"And I'm Campbell Ballentine. And this is Pod Goats radio a week in review of the hottest things in history. I said it is I like that description of his things in history and dig which includes coming. I'm just a moment. I'll tell you where the term Jerry Mandarin King from and I believe you're going first segment first. Oh, my gosh. You know what happened on February 7th of 18 93. This is what they claim now. I don't I don't know. That is true. I couldn't tell you. Vanderbilt University, claims that it participate in the first organized intercollegiate basketball game. Why? How did they know that they were the first? Well, that's what they said. See basketball? It only been invented by nays. Myth, like a couple of years before. Yeah, I was just being played in gymnasiums. Right? Exactly. So the game was it the Nashville Y M C. A gymnasium. Invented. They played the Why What? How is this an intercollegiate basketball when there's only one college and what she had no kid, but they beat the Why 93, which is about like what they're doing now, so, But here's the interesting part of this whole basketball thing you know, used to be. There were peach baskets. This is where names but no. Yeah, so you have to have a ladder. He put him up by about 10 ft High, and that's so that the offense and defense didn't hurt each other under the basket, like running into the basket or whatever. Because he was tasked with things was he was in Springfield, Massachusetts. He was tasked with coming up with a game that the people could play. The men could play indoors in the off season to keep them fit. And so he came up with basketball, and he came up with the rules and everything and wrote it all out and said You were gonna have a basket of this and we'll see you have to have a ladder because you would throw in the use soccer balls. Whoa! That's really used. There were no basketballs, obviously, because there was nothing, nothing. Nothing. Didn't take him a while to figure out that they should cut a hole in the bottom of the bathroom. There. They had a letter. They go. They get it out of the basket, and they always tossed it at mid court after every play, so you can see how this took forever. That is crazy, though. I mean, think about him writing out those rules. He had no idea how big that was gonna become. No kidding. And it was just a few years later became an Olympic sport, and he was Invited to the Olympics toe witness all that stuff, too. It's just really. It's amazing this dude just at a Canadian to just sitting around lipping Canadians, man he's got. He's got time on his hand, they said. You need to come up with with some sort of a game. He comes up with best gettable pass. Capable people have their facilities with the Dan Shuman or whatever's there. Big announcer thing to Dale basketball. And you have something for February, 9th. And this should terrify you. Yeah. The legendary Russian chess grandmaster Garry Casper of Oh, yeah, he loses his first ever chess game to any guesses. Probably not one, Boris Spassky was probably to a computer. Ah, yeah. I thought you were getting too heavy with it Got Dang go. Yeah. What's it like blue something they call this robot blue, Deep blue, Deep blue, IBM chess playing computer. That could be the thing. Oh, my goodness, E can't. I mean I got a chest? No, I'm not. I'm horrible at chess. You remember we wrote without whose friend it was with you. You always kicking my family when I was like, seven. Well, that's when you were like, seven say I couldn't beat you now. Went over there. This is some guys that you guys went to school with, but they were on. They started the chess team team are there on the chess team or whatever. So I sat down with his kid, He says, Mr Valentine, your play me and chance on. I said, Sure, kid, And so I mean, I don't know how old he is. He's probably 13. In two moves to do beach. You want to play again? Isn't nothing. Yeah, There's a big l, my man. All right. Well, tell me about Jerry Man Goring. Well, it's interesting because a lot of people thought that the term Jerry Mandarin Came from Seinfeld. No jury? No. They think it came from Jerry rigged. You ever heard Jerry rigged? I kind of would think that too Well, Jerry rig actually came from jury rig, but people thought the Jerry rig came from The slang term against the Germans called Jerry's with the British. But the term Jerry rig and jury rig Really predates all of that, as far as World War one or World War two. Really. What's interesting is that jury is a nautical term and it means makeshift Like, Take what you've got and make something out of it. So when you jury rig something on a boat, you're taking what you can find on the boat and you're making something out of it. So, like captain Bob had to do on our boat. We were bringing him. Yeah, like MacGyver Exactly. Like I'm a guy everything so it has nothing to do with the Germans. And so people just assume when you went from Jerry rigging to Jerry Mandarin that had something to do with the Germans, too. Has nothing to do with either one of them has nothing to do with jury rigging, Jerry rigging or anything. Jerry Mandarin is completely different. All these different jury Jerry, Jerry Mander, Jerry Jerry, but in 18 12, Massachusetts governor Elbridge Gerry. Who signs a redistricting bill where they re dishing the congressional district to get him like he wanted. And so they called that Jerry Mandarin, Uh, that's where it has nothing Do with Jerry rigging a jury rigging. It's Jerry Mandarin comes from Massachusetts Governor Jerry from a man named Jerry from a man named Jerry. That's it Moving right along February. 13th 18 66. Wow. Jesse James holds up his first bank. Wow, dealing! Yes, $15,000. Lot of money buys a lot of money from the Clay County Savings.

