"And i think a lot of what i like about him is the variation right like we talked to a lot of people that they're already kind of genre but this guy is reading prolifically but reading very different things than i'm reading and and i think that that just makes for a really good conversation and he's just so easy to talk to you he's just a great guy. The thing that i really love to see afterwards is when past guests. Start to interact. And you're you're very proactive about this sort of thing. You know the power of creating connections like listened to yesterday was working in my house. I listened to jim. Rutten kenneth stanley. Oh yeah that was recommended not plugging her own. Podcast straight but a good one to check out for to pass guests. Jim kennan stanley talking about the myths of pursuing objectives in these sorts of things. That was a good one. I really enjoyed that one. Because you know in on my podcast. I wanna do. I wanna know who can stanley is right. I it's really interesting to me to figure out like what's going on. Do you have kids. And how does this impact how you think about curiosity and novelty search but with jim and can they were able to. Just sit there and talk about the subject to that. Ken is deeply in this kind of novelty search idea. And it's just a totally different podcasts. And so it was interesting to hear like this is the conversation i've had with. Jim is the conversation. I've had with ken and now to see those to talk together was it was like Was awesome. And i'm really proud like i've actually connected Jim rut with several people after listening to matt.

"The same solutions that we had exactly and so one of the things that i've talked with kate about this. I've talked to with rob long about this. Like people don't realize that vegetables or or the things that we eat or the animals they come from essentially a lot of the same regions rate so like the andes. Mountains is where all of our potatoes come from and they believe that this occurs. Because you have this. Let's just say a tuber and it is way up in the air so it's closer to the sun. It's near the equator and way more solar radiation hits this thing all the time. and so. It's going to have way more mutations just like we have mutations in our skin if we get all kinds of sunburn and so there's a reason why the closer you get to the mountains where potatoes came from in peru that all the sudden you see so much more variation and it's this it's this mutation that occurs in the space and then the further that you get away from it the less variation you have which is why. When they were planning potatoes in ireland they really only had like one or two potatoes because those are the only varieties that they could get to grow that far away from the equator in those soil conditions and so then when they hit a blight boom you have the potato famine game over for millions and millions of people..

"You can't speed. That process up has to happen over time. So what are you working on these days to make yourself better. You're always honing something In in terms of making in terms of making ben better Trying to I've been like consuming a lot. More than i've been out putting i feel like last You know x. Amount of time. So i've been kind of been sitting down regularly like i'm writing And this is helping me. It's like the it's your thing right. You don't know what you say until you say it out loud and If i don't always have a setting To speak through ideas like this. It's like oh. I can open up my notebook and i can write out a concept and doing this while reading. Sort of different things where it's like. Oh here's an idea. Here it's amalgamating in my brain. I've liked you know built up. Flake the dam the waters overflow. Then i put the pen down. You're just say it's cathartic right. I'll just don't even really need to think about what you're writing sort of thing. It's like what you would call automatic authoring or different stephen press field as a term for it. Sort of thing Yeah you just put the pen down right and it's like that's that's a surprisingly surprisingly beneficial practice that i would highly recommend anybody who's trying to be a better individual right to make yourself better. Is you gotta understand. The problem and yourself is the problem so put the pen down and understand yourself. How do you think What are your demons like. What are your desires. These sorts of things Yeah it's it's been fun. I would say very much that. I guess writing and thinking right. Yeah i think the the writing when is when that's the easiest for me to give up right like you know oh. I don't have time like any empty the dishwasher instead of taking this time and five in the morning to to right. But you don't really necessarily notice how big of a change is happening when you're writing so you think it's not like jogging where you're like. Oh i went jogging for two weeks and suddenly i'm able to jog a half a mile further a little bit faster with a writing. It's not quite like that. But you do start noticing..

"And you're not willing to push back on that then i have to ask myself. What would i push back on. I don't actually know the answer to that yet or know where that line gets drawn right I think. I think there's a weird thing with this like new mob mentality. That's coming up where it's almost like i don't know over over the last x amount of time lake. The the return on inviolate or the return on investment towards violence has been going down and down and down and down and this trend towards the mob the mob requesting x. The mob requesting why we want you to behave this way. We want you to behave that way. Seems like the return. The roi on violence is being to go back up. And i know that's a really interesting idea. So we had mark career non last week and he was talking about you know we talked about the kids jumping on cop cars and you know could have been any city in. America is one of the things that we talked about this is going on and then lo and behold it did happen in other cities in america where people young people drunk in the streets. You know angry about whatever saw cop car got on top of it and now you have a police officer with. Let's let's just be really conservative. Let's say has thirty bullets in his glock in his service weapon. God forbid he used them right but there's way more than thirty people there he's one person like what what force could he have used their now. That necessarily think he should have. I'm just saying dr over lake. I dunno whatever. The scenario is right but Playing it's like it's weird because that was that was a manifestation of like literal physical violence in one form. Right l- literally jumping on cop car like those those ridiculous and this is beginning to happen like the videos in chicago. Look at miami. People physically attacking a police officer. It's ridiculous But that being the that that being said it's yeah it's weird because back to that idea of the return to violence. It's like it's it's social violence. It's like what ushered out the feudal era where people used to give up their land to people to protect them from lake nights would just roam around and friggin take. Take what they needed right. Like early agrarian society blah blah blah. It was it was gun powder the ability for people to say like no. We're like come over here with your horse in your sword. I'm going to blow your head off right. So there's this weird like Like this conglomerate and intimidation states protecting people like like societies come in waves but now here we are and like the the violence that we're enacting to say. No you can't just you know. Shoot me law man. And i'm not comparing like the police to like the knights of old that used to like read areas or anything like this but that's what they're viewed as by these groups..

"Pursuit of of power and power in terms of military can be in terms of financial and the liberals believe it's constant in in terms of gaining more resources. So how can you. How can you leverage the the resources that you have to be able to amass more. Which i the reason i want to clarify. That is because it'd be very easy for people to default and be like. Oh i'm a realist. And not one of those commie liberal. But i think there are a lot of people that understand. The value of trade really has created peace. And there's very strong case for the liberal estate. Then i mean that makes sense right and i guess going back to this I'm not refreshed unlike the ideas from that book but like this connect connect taga fee kind of talks about some of these sorts of ideas of trade will hold us together but it will hold us together on individual to not becoming larger conglomerates entities that enter trade like this is why it something like an e you make sense because these sorts of things become easier until the entity that you know all of the goop and between the cracks starts to get thicker and thicker and And what like. The analogy of the group is the entity. That's taxing the ability to organize this trade to the degree where it's like. Hey if we could just leverage information technology and whatever to be able to come to these sorts of agreements without this entity in the middle. That's taking x. percentage for facilitating question mark. You know that. I one hundred percent agree with and like it makes less and less sense for the for you to amass a larger and larger government system right like the federalist system that we have in the us which is largely been discounted by people living on the coast to say. Look we have all the population therefore we should just do popular vote. We should we should do things as one giant mass of a country. And then you have people living out in the rural areas. Being like whoa. Whoa whoa. we're growing the food. We're where the resources come from your extracting value. We want to have control over our lives. otherwise we're serfs to you. And i think if you can continue if the if the coasts continue and cities it's not just the coast it's also chicago is probably saint louis. It's these places where large groups of people keep trying to assert their authority over other people because they have a larger. Bob i think you will start seeing more of what's going on in the state of iowa where they're going into western oregon counties in san like. Hey you guys wanna come join us in greater idaho. And i think you may see a break-up of things like that do you think the the us government will allow counties to leave the state that they're in and join a different Different state I have no conceptual framework for what the mind clinician would be. No because the Seems like if. I don't know if i'm thinking on behalf of a complex entity that wants to maintain power and garner's money resources it. Can you know the the ability for smaller units of my conglomerate to make agreements the benefit. Each other without my approval doesn't seem to be in my best interests. You know what i mean so my inclination would be to say is that no they would in fact be like no states have drawn their lines. Like i don't know or maybe just like being that goop in the middle. That facilitates like yeah. We can facilitate this. But it's gonna. I don't know if it's a financial cost or like i..

