SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

As if ‘beautiful people’ didn’t already have enough advantages in life, researchers have found another. Numerous studies have shown that attractive individuals benefit from a “beauty bonus” and tend to earn higher salaries. Add to that the fact that people blessed with beauty are expected to be more intelligent, and thought to be better leaders, which, of course, influences career trajectories and opportunities. Now, according to a new study, attractive people are also considered more trustworthy. Researchers in France who conducted a study involving 357 volunteers found that the “beauty bias” also exists when deciding whether we choose to trust someone. In short, we are more likely to think of someone who is attractive as trustworthy. The researchers concluded by saying that this bias is so hard to overcome that even those who benefit from good looks can be influenced to think of other attractive people as trustworthy.

Nearly every afternoon from September to March, a thunderstorm develops over the Tiwi Islands in northern Australia. In fact, it happens so regularly, the Bureau of Meteorology actually refers to it by name — Hector. At 3pm daily, people are known to line the shores of Darwin, about 100km (62 miles) away, just to snap pictures of the storm forming. “Hector” also known as “Hector the Convector,” is one of the world’s most consistently large thunderstorms, reaching heights of approximately 20km (66,000 ft).

The Lanford Lunch Box may be going out of business soon — for good this time. Deadline is reporting that “The Conners” Season 7 is in doubt. Production has already wrapped on strike-shortened Season 6, and cast negotiations — which are usually ironed out by this time each spring — have not yet begun. In the event that The Conners is canceled, producers are prepared. A tag scene was reportedly filmed, which will be added to the Season 6 finale — if it turns out to be the series finale.

A couple were mistakenly divorced after solicitors at a London law firm made a boo-boo. A final order for the divorce of a separated couple, known as Mr. and Mrs. Williams, was accidentally applied for by solicitors at Vardags law firm after they “clicked the wrong button” in an online portal, says a report. The mistake was made when the lawyers intended to complete a divorce for another client “but inadvertently opened the electronic case file in ‘Williams v Williams’”, a British judge said. The divorce was finalized 21 minutes later. Worse still, when the mistake was realized 2 days later, a high court judge refused to repeal the divorce.

A kid in a car without a child seat: It wasn’t that long ago that this was legal. In France, for instance, child seats have only been mandatory since 1992. For Canada and the US, it was the 1980s.

Checking your cash before going out: Before bank cards, you wouldn’t dream of leaving home without cash. Credit cards didn’t become popular until the 1970s. In the 1980s, ATMs popped up everywhere.

Buying a newspaper every morning: In movies, we often see the commuter faithfully picking up the morning paper on the way to the office. Of course, the internet changed that.

Throwing away plastic bottles: Recycling hasn’t always existed as we know it today. While plastic bottles are everywhere, we’re increasingly aware of the need to recycle them.

Having a tooth pulled by your barber: That’s precisely who pulled out damaged teeth after dental care instruments were invented in the 16th century.

Watching movies at specific times: Remember waiting for the exact time a movie would be shown on TV? And tough luck if you missed it! Thanks to streaming, the way we watch shows and movies has been transformed.

Corporal punishment at school: Not only do laws now prohibit it, society sees it as barbaric. Current teaching methods favor non-violent means of discipline.

Smoking in restaurants: You knew this was coming. Smoking sections first appeared in in the 1990s (US). Eventually, smoking was banned in all public places, including restaurants.
