"Slash omnibus project cavendish's to the degree that he had any kind of awareness of other people felt like he had been treated unfairly in the water controversy and he he moved to. He decided to switch over to physics right around the mid seventy s which is when he went from being an odd eccentric living in a stable to one of the richest men in england. His father charles. Cavendish finally died leaving him. Just an insane. Fortune at the time of his death cavendish was the biggest depositor in the bank of england. I don't know on reflected. maybe that doesn't mean he was the richest man. England the only eccentric that was keeping everything at a bank one with cash investing in the investing in east india company or whatever. Yeah all those all those aristocrats. Our land rich but cash poor typically. Oh that's true yeah And he did spend he did spend the cash on real estate but mostly because he wanted more lab space. He was still cheap. He was still skimping on the mutton to guest and wearing the same old hundred year old style suits but he kept his old his old home near the british museum. Which i guess it'd be blues for which visitor said was mostly just books and scientific apparatus He bought a second home in soho which he basically turned into a lending library. That was all of his books and he would lend them out to other scientists using a card catalogue system of his own invention until that got to unwieldy and he had to hire german to run his own lending library. That's cool that's cool right like that's kind of a socially minded thing for an a poster child of asperger's to do for his community or an aristocrat of any kind. But exactly yeah at the time. So this place in. Soho becomes just a giant library. And he buys this giant house in clapham which is now kind of slightly run down part of south london but at the time was kind of out in the where he bought this giant estate and again lived in a very tiny part of it and filled everything with his apparatus as apparat i in his experiments in progress. I imagine that being being a pneumatic scientist involves a lot of glassware. I think it must yeah and today. We can just rely on getting precise glassware of every kind with the exact geometrically perfect shapes. We need all the measurements on them. Exactly right at the time. These were all have been artisanal items that he would have had to oversee the creation of very carefully to get good results and one place. You can really see that as with his most famous experiment which he performed at clapham in seventeen eighty three is kind of generally called the cavendish experiment although he did not devise it. A scientist named john mitchell who is not well known but as one of the most basically the father of seismology he he kind of first devised and propagated earthquakes might be waves moving through stone. There was a device called the torsion balance which in which suspended a rod with weights on it would spin and it was mostly used in electrical experiments to To determine electrostatic attraction between different things. You know the capacity that would pull something else toward it or something right. This john mitchell scientists had thought with a precise enough torsion balance. You can actually measure gravitation with it as well and one thing. We would have to be large also. So that's what happens. You have on a twisting rod. You have two small lead balls you know that way. Maybe a pound or two and then at different points along that radius. You have two very large you know. Three hundred pound lead balls fixed their fix. And the whole thing is calibrated precisely enough that if you could let it spin and if you could observe with no other with your own observations not getting in the way of it that the actual newton's second loss at this point that objects would attract each other relative to the square of their distance. Apart you could based on that actually watched the small lead balls twist the rod toward the larger ones and by doing so you could measure gravity even though you know this is seven eighty. Three and people are still eating dirt. How how long did the rod to be. I've seen a picture of it. The rod is. I don't know maybe a meter or so low. I see so not. It's not some giant co's pendulum. The problem is you can't have any movement of the air including by the scientists making the observations. Right so there were vacuums present by this time right. That's a good question. Scientists have access to vacuum. I think he would have needed more. Even if you had the ability to you could definitely put a candle in a under a bell jar. you know. People knew about the phenomenon of vacuum. But i don't think you could produce one on the scale needed to do this. Experiment other artists six feet. Oh okay so. It's you know the height of person and so you know this is a large set up. He doesn't even this giant house in class and he doesn't have a place where it's built shed in his garden where he can build this giant suspended tours imbalanced because what he wants to do. Nobody at the time would have thought of it is. Hey i'm measuring the universal gravitational constant what he was going to say. I am going to measure the weight of the earth because you could measure proportionally the amount to which these this ball of fix. Mass is being drawn towards these larger ones..

