Show Notes for Thursday May 2, 2019


Dear John,

My husband and I have saved up to go on a nice vacation. We posted something on facebook and now a couple we know is also going to go to the same place the same week. We don't really even hang out with them here, but they're expecting to spend time with us on this vacation. I've been stressing about it so much that I'm not even looking forward to the vacation now. What should I do? I've even checked into changing the week we go, but there would be a big expense and some tough scheduling problems to deal with, so I'd rather not do that. What do you suggest?

While being booked for causing a disturbance at a bar, a Florida Man rubbed the buttocks of a fingerprint technician, according to a police report which notes that the suspect said he pawed the female victim because “she was sexy.” 44-year-old Jack Dylan Evans was arrested Wednesday afternoon for disorderly conduct at the Down the Hatch bar in Pinellas Park. Cops say Evans had been yelling obscenities in the bar and told the owner he wanted to have sex with her. After police arrived at the business, Evans, who lives in Pinellas Park, “continued to make crude sexual comments.” Evans was subsequently transported to the Pinellas County jail, where he was booked on the misdemeanor charge, which carried a $250 bond. As Evans was being fingerprinted by technician Dena Pham, he allegedly “reached with his left hand down to the victim’s right buttocks area.” Pham identified Evans “as the person who battered her,” and the incident was recorded by a surveillance camera. A second charge--for battery on a jail employee--was filed against Evans. (

Beyonce and Jay-Z had a private date night at a members only club in Brooklyn on Friday night. For those of you who don’t speak celebrity, a private date night means they went on a date and their publicist leaked the details to a reporter.

Whispering Is Bad for Your Voice
It might seem like whispering can help you preserve your vocal cords, whether you’ve got laryngitis or are auditioning for American Idol. But researchers have found the opposite to be true. One study that used a fiber-optic scope on 100 subjects while they counted from 1 to 10 (first in a normal voice, then a whisper) found that 69 of them put more strain on their vocal cords when they whispered.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
A dispute over access to a Netflix account allegedly turned violent, leading to the arrest of a Florida Woman for allegedly battering an elderly female victim during the domestic confrontation. According to a criminal complaint, the victim told police that “during a verbal altercation over Netflix usage,” 33-year-old Crystal Marie Ortiz grabbed at her in an attempt to “stop the victim from using her tablet.” A cop reported that during the tussle, the victim “received bruises to her left wrist and hand.” Additionally, Ortiz allegedly grabbed a necklace and ripped it from the victim’s neck, breaking the jewelry. While the complaint only describes the victim as over 65 years of age, records show that an 88-year-old woman resides in the New Port Richey home where the alleged attack occurred. Ortiz was arrested on a felony battery charge after police determined that she was the primary aggressor and “did actually and intentionally touch the victim.”

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A South Carolina man is facing multiple charges, including with second-degree arson, after police say they believe he threw an explosive device at the apartment of a woman who recently broke up with him. The State reports 32-year-old Devin Ross Spinelli was arrested Monday in Charleston. Police officers responded to a call at the woman's apartment. An incident report says they found evidence that something had burned outside underneath a window, and there was a smell of gasoline. An officer who stopped Spinelli in his vehicle nearby says Spinelli was wearing medical gloves and had a lighter and a bottle of liquid that appeared to be gasoline. The newspaper did not report whether Spinelli is represented by an attorney. His bond was set at $250,000.
