"That's who he is. You know, they were the ones that molded Aaron judge into the person that he ultimately has become. And I felt great for her. I mean, forget about the travel. I just felt great, but that's my son out there. Look what he's been able to accomplish through hard work and dedication, et cetera, et cetera. So I'm going to run this passion because you and I have had so many conversations about trying to put this in the context within the, you know, within the context of the PD era and where the numbers went during that time. I was on get up this morning. They asked me what the number 61 means. And I mentioned that, you know, to me, that's baseball's Mount Everest. You know, every kid who grows up, you know, thinks about when they plug one of play baseball, they think about hitting home runs. And now Aaron judge is as many home runs as roger marist did in American League history. Those two guys are twins. And I thought about this. That is the Mount Everest of the sport and, you know, further the mountain climbing analogy, you know, the first climbers who went up Mount Everest, most notably Sir Edmund Hillary, did so without the use of bottled oxygen. And subsequently, a lot of other people have gone up Mount Everest and a lot of them have used bottled oxygen. That to me is kind of the same type of difference in baseball. There are other players, Maguire, Sosa, Barry Bonds who got to 61, got to 62 and beyond, but they did it under different circumstances. And it's a different accomplishment to me in that regard. Does that make sense or no? It does. And I think it's too early to frame 61 or wherever Aaron judge ends up going, I think this is a conversation that people are going to have 20, 30 years from now when they look back. And see how aberrational 73 Homer's were or mid 60s were. And then where Aaron judge fits in on that list because, you know, if Aaron judge were to ever and look, he may, you know, you put Aaron judge on the Colorado Rockies for whatever reason. And he hits 78 home runs in the season. And he's deemed clean. Is there an asterisk? Because half of his games were played at altitude and I get humidors, et cetera, but if you understand my point, there are going to be circumstances that you dramatically impact. All right, let's talk about this weekend series, the braves and the mets. I was laughing last night as we were all texting back and forth about this Sunday Night game. You and I living in the northeast have so many friends who are mets fans and I said a few years ago that I think the phrase till death do us part applies to no group of people more than mets fans who both love their team and are tortured by their team. And so last night, as the mets fell behind in their game and the braves were close in their game with the nationals, Andy Jacobson was like, hey, guess what, guys? Who are producer on Sunday Night baseball and he was a huge mets fan. Texas and say, okay, we already know that the mets are going to be in the wild card game and the braves are going to win the division. And hey, we get to have dinner in New York on Wednesday night. How cool is that going to be? And it's like, dude, come on. They actually have to play a week's worth of games before we know who wins the division. And on top of that, Carl, I do think. And I totally get perspective of folks like Andy Jacobson and Pete mcconville, Sarah langs. They all might feel faded being mets fans. I think this is a different type of mets team. And that doesn't mean necessarily going to win the division, but it is a different group of players for me. Up a 180° from all those expectations. But it just goes back to what I just said. Cubs fans were the same way. Red Sox fans have been the same way. Philadelphia Phillies fans are very skeptical about where this team ends up going. Look, the Atlanta Braves were winning divisions left and right. They won one World Series. I mean, for all, for all their success with Bobby Cox, there was a group of those fans that said, we'll never win the World Series. And obviously that changed again with Brian snicker and company. So yes, it's completely different Cohen makes it different the owner, showalter makes it different. Guys like Canada and Escobar, marche, when he comes back, there was a reason that the team was put together with the personalities and the experiences of those players. It has shown itself. They won their 98th game last night. If I'm the mets and their mets fans, I'm upset that the Cardinals clinched by winning the number of games that they did and other teams are getting in with the number of games that they won. You know, your biggest curse is your plan and the division now that's got an Atlanta brave team that's going to be really good for a long time. You go to Philadelphia, Philly's team that's currently in the, in the we're winning now mode. That's your curse. You won 98 games. You're gonna win a, you're gonna win a hundred games this year, and yet you feel cursed. I don't buy it. The mets will win a World Series. Whether it's this year or in a couple of years, they're not those cursed things just, they just, they just feed and attitude and I tend to go on the other side of that attitude, which is will eventually going to win it. I mean, that's how this works. We are not cursed. It may take a hundred years, but it's going to happen. Well, and you know and I know that that's exactly how buck showalter's feeling. That's exactly how Max Scherzer is feeling. That's exactly how Jacob de Grom is feeling. It is a different feel around that team going forward. And at the same time, as you say, in a going up against the braves who are a great team, you know? And I told the story in the podcast before and I'll say it again when we were in St. Louis and had the braves and sunny day baseball a few weeks ago I walked up to a long-standing member of the braves and I said, I actually think you guys are a better team than you were when you won the World Series last year. And this person looked at me without hesitating a second said, I totally agree with you.

