"There was a strike there was A pandemic like whatever But I think that we Are careful to not assume Production and assume production At the same level Just because the absence is one That's outside the players control because Like once you start doing that Like where do you draw the line With that yeah there are cases Like Edgar Martinez let's say who Was probably qualified to be a big Leaguer before he became one right Or or David Ortiz or Someone like that who was either blocked By another player or maybe was Mis -evaluated they were not The player who was amazing at AAA And couldn't hit it all in the majors they just Weren't given a shot for whatever reason And then you might say well if he'd been up a year Two or three earlier then those numbers Would be great but you are It's still a hypothetical it's not Actual production so it's hard To just write that in there As if he actually did that You know what you would project him to have done So I seem to recall Jay maybe writing About players whose cases May have been hurt by The shortened season and the missed time But I don't know if he suggested That we should just sort of fill in the Blanks with what we think they would have Done I think you you do kind of Have to hold it against them while Apologizing for it I guess yeah I think Because I think you're right that it's So it seems like Every generation is marked by something In that way right and so To excuse it away would suggest That it's like an aberration in a way That it really isn't and again You can't you don't know like maybe Maybe the great Hitter would have stunk That year like we just don't know and I think because we can't have Great confidence Or at least we can't say for sure You're not gonna you're not gonna just fill it in You're not yeah and I guess To some extent you're judged against your Peers and your contemporaries right Who in theory also would have Missed that time right with the Hall of Fame you're also judged against Previous generations and subsequent Generations with something like Jaws But but also your War and your stats and You're on the ballot entering The ballot at the same time as your contemporaries And so if everyone's Numbers were suppressed a bit by something Then you might still look as impressive Relative to the competition The immediate contemporary competition So you might not be penalized Quite as much yeah Alright question from Benjamin Who says I've set up one Google alert in my life For Jamail Weeks I'm guessing around 2011 when I was Playing in a dynasty fantasy baseball League it was never very useful For me but every few months I'll get an alert That he's been a guest on some podcast I've never Heard of or he's hosting a celebrity Kickball tournament CC Sebastian D Gordon participated It's kind of interesting to follow his life this Way I'd never know anything about him Otherwise my question is Let's say Google alerts had been around Since the beginning of baseball And you could choose one baseball Related person to get alerts on For their entire life who Would you choose since it's their Entire life I think their life should Already be over to be eligible for Selection Oh no I think this is mainly Because of the next sentence so no Ben You cannot just pick Shohei that's much Too easy I don't think they should Have to overlap your life either You are immortal in this scenario Oh but if you're immortal could you choose Someone from the future maybe that's too much Who would you be most interested to learn About obviously the baseball part is Important but it's their entire life Do you just want to know about a decade long Career and never be alerted to their existence Again or do you want somebody Who has an interesting post career life I have some ideas but wouldn't Want to sway your choices So yeah You figure most players Their baseball playing career Is hopefully just a Fraction of their life And I guess the other thing Is that do I need a Google Alert on them if they're playing Do I need that I can find out What they're doing if they're doing something Interesting right like I wouldn't Need a Google alert about Shohei Otani currently because I'm pretty Sure I see everything that is published about Shohei Otani in every medium So it would be overwhelming If I got Google alerts it'd all be Redundant oh yep saw that saw that Saw that so It would maybe have to be Either a less Prominent player who Was doing something really interesting That was not being covered Widely and obviously Or like if you were A Williams Ostudio fan And you were only getting Google Alerts from effectively wild podcast Episodes every couple days and No one else was talking about him as much He got plenty of publicity as it was but Maybe a more obscure player Would be more interesting Just because you wouldn't want to be overwhelmed And also if it were a Superstar then you would just hear about Things anyway but then maybe The post or I suppose Pre -playing life would Be more important because hopefully It's the bulk of their Career right and if it's just someone Who's good at baseball then you're going To be getting a lot of alerts about he Had a good game and then for The rest of his life it'll just be Stuff about his baseball career right It'll just be his number was Retired and he's at an autograph Citing ceremony and he made the Hall of Fame and he talked to A group of kids or whatever it would be But it wouldn't be super interesting Probably. I mean maybe not But I think that a lot more Ballplayers fall into the I'm going to cite two alive people Because I don't want I've already talked enough about ghosts But like I would imagine And perhaps they do not Rise to This level of prominence From a coaching perspective But I think that you would End up with a lot more Former players who are like Dave Roberts types Than John Jason types Where like their path Post -playing leads them To a coaching