"Social but had figured out a way to Behind glass or on a stage you know be i mean the the most social and exposed but it did not did not convey to their to who they were and what what where. They really lived there. Just a flintstone bird on a record player. They didn't they didn't come down off the stage and going. Let's go party. Put their hood up and went. Home is so we all know shy border anywhere from like a quiet and prefers the small group of friends all the way to painfully shy. As probably as far as you could push the envelope is one of the greatest scientists of his time. Henry cavendish perhaps coincidentally right like like super far out on the wing and also one of the great. I mean when you're playing the game retroactively diagnosing different kinds of personality conditions in this case autism or aspirin or syndrome. It's always it's always difficult to do on the basis of the evidence. Yeah when you read back in his these people who are trying to decide whether or not. Thomas jefferson where he was on the autism spectrum or whatever. Because you know it's it's difficult you're judging by the standards of a different era. You have the conflicting reports of what other people said about them. Yeah you didn't actually have diagnostician doing any of this stuff. The recognition that my grandfather was probably bipolar. Explained a lot of things to my mom when i was diagnosed with bipolar We used to say when i when i admitted it we used to say melancholy. Instead of critic. Clinical depression manage depression. Yeah he he grappled with melancholy. And he did. You know that was that really characterized an aspect of her childhood and to put it into some kind of but who knows who knows what what motivated melancholy makes. It seem like a mood. It's almost like a chosen vibe. Rather than our current language which correctly identifies it as just a a neuro chemical physiological thing. Or it's one of the humor's right. He had too much too much yellow. Bile which is the which is the humor of melancholy lamb. It's phlegm fla mattock too much. Flan these guys ever thought of blow in there. No so thing. Is i identify as fla matic and and i don't like it. I don't like to be flamy. But i just i mean you can hear it in my voice. I mean none of the humor. Sound good right. That's true i mean. Is it good to have too much slack. I'll hey good news. You have too much yellow bile but this is a case where the rettig died retroactive diagnoses. Like those of some other scientists as you were saying. It's not a coincidence. Often it's the greatest thinkers who You know the fact that they were thinking outside the box and not a typical person of their time is reflected in their. It'll act as well and they're their psyche oliver sacks of men who missed his wife for hat fame seems relatively confident that The honorable henry cabinets was textbook autistic and His behavior makes it very cronies. Not you know. People say that. About isaac newton a lot of these people that just had difficulties with relationships and yet were just expanding the boundaries of of human knowledge. Right cavendish was this by the way. This is a request of our rockets nasa friend. Neil that we spoke to recently. Oh yeah neil. A very accomplished showman. He loves that he works on what ground telemetry for weather satellites. He said right but also he's thinking of getting out of it in order to get into indie film yeah he's he's artistic But but but Currently works for nasa. On behalf of noah know is not allowed to do its own rockets anymore because they have been very naughty although they tried. That was the best part of the story. Noah had its own rocket program for a while and couldn't make it work. I wonder why it went so badly that now. Congress makes noah outsource launches to nasa anyway. Neil dr. The honorable henry cavendish has been a hero and source of a fascination for our friend. Neil and he was afraid that cavendish would not be eligible firmness because we recently covered the cavendish banana rights. Who is named for the sixth What was their rank. Earl of six county roller baron. Now what are they. They are vis count. You have too much discount. Your discount is too viscous. He was the sixth do. Is that right high. He was the sixth duke of devonshire. Oh he's big wheel and henry cavendish in fact was the grandson of the second duke of devonshire. So if i'm if my graph is right here they were first cousins twice removed. So henry cavendish proceed. Yes by by a couple generation. Banana and henry kevin dish as you can imagine. Being the grandson of the second duke of devonshire was the highest born british thinker of his time of all the intellectuals of that time he he wasn't just the leading thinker but as we will see He was far ahead of the curve. There but what was his time. And who were his peers He was born in basically eighteenth. Century is dates or seventeen thirty one to eighteen ten so all the great british scientists of that time robert boyle james watt the royal society and his dad in fact age of enlightenment enlightenment era and his dad. Charles cavendish was a leading physicist of his generation. And so even though. He's born and aristocrat. I mean he's born in niece to aristocratic parents. How was his father ennobled. he i do. His father was the second do his father. William cavendish the first two devonshire as you would expect for the timeframe you can probably do the math. Glorious revolution sure. He came back the big comeback. Yes combat whig politician from the house of commons. Oh but his father was the earl of devonshire so he was already from a noble family but he it was got elevate. Yeah it was his part in Inviting william to depose these stewart's that got him his dukedom the word upn them duke orig- so he co cabinets came from a super wealthy family however he did not see much of it through a combination of his parents or his dad's thriftiness and his own eccentricity he spent most of his life living what is sometimes claimed to be a pretty impoverished lifestyle. He always wore the same kind of the suit that his grandparents would have worn. I think is what is often what is often said. Yeah but isn't this. Just the shabby chic of the super-rich drive the same vo. Two forty for fifteen years. I don't know if they had that. Then i feel like the rich van really wanted to look rich Do you think they had shabby chic. That's an that's a modern innovation of mass manufacturing. Making it possible for anybody to have crazy. Made vietnam bling. Well it does feel though that this was also the era of the of creating sort of a an idyllic village folly on the back forty of your city movement. Maybe not well sure. I mean i think it was beginning then. Kind of Taking great pleasure in in the idea of the simple the noble savage but. I don't know you're right. I don't know if that means that you would wear your great grandfather's tweeds. Yeah i kind of doubt it. It seems that seems more like hypothetical boy. Wouldn't it be great. Where deer skins that live in the woods. You know what you could actually do that. Your your lordship. Oh wow. i'm not sure about that. Live in a shack on the on the pond. But when you look at what. His actual allowance was he was getting five hundred pounds a year. That's a lot so despite the fact that people are saying he. He always wore the same deeply out of fashion suit and lived in these converted stables that his that his dad said he could have for an apartment. He's also getting the equivalent of fifty thousand dollars. Today yeah so. Maybe by his family standards. He's living a weirdly acetic lifestyle right but.

