What is your happy place? It turns out that most of us have a favorite place to be, and according to a new poll, for 93% of adults, that place is outdoors. The survey of 2,000 adults in the UK, found that for Gen Z, their happy place is watching a sunset, while older generations are most content walking along the beach, strolling the countryside, or sitting in the yard. Millennials said they are happiest cuddling with their kids, or relaxing in the yard.

It has been found by scientists that chocolate is good for your health — in more ways than one. A study from Zhengzhou University in China says a chemical found in chocolate called theobromine has many benefits for the body and the brain. The chemical, which originates in cocoa beans, can help you lose weight by breaking down brown fats. In addition, it is anti-inflammatory, high in antioxidants, and can protect the brain from Alzheimer’s. The scientists also say that theobromine can counter the impact of high cholesterol levels on memory and cognitive function, and fight against depression.


Sam Raimi is finally addressing rumors that he’s working on another ‘Spider-Man’ movie starring Tobey Maguire. Marvel fans have been speculating for a while that the director would reunite with Maguire for a 4th installment of the Spidey universe he created in 2002. In an interview, Raimi said: “I did read that, but I’m not actually working on it yet…Marvel and Columbia are so successful with current Spider-Man [movies]…I don’t know that they’re going to go back to me, and say, ‘Well, folks, we can also tell that story!’” Raimi has said he was open to the idea of directing a 4th Spider-Man film.

Clear the aisles — Target Lady is back! Kristen Wiig reprised her iconic “Saturday Night Live” role for a series of new Target ads, beginning with a teaser shared this week. From the moment she wakes in the short ad, Target Lady is ready for action – donning red fuzzy slippers with the Target logo on them before getting in a morning workout – using the Target checkout lane as a makeshift treadmill. Next, she dives into her day, literally head-first through a slide that takes her to the store for another dream come true day as a Target cashier. The new campaign promotes Target’s “Circle Week”, beginning on Sunday. LINK:

A new study found that chocolate is better for the brain than exercise.

For the life of me, I cannot see how this could be a bad thing. The cookie brand “Chips Ahoy!” says it is unveiling a new cookie…with better chocolate chips. It is part of a recipe revamp of the original cookie, known for its bright blue packaging. The company says the new version will look and feel the same, but with an updated taste that features chocolate chips with higher cocoa and Madagascar vanilla extract content, giving it a “richer cookie flavor” and “creamy” chocolate taste, according to the company. The new and “MMMproved” recipe will be available starting next month.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A restaurant is offering a discount to parents of good children, according to a viral post on Reddit. The thread, in the sub-Reddit group r/mildlyinteresting, shows the cropped image of a restaurant receipt with an itemized discount line that reads “Well Behaved Kids.” The savings for the parents of the angelic darlings worked out to $6.72. The name and location of the eatery was not given, but people definitely weren’t shy about giving their 2 cents worth on the policy. One wrote: “Kids are people; they’re human beings, and not all of them are going to be ‘well-behaved’ all the time. That’s life.” Another felt “Having someone make a judgment call on every single table with kids is ridiculous.” On the other side of the booth, one Redditor supported the police, saying: “I would absolutely 100% give a massive discount to well-behaved children at my job … I cut hair.” Another chimed in: “There needs to be a discount for well-behaved adults, too.”