Dan Shuman Jesse James Boris Spassky $15,000 Garry Casper February, 9th Jerry Jerry Campbell Ballentine Jerry Mander Valentine February. 13th 18 66 MacGyver Springfield, Massachusetts Jerry Mandarin 18 12 Olympics World War one Vanderbilt University Jerry Mandarin King World War two

And when that's you know, some of the things we keep going back to goes, twist tree is one those things that I love. And it's just twist on history that you go. O m g. I can't believe that. Yeah, and you got me on the first one to know I was telling this before to some folks. I really felt sorry for you. I said, that's all he's got. And then you hit me What? It was like a double twist. And then you went, but he was beef. And what are you kidding Me? Yeah, The twister episodes are a lot of fun. They are a lot of fun. But whatever you're interested in, folks, we've got something for you over at pod goats dot com. So check out the podcast And it's wherever you confined podcast to cause run iTunes on Google play on Spotify everywhere So check that out. So Yes, Yes. And with that commercial wrapped there is on the 16th. This is entertainment. Yes. On the 16th of August, 1954. Did you know this? Yes, That's when Sports Illustrated magazine begins publishing. That's right. And I'll say this. Did it used to be about sport. Yes, it used to be a special everything about swimsuits now. Yeah, because it's the only sports Illustrated magazine have ever owned with a bikini clad well, when they started doing that, that was that was sort of a brilliant thing, But then they got pigeonholed by it. They're going, okay. They're only known as you know. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Yeah. And they had now they've done the trends the first transsexual have they don't have that issue. It was scary, because he she whatever they disease. It was really attractive. I'll get stop it. I'm gonna want to wash my eyeballs out. Oh, my God get you, but she sure doesn't look like it. Yeah. When did they start that whole swimsuit thing? I don't know if I were to guess I think in the seventies Oh, really? I thought it was pretty recently. That was within my life. No, no, no. I think was back in the seventies. Well, they know their readership, boy, do they? Well, they got a male. You know, you got sports gonna have predominately male anyway, So you got the male readership. And, you know, Hey, we put some scantly clad women with see through bathing suits on and they're really buy this. Oh, yeah. 1962 on the 16th. Ringo Starr replaces Pete Best is the Beatles drummer. Their first official concert was two days later. That's gonna be a bummer for Pete. I saw a documentary on him. He's in pretty good spirits about it. But I mean, good grief. Can you imagine? I almost was them. You're almost a beetle. Yeah, well, he was a beetle for a while. Yeah. And you could be a successful as you wanna be in the music business. I'm sure Pete Best is a great drummer. But he's not a beetle. Well, the problem was that the understanding was that Pete best The women were going gaga over him. Yes, and so you get to signs of story. His side of the story, at least people on his side or saying he was too cute, and John and Paul didn't like it, And so they wanted him out. Then you get people saying well, He was more preoccupied with being cute than actually playing the drums. And he was okay. But he wasn't good enough. I see. And so they got Ringo and then people don't Ringo and say, you know, he wasn't that good of a drummer. I thought Ringo was quite innovative and a lot of of my accident because he was a left hander playing a right handed kit. And so that's where you get a lot of the individual sounds that you get from the Beatles is because the way he played a right handed kit left handed. I have never thought about that. But half of the Beatles are left handed. Isn't that amazing? Yeah, And what percent of the population is left handed about 10% of something 10 to 15% May and we've talked about this before 1992 In the presidential election. You had George H. W. Bush. You had Bill Clinton. He had Ross Perot. Who was the The first really went a long time. Major third party candidate. All were left handed. Yeah. What's up with that aliens?

The Wonderful Wizard of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz opens at Lowe's Capitol Theater in New York. Yeah, that's big. It was huge, and I'm assuming now there was color in movies before The Wizard of Oz, right, but it was a mainstream. It starts out in that sepia town and then flashes into Keller. All at once. Well, that's what makes a really cool because then it goes in the color and you're going with this is really, really, really cool. It is, you know, one of those iconic films and they're all been all sorts of stuff written about it. And there was a movie about came always called under the rainbow. And it was about all the midgets they were. They were the extras and the Wizard of odds and all the antics they pulled on. Death it Yes, and I actually had a friend of mine. Who was an extra in that movie under the rainbow Things Start Chevy Chase. It Was he under 5. Ft. Oh, yeah, he was. Yeah. Let me tell you about this guy. Okay? I'd love to hear about it.

"We got the pot goats on pod, goats. Radio. I'm Phil Valentine. And I'm Campbell Ballentine. This segment weird and tragic. The old tightrope walk act. However you want to say yes, because some things are weird and something's your tragic and it's a tough one to balance on and you start us off this time. Yes, August 17th. 1903 Pulitzer donates $1 million to Columbia University and begins the Pulitzer Prize in American I've Got a question for You. Okay. Do you know I have specifically left out his first name? What? Paul, is it and is it politics? Poetry is Do you know what Pulitzers first name is? Joe? How do you know the old Joe Pulitzer does that that cell made up it? Does? You know Joe policy? Yeah. What's that guy's name? Joe Pulitzer. That sounds made up. It does doesn't know what it's true. Yeah, they kicked off a lasting award, and I've never won one. Well, you had no dove man. Hello. Are you planning on winning one? Some point. What about Nobel Base, bro? I'm working on that, too. And I'm working on a Nobel Prize in medicine was about to say, Did you? Are you striving for a Nobel Prize in physics as well? We think so. Yeah, sure. Cold crush theory. Isn't that a good one, huh? Yeah. That gold rush is gold Nugget theory. Whatever my folks want to hear it, please. Here we get, and I was like, yes. Uh huh. Carl Sagan and the rest of these eggheads out there who know nothing about what they're saying, and he's dead anyway, so they know nothing about what's going on. They assume he says, of all the billions and billions and billions of planets. There's no chance that we're alone and so I'm going well. This is my gold Nugget theory. And so you folks, some of you folks have heard it before so young through it, and the rest of you folks. You're in for a treat. Here's my theory. Yeah. Let's just say you're panning for gold in a stream on and you find a gold nugget and you get all excited, right? And you go. Oh, my gosh! I've struck gold. Remember it's safe for the next 10 years. You pan for gold on that same stream and you cover a period of I don't know. Ah, the distance of 20 miles or more. Do you think of that point? That your chances of getting better that you go find gold or worse, that you're gonna find gold. It's not a bad theory. Say, there you go. I think your chances are that that was one of a kind and you're not gonna find any more gold. And this is life in the universe. Right? That's right. That's that impressive, But there were there were find aliens, right? So I think that that one gold nugget is us, and I think we're all the intelligent life that's out there and the more we look. The