"fred flintstone" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"So one of the things that people seem to do, and this was like, when they were in fashion, when cursed tablets were in fashion, everybody was into them. But it seems like one of the things that you would do is curse your rivals, sometimes your rival in politics, your rival and business, I think some people cursed the rival chariot teams to their favorite teams, which is neighbors. Really long headed, but it just goes to show people who have been lung headed for thousands of years, right? There's always been locks. Yeah, your neighbors, especially if you have some sort of dispute, anyone who takes you to court, and then also people who are romantic rivals to somebody you like. I saw one that basically said, I think Helen be bound when she tries to flirt with her, have sex with, you know, the dude that I like, whatever his name was, I don't remember. And that basically she was saying like, please gods intervene and keep her from being able to perform in the sack with aristophanes, let's say. Yeah. Who I'm never a man. Or romulus, by the way, smells bad and has a small peepee. Yeah, but the whole thing was the whole thing was that you were basically calling upon the gods you're invoking the gods to do something bad to this person that you did not like. Yeah, and so as you would imagine, if you had a lot of money, you were probably more educated, you could probably spell and write these things yourself. But if you were wealthy, you probably paid someone to do it, maybe beautifully. But like you said, all stripes did it. So if you didn't have a lot of money, that may have been one on a shard of clay. And you would go to, you may not be able to read or write. So you would go to a magician and these magician house described in this house of works article were like contract attorneys. And they would kind of give you a template. And have blanks. And say, fill in the blanks with like, who's your grievance? What's his name? And what was the grievance? And then they would sort of fill this thing in. Fred flintstone style. And apparently there were times even where they found some examples of these where the name or the grievance was so long that they had to kind of squish it in and these template forms, which is really funny if you think about it. Yeah, and also it sounds like an ancient mad lib, but magic mad lib basically. Yeah. Exactly. So these things got so popular. And so widespread that in some of the curse tablets, they'll find like clauses that say, and if the other person finds out that I've cursed them and they try to reverse curse me, then I am rubber in their glue and that case. And they're cursed will bounce off of me and stick to them instead. Right, and they would say, what is rubber? I mean, let's just step back for a second chuck or essentially talking about the same thing. A curse tablet and saying, I'm rubber and you're glue is basically the same thing. I just think we should point that out. Yeah, and it's funny. I do need to poke a little fun at this article because I didn't include it for your, I should have included it so you could have a laugh here. Deleted it. At the end, it was talking about where these things kind of when they fell out of popularity. And it's like, well, some argue that even though they don't do it anymore, our society is still very much like this. And just take a look at Twitter. The sort of modern version of a curse. They got a laugh. Yeah. Yeah, I guess I kinda, yeah. Yeah. I think they were cursing Twitter just then. Another thing too, is there was a person interviewed that said that they were like a magical arms race because there'd be curses, counter curses, amulets, like the evil eye, you know, or the eye of Osiris maybe, the very famous amulet or symbol. That was worn to ward off curses. Like I think that was the rubber that you would wear so that the curses would bounce off of you. Oh, like I'm looking at you, buddy. Basically. And then that's it. Chris tablets gone. For the better. Short stuff. Out. Stuff you should know is a production of iHeartRadio.

And I remember, this is when I was older, I was working at HP at a Dodge dart and the brake cylinder leaked, and one time it went out, and this is when I was in my 20s. And instinctually, I panicked, I hit the brake at the red light, and it was sailing through it, no lie. I opened the door and put my foot out. Luckily, it didn't catch, but it caught it clipped my foot out and my brain because I was so used to my three Wheeler, where four wheelers and motorbikes where you could put a foot out, you could ditch it and my brain panicked and went into ancient exercise mode and put my foot out. I could have shattered my femur. And it was when I got done, even my brain was like, why would you ever logically, I knew that was like, that makes no sense. It's 3000 pounds. But that reflex path.

