I speak Russian, so I clicked on the video clips because I wanted to hear Russian in a 'you are getting sleeeepy' tone. Instead, I heard a 'here's your to-do list after you get home from school and don't forget to take the dog for a walk before you start it' tone. I can't believe this relaxed people!

Who is this article about? What Seattle grocery stores don't have bananas? This feels like it was written by someone who works for Amazon and doesn't realize there is an entire city outside of their campus who does not know or care about their cafeteria policies.

Silly story. Live in Seattle, had no idea about this and buy bananas twice per week from stores that do, in fact, still carry bananas. How many of the other stories from Atlas Obscura actually obscura the truth?

I remember when my husband got his degree in Child Development, he was taught not to use food as manipulatives (counting marshmallows or whatever for math) or art, as some of his students might be food insecure and have a real struggle with wasting food in that way when they were chronically hungry (or remember being chronically hungry). This just seems grossly wasteful to me.

The best way to wreck your CDs is to put them in the microwave (for no more than a few seconds, lest you wreck your microwave as well). You'll get a cool light show, and the resulting coaster looks rad!

Vinyl! I'm buying all my new stuff on vinyl, and ripping it to MP3 to listen to when I'm away from home now. I've got records from the '50s right up to today that play as perfectly as the day they were pressed. Yes it takes up space, but the large format of the cover art makes it worth it in my eyes. Spotify is cool for trying stuff out, but I love the ritual of putting an LP on... Same with books. I'll download and read any old shite onto my kindle, but if it's a book I really love, I'll buy a hardback.