more we just solidified the theory that we're the only ones that they may your theory you now I have a theory. That's not my theory on your first past is always your own theory. I thought was pretty brilliant. And I said I would share my physics pull my physics on Nobel Prize. OK, well, it does and then coming in and decided by your brains, the puzzle pieces of this theory yourself did I did not steal it? I arrange the puzzle pieces that other people researched. So it's kind of mine. Okay, And I'm gonna go home with the Pulitzer Prize. Nobel Nobel Prize, But here's the deal the universe people say Yeah, is 13 billion years old right now. That seems like a long time. But The universe is estimated to be around for the next 100 trillion years. Wow. So who comes up with the head of even know? Well, that's just a guess. But the idea there is Before 13 billion years into the universe's life of 100 trillion. Right then, that's 1000.5 or whatever percent of the life span of the universal were young. Therefore Maybe. Life on planet Earth is simply the first together. Another theory. Hey, like that so further down the stream. Somebody's gonna drop a gold nugget in there. Right. Bingo Up. Bang 1979 lives. Gentlemen on the 17th of August 2. Russian past your planes collide above Ukraine. 173 people killed that's ugly. Yeah, that's crazy. I was sitting out in on the front porch of the cabin here. The party goes studio the other day waiting from telling crap. No, I saw a plane in the helicopter come really close together. I don't know whether anybody reported or maybe was an optical illusion. Well, you know how the planes will fly there flying low here cause I get near the airport, relatively speaking the airport's 10 miles away, but they come in. And so this thing was coming in low in this helicopter goes across and they I mean, they were pretty close. Whoa! I mean, it didn't look like anybody took evasive maneuvers. But, you know So you got two passenger planes that collide above Ukraine, which is crazy. The fact that two planes collided. The odds of it is just crazy. It's one thing for a plane to go down. Have geese gets sucked into the engine or whatever. But for two passenger planes to run into each other mid air that's banned air traffic controlling over there. No joke. 173 people dead 1998 Monica Lewinsky scandal, U. S. President Bill Clinton admits and taped testimony. That he had an improper physical relationship with an intern and on the same day admits before the nation that he misled the people about the relationship. This is after He points his fist. You ain't never would point his finger, so he always did that thing where they say not to point your finger. But that's what they say This is, but it looks stupid. I see everybody doing this now in politics, they just they're pointing their fist. It was like they're almost shaking their fists at you. I did not have sex with that woman. Miss Lewinsky, right?

Yes, as well as a little explanation of what humans do here, and they expect some aliens to find and then they don't have a record player on the major's end of eating it, Uh, on the 21st 1911 Mona Lisa, and we've talked about this before One of the pod goats episodes is stolen from the loop by Vin Vin Senzo. Rukia, Peru JIA Yes. And then he kept it under his bed for a couple of years. Kind of weird they founded in 1913. And wasn't he like obsessed with it? Wouldn't he look at it at night? Because this kind of strange isn't But if you've ever seen the Mona Lisa Well, tell me the luv earlier. It's pretty small, so, Yeah, but it's also pretty captivating. Yeah, I guess.

