Show Notes for Thursday, June 29, 2023


Dear John,

I'm really fortunate. I recently married a great guy who treats me very well and he happens to be pretty well off. All in all, we're really happy. The problem is his daughter from a previous marriage. He's given her an unlimited credit card, one of the American Express Black Cards. And she's using that to fund a full-time job of spending her dad's money. It's not like it's going to break us, but it really bugs me. And he won't do anything about it. She is 26. Stays home all day. And spends money. She posts videos of what she's doing and how she's spending money. One weekend, she spent $50,000 in New York city. I told him he has to do something about it because it's not good for her as a person, and there's got to be some limit to how much he can afford. He just said that he had tried that once. He cut off her spending and she punished him by shutting him out of her life until he restored the unlimited card. And he says it's not worth it to him to lose her. What should I do? This kind of thing isn't any of my business. But it kind of IS too.... right?

One in 5 shoppers admit they’re “too lazy” to hunt around for the best deals, which could be costing them a small fortune. A survey of 2,000 adults in the UK found 19% will book the first vacation that pops up in a search if it looks half-decent, rather than shopping around for the best price. Meanwhile, 37% say they complain about the price of things like utilities, but do nothing about it. The top excuses for not making a change to save money include “it’s boring,” “it’s confusing,” and “I don’t believe the effort is worth the reward.” For those thrifty people who do spend time shopping around, they believe they save about $261 per year, on average.

Researchers say that drinking alcohol in moderation may “turn down” stress in the brain, which could, in turn, explain why studies show it benefits the heart. The head of research at the Cardiovascular Imaging Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, noted that after you have a little alcohol, you feel relaxed, and experience a “destressing” response.” They determined that “the brain changes in light to moderate drinkers explained a significant portion of the protective cardiac effects.” But because alcohol also raises the risk of cancer, the researchers aren’t advising people to imbibe.


Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first TV series is getting a second season. Netflix has announced that it has renewed “FUBAR” for season two. FUBAR stars Schwarzenegger as a CIA operative who discovers that his daughter also works for the agency, and they are forced into a reluctant partnership. The series premiered on May 25 and became Netflix’s most watched show for that week. Since its release, it has amassed 219 million hours of viewing worldwide, according to the streamer.

The home Pete Davidson smashed into with a Mercedes-Benz is no more. The 2-story Beverly Hills house, which was at the intersection of famed Rodeo Drive and a smaller street ,was recently razed, and now, just the outline of its foundation remains. At the time of the accident, damage to the house seemed very minimal, with most observers believing Davidson – or the homeowner’s insurance — would cover the repairs. But now, it’s clear that a new house will be going up on the lot. Davidson was charged last Friday with reckless driving for crashing into the home in March.

There will be no more going to Hel on bus 666. The bus to the town of Hel on Poland’s Baltic coast has long been popular with tourists. But the local bus operator, PKS Gdynia, has responded to complaints by announcing its decision to change the route number from 666 to 669. Some religious groups, it seems, had a problem with a route number signifying the devil being associated with a bus leading to a place that sounds like the word “hell” in English. The 666 bus shuttled between the village of Dębki and the town of Hel, a popular tourist destination, during the summertime.

How much money would you need to have for you to consider yourself “rich”? Well, apparently being a millionaire doesn’t cut it anymore. Charles Schwab’s 2023 Modern Wealth survey polled 1,000 Americans aged 21-75 about how they think about saving, spending, investing and wealth. It found that Americans now consider themselves wealthy if they have an average of $2.2 million in assets. Interestingly, many people, particularly those of younger generations, said that money alone doesn’t always equal wealth. Experiences, relationships, and career carry just as much currency to them. And nearly half of those polled said they already feel wealthy, despite having an average net worth of around $560,000.

