Anyone who watched Crazy Rich Asians will know what I'm talking about when I reference "the emerald ring".

It turns out that the epic piece of jewelry is not only real, but it belongs to none other than Michelle Yeoh.


For those who haven't seen Crazy Rich Asians yet, be warned that there are spoilers ahead. But you can catch up with the rest of us because the film is now available on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD here.

The end of Crazy Rich Asians was pure romcom perfection when Henry Goulding's character, Nick Young, chased down Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) to propose to her with his ever-disapproving mother's ring.

Nick's mother, Eleanor, is played by Michelle Yeoh, and she refuses to accept Rachel until after Rachel confronts her during an epic game of Mahjong.

As a token of her approval, Eleanor gives her gorgeous emerald ring to Nick to propose to Rachel with.

The audience never sees Eleanor give Nick the go-ahead, but we all understood that she accepted Rachel when Nick opened the ring box and the epic emerald was revealed.

In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Michelle Yeoh revealed that the ring is, in fact, real.

Not only that, but the ring belongs to Michelle Yeoh, herself!

When asked if the ring was a gift or if she got it for herself, Yeoh responded like the boss that she is.

"I don't wait for people to give me presents. If I want flowers, I'm going to send them to me."

People are all about Yeoh's style of self-love.

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.
