Wine
Apparently even wines can be considered "hipster," including any kind of sauvignon blanc or wines from Beaujolais and Muscadet. [WSJ]

Obesity
A recent poll found that while Americans blame watching TV/computers/movies and cheap fast food for obesity, 60 percent of those surveyed oppose taxes on unhealthy food. And 75 percent are against bans on unhealthy foods. [NPR]

Crime
A Subway worker started a fight after a man tried to order a Philly cheesesteak with American cheese, onions, and ketchup. The problem? Subway doesn't have ketchup. Also, who puts ketchup on a Philly cheesesteak? [WFTV]