"Yes, we're the pod goats and you're listening to pot guts. Radio. I'm Campbell Ballentine. And I'm Phil Valentine. And this is our week in review. This segment is called Woah. Good God, Joe. What is it Good for? Absolutely nothing, but we said you won't please Edwin Starr, who did then? Yeah, I believe you told me that little tribute. Yeah. 16th this week in history. 18 61 U. S. President Abraham Lincoln prohibits union states from trading with the Confederacy. I had never really thought about that until I read that. Yeah. So did this. Like cripple the Confederacy? Or did it cripple the union? Who did it? You know what I would say That was a thing. You know, the North was more manufacturing in the South was more agriculture and they needed each other. And that's why at the end end up sticking together. Oh, yes, saying they'll sweet. I said, you know, after we've killed, you know, half a million people we realized we need each other. Thank you. We'll surely going to marriage counseling first. My goodness, man. We'll also in the 16th 1942, British Premier Winston Chan Shal and isn't he travels back to Cairo from Moscow. And here's the reason I included this, Okay, because what the heck was Winston Churchill doing? Man? Was he just roaming the country? It is roaming across the world roaming the world. Yes, he seemed to always be in a different city Globetrotter looking for more hooch against But was he like a near it Ating guest because it didn't a bunch of people kick him out and only ran on a liquor in Cairo. So we had to get some vodka in Moscow that we went, so I guess. Yeah, He was always very irritating. And people did kick him out. Yeah, I think he overstayed his welcome. Yeah, we'll let you go. Where you gonna go? The 19th 1941, Germany invades the Soviet Union. Bad mistake on their part. No kid. That's what lost them. The war. You know, Jeff, you know they had been analyzed, and a lot of people are upset a lot of people in the Soviet Union. Lot of the Khamis rubs that when Stalin you know, buddy buddy with Hitler, and then all of a sudden, Hitler stabs him in the back, invades the silvery union boom game on And you know for people who younger they don't realize that we were allies with this over Union World War two and, of course, became adversaries. After that we were adversaries before then adversaries after we went back to No hating each other because the cold War where there were communists, for crying out loud, you supposedly Communist, But the interesting part is they were aligned with Germany and had they that Lie in state in place world will be completely different place. Yeah, no kidding. Because they would have divvied up ever They would have one. There's no doubt and they would have divvied up everything. You think they'd be running the world right now. Probably. And we would still have the Soviet Union and the Nazis in Germany. Would that be scaring though we'd be speaking Russian or German or both? Yes, exactly. We be goose stepping. I know that Lord man. Well on the 20th 1940 going back to Churchill. Yes, anything, he says. This of the Royal Air Force and what a quote it is. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to Sofia is one of those favor. Famous quotes isn't bring a tear to your eye. It does to a glass eye. Yeah, Be big. If you report of the year for it would be, wouldn't it? Yes, the R A F. 1968 on the 20th. During the night 250,000 Soviet and Warsaw Pact troops invade Czechoslovakia in response to the Prague Spring. Yeah, this is very bloody. So I was over in Prague and actually, I'd set this up beforehand, I said. Want to tour a radio station while I'm in the Czech Republic. Eliza, I just thought, you know they were behind the Iron Curtain. Now I just want to see some of their history. What? It was really cool because it would do I end up setting up an interview, which was essentially public radio for Prague of the time, and they had an exhibit going on at the time about the Prague spring. MM. And the invasion that was going on by the Soviet Union. And it was quite interesting in the young lady who took me on the tour was detailed about everything. They had pictures. They had artifacts at all sorts of stuff. Come back. That was quite interesting. Yeah, This is a rough period of history for Eastern Europe. Yes, And they and then you know, of course, from the sixties on into the nineties really wouldn't get that much better for him. Just got worse. But now we're healing. Hopefully, Yes, but any hill I'm gonna flash it way back. Please don't August 22nd. 17 75. Yes, King George gets on the horn with everybody in Great Britain and says, I've got a proclamation to make the colonies. Are in open rebellion. And we were saying you think this is open rebellion? You wait, pal. They got something for you. Bring your red coats over here. We got something for you. There's it in open rebellion. These people and they were our own country there. George Vago, George. Thank you. August 22nd 18 49 the first air raid in history. Austria. Launches a pilotless balloon against Venice once again and balloons I've forgotten that one was even on there were weapons with the balloon a balloon theme going today. I'm really freaking out. So you could imagine this. It is a pilotless balloon. So I don't even know how this I mean. How do they Did they drop the bomb? That's a good question. You have no idea. Maybe it's time to just I don't know drops on its own. I have no idea. They probably come up with something clever. And But we told you this in World War one when, when airplanes first are being used to bomb things. The guy's reaction there. You can see pictures of them. They're just throwing the bombs. It's like water balloons, but Well, it's so funny. Speaking of war Yes. Which is the whole segment 18 64 the very first Geneva Convention. 18 64. Yeah. And where did that take place? Geneva? Yes, yeah. And it was this was for wounded and armies in the field. The one they want. They want to pay people back for this in moderation, so This was signed by 12 nations and they had subsequent Geneva Conventions. And that's why people sometimes get this wrong. They say This violates the Geneva Convention is the Geneva Conventions. Ah, it's plural. You say this violates the Geneva Conventions. I see because there were several You know all the way leading up in the World War two. They still take place today? I don't think so. I don't know. They may Ah got big conventional in Geneva, 1944 on August 22nd Adolf Hitler orders Paris to be destroyed. Other map, but they didn't know they did not. And that's interesting. They didn't because there's a lot that they could have destroyed. I mean, the Eiffel Tower off the tree off the luv and everything in it. They did loot a lot of stuff that Nazis did from the luv and other places. But they didn't destroy the city. Yeah, and he wanted to wipe it off the map and rebuild. It is kind of a celebratory place for Germans who had come home from battle much like you know what? The Arc de Triomphe? Yeah, but this is getting late in the war. There's a 1944. So this is out of a I would assume that I don't know. The full history of this is his sounds like it's more out of desperation and probable and some of the general's heir going.

