"That is what I mean. We'll go with that. Point being, they're right next to each other. And when you think about all these inventions, this is all the second industrial revolution. Yeah, you've got Thomas Edison and the lightbulb. Exactly. You've got to put Alexander Graham bell in the telephone. Right. That guy with his lightbulb. The telephone, you know? Just all this stuff that kind of just starts popping up really quickly. Incredibly so. I mean, the world we inhabit in so many ways. It is all coming out of this turn of the century. That again gets freaking glossed over. And there were some inventors that happened. Just the creation of our modern economy inventions. Massive banking. Totally fine. To just kind of. Skim over it. Yeah, no big deal. All right, point being the dots I want to connect is just what it was like to be someone living through these sorts of changes. I mean, I imagine it's pretty similar to how we've kind of experienced that ourselves a little bit with the Internet and it's true. All of that. We're learning to do a technological revolution. Kind of exploded, right? And I imagine that it was fairly similar probably a little bit more so. Intense, though, for them because it was such a, like we were familiar with electricity and computers kind of, right? But no, I think you've got a fair comparison point. I mean, you know, you go from, you know, you go from your kerosene lamps, you get gas coming into the house, that's cool and exciting. And then you've got Edison and the boys. The boys at Menlo Park. They're Tapping into that infrastructure. They're running wire basically through that same pipe. Same pipes displacing gas. So you can't see these building on kind of components. Yeah. And of course, the direct electricity and then you get to alternating current and then it gets to where it flows pretty well. But the early years were rough, right? If you remember that I think it was the end of the first episode before we got to the war of the currents, I can't run the rough top of my head, but it's fine. It's been a little bit. It has been. But the end of the first Edison episode where he has to send one of his guys to JPMorgan's house because the banker, his office, has been burnt to a crisp by bad setup, but this generator in his basement.

So I was on the locker room podcast earlier today, and when I joined this podcast As trace just picks up the phone, and now it turns into a one dimensional program. So hang up on that person ever. You're talking to in just a second, you'll screen them in a moment, they'll wait. You know, at the first question I was asking a podcast today. In NFL podcast. I don't think they're an NFL pop. Okay, A room lock is a fried potato pancake. Was it a Jewish question? No, it was not a Jewish question, Hmm. I did not know what it was about Radio. Oh, how much you make? No. So I guess one of those awkward ones Like what? Your salary your business. Shut your mouth, one of my friends, By the way, they texted me the other day. They go. You know what Google says. Your net worth is. I go. What? He goes 1 to $4 million a year ago. Really nice I got must have missed Missed that meeting with my agent and with the company $94 million a year. Don't see that's good wide. Ranged. One million can be four million Could be five weeks. Executive 12 weeks is out. You're not wrong. Mhm. I would be okay with with either part of that range. It's not the case. The first question I was asked on this podcast today. And I'm always fine for funky question to start an interview, right? Is everyone like into it? He's the tension, which I don't think you need to do with me. I'm pretty much a gregarious human being. Have you ever been on the air and had to go to the bathroom? What do you do, huh? And I go. Well, I know how to go to the bathroom. I know how to hold it in. This is not third grade kindergarten pre K anymore, and If I have to. They were asking about not a number one clearly right there, asking about a number two. I go. Well, if I need to go take a number two while I'm on the air. It's very simple. I do so right before the update because the update adds an extra two minutes, the five minute break to make it seven But I was a little bit surprised. It was fine with it. It was it was pretty funny. And they and they asked me about what happens if you have taken number two when you're on the air, and has that ever happened. Podcasters, man, you know, because they can just stop and start whenever they want. They got to go during the podcast. I was gonna hit pause really quickly back in like 10 minutes, I I would leave if I was the guest. I'm not waiting around us. You do some reading in the bathroom and have to go to the bathroom. That's not happen. Interesting question. Very interesting. You ever ask any bizarre questions? Your guest when they join you on the Ryan Hickey show? No, I usually keep it very straight straight edge, And if I was to go kind of out of left field, I would not ask that question That's for damn sure I'd go a whole other I'd ask a lot more way more reader questions that I asked out. That question. That's I was not expecting. I thought you were gonna say Yeah, This is the question I was going to ask and continue on the summer of hot Achike. I got a few of my brain, but I think I'll actually just kind of let those go. But we'll see the list of the audience and I get a text in about a minute from Mayor Knickers, Spike. See, I gotta figure out a voice for Mayor Nick and Spike. Because they're very generic voices, right? At least with Mark. It was a voice that you could kind of make fun of in that sack. You don't need to be talking about going number two on the air. Okay, No one wants that visual. Right? You know? Fine. No one wants that. Okay? We don't need that in a Friday. Alright. What are you doing? Spike and David are pretty normal sounding right? Yeah, you have to, like, kind of really. Go to the extreme. You know, we have to go to We have to go to Boomer. We have to go to Boomer. Right boomers totally just destroyed any confidence that you had. Now we played you 50 seconds of that the other day, Boomer size and ripping Ryan Trace Hickey for the high pitched voice when he when he screens of phone call. I think he called you a pre pre pre pubescent kid. Or maybe that's just the way that I envisioned. What? No, he didn't actually. But afterwards did you hear the other minute to that? No. Oh, there was a minute afterwards. You didn't. You didn't put it on the air. I thought maybe you didn't want to include it? No, I didn't hear it. Yeah, they said Okay, Now, Ryan's Geo said, Yeah. Now Ryan is going to go fill out an application for Walmart or something else because all confidence is just totally ruined kids trying to be a talk show host and boomers making fun of his voice. Is your confidence now ruined. Know what are my back My on air voice in my screening the calls voice or two different now water off the back even when the great boomer a science and criticizes, But the thing is, he's not wrong. But we just did it yesterday. My voice. I'm sorry for being kind. If you want me to be a bad guy to the callers to the guest. I have no problem doing so, Yeah, you got to be, it would go deep voice. I'll start yelling at him, and I'll make sure they have a miserable experience that of the opposite that I try to do before I get along with you, but I think you're starting to make people feel a little bit. Just as if there's a four year old screening the phone calls so uncomfortable. I'm also going to blame the phone. It's not me. It's the fun. You see this thing this thing from 1950? No. This is the oldest phone in the history of radio. Maybe the history of phones. Trust me, Alexander Graham Bell, I think used his phone to make the first call. Dude, you're living at the Ritz Carlton. Right? This is when we work here. My voice must be just so distorted. I have called in a few times. It does sound different, I will say. All I'm saying is good morning. Go work at the small AM radio station that I was in Trenton, New Jersey. You have never seen an old looking phone until you see that phone anyway.

"Later, incarnation of the skill of liquors, along with Levi, Larry, and the song is called Back up. And push our guest. You might Understand why like Irish music. His name is Bill Donohue. He's a In my retired tutor is ST John's College here in Santa Fe. I guess nobody ever fully recharges that fairly accurate bill. You can't get out. It's like the Mafia. Oh, we're always you're always on call. Okay. All right, little back. All right. So you know, I've been up. I got invited up. Bye. Ah! Doctor Pasic T. Oh, you know, just kind of observe one of his classes on lasers and Einstein and It was fabulous. And there are actually opportunities for for the community, like continuing that kind of thing. Summer kind of like, you know, the science institutes and music institutes and the things during the summertime. That normal mortals like me can actually participate in correct That's right. Yes, Yeah, we're we're working on. We don't have this running. They've got it running in Annapolis. Unfortunately, but but we are way are doing a serious of experiments that that is. We're working on doing getting the equipment to do the experiments that will show some of the paradoxes involved in quantum mechanics like things being in two places at the same time. That can happen. That seems to happen, You know? I mean, one of the things that we can do in principle is we can we can take a light particle of Proton. And we can run it. We can run it through a maze where Where it It seems that you can. You can show that there was only one particle going through the maze. At this time You make me go through two slits, and then you and then you see what happens on the screen back behind it, and And the light seems to behave like a wave. Even though there's only one particle going through. It will create a pattern of light and dark interference, fringes. If you if, on the other hand, you do something that that gives you the information as to which hath it took through the maze. In the Then that just the fact that you've got that information will erase the interference pattern and just show you it will show you a spot on one at at the exit point of one part of the maze or another part of the maze. So How does it know how and when we were doing? We've read the theoretical stuff with the students in their senior year, but we couldn't show them the experiments. Now we're We've linked up with some people like Colgate and equipment, College and read and so on who have been have been developing these