"To the podcast I'm Josh Clark is Charles W. Chuck Bryant cherries in the house were back to basics yeah we're doing a social sciences episode man I mean we're all right man we get the tear it apart you you believe in body language sure watch this you're winking in shouldering and nodding your head you're doing some weird biting thing what did I say you said a feeling silly exactly what I'm saying about that yeah it's a lot of it is diet mountain dew and Pepsi okay but it does say and I miss the now I'm crashing and he's down are you doing good yeah I'm hanging on by a thread are you sure we can make it through this menu you can do this in your sleep okay don't go to sleep okay it would be so boring you could theoretically do this in your sleep yeah okay I got you yeah so body language it is a thing I yes when I was researching I was like this is junk science there's no way this is real and I could not find anything that just said like yes body languages obviously junk science apparently it's very well established and well yeah I mean I understand like like yes there is such thing as body language yeah sure you did enough in evolution yeah it's basically evidence of evolution from a animali an ancestor yeah but the idea that like you can read somebody especially like that facial coding system it just struck me as really like junkie yeah what we did I could've sworn we had done this one when I we did find a dog suppression yeah we did that and I think two thousand nine and I don't remember how I weighed in on it back then so I'm just gonna start a new yes and made it may be a different take I don't know idea people grow and change their opinions of all the ana well here's what I think of course body language is real and it can tell you a lot can tell you a lot huh but it can also Mr you can be misdirected very easily sure and I mean we'll get to it but I found some stuff from a former FBI guy even it doesn't say it's junk science but he's like it you can fool somebody to if you're a sociopath you know this about body language writer expression yeah yeah apparently it's a myth that that's how I get by the apparently it's a myth that I can not having eye contact means deception while it can his whole point is they've done studies over the years and habitual liars in anti socials and psycho pass mmhm I have the most I contact my weekly probably because there's that myth yeah exactly so it's like a self fulfilling myth yeah Ted Bundy was right like I gotta make great eye contact with everyone is looking at your soul otherwise the jig will be up right and I won't get to kill people in the longer my labor thing right and then so yeah there's a lot of myth there's that there's that one myth also where like you look up into the writer up into the left if you're lying you're recalling yeah I can't remember we don't we to bunk that and something here there awhile back yeah I think I think body language is fun to talk about and study but when you're convicting someone and as a jury right based on micro expression yes there's where the junk science comes in for me it gets a little dangerous and not just with body language who we need to do a whole episode forensics in general and just how junkie the science that most of it is based on it is basically the only thing that's that's less staining is DNA it even that can be wildly misinterpreted yeah and we're using this to like execute people there and there there's a big problem with that so I think we've arrived at my problem with it it's junk science when you apply it for like law enforcement yeah as fact yeah agreed okay so can we be done this is the only thing that got me to Elbert Massey met Robbie in I totally know that guy's name about the H. is silent meridian may radian weapons to some Arabian not met her whole Arabian right Dr Morais Behan Hey back in nineteen eighty one said that in the first four minutes of meeting someone our facial expressions account for sixty five percent of the impression we make seven percent of them person comes or actual words while the remainder of the information comes from my tone of voice yeah he does because what made me think like now this is all B. S. yeah because it sounds you can you can say that you can't you may nineteen eighty one you can get away with that crap not in two thousand fifteen of sixteen yeah you live in the past yeah meridian was he's he was probably one of the first researchers to study this in the nineteen forties out of UCLA and I agree you can't just break down percentages well I think what he really means to say if I may speak for him yes is facial expressions and tone of voice account for a lot of a lot of what you're getting out of a person and I don't think anyone would disagree with that in the words account maybe for even less than those two things combined I think people would agree with that too yeah it's when you quantify it yes Sir seven percent he just said that just because it sounds authoritative yeah because he like he fed it into the percentage three the maker three thousand and it spit it out but that is not to miss the point that communicating that inadvertently is something that we all do your body like sure yeah there is that there's a great quote I ran across a psychology today post it was it the quote comes from a sixteenth century Scottish mathematician named John Napier he said if language was given to men to conceal their you found it too high it's a good one it's about as good a quart of body languages you can come up with you do it Chuck now you your ID Huntley letter sixteenth century Scottish government isn't that way I'm not do you Sean Connery reading this I think that if language was given to men and shield their faults then gestures purpose was to disclose them that's perfect not bad it was a dead on John Napier is not as good as my crystal faults so he Napier makes a pretty good point like yeah you can language has all sorts of structure in can be mastered body languages much of it is is just inadvertent and we don't even realize the surly when you're picking up on it you just get this weird gut feeling that and no I don't trust this car salesman or I want to give this car salesman all my money depending on the body language yeah and it's pretty clear that this started a long time ago like it predates language right because who wrote this by the way this is.

"I'm Josh Clark Charles W. Chuck Bryant your own role the three of us together get the talking yes you have afternoon tea I am having I see that yeah it's what's that other stuff with the passion fruit in a you know my biscuits and everything I think that's the Taza passion for type discussed the is that buzz marketing yeah well buzz market for worse than T. I guess yeah maybe a local heroin dealer who puts Fenton all in it without telling you yeah I think they're going to have those Jimmy on the corner hi we should probably not talk too much about heroin though Chuck because all bets in this episode gets played in a decent amount of like middle schools yeah and I'm glad we got in a couple of jokes early on because the ghost fishing will rank alongside I could the MS show in the H. I. V. shows as the least funny things to talk about yeah it is pretty sad actually no one actually pays for humor knows like it this is really awful and sad well we'll just take our usual tack worth it if it rears its head will will jump on it and shake it around hold it up for everybody to see yeah I think that's how we do think one of the things that was most depression depression depressing to me was the I didn't know about all this and I'm like in the mid forties and I'm just learning about this well you know how we learned about you remember first hearing about this we got an email from and I feel like such a hero we got an email from a class like a group in a class I wanna say is probably a middle school class who had done a project on goes fishing and he said you know who would want to do an episode on this is Josh and Chuck so they're the ones who brought this to our attention and I cannot find the email it's gone so I'm very sorry group from class that I can no longer identify but you guys if you wrote in to tell us to do an episode about goes fishing and gave us some sources to start with you're the only ones who did so we're talking about you I think it was Mrs Bailey's oceanography class at that's right that Sherman Hemsley middle school in Round Rock Texas men that show a man was all right I never watch that are you didn't it was pretty good I mean it was just basically George Jefferson as a preacher yeah which is great yeah that was the Georgians you can watch him do anything yeah your first step for sinners garbage man Jefferson as the president George Jefferson as rescuing sea turtles for ghost fishing see some of this I don't so we should this is definitely one of the ones we should not to start talking about without defining it first most people don't know it goes fishing yeah and sadly like you said before we hit record Jerry R. as as this what we're doing today and you said it goes fishing with sounds a lot cooler than it is yeah I when I when you send it over us like who goes fishing hooks that sounds really neat but it's no there's no need about now now but it does have a cool name agreed yeah technically the definition is called abandoned lost or discarded fishing gear yep A. L. D. E. F. G. and what this is is professional commercial fishing gear and I'm sure there's a small amount of recreational fishing here but that's not the real issue sure but commercial fishing gear that is been left out to see that then goes on to just kill and maim sealife for hundreds of years yeah it's it's awful yeah and it's a real really big problem like just to give one example it will kind of go around the world a little bit later but just in the northeast Atlantic there they they found in one fishery so if you if you look at it and see the entire sees going to have like different fisheries different areas where they're like lots of fish typically yes in just one of those little spots in one city in the world they found something like twenty five thousand nets this is what they estimated that twenty five thousand nets totaling about twelve hundred and fifty kilometers in length that were lost every year every year someone put that in the scale right I will I will I did a little Google mapping yeah twelve hundred fifty kilometers will get you from New York to Chicago thank you yeah yeah how many big macs at like a hundred million they will get you from Brisbane to Canberra don't know where that second place is this they're both in Australia okay and then it will also get you a little under a round trip between London London and mile yeah so it's a that's a lot of netting and that's just with lost a net one fishery every year yeah we might as well just throw out a few of these because there's gonna be a lot of staggering stats the U. N. environmental program you know and the food and agriculture organization of the United Nations nations other than this a conservative estimate they said that six hundred and forty thousand tons of fishing gear left in the oceans each year yeah I did another a little bit of more googling you ready okay that that is equal to five hundred and fifty six thousand five hundred and twenty one Ford fiestas just dumped into the ocean every year by wake out Ford fiestas disallow their name I don't know I mean Ford fiesta as well selling car all around the world serving as a Ford fiesta looks like I probably couldn't pick one out on the road but sure you could too you just know intuitively that that's a Ford fiesta here's another example Washington state right here in the United States they did a little cleanup job there recently we'll get to the cleanup efforts because it is happening on the smallest scale hopefully increasing but in this one area they got they wrangled eight hundred and seventy ghost nets and that contains more than thirty two thousand marine animals yeah thirty two thousand and and this is just in one part of Washington state N. and if you say well who cares about marine animals well every day included five hundred birds and mammals yeah and we're talking like big big big males like whales this affects everything from Wales on down to little tiny fish these things are just out there floating around they get loose in one way or another and they just flow through the oceans and we can travel very very long distances yeah and along the way animals get trapped in a mummy the whole point of commercial fishing gear is to trap animals the problem is is when you when they're operating correctly there reeled in and they bring their animals with them and then people eat up and you can have issues with that or whatever but at least they're not just completely going to waste which is the problem with ghost fishing these things are like floating little islands of death the trap all manner of sea life and then they just die one way or another either very quickly depending on whether they need to breed like their marine mammal and they can't surface or their a sea turtle that that that that can't feed any longer because it's it's got a a net growing around its mouth because it stuck its head through loop when it was juvenile yeah and said what's in there that looks neat mystic my face on it and now I have and that then I grow bigger and then it stays there and potentially cut into my skin and becoming a part of me at like little turtle mothers tell their turtle babies this like don't put your head through a loop I am just like they they human mothers tell their kids don't stick your arm out of a school bus yeah same same thing I would guess here's another stat the world animal protection group estimates that getting snared in ghost gear kills about a hundred and thirty six thousand seals sea lions and large whales every year yep and and you know some of these animals are already endangered so any conservation efforts are being at the very least blunted by stunted I guess both yeah but you know these other things going on it's just right it's it's a staggering problem this dumb the plastic that they use I mean back in the day they used to actually not even that long ago nets were made of things it would biodegrade like sometimes or cotton or hemp and now you know as we quote advance unquote with synthetics they have these plastics that these things could be out there for five or six hundred years yeah and when they if they do break up the animals eat that stuff and die yeah do you remember our our great Pacific garbage patch episode from years and years ago yeah that factors in for sure yeah well I saw a lot of this stuff goes in and is attracted to that the those huge gyres out there in the ocean and we talked about in in that episode about how plastic photo degrades when it's just out there in the sun yeah the motion of ocean currents combined with the sun photo degrading it it breaks it down into smaller and smaller bits they become part of the food chain which is not good you don't want your food shade eating petroleum based plastics now and that's what commercial fishing gear is made out of which again that's why it lasts so long hundreds of years which is what you want you want something very durable and your fishing gear but when it gets loose it's a big problem and like you said it's a fairly recent problem too because it wasn't that long ago like that people were using nets that degraded a lot a lot easier yeah it says it says in here I'm not sure resource this but if you're sixty years ago so in the history of fishing this this synthetic netting is pretty new right and this isn't just like and we're gonna talk a lot about animals because that's sort of the the main problem but it's an issue to the industry to like says right here that here in the USA the estimated that one single ghost net that's lost or discarded or whatever can kill almost twenty thousand dollars worth of Dungeness crab over a ten year span yes just one that right and then there's like you can buy you could buy seven Ford fiesta I need get some comedy in there and then there are you know the small vessels swallowing even larger vessels that can get tangled the stuff they're divers that can't navigate through the stuff so there is a bit of human impact as well right.

