Once the ball drops and the champagne is gone, the New Year is all about the new you. But what's so bad about the old you?


Let's be honest: When is the last time you actually kept a New Year's resolution? The start of a new year always feels like the perfect time for self-improvement but the first week of January is a slaughterhouse that most New Year's goals do not survive.

Instead of feeling guilty about breaking your resolutions this year, though, you might want to take a page from the queen of confidence herself, Miss Piggy.


Self improvement is great, but to start off the new year Miss Piggy reminded us all that self-acceptance is even better. While everyone else was promising to change who they are, only Miss Piggy wondered why you would mess with perfection.

It was the kind of Tweet only she could deliver.






But what else would you expect from the most fabulous pig on the planet?







Learning to love yourself for who you are is one resolution you can work on year-round.





We would tell Miss Piggy to never change, but it looks like that was her plan all along.

"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.