I follow a suburb where it's like all fighting, like people fight street fights and stuff like that. And it's usually the kids in high schools. Oh, for sure. Where they just do it. I saw it when someone like just slams that on the floor and then starts fucking seizing and stuff. And you're like, okay, this guy's gonna be fucked for the rest of his life. I have no issue with that because even when I was a kid and I was playing like, I'm trying to think of what it would have been at that point. It would have been like a Street Fighter, obviously that's fake. But it's like, I never thought a game was real. Never once. There was never once a time where I was like, oh, you know, maybe if I tried this. Yeah. Even like N 64 when they first started having like polygonal wrestling and you saw the characters looking more 3D and stuff, I never, you know, we would play on mats on wrestling mats or big thick, the pole vault mats.

If there is gonna be zombie apocalypse that viruses then come out of some bowling alley somewhere and some place you never heard of. So that's off limits during the pandemic. And i don't know when bowling gonna come back and when i'm going to be safe obviously be after vaccination. Bowling is something. I wanna do and yeah just like the dude. I wanna drink white russians and sit the bowling alley and call newburgh. Take me home. Because i'm gonna have a lotta white prussians. Pretend like the dude. I look forward to doing that. When the pandemic is behind us they just recently not that long ago built a top golf complex out here by ask but we live what their time or two and enjoyed it a lot. It's a great group thing to do. Now you're on a kind of tight spot. You're you are outside but you still a pretty tight spot. So i know that it's open but i don't feel doing top off right now that i look forward to something come after the pandemic after vaccinations. I'm going to top golf. Haven't been gone amass as much as i should and maybe You have to answer this for yourself on the church as much as you should have the pandemic. it's serious. I mean the protocols and restrictions put on a church attendance by the archdiocese. We've been pretty Demonstrative so they may been having massive and having church. It's just not the same thing. I've gone a few times. Mostly when i go is at work where it's easy. Go at school going there. My local parish going to church does something. And i missed dylan and then a year since i've gone fairly regularly virtual mask virtual church services. Just not the same thing that my mind to actually physically be there pugh apart the actively involved in the service. So that's something that. I look forward to doing as soon as possible flying again in airplanes. Yeah every time you go somewhere and you have to drive. It just adds a lot more time to your trip and sometimes trip knees short. He's gotta go somewhere. do something. come back. Flying doesn't really seem that safe now. It's probably safer in terms of environmental conditions that it's ever been because airlines of taking such great pains to make sure everything's cleaned and sanitized putting a bunch of people and a plain little tin can like that really makes me nervous yet. One person with code can't see how everybody doesn't have it at a time. We land never been on a cruise. My wife always likes to cruise. Our daughter or youngest daughter went on a cruise. For sam's kayce school senior year spring break. They did a cruise and they really enjoyed it. She's always asking about going on cruises okay. I'll be ready post pandemic i'll entertain the idea of going on a cruise. Really all look forward to it. I don't like being surrounded or trapped in a structure with that many people. I just don't like that. I want to see different things. Different people have different experiences. And i can't imagine being stuck on. A boat provides level of action that i require. They tell me it does shot. Never thing around here. That i've never done i'm gonna do it post pandemic it's called sky zone and as i understand it it's just a bunch of trampolines and jump around old people. Just don't do this old guy is going to. I'm going to go to sky zone and make an idiot out of myself jumping around and just having fun like i was a little kid again. Rock climbing parks stuff like that being being young again. I miss sporting events right now. We're in hockey season. The soon as this is behind us. I wanna go to a hockey game baseball. Great too.

