Who Killed the President
"Today. We take a look back in history couple hundred years and asked the question who killed the president. It wasn't the bullet July. Second eighteen eighty one chaim say Garfield arrived at the Baltimore and Potomac train station for a much-needed holiday. Just four months had passed since the former union general in Ohio. Congressman had been sworn in as the nation's. Nation's twentieth president as Garfield Carriage pulled up outside the Baltimore and Potomac Charles Gucci Paste the waiting room inside ready to fulfil what he believed was a mission from God at around nine twenty am. Garfield entered the station. Longside Secretary Blaine, who had offered to escort him to his train, as strode through the waiting room Gutierrez, snuck up behind them drew his pistol. He fired two shots at the. The should from point blank range. The first bullet only grazed Garfield right arm. The second struck Garfield in the lower back, and knocked him to the floor. He was immediately carried to the train and laid on the floor. They're bleeding profusely from his back wound within minutes, ten different doctors had arrived to examine him an try. Locate the second bullet though no one knew at the time, the slug. Slug had missed the president's arteries and vital organs and embedded itself near his pancreas time it was very survivable injury, but the army of well-meaning physicians only worsened the damage by using their unsterilized fingers and wants to probe the wound, introducing germs, and potentially causing an infection Thomas Lister a name. You might recognize from listerine. A big promoter of the danger of germs protested, but the doctors would have. Have none of it after an hour of excruciating prodding, the president was carried for the train station to the bedroom at the White House. Is Doctors feared? He would not survive the night. Forty nine year old president had rallied the first few days after the shooting, but his condition worsened after Dr d Willard Bliss administered heavy doses of Quinine Morphine and alcohol, which brought on doubts vomiting that left. Left him, weak and emaciated bliss also conducted repeated medical probes in a futile attempts to locate the second bullet. In August, he even enlisted the help of telephone inventor Alexander Graham Bell who used a crude metal detector, called an induction balance to search for the slug, the machine at work perfectly in test, but the screening failed due to interference from the springs and the president's bed to make matters. Matters worse bell was only permitted to search the right side of Garfield, body, where bliss, incorrectly believed the bullet was lodged by September a massive infection, most likely caused by medical treatment have left Garfield with persistent fever and obsesses over entire body. He was taken to a cottage on Jersey. Shore in the hope that the cool sea air would revive him, but died in the night of September nineteenth. Nineteenth eighteen eighty one.

"I mean really council. It's all about that you know I'm just GONNA run. Sign up like hey can i. Don't see how the secret yeah what you are saying. We were talking about evolution in. Here's a question what I've loosened that is completely unrelated. Okay great but happened right before you got here today today today. Adam pulled the first hair out of his ears. Oh started yelling. I'm like evolution. Nearly what would be the advantage of having here in years. When you're old tell me why the whole lodge that how oh good question I mean my instinct is to say to keep like hair and anywheres? I keep whatever out but you almost would need that more when you're younger saying in like the you know how women get hair on their face and stuff when they get older which is now. I feel a little buddy that hangs up right there. and that's like hormone testosterone turn related okay but like then the men lose the hair on their heads with higher testosterone levels too right but then they get here and there year yep but then also high testosterone you get body other places you can have a full head of hair but I have a big oil and Lord no I have no idea I got but nothing. I don't even have a hearing. Oh Sarah has tragic. Maybe the show is almost over. No tapped impossible and definitely making it all the way to episode twenty. You think I'm like I. It's like I have a calendar are at home or I'm just counting down the days till I get suzy stoned on the air. I got a great. We're GONNA love it. What are you scared? No idea drinking is worse. Worse down to last a why on here no problems I read this thing about how You know now with the increased legalization of marijuana that a lot of people are having this weird thing where they vomit all the time and the only solution is to get it. I shower and the cure is to quit. Yeah marijuana but what strange. In fact I've heard about this. It's so it's very rare and I think it's only like it's like people who have who do a lot lot where your body is so. It's so bizarre. Because you know how they give it to people who who are nauseous as you know. Maybe they have cancer. They're on Chemo and they take pot and helps them so you wouldn't expect it to them but it's almost like if you it's the withdrawals that that caused them to throw. It's not the smoking that causes them to throw up. It's what they don't smoke right. Thank I think it's the withdrawal because I think it's a it's a bounceback thing of like if you get the symptom I don't know like they get the symptoms stronger longer. It's like withdrawals I think. All I know is they don't really kind of understand why it happened so much that they do say all you have to do is stop doing. Can't go away. Yeah maybe it's a build up of like resin in the lungs or something like that if you're thinking about like if you're depending on what you're smoking out of your smoking joints or something like that. What were your just and there isn't some sort of like filtration system or you're not doing vaporizing or whatever kind of like where it's cleaner. Yeah than because like anybody's used a pipe or bong or anything like that knows that the inside of those will look black and brown like after few months. So could you imagine what the inside would wouldn't be any different and so maybe hot shower. Maybe that like breaks it up in the same way that if you see your cleaning it out you run under hot water and it loses everything up you hear these people describe the pain. That's awful like horrific. Oh Jeez one guy was like. I've broken bones. I've this way worse. What is that? I don't know they say it's like one guy. said it was like having a puffer fish in him that would expand all the needles will go into his spine and then into his stomach make. It was like it sounded like childbirth. Does that like where your lungs are. They said it's in the stomach abdomen. Okay that's weird it is I. I have no clue. I'm really glad we don't have that because I don't smoke pot I do take the gumy's yeah to sleep. And no no vomiting. Neither thank. You haven't haven't thank heavens running out of options right Outta fucking sleep. Okay wait oh I did read a really cute book. I just thought I had mentioned it. It's called wisdom from humble jellyfish. Oh and It really was not jellyfish was used an animal and then describe the behavior of the animal. How you could apply it to your own? I guess with a jellyfish one is yeah that he doesn't try to resist the current he just goes with the flow and floats along and is it's like a jellyfish in the ocean. Kind of yeah. It said that in order for them to move they have to kind of like contract and then release. Um there's a period where they're not really doing anything relaxing in order to move forward that who I love metaphor therapy work mark officials kind of what I go to often so I can use that expanded shoes. I love this. Yeah in you know. Sometimes it felt like whereas a stretch. But it's all applicable. You think. Well I can definitely apply that to my life is Lago spirit animal things yes so this is like back. Yeah that and then some yeah and it was real short and I thought Oh this would make a really nice gift for somebody to but so you could check that out Wisdom from a humble jellyfish jellyfish. Okay let me think what I wanted to add before we're done Hold on let me see. Let me pick a winner. I know there was on the American History Museum website. There was this really cool. Just love that. You're visiting the American. Well I follow them on twitter. Sometimes they'll link to a story or whatever and they're really really cool and they had this one post about an article about what the I think. The headline was what did it sound. Unlike in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. And it's the oldest recording that we have you can hear Alexander Graham Bell Out. Yes and and I believe Thomas Edison talking testing out their inventions. which were these what these early devices to record? Well it's not very clear but you can definitely make out what they're saying and they're just sort of saying like this. Is Alexander Graham Bell. I'm testing testing out this device. It's this day and can you hear me or whatever and it just like I listening to Alexander Real Bell Red now and I just it really does help to make history come alive. Yeah because it can feel like these are all like mythical actors that aren't real people but when you actually hear them yeah you think this is a real guy. Yeah and you know what we need that because we brush over history so so fast and it's like you know I think a lot of your childhood when you're learning about that stuff you just like okay. I just want to know whether it's ABC or d on the tests like that. I don't care about south. What happened you just kind of brush overhead and we missed you know when you were talking before earlier in this episode about how everybody has a story and they're also interesting staying? Yes that you know like having learning more about the person even connect yeah and makes you love of the even the respect or whatever the invention that they made even more. Yeah they were describing. You know I think it was the world's fair I wish we do. We still have those us. I don't think so. Probably not as fun now if we do but back in the day those who are really special events where you would unveil all these huge big deals in terms of technology and called German food and sandwiches have coachella. Yeah right like burning man right but I mean we now it would probably all be weird like Hologram e stuff and I don't know but back. Then they were more things that we still use now or or you know. It'd be now like those circuses. That are all three that are all like the hologram projection. Yeah stuff like that right unveil. It'd be cool too. That'd be so oh cool you're right that'd be awesome. I kind of am not a techie person. So I get like oh I wouldn't be into that. 'cause it's like weird. Does these devices. They're they're not very exciting. But but yeah you're right. That would be cool. Yeah and to here so I guess Graham Bell and End Edison. Were you know sort of rivals. And they were kind of a race to figure all this stuff out and I love when rivalry can and spark innovation and improvements. And one of the recordings was up in a hot air balloon for some reason. And and so you're thinking wow this was at school happening. That's really cool. Yeah so I mean you guys to check it out American History Museum maybe Diet could put that in our our newsletter so that you can link to it and listen for yourself they do provide a transcript as well so you can read along in case. It's like 'cause parts are harder hungrier than others but it was really cool so check the now. Yeah and reminded the competition thing. You're talking like a little competition. I watched that for Ford versus for movie excellent. It was excellent excellent I. It was a movie that was three hours long. But I didn't want it to be over when it was done. Yeah I was mad at rand falling asleep half not mad but like you missed a really good movie. No we're just really tired and we're both sick and so it was like you know the guy needed a nap APP. Mike can't talk to you about those. I must be really into that idea too because my favorite movie is the prestige. which is the magician one with us but that is the excellence? Levy Norton Christian Bale Christian Bale and Hugh O.. Hugh grant no that guy's name Hugh whatever Jackman thank you called him you know yeah so but they were competitor magicians and then it made them WanNa do more and more and more But I guess I I like that theme for versus Ferrari was good to see that.

"Conversation in case you wanted to talk about that. I did not watch Richard Pryor one they have series. I think it's on. ABC where it's like the last days of so they had like last days of Phil Hartmann. Did they have rhea Perlman on there. She's been not not not real prome saying the wrong person. WHO's The one who was Rosanna? Rosanna Oh Gilda Radner radnor thank got. It was upset. That Carla Tourtel. Had you know they have well. I did watch the radnor documentary that was on CNN. Oh that's it was so good. I thought it was the same series. We have a wine fly problem just to just to aggressive ones. We don't even have why we don't. We're drinking water. We should have wine because I mean might as well the flies are here you know. Give them somewhere to sit. Gilda radner is fantastic. I love her worship her. This is they did Phil Hartmann one member when his wife murdered boy was that bonkers that was crazy and then they did. Richard Pryor prior. I guess it's a series and you know it's like my favorite things comedy death like duck letter. It's all of my favorite like like ingredients but the takeaway from that. What do you think of Richard Pryor? Do you find him funny. Yeah Yeah I find funny but it's almost like for at that time period you know like but that's that's the shame of old comedy and stuff like that because you don't realize the context of this. This person changed everything because you take it for granted now that so many other people copy these people like even I felt like that about the national lampoon movies. 'CAUSE I didn't see them until I was an adult said to me. They were okay but like right. I didn't know that they were a game changer. Yeah totally true but so his he was the first person to do a special like alive. Wasn't even thing. Wow that was cool to hear because I was like. Oh well that's just something you see constantly now. My Gosh his was called. I forget what it's called live at dumber On sunset maybe what I took away from it was just that he had this very difficult life but he found the funny in the tragedies while it's just something that's like the best part good comedians like that and like if we could hit August do that. It's so hard to do though but to turn your dark moments into joy. Did he seem like somebody who. We're that. Joy that that ability to turn the dark moments into joy carried through when he carried him when he wasn't on stage or do you feel like it was darkness offstage estate agent joy onstage. Like one of those Kinda. I think that he was just unsettled. He never really made peace. Maybe he made the funny but he didn't find peace and he was married seven times to live women well in seven times to five women. Yeah he did to twice. Oh my you know. That's really funny. Yeah and he just couldn't get it together. Arnie you remember when he lit himself on fire. I don't so he was smoking crack. Or whatever no as she it and he had a torch and ignited himself at the time. People didn't know that it was on purpose but it was on purpose. Yeah he was trying to end his life no but it was because he was under the workmen's wasn't thinking right and he's like I'll I tell you that really sobers yep like when you're on fire and he ran down the street. He almost died. Oh my God. He had burns on fifty percent of his body. He you know he had a rough rough one rough go and his grandma owned a brothel. He grew up in the brothel. Do you know this is all. Oh No I know. I've seen his comedy. But I do not know the backstory. Yeah like this. He's had a terrible and it's impossible for him to shake the trauma of full forget. Of course there's no yeah had turned that into. Yeah because he made great jokes about got it right but like sometimes that can be healing and other times I think it can be a mask it. Yes absolutely Oh oh goodness sorry. You need to watch that story on the less excited. But it's just food for thought and I. I don't know why I just love. Hearing People's stories. People have such interesting lives. Everybody every single person. That's why I do my job. Yeah love hearing about thing that would get me about your job though is when people are stuck and it's their own doing like they can't get to that next stage no evolution. Yeah wouldn't that bother you. Well it's kind of job to get them unstuck and find out what things are keeping them stock and help them work around those things. Like what would you say usually keep somebody stuck a fear of thing like change the unknown. Yeah kind of like. It's more comfortable even though it's uncomfortable. It's doing the same thing that I've been doing. Just the thing that I'm so familiar with and all I've experienced that I can't even contemplate life different than this like I kind of think of like when I started taking medication for Adhd Christie. I had no idea what the rate being a regular person felt like. I just was like this is just this is just it I just am. I'm constantly anxious and it just I always have this feeling that. There's something about two terrible about to happen or whatever like I've forgotten something really important I have to do. Yeah and it's like they're all the time and I just like I thought you'd never know all I've ever known and I'm like that just seems like it. So does it usually take another the person in their life like a partner or whatever to be like. The hats not norm all and then they seek a solution or more like they start to who they just have to take the leap off of the Ledge and so they try something close to that maybe just like a little element so like when. Somebody's trying to make a big change. Let's not worry about making big huge changes. What's like one small thing? Yeah I'm all do that. Yes you make one teenager and all so people the difference between still water boiling waters one degree yeah. One degree to do is put in one degree of effort. Yeah and if it doesn't work then we can talk about that if it does work then let it be the kind of like getting the ball rolling and keeping that momentum going and getting them like excited like okay. That wasn't that bad and then whatever it is it's just people's thoughts and ideas really like predictions about how things are going to keep them stuck so after like a race. Their expectations and predictions of like people do a lot of like predicting the future that hasn't in happened yet and that causes insane anxiety in predicting the future that we can't control that we don't know what's going to happen causing psyche and trying to change the pat or worrying and and ruminating on the past that you definitely can't change will create feelings of depression. I wish we could find a way to get evolution to like. I'm talking globally personal. Yeah could speed it up because it feels like a lot of things that trip us up. Yeah are things that are evolutionary beneficial from like lol hundred percent susie. Hey man sister and you're right and it's not caught up with our time correct. Yeah that's why we have to not be reacting reacting from that like reptilian brain. We have evolved. But we're not utilizing the part of our brain that has we haven't gotten to the place in in our evolution or whatever it is where the majority of the functioning is happening in those like in that executive functioning place yet to be aware. It's almost like So like a two yard God so okay for example traffic. So you're cutting traffic and you can be like I. I am stuck in traffic right now. And that is the frigging worst. It's awful. I'm going to fight this feeling like Oh hey traffic. I'm very reactive. It's like everything's pissing. Me Off. Disgust driving to slow that efforts Levin their breaks. Look at that idiot over there is texting like and you could be highly reactive because you just like are almost resisting and fighting the fact that you're in traffic right now yeah uh-huh and then you can have another person who's driving right next to him in the exact same traffic who's traffic is threat. Look render surrender. Under what a what can I do. And they're like singing along the radio having a good time. Yeah because they've thought about there's nothing I can really do. Do here is would be happy. Might as well what what can I really do. And they have that but if you are just in that place where I say there's a bunch that's why I say zoom out all the time because what's contributing to why it'd be in that reactionary place did you Get a bad review at work did you. Were you late to pick up your kids. Do you have kids screaming in the back of the car. Did you forget to eat lunch today. Are there all these things that could take away. A energy from being able to use that more like executive functioning like higher self that I don't know increased awareness part of your brain that kind of puts assists in a more our defenses down when we are tired. Hungry lonely all that. If you are hungry then I would.

