I’m more than a little sleepy this week. On my 3 am drive home from work, my wife informed me that our 2 year old is sick. This meant I was up with him the whole rest of the night, clear up to recording time this morning. The news brings several women who seem to be “weird adjacent,” including the return of the McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce. The “Jackass Of The Week” left me with more questions than answers, and at long last This week’s “Recommended Listening” feature goes to the Brand X Podcast.
A 16 year-old girl’s lung collapsed while screaming at a “One Direction” concert. Doctors found a small tear in her lung and air pockets in multiple other organs. They sent her home saying that the tear will heal and air will reabsorb on it’s own.
Three Chinese women were left stuck in a South Korean airport after traveling to have extreme plastic surgery. The women’s faces were extremely swollen and bandaged and they were completely unrecognizable compared to their passport photos.
A North Dakota man was arrested at a gas station after he was seen trying to light his cigarette with the gas pump handle. Let’s be fair, he was arrested for possession of meth, but it was the gas pump bit that he got everyone’s attention in the first place.
Another short show this week. I'm sticking to just my weekly what's goings on this time around. This includes our recent drama over treating a possibly sick tortoise and my recent YouTube obsession with blacksmithing videos. CURSE YOU YOUTUBE RABBIT HOLES!!
Looks like it's going to be shorter shows for the next couple weeks. Long story short, my boys being in a summer camp program has totally messed with my daily home schedule and I just don't have the time for longer shows for a couple weeks. But I did give you a little teaser for an upcoming feature.
