Episode 87: What if your arms grew 1" longer every month?

"In what if what if I was what if we had nine lives blooded pits ups or if money through on trees they've redid nappy back then. Insert medical who everybody and welcome to absurd hypotheticals. The show we over think dumb questions. So you don't have to. I'm your host markets later and I'm joined here today by Christie and Ben Storms. Say Hi guys. Hey I'm Chris. Hey I'm Ben Guys. We're going back to our roots today. This is almost like our very first question. We ever answered which was up. What if you got one inch taller every month or getting more specific now though? Yeah we're we've honed in on on what makes a good podcasts. And we found out that it's arms nothing else matters nothing. Nothing else matters at all so in light of that revelation that that wonderful epiphany our question. This week is of course. What if your arms got one inch longer? Every month we're GONNA say the starts at our current ages so twenty eight about the same. I'm not sure if you guys were actually so. Did you have birthdays that I missed? I'm I'm still twenty eight. I'm twenty nine. I had my birthday over. Haiti's the day that Benja married. Oh Yeah I think I did. How good friend. Navy at remember anyhow so starting now so you you you grow normally. I was talking about it with a with one of my friends and she was like so if you start. When you're you know conceived your arms are going to be longer than you are when you're born and I'm like Oh God no we're gonNA WE'RE GONNA start at GonNa started our age. We're GONNA start once you're an adult so you can deal with some of it anyhow so when it's longer every month only the the length of your arm is going to increase your arms are GonNa stay kind of the same mattis skinny. They're not GONNA get like super scale up in all dimensions and your hands at the end of your arms gonNa stay the same. You gotTA have little hands. Which is a much funnier image to me this. I hate it so much this image. Okay then you hit the tiny. Which do you want the long hand Matt to and Both Valley? Worse I was GONNA say the hands to save proportional and then I imagined what like a five foot hand but on the spindly arm her spindly hand fingers. It's not as much the tiny hands as the the very long skinny arms are just like very like glitch video game in my mind. I'm not happy about it. I just spent a week thinking about this. I'm going to make the listeners do it too. We also said that it's proportional so like your upper arm and your for your forearm. They grow at the same rate. Your elbow stays in the middle. Yeah you're able to stay in the middle which is but I really long straight arm and then a tiny little. Eat It Well that's you hate it so much. Tell us about your answer all right so so. I did some sort of like general. What life is like with this? You know sort of stuff and the first thing I want to figure good. It's clearly not I'm GONNA go ahead and get but the first thing I actually was just. When do you realize happening because like I I was thinking it was actually kind of hard to realize this? And there's there's one very clear thing that will trigger at which is. Do you wear long sleeve shirts. So you'll realize the winter. I wear long sleeve shirts to work every day. And I'm pretty sure that if this art happening to me I would realize within literally like the first month because I would have just this extra risk coming out of my the end of my slave. I'm pretty sure I noticed that like because I had comparison point right there i. Let's say two months. I think the first month like I'm not sure shrinking. I gotTA CHECK MY DETERGENT. But but it'll be all of it is. I think I think it will be because we all of them. I think I would actually realize pretty ugly but you want. Do you wash your shirts. Different detergents Ben. Are you a fancy lad? I this is true marcus but I want to hear out. If you don't wear long sleeves say that you like it starts late spring. Don't wear them to work. Or you just live in San Diego or something where it's always. Nice Yeah. I don't really wear long sleeves to work in the summer. So all right so yeah so say say it happens to you. Chris. When when is the first time you would actually realize not traffic for for things like I would notice if suddenly my arms for longer I was like tying my shoes maybe a foot difference there and I definitely notice just normally before then. So it's not that I thought about like touching my ceiling wedge like reached up if I yawned or something but there's still like with my parents are pretty low. I saw like a six inch gap there so maybe but not before then I finally realized what it one hundred percent be is. Everyone has something in their life. They had to standards a little bit on their toes to reach up high. And for me. It's like a couple pans on top of my cupboards kitchen. Act LIKE YOU KNOW. Lean just a little bit up to get to. It's like two inches up. Maybe I'm pretty sure that when I could just suddenly retirement grabbed them one hundred percent. No he was going on. You're not GonNa think that you just grew some. Mario like you had a gross. Like second growth spurt or something. I mean I don't I before I thought my arms were growing but then I measure myself. I wouldn't have you know yes you know so. I think that's I think that sort of the indicator where you realize it definitely is whatever that thing is in your life you half years you know strain a little bit to get to. You'd suddenly wouldn't and it'll be weird. Do you think you'd think you'd start getting clumsy? Where like you're used to your arms being the exact length all the time and then suddenly. There's like knocking shit over like all the time I thought about that and I thought about like if you know like sit down your computer and then suddenly your elbows. We further back. Because you're you know armed for longer and you get weirded out but I don't know how notice that before I would notice you know the reaching thing but maybe I don't know maybe if you had something that you like how now. There's no way no way for us to test this right. Yeah exactly we cannot scientifically determine when you would notice first so some more stuff so one clothing usually in these questions after we had like you know get custom clothing or something you technically actually don't have to with this one which is really upsetting. Really all close was still fit. You it's just the your arm stick way out from them. Which is hilarious. The other deaths. Now Yeah so like I think I think you probably WanNA wearing a lot. Like like sleeveless shirt to make it less obvious that you have freakishly long arms. Get cold right well. Yeah you'll get cold well and then the thing is that you know. You can't really wear jackets. Drying more to use an umbrella chart asking myself wait. When can you stop us here? And I'm like when. Can you don't agree? He's an umbrella sitting certain point. You can't hold umbrella and have it be over like have it be over your head still right and still be useful. Does that make sense? Yes going to high in the water. Just got an idea like blocking water for someone who's three feet above right. Exactly get on. Get like the right angle. You have to lay out your elbow in your elbow. Be Getting wet so I figured that the point where an umbrella is no longer fully effective is when as long as you can hold your arm straight down and not have hit the ground. You can hold it above you right. That's basically it so for me. My arms are about twenty inches long and it was twelve inches from the shoulder to the elbow and I measured it. There's a forty two inch gap for my elbow to the floor right now. So once my upper arms fifty four inches long. I can't use an umbrella anymore and that would get me to the age of roughly thirty five. I guess after that. I'm just GonNa get wet did did you have shown to help you. Measure yes it did. Yes on the link from my elbow to the floor. I got my article myself that when I did I could not figure out the other one. I did spoil also mentioned my whole body. I think we all did like coyly went into the living room and I'm like Hey. What's their tape measure? And she's like over there. Why I'm like no reason and then I went into into into the bedroom just like close the door and then did weird measuring so she won't judge me implications if you if you take tape measure out of the bedroom and closed the door but that's GonNa move on past that twenty three inches. You tell us that your you had like an urge measure your arms at work and you're like I'm not going to do that. Was that was I was I was working on. I was doing a little research on my lunch break and I wanted to kind of see like my starting point. Start doing a little spreadsheet to see like the different ages helping my arms would be my starting point and I'm like men are my arms like too long two and a half one without measuring. I probably would say either two or three feet. Not Three feet seems like long. Yeah three really different too long but somewhere between two and three feet. Oh I think it would have gotten me is like I know I have a. I have a square body. You ever do like the in class where you measure P per square rectangular if you stick your own area and I knew I was a square boy so I don't six feet tall and the arms other side and then a half like my shoulder shoulders. Like whatever that discipline like. It's going to be about two and a half feet. I didn't expect how long my hands were like. I guess. So it's like it's like you're you said twenty three inches. I got like two feet. You don't want that. Run it up a little bit and sounds like a foot of foot for the two sections and then from like the risks of the fingertip was like seven and a half which is like more than I was expecting. Your hand is like a quarter of your arm length. Right court doesn't seem right. Whoa I'm looking at my handwriting. Andrei Yeah and yet my are now measuring my arm my hand. This is all great podcasts. Right now we should probably move. My arm is for hands long so so moving on the. I think one of the things I thought about was was not really a solution on this one. But Dr is not GonNa work at some point. I don't know exactly when 'cause it's a complicated problem but like at a certain point you just got too much. Armand there too. I forgot how you could like fit yourself ed and still hold the wheel as necessary but as certain points not gonNA work. You could sit in the passenger seat and reach over. Not The problem is your leg or any longer than you can't. That's the problem is they're saying you have someone else put that pushed pedals. Edano why they won't be driving instead. That seemed like a much better solution. I think this lucy of somebody else drive the vehicle uber everywhere. But certain point. You'RE NOT GONNA be able to fit in the car either at a certain point so so I guess when your arms are let's see when I single section your arm. How long is a car? I I actually had at the time. So let's say like from the from the dashboard to the back. Seat is what you're GonNa get along with so you're gonNA have to like sit sideways whole time. Well I think are you can if you if you like. Pull your your your elbows into the back of the seat and then put your arms through the middle of the front seats too. Where your hand like onto dashboard? That's your best option. Looks Hilarious my mind. My mind went to open the windows and wrap them over the roof. Your arm strip. Stick your arm straight up and you don't drive under any low hanging bridges also. The problem is the flexibility because your upper arms soldiers straight bone. You only have one joint so at a certain point. You're still gonNA have like if you go by a truckers. You'RE GONNA come off right like yeah see. Don't drive on those road. You have to take that you have to take the truck ways you can check the height requirements highways like. I feel like you're still going to be at risk of stop signs and stuff though you're at risk you are at risk not no jokes there a limo. So I guess if you figure you know if you if you can keep them inside the car and get him like eight feet forwards. You can laugh until you're like in your forties maybe with a limo. You can get how no fifteen feet twenty feet long. Lowest Twenty feet gives you a sixty five which retirement age. You're not gonNA work anymore. Maybe Lemos the Hesser found guys but driving sucks. It's not work after a while. Anyway point being when you actually like the other thing I really ran into there was a very real problem was using a computer is a very difficult task. Now because as the clean up in my mind is your eyesight. Isn't any better so even though you can reach things far away if you have to like manipulate them. You can't really see what you're doing so to use a computer. You still screen next to you but once your arms get long. You can't use a mouse and keyboard next to you. What if they're wireless Dan? So that's what you have to do. Is You have to get a wireless keyboard. But then if you say you're at work your work environment is now you're in one QB. A modern in front of you and then twenty feet in front of you is another you a wireless mouse and keyboard your arms stretching across that dictates so would you. Would you have an elevated cubicle? So that now your arms are kind of like Like overhead pipes running intern. Cubicles are the ones that are under your arms so i. I don't think you can do that because I guess. Yeah well no because it still wouldn't do. Yeah that would that would work. And your arms support all the way across the steam. Pipe the air conditioning. Duct and the Ben's arm than the other and then the anymore you do actually hit an issue which is that when you get to about fifty six years old. Your arms are roughly thirty feet long. And that's about the range of wireless keyboards and mice. So fortunately there is actually a very boring solution to this. Which is you can get those. Espn extender cables and plug the Dongola into that. And then you're good so it's actually not bad damage technology. I know I was really sad that there was an easy solution. I would refer to tape a signal repeater to my elbow. That's also hilarious so you could get like retirement age. You only need like thirty eight feet so it works out works out but I did want to come up with a better career plan to actually take advantage of your long arms. 'cause we needed something aside from just. Yeah you can keep working your office job so last time. We got really tall. I broke basketball. I want to do that again because you know already did that. Once even to. That's the obvious choice right so I'm gonNA break football instead. So so the thing that I realized is that and I. I thought I had with this. Is that in football? To score a touchdown all you have to do is break the plane of the end zone with the football right. So that's why you know. If someone you know trying to touchdown dive across and as soon as it breaks the plane guard touchdown so you can just get the ball on your hands and then move your arm into the end zone you score a touchdown so that's already pretty good because once your arm. Is You know thirty feet long. Once you're at the ten yard line Hebrew much take the snap and move your arm over and you score which is really good but then I realized that also when you like are down whether you just you know Neil Donald whatever or tackled. The ball was spotted wherever it is where you're holding it so I realized once your arms are roughly ten yards long. Which would be at around. You know fifty-six basically what you can do to like the far side of the field. Take the snap swivel and kneel down and get a first down a and suddenly. You're just an unstoppable offense machine. He messed up a lot of game his just passing off the ball. Yeah pretty much. I can't even it over. And then that's it. I feel inclined here for for my non-football listeners. To explain what I down real quick yeah. That's so football you you WANNA go from one end to the other end. And when you get all the other touchdown it's all good. Everybody's happy everyone cheers. You get a bunch of tries. You get four tries. Those are what they call downs. If you make it from where you start and you make it ten yards forward you restart your try counter back to one so you get four tries to make it ten yards in those four tries. It sounds really easy and I don't know why football player football teams don't do it more often but that's what they have to do it because there's like two hundred sixty pound men who don't want you to go and part main reason which is usually a pretty good incentive to not do something personally so there are some some small issues and like like you know you can get the ball. Not How your hands before you kneel down I guess but then you just like keep it high out you can make it work pretty much eventually. You prescribe football and suddenly no one wants to play with you anymore but people will pay a lot of money because you can score returning the field so you know it's not bad now that would make a living so I guess that's my plan. Overall is your life is going to be really really annoying time but once your arms are let's say five yards long. You're probably going to get paid just a very large number of millions of dollars football so. I'm glad you didn't choose boxing. I don't think it would work very well though. Is that even a rain? Someone out of bounds in boxing. Is that a win. You can hit them. They can't hit you. I guess that's true but it takes so. I guess the problem is a takes your fists a long time to move to them because it's far away and they're going to be able to move out of the way very easily. I mean you can jab. I think you'd be able to Jab. I guess I don't know I mean I guess that's regardless I will football. Maybe boxing like a until your arms get stupid long. That's like you're you're you know gap sports breaking but if you if you got like three foot arms four foot arms you're gonNA be boxing very appealing zero range. I think at some point. Someone's going to like slip. Pass your arms and you just can't I can't like you're stuck with them between your arms and you can't doing anything about it. I don't know the rules of boxing so I can't provide the same commentary differ football but I think you just hug and then they let you go back to the corners. Can you hug a person anymore? Oh I don't think you can think you're honest people. I not why can't hugger person? It's not it's not. Can you up person? It's how many people can you? Yeah so the problem. Is that because you from you? Yeah your elbows. You can't like get your arms. I guess I guess you sort of use them with your upper arms. I'M GONNA take over 'cause please my what I went to is kind of the range of motion problem that you were alluding to right here so if you are with me right now you take your arm and stick it out right which direction towards your sides with okay. You don't with your palms up your palms up not doing okay. Now close your elbow as much as you can close my oboe. Okay lately just bend your elbows in an old strongman flex yes strongman flex so your this is your elbow. Fleck Shin they call it or Flexi on I think it's fluctuation. That makes more sense to me. And so the average range for person is that you can bend your elbow hundred fifty degrees. I'm back towards you. Don't have a projector. I only just stopped. Flexi naive curtis earlier than that. I'm trying to figure out the angle I'm looking at it. So per Washington State Department of Health has said hundred fifty degrees which means you have a thirty degree angle off the horizontal that your forearm is sticking up from your upper arm so through some basic trigonometry which actually the most basic trigonometry 'cause attention signing thirty which is a half. There's a similarly a dead zone of about six inches around your own shoulder that you can't reach of course imagine a lot of you out there this. Marcus. I'm touching my shoulder right now. You idiot I literally just or that. You know that you said the distance is less than six inches. But you can't touch your shoulder with your wrist and the kind of count the distance from Mike your shoulder joint to your risk joint because very quickly the thickness of your arm becomes irrelevant in the calculations so there is this gap between your shoulder and your risk joint and starts out about is not five or six inches and which makes sense the math checks out when I do my my complicated sign thirty math so it's not big. It's you know our body functions because in addition to our hands so our hands covered this this gap that we can't reach we can touch her own shoulder. We can do all to do with our hands but as your arm gets longer. You know your your triangle get bigger and the gap is an increase from your shoulder joint to your wrist and so in just short too short years. Your hand is no longer going to be able to reach your shoulder anymore. But I'll be deal because how. How often do you really need to touch your shoulders and you can still use your other arms touch her shoulder that point but that dead zone is GONNA keep growing? My face for example is a little over a foot away from my shoulders so maneuver my you know if I moved my arms I have no problem touching my face with my restaurant anything but eventually that dead zone is going to grow towards the left of the rest of my right arm grows to the left and my head is eventually going to be in that dead zone so after about six years when I'm thirty four I'm going to have a two foot dead zone around each of my shoulder that my show that my hands can my hand can no longer reach so at thirty four I can no longer touch my own face with my hands and after that he thought he would yet me too and so and it goes from there so by age forty. I can't anything above my knees and by age fifty. I literally can't touch myself with my hands. So it sucks we are. We are smarter human beings. We are not without options so I think the first one and quite a practical one I think is the official term. The best one I could find that was consistent was reached grabber which is like one of those little things you get as a toy like the client. The claw hand thing. Apparently they're called reach grabbers when you use them for like adult purposes and like you know. T. REX ARMS. When they're for kids to your extra arms away better reach crabbers terrible name which covers very bad so as your arms get longer longer longer. You can make up for this gap that you have with a reach grabber and it's actually kind of gets you through basically entire life the longest reach grabber. I found by grapplers INC which is a cool name for a company a sixteen foot long. Why do they make a sixteen foot? Long reach grabber you ask. According to website. We had an interesting request one day for a paper company in Alabama. They had a giant machine that would feed a giant roll of paper into but was extremely difficult to reach the ends of the paper and feed it into the machine so they call us and ask if we can make a special longreach grabber just for them so someone decided paper machine in Alabama where the place to feed the paper and was sixteen feet off the ground which is not great design in my head. I think my I think my favorite quote about this long this long range grabber and I'm not going to go into the implications of this right now but quote because of its length. It is impossible to pick up anything with one hand in a horizontal position at any angle as a drawback to their sixteen foot. Long reach grabber. So you can go up to things but if you have to grab anything out you literally can't lift it. But that was the fun quote so kind of as far as like solutions. Go you have your. You have your reach grabber. It's going to be awkward to like you know like brush. Your teeth for things is going to be awkward too. Like shower is going to be just like really bad. Actually I think about your bathrooms only so big. You're everything only so big. I was thinking about like how you could sleep. Good at a certain point. The Room you're in won't be big enough anchor best options to like literally in the middle of the room. Hold your like full your arms over yourself but even still. There's like knocking room eventually. I Dunno it's pretty bad. Open floor concepts. Come at your best friend there. Yeah you have like a really high really high bed and let your arms dangle. Yeah I I did a little. I did a little checking out about like indoor spaces too so one problem you run into is if you are going down. A hallway in the hallway has say Ah Corner in it that you have to get around so if you're in a three foot hallway you can't turn anything around that corner that's longer than six and a quarter feet long so luckily you can bend your arm so like one section of your arm has to be that long so you can wait till you're like thirteen feet long which is going to happen. And oh no chart is gone my chart with all my arm linking. I have our minds. What are your arms thirteen feet? Long brisk thirteen feet Thirty nine four hundred twenty nine nine right now of twenty eight forty for me. Okay so yeah so when you're when you're forty start avoiding those hallways and when you're when you have four hundred dollars anything above a eleven feet is also a problem to get a little space between three put hallways and four foot hallways which like more commercial so like living. Space Hallways is three feet commercials. It's four plus sometimes five but four is not too uncommon. So you start avoiding certain sections of the mall and like tight you know bookstores and things. You guys got a plan that out going to need a lot of like I guess floor plans. Avoid China shops yet. Don't go into any shops. Also had a certain point even though floor plans are very good for you. Because there's a lot of space between the pages like There's gaps you can turn the pages a certain point you're going to have trouble reading those two so life is generally bad. You have your reach grabbers to help you and I think there's one last thing that you can Do to help yourself so one way I was imagining how this would be in real life like trying to get a feel for what your emotions going to be like is if you just stick your arms out straight this is basically what your upper arms are going to be like you know by themselves. Strengthen up above you know like just don't keep your appleseed looking out Okay fully extended and so this is your upper arm portion somewhere down after you know somewhere. Distance is your elbows. But they can't come back and reach anyway so they're kind of irrelevant so you can still not so much toucher face but you can have your face touchy arm. If you like. Move your arms forward and you can have like rub on your on your arm there. So I think you're going to want to use this base and develop. I guess like shoulder tools like I imagine. You have like shoulder pad. That has like some little gadgets. You got like a Swiss army knife. Almost you can pull out a fork and like stick it in the plate in front of you and it's like carrying your head and eat off your shoulder for. I don't really have any more than that. It's not written shoulder pad with forks on it got with that plan. The only tool you need to think means I'm done with my answer. I don't think I can top that at all too high bar. You said what you got so I also looked at a limiting factor that this hypothetical presents. But I didn't look at the arrange emotion. I looked at the weight of your arms because if your arms are getting him. Yeah Yeah if you're armed getting bigger obviously. They're getting heavier and heavier. But the rest of your body is staying. The same said like your ability to lift them. Increase that much so when will start to be a problem? I I figure out how much an arm actually ways and surprisingly there is a website that actually like they measured the percentage of your body weight that like every single body partways. I have you that website before on this podcast and I love it. Oh you have found so many fascinating websites. I don't remember what it was for but I was like I had the same. Actually I saw this exists. I love whoever did? This is so detailed but for men it was five point. Seven of your body weight. Is your arm that your weight and for women who was four point nine seven so since I'm a man and I one hundred sixty five pounds my arms way about nine point five pounds and as a fact you can take with you to your grave. Something I didn't ever expect to know so I also measure my arms and my arms are actually twenty two inches by just ranted up to two feet so that means that my arm weighs five pounds per linear foot. If that's that's like the I didn't ever expect to measure my the weight of my arms in linear pants per linear feet. But KYRIE are. Is it weird for you too? Because that's like a very much a civil engineering civil engineering thing that you're buying your arms like you're like oh now. I have this. In in my. That's like how we we measured like steel. Beams LINEAR foot. These delays ladies. Yes five pounds per linear foot so so now I had to figure out like well is the upper limit that our shoulders can less. Because that's basically were all. The weight is going to our shoulders so I looked at different. Like shoulder exercises and one. That is pretty ex- pretty intensive on shoulders is the the standing press. I think that's what it's called overhead standing press. It's a great exercise do all the time. Anyway it's my favorite movable Hogan's is basically like you have a barbell and you just use on your shoulders you lifted up lake upwards to the sky and then you bring back on keep on doing that and the Guinness World record holder for The most weight lifted by barbells are the most weight lifted. Doing the standing press in one minute was by Eamon Keane so I think this means like the total amount of weight including Multiple Reps. So they said that he weighed he. Lifted eight thousand eight hundred eighteen pounds in one minute. So like forty reps of two hundred twenty pounds let seems really disingenuous way to measure it whereas a weird way to measure it. They also had within an hour. So there's that too they didn't have eyelids. Give me an hour. I can have sixty five thousand pounds. It's not really what you're doing. Yeah I don't know why they didn't have a record for just one lift but they didn't so I use this and this is a barbell so like it's split up between both of our hands are both of our arms so that means that each shoulder is lifting a hundred and ten pounds so I figured okay. That's this is like the world record holder so this is my upper limit. I'm going to be generous to me and say that I can achieve this generous generous word for that. Yes so the age that I won't be able to lift my arms anymore. Once my arms get too heavy and they go above a hundred and ten pound. Pounds is at age forty nine. So it's actually a decent amount of my life where I can lift my arms sort of sad. I don't know why it's a good amount amount of time. I could lift. My arm. Had Nice long arm lifting life. Well it turns out that your shoulders strength actually isn't the limiting factor because before you hit that your arms are actually getting it long enough. Where your elbow hits the ground? So I'm five ten like from my feet to my hit the top of my head. I'm ten feet Arab five or ten generous again and from my shoulder to the ground is five feet so my elbow will grow to five feet touch the ground when I'm thirty seven years old and then at that point my shoulder isn't supporting the weight anymore. Because it's just on the ground now. What is happening is that my forearm is still putting on my by Steph. My bicep is now doing the lifting if I want to like move around and stuff so much. The natural next step was to look at the world record for bicep lifts and the Guinness World Record for the Most Weight. Lifted by arm curl in one minute was by the same guy even keen. He had like all he had like twenty two different weightlifting records. Do you think maybe guests will record? Tired of people saying they were the strongest. And go on check on that. There's like ANA WE WE'RE GONNA we're GonNa in-house the weight records from now on guys. If we just got this eaten keen guy is pretty strong. GonNa use his records. And then just not look at your stuff. He used to have twenty six records and then for them are broken so he lost some of them but he still has twenty two right now but he's record for Bicep curl or arm. Curls is what they call them was In one many he he lifted seven thousand nine hundred and thirty seven pounds or thirty reps of two hundred sixty four pounds in a little unclear whether they didn't list whether it barbells or dumbbells. I'm going to assume it was barbells because I refuse to believe it's possible to do that with dumbbells. Okay do you. Two hundred sixty pounds per arm. That seems ridiculous to me Maybe it's possible. That sounds ridiculous. Like our office. Got we. We installed a small five person office. And right now it just basically has like free weights and like a pull up bar so real Anna Bench bench to it. So it's getting fancy but we got a set of mixed waits for for the hand held ones and there was like three. Rosset that went from like ten to eighty pouts and we actually just immediately set back the third row when we thought we couldn't get them like on the shelf over like we're not using as you can have this back which is probably sad for the delivery guy because we're on the second floor and we don't have stairs so you have to get to carry them all back down high also got weights Delivered to me at one point and felt bad for the delivery guy especially because it's just like Oh yeah it's not even like a cool thing it's worth it. It's like it's just like I got. I bought the thing. That's the only thing going forward is that it's heavy when he delivered it to. My apartment is in a box. It was like really flimsy in the first place it was like the boxes like falling apart cheeses but yeah assuming that what he lifted was a barbell that means that each bicep that he left each biceps could lift one hundred thirty two pounds and the way to my forearm would hit that weight at age. Eighty says actually lake pretty far into my life. It's not bad. I lived a good arm lifting life and actually type all my notes into Google. Docs and I've for that point. I typed in the sentence. My biceps can lift honoring thirty two pounds. Okay and Google docs did the little like grammar underlying thing under can so I clicked it and said consider changing to can't doesn't thanking lift that much. I guess it's right with the cigarette burns like we senior three. None of them were gym memberships. So and interesting because when I changed two hundred than it works than it. They'd think I can lift honored. It doesn't say there's an error anymore with does that actually grammatical error is not a grammatical error. It's a your week air. Just find your your statement a little little unlikely Chris. Yeah you have to check out like the setting that's like David Left and you say yes and then lets you hire just to think someone at Google program that they must have like. There's no way they didn't have to can't be can't be like a learning algorithm so there is someone in the Google Office. Who just like my bicyc- could live two hundred pounds. And they're just like a cat and they just added it to the auto correct the joke so that that was the upper limit of lifting my arms. But I don't actually need to like support my own arms if I could if I don't intend to use my arms of say don't want thunder drag but I can just lay. Put them on little wheel things or something and wheel around just have like a support on my elbow and then support on my wrist and then. I'm good Right Little Gym Scooter. Yeah but the thing is when I do that. I've created a little arm bridge because just a thing spanning over to supports and we're talking about my civil engineering before I want to look at when your arm would break from the weight of your arm. Oh Okay not looking forward this mental limit but here we go so I found a study where they tested the strength of bone specifically sheep bond because his easy from the for them to get and it was like three properties they wanted to do is fairly straight instead of bending curvy so as easier for them to do tests and they used sheep Tibia so basically a test is just they did a three point bending tests which is basically they put a bone on to supports and then they push the middle and see how much force in the middle of the takes before breaks and what they found was that the bone had a bending capacity of about thirty foot pounds of bending moment. It's called moment that force that Aziz continue with the engineering. I'm trying to think of a different way to say other than moment because most people don't know what that is but it's called moment. Yeah now I think I think we're just think this is the part of the podcast where you kind of talk the engineering through and it sounds all smart and good like we know what we're talking about and then nobody actually checks to call you out on it. Yeah and all the people that do know what moments and all these things that are super happy because I know these words right but the mads the pain so I'm not going to think about it because I don't WanNa fall along with those. The capacity of the balloon obvious. I think like all the muscles around and stuff would add a little more capacity. I didn't really bring that into my situation because it's a lot more complex. I didn't want to do that so I'm saying that the capacity your arm is thirty foot pounds of moment. Obviously as your arm grows that means that the span of your arms grind from the to support so like just imagine a bridge getting longer and longer without any support in the middle. It's obviously more likely to fall down. So the length of your arm where it hits. The capacity of what can hold is seven feet so once he hit seven feet. You're Boehner you're gonNA fracture and you actually hit this yet. It's GonNa be your forearm because you have the support your elbow and support at your wrist so your gets this long at age forty one. He's actually pretty early on is not good. No that's not good. Let's say I would like I don't like that my arm is like even Within within a factor of ten of when it would just break under its own weight like it feels real fragile now. Even seven feet is a lot like I imagined. My arm extended to like the end of the room sitting in. That's about seven feet and they would just break under. Its own great. Yeah I hate that. I hate that a lot. So you can supplement this by just putting more supports so like where it would break? You just put another support in that. It won't break and if you happen to live until one hundred which is unlikely in this scenario with your arm growing this fast but you did make it a hundred. Then you'd need ten supports per arm test. Prevent your arms from breaking or you could just have like a super long skateboard situation thing. Oh support all the way to add support as needed. Yeah but the thing is if you want to actually do something with your arm if you WANNA lift your arm. Cosette thirty or that That seven foot long thing was if is just like sitting on the supports but if you lift your arm then the bone is essentially taking double the the load because you took away one of the supports so you cut the lengthened half and now your forearm can only be three and a half feet before breaks which is not good again not idea no so if you want to do anything. I think really my my final image that had of me doing stuff with these super long arms is I'm gonNA ditch the supports and I'm going to hire people to carry my arms and they'll just like puppet me around. I can still like pick stuff up with my hands so I'll just be like move my hand over to that Cup to that Mug then I'll grab it and then I'll say move it to my Move it to the table or something. And that's how I l of my life as always Chris you've managed to pick the terrible social solution show. Yeah I didn't say that I would clean gutters. That wasn't like you. You've hired effectively. Like thirty seven right hand men to just carry her arm or out to is actually right hand. Men and thirty seven left hand men. Technically guys had a great mental image. And I to say before we go into the into the would you rather side because it's great and it's in my head. I want to get it out. Okay so what are the things that was in the back of my mind When we're talking when we first talked about this question about like your arms getting longer I imagine like a monkey that how they walk on all fours like at the point where your hands at the ground and then probably a point where under so long you could like walk on your hands which of course strength wise. You're breaking be terrible but I kind of abandoned that and I just hit like the the point where I would've loved to have done the math on it was what have you got a wheelchair with bigger and bigger and bigger wheels. And because you're under so long you can get a lot of speed the momentum on this baby. That would be awesome okay. Sure I'm glad you're with the enter you. I thought that was good. Maybe I'll do that on the side and just like post little something about it doing era behind the scenes. Oh can do in the behind. The scenes and Patriot exclusive episode. Just do the pitcher. If you enjoy the show go to. Www DOT patriots dot com slash of certain hypotheticals? Where we do a behind the scenes episode every month. Where we talk about the previous month. We did we talk about how we make the show and this time we're GONNA talk about super fast long arm wheelchair race. You remember to do it. We're going to do it. Write it down somewhere so you gotTA write this down. Man. Don't let me forget. I've promised it now anyhow answer. Would you rather question Chris yes? Would you rather be caught in a human size spiderweb waiting on a giant spider or stuck in a giant sized mouse trap waiting on a giant rat? The rat necessarily I assume imbo situations. They're gonNA eat me right your most likely. I would definitely prefer the spider because it avoids the whole chap thing snapping at me. Ooh that would suck. Wouldn't it? Yeah it's like a two for you get like the pain of the of the initial smashed in this stuck there while you're in pain and then the rat combs. I have a counter argument. A giant spider is at the counter. Argue no so so aright. The master mousetraps is that at least the way they're designed they're generally pretty much lethal on impact What depends on where it hits you right. That's 'cause you're waiting on the on the giant rat so the impact is not killed. You Okay so in that case your spine is probably broken paralyzed from the waist down which sounds not. GonNa Lie Pretty Bad. Yeah that sounds worse to me right now. It seems pretty obvious. I'm trying to think of if there any counter arguments. So the count. I think the counter argument is giant. Spiders spiders you know. Sting their prey and that dissolve them from inside. The question is do you feel that is that is there a you know. I think you feel it anesthetics in the I'm dissolving Your Oregon. I'M GONNA GUESS NO I don't Know Ryan Evolutionary. That would have happened. So that's the thing so the giant rat is gonNA probably much which yeah it's GonNa Munch on you but you know eating. You live as a strong big front sharp shovel teeth. So I think you're GONNA be dead pretty quick. It's going to be a gruesome like ten seconds but I think you're GONNA be dead pretty quick with that counterargument. Spiders wait at their website wasn't even follows on immediately goes and deals with it whereas I don't know how long you be waiting in the Nostra. Oh here's what if the spider wraps you up in the Silk Cocoon and then you slowly suffocate to death. I usually inject you with the stuff as the wrapping. You Up. Oh they don't that you're not getting away with that one No God I think. It's actually spider. Jesus that S. Why in this scenario is the most? Why did the most set up the mousetrap the masses and opportunist the Raspberry Tunis? You're a rodent of unusual size. It's a rou anyway. So he's still ru like the the cooking thing. Yes it is okay cool you got there just want to confirm to check with the cooking gay. Let me tell you. The cooking guy who spread would only counts coconut vacate. Hold on the one. Yes it is baking too. I also cook lots of other things. You know this come on. He cooks chicken. Parm many chicken Parmesan is so good at cooking. It's delicious I make more common okay. I'll have to cooking here regardless I'm gonNA share our fringe really bad related joke right now please please do. I'm trying to hold on Shit. I know I remember. The punchline is over the setup which is bad because also bad all of its bad. You need to make some some other bad jokes to buy you Taj Remember. You're rude jokes actually. I want to be perfectly clear is not my joke. I could do it. But it's going to be a very elaborate lab. I mean not elaborate ruse. I'm pretty sure this it's just something like like I tried. I tried to cook it Australia. Is it a kangaroo? God I hate you. I'm pretty sure it's just something like like. I tried to sneakily make a gravy. But they saw through my ruse or something like that. It's not good built it up too much. I didn't. I never said it was good. I did not intend to build this whatsoever. Very bad joke. I tell them every time you built up a lot. Well I WANNA I wanNA build a machine that makes reform. It's going to be a root Gu. They call them a Rube Goldberg Machine. Okay that's not bad. That's a pretty good one actually. It hasn't actually work Goldberg. Machines intentionally. Don't do anything you know what. Let's just move on because it's a real one does because it's not. It's not a roof Goldberg Goldberg Machine. Anyway it takes a really roundabout way to make Ruth Kolpak or are you already know. Let's please leave this weird tangent. We've gone on what's worse. The giants fighter the giant rat. I say Chinese fighter. I say Yeah I choose to experience the giant spider man. I just can't I. Don't WanNa feel my organs dissolve. I think that's just I can imagine and not really imagined but I can pretend I can imagine what getting crushed in rat draws is like the unknown of what it feels like to dissolve from. The inside is turning the opposite. I'M GONNA go with giant having a really bad stomach bug but just in your entire body which doesn't sound great but it's also not being eaten alive by China Trad. I also don't think it's that team. I also still think you're going to be in more pain for longer with the the trap because of the initial trap thing you might be unconscious. Yeah Yeah that's true says you're waiting. You're not waiting when you're unconscious. Okay Fair that is also true. And that's that's that's a deciding factor for me okay. So you guys both on Spider. I'm on the giant rat That brings the episode that brings us to the episode. And because I already did are good. Good patriots on promoting. I don't do that again so really that's all. I need to do so. Please join us next week when we answer the following question. What if land and water swamped?

Episode 110: What if cows had hands? - Lightning Round 11

"The. Food for was what if we had nine lives blooded pits UPS or if money through on trees if we did nappy. Back, then. Some certain. Medical. Everybody and welcome to absurd hypotheticals the show we overthink dumb questions. So you don't have to I'm your host markets later and I'm joined here today by Chris Ye and Ben Storms say hi guys. Hey, I'm Chris. Hey. I'm Ben Guys. That feels like it's been four ever since we've done one of these lightning rounds but that's where we are today I. Guess because our last one was the mega lightning round which was just a whole different animal. It's technically still lightning round kind of it was still lighting around. It was a hundred questions of like a lot of lightning quite storm. The estimated six to nine questions we're about to answer but I'm glad we're back I love doing these episodes and I'm very excited. They are some of my favorite. You'll often I wasn't really saying recurrently trying to buy target over the question list. Professional host. Very very first question here is what if we actually them explain real quick. I'd like to do that. Some I. Don't know if I do that too often anyways to the audience. Yeah. Typically for for episodes we we do a bunch of research and we'll prepare answer on one specific question auto lightning rounds we. And we try do a bunch in like a lightning round setting where you very fast blitz thunder lightning and all those things. But anyway, what if life was a musical but if life was a musical Does that mean everyone is good at singing or that you you're you sing regardless of whether you're good. I think he's seeing single garage. Good. Yeah. Well, I think it's kind of one of those things where everyone happens to be good enough and if you just suck at singing maybe your background character, maybe that's the drink. Herbal class system. Whether you're. A physics in fourth class system of like you can go through your day maybe a much better worse to be the center of attention 'cause like you get to talk out, you get to sing out your problem, the center of attention. But then everyone's GonNa know all your Shit. Like if you're doing your the lights dim and you're doing your internal monologue about how much you got damn hate Jerry. Jerry onto. Jerry. Just to hear that. And you probably don't get your Jerry's monologue maybe juries and very good sing and he gets to see no privacy. So important question. Is there like an orchestra? I assume there's music playing just from Lake everyone either. Yeah. Yeah and I imagine it being orchestral music. I mean not necessarily just like, Disney. Style music I guess. It depends on it depends on what your mood is. It might be you might be feeling a rap that day that might be it's your emotional state you get your second Hamilton. Amilton you're you're trying to overthrow the Brits and suddenly like you're rapping everywhere is happens you know do you have to right? I mean rhyming is a big part of songs I feel like it's not necessarily part of song can musicals. Like? Show yeah. Like if. It was just one of the shows where like they're singing normal sentences. I think like lemons is like the right kind of. it depends I've effectively already exhausted my knowledge of music having gone into any detail on anything. Limited. Yeah. In vague terms like if you ask me a specific about it, I would not be able to answer but yet I'm aware I'm aware that that is a musical. Here's a very important question I can't remember which a musical where literally everything is an song or as a subcategory musical. I don't think it has to be everything's a song. I think it's Because like lot of Disney movies you consider musicals see but I don't. I think that technically those might not he musicals Korean wikipedia there were there musicals? Definition, the most important part of that has shown up early, which is going to Google and look at the declaration or something what is a musical? I? Don't think he has to be everything I think it just has to be some sort of song the a character's singing. Yeah. This this definition is just saying like we're singing and dancing player in central park dancing I hadn't thought about the dancing, but they're gonNA be dancing I also thank dancing isn't necessary for musical, but it is a big part in a lot of things according to this dictionary definition. It says essential part right sung through musical. So specific subsection musicals is sung through musical where everything is is Sung but guide. Okay. Yeah. Those help Hamilton is in that category. Yes. Every humira son I mean I think the first point that we made is probably the most salient point about just it's it's you don't get to ventnor stuff but if you're good at singing, you'd have to bet your stuff if you're good at singing than your major character, which means all the good stuff and bad stuff happens to you all the background characters just like not interesting stuff. Here is one thing about being a background character if you're. Musical it means you're. Dancing. It does mean you're dancing you have to be a dancer so you have to be able to do one of the two. Either singer dance you gotTA. Pick. Dancing all the time since. That was possibly. Would you rather? At some point. Would you rather? Yeah, it was. Would you rather sing dance all the time Marcus was an episode we had a guest Oh. Yeah. What the? What? The one actual thing of the one episode I missed podcast it's fantastic I. Think I think what would you guys let on that which one's better singing or dancing? I don't remember what I said. I don't prefer it was if I was I was singing because Dent said, Dante knows too tiring. I think well, I guess the conclusion is that if life musical things with suck for everybody being character or not Alec Musicals Sale I do to be nice. All right. Here's another one. What if we only used acronyms? How'd you describe what acronym using like it? What if someone doesn't know what the acronym is what the acronym means? How would you describe it? Can you like is it is it? Possible. I, don't know if it is there will be some very common acronyms that like everyone to see. You could try to use common ones to describe it somehow. There's you can communicate at least minimums where you know you can be like W T.F Al. Okay. But here's here's a hypothetical in this hypothetical for you, Marcus. So you say you say like is very easy to use like say L. O. L. for lot how loud what if you wanted to I don't know behind land lakes butter. L. Be. Is it like super important that it's weighing lakes? I mean it could be I think what I think you can I think Ben is saying is you can't multi-purpose akrons without confusing the issue though. is against using her neck and M.'s because they're too common terms was not so much laws as there's no, there's no law against using gibberish language excel just naturally happened yet people just don't do it because he can't be understood. So what does reduce that? We just have to use the common ones imagine we would established you know like like. Up to four letters, all the acronyms are used up. It's like in some online games like people just in whatever they want. They have these preset phrases and you're stuck to those. kind of like. Only, a moat. Yeah this sounds terrible. I made you can still communicate through that. Most do better when you have the negative wants to where the they and games now is that really avoid having anything negative that you can say like? I don't know the extent of your thinking a game that removed oops as a and a mode. Yeah. Like you can't say oops because it can just you could use it sarcastically too often when you're when you're. When your opponent eft up and made that make them feel bad about themselves. So through like you can say like good game, which is still you could to spam that make someone feel bad but yeah. I. Guess it just show infinitely with how we use our our words. What does use context to get by intone Steph Galanga a lot of inflection carrying a lot of water in this world law context and meaningful glances. So really it's Kinda just how we communicate anyway nobody's the correct words we say on are entirely audio based medium. Yeah well. What if he were stuck in a time loop? How. Long is this time loop? Question because we could technically be stuck in a time right now he could just at least. Twenty nine years long right. I mean the typical leap is a day right? So we have were. So what if what if you're a groundhog day? Yeah. What would you do? I don't know what I would do because everything you do is pointless then well, here's the question. Here's thing that is like kind of that. Like is tricky about the groundhog day because obviously this stuck in a loop thing happens to you. You know generally out of the blue and you don't know why it's happening and there's something some key thing that you have to do to break the loop you have to come to a personal realization or murder the president or something like just something where so the like the implication that like Oh, yeah, I'll just. Spend the first week doing kind of normal stuff, and then I would just start like burning down my house and all that you've got to be careful because what if burning down your house you know on the on the cycle, you burn your house down. You haven't do the other thing that breaks your loop to you never know when it's can answer you gotTa. Think that it's going to be the last day of the loop. How long do you think you guys just mess around the time before you start trying to break it? I feel like there's a period of time Ravi like there's some shit. I can try to do now like I never try to do before I. Think I'd probably mess around for like a mother to I think so too that sounds like it sounds like a weirdly Nice vacation, right? It kind of does if you you can. Call in sick every day because it's the same day and just like you know you can't obviously can't do anything more than. A day trip or something, but you guys do whatever you want to spend your time watching everything on. Netflix until you've run out of things to watch because we're not making anything do. Why. Is that what you would choose? You are consistently battling Chris. I. Worry about you gross in the quarantine. A little better is a lot of stuff on Netflix. So last year long time you have so many hobbies how do you not doing any of those because when you finish, it's unlikely at the beginning of time if you haven't done it yet so it's pointless. He actually report on that one I like writing a book doesn't particularly helpful. For Day you could plan a whole bunch of books you can't like keep. Yeah I'd have to memorize them. I don't know I feel like I could board games were added. To my hobbies Bergen Borges drifting. I could like quote unquote design in a day like I could do play testing be like, Hey, I came up this game idea today and throw it out there that could keep iterating on that. I could actually make progress on a board game feel like it's easier to keep track of progress for a board game than it is for a book Oh yeah. No because all the board games because you're you're going through iteration. So all you have to do just skip to the gas start with. It says so much about all of us that he thinks you're saying and what my first thought was like I can either like fly somewhere. It doesn't matter how much it costs and like I wouldn't how long time ever whatever or I could just like buy stuff for the fanciest meal possible and keep trying to cook every day until I like nail cooking. Yup Yes he those are good. Those are good ideas to people with healthy lives who aren't real with guilt for not doing more at home and work and hobbies I mean. So ran hogs day he learns how to play the piano. So that is true. Yeah. Developing skills probably one of the best things you can do you have a hobby or skill that that transfers to the day that's probably how you would do it, and the question is how long you want to stay in it before you start trying to break it. WHOA, Chris won't be the same was your loop day. We'll be the first thing you would do to try to break it. I really have nothing to go off for what's causing it. I'd probably. I'd probably try to do something really bizarre in not normal at all. That is the worst thrive. Why? would. You repeated the question back to me. I didn't repeat the question. He asked where's the weird thing that you would do in our at the time of year like I would do something really weird. But I mean the implied questions. I know what you mean. I know what you mean Chris 'cause like I feel like you have to like you look for like was there someone important who died on this day or like? Is there like yet to look for some something weird about the day right I guess you would have to do research. So I guess starting research on what actually happened the day before. The day of to to complicate things. Yeah that's true. But you have plenty of time to research both. Yeah right? Right exactly. God I actually now that I asked the question about like how long way to try to fix things I feel like I would honestly just like spend more time than I want to admit just like cooking a lavish meal and watching a movie every year you'll be awhile. Yeah. Yeah. I also realized that this is actually covered on comfortable question to really think about because mostly what's the ironic thing you think you're punished getting would get punished for Dive deep into your psyche and say it makes you a shitty person asking to say that I was going to do something really weird and not normal but I wouldn't go as far as like kill someone. When he found out, you had to kill someone or south of time limit Chris which kills them, and then who who is this person how no Steve Yes yep sorry Steve. Steve That's if we're GONNA, timely we'd all go kill Steve. One of our listeners Steve and we just freaked him out. Oh, that would be Turkey because our next question is what if people didn't have names People Stephen Safe? Now. I want to say that my first impression this question is that for me nothing would change because I don't remember any place I lean. Back, yeah. Oh man thank God. I mean. We'd probably just go off of physical descriptors right? Like this is a weird question because I feel like we would develop names naturally right? Like we're not giving one at birth, but we would just eventually start calling people certain things maybe everyone sorry. So so I guess it wouldn't be it wouldn't be constant though right like unless if you're someone who's like seven and a half feet tall, you're going to call tall do lot like that's going to happen. But for the most part, it's just gonNa be someone's going to find some relatively like prominent combination of features about you and call you that I guess president nickname though. Acceptable but but it's not like it's not like 'cause I was I was thinking that but I'm assuming under like the logic of this question we would never think to take one of these and assume everyone will always call us that or like ask people or call us that right there's just people would pick it when they see us what do you just pick their relationship to you as the name what if it's friend and your group of friends and then he could open the door to door to is as good if not more door. The door minds Maurya. There we go. I. Think you. Brother. Plumber how you do and? I think it would happen like I. Is The toughing is is. Really Weird. If he went to the grocery store there when you know like I'll be employers like hello, custom her out like that as terrified I mean most of the time you don't really need like if you're with people, you don't really need to say names just talked to them or say like him and point. Yeah. It's when you're talking about someone that isn't with us at the problem. Yeah. So That's where we're on trying to figure out is that is that I feel like just by necessity, a lot of things people are referred to as will be physical characteristics because if you're trying to describe someone to someone else like that you know or thinks that people did right because they're like there are a lot of people with black hair, right? Yeah. So you'd have to yell like really specific but. You'd be like that person that drove my car yesterday. Yeah. Maybe this doesn't actually that bad I think you could get by yeah. Right. So we we we can use other things to call people besides their names and as evidenced by that we do that anyway. For Real like I don't think I've said either of your names wants to step aside yet I. Yeah, I said my name Marcus is all of Oliver Names once I definitely said your name once Chris in a second time I can time. This is probably this is probably one from my brain for months ago What if cows had hands? This is a joke from A. From an Thank in real like Oh. Let's put it in lightning. was. Yeah I forget I, forget what episode we were talking about Callahan's. We're probably talking about cow Hans. Okay, saying we were talking about cowhands when the question is what cows had hands isn't helpful. Tell me anything. No. Like the thing that you. Oh, I can't remember the name of the person taking care of your cows. Cowhand I see. My brain is broken. Okay. We're good. This is definitely from another episode though I remember taking it from there putting that year. Okay. Dr. Remember the context. So what accounts had hands? Hands. God I hate it do they still walk on four limbs and they just walk on their hands to her they walking on two legs and they have hands I. Think I think all the hoops place of hands Oh also have four of them are mixed. The front ones I was just matching to for some reason in my mind all four of them being hands is way worse than just the front to. And I don't know why that is worse in my mind to it shouldn't be what's because what I imagine a Callahan's. I imagine it standing up on time legs, and then it's just like walking around like a person not even when I think of it being on all four legs it's so weirder if all four legs and enhance yeah, I, agree what else doesn't make any sense just like this like bears. Have Hands. Like, this shouldn't be a super weird thing. Is basically a hand yet my brain is melting when I think about us. So let's let's let's establish first off. Does this make cows bipedal? I would say no I don't think so I don't think they could balance. Yeah. Did Not, work Castanos hind legs not like like for Nixon created time, but like like a horse right can coury rough. So, weird image I think the answer is the I think can run so they should be able to Casca jumped because elephants the only ones that can jump. So cows half your job, which means they should be able to stay on their hind legs. I've only seen cows stand. There's apparently there's apparently a video clip from Indonesia of a baby cow didn't have front legs that could walk around on Hind legs. And I hate, US. Oh No. Oh, why am I going to watch this? I can't imagine the balance like the the wait how it's distributed I feel like like a a fully grown cow yet won't be able to do it. Yeah. I guess Babycare Oh I hate this video. Oh no because we're still pretty big though, right? Yeah. Very there's still definitely much less like like media than a full-sized cow. So. If they have hands so that I mean they have opposable thumbs I would say, so I guess the difference between like Hannah PA and Apollo had them because he would say that like like a monkey hands, right? Yeah. I guess the cow if the cowboy hat hands, would it milk itself? Could you teach it to milk itself? Oh you. Her. Is. Probably what you do. I feel like this this might be related to why we asked the question the first place. But The Path that would lead to one of cows at hands. If, cows hands, they could milt themselves and you get so much efficiency in somebody would be out of a job. Okay. So if we talked about this before clearly the reason I don't remember is my brain has like black that out for my own safety and might have been the episode where we had the woody rather of Would you rather milk a cow for like a really long time or whatever or would you rather wash dogs? How would we have got? Okay. I it doesn't matter. Point being. Guess. Retrain calcium knock himselves boom. That's all we need. What if all objects were spheres so he did what if our people are fears now all objects do people can't objects I would say, yes let's. Let's not talk about people because they did a whole episode on. It'd be really hard to sleep. The earth gets slightly taller. It is no longer no blades zeroed. Don't think we would notice that is the earth and object what accounts on object. Okay. So I guess you like manmade objects maybe if we only knew how to make stick is not an. I love the idea that somehow someone mayors fear was like, yes that everything that. I really complicated if it's not manmade things like what about crass, right? Yeah. I think things just don't make sense men met man can. Everything that is made is now fear. Okay, question. How do you make a sphere with a spear? Other I. What She's bigger sphere. You have you have more than just the one object. That is tricky. I guess they're all handmade like from nothing you've. Put Shit together in a spirit shape. How do you make the I? Fear of not like you can like cut in half because once you can happen ticket parts anymore. Becomes a sphere? But then. You may get. Collapses on itself and becomes a sphere by the way. There's something wrong with me because this this like impossible situation is less uncomfortable with my brain to think about the council Hans, you know you just come on and all you do is complain about how your brain is melting. Let you guys just keep melting my brain. That sounds like your problem. What what about clothes? Oh He put a hole in his fear that still counts as a seat I don't know catches this fear what M- do you just have a hamster ball with like sixty percent opacity? The, that technically would be a sphere. So I guess, are we saying things can be an open ables fear? I guess that that makes things a lot more little. Bowls and cups and lots of useful things, bras her back. I, think you can also use like a hugh had a sharpened bowl. You could use that to carve a sphere. So the edge of your sharpened double barrel bowl is now the new tool. Yeah. It's really hard to us about kite yourself because all the parts that aren't sharp are around. I guess only only half of the remers chartres. Just put on gloves you'll be. Head Klaus. Fear. The. Gloves bill things like playstation one character. All right talk about this. I guess the correct response what if you could walk on water? The be cool. It's not that useful but right? Yeah. There's nothing like if you walk into the ocean, there's nothing that there right you can like you can be a lifeguard I. Guess if you can walk on water choose to go under the water otherwise not very good lifeguard. I'm sure if you fall over land and water, can you then climb back out onto the water? Can you walk on stare water water stairs water stairs. Waters. More effort making water stairs you want just going around whatever fucking it's. GonNa be something useful here like. I don't think there is I mean I think life credit here. You'RE GONNA get cranberry farming. Can Be farmed. That's I mean then you have to duck down to, yeah you're GONNA have cranberry a lot of back problems not an us like a scooper us like a scooper or something like a like a like a pool net to pick up the cranberries I don't know how they collect the cranberries honestly know either waist deep in water I'm like. Well, what if you're about I'd probably be convenient. Maybe. Could you could you play water polo? You'd be very good at waterfall probably aren't any rules against walking on water et he's probably technically legal. Well. Okay. So here's the. Roosevelt staying in the water but not that means in the pool or in the water. So here's a problem with water poll idea. Are you infinitely faster more maneuverable? Well, no. So we're saying if you fall down, you fall in the water, right? Okay. Someone Graduate Ankle. And players are allowed three major fouls in a game. There you go. So much water polo now. Because he definitely can't get out of the water to get back on top of the water. So what it means that you start. Make. Team start with one foul already. So you have a minor advantage unless you start with a ball in which case you could probably just like you know happy feet around a couple of players probably also your throws going to be so much stronger than anyone else's that's doing it from the water. So I with the throwing the big ant you have is that it's a lot easier for. You to fake out the goalie a does it goalie goalie? Okay. Got The goal is to like jump and commit to the throw to throw it. You dislike pump fake and you just a lot higher here just a lot higher than everyone. Yeah. That's also you can use like thirty five more muscles actually is always being higher worst because he can't the balls low, you can throw a ball down. At water level like your shopping. All what does the goal of water bill actually look quake actually now take a short soccer goal right es short soccer dole and imagine like if the person in the water from their shoulders at the top of the water if they put their hands up, they can reach the top of it. Okay. I'm looking at pictures. Yeah. Super Easy to throw into the goal. Why would you ask me what it looks like you've already looking at pictures I just looked it up like after I asked you. I guess we learned a lesson the ordering of things we'd do then. There's a big gaping pause but when you ask what is your question me but answered you so yeah. Yeah. Plenty of times google earth kind of feel like most your shot is coming from the top though and they can defend you. They had to defend like less than the net. I mean you can throw it over all the other players. Yeah. But the goalie is the one last trick on it is what if you could walk on water? Not if you see what if you could run and jump on water it's a good point. To Walk in which case it serves no purpose except starting a occult and I'll see probably couldn't even start a cold because magicians do the walk water triple A. Thomason actually believe that you're doing. True except maybe other magicians start a cult of magicians who no, you're not full of Shit. I mean, if people are under the water that you're walking on it I, think they'll believe it. But magicians people go under the water. They'll people swim underneath have never seen this act. If you do like some transparent platforms at at water level and they just walk across the is generally has performed I think or who knows not every magician reveals their tricks. I think it'd be pretty obvious with the trick was if you're under the water this is probably a true. Yeah. Depends the props are really. How good their water for some reason? It depends on if it's really shitty water, you won't be able to see it because it'll be too murky. Speaking of water what have you could never shower and I'm GONNA say no bass don't just say take a bath. No water in general. Are there ways to clean herself without water there? Probably? Are I mean? Okay can you just go outside in the rain? This is actually legitimate question because I feel like I said, yes. Yeah. If that's led than like what about like lakes and rivers and stuff? I feel like I feel like going in like a lake is much dirtier water than rainwater though probably like you could clean yourself, you're always like a lake which is probably better than smiling you haven't showered in several months but not ideal. Aren't you kind of torn on the raining now? Okay. Let's do without the rain thing I. Yeah. Let's say not like no water general Milwaukee Water in general so you can't basil if. They've sure and besides the answer of you smell and get lots of nasty skin diseases is there any comedy left after that? Do you think like if you just got like a giant air blower and just stood in front of it, you get sort of Kinda, green maybe. No. Like a a heated one so like I don't know. I think the problem is like like oils right? Yeah Yeah. Als US thinking bacteria like if it's heated, could maybe kill bacteria you WANNA microwave yourself. Like. How hot it would have to be probably have to be pretty high. Yeah. But they do that with like eggs. Don't they they that's the word pasteurize pasteurized eggs. Can You pasteurize a human? Kidding you. I sure is a human. Arts, nope. Not Breast Milk not what I want minus Miller. I. Don't think you're gonNA find any answers. I'm not I article called why you should collect your own urine not going down that road. I'm going to say that from the lack of answers you probably can't patch. Also from like thinking about it. What do you like astronauts do do they just use water wait? Could you just go to at like for some health for health reasons and thanks could you just go to like a tanning booth and get some that good uv light UV radiation and just kind of like do that. But that clean you. Find the. Which is ideal but at least. It's better than nothing I guess yeah. answer astronauts by the way they squeeze soap onto the from pouches and then use like water pouches to. Okay. So they do use water. So dues water. My mental images somewhat just allow themselves and then just like asking their astronaut. waterbomb. ME. A large tour of. Import to shower with. Yes. There are different ways get clean. You get like you could get like a a a one of those one of a stone or the stones that women using the showers I assume you just upbraid yourself one of those stones. Oh. God. That sounds awful. Also, isn't that for like your feet. Your body like a minister. Abrasion as a cleaning method, you could use they have like waterless washing machines for your clothes. Like what they used for like dry-cleaning because you don't WanNa do that Oh. Yeah. What do they use for dry-cleaning? Don't even know what that is. So look at once because I didn't actually know how it worked. It's basically a regular washing machine but have you seen water they use chemicals solvents. Now I feel like at some point I saw an article about washing machine that doesn't use liquid but I don't remember Google in. Yeah, I guess I just don't understand how this would work. Wire machine this washing cheese uses. A tiny bit of water a still is water. Oh i. see how we set this question up for ourselves of I think we've dropped the ball guys because the next question our lightning round is what if everyone stopped showering things stink. I think we're supposed to talk about the previous one hot minute and they go on and then bring it to everybody. Well, what about all the bad things? If, everyone's stopped showering is basically this living in the Middle Ages right. Yet water usage is way down. It's nice. Positive Bright side known will judge you for not showering. Yeah. Like I guess that's what it is. Is that like if no, my warranty in life remains unchanged. If no one showers the social stigma of not showering does not they're all right. But there is disease and stuff not ideal I mean, do we know the concept of showering and? A missing that could be cleaner, but we're not. What would you use your shower for if you stop showering? I don't think we'd have showers. I would sell my shower. Who would you sell it to? No one shower. Shoot you're right. You're right. We're done I don't talk about shower we have to get. Off Yes how would you improve the puppy smackers question onto this list? It's her. How would you improve the people I want to do? This is the whole goddamn question. You guys would not let me. Yeah. So I guess I should probably start off then with my might Berlin ideas I don't have yet. Okay. So first off one thing very disappointing about the puppy bowl no rules enforcement like at all like. A just throw these goddamn dogs in their with like like fifteen balls like all these toys like so many non-football items and this let them mill around and fight I get it. It's cute all that. But you know, I, put a lot of money Dallas puppy bowl thing and I wanna see some you know get up and go from these puppies I I guess I don't even you describing puppy. I guess I. Don't even really know to puppy boys. Okay, well for Chris and. Well maybe other listeners don't know I was Gonna I was GonNa draw hard line at Chris. The only person note the puppy with the public balls light but I can see that people not knowing the puppy bowl is will call counter programming by animal, planet on the Super Bowl Day and what they do effectively that we have a little football arena and for all European American football, not the football. And they just little just have like ten puppies walking around with ties and things. I think there's one football or like a couple of football toys and if they warned puppies happens to bring of football to like a corner they get the they'll put a point on. You'll put touch on the scoreboard they put some other animals into I think there's like an announcer booth where they have like a hamster like a parrot or something and they dislike zoom on them sometimes they have a room full of cats as well. Oh. Yeah. They did they incorporate cats they're just in the other rooms sitting there the cats the cats are the cats are like we're not cheerleaders. Cats are there's there's no reason whole thing. So number one how the first off legitimate training here we I'm so much money into football. Why can't we dump like get one of the you know dishonored football coach the kit gets kicked off their team, but it's still pretty good and haven't been charged with the puppy bowl teams. See you want it to be like a legitimate football game with puppies. You not. You could look you can teach a dog to toss a thing and you could definitely teach Dr Fetch a thing or catch a thing. Could a dog throw something? Think you'd have to basically like disk? Is it with their mouth? And my my dog will sometimes do that when she's playing with yourself not not not phrasing no one was thinking that Marcus. grabber toying like, throw it up in the air and the Jason Again, like playing with herself so you could definitely train a quarterback. And all the like you know, the wide receivers and the wide retrievers are very easy to train. Here. So I think you could honestly like. Not Hypothetical Crazy we're like regular world dog training you could set up like to actual dog teams. To compete with like a little bit of little bit of you know skin the game secondly expanded out expanded like first off dogs are too small football is about having big dudes bump into each other. We're GONNA get the big dogs at their puppies though are they still going to be puppies? You can get big PAPI's get the biggest God. Dang bulky poppies and throw them out on a full-size feel don't. Limit them to tiny little arena. Put them in a big S. you let the dogs run seemed accelerate him really get in there. And that's number two. That's a big field big dogs and train them to play football. It makes it thirty times more washable. Personally I find it very watchable on his own merits just being the I. Don I don't like the dogs I don't think the having big puppies would improve the viewership I think that appealing thing about puppies is that they're small. Guys just don't understand football. You got to understand football like I. Understand I. Don't understand puppies like I, understand puppies. What if you had T rex arms? Funny, it would be funny. How would we have to design like the modern workplace I'm sitting at my desk now t rex arms up trying to figure this out I mean just if you're ever on your side, he basically have t rex arms by ozzy by slightly improving my posture, I can reach my keyboard. I don't think are our mobility would be as limited as a T. Rex because we still. I mean I. Feel like I can still reach a lot of stuff and you're positive thing. My mouse just has it just has to buttons and I don't have to clause. Oh Hannity. Don't you got legit. It's not just like, Oh, I ha- I've t-rex arms because I put my arm my shirt like this is legit you have t rixon's. Okay. Temperature regulation will get a little trickier because I don't think. Well, it's warm blooded. I assumed now but maybe. It was warm blooded. It was not a lizard. Yeah. It can't be cold-blood would die. It's too big. The power their muscles needed was far too high for the analysts be cold plant that is so cool actually. To that's a real cool factor where just like any animal who's strong enough has to be warm blooded or else it will literally explode itself from the inside from the from its own energy generation. See you won't be able to reach your head. Probably get your marriage might be taught. My agree forehead I he been down. Yeah. Can't reach the top of your head. Yeah I. Guess You don't really need to reach the top of your head that often you can't put on Hats I. One thing. Important Things with rim yeah brimmed hats yeah. I don't think I. Don't think we're talking about here by love that art conclusion pit tenderly be your limited brimmed. Okay continuing with the unimportant bullshit you can't actually do anything with your hair. The Way I do my hair I think I could do it. Could you can you? Can you like you could get a stationary combs station thing just rally. I can reach my top of the front of my hair. The only part of my hair do anything with, and I could tell that actually the important thing besides hats is you won't be able to put on his shirt. Oh. Now you still need to get over your head right I put a shared on. Hold on be trickier when I was going to try it. On our non visual medium these are this is the sound ben putting his shirt. This is really complicated because I record with your en and I had to. It's Ok ben just don't let we won't say anything while you do this. Oh You here we go. Shirt is off. I'm scrunching it up to the Nicole. Nicole is over. Oh this is quick Nicole. Okay. I think the whole not bad harvest fraternity beginning the arms through. As far as tricky. Okay. Wait a minute. Wait a minute I've. Okay. I. Did. A snag. I don't think. Okay I have a problem because they don't have actually have teabags ours. I think it's possible. Yeah. Because you're SORTA like artificially shortening your arms yet in the front the problem to. Our shirts aren't built I. Guess May put it this way. I could one hundred percent put a tank top on what's he acts arms right now can you put your pants on? Hold on. Okay. This is easy. Hold on. God I. Hope I. Hope Shanteau. Comes in right now, it's going to happen. Okay. It's pretty easy for me, but I also have very flexible, hips. Much like the mighty rats. Hold on how do I wait? Now I got. Wait Okay, I have a correction to make. These weren't that's after all. It's really easy to your pants on. Above. Your knees in pretty hard to get them much higher than that. Because you can lock them ability. Oh. Yeah. We hold on home if I cross my arms. To Cross, your arms I mean if you have t rex because you're probably living yourself to, you'd like you don't have an elbow, but you would have an album you had. They would just be shorter that that's true. Yeah. There's also another inconsistency of doing human t rex arms in his that your arms wouldn't. Effectively, come out of your mid torso. Farther problem I have is that I have no way to pull hands up in the back Oh yeah. That is a problem but otherwise pants. Okay. I think I think you can pull pants on not racks arms that's what I decided. Okay. If you like maneuver the back because a share it, you can use gravity to your advantage. You can't the toughest thing with the shirt was just getting. My. Palmeira, you're going to my shirt now. Guys. I don't I. Don't think we're. Improving on pension put on. Iraq's armed man I'm glad we're just an audio medium. So I, think that we could think with that. I'm going to call it a lightning round. Why am I always the one who does these things you volunteer? Actively volunteering for them. All Right Mr T. Rex pants you ready Would you rather own a horse with wings like? Pegasus or a talking dog with human intelligence? ooh These really good options. There's I. Really Good options. All right. You know what I think this one's actually pretty easy for me. There's anyone have not a decision on this. Already I've already decided Oh God this is a discussion I mean. I. Have I have. I. Have an inclination. Without like at the same time with discussing I think yeah I think we should do that. Okay. All right. Here we go. The one that you would rather have. Yup. After one. So three, two, one, three, two, one okay. Yep Yep. Three to one time. What's ooh. Okay I don't want a talking dog that if a pet I don't WANNA talking dog that's human intelligence because I'm owning it and that's weird I. think it's a friend because then you like like it changes the relationship definitely don't have a pet relationship with friends, but he's a room to room mate actually that actually that is a point. So actually, Chris Ben, you make a good point here because that's my first inclination to because I think the life of pets while they enjoy them, it's an ignorance is bliss kind of thing where if you know it was secret life of pet style where they knew. What all the stuff that was going on your pets wouldn't like their lack of freedom so much and there'd be some very sad beaumont's where you're where it's like, Oh, I'm leaving for the weekend and you're in your pet like freaks F- out and they would vote vocalized that the okay. They have human intelligence the dog might be war but also I think your dog would be if you had your roommate with a talking dog, your dog would be equal if not definitely your superior because I find it really hard to imagine a world where I'm making more money than the talking dog that lives with me. I guess he does have that advantage that he's talking dog. Yeah I was GONNA say like physically year probably superior because you have hand and staff. Yeah but like. If you live in a place that has all like like the lever handled doors a dog and open those doors just not usually smart enough to like know how to do it consistently. Yeah. But it probably like it was smart enough to know how it works and it just couldn't do it than envious. No, but I suppose saying like with if you have a talking dog intelligence, you have an apartment the talking Dr. human intelligence can use things in it yet, but that's just your apartment like once you leave eggs a place that you own. There are going to be things that you can do that it can't and I feel like it's GonNa get jealous. I mean I mean I don't know if you'll get as I don't know how envious would get if you're a different species and he can do things that you can. Smell everything. Yeah I guess go run around the park. I. Mean technically around the park looking weirdly and then also just like you know have millions of dollars because how can a dog talking dawgs not have millions of dollars like that Miami and you can make the same argument for a Pegasus you could make millions of dollars by having a Pegasus could you though it'd be a little tougher? I mean you just make show with the Pegasus Don't even work like. Okay. Now let's put it this way. If you if you don't like all of you. Like you can't be like, okay. It's a new game of thrones because I have a pegasus. You get a TLC show about you. If you if you have a talking dog, you're going on every late night and morning talk show like literally every single one Pegasus Mike it on I. Think you don't Fight I. Think you'll get on the same amount I. Don't think so no, the thing is the promise. The dog is the full pack right? Dog Is, and it's not even you you're not involved anymore. Is doing this on their own because now they know how to read a Contra and they don't they know they don't need you. You can interview adopt because this isn't good for you. This is good for dog. Job You can't. Afford to pay. Talk, yeah is yes. Talking dog with human intelligence, but it's math isn't built for talking right this one's is like those. A whole answer Ben's Africa questionable was, but he covered that in one of the questions. Was this specifically can is says a talking dog so I was that part of. Intelligence thing. Oh No. No you can talk with human intelligence. If it's just human intelligence I'm less end to it but a talking dog with human intelligence I am into against I. Think it's good for the dog. The dog has a good situation, but it doesn't need you and he's probably like his not necessarily good for you know it's not necessarily I wouldn't be that selfish I think the I think that the talking dog would be such a cool life story to have even if he leaves you behind in his you know. But. So a literary like Emmy winning dust like you could be like, Hey, I ruled with that dog but here's here's a question for you Chris. Do you WanNa ride a Pegasus. Why wouldn't I I feel like that it'd be terrifying why you you've always been in favour of of flying. You said that you WANNA fly instead of run superfast so I would like to if I'm controlling it. Yes. I assume you have some sort of control over this the Pegasus. Your shoulders like a dude on the back of flying thing with no. A seatbelt I mean it's the same as just writing a horse so like you could train the horse and you'd have control. Here's one thing I'm just looking at Pegasus. Peg aside right now she's yeah. Pegasus and here's one thing that literally no one addresses is that based on where you put the wings on a Pegasus there is no place to put your legs as a person. This is true. There must be some pictures of people riding Pegasus and the Pegasus. Wings are always like in mid flap forward and the legs behind it and it's like, no, the wants it pushes downwards. It's going to push your fucking legs off and you're GONNA die. And here's a here's the other thing too I. I've ridden a horse you know an actual horse like one time it was not comfortable and I don't think aero-dynamics and extra wing muscles bright by my groin area are going to make the experience any better than it would be a writing regular horse. So you have this really cool Pegasus thing, but it was. So uncomfortable. I'm looking at a picture of head of Pegasus from the Disney movie Hercules and the wings are coming out of SORTA, the shoulder. So it's like more towards the front like at the base of the neck either look a whole lot of wing right behind. It also feel like every time flaps you're going to get like buffeted by jostled either backdraft out. It's like like clearly, if I could ride a Pegasus ones, I would ride a Pegasus. But yeah, this is also that yeah, having a Pegasus net improvement on my life, right? Yeah. I just think I'd rather have the talking dogs. That experience in the Pegasus experience. Exactly. I think it's I guess if the relationship is different, the wording says you have talking dawgs implies that you own it. I mean a talking dog needs a person associated with it to help it navigate through a human design world. I. Don't think so. I think. So why stiffed is intelligent as human? Yeah. There are there are most most like of human society is not designed for Docs, but it can figure it out I. think that if I was a dog I could figure out how to get a get by carrier dog use a cell phone. Yeah. They're Paul's work can hold a cell phone if it orders especially if it gets accustomed dog carrier phone like something that goes on its face with news its nose ahead headset. Yeah a dog headset. And series. So he's very much. He's GonNa be your dog is going to be the assholes on his Bluetooth device all the time, the blue tooth. And with that that does it for our episode today everybody we didn't make a decision. Oh, I mean we have it sounds like. Me Ben, our team dog it sounds like your team. Marcus which term initial I did. I've switched pretty quickly once I realized that the dog could just live his own life be awesome. But we've you know we up to a vote listener. If you think that you would like to have a talking dog, go to www dot patriots, dot com slash absurd hypotheticals hit become patron button give us one dollar and that'll be one vote for talking dog. If you think it should be the Pegasus that you get go to www dot patriots dot com slash absurd hypotheticals hit that become eighteen button and Thirty five dollars please that's GonNa be our voting system. Again votes. Dog is one dollar bills for Pegasus thirty. Five. Will tally them up at the end of next month. WHO WINS WHEN WE'VE GONE And once you've done that I feel free to join US next week where we're doing our very first throwback episode I'm excited. Explain what those? High.

Episode 101: How to Improve Bowling

"The Food for was what if we had nine lives blooded pits. UPS or if money through on trees if we did nappy. Back then. Some insert. Absurd I better go. Hello everybody and welcome to absurd hypotheticals, the show where we overthink dumb questions, so you don't have to I'm your host markets leaner and I'm joined here today by Chris, Ye and Ben Storms say hi guys. Hey, I'm Chris Ham. Ben Guys were on the other side. We are in triple fragging digits episode one on one. We did that last episode though. He ready made it to triple digits. Yeah, but we had other things to talk about. That was actually the now. Triple digits is the exciting thing until we hit quadruple digits, okay? Even two hundred like Oh we just did another hundred like it's the same accomplishment again. It's still pretty impressive. This is podcasting one one. You get to be excited about one on one I figured someone who's GonNa that joke eventually. Really because I just thought about did not expect it. I thought of it and then decided not to say it. At, least I'm surprised. Oh Oh my gosh. Yeah that a good we'll just keep that in the in the file for whenever we need it. Degree or Chris Going WHOA. Whoa I'm always a motive, so we're going to save it for Chris Whoa Okay Gosh. I never say Gosh. Well, it might be your new thing. That's my career is now. You're hundred and one to when I nine episode countries. We need something to put on. The T shirts Gosh. Gosh. Every time every time. We say a number that has no context like. That sounds exciting because the big number, but you have no idea how old the number is like Gosh. That'll be. That'll be our code for that analogy. Look, we're improving the podcast in the podcast. itself made so many improvements in the first hundred, and this is our one improvement in the second hundred on unheard podcasting technology. Right here it's called life editing and we're. We have a patent several back off. Hopefully! There's some actual edited during this this whole secrets right here so anyway, really they are. We'll get your patents ready. Because today we are going to be improving bowling because our question is. How would you improve bowling? I guess I'll start with. You guys laughing at me, yes. We are so the way I like to approach these improving sports questions that we do is to really like. Go Down, or what's fun about the sport in the first place and then just highlight that. So, I imagine if you ask someone who bowls for real as a hobby, or you know semi, professional or professional, the answer is going to be something about like developing the technical skill, puzzling her to get tricky spares. Stuff like so much nonsense like that. That's not where the fun of Bowling is. They've missed the point all of them. We really boil it down to its core. Bowling is about it just being fun to chuck a big hardball at a bunch of stuff and have it fall down near fall fast. Pin Go down. You know it's much. Look if you think about the real like. The way. It clicked for me was the difference between hitting a strike? Will you throw the ball really slow when the throw the ball really fast. Wake when you throw like a regular slow amateur speed, and you get a strike, it's exciting and look over and like someone wings down That's awesome. So my first instinct was to just replace the pins with a much more elaborate Django type tower. That was really fun to watch. But I don't think that's quite threat fun, either because you do want to try a little bit. You don't just be like a a video of watching Jenga tower fall down. So what I wanted I was interesting things to knock down. And it got me thinking about one of the real life. You know quote Unquote Sports that I've been really wanting to try. If it was anywhere close and I am talking about top golf. Have you guys heard of top golf? I have heard of top golf. There's actually a Taco F- location near where my like family in Florida lives. We almost gone to several times. I thought you're going to say your office. It ought where. Floors Kinda far away. My First Instance of hearing Topkov Utah me about top golf a minute ago and meeting, not knowing and not saying anything about it. So top golf is a kind of. It's not a sport, but new activity thing that you can do and basically what it is. It's effectively a driving range, so you go out there. You have golf balls. You hit him with golf clubs, but instead of hitting the ball into a field. There's all these like big targets set up like in the grass and the cool thing about it is that all the balls have little GPS chips in them see hit the ball out there and it lands on the target, and you know you hit the blue target near the middle, and it'll like you know the GPS tracks. It gets you that many points so really what you have is like A. Like, a Sh-, mortgage board of things to Gaul at all going to go for the far target, because it's more points, I'm GonNa go for that one and that one. This one that one and that's really cool and what's Nice about it too that it actually makes a little bit more like going out bowling, because instead of just going out to A. Out On lawn next lined up next to country. Bunch of people you actually do usually have like a semi private room where you have a little bit seating table. Sometimes there's food and drink service and see the place to hang out like you do with bowling. And then you got so, it's already working its way towards bowling so I think it's a neat idea, but since it's absurd, hypothetical I think there's any reason we can't just repurpose it and take it about four steps too far along the way. So the first thing, and this might be more personal choice, but the first thing to do is change the ball. If you guys have played a candle pin bowling or a similar bowling variation that uses the small bowling ball instead of the big full size. You know typical Americana Bowling Ball. You're out if you haven't tried the small one because it is so much more fun to throw that thing, it's really really hard fast. It definitely is like a sixteen pound ball, or even like a twelve pound ball I can pick it up and I can throw it, but like I can't. Get a I've never happy with him on a fight. Again I actually prefer the big ball, but I can see why. You'd like this small, ball. Because I'm small weak. D Do you know what the maximum weight? A Kennel pinball is by the way because. I don't know I two pounds seven ounces as opposed to the like minimum. What like ten on a regular bowling ball? It's just enough half. It's got heft, but it's not handy exactly. Feels waiting until this chuck it. Right and that's kind of where I'm starting is the image. Is You have your hangout area tables chairs? And then you have this big wide lane in front of you and you have your candle pin, and you have your candle pinball, and so this. Why willingly it's GONNA lead out into the field whatever you have set up. And where I think you start making it. Fun is right at the end of your Big Wide Lane. Ramp. Like a little ramp. And now you're start is almost like a ski ball. Thing where you chuck it. It's hard as you want bonus points. You want to be reward for trucking it harder of course, so you can set further target so now you have a reason. Throw hard instead of decreasing your accuracy. So throw the ball out hit. The ramp goes out into the field. So. What does the play area actually? So the two things I think that that for practical matters. Is One is about ball collection and to I thinking about Gutter Balls And when I figured I got about I won't get rid because got. Balls are not fun because. The way the the fund works. Is You know throw the ball you miss those in the gutter and everyone knows nothing else. You feel bad about an everyone knows. Nothing else has happened from that point. Forward was watching the ball go into the back of the of the alley, and there's no drama or anything to it. So, what I wanted to do my solution I came up with. Is You take the entire? Field Area And you basically turned to a big bowl and bowling. Get it Tom what. Now it's consoles. Both prompts the one baugh collection. All the balls eventually go down the middle and can be sucked up in a hole and you know get. Set back to the players and to you fuck it up and you miss you. You're going for target or some set up in this bowl and you miss. And now your balls gone, but The Bull Start. The ball can start curving Start looping around. Maybe hit something on the backswing. And maybe goes around once or twice before you know, and you get lucky somewhere on the lane before it runs out of juice and goes down into the bottom of the bowl so. It's like it's that moment of like your play with a kid that like really really slow in the ball's rolling down the lane and it's just like it's. It's just go and going going and who knows if it's going to make it all the way to the end. It's exciting to watch that it's fun. It's like many Gulf where there's a hill on the other side of the whole, you miss a whole, and then it comes back. Yeah, exactly. So again. It's just I think it's a great idea in to. Feel like you want some level of challenge. Want to be just nonsense the whole way around and feel like Judging the way your ball will travel around a curve is like the perfect mix of. It's intuitive, but also challenges. You never get it quite right, but you have an idea of what you WANNA do. So another thing I've seen in some top golf places, but I think we can repurpose because it's. It's whacking wild. Is that not everyone is necessarily on the ground floor level. They'll do like almost like a sports stadium with tears. See could be like on the second floor on the third floor. I think you should if you're going to be building this big contraption. One of the things that a bowling alley does have compared to. My thing is that it's much smaller footprint wise per lane. That might as. Any of those. Same and you're going to law space, and so you can't do I. Think it's just as fun to Chug a Kennel pinball off like a second story balcony as it was you know a first for as long as the, if not more fun, honestly, if not more fun and I said there's a couple couple times already, but this is where it clicked for me yet again. Because imagine you have kind of like this this one side of a couple of stories and you have these people checking out all these candle pin balls, and they're always kind of coming out all at once in my mind's eye that looks just like cannonballs from a pirate ship broadside. So now we've got a theme, so you build your whole thing like a pirate ship pirate ship themed brings it back to like the family. Fun Outing because that's really. Wants to be. It doesn't want to be a serious sport. People after overtime wants to be a family fun outing every part of your enter the coupon. Adding on just keeps reminding me of Mini Golf. It really does pirate famous mini golf. One on one right been Golfer so fun and successful, because Mini Golf is God Dang awesome, and I have no problem riding those coattails. Because now you're a pirate ship, but now you're big bowl. It's a whirlpool and now you have just this perfect setting to set up all sorts of props. You can set up pins. You can set up like little ships. You can set up obstacles. You can set up a crack in the middle you can do. Whatever the heck you want to like, just make this really fun exciting. Make things worth different points do this do that, you know, renovate your renovate your field, every season or something. There's a lot you can do and people aren't doing it already, so a pirate themed going to be part of the sport, or you're just saying it's going to be themed in general or does have to be pirate themed, so does not have to be higher. I think mine would be pirate themed because I think it fits perfectly. What did do a space battle theme? I was GONNA take. A black hole. It seems perfect well. You could do like a fantasy theme where it's like a castle shooting catapults. You can do just like a funhouse theme where you have lots of. Colors and it's ballpit carnival rides and roller coasters and whatnot like a pinball theme Yep. pinball theme is good. There's so many themes like this is. This is going to be a multimillion idea. Why get your patents ready? I assume you've been feeling as I've been talking. And I think the last icing on the cake I think is, it does take a bit of effort to get the count him ball rolling far enough that you could get into this field and make a difference like. You? Have you need the equivalent of the ramp for kids in the in the bowling alleys? So my first thought was just too well. If you're going to be part of the not put them in cans, shoot him out. Which is cool in concept? I think impracticality that works less. So might practical solution. Is You have your things? You put up some put some crows nests up above. At. What you do is now in the crow's nest. That's where you put the Rams the Clinton, the kids climb up to the top, and they'll have the regular size blonde balls, and they'll roll down a ramp that goes all the way from topic rose. Nets into into the bowl and start knocking stuff down, and that's what's GonNa be fun for the whole family, and my idea is way better than bowling. You guys should invest right now. It took me a while to realize what you're talking about. When he said the ramps for the kids, but now I now I know you're talking about. If you don't if you're not or not, everyone might know where they are, but they are, so you get for small children bowling alleys that don't have the strength to roll the ball down the lane. They have like a little slide, a little like two three foot slide that you can that you can set up in front of the lane. The kids strong enough to put the ball on top of it, and then the ball rolls down at and through the lane. and. That's what you get from me. Chris, what did you do? Can You beat me? I duNno we'll say. So, what I did was. I saying usually when I tackle these sports questions. My main goal is to Kinda like keep the essence of the original sport so I try to boil down. What I think is the essence of Boyne and I think. There are three things that has to have. It has to have a ball that rolling asked to have pins knocked down, and it has to have know market said that the gutters and fun, but I think that's part of the sport I think you have to include it, so the gutter is the third part so when looking at this. I actually started with something that Ben found when. When we're doing our, how would you improve golf episode he he looked at a gallop poll. That asked. What is your favorite sport to watch and Boeing was so there is a whole list of them in there is a legend at the bottom of said if there is a star, the news less than point. Five percent and Boeing didn't even have a star. Boyne just headed dash so. Dash. So we don't. It's pretty unpopulated watch. It's less than less than five percent. That's all we know, yeah. It is no longer in the realm of real numbers. Technically exist. We can't prove it right. So I wanted to try to improve the popularity of this so I I looked at the top sports on that list and the top five where football, basketball, baseball, soccer and hockey. Now with the exception of baseball, baseball's different, but the other four follow basically like the formula for sports, which is you have two sides, and they're just opposing each other, and then one teams trying to get the side. The other teams trying to get to the other side, says like. How can we adapt bowing to this formula to make him more popular, so the first thing I did was obviously just scaled the lane. Because if you have two teams on the lane, he just can't fit on the white, so you have to scale it up and I said that it's going to be basically like football field size. And the ideas that you'll have pins. At the very ends of both sides, basically like the end zones of field, and they'll be goalies blocking those pins. I guess. Technically they won't be goes no goal so. I Guess Penny. But I'm thinking with this big field. Ten pins isn't really enough. So I kind of wanted just like fill. The entire will be considered the end zone. I want to fill that entire thing with pins so I looked to honey pins that actually be a pins are in a normal boy. Pins are space twelve inches apart from each other and the end zone of a football field is one hundred sixty feet by thirty feet is a really tall vendors of heart that seen as twelve inches apart. Wow, I always like their way closer than that. According to the website I found. They do a close in that, but I don't know they're also a couple of inches in diameter, so it reduces the space beyond anyway, but yeah, if if you if you have that spacing in, you're trying to fit them into this dimension of the end zone. Then it comes out to four thousand, nine, hundred ninety one pins on each side of the field. I just rounded that up to five thousand will make little bigger and the ideas. Each of these pins will basically be like life. Fear Team, so a pinkas knocked down and you leave you lose a life and. if all your pins get knocked down, then you lose the game. So you're. You're trying to defend your pins now to make this more interesting. We kind of want that power struggle. Like across the field so like if one team pushes towards one side and you're like. Oh, it's there's progress that way as more interesting, so I wanted to try to emulate that so I looked at the the two sides. I looked at I liked. I looked offense. And how often would work? So I don't think it's that easy to like run with the boing ball, so I I went more with like an ultimate frisbee rules type of thing so like you can't run the ball. You can pivot and stuff, but you have to pass or shoot when you have the ball and pass you just roll it across the floor. The field will still be like a wooden thing, even though as compared to like a football field still wouldn't imagining now. How Ski? And I love and hate it. We'll get to sort of also of get to that. Yes, so that's how like offense will work. Defense will be a little different, so I think it's. It'll be a little to easy to intercept the ball because unlike. Frisbee like you can throw a Frisbee pretty fast with in like. get around people and stuff and then the Frisbee is in the air and they can't like. It's harder to block it. A ball is different 'cause it's on the ground, you can just like step in front of it or pick it up. Some, instituting a rule that you can't. Intercept the ball and the goal. The goal of the the team that's on defense is to knock the bond to the gutters, so that's where the gutters come in. If the ball goes into the gutters, then it goes to the far end of their side, and then they get the ball, and then they become offense. How do they not get out of the way? Yes, so they're not allowed to touch the boss having knocked out of the way, so anyone that has bold ever has probably seen. The thing where someone accidentally throws the ball too early. It goes down and the hits so little pin sweeper thing. And into the got her. K.. So, I'm going to give all the other defensive players there on personal pin sweeper thing. That'll be the technical term I guess pins, weeper thing and I think it's flimsy enough where it's. Difficult to kind of deflect it, but it's not. It's sturdy enough to actually deflect it, so that's if they touched the ball themselves than it to penalty, but if they use their sweeper thing then to get, and they deflected into the. I like the idea that it might be too flimsy end. There's a risk of you going to stop. Breaks through. It's nuts. Yeah, well. It went hit you in the nuts. The crush to get it down right like. I imagine them holding the frame of it like the the bottom part of it. Are you saying the falls can hit them in the nuts? Yeah Vic breaks through their barrier. What's? What's their pose? Exactly are they like? Why ball is role, I met I met. Them crouched like if you're if you're. Crowds How are your nuts at risk? Like how? How are you crouching I? Don't you'd have to be lying on the ground with your legs? Open for it. Hit your nuts. Yeah, exactly you just run, and your legs are apart. You can't see it on doing. I could totally get hit in the nuts. It's not like baseball where you're fielding ground Paul is exactly what it's like. A bowling ball isn't gonNA. Bounce up like that. Well the Talgo. House night hey. But like. If, your knees are on the. Man Okay. If your knees are on the ground, there's not. The height difference doesn't. There's too much height there I'd. What. One knee. Trying to trying to try things out except my jeans are slightly to tight and I'm trying to maintain distance the microphone, and this is the first episode I bet a Standing Desk and I'm getting punished for it. Have to believe me. Okay share. There's a risk that the you're not so go ahead. Find whatever. so have defense works the other sweepers. Now Ben mentioned the skegness I. Don't think there's going to be weakness because. Another part another essence of Boeing that kind of left out before but I do think it is a legit essence of Boeing. is the point shoes so you have to be wearing the boyne shoes? All the players are gonNA be wearing bowling shoes, and if you know if you weren't Boeing cheese before you know that they're slippery, because their souls are made a leather. Flying around all the way all all over the place. And one thing that I didn't know before researching this was at Boeing. Lanes Are Actually oiled to protect the surface, and to just make the ball roll smoother, so you're GonNa have your Boeing choose slippery, and the lane is also to field also. GonNa be old. So I, don't think there's going to be speaking going on. Las Live it's GonNa be fun. There's GonNa be lots fighting. The person was sweeper down and just hit the ball and they just start sliding away. Unaffected. And what what's fun about? This is that I don't think we have to make the gutters only for the ball. People are gonNA be sliding around. The is now my initial ideas. This was for it to be like the gutters to be like a slide basically and that you'd side down to the other side of the field I. Don't know exactly how that would work because you'd have to be inclined. Actually think you'd work, but the gutters could just be like a conveyor belt or something, and if you slide into it, he carried to the end of the field in the. You have to run all the way back. Sarah's for penalties. If you do a penalty, if you like touch the ball accidentally with your body, then you have to to the gutter, and then you get carried to the end of the field. So that's that I think that makes gutters fun. That would make a lot more fun than typical gutters. Primarily people on the gutters are much more fun. Yeah so that's that's basically how sport work it will be to posing sides with the gutters, and the apparently the risk of you're not getting hit by the ball. On by it. Yeah I. Don't buy it still Ben Markets insists so we'll let him have that. Ben. What did you do? So I, I also considered the popularity of bowling. Did Ironically. Ironically used the way that I did the last time we did this I use a different method is at her popularity this time which was I searched for bowling on Youtube. And and the first the first videos that came out one hundred thousand, or so, that was like the most popular to put up first from there I found like the professional. Association Youtube Channel which had one hundred, seventy, seven thousand subscribers, and they got like five twenty five thousand views on most of their videos. Like sort of you know the average videos. which is is okay, but. Definitely. We could do so improving here and I think that's sort of that's. My main goal here is to make Boeing a more watchable spectator, sport, right, and specifically in today's Day and age to make it much more. Internet friendly because clearly, that's the way that that popularity is really measure. Now is how you know. Popper things are on the Internet. So popular on the Internet and there's really properly internet than animals so for comparison. To the Youtube channel the Dodo now you probably know the. Dodo because you've seen their videos popping facebook the like eight thousand times at this point. They're all animal videos. They're very frequently very heartwarming, because it's like someone who rescued a shelter dog who like when look at people in the eye and they fed them pizza for three days another best friend or something. I said as a joke, but actually I'm fresh. On My facebook feed was actually like someone who rescue dog and Fatima Hamburger the first night or something so much of a joke. That's how they get you they. They tell the stories that already exists. Yeah, well Parentis, so but the Dodo as opposed to the hundred seventy seven thousand subscribers of the professional point, sociation has six point five million subscribers. And most popular video, which is dog yoga pup really happy to be in his mom's yoga workout. which is a thirty second long video? That's exactly what it sounds like a Dalmatian. That's all up in this owners grill while she does yoga. Has Just under a hundred and twenty two million views when I checked today? Wow, so, what did you retire on I? Did Yoga this one time? And, for thirty seconds by dog, bothering me, and then I never worked again so clearly. We've learned here. Is that the first rule? The Internet is that adding animals mix people wanNA. Watch it more note note for the PODCAST I. I do I animal our podcast this time I do my part. Guys I know what you're doing. People like sports. I'm hitting. Our basis guys. That was a different episode. Hey, anyway, but I don't figure out. How many places can we shoehorn animals into bowling, so I stop I. WE'RE GONNA do. What about those stupid, terrible little hand-driers, hands avoid is right. Here are the ones that don't actually do anything you still use every once in a while. Just feel cool I like using it because it's it feels cool. Exactly right. It's useless. It's what you do when you're talking. Trash talk, be like Oh. Yeah! I'M GONNA strike now that I've tried my hands exactly yeah. So how do we? How do we generate? When like that right I thought was a bird, just like how flap between or something for some reason I couldn't find any numbers on like the wind force generated by a bird flapping wings. I like doing the wrong things I. Just kept getting. You know particles explain how birds fly, which involved when which didn't really meet my needs so down other paths, and eventually decided on what about dolphins, so it turns out? Dolphins can actually acts hail air and one hundred miles an hour. Okay, we can do that, too. Well, not not that fast wait hold on. There's called sneezing. Okay fine. Right, did we? I mean Gosh. Funny. It's funny. You say that because. Also. I. I saw that and I was like well. That's really big number. There's GonNa. Be like some crazy number. That was really insane. How fast dyson Air Blade handwrite or is how fast you guessed the air from a dyson handwriting, his those are the ones that like had the lowest like sprays I like a like a sheet of air. Okay, without the context of what we're talking about right now I would guess eighty five miles an hour. That's kind of what I had in mind to actually when I I was like thinking about this whole thing turns out four hundred and twenty miles per hour. That's usually response. It's easier responsible, but I've used those thousand times, and I still have my hands so. Several thousand, probably an exaggeration, but a lot of times and I still hands so clearly it's fine. It does seem like that is pretty fast for a hand hairdryer. The ones. For like bathrooms, generally these age like two hundred miles per hour, which is still clearly faster than a dolphin to be fair as we discussed the blow dryers on a Boeing Lane are useless, so this is probably an improvement going to say it still works. You can find numbers the actual Boeing. One I actually had a note. That literature says couldn't find any numbers for the actual boiling hand-driers. I really tried. Do you think do you think? Do you think the the air from a? blowhole would be at all moist. So you know what ignore that question bad question. PRETENDED WE'RE GONNA. Pretend it's nine. Forever to! Dry them out. I don't know we'll figure it out. We'll give you got dolphin burgers on your hands. You just GonNa to stop using the? Blow Dryer like you don't use the useless bowling. Anyway used Dolphin and then use the Boeing one book off your hands. We gotTA system. So we have we are. Dr Set what about reciting the pens? And basically retain the pants, basically like one of those you know like the block blockbuster right put him blocks into slot and stuff. You know who loves doing puzzle like that octopuses. Apparently talked on the show that enough. They don't have enough technical so. Wait what? They don't have enough tentacles. It's ten pins Yup. They can do it in two batches. Let me fine inefficient. Kills more. Most animals! Yes. It's about twice as efficient. In the majority of. The idea that we're like we were placed. This robot designed to put back on. Optimism had less efficiency. Somehow how that happened I was just talking about other legit talk with Sarah. About how I would say if I had the opportunity in the means I would seriously consider giving up all my other hobbies destroys an octopus. I mean they really cool and I've learned so one when I was looking this up like you know most. They just looked at videos of octopus. WHO's doing puzzles? Apparently, they actually like get unhappy if they don't get things like that to do with our minds like they always get bored and start like lacking out so apparently it is. All enjoy doing so. It's you know I feel better out seeing them in. The Pendulum Bowling Alley. Since, they'll probably actually enjoy it. Then, they'll lash out if you don't get any business Yeah, so there's you know you got. You got some problem there, but. Just everyone's I'm going to come and play with the dolphins and octopuses and do all that you ought to worry about that. It is octopus OCTA pirate radio. I think I think now. Is it officially octopuses? Octopus. There's some debate, but is officially octopuses. I did a OCTOPUSSY board game brought to a convention where I met hundreds of people, and that was probably my most had conversation 'cause I had octopus facts on my as part of my display, and I use the phrase octopuses and people like. Is it octopus like no actually? I had a little more factoid there. I forget the. There's like some in somewhere, but. It's octopus is the is the correct one. If you're if you're arguing about being semantic, which if you're talking about with paper, it's already are. If, you enjoy interacting. The human beings continue doing that. Let them say what they want. But by the way just quickly when you started telling the story I was so convincing say this is the game to conventions and I met hundreds of octopus researchers. All. Octopus not active. I pose the same question to every single one. Is it octopus and they said yes? Man We're so alright. I guess since we're already so attached to. My next point was actually also a tangent I started looking into like animals, solving puzzles and using tools in general IRA pretty much decided on octopuses. Because you know, the tentacles would let them the faster lot of things but. The. Ten pins. It's perfect because right math, but I did learn that apparently. It's been scientifically shown that crows actually enjoy using tools. There is a study that was done. Where basically matter figure out how I? The idea wasn't figure out. If they enjoy into the entire point of the study, which once again, scientists buck wild and I love it, but the way they like to determine this basically had these crows, and they will put them in a room with a box with food on either the left or the right side, and fills on the left side. They would have like a little small food on the rights I would have a bunch, and eventually the crows learned when you know, it'll help side high little food on the right I had a bunch, and they would go faster. The Bach North on the right side of the room because they knew that there will be more food there. And they started doing was also toe opened the box that either had opened with her beak, or they would get them like a stick or something open with. Started doing point box in the middle of the rooms didn't know if it would have a lot in little food, and they would basically have them open the box without a tool or with a tool. And then when they brought him in to the room with a box in the middle measure. How long it took them to go up to the box to see how excited they were. which was the most hilarious methodology I've ever heard? I actually got like scientifically significant like results using it. Took them. It was like twelve seconds to get to the box when they adjust, use a tool and twenty three seconds. If they hadn't used a tool or something, I just WanNa. See the I, just we see the access labeled crow excitement, right? It's very good. It's science remains the things that we'll get paid to investigate. Remain incredible to me. Even you know, however long into in this podcast and looking at random mass research all the time you know it's, it's pretty incredible. Anyway point being apparently a lot of animals actually just do enjoy solving puzzles news in tool, which is Kinda cool I like that Nice. I learned. Anyway back to Bowen because they've been away from that for like five minutes now, so we have our blow dryer. We have our pen resetting and I realized that you're running out of things involved in bowling. There's not that much that goes into bowl I considered like having something returned the ball, but It was just going to be like something throwing the ball back and it just wasn't really it was like yeah. Guerrilla throws the ball back. You can do that. That's fine, whatever, but it's not really you now have like a monkey. Carry it back then you interact with a monkey. Yeah, like there's there's like it's still kind of you know there's there's limits. Their elven picks up his trunk and throws it to you. Yeah, I mean, but it's still yet like obviously, it's not bad. Another Person Bulls it back to you. Point being we have to go bigger, which is where I started looking into actually replacing the ball on animal. So the reason I actually went down the path to begin with. Is that original? You're supposed to talk about Turtle Lemons Episode I. WanNa, Talk About Journalism. But then I decided that sliding turtles at Boeing probably not very good. Because, they're not going to get it fast enough on their own because Turrell's notoriously slow. From. The line, they don't go. They just like you know. That's the problem with this land. Point being, you're gonNA. Take a very long time. Be Ineffective or feel cruel, so I want an animal, though it actually propelled himself and the ball, but still be relatively Boeing all like. I somehow armadillos. Nine Mary set. Had that realization right I did. It's Kinda, Baresi and actually probably does anyway also still cruel to throw not revilla. Yeah I, mean I. Don't like running rolling into balls and anything aside from cartoons, so it's probably still cruel. Point being why did instead was penguins? Because Penguins? They don't move very fast walking because. Bottle around to move quickly where they'll do. They'll call tobogganing. Throw themselves onto their bellies and slide. Apparently not only is it a faster way to move down hills and stuff? They also just really like doing it. It's once again. They just like. Do it for Funsies, apparently, which is adorable. So I figure now you have. It's also very conveniently now. Very Aquarium theme you have dolphins, octopuses, penguins. That's all the animals I've mentioned, but they're all aquatic and you kind of have this. This life aquarium bowling alley situation where you have penguins who are actually the balls who I don't know if you slyke then, what are you doing, so I couldn't decide the Penguins Ryan Toboggan themselves or you like. Hold them by the belly, and like swing them out onto the lane. They hold onto rope. Spin him around yourself. You let go. It does seem very fun. It seems also not great, but you can figure it out point being penguins like sliding down for this, and I think we can go onto blown themselves fine. Okay, here's here's. Here's the penguins. There is a slot at the top of the thing is a slice. They get some speed and the way you. You'll throw the penguin. Is You get a little fish? And you throw it on the slide at the place where you want penguin to go, go for it so that actually in. The fish and boom. That actually leads into my other idea. That was not quad theme so I decided to go with this instead. which was your I? Guess? Ball is tennis ball and your actual ball. Has the pens a golden retriever? Throw the tennis ball towards the pens and Bob the golden retriever knocks delegate and the tennis ball is how many knockdown. You're probably GONNA. Get a lot of strikes. Awful hilarious. Very good. But I just had to go with the aquatic once. I realized the possibility for it, but golden retriever. Boeing is very good. Yeah, there's definitely no upper limit on how many times golden retriever dope late run into the same. Going to happen so many times yeah. I think the one the biggest problem with golden retriever boys I think you'll ever knock. Get a strike right like you don't have to worry about getting the ball back. Though that's true, you take that whole thing out of the equation very good. That's mostly what I have honestly I think. Really. The main takeaway here is that things are better with animals I guess not for pricing thing. We all know that. Do you think? Do you think the octopus is slowly grow to hate the Penguins Oh undoubtedly? Octopus just having a good time. I sort of the pins into the right spot is packed dopey. Boom. That the octopus seat officials like a fish, and then the penguins slams through the pens and the fish gone. That's the gutter ball is only optical fish. That's my plan. Throw fish. Tank I think Ben may have done the best sport. was the dog Boeing just dog? Boeing no, no no I think I think the whole aquatic theme is that that's Nice. I I like the dog blowing the I I. Give you options. I think dog walking is actually a good one to do in your backyard over the summer. Like a good a real good thing. It is actually just, and you have a dog and like kids. Boeing's do dog boy. It's got to be great. I wasn't gonNA love it. Okay Ben. This is this. Would you rather is a food? Question directed towards you. Would you rather? Eat only using your fingers or only using chopsticks. So I'm decent chopsticks. Are Not great but I'm. I'm good enough. See Okay so here's the problem. Is that I feel like there's a lot of foods just can't really eat either way. He accident. Both of them. Yeah that both of them can't do, but then both of them limit different groups of food that you can't eat, so I meet some foods with your hands. They can't with chopsticks. The other way round anything that's not already bite size is a lot harder, not necessarily impossible to chopsticks I mean you can break it up into smaller pieces. Yeah I was thinking of like Syria would be really annoying. Not Not like Cheerios, just run them up. Yeah, you'd have to. you mean like Yup stickier thing through there. You go is a chopstick small. Enough Chopsticks are Catalina. Yeah! I mean upper this way if I think the hand opening up to more food, because even soups like. If you're the person who's eating with their hands, you can scoop soup. You can get a good Gordon your hands together limits. You can't like anything too hot. Yeah, yeah, you have to wait for cool little dip, but you did not get any with chopsticks. Yeah I underst- imagining how sad we have like a bowl of chicken noodle soup, just e, all of like the carrot chunks and noodles out and just have like a bowl of chicken broth in front of you can't do anything with. Let's brutal. Brutal so what it comes down to is your weird either way like again like socially. You're weird. Only either the person who eats only chopsticks only Easter hats in terms of etiquette. Chopsticks are way more polite. Yeah, eating with chopsticks puts. You is at least respectable. Yeah, it's weird. It's like Oh, you only with chopsticks, because you know whatever reason, but that's just what do. Counterpoint I think there are more foods you can eat with your hands. They can get away with then foods. You can eat with shops. It can have not look weird so very careful. You choose where you go out to eat. You can appear normal as long as you always order like sandwiches and Burritos and burgers and stuff like that. Yeah, there are a lot of hand foods whereas really for objects. Just you know Asian food. And like specifically really like just Japanese right. I can't really use chopped with Thai. On Yeah Yeah but I think like it comes out scenarios we avoid. Where do you WANNA be? Like Hey, I can't eat this chopsticks versus situations where I can't eat this I can't respectively because I have to eat it with my hands. funnily Sushi is actually works for both eating Sushi. Is I mean culturally street through with your fingers. I think in the states. If you go to like a fancy sushi place, you're more, it's more. You're more expecting the chopsticks in your hands, but you could make a cultural argument. They're kind of on tangent here for no reason. We do here I. Mean I've seen plenty of people each with their hands, so let's say you go to Nice Steakhouse. Just take house was tricky so stakeout, so you'll steakhouse. Someone has to cut up like someone cuts it up for you set allowed. I think yes, you have to ask you know yet awkwardly. Have someone to do it. Okay? No, and then someone has you back a plate of cuts of steak, and either either chopsticks, or you just go hand with your hands so even if if you're eating with your hands, you could potentially not asked him to cut up and just pick it up invited. Is that better? What's what's more awkward? Being the guy who asked the server to cut up your state for you or being the guy who's gifts like a nice fillet mignon? Says thank you picks up and takes a big honk and out of. It. With your hands. Even if you do ask them to cut it up for you. As a man who has literally done exactly that. Are. We had we had eighteen of us, or whatever in Airbnb, and we cook steaks, and they were awesome, but we did. We actually didn't have enough silverware to go around for everybody. and rather than like waiting for someone to. Finish their silverware. Go in clean it and bring it back. I got steak handed to me I'm just like F it. Picked it up full stake at just like when. I was. Very drunk at the time, and it felt very like prime on Manley to do that, so that was a positive experience for me I don't think that would transfer to. Any, other sober day, right? But that that scenario would be impossible with chopsticks. True the pickup steak with chopsticks and can pick it up, but you can't really bite it in like hold onto the state with chopsticks. What if? What if you jab both chopsticks into and through it and lifted that way? Like A skewer, yeah! I guess it depends on how tender the steak is, and how easily you can bite into it. If, you can't buy into your state. Get a new stake. You just say we've just saved you from your cell rain, but you could pull it off. You just go. Hey, you just jam this shops that all the way through the state like a long ways Skewers and you just go for like I do. This weird. It is weird. We're not. GonNa we're not going to night out one. All right so like it seems to be like the port's contention are soups. Lick, soups are no-go. Chopsticks can be done hands, not ideally with hand. That's kind of like a little grey. The steak dinner I don't be landed on which one's better? which would he'd rather do? I'm also thinking of like if you're sharing food, it's like pretty gross using your hands data. That's really true actually. Yeah, there's there's a lot to unpack here. See I was Gonna I was Gonna say hand because I think you're gonNA have to awkward explains to people eventually, and it's easier to put that off by going to lower commitment restaurants that have sandwiches, Burritos, or whatever for longer. I got I got. I got I would do what I would do with it. You picked I picked chopsticks because. You know what around like Oh yeah the smart way to eat. cheetos chopsticks Oh my God tears say that taking. Yeah usually hey, I tried that, and it worked great for me I kind just incorporated that into the rest of. And then you have your stupid reason, but it gets you out of the conversation, and people will just have to accept that that's what you do. Because cheetos I mean the logic behind eating with chopsticks works though for the scenario, because if you're eating with your hands, and you're always going to have to like your hands are always going to be dirty. After thus eating chopsticks, you can just like carrying a plastic bag or something. Put them in the plastic bag. It pains me. I think I might have to go chopsticks well, thank. You swayed me. Yeah I'm going chopsticks. Chopsticks? I'm also going chopsticks I. Don't WanNa be I'd rather be the weird overly sophisticated man, then the the Prime Abe everything with their hands, because I think it's just, it's hard to explain away. Even as we were just hard, explain waiting eating your hands, because was like no, you're gross and Well, we don't. We don't agree very often so there it is, it is the answers chopsticks go live your life by if you are forced into this by. I guess a point after he asks you like a high school math problem. Her Mystical Food Genie ooh! Except instead of. wishes. Role rather mystical food, which a weedy. witchy where he you have to pick which one you want.

I'm A Celeb: Week 2, Your Questions and Christopher Biggins

"Hello and welcome to help. Thanks sexton my boss says. I'm a celebrity. Get me out of here. Usually this is the podcast. Where jordan and i help you navigate input challenges of modern life win on normal times as you should know by. Now i'm with you every day with a special edition of our podcast. Keeping you up to date with what's going on in the jordan his life. He's currently on the ninety. The reality show having to go through all sorts of trials and extreme conditions. All in the name of light entertainment. I'm william hansen etiquette coach by day. I'm more delicious. Fruit cake jordan's more venomous grass snake snake's venomous book guy with it. Well what a couple of weeks. It has been viper votes. Clifftops policemen happy places public votes. Jeff then there were those hideous eating trials where all sorts of fatty gelatinous rubbish had to be digested. Yes well down to the davison ben who did picky tease each friday. Now indeed speaking of which scuttling up to the microphone like an overeager cockroach with a questionable moustache. Producer ben guys. I'd like to see that cockroach. Yes comedy cockroach. Sounds like a cockroach so maybe I'm imagining a credit. One of those. So horrible plastic massages. You get in christmas crackers or maybe you don't go because you probably get some sort of like car in your christmas crackers or something but not an faberge hundred masons deluxe range coming up later in. Today's episode. I'm going to be challenging to the actor and former king of the jungle the winner of serous seven of i'm a celebrity christopher biggins i think the moment he threw up on the cliffs he was my widow. He's been absolutely charming. I think he's just handled it brilliantly. As bad people love he laughs at excels and where people come to me for advice. If they're going into the jungle and my advice always be yourself and he is see on the script you've written. Icg age which i feel some some points acronyms become more than that was. You could just misled like you said out loud eddie foot. Gmo age. Which i was bored helps me. Fill the time wasting for jordan. Come out to the also and we should just say if you are listening to this podcast. Contemporaneously have only got five more episodes of celebrity. The final is on friday coming up. Which means ben potentially depending on now. The voting has happened and we're voting to to keep our favorites in the camp. If jordan makes it to the final gene divas. You got five more episodes of this. If jordan comes out before. I get an early night. It's win win win really. I'm i'm fairly relaxed about about everything. Well i had a good old lion yesterday. So i'm feeling refreshed and ready to go for the final five days and looking back. It's been two weeks now jordan on our television screens. He's been in a car. So i don i which is more of a challenge watching it for two weeks or being in the castle but yeah i guess it's time for a bit of reflection. How'd you think jordan has changed since he got into the castle because well it seems long ago now but when we first saw him on that cliff was he was in a very different place to where he is now literally. And metaphorically yes he. It was all downhill from there I or india naught it was actually uphill for jordan. Because he has he has really developed as a person. We love him obviously very much. But i think he has. I want to say he's matured. I thought about saying matured. But then i remembered jeff say pulling finger so maybe matured isn't the way isn't the word but i think he has sort of the way. He looks at obstacles or challenges in his life and what he has learned within in these first two weeks and he he may go no further. Who knows i think he will then when he has. You know a lesser challenge in life. Because i mean. I doubt very much. There are going to be many more opportunities in his life where he's locked in a box with snakes calling him although we have got to do in the spring. So we implant that yet. I think he will go well. I've done that actually. This is a because jordan said on the podcast before jordan sometimes when he's going through sort of difficult life career social decisions sometimes. I do the same with him. We'll we'll phone each other of talk it through jordan perhaps needs needs more talking through. Because he's he's a talker and his job. But i actually think probably. Although he'll i would hope he's still finds me for advice. I think actually he'll be a lot. More self assured and confident as he goes about every aspect of life. Yeah it is is a funny thing. Isn't it because. I think a lot of people and this is getting for the software now which is an we often. Don't get so serious on help us. that's my boss. But we have our moments. I'd say we'll we'll do a penis joke in a minute. Stay with us change. But i think a lot of people say. Oh they'll consider. Change is a bad thing of developing always change. But i think i completely disagree with that. As a as a as a thought process i think changing is what we can order to combat people and i think not only as jordan so of developed himself. I think just being in that environment he as this podcast proves for both of you for for everyone involved we get along with people that aren't always exact like us and i think jordan has once again been flung into a situation where he's with eleven other people probably most of whom are nothing like him on paper. They wouldn't normally go for pint with my our or i mean he'd be making. Tv victoria daba shit but actually big on a level with them and just having hopefully a nice time as well as being starving and being forced to or for awful trials He he'll have learned so much about himself. And i it does make me i often. I'm in the last few days of sort of talk about a preemptive criers when it's over which again is out. Sounds quite weird. But i'm thinking about the end and it's going to be emotional. Isn't it when when they saw sort of wraps up. I think that's the sleep deprivation joke. It'll it'll italy that for you. Yeah i i think he'll. It'll be very interesting if nothing else. It's a good chapter of the inevitable autobiography in kennel. Twenty years so is there. An autobiography called unbroken. Is that the name of oh. Is someone that aim of barack obama's new automobiles or or is that michelle obama's no she's becoming. Oh my god. Can you imagine becoming coming noth. I sweat well. I was gonna say broken jordan. Break them but maybe the Jones autobiography is going to be called. Happy place i mean come on oh yeah of course well in another world the second one might be broken when or happy place colon picky completely nonsense echo which makes sense now this time last week. What we did was chatted through a few of the questions. So i think there's an opportunity to onto some more. Some more of those. I put it out on inscribed the other day to go through chaos. I what do you think jordan. More say when he discovers. Ben has taken his place. Well jordan should we let them into a secret so when when we knew this was going to be happening a few weeks fort was announced when it was definitely confirmed he he was going. We you and me start as a plot what we were going to do. And we decided that we wouldn't tell jordan because we didn't concern him. He had enough on his plate. Worry about so we wouldn't. We wouldn't worry him once he's gone. We can do what we like basically but he did manage to emotionally blackmail us before he went to tell him what we were going to do. And so he he is aware but on. I ain't think he is aware off is and i say these words reluctantly. It's a sunday some unfailing. He wasn't aware of how good you would be in his shoes while compliment. I mean i'm. I struggled to skip back a bit. Because when it was are off to tell jordan. This offer news that i be switzerland. The microbes first time. Who was it down to. It was down to me one of those situations where there's this awkward thing that everyone knows needs to be said. There's a group you know they need to say something to someone in the room silent and you just know that everyone's looking at you wasting you'd say something and as you'll know if you listen to the podcast regularly. I don't say so difficult for me but no here we are. I mean i haven't taken his place. Let's make that very clear jordan. Very much be back on the mike fame monies back from the cost. So don't worry about that. it's been good fun. Hasn't it william. And i like to think that maybe jordan more laugh at least one in my jokes. Probably the bush one when he listens to these. Yes the the crew district james. We've had another question here from sarah. What has been jordan moment of the series so far. Well i think you may have different. Thoughts is is is the vine volt happy place chanting that he did not so much. Anything jordan is that that was his moment of the series so far because obviously those celebrities have no idea what is being broadcast mean. Look at the the show. Is that of ninety minutes. Maximum per night. I'm sure there's all sorts of comedy gold and things that have gone on that we haven't seen but the fact that he is he plays happy. Place has inspired in the news. The other day it's raised over twenty thousand pounds for Burnley f c t shirts that you can buy if you by the way. Jd was want to to buy them. There's a lincoln all bio on twitter or on instagram. Click on national. Tv you to the right page. The proceeds from it go to among others pedals hospice course. We interviewed bethann sammy a few days ago. I think when jordan comes out regardless of anything else that will be his proudest achievement. I think back to when we saw anson deck talking about that trial on instagram stories. Saying this is one of the best trials we have done. And i think we were both quite nervous about that because it was audio jordan but he got in volts and i can say stole the hearts of the nation. He has been on sky sports. He has had bernie players talking about. He's raised thousands and thousands of pounds of charity. Just because he was really scared and he got taken to a took himself to his happy place so when he discovers that he's going to i think as you as you've mentioned yourself i think before he is going to well up and i have cried himself in the most nice way as possible because what impact. He's had and i think that would be a highlight for most liberties that step foot in the car struggle. And he did it on the source. Second day or something like that. So yeah tough debate. So many other things come to mind. I mean scarf between the legs also but for the impact. It has to be happy place. Happy place to have more. I think third question just before we go to the break. Which celebrity in the car. So would you like as a guest on the podcast. When this all snow more from rob jordan guest yes a regular feature maybe once every month and we just yeah maybe on the bonus friday episodes he could take a come on. Yeah who would i like.

Our guest today is someone who is perhaps even more at home in a pair of high heels than our to jordan the actor former king of the jungle and renowned pantomime dame christopher biggins. Hello christopher we're doing very well thank you won't do you make all of our children. In the castle. I say the moment he threw up on the cliffs he was my widow iphone vulnerability of him. And i know what it's like that i initial thing i mean i was very lucky i was. I came in three days late. Into and i have to fly in. I didn't have to be jumped in. I didn't have to. I did not think. All i did was walk. It's act and i won't enjoy an is the alive challenge Which was very terrifying serapheim. Because i was behind a bush to go on. And i could hear this. American voice of a woman called janice dickinson to be the most hideous woman. I've ever been in my life and she She then proceeded to do that. She was charming but anyway she. We did the challenge and she didn't do one single thing. I did everything. And i want all the south side. This is interesting. Then i found out what a vile woman she was. So and of course we were down to the last two in the jungle and i was convinced she wanted. She was convicted. When it was announced that i'd shaved got up literally got up. Went to a car. Go to which the apple was very funny. You keep in touch on every day when you're in the jungle you're on the edge of y'all wooden stool oil log Anticipation the fact that antagonise say your victims but joan. Wait we out tonight. Joel is without doubt my winner from day. One i as i say for the throughout my widow not some. He'll be thrilled to hear that. He's been absolutely charming I i think he's just handled it brilliantly. He's bay people love. He loves it excels and where people come to me for advice. If they're going into the jungle and my advice always be yourself and he is. I of course i. I've never heard of it before this show. And i but i sincerely believe is being himself. He could not make that up. yeah he is. He is being as charming and lovely. Thanks for eleven years the listeners. Listen to this for three years. And i was at the whether you detected this with any of the other series christopher it sort of is a little bit in the hands of those registering interests to how much of your personality is. Put out there while editing is the key to this show and in fact you. You can't win or lose by the editing. I mean you look at someone like eight who i've met. Who's a charming young man and a very good set. But apparently he's just coming over his dallas ditch water. And i think he's not being given his chance. I mean i may be wrong. That she really is does ditch water and nobody wants to. He certainly not being given shops. And that was when he and At the east end the guy Chain ritchie shane. Richie had a moment about washing out. And they will wonderful look scary back since always that it was a knox ever gonna do the challenge. That hasn't other than that. And actually the chain has been such a positive of the tiny bit attention that has been in this series. But it hasn't it hasn't been very tense camp really sort of gone now. I think i think that's very unfortunate one of the things. I put it down to the council because i think the cost is too big to spread like finish. They will sleeping area. They've got a sitting area. They've got a washington. We never had any of that. I mean we did have a. We have to go down to the pool in wash so that that that was that. But you they're all over the place you there's not one place saint consequently no one's gone on top of each other and of course at the end of the day it's all very nice to everybody will take it all but it's not fun fun for the audience point of view they to see browns. They want to see you. Jillian mckee's saints and all that sorta thing go on. I mean it's hysterical. When that happens and you want someone to really hate if you possibly can. We're entering the the final week intention. Is this sort of the point where it all does as you get rid of a few personalities as well as this more tension could come. Yes i think. I think tension could stop build in a in a very big way. I mean it was evident with aj at the top business which has been that befall because shade obviously doesn't like to wash up and there's the state of those patents. He left stand disgusting. You put that his law maxi the queen which navy in it would not. You wouldn't put it in front of a trump and he didn't like being pulled up on entity there. He did not. I mean he's he's clever shane. He's not putting the business so he's very funny. I mean he's very funny deed. But i mean i think it's the council is being great but i hope they go back there. I mean if i was going to the jungle this year i would have been very disappointed to go into the castle. I must say because speech freezing in that. Yeah i think that's why they give them wolves because otherwise they don't get pneumonia. That's been great. Tv a distant for death. Now i you. When you were that in the jungle in australia you joined in your hammock by a rent when you were sleeping now as listeners will know i was petrified of rats. I had hypnotherapy before i watched this this series so i could just cope with watching jordan potentially do things with rents. How was rationed hammock. How did you we. You sched- well i tell you what 'cause we we Rich self. we had a chat. I to go breakfast. And we had to go to an underground room and we got down. We walked down into the underground room and the dole slammed behind us. And we were in that that was just too from six very tight hammocks and we looked around. That was a poll to in the cold and there was nothing else and out. Where we suddenly saw a rat arise we we screamed we jumped onto the the hammocks which was very precarious. And you'd full off immediately as we jumped onto them. We were aware they've letted two hundred. Rats oh my go into this area now. It was nighttime so they had a night camera office. Which was that was brilliant. Actually because we did manage to fall asleep at night but we decided if one got on top of us that would be we'd say So anyway time goes on. And i fall asleep and then i wake up and i'm sure that somebody instead i in the dark. I'm convinced it's my water bottle fact. It's iraq which. I really got my hands on. And the ranch's won't be around my crotch And then what i do. I cover a sheet with the rats of the rack now covered and and i lay back again. I sort of go back to sleep. And then the rat comes out from underneath the cover and a night touch it and ice cream and i threw it against the wool where we can confined of the cell. And that's where history was made is one of the funniest moments i think they've ever had and ice cream. Oh my god gated off me. Get off me and it was. It was perfect. Mean wasn't passing inside but it was a you okay with rents now has exposure therapy. You'll you'll find with the now. When i did one the jungle that year the following year i went back to documentary for it about the making of the series. And i met man who deals with all the animals all the critters and he has his own area of the of set the six months before had he breeds everything and And i think the cleverness of the including the rats is the fact that all clean that not. The cockroaches are dirty i mean. Can you imagine if something happened to one of the celebrities and we laugh about people dying have nothing is going to kill you in as the fault of which will kill you off all that. That's yeah okay. Well interesting nine nine they. They breed all that cockroaches and maggots and rents and very nice young man. You've just that nice to have a hobby. Did you also going back into the sleeping bear whether you're in a hammock. All it was part of a task or somewhere else did you mind being filmed sleeping. Because i think it's a bit voyeuristic for friday to be to be filming people sleeping. It's bit weird. Isn't it very interesting to say that the first night Read to see in the oakland underneath the sky underneath the stars. I did think to myself about what's going to crawl over me during the night and i did fall asleep and fat. I set the best. I've ever snapped by life every single night so much say that i think they might have been putting bro bite in the water because we had no. I mean there was thought one sexual fault. And i checked with olbermann. We never know caught with a you do a direction in the morning. It's all very solar say anal. But i didn't mean it was the lack of that exactly all about fold and but we didn't have any and it was it was fascinating. I remember one voting waking up with a stops because there was a sound guy literally two inches away from my face hooting you. Backfield's and my mic. That frightened me. Because i wasn't expecting but it was very funny. And of course. It's is one of the cleverest televisions because nobody backstage at new cameraman.

He was voted one of the top five hundred most successful people in germany and he just recently launched his latest project. Business and lifestyle legends podcast. I actually had the honor to be on that. Podcast recently. And i love the conversation that i had with ben but ben is here today to help you build and scale a digital marketing agency using only remote workers. This is his specialty. He knows how to find great talent and get them to go to work to build an amazing service. A marketing agency is one of the best ways to build wealth. Why because a lot of people don't understand it's easy to scale of course it's hard to scale if you're doing the work but the point here is that you don't do all the work you hire other people. Great talent designers developers hardworking people that you can get them to do certain tasks work on the projects that you get hired to do an reap the benefits now. Ben's going to break down. Show you who to look for the mistakes people make but i'll be back at the end of the episode to tie things up and share my takeaways but for now take it away. Ben guys welcome is bench neither. I'm an entrepreneur from germany. And i own several businesses and one of the business i do is having an online marketing agency. So that's what we're going to talk about today. My topic is how to build and scale a digital marketing agency. Only with the remote workers. I've been working with remote workers for around eight years and i'm the owner of chop mafia dot com remote work platform. So you can go in hire remote work beer and that came from my digital marketing agency because our online marketing guy. So i have my own ecommerce store and out of that ecommerce store people were asking me. Hey ben how are you doing this. Can you help me with that. And all that kind of stuff and out of this. I created or found my digital marketing agency so our facebook ads did more than two million dollars for clients in zales with facebook ads but the problem was by selling companies. These facebook ads. They do not only need the facebook ads. they also do need landing pages. They need google ads. they need. We deals for youtube. They need graphics for youtube or graphics for ats graphics for the website. All that kind of stuff. So i was realizing. Hey if you're selling facebook ads. It's a good business. But companies need more. They need a full service solution and they want to have a full service solution because they do not want to have usa facebook guy and another one for google ads and another one to grade sales funnels. They want to have one agency one person to talk about their marketing stuff and outsourced that so by realizing that was thinking about. Hey how can. I build an agency like that. Because i'm only a one man show in the half other businesses to manage. And i'm quite good at facebook ads but i have no idea about google ads or some other stuff like billing websites or developing some stuff stuff like that so i need people for this. Hiring people from my country from germany is quite expensive so if you would hire a designer for example that custody around three thousand dollars a month so basically. It's an euros but yeah three thousand dollars a month. That's quite the same so this was too expensive for me okay. That was just not possible. So i needed to have another solution and then i came on the idea. The possibility to hire people from the overseas from the philippines pakistan india countries. Like that. why. Because these people were a lot of more cheaper than the german guys. So i was starting with that was trying that and some positive experiences some negative experiences but in general it was good in general it was working so i need to find myself a way to find people who are fitting into my company and were having a very high quality and this was the key to build and scale might digital marketing agency. Because as i mentioned i wouldn't have been able to hire three four five german guys. That would be just too expensive. But i was able to hire some people from the overseas so i started with hiring a designer and i would recommend you guys this. Start with hiring a designer. Why because definitely there's no company in two thousand and twenty one who do not need a designer in their company because you have so much posibilities to spread content out there and that's why you definitely need to have a designer but the other advantages that designer does not need to have any log in credentials or access to any sensitive data or something like this you can just give them a few pictures and title or anything like that and tell him hey. Police creamier facebook ads. Spanner out of that. And in addition to that you see the result immediately with a developer. If you're another developer guy you have no idea if this wella per is good if this is fast or anything like that but the with a designer you see it easily you see easily on. The result of this design is good or not that he take around one day for this or one hour as fast or not so. It's very very easy to start with with a designer as a remote worker indefinitely you need to have one in your company. I just proudly recommend that so our starting also they designer and this man helps me to improve my facebook ads because we have awesome designs. But before i did all designs and all the banners and all that stuff by myself. And i'm definitely guys not a designed so you can imagine how tremendously the quality was improving by that guy so realizing hey this was working with the design guy. I get one step ahead. I hired someone for google ads. I hired someone for wordpress websites and stuff like that. So i was not only able to provide high quality to my clients with that remote working guys. Some accompany hours able to widen my portfolio. So i wasn't the for the branding out there. I was still the facebook. At sky in the facebook ads marketing like a guru and sold my book an amazon bestseller and stuff like that but then the back end i was able to sell them not only facebook ads but google ads and landing paycheck and a new website and email marketing. And all that stuff as well. Because i have a team right now and this is very easy scalable because if you're found a way and we come to data and a few seconds if you have found a way how to hire good people and not being scammed by people and really knowing that this people half good and high quality output you could easily repeat that hiring process and scale your business with that. As i mentioned. I've created more than ten million dollars ten million years in sales for my clients. This was only possible with having team. So how did you do that. You got on dot com on my platform if you would like to check this out. Fourteen days for free and create a shop post. We have only. Id verified user skies this very very important also. Go hiring on another platform. Feel free to do that but definitely do only hire people who are ide- very fight at chapel fight this required why because in my experiences i got scammed one time by a developer and he crashed all my websites he had to and this is very sensitive guy so and i had no idea in general who this person really wall so do only hire ide- verified users this is highly recommended from the only hire ide- verified use those. That's why this is required chef. Because i'd built that platform the other people's are not getting scant anymore. So if you placing chop post make sure you really tell the guys what you want to half. What is this position about. Do not look for one. Fits all solution if you're looking for a design guy who is creating web. Design's exactly look for such a person. Do not hire someone who is also able to create t shirt designs and this also able to create a javascript code or as also able to do not do that. Do not do not look for one fits. All solution is not going to work so. Make sure that you're telling the guys what you're looking for. Then you're going to review all this applications and then you interview guys so the people and again make sure that this people fits your needs to not hire someone if this guy is not fitting your needs so if you half hired someone you need to make sure that this guy will be awesome in this field. He's related to soe also give him courses give him time to onboard in your company. Do not blast him with work from day one. He needs to recognize to know about your philosophy. He needs to know about. What do you want to have to work with him and this is. This is very very important. Be clear in your instructions. Do not tell him hand. The facebook ads banner. Please do that. Tell him what about tell him. What's the client about. what about the branding. What about the target audience. Tell him about the titles. You would choose stuff like that. This is very very important. Why because we are talking about scaling your digital marketing agency with remote workers and you need to the standard remote workers are not robots. You're not hiring a and he's working from nine to five and that's it you're hiring a human no matter if this guy is sitting in your company next to your desk or if he's sitting on the philippines or in your hiring a human and this is very important to understand so make sure that you're clear in your instructions and make sure that this guy is after maybe two or three month able to work by himself not needed your help anymore and if you have created that process that i was talking about in the last twelve minutes you're able to scale you're she'll marketing business only with remote workers i've around twenty people. I have none of them sitting in my office they are. Most of them are from the philippines and they are good working. You'll guys and try to tell them about your vision. Do not look for robots. Try them to tell them about your wish and take them in the same boat. You're sitting because the people are believing on your mission. They are willing to work hard. They are willing to to meet deadlines. Maybe if it's not possible but they are trying to but they need to believe in the same wish like you so this is very important so kind to sum this up. You need to make sure that you're clear. Communication do not search a one fits all solution. Give the people time to get in your company to realize what your needs what you clients needs about and then repeat that process and make sure that you're only hiring. Id verified users as i mentioned we unjustified we only have i d like us so but anyway this is very very important for not being scalped if you guys want to continue learning about how higher remote worker or how to scale a digital marketing agency or you want to hire a remote work now for example a designer go on.

You can just trial run start small and see if it works and then scale up a lot of people don't know this but the digital marketing firm is how i kinda got started before the hundred dollar nba. How i actually earn my money to be able to fund my dream business. Which is the hundred. Ambi- i actually built. Websites created logos. Did branding. I help bloggers and entrepreneurs online get started in the beginning. I was doing the work myself. But i wanted to scale so i started hiring out for the job. It's one of the best decisions i made. Because instead of me spending hours on end In doing revisions for things like logos and business cards hired one person. That would be able to do that for me. All the time intensive. I got somebody else do. There're remote worker there highly qualified. I did all the communication with the customer. So that It was clear and concise and took on the prophets. It was a really a good decision and it was a decision. I almost wasn't going to make. Because i was worried if i let go of that if i let go of control maybe the quality is not going to be as good. Here's a little secret. It's probably not going to be a hundred percent to your liking. Whoever you hire will ever work they do. You probably gonna feel like all you could have done a better job and it's probably true but really it's just a matter of taste and as long as they're getting close enough it's worth them doing the work rather than you because really if you have to scale if you wanna skill if you wanna make more money than the hours you have in the day then this is the choice you have to make and I'm glad i did. Because it allowed me to earn a little bit more money so that i can put that aside and work on one hundred on ba on my weekends on nights until i launched it and made it my full-time thing. Thanks so much for listening to the hundred show. I love your here. Hit subscribe right now. Whatever used to listen to podcasts with your on apple podcasts or stitcher radio or spotify were on them all smash that subscribe button now so you get our next episode immediately before we go on. I'll leave you with this when you're in the services business when you're providing something four company let's say for example creating the graphics the images that people post on their instagram account when people subscribe to your service when they pay you for that service. Their business is reliant on you. They're getting customers through instagram. Because of your images you have a customer for life. They're not gonna shut that off. This is why people love services because you plug into somebody's business and if you deliver them are wife you. Give them what they're looking for. They're relying on you. They're not going to cancel you. Your job is just to keep the quality up and that really is your bread and butter but there's nothing like having a customer that really needs you to run their business. So think about that when you're choosing which services to build your digital marketing agency around thanks again and i'll check you in tomorrow's episode. I'll see you then take care

Be Sure to subscribe to make day on Apple podcasts. Or wherever you listen to podcasts. You don't miss a single episode guys. Welcome to the show from the cheap seats squad brothers here. We have a fantastic show today. we get to sit down and talk to a gentleman who has done really interesting stuff in the world of sports. He is the star the creator of Sport Science on ESPN among other projects. And other. You know it was built out of other shows that he had done in these science realm John Ranks. He's a huge sports fan. Knows his stuff so well and we sit down and talk to him about the origins of that show and sort of analytics and the ability to test all these things in compare cake somebody strengthened speed in one area and apply it somewhere else. It is fascinating. It's a great conversation I'll do quick hits on our own and then later at the end of the show. I don't know if you heard this news. But Nicholas Cage our buddy. Nick CAGE IS GOING TO BE PLAYING. Joe Exotic. That is like perfect casting on. I don't know WHO's CRAZIER NAKED. Kinky may become Like like Nikkei's might get arrested and go to jail just to definitely once. He found out that he's playing jugs attic. Like just bought a lion now with a line is at any rate. We're going to get a voicemail from him US lots to talk about. I know J. You are We're in the midst of and are watching the last dance which is just fascinating In and we can talk about that as well It's a it's a convergence of a lot of things I I've been trying to figure out why the last answer so is such a big deal ran in. I think it's number. One were starved for new content in. This is the newest thing that's coming out and it is new. It's like kind of the best of what we can do right now. Other than cheap seats being brought back. It's the best of what can be done right now. It's a new take on the old experience it's Mixed with something new and unknown and so it's exciting. I love it and I think we all are now. That were six seven weeks in to eight weeks eight weeks. This locked down. We are missing sports in a way that that I'm longing for it. I'm really sad. I've gone through all the old games I wanNA watch and I need something new. I know some of the sports nats our top take. Today is to talk about what some of base a similar sports are talking about. What is their plan? The plan for coming back so I saw this reported. I saw it on CNN so it wasn't on ESPN. It wasn't on like I didn't see it on like bleacher reporter in out. I mean I saw it on. Cnn S- you know when he gets to CNN that it's real the ad that it's just they wouldn't report on CNN doesn't do sports so they wouldn't report on it if it wasn't like a legitimate day and saw USA Today a baseball beat writer. Who was talking about the MLB? Excuse me is really looking towards starting the season at the end of June at July first by the latest in having a hundred game season which by the way is we talked about this so many people feel like the. Mlb season is so long that what's the point You know like hundred sixty two games. Why should we care about this moment or this staying or this find his his bad game like it just discourages? It's not like college football. Every play means something it's not even like the NFL the NFL has. They're talking about expanding the seventeen or eighteen games. Fine the still you know like you can lose a game in the NFL. And it doesn't mean. No-one goes undefeated Lost the Super Bowl. So what I'm saying is like twelve in four you can Very easy way to still win the Super Bowl. You can lose some games. The point is baseball. Whatever you lose if you lose sixty times in in baseball you are an unbelievable team like maybe close to all time. Great in had lost eighty times won the world series. So they're talking about starting at one hundred game series without fans and you know there was one game that was played in Baltimore a few years back right after the verdict came down that those police officers got off for the killing of of a of a young African American man and they there was like potential rioting in Baltimore and so they said we're not going to gather this group of people together in the Orioles in. I forgot who it was. I WANNA say the raise but I could be wrong. Played a game with no fans in the stands and yes there's photos of it in. It looks like batting practice. It doesn't even look like it's real however I do think there are ways to frame it from shooting standpoint to wear the person at home watching the game will not a suffer that much. The idea that they're doing in front of an open stadium. I mean the joke is that the rays have been playing in front of an empty stadium for years and they were off team last year. Wasn't it wasn't it like five thousand people at a Marlins game so it felt like they haven't done anything like this before but I do believe that this is the way forward people need it. If you're again fifteen million people watch the draft and that was like I but it's United from their houses. Yeah I agree I agree. The question is so. This is forcing us to ask the deepest question about what we miss about sports and I think what we miss about. Sports is the unknown knowing when two teams lace them up and get on the field to play. We're talking to the highest level athletes in their chosen in gibbons facing off against each other. That's what we want to see. So Jake when you and I went to the Bengals the game to watch to do the piece about the bengals cheerleaders the bengals about wanting to be the to the first two ben guys Which was so fun. We stood in the corner of the end zone. Like back a few yards and watched and we watched Seattle play. And we watched someone catch a touchdown like six foot Receiver over a defensive back right in the corner right bias. And what he had to do with his body the way he had a contorted in where he had to go to make. That catch was just he? High pointed it and it was like something you just. That's the best of the best of the best. You're watching that happen in. You say you're watching the best athletes or the best athletes in the world. Pull off something at his own limits of athletic ability. That's what we WANNA see. We care about that. Obviously the fans matter. But you know what at this point? You can't argue it. It's almost like you know it is what it is. Were watching which get in you. Don't get upset period so I'm crossing my fingers like you are. Maybe baseball. Baseball can pull a hundred games off in this year. You know I thought about early. Wise it people like why is it? Important why support we condemn of this because it is going to help you get through. We say to yourself. How are you going to help people get through what we continue to do this podcast? Even though there is no there are no sports. We continue to do this podcast because we want to give people something new that they haven't heard different. Take on something something that they haven't thought of would try and like rub two sticks together to make interesting interviews and interesting things in comedy our takes on the world because we want to give somebody a recent new and that's sports does that's what we do and I think it's our. It's our only way to help us get through this time and bridge us to the next time which will hopefully be full on sports again on comedy and interact for the time being what we got and I'm very excited on the other side. This break a great guest. He's the man who created sports science and he's with us right around on the other side of this break corner all right guys.

Espn civically with the Science of Sports and Sports. Science John. Branca's thank you so much for joining us on the cheap seats man really appreciate you guys have me. It's amazing the rise of your show and I also what I would say is the I categorize what you do as something that we never realized we need at love but as soon as we have it were like where. Why didn't we have this long ago? I think obviously technology has helped but you sort of build a niche allies. We needed now. We loved crave a Lubbock. Yeah I re- I really appreciate it. It's an interesting interesting sort of evolution. A lot of people are always like well. How did how did you get that job? I made the job you know. I own the company and we had two divisions a sport division in a Science Division and it was a production company and we ended up fusing those two things together in a show called. Extreme martial arts was on discovery. Tom Cruise did the wraps for in it was very successful and then then we did a fight. Science it was on National Geographic. That was so successful if Fox on geographic in Fox sports and You know we basically combine sport. Science and a lot of people are like God. How'd you come up with that idea and I feel like there's no way obviously the first one to come up with that idea? I think we were just the first ones to executed in a way that became difficult to compete with so it was really entertaining a educational. We got the world grays athletes. We never paid for anybody to be on You know obviously it ended up on. Espn so it became very hard to compete with so don't vary very To you know we made a little dent in the sports universe In allowed people to look at sport through a different Lens totally and I do think that like teams in there are now analytics departments within teams. That maybe didn't exist before it used to be like pre moneyball was like just let the scout go out and guide test the I. I don't I and now just so much more about how this guy's body makeup is fast. He's going in this scenario and it is like almost setting up those experience experiment you guys would do on the show but in in putting that in how do we analyze our players in think about the draft that just happened the NFL draft there guys. Go in the draft that you say to yourself. How did they find this person? And then you start to realize no. It's because they're putting the Science of sports together that they're like this guy who went to a tiny college maybe a breakout star in the NFL. And we just know that analytics means he might be that right. I mean it's interesting because a lot of the story that analytics will tell is whether or not someone would I like to refer to is in the goldilocks zone. Big enough strong enough fast enough. But not too fast. Not too slow. Just right You know I I point to stat often about you. Know People Fall in love with the top the curves and I love to try to put in perspective. That very rarely is the top of the curve. The right answer in anything except you know if you want to run one hundred meter dash. You wanted to be the fastest person if you're playing football if you take the top five running backs of all time. The exception to this is a believe Adrian. Peterson just moved into the top five so he took top four. None of them are over. Six feet. Tall date average weight is two hundred twelve. None of them were the fastest in The fastest person on their team even at their own position they but they were all big enough strong enough fast enough and That goldilocks zone is what people really need to understand in terms of evaluating a player evaluating how special something actually is And that's led me to a lot of different conclusions Beyond football and just evaluating talent. It's really John a lot of conclusions on you know in terms of the best businesses out there terms of the best of anything. It's usually not the top of the curve. It's usually something that's in that goldilocks zone. It's amazing and so then. What is that is there? Sort of in inexplainable special sauce. That people have that cannot be quantified with science but does sort of okay so Emmett Smith was you know the the leading rusher of all time and like you said he's probably six feet tall die like Julian Edelman. Kakadu you even out for someone like that. Yeah I mean. Look at look at element. I mean wasn't even over back quarterback at Kent State. You know what I find. Very interesting is Athletes it when we analyze sports. Football is an athletic sport. It is not the proverbial sort of ten thousand hours sport with the exception of the position of quarterback may be linebacker You know I mean you can. You can teach a great athlete to be a good receiver fairly quickly. I mean if you're a great athlete if you're Julian Edelman and you're playing quarterback and you could stop and start and understood the game and you can turn something like that into a receiver and that's not shocking. I'm that you could. It's it actually happens more often than we think. And ask what? Let's go to the magic of Bella check is that he's he's very Is Very divorced from the idea of. Oh you are a quarterback in college. Therefore you're a quarterback it's hey you're a particular kind of athlete and in his system. He loves LITTLE GUYS. Running a slant. He loves that idea. That's right so that's where you get the Wes Welker Jillian Jillian Ataman lineup. All the receivers. He doesn't like the big guys on the inside. Run that quick little slant and he wants bigger receivers on the outside who can run flies in streaks and he and the reason being is he keeps it pretty simple. I love to tell everybody that football is just to get just like baseball is a game of timing and how much you can throw. Somebody's timing football is just. It's it's a magic trick every play. You're trying to convince somebody. Hey I'm going to go live to actually go going right and when you have three options like the way that the Patriots have set it up you know for you know for as long as you've been doing it it's when you're trying to defend three options it's it becomes very top so that that's really what's been at. The core of their success is that he keeps it. Very simple but disguises it very well and so now what's okay. I'm glad you brought that up because I'll go one step further. We were speaking to when we worked at the NFL network. With Taylor grade defensive back with Pittsburgh and I said Okay told me that. What is the difference between a good quarterback in the NFL? And Tom Brady. Aaron Rodgers drew. Brees what what makes them much better in a very scientific way. He said it is very similar to a conversation. I had with Pedro Martinez when talking about pitching is that Tom Brady. Drew brees and in an era writers can put the ball in a one foot by one foot box. That only the receivers hands can catch which you're talking about little guys he throws it low and they're low and he puts his spot that if your defense back. Ike Taylor said either have to interfere with the guy and get a penalty called or or hope that it doesn't get called often it doesn't get called the guy drops it. These guys are so good with their hands that they're gonNA catch most times which is why they're successful down. Which is the pinpoint accuracy of a quarterback. Mike Brady in. That system is amazing so now that Tom Brady is in Tampa with weapons that he has. Now we're really going to see is Bill Belichick What was the sort of the what was driving force exactly was Brady or was it bill? Bella checker was it both now. Who'S GONNA survive? Yeah I mean. I think it's it's I think it's pretty obvious what's going to happen. You GET GRONK and you get Tom Brady to join a team with Mike Evans. And you're like okay. You know like you've got you've got a short option in grant you got along option in Evans you've got you know anybody else coming out of the backfield. And all of a sudden you've got that three-pronged it Brady is going to be very disciplined So the initial season really the test. It's IT I think it'll be a shame when you know Brady's GonNa win in Tampa and Bella Checks GonNa win in New England. I mean they're both GonNa win I hope that we don't take sides and say see Brady never needed Bella check because Bella checks magic was longevity and consistency and getting everybody to be on the same page. Can Bruce Areas do that In Tampa Consistent Lake can he keep filling roster get guys on the same page and sort of be that still Jackson type coach that Bella check also is where you kind of? Give me an assembly of players. I need my two or three critical pieces but then I can make everybody else kind of follow along. There is a magic to that so I think they're going to be successful both brilliant in their in their own ways so the aren't dependent on each other but were dependent on each other for the longevity. But I don't think in any in a vacuum I don't think either will fail right. I agree with that a hundred percent. I think it'll be interesting to see how they both do. And for how long? I think that's what you're really yet to right now. I brought up Phil Jackson because obviously in the sports world. That's sort of the hottest topic right. Now is Jordan the Bulls Jackson that universe. And you know. I think now that we're watching. Jordan lay essentially watching his highlights. In his game you can innocence. Bring him more to the forefront and contextualized against someone like Lebron and obviously. These are the debates that people are having an have had forever. Can you in a sports science kind of away like evaluate Jordan's game and Lebron's game and understand sort of who they are in each other's worlds? Yeah you know we actually did. I've had that incredible honor to work with both of them and I'm pretty friendly with Jordan and I've had a chance to you know really dive into what makes Jordan Jordan. What makes Lebron Less when everyone tries to compare like who's better With Jordan Lebron debate on. I always say this does it does. Does that argument matter because they are. They're two completely different players. And and they and what? Where do we get by trying to? Can't we just decide? Those are two amazing athletes. Of course you know. It's like trying to decide which song is better but people WANNA know like that. That is their thing and one guy. Now I know and from a purely scientific point of view look when you break it down there completely different players. They played in totally different areas. Even though there was a slight overlap when Jordan came back to the third time. Yeah there's a slight overlap. But they're completely different. Eras totally different game game. I mean it's almost. It is honestly almost different sport. It's just you can't touch anybody now. Three pointers being hooked up from forty feet away. Like it's just not the same game so it's hard to really compare it but I will do this. In terms of comparison I will say that there are there in. Everybody should play this game at whole name ear replaceable players in in. Let's say the major the major sports in in our country. It's the war argument. It's the war of replacement. Okay Yep like you can like if you lose this player. Your team will not win the championship. So who's replaceable? And you know when you go down this game and and play let's play like the NFL and NBA. And you know the baseball is a little bit harder. Because it's you know players are not involved very often so if you just take take football and in basketball years the truth when people say well Joe Montana. He's a replaceable. You're like Jeff Initiative. He was replaced so Joe Montana as great as he was. Somebody else stepped in and one super bowls right after so. He was by definition replaceable. When you like go down this list and start saying well who is genuinely irreplaceable. Lebron has made the best argument ever that he is the most irreplaceable player arguably in the history of the NBA including Jordan. Yeah because I mean if Micheal Jordan playing in his era if he if he wants to go play for Washington bullets which he ended up. Playing for the wizards you ended up going to play for. Just pick your team. Do they win a championship in? I think that what you're seeing in the last in in the last dance is Jordan. Big Very Open about without Phil Jackson. Without Scottie. Pippen and went out without Ryan Rodman. You hear him saying we wouldn't have one is much. That's what I think is so endearing is that Jordan is opening up saying I Michael Jordan would not have been Michael Jordan without Scottie. Pippen and Phil Jackson. That loved the line about how? He wasn't a Phil Jackson. Fan Initially obviously because of Texas triangle. Offense how they you have a player in a system where you have this very rare combination now. How crazy is this and I think I try trying to explain this to my son who's fourteen and watched in the last dance together and it's amazing so with his son his watch with eleven year old saw that it's the best of like because they don't know and you're actually the F- bombs he's bloodshed because he's having a little drink. I might give him like. Were just throwing everything and just watch. Just watch yet here. It's it's amazing. And here's what's fascinating is when you know. Even my fourteen year old son watching watching the series. He's like man. They played hard back then. Yup I said it was a different time. The rules were different in the expectation was different the Michael Jordan. If you look at his annual salary he was not making money until he came back the second time he wasn't he just wants to make money and relative to the League he and that wasn't his driving force. His driving force was win. Win Win Win Win. So I love the Rodman episode that they just played. I just love watching. How look at the Zen master on how to deal with Robin is Dennis beat Dennis as long as the exchange is? I'll let you be you as long as what? You are is a champion. Then you do whatever you want. I don't care and I love that idea of how Phil was able to wrangle in those egos everybody on the same page. I mean you even you can even put it in the same terms as like a defensive matchup on on the post on the block right so if you've got a guy to hang it against you bang the Bang Banging against you if you bang back against him and that's GonNa create a battle if you back away. Just let him go is GonNa fall out and so it's almost like pulling the chair out from under when you're in some ways that you bring that up because you mentioned Tom Brady. Having three options is essentially. He's got the triangle. I mean so texts winner even a translates to another thing. It's like the best way to see. The triangle was in the episode. They just aired that above. You're looking down on the court and you're watching plays developed where the triangle starts here on the left side and then it moved the ball. Who's the triangle moves that it moves this way and again it was in in an effort to give the play all the players and ability to step up and I tell him all yet right after that that was ever let me also it relates to what you do. Sorry to say to hear what you have to say but I do think the reason. Why fill his so prolific is because he was so forward thinking it wasn't like let me get the best sources. Just let them be who they are. He was line. I WanNa make you guys better by maybe making the best a little bit worse that goes back to. You're not able to top of the curve and make you a little worse to make the rest of people even better so we all move up occurs in the middle total we become a team it totally and I love to point out a couple of things. One Dasa football and basketball in watching the last dance. This was the thing that really stood out to me. Especially with my son watching right he he just said God who he's like. Jordan looked so much like Kobe. It's like well Kobe's emulating Jordan and I said what do you think the odds are that? Some kid named Kobe Bryant. God rest his soul is growing up in Italy. Idolizing Jordan like right down to the to the how he sticks out his tongue when when he gets into the League he succeeds by having the same coach as George. What are the odds of this happening? It's crazy so when he talk about braiding his three options that I keep saying. It's like very simple Sorta when everyone saying you know I think the chiefs might be a one trick pony. That's year I'm like listen. The chiefs of the first Legit Team. That had four options. That's and they just keep it super simple. That's like I'm GONNA check down at a quick slad. I've got a long and now you've got a guy who can run when you add that that becomes really hard and that whenever as well what if they lose Tyreek Hill you replace that like a great receiver but you replace that what happens if you lose Kelsey. You replace that. That's all good. You know Mike Holmes Little Hardier replace but the option is tough and in that super bowl there was a moment where they were down in and Mahomes is standing on the sideline holding onto his shoulder pads and it always got his mouthpiece out and he's not freaking out he's not yelling at one is just looking at your kid man. This kid is going to bring them back. And it's like when it all breaks down when everything breaks down the options you just described breaks down. He might still be able to get you the yards. You need the thirty yard pass. Whatever total by his own creativity? That's what makes him special now makes and that's what's GonNa make them very tough to beat totally. I mean they're credible so It's it's it's been awesome to watch. That's for sure. Awesome noticing. You have to get going. I have to yeah new. We appreciate you so much for being here. Thank you so much yet. Let people know. What kind of stuff did they can All of our fans can dig into on your absolutely. Yeah you know I mean I appreciate you guys so much. The I'm working with a company called kill cliff now you go to kill cliff. All DOT com. It's the ultimate clean energy. Drank incredible company have been approached by pretty much everybody in space. And it's the one product that really believe in Especially in the drink. Spacesuits clean energy drink Got A PROJECT COMING OUT WITH INTEL. And just go to John Brinkley dot com. Follow me on twitter. Bring US under store but definitely underscore and definitely checkout cliff. 'cause it's one of the few products at scientifically. I could really get behind. We will definitely do that as a weekend warriors ourselves. I'm sure we can benefit from it and we appreciate. This was so much fun and hopefully we can have you back on again in the future. You were amazing. Awesome guys thanks so much. Okay bye our guys. Welcome back to the show. jump is phenomenal phenomenal. So great in again I was totally wowed by his knowledge. Like his is the depth of his knowledge. He someone who doesn't WanNa get caught flat-footed not knowing any you could tell he you tell a lover of the game in at the same time he He loves Kinda what it all represents. I'm I was really impressed with him. All right what. I was impressive. I what I love about him is that he hasn't changed the game necessarily but he has changed how we view what already exists. And that's very hard to do and I love that quick shower. Yes Aaron Gordon J turn heads at the twenty twenty slam dunk contest when he literally got up over Taco fall so we watched it. Lebron I watched and you think should. Should he have won? Seven six dude. At the end wasn't just for that dunk. He had better dunks overall. And the S. Luck. But that was the problem because I watched a little thing on bleacher report. Where so Aaron Gordon? Two handed slam over Taco Fall. Got A forty seven dare. Jones junior ended up. He you know he he lost he lost a Derek Jones. Junior ended up losing by one point. The whole thing the he Aaron Gordon then released a distract called nine out of ten that where he called out. Dwayne Wade who was one of the people who so basically I think what they were trying to do was have somebody gave him a nine and the other person give them a chance that there could be another done but three people gave him nine instead of only one and he got a forty-seven instead of fifty and he lost it. And that's the second year on the road that he's sort of been snubbed. Like this dude is an unbelievable unbelievable docker. He's like he's like as big as you can be like Lebron. He reminds me of the in in body size. So he's bigger sticks eight or six nine Erin quarter maybe six ten I mean he's he's up there but he also can fly like six griffin you'd like Blake Griffin inside. That's that's who I am too and you know what's so funny. And what such a bummer. And this is what I think needs to change in this whole process ran is I think they need to come up with a new scoring process and the same way that they changed the way you score in a game in the All Star game which made the fourth quarter the greatest all star game that in the NBA is so nimble. They should do that but like you can't just wait. He is like royalty in the NBA. No-one no-one hates him. Like wait. Screwed up but again like you said. These guys shouldn't be judging this thing just like trump judging a beauty pageant shouldn't happen only is going to go with the woman that he thinks he can make. Mistakes made like like holding a beauty pageant at all. So Hall of fame. Forward Scottie. Pippen and actor Chadwick Bozeman gave benign to with Bozeman. That is the problem right there. What the Hell is Chadwick? Bozeman doing like appreciate him being there Chadwick Bozeman can throw out the first ball chatting with those men can say. Are you ready to duck? But don't give back much responsibility to ability she should not be. Judging a slam dunk. Chadwick Bozeman was introduced someone at the screen actors. Guild choice awards. Fine Air these big fan like we shouldn't be judging and we come from the world of sports. We should not be. Judging knew one day I'd be district knew one day I'd be good in. You'd come for me. Did Not Make me hungry. He wraps in the track. You good lyrics. See you in the hallway of when you say young about to put on a show. Didn't know that was code for your about to get roll. I understand he's mad but Aaron Gordon. You can't go after like this. You know look. He got screwed two years in a row. I what can what can you say I mean? The truth is he's playing for Orlando is probably not GonNa you know when it was not bad bad. But they're not GONNA win title on they're not GONNA win titles. So this is the one piece of hardware this guy can take. Home is that he said after this year because I feel like I should have to trophies jumping over someone seven five and Duncan is no easy feat. Why I get a forty seven. Come on what are we doing? He's right what they're doing you. Chaz with you got wick bones bozeman. Yup Os Magic Bow Jag horsemen that on the episodes. They call them. Chadwick bows the coach chat. Bozeman nonni derided district. So then I actually saw a conversation between twain wave and Aaron Gordon where they like a managed out instagram. Dinner or something like that. They kind of talked about it. And and Gordon who was kind of like Dwayne Wade said. Listen dwayne. Wade's thing was. I didn't think your final dog and you can speak to this. Because I didn't see the other guys filed he said I thought on that Final Dog. Your Dunk wasn't as good as he has. However I thought you were better on the whole thing. I thought you were better throughout the entire. So we'VE BEEN IN ROAST BATTLES. Where like you should judge on the whole thing you should. That's where I think. Fifty having limit of fifty for they're giving out too many fifties is what I'm saying so a fifty should only be for like an extraordinary out of the world like the average dunk in the dunk contest. In my opinion should be like a forty or forty five. Like you should only hold forty five nines or are like gymnastics like no one gets a ten once in a great while you get it and then that way you reserve the tent so maybe Aaron Gordon had to tens if you lose on his last dog. He's got the cushion to win. Still did more. It makes. It makes all the matter. Here's the deal. There was a million on the line. That's the other thing is a million dollars on the line. Okay I'm not seeing. Aaron Gordon is making money but there should be no money on the line like one and two should split the same money right. You make it to the finals. You guys get the same and we all just about the dunks okay if you're going to have. Chadwick Bozeman call in a decided than no. That's like letting Dan ackroyd sing on. We are the world or decide who gets to sink which it doesn't make all right. Let's move on so the worm can confirm and can squirm and all over the practice facility. So of course now as we were saying before with the last dance all this stuff is coming out about you know Dennis Rodman going on his quote unquote vacation that Phil let him take. And all that stuff so. The full details of Kerman Electra hiding as Jordan summoned. Dennis Rodman like. She's really told. The story is now out in the open and that story won't top in any way. What Carmen Electra revealed about the then couples other Chicago escapades electrical the La Times at two months had sex all over the Bulls practice facility. What is that contraining tables like? That is just ridic. I don't mind what you do like Dennis. Rodman was famously. Took a dumb in the hallway of North Korean hotel which we always ask what's in Dennis Rodman dump at this point. I A cocaine and lucky. Charms in loops One day when the Bulls had a day off from practicing. Dennis said at a surprise for me. Electric told the paper he blindfolds made. We got on his motorcycle. That doesn't sound safe. Does guy would blindfold themselves and get on the motorcycle. That's right when he finally takes the blindfold off we're standing at the Bulls Practice Facility Center court. I'm sure she was like great. Were here at your job. It was crazy to kids in a candy store. Where you a kid in a candy story? We were eating all right by the way. She's forty eight. We were eating popsicles from the fridge and pretty much having sex all over the damn place in the physical therapy room. I was right in the weight room. Obviously on the court obviously Jay to be honest. I didn't think he ever ever worked so hard in his life. She said with a laugh. Robin outworked people on the boards. Okay he got the rebound. I don't know if Carmen Electra was coming out of another relationship but he definitely pulled that rebel. You knew how to get a rebound. I know you've heard people say Dennis Rodman's not that interesting. I think he's one of the most interesting people in the rhyme and asked her what she wanted to drink. She did not return. Rodman's calls for a long time. But when she did their romance took off quickly as noted in the fourth episode. This show he was the bad boy basketball he dated Madonna. So like it's sort of like like in the Industry J. It's who said. Yes to this Guy Madonna saying yes to Robin like open the door for him to get so many other. Seeing the play was amazing. Michael Scottie Pippen. So she made it. Seem like Michael and Scottie. Pippen brothers you know Michael you know the Pippen's Michael Scottie. Pippen Gutting Knighted Chicago. Dennis told me you're not leaving after that. It was quickly fell for each other pretty fast. I wonder if they connect today. This is why you know what I mean. I wonder if they're still in touch. I wonder if this documentary gotten back in touch. Carmen Electra. Right now and you would have never guessed or maybe what is in a way better place in Dennis Raw. Yeah I mean. Both of them are were thick is broke. Rodman has no money. We know that has like Robin's friends with Kim. Jon you think like Carmen Electra can like hangs with Putin now right. This is why you don't get a Tattoo Young AIDS specifically if you have dreams again backed by the NFL. Especially if you're a kicker new and this crazy New England patriots rookie. Kicker Justin Roar Wasser R. H. R. W. SEC are has bombed like a version of like the Boffin SS says. A Tattoo on his left arm is not meant to symbolize the markings of the three percenters right wing militia group that I formed in two thousand eight and that he plans to get it covered up plans to get covered up. You won't even like lineup on the left Hash Mark. Now just getting the Patriots selected roar Wasserman's in the draft with another hundred fifty nine pick overall. So that's amazing. There were another hundred picks made. After this guy you a Nazi well. We don't know I got that techy. When I was a teenager. Nab have a lot of family in the military. I thought it stood for a military support. Think it stood for that. You didn't think it stood for that you know. It didn't stand for that Russia to listen to some guy bullshit his way out of it. Obviously it's evolved into something. I don't WanNa represent when I look when I look back on an. I should have done way more research before. Any marker symbol on my body. It's not something I ever want to represent. It will be covered. Here's the thing it evolved or you evolved it devolved and maybe you evil maybe but the truth is if you know you could potentially get drafted. You cover that thing. How do you not know what that means? How are you? It's like when a coach Joe Paterno said I do. I had no idea that this was going with Sandusky. Really nobody you so you have no knowledge of what's going on in your team like a head coach. The team is like your body and the head coach should know every single thing that goes on in knows what's happening if you don't you're willfully not looking at it like you said. Jay is will only not looking at what that meets on. Its website to three. Percents sits in anti-government militia but we will defend ourselves when necessary. Grace the astles who are protesting right now bringing guns to your mayor's office and yet you don't need to be associated with that and maybe again it should have been covered before the draft. If Joe Exotics Boyfriend who is actually straight and had a baby with the with the receptionist there can get a tattoo of Joe Dodig. That was on his right above his junk covered up albeit poorly.

There was a structural APP as Pluto Stop Them Saturn's degree and he said hey remember what happened the last week in April remember what happened the station it was a direct moon and it was Santa Terriers which I know is a big fun moon for me and he called to say you know we're going to be selling the condo and then he can't and what's we're saddened stopped at the end of April And so in April you say you WanNa Watch for stories from April recurring so in my life April was when we had ford to buy it so what I like to buy by myself so I said yes so we're not closing until next April but when in my I remember my sister remembered when he bought it and that's actually when I moved into my apartment in New York that I've lived in for forty years so now in buying where I'm GonNa live it watching your life go back to that last week in April and see what was going on then and what now is moving forward puto stopping and he's going direct in San so I looked and I thought nothing's GonNa come to that and then he asked me again then avoid moon and I thought nothing's GonNa come that but then this week as Putin passionate about as Venus goes into Scorpio also mercury enters the shadow of his upcoming retrograde this week on the twelfth and we also have Venus the planet of love passionate connection going into Scorpio so on the day that I committed to buying the condo you're going with the new life says and Pluto moving forward he's really inviting us and then the cop in later this week we have a full moon in Lebron so you said well like January maybe January twelve he goes yeah that sounds like a great day so Saturn Pluto or meeting on January twelfth and they're starting the news it is and he's GonNa Start talking to you about the mercury retrograde that we're all gonna go through in November and then he goes direct in December includes he was on my Venus and then in the end of this week Venus's going into Scorpio when my Venus return think about what you're buying what you're loving attention to and of course my house in the eight th House Scorpio so it's like what's the taxes I have to pay I mean I can figure out my carrying costs and all that it's forty years cool how what one not planning living another forty years 'cause I'm sixty five but subset thereof so you're making plans you're making that vision for from Fort Lauderdale and she and Hannah just last drive home we had a lovely we've having a lovely week here we were supposed to come down to take care of my Dad Scorpio so we're about to enter Murphy retrograde so you want to pay attention this week to the the stories that get revealed to you the things you have to research and Ooh and then Jupiter and Pluto are meeting at twenty four twenty four and twenty two so there's a lot of activity in that twenty two to twenty there this week and the two of them are helping you to look deeper they're also of course revealing the secrets Venus when she goes into Scorpio she four degrees of Capricorn which means anything in your chart with twenty two to twenty four is really active on my case I'm fifty doing what's important to you and sometimes you may have tried something which you know I had someone who did that they tried something and they said Gee I think I wanna try and they went back to the boring law firm because they realized that that was more important to them that structure that was consistent and unchanging a little bit more exciting job rather than working you know kind of the boring law firm and they tried it and they went you know I really kind of like the boring law firm feels the payoff and the tax story and supposedly you know rumor has it there's a whistle blower in the Tax Department about trump and his taxes. I'm like Oh yeah now here's really hard trends that's actually all next year truth be told because Saturn and Pluto or meeting twenty two with a different plan or plan they remember you don't have to commit to it until January but you wanna be thinking about the structure of your life when it looks like where it's kind of cool and off we go so you WanNa Watch in your life where these changes are being asked of you and where you're being invited to kind of come up a two mile a fifty four model to we have a t square at those degrees I have a t square at those degrees so I'm making big structural decisions about the nature of my life is going to be so you know we're all looking and we're all deciding what structures are GonNa bet suits us for the next chapter end December when Jupiter and Saturn meet up December of next year Jupiter and Saturn meet up and they say okay we're going now for twenty years her and start with the next thirty six years that seems really big start with the next twelve years start with the next year because you're putting it in place between now and so you're GonNa have we're all going to have a lot of structural changes and people keep reporting to me Oh my job my partner my parents my house my and so you know we'll see stories unfolding pay attention and somebody asked me you know the the have really hard transit in this chart so in my eighth house so watch where this is going on in your eighth house where Mercury and Venus or in Scorpio causing a little excitement mercury already there Venus I was more exciting and getting a cubicle and having a desk and you know knowing what you were going to do every day as opposed to not knowing any any given day what the job is the story that are contingent on the decisions being made but now that was moving forward and Saturn's moving the structure of your life what's the vision for all the structures that are changing 'cause whenever a structure changes you get a new structure in right but there's transfer taxes and there's you know what's The tax implications of having a place that it would technically be a second home you know that kind of thing so you can't nature of course a vacuum said you wanna watch with toppled and moved this week big big stuff and good evening and then it goes into Aquarius at eleven forty two it's an Aquarius Sunday night Monday all day Tuesday forward and they're meeting in January the twelfth we're all making decisions about the structures that were gonNA put in place and so I want that no I don't whatever think of the structures of your life look at what's it twenty two capricorn in your chart in my case it's a lot I have a lot of washed I'm like I know I know it's Saturday and Pluto their relentless when they were fighting was when we had the World Trade Center right these guys are not light twenty two and figure out what that structure is you know so if I buy the place and I'm not living here do I rented you know there's a whole bunch of questions that are part of weights they're really about what is it you're trying to build create what do you want you know what is it what's your vision for your life what's your vision all night Tuesday and then it goes into Pisces at twelve oh five. PM Lunchtime on the third November third so it's void just pay attention over the next few months we race towards their marriage you know how it is when you're getting ready to get married if you've gotten married there's that whole anticipation there's gives us a lot of optimism and a lot of options and a lot of directions. The Moon is then Boyd from to twenty-seven Tuesday night Tuesday afternoon today the moon is very happy in in Capricorn and it is and I just had my friend grab from Fort Lewis Assistance I want to I don't want that and really start paying attention 'cause this week we're going to start getting pushed and I mean I know some of your already feeling like an and Ben Guys Jupiter is the relationships Pluto is the structures and the transformation and we go forward we also have young poor this week and that happened thirteenth or so of two thousand eighteen and then there was a full moon in December on around December thirteenth Friday and the going Boyd Aspect is moon in Pisces sex style to Pluto in capricorn so that's a lot about the structures that were building and the structures were created I'm forty six am so it's an aries all day Saturday all day Sunday and it goes boyd at five fifty nine. PM on Sunday be warning on the third and then it's in Pisces Wednesday Thursday Friday and it goes void at five fifty five in the ATM and his void all day on Wednesday we had Rosh Hashanah last week on the new moon on libra right so for the for the Jewish folks it's the Jewish New Year and then eighty degrees airy so it's going to square the Saturn Pluto Station from last week at twenty on October third okay so there's a continuation of the story and that's when all the whistle blowers hit Washington but whatever your story was back then on the third the the full moon from aries time of eighteen which which was March and then January of nineteen and now so shen to really unfold this is what you're doing now on how does your life one one full to carry you forward right so this week let's look at the moons agrees is a nice breeze blowing and I'm here with my sister my sister's friend Molly from high school and my friend Stacy came up from Florida kind of like Oh and here's another part of the story oh here's another part of the story so watch for news from April of eighteen and December of last ten months from now in cancer time when the cancer moon is in the cancer son is at twenty degrees it'll square the moon so there's a story that's unfolding I'm sorry January thirteenth in Capricorn and now we have the full moon in aries and Libra of course is the fun and then in eight there sorry the thirteenth of October and there is a full moon on Sunday at five eight PM and it's the twenty right John Kapoor the Day of Atonement where we released and move forward into the next white And then on Saturday the moon goes into areas at twelve the stuff you have to plan you have to figure out Oh my God I have to that a lot of stuff that goes on with that and honoring that and giving that a permission Asian that they started and they figure it out but the area's moon tends to be a bit of a law and order aspect in general tale nice little capricorn I hadn't seen a number of years so today on October sixth the Moon God these are all East Coast Times the moon goes void at seven twenty five pm in his Voice Watch for that story 'cause that's GonNa pop and it's kind of tied into these links to these these these planetary stations of Pluto in and Saturn it Kinda POPs it in squares it now remember we look at the phones we go back to the areas moon of twenty eighteen that would have taken place on April appear to show up in the news this week on the full moon right sometimes it's a murder that happened and they find him guilty other times it's an investigate but the moon is void all day Friday so all week has nice closing aspects the sex towel to Jupiter and the Moon sect style to Pluto and of course these are the because there it's the same degree and a lot of times what the heavens does what happens in the heavens I don't know that they do it but there's a synchronicity where the story title to twenty seven PM when it goes void with textile to Jupiter Moon Sex told you put her as a nice aspect and air moons sex time Jupiter and Sagittarian it shouldn't but it also ties back to the third where Saturn stationed on that degree in April of this year and now Pluto stationed own you know usually we have a law law enforcement development on the areas move and Lieber there it's GonNa talk about justice so watch for in information it's not scary it's just change bye-bye I don't remember if you want you can look in the look in your clan what degrees they are you know so you have something that eighteen so the sun this week has square nodes today asking it to make choices about how to proceed and what to do now if you remember normally easy moon's an easy sons but there because they're working with the marriage planet the marriage happening in January during the week because it's Aquarius Moon in Pisces with good closings Sunday's week runs from twelve libra to twenty one what are we actually GonNa do about it you know so that's Monday Tuesdays Nice and easy but Venus goes into Scorpio Wednesdays and Thursdays and then on Monday on Sunday rather the thirteenth that's pretty easy flowing day but the next day Sun Squares Pluto on the fourteenth so you'll feel the sun the next Sunday is a little stressful not bad stressful 'cause there's nice aspects in the morning but whenever anything's in areas these days or cans Anibal more oh my God what are we have to do so you know just kind of feel a little nicer on those days but the ethics weaker great for getting stuff launched and running and Venus and mercury went through this they already had the square to the nodes of fate inviting us to make choices and then this pops into a square to Saturn as I mentioned earlier so you have to change your hair you have to do this you have to do that so you WanNa Watch for the dissension energy around the marriage like well okay that's the marriage January right so this is kind of a discussion between the marital partners you know sometimes when you plan marriage some family member gets a little excited or the families saying Oh you know the Sun Squares Saturn on on Monday which happens once a year but we know that Saturn and Pluto are really working hard so this week the son is GonNa Square The sun is GonNa Square pattern and then next week on Monday the sun is GonNa Square Pluto so there's another story kind of unfolding as yes sir and fix signs municipal being Scorpio and she's going to pose who is retrograde so that's kind of an adjustment in your understanding of things are on Monday and that is you know kind of conversations about the marriage that's happening in January and what wants to happen but it is also in an aspect Neptune's there's a little bit of something you're unclear about you're not really seeing clearly and that will cause you to make an adjustment on the nine because the sun is in Sir there or libra they're forming hard aspects to the cardinal planets that Sammy Pluto so they just they're just a little more we think of them as in an aspect from the sun this week so the Sun 'cause I'm GonNa be at eighteen weaver is going to roll over that point and he planted in your charts GonNa have at that degrees going to have an aspect in has a number of squares that happened in the morning so that's got a little bit of you know kind of an Aha moment about how we're communicating and working and CBS to get fixed and they keep moving the surgery and I got an email from her this morning thing they moved it again Oh my God this is so stressful like you know everybody is adjusting so it's adjusted adjusted Justin just so the aspects this week that our health related or on the eleventh and on the thirteenth the eleventh is a bit of a one that's been an older story the easy Saturday has some separating energy Saturday the twelfth because the moon is opposite Mars and being this urine us which of course you're in this and be moving into Pluto Pluto's direct now so there's a kind of SOS coast story so really distressful days this week are are Monday and what's called an infant junk which is oh gee that's not quite going to work we have to maybe make a change in plans there are two helps best has health aspen the sun and Lebron comes to talk to Saturday Pluto because he essentially carries the message from Saturn diplo about what's happening when they get married in six this weekend remember because we're dealing with Saturn and Pluto a lot of times people are having health things you know I have a client who her son has around things and remember I keep saying structure you think of your life and what is built on and what all you know all the components that go into it this week very visible be he's moving quickly he's running from five Scorpio to fourteen and a half Scorpio and he has got an opposition to urine they're all up for renovation operation change what's the difference what do you WanNa keep what he wanted to get rid of the thirteenth the sun is going to be thank you Mary House on the seventh which is similar to you know where you're going to have kind of an awakening and like ooh wow what am I supposed to do with that it to the Fourteenth of course the sun is GonNa Square Pluto which is part two of his square to Saturn on the seven on Monday the seven mercury the one on the thirteenth is new and it's inviting you you've already kind of worked on it a little bit but it's inviting you to make some kind of structural changes the sun is going to be sick style to Jupiter which is a very nice juicy fun energy and that's very much about working together and what our vision is in how we're going to proceed last week when mercury sex style Jupiter was when Nancy Pelosi a couple of weeks ago when Nancy Pelosi announced we're gonNA impeach so the sun sex how jupiter thirteen probably is going to have something with that but in your own life there should have been some new fun thing coming in and then A. and then on the fourteenth as mercury comes to sex towel Saturn say okay now I'm going to put the structures in place from the start and kind of Aha moment best way to say it and then he has a couple of quintiles this week which are easy flowing things kinda working out coming together you put the structures in place around all the choices I'm making right so that's the mercury Venus this week as I mentioned earlier 'cause into Scorpion is to just and don't worry about it just give yourself permission I'm drinking minutes Oh you're getting me more on getting my sister's being a nice sister and bringing me more water other communications are easy kind of working out talking about deeper and then mercury has an aspect to the nodes of fate on the twelfth asking you much deeper there's a lotta deep energy rolling around in here that's pretty intense and with Venus Necessa quadrant to Neptune on the ninth I wanna Venus is in Scorpio and she's going to be traveling through Scorpio for best not nearly as long as mercury will be there she is in Scorpio and to make faded choices about the direction you want ahead him and what's important to you to grow and nurture so you WanNa look at the twelfth is kind of an important oh until she goes into Sagittarius on November first but what happens when Venus Center Scorpio she is really in the accounting mode can be some understanding or some some disillusionment perhaps about what you thought your dream was and how you thought it was going to work and we thought it was going to go libro on the Mars libro right so he's taking the trail but he's not going to catch up to all these Scorpio aspects for wow really urging but a lot of people go oh my God when she's in Scorpio so intense so everybody's going to get a little more emotionally intense on October eighth late but it's kind of the realization of how things are changing and shifting is pretty pretty potent and then she also has and of course Venus has an aspect and adjusting aspect to the wound on attempts to Chiron where she has an Incan junked around eleven thirty at night way but she's clear what she likes she doesn't so there's a lot of opportunity here to work with her and say oh that's what we're GonNa do then when we get to the I do I have to do oh wow I didn't realize that so Mars this week not particularly bad but once Venus changes in Scorpio when she changes stories to be told Mercury has the opposition on the seven she has the opposition acts as about she has the aspect the opposition to your nose on the eighth so she leaves libra which is one of our favorite signs and she goes into Scorpio which is not one of her favorite times I mean I live with

The only way Harden to Brooklyn will work | What to do with Big Ben | 1/13/21

"Welcome back to the front Michael Smith show. We have Blockbuster news in the NBA James Harden does the Brooklyn Nets? I have a lot for you in this podcast. Okay, we're going to talk about big threes in the NBA how they're actually can work how they can fail. We're going to talk about how this went in Brooklyn in particular can work out whether or not I think it will work and then we're going to have my father. Come on. It is a terrible way to be a Steelers fan. We're going to talk about the five options. The Steelers have with Big Ben what to do which ones which options we actually like and which ones we think the Steelers will you know in the end end up going with but let's talk about the big three's. Okay. So I have in front of me. I wrote out a nice little list right here for everybody watching you can see it Thursday. We're going to start with the 03. I'm sorry. Not o 3 just mm Spurs. Okay. This is the longest Dynasty the longest big three these guys all managed to stay together, but there is a pattern and these guys Nailed it. Okay, someone in these big threes always has to sacrifice in order to win a championship. Now. I'm going to run through them this one Duncan Parker and Ginobili who sacrifices off Manu Ginobili. He comes off the bench for these teams. Okay. He's the we loved, you know, the king of the eurostep, you know, he's great. They're all great. They're all hall-of-famers off, but there's no doubt about it man. He sacrifice. He didn't even start for these teams. Okay, that's a big ego blow to a lot of NBA players are not willing to do that and that'll come back in a little bit. So keep that in mind next we're going to go to gain weight Celtics. Who sacrificed Ray Allen now? A lot of the younger fans might not realise this but real and wasn't always just a shooter. He was a slasher a playmaker. He was like he was getting compared to be early in his career. It was kind of, you know, a similar thing between those two. He wasn't that okay. He sacrificed. He became a shooter. He was spotting up. He was letting Pierce to home of the ball control and it worked out man. I mean, it didn't end up working out in the long run. I don't think they like reality anymore, but they want a championship together. And that's the point. Okay moving on we have may be, you know, I don't know. What year do you want to call it? But we have the dynasty that never was the Thunder incredible drafting by presti here. Just absolutely a drafting run that maybe we'll never see again R Us K. Hardin who sacrificed James Harden James Harden came off the bench for these teams now they ran into a great Heat team and they didn't end up pulling it off, but That is the formula and they tried it and you know, it didn't work. Okay. Keep that in mind for later. Then we have the Heat team that beat the Thunder team LeBron Wade and Bosh course the heat off. We all know this story who sacrificed on these teams easily Chris Bosh. Okay. It's not closed Bosch was killing them in Toronto came over there. I had Ryan Hollins on the podcast for you know episode too I think and he said it wasn't even a big three. He called it a Duo because Bosh was such a sideshow on this team. He took less money to come, you know, he's he's banging the pain he had to do a lot of the dirty work. Okay, that's a big sacrifice. His points-per-game go way down. They went to titles wage worked out. Okay, then we go to the Warriors now, there's two versions of these Warriors, but they both work for the formula. Okay, you can go with the early one with you know, the splash Bros Place Draymond and then you can go to the later one, which is just absolutely ridiculous. And you had KD into the equation now who sacrifice some of these teams definitely clay and Draymond off. Clay guards the best player in the court every single night. He gets fifty points without even dribbling. Okay, he doesn't do that. Any of course you dream on his doing all the dirty work there. One of the most selfless teams of all time. Just watch I mean, we all watch these teams, but if you want to really go back and watch the highlights and just look at basketball Excellence. Look at the way. They work the ball on offense. This is a team that was completely thoughtless willing to sacrifice for each other and they won championships. They totally fit the formula also keep that in mind cuz Katie was on that team. Okay. We're getting to the Nets. Don't worry 2016 Braun Kyrie. K-LOVE. Definitely K-LOVE sacrifice here. Now it he got paid in the long run the cows rewarded him for his sacrifice. He got that big contract. I wish they may I bet they wish they didn't do that, but he sacrificed man. He wasn't getting all the shots. He had to do the dirty work and they pulled it off in 2016 Championship fits the formula dead. Okay, 20 21 the Brooklyn Nets trade for James Harden. I'm not going to go through all the trade details here. I'm sure you'll see that on Instagram or everywhere. Whatever you get your news. Okay, we're going to talk about. You know who's going to sacrifice your number one? Okay. I don't I'm not even sure. It's KD Kyrie and Harden like Harden already sacrificed. He tried that way. He tried that with KD on the thunder so very similar situation here for him. Then you have Kyrie who won on a big three team. Well, I you know, the big man was actually the one sacrificing so I'm not sure I don't think hardin's going to be willing to do it I Kyrie just such a big question mark I doubt it. I doubt it. I think it will have to be KD actually if if this thing's going to work I I have my doubts here. They're all very delicate egos. They all all dominant players. I'm not quite sure how this fits together. I mean, there's so so so talented it's hard to think that they won't be able to figure out in some capacity. I don't know if that equals a chance. Championship but someone's got a sacrifice man. That's that's the list. I just read you guys. That's how these things work. I just don't how could you say that? There's only one ball man. There's only one ball. Someone has to be willing to do the Dirty Work to sacrifice to score less points per game take less shots guard the hardest player math. I think it has to be KD. I think at this works out. Okay, if this for this to work out a lot of things need to happen now, I'm going to run through them right here. Number one. They need to figure out who needs to sacrifice. I thought enough about that when moving on number to James Harden needs to get into shape. Okay? It's no secret that this man is fat. Okay. I'm not here to body shame. I'm just here to call it. Like it's just that dude is overweight. Like we've seen Draymond play himself in the shape before it's possible you can do it and I'm sure he I'm not questioning James Harden a drive his his you know his desire to win. I think he can do it so that that's a possibility. Okay, it needs to happen though. And the number 3 I mean Kyrie needs to be committed is that such a crazy thing to say who knows where this dude even is right now I mean I just recorded an SBD podcast when I said this dog could be somewhere in the Himalayan Mountains doing a spiritual cleanse Retreat where you don't speak to anyone for a week I don't know what he's doing no one knows okay. He's getting paid to do a job and that job is play for the Brooklyn Nets now it's a job people would kill for and I'm sure Kyrie has his reasons and I'm not here to question them off here to tell you that he better be on the court for this to work all right that's they gave up way too many players or James Harden way too many pics if invested way too much in these young guys and if one of them's missing you can forget about it it's not happening so Kyrie needs to be there Someone is sacrifice and James Harden used to get on a treadmill. Okay, that's how this thing is going to work in Brooklyn or else it ain't happening. All right, that's enough of that. I'm going to get to my father Michael Smith AKA Smitty dog. You can find him on Twitter. He doesn't tweet a lot. But when he does, it's powerful let's talk see. What's up Pops. What's going on Frank going to be with you? Well, it's good to be on the podcast but it's not great to be a Steelers fan. We're going to be breaking down all the situations what's going on in Pittsburgh? What's going on Steelers? But before we get to that I just want to get your general thoughts as someone who's been a Steelers fan since you know, the late 1960s. Yeah, I think whatever the Steelers lose a playoff game. It's you know, Pittsburgh is a a major over-reaction Monday town. And you know, it's it's Defcon its depth on Thursday in Greater Pittsburgh Western Pennsylvania. And you know, we've been there before we've been this a lot of gut-wrenching stomach punch playoff losses, but you know, this this one this one feels a little different because of just how it went down and you know, the the agent quarterback that we have so it's yeah, it's a tough time for the Steelers game. Yeah, I just did a podcast with sports betting dime and we talked a little bit about it and I prefaced it by saying, you know Ben's my guy. We're both graduates of Miami University where huge Steeler fans, you know, that's that's our guy Ben and it's been a great run. I personally think it's time to hang it up and that is one option. So we'll start here. Okay, we'll start with what is been a current situation and this is option. Number one. You can keep been around. Okay, that is an option. He has one year left on his deal. It's a big cap hit it's like forty two or so million dollars is only owed about 9,000 of that. What do you think about that option? Yeah, I mean, I think he's you know, if you let me back up one minute. I agree with you on the you know, we're both Big Ben guys and we both go back to Oxford Ohio. I remember seeing him play on TV in the 2003 GMAC bowl and he absolutely lit up and I told everybody the Steelers should drop this kid and they didn't even know how to pronounce his name. So, you know, I do watch it with you know, I've been a huge Big Bend fan for all of his Seventeen Seasons. But yeah, there there comes a time and I do feel the Steelers are in a in a in a tight situation with then and you know, we're probably, you know, the cap hit that the Steelers are going to take which could be as high as twenty almost twenty-three percent of the salary cab with a lot of other holes to fill in a lot of them guys to sign that's going to be really difficult decision for the Steelers on what time With the next year now, there is a situation and this is option number 2. Okay option. Number two. The Steelers can go to bed and say been it's been a great run. We love you. We've paid you hundreds of millions of dollars. We've showed you we love you dead. But let's end this on good terms. Let's not have a situation where you go play a year in Detroit or something. You know, let's let's not embarrass you by by having to cut you let's bring it up man. Just just call call it a career retire and we can both move on now. What do you think about that option? How possible do you think that option is? Well, I think it's very possible. I mean when you push delete athlean Elite NFL quarterback like Big Ben, it's really it's hard for those guys to hang it up. I mean the Steelers are no stranger to making this type of business decision with every Nike on that, you know is very long in the tooth and is going they don't feel his you know, his productivity and value is really behind them. And then they did it with Franco Harris they did with Rod Woodson dead. they they didn't leave that credit terms on Troy Polamalu the end of his contract and you know hopefully if that is the option then accepts that off you know with class and and you know dignity out the door because I kind of think that's what's going to happen I don't think the Steelers can afford that type of you know cap that they can afford the dead money in the cap next year but not not the cap hit not with the value of the of what Big Bend is you know this the offense even though we had a great start to the year the offense was stagnant predictable and you know been just he can't really move around like his agent counterparts you know Brady and Phil Rivers so it's just watch him run on running running on and off the field it's it's it's kind of hard to watch I wouldn't even call to run it's more of a jog yes There, you know that brings to the third option get a guy who can move around. A rookie Steelers don't have a great pic. But there are five good rookies in this class. There's obviously Trevor Lawrence, you know generational Prospect Justin Fields, Zack Martin Trail aunt's dog Champion Matt Jones. One of those guys could fall too and see those are probably have like, you know, twenty 23rd or 24th pick something like that How likely do you see that? Is that something you want the Steelers to do how possible do you think it is? You know, it's hard to say the Steelers keep, you know so much of those, you know decisions off. So close to the vest. It was a lot of rumors today about, you know, coaching changes not Tomlin but other coaching changes and even Kevin, kolbert our general manager going to the lines of all places, but you know the Steelers, you know, they don't do this a lot. But I think they they're very stubborn in their draft choices. They stick by them, and I have a I have a feeling Going to get this is the option. I feel like they're going to give Mason Rudolph every opportunity and I think that's going to be a mistake because that's not exactly a hot take but I mean there are quarterbacks. I don't know about the kid from Alabama but there's other quarterbacks that I feel they can maybe trade up or draft and see what happens because you know, Mason Rudolph and Josh Dobbs or not the answer we will be definitely not the answer. I think they've taken every opportunity to prove that. I don't know why the Steelers front office would be the last one to realize that but that is option number for you can ride it out with number two. We've seen it play out for an entire year. He got benched for the duck. I mean, it's it's not a good option but it's it does I I have a really really bad feeling that you're going to be right on that wage. Yeah, there's kids out there, you know the kid from BYU and there might be some Diamonds in the Rough that you know, I think you need a today's NFL. I think you need a a Young quarterback. You need a nice big kid like Josh Allen you did a good job. Run around a little bit the offenses have changed. I think you need some Mobility. You know, I'm not sure exactly if I know who's who's in the draft, but they're they're guys in there and may maybe it is that you trade up in the even higher than the second round to get someone like that. And then finally, there's option five which is this is a weird year in the NFL. There's going to be some players moving around or some quarterbacks moving around Matt. Stafford's going to be available. Matt Ryan might be available. I don't think anybody wants Cam Newton, but he's going to be available Steelers are known to make moves like this and DeShaun Watson's definitely available. I mean, he's demanded a trade-off see those don't make moves like this, but could you see this happening? And and do you think would be the right thing for the dealership do You know, I think there's a low percentage but I think it could happen and all the names that you just tossed out there. The only one I think it's worth it is is DeShaun Watson? I don't think we need another agent quarterback. Those guys aren't as old as band but you know, I don't I don't think the Steelers to go after you know a Stafford or uh, Matt Ryan or someone like that. I mean wage you're going to have to give up a heck of a lot for Deshaun Watson. The Steelers don't like tossing number one picks two other teams. So I don't think that's going to be option that happens. I think that the they're going to need a shuttle ride Mason or hopefully do something in the draft. Well, that's pretty much all the options. I have completely exhausted. I think those are the five things dealers can do. I'm with you. I think we're going to ride out Flathead Mason Rudolph for another season. It's going to be really really painful. I don't see how we get to nine wins with him. But I'm going back to you. I know we don't think this is going to happen. But if you had to choose between Matt Ryan and Matt Stafford, who would it be? Well, I Know Who Tommy Texas 27 likes and that's the that's the boy up from the Motor City, but somebody dog 119 @yahoo, you know, I I like I like Matt Ryan more than I like. Or I think Matt Ryan still has some some left in the tank and I think Atlanta is is just a a team that was poorly coached and we're place a good players go to be average. I'm actually with Tommy, Texas on this. I like number nine. I'm not in on his Tannehill take but I am in on Stafford. I like to see him get a chance with actually, you know a competent franchise, but let's let's move it back a little bit. We've gone through the options of what to do with Ben. I can't believe I still can't believe what happened that game I mean just for the first snap of the game what how did that happen I have no idea I mean it was a Head Rush of all head rushes you know at home vs Cleveland and Cleveland wasn't able to practice and they didn't have other coaching staff you have an all pro pro bowl veteran Pouncey I mean it looked like evil Middle School snapping it over you know a quarterback's head I I can't I can't explain that and the way Ben was you know played in that first half life it you know that's just not he looked like instead of Ben Roethlisberger he looked like Billy Kilmer and that's a that's a reference from the from the seventies wage and you can look it up uh no offense Billy but you know he wasn't very good and he was very out of shape looking quarterback and that's what Ben looks like now and I don't think you know his legs and his knees down Thing and it's rebuilt elbow is going to be the value that he's going to command in the next season. If he would have just thrown like one or two pics, maybe there'd be an argument but for and it wasn't like these were tipped balls. I mean right after the snap goes flying over his head. He he throws a like a like a shuffle pass right to a guy a linebacker. There's no excuse for that. It's I can't watch another season that he's so unpredictable been he still does have good games in him. He can have that game right throws for four hundred yards four TDS and no interceptions, but it's just as likely as having four pics at this point. Yeah. Yeah, he's he he's a warrior. He's an all-time Steeler gray and all time. Miami Redskins, right? But you've next year. I don't see how he's going to get through a full season, you know being a statue, you know thirty nine year old girl her back, you know taking some licks and not being able to move around. I don't see the Steelers being above, you know, above 500 or they're in a team next year and if you look for a job On in the in the AFC North with those other quarterbacks, you know, they are they're all averaging about twenty-four twenty-five years old. If you look who's left in a house right now, except for two you have six of eight that are you know, battling for MVP and and Surefire Hall of Famers and you know, Ben is dead but not now not anymore. He was battling for MVP maybe around like week 8 but his campaign went South. What would you give up for Taylor heinicke? What choice of pick? Yeah, I watched him play. I was really really impressed by him. I don't I'm not sure if he was a you know a flash in the pan or what but you know, maybe he's a hard to suck at this point, you know, maybe it's a third-rounder or maybe it's a third and fifth or something like that. I think I think there's it's higher. I think you apply yourself. Yeah. I think he's played himself into like a second-rounder. I think that wage Be able you'd have to give up just slightly more for darnold at this point. Yeah, I'd like to actually like to see Sam darnold in a Steeler uniform. You want to talk about a guy that's got a lot of life left. A lot of play left that's been in a he's been in a dumpster fire over there in you know swamps, New Jersey, so I'll take him. I'll take anybody but Mason Rudolph at this point. All right pops. That's a quick hit. I know you got a you got a dinner to go to where are you right now? I'm actually down in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. I'm on a little Judy and I are a little walkabout and left Pittsburgh end up in in Florida and then back to the burg and about a week and that Smitty dog 119 on Twitter. Correct, or is it just me. Somebody dog? 119. Yeah, that's Twitter is the best place to find you you do fire off some tweets. Yeah, not not a lot of tweets, but there may it's all right boss. Thanks for coming on. All right, right. Thanks a lot and good luck. Go Steelers.

It's not going to be a place but blind because facebook live is too much of the video. Didn't hill hockey does. I'm lucky up to and may want to not do it. Would i completely respect by the other. One will do it because she is dominated by this community nap and so she is fascinated by this community. Now but the next to you guys probably one hundred and then. I'll let danielle after the well all asking this question. Well the next question. You guys are probably wondering. It's how do i get dressed in the morning. How in the world. I mean twenty four hour care. How annual do i. Well i have two. I have two ships of age that commitment help me and it will be today changing a little bit. Because i have. I bet i need to do which they know they know about the cement and all all. It's what is the next time being because what this event is and it's public states in the event for voters oil actually and i'm lucky enough to be invited as so basically what will do it. Died is having some opponent and so when the nets done we. Because i can tell you about that. And it'll be but basically have to shift one one evening and basically and then select the best day. And while i do have house manages a safe. Does that can assist. I do have people in this neighborhood. That kit assist too. So i am from twenty four seven. That's how i'm living independently now. The only reason why getting potentially maya sent back is. Because i need help driving my call and i don't of kobe and i thought about this because of kobe. I really don't wanna take public transportation yet yet. Not say that. I'm scared of getting covered and not to say that. I m scan of getting sick on the bus in Can do public transportation or band of to my day. Paul well but i am primed willie doubt public transportation because which by the way now they have lifted the mask mandate in colorado too and so just because they aim lifted the basket mandate in an adult up. So that's why add guided shelton glaze down here. Even i do now. I do get out. I am kind of because nobody was still doing with. The wall is slowly coming back so and that was my decision to be to get golden jaw to go back back on teen full one week before i left. I was extremely healthy. Before i love and then i i said all being quarantine in and this is where i sat. This is for the first week because his donald out. I was so scared to go out. And i'm in blame. You say i am. I still have a couple money to build to the state. Have the by to be able to. The necessarily drained and i have become full of by months. We'd go as mad. And so i'm been wanting the the week dot i under. I understand so i i ever function. I the only the only reason why i really need a personal assistant is the dynamic capabilities and if push comes to job and then want me to one the potato with powerful tail and i will run out take upsets rotation but it would be picked up at lewis and drive me to about going. It's best join to join when i e e by day on ability swe on. Bill indies Which i have been working on and so it's going to be dawn to dawn service. Somebody because i thought about this when i go down there i thought whoa. How am i going to get on a bus us. Because of where located and because phoenix itself is so healed and because will lose all is located because of the developers daughters isabella. He on all this billy. He did not want her close to a seven eleven to about star close to a host to a. He won her out in middle. Nowhere with makes that's the drawback of living in makes a little bit challenging. And that's the only reason why i protect my personal assistant that so i could have more freedom but i happy in quantity. I have happy ending outside. I happy i am happy. Seen i have seen more people by zil. And it's risen a new on display. That i ever saw in aspen and finally asked was the blessing cold and nafta so i am having in the heat and day at i doing.

Steelers Burning Question: Will Antonio Brown ever play in the NFL again?

Behind the Steel Curtain

Steelers Burning Question: Will Antonio Brown ever play in the NFL again?

"Pittsburgh steeler fans. Let's go on this is Jeff Harmon editor behind the steel curtain dot com with another episode of the steelers burning question yeah that's right during the season. This is kind of turned into our last ditch pre-game podcast for the behind the curtain dot Com podcasting network. We have been rotating the duties duties. It is my turn this week as a steelers prepare for the San Francisco Forty niners week three in Santa Clara California and next week. You'll have Lance Williams on the steelers Bernie question question and I gotta be honest if you looked at the title of this podcast if you saw the title of this show you should know anything about me. Hey it's I didn't want to talk about this. this is something that Lance Williams who I don't know if he's listening it or not he sent me a Texas mornings at you've got to do this podcast casts he said I know you're not going to talk the entire podcast about it but you've got to headline this podcast with just what it is will in Tonio Brown ever ever play football the national football league again. That is the burning question this week and like. I said that's all Lance Williams for me. This is tough not only he does not want to talk about Antonio Brown but there's a lot of layers to this story. I don't it's tough to say what's going. GonNa Happen to him. Based on the fact that right now he's currently unemployed and so a lot of people are saying you know hey what the wisely in the exempt list in. Why does he find or is he gets suspended but they can't because he's currently unemployed and so this is. GonNa really play a role in the his availability this season so so in other words if an NFL team. Let's just say the Washington redskins and I have no inside information here. I say that this is is just a name. I just drew out of the hat and it's it's team that I could see taking the risk busy to Washington. Redskins say you know what we're GONNA sign in Tony Brown now once they sign him to a contract the NFL and then step in and the commissioner can say you're on the exempt list. You will get paid but you're not going to be able to dress your documented. Play flay are good a practice not going to be at the facility until we get your off the field stuff straight. This is why personally. I don't think I think anyone who's GonNa sign him until the off. The field stuff gets straight period I just don't think that you know any any team is willing to pay him any amount of money to not be able to play. I think it's a foregone conclusion that whatever he does sign that he will go on the exempt blessed in that he will be forced to sit out until all the transgressions that are now being filed against him and they're all accusations at this point until they're all dissolved and figured out in in whatever have you right now you're entering week three of the NFL week three the NFL regular season and there's a lot of people that suggested I agree with them that right now unless you have a ton of injuries at wide receiver. Do you really want to bring in someone someone like this. Do you really want to bring someone that could be not only a hazard in terms of their availability but also hazards the way that they handle things I did find it interesting and I predicted this that when he signed with the New England patriots if you check out his twitter feed he re tweeted the Patriots won. The Patriots said that they officially signed him and then he didn't read anything until he was actually released so everyone said that there's no way he do. It looks like he kind of did in terms of staying social media the problem is is that he was unable to stay out of the public and the public scrutiny you have to ask yourself will he follow the path of say a Dez Bryant who once they kind of out there and they're always going to be talked about. You know it's just do you want to bring in that type of player. He's thirty one years old. He's definitely someone someone who is talented but with that comes a lot of baggage a lot of baggage and let me just say here for a moment that I absolutely want to give props to my Tomlin because Mike Tomlin. You know you know that he's dealt with this stuff for a long time with Antonio Brown. This wasn't just a Oh Antonio Brown's acting fool the last year that he's in Pittsburgh Neneh. He's been a fool for a long time in Pittsburgh and Mike Tomlin was able to manage it. I'm not saying he was able to fix it. I'm not saying he was able to curate rid of all his ills. He was basically able to manage. It and I think that deserves some credit because there's a lot of coaches one in Oakland. That couldn't manage it so I think that is pretty incredible to give my Tom. I think it's pretty easy to do to give my Tomlin in a little bit of credit in this situation so you know what he's dealt with this guy for a long time and he at least can things interlocking key whether they knew about this stuff. We'll probably never know unless it goes to court and then we deal with all that stuff but other than that. I think it's an issue a situation where I can. I'm trying to think to myself and those are watching live in the live chat if you've tried to remember if anyone has had such a fall from grace before in in the National Football League we're talking about a guy that was on the path to hall of fame career in the last five years he had had set numbers as a wide receiver that had never been seen before not Jerry Rice Tijuana's prime no one and his trajectory trajectory was still going up even though he was on the wrong side of thirty and now this endorsement deals gone when you see Pizza Hut commercials. Who Do you see easy Juju Smith Schuster when you see Madden geico commercials. Who Do you see you see Juju Smith Schuster I could go on but Nike officially dropped Antony around his now whereas Adidas is Adidas Oakley or clinging to Juju Smith Schuster with with every ounce that they can because he is a budding star in the National Football League on and off the field. This has been a very precipitous fall for Antonio. Brown and I'm interested to see how he handles it how his agent drew Rosenhaus Sandals. I had this sinking feeling there. They were see him on television soon. Just not saying I'm looking forward to it not saying it's going to be must watch TV. I just have this feeling that Antonio Brown due to his agent drew Rosenhaus is going to he's going to get in front of a camera just like he did on his way he added. Pittsburgh and he's GonNa try and give his side of the story. That's that's what I am predicting. I don't think that a work but at the same time that is what I think will happen as they try to try to patch up his image because right now hello everyone that's out there terms of NFL teams that are potentially thinking about this. The one thing they have to think about is if the Patriots can't get it straight him straight. How can anyone else. The team always boasts about the Patriot way. He's air quotes there. If you're listening to podcasts this form the Patriot way that's going to straighten out everybody every single crooked error that ever comes to New England is going to be on the straight and narrow if New England can't do it. They're going to say who get it will be interesting to see how it happens but to answer the burning question to to answer the burning questions we'll answer your brown ever played football and the NFL again obviously depends on how these accusations pan out in in terms of criminal sentence involved is he considered to be expunged from all charges or expunged from all accusations mm-hmm if let's assume that everything is expunged for and he's not charged with anything absolutely he plays in the NFL again absolutely Atlanta said on this show a million times trump talent trumps. Everything talent trumps. Everything is the reason. The steelers put up with him for as long as they did. It's the reason why the Patriots went after him after he acted like a full in Oakland to get out of there. It's the reason why the Oakland Raiders traded two draft picks to get it from Pittsburgh when he acted like a fool to get out of there so yes there will be a football team if giant if here if he is expunged of everything then absolutely there will be a team for France around somewhere out there guarantee it no doubt about it. It's just the way it is so. If you want to chime in you can I don't want to spend a lot of time on this. I like the steelers burning question to kind of be like your primer leading up to the game because yeah some of you that are watching live on Youtube. He didn't know he had a YouTube Channel YouTube dot com Sir Speedy Esi steelers radio subscribe and make sure that you turner notifications Asia's onto the you know every single time we go live. Hey I'm Spencer Hall. I'm Holly Anderson. I'm Ryan Nanny Jason Kirk and we're the host of the shutdown full cast. Ask Your avengers of college football podcast it says in the script onto riff on what that means and basically what I mean is this all every Tuesday. We talk about everything from cooking disasters astor's to pro wrestling too unfashionable pants worn middle school. We also do talk about college football every now and then like mascot fights announcers fleeing the booth early a an unfashionable pants that coaches where now if you want to take college football exactly as seriously as it should be taken subscribe for free on Apple Podcasts or Oren your favorite podcast APP. I leave this become like your primary getting ready for the game. You know like asking those questions that you want to know. One of the steelers going to do you in this scenario and what's your prediction and all that that's what I wanted this show to be but we had to talk very attorney brand a little bit so there you have it before we get into the questions and acuity a aspect of this show we had someone asked the question about our We're giving away tickets to the Monday night game a week four against the Cincinnati Eddie Bengals at Heinz field. Yes we're giving away tickets for free for free folks yes. I you don't do anything except for good behind a steel curtain dot com. I will bump this article. Go off or days. Go field. He's in the live. Chat will bump it up so that it's up there as of now and you have to go into the article and get all the details about you know everything needed. What's your you're going to have to email. Dave scofield a slogan for a t shirt now. This slogan can me anything except they can't say steelers. It can't have the HYPO- cyclades altogether it can't have any first and last names of players because they're all trademark trademark copyrighted and licensed by the National Football League so if you can think of a really good slogan you might find your way into the finals now in the finals. What you're doing doing is myself and Brian. Anthony Davis will get a list which I think is a last. I heard Dave was well over a hundred slogans were entered and he just put up with this on the screen his email address in case you wanNA send it over. One hundred slogans have already been sent to him so we myself myself and Brian. ANC IS GONNA leave through all of these and pick out our five favorites put them on behind the curtain dot com they will be voted upon the person with the not one entry per person the person with the winning entry win the tickets and see their slogan be put on a t-shirt now. There's little caveat there one of them being that the steelers the company that I use they have to approve the slogans if there's something that they say is not kosher whatever for whatever reason then they might not be able to make the t shirt but also if you do if you put it in a slogan then behind the steel curtain then has the opportunity to utilize on any T. shirt so you might not have one. Let's say the second place one and we really liked it. We turn that into a t-shirt to and just so you you know that once you enter that you're giving us the okay the all clear to do that and not have any type of occasions for that so there you have it free tickets to the Monday night primetime game at Heinz Field against the Cincinnati Bengals in week four. Make sure you check those out. Make sure you check this out. Okay Question Meantime steelers time Memory Antonio Brown talk. I want to know what you think about the game coming up. Let me know by firing where your questions in the live chat show answer as many as I can for as long as I can remember if you're using the super chat feature which you can you don't have to wherever you comment right next to his little dollar sign you click on the dollar sign you any amount of money and we appreciate it highlight that question or be sure to be answered. This is the time that if you want to donate money to do so and and this is the time always in every show wait because I know Lee last week after the game we were in the post game. If people were firing live chats we just didn't have time trying to get through throw the stats and stuff so here we go question from Kevin. Do you agree with lands moving on from Ben. If Mason balls out here's the one sticking point to this in that is if let's say Mason Rudolph gets the steelers to ten and six nine and seven they make AAC the playoffs. He's playing well. I mean well enough to win that many games. I don't care what they do in the postseason if they make the Playoffs Hal and two thou- twenty twenty do you say okay Mason. You did a great job. You battled back from Owen to Owen three. Whatever the case as may be how do you how do you go back to Ben Rothlisberger. I understand that he has a history. I understand that he has holiday inn credentials. I I understand that he's the last remaining player from either of the Super Bowl teams. However how do you go back to bed at that time as a coach. I don't don't know how you would because here. You have this young player. You can build the team around clearly seen success. It'll be interesting as they said on the steelers preview when ask them this is Brian Anthony Davis Day Scofield. It's a good problem to have but at the same time I kind of agree with Land said earlier today and that was maybe he just maybe Mason Rudolph can play well enough to Ben. Rothlisberger says you know what I don't need this anymore. NC retires not that I want that to happen because I am a huge Ben Rothlisberger fans. You can ask Lance. It's the only Jersey I own or Ben Rothlisberger Jerseys. I've been a fan of his two thousand four actually the earlier than that. I watched him to Miami of Ohio. I don't know it's one of those things so that's my answer long long way around rob asks. Why is James Washington Washington not starting. I bet he will be starting on Sunday. he and Deontay Johnson will probably get the nod opposite of Juju Smith Schuster depending on the the package that they're running at that particular time but at the same time they've also told Dante mockery snaps will be limited so there you go Dallas Asks Will Benz Pride Make in return even if he isn't healthy. I mean everything that you've here is says that he absolutely is going to try to come back but again who knows what who knows what the offseason is going to be like for him and his offseason started now. He's GonNa have to Rehab. He's GonNa be thirty eight years old. He has three young kids. Maybe just maybe steelers quarterback and I mean Ben Rothlisberger says I've been golfing. All the time we go on vacations. I made meter little miss it. I'll give you a example. I coached. I coached Lacrosse coach. I coach head Varsity Lacrosse coach men's Lacrosse and the state of Maryland very competitive additive and I coached for thirteen years and I remember stepping down it was tough and is because my wife just had her fourth child. We have we have five now now and I remember people asking me and they still do this do you. Miss Coaching has not really it's a lot of time is a lot of work. DOC is a lot of time away and maybe then Jesse's does that answer. We'll see that's down the road for sure. Dave reminds everyone for the slogans and the contest mm that no profanity in the slogan those obviously not be able to be put on a t-shirt dries just grateful that Dan did for the team always. I am not saying that he's not. I said I am by far a huge. I am one of the biggest Ben Rothlisberger fans. You'll meet but at the same time you have to understand that sometimes it's time to it's time to move on. It's just as Tom. Petty and the heartbreakers says Donna move on. It's time to get going. Snowman gets five dollars puts it in a tip jar. We appreciate that Snow Manny's and he's a longtime listener of the show. He says you cloud nine yet. Censure boys new starter. I am excited. I am excited and I think everyone should be excited. It's the excitement of the unknown own. It's excitement of the unknown it's it's. You just don't know what you're GONNA get We know what we're getting with. Ben Rothlisberger. We know that Ben Rothlisberger is one one of the greatest of all time in terms of the steelers but it's one of those situations where I I just think that this this team in this fan base need to spark in. Maybe just have it in Mason in make fingers crossed. Let's Evans says. How long do you think it take for. The talking heads to give the steelers Mason credit credit if he has access the season I think it depends on the talking has referring to so there are certain people that just hate the steelers for whatever reason I don't never give them credit but at the same time I think that if if anyone's going to get credit and that's like people ask about my Tom's future team of Mike Tomlin can get this team to the playoffs with Mason Rudolph. How do you not give the Guy Credit. I you could be the the biggest Mike Tomlin hater out there. How can you criticize him if he's able to take a team without his star quarterback in get them to the playoffs with a backup backup. Keep that in mind now they fold like achieve lawn chair in Finnish four and twelve. That's a different story but if they are successful you gotta give Tomlinson some credit along with Mason Rudolph Dallas. What is our weakest position at this point. It's easy. It's tight end. It's absolutely the tight end position. You got and get mega. Fitzpatrick safeties safeties no longer a weakness their debt. Maybe a weakness because Cam Kelly is hardly a starter in the NFL but at the same time I absolutely think Titan would be the the weakest rebel says we'll edmonds be strong safeties Patrick starting free safety yes and yes those are two positions designated positions here Alexa says how come the steelers good offense players always leave well in the modern free agency agency era. It is difficult to keep all your players just the way that it is. There's dynasties of the one thousand nine hundred seventy steelers don't exist anymore because there's a salary lary cap and there's free agency and players are going to go where they have. The most you know the most money available to them ready readily available so it's difficult people look at the Patriots Dynasty. The Patriots have a lot of turnover. They're just able to constantly with them into the right places exceed you look back at all the Patriots success they've I've had since Tom. Brady used in the quarterback and you've got you know Troy Brown. You've got Dion branch flexible. Mvp a you had the randy. Moss area had the West welker era. It's hardly the same cast of characters that are there. They are so good at getting these players and getting them acclimated quickly so that's probably why I mean this fuels. Try to keep as many good players as they can do a good job with it but sometimes players Dewey. That's just the nature of the beast right. Ryan says who have the most receiving ars in the most rushing yards emerson doing. You're talking about tomorrow's game in San Francisco. I will say the receiving yards. I'm GONNA give that one to Juju Smith Schuster. I think they're gonNA find a way to get him him open and getting the ball early rushing yards. I'll go with James Connor. I think he has announced that game as long as he as long as he he is healthy. Keep that in mind crease says. Do you think we will get a running game going. It seems like they have given up on weights really the first game I get it. You're down owned by more than the touchdown in the blink of an eye and so you have to most coaches will do the same thing they're thinking. They have to throw it to get back into the game the week to a different story the steelers lead early on in the game and it was tied for the majority of the first half. There's no reason they should have gotten away from the Ron then again when Ben Rothlisberger in there. They don't like to run the ball often. Keep that in mind. I expect them to be more committed to the run. I strengthened the US more offensive personnel L. groupings to maximize run game and so I think that's something to look out for this upcoming Sunday. Dave says it sounds like Jeff Hates Big Ben more than I hate the Auntie Johnson on wh I don't hate big. Ben Guys I mean I don't know where he's Joe. I know he's joking around. I knew Dave but I don't understand where people are saying that. I Hate Big Ben. Ask Lance Lance Williams if I hate big Ben and he will be the first to tell you that I do not hate big bed all right here. You're Jaren asked you think he's the defense. According to the end of the season something really really bad would have to happen for him not to be the odd defensive coordinator at the end of the season so I'm thinking that he will be will only be next year as a whole bag orange right there. Dallas says will fitzpatrick meaning Minka Fitzpatrick make an impact like Troy Paula Malu this is this is actually something. My wife asked me here today when she was saying that he's this new guy that the steelers guide and I was explaining how he's very athletic. He's great safety if he said do this troy and I said I said Troy was a generational talent. I mean literally. You're not going to fine other troy. Will he be an impact player Troy. I personally believe that he he can but I don't want anyone going into a game thinking that make if it's Patrick Eric or Terrell admins or whomever you're looking at I just don't understand you don't you don't compare them. Just don't just don't because honestly again. Paul was a generational talent in my opinion in my life. There will never be anything like troy palmolive ever seen ever. I was watching some of the highlights just the other day and you forget how freakishly awesome he was his closing speed on the run game his ability to read the quarterback to guess into guess correctly more than he guessed incorrectly tremendous absolutely tremendous all right so Solomon says what's your perception of the new receiving core. I'm assuming that you were talking about the fact that Deonte Johnson James Washington and juice machines are are most likely your top three with Switzer and or moncrieff being sprinkled in when necessary if necessary and I'm excited. I'm excited for this guy's too. I I really am excited for Mason Rudolph for obvious reasons. If you listen to the show you know that I've always been a fan of the the selection that they made during the two thousand eighteen draft but I'm excited to see with these young guys can do. I think the James Washington in in Mason Rudolph heavy clear connection and it would be stupid not to play them Deontay Johnson at least i. I said this after week one. He jumps off screen he he jumps off the str office scream when you watch it. He's he's ridiculously. Slippery reauthorized scrimmage. He is a great release I think there's there trending in direction. They should go training in the direction. They should go uh-huh Lance Williams mhm signing in and says he might have tickets for the game. You might be going if that's the case man. Enjoy it enjoy it. Cuny you can see them while you can. If that's the the case out cover the post game or I'll get someone to join me. Don't worry about that right. See here. See we have else going on here. Raymond can still still thinks I'm a big Ben Hater. That's fine and so does all right. This is funny. I love this. Do you think this is from Lewis. Do you think the defense is finally on track to get better as the coaching hopeless I do think the coaching is pretty hopeless but at the same time I do think that this defense it is point in time they have ten players that were drafted in the top ten of their respective draft classes. I I think that's the number. Dave correct me if I'm wrong if you're in the live chat still I just think it's one of those situations my gosh if they can't do it now they never will and that's that's why I think this is the last straw for Keith Butler something that Lance talked about before on his show that he doesn't have a crutch anymore. He's at Devon Bush. He's got T. J. Watt. He's got advising Mega Fitzpatrick in the back end now the great pickup so far and Steven Nelson Joe Haden Corner. He's got studs along the defensive front. If you can't put it all together now you you never will so. That's what I think about that. This is interesting dent. Denver says anyone else afforded the renewal. The Rudolf Mayfield rivalry. That's that's going to be interesting and this is an article. I wrote right after Rudolph is drafted high was criticized up and down behind the steel curtain comments section for writing. The article article in the article was that after that draft class where Lamar Jackson went to Baltimore Baker Mayfield when I over all the Cleveland and Mason Rudolph went to Pittsburgh I said is this the ushering in of the new crop of quarterbacks in the AFC north now. Andy don't miss still just kind of hanging around but did the browns finally find their Guy Joe flacco Gondomar Jackson's in now. Ben Rothlisberger is at least gone for this season it Mason Rudolph what is this the new era of AFC north quarterback in what does that kind of play look like you know what I mean. I've watched the browns for the majority of I've watched them a good Bitney. It needs I two weeks. They still finding their identity on offense but at the same time I guess what is this going to look like is this. AFC north of bugging change at all you know with the Baltimore Ravens running running. This crazy run pass options. RPA's they calm. It's GonNa be really interesting to see how that works and how it looks just across the board so that that rivalry is going to be a good one. Obviously it's Oklahoma Oklahoma state so Lucas great question having much out of Cameron Heyward in the first two games any worries. I'm not worried because I'm pretty sure that he's getting double teamed a lot and I think that it's one of those situations where someone else has to get home last week. In the first half it was steph onto it. They were putting attention on camera hayward in Steph onto. It was getting help. Someone else is going to have to step up and maybe aby with Steph onto having a to half that game against the seahawks that equates to hey. We're getting more one on ones which I think that he will obviously win. the king asks will feature. Randy female defensive coordinator worked better with Mason or Ben. I don't know because no one knows what to expect from these guys guys but if you take the second half of last game as the tiniest of sample size is you have to think that feet northern Mason Rudolph will be just fine that they'll be able to kind of coexist so I I think if you're looking at that sample size and I know it's tiny it's minute but still there is a possibility that those exist well creases. Do you think they will double washing because because his connection with Mason I hope they do. I really hope they do because that means. Juju Smith Schuster will be getting one on one and he'll win that more often than not the one thing to note what is that Richard Sherman typically does not follow receivers and he is on the forty niners so he typically just stays on his side and if you're trying to avoid the Jews you Richard Sherman match natch of keeping on the other side or keeping the slot. The steelers have been doing a lot of that so far. It's it's an interesting situation there that they'll have to look at and try to maximize their match watch ups from the receiver core to obviously the other sear rate hello listener. I'm Sean Rama's firm host of today explained Vox Daily News podcast every day Monday through Friday my team and I look at what's happening. In the world. We pick one essential news news story that defines our moment and asks smart people to help us understand it in about twenty minutes or less. It's the perfect way to start or end. Your Day subscribed today explained for free on apple podcasts or in your favorite podcast APP. It's from stitcher and the VOX media podcast network right either. You're talking about the Patriots. Someone's that's where the Patriots give me a break to steal a show hero. Dallas is the steelers beat the forty niners will rudolf get his due respect or overlooked it depends on how they win and if he if he has this dramatic game or dramatic comeback he'll get plenty of credit but at the same time they they run the ball well he makes mistakes and the defense as the day bill say so work in progress so it just depends on how it goes down Let's see here trying to catch up a little bit behind. I Apologize Thomas acid the AFC north quarterbacks. which would you choose to leave your team for me? I've I the day Scofield can attest to this ever since steelers drafted may some. I've really liked him. Lamar Jackson scares me because of his as ability stay healthy that he has thrown on the ball better so far in two thousand nineteen but he's run the ball that much that rg three actor still scares me. I would be hesitant for their Baker Mayfield. I've never really bought into you. I think he's more hype than he is. Hope the great white hope but still I think it's one of those situations where I but still i. I got to think that he's still was Mason Rudolph his by guy so he's been my guy since they drafted him. So there you go all right. Let's see here. My Gosh Land says we finally put them respect on Calfo by their road win over Ole. All miss get out of here. No one cares about college football all right W. H. says gee think we the steelers will jettison already burns and grave digger. This year traded line if if we aren't doing well both of them are gone anyways. Here's the thing for me I look at Sean Davis Being Injured in and see that he has gone he's gone. He's not going to be back and so because of that. I think that they're going to actually have the opportunity to sign J von Hargrave. I'm also going to assume the BUD depre- is probably gone and this is where it gets tricky because Anthony Chick lows dealing with plantar fasciitis. She Avis is not playing. This Sunday. Gets is Aladdin Yeay. If Aladdin you can play well he could potentially show that budget breeze expendable visit visit all then give them more money to go at Hargrave to keep him there so keep that in mind here too so I had to try to find days. He said here it is. Isaac gave five bucks in the appreciates. Chevy fourteen chances. Get Your Mason Jersey for me best of Luck Isaac. I can't remember what that was. I think what does it. TV Eighty wins a game. I think there was that what was I'm pretty sure if he wins a game so yeah there you go. Nathan asked already says a team option know Oh ardy. He'd is an art not Nathan he that sealers declined that option that was before the season started therefore after this season in twenty twenty he will be an unrestricted restricted free agents. They do not have a team option anymore. The next team option will be obviously with TJ white which they will be taking up. Trust Me Okay Dallas. WHO's The scariest team coming up on the schedule. It's I don't know for for me. San Francisco because of where they're playing kind of scares me a little bit but at the same time I think this is a winnable game for me. I personally think that the Baltimore Ravens of the scariest game coming up and that's just because they've been so dominant in the first two games I understand stand that they've essentially played the equivalent of high school. JV team two weeks in a row but still they taking care of business. You do what you're supposed to do against teams that you should beat and so they've done that so I would have to say to the Baltimore because I think their defense is still pretty good. They do have some missing pieces every their offense is dynamic answer and so. I think it'll be that that's probably the gain that scares me. The most is said yeah wins the Game Isaac. Let's hope that on on tomorrow night Sunday night that we're we're talking about sizes and ordering addresses. That's what that's what I'm hoping for all right so dylan says Kobe is going to be wishing that he didn't give that first to Miami when they pick fourth overall hide. I just don't see it happening. I I don't I think this team has too much talent to completely fall flat on their face. As for an entire season especially in the second half of the schedule gets pretty soft so yeah team can be ticked off about the about the the pick but ultimately we'll see. How many times have we played in San Francisco since one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. I know we have one there Jason. I'm trying to think over. There's obviously the game candlestick where the lights went out. That was Monday. Football ben had an ankle injury. I'm trying to think if if they've played there since they they they would have had to but I just can't think of anyone else from members shoot in the live chat. Let us know I know they had to play it. Last night. He played Adam was at home that was it. Heinz field so here we go since he and the chargers okay. I'll tell you what guys this has been a good show for and we'll do one more question just fired in their big aide says how are we going to fix the middle of the defense. I think that the fix is there. It's in Devon Bush. He just he just has to learn. He just has to learn so it's one of those situations where it's going to take some time and then we said this since day one he might play but that doesn't mean that he's going to play and be this. God's end from the moment he steps on the football field very very few rookies at any position do that not saying it hasn't happened but very few do so for me. I think the answer is there and and I think that it's GonNa take some time. Just GonNa take some time so keep that in the back of your mind here Daniel ask any status of how many slogans for ticket entries as if I know that it's been over one hundred. I know that it's been over one hundred that was early. Doubt Dave is just chiming in over one hundred twenty me entry so far. That's awesome. Why wouldn't you think of a cool clever slogan for a t shirt to get free tickets to a game. I just remember he had to you had to go to the game. Period have to be able to go to the game. Don't put in a slogan. If you WANNA put it in a slogan just for fun. You can just make sure you make that clean email today. That's important okay. Thank you for listening to this. Show the steelers burning question. We appreciate it next week. We'll be Lance Williams. Turn we switched. He was supposed to tonight hours to be next weekend. I'm going to be the ad town for a golf tournament begin because the steelers play on Monday night therefore it's all on lands Williams next week for the Bernie question but make sure you check at least knee out tomorrow night Sunday night after the game for the steelers postgame show maybe lance will be with me. Maybe Lance won't either way we will rehash the game that was and then we have everything broken down for you throughout the week dealers hangover with Tony and Brian on Monday night the Tuesday shows steelers tacky standard is a standard on Wednesday. The the steelers preview on Thursday and Friday is the said Atlanta show. If you haven't checked any of these shows out make sure you do they're all live on youtube and they're all also on our youtube channel to dot com slash behind the steel curtain. It make sure you check us out on all our our podcast platforms anywhere we get your podcast. All you have to do is say steel curtain search behind the curtain search steelers were there if he listened on I tunes give us a five star rating Anna comment because because it helps boost our search ability so we want to get expand the show more people listening so if you go on obviously go win in give us a five star rating gives us a review. We really appreciate it. I don't want to end this without snowman getting his two dollar tip. Read will the line step up. I think they will. I think this is a game that you might right see them. Just drive in the sled in that is running all over San Francisco moving the move from the pile and that's why I predicted the steelers win this game I think as the final score chorus thirty to twenty eight steelers went on Chris Boswell field goal at the end of regulation. They go folks hope. You enjoyed the steelers burning question. We will see you tomorrow tomorrow night after the game hopefully for the steelers. I win enjoyed everybody we'll see.

Episode 143: What if concrete didn't exist?

"It food for was what if we had nine lives blooded pits ups or if money grew on trees they've redid happy baby back then absurd absurd medical everybody end. Welcome to absurd hypotheticals. The show we over think dumb questions. So you don't have to. I'm your host. Marcus lehner and i'm joined here today by chris. Ye and ben storms. Say hi guys. Hey i'm chris. Hey i'm ben guys. We're actually going to do something. That's a little bit in some of our actual expertise is here not mine not yours. Because i don't even remember what your expertise has been paramount either so computers but no i think is what i what i recall but our question today is about concrete and specifically what if concrete didn't exist and chris since you are the actual factual licensed civil engineer. Tell us a little bit about what concrete is. I am actual an factual true. So the common misconception that a lot of people think is that cement is the same thing as copy but it's not so cement is like a part of concrete. Concrete is actually a mixture of cement and aggregates which are like small rock. Sir it can be other thanks to you but it usually rocks so we're just saying that concrete is the cement and the rocks mixed together. But i think in our scenario where still saying that cement still exists. They just never mix them together breath. So i'll go ahead and start with my answer here. And kind of where i started off with when i was thinking is okay. I know lots and lots of buildings have confrontations of course concrete all of the the concrete. We use it for bridges for our buildings for our houses. Yada yada yada. And as i was listening to things that break out i was like maybe it's festival is the things that don't break and then couldn't find many of them like i was. I was reading this like down the rabbit halls reading about houses with pressure treated wood. Foundations only couldn't use it because the guy who kept writing. It really annoyed because he kept talking about how we concrete was if it wasn't reinforced which with mice and laundering background. I know you have to put the steel in the concrete it's a two-part system to have any strength. And he kept saying concrete sucks and it drove me batty so i was like it was the one the anger is. I've been reading an article for like the silliest reason but deny the guy's background as an engineer no he was the reason he was looking to do a different foundation for his house was because he wanted to be friendly and not use concrete because of the environmental impact. Which you know damage is done. Medusa your there's enough there's more concrete out there than like anything. It's so rather than list out the four mud huts. That would survive. I decided to look at slightly different area. Because we're saying the concrete disappears. And i want to look at that moment of when the concrete disappears. What is what does that look like. Because now you have all these buildings that suddenly don't have a bottom and they're all going to fall. The bottom is important. The bottom is important for the billy. Billings are not going to be in good shape after this thompson important. The bottoms important important. It gets very without a top. That's true so i was going to see it. All these buildings falling down the impact actually create new problems so this is almost a little bit similar to like the the typical the the classic. What if questions. What if everyone in the world jumped up all at one time it landed like what would that do would that create giant something. It moved the earth. The answer's always no not really. Because as you may know the earth is very big technically does technically yes. The earth moves minute amount which is a fancy way of saying. It doesn't move. It doesn't move any more than it already. Randomly moves as it wiggles its orbit but the four situation across the globe is a bit tricky and also even. If you're doing buildings ends up being pretty much irrelevant. So it's really the local effects that are going to matter a lot more and be more interesting like not the whole whole world. The whole isn't gonna be affected but there's gonna be some places where there's lots of buildings that are going to be hit harder so let's look where we can expect one of the most dramatic impacts new york city. So what i spent my last few days doing was looking through building data and had lots of fun doing it. There's lots and lots of people on the internet competing to tell me exactly how many how tall the buildings are on average or how many of them there are. And all that so actually. There's actually a really cool database available that has literally just every building in manhattan mapped out like the height the footprint on three digital map. It's pretty awesome. You can go around it. it's very fun. So the average height of a building in new york city. And i'm taking new york city manhattan that the the main island is about sixty feet which doesn't sound like much fortify floors even in manhattan like the very very downtown has a bunch of skyscrapers but most of the areas and most of the blocks have just you know normal. Four to eight storey buildings. Four to five for an average is quite high and there are over a million buildings in manhattan one million sixty six thousand three hundred fifty four so i got those and now i have to figure out how much those buildings way which was tricky. 'cause i didn't have the square footage for all the buildings so basically what i did from there was i took the land area of manhattan about twenty point eight square miles and through some very stringent eyeballing. Scrolling said. can't be more than thirty five percent covered in these buildings. Very scientific very scientific eyeball in here. I was thinking might be like fifty percent but you do have the you have the streets the roads and there's actually lots of courtyards in the middle of the city blocks so it's not like so as dense as you might expect so thirty percent covered in buildings so it's gonna be rough square footage of the buildings themselves and i can take that and turn it into a weight. Typically a large building Like three plus stories has weighs about three hundred fifty pounds per square foot of living area. So this gets us to three hundred fifty billion pounds of building now suspended above their non existent foundations to put it in a little bit of perspective. This is approximately half the weight of all the people on earth is the way the building's manhattan next question becomes how far are they gonna follow. How deep are the foundations for buildings. Four typical building. There's about one basement floor for every floor of building every four floors of building. above it. Interesting you know. I find it interesting. This is my civil engineering knowledge coming in but if you have a area where the foundation sucks like you know. You're building on a bunch of clay or dirt. That isn't like an awful lot of structural support. Basically the weight of four stories above replaces the weight of the soil that you're removed to dig the one story of foundation so basically if you have a four story building with one story basement it doesn't change what the soil at the bottom like is feeling so you're building is therefore covered safe fun engineering fact there but anyway basically we have four or five floors on average. We have roughly one point. Three floors of basement gives us a fall. Distance of about fifteen point. Six feet is what i used so now we know how much weight we have. We know how far it's falling. We can calculate the potential energy of our buildings to see how big the impact force is going to be so multiplying it out altogether. These buildings will hit the ground with a combined. Five point force. Equal to five point eight kilotonnes of tnt. This is a big number. It's actually slightly reasonable This is on par with some nuclear weapons The hiroshima bomb was eighteen kilotonnes. So the small side of nuclear weapons. So it's gonna do some damage but of course the number i was most interested in is. What's the earthquake gonna look like from this. So the five point eight killed on of tnt is the equivalent of a magnitude five point five earthquake which is not a good one. It's not the worst one but is not a good one and that's pretty much it. There's going to be an earthquake in manhattan. It's going to be a five point. Five and the real problem is going to be. You know that didn't want in. The buildings is going to be crushed by building not so much the earthquake and everywhere else and everywhere else. Yeah it's going to be bad. It's just like everything is really really bad. And i'm just going to zoom in on this one little bit because that's what's fun for me. Yeah well that's where we'll probably be the worst either there or like tokyo. It was kind of interesting like the they study of. Cities have the highest average building height and manhattan was like new york. City was like in third and boston was above it but lost and santa fe. Santa fe boston. Where were we're higher like boston. I'm like that doesn't count. Because they counted like just like the little downtown area. They're not fair. Yeah they had like eighty thousand like billions on compared to a million so it was like you know hundreds of the size weirdly if you only count the small part of boston. That has all the tall buildings higher average of tall buildings. I don't get it doesn't make any sense to me. G by has the highest average. If you only count the burj kalifa crazy. yeah i'm just. I'm just like mad about statistics imported about places that is my life anyway. chris what did you look into so look at the history of concrete. 'cause i can actually sorta interpreted this question a little differently than you. I didn't i didn't assume that all the concrete disappears overnight. I assume that it never existed in the first place so like in the past people just never created concrete. And that's kind of why. I made the distinction between concrete and cement because in my scenario they do still they can still use cement just not concrete by one define like the earliest instance of people using concrete and like try to like see how that affects the future like at all the time going forward after that point so i went way back into the past and apparently the earliest account is really far in the past. It's sixty five hundred bc. Oh yeah the nabet. Traders which are like an ancient tribe in northern arabia. Currently they had concrete floors that housing structures are concrete and they had undergone sister and several concrete storing water in the desert and all the articles. I said saw said that those concrete but they weren't really specific about like the details of the concrete. So i tried to look into it more and what i found is that they basically said it was like crush limestone like mixed with water and stuff and to make like a cement issues material. And as i pointed out you need aggregates in there So i think technically this isn't actually concrete. They've just people keep on saying concrete for some reason instead of men rocket ragging on the sixty five hundred bc because oh it actually it's cement dot com. Yeah advanced and even if it is concrete. If i'm wrong about this and they did include aggregates and stuff. It was really a limited use of the concrete. It's not like a widespread use. That doesn't have that big of an impact on like future civilized or anything so to find something a little more impactful so i went forward in time a lot to three thousand bc to egypt so the pyramids in egypt. There's debate going on about what the blocks are actually made of. Some people say that they're made of concrete so there's a hypothesis that the blocks are limestone concrete mixture so has limestone cement tissues material on then there as aggregates in there is what people are saying but this theory is not widely accepted. The more widely accepted theory is that is just full. Limestone blocks that were cut out from a corey nearby and they like stack them Put like morton between two to stick them together. And i guess you could technically maybe call them mortar concrete. Because they had other stuff in there as well but it's a little questionable and i don't think it's clear cut enough to say that this was also the first instance of concrete and i think it's it's also not widespread enough for what i'm looking for. It's like only like if this never never existed back then than two pyramids didn't exist but lake whether the pure mystery sit there do anything they transmit the signals to the aliens coming down so yes we'd never see aliens. Yeah they would never come weaving they would have never given us all are cool technology back when we would have gone extinct. Got in by the toronto right. You're right. I don't mind history so i rolled out the pyramids as like my friend since i'm going to use and i went even further into the future. I went back to or forward to six hundred bc Which is like around ancient rome now. Ancient romans are actually credited as the first concrete engineers because they did a lot of experimenting with like different mixtures of concrete and they were like the first wants to implement it widespread. And there's a little like the range of their use of concrete is a little fuzzy said they said like anywhere between like six hundred bc and one hundred and fifty bc is kind of when it started to widespread But somewhere in there and it is definitively concrete. It's not there's no gray area. Well the all gray area. That's how i know it's concrete. I guess yes. So what kind of concrete did they use so fittingly we call it. Roman concrete and for their tissues part of the concrete. They used The general used. What's called hamas alantic ash which is like a low canucks sand and then for the aggregate. They used a whole bunch of different types like they experimented a lot so there are a lot of different types of that but for the most part the cement part was the same and this roman concrete actually led to what is called the concrete revolution which was an architectural movement in rome and the concrete allowed. The main feature of this architecture movement was the increase use of domes because the concrete for more domes to be made because it was less restrictive in terms of shape compared to like stone and brick So during the age of augusta use apparently they like rebuilt. A lot of the city of rome and during this age of augusta's is when the emergence of of domes came into their architecture and some examples of this are like the muslim augustus and the theater of marcellus and the the pantheon which is famous building has the largest reinforced concrete dome mainly because we reinforce our concrete now the biggest undersell. The panton ever heard the pantheon which was a famous building. You know the one. And i guess. The reason like they didn't have reinforced concrete peck. Apparently reinforced concrete wasn't really invented until eighteen. Fifty three francois conway had thanked name. He invented iron reinforced concrete. But that's like way way in the future from the ancient romans so All the stuff in rome was unrein forced now before domes became popular in round did still exist. Like obviously because it's a shape all shapes our in row all the main shapes our present in rome pro tractors lead from and they weren't just in other parts of the world usa like in china they had stone and brick domes For their underground tombs but the introduction of concrete allowed for the span of domes to increase a lot. So you got much larger dumpster woodhead existed before till like monumental size so like early. Masonry domes had a radius to thickness ratio of fifty but modern domes which includes concrete in like combination. With steel and stuff they've array she A radius to thickness ratio of eight hundred. It's way more efficient at just making big domes And like if you don't know domes are basically the ideal shape for concrete specifically because concrete is if it especially if it's not reinforced concrete is really good in compression is not good in intention so the dome shape. Actually if it's like a proper dome shape than every part of the dome is in compression. So it's taking advantage of the concrete but if these dumpson existing or if they did exist they're just smaller. Concrete didn't exist. I feel like these domes wouldn't have been as popular and they basically like as building grew bigger and bigger and bigger. I think these domes would have started to get phased out see when have modern domes. Like capitol buildings have domes and stuff in greenhouses and conservatories have domes. Spar stadiums have domes. Those won't be domes anymore. They'd probably just be square shaped or whatever but like you might be thinking what so. What's the big deal. Is that matter at all. So there's one feature to a dome that's unique only to domes and that is the acoustics so adum has it creates what's called a whispering gallery so if you're standing inside a dome shaped building and you stand like one side in a very specific spot and someone is standing on the other side and a very specific spot and one of you whispers than the other person can hear you really clearly just because of the way that the sound waves bounce off the walls and the angles and stuff and then like if you're standing in between those keep people you can't hear the whisper so that's a whispering gallery and it's there's a few of them all over the place but a famous one is in the us capitol building so the us capitol building has in their statuary hall. They have a famous what they call whisper spot and their saturate hough was actually used as the meeting place for the house of representatives between eighteen. O seven and eighteen fifty seven and the interesting thing about the statuary hall in the whispery spots specifically is that john quincy adams. Desk was right on the whisper spot. So john quincy adams. He was the president but his presidency. He became a member of congress and he participated a lot of debates and stuff that took place in the statuary hall and there. This is an urban legend. But people say that he would pretend to be asleep during the debates and then he would eavesdrop on his opponents and like use that to his advantage using the whisper spot. Incredible the power of the whispers. Now this is just an urban legend. And if you look more into it you discover as not really considered to be true and actually a lot of tour guides seem pretty annoyed angry. That people do believe it's true. I hear about this goddamn whisper spot one more. God dang time. Yeah like all the articles. I founder of like tour guys writing about it. Can you believe these people showing an interest in the trivia about this location. Just it. Just the worst. It is true that his desk was on the whisper spot. But i don't think laid back then. I think there is a whole bunch of furniture and stuff in like curtains and all that that actually like the sound and and actually work. I like the. I like the idea that. Listen from the whisper spotlight. There's a specific location. That could hear you. Yeah i would like the idea that like. They're doing a speech or whatever but they can also just like give side commentary from the whispers. Yeah he's just like he didn't remember his speech so some guys feeding speech but yeah the equivalent of like texting someone while someone else giving a speech here. This yeah so. It's probably not true that he did this blood. Assume it's true for the sake of my enter. So if john quincy adams is relying this dome shape to beat his opponents. What happens if he does if he no longer. Has this advantage. So john quincy adams. He was actually extremely influential in the house of representatives. In who is one of the most prominent national leaders that opposed slavery so he would like repeatedly present petitions to abolish abolish slavery. He actually argued on behalf of some of the slaves. That were on the honest add Which is a slave ship where. The slaves like revolted against their The people driving the book. What he he drive a boat sales sailors only to sail boat but they mostly were didn't have too many steamboats fairly okay and he actually got those slaves lake. He gained their freedom through like from that debate and then like during his death. A young abraham lincoln has actually present during his death and john quincy adams actually sort of paved the way for abram lincoln to finally abolish slavery later on. So i'm not like i know to stretch. But if there was no concrete there will be no domes. There is no dumpster. Be no whispering gallery. There's no whispering gallery then. John quincy adams would be less influential in his Debates about slavery which means that lincoln would not have abolished slavery. And i don't wanna say that concrete above slavery because kinda binding like the determination of a lot of good people in like the battles that were fought but maybe concrete just a little more influential than you thought and that's assuming that The john quincy adams whisper. Spot thing is true which it isn't but yeah that's my and assuming no one shifts anything in your hall of mirrors the those facts lineup exactly logical up. So that's where i'm going to end. I guess ben what do you do. So i'm not gonna completely talk about concrete. Actually been able get to new show. We're talking getting there so concrete and you guys can correct me on this. Civil engineers is from what i saw between a third to a half on concrete of sand right and so does not with about as being a limited resource. Something that you actually use. You're saying there's a lot of something say that there's as much as there are greatest or whatever. I was actually wondering i try to figure out or you know if anyone had figured out how much they're actually was. There was a essay paper and very loose terms from the university of hawaii. They try to figure it out. Basically the same way. We do math which is very fine to me. There's kind of estimated that total volume and area of the plant speeches. And just you know. Did the math out from there. Basically and got something like seven point five quintanilla grains of sand beaches in the world which is fun but regardless. It's something that we don't think of as being you know a limited resource but it actually is something that we are using very very rapidly For things like construction the numbers. I saw varied. It looks like as of twenty fourteen. The numbers were around fifteen billion tons per year more. Recently it's about fifty billion tons per year which by the way that increase is kind of insane just sort of on the face of it and roughly half of this usage is in concrete. 'cause we do make a lot of concrete. Roughly two cubic meters per year for every person on the planet which is enough to build a twenty seven meter tall at twenty seven meter wide wall. That goes around the entire equator every year. Why aren't we doing that with it right off seriously. But what's interesting is that. I brought up beach sickly earlier on you know. How much is something. I didn't really know about. Is that that. Sand and concrete is predominantly not like sand seeing and the problem is that desert sand is eroded by wind as very very smooth as actually so smooth vet the grains. Don't bind together well enough to make strong concrete which leads some very interesting situation such fact that if you look at dubai which obviously has done a lot of construction in recent years most of their sand despite being in the middle of the desert is from generally australia in two thousand fourteen. They spent almost half a billion dollars on sandstone and gravel imports. Love it which is once again. Just buck wild. But it's not all it's not all you necessarily used for For concrete or other uses as well. There's a lot using fracking which isn't actually usually beach sands or not to worry about too much. But the big one that is frequently. Peach sand is land reclamation which is just basically if you have a country that smaller bigger you just put shit in the water until land again pretty much and sort of the the biggest example. This is singapore. Where over the past forty years. They've added about fifty square. Miles of land mass. Which doesn't sound like all that much but that's about a lot yeah well. It's singapore is under three hundred square. Miles square miles is about eighteen. Percent of their landmass has all been ad in the last forty years which you would imagine takes up a lot of material and it did and most of that came from nearby islands. And they're at least two dozen indonesian islands. that are just gone since two thousand five hundred sand mining. They just don't exist anymore. This is this is. This is the fight of way to invade small islands britain. Had it wrong. You're not supposed to go there and occupy you're supposed to drink one. Big england could be by now with with singapore's big problem that indonesia malaysia malaysia and vietnam have all banned exports of santa singapore. Because it was such a. They're just literally losing their countries to. Singapore tried to expand and seal. You know obviously with all these uses it is big industry this sand my exporting in two thousand nineteen a roughly one point nine billion dollars in sand exports. I will say that sounds like a really big number. It's not as big if you look at like other things are exported when i found a list of different exports It's roughly the same as like silk. Which is a huge one and about half the export value of and i quote umbrellas comma walking sticks. I guess they're similar sure so you know. It's this huge industry but one of the things that that does happen when you have this. This material that is needed for construction and particularly and Developing countries is that. There's actually a lot of was sand theft and this is actually the story i found here is actually what got mcdonald's whole rabbit hole initially which i found a story about in two thousand eight in jamaica there was a resort being built on the north coast of jamaica at the coral springs beach and this resort had about five hundred truckloads of sand. They had prepared. They're ready to sort of fill out their beach and then basically overnight. It just vanished five hundred truckloads of sand and over the course of three months. There were no arrests. No leaves no nothing People are actually sure that like the police were not not in on it but you know bribed and there was a cover up. I looked so hard for any updates. I could not find any. The last thing i saw was the police for for doing forensic testing to figure out if the sand on other beaches nearby match the sand that was stolen which is hilarious. Odds facing once again that you can do that. I don't know when did you send this happened. Two thousand eight thousand eight okay and i. I looked so hard. Could find no follow up as far as i know the sand. Just vanish a lot. Who actually think that. It was stolen by a different resort. That's like the running theory. Is that other resort hierachy going seattle for their own beach. Wanna make a movie about this. I i want the movie to be made. I want to see this. I wanna see ocean. Eleven like oceanfront. Eleven as the crazy thing with all of this is that it's not just a one off crimes like this. There are actually Sand mafias there are very real organized. Crime problems around sand particularly and most are pouring. I saw was related to india. Because india is obviously going you know a lot of construction and sort of big boom and illegal sand mining has a very low investment requirement. Just a bunch of people who are willing to carry sand around Very high reward. That's a very good combination. It when he went organized crime and there are literally mafias. India that have murdered people. You know politicians journalists there. Are you know farmers who are trying to to stop these these illegal sand mines because they're like mine out there farmlands and there's actually you know legitimate organized crime that has risen up because of how valuable sand has become more fat movie too. I also want to see that movie as well. There's who knew wanna seat a farmer like over by the ocean just like working in sales and a bunch of boats with like an excavators. Come by and just start taking away. His san reducing the size of his land. And you like starbucks crazy voice. I don't i was going to let that go but what it was my farmer voice. No don't take that. I need that but yes so so really. That's kind of. I don't i don't have any kind of like you know crazy ridiculous ending here because the ridiculous thing is already half man. Which is that there are sand heist and sand mafias and if there weren't concrete we'd use from the essence. I saw roughly half as much sand's we currently do so we probably wouldn't have those things. Which although the road will be less cool. I guess it would also be probably a lot better so long story short aside from the whole you know not having ninety percent of what we make our billions out of the world would technically be a better place. If we didn't have concrete all right and with that that we move onto our. Would you rather question of the day i've been. This is a food question. So i'm going to start with. You sounds good. Are you ready. I am ready. You should say no one of these days. Yeah if if he says now go ups that was. That was the long game. You've ruined by plan. Would you rather cover all your food in gravy or cheese crazy. Earning okay. so we got a lockdown. What kinds so. I'm assuming what she's we have a choice of cheese have a choice of cravey's kinds of gravy gravy so have variety. Yeah what makes something a gravy. You tell us expert like it's usually. It's usually like flour and fat. That's kind of it right. Like what makes something you like thick and you'd like thick and fat with flour and it down right. That's kind of it. I think so is a sauce often made from the juice of meat that naturally during cooking and often thickened with wheat. Flour or cornstarch for added texture. I don't know what like instinct gravy is made of and if that counts. It's it's probably just like you know technically still yeah that that counts. I think there's something animal related in there. So what what would be the gray area that you're questioning. Why no like like sometimes weird. People call like red sauce gravy. I don't know that weird. It is weird. I don't agree with it. But i've heard it okay. So we're going to be related to meet meet basically drives me. It has to be a thing where you look at it. And you're like oh yeah that's gravy. Okay be identified like if you ask someone what that is and the like it's gonna be gravy. I mean i feel like a lot more variety of flavor and cheese. Now okay. she's have to be melted cheese. Because for some reason my mind originally was because i was thinking about greedy The wording is my mine too he. I mean that's a simple. That's the default way that just says cover all your food in gravy offer all your food gravier cheese who could be like shredded cheese like grated parmesan. Okay okay. the you'd probably need like a minimum amount that you put on right. I mean w covered covered covered implies that you see the cheese slash gravy. Not the food. So there's a layer of cheese or layer of gravy right exactly but that'll be a thick layer is a layer. What is the thinnest cheese. I mean i don't think is like cheeses good and gravy is good on most things i think. I guess we're just trying to figure out like there are right exactly. There are a lot of things that it doesn't really. You know i'm. I'm cool with this either way right like baked potatoes shir. Sign me up. give me both. But what are like in the ones. That aren't so slam dunk. Which is better. I like desserts right. Well i also feel so. I'm not gonna lie. I'm i'm definitely lean towards cheese. Just because i feel like you can find an acceptable cheese for a lot of things in ways. You can't find an acceptable gravy yet. She's can be a desert to So a little weird. But yeah i could throw some goat cheese on chocolate ice cream. Sure why not yeah. It's like a creamy. So yeah suggest things or like ricotta. You know right now that is a you know. Macaca goes in cannoli. There you go. it's a thing is there. Is there any think the fact that she's i think more expensive than gravy to cover all your things with Economically could be right. Well if you wanna if you wanna use grade like if you want good gravy good gravy you have to. You're going to have possessed by a ghost. Second i was. I was possessed by nineteenth century lawyer for a minute. There is the same ghost possessed markets when. He's doing his farmer voice. Yeah secretly spooky episode of absurd. It's actually just the ghost of like a cruise ship. Comedians really bad at impressions. You're gonna need buy a lot of meat to like cook to get the drippings for your grady's and i just use all interesting crazy which i personally don't really wanna do where we saying that you have to make your grave mirror that you just have kirby already made. I guess that's an important question. Marcus is great. He provided for you know you have to make it That makes a big difference. It does make a big difference. Well do you have to make your cheese. No you you know the storm you can go in the store and buy pre made but i imagine you make the instagram doesn't just magically appear in your fridge right okay okay so you don't have to like make a turkey and then make gravy from that turkey. No now okay. I think even during that. I just don't want i just really don't want gravy on most things like a salad. You can put put. She's on solids all the time. That's easy yeah. Cheese seems more versatile than gravy. Is there anything that she's doesn't work on the gravy would the right. That's the important. Is there just anything that she's doesn't work on. Yeah there's just a diagram of cheeses bigger circle. Like i think i think exactly you know roasted meats. I would far other have gravy on than cheese. But it's not like cheeses bad on it. It's kind of weird on it. Like i would put i would put gravy on like a steak. I wouldn't put a slice of cheese on a stake. But if you had that in you ate at you and be like. Oh that's bad. yeah there are. There are like like gorgonzola like blue cheese and crusted steaks and stuff too so actually dat technically exists. Hey guys the answer though. You already put cheese on everything. Yeah i can't think of like. I think this is the the real point is i can't think of a single thing that wants gravy. That doesn't want cheese yet. There's not much. I don't think there's anything i can think of a lot of things that also i would put cheese on. I would definitely not gravy on. Yeah the list is substantial. i've never had. Apparently people say that. She's an applebees yet. I've never had that. She's an apple was good. I haven't had cheese apple pie. But i definitely had just like slice of apples with which is that. I can't imagine that That gravy and apple pie kid. I probably unintentionally thanksgiving before he. Maybe that would work for me. I wouldn't turn it down. Apples agree though. That would be a little weird. Yeah all right to vote. But i think convince each other. I was going to make one more point. That cheese has the advantage of not having to be liquid. It can be solid if you want. That is gyro gravy. All suprema house cleveland's all hand foods. There has to be warmer has to be a gel so yeah man that one went. I guess kind of the way we expect and what you thought about literally all there you go there. You go put cheese on things not gravy three votes cheese.

Episode 105: What if you could perfectly train elephants?

"The Food for was, what if we had nine lives blooded pits UPS or if money through on trees if we did nappy. Back then Insert. Absurd Medical. Everybody Buddy and welcome to absurd hypotheticals. The show we overthink dumb questions. So you don't have to I'm your host markets later and joined here today by Chris e and Ben Storms say hi guys. Hey, I'm Chris Hey I'm Ben guys. We have another animal training episode today which I'm very excited for because these are some of my favorite animals bay sleep probably second favorite after octopuses. You have gone off about elephants a lot lately. Spoiled it I. Guess. Masters of our craft. Spoiler decide our question today is what if you could perfectly trained elephants? One of the coolest animals not n not just because they're big do lots of other stuff too which we will get into and since I'm the host, I. Get decided to go I I'm going to pick myself because forget both of you guys. So what I was looking at. Training elephants. The first thing I wanted to look at what was actually what? We trained elephants already people already trained elephants for things. So I was looking at what we do in the interesting stuff, and so of course, ended up looking at the ringling circus and all their elephant acts which they no longer do because the way they trained elephants was cruel and inhuman and very sad but we can do it in fun hypothetical way that doesn't make the elephants sad and so the most interesting thing that I found for their act was in the early nineteen hundred. Bomb Bailey run the ruling circles chief elephant trainer decided to teach his charges, how to play ball. I. Sorry. I. Was just copy and paste that off the Internet. Has Charges I guess is what you call your elephants. Charges I don't know. Is it groove elven called the charge or just? That's just they're fun language anyway. But, he wanted to play baseball. He taught an elephant named pilot to swing a bat and another named bessie to use admit and after two years of effort he taught another elephant cocoa to pitch. And in one thousand, nine, hundred, they played their very first game and the act was so popular that the actually ended up creating their own full elephant baseball team with nine players. That says other circulator followed suit I couldn't find a lot information because this was the early nineteen hundreds. So I don't know if they had Inter Circus Elephant Baseball Games but I don't think. So I think they would just have their elephants do different things. One. Of the fun facts was actually also in addition to actually being able to play with with the bat and the ball, they would teach the elephants to slide into first base, which is hilarious to. So the thing is since we're perfectly train these elephants you know we we can get a little further in Spain two years and a pitch. We can get them a little bit more skilled and so I kind of want to look at how good elephants were would be at baseball. So the first thing is how hard can they heart they throw it? How hard can they hit it? So an elephant trunk can lift seven hundred pounds. Or. As one source I saw said seven hundred thousand out. Big Difference urges why you double up double check your facts on the Internet the idea that if that were true and L. Phobia. Push turn on the ground like do seven flips in the air before land or something that pushed off. I did look up other I tried to look up what seven hundred thousand pounds. Let's just put it in context and so a couple points on that was. It's the weight of to like single story homes. Or the weight of three blue whales. So just imagine like three blue whale stacked on top of each other comes by like hoop. All right. But it actually is seven hundred pounds and thanks to the wonderful website. The measure of things I can tell you that's just put it in context is about one and two fifth times as heavy as a cubic meter of snow. So now you have a great idea was. As far as running the bases at elephant can run up to twenty five miles an hour though interestingly there's debate about whether they elephants can run or not. Wait how? I am trying to imagine an elephant running. It does look weird in my head our CEO has run I guess it's like a Trot I? Guess. So elephants can definitely speed up and have a maximum twenty, five miles an hour. It's pretty fast. The thing is they're quote unquote running motion is different than they're walking motion and they're not they're never all leave the ground like you know basically every other amendment when it's running and basically the only criteria to fill to be have it as running is that your gate is different than your walking and it isn't. Go. Directly Elephants only speed walk at twenty, five miles an hour, and so they can you know they will be strong. They can run fairly fast actually not ridiculously fast. I mean you same bolt is his top speed was twenty three, which is the fastest human. But it's kind of on similar orders of magnitude compared to what the stuff will usually look at. And then could like they throw the ball kinda accurately enough to hit it. So I couldn't find any videos of the ringling circus because it was in nineteen twelve but I did find a video from a Minor League Baseball team that brought an elephant out to throw the first pitch. And after one absolutely wild pitch that when like eight feet over his head, the elephant through busy perfect strike. So that puts them on par with Major League pitchers I think. So this, this is the part where you really start to scale things up. But finding out how fastened elephant can throw balls actually credited complicated we we talked about throwing speech before in the show involves a lot of it's not just like strength based. It's like. Dexterity and you know, Warren composition the arc faced yet art based with like anger momentum and different things limiting the. The speed of the balls limited by different factors than strength. I also couldn't find even if I found out through I wouldn't I couldn't find good reaction times for elephants swimming the ball would be faster because they're trump is much more flexible than an arm and much stronger would be able to throw the ball faster. I would doubt the be able to hit the ball and if they could hit the ball, I wouldn't I couldn't really figure out how hard they'd be able to hit it because again I have the same angular momentum problems, you'd be you had a video of it though and you could have like timed how long it took for to get from the pitchers man to the town plate you go the pretty casual toss elephant. Okay. Like if you're going to train these elephants perfectly, you're gonNA teach US elephant had like eat up throw a I don't know a two seam fastball or a one nostril fastball. I guess the scenes were on the balls. He can still call on Tuesday and fastball anyway. Visit as tackling problems I realized I was looking at the wrong sport anyway because wall scouring the web for basically any video of elven playing baseball. I'd also found a video by Rene Castle in Hungary where he taught his elephants several basketball tricks. And so his video was much more helpful. So he's got he's got you know he has a scene where the elephant just Kinda like goes over the basketball scores a basket. The one that was the most encouraging thank was that. It was going to take a shot and the elephant just like puts his foot up and blocks them into shut them down with his foot. And then the last one was the elephant tossed a layup and the second elephant launched him into the air and for him to slam dunk it. So that's awesome. So definitely, elephants have enough skills to play basketball they have They can throw the ball understand to get it in the hoop. And there's really only one thing that hinders and elephant from exploring the most exciting moments in baseball and that's the fact that elephants jump. This is actually a true fact because you know it's like what else animal facts right here all the time like I'm not sure if that's actually true or not or if they just don't very often jump and it's just sticks in people's mind because they're heavy. But the elephants physically cannot jump. The. Most common answer is that they're just not strong. Are Strong enough to lift their mass. I'm a little suspicious of this one. It's like half the reason that owns enough jumps they don't need to, and they would never bother to because elephants Kengo back up on their hind legs and balance. So I feel you're not too far away from at least jumping a tiny bit from there like strength. Wise idea that that all like, oh no, we totally can jump. We just don't want you to see us like we can jump really high guys like. Never, need to jump. They wouldn't, and so this this this problem can easily be rectified with generous application of trampolines or some equally wacky method. But there is actually another problem with why they don't jump and it's that their feet are built for it. So actually all the bones of elephants leg point downward, which sounds like it makes. You how you imagine legs are leg bones, point data words but the thing is it's actually the foot is where it really differs from us. So the weight outfits foot is built. Imagine like take your. Hand out like send your fingers and now have your fingertips touch without like chromium up, and then basically put that down on the table. That's basically what elephants foot boat looks like all the fingers he will their toes. All toes pointed straight down as like landing a jump from like on a tippy toe stance yet. So the promise their bone structure is too narrow and if you put too much pressure on there, it's GonNa like I mean in my head, it just pierces. Through and it's very, it's just say the fourth of landing would be unkind to the elephant. So there's two options we have here, I, think both of which create equally awesome in different sports. First thing is to not a ban the trampolines and simply fix the foot problem. So if you can give the elephant shock absorbing shoes that absorb the impact so it's not damaging to its feet then they might be able to jump safely effectively just create them industrial pair of Air Jordan's And then I think they could just eat out. Because they have if they need more air, they can just use their trump's to inflate it. So you just then put at elephants in a trampoline floor. Andrew. Good to go. You can have balanced elephant baseball. Basketball. The second thing is just forget about the jumping and bring people back to do the jumping for them. So I mentioned before that elephants trunk can live seven hundred pounds. This is more than enough to lift a person. So the sport then becomes a series of players balancing on elephant trunks and playing basketball effectively like higher. At a mid air level playing basketball, and then you make the hoops of course like now who are going to be like thirty feet up as opposed to like I don't know how high they are regulation wise but less than thirty. Of course, this is incredibly dangerous for all the people who is going to say. So, what you're GonNa do now is now you make pool sport so that the you know the basketball players can do all the cool tricks and flips jumps in all the awesome things that they want to do. They're going to need some you know some water safety in. So then the question is how much water do you need for? And so I use the diving regulation diving depths if you're diving off a diving board. and. So for a fifteen foot diving board, which is the closest size regulation I have to talk elephant with trump would be. The, water needs to be twelve and a half feet deep. So conveniently, elephants are somewhere between eight foot three and thirteen feet tall. So if you have elephants in the water, the tallest elephants would be tall enough to play the sport. So it does size out shorter elephants but basketball also sides short people. So I think that's fair. And then you just have a pool with elephants with like mostly submerged but they re route the water. If they want to I, think the elephants would be allowed to shoot. But then the most of it is just GonNa be them like tossing people and tossing basketball's around and trying to score on this basket. That's. Way Above the wave of the pool and I think it would be fracking. Awesome. Even with the Pool I think it'd be terrifying sport to play for the humans. It would be a little scared. I think the fact that you get to play with elephants in a pool and that's just the she'll awesome would attract you know enough players to get the game done. Play rugby and that's just as dangerous way less exciting because there's no elephants in it just as dangerous may be understanding. But they don't play. Rugby. Pool softer landings. But. Yeah that's what I got either you know trampoline basketball with Air Jordans or pull basketball with people flying around all place Chris, what would you do with your elephant training? So when I was looking at elephant abilities and facts and stuff. A. Lot of stuff that I was like Oh this would be good for heist and I figured I haven't done in awhile so I'm going to do heist the traditional thing we do yes. Usually you do the heist but this time me so I'm just gonNa run through some of the traits that would be good for a heist. I. So I found one ability they that they can mimic sounds. So there's an elephant named Mica I'm not sure if I'm pronouncing that correctly but and also. Known over to here she I think it's a she but she could copy the sounds of a truck and that's how they discovered this ability and then there's some other elephants that can do other like I think more impressive stuff. So coat an elephant named Kasich, which is an Indian elephant in South Korea she can imitate five Korean words so she can say sit no yes and lie down in Korean and the way that she does this is that she places her trunk in her mouth. I'm saying Chiba again I don't over here she I'm not really sure. I'm just GonNa take what she. She sticks her trunk in her mouth and then she vibrates it while she breathes out and that's how she mimics these words. Like I hear your words like I don't know how that would make a recognizable sound. So I think we actually talked about this in the podcast before I feel like I talked about this. Did we I don't remember this I don't remember why would we be talking about this? I don't remember when it was definitely talked about talking animals. Oh, you did talk about talking animals remember that one the. Animals can talk you guys must be pulled from like who yesteryear I'm looking now and trying to find it. I'm pretty sure the question is just what if animals could talk I think so and you're like they can talk. Basically how it went yeah. Yeah that was an early episode but anyway. So basically, I just think this would be a good like distraction method or sneaky distraction like if they take out a guard, the guard is like, are you? Okay over there than the elephant? Can you feel it? Yes. and. Might sound a little different than than the the guard but I mean I think they can make it. Past I. Think they can get away with it. So that's that's a method of distraction. Another method distraction elephants are known to just do things for entertainment to like entertain themselves and also others. So some a lot of elephants are known to just water with their trunks and then blow it out like a fountain. So That's like another perfect distraction. They don't even need to be part of the highest or like if the guard see in elephant outside is be like Oh. That's cool. Elephant is doing cool stuff. Is Enough of destroyed by being an elephant. Yeah. But then he has a cool found thing is like, oh, someone like hired developing or something to entertain us. As, the perfect distraction while the other elephants do their team I like the I like the idea that elven by themselves rang warned like must've fired. Yeah he wouldn't do that for free now must be security guard appreciation day. Yes. So we've got me in elephant that should be a day. I mean probably is already probably is. Yes. So that's distractions. They're I think they're pretty well equipped to distract the guards. So next a looked at their ability to use tools that Zico, apparently, they can use tools in nature they use branches, scratch their backs, and then in like captive aunt captive elephants sometimes these boxes to reach food that's editor there each other elephants have been known to. Place like rocks on electric fences nor pass through them without getting. And then there's some elephants can use paint precious. So there fuel fence that paint one of them is ruby at the Phoenix Zoo. And really. I mean that's not. You're getting excited Phoenix. That's like. Your name kind of not really your name. My Internet Monica is, is Marcus Felix Yeah Yeah I know. But these paintings that ruby paints some of them have sold for up to twenty, five, thousand dollars. So they actually pretty valuable not just like random. Paint Lake smeared on a canvas. Does another in Thailand that paints flowers so they can paint like actual objects. That looked like things. and. Then there's a viral video that it went viral awhile ago you might have seen it before, but there's an elephant that paints another elephant I see it. Yeah which is very impressive and I think it was revealed later that it wasn't actually like a result of creativity they actually taught the elephant like sequence of learns brush script strokes. So it's really just Nelson going through the motions but I think that that's a way to minimize art like Oh man well, I mean if they just teach it to I I guess not. It's not like the elephant was able to envision the elephant and draw. On. It was nice portrait right like right but I. I did a good drawing that based off something else. You just learn how to do a bunch of brush strokes and apply them like well, screw. You know I drew this. But. It's more like if someone's like, okay. Take your hand and put it here and then move it in this angle for this distance. Learning how to draw. Anyway but the fact that it was taught. I think just proves more that elephants can learn precise movements from like me training it. So I can teach it to learn how to use lock picking stuff and it will be able to do it. That's really my main application of its tool use. I'm probably GONNA have lock picks I don't know exactly how it might be a little difficult because fix are small and. Maybe attach it to a stick or something, and they can hold the stick. An elephant's trunk is dexterous enough to pick up a single grain of rice. Okay. Then they can do grab eighty other grade the same time. Now I'm Kim actually pre. And it's also 'cause I think lock picks require you actually have to use two different pieces are separate from each other at the same time but I feel like I'd be able to teach elfin how to do that. So I'm going to say it. As with most times, we said the ANNUALS can pick locks. I have doubts about this. Let it go. We ever agree that apple could pick a log no. I have not I'm sure like a a monkey can do it. Okay. Probably, we haven't done if you could trade monkeys yet though. We'll get there eventually. But they can elephants can also manipulate other complex mechanisms. For example, There's an Asian elephant named Band Dula in California who is able to unlock her shackles it had a bunch of different components to it, but the most complex component to it was the Brummel Hook, which is to hook sitter attached to each other and then Nora on Hook them you have to align this little gap on both of them to get them apart and was able to do it. And she actually do know that this was she ha-. redeemed. And after she feeder so she actually went and helped other elephants escape as well which I think is pretty cool. That is pretty cool and while they're escaping, they actually exhibited signs of Lake deception where there are like looking around to see if other people if humans were around to see them and they're like making sure that they weren't being seen. So this is Kinda, demonstrates that they understand the basic idea of stealth, which is obviously self very useful for a heist. So it's not something you necessarily have to teach their eighty nine. So we have distractions, we have tools and we have stealth next we have communication they can. So elephants can communicate with very low frequency calls that actually below the frequencies are blowing humans can here. So they can communicate up to two kilometers. It's very long distance and it's silent us in the way they do this is that they do seismically so they can detect. Vibrations in the ground using their feet in their trunk, and obviously, this is going to be very, very useful for heist if they can communicate with each other without anyone hearing it. So those are really the basic skills that they have for a heist, but you may have already thought that elephant are big. So how are they GONNA fit in whatever they're hosting like they can't really. They can't fit through any doorways so like banks and museums really aren't gonNA work. So I, need something big and eat something that has big openings for their entrances and I started looking at warehouses specifically Amazon warehouses. So obviously Amazon whereas his are big and they have big openings for the trucks. So they can load the tracks and they have a lot of valuable stuff in them. Too because they saw Steph and I wanted to see what kind of stuff are elephants could steal because we don't want to just get all the really cheap stuff because you're gonNA have to make one hundred trips. It's not going to be array efficient. So I started looking at the most expensive things you can get on Amazon, just to get the value density as efficient as possible. Now when I was doing this I went on Amazon and they have this thing where you can sort by price, but they can you can't do it. If you're browsing through every single agent, every single item you have to pick a category. So I started with jewelry that seemed like a good place to start how much damage have you done to your Amazon. Search like preferences right now I don't know because I haven't hasn't been long enough for me to see the damages. I like. I literally avoid clicking any Amazon links from anything. I don't want to have ads for the next four weeks. Now, they're going to start thinking I'm rich so. The most expensive piece of jewelry that I found on. Amazon? Just. By sorting the price, it was a necklace as the official name. I. Guess Is Extra Large Forty one point thirty, one t white and fancy yellow diamond eighteen carat to tone gold flower necklace. I don't know why they called Fatty Yellow but. It's white and fancy yellow diamond. Sold by Milano Jewelers and its price is two, hundred, sixty, five, thousand, seven, hundred, eighty, one dollars and twenty five cents. Does it come with? Free delivery it is. It does have free shipping. All Right Amazon prime eligible. I. Don't know if it's Amazon private said free shipping. I didn't see the prime logo on it Oh, then you shouldn't buy. Who knows if it'll even get there? Yeah, I know I don't know if I can trust Milano Julius. So on the front page of the Julie, they also had a bunch of other jewelry and those are all also expensive. They had twenty other pieces of jewelry that were over a hundred thousand dollars so. And I assume all of them like usually if there are low on sock than they indicate that so I don't think there are lawn stock they've probably have multiple of these in-stock. So that's a pretty good thing to steal I guess. I. Wasn't actually I wasn't exactly sure how Amazon works if. Milano Jewelers Hasta store them in the warehouses or if they can just sell them from their store wasn't sure. But I'M GONNA assume that there in the warehouse and if not I like I think probably at least one of them is going to be in the warehouse I would know you're you're the one was there were sold anything through Amazon. So that is book though so It's not it's not a two hundred, thousand dollars necklace. Yes, it's not. You should made that instead I should have then I would know for this enter how be able to give you a definitive answer, but I can't also, you might have two, hundred, thousand dollars will. Actually. saw this stuff there were a couple of these head reviews on them and they're clearly joke reviews i. Would spend two, hundred, fifty, thousand dollars or whatever on a diamond you know sometime jury on Amazon that just seems hysterical to that. You'd like, yeah that would be the way you go about this purchase and want to ask them to the car before I check out I just put a couple necklaces in here. You know how it is when you're trying to get to the free shipping threshold, you just need a little something you know took the top. Yeah. They get a free shipping on this boat. So I, need to put two hundred thousand dollars, right So. That's jewelry next I looked at arts and collectibles because I figure there's a lot of like fine art at their collectibles can get pretty pricey too valuable in this is actually where I found the most expensive thing when I was looking I, don't know if there's more expensive stuff but this was the highest one I saw. So it was is a poster of the bride of Frankenstein I. Guess It's a collectible. It was really like is just a normal poster and the it was sold by poster city and it cost nine hundred and fifty thousand dollars holy while. Almost a million dollars. So what is this? What is? The official name is the Brad a Frankenstein. Nineteen thirty five, Karloff teaser one sheet universal horror exclamation point. But yeah, it's really I mean I'm clicking the link right now and I'm looking at the picture it looks like it's just a poster Oh it's currently unavailable. It was available when I when I found it so someone. Must have bought it for. A million dollars Amazon has a one star rating now. Oh my God. That's amazing. Yes. So that's the poster that apparently is not available anymore, but it was when I found it in the super expensive. Those. Are the two categories I thought I'd find the most expensive stuff in jewelry. Arts, and collectibles. But. Then I found lake for some reason I, find myself browsing the Office Electron Ix. I just found my way there somehow and it wasn't the most expensive single item. The poster was the most expensive single item by did find in the office electrtonics a paper shredder that was three, hundred, nineteen, thousand, two, hundred, sixty, seven dollars, and twenty, three cents. Would that look a paper shredder shredder maybe I don't know of his. It might be like an Dow struggle paper shredder at that price it would have to be there no lake dimensions on the product page or anything, but it I. Guess. So they call it a continuous duty strip cut shredder with twenty four she capacity I don't know what that means. I mean apparently it's heavy duty can shred like CD's and stuff and it has I can censor that Oughta medically stops if put your fingers close to it so it does have some fancy stuff. Sound worth it. Worth. Three, hundred, thousand dollars. Goodbye for three hundred thousand dollars a regular hip or shutter a piece of paper that says don't put your fingers near this and you know two, hundred, nine, thousand dollars of an issue. And they do have ten of these stock as at least when I first up attendance stock actually at the link. They still have tended stock. Knowing bought these surprise unless they restock maybe they sold all ten and got ten new ones in Oh. The price went up the price is higher now than what I saw it before the band is. Now three, hundred and twenty, eight, thousand anyway. Yes. Those are just expensive things. Oh Yeah. They had tenants stock. So if you steal all ten of them, then that's over three million dollars. So that's a pretty good hall. So those are probably the three things I'd focus on is the jewelry, the the poster and the paper shredders. Yeah, an the the Schroeder's are pretty convenient too because they probably way less than the seven hundred thousand pounds at elephants are able to lift. Yeah. So if I could train elephants, then I would train them to break into those those. Amazon, where has his actually know what the shifts are like there because I think they have a lot of actual people working there like. Probably throughout the day but we have distractions we can distract them. So we're good. With their. Elephant found technique. Very good. Anyway Ben would you do so I'm realizing right now down a good way to explain why I did what I did yet so. This is why he put you last let's just jump to the chase here. I wanted to put an L. vote. There's reasons for this we'll get to later but before we can get to like the various use cases on a boat. figure out can we put an elephant on a boat because elephants are very heavy and votes obviously have you know? Limited capacity. Heavy things on boats before. The answers? Yeah. We have like cargo ships like obviously on a cargo ship but like. Like I want this more for personal use. You know I, want an elephant friend like my my like first mate you know. Okay. So it was actually not trivial to find just like a you know smallish boat like not you know cargo ships is that can carry now fan because elephants as he may probably know are pretty heavy. It varies based on the species from like thousand to thirteen thousand pounds for an adult male elephant. And sort of the rough guideline for the carrying capacity boat is like the length times the width and feet divided by fifteen is the number of people you can have. And apparently like the accepted weight of persons. One, hundred, eighty, five pounds. Getty had being like person and you know some stuff. So like a relatively standard size like sailboat that person would have as something like three two feet long and ten feet wider. So and only gives you about four thousand, one, hundred pounds, which is not enough to carry an elephant. A few options like some yacht and stuff by decided taking an elephant on how super yacht is probably not the most practical option although it's pretty baller we we can all agree yeah gotta say it's pretty much the best lay yeah you know super. Villain. Extravagant waste of money that you could do. Also I assume the rest of your answer isn't going to be practical either. I mean, you'd be surprised Chris. Okay So, I wanted I want a practical elephant bearing. So I found a fishing boats for sale this and G for Co tuna trawler only under a hundred thousand dollars which the fact that apparently by like a tuna fishing boat runner under one hundred, thousand dollars was a little surprising to me. Is admittedly like seventy years old both been refitted since it was built. I like seventy feet by nineteen feet, which is not formula sixteen thousand pound capacity I'm also pretty sure that capacity formula breaks out at some point because they have listed hold capacity of like forty thousand on this thing. So clearly. I think that's mostly as for like you know personal use boats but point being. A At least somewhat reasonably priced boat you can put an elephant on stuff one. So. We are fishing trawler going out this is. Why we have elephant the question that I'm sure you want an answer to. The first reason, and this is why went down this road in the first place is. I wanted to figure out if you could have an elephant do sima. For. which is that thing that people do or they use flags to communicate? Okay. So why they have these big I wanted to use the elephant ear somehow for years actually like do that's cool which is admittedly pretty cool as the elephant cools themselves down with their ears just because like blood vessels in the pump the blood through the years and years airing their side, the blood cools down and then goes the bonding calls them. We can't do anything with that. But I just knew that years like a very important part of the elephant. Style I wanted to include them somehow. Elephants style style. There's had literal hand waving that happened while I said elephants style. That's the that's the that's the that's like the secret dojo moves is that is the elephants Thailand Oh. Yeah oversaw Hanway it's kind of like. Your. Fountain Style Elephant Fountain Style Distraction. Trying to figure out if you like painted elements, ears brightly colored could it do like the four? You know signals in terms of the way that works you have your flag H. Hand. There's basically eight positions. The flag can be in as like forty five degree angles like straight up straight down straight laterite right and then you know four degrees between each of those. Yeah. And then by doing different, you know you can do different letters or numbers or you know certain commands by doing a different you positions. Prior into obviously is that an elephant cannot for example, put one ear straight up and one ear to the right that's not gonNA work. But there's a solution which is just that it has both ears available and also host flag with its trunk and then it can do everything. So you just abandoned the entire reason that you looked at this in the first place. No because you still you still can only hold one flag trunk Okay Still WanNa your at all times. Okay. Got It. It's just that for a lot of them you need more. Flexibility that are going to get which just the ears. So technically could have your elephant perform Sema for Sophomore, tonight pronouncing. I try to figure out if elephant could like light see another ships. I don't think they can see far enough that really work There's kind of research on how good elephants vision is, but it looks like the the real fall to fifty meters, which is pretty close. although it's kind of weird because also I saw something saying that like at fifty meters, they're able to tell very small like by language cues from other. They would like fold lower part of their ear back if they were like trying to threaten an elephant and they could see that figures out which. Feels like the travel to see further. But yeah. So basically based on that either their visions really good or real shit. So there's no way to know which what I did like one of the articles I. was reading definitely implied elephants chess were like not lazy but just didn't really bother seeing a lot of things like they had almost like selected vision. And it was I've laid the tunnel right now it was like they were talking about how also things are no elephants are generally better at seeing motion like a lot of animals are but life they're saying that if they just walked straight towards elephant, the often would always see them. But if they walk crouch down a little bit anytime, the look toward them to stop moving the elephant noticed them. would. Just uninterested in that I. Guess Yeah I. Guess they're one of the things like for the most part you know they're just like. Right. So it kind of makes sense that if something's not approaching them really not care that much but know elephants I guess I would say I feel the same way about like a cat on the street where if a cats approach me like, oh, shoot there's a cat executive is a cat around and he's just like chill unlike or whatever. Yeah. Point being you might have to like look at this signal you know do something for with your elephant he can't do it all on his own but I mean at least you're not to hold the flags. That's kind of cool. Anyway. What else can your elephant do? So. Probably, the most useful thing elephant can do is actually just straight up act as a lifeboat for you. so as as Marcus, kind of brought up. Elephants can swim or actually way better swimmers than I thought they were. You know I knew that elephants could swim. I hadn't realized how good they were swimming. Apparently, they're Elvis in Africa been recorded a travel like forty eight kilometers across water, which about thirty miles whoa or swimming six hours continuously, and there's actually some research from University of Melbourne that suggest that elephants may have actually evolved from aquatic mammals that live there they they evolved from acce- cows and that their trunk was actually originally used as a snorkel. Always kind of wondered why elephants had like how elephant evolved trunk very weird to sit. You know that's like the only animal that has that right but apparently, it may have actually been used as a snorkel for a swimming mental, which is pretty cool. and that's how Elvis they swim. Submerged and poker trunk out as a snorkel apparently just like they actually just love swimming like go and stuff was pretty cool. But point being if your ship were to go down, you are very little weight to an elephant. You could just hop on board and your alphabet told me to shore. But if there is submerged than you abusive merged, they're not entire. They're not like mostly because other trump booking up. So they're like you know crocodiles exactly. They're mostly that I, can iceberg but part of you, it's still be underwater. Like your legs like your head, we both be way wet. It's not a boat, an elephant but. It's also a friend. Chris. There's no. No overseeing how important that is in time. There's nothing wrong with getting wet with a friend in an emergency. Slide on that one. So last use of an elephant. and. This is one of the things that I I was really hoping would workout so. Probably Ryan to on a boat is that water will frequently get into a boat not just because he like you know hers you know our crack in this out but just from you know rain or waves, we've ever anything. And so both to have bilge pumps that just pump out water to avoid it, you know becoming an issue. So I was wondering if an elephant could actually as your bilge pump on your boat. So the first question is how what is an elephant pumping capacity? How did you research this? I did I figured out. So an elephant can suck up around fourteen leaders or three point seven gallons of water in their trunk. And I found a video on Youtube of a Guy Ryan outfit through the water while the elephant was like sucking up water and sprain back on him. Very funny was very good video. A three, three second long video, any spray, the guy with water four times. So it'll be eight and a quarter seconds per trunk full but it was definitely lolly gagging a little bit and the fastest like trunk entry into water to like return to water was about five seconds. I'm GONNA say six seconds per trunk full. Just you know to give a little bit of breathing room there Wish we ten trunk full per minute. So that ten trunk falls per minute a three thousand gallons per minute, which is twenty two. Sorry two, thousand, two, hundred, twenty gallons per hour. So I looked actual like bilge pump requirements slash recommendations. And knowingly most of the things I could find we're just for you know more recreational boats. There were a lot smaller than our seventy foot fishing boat. By did find recommendation for afford a forty, five foot boat of two thousand and two, four, thousand gallons per hour pumping. So, it's probably not going to do all of our pumping, but can defy actually a pretty much larger chocolate I expected. Just from like comparing that to the recommendations for smaller boats at seems like it scales up not linearly but close enough for our purposes. So it could probably be about half the pumping capacity, which is a lot more nice expected when I try to figure out if an elephant, could you know pump out water from your boat and? So I'm hoping that you actually see now the elephant vote was pretty useful much more than expected help communicate. It's it's more expensive, but also dot enough to actually Let you've not do any of the other things like. You still need to send before four, your elephant December four. You still probably WanNa lifeboat on your boat. In case you're far enough out from shore and you don't get wet and you also still need the pump. You just don't have to run quite as often. Probably we probably have to pumps normally you only need one. Kind of something, there's also a pretty big issue is. that. It was just the elephants eat a lot and I don't think you can hold much on your boat. So you probably shouldn't take an elephant, a boat and the POOP. You'd have a problem we have a poop problem. But if you did happen to have an elephant vote, it will be way more useful than I expected going into this answer. My that's my main takeaway is an elephant is a fine I mean. Not Great just five. Each lot fade problem. Ben. Would you rather never be able to use a credit card again or pay for food using pennies. Oh I case I'M GONNA I'M GONNA. Let's. Let's get like the smart. The way I I'm assuming you like like Oh you're the debit card instead, right? That's no you have to like if you're buying any food, it has to be in pennies nor no. Credit card part. Oh. Yeah no debit card card. God Okay I feel like this is a pretty easy one for me. So. Can you can you buy? Donna how you would buy cars. You can't buy a gift card to the grocery store and use that it would be oh, you're saying for online purchase. Out like like the big problem I've seen is that how do you buy things online and if you can't that's a pretty big. I guess you can't. Yeah. Can you buy things on Amazon with like a cash or check? Can you like male? Female not male Jeff bezos money. And he'll just like ship it to you. Personally that's not how Amazon works. For almost all like fees municipal there's always the pay by mail option. Yeah. Way Our checks allowed in this case checks half of your loud if if checks are allowed. Just, can't you can't? You can't pay rent yet easily. I. Mean you can. You can only pay Rana cash, which is like super super sketchy although you could buy Amazon you could buy Amazon gift cards in cash that you could. That's right. They saw those like like grocery stores and stuff so you could still buy on Amazon but that does that count I was a gift cards don't Kevin Gift cards you can use his still super super annoying because like I feel this way. Chris so imagine you want to. Buy. something. On Amazon unless you happen to have a gift card already, which you could probably just keep some on hand, you have to go to the store in order to be able to go home and Vitaly on Amazon Okay Yeah. I see that also worse even worse than that let's say you have you have your whole you loaded up you have your hundred dollars Amazon gift cards in a stack by the computer. Have you tried to use a gift card to buy anything online? It's horrible. You'll like go into this things forty two dollars. Oh, but there's thirty eight dollars left on this gift card. Oh, it won't let me put input to gift cards at the same time Oh note there goes my car I'll let me try again I've never tried to use to gift cards on one purchased before what's the highest Amazon gift. Card, you can get probably a hundred dollars that's not a lot. Yeah. Probably there might be two hundred hundreds probably the most you're going to get although I, think actually Amazon gift cards don't work like you know Amex gift cards, they'll just like I don't. Amazon account stack them without worrying about running on one card God you're going to. So I'm noticing a problem with US plan though is that you're going to get flagged as money launderer immediately like yours go your grocery store and buying five hundred dollars Gift Cards, oh? Yeah. People are gonNA. Think you're getting scammed all the time oh no they're. thinking. Like stolen money or counterfeit money one of the two. Oh. Yeah. That to. Guide, these are both so bad we haven't talked about. Food with pennies. Can, it be at? Can you use a roll of pennies? I mean how much is in a role pennies? Is that just a dollar? A roll painting is only dollar yeah. So like It's Donald, has so bad. Way Too many pennies for all your food. That's alive. Oh No, it's worth. Only fifty cents. Is Fifty cents per roll of pennies. So it's like that'd be like two hundred, fifty rolls of pennies you're gone for like twenty five bucks food. Yeah I mean in my mind we were just talking about inconveniences of Dams Gift Cards I. Think this is way more inconvenient. I think it is too. I expect that I think it is to. Also, it also counts like restaurant right and non any you can go to you can you can inconvenience a grocery store cashier? You're the asshole if you bring in rolls of pennies, of course. If you a restaurant and put like fifty bucks worth of pennies on the table your I think they kick you out like even beyond that. If you go to like AAA and via a Burrito and put twelve rolls of pennies on the counter they're going they're just no even that is too much and like your trips to get food will have to be specifically to get food. You're not gonNA just be like out during the day doing something else and then be like I'm hungry I'm going to get some food. Because you're it's not going to carry around those pennies over the place also, could you even go around comfortably get groceries the backpack full of you know two hundred, fifty rolls of of pennies on what is a role pays way. Oh my God stop. This is an important important question. Apparently. Pennies minted after nineteen eighty, three way two and a half grams. So a row of pennies a little over a quarter pound apparently. So, one hundred, one, hundred rolls of pennies would be twenty, five pounds, twenty or twenty seven and a half pounds like to use the actual twenty, five pounds a lot to carry around I mean this not it also takes a lot of space. Yeah. The spaces have problem. Well. Actually. Not really like they're pretty small they're pretty dense like weight wise if you have like a backpack. Yeah. Guide I mean the heaviest a big heavy suitcase for like the the biggest care like A. Announced Cherry is, yes. Is Fifty pounds is is fifty pounds and that's like I mean even if you don't mind carrying around the stuff I, think the social aspect of it is. Bad enough like everyone's going to hate you. Yeah. For me I mean for me what got me is the restaurants restaurants pad. Grocers just as bad as restaurants they they actually probably are. He's right just from the scale of it maybe even worse because there's a line behind you. Like to me to me the restaurants more person like. It's more of a like because you've already sit through a meal and they've already served you and been. Not Giving. These like you're not giving these pennies to you know the powers that be at stop and shop like it's not some faceless corporation. Dealing with your two hundred fifty it's it's the do that runs his like little local family restaurant. I mean they're family grocery stores to imagine imagining heavy Andrew Sleeping like eight Rosa pennies on your check. Yeah. It's like the subtle imagine casino. Grandma's slips you like twenty bucks secretly and like your shirt pocket. Except like. Do that to like the way? The waiter you're doing it with like fifty rolls of pennies. Something for your troubles cashew right. So it sounds like we're leaning pretty heavily towards I. It's no credit card. Is there any? Is there any advantage to the penny thing? I mean you get to use your credit card like other besides food you can. Do everything else. But I, think like the majority of stuff you earliest I buy food. Yeah. COMES UP A lot. Yeah. I don't see a way that you can redeem the hundred pennies right now. So with that I, think we're ready to do our determination. I'm. GonNa Unsurprisingly vote for I would rather not be credit card same same. I don't think we really need to say that. Easy peasy UNLV's easy peasy guys giving US money. Yeah. If you're a www dot patriots, dot com slash absurd hypotheticals and click on the become patron button. It's just a dollar a month one hundred pennies which may sound like a lot of pennies but it's not it's just two rolls of them and you can use your credit card and yet you could use your convenient credit card unless you are stuck in this hypothetical situation and I don't as mind food I don't know if you can pass pennies because we don't really offer that as an option.

Episode 97: What if Earth had two suns?

"The Food for was what if we had nine lives blooded pits. UPS, or if money through on trees, if did nappy. Back then. Some serve. Absurd. Medical. Everybody and welcome to absurd hypotheticals. The show where we overthink dumb questions, so you don't have to I'm your host. Marcus Leaner and I'm joined here today by Chris Ye and Ben storms say hi, guys. Hey, I'm Chris Hey I'm Ben guys. We got another space question today, which are always my favorite. You do love space. I loved not only does it a space question. I get to do planet stuff again which is. I love it. It's so fun. I don't know why specifically like planet formation is my new jam like an expert on it by now. I barely had to do any research for this just. This will not be repeated my other answers so our our space question. I'm excited about is. What if Earth had two sons? Like that get star, wars, plant, tattooing, and probably a lot of other side planets. Probably, but that's the one people think about like the GO-TO. Yet there's not one. There's like one in doctor who I think. There's a a more popular one doctor who, but is obviously a Sifi trope so. I went into this one is could. Earth have formed in a solar system like this, so I'll start with just the short version of how plants and solar systems form, because I've come this part. I've covered a couple of times, but. Basically. The quick version is the way a source informed is big. Bang happens all the dust and hydrogen Hewlett material is all around, and eventually it slowly coalesced together due to the gravity. The gravity pulls a closer closer closer and closer until the set onto a forms like. Big Disk of dust, and in the center of the center of the disc, the dust compresses so much that the forces star creating fusion and the star formed in the center of the system. And then the remaining dust around it kinda orbits lazily around that Sun until that dust under gravity slowly comes together informs planets. So in our to scenario in the center of the disk, instead of just one big Sunday kind of two going around each other and the thing that sucks for planet creation is that because these two stars keep moving around the middle and dancing around? It really destabilizes the inner portion of the source system where Earth would normally form. 'cause if if the orbit path of the dust around the sun isn't nice and gentle and slow, it makes it really hard for dolittle planet towards the former is to get the building blocks of planets, and even when you get them. If, they're unstable the crash into each other instead of creating planet. They'll just be destructive instead of. Cooperative cooperative rocks. Planet toyed. Yeah Planet. It basically just asteroid, but but it's just like a pre planet, so it's tough to get him in the middle. That's not to say. Planets don't form around two star systems. Once you get far enough away from the center. The motion becomes a little bit more of a rounding error. And you get more stable orbit so further distances you can still get plenty of formations. The difference is if you are forming a planet far away from the Sun where it's nice and cold, the basic gases and everything that formed the planets are cold enough that they actually freeze, and when you have planets that are made up of frozen gases, you get gas giants instead of rocky planets so. Are Actual there are planets found that they found in real life in binary systems in the. Habitable Zone that we want. But turns out. was they found? They all theorized their gas giants that formed further out and have migrated in towards the Sun. So we could have earth in the right orbit. But. It's the wrong type of planet. So the question is. Could we in any way get rocky planet in our solar system? That would be more earthquake so if our solar system can't make a rocky planet. We'll just have to get one from somewhere else. In the Milky Way that are billions of rogue class at aren't connected any solar system at all. And there are few ways that these planets can kind of go rogue, one of the more common ways that early in the solar system's life when these planets are our first forming. It's like you know things are still a bit a bit messy quote, unquote. Planet, collisions or gravity much bigger planets can actually mess with the orbiting toss plants out into space. And they lead the so we'll get into philosophy to leave their solar system, and then kind of drift around, and then the can be caught by. The grab another son. Planets actually conformed entirely isolated in space, so instead of being in the dust cloud of a of a star world be commonly, you can get enough random gases in you know in deep space in the void that would just come together under gravity. And this this is kind of interesting because they formed their basically failed solar systems because they don't have enough energy to create the fusion. And Planet made this way would actually be entirely made of hydrogen. Like orphan planets yeah like they're busy. Orphan Jesus Planet's because they don't really have a a son, Mommy. or against the son Mom and dad in binary in binary son in Tucson solar systems. There's two more exciting that they can be. You can get real plants one is they can be injected when a star goes Supernova. I don't think those would be good candidates for our earth for earth, because that would likely destroy any atmosphere that they have, and you know most of the planet itself. Because being a Supernova Supernova is not an ideal spot to be for a planet, and then my favorite is what they call hyper velocity planets, which can be going anywhere between seven and ten million miles an hour through space, and these ones form when you have a two star system, and the system gets too close to black hole, and the black hole sucks up one of the stars, a one that goes to the black hole, but during that process the other star is slingshot at. Face. Taking its plants with it, and you can get planets from that slingshot effect. Unfortunately. Why do you want one of these hyper philosophy plans to be the base of our Earth if it formed a two star system, it would be a gas giant anyway, so we're going to have to go with the boring one where it just kind of gets tossed out of an early solar system. So the next question is you have these planet? These rogue planets shooting around space at whatever speeds what are the odds of our solar system actually being able to? Catch this planet. And put it into orbit as far as what the actual I have, no idea but. Interestingly there may be a rogue planet in our own Milky Way. And by the way I mean like in our in our actual son are. Are just our solar system called just our solar systems. The hunting creatures called her solar system. Yeah, I heritage! techni The sun is sole right. Yeah so in the sole solar system. Knowing. I'm going it. Technically the sole system, yeah, the souls his Oh. Wait no hold on, not undermine. That's most science fiction. The, the International Astronomical Union. Calls it the solar system and the sun so never mind. We are very uninventive. All right so in the best solar system capital T. S. and actually knows lower case, t apparently. But yes, there might be a by might be more than likely is a row planet in our solar system, which is the elusive planet nine? Not Pluto it does no longer planet, none planet, nine with capital P. and a capital N. No capital t dough capital. It's still it's still considered a hypothetical ninth planet that may be caught in our solar system in a distance orbit, so it would be further out, and in a very very eccentric orbit, and so they had like basically the quote, unquote discovered this planet, because they had some gravitational anomalies, and or it behavior in the solar system. They couldn't really explain, but it could be explained by like a big object you know. Big Planet sized object I think it's ten times the size of earth. Moving around in this weird orbit. and. Then they're like. Hey, maybe and then a few years later they kind of predicted words over it might be an in that orbit. They noticed motion of a bunch of smaller space objects that would also be explained by a big earth planet, going through that, so it was like kind of a confirmation. Their restyle haven't seen the actual planet that we haven't seen the actual planet because it, because it doesn't emit light, and it's very far away space. It's really hard to see. It's funny how that works right. Space is kind of weird words like we can see all the suns and stars, but actually a rock in the nothing really hard to find. So. They're pretty damn store. It's there. And I was reading study that they're also pretty. Dang sure that it's a rope planet that encountered our system. And so they research that New Mexico State University read a bunch of simulations showing that if rogue planet of that I assume they didn't say exactly what the parameter, but. generally of that size and speeds say they say it'll be captured about forty percent of the cases, it would capture that rogue planet, so if a rope came by seems there's a good chance are to sunset. Some could actually catch it. The last bit about the Road Planet being you know quote Unquote earth-like. Is that throw plan? Of course are GONNA have to spend some amount of time completely away from a star so probably not super conducive to life being created, but there's one factor going for us. It's that our oceans are big which saves us again. I guess if trump's offensive rooms. That's blitz and giggles from St us. the University of in Europe geophysicist by name during Abbott. Noted that if you had an earth like planet, though he done so if you had earth and sun, something went out, was his original hypothesis, but if you had an earth like planet away from a son, it would actually become insulated once the outer shell froze, and so if you're oceans are deep enough, which earth just would be, you'd have kind of A. Thick ICESHEET, but underneath that from the heat of the planet. You have enough insulation to keep the ocean below. That ice sheet liquid and you'd have enough energy around to harbor life microscopic life to be fair, but it's a start. Learning! Once we get to our solar system. It starts heating up again and then we can melt the oceans, and then we can have all our good dolphins and whales and giraffes. Get there eventually so basically. We can't get a earth by forming their own system, but we could theoretically steal one from space. Get adopt one. Yeah, that's a better way of putting. It adopted a much much more clean way to say that. I guess that makes us feel less weird about it. Let's see was option vans running around to offering free candy exactly. Chris, what did you? What did you cover now that we have an earth? Even. I looked at the different orbit options that we have because there are a few different configurations that are that we can choose from if we had billion to choose. And the first I looked at was something that Marcus. Was Kinda excited about it I sent it to me. A while ago I, don't know if you remember, but is the figure eight option, and it's a cool option, just because figure cool, and it's not really like something that you think of initially, but if this is possible, I look into what is called the Roche Sphere Cerro Sphere is basically the gravitational influence of an astronomical body so like if you have a planet that's within another plateaus, roasts fear than. Than will orbit around that planet if it's outside than it won't orbit around ill just Kinda do its own thing now in a binary system where there to stars is not Colorado's fear. It's called Rochelle Lobe and it's basically to Ross fears, but they're not really spheres anymore because they influence each other so there instead of circular, they're more teardrop shaped, and like the tips of the teardrop. Sir Touching each other. If you picture that it's basically just like a figure eight. and. If a planet is within one of the sons, Roche lobes than that basically means. Is that the that one plane is GonNa? Orbit and one son that one son, if it's outside of both of the Roche Lobes what's going to happen is it'll revolve around both of the sons as if it was just one son. So. We want to see if that lake inbetween situation where it's not rotating around one, and it's not routine around both, but it's doing figure around both out. We WanNa see if that's possible. Yeah, basically, if they can like skirt both Lobes, and like pass off from one to the next each rotation, right? The word lobe, it's not great. I'm not super happy about this, but we persevere skirt a lobe skirt lobe. Photo? So technically, this is possible physical a figure. Eight orbit is technically possible. It's very very unlikely in. It's very unstable, but if you imagine like basically means that. The planet has to balance exactly on the Roche. Lobe, and if it, if there's any disturbance at all, then it'll either fall into the Roche Lobe, or out of the road slope, and just do one of those other patterns yeah I. Think I think it's important to say when when we say unstable. It's not like it's wobbly. It's like you know shaking. As it goes around with orbit that it's in this shape and small deviations can make just fall right off the shape and do something a totally different a way to visualize that kind of helped me visualize. It was if you imagine the Roche, Lobes if they're like represented by Bolsover. To bowls next to each other, just touching each other, and they're both in a larger bowl, and then you have if a planet is in one of the bowls, that means it's in his first job. Then it'll just circle that one bowl, if it's outside of both of the Bulls inside the bigger bowl than revolve around both the Bulls as if they're just one bill. If, it's in this situation where it's in a figure eight and it's on the Roach, lobe. It's bouncing on the rim of the bowls, so it's possible, but if you like touch it, then it will fall into either small bowl or the big bowl so that that can help you visualize it. Thank you for your Roche. Lobe bull exclamation. How many more words we put onto this and make the best tongue-twister ever skirt push low goal. So. Yeah, it's a cool idea. It's technically possible, but it's not really realistic so I wanted to look at more realistic options, and for that. I looked at just real life examples, so there are examples in real life of binary stars are a lot of them actually, but the closest one to us is and Tori is the closest star system to our solar system. And Allison Tori has three stars in it. There are two stars, Ellison A and B that our son Lake, so they're very similar to the properties over son, and those hormones, their own binary system, and then the third star is allison. Tori see also called Proxima Centauri and this is a small red dwarf, and it's like really far away from An. So they do still think see is technically bound by am be. It just takes a really long time to revolve around them, so they think it takes around five hundred forty seven thousand years to orbit once around these. Still technically part of the solar system, though but what we're more interested in is the binary system that am be form. So likely said they revolve around each other, and when they're closest to each other, they're eleven. Astronomical units away from each other and astronomic unit is. A bit about the distance away from our earth to our Sun Which is about ninety three million miles now at their furthest apart, A and B are thirty five astronomical units apart so it. Their distance varies a little bit, but both of them do have stable habitable zones so technically there could be a planet in there. If there was a planet in their life could form, there is a planet in the solar system her in the star system. It's only there's only one that we've confirmed so far, and it's Proxima Centauri's be, and it revolves around the red dwarf. That's like you're close to the binary system. So it's not really helpful for analyzing binary systems we don't know of any planet in the binary system already around orbiting around Ambi. BUDD simulations showed that a planet could sustain stable or within these habitable zones, and the estimated distances away from these stars for like a habitable planet is from Tori a we would have to be around one to two. Two Astronomical Units and away from be, we would have to be around point seven to one point. Two astronaut could units, so it's actually pretty close distance to what we are from our son right now, and in this. In this scenario, the planet would just orbit around one of the Sun to win orbit around both of them, so be that one bowl scenario. And they called is a non circum binary planet. They also called an s type planet I don't know why I S. I'm sure there's a reason. There are so many letters it's like it's like Alpha Centauri, C B S. Yeah and in this scenario we'd be pretty close to one of the sons, but then since the Sunday eleven astronaut, locking and support. We'd be Kinda far away from the other son. So wouldn't be as dramatic as the picture you see in Star Wars, because one of the sons would be like a tenth of the size, so it's not really imagine so I want to look at other options seeing year closer to we're imagining in star. Wars and the other option is if the planet revolves around both the sun, so the the big bowl situation is called circum binary, and it's also called P. Type Also. Don't know why it's P.. Don't know why it's P. IS IS A. Steak about the aftermath of a lot of fun days. Yeah I. Don't know about fun, but sure well. Let's just go with that. Same example of of circum binary star system is Kepler forty seven. And Forty, seven has a yellow dwarf and a Red Dwarf both revolving around each other. And in this star system, there are actually three planets orbiting both the stars There's Kepler forty seven BC IN D. Don't know whether no. We don't talk about. Not such the accident. They're also kind of like weird order. See The furthest away I think. It's just the way they discover sees a shame to what did to A. Yeah, maybe they found a whole bunch of as men realize that they were finding planets around God's just don't tell anybody, but. Yes, so see is the outermost planet, and it's the only planet that's in the habitable zone of these of the star system, and is a gas giant, so confirming marcus theory about gas giants. But Research Duh resource does show that if there wasn't earth like planet that existed in the habitable zone of these two stars, water could sustain in its liquid form so technically we could have an earth like planet, running to stars and I think that's probably the closest we can get to this. The Star Wars situation with the to rising sons or to setting since whatever Tucson's. Yes so that that's what our orbit looks like we could we have two options? I like the P type better. Where where orbiting both of them? I like the P type better? Strong words! Roche. Lobe Roessler Taif Mary Okay Yeah so Ben. What is what does Earth Look Lake for people living on it? Yeah, so so I was going to look at a few things. I want going down the rabbit hole of just. How hot is going to be pretty far because they want their opinion that lot there, so my gut instinct was if we have two sons, it's GonNa be twice as hot which short answer we pretty much get there eventually sort of but sort of walk into steps to get there. I, I I really to that sentence Ben because I oftentimes have like at the start of my notes on Mike. Here's the main question I'm trying to answer like for me. I have written here. Could Earth formed in the first place and I have written underneath it. Kinda SORTA. Yeah exactly. Like I want the answer. The answer is yes, but we're GONNA get there so first question is how does how does a son effect? The temperature of a planet and really sort of what happens is. The energy from the Sun will hit the planet, and that planets heat up to to counteract that income energy basically right, it's going to balance out the energy emitted by the planet as infrared radiation and the energy coming in sunlight. So we know the amount of sunlight that reaches our current earth from our current son. It's it's roughly one thousand, three hundred sixty one watts per square meter, which hilariously the website I was lucky that said to visualize this imagine lying a small closet with about thirteen or fourteen one hundred watt lightbulbs, which not going to lie doesn't tell me anything. I can't do that I will say this about hundred watt light bulbs though the fact. Is that they are the solway that an easy bake oven functions Oh. Yeah, basically the way the easy bake oven was invented was that hundred watt light is so damn inefficient that you could use the excess heat to cookies. Pretty good so anyway. We have this this amount of incoming energy, so if we take that amount of energy, and we multiply by the cross sectional area of the Earth because that's how much and you know, how much of the earth will be affected by that sunlight at a time, we wind up with one hundred seventy four pedal watson energy. Per this was per second. On How many zero's? That is fifteen zeros, which is a lot so I believe that was per second wait. How do I not have this number here? Hold on a lots generally blossoms per second right. Okay. That's why I thought I didn't have it like fully spelled thought. I did somewhere in my my answer. All right so hundred seventy four. Pedal Watts of energy. So we can use that energy to figure out what the F. expected temperature. Our plant would be basically. We need a couple of things we know how much energy of that is reflected in. How much is absorbed by the planet to do this? We need to get the out beato which. Is basically the amount of energy reflected by an object, and it's usually referring to a planet. So a completely icier snowy planet where it's, it's all white is going to have an close to one hundred percent. We're almost all the lights reflected. If it was completely dark, it'd be close. Zero percent were almost. All the light is absorbed. We know Earth's Albedo. It's about thirty one percent somewhere between because we're definitely not you know full white, but we're not always dark eater. I'm trying really hard, not just here Libido I know the. Exact same thing, not how you're getting yeah. It is it is hilarious, so there was a link between the Dow and how hot it gets, which you're right, it's A. It's a good joke anyway. Right? It's a pretty good show podcast, yeah! There is there is also there's a relationship between the temperature and object and the amount of infrared radiation. It's emitting which this is the Stefan Boltzmann law. Basically that energy flow is a constant. They came up with. That's like five point six seven times ten than minus eight times the temperature to the fourth power. So it scales very quickly with temperatures, you might imagine. And because of that we can use that incoming energy, the Albedo, and that constant to calculate the expected temperature for planet, which Earth gives us two hundred and fifty three point six, Kelvin, which is minus nineteen point, five Celsius, or minus three point one degrees Fahrenheit and you made notice a slight issue here because that is not the average temperature of our planet. Basically. This equation ignores the effects of oceans or atmosphere, just because those very much overcomplicate the the calculation because they will create an equation to tell you the temperature of the planet. It ignores a couple of things, though because it's hard. Astronomers defense, most plants do not have liquid water or atmospheres, and it works pretty well for them in those situations. But. To do was when the reason this happens, is that atmosphere? It'll trap in heat and act until insulation oceans who heat and hold it better than just you know base air will. So I basically took our expect temperature and the actual average temperature of the planet, which as a nineteen was about fifty eight point, one seven degrees Fahrenheit, or fourteen point, eight five degrees, Celsius and I I use the ratio between those two get a constant. That was say sort of at least for our planet. What the effect of our atmosphere and oceans is on that temperature so I found that are actual temperature is about thirteen point five percent higher than the expected. We get from that calculation I. Just used that going forward to you. Know correctly atmosphere and oceans basically. So. How hot could our planet get before? We're definitely going to die, so I'm going to be clear. We would die before this number because of just Ri- heat, but this is where life could not form any more on earth, which this is the point, it's GonNa actually happen in about one point one billion years, and what happened is the average global temperatures gonna hit fifty degrees Celsius which is one hundred twenty degrees Fahrenheit. And at this point, the oceans will be so warm. They start evaporating without boiling. And once that water vapor is just in the atmosphere, the UV light from the Sun will split those water molecules and a hydrogen in the mold out in the space, and you need that hydrogen to form leading cells so. That's the point where we definitely cannot have life on earth anymore. So the question is if we had two sons, and they were both current son sized. Would we still have life on earth. That calculation again. Having to gives us twice the energy, so instead of having. What was it one thousand, three hundred sixty one watts per square meter? It's two thousand, seven, hundred, twenty to watch for square meter and work through it, and you wind up with an ESA temperature of eight point, five Celsius, which addressed to sixty nine point, three degrees, Celsius or one hundred fifty six degrees Fahrenheit after doing that same atmosphere c constant, so yes, we have on earth to current son size sons. It just would not work. Conveniently, there was a way around this. So there is a link between the mass of a star and its luminosity, which is obvious. Is that amount of energy coming out of it? And that link, we use it sort of in terms of our own sun, which is convenient for our purposes right here and it's it's the ratio between the mass of that theoretical star and the mass of our Sun. race three point fifth power so assan twice as big of ours going to have about eleven point three times the luminosity, Assan half as big have about point zero eight times I'm GonNa City so obviously have to throw a little bit there, and it works out that if you have two sons with eighty two percent of the mass of Our sun, you wind up with about half luminosity for each of them, and therefore the same store energy total, so if we had two sons that were eighty percent of of our current son, things be actually basically the same one other cool thing about this. We are so close to gain orange sons of Yellow Sun. A stars. Color Base Mass. And the Yellow Star ranges, eighty percent, the massive are two hundred and four percent, so we're just short of dropping to orange sons. Inspire that one thing we would get. The massive star does also a terminus lifetime. which it's because the mass of a star is how much fuel it has, and you might think. Oh, so a big a big star means last long time, but it also determines how hot it burns, and it burns through much more quickly than the extra fuel you get. So the numbers I saw a son with our son has lifetime about ten billion years a son with seventy five percent, the massive our son. We have a lifetime of twenty one billion years, so we get some extra time, not quite how that but little bit before you know our sun. Turns into a red giant, and we all die from that. Yeah. I did see a cool thing actually is apparently scientists are starting to look more if they're looking for life on other planets, they used to always look for. You. Know Yellow Sons, because that's what we have. And they figured that was the best bet, but they're actually trying to look more at or sons because they're pretty close. luminosity wise, but because they had that extra time, it gives life time to form, so it's more likely that you know the conditions. We'll be right somewhere in that billions of year pie span for life to actually form. So? That's kind of cool thing. I saw there and then finally I also look somewhat into whether or not. He looked like. I had that same thought. And on sheer luminosity, it's not really gonNA work unfortunately. I couldn't somehow you can find like random detail about star wars somewhere. Usually I could not find officially. What the colors of the sons of tattooing are you? Can you dislike? Take screen shot of it. Well the problem is the problem is there's like three categories are yellow, yellow, white, and white, and that goes from eighty percent. Are Our sons math mass, two hundred and ten percent or sons mass? Those three categories and I can't tell exactly where where they fall. As far as I can tell, one of them definitely looks read the other one looks. It looks white, but a white star requires at least one hundred and forty percent of the our mass, and that would give like over three times when we when Aussie, which would bake us immediately, so that clearly can't be right. We'd be a desert planet. Right exactly. Yeah but no, it would like. Burn to center. It would not actually work. I did it assuming yellow, white and red? and. You can get if you do like the smallest yellow White Star and biggest Redstar you wind up with twenty percent more luminosity than our current sun, which would give an average temperature of like eighty two degrees Fahrenheit, which is a lot higher than what we have now still. So it would technically be livable, but it would probably be a planet so I'm going to say that's probably what is tattooing is a yellow. White Star Red Star and we could technically get there, but it would be pretty bad. It would be incredibly unlikely, because not only would. You'd have to have exactly the right size, sons. You would also have to capture the road planet. This is also true. Yeah Tattoo Win could exist. It is going to be the most unlikely planet ever Yep. And that's basically what I have is is we could? We could have a two stars sewer system if we had to eighty percent of our current son sons. which is better than I expected it to go actually. Yes son. Chris, yes, are you ready for a? Would you rather question I, am? Would you rather have to ride a horse or a unicycle to work every day for a week only for a week only for horse or a UNICYCLE I feel like I'd be bad on both of them. I've never ridden her UNICYCLE before. I have ridden a horse, but it was only once, and it was like a very very tame horse. And I felt as to control. Like I had no control at all all right on ease of getting to and from work, the answer is clearly horse. However, there's another aspect to this. which is you have to store both of them while you're at work and it's much easier to store. You'RE GONNA. Cycle, then store a horse. Which one's easier can you like? Having no real horsing experience. Can you lead a horse to work? Yes, but you can't make them work. Bent Ben have you. Renault's before I've ridden a horse before. I don't like very much, but I have done it, but you would probably be able to get to work. I could. I could probably get to work. So the other thing, too, is that I I work about twenty five miles away? I don't particularly want a UNICYCLE twenty five miles. So I think I might be locked in on this one because. The thing is it's only a week if it was longer than you might a learn some of these better, but like a twenty five mile bike ride as a pretty long bike ride. Yeah, and I'm saying. I'm saying affects both them as fixed a UNICYCLE and the horace. Probably, won't be able to learn how to ride. A UNICYCLE horse would probably be easier to learn I'd imagine so yeah. Maybe not I wonder I wonder how much of knowing her a bike transfers to unicycle. There's a lot of balance that I like very unicycle specific. Yeah, I, also live in a kind of hilly area I'm scared of UNICYCLING on a hill. UNICYCLE I have never tried Unicycle I've never I have not tried to Unicycle I kind of want to now though I feel like I would just follow immediately. Yeah, well at the. Things are once you're moving like it's much easier to balance time moving. I am much more terrified. Okay well, he's cycles. It's really easy to hop off a UNICYCLE. Yeah? Okay Right, I accept your point. I guess failing, Annita cycle is less dangerous. Feeling on a horse, is it? I mean yes falling off a horse just by itself into you pretty bad. Fall off a horse you're you're much less like if off hours, but if you do then, it's more dangerous. I'm say what you want to like. Break in the Horse, I assume. You know. It a trains like writable horrors right? Catching a wild stallion breaking him. The wilds. So there is there is there is the thing about because it's just a week. The inconvenience of dealing with a horse for a week fun for that first week. I think I. YOU'RE GONNA have to like. Get food delivered to your work and your home. Yet, no, you have to do a bunch of Shit, but like you have a fragging horse that you're yeah. I I think I think the answer is. So. Okay for my situation. Clearly, the answer has to be horse like I. Put that out there now. There's just no way I can't say horse with the distance to go to work if we're adjusting for like if you work. I don't know what's a good distance five miles away. I'm two miles from where so two miles less I'm less than a mile, so let's say let's say two miles how it wait. Hold on how fast can unicycle go. Imagine a bike speed. Yeah I'd never seen anyone. Try to like speed UNICYCLE fast as is always like tricks, the average speed for a twenty engineer cycles five miles per hour. So that's pretty sleds. Let's say it's it's a twenty minute trip to work on a UNICYCLE which would be. Like yes, two to three miles right yeah. Somewhere twenty three miles so around Marcus Commute, so it's like a twenty minute unicycle ride. or I'm going to guess shorter horse ride right. You can just you can just have the horse. Block That's not hard. You can do that Gallup it I. Mean I've never galloped a horse before. The one time I did it was walking yeah. I guess it's not hard like walk horse. A horse walks around four miles per hour. That's a comparable speed, anyway slightly slow at the one time. I did it. It was like the Horse Lake in new its path it does this all the time, so just walked its path I didn't do anything. I mean I guess you do have to deal with the fact that you're going to be in the city Chris I could at least out in the burbs logo more yet. I'm right in the city. I don't know storage would definitely a huge issue for me? Yeah can't tied by bike. Ride can Kanye know. Man I don't know so I feel like. If you correct for distance, the answer is unicycle because. The story in a horse is just a lot. It's a lot involved. There I agree riding riding horses better storing a UNICYCLE. Yeah, so it's just which which which I think that the horse storage enough worse than UNICYCLE stores I have to go unicycle of pseudo after go like twenty five miles. I think it's very dependent on your individual situation where the need to store, or you need to travel easier. Yeah, but but I think even even assuming you like have a home and like a backyard storing a horse. It's like a lot of work right? Yeah, like it's not. It's not just I have a space. Right can fit a horror so I'm good. Right but like legally I don't know where to put the Horse in the city. So think about that statement I hadn't thought about a hilarious problem. Where can they legally keep a horse I mean? There are some horses in Boston I. Don't know where they keep right. You gotta find like like one of those places like this story. Course tie-ups layer. They have the horse wagons yell or like some places will have like so sometimes. A feature on curbs I haven't seen any in Boston but I. see in picks of online recently where it's like a little. Little metal half circle like coming up out of the curb would tie up your horse if you you know. Road your horse to the bar. Are Actually doing that pretty often so I think if you find a old horse tie up. You are allowed to tire horse, too. Because like what they got arrest, you be like. What did you tell your up here for a while? There's a horse tie. Mike. The thing designed horses. What do you mean I can't use it and they're like that's athletic. I suppose to know that there's no sign so apparently it is legal to ride a horse on the street in Boston, except for unlimited access highways. It's legal to ride it, but is it legal park? You must be a little park it somewhere I don't. I don't know. I can't say. Just Sarah just texted me from the other room. Saying it's called a hitching post. I don't know I. CAN'T I'm literally trying to Google like horse laws in Boston right now and just having trouble. Let's the having. They probably have like rent, a storage area or something for the people that do have horses in Boston because there are few. I'm sure you could find a stable of some sort in Boston where you can keep your horse for some mountain. It's only a week, says not worth getting that a feel. You probably have to though I guess I'd have to. You then you have to commute to your horse to commute to work. That's true. You Take Your Unicycle to your horse to. To work, so so I think I think at this point. We've reached a point where we can make our decision right? Yeah, I know I'm choosing. For my personal commute, or can I use the theoretical five mile commute do theoretical Ben Right. Chris you're I. Though I was to use my own my own situation, and according to my situation I think I'd have to go with unicycle just because storage is so tough. Even if I can find legal solution where like rent some storage unit or something can be really expensive, and it's only for week, but is going to be a huge hassle for that one week, and not gonNA learn how to ride a unicycle within that one week probably going to fall a lot by not to go far I only have to go less than a mile so. I mean I don't really mind doing that just a week. Yes, very. So the situation I'm in is that if it's my actual commute, it's GonNa. Take me at least five hours each way to commute UNICYCLE. So I think I've locked into a horse, however, assuming I can scale down to like a you know. Three Ish Mile Commute I would far farther to even on a Horse So I guess that puts me in a vacuum team UNICYCLE, but personally my own situation on team horse, so make of that what you will. So for me, I, think end up in the spot where? I think the UNICYCLE is the less inconvenient answer in probably would be the better week. Generally, but I think I'M GONNA. Pick just because again the week after you've do this. Do you won't be known as the guy who wrote a UNICYCLE for week or the guy who like well? Why don't you have like a horse that week? Like? I did for funsies. So I, think I would rather have the experience of having a horse for a week. Then a UNICYCLE together tests tougher the story. Yeah, having a horse for a week a story having your cycle for Mrs. Look like a quitter, so it's having a UNICYCLE per week. A for. Failed Cry for help. You couldn't even commit to that. Would actually will now I really do want to try a UNICYCLE at some point, but alas my I doubt I'll have much opportunity. High, By one. Not doing that. We're probably not that expensive.

HR 2: Reunited, and it feels so good!

"Saddam with here on. ESPN streaming September Fourth Disney's new movie. Moulin. Available to Disney plus subscribers who unlocked premier access. L. Zia's you, and I have reunited here in the afternoon. Good. It does feel so good There has been a farewell recently. And it's not just keyshawn even though we will have him it at five thirty. He will join us but a farewell from the world. Fast. Food, Taco Bell has announced today it is eliminating five more menu items including the beloved Mexican Pizza. Did you call her beloved? That's what it says here in the store. 'cause. Very, many people beloved it it it it I wasn't a huge fan I'm not a huge Taco Bell Person Anyway. Especially when you live in a town like come la were I can go You know ten minutes from my house. In Harbor City and go to Tacos Galore show or something like that or do we can go to Mexico I mean you can't do that yes, there is that. When I lived in Pasadena. There was A. Great spot it was a truck called Las California tacos. And it was on fair oaks and it was fantastic I used to go there all the time when I lived in Pasadena and there was another place. In Pakistan that was great. I used to go to called last three at tackles. Show like there's a million places here and I feel like Laura is Laura's Laura and I are on the same boat here. We are very much offended by anyone who goes to Taco Bell if you live here in southern cal. To. Be a Latino officially yes. Among Tina. I'm actually looking at the plaque. You guys gave me right now you woke up early. I haven't been to talk building years. Yep. Like I've ever since I moved to La. Seaney Taco Bell just makes me wonder like crash into it and stay stop. What are you doing my spot in Silverlake Diablo's Diablo's had like this pork belly. But a Taco, thing that I used to just just saying in right now after swallow because my mouth watering so I do not care if TACO bill adjust its entire menu I'm not eating that when I e something authentic. Yeah I. Agree. That's just kind of the way it is Laura tell people because I remember. If we I bet you buy open up the phones right now we will have Latino people who will blaspheme and say that Taco Bell is good. I think Manuel from Gardena is like Taco Bell everything I I know I remember that but. I. It was so horrifying shows like what I mean Greg, Liking del Taco, Taco Bell Okay I get it. I don't like Taco Bell. Don't put me in that Taco Bell World. Del Taco the whole story. Up But. Now, more a you're actually not even a fan of King Taco Aching Taco man and I told you, I told the owner that 'cause I know them by a hate now there though people but I don't like King Taco because it's like. It's like a local fast food Taco chain. TACO. Bell, which is a little different. I won't say this though. As much as I'm not a fan of the food, I still love the commercials they get special are excellent. Yeah, right? Yeah. They do get the marketing the marketing. Yeah. That you WANNA was. Eight seven seven seven SPN do you partake in some Taco Bell while living here? Like you'd be, you should be you should get your card revolt, right your southern California cars. Especially you're Latino Card revoked if you are hitting up Taco Bell Eight, seven, seven, seven, ten, ESPN L Z before I went to break and welcome back obviously I was teasing a former Laker rip the organization but specifically, one of the Laker greats in Magic Johnson. Diangelo Russel was on the JJ redick podcast and was. From. Former LAKER number two overall pick the Angela Russell. He was asked if he ever took any of his traits personally and he says quote Hell Yeah bleep only La because Magic Johnson kicked me in my ass on the way out and I didn't understand that I was kinda young and naive to why and what was the point of him doing it that way do you believe the magic did the Angelo wrong in the way he discussed remember it was a lot of we needed leadership and the Point Guard Position Lonzo will provide that it was a lot of shade. There was wasn't shade. It was a spotlight. Okay. Wasn't being subtle about it and he didn't do him wrong. He did him a favor he did him a favor. Because listen. De Ngelo Russell is a talented offensive basketball player I love the fact that he's a lefty. You know like diversity that's diversity I like his confidence now. He didn't work hard and he wasn't a leader. And I'm sorry that issue pulled. With you know, Iggy, Azalea. That doesn't sound like somebody you want to your locker room right and he needed to own up to that in a real way and I, don't think he ever did. So, as much as they might have hurt to be jettisoned out of La there is a reason why you're already on your thirteen, Bra. And it's not because of free agency. Because fourteen by the way, this is fourteen young break, your La Net Brooklyn Ordinance State. Late and now how come on Dog Utah Magic. If magic if you ever say magic, Johnson's name again you better say thank you. That's what you should be saying. Yes, because he actually played really well in Brooklyn, he's an all star Yeah I mean he celebrity all star team he was added later I believe. Yes. Yeah. Which is fine, which is fine which. Resume and listen. I. Certainly. There's an argument. I could have been made that at the end of the day when we think about who he was traded to make room for he's the better player. But and he's probably now has developed into the better leader. So. There is an argument to be made that Magic Johnson traded away the better player to draft a lesser player but it was because of all the things that he was doing as a Laker that magic kinda didn't have a choice I don't believe the Angelo would have been an all-star had he stayed a Laker? I don't believe he would have I, believe he would have worn out his welcome anyway. So be moved early has put a chip on his shoulder and if he uses that to become a better player and become the leader that magic want it, then he should be thanking him for it. He didn't favor eight, seven, seven, seven ESPN do you believe the Angelo would have become an all star here in La do you think it would have worked out? Here a either way eight, seven, seven, seven, ten, ESPN, eight, seven, seven, seven, ten, three, seven, seven, six weeks people that want to weigh in on the dodgers discussion real quick that you miss that are you are you in on the extra innings rule now? Has It grown on you? It's grown on me no all we love it now I'm in no no no you know. Maybe if I was still like on the morning show with. Key, and Travis and I had to get up really early. Maybe I will love it. But now I'm like, hi, what does that have to do it because the Games go on and on and on and on I gotta get up at four thirty five o'clock in the morning and it's kind of his earlier more times than not because of the rule what that's what I'm saying I was like maybe if you know if all I learning show.

For AAC YOU WHOA look at that, smack. Smack I like the way he dipped out as soon as you said, some BS. Thank you look at that smack Bergman. Bergman. I mean he's has a right to his opinion he's framing. Fernando Tons Juniors probably. I mean, in the top two for an MVP right now. Yes. Correct and Elza S. and L.'s you didn't hear this part of the conversation I was saying that. Fernandes teach Totti's junior is one of the best players in baseball this year but I'm not putting him top three in the game right now. It's too early to early I mean if he's a top to an MVP candidate, you think it's way too early to make him a top three baseball player this year. This year. Overall the love of God I mean we're. If you want to argue that Greg I, mean. If you just said. Me Hold on you just said Greg he's a top two and L. You agreed top to NL. MVP candidate right now through thirty eight, game thirty, eight, Thirty, eight game. So how is he not about nine player? This is you're talking about a sixty game season. It's not the same. Okay. All right. You sound like Stephen as saying that Damian Lillard, the best player in the bubble. No. Street that is way different way way different I mean the guy lead the guy lead the league in a ton of categories right now who cares he's twenty one he ain't done nothing yet. Oh, my God. What is he doing? He's twenty one and he's ripping the game apart. That's what he's done. He's twenty one. He's having a hot start to his career. That's what he's done. Okay. All right.

One more real quick because we gotta go keyshawn here in a second Eric in La Eric. What's going on fellow? Man. Yeah. I'm kind of piggyback of the other man is not you know you can't compare Taco struggles to Taco bill and I think what Mexicans are love Taco bill so much is because you've got to understand late eighties early nineties you could've walked to the corner talk now we've got them everywhere back. Then you had to drive east delay or something you know Boyle Heights to get. Locals I remember having to drive out there for like an authentic Taco. So we have to settle for Huckabee not so you can't blame us it's not dodgy Finn and twist like all that and plus like you say the marketing was awesome I remember shack even have some little thing going on with them so and keep Tacos is awesome to saw sorry law you can't lacking TACO. Laura it's I. Mean I get it I. Guess It's not authentic like I said but keep with talk the St Louis and historical central for a reason you know. All right buddy. Thank you for the call stay safe stay healthy I where to get the keyshawn here in the second. We'll ask Sean about his Taco his favorite Taco. Spots. In La in a second? Obviously, we'll talk some football. We'll talk some Lakers with him and his PAC twelve news. The PAC twelve could be back playing sports here very soon we'll get to all that key in a second. All right. So Ki Ki is going to join us here. Now key, what is the what are the LEGIT TACO SPOTS IN LA? Give me Keyshawn legit TACO spots in La. Like like street Taco like whatever you want when you hear Tacos what do you think? Where are you running? To. Go. To. I'M GONNA go to Sola Luna. In William. Hill Stars Zana. Okay. Okay. I'm. GonNa go to Tito tacos. In La on benefits and on supposedly in Washington. Sure And then I got then I got some small. Like independent places that I would go to. We'll give aims hook them up. I don't know the name of. They just they just know when you arrive Mr Keyshawn how are you sir? Why are you guys asked that? We were talking about it because we is in the news that Taco Bell decided to take the Mexican pizza off their menu. So that's what got us on. Yeah that data that's not That's not real. Mexican food man. According to some of the Mexicans who've clients so they call it is. Really they defended it. Now. We don't have any verification at their Mexican or not. They just tell us just saying how. Ever eaten a Taco Bell Mexican Pizza. The TACO Supreme Tacos Burritos, Saul cream and onion and a little kameido in it. Yeah. I've done all that but the Taco pieces no man no I haven't done that either but I've done a little elections. A. Little. Chiluba. Oh. Hey key how many games Lakers gonNA GONNA, win the series in. I think they I think they would've cry. Is Picking on the way. He is going to lead the way. Man Stop. Lead that guy alot man I think. At the end of the day. Yeah. I. Think they go. They go away from that philosophy. In the regular season where we tried to play small ball with big. And we got run up and down the court instead of allowing Anthony. Davis Lebron James and Dwight Howard. mcghee. Dominate understand training to for three is not great math but at the end of the day, if you knocking down them to. And you get filed because they can't do anything else with you at the line you hit your free throws. You'RE GONNA get three points out of that. and. So I look for Frank Vogel and that crew to play big ball and let Anthony Davis get on the blocks against you know. Six five six seven type guys that got to try to defend them winkler's. Assuming that the Lakers do easy to dismiss this team that did not look very good for much of the series they just had with okay. See and moves needs to be made. Are you trading harden or are you trading? Westbrook. Who are you going to keep if you had had only one? Now May I ask you who's the coach though right who who's the coach if it's tied Lou and his philosophy is such. That both of those guys coexist coexistent work together. Then you try to keep them If you try to move them. I probably would just move westward. And try and get hardened. Go Back to plan the way he played in okay. See when he wasn't the main focal point in this Mike Dan Tony System he's allowed to shoot the basketball as many times as he's been doing because he's a prolific scored there's no question about it but clearly when he was with Kevin Durant and Westbrook and in part perk in those guys, they played a different style and he was effective at doing that I don't think you can win. A national NBA title with him being the guy that's dropping forty points on your night. Qui Do you believe though that? That this, this series will will force the Lakers to maybe play Anthony Davis more at center because I think that they're there'd they're at their best when he decides to do that and I feel like he seems reluctant at times I mean I don't think it seems I mean he's talked about it but I feel like that. This is a series where we're going to see a lot less Dwight Howard Javale McGee. What do you think? The. I think that's true to a degree but again, we don't WanNA play. Spe- ball, Houston, rockets pay up and down speed of. Temple. And in order to slow the temple you WANNA, put those big on the floor. Now you say, whatever just bring them out and they don't pull the threes. Okay. Well, bring him out because what we can't do like I said before Georgia's go. And play, basketball game the way we did. Several months ago in a regular season when they handed us or lunch, you allow Anthony Davis to be Anthony Davis and I don't think he will be reluctant in a role that he knows that I helped the team win by going on the block tonight you could call it the five you can call it before but put his butt on the block how you Know in in let him go to work on a six seven, six, five type James Harden in in in Pisa Tucker going to be the ones that are going to have to guard you know and what? What what is a sixty seven, seven feet I mean wink fan puts him at eight feet tall maybe ten feet tall like these are small compared to him. Key I I want to switch toppings briefly only because this is a very serious subject to your expertise can really shed some light. There was a professor at George Washington, university. Who was teaching African American history? And apparently for years, she has been pretending to be black, but she's actually just a white woman for the city. Are. We at the point now where that's okay. Sushi she keep her job key should be dismissed because she lied about being black. Okay. Let me ask you this. I don't know all the details. Let me ask you fit. This she lie about being black because she wanted to teach the subject. Or did she or did she? Not Really, know. Her race is she learned through one of those test kits. I. Mean like I I need a little more context. In looks as if she belied in order to get financial support from cultural institutions in order to help her write her book and do her studies as she was building her career. Okay. Now, I'm looking at her. Looking at her Patriot seats, she probably should be removed. Of Her duties at George Washington University. Because she played the system in which you probably shouldn't have. You would've told me that she did it because she really wanted to teach African American studies and and it was. You know she just felt she could identify more than yeah. But if she was doing it for financial gain, then she should probably be fire. You Okay so I just think it's hilarious. She's from Kansas City. Didn't that happen with the lady and nwpp All those. All exactly. Dulles all also you know. But this young lady from from from Gw University does she look? Oh. Okay. So I'm assuming she's a fair skin looking. Woman opposed to a Dorky and like me. She's more Klay Thompson. Draymond. Green. Right. Michael Thompson and Klay Thompson and she is me yet. Yes, this is correct. This is correct. Well she probably should lose their job if she did it for economic gain. Okay enough key speaking of universities PAC twelve the news came out earlier today could return sooner with a partnership allowing the implementation of rapid covid nineteen testing that could be done in fifteen minutes, and there's talk about potentially now playing football even as early as November and hooking up with the big ten, maybe a lining their schedules. How surprised are you about this new development? I'm not totally surprised about it because. They've not always be ongoing research in anything can happen at any given moment. So I'm not surprised by even though they shut it down just because you shut something down doesn't mean it is gone forever I. Mean we see. People. Close things they're going to reopen things and closed the they're going to reopen things going to revisit it I think. Getting everybody all in a tizzy is that. PAC. Twelve in the big ten didn't wait. They just went ahead and did it oppose to waiting it out which I'm fine with? but I'm not fine with keep trying to push the issue playing I just I don't know just. Why don't you? Just Leave it alone till next year man from trauma to play you got all these kids. You jerky need kids around by we're GONNA play. We're not GONNA play. We're GONNA play. We're not GONNA play I. Don't know what we're doing. Like stopping already enough. You know you confusing these kids kids that are opting out to get ready for the NFL. Now, all of a sudden you're GONNA play. This it's too much. If they were to to say, let's go ahead and let's do this. As a parent of a young man who played high school ball, would you let keyshawn junior play this year I probably Would depending on what the guys in the white long jackets with the pins in the pockets tell me which are the doctors, the MD's scientists what are they telling me? What are the long term effects what I need to Kim formation I need to I need to know I don't need to listen to football coaches and athletic directors. I need to talk to the scientists and learn the long-term effects of Kogi nineteen. You know what are the chances I I need more information Now if one of the professors. was discovered pretending to be blackmore's actually Change reminded all. Wait one more time. If one of the professors. Discovered to actually have been white but was pretending to be black all this time. Would that change your mind? Crazy. Stupid. No. I. Wouldn't change my mind for that. I need to know. I need to talk to the people like, docker. Faouzi on these talk to those type of people. You know. In in in learn. LEARN LEARN ABOUT I. More. Messing with you. He's messing with you. You didn't hear. It's the same question. He asked you about the lady at Georgetown GW whatever. I mean look I. I don't know if she'd black white I don't know a professional will be black or white I just know that I need to talk to the doctor. Okay. What they do done deal. Kisha Judson. George the Donald and Lt, granderson. It's okay to play sports spread in terms terms spreaders, in fact, the sports. Well let me tell you something. All you do is talk to germs betters. Now every morning, I listened to that damn show. The where where are you complaining about those germs spreaders you talked to every morning his guests. A, little different. Bit that the. Germ spreader but there's no question about it. But as if you noted, I never include myself in the media. Curry's. Key, we'll talk to you next week man. A. Good teach on Jalen Zubin every morning five nine here on the station. He's going to join US every week at five thirty on Thursdays so. Maybe, we'll switch it around because there may be laker games and stuff like that will have to figure some stuff out l. you and I can talk about the PAC twelve a little bit. We got a short segment coming up plus I've got a movie debate for you. I will ask the audience real quick if you want to line up right now eight, seven, seven, seven, ten years be at eight, seven, seven, seven, three, seven, seven, six, are you with Kishan? That the PAC twelve should just shut it down and not jerk the kids around any more about playing and not playing in this that and the other I want to talk to the audience at Eight, seven, seven, seven, ten ESPN. So we'll do that. We'll take your calls. We got what you need to know all of it coming up in three minutes time for what you need to know. We begin with an NBA game update L Z Granderson, and we have the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors tied at eighty five with just under nine minutes to go the gutty little raptors trying to defend their title trying not to go down three zero. What do you make of what you've seen those far while I'm waiting to see what the reps are going to do my friend because pass up a night have been defined by referee blunders as much as great play. Hopefully, they don't get involved in this and we get to see something go down to the wire I. Still Think the Boston Celtics are going to pull this out there just shooting the ball better and eventually you know the the scrapping they Toronto back into is going to run out and they won't have to make some good shots and that's not happening for them tonight. Yeah. It isn't. They've done a better job in the second half of hitting shots. They were putrid in the first half and. Yet Putrid, they've shot twenty one percent in the first half they're up to thirty percent now. So that means they're shooting a little better in the well over twenty one to thirty over a span of a quarter at least a couple more shots you know what I mean. So they're eating about a third of their shots if they can get to thirty five I think they can win but it just they haven't even gotten there. Any of these games those far that's kind of the key place right if if you want to win an NBA game, so we've got that. What is happening in the US? Open. Today that we should keep an eye on. What is happening you'll what is already had happened. What has happened happened was Francis Tearful. Out of Maryland african-american brother. Came back from two down from band down two sets to one came all the way back one in a fifth set and the reason why you want to pay attention to him is because for so long American men have not been able to win a major championship and has been my belief is because we're not sending our best athletes are best athletes in different sports when. You Look at France Chiro Oh you look at somebody could have been a football player, a basketball player chose tennis and the ATHLETICISM is really showing. He had a great run last Australian Open, and hopefully this year he can at least get to the semi-finals of the US Open to give them hope going forward. There you go. All right. Cool. So that's what's going on there. In the NBA Jaama Rant, the rookie of the Year Zion finished third behind Ken Kendrick Nunn. What is your level of surprise there that Young Zion finished third in the vote I'm shocked that the voters actually used their heads and not their hearts. If they were using their hearts. They would at least make Zion second because he's degray story. He's the one one's talking about Blah Blah, Blah Blah Blah. Right your hair told you that the do play like twenty gains. And you can't be rookie of the year. You didn't make it at least half a year. Yeah. No, that's fair. That was the same debate they had during the Joel Embiid your remember Malcolm Brogden won the rookie of the year that year. Now Look Malcolm Brogdon, is a nice player. I think John is legitimately a franchise player. Who Do you think? Let's say they're both healthy. Who Do you think has the the bigger impact John Mirant or Zion? Boy. 'cause the health thing with the big issue because when I see Zion I hear, I see injuries I'M GONNA say Zion's going to have the better career if they're both healthy but I don't believe. Unfortunately, Zion going to be able to stay healthy. Okay. Fair enough look I think that that's a big question, right? I don't think there's any doubt about that. He looked great before they went into the bubble. Then he had to leave the bubble for a family issue and then he looked a little lethargic I thought at times. I was trying to be much kinder than you clearly but he was a little authority. Okay but he towards the end of the stoppage right in March? You could see what everyone else saw God. He was like Whoa you know Oh God. Yeah. But here here's the big concern for me. It's his gate. He has a weird gate and I think it's because he's knock-kneed or he's pigeon toed, and that's going to be wear and tear on your joints. Particularly your knees with that kind of weight in the amount of time that he explodes off the ground. That's the reason concern about his health. Well, that's I mean remember I did the story I did his Christmas game and I. Did the story because I spoke to him about them in theory teaching him to walk differently and run differently and all that stuff. It's gotten a little better. It's not as pronounced as it once was but you're right there. That is absolutely a thing he said to me then during Christmas that it is a thing that they get on him about. So you are one hundred percent right about that. Lastly here the Nintendo switch. I bought one for my daughter last year. To Release Classic Morio Games. Now it's only GonNa be a limited time. You can only buy them from the Nintendo e shop or at retailers until March of twenty twenty one. What is your favorite? Mario Game. DA, man I'm not in my bag on this question really you didn't play Mario Brothers and back in the day. Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Mario game it is. Yeah. I guess there wasn't Mario then yeah donkey Kong is donkey Kong Junior. Oh Donkey Kong Junior. Junior. Yeah. Now you know they have diddy Kong to. Sean Puffy. No not. No did he I think diddy. Kong. is also one of the children I believe if I recall correctly. I actually have gotten back into Mario Games because we get, we get those kind of games from my six year old and we let her play them on the weekends and. which we have like daddy daughter of video game time. Every Saturday and yeah, some of those games. Hard. Harder than they were when I was a kid that's for sure. Yeah you know it's like I don't know at which point I cannot identify which year I stopped playing video games, but this isn't like riding a bike. Zone? No you gotta play by play man. Yeah. Yeah for sure. I think there's any question I still play playstation occasionally I'll play like the sports games. I don't play any of the other games. Like I play to K. I. play bad in occasionally different gangs. You know what I mean like play those kind of games but I don't get to play my own video games very much anymore usually will play with my daughter like I said, every Saturday we set aside like an hour or two and just play, and then that's pretty much it but it is fun. It is fun. For sure that's what you need to know. So. L Z dreaming steps September fourth. Let's not forget Disney's new movie Milan experience the legend of Milan, as she fights to defend her family and the Kingdom of Italy Disney plus subscribers when lock the premier access by the way Clinton Yates will join us at six fifteen and Marc Spears will join us at six forty. Yup so the Big News Marc Spears had the news of Steve Nash going to Brooklyn. We'll talk to him about that will ask them thoughts on the Lakers and the rockets as well. We'll get into the Lakers rockets or Clinton and his thoughts on. The Major League Baseball Trade deadline that happened earlier this week Clinton obviously a huge baseball fan like us. So we'll get a lot of that stuff in with Clinton but the PAC twelve stuff L. Z. Keyshawn said. I'll open up the phones at eight, seven, seven, seven, ten, ESPN, eight, seven, seven, seven, three, seven, seven, six he said, maybe they should stop jerking the kids around about playing not playing maybe they should just forget about it and just move forward. Now Look in theory I agree with him but I think we both impracticality because of the finances right that it's going to be hard to probably make that happen I just think that. As a society we've already crossed that moral threshold is that fair to say Well I mean. It's hard for me to Blaine Right. Conference directors. Kicked can I pause for one second I need to do this read here my apologies i. don't mean to cut you up. Go ahead. I'm sorry. I've guy was saying not as a joke. Back yes. I it's hard for me to put all the blame on conference directors, university presidents, eighties, coaches when you have parents and students themselves also saying we WANNA play. So I think actually by seeing that that gave some of those after mention names or positions of bit of cover if you will because they can from a moral standpoint go hey, they wanNA play like we're not making them play for a revenue they WANNA play and we're trying to honor their wishes. Now we both know that it's not as if they're going to resist. A parent wanting to play or resist students wanting to play and stand up and say, no, not always too much risk or hours. You're not GONNA do that. But I think when you start to see petitions, go around and rallies happening it leased masive feasible to say, Hey, we try to do the right thing but the students and parents they want to take the risk. Yeah. So what do you do in that spot right? It just puts everyone in a compromising position. That's why I wanted to talk to the audience because we all not not all of us but a lot of people listening right have kids, and if you're in that spot, what do you do? You know what I mean like how do you handle it I I've said if it were my kids I'd be like now we're good this year just you know it is what it is. Now because this is the way I look at it if your kid is good enough to play in the pros. It's probably GonNa Happen Anyway you know what I'm saying like I. Mean if they're legitimate like star level type player in college that means that chances are whether it's Basketball or football they're going to get that opportunity in some way shape or form, and I think that scouting is show. More advanced than it's ever been in these professional sports that I think that look it's not say they don't guys don't fall through the cracks or don't fall through the cracks but. For the most part. These. People end up in the right places and look if it's just like they're just a good athlete, but they don't have aspirations to become pros. Then you know what? We we did a whole campaign. Right US here on this station you know. Boss Betty pantsuits came up with it. It was a great job where we talked we did the senior shoutouts right where these poor kids had to deal with the high school situations right and every even college we talk some college kids. So it's it's just it's an unfortunate symptom of the Times right because of what we're dealing with and I think that life isn't always fair and part of being a parent means you got have tough conversations with your kids. Absolutely, and the way life isn't fair. Sometimes, you have to have tough conversation with those parents to correct. As I said, his parents who are also out there saying, Hey, let us play as if they're out there in the fields right and I get it. You know my son was a you know captain of his track team in high school had a division. One scholarship offers to run track I was very much looking forward to see him doing that he chose not to. And I had to grow up and respect his wishes and so I understand you know the idea that you know maybe people feel as if it's always about the students but sometimes it's the parents who are living vicariously through their kids or who just want to see their kids out there. So they can brag they to need to chill out a little bit and go listen. You're not really factoring in all of the risks now if I was a university president. Or if I was a conference president or director I would be turning to my legal team. And having them come through all of the potential pitfalls and I wouldn't make it a moral argument. I wouldn't challenge a whether or not You know parents have a right to protest or students had a right to petition and say we WANNA play I was simply say to my board of directors and trustees that we can expose ourselves this way because according to our legal team, we could be taken to the woodshed at any of these students or anyone who's who's important terms of getting these games you know done. comes down with this virus and becomes ill or ends up with like depreciated lung capacity Heart Elman or you know worse worse things than that. So I would not want kids to play to keyshawn point but my rationale would be more towards the legal ramifications than the moral ones eight, seven, seven, seven, ten ESPN cures to get people's thoughts on that. The other thing we've been discussing have the. Extra inning rules grown on you now L. Z you. They know they have not but why? Other than the morning show thing that you mentioned that now you can watch games but like, is there like a legitimate like baseball reason? You don't like it yeah. It puts pitchers in very difficult positions unfair positions. You know it's like what happened to Kinley. You know it's like. I don't think that it's fair. That you're starters and relievers all get to have nice healthy sort of clean for the most part innings. and. Then all of a sudden. Now, the pitcher who comes in for the twelfth any whatever has to have a guy already second. I just don't think that's fair. It is a little exciting though. I mean it's it's a little exciting. It's a little exciting. I like to see the build up right and part of the building is just trying to get on base. Understand. China's speed up the game but I believe there are other things you can do Georgia speed the game besides putting a man on second, for instance. Put a shot clock on the amount of time that she can scratch yourself and spit him between pitches. By the way Greg is runner that. Second base is that an earned runs that count as an earned run? No that is not an earned run. For the pitcher it just goes across. Okay. So it's like a team earned run S. Anybody's statistics. I don't care about that. Okay. The stats just care about your competitor and you want an opportunity to win. You know like the stats I get the stats especially when it comes to contract time you WANNA be able to say your era was this study other I totally understand that but just wanna a competitive level you want to be in the best place to win and having someone come in on second base doesn't put the pitcher in the best position just to win as a competitor. I mean, well, I think that's fair. There's so many times that relievers especially come in with runners on base all the time like they inherent. The inherent runners all the time. So pitching with the guy on second is really kind of an of earn bed that guy earned that SPA on the base. He wasn't just Jimmy. Totally, agree totally agree with that where you are. You're you're just giving this spot but I do think it does speed up the game and this is in a while it doesn't hurt against your your era or any of your statistics except for wins and losses possibly if you're that great of a relief pitcher and you're pitching in the in the later innings. That's part of your job is holding that guy on second base and making sure that he doesn't get across. Yeah, and again, it just adds an extra layer of intrigue right and well, we always complain about baseball and that's why I'm curious to hear how people feel about it. Now after all this time is that we always hear that baseball's boring and it's just it's not exciting enough. Well, here's an extra layer of excitement and. It's worked out for the dodgers specifically. I believe you've seen it. Yesterday's game is the reason I brought this up because it's like I was adamantly against it l z from the beginning, and now over time it's absolutely grown on me and yesterday I was watching that I was like man this is fun to watch. It also adds an extra layer of strategy to the game and baseball had lost that certainly in the analytics era. It has and listen baseball's gotTA figure something out. Right I. Don't think this is the silver bullet. I wouldn't be opposed to lowering the number of innings anyway. I think that is okay. What I don't want to have happened is that games are decided because you're doing gimmes and that's a Gimme. Say you know. We're going to start this guy on second. That's Gimme, and then you know it's just. I'm not a purist period. I want bet flips I want I want. I want excitement. I want fun. I want music I'm not one of those off my lawn kind owed is no no, you're not. That's why I'm. That's why I'm wondering I was Kinda surprised to be honest that this is the position that you take, but I just don't like the ideal of just putting a guy on on second base because we want to in this game faster. Is there one of the rule changes that you? Liked. What have I liked? Do you like the one where the minimum batters for the for the Pitcher I'm trying to think I'll tell you what am I rule I tell you. Will actually three batters actually find myself not liking a lot of things. About the changes him get off the lawn guy because all you'll do you have become that and owed. I mean you might be you know sneaks up on you. sneaks up on you and I'm trying to think what do I mean do you like all the rule changes? hitter thing like, Oh, I love the Disney hitter I was in on that from the beginning. Not Me. So Weird I. Yeah. Just I don't like the disk because I don't like the fact that alleviate so much pressure from the manager. That's a key part of what a manager does. And they just take that away some uniformity you need some uniformity in the sport. Then have I'll go back the other way and why the designated hitter why not? The other way now, but nobody wants to see pictures, they hit like the I think if you look at the last several years, they average like a buck fifty nobody wants to see somebody in a sport where it's already tough enough to hit like why do you want to add an extra person there who can't hit you know why? Because everybody needs a stephen. Adams on their team. No you were just lamenting Stephen Adams now he's awful. So. Why would you want that because everyone needs one Oh. Lord. I don't feel that eight forty. Forty seconds George Scores One, ninety, nine. Yeah it is. One Oh, one, thousand, nine, Boston thirty, five seconds left as Z pointed out bosses up to. Timely play-by-play Elsie. You know what time? What time is it is time for the rough domestic game time. They did plenty of that last night. Good Laura. Cheese yeah. So Toronto's take time out here and well, it's run the ball so they can either tie it or take the lead year. It's crazy because that first game was a blowout and the last two have been this. It's basically come down to the last possession, which is kind of what I expected the whole series it just hasn't bounds Toronto's way I just feel like as a basketball fan, I want a longer series between these two teams. So I'm I'm openly rooting for Toronto just for that. No No. No I'm with you. I'm with you. I mean I don't WanNA sweep. That's for sure. I. Think these are two really talented teams with individual players that are worth seen. Fred. Vanfleet by the way. Has Really morphed into just a really good basketball player like. Paid thirty, million a year whatever the hell. You know what I'm saying like that's just it. Let's go the phones here Real Quick Marcus in Pasadena what's up? Yeah, hey guys first time caller I. Love Your Show I think have. Actually a position and they take care of a lot of Cova patients. I think the scary thing about cove it is. Is. It's so different. Some people bounce back in the day. Not In a day like in a week and some people, three months out I've thirty, two year old who feel like fifty five and they're still recovering. So we don't really know what happened to these eighteen nineteen years old and I. I don't Know L. D. it said that it gives them cover I. Don't know that it does because they can always go back and say, well, yeah, the parents really wanted them to play. But you didn't tell us every. You hit stuff from us. So I think legally it's still going to come back and bite them on the but it's kind of like. concussions you know you know junior CEO always wanted to go back in the game and so no one question. But it's decades later that they said Oh. Well, we didn't know everything you didn't tell us everything. So I still think there's so much unknown about this league I I think it's it's it's a potential issue in the long run. For Your Points Thank you mark appreciate it. Stay healthy stay safe and thank you for what you do in the medical community we appreciate that. Yeah. Man. There is a lot of unknowns man it is Pretty Wild Chelsea, how all of this stuff. All, my kids. Got Explain what just happened here? Did you see the away? So the game was tied at one a- one. Toronto and Boston Okay Ka Kemba Walker I was careering Kemba Walker was dribbling losing his dribble dribbling around guys and did a behind the back pass in-between four different Toronto Raptors with a back door cut from Daniel, ties their center for a dunk and is now. Point five seconds left on the clock. TORONTO. is taken time out. We'll advance the ball to have court and Boston is half a second away from taking a three games to none lead. But could God that play was just incredible to watch which is too bad because Fred Ben read the person I just talked about hit right hell of a reverse layup in order tension. Should should've gotten a foul call on that to you should have gotten a foul call on that? Absolutely. Right Clinton Yates is going to join us on the other side. We'll ask him about we'll get into the College PAC twelve debate about them. If you're just hearing the news, the PAC twelve has got rapid testing. They've made a deal with the lab and it looks like sports could be coming back sooner. We'll get into that discussion with him. We'll talk baseball with him as well and the Lakers and it. So putting Yates, it's GonNa join us in two minutes. But for less than that, actually a minute.

Episode 91: What if everyone celebrated every holiday?

"The food for was what if we had nine lives blooded pits ups or if money through on trees. They've Redid nappy back then. It's absurd medical. Hello everybody and welcome to absurd. Hypotheticals the show we over think dumb questions. So you don't have to. I'm your host Marcus Leaner and joined here today by Chrissy and bent storms. Say Hi guys. Hey I'm Chris. Hey I'm Ben guys as a holiday. I was not aware what Sawday I don't know but I guarantee there's going to be at least one today because it turns out there's a lot of Gosh. Dang holidays all year every day. There can be something that you can celebrate. There has to be one day. That is all day. No I really don't think there is because if you're trying to make a new holiday like well which is taken and you'd pick that one until you realize they're all taken already. There wasn't hard it'd be a no holiday holiday off it's a bad name. No Holiday Holiday Holiday holiday. But obviously I don't you know I don't know data's episodes airing off top of my head because it is four twenty nope we didn't update that you've robbed this from it is twenty-seven citing the end of my seven day. We'd Bender on me. It's national there. We go all right. Cool okay so obviously. Our episode of this week is holiday related. It is what if everyone celebrated every holiday and thanks the good people at holidays and observances dot com. We have a list of every single holiday on every single day. There are so Gosh Dang many. I'm very excited. Get into it. But we're going to. We're going to slow roll. We'll start with you Chris because your birthday had the least number of holidays. Yes that's how we did it. We each pick our birthdays. And we're like we're gonNA focus on that day and had we celebrate that one day if we had to celebrate all the holidays. Yeah because there's too much there's too many there's too. Many holidays occur every single holiday. Because there's like some days like million it's crazy so we can't cover all so we decided that to to bring to scale. We're GONNA do just our birthdays. Yeah so my birthday is on January. Third and January third is it has a few holidays is six holidays total I kind of ignored the weekly holidays because just didn't really seem that important so the first daily holiday was JR token day. Which is awesome. Because I like jared cocaine not. It's not to be confused token Reading Day which is March twenty fifth. I don't know why he has to two days but I think the token rainy days like the real one right. I think that's what people actually names Peyton. I don't know I mean. I think the reason that Jr token days a thing is just because January thirties. His birthday man. I was famous enough. The like that the frigate my birthday just became like a holiday of me cleaner day. Yeah like nobody has nobody celebrating that. Accept me your family celebrates it. I guess my friends and family is actually and but none of my facebook presence. I faced birthdays incorrect. Yes so the actually looked at like the holidays. Observances Dot coms like suggestion for celebrating this and they said to decelerate by toasted JR token during a meal or something as like okay. That's pretty easy. I guess yeah that's a nice one. Yeah I wanted to go a little further because like you want to do him justice and there's a lot of Steffi the I mean obviously you can read his books but I feel like I'm not going to be all read all of his books in the entire play one day. That's kind of impossible a year. Yeah and I think that's For token raise reading day anyway has not for this holiday so instead I was like okay. I'll watch everything that's token related which is also a lot of stuff so if I do a movie. Marathon of every single. Jr token related thing. Actually I didn't double check this but I just assumed that the Lord of the Rings Hobbit trilogy and the Hobbit animated movie where the things but the Lord of the Rings Trilogy Is Eleven Hours Long If you watch the extended adhesions and why wouldn't you yes? Yes the hobbit trilogy if you ought to extend dishes eight and a half hours and then the Hobbit animated movie is now in twenty minutes and I actually grew up watching this hobby anime movie a lot like allied nostalgia for it but if you add all this up it told us to twenty one hours just less than a day. But it's just most of the day so I was like okay. I three hours left to celebrate holidays. how is? I hope it's possible so next holiday is Memento Mori Day or remember you die day. No that's good that's convenient for staying up for twenty one hours. Yeah so the purposes holidays just to reflect on your your inevitable death. I guess right. Yeah well they kinda frame it as like you're GonNa die so cherish today is had they say it but like what are the things that is a lot of people that died at so I guess that's a good member like a good way to remember that I'm going to die and I didn't cover the the weekly holidays but I just want to mention one of the wiki weekly holidays with a celebration of life week all right so social life but don't forget yeah so actually pretty easy to do while? I'm watching rings and take up any time. Next holiday is humiliation day. Oh No it sounds bad but I discovered this just because people are bad naming holidays like Kinky holiday now so the description of the high. They've the first thing they said was. This is not to humiliate other. People is is just a deuce the humiliation of others. I guess I recognize You shouldn't humiliate people. They really shouldn't name that a little bit better. Yeah it's like the name is pretty much the opposite of that How's that help? Make imagine you got you. Humiliate yourself a bunch and it's like people like wow. When's humiliation day? I'm going to think of you like if your phone blows up humiliation date making it worse. It's so hidden. Wake up in the K. Bucket I call for humiliation day off. Fuck what I do and strangely enough. Canada has her own separate. Humilation days Canadian humiliation day. It's on July first. I don't know why they have. I mean I read the description I do know. Why would you say you know? I didn't know why all this research is to Canadian. Humiliation started by Chinese immigrants in because they were like mad how they're treated so and add nothing to do with us but the US has their own. I don't know whether. Us has their own. I didn't look that one up. Probably stolen from Canada. Seems Fun so again. It's pretty easy to not humiliate people watching Lord of the rings and reflecting on my death and I'll just you that doesn't take up any time So I still have my three hours left and I have three more holidays. Yeah so my next holiday is national chocolate covered. Cherry Day. She's not Sundays. I like chocolate covered. Cherries thanks to eat. And there wasn't a lot of information on this holiday probably because it's just pretty obvious what you should do. I just eat chocolate covered cherries. So I guess that's what I'm GONNA do. I'M GONNA eat traffic coverage as while I watch Lord of the rings every hour you don't use up is an hour you do get to sleep on this day. Yeah that's true. He's probably idea because you have more holidays tomorrow. Finally three extra hours so time. All that does this. Strawberry Chuck have ruined my life yet. I'm like well. Maybe it's a good one. I think you're already pretty deep drivers. Cherries are better my Benz. But I'm GonNa let slide. There's a holiday after all. Cherries are definitely better than strawberries. I okay Okay we can't just one go. So just to be clear deemed shocker Cherries Cherries in general. Both okay you can. At least make an argument for. Cherries being better than strawberries. In general chuck ever strawberry to definitely wear the Tux. Jerry's disagree I'd almost go go the other way of you bet and say that you could argue. Strawberries are better. In general. Chares better flavor profile which seemed to have a Mexican stand-off none of us are going to continue Christmas. We for the would you rather question. Strawberries Cherries So my next holiday. Oh so Her chocolate covered cherry. I'm just GONNA eat chocolate covered trays. Why Watch or the Rings? Pretty Simple My next holiday is national drinking. Straw day that celebrates day in eighteen eighty eight when Marvin see stones. I received his patent for the drinking Straw. A paper drinking Straw I are people are flooding the streets that day I mean I imagine it's pretty popular at first came out. Nobody knew about the Patent Day. True so this is also pretty simple. I'm just GONNA celebrate by drinking stuff through straws. Why Watch what are the Rings? Can you get a Straw? Big enough to fit a chocolate covered. Cherry in it. Maybe I mean chocolate covered. Cherries are pretty big. That the biggest Straw that I can think of. That's like a normal sized tross till is the Boba like the bubble tea straws and those are still too small but I imagine you could find one. That is big enough. I don't know how much suction you would need to get it up there though if you did what it just like. Shoot you in the river mouth. Probably for men can dream. That's five holidays. Dan have one more to go. I still have three hours left because none of those holidays took up anytime except for the first one And markets mentioned sleeping for the rest of the day and that is convenient because my last holiday is festival of Sleep Day. Oh no so I mean I only three hours left in the day so basically just sleep the rest of the three hours pretty easy so my day. My all day consists of watching Lord of the Rings Eating Cherries and going to sleep. Sounds like holiday to me. I could easily do this tomorrow to be. I be fined house which was sinked up movie things and watch all the Lord of the Rings Movies Today. Sounds like a pretty good day. So that's January third. Marcus you do all right. My birthday is July eighteenth and I'm going to start off with the easiest wants to implement and that I have. I have a couple more than you did. So the first holiday on my list here is toss away the could have and should have day which I thought was like this whole can be this big spring cleaning like garage sale type holiday which was going to be kind of cool but turns out basically. It's like a have no regrets as the kind of the idea where you're supposed to just like sit down in the morning. Take out a piece of paper. Write down all the things you like. Oh Man I should have done that. I could've done that but I didn't. He's supposed to run a paper and then crumpled up and throw it out. It's not a very exciting holiday. Phagocytes mentally healthy. If if you're into that kind of thing so there's that one the next one probably the most real holiday on this list is The Nelson Mandela international debt. So this one. You can really have fit with your schedule. Because there's like they have a list of ways to celebrate it and by list. It's like a giant fucking list of like a thousand different ways. Different things you could do but basically it's like be nice do some charity stuff and so it goes from like the suggestions on this page go from like really vague like research an issue to find out more about and then share your findings friends on social media to weirdly specific to like offer to mow the lawn and fix up the garden at a nursing home or hospice to then kind of aggressive like become an organ donor. So as long as you're doing some good good stuff you've accomplished Nelson Mandela International Day. And it has nothing to do with the mental effect. I wanted to have something to the Mandela fact. Nah doesn't it's be nice and good so next. I think the way to do if you're doing all these the way is you're gonNA have to try to combine as many as possible so the three that. I'm combining here. Our National Bridal Sale Day National Woody Wagon Day and women's dive day. Women's died last one women's dive day data celebrate. We know women's diving myself but for some reason I I made that assumption. Let me super double. I just read women's dynamic. I know what that is. The I learned that that's a mistake. You should not make with one of mine in particular. I learned that with humiliation day. Oh boy this website is horrible. This website is horrid thinking national holidays observances observances dot com. But at the same time. Oh my God this site okay. It's diving it's diving. I'm good anyhow. It's not like women on dive Bar Day. So this holiday to work combining the bridal sale the woody wagon day and the day is I think what you can do is like a one time event. Almost like a okay. It'd be really overly dangerous activity that you do just on this day because it's it's wacky and fun so basically the idea is that you want to dive into a bridal dresses on a clothesline and do like the cartoon thing we fall fall off the roof. And you you lead in the bridal dress and then like after the dive you're wearing it. There's gotta be a way to do it safely moderately safely so I think you do like this one. Everyone like you know you. You have like you. Do you go to the Bridal Sale. You buy address you bring it back to your place and then you kind of have everybody lined up and everyone takes a turn diving. Well he's all the women. I guess. The man can participate to then account need to squeeze in the woody wagon so I was like well. What if you're dive? You're just like you know. Standing in the wagon on the roof. And then like the wagon hits the edge of the roof and you'd hop off the wagon new dive in and then that is realize I had a fundamental misunderstanding of what National Woody Wagon. Day was about 'cause it turns out a witty wagon is not what I imagined which was like the little kids wagon with like the like the red board sizes like the blue bottom and like the four little plastic wheels and the big handle that the parents can pull you round on. That's what I thought it was turns out the woody wagon is an old timey car. Looks like a station wagon panel station wagon. Yeah Wood Panel Station Wagon. Pyro won't abandon my cool idea of doing the roof dives so it's just GonNa be a lot more expensive at. You're going to have this new bigger. Yeah you sit on the car and you drive the car off a roof and you kind of hop off you. Sit on the hood of the car. Maybe let the car roll down the roof hop off the car land in the bridal sale dress and then the national woody wagon I guess breaks. I'm GONNA give all the woody wagon manufacturers willing to do for the entire year until their until the relevant yet they could fix although he wagons. Are they still making them? They would if they have everyone else to celebrate. The holiday demand would be up to quite good for business. Probably that is true. Threw up the roof. That's not the phrase like it though through raising the roof. You got up through if you know. Yeah recent bar. So that's kind of the main activity of my day. I still have a few more holidays than here. Luckily these are all food related and so I have. It is National Caviar National Sour candy day and Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Day. Three very refined things ever cherry rhubarb wine. I know out of this podcast right now. So again I think the key is to try and combine these holidays into one thing as opposed to making a whole bunch of different dishes so I really wanted to try and come up with a dish. That combines the caviar the sour candy and the Strawberry Rhubarb wine and. I think he can do it. So have you guys ever seen Oh no what are. They called the the deviled eggs like soaked in red wine and actually get like the egg part gets pink. I have not seen these. So you can do with what you can do deviled. Eggs is the hardboiled egg part. You can actually soak it or marinated in wine. And it'll absorb a little bit of flavor and the colors so I think what you do is caviar goes on deviled. Eggs normally see make deviled eggs. You marinate them in the strawberry rhubarb wine. You put the caviar on top and I'd not so sour candy. I'm not sure how it works cooking wise because I can see either including it in the Strawberry Rhubarb Like marination. Solution if you want to call it that I like hearing you talk about cooking terms. Yeah for some reason. They're escaping me as I sit here. Marinade it's pretty straightforward. Yeah marinate thank you vinegar. Vinegar marinade still marinating Or if it's you can boil it down and then apply watt soft and get like a Nice Sour Candy. Shell around the deviled eggs. I think it'd be kind of cool actually. And then you have like this doesn't sound appealing. Sounds so bad. Salty Sour deviled. Eggs is kind of what you end up with with the hard candy Shell Wadsworth. This hour is like a a sour sweet. Yeah but all the candy part is like you suck on it and then you get to the middle and you have egg. Well maybe you want a really thin layers. You can get through it. Was you want to have to suck on it for a while? And there are gummy sour candies. You can have a. It can be more like closer to texture. I there's a way to do it. Just get Gordon. Ramsay on the phone. He's GonNa help me with this. Dear Gordon Ramsey's I need. These are the holidays. Who'd holidays on my birthday and I want to make something about these three items? Would you say Gordon Ramsey's like does it does not have an asset? The Gordon Ramsay the. I like the idea that his name is Gordon. Ramsay named after the Greek God. Or if if you ask me to spell Ramsey's that'd be R. E. S. Gordon. Ramsay is on the phone more of them more than more all of them. He does answer stupid cooking questions on his twitter. So maybe we can send him one. Mrs True Anyhow so Chris you mentioned a couple of times the weekly holidays and I'm going to mention my because actually again that can be combined pretty easily so what I have for my weekly holidays. There's a bunch here. It's celebration of the Horse Day. Which not weekly. But it's not a day it's all weekend so it's not quite a week. Not Quite a day I put it in my weekly category called celebration away. Yes celebrate the horse as all weekend. there's also national rabbit week National Moth Week. The Hemingway lookalike weeks. There's like two weeks of this and so I think we can do it. You can kind of combine all these Nice Nice and neatly together into national ventriloquist week and everyone just gets different. Animal different animal. Or Hemingway puppets and you. Kinda just communicate through those when it's funny. I guess you listed all the holidays and you're like going to combine them to obviously national ventriloquist week and I did not do the connection with animals in Hemingway so you can just like make puppets and you're good. I'll take your word for it. And then the last couple just complete the list sports cliche week Not Very exciting. There may be. You can have your ventricles jobs with that Operation Safe driver week so drive safe and then restless leg syndrome education and Awareness Week and with that I have gone through my big list of holidays. Then what's on your birthday so I had more days than you guys. God I think I think so. I think Chris had like six right. I'd six and I ate. I have fifteen so I have more of eastern mind Something I realized this I started working through. It is that My birthday which is eight actually falls on a Friday which means it to work day so I think that if this is sort of a thing that happens company and figure out how to to help their employees do all of their celebration without like using up all the time. They're at work right so I wanted to figure out. Can I get all of these celebrations and a half an hour short like lunch break amount of time here? You're saying that we're not getting work off your holiday. Well I mean you can't. It's every day true. We can't get off to here is not working. So how'd Y'all get the importance? Important ones often is not important. Mayan is not important. They're going to go with the easy ones. I. It's the first one easy one. No socks day. Just don't wear socks literally. I'm not wearing socks right now. Me Neither no shit. I'm wearing Santi eight so I was actually I? I assume that this was related. Like some sort of you know. There was some sort of of awareness thing associated with it or anything. No it's not. It's just don't wear socks that's literally. I was very confused. So there's no more socks event is actually saves time so don't upon socks in the morning so he actually have gained back about ten seconds the other one the food related ones. You know the cafeteria work. Just serve the foods so we got to today. There's national opinion Ed and National Coconut Cream Pie with these are excellent foods. So just how. Those available boom done kind of related. I'M GONNA go ahead and included here. There is fantastic. Friday which is basically a day for raising awareness of conservation issues for like sharks and rays and stuff and the biggest thing they say like rid of is eat sustainably sourced fish so serve that to boom done all sorts. Do that all the time. Because you should eat sustainably. Sourced fish does overlap with shark week. I don't think it does actually which feels like a really missed opportunity on their part wholeheartedly. Us In summer right is close. I mean I guess I guess it's a waste of your fin tastic holiday on the only week in the people really care about sharks. This is true. Yeah are token gets two days in sharks get two days. You're right it also does seem like Shark. Week is in July. I guess this is where you start like Ryan for Shark. Week to get people hyped. You know you can do that at works. How much damage Shark Week by? Because once I figured you don't you don't have to take any extra time out to deal with them in the area and no one wear socks easy. Then he has for general like fund raising type days. That don't really have a great way to like celebrate them otherwise which I got to here so there's World Ovarian Cancer Day so make some donations for that. I guess and World Red Cross state was just game. The Red Cross I fig- you're going to have like a spot at work. That is just like where you put up posters for organizations for that day. Say Do that but if I can put up a collection box maybe spend comments staring at that. Cool there we go. We have twenty eight minutes left all right now. We have days. That are about appreciating particular. People I have two of those today as well. There is childcare provider day and military spouse appreciation day childcare provider will be a lot easier if my work offered daycare. I don't think it does man this one so I figure for this one. The best thing to do you're going to have a like work database of people who either know people in fields or like work in fields off time or something so like for this one will have people who have spouses the military. You can thank them. Just send them law there chats all day. They won't give you anything dumb. Everyone else will so it will work in the long run and then I guess like people who have who know someone who works in childcare. I don't know that one was tougher. I guess you could also find a daycare nearby end. Send him a fruit basket. I don't know but we're looking at once again. Relatively low time commitment there. Maybe like a minute to like. Send a couple of captioning easy all right now. We have a couple of flour related or flower related adjacent to make it work day. I like I like you. Somebody holidays that you're able to categorize them to have more than one all day in each category. Yes I'm trying to imagine what flower related adjacent could possibly be. It's not actually flash so so there's actually a couple of years there so for actual flowers Iris Day. Which is not. I related like I. I assume just assumed all these assumption one that I'll I'll get to in just a second IRA say about the flowers irises. And it's just like having them around. I Dunno it's kind of just said Dade like say. Hey there's these flowers there wasn't any like guidance on or anything. It was kind of weird so I'm going to say look at some irises. But there is also on this day in this. We're going to get to flower Jason. There is free trade day not just a day supporting the practice of free trade. It is specifically actually Australian holiday. Where Trades People? Go around and help people with resources for free which is really cool but I think what we do is that as part of it for today because they fall on the same day gardens would go around and like plant irises for people who have like you know like low income households and stuff. So he sucked. So you're like there's going to be like a plug on. Somebody's house and start. Planning flowers might sink is broken. No time no time you can also just do you know health health you know people with local households that have plumbing issues but also like kill to birth one stone gardeners lawn plan some irises give planted in. Iras in your sing but it does turn on now. Yeah you know like just make it work all right the other one. That's kind of adjacent. That's sort of how I haven't just under wildcards. Right now is White Lotus Day which I foolishly assume about the flower. The White Lotus. It's not. It's actually a celebration of Thea sophists. Which theon theon Sophy Thea? Sophie is apparently a religion founded by this Russian immigrant back in the late nineteenth century. That's like a combination of like a cultist stuff and like Buddhism and stuff. I don't know there's a lot going on and clearly. The coppee was written by someone in this religion and has very little sourcing so I didn't know how much trust literally any of it. There's just like he dropped how ban he dropped in the middle of your answer to and then he came back the Ray of light or life flashes into into the germ sense. There's a lot of that on here. That yeah you got to start over a little bit because you dropped bright after you finish talking about the religion and I came back as bacterial something. That's actually OK. Kyra question we leave us in exactly as it is because what. I was doing actually just Redo it. I'm very sad about this but so we can leave. We can lead your. We'll do this. We'll leave it. You going off and coming back in but just Philipson off air for a second. What the hell you're talking about them. So yeah it's this weird religion. It's like a combination of a cultist stuff and like Buddhism and some stuff and the wikipedia page for both the holiday and the religion were clearly written by people in their religion and so like there's a section of Kapadia there's two for the holiday. There's two sections. It's explanation and more explanation. And all the information is just like direct like passages from a paper that the founder religion wrote. That has all this crazy bullshit in it which the line I read was. The ray of the ever darkness becomes as it is omitted array of effluent light or life and flashes into the germ the point and the mundane egg represented by matter in his abstract sense. That's amazing because you literally we start. We reconnected at the ray of and which is perfect. I thought you're up to no three different holidays already. No no no. This is White Lois Day. So you're going to celebrate that religion. I have no idea which is very very powerful question of this a lot of holidays associated with let's say nontraditional religions which. I guess for all celebrating now which is kind of complicated so I don't know how you celebrate White Lotus Day on the edge. It encourages meditation about the metaphor of a Lotus Metaphor. The Lotus is his stand. The Lotus is born under the mud growing the water to achieve the surface and therefore the air and the light of the Sun. So you know. Just do that. If you're buried alive stop doing that. Get up get out. Get out of the mud flower adjacent. Technically I dunno meditate on the power of a Lotus. Everybody then we get to the Harry. Truman holidays. F- that's right. I said holidays. There's two of them so one. There's Truman Day which is his birthday Which as far as I can tell is really just sort of celebrated in Missouri. Because he was born there and it's kind of all they have. Oh let's that. Yeah he's well he's the he's the only president they have definitely so special for them. So it's just it's a holiday. That's his birthday that's cool. I wish we could all get that. But there's also a vide which is victory in Europe Day which was when World War Two ended in Europe which one kind of crazy that happened on his birthday being as he was the president at the time. Right like that worked out Kinda well. Maybe maybe maybe it was a birthday gift to him. I mean I guess yeah I don't know but yeah I don't know how you so. I guess we're just like like this. This one was kind of weird because it's actually like kind of an actual holiday. You know it's okay to have regular holidays. We celebrate somehow. Yeah but it's also we don't really do anything for so I guess we'll like punch a Nazi. I don't know like find a German person then feel superior to them for a minute. Which is difficult because Germans are awesome is true but yeah so I guess we'll we'll just you know. Think about Harry Truman for a while and how the war ended. I guess it okay. Yeah I mean. I don't know we have a parade 'cause I had to JR token days but they're on different days. Yes little more sense. I mean technically one of them is not entirely Harry Truman Related Yeah Pretty Somewhat Harry Truman related. Okay here's here's here's my here's my here's my pitch for the celebrated you play game a risk and the winner gets to wear the Harry Truman mask all day Can I say that it should be access now is instead because I was like specifically World War Two yes okay cool but only because I already mentioned risk people know what the Hell we're talking about fair reasonable compromise all right cool we gotta plan? Our OTHER WILDCARD IS NATIONAL. Animal Disaster Preparedness Day. I was very sad to find out that this is about finding disaster plan for the animals in your life not preparing for animal related disasters. Which could be anywhere from Lucas warms to you know apes plan of the apes to King Kong. I guess but no. It's just for like making sure you have a plan for like if you have a dog and there's a fire your dog out whereas a tornado. Nagata dog your dog. Safe keeping your dog safe. It's kind of when it comes down to so make sure you're safe. That's an easy one. Because the first you just gotta like check like the expiration dates on your like dog. Emergency ejector seat. I guess yeah so those ones all take very little time like if you if you set things up right and have like some infrastructure in place at work you can you can take care of all of those and like I definitely under ten minutes. So that's great. The one problem we have is the last holiday that falls may eighth which is National Public Gardens Day. Because I feel like the way you have to celebrate National Public Gardens Day. I go into a public garden at least for my office. There is not one any closer than like half an hour away. So that's GonNa take some time and I feel like you can't make your employees go there in their off time. Can everyone even fit in the public garden? You'RE GONNA have to go in waves. There's I mean there's clearly there's multiple public gardens. There's lots of them right so there's a lot of people. There are a lot of people. I think you're going to have to like have sign ups for times then like central there on buses to keep things going go into the right time and only stay there for like a minute. Yeah just for efficiency reasons if the only thing you can do so it's not the most relaxing time you can go there. Smell the flowers and then immediately leave. So that's cool actually. I realized that you should definitely be have some. You Know Iris around the sort of just you know once again. Kill two months down. That was a mistake on my part anyway. Point being a big mudpit where he can dive in and then be allowed through the mud like the white load breathing the air the Sun. So do all of that and you include transportation to and from a public garden this half an hour away and a man of time there. You're looking at like an hour and fifteen match or so which honestly is better than I expected. The one problem being as was mentioned before there are also weekly holidays and man it turns out there. A lot of weekly holidays. Included may aid which are arsenal whereas week be kind to animals week. Dating in life coach recommissioning week drinking water week economic development we flexible work arrangement. We Goodwill Industries International Billion Safety Week International Clitoris Awareness Week International. Khushi Week. Kids Win Week. National Alcohol Alcohol and other drug really at birth defects week national anxiety and depression awareness. Week National Children's Book Week National Correctional Officers Week National Family Week National Earthquake National Hug Holiday Week National Hurricane Preparedness Week. National Neuro NEUROPATHY AWARENESS. Week National Nurses Week national pet week National Postcard Week National Public Gardens. Week that seems a little ridiculous day. But whatever National Raisin National Safety stand-down week National Small Business Week National Sun Safety Week National Tourism Week National Wildflower Week North American occupational safety and health. Week peripheral neuropathy neuropathy awareness. Week many already had a full week. Why didn't you prefer to public service? Recognition Week Puppy Mill Accident Ramadan. Oh real okay. Ace Canal teacher appreciation week. The biggest week in American birding. I don't know what that means time. Remembrance and reconciliation for those who lives during the Second World War. Update your references week. We the classroom teacher. There was just classroom teacher week up there a man to go world cocktail week and World Estonia Awareness Week. I don't know how you can possibly celebrate all of those. How many did you cap them? Forty three forty three C. I said that I skipped my weekly holidays to money and didn't really seem important to me. I had seven seven. So Eddie seven is a lot clearly so clearly there are lots of great weeks in there but I don't think it's possible I think my overall takeaway guys is that. I don't think you can celebrate all the holidays every day. There's a lot of them. I mean you managed to celebrate fifteen in like an hour and a half right. That's true but how do I be aware of neuropathy? I'm not aware that yet. I still that is twice both regular in peripheral once. You're aware of you just have to wait until you're perfectly aware. Just put up with competing page. Then turn your head ninety degrees entry good so so those are all the holidays on my day and I cannot for the life of me understand how you would at least with the weeks be sobering and all of them. I don't think it's I'll talk a little out of breath now. That was a lot of weeks. Said you did miss you. Miss Shark Week by four days. It's May twelve twenty twenty so close so very close all right bed. Who would you rather eat? Chocolate covered. Strawberries Straw clicks off and Sharon. He's so much. Are we doing this? No not actually. I was ready. I know I can. I can feel your haunt his rights from here. I'm I'M GONNA stand ups right now. They are risen those perky. Fuck right now. What exactly. What part of the body are the haunches is it? Is it the biodiversity buttocks? I believe right. I don't think I've ever heard that word used for a body part. I'm pretty sure the buttocks a buttocks but for like four legged animal A BUDIG and fi considered Sarah together in a human or animal. Oh it's like a more inclusive buttocks right. Yeah Okay. Why are we talking about this? Because it's officer perky arrays rookie. Why do you keep saying Perky can? What does that mean buttocks? So Yeah Okay all right. Hey I was half of it. I don't know about size. But what's what's the would you rather. Where are we actually? Actually what I have in here for today is. Would you rather have telepathy telekinesis? Oh how are we not covered this yet? I saw your question. How strong is your Tornados? And how controls your pathetic so we can do. Yeah we we could use to to. Apathy can be the good kind where you choose to. Somebody's thoughts it's not like one of the. I hear everyone's thoughts and I'm going insane. One that I think makes pretty simple. Telekinesis probably dislike maybe like limit at your body weight like maybe takes as much effort as lifting. It would with your arms. That's what I was gonNA say because because otherwise if you if you can lift more than you normally can. It's both token ISA's and super shrank. I'm trying to remember there was there was one. It must have been the discworld series where it's like where it's more of a satire or a comedy book but it was like the version of. Tolkien's this was that you can move things but has to have an equal opposite reaction so if you'd like lift up a soda. Can it puts that much force on your brain. So you're limited out much like that's one more trauma you could sustain from your brain moving around your skull that's an amazing way of doing it. it will say let's say good versions of both. It's good for the both telepathy on command and token of moderate power. I'd say Tuchus is your normal strength like it takes the same amount of effort to with something that you would by hand But you can just do it from a distance. Yeah all right I think the answer is this something that everyone can do or Jeff's weekly just you just you that changes things because I was gonna say so if everyone can do one of them. The answer is clearly telekinesis because there are people telepathy. People AREN'T GONNA lie anyway. I come down the other side of that debate where nobody could lie ever and that was just how things were. I think it caused. It would be not as bad because like everyone knows. Everyone's some white lies like you. Just get better at you. Just be more youth receiving criticism and hearing what other people thought of well. That's what I'm saying though. Is that no what I'm saying? Is that if everyone got the choice. You would choose telekinesis under the assumption that some people would choose telepathy and because Samuel chose Lepetit. People wouldn't lie as much so you wouldn't get much benefit out of it psychological Game Theory. But if it's just you all right important question if you can do a handstand and walk on your hands. Can you love and tate? Can't let yourself dammit. You can't lift yourself now. Where are you gonNA get letters from? I mean like if you can do like pull up. That's in your body weight but you can't pick yourself up so I'm GonNa say no on that also I don't want to be about flying. I don't want to do a pullout able to fly for that long. I wouldn't call it flying. I call it. I mean that's why not fly. I'm going to say no on that. All right all right all right right and I'm the host. I get final word on them. Works right that's been how it's been working ninety episodes or something like that. I'm going to say telekinesis because I feel like it changes your life less. That's actually a good thing. I don't know if I wonder when everyone's thinking all the time but you can choose. It's under your control but I don't think I want that power right. Yeah do you want to have that temptation all the time on everything? Is You had these powers? Would you let people know that you had these powers who you try to keep hitting? I'll ask good question. Well I mean it depends. What what you. What you're doing with that telepathy. You could be like you have the choice. So it's it's what you want to do so you can be like. Oh yeah make my close friends and family. No I have to say because it'll will come out at some point but like my business rivals don't have it but do you even want people to know that you have that ability to their mind. I don't think I want anyone to know that privacy. She people don't trust you anymore. It's definitely problematic. Problem is if someone knows that you have telekinesis the military is GonNa take you open up your brain dissect you. I was going to happen with both of these. I don't know if that's how the military works in close enough. I think there is a line. Where like even if you have something crazy you they might ask you to come in for some tests. But they're not gonNA fucking like kidnap. You depends on if you're militias or not fair all right okay. What are the actually useful things you can do with telekinesis so get a beer? I think both these are very useful. Token ISA super useful. You don't have to walk around you. That's not that useful you can. What how how how? What's your range for telekinesis? Like how far can you pick things up from I do you have to be able to see it year. Like you know large field or at one hundred fifty feet and earn fifty feet. I don't think it's actually that useful still though Mike. It's what if you hide it and your quarterback I mean I guess that's good. I don't know like I feel like you could. You could like make this much money if you carefully told like some NFL organization that you were telepathic. And you could read the mind of the opposing coaches and say we're GONNA run okay. Yeah and then. He wouldn't get head all the time just by the consequence of playing the game which seems. Nice here. Here's my take on it. I think if your goal is to be the most accessible make the most of my telepathy is the way to go Martin Society. You do not need telekinesis for you know to succeed at life. It would be cool. You can do some stuff you can make it. We'll tell can ISA's but you couldn't like yeah if you WANNA be on the Upper Echelons of sports coaching where. There's a lot of money like business deals or negotiations. All that find tell can help the way to go me personally. I don't like lying and stuff. That's not what I like to do. I don't think I would. I would feel a lot of pressure and wouldn't want to have that ability. That's just too much for me so I think I would just like to stay kind of as I am but also be able to pick things up with my mind because that would be cool but it is true. Telepathy centers around deception I was thinking the same way as Marcus. Actually I mean you could do it use it. You can use it for good. You could be like American. Be Deceiving someone but you could use for empathy. We're like oh I understand what you're feeling because I literally read your mind as you could be empathetic and help people's you can use it for good. I talk to people that are in Comas. Yeah but I also don't want to like I consider myself a nice guy but I don't want like I wouldn't go around the world like a Buddha order. John Yes I am. I want to go around the world and like like fix everybody's problems through empathy. That's not exactly my personality. If you had telekinesis you could use it in like movies for special effects. I mean that is true. You could be a star wars movie. And they wouldn't have to do anything we'll know here's the thing they would probably do a better job with special effects than what you're doing because you'd have to like move it physically in. Lake you can't cheat acceleration and things like you could with the digital rendering so you probably. I can do this lightsaber with my mind. They'd be like our. We're going to do it and post. We will make sure it spins just right. And so I guess that if you go back to like the seventies maybe you'd be better off beyond we said they can't lift your body ways so I was GonNa say if you could then you could work in movies because then you could lake that people have to use wires and stuff her stunts. You can just like hold them. You're the only person I know that consistently use magic powers to like get a low to mid level job and do like be like ten percent more efficient. Add ANY STUNT. Work in a movie is not a low level job. You're GONNA be really good at without can uses cleaning gutters. Yeah clean the leaves the way you could. I want these days. I think the answer is telekinesis because tell Slept is clearly a much stronger power. I don't want to. It's a thinking man's game and none of us are in that we're all dumb. Yeah we're all GONNA fuck that up so hard like it. Sounds like? We're all just scared of telepathy. That's really what it comes down to so basically we're a bunch of cowards insecure cowards. That's what we are but you know we would be less insecure if you guys came onto our patriot and donated money to us. Because you like what we're doing that would make us feel really good and then maybe we'll get the telepathy and then we could read your mind about how much you love us you by telepathy so if you go to. Www DOT patriots dot com slash? Absurd hypotheticals you can subscribe our show become patron for just one dollars a month and you get access to cool behind the scenes episodes where we talk about making the show. The last week of things Ben has to drink some crazy milk in this one that that's happening it real in real time as a record is happening twenty minutes so I'm very excited. So there's all those cool things additionally this is right now episode ninety one I believe and our hundred episode is coming up. Our plan is to do one hundred hypothetical questions in one hundred minutes. It is going to be the fastest of lightning rounds. And since we want to do one hundred questions we need questions so send us a email tweets facebook posts. Whatever there's lots of ways to contact US send us your questions to see them featured on our one hundred episode or if it's a really good question we might do a whole episode. Might be one hundred first episode but we actually go all out and answer the whole thing and if being on the show isn't enough excitement for you. We have additional incentives. We have we have a gift for you if you. WanNa if you're interested so I write books in addition to this podcast and I have written a book called Sierra cortex which is a sci-fi crime thriller about a bunch of homicide detectives going into the mind of a serial killer And I have made an audiobook version of that which I have free codes for them giving out so if you are interested send in a question for our hundred episode to absurd hypotheticals that gmail.com and in your email just say code please to indicate the the code and I'll send you a code assuming that I still have codes left. I only have one hundred codes. I don't think that'll be an issue but it is I will had don't have anything. Promise you there's lots of go around if you submit what you're almost you're virtually guaranteed a code for the book and You have until the end of May to do that but in any case. Feel free to join us next week where we answer the following question. What if we all lived in glasshouses?

Absurd Hypotheticals

Episode 81: Lightning Round 8

"The food for was what if we had nine lives blooded pits ups or if money through on trees. They've Redid nappy back. Then insert absurd. I bet everybody and welcome to absurd. Hypotheticals the show we over. Think dumb questions so you don't have to. I'm your host markets. Lehnert joined here today by Chris and Ben Storms. Say Hi guys. Hey I'm Chris. Hey I'm Ben guys. We got a lightning round today. I love the lightning round. It's one episode late because of Valentine's Day. Yeah Valentine's again the way things. I'm sure it would be a very good job because we haven't actually recorded that one yet. Were in a space time flux here so I'm sure we had excellent episode last week. Definitely GonNa be even better. I think every episode is going to be better from this point forward. It's going to be awesome. It's a two thousand twenty resolution even though it's like a month after new years yeah well but who's counting? You know you can. You can still make resolutions. It's okay it's almost. It's almost two months after new years. It's never too late to improve while what's the average time that resolution That people give up on the resolutions. Real talk here. I do not like New Year's resolutions. I mean I never make them. I don't either. I don't make them but it's important to note that I will make like resolutions throughout the year. I'm like I'm not GonNa do this or this or this anymore. When like in the moment that this is shitty and I don't want this to be part of my life anymore So like if there's anything you want to change about your life don't wait for January first and like have that excuse because you're gonna be a different mental space by the time. January first comes around so this is very. I don't think it matters when you to as long as you stick to it right so I I don't knock people that do making us resolutions because if it if you do it works for you. Don't stop doing that either. But you knocked them if they make it and they don't do it yet just realize you have more than one opportunity each year with which to improve yourself and your life. Yeah he make resolution and it's you know now you have anything like wealth too late now. I'll try again next year. Don't do that just do it. Now you still got just be better. Every Steve had yes such two and a half years after or two two and a half months after New Year's resolution so our resolution is to have every episode. Be better than the previous one. Okay Margaret already. It was it was pretty clear and the nice and then I said it wasn't a resolution because it's new year's wealth in the bar really low all that we can very easily just like limbo ver- next week now that we have to be bad when we record the Valentine's Day before this episode Let's turn this what let's turn this guy's first of all some. Some breathing room has hop on the roller coaster. All right first lightning round question of the day If you guys don't know what the leading around is the leading around is where we answer a bunch of hypothetical questions We have not prepared this. We have not done research like we normally do We can't just do this. One off the cuff but we do lots of them. And it's a fun time and we made this list kind of long time ago so we're not really that familiar with these questions anymore. We are going to be a surprise anyhow question number one. What if it was always overcast? The weather is always that weird cloudiness where it's just one big thin cloud over everything we live in Boston. So this is kind of the truth for maybe half the year. Anyway I mean he's better off than England well. Yeah that's true I take like overcast weather. It depends on the season it depends on the season. Yeah see overcast. Whether is deceiving. Because it looks like it's not sunny but you can still get sunburned. This is true now but now's not saving snow. It's a Sunday and snow. You're fucked. That's yeah so pros and cons of overcast pros. It's not actually sunny. It is nice to be outside. Overcast Day that were the. Weather's otherwise nice because it's not like that intensity in that brightness and you kind of like do your thing cons it'll jerry. Seasonal depression will be a thing pros. We might solve global warming. Who maybe like I? I don't I don't quote me on this. 'cause I'm not a scientist but like it would be cooler overall air go. Yeah The Sun would definitely review would not hit the ground so would reflect more sunlight so there would it would be cooling effect or basically saying that there's one giant cloud around the entire Earth right pretty much. It's overcast everywhere. Does it ever rain? Yeah that was. My next question can rain while still being overcast. Yeah I think so like you. Don't I guess? He needs specific types of clouds terrain. But like that contributes to the overcast. I mean you could definitely have that that. That drizzle rain yeah like cold. In Germany. Dow Oregon which translates to duration rain. Where just fucking drizzles. For like a week and a half. It's very that s and crab a European is. It can kill your whole vacation there for like a week and a half. It might rain every day sucks. Does it have to be flat type of cloud to be considered over casual? Can it be those puffy clouds? The campaign puffy. I mean there'd be puffy clouds on top of the thin clouds I think I'm not sure. What layers clouds existed at remember? What the what they're called. I know they've names are remember but I think tip over Catholic the thin cloud that can drizzle rain. We're not going to get any real rainstorms. Yeah but we're not going to like like hose the water cycle or something so I feel like our space program might not exist. Oh we just never experienced overcast like we were just like never see stars. Yeah we wouldn't know. What was there? The Hubble telescope is out there for why we made that like. I'm saying like if it was always overcast. Like in the in history. Could you imagine you are the first person to get to build an airplane or a hot air balloon on in this overcast world and you go and you like the overcast clouds? As far I think are pretty low. You'd come up over. The overcast clouds and then there would just be like stars and space and the Sun and the moon piece people basically just think it's like a ceiling right until we fly over it. I don't think anything's about the club. Okay other other things to consider plants. Photosynthesis still works. I think I think there are plants. That wouldn't are there. Plans to need like direct direct sunlight. I don't know that much about plants. Either I'm not a gardener. I feel like I feel like they do get some of what they need. Just not as much. Yes maybe the less plants. I don't know once again not scientists but trying real hard labor should know more. He's asked what this point and our podcast have really out of. We have become like weekend experts on a lot of topics tonight. I mean I guess we've done a bunch of plant. We don't. We really focused on synthesis. You did a whole fucking episode on Forest Chris. Oh you're right at our. Remember that something with color. Remember the whole thing about photosynthesis. What if what if what if light was? What if there was only red white and currently red white and blue was that one I mean I I did cover it in there but I just said they have chlorophyll those basically I'd but is the this the expertise to the podcast for ransom. I like I like I like the idea of people discovering space way. Later than normal or stars in general navigation becomes a problem across the navigation. Yet that's very very true. There's a lot more lost pirates which I think is a good enough conclusion to move onto the next one. Because is that. There's actually a lot. Boxing this one. Yeah more-than-expected Anyway. Chemistry is the main question now. Instead of relegating lightning round. I think just like travel. In general would have a lot slower. It would have developed a lot. Slower development would been weird also like a whole climate like ramifications. I think it mellows out the climate like. I don't think you have as many desserts and you'll have more water saturation. The atmosphere below the cloud layer. I duNno they'll get lock going on here guys. We have other. We got another one next. This one's going to be less scientific. So what if it snowed styrofoam instead of snow snow reform? If you will I would've gone with Styris. No personally. Ooh That's much better. I will also go with Styro- snow all right mechanically. I have questions about this in a lot of really in every every situation I would actually think mechanically you can just ignore it. Bullpen but so okay trite actually comes from right. It's Kinda going for okay. So what basically what it was it was always overcast and we invented. Nanno bots to get rid of the overcast. Clouds and the side result of the Nano bots byproduct product is Styrofoam. They turned water vapor into Styrofoam is how they felt doesn't really answer much so things about Sarah Foam problem that we're gonNA run into probably isn't tyra foam like an impossible to like biodegrade or anything. Yes yes so. We were just get buried in it eventually. Touristy squeaky and STATIC CLINGY. Yeah static clinging ooh static clingy markets. Like that word. Would Sarah Foam Snow create ridiculously strong? Lightning I don't I don't think it would You no I refused to admit that. That's side effects. No basically explanation just cal. Pretty Much I. I don't think it would be. I don't think you would have enough volume. You need like a bunch of Styrofoam going on large. Okay maybe maybe accumulated. I hate your make me think about this market so so just the literally like if you have Styrofoam pellets that make cloud in in the atmosphere. They're just shifting around in the wind and bumping into each other. They're gonNA create a lot of song heading to the cloud they're made of Styrofoam way. Has This is? This is why Canada comes into play. 'cause I was imagining just water like normal clouds and then styrofoam disappears from the normal clouds. Yes that one. That's what I was picturing. The water as a condensed Condenses alchemy like transforms into styrofoam the only in the drop stage not in the exact when it condenses into a cloud stage for example. No skips over that part of the condensation. Dark clouds create at lightning which is a great conclusion. But we're ignoring it now because you guys hated more clouds even form because that means star from would to evaporate it would mean the styrofoam would have to be less dense than air can starve be in like a vapor state a no. I cannot. I don't sure it can like all matter. Can we'll sire phone. Like certain Kiss Situations Styrofoam is like a chemical compound right is not controlling byproduct or something star for was a melting point. That is above one hundred degrees Celsius and then it has. Evaporation like at a certain temperature. It probably evaporates. I don't I I don't think I don't think it can actually evaporate styrofoam because I feel like will like markets. The saying I think it would. It would melt and then evaporate but I think I feel like Parsi foam would have a like lower evaporation point. It's not the right word is that it fits actress. Did I feel like there's really for it? Which is boiling point? Isn't it now now? It's probably wearing point for like if parts of the Styrofoam evaporate like it's not going to still remain styrofoam when it condenses again as you just like some shit. That's probably very very toxic. Yeah I mean at two hundred. Fifty degrees Celsius is when it's infinitely liquid form and I don't have the number for when it turns into a gas because no one tries to make styrofoam gets up. That sounds like a war crime honestly so it rains Styrofoam Get Snow Star from a solid. So we're safe. But if it rains Dr Phil we would be boiling and dead. I mean I think the main issued faces. We have to get rid of Styrofoam somehow. Boy I did. I did just learn while trying to see if you could make sorry foam gas but apparently if you dissolve styrofoam and GAC near Diesel Fuel. You basically make napalm so. I guess that's an option. Ooh He'll use more napalm okay so we have lots of napalm. I guess we converted to Napalm and use that for energy uses. I don't know if that were newell. Energy Energy in the form of Napalm. We solve we solve the climate crisis. Okay legitimate non napalm thing and the similar vein because I'm pretty sure it is a like petroleum product. There's probably some way if we had you know theoretically limitless amounts we could figure out a way to convert back into a fuel source. I'm going to hope that we can figure that one out for my own sandy sake. Okay next question. What if you had slash found a giant peach of the James? The giant peach is the intent here. Yes I assume that's the size. We're thinking of yeah commercial. You wrote this question Chris. I think I think I did was was set. Peach and Jameson giant peach like house size. It was double house is like thirty foot. I feel like it wasn't double house is but maybe single house size. We'll also it wasn't like hold on. Did he just get small? I don't remember how that book slash movie whatever went because there with a worm. Okay looking at a picture from the cover. It looks like the pitch is Abou thirty five feet tall thirty five feet pretty big peach that that just eyeball and the Kiddo next to the next to the kid probably like four feet tall next to it. Yes and there's like a bunch of them that would fit. Maybe maybe it's maybe twenty five. Let's say let's say a twenty five foot peach so how sized. It's the size of a house is well. I'll tell you what I'd Absent. Goddamn literally not giant bugs. Move in with me smart. You don't really remember what happens in that book slash movie. I remember it rolling. Kind of all our birthday rolls. They travel on it like in the ocean and stuff. I remember there on the ocean. They they dig out some tunnels all of the seems wildly impractical. I'm looking at this. I'm just looking at the Google image results for James the giant peach and just kind of like trying to piece together the movie. I don't WanNa read the Synopsis. So I'm GonNa look at pictures. I liked it. Yeah with with Larry. Like three clicks. You're probably be at a wikipedia summary But interiors guy try a piece it together from Google images. God there's a lot of horrendous looking plays of J. Somehow even more disturbing that weird like claymation that already was I mean I've a lot of nostalgia through that movie I did too until I related to good. Look that centipede that centipede public. I I don't like any I don't like this guy. I imagine it would scare kids now. I'm looking at now. I am not very happy either. Even the spider who I thought I liked is really creepy. Yeah Oh yes at the worm. That has the sunglasses. Yeah I remember that movie okay. That's what are we going to do with our actual big giant peach though so this is kind of similar to one of our. Would you rather where we had a giant Pumpkin? Oh yeah and we said they would rot in that. It was not good and I would probably be the same case with this only probably worse because peach. Peaches have like way more sugar. Yes you definitely could not live in your giant peach. You do not want that. You'd probably want to get rid of it as fast as you could. What's the fastest Predator? Giant Peach is. This question is actually impeach the fastest. It's got to be tough because unless you know somebody you can't hire someone on short notice. Get where you're giant peach because go take you at least a couple of days to find someone who believes you. I mean just put like a craigslist ad saying a peach. Listen to help you because no one's GONNA come prepared. Take your giant peach while no like everyone that wants to have a free. They know how to take the whole thing. But you cut it up. And everyone gets a piece of Giant peach you say that but if everyone takes a one by one square of like a foot by foot square. Peach look at a lot of peach to take home. What I'm seeing. My mind is is plunging chainsaw into the side of this giant pige and just having like juice and pulp flying literally everywhere. And I'm actually quite upset right now. I imagine if you get this giant peach. It's GONNA BE PRETTY. Obviously you have it in. That's a big deal and you might get covered by the news and when you're on TV you just say this giant peach. I'm giving it away for free and give them parts of it away for free. So how does it take you to get the word out like you have a giant peach in your backyard? I don't think it'll be that difficult. Neighbors noticed maybe at the local news. Same Day a but it runs in the paper the next day you can if you just post on twitter. I'm sure they'll come. Would you believe it on twitter or would you just think that it's photo shopped I mean you can get your neighbors to post it to so generally peaches the last three to four days on the counter. It's not a lot of time. I think three to four days is plenty to find people to eat it. I know seen a separate problem as well wishes that they also peaches have pits. And that you can't eat Yeah not a problem. You just have a big pit you plant it and then you reach it because I think you're underestimating. How much peach there is because I come back if if imagine a foot by foot Cuba. It's too much peach because not only lasts for a couple of days. I think year underestimating. How many people will be interested in this giant peach? Okay let's say you. Have you take a six inch by six inch piece of piece of peach? Yes so that means there's going to be eight pieces per cubic foot if you have a twenty five by twenty five cube say twenty by twenty twenty twenty five foot diameter peach. Let's say equivalent to twenty by twenty you've just to clear cutting off the corners. That's four hundred cubic feet times eight. You need thirty two hundred people to come and get a six inch by six inch chunk of peach. That's a lot of people actually seems doable. When you put it that way. Yeah how big is a town? It takes a a village to eat a giant peach. So you have four days. Say Three days they want a countdown with loss. Getting the word organizing plus the three or four days. If three days three two hundred people eat a thousand people a day to cut out there. Chunk of Peach. Maybe like organizing. The actual event might be a struggle to like get people in line and stuff but to actually get the people there funnel thousand people into your backyard and backout cash shouldn't be too hard. It might take a while. It might get Kinda stressful but I think you could do it and I think you wouldn't have any problem finding the people I think. Even when it's a big deal I think thirty two hundred people to come into my backyard is ambitious. Could you move it on short notice? It's going to be heavy. Yeah Unit Weight of Unit Weight of peach. I don't think you could move without machinery. But you could get machine like like you need you heard of this piece. You could get machinery but that might take some time to get machinery. Yeah if you're stuck to this three to four day deadline you could probably. He could probably rent it with days. Notice you can accompany. Yeah maybe but then like. How much money are you willing to spend to get rid of the speech? The whole point of giving it away for free is that you don't have to pay anything. They just come and take it right. You don't WanNa pay transport it. What if you made shirt said? I ate the giant peach and sold them with the peach. As like an event. Yes see. That's that's what I'm saying. You try to make this a big event and then people come because they want to be a part of it. Yeah like I is part of the peach you can get out of. We'll also you could definitely get fucking like Dole sponsor this event or something and move on their dime. Get paid for this okay. You can make this work. I think he definitely make this work. I think he can. I'm less optimistic about it than you guys. I think three days is a long time. I think there's definitely some issues there and then after three days you're fucked wants Big Rotten I think if I think a few years ago three days wouldn't have been a lot of time but with twitter and others like social media and Steph. It's plenty of time All right I'll I'll defer to you guys on this one but instead of a peach house our next question just about regular house assuming what if your house could transform into a giant robot not very regular. I you said that important question. Is it just your house or if everyone's house could turn into a giant robot it says your house where it is just your just your house okay. So can it like I can walk around and stuff? I'd imagine so otherwise it's just like a weird shaped house. Okay like move around and I guess not walk around the only the transformation just an antenna comes out of the roof there. Robots that don't walk. I guess okay well when you say how giant robot you imagine transformer like. It's it's the it's got two legs two arms. It's you know it's a robot. I don't think it's really that useful though unless you're in the middle of nowhere 'cause you're just going to destroy everything ride you love it you get up you have your laddy make into the street and your house isn't wider than the street. Yeah but you won't be able to like do anything with it. It can stand up but can't walk around without destroying stuff it would save you on moving costs. Yeah you could you could. You could snowbird down to Florida so you would have to really think about how you like store your furniture during the transformation process. But how'd you get it down there? Walk without destroying the roads. The roads are probably not graded for giant robots. That are House. Wait hold on wait. A house or disrupting traffic way. Houses way between eighty thousand and one hundred sixty thousand pounds. That's a lot of pounds dude weight of I mean they do sometimes have those portable houses in A. They moved them like that. So it's possible in terms of wait. I think I will say I feel like the big difference. There is that you have you know a bunch of points of contact with the road there. As opposed to like one all the weight is going into it in one spot into one way. Yeah Yeah Okay so class eight trucks. Thirty three thousand pounds. Yeah but as far as weight distribution give it a one legged delay can be pretty fat a lot more servicer than tire. But it's also going to be slamming down with every step it can walk gingerly. Okay we're on a walking robot worth it has treads. Instead it's like tank treads at the base and enlighten. Think tank treads doable. Because you have those houses that get transport on trailers yeah right but I don't how how. Why does it helps? I mean it depends on your house and how wide it is when it transforms. Because I've seen those. I've seen those houses transporter on trailers before but I don't remember how they ever fitted how they fit onto the road will be. There is a good video of getting stuck in a tunnel but incredible ignoring that. You design the House to be Skinny. Like it's like a halvor fifteen foot Or maybe twenty White House and then you ship it into halves which is kind of killing my point but there are you know. I think you can get away with a two lane. Highway should get you there. Do you think the cops would pull you over? What are they GONNA do? You'RE GONNA joint robot if they think you're you're malicious intent than you can. They may call them like in the military military. You gotta do your giant robot. I think our military can deal with giant robot. Probably yeah probably pretty easily particularly one just like you know a house right like it's a wooden robot. I mean do you want to. Would you want to be the president that took down the cool giant robot? That's actually a good point that is always the villain in all the movies. The guy that's trying to stop the robot Or The guy with the giant robot. Admittedly you have steph. What is making house non sinister as possible? Lots of hanging plants Like very cutesy cottage. Look I mean a house in general doesn't look sinister? Yeah we have a House. Robot like what it transformed like a you have to make sure like the eaves of the roof. Don't make like angry is shapes they have to like make like cute sad robot shapes and said they have to go the other way they have to maintain. Maximum cute factor. Made sure there are no red lights that could accidentally turn into is no any kind of mood. Lightings like get rid of like your Call the way you develop photos it darker darker darkroom definitely not exterior exposed. Which is a good idea. Anyway for dark with purpose of a dark room and lots of lots of plans in cute little like a cottage accoutrements to make it as non threatening adorable as possible. A cute old lady lives there or else you're going to get shot down by the military. I do think we can make this a popular toy line with house. Transformer things I am amazed at the transformer toy still like as a general rule yet. They're still popular your so just like how do you design a transformer toy. It's so complicated. That is very impressive. You can't even like sketch it out like. How do you sketch it even like a three D. modeling program? How do you get it to figure it out? And I know you're trying to drop like you're trying to you have a transformer that goes from a robot to a dinosaur like. How do you plan that out? Markets to clear answer that transformers actually exists from here on earth and has Rojas knows them and goes and talk to them and sketches them like one of their Frenchwoman. So yes so. When you when you flip back into a car does does your left pelvis go inside your rib cage or does it like kind of go off to the right accents. You're right because it is not possible. Allies bear from solved. All right another cloud question. What if clouds formed at sea level just to check? Is this. Just fog fun? I wrote this question. And that's what you guys asked when I wrote it but I mean like there aren't any clouds up high level it's exclusively sea level. Okay are down. Low See okay. Here's one thing that's not good for us is that the majority of lightning is in cloud lightning. Yeah that's not super great pretty bad other bad stuff. I think things are generally more wet right in general probably yet the water. The humidity is going to be way up. Because only so much atmosphere for water to go into now so basically like it's GonNa be all cloud and then guy always. I don't know how how tall clouds usually are like. How do you need to get before? You're above the cloud If all the water vapor was down like anything that was that wouldn't four Macleod is down. You're talking hundreds of feet. Hundreds of feet. Okay we'll neither wheeler from two that I'm thinking of is that I know definitely multiple layers of clouds and I guess all those would form at the same layer which is sea level. And we'll probably just be water at that point it just gets gradually less wet. There's a there's a water air interface that's grayer than normal rate. How does that? No that doesn't work. There's definitely ought to be right. You can't you can't transition not hard from water to air right. This is making my head hurt guys. You can't have like miss even if you have a very misty. Cloudy thing like they're still very much like here's the water water right. Oh yeah because because when when water when saturated air touches hits the water it pulls the water out of the air like you know whatever droplets come right out there and be become part of the big water so you're not going to Have you can't have half water? You can't have like air you're kind of buoyant in and maybe you like drowning. You can't have that exactly because air only saturates so much until just falls out of the air and becomes the big the big water as we call it like your term for it. Obviously visibility will be an issue to write. This is really the issue. The breathing might be an issue. Yeah how proving would work hot days really suck like us. Probably fires would be pretty rare. That's true so you got that going for you. England wouldn't notice okay important question. What happens when the temperature drops below freezing your thinking about you? I don't exactly know what is a cloud lake because it's pretty cold up there anyway. It is in clouds freeze. Clouds do freeze in extreme temperatures. Sears has the highest are not liquid droplets brother ice crystals. Okay pretty cool. It doesn't really work in my mind. No I'm not. I'm once again happy about this. Search next confuse me. Why you believe that. Freeze the salt. Crystals make them fall from the sky. The ICE crystals not wait anymore. Water droplets would so you can have frozen. Powdery fog. Okay. There'd be basically be like snow that suspended in the air but like smaller than snow. Probably Yeah I guess. I really don't like this guy's okay last one last last last location here your elevation above sea level determine if you get water or not. Oh yeah no actress. Healthcare Hunt is in. It was actually quite bed. Yeah you have a few hundred feet of water and above that is just literal desert. Yeah no one will live in Mount. There'll be no life in mountains at all. No not even just mountains just like anything above you right. Yeah literally level. It'll be no clouds no plant or anything. No more rivers rivers animals. No universe up top though not high not I would probably level yes. It's a right exactly like water doesn't exist. You'd have rivers that start halfway up kind of and then come down. Can you know yeah some places? There are some cities are blow sea level right. Yeah so that you can have rivers. They're seeking still have rain right. You can still have rain as long as you're standing in a spot that's below sea level at thank and it doesn't go very far you can have rain above steal. Because you'll be you'll be halfway up the cloud and temperature fluctuations can cause water to fall out of the air so you could have rain and you would feel it from what reports the cloud are above you. I guess the cloud is pretty big tall. The classes couldn't rain so you could have river so you could have some fairly normal water features below the top of the cloud line but above the cloud line. You have no more water features water will. I don't think plants would exist at all. Because we're there's water there'd be no Sun There's some sun on a lot High up plants. Where their son? There'd be no water. I guess it'd be a lot of like on the on. The transition between cloud layer and land. It'll be a lot of plants because it'd be very tropical rainforest. Sounds pretty bad guys. We did a bad thing here. Okay let's do this. What is less? Can we figure out how the entire climate works in hypothetical world on the spot right okay? What if everyone became vegan overnight so nobody eats eggs meats? Any animal products any animal products. Now do people know. This is going to happen overnight and repair for it or does it just happen and nobody really knows that's going to happen. What does it just happens? That would be tricky. Yes yes Generally generally like big big big big picture. This is a positive yeah. Yeah positive is if it's gradual to positive yet not for like animal cruelty. I mean it is for animal cruelty sake but I personally care a little bit less about that. But what is good is just energy distribution level thinking like food chain every time you go up the food chain up front plants up to animals you lose a lot of energy and that takes a lot of plants you know it takes X. Energy with plants to make a cow sustainability bottles better efficiency yet in terms of stability. It's great plants are the base level. Most efficient thing for us do you like if you were trying to survive on Mars or something. That's why Matt Damon Group potatoes and cavs other reason but also yes I suppose also I know that like cows specifically are actually very bad for the environment which is really funny to say but big methane producers in methods of greenhouse gas. It just really hard to take seriously because it's just like Oh so cal farts Cal Far they're pretty much fart Fleming if we're not eating them and there's more calves and then there's more methane well no. I'm not eating that we're not farm- yeah exactly there's GonNa be way less cows and visit wild cows. There's going to be way. Let's them very soon. So this is actually a problem. Is We have a lot of pretty unfortunate food wastage in the short term while this bounces back out in the short term. I don't think we'll have enough food for everyone in the short term. That's also true. Some people are going to have to starve. I mean there are a lot of our bulk foods or Vegan like rice and breads yet. But there's a lot there's a lot of people on the planet who do rely on eating meat. Are there like above all else? We'll know what I mean. Like for a decent chunk of their nutrition. Yeah you have all of them switch. There's going to be people that are unhealthy and there's GonNa be some problems but I think like I don't think we're GONNA have like a half. The People Starve to death type scenario. I can't do so like like like you. Think about the fact that like we have like constrained food production and a lot of places anyway as it is and suddenly you know. Let's say forty percent of the food that has been is being produced can no longer be lanny. One and that forty percent is taking away from the other part. That's Benin I guess I'll go to be all hold on. I wish we could actually do math on this now. Well Oh well so I know that. Like a lot of our corn production goes to feeding cattle so fear radically you can reroute. Whatever is being used to feed the animals like this seems kind of cruel. Sorry animals animals die right. Counter counter intuitively. Everyone going Vegan kills all the animals. Yeah so if ever became Vegan overnight all the animals would die. I think actually unfortunately sort of yeah. That's the only inclusion. I need these questions. Holy Shit. Hey Guys. What if storks actually brought babies can restore carry a baby real? Talk that the questions. F we can just Google that. Oh Yeah we should. We should actually check that. I feel like they probably could babies. Aren't that heavy. Yeah that's true. Probably potentially large enough to at least imagine carrying an infant so they could store could imagine it. There was a lot of heavy in that sentence. So in this scenario where the where the snakes getting the baby's that's not for us to know Chris. How're these BABIES COMING TO BE? Well when a man loves woman so that still happens and then the star comes and gives it to someone else. I don't I think that there's I don't want to go down. This road just gets complicated. What if what if I don't I don't think you can stole the storks have to somehow generate the baby's not like that hold on okay so in a stork nest. A baby is a baby machine. Spontaneously join US shortly. Loves a woman now in a man really loves the woman somewhere. Ten Mile Radius Stork Nest. A baby appears in it. They order a baby and that's where it appears they go to Amazon. Say I WANNA baby. Click add to carry checkout. It appears in the stork's nest. Okay so Amazon prime supplies historic with babies. What does this actually do? This is actually do anything. Is there any impact from this assignment to and a lot more yet? A lot of changes loving women avoid a whole pregnancy. That's nice that's true we ask good. Birth is more pleasant right or much more surprising. Also right yeah. If you don't I guess you have. How do you know that you're getting a baby? Because the baby show porch cams that sends you alert. When you're deliberating driver right yet. Ring stock goes through the roof. Guys the now government mandate to make sure there's no abandoned babies. Yeah does it bring it to your house or bring it to you because both of those raise further questions to to the house like it's gotta get your like delivered to your house door. What if you live in an apartment building it goes the same place as jury? Duty would Okay I'll box based on like your voter registration or yeah let's say it's federal federal cool Thebenz storms or current resident. Here's a baby right. I'm trying to. I'm trying to avoid like babies dying because I feel like that would happen but I don't WanNa talk about that. What happens so is there still all right? We've got we've got to raise though for the room. Do you have sex than the baby comes? We just need to like get this out in the open. 'cause in what's the timeframe you need to have sex for the BBC. Come right I I think. No Comes randomly the whole point of the stork stories to avoid the sex talk? That's true okay. Oh I love this sorry I was looking to see if any if there are any store predators that we have to get rid of to make sure that our babies were safe and so it's so far without going into the actual article. The adult birds are very rarely preyed on by American alligators. What soon the story that has led to. Don't get eaten by alligator which ask for baby deaths go is one of the cooler ones. I guess he asked not. I mean I hate to say it's not the worst but it's not the worse I wanNA know. I WanNa know if you have like any warning before it actually shows up. You know. That's kind of my question here. It just depends on if you have to request state or just happens right. Is it literally just like when you reach a certain love threshold between a man and woman? There's a baby I guess that's probably that'd probably be because when whenever you say the stark thing he say when a man loves a woman right. Yeah so that's part of it okay. I like that. That might actually be an improvement. If only people that were very much by divine right of the store guys are in London. Earn it you're actually right okay. Here's a further question. There's like a time limit between your so. You get a lot of babies right. Yeah many babies. As a certain number of babies I think relationships starts falling apart. It's like by God Jerry. You'd love my life but like we have seventeen like babies already and it's and they're all under three years old. We have to love each other less. I'm leaving you how to take these babies to get to you. Like where at least starks coming from. I guess I don't know where starks live. I see your point. Storks don't live everywhere. We thought it was Amazon Amazon Amazon prime so two days pre or like you can pay four bucks for one day shipping. I think you're talking about like Amazon. Like the place Amazon storks there but there are alligators so Florida. At least yeah. Okay I guess. People in bad clients storks get no babies. That sad I shouldn't live there. Be stored them restored friendly all right all right next one. What if you couldn't enter somebody else's personal space now how how like dimensions of your personal space good question? Here's what are the dimensions of your personal space. Do think it is a personal thing. And that's not a joke. Yeah if you're very extrovert. Have you have less personal space? I'm going to say arm's length for me That's a big space too big space. I mean it's pretty close here within arm's length for you. Would I guess some things like if I'm on a subway I'm good up to lake moderate touching? What what is moderate Tony? Martin's like maybe you know what actually over that won't you explain? What light touching is okay so if I want to subway now in private parts? There's there's a there's a bubble they're okay but like the subway and I'm holding you know what I'm standing and like someone behind me is like ev on bumps like lightly bump into each other or like your arms are somewhat touchy. That's not I don't feel like my personal spaces invaded there. So but like if someone's like pushed against me I'm like okay now. This is too much. Hey Marcus what are the rules? If your end say a grocery store that's the maybe a better judge of your overall personal space. Taller vary based on where you are. I guess it probably does actually by necessity. Why I don't know I don't think personal space necessarily means you're uncomfortable. I think like you can let someone into your personal space if you want to. Yes that's what. Yeah you can never get closer to anybody else than they want you to be man. This feels like a real improvement guys via some good today. It was just makes everything easier when I'M IN MY SCENARIO. I'm saying that like you can your personal space in normal weight context. You can let people into your personal space but in this scenario you can't oh I see you're saying I was very real problem for the future are species Yeah because yeah if it's general to everybody if everybody is on the same line of personal space I mean there's definitely across bubble in that already right bat species time it are there any Going back there any implications if it is a double consensual for you to be able to get into. Somebody's space like they have to be okay with you being in that space. I mean I think socially that's kind of what it is right now right but you'd like physically can do you can F- you can physically make someone uncomfortable in the subway right or like like you know you can't. You can no longer awkwardly hug. Someone and I think that kind of the ramification is that like handshakes and hugs and stuff become much more meaningful because it is a like literal. You know trust touch. Yeah which is Kinda cool also like God damn the one person that's now awkward on the subway is going to be way more awkward because we'll just have like around them right. Yeah the whole train car bitter Personal Space Sam Stone. Down at this. Like fluctuating personal space. I don't think that's the definition of personal space. I don't think there's like just let me just say that. Look like if I'm on the subway. I don't feel like my personal space invaders. Someone is literally like two inches from my face for someone. Who's doing that when I'm in the PASTA THE GROCERY STORE? Yes I feel. Like provide personal. Space is being invaded invade. Yeah it's they're invading your personal space but on the subway your lighting them into your personal space. Still your personal space They're making what I'm saying. O K. Alice changes everything to do. We want to rehash the whole question to go through this iteration. Let's after all this. We finally get what Chris Assay and probably some of our listeners. Were like yeah obviously. That's what you're saying the whole time right and I apologize for being slow but we are going to move onto the next question and I. I think this will be the last one we do today. What if your skin change color with your mood a mood ring a mood ring? But it's more like a mood. Skin is your way with words. That makes you so excellent at this marcus. So what colors is it like the color of the mood ring or is it lake actually not know what colors murdering either and then too? I mean I think we would very quickly pick up on what they are like. It's GonNa take his angry. Yes that red means. Angry and green means envious and purple means embarrassed and blue means sad like whatever. The colors are yellow means. Happy maybe and on. Oh yeah whatever. You can't hide your emotions and yeah that's the that's the main thing here so I think like social interactions. You lose a lot of it in any of the. You can't lie scenarios you lose a lot of the social pleasantries You can't be polite for the sake of being polite. I mean you can't if you don't care but yes someone like makes you uncomfortable or angry or someone says something. I think you really sad you. It is out there like there's that extra level of openness. I guess what did you probably wouldn't even be a bad thing overall. I think actually the anger was really interesting to me because it can actually. Dow could actually work in your favor if you are in like a customer service situation and your maintain your cool like you know in your speech and everything failures growing redder and redder as it's going on and how like you count the person you're talking to start getting. I do really like the idea of you smiling like just like that blank. Like retail smile right and like nodding your head and you know all the pleasantries but yeah you are just like turning bright fragging read. Yeah like that Seems Pretty. Great to me actually could use her tier event. Like if you can manipulate your emotions can use it as camouflage so you see so you have to take method acting to your whole life. Yeah speaking of actors acting. It's way harder acting zone was harder. Yeah that'd be way harder ALMAC could you do like a like a blue man group act except you flash emotions with music which is very sad. Yeah Super Chill Gatorade frost level chill. But yeah if you are a person who can freely manipulate your own emotions. You could do like a stage act with that. We pretty sweet. What do you think is the most desirable colour to be aroused? What would what color would that be? Asylum Pink. Yeah just sit fuck pink. I said a soft soft Krill. Ever heard of yeah. Why do we have to recall these crayons? Oh I see okay well. There goes the G. Rating for this episode. Oh God whatever anything else I can say is I was. I was GONNA say that my favorite trail color is Mac and cheese. But that sounds Kinda stupid after one emotion is Mac and cheese. I guess just contentment right. Yeah it's contentment. I think the most shafted crayola color is orange red because it got literally replace with Red Orange and I think that's B. S. for that color now I like red orange more than orange rid. Yeah but could you? Could you imagine like creole color as orange red? And then he's like Nah. You're off the team forever band. It's like there's like a list of I want to the CRAYOLA factor museum factory I think it was in Pennsylvania through the museum our factory and they had like the list of the discontinued creole colored. That's a short list ten of them and it's like orange red and then like four like clearly just dumb names and like you know four or five like Oh. Hey Yeah you couldn't call something that nowadays with our current sentiments on how long orange red was a caller before they change to red orange I think it was a couple years and I wonder what that meeting was like. I like the idea. There is someone who like their life's work was creating Orange Red and they were like. Hey we saw Steve. Had this really good idea. What is it Red Orange? Their life is flat for for there is I mean they probably had like a bunch of corporate meetings to decide if they should change it to red orange. Yeah but they they left Jim out because it was gonNA crush them. I mean no probably what happened was is that. Krill was only so big a company at the time and someone was on the expert. Ron was like doesn't orange red slow. It wouldn't be better and someone's like yeah. It does sound better. And then they switched it and All five minutes of four shafted but in my head. It's a grievous sin. That should not have happened now. I think it's I think it's changed for the better and we were talking about a question anymore. No so since. This episode is getting closer to over. We need to leave time for our. Would you rather question as a weird way to frame the would you rather? Yeah well back to the current back. I couldn't remember we. Did you rather than the lightning round and I was ready to end the whole episode So I'm squeezing it in. Okay would you rather number two thousand two hundred from our good book of three thousand? Would you rather questions? Would you RA- Chris yes I would rather me. Would you rather be able to bend your body like a snake or ski squeezed through tight places like an octopus? Do I still have like a normal human bone abilities. Yeah imagine your bones are just like all spines. Can you think of any way to put that? Because I think that's the best way seeming. I throw my entire arm there's like a billion joints. Yeah Oh what is the octopus scenario? All your bones are quite squishy. Now your bones. Oh thank you both could either be squishy or your bones. Could just like disassemble into little bits? So that you could squeeze into spell spaces bones assemble it's tricky because octopuses They don't have bones they are just all squishy and the only thing that prevents them from going through tight places. It's their beak. Is the only hard part. Meanwhile we have lots of bones. I don't think you WANNA have no boats. I think he want to be able to dislike. Like the drawstring puppets that are held together by string and like you let go the string of collapse like you can do that. Say That we can just we have control to make our bones rigid or squishy okay. That's that's probably less grow grid. Yeah I agree If that's the case I don't really see why being a snake would be better than being knocked plus or having those octopus abilities has basically the same thing. Only more extreme right. Well no I think if you're Benjamin by like a snake you still have blake some strength in those limbs wellbeing bendy and I think the octopus kind of like a you are a like barely motioning. Blob ish more like you. Don't have as much like a snake with arousing. Strong Octopus squishing itself into whole is not like strong that makes sense Yeah like what scenario? Would you need to be flexible and strong at the same time? I mean always. That's being good person will like to further extend. You can emotionally all the time physically less often. 'cause like as humans are already kind of flexible and being a snake. Our bending like a snake doesn't make you that much more flexible I am trying to think of like literally the circumstances where these this would come up besides like the bedroom blake. The octopus is obvious. You want to squeeze through like a small space. That's obvious off. That come up comes out every once in a while. Ooh vending machines which would be more useful in a vending machine situation. Definitely Abia Snake. I would say this is now the debate. Would you rather have to get into a vending machine as a snake or an octopus? Okay here we go easy snake because you can't legally snake reform in the vending machine yet. Can you reform only party your body? I hate this. I hate all of this. Can you like half half human half octopus half human? I think you're snake your snake all the time okay. So snake snake goes in the flap and then up pretty easily and then has the power. the octopus can really get in there. Yeah octopussy be able to fit yourself your entire body in your whole top half it and like go tat with two. I don't think that's useful. I mean you can get a lot of stuff at the vending machine if you're robbing a vending machine. The snake is just like okay. More casual less commitment. So do you want a lot of stuff out of the vending machine or do you want a little bit of stuff actually? It's not just that the snake is going to be very limited. You can still get up like as far up as your arm can reach sure. Colonel Limited to like the bottom. The bottom maybe three rows who the gum is usually or they put the gum and maybe lifesaver. Sometimes they say sometimes the second round bad us pop torture okay popular. It's okay but a one is like where the fritos Raton during a lot. Less but chips and stuff some candy lot of gum so I guess under that scenario given that the only thing we can think of what is really relevant vending stealing vending machines. I want to be able to squeeze through tight places like an octopus. I also think the octopus is useful in other situations other than just vending machine. But yes I think I'm in. The same boat is mark. Yeah I don't think he's really away. Make an argument for it in a vending machine specific area. Kind of have to go octopus. Aright we did it did we. We did it. We did something you did something okay with that. If you enjoyed that. I don't know if anybody did.

Halloween Spoiler Discussion: The Twists, Callbacks, Ending, and Will There Be A Sequel?

"Hello, everyone and welcome to slash home. Daily for Wednesday October twenty fourth two thousand eighteen today's episode. We're gonna have a spoiler filled discussion of Halloween two thousand eighteen this is editor in chief, Peter Surata. Joining me to this podcast slash home. Managing editor tak- Paul a little Hello senior writer, Ben Pearson. It was going on and writer, Chris Evangelista high. He's here today. And okay, we're going to get into our spoiler discussion of Halloween, which means if you haven't seen the movie, you should stop here. Go watch the movie, it's a good movie and come back because we're gonna be spoiling everything. All the major twisted turns you'll been worked. But you know, we have all given our opinions on this movie on this week's water glare think or previously. I think it's fair to say that we we all enjoyed this movie. Some people loved it like Chris. Some people thought it was okay. Air thought. It was good. I thought it was good guys. I think we all enjoyed it though. We wanted to have an episode where we could dive into spoilers and just dissect this thing, so. Let's start things out with. I'm wondering what you guys think of this. Because one thing I think that's interesting is this movie is getting really positive reviews from a lot of critics. And this to me seems like it's the force awakens of hoeing movies where I it's like literally, actually even more. So than the force awakens, even not even in the broad aspect of how force weakens. You know, reiterate the beats of a new hope this like has moment many moments from the original Halloween, redone. Maybe in a variance yet. I feel like force waking got a lot of flack for this and critics are loving this movie. Because of the the fact that it's kind of. A at times shot for shot ideas are being remade here. So I wanted to this movie is a direct sequel to the first film, you know, it's it's throwing everything out. It's around all the other sequels out. And you know, the force awakens isn't doing it is very much a film following three other films, and you, and I guess three more want to count the prequel so six other films, and for them to do sort of like the same story as a new hope does seem a little derivative whereas with Holloway, lean since it's serving as a direct sequel to the first movie, it makes a lot more sense for this to have so many call backs to that first movie, at least that's how I see it. But I I feel like many people going into this movie. Probably haven't seen the original hallway in in years and probably don't realize how much this movie is you know, winking. In nodding at the the fans of the franchise. I mean for me it's impossible to divorce myself from that line of just because I'm such a big franchise fan. But you know, I saw it over the weekend with my wife who is familiar with the franchise, but doesn't know it like, I do doesn't know every single shot and all that stuff, and she really enjoyed the movie even without picking up on all those, you know, Easter eggs, if you wanna call it that. So I think it is possible to just enjoy this film, even if you're not like a Halloween obsessive. But if you are a Halloween obsessive. I it has an extra level of. I don't wanna call it fancier because I hate that. But I guess is it's bordering on fan service. I think. I think. I'm sorry. I was just going to say I think for me like the reason that maybe the movie's getting a little bit more of a pass than force awakens in terms of that comparison is because force awakens sort of keeps the same thematic beats as what a new hope had. But this one. I mean, there are a lot of those sort of fans Servizi moments characters getting killed and almost exactly the same ways and some are more egregious than others in this new Halloween. But I think the reason that people really like a lot of the called axes because I would say a majority of the callback in the new Halloween sort of our reversals of what happened in the original. You know, it's commenting on the original. It's it's sort of it's it's flipping things a little bit and changing the thematic meaning behind it. I think my favorite example of this is since we're in spoilers. I'll go hunting talk about it. The very very end of the movie, this is I think my favorite part about this whole movie actually is that. Laurie strode spends most of the movie running from a from a Michael Myers and worried about where he is. And the camera stays with her and she's going through the house, and we have no idea where Michael Myers is. That's where a lot of the tension comes from at a certain point, though, the perspectives flips and we stay with him. And we have no idea where she is. And that is really exciting. That's that's the movie itself, you know, drawing this line and saying that we are no longer interested in the victimize her. We are interested in the victim and how she is taking back her own narrative. So I think those are the kind of reversals that are exciting for people and and change the game a little bit more. Whereas for force awakens was just a little bit. More of like, this is more of the same kind of thing. Okay. Let's let's actually talk about the reversal of this. Because I think that's what's so interesting about this movie is kind of how it kind of reverses the situation. Of monster in the victim. This is the most interesting part of the movie for me. And this was the big discussion with a lot of people. More. So than like, you know, what was the scariest part of the movie because its not applicable scary movie because really works here is the idea of a slasher film. That's responsible in many ways the way was watching him a fault abridgement Halloween, but all about just to Latian in violence in. How can we cause harm to victims and a lot of revelant? And this is the kind of takes us back in and wants to examine. What the actual natural. Human response would be to a slasher situation and how that would reverberate with the victims. And that that's what makes this movie special. And what makes it really stand out especially from every other Halloween movie beyond the first one is it's interesting asking the questions that every other slash movie has been to irresponsible ofttimes in good ways. Wiz. I enjoy even question. So that's why I'm if we do see a new wave of slash movies going forward. I'm curious if they'll take this saying that screaming invented a self-aware slasher, this is a slash movie. That's. Socially conscious. And I think that's the big difference big reversal between this and pretty much every other movie that is similar do it. Chris. Would you be interesting seeing a new wave of that kind of movie? I would this movie is very smart it's smarter than almost every Halloween sequel ever made, and that's our problem because I love almost all the sequels even the bad one. But this one is very clever and. It's clever in its approach because it has hindsight it can look at the other films and study them and see where they went wrong and do the opposite of them. So it has that going for it. And if other slashers follow that route, I think that could be great. But I have I have a really bad feeling because Hollywood has has a tendency to miss why something works. They just see it works, and they take the wrong lessons from it. So I had this really bad feeling that we're going to get a bunch of slasher movies that are just cheap and lazy, and it's pretty much what happened with with the scream generation where scream was very clever, and then the you've got very diminishing returns where every film trying to be scream had that same. Yeah. It was all teenagers talking way above their intelligence level. Right. We don't always just can't people from like the CW wherever it was called that. So I have a bad feeling. We're in store for that. But I hope we get a few more movies that are as. Self-aware as this. I think a lot of people are actually making comparison to terminate or two especially in terms of the life changing trauma that her character has gone through. And how that has affected not only her, but her kids and her relationships with her her, grandchildren. I mean, she's definitely in full on Sarah Connor here. Yeah. There's there's no question about that. I just think it's great that that Jamie Lee Curtis had, you know, this movie gave her the ability to play the same character. But a version of this character, that's more complicated than what we would expect somebody who is fully aware of that trauma and also has dealt with it in in ways that maybe have harmed her own family. But at the same time like she's alternately proven right in the end of the movie, like the triumphant the triumphant moment in the film is that she was right. And she knew what she was doing the whole time. So I don't know. I it sort of Val. Updates even though I guess it could you could argue that this was a. I guess that her methods were unconventional. They were. They were validated. By the end of the movie. It would does anybody else. Have any thoughts about that? I mean, just on the level that like jumping back. Just the fact that Jamie Lee Curtis is now a box office star. Again, I love that fact, and I hope I never thought I would see that happened. Now this late in her career. And I love that. But yeah, I mean, it's it is interesting that. Like like, Ben said, she is validated. But the same time. She no doubt left a motion scars on Judy Greer's character. I mean, do degrees dirty Greer's character even says that at one point that, you know, sh her childhood was basically ruined because of how Laurie raised her and sure it pays off in the end. But that's not going to make those emotional scars go away. So it's it's someone interesting. And that that, you know, even though Lori is validated and things sort of workout in the end. There's still going to be baggage to deal with and I guess that ties into if there should be a sequel. When I originally saw this. I did not want her to be a sequel. I I was like I want this to be the end of it because it wraps everything up but having seen it again over the weekend. I kind of want to see just because I want to spend more time with these characters again, like I want more of Judy Greer's character, and I want more of Alice I want to see them do more. I love Jamie Lee Curtis Quebec. I don't know if she will or not. So I it's it's I wonder if there is no sequel if they'll still be these characters nipple deal with that that that baggage that still there. So it's so messy the way they leave. It mean, they as Chris said, there's all these emotional scars and everybody's still struggling to rebuild those bridges. And if the movie burns down the house because no the rebuild their bridges. I would like to see them trying to reconnect and reconcile what they've learned and how they struggled with Mike Myers possibly attorney and causing havoc again because it's not that easy to fix. Things that broke your family. Yeah. I gotta say like, even though I loved this movie. That's why I was hoping this movie would be I kind of wanted more of, you know, even though I think the Allison character is good and the actions. I forget her name as it gets Andy managed check does a very good job. I almost wish she weren't in the movie at all. I wish it was. Just Jamie Lee Curtis in Judy Greer's characters connecting through the whole movie. And at the end, they finally see I like, that's really I wanted more of that. And if we do get a sequel, I hope we do get or of that. Okay. Well, we'll talk more about a sequel little later, but I wanted to ask you guys we don't get to see how Michael Meyers gets out of that prison bus there. Escorting him from prison at one prison to another prison. We kind of get to see the aftermath of that. How do you guys think he broke out because I own a propose a a horrible conspiracy theory to you guys? Already can feel Chris hating this. Well, no, I think I think it's pretty clear that the doctor who I hate helped him escape. I mean, they don't show it. But I think it's you think it's that. I don't know. I don't understand how it could be anything else. I mean the duct. You know, the movie makes such a big deal of the doctor being like, oh, he's still my patient. So I'm going with him wherever he goes. I think that's David Gordon Green's way of letting us know like, you know, this is the guy who helps him break free and everyone else is dead. So no one can read him out. Well, I do think that's reasonable answer. My conspiracy theory is not reasonable. Okay. My conspiracy theory is that. Well, we know the Jamie Lee Curtis 's character or strode knows that he's being transported knows when that's happening. That is made clear in the movie, and she has said that she's waited all this time to kill him. Right. What if she was instrumental in having that bus go off the road? That's a. That's a really I don't hate that. I I don't think that happened because I think it's a character. But yeah, that is a very interesting twist and the move even has that scene where she's watches the bus drive away. And there's a shot where it looks like Michael Myers is in the window of her car. Even though he's not really there, and she's screaming and it really abruptly cuts away. So. I wouldn't be surprised if someone else actually has that theory from the way it happened. But I don't think that's what happened because I think it changes the whole movie if that's what happened and for me the doctor being so in the back the movie working so actively to encourage Michael Myers his rampage makes you think that you saw this is as a little testing lab, and he made it happen. And it's why he had to be on that bus. It is interesting that the doctor wasn't killed and that whole escape. Yeah. I just want to give a quick shout out to the way that that scene was shot that bus crash. I mean that is like one of the most gorgeous leave rendered moments in this movie. I think is just like, oh, yeah. The the fog and like the lights and everything being sort of off kilter, and like these these what are they wearing like a? Like jumpsuit, like a psychiatric ward sense just these figures like lurching, slowly through the fog. I mean that is like the most vodka tive, you know, the movies pretty straightforward in terms of like, it's visuals. I think but that was the moment where I was like, wow. This is like really gorgeous stuff. Okay, guys. Here's where I get a little nitpicky. I it's kind of ridiculous to me. I mentioned this in the in the water cooler podcasts that like this. The first, you know, thirty forty five minutes of this movie is all an orchestration to get Michael Myers. Not only out of prison. But to get him with his original mask to get him to gas station, where he can steal a jumpsuit, and, you know, find a kitchen knife somewhere like anybody else find that a little bit ridiculous. Do you want my stereo, dancer and my joke answer? Yes. So both okay. My. My joke answer is that. A course he found a gas station with a jumpsuit because he's a six foot four man and wondering on the road what it'll be a gas station needs some kind of fit him and normal clothes a jumpsuit will that's much cancer. My real answer is that not having the iconography and not setting it up. We'll just let people disappointed. So this way just gets it done the other way it happens. And it'll be it'll be like Jason voorhees always finds a hockey mask. And and if it didn't have that people be bummed out. So I feel like David is quickly and efficiently put main characters at one place as they can make it happen. So you can get to like comic image and forget about it. Because I think that if it hadn't happened quickly. We we'd be complaining about it right now as opposed to nitpicking about it. That's that's my personal view on that. Yeah. I don't want to nitpick it too much because it really didn't bother me. It just I kind of chuckled at it. I did find the true crime set up. This was intriguing, but I don't feel like they went into it. That much like I feel like they could have said something about these podcasters are kind of like trying to take advantage of, you know, this horrible situation and. How no it just seemed strange that. There's nothing being said about that. It's just kind of there because it's relevant in its today. I disagree. I want to get that in a little bit. When we have a certain section. I know we're going to be talking about. Okay. Let's talk about the David Gordon greenness of the sole thing. I. And I'm not sure if this what you wanna talk about Jacob. But I was a little bit bothered by the kind of moments of humor not that. They weren't funny. It's kind of in the same way as the humor in less than I bothered me a little bit not that it wasn't funny because it was funny in that movie. And in this movie, it just felt like it was not the right movie. Like, I did mention the scene where they're having the sandwich conversation, which apparently one of our listeners wrote in and said that's a call back to Halloween five is that correct? Kris do you know anything about that? There are two bumbling cops in Halloween five who are meant to reference the bumbling cops in west Craven's last house on the left. So it could be a callback to that. Yes. Jacob. You wanna talk a little bit about this. Right. Yeah. There are two elements. I think that really worked me in feeling they are. Straight from David Gordon green because it's made me a drink. It's be a direct sequel John carpenter's Halloween, but at never point tries to. Replicate to the rhythm and tone of Holloway. It's very much its own beast to set in Saint continuity, and David Gordon green has this very specific ear inn. I for small towns in high school students and humor often comes from that group, and the high school senior high school students, this movie are really well drawn, even their limited seems and I think the small towns stuff really works. And I think that the little touches like the ostentatious sheriff was wearing a cowboy suit, even though he really shouldn't be those are the kind of weird specific touches that that feel movies, and you don't see those kind of like specific. So specific they feel real moments in lots of slasher movies where cops are in high school students are drawn with an extremely broad brush. So I really appreciated that touch brought in movie and I disagree with the humor for the most part. I think that the part that really works for me is the young kid being babysat who is. Is losing his mind cause no problem with that? But I think it's so fun to me might works. Is that it's funny in the same way, you expect to David Gordon. Green day McBride written seem to play out this kid, just funny. But also, he's funny. We'll also being terrified the kid manages performance where he is balancing being funny, while never did in the fact that he's scared for his life for me. That's another unique tonal balance that they've been going polls off you're going to hear from Kristen Ben guys they have a Gregory in this movie or the or am I over reaching? No, I definitely agree. And it's interesting because back when they announced this movie was happening. I am mmediately thought of they didn't say who the director was going to be right away. And I immediately started thinking of directors who are really good at aping John carpenter style like Adam wing guard, and I forget his name. But the guy who directed cold in July. They're very very good at for lack of a better word, ripping off with John carpenter or even Jeremy Saulnier is very good at that. John. Carpenter style. And but then when David green I was like what the hell that's not who I would have thought at all. But I really appreciate it that he didn't try to replicate carpenter because there really is only one carpenter and no one does which I carpenter does. So well, you know, journey Saulnier like I said comes pretty close, but no one can really rival a carbonated. So I really like that David Gordon green put his own stamp on this. And I I wasn't bothered by the humor at all. I think the movie needs the humor because this movie is. Yeah. When you remove the humor, this movie is almost too brutal. Like, I I don't have a problem with movie violence, and you know, there are some horror movies where the the more violent the better, but the violence in this movie is unrelentingly cruel. I want to say it's not like the other movies where I mean, you know, you watch that first movie Michael Myers, basically to strangled people to death. And it usually happens at the shadows. Here. He's like bashing people's heads through walls. It's really unpleasant to watch. And not only that he kills a child. Yes. I was very surprised at that. He kills that kid and ninety kill kit. We get to spend time with that kid. He's a stab as an actual character. He's not just someone who shows up and dies like even has that funny bit where he's like I want to go to dance class instead of hunting. So you actually get to sort of like that kid, and then he gets killed. That's that's very shocking and in a mixed attention later on when there's a child. Involved in a baby. Like, oh my God. They're not going to do the baby. Are they when I saw this at tiff that scene where he walks to the baby. There was a woman sitting Bobby. I literally hurt her like moaning like, no. Because she thought like he was going to kill the baby because they already established. He kills a kid. But thankfully, that doesn't happen. But so. Yeah. On that note, I feel like if you REM you remove the humor of this movie is too unpleasant. And I don't think it would it would go over as well as it's going over. Since we're just talking about the baby I think now is probably a good time to bring up. I wrote an article that actually had a couple of Easter eggs a rounding is sort of surrounding that one of which is the Jamie Lee Curtis provided some of the voice of that baby the infant crying. I guess she has this this talent of creating baby noises, and I guess they used a real baby cry when the camera was like right up next to the crib. But I guess when when it was sort of around the corner, and you could sort of here that for the first time, though is actually Jamie Lee Curtis doing a baby cry noise. So that was kind of funny and then in terms of why Michael Myers didn't murder that infants. Collider asked David Gordon green about that. And he said why doesn't he because that would be so rude? I think it was a consideration. It's terrifying its own right? And it was a last minute idea. I mean, why is there a baby crib in the living room? It was going to be your husband sleeping on the couch. But then he didn't show up, and we scrambled and put a baby crib in there. And then yeah, I thought it was interesting to see one ethical choice that he made in the movie. So that's the one ethical choice that Michael Myers. Knicks. The ethics of Michael Myers. That that could be its own discussion. Okay. Yeah. There's a lot of Easter eggs in this movie. You mentioned a couple of them. But one thing I wanted to talk about is. I think the most divisive character of this movie. And that is the doctor the new Loomis who I think if he was not in this movie, or if the twist that happened was not in this movie. I might be on the level of credit. Some love this movie. But I know Jacob and Chris both have some varying opinions on this. So Chris is go to you first. Yes. So I do love this. But the thing that keeps me from giving this like an even better review is that Dr character name, his doctor Satan, I believe and. So late. His name is Dr Satan start paying star Tena. Okay. Fine. Doc. So yes. So I will say I don't hate the idea of this character. So the character is set up to quote unquote, be the new Loomis Laurie strode even says, oh, you're the new Loomis. But he's the inverse of Louis where Loomis was obsessed with killing Michael Myers. And there's even a seen this movie where there's an audiotape of an actor, impersonate Loomis, Donald pleasant voice saying like, you know, there's no treated for micromanaging. She just literally just kill him. There's nothing to you know, there's no hope for this guy you need to just kill him and get him off the face of the earth and doctor Satan is the complete inverse of just keep a calling Dr safety. I'm gonna stuck in a stick with it. He he wa- he wants to keep Michael alive because he's fascinated with this idea of evil and having evil in the wild. You know, he he he wants to see what Michael will do in in the while. He says that in the movie like I've never seen him in the wild. And so I don't hate that idea. I think there can be something interesting done with that idea. But the way the movie handles it really pissed me off first of all I don't like the accurate performance playing the character. I think it's too broad. It's too silly. It's too over the top and another thing, I don't like is. Let me set the scene for you. So when I first saw this that scene where Michael gets hit by the car, and Dr Satan is like, oh, he's dead. I I thought Michael was actually really dead, and there's a scene where the doctor puts on the Michael Myers mask, and he's like making goofy sounds, and I had this terrible thief, feeling that the end the climax of the movie was going to be like the doctor as the new Michael Myers. And I got so furious. I wanted to like stand up leave the theater, thankfully that doesn't happen. But the fact that he puts the mask on at all really, really bug me. 'cause like, I don't know that mass doesn't belong to you, sir. Don't don't put that mask on it belongs to Michael Myers. And I just I just really don't like the way it's handled. I don't think Michael Myers needs any sort of assistance. You know, I will say to the movies credit. I like that. You wanna Michael Myers wakes? Up. He has no interest in working with the doctor. He instantly stepped on his head and kills him. I do like that that that's in there. But I just I don't think the movie needed it. I think it would be the same movie, maybe even better without this character. And without this twist. I mean, I think what bothers me the most is I don't believe that a doctor would make that decision would. But he is to eat like, I think if they had removed the scene where he kills we'll patents character. It would go over a little better. But the fact that he has like a secret knife in his pen is just a bit too, wacky Jakup. I know you actually like this character in this movie. I'll agree the performance is a little silly. And little over the top in ways. I don't think quite work. But conceptually, I think it really feed into what I find fascinating about this movie, and what type of earlier a little bit. Which is interesting reoccurring sitting out this movie that forty. Years later, Michael Myers stopped being this boogeyman except for everyone except Laurie strode Laurie strode who is there that night remembers how bad it was in the sheriff copperplate, but we'll patent note knew how bad it was because he was there too. But podcasters who show up? At the at the mental asylum will hoping for interview, and they publish lorries trying to say, hey, let's thing to happen. You forty years ago, we have because school students who are saying Alison why hasn't you grandma got over this yet? There's this whole idea that. All the people who were not personally involved in the trauma. Keep wondering. Hey, why isn't she over this yet wine people over this yet and be oh, this is no longer? Terrifying. Things curiosity. This is something cute and fun. We can put on being putting a podcast, isn't that? Interesting. All all these people have defamed Michael Myers in their minds. They have broken him down into being the story from forty years ago who's locked away in prison instead of the immediate threat. Laurie knows that he is in the doctor who's not Loomis who did not see things. Personally observed him in quarters. He's essentially Michael Myers fan. Boy, he puts on a mask because to him. Mike Myers is not bookie, man. He's a fascinating test subject. He's the guy would read about an article. Oh, that's fascinating. When you go. Tell my best friend over a drink about how fast thing these murderers were it's he represents the concept that like that. We have podcasts about our favorite serial killers podcast, go into great detail, but murderers, and serial killers and horrible events. And they're always treated as an end with a wink or with a good to business that is that does not take into account that people were actually hurt actually harmed, and this doctor Seema combined is is this. Figment of fascination as opposed to someone who actually causes harm and someone who is in the way he wants to encourage that. The lab lab tests of pretty Mike Myers back in the wild. Feeding the idea that we've desensitized ourselves to how trauma hurts people and how CO killers and murderers or actually creating nightmares at last and not just cool podcasts. So maybe it's a little sloppy. But I think all ties together in a way that I found it got me thinking, I'll put I'll leave it there. But I do think there's a big difference between the doctor inviting these podcasters than to rile Michael up bringing back the mask and trying to get him to emotion some way, there's difference between that and employing out a knife in doing what he did in the third act of this film. We've seen some pretty crazy fan boys. This guy's the ultimate fan. Boy, the fan boy kind of makes him like the Kylo Ren of Halloween, but. You know, if they were going to be the most awakens again comparison. I really think this just comes down to the Acura for me. You know, like all the stuff Jacobs says makes a lot of sense. And I do like the sound of it. I just it doesn't come across that way specifically because of the actor. I just think he's wrong for the part. No offense that actor. I'm sure he's he's good at other things I've ever seen him in anything else. But I I really don't like him here. And I wish someone else replaying this part the moment when he stabs the cop. I was like the the first thing that flashed through my head, which I now realize makes no sense. But I was like holy crap. What if this guy has been Michael Myers the whole time? Like, you know, because there's the whole thing about like, he doesn't talk. Right. And so my thought my immediate thought was like, wow. This is a huge twist. This is Michael Myers. He's been posing as this guy, and he's been waiting for this moment sort of like unleashes his true self. But like, I think we've seen Michael Myers. Kill other. People, you know, earlier by himself. So it wouldn't like who is this other guy that we think is it doesn't make any sense. But I was just like, wow. This twist is insane. And then very quickly. I was proven to be an idiot that could've made sense if they didn't show the doctor in the beginning with the podcasters because we never seen what Michael face was. But I very different body to. But the thing really quickly just to sort of piggyback a little bit on what Jacob just said about like the trauma, and specifically how this movie deals with trauma? I thought I thought a lot about the metoo movement during this movie, I thought that it, you know, the the trauma that Lori experienced. I thought was a really. Could be read as a stand in for any sort of like a sexual abuse that, you know, stories that we're seeing all the time in our culture right now. And I thought that the movie handle that aspect of it, really? Well, because like Jacob was saying there there are so many segments of the population that just sort of tried to brush that trauma under the rug because they weren't there. They didn't experience it firsthand. And I feel like we've seen a lot of that in our culture to. And I think that there are, you know, even like with with Laurie's own daughter like there's a moment win, Judy Greer's. Character doesn't believe her that Michael Myers is coming or is is a threat. You know? She's she's does something about how the world is like a full of lovely people and everything's kind of fine. And I thought that was like a nice comment that like even women not all women are are able to be on each other's. Side in in a situation like that. So that's the movie handle that in a complex way that I appreciated, but Ben gay you're on the doctor you've been keeping it from us. So I think I gotta side with with Jacob van or with them the Peter and Chris on this jacomb on sorry. Okay. Yeah. I forget if you've been. Chris you wrote this article basically talking about the whole lean ending, and if sequel is even possible could you talk about this this post? Yeah. So I touch on this a little bit earlier. Like like when I first saw this. I really didn't want us to be speedy sequel because and I say that elaborate on this in the article I like that Lori finally gets closure ear I like that. You know, she spent four years waiting to kill Michael Myers, and she finally has in theory killed him. And you know, a part of me thinks it we're kind of sucked have like the next movie. Be like, oh, never mind. You didn't kill him after all. And he's backing these killing where people it would it would just sort of rob this film of its power. But at the same time like I said if you're seeing it again over the weekend, I want to see what is because I enjoyed being back in this world. I enjoyed seeing Lori shirt. Again, I enjoyed the new character introduced so a sequel is very possible because of the way David Gordon, green shoots the ending. So to recap Laurie traps Michael in her. Her panic room in the basement. And then she she has all these which genius that we the whole movie we think this is a place for her to hide. Yeah. Really just a place for her to trap him. Yeah. That was very cool. I like it a lot and she's also like rigged her house up to go up in flames. And so she, you know, she burns the house down and Laurie and her daughter and her granddaughter hitchhike Atta there, and when the fire starts we see Michael Myers in the panic room looking up as flames burn around him. But then as you know, the the strode girls are driving away David Greene cuts back to the basement. And where Michael was standing is now empty now. He deliberately keeps the camera above the ground. So in theory, Michael could already be dead and laying on the ground and just out of camera view does at the same time. He could have also somehow escaped so it's really up to interpret. Nations, you know, the the the wiggle room. Is there if they want to do a sequel, they could easily have it be Michael got out somehow, but you know, I keep coming back to that of it robs this ending of his power to have Michael easily have escaped after that big cathartic moment where Laurie says goodbye to him. So I don't know. Well, we do hear some breathing in the credits, right? No sorry. I was on mute. That breathing demagoguery actually did an interview. And he that breathing is actually supposed to be Allison in the truck when they're going away. So he he did that on purpose make sort of like ambiguous. But yeah, what what do you take of the that that shot at the end of the zoom in on the knife? I don't know. I don't know what that me and my wife, actually when we saw it. She was like what what was up all that shot? And I don't know. Maybe it's just a commentary that. This family even though for now, they're safe. Their whole legacy is pretty much wrapped up in violence. Like that's just who they are. That's who the Strodes are at this point. I mean violence has really just colored their whole lives. I mean, even the Allison's father is dead now. So there's really like no escape, and there's maybe no way they're ever really going to feel safe. Really, you know, even if Michael is dead. There's really no what you get over this. I think and I think that's maybe what he's going for with that shot. That's sort of how I read it to just like they're defined by the iconography of this franchise of this. You know, that's that's Michael Myers weapon that has weapon of choice. That's the thing that we identify with that character. And they're they're driving away with it now, but it's still linked to them in this this way that sort of like in inextricable from from how they, you know, they're not going to be able to just drive away from the trauma that they've just experienced again. And I actually just thought of this. If you want to get really Freudian with it could be like a d masculinization thing where the knife is Michael Myers extension of his manhood. And now they've taken it away from him. And they they have it. Yeah. Totally now this is a little bit too conspiracy theory for even me, but some fans online, but we've that this is an indication that. That she the Jamie Lee Curtis is character. You know, has now become the monster that in the next movie, she could end up, you know, taking on the mask. Michael mayors is. Ridiculous. You you know, this almost half with Halloween four Chris can speak more to this. But holding four end with Laurie strode niece lashing out at her foster mother than Halloween five immediately, recons it. So it wouldn't be out of Roman possibility that there is a history of Halloween almost setting up a tarot it and is to be killers the next to one. What do you think Chris? I would I would personally hate this. But it would not be at align. Jacobs said. No halloween. Four is still in the normal continuity where Michael Myers is trying to kill his blood line. And it reveal it basically sets up the fact that anyone related to Michael Myers has his his killer. Gene. If you want to combat and actually rob zombies Halloween to touches on this, very briefly at the end where Laurie, you know, the new Laurie puts on Michael's may ask. But I I personally would not like this, and that would be like a reverse inversion of the Terminator franchise as well. Because then J instead of going from like Arnold being the the villain in the first one to the protector in the second one would be the opposite with channel occurs. This character in this one in the sequel or reverse Star Wars well. Oh. Okay. Jacob. I think you wanted to talk about the idea of slasher movie in if it needs to be scarier nuts. Yeah. This was a big conversation f- antastic fest after a play there where I talked to a startling number of people who are bothered that new Halloween isn't scary in. I agree. I don't think it's I think it's time. You don't think scary? Oh, if tension in like the fog sequence. Yeah. It's very tense. It's very thrilling. But I've never like actively scared. But here it's har- fan say they wanted to be scary. It makes you wonder how many slasher films are actually scary. I mean, I think Halloween is original one is very suspenseful. I think like Friday the thirteenth movies are a good time their their parties. I think scream is kind of fun, but I can't think of many slasher films that are actually scary like generally edge of your seat. Terrifying. In the way, I find harm actual harm movies. So I'm curious is Halloween scary for you guys. And does a slasher film needs to be scary. I want to have this conversation here on the aero quick. Well, I would think slasher. Movies. Generally have those jump scares. I don't think they're really scary. It's more of those moments. Those kind of like gimmicky moments of scare I kind of feel like the idea of Michael Myers is always scarier than seeing him. Just like a person invading, the suburbs. And like, you're not quite sure, you know, if he's around a corner, and he's lurking in the dark like that kind of thing the invasion into what is supposed to be a safe place is really scary. But I think in the actual execution of it. I've never really been scared in the way that things like I don't know the ending of kill list, for example, like anything like that that has more of a like a I guess to avoid spoilers for kill list. But but anything that has more of a I guess it's something that could be set in like the real world or something that actually could. I don't know it seems it seems more realistic. Somehow, do you know what I'm saying Jacob? Yeah. I mean like you said. I've been kill us as a terrifying. We'll be going to go example here that like really is all about existentialist dread. And we're about making leave the theater feeling unpleasant. Where's Halloween for all? The horror is still really exciting crowd-pleasing experience where you cheer and and laughing popcorn. It does. Extremely well. So I don't think it's a prerequisite. That'd be scary. I don't think that's the goal of Halloween personally. Chrissy probably seen more horror movies than any of us. What what do you think? I think the new film the new Halloween does have a few scary moments. But you know, they could be boiled down to suspenseful moments. There's there's this one scene where we'll patent is walking through this house after the babysitter and her boyfriend had been murdered, and that seemed is very tense, and there's a shot where he sees a figure in the bedroom under a sheet like a ghost, which is a call back to the original film where Michael puts on that sheet and David Gordon green holds this shot incredibly long where we'll patents hand is very very very slowly going to end what I thought over the weekend. Again, you know, the shot is coming going on. And there was someone theater. Just like oh my God. They couldn't take the tension anymore because he was drawing out so so much. So I think that stuff has has a way of scaring people at the same time. I don't know like there are very few horror movies. Even though I'm a huge horrible be fan that legitimately scare me. Like, you know, I'll feel dread every once in a while on certain films. But I don't know if I'm immune to it from watching the persona longer. I I don't know. But I think the original Halloween when it came out in nineteen seventy eight was very scary. I think nail in the twenty first century. You know, I it's it's seems very tame. So there is that removed to it. But yeah, I mean slasher movies. I guess it depends on what you want to classify slash movie. If you want to count something like that, the first Texas chainsaw massacre the slashing where we'll be I'd say that is very scary. That movie is terrifying. But on the most part like Friday the thirteenth and. A nightmare on elm street. They're not really scary. They're more about just. Entertainment. I guess I want to say I don't know we have gone really long in this longer than I thought we were going to. But I there's a couple more things. I wanted to touch on Chris today. You desert ical on how they almost kept the cannon from whole into in this movie, but they decided not to. Yes, David, Gordon. Green interview. The the new Halloween throws out all the sequels directly. It will the first one, but David Gordon green revealed that in early stages he really wanted to keep both the first and the ticket movie in continuity and canon for this, and he eventually changed his mind. And you know, I think it's it's a good thing. He did. So, you know, the second movie has this famous twist where it's revealed that Laurie strode is Michael Myers long lost sister. She was adopted by another family, and that's why he's he's trying to kill her, you know, but that really robs Michael Myers of what made him so. Scary in the first movie. What made that character scary was that he could go after anyone at anytime for literally no reason, he's just this unstoppable force of evil. And if you keep the the Laurie strode is his sister thing in there. It gives him a motive and David Gregory was saying, you know, they wrote they wrote that scene. There's this great scene in the middle of film where Michael stocks around hadn't feel going from house to house killing people and David Gordon green was like that scene really doesn't work. If we keep the sister thing in there because it's it would be asking the question. Why is he killing all these people? Why is he just trying to get to his sister? And that's what ultimately made them decide to cut Halloween two out of the continuity. And I know some hardcore fans whenever problem with this. I don't and I'm a big fan of series simply because John carpenter has even admitted that he wrote that he he basically pulled it added his AS because he he needed to find a good reason to make the sequel happen, and he thought that was the best thing he come up with at the time. And also, I know, you know, while watching the trailers TV spots for this movie. There was a bunch of. Like moments in the marketing that weren't in this movie. And you also did if intestine right up of that for the site that I will link in the show notes real quick there's a shot in a in a TV spot where we see the female reporter in the shower, and she gets startled by Michael Myers and inner slack. I think we've figured this out because it really makes sense if it was still in the movie if it really was Michael Myers because she gets why would she get attacked by him twice. So our theory is it's the male podcast or wearing the mask as a joke to scare her. And they probably just cut it out for time. Another few shots of. Laurie strode battling Michael Myers that aren't in the final film. And since then we've learned that the Phil had a much different ending. That was recent that was reshot before it was released. And I I was actually reading an interview David. We're agreeing today where he admitted that they basically found this movie in the edit like they shot a bunch of stuff that he didn't know how it was going to turn out, and you know, while editing. They got the movie they wanted to be now, and there is a completely different ending where all three strode women are outside fighting, Michael. And that got reshot to be what is now when what works a lot better now to find it. Yeah. It works considerably better suprised that they were able to find that in in the editing room. But Chris you've already said they you'd like to see a sequel to this Jacob would you like to see a sequel to hallway in two thousand eighteen. Yes. But has. Under one of two conditions. One. I would like them to continue the threads here. I think that trying to just notice lash sequel after what they do here would be a disservice, and it would be just a bad choice. So it needs to be as smart as good, which makes me my my second point, which is aimed at being back. David Gordon green in the same team. If if they don't wanna come back. That's fine. Least try or these finds the buddy as interesting I don't want this to be a situation where this handed off somebody to make another slash Mike Myers. They made it into an event and the box office of responded accordingly. This was a massive success because it was treated with dignity and attacked and respect. And if they can bring back all those elements and continue what made this when special. Yeah. Go for it make me because equal after hearing Chris talk about how a sequel would do Laurie strode nasty. I don't think I want one. I think I I've been convinced by Christmas argument that it. I'm okay. With them driving away and having that cathartic moment for that character. And maybe they'll maybe the rebooted or something. But and you know, then I would be down based on who is in it, directing and writing all that stuff. But I I think this version of the story. I mean, it's a pretty great ending point at that. They have right now as much as I would I think enjoy another one. I don't see a reason. I don't see a good reason to to make another one other than, you know, obviously, this movie did a lot of money at the box office. So I'm sure the studio wants another one. But I can't think of a good story reason. Like, I feel like what are you gonna do? Mike Myers is comes back again. Or you have someone who is taking up the mantle and trying to be him. I think it'd be kind of interesting if it would have been kind of interesting if there was like that kind of true crime thing had come out like that was not a part of this movie. And how that affects the Strauss is like the effective like this. These kind of killings kind of become a national scale phenomenon. I was talking the other day about a making a murderer season two. And how the first episode kind of deals with the consequences of like this phenomenon of making a murderer and how effective the people involved. I think that could have been interesting, but I think they already kind of blew that by having the podcasters in this episode. So I just can't see how they would do it. Chris I'll leave it with you. Do you have any ideas for sequel for hauling? No. Like, I said, I I I'm of two minds of this one is the now don't do it one is. Yes to it. Again. I you know, I have a feeling if they do do a sequel. I don't think Jamie Lee Curtis is gonna wanna come back, and she's basically been sort of semi retired. And I feel like she got her moment with this. And she probably doesn't want to do it again. But she might. But I feel like if they have a sequel it's going to focus on new characters dealing with Michael Myers. And then maybe the stroz can live out the rest of their life thinking, he's dead. They they can live in what's they can live in a Libyan. And not know that Michael Myers is still out there, murdering people with full ignorance. Yes. That's I couldn't think of the term yet. Don't think we need that. But okay that brings us to the end of today's slash from daily. Jacob where can people find more your work on line? I'm on flash dot com every single day.

Episode 123: What if Earth was a gas planet? - Earth Grab Bag

"The food for was what if we had nine lives blooded pits ups or if money through on trees. They've redid nappy back. Then it's absurd absurd medical ler buddy and welcome to absurd hypotheticals. The sure we over think dumb questions so you don't have to. I'm your host mark lehner. And i'm joined here today by chris. Ye and ben storms say. Hey guys hey am chris. Hey i'm ben guys. I am hype for today because we get to go back up to the the space and planet size scale with our earth. grab bag which. I'm pretty sure only materialized because they keep putting earth related questions onto our candidates list. And you guys won't do so many space episodes with me anymore. A lot of those types of questions like it's hard to come up with three enters. Yeah that most he grabbed is but all the same time. I did put lot on there. But i'm happy. We're we're doing this one. I'm sad i couldn't answer all of them myself. But i guess you guys must have a turn as well actually. I think all three of these questions are your questions on the candidates list. Oh yeah absolutely. I think it's safe to say always the most excited about the space questions. But i will. I will have to restrain myself because Chris you're going i what is what is my space question that you answered. My question isn't really a space question. It's an earth question. But it's what if earth's elevations doubled. So when i was doing this. I kind of ignored anything below sea level so all the oceans all the same but then everything above sea level like all the mountains twice the height All the cities her twice salvation. That the read stuff like that so That's kind of how i handled this question. Okay so you didn't. You didn't double the negative numbers. Nine double the negative numbers. Because i don't think you really do. We consider those elevations i guess. Yeah we do. I'd say is the nation of the sea floor. Is you know negative law. They say like a of instead of elevation of. But i guess tau still technical innovation but yeah. I ignored the ocean. Yeah probably not too much interesting going on if you take the deepest very deep it and make it double deep. This is still feel like we did that at some point to do that. I don't remember when we would have done that could have i don't think i don't think Specifically did that quaver anyway. So the first thing that i wanted to do was to see what the highest elevation on earth was. Because i wanted to see if we'd have like a real life space mountain sorta thing that ideas cool to me. So i found like the boundary of what we consider space in the air. There isn't really like an official boundary for outerspace. I think actually covered this before every episode but there are different definitions one but the one that i used. Was that the us classifies. Anyone that travels fifty miles up is an astronaut. So i use that as space. Challenge accepted now. Mount everest is twenty nine thousand feet in elevation. We double that fifty eight thousand feet which is eleven miles which is not anywhere close to space. It's in the stratosphere is not space so it's not i mean i was hoping i face mountain is not gonna happen though. Unfortunately that'd be so cool. I would definitely change up the mount washington bumper stickers where it's like not this car cloud might watching. This car is a spaceship and almond astronaut. So it's just like a little side tangent beginning but so next to look at like where we would be able to live and if there are cities that are like high elevation there doubled. Will they be in places that we can't live anymore. Because there's not enough oxygen so i wanted to find like the limit the highest place so we can live and the highest permanent settlement in the world. Right now is in peru its City called lavin con lowering. Canada pry pronounced canada to the crew. And this the city is sixteen thousand seven hundred feet in elevation. So i'm gonna use that as like our limit for where we can live. As a permanent settlement now i found a histogram shows like the percentages of elevations on earth and it said that twenty eight percent of the land area is above three thousand two hundred and eighty feet and then ten percent is above six thousand five hundred and sixty feet now. They're like a whole ton of cities in colorado. That fit that ten percent category. I think the average they got was like six thousand eight hundred and if we double those cities that the elvis has cities. They're really like they come. Pretty close to the limit of what we can live in so a lot of those this cap colorado cities. We won't be live in anymore but that's just the us so look yet like worldwide. So i found a list of cities by elevation in this the this list only included cities that had a hundred thousand people are more but on this list. I found sixty. Six cities were in this ten percent category of of elevation which means that if delvin doubled all sixty sixty cities would not be able to live in anymore and the total population in these sixty. Six cities added up to forty six million people please. Yes six percent of the pop. The world population get down from there a population doing up there now. They like to live with less oxygen. I guess so. If the elevations stubble pretty much. I guess the six percent of the population have to be go somewhere else and live somewhere else. Such kinda like the result of just where we'd be able to live and where he wouldn't be able to live. But another effect that i guess another byproduct of double vacations is that the land leading up to those elevations is also affected so like the slopes leading up to tops are skipper now so basically like every slope is gonna be is going to be twice as steep so i went to look at like. What is the steepest street in the world. So the guinness world record has the steepest. Fina world is ball's in st baldwin street and doomed in new zealand and it is thirty five percent grade which translates to to nineteen degrees. So that that's like officially the steepest three in the world but there is an unofficial survey of bradford street in san francisco. There's a thirty foot section that's the unofficial survey found that was forty percent grade which is steeper. So that's unofficial. But it's in san francisco. And that got me kind of looking into san francisco because san francisco known for as being like a very hilly city has a lot of steep streets up and down so ignoring the the unofficial serve allendc like what officially is is steep in san francisco. Steepest free in san francisco. It's tie between two two different streets so filbert street between leavenworth and hide and then twenty second street between church vicksburg. They both have a slope thirty. One point five percent which is around seventeen point five degrees so if elevation double than that means that both of these streets would be sixty three percent slope and like all the other shoe to be double slope to so sixty three percents. So is a pretty big slow said. The lower limit of a black diamond ski slope is forty percent twenty three percent above that. Oh that's opposite perspective. Yeah but san francisco actually has like a train system in place to like climb. The ski slopes not necessarily the double soap but to climb the normal thirty one point five percent soap so they have cable car system and the cable cars are pretty efficient climbing slopes and the way that they work is that there's a cable beneath the street that's always it's continuously moving in that cable is powered by an electric motor. That's located at a central powerhouse. And then the cars when they when the cable car wants to move a grips that cable and then when it when it doesn't want to move it let's go the cable and that's the system works and this particular cable system is good for soci because it doesn't rely on like the friction between the road and the rail or the car in the rail and stuff his depending on the cable so i couldn't find like an upper limit for how how big of a slope this this cable car system could handle it can handle obviously in san francisco there slopes right now but can't handle the double slope so i found another cable driven car system. It's called a fun nick. Funicular funicular. Yeah i've never heard of funicular before Sounds like ben has they. They use them an their mark and like like obviously in like mountainous areas but issues like a. It's effectively a train. Like a similar similar uses a ski lift but not lifted yet. Right yeah right. Yeah so as been said it's it's it's used in like mountainous areas and there's a reason i mean so the way it works is that There two cards. That are attached the same cable and there's a pulley in the middle in those two cars counterbalance each other so as one goes up the other goes down and then vice versa. So yeah the. The system is particularly good at very steep slopes and the steepest finagler that i found was the lynton and lynn mouth cliff railway. It's located in north devon in south west england and it climbed the slope of fifty eight percent. Which is very close to our sixty three percent that we need for our double soaps in san francisco. It's only five percent off and thirty five percent. If translated degree is only three degrees. And so i feel like he can handle the extra five percent so we have cable car system. Second handle double slopes in san francisco. But what about cars. Because maybe we don't want to rely on cable cars all the time so for cars. I looked at lombard street in san francisco. It's known i guess. People caught the most crooked city in the world. That's kind of what is known for like that wind e street. You probably you might have heard of it. He probably seen it before. It's it's the one that just zigzags up these seat on all the movies and show whenever they san francisco they usually show lombard street so originally numbered street was a twenty-seven percent slope but they kind of realize that it's kinda to ski for cars or is it just deeper than they wanted so in. Nineteen twenty two. Karl henry use of the property owner at the time. He proposed a design for a street. The head eight. Hairpin turns so a hairpin turn is basically just like the street goes one way and then it turns almost hundred eighty degrees almost honor and eighty degrees and just goes the other way. That's been turned. It makes a shape closer. Hairpin which is why. It's called that and using these eight hairpin turns they're able to reduce to slow from twenty seven percent to sixteen percent so it's an effective way to reduce the slope. Actually use this on a larger scale in like mountainous area has these on like hiking trails and stuff. So it's a. It's a good way to reduce the slope. So i figure if the elevations doubled everywhere and senator francisco twice as steep like everywhere are probably gonna have these hairpin turns everywhere and it's gonna take a very long time to get everywhere because everything is going to be. All the streets are going to be lager not necessarily ideal because it takes forever to get anywhere we get really good drifting he we could have a san francisco drift situation. But i thought it was not ideal. I came up with a genius plan. It's better than hairpin. Turns totally not ridiculous. Giant escalators for cars. Bend would you do so. I answer the question of what. If the earth's core disappeared. So i guess just sort of to to start. What is you know at you know. What is the earth core. What what is it. What does it do for us to the core is it's basically a harshly. Solid partially liquid Super dense effectively chunk of an iron nickel blend the center of the earth. It's kind of the way it form is actually the question i had is. I start looking into this trying to figure out if we'd have like a new core form probably not because the way the core formed is basically as the planet was was forming on those dense. Heavier metals have sunk into the bottom and concentrated there. So got this big old paul of iron nickel this sort of orb of still kind of liquid iron nickel around it and all his nickel makes up a pretty good chunk of the earth. It's actually about a third of the earth mass and almost actually half of the earth's radius so basic stuff when it's disappears because there's about a third of yours mass gravity is going to change specifically is going to reduce by about that sam. I couldn't their sally not a planet that has that level of gravity. Sound having fun comparison. But it's probably not going to be enough that you get any real fun impact from that but it would be let gravity and that's kind of cool not gonna matter. We'll get there a little bit the on that. I way this actually goes very badly. Is that the probably the biggest thing that the court does is generate the earth's magnetic field it's caused by the rotation of the core. I'm not gonna go to in depth and do it because we actually had a whole episode about one of the nine hundred field went away. That's episode we're gonna find it. The short version is. It's bad the big important thing that does stop. The atmosphere being stripped away by solar winds. So that's not great once again not really gonna matter but not good if the course appeared. What's really going to happen to. The planet is actually going to depend a lot on how this happens and i. We're going to go sort of an order of how complicated. It's going to be to figure out so start with the easy one first. Let's say that the earth cords appears is replaced by a vacuum. This one's really simple. The earth fills that vacuum explosively. Or i guess impulsively impulsivity and then probably explosive. So i think what winds up happening The earth isn't a perfect sphere. Its wider is tall. So i think what happens. Is you know the mantle rushes and to fill where the core was and kind of as it all crunches end sort of bow out. You know further in the middle at the equator and her split and spread from there which is cool. So that one's easy. That one's really easy. It's just the earth implodes so that one's known straightforward. What if instead of being a vacuum it's replaced by air instead. This is similar because once again we still have this big empty space in the middle of the planet but instead of just explosively filling that void on the mantle is going to spread ended up. You know still pretty quickly because there's just this big old pocket earth but going to spread in more gradually fun fact. This is actually worse than if the planet just implodes. Because what's going to happen. Is that if there's air now in the middle of the earth and the mantos rachi and fill it era to go somewhere And where the air is going to go is out and go out through. All the main means of like volcanic volcanic activity saw arizona. Rush up through you know gaps and the earth's tectonic plates and volcanoes and everything and basically just 'cause like apocalyptic volcanic activity so slower death for us. I actually maybe. Maybe i like. I love how apocalyptic volcanic activity is like the tame. Way to. what's happening right. Yeah exactly yeah we all die again. I guess is the big thing. But yes i i actually. It's funny you say slower. I don't actually know if it'll be slower for us. I imagine an employer give like earth. Employees would be pretty fast for us last So yes and no so. So the core is is like thirty Is like thirty seven hundred kilometers thick actually as a little over half the rate of the earth. So it's not gonna be immediate. I still think that be so. I think that it actually might be a little bit faster. Death with volcano activity because the air will start escaping immediately as the mantle start spraying in as opposed to having some delay on the implosion like not a huge amount because giant vacuum. But it's gonna be facts. Either way i guess is what i'm saying. It's not that much slower either way. So that one's also pretty straightforward So i was trying to figure out because there are there are other other things. I would like to talk about here a way to make this work in a way that we could get some different ways we die. So let's say that instead of having a meet immediately disappear. It is appears gradually kind of just like there's you know a vacuum forming in the middle it kind of keeps gained filled in as the planet contracts to wear everything that was core is now i guess mantle what happens then so once again. We're actually left with two possibilities. I gotta start with the less fun one. I find his relative here. So let's say that the plant actually does survive this whole process and we sort of crunched down bit by bit and replace if actually replace our core with mantle. The planet isn't that much smaller the core because of the way that s fear work since the middle. It actually isn't a huge amount of the volume of the plan. Something about fifteen percent of volume and that means the radius of the planet only decreases. Back three hundred seventy kilometers of its current like six thousand three hundred seventy kilometers. So it's actually not that much smaller. There are a couple of problems one. There's that whole you know previously mentioned hatfield. You may be more immediately. Not sure exactly. And i don't have good numbers on this. Because i couldn't figure out a way to calculate it. None of our water is going away so if somehow we survived the core going away and the planet contract in which admittedly pretty big ifs. We are going to deal with some pretty dramatically rising sea levels. Oh yeah and we're really just kind of on a rounding error on having landed all anyway so right exactly yeah so. I think there's a couple of things that can happen here. It's either either. Just obviously we all you know get crumbled various bits as the planet contracts or we all get flooded especially a water planet because it's enough smaller even though it's not actually that much smaller that the water tour of overtaking everything with people in the ten percent of high elevation do they drown so unsurprisingly. There's not good like data. On how much would rise if the core went away or just the planet shrink overall by a certain amount potentially six percent that die in my situation could surviving your situation. It's possible is possible. That a tiny amount live. There is one other problem and this actually could take place and In the more explosive possibilities as well so obviously there's a lot less gravity on the planet. There's another impact of that. Aside from risk you know jumps fun. Which is that the plan to spain very quickly and the planet's not necessarily as solid as you might think about it being and if the rotation of the planet doesn't slow down what likely is going to happen as the course appears is as the gravity reduces. Bits of the earth is going to kind of slough off into space. Oh good that's fun. So once again i couldn't get a good like you know good model how this is going to happen because pretty far into a hypothetical here. It's entirely possible than one of those ones for the quarter disappears. That's actually what gives us not the the decompression we just kind of get flung off all directions which is maybe more fun. I don't know. But i do think that a certain point and the gradual loss one. That's also going to start happening. So i would imagine the first to go would be those ones ovation's actually so probably unlikely they make it Even if they don't get get drowned by the rising seas but they get the most fun way to die. In my opinion it is pretty cool. I'd imagine yeah so. I will say researching. This was a lot of fun. Because it's rare that i i find so many exciting ways for us to die in one question like usually it's one good one here. I got like five or six. So that's fun. I really tried to figure out a way to to get to a point where we had a working planet with no core. I don't think it's possible. The only thing i couldn't figure out i don't know this is one of those things where i think just lack of knowledge about how plants work is tricky. Not like on my my particular case just as a you know scientific research study. I don't know if you could have a planet that didn't have some sort of solid bit in the the mantle is is relatively liquid. I don't know if you could have a planet spinning. That's relatively liquid like down to the core and had it maintain any kind of structural integrity. You know you could have been. You can have a donut shaped planet. I love the idea. I love the idea. The planet just turns into like a baker spending dough on his hand just like the top and the bottom like collapse into the middle and it all goes to the edges and you just have a big old donut plant. And we've done that that one we've done but we did that one. This is not how we got there. No so i guess. Long story short. Unsurprisingly we die. Surprisingly we can die in any number of ways. I don't know what my favorite is safe killed us with magnetic field disappearing which is a previous episode the planet becoming a donut which is a previous episode. Yep being submerged in water in having to live underwater which is a previous episode also true we were launched off into space. We've lost gravity. We've done this okay. So that technically is relatively the same so a previous episode any other ones. I guess technically we did floor is lava. And that's a pretty you know. That's that's an outcome. So i gave you five prior episodes one here. This is a very high value high value question yet. Listen this just listening. Ben's one answer you never have to listen to any other podcast episodes. Well no please keep podcast. But but you could i guess anyway. Yeah only if the court we would die just you know. pick your poison. I guess Would you do so the question. I did was actually the endpoint of a couple answers. I've had in the past About planet formation and my question is what if earth was a gas planet. So i'm going to start saying that. Basically all the information. I i'm using here is based off of jupiter i understand jupiter is much bigger than earth also has lots of has slightly different composition. Like it's got a lot of ammonia. But i was trying my first instinct was to try to see if i can make what earth is made out of generally and make it into gases. The problem has been like you mentioned. It's a lot of iron and nickel. Which just isn't in gas form vote. I can't if i take what earth made out of and make it into a planet. It's just a rocky planet. Not a gas planet so basically what most gas plants are made out of is Pretty much just hydrogen and some helium and then basically trace additional stuff based on your specific flavor a planet but what i use a cheaper because we have the most data on what it's like inside jupiter mostly because we flew that galileo probe into it and just click the data until it stopped pills very ruin our part honestly if you think about it is especially because he had a bunch of other missions went to check out like a bunch of moons and like all this multi part mission and the end of the mission was okay and now we're going to dive you into jupiter and he's going to send data until you die but anyway going onto what on earth gas planet the first and most obvious problem with trying to live on a gas planet is that there's no actual surface to live on so if you tried to go onto it you just kind of keep falling through the atmosphere until you know physics eventually stops you You won't get to reach the center of your planet because as you go deeper and deeper into a gas planet the pressure continues to increase. Because the you know the atmospheric pressure is basically the weight of all stuff on top of you pushing down. So squished us. Which which swishes. And it gets denser and denser and denser as you go into the planet and when you're talking about planet scale type stuff eventually. The pressure is going to compress gases. Enough that they'll be just as dense you are and then you end up kinda just floating somewhere at some level so the question is kind of like where is that and it looked like when we stop so as much we did use duper. I did. Use your reference point because that's where we sent galileo leo So let's take a look at what happened to our good buddy robot. Basically so from the top of jupiter's atmosphere it descended about one thousand one hundred fifty kilometers into the planet before data stopped being sent is how they phrased it so let. Let's start by looking at the The pressures because the pressure is going to kind of inform the density of the gas of the higher. The pressure is the gases. Nicole sir will beat to buoyant so the pressure range from effectively zero at the top the atmosphere. Because that's the space barrier. It hit a one bar which is the equivalent of the atmospheric pressure on the surface of the earth. Slow one bar and about a thousand kilometers abbots eleven fifty down and then that lasts hundred. Fifty kilometers ended up being at twenty two bars Or twenty two times the surface pressure when the data stopped so the bad news for complete. Is that this is nowhere close to where we stop falling as a point of reference for density again. We're trying to get the density to be the same between the gas us so that we float as a reference. Hydrogen gas is compressed in scuba tanks. That can be stored more effectively. You can get more gas in their oxygen hydrogen but anyway just to get a restaurant. How much impressed so the pressure in a tank is about seven hundred bars and that brings the density of the gas from point zero nine kilograms from meter cube to forty two kilograms from your cube. So like you know five hundred. Close two thousand times as dense. The problem is the arch human has a density of slightly less than water which is puts us at nine hundred eighty five kilograms from your queue compared to our compressed gas forty two so what. We're not even close to the density that we need under the pressure and compounding. That is that like we're nowhere cl. The seven hundred dollars of pressure density is nowhere. Close to what we need. And we're nowhere close to that seven hundred bars of pressure any way for the pro style reporting kind compounding on that bad news. Is that as you go deeper. And deeper into jupiter it gets hotter and hotter and even where the probe stopped transmitting. It's already being about three hundred degrees fahrenheit. Which is not the craziest number physics wise. Like that's a a manageable temperature. But if you're wondering oh maybe we could just keep going deep and you know in a little in a ship. That insulates temperature and pressure. It's not really going to work out for us. Because like i said three hundred degrees is manageable but is estimated that the core of jupiter can reach forty two thousand degrees fahrenheit. So i guess this answers. My question is not going to be like a hot tub No it's not going to be like a hot of damage. Yeah forty thousand. Degrees is just well and way above beyond the melting point of any substance. Like you know you can put free mega tungsten ship as just going to melt house. Yeah i was gonna say. Three hundred degrees is not space. Scale hot but that the core of it is face scale hot yes so i don't have data for when the Where it shifts to like just absolutely unbearable temperatures will be. It couldn't take temperature readings deep because our our galileo exploded. But you can tell it sits going down because the some cool stuff that starts happening to hydrogen gas for example out about another thousand thousand kilometers down from where we are. The pressure is high enough to turn the hydrogen gas into liquid hydrogen. So just by squeezing hydra together has turned it into a liquid and then if you go. Another section down in jupiter from that it goes from liquid hydrogen into liquid metallic hydrogen. Where not only are they so close together. The act like a liquid. They're so close together that the individual electrons on the hydrogen atoms dissociate with their own nuclei and it becomes a sea of hydrogen nuclei like the sea of electrons around a bunch of nuclei which doesn't cool stuff and the reason cult metallic hydrogen picks up. It now acts like metal picked up some properties so like this liquid. Metallic hydrogen is magnetic conductive and interest. Enough very reflective. It's like if you had a pool that you'll be like mirror-like on how much light reflected whatever everything amir that's a previous upset all right chris. You're out you're on episode watching her So yeah it. You can't try and go deep down. The the heat is going to basically ruin any plans you have of trying to make it workable but the good news is that there are actually a couple of areas where you could try and live temperature-wise so interesting. The the atmosphere of jupiter like right at that space barrier gets incredibly hot. It's up to like eight hundred thousand degrees celsius up there and this basically because of the this is the energy from the sun hitting the plant and getting trapped in those in those gases so we we actually have on earth to some pretty hot spots at the top of our What do they call it. The the ozone layer. That's the one so kind of like we're the sun's radiation isn't quite deflected yet. It'll it'll heat up and then it kinda dips down. Jupiter is a bit different than earth as far as the the heating because the majority of would you earthquake. Energy budget isn't actually from the sun. So earth if you look global warming and stuff the temperature where we are is more influenced by the sun than the core of the earth. Being hot molten madman radi outwards. It's almost entirely from. The sun's energy jupiter's have been different so basically once you get to the know the one atmosphere zone kind of the set the for the sun released kind of irrelevant and that's partially because jupiter has a bit of a thicker atmosphere but also due process that much further away from the sun so it's getting less energy per square foot emanating from the sun but jupiter is much hotter on the inside and much better about getting that he'd outwards that said. There is a gap between the hot outside and the hot middle the higher side of our good temperature range calling. It is about seven hundred kilometers down. Where the pressure is roughly ten to the modified atmosphere. So this this this one of the sections at galle was able to reach low. Pressures are generally okay for equipment and vehicles and what we'd be using to otherwise survive in this gas planet. Because you're really only ever a max of one bar of pressure difference between the inside. Be and the outside. You know it can't get any more extreme than just being in space. You can't go less pressure. The only bad news is that we're basically at zero atmospheres. The humans can't survive in pressure. That is less than point. Three five atmospheres because that's the point. Where blood starts to boil which is not good for you i. I've heard i've heard never experienced. So that's that's the high side of that temperatures in the low side where you start getting hot again is actually right at the range between one and five atmospheres which is great because what atmosphere is what we live at. Currently our bodies are much better at handling high pressures that low pressure so there have been people who spent hours in precious highest seventy atmospheres. One to five is no big deal for us seven. How how long they live in the seventy atmospheres. I the it was like. They were working in a specific if it was a dive. Or if it was like in a pressurized container There like two hours. Seventy s a lot. Seventy though it is. It is the record for abbas atmospheres. But you know i. I didn't get any and look the diving numbers. But i think divers are irregularly like in the double digits of of pressure because water lot heavier than air so the the pressure picks up quite quickly. You go underwater. So there's a couple so busy if you can stay and maintain your altitude in this range. You can actually live in at least from a pressure and temperature standpoint have a liveable area. Staying afloat is tricky because like my first idea like have a big balloon It'll be fine is that the the is hydrogen air so that hydrogen gas so the the air surrounding you is already the lightest possible gas. You can't go less dense than hydrogen gas. If you're just like filling bloom something you can make yourself more buoyant. The only way you actually can a little bit so the we'd have to do is you'd have to heat. You have have a hot air balloon when you heat the Made a big balloon. Heat the hydrogen gas in it so it's a higher temperature on the outside and then you'd have a bit of a density differential where you could float. There's a decent amount of pressure and seeking still actually also used just plain physics to study at that level too. So you know all the mechanics of flight would work in this At this stage and the planet so again fitted feasible. But there's a couple. There's like two last problems here. That will probably just kill us eventually. One of them is wind speeds. Basically because it's all all this hot gas and and this limitation hydrogen spinning around and all these crazy things going on with these gas planets a lot more mobile unless say mobile than than rocky planets junior spins more than twice the speed of earth and Part of what that spin creates is win like high winds so you see all the the storms and the big red spot on jupiter and all that so they they've logged wind speeds regularly of three hundred eighty four miles an hour around jupiter storms. So that's not uncommon and that wind speed is even higher than the scale of an f five tornado. So if you were trying to you know fire plane you know if you had a jupiter space plane you might have some problems with the weather and then the second one which i think is going to be a bigger problem is convection. So i mentioned how the upper atmosphere of jupiter's hot because of the a- because the sun's rays sun's energy and all that they're actually when they did a study on it. They found areas on jupiter's upper atmosphere that even like hundreds of degrees hotter than that harder than they would have expected and basically was happening is the hot lower parts of jupiter. It's all gas. If they can move in between each other so there will be air currents and drafts of this hot air coming up from deep in jupiter and going up into the atmosphere so even like specifically above like the the big red spot they were hitting temperatures of over a thousand degrees celsius all above the red spot like basically from the red spot upwards. Just it's boiling because that's like a heat escape for the gas planet so i don't know how variable they are accept the fact that they are quite variable so you could basically create a ship you could have it be at that level and things would be generally okay until either got windy or suddenly all the temperature round just went up by hundreds of degrees and fried you alive and yes so. If earth was gassed planet it would be generally bad less writing than beds less variety than benz but more facts about jupiter undisputable with that we we have talked about the earth and unearth like planets enough. We'll move onto our. would you rather question. Okay chris. are you ready. i'm ready would you rather have an indestructible car or So your car probably gets into situations where it would need the in in distractibility more often. But it's more devastating. If your home is destroyed also offer car. Well would you also don't have a house so would you rather have an indestructible home or indestructible car. I have a. I guess i don't i mean i live somewhere so i have a home. I don't own it but see. I think you're thinking about this. The wrong way chris because you're looking at an purely reactive manner you can't use indestructible home or anything. You can certainly use carver things true. If you're only thinking about it in terms of like what do. I least wanna have destroyed. The answer is clearly your home however you can. I mean. I like his car particularly like i mean what would you do with it though. I mean asked what. I was trying to figure out but you could do things with it. And that's what really matters. You can ask like what would you wanna hit. I mean you could open like a demolition company. Where you just break buildings by driving your car. And you repeatedly that'll be controlled part of the problem. Is that cars aren't gonna heading things. Actually here's a question does have if your car is indestructible does that mean you're you're not indestructible inside the cow. No you're not. That's actually a very very compelling argument. Said it's still be pretty dangerous if you're inside it but you just have an old car from the seventies before he does safety. Regulations were thing rate. But i mean you could hook up some sort of remote control situation true. Okay yeah i mean you can do stuff with it. You probably do something with an instructional home as well as like a space for like i dunno bomb testing like it's not necessarily direction i was going to go but i mean what's the point of having a bomb test on indestructible home. You don't what are you trying to test it's contained seat explodes like you could close your front door you close your doors and just drop a new consigned and then it would be fine. I mean that doesn't tell you any information though. Like usually a bomb test is like what kind of destruction does it cause but you can still put like you know measuring equipment inside and see you know. Get the data. The data of what of how bobbing your bomb explodes. You can get like pressure data. I'm sure i mean it's gonna be warped data because it's in an indestructible home which doesn't exist in any other situation. I think if you drop it he dropped nuke at an indestructible home was contained basically. Just make sun energy. Unless unless there's unless one of the windows cracked which case you've made like a space ship indestructible hunters. I mean they can't do renovations. Probably i mean can add to do the best version of it like where your house won't take any like you could run up at your house. The won't take any damage you don't want it to. I'll tell your stuff inside is not safe but anything that's like permanently installed like your kitchen kitchen appliances. I think are generally okay but not like your couch right. I think the key to all act to the fact that you're not indestructible in your car. And if that means to get like a car accident. It's not the fact that your car breaks. It's gonna kill you right. It's gonna be the fact you stop suddenly so the car is actually pretty not helpful. The more i think about it the indestructible car could be used as submarine. I don't think they're watertight. Cars and watertight right. I don't think cars are not submarine watertight. Yeah it's got like an air intake which isn't immediate priority. I feel like i feel like a pretty important component of a submarine the ability to come back up. Which i think your car can do. I mean you could attach an engine you detach like a jet engine to it. I don't know not like air jet but like a water jet submarines go. You just get a submarine. I would use a car do this you ever indestructible submariner indestructible car. Go submarine done okay. Car or house. how about that one. I mean i'm leaning toward tests just because it seems more practical. Yeah i'm finding. I'm fine difficulties finding the usefulness of the instructional car. Actually the more i think about it so she got her big selling point on. Marcus goes back to my first point. Where yet doesn't save your life if you're in a life threatening accident but if you're in a smaller extent it saves money plus even we'll also like even if you were in a you know you did save you like if you took the great version of the cars destructible and so are you inside it. You're still not gonna be able to drive recklessly. you can still kill the other peers. Who uses like a wrecking ball for demolition. Or some other. I don't know that was just. The first came to mind and probably the only one is really feasible. But you know what is actually. I'm just thinking movies would be a good spot for if you had a stunt car for movies that you'd have to worry about crashing and exploding but honestly a stunt house. A stunt house for movies might be more practical than that explain. I don't agree with that. i think i i'm. I'm leaning towards christmas answering this one. Yeah like if you need us shoot a bunch of see how many building tammy sets and shit to explode to get your explosion scene law at going here but then your explosion team. The house doesn't get destroyed those your fireball spine now after. Cgi graphic. We'll we'll put but wait and just don't have a house it all just how that one all right. Let's let's try and call us what we're not making much headway. So in terms of the movie thing. The car is useful. But in terms of practicality. I think the home is more useful overall. I'm going to stay home. It's better. I think home is better to. I'm also a little biased. Because we just had a my folks and we had a water pipe break in the basement. I'm like damn. I don't wanna have to deal with that shit. Save you a lot of mike. Small expenses earn at small expenses Expenses like that. Yeah it saves you a bunch of medium large expenses that you just have to suck up and spend money on the car like e e crashed the car and you get a new like your spend less on cars than you will on house repairs. I think in the long term. I mean you. You still have maintenance for cars too. But it's generally less money trail car maintenance than house maintenance. Yeah so i'm going to house. I think all of us are yup house. Our house destructible. Or no he. It's worth more money all right. Well that'll do. That'll do that. We all we all want indestructible home.

Episode 111: What if the floor was ACTUALLY lava? - Throwback 1

"The Food for was, what if we had nine lives blooded pits UPS or if money through on trees if did nappy. Back then. Some certain. Medical. Hello everybody and welcome to absurd hypotheticals. The show we overthink dumb questions. So you don't have to I'm your host markets later and I'm joined here today by Chris Ye and Ben Storms say hi guys. Hey, I'm Chris Hey I'm Ben guys we gotta we gotTA. Spicy one today I'm pretty excited for this. What we're doing today is our first hopefully. Throwback episode. I as I hope there's more not that I hope is the first one. I hope it is I. Hope is the first one. So basically what we're doing when we first started the show, we were one bad at it and to we would do two topics a week, and we just jammed at all in the same hour. So we decided that we're GONNA go back to all the old questions that we've done on the show and be like which one of these do we wanna take another stab at now that we are older wiser and have a little bit of more experience and time to get into kind of into the thick of it they're very specific. Questions that we have regrets on also were big regrets and let's let's give ourselves from salvation here. Yeah. So each pick two different question that we gonNa Redeem ourselves on and I don't as much else to say I think I'm just GONNA go ahead and start with the first one. So the one I went back and revisited was in episode seventeen and the question of what if you could control the weather. So at the for the first time, we did this one I definitely felt a bit lost where we kind of all just. This Felix should be able to do a lot here and we couldn't hit some good absurd ways to handle it. Like Chris, I know you covered covering like cloud art where you could take all the different clouds and put them in different shapes. Ben You talked about just making it sunny on people's weddings and raining on baseball games you didn't like. was effectively where you're at yes. I did and I kind of went off the on the engineering side and took a deep dive into harnessing energy from lightning. Which I actually liked like I listen back to I kind of liked that answer but I kind of hand waved a pretty big part of it which actually turning all the energy into a lightning strike into. Power because there's like you know you go into the physics of it and there's you know the instantaneous energy lightning bolt is on the scale of like an atomic bomb is all this crazy stuff. You know like it's going to power the world is perfect but really practically, there's no way to capture that effectively I don't know how you get a capacitor battery that would be able to suck up all that lightning. So I thought I'd hop back into the game with a fresh set of eyes to see I could free that problem out but it turns out I. Miss Another potential energy candidate. That's you know from the weather and what ended up going into tornadoes. You didn't cover wind at all in the other one. nope. I specifically started my answer with ongoing nor all the other types of weather and just talk about lightning. Sued really none of us really talk about like wind at all because I was pretty much just rain I talked about clouds talking about clouds mail you did not really had all the. Question now we note so I'm GonNa get go start talking about tornadoes and start with all the tornado facts and there were gonNA, go into high turn them into energy. So, tornadoes declassified on what's called the Fujita scale well, now the enhanced Fujita scale, but I'm GONNA shorten it. and they get get writings for ratings from F zero to five, depending on how intense they are. So about seventy five percents. Tornadoes are F zero to F one, which means have wind speeds between seventy three and one hundred, ten miles per hour, which is actually not that fast. These typically don't do too much damage was like ripping off a couple shingles off the roof and like knocking down some tree branches there still risk for like motor homes and cars like they can still hoped toss a motorhome like on the higher. Side, generally, not too much happens and they kind of fade quickly F. Two's are bit Nastier make about eighteen percent of tornadoes, and this is going up to one thirty five. This is where they can start actually beating beating up actual houses. You know if you're in the middle of it can take off your roof and start throwing around some debris. His was onto f three were things start to get actually dangerous. So these are the ones winds up to one sixty five. This is about six percent of the tornadoes that that occur. And these ones that can destroy even like a well built home and I'm actually a dangerous this this category of Tornado even though it's only six percent tornadoes is responsible for seventy five percent of Tornado deaths. So this is these are the nasty ones but of course, we're only three out of five f four tornadoes have winds up to two hundred miles an hour This is where they hit the point where the damage is almost comical luckily. Only one percent tornadoes are f four and that four transit doing things like debarking trees, which to me sounds even worse than just the other thing they did, which is pick them up and dear route them and flinging around somehow the winding strong enough to rip the bark off is like creepy to me it's it's more impressive right I mean it's it's in terms of like you know a person, you know removal of the skin, which is terrifying. Yeah that feels much worse. Yeah this is this is the one like picking your car up just leaving a big flat path behind it that just looks real weird from the helicopter photos, and of course, lastly, there's five if you've been counting along and adding up old percentages of how often all these tornadoes occur. You already hit one hundred percent which makes sense because f five tornadoes make up only point one percent of all tornadoes. These won't they have wins in excess of two hundred miles an hour. No one really knows how fast they go past it. It's kind of a mystery about exactly how fast the tornadoes go in fact, one of the differences between the Fujita scale and the enhanced Fujita scale that the enhanced Geeta scales like, hey, all those wind speeds you were using a bit crazy from before. We're going to we're going to lower them slightly, but they've had They picked readings over three hundred miles an hour before in these tornadoes and I was GONNA come list couple do but I don't think I can put it better as Kapadia. Put this. I'm just going to quote them an F. R. Tornado pulls well built well, anchored homes off their foundations and into the air before obliterating them flinging the wreckage for miles and sweeping foundation clean large steel reinforced structure such a schools are completely leveled. Tornadoes of this intensity tend to shred and scour low lying grass and education from the ground. Very little recognizable structural debris is left generated by a five damage with most materials reduced to course mix of small granular particles and disperse evenly cross the tornadoes damaged path large multi steel frame vehicles, and farm equipment are often mangled beyond recognition and deposited miles away or reduce entirely too unrecognizable component parts. So let's get busy turning one of these into a power plant. But I think F F five is the category of Tornado that's in the movie twister. Twister I'm sure it's accurate. Updated that 'cause there's no such things in F six tornado. So scientifically accurate usually you would think these was make enough six, but anyway powerplant time the main concept for this one is going to be simply create a large ring that we can use as a turbine to create go power mechanical motion is going to be what makes this one infinitely more practical than my lightning one because actually do it so all that leaves is a see how big ring we WANNA make an turns out tornadoes get big like really scarely big the widest Tornado on record as Renault which touchdown Oklahoma twenty, thirteen, any guesses on how I it was. I really have no scale of tornadoes in general one point, five miles two point, six miles wide I thought I was over shooting but. Like just think that that's not even like a like imagine a funnel like you know that's maybe like two hundred feet across magic a big funnel. Now, two point six miles is like a town. It's just all is that the bottom of the tornado top tornado like how do they measure the the size the touchdown sites like diameter So the you know the destruction path that leaves behind. So says is so big and it's going to be under a lot of stress I decided to keep our turbine structure short with a height of only fifty feet. So think if you're making something two point six mile long you can make fifty feet tall without too many worries and you can screen forth the hell out of it. If you have a acting Wednesday of two hundred miles an hour as giving you a pressure of one, hundred, sixty pounds per square foot acting across the whole system. And add up all this areas, any at total of six, hundred, ninety, million pounds of force acting constantly through our turbine. Do some whole lots of math converted up and out into energy knock off a chunk for an efficiency factor and it gives us an output of two hundred and one point three megawatt hours, which doesn't sound like all that much actually. So this is the point where I started googling to see where I went wrong and I stumbled across. A man as equally brilliant as I am who is proposing actual real live version of this back in two thousand, eight Canadian engineer Louis mccaw D- propose a system that would shoot hot air into a cyclone at the base of the turbine and generator tornado and harness its power. He called it the atmospheric vortex engine, which is such cool name I'm stealing it for mine. So mine is now called the atmospheric vortex engine. Thank you Louis Trade market his fault. Well, he proposed back in two thousand eight and I haven't seen one yet. So think it's a I'm not sure if Louis gets the trademark. Bear. Couple quotes from him. That kind of just like are yes. They're not saying the quiet out loud but they're coming close. When I looked further into it I didn't run into anything that was impossible which is. Incredible, scientists quote. In regards to you know sit. The safety part of it if it comes if it came off the base, there would be nothing to sustain the vortex because the hot air wouldn't be there where he kinda just acknowledged that. Yeah. Maybe there is a chance that my tornado would come off the base that created for it. And then my absolute favorite part of it, which is You know him explaining why that we don't see much of all these is utility companies or risk adverse he said, they prefer to buy from stabbed vendors. The most polite way of saying nobody wants to build my crazy tornado machine i. i. like I like the idea that that you know in his mind the reason known as trying this is just that like, oh, well, it's already actions. Yes. is again no one wants to go and my bold risk, my bold risky venture. My bootstrap entrepreneurial spirit here but that's besides the point. Because his tower, which was six hundred meters and one hundred meters. Tall has almost exactly the same effective service areas. My system does and he came up with a power output of to Mexico hours. which was to one point three. So this either validates me. Improved energy companies should only buy from established vendors serve. Anyway two hundred megawatt hours is enough to actually power small city. So we're we're not doing poorly with our system here and I can actually one up Louis because island counted wondering going around originally given that a two point six miles to play with I can do basements is I want. So I went with eight rings space about two hundred, fifty feet apart Kinda concentrically, and so I up to my system to fifteen hundred megawatt hours. Suck at Louis minds better. You do have the advantage of being able to control the weather so Yeah so I think I should be winning. Yeah. But I am winning just putting that on the render still cats. Still counts. Does this change the world though not really new. York City uses eleven thousand megawatt hours of power So even with our fifteen hundred were just like making a modest dent there and we're not even the best power plant. If you look at nuclear power, the largest nuclear power plant in the US generates just shy of four thousand megawatt hours, which is like triple ours which. To. Me Is just Kinda like scary a little bit. Now when I think about that way where you have the society, you know just like the reactors Kinda big but like not at big and if it's three times, the power of a giant fucking two-mile tornado that levels everything in its path, and it's like in that contain that little spot. That's pretty creepy. So basically I've established that you could do a power plant it would be fine and good and I've given myself a new fear of tornadoes and nuclear power in the process. That's kid. Healthy. Honestly. Yeah. You can always use some more fears. Yeah. He's fears keep you alive. They keep you away from scary things not that I have too much trouble voting tornadoes, nuclear power plants today. What did you do? So the question that I want to reenter was what if the floor was lava? This from episode three is actually the fifth questions we've. We've ever entered on the show back in the early days, and the main is now under revisit this is because the first time we tackled it, we basically didn't really say that the floor is actually love. We kind of just we entered more like what if everyone is playing the floor is lava so like we can touch the floor, I mean you you did die if you touch the floor and our rules I believe yeah, you do die and I think we did say that it was hot but we really specify how hot it was just kind of hand wavy. It's hot. Yeah. We we we kept talking about like what if it was actually lava and what would that be like it you know and we're like. Maybe. Just killed it probably just kills everybody and the spirit of the thing is like the children's game floors Laba. So we didn't actually talk about what if the floor it was actually lava. Think was a missed opportunity. Yeah. I think mark is even said like one of your friends listened to the episode like, Oh, I was expecting you to actually talk about lava. But we didn't I mean reasonable assumption. Yeah. So I want to do that. Look at what if the floor actually was lava so it is lava lava is basically just molten rock is really really hot rock that's liquidity because it's so hot and lava is anywhere from thirteen hundred degrees to two thousand, twenty, two, hundred degrees Fahrenheit, which is obviously hot. Yes. That's big number. Yeah. Now, there are these things called lava fields, which obviously like they're nearly flat lava flows. So that's basically be what like all the floor everywhere would be is just really flat lava flows and I actually I watched. An episode of Bill Nye, the science guy for research on this 'cause there's under said I'm Canas and stuff actually pretty fun to watch. And in this episode, he's actually walking on a lava field because what happens is that there's an insulating skin that forms on top of layer of lava and insulates the heat. So you can actually stand on it, and then underneath that insulating skin is the actual flowing lava. So in the episode, he standing on the skin and he actually breaks the skin with a hammer he pulls at it. Exposes actually flowing lava. Lake releases all the heat from that late that whole that he created and that was the last episode of Bill, Nye. Followed him the end. The. Earth's Lytton Swain Dumping Bill Nye the fires below right? So yeah, in reality lava, it cools when it reaches the surface and it could actually close pretty fast in hardens, and that's actually how like new land and new geological features form and the term lava actually does technically still include the solidified rock that forms after it cools off. So in a way, the floor is lava. Like. Look at the rocks and stuff it is but that's not really in the spirit of the question we still do want can be in the spirit of the question. So I'm going to say that the lava never cools never solidifies it always stays on its molten form. And that means that there's no insulating layer that forms. So it's basically like what you imagine when you say the the floor is Avi imagine bubbly orange lava everywhere. Now, the first thing I want to do because. If you're close to you die I wanted to see what actually happens. If you fall into the lava, like how would you die? We all know you die but how? quickly. Immediately. Maybe immediately. So Oh no. Actually sink into the lava like people doing the movies because lava is actually three times more dense than water. So you'd actually float on top of the lava in your skin boil off and what that would cause tap and is something called the light and frost effect. Now, the Leiden frost effect is imagine like a drop of water on hot skillet Kinda, like skittered around the surface of the skillet. Oh No. Now the reason that happened is because the water is heated so fast that it creates an insulating layer of vapor around it, and this insulating layer prevents the drop from just immediately boiling and actually causes the drop water to hover above the surface instead of making direct contact with the skillet and then skaters round on the on the surface. So this would happen to your body. Yeah I was I was already mentally replaced into our my body. Thank you. Your skin we would boil off in a create Baker's insulating surface or insulating layer needs to get around the the lava and it'd be fun to watch from a distance would. Be More than just watching them sink I think maybe now. I guess there'd be more to see I don't know if I WANNA see like jumping around skin bits. You probably don't even really have to worry about that because. The next thing I looked at was if you could even get close enough to the lava to fall in the first place. So lava contains lot of dissolved gas in it and when it nears the surface, a releases, all this gas. So it's mostly. Mostly, water vapor but also has carbon dioxide, sulfur, dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, and. Hydrogen Halide. So all these gases are going to be like super hot in the air if you're like anywhere close to the lava at all and you breathe in. Your lungs will just vaporize. Good that hot. So you're not going to be able to get class and your your skin will boil off. That will have me as well out of bad skin images this. Yeah. You were talking earlier about the skin being ripped off by wind and not that not being a good image, but volcanic debarking is going to be my new death metal band name. Some really good name actually has a pretty good name and because your skin and your blood is all boiling there's actually creates pressure in your body that builds up in your head in your head would explode. They actually. I mean we all knew we were going to die is just I didn't know there's so many different ways. This is one of the few situations where I think your headaches floating is actually at least if you're awful. You can rarely say, yeah, there's actually evidence of exploded heads from the site of the eruption of facilities. So they do have like tangible evidence of this happening. So that's fine who'll. Is it or do they just find? Just. Couldn't find the skull and they'd just like lost the skull while they're doing some party tricks and they're like Oh man we lost his call let's just put some bone bits around pretend his head exploded and the science it away. Yeah. So all this means that you can't really get close to the lava at all. So where is a safe place rested? Go the first place I was thinking like the ocean the ocean would be a safe place because the ocean isn't the. Floor the ocean has a floor. So the ocean floor like way at the bottom of the ocean would be lava, but the ocean would not be lover and I don't think the ocean would actually form in reality if all lava was was of all the floor is lava because all the water I think would just stay in its vapor form but let's just assume that this happens overnight. So everything's normal than overnight. The floor turns into lava would happen to Yo Shen. So I couldn't find any real hard evidence of what would happen but in my mind fair to things that could happen. The first saying the first possibility is that all the water in contact with the ocean floor that is now lava vaporizes, and all that vapor goes to the surface cut goes into the atmosphere in the ocean level drops, and then it just keeps on happening until all the ocean is vapor and then the ocean escon that situation is not good for us because we the ocean is are safe place but the second possibility that I see. Again I don't know how reasonable this is but I'm gonNA. Say I feel like it is kind of possible. Is that because the ocean floor is completely uniformly lava and like the contact of the water against Lavas all happening uniformly. Though be a layer of water vapor that will form an ob like an insulation layer between the water and the lava to keep the the ocean intact. I. Don't know if that would actually happen but maybe it's DEF-. It's definitely one of those things where because we're keeping it in its lava form, it has infinite energy, which is a problem for for physics. Yeah. It's a yeah. We're creating infinite amount amount of heat energy. So doesn't really work in physics, but we're kind of ignoring that. But let's just say for for the sake of this hypothetical that that insulating layer of water vapor does form and protect the oceans we sell the oceans. That means that we would probably live in the oceans because that's by far the safest place we don't want to go anywhere close to land. And, the thing is we wouldn't have any more trees because obviously trees would burn up the combustion temperature of would is seven hundred degrees and we're way above that. So the thing about trees is that they they make oxygen for us that we can breathe and we need oxygen by in the ocean we have algae and algae actually pretty good at producing oxygen as well. So microalgae is actually responsible for the production of more than seventy five percent of the Austin that require and it's algae is. Up to four hundred times more efficient than trees at absorbing carbon dioxide and creating oxygen because it grows faster and it covers more surface area than trees do now that's a bill nye fact I've ever heard one. I don't actually think I learned that from Bill Nye those from different source but. we can't trust it. So, this means that we can even though we don't have trees, we can farm algae we can create we can like purposefully grow algae in large amounts just to create oxygen we can also eat the algae, which is helpful. We can eat fish. So we have food, we can collect rainwater. So we have water we have pretty much everything that we need out in the ocean. So I think that's probably what we're GONNA do. There was another option that I considered is actually the first one I considered I was tempted to try to use the updraft of the lava to like create some sort of like flying city or something because like hot air balloons, you some sort of hot air balloon situation. The problem is that doesn't really work in terms of the way. Physics works because The reason hot air balloons work is because there's a differential pressure between the air inside the balloon in the air outside of the balloon. But in the case where all the IRS is hot everywhere, there's no pressure differential. Is this all hot? Really hot air balloon. Yeah and won't Fly I'll just probably burn up in Kit Potter. Well, yeah. But I mean yeah. So like okay but we still have so they'll be like an updraft at at the shores right because the ocean is cooler than the land. So there be airflow and that is true but the problem is that the airflow will be going towards land we don't WanNa go towards land we wanna go away from land and the other problem is that when lava comes in contact with seawater specifically's salt water the lava reacts with Salt and the hydrogen in the saltwater and creates hydrochloric acid. That's a that's a good one. I heard. So there is evidence of this happening during volcano eruptions where Salava just flows into the ocean there people around when that happens and they die because there's like a giant cloud of hydrochloric acid it arose their scanners, lungs it's not good. So we want to stay away from the shore. We don't want to go anywhere close to land or the shores. So I guess basically are our life will just be staying in the very middle of the ocean I don't know exactly because we're saying the floors so I guess we can't build buildings. This comes into the thing where we have to find a flora's. which was surprised when? I try to do it. Yeah. But even if we can't have building with floors, we can still go on like. Things I don't have floors like. Jetskis. jetsons. Just, piddle out on jetskis farming. Algae. Yeah. So that's basically where we'll live and I think the most important thing that I learned is that Bill Nye, the science guy is still entertaining. It was great. They had a whole parody song don't go chasing lava flows is awesome grads pretty good pawn right there. Yeah. Ben What question did you cover? So I looked at a question from episode twenty, six hours our first Thanksgiving episode and the question was what every meal was Thanksgiving dinner. So I went back and listen to part of it. I talked about just how incredibly unhealthy they to dinner is Margaret Look into whether the food supply even support this and Chris went into sort of I want to talk about today, which is How much how much time it would take and does like scheduling for this possibly work you WanNa correct my answer I want to I don't. I wanted to present a different interpretation of your answer while also talking about how I think your answer was kind of stupid and somebody's. I don't disagree I mean we we put to put in context of for those who don't us to well Ben you make your own bread, you make your own pasta last I heard you own tomato sauce pickles I took. My wife and I cook the vast majority of our meals. I make my own pita bread now, which is actually very funny that today that was good and then Chris I believe you're still has been broken since you moved in you have not yet bothered to get that situation that is correct and I have not done since quarantine I have not gone to the supermarket in like how five months. So we're coming up this question from slightly different angles on amount of cooking we do I would say so Christmas results. Basically what Chris want up with was was that cooking dinner is GonNa. Take you three hours and twenty minutes because three hours. To Cook a Turkey and you can cook everything else while the Turkey is cooking and that's how you do it efficiently he decided the cook a Thanksgiving dinner for every meal every day. So that's three, three hour and twenty minute cooking sessions per day Some flaws in this plan obviously, it is quite time intensive ten hours is a lot of time. It's quite wasteful. I. Feel like Cook in Tire dinner for every meal is, is gonNA generate a lot of leftovers that you have to have some way to use have to eat it all the spirit of Thanksgiving you eat a lot well, not fees into my third point is that you're going to die. Thinks dinner is not a particularly healthy meal. As long as you don't say like once you eat too much Turkey your skin falls off. I'm okay. I as far. I have not found that in my research. So I think for okay I wanted to find a slightly more practical from a time perspective and maybe somewhat more healthy and somewhat little more variety to it way to enact this this every meal was thanksgiving. Dinner. question. So. The first question answer is what makes up. In dinner, which Chris Chris Actually defined that his answer as Turkey mashed potatoes stuffing cranberry sauce burn squash. Little really specific and Pi I'm GONNA to modify this I'm GonNa say the required Thanksgiving dinner are Turkey cranberry often stopping, and you also need to size think the size can be any number of things I think I got my dishes from like top dishes list or something I would I would guess so yeah, I mean in the size can be you are from like. You know mash potatoes, potatoes, various forms of green bean corn Brussels sprouts a Lotta roasted vegetables, and a lot of things on them are kind of the main rules. For Thanksgiving sides. So. I think as long as you have those things that counts as a Thanksgiving dinner right So our new rules are you still do I have to cook one Thanksgiving dinner per day. You can't like make a giant Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. Because, bullshit. We're not going to do that. That's way to easy meal prep is for quitters exactly, and also like I'm going to say that you don't have to just like. Kind of boring, you're not gonNA just eat straight leftovers for each meal because once again it's of boring but your meal does it contain that that he's Thanksgiving dinner. So let's start with dinner is the simplest one 'cause we're gonNA actually do our one Thanksgiving dinner here. Cooking a family. I can still do a full Turkey for a lot of people can be. There are some other options for like two or three people can do a Turkey breast a half breasts of a Turkey is like two and a half or three pounds. Turkey. Only takes like an hour an hour and a half to roast. That's a lot more manageable on a daily basis in my opinion. For one person. So like if you were doing this Chris, he can buy drumsticks just get drumsticks Rosen like our. It's great. Cheating why don't be Salty Chris officials answer then Like like if you cook if you cook a full Turkey and just eat the drumsticks, how is that different from eating? Just cooking a drumstick it with I. Guess I guess that's you know like I'm just I'm just making this. You know I'm looking more practical. I'm making this more more feasible please don't do this. Is. Still. Very. Unhealthy. I am too lazy to do that Yup. I figured that there was not a very. Very a threatening situation for you Chris this is a pretty big jump in the direction regards to amount of cooking. Turkey. Makes him sides that one's easy. We can to get past that you cook dinner. It's GonNa. Take more time than he does right now but it's not insane. You'RE GONNA be cooking for like maybe an hour and a half total that's not too bad breakfast. So I have a couple options here depending on how generous you're feeling the definition of a Turkey dinner. So, let's go with the stretch for. So if you think about it, a Turkey is basically a Turkey. Like DNA. Wise. A Turkey AG is. A Turkey just earlier. So this does question why don't we eat Turkey eggs people eat all kinds of eggs, right? Like chicken eggs obviously people ducks quail eggs like EMU eggs and shit no, he's never even thought to eat Turkey eggs popped into my mind right and apparently so Turkey eggs, they're completely edible. They taste pretty much the same chicken eggs low at bigger and like the membranes a little bit thicker or something. The problem is that Turkey's lay eggs a lot less frequently the other birds. Chickens and ducks lay like an egg -Oday. But Turkeys lay at most two a week and also takes them a little bit longer start laying eggs like seven months, five months or something, and they cost more to raise chickens adds up. So no one's really uses Turkey or anything they will actually in the real world, we're no one's you know everyone's. Not. Thanks dinner all the time the cost like three dollars an egg. So why would you do that? I? Guess I did Google while you're talking it. I just loved that like can you eat Turkey eggs and it's like the first Turkey eggs are totally edible which can be read in a lot of different ways. It really can. I think I saw the same article I was like, where's this going to go? Yeah. So technically, a Turkey Aga's basically just Turkey and if you think about it stuffing, it's pretty much just toast like when you really get down to it. And if you think about it, cranberry sauce and cranberry jam are just the same thing really, and if you really want to, you can put anything on Omelette including road vegetables. So technically, a roasted carrots superhero omelet with hosts jam is Thanksgiving Dinner. Yeah. No I you might say. I thought now Marcus is one senior cheating. I think by this by by the letter of the law probably kind of counts. But I understand I understand I have a backup plan. that. Doesn't make you want to find a restaurant that actually makes Thanksgiving breakfast because that sounds pretty good honest to God i WanNa make that meal 'cause it sounds really tasty. Yeah. I'm probably going to do this I wanna make a lot of things I actually came within this except for one at the end. Okay, that's a teeth. It is so actual. Thanksgiving. Like thanksgiving dinner for breakfast does not having leftovers also gonna go ahead and put us out here as someone who does all the time a perfectly viable thing to do the data thanksgiving just eat leftovers we're going to hash instead hashes are great for my favorite meals because they're stupid easy. It's just like push up in a pan, fry it for a while. So I found one that actually uses leftover stuffiness the base here take a nice like pan pushing stuffing Turkey and it take whatever the trump was up throw him in there too in fry. crispy and eat that easy super easy and that is that is legitimately Thanksgiving dinner for breakfast can argue that one was getting close leftovers by do love hashes passer. Really good. So it it is. Hashes. Are Mine emergency like, Oh, I'm going away for the weekend and I have to much shit in my fridge. I need to eat. So it's going to make a giant hash of every thought the absolute best thing or the day after you either like by or make barbecue, and he had just like pulled pork and hiccup pulled pork Hash. Anyway I digress alright. So that's breakfast. Breakfast is pretty easy lunch also pretty easy. The obvious offers is just a Turkey sandwich right like you can just put literally things even leftovers on bread, eat it and frequently do that for Thanksgiving once again if you don't do that do it, it's amazing but I would like to I would like to go a little beyond that as well. So what bread is the most like stuffing? decided that's an onion real. Enroll before trying to like A. Slightly sweet buttery roll with dried ainge throughout on top. That's once again basically stuffing. Bread with butter nines and Shit, like come on. Come on is the. Seventh there it's. We're we're you gotta go with the spirit of the thing, Marcus we're there. We're going to let you go. I'm not gonNA stop you Bet I'm GonNa make my opinions known in between. All right. That's fair. You got your your. For, slap on their on your onion roll top whatever you want because we need something healthy somewhere in this day. So we don't just die or like poop again, one of the to do a nice like Kale Salad with like your roasted carrots, Brussels sprouts, and like an Nice cranberry Vinaigrette and that's that's basically Thanksgiving dinner right come on. We're there. Come on I do so much more visit. And it was. kind of like this, right? Yeah. Come on. My my greatest skill of self sabotage you should know this. I know I know that we're once again still pretty close to. Thanksgiving. Just leftovers throughout I want a couple more exciting option you can mix and not feeling the regular Thanksgiving standbys a little bit. Still. Hit you know the spirit of the letter of the law here I guess one that I think could maybe maybe be good maybe is I think can make pretty good things pizza I'm pretty sure you can form stuffing into a crust if it's just like you work hard enough and then there's spray cranberry sauce on there and then dump your toppings on there. I could actually pretty surprisingly tasty is like a Sushi pizza where it's like, okay, this is not it's not A. It's a circle of food with more food on it. Right? What would oh okay. So sausage gravy I think it would be either straight gravy or straight cranberry sauce or mixture of both I'm not sure out know what the right way to do. That is Rayvey. It'd be better than cranberry sauce I think that's kind of what I was thinking I cranberry sauce here but gravy seems way better. I think you want to incorporate some your cranberry sauce is basically like your piling up on your pizza right in cranberry sauce in in moderation I think using it as a base for the entire pizzas. It's GonNa be a lot of cranberry sauce. You're right now that I think about that, that will be God awful. So the. cranberry sauce you ever get those. I'm always a sucker for the those like non-seasonal, the Thanksgiving like Sandwich Delis like those two. And the local one by my office puts like an F. ton of cranberry sauce on the Sandwich and I fucking love it. It is so good. It is pretty good. So the other option. This is a recipe. I found that someone suggested that you actually putting in your body. Is, a recipe I found called Bill Whitmarsh is cranberry pasta sauce over ancient Angel Hair Pasta. And as far as like until this is basically just you take some cranberries and cook them with garlic and untitled with angel hair and that's basically it. So is this the one? You didn't WanNa make I really don't I'm GonNa give you guys a picture here because this is the picture that comes this is not like someone made it and then put this picture up as Mike. Evidence this the picture on the recipe this is apparently the best can look, and I'm not GonNa lie this. This looks like to me is is just a plate of here. That has like I. Mean it just it just cranberries like that's that's pretty much it. This looks like what your mom makes for the Halloween themed party right and she's like Oh yeah. The cranberries eyeball, right? Eyeballs and Lake Brain Zoo, and you look at it and you're like, Hey, this is probably like eight ninety percent good meal that's going to be ruined by the ten percent of quote Unquote Fund that was added, right? Yeah. So this one looks knocking ally absolutely horrendous but technically, you could do it and Turkey meatballs whether or something, and that's kind of Thanksgiving dinner. Don't it looks really bad. I'm not saying that he's saying that Pasta as technically stuffing. No, I hadn't actually incorporate stuff. Ready to discuss by this. Okay. Had to begin with pastas stuff. I'm not going leave. Although I'm surprised. If you think about it. I'M NOT GONNA. I'm not GONNA make that. I, think if if I were going to try to push my way, enter this I would say you would do like spirals butternut squash and make noodles out of that and have stuffing crumble or something. Yeah. Something like that. You can make it work. It's my it's my stuffing pasta sheets exact lasagna sheets could could you make a Thanksgiving Lasagna? You could do that? You could you could layer stuffing. I think you could do it later stuffing Turkey cranberry gravy and veggies. I don't think it'd be on just be a casserole I mean it would be it would be a it'll be a casserole, but you could call it a Lasagna and people would go. Oh, there's like more. People go and people go go come on come on basically, thanksgiving? Dinner. And then you get kicked out of your in laws. It's great. Anyway I think that's my answer mostly is that. I. Really just want to say that I think it's ridiculous for Chris should make entire Thanksgiving dinner for every every day I wanted to give any kind of alternative which I think I did why are you scared that someone actually took my advice you Chris I'm not scared of that. It's funny because my memory of Chris's Thanksgiving answer was like, okay. So these beans take like half an hour and plus the water has to boil. So that's that's half hour than we get onto the next step and we'll add another twenty minutes onto that and then. Everything was just done in sequence and I remember being like this is not how you would cook. I'm pretty sure I had had simultaneous cooking. Yeah. He won Ben said the Turkey takes three and a half hours and everything's done during that. It made of like okay. That's much better than how I remember being like pretty sure that. I was also thinking I was like it actually works because like the Turkey is GonNa be in the oven and ninety five percent of the things that you A. Thanksgiving. Get cooked in the oven. We didn't say how many of you have. that. That is true. I mean if the floor was Lavi infant up, you have all the Evans you need you just have to wait it is way easier to Cougar floor. Well. Maybe easier. Okay quicker. Quicker. Yes. Guys I. Think we I think we did I think we fixed our previous episodes, which means we get to move onto you or would you rather which is going to be fresh stuff? Fresh stuff I. Also because we're intentionally using old questions for. Aceh. Guys that turned out a lot about the. We opened up we opened up the would you rather and it was a little stinky actually old. Has Been in here for awhile musty. Something principles you rather we decided to take two of our previous questions again, keeping our throwback theme and do see which one you prefer was the hypothetical that was true in your life because we didn't we didn't do would you rather back then so we can turn these into would others yeah. That's why we're doing it. All makes perfect sense nobody looked to close. Ben. would you rather have their skates permanently attached to your feet or have the floor always be ice so I think the important distinction to make here is their roller skater only for you and for me Isis for everyone. It's all the like just the floor of the room you're in. It's like everybody everywhere to definition of floor that we've come up with money times right and then we decided to this time the non confusing super explained definition of what Flora's. Won't bother to reiterate because I'm sure you know it because we certainly understand it anyway to this question is the Bonneville car ice. We we could. We could go back and debate for another hour. We can do a hold of an episode what floor. Our next episode, what are we doing a floor was? Professional, he'd bring in a guest who is like a florist. You. All right. Anyway the important thing about the roller skates is that okay well, personally, I don't know how roller skates. That's pretty bad example but if you did know how to Roller Skate that is actually somewhat useful means of transportation whereas the ice is always going to suck unless you have ice skates your. Fair, are you allowed to wear stuff 'cause like you can just wear cleats? Yeah I think it's still sucks like like it's like you put on cleats and it's just as walking on non ice floor. That's true. Right like it's still definitely has an impact. Also it's cold. It's cold a F. We had the opposite problem as the lava we have an infinite heat sink. Yeah. Yeah. It's a bit less extreme in that. Instead of being two thousand degrees away from our current temperature, it's like you know fifty. Think about how fast or hot air balloons would go up I mean you could heat heat a room that has an ice floor like if you go to a hockey game, it's a little chilly in there because trying to keep the ice frozen benefit worry about that. You just crank the heat up a bit. Yeah that's true. Some trying to imagine the the action. So would involve like precision like stairs. I feel like roller skates actually better first heirs. cleats though yeah cleats would help a lot with would help a lot of stairs or you ski downstairs I mean down isn't really the problem down yeah. A problem. Down, way, more dangerous than up I mean up can become down pretty quickly. With ice the floors is you have a lot more flexibility what you wear on your feet so you can you can change your foot situation. Can Wear Skis you can wear cleats, you can wear ice skates. So a big problem I've seen with roller skates is that you can no longer drive car yet. We actually address that when we're entering the full question before. Yeah. But if Flora's ice, you can figure out some way to have car like vehicles that everyone can use like snowmobile type situation. I'm pretty sure you could get a custom car that would have a different pedal like I think they have those for people who aren't you know or disabled. Ultra foden how would you modify? Yes. Just lock your foot onto the pedal. Basically you just put you just turn the. Switch the acceleration to a hand control somewhere our show. All right fair. You just don't use your life fine. You just get or you can get some S- custom pedals that make it practical to use your rollerblade feet. I don't think it'd be that difficult this actually, we didn't say you can double shoe. We did say they in the parameters of the question when we entered in the episode rem say again now. You would eat some big shoes. You got some big shoes to fill. And I think we also said you can't Lake Glue the wheels. Make Sense. Yeah. Let's keep. Let's keep it that you are on roller skates all right here. We're not. We're not getting around that way. Also are they roller skates roller blades I e is at two and two or foreign. I would say skates blade is much harder because you can stand on skates. On blades you can use Santa and it's just like it's it's GonNa take a lot more out of. I think more maneuverable with blades of actually how to use them. I would actually probably if I had to pick this for my real life, I'd probably take blades that feels very shortsighted. You want all this can get dudes. Don't feel like I'm more stable though because you a I mean like two legged tripod on blades and the skates you have to have your lake, your feet flat, which is not a good. It's like a tricycle versus a bicycle. We'll. Right. But a tricycle was more stable than a bicycle like you can. You're you can go faster on a bike. You don't really have balance issues if you know how to ride a bike, right but I mean if you if I guess if you plan on Skating At all times, you have a point, but I prefer to not all literally always be skating like what did he go to the Grocery Square standing in line? What are you GonNa? Do I mean if you're skates plays, it does make stairs probably even harder because now you need to keep both sets like both rows of wheels on a step, but you have so much of a writer for you have you have more points of contact I feel like I feel like you're making it way harder played. Out No I I mean I've only rollerbladed I've never had the roller skates I. Don't think I don't have a lot of experience with either I'd be pretty comfortable getting around in rollerblades I feel like it's very shortsighted. Have you ever have you ever tried to go upstairs with rollerblades? Yeah. You just you just go sideways. She feel like it'd be harder to go sideways on Roller Skates But Y. Because then the edge, so you don't fall down the stairs. So you don't put your wheels in the direction of the stairs not no I get the sideways thing but I going you can do the exact same thing and roller skates roller on roller skates the wheels around this is not in the middle. So it's not gonNA line with the Stair. If there's like narrow stairs, somehow I don't think the half inch right you'll position is going to make the difference on whether we want to have roller I don't think skates or blades debate is going to decide what we want the Florida is or if we want to have them on right, I forgot about the situation. It's a rollerblade apparently was enough for us to talk about. All right. So there there's one other big thing about the floor always being is that we have briefly touched on, but one is societal. One is just you like, do you want to be the odd one out in this roller skate things or do you want to kind of misery loves company an everybody's on the floor is always is mode I think of it if it societal if we have the the floors and ice, then society will come up with solutions for that right you won't have to deal with it on your own, which is helpful like smarter people that are smarter than me will come up with situations solutions. Do we have anything that was good about the the floor being? Now looking at our one word, if there wasn't anything particularly good about it, what were words I did windy days I remember I calculated. How much would you need to get dumpster going which was not a lot of wind? It was not very that was not a very good one daily life you live which could have been anything. Yeah. And Ben Just Ben's one word is is is. Talked about. The fact that that is never melts it is an infant I brought up the heat sink thing. Is Not the best way to describe that but we persevered. So I feel like the societal things a big point in favor of going with four always being ice. Yeah I. Kind of agree see I like society functioning might go I might use that and go rollerblading. Scape foresight yourself functionality different. Yeah. It'll be different. We'll come up with ways to function. Don't you want to see like a snowmobile bus? Cool the snow mobiles. Someone's done turn a school bus into snow mobile. There's yeah there's no, it hasn't happened. As it looked so bad look at right now. These are people who move there snowmobiles with school buses, which has also pretty cool. Oh, here's one. Oh God that's a snow coach. That's a thing. Oh why it's It's just a thing already. Staffing already. Miss Enters this picture of like this line. This is what Kapiti are. A better. Here's a better image spike. It's like a two year old through tank. Images in the actual thing are better Oh holy crap that other one. Very cool. Yeah. Yeah. It turns out the first. Article, is not necessarily the best example of the form. And it's basically just a a bus with giant wheels. Yeah. Giant treads. Yeah. Just cool. That's very cool. All right. So then would you rather have alerts gates or have the floor? And I'll go with ice floor. I. Just think that we can humans are and genius bunch. We'll figure it out I don't know do out of my own. Chris I agree Yay. I'm not going to be the thing that ruined society. So I'M GONNA go with rollerskates mostly by rose kids I mean rollerblades also I just WanNa rollerblade I don't think rollerblades right move dude I really like versus skates I mean I just don't. I feel you're visiting. Yeah. I'm not GonNa Convince you clearly that some other time would you rather have escaped rollerblades got why rollerblades still so expensive who's even buying them apparently, they actually had a weird bursts of resurgence because of quarantine 'cause like thing you can do outdoors and hundred fragging dollars for rollerblades. Ones. I can get one with three big wheels for three hundred, fifty, nine dollars seems excessive. It's the rollerblade maxim. Too, bad. Anyway. That's our shopping. Advice is rollerblades are expensive. If you want something less expensive, you can go to www dot patriots dot com slash of Sirte hypotheticals and clicked that become a patron button. It's GonNa cost you one, hundred, one, hundred sixtieth of that three hundred, sixty rollerblade because it is just one dollar has a confusing way to say it. That's why clarified at the end for people who didn't want to do that it's one dollar one dollar become patron.

And richie for a long at the iron range for a long time. I didn't realize that. He recruited me to or tried to recruit me to go to washington. And i didn't go. He actually ridge mckay. End up getting landing. Jason terry that year but if for people that are member. Jason terry flipped at the last second went to arizona and then a couple years later. They end up getting dan dick. That was after he was gone. But originally case head coach liberty. The flames are getting ready for the ncaa tournament. They're taking on oklahoma state mile modern cade cunningham. He's had a mere correal crazy journey. where start off in. Indy made his way to the pacific northwest plane. College basketball played overseas. Came back to seattle bounce around back to seattle u. dub went to portland state portland state oregon state or portland. Colorado state oregon state and then ultimately new mexico got fired into mexico. We've got a lot to get to. So i think what i'm gonna do is record a special pod with some pics and maybe drop that tomorrow. What do you guys say. Before the tournament starts the first four starts then of course picks But i thought you'd really enjoyed this conversation with a guy who Has by his own accounts own accounts. He's gone through some ups and downs in this business but the liberty would have gone last year likely to the tournament and they did go two years ago and they did pull an upset and now they got oklahoma state. They're staring the bureau of and we'll see if they can pull off that upset. Thirteen seed taken on a four. The head coach of the liberty flames is rich. Mckay he joins me now. Hagenbeck your first memories of hoop. Or when. And where. And i think i was five or six and At a nerve who was balling on a nerd poop dog late deep range reverse dunks all the above and they have. Did you have my dad and mom. They had their door to their bedroom closet. Next to it on the right hand side. So i had the ability to shoot the ball off the side and then off the wall and like i had all the trick shots as well and then my brother and i we would play like games of one on one full core don coop. 'cause they had they had like a little kind of alleyway in their bedroom. And so what. What was the nerf hoop setup. Okay all of that. I had an older brother. We get in fights every day and We had the we had the jd version. The nerve net and that was all jacked up in You know my dad played at the university of mexico in the east from indianapolis snapped town is were kujat Her stereo lives so basketball was just as prevalent in our homes. Always talked about That's where i got my passion for it How good a play where you not as good as you but You know. I love the game and a eight slipped into in breathe it so i was highly competitive in the plane at seattle pacific and then overseas for a couple of years. I'm really really got the most out of my ability cause how many hours i spent in it or on it but i never thought i'd coach the love the play. Okay so johnny pacific who. You're getting caught terry. Remember coach terry. Don't all time. At the time he was the all time leading scorer stamford. I think todd lakey past and in some other since then but play the nba or aba in the nba tremendous for me not just because of his bastable accurate but he was also a tremendous mentor. I used to go up to his office. Acting like wonder talk some ball in honestly doug. I really just wanted to spend time with me. He was he's fabulous. What how'd you get quite played a little uptempo little pro style. And then in terms of he was just a great mentor. Like what anyone hang out around him. What sorts of things like again. You're a college kid. He's gonna dope you know he's lived the life so like how would he mentor. What what because. Those are the building blocks of who you are as your coach to me like the we we have people in berkeley. It's in my profession not yours but especially my profession who they minimize the importance of that relationship between college coach and player and how much you know so many kids. Now come from split families Some comes from dysfunctional families. But even ones that come from. Like i had a two parent household but my college coaches were father type figures. What was what was he like during those times can spent with you when when you pretend like you wanna talk ball. Yeah the word that comes to mind is he was transformational. You know not only did he have these great stories and she would help me. Visualize the dreams. That i had when he when he talked about the work ethic you needed to be a pro The commitment that you had to have but what was most important or most valuable to me man. You really love me unconditionally. You know with all of my jonker. The voids are holes. Wounds that i had in my life. I just felt like he was there and he was. He was the first man that had ever met who actually read the bible that had on his desk in. Just just tremendously considerate of who i was as a person it made me feel valuable And had these words of life that he would relate to to scripture that i just thought was instrumental to my development and i didn't know it then but i found out later. What he was doing is he was just prepared. Me for what was going to be a career choice that i was gonna make and how the importance of of a person's play or results of their statistics that wasn't as important as a person's heart in person wellbeing in a from some of those fundamentally deposited principles It helped shape me and in many years. Thirty years ago in who i am today. Show you get dumpling huckabee. You're keen decent. We didn't make the ncaa tournament daily or decent so you get them playing. And then what was the decision to go play overseas. I was. I work in a from seattle or lived in seattle working for basketball travelers nails hopkinson in the and finally got the call to go play new zealand. In as i did that. I had a friend of mine Do a worked with as a graduate assistant at university washington. The first time i was there he got me into with the guiding dale air in between seasons in new zealand. I went to go be a division. Two assistant at queens college never again never really thought coaching was going to be my deal. I'm going to hoop santa. As long as i could so but one thing not go ahead so well. They queens college. Who's the head coach. Dale and. That's that's in queens. New york is in charlotte north carolina. It was a queen queen city. Okay got it. Who's an all girls. School and they hired coach layer to bring back basco to bring basketball to the campus. So the first thirteen men on campus were basketball player. And i mean. I know it's a religious school but it's kind of a kind of an easy fail. They're like you wanna come and play basketball an all girls school like you're literally the only guys the ratio the female to male ratio is like nine to one. I mean dudes if you can't get a date there so it's It's you're gonna have a rough go of it. It's the problem right. You can't get a date at queens college when when the when there's there's thirteen dudes on campus. What was what was dale. Like as a coach. And what was your. What was your job during your time you were there. The division two ranks. You do a little bit of everything. Coach layer was phenomenal. He had a he had a balance. That was really healthy between family life. In how much time he spent with his career with our players and i lived across the street from the gym. So i was single at the time so i i had a ton of access on a freedom another one. That gets my way to model for me. What a coach should look like. And i know you know this you. Your dad was a coach in in. You know as a as a son who has coaching his home. How much time. He really invest in other kids lives. You know. it's not like a coach layer was he. He was committed in developing and transforming but he was also really good in his own home in again another foundational piece for me At that would set the table for how i tried to pursue my career when When i was there where you i know religion. It's so important in your life and obviously you know you're a place like liberty but we were you raised in a in a religious home or is this something that that Took place during your kind of form of college years where he had Or your views became much christian. It my my mom. Dad were divorced so I grew up in a home. That had a bad a a faith and we went to church My brother my older brother really had a strong faith. That kinda inspired me. And then when i was nineteen i was just finishing up high score eighteen months and i went to junior cosmic fresher as when i invited jesus into my life and have been a christian every sense so i think you know for me doug i describe it as you know it just all the that night. I made that decision. It was like opening the door to a mansion in so many rooms to explore some Experienced at experiences that to have in this in this great big little house. And i'm still in the mansion still experiencing them but gave me a sense of peace and purpose that i'd never had before. Okay queens college. You're playing professionally. What made you come back stateside to to coach again. Yeah i came back. I got a job at seattle. Pacifica a married. Julie who has been my wife for thirty years going on thirty one in august in the came back to my alma mater. Shortly after that. I got a chance to go to bradley university with jim molinari and then back to the northwest when i started recruiting you way we hold on hold on. You're you're your hill around here. So coach mall goes mojo people who know him in the mid west right now. Did you know my dad's signed him in college. Know did he really yeah at creighton. Is that really the creighton. He's jim motors jim. Molinari don't look. I didn't know he had a game. No he was a hell of a player and i think he transferred to western illinois right. That weren't he. I think you're right. Yeah so he went to creighton. And i mean it was never forget it like i did a bradley game one time and i think my dad had mentioned it. I don't really remember how i came up. And then you know like bird. He's he's there's a little bit of course come for where's waldo. We're all sudden. Like i'd be like i was at minnesota and there's by coach go schmo on on the staff and then as rosca. There's coach mel on on the staff with the miles. And and all the he's got all these stories about my dad so yeah goes mode was man was he. He was so intense. The hiring process alone. You know you took me. I was at never been division one and he took me. He really grow me. It made me value How how hard it was at that level in lent lewis in his work ethic but many he was really really good coach in another one. You get another one of the people that was valuable in my life and building some foundation. But i was order really enjoyed the area. That's you're telling me. Look bob bender seattle which is an incredible city. Right and i have important. Basketball is the bureau. I have a place in. Your area writes the old old bill and they but it's really hard to go from seattle to peoria. Let's just let's just call it like it is not like the or you don't get me wrong but Okay so then so then you then you got a job at you. Yes so so. Bob bender left illinois state. You go go to university washing. Obviously the the red birds in the brains are big rivals in better. I think had a little bit of a level respect for the job that we were doing it. bradley and i got to know rajak letty. In that recruiting says we'd be recruiting against each other and Yeah and then so. Billy king was his initial higher and billy went to go to the nba. In coach. better called me in the summer and asked if i want to come back to seattle and a day later i was on the plane in started the rebuilding iraq. You go back so so so. That's the respect you hire guy who competed against in the league and of course location wise. It totally made sense I love that you are the second choice like that. That's amazing. yeah that's that's that's that's a lot of people. I just just works out. Okay so you get to u. dub it's nineteen ninety three i nineteen ninety-three heck ed's a cool place but i don't remember u. dub being any good at that point in time but who who who proceed was. My personal wasn't a quarterback who was the question for coach before gas after it was lynn. Nancy was a coach before. I can't remember it was. Was it less stevens lyn stephen. Okay yes okay. So you're there so now certain. Okay you have to go from the valley which is really that. The mid nineties at the time like tulsa is rolling of absolutely rolling You know i mean the whole league is is kind of ridiculous at that point that people forget how good valley was going going back then. The bears role in at then was southwest missouri. That was such good basketball and incredibly difficult court venues to go in and try and get it up. The valley was legit totally chip fox.

Let's make it interesting with william hill. Sportsbook now okay. So what was what was Bob benders plan for was just we gotta we gotta recruit all these local kids are what. What would you guys set. How'd you how'd you decide to rebuild that program. I think part of it was trying to keep guys in the in the seattle area or northwest area. Close to home you know. At the time. Oregon wasn't oregon. Like it is now as you would struggled a little bit in watching state now. Kelvin was there and he he kind of had it rolling so we We felt like we had to at least try and be able to win our state and And he wanted to do it with west. Coast kids Bender was a former duke assistant. So gotta add context or lower. We weren't afraid to go anywhere in the country to try and get some one but we really knew we had we. Good close home and Again as as what i saw. This is tough hard nosed point guard. That i don't know people give you enough credit but you were one of the best passers that ever seen in high school basketball elite you relate you know know but you big time this you know you went to notre dame and i didn't big time you. Here's how i remember it. Okay do you have other guards. You had Older you had older guards. So i would have had to sit so again you have to. This is where you have to factor in like part of our problem. I thought in recruiting to my dad. Is we kind of knew too much. Right they start. But but and and also there was a level of lack of faith because washington hasn't been good. Just hadn't you know before. Washington took off. It's hard to relate to people now And i don't think people understood. Heck ed and how great a place that was the plate back then right it just it. All of it hadn't hit yet But but you did you sign mccullough right beyond luton and donna walks and i believe i believe before you laugh. You tell me if i'm wrong. You guys actually had a commitment from jason terry and great memory and then and then what happened. So what happened. Tell me the jason's dairy story because this is midnight lute what really happened. How did jerry go from committed hometown. Washington turn this thing around to all sudden. He's playing he's a seat. He went to be a sixth man he started arizona. Those senior year of men was funny about it was only there two years as well and then i got the job at portland state. As a head coach break. We were we. Were starting to flip it a little bit. We are becoming more competitive and When when when donald watts the committed we add he. And jason terry on for some elite camp or something and that was closer. Jt like we. We talk every day. I talked to moms in the and he committed so we we thought we legit had when the best backwards in the country certainly in the west but maybe in the country and jason called night and he said coachmen and coach. A i didn't get anything compared to and i'm not gonna go to arizona but i just gotta take another busy. I'm not going there. It goes i promise not going there. You a visit ca. But i'm not going there. You know me and my mom would we. We just wanna see something else arizona coach. I said jay man ideas. I'm just telling you is hard to say no to them. Coach jolson no. He's known for for naveh dude at the midnight hour. He said night loot coach. Coaching about didn't hear from for about three days and call me. Coach coach ban a made the switch. I said man. I'm not john coach bender. You've got to tell him in. Yeah he broke my heart but he had a heck of a career there in the league but man was coach does it. Matter ethic there was a few of them now. matt optically reserve. Didn't he commit. Unlv in coach is And with good reason arizona's a great program but man man that was a tough one. Okay so you get to portland state. At the time they just one or two state was a restart they had in nineteen seventy nine. No nineteen seventy nine larry. Bird magic johnson and freeman williams or three of the names on the first team. All american lists will they ban the program after freeman williams left because of the ncaa. Improprieties did not have basketball for sixteen years and they decided we started in when they restarted a renounced division one and we had an eight year probationary period that we couldn't play in the ncaa tournament. So i got the job doug because nobody else wanted to your how. I'm twenty nine. I'm the youngest head coach in in the country. Okay so you're twenty nine. how much you making. I think the salary was sixty thousand at the time. Beautiful area right european northwest guy anyway. An incredible incredible place to live show. What's the process. Like legitimately starting a program. Yeah you knows incredibly healthy for me. The first year we were there. We got to scholarships and didn't feel the team but we took. Brian town was a walk on at university of washington. That came with us. And i had one assistant brad suzy. Who's been with me every day. Since then i know it never never leave your side. I got it in and we took way. how'd you. how'd you meet. where'd you come from. A brad was in He was a food broker for damon and associates met him through a mutual friend. Us a heck of a player. At the time the eastern michigan he said an nc term record for most three pointers in a game. He made nine of them. They lost a pit. When pitt had dmitri's gordon shawn miller Brad scored like twenty seven points in twenty one minutes. Twenty seven points twenty one minutes wackos brought only twenty one minutes. Twenty twenty-seven is why transferred points per minute coach. Go do the man coach so yes. Susan hit off know. Fate had shared the same faith passion for basketball With kids the first year we sit out We played to onto nearly every day. You know less damon stoudamire is dad. Is willy willy. Played it at portland state. So david would run his summer camps at At our gym and of course would be there for a day or two and then we'd have some of the best runs in the city at portland state. Jim that's where i'm at email. You daca beano all all the guys coming up. Yes you play so we started to transfer jason hartman. Our second year in ended up. Yeah we we ended up to Hartman was you. Eat your red correct that first year. You know i didn't have practice would go and a visited. Dick davey at santa clara dick bennett. Who was at wisconsin Men i just watch practice got to learn and absorb and then the first year of us actually playing. You know the internet wasn't what is alan. There's not social media. So i got to make all these mistakes that no one saw but we We had the right kind of kid so we got fairly competitive in just two short years in fifteen twelve. And but i'm telling you it was. It was really hard to recruit yet. We can't go to the tournament for six more years But you know but the guys that we hadn't on loved coaching nigger. They were the guys that no one else wanted in had something to prove so it ended up helping us be really competitive in a very early stage of our program. It new mexico to be so after After portland state. I took the job at colorado state in was was there for minute because a lot of state At again we that second year. You know it's a restart program in the ad. At the time. Tim weiser called and said he had an interest in. Can't remember who the other candidate was a. It's a it's the late. neil dougherty. who's kansas in. It was he. And i and i ended up getting a job in We inherited a program from stu moral who was a heck of a coach. You remember coq moral right. He went to then he went from there. He went to a tremendous coach in. We inherited that program in Tomorrow we'll play every time down. They use the card system. We had a little different philosophy. But so i think the kids kinda so good about you know may be able to play a little bit more freely offensively but he had such a good culture. I think we went. Nineteen the first year to the elite eight of the united st and then eighteen the next year and Meant it was and My career was there for two years. So two years of cordless day two years at colorado state and then i took the oregon state job in Pitch barnhart was the athletic director in a took it because number one. My dad was diagnosed with cancer in two. And it was a chance to recruit la la a ton go back and forth bigger budget the pac ten at the time it was. You know what. I always aspired for in terms of level in the top job in and i didn't do a good job there. Doug i wasn't will your brother coach there. You know it's in wayne. Tinkle's done a fabulous job. It's a little it's it's it's a little different now. I mean like they had. Don't call us team ancient. They've redone a bunch of now and they built the practice facility. Now yeah right but it's you know it's nothing short of a miracle routes other did forever and what and what. They're doing what they're doing out like people don't under there in watts do is it. There's a hard especially with all the money. Oregon spending and and and the location of okay. So if you could go back and think okay should you have not taken. Your job was the what was. Was there something that you would fix like why. Why don't you think you did a good job orchestra waving lot yet. We should've stayed longer at oregon state. But again you gotta understand when so you remember. the pac. ten at the time was ridiculous. They it was so every team in that league was an ncaa tournament team except for us in washington state. So let me let me say what you can't say gay college cheating time. They had america caught cheating. Oh golly breaking news like no they were buying and they had dudes by joining the bikes football. Tremaine folks jilani gardner like they had dude dude. Sharieff students do stanford montgomery who is unbelievable. And they had they had pros everywhere Adam keith collin twin lick d like you kind of go through an already like they had brevin knight dude u. dub it just now got it finally got going Oregon started getting jerry green. You got like seventy pros on their roster. You usc erin. Zona is wins the national championship during during this time they have all nba players right. Like you do oregon oregon state you get the so benjamin was that was that your biggest. Finding that intend corey he was he was after me. I was only there two years again. And i would have stayed at oregon state. I think i think we would have done better. I'm not saying coach now. I was in a lot to learn but my dad passed away. When when i was there passed away in two thousand and the new mexico job opens in my second year there when my dad played at mexico always my dream job. I just like buying. It was just like fine. Fine fine twenty. Their dad dad. Dad dies it's new mexico. All the timing everything align. It's like the good lord giving you a sign. This is where you're supposed to be there and literally. I thought when i took the job. I thought well that'd be my last job. I i'm i'm at the place where i've always aspired to be dream job all of that and in our first frame priscilla was coach ed At that preceded our first three years. Were were first two years. We're a little tough. And then we. Danny granger was there. My second year in our third year. I mean he he. He was outstanding. Like is an incredible sixteen. Pick in the draft will. We made it to the term and three years also nova in the first round. But i really felt like and i got a contract extension. I really felt like minimum. Never gonna leave this place it's albuquerque. The fan support was great. All that and then rudy davalos. Ad he retired in the he said you know. I'm not so sure. You'll be long for this job when i leave. And why do you say that rudy. And he said i just anyway. We got a new ad in the end. And i could tell. A wasn't his guy we. We weren't winning the why. What why what. What what was it about you. All sudden he comes in pay man good and he said i don't know what you know. How volatile the fan base can be there and we had lost the only state that men mexico bath. We lost a few in a row on the road like my fourth year. We were seventeen and thirteen and then my fifth and last year i think we started out like eight and two we had beaten the eighth ranked which it's all team An enlisted abbadi huggins. Kansas state team in the final retirement in vegas and then we went on the road and lost the bobby knight for his whatever record breaking win into in lost our season opener to tcu. And i got back. And we were like i want to say one in one in neutral games and oh and four on the road and in a poll. Crabs are a We had meetings. I'm really concerned about the road losses. got jammed up. I got i got ended. I thought man. I'm doing a great job or we're doing a great job and we should give us a little slack. We're still in the building mode. And i coached at honestly coached at feeder the latter part of the season and about a month later he decided to let go. Let me go. Let me finish the season. I wasn't going to do that. But i called dick bennett. Who's a mental or and he said don't quit on those kids make sure they know you're with them and we lost like our last five and it just it just ended poorly a van based wait. Wait when you said you coach out of fear. I understand what you're saying like. That's it's one of the things that that you know like. I think kind be old school coaches. Don't know that they they don't mean to to every kid but there's occasionally kids react with like. I felt like that was my face issue in plan for coach. We all kind of feared him. But i would play in an effort to try and cleese him right so i i wouldn't shoot because if i shoot missy get mad at you and and it was just a. I was shared of taking me out of the game. Asthma team like we. Can't we went out. You just do what you do and let him figure it out. That sounds great. But when you're teaser as a kid and you're a coach's son who's who's been you know all the time and again like you feel your code says yeah. He got play game within reason but as a coach coach. So you coach out of beer. How did how did it affect you to coach out of fear again. Now this is my dream. Job is where my dad played a by hole desire one of my greatest desire was to make the mccain make people proud of make my dad proud and make people proud of of our our time in as lobos in i the opinion of others was way too important to me and a half feared letting them down and i think when we as men live in that are driving. That lane were very susceptible to you. Know to to ruin so it It just and again. It wasn't wasn't a time in my life that i felt really healthy emotionally or spiritually in the Don't get me wrong. Guy whose face lee he knew. I needed to go through that part of that process. Was you know coming to the end of myself. And relying more on my faith in i did just on me so yeah and and that was it. The year five. I was done in. I was without work for about three weeks. Thought about going into Analysts for tv and interviewed at the mountain network The now defunct mountain network ignited liberty cau- in a went out to the east coast for the first time became the head coach at literally. Geico knows there many reasons why you ride from the exciting adventure of the daily commute to the peace of mind that geico always has your back. Twenty four seven access to claim service and legendary customer service but pamela mud had one reason in particular. My skin is extremely averse to most fabrics except for the soft buttery feeling leather thankfully. I found my clan of leather lovers in the bike and community. It's been life changing motorcycle. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more good afternoon. Would you like to try a free. Sample of our double fudge brownie. Sure mesh very good. I'll just take one more just to be sure. Yep still very good. Some things never change like never being able to take just one free sample and geico. Saving folks. Lots of money on their car insurance macadamia nut. I taste take one more. I thought so fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more. But you left in the middle to work. For for tony bennett. I'm at liberty years. We have Seth curry stepbrother He was leading score. We had beaten. Virginia that my second year and man i was enjoying it. I really love being. Their school was great people. Great but tony called in said you know i want you to come and be my associate coach gone from a ridiculous contract and i said no Felt good about being a head coach cow. I get a My wife and i we prayed about it. He asked again in the man. I just felt like it was. I felt like i needed to go in and serve instead of served in being an assistant. I hadn't been assistant for thirteen years at the time. But i thought it would be healthy for me just to dictate it again. My mental or tony. And i were good friends. I felt like old coach bennett. Something duct coach dick bennett. Because of how good he'd been to me. And i decided to go. And i didn't know what i was signing up for. You know when you go from making all those decisions when you practice who you recruit Whether or not you can go see your kids play in your an assistant. You're now supporting a vision casting. It it was. It was different but man. Was it really good for me. Not only not only. Did i get some mind. Space back not being indicted by the loss. you know Coaching and freedom really invested in relationships and being that same transformational type coach. That legit that i had it helped me. Recalibrate recenter what What my purpose was in coaching. And then i learned. I learned from the best a defensive system that you know we've leave implemented here that's proven to be pretty efficient How does how does tony do it. How do you in this in this climate and if you have to run your stomach you In in this climate where basketball is just not taught the most a high level kids the way it played at virginia. And i remember when tony got the job and we could go back and you know because it was a search firm higher ties to the area. It'll never work you got to recruit the dm be you gotta get local kid. You can't play slow. How did he do it. So i think tone wanted the job because thought it could be like a stanford on east coast in he admired the fit won't at stanford kid tad because they had a conscientious in the classroom Sometimes translates on the court as well and our first recruiting class. Not i'm not talking about. When i got there in april but the class after that man they were called six shooters it was it was six. It was ranked fifth in the country or something and it was six players of which only two of them stay and our first two years were fifteen and sixteen and then sixteen and fifteen. So we're thirty one in thirty one after two and the three things at a i think would answer your question number one. He's amazingly consistent. He's got an unwavering belief. In the way you play defensively in a commitment that you have to number two he recruits the right kind guys like he. He was uninterested in what the ranking was like. You i know you are highly rated recruit but you had to have a sense of selflessness in a really competitive And passionate disposition for the game in order to be successful for them. And then i'm telling you. Like joe harris and london parameters and anthony gill. And like we just took mitchell. We took guys if we are beaten. We're beaten mid majors on guys. And i think then thirdly what's not talked about because not many people. He's such a humble. Humble individual is really one of the best coaches have been around but one of the best people. He's got this. But how is the real nate. Is that not never forget when they virginia lhasa. Unbc but when the year before syracuse the thing one going into the final four right and they grab tony after the game. And i mean. I have no ties to the program. Euro other than. I've known tony most of my life and i respect environment and he's been incredible to me. Ask that but this this home. Kind of race and passion. That's a real thing that's not just the tv. Oh no doubt no doubt. Ease ease His dad would tell you how temperamental and that's why he retired like he just it just little things bothered his dad in tone as this ability is faith is deeply rooted. But he's he's got this ability that i'm just telling you that third quality. He's insatiable about getting better. So but he's got this ability to to process the negative in such a way that motivates him or inspires him to turn it too good to turn it to improvement to use it as a lesson. Not loss is it's uncanny. It's not not. Many people have the depth that he has a in. It's not only the state but it is person and i think because of that man. We probably have an enemy in the in the world. But i think he s success because he's relentless in pursuing desired outcome and unwavered by versity. Always your decision. Like the leap. It wasn't hard because it was backed the liberty place a really hadn't affinity for Yet i knew. I was going to miss the significance of the game. You know when you're like. When i left we were number two in the country for ten weeks of the year and every game was a big game and it was sold out every venue we played in and just being able to compete for it all was at a really really liked it. I wanted to be a head coach again in in. I couldn't imagine a better place to get a chance to do it at the time then liberty so that was that did make it hard but it was an hour from tone in Close friends at it. Felt right But i do miss. The you know the significance of the game on occasions yet. They've reached such a high level now whenever they lose. Its sky's falling. He's created expectation there. That's a that's hard to keep up with. What is it what does it mean you. What does it signify. People have been around that program and tony and how you guys him win. The whole thing house is phenomenal. You'll especially given what you alluded to earlier. When when he was interviewed outside the locker room after the first one seat at ever lost his sixteen and he did the interview number one. Most people would have done it. But the words that he said. I thought it was those special That meant more to most coaches and into a lot of people than you. Winning a national championship a stain. Whatever you said after that game. So i i think it was. It was ben guys way of saying a. Here's a gift to you for being obedient to what you were called to in Could have been happier than thought of someone that deserted more laughed and watch them when it. What are those tough. Yeah you know. My i still don't have it national championship ring with the now. I was happy for those guys man. They laboured hard in order to do something. Like that. And i have been gone a few years. So the at jackson tied power guides. And those guys were still guys at. I recruited or help recruit but it's hard to watch. What else went the national championship. But know i felt like i was a little little part of it in the in in it. It gave me a dream that one day we were gonna cut the nets ourselves. Okay so you get back to liberty. Now you've done a little bit of everything right. You've been head coach. Starting a program you've been at cochin state. You been back to oregon state. That didn't work out well. New mexico is your dream job. Lose that job you go to liberty you go back to being this now. You're back at liberty our now different than you ever used to be a very intentional. About the whole person and making sure that i'm faithful to the privilege of being a privilege of shepherding or stewarding someone else a i've heard it said we your your parent we don't own our kids We're just supposed to be great stewart's of them and man. I just think that's my daily pursuit to make sure that our guys in their experience is something that they will remember an nba able to recall in in a in a life shaping way that That is lasting in is significant. So i think when you have that approach. You're not as indicted about the outcome. You can really invest in the process. You don't get so hung up with a with a result in whether it's win or lose. So i i think that's how i'm different just in in that. Place of emotionally spiritually healthy that again referenced earlier. I think i'm in a way better place. Obviously twenty years later you are. You know you already had your dream job. But now you got michelle and that i've given you to opportunity. What is it like to be back in the german. You know a guy who now has got to reestablish their value in terms of you know could you get a different top understanding that liberty vice giving you opportunity like what that balance You know. I don't think about it much doug just because i've moved so much now we're empty nesters and you know. I think it's different now. But man. I love where i am and i think we've got a really healthy culture. We you know. We've we've gotten to a place now where we've beaten some high majors kind of in the mid major map and you know how hard it is a scheduled when you when you arrive at that place. I just think i think for me. This is a book Read is in a book by mark. Patterson called win the day. He said we have have this ability to bury the dead yesterday's and not worry about unborn. Tomorrow's and i think when we do that we can. We can make the most of our twenty four. And that's what i'm trying to do in be present. Not only in their lives but where. I am in my own in my own age in enjoy. This process magazine is fun. What would it mean to feed oklahoma state you know. I'm you know. Mike a great dude. He's an amazing job. There they probably have the number one draft pick in the upcoming draft. What would that mean for you. Personally your program beat mississippi state a couple of years ago and it was the first term win in our schools history. That was great. We lost the next sunday to buzz. We virginia tech team so in last year we qualify but didn't have the tournament so i don't think our guys will be overwhelmed by the moment. I know you'll be rooting. Hard for your cowboys. Appreciate that not really really like mike. Ease tremendous dude In of i'm waiting for you to ask the questions about the game plan so you can text it to him but obviously when you have a player like cutting ham due to you special. If he's not one that will be two in played for fifteen years if if he stays healthy but they also have some other really good players in their the eleventh ranked team in the country. They should have been a foresee. It would mean a lot yet. You know. I do think our guys haven't won a few high major games over the years. I don't think they'll be afraid of the moment but what to do a great job in order to in order just to compete with them ever really good. I'm so happy. Pace mapping it success and those things success doesn't always mean winning games but it doesn't hurt when you do wingate and I can't. I'm just knowing year appreciative of your time. I wish you the best of what against my thank. You feel the same about you. You you've got a great platform and you use it wisely man. Thanks for all.
