We had a Drinking Club meeting last night, and we may have found the first bar in New York City that we are not allowed back to. More on that in the next recap.
Here’s what you missed this week:
- Can looking at literature tell us how happy we were at a given point in time? It’s got about the same credibility as a Magic 8 ball. (Vox)
- Someone decided to investigate why so many books have “wife” in the title, and the result is maybe one of the best sentences written: “we did leave in titles that made puns because puns make life worth living.” (BookNet Canada)
- We’ve shared some pieces about archaic slang before, but now you can test your knowledge (or become totally perplexed, as I was). (Mental Floss)
