Show Notes for Thursday, May 12, 2022


Dear John,

My son has worked at the same place for seven years. He's been there since his last few years in high school. He's ready to move on, but he thinks he needs to quit before getting a new job lined up. I've told him to wait until he has a new job lined up before quitting. He said he can't make it to interviews because he's at work. I'm afraid that he may have trouble finding work if he just quits. Please talk some sense into my son. He likes your show. I think he will listen to you more than he listens to me. I'm his lame dad!

Signed – Lame Dad

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Animal researchers admit they’re “surprised” by the results of a new study revealing how often you should feed your dog. The study, an analysis of data collected by The Dog Aging Project since 2019, covers 10,000 dogs of all ages, sizes and breeds. The researchers looked for associations between diet and health conditions such as skin, orthopedic, kidney, urinary, liver, cardiac, and neurological disorders. And here’s where the surprise comes in: Dogs fed just once a day have fewer health issues and better cognitive scores, compared to dogs fed more frequently.

If you’ve ever wondered just where your cat runs off to when he/she ventures outdoors, wonder no more. According to new research from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, not very far at all. Scientists used GPS technology to track nearly 100 cats in Norway, and the results suggest home is where the heart is – even for cats. On average, the cats spent 79% of their time outside within 50 meters (164 feet) of home. And for all cats, the average maximum distance from home recorded was 352 meters (1,155 feet). A few felines, however, ventured as far as several kilometers away.


Here’s another sign of the film industry’s return to normal: The summer blockbuster season is set to kick off with a huge Marvel movie on the first weekend of May with “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” And just like the last film to feature Doctor Strange, “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” this one arrives with the sky-high expectations one would expect from a pre-pandemic blockbuster. Projections have “Doctor Strange 2” earning an opening weekend of at least $160 million, with some analysts expecting a figure closer to $200 million. Should those be correct, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” would deliver the biggest opening weekend of 2022 and the second-biggest debut in COVID-19 times. “The Batman” has the biggest opening of the year, with $134 million, and “Spider-Man: No Way Home” ranks as the pandemic’s biggest opening weekend with $260 million.

Johnny Depp insists that Hollywood has boycotted him, but overseas he’s poised to make a big-screen return. His new film “Jeanne Du Barry”, will be pitched at Cannes later this month. The project would mark Depp’s first feature since 2020’s “Minamata”. Depp will play ‘King Louis XV’, a.k.a. ‘Louis the Beloved’ in a French-language movie directed by Maïwenn, who also stars as the ruler’s mistress. Shooting will take place primarily at the Versailles Palace and is set to begin this summer.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Put on your best cabaret attire, because Airbnb is inviting you to spend the night at the Moulin Rouge. The home rental giant has unveiled a select and secluded stay inside the iconic red windmill in Paris that it says “has been sumptuously designed to transport guests back in time to the late 19th century.” The windmill’s interior has been transformed into a Belle Époque-inspired boudoir, reminiscent of the cabaret era. Lucky guests will get to experience a peek behind the velvet curtains, including backstage access to the theater, a traditional French meal, the best seats during the Moulin Rouge’s acclaimed show “Féerie”, and an overnight stay inside the iconic windmill, all for just 1 Euro a night. Only 3 overnight stays are available, and alas, they’re booked.

It’s a myth that people are either “left-brained” or “right-brained.”

A typical pair of tennis shoes will last 500 miles (805km) of walking.

A person burns essentially the same number of calories whether they run or walk a mile.

A blind chameleon can still adjust to the colors of its environment.

Crows can recognize human faces, and remember them for their entire lives. They’ve also been known to leave gifts for humans.

A well-thrown curveball can dive as much as 17 inches (43cm) as it approaches the batter.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

An American family caused a scare at Israel’s main airport after presenting an unexploded bomb shell as a souvenir at security. A member of the family, whose names have not been revealed, had picked it up as a souvenir on a visit to the Golan Heights. Witnesses say the man simply took it out of his backpack and showed it to security staff, asking if it could be put in a suitcase. A security officer ordered the area cleared and panic ensued immediately. Video footage shows people shouting and fleeing the check-in area or simply taking cover on the floor. LINK:
