Letterboxd 

is a service whereby you can record your views on films, create lists, share views with other film lovers, and other such features. One of those features of Letterboxd is allowing its users to rate the films that they’ve seen, and also to report the times when they watch the film again. So, they took a look at which films people watch again and again and again. The company isolated the films in its database that had been watched five times or more by at least 25 different members. It’s certainly not a definitive list – who doesn’t watch “Airplane!” every time it comes up when you’re flipping channels. And the list is further skewed by seasonal films that get rewatched every year, and by franchise movies, where people are likely to rewatch the whole series. So, with all those disclaimers in mind, here are The 50 Most Obsessable Movies The Most Letterboxd Subscribers Have Watched More Than Five Times:

DRUNK SHOPPING

A recent survey on Finder.com revealed that almost half of all Americans who regularly drink alcohol each week also make spontaneous purchases while drunk. The average amount spent is $139, but the total can vary significantly depending on who’s drunk-shopping. Men on average spend more than four times as much as women. And among both men and women, millennials were most likely to succumb to the practice. The most common things bought online while drunk:Women:–

Are we going to war with North Korea? Maybe, but Trump says that's not his preference at all.

If recent ship movements and this week’s Capitol briefing of the Senate didn’t convince you where our country could be headed with North Korea, wonder no more. President Trump himself is saying there's a chance that a "major, major conflict" could break out between the U.S. and North Korea.

In an interview with Reuters, the President insisted that he wants to resolve tensions with North Korea through diplomacy, but he adds "it's very difficult." He praised the Chinese president for "trying very hard" to bring about a peaceful resolution.

Trump also calls President Xi Jingping [[she JEEN-peeng]] a "very good man" who doesn't want to see turmoil and death in the region. “I have established a very good personal relationship with President Xi," Trump noted. "I really feel that he is doing everything in his power to help us with a big situation.”

  • As part of that, you might recall some months ago when Mr. Trump had a phone call with Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen – a call that upset China quite a lot. And at the time, Trump dismissed their objections. Now? Not so much. When asked about further contact with Tsai over North Korea, Trump offered, “"So I wouldn't want to be causing difficulty right now for him," Trump continued. "I think he's doing an amazing job as a leader and I wouldn't want to do anything that comes in the way of that. So I would certainly want to speak to him first."

Massachusetts teens being hailed as heroes for keeping a man from jumping off a bridge.

A pair of 16-year-old boys from Lowell, Massachusetts are getting credit for being heroes after helping save a stranger’s life recently. Justin Peterson and Jesse Carrier were planning to meet up at the Bridge Street bridge when Justin noticed a man on the wrong side of the railing.

The guys talked to the man, asking him to join them at a nearby Dunkin’ Donuts to get some coffee and keep talking, and the stranger agreed. But as the teens walked away, the guy went back to the bridge and back over the railing. Thankfully, Jesse and Justin were right there, so they grabbed the man and pulled him back to the safe side of the railing, and waited with him until an ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital.

The teens got a message from the man’s sister, letting them know how thankful his family is for their heroic actions. “I feel that no one should have to feel how he was feeling,” Justin explains, “I’m glad that I helped him and glad that he’s alright.”

New report reveals the states with the best and worst drivers on the road

  • According to the study by insurance marketplace Everquote, folks in the Northeast are guilty of being the worst drivers, while those in the West and Midwest, mostly adhere to driving laws
  • Montana drivers are rated the best, with a safe driving score of 90
  • Drivers in Rhode Island are rated the worst with a safe driving score of just 70

While most people love to get behind the wheel of their car, we all know that driving can be dangerous, with some drivers practicing some risky behavior behind the wheel. Well, a new report is out that reveals which parts of the country have the worst drivers, and somehow I don’t think many of us will be all that shocked.

According to the study by insurance marketplace Everquote, folks in the Northeast are guilty of being the worst drivers, since they tend to speed the most while using their cellphones. If you want to feel safer on the road, it’s best to limit your driving to areas in the West and Midwest, where drivers mostly adhere to driving laws.

More specifically, drivers in Montana are rated the best, with a safe driving score of 90. Montana drivers do use their cell phones behind the wheel as much as drivers in any other state, but a lot less of them are speeding, with only 17% of drives in the state involving speeding, and 10% involving hard turns and risky acceleration.

Best Driving States in the U.S.

  1. Montana – (safe driving score of 90)
  2. Wyoming – (89)
  3. Alaska – (88)
  4. South Dakota – (87)
  5. North Dakota – (87)

On the flipside, drivers in Rhode Island are by far the worst, with an overall safe driving score of just 70. In fact, 57% of all Rhode Island drives involve speeding, while 38% of trips involve a person on a phone and 29% involve hard breaking.

Worst Driving States in the U.S.

  1. Rhode Island – (70)
  2. Connecticut – (71)
  3. Pennsylvania – (73)
  4. New Jersey – (73)
  5. New Hampshire – (74)
