Brainstorming ideas in a 3x3x3 prewrite for an upcoming punk-themed contest.

I have all these tabs everywhere, New Yorker articles I can't access, places I've yet to see. So I wanted to clump them all up for future reference. Also, I'm having a rough one with my family today, and listing is always calming. 10 Wikipedia Articles Mariana Trench Geomagnetic Reversal Challenger Deep KGB Nationalism Mass Hysteria Apocalypticism … Continue reading 25 Articles to Explore