"Having said all of that, let's get to the video at hand. Here's Tucker Carlson. And again, because of copyright infringement, we're going to have to break it up. And then I'm going to talk to you about I wasn't going to talk about Queen Elizabeth. Listen, I have no love affair for the monarchy. I'm just being completely real with you, but I've always admired her from afar, not knowing much about her just because everything that she seemed to be involved in, at least that I saw publicly, right? Epitomized grace epitomized class and tradition. And tradition. And I'm going to tell you why I think that's very important. But let's go to the video of Tucker Carlson. Go ahead, gage. Good evening and welcome to Tucker Carlson tonight. Queen Elizabeth II died today in Scotland as you likely know at the age of 96. She was the longest serving monarch in British history. She was born in one world and died in another. It's not easy to maintain your dignity while living in the public eye. Most of us could not pull it off for an afternoon. Queen Elizabeth did it for more than 70 years. I want to ask you all, she wrote, shortly before her coronation in 1953, whatever your religion may be to pray for me on that day to pray that God may give me wisdom and strength to carry out the solemn promises I shall be making and that I may faithfully serve him and you all the days of my life. Okay, let's hold it. Let's hold it there. Now, typically guys, listen, I'm an American, you're an American likely if you're listening to this podcast and you're sitting there, listen, this was a monarchy. I mean, this lady was born into royalty and money. And all of this stuff, yes, that is true. And obviously, we fought the Brits for our independence, right? So, you know, I understand that. But that doesn't take away from the fact, again, that this lady was the epitome of grace grace and class and also represented it represented traditionalism. Just seeing that statement that she made a pun, upon becoming a queen, proves to me that at least initially and actually I believe throughout her reign that she was a woman of humility. She was a woman that respected God. She was a woman that revered God, and that's extremely important. For the most part, she did just that. And that was not a small achievement given the period she lived in. The week that Elizabeth was coronated, Edmund Hillary, a British subject from New Zealand to beekeeper, became the first man in history to summit Mount Everest. The achievement seemed symbolic at the time, Britain on top of the world. But in fact, Britain was already over, whether the British knew it or not. To this day, Britain claims to have won both of the 20th century's world wars. But together, they destroyed that nation forever. After victory came humiliation. The empire evaporated and along with it Britain's self confidence and ultimately its self respect. It's hard to believe now, but Britain wasn't always a regional banking center slash refugee camp. It was a real place with a history and a language and a culture and a genuinely remarkable people..

"That's on rough translation from NPR. Okay, wise guy, what's that? That's a good question. What? That's a good question what's next? What's next? It's time to answer last week's puzzle. Henry Ford. No, it wasn't Henry crusty. Yeah, you go. No, this puzzle was submitted, by the way, by following Brad Jackson from Sita rapids. I also mentioned his name. No, we got to send him a damn book. No, he hasn't caught us yet. If he happens to catch us however, if we get any calls from a guy named Brad Jackson, hang up. Anyway, here it is. Yeah. A mountain climber is what? There we go. Where he discovers a cave. Oh. Yeah. As mountain climbers do he decides to explore the cave and spelunk for a while. Spelunk. He goes in, looks around, and he discovers to his amazement to bodies frozen in ice. Obviously they've been there for a considerable amount of time, millennia, perhaps. Perhaps, yes. Maybe even thousands of years. He looks at them closely and suddenly, rushes out of the cave, yelling Eureka. He runs down the mountain. He gets to the bottom and he starts shouting to everyone. That he has found the bodies of Adam and Eve. Oh, come on. Get a life. How did he know? Now, we tested this puzzle as we do with most of our puzzles on Doug Berman. And he suggested that they had to stick on labels and said, hi, my name is Adam. They had gone to a seminar and they had the little hello. And we thought that was a good answer. Does he get a book too? This is not most people that I gave this puzzle, too. Didn't get it. No kidding. Yeah, did you get it? Yes, I got it right away if you recall. Oh, that's why you're not part of the test. My IQ was more than two digits. More than one digit rather. What is it about Adam and Eve that would make them unique that would identify them from the other than the stick on label? Other than the stick on labels from all the other people of humanity. When I had to stick on label thing, where they amway distributors? No, but they had this so security numbers on the one and two. Who was won, by the way, don't answer that question. Well, we know that Adam was first. Oh, we do know that. That's right. That's Steve. But what they didn't have. What they didn't have was besides name tags. Belly buttons. If you don't have a navel, you must be out of it. Did we have a winner this week? Yeah, here it is. We have a winner. Karen Keller. From Seattle, Washington is the winner. And for sending in her brilliant answer, our pal Karen will get an autographed copy of our mediocre book card. Meteoric, meteoric. Meteoric book. I keep saying that wrong. Car talk, and we will, as well, we send it on a plain brown wrapper so none of our neighbors will know that she listens to this show. Now I have a dilemma. Yeah. I usually, at this point in the show, I say we have a new puzzle. Sometimes I'm even brave enough to say we have a great new puzzler. And the second half of the show. But I'm kind of torn. I have several puzzles that I'm contemplating using. And I think I'm going to resort to two crummy little puzzles. Is that okay? Can I sign? So anyway, so I'll do it, I'll do it now. We have two crummy little puzzles coming up in the second half of today's show. So stay tuned for those in the meantime I guess we'll take another call. Wait a minute. Because you want to read something. I wanted to read something because here we are talking about this guy climbing a mountain and finding Adam and Eve. And I happen to see this little news item in the paper about 6 years ago and I cut it out as you see, it's already getting Brown. Yes. As you know, Sir Edmund Hillary. Yes. This is commonly given the distinction of being the first man to climb Mount Everest. Yes, I believe that. However, Sir Edmund Hillary, although I know he wasn't the first man. He did leave Erickson. No. Edmund Hillary did not in fact he was not in fact the first one to reach the top. The guy who reached the top no one ever heard of him. You know what? 'cause he didn't make it back down. No, his name is ten sing nor K was that right? He was the Nepalese Sherpa guide or whatever the heck they call him. And he was the first one who was carrying the blankets. He was carrying everything, probably. And Edmund said, go up there, ten sing and see if it's safe. And then he comes down, Hillary, and says I was up there. Who what about this guy? Why don't we why don't we celebrate tensing nor K day instead of Sir Edmund Hillary? He's a sham this Hillary. Indeed. Boy, Thomas, thank you. For enlightening. I think he deserves. And you waited for 6 years to spring that honest? I've been waiting for you to have a puzzle with a mountain. If you'd like to call us the number is one 803 three two 9 two 8 7. Car talk. This is rich calling from Washington D.C.. Hi, rich. You know why? We're off the air. All those politicians down there have blackballed us. That's correct. What's up, rich? Okay. Rich. Are you a lawyer? No, not even close. You must be the only guy in D.C., who isn't. You must be a plumber there. I live on Capitol Hill and I don't even work in the district. Good for you. I go out of the city every day against traffic. I see everybody suffering going on going on in and I'm heading out. Obviously, you got more brains than them. Well, we'll see. All right, let me tell you, this is rather interested. A very kind uncle gave my wife and myself an old car of his, because my wife only commutes about two, three miles to work each day. Yeah. And it's a 1980 Volkswagen dasher diesel. And we were given this car when we returned from Australia, we were overseas for a year and we're given this car in January. So we were rather happy because my wife could now drive to work, not a problem. And about a month into having the car the battery went absolutely dead. So I figured, okay, because the glow plugs were a bit low, we have those replaced and we ended up putting in a brand new battery. Two months later, brand new battery dead again. Now we bring it to a garage which gets rave reviews from the local consumer reports and so on for fixing foreign autos, there are supposedly experts and diesels and they look at it and they say, listen, your wife must be leaving on the lights or the air conditioning or something because that's what why are they always blaming on you, huh? Well, I made sense, I think, because actually I found my wife where she had left the lights on once anyway. And I'm not blaming her. She's a terrific lady. That's not the problem, but she flaky generally or is this an isolated incident? No, no, no. This was somewhat isolated. This is generally down to earth and not flaky. No, not at all. Okay. All right, so now the battery goes dead, and I'm jump starting this about every three weeks or so, trying to figure out what's going on. Finally, we bringing it in there into the garage once again, because the battery, it worked actually fine for about three months or so, not a problem. The battery once again goes dead. So they wanted to see, they charged it and then wanted to see how it would end up draining perhaps. So they left them on the lot for a few days, and they're trying to isolate with the problem would be. And the one of the mechanics is working on a car next to the Volkswagen. And all of a sudden here is that it starts turning over, and he said, gee, that thought I didn't know anyone who was going to work on the dash TV. He looked over, there was nobody in it. Great. Did I have a ton of my doorbell? Yeah. Talk to me, gentlemen. Should we get a priest and have the car exercise? Well, I can give you the universal incantation. Don't worry about that. Okay. That's great. The first time we encountered this strange syndrome. Phenomenon. Phenomenon. I remember that was an old one. Oldsmobile also a Buick or Buick, an old GM Karen was up on the lift, somebody was changing the oil, and all of a sudden we hear it cranking. And we thought clearly it was a poltergeist situation. We forget one of the guys was playing a trick and you could hear the thing. And before we could get it off the lift, it had melted the wires to the starter because it was drawing so much current having cranks for that period of time. When you crank your car, you crank it for a few seconds. This thing was cranking for a long time.

"They waited out snow and wind for two days at the south coal camp, which was at 25,900 feet. On May 28th was support from ang nima, Alfred Gregory and George Lowe, norgay and Hillary pitched a tent at 27,900 feet to wait until morning to continue their journey. Gregory Lowe and nima returned to camp after the tent had been pitched. The next morning, Hillary and norgay continued their journey wearing 30 pound packs. Hillary saw a path to follow through a crack between The Rock wall and ice and after passing through, they reached the 29,028 foot summit of chameleon at 1130 a.m.. Together, they spent about 15 minutes at the summit and Hillary took the famous photo of norgay with an ice axe at the summit. Hilary declined to have his photo taken so the only picture of the first people to ever reach the summit was of tenzing norgay. Snow had continued falling so their steps were covered, but they eventually made it down where low met them with hot soup. One amazing thing was Hillary and norgay's refusal to share who actually reached the summit first during initial interviews. Colonel hunt even stated they reached it together as a team. In norgay's 1955 autobiography, norgay eventually revealed that they were roped 6 feet apart and that Hillary actually did step onto the summit first. Fun fact, norgay was able to speak several languages, but he couldn't read or write so his autobiography was ghost written by James Ramsey ullman. Upon returning to England, Edmund Hillary and John hunt were both knighted by Queen Elizabeth II, tenzing norgay was celebrated and given a George medal, but sadly wasn't knighted because it's very rare for knighthood to be the bestowed on a non British citizen. Still, after the accomplishment, norge was able to open up a company to help provide trekking adventures in the Himalayas, and it's now run by his son. Now, you may be wondering what this has to do with Asian American history. Well, first off, we just wanted to start by sharing the history of climbing chome lungma for context. But on May 24th, 2010, Wong Lee reached the summit of trauma longa. She became the first Chinese woman and the first Asian American to successfully reach the summit of trauma longa. Not only that, but she also was the first Asian American and Chinese woman to have climbed the 7 summits and skied both the North Pole and South Pole, which is known as the explorers Grand Slam. She started her adventure in 2003 by summiting Kilimanjaro, then in 2005, she climbed elbrus in 2007, she reached the summit of Denali, the karstens pyramid, or puncak Jaya, and the peak of vinson massif. In 2008, she skied across the South Pole, reached the peak of Aconcagua and skied across the North Pole. Then she completed her journey by reaching the summit of chamoun. The history of chama longma, or Mount Everest, is a long one. And thousands have now climbed the summit. But it really could not have happened without the hard work of.

