SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Although we’ve always been told that wisdom comes with age, 1 in 9 seniors say they still don’t have life figured out. A survey of 2,000 Americans 64 and older dispels the idea that older people have all the answers – even though more than half said that everyone expects them to. 54% of seniors said they feel like there’s “always” or “often” pressure on them to make the best decisions, and nearly one-fifth feel that decision-making actually gets harder as they get older (17%). The survey found that older folks used to feel very confident about making large financial purchases and investing on their own, but one-third would now consult others about those decisions beforehand.

Keeping up with the latest news can be very bad for your health, according to a study. Last year, researchers at Texas Tech University found that those who obsessively follow the news are more likely to suffer from both physical and mental health problems, including anxiety and stress. Those who constantly check the latest headlines end up with “significantly greater physical ill-being”, that can lead to a vicious cycle where people check for updates more and more often.


James Cameron’s “Avatar: The Way of Water” broke box office records when it was released at Christmas, and after months at the theater, it is finally hitting home video — with 3 hours of bonus features. The movie will be available for purchase from all major digital retailers (including Prime Video, and Apple TV) beginning March 28. Unlike other blockbusters, The Way of Water will premiere on digital retailers before streaming or physical media. But don’t worry, this digital edition will be worth it. Among the extras will be features that chart the evolution and production of the groundbreaking blockbuster, delving into the the intricacies of Pandora’s habitats, along with the blood, sweat and tears that went into its actualization.

Elon Musk will be the center of a new documentary from Alex Gibney, the Oscar-winning director of “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.” Already months into production, Gibney announced the project Monday, saying he’s “hugely excited”. It is described as a “definitive and unvarnished examination of multi-billionaire tech entrepreneur and CEO of Tesla, SpaceX and Twitter.” Gibney’s additional credits include “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room” and “Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine.”

Keanu Reeves has always wanted to play ‘Wolverine’. Taking part in a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ session, Reeves was asked if he regretted rejecting any roles, and he replied: “No, but I did always want to play Wolverine.” Reeves has experience in comic book films after starring in the 2005 DC flick “Constantine”, a role he is set to reprise in an upcoming sequel. As for what his favorite film of his career is, Reeves responded: “Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!! …I’ve been very fortunate to work on a few films that have changed my life. I can’t pick just one.” He went on to mention A few, including “River’s Edge”, “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure”, the “Matrix” trilogy, “Point Break”, and “John Wick”.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

I just read that using social media can hurt a student’s chance to be accepted into some colleges.

The European country of Latvia began seizing cars from heavily drunk drivers this year. But when those cars began overfilling compound yards, authorities had to decide what to do with them. 200 cars have been seized so far this year, and now those vehicles are headed for Ukraine. Twitter Convoy, a volunteer group, has been tasked with delivering the cars to the war-torn country, to be used by the Ukrainian military and hospitals.

Two super-smart twins, Gloria and Victoria Guerrier, have been named valedictorian and salutatorian (respectively) of their New York high school for their exceedingly high GPAs. Neither of the young Einsteins has ever received a grade lower than 100. Oh, and when the dynamic duo isn’t one-upping each other in the classroom, they’re competing in 3 varsity sports — earning All-County and All-State honors for track. This fall, both will head to Yale University to study computer science. According to Gloria, the sisters “use each other to improve upon ourselves” in the way that iron can be used to sharpen iron.

Mulan has the highest kill count of any Disney character, including villains.

79% of pet owners sleep with their pets.

Even though smoking is banned on airplanes, ashtrays are mandatory on every plane. This is for safe disposal in case someone breaks the law.

When you have to make a choice, and every choice is a bad one, it’s called a “zugzwang”.

The word “porcupine” means “spiny pig” in French.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A grandmother in Arizona made sure her funeral would reflect her colorful and fun personality — with an M&M-shaped casket. Mary Stocks Martin died Feb. 9, at the age of 86. Her grandson told a TV reporter that the retired teacher “used to initial everything ‘MSM,’ but that ‘S,’ in cursive…looks like M&M. The students started bringing her M&Ms, memorabilia and it turned into something that she reflected on as part of her success as a teacher.” Martin built her M&M-shaped casket, with help from her son, years before her death. It was modeled after her favorite M&M spokecandy — the one named “Blue”. It featured the close-eyed M&M while his hands held miniature candies bearing the names of Martin’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Parts of the M&M-themed funeral were shared in a video slideshow that was uploaded to TikTok, and has been viewed more than 9 million times. LINK:

THE LIST: Brought to you by


Butter: It is safe to eat past its best before date as long as it’s been stored properly and doesn’t show any signs of spoilage (mold, change in color or texture). Butter is good for a month after the best before date in the fridge – and up to a year in the freezer. (Sure, it’s safe to eat – but I still can’t afford it!)

Bread: Yes, it will go stale, but as long as it’s not moldy, it’s safe to eat. If stale, try toasting it or using it for breadcrumbs. If it has mold – trash it.

Hard cheese: It’s usually safe to eat for months after its best before date. In fact, aging actually improves the flavor of many cheeses. Just make sure it’s stored in the fridge, in an airtight container.

Canned foods: They’re safe as long as the can is intact and the contents look and smell normal. Keep canned foods in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight or heat.

Dry cereal: It doesn’t go bad the same way that things like meat or dairy products do because it is processed, and designed for a long shelf life. Generally, cereal is good for up to a year past its best before date. (The cereal my kids eat isn’t even “good” to begin with!)

Hard candy: Good news – That leftover Halloween candy you found under the sofa is probably still good. Candy has a long shelf life because it contains preservatives and is often packaged in a way to prevent contamination. Sugar also acts as a natural preservative.
