Lovin' It: If you're a frequent Men's Fitness reader, we're guessing you're probably not a fast-food fanatic. But if you've ever doubted your lifelong fast food abstinence, consider this: Right now, in Iceland, there's a 6-year-old burger and fries—reportedly the last cheeseburger sold in the country in 2009—preserved under glass at the Bus Hostel in Reykyavik. According to the live shot of the meal, which is streamed live for all the world to see, the meal looks a little stale but otherwise completely unchanged. McDonald's explains the lack of decomposition on its site, noting that "most likely...the food has dehydrated before any visible deterioration could occur." [Business Insider]

Our favorite non-playoff bowl name: the Battlefrog Fiesta Bowl, featuring Notre Dame vs. Ohio State. (Hey, we can't all be Dos Equis, official beer sponsor of the CFP.) [ESPN]

Winter Is Coming: New previews of Game of Thrones season 6! On the Internet! In video form! Sure, they're only about two seconds long and buried underneath recaps of HBO's "Best of 2015" footage, but hey, we're not complaining. (And if GoT isn't your thing, then at least there's Sesame Street!)



Do the Dab: When does a dance trend become uncool? Is it when the multimillionaire owner of the Carolina Panthers does it in the locker room after the team's latest win? No? Well then by all means, keep doing the Dab, because Jerry Richardson is all about it.

Reverse Reverse: Though the Saints were on the receiving end of that Panthers victory, they made football history when Saints rookie linebacker Stephone Anthony scooped up a blocked PAT attempt and ran it back for a two-point conversion—the first time that's happened since the rules were changed during the offseason to allow for exactly that play.

If That's What It Takes: A group of 9/11 first responders had trouble finding the final Senate vote to pass the Zadroga Act, which would permanently provide healthcare coverage for the 9/11 responders suffering from illnesses related to their service. So Jon Stewart and FealGood Foundation founder John Feal ambushed Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) beneath the Capitol building and convinced him to muster up the final vote.

Too Fast to See: The Flash will make a cameo appearance in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie, costume designer Michael Wilkinson told the Portuguese-language (Comic-book fandom knows no barriers.) We're assuming the Flash was in the trailer, but presumably too blurry for the camera to capture. []