"Yeah just click the Charles W. Chuck Bryant there's Jerry Jones can sell it everything's the stuff you should know that's right this transform a special oh really you know she loves how you doing good man but despite myself kind of relaxed okay I'm not feeling feverish if that's what you're driving at and that's not what I was driving it and yeah no I'm not you get the result now many more although I haven't for a long time like I've never been like a fever person I probably had like a handful maybe how many favors of you have I'm not a ton since I was a kid yeah not a lot of adult fevers right I mean I've had like the pop fever had rock and roll fever yellow fever I've had the fever for flavor Pringle oh man me too what are the sizzling potato chips are they they're potato crisps and those are good they're mashed together potato parts I don't think I want to know how those are made now let's like chicken McNuggets I think it unicorn just poop them out have you seen unicorn pizza it's a little much it's that there's a restaurant in New York I'm not quite sure where maybe lower east side they have unicorn pizza it's like go get a good start like a nice pastel colored frosting instead of sauce now Kong amount of cotton candy the nerds are pop rocks maybe good lord and then some other stuff supposedly taken good only to anything that has enough frosting on it I like frosting but I'm not into like sugary candies really like nerds in pop rocks and stuff that you know I did to bring stuff on some pop rocks that was interesting yeah yeah your tongue actually warms the pop rocks to the point where they melt in since they have CO two trapped inside during the manufacturing process that CO two certainly is released in a pop so it's just a little bubble of CO two yeah that's gonna be good for you I'm sure it's funny my head of remain college like not many adults eat candy like the blue chocolate and stuff like that candy bars but candy candy non adult is just a little strange and dining area if we can't make sure like what Mentos not meant mentors like candy mentors I like those well I had a roommate that would go to the convenience store next and this is college granite right but he still leads the stuff I think okay and he would go with like fifteen dollars and by you know like giant sweet tarts you know those big trouble one sure and Mike fun dip and nerves and just all kinds of candy find it remember looking made does the same thing yeah I think yeah if just like her latest that acceptance of right like I don't have a foot but I've got my liquor made oh man can you can you guys out there and podcast Landover stalling because we are big time because we happened upon a topic that no one really knows what's what yeah I mean we're talking about fever dreams we know about fevers yep cannon about dreams yeah but apparently no one's really gotten to work and figuring out what fever dreams themselves are so it's largely anecdotal yes Sir you're gonna have to bear with us I believe that we'll leave that there for now yeah but I guess a good place to start is by talking about both those things separately in starting with fevers you know you've always heard ninety eight point six Fahrenheit is the normal internal body temperature yeah you meant that it the ninety two there was a big study the set is really ninety eight point two depending on like how old you are what time of day it is doing where you if you put it in your butter in your on your armpit or in your mouth or in your ear or all my ones that the something yeah it can vary a little bit so I think there's a bit of a slight sliding scale to that number yeah for sure but I think the key is is it's going to be roughly around there and even if you have an average body temperature that's not exactly ninety point six let's say you typically tend toward ninety seven point five you run cooler yeah.

"And welcome to the podcast and Josh collectors Charles W. Chuck Bryant news Jerry over there this is stuff you should know about people who have really bad luck the nine of them yeah we can't I don't think we've ever done a tent full top ten list every now not that that should be our last episode yeah it's like stuff you should know's ten biggest regrets right that's a great idea yeah that'll be the last one Transrapid there's no we don't have ten regrets yeah I guess we can do a full time actually get pregnant within no we couldn't VidCon number one that's a big one this interest definitely up there too number two zero we're on our way all right kid how you feeling pretty good I'm great you feel lucky punk the lucky person will say that I would agree with that or good fortune huh my friends have called me the rabbit's foot over the years yep so there I was rubbing it but that's my that's a mainly for narrowly escaping trouble more than anything how about a story chocolate on us just I mean I was I was very famous among my group of friends for getting pulled over by police and not getting tickets right I mean at one point it was it it literally happened like fourteen times in a row or something over a span of like ten or twelve years okay hello it happened a lot that I never and I didn't get my first ticket till she's probably in my thirties mid thirties how did you get her what happened to talk your way out of it yeah you know what you do man and my brother always gets a ticket and he's much nicer than I am but you just got to be as humble humble humble humble humble as you can be and if you show the slightest bit of attitude than that police officer in my experience will delight in writing that ticket sure I mean even if it's if it's a sideways look and I basically just throw myself at the mercy of the court on the side of the road I'm like I'm so sorry officer I you are you should have pulled me over you did the right thing I was wrong and I'm sorry there's no excuse here's what I was going to eat the French fries but you should have come here the hero here think they're always a little disarmed in there like oh well okay well I guess I can which offer the warning not enough that's been my experience all right there's Chuck advice right there yeah so you get out of fourteen tickets so did you forget to the last the fifteenth time did you forget as you sneer call a pig what no I think it was just one of those things were like they were writing the ticket even before I had a chance to do my little song and dance and they brought me the ticket I was calling wait a minute don't you know who I am I'm the guy that gets added tickets our thing is Sam Chuck from service should not happen that means nothing that's how you that's how you get on these days but in the well we're talking today about some people who have very bad looking you know like a lot of these lists usually or just like notice went noted that on no this is wrong I think we tried to do list once where like our man I can't remember which one it was for like every single entry was just like just false right yeah that's only the case of like three of these this time which I'm pretty that's a not a bad batting average for a listicle yeah and some of these are the word like kind of bothers me sometimes because as is the case we'll go and get to the first one Ron Wayne he was one of the original three partners about apple computers that's not bad luck run Wayne made a board business decision have you that's a good point have you ever heard of runway before now had you know I have it and had I heard his name I would have been like you sounds like porn actor but he's not going after oh no that was that was another guy I can't say his real name now who I demand that you say I'll tell you off Mike okay so he turns out this guy was not a **** actor he was one of the three founders of apple and as far as I'd known to this point there are two founders of apple turns out there were three at the beginning for like the first twelve days yes so go back to nineteen seventy six and our way back machine and nerdy of little jobs a nerdy little Wozniak our young guys in their twenties and they had this great they didn't know it at the time well they may have known or suspected but this this great vision for the future but they were kind of kids and they didn't have any experience so they look to a guy named Ron when he was in his forties to come in and kind of help what they called with adult supervision mmhm because I mean they were programmers from Atari but yeah they didn't have the actual business sense or whatever and I harvest a party job at the time I believe so yeah but I'm I had no idea tari produced apple though did you yeah I I did a bunch of Atari I research stuff for my tech stuff guest spot oh okay cool yeah we did a history of Atari two parter speaking of guest spots me and let me just also give a shot a real quick sorry to interrupt this little entry but I was on our good friend Jon go forth in our new friend Brent's podcast hysteria fifty one recently nice yeah we talked about the family paradoxes for like an hour it was awesome so go check it out hysteria fifty one go check that out okay so plug out right so we're in nineteen seventy six Y. as in jobs the recruited one one Wayne run at Wayne to be the adult in the room to help with engineering documentation and it was actually Ron Wayne who who drafted the very first apple contract and said you know this is what they greet on his just make it up it would said how much everyone is gonna get he got ten percent to jobs and Wozniak forty five mmhm and he even created the first apple logo which was not the logo we know and love now it was a it was like it would cut style thing of Isaac Newton under the apple tree not that it's terrible I disagree I think it sounds ugly so rumbling though well he was very very quickly was like I don't know if this is my kind of place I thought it was a good idea like what these guys are doing but this company in a garage Steve Jobs keeps taking acid during the middle of business hours didn't really yeah LOL Steve jobs so he was pretty cool from what I understand sure I'm he Bromley was like I I don't I don't think I fit in here also apparently he was worried that he was going to have to pony up for you know whatever business debts they incurred I think that was a big deal and he was like all right I'm out I'm out yes he was an adult he was like I've got a house in like of I'm a real adult human like they're gonna turn to me certainly when they don't go so he he cashed out and in twelve days twelve days after they established their contract in the contract was kept by Ron Wayne actually we'll get to that in a second but he cast offered twenty three hundred dollars two hundred thirty thousand you say no two thousand three hundred the event which is still today worst less than like ten grand a year and he didn't even get it all at once again eight hundred right then and then he agreed to take fifteen hundred later and that was nineteen seventy six and in nineteen eighty apple in public and everybody involved became an instant millionaire and years later it hit the trillion dollar mark for valuation and all the while run Wayne got to watch this company grow and grow and grow and realize that he'd sold off ten percent of the stake in the company for twenty three hundred Bucks yeah and apparently if he had held all those stocks he'd be worth close to a hundred billion dollars so he he takes issue with that he said he probably lost out on tens of millions yeah I mean I guess it depends on what like you can't you can't go back and do it all over again like any money says right I guess there's always the thing of like well yeah but he always maintains I would've gotten out after that before the big Cassian anyway probably so I don't like to look at it is that sort of a loss is what he tells himself basically or else I would have gone totally insane a long time ago yeah but he did apparently he wrote a Facebook essay and said I probably that would have been around in nineteen eighty and gotten some pretty good change and and I think regrets it yeah he said had he known that it and everybody is going to become a millionaire in four years he definitely would've hung in there but he just is hindsight's twenty twenty you know yeah and the cherry on top here is pretty interesting though yep he said he kept that contract that very first apple contract and that he drew up and he kept it any auctioned it off in the early nineties for how much five hundred Somalians five hundred dollars mmhm and what happened not bad it was just a piece of paper he had hanging around well sure somebody turned around an auction it off years later in two thousand eleven for almost one point six million Ron Wayne now that one's bad luck when we did that with his life all right he wrote essays on Facebook no I mean nobody did okay all right yeah I guess so I mean I'm Steve Jobs okay but I doubt if you like you know got it got a low wage hourly paying job.

