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?

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

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.

The new rules explicitly state that “Only human creators are eligible to be submitted for, consideration for, nominated for, or win a Grammy Award.” That said, music authored by a human and augmented with generative AI elements is permitted, so long as the human’s contribution to a work is “meaningful”.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

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 DÄ™bki and the town of Hel, a popular tourist destination, during the summertime.
