Show Notes for Thursday February 27, 2020



THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!

Dear John,

I have a new co-worker who just started working here about a month ago. She is younger and kind of keeps to herself. I tried to talk to her one day and noticed that she had earbuds in, so we didn't really meet. I've noticed that she wear the same few outfits. She is about the same size I was before my husband and I went on a health kick a few years ago. I have our guestroom closet full of clothes that would probably look super cute on her. My husband would love me to clear out that space since he uses that room as a man cave. I'm trying to decide how to approach this with her. I don't want her to think I'm being rude somehow. I've never even really talked to her, so this all feels weird to me. Any ideas on this one? Should I just donate the clothes somewhere? Should I slip her a note of some kind? Sorry, this all seems weird. Any ideas?

Signed – ClosetQueen

Upon returning home after an evening of boozing at the bowling alley, Rebecca Duarte “wanted to have sexual intercourse” with her boyfriend. But when Duarte’s beau refused to engage, a “verbal argument began” late Sunday evening. The man told cops that when he went outside the Fort Pierce residence to “get away from Duarte,” she followed him. 23-year-old Duarte first “punched out the front glass windows with her hand.” She then approached her boyfriend and began striking him. After pushing Duarte away, the victim told officers he walked to a neighbor’s house. A cop reported observing multiple windows broken “with shattered glass on the floor.” Additionally, Duarte’s 51-year-old boyfriend had lacerations on his face and shoulder. During police questioning, Duarte was “unable to provide a statement” and could not walk without assistance due to her intoxicated state. “Duarte kept saying ‘I want to call my mom,’” Duarte was arrested for domestic battery after investigators found her to be the “primary aggressor.” (https://bit.ly/2SvhnLG)

Sea lions can dance to a beat. There are only two mammals on Earth with the proven ability to move their bodies in time with an external beat: humans (though not all humans, to be fair) and sea lions. When researchers at the University of Santa Cruz rescued a stranded sea lion in 2013, they found that she was very smart, and she was even able to learn how to dance. Though parrots can also keep a rhythm, it was previously thought that only animals capable of complex vocal learning could do this.

A bizarre video of a Michigan man appearing to bathe inside of the kitchen sink at a Wendy’s restaurant is raising eyebrows online. “So yeah I’m just gonna tell everyone right now DONT NOT GO TO THE GREENVILLE WENDYS. THIS IS DISGUSTING PLEASEEEEEE SHARE THIS,” wrote Facebook user Connor Somerfield. The footage shows a shirtless man submerged in soapy water inside of the fast food restaurant’s industrial sink, which is normally used to clean kitchen items. “Wash yourself!” a uniformed Wendy’s employee seen on camera says to the smiling man in the sink. “It feels like a hot tub. I’m just enjoying life,” the man later says. Since being uploaded on Tuesday, the video has been viewed 86,000 times as of Thursday afternoon. The Wendy’s franchisee that owns the restaurant, Team Schostak, confirmed that the incident did occur at one of its 56 Wendy’s locations. Company vice president of human resources Christian Camp said “As soon as we learned of it, which was this morning, we quickly got into action and approached every person that was involved. We’ve taken the appropriate steps to make sure this doesn’t happen again.” (https://fxn.ws/2UZXii2)

A Florida man with the last name Love got into a shootout with his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend while attempting to break into their home on Valentine’s Day. Police said the victims were sleeping on the couch around 3:00 a.m. Friday when they woke up to the sound of someone attempting to break in through the locked sliding glass door. The woman took their 3-month-old son to a bedroom while the man retrieved his gun and looked outside to see Travis Love pointing a gun at him. The victim fired a round before his gun jammed and Love shot several times as the victim retreated further into the residence, striking him in the right calf. The woman told officers that she and Love dated for five years but their relationship ended three years ago and since then, Love has harassed her and her boyfriend. Police said the screen door and screen panel of the home had been cut and a camouflage folding knife was found nearby. Love was arrested on charges of attempted felony murder with a firearm, armed occupied burglary, aggravated battery with a firearm, shooting into an occupied dwelling and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

An alleged drunk driver in Florida initially declined a breathalyzer test, telling a deputy sheriff on Sunday, “You didn’t pull me over, I pulled you over,” a report said. 63-year-old Juan Zamora gave the puzzling response after flashing his headlights at a Marion County Sheriff’s deputy’s squad car in Ocala in order to ask for directions to an auto parts store. The deputy stopped and smelled alcohol coming from Zamora as he asked the question. The driver, who had a 15-year-old passenger, also had bloodshot eyes. Zamora allegedly admitted to downing two shots of bourbon earlier that day. When he finally took the breathalyzer test, he failed, registering above Florida’s 0.8 legal limit. Authorities later found a bottle of whiskey in his car and a white substance, which field-test positive for cocaine, in Zamora’s shirt sleeve. He was charged with DUI and cocaine possession.

