"Hi, I'm Chris Kepler and welcome to disease happened to you I'm an actor voice actor audiobook narrator and writer I love telling and sharing stories about the strange experiences, my friends, and I have while doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies, a micro audio book about life and befuddle men just for you. Our story. This Week is from Jessica Wildfire who you'll find on medium dot com, and here is how did date someone with recurring dunning Kruger there everywhere. There's nothing more irritating than someone who thinks they're smarter than everyone else I would no I spent my twenties dating them. They still bragged about things like their sat scores being Valedictorian or spending a year as the editor of their highschool newspaper. You know if these remain your biggest accomplishments as a twenty, six year old, you're not exactly crushing it. We normally talk about dunning Kruger like it's a temporary phenomenon that can afflict anyone but we all know a few people who take up permanent residence on Mount Stupid. The word effect doesn't quite do the job here for them. It's more of a perennial state, a recurring condition. Sometimes, you just have to manage someone with perpetual dunning Kruger and minimize the damage they do. It's not a great blueprint for dating but if you'd like to give it a shot, here's a set of helpful tips they also work well, if you're friends with someone who's been kissed by Dunning Kruger. Don't forget to help them. They'll stop using their brain altogether they'll double down on doing something in the wrong way when someone has done in Kruger, you have to wait for them to come to you for help. Let them make a huge mess someone with dunning Kruger doesn't like to be warned about things. They think instructions are for idiots. They think cautions are for everyone but them they know what they're doing until they don't you can't stop someone like this from making a huge mess. Even if it spills over into your life, you have to let them screw up trying to stop them only makes the situation worse though get angry they'll get defensive they'll quit listening to you. Never. Say I told you so. Some people don't have the capacity to accept responsibility for their mistakes. Even if they do, you can't prompt them to take ownership and apologize either they will or they won't reminding them of the advice they ignored triggers their alternative reality machine. They'll make up a story where somehow you were the one who caused all the problems. This is counterproductive. Clean up their mess for them. Honestly it's the only way to deal with it, making them clean it up. We'll use the result in an even bigger mess. Don't stress yourself out more by trying to hold someone accountable if they can't act like a mature adult if someone made a mess in your life, you have to be the one to clean up..

"Hi. I'm Chris Kepler and welcome to does this happened to you I'm an actor voice actor audiobook narrator and writer. I. Love telling and sharing stories about the strange experiences, my friends, and I have while doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies, a micro audio book about life and befuddle men just for you. Our story. This week is from white feather who you'll find on medium DOT COM and here is rabbits children and an old man, the makings of a world movement. It has been around two months since I first started incorporating earth thing into my early morning spiritual practices. It has been a game changer. The results have far exceeded my world as expecations. But I have already elucidated the mechanics, meeting importance and benefits of Earth. Ding. Grounding in a few previous posts. So I will not reiterate instead I just want to share to incidents that happened over the last week during pre dawn earthling. My favorite place to go for Irving has become the expansive lawns in front of the elementary school a block away from where I live not only is there plenty of grass to walk barefoot on but there are some lovely trees for hugging another powerful form of grounding the place. Also, Ford's a halfway decent view of the sunrise at this particular time of year. As it gets the school I take off my flip flops and hold them in my hand as I begin walking barefoot on the grass I walk in a large loopy clockwise circular pattern around the lawn a few times stopping to hug all the trees. If anyone is watching I'm sure they must think that I'm a mental patient recently escaped from the closest mental institution. Thankfully, it's very early in the morning before sunrise and there are not many people out and about. I will then stop in either of a couple perfect spots and drop the flip flops on the ground as they do some meditation I do this twice once facing the moon if it is still in the sky and once facing the horizon where the sun comes up, I try to feel the planet under my naked feet as intensely as I can meditating well, barefoot on the ground outdoors is approximately eight.

