SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

It turns out that all those glitzy weight-loss commercials promising amazing results might be telling the truth. New research shows that if you’re looking to slim down, it might be worth it to invest in a commercial weight loss program. The people at the University of British Columbia’s Centre for Obesity and Well-Being Research Excellence found that for those looking to make lasting lifestyle changes and lose weight tend to be more successful when they use a commercial weight loss program — compared to others who try to do it all on their own. A spokesperson pointed out that “evidence-based” weight management programs are a good way to go, considering that for many, medical treatment is unavailable or unaffordable. In a study, those who took part in a commercial weight management program lost more than twice as much weight and reduced their waist circumference by a larger percentage, compared to those who tried to shape up on their own. But interestingly, those in both groups also experienced benefits such as improved blood pressure, heart rate, aerobic stamina, flexibility, and sleep.

TikTok has been testing the ability for users to upload 30-minute videos, signaling a significant move away from the short-form video format that made it popular. Social media consultant Matt Navarra spotted the new option in the iOS beta version of the app in the UK. He says he has heard from some users who are seeing the option in the Android beta version of TikTok as well. The app initially rose to popularity for its short-form video format, originally capped at 15 seconds. It could be that TikTok is planning to allow longer videos as a way of competing with YouTube.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A gassy passenger is being blamed for an American Airlines flight being delayed from Phoenix to Austin. That’s according to a person who posted the story on Reddit. The redditor says they were seated near a perturbed man who was grumbling about something under his breath. After most passengers were seated, they overheard the disgruntled man say, “You thought that was rude? Well how about this smell?” before loudly passing gas. The man then proceeded to complain about the smell of food from other passengers and then got in an argument with several of them. That led to the flight, which was heading towards the runway for takeoff, being stopped and returning to the gate, where the man was escorted off the plane. The Redditor wrote that at that point, “We all breathed a sigh of relief.” The flight was delayed 15-30 minutes.