"80 88 10 is the telephone number 808 oa 10. Let's go to Carl. He's in Los Gatos. Karl. Hi. Welcome to K G O neg, stat. Sure. You know, this country has always known right wrong. You take a little while sometimes keep you get it, But right now it's not about the false equivocation that were divided. We have a litmus test right now to the nut balls, and it's it's the covert virus because the Koven virus is very bipartisan and doesn't care who you are. It is text everybody, but isn't it weird? How Just the one political party seems to be infested with the non believers and not really angry because now it wasn't their religion that would affect me, but their behavior based on what they believe affect my health. That's a real problem, and the media is to blame for that, because they don't call out Dividing this. They say that, um, you know, just about America being invited when they should say it's wrong to not believe in science. It's wrong and we don't hear that enough in the media. And like every generation the adults in the room that they're going to pick up and progress forward and we'll leave them behind and day by day minute by minute we become or progressive and more unless racist, you know is the older ones die out and new people have more and we'll get to our goal. But you just have to let them know that it's not about coming together. It's about right and wrong, and they're wrong, and it was worth five million more people. Then then the wrong you know, in terms of the majority. You know we're doing okay. You know what? I'm so glad you put it that way, because that is what it feels like. It feels like you know, it's this. There's right and there's wrong. And once we acknowledge what's wrong If we can agree upon that, then there's a lot of places that we can go where we can compromise where we can deal together and figure out the best way to solve the nation's problems. I would say, though, that I do disagree with you that the media while far from perfect that the media has not called out those people who have rejected to science. I mean, they do it on a daily basis on the you know the media that I read and the media that I watch. They do it on a daily basis where they actually have scientists who speak about truth and who speak about facts, and they call out those people who are relying on whatever it is. They're relying on, but it isn't factual and isn't it? And scientifically based, So I'm going to push back But with you on that I do think that they are attempting to do that. Unfortunately, the media that is providing the truth providing the facts providing the science and the scientists that media has been vilified by the president. They have been called the enemy of the people. And so the people who are followers of President Trump They only believe him, and they will not even check in with that media That's trying to give them the factual information. They have blinded themselves. They have, you know, Put earmuffs on. They will not hear the truth. And if they will not hear the truth, How do you reach them? How do you reach them? Fox has abandoned the truth. I mean, they have a couple of people who do it. But not that many on Ben. I mean, they have the people who are simply echoing Donald Trump. Like, well, he's gone now, Um, you know, Mr Finance guy, and, uh, Fred Flintstone guy. Sean Hannity. He does look like Fred Flintstone and I like Fred Flintstone, So don't think I'm insulting him. That's just how I remember him. All right, let's take a break. We'll be back and we'll get more of your telephone calls. We are at the top of the hour. We are going to switch topics we are going to start talking about if it's time for schools to open and what the hell has happened to Americans that they're attacking one another for having different opinions on this? We're gonna be doing that in the next hour, and that is one of the areas where we may be able to find some common ground if we just stop the hate I'll be.

You know it's high to ceilings and where stuff being run and what's exposing that explains. Why is it important to a heating and air conditioning company first in 1991. That's when they start making changes to the efficiencies. So most of the furnaces we see are drastically oversized, so you can't We have to go to each house measure it, make sure it's size properly oversized or understand their oversight oversight, So that's when he asked, and I dropped down. 21 20. Probably he can. Why would they? Why would it be oversized Because there was 100 40,000 beats you standing pilot 50% efficient furnace in there. Untrained heating guy. We're going up. You got 140,000 have to go back with that. But now it's an 80% efficient. So you go lower, right? Yeah. So you can drop down you could drop down to a lower unit doesn't have to run as much won't cost you as much to operate. Do all duck work Does all duck work? Leak After a certain period of time. It leaks from the minute it's put in. Okay, Okay. If you look in your basement, you look each joint you'll see like a swirl of dust on a supply in return ductwork. So the farther it is away, and they use the analogy of a soaker hose. It's hooked up. There's no pressure at the end of that hose. By the time you get to the end That's what happened. There's a lot of homes that a second floor bedroom in the Northwest corner. It's cold. Hello. It was really cold every time and we arrows seal it, and they've got air coming out now. It's warm. We actually have one complaint on a second floor. Master bedroom. The homeowner called. He said that you save a complaint. So what's that? Because they have so much air coming out of the vent Now might not might my shade on my windows going. Tick, tick, tick tick so hard, Yeah. Like you poured exactly. You could save a lot of money with the duck ceiling. What is the process called the Arrow's Arrow seal. It's like if you picture like, fix a flat Okay. WeII plug all the openings with a heavy foam rubber plug. We took a computer up to the duct system. It tells us exactly how much leakage you have. So and then we start pumping a solution into the ductwork. Best compared to be like hairspray and bubble gum. That goes to the opening builds on itself and plugs the hole. A little plug a hole 37 inch. Across. Is there any type of concerns Because a lot of our listeners have