• Water: vital to keeping us all alive and healthy, and not cranky on a hot afternoon. But do you really need a zillion different water options when most of it all tastes the same? The folks at Ray's & Stark's Bar in Los Angeles think so, which is why they're debuting a 45-page water menu next week. Let me say that again: a 45-page water menu. The menu splits up waters based on country of origin. Looking for a pricy foreign gulp? Try a $30 bottle of Acqua Panna from Italy. Insist on going for "made in the USA"? How about a $40 bottle "Beverly Hills 90H20"? Go ahead, we'll just laugh in your face. [Source]

• Keep your hair under lock and key (pun most definitely intended). Women in Maracaibo, Venezuela, are reportedly fearing that hair thieves, known as piranhas, will steal their locks. The piranhas hold up the women at gunpoint, tell them to tie their hair in a pony tail and then snip it off, presumably to sell it to hair salons to be made into extensions. I guess beauty really does pay. [Source]

• Grapes now taste like cotton candy. Well, at least some grapes do. A California company combined two grape species and developed a grape that mimics the flavor of the light, airy, sugary treat. "It's like there's nothing to stop the sweetness. It just lingers on your tongue," said Chef Spencer Gray. Talk about grapes of wrath. [Source]

•Kale: Live it, love it, eat the crap out of it, because it's really, really, good for you. It has tons of vitamin A and vitamin C, and is a great source of calcium. Plus, its dark, leafy leaves are omega-fatty acid-rich. Who knew? [Source]

• You spritz and spray, but the geniuses over at See by Chloe are betting that you're gonna want to paint your fragrance on. That's why they've designed their new bottle with a brush application. See by Chloe Paint A Scent will be available, officially, in September. [Source]
