On The Week of February 11 - 15

Hello there, I am a casual reader of this site, and I love it!
I just have one point of order- the links in the articles are a too much like the non-link text of the article. I don't know if it's just me, but a lot of the time I just can't discern which words are links unless I highlight the entire page. The color of the link is just too similar to the color of the regular text. It's especially bad when the link is hidden in a block of text; I always feel like I'm potentially missing out on some delightful link the author wanted to share with me, the reader.
I'm sure the website design was very deliberate and it looks great, except for this one tiny thing. Could you maybe embolden the linked text, or make it so it's always underlined, not just when you hover over it? Just one reader's suggestion.

On Amusingly Horrible Things I Have Said: The Bracket

I realize I'm suuuuper late to this and I don't know if anyone will ever even read this comment, but I just discovered this website and this thread in particular spoke to me. I have to share mine.
My boyfriend was kind of recently in a serious car accident in which he was driving, hit a tree and his friend was killed. So obviously this is a minefield for an idiot like me who never thinks about what she says. A little while ago, he was showing me this set of knives that are supposedly used for cutting bone and skinning animals. "Pretty cool, right?" he said. "Sure, perfect for a murderer!" I replied, meaning it as a joke, then immediately after the words came out of my mouth I realized what I had said and wished I could drop dead right then and there. Ahhhhhh I feel so so so awful. I'm the worst. I didn't apologize right away either. We just both pretended I didn't say it...
