"I like to avoid it but I see less and less of it. So this whole new generation of kids like these kids who are the interns this year for seventeen years ago these these kids were five. And if they're coming from youngstown Ohio or something like that, they really don't know I don't know like Pearl Harbor along took before it sort of fitted into Bolivia. But I mean I don't know what what the timeline is with nine eleven, but it's an especially Sore wound for me. So I. I'll avoid it but like my kids will. Benefit and you know they've rang the bell on the new. York Stock Exchange on nine eleven said they did the name. So when my son did the names, he was only ten. Yeah they give them some doozy's they. Planned for like. Advanced. With you I think in New York always obviously be I love the towers of light. It's it's so. When I see it. Yeah. But I mean, just each each year and even here in new now tell this story it'll always I, think give me chills and it'll. Still always move me just because of the profound impact then had on my life from that day forward. Going back to what you said about becoming friendly with. Robbo Neil. Do you think that has helped with you and your and your wife at all? kind of maybe brought it full circle, right like I really thought that it might not be the healthiest thing the world for her but it was a hate to give it. Such a juvenile thing is like a bucket list. But she like when you think about Japanese culture, the idea of avenging your father's father father-in-law's that it's like you know not that I have all of a sudden turned into a Ronin overnight. But like Rob O.`Neil is the guy who killed the Guy Yeah killed my father in law and so when my life met him I mean she was absolutely over common she's like. I said, okay. We're going to try to get out to dinner with his wife and stuff and she's like believe me just getting me to meet him was enough. It really was like something where she checked the box emotionally more. So than me checking a box finish at sixty, four ounce steak or Really, she really did check a box emotionally. So and I think rob understands that like I think he's had a lot of people in that situation. So. He intimated something to her from that night sort of whispered in her ear and maybe it's common knowledge. Maybe it's not but it gave her the impression that she was on the inside a little bit. Like because you talk about over eating hatred, we'd never liked to blame many for the actions of few. So we were never the type to just write off the whole Middle East, but we heard news that there were people dancing in the streets in Brooklyn like some. Cultures and stuff like Carson Yeah. It made us it made us angry makes you a little bit racist and it makes you a little bit Stupid. But I mean that I'm glad to say that that's you know been tempered I still. Nine eleven I won't eat Sushi on December seven. Well, you know what I mean like that whole because I'm an idiot but there is no far-reaching they but what we did hate was this one guy. have him get three putting his head. The peace setbacks together take a picture. Not Mad about that? No. Yet a mets every back to upset. To meet them. Yeah. So so that was a win win for me. Absolutely. Yeah..

"In news I. Feel like. Every time you turn on. Turn on the TV every time you turn on twitter instagram, you're seeing something crazy this bob. Woodward Guy How in the world? did he secure eighteen interviews with the president? He's done it on name alone i. Guess whenever you're of but if you're the president, there's only two people that I don't think. I would ever want to talk to Carl Bernstein and Bob will seriously 'cause live I. Get get get to step and get out of no way. If I'm the chief of staff I'm like absolutely not no, you're not talking to eighteen times dude if. If anybody asks. Eighteen Times my automatic reaction is absolutely not there's nobody I would sit down with eighteen times. What could you possibly be speaking about for eighteen times mushroom build the case against someone The only thing I can think is that Bob Woodward has written so many books about presidents. Bush and Obama Clinton and all these other guys But maybe all. I can think of that trump also wants to be like Oh. Yeah. It's an ego thing. Maybe I don't know absolutely right like if I became super successful. If I did something that outside of the Barstool world where I got a bunch of money and did something and big a rod didn't come to me and want to interview me for their podcasts that'd be fucking heated I. WANNA on that. You want Bob where we're to cover you but you also gotta know there's some things you can't say it's out on tape ninety. This guy wrote all the president's men I mean, this guy is reporting stuff so like I mean. You're right I. Think it's an ego thing I. think he can't help himself I don't know how yes. Be Able to either no no, I wouldn't. Be You want to write a book about me. Let's go I'll sit down with you for eighteen times but I think he's definitely it sounds like he should've waited until after his presidency this year or in four years. So what do you think it's Kinda like when Lieutenant Kathy knows that jesup wants to say it on the stand. He knows that he wants to say trip wants to say, yeah, I knew I knew of course I do I do you need to remain calm nobody freaked out and for those who don't know what the fuck are talking about one of the big news stories is that Bob Woodward in this regard him you know he has an interview trump where trumps like yeah I knew before it was confirmed that Corona virus is pretty dangerous in bad played it down above a Bar You know so Not The best. But again by we'll deal you at this point nothing he says or does will affect negatively I feel like he's just got this with his fans his supporters Scott is like invisibility cloak around where it just it seems shocking but is it really? It doesn't really matter I. Guess I will I will say this. After the Great Zone Linski set it what the American public doesn't know is what makes them the American public I didn't have a huge problem with him trying to play things down because if you just hold the American public every last detail about everything. That would cause hysteria I truly believe but I think there's a difference. It down and being like, Oh, it's not the same as a common flu like Oh you play it down. Yes.

Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny in grave but stable condition after suspected poisoning
"Alexei Navalny, the face of Russia's opposition, a lawyer, a politician and a harsh critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Today, Navalny isn't an intensive care unit in Siberia. Suspected of poisoning reporter Charles Mains joins us from Moscow Charles How did all this play out and hasn't been established? That someone did indeed. Try to poison navalny? Well, it's still a developing story. And as far as whether you indeed was poisoned or not, is still an open theory, depending on who you talk to. We do know that he was fine home from Tomsk in Siberia back to Moscow. Along the flight. He didn't feel well, which prompted an emergency landing in Omsk not to be confused with Tomsk. Navarone now is actually in a medically induced coma on a respirator at the hospital there. Doctors say he's in serious but stable condition, although their quote fighting for his life Also lets his wife Julia, and his personal doctor now there's well that there were reports have some delays in getting access to Navalny initially with lots of police on the scene, So how did this happen? Have you heard any theories? Will his spokesperson I care? Young. Bush made comments to media here. So she says he just drank some black tea at the airport before the flight, and it's obvious that he was poisoned at that moment. Idea here being that hot liquid was more likely to absorb quickly into his body. You know, In fact, a passenger named Pavel Lebedev took a photo of navalny sitting at the cafe in the airport before he got on the flight. He appeared to be drinking tea and later the two of them ended up on that same flight. Andi. It's interesting that some point heat this level have noticed Howl's coming from the laboratory realized that the cries were coming from Navalny, and he ended up detail ing all this in a post to social media once he touched down in arms. So that was at the airport. What else can you tell us about the suspected poisoning? Is there any talk of a possible suspect or suspects or or a motive? No suspects yet certainly know among Navalny supporters. They find this to be no accident. Not surprising. They think it's politically motivated. Navalny has made his fair share of enemies with Siri's reports on corruption in the highest rungs of the Russian government and off Russian business. He's certainly been attacked numerous times before, including in 2017, when provocateurs doused him with a green dye that partially blinded him for a period. Then again in 2019 when he was exposed to some toxic substance while serving a month prison term, which caused some skin lesions, But he made it. Okay on course, there's this troubling pattern of enemies or perceived enemies. Of the Russian state being poisoned, Attacked, sometimes killed, you know in this prompts this constant debate here over who's really behind them, and specifically whether Vladimir Putin really gains from these brazen attacks on his opponents, and that the Kremlin says they're designed to make Putin look bad, and I want to bring in another voice here. This is Andre Kalashnikov, an analyst with the Moscow Carnegie Center here. Even if Kremlin doesn't know anything involved Squad Strange because it means that this kind of events are uncontrollable. FSB local If his B Saman emus off, no one could do it. Without essentially from Kremlin Now. The other option, says Kalashnikovs that the's orders or indeed, coming from the top from Putin. The point is, we can suspect but never seem to really know and interesting enough. The reaction to today's news from the Kremlin spokesman Was to wish Navalny speedy recovery reporter Charles Mains in Moscow. Thank you very much for this.