"You're listening to pot Gold's radio. I'm Phil Valentine. And I'm Campbell Ballentine. And we're doing a week in review in history. I that we are. So where are we know? I mean, I think we left off of maybe February. 18th there. So, yes, February 18th, and I've got some news from the scientific community already, there was something happen because I couldn't find anything happening on the 18th. Well, that's because you weren't looking at the scientific community, so lay it on its scientific community. Yes. February 18th 1930 30. Do you know what happened? 1930 scientific community. I don't know. I'll give you a hand. What's that big planetary discovery? Oh, my gosh. They discovered Pluto's Fluto, baby. Wow. And then they rescinded. Pluto's a planet. Yeah, kind of a bummer for blue toe. Get Buck back down the butt part private or something? I don't know. What do they make it back? Then the buck private. What does that even mean? Well, that's buck privates, the lowest in the army. So The flu tell became a planet discovered as they thought it was a planet. But it wasn't what is it like a dwarf planet or something? Yeah, this a dwarf planet. Is that politically indirect. It's a midget planet s O. They founded in 1930. Yes, Yes. Clyde Tombaugh! How? At the observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. Discovers polluted. He names it after the Greek god of the underworld. Wow, I thought he named it after that character from Disney. Come on, bro, but it's exciting. I think it's very exciting. And you know what astronomers now think. There's a planet or maybe two outside of Pluto's even further out. Really? Yes. Influencing the gravitational waves of our solar system. So why'd they give buck down to a dwarf planet? Because there were a lot of objects out their comments and whatnot. And it's really just a very large rock. Okay, so it's not really a plan it Yes. So it has to be a certain size. I guess the new plan I don't know, man. There are a lot of stipulations to beginning of plan here. There's the the Planet Society and they go out there. And I'm sorry you don't qualify. You're not heavy enough. You're big enough, but you're just not heavy enough. What do you have to rip space man? The only thing I could find on the 18th was in 18 85. Mark Twain published something that became very famous. Who could, I guess? Yes, you can. Well, It's either Tom Sawyer or Huckleberry Finn. Right? It's Huck Finn. Yeah. Really? The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I always loved that book. And I know that you did growing up yours and that's you know, I always wanted to get a raft and just go down the river. I just always thought that was cool. I know. It seems so cozy. Just got what is it about you and me? We're both about the cozy thing We like cozy travels. Gotta be cozy. It's gotta be cozy. But that was a great book. Yeah, Lot of uses of the n word. Well, I mean, it was it was, but it was done in the vernacular of the day. And if you look at it, it Zanotto racist book. I don't think no, I completely agree. It's racist to the old. It's about him running off with the slave. Yeah. So you know, we're really tiptoeing around the white. Well, I mean, we shouldn't have to tiptoe around it for crying out loud eggshells or what? We're walking on anything else happened on the 18th when you know mambo something gigantic. Like what? 1954 a new religion. It started. Really? The Church of latter note the Church of Scientology of Scientology? Yes, l Ron Hubbard, be perhaps one of the craziest human beings to ever grace the planet. Well, let me just wait here was in 1954, okay? It's interesting because what was his cyber cybernetics or whatever the client diabetics or whatever it was my mother had that book. I just got finished reading it. Really? Yeah. So is it interesting? Because I never read it? No, I feel like a complete lunatic. It was more supposed to be like she was always in the self help books, you know. Yeah, well, she was also a member of a cult way sold all our worldly belongings that way follow this girl named L. Ron