Former bodybuilder, actor, and California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger celebrated an important milestone with his son, Joseph Baena last weekend.

The young man graduated from Pepperdine University this past weekend, where he studied business.

A photo of the proud father and his son accompanied heartwarming words of congratulations from Arnold:

"Congratulations Joseph! Four years of hard work studying business at Pepperdine and today is your big day!"
"You have earned all of the celebration and I'm so proud of you. I love you!"



Joseph also posted photos from his commencement to Instagram, including photos with both of his parents.

Pepperdine University is located in Malibu California. Their mission statement says that the university is committed to:

"the highest standards of academic excellence and Christian values, where students are strengthened for lives of purpose, service, and leadership."

Other notable Pepperdine alumni include former Disney Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter, and actresses Tamara and Tia Mowry.

Baena attracted a bit of attention online earlier this year as he really got into bodybuilding and recreated some of his father's most iconic bodybuilding photos.



Social media was full of congratulations for Joseph.

Graduating from college is a monumental achievement in anyone's life. We hope that this accomplishment will lead to much success for Joseph in the future!

Movies are made to touch us deeply, as they mirror our human experiences back at us.

Movies that have that kind of impact are not to be taken lightly. They often deal with heavy subject matter that there is no sugarcoating: for example, the film Grave Of The Fireflies deals with some extremely harsh realities of what it was like to live in Japan during WWII, as we see the suffering brought on two innocent children.

These movies are made to do something to you--not just for you to view.

WARNING: Some NSFW content ahead.

Are humans just naturally morbid? Many of us watch scary movies or spend our evenings reading about serial killers on Wikipedia.

If you were to ask Professor Glenn Sparks from the Brian Lamb School of Communication at Purdue University, he'd tell you that our morbid curiosity with gross or unnerving subjects "goes back to the initiation rites of our tribal ancestors, where the entrance to manhood was associated with hardship."

Regardless of where this curiosity stems, social mores often dictate that asking questions about morbid topics is insensitive and inappropriate.

That's why it's interesting that people were able to ask their questions openly thanks to Redditor InkBlooded, who asked the online community,

"What is your most morbid question that you've always been afraid to ask?"

Scammers often target the elderly who don't know any better.

But these days, no one is immune from getting taken advantage of. Cons of the internet have adapted as innocent consumers answering an urgent email have become wise to their ways.

Persistent scammers have all planned out several backup plans to keep the person they have on the line engaged and genuinely concerned for their financial stability, often threatening that the FBI could intervene as a consequence of purported unpaid charges.

In movies and TV, a character who is portrayed as highly intellectual has visible signifiers.

A smart character can be found in the library, immersed in tons of reading. They may wear spectacles. They may be characterized as socially awkward because they're usually withdrawn from society.

In real life, however, a person with a high IQ is not as easily identified by common Hollywood stereotypes of smart people.
