THIS just might explain why everyone’s obsessed with true crime stories these days: Coltan Scrivner, a research scientist at Recreational Fear Lab — and an expert in “morbid curiosity”, says that watching true crime shows may help prepare you if you find yourself in a similar situation. He says there’s an almost primal reason people are endlessly fascinated by the subject. In fact, our interest in finding out more about dangerous people likely began when humans began using language – and started using proactive aggression to protect themselves. According to him, true crime stories “can have a learning component…or at least a perceived learning component. We feel like we’re more prepared in these kinds of situations.”

Are websites on their way out? A survey finds that the average person believes websites will become obsolete in the next decade. Seven in 10 US adults believes that apps are gradually replacing websites – and more than 1 in 4 believe they could go a full year without using a standard computer browser. In fact, 46% have even done a full day’s work from their smartphone.

It was a Marky Markdown. Mark Wahlberg has sold his Beverly Hills mansion for $55 million — $32.5 million less than its initial listing of $87.5 million last April. The sprawling 30,500-square-foot home features 12 bedrooms and 20 bathrooms on 6 acres in an exclusive gated community. The “Ted” star took the property off the market in October before re-listing it in November at $79.5 million. The buyer has not been identified. Wahlberg purchased the land in 2009 for a measly $8.25 million, putting in at least 5 years of renovation efforts. He and his family have relocated to the Las Vegas area.

The haunting theme song of “The White Lotus,” which has become an unexpected viral sensation in night clubs, now has an official dance remix. Friday, Dutch DJ Ti√ęsto dropped his EDM remix of ‘Renaissance’, the theme song of HBO’s hit show, on digital and streaming platforms. The Grammy-award winner, who has been a fan of the Mike White-created series since season one, has recently been playing his spin on the theme during performances, and says fans “absolutely love it”.

Is there anything he CAN’T do? The Terry Fox Foundation has announced that Ryan Reynolds has designed the official shirt for this year’s Terry Fox run, honoring one of Canada’s most inspirational figures – and the response has been “overwhelming.” Reynolds posted a photo of himself wearing the shirt and alluding to his involvement with this year’s fundraiser for cancer research, writing: “I’ve been taking part in the Terry Fox Run since second grade and can’t think of a more enduring and lovely legacy for one person.” After a flood of people asked how they could get the shirt themselves, the charity announced that Reynolds’ design will be available to registrants for the annual run on April 12 – the 43rd anniversary of the start of the Marathon of Hope.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by BetterCreditCards.com

Elvis is the king — of making foster cats feel purrfectly at home. Nine years ago, Beverly Pack, a volunteer with Open Arms Animal Shelter in Louisa KY, took in Elvis, his sister Priscilla, and other kittens in their litter. When she learned that Elvis and Priscilla both have cerebellar hypoplasia, also known as “wobbly cat syndrome,” she decided to adopt them. This condition affects their balance and motor skills, but it doesn’t stop Elvis from fully embracing every new foster kitten that comes to their house. Since 2013, Pack has taken in over 100 fosters, and Elvis “insists” he be allowed to “groom and bathe” each one. He follows his new friends around during the day, then “snuggles with them at bedtime.” This attention helps the kittens with their socialization, making it easier for them to get adopted. And Elvis’ kindness has been rewarded — he was recently named a winner of Arm & Hammer’s Feline Generous Happily Furever After contest, and a donation was made to the animal shelter.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by WeirdGiftOfTheDay.com

A woman who shares her name with the tech devices ‘Alexa’ and ‘Siri’ says she constantly sets them off during online meetings when clients say her name. 27-year-old Alexa Seary of Philadelphia, (whose surname is pronounced ‘Siri’), says her Amazon Echo and Apple products constantly go off during online meetings when her name is announced. She has been the butt of many jokes since Apple introduced its personal assistant function, Siri, in 2011. Imagine her shock when Amazon released its own assistant device, the Amazon Echo in 2014, named Alexa. But obviously it’s not TOO much of a concern for her. She plans to keep her last name when she gets married.

AVOID THESE PERILOUS PIERCINGS:

Professional piercer Marie took to TikTok to reveal the 4 piercings that she warns her clients to avoid. Her video has been viewed more than 9 million times…

1. “Smiley”: That’s the fleshy flap of skin that connects your upper lip to your gum — and usually peeks out only when the pierced person smiles. Gums can be damaged if the ring isn’t placed correctly. And the metal can damage tooth enamel. Infection is also a risk, due to food residue.

2. Back dermals: This refers to piercings placed just above the hip on either side of the spine. Risks include infection, tissue damage and scarring.

3. Nape/neck: These can also be problematic, with a higher chance of rejection by the site, plus the chance of excessive swelling.

4. Dimple piercings: Placed squarely on either side of the face below the cheekbone, these are “hard to heal” because they’re in a high movement area, and when eating, there’s also a chance you could “bite down on that bar and break your teeth.” LINK:
