People who are born in the fall will live a few months longer than the rest of us. A study looked at more than 1 million people over the age of 55 in Austria, Denmark and Australia. They found that people born from October to December tended to outlive people born in the spring by about 3 to 6 months. The same held true for people born in Australia when the researchers factored in the seasons for the Southern Hemisphere. Scientists credit an abundance of food in the traditional fall harvest months for giving babies born then a nutritional head start.


Warner Bros. is activating the power of the Wonder Twins. They’re a pair of alien siblings named ‘Zan’ and ‘Jayna’ who were introduced to a generation of TV viewers on Hanna-Barbera’s “The All-New Super Friends Hour” as young companions to adult heroes such as ‘Superman’, ‘Batman’ and ‘Wonder Woman’. The duo then appeared in the “Super Friends” comic and, over time, became incorporated into the larger DC universe. Now, Warner has hired Adam Sztykiel, who worked on the upcoming “Black Adam”, to write and direct an original live-action feature for HBO Max, based on the characters. The twins were known for their catchphrase, “Wonder Twin power, activate!”

Dateline.... GREECE

A robber stepped into a bank in Greece and demanded money. He was serious: he showed a gun, and even had a bag ready for the cash. He handed it over to the teller. Not the bag — he accidentally handed the teller his gun. When the robber realized his mistake he grabbed for the gun, but in the moment of confusion the teller was able to slam his security panel closed, cutting the robber off. The empty-handed criminal was forced to flee on a bicycle stolen from a bank employee.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

An Indian couple are planning the country’s first-ever “metaverse marriage”. As COVID-19 forces couples to cancel or downsize their traditionally large-scale weddings, Dinesh Sivakumar Padmavathi and Janaganandhini Ramaswamy have found a venue unaffected by the current limit of 100 attendees – the metaverse — where guests can attend via phones, tablets or laptops. And we’re not talking about a simple video feed here. Metaverse is a term used to describe virtual 3D environments where users can gather and interact. Because the pair are self-professed “Potterheads,” or fans of Harry Potter, the groom worked with start-up platform TardiVerse to create a castle-like digital space inspired by Hogwarts. The legal ceremony will still take place physically in front of close friends and relatives, but afterwards, the couple will log on to join their reception, which cost about US $2,000 to design, develop and host. The one-hour event will see the newlyweds virtually address their guests, who will be able to explore the castle and customize their avatars’ appearance and outfit. Another advantage to having a digital celebration: They’ve been able to involve Ramaswamy’s late father in the proceedings by creating an avatar of him, so he can bless the couple.