"A remember growing up thinking that was kind of a personality type. Yeah and as a kid. I think you're very aware of sinus. Because unless you're like the one percentile most outgoing kid you're pure shy in some ways right. You're shy of new people. Your side adults. Were you shy. I feel like i was shy of grownups. I remember hiding behind some curtains in our living room. One time my parents had friends over. And i did not want to be on display as far as my family's story agra goes. I was not shy at all. My mom said that. When i was a an infant or toddler age child i would try to meet the eyes of every person in the grocery store and if one of them would meet my eyes i would bat my eyelashes and try to get them to come over and a young bill. Clinton tickle me under the chance to albertsons to all. The moms always loved grownups. I think if if there's any place. I was shy. It was with other kids in the sense of like a group of kids playing over there. I have no idea how to approach them how to behave. Yeah i feel like when we talk about the tr- just the foundational traumas of childhood. We always focus too much on the family like it really is just the terror of what some other kid on the playground might do. Yeah he might. Just what if you just said something mean earn. Knock you over for no reason to. That's more dangerous than almost for most of us than anything. That could happen at home. So i think a lot of people. That's the those are the foundational child experience. I didn't relate to other little boys. I would go try and talk to them and i don't know if you remember all the way back to where your son was a little boy. Little boys don't wanna talk. They want to do something truck noises. They wanna hit you. Knock you down so i would go try and talk to them and i was never successful until i figured out that the girls were my friends. Yeah it's a lot that's a lot easier. Its own kind of terror to that continues to govern my life. I just feel like shyness. Now i think of it as a symptom. It could be any number of things like my daughter has. She was always a super outgoing kid. That would just march up to any little any little kid on the playground and they'd be best friends in five minutes and then she'd cry on the car on the way home because she'd never see them again but she kind of has a real anxiety about dealing with adults to the point like she doesn't want to order restaurants. She's like you order for me. I don't want to have to choose. And i don't want to talk to the server you know. He's pretty good with us. Oh yeah like you know with. She's if anything. She's overconfident with people she knows. Yeah but there's that or there's just kind of an introver- introvert kind of personality. We you and i both have this degree where we can work a room. But that's not how we recharge. Yeah that's right. Well i feel like these days or at least in the last ten years. Shyness has become almost a political designation. Right there are people who are adults and identify as as super shy and that dictates how they live their lives who their friends okay with the extroverts have rammed the culture for so long. I think it's okay to have them be the ones for a change in that everybody online just jumping to be the first run to announce you know what i'm actually wait for it. An introvert a. Who would have guessed that you didn't see that county extroverts so there's the end and there's just varying places on severe. Maybe what our parents would have thought of as severe shyness. We now would diagnosis different locations on a spectrum of of of autism similar behaviors where there's actually something neurologically different about the way the person handles sociality and social cues right. I mean it's there is such a thing as a librarian. Someone has to sit in a quiet room. Far i've said this before. But when i worked in tech i was surrounded by people who had chosen a job where they would never have to see anyone. Yeah least of all a user of the thing they're working on you know what's interesting. Is that some of the most introverted people. I know who formerly worked in offices before the pandemic in conversation with them. I've always kind of open with boy. You must love the pandemic because you don't have to deal with people anymore and i've heard multiple very shy. Introverted people say actually. I had plenty of solitude before because i made sure of it. My work life was the only place i interacted with people. And i miss it right there. Ideal was not zero interaction. They had cleverly managed the kind of interaction they wanted. Yeah and then and now the virus that little bit of like standing next to the microwave in the employee break room. It was enough to interacting with colleagues. Because i've been very lucky to have the pandemic privilege of just to live with some people. I like right and that kind of blunts it because they were most of the people i would see on a normal day you know. Can you imagine. And i'm sure this is true for millions of people. They don't like their home right. They have a bad dad or a bad room. Mater very like alcoholic mother whatever or brick wall instead of view. You know they look forward to just you know decompressing for a few hours in a a bar a club or a restaurant or a bookstore. Right they have a cot in a in a in a single room occupancy hotel and this has been a night that's the place they retreat to for the least amount of time possible and then this yeah. I do feel lucky about about that. Do you know people who are maybe performative. Or bordering on exhibitionist in some professional field. That are kind of painfully shy in person. Oh a lot yeah. That's not uncommon. Not at all in the early day in the you know back when rock and roll was a very different thing you know. Rock musicians and sex workers had a lot of overlap. Socially and i knew a lot of women in their twenties that were making a living performative lee. As as you know dancers or or other kind of burlesque performers and a lot of them were not especially social but had figured out a way to Behind glass or on a stage you know be i mean the the most social.

"Personal assistant and valuable to today's a bit more matter than not because this just for amazon sellers so much as people who are sellers and have of course develops a huge amount of skill sets and experience over that time and opportunity. Wanted to monetize that by Well an agency or indeed any other ways so john. Welcome to the show is going to be an interesting discussion. Thanks for having me back. Thank you and we're talking about. Monetize your skillset other than i guess. Selling e commerce based products. This is obviously something. You've got experience. Now you started your agency wada. Get tell us a bit about that jenny. What what even got to the point where the wanted to start an agency. Why bother why not. Just keep selling products forever. That's a good question. And i don't think we have a it's about this so this is actually. My friend was telling me for a while you start agency and i was like no. I don't wanna stun agency stress slow hassle. And then i went to tony robbins event and the whole thing of tony robbins was figuring out what you want to do. And how to impact more people on one thing. He said wasn't a business event i went to at the time. Was the you make more money and more income through inviting people. And i was thinking. Oh that's the sounds. Good actually with an agency. I could do the. I could impede more people through the customers but also through the agency through the business owners. Were working with the brand owners. So that's when. I kind of came up with the idea actually in australia at this time with my we came up with names. The my original agency Dna and then from the every kind of launched basically after this tiny. I think we actually closed our client during the times because we happen to have a lead at that time so yeah pretty pretty fun experience. And that's how i got into it because it full that i was kind of sick of the amazon space. I've been doing it for the is and i didn't feel i was adding value like with the product i was selling at the time. They went daily special. They were kind of private label products. Which started out back in two thousand fourteen so interesting. I love that i'm by the gushes. Be being a massive action taker. That reminds you've was he. I say sales and marketing coach for. Nlp people love life coaches and stuff and he was obviously an l. p. is convinced that he was massively. It's teddy robbins. He's one of the biggest publicizes ano- paean junk grind is worth specifically brinda grind. So like you you had to have these webinars or seminars or in this case big of events and then in the hotel room in the evening off the event actually getting ahead on with creating business so you that you're after his kind of style. I really really like the fact that you've got the hat on with Closing first client when you. Then we talked about this before this conversation. Where we're having sort of compensation the doesn't tend to be out there so much in the podcast. Fear that i've come across which is people who running amazon base agencies talking about that that business. I'm like you. I can also relate to the feeling that didn't feel great about the value. Is private label products amazon equally. I the impact. I can see. For example. running. The moss months for me is my big thing that gradually emerge out my needs. Actually it wasn't a big moment. Like he had. But the fact that i can see the impact some having on people's lives in something in a way that i care about particularly care about sending people beautiful products and some people really do i think that's we get. I love the fact that i could see like somebody set for example. This is a simple one of the members..

