Wouldn't Believe Me If I Told You

Yi!
 
Unbelievable things happen every day! A Seattle couple is on an incredible lucky streak even though their car got broken into! The thieves that broke into the couple’s car didn’t take their lottery ticket that was sitting on top of one of the items that they stole. But it wasn’t just any lottery ticket it was the one million dollar lottery ticket that they bought! Amazing! Taylor Swift gave out neon bright bracelets at her concert and they saved teens lives. On the way home from the concert three teenage girls got into a car accident. When they crashed they couldn’t find a cell phone to use to call for help and that’s when the teenagers used their bracelets to light the way as a flare to flag down other cars. The teenagers called for help and removed themselves from the wreckage and were taken to the hospital. A Mississippi deputy was almost murdered by three men but was saved by his K-9 dog. Three men were cutting a cop with a box cutter and were about to slit his throat while they were dragging him into the woods. The deputy at the last moment pushed the button to open the automatic door that would release his dog. The dog attacked the three men and saved his master’s life!
 
Slacker says that he and Steve got glow in the dark bracelets at a concert in Napa Valley!
 
Steve says that Taylor Swift almost killed some girls and then saved their lives!

OPP: Offensive Boyfriend

Yi!
 
Today’s OPP is from Emma!
 
Yi! I love my boyfriend, he's a great guy and really loves me a lot. The only problem is that every time we go out with my friends, he does something really embarrassing, like telling an off-color joke that nobody laughs at or saying something inappropriate to someone. I really love him and I don't want to seem so shallow but the truth is that he always embarrasses me in public and it's giving me second thoughts about bringing him anywhere anymore. It's like he doesn't have a filter when we are out. What can I do to curb his behavior so that we can stay together?- Emma
 
Slacker says that if this OPP’s name wasn’t Emma he would think it was his wife. He says that maybe he needs to dump her because she doesn’t except who he is in public. Slacker says that he has no filter; he says what he wants to say when he wants to say it.
 
Steve says Emma should offer him little treats to get him to change, just like training a dog. He says that he probably just feels comfortable and that’s probably how he acts around his friends.
 
How can Emma curb her boyfriend’s behavior so she won’t have to break up with him?

Eww...

Yi!
 
The term Party Poopers just got taken to a whole new level in Pennsylvania! A teen and her family were celebrating her 16th birthday with about 40 guests. While the family and friends were outside enjoying the nice day in the pool, all of the sudden human feces were falling from the sky and onto them! A guest at the party used a smartphone app to find that three airplanes were flying around their residential area at the time of the fly by pooping. Officials at The Federal Aviation Administration stated that the incident was being investigated because airplanes do not eject their waste while in the air but rather at the airports. A man who has suffered for 40 years with a blocked nostril can finally breathe after he sneezed out toy dart that has been stuck in his nose since childhood. The toy dart he sneezed out was the size of a penny! The family was amazed that the dart was still in his nostril because at the time of him sticking the dart up his nose his family had taken him to the hospital. Heath Kendall had a bit of a spill in his bathroom after his toilet exploded. Heath stated, “It was literally a geyser coming out of my toilet!” Raw sewage started spewing out of his toilet going 4 feet high. But it wasn’t just one of his bathrooms… it was two! He also stated, “… it was all human feces covering my walls, covering my tub, my floor, everything. The sinks are full, the tub has toilet paper that came up the through the drain. It’s bad.” Six other homes in his residential area also felt the blow and had to get clean-up crews to clean up the waste. It took the residents 15 minutes to figure out who to call first.
 
Slacker says that he thinks we should all be spelling EWW with more E’s, like EEEW! He says the plane dropping poop wouldn’t be as bad as if it was a barbeque and not a 16th birthday party.
 
Steve says that residents should get a warning before there is construction done on the water and sewage main.
 
Lil’ D said that he was throwing his baby sister up in the air and of course he had his mouth open when she decided to puke. Her puke went in and around his mouth!
 
What EWWW story do you have?

Predictions

Yi!
 
What do Nostradamus and a Dutch man have in common? They both have predicted a high magnitude earthquake that will strike in California very soon. Who knows if they are right? Predictions are nothing but a waiting game. Anyone can make a prediction, but they don’t become reality until they actually happen. Frank Hooger posted a video on YouTube explaining why there will be an 8.8 magnitude that will hit California and many have viewed the video. Frank also claimed that he predicted the second earthquake that just hit Nepal two days before it happened. He says he knows exactly when the earthquake will be and he hopes he is wrong. A psychic named, Psychic Bob has predicted that outcome of the 2015 presidential election. Bob Hickman states that Mike Huckabee will be the 2016 winner after beating out Hillary Clinton. As well all know the royal baby was born earlier this month and as a tradition people around the world try and guess the name of the baby. Well a woman in the U.K. predicted the correct baby name 24-hours before the name was revealed. Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is what she predicted and Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is what the royals named their newborn. The woman said she was shocked when she correctly named the baby and all of her friends said that she should have made a bet on the name.
 
Slacker thinks there are things out there that send us signals into a look at the future. He says that Lil’ D’s next dogs name will be Jedidiah Snowball.
 
Steve says that Psychic Bob is such an official name that he must be real!
 
What predictions have you made that have come true?

Family Feud

Yi!
 
Family feuds are inevitable and can make some good stories to tell the kids someday, however I’m not so sure about these three current stories! Florida twin brothers fought each other in their front yard. They weren’t just punching each other; they were throwing bricks at each other. The cause of the feud is unknown; however one of the 52-year-old brothers was badly injured after he took a brick to the eye! Both men were arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. One sibling does a good deed and donated her kidney to her brother. She is now filing a restraining order against him for threatening her. The brother left threatening voicemail’s on his sister’s phone and stated that he was going to come to her house and choke her to death. The brother arrived at her house, approached her, called her names, and then tried to punch her, but not before the woman’s husband stopped the punch and scuffled with him. The brother’s last words to his sister were, "I knew I shouldn't have accepted a kidney from an (expletive) like you!" The reason to their feud is also unclear. 47-year-old Elaine Robinson, a Florida resident, attacked her father with a Listerine bottle. The father and daughter shared a home together and began to fight over an unclear reason. Elaine poured an entire bottle of Listerine on her father. He smelled minty fresh and she was carted off to jail for domestic battery.
 
Slacker says that Steve is lucky because his family is no longer with us because he never has to have a family feud. He says that he and his brothers have had a long time family feud.
 
Steve says that the woman who donated her kidney to her brother can never get a real restraining order from him because her kidney is inside of his body.
 
What is the worst family feud you have encountered?

OPP: Relationship Scam

Yi!
 
Today’s OPP is from Candy!
 
Yi Guys,
My roommate started dating a guy she met online. They have never met in person but they do talk on the phone and get 'intimate' during their conversations, but he has already proposed to her. He claims to work in Alaska and says he will come see her as soon as he can get an extended period off of work. He even gave her access to one of his bank accounts because he had an issue with one of his checks clearing and didn't have the ability in Alaska to make sure it got into his account. I think she's clearly getting scammed. The problem is, she is blinded by love and doesn't want to see him for what he truly is. Every time I approach her about it, she gets defensive and says I'm just jealous because I'm still single. How do I get her to realize that this guy is a scam artist that is going to burn her? Or am I wrong and do things like this really work for people? -Candy
 
Slacker says that he is extremely suspicious of everything online. He says that she cannot be a victim if this situation goes badly because she was stupid enough to go along with it, even considering all of the red flags. He says that the excuse “blinded by love” doesn’t fly because when you are “blinded by love” you are acting stupid.
 
Steve says that even after dating a woman for a long time he would never give her his banking account.
 
Lil’ D thinks that their love is real, but understand the bank account thing is sketchy. He says that his step mom has the exact same situation and her significant other lives in Alaska. He says about a year ago she flew to Alaska and now she is moving there to marry him.
 
