(TOPIC STARTER)... "What Does Your Crazy Neighbor Do To Be Labeled "The Crazy Neighbor"?


Reddit user u/oilpaintroses asked: "What does your crazy neighbor do to be labelled "the crazy neighbor"? Replies Include: "He eats my flowers. In his defense, he told us that he has been doing it for years when he introduced himself after we bought the house. He also brought over frozen cookies in a plastic bag, as a housewarming gift, but wasn't sure what was in them.... He's a great neighbor. Just an older, eccentric stoner who keeps to himself and eats my flowers." "She has a penchant for going around sticking nails in people's tires at night. This has happened dozens of times to nearly everyone on the street, though she's slowed down since more people started installing video cams and motion-sensor lights in their driveways.... She's just one of those misanthropic people who gets a kick out of others' misfortune. " "The old lady who lived below me left me multiple cryptic letters blaming me for the birds chirping too loudly in the mornings. Not pet birds. The sparrows and sh*t outside. This went on for months." "I have a neighbor who I have seen watering his grass during rainstorms on multiple occasions." "Ours is the classic retired old man, terrible health and literally nothing going on in his life. He's not married, and I try to stay out of everyone's business, but I don't believe he has any kids. Rarely has visitors. ...So he's taken it upon himself to be the neighborhood police person. He spies on everyone and makes it his business to know everything." "She dug up my fancy flowers and replanted them in her own yard, 15 feet away." "He jumped in front of my car while I was driving down the road to yell at me for going through his trash at night. Told him it was probably raccoons. He refuses to believe it to this day." "We had one a while back that had a meth lab in the home. Crazy fights, yelling at all hours of the night,, dude would wander around the hood tweaked out crazy, and once he threw a Molotov cocktail out of the 2nd floor window at another dude who was smashing up his car, screaming, "I'll f---ing kill you...!" Those were interesting times."

Matthew Perry Slurs His Words During the ‘Friends’ Reunion Promo


Fans are worried about Matthew Perry after he slurred his words in a new “Friends” reunion trailer. A video showing the 51-year-old actor with an odd gaze and a labored speech pattern was posted to People magazine’s website and YouTube yesterday to promote the HBO Max special, which airs May 27. Perry appeared with former co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc as they talked about what it was like to get back together to shoot the legendary sitcom one more time. Fan comments: “Just saw People interview and can’t believe how Matthew Perry looks… seriously it breaks my heart.” “It pains me to see Matthew Perry like this, he just seems off, gazing at the void, speaking slowly.” “Hate to say it, but I’m sad and scared like hell for Matthew Perry.” Other notables from the reunion trailer: While reading the script from "The One Where Everyone Finds Out," Kudrow recreates her epic, "My eyes!" scream. The cast watches a fashion show of famous outfits from the series, including Ross' "Holiday Armadillo" suit and Rachel's famous pink bridesmaid dress — tucked into her underwear and all.

Demi Lovato Comes Out as Non-Binary


Demi Lovato kicked off their new podcast, “4D with Demi Lovato,” by coming out as non-binary. She said, "Over the past year and a half, I've been doing some healing and self-reflective work. And through this work, I've had the revelation that I identify as non-binary. With that said, I'll officially be changing my pronouns to they/them. I feel that this best represents the fluidity I feel in my gender expression and allows me to feel most authentic and true to the person I both know I am, and still am discovering.” They said they're still "learning and coming into myself" and "don't claim to be an expert.” They invited first guest Alok Vaid-Menon, a gender non-conforming writer and performer, to join for the conversation. Demi met Alok after discussing being non-binary with singer Sam Smith. During the conversation, Demi defined non-binary with Alok, saying it means "you are not exclusively a man nor a woman." Demi and Alok discussed pronouns, and Demi said, "It would mean the world if people could start identifying me as they/them.” However, Demi will "be accepting" if people "slip" and use she/her pronouns. They just request that people are "making the effort.” They realize it may take getting used to, explaining, "I think it's important because I want to use these pronouns that feel right to me. I also just don't want people to be so afraid of messing up that they don't try to use them." Demi also shared the podcast on Instagram with a personal annoucment saying, “Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me. I’m doing this for those out there that haven’t been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones. Please keep living in your truths and know I am sending so much love your way.”





More than Four in Ten Millennials 'Don’t Know, Don’t Care, Don’t Believe' God Exists


According to a new study: just 26% of Gen X and 16% of millennials believe that when they die, they will go to Heaven only because they believe in God, compared to nearly half of the generation before them. Researchers from Arizona Christian University assessed the views of four generations: millennials (born 1984-2002), Gen X (1965-1983), baby boomers (1946-1964) and builders (1927-1945). Researchers found that among other recent generations, millennials have gone farther in cutting ties with traditional Christian views. A staggering 90% of builders believe you treat others as you want them to treat you, while less than half of millennials agree. 43% of millennials stated they either don’t know, don’t care or don’t believe God exists compared to 28% of boomers. 44% of millennials believe Satan is real and influential, compared to 64% of boomers. Overall, younger Americans are significantly more likely than the two previous generations to embrace horoscopes as a guide and Karma as a life principle, to see “getting even” with others as defensible, and to accept evolution over creation. On spiritual matters, Americans younger than 55 are far more likely to distrust the Bible and to believe God is uninvolved in people’s lives. A majority of Americans call themselves Christian, ranging from 57% of millennials to 83% of builders.
