"But I guess the other thing I would say just about luck, absolutely luck played a big role in coinbase. I mean, there were certain moments early on in our history where if a coin had flipped the other way, we might not be here. I think we got very lucky with the timing of when the company decided to launch and when crypto decided to grow. I think that I kind of just kept trying and things until eventually one of them hit, right? Which is it's a way of unifying those two ideas. It's definitely a lot of luck when it works. But if you just keep trying, you can kind of make your own look. That's Brian Armstrong, cofounder, and CEO of coinbase. Recently, Forbes ranked Brian number one on its crypto rich list. Magazine estimated his net worth to be more than 6 and a half $1 billion. By the way, there's so much suspicion around cryptocurrency. Why do they call it crypto? An encrypto just sounds so dodgy in secret, like what do they call it like transparency currency or something like that? You know, it's funny because in the early days, I had always thought about that too, and I was like, we should call it digital currency. Digital currency sounds better than crypto, but you know, you can't control these things, like the Internet and the memes of the world. They just spread, you know, and they get away from you sometimes. So that's what it ended up being called. Hey, thanks so much for listening to the show this week.

"Hey, welcome back to how I built this. I'm guy raz. So it's mid 2012. Brian Armstrong launches his cryptocurrency startup coinbase and users start to sign up. And he's going through the Y Combinator program solo because things didn't work out with his first partner Ben. So Brian is still searching for a cofounder and he reaches out to a number of different people, but finding the right fit? Is not easy. You know, I was kind of scarred honestly from this cofounder, search process. I was like, oh my gosh, you know, try to meet so many people and it never seemed to work out. Maybe I'm just resigned to being a solo founder, and that's my lot in life. And so I was like, let me just keep making progress on the business. So I went through the Y Combinator program, solo, we went out and I tried to raise a seed round after that. And I got a lot of no 9 nose for every one yes, but I managed to scrape together a 600 K, seed round. And then I was in the early stages of trying to launch the buy feature on coinbase. And lo and behold, the right person reached out to me. Which happened to be Fred erson. And he reached out called just over email. I had been putting out the prototype for coinbase on an I think he saw it on Reddit. He had posted it on Reddit on a Bitcoin board. Yeah. And by the way, I think there's an important lesson I've told a lot of people this, which is to how to find the right cofounder..

"armstrong" Discussed on Monocle 24: Meet the Writers
"This is monocle reads on Georgina Godwin, , and today I'm speaking to sue Armstrong Science writer broadcaster and a foreign correspondent. . He's worked everywhere from Brussels to South Africa. . She's been a consultant writer for the World Health Organization for more than twenty five years and written extensively on all areas of health and science. . Her latest book is borrowed time the Science of how and why we age. . Sue Welcome to the program. . Thank you very much and be with you if we could start with a really basic question what is aging? ? You say it's a really basic question. . It's a very good question but I mean, that's , it's really difficult to know because there lots of different definitions and they keep changing over the years. . Very interesting. . Actually some people say, , Oh, , it's dying from the inside out some people say it's genetically driven. . Some people say it's just wear and tear some people actually even go far as to say aging is a disease and I remember the first time I heard somebody say that I wrote my eyes and thought. . Oh goodness. . It's like everything else like birth and things like that. . The scientists are coming in and medicalising the whole thing. . But in fact, , I came round to seeing their point of view on that to quite an extent by the end of my interviewing and so on. . But basically, , it happens to all of us but one of the great mysteries of aging is the fact that you look at a whole range of different species in so many different lifespans including some creatures. . which seemed to be almost immortal things like that it'll hydra that we used to find when in pond water and look at under the microscope and sort of early biology lessons and so on. . I'm to be almost immortal. . So it's to a great extent. . It's a mystery and there are still quite a number of different theories of what exactly it is. . So let's look at the impact that it has on the body and the diseases that is ultimately responsible for. . Yes I think going back to this whole question about what is aging. . This also comes down to the diseases I think the definition that's most or the explanation that's most widely accepted at the moment is one called. . The disposable Soma theory, , which basically translates into ordinary language as built in obsolescence, , and how it works is this that it takes an awful lot of energy and resources to build and maintain a body such as and in the end nature doesn't care about US individuals are tall nature. . Whole purpose is to ensure the survival of the species, , not