Though he’s older, his intelligence and sound judgment allow him to continue solving crimes — even if there are those in the small town who think he should butt out.

Can’t Get a Date

Being famous can be a burden. Just ask UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who hoped to use the dating site Tinder to find companionship. Unfortunately, her efforts at doing so, while also keeping an anonymous profile, did not work. Thus, Rousey stays at home with her dog rather than going on dates. She told Sports Illustrated: “The only person I’m making out with is my dog.”

Note to Ronda: Under the category that says occupation, don’t put “kicking ass.”

No More Tang

Remember when Tang was the drink of the astronauts? Well, seems the times have changed. Samantha Cristoforetti, who is an Italian European Space Agency astronaut, recently managed to use an espresso machine while in outer space operating in zero-gravity.

Ah, the lengths that Starbucks will go to find outlier franchises.