"Ends the chapter by pointing out that once you've achieved this great thing, quote unquote, the climb is over, the only place to go is down. And listening to you guys talk about exactly the same. The emotional intensity of being able to master this really tough task and having the joy of dropping into the moment feeling that purpose, fullness and that accomplishment. And then when it's done, you're like, rat, lever, press the lever again. That's when we're like, that's the flip side to that beautiful moment of knowing yourself in intense focus and purposefulness. Is it just it ends? I interviewed when you guys were talking about the game. It's the same thing. I interviewed crack hour in 96 after he wrote his book about Everest into cinema. Into thin air. Yeah. Incredible. Incredible story. And you know, I was thinking about that Netflix has a show called 14 peaks, which if you haven't seen it, it's worth watching. It's a documentary about all of the people who summit Everest. Going back to Sir Edmund Hillary, really did it because they had Nepalese Sherpa who did it for them, or helped them, or led the way or set the lines. These Sherpa never get the credit they deserve. It's always Edmund Hillary at the press conference, not tanks ignore his Sherpa. 14 pieces about a Sherpa. And Nepali and Nepali mountaineer, who wanted to do it for the Sherpa to get the credit for the Sherpa. And he did something no one has ever done before. And 7 months, he summited all 14 of the world's 8000 meter peaks. And it is harrowing, but it's fascinating. I suspect that he also does it for the zone that moment of leaving the world's cares behind. And boy, he must feel that let down when he gets down because he went right back up. Right back up and went right back up. Of course, once you finish 14 peaks in 7 months, then you're really going to have a letdown. It's a great story. And a lot of credit goes to nims die, puja, who is the Sherpa who did all 14 pinks and speaks in 7 months. I got to figure out how to write a book on how to control that, right? Because if you could turn it on and off, growing up when I was younger, I lived a life where I had everything really well off and then we were poor and then I had everything again and then I was middle ground. And so when I turned 21, I went to Lang city. But a $1000 on black, I hit it for the next 5 years every year on my birthday. I went down there and I hit it, I doubled my money. I walked out. Didn't bet on anything. I was implying. 6 year I lost, I never played again. I went out to Vegas with my buddies for a bachelor party. We're waiting in line to check in our hotel. I put a quarter in the slot. I want $800. I didn't gamble a dollar. The rest of the week I was there. And everybody's like, yo, I was like, look, bro, I made my money out and hit this thing. Shut it down. You're a rare individual, though. Most people can't do that. I know, when I hear that, I hear that all the time, so I'm like, man, people just chase the high. And I'm like, I had to hide. That was great. Cool. And once the high goes away or something messes it up, but like I said, once I lost, I'm literally walking in the casino, put a $1000 down. I mean, I watched the boards and I picked my one and get my feel, but as soon as I hit it, I take that money, I walk out. And the one year when I lost, I haven't done it again. I'm up like $6000. I'm like, I'm good. That corner, there's nothing better that I'm going to do in Las Vegas than put a quarter in the slot and when almost $2000. No matter what I do. And as you know, because you're a smart fella and you know statistics, there's no such thing as a hot streak. You have exactly the same chance of losing next time that you did the first time and will in the subsequent times. So are you maybe you're not maybe you're not an addictive personality. Do you think that's it, Georgia? Some people are addictive personalities and they want that high and once they experience it, they have to get it back. Is that amateur psychology? I'm sorry. Well, no, I think that I think that you're accurate in a certain state. I think that everyone has different things, though, that they could be addicted to. That's true. You have to just know what are the pits that are in front of you. Oh, doctor, is it addicted to? I think..

