Have you received this business card?

Luke Burbank, host of the podcast "Too Beautiful to Live," brings us his weekly wrap-up of the week’s awesome and not awesome news:

First, the New York Times blog The 6th Floor compiled a list of books that NY Times staffers have lied about reading.

Then, Lolo Jones, a U.S. Olympic track star talked to Mary Carillo on HBO's Real Sports about her biggest struggle in life -- staying a virgin: "There's virgins out there, and I'm going to let them know. It's the hardest thing that I've ever done in my life. Harder than training for the Olympics, harder than graduating from college, is staying a virgin before marriage. I've been tempted. I've had guys tell me... Hey, you know if you had sex, you'd run faster."

And there's a new trend of trying to pick up girls with 'call me, maybe' business cards.
