If you’re going on a first date, maybe meeting up for a meal isn’t such a good idea. According to a survey, more than 4 in 5 adults believe dinner dates are the hardest to get away from. So, you might want to plan your “escape route” ahead of time, just in case it doesn’t go well. The survey of 2,000 actively-dating Americans found that while more than half (56%) tend to go for dinner and a movie as a first date, some other top choices are more escape-friendly. Half prefer casual drinks, followed by coffee (43%) or going to a market or picnic (34%). The OnePoll survey also found that on average, a first date should last a little less than 3 hours, and it takes respondents about 4 dates to feel comfortable with that person.

is a little strange these days for French speakers. Why? Because in
French, phonetically, “ChatGPT” sounds exactly the same as “chat
j’ai pété, which, in French, means “Cat, I farted.” It seems
to them that every time they come across English media or catch part
of a conversation, people are saying with a straight face: “Is cat,
I farted going to steal your job?” or “How are schools dealing
with cat, I farted?”

Margot Robbie could’ve starred in “American Horror Story: Asylum” – but she didn’t get the part. Casting director Eric Dawson has spoken about seeing Robbie in action during a test for the second season of the FX series in 2012. In a podcast interview, he said: “Margot has a lot of ‘it’ factors.” He said the audition took place “right before she broke out” and already, “she was such a star. It was crazy, her star appeal when she walked in the room.” Robbie didn’t get the role, and went on to star in “Wolf of Wall Street”, but Dawson didn’t detail why she didn’t get the “American Horror Story” part.
There’s no end to Barbie‘s magic tricks. On Monday, Greta Gerwig’s movie passed the $1.342 billion grossed globally by “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2”, to become the top-grossing film in the history of Warner Bros. worldwide, not adjusted for inflation. Today or tomorrow, Barbie will become only the 13th movie in history to cross the $600 million mark domestically. And it’s expected to pass Super Mario Bros.‘ global gross of $1.36 billion in the coming days to become the top worldwide earner of the year. That would put Barbie at #15 on the all-time list of top-grossing movies.

A “Growing Pains” reboot is supposedly in the works.
Sure, the back-to-school season can be tough on kids. But it can also be hard to deal with for another family member. And I’m not talking about Mom or Dad. We’re talking about the family dog. Animal behaviorist Sarah Byosiere says that after a summer tagging along with his 2-legged siblings, your doggo has to adjust to long days without them. And when the kids get home, they’ll probably have new friends to play with and homework to prioritize over fetch. And that can leave a mutt feeling a little down. She advises that we save some patience for our puppies, because they may misbehave as a reaction to all this. To help manage the transition, she has a few suggestions, including practicing leaving your dog alone ahead of time, creating a safe space for your dog to go to during the day, and staying calm during departure and arrival times.

Medical experts say they’re aren’t ‘fans’ of the practice of parents tossing their baby in the air – because of ceiling fans. It makes sense, too, because each year, about 2,300 children in the US are treated for head injuries caused by ceiling fans. Even more concerning, experts note that many ceiling fan injuries go unreported, which means the number of injuries is probably even higher. Lacerations were found to be the most-commonly treated ceiling fan injury, with ER docs tending to cuts in 3 out of 5 (60%) cases, but more serious injuries, like concussions and skull fractures, were also reported. Head injuries should always be inspected, and children should be monitored for worrying signs.
