"eustace" Discussed on Key Battles of American History
"In his cabinet consisted of the Secretary of War named William eustace, the Secretary of State who was James Monroe, a fellow virginian and a kind of a frenemy of Madison, he had been a rival, but also a friend. And the treasury secretary was the brilliant Albert gallatin. Let's talk a little bit about Madison. I want to give a mini bio of Madison. He was born in 1751. He had served in the Virginia militia in 1775. He was a very small man about 5 foot four. The shortest president we've ever had, he was very scholarly, a brilliant intellectual, and he was also very sickly. He had health issues his entire life. He had represented Virginia in the confederation Congress, and then at the constitutional convention where he played a major role. He helped write the federalist papers, and he was a major figure at the constitutional convention. As I already said, he represented Virginia in the first Congress. And he helped Thomas Jefferson found the Republican Party. He had written speeches for Washington before they kind of had a falling out. He was Secretary of State under Jefferson and it was elected president in 1808, taking office in 1809. Let's look at the British side. Britain's head of state was king George the third. Yes, that's same king George that led Britain during the Revolutionary War. He's still around, but he's much older now, and he has, he suffers from mental illness. Because of his mental illness, his son, the prince regent, who would be the future George the fourth was ruling in his stead. The government was led by lord Liverpool, who was the prime minister. He took office on June 8th, 1812. So right before the war starts, he'd replace Spencer perceval, who had been assassinated in May 11th. I think he was the only prime minister of Britain in history to be assassinated. Liverpool was trying to avoid war with the U.S.. Let's talk about the military situation. The British had about 5000 regular soldiers in lower Canada and only 1200 in upper Canada. Donald Hickey says about 8000 total. Sometimes Hickey has different numbers than many of the other scholars that I consulted. So in some ways, you want to say, well, okay, it's 5 against one. But Hickey is the dean of 1812 scholarship. So you have to take him seriously. The U.S. Army had about 6000 soldiers. And again, Hickey says 12,000. But these soldiers regardless of how many they were scattered around the U.S. in 23 locations. It was well supplied with muskets and gunpowder, but it often lacked other supplies. Now, organization, neither the U.S. Army nor the navy had a chief of staff or a centralized command structure. They were led directly by the Secretary of War, William eustace, and William eustace was really not suited for the job. He had only about a dozen clerks to support him. You know, he was a political appointee. He wasn't put in the position because he was an expert on the army or anything. The Americans have you reliance on militia, also created problems as historian Walter Bournemouth writes, quote, regular army officers routinely crossed paths with higher ranking militia officers of dubious military experience and debated whose authority was supreme over whose troops.

"I wouldn't be surprised if the team like New Orleans San Antonio or Indiana gave up the farm to get into that top three. I mean, if I was New Orleans, I'd be doing everything I can to get my hands on chat home, grin. I will say that. What define everything though? Because I do think that it's, I don't want to say king's ransom, but it's probably going to take a lot to get into the top three. This isn't like, hey, here's a player to pick. It would probably be a couple picks. A player, a guy like developmentally who's pretty good. And not just for that pick, it would be matched up with somebody else there. But there's not a really clean thing either that I think goes there with New Orleans. Like, who do you give up? Well, New Orleans has all of it. Well, you switch 8 and three. They have all of the picks from the Anthony Davis deal. They have the picks from the drew holiday deal. I mean, do you like I give up herb Jones pretty easily and herb Jones? Fits the Fred cats. Andre Roberson, Josh eustace all stars that the Oklahoma City Thunder tend to love. Honestly, I love Trey Murphy. I absolutely love trading. I think you give up two picks, Trey Murphy, and number 8, to get into the top three. If I am getting, if I can get Chet home grin, who actualizes every single thing that Zion Williamson does on the court, I do that. For anyone a buddy cop comedy waiting to happen with just like the pure dimensions of Chet and Zion next to each other. That would actually be the best NBA jam team of all time. Okay. I want to take one real quick from Jack Miller. If you had to lay a percentage on it, what are the odds of jabari versus Chad at number one? Mocks all have jabari but bed odds are really close right now. You're the Becca I saw. I'm gonna defer to you to start. But it's shifted. It shifted significantly. Jabari was the heavy favorite. It's come down. I don't know what it is as of this recording. But I bet it's pretty close to the two of them together. Yeah..

