Happy hump day, you guys. I’d just like to say that I disagree with the take that arguing about a burger is trash, as is my right. Personally, I think burgers are the one food that everyone—save the veg crowd—has an opinion about, which make them the perfect food to make an argument over. I can’t go to New Haven and argue about who makes the best avocado toast—because avocado toast isn’t this common denominator of a food like the classic, all-American cheeseburger. Same goes for pizza, the best of which (IMO) has got to be London’s Homeslice. Don’t @ me.
Anyway, we can all agree to disagree. And staff writer Miles Klee’s argument that burger takes are lame is hilarious, so even if you side with me, I suggest you read it. Here’s everything else that was awesome today…

How bad is checking your phone, taking a selfie or doing anything for an extended period of time between sets? If you have any interest in building muscle, it’s real bad. According to Jonathan Jordan, a personal trainer, nutrition coach, massage therapist and fitness blogger, resting too long between sets means that you’re not breaking down the muscle adequately to cause hypertrophy, which in regular-guy terms means you’re not tricking your muscles into growing. So how much time should you spend between sets? That depends entirely on how much weight you’re putting up.
Condoms: Just Once
Last week, the Centers for Disease Control was forced to tweet out a not-so-friendly reminder that condoms are single-use only:
Now, if you’re like us, you’ve probably got some questions:
- Who are the degenerates reusing condoms?!?
- How does one even reuse a condom?!?
- What, uh, are the risks of reusing a condom, anyways?
My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
What’s the proper way to talk about our exes when we’re dating someone new? It’s not like we can avoid the topic of an ex, and trying to do so won’t win you any points, as columnist merritt k points out. Maybe the best way to explain what to do then is to explain what not to do.
