The Rude Pundit on the Craziness Surrounding the Pelosi Attack

"You also tweeted maga freaks. Well, Pelosi's attacker was a liberal a long time ago. Me. Did you always believe Tom Hanks during baby blood? Or is that more of a recent thing? I mean, these are clearly everything he espoused is every right-wing talking point, right? Yeah. Yeah. And you know, so what if he wants maybe was a green party member or whatever they're saying. There's so many lies that have come out, like the underwear thing is now seen as that is absolutely true. And there was one Fox report local Fox affiliate that had the report, and they retracted it. There's nothing about Pelosi or the attacker being in their underwear. That was false. Right. But that has become the standard story. That's why I asked before the thing. That's what I didn't know whether he was in his under because he was asleep, but that's what I was saying is was that even reported. And that's the problem, rude. I keep saying this election is about objective reality. They just make stuff up. And then you know what happens. The rest of us, like people like us are like, wait, which is true or what was reported or not, because where did that come from? And you're like, it comes from nowhere. Right? Yeah. And it is everywhere. And if you go on, I mean, they are sure that it's one of two things. It was either a gay prostitute, and they got into a dispute over pay or something like that. Or his gay lover and they had a spat. And I'm like, why couldn't it have just been, why is it so outside of the realm of possibility for you to think that you have had poison rhetoric for 5 years, plus now 6, 7 years now, and that somebody might act on it? I mean, and the fact that they have to throw homophobia on top of something that's just awful. This is violence against an elderly person who was nearly killed. Who is not gay, coincidentally. And I just say my favorite little Sid bit though from it is, you know, they called it, he was a Castro nudist. And I love the people that are like, oh my God, he supports Fidel Castro. And I'm like, oh my God. No. You morons. That's a neighborhood. There's a neighborhood in San Francisco.

The New Movie 'Elvis' Is an Oscars Shoo-In

"Kind of tell you guys, I saw the Elvis movie. Damn, was that a good movie? You know, the director baz luhrmann has a very stylized way of making movies. If you saw the famous one he did, I mean, you know, Romeo and Juliet, moulin rouge, Gatsby, he has a certain way of making movies, even though Australia, which wasn't my favorite kind of movie. It definitely has a certain look to it that you can't mistake. It's like, you know, when you hear a certain guitar player, you can tell if it's Aerosmith, you can tell if it's The Rolling Stones, YouTube, you can hear slash them all away, you can hear, you know, Keith Richards in my way. Same thing with bosler and you always know when you're watching one of his movies. But I'll tell you, Elvis, the movie just built and built and built. It kept getting quicker and quicker and quicker until not no spoilers here. Elvis develops a drug, a pill habit, and, you know, he starts to lose, lose it, and just an amazing, amazing portrayal by Austin butler, this guy was born to play Elvis role, music was great. They even like patched in like some rap ish music into Elvis songs or I can't explain it. They took the old, the music of down south, you know, the black music, the gospel songs and infused it with some contemporary singers from today, and it really sounded amazing. Austin butler's gorgeous. I don't think Elvis had eyes that blue, but the weird thing is the way Tom Hanks plays colonel Parker, you might find that odd 'cause he has this accent he used it. I always thought colonel Parker was like a southern gentleman kind of guy. You know, like, I just assumed he was that guy. Even though he did live down there, he had this Dutch accent apparently. And it was a Dutch accent that I've learned he used that also had the hottest speech impediment, so Tom Hanks really went out of his way with prosthetics you can't believe. You can't believe it's Tom Hanks. The accent, the prosthetics, the acting, there's no question he's going to be up for best actor. I've even put Austin butler up as well from the same movie. It's that good.

The New SAFE-T Act of Illinois Is CRIMINAL

"There's this bill that passed. It was super quiet how this went through called the safety act, one of the sponsors of the bill is a guy by the name of Justin slaughter. Oh, that's a very fitting name for the sponsor of the safety act. Justin slaughter. You can't make it up. It's like something out of an Orwell film. Yes, Mark murder is the sponsor of the safety act. And Hank homicide was the final sponsor. No, actually, his name really is Justin slaughter. I can't make this stuff up. With a black power fist, raised to the heavens. Exclaiming. That the passage of the safety act. So I want to make sure I understand this correctly. The safety accountability fairness and equity today act, otherwise known as the safety act. They try to be super cute with their naming here. Passed with the backing of the Illinois legislative black caucus. This is back in January of 2021. Beginning in January 2023, it abolishes cash bail. Now, JB pritzker signed this into law. It is state law now, and there he is. There's Justin slaughter not to be confused with Hank homicide or Mark murder. Who puts his black fist to the sky as the bill that will allow the slaughter of Illinois citizens continue. The safety act has not received the coverage it deserves. Illinois is one of the largest states in the country. Illinois has one of the largest cities in the world, let alone America, Chicago, and this is not received any sort of coverage. All kind of goes into this theme, Republicans wake up. Why are you not talking about this stuff? So now starting in January 2023. These offenses will be non detain able offenses. Beginning in January 1st, 2023.

I mean, they're so bad. I mean, people don't even know them. When touring pros don't even know him, how's the average golfer? No. Anyway, so he buried the first hole, but he was four shots behind before you know it. Because of two shot pounding. So he had no chance. So anyway, but now it's boiling down and I'm watching. And I'm thinking, okay, who's going to win? Is it going to be subtract straka? Who's missed the last 6 cuts and they keep in those tournaments whose 39 over par? Okay. 39 over par set 78 75 at the Wyndham tournament, going into this ball striking strokes gained T green I saw this Justin ray had this on Twitter. For the last 8 tournaments, was number 197 or something dead last worst on the PGA Tour in the last 8 terms. And here he is. And playing a hard golf course, by the way. That TPC Memphis, I mean, that's not an easy golf course. No doubt about it. And, you know, here he is with a chance to win. And I love it. I see I look on Twitter and so my show up video of his swing, some guy on there. I forget what it was. And he's got a video of a swing says, what a pure motion. I'm like, you know, of course that immediately sends me to the, you know, look at the stats. What a pure motion, 179th strokes gained tee to green. And by the way, I think he does have a good-looking swing. He's a very nice looking swing. But it's not about having a nice looking swing.

"I mean, I thought, how do you get a penalty? And then I thought, okay, I wonder what the whole thing's going to be, what's the controversy, did he take, they say he took a bad drop, I'm thinking, oh my God, all right, what are they going to call you? Not what are people going to call him a cheater or whatever? Okay, so it turns out he took a drop from the hazard and he dropped his ball and after he dropped it, the ball part of the ball was touching the red line. And you have to take complete relief. So you know, he didn't know the rule. Which is amazing. I've talked about this so many times in the past. How in the world are amateur golfers? Average handicapped from male golfer, 16 and a half. Average handicap for a female golfer 28 and a half. Only 10% of golfers. Have a handicap. So what do you think the real handicap is? I mean, like the real handicap if you count it, everybody. Like I was at topgolf the other night. Took my son Henry over there and went with my buddy Rick silverman and his wife Karen, we went to the top golf. And I'm looking around and it's great because people are all in the golf and they're hitting in their having a great time and oh my goodness. I mean, they are awful. I mean, I want to really take that average real handicap. It's going to be like super, super high. But my point is this. How many people that actually play golf? Do you think have any earthly idea or clue about the rules of gough? When cam run Smith, one of the best players in the world. Probably soon to be number one player in the world.

And Justin Thomas is kind of out there, but not like in it and softly is not in it and can't leave not really in it and I'm thinking, oh, this is not good. You got JJ spawn who had what did he miss? I think they said he'd miss like 6 cuts in a row leading up to this tournament. And he's right there, got a chance to win. And actually it was Seth strawberry. He'd miss the 6 cuts, but JJ spina hadn't been much better. I mean, you could go all the way back to the Charles swab. At the end of May, or even the PGA Championship, miss cut.

"And then I ask them another question. I said, honest question here. Did you even watch my videos? 'cause you're not doing anything I tell you to do. I said, your club is swinging 2° left. It needs to be 3° to the right. You got 5° to go on your path adjustment. You have to exaggerate a lot more. He goes, I watched your videos. Even while I was on the range after about two dozen balls, then I'd try hitting some. Okay, well, that's good. You got to do it some more. Driver on the upright setting, I said, tee the ball higher. Ball further back in your stance two inches, path needs to be much more to the right. These things will help you do that. Feel like you're swinging up until the right more as you start your downswing. Square your left hand much, much, much earlier, way earlier. If it hooks too much good, problem is it might not get airborne because you bought the wrong loft driver. 9°. What were you thinking? Then I put you're honestly very close. You have to exaggerate the things that I said. Your grip is good. Make sure your pressure is light. Club face is great at the top, which is huge. If you could point the club a little more to the right at the top, it'll help you swing the club more on the right and the downswing it will help your path. But go back and hit some more balls and make those adjustments and then report back to me with some more videos. You got a good trajectory for saint Andrews I put, oh my God. Who sold you that driver? And I said, if that's going two 40, it's rolling 60 yards. Because that thing is in ten feet off the ground at a 125 yards. He goes, oh, I bought it at this place. At the same place it did my club fitting. I guess they're not very as good as they advertise. And I told them, I said, they just pick whichever one you hit the furthest. But you're trying to fix your swing. They're giving you a club that allows you to play better with

"But his swing's not that bad, but the thing that was amazing is I could see the ball taken off. I actually took a picture of this and I sent it back to him. And the ball is taken off. And I've got a I took a picture of the ball and I swear to God, it's like a 150 yards out there. And the ball is like ten feet off the ground. Ten feet. I'm like, you can see the ball. It's like ten feet off the ground. This ball's not even getting in the air. Okay, so if I close the face at all to square it up at impact, I mean, now it's going to be 5 feet off the ground. It's not even going to get in the air. Like I initially set, he does not have enough loft on his driver. This is my number one thing. Most golfers do not have enough loft on their driver. You have to have loft and then learn to square it up. But you have too little loft, you open the face, that creates too much loft, and then you think you're going to fix that, but buying less loft and you guarantee you'll slice forever, I promise. So anyway, I sent this guy some notes. See, I was in determined to help this guy. I got your videos, I said, much better than I thought, except and then I hammered him again. I said much better than I thought, except the crappy attitude. Do you have toward me? I put a laughing out loud in there just to, you know, I didn't want to piss the guy off too much. You should easily be at ten handicap. He should be. He's actually doesn't have too bad of a swing. But he's a 20. He stinks. Look at the height this ball has taken off, I said, I took a picture I showed it to him. The face is open to the path to create a slice. Oh, how are you going to get the ball airborne if you square the face? The ball is only ten feet off the ground to begin with. That driver should adjust 2°, not one. Put it up to the maximum amount of loft and also set it on a draw setting if it has one. First off, if you're a slice or buy a driver that's built to draw the ball, one that has an adjustable weight one where you can put the weight toward the heel or buy a driver that says it's to draw the ball. Equipment matters. I'm just telling you. And set it on the most upright setting that you have.

"Okay. They know a lot about golf. They know a lot about equipment, but they don't know how to teach golf. So what they're going to do is they're going to give you a club. That is going to probably just go farther and a club that maybe you can play better with your crappy swing. They're not going to give you a club that's going to help you swing better. Not at all. They couldn't care less about that. Because they don't know how to do that. What they're going to do is they're just going to give you a club that maybe goes for now. If you're somebody who slices the ball, you got the club face open relative to the path of your swing. Your balls spinning too much. They don't know to tell you to square the face. They don't know how to tell you to get the path better. They don't know how to tell you to get your release better. Or where your release point should be. They don't know how to explain the arc and the plane of the swing to you. They don't know how to explain all these things that I simply show people in my one shot slice fix. They don't know how to do all that. So all they know to do is I just got to get this spin less. And I'll get them to hit it farther and if I get them to hit it farther, he's going to buy a club. And how do they do that? They reduce the loft and what they do that that means that you are going to be a slicer for as long as you use that club. It's never, ever, ever going to change. So anyway, I got this fella to send me a video of his swing. I'm going to tell you about that next. But before I do, let me help you fix something else here.

"Ball. Other than that, the ball won't even get in the air. And if you're hitting the ball that's going ten feet off the ground and slicing, it is impossible to fix your slice because to fix your slice I have to square the club face relative to the path of the swing. And if I square the club face relative to the path of swing, that's going to reduce the loft of the club. And if you're only hitting a ten feet off the ground to begin with, how are you going to even get the ball in the air? So this is my original original thinking. And I told the guy said I could give you the greatest less than a world that's ever been seen. But a 20 handicap shouldn't be using a 9° driver ever. And then I put in, again, ever using his exclamation point. And he goes, I did adjust it up to 10°, and it made a small difference. Well, okay, there you go. Put it up to 12 and you might have a chance. But how in the world did this guy buy a 9° driver? Crazy. I said, that's not close enough. And he also need to put it on an upright setting. Of course he didn't do that either. When you put it on an upright setting, that brings the toe up in the air to close the face a little bit, increasing the loft will also close the face. So at least you got a fighting chance, but somebody that drives the ball 20 handicap does not use a 9° driver. When touring pros are using a ten and a half 10° Dustin Johnson using a ten and a half degree and this guy's a 20 handicap, 61 years old, hits a 220 yards in the air and he's using a 90° driver. There's no chance. Zero chance. So now we get to see, it didn't take me long to get to the reason why.

I got to help this guy a little bit. I go, bob. You are certainly in the minority and need to review the tapes to see what you are missing. Like, you know, one of my biggest things in life is you have to be able to accept responsibility. Like, I'm accepting responsibility because this guy did not do as good as he wanted to do. Is he accepting responsibility, okay? No, he's not accept responsibility. I told him. Hey, you're into minority, bud. It's working for other people. Like a lot of other people. You got to be thinking, what am I not getting here? What am I not doing? What am I not following? Oh boy, this goes on and on. So I got to take you through this whole thing. I said, make the necessary adjustments I suggested to your driver. Did you do that? Because that's the first thing I think. I said, are you using a driver that's set up correctly for you? I've seen the first thing I'm thinking is what kind of driver does this guy have? Do I have a fighting chance to get this guy to hit the golf ball straight or with a little bit of draw? Because if you're a 20 handicapper, which he tells me he was. He drives it between two 40 and two 60. Which first off, that means he flies it if he drives it two 40, he flies at maybe two 20, maybe.

That's one way you could do it. Another way you can do it is what I want to talk about today. I have this new series out. You've probably seen it. You've followed me here on the podcast. Maybe you follow me on Twitter at Hank kaney. But if you have ever probably Googled anything on golf or looked at any golf site, they're probably following you everywhere with my one shot slice fix. This is a program that I developed after all these years of teaching to help people fix their slice. It just so happens that 90% of all golfers who play the game slice the ball. Left to right for a right handed player right to left for a left handed player. They slice the ball. I always say if there's a road you take to playing good golf, nowhere on that road is there a slice. You can go from slicing to hooking to ga Goff. You can go from hooking to Gaga. You can go from slicing to hooking to learning to fade it and you're at great golf. But nowhere on that road, can you go directly from slicing to good Goff. It doesn't happen. Every better player. And the history of the game of gough, the long illustrious history of the game of golf. Every better player has fought a hook at one time or another. Every better player, even the ones that predominantly played fates like trevino or Ben Hogan, they fought hooks. And I'll tell you what, when Li Torino hooked the ball terrible, which he hated or Ben Hogan hooked the ball terrible, which he hated. They were still a lot better than any of us when they did that. So you got to fix your slice. I've got a whole program that I take it through. And it's all proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that it works. I've given over 70,000 lessons to amateur golfers.

"I think I can say with great confidence that this guy was the absolute greatest of all time. And more than that, Vin Scully was woven into the fabric of the USA. Once again, a standing ovation for Henry Aaron. Though the confrontation for the second time, Aaron walked in the second inning. He means the tying run at the plate now, though we'll see what downing does. Alice about delivers and his low ball one. And that just adds to the pressure. The crowd going, downing has to ignore the sound effect. And stay a professional in pitches game. One ball and no strikes, and waiting out for your deep and straight away, fast forward is a high 5 in the deep left center field, but they're both back to the city. That was Vin Scully, calling Hank aarons milestone milestone home run. When he passed Babe Ruth for the most career home runs with his 715th Homer, Vin Scully, the beloved voice of the Dodgers for 67 years. Passed away at the age of 94.

But people recognize their names, Colin Montgomery, Bernard longer, Marco mera, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Gary Player. They recognize that people would come out and watch them. Not a lot of people, but still, it was nice to see how they could still play the game. It was more of a casual atmosphere. They've made their money. It's casual atmosphere where they'd Mike these guys up and you could hear them talk to their caddies into the galleries and what they were thinking out loud. It's neat. But that's one thing about the live. You recognize almost every one of these players. The guys that they're featuring are players prominent players from all over the world.

Americans, I think if they can get on cable or network TV at some point, I think it'll be a formidable competition for the PGA Tour. Are you rooting for live to succeed? Or do you think it's bad for golf? Do you think players joining all these different tours is bad for the game? Well, it's nice to have all the best players in the same spot. I mean,

"Welcome back to the Hank Kenny podcast Saturday strong edition. Man, that was a long, long first segment. We got on a roll. We got on a roll there. So let's talk about what you want to talk about. You said we had a lot to talk about. What is it? Well, Henrik stenson in this latest quote this week says, I don't feel like I've given it up referencing the writer cup. And his full statement says, I made every arrangement possible here to be able to fulfill my captain's duties. And I've had great help there from Liv to be able to do that. And still, the decision was made that I was to be removed. Any and poulter made a comment that they still might be able to play because it hasn't been ruled yet. So let's say that you were offered the European radical captaincy or American writer cup captaincy. It's an honorable position. You don't get paid. But it's an honorable position to hold. Liv golf comes around and you're a 46 year old athlete like Henrik stenson is. And they say, Steve will pay $50 million to forfeit the writer cup captaincy. We'll try to allow you to do it. I mean, if they allow you to do it, will allow you to do it. But most likely you're probably not going to be able to do it because the PGA of America guys don't like that. So what would your decision be? I mean, I think the PG of America is just showing some solidarity with the PGA Tour. As is the European tour, because the European tour is they obviously control their writer cup captaincy and the team and all that stuff. They've got their own points criteria, world ranking points versus DP world tour ranking points. I think it's a power play. I think it's showing you know what, hey, we don't agree with what you guys are doing. And screw you guys. You know, we're going to hose you. What difference does it make? It's an entertainment. It's a celebration of golf. We talked about it. It's an exhibition, you've got guys that, I mean, Henrik stenson is a figure, although he's going to be a non playing captain. He's a figure that is very stern. He looks for the fans. He's going to be for the European fans. He's going to be a rallying guy and for the American fans, he's going to be a guy that they're just going to yell at him and try to get his under his skin. They're going to yell stuff. Where is the writer kept this year anyway? Oversees somewhere? Said France, is that what was the president's cup this year? Okay. And then it's the rhetoric of the following year. So did he get taken off the president's cup? Well, I don't think he's a writer. I don't think he was in the president's cup. Captain. Okay. Okay, so this year is the president's cup. We got Davis love and who else do we have? Trevor immune. So why Trevor elman is a noun announcer. I mean, why, because he supports the good of the game on the PGA tour. That's a bunch of crap.

I make a joke about, you know, being the 5th major and the open championship being the perfect lead in to the 3M open, but I mean, nobody goes to that event. No, I got a press pass and I don't mean to want to go to that event. Oh, really? Yeah. I got a press pass last year too when I stay for a couple hours. Got some free food. Wow. So I'm looking at Dustin Johnson's tournaments that he's played that contribute to his world rankings, and there's no live events on here. Unfortunately, no events where he's going to get any type of world ranking points. So all the guys that are playing in the live, right now, their events are so new that they're not being rated. They're not being ranked. They don't get points. That's what they're trying to do. That's the next step for the live golf store. They need to qualify for world golf ranking points so that players who haven't won major championships in a long time or haven't won major championships at all can qualify for the masters can qualify for major championship events that require you to have a higher world ranking points. That's the next huge step if Liv cough gets world golf ranking points, they already signed a deal, I think, with the Asian golf tour, they're already collaborating with that tour. But they need to get world golf ranking points themselves so that players can qualify.

Who Was Tom Parker to Elvis?

"Now let's go to Tom Hanks, America's most beloved actor. I'm not going to rank him, but I'm going to say it with some confidence. He is America's most beloved actor and he's a villain. Him and Denzel like number one and number two. I would say so Tom Hanks is interesting in this. And he's interesting in ways that the movie is interesting. So I've heard people complain about the way this movie centers Tom Parker. Basically, the way the movie is built, the framing device is Tom park colonel Tom Parker is on his deathbed. And he is essentially complaining that he has been treated as a villain in the Elvis Presley story that he's playing first out. And that he's called thief and told that he's been stealing from all of us all these years. And the way the film is kind of structured is Tom Parker says, no, I'm not, I'm not a villain. I'm just a normal guy, like you. But I'm also great. Like Elvis. And it's structured, again, this isn't a musical biopic superhero movie. But the way that Tom Parker is used here, it reminded me of Amadeus. The movie Amadeus. He is essentially salieri here. He's the normal, he's the normal guy through whom Elvis is greatness is reflected,

"Paul, as somebody born here, did you ever expect to see a political adversary of an administration who hasn't killed anybody, is not a drug lord, be handcuffed at Reagan airport and put in leg irons to be physically transported by the federal agents to hinckley's cell in the bowels of the FBI. Did you did you think that was ever possible? Yeah, it's really shocking, isn't it? And Hank Lee sell right about the time that hinckley has been released recently released. It was unconditional release. Here we are 41 years after he shot Ronald Reagan. And what bothers me too is, in fact, taking this back to, well, again, the Reagan years, it was with the Iran contra hearings, trying to think who used this term at the time. It might have been Ed meese, who talked about the criminalization of policy differences. Yes. And this is something that the liberals have been doing. And in fact, here, it grows city college just this past week. We had one of our fellows in the institute for faith and freedom, Jay cost. And I know you've read Jake costs, he writes for RealClearPolitics, Washington examiner, national review. He's an expert on James Madison. And he was talking about Madison and the art of compromise. And how politics people make fun of politics being all about compromise, but really that's kind of a virtue of politics in a democracy is that you do have compromise. So parties learn how to compromise and their differences. In fact, Ronald Reagan in 1981, August 13th, 1981, got his enormous federal income tax passed with tip O'Neill and the Democrats overwhelmingly controlling the House of Representatives.

David Simon and Nina Noble Are an HBO Production Powerhouse

"In 1998, HBO aired its first big scale miniseries from the earth to the moon. It was originally budgeted and roughly $40 million, but the network followed Tom Hanks passion and wound up spending more than 60 million. Band of brothers, the Pacific, The Sopranos, and many other HBO projects would be beyond costly as well. But David Simon's HBO shows have proceeded down a different financial path. In large part, due to the acumen of his right hand, executive producer, Nina noble. Saunter down the halls of HBO, talk with their production experts, and you're bound to hear the word trust a lot. Trust is a vital ingredient for any network, but particularly so in HBO, where creators and producers are made to feel largely empowered to bring their visions to the screen without being micromanaged. While there is obvious financial supervision, the network wants to be in business with partners who are financially responsible and not spending their days desperately trying to exact more funds. Nina noble doesn't play such games. She has been working at HBO alongside David Simon for more than 20 years, and is part of an MVP triumphant of female powerhouse executive producers at the network, which includes Eileen landress of Sopranos fame and bernadette caulfield, who operated his field marshal on Game of Thrones. Think of all three women as CEOs of these shows, not in the writer's room, but often everywhere else. Noble is known for being a woman of her word and a complex problem solver. You can say she's in the solutions business, and that makes television life infinitely more agreeable for David Simon.

"From any source other than you and so for series like that that that don't have a built in funding partner. We're able to make them anyway because of the support that individuals who care about crash course and care about our work a to help us make it. A lot of that. Money comes from patriot. And like i said but some of it comes from the new crash course coins crash course. Coin dot com now before we go into this. I think it's important just to say at the outset. The truth which. I did not want to make this episode of dear john. I wanted to take a week off. I felt like we should be able to take a week off now and again and was like we're gonna we're gonna make us episode because we gotta talk about crash course coin. It's true and then i was like there's no way we're going to raise money from a dear john episode about the crash course coin which you can buy a crash course. Coin dot com. There's there's no way we're going to raise a bunch of money. That way hank like let's just let's just take a week off a focus on it was like no no. We're going to raise a ton of money at crash. Course coin dot com so now and then and then i was like at that point like the competitive brother had made. It was like fine. We'll do it'll be proven. Correct right. well you have to do a worse job of pitching it. And i'm gonna do a worse job of pitching at right now which is to say that. It's already been super successful. The support has been really amazing. It's going to already able to do new work that we wouldn't have been able to do this year and also futures so. I'm very excited about this. So i have this idea. Along with the crash christine. We've been tossing around for a long time. And the idea is basically that there is a there is a coin that exists and it has a currency and that currency is the amount of people that you are allowing us to reach with our work and we develop that number by looking at the unique number of learners that interface with crash courses content. Which number you've gives us and and just dividing that into the amount of money that we spend and so we reach a lot of people And we spend a lot of money but we when you divide those numbers together you find out that actually per dollar we spend we reach a lot of people so you can buy a one hundred dollar coin that allows us and will allow us to reach two thousand people or you can buy five hundred dollar coin that will allow us to reach ten thousand people so these coins had a currency and that currency is the number of people who are being helped in their educational journey by crash course and two thousand people is a lot of people and this is actually a secret. john. I haven't told me about this is brandon. Brian guards idea The coins each have hash marks on their borders. And there are a total of two hundred hash marks on each side so as you can actually put your finger and rub it on the hash mark and every little little tiny. Little buzz of your finger is on the On the two thousand learner coin. That's going to be ten individual human beings you are helping to learn while it was. I think it was a really good idea. That's a great idea. We developed the coins with all the people crashed and complexity. We sort of send out any non-euro what's an image or a phrase or a person or a place that sort of evokes learning for you and sarah riley who you may know from social tangents but as is the currently works crash course is suggested The first ever illustrations of human neurons. By santiago ramon hal with are really lovely and look great on a coin Which i loved because it was like and it was history and it science and it's humanity mike. It's the the we use to examine and understand ourselves in the world so does not really perfect and who works for. Sideshow suggested something that her father and grandfather used to say to her translated into english because they were speaking in spanish Knowledge as nothing. Carry all you can. So that's the slogan we've used on the coin great slogan. I just think that they're great. They are great. We had such yes. Oh in a bunch of other ideas from the team was were incorporated into the coin and we ended up with something. That's really beautiful. And was hand engraved by the master engraver at shire post meant which is the mid that we are using an arkansas. They hand stamp each one of these coins. And i got one. And i'm not afraid purchased one. You know who got the first one who our mom or mom is. She's always ready to support anything that we do. She's always first in line. I think she. I think she and dad about the first two tickets to bitcon way we that that is possible. We're very lucky. We're very lucky to have support from our parents. So the crash course coin is available at crash course dot com but only for a few more days. That's why we're making. This now is only available for a few more days. We really hope that that you'll at least take a look and see how beautiful the coins or even if you can't afford to support crash course at that level and just enjoy pretty. The coins are if you want to. And then if you're able to get one and support crash course that would mean a lot to us and of course an ongoing and profound thank you to everybody who supports dear john on patriotic or crash course on patriotic because that is what allows us to continue making this free educational content. That means so much to us. That really is the center of our professional lives in a lotta ways so we feel a deep responsibility to the team of people who make crash course. Oh good but we also feel a deep responsibility to the seventy million people who use it to learn every year and we'd like we'd like to see that number grow. I mean that's a huge number. It's hard to even your head around the size of the size of crash courses viewership but we still know that. There's a lot of room to grow because we know there are a lot of people who want opportunities to learn and aren't aren't getting them in the ways that they need or aren't getting the kinds of Information that's transmitted in a fun and comprehensible way and so we see that as our mission and the great thing about emission like that is that you are never done. And i do want to finish out by saying that. Of course the whole point of this is that crashed were worse. Isn't supposed to cost money for people who cannot Accord it so for the people who can't pay you making it available to the who can't and And do make sound financial decisions. This is not. This is not like a requirement and i really deeply appreciate everybody who interfaces with crassus content in in any way whether you're and also all of those things that i get while whether i'm like walking down the street and somebody stops to tell me that i helped them get their nursing degree or in the deer hanging john inbox.

So yeah thank you regardless of whether you can donate thank you for using crash course and know that. Even if you can't donate you are a very deeply valued member of the crash course community because everybody who ultimately learning only works when we learn together and so let's let's learn together and if you're in a position to help other people with that financially then please do and if you're not that's completely okay.

"The energy that it receives from the sun and it does not re radiate a lot of that energy and so it manages to be hotter than mercury which not by a lot but but by quite a lot so hot that there are some metals that we would think of is really quite solid metals. That would be liquid on the surface of venus. That's wild the mixture really want to not go to venus. Yeah i mean. I did not want to go anywhere to melt. Some lead lead does melt that hot but yeah lead would be a liquid on on venus. Yeah i don't want my lead suit that i'm wearing to like protect me from the sun's rays to melt as i'm stepping onto the surface of the that sounds like a bad party. I don't want to attend. Yeah and it was just announced that the that we we are going to our first missions to venus in thirty years So this very exciting and We will sort of open backed the door we went to venus. And you're like oh. This place is very bad But we are headed back again. And i'm excited for the venus missions. That that nez working right now. I am also excited. It'll be great john. This next question comes from sheena who asks dear hanke john. I'm a promotions coordinator to small tv station. And edit local promos and commercials. People are always asking me to edit videos for them. And when i bring up my freelance pricing list. They get offended that. I won't use my talents for them for free. How do i kindly tell my friends that i will not work for free. Neither a punk rocker nor the queen of the jungle sheena while ramones reference in their John i think that like this is this is a problem But but i think that there is a there is a there are ways to handle this. If there is a an opportunity here where you say like this might be a thing that someone would want to pay for Then you you give them your freelance rates. If it's something where it seems like they're probably asking you for a favor you say and i quote. I added that he. Oh all day at my job. I don't wanna do it when i get home. And yeah even if. That's not totally true. Like even if you do love editing video like you don't wanna do it for free because it's a little bit weird and people should know that it is your job and so you don't you don't wanna do it just as a favor unless you do want to do it as a favor but but i think that like. It's it's to some extent understandable when it's a friend if they don't understand The amount of work that goes into something or your relationship with that activity that they might ask not understanding that this is. This is more of a job than they might think. It is exactly so. I have a really good friend. Who's a dermatologist. And sometimes be like. Oh no hey. Dr hiatt wait. What do you think of this mall and doctor doctor high. It will be like. I think it's fine. And i am using an absurd amount of talent and education and you know expertise in that moment. Yeah that i'm not that i'm not paying for and i think that you have to be careful not to like to remain aware of that and also like not to depend upon your friends so like louis. I got a dermatologist. Right because like my friend shouldn't be my dermatologist. Now they should be my friend. And i think blurring those lines can get really messy but part of what makes it complicated that sometimes it's fine sometimes. It's helpful sometimes. You need a a quick outside word about something or you have a friend who can help you with something. And they're grateful to help and it's good for everyone. Yeah i like so. Like i edit videos for friends sometimes and i like doing it precisely because it's not work but other times i get asked to edit videos and i'm like you have no idea how hard what you are asking for is to do. Yeah and it's only because you don't understand how hard it is that you are asking exact. If you had any idea how hard it was you would never ask like. Hey can you do this hundred our job for me real quick right right and like when nobody when you don't know you don't know But the like but but trying to sort of parse out when like somebody is saying something where like this might be a thing that they need done and they're willing to pay for it versus when they just don't understand the amount of effort that's going to go into it and so they're asking for more than they think they're asking for is very difficult you don't actually know that cause and it is weird to like to for people to get offended that you're trying to value your work Yeah but like also you know. It's it's also understandable that somebody might understand the amount of work that goes into something. Yeah i mean it's so complicated because transactional friendships friendships. That are kind of based on a transactional approach to the relationship are so empty for me and so unfulfilling and so unpleasant really to to feel stuck in yeah but then in a healthy productive friendship you are also reliant upon your friends sometimes and you do turn to them so like is it you know with with our best friends. It's not at all transactional for me to say. Hey i'm going to be a little weight will you order me. Some pizza I just think it's a case by case basis and we each have to decide. Is the friendship feeding us outside.

"Color are your eyes to like a series of aesthetic judgments you. I just didn't know what to put on the piece of paper. I'm about to go get my driver's license renewed because it is about to expire and at that point i might just go ahead and say great because in montana lessons last like fifteen years so like for the majority of those fifteen years. My hair will be gray. I don't know though you're holding up pretty well so far like i would say that year balding more than i am. But you're way less grades and i was areas. Excuse it's true. You don't think i'm bowling at all. Know your hair is a little thinner than mine. it's okay it's not bad thing it's not a value judgment is just a fact all right so it's a little wispy upfront. Right i do. I feel i feel like i haven't seen you in a year and a half so it does look a little like dads that has gotten a little whisper over the years just like thinner hair rather than no hair. I don't know our dad has the most hair of any seventy year old man. I i hope that. I hope that we all after him. Should we keep doing the thing where we only answer to questions. And the podcast or should be to third question. Extra comes from katie. Who has exterior john. I saw photo recently. That claimed it was a photo of mars without the effects of the orange lens that nasa uses the picture was surprisingly brown rather than read. Is it true that nasa uses an orange lens. That distorts the color of mars and it isn't as oranges. We see it if so why would they do that. Not earl grey not orange pekoe a little bit of sleepytime. Kt all colours distorted. Well it's very so turns out. It is a complicated thing. But i will start out by saying nasa does not have a weird conspiracy theory that they want you to think. Mars is more orange than it is right but color is weird and what nasa is trying to do with the photographs that they are color correcting based on a bunch of stuff said they have these little colored things on the surface of the rovers where they can look at them and say this is we know what our this is. We had it on earth. We took a picture of it. We know exactly what colored is then. We'll look at it in the martian light and then we can adjust based on that. But they don't want to show you what mars would look like under earth's sky or what mars would look like under your bedroom lights. They want to show you what mars looks like under mars is sky and so that is what they that's what they calibrate to they try and make it look like what it would look like if you're standing on mars whereas this picture that i think you saw katie. My guess is that is what mars would look like if it were under earth's sky Which which does with much. More earthlike right unsurprisingly. Yeah that makes sense but it turns out a super complicated to figure out like what color something is another planet big or even anywhere Because light like what light is heading. It affects the color dramatically. Yeah there's a great tacit dean line. That i quote in the answer. Precede reviewed book color is a fiction of light which is really beautiful and deeply true. Speaking of which. I should say i should have said this. Probably at the outset but big a huge. Thank you to everybody. Who preordered the book and has been reading it and Sharing it with their friends. It's been an incredible first week of the interviewed books. Life it debuted at number one on nonfiction new york times bestseller list and it's just been so generously received and i'm really really grateful so thank you thank you thank you. Thank you. sorry. If i spoiled the book by sharing that tested deemed quote but related. If you don't want to i i was just writing down notes for for rs. Potential sponsors and i wrote down the word indianapolis Indianapolis person who just i guess studies. Indianapolis would be an indianapolis year or or it could be like the name for enthusiasts of indianapolis the way that taylor swift fans are called swift. Yeah it could be indianapolis person from indianapolis called. Oh god does nothing. Open up a can of worms here. Well there's a lot of debate within indianapolis about. And i think i say i'm from indianapolis. It's not hard you know. You don't i don't i don't need to be a chicago in or a new yorker. I live in indianapolis. Well it's the word to end up with a like an indianapolis the end. Yeah it's napoli site is. I would argue. Maybe even worse is is it missoula zillion but look. I think an indianapolis is the best possible collective down for a bunch of for for for the for the people of indianapolis. I don't know. I we together are the indianapolis colts. Oh god no. I i feel like one of the pleasures of being from sort of mid sized city. Is that you don't have to define yourself primarily by where you live you know. Land new yorkers. And i lived in new york. So i feel like i can say this a little bit. Like new yorkers love being new yorkers like they like it's part of who they think of themselves as being. And i think of myself as being from indianapolis like it's definitely not core to my identity rape and Yeah in in missoula. It's kind of important. Because it's the it's very as the bumper. As the bumper sticker says i love missoula only thirty minutes from montana. Right right and so it is so different from the rest of the place that you you do sort of end up with the identity or else people if you call yourself a montana. They're mike not not really well even missoula to be clear. Indianapolis is also fairly different from the indian actually indian- indiana really contains multitudes. There's there's a lot of different states within our state but but yeah. I don't think of myself as being from indiana. I think of myself as being from indianapolis what was the question. What are we doing ours. We're talking about gifts from some k. Nope this question comes from holly an anc. I don't know the answer to it. So i'm hoping you do and i think you will dear john and hank my seven year old son told me that venus is the hottest planet now. I corrected him saying that. Mercury had to be the hottest planet as it is closest to the sun but according to his favorite podcast the curious kid podcast which by the way is excellent and google. The hottest planet is indeed venus would. Am i missing holly in her son. It's upon its two kinds of son judah nice What are you missing. So obviously mercury is much closer to the sun so it receives more solar radiation per square inch of planet But there are two pieces of how hot something is how how to planet is. There's how much energy it receives. And how much energy. It radiates back out.
