Technically, I suppose, this isn't strictly about language; but Simon Winchester posted praise about it, and that's good enough for me. The site lists different kinds of articles (and maybe more--I've not really explored the place yet). Click on the title of any article you want to read; if you want more in that category (ex. Society), click on the category name in the same box as your article. I love the internet!

I had a quick preview, Jackie and will get back to it later.
The first article I saw was about MegaMan and I'm interested in that because his big profile arrest happened in NZ.

Kinda disturbing, but they posted a link to a GQ article titled "Burning Man."

It reminds me a bit of the "Words with Friends" post down below. It's not related to education so much as training the brain or tricking the brain in useful ways.