role A managerial role maybe they End up in player dev in some capacity Maybe they Open a facility Where they're trying to help guys Fix their swings A lot of these guys Stay Kind of adjacent to the game At the very least Or in the case of many Of them will end up being Central figures in the game In a leadership At the league or managerial Capacity A lot more of them than like I'm going to go be on a boat Well yeah, I was actually going to say Jason because it's unusual You wouldn't get many Alerts for John Jason So maybe that's perfect because I get too many notifications As it is The ones that you did get would be like Where in the world is John Jason Like John Jason is on a tropical island He's sailing around in some Beautiful locale He's taking in just the Cedary It would be calming, it would be It would be therapeutic to hear about where John Jason was Unless you questioned your own Life choices and would think every time Why am I not on the boat like John Jason Maybe you would be Maybe it would inspire you to make a change in your life So I think he'd be On my list But he's still alive Right, yeah, we can't count him But in the future he Yes Maybe Or maybe he's found the secret to immortal life I just mean that he is a mortal He's a mortal man If anyone has found the fountain of youth It's probably John Jason You'd want a Character So you'd either want someone with a really Interesting post baseball Life and career where it's like The first line of their obituary Is not about them being a baseball Player They were a baseball Like a politician Jim Bunning Not that I would want an alert about Jim Bunning Specifically necessarily but someone who goes on To be a prominent politician After being a good baseball player Or an actor You know, one of the major leakers who had A long career in Hollywood Like Chuck Connors or Mike Donlon Or someone like that Or Bob Euker, right Who fortunately is still with us But Bob Euker, he's a character He'll say funny stuff, he'll make you laugh And he was in movies He was like a celebrity, he was a pitchman That'd be kind of fun But I think that I think that there's a lot There's so There's a lot of safety In not knowing what they're doing Right? Like imagine Imagine if you had At one point been a Kurt Schilling fan Right? It would be Better, I mean I guess It's sort of cowardly to say that We should confront these things You know, in a Steely -eyed, open -eyed sort of way Like adults do when people Turn out to be disappointing But like there is something to be said for like I enjoyed this guy A lot while he played He brought me Entertainment and High highs and I Have no idea Who he has turned into Or, you know He has not had an opportunity To reveal who he always was Because sometimes That disappoints us You know, so I wonder If I would want to know I think that when you don't have A microphone put in front of you Every day, the stuff That sucks, we just don't have to find Out of that, and again, is that a little Cowardly of me, like, you know I'll own that piece,
"chuck connors" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Well, I would love you to do that, Lori, we just got a couple minutes left, but please, where do things stand now? How do you feel about all this whole process? Well, I'm encouraged, because I know that the First Amendment protects me, and I'm hopeful that the Supreme Court very soon, any day now, will have a decision, will continue to protect our right to speak freely. Listen, I just want to create custom artwork that's consistent with what I believe, but I want that for everyone. I want that for the LGBT web designer. I would want that for anyone, whether they agree with my views on marriage or not. Everyone should be free to live and work in alignment with what they believe, without the government punishing us. Right. So really, this is not just a win for myself and 303 Creative, it's a win for each and every one of us. Well, congratulations for being willing to do this, Lori Smith, owner of 303 Creative, because we need people like you to do that, and thank you, ADF, and particularly you, Kelly Fedorek. What's the website for ADF before we end here? ADFlegal .org. ADFlegal .org. This is very, very important, and I'm just excited to hear that we still live in a country where something like ADF exists, and that folks like Lori, you're willing to stick your neck out, because you're fighting for all of us. So God bless you, thank you both. Thank you so much. Thank you. Folks, welcome back. Before we end the day, I wanted to get Pastor Jack Hibbs of Chino Hills Calvary Chapel back here to talk about what you, Jack, you were just mentioning this before you had to go, so let's go back. You were talking about something that you're launching. Yeah, so during the whole cancel period, we wound up putting in our resources, and God put a great team together, and we wound up launching, or our launch date's May 28th. That's Pentecost Sunday, and it's 24 -7 -365 Christian programming. It's this Sunday. That year, it is this Sunday. They can go right now to reallifenetwork .com, subscribe for free, and you'll get 24 -7 -365 Christian programming, including the Eric Metaxas Show, children's programming, biblical prophecy type of teachings, children's content, and even some good old just moral character building stuff like Little House in the Prairie. Like Gunsmoke? Yeah. Like... Great stuff. Ozzie and Harriet? You know, we joke around, but I watch Turner Classic movies all the time. I watch classic sitcoms, but Turner Classic movies, a lot of times you'll watch a film. The other day, they had on Jezebel with Bette Davis and Henry Fonda, and they try to kind of portray it like, oh, it's transgressive, Jezebel. But at the end, it's a moral film, and it's amazing to me how many films from that era have this profound moral ballast that when you watch them, you realize that