3 Reasons Why Everyone Needs to Learn Markdown
Woah holy crap. This is like the 14th “you need to learn markdown” story that has had big nebulous boring reasons I don’t give a shit about but this one ACCIDENTALLY included one that makes life so much better. I had no idea that markdown handled links as [a thing in brackets] [1]

Webcomics Roundup
Not even really a webcomic I guess but this is probably the single greatest commentary on holo-tupac I’ve seen on the web.