"Concept's or or we were abilities that we can exploit to direct political. Alienate anywhere other than just. Personal expression. Or on the other side, you know we've had four years of sort of like you know another half of the country, basically saying that we are being ruled by a hostile foreign entity, and the only like physical manifestation of that was just like one goof-ball hid Steve. scalise is fat I. Like you know I mean I? Do think you're right about that, but I do think the result of that is yeah. An increase in lone wolf behaviors. Everything can you imagine Cunanan supporters trying to do like a fucking declaration of independence, or like continental, Congress, or like? Pull off an organized the American revolution like they can't even decide which celebrities have been cloned and executed. How would that just split into like a fractional ongoing war against each other like it? Just you know he's like what we're. The only group of people in America still does things together and why I think they would be eventually the kings. In a broken up, destroyed America. It would be the Mormons. Do like lane activities at each other. They do like you know sack race. Literally! But like you know they're. They're killers, their killers. YEAH NO SHIT! The CIA knows that very well. They. They perfected being Americans. They are the descendants of the most far-sighted Feb reminds mid nineteenth century America who saw somehow they couldn't articulate probably, but they saw the fundamental incongruity between European Christianity and the American project, and also the centrality of capitalism, but also it's the poison pill that it's that it represented to like their social cohesion. They perfected both protestantism, and then capitalism and fuse them together they they're the only people who like solve the Meta of the United States. Is the from the ashes Anderson it. They will rule over US I. Mean it's amazing how much how far this country tried to go pretending we believed in like northern European protestantism. The thinking where like I say they're Corradi Allergy, pass religion is that it's good to suffer. It's good to feel bad because you think of anything less American than that. Yeah, no, like the whole promise of America is Internal Eternal Indulgence. Because of the of its resource plentitude like they've solved David solve the problem of eternity, and the problem of like of God is a concept being compatible with like individual like eternal spirituality, because heaven doesn't really make sense so the the the more you're gonna like being anywhere forever doesn't work like the time bound. Concept of the human ego does not correspond to the turn the concept of eternity. So what do they do? They say no. If you do a good enough job in heaven, you get to be God right because genius, nothing bedevils nothing devils. People in maternity more than the idea of time. It's why so many fucking crackpot statements about time like the. Zuma are going to save us or Zuma's or based, or you know I. It's all everyone. Has this fundamental fear of time? So it gets turned into? Time is fundamentally on our side. Because time is, it's the only interaction we have with the only physical interaction. We have with something on the level of A. God, so it terrifies us so much that we decide that it's fundamentally with us with whatever we believe, but Mormon solve that problem. If you will ascend, become time Yup, your. Won't over. It won't be this daunting thing over you because you will be it and they realized that capitalism cannot work overtime. Capitalism will dissolve social bonds to such a degree that anything you've any policy you think you're building in America is going to not be recognizable to your descendants. It will be something monstrous to you inevitably, because capitalism to dissolves everything like they in some way I think they got it because they now have have suborned in their little pocket, capitalism to their social order like their economy is just like paying each other to do the the shingles on the roof or like. A. Swimming Pool for the guys and the gals go out down into their unfinished basements every weekend and sell each other multi level marketing products, which for everybody else in America Mlm. Because, you run out of friends, but you'd never do that if you're a mormon guess who did what are the only groups of in America still having kids and can do them, so they're not running out of people anytime soon like the rest of US chumps. Yeah, I mean. How do you want to spend eternity playing a harp hanging out with the Angel Gabriel and founding fathers and Jimi Hendrix or whatever or do you WANNA live? Actually live on the ring world from Halo tooling around. With your family with all your friends and family, but you actually living in Halo and you're the God of that ring. You. Get everything that goes on. There is under you. Are you get all? All of the the opposite of all the fear and doubt that you live your life in, you get to experience forever. Yeah? Maybe. We should not. Not a bad model honestly. Well I. Think we should probably wrap it up for today, but I would actually like to take this time at the end of the show as long as you're talking about A. Love indulgence and kindness to recognize a little personal news from our producer and brother Chris our good friend Chris. Got Married this weekend.

"I can't wait for the Yugoslav war to crack off again. Due to the provocations of a man known as the Serbian guy. Fieri yeah. We're going to have like Josh Holly and Tom Cotton all the guys. We think we have to be afraid. They'RE GONNA lose the next Republican primary to like a guy that's constantly getting caught and Venus fly traps. Something we thought on the APP curtains. Me and my son are currently joined at the the genitals Chinese finger. Yeah, trout. So we'll be doing press conferences face to face now. Please please you not make fun of so yeah. Billion also personally killed like fifty on armed activists. They. Drove a mack truck over fucking like people sitting in the front of a on a highway. Seven in a pit of quicksand. Slowly sinking, talking about like exchange rates and shit everything that happened to people in man from uncle will happen to the conservative leaders of tomorrow. Yeah, but you know what they'll all survive it absolutely. Scenario will. We'll drive a car at ninety miles an hour into a tunnel that's painted into a wall. Iota of some kind, and it'll go straight through the windshield into the fucking wall, and then just the next day. He'll be given the thumbs up from like a hospital. Traction. He's the most hospital this man in the world I can't. He's GonNa be he's. Going to be the Obama of people with neckbraces like he's GonNa. Be the first world leader in a neck brace. Currently involved in a lawsuit against the ACME company. Happy eightieth birthday to bugs bunny by the way. Oh, yeah! Bugs bunny cartoons today. But I. said in the last thing I want to say in terms of this this role playing scenario, and by that I mean not not a hot one, not a cool sexy one, but like a really really bleak and awful one is like A. I think we've I think we're not really all that afraid of because, even if trump decides to contest this election or not concede it, it's hard to imagine like the the the the levers of power, or like the things lining up to essentially allow him to do that or or that like thinking that he was reliable or good enough that that would be worth doing I mean they might do it. It looked like Bernie. Sanders would win the fucking. That's possibly I mean. Joe Biden and they have a sure thing right there, and they're not gonNA. Fuck Up. You know why why why mess with a good thing and that's that? But I was just GONNA say back to like the example of that fucking psycho, who just murdered that guy in Austin? Because he was standing in front of his car, or like I said like the Gabriel, wortman type of Wannabe law enforcement serial killers in this country. Is that like the the factor is like regardless of the outcome whether it's like a close election or trump loses very convincingly a good chunk of his base and the Republican. Party will simply not view the results of any election that goes against them to be legitimate at all, and I think there's a question of how far do they really WanNa push it I sesa yesterday about how? Louie Gohmert S- campaign just beat the shit out of his challenger campaign manager. Yeah that's an escalation. So. Up several notches I mean like this is just sort of what I was getting out with like the second half of the show is that like trump has explicitly given permission to. Know basically like a federal fucking like just yeah, like death squad I, mean almost to escalate violence in liberal cities against. People who he regards in his supporters regards as enemies of the president and enemies of the country black people college students, just anyone who opposes them and can be tagged as being under no. Fascist Communist anti fog. Terrorist groups or whatever? Like privately hired mercenaries are, he's given them like the explicit green light to fucking do whatever they want to any. You know any any protest or anyone who challenges there. There are thirty, but like in terms of the people who are just his supporters who are not currently employed by the border, patrol, or ice, or fucking blackwater, or something like that the freelancers, the wannabes the fucking losers. I mean it's not like he's. Had to like dog whistle these people. It's more like a foghorn, but I think the question is like how explicit will the permission be for them to live out their? The fantasy is that they love sharing with people and social media and. I mean like I I. Think I've spoken about this before, but like a thorough Teheran personalities who I mean, that is the personality type who makes up most. Of the president's supporters and pretty much all right wingers conservatives in this country in general they seek permission for the things that they want to do from guests who authority figures and trump. Is there a figure like? It's an open question. I don't go very far with it, but I mean I. Think we're past the point. Where like I like that? Good thirty percent rump of this country simply does not regard. Political Authority that they don't agree with is legitimate. And the question is just how how big of an like how big of an asshole can one be up to the point of you know, mass murder are are. Are you going to see people? Take it and I don't know it's an open question I I'd like to tell myself that essentially people are doing what everyone else does. Which is Talk Shit on the Internet and just? Just sort of vent their spleen, but I mean we've seen examples of going a completely other other way leading to terrible outcomes so i. don't know that's an open question for me. I don't know how to feel about it for most of for well for my entire life and I'd say really since about the fifties or sixties, Americans are way more into talking than doing but. Maybe that changes I mean one way that you become a talker. Rather than doer is, if your quality of life is at the standard and your biggest fear is at falling away from that, but that is happening I. Mean People can't even afford to have kids, so let's see well, but what? I mean there's the the problem with any claim about like the people doing anything either good or bad, is it? Both cases total atomization lack of coordination like people are more willing to do something that violates like a not just the law, but serious ethical things if they feel like they're doing it with other people and the illusion of the Internet I mean I, think we're we've seen the degree to which? The, feeling that you have a community online doesn't translate into feeling like you have any any standing to coordinate your activities with anybody else in the real world. I would agree I i. mean I think like if trump loses. You're definitely GONNA. See a lone wolf attacks like some oath trying to like run drive into the Congress in fucking ATV with a bazooka around his. Shoulders, but that's going to be it. We're atomised. We are uncoordinated. We have no political or social..

