The Audio Adventures of Harry & Meghan
"Less than a year. Since michelle obama's podcast lawn spotify have landed and other big proposition. Harry and meghan will be delivered into your is in the new year in the form of the incredibly uninteresting. Lee named podcast arch well audio Rebecca what is the show going to be about almost already forgotten it. E- hiring stories from inspiring people. It's you know it's corporate kind of stuff you know. They might not be working royals officially anymore but they certainly get involved in anything that's bit but dirtier a bit edgy. So it's going to be very lifting content An i i don't know unless they start sharing things about the personal lives. I don't know how to appeal. It's going to have in the long term. the style of it. I mean we only have a trade list. Go on so far but the style is notably. Podcast i'm not that corporate. We can eric lip sherie restore no say it. I think it sounds really nice. With your accent ultra. Ultra ultra audio. I mean rene shall we guys. I'm harry and meghan one of the things. My husband and i have always talked about is our passion for meeting people and hearing their stories and no matter what the story the usually offer you an understanding of where someone else's coming from and at the same time remind you in some way of a story about yourself and that's what this project is all about to bring forward different perspectives and voices. The perhaps you haven't heard before and find common ground different voices. Different perspectives could be less establishment an elitist than a member of the common ground. They must it's just i am no nothing against either of them personally and i'm sure it'd be perfectly listenable but it's the this idea that that telling stories that haven't been told as though there are hundreds of protestors out there who've been doing that for years Yes but i'm not. I personally don't resent them. You know someone who makes similar shows to the ones they're describing i. I've kind of always thought the most celebrities get involved in podcasting. Jimmy collins is everybody he does drive up listenership for podcasting and ultimately that's a good thing for everyone making cast rising tide carries ships. So something more in the sex is good. I mean things that knowing me arch well audio is production company. Name rather than the brand name. But maybe that'll be fixed later on show it will be. I mean people have said to spotify. They had problems with royalties so maybe this is their acquisition of gimli. I'm not gonna say it's paying off but this is another coup that at least uses some of the things that they bought because that style that informal so we just heard in the trial is meghan. Markle is season actress but even so to produce prince harry to sound like that. I imagine must've taken actually quite a lot of effort and that's the kind of thing gimblett. Good isn't it. I mean for for spotify. They they've got a blinder of year They signed up. A lot of people have acquired companies. They're positioning themselves that you have to basically use the spotify app as your podcast app because it will combine shows you can get publicly from. Rss feeds with shows exclusive to that platform. And this just like michelle obama on a job. Rogan will do that. And they're they're playing a blinder. Will it be a super successful show if it was them solving family problems. Why do you think it is the rebecca the four. I mean i'm using the short end of calling them royals. I know technically. They're not in the official practicing royal family but four royals. Why do you think podcasting would appeal. Where it's hard to imagine a royal. Even an excommunicated one doing a regular radio show. Tv show you know making would not be doing fine witchy quick answer probably because they can edited shit. You know it's very. It's very safe way for them to they can achieve things. They make themselves sound relatable polka like having a friend in your ears but also it's obviously going to be edited very carefully so it can be presented in this in the package. They've got in mind. I'm not gonna lie. I mean i might listen. If they drop a few hints about their private lives. I mean on that does their willingness to allow certain vetted meteoroid is asians access into their private lives contradict with what they're doing in the high court. I mean you know. They're suing associated newspapers. They're suing a picture agency for invading. Their privacy can they have it both ways yes. They need to make living but they are making a living by selling access to themselves. Well i think that's very in line with what they're doing that they have decided that it's going to be entirely beyond their own terms. And that's a mixture of legal giving exclusives owned media. Have got a documentary thing with netflix's well as they've got this spotify so yeah i mean i think it fits the pat now whether it works out. We'll see. I'm sure it'll be absolutely fine for them I think they also know that they've got to by being totally against the press which is pretty much what they are. They need access to their own media so social media. Podcast and the netflix tally to to get their own voices heard. They don't need the inbetween of the sun. The daily mail to communicate to the to the public and done that to you. They've created their own channels to to speak to subjects directly. It's interesting 'cause. I think we have seen recently a bit more of a celebrity. Push back against this idea that it is a trade off. I think you know for you know decades. We've accepted as fact this idea that if you're famous you owe us certain amount of your personal life. It comes with the territory and we've just kind of let that be you know. Just the fact. Yeah well now we're seeing push back. I think you awareness. That mental health has contributed to the celebrities. Are saying why who says you know. And i think having their own social media pocus platform etc has really boosted that movement towards no. I'll tell you what you can have. an from. Sports point of emu say work in terms of getting people to the platform. And i'm sure it will but they're investing so much money. Do you know how they judge whether it's a success. I mean what's the metric because way they make money is by converting into premium subscribers or selling them targeted ads. You know a jet for model to have. That's that's so poke. If you're spotify subscriber endanger ads on the music. You will still get ads on the po costs. So there's there's an ad model there. I'm looking forward to make an harry. Doing s- quest based and dodi shots but they will re reads the ads in michelle obama's show. Maybe they'll have a third person a stunt character. He'll do the reeds for them. Who knows some courtier. But that that's that's the market. I but for spotify a whole you remember the music. Pit doesn't really make any money but they need to do is shave. A couple of percentage points off the royalties. They pay all the volume that they pay the record companies to make the whole thing profitable so if i was them and i was saying hey only thirty percent of the audio consumed on spotify is music now when we come up to rights negotiation. We have another look at that so by being broader they have a few levers they can pull. It could actually make their operation much more. Profitable nothing postings. Partly way to do though

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.

