It took about a year for the funding to get arranged but when it was the terms of the competition were changed. Eiffel was guaranteed to win the assignment. He of course did win.

He was given one point five million francs which was about a quarter of the estimated cost of the tower. His contract gave him the rights to all revenue from the tower for twenty years and more on the twenty year timeframe and a bit. There was a huge outcry amongst artists and architects in paris.

"Turns out, you know, it's almost a million Eiffel Towers boiled down into a teaspoon, like I mean, it's ridiculous. Like you couldn't hold up a single Eiffel Tower. I mean, I know you've been working out and you're pretty strong and everything, but I felt our ways a lot. Now we take a million Eiffel Towers and then convinced them down into a tiny teaspoon. It's hard to even Imagine what that kind of matter is like, Well, you know, I am stronger in France eyes that because the Earth is not round. There's a difference in like different from their distance from the center of the Earth. It's probably just the French wines out there. You feel stronger and friends. Exactly. But I think I see what you're saying. Is that like a neutron star, it is really just a star that went out right. That collapse? Yeah, exactly finished burning. And so you're saying that like our son would be that dense except that since it's exploding, it kind of keeps everything fluffy. But if you were to suddenly turned it off, all that stuff would scrunch down into something like into drum starts, right? Yes, it's a take The bomb analogy. You know, a nuclear bomb when it's exploded, is not actually that dense. It's a huge fireball, right. But the fireball itself is not that dense. It's much more dense before it explodes. Everyone has all that fuel compacted into a small place. After it explodes, It's much less dense. So an exploding bomb is less dense than a non exploding bomb. Right. It's kind of like cotton candy. You know how con candy is big and fluffy. But if you like Sprinted down Then you just get one really dense piece of candy. Yeah, you're making the sun sound really comfortable and cozy. It's like big and fluffy like cotton candy. You know every Yeah. Thank pink. What is in the air over your house that you think the sun is pink? Well, you know, that depends on your view Ring. Rose colored glasses. You know, I'll give it to you. That's your cartoonist license. You know, that's your heart. Yeah, Exactly. So a neutron star is actually one of the densest things in the universe. It's unbelievably dense. You know, I think isn't even denser than Thor's Hammer. You're the Marvel Universe guy. I think it is. It is made from the heart of a dying nutrient star. So I don't if it's heavier, but it sounds like it's maybe in the same order of magnitude also, then do the calculation. You know, if a teaspoon of neutron star is a million Eiffel Towers, then Thor's hammer is what I don't know 100 teaspoons 1000 teaspoons You know you're talking a billion Eiffel Tower. So every time Thor picks up that hammer, he's lifting a billion Eiffel Tower. It's a college park. Wait. We're doing the physics of comic books here today, folks. Yeah, but you know, not only do you have to be strong, but you have to be worthy right to pick up Thor's Hammer s O. So that's pretty dense TV scoop up some nutrients star in a teaspoon, you would be picking up a million Eiffel Towers. Yes. So make sure you do your stretches before you try that, or you're gonna hurt yourself. Make sure you use a strong spoons spoon made out of osmium or spoon made out of a billion Eiffel Tower at a man team that's right or Vibranium. You sort of give it away. You said a.

Springtails: Nothing to be afraid of

"The first thing to say about spring tells is that probably not something. The yoga sports on the lease of your plants. They like moist places. And that means you most want you to see them on the surface of your soil particularly if you've just watered or perhaps if you lift up apart and look underneath inside a cashpoint possibly you will see lots of little creatures roaming about. They're about the size of a full stop and there are hundreds if not thousands of species. I think there's about two hundred and fifty different species of spring tail here in the uk so as well as into the in your house plant pots. You might also find them outside. You'll compost heap or in part of dump leaves on the characteristic that gives them their name is their ability to spring. But don't get them confused with fleas. They are different creatures. And do not have the capacity to blunt. You or your pets or indeed. You'll houseplants these are really agent creatures. Apparently there are fossil's of spring tales. Going back to four hundred million years ago the know insects they are heck supports which means they've got six legs. I've said that detroit officials while that means they feed on any kind of decaying matter in the soil. They also feed on fungi and algae and that sort of thing so they serve a wonderful purpose in breaking down organic matter. The thing that makes the spring tale jump is called for keeler earned it is of wishbone shaped appendage kind of detail that sits underneath the spring tales belly and when it's surprised for example by you lifting up the port where. It's been hiding this little spring flicks up and propels the spring tail into the air. And apparently this leap is the equivalent of me jumping over. The eiffel tower says pretty impressive. I'll link in the show notes to a wonderful video. Featuring sir david at bra or should i say our lord. God david attenborough talking about spring tales. The column bola class as they unknown and showing how they actually go about springing. It's really amazing to watch. They also have an amazing cheap on the head which they use to moisture is their body basically they have to stay moist in order to survive and most patches of ground on all seven continents of the world will contain about one hundred thousand spring tales per square meter wells' so they are everywhere and there isn't really any great reason for concern if you see and the old spring tail in your soil or under your parts. Because they're gonna go somewhere moist. They are breaking down organic matter. It may be a sign that you're a little bit to dump if maybe you're seeing spring tales in the soil of say cacti and succulents but if you seeing them in the soil of the plants in you've just watered or you're lifting up a part there some there it's really not something to worry yourself about. Just take a look at those tells on wonder at how amazing they are. The other thing to note is that they do mainly wonder about that. Jump everywhere so if you see some small creatures about the size of a full stopped moving around not necessarily jumping the could very well still be spring tails but if you disturb them you may find that one or two will jump and the color very say anything from very dark gray to white to brown. But as i say. The main indication is their location if they are in that soil and they're not doing anything with these. If your plot unusually the location of the creature gives you a really good indication of what it is if it's white and fluffy and in the crevices of your succulent than it's probably a mealy bug if it's a white and fluffy and it's in the roots of your plant while check it carefully. Because it could be micro rizal. Fungi strands but it could also be mealy bugs again. Your hand lenses really useful here. If it's something on the back of your leaves are white grainy stuff. That's probably the shed skins of your spider mites. If you've got really good vision or use a hand lens you should be able to see the brown crab like spider mites wandering around aphids. Well they usually tackle the new soft growth on plants often find them on. Flower stems or on new growth of leaves and thrifts well. They don't look that much different than spring tails but they are bigger and generally you'll find them wondering about your plant leaves as opposed to on the soil and if he wants to get a closer look at the spring tales in your life. Then dave wilson has written an excellent book called the garden jungle or gardening to save the planet which i highly recommend has a good technique to suggest for gathering some up. Dave suggests that you get some compost or leaf mold or indeed the material that's in your plant pots and put it into a funnel under warm lamp sick that funnel on top of some kind of container and the spring tails will head away from the heat and into the container and then you can take a closer look at them a fun activity if you have kids or grandkids to entertain this festive season

