Luke Burbank, host of the podcast Too Beautiful To Live, joins the show every Monday to tell us about the Awesome/Not Awesome news items of the week. Today, Luke talks about how Jiffy Lube employees lie to their customers by telling them to change the oil every 3,000 miles instead of the car manufacturer guidelines which are higher: 5,000 - 10,000 miles. Also, a man sells his engagement ring after a hard breakup and uses the money to buy a Master Chief armored suit made famous by the video game series, Halo. And, the Sex Pistols' graffiti is being studied by archaeologists who say that it's "as important as the caves of Lascaux in southern France."
