Writing, history, science, etymology and EQ tips. Guaranteed 0% hot takes* or current politics (Ancient Egyptian politics: look, sometimes). Think of it as the good bits of the internet without the bits that make your brain feel like a wrung-out dishcloth.

* Okay I have one hot take: People don't have favourite colours, they have favourite tones! If you like dark forest green, you probably also like mustard and plum, but not neon green or pale mint. No one likes every shade of green! Probably you like earth tones or pastels or brights or jewel tones or muted tones. Sadly people don't really ask you what your favourite colour is once you're an adult so I haven't been given an opportunity to Fix The System and I have to resort to propaganda via sign-up form.
