Does anyone have a piece of longform journalism that really stuck with you for a long time after you read it, particularly for being a well-written narrative as opposed to something shocking?

I'm looking for examples of really good non-book-length nonfiction storytelling.

@eleanorkonik I suppose it depends on if you consider trying to test the limits of TGI Friday's Endless Appetizer's promotion "shocking," but this and almost anything Caity Weaver writes are great gawker.com/my-14-hour-search-f

@srol I don't mind if the article involves shocking information, just, I'm looking for stuff written in a genuinely skilled and compelling way moreso than "I remember this because it's about a crane that fell in love with a human!" (which I remember more because of the wtfery of it all)
