The Last Time Gus Cried? - #510
You're listening to rooster teeth. Podcast number five, hundred, ten. If you hear something you would like to see from this episode, visit rooster teeth dot com. Hello, everyone walk into the risk podcast. This week brought to you by hymns and squarespace. There's that one. There's the other one. I'm Gus. I'm Chris, I'm Becca. I'm Barbara Bernie. They didn't do the thing. They were going to be me and then we're going to be used in. I know, I guess. And then Bernie. Last one. Would be like, oh, there's none of the podcast today, but I thought I would hang out on the side for something I forgot to mention on the podcast last week because they won't have anything right out of the gate 'cause I don't want to derail. Do so go, no, you go for you guys. All this article about the former Cosby show actor who was shamed for having a job. Do you know this? Wasn't he like a trader Joe's copy. He was bagging, groceries, I believe at trader Joe's I think that's what it was and a bunch of media outlets in the first. You know the first cycle of this little news thing. They they all reported like, oh my gosh. Can you believe actor? Where's he now back on hard times or whatever. And it was just like, but the immediate reaction from the public on my social media was like, the fuck is wrong. You guys a job. Yeah. Also like don't act like, isn't it a false? It idea that actors get paid these ridiculous amounts of money. Like if you're just on some show years and years ago, and billionaire was under Cosby show, which is obviously no longer on the air. So I think those funds dried up. They're gonna that's indication money that's coming back probably not. No, that one's probably not coming back. I just feel like it's an over exaggerated idea that every single person in show business and TV is, you know, multimillionaires it's inconsistent org. Gently worked to get the next job. Yeah, what's going to take a increase in technology, but I think the Cosby library, the Cosby show. We're at quantum computing on such an enormous value to it because they're, they produce it for a number of years. You could reboot it and just digitally replaced Bill Cosby without. Bing crosby. Make it the Crosby show one letter. Right? Will love that one. Yeah, it's totally the same show because what was it? Do you remember? Years ago, I can't remember what it was was Elvis or remember they use dead celebrity. They use their image inserted into a modern commercial. It was a coke commercial. I was in the rain. Yeah, they did with Audrey Hepburn too. I think. But I think the first one is when you're talking about it was Jim Kelly? Yeah. Thank you Fred, Astaire. I'm sorry. I was gonna say, Gene Hackman. Who's going to be way the fuck was. I think it was Fred Astaire time that they. The rain. Remember what, what a hub that was? It seems like now. Like that thing seems more commonplace. I think that set the precedent for you have to pay these estates for figuring out what the rights are and who gets paid in order to sign off on stuff. That's super creepy when I'm dead, what am I going to go on people putting me in commercials and stuff like that. That seems weird crazy too, because what was coke? So that was around when he was alive, but theoretically you could die and you could then be used as an endorsement for something that didn't exist while you were alive? Yeah, that's strange. Now they use my likeness to endorse something after I'm dead, they better just use my animated corpse. The hiccup strings? Yeah, Bernie style. They don't need you that. I'm pretty sure at some point in the very near future, we're gonna see entirely digital stars. We're going to the maximum already through get him on one hundred percent digital that the dude in a prosthetic was there's an injury. Graham account was digital in the show all, oh, that's completely. But she true looked really human. And so she had something like, oh, am I. Sheila Cuban. So she's like, Gus would not not quite getting. She didn't look. I went and I saw two thousand one last week they were playing. They were playing in the theater at the Alamo village. And you mentioned how me think about it. And if you haven't seen that movie in a long time, hell is only half that movie relics only on the back half of that fill. The first half of the film is really slow. I think it's like thirty minutes before the first line of dialogue is spoken and the movie. It's only two and a half hours, but I guess it was really long for the time. So while they were playing at the Alamo, there was an intermission. So like onscreen it says intermission and then the lights come up like, oh, that's where I could save an intermission. And when the lights came up, I realized I was in a row with a family. There was a mother and a father and their three kids. Three kids were all like tweens. They weren't quite teenagers yet, and the light came up and I heard one of the kids lean over to the father and say, this is the most boring movie world. The other kid like another kid leaned over interjected was like, I never. Realized science could be so boring. And so like the mother got up with him and like left with all three kids that just just sitting there waiting for the interest back. They didn't come back. They were gone. Left. They might kids might not only intermission. Like, well, let's go back into theater and finished watching the movie. Like we just finished. The lights went up and they're like, Nope, that's an intermission. When have you ever seen an intermission in anything else? He other movie, I guess like a go into a player something which probably had, yeah, the, hey, that was the special screening. Okay. Intermission in my screening of hateful as you go to the original, this film windy. Who was it? The smash the guitar in that movie. Kurt, Russell, Kurt Russell? Yeah. Yeah. They had a son was playing guitar, and they had guitar from like the eighteen hundreds layer, very rare guitar. There's only a few left in the world, and there's seem that they smash it, but they obviously had a prop so they can play story smashed it. He grabbed the wrong one or during the wrong take grabbed it, smashed it. And so there's an actress in the foreground whose actress in that Jason Lee, Jennifer, Jason, Leigh. Thank you very much, terrible names. You can see her reaction because she knows and her reaction is like a genuine reaction. Tim smashing, the super rare guitar. Holy shit. There was supposed to get up to the point of the smash. I think they're supposed to cut, then they're going to go in and take the stand in guitar, but no one Kurt Russell pay for it. Like how does that Russell do not send them an invoice, get out of here. One hundred forty five year old guitar. Oh my God. That's the one bagging groceries at trader Joe's. Just know that somebody like cared for that for decades. It was on loan from a museum. Movie with the Mona, Lisa and smash the real, Mona. Lisa, even worse. It was a one of a kind guitar. It was one of the kind. It was one of zero still is right. Thousands of one kind. That sucks. Dude, that sucks. Yeah, you know. But it's funny because that that guitar honestly would have existed for probably another couple hundred years in a museum. Nobody would know about it. But the fact that that this actor picked it up and now everybody knows about the guitar. When others a record of it, like you see it in the movie right now, it's just a Planet Hollywood. You can go see it. A Hollywood. I don't know. I feel like they're probably be at least one in Japan or something right. The biggest? Yeah, because you know the most like a sewer. To anybody leaving ever been fiber. Andy, I'll miss you. See you in London. We're back vote podcast retaped on, I think we said that we're not live. Oh, right. We should have sent that where most of us are no only half of us are inland half of us. Us. Birdie saw the pizza. Is it homeplace his home site? You got here on time that that story reminded me. You bring up the Instagram account of the potential fake person. Did you ever hear this theory that Averill Levin died? Oh, yeah. Yeah. There's like a fake person pretending to be ever Levin. Yes. Who's perpetuating that started out as a joke? Right. And I think so, but then it turned into like some crazy conspiracy theory gives her appearance changed dramatically. Yeah, went right. Certain things about our personality and stuff changed as the lime disease. Attic. So every now and then it happened with Paul McCartney with the Beatles people claim that Paul McCartney died and there was a replacement. Paul McCartney. The one that had the if you played revolution. Number nine backwards said, turn me on dead man, and that created this whole mess that. There's also that that photo of Melania Trump coming off where she had a double ganger where it looked like a completely different person like the faces different boat shoes in the same clothes. So people thought like someone else was on the plane like d'appel gang or some type of body double quinoa Madala. Keira Knightley. That was who it was smelling of it with very cliched jaw. Yeah. I don't know why that is that people always want to look for weird conspiracy theory, like even where there is none like who. Why would they hide if something happened to ever Levin? Is there like some person who stands to make a ton of money by ever Levin still being alive, maybe or like maybe ever Levin herself isn't dead, but hired someone to be her what? I don't know. Maybe she just doesn't like, have you ever seen the movie mega mind? No, never saw it. Well, the superhero that movie fakes his own death because he doesn't want to be just wanted to do it anymore. There could be a thing to or it's like if a musician like a famous musician was really popular back in like back in the day or something, but they'd fallen on hard times and and their music wasn't selling anymore. So they faked their own deaths so that their music sales will skyrocket still enjoy the money while they're still alive. Yeah, but they're not faking. They're still live though? Yeah. Yeah, it's the opposite. Okay. And then mine? Yeah, to puncture. That was another one Machiavelli or than the Elvis people refuse to believe Elvis was dead for a long time. Yeah, we saw him in Vegas. He he was there. Totally there. He was in Vegas and Atlantic City and New York at some point all the same time weirdly enough over. Are there any conspiracy theories that you do believe in. I think that the moon is made a cheese and they just won't tell us. This the cheese industry doesn't want the bottom falling out of of their chief who the spokesperson for Jesus adver Levin gonna fit. She's us. Oh, you're gonna say Gus. Are there any you believe in sky sound terrible, but when I was younger and there was this documentary that got released on YouTube called loose change about the nine eleven attacks. There was a brief period of time where I was like, oh my God. Oh, conspiracy theory, I thought loose was awful. We haven't. We haven't. When I watched that, I think I was like thirteen fourteen nothing will not nothing. Few things make me feel as old as whenever September eleventh comes around and I read like post on redder people talking about it like you have your member it. I was in fifth grade. I think about fucker. I was twenty three. I was. I was at my, I was working. I was at my job. I was in high school, freshman in high school, and I remember my friend came up to me. It was like, did you hear someone blew up the government? It's like, that's what that's what how they described it, like someone blew up the government young, it's hard to really what happened. It was just like something had happened. I was in the seventh grade and I remember they called late victims. You doing the thing I said out there talking about how you only work? Yeah, I was in the seventh grade. I remember that called the sixth, seventh and eighth graders into the gymnasium to like, tell them all what happened. Because like I guess we were the older kids at the school, so they felt like we could handle it if you want. Parents pick you up and I was confused. I was like, okay, and you're Canadian? Yeah. But also I went to a private Jewish school. So I think there's a little bit of kind of worry that we might be a target for something just because you're a private school, you never know what. People didn't know. And I think the, like I said, it was already an adult. So I felt like I had a different perspective on it. Then. Than kids who at the time. And the thing that always strikes me, the thing that makes me remember the day the most is when if you watch like a clip or you watch the segment from the Howard Stern show when it happened on that day or it's like it's just a normal Howard Stern show that all of a sudden the here, something like, oh, that's weird them. It's like, do we make fun of this wasn't an accident, then they find out more. It's like it becomes more and more serious. It's like, oh shit, no, like something crazy just happened. It's really alive. Yeah. Yeah. It's really interesting to see like, 'cause you think of the stern show, do you think of one thing and it's like, and it just totally goes into different direction was never introduced during show same. I was never. I listened to some and especially in the early days of the podcast I listen more because I was always curious as to how someone could produce so much content on a daily basis as like, what is he doing to make his show at how is he do it after? So many years I didn't get those people who who do podcasts or radio shows every single day, like listen to. To ninety three point seven in the morning sometimes which is like Dudley involved and they get up at like four in the morning every day to start the show it probably five thirty or six and they talk for three or four hours and they do every day. Do they play music? No commercial breaks and stuff like that. But. It'd be good for a long time because the morning of September. Eleventh. When my alarm went off, it was a radio alarm. It was ninety three point, seven. It was Dudley involved. When my radio went off, I heard them. They were like peers, small plane, like a Cessna flew into the tower and I turned it off and I was like, that's weird into my head. I thought it was the UT tower and apartment living in at the time I had a balcony where I could see where UT was. So I went up to my balcony and I looked at a campus and towers fine. What the fuck they're talking about. I tried to use the internet, but like all the websites were done. CNN just had like four bullets America under attack. Every website was just overload. I couldn't load it things like, well, that's sucks. My internet's down. Like I didn't find out until I went to work. Wow, that's so weird phone call on my landline. I remember telling me to wake up and turn on the TV show, turned on my nineteen inch CRT like all those memories really dates it to those one does not seem like that long ago, but it's so long ago. So long ago I, I don't know. I think people who were born two thousand are now in college and that to me is so weird. But back to the Howard Stern thing, that's where I, I learned what a city and was was from the Howard Stern. How did you learn about that? Barbara as a very. A curious child. I would often look at clips on the internet that we're not safe for work, and then I probably shouldn't be watching. And that's a found a clip of some porn star using that thing and the movie private parts like, didn't they have. For some reason. I thought I was going to say that's where you learned what Queen was. I watched the Howard Stern show on TV as I kid because it was like sort of like raunchy stuff. It was. Yeah, it was like a lot of like nudity, but it was all censored. But as a kid mean, what was going to fill in the blank and there was a lot of talk about sex and stuff, and I would just, yeah, it was like this. This is like you're allows on TV. Like your allows on TV. But you're allowed to watch it same time. Did y'all ever watch love line on MTV? I watched that too. I was on that when I was, let's see. Yeah, I had a call like I called in one night. I came home. I was a little drunk and I submitted a question on their website and they called me like six months later, and they were like, do you want to be on the show and ask your question? And so what was your question I had read about some device like creates a vacuum on your boobs and actually generates breath tissue. And I just the most like obvious thing that I could think of to ask them to bait them into putting me on the show and it's a call to work. You buy it. I think it's called the Bravo, and it probably doesn't. But yeah, they just they basically told me that it was a fake article or an ad that was disguised as an article. I'd read about it in a magazine. It was not. It was the legit article that they were very dismissive of me. But what I didn't anticipate was how many people in my school watch that show God from a really small town. So when it said Becca, seventeen Crusoe's springs, Texas, they knew exactly I was. So then states, like my geometry teacher called me go, no, he'll do you think you would find that clip? I've tried no Trump. No, I remember it. I had it on for a long time and it disappeared. The tape disappeared. I don't know what happened to it. But Loveland was a nightly show. Shit tend to content out there to the point that I think people don't care to archive it. Yeah. All I found is a listing of the article of the episode name, like guest host date and some database. We have to find that. Yeah. Can't find it. I think it was. It was in the year in the year, two thousand. So today we're, we're pre taping the apple presentation with the new iphones. Just wrapped up a little while ago. They use a word. They repeatedly use a word in their in their press conferences. That drives me crazy. I know. I know uncompromised compromise. Yeah. How can a phone be uncompromising like what does that mean? It's such a garbage word is such a garbage work to describe a piece technology fancy. That's why they use it. If it sees you in a back alley is they're going to knife, you. The phone is uncompromising, I think I mean, because they're saying like they didn't make any compromise? No, they don't say they didn't make compromises. They say the phone is uncompromising. I mean, isn't it uncompromising it's not going to compromise with you? It is. It is no communication whatsoever. It was just a whole bunch of. Yeah, that's a platitude. That's a nice one. Yeah. The whole thing just like it's much shit. I mean, are you gonna get one though? You're not gonna get any? I, I did not see anything in that presentation that made me think that's better than uncompromising phone. I think even described my phone is uncompromising last year probably Mel at compromises. I was laughing at the name. So now it's the iphone x. s? No, they didn't go with that after. All right. They did excess in excess MAC, technically, and tennis max. I thought they said x. they said, okay. Well, just been the ten. Our ten are. Yeah. The regular. I don't know why. I don't think they ever fully explain it rent super retina. Who knows? It's like the lower. I think ours cheaper model. They used to be using now because he used to be like three, four, five, six. Now it's like at ours and to our people. They really screwed themselves because they skipped nine entirely well. They still could go back to nine. Although, I guess at this point they would have done like an eight s or something right. They only did. Tasks. They got rid so they didn't announce any new touch ID phones, it's all face ID stuff. What's what's eleven going to be eleven? You think or thing is going to be like the little strange. You're going to get one of. Bobby Brown x. plus one s LT like, do that when they start over again. Like once they hit the double digits after like re- like iphone one. New iphone one. There's some companies that just walked that up. I, I always think also about Microsoft with the XBox XBox three sixty Xbox One. What's the next one? I mean come on guys have to have some consistency, triumph, XBox box. I don't know. Execute. We'll play stations. The only one that's ever had any consistency in the hardware releases right, but at least Nintendo doesn't number things necessarily to sixty four. But that was describing the hardware which was important. It was three sixty. I wouldn't call that number. That was I feel more of a all around term. Yeah, you simply with the one. I mean it's obviously not the first XBox, right? Isn't that a decent? There's gonna be a new XBox this year this year? No, no. These would have announced that he three now. That's true. Yeah, maybe twenty twenty why you think it's going to be called? I don't know early prediction. They're going to call it original XBox. No, they're going to call it police station six XBox sixty four XBox PlayStation. Eric drops him, and he said they were okay, but they're not. Are these the ones who dropped? I didn't. I didn't drop any. Okay line. I like this guy microphone now up to yell. He's got a Mike, this safety open. So you're back now. How long were you? Were you out? Beco- almost four months. It's long time. Yeah, I took an extra month or so to spend more time at home back Hanoch came back to work. I wanted to go working from home. This is my first full week back in the office. That's cool. Has the feel it's pretty good. It's a lot easier. The second time around. Yeah, yeah. We're ready to digital stupid kids. I mean, it just it's weird. I feel like I came out of a coma for the most part like everything has changed around here. Yep. There's a new couch there is I can't sing. Yeah. There's a new Cal. We're on this last week. Yeah, I didn't pay attention to couch clearly you're on your side. What is the phone charger there, but in my world, nothing changed. It was same shit different day. And so it's like a time travel? Yeah. I feel like I fell into a black hole with the baby. Grants on the kid. Thank you. She's a good baby. She looks exactly like you. That's really weird. It's kind of creepy. Not at not an. It's just, yeah, sometimes I look down on. It's like looking in a mirror. Thirty years ago clementine now she'll be four next month. So it was a four year difference between them three and a half, three and a half. Exactly. Good. Good. It's about how far apart my brother and I are. Does your age problems between you and your brother know? I can never saw him as a peer. I always felt like he was a lot younger than me because the way our birthdays Phil, he was four years behind me in school. With that was really the only thing I think that if that's the worst thing you look down. Good. Yeah, exactly. You will always be a baby. He's like thirty three years old. Yeah, my sister's also four years younger than me. It's the same thing where it's like we were not really ever in the same school like she, I guess we were in the same elementary school for a year or two before I left, and they kept a really small kids like on the other end of the school. I never. I never shared a campus until I took my victory lap at UT and he was a freshman at I was an extra senior also last week for the podcast. Gavin was saying that he was going to have guests come washed podcast. And so this up chairs and people came in with an most like, oh, like, who are you bring in is like, oh, this is my sister. What? What's the name? Live Livia people in the booth. Sister and her boyfriend who are visiting and I'm just like yours, nor do. I knew he had a brother. Yeah, his brother and a sister. There's system SIS. I know you're a high whispering in the booth right now. I had, I don't know. Like, would you guys have given them like more special treatment if you knew it was really together? Maybe probably. When you talk in that Mike, does it go into the recording? Yeah, yeah, it's hot. It's red hot house, like the voice of God? No, no, it's better now. Eric now and good, Eric works at the. No. Okay. Well, he was my boss neutral, Eric, that's not exist in air. Really deal people in this building has also Eric cherry. Oh yeah. And then probably another Eric that we don't know what the most common name at rooster teeth. Is it Eric, Michael, Patrick, Patrick, or John or prison? There are a lot of John's does Patrick's to, yes, some of the Johns have no h, yeah, I think he's the only one with no eight. Okay. Yeah, he's the weird one. Why does it have an h. so wait John and our designer events. He's no h two. So the name Jonathan has no h, except. Oh, but the standalone named John has an age. They're two different names. One's a nickname once. A full name? Yeah. So John rising her, that's his birth name. John Jalen. Oh, his Berkeley, Joan, Jonathan. I thought it was ask them right now. Okay. I, I'm pretty sure his name is just John. And that's possible too. Yeah, anything can. I mean, there's bekker's or Jonathan satellite birth name or like legal name. I'm just gonna ask that is your name or Jonathan. We'll see if you replace. I think he's he's busy right now. He's the birthday today on the day. We're recording this special John. Special special? No. No, you can't. You can never treat I since I don't want anyone going out of their way for me on my birthday. I don't go out of my way for anybody on there. Increasingly, anti birthday, the older I get, I don't want. I don't want the attention. It doesn't matter. And I knew when I sat down to lunch, I sat next to Barbara John unused. His birthday intentionally didn't say anything about it. Not even like, hey, man, happy birthday now think no. I like intentionally I'm getting away from telling people happy birthday just because it gets too overwhelming for me. Yeah, so much to keep up on. I used to check Facebook. I really need to talk. It's John Jewish. Okay. All right. I used to get paranoid about forgetting to wish people happy birthday, and then I would message I'm a day or two later, like all my time. So sorry. Like. Nobody, dine other, some people who get very sensitive don't. People are super. But like to me, I'm just like, I don't know. I don't. I don't remember anyone's birthday. Like that's like across the board. I remember your sister's birthday July seventh holy ship. Because my birthday. Okay. There's some reason. Remember January eight nine thousand nine hundred. Eight hundred eighteen house. I remember Gus is always to twenty two because it's my university with Michael a rumor Bernie's because it's my voice. Yeah, birthdays a word. It's just like the only I guess. I guess what it stems from is you didn't do anything. You just vanished to not die for another year. And when you're young, it's like big fucking deal. Yeah. You actually you're more likely to die when you're young. It's pretty easy to die when you're little. So I mean we want you to a certain age like adulthood. It's like, yeah, I mean, yeah, you're probably going to be around for a couple more decades to me the like your twenty first birthday, which is that's a fun one. That's like the best. Good. The last good one and then twenty five twenty five. You can rent cars for cheaper than apart and then but thirty five is great because then you can run for president. Yeah, so that's because a lot of people are doing that just Yep. Are you gonna run for president, Chris of the h ROY. Well, that's the well, that's that's how I get into politics. I start with way, then we're working way. I tried to convince Chris to run for president of his HOA Twenty-one is nothing in Canada. Nineteen, some provinces right eighteen and then otherwise is yeah. But yeah, in twenty one is like nothing birthday. So you don't like go out and party on twenty. I go across twenty. I think like maybe because the US is such an influence on our culture, like it's still like an exciting birthday because you think of twenty one is like you're now an adult even though like those eighteen for most of us eighteen or nineteen. I feel like twenty-five is bigger birthday in my mind because that's like you're officially in your mid twenties. You could rent a car now, I think your insurance also goes down. Yeah, yeah. I remember when I was in college and the year that like everyone turned twenty one like you had to go out and drink. Oh yeah, so much because every other week someone was turning twenty one. And I think I think on sixth street on your twenty first birthday, you get like free shots or something. So it was like a big deal. Everyone had to go out and get really drunk and whatever. And it was just like, you got exhausting and it was like always trying to make a big deal about it and like it's funny how that changes so quickly. Yeah, like a sesame on read it. It was like some memes zone posted, and it said when I was younger, I used to try to sneak at my house to go to parties. And now I try sneak at a party to go back to my. I did one time. This is a drunken thing. I, I remember I was with a friend and they've vomited in a bag. And then for whatever reason I was like, I'm going to save this and put it. Cruise, so you can have your twenty first vomit in the freezer revenue. You're so sensitive. No, yeah. So I like a bag of vomit. In his freezer or. Taping it out on his twenty second birthday and wedding. River. I don't even think I like follow it up. Probably woke up. Do you think maybe one day he just looked at this user. Soup. Cruise. He's gonna wanna. Remember. Oh, so you're like because it was like a weird. It was like a, I don't know, like an award or something like, oh, you did it. Healthy in bed for you. There's someone who wants tweeted out a bunch of and they're like, oh, it's going to be my twenty first birthday and a few days. Where do you think I should go to get blackout drunk? Like what's your recommendation? And I just responded. My recommendation is don't get blackout drums like that is not a goal you want to achieve, and I never understood that mentality of like just wanna. Go get fucking wasted and not remember anything like once in my life when I was really having a bad day. Yeah. Usually it's a scape, right? Like you want to forget stuff. Not a good excuse, or you're raising money for charity and wanna make cheese. Can go up on you though. You sought that out the way. I was having a time during that extra life trying to get you to stop drinking and stop getting other people during. That's the problem when people tell me not to do something, I'm going to do it. And then when I'm already intoxicated, it gets even worse. Like a challenge. It wasn't even that, like you guys would spin the wheel and it landed on everyone takes three shots, and I'll I was like, how? How do just one shot? How about three people do one shot, sort of what I three. And you're like, no, and you grab the bottle. Chugging it. It was a the best decision, not a, not at all. It was for charity is a good cause. There's a, there's a wing of the children's hospital now named after Hristo, which it'd be faster cheese domain. No God, no, that she still. When's the last time you? So beckon?

Thank you for sponsoring this episode of the received podcast. So what I did was. Was kind of the opposite I wanted to get away, but I also am not a big fan of going to nature. So what I did was it was before iphones existed before like you could travel around the world with your cell phone. I just went to Japan. I was like, I want to go somewhere where I don't speak the language and I want to go somewhere for my phone doesn't work, and we're no one can find me. And so I just went to Japan. It'd be terrifying. I don't think I'd go to Japan or any other foreign country without my phone because I feel like that is such a good source of information and like, oh yeah, you can just Google how to get somewhere. What trains trains are so much easier when you have a phone. Yeah, I was thinking about that. Well, traveling solo because you guys were like, are you going to survive with your phone? It'll tell you everyone tell you what to do and also like you have to look how to say something or even like to translate the sign, whatever it is. How did you do that? Figure it out if you need to, you'll figure it out. People did it before before smartphone. We, they're just like enough people that you encounter that also spoke English. I know I really didn't speak very much for two weeks. I was. Kind of the point like I wanted to get away like I didn't wanna talk to anyone. I didn't wait Japan, Tokyo. Okay. So I mean, you can get by, okay, I really wanna go Japan at some point. I don't know if I'm gonna make it out this year, but it's like definitely on my bucket list, man. I'm so jealous miles and. So much fun. And that's like one of the reasons why it looks I watching their trip and seeing all the places they're going like the big cities, but also like the little places within Tokyo or Japan. Did you see the thing with all the deer, the deer? Yeah. Do they go to Nahra? I don't know. Oh, man. I got mauled by a deer there bit me. Dear are so conditioned to be fed by humans that they start chopping aggressive headbutted miles in the ass. And in the photo it looks like it's sticking its tongue out as as its headbutting him and see if I can find find that they want set us that site is so awesome. There's a temple there. That is the largest wooden structure in the world. It's a world heritage site, but it I mean you go in photos onto Justice. It's so Indiana Jones. Like there's this little wooden statue of Buddha, fucking huge. Yeah. It's just one of the coolest place I've ever been. I really wanna go there, but I don't know if it's kind of place that I guess you've been there before you because you've been there. Is it a trip that you would recommend taking a group? No, no, no. It'd be like a smaller group like just Michael and I went and we were able to cover a lot of ground. Okay. And I just I don't like traveling with groups in general because it seems like you always ended up waiting until one group of four is my ideal travel charms. Also, when you end up with a group, you don't do anything that anyone wants to do. You kind of like settle comedian thing. Something. Yeah. Oh, this is the few scroll to the next photo. There's like a close up of deers head. I don't know. I feel like it's with four people. You've could figure things out a bit easier and you have more people to talk to you in a in a place where no one else speaks English. I feel like with two people, Mike it, I don't know part to figure things out or we'll also look. I think the other upside, of course, I'm gonna advocate for a smaller group because that's what I was. I think the other benefit to going with a small group is your, you're less insulated in your group that you have to interact with the people, and you have to see what's going on. You can't fall back on, oh, I'm just going to communicate and get by with these people that I'm with. It's true. I wanna rose in Montreal. I went to the mountain. It's not really mountain. Yeah. And because I heard they had all these raccoons and I went to go, like once goes, yeah. Well, they had like really friendly raccoons. Yeah, and but I think I went, I went at night and I brought chips and I was like trying to catch. But like that's why people go to Canada. I mean, I think that right there is the most Chris thing ever set was front account for or was at the time he tried to freeze pew. It could go one way or the other. Yeah. I didn't see any. So I didn't like Seaney raccoons. Those like my that was the most disappointing thing that well. Disappointed you, you didn't. Canada was not get rabies what wasn't trying to get re well, yeah. I mean, I just wanted to do you think any raccoons are like like friendly house raccoons? They're all just gonna like they're all their pictures of this where they're like people hanging out with raccoons, Google search people. Most of my life never hung out with a record. I had heard that it was a thing, so I got some awesome chips and it went up and I was like, no reckons that I saw, but that'd be a trail. I didn't do the trail thing. I was looking for the raccoons look out at the time I did and I was like there too many people here for raccoons. Well, not. I don't know. I mean, there's there's no pictures of people hanging out with her. On yelp I saw it. So some brand Kooning new site. What else did you do in Montreal? I, I meant to give you recommendations and I completely forgot. Oh, you went to Montreal to beco- either. I was really close week. I went I it's been exactly a year ago where I made a baby. You made a baby, it's and I know exactly where it was. Is that this whole man? That's interesting. So you could you know where it was it in a house on recent. Something that's you square areas. So interesting. You could pinpoint that was it. That was the baby? Yeah. Oh, God, Phyllis. Well, I didn't do anything as as the piece of pizza cutter. Why is this here? Pete's next to me. Wonderful. The booby-trapped like birdie worse here. Yeah, that's Bernie's. Yeah. Going to skip, put it over here. Does it feel like an accomplishment where like I went on vacation, I made a baby feel like all the data's there, and I feel like you're you'd be interested in like. Take euless database approach to conception like it's just, yeah. Did you have all those apps attract like when you were fertile and everything? Oh, yeah. Pete on these sticks like three times a day and charted, my temperature. So it was it like damn, oh shit. We gotta go right now like, yeah, yeah, actually, that's a fun time to be a new relationship when you're trying to make a baby, it takes all the fun out of sex. Does it really? Yeah. It becomes so routine because. Three fifteen today. It's go time rolls around as quickly as possible. Please. We we have a window between three fifteen and three sixteen. Go, go, go, go, go Mets. Ester sent me this article earlier speaking of making babies. This forty five year old man lost his virginity because he had waited so long because he was born without a penis. Elliott. I think I heard you talking about this earlier. Yeah, so he had to get a bionic penis installed into his body so that he could finally have sex for the first time kindle head testicles. It was like some genetic condition. Are your e throw a, they don't. I know more. You'll it. They're like, how does it work on with? I mean, is there. Well, is there a way. Like shoot any, you're having, how does it work? Assume that all of his internal organs and everything like everything was there, there was just no peanut external shaft for that. So could he like just sprayed pinches saying like, could he Cutie, Jackie late? Because if you had testicles and everything else, but just to shoot it, shoot it out or like to stimulate the shooting of. An interesting, I don't know. So he had sexist peanuts at forty, five. Yes, he went to Cal. Okay. And so it's just it's crazy that you can do that. It costs the surgery from the UK, the surgery cost fifty thousand pounds. Best purchasing ever made? I guess that's probably word, you know, like we have to take skin off of his arm to cover it. So it looks like a row has robot dick. It look forum again. Very good. Stephanie slapper. When they when he first had it installed or planet that he had to walk around with an erection for ten days, going through puberty essentially. Worked hit. Are you sure he walked around because I am sure it was pretty late headed after. Hit kit to test out the function every morning and night and leave it a wreck for twenty minutes. So teenager fan. So when you're that situation, I imagine you get to choose big you on it. Describes it as ridiculously big. Compared to what he had before. Also after forty, five years of not having anything God, that must be so strange to all of a sudden after forty five years of life now have this piece of you that was missing. So I have to assume there's no sensation like they're no nerve endings and his bionic. I I, I mean, how else would he? How would you get just engage the robot arm. Erect people. There's an image explaining it, but the Texas. All really small. Let's see. Skin and muscle is taken from the left arm and a vein in the right leg. The skin is wrapped around the vein in a tube, surgeons, mold of the flesh in the shape of a penis and attached to the body inside the new penises, the penile implant. This is comprised of a saline reservoir a cylinder that runs the length of the penis at a pump and release valve. That's inside the scrotum. The implant allows easier to pump saving fluid that is kept in the reservoir into the cylinder. Once fully pumped peanuts will be hard enough for sexual intercourse. So it's filled with saline rope, theoretically. You could have one installed anywhere, correct? Yes. Right. I remember just saying like if you had fifty thousand pounds and you're like needed. And you wanted one, where would you get? Didn't we have this conversation or y'all had it on another podcast place to have a vagina. Oh, well, but this is like you get to choose where you want five hundred. I think we've talked about that. We're the best and worst place out of John. Where's the best place to have a penis that extra one or just let's say you didn't have yours. Where would you put it anywhere on your body? I think I'd put it where I'm talking about additional I wouldn't want if I, if I didn't have any penis, I wouldn't be like, yeah, give me one of my cheek. I'm going to write one. Yeah, sixty five thousand dollars by the way. Sixty five thousand dollars. Would you put it. Well, part of this is permanent by the way like this is where it's going to live. What about one like on your? But like did you have like right. Did you have like real Pena's? No, like backward sex or like to what like piggyback you yet, or you have like you you thrusting, but you're thrusting Ford and backwards. The whole. Let's get a look. You have to grow up in front of you. One behind him one in front and you're like. I would not want to be the girl behind you. No, you don't want you to want to ask dick. Between. When you go to the bathroom, you have to make sure it doesn't dip into the water. It's a whole ordeal, dude. Guess everywhere you sit to if you get. Oh, I said on my dick. Three ball bearing citizens. Have you ever shit on your balls? No. I've never been asked that either. Normally, I feel like women ask you if you sit on your balls, but I've never been asked if I show itself. Oh. Just because I feel like as you get older, your balls like hanging to toilet, it's not. And if you ever have diarrhea over spray sprays, maybe like I've seen toilets, there's just like trying to the rim of toilet. There's someone who had a very violent a w. I mean, like a whole wall where you run until you get. Imagine if someone pooped in the splash the splashes got up on their bowls, but I don't think like shitting on the bowls. It's also like. Like, I don't know. I feel like your balls, they don't always hang right. Like sometimes they kind of come up on the temperature. But I guess when you get when you get older and they say a little more, yeah. But even then there's plus Bernice, he's still around or or if you're sack her maybe because shit on his balls. I don't know. I mean, I guess if you were trying to you could. That make sure that pig that shit on his walls, pig balls like right under the, but no, you're says a little turret on them. Pretty funny. Oh, gross. Well, I got look that up. Now. Pig takes on balls. That's a little didn't. Yeah. Didn't Zach make a joke one time that like when he goes to the bathroom, his Bulger in the toilet water. I don't. I mean, how did you make me look. Is there like a variety of images? No, it's the same image all the time, and I can't see that. The biggest ridiculously huge balls. That's that's part of the problem. Don't look that up place. If you you've Allieu yourself. Don't look that up. The linked up. Tundra, man, I was asking you about going back to cruise earlier. I went to eagle pass recently for the first time in many years, and I forgot what a fucking shit hole, and it's like better now than it was when you live there too. Like I was there and I was like, I could finally start to put my finger on what's wrong with that town, and it's a town where people have just given up. Ben people just don't do not give a fuck. I was at a restaurant and I was there. Someone that I was with I had a question is like it's the kinda restaurant where you go up to the counter and there's a menu and you tell the person account of what you want the caller number kind of talk about it. Right. And we go up there and the person I'm with says, you know, sees that there's something on the main chef salad and the person what's what's in the chefs salad. The person who's working behind the restaurant turns around, looks at the menu and just said, chef salad so person. Yeah, I don't know. The person was this. Just like, does it have me like is they're having it or anything? And the guy I, I don't know it's a solid but no attempt to find out. No, no, nothing. It's like, oh, okay. Yeah, right. Then later that day we went down to a group of us went down. There's a casino there. We went down to the casino and we were sitting in the restaurant and there's like a bar right there. And one of the guys I was wished like, oh, I'm going to get something to drink. So waiter comes by, and the guy that I'm with is Hispanic is families for Mexico, the waiters all also Mexican. Almost everyone downers Mexican. And the guy I'm with tells the waiter. I one eight Huda tequila and soda and the waiters like what. Duda tequila and soda, what the guy I'm with goes. All right. Just give me tequila and soda, and the waiter says coke Pepsi. Kimmy tequila and club soda with three wedges of line. And he just seems so it I meant like, oh, what type of soda? It's like, Yep, no-one cares took twenty five minutes. Come out every time we go out to eat on there. I have a nervous breakdown because it takes like an hour and a half to get your food and everyone's okay with it. It's just start for the court because it's just a slow license cares. Nobody cares and nobody has any real restaurant experience. So yeah, it's like they cook it like cooking at home. I would think it would be like smaller towns. People are more polite and friendly and wanting to be more welcoming of people. Maybe that's just the idea in my head. People know if you're not from that, it will stare you. It's a, it's not a very welcoming place. Well, actually get pulled over every time I went home just because it's like a new car into, oh. Jokes still do get pulled over like every third time or so, really because I don't have a license plate on the front of my car, and they always every time about that when I had a first for the first time ever something weird happen to be on the way back from eagle pass his time. So when you when you're down on the border, when you're leaving the border, there's immigration checkpoints. Normally like about fifteen twenty miles outside of town on the highway. It was raining pretty bad when I was leaving and I got to the American checkpoint and you know, there's normally a stop sign. There was a go sign. There was no one working there, and it was a green octagon in white letters, take a picture because it happened so fast. I pulled up in those knowing they're interested goes, oh shit. I talked about that. Our tax rate. I saw a ghost sign my God, so they exist? Yes. Well, that was like, that's really weird. You never see the immigration checkpoint, unmanned? Yeah. So did you see this is like a couple of months ago they were putting up immigration checkpoints in the north, like along the Canadian border and everyone was freaking out there like ten mates tales is happening, and I was like, God, I grew up with that. That's not strange to me. I mean, they would set up shop and just stop cars going by. I'm gonna talk a little on my ass, but I think there's like this weird extra judiciary zone that exists along thirty miles of their national border where you're you have less rights to deny search and seizure of your property. And I think that's it's like using that law is why they can set up checkpoints close to the border for immigration purposes in the United States. I remember when I moved here, I was on a work visa and I was convinced that I was going to have to bring my documentation with me wherever I went. Even if. Just like driving to the grocery store because I was like, what if someone pulls me over and asked to see like my paper, my papers, and then I was like, they're probably not going to do that anything though they could ever now, so I don't drive around with them. But there was a time when I first me two awesome where they were in my car for the first two months. You're probably not gonna meet. That can be okay. Yeah, it's a, it's grown a lots totally different. I drove through Correo for briefly on staff. Did you take your car? No. Now, because there's, no, you're asking me. That's how I was talking to you about it. Yeah, there's no elect fast chargers down there. There's that slow. I stopped by that place all day. That has like a slow charger. But yeah, that's the woman who was working there. I saw like I had a meal there and so does that whenever user tesla charger out there as you know, never seen anyone use it before, like whatever service provides it. I guess you can comment on different locations, and I saw some guy was like this worked. It was great, blah, blah, blah. But there was only one one guys use it. Yeah, we did the math if we got to my parents house and plugged in the car into normal outlet. As soon as we got there, we would have enough to get back home after like forty eight, straight hours, charging the trickle speed for most places you can you don't worry about it, but down there, there's like a weird pocket where there's nothing. Yeah, and they'll get better. They'll be that one in Dili and then I think they're going to be doing more along. I thirty five, but for now yes. No, that's one place. You do not want to be stranded with electric car house. I guess car working for you. Chris goes. I guess I still gas guzzling. As the steering wheel. I think it's coming off what? Yeah. Cover that on really loose, like steer out. You, it's in like when I turn it like a turns and then I, it's like keep turning it before. Turning and clicks turns that it turns which you have to keep turning, turn it, and then you have to turn an extra bit just to get an start turning. So it's like loose. It's like it's spins a lot while you turn it. That sounds pretty. I'm gonna. I'm gonna look into. You're like, you know how like, yeah. A person fake driving poorly in there. Like Dennis, that's what I do all the time to get that check like now I'm going to. No, no, I know. That's like it was all my to do this for today. Okay. Because that's like the if there's one thing I don't want to fail while I'm driving. It's my steering wheel. Yeah, I'm I'm like, yeah, we're gonna take it. I don't know having looked into that part yet. By taking care of it. You mean you were going to start investigating jiffy loops and stuff nearby? I think it's just like loose thing, loose bolt Elsie. A loose bolt cutter yourself, like a car person. You don't want to take the dash off and try to investigate it. Stephen septic tried to replace a steering wheel. I saw this on Instagram. Oh, my carbon-fiber steering wheel and fucked it up. He took it all apart and couldn't get it back together. So he's just driving around with steering old, all these wires, some shit that I do not like even if I think figure it out. I'm still like, I'm going to let a professional take care of this car stuff. Any type of electrical stuff, plumbing, stuff on like. I want fuck that up. Electric city. I would say scary. It's like it's invisible and it can kill you. Yeah, I don't want. I don't wanna. I don't wanna mess with me. Uncompromised. To compromise lightning. No compromising their man. I saw there was a. What do they call it? A poll that was done. Nothing was a Harris poll, and they were gauging people's favorite restaurants in the United States. Like, oh, like for example, best burger restaurant as voted on by people in these poll was five guys. Coffee shop was crispy cream. Okay. Best Mexican restaurants. Taco Bill. So. Skin restaurant in the United States is Taco Bell said that in most of the US Taco Bell probably is best Mexican food around or the only in some places. You know, they got stuff like Nacho fries. My girl eighty Nacho fries grandmothers to grow up near the home of the Nacho where it was invented the Doritos locos tacos. What is it? Like? Spicy dorito shell. It's actually pretty good mean me and Bernie went to go get those when we're old at the old office. Did you try the chicken showen? No, we haven't never picked up a lot of those one day and they're pretty good. Is it like cooked chicken and it's like super, super thin hammered shell, Bredon fried chicken, fried chicken shell. I've been. I've been trying to find this, don't judge me, but I've been trying to find frozen pizzas that have unusual crusts. So it's like sometimes you could find frozen pizzas cauliflower crust. And one time I was at the store and I saw this frozen pizza had said, like. Something something on the box caught my eye and I looked at it and it said that the crust was made entirely out of chicken, and I was like, well, now I have to try that. Okay, so I bought it and I took it on this frozen pizza. You put it in just like any other put in the oven and let it heat up, then you eat it, and it was fucking gross. It was so disgusting. Ten, it was. It was pretty thin. I guess they must've taken like chicken meat or material like processing and. Yeah, and made it like super thin and tried to make it. Yeah, it was pretty good. It was. It was it was gross. So if you ever see a chicken cross pizza, do not eat that you could Google to get a picture. But when I was in New York City, this last week, we went to a place called quality Italian and one of their specialties. There is a chicken parmesan pizza. Follow up the Italian quality, quality quality, Italian in New York City chicken parmesan, pizza is it comes out and it's like it looks exactly like a pizza like it's got cheese cut into slices and everything like that. But there's no crust or tomato sauce or anything like that. It's just like a chicken parmesan. It looks amazing. So it's like chicken on the bottom, but it's like the. Yeah, big chicken. Yeah, I. And then like whatever chicken parmigiana has is amazing. Does it have like a crispy bottom? Yes, Brown. So like it's just chicken on the bottom, but it's crispy delicious. So if you ever in New York City go to quality Italian and try that just so good. You were just in New York? Yeah, could've told me I was there. Was there before you you? We're like at the airport at the same time, I think I've flown arriving in. You're leaving? Yeah. It's a fourteen inch slab of chicken parm whom so good you share it obviously or not? I wouldn't. Although so good. I love weird stuff. Like I feel like sometimes places go a little crazy with it. Like Gordo's I think is an interesting concept. But for the most part, it's like stuff I wouldn't want to eat the Dow net. Yeah, me it makes you feel bad about eating there, but it's good. It's good burger that doughnut burger so good, but just not something I would ever like seek out. I've like if I'm there in the airlock. Okay, sure. Maybe, but like chicken pizza like that. Oh, yeah, I think I would. I would. I would seek that out. I mean, you going to New York comic con? No. Okay. It's too bad. I was gonna say, if you go get some chicken pizza, we make one. Good. I doubt it will be nearly as good as the one that they make their. We have some piece of projects in the works for Leon. Maybe that's why the cutters over there are we going to debut that pizza project? I think a prototypes been worked on already, so I think we're lessons have been learned. I should've eaten lunch. Do you want a pizza? I'll get it and we're since we're done. I'm hungry. Now I'll talk of pizza. Let me read this thing here. What am I doing.

There you go. It's a nice skyline. Thanks for showing. Your sites and for Lennox, North Atlanta skyline looks like, yeah, I learned something today. You've been Atlanta. To Linda for the immersion, four guy. I don't even like, I don't know. That's like not even on my radar places I've been. We weren't. We weren't necessarily in Atlanta an hour out of, I mean, I know. 'cause me and Brandon went up for like you just redirecting. Yeah. So we went up like the weekend before and we're, we're there for about a week, but you guys, I think we're just up there for like a day. Now. We were there like today's two or three days. I don't remember anything about that trip. I remember I remember so many that immersion. I remember I was in Austin from Bernie was sick. I think between takes like I was laying down on the floor because I felt so bad. Yeah, I remember we had to wait. There was a place where we are having everybody wait like the cast and crew, and it was like a place above the track. So you could get down into the track. I remember having to wait there for hours and it was just like a very long day and it was hot. It was really hot. Maybe it was starting to get. I think it was like an April when we went April. They also did the podcast. Oh yeah. Yeah, some milestone, yeah. Yeah, era which milestone I is video was it was it for the tenth anniversary of strategic? Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Those April twenty thirteen. Yes. So it's always weird. The difference between like directing something in acting and something because when you're acting like, oh, you wait around a whole lot. Yeah, and there's never enough time. I always need. You always want more like one more hour. What do you prefer like directing is more fulfilling? That's also a lot more stressful acting is more fun. Yeah. Yeah. I guess that's true. Speaking of making people do stuff. Have you seen those videos where people have developed like AI that can make people dance? Yes. What you remember there was Berkeley, right? Yeah, there was that controversy with like deep fakes last year where like they could superimpose people's. Faces realistically into photos where they weren't well, this like videos or video. This is like taking video of a dancer and capturing the movement, and then applying it to a photo of someone who isn't dancing. So it looks like they could take a photo of you and make it look like you're doing really like the two I saw at one was like a pop and lock routine, and one was belly very elaborate and letting belly it uses your body and everything to like, yes, your face. So it's, you view, upload a picture. Here's an example. So the source videos in the upper left. And so the person on the right is the target. They didn't actually do this dance. But they're just using a photo of that person. Yeah, you see a little like, well, this is really good. The ballet wins funny because they're spinning so much that the head just stops turning at one point. Exorcists style. So I mean, obviously it's, it's not perfect. You see it breaks sometimes, but intellect short bursts. It's actually really good person is doing it hundred percent, but you would never you would never see that for the most part be like, oh, that's fake. Like you would think like, oh, no, that's person's actually a weird video glitch or something like that, especially, yeah, watching it online, you think like it's compression or something. I really wanna learn how to shuffle dance. We don't have to now. I know. Yeah, I could just put myself on a on a dancer, but I don't know how I discovered this. I think like I started seeing on Instagram, all of a sudden shuffled dancing, which is like rave dancing or people like shit, like it's like the Red Eye man, but more intense. Yeah, people glide around and do this incredible dance. My goal of mine to learn how to do that, but I'm really uncoordinated. So I will do that with you, Barbara. You want to shoulder and says they'll do that. We will learn like piece by piece, right? Like you learned one little body movement like I running man, dance. I think that's like the first introductory step that you learn, but the way people could just dance to every beaten every possible song and make it look good. I envy those people. I want to learn how to do it even though there's no situation where actually danced in my life other than if I got downtown drunk once a year or kicks dance party your recital, God. So then the other thing that I saw related to like deep fakes and putting people in positions that they really aren't in is not in America, starting a service where you can upload photos of yourself and have yourself digitally inserted into porn, know what? Why is that a good idea? Which raises a lot of questions about like, how can you prove that it's you and that you consent to that or and they're willing to take money and profit off of that. It's really, really bizarre. So it's a website, naughty America. They're just going to. They're going to the. The headline that I read was not the America wants to monetize deep fake porn. Yeah, I don't know. That feels kind of weird. Yeah. Yeah. I've seen people like. I wonder what the market is. Right? Like who I bet it's a big market. Yeah, I feel like the evil intent of it far outweighs people just needing that extra step to. And it's a lot more it's I think barking for that would be way more people uploading pictures of other people that's not not himself. I think it'd be people who wanted to see like certain celebrities. How do you like attempt to blackmail people? How do you clear like image, clean image rights and consent to that kind of stuff. I don't know how you approach at is you have to like upload a piece of paper. My name is John. I need porn or upload like a government ID or something to prove that it's actually, you know. That's like amateur porn sites do. So I guess what's good for the goose. I requested Instagram verification. The other day, it's like in the settings I did too, and you have to upload. A copy of like a government ID and I was like, I was like, do I really want to do this? It made me really think about it. I got go through declined. Oh, you did you did y'all are elite? How long did it take? Pretty quick like three or four days? They said I didn't meet the requirements. All I wanna do is just have links in my stories. It's all I want. What are the requirements then? I don't describe this just like you need to be someone notable public figures. I think that's all it says. Much more explicit and can provide links to like prove that you're a person. There's none of that on. Instagram is just a binary, like never even applied. I didn't had it. We had that was we had a connection, yeah, cigarette we picked out a few people who are active people who were more active, slaughtering. A verified badge is a check that appears. Next Instagram accounts indicate that the account is the authentic presence of a notable public figures. Celebrity global brand or entity. It represents submitting a request for verification, does not guarantee your account will be verified? Yeah. Is it like Twitter where like if you apply, you can't apply again until a certain period of time? I think it said I could play again. It's some point in the future. I haven't tried. I don't know if it's like shut down. Let me see. Yeah. When when we had that person, that connection from Instagram come through, I wasn't using Instagram yet. I regret. Yeah, not trying to get them to talking about it and we were like, Gus hasn't cigarette, but he doesn't use it now. Just kind of squatting lately. Twitter's been fucking everything up so much. What kind of meeting at about Twitter? They changed their API access for third party apps so that now third party apps aren't as useful as they used to be and the Twitter apps? Terrible. I almost never use it. So it's like, why would I use a platform that makes it difficult to use it? Where do you to ask it's in settings and then request verification? Yeah, I can. I can do it again. It's not disabled for me. A weird things. Someone said to me while ago you might not have it verified on the different account. Sorry, tell you what? Chris random story. But I had a weird thing. Someone said to me on on a date was the first time someone had like gone on like Tinder date or something like that. And then I was like, oh, well, what made me be the person that you were like wanted to go out with and they said issues or like she made the comment about like, oh, you know, oh, I, I was pretty sure you weren't associated pather serial killer anything. And I said why? And then they said those funny, this will most socio pass or charming. And you're not charming enough, tibia sociopaths. I felt. Okay. I thought you were gonna say something like she saw your account was verify this. This. You're not sure. Oh my God. It's like the date went well. Yeah. No, it was fine. But here again. Term her enough. I don't know. Oh, Tom to you, was it better or worse than your day? With three or with the the old women that was awful. It was a really bad date went on a date. Where does she talk about an always open? But the short version is date was already drunk when I showed up and she had befriended a bunch of old ladies who are at the bar. So then they were like spectating the date. And then at some point to one of the old lady started talking about like orphans and my day started crying, oh my God, and then and then she start talking about her, her parents and they both like ended up just crying together like in a like a clinic, like I'm going to console you, and then I, I was just like, were you late? No. She got there early to. I mean, I understand like having a drink to like make yourself feel more comfortable getting drunk before a date. What I think it was one of those things that she was out drinking, and then it was like, oh, come have a drink. I was like for the moment. Damn out drinking with these old ladies. Yeah, join me anyway. It was a really bad day because of just a lot of crying that I was not a part of, not that I wanted to be a part of the cry. You should just start crying to be part of it and I couldn't. I could you also don't cry, don't cry. I mean, I could try, but I could it a once the last time you. I don't know. Like I think of cried once in like six years. Seven like that. Guess I think this this is so fucking dorky. I remember the last time I cried. Was it? It was at the end of return of the king. When I saw for the first. Long time ago. That was a lot that's way more than six years ago. Wasn't it sixteen or seventeen years cries last time you. Not only not crying, but also drying. Like going to the west coast, leaving. Cry every day. Yeah, there was of my life. Yeah, spilling always bed. Yeah, I cry. When I feel any emotion in excess me too. I was thinking, I always like well up or get choked up a lot. So you just don't feel emotions. Adopt that. Gus robotic way of life, uncompromising. The title of this podcast podcast, what is it five. Oh, nine, uncompromising compromising. No compromises here. Oh, man. Oh, did y'all see that? We're thinking that. That motorcycle race where one of the racers reached out and grabbed the brakes on another motorcycle. Oh. Allowed to do that? Are you guys? We're racing, they're really close to each other and the guy on the right just reached over and pump the brakes on the motorcycle. Enough spun out just slowed the guy down because I guess it's the right hat's what is that? That's the rear tire. Tyrant. Oh, shit. Now the guy did not flip or any. Yeah, that seems like that's cheating. Was it a street race? Mila was like a professional race. I don't know what the Moto two. Are there any rules against tampering with other people's? I'm sure there he got. He got in trouble here. It is banned for life. The fuck. So. He doesn't even like hold it down. Then you see if it's obviously like professional racers? Yeah. Yeah. Bins. So he. It looks like Mitch Benn for lost control. Wow, bad decision. I mean, that's crazy. Like you said, I mean, you could have hurt, lost control knows how fast they're going. Yeah, like flipped over the bike and sucks himself up. That's fucking terrible people are. People are awful. Yeah. Like in a professional setting where it's like, you know that you've like worked up to this point and you should respect other people who are also like in this competition with you. And also it's going to be seen this campaign. What do you thinking that's so stupid. Yeah, that's I can't believe what people are awful unless unless that was like the rules of the race were, there are no rules that says asking street racing last week vice. Yeah, anything goes as long as you win. Yeah, but you gotta talk about voice all the time. Hey, I bet man. Worst case that would be like really clever. Oh yeah. If there are no rules. Clever, it would be cool then be like, wow, how innovative. I think the most thing would be just like stick a tree branch and someone spokes in the wheel. That's true. No. Anything happened to you in New York City? Anything? Exciting. Just the way you asked that question because he's so intrigued. I mean, I went around, I caught up with some friends who live in New York, and you know. You know, how long were you in New York? Just a weekend. Just Friday. Saturday. Sunday didn't go to any sex shops or did you buy smoothie at the airport smirk on his way? I know I us. I on their us, we call them. It really wasn't kata. Keep asking him Monday and questions. Unlimited false spring. I stayed Hannie boobs. Does he boobs, maybe. Oh, that's way. See, that's a Monday in question, but I don't know. How many boobs did you see? I don't know. I don't know. You don't know. No, I mean, I know, but I'm not gonna count to like, tell Chris doesn't doesn't. What's it called? Kiss until. Maybe he's now? Yes. If I tell stories, I'll tell like stories like like in the in the past, your New York? Yeah. In the past from the like whenever it's like, oh yeah, there's just one time a while ago. This happened and ten to retain fresh. Yeah. Sesame get an year. Okay. I remember going down. Has five sixty one yet. Title it now, Christmas New York trip. It's not really that good. I don't. You're the one who built it up dude. I know she did. It's only cause less last week. I asked you anything happened in New York. No, nothing. Yeah, there's a face. Do you play poker Chris? I mean, not professionally. I don't know. What do you mean like so many. I feel like so many not have a poker face at all, or maybe that's like his trick. You think it's tell I'll play poker you play poker. So I have a friend who's like becoming a pro poker player. I think it's pretty fascinating. You told me that I should give it a try. I don't know. He made a lot of money. Not a lot of, but he's starting to get to a point where he's starting to make money this year. He changed careers. He stopped what he was doing cited. He wanted to give this a try just saying it's been. It's been interesting keeping up with that, like, I can't imagine going all in on a change like that. Yeah, he plays online a lot. He said, okay, that's his practice. And then he goes to casinos for big tournaments. Just seems like. There, I mean is just like it'd be a lot of people who say they win a lot of money, but they don't tell you about all the money they lose. You know what I mean? I'm professional poker player. They anti like, oh yeah, I just also lost twenty thousand. I think it's also like when people make content online, like you see the people who've really made it, or you see people who like stream or put out content consistently and there's, you know, there's a big gap. There's a lot of people who don't who don't make it don't ever really make money off of it. I remember when we were the first time went to Vegas first and only time was with you. Gus and Allen. And I got like addicted to play in cracks because you guys taught me how to do it, and it was just like the easiest game to play if you're playing it simply with pass line and whatever. There was a guy there. I ended up staying at a table for like a couple of hours, and there was a guy there who was just betting like ten thousand dollars at a time. Like what kind of lifestyle do you have? Like ten thousand dollars like I don't know if he was winning or losing or what? He's just like throwing money around like crazy for somebody went to hope with gusts to you. Uh-huh. That's a weird. I've been in Vegas with Gus twice and the first time you always with Gus, Gus and Joel and I and ester, a few other friends of theirs all went. They're nice. I think I think there was a story recently. You're talking about like the guy putting like ten thousand dollars at a time. I'm trying to find it here, but I think that there was a guy you're here. It is who was in. He was somewhere. He was at a casino four a poker tournament and it was between the the poker tournament. He was killing time getting a drink and playing video poker and he hit a Royal flush and wild like two hundred and fifty thousand dollars on a video poker machine. Wow, two hundred fifty thousand dollars. I think. So. You see, he says, here's his tweet. I was so pissed about busting in the ten thousand dollar tournament last night. I side to let off some steam. And here he is like with the Royal flush and like the machines just. Tax on that though, in the states? Correct. Oh no. You became two hundred thousand dollars after this. It was two hundred thousand two hundred fifty thousand dollars. I I saw this jackpot pay two hundred thousand dollars. I saw a guy hit a Royal flush wants at the Bellagio on a video poker machine was I was just standing next to the guy at a bar waiting to get a drink. And he just like clap twice. And he said, yes, and he called the bartender over and they look and the go, right? We got, we got a call security. They call security over and like they took. They took him aside and like security machine up to like start printing off logs, I guess to make sure he didn't fuck with the machine. Wow. So it happens it. I don't think it happens very often. Now go gamble away all your money. They think like if you, if you're gonna win that guy who want to us, I think you have to bet like twenty bucks a hand. You got to put some money in. I'm going to take a while back with my wedding. I'm really dying to go back. I haven't been back since we did a big group trip like three or four years ago. We were supposed to go on a group trip to Vegas, Jeff. Then we ended up doing one like a couple months later. I wasn't it before. I thought you went to win before that, or maybe it was the one before that maybe it was like we had a group and we're doing going another group trip. Yeah, I is one over like there's an RT about it where it's like like Heil lost his wallet and got really angry and, oh Alice, something Erin together. There's a big group of us. I don't think I was on. No, I was definitely out there. Those a fun trip. All right. It's been fun trips. Let's it's been a fun trip disrupt us one. Oh, what Arizona circle is coming out this week. Looking into the future. It's fun house weak front and it's house week. A livestream. So yeah mean Blaine are going to go out to LA and we're going to like a livestream funhouse. Couple of the things I want to circle has not been released yet. This will be the premier September nineteenth overseas. I. Yeah, that's awesome. Yeah, excited. Yeah, it's gonna be really fun. It's really good. I had nothing to do with it. I'm really proud of. Oh, yeah. Yeah, it's really, it's it's great. It's really fun. Can we well watch Arizona circle. And hopefully you had fun at our ticks London. Good. Bye.

