SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

What’s the best way to keep your dog happy and healthy as he ages? Let him run with the pack. With kids? Not so much, according to a new study. In the largest survey of its kind, researchers polled more than 21,000 dog owners to determine what health factors are important to keep canines aging well alongside their humans. From the survey, 5 key factors emerged that impact a dog’s health: neighbourhood stability, household income, social time with children, social time with animals, and owner age. But by far, the effect of social support (canine companionship) was 5 times stronger than financial and other factors. The study concluded: “This shows that for dogs, like many other animals, socialization is important to health”. But the researchers were surprised to note that there were negative effects on a dog’s health if there were children in the household.

Despite the incredible popularity of TikTok, a new survey shows it definitely has a way to go among the “under 12” crowd before it becomes the favorite social media platform. An online survey for the “U.S. Precise Advertiser Report: Kids” found that 9 out of 10 kids access content on YouTube versus just 4 in 10 for TikTok. The rest of the top 5, in order, following YouTube and TikTok, are: Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.

He didn’t give in to “pier pressure”. Colin Jost is denying he was smoking ganja when he and his former “Saturday Night Live” co-star Pete Davidson decided to purchase a decommissioned Staten Island ferry. Jost wrote on Instagram: “Is it worse that I was actually stone-cold sober when we bought the ferry?” He also posted a screenshot of media coverage of Davidson’s claim that the comedians were “very stoned” when they made the nautical purchase in January 2022. Jost also wrote: “We’re excited to prove the non-believers wrong. You’re going to be BEGGING to get on this ferry in 2 years. Mark my words.” The funnymen — who bought the vessel for $280,000 with other investors — planned to turn it into an event space, but the project has stalled, for unknown reasons.

Carrie Fisher’s last movie will finally see an audience — 7 years after her death. The “Star Wars” icon wrapped filming for “Wonderwell” 6 weeks before she died on Dec. 27, 2016. Now, the movie is slated to premiere in theaters on June 23, followed by a digital release. The film’s official synopsis reads: “A coming-of-age fairy tale set between modern-day Italy and an imaginary realm just beyond, ‘Wonderwell’ follows a naive and inquisitive 12-year-old girl on a thrilling journey that transforms her world forever.” Director Vlad Marsavin said the film took 7 years to come together due to Fisher’s unexpected death, the pandemic, and visual effects challenges that stretched the budget.

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan nearly had a classic-rom-com trifecta. The pair famously starred in 1993’s “Sleepless in Seattle” and re-teamed for 1998’s “You’ve Got Mail”. And Hanks’ wife Rita Wilson says he was also offered the lead in 1988’s “When Harry Met Sally”, opposite Ryan…a role that eventually went to Billy Crystal. And Mrs. Hanks has just revealed the reason behind the lost trinity of rom-coms. In a podcast appearance, she said: “He turned it down because he was going through a divorce and he was very happy to be not married. So, he could not understand that a person going through a divorce would have anything other than just like, ‘I’m so happy.'”

Get set for a new form of communication with your car. Mercedes-Benz and Microsoft have agreed to add ChatGPT to Mercedes-Benz cars in the US. ChatGPT is Microsoft’s “generative artificial intelligence” software that can engage in very human-like dialog. Many vehicles already have voice-command capabilities, allowing drivers to ask the computer to adjust the temperature, find a navigation destination or place a phone call. But ChatGPT will make these voice commands more fluid and natural — and will be able to remember the context of what is being discussed and engage in back-and-forth dialog with the driver or passengers, according to Microsoft. With ChatGPT, the system will be able to respond to a wider range of requests, including ones that might not be related to the car or driver. Like what? Drivers could ask for a quick recipe, for instance, or ask what’s the best time of the year for a trip to a certain destination. The ChatGPT system can also interact with other apps, to do things like making restaurant reservations or purchasing movie tickets.

An Ontario parent has gone viral after uploading to TikTok what she calls “the most hilarious birthday invitation I have ever seen”. Natalie LeClaire says she was absolutely thrilled when her son came home with the invitation, which definitely didn’t beat around the bush in terms of what kids and parents could expect at the upcoming party. Sharing a pic of the invitation, she reads it aloud: “You are invited to Elle and Edie’s 5th birthday party. This event is brought to you by Pinterest fails and the Dollar Store, so please set your expectations appropriately. As requested, the theme will be ‘unicorns but with rainbows and maybe bats…but there should be princesses and also Minnie and we need dancing lights’ so… dress accordingly.” The invite continues: “Please pack a bathing suit, sunscreen, puddle jumpers etc., in case your sweet baby angels decide our original plan sucks and the pool would be a better time. If you would like to drop off and run, we support that entirely. If you would like to stay, we will provide ‘adult juice’ and deny any offers of help to be polite, but deep down want the support. You do you.” She concludes her video by saying: “Needless to say, we will absolutely be attending…because these are my people.” Her video has been viewed 5.4 million times. LINK:

A Reddit user recently asked, “What’s the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?” — and the responses are priceless. Here are some of them…

☞ “Don’t drink and drive meant all drinks. My dad was super confused when I told him he wasn’t allowed to have any soda until we got home.”

☞ “That the high-pitched noise on hot summer days was electricity running through the power lines. It was really grasshoppers.”

☞ “Still waiting for that watermelon in my stomach to come out.”

☞ “When you went to a fast-food place, the default drink was Coke, and if you wanted something else, you’d press the button on the lid (“diet” for instance) and now you had Diet Coke.”

☞ “My mum told me we used to be apes. I believed her, but I didn’t understand why there were no photos of me of when I used to be an ape.”

☞ “When I was about 6, I asked my dad what the button on the top of the clock by my bed was for. He said it was for the alarm. From then on, I was afraid to push it because I thought it would call the fire department.”