Rolls-Royce makes the most expensive car in the world. Currently, the most expensive car in the world is a Rolls-Royce Sweptail that sold for $13 million. However, even if you have that kind of dough lying around, you won't be able to buy it—only one was made, and it was custom-built from the ground up according to the buyer's specifications. But brand-new custom cars have nothing on used classics; the recent sale of a 1963 Ferrari GTO for $70 million is supposedly the highest price ever paid for a car.

A Florida shoplifter trying to get away from a DeLand store stripped naked and steaks tumbled out of his pants. Police found 28-year-old Stefan Short running out of the store in the buff, and when he refused to stop officers shot him with a Taser. Officers were dispatched to the store and told that Short was being pinned to the ground by a manager and a civilian but that he was fighting them. Witnesses reported to police that in an attempt to get away, Short wriggled out of his clothes. Police said Short stole four packs of ribeye steaks valued at $41.24. Short was charged with resisting an officer without violence, resisting a store employee while committing a theft, and first-degree petty theft. He remained held without bail Monday at the Volusia County Branch Jail.

A triple dog dare gone wrong. It might seem like it came right out of a movie, but it actually did happen in Green Bay on Friday. A student at a local elementary school got his tongue caught on a cold metal pole. “We all grew up as kids and saw ‘The Christmas Story,’” said Police Commander Kevin Warych, referring to the 1983 movie where this exact thing happened. “Curiosity probably got the best of this child who subsequently got [their] tongue stuck to the post.” Paramedics and police responded in the 7 o'clock hour Friday morning. In subzero temperatures, metal can become cold enough to flash freeze the moisture on your tongue, sticking you to its surface and possibly causing injury. Warych says you shouldn't try it at home.

Police said a Florida man dialed their department to report he was being shot at by the man he had just robbed and stabbed. Boynton Beach police officers said Victor Morel called them Saturday night to report that someone had shot at him twice. According to the police, 33-year-old Morel had met the man through a gay social app, Grindr, and knew from others that the unidentified man dealt drugs. Morel told officers that he went to the man’s apartment intending to “make some money off of him.” Television station WPTV reports that the men got into an argument at the apartment and Morel struck the man in the head, causing him to fall to the ground. Morel then grabbed a briefcase filled with methamphetamine and struck the victim again before running out the front door. The victim grabbed a knife and chased after Morel. Outside the apartment, Morel struck the victim with a bag of drugs and a gun fell out. After the man dropped the knife, Morel picked it up and stabbed him. The man then fired two shots as Morel drove away, hitting the windshield and driver’s side window. Morel was charged with robbery and aggravated battery. (https://cbsloc.al/38cWTg2)

A Florida man and his furry “accomplice” were taken into custody by authorities who said the man shoplifted from a store. Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said Logan Wilson was arrested last Wednesday and charged with petit theft and possession of meth. Wilson admitted to stealing $259 worth of items from Bass Pro Shops. He was arrested during a traffic stop after he was seen leaving the store. Deputies also took Wilson’s four-legged friend into custody. A sheriff’s office Facebook post showing an officer holding a small puppy said deputies took care of the “cutest accomplice” before handing him over to Hillsborough County Animal Services. Animal services will care for the dog until his owner is released from jail. Animal services has listed the puppy as “pre-adopted.” Deputies said that if the owner doesn’t claim the dog, it will go up for adoption. (https://bit.ly/37hHVUN)

Scientists also speculate that there may be many smaller-sized dinosaurs that we know nothing about because their bones were too small to fossilize well.

A Washington state driver is facing a hefty fine after being caught using a highway carpool lane with a giant stuffed dinosaur as their only passenger. Trooper Rick Johnson of the Washington State Patrol said a driver was pulled over Wednesday for speeding in the high-occupancy vehicle lanes of Interstate 5 northbound. The trooper conducting the traffic stop quickly discovered the driver's only passenger was a big green stuffed dinosaur toy. “Even if you have a favorite stuffed animal it doesn't count as a passenger for the HOV,” Johnson wrote. The driver could be facing a hefty fine thanks to a law that took effect last summer that adds a $200 fine to the $186 base fine for a HOV violation if a driver is caught “using a dummy, doll, or other human facsimile to make it appear that an additional person is in the vehicle.” (https://bit.ly/38sktpo)
