"It is Florence ion. Hello flow learning every. Buddy. Did you study for me? Did I study this is all even talking about? Although I don't. I've just been talking about this all week with everybody. I'll see so it's so it's all good. It's all fine. Then you've been you're warmed up and Casey's figuring it out. You know, it's finals week for my kids too. So there's a lot of a lot of studying going on. But I have to admit that the one thing that I get really nervous about in regards to these sort of things that are on the dock today is all that terminology of like, you know, the people people's, you know, where they are in government. And that sort of thing that stuff scares me for some reason, I'm just so afraid to get it wrong. It's not like you're going to be called before congress to testify was hope none of us are ever play. Why they don't pay me the big bucks? Welcome the opportunity to talk to congress, just personally. But oh, Hello. Steven Hackett producer of download who picked those interesting series of the equipped me. I just did that whole thing backward from we usually do it 'cause you talked. Hello. I'm sorry. This is off the rails. We should just sorry everybody before congress.

I like to imagine that that they invision this like back room where people are sitting at a probably very old computers going, oh, we got a search results coming in one. We want to tell them or like, this is what's happening in the tubes. Anyway, he dodged questions about moderation on YouTube didn't talk too much about the company's plans for China. He did a lot of dodging there too. But this being congress there were some questions that were some real do. Z's Zoe Lofgren of California Democrat said why a photo of Trump shows up in search results for the word idiot and Steve king Republican of Iowa who's a real piece of work, by the way had to be reminded that Google does not make the iphone so.."
