Show Notes for Thursday, November 11, 2021


Dear John,

Sometimes I get myself into weird situations. We have a group of friends who get together a few times a year. Over the course of the last several years we have all become pretty close. One of the couples is getting divorced. It's been very weird to see this happen. I'm not sure how we are supposed to handle this in the group. Some are friends with him, others are friends with her. She is the one that “got the group” in the break up. When we were getting ready to get together this last time, her ex-husband reached out to my wife and I. She told us to be careful. He claimed his ex-wife said some pretty bad things about us. We avoided her at the get together, but then she confronted us about it. We were honest and told her about the call. She claimed that it was all lies and said her ex-husband has some major issues.

We don't know who to believe. What should we do in this situation? Who do we believe? We kind of decided to just avoid them both. We only saw them at these events and now it's just her at the events. We have plenty of other people to visit with at the events. I just want to avoid the drama, but now I'm wondering if I should have given her the benefit of the doubt. Still not sure what the right thing is. I'd love your advice if you have any!

SpaceX is taming some toilet troubles in its capsules before it launches four more astronauts. The company and NASA want to make sure the toilet leaks won’t compromise the capsule launching early Sunday from Kennedy Space Center or another one that’s been parked at the International Space Station since April. During SpaceX’s first private flight last month, a tube came unglued, spilling urine onto fans and beneath the floor, said William Gerstenmaier, a SpaceX vice president who used to work for NASA. The same problem was recently discovered inside the Dragon capsule at the space station, he told reporters Monday night. SpaceX is conducting tests to make sure the spilled liquid didn't weaken the orbiting capsule during the past six months, Gerstenmaier said. Any structural damage could endanger astronauts during their flight back to Earth next month. The final tests should be completed later this week, he noted. In the meantime, the one German and three NASA astronauts fly in from Houston on Tuesday for the countdown. Like their predecessors, they'll spend six months at the space station.(

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A chicken enthusiast is facing felony burglary and child abuse charges after allegedly striking a teenage worker in the neck because she was “unhappy with the service at the KFC drive-through window,” according to Florida police. Alexandra Maldonado, 23, was arrested Friday afternoon following the confrontation at a KFC near her St. Petersburg residence. Investigators allege that Maldonado, displeased with the service, walked up to the drive-thru window and hit the 16-year-old victim, “causing a visible red mark 1” x 4” in size.” Maldonado, who works at a Metro PCS store, reached into the drive-thru window to strike the girl, cops allege. Maldonado was arrested after her car was pulled over by police. She reportedly “admitted to the offense,” the complaint states. Maldonado was charged with child abuse for striking the minor. She was also hit with a burglary count for “entering” the KFC, which was closed with the exception of the drive-thru window. She was freed from the county jail Saturday morning after posting $15,000 bond. (
