Mike Kid, California, Hawaii discussed on Armstrong and Getty


AM seven sixty K FM be talking breaking news now Armstrong and Getty. Scientists recently completed an experiment studying the effects of the drug MD octopuses, which is part of a bigger experiment of what happens when you give scientists LS day. Funny. So I'm not big on bathroom chatting. But one of the rock station guys. He says to me he says you mean if you're in the bathroom at work, you don't want to talk to people, right? Okay. Do your business wash your hands. Go out. There's a guy I was in the bathroom the day and a guy walked in guy like, but he was had his headpiece on the us talking on the cellphone walked in the bathroom. Did his thing. Flushed walked out while still talking. Yeah. Don't talk to me while you're doing your thing, man. There was a guy. I realized that could be a thousand miles away you have nothing to do with me. I just I don't want to know you're in. If you're on the phone with me and you hear like some sort of panic cavernous echo Kenner. And I say I'm in the garage. I don't have a garage. So. There was a guy I a couple of days ago in the stall during the serious business talking full volume on his cellphone totally unabashed, na, I'm pretty sure we can have it done by Thursday. I understand. Yeah. Yeah. That is that is I have to ask. But I think yeah. Sure. Yeah. I'm pretty comfortable in saying that. Yeah. Mike, I'm as likely to do that as I'm likely to take flight. I mean, the idea that I would do that just not not in my world. I'm not going to do that that seems wrong on a hundred different levels to me for me. Everybody. Nobody wins. Lose-lose you should be ashamed of going to the bathroom. So. I am. Palace. Apostle in one of the rock station. Guys system says if they built a bridge to Hawaii could you drive on it? I said, you know, I'd probably have to take some anxiety drugs because I would probably freak out. Eventually, I get my cow again. I get a little bit of anxiety on bridges and like super high ramps. Sometimes I don't know why anxieties worth thing. But my son does it's a it's a drag. Oh, man was afraid we're gonna fall offer. It's gonna collapse and I can anybody's ever driven to south Lake Tahoe. It's a California highway fifty. Driving through the woods, driving through the woods, driving through the woods for a long damn time curve and back and forth. A lot of pine trees. Really lovely. Here's a quaint little tourist town. Honey, more driving through the woods. Then all of a sudden with. No warning, you are on the edge of a cliff looking fifteen hundred feet down with the just a little aluminum guardrail between you and a caveman death. And the only thing I ever think is why would a gorgeous view, right? I'm with passengers. Oh my goodness. If something in the car. And you know, it's funny. The rational brain my rational brain in my irrational, brain have this giant fight where my rational brain is thinking is saying you've driven millions of miles. You're much better driver than the average person. This is a good car. Your tires are reasonably knew it would take a bizarre circumstance beyond all reason for anything bad to happen. The other part of my bracing fall. It's weird. You have no control of that. I don't have a half of one percent of anxiety about that. Just doesn't even I didn't even know. What does Mike kid has? Yeah. Yeah. It's weird. So anyway, but I picture myself on the bridge to Hawaii starting off being very excited. Hi, Jerry Brown project that I just heard as soon as the bullet trains done, and it's going to cost a billion to four hundred billion summer, but I can picture myself like being really excited and thinking. Wow. This is amazing Honey yell if you see a wail and fully getting like four hundred miles out in the Pacific and thinking over the edge. It's just it's death probably eaten by sharks probably chewed apart by sharks and just slowly going slower and slower and going more and more toward the exact middle of the road till I'm doing ten miles per hour straddling the lane marker right in the middle. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. They would have to have some sort of floating rest stop because it'd take your very long time driving from Miami. To key west is mostly bridge over the oath was going to ask you about that. And it's quite a ways hundred fifty miles or. Yeah. You got the Coronado bridge San Diego. It's a landmark in absolutely gorgeous. I prefer to be in one of the middle lanes the bay bridge, which is interesting. I just never think of that on the other hand people would say to me, why are you worried about getting shot? It doesn't hurt. Right. I mean, it hurts about as much as mosquito bite. I'm durda. What's interesting is came on late in life. And I have no idea why I don't want to hear that. So there are things I'm not afraid of now I could end up being afraid of you don't want that. And you know, I was comfortable with what I am afraid is is almost the wrong word or it's almost not quite a good enough word because it's it's a sudden in irrational, deep animal revulsion, it's like the same thing. If you saw a lion charging out of the bushes. It's completely