We're a team! Team four eyes, that is. 

I was in London for the launch of our UK sister site the beginning part of this week and Emily was sending around ideas for topics people could potentially post about and, if you are interested, here are some of the topics our wonderful contributors didn't cover (a reject list or a link round-up, whatever you want to call it). Which would you like to have seen us cover here? Which are you glad people didn't bother with? Which do you have a take on and what is that take? Also: Have weekends!