This week we continue with the Oh my God series by the drunken cyclist who you'll find on wordpress and here is. Boom goes the microphone. I have been to Brussels at least a dozen times I guess, but the extent of each of those visits has been confined to the train stations of Belgium's capital city. On a lucky occasion. It wouldn't evolve writing usually with haste from one station Centrale to another me D, but the Daesh through the city left little time to take any of it in which is too bad since Brussels. Sell in French is both an international city and. City. The two languages spoken French and English are to with which I have an above average familiarity today however was not a day to ponder whether I had time to take a brief detour into the city I had no time nor to contemplate the role that language played in perhaps the most international city in Europe. It is the de facto European capital, although though my adoptive home of Strasbourg France might have an argument to the contrary. No I had to get my key. Stir to the next town Roche, for whom to what many consider. One of the Best Beers in the world, Roche fourteen, being a wine snob I say this with the utmost respect. Beer Aficionados are idiots. They're fairly easy to identify. They either have a t shirt was some obscure beer logo and untucked flannel or pledge shirt or a Canadian flag somewhere on their person. Okay, calling all Beer Aficionados, idiots might be a bit harsh, but I made a simple correlation. Since Oh my God love beer and he was also an idiot. All those who love beer must also be idiots, pretty sound reasoning. There're many though that would claim that West Flay in twelve is the best in the world, but based on a blind taste test I did a few years prior I am not so sure. Let's just agree that Belgium produces many great beers, and that the monks at Roche four are among the best and truth be told I love many a Belgian beer and I do not consider myself an idiot, but I am not Canadian, either Sawai might be exempt from the above assertion. Anyway that was a goal. Get to Roche for early enough to grab a beer in the shadow of the Abbey and still make it to pause and to bear in time for a pre dinner beer.

I have no excuse from my prolonged absence well. I have several but i'm not sure any are particularly persuasive. Persuasive dental health is important. At least that's what big dentist wants us to believe so i should get over my fear of making appointment phone calls and they share annoyance of having to physically go somewhere. That's outside my normal routine. I usually can get over those obstacles eventually but there's one thing about going to the dentist that i just can't stand my main quibble. Would dentis isn't the physical discomfort or awkwardness of having a hand stuck in my mouth for an hour so it's the constant gripped since i moved away from my small hometown and end very lovely dentist owned father-son dental practice.

"Might i'm chris keppler and welcome to disease happen to you. Oh i'm an actor voice actor audiobook narrator and writer. I love tilling and sharing stories about the strange experiences. My friends and i have well well doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies a micro audio book about life in befuddle men just for you our story. This week is from nikki kaye. Who you'll find on medium dot com tom and here is i accidentally got drunk at the doctor's office. It only hit me as i was driving home. I was sixteen eighteen years old. I had my own car a little boxy nineteen eighty five four door. I'd bought from cousin for two hundred and fifty bucks. It had a c._d. C._d. player installed in the daesh. A pack of cigarettes tucked into the sun visor and a checkbook and the glove box. I had a pocketful of waitressing money not a pager with half a dozen interchangeable cases and a boyfriend who is teaching me spanish. I was headed to college soon. Life was mostly going my way. It didn't feel so great. Though when i was doubled over from the stabbing pain in my abdomen it had been going on intermittently unpredictably for months and i tried everything i take in psych meds and aunt acids. I'd had an upper endoscopy and a gastric emptying study. Nothing seemed to be the problem. The doctor suspected maybe had some mild reflux but in order to confirm. I needed to undergo something. He called a ph probe study. It sounded innocent enough. A probe was sent up the nose and swallow down the esophagus. It sat there for a day monitoring the area just above the stomach opening to see if acid was backing up through the spink muscle and then the next day it was removed and the results were analyzed sign me up. I said i was desperate for some answers. When i arrived at the doctor's office on on the morning of the appointment my mother was already sitting in the waiting room. It was seven o'clock and the place was deserted. There were no other patients. No receptionist not even any doctors. My mom needed to sign the consent for me but she needed to be at work early. So we'd both driven our own cars and mom would go to work work while i drove back home no big deal. The nurse introduced herself with a smile nothing to eat or drink after midnight. She asked me. I nodded it. Okay very good. She said and handed my mother and me. Each clipboard clipped onto mine was a four page intake form while moms uh-huh had a simple one line consent