"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..

"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" 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.

I mean, you you you have maybe cards with e Musone, maybe you you haven't EMU tag. Maybe you have a pet EMU. That means the world to your family. If if emus are, you know, highly sensitive topic for you, you do not want to be part of this next door. Now, I told Bubba Bubba. You know, being the the one who tries to look after the feelings of people a little more than everybody else. He said, Rick this this could be difficult for people. And I did make the point. We're not talking about dogs and cats here we're talking about emus. Now, some of you, though may say, well, the EMU is is the dog and cat for me. And if that is the case, you got real problems with the story coming up, and I want to warn you not to look at it. Not to listen to it. It will be difficult. If you see an EMU is just an extremely large chicken. I think you're okay to move forward on this it we certainly don't want anyone to unnecessarily run over and kill emus. Let me be no one's a fan of that. You're not ask this question to this happened in Australia. That was my next question. I was gonna try to do the thing. It's all so far away. Right. Do we know was he running over his somebody else? During the wild. Yeah. Why did you see the video? It's I think after you see the video and hear the audio of the joy, I probably gonna go. Well, let me let me ask you this. Does it evil? Got a weird. These are the kind of people wearing a disguise, right? The guy who's doing the video right this. I haven't seen it. I'm just reading the store. Here says he's wearing a appears to have a moustache wearing a hat and sunglasses each. That's what he does. Look like, that's what he's wearing. I didn't know is that the skies. I guess they're saying it like he was trying to keep us for known who you not somebody comes into Bank with a with a hat on this from sunglasses. They're trying to identify who it is the society the Royal Society for the prevention of cruelty to animals, I bet they're very upset. The are SPCA of Australia. He's using an f-bomb and Allie doesn't like emus. He he saying f-bomb emus are are they a nuisance in Australia. They're wild lock that he hits at least ten in the video. Of course. Now, the video does have over seventeen thousand views on Facebook. He is screaming this is blinking. Great. So he's you know, he's he's got a screw loose. There's no doubt about it. As he mows down emus. But I just want to warn you. The the first of all this is in Australia. It is it isn't dogs and cats. But it is a large bird. So so I can't fly, but there are birds. And so we've had experiences with EMU here on the show. But some of them running as hard as they could exact trucks coming in. I just wanted to. I wish I could talk to him you just left. Go left. Get off the road there. They just running. So. They don't. Are they they're wisdom is not not you could tell a couple of them were like Brian rake is not as big nut. Right. But I mean, let me ask you this to what what I can't. I'm trying to understand the purpose here. If you run over an EMU that's a pretty big bird. It is a big. You know, how if you hit a deer on highway here of the damage it does to your vehicle. It doesn't seem to be doing a lot of damage. Yeah. It's like knocking Domino's over. He's rolling.

"Available for livestock by the West Australian farmers. These emus found that the cultivated lands were good habitat for them, and they began to four into farm territory in particular, the marginal farming land around Chandler and Waga leeann. These Imos were just rolling through consuming and spoiling crops they left large gaps in fences were rabbits could inter- in 'cause even further problems it got so fucking bad. That military involvement was due to begin in October of nineteen thirty two. This war was gonna be conducted under the command of major GP w Meredith which bad ass major name by the way of the seven heavy battery of the Royal Australian artillery. So it's not like just to be clear. They didn't go get a guy, you know, some scientists or like some random motherfucker, and they say, like, all right, we're gonna make this new branch of the military. You're gonna, put together a militia and go focus on these Imos know they pulled an actual heavy. Hitter from the Royal Australian artillery and made him charges thing. So he was gonna command soldiers. They were going to roll through with Lewis guns, ten thousand rounds of ammunition, and they were just going to spray in make these EMU bodies hit the floor, but the operation guy delayed by a period of rainfall that caused the emus to scatter over a wider area if Vinci the rain ceased November second nineteen, thirty two at which point the troops were deployed with orders to assist the farmers. And according to a newspaper count, collect one hundred EMU skins so that their feathers could be used to make hats for light horsemen I don't even know what the fuck long story short. They end up going out on a second. They go to campy on they spy, they they spot like fifty emus, but the birds out of range, the guns, the local settlers attempted to heard the Imos into an ambush. But the bird split into small groups and ran. They were difficult to target basically the machine guns. Ineffective due to to the range and a second round of gunfire was able to kill a number of birds. Perhaps a dozen birds were killed. The next thing going to end this war was on November. Fourth would merit at the stablishment ambush near local damn in more than one thousand emus were spotted heading towards their position. Again, they're doing more with flightless birds here in Australia. This time gunners waited until the birds were in close proximity before opening fire, hey, look at that full. These human beings once shame on the Meuse full them twice shame on George W Bush. So the the birds getting close, right? These dudes ready to unload the fucking gun jams after only twelve birds have been killed in the rest bail out until before they could be shot. Just a total and utter disaster. The entire things fucking mess. None of it ever works out, not that many emus get killed. The military withdraws, the EMU attacks on crops, continue farmers. Keep asking for support the military's like, fuck you. We tried. We couldn't put off. In any way by the the fucking. The war ends. But there's a, they come up with another strategy to coal, the EMU population. And because it's depressing and I don't wanna get into it and I don't wanna talk about all these poor flightless birds being slaughtered. Let me just say that the second solution they had was a success. It was not degrading war, but they were able to get rid of fuck ton of these emus and in preventive being a problem anymore. But that is today's stuff to Wikipedia.

