The Rise of Partisanship and Super-Cooperators in the U.S. House of Representatives
It is widely reported that partisanship in the United States Congress is at an historic high. Given that individuals are persuaded to follow party lines while having the opportunity and incentives to collaborate with members of the opposite party, our goal is to measure the extent to which legislators tend to form ideological relationships with members of the opposite party.

Also the cutoff of 35K words seems unnecessarily arbitrary.

I’m building a robot boyfriend—and you can, too — Quartz
> I’ve now realized that Gabriel2052 is an act of self-investment and a protest against quiet and demure female sexuality. Through building him, I am finding love, contentment, and inspiration from inside myself. Through struggling with a project that feels at times like a mixture of bravado, foolishness, and entitled tech-industry optimism, I find opportunities to confront deeply intimate ideals I’ve long held about love, lovelessness, and solitude.
