Welcome to brain stuff, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren bogle bomb here, with a classic episode of the podcast. A giant squid are legendary, and it's easy to understand why such beautifully unhuman, sort of eldritch creatures have inspired so many stories. But could a giant squid really take down a ship or submarine? Hey, brain stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here. About 300 different species of squid have been swimming in the world's oceans for more than 400 million years. There are three species that grow to massive proportions. The giant, the colossal and the jumbo, also known as the Humboldt squid. While many squid are just a few inches long, giant and colossal squid are enormous. These two types are estimated to reach from 35 to 60 feet in length. That's about ten to 18 meters, including their body and tentacles. That's larger than a full length school bus. And they can weigh up to a thousand pounds or about 450 kilograms. They're protruding eyes are the size of volleyballs. Humboldt squid are the smallest of the three only about 6 feet that's two meters long, and a hundred pounds or 45 kilograms. But how did these marine animals get so big? The most common explanation is a phenomenon called deep sea gigantism. The theory suggests that over time, small, shallow water creatures evolved to live at vast deep sea levels by getting bigger, likely due to a combination of food supply and the increased size of the predators at great depths. In shallow waters, it's advantageous to stay small because there's limited food. But at the extreme depths where massive squid are thought to live, between about 650 and 2600 feet, that's about 200 to 700 meters below the surface, bigger creatures have size and endurance on their side when traveling longer distances in search of food. When you're a small fish in a large pond, you're a snack, but if you're the big fish, you have your choice of snacks. But is the whole ocean their buffet, including human ships and submarines. Sea creatures feature prominently in seafarer tales around the world, dating back to ancient times. In Greek and Roman mythology, there's tales of great battles between man and marine monsters capable of pulling ships underwater. 12th century Norwegian sailors told stories of sea creatures they'd seen. By the 18th century, the creatures of Norwegian legend had grown to the likes of islands with arms. It's thought that giant colossal and Humboldt squid are aggressive, opportunistic creatures that prey on anything that comes their way, from easy meals of fish and shrimp to a more sporting hunt of other large cephalopods and whales. The Humboldt specifically are known to be fierce cannibalistic fighters. Mexican fishermen have nicknamed them diablos or Red Devils because of their bodies red color and their hostile nature. And a squid of colossal dimensions featured in Jules Verne's 1869 novel 20,000 leagues under the sea, said to be a fictionalized account of a real encounter between a French navy ship and a giant squid. Whether the original account is entirely fictional or not, the novel peaked the public's interest in deep sea gigantism and marine attacks, and certainly isn't the only account of squid attacking ships. In the 1930s, the Brunswick, the royal Norwegian navy's 15,000 ton tanker, was attacked three separate times by different giant squid. Each account tells of a squid pursuing the tanker and striking it suddenly, tentacles wrapped around the hull. Fortunately for the sailors, yet unfortunately for the squid, the steel of the ship proved either too slick or too hard for the tentacles to grapple and pierce. Each squid that tried to land the Brunswick ended up perishing after sliding into the tankers propellers. As recently as 2003, a giant squid attempted to take down a boat. This time a French yacht sailing, ironically, in the Jules Verne trophy, a prize for the fastest global circumnavigation by a yacht. Luckily, the 26 foot long, that's about 8 meters squid, gave up before its demise, or that of the boat. Some scientists are skeptical that squid are dangerous to humans or watercraft, suggesting that there are species with a fish based diet, and therefore have no need to attack humans or the steel of a ship. But whether they're actively pursuing our vessels or not, no gigantic squid has yet taken down a modern ship. But it hasn't been for the lack of trying. Today's episode is based on the article could a squid take down a submarine on how stuff works dot com written by Maria from markie.

