What’s the absolute saddest song of all time? REM’s 1992 hit ‘Everybody Hurts’, according to a survey of 2,000 adults in the UK. Second is Sinead O’Connor’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ and Eric Clapton’s ‘Tears in Heaven’. Also in the top 5 saddest songs of all time: Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ and ‘Yesterday’ by The Beatles. Some other interesting findings from the poll: 36% choose a sad song when they are feeling nostalgic, 24% play somber music after a breakup, and almost half, surprisingly, believe that a sad song can brighten their day. And just so we don’t wrap this up on a downer, the top 3 happiest songs according to survey respondents are, in order: Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, ‘Dancing Queen’ by ABBA, and ‘Walking on Sunshine’ by Katrina and The Waves.

Incompetent people are often so incompetent that they don’t realize their own incompetence. According to the “Dunning-Kruger effect”, people who are ignorant or unskilled in any area are too inept to notice, so they end up thinking they’re far more competent than they actually are.


There’s a reason Sarah Hyland doesn’t remember filming some episodes of “Modern Family”. She was basically asleep for them. On co-star Julie Bowen’s “Quitters” podcast, Hyland—who played ‘Haley’ on the comedy series’ 11 season run—discussed her second kidney transplant and how her kidney dysplasia caused her to forget filming episodes because she was so tired, and “not able to be awake for eight hours at a time.” Not only was she exhausted, Bowen recalled that Hyland was also in pain.

Paramount has announced it will hold back the Sandra Bullock/Channing Tatum adventure comedy “The Lost City” and the family film “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” from Russia, the latest studio to pull new releases following the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. This news follows 3 different studios announcing their plans to withhold the release of upcoming films in Russia, including Warner Bros. pausing the release of “The Batman,” Disney yanking the Pixar film “Turning Red” and Sony pulling “Morbius.”

Larry David fans will really have to ‘curb their enthusiasm’ now. The 2-part HBO documentary “The Larry David Story,” which “shines a new light on the infamous cynic who remains a singular voice in comedy today,” was scrapped late on Monday, the day before it was slated to premiere. Why? A tweet from the HBO Documentaries Twitter account says: “David has decided he wants to do it in front of an audience. Stay tuned for more info.” The news came 2 weeks after the network announced the documentary, which was supposed to give fans of the 74-year-old funnyman a “peek behind the proverbial curtain”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Maybe, just possibly, we now know exactly what “Stonehenge” is all about. According to an archaeologist, the imposing group of monuments dominating a plain in southwest England were constructed as an ancient time-keeping system. The central axis of the megaliths, constructed an estimated 5,000 years ago, was — and still is — aligned with the sunrise at midsummer and sunset at midwinter. The stones perfectly frame the rising and setting sun when days are at their longest and shortest. It has long been thought the monument was used for ceremonial purposes rather than an accurate way to track the days, months and seasons. But Timothy Darvill, a professor of archaeology at the UK’s Bournemouth University, conducted a study, and concluded that Stonehenge served as a solar calendar. It’s a pretty complex explanation, but suffice to say this guy knows what he’s talking about. He says Stonehenge is “A place where the timing of ceremonies and festivals was connected to the very fabric of the universe and celestial movements in the heavens.”

Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk suffered a broken femur, apparently while skateboarding, but he’s not done yet. He took to Instagram with the news of his injury, posting a photo of his X-ray and a video of himself on crutches, writing: “Yesterday sucked. I broke my elbow 20 years ago and managed to make a full comeback; this recovery for a broken femur will be much harder because of its severity (and my age). But I’m up for the challenge.” Undoubtedly the most famous skateboarder in history, Hawk also has an HBO documentary about his career coming soon, titled, “Until the Wheels Fall Off.” Ironically, he said, the trailer for that documentary was released on Wednesday.

Tinder Swindler” Simon Leviev is charging $20,000 for nightclub appearances following the “success” of the Netflix show about him. He’s entertaining offers from as close as Philly and Boston and as far as Germany and Mexico. Apparently, the 5-figure payday includes requests for bottle service at the club, as well a private jet, a 5-star hotel suite, black SUV car service and 2 full-time security guards.

Simon Leviev, the so-called “Tinder Swindler,” is being sued by the diamond-rich family he claimed to be a part of as he allegedly bilked millions from young women he met on the dating app. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the Leviev family, whose patriarch, Lev Leviev, is a billionaire diamond magnate. Simon Leviev — whose story was recently documented in the Netflix true-crime doc “The Tinder Swindler” — spent nearly a decade traipsing around Europe and posing as an heir to the Leviev diamond fortune, while convincing women to give him money he promised he would pay back, but never did.