I wonder if If it will be part of like foodie culture that we start to develop tastes for other kinds of plantations and purple purple mealy ones. I wonder how long it'll be because right. Now you're the banana is your. It's really your platonic ideal of a yellow thing you know like it's velvet underground records and the look of the banana is so important to its brand and to this day. When you tell somebody drawn apple they will they will drop because they have a terrible terrible oliver sacks nerve ailment. Wait a minute. Is this one of those things where i think it's a banana. But it's really an apple. Whole time they will draw a red delicious. You know what i'm saying like if you're playing pictionary until somebody apple they will draw a bright red thing with kind of the bulbs the to bulbs of red delicious you know. Even though we don't even know one would eat anything that looked like that. Like how long before somebody just draws fuji you know And maybe it's the same thing with bananas. Maybe somebody listening to this episode in a thousand years thinks of bananas. A purple spiky oblong right. They think it's crazy that we ever used to eat these weird big yellow string beans. Maybe all bananas will look like that That peeled banana regime that thanks lori Banana meam what are you looking to see. If you still have appealed banana sitting front of you do have appeal here.

"Sixty five. my grandpa's banana. Well i'm not gonna say your grandpa showed me his banana. But everybody's grandpa had the same behavior before nine hundred sixty five when you went to. What's a good sixties era grocery store the amp went to weekly piggly. When you were to the piggly-wiggly except that's just regional. That's a modern grocery store. If you live in alabama the trade well let's call it the save. Well anyway you went to your. You went to your nineteen fifties or sixties grocer. You would get the grow show which actually tasted better than the cavendish banana and had a thicker skin so it hold up really well to shipping. Now wait a minute. Wait for cavendish. Bananas have been proliferating around the world since the nineteen th century. Why were we eating. Gro- michelle's as late as the fifty. They're better everybody. Everybody knew that they could grow a cavendish. They had it in their back pocket but all the the standard fruit company in the united fruit company. They all were around. I mean that's one thing about the history of bananas is a you know the reason why we still have saved banana. Republic to refer to a certain kind of developing world nation is because of us interference in these little countries that we only cared about because massive conglomerates had financial interests. There right so we would. Just install the honduran dictator of choice. Who would keep the bananas flowing. Every time you eat a banana you are complicit in cia destabilizing of the of the of central america still. Yeah there's no sundown clause on that. I mean the thing is are you. Are you complicit in slavery sitting in america. Today you could argue yes. I guess that's true. I mean it really makes me not wanna wear cotton shirts for example. That's the problem idea of leather shoes on your part of the problem but the reason why we don't either grow michelle anymore is because they all died starting around eighteen ninety Fungus called a fusarium fungus called tr. One which is just you know. I think tropical race one. It's just how scientists designated this. Oh i thought it was a human cyborg that came back through through a time portal and killed all the bananas t. One thousand came through and killed the tr one side and this caused what was called the panama disease. Just this terrible blight where Whole plantations died as soon as it got in the soil it was done for and and the the plantation owners weren't worried because they had plan. B they had kevin cavendish banana in their back pocket. Or maybe they were just happy to see me out. But so between between nineteen forty and nineteen sixty all the big fruit companies standard fruit united for and by the way these companies are still around. We think of these. 'as cia fronton relics. They changed their name to dole and chiquita. That right are those are the same company. No no idea. It's got a cute dancer. Now that is the united for. They changed the name of air america to something else to like. Is it just called united airlines now. They made air america that That short live liberal. Talk radio station with jimmy garoppolo and that was worse than anything. America had done so its own vietnam so by nineteen sixty. Five dole had switched to their backup banana. And we've been eating nothing but cavendish bananas for the last fifty years now is the grow michelle gone from the world or are there. Are there little pockets of them. Still available. I think you could still. Yeah no i think cultivars were saved. Still grow grow michelle. You just can't do it at scale because there's no way to wants. This stuff is in the soil. Lives there forever. it's totally pesticide. Proof well and it just it just chokes out the planet. It moves up through the roots and just keeps the plant from absorbing any water or nutrients. It's a matter of months it's gone. It's a kind of of salting of the earth that soil for anything ever again. What you're not. You can't grow wheat there. You can't grow dope there. Your kids can make mud pies. Grow dope pretty much anywhere. I'm guessing there are plants. That are more resilient than grow michelle right because this was the tr. One was specific to grab a mic. Cavendish banana was immune to it so they could use these plantations still for bananas. They didn't have to divest themselves of all their land. They just had to switch to a slightly less tasty banana. And so that's why we've been eating the cabin dish for the last fifty years. I feel like this is the work of god. God did not want us eating delicious banana. God was like these bananas are two tasty and people have to suffer a little privation here. It's too it's too sensual. Pleasure shas creamy banana imposed hair. That's why these green these green pasty ones. I don't feel like i deserve nice things. They're not as they're not as they're not as luscious takes right. yeah except they. They're still. I mean they're harder and they're hard cylindrical things. So maybe that's worse. Maybe that sensual. In a different way they're kind of the The starched buttoned down short sleeved shirt with a pocket protector in of fruit. That's why the cia was so into protecting bananas. Totally their ethos. So i thought you meant that god would just be against installing right wing dictatorships and one hundred percent down with those. Let's get them out so the story would end there with everybody leading cabinets bananas except that around. Nineteen ninety plant. Pathologist in florida started seeing under their microscopes a new little fusarium fungus tr to ooh. It's even worse it's four. Tr four two three. Oh bad they skipped tr to tr. Four are two and three are like what the the operating systems you never used the unsuccessful.

