Have a Willie Nice Weekend, Meet the Cast of Twin Peaks, Eat All the Tacos, Get Wings at the Red Bull Air Show and More.

Emile Ratelband, a 69-year-old man from the Netherlands, has filed a lawsuit against the government to change his birth year from 1949 to 1969, because he wants to legally be recognized as a 49-year-old.

His motive? He wants to pick up girls on Tinder because according to himself, he is “a young god.”

He says it’s the same as changing genders or changing names. Um, is it?

The judge thinks that legally changing his age would legally delete that part of his life, and that’s not ethical is it?

Well, while you’re thinking about just how bizarre this is, don’t forget to check out the below activities for a spectacular weekend in Dallas. Because if you miss out, you’ll later realize you can’t turn back the clock and get a redo. — Claire Lin
