Though it is too early to tell wether it's the real Jason Momoa. He does like older women.

No, because she is being scammed and used for money laundering
What’s to stop her not actually putting the money from her account into the recipient account? She might be playing the long game, knows he’s not who he claims to be and is waiting to earn his trust so he puts a rather large amount of money in in one go at which point she then does a runner.

Why are the police investigating that? Does Jason Momoa feel threatened by a granny?

Edit: Reading between the lines, it may be an impostor doing a new form of money laundering scam.
Yes. It's definitely a poorly edited headline.

Man wearing superhero costume rescues person from burning home on Halloween

/he was dressed as Homelander from The Boys.

https://www.wthr.com/article/featur...home/531-61b58a54-4b2e-4a4e-ae7c-6217312fd1f3

"The man in the costume is Chris Taylor.
“There’s a show on Amazon Prime called 'The Boys.' I love it,” he said when asked about the costume.
That’s what Taylor ironically dressed up as for Halloween with his children and fiancé. Life then imitated art as they headed to a party."

'Access Denied'.
That link doesn't work for me.

I think it goes without saying that this article is nsfw.

The Distinguished Medieval Penis Investigators

https://narratively.com/the-distinguished-medieval-penis-investigators/

"In fourteenth-century England, one of the only ways a woman could get a divorce was if her husband was impotent. But first, she had to prove it in court.

In the year 1370, Tedia Lambhird filed for divorce from John Saundirson, claiming that her husband was impotent. Next, she had to prove it. Fortunately for Tedia, she had eyewitnesses. "

Their marriage must have been a real let-down for her when he couldn't rise to the occasion.

World's Largest Collection of Smallest Versions of Largest Things

this place sounds like it would be a fun trip to see.

https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/worlds-largest-collection-of-smallest-versions-of-largest-things

---------------------------------------------------------------
ERIKA NELSON, CREATOR OF THE World’s Largest Collection of the World’s Smallest Versions of the World’s Largest Things, travels the United States looking for “monsters of the road” (things like the world’s largest ketchup bottle or ball of yarn). She then photographs them and makes a World’s Smallest Version of said World’s Largest Thing.

Once Nelson researches, visits, and photographs a World’s Largest Thing, she then makes a miniature replica of the “thing.” When possible, Nelson will bring the tiny version back to the enormous structure that inspired it and snap a photo of the two items together. The little replicas and photographs are then displayed in the museum and online.
