I highly recommend you read the October 2011 issue of Canadian Geographic. From plans to revamp Canada's capital to new farming technology, it's chock full of interesting things.
In this week's issue of the online Matilda Ziegler Magazine for the Blind, there is an article by a woman who is learning braille. Learning braille after you've already learned to read print must be a bizarre experience.
In the same issue there is an article about a 99 year old Italian man who wants to divorce his wife after learning of an affair she had over 60 years ago. This man is a bastard for doing this. Yeah, buddy, just throw 77 years of your life away like that.
