Insane In The Membrane

Hello, folks. We missed last month thanks to myriad deadline crunches, but I’ll try to make it up to you here. This is February’s Zaleski Minute. As always, if it takes you longer than 60 seconds, complain to management.

What I Was Writing:

  1. For OneZeroTanner Collins was 6 years old when 1/6 of his brain was removed. Doctors didn’t know if he would ever recognize his parents again. And then the miraculous happened — he turned out to be fine. His is the brain that literally remade itself.

  2. For Medium: Meet the internet punks of NoSurf, a group who started logging off of social media before it was trendy.

  3. For Outside: The merits of eating beef is in the news, but in an exploration of (supposed) benefits of the all-meat Carnivore Diet, I ate nothing but animal protein* — a lot of steak — for the entire month of September. (*There’s information about my bowel movements. There’s your trigger warning.)

  4. For The Washington Post Magazine: Take a tour of Maryland’s 3rd Congressional District, one of the most gerrymandered in the United States.

Go Out And Buy:

A copy of the spring 2019 issue of Popular Science, where you can read my feature about the coming age of future transportation. Hyperloop! Self-driving cars! Flying cars! And…jetpacks?