"charles w. chuck" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM

"Clark there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant there's Jerry over there it's two thousand seventeen your your benevolent dictator for real she's got those capitalists that she wears off and the sun glasses I was just coming out of this is a pretty good article here from howstuffworks new yeah I heard that before who wrote this one do you have that on there now I always have it on there you didn't have it today it might be is Sheena Freeman joined I think it may be that sounds familiar yeah anyway it's a good one yeah this that was that was word for word by intro that you just stole my mind reading classes have been paying off Chuck yes you ever lived under a dictatorship not exactly no no I haven't either yeah and I think we should kind of cancer cells fairly lucky sure because it turns out that not only were we born in a country that most people would argue is not a dictatorship although you can find plenty of websites that argue that it yes it is he has been for the last several years possibly even for the most part most people would say it's not a dictatorship so we're lucky to be born in a country that isn't a dictatorship but not only that we're lucky to be born in a time when dictatorships have become fairly hard to find comparatively speaking because dictatorships were basically the way that people were ruled for thousands of years now up until very recent times around the time of the enlightenment when the idea of individual liberties and the protection of those into individual liberties became kind of widespread yeah and now this article kind of starts off I thought it was that was interesting that you don't often well first of all the word dictator is just one like the one who dictates the thing it's kind of funny when you break down the actual definition yeah yeah that makes a lot of sense that it's the guy who paces back and forth in front of the desk with somebody's typing or anything take dictation yeah but they don't call themselves that very often although it has happened before we get into the history it's it's we should point out that like Castro and Saddam Hussein you never hear them say I'm dictator as a bad rap you know on the dictator Fidel Castro yeah it's like propaganda got turned into PR yeah that will call themselves premier or president or chancellor or fewer boss of you Kim Kim Jong il holds three titles and he's looking for a fourth and fifth mmhm like as we speak well he's in the ground his son oh wait I got this to confuse right yeah well he held three titles yes he did and imagine Wilson probably holds for than he probably found that fourth just made one up did you know that there's like a I I you know the Kim Jong moon is the supreme leader of North Korea but he actually technically shares power with two other officials as well they have basically triumvirate going there it was news to me yeah those guys are called keep quiet one and keep quiet to I was just looking up some of his greatest hits recently yeah and Kim Jong moon alone has already started to amass several but one was a north Korean leader a pretty high ranking official was executed with an anti aircraft machine gun for slouching or falling asleep at a at a meeting holy cow right but you're certainly imagine what that would do to a body yeah my god but you should you should take that kind of stuff with a grain of salt especially when it's coming out of North Korea because we have really virtually no idea what's going on here today over their big events like that even if it is true that that guy was executed with an anti aircraft gun whether or not it was for falling asleep during an ad right at a meeting or something like that remains to be seen yeah you're saying take any information with a grain of salt yes yes good advice thanks but as Shayna I believe Shayna points out that the dictators do have some things in common one of the big ones is is almost a hundred percent of the time a dictator doesn't come to power through it an election they're usually not freely elected to that position no but they have been they have been yeah pretty prominently like Hitler you know he was elected when he named chancellor for yes by the elected president though right but he still wasn't elected no I guess that's true five let's get into history then all right please say deck dictators got a bad because it's got a bad rap over the years right as far as calling yourself that I think so but it it officially originally and I couldn't I saw a couple references to Greece but it seems to be Rome classic room classic room it chips coming into the party and everybody's like that's a classic room he tried to walk through that screen door open so classical road how about that it seems to be an invention of classical Rome right M. there is a station called dictator there's an office basically in in ancient Rome did the leadership was held by two men called councils yeah and they were equally powerful from what I understand consuls council consul okay sure and when something went down and stuff hit the fan the Romans had a tradition of appointing one of the council's dictator yes which is basically an emergency investment of our unparalleled power into this one person in the whole thinking behind it was it when you were faced with an emergency when the state was faced with an emergency you need somebody who can basically get stuff done yeah like a single voice yeah it didn't have to go to the Senate to ask anything didn't have to go worry about making the wrong move the dictator couldn't be held the criminally liable for their decisions yeah didn't have to worry about not being invited to the other consoles Christmas party the next year right the other council wanted to be invited to the dictators Christmas part throughout it so you there was an investment of these emergency powers is one person in usually I saw one year this article says it lasted for six months and then the dictator be like well that was a wild ride I'm going back to my normal life the rebellion has been quelled or the sieges over something like that yeah and interestingly there are a few rules they couldn't be held legally responsible for their actions right big one it says couldn't be in office longer than six months although I think is I think they were there to handle the situation is kind of a long as it took yeah for the most part but there were also guys who like woo I like the feel of this here I'm not giving this up and they'll say well you have to we say in the navy said while I'm the dictator they said we hadn't thought this all the way through yeah Mr yeah they could change Roman law in the constitution they couldn't use public money unless other than what the Senate said you could use it for so they supposedly still and these are the official rules you know as we see coming up here people bet these roles and they couldn't leave Italy was the last one it's a good one and they would have like Colombo come in and deliver that last bit we look just don't even Italy for a while okay that your Colombo impression he sounded just like just Guardado's spot so this kind of happened here in there until about two oh two BC and then about a hundred years after that the gentleman name Lucius Cornelius Sulla I love all these Roman dictator some like either seventies like blaxploitation movie scorers or Roman gladiators sure so he was appointed dictator without a term limit in didn't have these restrictions and so this sort of changed the game from here on out yeah and he actually wanted Caesar dead the Caesar ran off and joined the army Julius Caesar I should say and no and just basically laid low until sela died and then Caesar came back him he was appointed counsel and then dictator himself he succeeded sela right yes and Caesar is very well known to be a dictator but he actually if you look at the stuff he did he was a friend of the people he forgave the debts among the benevolent dictator pretty much yeah among the middle and lower classes he improved infrastructure he I am he basically went to bat for the lower classes which threaten the elite because he it made him immensely popular plus he was a dictator so he actually created it he states to Q. three to become a dictator right to gain power yeah which we'll talk about a little more and then it a coup was plotted against him and he was assassinated by the ruling elite of the Senate on my birthday yeah well long time before my birthday you know what I mean back in nineteen seventy one yeah we I mean we tossed out benevolent dictator couple times getting around but that's a real term that generally means a dictator who for the most part isn't just in it for themselves and they are trying to make things better for the people right but it depends on your perspective yeah exactly so like the ruling elite found him very threatening and they would not have considered a benevolent at all right but like say the average plebeian would have been like I love Caesar yeah give me some more of the coins with his face on it yeah I mean followers of Castro still after his death say he was a benevolent dictator sure but again people say now it's perspective yes the subjective term basically a Napoleon actually he came to power again like many dictators in a state of emergency and he was actually a benevolent dictator in a sense because he he did a lot of great things for awhile for the people right he was extremely popular yeah he was undefeated at the time that he rose to power he was appointed counsel and then he said you know what let's go for that I'm going to call myself emperor they said okay to pull you in what could possibly go wrong with that yeah well first he was named consul then he was like I think council for life has a better ring to it and then that wouldn't enough right so he's likely to shorten like you said though he was super popular because he was he was undefeated as a military leader he balanced the budget he reform government he wrote the civil law which a lot of it is still around today in France yes of the law right not too bad he had a lasting impact for sure he did it again and again two column benevolent if you're a member of parliament who write their own out of one of the windows of the parliament Rainey took over you probably wouldn't be like yourself right he also control had an iron thumb on the press he controlled every facet of government he added spies working for him right so it's not like and he wasn't just a you know Bozo the clown now both because of the cloud of secrecy no if you put all that together they check you get the impression of Y. by historians consider Napoleon the first modern dictator yeah he checked basically every box there was he had it figured out your new boxes and check those right he said all the caters to follow your boxes I just looked down in your notes and I want to show you something I think we should take a break but before then okay trucking I think you should see this yes so in this article on dictators from howstuffworks there's a side bar is what they're called in web print parlance yes a little extra bit and it the title of the sub bars dark dictator that's all we need is a and it talks about emperor Palpatine in his rise and Chuck had his ex doubt it and I independently right out as well so we will be talking about that today everybody now but let's do take that break in will discuss that private so you don't get to know about it we'll be right back the

"To the podcast them Josh Clark there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant and two of us again and not getting any easier this is just a good old this man reading Jerry back where are you Jerry would you go selfish Jerry wants to be at home with their baby yeah we all went to the shopping at K. Mart and she wandered off women seniors and we all want to be home with Jerry's baby sure it's cute baby we can't you know the old joke that Jerry could be replaced with the lows dipping birds just hit record yeah we were just kidding it's that happening if it is true maybe not the post production stuff but definitely the recording thing clearly takes a finger to say okay you guys are all yeah we cannot stop griping about the sun I know it's just weird you know when a threesome becomes do some things get awkward yeah I try it becomes a diet or wanted to some comes a threesome that gets super awkward or I mean really any time you're moving people in and out of some sort of dynamic here it can be weird that's right transitions the rough I think is that that's what you put on the teacher old cement yeah the transition is rough any time you're moving people in and out of the dynamic ready yes didn't you say that already yeah we're recording Chuck I have something for you right I am not much of a gossip at all I just don't do it yeah good but do you know who does Jerry hall lock in this is a really vicious I know she's not here right now yeah which is between the two of us I don't gossip Jerry does mean you should really watch out for I heard that she gossips but I'm not saying that but I just heard that I got to well I've seen her do it she's gossip to me finds me very important and like to confide in me but it's just so vicious so we just gossiped we did that was play acting though the ironic thing was that I was gossiping about how I don't gossip yeah that that came through huh everybody gossips yeah I guess so I mean apparently people got some way more than they realize but I think you're right I think gossip is a normal thing I had such a bad connotation though that people say like I don't gossip another gossip but liars technically not necessarily Mars I think it also as far as like linguists and and psychologists are concerned yeah it comes from a misunderstanding of what costs of what constitutes gossip that's right look at its basic barest bare bottomed element gossip is simply too or it can be more but a couple of people speaking about a third person's business well the third person is in there there's another person who's being talked about the isn't there it doesn't necessarily mean you're talking about how they're just just what a lousy parent they are sure spending baby shoe money on gambling rather than gambling in order to get more shoes yeah that's bad parenting right there there's all sorts of you can say you could also say actually that guy is a great dude he spends all his money on nothing but baby shoes that's gossip it is gossiping it's not necessarily harmful it's in this case you're you're helping someone else the social status in other people's eyes that's still gossip yeah I think let's go this is Tracy of stuff you missed in history class wrote this one that is true she's always thorough and she included in here something I thought was pretty pertinent a gossip V. rumor yeah and there are differences and well I say there's differences but if U. S. professionals who study this and are weird as you do that they will say it sometimes it's not the same thing or a rumor is just the type of gossip right here some other distinguishing factors gossip is based in fact rumors are based on hypotheses yeah I don't know about that one that makes sense to me because it kind of ties in with the the last one yeah a gossip is a tool for maintaining social order which we're gonna talk about at length sure rumor is a tool for explaining things that people do not understand I'm not sure I get that like there's garbage raining from the sky it's the government that's a rumor okay where is if you like Charles is up on the roof again dumping is garbage out on the street that's because of the technically so for this just laying it out there yeah it's true and then finally got super late something people believe this happened but rumor expresses something people hope or fear will happen so I have my own hypothesis of the distinction between rumor and gossip and tear rumor is on curated gossip rumors any dude walking on the street you can be like there's garbage fall from the sky is the government there's no bond that's formed the there's no requirement of a bond yeah where is gossip requires some sort of connection or you're forming a connection from the gossip you know I'm saying yeah it's just for anybody gossip is between confidants to an extent yeah and Tracy point set out to and that is