  • I am deeply fascinated by this state-by-state guide to where you are most likely to have a Craigslist “Missed Connection.” Forget about getting yourself out to parties and wine tastings, ladies: it’s all happening down at the Wal-Mart.  (Psychology Today via the Daily What)
  • Similarly fascinating,  but on a far bleaker note: descriptions and illustrations from an 1883 guide to recognizing insane people. (Flavorwire)
  • Gun owners love Starbucks. (Time)
  •  Now that’s a love letter. (Letters of Note)
  • Please don’t ever change, Jennifer Lawrence. (Vulture)

    Another good place might be Whole Foods at night.
