Ladies, have you ever felt like some days you just looked better than others? A survey taken of women over 18 across the U.S. revealed that whether you live in cities or rural areas, and despite your ages, women feel their ugliest on Mondays, late at night, and early in the morning. Women also don’t feel so hot about themselves on Sundays, when they’re sick, sweating, stressed, angry, lonely, or depressed. Women feel the best about their appearances for a mere three hours a day — between the hours of noon and 3 PM. They also don’t feel so bad about themselves on Thursdays.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Corrections officers subjected inmates to “inhuman” discipline by blasting the children’s song “Baby Shark” on a loop at an Oklahoma jail. In a misdemeanor criminal information filed, two former Oklahoma County detection officers and their supervisor were each charged with conspiracy and multiple counts of cruelty to an inmate. As alleged in court records, former jailers Christian Miles and Gregory Butler, both 21-years-old, and Christopher Hendershott, a 50-year-old lieutenant, abused four male inmates by handcuffing them to a wall “in a standing position for extended periods of time while at the same time playing music loudly.” The alleged cruelty occurred late last year at the county lockup in Oklahoma City. The court affidavit states that inmates and staff told investigators that the blasting of “Baby Shark” was intended to put “undue emotional stress on the inmates who were most likely already suffering from physical stressors.” (

Give me the f*****g Wi-Fi before you get arrested, and your mom 'cause I live here and it's illegal.” “You want me to try that way, or you want your dog to come dead?' she asks. 'I have ways in, and your dog won't be breathing tomorrow. You have two seconds to give me the Wi-Fi. I need the Wi-Fi!” The police were eventually called and reportedly broke up the spat. (
