It's almost New Year.

And the most common New Years' resolution? To get yourself on track with fitness.


We all know most people stick to that plan for about two weeks, and then suddenly, the gyms are abandoned again. But some people really follow through with their fitness journeys, and those people are an inspiration to all of us.

Check it out.

Meet Vande Wade Hinds, an assistant city and district attorney from Waxahachie, Texas.


(Translation: American Vance Wade Hinds, who, last year weighed 215 kilograms (475 lbs) shared his story on Facebook to help other people with obesity.)

Hinds, who was inspired by comedian Bert Kreischer's sober October challenge in 2017.


Hinds decided to take matters into his own hands after realizing his body weight was approaching 500 lbs. His journey began last November, and within just one week, he'd already lost 10 lbs.

Now well past the 365 day mark, where Hinds had already lost 200 lbs, he continues on his fitness journey, often sharing his meals and plans to his personal Facebook page.







On Christmas Eve 2018, Hinds shared another video of a morning weigh-in, showing that he is holding steady at 200 lbs under his starting weight.


And the support is pouring in from all sides.








2019 is coming. Will you stay as resolute as Vance Wade Hinds did?

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.
