The Weekly DownLloyd: I don’t believe…

Mar 14, 2014, 6:44 PM | Updated: 6:44 pm

As the producer of Mac & Gaydos, this is my own unique, weird, wacky and, at times, warped look at the week’s seven biggest stories.

Hear me out, I believe in a lot of stuff, good parents generally raise good kids, the existence of God, hope and change and love.

There’s a few things I don’t believe in though…

The Phoenix Lights

Did something light up in the sky that baffled several star gazers 17 years ago in the Valley? Yes. Was it little green men in a space ship? No. Do aliens, ghosts and various other supernatural things exist? Most likely.

Does the government always get it right? No. Do I think they got the Phoenix Lights right when they said it was flares? Yes.

Peeing in the pool is bad for you

I don’t have much experience in this area and none in the last 20 years. According to researchers though one in five people pee in the pool. Okay, gross. Experts claim it’s dangerous to do so. If that was the case people would be running into problems all over the place, wouldn’t they? Apparently when urine meets chlorine a harmful gas can be kicked up that’s bad for your central nervous system though. This simply seems like a tactic to dissuade people out of urinating in pools.

Drones are being used to smuggle stuff into prison

Apparently some Australian guy was busted this week for trying to sneak drugs into jail via drone. Can I buy that this has ever happened? Sure. Do I think all sorts of people are trying to get their hands on drones to sneak various drugs into prisons left and right? No. People have better things to do, don’t they?

Correction: Electric Vehicles-Urban Living story

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — In a story published October 25, 2022, about electric vehicle chargers, The Associated Press erroneously reported the number of commercial chargers — ones not in private homes — that are publicly accessible in Los Angeles. There are 4,367, not about 3,000. Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material […]