Hubbard Know she read this thing like a self help. And then more came out about the Church of Scientology, and she shows us that never mind. We have diabetics on its own is not really that weird. It's when you take it in context of All of these different layers that you have to move through and levels that you achieve, and it's a never ending process. You get different bits of information as you go about through the ranks of Scientology, right, OK, and it's just insanity. It sounds like but some famous folks are are, you know Tom Cruise? Yeah. John Travolta, John Travolta. Both notoriously kind of weird guys. Yeah, you think? Yeah. Tom Cruise. What does he own Oprah Winfrey jumping up and down on the couch. I love Katie Holmes. I love Katie Holmes. But how do you differentiate them from anybody else from Hollywood? Bingo. And pretty much. They're all kind of nuts, aren't they? Yeah, they are. But about L. Ron Hubbard. They do say he is one of the most prolific If not, I think the most prolific writer of old time He really couldn't out content would not some stuff, huh? Putting out crazy nonsense. People buying it, I guess. And I've got a movie recommendation for you, Do you? Yes. If you have never seen it. The master is Joaquin Phoenix, and it is a about a church of Scientology. Sort of right, but it's very interesting the way they portray a fictional L. Ron Hubbard. Check it out. So he's the fictional L Ron Hubbard. Notice him. No, he is not really follows a fictional Well, run, huh? Interesting. What? Camp Phoenix. You know, he plays a weird guy coming back from World War two. Really? Walking plays a weird guy. Yeah. Office rocker, its worst. Role for walking Phoenix plays a crazed man. Wow. But that is scary. Now. February 19 years. Lots happened on February 19th. This is so flipping funny to me that I just cannot get over it. I was reading this put forth a shell and crying, laughing. February 19th 1914 The four year old Charlotte may pierced Orff. Yes, Why is she notable? Well, she was shelved, mailed by post from Grange Ville, Idaho to her grandparents out 73 miles away. Where was cheaper than buying her a ticket on the trains, and they mailed and this What's interesting about this is this was fairly common back then. I mean, I'm not real common. But there was one. I think she was the one or maybe somebody else like that. They put the postage stamps on her coat. But now in all fairness Back then the postal Service workers were very trusted People in the community. People knew them and they were. They usually escorted these little kids to their destination. They would put him on the train. It was like putting him on the train, but you didn't buy a ticket, so they just sat back there in the baggage car with the postal people and talked and played games and it was just a cheaper way to send them. The post office finally says, Now we see where this is going. We're going to stop this. And so their kid, they disallowed. You mailing your Children. Okay, so they didn't put her in a box with packing peanuts and paper in there, But they did have to put stamps on them so they would put stamps on their coat. Thank you. It is kind of kid. Like that? Well, well, we didn't. Look. My parents did this with me, too. What with my older brother's really? I think she did it with me, too, but they would get on the bus. And they would go to to rally or they would go toe rings were once to say, which is, you know, 23 hours away. On. They would do the same thing and not postage stamps. But you know they would have, you know, like a holding a card or something. Or they and this was very common many years ago in air travel. They would hang a sign around a kid of their destination and just my a ticket for him and put him on the plane. Whoa! And the in the airline staff would take care of him. And they would say, Oh, yeah, You're supposed to get the Denver and so they would get. So you get on this plane. Whoa. They would get scary, isn't it? That's kind of terrifying. Well, it's before we had all these creepy folks that their ducting kids, so you know..