"Play a scenario in which trump loses the two thousand twenty election, or like either of closely or decisively and decide simply not to leave office now. This is something that I I, you know. Many liberals have just sort of been goosing themselves with like this boogeyman of like. We're not going to have an election or trump's not gonNA leave off S and. I've been SORTA surprised somewhat skeptical of that, because essentially for me, it comes down to to really do that. You would need the backing of the military like they would be the tiebreaker and then. Like this and I truly don't have any I. Don't believe that the military really thinks that trump is like reliable, enough or on their side enough to to essentially do a coup in this country. I don't think he is to to protect against the threat of Joe Biden becoming president now yeah, but I mean it is interesting and like the the articles, pretty interesting and I. It's worth considering because. Because like I mean, let's be honest like. Is there any scenario to fucking insane? At this point to like completely right off out of hand like I don't fucking know, but this is here. It'd be here. It says on the second Friday. In June a group of political operatives, former government and military officials and academics quietly convened online. What became a disturbing exercise in the fragility of American democracy? The group which included Democrats and Republicans gathered to game out possible results in the November election grappling with questions that seemed less far fetched by the day. What if president trump refuses to concede a loss? As he publicly hinted he recently might do. How far could he go to preserve his power, and if Democrats refused to give in all, our scenarios ended in both street-level violence and political impasse, said Rosa Brooks. Georgetown law professor and former Defense Department official, who organized a group known as the transition integrity. Integrity Project. She described what they found. In bleak terms, the law is essentially. It's almost helpless against the president who's willing to ignore it? Using a role playing game that is a fixture of military and national security planning the group envisioned a dark eleven weeks between election day and inauguration one in which trump and his republican allies used every apparatus of government, the Postal Service State lawmakers, the Justice Department federal agents, and the military to hold onto power and Democrats to the courts and streets. The Stop It. First of all I would like to get at least for Virgil a copy of the dungeon master's manual for this sort of federal role. Game. Gaming System. It sounds pretty awesome. Oh, yeah, what are the classes? Well I. Think they just said here? you know Postal Service State Law. Patriot, emergency, podcast or Talk Eugene Goo. That's his own class. You need the expansion. Two plays Goo. It's worth it though. Going ahead here, it says he doesn't have to win. The election said Niles Gilman, historian who leads research, think tank called the Berggruen Institute and was an organizer of the exercise. He just has to create a plausible narrative that he didn't lose. We have norms in our transition. Rather than laws said Rachel, Kleinfeld a senior fellow in democracy, conflict and governance program at the Carnegie, Foundation who was not part of the game. The entire election season is something. A democracy expert should worry about. And you know like I mean essentially what they're pointing out. Is that we have laws to govern the transfer the peaceful transfer of power in this country. We just have, nor and you know. Trump has certainly shown no regard for them. heretofore and. And you know has made hints in recent interviews that he believes that like mail in ballots are gonNA. Essentially de-legitimize the entire election. What are you guys? Make this? It's unlikely it's just. It's just kind of a lot of liberal worry. Wart Shit, because in order to put all this together. Trump needs the backing of this sprawling bureaucracy, and he hasn't really completed his project of replacing career bureaucrats with apparatchiks who are loyal to him, he also very relatively small pool of people who are willing to fight and die for trump Mo-. It's more he's more filling. These roles with of conservative opportunists and people who are just kind of looking out for themselves in their opportunities in the private sector, and the other thing is. I think trump genuinely does not want to continue being president. Yes, only I think he's concerned. About is just getting the W to brag about it and say yeah. I'M A two-term. That's the end goal once I've done that I've completed. All of my ambitions I've gotten the high score. Also he can make you know at this point. He can make a lot. Lot more money in the private sector, which is why it's really funny that he's he he and his family, this ticky tacky fucking corruption like overbilling the government to stay at his fucking resorts and Shit when you know, he has an audience of millions. Tens of millions of slave bring imbeciles who are ready to give him. His money gave him their money. I mean other than the military would be the check on. Trump, refusing to look you know concede a loss in the election is that? I don't think he wants to be president and all. I mean I think. He hates it. He would be so much happier. I mean he wouldn't be happy, but he would just be like you would I don't know as as close to not being miserable is he could be not being president but again. I I sort of pull that back a little bit when I just think that like my analysis in thinking about him that his primary motivation in life is just not being seen as a loser or being seen as weak and the question is. How far would he go to avoid having to turn on the TV and? See. Himself talked about in terms of being a loser or a failure. To what to what degree like to? How, how far would he break the norms of American governance in like the peaceful transition of power to avoid just like the feeling that embarrassment well. The thing I don't think is going to happen is if he says I don't I don't I. Don't accept the results. It doesn't matter that the the US marshals will just take out of there. It's not a big deal and he wouldn't do that because that would look even worse, so he would back down like coward is the way that this could happen. The one I've thought of that seems like it's the only one that's possible. Is there some sort of specious lawsuits? That goes, 'cause you talk about how they have the trump..
"emu t" Discussed on Chapo Trap House
"It only counts for these people in this case like our do any of them want to end the war on terror. Because how many people are Lille realistically going to get killed by terrorism? Even if we don't lift a finger, not even fucking forget even military occupations don't close the FBI counterterrorism office and I'm not joking do that because realistically. How many Americans killed by? In a year, even if every, even if you get rid of the TSA and everybody could get take. A fun. Airplane, How many? How many times have you fucking watch some fucking? Moron Grope your kid while you're taking your shitty vacation gallison. You're like this is a wine we have to. We have to prevent against the point. Oh, one percent chance that anyone will hijack this plane. Yeah, yes, and it's like we have these absurd over the top things that other countries don't have, and it's not like people are doing the terrorism and the other countries on the airplanes that don't have what we do, but no, we're the number one target. Okay fine, one guy ear, maybe two guys year. How many people is that? And I and the thing is, that's correct attitude to have sort something like that because you're talking about a real cost benefit question, but here it's a galloping fucking pandemic, and most importantly not evenly distributed in exposure across populations concentrated like most fucking illnesses and and systemic pathologies culture among the most vulnerable people, and these are all rich asshole. Saying you people should be more willing to die because I guarantee you if. If you sat down and said well. What how many of your family members are you willing to lose to go to fund rockers? They'd say of course none because they are already operating from an assumption, that can't touch them, or maybe it kills an annoying old aunt that they were waiting to kick off anyway and the. Hey, now I get that armoire will. No, but you gotta spend a night in the Armar. GonNa say there's just waiting to spend a night in the spooky spooky mansion to inherit it. That's all you know on. Ethel was I've been waiting for that. That brought to kick off forever and finally cove did it for us, but yeah. I mean the other thing they point to is the just catastrophic number of people that die in car, accidents or in homicides in America. Every year is sort of like well. What are you GonNa, do not drive a car and I'm like well. I understand that like technically if you're under thirty five, you are more likely in this country to die in a mass shooting than of Covid, but that's not exactly reassuring, nor does it give me. Hope that we're living in a functioning country because we've talked about this before. And I think what covert is really laying bare is that we have like we're living in a failed state, but it's like two states. There's like the world's richest most powerful country like ever in human history is just grafted on top of like a massive failed state, and if you're in that little circle at top everything seems pretty fine to you and that. America is working just as it was intended to for you, but it's just like you know. Ninety percent of the rest of the country is just. Yeah. We're all just choking to death fucking. Disease or fucking dying in car, accidents or shootings, or fucking things that just simply don't happen in any other comparable country. Ah, do happen not nearly at the fucking rate that it does here I said that Shit about the fucking car accident. I said that's what happened with cars car showed up. They started killing. People and people were dying in huge numbers. who were not dying before that? Kids were getting run over in the street who aren't used to looking both ways and what the car industry did was invent Jaywalking as a concept and make it into a crime so that it was your fault if he got run over by this new monstrous machinery, instead of ever having any reckoning with what it was going to do to people, and then over time we normalized the deaths associated with it, and soon as I could tell, is the containment strategy failed because lack of infrastructure. Normalizing was the only way to go, and that's. That's now where we are like fully normalized, and that means that. Like everything else, it's going to get absorbed into like the cultural. firmament thing, too abstractly argue about without any assumption that you can do any real thing about it, so yeah, grandma dies. GRANDPA is your uncle. You're sick for three weeks. Maybe your mom hasn't enlarged fucking inflamed heart for the rest of her life, and that's just more of the stuff that goes, and then you just yell. Your cousin on facebook about it I just wanted to quote a tweet that Bill Mitchell did today. That Hell Yeah Hell. Yeah, this is so perfect because to me this this absolutely embodies the American mindset. The the the the Prosperity Gospel that that wraps up the minds of our our our take like. Bush wa the viruses over because I said so, and if we all say so, it started during it will lose its power. Power over US and the HASHTAG media will stop pushing it and it will from a propaganda standpoint be over time for us to create a new reality here on Social Media Hashtag ignore the virus. He's right. He's one hundred. Right. That's so much like they should give him. Alex Berenson because that's so much more like he's so much more philosophically interesting than really like any other conservative like his i. mean you think about his previous things like if there is a be big enough to kill human? Like the conduct that only covers. Lake! He's like clearly a man who's interested in the world in a way that like no one else's he is. And also like this like. Episodes like this. He gets in a fundamental truth that other people are I, guess to self self-aware to allow to escape their mind, which is, he's technically correct in that tweet because I mean all right say. We totally let covert go wild. It's not going probably end. Civilization will probably be able to absorb it even if you have this a huge spike in hospitalizations, and and like a a knock on effect of people, not being able to get care, it's GonNa bump up mortality, but not to a level that will necessarily endanger our infrastructure if Wow that's happening. We give up any hope that anything can be done about it and therefore stopped talking about it and stop making it an issue and all of a sudden. You have turned this thing into just one more part of being an American. You might get covert. When you go out while you might get shot, you might get. He'll walk doggie. and. It's just another thing another thing that we can't do anything about because our politics included the possible. Any possible alternative to this just got. One last thing here and this comes courtesy of our secretary of Education Betsy Devos. Obviously, you know we've talked about like the. There's this big big sort of fight going on right now and parents and politicians and communities all over the country about like you know. Do we just open up schools again in the faulk? Because realistically like we can't, you know kids are going to miss an entire year of education. You know like someone's got to take care of them. People got to go back. Big thing is that they need A. Set everybody if going to coerce everybody to go back to work, then they need to help these kids in school, so so here's here's. Here's a quote from Betsy Devos in an interview on the conservative circus on iheartradio from July. That's like a hell of a time I. Think about politics kind of. Is it sort of cloud show if you think about it, I'm magin yet. Bill Mitchell..
Rise of the Moa
"To introduce today's episode. I thought maybe we should begin by reading a poem. Robert Are you game. I'm game for a little little poetry. In fact it's not just poetry. It's Moitri I did not make that joke in my head yet. But maybe because I'm not as perverse as you. This is by the New Zealand. Poet Allen Kerr now's was originally published in nineteen forty nine and it's called the skeleton of the Great Moa in Canterbury Museum Christchurch. The skeleton of the MOA on iron crutches broods over no great waste a private swamp was where this tree grew feathers once that hatches it's dusty clutch and guards them from the damp interesting failure to adapt on islands taller. But not more fallen than I. Who come bone to his bone. Peculiarly New Zealand's the eyes of children flicker round this tomb under the skylights wonder at the huge egg found in a thousand pieces piece together but with less patience than the bones that Doug in time deep shelter against the ocean weather not I some child. Born in a marvellous year will learn the trick of Standing Upright here. You can find that poem by the way. In the nineteen seventy-nine Anthology an anthology of Twentieth Century New Zealand poetry and I really loved the cadence of that poem and also Feel like it. Effectively captures the the weird beauty of these reassembled skeleton remains one sees of the mighty? Moa We just did Marianne Moore in the paper Nautilus. This is another poem like that. I love a good poem. That genuinely ponders biology Like this deals with the evolutionary adaptation of the MOA the flightless birds of New Zealand And the idea of learning the trick of Standing Upright. Yeah now this is going to be a fun. Couple of episodes. I'm really excited about these episodes I think the the Moa one of the things. That's really keeping me going right now to research. Read about the Moa Envision. The more no matter what we`re. I don't know where you are out there as you're listening to this where you are in your previous understanding of the. Moa and other flightless birds But this is a this is a wonderful and weird story that has a number a number of connections to things. We've talked about in the past but also some new angles. We're going to be talking about evolution. We're GONNA be talking about First contact between man and beast. It's it's GonNa be a fun ride and there's no better place to start a fun ride than in New Zealand. The land of avian decadence that's right and the place where where the Mammal is truly debase. That's right because you know. Obviously the rise of mammals is one of evolution's most celebrated victory stories right because in part because we are of course mammals ourselves. And there's perhaps a sense of of the gods and the primordial titans when we consider the age of the dinosaurs that came before us in our own. Mammalian Age That we have ascended in now. Well Yeah I mean. There's very much a case of When you look at the Cretaceous Paleocene extinction event that caused the demise of the non. Avian dinosaurs It's quite clear that their loss was our gain. Yes but it wasn't only our gain the gain of of birds and we often neglect the just the exceptional dominance of birds for this as they the the legacy of of the dinosaur and then they they remain highly successful in widespread to this day. They remain masters of the Air. Frequent masters water and sometimes masters of the land is well now. Why would birds be the masters of the land like they've got the air that seems so much better than the land? Why even bother with the land? Well of course the obvious answer there is that is that to be. A master of the of the air requires a great deal of energy. And if you don't have to fly around you quickly find reasons. Not Too narrowly speaking. Of course we'll so if we're talking about mammals and avian dinosaurs or birds. Why exactly was it that? The loss of the dinosaurs was the gain of these other glades. Well because suddenly you have all of these These these niches in the In in the in the environment that open up this suddenly a bird can can occupy various creatures. Have the ability to occupy mammals included. But