Show Notes for Thursday, August 13, 2020


Dear John,

I have a co-worker that constantly talks about politics and starts arguments at work. He has been worse than normal since we've been working from home. I thought it would actually be better, but he sends me stuff and tries to start arguments on a weekly basis. I've asked him not to waste company time on this, but I'm not his boss, so he does not listen to me at all. We used to be friends, but I would no longer use that word to describe him. We are now co-workers only. What should I do? I can't block him since there are times that actual work related things are shared through our social media accounts. I don't want to get him fired, so I'd rather not get him in trouble. This all started in 2016 and I thought it would end after the election, but it's gotten worse. I really think he's gone a little insane. Not sure what else I can do. I've asked him over and over to leave the politics at home, but it's getting so bad that many other people in the company have already threatened to report him. What can I do to hopefully talk some sense into my former friend before he loses his job over this?

Health officials are warning against drinking hand sanitizer — after four poisoning deaths were reported in the American southwest. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday issued an advisory against ingesting any type of sanitizer — and echoed FDA guidance to entirely avoid products that contain methanol, a wood alcohol substance that can be toxic when ingested or absorbed through the skin. Over the course of May and June, the CDC reported fifteen cases of methanol poisoning in Arizona and New Mexico when people swallowed alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Four of those patients died, while three were discharged with visual impairments, according to the CDC. (

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

This guy puts the “bare” in bare-knuckle brawl. A naked man blocking a busy street in Russia got shown who’s boss by a fed-up driver — who hopped out of his car and knocked him out with a single punch. According to footage from Jam Press, The bare-bottomed buffoon is first shown strutting down the middle of the road, stunning onlookers and forcing cars to swerve around him. He then stands with his arms crossed directly in front of a white sedan, refusing to let it pass, prompting a hulking man to exit the ride. After a quick conversation, the driver goes full “Raging Bull” — socking the naked man in the face so hard, he falls to the ground as passers-by laugh. The footage, which was uploaded to Twitter earlier this month, has since gone viral, raking in more than 850,000 views. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

An Amazon delivery worker who really “needed to go” was reportedly caught defecating in a woman’s garden before delivering a package to her neighbor. 53-year-old Sharon Smith, a counselor for England’s National Health Service, told The Sun that she spotted the worker going to the bathroom on her property in the village of Nuthall on July 26th. “I cannot express how shocked I was, I could not believe what I was seeing in this day and age,” Smith told the outlet. Smith said she followed the man into her yard because she believed he was trying to steal wood. Despite asking what the man was doing, Smith said, “he remained pooing whilst asking me what my problem was.” The man remained there until Smith’s husband and police showed up — and even dropped off a package at a neighbor’s house. No charges were brought against him, but he did lose his job.(
