Post-it notes. The world would be in chaos without them. Nobody would remember anything. Nobody would be able to play who am i?. And nobody would be able to have the sort of epic Post-it note battle that recently took place in New York.

Maybe he'll be reincarnated as a honey badger? Did Chicago swallow him up? The ocean? Or did the new boat arrive and there are better things to do now?

In Manhattan alone, roughly two out of every five buildings are taller, bulkier, bigger or more crowded than current zoning allows. And often that can actually be a good thing.

The headline says it all
The state legalized recreational use of marijuana before a commonplace water conservation tool.

I'm down for seeing how men feel about bond boys.

Huge!
 
60,000 jobs in one go, more than half the workforce of this Foxconn factory have been terminated thanks to robotics becoming cheap enough to implement.

Technical unemployment (replacement of workers by automation, usually either software or robotics) is accelerating. Some estimates suggest as much as 40% of current jobs could be replaced within the next decade.

Will we prepare for the massive unemployment this will lead to if we follow current patterns? We should be reducing the number of hours considered full time employment as well as increasing pay more in line with productivity gains, at a minimum, in order to maintain current levels of employment and stave off social instability. Better yet, explore options like UBI and co-operative enterprise ownership (by employees, customers, or both, not the state) because we're looking at a severe jobs shortage by the time today's toddlers are entering the workforce en masse (20 years-ish).

What are the phrases which allow you to stop reading, safe in the knowledge that you won’t learn anything? My classic examples are “bankster” and “feminazi,”
