How I Learn Woot's Up

Mother's Day coming? Oops. Flowers for mom. Roadside emergency? Gotta have some flares. Laptop speakers not up to par? USB-powered mini-speakers. It's always something. Every day, one can't-miss deal for something you didn't even know you needed. Until you saw it on Woot.

You know you just own too much stuff when you find yourself trolling, just hoping you'll find something else to buy. Warning: this darn site is addictive.

Slate Explainer goes in-depth to explain the story behind today's headlines, with such fascinating articles as "Is a $1 Salary Paid in Installments?", "How To Prosecute a Shoe-Thrower ", and "How exactly will Obama get all his stuff into the White House?"
