Things teens of past generations found thrilling seem to hold little meaning to those of Generation Z. Published in the journal Child Development, researchers analyzed survey responses from 8.3 million teenagers gathered between 1976 and 2016. The data uncovered that today's teens were much less likely to drive, work for pay, go on dates, have sex, or go out without their parents compared to other generations. For example, about 54 percent of high school students in 1991 reported having had sex, while only 41 percent of those in the early 2010s said the same. Study co-author and psychologist Jean Twenge says the changes are due to parenting, "teens themselves," the economy, fertility rates, and the fact that people are living longer. (Business Insider)
  • What's the most rebellious thing you ever did as a teen?
  • Imagine you have a 13-year-old child, what would you be more devastated to discover them doing: having sex or drinking alcohol?
  • Do you think kids today are more or less prepared for adult life by age 18 than you were?

CHRIS LONG is a defensive end for the Philadelphia Eagles. And he was in the news last month after he publicly supported a black teammate who was protesting the National Anthem.

He said HE'D never protest the anthem personally. But he thought it was important to support his teammate. Obviously it caused some controversy. But THIS shouldn't, because it's pretty great . . .

He and his wife Megan are both from Charlottesville, Virginia. That's where white supremacists clashed with Antifa protesters last month. And they were sad to see all that hatred and bigotry flooding into their hometown.

So yesterday, they announced they're doing something positive for the community . . . by donating over a third of his SALARY this year to set up scholarships for kids there.

He's donating his paychecks for the first six games of the season. His current base salary is $1 million, plus a bunch of bonuses. It's not clear if those are factored in or not. So it's at least $375,000, maybe more.

As a kid, he went to a really good private school where tuition is over $24,000 a year now. So he's working with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Virginia. And two kids will get free tuition, from sixth grade all the way through high school.

If you're ever in the hole financially, don't go out and waste money on lottery tickets. It's tempting, because one big win could solve all your problems. But it never works out . . . RIGHT?

A woman named Tiffany Hatfield lives near Orlando, and decided to evacuate to get out of the path of Hurricane Irma. (We're not sure how old she is, but she looks like she's in her 30s or early 40s.)

She headed north to stay with someone in Virginia. And on her way, she stopped at a gas station in North Carolina.

While she was there, she bought a $5 scratcher ticket. And in this case, it DID work out for her.

She ended up winning TEN GRAND. And the money couldn't have come at a better time. It turns out her house was damaged in the storm. So she's using the money to fix it up.

Just in case you need someone to tell you this, don't paint your entire face with pink glitter poster paint. Because, well, it's poster paint. Twitter user LeleTill posted pictures of herself completely covered in a violent shade of pink, and complained that it didn't wash off. "See you in court, Palmer Paint Products!" she wrote. She got a flood of replies from people who told her, gently and otherwise, that poster paint wasn't the same thing as face paint. She posted a follow-up photo, clean-faced and smiling, and said it was all a joke anyway.

Here's more proof for my theory that if ANY item in the world has a hole in it, some dude somewhere will try to have sex with it.

A guy was at the gym in Worms, in western Germany on Friday . . . grabbed one of those weight plates you put on a barbell . . . and tried to have sex with it.

And, of course, his junk got stuck.

Firefighters came to help, but they couldn't wriggle him out . . . so they had to saw the weight off. And it took them THREE HOURS of sawing to finally get him free.

Luckily for the guy, it was a small five-pound plate . . . if it had been one of those 45-pound plates, it might've taken DAYS.

As far as we know, the guy is doing okay.

"It" had another amazing weekend at the box office, taking in another $60 million. But it wasn't a great weekend for ALL horror.

Critics were confused by . . . and downright hostile to . . . Darren Aronofsky's "Mother!", which probably contributed to its $7.5 million opening take. That was the worst opening weekend for JENNIFER LAWRENCE, by the way.

Here's the Top 10 . . .

1. "It", $60 million. Up to $218.7 million in its 2nd week.

2. NEW: "American Assassin", $14.8 million.

3. NEW: "Mother!", $7.5 million.

One of America's most advanced nuclear submarines returned to port in Washington state this week flying a Jolly Roger alongside the Stars and Stripes. It seems everybody loved it, but nobody knew quite what it meant. A Scottish journalist, Ian Keddie, reports that it is a tradition dating back to World War I, when the commander of a British ship raised the iconic pirate flag to signal that his crew had sunk an enemy warship. The suggestion is that the U.S.S. Jimmy Carter pulled off a secret mission of some sort. We may never know. (FoxNews)

This was either a creative strategy to try to hide during a police chase . . . or a TERRIBLE strategy to get a job.

