The paper quotes Sarah as saying, "While I was thrilled at the success of my monologue, I remember spotting her in the audience, I really do, and I remember seeing that look on her face and my heart sank. There was a person under there. A couple days later I wrote her a letter apologizing, felt awful and I never heard back, I certainly wouldn't expect to anyways. I regretted the jokes not years later, but kind of immediately,' she admitted. 'Here I am, 14 years later, telling you, Paris, that I am really sorry. I was then and I am, much more completely and with far more understanding I think, now.''
Paris tells E! News, "I was not expecting an apology. I wasn't asking for one, that was just my sister, you know, being very protective and wanting an apology. So, yeah, I was very shocked when I got it. I really just appreciate it so much, and I'm glad that her comedy has grown and she realizes that it's not nice to make fun of people. And I think everyone learns that in life. Sarah is hilarious, like I've listened to her comedy and I've always been a big fan. Well, before that moment, and always just thought she was so funny, but not when she's making fun of people. I think she's just funny when she's just being her funny self."

Zombie Alert: Fox News says one of Nostradamus's predictions is going viral. The 16th century French scientist predicted a zombie apocalypse in 2021 with this passage: “Few young people: half−dead to give a start. Dead through spite, he will cause the others to shine, And in an exalted place some great evils to occur: Sad concepts will come to harm each one, Temporal dignified, the Mass to succeed. Fathers and mothers dead of infinite sorrows, Women in mourning, the pestilent she−monster: The Great One to be no more, all the world to end.”
The Center for Disease Control responded to the prediction by saying your zombie preparedness kit should include ....
Water (1 gallon per person per day)
Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery-powered radio, etc.)
Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)

A new study by PLOS reveals that men and women prefer different angles when posting selfies on social media. Behavioral researchers studied 2,000 selfies before concluding that women prefer taking Instagram pictures from high angles while men prefer snapping Instagram selfies from the front. Neither men nor women are likely to take Instagram selfies from low angles.
The results are drastically different when studying Tinder. Women are more likely to snap Tinder selfies from the front while men tend to take Tinder pictures from low angles.
Lead researcher Alessandro Soranzo says, "We all generally look better when we take selfies from the top left angle of our face. However, my research also showed that males using dating sites generally took selfies placing the camera slightly below their head, but still showing part of their left cheek. This may be for various reasons, one of them being to seem taller and more confident to others on the said dating site."
