From C. Lee, and come on, people, this is just weird: People are making Amazon drivers dance for surveillance cameras and posting the footage on TikTok.

This is excellent, and I'm still a huge fan of Excel: Secrets of an Excel esports player: How pros tap the true power of spreadsheets. A neat bit of history: The Revenge of the Hot Water Bottle. A truly unlikely category: Make a Cute Little Salami Rose With a Wine Glass.