A 26-year-old guy named Jose Jimenez from Westwood, Massachusetts ran over a cop's foot when he sped off during a traffic stop last week. The police spotted him driving again on Tuesday, and the chase was on.

At one point, Jose managed to get a little distance from the cops. So he pulled into a parking lot, ditched his Toyota Camry, and ran into a cell phone store . . . where he started applying for a job.

And it wasn't a terrible hiding plan, because the manager took Jose back into his office for an interview.

The manager says he had no idea that Jose was on the run because, quote, "He introduced himself to me, cool as a cucumber. No sweaty hands, clean shirt, pretty well groomed."

But the interview didn't go great, because about halfway through, a police dog popped up at the window and started barking like crazy. The cops busted into the store and arrested Jose.

He's been hit with several charges.

There's a 50-year-old, filthy-rich guy named Marc Bell who lives in Boca Raton, Florida. And he made a lot of his money PEDDLING filth. He used to own "Penthouse" magazine. So judge him if you want, but check this out . . .

He's on the board of directors for a foster kids program. And about 70 of the kids had nowhere to go after their shelters got slammed by Hurricane Irma.

So this week, he and his wife invited all the kids to come stay with THEM in their $30 million MANSION.

It's about 27,000 square feet with eight bedrooms . . . 16 bathrooms . . . a pool . . . a basketball court . . . a home theater . . . and a game room that includes a pool table, air hockey, and a ton of arcade games.

They also hired a guitar player the other day to come do a sing-a-long. They brought manicurists in to do all the girls' nails. And they hired an entertainer named Bobby the Balloon Guy to perform.

It's not clear how long the kids are staying, but Marc and his wife say it was a no-brainer. It sounds like they'll be there at least until their shelters get fixed up and have power again.

If you want to help with repairs, there's a GoFundMe page where you can donate. Just search for "Help the Kids of S.O.S." on

It's not cheap to have a baby at a hospital these days. So if you're worried about the cost, maybe check out this Burger King in north Jersey. (???)

A couple in Denville Township, New Jersey called 911 around 7:30 P.M. last Friday when they couldn't make it to the hospital to have their baby. So they pulled over in a Burger King parking lot. (Denville is about 30 miles northwest of Manhattan.)

Two cops and some firefighters ended up delivering the baby right there in the parking lot. They had a boy, and everyone's doing fine.

Now here's the crazy part. The next day, the exact same thing happened AGAIN.

Another couple called 911 Saturday night when they couldn't make it to the hospital, and pulled over in the same Burger King parking lot. Then the SAME TWO COPS showed up and delivered that baby too.

The second couple also had a boy. We haven't seen the cops' names listed anywhere. But a police spokesman says they were very happy they were there to help both couples.

The National Toy Hall of Fame just released their newest list of nominees . . . and one of them is SAND. (???)

The basic idea behind that pick is you can't make sandcastles at the beach without it. And sandboxes have been popular for a long time.

This also isn't the first time they've made a generic pick like that. The STICK made it in back in 2008. The BALL got in one year later. And the CARDBOARD BOX was inducted way back in 2005.

The 12 toys nominated this year are sand . . . paper airplanes . . . Matchbox cars . . . My Little Pony . . . the board games "Risk" and "Clue" . . . the Wiffle ball . . . the Magic 8 Ball . . . PEZ dispensers . . . fake food . . . Transformers . . . and Uno cards.

Only two or three toys get inducted each year. Last year's picks were Dungeons & Dragons, Fisher Price Little People, and the swing. "Clue", Transformers, and Uno were also nominated last year, but didn't get in.

They'll announce this year's inductees on November 9th.

(Here's the list of all 62 toys that are already in the Hall of Fame.)

"Star Wars: Episode Nine" has a new director: It's J.J. Abrams, who directed "Episode Seven - The Force Awakens". He'll also serve as co-writer.

It was supposed to be directed by Colin Trevorrow . . . the guy who did "Jurassic World". But he either quit or was fired last week over creative differences.

The swap WILL impact the release date. "Episode Nine" was supposed to hit theaters in May of 2019, but now it's being pushed back seven months to December of that year.

"Star Wars: Episode Eight - The Last Jedi" is still hitting theaters this coming December. It was directed by Rian Johnson.

You'd think that APPLE, of all companies, would be able to do a presentation without technology failing them. And you would be wrong.

Yesterday Apple held their annual presentation where they unveil the new iPhones. And the hot new one this year is the iPhone X, which has a screen that covers the entire face of the phone, has wireless charging, and starts at $1,000.

