It's August, you're reading something, what is it?


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I couldn't sleep last night because I started reading The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. It's about the Ebola virus and details - graphically - instances of outbreaks and the scientists working on a vaccine.

I'm not usually so freaked out by things but this has scared the shit out of me. I had to force myself to put it down at 2am and watch some Netflix to try and calm down. It's non-fiction, to be clear, but written in a really gripping way.