experiments so we can actually do it ourselves at ST John's right here inside of it. With their help. I mean, are you guys doing this? Like you and I are doing this right now. Are you doing this Virtually We have I have. I've been to Whittman College with a colleague at ST John's, and we spent. We spent a long weekend just playing with their equipment, so we know how to do it. And Right. And I have been slowly assembling. You know, we have a way have limited funds. So we're trying to figure out how how can we do this with the equipment we have on hand and the answer? Really? Basically as well. We can't Not yet, but as far as we go along, I'm learning exactly what it is that we need and how we could get it just cheaply as possible. All right, so I, You know, one of the reasons like like doing this because I learned so much from, you know, even the short virtual sessions with you or you or Peter or Natalie or Katherine. You know all the incredible minds that we have up on the hill here in Santa Fe. If you are If you are a parent or a grandparent, or if your student considering ST John's college and you are as deep in science as you can be. Theoretical applicable practical history of, uh of science. What's still out there. What still is out there? I mean, is it just an infinite and a number of stuff that in the next the next Bill Donohue to come along, and they're 50 years, 60 year career in science. We're going to discover things that I mean is E mean, there are Basically is there is much that will be discovered moving forward as from Alexander Graham Bell till now. I think I think there's a huge amount way beyond. Yeah, The thing is that whatever age you look at science, whatever period They were kind of in the same position. They they're they're They're discovering all kinds of interesting things. And they're finding some here. There is a dead end. But we can be like, Well, okay, we'll go into it. But what? But The, um The thing is that they just don't know what's coming in the future, and people were in the 19th century. Some of the physicists were saying, Well, we've got it all figured out. We've got. We really just about got the theory of every everything worked out just a few little things around the edges that we still have toe have to settle, and this is before the discovery of Subatomic particles, electrons, relativity, quantum mechanics, You know, you can go on and on and on. They had no idea what was coming coming along. I don't think we have any idea. What's coming along. There's a lot of people who are doing who are doing that work kind of around the edges of that sort of united. So what? What? What's taking place? Right now? That's gonna lead to that is it is it. You know the materials. Engineering is, you know that old little lead to faster, better quantum computers. You know, my guess is that the interstates between biology and consciousness Is is something for there's gonna be. There's gonna be some kind of Some kind of huge breakthrough. At some point, you're talking like singularity kind of thing. Not exactly. It's just that just the question of mind versus brain. And how How can you There's the There's a lot of work being done a lot of people arguing ferociously about about whether it's possible for consciousness simply to be a UNEP. It's phenomenon an emergent property of neurons. And there are people say yes. Got to be on their people saying, Well, it's way too complicated for that. And and the question is what? How are you going to investigate that? That's the kind of question that Nobody knows, you know, so you gotta try stuff, and that's that's what I think where we're really preparing people for at ST John's is how do you? How do you even approach a question for which you have nobody's ever gotten an answer to it? And okay and and there aren't any in strike. It's like you've got this machine with no instructions, and you have to figure out by by poking things. How does it work? We do that in the science in the lab at Saint John's, over and over and over again. Seeing how people did that in the past, and I think that's one of the that's something that That people don't realize about ST John's. It's not all reading German philosophers we're doing. We're doing stuff that, in its own way is cutting edge in the sciences. Not that it's the most advanced science, but it's science at a level that that involves the thought process. At the very highest level. Which leads us to I I would imagine you have to also discuss the ethics of a lot of this. We do? We don't. Yeah, it comes. It comes out. I hope you do anyway. We do we do When we are in freshman year they they hit it right away. We are looking at living things. And how do you look at living things while you're looking at You're looking at the bodies of your dissecting animals, so people people then when they're confronted with a with the body of an animal They're thinking about will Shouldn't I have? How do I? How do I deal with this? I mean, this is, um This is something that I would Appreciate is a living thing, but isn't Is it right to be cutting something up that right then people, people think. What if I'm if I'm bothered by that? Why do I eat me? All these questions have to be resolved all these theoretical questions all this cutting edge science. Ah! Your best Guess, Bill..