form essentially a permission slip for the simple procedure that was to follow she signed and then hugged me goodbye. I leaving me to fill out the rest of the redundant and exhausting forms. There should really be a computer system for this. I thought trying to keep my eyes from glazing glazing over when the nurse took me into the room. She first asked me to drink the contents of small plastic cup. This is the same stuff that the dentist gives you to number mouth before giving you a feeling she explained novacaine. I ask light o'kane. Actually she corrected directed in your throat. So it's more comfortable. I nodded and then shrugged knocking back the foul tasting liquid after a few minutes the nurses i was ready to begin. She answered the probe up through my nose and i could feel it sliding backwards and then curving around down the back of my throat. She gave me a glass of water water and asked me to drink it as she maneuvered the probe into position. The swallowing helps it go down. She said i thought i was doing doing well until appropriate. Just the right spot and hurt the lighter. Cain water came right back up all over that sweet nurses lap. Maybe some more or light cane i offered and maybe we'll just keep the trash can close by. She responded with a tight smile. We tried twice more each time after a gulp of light arcane and a five minute wait each time the probe got to my epa gladys and my gag reflex like said new thanks eventually we threw in the towel the figurative one and also the little one the nurse had given me to cover my lap. I left disappointed but not much worse for the wear. She'd had it worse than i had for sure. I buckled into my twelve year old car and pulled out of the a parking lot. The office was in the city and it was rush hour. I wasn't used to driving on the highway especially this far south but i was a good and conscientious consciencious young driver and i wasn't worried i turn my head over my left shoulder merge onto the highway and caught a glimpse of a seventy mile per hour tractor trailer coming coming towards me. Just before everything went black. I swung my head back ford and blinked nothing. I took my foot off the gas hoping to actually i don't know what i hope to accomplish not to get hit by a tractor trailer going seventy miles per hour guess i- angled the car to what i judged to be a safe line as my vision gradually came back and somehow i safely merged behind the big truck my fingernails dug into my poems homes around the steering wheel. I took a few depress trying to figure out what to do next. My eyesight cleared mercifully but all it revealed was a sea of cars all traveling nearly bumper to bumper at highway speeds. There was no shoulder pull onto. I had no way to call for help. Nope even if i did pull over fat lot of good my pager did me with all its translucent colors with the infinite wisdom of a sixteen year old. I decided i needed to just stay the course and refrain from making any sudden moves it was still a long drive home and i stayed in the right lane cruising cruising along just at the speed limit using all my strength to hold my eyes opened. Keep my eyes straight ahead. I took note of the exit signs as they came up up each and indicator that i was getting closer to home without catastrophe. It was these curious white on green signs which gave me yet another another indication that though i was still conscious i was most definitely not okay. Each time i read an exits name i would burst out uncontrollable giggles at the curiosity of the word parvin. I said to myself par van the clerk almo. I said in a deep movie announcer voice like homo clay co lo oh. When did the xs around here. It's so weird is ahead. I reminded myself but then i saw a new sign pleasant valley i saying oh that's the soothing name pleasant hey nikki. I think you're drunk said a voice from somewhere inside my head. I never been drunk before. Never even had an alcoholic beverage before has a matter of fact and of course as an unaccompanied driver with no oh so phone. I was unable to confirm my suspicion my best guest though was that drinking so much lighter kane on an empty stomach had gotten to my head head once again i judged that the best thing to do would be to just keep deriving north and get home as quickly and safely as possible especially now that i was in familiar territory i gave myself a figurative slap in the face and kept my opinions to myself for the rest of the ride which which became easier as the exit turned from unusual words to rural highway numbers with exception of quick chuckle when i got to sixty nine highway. I managed to make it to the house in one piece. I called my mother from our landline to let her know i'd gotten home and that i hadn't gotten the probe and that the nurse i had inadvertently got me wasted before driving me home. We laughed about it dismissing it as a curious incident for reasons. I can't fathom adam. We didn't notify anyone about what had happened. We had nearly forgotten about the incident and my ill advised choices. Along the way when an envelope derived from the doctor's office inside was the check. My mother had left for the ten dollar co-pay since i never ended up getting the probe. They never cashed to check to this day. I contend that they should have given the ten dollars and then some sweet patient nurse for her trouble. Thanks so much for listening.

