Show Notes for Thursday, January 07, 2021


Dear John,

My daughter wants to buy a home with her boyfriend. I asked why they don't get married first. She wants to wait until she can have a big wedding, not sure if that will happen in 2021. I suggested that she get married in a small ceremony now and then do a big wedding later. She wants to spend the money they had saved for the wedding on a down payment for a home. I have two problems with this. First, I'm old-fashioned and think they should be married before they live together. Right now they both rent apartments and they have been working from home. They're thinking that they could save money by moving in together in a home that they would be buying instead of renting. That all makes sense, but I think my second problem is a bigger issue. What if they break up? How do you decide who gets the home if they have both been paying on it? I think it sounds like a nightmare of a problem if that were to happen. I love my daughter's boyfriend. I think they will be an amazing couple, but I think they should wait to buy the home after they get married. Do I sound like I'm out-of-touch with this opinion? My ex-husband likes the idea, but I think he likes it because I don't like it, so I'm not putting too much weight on that. What do you think? Any of your facebook followers have some advice from a legal perspective?

A Texas man accused of letting his 13-year-old stepdaughter drive them to get ice cream is facing charges. 42-year-old Javier Martinez-Aguilar of Lubbock was indicted on a felony charge of endangering a child and criminal negligence. A police officer reportedly pulled over a 13-year-old girl driving an SUV. A police report said Martinez-Aguilar was in the passenger seat. “She was driving her stepfather to get ice cream because he was drunk,” the report said. Police stopped the girl because she failed to yield the right of way to a police vehicle, which nearly crashed into Martinez-Aguilar and the girl. Martinez-Aguilar was so drunk he had trouble getting his license out of his wallet. He was charged with criminal negligence and child endangerment and booked into a County Detention Center. (

People who consider their pets honorary family members often want to include them in their holiday festivities. But pouring a little Christmas cheer into Buster’s dog bowl isn’t a good idea, say animal-care experts. Alcohol can have the same effect on animals as it has on humans, which means drunken Dachshunds and schnockered Shih Tzus can become disoriented, nauseated and even poisoned. Vets say they see a spike in alcohol-related dog and cat illnesses around the holidays.

A man in Italy was surprised to see his bank statement telling him that he was $43 billion overdrawn. The man said his wife first noticed the discrepancy on his account Monday morning. The bank admitted the “technical error” had been limited to “a number of customers.”

A British psychologist said his research indicates foot movements are one of the most powerful indicators of whether a woman finds a suitor attractive. The psychologist (University of Manchester) said he examined how people move their feet in a number of situations and found women tended to move their feet away from their bodies, adopting more open-leg stances, when speaking with someone they find attractive. He said crossing the legs or keeping them tucked under the body is a sign of a lack of sexual attraction among women. The professor said he found men did not reveal sexual attraction through their feet, but both men and women signal they are being dishonest with an unnatural lack of foot movement. He said men also tend to move their feet more when they are nervous, while women keep their feet still while feeling the same emotion.

Kleenex tissues were originally intended for gas masks

When there was a cotton shortage during World War I, Kimberly-Clark developed a thin, flat cotton substitute that the army tried to use as a filter in gas masks. The war ended before scientists perfected the material for gas masks, so the company redeveloped it to be smoother and softer, then marketed Kleenex as facial tissue instead.

A North Dakota man threatened to kill a former co-worker and then kicked in the victim’s front door after he failed to accept a Facebook friend request. 29-year-old Caleb Burczyk reportedly sent a series of threatening texts and Facebook messages to 39-year-old Robert Allen Thomas. Burczyk formerly worked with Thomas for a company that maintains oil and gas wells. But after Thomas and his relative left to work for another firm, Burczyk was laid off and has remained unemployed. As detailed in a probable cause affidavit, Burczyk last week began sending “aggressive” Facebook messages to Thomas, one of which warned, “Accept my friend request or I’m going to murder you.” Burczyk subsequently traveled to Thomas’s home--where several other family members live--and kicked in the front door before entering the residence. Charged with burglary and terrorizing, he was booked into the County jail on the felony charges. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A Domino’s delivery man in England was caught on a doorbell camera rubbing a pint of ice on his crotch before giving the frozen treat to his customer. Jonathan Terry of Buckinghamshire, England, fell victim to the disturbing act after a recent order from the pizza chain that included a tub of birthday cake-flavored Ben and Jerry’s. “It felt quite disrespectful and very vile,” Terry told a local news outlet. “My housemate said he felt violated — he was not happy.” Terry told the outlet his girlfriend alerted him to the incident after he retrieved the frozen treat from his freezer. “About twenty minutes after we received the delivery, we went to get the ice cream out and I had a call from my girlfriend,” Terry said. “She said ‘I hope you haven’t eaten the ice cream that Domino’s have sent you.’ She then told me to go and look at the Ring doorbell footage.” Terry said Domino’s offered him complimentary coupons after he complained, but he refused. A Domino’s spokeswoman, Rachel Townsend, told Fox News that the company is investigating the incident. (