"You know unless you're at some little market in cambodia. We'll be cabinets bananas which makeup essentially all of the world's export bananas and the northern hemisphere now has an appetite for tens of billions of bananas every year. What are people doing with all these bananas. What will i hope. They're eating them. Not doing weird. Richard gere things with the thing is i love banana. Bread for instance. And i don't get anywhere near as much of it as i want. Are you saying. I need to make you banana bread if you would you muffins you bring muffins at which are which feel very banana bread like but i love bananas. We eat about six of them a week here. If fewer bananas they start to turn brown and then black and then you can say oh. I'll put these in the freezer and make banana bread out of them. And then you never will. I have some black bananas in the freezer. I will never do anything with them except they just take up in the freezer. That's seems like something seems like a john problem. Seems like something you need to work on. Not a problem. Lower bananas that i need to bring you. I don't need to bring you banana bread. You've got all the makings not saying. You need to bring me banana bread. You can come over here and make it so people are i mean peop- the convenience of them means we feel like even though they're not from our part of the world we now feel entitled to the supply chain by we. I mean just like western cold weather people all fifty two weeks of the year two. I want access to cheap an anc. You southern hemisphere purdue day peru and it seems like this must be a very stable supply chain just because every time you go to the store. there's countless bananas. they never run out in fact. It is very precarious supply chain and it depends on because it's a monoculture or for other reasons well because of the just the sheer volume of bananas that the northern hemisphere ones we are really stretching the demands of what the environment and the shipping chains shipping routes can deliver to us and so we need efficiencies and one of those efficiencies is essentially a monoculture. The cavendish banana is perfect for a world. That needs a ton of bananas. Because it's you know it's the perfect banana to grow in a lot of ways even though it kind of has if you've ever tried one of these other artisanal bananas has a bland taste. You know. there have been anna's that taste like ice cream their bananas that are weird colors and yet. We're kinda eating these boring ones for a few reasons. First of all the plants tend to be short but fruitful and short is good because it's hard to harvest nana's year exactly. You need fewer ladders end or shorter workers. Also a lot of these bananas grow in stormy. Parts of the world and shorter trees are more hurricane resistant. Right they're easy to spray pesticides or super important to keep the the northern hemisphere in fifty billion bananas every year or whatever it is so you want trees that are low enough you can spray the measly. The cabinets produces a ton of bananas per plant. And it's also a weird genetic. Oddity the cabinet bananas sterile. It has three copies of each chromosome so the only way it can reproduce clones. Kind of like your hands and chicks. I guess and i guess that means it really scales. Well it's a super predictable plant. You know exactly how many you're going to get off of each tree. You know exactly how long it's gonna get to grow a new tree from that Cutting you know how exactly how long they're gonna take to ripen in a shipping bananas. Do thing where they're ripening is contagious. Banana ripens sprays. A bunch of ethene. I do feel that way. And i feel like it is contagious to other fruits as well. If you put a banana in with with your other fruits it will cause them to ripen faster. I think that might be true. Because i think i think it's not the only species that uses ethene as a signal so bananas. I'll sometimes put into the refrigerator to like slow. Their role yes. They're like the momentum of Of fruits in what way because you never unpeeled them and see their face their clones and covered with Mandalorian steel and They called the things to ripen share. Well he's doing he's ripening whole show. So uniformity of a monoculture just makes bananas in in that scale both workable and profitable. Which you couldn't do if you were grown these little weird purple things that taste amazing but have you ever had make it back to antero wherever they're going in all your travels because i know you lived in central america for a while. Have you ever had a. I never lived in central. I know that you lived in peru and colombia shipped arms to the contras for years flying. A flying a dc. Three in a hawaiian shirt with sunglasses and a chair route. That's exactly right. Have you ever had. A tree ripened banana. I don't know if i you know. My love of kind of green bananas means that. When i when i'm in one of these exotic places and i see these beautiful purple bananas sitting in under a shady tree by a guy who's also selling guavas man. I got to try. That just guava even though it tastes like ice cream. What do you tried one of these amazing bananas. Yeah i mean all at a certain point. They seem less like bananas and more like a potato almost tasty but but they're not imagine that a lot of these would be goo peer well leading. We're getting firmer bananas here because hold up in shipping. They are but i think of potatoes as gupta. I don't like potato. So i mean it's not like eating a potato like an apple where it's like crunchy. It's like a it's like a mushy plantings. Like if i get a cuban sandwich. I love to have some some nice starchy potato. He bananas for whatever reason although bananas are pure starch. when. I look at cavendish banana. Don't think of it as starchy. I think of it as sweet. It is sweet and then there are but but the bigger the purple or bananas. I just i don't know i feel the starch more. It's more like a breadfruit. Even yeah even though the taste is even though the taste is i guess i guess better so we talked about. The skin of the of the cabinet. Actually has a thinner skin than the your your grandpa's banana. Which was the grow. Michelle before nine hundred. Sixty five. my grandpa's banana. Well i'm not gonna say your grandpa showed me his banana. But everybody's grandpa had the same behavior before nine hundred sixty five.

