The newspaper contacted several such individuals and was told that many of the … Continue reading Animal brothels legal in Denmark
Technology has fed our addiction to light, and might help us end it. By Dirk Hanson Illustration by Miko Maciaszek In 1996, Yale economist William D. Nordhaus calculated that the average citizen of Babylon would have had to work a total of 41 hours to buy enough lamp oil to equal a 75-watt light bulb burning for one hour.

The internet promised to feed our minds with knowledge. What have we learned? That our minds need more than that by Dougald Hine On my morning bus into town, every teenager and every grown-up sits there staring into their little infinity machine: a pocket-sized window onto more words than any of us could ever read, more music than we could ever listen to, more pictures of people getting naked than we could ever get off to.