Do you think Candy’s roommate is getting scammed? What advice do you have for Candy?

GMD: Elope or Traditional Wedding

Yi!
 
Vicky and Brian are about to get married and they cannot seem to make a decision on what type of wedding they want. There are two types of weddings, traditional or going down to the courthouse and quickly eloping. Brian wants a traditional wedding and Vicky wants to just elope. She thinks that weddings are a waste of money and that what they do save from just quickly eloping they can invest and be ahead of the game. He thinks that Vicky will end up regretting not wearing a wedding dress and having a father-daughter dance. He also thinks that the wedding is a very important part to starting their new lives together. She says that weddings just are not important to her.
 
Slacker says that weddings are a lot more romantic then going to the DMV, though he says that weddings are overly expensive. He thinks that you go on a really nice trip and still spend half of the money spent on what a wedding would cost. Slacker thinks that both parties will regret each other’s stances.
 
Steve says that weddings are a waste of money. He says that he never dreamed of having a wedding and thinks that weddings are just getting more expensive. He feels that Vicky is using her head and Brian is using his heart.
 
Whose side are you on? What type of wedding should they have?

Pampered Pets

YI!
 
Dog is a man’s best friend, but some people are taking it way too far! Wang Sicong, son of one of the wealthiest men in China is using his wealth in an interesting way.  He just caught a lot of flak on social media for posting a picture of his Siberian Husky wearing the two 30,000 dollar gold Apple watches he bought for it! The picture that was posted of the pooch and it’s new bling stated, “I have new watches! I’m supposed to have four watches since I have four long legs.”  If that isn’t bad a woman in Queens, New York left her entire Florida vacation home to her dog! 60-year-old Rose Bolasny, is also leaving her dog her jewels, wardrobe, and trust fund! Rose says, “She is the best dressed pet in the world. I wanted to make sure, God forbid something happened to my husband or I, that Bella Mia was taken care of. I’m sure everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I don't really look at the negative; I look at the positive of it.” Have you ever wanted to dine with your dogs? Well now there is a company that has made a “Pet High Chair” for only 50 dollars! Now your pooch can eat at the dinner table! A new study shows that 16% of families order their dogs fast food! Most popular fast food restaurants for dogs are McDonalds and Burger King. If you want your dog to sleep in style, you can buy the new high tech dog kennel for only 31,000 dollars! The Dream DogHouse has two indoor living spaces, dining and entertainment. It is made out of Astroturf and comes with a doggy treadmill, hot tub, call bell, family and friend portraits, skylight, and of course a snack dispenser! And if your dog is suffering from droopy eyes, don’t worry you can be with the other U.S. dog owners and get your puppy some Botox and an eye lift! Americans spend over 62 million dollars on plastic surgery for pets!    
 
Slacker says give your money to charity, not to your dog!  He says that he knows people who built their entire house into a scratching post for their cat. He says they cut holes into their walls at varying heights and put carpet on the walls. He says hopefully they don’t sell their house because their buyers will only be for crazy cat people!
 
Steve says that he has no pets because he can barely keep himself alive!
 
Do you or someone you know pamper their pets?

Stuck

YI!
 
Getting stuck isn’t the best thing to happen, but unfortunately it does happen! A man on a London train got stuck in the toilet! 38-year-old, Steven Staples, tried for minutes to get out of the toilet. He tried swiping his credit card through the door and even yelled for help. After struggling for minutes he resorted to Twitter to save him from his sticky situation. Staples tweeted to the rail staff for help. He stated, “I locked it but it wouldn't unlock again after, I tried a credit card, but didn't want to break it so turned to Twitter." The company responded and 15 minutes later after his first tweet he was rescued. At least it was just a toilet and not a storm drain. A Nashville man was stuck in a storm drain for four days before getting rescued by firefighters. The man was stuck in a 12 by 14 inches wide pipe and the reason is unsure on how he got stuck in the pipe. It took 45 minutes to free the man. He was then taken to a hospital and was treated for dehydration and cuts. A naked man was stuck on a drawbridge in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The naked man was walking across the bridge when it began to rise which caused the man to run to the top of the bridge. Firefighter’s ladders were too small to rescue him, so they harnessed the man and the bridge was lowered.
 
Slacker says that just today he got stuck on an elevator coming up to the studios! He says that he is extremely claustrophobic and hates the idea of knowing that he is just hanging in between floors. He said the doors barely opened on a random floor after stopping for several minutes.
 
Steve asks Slacker, “Which corner of the elevator would you choose to pee in?”
 
What have you been stuck in?

OPP: Guns Next Door

YI!
 
We got forwarded a Facebook message about a guy in need of some serious advice.
 
I need some help fellas (and ladies)...I have a buddy who has a neighbor who is into guns. He has a middle school son that constantly gets suspended from school, acts out etc...basically has some pretty major behavioral problems. Today my buddy called me in disbelief and pretty afraid. Apparently the dad bought his son a shotgun and a .22 caliber pistol. My buddy went over and they were in the living room checking them out and putting the magazine in and out of the pistol. My buddies kids play over there from time to time with this kid and he is really nervous now. The neighbor doesn't have a gun safe, keeps them in a closet with action and barrel locks, but I have met this kid and he is a prime candidate to do something stupid. My buddy called looking for advice....and I didn't know what to tell him. He's contemplating selling his house out of fear that this kid is gonna do something stupid one day......and from what I've seen of the little boy when I've been over.... I don't think I can honestly comfort him in that thought.
 
Slacker says it is never too late to interfere with a sketchy situation. He says that his gut immediately says that he has to do something. He says that he is not anti-gun he is anti-unstable people. He says the weapon they use is not the issue it’s the mental state the person is in with the weapon.
 
Steve says he needs to call the police and get something down on record, however he knows that would only turn into a “I told you so” after the problem occurred. He says that if the man goes directly to the neighbor that nothing will change because “you cannot parent another child.”

It Should Be Illegal to ____

YI!
 
Some things should just be illegal but definitely not the band Nickelback! Australia is not a fan of the rock group and they are now on the Queensland police force’s wanted list for “crimes against music.” The police have issued a “BOLO” on their twitter feed which means “be on the lookout” while the band is there touring. The police force also stated on their Facebook page, “Police are on the lookout for these men who are believed to be impersonating musicians around Boondall this evening. Avoid the area. It may be hazardous to your hearing and street cred.” A photo pf the band was also published under the wanted list of the Down Under!
 
Slacker says that he loves Nickelback! He says that you should not be able to get on a bike while wearing skin tight uniforms unless you work for the post office (because they wear tight uniforms) or Lance Armstrong. He says that he does not want to look at people not working towards the Tour de France wearing tight uniforms for no reason. Slacker says that he has to already drive around the bikers, so he does not want to be looking at your big butt while doing it!
 
Steve says he is very mad at the Australian police for wanting Nickelback on stupid crimes. He says that he and Slacker stumbled into one of their concerts and they both agreed that they “rock out” and were awesome to watch! Steve says that he wants it to be illegal for people who use the self-checkout line in the grocery store and don’t take their receipts! He says that he should be able to punch people in the parking lot for not taking their receipts.
 
Lil’ D wants it to be illegal for people to take the elevator to a floor that is not far away. He also wants it to be illegal to mow your lawn before nine in the morning.
 
What annoying or silly thing do you think should be illegal?

Sorry

Yi!
 
We have all done something in our life that we are not proud of. Something we've wanted to apologize for.  
 