I send some to my nephew's in Pittsburgh as well so everyone's getting a healthy okay okay Yeah so would I was even thinking what if you took like your regular cereal and half regular like make it less awed here. That's a great idea though. I'd like butternut squash macaroni and cheese. Basic smart yeah they never know yes. I I love that idea. Okay so this guy. Soon the porn how we're on his side but it. It is a strange thing to sue porn in have about. Yeah I don't know but it kind of makes me mad that like I just really want I was I was watching it. I don't know if I talked about this on here before before but I was watching this. Female comedian on the show called the degenerates who was so funny. who was talking about how? How come she like pulled the audience and she's like I just started watching porn like raise your hand if you pay for porn and nobody raised their hand just like okay? Wait a SEC. We've got spotify Sherbrooke Net flicks. No problem you pay for all this. But you've got this trick over here getting twelve Dick's and you're like oh no you work harder. You think about that. And she's like come on. Pay Those those women need your money like I think you know I disagree. Like if friends was available to stream for free I would choose that. Yeah that's Tro. o The point the reason we pay for fucking Netflix. Because those things were like supporting the actor. Yeah this is a good all cable. That wasn't as funny as I'm just talking capitalism over here right then I thought about whichever like if you like. Do you think you would like eventually get to the point where you wanted to like. I don't think I would have if you do. I think you should do some soul-searching before you're paying for part e BEF- Yes yes you're paying for sex or poor area. I don't see any any reason to do that. And if you need that then maybe maybe a little too much. It is weird that nobody pays for that. But it's such a big industry. Well people do though because it's a very small percentage but they're like really into it crazy. That's the premiums go for people. If that's what you want to spend your money yeah yeah no judgment but like it's crazy in our lives because we wouldn't do that. Yeah good for you and I only need about fifteen to twenty seconds against like visual good. You know most of its tap my head anyway. Hey you know yeah who are we to judge so we know one who net none at all. This is the next debate. I feel like I know what your answer will be. I also want to say I don't even use porn anymore because I found found really wonderful website. That's all female. It's called like police or something like that or something. But it's for women by women and then it gives the description of like you should probably fast food. I love it. Love it and it's like prettier and nicer and it doesn't feel like it doesn't feel like everything takes place in a dungeon like it's like nice and and it's like a lovey dovey like Ha- unless you don't want it to be because don't they rate it on like this you know like you're saying where they'll both say well. This part is not great for women. But yeah the like fast forward of this. And you'll see her and they give the just the descriptions of all this even descriptions alone are enough for me. It'd be like I'm good. Wow that's great so check that out instead of you know we're not sponsored by beliefs they'd like okay so there is a homeless guy who was in his box and He claims that that somebody came and was kicking the box and some drunk guys and so he jumped out and killed one of the guys and and he's now on trial and he's using like I forget the name of it but it's like the homestead act. Where if someone messes with your house then you have every the right to defend it? But don't you have to be a property owner for that like Oh but not an apartment Well this is the think the question becomes what is a home correct correct and that box is his home but is that a satisfactory structure to fit the New York state. Whatever that is a real tough one because even when you were saying that when you said you know there was this homeless man and and he lives in a box and I was gonna say interrupt you and say you mean his home and that was like my instinct to say like well if that the the there were two guys the one that's alive said they didn't know they didn't know anyone was inside the box? That's bullshit it I agree. That's total bullshit. They were just sort of being rowdy. Not Knowing someone didn't sigh absolutely not right to an come on when you're like ooh maybe rowdy I'm GONNA kick this empty not empty and you keep kicking. That's that's a problem with a guy also said they only kicked it once. I don't know let's say they did kick it. They knew it was the man in there And they were being aggressive does account as a house in your mind. Where if someone's coming to threaten you in your home is well because if you say yes to this like anytime that there that they make a decision that's in the judge ruled in this case that added out that that was considered a home or whatever? Yeah then like that's kind of like I don't WanNa be like one of those people who go what's next to animals get married whatever made but then it's like okay. Can I just throw sheet over my head and lay out on your driveway and like this is now my home like what is it does. It is their length of their well. Maybe we could look at it. There's a slippery slope in the other direction. 'cause would attend be a home you know like. Oh yes is in Igloo a home okay. Yeah this is this is a totally like damn because you can't say a home as permanent because you have mobile homes any affect trailers and all that kind of stuff if somebody came in your trailer and acted like that you'd totally have behind you. ooh This is going to be one of those landmark Mark Yadda cases where I am interested to see. I think it's GonNa work. I don't think so either but I I'm torn on whether it should or I totally okay. Great because what's a home man. Yeah so I don't know I just wondered what your thoughts so like. What do do you think I mean if I were in the box in some guys who were drunk and kicking the box I would would want to defend it? I don't know if I would stop okay but lake defending your home because my thought on is like you have the the home. You're you have the right to defend yourself in side your home not like the home itself. The cardboard right. Yes so it almost seems like you're like it's your own safety that true so if he's out maybe felt threatened. I mean someone was kicking. Would it's going to be at. I'm glad I'm not on that. Jury jury yeah that would be. Does it justify murder. Because that's what we're assets were asking. is strong enough to justify murder you would lean towards no no Oh my God this is GonNa stop thinking about this. Oh no tougher. All four Yeah it's a real dilemma What's not a dilemma? Though is when you have to ship something and you don't I feel like.

"Love that. Close Okay so that was series one. Now I and I read a study that said atheists own more cats on churchgoers. Why do you think that might be companionship? Easy really think about why dogs. No I think it's I think it's Oh I maybe it's just because people can have more cats than they can have dogs. Maybe I don't know. It's like the response companionship. Feeling like a sense. There's a sense of belonging her sense of like. I like him so a lot for a lot out of people going to churches like their social connection there there for Sheryl care about them here by other people they you know and so I I I would imagine that. Maybe some of the things that they get from that are those needs to like. Have people care about you or have some in depend when you are are satisfied through their participation in church. Yeah and if you don't participate in that than I would imagine that loneliness is higher I'm not saying that people who are atheists More lonely but I would. I would say that anybody who has a weekly or bi like every twice twice a week social like routine around a bunch of people you know feel similarly early that they do are going to be less lonely than somebody who maybe feels isolated if that atheist were involved in atheist groups and meet ups and all that they probably wouldn't be as I do I. Do you wish there was like a church free because it would be a nice community building experience. The article was claiming though that their theory on why is that cats embody more traits of what we understand God to have. That's a very like you think it's a leap year little bit. But I don't okay. I want to hear there. Who knows I have? No mine could be a leap. Well Y- so you know how cats are often associated with mystical call it. He's like even the Egyptian sort of obsession with cabs grounded in that so so I suppose they do have that I it said if you feed your dog they think your God if you feed a cat. They think they're gonNA that makes so damn that is for sure jrue. Yeah it is and in my mind. I'm like okay. Which is they love? Cats people who like are real easy. Don't like witches. Maybe maybe they don't like how do they feel about brooms. Maybe I'll go to spooky. It may be but dogs are absolutely not mystical and it the mysterious in the in the way that God is. No they're the opposite correct so I get what you see is what you get with those dogs I. I don't I wouldn't have guessed these sort of statistics. I wouldn't have guessed that atheist had more than I would have never guessed that either. Yeah so once you have have finding that doesn't fit what you would hypothesize then you kind of have to work backwards and be like well. Maybe it's because they're god like but I want to ask them. I want to take the same group of if people and give them a new poll and do a assessment of their loneliness. Yeah and if you got information that said people who what a church or less lonely and people who are atheist or more lonely than Kanye just say people who are more lonely like then it'd be interesting to see if people who are lonely tend to have more cats late night the fact finitely That's what I think is the study is really telling us more than anything. So you're making like a correlation should between Loneliness Atheism and PAT ownership. It's event diagram. There's yeah all right right. There might be just a little overlap. I'm not saying there. I'm not saying all this is it's been diagram yes I completely. These are all just theories atheists. I don't get mad at me. You're probably not again. They're not mad if they don't give a shit go to hell right. They don't care okay. Well let me know if you guys think this is hogwash. It's interesting though. It is yeah any any time. There's a difference in groups that you would would not have predicted. It is fun to try to figure and now I also want to know what's the breakdown of males and females because where female atheists and like but ah if you are I would almost argue that there are more male atheists it don't know why but I feel like my instinct tells me that that's it. Yeah but I wonder if like so if there my God I can get really deep. Women are statistically more religious yet so if meant more men are atheists and the atheists men aren't the ones who are owning cats. They're like atheist women who have a whole bunch of the throwing all the numbers off like I need to. I know like are these atheists men because we have talked about how not a lot of men have multiple cats. Yes right so are these. This is the one one area where all of a sudden atheist have more cats and even for the males. I just need to know more need more information and we'll follow up if I get any of that updates okay. Here's the latest hilarious litigation story for you fella who is deaf Sued porn hub Lord because their videos are not close captioned. And what do you think about this lawsuit his death but he's he can he can okay So he wants to know what the fuck these people are saying. And does anybody WanNa know what question you know. What's crazy is like a you know I may have sure roost? Shirker like Ben on porn hub. I've seen a new category. That's popped up that is oh gosh what is it called. It's like something about like vocal explained at like they're they're the scenes are described. It just a description of the audio I there. It's on this category but I wonder if this is that answer like where it might be. I think might be captioned option. So porn hub responded to the lawsuit by saying we have an entire category. That might be it and they're there are like twelve hundred. I don't know twelve thousand. Whatever a lot of videos but like not the one he won correct that one he wants it was something like I didn't write it down? Exactly what is like Steph and punishes her nephew have you or whatever it was something about dialogue to know. I'd never seen capturing like well. I'm watching massage born and nobody's talking and if they are talking. It's a bad massage assange. Don't talk right. Captions will be SPA. Music plays softly in the background. No that'll that's it right right well okay so most people I would think aren't really too concerned about the the plot. I also tireless us but then again they have awards true and for some people that might be the real draw. Well I do like the the topic something. Oh you one talking in her okay. It's almost like talking. Gets me turned on. That's really yeah like yeah but not like bat like you just WanNa story and the same thing happens in movies. They're like I can watch a movie and they'll be like flirty and like sexually suggestive. Okay and you know you know like fired up down there. Well the same with him and he wants equal rights and under the American disabilities fair. Her I do too but it is also funny. It is hilarious but I I'm with him I he's ability. Can you imagine if you were the transcriber. It's hard speaking of which I saw a really interesting thing when I was watching that