Film buffs rolled their collective eyes at news that this year would bring yet another version of A Star Is Born, and their skepticism is understandable.

The original 1937 version starred Janet Gaynor. The 1954 Judy Garland vehicle rebooted and rebranded her career. The 1976 version starring Barbra Streisand was met with mixed reviews. When we learned we would be getting another remake starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, many people thought: HARD PASS. That is, until the rapturous reviews came in hailing this as the best version of the story yet, lauding Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga and launching both both of them right into the Oscars race.

Since we seem to get a remake of this story every few decades, one Twitter user imagined what the next version might look like.

This Muppet version fan trailer is as close to a shot for shot version of the Cooper-Gaga trailer as one can make with existing Muppet footage.


People were obsessed.




Others praised specific editing details.




And most just wanted to see this version immediately.




Let's all pray that the inevitable 2042 remake of this movie is this Muppets version.

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
