Hope you had a good Father’s Day. This week’s news brings on a few past stories including an ironic twist for a bank robber. I’ve also got some good news for gamers, a tattoo artist you definitely don’t want to cross and a sad sweet story about a couple from India. The “Jackass of The Week” comes courtesy of a seriously depressing study about chocolate milk. And finally, this week’s “Recommended Listening” features the dark and twisted world from “Welcome to Night Vale.”
A New York woman is suing a Queens casino, it’s parent company, and the manufacturer of it’s slot machines after she was denied a $43 million jackpot from a penny slot machine. The New York State Gaming Commission ruled the jackpot to be an error.
Man Who Robbed Bank To Escape Wife, Sentenced To House Arrest
A 71 year old man who robbed a bank in 2016 claiming he wanted to get arrested to get away from his wife, has been sentenced to 6 months of house arrest. Lawyers and doctors ruled that the behavior was a result of undiagnosed depression and he should not serve jail time.
A tattoo artist in Sao Paolo, Brazil caught a 17 year old trying to steal his bike. As punishment, he tattooed his forehead with, “sou ladrão e vacilão,” which translates to, “I am a thief and a loser.” The tattooer and a friend, who assisted in the incident, were arrested for torturing the boy.
A recent Italian study on gaming and sexual health found that gamers appear less likely to experience premature ejaculation during sex. On the other hand, they also found that male gamers overall had a lower sex drive in general, so that may be the true reason for the low rate of PE.
A man in Indian woke up to find he had been bitten by a poisonous snake. After telling his wife that he loved her and wanted them to die together, she allowed him to bite her on the wrist as well. He later died, but she was treated at a local hospital and survived.

Better late than never, this week I have some fun Halloween stories to share including one about an entire Burger King. I chat about the new Wonder Woman trailer.

Congratulations to the Chicago Cubs for World Series Victory
After a 108 year stretch, the Chicago Cubs finally won their first World Series since 1908. I’m not a sports fan but all the congratulations in the world are due to them for finally ending the streak.
A woman in Jamaica, Queens, New York was left very disappointed after seeming to win nearly $43 million on a “penny” slot machine. The problem, that machine only had a max jackpot of $6500. Casino officials removed the machine to investigate and found that it (obviously) had malfunctioned.
Unfortunately for her, the actual prize won was only $2.25, according to the printout in the machine. As a consolation for the confusion, the casino offered the woman a complimentary steak dinner.
Sidebar: Celebrity worship is fundamentally stupid. People do utterly brainless things all to imitate somebody famous.
Enter the extreme cases of Kardashian worship and the super fans of the Kardashian /Jenner clan that will blindly buy anything with their name. In this particular case, fans of the, frequently sold out, Kylie Jenner lip kits have resorted to purchasing knockoff versions that ultimately end up containing less than safe ingredients. In some cases girls have had their lips glued shut, or complained of a gasoline smell.