"I think you have to kind of undue and when you when you approach a topic like this, which is this idea that the the breakthrough idea the white ball moment is a single thing happening in a single mind? And that it happens in an instant, and people do tend to build these elaborate fictions about their kind of moments of epiphany. But when you go back and look at the historical record, and kind of rewind the tape and play it slowly, and so many of these breakthrough allegedly kind of breakthrough epiphanies, what you find is in fact. The idea was incubating for very long period of time. It actually builds upon other ideas by other people. It's it's more of a kind of a remixing of other people's concepts and other people's tools, and it kind of fades into view over a much longer period of time. That's what I call the slow hunch in the book that It's not this kind of gut impression. Or this sudden, you know, moment of clarity, but this much more evolutionary, more Mork kind of lingering process. Do you have to sense that there is never a eureka moment, or do you have, like, you know one eureka moment and 50 slow. Small interviews. I think that there are moments where you do kind of advance in some clear fashion, and you suddenly do see things that anyways, a lot of them come in dreams. Actually, the book talks a lot about how many amazing empirical scientific discoveries actually occur to people in chains. But I guess part of what I'm trying to do with this argument is to correct that. The emphasis replaced on those the other thing about those Eureka moments is that they make and often usually do occur to least 10, other people the same time, which diminishes the eureka nous of it. For example, for example, the telephone the patents for the telephone were submitted. Alexander Graham Bell and Gray within three hours of each other. Really? Yes. And, um Voi bulbs were the light pole that we associate with Thomas Edison. He was the last of 23 other people to me. There was no light bulb. No lightbulb know, like Bob knows that but no luck.

"Here on 7 20, WGN. We're talking to award winning author and historian Richard Lindbergh and his book Tales of for Gotten Chicago. So one story and I don't know if I really knew this, but you know, we all think Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. That's really not the case and was someone here in Chicago? Well, that Z that that's a tail. It's kind of missed with tragedy and irony. Uh, actually Alexander Graham Bell likely was not the inventor. Instead, it life's degree of eminent scientist who lived for many years in Highland Park. Really conceived the telephone, but he failed to secure the patents in time by matter of six or seven hours in Washington, D. C. Alexander Graham Bell got the patent before he did. Likely through trickery in deception and perhaps even bribery. The pants of examiner apparently was beholden in some way. To Bell and his associates and was not above taking a bride to issue the patent. And this was an issue that life's a gray and otherwise seemed. Scientist died in the early 20th century Very well respected, but just imagine, how would you you would feel inventing the telephone and not getting the proper credit for it. But looking closer at it. They were actually a number of people at that time who were involved in, uh, in coming up with the patent for the telephone. He wasn't the only one. But he was the closest to the finish line and just missed out. And it is the died embittered and who can blame him? Really, But the name that's really lost to history is one Xena's Wilbur and he was the patent examiner in Washington, D. C and he was a drunkard. He was a former Union Army soldier, and he had gotten into some problems and And was not averse to taking some money for it. And despite grace protestations over the years, uh it fell on Intel on deaf ears. And he kind of slipped into the abyss of forgotten history and his home still stands in Highland Park, and, um, it's reputed behind it from what I understand, but I guess there comes with Frasier. Yeah, Absolutely. There's a couple other stories I want to touch upon. Richard One is the first police woman in Chicago. Yes, Marie Connelly. Always. She was Active in the 18 nineties and early 20th century, she rose to the rank of sergeant and is believed to be the first police woman in the United States. She was hired by the mayor of Chicago in 18 91. There had been, uh, terrible abuses of the child laborers who were working an atrocious factory conditions. Uh, there was a horrific crime in the mid 18 eighties. Involving the young girl who was senselessly murdered in a factory in Green Street on the South side, and it was decided by the City Council in Chicago Police Department to begin to hire matrons to go and inspect factories and places where Children were employed, and she was the first of five. Women who were given this role. Later on, she became a sworn Chicago police officer and given the prevailing prejudices and discriminations of the day, she was kind of relegated to what they call women's work as a part. A zit was then known. Where they would deal with runaway Children. And they would you know, examine sweatshops and incidences of parental abuse and see what investigate this slum dwellings to see the observe the quality of life and make recommendations. But indeed, she became a full sergeant in the police department and later had arresting powers. And it's quite an interesting story. And in ground breaking, obviously, for