Aaron Hernandez documentary that you showed me Whoa career readiness. Watch that but this Tanaka Walker. I now don't type the speak into some. Yeah we that weird to see at first I was like. Why did the airline did that did that? It like what are they called. The cabin pressure changed all of a sudden. She just basket everybody else. Nobody else need it or something. But she's like talking into this thing so that's interesting interesting. I almost needed cabin pressure regulation whenever I discovered the Awesomeness of cereal school. Oh well hello you know my new favorite late Night Snack Gumbo John Dr. Sarah gave me a tip about zero school. which is if you take the chocolate? Yes why think are called cocoa. Oh yes and the peanut butter and then you see them dry like a snap yet mixed together to kind of sweet popcorn. That's a great idea. We just have a while. We're watching netflix documentaries. And just well. It's perfect because they are sugar. Free cereals that are designed to be similar to the ones you grew up with but that are like like gross. Because they're naughty and bad for you and they were like trying to get you to be able to scratch that itch without ruining your body and cereal. School is the the answer. So it's great snack. Sarah does or you could have it for breakfast as we traditionally do. It's naturally sweetened and they have the fruity the cinnamon in Bonn peanut butter cocoa all those good flavors great for kids on the go snacking..

Good stuff in there that I was like. Oh my God. I've been listening to that a lot. I hope I just don't go straight. I self compassion Ted. Talk on the podcast today. Well Hey maybe that maybe we need to hear that it was just great. I'm getting good feedback from our listeners. And Book Club members that they are loving it. Maybe like didn't think they will get so much out of it but did yeah stuff like that. So maybe that's kind of okay. Maybe they come for the scat and then they stay. The series is correct. Well that's fine. I did watch a short film. Atlantic has a series of little documentaries. Documenting it was like ten fifteen minutes long usually and there was a really great one of a man who was ninety seven and they were in his house and it's just sort of observing him wake up in the morning and get his clothes on. You know what is all involved when you're of that age for most people but it was so compelling because he's ninety seven years old but he was formerly a philosopher at a university and he had written a book about death and in the book he told people is irrational fear death because there is nothing lights lights out. So you're you should remember that when you're approaching death because there's nothing to fear and it was just trying to see if he still. I felt that way at this age or not because he was seventies when he wrote the book which for most people is of life but ninety seven. There's no question thinks her wind or one foot in the grave ask Philly so it was very moving because he did realized that he started to have those same feelings that most people have of the unknown. And imagine that that you're you can't think the human experience yeah like the existential crisis cars for us all. Yes maybe less so for others but It was just I. I'm very introspective. And I spend a lot of time thinking I wish I could turn it off sometimes but when I observed someone else who is in those spirals of those phones it moves me because then you're like okay. We're we're all in this together. But some of the things that were really special where he had been married for seventy some years to his wife who eventually passed away of course and how lonely he was even at that age and he had had a great life and he felt very blessed but he's just really missed his best friend. Oh it was so sweet yeah And and okay so let me think I wanted to make sure I said some certain things about it He does say he sees the world better now. I I suppose it's zoom out thing you talk about where like eventually you can really look back on everything and take stock of what has happened but he does appreciate things more like he'll he'll go out and look at the leaves and be like where these here all along there so beautiful and I never appreciated them. That's great so it was. It was special. Well maybe that little piece of of fear or whatever it is like humanity. Whatever that is yeah the consequences the product of if that is gratitude or is these things like appreciating your surroundings and so maybe we shouldn't work so hard to turn away away from pain turn away from fear to turn away from something like how scary death would feel because because in doing that it gives birth to these other things like a sense of feeling of gratitude or Mexican or wholeness or what ever ever yeah and that was what a lot of that book was self? Compassion book was about What that suffering equals pain times resistance? Yeah pain as part of the human experience right the more you resist it the more you try to say nope I don't WanNa feel it. Yeah we'll we're would you suffering increase. Yeah 'cause it's human nature say no I don't WanNa feel bad you yeah right right walk through it. That's exactly the lion. She says she got to walk. Look through it cut to go like basically yeah that you got to walk through to get out or something like that says a perfect beneath a video is the description of it it and then it was sort of a a kind of extension because it said after they created this than he did. Pass away and listen to hi. This is his last words. ooh He said. Well that's clear enough. Oh and with an exclamation point in the text and then Why don't we see if we can go up and check it out? I love that. And what do you think he saw the light. I get chills everywhere and we had just gotten done talking near death or like that transition between life and whatever is on the other side and I wonder what he saw. What's clear then you he? He died as we don't. Oh Oh yeah Oh. Oh Wow. That's cool my grandma's last words were look for me in the birds. That's nice and then you do the next day. There was a bird in my house and all the doors all literally in her in my house people. Yeah let me catch it and put it outside. That's the real cryan our Graham. I know it was so nice to come by right. Yeah I told why she did that. Yes you really. We think it's hurt. I D because it's never happened to me ever except the one week after she died in two times. Damn that's good stuff. Yeah and I really can't explain the first time when none of the windows were open. None of the doors were opened. It was six o'clock in the morning. I can explain that. Yeah nobody was home. It's just me six UH Grandma trickster I know Oh God so much stuff I mean yes if you are sort of aging as we are and you WanNa know what's going on in your body who look no further than modern fertility right even if you're not aging if you're young just if you WANNA know how your eggs eggs are in there.