kids who have allergies and health concerns. Is there anything in that product in that process during the process? That's going to impact the health of anybody in the house and have some type of immune challenge We recommend if you have, you know, like Azman, that if you can, if you can leave the house would be great. Okay. Nothing gets into the house. It's all plugged. It stays in the duct work. It just comes out where the holes are. And that's where you can. You can see we did lose house. And it was amazing how much leakage you find when you hook up the computer. Did you get a question? So three ace you mentioned right? That's pretty big. Is that the largest gap you'd probably find on a duct, or have you ever ran into like a half inch or three quarters run into a six inch round? Not connected. Lord, you can't heroes feel that you can't heal Celia and see what's cool about it is that the Ducks run up through the through the walls. You have no way of sealing that way to get at it. And as you pull the drywall wood, nobody's gonna be Oh exam, So it does make a big difference. We clean the duct work first, and then seal it. It's got a 10 year warranty on it. It's It's not gonna You never have to have it redone. So, so it's a 10 year, So every 10 years you might have to have a re done. We haven't yet had to redo one yet, and what's the investment? Something like that? That's 2024 94 for a clean and seal. Because they're 95th anniversary. We're knocking off $95.2494 dollars, So it's 23 99.

They're teasing us with a little bit of retirement strategy that is coach Pete Derrota, bestselling author Fiduciary planner heading into 29 years. In the financial arena. Welcome in See it right around the corner. I love it. I love you Got me there with strategy. You know, when I was a kid I used to love you guys know the game. Strategic 00? Yeah. I used to love to to go by the way Strategic. Oh, is the game I I enjoyed that a lot. So Yeah, let's what was your favorite part of playing. Strategic go well, when the when my opponent would hit the bomb, Of course. Remember that doesn't hit the bombing and boom, huh? Protect the flag right? Protected by what we look There's a bomb out of it just to to go back in the day. This was back in the seventies and eighties did not have sound E don't know if the new ones do. They don't get the bombs blow like that. I like that. We would be crater in the board have to buy another one. Right? There you go. There you go. Now Talk to me about bombs. So we were talking about financial retirement strategy. You've been doing this forever. What are some bombs that you see people running into? Well, I think it's just taking too much risk with money. They can't afford to lose and You guys know what I mean? Tuck you You've talked We talked about NHL players used to talk to who had all the money in the stock market, and they were like they should've retired last year. They're still still trying to get one more contract or one more year on their contract. We've seen that too. Among a lot of mistakes. They made like giving power of attorney to their agents, which is another issue. Big bomb, You know, we talk about financial termites, a lot and unidentified financial optics, UFO's and those air, other bombs and a portfolio because if you have something eating away At the money you're trying to build up not only do not have the growth you need that year. But the money you would have had in your account that somebody took out in fees. Expenses. Commissions is not in your account to build interest. So think about the long term effects of not having a clear grasp of were all your money is going well, But when I say, Where's your money going, People say what's in the markets over here? It's at the bank. They don't know so well. What about the other money? What do you mean the other one? The money that's being diverted from your account to somebody else's count again. Financial termites. Chuck. We see too much of this siphoned off and terrible. I mean, you know the thing I look at us some of your paraphernalia talks about 1% 2% 3% fees and how it adds up over time. It's incredible. It is. When you hear a lot of people out there bragging about maybe a percent they got on their return and a certain securities product or stock or whatever it may be. I wonder coach How many people do you think you're actually aware of how many fees are in their plan? When someone talks about the return? Morgan, I say is that a gross return or a net return? They would. It looks pretty good, and they don't well, gross means before commissions come out or expenses or taxation. Net is, after all, the bad stuff happens. What's left for you and then your net is gross. Yeah, well, we want to be as close to the full amount as possible, and that's what a lot of people don't realize We brag about a returns. And I said, Well, what's coming out after that, Or how much you paying your broker to do that or how much have you paid? You don't even know financial termites and Financial termites or what Eat people's portfolios weighed more than anything, and it really makes people mad when they find out how much they could've had matter. Fact we have that worksheet in our 41 case Survival box set. I'm also putting a advanced version of that in my new book, the book on Retirement that I am Almost done with man. In fact, the first three topics we were that with the topics we're gonna talk about here on the show today are all chapters in my book. Okay, Retirement reading this very, very important to be ready for retirement. What does that mean? It doesn't mean you bought new golf clubs and sitting in the corner looking really watching the clock watching watching. Take down to five o'clock the last day like Fred Flintstone down that dinosaur, right? No, it means making sure that your portfolio is gonna be waiting for you with open arms when you get there. And make sure you can live on the income that you have to put aside and make sure you have income to begin with. Chuck. I talked a lot of people. You have big balances. In therefore, one case they say that I'm a millionaire. I've got over a million dollars in my 41 k. I'm ready to retire as well. How are you ready to retire? We don't know what kind of income you could get from that yet. What kind of income you plan on getting our need?

