Fox News' Lauren Green had a very AWKWARD interview with religious scholar Reza Aslan, author of "Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth."
Researchers say optimists handle stress better. So while that's an argument for being an optimist, what about their counterparts?
Here are the Top Good Things About Being a Pessimist.
Who cares, really? I mean this list is just going to suck, anyway.
You'll never drunkenly assume people want to see you shirtless at age 70.
Every time you go to the doctor you think you're dying, so you mostly get good news.
You can end boring philosophical discussions about whether the glass is half-empty of half-full by taking the glass, smashing it on the bar, then bawling about how God is dead.
You don't have to bother with far-fetched hopes that the economy will actually turn around while Obama is in office.
You never have any delusions that the Hooters waitress is actually laughing at your lame jokes because she thinks you're funny, and not because she's angling for a big tip.
Never getting your hopes up means never being depressed when you leave the bar alone.
Never having to workout, because what's the point?
Syfy has already started working on the upcoming "Sharknado" sequel, and sources tell TMZ that IAN ZIERING will be back, but he'll be the ONLY returning cast member.
In other words, TARA REID is getting a pink slip.
Tara played the estranged wife of Ian's character. Her character survived a crazy attack when SHARKS BROKE INTO HER HOUSE. There's no word why she isn't coming back . . . if this rumor is true.
For what it's worth, Tara Tweeted, quote, "There is no script for 'Sharknado 2' . . . Until I read it then I will make a decision, but everyone that's saying I got cut, that's not true. Liars."
Ian and Tara both banked $50,000 for the first "Sharknado". It's probably safe to assume that Ian would make a lot more for the sequel . . . but there's no official word on anything at this point.
By the way, Regal movie theaters will be hosting MIDNIGHT showings of "Sharknado" at about 200 of their theaters across the country THIS FRIDAY NIGHT. Tickets will cost $12.50 each.
