Yeah, No. So there you go, man. After that speech, By the way, would you be so quick to accept the gift? I'm just asking. I'm just asking. How do we know it's been sterilized? Who knows what's on that child? He's just sitting there. You know, He's a little kid. Butch. Butch is a kid, right? Don't forget Paulie. The just the visceral reaction. You had two the first time you saw Pulp fiction, and I walked out of that movie theater like that. That was one of the most insane experiences I've ever had in the movie theater. The whole place was going crazy when I saw that. Honest to goodness. Yeah. It was like he'd seen Pulp Fiction in the theater was like an event I'd have to rack my brain to think of a movie that blew my mind. More than Pulp Fiction did And my immediate reaction was I got to come back and see that within days set multiple times. And there was this this scene with Stultz and a magic marker and given to the adrenaline shot UMA Thurman. I mean that whole bit The place was going crazy. The theater was screaming. It was not everything. Well, Sue, there's a social media, so you didn't know what to expect. I mean, I heard a little bit of buzz, but you went in. You truly got blown away because you didn't know it was coming. I have to remember that one of the guy who I went to that movie with my buddy Sean. I don't mention this guy very often one of my jersey guys and he was a big He was already a big Tarantino fan before I even really knew about him like he was in the reservoir dogs and that whole scene where they're talking like the opening scene, a reservoir I was really talking about Madonna and the true meaning of like a virgin, which is a classic piece of dialogue. But with this guy, my buddy was there already in. He was all in. He's like, dude, this guy's great. This movie is gonna be great, but I personally Merv, I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I was like, totally caught off guard. And so I remember. So Mike Silver was subdued. Yeah, you got it. Silver When I just started working at the press Democrat in Silver was a columnist of the first Democrat and got hired by Sports Illustrated, which is unheard of that you make a leap from the Santa Rosa Press Democrat to Sports Illustrated and we won't have a farewell party for him. All the guys were gonna come down and silver lived in Oakland at the time, and most every was in Santa Rosa. Somebody agreed to go to San Francisco. And they asked Mike, What do you want to do? You know for your farewell, you know, he said, I want us all to go see Pulp fiction. That's how big a deal was back then. Totally, like great idea. And even though we had all seen it, it was like 11 guys from the office, and we all went in watch Pulp fiction on the on the movie Theater on Union Street. Polly used what's called out? I've been there kind of boat. What's the Metro? The votes? Something I don't remember? Yeah, but I know the joint, so we went out for like a burger and a beer. We all went supple Fisher. Mike's like, Thank you guys. The best farewell. I could imagine watch Pulp fiction. I don't know that we've had a movie like that. Since where you've had like that The world was like an actual events Going in Star Wars was like that when we were kids, too, is like an event. Pulp Fiction was an event, but I don't know, Coach. What's the event type film of your lifetime? Like you're a pulp fiction were It was like you had to be in the theater. This is tough. This is tough to say. There hasn't been enough because my whole life like every big movies, an event like I'm over the age where people are lining up at midnight every time a movie comes out in costume. Every movie's interview. Yeah, but when you were in the theater, did it deliver that just like you made tell you for sure. The dark Knight the first the second Christian Bale Batman movie, the Dark Knight aside and I Max theater, and people were going nuts. That's a good one people going insane, and I saw that 15 times and theater. Nice how that must've been crazy. But somebody thought I started the I Max out the Metreon. And it was nuts. Because that opening scene is like panning over the city of Gotham. It starts with that bank robbery and you're walking in behind Heath Ledger. You're making me want to see this. It's a great movie that one for me, wasn't it? Vampire teeth ledger we're talking about. I'm a bad man fans. So that says a little different, but I think like now he get the star Wars and I remember I wouldn't say revenge of the Sith when I was a sophomore in high school and people were lined up with Nick Face paint on and stuff s. Oh, yeah, right. But then it's the Metro on Union Street. Thank you for 15, the Metro. There you go. Yeah, but those stars, we would understand the pre hyping the dress up. But once you're in the theater, it's not as epic as As as the pre hype and I don't like you're saying the Dark knight were the hope fiction. The movie. It wasn't even about like lining up. It wasn't about dressing in costume. It was the actual giving. Actually, the movie itself was so original and mind blowing that I don't think there's a cop to it. But also I'm just talking about like the way that the audience in the building reacts to. What's going on in here is an example because Murph like You said, I also saw Pulp fiction in the theaters multiple times. I don't even remember how many times But it was a bunch and I remember one of the times I went to go see it during the scene where? Um, Wilma Thurman and John Travolta. They're dancing the winning that contest the dance contest. I'm not kidding. You did as that scene was happening. A couple got up from their seats and started dancing in the aisles. Well, then I guess you get into Rocky horror, right? That kind of thing. That kind of thing. You just don't see everybody, by the way. He just sort of sort of quickly here in the field where we have the build up was fun, and we were excited about it. I remember seeing it at midnight and probably in a in a different state of mind. Dude, Pineapple Express people went more good. One good scene in that theater. When I saw that this whole thing started because I said I will give you a shiny watch piece. If you could tell me more about the magic coaches. That's right now. Just asking. Do you really want that gift? Do you remember? But yes, Wait. Say again. Come to do you remember when? Remember when the coach was with the coach? G? I told you the name five minutes ago..

"Thanks, Jeff. It's coming up on 12 minutes after eight on the Mike McConnell shut. Mike is in for Bill Cunningham. Today. Noon to three. So hang on. You can talk to Mike. He's rested. He slept in noon to 33 hours of Mike McConnell. Kevin Carr, one of our fat guys in the movies on Friday. Good morning, Kevin. How are you? Good morning. I'm doing well. How are you doing today? Good. It's kind of like drama weekend on the new movies here, isn't it? Yeah, You know, it's funny, because even though it's Christmas time, and you expect the warmhearted, wonderful stuff, you also have a Bean award season And that's when you get the sort of more dramatic, you know, heart wrenching. Serious Ville. Yeah, Let's start with wonder Darkly. Tell me about this. Yeah, This one starts Sienna Miller as a woman who in our boyfriend get in a car crash and it causes her to go through. Sort of like this flashback through the rest of her life. You don't know whether she's living or dead or whether What's gonna happen to her after the crash, But you see her sort of re evaluating the key points in her life that her boyfriend eyes also there so she can have a communicating with him about it, and they go back and deconstruct the relationship. It was an interesting idea and well acted. My biggest problem is she doesn't I? I realize I don't particularly like her as a person. She's Not somebody I'd want to spend time with and our boyfriends not much better. And so it just reiterates the fact that as I go to the movie, it just reinforces the fact that I don't like spending time with these people in the afterlife or the before life. So why would I care what happens to you know they've character development in the movies. They're all right. It looks like Christopher. Yeah, that's what you always run into it. You have too much character development with characters You don't like sure. Absolutely. Christopher Walken, Jon Hamm. I believe in the drama, Wild Mountain thyme. Yeah, This one is a romance sort of drama takes place in Ireland about these two families that have these adjoining farms and how they've dealt with stuff over the years. The main stories about Jamie Dornan, who's Christopher walking son and Emily Blunt to is the daughter who lives on the adjoining farm. They've always had feelings for each other, but never Had the courage to get past her egos to accept it, or to even the mention it to each other. It's Ah then, of course, Christopher Walken's character is wanting to sell the farming maybe wants to give it to the toe, one of his cousins who lives in America, which causes a little bit of a rift. It's directed and written by John Patrick Shanley, who did Movies like he did. He wrote the original Moonstruck and doubt. So he's a well respected writer. And while it has some interesting stuff, too, in his beautifully shot, you know, of course, the average countryside It takes a little bit too long for people to get over their insecurities and their personal problems, although it is kind of fun to watch Christopher Walken trying to hack through an Irish bro throughout the film. All right, one more another drama for this weekend. Nomad land. It's this is limited runs, right? Yeah, This isn't limited release. It's another one. That's definitely for the award circuit. It starts Frances McDormand as a woman who has kind of not really gonna homeless but house list. She lives out of her van. And she does, like sort of seasonal work and goes to these nomadic communities that exists out west with other people who are in caravans and that sort of thing. It's It's um, a spotlight on a real aspect of society and a real group of people who sort of live off the grid and outside of the normal mainstream on it's kind of her. Doing a labor of love to shine a light on this group of people, So it's It's interesting and it has some good acting to it, but it is definitely not your normal mainstream movie. Eyes are. Is there any more Blockbuster's so to speak for the rest of this calendar year? Are we done with all those? Well, we've got a couple big ones.

