SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Does a full moon really cause people to act strangely? No, according to a 2019 study by New York University. Researchers collaborated with the Vallejo, California police department to determine if “The lunar effect” is real. They found no significant uptick in reported crimes or arrests during nights when the moon is full. When other police departments heard about the study, they wanted an investigation of their own data. Similar sets of research with the Barrie, Ontario Police Force in Canada and the Irapuato Citizen Safety Secretariat in Mexico also showed no uptick in crime during full moon events.

C-3PO and R2-D2 had their own 1985 single-season 13 episode spin-off TV series called Star Wars: Droids. The season showed the adventures of R2-D2 & C-3P0 before they joined Luke Skywalker.


A sequel to Amazon’s “Road House” movie is in the works, with Jake Gyllenhaal reprising his lead role as ‘Dalton’. While Amazon is keeping quiet on any other details for now, it did report that the first film has attracted nearly 80 million worldwide viewers to-date, after premiering on Prime Video March 21 — and attracting a record-breaking 50 million-plus viewers over its first 2 weekends. That makes it “Amazon MGM Studios’ most-watched produced film debut ever on a worldwide basis.”

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga”, the 5th installment in George Miller’s action franchise, had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, and was given with a 7-minute standing ovation, as Miller and members of his cast, including Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth, looked on. Anticipation has been high for Furiosa, which launches in North America on May 24. It comes 9 years after “Mad Max: Fury Road”, which starred Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy, received rave reviews, made just under $400 million, and garnered 10 Oscar nods, winning 6.

Cameron Diaz has been on a long break from acting, but she’s on her way back. Netflix has announced that her comeback movie “Back in Action” will debut in November. The streaming comedy premieres Nov. 15 and will find her starring alongside Jamie Foxx, with whom she headlined her last movie, the 2014 musical adaptation, “Annie.” This time, the duo plays former CIA agents who gave up the spy life to start a family, but wind up ‘back in action’ after their cover is blown.

Nicolas Cage is returning to the Spider-Verse…sort of. The Oscar-winner has landed the lead role in Amazon Prime Video’s live-action “Spider-Man Noir” series. It will tell the story of an aging and down on his luck private investigator (Cage) in 1930s New York, who is forced to grapple with his past life as the city’s superhero. Cage reprises the role after portraying Spidey in the 2018 animated film “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.”

A clothing company once developed a shirt that can be worn 100 days straight without developing any odors.


Highway: Can be one lane in each direction or several lanes in each direction, with varying speeds, and can stretch across a single state or multiple states. May have stop signs or traffic signals, and even railroad crossings. Doesn’t necessarily have high speed limits.

Freeway: These are in heavily populated regions and big cities, and are always fast-moving, with multiple lanes in both directions. Ramps and exits are the only access points, meaning there is no interruption in the flow of traffic. Can be entirely in one state, or go through several.

Expressway: Much like a freeway, expressways actually connect other highways or freeways within the same city or metro area. May have tolls and they often have carpool lanes.

The livestream video Portal connecting New York to Dublin has been temporarily switched off — due to what organizers are calling “instances of inappropriate behavior.” The Portal streamed video between a Manhattan plaza and a Dublin street. But the installation’s sponsors shut the 24-hour video feed off Tuesday, stating that while “The overwhelming majority of visitors have behaved appropriately…instances of inappropriate behavior have come from a very small minority of Portal visitors and have been amplified on social media.” One TikTok user posted a video showing her flashing her breasts to the Portal shortly before the shut-off.
