"My name is Robert lam and I'm Joe McCormack and Robert I am ready to lather up That's right In this episode we are going to be exploring an invention We're getting into a little techno history here but we are going to be considering soap Soap has been on everyone's mind a bit more these days I think This is actually a topic that was suggested to us for our previous sideshow invention which is now back a part of stuff to blow your mind itself Soap is something that is I think easy to take for granted Given normal situations Soap is just the thing that you speedily wash your hands with add a little bit of a nice smell take some of the grease or grit off so you can move on to something else Perhaps give you a little bit of peace of mind before you do things like prepare food or put your contacts in But lately it is of course has been stressed how essential it is Via hand washing in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 All right so let's talk about soaps Soap is of course a human invention but did we ever get by without it It's hard for us to imagine life without soap especially now because it aids us in the cleaning of our bodies It also helps us via detergents and the cleaning of our garments We use soaps to clean objects and surfaces as well It helps maintain basic hygiene It prevents the spread of disease and it can also impart a pleasing odor What's not to love about soap and how on earth can we get by without it Now obviously we can look to the animal world for plenty of examples But a few common examples do tell us a lot Birds for instance clean themselves with their beaks and they use water or dust debate themselves Cats dogs and cows are frequent examples of animals that lick themselves to clean themselves And let's consider a few terms to put things in perspective as well We're talking about grooming which is a comfort behavior that is the practice of cleaning the body surface including the cleaning and oiling of feathers with the bill or of the hair with the tongue And there are a few broad categories here There's first of all auto grooming That is an animal's grooming of itself And ultimately that's what's going on when you take a shower in the morning or in the evening or whenever both you know go go out There's also all of grooming which is an animal's grooming of another for parental or social reasons Yeah and one thing that's very interesting is the array of social dynamics that seem to take place through grooming behaviors like say primate grooming behaviors where primates will sometimes pick pick little knits and bits and bugs out of each other's hair as a way to manage and mediate social bonds within groups Yeah it becomes a part of this society for creatures like that And for creatures like us So all of this amounts to a general physical removal of particles Scraped away picked away washed away and there may be.

How in which ways is the human brain like. A mr potato is mr potato different from mr potato head. Well it's mr potato head. Yes okay. I guess actually. It's not mr potato head now right now. There is still a mr potato head but there's also a broader potato head concept. Okay yeah. I haven't followed all the potato head news but i've caught wind of some of the outrage over over some of it so at any rate It's a eagle uses. The potato head as a wonderful metaphor for exactly how our brain works when you plug different sensory inputs into it so I highly recommend it. It's a great great really enjoyable will interview. I enjoyed it. I think folks.

"And i'm joe mccormack and it's saturday time to go into the vault for an older episode of the show. This time we are airing the first part of our series on fingernails. This originally came out. September first twenty twenty gal. Let's dive right in. Welcome to blow your mind. Production of iheartradio. Hey what can this stuff to blow your mind. My name is robert lamp. And i'm joe mccormack in today working to be embarking on part one of exploration of nails not nails like you hit with the hammer though. I guess you could hit him with the hammer. The that would be really bad talking about the kind of nails on the human body. And i was thinking just the other day about how nails are sort of the mascot for idleness for human idleness because when humans are idle what part of the body is going to get the most attention. I think it's almost always going to be the nail right. You're either pay. Some people bite their nails. If you're not biting your nails you're often like looking at your nails. It kind of observing like other too long or like. Oh there's some kind of weird thing here perhaps. This is idiosyncratic psychology of mine. But but i think this is pretty common right. Yeah i mean even if you're not even looking at them some sort of feel them like you're just sort of feeling the edges of your nails and making sure everything's things lined up there for my own part. I i tend to find that. I notice him the most when i am or in the more in the past really the but if i was driving into work and be stuck at a light or something and then i would notice my nails and i would be and that's when i would notice that i need to trim my nails and you know of course being in a position where i really shouldn't be trimming my nails and then the rest of the time. I'm not really noticing them. That's why the good lord made teeth. Yeah we'll get into that. That's not particularly my style but Do my cat is a big big fan herself. I'm also not a nailbiter. But i there people very close to me who are and i've observed the the the behavior for many years closed in with a lot of Thoughts about it.