that's right, yes, that was wrong, and that needs redemption, or that person needs to be punished. It's so fascinating. So true. So you're gonna have some programming that is... Yeah, you would consider it secular, but it's highly character building. Like the Riflemen starring Chuck Connors? Will you have that? The Riflemen, I want to get that. I'm not kidding. One day... Is that the guy that raised his son by himself? He was a widow? I don't remember. Widower? Oh yeah, of course it is. Chuck Connors. Incredibly high moral standards. Listen, I remember, why was I watching the Riflemen? I was in California, since I'm always on New York time. I'm waking up at 4 a .m. or something like that, right? And I turn on the TV, there's an episode of the Riflemen starring Chuck Connors. So this was like 1961 or something like that, and it was such an unbelievably moral story. Don't tell a lie, open the door. Be a man. Be a man. Stand up to the bullet. It was incredible. And I thought, this was what we were teaching kids. You know? And so, anyway. Okay, so tell me again. It's real life... RealLifeNetwork .com Real life. RealLifeNetwork .com RealLifeNetwork .com And you're telling me my show will be on there? You're on there. I'm already on there? You're already on there. You don't know. You have no idea, but you're on there. I have no idea. Well, people can find you at JackHibbs .com. I guess they can watch me speak at your church next Wednesday, May 31st, sorry. May 31st, next Wednesday, if they go to JackHibbs .com. But what you were saying, I don't want to forget, to get people in churches active politically, they need to go to RealImpact .us. This is just, I've never heard that before. When you just shared that with me, that you guys got involved on that level, that is the hope of America. If people will get serious about that. It's our national outreach, yeah. RealImpact .us, I'm just astonished. But if, it's kind of like I say to people, like homeschool your kids, what can I do? What can I do? If you're in a church, go to RealImpact .us. If your church will do this, we will change this.
"chuck connors" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Searching for names on baseball reference, but this time with a twist. No. Let's see. I am really into the idea of discovering that a celebrity played in the minor leagues in the past. And I'm running out of them, but there's always a new one because I was going to draft how Geddy Lee donated his collection of autographed Negro league baseballs to the Negro league Hall of Fame and that's just cool as heck he had this big collection. He donated to the museum. It's there as the Getty Lee collection. And I just think that's fascinating. But as I was about to, as I was doing my draft prep work, right in the middle was the signature of Charlie Pride, who's a country music legend, former part owner of the rangers. I knew that. I knew he had a connection to the rangers. I didn't know he actually played in the minor leagues. I love that stuff. Like Randy, macho man savage. Yeah, I loved when I first found out about that. Chuck Connors, the rifleman. So this plays Luke on Gilmore Girls. Really? Yeah. Yes, yes. There's a Hall of Fame football player. Dion Sanders, who's like he was a college coach, he actually played baseball. Stuff like that. Like I love that sort of stuff. So I will take surprising celebrity baseball connections. Yeah? Chuck Connors played in the big leagues, right? But did he really? Yeah, I think so. John Elway is a good one. Do you like the other sports star or is this mostly people who are not famous for athletics? No, I'll take that. I'll take that the Giants drafted Golden Tate. Former Seahawks receiver. He had no interest in playing baseball, really, but the Giants drafted him for gets jiggles or whatever. So that is that's totally acceptable. I'll even go a step further and say, you know, George W. Bush, perhaps becoming the commissioner baseball at one point, and the funny little pathways that this world might have taken if that were the case. I'm well versed in all this stuff. Yeah, it's a good one. All right, Sam, you want to go? Let's see. I'm going to take when it's in between innings and the pitchers warming up. I'm going to take the first baseman rolling ground balls to the other infielders. Which is just strikes me as not suitable to their sea level. If that makes sense, these are baseball players who are obviously a fielded hundreds of thousands of ground balls that were actually hit to them from the correct angle. And I just feel like getting a slow roller thrown to you by the first baseman doesn't really prepare you for anything. And yet they do it. They do it. It's part of the job. So they show up. They feel the slow roller thrown across the infield from the wrong angle to them. And they use two hands and then they throw it back. It reminds me of like if every time I sat down to write an article, I had to first take out one of those kindergarten sheets of paper with the dotted line and work on my letters. And I had to do it every time. Get up for lunch, come back to the article. Work on your letters. First, so I don't know why they do it. Part of it must be for the spectator experience, right? Like the entertainment value. I think so. I've got a lot of entertainment value, but it's like the hold music of Facebook games. It's not good. It's not entertaining, and yet if it were just silence, you would wonder, am I still on? You know? So you have to have something, right? And maybe you might even find yourself Tapping your foot from time to time and surprise yourself. So if they were just standing out there doing absolutely nothing that would be awkward, right? Not just because we're used to them doing something, but also they wouldn't know what to do with their hands. This is something that they do with their hands. Yeah, they could just go out later.
