This week, Gavin brings in the Cincinnati Zoo shooting incident. The conversation dives into discussions about what the value of life is. Meanwhile, Jack brings in another woman-based topic; this time, claiming that women who drive luxurious cars bad drivers.

Afterwards, Jack changes up the Kao Lui Corner for the week. This time catering to the women, as he talks about the seven signs that a guy likes a girl.

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).
