SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

If you’re trying to lose weight, here’s a little bit of info to put in your back pocket. Lately, we’ve been hearing a lot about “intermittent fasting”, the act of limiting yourself to eating only during certain hours of the day. If that sounds like something you’d hate to do, here’s some good news: Intermittent fasting is no better than restricting calories when it comes to losing weight, according to a new study. Researchers at the University of Colorado enlisted 90 adults to take part in a trial. They found that those who restricted calories, but did not restrict the time frame lost about 12 more pounds than those in a control group, after one year. Those who participated in intermittent fasting, eating all their calories within an 8-hour window, lost about 10 more pounds than the control group. The lead study author said “The sudden increase in popularity of (Time Restricted Eating) is likely due to its sheer simplicity and the fact that it does not require persons to count calories.”

A professor investigating the death of a beached sperm whale ended up discovering 21 pounds of “whale vomit” – worth half a million dollars. Antonio Fern├índez was inspecting the dead whale at Nogales beach in the Canary Islands when he found a huge clump of ambergris in it. Ambergris is a rare and highly sought-after secretion produced in the digestive systems of sperm whales. It is typically only found in around one out of 100 specimens, and is believed to be created when they cannot digest the beaks of their prey. It’s valued in the perfume industry for its distinct odor and scarcity, and is often called “floating gold” or the “treasure of the sea.”


Allison Mack, the former “Smallville” actress convicted and sentenced in 2021 to 3 years in federal prison for her participation in the notorious NXIVM cult, was released Monday after serving 2 years. She had been sentenced on racketeering and racketeering conspiracy charges relating to her role in the cult, which prosecutors described as recruiting and grooming women to be used as sexual partners by leader Keith Raniere. She pleaded guilty, and received a relatively short prison sentence for assisting prosecutors in the case against Raniere, who in 2020 was sentenced to 120 years on charges related to sex trafficking.

Sometimes a joke contains a kernel of truth. A viral clip from “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” has resurfaced, featuring the host joking with Harrison Ford about the idea of playing ‘Indiana Jones’ when he’s 80 years old. The joke turned to reality as Ford recently appeared in “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” just weeks before turning 81. In the clip, from the year 2000, O’Brien quips that at 80, Ford could do movies in which the treasures are brought to him. Ford laughs, and O’Brien suggests the title for an “Indiana Jones” film with an 80-year-old Ford: “Indiana Jones and the Comfortable Bed.” LINK:

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Research shows plants can do a form of arithmetic.

A tech firm and university in Tokyo have teamed up to produce an app that they say can tell you when your cat is in pain. Since its release in May, “Cat Pain Detector” has racked up 43,000 users. The teams gathered 6,000 cat photos, and carefully studied the positions of the animals’ ears, noses, whiskers and eyelids. They used a system to measure tiny differences between healthy cats and those suffering pain due to hard-to-spot illnesses. Next, the app developers fed the information into an AI system, which has further refined its skills thanks to around 600,000 photos uploaded by users. They claim their app now has an accuracy level of better than 90%.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Welcome, brave golfers, to Ahlgrim Acres. It’s a macabre mini-golf course that sits in the basement below Ahlgrim Family Funeral Services, the local funeral home in the Chicago suburb of Palatine. It’s decked out in coffins, skeletons, and other creepy decor. Robert Ahlgrim (yup, that’s his real name!) turned the basement of his family’s funeral home into a mini-golf course in 1964 and the family has maintained it ever since. The course is closed during services out of respect, but when it’s too hot or too cold outside, neighborhood kids flood the funeral home basement to putt some balls through the mouth of a skull or around the tombstones of a miniature cemetery. Neighbors appreciate the family’s sense of humor and the entertainment it provides to literally thousands of people each year. Plus, it’s free!

There’s no better time to talk about the small things that can totally ruin your day. And a Reddit user asked women to answer that exact question. They did NOT disappoint…

Definitely finger or hand injuries. Anything from a paper cut to a smashed thumb or a kitchen burn…Then it gets bumped over and over again all day long.”

⇒ “A zit forming on the inside of my nose.”

⇒ “Braking just hard enough (that) my purse falls out of the car seat and my stuff goes everywhere.”

⇒ “Waking up to realize that your phone didn’t charge overnight and you have no charger at work.”

⇒ “Leaving the house with no lip balm. I’d rather just take a day off and go back home lmao.”

⇒ “Wearing no-show socks that slip down while walking.

⇒ “My biggest grievance is somebody having the audacity to be in the kitchen while I am in there.”

⇒ “When you bite the inside of your mouth and then you have that lump of flesh that you keep accidentally biting again, setting back any healing progress and experiencing the pain all over again.”