why supposedly celebrity gossip is it qualifies doesn't qualify as gossip because it's a third party that doesn't know the others in general sure unless it's you know Jennifer Aniston is talking smack about Brian Collins that she would never do that oh really that she loves courting **** they're still friends sure why does she ever have around cougar town and I think she was a cougar town now all I say corrected although I have no idea X. of never sink it or did you hear about what happened I heard she washed her hair and Evian water this Shannon Dougherty yeah that's right so the rumor gossip I don't know what a rumor because we don't know Shannon Doherty true and then there are some other stipulations that researchers point out for gossip that I also take issue with some of these the conversation takes place in private usually the case yeah it's not like actual private depends what private means you you better base get the shoulders turned their circa the creation of a private situation yeah I got you people are saying it is if it were fact even though it's not confirmed that's definitely true yeah but that's not necessarily the case that's I take issue with that one it's kind of like you're saying like I heard all true but I haven't checked it out to take with a grain of salt but get this yeah a man I've been in that local people yeah we are talking about that knowing each other and then the body language and tone it does suggest a moral judgment that's a big one you know like when people use of this town but again that's malicious gossip typically there's such a thing so this is it should be said interest isn't really Satanists I think she was drinking while she was writing that's what that's what I heard that yeah she didn't lay out that there's really two types the gossip one is malicious gossip that's sure to the type of gossip people think about when they hear the word gossip but the other type the far more apparently far more prevalent type is regular gossip yeah that that was some weird unsubstantiated stat here that only that five percent was malicious yeah among most gossip yeah how in the world did they pull that out of there Keister here's that's a great question it was day so they are linguists historians the anthropologists psychologists people who started studying casting for a very long time everyone's aware of gossip but they're like it's just noise if you have to be studies not worth our kids to be ignored and as a matter of fact there's this really great article in the Atlantic that talked about gossiping how it was viewed and specifically there's this thing in the sixteenth and seventeenth century England head in like a cul scolds bridle and if you want to see what is gold bridal is you should check that out online because there are actual such things they're basically iron masks with like points sticking into the the woman who is accused of gossips mouth usually woman and she would just have to wear them be publicly humiliated a lot of them had like a leash leading from so I guess the the gossip or this cold is with these calls could be paraded around town right yeah I also get the feeling that the a lot of women were probably made to wear those who just talk too much yeah I would I have the same as the same impressions because of the time period for us so that's how people typically viewed gossip it was something to be stamped out it was something that was thank you very undesirable in academia treated it the same way in World War two came around and I think the government saw that there was some real harm that could be done with gossip with rumors and they wanted to start to understand that so that kind of led to the basis of academia investigating what gossip was what rumors are yes and then overtime organizations got in on the act because there came this idea that if the rumor mill or you the gossip mill in your office was really going over time yeah you need to stamp that out true they found the opposite is actually true yeah they found a can do a lot in a work place to keep people in line either by scaring them online or what it what it seems like a lot of gossip does and that kind of environment is it establishes like the norms in the cultures expected right out of the bosses that's like one low level that's like low level background gossip yeah if it's peaking and really working overtime yes you do from what I understand you're not supposed to attack the gossips we're supposed to do is be more transparent at the top and then people don't have reason to gossip right so it's not it doesn't mean that you have a lot of gossips at your place it's a normal human situation as we'll see yeah it means that your managers and the people who are running the show are being open enough for the the whole employees tastes right see what I mean yeah good point that was a big thing that came out of studying it but take it your question I'm about to finish yeah the study by eavesdropping on like people who are talking in cafeterias that's about the only way you can yeah because it's so spontaneous and it's largely unconscious yeah and less it's you know just some dumb poll where you're asking people about gossiping self reporting polls like that I don't put a lot of a stock and you know well actually they're funny look at there's one that found that about we spent about three quarters of our time gossiping apparently yeah and that's in the broadest sense of the definition right right not necessarily malicious yeah because about five percent of that supposedly is malicious but people self report gossiping about they say they spend about thirty percent of their time to rather than seventy five percent people are like our only cost like thirty percent now and all that comes from eavesdropping on people and then asking them afterwards whether they gossip Tracy points out rightfully so that most world religions have always said gossip is a bad thing including the Christian Bible in Leviticus thou shalt not go up and down as a tale Berra Monday people who that was good by the way I want to echo the kudos they have wrong throughout social media yeah plotting your scary spider growing right now man in a Halloween episode it was Cletus the slack jawed yokel sort of in my friend big John well it was good the match up I appreciate that.

"And welcome to the podcast on Josh Clark and there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant and there's cheery over there somewhere over there and this is stuff you should go the continuing crypto zoology addition this finish is that right I don't know about that we've done big foot lock this monster yeti we haven't done like moth man since the trooper Kabra keep a cover that's a big one too yeah this lender manta slender man's more internet folklore than anything do we do that one or did we think about it and not do it the latter of those two if I remember correctly I said it stinks or something if I remember correctly hurt my feelings a man I think it was I think we could do slender man now it was just so early on that it was very stand now I think it would be more robust it was slender yeah that's right well today we're talking with the yeti which is not slender depending on which you're you're talking about Chuck it's either enormous and like eight feet tall covered in gray or white or maybe sometimes reddish hair sure weighing four hundred five hundred pounds easily yeah or actually it is kind of slander it could be basically what amounts to a a wild hippie basically a somebody who likes to grub routes out of the ground and lets out a squeal or cry every once in awhile just to know that their life and there's really two competing versions of what those of us in the western world would would think was the yeti but the one we're really talking about is the first one what we also think of is the abominable snowman how does he be rob he was average like five something I guess like hi my mom is a little shorter than me okay yeah he was not he was not the he was at the wheel the yeti of legend as far as I know he could be now though well I don't know who dissented awful I like him candid statement yet he opened in the mountains grubbing for roots yep I have heard in in dirt and with wild crazy hair so I think we should just tell like if you don't know what we're talking about this is the the legendary beast that lives in Asia yeah around the Himalayas typically yeah so that it's known as Asia's big foot or maybe big foot is known as north America's yet he I don't know I guess yet he came first right yeah I think yeah he's been around with the sharper of Tibet for a very long time yeah and that's sort of the deal of this the origin story of this thing is the yeti has been told for many many years and traditional stories in that area this is that there was someone name Shiva dot call that collected a bunch of these stories in a book called folk tales of sherpa and yeti and all of them kind of figured the same way which was whether it's a story called the annihilation of the Eddie in which this is pretty good it's about sherpa seeking revenge on a tormenting group of yet he's this sounds like something that should be on like the scifi channel I would be very surprised if it wasn't but all of these stories basically have the same moral message at the end which is B. K. it's sort of like a Grimm's fairy tale like be careful out on the worst actually yeah exactly I think it it serves the exact same purpose to like in the Grimms fairy tales and I thought the same thing you know there's which is that living candy houses so don't go wandering off in the woods kids because you'll end up getting eaten it for little kids in Tibet it was don't wander off into the Tibetan plateau or the Jedi will get you and you will all sorts of terrible things will happen to you which is funny because they're all sorts of real things that could kill you in the Tibetan plateau well that's what I think what they were saying was you know sure you can't just be like you look out for the bears can still be like I don't know I can see a brass could be in like the bare everybody knows it bears all wrestle a bear any day of the week then maybe and then you know along the way it gets into a drinking contest with Marion from Indiana Jones yeah the store and right right exactly that was one of the best scenes in the history of film yeah yeah I think so and Tibetan kids tend to agree with me too before we move on I want to say one thing that annihilation of the eighty keep keep that in in the back your mind okay story was that like they're a bunch of yeti that were hanging around and the super sick of hanging around so this ship of basically through a yeti party yeah I got drunk and fought with each other and to provide an example to the yeti Hey you should get drunk and fight with each other to in the hopes of the yeti would destroy each other it didn't work in the yeti all managed to escape except for one who is supposedly killed by a a llama one of the Buddhist monks in the area so that's part of the story that's the end that's the annihilation of the yeti story I don't know a lot of figured and okay really inoculation is kind of a strong word if you think about it because if you just kill born out of I think two hundred and forty Eddie hardly annihilation that's a good point I think so too so throughout history these legends have been pervasive in the region so much so that a supposedly the great Alexander or Alexander the great that's why I did that when he came through town in Concord the Indus valley he said the as I could see a one of your famous yet these I don't know if this will examine the great sounded like now know what ancient Roman sound like it's not it was the Roman I think it was Greek that was a she's how about a really screw that up yeah see I knew that two German accent just for him I'm just gonna leave I know Hank hang tight Chuck a rebound yeah what it what it is I think he was Roman inaccurate because well because the Romans like to pretend they were Greek themselves I'm not firing on all cylinders but regardless of my bad accent or maybe I should just add it back in and say that was my Greek accent there you go he said I want to see Eddie and they the local locals are like you know we totally would do that however the you can't get him down the slow and you'd have to hike really high up in those mountains and I know you're not down with that so sorry yeah exactly so I guess Alexander the great was like on board I can't believe we're still talking about this give me some wine yep pretty got a drinking contest and that was that so the yeti continued on in it and sharper tradition in in Tibet Nepal and Bhutan but in the west it kind of disappeared from view until the twentieth century it's so remember these are tall tales that the D. sherpa teach their kids although there is supposedly some I guess the general belief as well but I can't I can't quite penetrated but just imagine that it was just strictly tall tales okay sure but people told their kids than westerners came in and said what is this you're talking about tell us about this and just bought the whole thing hook line and sinker yeah and things really took form in nineteen twenty one there's a journalist named Henry Newman he did an interview with some British explorers and this is a time of great exploration especially from the British these sort of these I guess Indiana Jones like mountaineers who would go all over the world in search of these you know jungles and mountains in search of crazy beast and and treasures and things like that right sure so he interviewed some of these guys and they said you know what we found these huge footprints up in the mountains and the locals there I guess sharper said because we didn't sharper the plural sharper did management I'm pretty sure yeah that was a good episode by the way everyone it was go back and listen to their own what was the title warm friendly living yeah can I quit sending the north gay said so great yeah so they said that their guides are sharper guides call them mito con mi which the translation the real translation is a little awkward man bear snowman right but Newman confused all that he got the snowman part right right he translated that first part to mean medo M. E. T. O. H. demean filthy or dirty and then he changed that on his own to the word abominable right and that's the way we get the abominable snowman yeah he was like I don't like feel the snow man I'm going to change the name that I've already gotten wrong a certain into abominable snowman it's a really great journalist but it's fascinating that you can trace it back to this one dummy yeah that's the whole that what abominable snowman that's where it came from was this one guy and then obviously just completely captured the attention of the rest of the world when he he he wrote this because like this was not just like oh yeah they heard about an abominable snowman it was these give these explorers found tracks and they're insured but guides told them the trucks belong to this abominable snowman therefore their abominable snowmen living in the Himalayas and the explorer who was it who led that particular expedition was Charles Howard bury Howard hyphen berry B. U. R. Y. and apparently she N. new men were really big into promoting the idea of it abominable snow man or men living in the Himalayas and it that it just be like this giant huge creature was shaggy haired very much akin to big foot but if you look at the the descriptions the traditional descriptions of the yet either they're much smaller and not nearly as huge as the the westerners kind of immediately made it out to be yeah there was one description one of the earlier written descriptions from nineteen forty two there was a researcher named Mira Shaklee and I believe that she got this information from two hikers that reported seeing the yeti right and this is what they said the height was not much less than eight feet so tall for sure but it's not like it was ten feet tall the head we're we're the head skis or two of them were described as squarish in the ears must lie close to this goal because there was no projection from the silhouette against the snow on the shoulders sloop slowly down to a powerful chest covered by reddish brown hair which formed a close body for mix with long straight hairs hanging downward about the.

