TCR | 2014.10.13 | Back in 2005 when I started the Colbert Report, it was initially for an 8 week tryout. In other words, 32 episodes— and as of tonight there are only 32 episodes of The Colbert Report left. Don’t worry nation even though my show will be off the air, I’ll still be in here… provided that your heart has a DVR.
Ferris Jabr on a new study’s conclusion that people would rather give themselves an electric shock than be alone with their thoughts:
"The human mind is not meant to resemble a postcard from paradise forever fixed in a state of tropical bliss. It’s a vast and perplexing wonderland whose entire topography can change in an instant."
