A doctor in Georgia has been charged with making terroristic threats after she allegedly threatened to slit her employees’ throats and cut off one of their heads. Marian Antoinette Patterson, a family practice doctor who’s worked in the Valdosta area for almost 30 years, allegedly shouted a slew of threats at her employees. Authorities reportedly responded to Patterson’s South Georgia practice after reports of a disturbance. Patterson allegedly told employees she would “slit their throats,” and even told one worker she was going to “cut her head off and roll it down the hallway,” and that she’d call the employee’s children to show them. The doctor allegedly grabbed at least one employee and threw a catalog, reflex hammer, and prescription bottles, along with trying to throw a large potted plant. Patterson also tossed water on two employees. Patterson has been charged with three counts of terroristic threats and false imprisonment.(https://goo.gl/v7KrYF)

A listener sent this in to correct us from the other day.
Here's some true facts about pigs.They very certainly CAN look up. First one bites you, there, you'll know it.
They have teeth, that look like a set of human dentures. And they smile. Which is funny as hell, first time you walk up to a hog pen, and ten of them look up and smile at you.
The reason they are smiling, is because they are hoping you will climb in, with them. So they can bite and stomp you to death, and fight over the scraps. Hogs, are only outdone by possums, on viciously killing anything.
A body, in a hog pen, will be completely gone in the morning.
Hogs, physically, are more like a human, than any other animal. ( heart valves, etc.). Morally? Who knows? Something to think about. But they sure as hell can look up. Thanks for the show

Hi. Thanks for the reply. Here's a real, fun fact.
Crows, and ravens, mate for life.
They are also the only species that can communicate with another one.
Birds, that talk to mammals. When they find a single deer or elk or whatever, sick or cut from the heard, they search for the nearest wolf pack, have a cry they understand, and they will follow them to the prey. The Crows gets the leavings. Pretty cool, huh?
YES!!! Thanks again for the awesome fun facts!!