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. So why is that hat. Faxing is familiar technology that people trust the complexities of the Internet and its many offshoots technologies along with endless headlines about hackers spyware aware viruses and data breaches create in many people's minds. A sense that the web just isn't secure. In addition government policies still encouraged faxes and legal processes like discovery of evidence. Lean heavily on paper documents. Doctors backs prescriptions and private documents and patient records fax machines. are a habit and it's a habit that is hard because it's a simple low tech interoperable system that anyone can use just a few minutes of training also fax x machines like the aforementioned roaches are evolving with the times the people surveyed by. IDC said that the biggest reason for the increase in faxing was axing was now integrated. I graded with email as digital faxing and so was easier to use A. We spoke by email. Todd Johnson DR at Access Family Medicine in Lincoln Nebraska. Aska he said `I office notes prescriptions lab data orders and consultation requests affects anything else. It's requested I would email just as easily but I don't have a general email account to send the requested information to typically usually. I'm only provided with fax number to return requested information. Johnson Johnson says that the newest generation of digital faxing mixes workflow fairly easy quote. I don't use a feed and fax paper machine. I can facts from any of my computers tablet habit smartphone. I use them because I'm requested to use them by other facilities they're easy to use and now electronically configured into my phone system. I just drag and drop a pdf into the fax x Portal and away.

All everybody you've ever known or wanted to talk to pictures of you everything. Do you have a yours totally backed up pretty much?

But I did find out that either was my laptop somehow both maybe they exist in the same thing fellow ended his home when I oh my God. If I were to lost either one of them like the rest of the world. I'd be screwed. Yeah. You know, how did we exists before them? You know, with little pieces of paper tucked away in drawers that had a phone number warning or whatever everybody carried a pigeon, right? You just send a pigeon, and then it would come back and give you a new message. And that's what we did up until two thousand everybody had a pigeon advertisers, watching on the waterfront, which has a major. Brand new key pigeons up on the rooftop, and it's kind of like a Twitter Marlon Brando and all of his that was the very first Twitter get that what else? It was only what a couple of days ago. Then I reported this Mike, you know, the Montreal Canadians were at one point called the Montreal Wanderers Wanderers. So wander a great name. Let's go wonder I it's it's the most bizarre name ever over sports team. But apparently they also had another name other than the Canadians state one hundred nineteen years ago. That's how long standing around, by the way. The Montreal shamrocks won the Stanley Cup. I did not see that one coming. Well, I'll accept that before I accept. Oh. Shamrocks is better than Wanderers. I guess Wanderers is just you think of me, I guess the feeling of it was different than but now you think of like homeless people think vagrancy guys with the the sack on a stick over the shoulder which was their logo that was their loan. I'm kidding. What? It sounds like no one else is a what I guess at that point. Maybe it was like a loose pioneer kind of reference. I should bring my daughter in for this one. Because my my daughter abra claims cheese, the greatest driver in the world. But it was on this day and nine thousand nine hundred eight that the mayor of Cincinnati, okay? The mayor's Cincinnati stood before city cancel and announce that women are not physically fit to drive automobiles home like, and then I grew up in an era where you would hear that phrase drive, like a woman woman driver. Effort that growing up. Yeah. Yeah. And in favor which industry right now, she would be flipping out because she thinks she's the greatest driver in the world.