A former high school bully reached out and apologized to one of the kids he tormented in junior high twenty years ago. The man sent the apology on Facebook after his 10-year-old daughter asked him if he ever bullied anyone.  His apology:
“Hey Chad, I was recently talking with my 10-year-old daughter about bullies. She asked me if I ever bullied anyone and I had to say “yes.” What came to my mind is how s**tty and mean I was to you when we were in Jr. High. I want to apologize. If we lived in the same state I would apologize to your face. I don’t even know if you remember, but I do and I am sorry.”
The victim said about six or seven kids from the football team would harass, insult and threaten to kill him. He is now a visual designer and brand consultant in Hollywood.
 
Slacker says when he really screws up, he does apologize. Slacker wants to apologize to anyone he has offended… (Just kidding).  
 
Steve says he has apologized for most of the big things he has done wrong. Steve wants to apologize for what he did a few days ago. He was having a conversation with someone at an event and was blocking the pathway for tons of people(without realizing it). After the conversation was over, he looked around a saw a huge line of people waiting to get through.
 
If you want to make amends, now is your chance! What are you sorry for?

OPP: Working Mom Surrogate

Yi!
 
Working women know how hard it can be to balance a career and having a baby. Today's OPP thinks she has a solution to that problem...she just needs your help getting her husband on board! Here is Janet’s problem:
 
Janet is very successful in her career. She currently holds a high position in a corporate job. Janet and her husband want to start a family, but Janet believes she won’t have time to actually carry the baby.  She wants to hire a surrogate to carry their baby.  Janet is the bread winner of the family and doesn’t have time to take off work to be sick, go to doctor appointments, go on maternity leave, etc. Her husband however, is completely against having a surrogate carry their baby. He wants Janet to carry the baby, or not have a baby at all.
 
Slacker says he is old school. If something breaks, he would fix the problem himself instead of hiring someone to do it for him. He understands where Janet’s husband is coming from.
 
Steve understands where Janet is coming from. If something breaks, he would hire someone to come and fix it for him!

Stole It

Yi!
 
We have all done it at least one time in our lives. We’re talking about stealing! 
 
A man caught with more than 1,000 stolen eggs in his fridge has claimed he stole them from the factory where he worked for personal consumption. The egg fanatic had also scribbled dates on them in pen to remind him when to eat his next egg-heavy meal. The 47-year-old security guard, Mr. Gu, was spotted by police smuggling two suitcases of stolen goods out of the factory where he worked in Pinghu City, China. His employers were quoted saying: ‘We thought he was a hardworking and dutiful guard who enjoyed working nightshifts because he didn’t have a family to go home to. Now we have found out that he did it so he could roam around and steal without anyone seeing him.’ Upon further investigation, Police found more than 1,000 eggs in his fridge, as well as soap, meat, boxes of tissues and bottles of detergent. Gu said, ‘I lost count how many times I have stolen. Probably hundreds of times. I have stolen everything in my house. ‘ A spokesman for the factory said: ‘We are as surprised as everyone else that it was the security guard.
 
According to multiple sources, two drunk guys stole a golf cart from the Quail Hollow clubhouse, drove it five miles north to Selwyn Pub, parked it on the bar’s front patio, and ordered two shots before abandoning the cart and leaving the bar undetected. The amount of confidence it takes to drunk-drive a golf cart five miles is remarkable (unless you’re actually playing golf, then it’s normal), but what’s even more staggering is that they managed to make it all the way to the bar without getting pulled over and arrested.
 
Slacker says he has stolen some stuff before, but not as much as Steve has! Slacker says that when he worked at a grocery store, he would steal stuff all the time. He said that his mom used to buy the generic brands of pain relievers, so he decided to steal Advil and Tylenol.
 
Steve says it’s easier to say what he hasn’t stolen rather than what he has stolen. He says he has never stolen a car before!
 
What is the craziest thing you have ever stolen?

Terrible Teachers

Yi!
 
The school year is wrapping up, so why not talk about bad teachers! We can all relate on this subject but I don’t think we have had teachers as bad as these next two! Georgia teacher is being charged with four misdemeanors on counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. A parent discovered text messages between her son and his teachers regarding a scheduled time for the student to have relations in his classroom closet from 7:30 to 8:30 with his girlfriend. The middle school math teacher then implied over the text messages that he did not have any condoms to provide to the young boy. The mother pulled her son out of the school and turned the man into the school system. The math teacher was 25-years-old. Relations or not it can’t be as bad as a teacher killing and eating the classroom pet in front of the class to teach the students about life! A South Korean teacher bit a hamster to death before consuming in front of his students. He says that his students were teasing the hamster and he needed to teach them about the value of life. The parents contacted the police and a complaint has been filed on the teacher.
 
Slacker says all teachers get caught for bad acts, so why even try to do anything bad?
 
Steve says that the middle school kids are only 14-years-old they don’t need an entire hour in the classroom closet!

OPP: Drinks With Clients

Yi!
 
Today’s OPP is from Bridget!
 
Yi,
I work as a hair stylist at a high-end salon. A month ago, I had drinks with a male client without telling my husband. The next time the client came in he left a HUGE tip. Since then, I have had drinks with him and several other male clients without telling my husband. The more drinks, the larger the tips! I am starting to feel guilty and like I am cheating. My best friend says I am cheating and should stop seeing my clients for drinks. My other friend says there is nothing wrong with the 'business meetings'. Am I cheating? Should I tell my husband? – Bridgette
 
Slacker says that Bridget is most definitely cheating because she is not telling and hiding something from her husband! He says that hairstylists are flirty because the more you flirt the more you get! He says that she is going too far! Slacker says that if she didn’t think it was wrong she would tell her husband and not write into the show. Slacker thinks she needs to live by the golden rule! He proposes the question, “Would Bridget want her husband to go for drinks without her knowledge?” He never went for drinks with the person who cut his hair. Slacker says that she could “ride the lie” and not tell the husband if she stops meeting for drinks. He then changes his mind and thinks she needs to be upfront with her husband.
 
Steve says, “You gotta get er done!”  He says it’s just drinks and who doesn’t go for drinks? He says that this is purely business because she has to build up a cliental. He thinks that maybe she should stop this behavior and just not tell her husband. He says that she is just using her femininity as a sales tool!
 
Is Bridget cheating? Should she tell her husband?

Weird Thing You Got Paid To Do

Yi!
 
We have all gotten paid to do something weird at least once in our lifetimes but it can’t be as weird as getting paid to teach individuals to swim like a mermaid! Who even knew that was a career! Marielle Henault is a professional mermaid at a mermaid school called the Aqua Mermaid Academy in Montreal. She says, "I'm a mermaid. I teach people how to swim like a mermaid. People are calling me from all over and it's like a tourist attraction now. Welcome to the Aqua Mermaid Class. Today three objectives. Fun, fitness and learning something new. I have an odd job but it's the best job for me. Do what you like, just dream big and do it.” I want to go to that college! But if you want to make some extra cash for literally doing a normal bodily function, just know you can always sell your poop to OpenBiome! OpenBiome is a non-profit organization that sends feces all around the world to patients in need of healthy stool. People around the world are suffering from an infection called, C. defficle and the only thing to cure the infection is to have healthy feces injected into their gut. Finding poop donors is harder than one would think but if you are up to donating your feces for five days a week you will profit at 13,000 dollars a year! If you don’t want to donate your poop but still need some extra cash and have a little extra love around your waste then you might want to consider going into the squashing business! A woman in New York earns over 1,500 dollars a month to eat on camera and squashing men with her body!  There are a lot of options to get paid for random and weird things!
 
Slacker says that he and Steve would not qualify to donate their “poo” because they don’t ever eat anything healthy! He says that if he wasn’t afraid of water he would totally want to learn how to swim like a mermaid! Slacker was a wiz on the guitar and got paid 20 dollars to sit in a guy’s closet with his guitar plugged into his amp and play a song while the guy was pretending to play guitar to impress his friends!
 