Welcome to brain stuff, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey brain stuff, Lauren bogle bomb here with another classic from our archives. If you're anything like me, you went through a phase, or are still in a phase, where you've been fascinated by the idea that you've got to skeleton living inside you all the time. So, in this episode, we talked about how our bones grow. Hey, brain stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here. We all know that you are what you eat. But how exactly do the things that you eat get turned into pieces of you? I'm thinking of bones in particular here. The foods we humans consume are soft, especially compared to other animals diets. But from them, our bodies build strong, hard materials, like fingernails, tooth enamel, and bones. So how do we do it? How do we soft fleshy humans turn soft fleshy food into bones? Let's start off by zooming in all the way down to the cellular level. Your body builds bone tissue with the help of specialized cells called osteoblasts. Osteoblasts work together, forming a tight fit layer over areas where bone needs to grow or be repaired. These cells secrete a particular combination of amino acids, primarily glycine and proline. These amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Not unlike voltron, they fold up with each other into something more than the sum of their parts. Though in this case, it's not a space faring super robot, but strong, triple helix threads of protein. Your cells get these amino acids from the foods that you eat. Meat fish dairy and legumes contain both glycine and proline, and you can also get proline from stuff like gelatin and cabbage. Once your osteoblasts secrete the immuno acids and they come together to form the protein threads, enzymes give those threads a stabilizing Polish. Vitamin C helps those enzymes work. Without it, the threads can't come together to form bone tissue correctly. And that's what happens in scurvy, and it's one of the reasons why you should eat some fruit sometimes. Cantaloupe, citrus, kiwi, mango, and berries are all good sources. The thus stabilized threads are molecules of what's called collagen, which is the most abundant protein in the animal kingdom. Collagen molecules pack together into long, thin fibers called fibrils. In their many types, fibrils create these scaffolding that bodily tissues are built upon from your corneas to your blood vessels to your skin. They're sturdy and kind of flexible, like steel beams and architecture. They're also relatively lightweight. Adult human bones are about 10% collagen by mass. But if your bones were collagen fibrils alone, you'd be sentient silly putty. So to add further support, your osteoblasts guide deposits of a strengthening layer of mineral crystals along the fibrils, like pouring concrete over steel beams. The mineral in question here is the compound calcium phosphate. Calcium and phosphate bond in your system after you consume foods that contain them. For calcium that's dairy and soy products, eggs, shrimp, and dark leafy greens. For phosphate, it's dairy, whole wheat nuts, and legumes. And this, along with dairy's amino acid content, is why milk and fortified food ads talk about how these products help build strong bones, though, of course, all the other foods we've mentioned do too. This mineral coating is just a few atoms thick, but it gives bones their stiff structure, and it accounts for about 65% of adults bone mass. Finally, the coated fibrils get gummed together with a sort of shock absorbing glue, made up of spiraled collagen molecules that can uncoil when stress is applied, and then snap back into shape. This helps prevent fractures at a molecular level, like if you connected your steel reinforced concrete beams with springs. Your skeleton also contains small amounts of magnesium, sodium, and bicarbonate. Plus, a bunch of water, like 25% by mass. So how does your body get a hold of all of these substances? Well, your digestive system is a fancy molecular blaster. When you eat your teeth, gastrointestinal muscles and digestive juices break food down to the point that its molecules are ready to be harvested. Your gut bacteria help too. There are some molecules that our cells can't process by themselves. Our gut bacteria eat those molecules and poop out compounds that our cells can process. The cells in the walls of your small intestine pass everything that they can into your bloodstream to be carried on to make your cells like your osteoblasts.

And he doesn't know it but he has suspicions of it but the emperor of all of the planets is like fuck this guy. He's getting too much power and he's to fucking smooth and i know he would do a better job. That'd be as emperor. So i'm gonna fucking get rid of him and that's the whole part of dude. Is that like that. Uh in place. I assume that everything contracts but it was never laid out like what you just said. Yeah got it funny. Because i enjoyed everything but they never like. They like didn't say that. Just say just like that. They say like they go into that planet of warriors and they get those like the warrior guys. And they're like oh. This is the emperor's personal secret army that he has we're going to borrow them and it was because the emperor and emperor which was a little confusing apper sent him there so we were. I was a little confused aflac. What and you'll see the emperor ever so like you use just like this fieger behind the scenes kind of war later. You should definitely see him in the next one. yes yes. But yeah oscar isaac i. It's funny because i was. I was also talking to lexi about oscar isaac and the it's so funny because that that role that fatherly kingly role also with the mom with rebecca i and we'll also talk about a just now as i'm talking about this context of parents.

That's all she did but he say she's going to be heavily in the second when the movie when when the movie was first announced i was like okay cool. Here's what's going to happen right. What they're gonna do is they're going to have the whole movie. Be setting up for the attack than the movies going to end. On the end of the attack they survive and then they make it to the freemen and you see them meeting the freemen knowing that they're gonna be okay but there's maybe something that's going to happen. Are they engaged. Are they safe. The movie ends then. Part two is going to be the rest of the book. That's what i thought was going to have. It was where he decides but it wasn't because what ended up happening is all that pre attack stuff kinda got cut out if from the book. At least like there is a lot more setup. There was a like you meet the emperor. You have these conversations you get to see a lot more of the political side of it you get to see a lot of those conversations and you get to know a lot more about duke lido about lady jessica. Their relationship that jesuit so all of that got cut from the movie or done in like a really fast forward version. That still worked. I think for everyone else. But it was kind of a shame.

"I see this loss is actually being worse for everybody that's got to face them. And I don't think that bodes well for George. Now, I'm not saying George is not great. And I don't understand all the Georgia fans calling in saying they don't get enough respect. Hell, they ranked number one. But I think they have an inferiority complex about themselves. What do you think? I agree with your first point. I think Georgia would have been better as number two playing Alabama as number one. I think flipping that is going to add additional pressure. Hey, thanks for the call. Appreciate it. Legend is next. Wake up, baby. Wake up, Paul. Everyone wake up. Wake up, wake up. Just got off the phone with a couple sources down at practice. Let's hear it. That this has been the most intense practice, most intense focus of the season the giant has woke up, Paul. They have pissed, Saban's 5th. Nomination is this when you piss off a sleep and giant, you got a problem brother. Anybody wants to count the keynote county mouth. But you better be careful, because when that child wakes up, we're gonna beat somebody's ass. Hey, Paul, any Aflac problem. If those sex problems, the problem, these idiots, you know, I say, freedom of speech is a wonderful thing, Paul, because without freedom of speech, we wouldn't know who to idiots are. I mean, people come on here, criticize and say even. Are you freaking kidding me saving is a God in Alabama, brother. We were shipping an Alabama. Nick Saban could lose 5 games. He can lose 6 games. We don't freaking care. That's the OCR D.C.'s fault. You are familiar with in the Bible about worshiping false gods. Well, next slide, and I had a false guy. I got a lot, but I got a lot of shots that I remember directly on which way to go, brother. I will tell you, so I love that man. He ain't no God. But he's not about, but. For the rest of us, is it never his fault, but it's the coordinator's fault. Because when you've got 7 Maddie's brother, when you got more range than you've got fingers, you are never in question. Paul find bomb could have a frigging bad call, DOM could have a freaking he's still freaking out and he's still the mouth. So I don't want to hear this pool crap that is Nick Saban's vote. It's not Nick Saban's fault. Nick said that success has let him do a place where he's had to get coordinator after coordinator. And, you know, we got a couple bad ones right now. But I would say a big savings fall. I'd say it was a success while more than it was next segment and Paula heard you say Georgia. Anybody that knows football knows that George is not gonna choke the natty away this year. You know the fact that statement all the way up brother back it up, Paul. Back it up. Because I am counting on Georgia, choking. I mean, let me ask you this. It's a bills when the Super Bowl. And George and wins the natty. What hell frees over Paul? And may yeah. And what about for free again choking? Choking. That's what George does. It's not a matter if they have the best team. They're known for choking. And that's what I'm counting on again. They're going to choke. You're a choke artist, Georgia. You're old yeller to me. You don't care so clear in the mirror, Alabama. And AMA, you reach so mountain top. Congratulations. Maybe we need to get a gumbo statue. Turn it in the gumbo field. Can't tell. You reach the mountain top. Congratulations. So for example, wake up a nation, this giant is a woke. You go find out cowbells, so we could say that cowbell and beat the hell out of pirate with it. Legend.

