Today we celebrate getting pumped up and our nation's fighting spirit. Today's celebration is about pumping you up. I'm not talking about your muscles, girly man. I'm talking about that underused super organ between your ears. It's estimated that we use only a small fraction of the true potential of our brains. And if you need more motivation, think about this, everything you see in the world around you was created in somebody's head. That means the three pounds of gray matter you now own was responsible for taking us out of the Stone Age into the age of computers and rockets. So how much heavy lifting are you doing these days? On national train your brain day get crackin. Even if it's only lifting a pencil to your favorite puzzle. On this day in 1775, the second Continental Congress formally established what would become the United States Navy. The most famous American captain from this era was John Paul Jones. In 1779, he engaged the British 44 gun Royal Navy frigate serapis, with his ship burning and sinking Jones refused to surrender, and he uttered the now famous words I have not yet begun to fight. And it turns out he was right. Three hours after making this declaration, the British ship surrendered to him and Jones took command. On our navy's birthday, we celebrate the men and women who carry on the fighting spirit of captain Jones. It takes some chutzpah, right? Yes. Thank you, John. Big thank you to all the people who have served our country. Absolutely. And how about pumping up your brain, marlowe? You're not doing your part but I know. Thought you were gonna get up. What's in my muscle right now? What are you talking about? I managed to beer. I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we celebrate every day. See you tomorrow.