But the killer feature of the new iPhone is that it doesn't unlock with a passcode or with your thumbprint . . . it uses FACIAL RECOGNITION to unlock for you.

But when Apple's Senior Vice President of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, tried to show off that feature onstage yesterday . . . it didn't work.

And yet millions of people will still pay $1,000 or more for this phone when it comes out on October 27th.

It's taken her a minute, but Kim Kardashian is letting Sharon Osbourne feel the full force of her disdain.
The Talk cohost recently referred to Kardashian as a "ho," and Kardashian tells E! that the comments were not only unfounded, they were "ridiculous."
  • "First of all, I think she said I said a quote about, 'I post nude photos in the name of feminism.' Never said that. So I think when people misquote you and then comment, it just sounds ridiculous," she told E! at Harper's BAZAAR event celebrating "ICONS By Carine Roitfeld" at The Plaza Hotel on Friday, September 8. "I post nude photos because I like how I look and I feel proud when I've lost all this baby weight and I post it because I feel like posting it and I feel powerful."
  • The mother of two (soon three via surrogate!) continued: "But I've never been like the 'free the nipple' kind of girl so...if I post a photo, I post it because I like how I look. So she kind of misquoted me on that and I thought it just looked really, like stupid."
  • Osbourne told The Telegraph on September 2nd: "Kim says she's doing everything in the name of feminism, but that's not feminism! Those girls live off their bodies, half of L.A. has been through them and everything they do from the sex tape to the plastic see-through dresses and the gym wear is about sex, not female progress."
  • She took it further, saying: "God bless them. If Kim wants to show off her body, fine. But that's not feminism, that's being a ho. And there's nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are."
  • Kardashian also addressed some of the rumors surrounding the third child she and Kanye West are expecting in January via a surrogate mother.
  • "I've definitely seen a lot of things, we've never confirmed anything," she told E!. "So, I think when we're ready to talk about it we will, and I think it's super invasive when people are just... So many details out there, and like I've never heard this, I've never heard this. Like whatever. We have not confirmed it, and that's that. I'll let you know when we're ready."
  • On Friday night, Kardashian turned heads with her brand new white-blond hair … and her envelope-pushing fashion statement. She stepped out at the Daily Front Row's Fashion Media Awards in a black leather bandeau, matching thong and high-waisted black leggings (sheer!)
  • In a nod to modesty, she donned a black leather blazer. Kardashian completed the outfit with clear PVC heels designed by her husband.

We're all waiting for the day when we can order up a pizza and get it delivered by drone, but this week they have more urgent matters to take care of. In this terrible hurricane season, drones have come into their own as a key tool for first responders. Dozens of unmanned aerial vehicles were deployed in Houston in response to Hurricane Harvey, and others are out in force across Florida. Evidence suggests that drones spot people in need of rescue faster than human search-and-rescue teams. They can deliver ropes and life jackets to areas too hazardous for human rescuers to enter. Once the immediate dangers are over, they will help assess damage to buildings, roads, bridges and power lines. The nonprofit Humanitarian Drones is already using them to help Houston agencies prepare for rebuilding.

"It" crushed the competition . . . and several box office records . . . with a $117.2 million haul this weekend. That's the biggest opening ever for a horror movie, or for any movie in the month of September.

It's also the third-biggest opening of the year, behind "Beauty and the Beast" ($174.8 million) and "Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2" ($146.5 million).

"It" also made $62 million overseas, for a global total of $179.2 million. If you invested in this flick, you're already counting your money . . . because it only cost $35 million to make.

"Home Again", starring REESE WITHERSPOON, was an EXTREMELY distant second, opening with just $9 million.

And CHARLIE SHEEN's "9/11" movie TANKED. It ran in 425 theaters and made $102,500 . . . which was good enough for 32nd place.

1. There's a couple in Washington state who've been married for 75 years. And their names are . . . Harvey and Irma Schluter. He turned 104 in July . . . she'll be 93 in November.

2. The Florida Marlins were playing the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night, and between one of the innings, the song the Braves played was . . . "Rock You Like a Hurricane" by the Scorpions.

Obviously, it was a mistake. The song is in the regular playlist, like it is at pretty much every other stadium . . . and someone just forgot to take it out. They apologized afterward.

3. There's a rumor going around that Hurricane Irma could cause a real-life SHARKNADO. Fortunately, it's not true . . . sharks can sense the pressure from a storm coming and will get the hell out of its way before it comes.

