Teens actually need 9.25 hours of sleep per night, so schools in California are gonna start later. Wish that'd happen in Ohio, but even if the State passed this kind of legislation, rural areas would be exempt. :'( Still, this is a super interesting concept!

SOUND is when you mow your lawn. NOISE is when your neighbor mows his lawn. MUSIC is when your neighbor mows your lawn. I've never heard such a succint way of defining and differentiating these terms. Mind = Blown.

inside a Trump rally. Question: do you have any data on how many Trump supporters don't publicly state they are Trump supporters? Where's the data on the "silent majority" that is often associated with Trump? What segment of the population are they? thanks!

Streaming: Infinity War. Dear Producers, the heavy use of the filler word "like" made this episode very hard to listen to.

Based off the title, I thought this was going to be about Puerto Rico.

I appreciate how understanding she is of the mindset of Duterte's supporters. As tired as I am of hearing their excuses for every horrible thing he does, they are simply frustrated with the years of corruption the country experiences from all levels of the government, from every single president we've ever had, down to the clerks at government offices. Duterte was able to create a tangible change. Gov't offices started working faster. Traffic enforcers mostly stopped preying on drivers for bribes. Unfortunately, that's all his supporters are willing to see.

"horrified" probably more like bad PR and went to distance himself as much as possible, only $$$ matters

This story makes me so angry. Not just at the rapist but the total utter incompetence of American police departments and their absurd bias towards women stemming from a male dominated work culture. Fire those cops, fire them all and parade their abysmal record all over the internet so no one will ever forget what they did and will never hire them again. I want their kids to be reminded of what their father did every time they go up on the internet and be ashamed of being related to him for the rest of their life.
