Show Notes for Thursday, February 23, 2023


Dear John,

I recently started dating a guy. I'm falling in love with him. He's funny, outgoing, adventurous, and smart. Plus, he really likes me, and I think he's falling in love with me too, but he's a bit of a clean freak. He has a robot vacuum that is always bumping round his place. He still constantly complains about his dirty floors. He also constantly picks up after me. I left a wine glass on his coffee table for about 10 minutes after finishing a glass. He asked if I was going to put that away. I used a hand towel in the bathroom and he told me he would appreciate it if I made sure it was straightened after using it. He's so tidy, I feel like I'm dating my grandma. Do you think I should move on? Should I try to adjust to this?

Thank you,

I'm a Mess

Two-thirds of adults admit that they allow eating in bed – but what foods are off-limits? In a survey of 2,000 people, just over half agreed that if any meal should be eaten under the duvet, it’s breakfast, and things like yogurt, toast and croissants are all on the list of “allowed” foods. So are ice cream, pizza and fruit. But 52% admitted they can’t really enjoy eating in bed because they’re too worried about making a mess. And probably for that exact reason, here are the top-10 foods that people said are “banned” from bed: Soup, Pasta and sauce, Roast dinner, Stir fry, Curry, Fish and chips, Tacos, Ramen, Hot dogs, and Sausage and mashed potatoes.

While you've probably uttered the phrase "sweating like a pig" at least once in your life, it turns out the saying actually makes no sense because pigs barely sweat! Pigs have very few sweat glands, so any sweat they do produce has little to no effect on their body temperature. To cool down during hot weather and maintain a stable body temperature, pigs will wallow in water or mud. They can also pant to cool themselves down.


Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is the most-watched Marvel film premiere on Disney+ worldwide, based on hours streamed in its first 5 days, according to the company.

Disney did not provide specific viewing numbers, and that the claim is based on its own internal measurements. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” was nominated for 5 Academy Awards.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

The delicious looking foam on the top of a latte is inspiring a better way to treat cancer. Potentially ground-breaking research from the University of Iowa is creating new materials that may figuratively spray cancer away. The new materials, called gas-entrapping materials (GeMs), come in the form of foams, solids, or hydrogels. Researchers designed them to carry high concentrations of therapeutic gases directly into tissues, including tumors. Foam GeMs are made using a whipping siphon, essentially the same device baristas use to make foams on hot chocolate and coffee drinks. However, the team reverse-engineered this one to accept various gases, including oxygen, which have been proven to make cancer cells more vulnerable to radiation or chemotherapy.

A Venezuelan man has become the first person to be permanently tattooed by a – monkey. Funky Matas, an artist and social media influencer, already holds the Guinness Record for the most signatures tattooed on his back (over 220). He trained a small monkey to handle a tattoo gun and then let himself be tattooed by the animal in what is considered a first-of-its-kind experiment. He wrote on social media that “The intention…was to create the logo of the NFTs project that I started with my partner…And while the tattoo itself wasn’t the best in terms of quality, the event was a fascinating look into the capabilities of these highly intelligent animals.” LINK:
