Great writing that is fun to read

Just yesterday, the Internet Scout introduced me to the Fathom project at the U. of Chicago. It contains excellently written articles on odd and memorable topics. I read "Carnal Ignorance" by Prof. Wendy Doniger and "Ancient Greek Love Magic" by Prof. Christopher Faraone. These may sound like dull or uninteresting topics but they 100% are not. They are about being a human being and the difficulties we all face in life.

I also recommend "The Biology of B-Movie Monsters" by Prof. Michael C. LaBarbera. It is interesting to think about a man who is 50 feet tall or an inch tall and other fantasies and their biological difficulties.

There are many intriguing articles and I am looking forward to others I find there.