"Yeah, yeah, I was wondering about that. When you're talking about something that's sort of in between two creatures, the answer might just be like, oh, it's one of those two creatures. Or you could be like a tree trunk that's just spotted at a distance and it looks like a human could be a deliberate hoax. So anyways, that was the kind of answer there. And we've covered Bigfoot, yay. Yay. Module 6, very similar, the Yeti, or the abominable snowman. Oh, wait, hold on before we move on. Let me get that Bigfoot jam. Oh, yeah. Oh no. Watch out for the cable. Okay. Okay, so this is Bigfoot toe jam, and Bigfoot is two words. Oh, big foot. Okay. Carrie is opening. This jar, it's taking some muscle power. Yeah, it's got some tape on it. It's got tape on it. Oregon, Marion Barry, one word. Oh, that looks good. That looks like my kind of jam. Yeah. This is my jam. Actually, it's your jam, but you're sharing it with me. I'm gonna grab a big small spoonful. Interesting doesn't have like chunks of the fruit in it. It's very smooth that's been thoroughly pureed. And smart like fig like than I expected. Yeah, it's not quite the flavor I was going for. It's not purely sweet. There's an additional flavor going on there. Yeah, it almost has like a fermented taste. Probably from being inside the toes. Yes, so. Or that's how it gets fermented. But not bad. Just yet. Different. Isn't it? Okay. We'll take it that. I like that it's distinct. I was expecting to think this was very close to boysenberry. Yeah, no. A marionberry sugar fruit pectin and citric acid. That's it. Nice. Well, thank you for sharing. You're welcome. Okay. All right, so under the Yeti, so one of the important things to establish was, well, the Yeti isn't quite Bigfoot. It's usually described as being either gray or having lighter fur. But it seems like the same kind of idea of its origins applies that it's a humanoid type character. Usually it's reported to be ill tempered. Okay. The Bigfoot isn't always necessarily. Oh, okay. And said to be part of ancient folklore of the Sherpa, people who live in the areas of Nepal and the Himalayan mountains. So I'm taking them at their word for that. This is kind of fun. Who coined the term abominable snowman and why? In your answer, also note the mistake that the individual made with the name. Carries thinking about this. Okay. All right, when do you want to guess the term came about and what would the mistake have been? 19 61. No, 1963. And now you're like no 62, too bad. And the mistake is. If it were, honestly, maybe they wanted to go for abomination, so it would be like, bomb, maybe? I don't know how you conjugate abomination. A prominent of all. And oh, and it was a girl, so it shouldn't be snowman. So we owed the catchy term abominable snowman to a journalist named Henry Newman in 1922. Newman in 1921. Oh, damn. He spoke with explorers who had recently returned from Mount Everest. Those adventures described the legendary creature that their guides referred to as again apologies for my pronunciations. Mito Kang, the kingdom portion was properly snowman, but Newman made an error in translating mito as filthy instead of the correct meaning man bear. So originally, it was man bear snowman. But the filthy mistranslation was then rendered in English as abominable sparking the popular phrase we still know today. Interesting. I love the idea of people going to fucking Mount Everest. They're up there. They have altitude sickness around totally loopy, and they come back in their life. I swear to God, there's like a half human someone writes it down. Yeah, okay, makes sense to me. Absolutely. Fan bear pigs. Yeah. So then they had me briefly described 5 other famous 20th century Yeti discoveries. So in 1925, Greek photographer NA claimed to have seen a living creature near the zemo glacier, zemo. Wow. At roughly 15,000 feet in elevation, so I don't know if that glacier was named after the space lord and signed all of this figure was dark in appearance and was pulling at bushes upon later descent to bazi reports that the British geological party also came across footprints 7 inches long, again, not very big foot, but this is the Yeti. So I guess it doesn't have to have big feet. But inconsistent with some of these other stories, which they judged to be from an upright creature. Okay, so then in 1948, Peter Byrne was encrypted, hunter actually searching for the Yeti, he claimed to see it by that same glacier. Oh, here we go. So this is interesting. On a later trip, he came across a temple that supposedly had a Yeti scalp and finger. Okay, so I don't include it in this answer, but that temple that supposedly had the Yeti scalp and finger, I think it was the finger was purloined and actually shipped out of Nepal and guess which Hollywood star helped get it out of the country. Charro. It's one that we've mentioned on the podcast before. In fact, we've communicated with his spirit. Jimmy Stewart. Yeah. Which, I guess, shame on huge Jimmy's dirt. He helped smuggle this relic out of the country. Of course, it turned out to be just, I can't remember, but it's actually determined what it was, but it was not a Yeti finger. It's probably a human finger. Edmund Hillary is part of the lore of the Yeti. I don't know who that is. He is the famous explorer who was the first to climb Mount Everest. Oh, okay. Okay. So he was one of those who came back and was like, oh, you guys are so crazy over there. And he's from New Zealand. There we go. That's another thing I know about him. Along with the Sherpa tenzing norgay, but on one of his expeditions to other members of his party, Eric shipton and Michael ward discovered a one mile trail of footprints and this is probably the most iconic image associated with the Yeti, they took a photo of one of the footprints. And so if you look for Yeti you'll probably find this photo of a footprint in the sand with a pickaxe next to it for scale. So there are problems with this and I break it down and they break it down in the course and I do in my further responses. But essentially, if you look at all of the other prints, they look like they belong to the goats that lived in that area. They just happen to find one that looked like it was different from those. So I probably disconnected from those. And it looked like maybe snow leopard had stepped in the same place twice once with its front foot once, with its hind foot, and they'd kind of overlaid. Oh, right. Something that does look kind of humanoid. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Oh, that's interesting. I hadn't thought of that. Something just stepping in the same place twice. But taken out of context. Yeah, it always impresses me when people can do analysis and kind of figure out where the weight was distributed from looking at the footprint. Pretty cool. And yes, Sir Edmund Hillary himself, along with tenzing norgay, reported having seen large footprints in the snow, though neither of them was convinced that they were actually made by Yeti.

Juliet had become fast friends a little over two years earlier when juliet and our family moved christ's church from the uk. Pauline was about thirteen and juliet was around twelve and they bonded over their experiences with serious ailments that limited their normal childhood activities and often left them missing school for long periods of time and this is so easy to see intense friendships. In those tween years. I think are really common. I can relate to that totally like just as a teen girl and those friendships that you make at that time. But pauline and juliet. It soon became more. They spent huge amounts of time together and at the exclusion of pretty much everything else. They romanticize their illnesses and came to believe that their shared experience gave them kind of special bond at first is probably seem like a positive thing for their parents.

"A different kind of structure near the center. And i think on the outside. You've got something that's actually more populated by protons neutrons which is why they can have magnetic fields. Neutrons not electrically conducting. So so you've got to have some sort of proton type mechanism to have the magnetic fields so there is there is a structure perhaps with a gain of different material on the outside and the mountains. Check him out on wikipedia. There's a lot of information about the what we think the structure of neutron stars they strange things out very strange. What would the height of the mountains. A third of a mill or something like that in a edmund hillary. It'd be very disappointed thank you. I've loved the heat from you. One final question this week text question comes from John in western. Australia will get his Second question at the end of the Dice has hello professor. fred andrew. Thank you if your fantastic chap got a couple of questions relating to a few points. If being discussed in recent episode the first question is can you explain what we have learned about the interstellar medium from the voyage emissions and what the implications offer various concepts for interstellar propulsion such as buzzard ram jets light sales magnetic siles. It's citra let's talk a lot. One host to the the the interstellar medium so that's the region beyond the the influence of the sun. The magnetic influence of the sun is is is not much different from what inside the solar system just the tech fields of different strength of the field lines. Different way because he had you sampling. The magnetic field of the galaxy rather than the magnetic field of the of the solid south so in terms of any effect they might have magnetic propulsion systems is is the same as inside the solar system. I think that kind of idea of using magnetism to dry spacecraft alone is an all started. There's not enough own behind it. I'll ever light silencer a different a different matter that day. Yes they're electromagnetic because photons particles of electromagnetism but what you're doing is providing official source of photons by blasting the sale with the high energy photons from malaysia which might be around the air or something like that gradually accelerating the space craft up to Up to speeds comparable with the speed of light Ten twenty thirty percent of the speed of light which is very significant. Indeed and that might tickets to proxima centauri initial telling a by short in twenty years the he had a so. So the interstellar medium itself would would not behave significantly differently from the medium the interplanetary medium. If i put it that way there will be differences. But it wouldn't be a showstopper for example okay now John also asked about the suns binary. We not going to really dwell on that. Because we did talk about that. Recently he did ask if proxima centauri could be a candidate and the answer is not probably more likely it would be a star of the same category as the seldom having been inside cloud of gas.

