FROM THE EDITORS 
Here's What's Buzzing Around The Office:
1
The average millennial will take more than 25,000 selfies in his or her lifetime. To help you find the best shots, researchers at MIT developed a special algorithm. Get your duck face ready and we’ll tell you how they did it.
 
2
When a dentist pulls a tooth, where does it go? It’s not as simple as tossing an old molar into the trash. In fact, the fillings in your teeth can be recycled to help make fluorescent light bulbs!
 
3
According to a new study, people have trouble identifying their own toes when they close their eyes. In other words, we finally have proof that the nursery rhyme “This Little Piggy” is about crippling existential dread.
 
4
Speaking of toes, the good people at Netflix have developed high-tech socks that can detect when you’ve fallen asleep. Once you nod off, the socks pause any shows playing on Netflix. Best of all? You can make them yourself.
 
5
If bedtime stories are more your style, cozy ‘round the Yule Log and listen to Reading Rainbow’s LeVar Burton read “Twas the Night Before Christmas" here. 
 
6
Did you know St. Paul, Minnesota was originally called “Pig’s Eye?” Or that Pierre, South Dakota was once named for bear ears? Find out how all 50 state capitals got their names. (And learn one dirty secret about Des Moines.)
