A baby is born in the United States every 8 seconds. Worldwide, 3 babies are born every second. More babies are born on a Tuesday than any other day – except if Tuesday falls on Christmas day because fewer babies are born on Christmas day making a Christmas birthday a very special birthday indeed. Usually, on average about 220 000 babies are born each day but on Christmas day only about 172 000 babies are born. But the Christmas holiday is special for another reason: most babies are born in August and September meaning that more babies are conceived during Christmas season than any time.


Amazon Studios has confirmed it has secured global rights to the “Warhammer 40,000” game for “Man of Steel” Henry Cavill to star in and executive produce the franchise. The agreement encompasses rights to the universe across TV series, film and likely games and animation. Warhammer 40,000 is a miniature wargame produced by Games Workshop in which players enact battles using miniature models of warriors and fighting vehicles. It is set in the distant future, where a stagnant human civilization is threatened by hostile aliens and supernatural creatures. Cavill just exited his DC role as ‘Superman’ and left his starring role in Netflix’s “The Witcher” after 3 seasons.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

To some, there’s no greater inconvenience than a flight cancellation. But rather than sulk about their sudden change of plans, an enterprising group of passengers whose trip from Orlando FL to Knoxville, TN was shelved, instead decided to rent a van together and hit the road. 13 of them made the 650-mile (1050km) trip together, sharing stories and documenting their journey on TikTok. The passengers spanned ages and backgrounds: One was a teen visiting a college with her parents, another with a critical appointment in a custody case; a minister, a farmer who only spoke Spanish; an influencer, and a recent college grad. Although more than a few bathroom stops added to the trip’s 9½ hours of driving time, they all made it to their destination safe and sound. And as one passenger said, noting that everyone got along brilliantly: “I feel like this situation for me specifically…restored my trust and humanity…There’s definitely hope for people…they can be good.” LINK:

In Toulon, France an 88 year-old showed up at the hospital and reported that he had inserted an object up his rectum and couldn’t remove it. No problem, let’s take you into x-ray and take a look. Hold on…that looks like…an artillery shell?! Not taking any chances the hospital was evacuated and incoming patients diverted until the situation could be further assessed. The man told them it was indeed a World War I artillery shell, eight inches long and two inches wide, that he had inserted up his backside for “sexual pleasure.” The man was taken into surgery where the shell was removed without incident. Shell-shocked doctors and bomb disposal experts said that, while it was possible, it was unlikely the shell would have exploded inside the man.