"Into your fixed expenses that you are going to have the rest of your life that we do need to inflate over a period of time. Inflation is real. Don't let anybody kid you it exists. But there's also that social component and the older we get, you know, the less desire. We have to go see the Eiffel Tower. Okay, Here's the question that came in through talkto effigy. Mm. My wife and I both planned to retire January 31st of 2025. She'll be 65 in four months. I'll be 65 in two months. That means will be retiring 18 and 20 months respectively. Before our full retirement age. He's talking about Social Security in that when the full retirement age like a lot of retirees, one of our biggest concerns is drawing down our accounts in the most effective tax strategy possible. How can you help in this area? So that's where we look at the hole for you know, Social Security is what I would call a silo. We understand that in central Indiana, and I know you're listening all over the country, But when When we look at this in Indiana, we know what you don't put the beans with the corn would keep them separate in silos and big containers that you see in the movies. They're real. They were all over around around us. These are real things. People tend to make this decisions in silos and again when I talk about that transference of confidence what you want to hear is what you want to believe to be true. So it's odd to me that people will say Well, I'm going to take so security early because I may die right and I want to get all of the benefit and then they will wait to take money out of their IRA until they're 70.5 because they don't want to touch any of the money. Really. It's the fear of running out of income if you will of the taxation. So what we do is help you look at the entire operation all of your assets that you have, where your current tax rate is where your future tax rate will be. And then we deal with the inevitable consequence that we all exit, and that means at some point in time. One of your spouse's is going to pass away and your marginal tax rate gets expanded in the deduction in Mount gets compressed, But the tax rate that you may be in a marginal rate, actually, Congar Oh up just because you lost a loved one. So we walk through that entire analysis with you to make sure they were able to see it and understand it. Can't get another question. I'm taking my retirement at 60 to my husband, who had higher wages is delaying his start date. Is this the correct thing to do If you were born before January, 1st of 1954 honor before January 1st of 1954. You can argue that you can do a file on suspension That's really passed for almost everybody now because most people are already there. Kind of a dead a dead strategy. And every now and then we have somebody who calls and even the window to do that, like we used to be able to do that has passed. You can you can talk about doing that, but what you'll hear people say. Is if if your husband delays what the common The common statement is when your husband passes away, you get to choose the hire of the two benefits. What people fail to tell you is that you have to formulate when you took yours early, so there's still a reduction. It's in that it's not a dollar for dollar transfer. And it all really depends on your asset base in terms of where you are. When you look at the amount of tax deferred assets, he have the amount of income that you need delaying. It may make sense and if you're both retired, and he's simply delaying it. It may make sense, especially if you have a life expectancy problem. Our life expectancy issue I should say, or threat that it's really, really hard with any amount of data you can give us without looking at that whole operation to say, Yeah, that's a good call or not. Keep in mind was so security if you just started it this year. You have 12 months to say at changed my mind and be able to put the money back and every now and then we look at somebody and make that recommendation and you know, we put it back in and it's like so security said not never happened. Nothing to see here. Good question. And thank you. Should you ever postpone retiring concerning the market like if you're in a bear market, What you need to do is to be able to have operational income to be able to Maintain that standard of living. If you're going to retire early, I would. I would not tell you to delay retirement just because you're in a bear market. If you have access to other funds, which could be reverse mortgages could be lines of credit that you have on a house. Other assets that you can use. We had a lot of people who not that we took care of it that we visited with in 2000 and 2009, who delayed their retirement when it was all over and said and done. They really didn't need to, and that's what we tried to explain, then. You should not allow market volatility to really get in the way now the distribution part of that is different Member in distribution. Your goal is the tax rate you pay on the average dollar. In the amount of volatility between distribution points, and that's easily proven when you were able to look at some of the modeling that we're able to do. Hey, giving India call at 809 284001 gets signed up for your next steps meeting. We will give you things to consider today. Things you're gonna want to consider in the future.

See Trap underscore travel. On Twitter C trap underscore travel always left to hear from you what your thoughts are, but anyway so we basically book that hotel and it was like four dollars four euros in. Taxes that we have to pay while we were, there so super cheap, and then we took an uber, so you can call Uber's in. Paris you can in many many other countries and in the United States. and. We typed in Eiffel Tower I. Believe and they took us somewhere and it was nowhere near the Eiffel Tower. So that's something to keep in mind. Make sure you pick the right location. Uber I. Don't know how we could get that raw. Honestly, but we did. That's not what we want to Eiffel, tower and I'm. Right here I'm standing and I'm lifting my arms up like showing a tower, so I tried to explain it to him, and so he took us there. The problem with that is when you take rubers. You have to make sure that you are going to tip them well when that happens, because now you off route now it looks like It's longer than it should have those kind of things, so make sure you either. Stop! Or you tip them really really well. Depending on how far out of the route you go, not sure exactly how that works, but it just somethin'. Something to keep in mind. I would not recommend to stop the route. And then started new route because you might not get that driver quite frankly. But something to keep in mind that you make sure you have the right location in, so you finally took us to the Eiffel Tower. Like most tourist sightseeing locations, it's always interesting to see. How would live up to your image that you have and I have to say it was nice. It was fun. But it was maybe I was. Okay. You know the whole experience I would probably say was underwhelming. Honestly, you know there's you try to walk in people trying to sell you stuff matched up.

From The City To The Megalopolis

"It's amazing to think that. In the nineteenth century about three percent of humanity lived in cities and today. That number is fifty percent, and it's growing rapidly. We live in the age of the Megalopolis. We're going to talk about that now with Dr, Salvatori satis Dr set. This is an emeritus professor of the history of classical art and archaeology at the school normality superiore in Pisa in Italy. He's an archaeologist and art historian. He's the chairman of the Louvre Museum. Scientific Council his the author of several books on art. Art History and he's known as the conscience of Italy for his role in spot, leading the neglect of it all national cultural heritage. His book is if Venice dies, and it's a look, not only at in the struggles, Venison the twenty first century, but at the increasing urbanisation of civilization general doctor says thanks for joining us. Thank you for inviting me. Can you talk about if finished is? How much of it is about Venice? And how much of it is it about the changing urban landscape across the planet? Well my intention in writing. This book was to focus on Venice. In order to make people meditate about what's going on on on a global scale about what I would call the shape the form of the city Savannah's. Sample account that example, contrasting some of the most disturbing. Of Urbanization in our current world end, it is quite dramatic. What's going on in your book? You explain there are fifteen megalopolis. That have over twenty million people is the advent of these massive cities twenty million people cities people have to live somewhere is is that a good thing or a bad thing? Why does it concern you well? I'm concerned about the quality of life. Those people because although this organization may look something that happens naturally, it is also prompted by economic forces. It is a concentration of workforce. which is not necessarily living in good conditions in order to create profit for a very low number of people, so it's the usual formula ninety nine percent, the best one percent, the megalopolis is a consequence of a complication of the world, the general commodification of the world that includes to an increasing extent human beings. This is just a very efficient thing for the elites to have a concentration of workforce where people who will be able to work cheaper and produce more by being right there at the center of production. Is that what? What you're saying, produce more and also by more become consumers, because workers are simultaneously consumer, so there is a a bishop's or two, if you so wish seal between being workers and consumers and I, think that there are two your which are combined, and normally one is made. Opera is the big over-centralisation to the other one is the verticalisation of AF- architecture. May Boca Use a? It's an example Chung Ching in China which had the six hundred thousand people in the nineteen thirty s and now thirty four million people living in it. I talked to contrast this with a different. Format Orbis or shape of the city. A form of the city in which that is some sort of harmony of balance between the body of the citizen and the body of the city where the citizen doesn't feel The one thing I'm saying is that it is good that we presser diversity in urban form and preserving diversity means among other things saving and saving the other historical see also because there is in even more. More disturbing feature of urban farming cities taking shape in in our time, and that is the fact that wide ancient cities. Historical CDs had a boundary around the city in the case of Venice Lagoon, case of other cities, the walls around the city now the boundaries around the boundaries of the city are being gradually substituted by boundaries within the city which has boundaries between the gentrified areas. For. The Hey and the have nots. You can see that in Paris very well. This can impact is. Also in Rome or in Milan dimension, Italian cities, the gated communities are increasingly frequent all around the world, but the gated communities are for those who are wealthy or relatively wealthy, while the other people are condemned to live in favelas. Zeal or in in be don't be like this aim French. I'm just thinking of Paris. I was just in Paris with a group. And I was explaining how they protect the center of Paris where everything is the months heart, scale you know six or eight story tall monster building, so you can see the domes, and you can see the spires, and you can see the Eiffel Tower and then right when you get to the periphery. Periphery this big boulevard that circles the city outside of that. It's just no-holds-barred, and it's like keeping the Cadillac Bay outside of that periphery. It's forced of skyscrapers within that you've got the elegance of the classic people friendly city that is in a sense, a gated community, because it's unaffordable for lot of people, and they end up outside a town in the rougher downtrodden neighborhoods. This is what's going on. Your description is absolutely perfect I think. But this involves a separation with inside, which is socially potentially very dangerous for the future. which is not precisely what I would call democracy.

Saint Laurent’s is ditching the traditional Fashion Month Calendar

"Get down system news breaking news this week. I was pretty at. He can aback by the SUNOL announcement. Picking them back in a good way. Ya was although I guess in the last episode we'd been wondering whether big changes were actually going to end up happening so I guess there's your proof that's your answer so for anyone who doesn't know son. A Hall has decided to drop out of Paris fashion week and set its own pace for showing collections direction of the year. And it's going to pivot to adapt to the corona virus crisis and has said they told. Ww W D Saddam will said in a press. Release wd conscious of the current circumstances and it's waves of radical change. Santa has decided to take control of its pace and reshape. Its schedule creates Dr Anthony. Vaccarello said the violent impacted covered nineteen outbreak. Which has forced the closure of most of Santa Stores meant business as usual was not an option chief executive officer Francesca Valentini. Hinted that the brand famed for its spectacular outdoor women's catwalk shows set against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower in Paris could still age a physical show at some point this year. But his favorite formats. They're more intimate and closely aligned. The final customer room. What do you think that means? It's such big news. I think that a house as respected and that does such exceptional job also needed such an exceptional job for its Shows has decided to to step down. Because that's a really really positive meaning that others will feel other smaller. Brands will feel like they can do the same without sounding like their brands in an unhealthy state. Because I feel like a lot of people will be worried about the way to investors and stuff at the same time as So that's also something to take into consideration when you're canceling big show and some of the big names of doing it gives a lot more room for others. I mean the rose also says that that's what they're going to be doing next season and I think this is a really positive outcome. I do that like brands. Moving away from the long lamented fares suck in place flashing. Schedules is a good thing. There is part of me. Worries that with brands. Big Sahel if they're off schedule but still in Paris are still gonNA maybe in completely off the mark with this that people are still gonna fly to Paris from other places to see that. But they're saying they're not showing. Well are they saying they're not showing? Yeah they said they're not doing a show could still stage a physical show at some point this year. Yeah at some point means one show instead of like the fashion week schedule. Which basically these three shows. Because that's two women or four shows to women's and men's which is from going from four to one is a big step. It's a big step back totally and I'm totally in agreement with that but I just worry that everything is going to become cruise collection competition e where big brands compete to have a more extravagant location or timing or whatever and then we're all just going to have to be on airplanes all the time in random directions and if that's what's going to happen? I would just rather we stick to the fashion week schedule because at least you just take one flight and then you go to Paris and you see the shows you know. That's the devil's advocate but bear in. Mind that that's if international flights have resumed. Which for the time being. It isn't the case and bronze will not have healthy budget. They used to fly people around on a whim as much as they used to. And I feel that for example a brand like Santa Hall would make sense to host an event of some kind in the form of a show. Something else every year in Paris. Because that's whether the house is located and you do have to find a way to promote and showcase what the designers creating certainly certainly so there is you have to be able to allow for some kind of formats. I think it's positive to see that it's going to be less than than it was and I really liked the idea of rethinking a system. That was so wrong but yeah I agree with you until we see what the outcome is. Exactly we can't really speculate county yet. No I assume you know what it occurs to me that some of our listeners might not beyond the fashion week circuit. I feel like I'd love you to go into a little bed and you're really up -cluded on the stuff as well. What about the fashion calendar is has been so wrong for so many years but especially in recent years? Can you speak to you kind of just touched on it? I think the competition for each brand to do bigger and better viral. Basically shows has become completely out of hand plus the fact that there are an increasing number of brands increasing number of people wanting to attend shows. Because it's good for positioning or like people just want to be seen their raw than the because they're actually you know helping promote the show itself and I also feel that we talked about this before. It's always fashion week somewhere and whereas they used to be only one week for each city it's now becomes so long and there's men's could chew and crews and then all the minor fashion weeks like Copenhagen and button and all the others that I can't think of the top of my head right now but I know there are loads of them. Do we really need a show format in an era which is increasingly digital. And when actually sitting front row to show would only be important if that show. It really is a proper added value to the brand. I think partly because of how exhausting has become for everybody and by everybody. I'm not talking about myself. I'm talking about people who really work super hot during that time. So the bias. The brands you work super hard juryman time. Yeah at the end of the day. I'm just that to report I'm not Like I feel like there's a lot of pressure during those those busy busy busy times and having so many shows back to back over a period of a month then Rick 'cause two three times in Aghia and where every single time you have to travel to a different city and attend just absolutely absurd amount of events and shows parties all in the name of promoting a brown and it just turns into a ridiculous exercise which is actually quite just quite cringe and especially after everything. We've gone through in last in the last few weeks. I think it would be quite distasteful to return to

Gas Station Could Get Shut Down After a Dude Filmed Porn in the Snack Aisle

"I see what you're up to their Milwaukee and I gotta say it seems like a bad idea Milwaukee city government. There is trying to shut down a gas station. Thirty fifth hometown is the name of the gas station. Because someone without the permission of the gas stations owner filmed a down and dirty. Gonzo porn in the aisles of the convenience store chunk of the gas station at three o'clock in the morning and amateur porn actor in Frederick Allen. Enter the store in the middle of the night with a female companion Jelicic Astro del. She's reporter advice. Not The female companion reporter advice to be perfectly clear JELICIC caster. Del says that Allen who's wearing a bathrobe dances around in the video. Strokes himself for the Cameron. And then shrugs off his bathrobe gets on his knees and bones the woman from behind looking over his shoulder into the camera quote with an expression that says. Can you believe I'm doing this? Beside the starburst. The video posted to porn. How has been viewed more than seven hundred thousand times and a couple of dozen people with nothing better to do after enjoying that? Video signed a petition calling for thirty fifth hometown to be closed an elected official an actual elected official with nothing better to do after watching. The video took up their cause. And what Milwaukee District Seven Aldermen? Khalif raining told Fox. Six now news had convinced that this was a comedy piece of the onion at first. But no it's real Alderman Rainey. Who's leading the push to put? The Guy who owns thirty fifth hometown out of business actually said this into a microphone under my watch. I won't allow it keep in mind. It was filmed right next to the chips and across from the sunflower seeds. Ono those poor chips and won't someone please think of the sunflower seeds. I WanNa make it clear that I do not rise now. In defense of Frederick Allen Amateur Porn Star he's a convicted Felon Castro reports advice. Who's been with second degree sexual assault of a child? After a woman told him her fifteen year old daughter appeared in two of his videos. Those charges were dropped after a witness refused to testify. So Yeah Allen doesn't sound like a good dude but you know what I found in less than five minutes of searching on porn hub. Amateur porn videos shot on buses and subways guns. Oh porn video shot in big box stores. In airports and beam parks airplanes in airbnb fees amateur porn shot at world famous tourist sites. I didn't find anyone getting Eiffel Tower at the Eiffel Tower but I did find the Eiffel Tower and amateur porn. Shot and so many hotel rooms recognizable hotel chains and in one case a porn shot in my favorite hotel in the world. Quick shout out to the Maritime Hotel. My home away from home in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood. There's also some gay porn out there that was shot or so. It's makers claim in the Vatican basically wherever people go with their genitals on their smartphones. And there's really no where people don't go with their genitals and they're smart bones. Someone at some point has made a porno there and uploaded it to the Internet so shutting down places where someone shot a little Gonzo porn. Yeah let's just say that seems like the slippery of slopes to me a pretty luby's slope in fact because of the whole world goes the way of Milwaukee. If officials started closing down businesses where people made porn videos without the permission of the owners to say nothing of. Shutting Down Airlines and hotel chains and world religions. Pretty soon. There won't be anywhere for people to get gas or get a bed or get religion personally. Konso porn shot in gas stations. On I WANNA see that interested but you know what I would like to see what I am personally interested in seeing Milwaukee district seven Aldermen Khalif Rainey's Internet browser history. In fact I'd like to see the Internet browser histories of every member of the Milwaukee Common Council who voted to revoke the business license of Kalat Dallin the owner of the thirty fifth hometown gas station. Because I'd like to know where the porn they've been watching was shot. City officials three Alderman justified. Their decision to strip dylan of his business license because he was in the store when it happened and didn't call the police which leads me to believe that. No one on the Milwaukee. Common Council has ever worked in a gas station or as following the news very closely customers who all sorts of weird shit and gas stations and the goal of everyone behind the counter on the graveyard shift is just to get through that shift alive confronting dancing man in a bathrobe in the middle of the night. When there's no one else in the store why why would you do that? Could get you killed an L. In the dancing man in the bathroom in the store in the middle of the night is a black man. And if you've been following the news well it's possible Dylan worried that calling. The police could get allen killed. It would certainly cross my mind anyway. According to the testimony taken at the hearing where the licensed committee voted to strip dylan of his business license effectively shutting him down Dylan has run thirty fifth hometown for twenty years without incident and has a forty year quote positive track record as a small business owner in Milwaukee and he's cooperated with the police in the past and on this case to prosecutors credit him for the successful prosecution of Frederick Allen and they voted to close the business anyway after Alderman. Rainy said the two magic words sex trafficking. No one knows that the woman in the video was trafficked but she might have been for all anyone knows according to Rainey so they voted to shut thirty fifth hometown down lawsuit. Thirty hometown remains open while the decision is under appeal but there is one detail from the testimony that leaped out of me testimony taken before the licenses committee that seems to have been overlooked by the licenses committee. By the Milwaukee Common Council quote the man involved in the sex act better gallon amateur porn star has a history of doing this all over the city. So looks like we're going to have to shot all of Milwaukee

