SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

If you’re not very excited about the prospect of growing old, I’ve got some good news for you. According to a survey, 7 in 10 of us agree that life actually gets better as you age. A survey of 2,000 Americans examined perspectives around aging and found that most agree that in today’s world, there’s a negative bias around aging or the perception of being old (77%). In fact, 6 in 10 said they avoid sharing their age in fear of being “judged”. And social media certainly doesn’t help, with 77% agreeing that social media filters send the wrong message about physical appearances. On the plus side, 75% of respondents to the survey by OnePoll said that age is not something to fight or fear, but an opportunity to live a more fulfilling and emotionally and physically healthy life. And 71% said they have seen areas of their lives improve with age, specifically confidence (49%), sense of self (45%), and relationships with family members (44%). And most people aged 30 and up feel more fulfilled (69%) and satisfied (71%) with their lives today, than when in their 20s.

A James Bond-themed superyacht named 007 has sunk. The 160-foot vessel ran aground off the Greek island of Kythnos on Sept. 2. Five people onboard were rescued by Coast Guard. The luxury yacht, which has a helipad, was seen lying semi-submerged on its side about 49 feet from Kolona Beach. According to a local boat owner, the captain had “some depth problem and he hit the bottom”. The 007, which has 5 cabins, is now the subject of a local investigation. The owner is not known. LINK:


Kim Kardashian has nothing but nice things to say about Pete Davidson about a month after their breakup. The reality star made the cover of Interview Magazine this week and in an interview, she called Davidson “literally such a good person”. Kardashian said, quote: “They don’t really make them like him anymore. I’m excited for what he has coming up”. She didn’t say much more about the breakup, except to hint that she’s not in a rush to find her next romance. When asked what she wants most in life right now, she said: “Maybe a little bit more sleep? Maybe kids that I don’t have to…bribe with Pok√©mon cards…Time?”

Whoopi Goldberg wasted no time on the season premiere of “The View,” hitting back at the racist criticism of HBO’s “House of the Dragon” and Amazon’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.” With the 2 new fantasy series becoming hits, some fans — or wannabe critics — have been claiming the creators were “too woke” in adding diverse characters. Goldberg responded to the discourse, starting with an acknowledgment that the worlds of the fantasy shows “are not real,” and “there are no dragons, there are no hobbits.” But she also asked: “Are you telling me black people can’t be fake people, too? I don’t know if there’s, like, a hobbit club, I don’t know if there are gonna be protests. But people: What is wrong with y’all?” Goldberg’s co-hosts agreed, all chiming in on the topic.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

An eco-friendly form of air conditioning that could dramatically reduce the environmental harm caused by current A/C units has been developed by US scientists. Existing air conditioning is a huge driver of global warming because the refrigerants it uses are thousands of times more potent than carbon dioxide and cause huge amounts of damage when they accidentally leak. The new device works by using solid refrigerants to effectively cool a space, the Harvard scientists say. Unlike gasses, solids won’t leak into the environment from air conditioning units.

Someday, we could be charging our phones and tablets wirelessly through the air, thanks to newly developed technology. South Korean researchers have used infrared laser light to transmit 400mW of light power over distances of up to 30 meters (98 feet). That’s enough juice to charge small sensors, though in time it could be developed to charge larger devices such as smartphones. The technical term for it is ‘distributed laser charging’, and while it’s still early days for the technology, it could also someday make a huge difference in industrial environments where cabling is hard to put together or maintain.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A student newspaper at Australia’s University of Queensland is defending a controversial article that provided shoplifting tips to cash-strapped students. The piece, “The Subtle Art of Shoplifting,” was published in the Semper Floreat on Saturday. In it, the anonymous writer advised readers on “frifting,” or “free shopping.” Frifting is explained as “a legitimate action for the working class to take in ongoing class war.” Tips included wearing a mask and covering identifiable markers like piercings and tattoos. Public officials quickly condemned the article, with Education Minister Christian Rowan saying that encouraging people to commit criminal offenses would lead to anarchy. But editor-in-chief William Kugelman wrote an op-ed saying the paper stands by its “decision to publish the hypothetical safe shoplifting guide” because “Increasingly, people are forced into impoverishment and homelessness, while the ruling class, governments, and corporations, enjoy the fruits of the working class’ stolen labor.”

☞ “Did your parents tell you the black seeds in watermelon would grow a watermelon in your stomach too or are you normal?”

☞ “did your parents tell you that you’d get a cold if you went to sleep with your hair wet or are you normal?”

☞ “Was anybody else raised to believe that if you take a shower during a thunderstorm, you’ll probably die via lightning strike?”

☞ “Did anybody else’s parents every tell them not to swim after eating because of cramps?? Did you know that’s false? Did you know we were raised by liars!?!?”

☞ “Remember when we were kids they used to talk about our “permanent record” LMFAO I was TERRIFIED”