this is where we see the emergence of a number of these different flightless birds. This is where we see the emergence of terror birds in the demon ducks. And we'll get into some more examples of flightless birds as we go but yet to be sure we still have some amazing flightless. Land Birds with us today and some of them are are quite enormous. The largest of course is the ostrich. There are two species remaining. There was a third the Asian ostrich that went extinct roughly six thousand years ago. Yeah the two extant species the common ostrich in the Somali ostrich and they're both native to Africa. Yeah and I. Sometimes I feel like we sometimes overlook. How cool ostriches are. I find that it zoos. They for one thing. It's zoo habitat in an and a fenced in area. But then sometimes the ostriches in there with a giraffe seems particularly unfair because the draft of course is the is the tallest extent mammal that we have and It feels kind of like a dirty trick to showcase the world's the world's tallest extent bird with the tallest mammal which towers over right. It's like I'm trying to show off my muscles but then you put me next to a gorilla. Yeah but but we have some other wonderful examples of flightless birds elsewhere for instance. We have emus which are very fascinating to get a chance to look at an email. Just watching e-mu as it goes about its business It's it's remarkable the cassowaries one of my favorites mind to there's a castleberry here at the Atlanta Zoo. Yes see soul the the cast where who we've talked to on the show before with with a friend Jason Ward here in down about Cecil the cassowaries who her member Jason telling us that it's dengue is very like fragrant smells of fruit. Even though it is I mean not to demonize animals but when you get up close to it it is horrifying beast like it's beautiful. It's colors are beautiful. It has the blue and the red and the black feathers. It's gorgeous animal but also if you look at its foot it's foot. Looks like a puppet from a monster movie it is. It is just a killing things. Got These clause in the scaly scabby skin That's a tongue twister. But you look at a castle up close some time if you just WanNa be terrified and audit nature indeed. Yeah they they can. They can prove quite deadly. If you you know the the human comes into close contact with them and their they'd be begin engaging defensive behavior. Oh Yeah don't try to look at their feet up close if there is not a barrier between you. Yeah of course. We have other Flightless bird to consider amazing ones. Of course it's the Kiwi of New Zealand the The Nocturnal Ground Bird. All of these birds are what we call rat. Tights diverse group of flightless birds that were widespread across the scattered fragments of the supercontinent Gondwana. In their Donald Dominance waned over time certainly with the the rise of Homo sapiens. We still have all these various examples that still remain today. And you find you find large flightless. Birds will actually large and small flightless birds everywhere from New Zealand to South America. Without even getting into the the the obvious example of just other flightless birds. There's also the pink win. Yeah of course But wh this raises the question. Why do we have flightless birds? All over the place like this well In the one thousand nine hundred ninety s there was a wonderfully titled Theory Moas Arc. Which would you assume that all of these rats descended from a common ancestor? So in other words the the idea here is that a a flighted ancestor became flightless on Gondwana and then as supercontinent split this one flightless ancestor diverged. Into all these different flightless species okay. So you get one instance of these birds descending from an ancestor and becoming flightless and then the flightless one goes all over the place. And then there's continental drift right to supercontinent splits up and the flightless descendants of that one ancestor all go off into different places and evolve in different directions and they become everything from the ostrich to the Kiwi to the MOA right but one of the the issues with this This idea is that this would mean we'd expect something we'd expect say in New Zealand. Expect the MOA in the Kiwi to be closely related to each other We'd expect that Any any of these rats that live close together would also be closely related but subsequent DNA studies have revealed that this was not the case instead of Moas Arc. The model seems to be one of numerous cases of flighted to flightless evolution around the world so again convergent evolution This repeated instance of a flighted bird evolving into a bird. That doesn't fly which seemed so strange of a of a choice for evolution to make. I mean not to personify it too much. But but what is the advantage there I think we alluded to this earlier. One of the main theories about this is that it's an energy advantage. If a bird doesn't need to fly than it doesn't need to make huge pectoral muscles flapping wings that can get it into the air and if it doesn't need to make those big muscles it can spend that energy on something else. Sorry can just survive on less
UK formally leaves the European Union three years after Brexit referendum
"Happened the U. K. officially left the EQ European Union at six PM Friday DEC time they were more than thirteen hundred days of political turmoil in the U.

What is a Bunyip?
"I always thought the Bunyip was a mythical creature an aboriginal belief about a creature with supernatural for natural powers that lived in swamps billabong creeks riverbeds and waterholes that is until I went on my walkabout I walked about yeah I saw the devilish evil spirit nearly face to face living in the world of my rite of passage on my right of passage trying to make the spiritual traditional transition into manhood I so he was masturbating on his walkabout I was aware of Bunyip sightings before but I always felt that there were made up stories that were told to children to make them stay away from dangerous areas of water I had read the Bunyip said dark for face a dog sharp teeth and claws flippers a duck like bill tusks and even horns and that someone even described it as having ahead like an EMU and the body and legs of an elevator Oh my God this is just a mishmash of crap but most people who encountered them were too afraid of these futures to be able to take notice of their appearance on my walkabout I was admiring nature walking around the middle of nowhere and hoping to obtain the personal satisfaction that would make it a home alive at the end of my adventure that I took in the outback Oh my God I realized that most people usually recount their wilderness trek by exaggerating every detail of what happened happen to them adding all these details to provide extra excitement and trill by certainly not one of those storytellers my trip started out being very dull as I was and I was okay with that as I was not looking for any near death experiences are we ever yeah like maybe almost die on this about my adventure was about being far away from my towns and cities and living off the land or survive this was not an excuse for me to take a holiday or to shirk any work that I could have been doing as I consider my walkabout about to be an important institution of my Australian upbringing my mom is an aborigine and she told me about the cuss this custom and I was hoping to meet some interesting aborigines that I could communicate indicate with but this was the most walkabout I think in his rite of passage not drink his walk this is so weird but this is mostly Isley desert that I would be in and unpopular places that usually unpopulated so I might not meet anyone I wanted to embrace a lifestyle that is firmly rooted in nature and I had hoped to develop specific nick skills and talents that would allow me to respond to this rural environment this was a way for me to stop binge watching that sure is something that I had been and doing way too much of at the time I should have taken a camera with me but all I cared was my Swiss army knife I was used to sleeping out under the stars and eaten a few bugs in my day spiders riders Lizards Scorpions and snakes did not scare me eating them no just separate thought oh of all the the Scorpions spiders lizards Scorpions snakes this guy is all over I was actually really expecting him to start telling what he was watching Netflix that is as long as they were not crawling all over me I knew that is going to be a hot dry and dusty however hated the humidity and as I was not really fond of flies and Mazey's excuse probably Australian idiom I enjoyed eating kangaroo when I got hungry so I thought that I was ready but I did not possess all the the secrets of survival and I didn't realize until it was too late at read that the outback claims an average of forty lives a year and I study up all the basic survival tips for being in the outback I knew how to light a fire without matches a new enough to wear a hat and to try and stay in the shade during the day I understood that the only thing that really matters in the outback is having enough water to drink and and I knew that I could never carry too much water with me is I would not be able to survive without it my mom showed me how to locate rock formations that are prone to catch water and these with likely would be likely to be safe to drink from she also taught me how to dig up below the surface where I might find water when I came across a dry creek bread bed my big mistake was I had not spent a lot of time being in areas that are well off the beaten track areas venomous creatures are looking at every step of the way. This is exactly what I think because you know like Australia has the most venomous animals yeah well it's weird that he's like I've I'm used to bugs and venomous creatures and eating Scorpions the the Bundy up but now he's like but I'm not used to venomous creatures and I'm like bitch you just said you are what's happening okay continue my first Dan this adventure I made a spear and I practised practice throws you got all the time I was going with an open mind and I thought that I might come in Handy as able to navigate by the sun during the day and also get bearings from the stars at night most of my time was spent searching searching for food but I do not stop at several waterholes to wash up and but I did stop at several waterholes to wash up and if they're big enough I did enjoy a leisurely dip from time to time I I had no particular destination mind so there was no hurry for me to get any place as a result I was taking it slow and easy moving along at my own pace after sixteen days of being in the outback that's insane Oh my God or holy showcase I was like he's taking a walk hike like why is he doing all this person out now this is like his like saying is right of passage so it stays in days this is making more sense now because he's going on a two hour hike and he's doing like a nine week like survival on this little hike okay sixteen days of being in the outback it started raining and the rain continued for several days which made the Earth Turn Red Earth turn green and the river started to overflow I I was so happy to see the rain that I started dense that I started dancing around it was coming down but after two days of a steady downpour and I wanted it and I climbed up a tree to feed out of the puddles that we're all around and that is when I saw that I I was not sure what I was looking at but then I put it together that this was indeed a Bunyip Bunyip dry saw had a long had long looking in front legs in thick short hind legs that appeared to be very strong had long closet and it was covered in grey feathers God when it was in the water it was able to swim like a frog rog but when it got to the shore it walked on its hind legs standing twelve or thirteen feet being about the size of a small cow I felt safe being up in a tree but my curiosity was starting to get the better of me and I wanted to get a closer look I was not sure if this creature was a ferocious carnivore Predator or maybe it was just a gentle urban for but I stayed up in the tree thinking that it's better to be safe than sorry that is the story I am sticking with and you can believe me or not okay you don't even know what to say well I think it's funny that like twelve or thirteen feet tall that's two of me can you imagine to like how tall it is he balcony of my house and then he's like yes so it was about the size of a small cow well what an like if accounted up straight they'd be pretty

