SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

It turns out there are worse things you can do while dining out than double-dipping. A survey has found that the absolute worst thing you can do while at a restaurant if you’re looking to impress someone — is to be rude to the wait staff. When asked about the biggest dining turn-offs, 60% of adults said they can’t stand people who are rude to restaurant workers. Next on the list is when someone spits something back onto their plate (49%), so that gives you an idea of how reprehensible it is to be rude to waiters. Other “icks” include licking fingers when eating, eating with your mouth open, and – yes – double dipping. Want more: Here they come: playing with food, criticizing someone’s cooking, and putting ketchup on every meal. The OnePoll survey also found that just 28% of people would speak out about a “dining don’t” while on a first date.

It turns having big, well-developed abs could be bad for a man’s health. Researchers from the University of California-San Diego are challenging the commonly-held belief that body composition (the amount of fat, bone, and muscle in the body) is an indicator of heart health. The new research found that that men with a larger abdominal muscle area have a 6-times greater risk of heart disease. They did not find the same co-relation in women.


Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey” won all 5 categories for which it was nominated at the 2024 Golden Raspberry Awards on Saturday. “The Razzies” honor the worst of Hollywood, and are handed out on the day before the Academy Awards. Blood and Honey practically swept the Razzies, winning worst picture, director and screenplay, screen couple (‘Pooh’ and ‘Piglet’) and remake/rip-off/sequel. Sylvester Stallone and Megan Fox won the supporting actor categories for “Expend4bles,” and Fox also took home the lead actress honors for “Johnny & Clyde.” Jon Voight won worst actor for “Mercy.”

The box office saw more good news after the strong opening of “Dune: Part Two” last weekend, as “Kung Fu Panda 4” brought families back to the tune of an estimated $58 million opening domestically. While not at the level of the $60 million start the first “Kung Fu Panda” earned in 2008 before inflation adjustment, it tops the $41.2 million opening that the animated series’ third installment earned in 2016. In second place was “Dune: Part Two,” which earned a projected $46 million in its second weekend.

Pierce Brosnan thinks Cillian Murphy would be a good 007. The former ‘James Bond’ star named the “Oppenheimer” actor as a candidate to play the suave spy in an interview with BBC at the Oscar Wilde Awards, saying: “Cillian would do a magnificent job as James Bond on His Majesty’s Secret Service”. Murphy has been among those rumored to play the iconic character for years, although he has previously gone on record as saying that the next 007 “should be a woman,” and that he’s “a bit old” for the role.

An analysis of Google search data by Spin Genie uncovered the nostalgic snacks that people (in the US) are searching for the most. Some are still available, some are just fond memories…

1. Dunkaroos: Wat there any doubt this would be #1? What’s better than cookies dunked in sugary frosting? While they disappeared for a while, they came back in 2020, with new flavors!

2. Oreo Cakesters: They are basically an Oreo cookie, but with cake-like cookies – and frosting in the middle. They also made a comeback, in 2022.

3. Bagel Bites: The perfect after-school snack. Really, it’s a mini pizza. Except smaller.

4. Tab soda: Released in the 1960s, the cola remained a popular diet beverage until 2020, when it was discontinued.

5. Fruitopia: When it debuted in the ‘90s, it was advertised as a healthy alternative to soda. The fruity drink featured flavors like Tangerine Wavelength, Strawberry Passion Awareness, Fruit Integration and Blueberry Watermelon Wisdom. A few of those have been revamped under the brand Minute Maid.