"To notable had one of the better offensive coordinators. Tony elliott who should have been getting a head coaching job years ago but because of the color of skin and other things prevented him from doing that or getting a real opportunity for him to do that. So all of these things that were happening and only things that we were watching me included kind of made blind to the fact that you know. We really didn't put enough stock into wait a minute. This is the second year row. Where clemson who was supposed to be this unbelievable fantastic team. Just got their asses warped i by lsu and by ohio state. No thinking didn't even win the championship last year. They've got their butts kicked by alabama. So somehow someway. We should have. Kind of seen this coming to fruition for clinton for twenty twenty one now where we expecting them to be so offensively inept in the showings against clumped against georgia and georgia tech and nc state. No no one saw that. But it's it's it's surprisingly the word i'm looking for here. What the what. The work of. I put in here when describing what's been happening so far for games to the season with clemson it's surprisingly We should have seen this coming. Maybe not to this degree but we shouldn't be shocked that there too and to really have a strong possibility of being one three and with everything said and done they still have a chance to win the Ac gotta remember the one in one in the conference. So who knows. May the talent there the coaching at their experiences there in terms of the determining around but we'll see we'll see what happens. I'm not going to make any like you know. Bold proclamation in terms of the clemson dynasty is over. I mean you can't wanna championship every year. Even nick sabin has suffered in the past. Seventy seasons suffered two losses in the season. I think one year even have three even though that might have been when he first took over the job in the infancy of him building the dynasty which is now the alabama football team under mr aflac himself so Surprising that clemson has gone to the depths of where they the season being mediocre. But when everything is all said and done we shouldn't be hugely surprise to and to maybe but not the same level that they'd been for the last couple of years definitely not right on down to the pit cooked another. This is a excuse. Junkie was white white has been a anyway base. Almost even poku have none of that..

I know. I'm saying as if you're not if you're fight like sutton is irrelevant to this group. Like she doesn't set the tone. It felt like if you're not in you're not in with anyone on the fringe new.

Of course thank you. I really really appreciated all the women were like you know. She's going through a hard time with housing. Crystals like moving out of the house. Moving like your mansion to another mansion is not a reason to act crazy and i totally agree with that. I think that whatever for whatever reason sutton was acting weird for the whole day and next day she is knowledge that she was acting weird but she was like looking for a reason for it. And i don't think it's moving houses i really don't know but i mean we don't really know a lot of sentence back story. I think because her ex husband doesn't let her talk about it so i would imagine that in moving her house it has to do with her divorce and i don't know we don't even know she has kids like what does that mean for her actual. I think it's more than the house. And just like a life that she wants had like any time. One of the women is going through divorce and moving and downsizing or whatever it is they're shannon madore syndrome like you think she's downsizing i think that money thing no.

How long will the COVID-19 vaccine work?
"I see you have studied about the likelihood of covert reinfection. Had something that really is not a lot of people's minds. How long does the vaccine work? There's some reports this week that it only is good for three or four months. What say you? Well, this is something we need to study. And we don't know the exact answer of what you just mentioned. How long the vaccines gonna be effective. Whether we're gonna need boosters or not. Which of the various vaccines made by various different mechanisms will be the most effective with the longest oration. All of these don't get upset. Don't get upset because we don't know the answers to these questions yet because this is a new disease, and it's being studied the people who were in the original Studies toe actually verify that the Mo Derna and the Fizer study the originally approved vaccines were safe and effective. They're still being studied the people in the jobs and Johnson they, too, are being studied. So we're learning how long the effectiveness of these vaccines will be. Hopefully, there'll be a long, long time. But if we need a booster heck, here's my arm. I'm ready. But we just don't know the answer. What I think you were referring to is if you have the disease, Um and you get ill. What's your likelihood of getting it again? And it seems like when you're younger, the re infection rate is low. But if you're elderly, you know we're talking about 70 year higher you're at increased risk, and you just have to take all that much more protection. Was in this disease, everything else everything happens to the elderly. Worse. So now we learned this week. Your risk of getting reinfected. Not only is higher as is your risk of getting severe covert 19 because that is what it's all about. It's preventing the severe form. Wanted kills one to get you into the hospital. And if I may let me just add if you haven't heard already. Whatever the vaccine, all three that have been approved in America all prevent Getting into the hospital and they prevent death. And so forget all the other numbers and ratios. He here because that is what is so important. That's the key ingredient. All this is Preventing hospitalization and death and all three vaccines do And please think really carefully about getting vaccine. The only person who I think should think a little more more about it is the one who's had any Beneful Actiq reaction in the past. And if you had an awful access in the past, just have a friendly visit with your allergist that you can do this scene and by Bye Bye bye, Telehealth. You don't even need to go in making appointment. Ah, consultation and just discuss it with the allergist to see if there's any pre medication that you might need. They're the real experts in this and they can get you ready for this. But the and AFLAC quick reaction for the vaccines has been lower than Most other vaccines, and the safety profile looks remarkably good.

U.S. plans massive coronavirus vaccine testing effort to meet year-end deadline
"Tastes have been on the hunt for something that could shut this virus down and give us our lives back. A vaccine. A few months ago, there was a lot of excitement. As the very first clinical trials for the coronavirus began, it was in time. The search for coronavirus vaccine has become one of the fastest moving in history. That scenes usually take years not months to produce. This is happening warp speed. Never before hundreds of scientists are over the world and focused on the same thing at the same time creating a vaccine for covid nineteen. And more and more vaccine candidates are entering the fray. Were at the point, where around a dozen clinical trials are on the go. Hundreds of people volunteered for jab in the arm to test old kinds of different vaccines. As part of this scientists are taking some be gambles. The vaccine were looking at is incredibly modern type vaccine. It's not the traditional way building a vaccine, so we're going as fast as humanly possible. Many of them are not traditionally vaccine companies. They are using novel ideas from oncology things. They've learned treating cancer. It's never been used in a vaccine before. And if one of these gambles payoff, it could be huge, we could get a vaccine soon. The US government says that the goal is to get a vaccine to Americans by January twenty twenty one. They're calling this nation warp speed. And if it could be done, this would be unprecedented. So could we really be celebrating twenty one with Champagne and shot in the arm to fight the coronavirus? And? What would it take to make that happen? That's Today on the show. Because when it comes to getting a vaccine, it feels like this is happening at warp speed, but then there's. Science. Scientist is when on Earth Are we getting? This vaccine is coming up to stop to the break. This episode of science versus is sponsored by Phillips Sonacare the electric toothbrush that combines decades of science and engineering to master the art of brushing with sixty two thousand brushstrokes minute you've got a month's worth of brushing in just two minutes for better checkups, guaranteed or your money back visit Phillips. Dot Com slash sonacare. This episode of science versus is brought to you by AFLAC. That lovable duct does more than just say. AFLAC access a safety net when the unexpected happens by helping with the expenses. That health insurance doesn't cover. Get to know them at half dot com. Welcome back. So back in January. We had from people like Anthony Fauci that we could get a vaccine in twelve to eighteen months. That could mean early next year. And in the land of vaccines, these would be record breaking. It often takes something like ten years for a vaccine to from the lab to the doctor's office. So can we really do it? Get Out of this pandemic by January, before Santa even catches these brands. Well to get them labs. All around the world s around experimenting with different kinds of vaccines. But they all have the same goal to train our immune system to recognize and killed this coronavirus. And to do that, many vaccine developers have homed in on one thing. Progress. And northwestern told us all about it. If you think about the picture that you've seen corona virus like everywhere, and it looks like a ball with little points coming out. Those points the spike. Spike protein you know it, I, know it. It's the most famous spikes in Spike Lee and the most famous protein since. College Eddie right. This spike is so important because it's a major thing that tells our body weight this virus. It doesn't belong here. That actually is what argue system fees most readily. It sees the spike. After our meeting system sees the spike. It lends to recognize quickly. Respond to it by creating things like antibodies to fight it, and then some of those antibodies hang around so that if the virus shows up, then the virus will just be cleared away by our immune system. So that the next time we see that disease, we don't get sick in the first place, so if you making Exane, how do you get your immune system to quickly recognized this spike? Well, one way is that scientists can take rhinovirus and then make less dangerous. Say They Kill the virus most comedy vaccines are made by growing up the virus. And inactivating that virus sometimes with the chemical, sometimes the heat, and then that is then injected. An otherwise scientists can do this version of the virus. That's too weak to make you sick. And this is how we make a lot of vaccines familiar with things like the measles and chickenpox and flu vaccines. It's tried and tested. We know it can work and some companies are going this way to try to make Alka, rhinovirus vaccine. But other groups at. This