SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Researchers say that text messages and social media posts where words are “stretched out” (by inserting repeating letters or groups of letters) aren’t done so for fun — they’re actually conveying emotions. A 2020 University of Vermont analysis of about 20 billion tweets found that by stretching out a word, whether written or spoken, it can alter the meaning of that word, as well as the emotion behind it. Certain words can be an indication of sarcasm and playfulness, like “surrrrre” and “rightttttt.” On the other hand, “yessssss” can indicate tremendous excitement.

Prince Harry has officially declared the US is his new home. The Duke of Sussex quit royal duties to move to America in 2020, with his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, but said at the time: “The UK is my home and a place that I love. That will never change.” Now, Harry has updated his records in the UK to make clear he’s no longer a resident of Britain. The Daily Mail revealed filings published by Companies House on Wednesday for a “Prince Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex” that state his “New Country/State Usually Resident” is now America – when it was previously recorded as the UK.


Autobots, assemble: Paramount has released a trailer for “Transformers One,” the animated prequel starring the voices of Chris Hemsworth, Brian Tyree Henry and Scarlett Johansson. Hemsworth voices young ‘Optimus Prime’, and Henry is ‘D-16’, before he became Optimus’ rival ‘Megatron’. The trailer shows the 2 starting out as worker bots, but soon they gain the ability to change into vehicles and gain weapons, as a battle against a mysterious villain unfolds on the Transformers’ planet of Cybertron. “Transformers One” is set for release in theaters Sept. 20.

Mariska Hargitay would have made her “Law and Order: SVU” character ‘Olivia Benson’ proud last week when she helped a child find their parent — after the kid assumed the actress was an police officer. According to witnesses at a playground in New York, the little girl became separated from her mother and ran up to Hargitay when she saw the police badge on her belt. After enlisting the help of the actress, production on the final episodes of the show’s 25th season was halted for about 20 minutes as she helped the child locate her mother. Shortly after, mother and daughter were reunited and Hargitay was spotted comforting the pair. The moment has gone viral on X.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

In a scene straight out of “Weekend at Bernie’s,” a Brazilian woman reportedly wheeled the corpse of an elderly man into a Rio de Janeiro bank to have him co-sign on a loan. The woman was captured on video standing next to the dead man seated in a chair — and seemingly holding up his drooping head. She is seen talking to the deceased, whom she addressed as her “uncle,” and asking him to sign documents that would allow her to take out a $3,400 loan. When a bank worker pointed out that the man’s color looked off and he appeared “not well,” Nunes responded by saying: “He is like that. He doesn’t say anything.” Bank staffers called police, who arrived and arrested the woman. It was later determined that the 68-year-old man had been dead for several hours prior to his trip to the bank.