"chuck connors" Discussed on Gun Talk
"Tom Gresham, it's gun talk. We're still talking about guns. Rifles, pistols, shotguns, revolvers, air guns, I don't care. We'll talk muzzle loaders, sure. I don't know much about them, but we got people around here who do. Simple as that. I don't know, everything about everything. In fact, there are a lot of things I don't know much about at all, but I depend upon my Friends, whether they're in studio or out there, you call in and help me out. Often it's you're very kind. And I appreciate that. It's often well Tom, you know, it may be that what you really want to say is Tom, you idiot. I can't believe you don't know this. But you're generally too kind to say that. And I appreciate that. If you want to join us on the year 8 6 6 talk gun, somebody called in last hour, I completely missed this. Today is the 28th anniversary of this radio show. We went on the air. First show was March 5th, 1995. Holy cow, amazing. We were on all of who knows one, two, three, four, stations, maybe, maybe. We had a network that was kind of a quasi network that wasn't, I think they were out to take people's money and they took mine as well. But that's okay. I got it started. Got us all in the air. And I learned a lot in the process and ended up connecting with the Jim kenzie and we've been together for a long time now doing this thing. And now holy cow, I think we're onto it in 70 plus radio stations and according to Apple, at least, and they measure podcast in our category where the number one podcast all time in our category on Apple iTunes. Amazing stuff. It all because of you. You follow me, you share people, share it with people, you tell them about it, and I appreciate that very much. And if you want to talk about guns right now, it's a good time. Give me a holler, 8 6 6 talk gun. We'll do that. David called in. He's in oh, McCarthy, New Mexico, and one. Hey, David, you're on gun talk. What kind of range of ports you got? First of all, Albuquerque, don't blame me. Don't blame me. And yeah, I want to see what's going on there. What a mess in the legislature. Yeah, that's actually a funny should say that. You want to talk about dedication and do my civic duty. I got wrong by our state. So I literally went up 6 years in a row, 30 alternating 30 day, 60 day, 30 day, 60 day sessions in the middle of the winter time. I went up there and I attended almost every day almost all day long, meeting up to up to 14 hours up to midnight. 6 years in a row and I slept in my truck. In the winter time in Santa Fe to do it, so how is that for some civic duty dedication? That is incredible dedication. Thank you for that. Yeah, you're welcome. And, oh, and yeah, we did have some interesting top tell you different time. But there was an interesting showdown. There was literally a literally a showdown, an arm showdown, the guns remained in the holsters in the committee in the committee room when they were discussing one of the firearms Bill. I'll tell you about it. What I called about is tongue in cheek range report leading into a serious question about citing technique and I'm kind of a layperson as far as guns go away. I keep them stored and when I want to go shoot I go shoot and I don't do a lot of technical stuff in between and I started shooting when I was a little kid like most of us and I had my BB go to my 22 and shotguns as they were passed down and a technique I adopted. First of all, my range report is I'm kind of a manly man. So my daily carry is not a daisy red rider, but the buck, the little one, right? You know that one? No, I don't. Oh, well, you know the red rider, right? Yes. Yeah, well, they make a smaller shorter version of that for kids that are maybe three years old, four years old instead of 5 6 and 7. Okay. And yeah, the buck is kind of nice because it's about half the size and it's easier to conceal. Still got the wood stocking everything, but it's a lot smaller. You're just going to annoy him until they leave you alone, huh? Yeah, no, they laugh. I just make them laugh when they break down laughing. I take off. I love it. Yeah, so that works. So with the continuing with the tongue in cheek range report, first of all, I have, I use this thing for my sighting technique practice, which will help you understand why I've worn out. I don't know in my lifetime probably a dozen BB guns. They last a couple of years. This one is lever action, right? And so the stock finally fell off of it last summer. And I've been using it ever since and since then, the trigger, or whatever, whatever it is in there, it's a lock that trigger has gone bad. And each time I cock the lever, the thing goes off. So now I got a repeating lever action. All I got to do is cock it. I don't have to hold my finger on the trigger. I just keep cocking it. It keeps firing. So it's time to get a new one. That's like Chuck Connors, and the rifleman, you know? Just keep it racking that thing goes off every time you cock it. I like that. Yeah. Yeah, it took me by surprise. The first time I did it, it took me by surprise the luckily there was just hit the hit the ceiling. I was inside the house. Shooting at varmints, it weren't supposed to be in the yard. But I didn't break the crystal chandelier or anything. But the serious part of it is like when I was a kid, one of the