According to an Arizona microbiologist, we’re not doing a good enough job washing our work coffee mugs at work.
Reports Charles Gerba, Ph.D.: “Around 90 percent of most office mugs harbor dangerous germs, and 20 percent of those carry fecal bacteria.”
Pretty gross! Anyway, his pro tip is just to take your mugs home on the daily to give them a proper scrubbing.
Something else we’re not doing a good enough job of is finding out what is going on around town on any given Tuesday.
Pretty sad! Anyway, our pro tip is just to keep on scrolling. — Cory Graves

Carrie Underwood at American Airlines Center
Jesus took the wheel and drove Carrie Underwood to Dallas for this “storyteller” show, and they left a path of smashed cars in their wake. But, hey, that’s just what happens when you’re a vengeful ex-girlfriend stereotype! By the way, do remember when American Idol winners used to reach a moderate level of success? Me and Underwood, too. — Chelsesa Upton
Sakura Killers at Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson)
Ninjas aren’t afriad of anything — save for maybe the flu. The malady can bring down even the stealthiest and most well-trained among us. That’s more or less the main idea behind the plot of this ’80s b-movie. — CG
