Mark Wahlberg is no stranger to making headlines. Perhaps a more modern term to describe his popularity is that he's an expert at going viral. The actor, producer, writer, and business owner is always on a big or little screen promoting his latest project in whatever form.

Mr. Wahlberg shocked the world recently with his announcement that he, like many folks, is moving out of California. The actor said that he's moved his family to Nevada so that his kids 'can have a better life.' Nevada is a good state, but it isn't Idaho.
