Grab Bag Friday: Procrastination

This week, while a huge mound of laundry piled in my bedroom, and dirty dishes overtook even the smallest recesses of my kitchen, I really enjoyed delving into Slate's special issue on Procrastination.

Some interesting, funny highlights guaranteed to waste some time:

Seth Stevenson's Letter to a Young Procrastinator: Some last-minute advice from a veteran slacker

Josh Levin's Solitaire-y Confinement: Why we can't stop playing a computerized card game

Daniel Engber's The Unfinished Stories: All the stuff we never got around to including in the special issue. My favorite headline from this one:

"Doing Things vs. Not Doing Them: Which is better for the environment?"
