Arnold Schwarzenegger is sort of having a moment of life imitating art, but in this case it would be the other way around. The action star, turned governor before going back to acting, is staring in a new Netflix series, “FUBAR” and the storyline feels very…familiar. It’s an action-comedy about a husband who had an affair and is attempting to win his wife back.
If you don’t understand the connection, let me spell it out. Schwarzenegger was married to Maria Shriver for 25 years when she filed for divorce after finding out he not only had an affair with their housekeeper, but fathered a child. The child in question was a teenager when Shriver put the pieces together and confronted the housekeeper about her suspicions.
But unlike Schwarzenegger’s character, Luke, in “FUBAR,” the former California governor acknowledged his actions as the catalyst to the demise of his marriage.
Emotional breakdowns are confusing and exhausting for kids and parents. Parents find themselves at their wit’s end when kids go through emotions they cannot fully process or deal with. Maybe it is 3 a.m., and you are sleep deprived because your baby is wailing in the other room, or you are at the grocery store, and your children cannot understand why you won’t buy them candies. The meltdowns then continue at home, and you find yourself lost as to what you should do. No guidebook prepares parents to control tantrums and meltdowns, but according to an early childhood expert on TikTok, parents should just “let it happen.”
Fantasizing about what it’s like to be rich is something plenty of people do, especially if you’d classify yourself as poor. People make lists of the things they’d buy or businesses they’d start if they won the lottery, even if they don’t play. But being poor comes with ingenuity.
It’s common for kids to have crushes on their teachers and Megan Rotar, a psychologist with the Mental Fitness Center in Rochester, New York, says that is entirely developmentally appropriate. “Crushes can be healthy and positive. Students might find someone who would be a good role model for them, spark an interest in learning and help (them) figure out their newly developing romantic feelings,” she told Metro Parent.
Adorable footage from a 1965 “Candid Camera” episode shows that being hot for teacher isn’t new. “Candid Camera” was a hidden camera show that first aired in 1948 where people were secretly filmed for their reactions to uncomfortable situations.
What started out as a lighthearted class presentation quickly turned into a fabulous humanities lesson for all.
A teacher under the pseudonym Larry Lexicon has 1.8 million followers on TikTok, where they tune in to catch the funny-yet-inspirational interactions Lexicon has with his students.
Recently, Lexicon had his class rolling with his meticulously crafted PowerPoint explaining what certain Gen Z words mean.
“All year long I’ve been listening to you and making a list, which I’ve compiled here for you — the Gen Z Term Dictionary,” he told the class, saying that they should speak up if anything was inaccurate.