"Into the present moment and a lot of people. Seek that kind of clarity or that kind of quiet to only feel one thing when you're in pain it blocks out everything and so even though it's aversive and might feel unpleasant. There are other things around that sensation bodily responses emotional responses. That can really make you know dabbling in a little bit of consensual pain. Feel fun or rewarding or make. You feel resilient like accomplished something. It's it seems like a simple question. Do people like pain. For pain's sake and yes. Some people do but for a lot of people. It's just more complicated than that. Will it certainly seems to be very human that we like struggle to some extent that if life or easy if there were no problems if we never had to work hard for something and struggle for something life would be pretty dull i. I went to an ultra-marathon not as a participant. Just as a watcher and i watched people run hundreds of miles without sleeping and i talked to these runners and i asked them. Would you do this if it was easy. And most of them said no. It wouldn't be the same if it was easy to do. And i think that there is something i think about sir edmund hillary and his reason for climbing everest he said because it was there. You know there's this curiosity about our limits. I think that's very human and it goes back throughout human history so incorporating pain that you consent to that you can opt out of suffering that you cannot opt out of is not what i'm talking about when i write about paint on purpose so when you're able to control your experience and dabble in something that feels bad that opens up a kind of window into your own resiliency and your own capacity and so when you combine that with the biochemical slurry a feel good chemicals that can follow such an event it makes sense that humans have been playing with pain on purpose for about as long as we've been keeping records. We're talking about pain. Why people seek it and and why people may be needed. My guest is lee coward. She's a researcher and author of the book hurt so good the science and culture of pain on purpose..

"Jeff bezos and his fellow passengers on the space flight that made headlines. Yesterday were just that passengers. They had no operational control of their spacecraft. Their rocket was built by blue origin. Accompany bazo was founded twenty years ago but does not lead. It has thirty five hundred employees. None of whom were on the flight. While bezos and his fellow passengers had no control of the technology in which they risked their lives. At least they trusted twenty. Twenty one technology by contrast their flight was timed to coincide with the day. Nineteen sixty nine when neil armstrong became the first man to walk in the moon. A current iphone has seven million times more memory than the guidance computer on his spaceship and over one hundred thousand times its processing power nonetheless. Armstrong and his fellow astronauts risk their lives and their technology. And those who built and operated it yesterday was also the birthday of sir edmund. Hillary the mountain climber who is the first to reach the summit of mount everest. Hillary born in nineteen nineteen was thirty three years old when he made the ascent however he was quick to credit. Tibetan mountaineer tenzing norgay. His fellow climber who's partnership was essential to their success like the blue origin crew. The apollo eleven astronauts and the mount everest climbers. We are all passengers. On the ship called earth each of us depends on others and unreal. Sources we did not create. None of us is truly in control of our world or our lives.

Life was no more predictable for people. In the biblical era abraham was called to follow god's leadership while not knowing where he was going. Moses was a fugitive from egyptian justice when he was called to confront the egyptian pharaoh joshua and those lead were called to step into the jordan river while it was still flooded. David faced goliath with no armor or weapons. Apart from a slingshot and some stones. Daniel went into the lion's den armed with no protection but god's presence. Peter defied the same religious authorities who arranged for jesus's execution. Paul followed god's macedonian call when he had likely never been to macedonia. Here was the difference. They put their lives in the hands of a god who claims to know the future sustain us in the present and redeem the outcomes of our lives. Not even jeff bezos for all. His wealth can see tomorrow. But god says he can tell you the future before it even happens. Our lord promises in isaiah forty three to when you pass through the waters. I will be with you. That's because god reigns over the nations and causes all things to work together for good to those who love god however it is natural to wonder how we can know that all of this is true if we are going to trust our lives and our eternity as to the god of the bible. How can we know that he keeps these promises. Comparing current bibles to ancient manuscripts shows that the bible's we have today are remarkably accurate evidence from archaeology and fulfilled prophecy substantiates biblical truth claims contemporary stories of lives transformed by god's presence in power demonstrate his continuing relevance to our world at the end of the day however. We cannot truly know whether to trust anyone until we trust them. You cannot know if you should marry someone until you marry them. You cannot know if you should take job until you take it. You can and should examine the evidence but then you must step beyond the evidence into a relationship that becomes self. Validating it is the same with trusting your past present and future to god.

I believe this is the right attitude to life for everyone. Bob dylan was right. You're gonna have to serve somebody and you have to trust somebody whether that person is yourself.

