It used to be we all had to wait for our high school reunions to make people jealous. And even then there was so much pressure. You wouldn't dare bother showing up without being skinny, dating (or hiring) a sexy boyfriend and having created Post-Its. Thank God they invented Instagram. Now you don't need anything but an iPhone to make others feel bad about their own lives - and you can do so all year round . Here are some tips on how to make your acquaintances want to give up and move somewhere Verizon doesn't service.

Lunch has always been my favorite part of the work day. I know that isn't a very controversial stand to take - I might as well declare that the Chicago winters get pretty bad or Hugh Jackman should have taken his shirt off more in "Real Steel" - but, nonetheless, I stand by it. Lunch is awesome. Lunch is the breath that breaks up my day. It's a chance to escape my desk and clear my head. Just when my eyeballs feel like they're going to melt from overexposure to spreadsheets and Google Docs, in swoops my lunch break, like Batman after a call from Commissioner Gordon, here to save the day. I grab my...

If your relationship is not going in the right direction, perhaps it's because you're not commuting in the right direction. A new study by Hong Kong researchers who conducted surveys in the U.S. and Hong Kong found that couples' marital satisfaction is greater when they travel to work in the same direction, no matter what time the partners leave for work. A couple of Chicago couples told RedEye they go out of their way to change their commute so they can have more time with their spouses because they like having someone to talk...

It takes a combination of skill and experience to make it as a messenger in Chicago. It takes determination to be the best in the world. Nico Deportago-Cabrera has it all. The 28-year-old bike messenger from Bucktown has consistently placed in the Top 20 in both national and international championships for bike messengers since 2009. Although this year he sat out the Cycle Messenger World Championships, which were held in Chicago from Aug. 2-5, he said the winner of that event should consider himself the best in the world.

Warning: If you encounter me before 9 a.m. on a weekday, you will most likely get a cranky, snarky Jason. See, I have PTMCD: Post-Traumatic Morning Conversation Disorder. Not too long ago, I ran into a "friend" whom we'll call Tuck who loudly told me all about the hemorrhoid surgery he had just had the week prior. In great detail. At 8 o'clock in the morning. I had to listen to Tuck go on and on and on about the surgery and the aftereffects. This would have been barely tolerable on a drunken Saturday at a bar, but before work and before coffee?

His character, Mikael Blomkvist, has been strapped into a device and is being flung about the room as if he were a Cirque du Soleil performer with a plastic bag over his head. According to "Tattoo" director David Fincher, things went very wrong. Although Craig had a small metal device in his hand to pop the plastic bag in case it became too hard for him to breathe, Fincher and the crew didn't realize that he was having difficulty until...
