THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
My boyfriend is a conspiracy-theory nut. I mean he LOVES all of the wacky conspiracy ideas out there. It's almost an obsession and now it's gotten way out of hand. He had a great job and made a lot of money, but he hated it and often threatened to quit. But I just thought it was typical "grass is always greener" talk so I pretty much ignored him. Well, he quit and he's not looking for a new job. Instead, he spends all his time researching UFOs and government cover-ups of the evidence of alien life. This, obviously, is nuts. I thought it would pass, but he's getting more and more into it. Now it's been four months and he is planning a trip to Washington DC to investigate documents at the Library Of Congress. The job he gave up was over six figures. He's running through his savings and now he's suggesting we move in together to save money. I like this guy a lot, but this is getting crazier than his UFO theories. What should I do?

STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by BetterCreditCards.com
New research out of Hungary says that that puppies instinctively imitate human actions, even without any training or a food reward. The study was carried out by observing the behaviors of puppies, kittens, and wolf pups, and only the young dogs imitated the actions of a human using a body part similar to the trainer’s demonstration. The study authors believe that dog puppies may have evolved to imitate the actions of people in order to learn new skills or information. An alternative explanation is that imitation breeds flattery. Impersonating another creature could be a method of getting into someone’s good graces and improving their social standing.

A California man has set a record by visiting Disneyland for 2,995 days in a row. Last week, Jeff Reitz was finally recognized as the Guinness World Record holder for his streak of consecutive visits to Disneyland in Anaheim CA. His streak visiting the “Happiest Place on Earth” began on January 1, 2012 and ended March 13, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As what started as a “joke between friends” gained traction on social media, Reitz’s celebrity status around the theme park began to rival Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, enough that he started having guests in the parks stop him to ask for photos and autographs.

Kevin Costner’s attorney is firing back at anonymous complaints about his work ethic on “Yellowstone.” Marty Singer slammed reports that unnamed sources have claimed Costner wanted to film the Western drama for 50 days for the first part of the season and only a week for the second batch of episodes, calling them “an absolute lie”. He added: “As everyone who knows anything about Kevin is well aware, he is incredibly passionate about the show, and has always gone way above and beyond to ensure its success.” No comment from Paramount so far.
Savannah Chrisley has revealed that her family has a new show in the works as her parents Todd and Julie Chrisley remain in prison. On a new episode of her “Unlocked With Savannah Chrisley” podcast, she teased that fans will soon be able to get a glimpse of her family’s “new normal.” Speaking to niece Chloe Chrisley, whom she was left to raise, and grandmother Nanny Faye, Savannah said that she’s “talking to a few production companies” about another show, which will detail “how we’re coping with it, how we get through it.” Her family’s hit show “‘Chrisley Knows Best” was axed by NBC Universal after Julie and Todd were sentenced to a combined 19 years for fraud and tax evasion.

Now that the Twitterverse is all freaked out about Elon Musk deciding to charge for a blue check mark, now Mark Zuckerberg has decided to get in on the action. The Meta CEO has announced a new paid subscription service for Facebook and Instagram, granting users a hallowed blue tick for a monthly fee. “Meta Verified” will cost you $11.99 a month on web and $14.99 a month on iOS. It’s launching in Australia and New Zealand this week, ahead of a wider rollout. Meta says the subscription will allow you to “verify your account with a government ID, get a blue badge, get extra impersonation protection against accounts claiming to be you, and get direct access to customer support.” The social media giant has laid off about 11,000 workers in recent months, part of a wider downturn among big tech companies.

(CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY)
SUBTLE SIGNS THAT SOMEONE IS SMART:
An AskReddit thread asked “What is a subtle sign that someone is intelligent?” Here are some of the answers…
☞ “They are aware of their limitations and just how much they still don’t know. As a consequence, they also tend to underestimate themselves.”
☞ “The ability to change their mind when presented with new information. Intelligence is, at its core, a constant reassessment of your own knowledge and the ability to acquire and apply more.”
☞ “They are good at calm debates without resorting to insults, shouting or profanity.
☞ “When it comes to a subject matter they know, they can deconstruct in a way to explain it and use analogies to help it make sense to others.”
☞ “They are unafraid of the phrase, “I don’t know”. It’s only the dumb ones who are unwilling to admit that they don’t have answers.”
☞ “The trick is to be comfortable with saying nothing. Everyone else will be desperate to talk just to be heard, meanwhile you can sit back quietly…If someone else gets there first, all good, the right answer was reached. You’ll get it by thinking carefully, more often than not. Brain first, mouth second.”
☞ ““Quick wit and humor. Speaks to a certain sharpness of the person’s attention and how fast they can communicate.”