that time in history, a stars and bars and the symbol of a city. That was the that was the invention of the flag of Chicago. Chicago did not have an official flag at that time and There was a contest forth in 18 93 to come up with the sometime of emblem for it. And finally they did. And this is the stars and bars reflect the virus reflects the two Branches of the Chicago River, the north of south branch in the four stars represent the most important aspects of Chicago history. Uh, the world's Columbian Exposition, the Fort Dearborn. Uh, massacres. They called it in those days. Um, the 1933 World Square and the flag was adopted by resolution in 1919 in Chicago. And there it has remained since then. It's It's the symbol of our city. Absolutely is the leading tower. That's the last one I want to hit today, but that sure that story Oh, drive down to E Avenue over my files. You see this sudden, very curious. Replica, the leaning Tower of pizza, and it's just kind of sits there until we have a new and people here, take it for granted. I recalled driving by with my cousins from Europe one day and they were astonished to see it something that we take for granted. As we What As we drive by, and you know you don't think anything of it, but it was a product of the 19 thirties, And it was an industrial project Genesis designed by Robert Mills, who was an inventor of various air conditioning fans before we had our conditioning, and he had he built a little park called Bill Chair Park for his employees as a place for them to go recreation. And he went to pieces, studied the famous tower and came back and erected this this monument to it. This identical replica, although it's shorter and size, and it was built over a drainpipe. Is that right? Okay, drainpipe. It just covered up a drainpipe. He had a swimming pool built and then use later It became a Y M c a in 1963, right? And we only touched upon a few of these stories. The book is called Tales of Forgot in Chicago. The author is Richard Lindbergh. Pick it up at your local bookseller or at amazon dot com. Great stories. Richard Images.

This is amazing. It's like they must be, But definitely we might they must be. But the other thing that I want to see you. I wouldn't have said that five years ago. But look at what's been released in the last three or four years. And like by reputable Pete, not crazies, like Legitimately reputable people currently into Gone is is even, you know, releasing interesting information that leads us to believe. They think there's doesn't lead us to believe you. They just said, Yeah, they have. They identified flying up and it is otherworldly on it is tracking Our naval and air force maneuvers and it is legitimately like know that 500 craziest thing that's happened in the last year.

A cubit a cubit and oh, okay, they take this is quantum quantum bits of information, right? And so they took Quantum bit of information, and they use the string theory where two strings are, you know, entangled? And so the information remained. Where it Woz. And some other laboratory long way away, They said. There is no distance. That is going to be a problem. And there is no uh, degradation of the information. None so they could do that T o did.

So when he speaks like this to Mark's point I guess they plan is for CNN to alienate computer they already have. I suppose they probably don't even care anymore Half the country When you say those things and again they keep claiming to be the objective down the middle network, and clearly it's almost impossible to tell the difference between MSNBC, CNN and media matters as it pertains to the media team. They're so look that that's what they have. And when, when Donald Trump has gone in two weeks, and Joe Biden comes in, and they settle in, it is gonna be a ratings crash like we haven't seen since the 2000 and financial crisis in terms of a number being in one place and going down to another coast. Once you lose your central character, and that's all Donald Trump has been on that network for five years. They got nothing. And they can't go back to being the Bernard Shaw Gulf War CNN because they got people like Anderson Cooper there, Tito alienate their audience. But let me tell you where it's also gonna go.

I can't give the exact date they're going to start tanking. And then they got to realize that their daily dose of feigned outrage against Donald Trump Um, and their hatred of this man fueled you know their entire Network for all this time, and I'm just guessing they're really going to miss this guy. You have a big question is what will they do when there's a tremendous loss in ratings and then revenue and they got to do something and executives gonna get fired? Will they turn on bite? Will they start to go after Hunter to save themselves? I don't I don't know. Or will they keep up the plan? We're gonna go back. They're gonna pledge to stay away from all covering Trump. Then they're going to be forced to cover him because they're gonna It's like it's like a drug to them now. I mean, that was gonna be major withdrawal symptoms and all of them. You know, and at the media should be outraged about Facebook and Twitter censoring Donald Trump. You know what Alexander Graham Bell invented the phone. That was the most important invention he changed with. Imagine if he said only people agree with politically can use it. I don't agree with you. I'm not giving you a phone and you can talk to imagine the phone company did that. Why? Why do we allow this space?

