Alexander the Great and the Logistics of the Macedonian Army. One of the most niche and interesting books I’ve read recently. I don’t think most people fully appreciate and comprehend the massive empire he was able to build in just seven (!!!) years through nonstop conquests.

The Soviet Union’s consecutive week (and why it’s a very bad idea).
Dabbawalas are underrated.
A company in Japan makes life-like human-wearble masks of pets.
