A real-life Red Skull, a creepy Emma Watson movie, and the (near) future of space travel—all that and more in this week's 15 Things! Read on for your weekly dose of man knowledge, gents!


Emma Watson's upcoming movie The Circle, which tackles life in a society that monitors your every move, is the right amount of scary, more so when you realise that this could be our reality very, very soon. Check out the trailer here:


We've all wished for an extra hour to get things done (or an extra hour to sleep in). The good thing is you might just get your wish in the near future, as scientists predict that the Earth might have 25-hour days soon due to its slowing orbit. Let's hope we'll still be alive when it happens!


The honorable Senator Manny Pacquiao has passed a bill proposing every last Monday of January be a regular holiday to commemorate "National Bible Day." We don't really need another holiday, but hey, we could always use one!


Stock up on your greens: Pantone has selected a cheery yellow green shade called Greenery to be the color of the year for 2017. Fresh, vibrant, and full of life, it's the perfect pick-me-upper we need after a crazy 2016!


There's hope for humanity just yet: a hardware store in Texas is getting praise after hiring both a disabled air force vet and his adorable service dog, Charlotte. Charlotte even got her own uniform! That's A+ service, right there.


Ecstasy isn't just for wild parties: the US FDA is stating trials to use the drug to cure post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). If trials go well, the drug could be legalised in as early as 2021.


Forbes
 has released its list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood. On the top: Johnny Depp, whose latest movies have spectacularly flopped at the box office. Following Depp are Will Smith, Channing Tatum, Will Ferrell, and—surprise—George Clooney.

Conor McGregor's coming to Westeros! The Irish UFC star has been slated to appear on Game of Thrones, but his role's still kept under wraps. Got any guesses?


The Geminid meteor shower will be happening next week, so if you're into that, you should head up to a quiet area away from Manila's lights and pollution. Don't forget your blanket and a cuddle buddy!


Ever dreamed of exploring outer space? Good news: a company named Moon Express has been permitted by the US government to explore the moon for resources, and founder Naveen Jain predicts that people can travel to the moon for fun by 2026. Talk about putting the "moon" in honeymoon!

In the mood for some horror? The Autopsy of Jane Doe looks promising. Watch the trailer here:


Not up for horror? A good old superhero flick should do the trick. Check out the first official teaser for Spider-Man: Homecoming here:


In a bid to reduce air pollution, Paris made its public transport system free of charge for everyone. The city also prohibited cars with even-numbered plates from zipping around the streets. You think this'll work here in the PH?


Check out Burger King Israel's holiday offering: a Whopper with two perfectly glazed donuts for buns! It's called the "SufganiKing," and the donuts are stuffed with ketchup instead of the usual bavarian filling. Get in our tummies!


If we could permanently look like a fictional character for the rest of your life, we'd probably pick Batman. Venezuelan Henry Rodriguez, though, went for something a little different—the 37-year-old dad has undergone several facial modifications to look like Captain America super villain Red Skull. Walang basagan ng trip, but...why Red Skull, though?
