Woman jokes about unfortunate pre-pandemic tattoo that left her ‘mortified’

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (NEXSTAR) – While some people worry about their tattoos fading over time, one Kentucky woman’s ink has aged worse than she could have imagined in less than a year, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Leah Holland, of Georgetown, won a TikTok challenge for the “dumbest tattoo” and explained how things went wrong after finally getting an inspirational message from a friend written under the skin of her forearm.

“I’d wanted it for a couple years,” Holland said. “It basically means like, being true to

Can Exercise Make You More Creative?

If you often exercise, there’s a good chance you also tend to be more creative, according to an interesting new study of the links between physical activity and imagination. It finds that active people come up with more and better ideas during tests of their inventiveness than people who are relatively sedentary, and suggests that if we wish to be more innovative, we might also want to be movers and shakers.

Science already offers plenty of evidence that physical activity influences how we think. Many studies in people and animals show that our brains change in response to physical

Rob Liefeld on Crafting R-Rated ‘Deadpool’ Art to Match the Movies

“This has to do with the severity of severed limbs,” says Liefeld, who notes that 30 years ago, Marvel was not owned by Disney, and he’s more aware than ever of the all-ages nature of comics and movies.

So, Liefeld took a sigh of relief when he got his artwork approved, and then took another sigh of relief on Wednesday when Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige re-affirmed to reporters that the upcoming third Deadpool 3 will be R-rated.  In fact, Deadpool 3 was the only film the studio would consider making R-rated, at least for now, said Feige.

Now the owner, Daniel Chavez says they’re ready

Stephen King talks about crime, creativity and new novel

NEW YORK (AP) — Stephen King doesn’t think of himself as a horror writer.

“My view has always been you can call me whatever you want as long as the checks don’t bounce,” King told The Associated Press during a recent telephone interview. “My idea is to tell a good story, and if it crosses some lines and it doesn’t fit one particular genre, that’s good.”

Readers may know him best for “Carrie,” “The Shining” and other bestsellers commonly identified as “horror,” but King has long had an affinity for other kinds of narratives, from science fiction and prison drama

Rajie Cook, Who Helped Make Sense of Public Spaces, Dies at 90

Rajie Cook often joked that museumgoers were more likely to encounter his artwork in their travels than a portrait by Matisse or a landscape by van Gogh. They saw it whenever they took an elevator to an upper gallery or stopped in the restroom.

In 1974 Cook & Shanosky Associates, a design firm started by Mr. Cook and Don Shanosky a few years earlier, won a contract to develop a set of symbols that could be universally understood, and that would efficiently convey the kinds of information people in a public place might need — which restroom was for which

Leah Holland’s Pre-Pandemic Tattoo Wins For Worst Timing Ever

Leah Holland said she pondered her self-affirmation tattoo for two years before she finally got it. If only she had waited just a bit longer.

Competing in a TikTok challenge for “the dumbest tattoo you’ve ever gotten,” Holland showed off her ill-advised ink. And it’s a winner. (Watch her TikTok video below.)

The tattoo, Holland said in the clip, was meant to reinforce “being true to your self and real and not pretending to be something you’re not.”

But in the times ahead, it would mean something entirely different.

Holland, 25, of Georgetown, Kentucky, said she got the tattoo on
