You're probably rolling your eyes at this point when you hear the term FOMO (fear of missing out), but bear with me because it turns out that FOMO isn't about fear of missing information.

In August 2015, I boldly proclaimed that I would become a "deadlifting badarse". In my own world, that meant being able to deadlift 136kg. I struggled with 93kg at the time, so 136kg felt like a dream goal, the kind a four-year-old might blurt out. Then, last week I finally deadlifted 125kg for the first time!
Serena Williams may have been pregnant when she won the Australian Open, so the New Scientist asked whether her pregnancy may have helped — as if her previous 38 major titles were flukes.

Med School Insiders has a video on getting enough sleep while dealing with the very demanding schedule of someone early in their medical career.

Dear Lifehacker, I bought some pork rolls and fried pork cakes from an Asian grocery shop in April. I did not check the expired date until my family finished the first fried pork cake. I then saw on the label "use by 24FEB2017". I called the shop today and the staff there did not say sorry to me but spoke to me as if that is not their responsibility.