"Hi, I'm Chris Kepler. And welcome to does this happen to you. I'm an actor voice actor audiobook, narrator and writer, I love tilling and sharing stories about the strange experiences. My friends, and I have well doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features. Funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies. A micro audio book about life in befuddling just for you. Our story this week is from John Fisher who you'll find on medium dot com. And here is ten ways to spot a germaphobe. Maybe you will find out you're one of us at MIT it. I am a high functioning mainstream germaphobe not the clinically diagnosed type that won't leave the house like Bill Murray's character in. The movie what about Bob, I don't wear a face mask when I travel in public. I play sports shake hands ride public transportation and even sometimes eat at a salad bar if it looks very clean while I don't consider my germaphobe a major psychosis. I do have my issues since we inhabit this planet together. Let me share several techniques we germaphobe us to avoid contamination. And explain what is going through our heads in the process. It may help you relate to us better. Or maybe you will find out your one of us. It is important to understand in everything. We do we see the potential for infection, especially in public places. A high functioning germaphobe goal is to minimize risk without it being obnoxiously obvious here. Ten ways you can spot us in the wild indicator. One of version two handles and knobs a high functioning germaphobe will open doors, but we'll look for the least likely point of public contact. Here is our decision Trie in order of desireability what it comes to opening doors, especially in public places. A us a foot, latch, if available be follow someone in or out using your shoulder or arm to keep door open. See use paper towel or tissue to grab handle de touch the door at a point much higher than the. Handle out of reach of that snotty nosed kid e if we must touch a handle or knob us as minimal contact as possible a pinkie finger or maybe the last two fingers never the index or the thumb when faced with the last choice, we find our way to hand sanitizer as soon as possible, which leads us to indicate or two. Indicator to washing hands like a surgeon when it is time to wash hands we really wash our hands a to germaphobe will never pass on any opportunity to wash hands or use hand sanitizer. We're the ones that are actually waiting for the water to get hot before we start washing. We are lathering the soap up and washing all the way to the forearm. If we were wearing scrubs. You would probably assume we were a doctor getting up for surgery when we can't be at the sink. We will pump the hand sanitizer in generous amounts. Even when we have a bad paper cut. We still go for it. We just take the pain indicators three palming our pills, we use the INTERPOL method palms are least likely to have touched anything else. This may be less obvious to the non germaphobe. I first of all we never ask someone for a pill. We. We asked for the bottle of pills. We will be the ones to handle the pill. Thank you. When we opened the bottle of Ivy profile we tapped the tablets into the middle of our palm. Then using the middle of our palm we popped them into our mouth why? Because the middle of the palm is less likely to touched anything than the fingers themselves. Think about it. When did your very inner poem, less touch. Something you had to think didn't you indicator for the infamous arm grip when standing on a train or subway, we use our inner elbow to hold onto that middle bar. There are few things on earth more toxic to a germaphobe than the metal bars on any form of public transportation. Who knows what is on that bar, and how many sticky and gunky hands have touched that today. It's not like they stopped to clean, it inbetween rides people coming in and out. All day for all. We know. They have typhoid the elbow Methodist quite simple latte. Your arm around the bar from the outside. Squeeze inner elbow tightly around bar, hang on for dear life. It actually can be a nice bicep workout now that we've taught this technique. You will notice it more. Indicator. Five the elbow, shake we shake hands when we must. But when there is a hint of illness presented we offer the elbow shake. Speaking of elbows, the elbow shake is becoming a thing you offer out. You're right, elbow and the other party does the same. The point of elbows touching provides a friendly connection that only looks like two chicken wings hitting each other and no germs look around. You'll see it more than you think. When the other party doesn't quite