An angel headed hipster who loves cowboy boots, sun dresses, tattoos, nerds, coffee, reading, Chicago, knitting, people watching, listening to NPR, bike riding, and speaking French. Not all at the same time though.

A new study finds that individuals who are least sensitive to bitter compounds consume significantly more vegetables compared with those who are most sensitive.

The Jeweled Skeletons were originally found in catacombs beneath Rome in 1578, and distributed as replacements under the belief they were Christian martyrs to churches that had lost their saint relics in the Reformation. However, for most, their identities were not known. The receiving churches then spent years covering the revered skeletal strangers with jewels and golden clothing, even filling their eye sockets and sometimes adorning their teeth with finery. Yet when the Enlightenment came around they became a little embarrassing for the sheer amount of money and excess they represented, and many were hidden away or disappeared.
