Most of us get “hangry” at some point just about every day, according to a survey. A recent survey of 2,000 US adults found three-quarters of people admit their hunger gets the best of them 5 times a week, resulting in an astounding 21,000+ “hangry” outbursts over the course of their lifetimes. People said they most commonly experience “hanger” as feelings of anger (of course), grumpiness, impatience and fatigue. The OnePoll survey found that the most common reasons for people’s hunger-related irritability are: mealtime delays (44%), a busy work schedule (37%), never knowing what to cook (32%) and not having time to grocery shop (29%). Adults with small kids are the “hangriest” of all — 42% of those with kids 4 and under identify as frequently “hangry.” And what do we do to satisfy our food cravings? 58% have resorted to eating their least favorite food, 42% have eaten their partner or roommate’s leftovers, 39% have eaten their kids’ snacks, and 28% say they have actually eaten discarded food.

A quarter of people would rather shave their head than contact customer support — and that’s not the only extreme some are willing to go to. A survey of 2,000 Americans also found that instead of going through the tedious process of contacting a customer service agent, pleading their case, and trying to come to some sort of resolution, respondents would rather do their taxes (30%), go to the dentist (28%) or go to the DMV (25%). 22% said they’d even choose a night in jail over dealing with a customer support rep.


What is Jeopardy!’s fate? Answer: Expanding into the future. The long running ABC game show is looking ahead to more questions and answers as it plans to expand the franchise. Executive producer Michael Davies recently shared some possibilities, including potentially creating a pro-league version featuring the top Jeopardy! players. He said he has also considered the idea of a spin-off dedicated to pop culture trivia. He told The New York Times about his vision, saying, “It seemed ridiculous to me that we have this sport where every single year we take all of our best players — we take our LeBrons and our Dwyanes — and we switch them all out.” Davies said he would want the master league to air live, though he admitted, the thought of that makes his staff nervous.

Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik are still sharing the title “host of Jeopardy,” but they have reportedly only actually met twice. The 2 traded off hosting the game show every week or 2 last season, and will apparently do the same for the rest of Season 39. But according to a report by Entertainment Tonight, they’ve never actually been on the set together. Joking with an interviewer, Jennings said: “It’s like Superman and Clark Kent. We’re never in the same (room).” He was discussing his cameo on Bialik’s sitcom “Call Me Kat”, and revealed that that the day he shot it, it was only the second time he had ever met Bialik in person. Before that, the 2 did a promotional photoshoot for Jeopardy together.

Saturday Night Live” poked some fun at its own expense during its Season 48 opening skit. Host Miles Teller portrayed former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, alongside cast member Andrew Dismukes as Eli Manning in the cold opening. They provided commentary for the show’s opening skit, set in Mar-a-Lago, a spoof of the duo’s “Manningcast” on Monday Night Football. James Austin Johnson reprised his impression of former president Donald Trump, and Teller, as Peyton Manning said: “Oh, good. Trump sketch. Way to mix it up!”, making fun of the politically motivated direction the show has taken in past seasons. After also making fun of the recent exit of some of the show’s most beloved cast members, Teller and Dismukes then broke down the “stats,” noting 14 attempted jokes with only “one mild laugh and two chuckles.”

Bad news, Moms and Dads: If you’re feeling the effects of inflation, your kids are, too. Financial experts say that because of increasing prices, children and teens should be seeing hikes in their allowances. Stats show the average American kids enjoys a weekly stipend of $12.76 a week, with older teens averaging closer to $25. But if you decide not to give kids your kids a raise, it can be a teachable moment. Houston financial planner Jason McGarraugh says he’s using this inflationary period to teach his 10 and 12-year-old daughters how to make choices with the money they do have, and show them that “Just because prices have gone up, it doesn’t mean you will get an automatic raise.” He says both are making adjustments to their spending habits.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A company is using NASA spacesuit technology to make clothing to reduce hot flashes in women. That’s right — the same self-regulating materials that keep astronauts from exploding in space are now being used in clothing to reduce effects of menopause. London-based Fifty One Apparel has come up with the novel approach to making women feel more comfortable in their all-purpose fashions made for lounging, the gym, the office – plus intergalactic travel if needed. The company, named after the average age people experience menopause, turns high-tech fabric that was first designed to help keep astronauts comfortable inside their spacesuits into clothing that “put the freeze on hot flushes,” according to the Fifty One Apparel website. Instead of wicking away sweat, the clothes actually keep your body temperature stable and control the production of moisture before it starts, using technology first incorporated by NASA into spacesuit gloves.

Soaring grocery prices mean people everywhere are looking for ways to save money. Here are some strategies to save on your grocery bill…

Buy seasonal products: These days, that could mean cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, carrots, parsnips, winter squash, beets, apples and pears.

Buy frozen: Frozen options of fresh, off-season produce can be significantly cheaper than imported vegetables and fruit.

Trade meat for beans: Beans and lentils are significantly cheaper than meat, poultry and fish. They’re also incredibly nutritious. You can also add tofu to your weekly menu.

Replace salmon with sardines: If you rely on salmon for omega-3s, try canned sardines. By weight, sardines are half the price of canned or fresh salmon. Eat sardines on whole grain crackers, serve them on a bed of veggies, sauté them in olive oil and garlic, or add them to pasta.

Add sunflower seeds: They’re way cheaper than nuts and pumpkin seeds, and are an excellent source of vitamin E, an antioxidant needed for healthy immune and brain function.

Reduce food waste: Create a weekly meal plan, so you only buy what you need. Freeze leftovers, and use vegetable peels and scraps to make stocks and broths.