"Stuff to Wikipedia when you're high. The EMU war otherwise known as the great EMA war. What we're gonna talk about today. It was a nuisance wildlife management, military operation undertaken in Australia over the latter part of nineteen thirty, two to address public concern over the number of EMAS said to be running amok in the Campion district of Western Australia. First of all. It's emus. Right? It's not EMU. It's just EMU my Santa's correctly. EMU I believe so. Okay. Thank you because it'd be a real problem if we did the whole segment and it turns out I've been saying EMU wrong my whole fucking life, which is something that has been pointed out to me before I say milk instead of milk people get very upset about that milk just deal with it. Just to repeat the greet, EMA war. It was a nuisance, wildlife management military operation. I wasn't aware that that was a kind of military operation until we talked about the kangaroo war that took place on the same fucking continent. Australia is just animal chaos. I have to live on this continent at some point. Like I'm not fucking joking. I need to my life story will not be complete until I live on Austria for at least a little while I gotta get in on these EMU and kangaroo wars and fights, and get bit by some kind of snake in rushed to the hospital and have my life saved. I just feel I need to live in Australia at some point. So anyway, this whole thing is was apparently there were. It was unsuccessful attempts to curb the population of Eamon which as we know are large flightless bird indigenous to Austrailia. They, they actually in an attempt to curb the population of these emus employed soldiers with Lewis guns, which led the media to adopt the name EMU war when referring to the incident and during the war, a number of these birds were obviously killed, but the EMU population persisted in continued to cause crop destruction in Australia too long didn't read Australia, lost a war. Two emus a flight was bird. They would. They waged a war against e. news in lost. So here's what happened. Following World War One large numbers of ex-soldiers from Australia. Along with a number of British veterans took up farming within Western Australia often in marginal areas with the onset of the great depression in nineteen twenty nine. These farmers were encouraged to increase their wheat crops. They needed more wheat and they were promised assistance from the government in the form of subsidies. If they could grow more wheat and in spite of the recommendations in the promise subsidies, weet prices continued to fall by October nineteen. Thirty. Two matters were becoming intense with farmers, preparing to harvest the season's crop while simultaneously threatened to refuse threatening to refuse to deliver the wheat. The difficulties facing farmers increased big time by the arrival as of as many as twenty thousand emus apparently emus migrate after breeding season and they head to the coast from the inland regions. With the cleared land and additional water supplies being made.

And if that got shot, they would know that the snipers were active and ready. So that was one of the things that they manufactured. Yeah, pretty cool. Why didn't they always do that? It's one of anyone dying, trenches. I suppose you could have given every soldier an extra fake head on top of the. The head. And the really all like, you know, one of those costumes where it looks like you're writing in EMU. Because in that case, the head is always the person's head, isn't it? I guess. I guess it would be a massive EMU you with a which already wish them choosing. You could do it.

What a shame pantomime directors didn't also the first World War. So use of Deng in the second World War when the German army were enough Africa, a lot of the soldiers suffered from dysentery and what they thought they do is they look, the locals didn't seem to suffer. So they thought they'd look at the locals and they saw the locals with follow a camel scoop up. It's dunk an eater. Okay. So the Germans thought, well, we might as well try it, you know, might as well, right? And it turns out it works and that's because there is beneficial bacteria in this camel. And for that reason, these come along things were really good. Look for the Germans. They found them to be really, really good luck. And so whenever they saw them in the tanks, they would drive over them. And so what did the British do? We just play explosives and then. And so every time they went over a dengue, they got blown up. And so then they thought, okay, we're not going to do that anymore, but we still need the good luck. So what they would do is they go over ones which had tire trucks in them. And so what did the British do? They made ones with tire tracks in them by explosives in them Dawson live Brits. That's always one step ahead, Deng Deng all are uses of dengue in war, Vietnam war. The soldiers had, I think, which was a dog poo transmitter. So it was the t. transmit dog poo. No, sorry, it's fake. Radio is a dirty fido's of plastic PU, which is actually a radio transmitter, and it could be used as a homing beacon. That's great.

He says in the interview, if cow dog contract counter why cards? It saves us from phones, microwaves, I think there is a if a floor in the argument. Yeah.
