Show Notes for Thursday May 31, 2018


Dear John,

A friend from work invited me to a pool party but I don't like how I look in a swimming suit. Everyone else will be wearing their two piece slinky suits and looking great. I'll be wearing my pup tent one piece and looking like a whale. Would it be rude for me to not go? I told her I didn't think I could make it, but she has been pretty insistent about me going. Should I just tell her I don't like how I look in a swimming suit? Should I tell her I'll go and ge “sick” that day? That would probably happen anyway. I'm getting sick just thinking about it. I'm glad that she wants to hang out, so I kind of want to go since she asked, but I'm not sure this is the right thing for me. What should I do?

Irked by a delay in the take-off of a Mumbai bound flight, a 37-year-old man allegedly under the influence of alcohol inflicted self-injury by using a pen to stab himself after a verbal spat with airline officials. The passenger was scheduled to board Air India's 2.30 a.m. Mumbai flight. However, when the flight was delayed for about three hours he questioned the airline officials, which led to a verbal duel. The man told the officials that he ran the risk of missing his connecting flight at Mumbai and, in a seeming fit of rage, he took out a pen and punched his stomach, causing bleeding. The passenger was taken to a hospital within the airport premises for treatment and the flight later departed without him. (

The phrase "rule of thumb" is derived from an old English law which stated that you couldn't beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb.

The term "the whole 9 yards" came from WWII fighter pilots in the South Pacific. When arming their airplanes on the ground, the .50 caliber machine gun ammo belts measured exactly 27 feet, before being loaded into the fuselage. If the pilots fired all their ammo at a target, it got "the whole 9 yards."

A Victoria, Australia farmer accused of murdering a man who ran over his dog has claimed his shotgun went off accidentally when he tripped on an eggplant. 55-year-old Angelo Russo is accused of fatally shooting David Calandro during a dispute after Calandro ran over Russo's dog at a Goulburn Valley farm. Russo was reportedly holding a shotgun and walking towards Calandro’s utility vehicle when he says he tripped on an eggplant and the gun accidentally went off. But the prosecution alleges the 55-year-old walked up to Calandro and deliberately shot him in the head because Russo was angry about his dog Harry being run over. The trial in the Victorian Supreme Court is still ongoing.

Maine state police reported that three men were arrested in Lebanon after state troopers caught them using a pickup truck to drag a stolen shed down the road. Troopers were called to the York County town by a concerned citizen who reported three men had stolen a shed from a foreclosed property and were dragging it away. When troopers arrived, they found the men still dragging the 25-foot-long shed. In total, three men named Matthew Thompson, Timothy James, and Robert Breton were arrested after troopers verified the shed was indeed stolen. State police said that Matthew Thompson was also found with crystal meth and prescription pills that had not been prescribed to him. All three men were charged with theft by unauthorized taking or transfer and are expected to be indicted on additional charges of reckless conduct and criminal mischief. (