Making over a 1963 Cadillac
"I found the nineteen sixty three cadillac in a driveway. And I wrote to the owners of the House because my in my county you could find anybody's name address to anybody for any property. I never saw this property before. I don't know why I never drew down this road and my friend said hey is a really cool cadillac. You'd be into it so I looked at it and it's a four door fleetwood and I really thought it would be cool to convert in whatever. Anyway it's been sitting in the same spot for forty years so I wrote the people and in the meantime I'm looking I haven't heard from them and they never wrote back. But in the meantime I'm always looking on facebook market for that kind of car like a car that looks rusty and really screwed up just like that. It's like perfect. The bodies like perfectly aligned. It's not crunched routed through to sue and so in a in an impulse. I saw this Cadillac. That just had just gotten posted. It was a seven sixty seven. Eldorado of sixty seven convertible sixty seven Cadillac convertible and so. I just texted the guy in through facebook market. And we wrote back and forth and as we take pay pal like y'all take some in pay pal if you pay me a little bit so I paid fifteen hundred dollars. He delivered it so because I was talking about that other car. Got Me curious to just keep looking looking looking for that type of texture on a car and when I saw this it was a really fast so it showed up in everybody's asking me always that the call from the front yard of the House nearby. It's not I just saw it in so now the car from the House nearby. I don't need that anymore. The satisfies that itch. Okay David how long do you think it will be before he gets out of the written back to? Oh you're muted David. I can't hear you haven't that killed my joke. I said when we record the next podcast. So it's a sixty seven Cadillac Eldorado. Keep saying it's called the Deville sixty seven cadillac convertible and it's it is like people say how bad is it? I'm like it's probably about. It's probably about three weeks away from being completely gone it runs drives has no breaks every time. I try to stop ahead of give myself like twenty feet to coast to a stop and it The floorboards are completely routed yesterday. Me AND MY BUDDY RYAN. We ripped the whole interior out would cut the seat out. You know it's it's basically a convertible that was probably left open twenty percent of its life to the rain so the interior seats are all moldy. And it's been stored for really long time. The Guy got it from has no paperwork heat and really tell me much about it. I think he's like a recovery guy who just like to close at warehouses and soften. He says he got it recently and he just put it up for sale. He says he got he got it running. He claims he put the carburetor on it. He said it was in a warehouse. He took it home. There was no carburetor on it. He found a carburetor and a junkyard. Put It on. It played with a for a couple of hours got it started and put it on facebook marketplace. And that's how I got so it's definitely has not gotten any attention this mice nestle over which I got most of them blown out and What WHAT'S THE PLAN. Are you going to restore to original condition or are you going to modify the whole worms? I just wanted something to creatively experiment with and Okay and So I'm going to basically make like a rat rod ahead a couple of teams tales like. Oh we're going to get it perfect again like no no that would take. That would take a lot. It's like Fred Flintstone Style. Like just kick the ground as you're the body lines straight. That's what I liked about the body lines straight so it's like a good. Both the frame seemed straight and Somebody played with the brakes breaks. Hopefully that just needed just because there's a lot of brand new brake parts. There look like they haven't gotten rusty so this if you look through a couple of shiny parts in the car that somebody like me that'll ambitious and then gave up on it again and So the wiring zoll horrible. It's going to be a nightmare like Patrick's GonNa help move the wiring. I said he goes while we gotTA figure I go look if we could just put like a row of switches on the dashboard. That say you know left? Lincoln right link of the region his that would be easy if we just do that instead of China. So it's just a big experiment to play with and it like I said because it runs I can get in and started. It