MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

Yes, I know there was an election this week.

In the meantime, let's talk about illegally rented AirBnB apartments and a woman with a crazy number of driver's license suspensions.

So the verdict came in shortly after my last true crime podcast and the defendant was found....well, real guilty.

Also, some talk about the environment and why it's worth five cents per one-use bag to help clean up the planet.

Rather than more election news, I turn to the annals of stupid true crime.

I give you the ongoing trial of Glenn Terry, arrested for the attempted kidnapping of his former attorney, Frank Tinari.

Why would be try to kidnap his former attorney?
How did he get caught?
Why do I think he is a stupid would-be criminal?

Patience, my friends, patience!

This week's podcast returns to the theme of minor obsessions.

There is (still) a free loyalty rewards program called viggle.com.

You get points for "checking into" TV shows and pop songs with your phone.

You can then exchange those points for merchandise or gift cards.

I decided to use those points to get my son an iPad several years ago.

And the minor obsession began.

My standing workstation is two cardboard boxes.

I've been using my office chair for 16+ years and it no longer rises, yet I have yet to request a replacement.

The chair before that was broken, but I avoided trashing it by simply not leaning backwards until building services forcibly removed it from my office.

In other words, health in the workplace was not one of my primary concerns until this year.

The CEO of Mylan, makers of the EpiPen, announced that the cost of the life-saving devices would skyrocket to $600. There was an uproar, but that didn't affect the price. In fact, the company announced a generic brand for half the price. Why? Why indeed.
