Show Notes for Thursday, February 10, 2022


Dear John,

I've been dating my girlfriend for a few years. We met before the pandemic and we spent every single day on the phone for about a year. We've been together now every day over the last year. I'm thinking of asking her to marry me on Valentine's Day. I know I'm ready and I'm positive she's the one. We get along so well. I think the daily phone calls for the first year actually helped us grow closer. I have a weird question though. I have a ring that I bought over 10 years ago. I was young and stupid and thought I was in love. I proposed to my high school sweetheart right before she left for college. That ended in a big fat no! I already have that ring, but my mom said I should get a different ring. Does that matter? I thought you guys may be able to tell me if this sounds like a bad idea.

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

According to a study published last week in the scientific journal Plos One, climate change will make it much harder to grow Arabica coffee in the coming years. According to projections from several global climate models, coffee plants will be “drastically” less suitable for cultivation in current coffee-producing regions by 2050. Arabica coffee, which is used by Starbucks and other major coffee sellers, is already a finicky crop that requires specific conditions to flourish. The authors concluded that “climate change adaptation will be necessary in most major producing regions” not just for coffee, but for cashews and avocados as well. This could include breeding new varieties, and in the case of coffee, it might also mean switching to Robusta trees, which are hardier but produce beans considered to be of lower quality than Arabica beans.

The Winter Olympics typically move from one chilly destination to another every 4 years. But a new study says the games could be forced to be held at the same place every time – due to climate change. Scientists at the University of Waterloo say it will be increasingly difficult to find suitable locations for the Winter Olympics as global warming advances. If greenhouse gas emissions continue at their current levels, only 1 of the 21 prior Winter Olympics host cities would be a suitable location for future Winter Olympic games by the end of the century. But the researchers believe that if nations reach their Paris Climate Agreement emissions targets, there will be 8 climate-reliable host cities within that same time frame.


Eternals didn’t see the success that Marvel Studios hoped for during its worldwide theater run in late 2021. On top of premiering during a global pandemic, the film was also hammered with mixed reviews from both critics and fans. Eternals is now available to stream on Disney+ and set a record for the streaming service: it was streamed by 2 million households during its first five days, breaking a record for most streams by a Marvel movie in the first five days of release.

The entertainment industry is once again contemplating a break from production as the Omicron variant of COVID winds through countries around the globe, and the latest victim of the current surge is the romantic comedy movie Ticket to Paradise starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts. The film tells the tale of a divorced couple who have to rush to the Indonesian province of Bali to stop their daughter from making the same mistake they did 25 years prior: marrying young and wrong. Production has been paused due to a spike in COVID cases in Queensland, Australia, where the film was shooting.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Ford and ADT, the home security company, are working jointly on something called Canopy, that will eventually let you monitor your car remotely. In a promotional video, a potential thief scopes out items in the open truck bed of a carpenter, who, from afar, is able to watch the thief look in his truck’s bed, eying power equipment to potentially steal. The carpenter is then able to press his screen and say, “Hey, get away from my truck,” which is sent to a speaker on the truck. Some lights are also activated. Spooked, the potential thief walks away, and the carpenter grins, having averted a possible theft with Canopy.

A 19-year-old who was offered $5,000 by Elon Musk to shut down a Twitter account tracking the billionaire’s jet says he refused the offer because it wasn’t enough to compensate for the “satisfaction” he gets from running the account. Musk tweeted last month that social-media accounts discussing his whereabouts were “becoming a security issue.” In the Twitter conversation viewed by a reporter, Jack Sweeney gave technical advice on how the billionaire could make his jet less trackable. After Musk’s offer of $5,000, Sweeney asked if there was “Any chance to up that to $50K?” The 19-year-old said that he had done “a lot of work…and 5k is not enough.” Musk said he would think about the counter-offer, but later said it “doesn’t feel right to pay to shut this down.”

Dateline.... RUSSIA

A Russian artist has been arrested for creating a snow sculpture near a burial site in St. Petersburg. Ivan Volkov was criminally charged for desecrating the burial place of the dead when he created a 16-foot-long poop sculpture.

Someone has paid $71,500 for a 1976 AMC Pacer. But it’s not just ANY Pacer. It’s the very one from 1992’s “Wayne’s World.” Despite its distinctive design, the Pacer is often derided as a poor American attempt at a compact hatchback made during the height of the “Malaise Era”, but clearly its movie connections were enough to rocket the bidding into Corvette territory. You probably remember its scene-stealing appearance in the movie as rock music-loving buds Wayne and Garth and their friends perform a rousing singalong of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ as they drive through their hometown of Aurora, Illinois.
