SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

When you stay in a budget or mid-level hotel, you might help yourself to the travel sized lotions or the coffee packets and think nothing of it – but did you ever wonder what people tend to take from the really fancy hotels? Wellness Heaven, a German spa and luxury hotel guide, surveyed over 1,300 hotel managers to determine what items are most commonly stolen by guests at 5-star hotels. It may come as no surprise that the clientele at these places enjoy being pampered, and that may be why towels and bathrobes came out on top as the most popular items to pilfer at top-flight hotels. Of course, guests also snuck out hangers, pillows, cosmetics, batteries and cutlery from their rooms, but it was found that guests at 5-star hotels also seem to like to bring the fancy coffee machine along with them when they check out. Shockingly, fancy hotels were also more likely to be the victims of an art heist, being about 4 times more likely to have a picture taken off a wall. Computer tablets are another commonly-stolen item, as are TVs and (get ready for it) mattresses. (Those are probably most often taken out in the middle of the night, FYI.) One hotelier in Italy even reported that a grand piano was stolen from the lobby…during the daytime…in plain sight.

A UK food truck owner has unveiled what must be one of the world’s most calorific burgers, with a bun made of 8 Krispy Kreme donuts. In addition to the donuts, the burger features 3 beef patties and 6 slices of cheese slathered in melted butter. Tom Warwick said of his heart-clogging concoction: “Everyone loves a donut burger but I wanted to go bigger and better.” He operates the food truck “Meat Castles” in Retford, Nottinghamshire. The burger contains 3,180 calories — the equivalent of 6 Big Macs — or more than the total number of calories an adult human should consume in a day.

Idris Elba is set to star in and direct new thriller “Above the Below”. The independent survival thriller – which will also star Succession’s Caitlin FitzGerald and After’s Hero Fiennes Tiffin – will see 3 astronauts endure a very bumpy re–entry to Earth. After a “chaotic and destructive” crash landing, they find themselves off course and in the middle of the ocean; their capsule begins to sink to unfathomable depths, and another battle for survival starts. Filming began last week.

Zack Snyder is hanging up his cape when it comes to superhero movies. The filmmaker behind “Watchmen”, “Man of Steel”, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, and “Justice League” said in a new interview that he no longer has “excitement” for the genre, though he noted that there are a few stories he’d consider tackling should his pal James Gunn — or Marvel — come calling. In the revamped DC world, Snyder said he’d be game for a “Dark Knight Returns” adaptation. On the Marvel side, Snyder said he’d consider directing a ‘Daredevil’ and ‘Elektra’ movie — specifically, an adaptation of “Elektra Lives Again” — “But that’s it”.

Will Smith confirmed a sequel to 2007’s “I Am Legend” remains in the works — and that costar Michael B. Jordan is “in and we’re doing it”. He told the audience at Saudia Arabia’s Red Sea International Film Festival that the second film will utilize the alternate ending from the first film’s DVD extras that indicated his character was still alive. Smith also said that he has a call with Jordan scheduled for today to discuss the script for the sequel, which “just came in”.

A team of researchers found that people who believe in “Chance” and “Luck” are more likely to live less healthy lives than those that do not.

Hot Girl Walks” have been the talk of the internet – or at least TikTok – since 2021, when content creator Mia Lind first shared her method for looking and feeling her best. But as those of us in the Northern Hemisphere move into the coldest months, the experts at Shape magazine are making the case for the “Chilly Girl Walk”. Those who take outdoor walks in cooler temps can expect to enjoy all the mental and physical benefits of a Hot Girl Walk, plus a few more. Being outdoors in the cold helps us gain perspective, feel more joyful, and feel more connected. In addition, it may encourage you to take deeper breaths, as well as get some precious sunlight exposure, so rare at this time of year.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

The word of the year, according to Merriam Webster is … “authentic”? Really? (No pun intended.) Actually, when you think about it, it does make sense. The year was dominated by headlines about deepfakes, AI, fake news, and whatever the heck Elon Musk was up to next. Editor at large Peter Sokolowski said that while lookups for the word are routinely heavy on the dictionary’s website, they were boosted to new heights this year, because of a “kind of crisis of authenticity.” He pointed out that “What we realize is that when we question authenticity, we value it even more.” Others considered for “word of the year” include: rizz, kibbutz, implode, coronation, deepfake, and indict.