Steve says that selling your poop looks good on your resume! He says that he got paid by a guy to throw a ball as fast as he could at the local carnival so he could get his girlfriend a stuffed animal. He couldn’t win the game so he paid Steve a couple of dollars and bought him a corndog! Thank God Steve was a great pitcher!
 
What is the weirdest thing you have ever been paid to do?

GMD: Rental Property

Yi!

Donna and her husband own a two bedroom rental home that they rent out to college students and they make a good profit off of the property. Donna’s brother, who has been described as the black sheep of the family because he is always in trouble just got kicked out of his location and now needs a place to live. He has asked to stay in Donna and Eric’s rental home and of course being family, Donna has said yes, but Eric is refusing to let him stay. Eric thinks that they will be losing money on the property and it is a big risk due to Donna’s brother’s track record. He thinks that if this were a different person who just got kicked out of their last home, there is no way that Donna would let that individual move into the house. Eric thinks Donna’s brother is a really nice guy but he does not have his life together. She even admits that her brother is not the most reliable but he is still family and can stay for a few months while getting his life sorted out. Donna and Eric cannot reach a compromise on the situation.
 
Slacker says that he has brothers too and he wouldn’t want them out on the street, however he can also understand where Eric is coming from. He says that he sides more with Eric.
 
Steve says that once he moves in Donna’s brother will have squatter rights. He says that he sides with Eric and Donna.
 
Whose side are you on?

Is This What Women Want?

Yi!
 
Glam SAHM's are becoming popular on the Upper East Side of New York. "Glam SAHM" stands for glamorous stay-at-home-mom. This trend includes "wife bonuses" where the wife is rewarded with money if they are doing well. A wife bonus would be given if the wife was doing a good job managing the home budget, if the kids got into a ‘good’ school, etc.
 
Slacker says his parents are very old school. They would have dinner parties when he was younger and he says there was definitely gender roles during the party. The women would cook and do the dishes and the men would eat and then relax after the meal.
 
Steve thinks its ok as long as the women actually want to take part in it.
 
Is this something you would want?

Spider Stories

Yi!
 
They are one of the most feared things on the planet...no, we're not talking about lions, tigers, or bears. We're talking about spiders!
 
An area in Australia recently experienced perhaps the worst nightmare for those who suffer from arachnophobia. Millions of baby spiders were seemingly raining down from the sky in Southern Tablelands. Some locals wondered earlier this month if the area about a three-hour drive from Sydney had been "invaded" by spiders as webs fell from the sky and covered entire houses and fields. Martyn Robinson, a naturalist from the Australian Museum, offered an explanation for why locals might have thought spiders were raining from the sky. Spiders, especially babies, often use a technique called ballooning, where they climb to the top of vegetation and release a stream of silk that allows them to be carried in the air. Mass migrations of baby spiders lead to the "angel hair" phenomenon, which can cover entire areas in spider webs.
 
YouTube user Danny Ford wrote that he spotted the massive wolf spider Australia. He and his companions turned on the camera thinking they would just be killing one big spider. What they got instead were many, many spiders. "We got a bit of a surprise when I squashed it with a broom as hundreds of baby spiders came crawling out of the mother," Ford wrote. Indeed, when the broom comes down on the arachnid, countless smaller versions go rushing from the spot where it was squished. A male voice remains relatively calm during the ordeal. "Jesus, look at all the babies!" he can be heard saying. The mama spider is smashed a few more times, just for good measure.
 
Slacker does not want to hear about any spider stories… He really REALLY hates them, especially if there are a lot of them in one place.
 
Steve likes to freak Slacker out and talk about nasty/creepy spider stories.
 
If you've had an especially creepy encounter with an arachnid, we want to hear about it!

OPP: Pitching out the Porn

Yi!
 
When you get into a relationship, your significant other sometimes tells you it's time to get rid of something you own. Today's OPP is being asked to get rid of something and he doesn't understand why. Here is Marty’s problem:
 
Marty is just moving in with his girlfriend. They have been having a great time so far until his girlfriend found his porn stash. His girlfriend wants him to get rid of all of it; she thinks she should be enough for him. He says he is doing her a favor because she probably doesn’t want to have relations as much as he would want to if he didn’t watch porn. Marty also thinks it’s a normal thing for all guys to do and he doesn’t understand why his girlfriend is so upset about him watching porn.
 
Slacker thinks the more porn he watches; the more he would probably want to have relations.
 
Steve thinks if his girlfriend is uncomfortable with something, then he needs to make up some kind of compromise.  Steve says that Marty might have to go ‘underground’ with his habits.
 
Do you think Marty should have to throw out his porn or should he be able to keep it?

5 Calls Says It All

Yi!
 
The state of Oklahoma has passed a new bill that will allow teachers to carry guns in school. Teachers will need to undergo training and must be licensed. Republican Rep. Jeff Coody tells KFOR: ''The law would particularly benefit small communities that are without police forces. If that worse case situation occurs, there is the potential for an armed response on the part of the school to stop a perpetrator with deadly intent.'' Reaction to the bill is split.
 
Slacker doesn’t think it’s a great idea. However, he understands Steve’s point about if someone came into the school; he would want a “good guy” to also have a gun to stop the shooter.
 
Steve can see how it might be good if someone came into the school with a gun, the teachers would be able to protect the students.
 
How do you feel about Teacher’s being allowed to bring guns into schools?

DMV Drama

Yi!
 
It's one of the worst places to go, but we're all forced to do it every few years. We're talking about the DMV!
 
Eva Brown will celebrate her 60th birthday in August. It's a birthday she says she'll never forget because, according to the DMV, she's been dead for nearly two years. Brown and her husband Ray were using the DMV's online system to change the address on her driver's license. The system could not locate her records so the couple called customer service. "I was told I've been dead sine June 20th of 2013," Brown explained. According to the Brown's, the customer service agent told them the mistake was probably due to a keystroke error. Eva said trying to prove to the DMV that she was alive over the phone was not enough. She said she had to jump through another set of hoops before she got her driver's license.
"I need to bring my actual license that I have, my marriage license. I need my social security card. I need to also give them two forms of identification, and mail."
 
A Florida woman says she is planning to take legal action against the Department of Motor Vehicles after the agency incorrectly labeled her as a sexual predator. Tammy Lemasters recently moved to Orlando and went to the DMV to change her license. However, she says she didn’t double-check the bottom corner of her new card. Instead of being listed as an organ donor, the agency accidentally listed her as a ‘sexual predator.’ Lemasters, a mother of two, said she has no criminal history and only noticed the mistake after going to court over a traffic ticket.
 
Slacker said he just had to renew his license and he didn’t bring any of his paper work…He became the drama because he had to run out to the car and when he got back, he  thought he could just jump in front of everyone else.
 
Steve says that even he is faster typing than the people who work at the DMV.  He also said the DMV that he goes to has church pews to sit and wait in instead of normal chairs.
 
If you had a crazy experience, saw someone lose it, or saw someone cheat, we want to hear all about it!

Nurse Confessions

Yi!
 
The author of a book about health care called “The Nurses: A Year of Secrets, Drama, and Miracles…” has interviewed nurses for several years, and has several tips to share with potential patients. Many of the 3.5 million nurses in the U.S. call their profession a “secret club” of compassion and desensitization.
 
Here are a few tips they’ve shared:
-Don’t get sick in July. Every year in teaching hospitals in July, medical students become interns, interns become residents and residents move up into direct patient care. This causes what health care workers call “The July Effect” in the U.S and “August Killing Season” in the UK.
-Sometimes we’re told to treat certain patients better. Many hospitals treat VIPs better than other patients, saving deluxe private rooms for the celebs, politicians and officials.
-Some doctors and nurses are placing bets about you. Several nurses confessed that hospital staffers have wagered on patients, including the “Guess the Blood Alcohol” game, where actual money changes hands. Others try to guess injuries of ER patients.
 