"And welcome to the podcast and Josh collectors Charles W. Chuck Bryant news cherry over there this is stuff you should know about people who have really bad luck the nine of them yeah we can't I don't think we've ever done a tent full top ten list every now that that that should be our last episode yeah it's like stuff you should know's ten biggest regrets right that's a great idea yeah that'll be the last one rentals right that there's no we don't have ten regrets yeah I guess we can do a full time actually comprise competent no we couldn't good con number one that's a big one this interest definitely up there too number two zero we're on our way all right good I'm feeling pretty good I'm great you feel lucky punk I am a pretty lucky personalizado at I would agree with that in my friends of call me the rabbit's foot over the years yep so there I was rubbing it but that's that's a mainly for narrowly escaping trouble more than anything how about a story Chuck laid on us just I mean I was I was very famous among my group of friends for getting pulled over by police and not getting tickets right I mean at one point it was it it literally happened like fourteen times in a row or something over a span of like ten or twelve years okay it happened a lot that I never and I didn't get my first ticket till she's probably in my thirties mid thirties how did you how what happened did you talk your way out of it yeah you know what you do man and my brother always gets a ticket and he's much nicer than I am but you just got to be as humble humble humble humble humble as you can be and if you show the slightest bit of attitude than that police officer in my experience will delight in writing you that ticket sure I mean even if it's if it's a sideways look and I basically just throw myself at the mercy of the court on the side of the road I'm like I'm so sorry officer I you are you should have pulled me over you did the right thing I was wrong and I'm sorry there's no excuse here's what I was going to eat these French fries but you should have come here the zero hearings are always a little disarmed in there like oh well okay well I guess I can which offer the warning I don't know that's been my experience all right there's Chuck advice right there yeah so you get out of fourteen tickets so did you forget to the last the fifteenth time did you forget it's just near Coloma pig what no I think it was just one of those things were like they were writing the ticket even before I had a chance to do my little song and dance they brought me the ticket I was calling wait a minute don't you know who I am I'm the guy that gets added tickets author USA I'm Chuck from service should not happen that means nothing that's how you that's how you get on these days but he well we're talking today about some people who have very bad luck you know like a lot of these lists usually you're just like no to this one noted that on no this is wrong I think we try to do list once where I think our man I can't remember which one it was for like every single entry was just like just false right yeah that's only the case of like three of these this time which I'm pretty that's not a bad batting average for a listicle yeah and some of these are the word like kind of bothers me sometimes because as is the case we'll go and get to the first one Ron Wayne who was one of the three partners about apple computers that's not bad luck run Wayne made a business decision have you that's a good point you ever heard of Ron lane before now Hey you know I have it and had I heard his name I would have been like it sounds like porn actor but he's not going after oh no that was that was another guy I can't say his real name now who I demand that you say I'll tell you off Mike okay so he turns out this guy was not a porn dog he was one of the three founders of apple and as far as I'd known to this point there are two founders of apple turns out there were three at the beginning for like the first twelve days yes so go back to nineteen seventy six in our way back machine and nerdy little jobs a nerdy little Wozniak our young guys in their twenties and they had this great they didn't know it at the time well they may have known it suspected but this this great vision for the future but they were kind of kids and they didn't have any experience so they look to a guy named Ron when he was in his forties to come in and kind of help what they called with adult supervision because I mean they were programmers from Atari but yeah they didn't have the actual business sense or whatever and I was just a party job at the time I believe so yeah but I'm I had no idea Tory produced apple though did you yeah I did a bunch of Atari I research stuff for my tech stuff yes but O. okay cool yeah we did a history of Atari two parter speaking of guest spots me and let me just also give a shot a real quick sorry to interrupt this little entry but I was on our good friend Jon go forth in our new friend Brent's podcasts hysteria fifty one recently an ice yeah we talked about the family paradoxes for like an hour it was awesome so go check it out hysteria fifty one go check that out okay so plug out right so we're in nineteen seventy six Y. as in jobs are recruited one one Wayne run at Wayne to be the adult in the room to help with engineering documentation and it was actually Ron Wayne who who drafted the very first apple contract and said you know this is what they greet on he does make it up it which said how much everyone is gonna get he got ten percent to jobs and Wozniak forty five and he even created the first apple logo which was not the logo we know and love now it was a it was like it would cut style thing of Isaac Newton under the apple tree not that terrible I disagree I think it sounds ugly so run window well he was very very quickly was like I don't know if this is my kind of place I thought it was a good idea like what these guys are doing but this company in a garage Steve Jobs keeps taking acid during the middle of business hours didn't really yeah well Steve jobs so he was pretty cool from what I understand sure I'm he brown when he was like I I don't I don't think I fit in here also apparently he was worried that he was going to have to pony up for you know whatever business debts they incurred I think that was a big deal and he was like all right I'm out I'm out yes he was an adult he was like I've got a house in like of I'm a real adult human like they're gonna turn to me certainly when they had to go so he he cashed out and in twelve days twelve days after they establish their contract in the contract was kept by Ron Wayne actually we'll get to that in a second but he cast out for twenty three hundred dollars two hundred thirty thousand you say no two thousand three hundred the event which is still today worst less than like ten grand yeah and he didn't even get it all at once again eight hundred right then and then he agreed to take fifteen hundred later and that was nineteen seventy six and in nineteen eighty apple in public and everybody involved became an instant millionaire and years later it hit the trillion dollar mark for valuation and all the while run Wayne got to watch this company grow and grow and grow and realize that he'd sold off ten percent of the stake in the company for twenty three hundred Bucks yeah and apparently if he had held all those stocks he'd be worth close to a hundred billion dollars so he he takes issue with that he said he probably lost out on tens of millions yeah I mean I guess it depends on what like you can't you can't go back and do it all over again like any money says right I guess there's always the thing of like well yeah but he always maintains I would've gotten out after that before the big Cassian anyway probably so I don't like to look at it is that sort of a loss is what he told himself basically or else I would have gone totally insane a long time ago yeah but he did apparently he wrote a Facebook essay and said I probably that would have been around in nineteen eighty and gotten some pretty good change and and I think regrets it yeah he said had he known that it and everybody is going to become a millionaire in four years he definitely would've hung in there but he just is hindsight's twenty twenty you know yeah and the cherry on top here is pretty interesting though yeah he said he kept that contract that worry first apple contract and that he drew up any kept it any auction it off in the early nineties for how much five hundred Somalians five hundred dollars mmhm and what happened not bad it was just a piece of paper here hanging around well sure somebody turned around an auction it off years later in two thousand eleven for almost one point six million Ron Wayne now that one's bad luck when we did that with his life all right he wrote for essays on Facebook no I mean nobody did okay all right yeah I guess so I mean I'm Steve Jobs okay but I doubt if you like you know got it got a low wage hourly paying job I.