"emu t" Discussed on The Struggle Bus: Self-Care, Mental Health, and Other Hilarious Stuff
"Always more work to be done and if you don't stay somewhat ahead of schedule it can be easy to fall behind that that said he was still making time to talk me most days overtaxed and occasionally on the phone and when I asked if he wanted some space he told me please bother me and that he liked hearing from me. Everything was fun and flirty between us ever as recently as two weeks ago a couple of weeks ago. He told me he was about to give a high pressure presentation in front of some district a court judges for a class. He seemed nervous about it so I messaged him the day of the presentation to ask if he made it out okay he didn't respond. I was getting anxious about the radio silent so I sent him another message the next day and replied that that night to say that he was alive but tired. We had a brief exchange when I asked if he could chat on the phone that day. He told me he he was busy until the evening because he had to. Redo his presentation he had a panic attack during his first attempt because the room had triggered him related to pass abuse and he'd had to ask for accommodations nations. I responded telling him that there was nothing for him to be ashamed about and that he'd done the right thing. I asked if he wanted to talk another time and wished him good luck but he didn't get back to me. This set set me into my own anxious tailspin. Because I was worried I was being too overbearing and that he just didn't WanNa talk to me. A few days later he texted me joking about his reading and we had the short conversation about it but it ended quickly. I message him something funny the next day about a classmate of mine but nothing followed up day later still nothing finally on Wednesday mining's idea about the situation got the better of me. I called him to check in. He didn't answer so I sent him a message saying that I miss chatting with him that the radio silence had me worried and asking if he could get in touch with me soon I told him I hope he was well and that I'm in his corner when he's ready to talk. He still mia four days later. Here's my request for advice comes in this. This is far and away the least we've communicated since we met and my anxiety has been an overdrive since he started to go dark on me the newness and pseudo romantic nature our relationship has this feeling thanks so much more precarious than situations platonic friends and I'm worried about doing the wrong thing. I'm worried that I've been pushing him too hard to talk to me that I've alienated him and that he feels was like he can't talk to me without rehashing his stress and trauma. I'm scared that I'm going to lose one of my best friends who have opened my heart to and fallen in love with and that if we do start talking again that our relationship ship won't be the same he's always been very communicative with me in the past but I've been burned in the past by dudes if ghosted me months into a relationship I'm here in a new city surrounded by acquaintances but no close friends and losing contact. My favorite person has me feeling really lonely. It's pulling my focus and I don't know how to proceed. What if he just never responds shy continue to reach out. At what point do I have to let go and accept that it might be over as for my own mental health. I've started seeing a new therapist and I've been reaching out to my other. Close friends friends for support. I'm trying to prioritize healthcare and focus on my studies but it's been a challenge. I just miss my friend so yes thank you in that is from from Maura roads. Yes okay. Let's see so. I think that there's other stuff going on for you here beside you said I just miss. It's my friend but I think that there's more stuff going on for you here because you've asked some questions that I think are kind of catastrophic thinking and based based in anxiety which makes me think there's more going on than just like missing. This dude like you asked You said you're worried that you've been pushing too hard to talk to me that you've alienated him. It feels like he can't talk to you without rehashing stress and trauma and I just unless like you just left this out of the email to us. It doesn't sound sound like he's told you that talking. She rehashes of stress and trauma so I it's it's hard to see that as anything other than you sort of thinking catastrophically which just makes me think that there's more going on around like which makes sense around like being ghosted and I have to say that like you know I've been in situations before where like like brand new friendships burn really hot and bright and then they sort of like faded and I've had this with like non romantic friendships where like like I think I'm really connected with someone and like we're texting or having a good time and were I'm like Oh. This is like a real person like I can really see myself being friends with like I I met like a friend and then they sort of just fade into the background and I'm like Oh. I guess that it was a one-sided unsighted. I guess they don't feel the same way and it. It's really it's really hard. It's really hard to be ghosted and to have someone sort of not even ghosted but to have someone like changed the terms of the relationship like kind of suddenly. It's like you know you go from like texting and joking around in an in your case flirting to him just sort of being really inconsistently touch like that's the thing that's jarring and it's the thing that for me. I find like upsetting. When this happened to me. Recently I was was like I couldn't stop thinking about what was happening in what was going on even though on a grander level. I like I was sort of like okay like like this person and I just have like it turns out that like we think being friends means a different thing than it does and I was mistaken about how connected we are and that's fine like like this where acquaintances were not really good friends. and I think it probably would have been harder if it were like a romantic situation but it still sucks it still sucks to feel like you're on this particular path and then the person changes things and I think you're right to wonder like is there something I'm doing just not because I think that there's a you have done but just because I think it's always worth investigating like what you are contributing to a dynamic but it also sounds like in this case there are like a lot of unanswered questions like I think you you know like maybe he went through a thing. He had a panic attack. That's really rough like maybe he's going through thing and he's like pulling back Maybe is just like in a space where he doesn't really really want to be in touch with you or with people in general like it's really really hard to know. I just don't think you have the information but I guess I think that there are a lot of reasons that someone might light pullback without meaning all of the things that you're scared they mean and at the same time like this is a really really new friendship. It's it's like it's really hard. I think to know what the stakes are for someone in a new friendship and like what it means to sort of stop being in close touch touch with someone like Catherine all of a sudden stop texting me I would be like I would have like some information to go on because we're close friends and we know each talk a lot and we've known each other for years now but if like animals we have a relationship where I would just go to Katherine and be like what's happening but I think that like when it's someone who's like brand new to you and you don't have a lot of history to go on and you don't know them that well it's. It's really hard to know what's going on and it's also it's also this weird thing where it's like. It's is to it sometimes can feel like it's too new of a friendship to go to them and be like. Hey WanNa talk about our friendship because it's like you've just met so that can feel awkward Anyway Catherine. That's like a lot. What do you think tell me what you think about this situation. I have several things to say I okay. There's some days where I've sent you and like I say we've been friends funds for a long time and I'm like here's a gift of puppy eating spaghetti with EMU or whatever that doesn't exist yet I mean I don't know I'd love to say today but as and then you who will not give me for three days and there's always a part of me. That's like to Sally hate me so like I guess that's just a mistake right but you know that's totally normal number two sally. Oh You taught me this and I've I've. I've used it as practice. Imagine what you just wrote to us. A friend of yours says to you you can then look at it objectively and be like well of course. It's okay if this person did get back to me because they had a panic attack like he said or they're going through it or you know maybe they didn't want to get back to you. Mr Mr Ready to I had personal experience recently where on the same night of a show where something stressful was happening. I received a really sweet text from somebody I've corrosion on and a really sweet email from another person over crush on and another tax from my best friend. I didn't get back to all three of them for two days because I was dealing with something that I I because I didn't want to get back to them. In the moment of rushed writing texting hey good to see you too and then like that's opening conversation whereas like I want to sit with that and and actually have the conversation has nothing to do and that's not to say this person's being selfish but there is something kind about not rush texting or rush writing back to you especially if they're going through something right. You don't know third This is just my idea but from your beautiful letter that is absolutely. I think that if you read this back to back like you know you're already. I think you already know the answer is you're in love with this person and physically endorphins. endorphins happened in your body that make you feel like oh just want to be around this person. I want to contact this person and it hurts. It physically hurts when people don't get back to you when you're like feeling these feelings you know and I think people don't talk enough about what it feels like to fall in love with somebody want to literally just touch them and smell them and hold them and here everything from them. I and you know I have to go back to it. Sally says that this says a lot about you in the moment and and knowing that you're experiencing aaronson US exciting super super amazing feelings but if then it's bringing up other feelings of am I not good enough being pressured. I mean I. I don't know this for a fact but I can pretty much guarantee you that it's not you. You're not turning this person away but if you're feeling that you're doing something to push this person away and mental health wise you're feeling anxious about certain things this person's just bringing up other things and.
