Jeremy Renner’s mother wants revenge on the snowplow that ran him over. During a talk at the Disney+ premiere of his new show, “Rennervations,” Renner said that his mom wants to light his snowplow on fire — but he won’t allow it. The “Hurt Locker” star said the snowcat is “a necessity on the property” at his Reno, Nevada, home, and he wouldn’t be able to access his house during “giant” snowstorms without it. Quote: “I just gotta learn to drive it better.”

Guess which group performed better on memory and reading comprehension tests? Yep, the kids that got the bicycle talk.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A computer scientist says you could be uploading your loved one’s consciousness onto a digital device by the end of the year. Dr. Pratik Desai, who has founded multiple AI platforms, tweeted: “Start regularly recording your parents, elders and loved ones.” He feels that “With enough transcript data, new voice synthesis and video models, there is a 100% chance that they will live with you forever after leaving physical body.” The concept is that saved videos, voice recordings, documents and photos of the person you wish to reimagine to your computer would then be uploaded into an AI system that would learn as much as it could about the deceased individual. From there, users could create an avatar resembling their loved one — so this person could, in a sense, live forever on your screen.

According to Chinese philosophers, adding more color to your environment can make you happier, healthier and wealthier. Here are the ones to focus on.

Green: Place lots of green, leafy plants along the right side of your living room to encourage a healthy family.

Yellow: This color is supposed to be great for health and healing. Yun says put a round, golden candle in the center of the room for instant harmony.

Blue: Put a blue trinket in the left corner of your office the one near the door when you walk in. This’ll give you a boost of brainpower.

Red. Put a red lamp in the far right corner of your bedroom to attract a partner or to invite fertility.

Purple. To attract abundance, put a tall purple vase, or some purple flowers, in the far left corner of your workspace.
