The word-hoard: Robert Macfarlane on rewilding our language of landscape:

Come ye, horsemen.

"As I had been entranced by the language preserved in the prose‑poem of the “Peat Glossary”, so I was dismayed by the language that had fallen (been pushed) from the dictionary. For blackberry, read Blackberry."

KAPITALISM EI TÄHENDA KOORIMIST:

Osta "Capital" meie käest 25 eest. Või kui väga tahad võid maksta Rahvaraamatule 34 sama raamatu eest. See on meie viimane ekslempar. Snooze you lose. Kes ees, see mees.

There's fan fiction, and then there's, well, this:

A reader sent us this suggesting we develop an entire campaign of Anna-Maria bookstore ads. And why not? Might you, dear reader, suggest some lines?

'Party Like a President' reveals history of Oval Office boozing:

'FDR's "deplorable invention," according to his son James Roosevelt, was the Haitian Libation, which consisted of orange juice, dark rum, an egg white and a dash of brown sugar on the rocks.'

Funnily enough, "The Haitian Libation" came in a close second when we were naming Slothrop's.

Feeling lost in the wilderness of life? Look no further, fellow adventurer:

In TRUE GRIT, "Survivalist" Bear Grylls shares the stories of some explorers and their gritty tales of survival that inspired him.

Personally, my favorite episode of "Man vs. Wild" is where Bear is alone somewhere in the far reaches of Northern Sweden; in Sápmi. When the cold and hunger start to get to him, he does what any true man of the land would do: he breaks into a random hunter's cabin that he comes across, smashes the furniture to use for firewood, and steals a pair of wooden skis from the wall so that he can go on to find a dead reindeer, accidentally drop it off of a frozen...

What a man.
