“Mario Kart” Makes You a Better Driver (Confirmed)

A new study out of Hong Kong found that playing video games like “Mario Kart” actually make you a better driver in REAL life.

The researchers say it’s because they train your brain to make decisions that are quick, but also super precise. And those skills translate over once you’re in a real car.

Whatever. I WISH I could throw turtle shells and giant banana peels at other drivers. Then maybe they’d respect me.

Now that it’s October, you’re probably already planning your Halloween costume.

Just kidding . . . you’ll be scrambling to buy something crappy and over-priced at a crowded Halloween store at 6:00 P.M. on the night of Halloween, just like the rest of us.

But if you DO feel like getting a jump on things, here are the two big costume trends this year. It’s according to Pinterest though, so take that for what it’s worth.

  1. Group costumes. Instead of everyone doing their own thing, you pick an idea for a bunch of people, and everyone sticks to the theme.
    It can be anything . . . Mario Kart, “The Walking Dead”, the Kardashians . . . whatever.
  2. Throwback pop culture costumes. And the ’90s are hot . . . Pinterest says ’90s costumes are 500% more popular than they were last year.
    Think boy bands, “Scream”,the Spice Girls, “Clueless”, “Ace Ventura” . . . you get it.
