SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

A new study says a man’s neck size affects others’ perception of his parenting skills. Huh? You heard right: Researchers from the University of Arkansas asked 305 male and female participants to look at 4 computer-generated images of the same man — everything remained the same except for his neck muscles. They rated the pictures from 1-7 based on their perception of the man as a good fighter, interest in long- and short-term mating, and effectiveness at protecting and nurturing offspring. The men with visibly larger neck muscles were perceived as more protective of offspring, but less nurturing and less interested in long-term relationships.

A woman on TikTok revealed her easy hack to get rid of a migraine headache — with no side effects. In her video, she said that she has suffered from migraines “forever” and has found relief by simply soaking her feet in hot water. And apparently, it works, because Dr. Kunal Sood, an acute and chronic pain doctor from Maryland, reacted to her post, saying that soaking your feet in hot water can help relieve you of aches without any of the side effects of medications. How? He explained that hot water helps to dilate the blood vessels in your feet, which pulls blood from your head down to your feet. When that happens, the pressure in the head area is eased. The clip went viral, with 3.1 million views, and people flooded the comments claiming that the trick worked for them. LINK:

Academy Award nominee Rachel McAdams will make her Broadway debut next year. The “Notebook” and “Mean Girls” actress will star in the Broadway premiere of Amy Herzog’s “Mary Jane”. The play follows the story of “a single mother in an impossible family situation,” according to the show’s producers. “Mary Jane relies on unflagging optimism and humor, along with the wisdom of the women around her who have become a makeshift family, to take on each new day.” Previews begin April 2 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

Steven Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw have donated $1.5 million in support of striking writers and actors, and others affected by the work stoppages. The funds, dispersed since the WGA went on strike in May, have been used to keep entertainment industry workers afloat, covering basic living expenses, mental heath support and more. Other notables who have written sizable checks to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation include Seth MacFarlane, George and Amal Clooney, Luciana and Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness, Dwayne Johnson, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, Julia Roberts, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Meryl Streep and Oprah Winfrey.

The famous “Brady Bunch” house is finally off the market. HGTV, which had been trying to sell the North Hollywood property throughout the summer, has made a deal for a cool $3.2 million. The new title owner — wealthy home collector Tina Trahan – saved a fortune off the home’s original listed price of $5.5 million. HGTV listed the home in May – after buying it in 2018 for the series, “A Very Brady Renovation.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A study says you should wait 5 years before making jokes about a major tragedy.

A 92-year-old Iowa resident had a 70-year dream fulfilled after a message she wrote on an egg at a packing plant has finally been responded to. Mary Foss and a few other girls that worked at the Forest City plant decided to sign eggs with their name and hometown on them and send them off in different boxes that were going out that day. She wrote: “Whoever gets this egg, please write me”, including her name, address and the date, April 2, 1951. Eventually the story became a memory, but unbeknownst to Mary, her egg was found by a man who kept it for decades in his home and watched it petrify amid his collection of antiques. That is, until neighbor John Amilfitano came across the egg while helping Richardson find something in his collection. When Richardson died the egg languished for a further 10 years in Amilfitano’s China cabinet before the internet entered the picture. In a group called “Weird (and Wonderful) Secondhand Finds That Just Need To Be Shared,” Amalfitano posted pics and his story, writing: “Wonder if she might still be alive!…I keep the egg safe in a pretty, art deco, English, Egg cozy.” The comment section exploded, and within a day, someone had found one of Mary’s nieces, who arranged a telephone chat between the egg author and Amilfitano. Mary says she has finally found a pen pal from New York (Amalfitano lives on Staten Island). LINK:

I may finally have found my true calling: Lying down and doing absolutely nothing. A “laziest citizen” contest in Montenegro has been going on for almost 4 weeks…and there are still a handful of participants in the running for the championship. Well, maybe “running” isn’t the right word to use there…but anyway: Those still involved in the contest are still happily laying about on mats, reading, scrolling on their phones, and really not doing much else. The contest was launched in the tiny country 12 years ago, as a way of mocking a popular myth that Montenegrins are a lazy bunch, according to Radonja Blagojevic, the organizer — and owner of the resort where the contest is held. At last check, the 7 remaining contestants from a starting field of 21 had been lying down for 463 hours. The winner will be awarded 1,000 euros (US$1,070). The rules stipulate that standing or sitting are grounds for immediate disqualification, but contestants are allowed 10 minutes every 8 hours to go to the washroom. LINK:
