A Wall Street Journal reporter's tone-deaf account of a visit to NYC's most brutal prison http://tktk.gawker.com/gleeful-wsj-reporter-takes-hilarious-tour-of-rikers-isl-1691066405 …
So you're given a guided tour of a prison-complex-cum-nightmare-chamber where beatings are frequent and inmates die without medical care. What do you do? Pull out the iPhone and fire up Twitter--it's time for some laffs, baby.

AJ Jacobs wrote about WikiTree. It's interesting -- basically, moving to a worldwide family tree.

A romance novel based on Michele Bachmann. I'm holding out for the inevitable Tom Clancy crossover. http://www.salon.com/2013/05/21/the_bachmann_inspired_romance_novel/?utm_source=feedly

Can you mathematically plot hipster music? This obscure graph (you've probably never heard of it) does just that. http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/03/identifying-hipster-bands-and-bro-bands-a-scientific-study/ …
Find out which acts are the most obscure and which are the most mainstream.

I love Sesame Street parodies. That having been said, there's something a little twisted about a Hunger Games parody for five-year-olds. Well, really, a lot twisted. On the other hand, I'm holding out hope for "The Muppet Centipede." Sesame Street: The Hungry Games- Catching Fur (Hunger Games: Catching Fire Parody)

Warren Buffett created a kid's program. I watched it. It was seriously -- unintentionally?-- trippy. http://www.dailyfinance.com/on/warren-buffett-secret-millionaires-club-financial-literacy/ …
Warren Buffett is producing and starring in "Secret Millionaires Club," an animated web program that teaches children financial lessons. Great idea -- but weird execution.

So market analysis isn't the most exciting thing in the world, but I enjoyed writing this piece about how Campbell's push for healthier soups may not be working out all that well.  http://www.dailyfinance.com/2013/08/29/campbell-soup-salt-content-looming-health-tempest/
Campbell Soup has had another profitable quarter, but potential trouble over whether its healthy soups are as healthy as advertised looms on the horizon.