"And it's an app that I link in and I said that as my web mentioned target and then the injects that right sidebar and of course this is really sweet. So instead of a comments, if people mention you on hacker news or on Twitter, it looks like some other places as well. They'll go right here. They turn up there. So some of these are actual pure web engines. Most of them come from Twitter, which comes through a bridge here. And that used to pop up in the comments of your sites, right? I mean, I like it as a sidebar here. It's kind of cool. I like it as a sidebar too. I just was like, that's something that we used to rely on a lot. Yeah. There's ways to do it. But the web mentioned model is if I write a post to my site and link to you, I then send it where I've mentioned you to say, I've linked to you and it can appear there. And what we've done with bridge, you bridge you will check Twitter for links to that URL. And when it finds one add it to the page as well. So that's the trick so that you can see that they've all got most common Twitter edits you in there and so on. It's actually a bit more subtle because if people reply to a tweet where I've posted the links to it, it'll come back there as well. So you get fantasies. I recently switched to using Mastodon as my comment system. So it's similar to that except instead of using Twitter, it uses. And Twitter is macedon is marked up with microphone X two. So if you can, if you send a web mention from the Mastodon post, it will show up properly in here, but it doesn't send the minor fault. So yeah, you'd have to call the API to put them in. Yeah. I am such a strong believer in the free and open web. I just feel like whatever we can do to kind of preserve that is great. So let's catch you up on the saga of little old Elon Musk. This should be a ballad. The ballot of Elon Musk sit right back will tell you a tale to tale of a billionaire who wanted to own Twitter. As you know, if you've been paying attention over the first three months of 2022, has been slowly they say paying cash, it sounds like he's actually like Lincoln his thumb and spitting out bills for shares of Twitter got himself all the way up to 9.2 percent delayed mentioning that, by the way, now he's being sued because the SEC requires when you get to 5, I think 5%. 5%. But you have to. You have to report, he got to 5% by March 14th, but didn't file little April 4th. And so there's an investor lawsuit saying, and I think the SEC should probably also do something. I think they're investigating, saying, hey, you essentially kept the price artificially low by not telling everybody you were buying up Twitter. Of course, as soon as he filed an April 4th, Twitter stock price went up 27%. Which proved the point. Prove the point. That better evidence better receipts than that. Yeah. So anyway, he is now a 9.2% shareholder, which at that point gave him, I guess, enough stock that Twitter said, well, we better ought to listen to this guy. Even though he's kind of obviously a troll, offered him a board seat. Now, this is where it gets interesting. And invited him to speak to the staff for an AMA. The AMA has been canceled. And so has Elon's board seat. But we're not clear on what happened. It's exactly why I didn't want him on the board in the first place. He's just a troll who runs around doing his own thing and what rules get in the way. He backs off and this is exactly what we thought would happen. So I mean, I think it could be, I don't know. Do you think agarwal Agrawal said, no, never mind? Do you think Elon said, no, never mind? Or did some lawyers, what I hear? What are you here? Should I hear his lawyers said, you just can't, you can't do these things. You have a fiduciary fiduciary responsibility. And you can't go around telling the public what's going to happen with the company without knowing it or before it's known. He did delete a bunch of tweets over the weekend that were offensive, stupid childish. I think he realized someone probably set him aside and said, look, you can do all this when it's your own companies when you come in and do this to other companies, this is a problem. And then I think also Twitter's lawyers probably were like, y'all, really? Is this really what we want? And I think probably everybody woke up next to each other and was like, oh, yeah, no. This isn't right. It was putting up polls, kind of facetious polls. At one point, he said, should Twitter delete the W and Twitter for its name, which is just perfect for his 9 year old joke. By a fourth grader. It turns out, according to the timeline from The Washington Post, that on Saturday morning, he told Twitter he would not be joining the board. Now, there's another thought I had, because remember when we said, maybe one of the reasons I think eustace said to keep your Friends close, keep your enemies closer. One of the reasons Twitter offered him a board seat is because board members are not allowed to own more than 15%. But also, then they have fidgety. So he would have to have a kind of product about the because you're given non material information and therefore if you say it publicly, you are violating every stopped him in the past. And the SEC has barely slapped his wrists for these things. No, yeah, no, but that's my question. Well, because he has beneficial issue of his own company. So he's not necessarily himself, whereas Twitter could sue him for doing it. Yeah, okay. So the lawyers said Elon, you're going to have to muzzle yourself. He said, I'm not doing that. Also, Elon, you can't buy any more shares past 15%. I still think he's got the money. If he wanted to buy Twitter, just do a hostile takeover, he could buy a 51% stake. I'm sure. Where he is friends could. Well, yeah, I was like, he doesn't have to buy the whole 50. Peter Thiel could buy another 15%. What would be the first thing he would do is invite president Trump, former president Trump back? Probably. Do you think? Yeah. I think that's what the I suspect that's why staff is nervous..
