Short and sweet this week. Enjoy.
- An oldie but a goodie. The Oatmeal has a piece on why we shouldn’t celebrate Columbus Day. Basically, Christopher Columbus was a huge, genocidal asshole.
- Tumblr user Kazerad has an essay on self-defined identity versus taxonomic identity, and how conflicts arise from improperly differentiating between the two. It’s a very good piece, but I wish it spent more time discussing how taxonomic identity arises in the first place.
- Finally, Kotaku commenter Archaotic is tired of your shit.
Alright, I’m out of here. Buh-bye!
