If you've already seen Captain Marvel, you know that the real star of the movie is the cat.

"Goose," the orange tabby, stole the show for millions of fans. The only thing better than superheroes? Their pets.


Of course, like most things in Captain Marvel, Goose is more than meets the eye:

Goose is an alien creature called a Flerken (a race of aliens that resemble cats) who went with Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) after her owner, Mar-Vell (Dr. Wendy Larson) was killed.

So appropriately, Goose got her own poster:

LOOK AT DAT FACE.

And then, naturally, everybody wanted to see their own cats in an epic movie poster.

And so, a new trend was born:



The trend appears to be primarily based in South Korea.

In fact, Goose was trending in South Korea because of these excellent posters:


But slowly the trend spread to English speakers:





Honestly, we are confused.

Confused, because, why are there exactly zero superhero movies starring cats?

Better yet, we want to see our own cats on the big screen!



One of those cats is definitely a Kree and the other is a Skrull.

We will let you decide which.



Not to be dramatic or anything but we would literally take a bullet for Peanut.

Isn't this the greatest hashtag you've ever seen?




Forget the Year of the Pig. 2019 is obviously the year of the cat!

Go forth and make yer cat memes!

The University of Michigan actually studied the affects of shopping on our sadness levels. Purchasing something you enjoy can actually decrease sadness 40 times better than not purchasing something.

There are tons of other benefits like dopamine increases, anxiety reduction and improved mood. We wanted to know what people are buying to give them that rush of happy hormones and increase their joy.

When we think of a "hero" we might think of someone in a cape who's saving civilians from terror. Or maybe we think of the essential workers we've called heroes throughout the pandemic.

Heroism is simply defined as "great bravery," according to Oxford Languages.

If being a hero is about showing courage, bravery and strength, heroic feats happen all around us every day with ordinary people.

They say good things come in small packages—as a lifelong member of the "Never hit 5 feet tall" club it's a phrase I've had thrown at me often.

It's right up there with "small but mighty" and "people mcnugget."

It's popular because there's a fair bit of truth to it, though.

When it comes to some things, smaller is just flat out better.

Everyone has their "type" when it comes to sexual attraction.

It could be a woman's scent, a man's fashion sense, or a confident attitude that really gets a heart fluttering at 100 m.p.h.
However, what someone thinks is "hot" or "sexy" may be a total turn-off for others.