"eustace" Discussed on Aaron Mahnke's Cabinet of Curiosities
"Eustace buckets life was like an action movie. He was a monk, born in France in 1170. He left a study black magic in Spain before traveling back home to join saint samurai Abbey. This was his lot in life as he was the youngest son of a feudal lord badwan basket, but he was meant to join the church while his older sibling would inherit their father's land. But eustace was never well suited to religious work. He often found himself at odds with his fellow monks by pulling pranks and shenanigans in the Abbey. For example, when he and his brothers were supposed to be fasting, he would convince them to eat instead, and it wasn't uncommon for him to pass gas in the cloister and encourage others to do the same. After a short time though, eustace received word that his father had been murdered. Unfulfilled as a monk and hell bent on vengeance, he left the Abbey in 1190 to avenge his father. Eustace met with a man named Renault de dem Martin. The count of Boulogne, seeking justice for his father's murder. You see, he had discovered that a man named Han froi had killed him, and eustace requested a trial by combat. He chose a champion to fight on his behalf against hen froy, but the champion was felled in combat and the accused was released. Eustace was then hired by the count to be his senator, or administrative officer to assist with his financial matters. He served the count for about four years until a figure from his past resurfaced and threw a wrench into his life once again. His father's killer. The alleged murderer began spreading rumors about eustace, which the count was quick to believe. He accused the monk of embezzlement and sent him fleeing into the surrounding forest to hide out and plan his next move. On his own, fueled by revenge and branded an outlaw by the man who had helped him, eustace embraced his new situation. He became a pirate. He recruited others to help him in his plot against the count as well. However, the harmless jokes and tricks he was known for, now took on a much darker and in some cases more sinister tone. For one, he committed arson by setting two of account's mills on fire. He also disguised himself as a leper and convinced the count to give him money. The way a person might toss some loose change into the cup of a homeless person on the street today. One time eustace dressed up like a woman and seduced one of the count's knights, offering to spend time with him if he would let the undercover monk climb atop the horse, the night obliged at which point used to sled out a large fart and stole the knight's horse instead. Though many of the stories of eustace's exploits ended in theft or destruction with only minor injuries, there are also tales of a much more grim variety, like when he captured 5 of accounts men at arms and cut the feet off four of them. He let the 5th go free to tell the count about what he had done. Around 1206 eustace traded the forest for the sea and became a true pirate. He sailed the English Channel and the strait of Dover as a mercenary for king John of England for a number of years. John was in the middle of a land dispute over the duchy of Normandy, which was currently under French control. To help his cause the king employed eustace and gave him two dozen galleys to disrupt French trade along the channel. With that much firepower, it wasn't hard for the monk to take over one of the nearby islands as his home base, and orchestrate his attacks from there. He didn't discriminate either. He went after ships from all countries, including English ships belonging to king John. Unfortunately, after 6 or 7 years, his relationship with the king went sour. Surprise, surprise. Eustace and his wife were imprisoned, his daughter, sadly, was even killed. The monks soon found himself on the other side of the fight, working for the French instead. France's king Philip Augustus was only too happy to employ eustace, and pick his brain about how England's forces operated. Philip made him an admiral and had him transporting supplies and soldiers across the English Channel, resulting in several major victories for the French. But all good things must eventually come to an end as they say, and in the case of eustace the monk, that end was particularly violent. In 1217, the French prince was hiding out in London after a crippling defeat against England. He was waiting for eustace to bring him some much needed supplies. When the monks ship was caught by English forces. Eustace was executed. His days of pirating were obviously over, but his story doesn't end there. In fact, it only grew. You see the former monk was of noble birth, hid in the forest with a band of fellow outlaws, stole from the rich, and often used disguises to fool the greedy count's men. While people today may not be familiar with eustace the monk, they most certainly know the character that he would one day help inspire. Robin Hood.

