Channing Tatum On Episode One Of ‘Speechless With Carly Fleischmann’

’Would you date a 21-year-old person with autism?’

According to the National Autism Association, about 40 percent of autistic children do not have the ability to talk. Although some will eventually develop speaking skills, some will never use language in a meaningful way. Others will use picture cards or sign language, and some learn to communicate through written or typed language. One inspiring woman with nonverbal autism has found her voice in the world and is using it to teach people about autism while getting them to laugh along the way. Meet Carly Fleischmann.


Fleischmann has nonverbal autism and never said a word until at the age of 11 when she shocked her family by typing the words “hurt” and “help” on a computer. This breakthrough encouraged them to help Fleischmann improve her communication skills through the written word. She’d eventually become a successful blogger and author. Now, she’s the host of a new talk show and just landed her first major guest, Channing Tatum.

Last week, the Magic Mike star sat down with the popular blogger for the first episode of her show, “Speechless with Carly Fleischmann.” Fleischmann conducts her interviews by writing questions on an iPad and they are read aloud by Siri. Although it may seem the gaps in communication would make for an awkward interview, Fleischmann is quick on her feet and her iPad, and hit it off with Tatum immediately. During the interview, Fleischmann hilariously tries to woo Tatum from his wife and and dared to ask him some personal questions about his former job as a stripper. In just ten days, the interview has been watched over 2,700,00 times, so it looks like Fleischmann has another hit on her hands.

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