us as individuals, , and so most of the effort goes into ensuring that our Jones sells the sperm and the are immortal and can get passed on from one generation to the next and our bodies nature's invested in the sort of. . Mechanisms for repair and maintenance to keep us going to we've grown up being able to pass on our genes and bring up the next generation nurture the next generation to it's on its feet, , and then after that may Chazan got too much use for us and the repair mechanisms in our body, , which is I say are extremely expensive in terms of resources and so on. . Resources would have been very difficult to come by in our earliest for our earliest ancestors, , those sort of rundown, , and it is the gradual loss of maintenance inefficiency of maintenance and repair that seems to be at the root of aging. . So now, , a lot of the research seems to be lumped in with pseudoscience, , snake oil cosmetics, , and so on. . Why do you think that is? ? Well I think. . That's been a terrible problem for Gerontology, , the actual science of aging because it is lumped in and it's got to be stigmatized by the snake oil salesman and saw and I think very basic this since time immemorial I mean, if , you look back over centuries, , people have always wanted to find the Elixir of youth and I think to a certain extent. . It's that life is so rich and sweet. . That people can't bear the idea of dying and a also as a as a species. . We're fairly arrogant. . We don't like to think that we are awful and I think it's it's been the search for immortality. . This has given the Gerontology a bad name and you know it's it's really it's really a very sad because aging is massively important because you were just asking a minute ago about the diseases. . Of Aging, , and as I said earlier, , there's some people actually call aging itself disease, , and this is because the diseases that we know that we recognize very much age related things like heart disease and dementia and cancers, , and diabetes, , and strokes, , and frailty the single biggest risk factor for all of these these diseases that we recognize very much as diseases voltage is the aging process itself. . It's literally sort of. . Wearing away of the body that gives rise to these diseases, , and so you could save the diseases of old age are in a way just the sort of points on a spectrum, , the most the most obvious and severe points on a spectrum of what is a generally debilitating and pathological process, , which is the aging process.

"As long as there's been bike racing, there's been. In bike racing. In the nineteen o four, Tour de France the second year, the race was held.

Pharmaceutical techniques by the nineteen nineties. The Tour de France was more of a medical operation than a sporting event.

Rise wasn't fueled by sophisticated training methods, intense desire or good, old American pluck. It was powered by the most sophisticated doping ring of all time..

S. citizens I'm see those of the same well Hey it's it's in the eye of the beholder trump not releasing his taxes didn't bother me in the least neither one bother me the taxes or the medical records all right than mine but Berta soul Bloomberg's campaign manager text it out yesterday the opposition research on Bernie Sanders could fill a building more or less it is very damaging perhaps even disqualifying that's a heck of a thing to throw out there the day before debate yes so I don't know maybe they'll stand there and play nice tonight like they often doing debates but god I think they're the I think there were heading toward may be an epic we've never seen it before on a debate stage sort of mean clash mud slinging and be exciting I think they probably have research that shows you don't want to come off as vicious on a debate stage because it ends up looking bad when must be it a a because I can't believe these people are chickens a lot of Amer soulless we left our Bernie's national press secretary saying Bloomberg had multiple heart attacks which is either true or not I don't know I don't know that much about the bony Breaux's that keep coming up and how mean they are on Twitter I don't follow that world but I guess the pretty vicious and E. L. and by who's been talking about that there's there's there's a number of different ways this could turn very ugly tonight well a couple of less than bottom level Bernie staffers have been outed as encouraging in justifying violence if Bernie doesn't get the nomination I'm not saying that's the mainstream Bernie supporter but whenever you're talking about a revolution and how anybody who's against you is are sub human not we shouldn't be alive you know just really demonizing your opponent you're gonna get the maniacs who want violence the anti NT four types and they're a hell of a lot of those people who are for Bernie right now so yeah the the Bernie pros doesn't refer to your main street followers it refers to some really brutal people who think and the means are justified by the ends well I'd say they hate Bloomberg if you've got Oppel research that could fill a building on Bernie Sanders I don't know why you wouldn't dump a little of it tonight sure dish ma'am two polls have come out in the last twelve hours Bernie's got giant double digit leads over everybody he is vote guy so I don't know what you're waiting for everybody if you're not gonna get into it right we have breaking baseball news breaking news actually this is.

"Armstrong and getting the best out Armstrong and Daddy never in the Grateful Dead I tried a couple times and just couldn't figure out what all the hubbub was listen and just kind of put it out of my mind I just stay in whatever I tried that I don't think it that's fine and a big lots of things but I got a friend who's an enormous that at and then I've become a big fan of the Grateful Dead through John Mayer that did a weird way to end up back in it but so now I've gotten into it then going backwards to some of the older stuff and listen at whatever but anyway so John Mayer is now with with the the Grateful Dead they call themselves dead in company and they're touring and it's the it's by far the most critically and financially successful thing they've done since Jerry Garcia died not even close to some of their other things that they've attempted point of fact I would like to have gone to the show on the plate Friday and Saturday night to kick off this year's touring and they were not too far from me hour plus drive I could've been there but my wife doesn't really allow for that but so it with the wonders of technology I logged on to YouTube and watch the first set live with fantastic sound and video and everything like that wow it's cool that they can do that now I did a little reading about the the two were the Grateful Dead this is this is what you know the whole baby boomer thing is done to music with an average ticket price of two hundred dollars almost two hundred dollars not quite but almost average ticket price and they sold forty thousand tickets over the weekend in these two concerts that's the only all for two nights in Mountain View California not even a particularly big twice but arm eight million dollars and how they get split up with everybody but now they're playing the Hollywood Bowl letting tonight tomorrow night or whatever but they're doing lots of shows that a lot of money going wow that's amazing yeah man I'm it it's well you know what it's it's crazy it's the free market work there are plenty of bands that are absolutely wonderful but the fan base is think in two hundred dollars sounds like my rent now not a concert tickets so they just they could never ever charge that that's wild why get it though I'm I'm totally fine with that and the most infamous examples probably of the the Hamilton tickets in New York that Lin Manuel or Maranda finally decided scalpers are getting six hundred Bucks a ticket seven eight nine hundred dollars ticket screw it that's what we're charging why would give the scalper most of the yeah that's that's really go anywhere this side tickets for people couldn't afford him too which is cool gesture but that's a really good point because you're going to think you know my my favorite actor or whoever does your into a sold out because our charge so much if the tickets will go for that much why should scalpers kingdom right and if they will go for that much the we'll go that much others that many people willing to spend on average twenty dollars to see that the dead in company if you're charging eighty dollars a ticket they would just get sold of those people right exactly and then like I said it's it's not like a theoretical concept if the market will bear thousand dollars per ticket everybody with the three hundred dollar ticket will say I'm gonna make seven hundred dollars and they'll sell their tickets I don't you know at this point my life and have to make a hell of a lot to give up like I don't know some coveted ticket that I was really excited about but did you have had some Grateful Dead connections on commercial yeah over the years certainly have I've been twirling with some of the best of my I'm sure a lot of them well item we were at the Fillmore we were Mountain View number different venues but up in I I actually saw the dead maybe a year or two before Jerry Garcia passed away on how how good were they in very strange is not to go too far down the road of Grateful Dead I but it would I just listened to some of the life of me put out tons of live albums yeah some of the early seventies stuff is fricking unbelievable how they how they get their vocal harmonies that go right I can't even imagine what especially with the technology of the time yeah but then some of the later stuff is not tonight I wonder if they went through periods where you know one or more of the more so messed up that or they didn't care right well the seventies stuff you're right it was really good towards the end especially when I saw about a year or so before Jerry passed I he was kind of just going through the motions in fact a friend of mine told me actually a teleprompter to see the lyrics are the lyrics now I don't know songs it was it didn't have the same spark bottom layer the other the lead singer guy from a grateful that he's in GQ this month and he did a long interview and he says he was on the east coast right when Jerry Garcia died on the west coast at a rehab right and he says he had a dream that night the Jerry Garcia in hand the cross is Jerry Garcia's bathroom and Jerry Garcia looks through him and he gets some sort of feeling about a many walk up in any got the news the Jerry Garcia died so you believe he got some sort of message right and then when he was doing this thing with John Mayer when they started a couple years ago he was floating above the stage and looking down and realizing that it's bigger than him in this whole Grateful Dead thing is going to go on long after he's passed so I don't know if that's just a high artists talkin about that's what it sounds like all the traffic medical low you know yeah not to have to into music trivia and or it's a Bob lawyer who for years Jerry Garcia made feel inadequate thinking if you now we're making money a stone that it I'm not saying he'd put it that strongly there would be a little bit of I made eight million dollars over the weekend as the Bob weir let Grateful Dead there has to be some of that in you sure little bit you know all I saw Jerry Garcia's last show aims to seriously in this is not a set up to one of my many try humor no I actually did in Chicago mom well I fell asleep halfway through it now somebody might say fell asleep yeah yeah yeah and we've been getting after it since fairly early and we're seated far away and it was kind of boring I fell asleep sorry if you.

"This is the best Armstrong and so you remember that story speaking of taxidermy the I'll talk about taxidermy all day long if you want I find it a fascinating artists on really quickly on the the predictive text there each text me later Duncan the one of the more interesting concerns to me is when children use it it puts a cast on the vocabulary because they're only filling in what is being suggested to them that was interesting work early formative years they are not able to grow their vocabulary as much as they should asked his and yeah it's it's like binding the feet yeah they also did this test where if you're do leaving reviews and they give you when people writing about a restaurant will present it with text short cuts that were skewed to be more positive the resulting reviews tended to be more positive than if they were presented with negative skewed short cuts suggestions researchers found so just out of laziness I kinda like the food but it's easier for me to just click on it so so very even if you didn't like it and the three options it gave you were fine good and great you would say I was probably just fine as opposed to if you were left to fill out that on your own you say no it was bad yeah okay got it interesting yeah and that would be a good way for a business to say you know seventy five percent of our reviews are this or that yep so US we gonna tex snap today announced spectacles three a redesigned version of their augmented reality sunglasses I'm what's snap again snappy short for Snapchat well it is those yeah yeah so this is their this is a hardware device that can be used for Snapchat the social media and will pair with other so for this Snapchat still some people who are yeah yes after I don't even know what any of the stuff in the these glasses which include an HD camera to create depth perception mother represent snaps latest effort to build a new computing platform centered on the face they will go on sale in November for three hundred and eighty dollars which is more than twice expensive as the role model but so what do I do with them I take pictures will come it's the law the idea Jack the glasses marquee features a second camera which enables of spectacles to capture depth the for the first time it's some it's a you can have H. D. added to your environment I'm sorry not HD augmented reality Hey are added your environment as you walk around looking at the real world okay I get it now so is it an example I can look at a room and in theory these classes could say that is a twelve by eighteen room they could you could use me so and you know the demand for seven the right happy with it but these are all very lane carpet these rooms these are these are very much the early just trying to figure out the technology and what we can do with it before it gets cheap enough to be actually consumers even hi as stupid as I am can imagine how great these glasses are gonna be some day and I think we will all be wearing them all the time I've I thought that for for a long now when I first heard of texting I thought why would anybody do that sounds stupid so I don't always have the imagination to figure out what people do but right then when when I can have information available to me walk walking down the street from my glasses there's a coffee shop right around the corner you know that sort of stuff right there in from my balls all the time so all you have to do Jack is open Snapchat on your phone snap it into the viewer and you'll be able to view more immersive versions of your photos and videos this will make us all insane they get to the the point of this in the very last paragraph taking snaps on spectacles transferring them to my phone and only then being able edit and share them felt like too much work so evidently the point of these things is you can just look at stuff and take pictures of it and then posted to your freaking social media account so that their world can ignore the very much kind of a spy glass affected where you you know you've just in your wherever you're looking you just tap the side and click you you've you've snapped a picture fantastic I wonder if it keeps track of all your location data and that's where the money is probably him yeah yes he's in effect these things cost three hundred plus Bucks this that's plenty yeah but I can reach I'm looking at the glasses so they get the like iPhone camera up on the side of glasses but I've got one on my phone this is just keeping me from within my phone up to my face yes yes it's much harder to say take a picture with your iPhone in jungle at the same time I thank juggling take all sorts of pictures with his hello as I walked in and usually you want a picture to take a picture somebody without their knowing what kind of weird were you what do you do on how long a description do you want to hold me forever on this kind of like I'm in this restaurant the other day that they're actually has a a dress code and these guys in there he's in an undersized tee shirt it's showing his lower back yes little peekaboo fashion sexy Sir into what's coming later if you're lucky and I've got a and I want to take a picture to to session when it rains the end came in yes well and so I I look at my phone I'll be darned The New York Times is Vladimir Putin I lived a little higher and higher and take it real quickly yeah yeah yeah they should make sure you turn off your camera sounds on your phone when you're trying to do in cognitive science yeah I always do that I hate noise like any noise that's whatever my wife and I have that convenience store and she heard clicks and some guy was taking a picture first pictures over once only return out yet that was performed on a writer yeah yeah yeah still you don't want that no neither and really know all that's terrible yeah on the other hand violations of dress codes are a bit of a passion for me I should say so you have no Ascot you're listening to the best of the Armstrong and get a Chevy during our podcast one more thing more info at Armstrong Getty dot com AM seven sixty KFMB.

level of shock well it's double the shock according to my math since see I don't know how works on it feels worse in about an order be but one time working at a radio station they had the big giant piece of equipment in that next to the tower the transmitter I don't know I don't even know what it was but it was good zillion volts I'm lucky I didn't die but I was feeling around in the dark this

"The Armstrong. this is democracy what you saw on this committee is democracy as ugly as it can be as personal as it can be the one thing I just keep thinking is this is a textbook example. why some fine Americans who would otherwise be engaged in public service these days are not because they don't want to have to sit there and and face this kind of partisan fuel inquisition. so who's in second gather that was ship obviously saying this is democracy Adam Schiff show I thought that was his voice because I I I had dinner with them a couple years ago he he was at my table I'm sorry say again who isn't. ed o'keefe follow yeah and yeah he's one of the people that I was having a conversation said I got lucky I didn't even know who these guys were I got lucky as it was and keep across from me and Lunney Lunn he chained sitting on the side of me I never met these people for my wife for even seen them before both really interesting guys yeah but it'll keep was the guy who said on I think things will go back to more or less normal one from please I said I don't think that's true I think we've permanently changed the media's changed attitudes have changed anything going back now let's pause for a really really pretentious shot at Jack for me check that's nice that you had that good dinner I was talking to Victor Davis Hanson about ideas well you were talking about offense. Hey go those of you who are familiar with that old bromide really enjoy that so we got this text from a guys from Ukraine and Victor Davis Hanson finally figured out you might as well reason with the dog and went back to his dinner. so I had I had heard that Ukraine had elected a TV star comedian or whatever is president and I'm not hurt anymore he realized he was a YouTube star who played a president being funny and then they elected him president why did that happen I'm speaking as a Ukrainian American here with a lot of family in Ukraine still the reasons a Lynskey was elected in not a seasoned politician or general is because they're expecting that he'll be but he'll be better to represent the people then his own pocket everyone there knows that the majority of the politicians have ties to Russia financial and family not to mention the generals one of which who has a brother this is a general in Russia and the politicians and generals were selling military equipment to Russia to line their pockets thus the YouTube star wow yeah I get it I get it get you get military aid and the generals in your own army are actually selling the stuff to Russia right now if if two ways in killing your people in taking your territory if you have trouble smart he'll work that angle is to yeah that's why I held up the money I was trying to make sure this sort of thing was and still going on yeah wow that's hairy yeah I'd say now all mom Barbara what was I going to say oh yeah and you know it and it all flows from the fact that Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union they have an I've read some really interesting stuff on Germany trying to come together when East Germany rejoined West Germany in they reunited how it feels so good any. little. yeah that's the speeches in the herb it saw. it's a question of integrating society a Soviet society it's all about gaming the government rent seeking they call it a begging the government for crumbs cal telling the bureaucrats the rest of it that's your whole life that's what you live your whole life that is how you get ahead with a merit based society free market society and so Ukraine's dealing with now and it's going to take generations to shake out if it ever does you've got their president you've got their generals all their leaders are on the take their all mobsters because that's the only way to get ahead in a communist or a really a socialist society it's amazing to me that people survive that you know yeah you're born into it I suppose in you just this is what life is and you adjust and figure out a way if you're used to our way of life for you can. and some of you quibble this but were you can trust the cops more or less trust your public officials. this is what I am all but yeah. not completely corrupt like a lot of countries Regis not only do not trust them you know they're not doing the right thing here in Russia like an ambulance siren goes off people don't even pull to the side just as a right there's no yeah some centers an injured person I don't know if you're here the day I was talking about this but the bought some hearings for my wife for our anniversary and us talking to the jewelers from these Palestinian any certain people DPP only nine states you just you take it for granted this you get pulled over by an officer and they say yes Sir do you know why I pulled you over so I need to think we are the concert beat dnia before they even tell you what they think you did wrong what do you do anything wrong or not so it is a lot of the old and we just take it for granted that that's not gonna happen and talk about how the US is the worst country on earth. for god's sake people are stupid what do you know that's the answer to a lot of questions. boy crane Pakula it's not my favorite one is describing Adam Schiff from the Democrats on the committee as the Ukrainian clown posse pretty good. yeah I'm sorry the Ukraine clown posse. how far down the road of not talking about trump at all can we go tomorrow do you think. hello to you Friday lo si for hiding low T. not know T. L. ten today no cheese probably impossible but certainly I'd like to go low T. like really really. you know not a lot of energy week stream the whole thing. the couple of an affront I'm willing to try..

"Armstrong and Getty. Live from studio sees. Aired live. You're listening to the best of Armstrong and Getty. So I knew that this would happen when I brought up yelp reviews that we would get a number of. Texts about it. We endorse we've endorsed a couple of different clients who work really hard taking care of anybody who gives him a negative yelp review. Whatever review here. Yeah. Yeah. Or any kind of bad review and try to make it right? If something actually wrong, but they many of them have told us there are some people. You just can't please. I mean, you offer them for free in they're still mad crazy people. So, but don't most of us look at reviews with that in mind. I mean, if I see you know, four stars. And I look at some of the negative ones. A lot of times the criticisms either make them look crazy or something dome. Yeah. Or if you've ever worked at her operated in a business that deals with the public you realize once in a while, you just have a bad day, somebody has bad there does something stupid, and that's unlikely to happen again. But it took me a while to get past negative reviews while looking at products and services, you you just have to wait it properly. You know, what I mean just one person who says, you know, my my stake had maggots and the potatoes were raw and the waitress supporter. Thumb in my eye. If it's just one person bearing in mind. Yeah. Yeah. What are you guys? Actually, enjoy treating your customers like pieces of nights a negative review. But one I've noticed the most is like trying to like rent a bed and breakfast or anything like that were every time. I look at these. There are people that had the best time of their life. I mean, just stands out as one of the great memories of their lives with people whose lives were ruined. Like all within like us one summer what my husband, and I are now divorced, and he is institutionalized. Thanks for stay at Betty's bed and breakfast. Yeah. Yeah. Just we I was going through reviews over the weekend. We have ducks landing in our pool a lot just like the sopranos. Yeah. Except what the sopranos didn't show is that ducks can crap twenty times in five minutes. She left a yelp review for ducks. They. Very beautiful. But warning these these animals defecate a great deal to stars the quacking cute at first, but let me tell you signed angry poopie Joe. So we're looking for various remedies, and we have purchased a an alligator had that floats around the pool. Does that work? It has shiny scary is well, that's the thing about two thirds of people say unbelievable it work now. No birds menace, my pool anymore. Thank you floating alligator head product. About a third of them say, yeah. The freaking birds land on the thing. They have their babies sit on the thing. It's worthless. I wasted my money. So we just we thought. Well, all right. Let's gamble. You need a real out. Yeah. There you go. That's a great idea. That's the answer. So we ordered the floating alligator had with the shiny is all let our fantastic man deduction. Poop lot. I believe. I hope I don't find out. So I came across this article, I wrote a negative yelp review, and it made my life a nightmare. This woman gave a one star review to a gynecologist told boy did the yelp reviews for a guy. Oh, I guess and and her complaints are kind of typical complaints. She thought it costs more than it should. And she thought they were rude at the front desk and. You know, I it's the sort of review. I would look at it and think well, you know, other people seem to like it and one person's rude is another person's professional, and who knows what? Yeah. Yeah. Or the whole bad day thing, you were just mentioning anyway, the company she got a letter from the company saying they were suing your from million dollars because it affected their she's had to hire a lawyer. She spent over twenty thousand dollars in legal bills, so far trying to defend herself. And getting a for defamation intent that sort of thing. Yeah. I don't know if it's because she because she actually said she used it. Let me I don't know if I can find the everything about my one only visit here is caused me emotional stress and panic. They were rude to me, blah, blah, blah, very poor and crooked business practice. Maybe can't say crooked business practice. But my point would be do any of us know what the rules are legally speaking of a yelp review. What you can say what you can't say. What you what what will get you soon? If you said, right? No, no. I don't have any idea. I don't have any idea either. I mean, if I say if I say that is the worst steak I've ever had in my life. Can I say yes, clearly who could argue with that. Yeah. Yeah. But the crooked thing intrigues me. Because remember when I got my my SUV that a drive now a week in having it some scumbag like took a screwdriver to the finish. I don't know why one of my many enemies there. Anger's probably legitimate. But. So I took it to a body shop affiliated with car dealers, etc. And they told me, oh, yeah, we're going to have to do x. And y because the where it is baba. It's gonna cost you, you know, such and such and it was a huge number. I. And so I took it to another place that had an excellent reputation. They said, oh, no, no, no, not at all. It's going to be a fraction of that. You don't need to do that. Because it's a new car and bubble. It'd be this and it was very reasonable. Now, if I had posted a yelp review of the first place and claimed that they were crooked or it's a rip off or rip off. I think most of the population would say, yeah, that's pretty good description of somebody who do that like super aggressive up seller who lies to you about up selling. That's crooked. Isn't it? If that's not crooked. What is? Where fun for the mob. I dunno. I suppose you could make the argument of I charge way more than other people and I count on people not shopping around. That's not illegal. No, no charge. Whatever you. Nobody grabbed me by the hair and slam my head. And right asking me sign a former and said, I can get this done for twenty percents of that somewhere else. Yeah. You can. Yeah. We're we're crazy expensive. Congratulations. People not shopping around. Good for you. Get out. I think that's true for a lot of businesses count on. You're not going to shop around. Wow. So this this case has enormous. That's what I thought. And makes it a little scary for yell, and again, how did they treat her her tender parts was there anything with that? Now is just just being charged too much. And she thought they were rude. Okay. We got a couple of texts. I was I bribed then threatened by I won't mention the business because I don't know what's going on after a bad yelp review. My son went in for an oil change. And they tried to sell them tires and brakes. Well, those kind of places always do that again that kind of gets back to what we were just saying. Is that is that make you crooked? You trying to sell me something that I don't need your trying to upsell me. I know you're doing say no to that stuff. Right. Does that make you crooked or do? I just need to know the rules of the game. Or how does that work? I don't know. Well, certainly think there's a free speech defense unless your intent is specifically to damage them. And it's not true. I mean 'cause truth is an absolute defense against libel. And slander. But crook crooked. That's interesting. We got a rule on this. In the country to weigh in and give a yelp review of the suit. And then you know, it gets more than three stars. We could take a look at our yelp reviews, which are always funny thirty yelp reviews for the Armstrong and Getty show. And they're usually pretty funny. Yeah. The negative ones particularly. Yeah. We had a former employee who we fired leave a negative yelp review for a company. I've tried to have it removed several times by yelp. And they will do nothing about it. It was certainly designed to defame our character. So that's from the business standpoint employee fired probably because you know, you fired him they weren't good. Now, they're giving you negative for us. Just to damage you. That's not cool. I had a buddy who owned an RV park. The most hilarious complaints were regarding the awful weather. One star it rained the whole time. We were there. I have seen those for vacation spots where you're criticizing the bed and breakfast rain. The whole time you were there. Don't nice. Here's a one star review Carol g possibly the worst talk radio show except for Hannity who definitely is number one. Does. She mean station. She must one star review. Yeah. Joe who thinks he is a genius. And no one can tell him anything. Meaning he has a completely closed mind, especially regarding facts Joe's, IQ is low. He has no understanding comprehension of the real world. View are leaving yelp reviews for radio shows their jokes are.
