A single morning commute is enough time to gather a thousand seething resentments. People shove you, they litter, they smoke while blocking the sidewalk.

I don’t think vegetarians feel they are “missing out” on the experience of eating turkey, but I do think they miss out on some of the decadent pageantry. Thanksgiving should have a big reveal, but that reveal doesn’t have to be a dead animal. Read more...

I love using Night Mode for apps and sites whenever possible. Darker colors are easier on your eyes, even during the daytime, and you can even save a little battery power on your laptop or smartphone by trading a bright white screen for something a little more subdued.Read more...
