SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Maybe the stereotype of the video game-playing slacker who stays up all night smoking weed, who can’t hold a job and never goes outside, is a bit harsh. Well, actually – yeah, that IS harsh – especially in light of this: Three in 4 mobile gamers swear video games have improved their lives. In a survey of 2,000 gamers in the US shows, 67% said games are good for their problem-solving skills, 62% felt gaming sharpens their critical thinking capabilities, 61% said it helps with their hand-eye coordination. Respondents also claimed video games have helped them in cooperating with others, playing certain sports, and even driving. And perhaps most importantly, more than two-thirds said that their moods are positively impacted by playing video games. Of them, 51% feel more relaxed, 27% feel happier and 19% feel sharper.

Nissen, the maker of Cup Noodles, has announced it will sell caffeinated noodles, with the idea that its product will help all-night video gamers stay awake. The caffeinated noodles will come in 2 flavors: garlic and black pepper yakisoba (which contains shrimp, pork, egg and cabbage), and curry, which uses a base of pork and vegetables. Both products are sauce-based and “soup-free, so there is no need to worry about getting your hands or peripherals dirty, making them the perfect meal in between game-playing sessions,” according to the company.

ABC’s “Good Morning America” has revealed the celebrities who will be joining Jamie Lynn Spears, Ariana Madix and Charity Lawson for Season 32 of “Dancing With the Stars.” Celeb competitors include Jason Mraz, Mira Sorvino, Xochitl Gomez, Adrian Peterson, Lele Pons, model and actor Tyson Beckford, “Too Hot to Handle’s” Harry Jowsey, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Mauricio Umansky, Alyson Hannigan, Matt Walsh, and “The Brady Bunch’s” Barry Williams. The hit dancing competition returns on Sept. 26.

CBS has found its “Late Late Show” replacement, and it’s not what many were expecting. The network is officially ditching the late-night talk show, at least for now, following James Corden’s departure and the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Instead, the long-running syndicated comedy talk show “Comics Unleashed With Byron Allen” is joining the late-night lineup. The series will be going for a limited run to account for the strikes beginning on Monday at 12:37AM ET with 2 back-to-back episodes each night. Comics Unleashed is hosted by Allen and features a rotating panel of comedians. It currently airs on 14 CBS stations.

Although she was labeled the “world’s richest actress” by Forbes, Reese Witherspoon wants you to know that she’s not a billionaire. Speaking at the INBOUND conference in Boston, days after 70% of her fashion brand Draper James was acquired by Consortium Brand Partners, Witherspoon says any speculation she had reached billionaire status is false. She said: “That’s enormously flattering and if I ever touched the bottom of whatever Oprah’s magic golden boots do, I would be so lucky”. It is true, though, that in 2021, Witherspoon sold her production company for $900 million, and that’s probably what caused the billionaire rumors. In June, Forbes pegged her net-worth at $440 million.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Scientists say they have made a new material that can stretch up to 20 times its original length, without breaking.


Golf is a good walk spoiled.

Golf is an awkward set of bodily contortions designed to produce a graceful result.

Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into a very small hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose.

Golf is a game where the ball always lies poorly and the player well.

There’s no better game in the world when you are in good company, and no worse game when you are in bad company.

Golf is a sport whose secret is to hit the ball hard, straight, and not too often.

Your worst putt will be as close as your best chip.

The only shots you can be dead sure of are those you’ve had already.

It’s good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls while they are still rolling.

The biggest liar in the world is the golfer who claims that he plays the game merely for exercise.

Old golfers never die, they just putter away.

Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!

Divers who recover golf balls from lakes make up to $150,000 per year.

One in 5 adults believe that aliens are hiding on our planet disguised as humans.

A UK company allows “being hungover” as a valid reason for missing work. Employees are allotted 4 hungover days per year.

The first train reached a top speed of only 5 mph (8 km/h).

55% of people yawn within 5 minutes of seeing someone else yawn.


Question: 65% of women don’t trust their man to do THIS. What is it?

Answer: Repair their car

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Soda pop maker Fanta is teasing its new, seasonal creepy mystery flavor — and it’ll turn your tongue black. On its website, Fanta wrote: “[We’ve] got a spooky new mystery flavor that’s hauntingly delicious. But be warned, your tastebuds are in for a fright. So, sip if you dare and look in the mirror if you’re in for a scary surprise.” Here’s what we know so far: The tongue-transforming zero-sugar drink comes in a 20-ounce bottle decked out with Halloween imagery such as a hulking spider and a flying bat. It is the latest novelty in the soda brand’s “What The Fanta (WTF)?” campaign. Launched by parent company Coca-Cola in 2022, WTF offers limited-edition mystery flavors meant to “fool senses and challenge tastebuds.” The company is asking soda drinkers to have a taste and see if they can figure out the flavor of the frightful drink. Guesses can be shared on social media under the hashtag #WhatTheFanta. LINK:
