"We're all going through some degree of hardship right now but most of us have family or friends in person via technology to help us through in that respect alone. We're doing a lot better than the subjects of today's episode. Take for instance Ricky McGee in two thousand and six when he stumbled in front of a pickup truck of two Australian Ranch Workers Jack Larussa the local parlance. He's deeply sun-scorched. Skin hung off skeleton. They weren't even sure they were looking at a man and not some demon of the northern outback. Things had been considerably better for McGee. Ten weeks earlier the thirty five year old was hale and hearty and had just landed a new job driving along a baron. North Australia highway. He spotted a group of stranded travelers in their vehicle on the side of the road knowing it could be a long time before anyone else came by. He let some of the men get into his car to drop them at the next town. That was the last thing he could clearly remember. He came to in the middle of the desert stripped naked and barefoot under the harsh Sun which bonus fact bombards Australia with more UV rays and other continents because of the whole meal zone layer. Mcgee had nothing not even a notion of which way to go waiting for help to find him seemed fruitless so he began to walk each morning. He told himself today was the day today. He would see a house or town. At least erode he could follow each day ended the same as the day before there was one ameliorating factor in his situation. The rainy season had just ended and there was water to be found. He found a decent size waterhole and began to try to make shelter one week had ticked by before food in the form of a lizard crossed. Mcgee's path he was able to catch and kill it with his bare hands. Laying the meat out in the sun to dry McGee's diet was made up of anything that walked crawled or slithered past him lizards snakes grasshoppers bugs and even leeches after his ordeal. Mcgee said that the Leeches weren't bad but you had to eat them quickly otherwise they'd attached to the inside of your mouth. He also eight any plant that passed a taste test which is not strictly speaking the best way to find non poisonous plants but he got lucky. His Diet was diverse. But not plentiful calories were thin on the ground no pun intended dingoes have begun prowling around trying to decide if he was meet yet starving weakening and beginning to despair mcghie fashioned across for the top of his shelter. It seemed likely that the shelter would become his casket but he managed to stay alive when he'd been carjacked. Mcgee weighed two hundred thirty three pounds or about one hundred and five kilograms when the jackaroo found him he only weighed a hundred pounds or forty five kilograms but he was alive. He managed to keep himself going alone in the desert for seventy one days in what his rescuers described as one of the most isolated places in Australia. Mcgee was flown to the Royal Darwin Hospital where medical staff described as a but well hydrated a credit to his decision to stay at the waterhole police and the media were initially suspicious of McGee's story assuming that his previous minor drug offence must have meant he'd been up to dirty deals with dirty dealers and that's how he ended up stranded. His stolen car never turned up. Which would have helped his story. Mcgee even offered to eat a frog on live. Tv BUT THANKFULLY BUSH. Survival experts weighed in that his story was plausible. So no more frogs for Ricky. Mcgee water kept Ricky McGee alive but it was nearly the death of Jose Alvarenga a man who would probably rather not hold the record for the longest time spent adrift at Sea alone in November. Twenty Fifteen Alvarenga. And please forgive me. If at some point ISLIP and say Alvarez it's almost guaranteed to happen was getting his gear together for a thirty hour deep sea fishing trip off the coast of Costa Zule Mexico. His quarry were sharks. Marlins and sailfish expensive fish. That would hopefully give him an edge over his competition. The trip didn't get off to a promising. Start WHEN ALVAREZ. Usual partner backed out at the last minute and he took on a less experienced. Fishermen named Ezekiel Cordova that he'd never even spoken to before that day but he figured it was a short trip so everything would be OK on. November seventeenth the pair. Sit Out on a twenty four foot fiberglass. Gif small was boats go with fishing gear a radio an enormous cooler. That would soon be almost overloaded with fish just a few hours into their journey though a storm world and it stayed for five days. They had to dump their catch to lighten the boat. So it'd be more maneuverable. Alvarenga tried to steer the boat back to shore but he couldn't see where the shore was in the pounding rain and the little ship didn't have. Gps when the storm finally cleared the men found that the motor was gone as was most of the fishing here and the electronics were all badly damaged unlike the passengers of the SS minnow. Who took all of their belongings on a three hour cruise Alvarenga and Cordova had only a day's worth of food and water. There was enough charge in the backup battery of the two way radio for Ranga to get a mayday message out. But he couldn't tell us potential rescuers where he was because he simply didn't know what part of the seemingly endless Pacific Ocean they were in the search teams had tried to look for them but the rain had made it impossible. There was no way to know how long they would be out there. So the men turned to the sea for survival. Alvarenga was able to catch fish turtles and seabirds with his bare hands. Though Cordova was basically useless. In those efforts the turtles were lucky. Catch their meat is actually rich in vitamin C. Which prevented the men from developing scurvy? They collected rainwater when there was rain to collect but otherwise had to hydrate themselves with a mixture of turtle blood and urine there. You're in the sun rose and set dozens of times but the flat horizon of the ocean remained. Unbroken

"Hello this is Stephanie. And this is talk tales and Trivia. The show where. I talk about pop culture trivia. Listen I love researching pop culture trivia so that you can stump your family and friends with Great Trivia on today's episode. I thought I would talk about the content the entertainment that we watch and read and listen to at home. That's right it could be a movie. A book or podcast. Well it is all double or triple the entertainment and content. And you'll understand what I'm talking about in a few minutes. Listen I love dystopia anything? And if you've been listening to this podcast you know it. Well to stop in is so popular right now and to stop anything is popular but did you know that it is a sub genre that is under the huge science fiction genre and it is very popular. Well think of all the movies and books that you've read and other entertainment that you've watched that is using the scare factor or the desperation factor that brings in misery or discomfort. Or just something that you are not comfortable with well. That is a distortion emotion. Right it brings in something that is just foreign to you. And that would also be a change to the human condition This is perfect for living environment of social unrest including social distancing and working remotely and we are certainly doing a lot of that so there are so many people much more than. Let's just say your ago that have taken to a distortion entertainment to still be in anything. It could be a book like. I said it could be a movie or it could be a podcast and that is all under the distortion genre. Now if we're gonNA have a dystopia genre we'll guess what we have to have the opposite and that is a utopian genre and there is that no. What is the difference? Well of course you know the difference. I'm going to give you a definition right now. Well what does dystopia mean and I will tell you right now? Dictionary Dot Com has a great definition. Here a society characterized by human misery as squalor oppression disease and overcrowding. That's right and now I will give you the definition for utopia or utopian. Well of course it means the exact opposite of distortion it. Means of relating to or just having to do with idealized perfection given too impractical or unrealistic schemes of such perfection. It's an idealized perfection. And that's something that we don't really see very often so we tend to go towards the dystopia N- types things well. This is perfect for living in an environment of social unrest including social distancing and working remotely that we have had to get used to in the recent past. But I want to tell you about a couple of movies that are wonderful and then you can also read the books. And sometimes and one of the instances you can also get a podcast is a really good thing as well. Well the first thing I want to talk about is the most dangerous game. Well what is that? Well I read the Schwartz story when I was probably very young in the nineteen seventies and it is a short story that came out in nineteen twenty four by Richard Connell and it is a wonderful short story Nelson for the nineteen thirty eight film adaptation. You can see the most interest game and it is so cool. Well the most dangerous game about hunt but this is a different kind of hunt and you will find it very interesting. Read the Short Story and see the movie and guess what it is. Just become a series on qube DOT com. Now qube is very interesting and I want to mention this because I just discovered it is shorter episodes but the same kind of story. They just cut out a little bit of the excess things that they didn't need and the short story or the movie but this is very interesting so on Qube it is an episodic short series thirteen episodes with Liam Hemsworth and they are really easy and Benge worthy. So do that next. I WanNa talk about a book that I read in Maimi junior high school and that is nineteen eighty-four. Well George Orwell wrote the book in Nineteen Forty nine and he can kind of see the future. It is a warning of what is to come. The story takes place in an imagined. Future the year well nineteen eighty-four when much of the world has fallen victim to perpetual war? Omnipresent government surveillance and propaganda. Well it is not a fun place to live and it is not a fun time to be alive in nineteen eighty. Four is a great book. You don't WanNa miss it? Read the book. See the movie and the concept of the book and the movie was used to record a super bowl ad in nineteen eighty four now on youtube and that will be in the show notes. It represents the control of technology and how it's taking over and the ad big brother is represented by IBM Somewhat and the takeaway from the ad is the world is going to change because of computers That did happen next. I love this and it is the center. Well the first season starring Jessica Biel was great but they have three seasons. And what is going on is why a murder was committed and keeps you guessing. Well it stars. Bill Pullman as well as the investigator in all three seasons I know it's not distortion but it's worth a watch. It's a mystery thriller psychological thriller psychological fiction and it is on net flicks three seasons. You don't WanNa miss it? It is Binge Worthy Watch the series and read the book now. Next is a funny kind of situation. I came across this and I wasn't planning on it. I was just had a little bit of free time and is the stranger. Well what is that about? The Stranger is a British mystery thriller series written by Danny Brocklehurst and based on the two Thousand Fifteen Harlem copen novel of the same title. Try to get that at Amazon. And you won't be able to the mini series premiered on net flex in January of twenty twenty just a couple months ago and it stars Richard Armey Taj. Who is best known for the Hobbit Oceans Eight and Captain America and it starts one of my favorites. And I know some people won't recognize the name Jennifer Saunders and she was an absolutely fabulous a British comedy so watch the series the stranger. It's so interesting. Okay now. We're going to go back into a DYSTOPIA and type of deal and this is really fun. Try to get all these friends and people to watch and not everybody gets it but I know that you will. It is called Black Mirror and there's five seasons it is a British distillery and science fiction and Black Mirror was inspired by the twilight zone. That's right dealing with controversial contemporary topics with less fear of censorship than other more realistic programs. It highlights topics related to humanity's relationship with technology and the stories that feature the way we live now and the scary and Weird Way. We might be living in the future.
What is a Camera?
"Listener Carlos would like to know what is a camera is a phone camera is an on camera. Do they have cameras in them? What is a camera in this day and age? Where our picture taking devices are funds? People get so confused when the world changes and then people want the word to change with the world and sometimes it does but you brought up a great point. They're talking about phones. We still call them phones. It doesn't really make much sense anymore anyway. Cameras so cameras have existed for a long time as in the thing that you pointed a personnel light to enter it and it produces an image somehow later that you can look at and say this is what his camera so at that particular moment in time right. That's a camera and now because have gotten smaller and digital and are embedded in other things and the thing. Most of US carry around. That has a camera in it is our quote unquote phone. And so what is the camera? Is Our phone a camera? A camera is still a camera. Those are still things that exist and as you note in the beginning phones have cameras in them. Lots of things cameras in them. My car has a camera and it is my Carne Cameron. All cars sold the United States after the twenty seventeen molly your I believe are required to have backup cameras and you might sell since the camera. Most people have in their phone pretty soon. The camera will also begin their car. Let's make car camera. I kinda like the idea of being camera. That would be pretty funny but it also is ridiculous. It's the same type of logic and especially since he was like well. That's not the main purpose of the car. The car's taking from places places just happens to have a camera and I would argue that. The main purpose of the phone is not to take photos either also not to make phone calls but it just goes to show that the word has a way of sticking well past the definition so no phone is not a camera. Phone has a camera in it. A phone may be the camera that most people have on them all the time because they have their phones on them. It's also the phone. They have on the most the time because people don't carry phones with them otherwise these days we could argue the old style camera while we're really talking about and I use this term every now and then when I'm referring to like an S. L. Are is a dedicated camera. It's an object. That is just a camera. That is what it's meant to be a camera but we also have cameras in our cars on phones and ipads and whatever else. There's some teas that have cameras. There's cameras also in our glasses maybe And it won't make our glasses into cameras either. They'll be glasses with cameras. My Amazon Echo has a camera in it. It is not a camera. Yeah I mean I think the thing people think of is a thing you have with you. Yeah hold up and it's the same definitions as camera because shares those constraints like well. The ECHO is plugged in getting out of the car is a vehicle. And you can't wear your shooting. It doesn't save pictures of just displays them and says all sorts of reasons why you could say that the phone is most like camera is true. It has a lot of similarities but for the time being. Your phone is not a camera. A camera is a device that you pointed things and let's light in records that image in some way and lets you see it later. The reason that's the cameras because I describe a camera. There's a thing like that inside your phone. The let's light in and records and imaging zones over th but there's lots of other stuff inside your phone and that's why your phone is your phone and cameras camera. There's nothing else really a camera besides the thing that records images and maybe some machinery that annotated with the date and GPS coordinates and helps transferred out of that camera to something else. But that's about it now. It's not say can't change. Well you should buy again in one hundred years and see how things have evolved for. Now your cameras you cameron. Your phone is your phone. But it's got a camera in it by the way John. I'm seeing here that there is one car. That is a camera so the Toyota Camry Terrible. I agree you're

"A lot of playing board games these days and that's pretty fitting human making board games for a long time like a long longtime seven thousand years or more for a bit of historical context. We stopped hunter-gathering and settled down to be farmers about ten thousand years ago rather than try to cram seven thousand years in six occupied continents worth of history into a half hour podcast. I'll hit some of the high points. Especially the less well-known once the earliest gaming pieces ever found are forty nine. Small carved painted stones found a five thousand year old burial mound in southeast Turkey. Similar pieces have been found in Syria and Iraq and seemed to point devoid games originating in the Fertile Crescent. You remember the Fertile Crescent from the first week of world history class. It's the same region discovered alcohol invented papyrus and made calendars all of which you need. If you're hosting game night other early dice games were created by painting a single side of a flat. Stick these sticks would be tossed at once and that would be your role Mesopotamia. Dice were made from a variety of materials including carved knuckle bones would painted stones and turtle shells. No wonder folks used to say roll them bones dice from the Roman era. Looks like the six sided die. We use today though. Some of them had their corners. Cut off to be able to reach a higher number not unlike dungeons and dragons dice. Imagine excavating a distant Roman out host and finding a D twenty serious cricket board games became popular among the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. And that shouldn't surprise. That board games were a bigger part of life for upper class people since they have both money for entertainment and time to play. Even before the first dynasty Egypt loved a game called Senate. It's even seen on. The walls of tombs and copies of the game are buried with noble people. Ancient Egyptians were strong believers in the concept of fate. And that your luck in the game of Senate meant that you were under the protection of the major gods of the Pantheon raw toe to toe Cyrus. The significance of the game is clear. The game play not as clear. Historians have made educated guesses as to the rules more on that later and Board Game. Companies have used those guesses as a jumping off place to make modern versions. Four Games also became tied into religious beliefs. One such game was Mahan played around three thousand. B C e Mahan was a protective God depicted as a snake with coils around the Sun God raw during his journey through the night the game and the God became intertwined. Tim Kendall and ancient Egyptian historian believes that it's not possible to know for sure with the information we have available whether the game was inspired by an existing deity or the Deity was inspired by the game. Many people think backgammon is the longest plate of all the board games with evidence that it existed around two thousand B C but there is an extant game. That is a little bit older. Relatively speaking the royal game of for the game gets its name from being found in the royal tombs of in Iraq. There was also a set found in Pharaoh. Tutankhamun tune the game. Play is simple but very familiar. You're trying to get all of your pieces around the board first thumping off your opponent's pieces along the way again. Proving there's nothing new under the Sun. The royal game of herb was played with four sided or tetrahedral dice. A D Four for the tabletop games out there. Even though the game's over four thousand years old amazingly we found a copy of the rules Irving Finkel the British museum deciphered cuneiform tablet and discovered. It was the rules for the Royal Game of Earth. He then saw a photograph of a nearly identical board game being played in modern India. That makes the Royal Game of Earth. The longest played game in history and there is a great video of Irving Finkel. Who has ever so pleasantly mad teaching youtuber or Tom Scott how to play Lincoln the show notes and a little clip right here. Because I just couldn't help myself. All sorts of evidence has come to live so that we know how this game was played and we can play it now with a great deal of excitement. Sometimes it brings out violence. Come Times it brings out savagery. I have to say that this so we've decided to bring in a member of the public. I can't remember the name on Tom. Scott I make videos about science technology in the world. Who's never paid this game before? I have never played this game before. I'm Gandhi swift overview of the walls. Hope he masses and I'm getting to play of course play gently at first because I don't say hi to hang I'm to wipe the floor with it wouldn't do it for me even discovered these rules and I'll throw in his mind. Game listing whitlow. Marta is similar to that question of modern. There were some minor differences s today. Each player has fifteen checkers and uses six sided dice to be the first to bear off. All of one's checkers. I confess that I am reading that. From a website verbatim. I know less about that. Yemen do cricket. Backgammon had a renewed surge of popularity in the nineteen sixties which is held longtime for a comeback. Thanks in part to the charisma of Prince Alexis. Obolensky the father of modern backgammon cigarette liquor and car. Companies began to sponsor tournaments and Hugh Hefner held backgammon parties at the Playboy Mansion. At the same time that the Romans were playing Latin backgammon. The Chinese were play. We she or you may have heard of it. Go Que- she may even predate the game of twelve markings and the royal game of Earth. According to legend which has a pesky habit of morphing into history quay g was created by the ancient Chinese. Emperor Yell to teach his son on Ju discipline. Concentration and balance the popularity of wage e grew throughout Eastern Asia especially in Japan. Which is where the name go comes from another ancient game which is still out there and a favourite of nearly every household in my family is the African game of Mangala in our modern parlance. Munkala refers to a specific game. But the name actually belongs to an entire genre of games a genre eight hundred traditional games strong. This family of Board Games is played around. The world is referred to as Sewing Games S. O. W. I N. G. Devotes the way that you pick up and drop the stones playing pieces like you were sowing seeds in the ground. The word Mukalla comes from the Arabic Nicola to move most one college games share a common structure where each player has gained pieces in divots on the board and moves them to capture their opponent's pieces leading them to also be called count and capture games. The boards can be wooden clay even just little holes in the dirt playing pieces of everything from seeds. Stones shells anything near at hand that fits in the holes. The earliest evidence of the game are fragments of pottery. Board found in Eritrea dated to the sixth century CE. Though if the games were played with seeds on wooden boards or pebbles in divots in the dirt the game could be even older. The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence after all that particular logical fallacy is called argument from ignorance at ignorant him. And it's not a good look now. We go to the land of ice and snow of the Midnight Sun. Where the hot springs flow Scandinavians played chess. Like game called. Nevin tough at least as early as four hundred see. I'm sure my clever listeners haven't forgotten that. Viking refers to the raids undertaken by a small portion of the population themselves called Viking US meaning kings table noth- Atoll was a war strategy game. The kings objective was to escape to the edge of the board while the opponents laurel objective was to capture him. The attacking force had the natural advantage at the start of each game. Perhaps mimicking a cultural mindset of a small group being victorious against a larger force like say a few boats full of Viking attacks against the army of an English King Scandinavians spread the game to Ireland Britain and Wales through. Let's call it. Unexpected cultural exchange archaeologists have also discovered that it was popular as far to the east as Ukraine.
It's The End Of The World! (Again)
"Heaven's Gate wasn't a modern outlier. Apart from the whole two thousand twelve with the Mayan calendar there have been a number of supposed dates for the end of the world. Or of the rapture. What have you? Multiple predictions were made by Harold Camping. Ceo and host of the Christian family radio network programming began as standard hymns and Bible readings. Then things started to get weird camping's first prediction was that the rapture would occur on September fourth or sixth of nineteen. Ninety four left himself a little wiggle room there as well as in the title of his book. Nineteen Ninety four question mark. Nineteen ninety-four came and went but that didn't seem to damage camping's credibility with family radio listeners. He went back to his math. Which we'll get into shortly because walkers and decided the date had to be may twenty first twenty. Eleven according to family radio's website. The Bible guarantees it. I will come a massive earthquake. Powerful enough to throw open all graves. Then we'll follow a slow dying off of all non-believers until the end of the world. This was supposed to begin at Christmas Island in the South Pacific at six PM. Local time going around the world with earthquakes and soon armies hitting each time zone at six. Pm Family Radio and camping's followers funded a huge publicity campaign to warn people park bench ads around the country over three thousand billboards around the world and a five RV caravan to tour America and Canada handing out pamphlets to non believers one ardent believer gave up the better part of his retirement savings. Almost one hundred and fifty thousand dollars to help the campaign. What would money matter after he was raptured? Anyway people quit. Their jobs took their kids out of ran up huge credit card bills and did other unadvisable things. That sound like fun when you think there are no consequences even true believers had to reevaluate things when on May twenty second. The world is still here. There are plenty of videos on youtube of that very moment when the apocalypse feels to start you kind of have to feel bad for the fellow that spent his life savings flags. I didn't do the dishes before I left. I didn't expect to be going back on. What looks like I will be going back to your dishes. Camping backpedalled and claimed that meant final judgment was going to be on the twenty first of May but the actual apocalypse wasn't going to be until October twenty first by that point the believers had stopped believing and the media didn't find it sporting to make fun of him anymore. Camping said he was flabbergasted that his predictions had been wrong. How could his math have been so far off? Here is the math. Used Not a word of a lie. People who got higher than a D in Algebra. Both Times like me might want to double check his figures. He started with April. I thirty three C as the date of the crucifixion seems arbitrary. But we know he then took the numbers. Seventeen representing heaven. Ten for completeness and five for Atonement Because One Bible Verse Mentions Half Shekel or point five. Shackle multiply them together square the result and you get seven hundred twenty two thousand five hundred. That's the number of days between the crucifixion. And the second coming his mouth did account for leap years. But I don't know if camping or anyone else who calculated the end of days included things like the shift to the Julian calendar when the Roman Empire just negated eleven days skipped right over them another thing that all the biblical athletes seem to have missed is a verse in the Book of Matthew that specifically says no man can know when the end is coming. So it's actually heretical to claim that you do. The math of basic economics caught up with camping and family radio. They had spent huge sums of money both corporate and donated on the awareness campaign after the hat trick of failures plus another ten predictions. I didn't even get into donations all but stopped and the network was drowning in debt. The world finally ended for Herald camping on December fifteenth. Twenty thirteen when he died after a fall at age. Ninety two. And that's where we run out of ideas at least for today but going back to Joanna south caught. She wasn't a con artist as far as we can tell. She believed in what she was saying. As did her followers South Khan died. Two months after the MESSIAHS projected due date having demonstrably never been pregnant for followers initially refused to bury her believing she would rise from the dead when it became clearly obvious from even a cursory visual or olfactory inspection that she was not coming back the group agreed to bury her south got left behind a locked box full of predictions which she said could only be opened in a time of national crisis in the presence of all twenty four Anglican Bishops. The box was supposedly opened by a psychic researcher and was found to contain unimportant papers a lottery ticket and a

My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Use It up where it out make it do were do without my grandmother would say. I thought that was clever saying from her side of the family but it was actually a slogan from World War Two encouraging the public to use fewer resources so more could be diverted to the war effort. We're all getting a taste of that as we're hunker down unable to shop at the spur of the moment and much more limited in our choices when we do thankfully we do have precedent to fall back on after all people are still alive today it through the Great Depression children. The roaring twenties came to an abrupt stop with the Stock Market Crash of Nineteen Twenty nine which saw billions of dollars evaporated into thin air. The crash wasn't the sole cause of the Great Depression. There were things like the dust bowl wherein incorrect farming methods turned the fertile American planes into a desert but the crash did act to accelerate the global economic collapse by nineteen thirty three. Nearly half of America's banks failed and thirty percent of the workforce was unemployed. You had to make the most of what you had and you had to get good at that fast to women. Help struggling homemakers to be able to feed their families. Eleanor Roosevelt an aunt. Sammy beginning in nineteen twenty. Six and Sammy had a popular weekday. Radio show called housekeepers chat about cooking and other domestic concerns as well as chitchatting about whatever else was going on at the time and Sammy was very popular especially in rural areas. Thousands of people wrote into her for recipes by nineteen thirty to one hundred and ninety four stations broadcast aunt. Sammy show and she published aunt. Sammy's radio recipes. Parenthetically the Great Depression Cookbook. It would be the first cookbook published in Braille. Interestingly enough though I struggle to think of how difficult it would be to cook on wood or old timey gas stove without good eyesight on Sammy's recipes. Were meant to be simple healthy and easy to cook. She's even credited with helping Broccoli. Find widespread acceptance prior to which it was only found in insular Italian neighborhoods and Sammie helped many wives and mothers through the Great Depression but once that was over then country was back on its feet. People lost interest. The show was cancelled sometime in the nineteen forties. Though sources don't agree when exactly. There's one other fact about aunt Sammy. That's worth mentioning. She didn't exist in the latter half of the twentieth. The Department of Agriculture Bureau of Home Economics created a wife for uncle. Sam The on creatively named Aunt Sammy. The character was voiced by different women at each individual radio station that way the listener would hear an accent similar to their own and feel more connected to aunt Sammy. Three women worked behind the scenes at the USDA to prepare the script each week that all the regional aunt. Sammy's would use fanny Walker. Contested Recipes Josephine. Harmful wrote the chatty portions of the show and Ruth Fan demine coordinated all of the Menus and recipes. The other woman who guided homemakers through was the very real first lady. Eleanor Roosevelt. When Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House in Nineteen thirty three? A record number of people were hungry but being president is not without its perks and the first family eight well even extravagantly while people stood inbred lines. Eleanor Roosevelt. Who didn't know how to cook realized that the way she and the president ate in the White House had the potential to influence and even help the nation through the depression. She hired an acquaintance. Henrietta Nesbitt whose husband was out of work to be the new White House housekeeper housekeeper at that time more like how we use the term homemaker today and not as we use a euphemism for cleaning lady. Nesbitt and Roosevelt retooled the entire kitchen installing modern appliances and coaxing the skeptical White House staff to use them. This was the first kitchen in America and it wasn't even sanitary recalled. Nesbitt in her memoir. Meanwhile Eleanor turn to home economists for menus that would balance nutrition and economy the healthiest recipes in the world wouldn't help people if they couldn't afford the ingredients what's more she resolved to serve these humble dishes in the White House. Her efforts were covered by national newspapers and followed closely by housewives. There was a catch. These nutritious economic meals were awful. The first kitchen was turning out some of the most unpalatable meals in modern memory. The president himself was usually the test subject for these new dishes and he obligingly choked them down. Things like deviled eggs with tomato sauce and prune pudding in place of lavish dishes. The White House table was the stage for things like Spaghetti with boiled carrots. Cold jellied billion and bread and butter sandwiches served so much mutton that being grown sheep which is cheaper than lamb. Because it's much tougher that it became a joke throughout Washington. The first lady experimented with foods like milk corno a mix of dried milk powder and cornmeal developed by Cornell University milk. Porno could be eaten as a gruel like dish or worked into recipes. I was not brave enough to research. What those recipes might be. The bland meals became so notorious that visitors to the White House would eat before they went nutrition. Not Taste was paramount in the time of soup. Kitchens and bread lines and eleanor. Roosevelt was trying to use her table as a way of encouraging and inspiring other Americans to get through this uniquely challenging historical moment. It was just as well they got used to eating a limited range of food because FDR's presidency also included World War Two and the Roosevelt's eight rationed food just like everyone else Roosevelt's White House eight modestly in an act of culinary solidarity with the people who were suffering. Jane's Eagle men. The CO author of a square meal told The New York Times. Here's a sampling of menu items. The first family and the public general might have enjoyed in massive bunny ears spaghetti with carrots and white sauce. The sauce was basically just milk. Meatless loaf made with peace oatmeal peanuts. Rice and or cottage cheese. Whatever you could get your hands on Mulligan's stew any animal. You could kill or find dead with whatever veggies you could manage or anything. That would keep hungry. They for a few hours without killing you like sawdust. It was reportedly created by the massive homeless population during the depression. Where people in homeless or migrant worker camps would pool their resources so that everyone could eat none of my sources mentioned where the name Mulligan might have come from. We do know the name origin of another STU. Hoover Stu Herbert Hoover had been elected just in time for the crash. But Unlike the Roosevelt's he continued to live the good life in the White House. Shantytowns BECAME HOOVER. Villes and the soup from soup. Kitchens became hoover stu the weirdest one of all and this report is opinion was peanut butter in baked. Onions was a whole onion hollowed out stuffed with peanut butter and baked. Just because we have two things on hand doesn't mean we should eat them at the same time as Eagle men succinctly put it. Peanut butter has nothing to say to a baked onion. Some recipes sound like they shouldn't work but surprisingly do like mock Apple Pie. Apples weren't readily available. But Americans weren't willing to give up their conic Apple Pie. The apples in mock apple pie were actually Ritz crackers and it worked. If you're not already familiar with Youtuber Emmy made in Japan. I'll link her hard time series in the show notes and on the website. She all kinds of dishes from times of deprivation including hot water pie grapefruit. Peel steak toast soup. And even the Haitian dirt cookies which you can hear more about in episode number ninety four. My name is mud while we can be grateful that recipes like ketchup soup and peanut butter and mayonnaise. Sandwiches are behind us. Some food created during the depression is still with us. Meatloaf is a comfort food classic and shaping food into loaves go to during the Great Depression. The same goes for casseroles which were a good way to use up odds and ends or to mask less palatable ingredients the depression also gave us the mother of all comfort. Food Kraft Macaroni and cheese or kraft dinner for my friends up. North in Nineteen thirty seven craft heard about a salesman from the tender Roni. Macaroni Company of Saint Louis. A Scottish emigrant aimed grant Leslie going rogue and selling his noodles with packets of greeted kraft cheese attached. They hired him to promote the concept and started selling it for nineteen cents for four servings.
I Moved - Moving Day
"Hello this is Stephanie. And this is talk tales and Trivia the show I talked about pop culture and Trivia. Listen I love to research pop culture trivia and I love to share that information with you so that you can stump your family and friends. It is so much fun on today's episode. I thought I would talk about moving something that I did quite recently. Listen moving is never easy and we don't have to pretend we all know that is something maybe perhaps you would use the word chore that we don't like to do but we always love to get our places are new places all fixed up and looking great but the actual moving day is so hard but let me start with a little history. I well on average more than forty million people move each year and the United States. Did you know that it is estimated that eighty percent of those moves occur between April and September? While why is that well? This is referred to as peak season. Well why is that during this time? The demand for movers is very high especially in June July and August which tend to be the busiest months. Well why is that well? I'll tell you it's obvious that the spring and Summer seasons are easier and less harsh for moving because of the weather right. The weather is beautiful and those spring and Summer seasons perfect for moving well from the colonial times up until World War Two may. I was moving day the one day a year when people and New York City specifically moved it said that the tradition came from the Dutch. Who set out from Manhattan on May first and therefore celebrate each year by swapping homes on this day while layer landlords had to notify their tenants of rent increases on February first which would take effect three months later at nine A. M. Precisely tenants. Wade until may first to move and the streets would be filled with quote moving vans and quote. Long Island. Farmers Wagons led by horses clogging up the city streets and creating complete penumonia while I can believe that in eighteen ninety the city started to regulate moving rates and it costs two dollars per one horse truckload within two miles and a whopping fifty cents per extra mile. That was a lot back then. Even schools were closed on May first. That's how serious this day was as it was estimated that a million people moved simultaneously at the height of moving day. May I by the end of the nineteenth century? Many New Yorkers spent their summers in the suburbs and who wouldn't so beautiful and they moved upon their return making October first a second moving day well when World War Two began it was nearly impossible to find enough moving men on one day that one day so the tradition began to lose steam and once Rent Control. Went into effect shortly after the custom was erased. Completely well did you know that Quebec Canada still has a moving day. July first is moving day for most residents in that area and it is also Canada Day which just adds to the chaos. Well do you live an apartment or a house? Well apartments tend to offer greater proximity to public transit and to the city type activities that we love so much they typically have less space and so are less expensive to rent heat and cool they also have on site amenities like a gym a pool and a common area just like mine does and they almost always come with maintenance and yard services which is really great. Because I don't WanNa show snow or mo any lawn at all. Renting a house on the other hand means you're more likely to have a yard which is important if you have kids or pets and if you've got big pets they're more likely allowed a rental house than an apartment sure. Another major advantage of houses is the privacy. Yep you're less likely to hear the neighbors through the walls and you'll probably have plenty of room to park your car on the downside. You may be responsible for snow removal and mowing and other yard maintenance that I hate so much well. Did you know in the West thirty? Three percent of renters are apartments in the mid west. Forty four percent of renters are in apartments in the south well houses do dominate and just twenty seven percent of renters are in apartments and the northeast here where I am. Apartments rule making up fifty six percent of housing for current renters. These numbers aren't shocking. The Northeast where I am his amore densely populated area so it makes sense that renters find themselves more often in multifamily housing units. Well the West includes lots of rural land outside major metropolitan areas like Los Angeles that makes standalone houses more affordable. The lower cost of living in the south has the same effect. So what social media do you have your pictures on the pictures of your move on or do you have pictures of your move on any social media platforms? I love facebook and I have my pictures on facebook all the time of everything I do but where do you have yours? Where are Americans most likely to share pictures of their moving day adventures? Well it's facebook my favorite but the number two and three positions are interesting. People in the northeast are slightly more likely than everyone else to post on instagram. Western renters are the most likely to not be on social media at all. Mid Westerners are the most likely to be posting on twitter. Have you moved recently? Well it's a great great excuse to do some spring cleaning it really is and I will tell you about two weeks or so before I moved. This time I did a could will run with twelve bags of clothes. That feels so good to get rid of all of the stuff that you thought that you wanted and you needed. But you really discovered that you didn't have you moved into a new neighborhood. Well I did last week and I will tell you something you are never prepared for. This is something that you really have to think about and so was last week. I thought I was ready. I thought I was all prepared. And then I found out that I just wasn't the moving van came and I had just woken up and it was just well. Chaos utter chaos. I would say and of course like I've always had every move. I have more things than I thought I had. And it was a crazy crazy time trying to get everything coordinated but finally finally I did and that felt so good do now let me pose you a question here. Let me ask you. Do you consider the day that you move to be harder than the day after the day that you leave your old apartment and move stuff into your new apartment. Put the day after is just as hard for some. It is hard because that's when the work begins. That's when the unpacking boxes and the putting up of clothes and items really take hold and you have to be prepared for that so I would suggest unlike what I did. Get your rest and get set to move because it is going to be a long day.
11 Trivia Questions on Back to the Future
"What are we doing today? She goes. What do you think we're doing? We're going to be in the house just hanging out coming up with projects for the kids watching stuff on TV and walking from room to room looking around walking out of that room. Go into the next room she goes. We're we're doing that. It's the that's the whole thing so I hope you are finding ways to switch up your routine because I need to get out of. The House is Weird in California. Because it's very cloudy and kind of colder and It was nice for a couple of days. I did some hikes. That was cool. I felt like everything was normal to degree But when it gets kind of cold and dreary it's it's really hard to get motivated to do stuff I keep talking about this Trivia Book that I WanNa right and I should have the thing done by now I only have about. I think eleven or twelve stories out of about fifty stories that I wanNa tell in this book written down and I could easily if I just focused on it. Get the entire thing done which I wanted to do over like the next nine months. I could do it in one month so I really need to jump start myself and right the rest of this book if you're interested in what it's about it's going to be kind of a trivia memoir where I talk about hosting Trivia very interesting scenarios and then I tell a story and Then there's a little quiz based on stuff that happened in the story afterwards so for example one time. I met Harrison Ford Trivia Party. I tell that story and then I have a quiz on Harrison Ford related stuff and then some Harrison Ford inspired trivia team names in different things like that so it's kind of like a travel book. It'd be a bookie by it like an airport and be like. Oh this'll be cool for the plane ride. I could do some trivia. I read some stories from this guy. And hopefully it's a ton of fun and I tell some shark NATO stories in there Some different celebrity encounters. I'm trying to break up the book into different sections. So it's like celebrity encounters a family type stories like growing up family based Trivia Steph Different travelling to different cities so like Tennessee Chattanooga Related Trivia so. I tell a story about doing this show there and then go into Trivia about it etc etc. But I think it'll be cool. It'll be about ten sections of probably five stories on each section each and there should be at least five hundred. Trivia questions in there for you guys to play along with two and hopefully this is pretty cool little calling card for me to give people as an e book or to sign copies of a physical book and get out there and do a little. Bit Of Book Touring. So that'll be something for two thousand. Twenty one. Hopefully hopefully the world is put back together by that and I can make that happen but if you're interested in the progress of that I might launch a website pretty soon for all things related to the book. I have no idea what the title of this thing's going to be but I think it will be a fun little project so be on lookout for that and be on the lookout for eleven questions on back to the future which are going to start right.

Food, Dubious Food
"In twenty eleven in Alabama law firm sued fast food chain Taco Bell for dishonest business practices claiming that Taco Bell's seasoned filling couldn't be called beef under USDA standards because they had it tested and it was only thirty five percent beef. The rest was oats and other fillers Taco bell pulled out all the stops to refute the allegation at a cost of more than three million dollars including parody of Saturday morning superhero cartoon show that they had already for reasons super delicious ingredients force fighting. Baron VAUGHN bland. My Name's Moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Researching conspiracy theories and urban legends. Always gets a little wild like. Did you know that people are die hard? Tim Hortons fans because the Canadian version of Dunkin donuts spikes their coffee with highly addictive nicotine. Of course they don't but that doesn't stop people from believing. It will be skipping over. Stories like the fingertip and Wendy's Chili. That was a failed extortion attempt or the mouse in the mountain dew which PepsiCo defended themselves against by proving that the mouse would have dissolved. Let's start with the biggest name and fast food. The Mac Daddy if you will. Mcdonald's easily holds the records for the most urban legends and conspiracy yarns spun around a restaurant. The topic has its own wikipedia. Page and these. Well predate the unduplicated experiment. That was Morgan. Spurlock super size me listeners. Of a certain demographic may remember the Jimbo. You deserve a break today reaching them about the same time as the rumor that McDonald's stretched their hamburger meat out with Nice. Cheap ground up worms. If you've been online for more than a few minutes. In the past decade he will have seen a picture of a factory machine extracting fat tube of Pink Mush or pink slime as the caption frames. It say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It's all fast food. Chicken is made from things like chicken. Nuggets patties also. The process frozen chicken in the stores is made from it. Basically the entire chicken is smashed and pressed recieve bones is guts. All it comes out looking like this and there's more because it's crawling with bacteria it'll be washed ammonia soaked in it actually then because it tastes gross. It'll be re flavored artificially then because it's weirdly pink it'll be died with artificial color but hey at least it tastes good right. There are little bits they are that are nearly true mechanically separated meat is a staple ingredient in ready made frozen and fast foods but it's made from meat cuts not whole carcasses while beef producers commonly treat meat products with small amounts of ammonium side as an anti microbial agent and assessing in a high volume facility meat and poultry processors. Don't soak the meat in ammonia. They treat it with the gas apart from the included items being wrong. There are a lot of things that are missing. Like the fact that McDonald's stopped using mechanically separated chicken in two thousand and three mechanically separated. Beef was banned in two thousand four due to concerns about Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy Aka mad cow disease and the pink. Slime in the picture is probably what one beef industry magazine writer called. Ammonium treated lean beef trimmings not even chicken at all another glaring omission in the claim. There is nothing in the picture to identify that as a McDonald's facility. Mcdonald's went on the defensive showing how nuggets were actually made and that the mushed up chicken while not especially pleasing to the eye at no point looks like pink. Slime washed down those nuggets with a milkshake. Well there's no milk in that milkshake. There's no dairy of any kind. That's why the menu says shakes and not milkshakes. At least that's the rumor. What are they used instead to make it so creamy pureed cow eyeballs or maybe a little microscopic styrofoam balls for filler or lard or potatoes or seaweed or ground up feathers there are strict definitions food labelling and while. Mcdonald's shakes can't be labeled milkshakes in some areas because they don't contain straight up milk they do contain milk via the soft serve ice cream that's used to make them and they don't contain any of the other things save one. Their ice cream is made from milk. Sugar cream of Corn Syrup and various common preservatives and thinners McDonald's self-serve does contain one item from the Urban Legend List Seaweed specifically encourage Heenan. A safe natural common ingredient bonus. Fact if your food or drink is pink or red in color. Check The label for coaching. Neil a type of beetle whose ground up bodies have been used as a food color for centuries. I'm not suggesting to avoid it unless you're trying to keep kosher. I just think it's interesting. It's probably only listed as natural color. Anyway say you bought more food than you're able to eat in one sitting and you left the rest on the counter for a few weeks. Hey we all get busy. Thanks to all the artificial ingredients in manmade chemicals in boldface defiance of the natural order of things that McDonald's food won't rot. Lots of people have made videos showing the food remaining virtually unchanged after days and even weeks. This is a little bit true but mostly false in case any specify that and not for the reasons you think according to Dr Keith Warner Program Director at the University of Gulf's Department of Food Science and Quality Assurance essentially the microbes. That cause rotting are a lot like ourselves in that they need water nutrients warmth and timed grow. If we take one or more of those elements away then. Microbes cannot grow and spoil food in the example of the McDonald's hamburger. The patty loses water in the form of steam during cooking the BUN is made out of bread and toasting it reduces the amount of moisture this means that after preparation hamburger is fairly dry. When left out open in a room? There's further water loss as the humidity within most buildings is around forty percent so in the absence of moisture or high humidity. The Burger simply dries out rather than rots so no moisture no rot. It's the inverse of the reason. Why the bathroom is the only room in your house where you're locked in an eternal struggle with microbes like mold and mildew speaking of moisture. Who could use a tasty beverage right about now? How about a new COQ? Don't know what I'm talking about. That means one of two things. You're under the age of thirty or the most devious and ingenious marketing effort of all time succeeded or failed either way. The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Set would want you to know. That coke created new coq to cover the switch from sugar to corn Syrup to mask the removal of the last remaining coca derivatives or because people would hate it and demand more of what had been renamed co Classic. Take your pick. Pepsi had an effective ad campaign with the Pepsi. Challenge a blind taste test where lifelong coke fans found out they actually preferred the taste of Pepsi. Coke replicated the challenge in private and found the same thing. So in nineteen eighty-five they reformulated coke to be sweeter and put it out as new coq hip trendy with it and now including TV spots with the supposedly CGI. Max Headroom. You can hear more about in episode ninety six. Do not adjust your set. People hated new COQ. The heated the very idea of coping changed. There were letter writing campaigns thousands of calls a day and people. Hoarding original coke. Were boycotting the brand altogether independent bottlers even sued Coca Cola for lost revenue. It was all over the news all the late night talk shows. You couldn't buy that much publicity for. Could you? People began to speculate that. Coca-cola had launched new coq knowing that people would hate it that it would make people want to buy original coke and that everyone would be talking about it. They created it to fail. This isn't as far fetched a notion as you might think a decade or so later when Pepsi Launched Crystal Pepsi. Can you hear that Van Hagar Song Coke Launch? Crystal Tab? Tab was the first Diet Soda and even though Crystal Pepsi wasn't Diet People inflated the two and Crystal Pepsi went out faster than Jenkins and plastic choker necklaces as for the new coq debacle being a deliberate marketing ploy then company president. Donald Cove said some. Cynics will say that we planned the whole thing. The truth is we're not that dumb and we're not that Smart

"Is it better to look honest or to actually be honest? That sounds like a trick question right. Of course it's probably best to just be honest as you seem but scientists. It's not that simple. According to New Research published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology General. Sometimes people lie to look honest if the truth sounds too good to be true. This motivation kind of makes sense. I mean no one wants to be untrustworthy. And most people care about their reputation and how other people see them. So like imagine you're paid by the hour for a project that your client thinks should take between six and eight hours to finish you time it out and it ends up taking you exactly eight hours to charge the client for the whole eight hours that you worked or do you under report your time because it might look suspicious not to. That's the gist of this new research. We can predict. It'll make people jealous or suspicious and we sometimes lie to prevent that reaction. We might rationalize that. It's just simpler for everyone. The study found. This is especially likely to happen. When people have a really lucky moments the for example in one study the researchers had participants played dice rolling and Coin Flipping Games in private afterwards. They had to report their scores to a researcher to get their winnings. But the game was rigged and some of the participants got perfect scores across the board but when it came time to report their winnings twenty four percent of the people who got perfect scores lied about it even though it costs them money. They didn't want to seem like they adjusted. The researchers found the same result in a number of similar scenarios lake workers being compensated for miles driven and lawyers billing clients for hours worked. They aren't sure if the findings will translate to the real world in every case but they do think this new type of lying probably shows up in many ways in daily life. I guess it's natural. We want to see him honest so badly that will lie for it. Have you done this? I've definitely done this like plenty of times. Yeah Yeah like when you're like professional saxophonist and I got my degree from a really established graduate school and around the Boston Marathon and host an award winning science podcast and a run up science website and I worked for discovery. Yes I lie about a lot of those things that have a cool cat. I mean the kind of doesn't stop with you. And I have a redwood tree in my front yard where I grew up. I don't know why you would possibly lie about any hat. I will at least leave it out if people ask me point blank all usually be truthful but sometimes sometimes I don't sometimes I just fudge the truth a little bit because we want to. I don't want people. I want people to like me. You WanNa seem like a human being like kind of regular like we get terrible reviews. Everybody's GonNa hate me. Your faces the same shade as your shirt right now. So Red Red Shirt. That has the curiosity rover on it. That says stay curious Proud of it. I mean no. I'm not tensor question. No some of US don't have it that good.

The Benefits of Napping Without Actually Falling Asleep
"I have a free minute for a quick nap I take it but sometimes I end up awake with my eyes closed thinking about the nap time. I'm wasting by not being able to sleep if I don't fall asleep at all. It feels like I failed if this sounds familiar to you. I've got good news. New Research says we shouldn't get too stressed about actually sleeping during that nap what scientists call quiet wakefulness is good too. Quiet wakefulness is probably something. You already do. It's resting with your eyes closed. It might not feel like you're doing much when you rest your eyes but the benefits of quiet. Wakefulness are actually pretty huge. The National Sleep Foundation says quiet wakefulness can give the brain and body a break. It can also reduce stress and boost your mood alertness. Creativity mental clarity and motivation scientists. Say That just knowing the quiet wakefulness works is enough to make you feel refreshed after all feeling like asleep. Failure is stressful. And stresses just the opposite of what you want out of a nap knowing that you won't ruin everything by just resting your eyes means your body will actually have time to rest and recover and according to some studies quiet. Wakefulness is even better for productivity and alertness than NAP CZAR. After waking up from an afternoon nap you're liable to experience. Sleep inertia. That's that groggy feeling. That makes it hard to think clearly when you go back to work but quiet. Wakefulness doesn't require any recovery. Time even cooler researchers say the brain activity they see in people practicing quiet. Wakefulness is actually pretty similar. To what you'd see during a nap in other words you get the same effect with less recovery. Time
How Animals Get Color Without Pigment
"There's more than one way to make it color when humans one address. Something up with a splash of colour. We almost always rely on. Paints dyes or some other form of payments nature uses pigments too but after a few billion years of trial and error it also has another trick up its sleeve. It's called structural color. And it gets it's not from chemical properties but from physical shape so like. Have you ever wondered why humming birds have such vibrant colors? I mean they're not just bright they are iridescent. But if you took a hummingbird feather and grounded up into powder you wouldn't get that beautiful hugh that's because their color comes from the physical structure of the feathers specifically incredibly small pancake shaped structures. The colors we see are the result of light physically interacting with those stacks of Nanno skill flap. Jacks scientists have known for centuries that tiny structures? Were probably responsible for the IRIDESCENT Shimmer of peacock feathers and butterfly wings. And it's become clear over the last couple of decades that colorful micro and Nano scale structures give colored to living things across the natural world in everything from insects to fish to plants. Sort of backup. Pigments get their color because their molecules absorb certain wavelengths of light and reflect others structural colors on the other hand come from the physical properties of the material itself so in nature. These are usually something like cellulose. Collagen Keaton and Carrington. But if you look closely enough at the carapace of a beetle or at the berry like fruit of the herb paalea Camden Sada. Then you'll see a complex micro structure far more advanced than anything. Human engineers have ever designed. Take that herb polycondensation and it's metallic blue berries. While naturally occurring pigments tend to FADE OVER TIME. There are forty year old specimens of these berries. That haven't begun to fade but try to extract blue pigment from the fruit. And you'll get nothing. That's because the metallic blue comes from the wafer. Thin strands of cellulose are arranged in the berries. Cell walls the tiny threads are stacked in zillions of Helix Shapes and in arrangement that allows blue light to be reflected why Elat of other wavelengths passes through scientists are studying structural colors in nature to try to make some themselves in a field called synthetic photonics. In fact this field has given rise to technology. You probably know pretty well like Blu Ray but nature did it