Hello ochre. I've got good news and bad news. The bad news. I well. I tried to find the stairs and got a tad last. So I'm going to be a little late and the good the brains on taco farm legend is true. I think I just found it great. So when you do arrive, you're going to have tacos, right? I'm on it. You could count on me. Okay. Not just going to get started. Okay. See you soon. Hopefully. You're listening to brain Don from American public media. I'm Malia blue and my co host for this episode is a not from Minneapolis high. Not high not how do you generally get around? Do you ever use maps? Yeah. But usually like my mom just asked me to use her phone like on Google maps. Yes. Things like Google maps and GPS make it so that we don't really have to think too hard about where we're going. But even so compasses and cardinal directions are still really important. Today's episode was inspired by this question from Nathan my question is Howard cardinal directions. Made. So not do you know what cardinal directions are? Yeah. What are they they're like northeast southwest? Exactly. So those directions are used to talk about the way you're facing relocation of something like we just talked about like my car is driving west. My house is north of the river. But thanks to tools like our foe. Phones, and GPS navigation most of us don't need to think much about directions, but before GPS and even compasses which will talk about more in a bit. This idea of north south east and west was based on nature, and what people observed in the world around them, a not what things in the natural world. Can you see as being helpful for people trying to find their way around like the stars in the sun? Exactly. So the stars move in a predictable way through the night sky. And during the day another star, we just talked about the sun also moves across the sky, it always rises in the east and sets in the west. And there are also the wind's twelve. Hong Lee used for navigational. That's Darren Hayden a historian of science from Haverford university. And he says these twelve traditional winds align with the way that the compass is divided into north north northeast northeast east southeast southeast and so on it has a pretty name to it's called the wind rose. It's called a rose because those arrows shooting out from the center, and pointing all the different directions kind of look like a flower. So not when you look at a map which direction is up like which direction is at the top of the map north exactly north is up. And that's the way we think of the shape of countries like the shape of the United States that you're picturing in your head right now or Italy or your state that drawing has north at the top. But it's not like that's how you have to look at the world. It would really make just as much sense to have a map with south at the top or east until quite recently north wasn't up throughout the Latin middle ages east was up. And so world maps oriented ninety degrees from war comfortable with prior to that. Islamiya middle ages they tended to orient their mouths with south of the talk. It's not until the fifteenth century that we begin to get with some regularity north at the top of maps. So where did this switch come from? We've talked about the printing press in a few different episodes. And that's because it's invention in the fifteenth century was really important for spreading ideas around the world before that it took forever to print books because you had to do it all by hand. But the printing press allowed lots of copies of books books containing new ideas to be passed around. Went viral nice work Ptolemy long before the printing press was invented Greek astronomer Ptolemy wrote a book about mathematical geography, and even though it had been written over one thousand years ago. The ideas in it became all the rage with geographers in the fifteenth century. Genius. Never dies. It just becomes classic. My work is forever in style. Like togas? Those are still in right in Ptolemies geography north was at the top. This is almost certainly connected to his astronomy, which has the north star of the top the north stars perfect navigational anchor. A literal guiding light I'm into it. The cool thing about the north star. Is that unlike other stars, it doesn't seem to move. It's fixed in the sky over the North Pole. That's because it's in line with the earth access. That's the spot the earth spins around. So the star stays in pretty much the same spot in the night sky while other stars appear to make bigger arcs throughout the night navigators could simply find that star and know which way was north. And it's also around this time that the compass starts to be used as a navigational tool. Have you ever used a compass before? Yeah. Where does the needle on a compass point north, exactly? And that's another reason that more maps had north at the top compasses started to be used for navigation in China almost one thousand years ago, and they spread around the world over the next five hundred years, and they're still used today and judging by your questions a lot of you are using them to. Hello. My name is Joe Joe, I'm from Durham, North Carolina. And I am nine years old. My questions are side magnet that attracts challenge. Things. How compasses work and why the red arrow of compass attracted to the North Pole. Why does accomplish meal point nor how does it compass work? Hi, my question is what makes the needle compass? New. Thank you for answering. To help us answer these questions we've called up Sonia Tico. She studies planetary his at Rutgers University high Sonia. So I have this question like when you use a compass the needle always snore selected someone like a huge Maguen it up there that like the needles are attracted to. Needle inside the compass. Is it self like a little magnet, and it has a North Pole and south pole, and you probably learned about magnets in class. And you know, that two magnets can be attracted to each other where the North Pole of one magnet as attractive to the south pole of the other mind that so opposites attract. Basically the North Pole of the compass needle is attracted to the south pole of the earth's magnetic field. So the earth is actually kind of a big magnet. You just can't see the force because it's invisible. Okay. So does earth have make netted field kind of your not just kind of it has. I mean, it's not a strong as like a refrigerator magnet that you might have. But it's a pretty big bag that field, and it covers the entire planet. It's just invisible. So we can't see it is it like earth's core that has the magnetic field. That is correct. Yeah. Earth's magnetic field comes from its core right now where we're sitting. You're standing earn starting on the earth's crust. Okay. And underneath the crust is the mantle of the earth and underneath the mantle is the core. And do you know what the core is made out of? I don't know yet. It's actua-. Really made out of liquid molten metal. It's metal. That's so hot. That's melted. Into a liquid and that metal it moves around like a lava lamp have you seen a lava lamp before. Yeah. What happens is that hot metal rises from the bottom of the core. And then it goes all the way up to the top of the core where it cools down. And so then once it's cold, it's sinks back down to the bottom. So basically the metal is constantly moving. And it's the motion of this metal that generates the magnetic field. Got it another question. I have is what happens if you use a compass at the North Pole will the needle go crazy. Yeah. The needle will go totally crazy because when you're standing at the North Pole the direction of the earth's magnetic field is down towards your feet. And likewise, if you were at the south pole it would want to. Point up. That's weird. Can you tell us how that the earth being a giant magnet makes these like two polls? Yes. So with magnetic fields, you can never have just like a single point. It always has to have a polarity. It has to have a north and a south what organizes the earth's magnetic field into the structure that it has with the North Pole and the south pole is the rotation of the earth. So the rotation of the earth helps the fluid the liquid metal in the core. It helps it spin around in such a way that you generate a field that is just kind of straight up and down north south. So there's this magnetic pole at the top of the earth on its axis that the air the air on the compass points to but why don't like our refrigerator, magnets, go flying nor. Earth all the time. Your refrigerator magnet is like a hundred times stronger than the strength of the earth's magnetic field that we're sitting in right now the magnet is more attracted to the refrigerator because that's something that's much closer. And it all has to do with the differences and strengths. So then how does the compass work? How does it point north? Well, the compass is balanced on a pin in the center, and whenever you use the compass you tend to keep it away from other things that are magnetic that could attract it, so actually if you were to take the compass and put it near something else that's magnetic compass would point to that instead of towards north. Oh, so that's how compasses can lie. Yeah. Compasses can totally lie. What is a compass made out of it's made out of a mineral called magnetized. So magnate is. Is a mineral that's made out of iron and oxygen. The iron is what helps make it magnetic. And where exactly is the North Pole the north magnetic pole or the north geographic pole because they're actually not quite the same. Where is the north magnetic pole the north magnetic pole is located basically on an island in very very northern Canada called Ellesmere island and the north geographic pole is about. I think three hundred miles away, and it's in the middle of the Arctic Ocean. The magnetic pole moves constantly overtime, actually and attends to sort of move in circles to the west usually, and we call that westward drift of the magnetic pole, but actually kind of circles the north geographic pole overtime. So on average. You know, magnetic north is the same as true north. If you average over. Thousands of years. Thanks for being here today. Sonya you're welcome. It was a lot of fun by. I'm getting a little hungry. I mean worried that marks still not here. Yeah. I hope. He's okay. And the tacos are still warm goodbye. My lovely Ovar. I still have to find Molly. Don't worry. Your secret location is safe with me. But I'll be back. Okay. Let's see wait is this outside it kind of looks familiar. I think I used to have an apartment around here. Yep. There's the sherbert shack, which means the two left foot store. I knew it pro tip. They do not like you dancing in there. Now, I remember when I used to walk home, the son would sit over the shoe store. So that should be west. And since it's on my left side. I'm walking north which means the studios should be just over this hill. Oh, I see. See I can see. I never noticed that it kind of looks like a banana from this angle. With brands on before we navigate our way through the rest of this episode. It's time for a we detour to mystery sound town. He ready and not. Yeah. All right here. It is. K? What is your guests? It kind of sounds like a rain forest, and like rain, and then like that thing was like screaming kind of sounds like a monkey. There's definitely some birds in the background so nature going on a very shocking sound. I was not ready. All right. We're going to be back with the answer is just a bit. Do you ever mystery sound you want to share with us a question? You want answered on the show are maybe drying of Mark navigating his way through the taco farm. You can send them to us by going to brains on dot org slash contact. That's how we got this question. Hi, my name is Elliott, and I'm seven years old. My question is why are done to find. We're going to answer that during our moment of at the end of the show and keep listening to the very end of this episode to hear the latest listeners to be added to the brains on our stick around.

