Retired Posts

Here lie the remains of the posts that have been removed from our general catalog. The reasons for their removals vary, but in most cases it is because the article in question could no longer live up to the Damn Interesting standards. In some cases the article relied too heavily on links that are now broken, in others they were too news-oriented so they grew irrelevant, and still others they were later deemed to be only moderately interesting. Dot com.

Most of these are from our early days when we were occasionally concerned with quantity over quality. Oh, the folly of youth. We may later revisit some of these topics to give them the treatment they deserve, but for now we leave these jars of pickled articles in this pantry for any who become hungry enough to sample the blandness.

Most of these leave something to be desired, so use only in case of emergency.

Sorry to interrupt. It seems you've read at least whole articles now. Yay! This is a reader-supported project, and you can get stuff for donating. Would you like to know more?