meat and potatoes vaccine method they using new attack more experimental ways of building vaccine. And these experimental methods getting a ton of attention and funding right now, because governments and big. Pharma hoping they'll deliver the goods pasta. So for they use instead of giving you a whole coronavirus, these vaccines, basically using genetic material from the coronavirus, and then they're plopping that into your body. And scientists have chosen a very particular piece of genetic material spike. It's the recipe for the spike, protein. And this can come in a couple of forms. One is called. Our body will see that as a normal M Arnie and just translate into a pro team. Wow, so this. If this vaccine works, it would encourage your body to make little corona virus proteins. Yes that's that's the idea. Wow, that seems so futuristic. As as is, that's really cool right, so you're getting the body degenerate that protein for you yet, so these spike proteins that your body has made will then be floating around and the idea. Is that your immune system? We'll see it. Make antibodies send Ta. You'll have immunity. And many of the vaccines in this race, delivering this genetic material to us in different ways, so some shopping Marin into a ball of fat, so that your cells will slip up while other groups trying to smuggle in that code using get this a totally different virus one. That weren't hurt you. Is it fantasy that they've taken a different virus? And then they're like like Halloween the dressing at all like the corona virus, yes. Say. So this all sounds a little bunk is mad. The question is will it really work that is. Will these vaccines protectiveness if we get exposed to the coronavirus? Because if they don't. Like on a useless. My boss is to stay if it's just dishwater that you're not gonNA get anywhere. This is Katie Stevenson. She's a doctor working on vaccine development at Harvard and she says that one of the key ways will know if a vaccine is working is if it makes you produce antibodies. And she's looking for not just any antibodies. But neutralizing antibodies, what what is a neutralizing antibodies? So a neutralizing antibody is an antibody that binds to virus and neutralizes it. This is the dream right? Yeah, exactly right inches binds to the virus and prevent it from entering a cell. So the body sees that and just thrown in the garbage to this is what Katie is going to be looking for. In the results of all these clinical trials, and if she doesn't see these neutralizing antibodies, shelby thinking well, that was kind of done. And Katie says I dealing see a lot of these. So! What's a lot? Well you measure milk leases. Okay so I've measure milk. And you can measure antibodies titus. So one study, which looked at people who had been infected with this virus, and then recovered found the antibody. Titus tended to be at least one hundred. And when Katie's colleague vaccinated monkeys with an experimental vaccine, they found that having similar antibody Tom of one hundred protected them from getting infected. So while we're still learning a lot, he all I have been kind of looking for one one hundred. Okay, that's it's nice, poetic, great one hundred yeah! We have a handful of results that companies have released from different clinical trials, but just one paper that's published in a peer review gentle. It was from a Chinese local company who injected more than one hundred people with one of those new fandango vaccines and it was back in March. They tested three different doses. And Katie says they didn't get. This antibody tighter. Like at the highest dose averaged around Bootie for you know I was a little bit disappointed, so a little bit reserved I'm happy that it elicited an immune response because that's not a given. Sometimes, it's just zero zero zero but I would've liked to see something closer to like one hundred another company. Medina injected forty five people back in March with the vaccine, and they said that eight people had good levels of neutralizing antibodies. But they didn't tell us about the opposite in the trial. When we asked dinner about this, we didn't hear back to Katie is holding out for more info. Yeah, I just wanted to see the rest because it is immune. A- promising I'd put promising right on there. But I do not know which one of these is GonNa work if any, and that that is the actual fact truth so I try not to stray from that, and there are other FAC truths to nail down him. Even if these vaccines do make you produce produces, antibodies will still have to make absolutely short that you'll protected from the corona virus. If you do get exposed, and then if you protected, we'll have to work out how long four so you might need. More than one shot of the vaccine say a booster shot in a or so.

