2. Hug your bus driver! A study of 214,000 western Pennsylvanians — and reported by The Atlantic — found public transit to be the job sector with the highest incidence of depression.

4. It was a bad year for Philadelphia sports, but a good one for sports GIFs. As 2014 comes to a close, Philly Mag rounds up this year's best.
