THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
I recently started dating someone new. She wants me to quit going to the gym. My ex girlfriend goes to that gym. There's another gym on the other side of town. I told my new girlfriend I'd join that gym if she joined with me. She said she does not want to join me, but does not want me going to the gym where my ex girlfriend goes. I think this is ridiculous. We are never there at the same time any way, so why does this even matter? Should I go to the new gym? Should I stay where I've been going for a decade?
Signed – Should I Stay or Should I Go?!

• 14% use the same cutting board for raw meat, then vegetables.
• 23% have cooked a full meal while drunk or high.
• 8% burn things on purpose, because they like the taste.

Officers in Bellevue are searching for two armed men after a robbery at a pharmacy Monday failed to provide what the suspects were looking for. Police said the suspects entered Clark’s Compounding Pharmacy at 10:00 a.m. Both men were wearing delivery driver uniforms and one man was carrying a box that had their guns inside. Police said the robbers used zip-ties to restrain the employees and demanded OxyContin, but because the location is a compounding pharmacy, it did not have the drug. A compounding pharmacy customizes medication based on a patient’s specific needs as prescribed by a doctor. Investigators said the men were in the pharmacy about eight minutes before leaving with about $150. No drugs were taken. The first suspect is described as white, 25 to 30 years old with an average build and wearing dark Oakley sunglasses. The second suspect is Hispanic, 30 to 40 years old, 230 to 250 pounds with a stocky build and a thick accent. Both men were dressed in brown delivery uniforms and black bandanas. Police are notifying other pharmacies in the area. Luckily, no one was hurt. (https://bit.ly/3sKwUYg)

Dog the Bounty Hunter’s stepdaughter got into an argument with her lover and punched him in the face, according to what he told police, who have charged her for domestic violence. Police in Honolulu received a call just before midnight on July 31 about an argument at a residence, and when they got there, the alleged victim told officers Cecily Barmore punched and bit him. She has confirmed there was an incident, but says it was an “altercation where a man struck me and said vile things about the memory of my dead mother.” She was placed under arrest for misdemeanor abuse of a household member.

This is a trend that’s fairly odd. It seems many people are setting their iPhone’s location to France, despite the fact they don’t live there, in an attempt at speeding up their device. The “hack”, which has received a lot of attention on social media, claims it prevents the slowing of devices seen on older iPhones. How? It stems from a fine imposed on Apple by France’s competition watchdog. Apple was fined 25 million euros (US $27 million) last year for deliberately slowing older devices, presumably to encourage them to buy new ones. Some iPhone users believe that since the decision in France, Apple has stopped the throttling of performance in that country, so setting your old iPhone’s (iPhone 7 and older) region to France will disable the slowdown. The bad news? Although doing this may speed up your older iPhone, it could cause some battery issues, according to experts.
FACT FOR YOU:

Rattlesnakes shake louder to make listeners think they are closer than they actually are, and can trick the ear into believing they are right beside the snake, according to new research. Study lead Boris Chagnaud of Karl-Franzens-University-Graz in Austria, wrote: “The acoustic display of rattlesnakes, which has been interpreted for decades as a simple acoustic warning signal…is in fact a far more intricate interspecies communication signal. The sudden switch to high-frequency mode acts as a smart signal, fooling the listener about its actual distance to the sound source. The misinterpretation of distance by the listener thereby creates a distance safety margin.”
PRESENTS... A NEWS HEADLINE... FROM SOMEWHERE IN THIS
The Chinese government banned kids under 18 from playing online video games on school nights and will allow gaming for only one hour a day on weekends and public holidays. The announcement from the National Press and Publication Administration amounts to the strictest rules introduced yet to curb video game addiction among China's youth. All online video games are required to be connected to an “anti-addiction” system operated by the NPPA using real-name registration. Tencent, the world’s largest video game company by revenue, has already started using facial recognition technology to verify users. The latest ruling reflects China’s determination to reshape its tech industry over concerns that kids’ brains are turning into oatmeal. Earlier this month, an article in state media called video games “opium for the mind,” wiping off nearly $100 billion in value from gaming stocks. Tencent’s market cap has lost more than $400 billion since a February peak.

A British woman who lost her prosthetic leg while swimming in a lake was reunited with her lost limb when a volunteer diver answered a plea for help on social media. Josephine Bridges, of Birmingham, England, said she was swimming in Windermere and lost her leg at some point after jumping off the Millerground jetty. Bridges' sister, Emily, posted a plea for help on social media, and the Facebook post came to the attention of Angus Hosking, founder of Lake District Diving. Hosking met Bridges and her family at the lake and set about searching the bottom of the lake. "The visibility under the water was pretty terrible, so I was nearly on top of it when I finally saw it. I just saw a Birkenstock on the foot of it," Hosking said. Hosking said he often responds to calls for help retrieving objects lost in the water. He said he was happy this story had a happy ending.
