Jeopardy! has had an interesting week. The trivia quiz show recently featured an episode where an entire category of video game questions went unanswered.

How do you follow that? Well, how about a marriage proposal?

Contestant Michael Pascuzzi was doing just fine on the September 28 show. Host Alex Trebek set up Michael for the question of his life. Insisting he knew nothing about the Orlando, Florida, native, Trebek asked for some information.

Michael, trailing in last place, happily responded:

"I can fill in for you, I just wanna say one quick thing and ask Maria Shafer, right there...if she would make me a winner today and marry me?"

Her answer? It's Jeopardy! so she responded tearfully in the form of a question:

"What is yes?"


People on Twitter were quick with their support of the newly engaged couple. There was a lot of envy over not having a partner smart enough to make it onto a nationally-syndicated show to propose to them.






Thankfully, she managed a response before Alex sent the show to commercial break.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