It's gonna be a pretty good hole because the You know the approaches a pretty narrow green so It's a good part three and you've got you got fallouts on both sides of the green Front and back, So it's a good job.

"After nearly half an hour gone by succeeded in making a small hole in the lid inserting my two fingers. I felt some rough uneven masses. I was now fearfully excited tearing at the opening like a madman. I enlarged it and extracted. What looked like a large piece of coal. I knew in an instant what it was. It was magnetic iron ore holding it down to my knife. the blade flew to it. Here's the mystery of the soul. I cried now. We can use it to open the door. I had known a great conjurer wants who had deceived in puzzled. His audience of the box trick on similar lines. The man opening the box from the inside by drawing down the walk with a magnet who this do the same. I felt that our lives hung on the next moment. Taking the mass. I pressed it against the door. Just of the ask and slithered up against the would. My heart leapt as i heard the half fly up outside and with the push the door opened we are saved. I shouted we are saved by a miracle bell. You are a genius gaffes clinton but now how about the stone. At the end of the passage we will soon see about that. I cried taking the lantern. Half the danger is over at any rate and the worst half to we rushed along the passage up the stairs until we reached the top white clinton. I cried holding up the ladder. The place was not shot at all nor was it in his terror. He had imagined it. I could not see in the dark. And i was nearly dead with fright. He said oh bell. Let us get out of this as quickly as we can we crush through the aperture and once more stood in the chapel and then pushed the stone back into place. Dawn was just breaking one. We escaped from the chapel to cross the house in the hall. The clock pointed to five. Well we have had an awful time. I said as we stood in the hall together but at least clinton the end was worth the ghastly terror. I have knocked the bottom out of your family legend forever. I don't even now quite understand. He said don't you but it is so easy that the coffin never contained a body at all but was filled as you perceive with fragments of magnetic iron or for what diabolical purposes. The cell was intended. It is of course impossible to say but that it must have been meant. That's a human trap. There is little doubt the inventor certainly exercise no small ingenuity when he devised his diabolical plot for was obvious that the door which was made of iron would swing towards the coffin wherever it happened to be placed. Thus the door would shut if the coffin. Were inside the cell and would remain open if the coffin were brought out a cleverer method for simulating a spiritual. It would be hard to find. Of course the mon- must have known well that the magnetic iron or never loses its quality and would ensure the deception remaining potent for ages. But how did.

It had been faint hope and it disappeared almost as quickly as it had come to me without a no one would ever find the way to the vault that had remained a secret for ages. I was determined however not the die without a struggle for freedom. Taking the lantern. I examined every nook and cranny of the cell or some other exit. It was a fruitless search. No sign of any way out. Could i find and we had absolutely no means to unfathomable door from the inner side. Taking a few short steps. I flung myself again and again at the heavy door it never budged and in in bruised and sweating it every poor. I sat down on the coffin and tried to collect all my faculties. Clinton was silent and seemed utterly stunned. He sat still gazing with a vacant stare at the door. The time dragged heavily. And there was nothing to do but to wait for a horrible death from starvation. It was more than likely to the clinton would go mad already. His nurse were strained to the utmost altogether. I had never found myself in a worse plight. It seemed like an eternity that we set their neither of us. Speaking a word over and over again. I repeated to myself. The words of the terrible curse and who so enter a thin to the cell shall be the prisoner of the soul that guarded the door till it shall let him go. Winwood the shapeless form that was inside the coffin. Let us go doubtless win. Our bones were dry. I looked at my watch. It was half past eleven o'clock shirley we had been more than ten minutes in this awful place. We have left the house at eleven. And i knew that must've been many hours ago. I glanced at the second hand. The watch had stopped. What time is it clinton. I asked my watch has stopped. Does it matter he murmured what is time to us now. The sooner we die the better. He pulled out his watch as he spoke and held it to the lantern. Twenty five minutes past eleven he murmured dreamily. Good heavens i cried starting up. Has your watch stopped to then like the leap of a lightning flash. An idea struck me. i got it. I've got eight my god. I believe i've got it. I cried seizing him by the arm.