the outdoor motor and then just go to Linda price is what he said in his memoir yeah Robert Wagner when young well he's lying yeah can I tell you what is there I can in eight memoir Robert Wegner world wrote that he in walking hadn't argument that night Natalie disappeared and that walk and went to bed first it was a while later after it calm down that he noticed that would and the yachts Danny were both missing yeah he said nothing and he was never formally interviewed and even the corner at the original in nineteen eighty one he didn't mention about all the bruising she had on her arms and legs and he said but it was probably sustained at the time of drew a drowning when they read and open the investigation the coroner is like No Ole and the changed her I heard they change their head death at to accidental drowning but the story that came out when she died is that she was so wasted she just fell in and drowned and Robert Wagner did not do anything to dispel that her legacy Julia has been stained by Robert Wagner who I mean come on in he knew what he did he's just lying to himself he's an actor and he's lying to himself and then he goes on you know he's raising the kids I mean these the kids are like I mean her cat your kids and I mean she's blamed for her own death and her legacy is an actress is not really she never got her in her do because it's like she's been stained because this was like she was so wasted they released her blood alcohol level instead of like going okay why didn't you do this call anybody why didn't anybody call anybody

tussling how do you know he didn't show up for her he hit her head and then she fell overboard and he just stood there is why do you know that he didn't leave that area a goal and cool off in a different area and when he came back because she's got Dennis Davern has said that's the last time he saw the two of them and that Robert Wagner came up and he said she's missed scene and then later

'Borderlands 3' voice actor turned down role because Gearbox ‘wouldn’t go union’
"One on the report why Troy Baker isn't in borderlands three this is Kirk Kirk mckean over vg twenty four seven. If you remember we're of course do this whole Brouhaha for months. Now Randy Pitchford was asked on twitter. Hey is going to be reese. Randy said no troy turned down in Troy. I didn't turn it down. You guys said No. There's been back and forth. It's been ugly here's Kirk at VGA twenty four seven. We recently got a chance to talk to Baker during a fan event for wrestler replay. Let's play series the actor host alongside the other Troy Baker Nolan north. I love that during our chat he was openly disappointed that he didn't get a chance to play reese again in Borderlands Orlands three quote so they came to me and they were like do you want to do this. Baker explained which I said absolutely and then they made it impossible for me to do the role. It had nothing to do with money money. It had nothing to do. It had nothing to do with money. It had nothing to do with money. They just simply would not go about doing it the way that we needed to be done so then it it was like I never said no gosh I I worry Detroit. No he was talking to a reporter. It sounds like he's had a retro replay thing with Guinness just sitting there talking we we asked Baker to clarify what he meant by this scheduling conflicts or something else quote no it was simply a matter that they wouldn't go union. He replied and I can't do a non union union GIG without getting too deep into the weeds of that we had long conversations about this. We always knew going into it that this was going to be the thing they're gonNa take these characters and put them from put them from the tales from the series from telltale into Borland's proper. I've been waiting for this call. They were like do you want to do this and I said yes. They never they never because they would never move from that position. I'm not mad is invariably a complicated different. I'm sorry it's invariably a completely different different character but it's still sings stings fuck. It's hard to read quotes that are like just talking yeah. When it's a prepared quote we all go this garbage quote or a written word in general but when Choi's they're they're doubling up sentences over jabbing now the fun little kind of funny thing that we can do that but I want? I was going to bring in Chad's question because I think there's interesting. relation dossier Chad wrote in to Patriot dot com slash Kinda Funny Games says morning folks with the reveal this morning that Baker as a sack after member couldn't minute reprise his role of reese in Borland's three because gearbox wouldn't go union. Do you think this is something we'll see more of. Do you think this now becoming such a high profile story will before the hands of publishers to allow voice actors to unionize. I also wonder how often this happens. Considering it took one of if not the most popular voice actors sorry known to to make a headline that said I love the solitary solidarity intrigue continues to demonstrate that he is one of the kindest humans lot also. Let Your Voice Actors Union is Randy what the fuck cheers so yes. I already know where you're going with. This is an interesting story. If you all remember we hear kind of funny didn't animated series called kind of funny the animated series in episode one principal Christopher Walken it was played by Donna Troy Baker and the idea of course is that that'd be reoccurring character throughout throughout the entire run of the animated series well on top of that he was going to play two characters. He was gonNA play the principal. He was also gonNA play Troy who was like the Guy Oh I do. Remember who was a character in the show that just doesn't ever have voice yeah and the reason he doesn't have a voice is he's a Wendy's boyfriend. I remember that yeah I'd beef with Troy and we we we did a he pulled favor. I totally which is a gal do fucking voice view. He ended up getting kind of in trouble for it. It was more of a slap on the wrist. If you can't be doing that Shit so dr like hey we want to do the whole like series a kind of social. Whatever the hell it was at that point we had to go through his people and he didn't want to be that way he was he's like dude? I want to do this. Let's make it work but us us especially back then be the people we were. We got maybe two steps into that process and we're oh man it's complicated and it's going to require not too much money but the way that the money had to go was too complicated for what we were set up for gearbox they can handle that shape this and nothing that's of course the argument to be made here right is that kind of funny in the spare bedroom at the kitchen table and nick riding on these scripts was not the same as gearbox however there's a lot of different stuff going on here. Remember that when the David eddings lawsuit stuff was happening right and he was saying he that when he got replaced as claptrap this is a similar thing right that he left left in some he he worked at gearbox did the voice of claptrap and didn't get paid extra because of it. That's not the payment thing. I don't know anything about that other than what eddings has talked about publicly but that's still seems to be the case with how they do the voices in general right after the troy thing happened. I wondered if it was this based on what had happened with us. We obviously we had never had that kind of sag work a conversation before because we never did something like that before so it'd been so much time between borderlands two boroughs three I wondered after this happened with Troy was a union thing and then on top of that. I wonder how that would affect one actually burch who of course tiny team in the game is in the game. It is actually on the economy com slash wrong if I'm wrong about that doing tiny Tina's voice like I was wondering how she got around it because that's the other thing within the union ship makes everything so complicated. No longer on unions do a lot of great. I'm good. I'm not saying they're bad but I know like when I go and do the Lego Games because I'm not union. I have to do Taft Hartley Agreement. That's something weird like I. There's like paperwork on top of paperwork that is like we're bringing this person in because he s voice because of x y and Z yeah and so you know it's this weird thing of also talking to an extent here but for a long time not forever a longtime telltale didn't use SAG after voice actors obviously towards the end the change we're talking about in the borderland right here troy's in that obviously laurabeets in that all that but I remember and I'd have to go look at it now. There's there's something different about the credits where if you look through the credits of a telltale game where they use both union and non union they get credited in different ways interesting. There's so many intricate streak. I can't even talk to complications to use voice sag person or a a union voice actress nonunion voice actor that I I do wonder what this means for. How gearbox does it? You know I think chat ask in general I don't think so because I don't think this is something that happens often in many ways we've talked about. I think it is automatic. I'd imagine this happening all the time. I mean if it happened to us. I'm sure it's happening all over the place that you just don't hear about it because most people don't have podcast that years later the randomly telling the story sure you know but I think were going just different uh-huh directions with this one I'm saying I wonder how much this happens in terms of AAA Games. That's what I'm

We'll meant Chicago we all talked talked Wilbur man for awhile because he's another big minor actually plays the Fiji as to which up to those things but the three of us at first. We decided to make like Youtube video so you're just doing like live youtube videos talking about mining stuff like that. It's catching on with people and people started asking for a podcast so we started that up while we started talking more and we started looking at. All the stuff in the mining community that's Kinda lacking and a lot of it stem from the bear market itself because a lot like we were talking about a lot of your mind facility shutdown went bankrupt. You know stuff like that. People sold their equipment so we felt that there was a need to help people get away from that so that was originally where we started hatch straight great <hes> basically sourcing cheap power so that way if you have like we all right now we're coming up on profitability. It's good I think up to like thirty five cents right now our you can mind mind be profitable funding the bear market. It was like seven cents so you've got to be able to prepare for that stuff. You can find a contract for electricity. It's like four cents than you would be the entire bear market but it's also optimizing mining equipment optimize a-6 so that we offer all those services the big thing which I want <hes> announced on this show mission to was that we are launching our own AH less <hes> Lennox base the less <hes> basically it's always been my dream aim especially as long as I've been in mining dot have Mona West because of an using everybody else's O._S.. Talk to the admins. I'll talk to the deaths like patient this feature in my community. He likes to have this feature and Bass. Just brush it off so we talked about it. I'm like screw this. Let's <hes> let's make our own. Let's make a frigging less for the miners. That sounds pretty cool. I can totally dig it so oh hey by the way I found the discord you have that mining Emoji and I think that makes it. Maybe not searchable all for whatever reason on the main thing is that I won potentially I had to go to duck duck. Go then typed in proof of Walkin and in the invite to the discord popped opt not findable within discord. It's hidden. I gotTa tell you fellow you did a great job hiding your community man. I need to change that. I'd have double the people double maybe triple even oh my gosh I I you know I want you to ask the rest of the West at that voice. Those this challenge defined the proof of walking discord. I'm so pleased to found it. <hes> what are some of the best features I guess of you discord. Why do people care and how many miners owners would you say are in your community so the big things is that our community is very much good towards the newer minors <hes> a lot of your normal discords though Congress brushed way? I'll tell you know frigging google. Whatever so that was the biggest reason why built a mining mining repository has got your calculators of the articles I wrote that are full rig bills? You know stuff like that. The hell there's went sites for the Bitcoin talk analysis either website site intellectually filter the big announcements by prefer working released days say don't even have to search through bitcoin talked to find a new performer coin releases. There's websites and lead to overclock settings. You can basically type in the graph starred you have and here's a here's all over talk settings that everyone uses this is for your card so hold on a second because that was great information. What what is that channel that you have inside proof of walk because I'm looking for right now? You're not doing it in the voice travis sorry. I don't have to do all the time you'd be very tiresome. I think for the people listening it's called the mining repository mining repository Satori so we put bad we had we had bad going on on the an unannounced threat what what indicates that because we put like P._O._W.. In the title or are you got got people manually going in and looking for the different new ones no so there's there's a website in there. It's it's called job job job. Yeah I don't know who the community found it but if they send it to me and I thought it was amazing so I threw it in there and it's <hes> it's if people lawn time so now you can just go on there and click it and it'll filter. It actually refreshes like every five minutes John Job. That's great for you coin announcements now. This is fascinating stuff. If you guys can learn summating as instruments chum sates dot com slash our number eight dot com follow crypto Christopher for walking. I gotTa Tell Ya Fellas. You're mining buddies in the community. You need to be mining bad coin because what's more bad than bad bitcoin. I gotTa tell you stay bad. Thank you Christopher Walken. We're coming back crypto with us. Yes thanks for having having made <hes>. Thanks for two in the impersonation I should've I should've work online. We could have had a brick and walking off. I don't pay attention to those guys. Is there just walking off over a normally walking off before the podcast person drum roll right here and just like that delivered in wonder what Real Christopher walken would have to say about this town Italian show. It doesn't work with me. I gotta have more calories. You didn't see let's play that one more time and just because that's I love the sound clip. It doesn't work for me. I gotTa have more Calvin. I gotTa have more cowbell back when S._N._l.. Was Funny you know what S._N._l.. Has had moments of you know what I think. It's had three. Maybe four Aras when it was really funny like the first air was really funny. I like the Dana Carvey Mike Myers Eddie Murphy that was another that was a whole other era one of the really funny once it was that Phil Hartmann he was great Jon Lovitz really hilarious and then then you have the Adam Sandler and Chris Farley arly Chris Rock David Spade and that era right there which was really hilarious and then like we've just and you know and I do like <hes> you know. <hes> what's his name. <hes> sedate will today because he will ferrell out Jason is pretty. I think once a day Kaz left it's gone downhill. It's become it's become way too political and and I think if you're on one side of the political spectrum you might find some of that stuff funny but a lot of that stuff just mean-spirited not funny at all and when you get politics in the comedy it's not a good mix which is why we've ran off so of our fans on crypto talking politically and you got to have a sense of humor and and we do and if you don't well you know <hes> that's that sucks to be you. I mean that's that's not good but but we're glad that you're here. We're glad you're listening. Lots of good things ahead in fact <hes> we are going to be increasing the number of episodes that we are doing each each week back two three four during the last bull run and during the bear market we decided to take a little bit of a break. There was a lot of travel. All of we cut back to about two episodes on average a week but we're bouncing back up and we're going to start bringing bad news back to you once again. We're going to do two and a half the episodes a week now. That's not true. What is it going to quit in the middle of one and then in this news sorry we've reached our quota and this show is just saying things stay bad.

Why Is Cramming the Worst Way to Study?
"Hi, this is Ron burgundy from the Ron burgundy podcast, and I'm recording this brand new promo because apparently the old promos are now suffering from listener fatigue. So I'm recording. This new one to ask you to listen to the Ron burgundy podcast. And I'm so sorry. You the listener that you've become fatigued by the previous promo. So here's a brand new one a right there. How do you like it? Yeah. Listened to the podcast. Thank you. Welcome to brand stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here with a familiar scenario. It's the day before a big calculus exam. And you haven't studied for whatever reason you're short on time have too many other exams packed into the same day too, many cat videos, you know, around ten PM you finally sit down to review the material six hours later, you catch a short nap before rushing to school, you take the exam, and it seems to go fine. Although it wasn't your best effort you pass and promise not to repeat the cycle. When it's time for your next one. This is what's known as cramming and while students, parents and educators have long known. It's not ideal in desperate circumstances. It does work to some degree and by some degree. We mean, it might save your GPA, but cramming doesn't provide long term learning. According to researchers who study how we learn versus how we think we learn spoiler alert were usually really wrong in the case of cramming. You may pass the test and feel like you've got the material down but research shows. Shows a dramatic rate of forgetting occurs afterwards. This is especially problematic. When one lesson provides foundational information for the next like in math or a language class. Forgetting most of what you learned is not the only downside to cramming. Researchers found that losing sleep while pulling an all nighter also leads to residual academic problems for days after the cramming session. You can imagine the negative effects of an ongoing cycle of procrastination and cramming. More than a century of research shows that if you study something twice retention goes up studying and then waiting before you study more produces even better long term memory. This is called the spacing effect rather than reviewing material right away students benefit from spacing out their study sessions. There are many arguments about why spacing works better for longtime retention one relates to encoding when a student's studies something from a book and reviews it immediately. The student will encode the information in the same way both times, it's not very helpful long term, the more different times and ways you can encode information. The better you'll understand it. And the longer you'll know it this means that even studying the same material in two different locations can help you encode it in different ways. Therefore, you'll learn it more successfully. Another factor at work. Is that research shows that the harder it is for brain to recall, something the more powerful, the effects of that recall will be in the long-term, for example, if you're at a conference and meet someone new you might recall their name immediately, which probably won't help you. Remember it the next day? However, if you need to recall, the person's name an hour into the conference and do so you'll have a better chance of remembering a day or week later because you had to put in the effort to recall, it a third reason why spacing works is that people pay less attention to the second presentation of material that they've just seen because the information is already familiar when the material is spaced out. It's no longer familiar, so people pay more attention. If the spacing effect sounds like a lot of waiting around to review material, and it may indeed slow the learning process because you'll be studying for more than one evening. Recent studies have shown the positive effects of another study method mixing up different material while studying this concept called interleaving consists of working on or stuff. Being one skill for short period of time then switching to another one. Then maybe a third then back to the first twenty fifteen study tested interleaving and nine middle school classrooms. Teaching algebra and geometry a day after the lesson for the unit was complete the students trained with interleaving scored twenty five percent better than the students received standard training a month later, the interleaving group was up seventy six percent. This is great news studying for an exam or completing a big project doesn't need to feel so daunting an interleaving has benefits for writing to rather than trying to block out two hours to study for a math test study math for thirty minutes before you move onto French and then work on an essay go back to the math later. There's a message here for teachers as well as students instead of teaching topic in a block and going to the next steps. Teachers can spend a short time on a topic go onto others men returned to the earlier topics. But it seems that we have a lot to learn about how we learn a two thousand nine study from UCLA. A found that spacing was more effective than cramming. For ninety percent of the participants. Just six percent of those who crammed learned more than those who studied using these spacing effect in three experiments. Researchers tested spacing against cramming yet. Despite the findings in favor of spacing. Participants believed the cramming style was more effective and a twenty twelve UCLA study found that staying up and foregoing sleep study is actually counterproductive no matter how much a student. Studies daily. If they sacrifice sleep in order to study more they're likely to have more academic problems. Not bless the next day.

Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here. It might seem like fetuses are up to all that much either than growing in the cozy warm environment that is their mother's womb. And I mean growing from a bundle of cells into an independently living breathing human being as a big enough job. However research published in the journal of current biology shows the third trimester fetuses have vision capabilities much more advanced than previously thought and further they can choose what they want to look at. Researchers from Lancaster university in the United Kingdom were keen on expanding the understanding of fetal site capabilities. We spoke by Email with Vincent read, the lead researcher and professor of psychology. He said we've been able to explore the use of all the fetal senses except for up until now there's a lot that we know about newborn babies and their vision. But almost nothing with fetuses just before they're born the newborn is very good at processing faces and prefers to look at faces over any other shape. So it was logical to explore the development of this preference before birth. The researchers examined a total of thirty nine fetuses. There would have been more. But some of the babies were in deep sleep because they apparently missed the memo about participating in a research study while other tests, experienced poor image quality, the fetuses ranged injustice age from two hundred thirty one to two hundred and fifty two days that's about thirty three to thirty six weeks site is the final sense to develop inside the womb with is staying closed until around station week twenty eight this is because. Will retinas aren't developed until that point. Oh, and all of the babies were singleton's, no twins or multiple pregnancies were studied. Because these safety and comfort of the fetal participants and their mothers was upmost importance. The researchers designed noninvasive attempts to assess the baby's visual capabilities to do. So the scientists shown lights through the maternal tissue read explained the light consisted of three dots. When these are arranged to represent two for the eyes and one for the mouth newborn babies prefer to look at them or than anything else. So we didn't show fetuses of face, but an image that was face like. The researchers used forty ultrasound to measure if and how much the fetus has turned their heads in response to the stimuli. They also showed the same pattern, but inverted so it didn't resemble a face in structure to the fetuses as it turns out non face like dots. Weren't as appealing read noted that newborns. Don't find these configurations very interesting either, although subtle attraction to the face, let configuration of three dots makes a big difference in what we understand about developing sight read said, it means we have this preference. Even before we're born. It's either due to being an eight or two experiences prior to birth. Another major finding of this research is that it moves up. The human visual time line read said we now know that the fetus, actively engages with visual information in the prenatal environment. The head movement was a deliberate movement to track the stimuli that we presented. This means that we can now look at many other aspects of fetal vision the study has laid the groundwork for future delving into feet. Vision because as it stands right now little is known about how much pitas conc- read said a week old infant has very poor focal vision, it's all blurred. The same will be true for fetus a few weeks before birth. We know the premature infants can see shapes lights and details, but that's once they are born, and it could be that. The prenatal environment is different we need to find that out. Reads group plans to investigate whether fetuses can discriminate between quantities are numbers, which he noticed something that newborns can do he said if the fetus can do this to this tells us a lot about fetal cognitive abilities were also keen to look at how the fetus sees motion babies prefer to look at intimate or biological motion. If the fetus has this preference? This would suggest that experiences they've had engaging with their own body may have given rise to these preferences.

"christopher walken" Discussed on Blank Check with Griffin & David
"What are the difference between penguin's henchmen jokers henchmen? In the of. The pension Jesus in the comics the penguin is just like a mobster guy. He's not like a run for mayor find his parents. He's just a mobster kind of flop to those two characters in the movies because they like the joker is kind of. Yeah. Right. Right. Yeah. Of course, we all know, he's clown prince of crime. But yeah, you know, the penguin, me ideas. He's like if you've got a fat guy in a pinstripe suit or wet guy wetback, I it's so wet so wet Larry damn boy, the penguin aspect of and feels more indebted to like the dick Tracy thing where like these are not super human people. These are just like goons. They're like the one identified trae words, he's rat face has knows as long. Like a rat. You know, but like the penguin like there be the thing. Sometimes oh, the umbrella has guns in that. Or what? When there's also the freakshow element. Which is why his henchmen are all like circus. People very much. Yeah. Yeah. Henchman of always been like sometimes they're just like tough goon enforcers. Sometimes it's like the branding thing where he's got a bunch of guys with like matching emblems this whole idea of him being like, oh, he's the child of the circus who somehow took over. It's so many things right? It's actually too many things a lot of it's like this like children of paradise thing. You know? It's also like, obviously, this movie is very like all Burton's like German expressionist lake like this movie like looks like true paradise. It looks cabinet Dr cali-, right? It looks like knows Ferrara to like even like what you're saying. Fucking Christopher Walken. Looks so scary in this movie. He looks cool looks cool. He's supposed to be like a normal person. But he looks like to speak to Emily's thing. Like looks like a child's version of an evil business or whatever. Yeah. Right. Everybody has this just looks like an actual like he looks like Trump. He's he's just he's a very. Large son. He's alert adults. And then also this is the first movie to like be postmodern about Christopher walk and being like EBay notice voices weird. Rachel. Rachel before anyone started making Christopher Walken a parody of himself. Chris for walk ins pretty straightforward in this. But then they have a guy next to him just dunking on him the whole time being. But what's up this weird guys? Fucking weird. Sure. But he's also doing this Burton thing of like the very like theatrical makeup where it's like the dark circles around the eyes that aren't even pretending to look like something biological, right? It's just a heightening of creepy. Nece? Right. Well, it's like what happens when you take a bath thing chemicals. I guess come out looking a little tired. Go like, you know, Batman, joker cat-woman penguin or all just like people who have bad things happen to them. Yeah. Like joker was a bad person beforehand. But it's like he lived through this horrible like physically scarring access to a vet avec. Right. I don't feel bad for either. Either joker. I don't feel bad for the whole point is what he's really into is like how people cope with trauma, right, right? And like a person who's already bad becomes worse. Batman in this obsessive way that is just a coping mechanism becomes good question. Mark. I mean, he's presented as the good guy. Cat woman is like dangling on the side, and like the penguin decides to just like fully owned the idea of being hated and grotesque in a totally like vindictive way. But I think the key to this movie is like this is the movie after Edward Scissorhands, which is. So sort of diuretic in this like, I'm Tim Burton. I feel weird. I feel like this is our man in town of normal happy people and some of them are nice. And some of them are mean, but I feel like a different species, and I don't belong here. And this is the movie that's him being like is there such a thing as a normal person? I think this is a movie about the concept of there being a quote, unquote, normal person keeping using quote, unquote. But Michael Murphy who is like the most normal actor alive, dude. I love but like who Robert Altman used as like this guy is just like so straightforward..

So Albert again, I would be remissed. My son would kill me. If we didn't talk a little bit about Spiderman are you in a point. And and I don't mean this insultingly I needed complimentary a rule like that. Do they say come on in read for it? Or do they say get me over million not well that you'll very kind to even imagine that that might happen? Now, it's I was I was asked to coming screen test. Okay. And I think there was there was a list of short list of actors who who who were being considered. And I and I looked at the list, and I realized that it was basically five actors who come like in the public eye at that time because literally a few months before we been in high profile movies gotten a lot of attention. So people like Christopher Walken, Chris Kupa myself. And I think we would. Act as of a certain age who will come like, you know, sort of being talked about the reason why I think I go cooled in was because Sam Raimi's wife had seen Frieda. And Sam was you know was struggling with this list. And he was and she said have you have you seen this guy from Lena, he's in this movie Frida, he might be he might be a contender? So I turned up for this screen tests made it was just it was basically an interview. And then the test happened the next day and they mopped up a costume and stuff like that. And then in this test one of the produces was wearing sunglasses, and he just kind of went stop stop stop. And he just handed me sunglasses put those on and I put them on. And I could I wonder I put them on. And I tell in. In the room. Everybody just went. Ooh. And suddenly, I think that helped to kind of I, and it was it it kind of proves to me that the old adage about nobody really knows what they want until they see it, you know. And I think that nobody was quite sure how they wanted this to look until glosses went on. So it was it was the sunglasses that me the job. I think and then yeah, it was wonderful. I was as I said before I was always been marvel fan, and I loved, you know, I love the idea to I've never done anything quite like this. You know? I mean, when when I think about the the way technology has progressed from say raiders in nineteen eighty two Spiderman two in two thousand full whenever it was. I mean when when Harrison was being loaded into that snake pit those were real snakes. You know, that he was the only thing separating him from the snakes was a a glass, you know, gloss. Vale as it was that, you know, you couldn't see because the way they lit it. Now cozied beloved onto a great big green circle would be created digitally. So the the idea of getting involved in this kind of movie with all the sorts technology was really interesting to me. And and it was a long process..

"I feel like you might have a better perspective on this than most people. I haven't looked super into their drama since the the whole hash horse thing. But in my opinion, I think it would kind of be good for him too. There's a lot of like, yeah. The certainly a lot of negativity just associated with the bitcoin cash fee Lasko and the big haircut. They took on that. And trying to make it a thing. But it's it's like fascinating, though, from I still don't mind, but like from an outsider's perspective to see these wars of hash power going on. It's like it's kinda like drug cartels in a way. Yeah. And I think most people wanna see bit main fall anyway, 'cause it's a monopoly, right? Really is who centralizing bitcoin with their damn full? So they need to fall. I like this question here, we got. So Aaron here says he has a few friends PC gamers that are getting interested in mining any recommendations on where to start while. There's great telegram group called proof of walk-in that they all. And now, how do they if they want to join that? Where do they go to post a can yell put it in their little let me do it? Yeah. Plug away. Yeah. Somebody's asking Brennan sparks. Do real good money talk. But we can ignore that for now. When it comes down to like, you know, certain manufacturers is there a specific one that you do prefer when it comes to building your your rigs that you prettiest. So I've always been at AMD person. Based on the price like there's so much cheaper than Invidia in like, I would love to have in video because most time Invidia is much better on spec. Owings, but I just feel like pains Weiss the price yet. Even right now is like triple because like there, you can get a five eighty like a hundred bucks, but attendees he is going for like six or seven hundred dollars. So. Something I like to ask like, the really mining or the people who are very knowledgeable about mining is like let's say somebody brand new like assume like they they know how to operate like a windows desktop, and that's it, but they wanna get into mining. Where would you point them like a super beginner's guide? Or would you have any personal advice in terms of like a couple of cards to start the type of cards, maybe like how many cards to put in a rig because I think a lot of people don't know the answer to any of this. And they're just like is too much. I'm scared. You know? Yeah. So I mean, we'll Honey minor again, but they can start there. You can just jump on your laptop or if you have a game in computer. There's tested out. See what it does? 'cause I mean at the same time. It's a great learning tool because you can you can see what your stock settings are. And then you can download like after burner any can start messing with over clocking. So then you're kinda teach yourself out overclock the stress of the car like out to get more hash rate. And then after that, I mean you can start building. So I I had this one rig that I made it was an article on well reports, but it was like a shit. Now, you probably get it for like four hundred bucks. But back then it was like five fifty, but I mean, four hundred dollars you can probably get a one or two GP rig and just getting going, and then like I tell everyone just kinda leave room for expansion because you're gonna expand. No one stays to Jeep us ever. But I would at least get I'd get a motherboard. This supposedly six cards in thousand while power supply. But and got there's so much to it. Like, basically, you don't need a bunch of ram by like four gigs is really all you need. Don't get an expensive CPS USC people always trying to buy like, I fi-. I sevens. Like all might rakes have seller on processors..

