Show Notes for Thursday, November 10, 2022


Dear John,

My wife has been using the same perfume for over a decade. I don't know how to get her to use something else. It's the same perfume my first girlfriend used twenty years ago. Many times she pops into my head when I smell that scent. Do I tell my wife that? I tried buying her a different perfume for Christmas our very first year together, but she never really used it. I've never told her about this... I almost did one time and it seemed weird to say out loud “your scent makes me think of another woman”. I've toiled with this for a long time. As we approach Christmas I'm thinking this would be a good time to try to get her something new. Do I tell her why? Do I leave well enough alone? Is there a way to get my brain to forget the girl from twenty years ago? I have absolutely no feelings for her anymore. I don't fantasize about her or anything like that. But that scent just reminds me of her, like the scent of a pipe reminds me of my grandpa and the scent of fresh-cut grass brings me back to playing football with my friends as a kid. I think it would be best to just get her to wear different perfume, but how do I do that? Or am I wrong for even thinking that?

Thank you,

Cautious Husband

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Up until now, saying “I just don’t have time” has been a pretty good way to justify the fact that you never work out. But a new study might have just put an end that excuse. Scientists at the University of Sydney in Australia say that 2-minute “bursts” of vigorous physical activity totaling just 15 minutes per week are associated with a lower risk of death. That’s right, a quick, 2-minute workout each day may help you live longer! The study author said: “Given that lack of time is the most commonly reported barrier to regular physical activity, accruing small amounts sporadically during the day may be a particularly attractive option for busy people.”

The best time to weigh yourself is first thing in the morning. That’s when you’ll get your most accurate weight because your body has had the overnight hours to digest and process whatever you ate and drank the day before. And you should try to turn that into a regular part of your routine. That way, you’re less likely to forget, and it is the easiest way to see trends over time. Weight fluctuates, so a pound or 2 isn’t the issue; it’s the extra 2 or more that stick around for several days that you want to pay attention to.


DC’s Stargirl” is coming to an end. The series will conclude with its third season, which is currently airing on The CW. The series, created by Geoff Johns, stars Brec Bassinger as high school student ‘Courtney Whitmore’. The show’s cancellation comes less than a month after Nexstar Media Group completed its acquisition of the network and is the latest series coming to an end, joining “The Flash”, “Riverdale” and “Nancy Drew”. New episodes of Stargirl will continue to air on Wednesdays through December 7.

Sharon Stone has revealed that her doctors found a “large fibroid tumor” after she was misdiagnosed and given the wrong treatment. Now, she’s urging women to always seek a second medical opinion. The “Basic Instinct” star wrote on Instagram that she was treated with a “double epidural” but was still in considerable pain, so she sought out another medical professional. She says the second set of doctors found “a large fibroid tumor that must come out.” The 64-year-old wrote on Instagram: “Ladies in particular: Don’t get blown off GET A SECOND OPINION, It can save your life.” She ended her post saying: “I’ll be down 4-6 weeks for a full recovery.”

Jimmy Fallon says he’s in. On “The Tonight Show”, he accepted the invitation of Cameron Crowe’s to reprise his role from the “Almost Famous” movie for the new Broadway stage musical adaptation. More than 3 years ago, when writer-director Crowe appeared on the show, Crowe made a casual pledge to his old Almost Famous actor Fallon that when the then-developing musical adaptation of the film makes it to Broadway, Fallon has an open invitation to reprise his role as harried (and hairy) band manager ‘Dennie Hope’. When the invitation was extended again during Crowe’s appearance on Tuesday’s show, Fallon exclaimed: “I’m in!”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Have you ever thought, just for a second, that your dog gave you a funny look after you made a mistake? As it turns out, yes, they’re quietly judging you for your apparent incompetence, at least if they’re female. Researchers in Japan found that female dogs “judge” people after watching them make an error or act incompetently. The team examined how both male and female dogs reacted to people who either acted competently or incompetently. The scientists concluded that female dogs tend to want to be around smarter humans, and tend to avoid those who can’t even open a jar of food.

You’ve probably heard that, just as every human has unique fingerprints, so do dogs have unique “noseprints”. And now, finally, someone is using that info for good. A South Korean company has developed a biometric recognition tool allowing dogs to be identified by their nose prints. Once pet owners register the nose pattern and general info of their dog into an app called “Anipuppy”, the information can be easily recalled by scanning the dog’s nose print. With the new technology, which the company says is 99.9% accurate, people who find lost dogs can quickly and directly communicate with their owners through the app. The company says its system is based on a 3D biometric algorithm, and it is less intrusive and faster than current microchip pet-identification systems.

If you’re one of those people who created a social media page for your dog, then you’ll want to know about this:, an online retailer of pet gifts, is searching for its next “Chief Fluff Officer,” a doggy gig that pays up to $10,000 a year. In its ad, the company says “The successful pup will be a natural behind the camera, always happy to strike a pose and genuinely enjoy having their photo taken…as they try out our latest personalized gifts.” But the requirements are a little ruff: The Chief Fluff Officer must stay groomed and camera ready, and be “comfortable showing off their best poses, sassy struts, tail wags, tricks and expressions” online. The job also involves some travel. LINK:

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A woman who is set to inherit millions of euros has already decided that she wants to get rid of 90% of her wealth. Marlene Engelhorn is a member of the German industrial family whose patriarch, Friedrich, founded the chemical giant BASF in 1865. Having received the news that she is about to receive her share of a multi-billion dollar fortune due to the recent death of her grandmother, the 30-year-old isn’t planning to donate the money to charity. Instead, she has co-founded a group called Tax Me Now, and is part of a movement of millionaires who are urging governments to take more of their money in the form of increased inheritance and wealth taxes. She has committed to giving away at least 90% of her inheritance, and hopes it will go to the state in the form of tax.

THE LIST: Brought to you by

According to a survey of UK motorists, nearly 95% have been pronouncing the name of car manufacturer BMW wrong. (And so, apparently, have I.) Even though it’s just 3 letters, most people assume they should use the English versions of those letters, which – being as it’s a German car – is not correct. It’s actually pronounced (no, not ‘Beemer’), “bee em vee” rather than “bee em double yoo”. Here are some other correct pronunciations of commonly mispronounced auto manufacturers…

Renault – Reh-noh (44% got it wrong)

Porsche – Porsh-ah (76% wrong)

Peugeot – Pe-zhoh (86% wrong)

Volkswagen – Fokes-vah-gun (91% wrong)

Hyundai – Hun-day (94% wrong)
