Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake shared some truly wholesome pics from their golf day

The day consisted of 99% dancing and 1% actual golf.

Spreading joy and swinging clubs.

There’s BFFs, and then there’s Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake.

Their friendship (of nearly 18 years, by the way) is the stuff of wholesome pop culture legend. From goofy music videos to hilarious SNL sketches, Fallon and Timberlake always appear to take such enthusiastic and genuine joy in one another. Which may or may not make Timberlake’s wife Jessica Biel a tad jealous.

When the duo went out for a few rounds of golf in Las Vegas (according to Today), the two seemed to bring out their inner kids once again.The day consisted of jumping, dancing, chest bumping, shooting hoops (wait, which sport is happening here?), rolling around in the grass, a few sit-ups … oh yeah, and they also golfed, Timberlake assured in the caption of his Instagram post.


Timberlake’s video is set to Leo Sayer’s “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing,” which sums up his relationship with Fallon in a nutshell.

They were also seen applying sunscreen on one another. Because everyone knows that real friends don’t let other friends get sunburnt.

Fallon posted his own video to Instagram, set to Greg Street’s “Good Day.”

Seriously, it looks like a bunch of 6-year-old boys galloping around in a field, not men well into their 40s hangin' out on a golf course. And I mean that in the best way.

Timberlake seemed to be in particularly good form that day, despite the shenanigans. After knocking the ball closest to the hole during the 19th hole shootout, he quickly dropped the mic—or rather, club—and proceeded to show us all how it was no big deal really with a bunch of shrugs.

Ever the loving hype man, Fallon wouldn’t stop cheering his buddy on.


8amgolf, the tournament being held, wrote on its own page “find yourself a partner who knows how to celebrate.”

Though 8amgolf announced football players Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes II as the game’s champions of the day, Fallon and Timberlake are clearly the MVPs of bromance. And we love them for it.

May all our friendships be as full of silly, fun and childlike antics as a day of golf with Jimmy and Justin.

Dad takes 7-week paternity leave after his second child is born and is stunned by the results

"These past seven weeks really opened up my eyes on how the household has actually ran, and 110% of that is because of my wife."

@ustheremingtons/TikTok

There's a lot to be gleaned from this.

Participating in paternity leave offers fathers so much more than an opportunity to bond with their new kids. It also allows them to help around the house and take on domestic responsibilities that many new mothers have to face alone…while also tending to a newborn.

All in all, it enables couples to handle the daunting new chapter as a team, making it less stressful on both parties. Or at least equally stressful on both parties. Democracy!

TikTok creator and dad Caleb Remington, from the popular account @ustheremingtons, confesses that for baby number one, he wasn’t able to take a “single day of paternity leave.”

This time around, for baby number two, Remington had the privilege of taking seven weeks off (to be clear—his employer offered four weeks, and he used an additional three weeks of PTO).

The time off changed Remington’s entire outlook on parenting, and his insights are something all parents could probably use.

Millenial names are now "old" names.

You can’t turn back the hands of time and so it’s impossible to avoid being labeled “old” by younger generations, no matter how hard you try. For many of us, our names are tied to the times when we were born and can start to sound really dated, no matter how fashionable they were at one point.

TikTokker Amber Cimotti found this out the hard way when her daughter noted that she has an “old” person's name.

“My daughter told me the name Ashley or Amanda — or my name is Amber — are like old people names and I never thought about it this way,” Amber explained in a video with over 3 million views.

Christine Kesteloo has one big problem living on a cruise ship.

A lot of folks would love to trade lives with Christine Kesteloo. Her husband is the Chief Engineer on a cruise ship, so she gets to live on the boat pretty much for free as the “wife on board.” For Christine, life is a lot like living on a permanent vacation.

“I live on a cruise ship for half the year with my husband, and it's often as glamorous as it sounds,” she told Insider. “After all, I don't cook, clean, make my bed, do laundry or pay for food.“

Living an all-inclusive lifestyle seems like paradise, but it has some drawbacks. Having access to all-you-can-eat food all day long can really have an effect on one’s waistline. Kesteloo admits that living on a cruise ship takes a lot of self-discipline because the temptation is always right under her nose.

Woman shows her misbehaving cat to 'the trenches'

You always hear about a "bad dog," giving the furry goofballs a reputation for getting into mischief, but what about bad cats. Not all cats are angels just lounging around the house until someone gives them food while fanning them with a giant palm leaf. Some cats have a sketchy "catigree" and every once in a while they let that wild streak show. When that happens, what is a cat owner to do?

A cat mom that goes by the user name Lambo Licia on Instagram posted a video showing exactly how she gets her cat in line when he's misbehaving. No, it's not with a spray bottle. She shows him what life is like in "the trenches." You know, the area of town where homeless cats roam and cat burglars have real whiskers and thumbs that don't work, leaving a strange fish smell wherever they lurk.

If Scared Straight: Cat Edition was an actual thing, Mega, the orange tabby would be the first to turn his life around. He looks absolutely petrified from all of the unruly cat behavior he sees out the window and his mom's commentary.

College students use AI to decode ancient scroll burned in Mount Vesuvius

“Some of these texts could completely rewrite the history of key periods of the ancient world."

When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 C.E., it buried entire cities in volcanic materials. While Pompeii is the most famous site affected by the natural disaster, the nearby villa of Herculaneum was also laid to waste—including over 800 precious scrolls found inside Herculaneum’s library, which were carbonized by the heat, making them impossible to open and recover their contents.

Which brings us to the Vesuvius challenge, started by computer scientist Brent Seales and entrepreneurs Nat Friedman and Daniel Gross in March 2023. The contest would award $1 million in prizes to whoever could use machine learning to successfully read from the scrolls without damaging them.

On February 5, the prize-winning team was announced.

Shaquille O'Neal retired from pro basketball in 2011, but he's still one of the most famous players ever.

Fame comes with a lot of challenges, but it also comes with some pretty obvious perks. There's the money that frequently follows fame, of course, but there's also the special treatment people automatically offer you.

Some famous folks might revel in that special treatment and some might even express gratitude for it. But occasionally, you find a celebrity who refuses it altogether.

Take basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal, for instance.