He liked back then. The vote was for tropical things that had been brought back so he built a big glass his chatsworth home. Outside of the darbyshire outside of london it was actually the model for the crystal palo. Later built in hyde parker wonder so this was the era of the hothouse right. We talked about this in the in fern. Fever and you've ever been to q. Gardens outside of london that was actually his project he wanted. A botanical garden had the the vast variety of plants to be found in the empire including these huge hothouses that are full of gin genus. Ferns and Coffee and amazing tropical blooms that you can still see cute. This is why we can't tax the rich because they will not give us giant hot houses full of who's lobbying who's going to build q. Gardens the revolutionary. People's party. If i wanna see a pineapple growing in situ right why i could fly tonga but if we have the rich i can just visit one of their houses on the one day a year. They allow public enter. Thank you in eighteen thirty four. The duke happened to receive as a gift from a chaplain friend who had been dean mauritius stationed in mauritius banana tree. Hough and we're going to get letters with been. Entry is not a tree called eggert. it's called a tree agriculturally. A banana tree is not a trade in bananas. Not a banana. It's not a tree at all. It's a fruit bananas berry and it's not true because it's not woody. it's huge. It's a succulent stems herb. Oh nice bananas era garden. Accept that you only want. Parsley could have bananas in europe garden. That's a little that a euphemism for you to participate third just right under the friend. Hey hey you up. I wanna i wanna bring some bananas to your herb garden and so it looks like a tree. Because it's the. I think the biggest urban. It's the tallest succulent plant. There is But now it's an herb. That produces a berry. Is that true of any other herbs. Now i think herb is a general. I mean we say the culinary herbs. It's yes it's herbaceous in that it's got a succulent stems. Which just means squishy and full of liquid and not right now woody. I grow succulents actually in my garden i love succulents. They're hard to kill. Which is what i like about. That's what i like to. What are these once a month and every day. Send up some weird prehistoric shoe. Got the hen and chicks. Yeah of course yeah. I don't like those actually gets all your hand like do not we do not need your rinses erecting from my yard but then then i rocker them. The chicks proliferate. I do love when the checks come out but i just don't think tricks come out the hinge. It brings all the chicks to the yard. But i just don't want to be fertilizing her own chicks in the way they seem to do. it's a little graphic. I want a good succulent garden. Where i don't have to see things pollinate themselves so from this one. Plant that kevin. It was called the cavendish banana because some martius visitor from the indian ocean brought is hot houses where it proliferated and from thence it moved on to the canary islands and from there to the caribbean to africa from africa. It spread data gas car and then to southeast asia. So it's possible that this is a banana that had been to some of these places from its tropical home but it seems like in general. It came to england to the kevin dish grounds and then spread from there. Was it cavendish himself. Who was propagating these bananas on plantations or was it. Some visitor came to the house. And was like i say let me take a cutting cuttings and clippings and he didn't know he had joseph paxton the greatest horticulture listed his time on salary. So i don't know how much of the duke actually did hands on. Maybe he just walked through the orangerie once a week and said looking smashing joseph absolutely pakistan absolutely smashing. But this was the era where the where the the calling the colonialization of the world sort of produced this the initial global crop not just market but like the idea that if they could take coffee from its origin point and grow at anywhere that it was that the tropical conditions were right and there was there was enough of a of an international sort of marketplace. And that's what happened here. He just wasn't kevin dish. Doing it was other plantation owners realizing. Hey let's i've got. Let me clear some land in borneo burma or whatever and we'll try these here and monsanto really got ahead of that in contemporary times because they copyrighted all their old their genetic genetically modified corn and. What a huge part of the story of the cabinet banana because right now in the northern so i said essentially all bananas you will see at the store..

