With a couple of six-plus hour trips coming up in the next few months, I’ve been taking notes on how to survive long flights. It’s been a few years since I’ve been on an international trip, and while I was able to nap for more or less the whole trip in university and high school, I have a sneaking suspicion sleep won’t come as easily this time.


My favourite thing about writing about food on the internet is all the shouting. Certain foods court it - pizza, eggs, and ribs all have very rabid fans (and, in the case of eggs, haters) with lots of opinions - but burgers seem to be a particularly contentious part of western cuisine.


There was always a pink blanket in the trunk of the family car when I was growing up. It took up a lot of space but could never be removed, because what if the car broke down in winter? We would all have to huddle under the blanket while we waited for help. Driving without a blanket is just asking for trouble.


Like medical advice or the answers to HQ trivia questions, you need to be careful where you get your legal advice. Twenty-odd years into the internet, people still make terrible decisions based on a faulty understanding of the law. We asked several lawyers to share the one thing they wish everyone knew about the legal profession, or how to get a lawyer. Here are their answers.

It seems the first rule of Crossfit club is that you must never shut up about Crossfit club, and on the flip side, the sport (routine? Discipline? Hobby?) has its share of haters. So let's take a minute to cut through that for anyone who's intrigued but isn't sure what they would be getting into and whether it's worthwhile.


Ah, summertime - when heat, hormones and boredom lead to bad decisions. Last July, four teens were arrested for allegedly having sex on a beach in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The sun was out, and the shore was filled with families not expecting, um, that type of view. Onlookers called the public display "disgusting", according to news reports.


You've probably got some downtime during the holidays, whether you're taking a few days off from work (you should), or enjoying your winter break after studying for exams (you didn't). With 2018 on the way, you can start the new year on the right foot by prepping your resolution plans beforehand. Of course, resolutions come in all shapes and sizes, so the real question is this: how are you getting a head start on yours?


Recently, we asked people who worked in the food service industry if there were any insights about their job they wished restaurant patrons would know, and we got some great answers. Whether it's about tipping, food orders, or how you should and shouldn't treat the wait staff, these are the secrets to being a good customer.