doesn't sound very healthy but it runs and that's figured half the half the battle so yeah yeah just the fact that you can get it to turn over. I mean that means you're you know you're further along than if it didn't turn over there would be quite a few reasons why it wouldn't move you know and that would take a lot to get so it's really you can at least attack at a time and a funny thing was is. I went on I I I got one on Ebay to buy like all the emblems and stuff for it and then I did buy two emblems for about sixty bucks and one of the blinkers in a said before by anymore. Spend any more money on this hunk of crap. Let me look in the trunk. And so the next day I look in the trunk in every single piece of trim was in the trunk so somebody got an ambitious thinking they were GonNa fix it a pain and and so it has everything even the headlight which is missing in the pictures. Has Everything So I'll just fiddle with it and learn about hydraulic roofs. Semite put my own. Convertible has no the convertible scissor top? It's called the scissor roof. It's all there it doesn't have the hydraulic motor. Which I gotTA figure out how to modify figure out but It doesn't have any canvas on the top so I'm going to get creative and try and figure out something interesting. Like an all tarp simply. Well I was GONNA say like I mean you already had the Fred Flintstone floor in on Fred Flintstone car. It had like bamboo that went up and then forward. And then there's like a piece of canvas that came over and it didn't convert all the back for like a rear window air. We'll go through. It'll probably be fine. Continue that Motif. Yeah so I mean that's just my opinion but I'm just having fun with it and it just reminded me of being a teenager and like figuring things out. I mean that's how I learned a lot so many mechanical things early on is like just wrenching on old cars and I was a kid out drag home any hundred piece of crap and start taking it apart and figuring out how to get started. So that's just my little. I wonder if a little kid me again. I
The Labor Day Survival Guide & Beyond Episode
"Today's episode is all about labor day survival and beyond right beyond bed bath and beyond this beyond so this is the beyond section twenty percent off no exit serious it is i mean i'm just full disclosure. We don't want this episode to dislike die after monday <music> so we have to fill it with compelling things for the rest of the week right. We're not dumb. No nope <hes> okay well. We've got a lot. I mean the beyond is really exciting exciting actually in a little bit nerve wracking. I'm a little nervous about this so let's just jump right in. I'm jumping into breaking news today mike. I'm stepping on your toes. I have nothing anyways. Thank goodness okay so remember a few weeks ago on the podcast. We did a costco hall yeah and one of the products we featured. Was this tremendous meet stick and like we were joking about it but we said we were going to send it to the lab. Well we send to the lab abc noboru. We all know literally on the edge okay so this is the deal just to give a refresher. Let's talk about <hes> the actual meat stick the name jamie. Do you have any stats on the name where it's from. I believe it's green ridge farms okay green ridge farms farm natural crianlarich farms natural so this is not a cosco product but it's a product. That's distributed cosco and the stick itself. Let's look at it. We have one here okay. It's much fatter than most meat sticks. We've we've will feature a picturing on the high cascades large. It is almost like a fred flintstone brontosaurus burger situation whatever it is funny. It's officially called the beef snack stick. That is the largest snack well. The reason why we were like fourteen inches. I measured it but the reason why we were confused because it it was supposed to have a hundred and ten calories so this whole stick is supposed to have one hundred and ten calories and six grams of fat so we sent it to the lab and the results. They're upsetting but i wanna preface this by saying one thing. We don't send everything to the lab. Nope we love the lab. The lab is really interesting. We just can't test every every product however if i try something that i personally eat a lot and i think it's too good to be true. I will often invest the money. Just send my credit card and say test this and tell tell us what we're getting into and we've done this a lot over the past few years
