Hump-day Reading

Some clips from around the Web for your workday viewing pleasure:

  • Most misleading headline: Can You Get Fit in Six Minutes a Week? (The answer is no such luck; the actual time it takes to do the routine in the article is 14-23 minutes per day, counting rest breaks – not much less than it would take to do a basic conventional workout. But yes, interval training does work to boost metabolism and burn fat, that’s already a well-known fact. (The New York Times)
  • For the thousandth time, eat your frickin’ tomatoes: What manly men eat to stay manly reminds you to take your lycopene and eat more salmon.They apparently don’t have Men’s Health magazine in Canada. (The National Post)

Ziggy: allowed to wear guyliner.

Ziggy: allowed to wear guyliner. You: not so much.

  • I don’t know where to start: Online dating is horrible, in which a 38-year-old man discovers that love has lots of boundaries. Oh, wait – is that Sean McGinn? (The Boston Globe)
  • For the daring: From guyliner to man-scara. Unless you’re Captain Jack Sparrow or Pete Wentz (and maybe even if you’re Pete Wentz) you probably want to steer clear of black raccoon rings, but there are some tips for the more adventurous. (Slice)
  • My eyes! My eyes!! Man Cleavage: Let’s Discuss leaves little to actually discuss (the only acceptable photo in the batch is the one you have to scroll down to see), but completely misses the bigger question – sunglasses stored in the man cleavage: bold statement or the mullet of fashion? (Glamour)
  • Don’t take it from me: Nurturing Self-Confidence from Deepak Chopra’s blog. Pretty much what I’ve said before, but Deepak’s a busy man, and thus far less wordy. Also much too kind to point out that four question marks in a row is not good punctuation. (
  • And finally: Critics Cringe at Ad for Burger King’s Latest Sandwich is the best of marketing and the worst of marketing: getting your ad on Fox News for free (somewhere, Bill O’Reilly suddenly has a hankering for one of those), but might get the entire ad agency caned. (Fox News)
