Unfortunately, we are not the smartest tools in the shed. And we can’t write on every single topic that there is to write about. Thankfully, there are much smarter people out there than us, and they write on lots of things that we either don’t know a lot about or just never thought of.
Here is a list of the various things from around the web that we liked this week. Absorb them into your brainmeats and become a more informed person.
