Let’s be wrong on the strongest muscle

5 year old boy in hoodie showing tongueWhat this article taught me – for starters, there are some people called the “Tongue Experts”!

And that the most versatile muscle of our body, the tongue, is just versatile, and not the strongest muscle. It also taught me that my tongue is similar to an octopus’ tentacles. That’s disgusting, for sure. For many such shocking info (and feelings of disgust) I picked this article for you. You gotta read it!

Fact or Fiction? The Tongue Is the Strongest Muscle in the Body

Citizen Alert!

It was only last week that we brought out an infographic on cops and their fitness in routine. The timing of this report couldn’t have been any better. But what surprised us more was the proportion of offices who were overweight. It’s high time we realized importance of healthy diet in our life.

Time for some heavy sh!t

Do you believe in presenting your virginity as a wedding gift to your life mate? Most of you don’t. It’s not some mutual fund anyway!

It’s every runner’s story

The Oatmeal brings this journey of becoming a runner, and running. He begins the story from explaining “hitting the wall” and calling it a “blerch” comparing it to a bird, to a sound, to a feeling and then takes you on the bumpy ride we call running. The story ends with explaining “Runner’s high” and trust me, when you read it, you’ll get a “Reader’s high”!!

The terrible & wonderful reasons why I run long distances

Stay tuned for more interesting stories coming on next Wednesday. 🙂