things I would do with the practice is that it was fun. As I take the BB gun and I go about 20 feet back from the wooden fence on the farm in a plywood land, as I fly with land, I would fight them and pull the trigger and the BB would usually hit within a half inch or an inch from the slide, but every ten fly would get splattered. And you'd know you got them because there'd be a blood spot on the fence. And what I ended up doing over time, you can call it a good habit or a bad habit, is I've gotten to this point in life. We're inside of 50 yards with unless it's serious business, then I'll make myself actually take time to use the sites. But inside of 50 yards, whether it's a 22 or a shotgun or a BB gun or whatever, I can't even barely get myself to use the sites because I'm throwing a bullet, just like I'm throwing a rock or a baseball. When you're throwing a baseball to the catcher, you don't have any sights. You just instinctively throw it and you hit pretty accurate and that's what I'm doing with my sighting technique. So one is there's got to be a name for that. And two, I don't hear much talk about it. Is that any sort of a serious training technique and or a legitimate way to shoot a gun and let me add that if I shoot at if I think of 22 and shoot at a rock that say 40 yards out there or let's be safe here. Let's not shoot at rocks. We get a dirt clod. And I'll usually hit within a couple of inches of that dirt cloud if I don't hit it itself. Maybe every third or fourth time will actually hit a two or a three inch dirt cloud, but all the other times it's within two, three inches of that. And this is all for fun. This isn't serious business.
"chuck connors" Discussed on Six Degrees of WTF
"Shift binding herself in dark near empty building within these walls. Liza deadly secret forcing vow to face both her own traumatic past and deepest fears in order to confront the malevolent force. That's intent on destroying everything around her. Sounds really good It just it got cheesy toward the end. It was starting to get wrapped up in a really pretty little bow whereas the way it was leading up was it did not look like it was going in that direction but did a great job of building tension And then the ending is really like what watched it for me. Yeah yeah and that's so that's really upsetting. Because i think it had a lot of potential so that one i i mean just man. It's one of those. If you can just watch the first half and don't worry about the end you can have. Some really good scares nice. I found out then. Yeah it's it is worth checking out. I'd be curious what your opinion is. I'll watch it much okay. My number six was tourist trap now. I'm sure that a lot of people if you watch all these movies and you're like this one beat out. Some of those others which i saw this one was released in nineteen. Seventy nine has a rotten tomatoes score of only forty percents audience for a forty seven percents. Synopsis says a vehicle breakdown strands teens near a madman's desert wax museum filled with lifeless dummies. It starred the only person i knew in it was chuck connors and i remember him from old yeller and then i think he was in some western on tv back in the sixties. Or something like that but this so the movie is stupid stupidest. Hell it's campy it's fun. There's a little tension nothing too scary and honestly the end. Visual is the funniest fucking thing that i have seen in so long and i don't feel like i'm really spoiling anything about this movie. But basically this dude chuck connors lives out in the middle of nowhere and this dilapidated place of the as all of these mannequins. And he's able to control them through telekinesis but he has people convinced that his brother who lives with him. Who's doing it. But it's actually him ends up. Killing these gets all except of course we have the final girl but he had turned all of her friends in two mannequins. She escapes and as she's driving off. They show her in this jeep. With top off. With all of her mannequin friends in the back of her car and she screaming and it freezes on her face. Like while she's making this manic face with her mannequin friends in the car with her. And i laugh for so long after that. It's not a scary movie. It's entertaining. I gave it two stars simply because it was fun. And for the extreme giggle fit. I got out of the last scene. Okay all right well. My number six was very unexpected. I was putting this in the category of madman and hell night and dreading it a little bit. Because you have this weird psychotic obsession with like early. Nineteen eighty s mel especially with a horror movies. Yes so i just assumed this is another one nine hundred eighty one. I just assumed this is gonna be terrible. So i went in with very small expectations. The movie is happy birthday to me. I will admit. I love this movie. I'm going to say i love it too. I was very surprised so just really brief synopsis. On rotten tomatoes preppy virginia could be the ones skewering classmates who skipped her birthday party years before. Now this was some good old fashioned. Vengeance It was going all sorts of places where i was like. What is this movie about Because you had the whole This girl had it was almost like she had lost her memory and was getting treatments like experimental treatments right..