Our don't change anything so many people don't want us to changes don't make the nucle-. The stories is interesting. I feel story tailing having those stories that passionate interaction that the stories are of the platforms can bring you know, there's a great opportunity to actually not just share some stories by watching. It is to be physically powerful the community events that were doing the full two walks the knee tops, not just the weird doing. But no, you know, we wanna make sure that everyone knows empowered to just go do it create your own events, create your own groups have those Nita. So hopefully for me the stories are actually in real life. You know, the real life events as far as having physical story part of of the the online platform, not something I'm aware over the moment. But I'm sure maybe smarter people near having those discussions. At their office man's good.

I could do the worst model of f anything of my house out of a bit of. Cardboard and then would say, hey, they would say that goes in the Ben. But if you go to a model village, what you what you were amazed at is the detail the amount of care someone who's taken to get everything. Exactly. Right. Well, I wanted to move onto model villages. Basically, we creating on the grounds that feeling of look at it Paris for that, you know, the top of the Eiffel tower and. I visited gold sale and various bottle villages when I was a child. I went after reading chapter I went online to try and look at how many of these were still in business around the country. And you know, there's a there's a few how particularly about back in skull, again, just a little blocks. The pale of the place the peel is infinite and timeless six tool we things. So I mean, God sale is is is now for having a model village within silent with the inside his model village, which is sort of a wonderful concept. Beck and Scott is coming up to its ninetieth anniversary next year the dates are little bit hazy. But that's the one that claiming so one thousand nine hundred twenty nine and it began we think no one knows exactly as a model railway inside the house and the the wife of the of the guy live in Canada who Bill. It go frustration taking a whole houses easings tend to do and said it's either meal away. And so the railway went outside the garden, and then it expanded. And then obviously, a motorway self is very interesting. What you need is an interesting landscape and expanded from that. Now, it's well for what it's been the size of a football pitch, but it's constantly expanding. So they recently opened whole new little area, which has it will based on the nineteen thirties. Innova loose kind of way. So they had a hanger lane type tube that open there, and they had a town hall that was sort of nineteen thirty ish. But actually more more on flaws are very they don't I said about the exact issued over what they want is the exact dimensions defeat in just about with everything else that that's what they do mind so much is it doesn't have to be exactly nine hundred thirty but walking around there. No less. Entertaining now as an adult as it was to me as a kid, and I took my kids out. And then I was doing the book I took and kids of a neighbor because my kids are grown up now. And they're joy, really because it's such an unusual thing. They have like everyone else, ipads and everything else. And although there quite you know, they do quite a lot of sort of arts related work and craft related work with the hands as well these kids, but it's nothing like they've ever seen. But it made me think that actually are interested in minutes, just really begins as kids and some some of us grow out of it and some of don't so the world is is a Dumi confusing place as an adult and as a kid, but as a kid, you have no control over anything really in your life. I mean, your, you know, your your parents pretty much ruled the roost from what your bedroom looks like to when you go to bed. To what meals you eat. This is when you're young school pretty much the same. So if your six year old the idea of having a LEGO that or a model train or. Not quite popular. They used to be an action man when I was growing up with Bob Dole. We still a huge those kind of things you are in control..