"Kind of slumped. And I thought Just want am I doing here? Do I think I'm a jet setter? I think I can run away from my marriage by coming to a party and Katmandu. And I thought I don't really know who I am or what I'm doing. And the next morning I called up Jane and her name had been given to me by a friend in New York, and Jane asked me over to lunch. She was staying and a wonderful little hotel called the Tushy del A. Which means good luck in Tibetan. It was a little yellow hotel and we sat for lunch on piles of carpets, and we ate lentil soup, and I just felt so cozy and relaxed. It was like Being on a river that I could just float on without thrashing. So I rented a room in the inn. This little hotel and it cost $7 a night. And we hung our laundry on the roof. And Jane's said, Wouldn't you like to come with me on a little hike up the Himalayas to see my llama? Well, nobody else had asked me to do anything. So I said, George and I bought a pair of $5 sneakers and a yak wool jacket and we got into this little tiny plane and careened through the Himalayas. It was flown by a Bush pilot. And we landed in a little pair, but wasn't even airport. It was just sort of dirt road on the side of a mountain. And we were greeted by Sir Edmund Hillary. And, um Hillary took us to his camp. He gave us a little blue tent and he invited us to have dinner with him. So we sat in this tent with a Coleman lantern on the table eating lentil soup. And he talked about how much he owed the Nepalese and how much they done for him and how he wanted to do something for them, and he was building them a hospital on this mountain ledge for the villages nearby. And actually, we've been in the plane flying up hospital supplies and I thought to myself Last night, I was at a party with Imelda Marcos and just one flight from the Philippines could've built 12 hospitals. And here I am, with this tall, angular pillar of charm. Edmund Hillary, who is building one, and I thought This is the other way. I'm really part of that life of luxury and pleasure and imagining that one could escape sadness and the hopelessness of life by going to a party. And here is this other way. So the next morning we did hike up the Himalayas. Unfortunately, it took two days and we got to this mountain fast. Yes. And we entered. The monastery was guarded by dogs with huge spiked collars and the wind was blowing and the prayer flags were with thing. And this lama greeted us at the gate, and he led us up a tall, tall ladder. And the top was this little room and it had piles of rugs around the edge and a little brazier in the middle, which smoked a sort of delicious smoke and relay. And on top of the rugs but also under the rugs and something about that place brought a delightful dream my way. Perhaps it was the scent from the brazier. Or perhaps it was the fact that there were all those minds in that monastery, pushing themselves towards another level of consciousness. But industry mem I danced out of a little flower shop where three people said goodbye to me, and I danced to this Great symphony, which at the same time was a charming melody. And I danced down a cobblestone street. And I was in tune with my life. It was, though I was a note in the universe, part of the great music of the universe. And the next morning I woke up and I said to Jane, I think I had a dream about reincarnation. That's where I came from, she said. I don't think so. I think it's because you're in a Tibetan monastery. Well. Met her llama. And then I left her there to do her practice and I went down the mountain the way I come. And the next morning I spent the morning on top of a temple in Katmandu and I was thinking about my life and I was thinking about Where I wasan the temple, and at the end of it, I went to see a llama called Do Jim Rinpoche, A who lived in a little tiny house. On the edge of Katmandu. And When I went in, he was just sitting on a pillow and there was another pillow for me, and we drank tea. And he told me the entire story of where I'd been that morning and what I'd thought about And as I listened to him I felt myself drift into a great sense of peace. I felt more welcomed and more comfortable and more at ease with my life than I'd ever been, and I thought this is like a Confirmation of my dream up in the monastery. And I realized That You can escape to a party and make a gay time to try and escape from the inevitable pain of life or You can decide to go and sit quietly with a wise man and feel that your life is really in tune. There's always the choice..

Let's keep the dirt alert to its name today. Daily Mail exclusively reporting that an ex car dash Ian bodyguard who sued Kris Jenner for sexual harassment is now claiming that Kris Jenner groped his crotch and made suggestive comments while they were driving in her car. I could totally see her doing this, you guys so the person who is making the accusations is a former BART bodyguard named Mark McWilliams. And he worked for the Kardashians in 2017 in 2018, and this is an amendment to a lot of complaint that claims that Christian or groped him during an incident of her in her car, and this is what he's saying.

Is Mount Everest. Oh, yeah, Major Major. What do you know? Okay, so we're going to be getting a new project from Barack and Michelle Obama and their higher ground productions over at Netflix. One of these projects is called Tenzing, which is a movie based on the true story of the first man. To reach the top of Mount Everest. That would be Tenzing Norgay. Wow. So that's something to look forward to. I did not know. I mean, I've heard of that nature. Yes, but that's it. No, I don't know his story, man. I love anything. Mona has never said.

Just like the first that we've heard of. Ah, production that's happening. No, actually, they did stuff a couple of years ago and one of their documentaries about work in America and China was nominated for an Academy Award. It didn't even win. So this is kind of a new batch of project that they're doing via higher ground productions and Tenzing is known a Sherpa Tenzing and he was born in 1914. And he was one of the first two individuals known to reach the summit of Mount Everest. No oxygen. Yeah, and he accomplished that with Edmund Hillary on the 29th. So we know that we know now.

