Show Notes for Thursday April 19, 2018


Dear John,

I'm 40 and single. I've tried dating websites and never had much luck, so last Christmas I decided to change my profile. I typed up what I think women want and hyped up my personal info. Then I used a photo that is 10 years old. Now I have several women that are talking with me online, which has been fun, but I have one that wants to meet up in person and I'm afraid to meet her. The photo is a photo of me, but it was when I was about 30. The stuff I typed is not really me, but with this lady I have connected pretty well. I have been my true-self to her and we have made a connection. Do I tell her the truth before we meet? Do I close the account and move on?

Signed – DullDatingDude.

A Florida woman who was arrested last month on drug possession charges blamed the cocaine found in her purse on the wind. 26-year-old Kennecia Posey was one of two passengers in a car that was swerving in the roadway when it was stopped by Fort Pierce police. According to the police report, an officer approached the car and smelled an odor of marijuana coming from inside. During a search of the car, the officer found cocaine and marijuana in separate bags inside a purse that Posey had on her lap. When questioned about the drugs, Posey admitted that the marijuana was hers. The cocaine was a different story. Posey said, “I don't know anything about any cocaine,” and added “It's a windy day. It must have flown through the window and into my purse.” Posey was booked into the county jail on one felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. (

Fans of the galaxy far, far away will now have a chance to experience life in space firsthand, thanks to the first-ever luxury "space hotel." For a mere $9.5 million, that is. At the Space 2.0 summit in San Jose, the company Orion Span debuted the Aurora space station, dubbed the first "luxury hotel" in space. It holds six people at a time, including two crew members, and takes guests on 12-day-long trips. The station will travel 200 miles into space circling Earth every 90 minutes-- that means 16 sunrises and sunsets every day. The company is now taking fully refundable deposits of $80,000 per person for trips beginning in 2022. The payment covers an expedited three month training period, partially online and partially at the company's training facility in Houston, to ready the guests for life in space.
Activities and amenities include:
  • Views of the northern and southern aurora
  • Research experiments like growing food in orbit
  • A "virtual reality experience"
  • Access to high speed wifi
"This is an exciting frontier and Orion Span is proud to pave the way," said Orion Span CEO and founder Frank Bunger in a press release. Orion Span also conducts space research and is developing space condos.

MOMENT OF DUH:By (Find Funding For College)
55-year-old John Bradley Kane was arrested for insurance fraud after detectives said he lied about a Hooters sign falling on his foot. Back in November, Kane retained an attorney to file an insurance claim against Hooters' insurer, Liberty Mutual, after he claimed he was struck in the foot by an “o” from a Hooters sign that had blown off the wall during Hurricane Irma. But according to the manager, Kane and some friends entered the store with the fallen sign and asked for food and drinks in exchange for the stolen “o.” When employees did not cave to their demands, they left the store with the sign. The manager showed detectives surveillance video that shows the sign fall onto the sidewalk without hitting anyone. The “o” remained in the same spot until a man identified as Kane picked it up and moved it to the rear door of the restaurant. After it was determined he lied about the incident, detectives arrested Kane for insurance fraud less than $20,000. (

A man rushed to the hospital with an excruciating headache after participating in a chili-pepper-eating contest may have triggered a hot medical discovery. Doctors who assessed him wondered what could have caused the massive pain in his head. After excluding a life-threatening bleed and a tear of the arteries in his neck, they were left with a more bizarre explanation: the chili peppers. The man had taken part the pepper-eating contest earlier in the day, during which he had eaten a "Carolina Reaper," one of the hottest varieties of peppers on Earth. After scanning his head, doctors found that several of his brain’s arteries had narrowed. They diagnosed him with "reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome," a rare side effect associated with some medications. Fortunately, the patient improved. A second scan five weeks after showed his brain's arteries had returned to normal. However the condition isn’t always harmless, it has previously been linked to stroke. The man's symptoms included a severe "thunderclap headache," dry heaves and neck pain, but a thunderclap headache can also occur by itself. So should people avoid spicy foods? "We would not advise against eating hot peppers at this time, but we would recommend the public be cautious about these adverse effects. Seek medical attention immediately if [you] develop sudden headaches after eating hot peppers," Dr. Kulothungan Gunasekaran from the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit that was behind the report told ABC News. Since cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome has previously occurred without an identifiable cause, doctors can’t be sure eating peppers was to blame. But they do think it's plausible that it caused the man's symptoms in this case. Though it may have spiced up the doctors' day, it's something they're unlikely to see again. The report, published in BMJ Case Reports, is the first that links hot peppers to reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome. Gunasekaran was unable to comment on exactly how common this effect might be. "Unfortunately we don’t have any data as there is no randomized control trial in this field," he said. There have been other reports about the possible harmful effects of spices. In 2012, doctors in Turkey reported that a patient had suffered a heart attack after taking an excessive number of cayenne pepper pills for slimming. Another study found that capsaicin -– the active ingredient in peppers -– could increase heart rate and blood pressure. These findings led doctors to suggest that capsaicin might be "vasoactive," meaning it affects how blood vessels function. That could be how the pepper may have caused this man's headache, by constricting the vessels in his head. Conversely, some patients are prescribed capsaicin for pain associated with conditions like arthritisdiabetic neuropathy and muscle aches. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics even found that it was effective in treating headaches -- although that might not work for the man at the pepper-eating contest.