"But I'll kind of go through their daily. There's also this bought on Twitter. You can follow us that you BIC and bought something like that. And I keep the thing on notifications. And every time a new one pops up, I'll just check it out. But basically, I kind of I look at it. I go a lot off of the big one sock announcement like the structure of it. If it's just something crappy that it looks like some twelve ruled together, I'm not gonna touch it. But if the Nelson actually has like the website the team if they're not anonymous stuff like that. And then I'll kind of jump in their disc. Board their telegram stuff like that. If there's a white paper, I'll look at that. But also kinda judge off a sentiment. I also another big thing tell people if you go on the bitcoin sock announcements look for legendary odors on their like not. So or you know, guys like that now Bill post on there? That's probably want to look at. So. But there's a lot of the. If you had to guess, how many different coins, you spec mind through, you know, twenty eight in how many would you rough estimate Jesus. I've tried to say like thirty or forty easily. Go not all the Motors. I guess that's you're saying. Split. Would you say between like coins like mine for an active profit right now and things where you're like this is going to be worthless right now? But I think it could make me a lot of money down the line. Like, what's the split between where you direct your hashing tower hash power? So right now, I'm kind of fifty fifty so like half, my rigs owning at like veil and then the other half I have split between other coins, actually profitable like haven or stylized stuff like that stuff is actually profitable. So that I kind of at least say break even. What's that website? You use to determine if the figure out the profitability, so the one that most no of is what's the mind dot com. But there's a couple of other ones. I like there's a coin calculators dot IO. That's like one of the best ones is that one. Also like you can click on the coin. And it'll actually it'll show you the hash rate difficulty. How many miners on polls polls breakdown everything like that? So that's pretty cool tool to have for minors. I know that what to mind one. But I hadn't heard of the cling calculated. I o. Yeah. There's a bunch of them. There's one called crypt unit that specifically kryptonite coins coin wars crypto coins. There's there's a bunch of 'em. Anna kind of slickly. Say it kinda sucks. There's a there's still no one stop shop yet these things 'cause like what's. So the funny part is people always try to jump on coins. Before they're on what's in mind because what's the minds like where the normal minors go. So there's there's much of a split still. So like I said I jump between like four different calculators. Look the profitability. Interesting. Give her are you strictly like, you're just mind GP us or you do you ever dabble with a six? Now, I haven't jumped in Essex yet. Like, I'm I'm hoping at some point. I get the mighty gather. 'cause I kinda wanna build my own like solar farm, don't Don't they they? have? And then I might get a six, but my my only fear with ACS is just them becoming obsolete. This. It's always my biggest fear with those things. It happens. All the time. I feel you the flexibility with GP rigs to me, it's it's it's, you know, it's way better in a sense, right? You can bounce around. You're not stuck to one thing. Yeah. Exactly. And at this point like I mean, what's funny is like a year ago. Like Invidia AMD were completely split. Like, there was only certain coins, you can mind on video only certain point commodity in the Ed now, they're kinda cross like, you know, in video cards can mind. These other algorithms that might not be as good as AMD, but they can and same for AMD. So it gives you more flexibility. That's very fascinating to me. Do you have like any we talked about this last episode or I think the last episode, but the whole egg drama with bit main and people are talking about like, John maybe stepping down..

"A thumb drive and plugging in your computer, and then everything's controlled from their website. Like, all you have to do is like look under computer and in your rig ID, and then everything else is done on their website. You can do all the over clocking. Choose your coin shoes your wallet address all that stuff. Like, it's the most simple setup that you can do, and I try to push it to people 'cause everyone's afraid to go to Lennox think Lennox is like, oh must do a hundred lines of command line and shit to get this going, and it's not true at all. It's it's an entire gooey. So. Yeah. That was my impression of Lennox until like two years ago. Probably. So that's like, totally understandable. It might have been in. Maybe I'm an idiot. But it's I think just mining in general has this big like scary thing to people because there's hardware involved. There's command line interface Houston volved, which is just I mean, those things alone. It's it's like not very user friendly. But I think Honey minor, for example, is like something that's really, you know, aiming to make that a better experience more user friendly more widespread talk a little bit perhaps about your experience working with them. And maybe what you've learned from that. Oh that to me. Like the biggest thing for me was like I didn't realize how low the level of knowledge on mining was until I ran that telegram group does like most of my circle was all people that have already been mining for a while. So and the other thing too is like it's been very community driven like people always wanna help out with the new guys. But just the excitement that I see from people that just there on their laptop, and they might not be making much, but they're mining the coolest thing in it. It really does become like a gateway because these guys use Honey minor for like a month. And then they're like our own a Bill the mining rig. Now, I want to do this. I wanna get more in a so it's it's been really cool. And then a lot of aspects to like, you know, helping out people in third world countries stuff like that like that's big for them. 'cause they don't make a lot of money. So then make in like ten cents a day on the laptop is huge for them. Yeah. I think, you know, just in terms of decentralisation to even you know, every little bit helps in terms of spreading out the hashing power was reading something on coined us today about the importance of. Remaining decentralized, and some of the lessons we've learned from two thousand eighteen with, you know, the bitcoin wars in the bitcoin cash and bitcoin cash ABC and all that nonsense. The. So one thing I've been wondering is like when you first started mining. I'm sure it was very much like you mind, bitcoin or you don't really mind anything. Maybe I'm wrong on that. But how was your process of like choosing what to mine evolve? Over time. Yeah. So in the beginning. Yeah. Really was just bitcoin. And then he had light coin in. There was no ch coin. And then started making all these other crap forks like pure coin like feather coin just all this crap. So and then I mean back, then basically, it was just like, well, this might this is probably just gonna pump. So I'm just gonna mind it, and then wait for somebody to buy a bunch of it and sell it off. Right. But I mean, it's changed a lot. And especially now with how bad the market is like you've you've really got to be selected. What you mind, you can't just mind random shit, cause you're paying electric city most of us reader mining at break even or two loss right now. So unless you have cheap electricity. So basically are good. Oh, yeah. So pretty much just kind of going off on that is like how does somebody who's minding really kinda surf the bear market. Because it's like it's something we've seen a lot of recently as you know, big mining firms going bankrupt, then just shutting right down. How do you deal with that in this environment? Yeah. So it's kind of twofold. So it's a lot easier for home minors to keep going in the bear market than it is with the industrial guys. 'cause does show guys have got overhead. They've got employees..