understand the elbow shake. We will of course. Correct. Into a solid handshake. And then make sure that our right hand doesn't touch anything until we find a way to wash it is top of mind unto we find a sink or hand sanitizer, which is a staple in our purse or backpack. If offered a snack before we've resolved this will either abstain or in the case of Chuck. Flett will eat left-handed indicators six the dining dilemma, we try very hard. Not to think about what happens in the kitchen as high functioning germaphobe, we still eat out. We just have learned to create a barrier of thought between the food utter table. And where it was prepared. The mind is a powerful tool, and we use a type of meditation to keep certain thoughts out. We just imagined that everything was prepared with the highest sanitation in mind knives and bulls were thoroughly washed employees hands were washed exactly as described on the sign in the bathroom the produce vendor. That day didn't drop the tomatoes on the floor. The cook doesn't have a cold. You get the idea we hope for the best in our minds and make that our reality. We would never ever take a job working at a restaurant in order to maintain our naievety

"Hi. I'm Chris Kepler. And welcome to does this happen to you. I'm an actor voice actor audiobook, narrator and writer, I love tilling and sharing stories about the strange experiences. My friends that I have while doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features. Funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies. A micro audio book about life in befuddling just for you. Our story this week is from John devore who you'll find on medium dot com. And here is how to manage millennials leadership. Requires patients understanding and excellent communication skills. Welcome to my internet article on managing the lineal 's if you're a supervisor or a team leader, you have probably encountered the so called millennial generation at the office. But who is a millennial basically, it's any. Person who you think is younger than you are now, according to the US bureau of labor statistics millennials will comprise seventy five percent of the workforce by twenty thirty by that date, of course, society will have collapsed and most of the jobs will be in the cannibalism industry. But until then this generation will continue to be managed by pupil. Who are I miss cassette tapes years old or older the best way to manage millennials is to listen to them. And then whisper I fear death in my experience as a manager. I have found the truth is always preferable to corporate jargon. So I guess you can say I tell it like it is here's a fun little anecdote a millennial co-worker once asked me if I needed help completing an important deck before a departmental presentation. And I said I. I am a complete and utter fraud in short, inspire, your direct reports with shockingly personal truce like how you don't really know. What an Oxford comma is or that you frequently sit in the office stairwell and cry remind them that it's never too late to tell the people in your life that you love them. And that HR is lying when they say were all family during all hands meetings of family can't lay off a member. And then while they're in shock bully them into signing, an ironclad NDA, just because you're mentoring a younger person doesn't mean you can't connect with them in an authentic way. Remember, you two were younger than you are now, and when you were younger, you were also full of hope like a bright colorful birthday balloon, slowly deflating when I'm asked who my management inspirations are usually reply. The ghost of Christmas yet to come. If one of them lines'll who are managing fails to complete their tasks on time acts rudely towards you or their colleagues or otherwise underperforms that their job, you should take a moment and ask yourself is this person failing because they're a millennial the answer to that question. Obviously is no there are manifold reasons employees don't measure up, but one of those reasons is not demographics. No matter what internet articles or marketers say don't forget that millennials are just like you or me and are not empty spaces. You can feel with your fears and prejudices one thing, you should know if you're like me and your find yourself collaborating with younger workers on projects where you are one hundred percent accountable is that even a twenty three year old in this culture. Feels old. I can't tell you how many times I've heard a colleague say. I'm turning twenty three. And that is so old take my advice. Do not respond. I'm limping because I ran three steps to make a train. No just pretend you didn't hear them as if the ravages of age have sealed your ear shut the tech industry, especially prizes youth. And there are many reasons for that. For instance, most venture capital fund managers are vampires. They are quite literally ancient beasts of the night who live off of young fresh blood. Another reason Silicon Valley openly discriminates against people who are middle aged or older is that decaying bodies, our gross and slow. I am a late stage career worker at forty four. And while my days managing employees in their twenties and thirties, we'll soon be over. I do look forward to living the next

