* Life advice from Neil Gaiman: Make good art.

* Too ignorant to know it can’t be done: Teenager reportedly finds solution to 350-year-old math problem.

* From the too-good-to-check files: McSweeney’s interviews a safecracker.

Q: Do you ever look inside?

A: I NEVER look. It’s none of my business. Involving yourself in people’s private affairs can lead to being subpoenaed in a lawsuit or criminal trial. Besides, I’d prefer not knowing about a client’s drug stash, personal porn, or belly button lint collection.

When I’m done I gather my tools and walk to the truck to write my invoice. Sometimes I’m out of the room before they open it. I don’t want to be nearby if there is a booby trap.

* Foundation and Krugman, in Wired.

* And Mother Jones takes on America’s growing tax problem.
