Weekend Reading

Since there tend to be a flurry of threads and comments on weekdays and fewer on weekends, this thread collects one-off, irregular, new, or lower-profile threads from earlier in the week (last Saturday – Friday). This doesn’t include every single thread (what would be the point of that?) — it’s more threads that people may have missed and wish they’d known about or might want to know about moving forward (so if it’s a well-established recurring thread or a stand-alone thread that got plenty of traction already, I probably left it out — though I might include a well-traveled or long-running thread from time to time just to catch the eye of someone who, for instance, had no idea there’s a daily Jeopardy! recap thread). I’m sure I left out a thread I should have included, and vice versa, but I promise it’s not personal! Feel free to tag me (@forget_it_jake:disqus) about anything you wish were here but isn’t (e.g., your thread got a decent amount of attention, but you’d like to see it featured here anyway), and I’ll edit it in (and you can promote it in the comments!).