"Welcome to the podcast I'm Josh Clark there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant there's Jerry over there in its two thousand seventeen share your benevolent dictator yeah she's got those Catholics that she wears off and the sun glasses I was just coming out of this is a pretty good article here from howstuffworks yeah yeah I heard that before to read this once you have that on there I always have it on there he didn't have it today it might be is Sheena Freeman joined I think it may be that sounds familiar yeah anyway it's a good one yeah here it is that was that was word for word by intro Hey you just stole my mind reading classes have been paying off Chuck yes if you ever lived under a dictatorship not exactly no no I haven't either yeah and I think we should kind of cancer cells fairly lucky sure because it turns out that not only were we born in a country that most people would argue is not a dictatorship although you can find plenty of websites that argue that it is it is it has been for the last several years possibly even for the most part most people would say it's not a dictatorship so we're lucky to be born in a country that isn't a dictatorship but not only that we're lucky to be born in a time when dictatorships have become fairly hard to find comparatively speaking because dictatorships were basically the way that people were ruled for thousands of years yeah up until very recent times around the time of the enlightenment when the idea of individual liberties in the protection of those into individual liberties became kind of widespread yeah and now this article kind of starts off I thought it was that was interesting that you don't often well first of all the word dictator is just one like the one who dictates the thing it's kind of funny when you break down the actual definition yeah right now the only thing that makes a lot of sense that it's the guy who paces back and forth in front of the desk because somebody's typing or anything take dictation yeah but they don't call themselves that very often although it has happened we get into the history it's it's we should point out that like Castro and Saddam Hussein you never hear them say I'm dictator as a bad rap you know on the dictator Fidel Castro yeah it's like propaganda got turned into PR yeah that will call themselves premier or president or chancellor or fewer boss of you Kim Kim Jong il holds three titles and he's looking for a fourth and fifth mmhm like as we speak well he's in the ground his son oh wait I got this to confuse right yeah well he held three titles yes he did and imagine what his son probably holds for than he probably found that fourth just made one up did you know that there's like a I I you know the Kim Jong moon is the supreme leader of North Korea but he actually technically shares power with two other officials as well they have basically triumvirate going there it was news to me yeah those guys are called keep quiet one and keep quiet to I was just looking up some of his greatest hits recently yeah and Kim Jong moon alone is already started to amass several but one was a north Korean leader a pretty high ranking official was executed with an anti aircraft machine gun for slouching or falling asleep at a at a meeting holy cow right but you're certainly imagine what that would do a body yeah thank god for you should you should take that kind of stuff with a grain of salt especially when it's coming out of North Korea because we have really virtually no idea what's going on here today over their big events like that even if it is true that that guy was executed with an anti aircraft gun whether or not it was for falling asleep during an end right at a meeting or something like that remains to be seen yeah you're saying take any information with a grain of salt yes yes good advice thanks but as Shayna I believe Shayna points out that the dictators do have some things in common one of the big ones is is almost a hundred percent of the time a dictator doesn't come to power through it an election they're usually not freely elected to that position no but they have been they have been yeah pretty prominently like Hitler you know he was elected there when he named chancellor sh yes by the elected president though right but he still wasn't elected no I guess that's true thank fine let's get into history then all right please say deck dictators got a bad because it's gotten a bad rap over the years right as far as calling yourself that I think so but it it officially originally and I couldn't I saw a couple references to Greece but it seems to be Rome classic room classic room it chips coming into the party and everybody's like that's a classic room I tried to walk to that screen door open so classical Rome how about that it seems to be an invention of classical Rome right I'm there is a station called dictator there's an office basically in in ancient Rome did the leadership was held by two men called councils yeah and they were equally powerful from what I understand consuls council consul okay sure right I'm M. when something went down and stuff hit the fan the Romans had a tradition of appointing one of the council's dictator yes which is basically an emergency investment of unparalleled power into this one person in the whole thinking behind it was it when you were faced with an emergency when the state was faced with an emergency you need somebody who can basically get stuff done yeah like a single voice yeah it didn't have to go to the Senate to ask anything didn't have to go worry about making the wrong moves the dictator couldn't be held a criminally liable for their decisions yeah I didn't have to worry about not being invited to the other consoles Christmas party the next year right the other council wanted to be invited to the dictators Christmas party yeah it's so you there was an investment of these emergency powers this one person and usually I saw one year this article says it lasted for six months and then the dictator be like well that was a wild ride I'm going back to my normal life the rebellion has been quelled or the sieges over something like that yeah and interestingly there are a few rules legally responsible for their actions right big one it says couldn't be in office longer than six months although I think it's I think they were there to handle the situation is kind of a long as it took yeah for the most part but there were also guys who like whoa whoa I like the feel of this idea I'm not giving this up and they'll say well you have to we say in the navy said while I'm the dictator they said we hadn't thought this all the way through now Mr yeah they could change Roman law in the constitution they couldn't use public money unless other than what the Senate said you could use it for so they supposedly still in these are the official rules you know as we see coming up here people bet these roles and they couldn't leave Italy was the last one that's a good one and they would have like Colombo come in and deliver that last bit we look just only even Italy for a while okay that your Colombo impression he sounded just like just Guardado's so this kind of happened here in there until about two OO to BC and then about a hundred years after that the gentleman name Lucius Cornelius Sulla I love all these Roman dictator some might either seventies like blaxploitation movie scorers or Roman gladiators sure so he was appointed dictator without a term limit in didn't have these restrictions and so this sort of changed the game from here on out yeah and he actually wanted Cesar de Cesar ran off and joined the army Julius Caesar I should say and no and just basically lay low until seller died and then Caesar came back him he was appointed counsel and then dictator himself he succeeded sela right yes and Caesar is very well known to be a dictator but he actually if you look at the stuff he did he was a friend of the people he forgave the debts among the benevolent dictator pretty much yeah among the middle and lower classes he improved infrastructure he he basically went to bat for the lower classes which threaten the elite because he it made him immensely popular plus he was a dictator so he actually created it he staged a coup to to become a dictator right to gain power yeah which we'll talk about a little more and then it a coup was plotted against him and he was assassinated by the ruling elite of the Senate on my birthday yeah well long time before my birthday you know what I mean back in nineteen seventy one yeah we I mean we tossed out benevolent dictator couple times getting around but that's a real term that generally means a dictator who for the most part isn't just in it for themselves and they are trying to make things better for the people right but it depends on your perspective yeah exactly so like the ruling elite found him very threatening they would not have considered a benevolent at all right but like say the average plebeian would have been like I love Caesar yeah give me some more of the coins with his face on it yeah I mean followers of Castro still after his death say he was a benevolent dictator sure but again people say now it's perspective yes this objective term basically a Napoleon actually he came to power again like many dictators in a state of emergency and he was actually a benevolent dictator in a sense because he he did a lot of great things for awhile for the people he was the extremely popular yeah he was undefeated at the time that he rose to power he was appointed counsel and then he said you know what let's go look for that I'm gonna call myself emperor they said okay Napoleon what could possibly go wrong with that yeah well first he was named consul then he was like I think council for life has a better ring to it and then that wouldn't enough right so he's likely to shorten like you said though he was super popular because he was he was undefeated as a military leader he balanced the budget he reformed government he wrote the civil law which a lot of it is still around today in France yes of the law right not too bad he had a lasting impact for sure he did it again and again in two column benevolent if you're a member of parliament who write thrown out of one of the windows over parliament Rainey took over you probably wouldn't be like so benevolent he also control had an iron thumb on the press he controlled every facet of government he added spies working for him right so it's not like and he wasn't just a you know Bozo the clown now officials in both both of the cloud of secrecy no if you put all that together they check you get the impression I'm Y. by historians consider Napoleon the first modern dictator yeah he checked basically every box there was he had it figured out your new boxes and check those right he said all the taters to follow here's your boxes I just look down in your notes and I want to show you something I think we should take a break but before then okay trucking I think you should see this yeah so in this article on dictators from howstuffworks there's a side bar is what they're called and web print parlance yeah just a little extra bit and it the title of the sub bars dar's dictator that's all we need is a and it talks about emperor Palpatine in his rise and Chuck had his ex doubt it and I independently right out as well so we will be talking about that today everybody now but let's do take that break and we'll discuss that private so you don't get to know about it we'll be right back.

A. for forty seven years I've just sort of had this never done again on what a think tank was I hear it now I kind of assumed I knew it was going to write yeah it's a good it's a good term for something yeah I was like with this but this is like a bunch of smart people sit around thinking about smart stuff exactly this kind of rate is exactly what it is ideally it's like a it's like a place where people sit around and think about things that eventually hopefully affects public policy in in a positive way is what you're ultimately hoping for yeah and I think we don't mean if you went by think tank they would all just be sitting around going I think it depends on the day of the week or if it's right if there's a ton of research and study I see something like that they're not just pulling stuff out of thin air now no that's the point of think tanks as they are groups of people nonprofit organizations in the US we should say yeah which will get to the finer points of that who say you know what we see this problem in America and or the world or wherever Great Britain has plenty China has a bunch and they say how can we solve this problem let's get to it we're gonna we're gonna take this problem on and figure it out through pragmatic science and evidence based research we're going to come up with a solution to this problem and then the next step is to get it out there to the public to policy makers to get people talking about it yeah and then once enough people talk about it there's a public debate over it ideally if it's a good idea it will be adopted as public policy and that problem will be solved in a in a good way yeah and that's the ideal function of a in an ideal think tank which is to say it is nonpartisan it is fact based and it doesn't have an agenda necessarily but things have changed over the years as we will see fairly recently Chuck yeah seems like and and think tanks can be very much slanted but we'll get into all that let's just sort of a long winded set up okay it was a good set up the men should we go back and check on our body Plato but critics yes the Plato his academy the academy was some people say it was sort of the world's first think tank which makes sense yeah he would get dudes they would sit around in the garden and and I would imagine drink wine sure in talks marks and the philosophy and kind of you know like it was high minded stuff for the day to sit around and think about sort of what was going on around them and how they could impact change yeah or is thinking about the nature of reality or existence they once decided that knowledge was uncertain in life is essentially a craps game based on probability rather than absolute truths if you step back and think about it that is the basis of quantum mechanics you could you imagine if they had access to LST back then I know I don't think it's too terribly different well yeah they they were sort of traveling down the road anyway but that was I mean that's that's pretty impressive some of the stuff they came up with this is again we you know we did a skeptic's episode yep this is enough to start you know I'm sorry not skepticism stoicism and member yeah sure this is where the stuff was all these different philosophies we're all going kind of grew from this academy so now you can make a pretty good case that it was the world's first think tank yeah it's a little it's not the first modern think tank but it qualifies in a lot of ways no there was one in eighteen thirty one and Great Britain the Duke of Wellington establish what was called the royal United services institution which studied like military science yeah and then here in the U. S. in nineteen ten the Carnegie endowment for international peace which studied the results of military science right now it's still around Carnegie man in they they still have been dialed many things they're well endowed and and then of course the Brookings Institution which may be the most famous modern American think tank to this day this one you probably hear about the most it was founded by Robert Brookings in nineteen sixteen and they had a lot of it I mean we saw a lot of influence but they had a great deal of influence I'm kind of post depression with FDR's new deal helped construct the new deal yeah help construct the Marshall Plan after World War two that was that was huge yeah very huge selling both for them if for sure the new deal definitely was but the Marshall Plan there is a there was a survey done of I think like four hundred fifty a story ends and they the number one most important thing that any government has done since World War two between one or two in the twenty first century was the Marshall Plan like it it not only like brought Europe back from World War two yeah it set your upon a path away from communism now where if you're not into communism that was a great positive benefit right yeah the way it did that was in two years based on this economic plan in two years it got Europe war ravaged ruler to ravaged Europe back to production levels twenty five percent higher than the production levels it was at before World War two in two years so I just went back to normal plus twenty five percent better in Europe said I kinda like this capitalism thing and western Europe went that way I was kind of curious because Brookings king's institution gives a lot of like left leaning criticism today so I kind of wonder were out that all came from and the article I read said that is a victory of the conservative side to have Brookings labeled liberal just from kind of pounding it in the press even though its history and its member board throughout the history has not been liberal at all and has been filled from the top down over the years with the rank and file Republicans and conservatives from like the Reagan era on through bush one and two okay so they've they've I knew the crosses liberals the liberals will swallow the stuff the Brookings is is putting out there no I don't they undermine their own think tank well I don't think it's not their own think tank it's not a conservative think tank was centrist like almost right down the middle from right but I think they want to advance their own with their conservative think tank I want to advance them so they'd label Brookings is super liberal I got you so anything centrist is liberal I think I got the weights are going down because what it is yeah I can't remember who scored it but somebody has a liberal score between zero and a hundred for think tanks in Brookings scored like a fifty three right down the middle yeah like apparently as far as think tanks go into battle is centrist as you possibly can get yeah and they've been around for a long time yeah thanks a lot of sense yep so it's not just Brookings Brookings definitely one of the most famous around the world is done quite a bit of stuff but there's plenty of others there's some the rand corporation is a very famous think tank yeah we should you know rand is actually a I don't know what you call it but it's supposed it started out as R. and D. like research and development rand corporation and from what I understand they've come up with the ideas for computers the internet US spy satellites the space program all that stuff that America did in the mid twentieth century technologically yes yeah the rand corporation like thinkers were the ones who came up with this stuff yeah I think I need is some of that and I don't I don't think it really hit home that they were think tank yeah it with the name like the rand corporation right sounds like just corporation but but they're they're like a think tank that's really specifically was specifically zoned into America's technology for progression I guess yeah I mean a lot of think tanks can be specialized like that like some are very very much just concentrate on economics some concentrate on social issues in that case technology and then I think some like Brookings are sort of a little more broad yeah to take any case we'll take all comers yeah so after World War two like they were think tanks before like you said Brookings Carnegie the royal United services institute in the U. K. there were like they were think tanks prior to World War two but after World War two they really proliferated and the reason they started was government was this kind of government it was a in the in the early twentieth century was just just this it wasn't it wasn't anything like you see it now wasn't this monolithic behemoth that has its tendrils into every aspect of people's lives or anything yeah it was a little too far the other way where it didn't quite know what it was doing so some of those early philanthropists like Carnegie in Brookings date they endow these think tanks to kind of help government out to basically be like the research arm for government to help direct the best way for America to go and that's how it started out and then after World War two when America had like all this cash in all this forward momentum think tanks really popped up and in there were all these kind of competing and then sometimes harmonious voices from these think tanks to say go this way go this way but yeah this way but the they all had something in common and that was that they were staffed by very smart people who did very deliberate very good research who produced policy positions that lawmakers could then take themselves and go out to the people and say see this is what I'm talking about here is the data here's a sound bite for you to make your hair stand that's what think tanks did in in a way they were they very much were along the same track as lobbying lobbyists which we did an episode on that is really good too but think tanks stopped short of lobbying allegedly yeah because they kind of had to starting in nineteen thirteen they were granted tax exempt status is a very big deal mmhm because there's a lot of money involved in many of these I've been trying to get that for myself for years tax you're right it is a very big deal the church of Josh just gonna go and that's it so I'm wearing this rogue in the nineteen fifties though is when Congress really kind of because they were tax exempt had to get involved and say Hey.