Any amount of alcohol could increase the risk of developing any of more than 60 diseases, according to new research published in the journal Nature Medicine. Oxford University researchers studied the effects of alcohol on men over a period of 10 years, and found that even occasional drinkers are at a higher risk for certain conditions, including more than 30 illnesses not previously linked to alcohol.


Nine years after it was first announced, “The Flash” has finally dashed into theaters, speeding toward a #1 debut — but the DC film didn’t exactly match the lightning pace of its superhero. The Flash had a $24.5 million opening day domestically, enough to set the Ezra Miller film on pace for a #1 debut, and estimates have it set for a 4-day Juneteenth weekend take of $64 million. While “The Flash” is unlikely to match its opening projections, it’s not the only one. Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental” is looking at a debut below $30 million through Sunday, marking the lowest 3-day opening in the history of Pixar.

Linda Hamilton is joining the cast of “Stranger Things” Season 5, adding yet another icon to the cast for the Netflix series’ final season.

For decades, people worldwide (probably including your parents and grandparents) have been saying that they believe morality is declining. But new research says that’s not the case. Two psychologists examined surveys conducted in 60 countries between 1949-2019 about moral values, and found that 84% of participants said they felt morality had declined. In their own 2020 surveys, people said they thought people were less “kind, honest, nice, and good” now compared to earlier times. The researchers concluded that: “If, as people all over claim, morality has been declining steadily and precipitously for decades, then people’s reports of current morality should also have declined over the years.” They didn’t, and the researchers say this means the perception of moral decline is a cognitive illusion, or “it’s…very difficult to find any evidence that [it] has happened.”

A company in Brazil is selling what it calls the “world’s first unchewable flip-flops”. Brizza, which is marketing the product in collaboration with Pedigree, says the flip-flops are unchewable because they are made with the most bitter substance known to man…and buying a pair just may “save your dog’s life”. Dogs’ love for chewing footwear is well documented…and the company says that puts them at risk of very serious gastrointestinal problems. The unchewable flip-flops are made with something called denatonium benzoate, known as the most powerful bittering agent in the world. A single drop is enough to make an Olympic-size pool of water taste noticeably bitter, yet it is safe for consumption. It is widely used in the pet industry to discourage animals from biting and licking things they shouldn’t. LINK:

Here they are:

1. Finances: They agree on how they want to spend their money.

2. Family: There is a shared vision for how they see their future family, and how they plan to care for them.

3. Lifestyle: They enjoy putting time into the same activities, like travel or exercising.

What’s the best way to keep your dog happy and healthy as he ages? Let him run with the pack. With kids? Not so much, according to a new study. In the largest survey of its kind, researchers polled more than 21,000 dog owners to determine what health factors are important to keep canines aging well alongside their humans. From the survey, 5 key factors emerged that impact a dog’s health: neighbourhood stability, household income, social time with children, social time with animals, and owner age. But by far, the effect of social support (canine companionship) was 5 times stronger than financial and other factors. The study concluded: “This shows that for dogs, like many other animals, socialization is important to health”. But the researchers were surprised to note that there were negative effects on a dog’s health if there were children in the household.

He didn’t give in to “pier pressure”. Colin Jost is denying he was smoking ganja when he and his former “Saturday Night Live” co-star Pete Davidson decided to purchase a decommissioned Staten Island ferry. Jost wrote on Instagram: “Is it worse that I was actually stone-cold sober when we bought the ferry?” He also posted a screenshot of media coverage of Davidson’s claim that the comedians were “very stoned” when they made the nautical purchase in January 2022. Jost also wrote: “We’re excited to prove the non-believers wrong. You’re going to be BEGGING to get on this ferry in 2 years. Mark my words.” The funnymen — who bought the vessel for $280,000 with other investors — planned to turn it into an event space, but the project has stalled, for unknown reasons.

