We're back! We're (hopefully) not traveling for a while!
Discussions today include: Barrelhouse's sweet new website; Mary Roach's Spook and the afterlife; Killian's desire for a deep, deep appendix with every work of nonfiction; Daniel discusses whether the human brain is Turing-complete; electromagnetic therapy; pigeons with sad foot mutations; some dictionaries suck, and some are straight-up works of art; speaking of words and art, see The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows; also, this is the real definition of "fallow" (from google, not the beautiful old Webster); LANGUAGE IS ELASTIC AND MAGICAL. PS don't forget to check out our Waggle Dance blog. It's fresh as hell.