A brief look at Game Transfer Phenomena
"Research is helping us understand just how differently video. Games can affect us than other media a few months ago, we talked about the tetris effect, which is when things you focus on for a long time show up in your dreams, like tetris or another video game. The tetris effect is a visual phenomenon but there are other effects video games can have on your brain. They kind of blur the line between what you see on screen, and what you see in the real world, the overarching term. For what I'm talking about is game transfer phenomenon and today's guest is a pioneering researcher on the subject. Anjelica Ortiz's dig, or Tari is a post doctoral researcher, who literally coined the term in two thousand ten and she's been working on this subject ever since she told us the game transfer phenomenon covers a wide variety of sensory modalities from gamers hearing sound effects, and voices to making involuntary movements with their fingers in real life. But when she told us exactly how deeply these effects are felt it blew our minds. Well, one of the most remarkable experience is with. Gamer seeing EMU with open video game menus when you're having a conversation with someone or seeing power, bars and health bars above people's heads when you're playing sports with your friends pretty intense, whether you've experienced this type of thing or not. Anjelica Ortiz day Gortari could use your help with a new study on game transfer phenomena. If you're eighteen to fifty years old, and you play video games for at least six hours a week on any platform than you're invited to participate in her study on game transfer phenomena online right now. Just visit game transfer phenomena dot com and look for the recent blog post titled gamers needed for web experiment on game transfer phenomena. The study aims to examine the relationship between game transfer phenomena and cognitive processes all you need to do to participate as answer a short questionnaire then complete three short tasks online. I did it myself and it was pretty fun. And by participating you get to play an active role in advancing research in a brand new field of study. Remember, you need to take it in the next few days while participation is still open. So what are you waiting for go? Take it right away. Or at least please share with your gamer friends in the name of science one more time. The website is game transfer phenomenon dot com.
Understanding Australian Indigenous Astronomy
"Right. This week we focus on the ARCO astronomy of another part of the world, this time from the indigenous people of. Another group of people whose lives depended on knowing what was happening in the sky from season to season are Pamela got a big continent. Here of what is the evidence of archaic astronomy from the continent of Australia. Well, what's kind of cool with a stray Elliot's? It's not so much ARCHE of strana me as it's modern anthropology that allows us to look, Pat back on sixty five thousand years of history with, with the aboriginal tribes of gelia were looking at a couple hundred different language groups. We are looking at a continent that has been peopled for sixty five thousand years, that hasn't undergone the same kinds of destruction that civilizations here in north and South America. Underwent? And so as. As we talk with the people who are there today, we can hear into days oral tradition evidence of Frincis, a meteor impact that was thousands of years ago, a supernova that was thousands of years ago, and we still they still pay attention to these stories. This is still part of how they live their lives and why they do and don't go certain places, and it's, it's really amazing culture, and they look at space in such a different way instead of having four seasons. Many of the different nations of Australia, Mark out six different seasons of the year that are marked out with when different of the constellations rise on the horizon, some constellations Mark out, this is when you should go and gather the eggs, this is when. These animals can be expected to be breeding, the dingoes for instance, it's different. And we've both had the opportunity now to be in Australia. I was there almost a year ago, thanks to Dylan O'Donnell and, and his, his got to speak at his conference star stuff. And then we got Carlin, I went on a road trip north from there into the, the jungle part of stralia north of Brisbane, and it was like the skies. There are just there stunning like it's, it's not surprising that anyone who, who lived there. With out light pollution and saw that sky. And it is, it's a Canadian we have dark skies as well here, and I've seen plenty of Milky Way. But the core of the Milky Way is down by the horizon. We see a little bit of it over the summer when the when we get to see Sagittarius and Scorpio and some of those constellations than the rest of the year. It's, it's, it's fine. It's fine. But, but there it is just right. Overhead it blazes, the planets moved through it, right. Overhead. There's like Ayman, if you have seen dark skies, you have not seen Australian dark skies. They are next level. They absolutely have the best view. The people in the southern hemisphere have the best view. Yes. To the core of the Milky Way that we just can't experience from from the north and like the peoples of South, America, and southern Africa. They include in how. How they Mark out the sky's the dark paths through the Milky Way. There is a tradition of seeing an emus spread out across the Milky Way were the coal shack nebula that super dark patch. I saw. Yeah. Societas once pointed out to you see it. And that that's only one of the stories, another one of the stories that are particularly love related to the Milky Way is they see the Milky Way as a dark river, through the sky. And it's the, the souls of men and women who have passed on to the heavens, that have their fires along that, that river and in some of their traditions when they see a shooting star, that is the soul of someone who died far from home returning. The home. It's cool stories. Yeah, I love I love that idea. What was it? There was a animation that came to a couple of years ago, but anyways idea of putting floating lanterns on like on a river and then letting them go and letting them all float downriver. You get this. They do that in, in Japan and China place like that. But it's, it's a very cool effect. So what are now you mentioned a couple of real big hitters. Supernova. Meteorite impact give me some more information. So, so I think the two really awesome things to come out of aboriginal astronomy is how they look at their crater covered lands, and actually maintain a history of. Yeah, these holes of the ground are actually craters, as, as well as their tradition of supernova. So let's start with the craters Australia is, is one of the oldest landmasses it has thirty confirmed craters that are well-structured. You look at them from an airplane, and you're, like, yes, that is a crater and the thing that really gets me is. They knew that these things in the ground were formed from things falling from the sky. In one case, the hen, very crater about four thousand two hundred years ago, a large nickel iron space rock hit central ustralia. And when it came down about one hundred and forty five kilometers south of siding, springs, it carved out a bunch of individual different craters. And when westerners I started visiting that land, and they had an aboriginal guide with them. The guide was like, no, we don't go there. That is the land that was formed when fire fell from the sky and, and right. They have a modern day tradition of fire fell from the sky. And formed this land, and that's oral tradition. That goes back four thousand two hundred years. There are many other craters across a stray Elliot that that they look at. And the various people know this was a crater here. Wolf creek craters is another one of these that is recognizes having fallen in this case when a star fell from the sky. And there are traditions of people going down in Orrell stories and exploring the sink holes and traveling them to through them to water in a great distant area, and it was a Mark of heroism to travel underground under these craters. And so there, there are clearly stories of when people explored and survived. And now people don't do that. Because. Those heroes did stupid things.

