts are suddenly “back”
Talking to reporters is like talking to the police: ideally, don’t. You have little to gain and a lot to lose, their incentives often conflict with yours, and they have all of the power.

The Easiest Tricks for Bypassing YouTube's Annoying Age Restrictions on NSFW Videos
YouTube is the first place I go to watch funny videos online—me and about a billion other people. But one thing that always annoys me is having to sign in time after time to view age-restricted videos. There should be a function to designate me as an "Explicit Is Legit" user, so I only have to enter in my information once as long as I am on the same computer or device. I will sadly be older than 18 for the rest of my life, so having to confirm this more than once is a little annoying. Luckily, there is a simple trick that bypasses this small annoyance. Thanks to a couple crafty Redditors, we

How Things makes me even more awesome
Around nine months ago, Isaac Keyet persuaded me to try Things for Mac by Cultured Code. I usually prefer plain text, but that’s too simple for the stuff I jot down. With keyboard shortcuts galore, I quickly fell in love with this app. It costs $49.99 for Mac, $9.99 for iPhone, and $19.99 for iPad…

Sex and drugs and radiation: Dare-devil 'stalkers' illegally enter Chernobyl's Dead Zone
A teenager in green and black paramilitary gear is speaking Russian in a hushed, low voice. An overgrown graveyard is barely visible off to the right of him. Traditional Ukrainian cloths hang on a few crosses. A white stork passes overhead. "This should be the cemetery," he says. He puts away his GPS. He holds his hand-held Geiger counter up over a mound of dirt that covers radioactive machinery; the beeping goes wild and the numbers shoot up. 1.1.7, 1.1.8, 1.1.9. "This is beyond the scale," he says, half-scared and half-thrilled. He moves away from the spot. The carcass of Chernobyl's Reactor No. 4 punctuates the distance.

Coping With Suicidal Thoughts While Waiting For Wellbutrin To Kick In
Around the time of Robin Williams' suicide (so very recently) I was having intrusive thoughts of suicide as well. To be honest, I just kept telling myself over and over, "These are just thoughts. You are imbalanced right now. Soon you will feel better." I treated myself with great compassion, but just like I would treat someone with the flu or another disorder of the body that will go away with the right medication. "I am just sick right now. I do not have to obey these thoughts. My mind is producing them because it is not fully functioning like it needs to. But every day, in every way, I am getting better, better, and better."

Acts of despair… suicide in prison
"The latest annual report issued by the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman (PPO) makes very grim reading. Even the title – A Rising Toll of Despair – fails to prepare the reader for the dismal and unremitting catalogue of tragedy, casual negligence, inhumanity and institutional failure that afflicts our failing prison system."
