The Wednesday Four (03/02/16)

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? But we’re back! Or, rather, I’m back since there’s only one of me. Anyway, onto the links.

  • How to Speak Cat New research says that feline communication is possible—but not intuitive. (Atlas Obscura) – If only we could convince cats to stop spreading their allergens so I could own one! Someone I don’t think that’s going to happen, though.
  • What Should We Say About David Bowie and Lori Maddox? (Jezebel)
  • The Deep Space of Digital Reading Why we shouldn’t worry about leaving print behind. (Natilus)
  • Dark books What’s more wholesome than reading? Yet books wield a dangerous power: the best erode self, infecting readers with ideas (Aeon) – Yes, give me all the bad books! Okay, not really, but who are we to tell people what to read? But, seriously, this is a great article.

You get a bonus link today because it was both the first election I voted AND the year I graduated from high school/my first year of college.