A nurse has been disqualified for nine months after taking a cannabis-laced chocolate bar into a cancer unit at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Murphy, who previously had an “unblemished career”, was found asleep in a children’s play area on a cancer ward at Alder Hey during the night shift. Later that night she was discovered by a colleague lying down on a couch when she was meant to be on duty. She allowed a student nurse to work unsupervised while she slept. She also had a “chocolate bar containing cannabis” hidden in her handbag, which was handed to a co-worker who reported her.
 
Nurse Brenda Rodriguez is accused of using patients’ private information from North Cypress Medical Center to open credit cards in patients’ names.  She is charged with fraudulent use of identifying information, a first-degree felony.  She was out of jail on a $20,000 bond Wednesday night. Investigators said a patient realized there was a problem when someone opened an account in their name. When the Harris County Sheriff’s Office worked with the U.S. postal inspector, they said they found more accounts.
Investigators said they found 10 victims ranging in age from 35 to 65 years old. They believe there could be more.
 
Slacker knows someone who was a nurse that said they had to do a reverse catheter on a patient who put batteries in their… (you can finish that sentence).
 
Steve had to have a catheter after his emergency appendectomy. He said the nurses were fighting over who got to work on him!
 
If you are a nurse, we want to hear from you! Do you have any Nurse Confessions?

Big Dollar Damage

Yi!
 
A man in Massachusetts destroyed a Porsche and a car wash at the same time! Talk about an expensive mistake!
 
Police were called to the scene of a minor car crash at the Olde Cape Car Wash in Massachusetts after a Porsche crashed into it.  Things took a quick turn for the worse, with the business’s roof collapsing and destroying the sports car that hit one of its support beams. The driver, 73-year-old Job Taylor, was not in the vehicle at the time of the collapse. He was treated for minor injuries at the scene, according to police. The car, a 2014 Porsche 911 convertible, retails for upwards of $90,000.
 
A painting at a Durango, CO art gallery was damaged by some spilled wine. Surveillance cameras at the Sorrel Sky Gallery caught three girls spilling the wine then taking off. Officials aren’t sure if it was an accident but it caused between $5,000 and $10,000 in damage. Staff at the gallery had talked to the girls earlier and they said they were students from the local college. The owner of the gallery tells the paper she’s not sure yet if she’s going to press charges.
 
The landlord of a Buffalo, NY home told police that someone intentionally left the water running in the home and clogged the drains, causing thousands of dollars in damage. Water caused damage to the floors of the home, and also damaged a basement water heater. The suspects also took two refrigerators, each valued at more than $500. The landlord told police that former tenants who were recently evicted still had keys to the home. The total damages are estimated to be about $10,000.
 
Slacker snapped the nose gear off of a 747 airplane while he was working for an airline company. Another thing Slacker wrecked while working for the airline company was circuit boards that he was transporting. He had them in the back of his pickup truck and decided to get a car wash because he had some extra time. The circuit boards were completely soaked and ruined.
 
Steve doesn’t think he has ever damaged anything expensive, besides some possible psychological damage he may have caused from previous relationships.
 
We want to hear about your most expensive mishap!

OPP: When to Ask for Permission

Yi!
 
Today's OPP is in her first serious relationship and she has an important question to ask...does she have to get permission to do certain things now? Here is Mandy’s problem:
 
Yi guys! I need some help. My boyfriend and I are getting serious and moved into together and I really don't want to mess things up, so when should I ask his permission to do things? Like, we've started combining our money so when do I have to ask if I can buy something? I know I don't have to ask to buy a tank of gas, but if I want a new dress do I have to ask if it's okay with him? What about if I want to change my hair? What if I want to change jobs? Basically I want to know what kind of decisions I have to talk to him about first so he doesn't get upset. Should I still ask about these types of things before we get married or should I just wait until we get married? Thanks for the help guys!
-Mandy
 
Slacker says that when a couple combines their money together, it should be their money together. One person shouldn’t have to ask permission if they want to buy something. He thinks Mandy is setting herself up for a bad situation. If she has to ask permission to do things so that her boyfriend doesn’t get upset, that’s not a good place to be.
 
Steve says that he has never had to mingle funds with a significant other.
 
Do you have any advice for Mandy?

Something from a Celebrity

Yi!
 
For Slacker, it's a guitar from a rock star. For Steve, it's a t-shirt. We want to know what yours is. We are talking about: Something from a Celebrity.
 
Popular hip-hop model Jenna Shea has received something from a celebrity that she really wished hadn’t.  She said she got a bladder infection from Tyga.
 
One DJ saved some French toast that was left behind by Justin Timberlake after a breakfast interview by a New York-area radio station! The DJ put the French toast on eBay and someone bought it for $1,025! Kathy Summers, the buyer of the bread, said “I’ll probably freeze-dry it, then seal it… then put it on my dresser.”
 
Slacker said he got to meet with and jam with Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi! At the end of the jam session, Richie ended up giving the guitar he was playing to Slacker!
 
Steve kind of stole a t-shirt from Ed Sheeran! He said that while Ed was playing a show, he decided to sneak into his dressing room and saw his shirt lying on the ground… so he took it!

Revenge

Yi!
 
Revenge is sweet until you get caught! A Saudi Arabia man came home from his honeymoon to find that he was being charged with an 80,000 dollars traffic fine. The man’s ex-wife had her sibling drive through as many red lights as he could while the man was gone. Traffic cameras on the lights captured the woman’s brother driving through video and pictures. The owner of the car was not found liable because he was not driving the car. The ex-wife took it to another level, she went to the home of the second wife and destroyed all of her new furniture. A woman got a different type of revenge on her cheating boyfriend. She went into her boyfriend’s phone and changed her name to his mother’s name so every time he sent a naughty picture it would actually go to his mom. Yikes! A South Carolina student was recently caught on video for spitting and pouring Windex in her roommate’s food. The woman was fighting with her two roommates and they refused to move out. The victims set up cameras to catch the woman in the act. They knew she would do something crazy to get revenge and that is why they set up the cameras. The evil roommate admitted to the crime and was charged with unlawful and malicious tampering with food.
 
Slacker says that he never gets revenge but Steve and Lil’ D disagree. He says that he has been caught on the camera lights and they have high picture quality. He wants to glitter bomb Steve to get revenge on him. He wants Steve to taste some of his spit so they can understand what saliva tastes like.
 
Steve says that he gets revenge passive aggressively.
 
Lil’ D says that Steve gets angry and Slacker gets revenge.
 
Have you ever gotten revenge? What did you do?

OPP: Husband Needs to be a Better Dad

Yi!
 
Laurie is married with children. She and her husband have been married for 10 years. She has a comfortable living because her husband works hard to provide for the family, however, she thinks he is a terrible father because he never spends anytime with their kids. She says he is always tired and all he wants to do is sleep and wants “me” time. He never goes to their kids activities like their son’s baseball games or daughter’s recitals.  She has communicated with her husband about this but he does not care to change. Financially they are comfortable, and she says that he could not work as much. She wants him around more than the extra money. Laurie is appreciative of the comfortable living he provides as a husband but she really wants him to step it up in the dad department but doesn’t know how to communicate to him that he is a bad dad.
 
Slacker says he is the opposite of a dead beat dad because he is a great provider. He can somewhat understand where Laurie’s husband is coming from but he still always goes to his daughter’s recitals. He understands being tired when coming home from work but your kids don’t care, they just want your time.
 
Steve says you have to choose one, dead beat dad or a provider who doesn’t have time for his children. He says that their children will want the money their dad provides and his time. They want both, not just one or the other. Steve says Laurie’s husband doesn’t need to be a better parent, he needs to start being a parent.
 
