Off topic: Fist-bumping, tears closeup, awkward signs, expensive wine, tickling oneself

“Perhaps our patients will appreciate our attention not only to their health but also to hipness” — on fist-bumping vs. shaking hands. Induced by grief, onions and more, microscopic details of tears. “Do not go explosive outdoors” and other awkward signs generated by Automatic Caution Door. What a $476,280-per case/$39,690-per bottle/$6,615-per-glass wine tastes like. And again: You can’t tickle yourself.
