I mentioned how my neighbour’s home was raided by the police, so here’s a photo of dudes in the hazmat suits going into their house.

Hazmat suits

There was nothing about this on the news, so I doubt I’ll ever know the entire story.

I talked about how there are differences between jail and prison. I didn’t know the sentencing length which separated being thrown into jail or prison during the time of recording. However, it seems that jail is mainly for people who are convicted of misdemeanor and are serving a sentence less than a year.

I briefly mentioned how plants can feel pain (well technically they can react to it, whether or not it’s actual pain – in the sense humans feel – is still unclear).

I mentioned the California study which found that people who luxurious cars are assholes. (On the episode, I said this was a 2003 study. I actually meant it was a study from 2013)

Jack briefly mentioned a Middle Eastern country where woman can’t be Uber drivers. After a brief Google search, I believe he was referring to the situation in Saudi Arabia.

The Cincinnati Zoo is planning to re-open the gorilla exhibit with a higher, reinforced barrier.

Zoo spokeswoman Michelle Curley said the outer barrier will now be 42 inches high — a half foot taller than before — with solid wood beams on top and at the bottom, plus knotted rope netting at the bottom (via Daily Advocate).