"And welcome to the podcast and Josh collectors Charles W. Chuck Bryant news Jerry over there this is stuff you should know about people who have really bad luck it the nine of them yeah we can't I don't think we've ever done a tent full top ten list every now now that that should be our last episode yeah it's like stuff you should know's ten biggest regrets right that's a great idea yeah that'll be the last one alright let's write that down and there's no we don't have ten regrets yeah I guess we can do a full time actually comprise kompletan now we couldn't good con number one that's a big one this interest definitely up there too number two zero we're on our way all right good I'm feeling pretty good I'm great you feel lucky punk I am a pretty lucky personalizado at I would agree with that good question huh my friends have called me the rabbit's foot over the years yep so there I was rubbing after that some that's a mainly for narrowly escaping trouble more than anything how about a story Chuck laid on us just I mean I was I was very famous among my group of friends for getting pulled over by police and not getting tickets right I mean at one point it was it it literally happened like fourteen times in a row or something over a span of like ten or twelve years okay hello it happened a lot that I never and I didn't get my first ticket till she's probably my thirties mid thirties how did you get her what happened to talk your way out of it yeah you know what you do man and my brother always gets a ticket and he's much nicer than I am but you just got to be as humble humble humble humble humble as you can be and if you show the slightest bit of attitude then that police officer in my experience will delight in writing you that ticket sure I mean even if it's if it's a sideways look and I basically just throw myself at the mercy of the court on the side of the road I'm like I'm so sorry officer I you are you should have pulled me over you did the right thing I was wrong and I'm sorry there's no excuse here's what I was gonna eat these French fries but you should have come here the hero here they're always a little disarmed in there like oh well okay well I guess I can which offer the warning I don't know that's been my experience all right there's Chuck advice right there yeah so you get out of fourteen tickets so did you forget to the last lived fifteen times you forget it's just near Coloma pig what no I think it was just one of those things were like they were writing the ticket even before I had a chance to do my little song and dance they brought me the ticket I was calling wait a minute don't you know who I am I'm the guy that gets added tickets author USA I'm Chuck from service should not happen that means nothing that's how you that's how you get on these days but he well we're talking today about some people who have very bad luck you know like a lot of these lists usually you're just like no to this one noted that one no this is wrong I think we try to do list once where I mean I can't remember which one it was for like every single entry was just like just false right yeah that's only the case of like three of these this time which I'm pretty that's a not a bad batting average for a listicle yeah and some of these are the word like kind of bothers me sometimes because as is the case we'll go and get to the first one Ron Wayne who was one of the original three partners about apple computers that's not bad luck run Wayne made a business decision have you that's a good point have you ever heard of runway before now had you know I have it in hand I heard his name I would have been like you sounds like porn actor but he's not an actor oh no that was that was another guy I can't say his real name now who I demand that you say I'll tell you off Mike okay so he turns out this guy was not **** actor he was one of the three founders of apple and as far as I'd known to this point there are two founders of apple turns out there were three at the beginning for like the first twelve days yes so go back to nineteen seventy six in our way back machine and nerdy of little jobs a nerdy little Wozniak our young guys in their twenties and they have this great they didn't know it at the time well they may have known it suspected but this this great vision for the future but they were kind of kids and they didn't have any experience so they look to a guy named Ron when he was in his forties to come in and kind of help what they called with adult supervision because I mean they were programmers from Atari but yeah they didn't have the actual business sense or whatever and I was just a party job at the time I believe so yeah but I'm I had no idea tari produced apple though did you yeah I I did a bunch of Atari I research stuff for my tech stuff yes but O. okay cool yeah we did a history of Atari two parter speaking of guest spots me and let me just also give a shot a real quick sorry to interrupt this little entry but I was on our good friend Jon go forth in our new friend Brent podcasts hysteria fifty one recently and ice yeah we talked about the family paradoxes for like an hour it was awesome so go check that out hysteria fifty one go check that out okay so plug out right so we're in nineteen seventy six Y. as in jobs the recruited one one Wayne run at Wayne to be the adult in the room to help with engineering documentation and it was actually Ron Wayne who who drafted the very first apple contract and said you know this is what they greet on he does make it up it which said how much everyone is gonna get he got ten percent to jobs and Wozniak forty five and he even created the first apple logo which was not the logo we know and love now it was a it was like a would cut style thing of Isaac Newton under the apple tree not that it's terrible yeah I disagree I think it sounds ugly so run window well he was very very quickly was like I don't know if this is my kind of place I thought it was a good idea like what these guys are doing but this company in a garage Steve Jobs keeps taking acid during the middle of business hours didn't really yeah well Steve jobs so he was pretty cool from what I understand sure I'm he brown when he was like I I don't I don't think I fit in here also apparently he was worried that he was going to have to pony up for you know whatever business debts they incurred I think that was a big deal and he was like all right I'm out I'm out yes he was an adult he was like I've got a house in like of I'm a real adult human like they're gonna turn to me certainly when they don't go so he he cashed out and in twelve days twelve days after they establish their contract in the contract was kept by Ron Wayne actually we'll get to that in a second but he cast out for twenty three hundred dollars two hundred thirty thousand you say no two thousand three hundred the event which is still today worst less than like ten grand yeah and he didn't even get it all at once again eight hundred right then and he agreed to take fifteen hundred later and that was nineteen seventy six and in nineteen eighty apple in public and everybody involved became an instant millionaire and years later it hit the trillion dollar mark for valuation and all the while run Wayne got to watch this company grow and grow and grow and realize that she'd sold off ten percent of the stake in the company for twenty three hundred Bucks yeah and apparently if he had held all those stocks he be worth close to a hundred billion dollars so he he takes issue with that he said he probably lost out on tens of millions yeah I mean I guess it depends on what like you can't you can't go back and do it all over again like any money says right I guess and there's always the thing of like well yeah but he always maintains I would've gotten out after that before the big Cassian anyway probably so I don't like to look at it is that sort of a loss is what he told himself basically or else I would have gone totally insane a long time ago yeah but he did apparently he wrote a Facebook essay and said it I've probably that would have been around in nineteen eighty and gotten some pretty good change and and I think regrets it yeah he said had he known that it and everybody is going to become a millionaire in four years he definitely would've hung in there but he just is hindsight's twenty twenty you know yeah and the cherry on top here is pretty interesting now yep he said he kept that contract that worry first apple contract and that he drew up and he kept it any auction it off in the early nineties for how much five hundred Somalians five hundred dollars nine and what happened not bad it was just a piece of paper here hanging around well sure somebody turned around an auction is office years later in two thousand eleven for almost one point six million Ron Wayne now that one's bad luck when we did that with his life he wrote essays on Facebook no I mean nobody did okay all right yeah I guess so I mean I'm Steve Jobs okay but I doubt if you like you know got it got a low wage hourly paying.