"My name is robert lamb. And i'm joe mccormack and here we are bringing you. Some of the messages sent us over the past couple of weeks rob. If you're ready. I think we can jump right in. Let's see. Do you mind if i read this one from kate about our navigation episodes make it so so in our three parter on pacific island navigation One thing we ask for. Rossini listeners had experienced themselves with sailing i if they had thoughts about it And so we did hear from someone kate wrote in to say. Hello robert joe and seth. I'm writing in today in regards to the navigation episodes. I have multiple reasons this episode home. But i will try to keep it brief. I i have the book you referenced. Throughout the series it is next on my reading list. I think she's talking about we the navigators by david lewis But then second. I am a licensed day skipper small sailboats and also lived on a tall ship for five months and crossed the atlantic during this crossing the second mate on board offered the opportunity to learn to navigate by the stars and no one else took advantage of it which was good in that it allowed me a solo course for our twenty one day crossing but also may say something of people's disinterest in something they don't directly require the other thing i wanted to mention. Was that although there may have been specialized navigators there would have been a massive amount of knowledge of the sea that would have been as commonplace as our understanding of a stop sign. Within today's society the decline of this knowledge it could be compared to even fifty years ago when the majority of people were able to keep a decent sense of direction in the bush or at least enough knowledge to stay on a path that they wouldn't get lost on even if it wasn't a very noticeable path. Now with the urbanization of humanity there's considerably less common knowledge about bush craft. It takes very little time for this information to be lost to culture anyways. I really enjoy your shows in my long drive to work or much more enjoyable. When i have something to occupy my mind..

"The negroni what well The negroni is a cocktail made with gin sweet vermouth and a type of amaro called campari Traditionally you can put other stuff in there But that's the basic basic stuff It is garnished with a slice of orange or a strip of orange peel. The ladder sometimes flamed. It can be served chilled and straight up or over ice. A single large cube is pretty popular. And it it's it's the drink is smooth and bitter sweet and herbal little bit. Spicy or spiced i guess rather But with this brightness underneath and not to get like poetic on y'all like right off the bat but it just it tastes like a like a summer night.

Volcanoes of Life

"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb, and I'm Joe McCormack in today, we're going to be talking about something that I've been thinking about doing an episode on for a while ever since I read an article while back that really interested me, and that is the surprising and kind of counterintuitive link that has been proposed by many geologists now between life as we know it. It on earth and the fires of Mount Doom, specifically, the the most violent and scary of geologic processes like volcanic eruptions on the movement of tectonic plates. Yeah. This is a great topic to get into. We kind of had a I guess a preamble to this a couple of episodes ago when we were talking about eggs and we talked about the volcano birds and the idea of a volcano being seeming. Almost. Paradoxically to be something that can nourish. As opposed to something. That's just a purely destructive force. Oh, I. didn't think about that comparison at all. But yeah, the the way that the volcanic sand babysits the egg for for the megapode so that it can just run off and do its own thing. Yeah. Raised by a volcano. But so I thought a great place to start here might be with a brief reading from volusia. It is a famous old norse epic poem from the collection that is known as the Poetic Edda. Now, this is a synonymous work. The author is unknown, but the volusia tells the story of the norse Gods culminating in their destruction in the fiery doom of Ragnarok can I'm just GonNa read a couple of Quad trains here. In Anger Smites, the water of the earth forth from their homes must all men flee nine paces fares the son of Jurgen and slain by the serpent fearless. He sinks the Sun. Turns Black Earth sinks in the see the hot stores down from heaven or world fierce gross. The steam and the life feeding flame till fire leaps high about heaven, itself Nice and one fun thing about this poem. It's bit of Tolkien Trivia Robert Tell me if you've heard this before, but the name of the wizard Gandalf that first appeared in Tolkien's. Tolkien's the Hobbit and then of course, the best character in Lord of the Rings, the name of Gandalf comes from the Veloce token, actually borrowed the name from a section known as the tally of the dwarves from this epic poem. Originally, he was going to apply it to the character in the Hobbit, who became thorn oaken shield the leader of the Dwarf Party. But then he decided later on that, it made more sense to apply the name of Gandalf. The wizard. I think because again, Dal means something like magic staff l.. and. I think he made the right choice like, Gandalf. That makes more sense for the wizard than for Thorin. Think. So but cool thing that happens in this poem sort of part of the RAGNAROK. Myth is that there is a rebirth that follows this fiery doom know after the fire leaps high heaven and the Kingdom of the Gods is destroyed. Earth is not just left in cinders instead, there is a renewal from the fire and the author writes now do I see the earth new Rizal Green from the waves again, the cataracts fall and the Eagle flies and And Fish, he catches beneath the cliffs. So there's this great link between Fiery Cataclysm and rebirth and renewal of life in norse mythology, and and of course, you know these are symbolic elements. I'm not suggesting that they had some kind of scientific insight with this is something that I think is taken as a metaphor largely about human life itself, but coincidentally, it ends up kind of ringing true with things. We're finding out about geology and nature. Well, it's something you see in a lot of different mythological cycles, right I. mean you see it in Hindu mythology? In. Various. American mythologies. Thinking about. Meslin. South America in particular society that things will rise things will fall that there will be cataclysm that whole world will be destroyed, but new worlds will rise out of them and have risen out of them before. Yeah. I was thinking about themes of fiery eruption in the greening of the earth together or sort of a creator destroyer duality. One that came to my mind that that I thought, you might know something about because I know I've heard you talk about Hawaiian mythology before was the Palay myth. Yeah. Yeah. The Hawaiian got his Palay is an interesting example, a deity of fire and Volkan Ism I was reading a book titled Pay Volcano Goddess. Goddess of Hawaii by H are low nemo, and he points out that when Polynesian voyagers I arrived in Hawaii, they brought their gods with