Credit monitoring company Equifax revealed yesterday (September 7th) that it was hit by a breach between mid-May and July that exposed sensitive information about 143 million Americans, including Social Security numbers, putting them at risk for identity theft. Equifax, which is one of the three major U.S. credit bureaus, said that also taken in the theft were names, birth dates, addresses and in some cases, driver's license numbers. Although Equifax discovered the breach on July 29th, this is the first time they've revealed it publicly and warned consumers. A website has been set up for people to check if their information may have been stolen, which also offers free credit monitoring for a year. You don't have to enroll in the credit monitoring to check your information. Consumers can also call 866-447-7559.

Because a new study found that Americans work HARDER than people in pretty much any other country.

And we say "pretty much" just because the study only looked at Europe and Japan, so we can't say for SURE we work harder than every single country . . . but if they'd looked at others, we'd probably beat them too.

The study found that Americans work an average of 137 hours more per year than people in Japan and at least 260 more than people in Europe. That's 17 more workdays than Japan and 33 more than Europe.

The study also found our productivity is up 400% from 1950.

There are approximately 270 million pumpkin spice foods and drinks on sale right now. You'd think that would mean we're all buying more of them than ever. But we're not.

According to a research company, the sales numbers on pumpkin spice products have flattened out . . . and that may be a sign that we've gotten BORED with them.

There are 49% more pumpkin spice products out this year than last year, but sales are only up 21%. That means we're not really buying what they're selling.

Fighting words! Sharon Osbourne is not here for Kim Kardashian West's brand of feminism.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph about her husband Ozzy Osbourne, The Talk co-host also found a way to slam the Kardashian family.
  • "Those girls live off their bodies. Half of L.A. has been through them, and everything they do from the sex tape to the plastic see-through dresses and the gym wear is about sex, not female progress," Osbourne said, arguing, "Kim says she's doing everything in the name of feminism, but that's not feminism!"
  • She wasn't finished. Osbourne went on to say that not only is Kardashian not a feminist, she's a "ho."
  • "Listen, God bless them. If Kim wants to show off her body, fine. But that's not feminism. That's being a ho," the British star reportedly said. "There's nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are."
  • Osbourne's comments come a day after Kim discussed feminism in Harper's Bazaar Arabia. She told the pub: "I said once before that I'm not really a feminist. But I feel I do a lot more than people that claim that they're feminist. To clarify what I said before: I feel in my soul I'm a feminist. I just don't need labels to make me feel or know what I am inside."
  • Gossip Cop points out that Osbourne is changing tack. She posted a nude selfie (since deleted), giving Kardashian a shout-out as her inspiration and writing: "@kimkardashian you inspired me! #liberated #thetalk.

OZZY OSBOURNE's wife SHARON may have been a little TOO candid in a recent interview, when she revealed the extent of her husband's cheating. Because she admitted that he wasn't just nailing the hairdresser . . . he had SIX women on the side.

And one of them was, well, a little YOUNG. I'm not saying ILLEGAL, but still. She said Ozzy's girlfriends included two masseuses, the family cook and, quote, "some Russian teenager." (???) Ozzy is, of course, NOT a teenager. He's 68.

She added, quote, "He had women in different countries. Basically, if you're a woman giving Ozzy either a back rub or a trolley of food, God help you."

But Sharon would also like you to know that they were all DOGS.

Quote, "None of these women were show ponies; he was doing it to fill the void in some way."

In the same interview, she said KIM KARDASHIAN isn't being a feminist by posing naked . . . she's being a HO. But she added, quote, "There's nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are."

In case you haven't seen this, dashcam footage of a traffic stop in Georgia has gone viral because the cop told a white woman that they "only shoot black people." This happened a year ago in a suburb of Atlanta but the video was just released because of an investigation.

The officer's talking to a passenger who tells him she's too nervous to put her hands down because of the police shootings. That's when he says, "But you're not black. Remember, we only kill black people. Yeah, we only kill black people, right?"

The cop's lawyer says his comments were taken out of context and that he was just "trying to de-escalate a situation." An internal review claimed the officer was trying to be sarcastic. Regardless, it's NOT the kind of thing you joke around about.

The police chief held a news conference yesterday and said the officer is being fired.

Of ALL the businesses to try to rob, this guy picked one of the absolute worst. Maybe THE worst.

A guy walked into an MMA STUDIO in Burbank, California on Tuesday night, pulled out a gun, and demanded money.

So an MMA instructor named Jacobe Powell walked up to the guy, knocked the gun out of his hand, roughed him up a little, and pinned him down until the cops arrived.

The cops arrested the guy for assault with a deadly weapon . . . but first they had to take him to the hospital to get treatment for the beating he took.
