JULY 17-23, 2019 UCW 23 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Forge your own path Zack Pinsent, 25, from Brighton, England, hasn't dressed in mod- ern clothing since he was 14 years old. Instead, he makes and wears clothes that were popular in the 1800s. "At 14, I made the symbolic decision to burn my only pair of jeans in a bonfire. It was a real turning point," Pinsent told Metro News. On a typical day, Pinsent wears a floral waistcoat and knee- high leather riding boots, along with a jacket with tails and a top hat. He explains that his obsession started when his family found a box of his great-grandfather's suits. He now researches, designs and sews clothing for himself and other his- tory buffs, to great response: "I've been all over the world, and people are inquisitive and appreciative," he said. [Metro News, 6/27/2019] People different from us A baby boy born in West Java, Indonesia, in November 2018 was given a most memorable name by his parents, Andi Cahya Saputra and Ella Karin. Eight-month-old Google was so named, Saputra told Indonesian media, because "Google has a great meaning ... Google is number one in the world, the site most visited by people." The Mirror reported Saputra told his own father he hopes his son will be- come "a useful person" and "help" a lot of people, while also explain- ing that they didn't want to "dilute" the essence of the boy's name by giving him a middle or surname. He's just Google. The baby's mom wasn't really on board with the idea until about three months after he was born. She said people ask if their next child will be named WhatsApp, but it doesn't bother her because they don't understand the meaning of the name. [The Mirror, 6/26/2019] Extreme Michael Wardian, 45, chose the hottest day of the year so far in Washington, D.C., to tackle a long- standing goal of his: He ran all the way around the Beltway — 89 miles. Wardian, of Arlington, Vir- ginia, started at 1:30 a.m. on June 29 and ran for almost 18 hours, ac- cording to Fox 5 DC. "You're like, 'I want to do this but it's never a good time,'" Wardian said. "So we just did it when we had the time." Temperatures on June 29 reached 96 degrees.

Question: I really enjoyed "Designated Survivor" for its attention to current events and thriller aspects. However, season 3 on Netflix is very off-putting to me. e foul language is totally uncalled for and unnecessary. Very disappointing. — Christina Matt Roush: Welcome to the world of streaming, where, unlike on broadcast networks like ABC ("Designated Sur- vivor's" home for its first two seasons), there are no content or standards re- strictions. Some might argue that the saltier language this season better re- flects the world in which these charac- ters operate, but there's no question that it's a shock to see these earnest charac- ters suddenly become potty-mouths. at said, I loved the addition of Julie White as the no-holds-barred campaign manager. She made the season for me. Question: "Yellowstone" on WGN America has so much over-the-top bad language. How can this be allowed? — Doris Matt Roush: Cable networks aren't subject to the same content restric- tions as the over-the-air broadcast channels, and in recent years — spurred largely by FX and AMC — ba- sic cable channels now regularly trum- pet the sorts of words they used to bleep. Advertisers don't seem to mind. But obviously, a number of viewers don't see this as an improvement.

Between "MasterChef," "Hell's Kitchen" and "24 Hours to Hell and Back," the always entertain- ing British foodie with the foul mouth — and occasional soft side — is the key ingredient to his full menu of five-star Fox shows. Jeers to "Keeping Up With the Kar- dashians" for being way too easy to keep up with. Given that the family members can't even sneeze without the internet reporting it, it's impos- sible to be surprised by the many breakups or business deals seen on their E! hit. ey are all living spoilers for their own show!