I mean, you know, Rianna Taylor goes on and on and on the list, and and I think you know, in in sort of Trying toe get through how we feel about this stuff for sort of talk about how we feel about this stuff. The MBA has been prevalent in all of it. You know, people are going to sit back. I didn't see as much of this yesterday and I don't want to say it's going away. Maybe I'm just I've turned a blind eye to it, or I'm not paying much attention to it. But the whole stick to sports thing for people in sports from people outside of sports, It appears that that was not really a topic yesterday. This was not a It was an American issue yesterday, right? This was a historic moment. I'm you know, I'm not trying to make light of any of this. I'm not poking fun at any of this, but I think we were all relieved to get to the afternoon into the evening and have a little basketball. Think we were all all pretty relieved. You know, not not that It was all done. Not that everything was finished. You still have the National guard sitting outside of the Capitol building, And I know for African Americans myself included. It was a frustrating, angering day. You see how the police and law enforcement reacted at the Capitol building after what had happened just hours before. Really? 24 hours before we find out that nobody no police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was going to be prosecuted or charged with anything after the shooting of Jacob Blake seven times into his back, And then you've got terrorists who are storming the gates and the doors and shooting into the or excuse me, breaking the windows and vandalizing the Capitol building first time this has happened since 18 14 the war of 18 12. Off for for history buffs out there. That's the last time that happened. When the British break into the Capitol building, they burned down the White House. By the way from my history buffs out there. I was talking to Dave about this this morning, just a little. Note on the WARF 18 12 when when they break it, James Madison's president at the time over, they break into the into the White House to Senator Senator Blaze. Dolly Madison, who was James Madison's wife, Dave. In my era, Quick wasn't it Wasn't a framed photo are painting of George Washington. It was a painting of George Washington is what? She just wasn't a photograph. No, if you go that captain Fick can't read yet, right? Alexander Graham Bell is still working on the phone. Did radio so she ends up saving a painting of George Washington. Historic painting, But the story goes that she and he had she'd cooked like a huge dinner in one of the halls there. She was a part of a huge dinner that was gonna be served. And you know the British come get ready to tear down the building and set in the place. They get inside. Nobody's there. But the table setting. The food is made to the British. I'll sit down and they have their meal before they set it on fire. Well, you know, it's it's you look at those moments in history, and it's It's sort of a fun outline story of that. But this was a scary moment. Yesterday. These were people who live in this country. These are people who Are a part of our communities here who have decided that when they get upset, and they don't get their way that they're going to march to the capital, they're going to take what they think belongs to them. And the comparisons between what happened with George Floyd and a lot of athletes spoke about this. We're gonna get into this because Steve current don't don't worry, War your fans will get into the extras knows Yesterday as well because Steve Kerr talked a lot about it after the game the game itself, But it did feel like a weird game, but also your warrior fan a little bit encouraging, based on how they played against one of the best defensive teams in the league and the team that plans to be atop the Western Conference this year. I think there were some encouraging things to take away, especially the bench play from that second unit. It's really starting to sort of Trim itself into what it needs to be starting to mold itself into a good second unit, and they start to get some scoring out of a unit. Michael Molder has been a part of that swells Eric Paschal, so we will get into that stuff. But there was a lot that went on yesterday around the game because again two days ago Tuesday afternoon, we find out that that no one in Kenosha, Wisconsin, is going to be charged with any of the shooting of Jacob Blake. And so then what happens is yesterday On the heels of what happens at the Capitol, many MBA players coaches teams decided that they were going to demonstrate you had between Pistons in the Milwaukee Bucks. They took a knee both teams to start the game. They do the tip and then after the possession, every player on the floor in every coach took a knee for back to back possessions to do to two little turnovers to each other to demonstrate the discussed the angst of the anger that I think a lot of us are are feeling this morning that if it were black people if it were people of color if it were Muslims marching upon the capital, this would have been an entirely different situation. Would've been a whole lot quicker. I'll tell you that the thing's got shut down. So I understand the anger because I'm one of the people who was upset about this yesterday. I also felt like it was a nice release to have this happen with the NBA. Last night, I saw a joint statement was put out at one point by the Celtics and By the Miami Heat, saying that they felt like they needed to play their game. And I shared that sentiment..

Why Do People Still Use Fax Machines?
