Research shows that there’s a direct correlation between high temperatures and short fuses, and that anger can sometimes lead to bad behavior. One experiment found that people who were playing video games in a hot room, in certain circumstances, were consistently crueler to their gaming partners than those who were in a room with a more moderate temperature. Another study found that when temperatures were high, Major League Baseball pitchers were much more likely to intentionally hit a batter if someone from the pitcher’s team had been hit by a pitch earlier in the game. And a study of NFL players found that the hotter it got, the more players committed penalty infractions. What we can do about it, according to one expert: “Maybe put less on the schedule when the temperatures are high, or hang out with people who irritate you less. Maybe even reschedule important meetings for cooler days.”

On the final weekend of the summer box office season, “The Equalizer 3″ took top spot with a solid 4-day long weekend take of $42 million domestically, when Monday estimates are included. Meanwhile, “Barbie” became the 14th film in box office history to pass $600 million in domestic grosses, adding $13 million over the 4-day weekend to bring its total to $612 million in North America. With $1.38 billion worldwide, “Barbie” has passed “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” to become the year’s highest grossing film.

Bradley Cooper appears to have another winner on his hands. The actor-director’s latest film, “Maestro”, made its debut at the Venice International Film Festival over the weekend, and received a rousing reception at its festival premiere. The Cooper-directed biopic — in which he also portrays famed composer Leonard Bernstein — was met with a standing ovation that went on for a full 7 minutes. While neither Cooper nor co-star Carey Mulligan were in attendance due to the SAG-AFTRA strike, Bernstein’s 3 children tearfully welcomed the applause, waving to the crowd.

Well, so much for that. Apparently, beer goggles aren’t a thing. The phenomenon — when someone appears much more attractive to a person who’s had a few drinks – has been debunked. Stanford University researchers enlisted 36 people to test the alcohol-induced mirage, but found that participants did not waver from how attractive they found other people after drinking. They did find, however, that booze appeared to give drinkers some extra confidence, making them more likely to interact with people they found attractive, while under the influence.