"Only forty forty seven percent of bananas produced in the roller cabinet but ninety nine percent of the ones that get exported are cabbage. Having dish. sounds like such a like a foil for scrooge mcduck it just feels like Like a rich people not sound like a rich british man. It does because it is in fact named after an extremely rich british. The kevin dishes boy. No i should swallow home. This chewing is a real. We're going to get letters. We should put a trigger alert at the beginning. We're happy letters all the people do they like chewing. I thought they just liked it. Why can't eat a banana into a microphone. One of the things they like it a lot of spin. Yeah that's what i do i eat. A banana is club. That's that's just more of the good thing than the people should just love that even more like. But it's a little louder i'm not sure that. Asmar's about quantity not quality. The cabin dishes were one of the leading families of eighteenth and nineteenth century britain They were dukes of devonshire william cavendish. Banana banana named dot is now named after was called the bachelor duke. Oh wow i wished i. That's the bachelor duke. Come on you're halfway there. Well yeah. But i mean actually. I'm about a quarter of the way there because it's hard. It's hard to describe me as a bachelor anymore. I'm living in a completely domesticated cage. You have a daughter and a cat of a daughter and a cat and a daughter's mother. And we all share a roof. While my mid century modern house undergoes what turns out to have been year remodel. A ridiculous amount of of of extra words. What a bachelor. You'll be once you're in your new d'andre back century the bachelor duke. That's what you'll be called. It sounds like a it. Sounds like a chrysler product to a little bit. Like the bachelor duke. Sounds sounds like a like a certain kind of engine. Block or like a cigarette like an early seventies cigarette batch. Come up to where the flavor is bachelor dukes. I looked up the bachelor duke. As soon as i see that. I'm like oh he's a he's gay osha fisher. Let's out william cavendish. Nice guy never married. It appears that he was not in according to the history. He was put off marriage forever by his upbringing. He was the son of the fifth duke of devonshire. Also named william kennedy's and georgina spencer. One of the most famous figures of the spencer clan that produced diana. Oh probably al. That's true it turns out. There's a movie about their lively. Scandalous marriage turns out called the duchess with cure. Nightly you love keira knightley period pieces. I do any costume drama. Where people are speaking in In received pronunciation. I'm i'm i just wanna i can watch refines. His hairline recede over the course of the movie. Somebody doesn't super cut of ray hairline receding throughout his all his movies in order now because if they actually shoot them out of secrets you can see his hairline. Go up and down. have. I seen the duchess abby. It feels like a thing i might. It's based on. It's based on the marriage of william cavendish senior georgia spencer which it turned out was full of its full of radical politics because they were abolitionists wigs right and they were probably wearing abolitionist whigs and they were also. I guess they had gambling problems lot. Lots of lively games of chance. Love it but a steady squander their fortune no as we'll see junior inherited eight enormous banana providing fortune. But they did they one of the things. They use their money on. We're just a variety of sexual perversities s in clear. These are the bachelor duke's parents yes the disease the kind of sewing and do this is the house. He grew up in that made him want to be the bachelor. do calm. because of all the key parties he had to sit through. I guess his his dad took a mistress who was also one of the georgeanne expensive one of the most famous kind of artistic women of the time she had salons with musicians and thinkers and gainsborough painted her and reynolds painted her and maybe she was on the stage but her husband despite having steak at home also carried on a like a decade long affair with lady elizabeth foster but it was okay because his wife was also super hot for best foster. Oh so they turned into the most famous poly-amorous home stately home in all of england. And i have to best foster if she's inspiring all this kind of situation. Well you're not going to know from this is like she was made by teens borough. Yup they're all just gonna look like you know how they all olive gainsborough's women's i saw this basically all these ports just look like whatever people thought face looked like in seventeen seventy four know. No no no but no. I'm afraid not she. Looks like sean young. In no way out can't wait. That's i think that might be. Elizabeth kevin dish. That's her so after george. Anna's death the duke. The fifty comforted himself by marrying his longtime mistress. And then keeping another mr side. Believe he had several illegitimate children as well. She looks like she looks like she's on you except with with with a white fright wig. She's wearing a wig. How of hotties all these people are. There was an equivalent of the limousine but in some kind of what handsome carriage or a trilby hat are different kinds of what what are different kinds of carriages. Oh you're thinking of which in four. Yeah or what a what is it. It's a handsome brahm. Brahm a surrey with the fringe on top. They were in a surrey with the fringe. Lower the friends at all well. No except the fringe was her fringe. If you know this is this is peak downstairs too. So i'm sure that cavendish was also having a having it off having with all of the house maidens and whatnot. I would have to assume i don't wanna. I don't wanna stereotype the dukes of devonshire. I couldn't but this foster so as a result of this. The kind of Freewheeling free love he grew up in. I think that is part. Of what made william cavendish a bachelor dupuis way more interested in horticulture. I do not understand this because it seems to me that if you were going to if you grew up with hot weather and lace dresses and you were you. Were in an opportunity where you can have like Have a like an ongoing threesome. This seems like this seems like an advertisement for. I'm not saying he was ace. I mean maybe he was skeptical of marriage. Maybe he also you know moved through every beautiful woman in darbyshire. I'm not sure. I'm certainly skeptical. Skeptical of mary. I mean he was one of the most powerful men in england at the time so that would definitely given what i know about modern politicians and power and potassium and and episode lines. Like i'm sure he was cutting a swath. Yeah he was on the the king's privy council. This is kinda late hanover. So george the fourth william the fourth ish. He was the lord chamberlain of the royal household. Oh which i'm sure today is just do nothing doddering old. Peer who whose dad did a favor for somebody. But i'm sure at the time. He emptied all the the bedpans oh. I'm sure i'm sure it's more like schedules. Ing schedules underwrite rattling gold chains at people personal assistant type duties But at the time he's essentially chief of staff for the leader of the free world later ambassador russia but what he really loved was gardening when his when his own. The fifth duke died he inherited eight beautiful stately homes all over the english countryside. Two hundred thousand acres of land. Where did the original fortune come from just being rich rich. Richness begets richness. Well i wanna say slavery right because it seems like. That's almost always the answer. That's the number one number one answer. How did how old white people get rich. But in fact in fact their fortune pre. They were one of the wealthiest british families. Well back to the sixteenth century. the So it's just lands and peasantry working working the land growing whatever strawberry's lawyer william kevin dish The sixteenth century courtier was chancellor of the exchequer around the exchequer out. So he's just printing money you can literally basically extort all the money you want out of yourself and he was in a position to really profit from thomas cromwell's dissolution of the monasteries. Sure they took all the gold and and beads and and And gems so instead so it's better than slavery it was. It was rich horning. Monks they're not likable right. Nobody's writing some roots.

