Howdy! Welcome to the our weekly open thread on interesting reads! This is where to post links to those great things that made you say "Ah!" when you read them, so the rest of us can read them too!
So what is the most interesting thing you've read in the past week?
It can be anything - a book, a news article, a blog post, a recipe, a cartoon, anything goes...
And please - if there's a link, link it; if it's a recipe post it. :D
