From across the coffee shop, I noticed a gentleman walking in with a computer. Not a laptop, mind you. With both hands, he carried a full-on desktop, monitor and console included. Surely he's not ...

We've all seen those transformation photos of people going from pufferfish-like bellies to enviously defined abs. You may have mused, "I wish I could get to that 'After' picture, too."

Life gets pretty exhausting if you're always afraid of getting dirty. I try to remember this mantra when I fly because aeroplanes are so freaking filthy. Research from the University of Victoria suggests we're 100 times more likely to catch a cold from air travel than "normal daily ground level experience". Here's how to stay relatively sanitary (and sane) on planes.

Obviously, if you break your leg, you're going to head straight to the nearest emergency room. But it's harder to know what to do when you've rolled your ankle, or have a nagging pain in your knee. Will you be fine with rest and ice, or do you need to get it checked out?

Pullover hoodies are fine, but sometimes what you really want is one that zips up -- especially if you want to be able to take it off without messing up your hair. Enter this simple sewing project: Just two seams and one cut. Best of all, the picture or writing on the front stays totally visible.
