Judge John Hodgman Episode 339: Marco? Justice!

| 0 comments

KLAXON! KLAXON! Ticket's are on sale NOW for Judge John Hodgman at San Francisco Sketchfest! Watch Bay Area justice dispensed on Thursday January 11, 2018 at the Castro Theatre. More info can be found on the right side of this page or at SFsketchfest.com!

If you will be in the Bay Area on January 11 and have a dispute for the show, submit it at MaximumFun.org/JJHo! That is all.

Nate brings the case against his wife, Pam. They have just bought their first house and Pam wants to have a swimming pool installed. Nate says pools are too expensive and time consuming to maintain.

EVIDENCE

Submitted by Nate:

Dangerousness of pools:
Steven Levitt (Freakonomics guy): "Thus, on average, if you both own a gun and have a swimming pool in the backyard, the swimming pool is about 100 times more likely to kill a child than the gun is."
scienceblogs.com/deltoid/2001/07/27/levittpoolsvsguns

Financial impact:
"According to Houselogic.com, the National Association of Realtors' online magazine for homeowners, the average cost to install, equip, and fill a 600-square-foot concrete pool starts at $30,000."
"You’ll spend about $600 during the swimming season on chemicals if you maintain your pool yourself. If you live in a climate where you’ll use the pool year-round, budget $15–25 a week for DIY maintenance."
