"Death is very likely the single best invention of life. It's life's change agent; it clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now, the new is you. But someday, not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it's quite true. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life." --Steve Jobs, Stanford University, 2005

When firefighters in Niceville, Florida arrived at a home last week they could see smoke coming from inside. A naked man opened the front door, said “I’m sorry,” and closed the door. Police officers arrived shortly after to assist. The man came to the door again, left it open and went back into the house. The man reportedly showed no signs of understanding the danger he was in. There were several things on fire inside the home, including some towels. Based on the fire department’s investigation, the man allegedly tried baking cookies on a George Foreman grill which he left unattended. The grill and cookies caught fire, so he put dry towels on top of the grill. Those caught fire, too, causing the fire to spread. The man admitted to drinking two liters of vodka and smoking marijuana starting around 9:00 a.m. that morning. He was examined at the scene and had no life-threatening injuries, the report said.

A food services worker at Detroit’s Comerica Park stadium was recorded Friday spitting into a pizza he was preparing for a customer, a crime for which he is expected to soon be charged. As seen in a brief video posted to a co-worker’s Instagram page, 21-year-old Jaylon Kerley spits into a tin containing pizza dough and then covers up his saliva with a ladle full of tomato sauce.

Show Notes for Thursday September 27, 2018


THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
(COMMENTS ARE WELCOME)

Dear John,


I've been happily married for 24 years. I have three grown children and one grandson. I just found out that my husband cheated on my when we were dating. It was a one-night stand 25 years ago at a frat party in college and it never happened again. Since I learned of this, we have taken a little time apart. I'm still very hurt by this. My children are split on this. My son told me I should forgive him and move on. My daughters are more hurt by this and understand why I am considering a divorce. I think I have already made up my mind, but I wanted to ask for your opinion. What do you think? I've heard you say “Once a cheater, always a cheater” Do I make amends or move on?

According to documents, Milne is accused of telling him to pay special attention to the middle cloud in the picture and that she was going to try and “use glitter glue this time.” On August 16th the Sheriff’s Department said they received three letters sent from Milne to Davis and each one contained suspected narcotics as described in the phone call. Milne was arrested for one count of delivery of drugs to a prisoner and possession of marijuana. (https://goo.gl/HGHxmk)

WEIRD NEWS:
A New York City man charged with setting a massive blaze that damaged more than 135 vehicles at a Brooklyn shopping center told investigators that he was “motivated to start the fire by his belief that others used the parked vehicles for sexual activity.” 23-year-old Evon Stephens was named yesterday in a federal complaint charging him with starting Monday’s seven-alarm blaze inside the garage at the Kings Plaza Shopping Center. The garage was used by car dealerships to store vehicles for sale. Investigators allege that Stephens initially torched a Mercedes-Benz, with the fire spreading to other vehicles. As he departed the garage Monday morning, Stephens “made an obscene hand gesture” towards a surveillance camera. After being apprehended Monday afternoon, Stephens told police that he routinely went to the garage and “accessed vehicles” owned by auto dealers. He reportedly confessed to starting the fire because he thought the parked autos were being used by “others” for sexual liaisons. Stephens, facing a felony arson charge, is being held at the federal detention center in Brooklyn. (https://goo.gl/HRx4yz)

MOMENT OF DUH:
According to court records, an Oregon man who believed that he was “shadow-banned” from YouTube due to a Deep State conspiracy was arrested yesterday for allegedly threatening to shoot employees of the online video giant. FBI agents collared 35-year-old William Gregory Douglas in connection with a recent series of threatening Twitter posts directed at YouTube and its chief executive, Susan Wojcicki. In his tweets, Douglas complained that his YouTube channel had been disabled and threatened to kill “100 YouTube employees” and cause “massive casualties.” Claiming that he was a few hours away from the firm’s California headquarters, Douglas warned, “if you are just going to ignore me try ignoring my gun you f***s.” As described by FBI Agent Jeffrey Gray in a court filing, the videos included “long rants about the ‘Deep State’” and Douglas’s claim that “he has been ‘shadow-banned’ from YouTube, which he described as a government operation.” Douglas, who is being held without bail at the Jackson County lockup, is scheduled to be arraigned on the felony counts Monday at the U.S. District Court in Medford.
