That is one dense-ass article.

Is this like 102 green-lights at once? How the hell are we supposed to make 102 different smart-ass comments?

So, are the stories spectacularly nonfiction or spectacular stories that are also nonfiction?

I really liked that list. Made for interesting reading.

pkellmey: So, are the stories spectacularly nonfiction or spectacular stories that are also nonfiction?


Spectacularly written long-form (for the most part) journalism.  This guy has been putting this list out for the last couple years and he does a good job of pulling out stuff from Slate, Harper's, Rolling Stone, etc that is well written, in-depth reporting on an interesting and important story.  Not all of it is pertinent to every reader, but it's usually worth scrolling through and pulling out ten or fifteen things that you think you might like to read.

I think the first Taibbi story I ever read was off of this list, come to think of it.

I remember a couple of these, actually. Remember reading #7, #10 and #80.

Dammit...some of these look really interesting and I'm actually busy working today.

Goddamn. Read the murder story and the dying kids story and I'm done for the day. Farking done.

I still have about eight stories queued up to read (I've already gone through about 15-20)... really great list, even if not all the articles are about things that interest me.

Just read The Expendables, great story about the French Foreign Legion.  If I were a younger man, I'd strongly consider joining, I enjoyed being in the US Army but man being a Legionnaire sounds like one hell of an adventure.

Wow, these articles are excellent.  My favorite so  far is #34, about a guy who created a language that became adopted by a cult-like, extremist group.  It was also an amazing read  on the psycology of language

If its Adrian Chen, does it really count?  Hard to separate his fiction and nonfiction.

Fark needs a tag for productivity killers.  Maybe like "fired" or something.  Too bad you couldn't fit Trump's toupee in.