"He had and put it into a song today and say like look the fire was started way before us right and i think it's like i think that nostalgia is a dangerous idea. I mean rodney. King was in the nineties right so like there was definitely police brutality then there were riots and like people were standing on top of of shops shooting other people so for me the we tend to have this sensation that things were better or easier but i think there was a lot of cultural change going on like this would have been the time. I don't even know if you remember the show. The real world like the so there is a show on. Mtv called the real world that where they would bring all these people together and have them live in a house and it was the first Now you see these shows all the time like reality. Tv these were the first ones so there was one where there was a a gay man named pedro that had aids and it was the first time any i was a kid from eureka illinois. I was probably like ten or eleven years old. I didn't know any gay men that had aids and yet now we're watching a television show where you're seeing him not be a threat to anybody in the house. They can live next to him. They can eat off the same silverware. The they can share bathrooms and they're not afraid and what that did for society moving the overton window further open. And i remember there was always this country guy war cowboy hat and he was from like somewhere in nashville or something was trying to be a music singer and and You know the the the dynamics between those two was watched by everybody in the world. And then when pedro died. I remember bill clinton coming on and saying none of us can ever say anymore that we didn't have a gay friend we did. He's right here. Pedro and so now like look what this is done for society and so i definitely understand that culture has to change and maybe the the pride flags are a movement of that. But i think there's something else going on here. When pedro in the real world were happening. Nobody was being. Nobody was being asked to sit underneath the banner of an ideology. The just were able to observe it and say well. What does this mean for me. What is this. What does this change for what i think as opposed to being forced to represent an idea that i don't i don't necessarily have any connection with right. Yeah that's the thing is like the not having connections not like you. It's it's weird because it's not like you have a direct opposition to the idea. Because i don't think either of us have a direct opposition to the because what's the root idea there it's to be more accepting of people with a certain sexual preference in society that's great. We've got mutual friends. Who have these sorts of like preferences. That's this should be the case but when it becomes so prevalent that you are forced to either be really for it or like You know like okay. That's okay like i got my friends over you have these preferences and like we'll hang out whatever but i don't wanna go take part in the parade or you know have to wear the t shirts to company on. Whatever i don't know it's just a strange thing into the nineties thing. Also i don't like i i didn't grow up there so i have no like I've i've tethered to this idea as it concept. It's like an observation. Like oh man like things were better right. It's like this perception though like my cousin. Got me a really good book for christmas last year. Fact fullness i'd think could you know the author rulings yeah. I didn't remember his name. Thank you but this book was phenomenal in that..

"Let's imagine a scenario in which there was some sort of like heterosexual pride or something like that. I don't want anything about sexuality talked about it work. Because i don't care at all other people are doing at home. And with whom and what. It is like their activities. I don't care straight gay anywhere in between. I don't want to and in fact the the idea like we have this weird almost ironic part of culture that says should have work life balance. Shouldn't have to work all the time. You shouldn't have to have have your work flood into every aspect of your personal life. You should have time with your family. Time away from your boss controlling what you're doing. Why in the world would we have this concept of. Bring your whole self to work and and also that we should talk about things like sexuality in the workplace. Now i have a good friend that said like look. I worked for several years. Where every time. I was in communications with my friends over in the balkans or in in the middle east. I had to pretend as though my partner was my friend or my roommate and i didn't like that. I that sucks. I don't want that like you know. But at the same time the correct answer then to assert that sexuality is. Is overtly something that we should talk about at work or something that your employer should care it up at all about one then. Maybe this is the thing. Is that the goal of putting these sorts of symbols forward so So prevalent right is to push the overton window open so that you can edge because that's where it's like. There's the cost benefit analysis rate. Is like these scenarios. Happen where you have to go and you have to lie about who you are in certain settings and that's exactly what i'm saying like. I don't want anybody to have to do that. Under any circumstances you know within reason for your psychopathic lie about yourself in public great but Yeah like so..

"Yeah i mean what what is freedom but the ability to choose and it's a scary thing to make a decision because there are repercussions to decisions. So it's you know if you don't if you don't have a framework for what might be a good decision and what might be a bad decision. A few aren't comfortable with ambiguity. Someone stepping in and saying hey. I'm presenting any decision As opposed to ambiguity be very attractive to just choose going forward with that decision as opposed to lurking in your own ambiguity or going through the effort that's required to create your own framework for making a better decision.

And now, I'm on the air for what five minutes, and I've already made fun of your kidney stones. But importantly, are you feeling better much? Have you ever had them before? No awful. All I mean, I've never had them. But I've had friends and family members. And you're young man that drink lots of water. I'm telling you. All right. Wow. That is a bummer. So anyway, it's it's all in the past good. Hopefully, we won't need to rush you to the hospital here today other than you'll probably just be like, you know, you'll probably kill me by the this point. I know my route. Right. So anyway, say Ben when you call three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred he'll beyond with with me all morning this morning a little bit later on this morning. And we're going to talk with a VP of product development for a company called Jami, which is a counter top paint product that if you have laminate countertops, and you want to transform them to look like marble hits really an interesting system, that's affordable. And you'll be amazed at the results. I I was amazed. When I when I saw them for sure. So stay tuned for that coming up, but let's get to your phone calls three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred and we'll start with a Dominic who's in Franklin park. Dominic year on WGN. Good morning. Good morning will. I listen you for years and always tried to call him never get through. But might situation Mike problems. You saw them just just by listening. You ever saw. That's very nice of you. Thank you. Your purple. Anyways. I'm right by O'Hare right behind me was an old quarry, which is now Philbin this year. I mean we've had him before. But. It's getting re I can almost make snakeskin boots. Already. Wait. Wait. Wait. You have a problem with snakes. Yeah. The gardner. I mean in dirty shutting right? I mean, we have low grass not trees in the back yard my dogs. So there's another reason why we have no flowers and these things just keep getting novitiate the worst. I see at least fifteen of ready. Yeah. Now, you said that you said that tell me the what's the surrounding around your yard. Is it other homes or there's a field or what is it their homes? My yard is fence all the way around. Right next black behind me does another blackout houses. But then the deal that was been and I've also got run. Wait what twenty three right? A block and a half that got it. Right. Okay. Coyotes out front that doesn't bother me. But I'm not a snake person. Yeah. No, I hear you. So you're like what's his name from? Not crocodile Dundee. What what was he the guy that didn't like snakes in raiders of the lost? Ark. It is like snakes. Once you tool been, you know, I've seen all the products that you fight the big box. And they're all saying that, you know, it's a miss, and I'm pulling the expert. Well, I mean, I will tell you that, you know, eliminating snakes is a tough is a really tough one. I have had pretty good luck. And I've actually personally tried this product fine. I'd makes a product called snake away in its repellent. Know what I had a gallon of that last year. And you know, it's granules drive. It's granules, correct. And I mean, if they sit and wait for a little while I find it again what they started getting not as bad as this year. Right. You have to reapply this quite a bit. That's the that's the issue with this product comes in a gallon jug and around the perimeter of the round the perimeter area of your yard. It's a it's it's a scent. And it's also something that if it gets on their on their physical bodies the right word, but I guess it is it irritates them. And they go other places. And so if you bought a couple of gallons and did a perimeter around your home and probably applied at every four days. I think you'll see a reduction in the amount of snake activity, but it's a really tough one to. Get rid of there's also some traps and things you can do. But then you have to deal with all that if it were me at continue to do the repellents and hopefully force them any kind of rodent or pests like that they're all creatures of habit. And once they get used to coming into one area. They just keep coming back. And so by using these repellents on a consistent basis, you actually you annoy them enough that they it's like a learned behavior. I don't wanna go over there because it doesn't feel right. It doesn't smell Raymond go somewhere else. But if you don't stay on it day after day here every few days, then you don't annoy him enough. And then they just keep coming back. So that's the key. Whether you're trying to get rid of snakes, chipmunks, squirrels raccoons skunks you name it. You just have to stay at it. So that they're uncomfortable in that situation. And then they'll go somewhere else. Dominic. Thank you so much for your phone. Come just bumping up against time. You're listening to Lou Manfredini and housesmarts radio on seven twenty WGN.

"A because it reflects the actual value of your home in the eyes of your tax collector. Let's talk property taxes. Now, we're the pro. And I mean, a pro joining us now is Ben Anderson the tax collector of Okaloosa county, Florida. That's the home of fort Walton beach and Destin on Florida's beautiful panhandle. Ben is a real tour emeritus having worked with buyers and sellers for forty two years before dedicating all his time to his duties as tax collector, then how are you? I'm doing absolutely terrific today. And it's just wonderful to be here with fellow realtors. And homeowners across America, Ben, we're delighted that you're with us. Now, I question how is my tax Bill created? Well, that's a great question. And and I think often a big question that people want to know, your local tax Bill is created by a blended effort between local government is trying to determine their budget and the property assessor. Value on each parcel under county. They join me well established the tax Bill on your property got it. But here's another question. Ben, why is it that the assessed value of my house is always lower than the appraised value of my house. Well, and there's kind of a common acceptance and government and taxation in that they attempt to give you a net after sale the and negotiation bag so oftentimes you're going to find that your property assessor will take anywhere from fifteen to twenty five percent off the top depending on the market that you're in. And that's where the big difference comes down. So they tried to arrive at a fair value based on a net fail. You've just taught me something. I never knew that the assessment was considered a net price. That's. Very interesting. Ben, tell us about the homestead exemption. We encourage all of Americans to own a home. It's the American dream on home and intern government rewards that by giving you a deduction against your best value for owning that home, and that can be a big deduction it is and in many areas, it's around twenty five thousand here in Florida that's been increased under base twenty five plus certain conditions that folk into another twenty five for total fifty thousand dollar auction that comes directly off of the assessed value of what the topic praise. Your put on your home. Ben if I come into your office and say, I want to appeal my property tax Bill can I win. Yeah. Sometimes absolutely has always prepared. What's your estimation? A steady with your approach on it and be diligent and underlining to the truth of watch your property is worth as an individual property and not it's under the tide with all the property appeal directly with the facts and feel it like this Ben has anyone ever come to you and said my property taxes are too low, sir. I do not hear that. Look at that. As the justified American. Ben, it's always a pleasure talking to you. Thanks for joining us today. Thank you, so much pleasure to be with you.

And really strange sports leagues sports from across the country from across the world. Also, there were a lot of books that we were assigned in school that we probably didn't read maybe did the Cliff's notes version of them. But BuzzFeed put together an article with twenty three of the books that you probably didn't read in high school, but you actually really should. So we'll talk about the books that we were assigned in high school, and whether we read them or not or we cheated and they don't call it Cliff's notes anymore. Do they? I don't think. So it's it's net Cliff's notes in this recent too. Because with some point in the last ten years issues where it started changing. Yeah. Is it spark notes and might be I might have to dig deep notes notes. But I when I was when I would cheat in high school Cliff's notes, and it had the they were the yellow and black striped booklets that you would instead of reading the book. I I remember using them. Yeah. I'm so we'll talk about that. And then what we're really gonna have a lot of fun with this morning is the most rewatch -able movies of all time. Now, I happen to be a person who if I like a movie, I will watch it over and over and over and over and over again, I know a lot of people are like, I don't know how you can do that. Can you watch the same movie over and over and over again? But when I really love a movie, I will watch it multiple times. And I want to hear from you guys about the most reliable movies in your life. What movies do you watch over and over and over again, what movies do, you know every line of dialogue from? Yeah. Because I know we all have at least a couple of movies. I mean, I have several, but many of us have at least a couple of movies that we can watch over and over and over again, no every single line of dialogue to that kind of thing. So we're going to talk about most rewatch movies and more phone number.

"WGN as we celebrate black history month. Ben Anderson pick that one out good choice. Ben richards. Pretty awesome pretty spectacular. And jamie. Fox was great in the movie Ray. The movie Ray is directed by the same guy that directed LA Bamba. And if you ever noticed they are the same plot the same story now, obviously there's similarities in anybody's life who becomes you know, so successful what they have to go through how they've changed their dream that moment of accomplishment that moment I hear this song on the radio. And and so in that regard there, you know, you expect them to be similar, but I'm telling you that these movies if you ever have a chance to watch him both again, they're like the same story. They're like, exactly alike and Jamie, FOX was great in Ray. I did not know this at the time. But Jamie, FOX was a classically trained pianist at Juilliard how about that. So it wasn't like, you know, like, Bradley Cooper learned to get better on the tar for stars born. You know, and Joaquin Phoenix. Learn how to sing and play guitar for the Johnny cash story walked line. But, you know, here's a case where Jamie FOX, I mean, he was probably more qualified to be -sition. It'd be an actor and pretty spectacular. What Jamie FOX does in the movie Ray? And it's worth seeing by the way, I liked it more than I liked Lebombo. Okay. So I wanted to know what you guys the weirdest thing you've ever made or the weirdest thing you've ever eaten because Kentucky Fried Chicken, not knowing why shoot, but another states can tell you very chicken is currently testing, its chicken. She sandwich. Which is not a chicken sandwich with Cheetos on it, noon or Cheetos are like ground up and baked into the coding. That is surrounding the chicken breast that sits on top of the sandwich. And that simply wanna know why why look I get why you have extra crispy some people like their Kentucky Fried, Chicken extra crispy other people. Don't I get that? I get while you have, you know, the, you know, the chicken bites a I don't think they're called nuggets at KFC. But I don't understand why you would go ahead and put Cheetos on the chicken sandwich. But hey, what the hell, you know, Wendy's doing the maple chicken sandwich? So what's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten? And the worst thing you've ever made Ben Anderson is here he's executive producing. Vic Vaughn is doing your updates tonight, by the way, so far Vic Vaughn is flawless like, you know, Dave Jennings keeps a texting me. Why will he make a mistake? Sorry, dave. But guys the weirdest thing you've ever consumed. I've thrown them for a loop. Ben is on the phone and Vic is currently interviewing Barack Obama in the newsroom right now. So that's what happened there. Trying to think other things I've eaten there are quite weird. Besides the ostrich an ostrich burger, and then I just had alligator pieces. What are what are some other word? She venison to me is weird venison is like something that, you know, life people beaten, it's deer meat and a lot of people eat that especially we live we border on Wisconsin. I have a lot of friends that are hunters. I have I have a friend that you know, will kill and clean and cook his own venison. So I don't think that's that weird. But I guess for some people they're like, well, gee, I've never never had that let's go to Dan in Lake Geneva. Dan, you're on WGN radio, Harry. My grandpa didn't have heroes anyways. No. I guess I just get one a shirt platters troops spike with a tunnel. Horseradish so separately kid, eat it. All. Well, horse is horseradish is pretty good choice for Schramm. Pretty good choice for cocktail sauce. When you say you spike like how heavily? Oh. Most turn it white, sir. Oh that is do you? Will you eat it? I love it. It's pretty good. It's pretty good taste for calling. I appreciate it. That leaves a line open. Let's grab Eric in Tinley park. Eric you're on WGN radio. What's growing on good morning? This thing I ever tried. I copied a sandwich recipe off of one episode of dragnet with Harry Morgan. He made a peanut butter garlic in cream cheese sandwich. And I think there was something else involved. Also. Right now. Everybody listening is making the same face. It looked good at the time. And I I.
