"Oh seven and it now it is time to talk about something so odd so strange that when I first moved to Kentucky I heard about this thing called fancy farm I thought to myself how that's odd why would they do that true it's true and now fancy form is made it into the news and this really in the grand scheme of things it's just more political nonsense and garbage but it's interesting because I can give you a little context first of all it really sort of underlines how challenging it can be to translate things into a different space when people don't understand them there there are some really cool things that I got to participate in when I was in Louisville for three years one of them is the crusade for children I've talked about crusade for children before because it's such an impressive community based thing that only happens in Louisville Kentucky can I don't think you can ever happen again anywhere else it's literally a day long telephone to raise money for children and it's not just that day though this weeks before people collecting change is just remarkable the farm is one of those things it also happens in Kentucky it happens in beautiful Mayfield Kentucky in graves county Kentucky way west in western Kentucky it happens as it's the Saint Jerome church picnic and it has been a political event since its inception in eighteen eighty one and every politician is expected to appear at fancy farm to the extent it is a bigger news story when someone doesn't appear at fancy farm then when they do appear at fancy form outsiders by the way call it at the feet the fancy farm picnic nobody calls it the picnic and they just call it transceiver so this year we have to understand the underlying current about fancy Fuhrman I mention this a little while ago the whole purpose of this appears to be politician show up they take to the stage they start to give a speech opponents of the heirs stand there with noise makers waving signs of good Mitch McConnell was speaking this year they were holding up signs that Moscow Mitch you know or when governor Matt Bevin was speaking also Republican they were holding up signs a bad and wrong for Kentucky and they did make a really funny a guy on a stick they they put his face on lord far gone from Shrek which is really funny but it's very very insulting that's really the only way you can put it in that's kind of the purpose of the whole event which is why I never made the trip I just don't want to know is if a five hour drive from Louisville and you had to stay overnight and it was just a bunch of people insulting each other I could go back to watching the real housewives if I wanted to do that but this year at the picnic on Saturday there was a cardboard cutout of Alexandra Castiel Cortez and a group of young man high school students they look I'd say high school I think there are high school they are surrounded there around this cardboard cutout of Alexandria costume Cortez I want guys like fake choking the cardboard cut out when guys like giving a big thumbs down you know they're just do an idiotic things that in the context of fancy farm go perfectly but outside that setting an outside that understanding they're horrible and they look like they're in very bad taste right so this is what happens when stuff goes up on Instagram and all of a sudden it becomes a thing I now Alexander because you Cortez like because they're all wearing teammate shirts Mitch McConnell and of course Alexander because he's gorgeous you can tell your people choking and sexually assaulting I'm like a cardboard cut out of you in a and the sexual assault by the way was I saw the picture it's teenage boys being idiot teenage boys and it's a fancy farm and I'm not making excuses I'm not saying boys will be boys but you have to put it in the context of where it happened so the boys were to come out apologize of course everybody's apologized everybody sorry I was just like this little weird local tradition is they'll become a national news story because social media and the lack of context you you just don't you have to understand that but it's just another stupid that political thing the kids ginned up into something that doesn't need to be in the meantime we're deficit spending out the Wazoo we're gonna spend ourselves into oblivion it we're gonna argue about pretending joke a cardboard cut out well what they felt hi Ron this is why I got so I get cranky today just reading the stories like all come on and by the way Kentucky steps in it by itself often like Kentucky just does things sometimes and you're like oh come on Commonwealth get together this is one of those things because outside of fancy farm you know what what I understand why you would do that I never understood so explain to me the first year I was there and like what they do what why it when I asked why do you know what the answer was well that that's what they always do that's that's why they do it that surely Jackson yeah the lottery it's that because that's what we do it we we go and you would have the speakers go to eleven that's a spinal tap reference for the seven people are laughing right now thank you for that it's just odd it's an odd thing and people say you go to France arming now why did why I know now and now it's turned into something absolutely ridiculous absolutely insane I have a couple weird stories on the blog shoot I did I do you know what I dealing to Wall Street journal star his pay Walt I have a couple weird stories on the blog that I would head on very quickly they're sort of connected to my nihilistic feelings right now yesterday they had with the story that twenty percent of a lineal say they have zero friends NGO many friends you have I I don't need em all like you know people that you immediately think that's my policy that's my squad I would think at least three come to mind yeah Dave many friends you have like free immediate posse immediate squad and I think we talked about the do we talk about this the other day what defines a friend Dave's a definition of a friend is is bigger than mine yeah your your your house my definition of his friend is if I'm stuck somewhere three in the morning I can call this person not come out from a deep sleep and and save me am I on on that list you wish yeah because I would I come out there and say yeah I I mean I might take awhile but I'll I'll be there yeah save you and I'm sorry I just wondered I'd say four five maybe that's it I would say I have probably four five in this area at that point but now we have twenty percent of millennials say they have no friends at all okay here's the next part of this and this is where I have to talk like the original robot in the original version of Douglas Adams hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy the really bad special fax version of the TV version of that that book and the robot was always like nine in ten young Brits believe their life lacks purpose nine in ten Jan zero they are after millennials by the way they say their life lacks purpose yeah or meaning no purpose so meaning these are people sixteen to twenty nine years old eighty nine percent that's compared by the way to an average of eighty percent across all ages but just half fifty five percent of the over sixties signaling true contentment may simply come with age now here's the part that got me about this story from the sun listen to this in fact as many as thirty percent of today's youngsters believe they are stuck in a rut with eighty four percent claiming they are failing to quote live their best lives what the hell does that even mean live your best life energy is not a millennial think that what does that mean that live your best life what is that mean I'm going to guess it has something to do with social media like their their life does it look like it belongs up on Instagram like those models see now that's a very good that that's actually probably very very smart living your best life is situational I've always said and I strongly believe this about one of my positive qualities as a human being is that I am situationally happy everything doesn't have to be perfect for me I can always find something good to focus on I'm I'm a relentless optimist in my life I really it doesn't sound like it today because the male melancholy in blue but I'm very much an optimist and whatever's going on whatever situation I'm in I can find a reason to be positive about it and I think that's a gift because a lot of people cannot do that I I didn't realize that until I was in my mid twenties when I was around people that were incapable of feeling gratitude for anything and I'm looking at this and I'm thinking okay eighty four percent of these young people the failing to live their best life follow up question what's your best like the we can't all be astronauts in rock stars the Kardashians and all that sometimes we just have to be Monday in people who find happiness doing Monday and things that's the reality of it everybody wants it it's like when you ask people if you ever met somebody says yeah I totally believe in reincarnation and then they tell you the famous people they were in their past life here's the thing nobody ever says I totally believe in reincarnation I was a milkmaid I was a unique I was at a cockroach they never do that it's always something fabulous you know they're like I believe I was Cleopatra no you know I don't think you were I don't feel like you were yes indeed so most people are content there's moments of happiness it's impossible to be a hundred percent happy all the time well then it gets boring it's kind of like the weather in San Diego the weather in San Diego California is always perfect to the point where you're like dang to be just get a rain cloud we just get a stiff breeze anything always perfect it becomes annoying to have everything always be perfect you're right yeah I don't think I I you know I think that life is I think that being happy is a a pro active thank you I think that people waiting for happiness to fall upon them are doing it wrong you have to pro actively pursue happiness and that doesn't mean pursue a lot of money or pursue any of these things it means that if you practice gratitude in your life if you look at the things that you do have and say wow this is amazing really amazing you will be a happier person you will absolutely be a happier person contents a good word for the anti but these youngsters man they're just going through life I'm just I'm not leaving my busy life according to the study of fifteen hundred Brits the biggest barrier to finding purpose and achieving greater happiness is a lack of finances seen other doing it wrong they're doing it wrong if you could be situationally happy have you ever seen the movie life is beautiful Dave the about the concentration camp all we okay with that yeah yeah I've been running really good movie I mean stunningly good movie and the entire premise of that movie boils down to he's in a concentration camp and yet he finds ways to create magic and sure way for his kid that is breaking concentration camp and here we have young people who are probably sitting there with their new iPhones not really having to worry about where their next meal's gonna come from or whether they're gonna be persecuted or whether they're gonna die soon itself in there just like it is still feel like I'm living my best life all my god whiners what is.