My friends and I have while doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features. Funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies. A micro audio book about life in befuddling just for you this week. We have a double header from Sarah Lofgren, you'll find more stories from Sarah on medium in. You'll also find her on Twitter Instagram and red bubble. And we're starting out with inspirational quotes from realist because the sunshine. Bullshit doesn't always bring it home. Do get a sinking feeling in your stomach when you read the standard array of inspirational quotes, things like the only. Way to grow is. To immerse yourself in both sunshine and rain and believe in your dreams believe in your dreams believe in your dreams. Do you want to punch a flower after reading that? Are you the human manifestation of angry panda, perhaps? It's because you know, relentless optimism is just a tool of capitalism to keep you emptying your pockets. Perhaps it's because you know, inspiration is just a carrot dangling in front of your donkey nostrils. This article is for you. I've adjusted a few popular quotes to balance them out and make them more reflective of the world, we live in our greatest glory is not in never falling. But in rising every time we full until the day. We fall and decide it isn't worth rising over and over again, if we're just going to keep falling and bruising ourselves on that day. Our greatest glory becomes eating all. The Doritos in the house while we lie on the floor Confucius and Sarah relatable. All our dreams. Can come true. If we have the courage to pursue them. Even if our dreams are things like robbing a Taco Bell or racing small children against each other for money. The only dream that can't be accomplished via courage is getting first place on rainbow road when we play against the computer at two hundred CC so try not to make that your dream Walt. Disney and Sarah, Walt Disney was a wise, man. Just not wise enough to complete this, quote, even geniuses need a little help believe in yourself. You are braver than you think more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine unless you are in narcissist in which case, you ain't all that ROY t Bennett, and Sarah what everyone who has run into a nurse. Assist knows. This is true. Inspirational, quote, should always have caveats it makes him less than sparring. But more accurate hard times, don't create heroes. It is during the hard times. When the hero within us is revealed. How does this occur your skin folds back around your mid region, exposing your innards and the hero living inside of you? Leaps out with a flaming sword. This will kill you. Bob, Reilly, and Sarah. Fortunately, my life hasn't been that hard. So I haven't had to undergo this process, please send money so I can remain content in my cowardice. Your mind is a powerful thing when you fill it with positive thoughts. Your life will start to change your life will also change. If you join my team and start selling these mystical beans, I've developed the starter pack is only six hundred dollars, and you can easily make that up in one week because these baby sell themselves. Let me tell you unknown, and Sarah, also if you have leadership skills, you can make even more money by recruiting other like-minded individuals to be part of your team. You have a lot of natural charisma. I can tell you're going to be really good at this. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams unless they die. Then it will belong to those who are motivated through fear of their nightmares. My nightmares are about fuzzy clowns. And I will do anything to prevent them from coming. True. Franklin D Roosevelt and Sarah. Inspirational figures, forget that fear can be tremendously motivating they go on and on about dreams encourage but forget to mention that most of us are scared. Stiff all the time. And that is okay scared people can build the future too, especially if they kill all the people who believe in the beauty of their dreams. I am not a product of my circumstances.