How can Laurie confront her husband about being a bad father?

Amusement Park Adventures

Yi!
 
Amusement parks are awesome, especially when it’s a nice day out and you’re enjoying some beverages! However, at the Window of the World amusement park there is no such thing as fun when you enter The Samadhi Game. Two Chinese philanthropists have created a “ride” more like an experience like no other. They created a death simulator that allows participants to experience what it would feel like to be cremated. Individuals are placed in a coffin and then transported into an incinerator; then blasted with hot air and light to create an “authentic experience of burning.” Don’t worry though, after the burning is complete the player would then crawl out of a tight space that is supposed to represent a womb, which then communicates to the player that they have been reborn. Too much? Well then you can head to Disneyland and give Pluto a huge hug but be careful he might injure your back and neck. Laurie Ramirez’s 8-year-old son went to hug Pluto but he “tossed him around like a rag doll.” Her son had to be rushed to the hospital for treatment on his neck and back injuries that were caused by the massive hug!
 
Slacker thinks amusement parks are amazing. He has an issue with riding carnival park rides because you can pick up the ride and can’t be that safe. He got stuck in a “Tower of Doom” type ride. He was freaking out.
 
Steve rarely adventures into an amusement park but when he does, it’s definitely not a carnival. He says that Pluto grabbed the kid too harshly because he cannot talk like Goofy can and he was just jealous.
 
What amusement park adventure have you had?

Worst Summer Jobs

Yi!
 
Summer jobs can be the worst and we have all had at least one! Chris Hemsworth before he became an actor worked at a pharmacy that rented out breast pumps to women. His job was to scrub the used pumps down with a toothbrush. We found a list of the top 10 worst summer jobs! Here it is.
10 Worst Summer Jobs Ever
  1. Music Festival Security
  2. Fast Food Employee
  3. Theme Park Mascot
  4. Any Corporate Gig
  5. Movie Theater Clerk
  6. School janitor
  7. Detasseling Corn
  8. Working for the family business
  9. Working a Pizza Oven
  10. Cutting Cemetery Grass
Slacker is confused as to why women reuse breast pumps. He doesn’t know what is worse for Chris Hemsworth, dating Miley Cyrus or cleaning used breast pumps. Slacker’s worst job was a landscaper at a motel and got paid under the table.
Steve was a rock picker for one of his summer jobs. He grew up in the Dakotas and before harvest season you have to pick the rocks out of the field so the tractors don’t break when they are working in the fields. He got paid per bucket or minimum wage depending on how hard you wanted to work.
Lil’ D worked in a greenhouse for about 11 minutes. He said it was too humid, hot, and had to wear full clothing. He said it smelled so bad and was dirty.
What is the worst summer job you have had?

Parenting Confessions

Yi!
 
Parents love can run so deep that it actually makes them crazy! A New Jersey couple is receiving charges for stalking and harassment all because their kid was benched on his basketball team. David and Nanci Kushner sent their son’s basketball coach harassing letters and emails because he put their kid on the bench. The coach says, “It has been a scary experience for my family and me.” The couple is pleading not guilty.  A dad in Florida was arrested after giving his daughter and a least eight other teenagers LSD, pot, and alcohol. The 39-year-old dad was busted after one of the teens mom called the cops. He has been arrested previously for mooning a 15-year-old child. A man in Virginia loves his daughter so much that he is starting a foundation to help raise money for his daughter to become a “real princess.” The money will go to purchasing unclaimed land in the desert sands of northeast Africa. He will then make that are a new country if he has the funds to do it. The man says, "So be it proclaimed on June 16, 2014, Emily's 7th birthday, that Bir Tawil shall be forever known as the Kingdom of North Sudan. The Kingdom is established as a sovereign monarchy with myself as the head of state; with Emily becoming an actual Princess." Not many are contributing to his campaign. Bargaining tools are great for kids to get them to do things, but cocaine and pot shouldn’t be in the deal. A Florida couple gave their children cocaine and pit if they did their chores. A Georgia woman had her 10-year-old son arrested because he had been misbehaving in school by being disrespectful to his teacher. After the police handcuffed the boy and put him in the back of the car the mother and police had a serious talk with him about being respectful to everyone. The boy promised he would improve his behavior.  Many of us can’t afford a wardrobe worth $161,000, but a two year old in China can. A mother in China spent that amount on her daughter’s wardrobe; including designers, Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Burberry. The mother said, "We have no financial issues, so I just want my daughter to have a better life.''
 
Slacker says that nothing feels better than confessing the things you have done wrong as a parent. He wants to know what is going on in Florida because half of the stories are coming out of Florida. His parenting confession is sometimes he doesn’t want to wait until his kids go to bed before he starts his R rated movies so his children are subjected to blood, gore, and bad language.
 
Steve says that parents suck at their job and that he is happy he is not a parent.
 
Lil’ D says that his daughter is still in her bed time reading stage. All of the books she likes to read at night are all really long and he thinks it’s horrible and a waste of time. Lil’ D hid all of the long books she likes to read at night out of convince for him.
 
What are your parenting confessions?

OPP: Not Gonna Graduate

Yi!
 
Today’s OPP is from Hannah!
 

Yi Slacker and Steve! I am supposed to be graduating this month and my parents are all set to throw me a big graduation party. They've already invited friends and family. My problem is that I dropped out 3 semesters ago. I never told my parents because they were so proud that I was going to school. We're not a rich family so they haven't been paying my tuition or anything, but they have been helping with some expenses. I'm afraid to disappoint them and tell them that I dropped out. It is going to break their heart. Should I just go along with it and let them throw the party for me? Do I have to tell them I'm really not graduating? What should I do?-Hannah
 
Slacker says Hannah needs to make a plan for her future! He says that she is way too far deep in this and has missed out on a lot of education. He says she should be honest and not ride the lie! Slacker is more concerned with her future without an education rather than her graduation party.
 
Steve is confused on how she has gone three semesters without her parents finding out. He thinks that Hannah needs to ride the lie. Steve thinks that there are ways to get out of her situation even though she is really in deep with this lie.
 
Lil’ D says that he graduated from school, but never walked at his graduation and his parents have never seen his diploma. He says to ride the lie! He says, “What they don’t know won’t hurt them.”
 
What should Hannah do?

GMD: Sick Mom Sisters

Yi!
 
Veronica and Shay are sisters. Veronica is the older of the two. Their mom is extremely sick and they take care of her by taking her to doctors’ appointments several times a week.  Their mom is unsure their mom will ever be healthy again with the disease she has. There is only a 20 percent survival rate. Veronica just got offered a job that is out of state but is thinking about declining the invitation because she does not want to leave her sister taking care of her mom all by herself. It’s not just any other job. It’s Veronica’s dream job and if she doesn’t take it now she will never receive the opportunity again. She thinks that Shay would be extremely stressed out juggling her new marriage and their mother’s sickness. Their dad is out of the picture so he cannot care for their mom. Shay wants Veronica to take the job because it is a great opportunity and her dream job. She thinks that Veronica deserves to take the job and that she will find a way to take care of their mom, like hiring someone to help out. Shay says, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” Veronica is worried that something drastic will happen to her mom and she won’t be there.
 
Slacker says that that he loves having a Great Mate Debate that involves both parties being overly unselfish and generous with one another. He says that he has no idea what he would do if he were to be put in this situation.
 
Steve thinks that both sisters are great because they considering each other in such a high value. He says that he has been in this similar situation with his mom. When he was starting his radio career his mom was battling cancer. He left his mom, out of her request, and left the responsibility with his sister. He still feels guilty about not being as active with his mother’s illness as he would have if he didn’t take his dream job.

Secret Competitions

Yi!
 
