Traffic Jam: The Week Ending January 20

This week, the VN editors give you the best of the internet—four links (and one tweet!) at a time.

1. Raise your hand if you like pie. Now, raise your other hand if you like cinnamon rolls. Now wave your arms back and forth saying “heyyy.” (That was fun, wasn’t it?) Now, take a look at this. Are your arms still up? Ours too.

2. James McWilliams penned a must-read over on called “Agnostic Carnivores and Global Warming: Why Enviros Go After Coal and Not Cows.” Seriously, folks, must-read.

3. SOPA and PIPA were at the tip of everyone’s tongue this week; this roundup of ways the web protested the legislation is a cool way to check out the community fighting against censorship.

4. Have you checked out our Pinterest page yet? If not, head on over there for some Green Tequila Enchiladas, Raspberry Truffle Brownies, and the cutest baby goat you’ve ever seen.

5. And for our Tweet of the Week, some health advice we can really, really get behind: “Giggling for 15 seconds adds 2 days to your life span @lovesocial”—@hellogiggles