I've done both. It's fun and easy. And as you're coding skills grow. You can teach your ozo- bought to do more and more about pricing starts at just sixty dollars. So they make a great gift. They're small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Just the right size for kids ages six and up and get this. They are having a black Friday sale, but you have to go to this special site. Are you ready, okay? To ozo- dot Bhatt slash shop. For twenty five percent off your order. Quick math, sixty bucks at twenty five percents off that means you can have your own programmable robot for forty five dollars. Remember this site ozo-? Dot dot slash shop. That's osy oh dot the OT slash shop for a special twenty five percent off black Friday sale. You're listening to brains on from Merican public media. I'm not, and I'm Molly we've heard about how compasses work and how north became synonymous with up, but long before these developments came to pass Polynesian voyagers traveled, thousands of miles across the Pacific Ocean with no other navigational, tools except their senses. The who Khumalo is the voyaging director of the Polynesian voyaging society. And she navigates canoes many thousands of miles using these traditional techniques. And when you don't have a compass, you have to notice patterns in nature, and if you studied patterns while enough you come to have a library in your own mind of where the stars where the sun and the cell Joe bodies in planet moved because this guy and all about the wind waves on the water as well. As a lot about the nature of birds and peepers that can help you. Fine islands in the middle of the ocean. Polynesia and these islands are very tiny little island in the middle of very large large sections of ocean. A lot of the navigation is very specifically designed to work in the technical trying to isolate and locate a little island in between a lot of water. We do when we see the horizon around us on our canoe or me divide up the horizon inches thirty two different sections, and we call these sections houses, and you can think of a star as leaving a house when it rises in going back into it. When it that. And what you do when you're online, you're comparing wage is you look out into night sky, and you have a mental projection of houses lie on the rise in line, and you will rise where each of these stars rises, which tells you about where they're going to set. And where are they are on that compass that lines you up north south east, west whatever direction you plan to go? During the daytime allot of what you want to rely on is no longer up in the sky, necessarily, but down on the water and these things happen in patterns, whether it's how far apart the waves are so high. They are or what direction they're coming from. And as a navigator you're watching to see or they're coming from the north or the south or the or the west are they growing are they slowly getting smaller? What direction are they coming from as you compare them to the wind or are you comparing to the sun nizing occasion or the sunset location is the moon writing during that day? These are little things that you're going to pay attention to to try and find many can't hold the right course. So you'll never rely just on one side and the navigator you stay awake. Lots of hours. Sometimes all day, sometimes twenty hours twenty two hours a day constantly paying attention to these things because all of the tax of live in your mind and give you a picture of where you are. And where the weather wave and stars guiding you. There are more than one thousand Polynesian islands in the Pacific Ocean, including the Hawaiian islands and Samoa into Haiti and the different islands each have slightly different voyaging traditions, the who practices the traditions from Hawaii earlier this year like who navigated a canoe two thousand eight hundred miles from Hawaii descend Francisco the voyage took twenty three days. Before we get back to talking navigation. I wanna make a pitstop to introduce a special guest joy Dolo pillow. Joy Dolo is the host of our brand new kids history show forever ago. Yep. Every episode we explore the history of one cool thing like compasses exactly like that. But we'll have to save that for season two. This week's episode is all about skateboards awesome. Yeah. You to want to hear sneak peak. Sure. Okay. Here we go. Homemade skateboards were getting so popular that companies took notice and by the early sixties, you could buy skateboard in a store. One of the first ones available was the Woollard number ten a little red skateboard flat. It had no grip tape. The trucks were not adjustable the wheels were made out of metal. And it really wasn't very practical at all. And a lot of people got hurt using. But some kids got really good and did acrobatics on them some of them got so good that they can do a handstand on one of these skinny two foot long boards while it was rolling. That's crazy. We'll. Oh. I cannot wait to hear the rest of this episode nei-neither. Well, you don't have to wait too long forever. Go episodes come out every Thursday. And if you haven't already you should go check out our first to episodes. They're about cameras and video games. You can find forever ago on apple podcast or wherever you listen rate review in subscribed. All right. See you later. Bye five. We've talked all about the clever ways, we humans navigate the world. But we've got nothing on the animal kingdom. That's right birds. Turtles butterflies, bats. They make epic journeys without compasses like monarch butterflies they travel from all over the US and Canada to meet up on just a few mountaintops in Mexico or the bar tailed godwit the bird with the record for the longest nonstop migration ever over seven thousand miles without stopping or humpback whales. They navigate from Alaska to Hawaii with ease. Scientists are still trying to figure out how these creatures do it some think they may have a built in sense of direction kind of like a biological compass. It lets them know north and south by instinct, other researchers think animals might get cues from sunlight or even the stars whatever they use it's or came and with all that travel. I bet these beasts note the best. Roadside pitstops. Welcomes across track. Cafe home of the mighty migration combo meal. Hi, I have a reservation under care of the porcupine caribou herd. Yes. Here's how many in your party. Let's see one two three four two hundred eighteen thousand rate. Let me just clear table embassy you shortly. Thanks, pal. Down there. Cool weighing one nice thing about being a monarchy. Everyone notices the wings, which is great because they never noticed embarrassing ankle Fatou. Oh now, I see it. It's a drawing of a human that says peas. Yeah. Got it on spring break only, Caterpillar once, you know, not really, but sure Where're you headed just doing our yearly road trip through Canada to our timeshare buy beautiful Beaufort sea never heard of it all it's wild. It's the Daytona Beach of northern Alaska if you know what I mean going there is sort of a porcupine caribou family tradition. It's a fifteen hundred mile trek. But so worth it. Nice. I'm on the open road myself about the bust outta here wing it to Mexico. So we'd you've been there before never. But every other monarch, I know goes they're like millions of us. So I figure must be pretty nice. I'm stopping here to fill up on milkweed because it's three thousand miles to the mountains of central Mexico. Wow. Yeah. I probably won't even make it back. But my kids are. Maybe my grandkids will. Bartend three shots of words. Pro. Who's that the bar tailed godwit the ultimate migrated? I've heard it. Fly seven thousand miles every year from Alaska to New Zealand, non stop it just keeps flying for like nine days over nothing but open water. I think it goes a little stir crazy on the trip said that. Oh, it's you. My imaginary best friend, Trish, the flying elephant that keeps me company on my migration. Sore Trish, you can eat all the peanuts at the bar bartender. Get this polka-dotted elephants. Pena toe? Hello. Welcome to crosscheck. Cafe. Whoa. Whoa. Are you a human? Yeah. Are you talking snake? Yeah. Can I help you? Yeah. Wow. This place is like a zoo. Look, I'm lost. I'm trying to get to city hall. Do you know two blocks north take a left? It's a big building facing south. Thanks bye. I guess. Where's that he hall? It's like two blocks away. What do you need a map Pell? Yeah. Who gets lost? You're only going to blocks who are human helpless about their GP S's in compass thingies. I mean, navigating the world without a map is so easy. The secret is just caribou herd. Your table is ready. I don't need to tell you the super obvious answer to how animals know their way around vast distances instinctually, you already know have a good dinner. Thanks, fun in Mexico, watch out for spiders. All right or not. Hey, we'll look at this. We've traveled through almost entire episode and found our way back to the mystery sound here. It is one more time. Okay. Any new guesses after hearing it again. Well, like, I'm still stuck with rainforest except the sound that I think is supposed to be like rain. It sounds kind of glitch. You like, oh, that's interesting observation. What do you think that like screeching down last time? We said it was a monkey did. He I don't know. I think it's some sort of creature that yells some very angry creature. Well, here is the answer. But was a monk Jack DEA giving an along. Yeah. That's natural navigator tristen Guli. He spends most of his days building, mental maps out of observations. He finds the environments all over the world. Sometimes that includes animal noises onnell's I've away of owning onnell's of the same species that danger in the area on these are known as long coils quite a few animals have led to use all the species along cools as well. So in the case of a day of giving it along coolest telling us that is spotted something in his surroundings. Now that something might be off twin pretty sure it's not us. We're not the ones that has surprised today. I made it give cool. Then it's telling us that something will someone else is out that. There is a whole map of edible from sound. Being navigates at ease making use of things that mice people don't shoot into the wind is really really important that everybody knows that the wind when his trees, we are rustling sound in the leaves. We had different things depending way we all you hit different things in the middle of would work. You standing in come treats. But as you get towards the edge of would the sound changes following the path of the sun is one way to navigate, but Tristan uses it in another way won't more interesting from Mycenae what he's the way to sung leaves footprints on the landscape, so shapes everything around us, it shapes trees trees, a bigger on this something solid in the northern hemisphere. Shakes the branches an even leaves the leaves on the south side of trees small because of the song. We've talked quite a bit about navigating uninhabited places like the ocean or the forest, but there are clues in urban environments to. Trawling on the story of Wyatt town recipients wear. It is quite often move find that they were built up because that's where the water is will tend to be the lowest point of town suddenly realized that was streets have a slight gradient. And if you're looking up here looking away from the trophy, slam downhill tools, what we might find the townies, it's violent. It's the only route which we high ground, and then suddenly understand way will the streets relying the why they all. And then we go into a much more detailed clues TV satellite dishes. They have two point two satellites alright with your quotes in the northern hemisphere. TV's dishes will be pointed in a southerly direction, depending which satellite points out. We'll tell you exactly which direction where I live at point south east on the poster, well, it might be south west. But once he spots dot trend is amazing outliving will ever big city checkout, natural navigator dot com for more helpful navigate. Nation. Tips tristen suggest a fund natural navigation game without checking a map or GPS try to guess which way you're looking. Remember us clues from your environment to help figure out the answer. You can check your answers on a phone or compass. Okay. Not. I am fishery worried that more still isn't here. I know. Should we call somebody? Hey, did I make is this still the Cardo directions? Episode what happened to you? Well, there was this taco farm, then I found my old apartment, and then the sherbert shack, and did you know from the southeast our studio looks like a banana anyway here are your tacos Ninke, Mark, yum. Did I miss the taping almost all of it? But you're in time to hear the cardinal direction. Song you mean, the one can cook. Yeah. It's so good. It's like it's like the hot sauce to my taco hit it. You don't know which way to go Elul right direction. Just so go based on that. Oh, okay. Still way. Russia. Will always point north magnetic field. To go back. Now the deal. Oh. Still west. No direction. Burleigh mass where first drawn and Babylon in Greece it fluids seeing ways to day Wayne Leggate with these. Cased in west. Notoriety move. Gain that confused by the symbols. Visit legend and the corner begging every simple thin south. East to west. No direction. That was Kaneko cook. In her cardinal directions on checkout Kaneko cook dot com to hear more of her amazing music. The cardinal directions have their origins in nature the win the stars. And our biggest star the sun earth's. Magnetic field is formed by molten lava at its core. North wasn't always up on the map. But Ptolemy encompasses help make it that way using a compass when there are other magnets near bike could give you a false reading, and humans are the only ones who can navigate long distances many kinds of animals travel far, but we're still not quite sure how they manage to do it. That's it for this episode of brains on Breen's on his produced by Mark Sanchez Sandon Totten in Molly bloom, we had production help from Nedley striker and trust bursting and engineering help from Craig's triple in John Miller.

You can't support brains on today by heading to brains on dot org slash donate. Now before we go. It's time for a moment of. My question is why are done so hard to find. My name is Mark Hershman of geologist on the professor here at the university of Minnesota. My research involves the materials and rocks and minerals that exists deep in the earth diamonds, they're they're made of carbon everything plants and animals and things everything living has carbon in it. So it's a very common material on the surface, but diamonds require more than just the presence of carbon. They require very high pressures. They require pressures in excess of what occurs deepen the earth more than about one hundred miles. The thing that makes diamonds rare is all the carbon is common on the surface. It's very scarce at death. The common materials in the deep in the earth are not carbon rich, they're rich and other things magnesium iron silicon and so on. And so the first reason why diamonds are rare is because there's not a lot of carbon in the place where the pressures are high enough to make the form of carbon. That is in the diamond. Structure the diamond structure requires high pressure formation. The second reason is that even if they form down there. It's not so easy to get them to the surface. We certainly can't mind to that depth. We can't drill to that. We have to wait for geologic processes to bring them to the surface. So we need very unusual volcanoes known as kimberlites that bring material very suddenly from great depth to the surface, very rapid. And when kimberlite volcanoes erupt they bring diamonds to the surface. These names are shining bright. It's time for the brains on a roll. This is the way that we think the amazing listeners who send us their ideas questions mystery sounds and drawings.
