Some favorites here! Especially the Dead Zone (there wasn’t a better time to learn about viruses and Nordic necromancy), the marathon article (what an inspiration) and the drop-shipping article (a weird reality).
Yup! I agree (x3) with your spotlights.
For me, the one about Radical Honesty really stands out too. So many details and ideas from that one still come back to me on a daily basis. Memorable, interesting and directly relevant to everyday life. What more can you ask for?
I got confused with that one and the other one "Everything You Know About Obesity Is Wrong". The latter I've read (Readup tells me!), but the former not (clearly I should!). Something tells me they're very different articles.
The sequence of "I Think You’re Fat", "The Agonizing Last Words of Programmer Bill Zeller", "The Children of Pornhub" spooked me out a little: many shocking titles & difficult topics! Good articles on thorny issues do well here. Luckily it's not all issues in the list.
