• You know that scene in Sex and the City, when Carrie reveals that she finally (finally!) went number two at Big’s house?

• So we all know kale has gotten super popular over the past few years — but why? One woman set out to figure it out and the story is … strange. Like, Netflix-documentary-worthy strange. [MindBodyGreen[3]]

• This is how far Adonis ran in the movie Creed — you know, just in case you were wondering. Do we see an Adonis 7-Miler, á la the Rocky 50K, in our future? [Ticket[5]]