We all have secret competitions with random strangers, and especially with siblings. Slacker’s secret competition is between other individuals in the grocery store. He likes to use the self-checkout lane and while he is bagging his groceries he likes to race others. He wants to be the master grocer! Lil’ D has a friend who has a child the same age as his daughter. He has a competition to see which child can reach milestones faster. Kyle Clark, an anchor on 9News, likes to race people on the highway who are just merging on.
 
Slacker says that he, Steve, and Lil’ D all go out to lunch together but drive separate. Their secret competition is “Who gets back to the radio station first!” He says that he can guarantee that he can beat anyone in a grocery self-checkout lane.
 
Steve says that all parents have competitions with other people’s children! He says that his competition is with his neighbors and their lawns. He says that he got so far over the top trying to make his lawn look better than everyone else. He even went as far as to give Slacker some top grade fertilizer.
 
Lil’ D’s daughter has to hit milestones before his friend’s daughter because he likes to brag and know that his daughter is smarter.
 
What secret competitions do you have?

Idiot

Yi!
 
We all have idiotic moments. Some are worse than others. Snoop Dogg needs to either brush up on his history or cut down his intake of marijuana. He thought that the T.V. series Game of Thrones was based off of actual historical events, dragons and all! Snoop Dogg released a statement saying, “I watch it for historic reasons, to try to understand what this world was based on before I got here. I like to know how we got from there, to here, and the similarities between then and now.” Idiot!
 
Slacker says that he is an idiot just by speaking on a daily basis. He says Game of Thrones is not a documentary! He says that he was the last to know putting your windshield wipers in a storm was not a prank! He thought people were pranking and inconveniencing him when they put his wipers up when it started to snow.
 
Steve proves he’s not an idiot by knowing Snoop Dogg’s real name! He can’t think of any reasons of why he is an idiot.
 
Lil’ D says that he is an idiot because he used to have baseball cards that had trivia on them and to find the answers you had to show the card in a mirror and read the answer. He was in his room for months trying to figure out what each answer was and his little brother had to notify them.  
 
What makes you an idiot?

OPP: Dating for Perks

Yi!
 
Today’s OPP is from Candy!
 
Yi! I have been dating Steve and am torn over whether or not to continue seeing him. Steve is very average looking, but is extremely successful and wealthy. I am attracted to him because he's always buying me gifts, paying for things and taking me to nice restaurants. Are these reasons to date someone? There is very little physical chemistry on my end. Is it wrong if I continue to date Steve because I like the material things he gives me? I have never been in this situation before! HELP!-Candy
 
Slacker says this describe Steve in a nutshell. He doesn’t like the term gold digging because he thinks Candy is not digging; she is just taking what is being given to her. He thinks that she just has to get used to the “sugar daddy” situation. He thinks that she should feel bad if she starts to manipulate him and “chumming the water.”
 
Steve says this has nothing to do with me! He says that if this was him he wouldn’t mind because both are getting what they need. He gets to shower a girl with gifts and he gets a nice arm candy. Steve says however, that relationship does not last long. He thinks that it is the guys fault because he is giving her too much. He thinks that Candy is the victim! He says that she shouldn’t feel bad.
 
Is this a wrong reason to date someone?

Scammed

Yi!
 
Scammers suck! Online shopping is extremely dangerous because of scammers. One minute you’re trying to buy a golf club and the next you’re wondering why you have your identity stolen! An Indonesian woman was buying her son an iPhone online. She made two payments on the phone. The first payment was 83 dollars and the second payment was 569 dollars, coming to a whopping total of 652 dollars. She received an Apple box to what seemed like an iPhone would be shipped in, but when she opened the box it was full of biscuits!

Slacker got scammed by a pyramid business. He says that he bought in a business that had to convince other people to give him money. It was all about advertising. Slacker got scammed out of 100 dollars.
 
Steve says that he has been scammed before. He gave 400 dollars to his “meth head mailman” to join in his “business.” He says it was a pyramid business and he told Steve that if he paid more he would get more ahead in the company. Not too long after the mailman ditched town and everyone found out that they were being scammed.
 
Have you ever been scammed?

Bizarre Births

Yi!
 
We are talking about Bizarre Births.
 
A woman recently gave birth on an Air Canada Flight from Calgary to Tokyo.  The flight attendants asked for help from the passengers and luckily there was a doctor on board who helped deliver the baby. “I couldn't imagine, this just happened completely unexpectedly,” the anonymous father told Japanese reporters. “It turned out we have a little baby, beautiful girl. Her name is Chloe.” After landing, the mother and newborn were immediately taken to hospital. Air Canada later tweeted that they are both doing well.
 
A judge in New Jersey ruled that twins have different dads. The woman was seeking child support from one man who was challenging that he was the father. A DNA test showed that he was almost certainly the father of one twin, but not the other. The woman admitted to having sex with another man who is likely the father of the other twin. It’s very rare for twins to have different dads:   It can happen when the woman has sex with two men in the same menstrual cycle and two of her eggs are fertilized separately by each man.
 
A terrified mother watched cracks appear in the walls of a Kathmandu maternity unit and felt the ground shake beneath her feet as a massive earthquake struck Nepal while she was in labor. Plaster began falling from the walls and patients ran for their lives as Asha Shrestha, 29, prepared to give birth in an operating theatre in Prashuti Griha Hospital. Her distressed relatives carried her from the room and sheltered in a tent after the powerful 7.3-magnitude earthquake hit, killing dozens of people and sending thousands more rushing out in to the streets of the capital Kathmandu. An hour later, Ms. Shrestha gave birth to her daughter in an emergency room and lay down side-by-side with other new mothers and their babies in a corridor.

Thought It Was Gone Forever

Yi!
 
When some things disappear, you never expect to see them again.
 
A pillow sham an Army soldier sent to his mother got lost in the mail for 73-years.  It finally came home, just in time for Mother's Day. The sham with the word "Mother" was sent in 1942 by a soldier from his Army base in California to his mother in Millville, Massachusetts. It never made it to him mom and was just found last month by a resident of Millville on eBay. The man looked for living relatives of the soldier but couldn’t find any, so the town wants to put the sham on display in the town's senior center just yards from the house where the soldier’s family once lived.
 
Kelly Booker was reunited with his 9-year-old dog yesterday. Lilly disappeared on July 4, 2011. He thinks she may have run off after hearing fireworks. Lily was rescued in Illinois and identified by a microchip after being taken to a shelter. Booker lives in Denver and has no idea how Lily wound up in Elgin, Illinois. Lily immediately recognized Booker.
 
Slacker lost a Steinberger guitar a long time ago. He recently got a call from someone who thought they found it. He drove a pretty long ways to go and pick it up and when he finally got there, it wasn’t his guitar.
 
Tell us what you found after you thought it was gone forever!

OPP: Family Surveillance

Yi!
 
There is a difference between protecting your family and invading their privacy. Today's OPP says her husband is taking things too far...but he says their well-being is his only concern. Here is Andrea’s problem:
 
Yi Slacker and Steve,
My husband has installed cameras all around our house. He can log into them from his computer at work or on his phone and watch what is going on in the house. It started with 1 camera at the front door and now he has them in the living room, the kitchen and the front hallway. I feel like I am always being watched and it's a little creepy but he says he never logs in just to see what I'm doing. His main concern is our daughter. She's 16 and we have caught her with her boyfriend alone in our house before. He wants to make sure that doesn't happen again. He's even talked about putting one in her room. While I don't want to be a grandma yet, I still think a 16 year old needs a little privacy. How do I convince him that he's taking it too far and we deserve some trust?
-Andrea
 
Slacker says he has cameras in his house. He has cameras at both doors and all around the house. He also says that when his daughter gets old enough, he may put video cameras by her door or window so that he can see who comes in and out; just in case she is trying to sneak out or have people sneak in.
 
