The internet has been eagerly awaiting any news of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, the biopic based on the life of one Mr. Fred Rogers. Mr. Rogers helped to shape the way many Americans learned about the world as children.


He encouraged loving one another and treating everyone with respect and, unlike many others at the time, this included loving those society discriminated against.

Tom Hanks portrays Rogers in the film, which is due to release on November 22nd of this year.

Fans haven't gotten much of a look at the film, as there is still no trailer, but the studio has released a couple of photos of Hanks in character.

In honor of what would have been Mr. Rogers' 91st birthday, another photo of Hanks has been released.

The photo shows what will be a familiar scene to anyone who grew up watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood: Rogers changing his shoes upon entering the house at the start of the show. Rogers always changed out of his jacket and dress shoes, and into a cardigan and tennis shoes, at the start of every episode.


There were quite a few tears shed over the photo.




Some appreciated Rogers' and Hanks' contributions to the world.

Hanks being cast in the role was a popular subject as well.





Many are eagerly awaiting November 22nd!



If anyone is feeling extra nostalgic and wants to revisit one of their childhood favorites, MisterRogers.org posts 5 episodes every other Monday for viewers to stream from their website.

Or treat yourself (and your children) to the entire series.

Additionally, the extraordinary documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor (which was ROBBED of an Oscar nomination last year) is available for purchase. (Be wary; I sobbed my way through it.)

Fred Rogers spent his life encouraging children to treat each other with love and courtesy, and taught valuable life skills through his television program. There are few Americans who don't cherish their memories of their beloved neighbor.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
