Couple on and the kids are just punching the tree as hard as they can. And just go. Yes, yes, yes. Power power power. What? What is their dad doing? I'm clapping for the kids. I'm saying that's great kids work up that energy. This is a really good way to empower your spirit. If you could just be a little bit more respectful of the tree is my only concern. We're supposed to be doing our power cleansing energy ritual to the heir to the Open air which could receive our positive spirits spare immediately starts like stripping bark off the tree with his nails that are like getting buddy and just being thorough. Make you a naked trea naked tree that I will then punch Sparrow. How would you like it? If someone ripped off your skin without Ah, he just he just ignores. You just got to power and just continues to punch the tree. Okay, boys, it looks like our right is here.

You're next Trivia night s O, uh, diarrhea all day. No, that's no blandness. The molasses of the back. Yeah. Yeah, You know, it would be nice is if to hear a story about molasses. Well, that's good news, Chris, because I have just the story for you. Well, that's good, because we're the history boys. I'm Chris Tyler. Tyler Tyler is here and And Duke Duke. Yeah, I guess I could be Duke Duke Duke Sanchez. I am Jerry Nash and Zach, of course, is on audio via via satellite and his remove bunker. Several stories underneath the crust of the United States that nice safe from molasses safely say from well meaning once. If it did happen to get molasses down there. You're not getting it out. You're gonna pump that stuff. Just got a band in the bunker and find a new bunker. It's a sweet, sticky grave. Luckily, we built that separate The lastest tunnel for him to escape out of the case that molasses pours down into the bunker. We got an engraved sign form and everything that says in case of molasses leave here and I didn't even know about the molasses flood of the time. I barely know anything about it now because I didn't do the research I, Jerry. Tell us a story about molasses. I'm glad I'm glad you want to hear it now. Well, you know, not many people are familiar with the great Boston molasses flood of 1919 the fatally tragic events that happened 100 years ago. Every time I learned, the more I learn about this The more I'm like. It's like they're like we're trying to tell you. It's tragic. It's not hilarious. It does. It's not something that was like made up for, like an old timey cartoon. But then, in my research, I heard that one of its nicknames is legitimately. The great molasses occur. Thank you kidding. The great Boston Molasses, Sir of 1990 media. That's its primary source. They did not call it. The molasses liquor. They called them elastic. Really? I would have I think. 2020. What is it? 117 people injured, 21 dead. That's um Alaska. If you ask me something I did not force citations. Bada Bing. Alright, I'm not going to check those side. It was not in dark tide, which is a fantastic book. It was in the Boston molasses disaster causes of the molasses tank explosion. Boiler work by Eric Hendrickson. There you go. Not not our primaries really restored in this episode, I think worth shouting out anyway. Yeah, this a giant Tank that's stored. A lot of molasses basically burst in Boston's North End neighborhood on January 15th 1919. And destroyed completely destroyed the neighborhood. It's I literally think at the time, they said. There goes the neighborhood and I meant it on just a little bit and back Then they everyone talked with like the old tribal voice. There goes my molasses. More chance did and it's done. This is all over me. Raspberries, My sweet boys drowning last again. Who's going to run the factory when I get too old just to give a little bit of perspective and have big the molasses tank. We're gonna talk about it every night there yet, But we're not there. We're not there yet. But first I want to talk about too much too much research on a flex over. Can't you be more like me know research? I feel like there's a happy middle. There is there is A couple of things about molasses before we get to the actual tank. Here we go. Oh ho Boy. Molasses is a non Newtonian substance meaning that forced us to be applied to it in order for it to move like it's not water like It doesn't just run everywhere. It's like toothpaste or ketchup. Like you have to, like. Hit the bottle for the ketchup, Kindness cosseted. Yeah, yeah, famously high viscosity. Yes, indeed. So considering this physical property, molasses would be far more deadly than just a giant wave of water and swimming in it is Impossible. Not with that attitude. You could be a matter if it was a non nuclear ian liquid. That would be well, that would be even more so Pretty cool. So not only is molasses used for like syrups and sweeteners. It is used for booze and barbecue sauce and munitions, Celia. Well, well, it's made well, its mane. Saying that people used it for was distilling it down into alcohol and the alcohol..
