In Case You Missed It: Seinfeld’s Back, Bikini Hockey League, Bear Invasion and Videos


Another week begins on our blue planet and there’s so much you need to catch up on from the last one. Welcome to In Case You You probably Missed It.

Alan here. Clifford was unable to do this week’s post so I’m filling in at the helm. There’s a lot I want to cover, so in lieu of the usual couple items plus commentary I’m just going to barrage you with news and hope you take something away from one of the stories.

Let’s get started:

The New York Times tackles social kissing. I recently had this issue thrust in my face (literally) when meeting a friend’s girlfriend. What I thought was a close handshake soon turned into an awkward hybrid handshake-double-kiss. She took the handshake about as awkwardly as I did the kiss, so I’m hoping our embarrassment canceled out.
