Watch It: Mary Roach’s “10 things you didn’t know about orgasms”

In this TED talk, Roach talks about the science behind orgasms. For example, did you know you can have an orgasm when you’re dead? We sure didn’t. It can also cure the hiccups. For more fun facts, check out the video. Heck, it will make for a great icebreaker.

See It: “Rio 2”

For the animated movie fans, go see “Rio 2.” We can’t guarantee it will be as good as “Frozen,” but the crazy colored birds and tropical setting might be worth splurging on a 3-D ticket. In the flick, Blu and Jewel are back with three kids pushing for part of the Amazon to be declared a nature preserve. But a logger has different plans. Sounds like a movie for all our environmentally friendly majors.

Hear It: fun.

“Before Shane Went To Bangkok: Fun. Live In The USA” features six live recordings from the indie pop band’s Most Nights tour. Featured songs include “Some Nights” and “Aim and Ignite” as well as the unreleased song “What The F**k.” If you like fun., you’ll love the band live.