"Bud Light countdown to kickoff live at Felix's restaurant and bar five to seven o'clock this evening, and Steve we know every single week. Everybody's nervous about something. You and I always are nervous minis in here. So what makes you about? Today's game yourself. Nervous mini. I am. I get a little nervous for these games, man. But everybody's what makes you chicken here about today's game. Brought to you by crispy crunchy chicken. I guess just really the sort of the obvious. I mean, I guess a couple of things I I if we can't sort of. Limit cousins somewhat from from his passing game. I mean, really he is. Michael tell you I said earlier used to destroy the stirs the drink for this offense. There's no question. The decisions. He's makes our our terrific. And then obviously he's able to pull it off. He's got a lot of good guys to to throw the ball to. So if we can't somehow slow him down, or at least get some shots on him to where he starting to think about getting hit before he's throwing the football over the place. It's going to turn into a track. Meet I mean 'cause he's doing his best drew Brees imitation. And I think that we need to sort of slow that down. Now, the thing is important. If you look at the Vikings defense to they're great on on getting teams off the field. I mean, they just I I think they're number one in the league and in three three and outside things and looked at third downs going to be imperative for us today. There's no question. So that means that really have to do some good things and first and second down to make these third downs. Gettable? So I think in doing that. I think if we kind manage both those things then obviously the things that you always talk about each and every week like no turnovers and knock on wood. We've been we've been pretty good at that up to this juncture, so look defensively I think if we display the way that we've played in the last couple of weeks as far as being able to sort of play that disciplined kind of gap defense. Mush rush that guy because he's he's crafty in the pocket, but if we kind of get up to field, and and they've got some guys that are next on that offensive line to and they're they're pretty good. But they're not they're not as good as our offense one. We should be able to get some pressure on him. And I think, you know, the development of Davenport, and those guys and what they've done lately they're starting to you can tell that they're starting to really kinda like this pressure that they're they're able to manufacture lately. And so we do that. And then hopefully with the addition of our new guy that you know, maybe some things will happen force there in the secondary part of it. But I I kind of like the way they were were sitting at this at this juncture there were hit on all cylinders. So I'll have a lot to be checking about, but I guess if I had sort of pick something it'd be sort of seen from we can limit cousins and his ability to be so prolific with the football. Yeah. I'm kind of in lockstep with you there Kirk cousins and makes me all sorts of nervous for the saints defense. But I'll go with the receivers in that passing game here and Adam feeling for my money right now the best receiver. In the game. He's on pace to set the receptions record. He's got sixty seven through seven games. She's on pace for nearly nineteen hundred yards over ten touchdowns. And he's avenue a historic season here, and it's not a fluke. I mean, he was good last year. Everybody talks about Stefan digs and certainly because of that catch. But feeling is the guy that this offense skill. He is he's yeah. You watch him. And he he reminds me a lot of Michael Thomas. I mean, he's that kind of physical kind of guy, and he any not only that. But he gets a step on your he's gone. He's he's fast as he can be kind of like a shorter version of a Jordy Nelson. A little bit, you know. But that kind of doesn't drop anything. I mean, the guy Nelson played in the slot to. But but you are you're right. And and look he's he's he's number one target is no question. Digs is a great players in a question, and he can gets behind you. And you can you can hurt you bad just like any of them can. But. I don't know. What's Rudolf standard status is as of today? But the tight end can be an issue for us before. So we'll make sure that we get like tomorrow on him or somebody like that they can run it ends alone or somebody that's sort of being able to sort of cover him and run with him. You know, it's not a great match up for the saints defense because they're so good against the run. And and the Viking slick, they're they're not very good run the football. They don't wanna sling on all over the place, and they're going to be slinging it all over the place against the defense that has given up a lot on the back end. Well, look early on because they'll do what I see teams do to us early on when they know that we're going to get sorta get heat on them. They start throwing that stuff to the boundary early on to see if they can sort of slowing down a little bit. And they start throwing those bubble passing. Those naked and things like that. And then again, they'll see it. They can get some over commitment. And they'll cousins is great at roll out. I mean does a naked boots and stuff all the time. He's he's great at that little mini little shot. He's just he's extremely athletic. And he's got a great arm, and he's accurate as hell. So it's problem back in sixty seconds.