Why Youre Bad at Fact-Checking, Reducing Anxiety with Horror Movies, and Why Urine is Yellow
"Today. You'll learn about an illusion that shows how your brain processes information white peas yellow and how watching horror movies can help reduce exile eighty but satisfy some curiosity on the award winning curiosity daily. We've got three trivia questions for you. Are you ready question one? How many of each animal did Moses take on the ark question to what's the nationality of Thomas, Edison? The inventor of the telephone question three. What were the first words uttered by Louis Armstrong when he set foot on the moon? Let's recap and see how you did. How many of each animal did Moses take on the ark you said to? But Moses didn't take animals on the ark. That was Noah for number two. What's the nationality of Thomas Edison, the inventor of the telephone? You might have said American, but Thomas Edison, didn't invent the telephone that was Alexander Graham Bell. And what were the first words uttered by Louis Armstrong when he set foot on the moon? Your answer might have been one small step for man. But that answer is a giant leap. Louis Armstrong is a legendary trumpet player whose name is actually pronounced Lewis. Well, he he pronounce his own name Lewis. Yeah. Let me go. Neil Armstrong was the first man in the moon. So why did the questions fool you? It's all in how your brain processes information. This bit of trickery is called the Moses solution, and it shows how bad you are at picking up on eyars in your everyday life. Researchers I came up with it in one thousand nine hundred eighty one study where more than eighty percent of participants missed the problem with the Moses question studies show that illusions like this can lead people to pick up false information about the world's. Fortunately, there's one way around this. When people are asked to play facts checker and correct errors as they read their much less likely to pick up false information than people who just read what they're given. The takeaway is that if you assume anything you hear or. Or read could be wrong than you'll be more likely to notice when it is. But you can rest assured that we check all our facts on this podcast, the award-winning curiosity monthly we all see the same sky and ask why is the sky blue? But we also all go to the bathroom. So how can we never ask? Why is our P yellow lucky for you? We're science nerds. So we've got some answers, and they might tell you something about your health long story short urine his yellow because of a chemical called euro billon or euro chrome. Here's the deal. Your body has a massive amount of red blood cells. But they don't last very long before the need to be washed out of your system. Even after they've passed their expiration dates red blood cells contain iron, white blood cells gobble up that iron to keep it in your body. And then they did that ex red blood so rapper that's called Bill Rubin. Some of that Bill Rubin heads, dear kidneys, your kidneys. Suck out valuable nutrients and transform that Bill Rubin into a molecule that happens to be yellow the. Mount of water in your body can dilute that chemical which is why are urine can means from crystal clear to a deep amber color, so very generally speaking. That's why the more clear your urine is the more hydrated. You are if it's deeper yellow or amber or Honey coloured, then you might want to hydrate a little more, and if it's neon yellow, then you might have excess riboflavin in your system, which means you probably just popped a multivitamin or you drink and energy, drink, really. Yep. Other non yellow colors or possible. And we are not medical professionals. So don't panic, but you might want to see a doctor if it comes out brownish pink or reddish, orange or even blue in green. That's actually a thing that can happen with certain rare genetic diseases and fizzy nece or foaming this can happen sometimes too if it's just fizzy once in a while, then it's probably a harmless hydraulic effect. If it's regularly foaming than it could be kidney problems or excess protein in your diet. say a good horror movie to stimulate your next date night.

"Nine as what's happening how are you this week Alexander Graham Bell bestowed that. Now back in nineteen, can't fill in the second half of that a lot of people. Don't know this but Alexander Graham Bell was your. Great great great great uncle Phone number I'm doing good man it's nice to. Have you back on the program Africa couple of weeks and. Really some guitar, information today a lot of things, going on in the market right now a lot of things. Are going on with what. You're watching, in the news so I. Think we're gonna hit hit some good stuff well let's take those. Hard hitting news items that you just mentioned and put those on the shelf for just a. Moment, we'll talk about those later on in the. Show but I wanted to actually start out today with a more. Philosophical conversation and here's what I mean we're talking about knowing yourself and why. It's important to know yourself from a financial standpoint so Socrates said that the. Unexamined life is not worth living and of course when it comes to financial planning we want to examine ourselves and ponder some of these questions I'm. Going to throw out so? Isaac I'll give you the question you can explain maybe how some of your clients would answer. Moore having answered these questions and why, it's important for folks to be asking. These. Questions. Of. Themselves Starting with this what financial. Issues do, I really worry about what keeps me up at night well I, want you to hear. Me out so so many of you and if you're listening right now you're around people socially you're around. Different influencing type of let's call it people around you every. Day and sometimes they have a different let's call it thermostat point on what. Really triggers them when it comes to any financial issue. And, I just want you to take this minute here think about yourself personally and your financial issue worries you may be. Very different than your friend that may be influencing, you to say take more risk maybe influencing you to say let's start. You know a new business, and maybe you don't feel that's going to be the case maybe they're saying hey it's. Time to retire but you're not even certain what that means. In terms of, how you're going to get your, financial ducks in a row there's a lot of things that what I will tell you. Is when, it comes to what is. Personally keeping you up at night and I will tell you many. Of the families we serve it's really even though they may say to their friends and family We're willing to do ABC, they don't wanna lose money and that's the bottom line I'm not saying that. There, is a way to do that when you're in the stock market but there's a way to minimize, risk and there's a, way to be able to influence, let's call it key aspects of your monthly. Income your budget and making certain. That if you were to lose money the scenario that asked the all too often that I, think makes the most sense is making certain that whatever. Money you would lose, would not have this drastic. Effect either on your lifestyle or even on your discretionary expenses we have families that, come in that, are paying the bills month, much fun, have accumulated, large amount of money we're seeing more higher net worth families because what they. Want us to, minimize, the IRS that's keeps, them up at night they think that you know we've had new tax law changes so I just want to throw that. Out at you there's no answer that I can provide you over the over the program today when I'm asking you personally how do, you feel but what I will tell you start listening to.

"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.
