After much speculation, Warner Bros. Discovery made it official at Wednesday’s event to unveil the new Max streaming service: The studio is re-adapting J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” books into a TV series with an all-new cast, with Rowling onboard to executive produce. The 7 novels will play out in the form of a streaming show debuting exclusively on Max, the newly renamed service which combines HBO Max and Discovery+. While it wasn’t confirmed that each season will take up one novel, each book does take place over a single school year.

Comedian Kathy Griffin has revealed she’s been diagnosed with “complex post-traumatic stress disorder”. She began a candid TikTok video by saying: “Let’s talk about PTSD. Never talked about it publicly. If any of you know my story, you’ll understand that this really started for me about 5 and a half years ago.” That seemingly refers to her personal and professional fallout in 2017 after she posed for a photograph with a bloodied replica of former President Donald Trump’s head. As a result, Griffin said: “Every single morning I wake up terrified to see if I’m gonna be okay or not.” Her openness about PTSD resonated with many followers, as Griffin took to TikTok again later, stating that she’s “really grateful for [the] response”, also saying: “So far I’m okay and that’s how it is… day by day.”

Just in time for the weekend, Chinese scientists say they’ve discovered a ground-breaking treatment that may cure hangovers. A team from the Chinese Academy of Science’s Institute of Zoology claims to have genetically engineered a probiotic, taken in the form of a yogurt or pill before a night out, which they say can not only prevent a hangover, it could protect your liver from the ravages of booze. Using an enzyme which accelerates the breakdown of alcohol in the body, their experiments on mice showed that administering the probiotic had the effects of reducing alcohol absorption, prolonging alcohol tolerance, and shortening animals’ recovery time after exposure to alcohol.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A Russian fish salad, known as “Indigirka salad”, was recently voted the worst dish in the world by the readers of online food guide Taste Atlas. Indigirka salad originated in Yakutia, which is known as the coldest inhabited region in the world. It’s a simple dish, consisting of diced whitefish combined with onions, and seasoned with oil, salt, and pepper. So, what’s so bad about that? In Indigirka salad, the fish is not only raw, but frozen solid, which may be expected from a dish born in a region where temperatures routinely drop below -70°C (-94°F). It is usually served as an appetizer, accompanied by lemon wedges and a shot of vodka.

According to AskReddit users . . .

Chicken wings: “They used to be the cheapest part of the bird. Remember 5 cent wing nights? … now 35 cent wing nights or 50 cent wing nights are advertised as a good deal.”

Camping: “Camping with my family in an old tin can camper, best memories of my childhood. Now I work in a campground…gawdy toy haulers everywhere…a large flat screen TV sitting on a picnic table (turned on), using campground water to fill a hot tub…people cutting tree branches so it didn’t scratch their 6-figure RV as it tried to squeeze into a small campsite.”

Football: “It used to be a working man’s game. My Dad took me and my cousin to games every week home and away. This is beyond many now.”

The foodie treatment: “Donuts, cupcakes, hamburgers, wings – have all been given the “foodie” treatment and went from good cheap eats to gourmet pricing without a corresponding increase in quality.”

Ripped denim jeans: “They’re casual, comfortable, and usually ripped in places caused by typical wear patterns. Then rich people had to make them weird…with clear plastic cut-outs…how an alien would guess what ripped jeans are supposed to look like if you translated it into their language poorly…and then (they) charge $2,000 for the monstrosity.”

Houses: “There are so many wealthy people from the city buying up cheap homes where I live simply to rent them to other wealthy people…on Air BnB. People can’t afford to live here anymore but most of the homes are empty 6 month out of the year.”

Auctions: “Storage shed auctions used to be really cheap until that stupid Storage Wars show came along. Now, too many people are jacking up the prices thinking that there’s some lost antiques worth thousands that they’d find in every unit.”