Carrie Fisher’s last movie will finally see an audience — 7 years after her death. The “Star Wars” icon wrapped filming for “Wonderwell” 6 weeks before she died on Dec. 27, 2016. Now, the movie is slated to premiere in theaters on June 23, followed by a digital release. The film’s official synopsis reads: “A coming-of-age fairy tale set between modern-day Italy and an imaginary realm just beyond, ‘Wonderwell’ follows a naive and inquisitive 12-year-old girl on a thrilling journey that transforms her world forever.” Director Vlad Marsavin said the film took 7 years to come together due to Fisher’s unexpected death, the pandemic, and visual effects challenges that stretched the budget.

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan nearly had a classic-rom-com trifecta. The pair famously starred in 1993’s “Sleepless in Seattle” and re-teamed for 1998’s “You’ve Got Mail”.

And Mrs. Hanks has just revealed the reason behind the lost trinity of rom-coms. In a podcast appearance, she said: “He turned it down because he was going through a divorce and he was very happy to be not married. So, he could not understand that a person going through a divorce would have anything other than just like, ‘I’m so happy.'”

Get set for a new form of communication with your car. Mercedes-Benz and Microsoft have agreed to add ChatGPT to Mercedes-Benz cars in the US. ChatGPT is Microsoft’s “generative artificial intelligence” software that can engage in very human-like dialog. Many vehicles already have voice-command capabilities, allowing drivers to ask the computer to adjust the temperature, find a navigation destination or place a phone call. But ChatGPT will make these voice commands more fluid and natural — and will be able to remember the context of what is being discussed and engage in back-and-forth dialog with the driver or passengers, according to Microsoft. With ChatGPT, the system will be able to respond to a wider range of requests, including ones that might not be related to the car or driver. Like what? Drivers could ask for a quick recipe, for instance, or ask what’s the best time of the year for a trip to a certain destination. The ChatGPT system can also interact with other apps, to do things like making restaurant reservations or purchasing movie tickets.

According to the old saying, a fool and his money are soon parted, but according to a new study, you’re less likely to part with that cash if you had to work hard for it. University of Notre Dame researchers found that, generally, the harder a person works for an amount of money, the less willing they are to risk those earnings on investments or other purchases. They say that while there’s a sizable amount of research suggesting that those who are careful with their money are more likely to prosper, a different relationship appears to be at play on the individual level. They say that when we assess an individual, that singular person will be less tolerant of risk when they work hard and more tolerant of risk when they don’t work hard. Why? As you can imagine, we tend to feel greater psychological ownership over our earnings when we had to work hard for them, as opposed to if we happened across a windfall, such as a lottery win, or an inheritance. So, naturally, if you toiled and sweated for your savings, you tend to choose less risky investments.

Staying up late may lead to habits which result in an early death. After a number of studies over the years showing those who stay up late into the night are more likely to suffer from health problems and die younger than “early birds”, experts now believe they’ve found the cause: Night owls tend to smoke more and drink more alcohol than those who rise and shine earlier. Swedish researchers looked at data from almost 23,000 twins who participated in a study between 1981-2018, and analyzed the death records of 8,728 people. They determined that the chance of dying is 9% higher for night owls than for early birds. The researchers noted that nonsmoking night owls didn’t have any higher risks of death, and alcohol-related deaths were an obvious contributing factor among people who stay up late.

Researchers say they’ve stumbled upon a new cancer treatment. Twice-a-week yoga practice has been shown to be effective at reducing symptoms of fatigue in people with cancer, as well as reducing the likelihood of a beaten cancer from returning. It’s well-known that physical inactivity increases the risk of getting cancer – and that most forms of exercise help prevent it. Three studies presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the world’s largest cancer conference, suggest that prescribing rest for a patient suffering from low energy levels is not the best idea. In one of the studies, yoga was found to significantly reduces inflammation among cancer survivors. In another, cancer patients showed lower levels of fatigue and reported higher levels of life satisfaction after doing yoga. And the third study found that cancer patients who are classified as “active” have a reduced risk of death by almost one-fifth.