"eiffel tower" Discussed on Little Atoms

"But of course, the miniature railway in Hamburg, which prides itself on being the biggest in the world. It's like ten miles. If you include all is sort of student, so not small the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas with its fully workable gondola vied for the medically of choose sleeps four thousand and all the thing about Vaga says I was a trend to create the world in hotel signs. So it would be New York, New York, and the Venetian, and then Paris and Paris have a half size towns. And then I'd say, but everything in the book will be miniature scale compared to the thing. It's a miniature of and then I say well things may also perform a millage UT. So they may explain the concept with over puzzle. Job memory, a souvenir of a building on a. Tearing though interesting fits the Bill as does a miniature bottle of gin, Volkswagen beetles is note because it was a vigil Bill small it wasn't smaller than else, and no doesn't ever small thimble. No matter how kina those who act them mini bars and lapdogs of borderline as the autobahn cycle today. Shen a toy poodle made of plastic in a classroom Tableau made by five year olds of no interest to anyone. I wanna start off with as you doing the book with the Eiffel tower, and of course, the gases onto the beginning of the idea of the of the souvenir small obviously scale versions of the Eiffel tower tower itself, conversely, does a similar thing to what we're talking about miniatures the relationship managers have to their larger objects in simile people are able to goes up people have obviously never been in an airplane at this time right to go tower. Suddenly, see. Paris see the world in a completely new way. Exactly, why begin the with the Eiffel tower which at the time when opened eighteen eighty nine with the biggest building in the world and now dwarfed by hundreds of course. But then it was extraordinarily you say you need great coverage to go up even to the first platform. They wanna done this before the tallest. The tool building in Paris will the view the highest view with the Notre Dame cathedral. And then this thing suddenly goes up hundreds of feet, and you go up, and he say, the other you see miniature Paris laid out in front of you for the first time they wanted ever seen this. So you can see the houseman of. You can see your house may be relation to than it was hospital. It is on foot. You've got an idea. But how far is when you looking at it vertically? It's a different thing. And you get a sense of two things you get a sense of enormous omnipotence, you are taller than anything on the ground. You are giant seeing the whole of your CAT for the first time. But you also get a feeling of what actually this is a big modernist building. And it's the future and how small we are really up in the avenue relation to the world around us. And then as you say you come down for the first time pretty much, you can buy mass-produced factory souvenirs of the Eiffel tower, you can get them as little metal objects to put on mantelpiece or you can you can get the image in any form of clothing scarf or handkerchief for that kind of stuff. If you get it as a wing. Silver wing fulltime shape. So that Olivia stashes the idea of ownership and capturing something and the idea of saying I was there. And then that in time we'll be joined by other things on the mantelpiece. And of course, those souvenirs say ubiquitous world now, obviously photography going to visit a place taking. I think it's difficult to think we're remove that's tiny little cast iron model of the Eiffel tower. No way replicate use it reality the experience of visiting the thick and yet it's suit of the more accurate..
