Weekend Roundup

Stories you may have missed while enjoying yourself this weekend:

  • The American phenomenon of hoarding has a long, creepy history (this is absolutely worth reading because it's so freaky) 
  • Continuing a trend from last year, slightly more Americans call themselves "pro-life" than "pro-choice," 47% vs. 45%, according to a May 3-6 Gallup poll
  • While Americans seem more tolerant about living near homosexuals, intolerance to having Muslims or immigrants as neighbors is on the rise. Check out this chart to get the story in a nutshell. 
  • For all those graduating this week, a cute Freakonomics post of the best advice people have ever received. 

There. Now go get some real work done.
