SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

People who experience “FOMO” are more likely to be promiscuous. FOMO, an acronym for “Fear Of Missing Out” popularized by author Patrick J. McGinnis in 2004, has become a popular shortform on social media. But a new study published in Current Research in Behavioral Sciences found FOMO goes back waaay before that. Co-author Adam Davis said they determined that “higher levels of FOMO were associated with a greater desire to seek out short-term sex partners.”

Older people tend to use the wrong emojis. A new study out of the University of Nottingham found that older people commonly misuse emojis — such as surprised, fearful, sad and angry reactions — to express their emotions through texting. Researchers tested a group of 253 Chinese and 270 United Kingdom adults, and found “a negative association between age and accuracy in emoji recognition in general.” The study’s lead author said: “Some ‘universal’ facial emotions may not be ‘universal’ when they transfer to emoji.”

Gordon Ramsay made a fan’s dream come true. The TV chef posted a touching TikTok video of him meeting longtime fan Madison, who has been diagnosed with stage 4 terminal cancer. Ramsay flew Madison to see him in Miami after she shared her goal of wanting to meet him as part of a “bucket list” video on TikTok that went viral in January — which has amassed over 7 million views. Footage in Ramsay’s vid showed Madison getting emotional as she held hands with him, before he gave her a hug. The pair were also seen laughing as Ramsay gave Madison a few twirls while dancing together in his restaurant, Hell’s Kitchen. They also enjoyed dinner together. LINK:

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

I’m not sure you really want to hear this, but a top researcher is warning that uncontrollable artificial intelligence may eventually lead to the extinction of the human race. Dr. Roman V. Yampolskiy, an AI safety expert and an associate professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Louisville, was responding to a new survey that found there isn’t much evidence to suggest that AI can be managed safely. He said in a media release: “We are facing an almost guaranteed event with potential to cause an existential catastrophe. No wonder many consider this to be the most important problem humanity has ever faced. The outcome could be prosperity or extinction, and the fate of the universe hangs in the balance.” The main problem, as Dr. Yampolskiy sees it, is the complexity and unpredictability of AI systems, which can learn, adapt, and make decisions in ways that humans cannot foresee or understand. This makes ensuring their safety very complex…and potentially unachievable. He suggests that the pursuit of advanced AI should also involve demonstrating that it can be controlled, and is asking for a significant ramp-up in AI safety research.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A woman tried to sneak out of a private hospital in Turkey, hours after undergoing plastic surgery in an attempt to avoid paying. In a clip that has been doing the rounds online, a woman wearing a hospital robe and white slippers can be seen arguing with doctors and nurses who are trying to stop her from leaving. The woman’s face is visibly swollen and almost completely covered in bandages. which makes sense when considering she had undergone extensive plastic surgery just hours prior. A local TV station reported she had traveled to Turkey to get plastic surgery to her face, but as soon as she could walk straight after the cosmetic procedure, she allegedly tried to sneak out of the hospital without paying. The patient was escorted back inside, but it’s unclear how the situation was resolved.
