  • This baby panda video is insanely cute and funny. It’s hard getting work done with the help of baby pandas!
  • This article on the cult of wellness touches on the same topics I did in my Lyme Disease post on fake medicine and real medicine. This article though speaks about the wellness move in general, from oils to Fitbits.