"I went out and flinging back the door which clinton had been holding open stood aside to watch slowly very slowly as we both stood in the passage slowly as if pushed by some invisible hand the door commenced to swing round and with increasing velocity. Shut with a noisy clanging. Seizing it once again. I dragged it open and while clinton held it in that position made a careful examination up to the president. I saw nothing to be much alarmed about. There were fifty ways in which door might shut of. Its own accord. There might be a hidden. Spring or tilted hinges draft of course was out of the question. I looked at the hinges. They were iron and set in solid masonry. Nor could i discover any spring or hidden contrivance. As when the door was wide open there was an interval of several inches between it and the wall. We tried it again and again with the same result and it last as it was closing. I seized it to prevent it. I now very odd sensation. I certainly felt as if i were resisting. An unseen person who was pressing hard against the door at the other side directly it was released continued. Its course i allow. I was quite unable to understand the mystery. Suddenly in idea struck me. What does the legend say. I asked turning to clinton that the soul is to guard the door to close it upon the coffin. Those are the words answered allen speaking with some difficulty now. if that's true. I continued and we take the coffin out. The spirit won't shut the door. If it does shut it disproves the whole thing at once and shows it to be merely a clever mechanical contrivance. Come clinton helped me get the coffin out. I dare not bill. He whispered horsely. I dare and go inside. Nonsense man. I said feeling now a little annoyed at the whole thing here. Put the land down and hold the door back. I stepped in and getting behind the coffin. Who out all my strength in shoved it into the passage. Now then i cried. I'll bet you fifty pounds to five. The door will shut just the same. I drag the coughing clear of the door and told him to let go clinton had scarcely done so before stepping back key clutched my arm. Look he whispered. Do you see that it will not now. My father is waiting for the coffin to be back. This is awful. I gazed at the door in horror. It was perfectly true. A remained wide open and quite still. I sprang forward seized it and now endeavoured to close it it was as if someone was trying to hold it open it required considerable force to stir it and it was only with difficulty. I could move it at all. At last i managed to shut it. But the moment i let go it swung back open of its own accord and struck against the wall where it remained just as before in the dead silence followed. I could hear clinton breathing quickly behind me. And i knew he was holding himself for all he was worth at that moment. There suddenly came over me a sensation which i had once experienced before and which i was twice destined to experience again. It is impossible to describe. It seized me laying siege to my brain till i felt like a child in its power. It was as if i were slowly drowning in the great potion of silence. That enveloped us. Time itself seemed to have disappeared at my feet way. The misshapen thing and the lantern behind it cast a fantastic shadow of its distorted outline on the cell wall. Before me speak say something i cried to clinton the sharp sound of my voice broke the spell. I felt myself again in at the trick my nerves had played on me..

"Ago in particular i was much attracted by the terrible curse which the old habit in the fourteenth century had bestowed upon the family. I read the awful words again. And again i knew that all the other details and the volume had been verified but that the vault with the coffin had never yet been found presently. I grew drowsy. And i suppose i must have fallen asleep in my sleep. I had a dream. I thought that someone came into the room touched me on the shoulder and said come. I looked up a tall figure beckoned to me. The voice and the figure belonged to my late father in my dream. I rose immediately. Although i did not know why i went or where i was going the figure went on in front of me. It entered the hall. I took one of the candles from the table and the key in the chapel unbolted the door and run out still. The voice kept saying come. Come and the figure of my father walked in front of me i went across the quadrangle. Unlock the chapel door and entered a death like sentences was around me. I crossed the nave to the north. I'll the figure still went in front of me. It entered the great hugh which is said to be haunted and walk straight up to the effigy of the old abbot who had pronounced the curse. This as you know is built into the opposite wall. Bending forward the figure pressed the eyes of the old monk in immediately a stone started out of its place revealing a staircase behind.
