Monday Morning Nugs: DonkDown and Travis Makar, Late Rent, More Intersection of Law and Online Poker, and Corporate Cosmology

Not much time to talk. I'm on a deadline, so let's not waste any more time and get down to it. The straight dope. Here's a few bits of poker news to masticate on this lovely Monday morning...
Micon and the DonkDown crew interviewed Travis Makar (one of those accused in the UB cheating scandal). According to Micon: "He answers a lot of questions and sheds a lot of light about Russ Hamilton and the AP/UB scandal." You can listen to the podcast here. You can also download a transcript of the show. (DonkDown)

I wish I was making this up... using game theory to help sexless marriages. Liquor helps... too. (Bloomberg)

Another compelling non-poker post from an online pro. Check out Your Body Is Awesome and Really Complicated; Please Don't Trust It To Idiots and Charlatans. (NoahSD)

Fake or not, this thread about Tony G not paying his rent is just fucking funny. (2+2)

Grange95 posted the second part of his series on the Intersection of Law & Online Poker. Part 2 covers Subject Matter Jurisdiction in Civil Cases. Excellent read. If you missed the first part, you can read Part 1 on Personal Jurisdiction. (crAAKKer)

Anguila needs your help getting a seat into the Spanish Poker Pro Masters. He needs your vote! (Runner-Runner)

I watched Network the other night, which inspired a post about two important scenes, including the most important conversation in the entire film... Corporate Cosmology vs. Mad As Hell. (Tao of Pauly)
That's it. You know the drill. NGTFOOMO!