"In eighteen. Seventy eight Alexander. Graham Bell filed patent for a history altering device called the electronic telephone. But what you may not know. Is that the patent for another amazing communication tool. The simile machine or fax machine was filed by Scottish. clockmaker named Alexander Bain three decades earlier. That's right fax machines predate even rudimentary telephones and with a cockroach-like likes survivability that makes very little sense from an evolutionary standpoint. The fax machine lives on beeping and wheezing up sheets of paper. The world over for example vaccine is big in Japan even today about half of Japanese families use a fax machine in their homes. The question is why to understand. Dan Helps to know a bit about the facsimile machines place in history. Although the technology had been around for decades it wasn't until the nineteen thirty nine New York world's fair that fax machines. I seized mainstream recognition in the United States there attendees stood slack jawed in amazement as they viewed images and text arriving from around the the world at eighteen sheets permit. The machines were simply too expensive for everyday use though even by nine hundred eighty two one standalone fax machines sold for a whopping twenty thousand dollars far too pricey even for most businesses much less individual consumers. It wasn't until later in the nineteen eighties that the cost of the machines dropped to a point that businesses and offices found them useful notably documents that required legal signatures copied signatures. As you can probably guess were a source of controversy for years as legal professionals argued about the validity of documents that arrived via phone lines however as court after court confirmed armed the validity of faxed signatures doctors lawyers financial gurus and other professionals began to rely on faxes to transmit paperwork all over the place thus thus entrenched in the workflow and minds of countless millions of people the late nineteen eighties saw dramatic rise. In the number of fax machines. America had only around three hundred thousand contraptions in the middle of the eighties by nine hundred. Eighty nine there were more than four million. The Fax Machines Heyday was at hand. They even featured prominently in pop up culture. The one thousand nine thousand nine Scifi comedy back to the future part two explorers a future where the mic fly family had a fax machine in every room so the facts in process is one that billions of people have ingrained into their consciousness place assigned document in the machine punching the destination phone number. Hit the green button and minutes later. Your paperwork is in the hands of a colleague on the other side of town or on the other side of the world assuming that the fax machine has paper the cartridge is not out of ink and nothing has gotten stuck in the transmission transmission process but in the mid nineteen ninety s another history changing technology exploded and use the internet which provided people with ways aged instantly. Send text pictures and documents without these of paper with the coming of widespread e mail. It seemed that fax machines were doomed. Only they weren't aren't in two thousand seventeen study from market intelligence firm. IDC showed that the four major industries that are still using faxes Those industries being manufacturing factoring healthcare finance and government all predicted increased use of faxing over the next two years averaging twenty five percent increase.

Mark Twain: great novelist, horrible investor
"Twain also invested a lot of money throughout his life though, and he is the first person who's big investment mistake Michael told us about, and actually in the case of twain, it was more than one he made every mistake in the. He was addicted to entrepreneurs. He would fall for anything. He would back any idea. He dabbled in stocks and silver mines, and gold mines. And he just everything he touched, went south twin was like an early version of a venture capitalist. He invested his money in a bunch of new kind of faddish ideas except he was terrible at it. He put his money into milk powder, extract railroad stocks a startup insurance company. They were all disasters and the one big idea that he chose not to put his money into you that he passed up when you had a chance. Alexander Graham Bell telephone, oh, which would have made twain a fortune between biggest mistake. Michael says, might have been throwing a lot of money at this big typesetting business, and it had to do with this machine. The twain hoped would be used by newspapers and publishing companies and twin kept investing more and more and more money in this typesetting business, even as its loss. Were just piling up on his biggest mistake was that he didn't know when to say no moss. I'm not going to continue to fund this really bad investment. Why do you think he could not walk away a, he was human and we all have our our flaws and limitations, and there's something called revenge trading where if you lose money in a stock, you want to win it back the same way and he just could not control himself. And I think that a an underlying theme in this book is that discipline and self awareness is a lot more important to determine your long success than just ro IQ, revenge. Tradings like the worst sequel to a movie ever. Trading revenge, trading revenge of the trader. Poor Mark Twain. Yeah, twain ended up losing an amount of money on that typesetting investment that would be the equivalent today of millions of dollars, but not knowing one to cut. Your losses is actually not the only lesson that we should take away from the story of Mark Twain's terrible investment record. There's another lesson which is at you can be amazing world class at this one thing. Just like Mark Twain obviously was at writing and still be terrible, horrible hopeless at another completely different walk of life like investing or that you can be really bad at investing and still be a really wonderful human being a light in the world gift to the country, all those things. And just I like that change the perspective. Very nice, right. And just like just maybe just, you know, put it in index funds, just put it in index funds next up the oracle from Omaha himself.