"If you're just doing in your house because most these rigs like a twelve card rig will pop fifteen amp breaker, so like a lot of times you have to run extension cords and like Adam gone to other rooms. And so like that. But I think most homeowners have like three or four. So I mean, and that's still a decent investment. Which right now is a lot less than like back in January when people paid like five times as much it's crazy. I remember kazaa now like on the topic of people paying that much like back in January and all that I was able to cause. That's how I mainly into. That was just, you know, like one limb couple of mining rigs news, just you know, a side thing. And then we ended up selling the rigs at like full value after half a year of us or so, yes. I kinda the same thing. Yeah. I was surprised when it happened. I was like no way. Like, they're actually willing to pay that just put the price up like who cares? Let see. And then. Yeah. There was bites as well. Okay. Yeah. I basically have like twice the amount of Jeep. I had back in January 'cause I had I had like sixty and then in January February these cards were going for like three times the price. I bought a met. So I sold like half of them and then slowly during this whole downtrend just and buying them back and now like five eighty s which is my favorite card. You can get like a hundred bucks on EBay, which is nuts. That is. We like it's funny because, you know, people don't think about the market of trading GP us in a sense. But and it's another market. You can you know, it's like when you're able to sell, you know. GPU's at full value. And some people were even selling them more value than they had paid. And being extremely used. Like that's insane to me like. You will you said you were pretty tech savvy even like building your own computers from twelve years old. Did you have any learning curve getting into mining? Or was it all pretty intuitive to you from the start in the beginning. It was rough. Luckily, I have my friend that kinda helped me out, but like setting up minors back. Then was terrible. Because I mean, we didn't have the resources we would have like a couple of a couple of forums and stuff that we could go into and look at but trying to actually get your rigs mining and stable was was hell a lot of times back then 'cause there was only like two different minors. And I mean, yeah, it was it was a lot more difficult than now. I mean now everybody's like on hive which always push out. I've which was dude should start like AMI. But. Like everyone uses high now, but it's so easy. Because now you gotta do is like bitcoin pick a Opole put your wallet in go. Like, that's it ochre and nuclear a little bit about with high vis for anybody who doesn't know. Yeah. So hive OS is it's a it's a Lennox based mining software. It's it's built on a bunch of.

"But it's gone all we had back then. And then I just kept mine was building my empire a little bit in two thousand fourteen by then I'd spent most of the bitcoin I had stupid shit. 'cause I mean back then we really didn't think it was going anywhere. Like it is now and then the little bit that I have left I had on gods and. Got taken away. So I ended up I ended up getting out for a while. So two thousand sixteen rolled around my same, buddy. He started talking about theory. And I didn't wanna do it because I got so fucking wreck by bitcoin. But I kind of decided to the same thing again when it wasn't gaming. I was minding it. And then three had taken off. I was basically like holy shit. So I sort of build more mining rigs mining theory him, and then around shit was part like may or June of last year when it like had its first pump to like three hundred bucks. I sold off most of it thinking that was it, which we know it wasn't. But in hindsight, I built all my money rigs off of that. I like cleared out most of my debt. So at least I have that. But after that, basically all the madness started. I kinda started diving into more like a YouTube and stuff like that soc- what people were doing. And then that's actually I stumbled across. You guys I have no idea but crippled Twitter that shit. I didn't do the social media stuff. So I I found you guys. I started a made my own account like in January. It was just a lame account. It was knee my name, but I sort of like following you guys in a couple of people that were on your show. And then from there to started taking off jumped into the the aquarium, I made my first persona. So which people might not know was crypto Kenny powers. I remember the. I jumped in the baby pod with that of maybe ought his him. Then in the aquarium, and then I got Brecon lit up on Twitter in may winter in the banning 'cause owes beef box on five hundred followers. So I was thinking we come back at Twitter. Like, I base that we sort of down into telegram sort of my group, and then I decided to say, screw it. And I came back in. That's when I came up with the whole crypto Christopher Walken thing and from their existing crazy between well reports Honey minor like my telegram group. It's just is madness now. So yeah, that's me shit. I gotta give you kudos law can because if you've made a real name for yourself, and you've done it the right way. I always hear people talking about how much you've helped them with mining. So, you know, this community needs more people like you, in my opinion, so kudos to you. Yeah. It's it's it's been the biggest thing. And I think this was built most of my following in like, my Graham groups in almost fourteen hundred people now, so thank you. Yeah. So 'cause bait will was funny was like a basically corrupted people because I was on the community, Honey, minor, right? You guys a story coming in have laptop. They wanna was Honey minor. And then I've got a couple that they start off with one GPO. And then they saw what I was doing. Now, they have like two twelve card rakes. So. Nice. How many how many speak a rigs how many rigs near in? This could be a dumb question. Do you feel is like that that perfect number for someone? That's not real serious into mining. But maybe it wants to dabble into mining. I mean, one one get you going pretty good. If you want to just be a spec minor. But a lot of it has to do with what your house can hold..

"Either way taken cover. That's awesome. So we'll just I think I guess I would say based off what I know. It's fake. Based off. Yeah. My my area. Let's go with that. Because I've never seen fireworks. Like this on New Year's, I I'm not sure they exist is what at. Yeah. Tinfoil. Hat. I don't know this. But. It's a good. I mean, this is a good observation. I I will say though, now that I think about it. I think I remember like twelve fifteen hearing a firework, and I fucking perched up from my couch and said to my wife who in God's green earth is lighting off fireworks. But so who cuts cleaner? We're learning a lot tonight guys. This is great already. So we're joined with one of the mining experts. I would say or extraordinaire, he's right up there with not so fast, and our opinion. Crypto Christopher Walken joining us tonight. Come and live from north Florida. I think he said, right? That's where I'm at. So what's good, man? Thanks for joining us. Yeah. Thanks for having me. It's a it's kind of funny 'cause we know we talked about a bit. But me come in on yours kinda made my whole crypto social media shit come full circle. So it's pretty cool to be on her is his actual kind of got me into social media of crypto. So yeah, I love that right into. It's so cool to hear that. And it's like, I'm sorry for sucking you in to you know, recess cool of creditor. But I love here that, you know, at least, you know, we kind of had that impact in the sense. Hopefully, it's not a negative impact. In the long run. But in a. Oh, that's great. So first time on and we're pumped to have you really dive into some mining talk. But how we kind of start out with. Everyone's first time on on. Let's give a background a little bit. Tiffany listening on your background. How you got into crypto? You know, what kind of intrigues you about mining was mining factor of what kinda got you into crypto just kinda go on from there. Yes. Yes. So first off on civil computer nerd like I built my first computer back in like ninety seven I was like twelve years old so big computer game or all that. So mining kind of fell into place. I I about bitcoin back in two thousand ten I'm still active duty navy and a buddy of mine that was on the boat with me, it was mine in it. And he's a he's actually super-rich now on long out of the navy, but he sort of minded in two thousand ten only about it. I thought it was total bullshit. It just was magic internet money. Couldn't do anything with it at the time. You know, so whatever, but a two thousand eleven he started talking about it again. And I decided just started mining bitcoin like inbetween when it wasn't playing video games. I have this little card rig that I was using back, then I was just might gaming, computer. But it was still like one or two day, which was nuts. So fast forward a little bit two thousand twelve I was huge into Diablo three and I found out. That they have these like Chinese servers and you coulda sell like armor pieces frigging gold and stuff like that for bitcoin and vice versa. You could like sell the weapons of stuff. Bitcoins. Started doing that as making money off of that. And that's our dumping that more mining rigs. So I kind of just kept going from there not really social media stuff at all yet employs back then there wasn't much for mining. I mean at read it you had the bitcoin talk or homes, which was really the main hub back. Then it's still is we can talk about that later for spec mining stuff..

