Holy shit.

OK Go is so fucking inspiring it hurts. They are the yard stick of having fun with what the human mind is capable of doing.

Okay, I’m in. I think I can get to Louisville that night. Seriously, tickets are $15?!

Anthem has this “health assessment” where you get a score for how healthy you are, and it gives you tips to improve your health. 

The average score for my age group is a 76. Despite exercising regularly and eating better (than I used to), I have a THIRTY-NINE. 

At the end, the “helpful advice” it gives me is to stop having depression.