Kilmer Val Kilmer, Robert Pattinson And Warner Brothers discussed on Waddle & Silvy
"That. Couple Warner Brothers has confirmed that Robert Pattinson is the new Batman in the next, Batman franchise robber, Pat, Patterson giving light. Yes. Twilight fame, so you guys like that. I mean. No. I do we just is this, the thing where you just once the Batman franchise ends. You just pick it up with a new Batman and you go from there again readings like they're doing. Not even that it's just okay. We're going to redo the story now. And give you a new Batman. He just doesn't fit the Bruce, Wayne Batman like no stereotype. You know what I mean? Like I wanna see, like what's his name? He just did the no did it. But I'm saying new new guy. He just did. He just did pardon my take with big cat. It was in the van with and we were talking about Sean McVeigh. No, no. I know the I know the good looking guy. Yeah. The good looking guy Stephen Shammy, Steve Shammy. That's steve. Can you name the love can you name the actors joins company? It was about man. Michael keaton. Abed pledges then Aflac was Batman, Bill? Kilmer Val Kilmer was Batman. Yes. And the one. That's pretty much most of the modern ones. Yeah. Christian bale was awesome the night series. No doubt I absolutely love love, but you have to admit even though that was that was that, that three Zaka front. Thank you. Danny Lynch, fine, who Shemi still would be
Batman, Michael Keaton And Adam West discussed on Barsky Radio
"But do you think of patents patent as the new Batman? I saw this. I'm kind of down for it. What is that these economics, right? Yeah. Not your thing. I mean I, I like your right. Not my favorite, Robert Patterson. Who is in these twilight movies. Yes. Apparently, he's going to be the one that's going to be taking over from that. What's his name? Well, Ben Affleck in Africa. Yeah. Ben Affleck was the what happened someone went to bed African said, you just don't want to do this. They wanted a younger guy, I think. No, I think that that's part of it. He they wanted a younger guy and also he just wasn't working for them. You know it wasn't really been afflicted. He did it in two movies. The Justice league. It didn't work the first or second time you're out. They, they wanted to go younger than don't want. See you. Yeah. It really who wants that guy. Anyway. Then Aflac I mean he's a good actor to just, you know, sometimes you don't fit the role, right? And the thing is, if you don't fit the role, then you shouldn't get a second second shot at it didn't work. So then you're out. Let's see who do I like is the best Batman. Michael. Keaton was good. Christian bale was good. My favorite was, obviously, it wasn't the, the movie Batman, but the TV show, Adam. Adam west. Absolutely. I if I had to pick a live action when it's probably Michael Keaton for me. He's, he's my favorite. I like Batman and Batman because he was it wasn't. It wasn't the movie Batman. It wasn't a serious. It was very, very campy, if you watch the TV series Batman from the sixties, it was one of those shows that was made for a kids, but made for Delta's. Well, there were tongue in cheek secret double-entendres there were there were like a jokes or inside things that only would appeal to adults that would go over the kids heads. And let's face it. Adam west was actually pretty funny, even though he didn't mean to be the way he would deliver his lines. He was hilarious. So I don't think they try to capture that in the in the movies and the film. But and there were different directors to who is the Batman that had with a cod piece. So. What was that Clooney's? So it was the first Batman in terms of movies, anyway, was timber, and did two movies with Michael Keaton. Right. And then after that, I think there was a third movie that was with Val Kilmer, instead of Michael Keaton doing, like seven or eight Batman. Yes. And then after that George Clooney. I think two of them, Robin. Batman forever. And neither one of those is very good. Those are the ones that hit the nipples on the bat suit. That's Joel Schumacher. Batman. Yeah. They he succeeded. Was -cluded the gay Batman. Yeah, I think he definitely Clooney's come out and said he played him as a gay character. That's what he was written like to him. Schumacher. That's why that's why. And then and then I mentioned Christian bale. So Robert Pattinson. All right. Well, maybe I guess he'll do good. Yes. Seems like he's been he hasn't done a lot of big movies ever since the twilight one. So most people know him for that, but he's done a lot of good art house movies. Like smaller releases the not a lot of people get to see. And he's, he's a great actor, but he the brooding Batman, another Bruening Batman. So they got the dark