involuntary end. Irrational, not as in Honey, you're being irrational. But in terms of being completely like, brain stem. My youngest son has that every second of his life. Yeah. Oh my God. Which is why he's paralyzed by fear all the time. Yeah. There's no control over that. My oldest son just occasionally gets it. But yet like going over a bridge or are we going to tip over? No, we're not going to tip over. It's never happened in the history of the world millions of cars Passover inspiration. But I know that that logic doesn't work. So what's the point of even trying? I guess you know, what it reminds me very much of my neighbor when I was growing up in Chicago land. We'd no no fences there, no privacy fences. Nobody I know what California's amazing nobody has a privacy fence, you stand your backyard. You'll look four yards over you. See your buddy. Dave. And you say, Dave how does that work with Dart's precisely my next door? Neighbor fewer dogs when I was a kid. I was about eight or so when my next door neighbors moved out and new folks moved in actually, they're they're pretty nice people. But they had a big bull mastiff that to an eight year old was the size of a lion. And this thing would charge at you through their backyard into my backyard and stop four feet shorter. You who and nothing ever happened other than that? But yeah. It's about the same feeling when one of those irrational, animal, phobia, fear, anxiety, things come over here. It's it's it's sake. That was a very good. Big dark. Our big dog. Bark. I thank you twenty a chance to work freaking dog. Oh, I hated hated it. I remember its name. The big dog next door not I mean, Bill Clinton either. So have you can they do hypnosis Ernie thing to do to get rid of them? Probably. Yeah. Probably. Yeah. I'll bet that would work for a lot of people in a lotta ways. What's the drugs and stuff, but I don't wanna make this the Ryan Seacrest or Kelly Ripa show or whatever. But do you have an executive? We haven't already mentioned that's like that with you. And that's that sucks about the only one. I can think of is the medical stuff. I don't know if I have another one. But it just an I'll think okay, not you're not gonna get worked up about it. This time you're getting Dr not a big deal. It doesn't hurt. You know, it doesn't hurt. And then at some point it'll just like overwhelmed my body's oh my God. Get out of here. Yeah. I think it makes no logical. Well, to some extent, it's it becomes a fear. Fear because it grows in your mind. Right. Yeah. I know I know that's the way it works. But I don't have it for ski lifts or cliffs earning. The other stuff I haven't when I'm in social situations. He lifts more or less. Why I don't ski. I mean, it's part of it. I just hate it so much prefer to put my skis on my shoulder and walk up the hill. It takes me like four and a half hours that'd be far too exhausted. The ski by the time I got to the top are four one five two nine five K FTC. I've known some people that public speaking was that level of fear one or more of my kids is struggling with anxiety of various sorts to. It's really it's it's crazy. And there's and we've talked about this before and will continue to. Did people just not talk about it? Or admitted by earns it way worse than you would be literature songs or movies or something something is in either. It's something about the way we're raising each other or there's plastics are its environmental weed killer, plus phones, social media screens everywhere never alone with our own thoughts. Could be that could be that. Maybe it's just the lack of quiet time the amount of time people used to get not that long ago completely different world. Maybe it's at the brain just doesn't get a chance to combat will. They see your quiet time. You're logical filing time when you put everything where it's supposed to be and yesterday. I would never do that picture your desk would be. Yeah. Yesterday. I had roughly zero minutes of that. Whereas couple generations ago, you had six hours of quiet time today or twelve hours of quiet time today. Yeah. Versus zero you're gonna say lead explains why when Marshall walk in the room you scores off four shots at him. I didn't see the pistol. You always carry obviously anxious in social. Situations. Win the web, or when the conversation goes too, much, small talk, and it's like, weather and stuff. That's when I got to get out of this room. I can't put up with me over not actually discussing anything advancing our knowledge of things. Okay. I'm gonna go. Find someone else to talk to some people crave. That they love it. I remember at some point. This is when I stopped going to these certain kinds of bars hanging around certain people, remember at some point. I don't remember what age I was a younger crowd. You know, twenties and thirties or whatever. And I I remember thinking to myself is they were all talking. I thought I can't listen to a conversation about how great Joe Montana was again in my life. I just drink beer. Just cannot do it. I'm done with this particular social set for the rest of my life. Hundred number the moment. Like a light switch done. Here. Can't hear this again. Do.

Coming up next