What Was the Emu War?
"The story of the EMU war. It begins after World War One. When soldiers returned home to Australia. The government was eager to show its support for veterans take land, the government said grow wheat, and we'll pay handsomely for it. It was a mission for the bright and hopeful for men eager to, cultivate, their futures as they cultivated the soil in Western Australia. You could say the plan was flawed from the start the government had ninety thousand hector's that's two hundred twenty two thousand acres to go around. But that wasn't enough for the nearly five thousand veterans who wanted it land was doled out as it became available and the choicest lots were given away. I the remaining veterans Gotland in Perth, which was not ideal for farming. What's more in the years that followed the initial land handout in the early nineteen twenty s Western Australia, combated drought frost and a significant rabbit investation while veterans labored against the elements and the wildlife mounting financial challenges from the great depression. Threatened to undercut all they'd been promised the trillion government had initially pledged to pay the veterans four shillings per bushel of wheat. But the Bill tied to that son was killed in the Senate another Bill proposing three shillings per bushel actually passed, but the veterans were never paid at last in nineteen thirty-one the wheat bounty act made good on the government's promised to pay for wheat at the staggeringly low price of four and a half Pence per bushel. Let's put this in perspective Pence equivalent to pennies a shilling twelve Pence into their twenty shillings in a pound in today's market one. British pound is worth about a buck fifty. So these veterans were being promised smallish sums of money to start and delivered way. Less originally promised a fifth of a pound per bushel and settling for just one twentieth of a pound per bushel ten times less than what was promised. However, by this point, the veterans were desperate to make money off their wheat crops, and the stage was set for modestly fruitful harvest, no one could have anticipated. What happened next in the analysis of history? There's perhaps no stranger Afo. The Australian IMO a flightless bird. The can stand about six to half feet. That's two meters. Tall and weigh close to one hundred pounds. That's forty five kilograms and at an even stranger battle of man with machine-gun versus giant bird, the giant bird one. But in warfare. It's essential to know the enemy, so let's pause and examine the bird the dogs. The veterans. We spoke with Eric Slovak bird keeper at the Smithsonian national zoological park, he said ammos are solitary for the most part. They do get together in breeding seasons, but emus would prefer to be by themselves. The exception is when their foraging Slovak lichens that behavior to humans going out solo to a fast-food lunch. He said, you're at McDonalds around lots of people, but you're not socializing. You're just there for the food. Okay. So they're big solitary hungry birds. Not much of a threat. Right. Multiply that Emilia envisioning by twenty thousand that's how many descended upon Western Australia in nineteen thirty two until a decade earlier in nineteen twenty two emus had been a protected species. After that time they were reclassified as vermin Slovak explained. They'll eat anything. They can get their mouths on without hunting. They're grazers. They like nuts and berries baby grasses, which brings us back to wheat yet. They'll eat that faced with a seemingly endless buffet of it. The opportunistic birds homed in on the veterans plots beaten down by weather at a volatile financial market. The veterans leaned hard on the government help us they implored so one major GP w Meredith bound up leading a military offensive against the emails, but there were a few conditions. The veterans head to foot the Bill for the munition Lewis machine guns were used in EMU combat and the veterans had to provide food and lodging for the men assigned. To this curious mission as a side note as cinema tougher from FOX movie tone, accompanied the military to film, the Email effort historians assume the footage would have been used in propaganda films to illustrate how the government was aiding its veterans, but spoiler alert the mission didn't go exactly as planned armed with the knowledge that had slingshot can take down an ordinary bird, you might hazard, a guess that a machine gun could wipe out Imos easily, but you would be wrong Imos are made to run and win shot out. They're going to panic and they won't move at any reliable direction and Imos legs had neck move with elegant fluidity while their bodies. Stay parallel to the ground Slovak explained the body looks like a wave legs. Good left. The head goes to the right, and they run in all different directions like dropped marbles Meredith and his men couldn't get a straight shot at the emus who stayed out of range of machine guns. Even when enterprising veterans justed putting them on vehicles and pursuing the birds as they ran the military wasted a ton of ammunition. Only. Two hundred birds of the twenty thousand were actually killed and not only the emails evade the troops. They destroyed even more farmland in the process tearing up the ground wherever they ran the veterans were dispirited and their land was devastated. Meredith had a lot to answer for why had so much ammunition been wasted. And was the effort, even humane. Then there was the matter of money veterans promised to pay for the IMO, but the mission ultimately failed could be forgiven. This example, ridiculous history. Can't be tied up conclusively with a tidy bow and some details such as who was ultimately held responsible. For the cost of the munition are unclear we do know that the veterans learned painfully from past performance that rifles not machine guns or the best way to handle nuisance EMAS. They continued their war in a one to one battle veteran against bird. And the Australian government later place to bounty on EMAS to help control the population. But finally, we do suspect that the FOX and Matale gopher gots epoch B-roll while on location.

"Crypto show against tonight is topic honest nothing about some really looking forward to learning i didn't bennett for project cole to me i was looking at quantum technology and china thank you so much thank you so before we get into the project then too much about the what's probably gonna blow my mind to tell about it to self how you got he would cost by wouldn't be doing to the point now yeah sure so my background is in information science dates onto i did my phd up in queensland's at the university center amyx and there are spent a lot of time in the dock measuring measuring photons so so single particles of life and we the reason i spend so much time in the dog is because single photons it's hard to detect single play and it can be a bit tricky to generate them as well turns out if you're able to do that then you get gain access to these quantum systems it was a photon is a quantum particle and exits these interesting companies like white particle ality or entanglement and some of these these things that you might have heard about but in most cases goes goes why head sometimes as well but yes so these by accessing these systems where i will to harness some of the properties in resources that are inherent to those systems and then integrate those systems into already existing technologies like for example of love chain and start to look at how those properties can enhance and benefit uses of those platforms today and we're in a really interesting space at the moment because these quantum technologies are transitioning from laboratory to commercial world and the technologies are available to to to basically make it happen and stuff to offer these let's effectively excuse me if i if i missed the point the other night this stuff this is very new to me so a we effectively bringing to saving ly amazing technology of the book tried and is quantum computing and quantum quantum techno it's a great yet bring it together so two of the most groundbreaking bits technology coming is the womb ready for this yes so we kind of creating a new field of science in a way or you feel the research field discovery and the world loves blockchain the world loves quantum technology it's one of those funny things this like i went say nobody but a lot of people wanna talk with them about once and technologies as you say it's like whoa that's one blown but we love it a thing so exactly we want to know more it sounds great and it's also a necessary because because quantum computing is on the horizon as well we're expecting the quantum computer to be acceptable for budget of about a billion dollars twenty thirty so we need to start addressing that yeah that's the thing like organizations with a lot of money able to technology and so google ibm governments are building these technologies quantum computing investing heavily in it because it's such powerful technology but the full of the quantum computer arrives we have access to these other quantum technologies that we can use to stop updating and upgrading current protocols on the internet that would otherwise be susceptible to the advantages off so that's what combining quantum technologies and blockchain is about addressing this issue and proofing attack my project is i wanna touch into that we've done a little introduction to quantum technology and the book china online with that so amy this is the you're working on cowardly joe's a little bit about in ways to stand about the project what you try to achieve this project so with with emu we're trying to comply combining technology and blockchain to address some of the issues that face uses of the blockchain today so for example using technology are we to address address issues of energy are we able to look at new ways of securing the creation of locks on a blockchain which traditionally in public chain is enacted using a proof of work mechanism more steak mechanism when you start to think about quantum resources you you see there additional tools your disposal so we can start looking at proof of intangible and there are public relations and you research in this area that coming out that we're able to to to look at and it's an interesting field so with emu to address some of some of those issues uses of usa security network security energy consumption through that quantum technology that the optimization of the for example tricia yucel power us we sort of work at when.
