Janney to become a botanist. After that say it's just yeah. I just love to learn more about her. So what about if I said? Let's go to the Westralian herbarium and check out some of the specimens. She denied it to Barium. I would love that. The herbarium is a vast library of specimens and seeds sampled from W. is incredible diversity of plants. And let's made a former head of the herbarium I because at one year old botanist Dr Naval margins path crossed Rica Erickson's when he was just a boy. I guess when I was a child. There's a Bush land not far from home and used to go and look at orchids and things like that are really fell in love with a an unseen insectivores plans and I was really fascinated by that. Here was a plant living near my backyard could catch insects and dissolve them and I found that not macabre but really interesting so I proceeded to grow these things when I was quite young around about eleven or twelve. What were those plants they call draw surro- and it so happens the Westralia. The South Western Australia is a real maker. Most of the drivers in the world is fairly worldwide genus on there so many in south Western Australia that it's really remarkable area. A real hot spot for these Sundays and so I had a chance of showing some of these. Some Pot. Plants at wildlife show was in the town hall and in those days knows this particular.

As was one person came up to me rather thin prim looking lady and I had a label on the plan to one of them. An put used the name draw.

These things are nearly died but she was very polite. Very firm and author Hollandia of the wrong name on this terrible but I soon learned. I found her rather frightening but then I was probably shy.

"I'm going to have to be the mom from what? What's the movie with? Oh. It'll come to me in a minute. I was thinking it's kind of a Lisa versus Bart Simpson thing that you're talking about, right? No better off dead from better off. And there's, there's the overbearing mom with the son who she drags around and she's all you, you've met my boy, and he's trying to hook him up with the French exchange student and KOMO foot Dinna, and we'll have wrench food and French bread. You love my boy, wrench, the language of love, and she's really overbearing. That's absolutely. Yeah. What's happening here, there, they are just trying to make sure that their genes are well, taken care of the, the one of the more, you know, scienc- ways of saying that the one of the lead author says, is that these females have found a way to increase reproductive success without having more offspring themselves. So the idea here is that they can. Make sure that there is a good number of, of, of grandchildren out there because they are past mating age that is possible. So they're just trying to really ensure return on investment in that sun. So there you go. The noble families shoe I am. Glad I made a good investment in this. Boy is boy is such a good investment. Okay. Sorry. Next story and, and speaking of good investments. Speaking of good investments, tiger sharks. No one when they see one, this is a study from Murdoch university's Harry Butler institute and the Australian Institute of marine science. They attached special tags with combined cameras and motion environmental sensors to twenty seven tiger sharks in the nigga Lou reef off the coast of Western Australia. Now, tiger sharks have very sharp very large teeth. Generally speaking, if you're thinking about the three most dangerous shark species to humans that is the great white shark. Tiger shark and the bull shark that being said is talked about on the show many many many, many many, many times, not many people actually die for shark attack each year. So those are the quote unquote most dangerous, but still the ten deaths a year spread across three whole species of sharks all over the place, anyway. Regardless, tiger sharks are known to be very good hunters, very aggressive very sharp point teeth, very good in so looking at exactly how they behave in England. Grief gives an opportunity to see how they're kind of interactions are with their natural prey out in the ocean. And so they collected so far. It's a pretty small selection, it's only about sixty hours of footage, but it's definitely a start. They actually were looking at three D movements of the sharks in relation to their prey, which I think is what made this study. So particularly interesting. So they saw a number of target species, the big ones were turtles large fish and other sharks of the three main prey species that they were looking at through the study now turtles. That's one of the ways that you can tell the tiger shark has really sharp teeth with really strong bite muscles as they can actually bite into and predate upon seek turtles, which means they have to get through that shell. So that is a pretty good hunter. And then large fish and other sharks, which are one could argue is also a large fish..