"I am 6 40 live everywhere on the I heard radio app. Story today. President Biden is going to be meeting with Boris Johnson, the British prime minister here in just a few minutes. As a matter of fact, talking about a bunch of things we got new numbers from Labor Department, the number of people applying for unemployment benefits fell for the sixth straight week. As we continue to to reopen here. Labor Department said that jobless claims fell by 9000. The number of people signing up for benefits did exceed 900,000 back in early January. But we have been on a steady decline ever since. Joe wants to know if you want a breakfast burrito. Mm. No, not in love with the idea, okay? Already had a slice of banana bread today. Kim Jong un also passed on the breakfast burrito. Yeah, What's going on with that guy he is last is losing. He's lost weight. And what does it all mean? So little information comes out of the hermit kingdom that you're just scraping around for crumbs as to what they have planned. What's going on? They say if he simply slimmed down to be healthier than that likely improves his position at home and provides more predictability, perhaps for other actors in the area like Japan, South Korea. And the United States who may have greater confidence that he actually is running the show. However, if his sudden weight loss is due to a health condition and not appellate on, it looks like the jockeying for his Thrown maybe already happening behind the scenes and that that volatility could mean trouble for the outside world, because what are they going to do to get to that position? And what kind of splash will they make? If you saw somebody that you hadn't seen for a while, and they lost weight? Would you in immediately assumed that they were sick? Well, here's the thing. It's Kim Jong un. This is a guy who loves access, right and in every in every way From what we've heard about him. He's not somebody who's going to be disciplined to get on the peloton. He's not going to be some be someone who's disciplined to just have vegetables and lettuce and water and no carbs. You know he's not going to go keto on us. He just doesn't have that self discipline. So it's totally plausible that it's a health issue. Because how else do you drop weight that quickly Unless you have extreme self discipline well, and if you've got that much weight to lose, it can be noticeable. I mean, if you're up over £300, and you dropped 40. People are going to people going to notice. I mean, your clothes fit different. I mean, as an example, one of the news agencies went so far as to compare enlarged images of his wrist. His wrist over the last few months. They took a picture from November and they showed that his $12,000 watch looked like a rubber band around a piece of sausage at that point back in November, But more recent photos show him wearing that same watch. And the strap is actually a little bit loose on his wrist. And they're saying that that is the proof that he, in fact has been losing weight now. Who knows the Hermit Kingdom line. I mean that that phrase is a perfect example are a perfect picture of what we're dealing with in terms of trying to get information out of there. The other. Uh The other thing they did was when Um, when Kim Jong un met with The South Korean president Moon A few years ago, one South Korean newspaper sat a bunch of experts in of room and had them watch footage for hours to try to figure out What they could about this guy's health and his body. And they suggest that all they came up with seven hours later was that it looks like the guys wearing lifts that he's wearing insoles. So he looks taller compared to other leaders. We saw that when he met with President Trump. I mean, that guy was wearing six inch heels. It looked like like giant platform shoes because Donald Trump is a huge person. He's a tall guy, and he's 62 or 63. And, uh, up against the guy who is at best five ft. 10, maybe and three bills. Made Donald Trump looked like a giant strong fit person. Maybe maybe he enlisted doctor now. Maybe Kim Jong un put himself in a minivan and made his way to Houston, Houston. Doctor now put him on a strict diet of boiled chicken, and he dropped the weight.