"Gas Many folks will call boil the father of chemistry, but this point his observation mostly just consistent of it's a gas man know anything more about it? Almost a century later. Henry Cavendish, another philosopher and scientist identified hydrogen gas as a distinct element. The French chemist Antoine Lavau, gave hydrogen its name. Now, the earliest record I could find of a gas balloon that used hydrogen as the lifting agent dates to 17 83 in Paris, but hydrogen was used for balloons and airships for decades. Until really the hidden Hindenburg disaster in 1937 that Scared people quite a bit and stopped a lot of people from using hydrogen as a lifting agent. Hydrogen gas, by the way, is extremely flammable in the presence of oxygen. So the Hindenburg caught fire as it was docking with the mooring mast and it was a massive fire. It killed 36 people, including one person on the ground. There were a lot of people who are on the Hindenburg, who survived with you. Some with severe injuries, but Still, that's a pretty awful disaster, and it was caught on film. And there was a radio presenter who was talking through the whole thing. If you've ever heard the phrase Oh, the humanity that comes from the Hindenburg disaster, and it truly was. A spectacular catastrophe that tragically killed many people. Now there are several hypotheses as to what actually started this fire, but it was definitely the hydrogen that provided the fuel for it to spread so quickly and to cause such a disaster. So disasters like the Hindenburg definitely raised huge warning flags with anything associate with hydrogen and fuel and many people's minds and it persists to this day. There are people who say Well, we don't want to invest in any sort of hydrogen approach Tio energy storage because of the possibility of another Hindenburg like disaster. Now in the 18 hundreds, A mixture with hydrogen was used as gas for street lamps. So is actually being used as a form of Ah fuel and in 18 39, Sir William Robert Grove would conduct some experiments that led to the development of hydrogen based fuel cells. So we'll talk more about fuel cells in a little bit, but first burning hydrogen gives off water vapor and some other trace by products depending on how you're burning. If you're bearing it with pure oxygen, you get water vapor. If you burn it in atmospheric conditions, you'll get some small byproducts like various nitrogen oxides. It all depends upon the composition of the air at that point, but it does not produce carbon dioxide like burning fossil fuels does so it seems like hydrogen would be a super awesome fuel source for us to go with if We could be reasonably certain that the method we're using would contain this reaction and not result in an end in a Hindenburg like disaster, But that's something we can totally do. We can do that. I mean cars are driving around using gasoline as fuel and gasoline is flammable. So why don't we just switched the hydrogen? I mean, it is the most plentiful stuff in the universe. And it burns clean now granted water vapour is a greenhouse gas. We have to accept this. But water vapor also can incorporate into the water cycle on Earth and out of all the greenhouse gases. We actually understand water vapors role in greenhouse gas is the least. But what's the hold up with hydrogen, while the big One is that most of hydrogen on earth is bound together with other stuff like water that hydrogen and oxygen? Or hydrocarbons, like the hydrocarbon is an organic compound made up of hydrogen and carbon. So if you have a carbon atom and four hydrogen atoms, you would have methane. To use pure hydrogen as fuel. You first have to find a way to shake those hydrogen atoms loose from those molecular bonds. That means to produce hydrogen gas. We first have to pour some energy into compounds that have hydrogen in them to break those molecular bonds. You got to come up with a good way to do that, so that in the end of the day, the energy stored in the hydrogen gas that you have harvested Is more than the amount of energy you used to get the gas in the first place. Otherwise you have a net loss and energy if you pour more energy into making the hydrogen gas Then you would get out of consuming the hydrogen gas. You're losing energy. We call this a bad thing? This is true for all fuels, by the way, so if it costs us more energy to get petroleum and to refine that petroleum into fuel, then the petroleum fuel itself could store we would not be using fossil fuels to begin with, Because we would be losing energy. We would instead say, Why don't we use whatever it is? We are relying upon to get the petroleum in the first place as our energy source, But that's not the case. Now we can measure the energy content of various fuels by using an apparatus that allows the fuel to burn under what's called standard.

Matter is that we name body which matter cannot be less or more than body. Yet some learned persons are of opinion that there are substances that are not material bodies but how they can prove any sort of substance to be no body I cannot tell. Neither can any of nature's parts express it because a corporal part cannot have an incorporeal perception. But as for matter, there may be degrees as more pure or less pure. But there cannot be any substances in nature that are between body and now body. Also matter cannot be figure less. Neither can matter be without parts. Likewise there cannot be matter without place nor place without matter. So that matter figure or place is but one thing. For, it is as impossible for one body to have to places. As for one place to have two bodies. Neither can there be place without body..
