1. Lampoon

Who woulda thunk it. The Official National Lampoon Stereo Test and Demonstration Record , posted on Youtube. It actually has some real tests, but mainly it is parody of audiophile practice and neuroses. On Side One there are various tests. If your system fails, then go to Side Two and play the Punishment track. The Phase test has male and female voices on left and right.--they start arguing with each other. Highly recommended. [Thanks to Mark Fishman for the link].

2. Covid

An interesting study recently investigated the relationship between exercise and Covid infections. They found that as little as 10 minutes of exercise showed measured benefits as far as severe Covid symptoms. What is interesting is that there are people out there who get less than 11 minutes of exercise a week.
