- A Powerful Russian Weapon: The Spread of False Stories - you guys, I'm starting to think Russia might not be friendly?

- Edgar Allan Poe Had a Time Machine and I Can Prove It - the title is dumb, but that is some weird stuff! (thanks David!)

- Keeping Kids From Toy Guns: How One Mother Changed Her Mind - interesting!

- 'Mystery Shoppers' Help U.S. Regulators Fight Racial Discrimination At Banks - sad that this is necessary, but I'm glad the CFPB is doing it! (thanks David!)

- Should you take Tylenol, Advil, or aspirin for pain? Here's what the evidence says. - weird, I usually take Tylenol for headaches and it works well for me. Advil for tooth pain is excellent though!
