Lord vote is that is like sometimes you can call me alfred. But if not unless you're my friend. I think he's both yes. Okay well anyway here. I got cabbages radishes. Green beans and more.

I like vegetables just fine. Oh gosh so. Our topic for the day is vegetables and there are many of them and they are weird. And there's so much to know about vegetables. But i guess i was wondering if sorry you could tell me because this is a topic of much debate among the people of the world. What the fuck is a vegetable. Basically we use vegetables as a catch all term to mean plants that we eat. But then we're like but not a fruit at fruit is like a plant that we eat. That tastes good. So fruit has a botanical definition yes. Biologists and scientists can point to an ovum of plant. That.

"Her reimagined her as a more positive force. The Tidal Lady of the lake is thought to refer to two different people in this version, one of whom is called neum way who is seen as heroic and characterizes her magical powers as gifts granted to her by God indicating the growing religious values and concerns of the era in Malory's version, the unnamed lady of the Lake gives King Arthur the famed caliber sword at a lake in exchange for an unspecified promise, he must later fulfill. Later Nim way becomes one of King Arthur's key advisers, and it is she who is reunited with the magical weapon when he becomes fatally wounded. Her evolution in later depictions. More than three hundred years later, the Scottish novelist Walter Scott drew on the legends for inspiration in his eighteen ten poem titled The Lady of the Lake. A Romance Story that departs from the original myths and transplants, the story to the Scottish highlands, but it was English poet Alfred Lord Tennyson 's retelling of the legends of King Arthur in idylls of the king, a cycle of twelve narrative poems, published between eighteen, fifty, nine and eighteen, eighty, five, that firmly tarnished the Lady of the lakes character. Like Mallory Tennyson split the overall figure of the lady into to in a poem, dedicated to the relationship between Merlin and Vivien. She is portrayed as a wily temptress, trying to seduce I the king, and then Merlin with the villainous intentions of trapping, the sorcerer and destroying the kings round table. In, a second interpretation of figure reaches up from a lake on the island of Avalon to retrieve excalibur from one of King. Arthur's knights. Idols is widely thought to be an allegory for Victorian society and the reversal of strict gender roles in the story of Merlin and Vivien is designed to show the havoc that untamed women could wreak. Some more recent interpretations have been more favourable to the lady of the Lake novels including Mary Stuart's the last enchantment, nineteen, seventy, nine and Marion Zimmer Bradley's The mists of Avalon Nineteen, eighty-three have sought to show more well rounded representations of her and other female characters from the Arthur Murray and legends, and in Meg, Cabot, two, thousand, five, young, adult, novel Avalon High The lady of the lake is loosely reinterpreted in the form of Ellie, a heroic high school student. depictions of the lady have spanned across mediums to in the two thousand eight twenty twelve television series Merlin. The witch name way served as the primary antagonist and in Guy Ritchie's twenty seventeen fantasy film King Arthur. Legend of the sword. The lady features in a minor role in returning Excalibur to Arthur. How cursed moves the Lady of the lakes story forward. Continuing in the tradition of more recent re imaginings of the Lady of the lakes, role cursed positions Nimmo way as the protagonist, and gives her a more nuanced character beyond the enchanted who gave King Arthur, his sword, we see a young someway taunted by the other children in her village for the strength of her magical powers. We see a young NIM way. Taunted by other children in her village for the strength of her magical powers, and when she is chosen by mystical forces, known as the hidden to become her people's protector and leader. She tries to run away and escape the responsibility. When Nim ways, village is the target of a brutal attack by the Red Paladins Christian crusaders intent on ridding the land of magical folk who smuggles the sword of power to her, and asks as her dying wish that Nimh way give the sword to Merlin. During her quest to bring the mystical sword to the chief sorcerer, Nimmo way crosses paths with Arthur. A lowly aspiring night turned mercenary, whose family has fallen on hard times, and develops a fearsome reputation as the wolf blood witch intent on vengeance her people..

"Oh possibly the emperor june thomas is here. I just wanna it'd be clear felix that this is not a podcast. It's just a precursor to see if i might be open to podcasting perfect okay one of these days. I'm gonna teach you about off. The record means okay but june is is a is a poor knife def- who doesn't really understand the ways of the world <hes> you who brought in a piece of paper. What is your piece of paper. It is a printout of the poem when you lucy's by alfred lord tennyson which clearly is the key to all of succession. I'm so into this because when we're getting a little ahead of ourselves in this episode so but a certain point logan brings back frank and he gives me watch and on the back of the watch is a quotation from this poem. I believe it says some work of noble note may yet be done and of course i mean that immediately suggested to me ulysses by alfred lord tennyson is indeed a poem. It's kind of poem poem about <hes> a lion in winter and <hes> kind of raging against the light and getting one less deal before you get snuffed out. That's logan. I i did not realize that it was tennyson because there was all of that talk before he got invited back to the corporate retreat in hungarian schloss schloss of shakespeare something so i just assumed it was shakespeare line. I didn't know <hes> but it's not now and it's my my in depth research. You know google google and just before we came into the studio reveal that tennis naturally wrote this after a close friend died so it's about the end of life but it was written fifty years before tenison died so it's maybe a little bit premature but you know you go and franco's knew it. He likes he immediately recited. The following line is kind of like you know subtle flex this charming fuck that he is yeah. That's why he's been brought in again because he's going to trump goes pierces so session we start at the top and make our way to that beautiful. We're gonna make away at that point and we can. We can speculate about the real life equivalents of frank <hes> but yeah <hes> this is pretty much the the darkest cruelest. I episode of succession. I think i've ever seen yes. Oh yeah i mean the episode is called hunting and ostensibly. That's a reference to the retreat but really this episode is about logan hunting for snakes and rats and his house and finding those who betrayed him and it's the opening scene is greg june. Dan was alluding to sitting with the journalists saying you know we're not meeting. This is just a precursor to me. Dang i want to jump in here. Of course we're just going to be like quoting lines to hold on my think. My favorite line of the entire episode comes right to talk about greg says i'm a time pressed executive. Yes of of course he's very important and i think i think she reassures him. At some point she says i know you've been in many meetings many things but i feel like greg trek has this one line which sort of sets up the whole episode essentially when he he calls his uncle logan he calls him scary addictive paranoid and violent and basically that's what this episode is. That's what the big scene build stu godless. Is it foreshadowing. Maybe a little foreshadowing a little bit of foreshadowing hearing episode three. I don't think it's too self aggrandizing to hope. I might have some wisdom to part..

"Eight eight eight four one one one. You know, some relationships end and some seem to end more easily than others. I was in sixth grade, and I had a girlfriend her name was Catherine, and we really made our relationship official when at the end of office grade year we couple skated holding hands at the local skating rink. Unfortunately, then we went onto sixth grade that was middle school and in middle school things would different in middle school. There was this guy named Ben and he jailed his hair and before I knew it. I was climbing into the school bus when one of Catherine's friends ran up and told me that Catherine would be breaking up with me because Catherine was now going with Ben. It seems to me that after you've couple skated with someone the decent thing to do is to at least break up with him face to face, but Katherine didn't see it that way. And just like that the relationship was over. It was less simple for a friend of mine in eighth grade. She called up her boyfriend Steve to deliver the bad news. That they would be breaking up. But oh, Steve he saw common a mile away and wasn't about to let this relationship in. So he had this boys to men song playing in the background when she called till the. The road girl. I can't let you go it, son. Matt to roll you be long to me be long to you. Now that song playing this break-up wasn't so easy. And maybe the break-up should never be easy. Maybe the break-up should always be hard. There was a time. When a group of fair came to Jesus to test him, they asked is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife. This is a significant question because what divorce meant back in the time of Jesus was that a man could drop his existing family to start a new family in a time when only men could work and own property. So if he decided that he would rather start another family he could just write her a certificate of divorce and can move on from that I family as though nothing had ever happened. He just hand her that certificate of divorce on her way up into the school bus, and it was over. She and her children would be without a home without a source of income, and without an honest name to make their way in the world. So Jesus said to them. Because of your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce so easily, but if to have become one flesh, you really think they can ever be separated again. Do you really think a man can just walk away as though nothing ever happened? Do you really believe that a man can just pretend that the children never happened that the life? He made didn't really happen that he can just hit the reset button and start all over again. You know what? Some people do. But not so with God. Your lesson from the book of Hosea as among the most beautiful in the bible. But not only is the passage beautiful. It's powerful in the sense that the prophet Hosea is married to a prostitute. And he is married to this prostitute to illustrate his point that if God is married to us. Then it is a marriage just like holy prophet being married to a prostitute. That if God is married to me that if God is married to you. It is like a holy prophet being married to a prostitute. Certainly any Pharisee would have approved should God have wanted to issue a certificate of divorce given our condition. Hosea won't divorce his wife Gomer the prostitute. Even though she keeps returning back to the brothel despite who he's married to Hosea like our God just won't let the relationship end. And bible studies on this passage. I've heard women and men identify with God as the divine takes on even more human or superhuman attributes in the eleventh chapter. Several years ago. A woman named MRs Jane Edwards pronounced that. This is a mother talking here in Hosea. When Israel was a child. I loved him. And out of Egypt. I called my son. But the mock called them the more they went from me yet. It was I who taught f frame to walk. I took them up in my arms. I was to them. Like those who lift infants to their cheeks. This does sound like a mother to me or grandmother. The gone of grandmother who loves her grandson so much. That's even loves the little greasy handprints. They leave all over her sliding glass doors and won't clean them off because of how much she loves the greasy little hands who put them there, the kind of mother who can't help. But by the little cheeks of her daughter. Smell that little smell that only comes from her baby girl? The kind of mother a grandmother or father or grandfather who are members lining up the Cheerios on the couch cushions. So that the baby would pull up and shuffled down step by step cheerio cheerio until little Israel could walk. And the couch. Is still there years later even in those days when he doesn't come around because he has other people to impress. The couch is still there even in those days when the baby now grown seems to thank only of himself. The couch is still there. Even if he falls farther and farther down the pit of drugs or alcohol crime indiscretion all God still looks at that couch and remembers the baby we used to be even if we've forgotten who we ever were a walk so far away from the light that we can't see all way back home. And this moment. It's easy for us to believe that God, God, be lock our sixth grade girlfriend considering all the wrong, we've done it's easy to believe that God will just issue us a Bill of divorce and be done with us. So I've known plenty of be bull who've been to church their whole lives completely sure that they're going to hell. The only question is how soon. But we read here in Hosea God, saying something different. My people are bent on turning away from me. But how can I give you up? How can I hand you over? My heart recalls within me, my compassion grows. Warm and tender for I am God. And no, mortal. I believe that too often. We misunderstand. But love really is an essay. So because I'm misunderstand it all the time. Last july. My mom sent me a birthday card and on the front of the card is this little boy with his bike helmet on. And he's pushing his little blue bike up a gravel road and the card says son sometimes I find myself smiling. Just remembering something you said when you were little and as a big part of me that expected to open that card to read the words, but then you became a teenager, and you hurt me again and again and again. But instead, you know, what the card said. And today, I just hope you know, how very much I love you. And how grateful I am to call. You must son. Now, that's kind of a miraculous card. But this kind of miracle isn't so far away. And I say that because I know there are some of you who have known friends who cut ties with you. Maybe even friends that you've had to cut ties with their maybe children who you still love. But you don't ever see? Parents who you loved at one time and wonder if you still do there may be wives listening now who have been issued that certificate of divorce tossed aside, like yesterday's news and their husbands listening who have loved and lost and monitor that poet, Alfred Lord Tennyson that he's crazy thinking that. It's better to have loved and laws. Never to have loved it. All. I know that there are people here. Don't feel worthy of the love of God because they've learned about divine love based on human love. But the love of God is more. And the God who wants lifted you up to his cheek who've been down to you and fed. You can't just walk away. You see we're talking here about a love that will not let me go a grace greater than all sin. The love of a father who waits at the window praying to see his prodigal, son return home. Like Jose here is quoting that great. Sam Cooke song when he sings to the woman who treated him bad, but still he sings if you ever change your mind about leaving leaving me behind old bring it to me bring your sweet love and bring it on home to me. Because we're talking here about the love of God who can't just walk away from the baby who learned to walk in her den, regardless of the mistakes that he's made or the man he's become. And I say this is gone. According to the book of Hosea. But is this you. Is this me? Having been loved like this by the living. God. Can we love like this while we are living? Can we begin to forgive the ones who hurt us the most? Because if God is in the business of giving us, what Justice would it be for you or me to just go around cutting people off. Can we let go of the old hurts? And I say we should. Because for you and me God already has. Because of this wondrous love we have to stop moving on. And even if there's no going back to the way things used to be remember, those strong, modes of Dr Martin Luther King junior. I have decided to stick with love hate is too. Great a burden to bear. So having received the love of God. The amazing miraculous divine love of God. We must all be so bold to embody the words of Colossians seeking what is above putting to death, whatever in you is earthly loving not as the world loves but loving as God loves. We must get.

And today, I just hope you know, how very much I love you. And how grateful I am to call. You must son. Now, that's kind of a miraculous card. But this kind of miracle isn't so far away. And I say that because I know there are some of you who have known friends who cut ties with you. Maybe even friends that you've had to cut ties with. There may be children who you still love. But you don't ever see? Parents who you loved at one time and wonder if you still do there may be wives listening now who have been issued that certificate of divorce tossed aside like yesterday's news. And that their husbands listening who have loved and lost and monitor that poet, Alfred Lord Tennyson that he's crazy thinking that. It's better to have loved and lost the never to have loved it. All. I know that there are people here. Don't feel worthy of the love of God because they've learned about divine love based on human love. But the love of God is more. And the God who wants lifted you up to his cheek who been down to you and fed. You can't just walk away. You see we're talking here about a love that will not let me go a grace greater than all sin. The love of a father who waits at the window praying to see his prodigal, son return home. As like Jose here is quoting that great. Sam Cooke song when he sings to the woman who treated him bad, but still he sings if you ever change your mind. About leaving leaving me behind all bring it to me. Bring your sweet love and bring it on home to me. Because we're talking here about the love of a God who can't just walk away from the baby who learned to walk in her den, regardless of the mistakes that he's made or the man he's become. And I say that this is gone. According to the book of Hosea. But is this you. Is this me? Having been loved like this. By the living. God. Can we love like this? Wow. We are living. Can we begin to forgive the ones who hurt us the most? Because if God is in the business of forgiving us. What Justice would it be for you or me to just go around cutting people off? Can we let go of the old hurts? And I say we should. Because for you and me God already has. Because of this wondrous love we have to start moving on. And even if there's no going back to the way things used to be remember, those strong, modes of Dr Martin Luther King junior. I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too. Great a burden to bear. So having received the love of God. The amazing miraculous divine. Love of God, we must all be so bold to embody the words of Colossians seeking what is above pudding today breath, whatever in you is earthly loving not as the world loves but loving as God loves. We must.

"And ultimately you're talking about astronaut data that is limited visual stimuli. That's right. But then again, I, I also don't want to go over the edge and be too dismissive because you've got a lot of reports over the years, a lot of deniable and again, getting back to that, that very important point that whatever it is the. We're just we were just to assume yes, there is was an ashen light on Venus, like you said, it is clearly not observable all the time. So it's not something that can be a is really tested as say the idea of canals on Mars which will get to in a bit, right? So if it does exist, I think we should transition to talk about if it does exist, what could explain it? What would match the descriptions? People see what kind of light could be shining off of the nighttime side Venus. And I think clearly clearly the best explanation for the ashen light comes to us from the verion astronomer and physician FRANZ von Paula growth from who you lived from seventeen seventy four eighteen fifty two. And he was, you know, it seems to me, he wasn't a dummy, but he was obsessed with space aliens. Oh yeah, he was. He was the real deal. He was a major contributor of the day to field of urology and with authority, which is. The the treatment and removal of gallstones b.'s oars and kidney stone. Nice. We, we discussed all three of these on our stone of madness episode did a few years back. So he developed key technologies that helped make bladder stone removal safer and less likely to result in the horrible death of the patient. As we discussed in that stone of madness episode, not only kidney stones, painful ordeals, but the the methods of treating and removing them. They had kneeled as we're just barbarric. So there was a very high mortality rate for surgical intervention and growth house and helped change that. He helped establish the technologies that allow the the fields to evolve and for people to to engage in the treatment of various stones without without facing down death quite as often. Right. So so real physician not a dummy? Yeah, not a dummy. He was highly influential in his field during his life. He went onto write hundreds of scientific articles and number of books that covered various topics in the field of natural sciences. So he, you know, he was something of a renaissance man in that regard, and he was he was a legitimate Mer. Yeah. He became professor of strana me at the university of Munich in eighteen twenty six. So again, very bright guy. No mere, amateur. He didn't just pick up a telescope and say, hey, the ashen light. I'm gonna write a book about it. He knew what he was talking about. But at the same time, I think it could definitely be argued that he, he. He can gauge with with astronomy with a certain imagination, nothing wrong with imagination, but you should remember the difference between imagination and good theory. Yeah. So for starters, he believed earth's moon was habitable which is not a crazy thing to to think there are people today who think that that yes, given appropriate technology, we could live on the moon and and certainly wasn't all that unusual back then a lot of thought, stuff like this, but what's more. He also dented what he took to be structures on the moon. He thought he observed a vast city, and even when ahead and called it Volver. Wasn't that a craft Virk album. It could be. It could also be a great name for a metal band. There you go. We've already hit another possible suggestion there. So again, he's he's, he's not a nobody. He's making this this this claim. And if he says they're cities on the moon, even one called velvet work. People people take the senior. They took notice this certain amount of sensation ensued. I mean cities on the moon, right? Yeah. So the the notion resonated through the media of the day through the culture of the day, influencing the literary world and not just early Sifi. It laid the seeds for the nineteenth and twentieth century telescope sightings of canals on Mars, which will discuss more in a bit which greatly influenced our perception of the red planet and continues to sort of color are our perception and expectations of the planet Mars? Yeah. It also again influenced literature. Alfred Lord Tennyson a wrote of these Lou. Owner cities in his poem Timbuktu..
