Show Notes for Thursday March 12, 2020


Dear John,

My husband and I have been married for 12 years. When we met I already had a 4 year old daughter. He knew that when we started dating and when we got married. Now she's 16 and the two of them do not get along. My husband stayed at his mom's house last night and he told me I should have my daughter stay with her father for a while. My husband says he's not really interested in living here anymore if she's going to be here. Se is pretty rude to him, but I think it's because he's rude to her. I'm just stuck in the middle. What do I do? I love him, but I also need to raise my daughter. I've already told him, she's going to be leaving for college in a few years anyway. What do I do?

A Florida man went on an alcohol and hallucinogenic-fueled rampage with a sledgehammer, thinking he was killing “demons” who were tormenting him. Instead, he was smashing windows, damaging cars, and destroying his own home. On Sunday afternoon, multiple Little Torch Key residents called 9-1-1 to report the man with a sledgehammer on Pirates Road destroying property in the neighborhood. When deputies arrived, witnesses said the man had jumped into a canal. The sledgehammer-carrying suspect was found walking down the next street, Blackbeard Road. With their guns drawn, the deputies ordered the man, later identified as 32-year-old Rafael Suarez Gomez, to drop the sledgehammer and get on the ground. He later told deputies he'd been drinking that day when someone gave him an unknown narcotic/hallucinogenic drug. A short time after taking the drug, he started seeing “demons,” who he said ordered him to destroy stuff. He is facing multiple misdemeanor and felony charges as a result of the fiasco. (

Many languages have the same roots. English, Portuguese, Latvian, Pashto, and Greek all sound very different today, but these languages all have a common ancestor called Proto-Indo-European. Though we don't have any written examples of it, linguists have worked backwards from a variety of modern languages to try to reconstruct it. Using their reconstruction, the sentence "The king wanted a son" would be written as "H3rḗḱs súhxnum u̯l̥nh1to."

A New Mexico woman is facing a larceny charge after authorities say she stole a neighbor’s anatomical skeleton model that allegedly was making an offensive gesture toward her. Court documents filed Monday show that Diana Hogrebe was charged with one count of larceny in connection with the skeleton heist. Hogrebe, told Santa Fe County Sheriff’s deputies she was offended by the way the skeleton’s hand was posed — with the middle finger pointed up. She told the Santa Fe New Mexican the episode was the culmination of a months-long feud between her and neighbor Joseph Downs, who she said has hassled her family. According to the deputy’s statement of probable cause, the skeleton was a gift to Downs from a family member and was worth about $1,500. Hogrebe took it in the early morning hours of February 27th. She told the deputy the finger pose had offended and upset her. “It just put me to the boiling point,” she said in the interview. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by
While it's often recommended people stop and smell the flowers, taking time out to pet cats can lead to arrest. At least that was the case for a Boca Raton man last week who, in the middle of fleeing police, stopped by a home, asked for water, and then proceeded to lay down and play with the homeowner's cats. All that happened after the man is accused of taking $2,000 out of a friend's wallet following a night of partying. The man then crashed a Lexus into multiple vehicles, including a cop car and a fire hydrant, before he bailed into a residential area. At that point, both the police were hot on his tail. The man walked up to Candace Noonan's back sliding-glass door and let himself in, saying he was a landscaper working next door. He asked her for a glass of water and she obliged. When she returned with the water, the man was lying down on the floor, playing with her cats. 21-year-old Daniel Pinedo-Velapatino now faces a long list of charges, including burglary of an occupied dwelling, three counts of drug possession, three counts of assault, hit and run, and grand theft auto, among others.
