Show Notes for Thursday, September 15 2022


Dear John,

A girl asked me out on a date last night. We decided on a place close to her and we were supposed to go on a date today. She said she might be later because she needed a babysitter for her six-year-old and one-year-old. Anyway, long story short, I traveled over a half hour to meet up and I noticed I was going to be a few minutes late because I thought I just knew where the place was and didn't GPS it, I turned down the wrong street. I decided to call her to tell her. I said I’m sorry, I thought I knew where the place was by memory so I didn’t use a GPS and ended up turning down the wrong street. She got quiet, I asked if she was mad. She said no, that was OK she was fighting with some eyeliner anyway. OK cool. Hung up and got there like two minutes later only to witness her leaving the parking lot (turning her head off to the side so I wouldn't notice her face) and taking off on me! I drove all that way for nothing. I tried to call her but it went to voicemail. Do I give up on her completely? Do I give up on dating completely?

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

A new poll says that planning a wedding today is more difficult than it was for previous generations. A poll of 2,000 people who have recently planned or attended a wedding found that 42% need between 6 months and a year to plan their wedding. Only one in 5 believe they could do it in less than 6 months. The OnePoll survey aimed to determine how today’s weddings mix modern trends with traditional customs. Some other findings:

20% believe the practice of a bride wearing a white dress is a dated tradition.

19% think that mother-son and father-daughter dances are an outdated tradition.

25% think the tradition of the bride not being seen before the ceremony is old-fashioned.

23% believe the modern tradition of having more than one Maid of Honor or Best Man is here to stay.

They survey also showed that participants feel the perfect number of wedding guests is 115.

A county in Florida is under quarantine, but not due to a COVID-19 outbreak. Why? Snails. A population of invasive giant African land snails that can produce up to 2,500 eggs a year has invaded the New Port Richey area of Pasco County. This invasive species poses a health risk to humans because they carry a parasite called rat lungworm, which can cause meningitis. Although Giant African land snails are illegal to own as pets in the US, some exotic pet owners still keep them.


The king of adventure is back. “Indiana Jones 5” showed its first trailer on Saturday during the D23 Expo. Although it was not released online, Harrison Ford appeared onstage to speak about the clip, joined by director James Mangold and co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Looking emotional, Ford said to the crowd: “Thank you for making these films such an incredible experience for all of us. I’m very proud to say to say that this one is fantastic.” Then, pointing at Waller-Bridge, he said: “And this is one of the reasons.” The 80-year-old also insinuated that this will be his final turn as the action hero, but assured the audience: “We have a really great story to tell, as well as a movie that will kick your ass.” Indiana Jones 5 is scheduled for release on June 30, 2023.

Josh Duhamel has seemingly said “I do” to his fiancee, Audra Mari. The “Transformers” star and former beauty pageant competitor reportedly tied the knot during a scenic rooftop ceremony at the Jasper Hotel in Fargo ND. After their nuptials, the newlyweds are said to have stopped by a bar called Duffy’s Tavern, to ring in the celebrations with a few shots. The bar uploaded photos of the bride and groom in a tuxedo and full wedding dress onto its Facebook page. LINK:

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

The Queen’s funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey on Mon. Sept. 19, it has been announced. The state funeral for Her Majesty will start at 11am (6am EDT) at the church in central London. The Queen’s oak coffin was taken from Balmoral Castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh yesterday, on a slow 6-hour journey by hearse, to allow mourners gathered in the towns and villages to pay their respects. Today, the coffin will be transferred in procession to St Giles’s Cathedral where it will lie at rest until Tuesday, before being taken via RAF plane to London. Beginning Wednesday, the Queen will lie in state in Westminster Hall for “4 clear days”, and the public will be able to file past to see the late monarch’s coffin.

King Charles III was officially proclaimed Britain’s monarch Saturday in a pomp-filled ceremony steeped in ancient tradition and political symbolism — and, for the first time, broadcast live on TV and online. Surprisingly, Kate Middleton and Prince William — the new Prince and Princess of Wales — stepped out for their first outing together since receiving their new titles, accompanied by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The foursome took an emotional tour of the tributes to the late Queen and greeted well-wishers at Windsor Castle, before leaving in the same car, driven by William. William thought the walkabout to greet the crowds “was an important show of unity at an incredibly difficult time for the family,” according to a royal source.

A Dutch city has become the first in the world to ban ads for meat as part of a plan to reduce greenhouse gases and fight climate change. The city, Haarlem, banned the advertisements in public spaces in an effort to drive down meat consumption, and thereby reduce carbon emissions. The Amsterdam suburb, with a population of 160,000, plans to enact the ban in 2024. The move is in response to recent studies that suggest global food production and consumption, particularly meat, accounts for about one-third of climate-warming greenhouse gases.

GOOD NEWS: Brought to you by

A new technique that destroys cancer using sound waves also spurs the immune system to kill off any remaining tumors. The non-invasive treatment developed by the University of Michigan only needs to be partially effective to stop cancer from spreading. The treatment, called histotripsy, noninvasively focuses ultrasound waves to mechanically destroy target tissue with millimeter precision. In many cases, the entirety of a cancerous tumor cannot be targeted directly due to mass, size, location or stage, but researchers investigated the effects of partially destroying tumors with sound to 50-75% and found the technique was still very effective. They showed that in 80% of cases the immune system broke down the rest of the tumor, and it did not return. It is currently being tested on humans following successful trials in rats.
