SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

You and every one of your co-workers probably believe this one supposed “truism” about the workplace: If you want to look like you’re valuable to the operation, keep talking about how much work you have on your plate. But now, experts are saying that while boasting about your workload might appear to convey professionalism and dedication to the job, it can actually have the opposite effect. A study published in the journal “Personnel Psychology” says that employees who “stress brag,” or “busy brag,” are more likely to be perceived as less likable — and less competent — by their colleagues. More bad news for busy-braggers: Respondents also felt less inclined to help those who boast about busyness. The study’s head author said that “People are harming themselves by doing this thing they think is going to make them look better to their colleagues.”

Does Blake Lively appear in the upcoming “Deadpool & Wolverine” movie? Fans are speculating that she’ll make an appearance in the much-anticipated superhero film, after spotting what appears to be ‘Lady Deadpool’ in a new teaser for the film, released on Saturday. The clip depicts Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman reprising their title roles as they try to save the world. Around the 30-second mark, after Reynold’s ‘Deadpool’ says: “I’m about to lose everything that I’ve ever cared about,” a pair of legs are seen walking through an orange mist in a red and black Deadpool-esque suit. Online chatter shows that fans are speculating that Lively, who is married to Reynolds, may play Lady Deadpool, a female variant of Deadpool from an alternate universe. Deadpool & Wolverine hits theaters on July 26. LINK:

You can have 4 to 7 dreams in one night.

So…what is the most-expensive item you’ve ever purchased using your phone? A concert ticket? A vacation? A car? A discussion has been going around online a bit recently, about “big-screen purchases”. Thats the concept where many people choose to make larger purchases strictly on a computer — because they want to have a second window open or be able to view details of the agreement in full, to avoid making a regretful mistake. And that brings up the question: Do you pause a purchase until you can sit down in front of a larger screen and pore over the details of what you’re getting yourself into? And where would you draw the line when it comes to buying something using your phone – as opposed to with your home computer?

The makers of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer are celebrating the company’s 180th birthday this year by selling a truly bonkers 180-pack of beer, which is on sale now in the US. Each 180-pack of cans contains 2,160 ounces of beer, or slightly less than 17 gallons’ worth. It’s not the first time Pabst has created a comically oversized package of beer. In 2019, it launched a 99-pack — and 2 years later, it produced a promotional 1,776-can pack to commemorate America’s founding year. LINK:
