I'm trying to overcompensate for the fact that people were saying that my my podcast with too quiet trying to overcompensate there we go. Why is that light sitting there going peak? Allow tests want to test. What's fuck you? Okay. So evidently, the reason why it said peak was because I had reached the memory limit from my LS ten right deleted some shit. I'm back. So anyways, the fuck was I was talking about that guy. I guarantee you. He's not a bad guy last night. He was sitting at talking to his wife. He couldn't even sleep. It's wife or his girlfriend. You know, she's sitting down on the corner. You know, holding her knees sitting in the corner go why did you do that? And he's like. I did it like Gus Grissom in the right stuff. It was a click.

I don't think that guy's a bad guy. I don't it was just. Get off the problem is they're being led by a crazy, man. Rex Ryan is out of his fucking mind. Another thing that I've said since last fucking year. Okay. That guy I don't know if he's bipolar or manic depressive, all right, but I am a psycho, and I can spot another psycho fucking cross the room that guy is out of his mind.

They didn't realize he was having a manic episode. You know, all the coaches sign in that bus as he's walking up and the depths of his insecurity saying that, you know, you don't even deserve to be here. He had to so overcompensate for it.