Let's face it. This is an audition. That's what put any pressure on you, But it could be funny could be right. You can also follow video on Instagram out Lydia News one and on Twitter. Lydia News. So you've got a you do investigative reporting your are better version of Geraldo Rivera. And we mean that sincerely. You've uncovered some pretty great stories here. The last Harry to you won't let you Are you trying to keep you a short on? Unlike Corrado, who loves to get half naked reverie is and Chris Cuomo. Same thing on you. You've done you've uncovered another big story. No pun intended. Reminded that I emailed this story to Bernie last night because we both enjoy like these crazy. The hypocrite, hypocritical Democrats psychos, and so I saw this article on Elle magazine where I was like, I wish there was audio to it, and it wasn't just actual writing where Kamala Harris, she tells this story she's interviewed. She started her life's work when she was a very young girl, and she talks about a time when she was being wheeled through when Oakland, California civil rights march in a stroller with no straps. Because that was back then, and she fell out, and her parents didn't realize that she fell out of the stroller. This is the story she's telling, and then her mother doubled back. And then, of course, Kamala Little. Kamala was understandably upset, and her mother tells a story about how she was fussing and Harris says, And she's like baby. What do you want? What do you need, and I just looked up at her and I said Freedom. Freedom, tweet a freedom like she's a kid she's doing. She's two or three years old. This is just getting good. Right. So you know at that age if you're in a stroller, my kid is three. She doesn't really do a stroller anymore. So she's saying she remembers something at two years old, which is nonsense anyway. But then I'm like this kind of sounds familiar to me where I heard this before. Then I remembered Martin Luther King Martin Luther King Jr had a similar type of story, he says. I will never forget a moment in Birmingham when a white policeman accosted a little Negro girl, seven or eight years old, who was walking in a demonstration with her mother. What do you want? The policeman asked her gruffly, and the little girl looked him straight in the eye and answered Feedem. She couldn't even pronounce it, But she knew And it was beautiful. Wow. She is so camel A Harris's plagiarizing Martin Luther King. This is South on believing himself. Listen, that is flat out that is Joe Biden like plagiarism. Right there. Down to the freedom of the phoniness of these people is unbelievably incorrectly. All right. That's her. Her tackling is to look. They're all phone is Hillary Clinton was no better yet. Hillary Clinton. She claimed that she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, the man who climbed Mt. Everest. It turns out, though, that she was born in 1951. And he climbed Mount Everest. I believe the year was 1953 was after she was born, So she was clearly lying about that. I mean, that's what that's one lie. She's also said she was shot at in Bosnia. Then videotapes surface. They were standing on the tarmac in Bosnia, You know, no problem with dignitaries. She wasn't shot. She completely lied. And then she affect member the whole affecting the black accent when she was campaigning, I think against Obama take a listen I don't feel no.

The Apollo missions brought back eight hundred forty two pounds of Rock and soil from the Moon nearly early twenty two hundred different samples but there's one sample that planetary scientists monoxide Wadhwa says is the most interesting of all Apollo one zero zero eight five Neil Armstrong collected it on Apollo Eleven. He was about to step back into the lunar module and. He turned around and just he had this rocks and he saw little spaces and there and he knew that these geologists on earth would be just so excited to study these materials just scooped up. I think nine scoops of soil that he put into the box six and it became one of the most well-studied samples of the Apollo mission she says geologist named John would at the Smithsonian noticed white flex of rock in the soil which he identified as Iraq type called a north of site and include him into the Moon's ancient past and this casinos quite a leap of imagination but he proposed that the whole of the moon had at one time in the past somewhere close to four and a half billion years ago been almost covered with a global magma ocean ocean of lava and so this was a revolutionary idea at the time because people had thought that the moon had formed cold and so it completely changed their idea about how the moon farmed how the terrestrial planets form like the Earth is well. You know really changed a lot about our. Our understanding of planetary science but WADHWA has a second and more personal reason to appreciate this sample. I met my husband because of this rock. My husband is Scott Parazynski. He was with NASA as an astronaut for seventeen seventeen years from nine hundred ninety two two thousand nine and after his retirement from NASA he actually he's a mountaineer as well and he had always aspired to climb Mount Everest Scott's boyhood heroes were Neil Armstrong and the climber Edmund Hillary who made the first confirmed affirmed incentive Everest with his partner tenzing norgay in honor of them he wanted to take a moon rock from Apollo eleven to the top of Everest and to bring back and never some rock at the time Wadhwa was the chair of the NASA committee that grants access to the samples for scientific purposes but this request she says was definitely out of the ordinary and I just remember it because it was a really funny discussion the committee hey what happens if that moon rockfalls Donna Crevasse you know and and not that race Scott would be. Going Down with them with that moon rock of but Scott made it to the top Wadhwa never met him and moved on from the lunar sample committee but then a year or two later she saw a friend suggestion pop up on facebook. You might know Scott Parazynski and I respect took said hey how did your expedition go and did you return the moon rock to NASA and he sent me this note back saying well. Actually I didn't send the Moon Rock back to NASA. I actually sent it to the International Space Station along with an ever summit rock and if you ever happened to be in Houston I would love to meet you and thank you for making that possible and so I happened to meet him and that was that I was that that's how we met and so Neil Armstrong's last minute scoop of moon-dust brought to people together here on earth and upturned our understanding of how the moon and the earth itself got here. There's something in there about one small scoop for A.
Mount Everest: Melting glaciers exposing bodies of climbers
"On Mount Everest. The melting glaciers on Everest are now revealing the dead bodies of climbers. And those people had been frozen in ice up there for a long period of time. I wonder if any of the any of them will be able to be thawed and brought back. Thank you bring back one of these climbers from Everest. So the BBC reports that global warming is unlocking the deadly mountains gruesome secrets. Everest has claimed the lives of almost three hundred climbers since the first attempt to conquer the mountain nineteen twenty one. Two thirds of whom are buried in the mountains, ice and snow two-thirds two thirds of those three hundred. Let's see it's three hundred two-thirds. I'm saying that's two hundred people. Okay. I'm thinking on my feet tonight. In nineteen fifty three, sir. Edmund Hillary no relation. Tenzing Norgay became the first climbers to reach Everest's summit. Neither one of them are buried up there. Yet. This article says because of global warming the ice sheets and glaciers are fast melting in the dead bodies that remain buried all. These years are now becoming exposed. This is what a sherpa says that there. The BBC interviewed a government official who had retrieved about ten dead bodies from the mountain in recent years, you said they clearly. He said that clearly more and more of them are