Steve thinks it’s a little weird that Slacker has cameras in his house, but he also thinks it’s kind of cool that Slacker can check out what is going on in his house whenever he wants.
 
What do you think Andrea should do?

Putting Down the Dog

Yi!
 
Slacker has a decision to make for his family...the question is should he tell them before he makes the decision or not?
 
Slacker has had his dog mojo since 2001. Mojo is a black lab and has been a really great dog however, he is getting pretty old. He has been going to the bathroom in the house and just doesn’t have the energy to do anything anymore. Slacker has been thinking it might be time to put him down. He has never had to do it before so he’s not really sure how to handle this situation. Slacker is wondering when to make the call to actually put Mojo down. He also was thinking about just doing it without telling his wife or kids. Slacker thinks since it is his dog, he should just do it and tell the family after to save them from the dramatic goodbye. However, he is afraid if he does it without telling them, they will hold it against him for the rest of their lives.
 
Lil’ D said that parents put their family dog down without telling him while he was at college. He still is upset that they put the dog down without telling him and that he didn’t get to say goodbye.
 
Steve says he probably wouldn’t tell the family because it’s Slackers dog and it would be really sad if the whole family was there when it happened.  
 
What would you do if you were in Slackers position?

Distracted Drivers

Yi!
 
Some people are not the best drivers, but just wait until you hear what these people were doing while driving! We are talking about Distracted Drivers!
 
A 24-year-old New Zealand man was given a $150 ticket after he was caught driving in a carpool lane with a mannequin. The mannequin had a bandaged head and sunglasses. Sergeant Brett Henshaw says: "The driver was rather sheepish, apologized and said it was the first time he'd done it. He was given an infringement notice for unauthorized use of a special vehicle lane. Drivers who use lanes like this without having a bona-fide reason should be aware that we're regularly conducting patrols of them.''
 
An unidentified London man was photographed yesterday playing a bass guitar while stuck in traffic.
School bus assistant Nichola Carr tells the Daily Mirror: "I was very shocked and stunned when I looked down and saw a man playing the guitar while behind the wheel. The traffic was really bad along the A27 and the driver was probably traveling at about 10mph. He was definitely playing the guitar and my first thought was: 'Oh my god, is he really doing that?' The children found it funny and would shout: 'Here comes the guitar man,' as he kept driving past. It was a bit concerning and I'm sure he shouldn't have been playing the guitar behind the wheel."
 
A Canadian woman was videotaped turning in a hair-raising bit of bad driving, in which she piloted her car hands-free—while using a curling iron! The woman, whose name was not released, was spotted on a highway on an island off British Columbia, using her knees to steady the steering wheel as she went along. The motorist whose wife shot the video from the passenger seat of their car says he estimates she was going about 55 miles per hour while wrapping up her beauty routine. A police spokesman says, if caught, she would be charged for driving without due care and attention –because a curling iron is not considered to be an electronic device.
 
Slacker doesn’t think that watching a movie and driving is that bad! He says he is a great driver and hasn’t been in an accident in a long time! However, he hates people who drive with their pets in their lap!
 
Steve says Slacker is a distracted driver!
 
Do you have any distracted driver stories?

Fakers

Yi!
 
There are a lot of stories in the news of people pretending to be something they're not.
 
One woman in New York posed as a dentist! Patients went to a Bronx dentist for root canals, injections and to have their teeth pulled -- but there was one major problem. She isn’t a dentist! The woman was actually the office manager for a dental practice and would slip on a lab coat when the dentist was away and perform dental work on unsuspecting patients. She diagnosed patients, took X-rays, injected patients with anesthetics, and performed root canals. The woman also allegedly scheduled her own appointments and went so far as to offer a discount for cash customers. The dentist became suspicious when patients returned with complaints and complications for work he had never performed. Some patients became sick, and one even got a terrible oral infection, prosecutors said.
 
A fake waitress recently stole a man's credit card and went on a shopping spree. The man was eating at a Santa Fe, New Mexico diner when the fake waitress took his ticket to him. He handed her his credit card before she walked out and over to a Target. The woman purchased $200 worth of items. She fled in a 7-Series BMW. The victim canceled his card.
 
Three people have been charged in California with impersonating law enforcement officers after claiming to operate a police department with jurisdiction in 33 states. They said they belonged to a group called the Masonic Fraternal Police Department, which they claimed dated back to the Knights Templar. One of the trios is a junior aide to California's attorney general. Uniforms, weapons and vehicles were found in premises linked to the group.
 
Slacker said that he has faked his way into a lot of things! He says he has been really close to doing the fake valet thing!
 
Steve wishes he could be a fake cop to pull over drivers that anger/irritate him.

OPP: Mother's Day Letdown

Yi!
 
Today’s OPP is pretty upset because of what happened over her Mother’s Day weekend.  Michelle has two teenage sons and a husband who did absolutely nothing for her on Mother’s Day. Michelle feels like her husband has gone downhill. She says that he hasn’t done anything for her in the past few years including Mother’s Day, Birthdays, and all other holidays. She thinks this past weekend may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back and is thinking about divorce.  She thinks he is the most selfish person in the world and he doesn’t care about her anymore. Her husband is also passing on these bad traits to their two children. Michelle is wondering if she is just over reacting about the whole situation or if she should do something about her relationship with her husband.
 
Slacker read an article that the weekend immediately following Mother’s Day is the biggest sign-up for dating websites that cater to marital affairs. He thinks that there are probably other women who are feeling the same way as Michelle.
 
Steve says he was probably 14 or 15 when he started buying presents for his parents on his own.
 
What do you think Michelle should do?

Over-Protective Dad

Yi!
 
Any dad with a daughter will tell you that they have one job in life...protect their little girl! Most daughters will tell you that their dads have acted a little crazy at least once!
 
The Bellingham, Washington police recently arrested Vincent Jones for shocking his 25-year-old daughter's boyfriend with a cattle prod. He burst into a home on March 24th and prodded Norman Gerstner to discourage him from dating his daughter. Cops couldn't locate Jones until earlier this week when Gerstner saw him in a restaurant. Jones was charged with assault, robbery, burglary and harassment.
 
A father in Australia has come up with a creative way to keep the boys away from his young daughter.
The two-time Jiu-Jitsu champion has printed a t-shirt showing off his muscular build, and he’s making her wear it. The shirt reads, 'Stay Clear Boys. This is my dad!' While his daughter doesn't look too happy about the new clothing, her father is pictured smiling beside her.
 
Slacker says he has a little girl…and he doesn’t want to be the over-protective dad, but fears he might end up being one.  He really likes Steve’s idea for when his daughter starts dating.
 
Steve says that Slacker should give his daughter’s boyfriend a stopwatch that counts down until the time that the boyfriend needs to have his daughter home by.

OPP: He Needs to do More With the Kids

Yi!
 
Heather and her friend are very close, but she is becoming concerned with her friend’s lifestyle choices. Her friend has gone “crazy” but she says she is in her “fun” stage.  She is sleeping around with a lot of men almost four or five a week. She is even going to Craigslist to meet men. Her friend says she doesn’t want to settle down now and just wants to have fun. Heather thinks she could get raped or not even make it to a point in her life to settle down. She says she drinks a lot of alcohol as well. She says she loves all of the attention she is getting which is fueling the fire to her “fun” stage.  Heather wants to discuss her concerns with her friend but she does not know if that is her place or what she can say or do to get her friend to stop living a dangerous lifestyle.
 
Slacker says that her friend is getting a reputation and that is not a good thing to have because it is embarrassing. He says that health wise; sleeping with four or five men a week is bad and should be frowned upon.
 
Steve says it sounds like Heather may be jealous because he friend is getting a lot of attention from the opposite sex. He says, “Who are we to judge?”
 
What should Heather do? Is it her place to discuss this with her friend?
