In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, actress Melissa McCarthy says she wakes up every morning at 4:30 to get in a little "me" time.


Everyone needs some time to relax, rewind, and reset. The Mike and Molly actress says her time begins at the crack of dawn and involves classic television, particularly The Incredible Hulk. She tells the magazine:

"I watch Lou Ferrigno freak out, throw a clearly rubber tree. Bill Bixby's high-waisted super chambray-colored pants. They're always so pristine. Even though he's backpacking in the woods, he's so freshly laundered. I had no memory of the softer side of the Hulk. Lou Ferrigno, as the Hulk, picked up a baby bird's nest — or did he pick up actual baby birds? I can't remember which. I was like: 'You're not supposed to touch a baby bird and put them back in a tree. They'd die and then their mother would leave them.' Is that true? If you touch a bird does the mother really take off? That's what we were always told, right?"

Okay, so the comedian has a tendency to go off on mental tangents, but she adds:

"I treat myself right."

McCarthy also says she loves reading The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times.

Fans on Twitter agree the actress deserves time for herself.


McCarthy's latest project, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, is getting great reviews.

People love McCarthy in this role.

Can You Forgive Me? opens October 19, 2018.

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.