Let's hear it. So every so often on New Year's you see on Twitter Instagram, wherever it's like happy new year in Paris. And it's just like thousands of fireworks in the air like beautiful lights, and then he see one from like India. It's like equally impressive you and from wherever it's all like insane. As anybody been to these places that New Year's do they actually look like this or do they just put all the fireworks? They Photoshop them on at the same time. I'd take about those out here. It gets pretty lint. It's pretty wild. My take is they just showed the fourth of July, although weight, that's that's not true. There. Embarrassed, huge idiot. Actually, I think I think like our July first Canada day fireworks are probably better than our news fireworks. I would say at least from my expanse. If you have aren't really many fireworks for New Year's not here. Either. Think a lot because I was outside. And I thought someone was firing a shotgun or something as what the hell is going on here. You know, and it was only like ten in the evening. So to me, it was a little early to be shooting those things off, of course, a realize carries it, just fireworks. Yeah. I'm in north Florida.

For example, if only two brothers named and Rudy dos. Ler had learned to get along Germany's kgab route or dos. Ler might have bested Nike is the world's top sports footwear company today. Instead, the brothers bitter feuding resulted in the brood Ostler brand that's German for dos. Ler brothers being split in half and reborn as a Dita's and Puma which today are the world's second and third top sports shoe businesses eight off or Audie dos. Ler began making shoes and his mother's laundry room shortly after returning home to the Bavarian village of heads Coon oka- following World War One his business did well and his older brother Rudolph or Rudy dos. Ler joined him a few years later to help shy. Audie was the creative force and brains behind the business while extroverted Rudy was these salesmen, the brothers Dassler soon gained a claim for rolling out the first track spikes, but the company really took off after the break. Others persuaded American Olympic athlete Jesse Owens to wear their shoes in the nineteen thirty six Berlin Olympics. He did and he won four gold medals while doing so yet it wasn't quite the triumph. It should have been for the brothers. As things were beginning to sour between the two the bad blooded started a few years earlier in nineteen thirty three when Addy's sixteen year old wife tried to interfere in the business Rudy was not pleased. It didn't help that audience and Rudy's families live together in the same town, home and their wives didn't really get along. But the breaking point came during a World War Two air raid Rudy and his family were tucked into a bomb shelter and as audience family entered Audi said, the dirty bastards are back again. He was purportedly commenting on the Royal airforce planes roaring overhead but Rudy was positive. Audie was referring to his family from there things quickly unraveled when Rudy was called up to serve in the Nazi military in nineteen forty three. He was sure that Audie had arranged it to have him sent away from the factory. Anxious to get back Rudy deserted his post in nineteen Forty-five later when arrested for desertion. He again, blamed ATI who it appears did snitch on him after a few more scuffles. The to split up the company in nineteen forty eight moving assets and employees into one of two competing operations located on opposite sides of the off river that flowed through the town ATI renamed his business. Adidas combining his first and last names Rudy did the same dubbing his Rueda though. He later changed it to Puma soon. Most of the town's citizens were employed by either Adidas or Puma in these siblings, intense rivalry spread throughout the town. If you worked for one company, you did not socialize with employees of the other marrying across enemy lines was strictly forbidden. You only shopped in the stores on the same side as the river as the factory in which you were employed overtime. Adidas far surpassed Puma in sales, thanks to audience creativity and technical acumen, though Puma also did quite well. But while the two were hard at work competing against one another they. Paid no attention to another shoe company Nike that was quietly gaining market. Share today Nike is king of the sports shoe business with thousand seventeen sales of twenty one billion dollars compared to Adidas as ten billion dollars and 'Pumas two billion the brothers did speak to one another a few times later in life. But they never reconciled. Both died in the nineteen seventies and were buried at opposite ends of the local cemetery their feud finally ended in two thousand nine when employees of both companies played together in a friendly soccer match.

Chams Top 10 Weddings
"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully. Hello and welcome to the spoilt Milt movie podcast hair spoilt milk. We like to discuss destroy and dissect guilty pleasure movies and decide whether they're truly spoilt milk or if they ascended into fine, looks Yoris cheese. So without further ado, we go. Warning who's podcast is full of spoilers for the title feature on this body language from the start. If you've never seen the film or your fended by Bob language, you hop him warrant. Hello, and welcome to a very special one off episode of the spoilt milk movie podcast of late. We've had a bit of a change in the structure to the way that things work at spoilt milk. And that's due to silly old me cham- getting married. So I've been preparing for a wedding actually having a wedding, and I'm going off on my jollies on my honeymoon. So they last episode was the Hobo and Cutty talking about some recent trailers I folk in loved the episode. All laughing might itself. This time I'm going to use a wedding theme and I'm gonna go through my top ten wedding scenes from films. So in number ten, it was a close toss, oh, between the godfather and another film, but I actually went for deer hunter, the Michael cheeky. No film won't five Oscars including best pitcher. And this is a Vietnam film from the seventies. Deer hunt is a really long film goes on for nearly three hours believe and the first hour is all set in a wedding. Really great seen rarely jokes deposes the violence on the trauma that's going to come later in the film by having a huge one hour celebration of the marriage of the what you believe to be the protagonist, but we ought to find out dinner. We'll take over the film. This film is amazing. It's an absolute classic and is one of my favorites.

Foco Foco and he goes no by you. Another drink and the guy says, fuck it. Not only is seen an absolute masterclass in acting from deniro ee. Absolutely. Outshines walking in the Centaur film. But it really gives you that sense early on that this isn't going to be a fun film. It's not gonna be a war film set to a poppy soundtrack where everything's Rosie, and maybe you see some guns and so much. And this is going to be a gritty t war film. That just says, fuck it. Number nine, his first appearance of an animated film and it's picks up. So it's not as much about just a wedding scene in general as opening sequence if you've ever seen. Nope. You'll know what I'm talking about. So we're introduced to the character of collars young boy and throughout the film, we get to see that he is a bit bit with life. He's almost given all p. stays at home. He's not interested in the world. But right at the start of the film, we get this show sequence that tells you the story of column. What brought him to the be the mon- the ears we see him meet his future wife as young child, they bombed over a balloon and then they fall in love, and they have this wedding sequence where you just see a photo get taken, and then she jumps on him and kisses him.
