SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

In spite of the fact that people who often exaggerate or downright lie often think they can tell when someone else is doing the same thing, a new Canadian study has found that these liars are actually MORE likely to be fooled by misleading information. A team from the University of Waterloo worked with over 800 volunteers in a series of trials examining their lying skills. They determined that the more frequently a person tends to be untruthful, “the more likely they are to be duped by various types of misleading information regardless of their cognitive ability.”

The First Cannabis Church of Georgia is now open, and welcoming an inclusive community dedicated to the spiritual and healing properties of cannabis.


X user @noahpasaran recently posted that he was shocked to discover that the term “Debbie Downer” originated from the 2004 “Saturday Night Live” sketch of the same name, rather than the sketch being named after an existing phrase, like most people probably assumed. The ‘Debbie Downer’ character (played by Rachel Dratch) is the ultimate party pooper who is even able to make a trip to Disney World a miserable experience. That led to a thread where X users shared other popular phrases that people thought existed way before they did, and also similarly, had unexpected origins. Here are some examples, which we believe to be correct…

• “Bucket list”: @JakeAnbinder wrote that the term (meaning a list of things you’d like to do before you die) came from the movie “The Bucket List” starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, and was coined by screenwriter Justin Zackham in 2007.

• “Wardrobe Malfunction”: @zedonarrival pointed out that this one originated when Justin Timberlake used the term in 2004 during his public statement about the Janet Jackson “nipplegate” incident during the Super Bowl halftime show.

• “Mullet”: @ecto_fun claimed that the name for the hairstyle originated in 1994, thanks to the Beastie Boys’ song ‘Mullet Head’. While the hairstyle certainly existed before then, Oxford English Dictionary credits the Beasties for the name.

• “Saying the quiet part out loud”: @GarlicCorgi pointed out that the phrase “saying the quiet part out loud” comes from “The Simpsons”. In a 1995 episode, ‘Krusty the Clown’ says: “Let’s just say it moved me…to a bigger house! Oops! I said the loud part quiet and the quiet part loud!” The phrase gained popularity on Twitter, and transformed into “the quiet part out loud” in the 2010s.

BONUS: • “Shipping”: The fandom term, which is used when fans want 2 people or characters to enter into a relationship, exists thanks to “X-Files” fans really, really wanting ‘Mulder’ and ‘Scully’ to get together in 1994. That’s according to an article in For The Win. LINK:
