Show Notes for Thursday April 25, 2019


Dear John,

My friend is in a bad relationship but I'm afriad she won't do anything to help her situation because she's been divorced before. She was married young and had an awesome daughter. That marriage ended about 15 years ago, and she has been remarried now for over a decade. Her new husband is not a very nice guy. We spent a weekend together recently and I witnessed him verbally abuse my friend over and over. He also treats her daughter very poorly. Her whole personality has changed so much that she won't say a word, and if she does, her step-dad calls her names and talks down to her. All of this in addition to my friend catching him cheating on her twice now. Is there anything I can do to help this situation? How can I help open her eyes to what's happening? I asked her why she lets this happen. She said he's not always like that. She wants to try to make it work. Should I stay out of it now or should I try to help my friend somehow?

Signed – concerned friend

A New Orleans-area woman, beat up her ex-boyfriend with his own prosthetic leg earlier this year because he tried to break up with her, was arrested last Wednesday. On February 11th, 58-year-old Michelle Jackson was drinking with her now ex-boyfriend when he told her he wanted to see someone else. The man went to sleep without incident but awoke the next morning with an injured hand and a large cut on his head that was dripping blood. Jackson, who had left before authorities arrived, allegedly told a relative she had beat the man with his prosthetic leg and thought she had killed him.

Penguins Used to Be Almost Seven Feet Tall
Researchers from the La Plata Museum found fossils in the Antarctic of a “colossus penguin,” measuring 6 feet, 8 inches in height. The larger penguins would have been able to dive underwater for 40 minutes at a time, according to the researchers, though they no doubt looked kind of silly when they walked.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
A woman in Texas allegedly assaulted her common-law husband after he didn't respond when she asked if she was pretty. 20-year-old Lizeth Guadalupe Ramirez was arrested late Tuesday after the alleged incident. She allegedly told investigators the man assaulted her and tried to strangle her. However, the common-law husband reportedly told a different story, telling police the couple was at a movie theater when she asked him if she looked pretty. Ramirez's husband said he didn't respond — as he didn't hear her — which upset Ramirez, and prompted them to leave the theater. During their ride home, Ramirez's husband claimed she allegedly hit him repeatedly. At their home, she allegedly continued to hit him and even assaulted a family member who tried to intervene. Ramirez was charged with two counts of assault and family violence.
