Show Notes for Thursday, May 5, 2022


Dear John,

My daughter lives in an apartment. Her neighbor recently scratched her car and dented in her door when the win caught his door and slammed it into her car. It was a simple accident. They didn't call the police because he said he would pay to have it fixed. She got an estimate and gave it to him. He said that was way too much. She offered to let him get an estimate from someone else. He's pretty much been avoiding her ever since. I told her she should probably have called the police when it happened. I'm not even sure what they would do, but at least it would have been on record for something. I wonder if his insurance would cover that. She said she's gonna just leave him alone. As the one who co-signed for this car that she's still paying for, I think she needs to persist to get this fixed. I understand it was an accident, but that's what insurance is for. She's worried that it's going to be even more awkward between her and her neighbor. I reminded her that her lease is up in a few months anyway. What do you think she should do?

Signed – Sad Momma

An expert says the absolute maximum amount of time you should go without washing your bedsheets is – one week. Certified sleep coach and Content Manager for the Sleep Foundation Daniel Noyed says dirty sheets can contribute to allergies, skin breakouts, asthma and general uncleanliness. And although some people wash them every few days, and others every few weeks, months, or go even longer, if you want to avoid your sheets accumulating dirt, dead skin cells, body oils, sweat, and worst of all, dust mites, it’s best to stick to a once-per-week routine. Those who sleep with their pets, and those who suffer from allergies or asthma should freshen their linens even more often.

Canadian lawmakers have passed an amendment to the Criminal Code to allow for the prosecution of crimes committed on the Moon. Under the subheading “Lunar Gateway”, it states: “A Canadian crew member who, during a space flight, commits an act or omission outside Canada that if committed in Canada would constitute an indictable offense is deemed to have committed that act or omission in Canada.” This would include crimes en route to or on the Lunar Gateway station, currently in the works to orbit the Moon. Foreign astronauts who “threaten the life or security of a Canadian crew member” could also be prosecuted.


Apple has announced it will be releasing a new documentary about the life and career of Michael J. Fox. From “An Inconvenient Truth” director Davis Guggenheim, the film “will incorporate documentary, archival and scripted elements,” and “will recount Fox’s extraordinary story: the improbable tale of an undersized kid from a Canadian army base who rose to the heights of stardom in 1980s Hollywood.” After breaking out with the sitcom “Family Ties” in the early ’80s, Fox went on to become a box office sensation with 1985’s “Back to the Future”. Apple says the doc will also unspool Fox’s “never-before-seen private journey, including the years that followed his diagnosis, at 29, with Parkinson’s disease.” Fox retired from acting in 2020 due to declining health. Production is already underway in New York, Los Angeles, and Vancouver.

Howie Mandel is happy to be out of quarantine after contracting COVID-19, but says his time in lockdown almost drove him insane. Mandel was on “TMZ Live”, and spoke about his struggle with the virus, which he contracted during his first public outing as life returned to normal — the “Kids Choice Awards”. For Mandel, who is vaccinated, the physical symptoms weren’t bad, but the collateral damage to his mental health was real. He’s a proponent of talking about these struggles, and says being vulnerable about your mental health is important now more than ever.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A woman was rescued by 2 fire crews after falling headfirst into a vault toilet while trying to retrieve her cellphone at a park in Washington state. The woman in her mid-40s was using an outhouse at Mount Walker, a popular destination for hikers, when the accident occurred. A vault toilet is a waterless, non-flush toilet commonly used at outdoor locations — so named because they store waste in an airtight vault underground. After dropping her phone, the woman disassembled the seat and housing of the toilet, then used a dog leash to try to “fish it out.” But the attempt failed, and she slid into the toilet. Fortunately, after 20 minutes inside the vault, she was able to find and use her phone to call 911. She was uninjured.
