Show Notes for Wednesday, May 12, 2021

Nathan Timmel, comedian and author of the novel “We Are 100”.

After losing his wife, Evan Francart is depressed. He has an axe to grind with the pharmaceutical company that jacked up the price of her medications, but feels powerless against a billion-dollar corporation. Then he meets Cassandra. She shows Evan a way to both end his life and become a hero. With her guidance, Evan interrupts a company board meeting and blows the building sky-high. As FBI agents Susan Chamberlain and Michael Godwin discover, Evan is the first of many. Ninety-nine more like him wait anonymously in the wings, their targets just as personal as Evan's: the prosecutor who lets rapists walk free, the inept surgeon who maims patients yet keeps operating, the phony evangelist preying on those seeking solace... and that's just the beginning.

Most laughter isn't because things are funny. Every culture in the world laughs, but surprisingly, most of our laughter isn't necessarily a response to humor. Less than 20 percent of laughter comes after jokes, according to neuroscientist Robert Provine; the rest is a reaction to regular statements and questions like, "How have you been?" The ensuing laughter, however brief, helps form social bonds since people who laugh together grow closer. PRESENTS... A NEWS HEADLINE... FROM SOMEWHERE IN THIS WORLD!

If there’s one thing independent young people and seniors both have in common, it’s the need for affordable housing. It’s this search to find a low-cost apartment that led one teen to accidentally move into a retirement community. 19-year-old Madison Kohout told she was moving from Oklahoma to Arkansas and was searching for a two-bedroom apartment online. After finding a “super spacious” apartment that was listed at $350 a month, Kohout said she signed the lease without looking at it in person and moved in days later. While she found it odd her neighbors were all over 65 years of age, it didn’t click until a week after her move when she noticed the retirement home sign outside her building. “The first week of moving here was crazy!” Kohout told Newsweek. “I was busy with finding a job and setting up my apartment, I didn’t even notice! I thought it was a bit weird that all of my neighbors were significantly older than me.” Based on her TikTok observations, which have no gone viral, her new living situation has largely been positive with her noting in one video that her home is “always super quiet” because her neighbors are usually asleep by the time she gets home.

A heartless crook stole a prosthetic arm belonging to a college baseball pitcher in South Dakota. Parker Hanson’s artificial limb was in his unlocked car outside his home when a thief was caught on surveillance camera stealing it early Monday morning. “To the person in Sioux Falls last night who felt the need to steal other people’s property, I hope those prosthetic arms and attachments bring you more use than they brought me,” Hanson, a baseball player at Augustana University, wrote on his Facebook page. Hanson’s prosthetic arm and other equipment were inside a tan Nike backpack. The bag was found down the block from Hanson’s home Monday night, but the arm was not inside, the athlete said. Hanson told the Argus Leader that the prosthetic arm is specially designed for him. In place of his missing one, Hanson is using a backup prosthetic that doesn’t fit as well, he told the newspaper.