"Clark there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant there's Jerry over there in its two thousand seventeen your your benevolent dictator for real she's got those Catholics that she wears all and the sun glasses I was just coming out of this is a pretty good article here from howstuffworks now yeah I heard that before to read this one do you have that on there I always have it on there you didn't have it today it might be is Sheena Freeman joined I think it may be that sounds familiar yeah anyway it's a good one yeah well here it is that was that was word for word by intro Hey you just stole my mind reading classes been paying off Chuck yes we ever lived under a dictatorship not exactly no no I haven't either yeah and I think we should kind of cancer cells fairly lucky sure because it turns out that not only were we born in a country that most people would argue is not a dictatorship although you can find plenty of websites that argue that it yes it is he has been for the last several years possibly even for the most part most people would say it's not a dictatorship so we're lucky to be born in a country that isn't a dictatorship but not only that we're lucky to be born in a time when dictatorships have become fairly hard to find comparatively speaking because dictatorships were basically the way that people were ruled for thousands of years yeah up until very recent times around the time of the enlightenment when the idea of individual liberties and the protection of those into individual liberties became kind of widespread yeah and now this article kind of starts off I thought it was that was interesting that you don't often well first of all the word dictator is just one like the one who dictates the thing it's kind of funny when you break down the actual definition yeah right now only yeah that makes a lot of sense that it's the guy who paces back and forth in front of the desk because somebody's typing or anything take dictation yeah but they don't call themselves that very often although it has happened we get into the history it's it's we should point out that like Castro and Saddam Hussein you never hear them say I'm dictator as a bad rap you know on the dictator Fidel Castro yeah it's like propaganda got turned into PR yeah that will call themselves premier or president or chancellor or fewer boss of you Kim Kim Jong il holds three titles and he's looking for a fourth and fifth mmhm like as we speak well he's in the ground his son oh wait I got this to confuse right yeah well he held three titles yes he did and imagine what his son probably holds for then he probably found that fourth it's made one up did you know that there's like I I you know the Kim Jong moon is the supreme leader of North Korea but he actually technically shares power with two other officials as well they have basically triumvirate going there it was news to me yeah those guys are called keep quiet one and keep quiet to I was just looking up some of his greatest hits recently yeah and Kim Jong moon alone is already started to amass several but one was a north Korean leader up pretty high ranking official was executed with an anti aircraft machine gun for slouching or falling asleep at a at a meeting holy cow right but you're certainly imagine what that would do a body yeah my god for you should you should take that kind of stuff with a grain of salt especially when it's coming out of North Korea because we have really virtually no idea what's going on here today over there yeah big events like that even if it is true that that guy was executed with an anti aircraft gun whether or not it was for falling asleep during an end right at a meeting or something like that remains to be seen yeah you're saying take any information with a grain of salt yes yes good advice thanks but as Shayna I believe Shayna points out that the dictators do have some things in common one of the big ones is is almost a hundred percent of the time a dictator doesn't come to power through it an election they're usually not freely elected to that position no but they have been they have it yeah pretty prominently like Hitler you know he was elected I when he named chancellor yes by the elected president though right but he still wasn't elected no I guess that's true fine let's get into history then all right please see Dick dictators got a bad because it's got a bad rap over the years right as far as calling yourself that I think so but it it officially originally and I couldn't I saw a couple references to Greece but it seems to be Rome classic room classic room it chips coming into the party and everybody's like that's a classic room I tried to walk to that screen door open so classical Rome how about that it seems to be an invention of classical Rome right I'm there is a station called dictator there's an office basically in in ancient Rome did the leadership was held by two men called councils yeah and they were equally powerful from what I understand consuls council consul okay sure and when something went down and stuff hit the fan the Romans had a tradition of appointing one of the council's dictator yes which is basically an emergency investment of unparalleled power into this one person in the whole thinking behind it was it when you were faced with an emergency when the state was faced with an emergency you need somebody who can basically get stuff done yeah like a single voice yeah it didn't have to go to the Senate to ask anything didn't have to go worry about making the wrong move the dictator couldn't be held a criminally liable for their decisions yeah I didn't have to worry about not being invited to the other consoles Christmas party the next year right the other council wanted to be invited to the dictators Christmas party yeah it's so you there was an investment of these emergency powers is one person in usually I saw one year this article says it lasted for six months and then the dictator be like well that was a wild ride I'm going back to my normal life the rebellion has been quelled or the seeds is over or something like that yeah and interestingly there are a few rules they couldn't be held legally responsible for their actions right big one it says couldn't be in office longer than six months although I think is I think they were there to handle the situation is kind of a long as it took yeah for the most part but there were also guys who like whoo whoo I like the feel of this yeah I'm not giving this up and they'll say well you have to we say in the navy said while I'm the dictator we hadn't thought this all the way through yeah Mr yeah they could change Roman law in the constitution they couldn't use public money in less other than what the Senate said you could use it for so they supposedly still in these are the official rules you know as we see her coming up here people bet these roles and they couldn't leave Italy was the last one that's a good one and they would have like Colombo come in and deliver that last bit we look just only even Italy for a while okay that your Colombo depression he sounded just like just Guardado's the bottom so this cannot happen to hear in there until about two OO to BC and then about a hundred years after that the gentleman name Lucius Cornelius Sulla I love all these Roman dictator some might either seventies like blaxploitation movie stars or Roman gladiators sure so he was appointed dictator without a term limit in didn't have these restrictions and so this sort of changed the game from here on out yeah and he actually wanted Caesar dead Caesar ran off and joined the army Julius Caesar I should say and no and just basically lay low until sela died and then Caesar came back him he was appointed counsel and then dictator himself he succeeded so right yes in Caesar is very well known to be a dictator but he actually if you look at the stuff he did he was a friend of the people he forgave the debts along with a benevolent dictator pretty much yeah among the middle and lower classes he improved infrastructure he he basically went to bat for the lower classes which threaten the elite because he it made him immensely popular plus he was a dictator so he actually created it he staged a coup to to become a dictator right to gain power yeah which we'll talk about a little more and then it a coup was plotted against him and he was assassinated by the ruling elite of the Senate on my birthday yeah well long time before my birthday you know what I mean back in nineteen seventy one yeah we I mean we tossed out benevolent dictator couple times getting around but that's a real term that generally means a dictator who for the most part isn't just in it for themselves and they are trying to make things better for the people right but it depends on your perspective yeah exactly so like the ruling elite found him very threatening I think they would not have considered a benevolent at all right but like say the average plebeian would have been like I love Caesar yeah give me some more of the coins with his face on it yeah I mean followers of Castro still after his death say he was a benevolent dictator sure but again people say now it's perspective yeah it's a subjective term basically a Napoleon actually he came to power again like many dictators in a state of emergency and he was actually a benevolent dictator in a sense because he he did a lot of great things for awhile for the people right he was extremely popular yeah he was undefeated at the time that he rose to power he was appointed counsel and then he said you know what let's go look for that I'm gonna call myself emperor they said okay Napoleon what could possibly go wrong with that yeah well first he was named consul then he was like I think council for life has a better ring to it and then that wouldn't end up right so he's likely to shorten my like you said though he was super popular because he was he was undefeated as a military leader he balanced the budget you reform government he wrote the civil law which a lot of it is still around today in France yes of the law right not too bad he had a lasting impact for sure he did it again and again in two column benevolent if you're a member of parliament who write their own out of one of the windows of the parliament Rainey took over you probably wouldn't be like yourself in a right he also control had an iron thumb on the press he controlled every facet of government he added spies working for him right so it's not like and he wasn't just a you know Bozo the clown now officials in both both of the cloud of secrecy no if you put all that together though check you get the impression.

"charles w. chuck" Discussed on NewsRadio WIOD

"There's Charles W. Chuck Bryant there's Jerry over there and this is Chuck episode nine nine nine yeah well you know how I think of this I think of it is one thousand it just a big fat one thousand that had the leak under two days it let it actually leaked back in time how amazing is that yeah because we have to do a two parter because upon looking at this research and this topic very special topic for us for the show we realize it had to be a two parter and rather than do one thousand one thousand one we got a person would do that an unwholesome person yeah yeah okay so this is episode nine ninety nine in your view it's it's really just part of episode one thousand I'm with you on that yes can you believe that I know you know what chuckle up until today I could totally believe it but the the the fact that we're doing the Simpson's for a thousandth episode it just it drove everything home like all the gear teeth fell right into place and now the gears are spending in sync and I can feel it now I'm amazed yeah so we just wanted to acknowledge the one thousand here up front and I think frankly we're doing that because we're both so excited how you doing this I think it should tell people what you email earlier we were furiously sending links back and forth this week and you said I don't even want to record I just want to keep researching the Simpson's for ever his true man last night took I was sitting there watching Simpsons episode yeah and I thought well this is the pinnacle of my career I am literally being paid to watch The Simpsons yeah and we just had to stop like a bit we could have done this for weeks and researched and this could be the entire podcast into itself with a thousand episodes well maybe not the answer but close to it as a nine ninety eight but at some point we had to stop so just to know if we didn't cover your favorite thing from the show that's been on for thirty years or or if we're not referring to episodes under their specific naming convention yeah calm down via it's just impossible so we're gonna do our best here to talk about some of our favorite stuff and a little bit about how the show works but here we go right the old man let's do it this is like an actual intro yes those initial response so Chuck yes have you ever seen the Simpson I have Sir you call it back from the beginning like that was a real right in our wheel house maybe even yours a little more than mine yeah and I mean this we should go ahead and just talk for a moment about episode one yeah because I have a very distinct memory which is I'm in high school my senior year all right wrist button my friend and future roommate in college calls roots Booton and he says due to have you and I have to admit I did not see the Tracey Ullman shorts so let's get that out of the way right now they were bizarre yeah then this is that's where the show began as most people know as little short animated bits and the Tracey Ullman show but Crispin calls me and says man I'm coming over meet you in the basement open the back door I have the VHS of the show called The Simpsons you got to see it and he met me over there it was winter it was December well it aired on the seventeenth on the seventeenth but I have a feeling this was the next day probably and boot came over and we watched the very first episode which was sent as a helper and we cried tears of joy and laughter in my life went on a different course yeah I'd I'd and boots did not visit my house personally with the video we didn't call and boots but really okay well I'm calling to get him to the that's classic boots by the way here to show up in the basement so yeah but he he did not come to my house but I did see that one and I think I saw it when it aired actually nine I I remember watching the Tracey Ullman shorts to just be like what the hell is this yeah but then by the time I think it the Tracey Ullman show will get a little more into that one started in eighty seven in the actual show started in eighty nine so between those two points they really like it really started to come together to where that first episode where Homer finds out he's not getting a Christmas bonus yeah so he gets a job secretly as a mall Santa names of taking is check to the dog track in vetting at all and losing it all on Santa's little helper which was the dog right but then he ends up with Santa's little helper so he gets what he was after all along which is a great Christmas present for his face only right what a beautiful episode right yeah and interestingly that first episode was really that eight to one to be made but they ran that one first so there were there were some weird differences like the show actually originally I think my granny want thought it would be redrawn a little more slickly but they just traced over his original drawing so the animation was fairly crude in this episode and then you'll notice an episode to it actually looks a little bit better okay and you know the Simpson still looks like the Simpson's but that that early episode and kind of the whole first season was a little more crude check in drawing invoice in the pilot was the only episode missing that very famous opening sequence which we'll talk about a little bit later yeah wasn't like a cold opening or something like that I can't remember exactly how but it didn't feature the iconic meaning that we all know and love today get to so where shall we start Chuck I mean I guess we kind of just did start yeah and I think already steak wells in Israel however when the name of the episode it was Simpsons roasting on an open fire yeah so I mean come on this the one that you're you're talking about you know yeah but I'm just I know that like I know twenty five thousand people just slammed the laptop shut but that's what I'm saying everybody chill out there's a now with this episode is about we're not trying to show you how little you know right add the grab stir grabbing ask you wrote this article actually this one was written by on it grab announced give yes me why he said that because it was it wasn't like five times as long as it should have been no I can't remember who who calls himself that for every tree house of four but there's and and they call themselves on it so I thought that was I'm really surprised you didn't actually get that as his byline for this and I see strict there my friend and and then we did just I mean so much supplementary information it's sort of ridiculous yeah but this is like a special request from us wasn't yeah we said go forth grab stir and right to the well right the okay right well there to ease in the in the yeah yeah yeah yeah I sort of noticed by the fullers of your hand what you're saying all right so let's go back to Simpsons creator one Mister mac raining and we have actually met him and we will talk about that in a little bit yeah we will live highlight for sure sure but he had a comic strip called life in hell and I think the original conceit to pitch to producer James L. Brooks in nineteen eighty seven was a a cartoon version of that ed writes in here he thought it would be a failure but I read that he wasn't too keen on signing away sort of the thing he had worked on on with life so he changed his mind at the last minute and thought of The Simpsons that's awesome that sounds the second one sounds much more like Matt greening for sure yeah and he had he had no idea that would make him a super rich gazillion there either but if you if you know that story the fact that the Simpson started out on Tracy almond makes sense because James Brooks who himself is a pretty like bona fide cool guy right he cleared the Mary Tyler Moore show yeah let drone directed terms of endearment yeah he produced a bottle rocket yeah you could say has an eye for amazing things for sure so he adds come across this life in hell strip.
