SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Just in case there was any doubt, a survey shows that 64% of people agree that swearing after you’ve been hurt actually lessens the pain. 64% of Brits said, to them, swearing helps take the edge off the pain of a minor injury, and science backs them up. More on that in a second. People had no argument when it came to the word that’s most effective as a natural analgesic. As you might imagine, I can’t say it here, but it starts with “F”. The study, by insights agency Perspectus Global, also found that the average Brit man has more of a potty-mouth than women, swearing 10 times a day compared to 8 for women. Neuropsychologist Dr. Rachel Taylor says: “The science shows that when people swear, it can activate the amygdala which in turn triggers a fight-or-flight response. This leads to a surge in adrenaline, a natural form of pain relief.”

The Greatest Word of All Time” is… Love! (based on multiple rounds and more than 13,000 online votes) To determine the winner, deliberated on a field of 32 words for voters to choose between and opened the Twitter polls in mid-March to let the internet public vote for their #GWOAT. Defined by as “a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person,” love faced thank you in the final matchup, a term kindred in its goodwill, though probably too practical and specific to have a chance against the all-encompassing love. John Kelly, senior director of Editorial at, is available to discuss the #GWOAT competition, including: Love’s origin and value as a noun and a verb. Why the choice from an online majority in a ‘Boaty McBoatface’ world is cause for hope Read’s take on love as The Greatest Word of All Time here:


Keanu Reeves reprised his role of ‘John Wick’ in “John Wick: Chapter 4”, but don’t expect him to say a lot. A report in The Wall Street Journal counted all the words Wick uttered throughout the film and he seemingly didn’t have a lot to say, but there was a whole lot to see. The 4th installment of the John Wick saga clocks in at 169 minutes and Reeves says only 380 words in the entire movie. Almost a third of Wick’s dialogue consists of just one word like: “Yeah.” WSJ also says that about 10% of his words are featured in the movie’s trailer, which makes the hero seem almost chatty; “Wick says more in that 2.5-minute clip than he does in the first 25 minutes of the movie itself.”

Robert Downey Jr. fans now have a shot at an interesting piece of history from Jon Favreau’s Walk of Fame ceremony — because someone is selling what he claims is Iron Man’s chewed-up gum! The gum is currently up for sale on eBay with a starting bid of US $40,000. The listing says the seller attended the ceremony where “Iron Man” director Jon Favreau was added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Iron Man himself, Downey Jr., was on hand for the event — and created a moment by taking chewed gum out of his mouth and sticking on Favreau’s shiny new star., joking that he did so “just to make it official.” LINK:

The TikTok account for the popular snack Fruit Roll-Ups has uploaded a video to debunk recent viral posts saying people can eat the snack WITHOUT removing the plastic lining. Some users also suggested that there is actually no plastic on the product, and posted videos showing themselves eating the entire snack without removing anything. In Fruit Roll-Ups’ video, a woman is seen unwrapping a Fruit Roll-Up. As she bites in, the plastic lining becomes visible as it separated slightly from the food. She says: “Nope. Plastic.” In the caption, Fruit Roll-Ups wrote: “Legal is making me clarify that you should not attempt to eat plastic.” LINK:

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A big time drug dealer in Novi, Michigan had an organization that distributed fentanyl, heroin and cocaine across the U.S., as well as a large scale money laundering operation. But even big and successful criminals are still bozos. His downfall? He had shipped heroin to a customer in a Sony Playstation box. When the recipient was busted, an enterprising cop decided to scan the UPC code on the box, and sure enough, our bozo had registered the Play Station. Cops traced it to his stash house where the game was set up and in operation when they raided the place. Busted! He’s looking at 22 years in federal prison.