"They mentioned high-tension now. I need to preface by saying that indeed. I do think the twist in high-tension doesn't make any sense. But I still love the movie. I absolutely love high-tension. But I agree at the twist is like what I mean, it doesn't it doesn't really make any sense. But by that point in the movie again, like identity, I didn't care because I enjoyed the hell out of everything that preceded it that I forgave the ending. This bloody thriller directed by Alexandra who is a tremendous horror and thriller director follows Marie as she spends a weekend at the family farm for best friend, Alex only to suddenly find both herself and Alex being pursued by a relentless killer who murders Alex's entire family. And then anyone else who tries to help them. It's brutal movie really really bloody really really tense. The end. Title makes absolute sense. But turns out that Marie was actually the killer the whole time and she's been chasing poor Alex across the French countryside. This would be forgivable if the twists if the entire film that preceded it hadn't made it literally impossible for Marie to be the murderer unless you had superhuman strength and can be in several places at once to witness events that she couldn't possibly have seen. Yes. Kind of a it's a it's kind of a kind of a dishonest. This honest ending dishonest twist. But I don't care like I said, I loved everything before it. So next bad twist ending that collider mentions his Spiderman three now, see I don't even remember I have barely barely a memory of Spiderman three. Spiderman three was the biggest box office. Success of the original Spiderman trilogy by director Sam Raimi's, featuring dazzling special effects, spectacular action and the emotional payoff of a series long arc involving Harry played by James Franco, swearing revenge on Peter played by Toby Maguire for the death of his father Norman. The film's suddenly comes to a halt to have Harry's Butler Bernard a character who uphill. This point has had maybe a handful of lines in the entire series explained that he's always known. Norman was the green goblin and Norman actually killed himself by accident while trying to kill Peter. It was the clumsy est. Ending to one of the most compelling storylines. We've seen in the comic book films so far. I do not remember that at all. And by the way, I can't believe that Spiderman three was the biggest financial success of that of that trilogy. Wow. Okay, next. What the collider dot com? Things is that one of the worst twist ending shutter island. Teddy daniels. Played by Leonardo Di Caprio is called to shutter island to investigate the disappearance of a patient from the islands psychiatric facility. What follows is. A Hitchcock thriller is teddy brings begins to unravel the secrets of shutter island discovering evidence of a sinister conspiracy spearheaded by the facilities head doctor played by Ben Kingsley. Here's here's the thing about this about the ending of shutter island. The twist of shutter island is that I don't I personally, I don't think it's a twist ending. I because I really wasn't surprised by it. Didn't it didn't seem like your typical stupid twist ending Allah. Am night Shamlan. I just didn't view it as a twist ending because I kind of saw where it was going. They drop hints throughout the entire movie. So to me, it wasn't a twist ending. But here's what they say as most people guess after watching the film's trailer. Teddy himself is the missing patient, and the entire film was a delusion. He created to avoid dealing with the guilt of losing his wife and his children to his wife's murder suicide, which means the doctors have just been letting him run all over the island and pretend he solving a mystery, which seems they're responsible. Yeah. No it worked for me. Here's one of the worst twist endings of all time. And again, we bring up m night Shamlan who has made a career out of really terrible and stupid twist endings, this one is from his two thousand four film the village, which is really one of the most ridiculous twist endings of any movie ever. And I'm even including other and channel on twist endings. The village focuses on a group of colonial era. Settlers living on the edge of a forest haunted by sinister monstrous beings when Ivy that's Bryce Dallas. Howard's fiance is stabbed by a rival. She ventures out into the woods to try and find medicine to save his life believing the creatures might actually take pity on her blindness. And then Ivy stumbles out in onto a modern day road and runs into a park ranger because her old tiny village is actually just a community of people led by ivy's father living in the middle of a wildlife. Preserve they set up a fake nineteenth century village because they wanted to return to a quote, simpler time, and the creatures were just people in costumes who would occasionally show up to discourage anyone from leaving. So no monsters just a bunch of old people playing make believe what their kids in monster suits, one of the stupidest twist endings in the history of movies. And I remember people being really really angry. About about the end of that movie. And justifiably so because that came out after signs, which is another a night Shyamalan movie that has a really stupid twist ending and people were starting to get sick of the of the Shamlan by by by the village. It started to his fan base started even even his hardcore fan base who loved six cents who loved unbreakable at this point. We're going really man really it was actually just modern times. And those people were in costumed, that's what you're going with. He he started to lose fans pretty quickly after the village. And justifiably so one of the stupidest twist endings of Alta next one collider brings up is one that I don't agree with at all, and that's Vanilla Sky. I loved this movie. I love Vanilla Sky. Tom Cruise plays. David ARA aims a publishing a publishing heir just figured in a terrible car accident by his jealous ex lover. Julie played by Cameron Diaz who was killed in the crash forced to wear a per static mask. David begins having bizarre, hallucinations in which his face isn't destroyed. Julius still alive. So I by the way, as I mentioned, I adore this movie. I think I think Vanilla Sky is is is is a really great movie one of my favorite Cameron Crowe movies. And the twist here as it turns out David is living in a lucid dream after having himself suspended in cry asleep to wait until the technology exists to repair his face, or at least that might be. The twist director Cameron Crowe has stated that there are actually five different ways to interpret the ending, including that the entire film, actually. He's actually a book being written by David's friend, Brian played by Jason Lee. There's a lot of ways to interpret the ending Vanilla Sky. It's a really ambiguous. Really am biggie was ending. And I love that movie. I really do it. I was I was really sort of devastated by the end of it. Yeah. I mean, I I found it emotionally like I thought the last scene in that movie was just overwhelmingly emotional. Yeah. I I love that movie. Okay. Now, the next one here what the stupid twist ending. According to collider dot com is a horrible movie a terrible movie called the life of David gale. It's such a stupid movie. David gale playback Kevin Spacey as a college professor and anti-death penalty activists who is on death row for the murder of his fellow activists. Played by Laura Linney, a reporter played by Kate winslet's. Is granted a final interview with David days before his execution to tell his story. She then uncovers a tape that shows that shows Laura Linney character actually killed herself and tries to get David's conviction overturned, that's that Kate Winslet tries to do. Here's the deal. David is executed, but has another tape sent to. Kate winslet's character after his death. That reveals he was actually present and four and assisted in constant suicide. The to intentionally made the scene appear as if David had murdered her as an ultimate act of protest against capital punishment. So good job deliberately making yourself appear guilty for heinous crimes to point out that there are flaws in the Justice system. An absolutely terrible movie from beginning to end and all also what you know. One of the stupidest twist endings ever. So all right. We'll take a break here. Three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number. We'll.

I know I mean like he basically was like jumping in front of a bullet for him whenever they were running away. You know, I mean, like true son was just standing there. And then that was unable Wilsey wasn't it who shot. Was that little crane? Yes. Yeah. Yeah. So yeah. I don't know. But I could see slither. Sliver door. I was gonna say, I think you think you convinced me on this little in one that. Seems fitting he's just a little conning. I think that's where he's. And he tried to he tried to eat Mandrake root.

So this is true son's mom and dad, biological biological room. Dan, I claim them for Riddick will mate will actually I was gonna play the bomb. But since we're putting together claiming them for raven claw. Because especially the mom like she really goes out of her like, she really tries to embrace part of the culture that true son has grown up in help him better. Like to kind of go like all like all go hat, like Algo, meet you halfway. And we will figure out how to get through this together.

Yeah. In the beginning. I was like this lady's mean like, 'i stand she's got her son back, but like he's clearly been through a lot or like, he clearly loves his adoptive parents.

Had Kim accepted. Yep. But then I agree. She did get a lot better that the next scene with her was much sweeter. You kind of her softer side. Yeah. Totally different. I think that I so strongly disliked her in that first scene because I was adopted and I kind of put myself in true sons shoes right there as if like I had been taken from where I am now and like put in a situation where like I had to call my birth. Parents might parents I'd be like Hugh didn't raise me. I'm not calling. You my mom or my dad like sorry piece out by. You know what I mean like? I don't know if I'm an anomaly with adoptive kids. But like, I literally want nothing to do with my birth. Parents. I don't care who they are. I don't need to ever meet them. They're not my parents. So like, I totally identified with true son in that moment, like get me out of here. Like, this isn't my family. You know, like, I would never say that my birth. Mom is my mom like she's not. I don't care that. She burst me. I mean, I do like that sounds really harsh really mean. But like like, I'm thankful she gave me life, but I'm more thankful that she gave me to my adoptive parents. 'cause like, that's my mom and dad. So I just like really felt strongly with truce on like, dude. I get it. Go back to your adoptive. Parents. That's your family. Those are your parents..
