Show Notes for Thursday March 7, 2019


Dear John,

I have two very close friends who are both Realtors and I'm getting ready to buy a home. When I bought the home I live in now, I worked with my friend who has been a Realtor for about 10 years now. Since then another friend has just gotten her Real Estate license and started selling homes. They both know we're planning on moving in the spring. I'm not sure how to move forward with one of them and let the other one down. They work with different companies and they are both awesome at what they do. I feel like I may lose a friendship over this no matter what decision I make. Not sure that you can help, but I thought I'd at least ask! Any advice?

A man wearing a gorilla costume last week broke into a Louisiana residence, according to cops who fought with the suspect after finding him hiding under a mattress. Police in Sulphur responded Wednesday evening to a call about a suspicious man dressed in an all-black outfit--prowling around homes and peering into windows. When officers located the suspect--later identified as 34-year-old Jeremie Joseph Moran--he fled into a nearby residence, ignoring police demands to stop. During a subsequent search of the home, cops found Moran beneath a mattress. He was wearing a "black gorilla suit" at the time. Moran tussled with cops trying to handcuff him, but he was eventually subdued and placed under arrest. He was charged with multiple offenses, including unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, methamphetamine possession, resisting a police officer with violence or force, and wearing a mask or hood in public.

Will Smith will play Richard Williams, the father of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams, in the movie King Richard. The film will center on Richard Williams overcoming hardship, skepticism, controversy, and his own troubled past to instruct his daughters, starting when they were four years old on the tennis courts of Compton, California — despite not having a background in tennis.

Will Smith will not be returning to the role of “Deadshot” in “Suicide Squad 2.” Will says there are no hard feelings and that the whole thing came down to scheduling. (

A type of video called “gongbang” is popular on YouTube. Gongbang translates to “study broadcast” in Korean. In Japan, it’s known as benkyou douga, and in the US and other parts of the world, it’s simply called “study with me.” It’s a type of video in which people prepare for an exam on camera, while other people watch and study as well.
Fans of “study with me” videos claim when you’re studying by yourself, you can feel alone. But you can reduce your loneliness by getting the sensation of studying with other people.

A Lizard Squirts Blood From Its Eyes as a Defense. An effective way to fend off predators is to freak them out, it seems. That’s the strategy of the horned lizard, which when it sees a coyote or similar predator, will squirt blood from its eyes into the mouth of the predator. It tastes disgusting and looks pretty gross too, ensuring that the predator retreats.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A North Dakota man has been sentenced to eighteen months in prison for threatening to kill a federal judge in Minnesota. 65-year-old Robert Ivers of West Fargo was sentenced Friday. Prosecutors say Ivers made the threats after a civil bench trial in 2017 in which the judge ruled against him. He sent her threatening letters and he called a court employee to say he was “crazy angry.” Prosecutors say he described himself as a “walking bomb.” In November 2017 he tried to file another lawsuit similar to the one he lost. When two volunteer lawyers told him he didn't have a legal claim, he became angry and made threatening statements. He was arrested by U.S. Marshals. (