"Hey welcome to invention my name is robert lamp and i'm joe mccormack i have to admit that i love chopsticks and kind of embarrassing and naive way like one of my favorite things about about eating several different kinds of asian food is using chopsticks to eat them i love like chinese noodles with chopsticks i love eating sushi with chopsticks though sometimes i just eat sushi with my hands as as you often do yeah but i love using chopsticks i love it almost as much as i love the food itself but i have found very strangely that i have a psychological block against using chopsticks on ethnic cuisines with which they do not originally a pair so i love using chopsticks and i want any excuse to use them but i've tried to eat spaghetti with them with leggings tornado basil sauce and it does not work it is psychologically revolting but this is ridiculous when you start getting into the deeper history of any nation's cuisine where do you think those those noodles spaghetti and italian spaghetti came from that's a good point came from the east they they came from the land of chopsticks and of course one of the things we're going to get into in this episode is that you know there was a time before widespread chopstick usage in asia there was a time before widespread noodle and dumpling consumption in asia and it's all part of the history of how we eat our food and what we eat right so today's episode is going to be about chopstick technology right so everyone i think is familiar with chopsticks we don't have to really explain these too much but it does allow an amazing amount of precision i remember at an early age i was really impressed by chopsticks in part because you know we would go to little chinese restaurants in the in the states and when my family was living in canada one of my father's co workers Was a Chinese Canadian physician and he would use chopsticks and he would let us use chopsticks, and there was a story he told when he was a child. If you missed behaved his mother would dump a small bowl of uncooked rice out under the table. Give him a pair of chopsticks. And then he would have to move each grain of rice with the chopsticks a back into the bowl, that is amazing because that sounds like a punishment straight out of a fairytale. Doesn't it? that that's like a that's like a cinderella type punishment but chopsticks they are exactly the tool you would want to use to to carry out this task i mean they they're just so precise they even beat a human fingers in many instances if not in precision than at least intact right because it allows you to too much of our our our use of utensils it's about how do you eat the food effectively but also in a way that doesn't insult the people that you're eating with likewise if you're eating hot food which is been popular in human culture it it it it moves you to be able to handle that food without burning your fingers and chopsticks allow you to do that yeah one thing is certain no when i'm using chopsticks and think about i mean just always impressing these are great and i do feel that temptation to want to use them on other foods and really about the only foods that i when i think about it they don't make sense for so much our foods that require a great deal of cutting and carving you know as i'm thinking like if you're eating a steak you would need a knife now i guess you could you could use a knife and shot sticks and that would that would work but for the most part chopsticks are going to are going to get you there with just about any food you know when you mentioned paring knife with chopsticks there at least once was a product called fork and knife chopsticks this there's like a a promo obnoxious comedy promo video that used to go around the internet actually it was a video where hilarity ensues win some caucasian gentlemen is trying to eat something with chopsticks he just keeps dropping it all over himself and other muslim there's got to be a better way and the better way is that the other side of these chopsticks are four kind of knife so you can flip them around see it i i bet you meant that you're using them like chopsticks but then it has a tiny tiny knife on the end flip them around okay no yeah so it stick party in front four connive business and back and actually they would like they would sorta hook together to make hinged chopsticks which are not exactly traditional chopsticks okay well that's not the worst invention i suppose no the the promo videos really obnoxious but the invention is fine though it looks like it's been discontinued or at least from the original seller as far as i could tell chopsticks themselves however of course are still very much in production they have not been discontinued there's no sign of chopsticks going away anytime soon in fact i think i read about a problem with billions of disposable chopsticks being used every year if anything the the big take home is if you like using chopsticks if you find yourself regularly using chopsticks invest in a in a set of chopsticks mobile set that you can carry around and use it home and cut down on the on the disposable chopsticks now where did chopsticks come from well they came from china and And is is we were talking about with our researcher for this program. Scott benjamin. they propped up prior to twelve hundred b._c. though some sources say they've been around for nearly nine thousand years but this is this is cooking utensils away of moving ingredients around and hot walked for instance but it when it comes to the use of chopsticks at the dinner table or as a means of bringing through to your mouth sometimes you see it stated that we're really looking at more four hundred see as kind of a rough very rough time stamp for when it really began to become more popular and begin to spread culturally the idea that these are utensils that should be used to consume food as well now is we'll get into this this is not a very not super firm time stamp it's not like you will not find people eating with chopsticks before that point but this seems to be where the levy really breaks on the idea people do like like to come up with origin stories for things so even when there isn't a clear origin story well that's often part of the fun right is that there's not a there's not an actual inventor but there's a mythic character that had some sort of role in the invention some sort of cultural hero who stole fire from the gods etcetera exactly so we were both looking at a book robert i think you actually read the whole book to yeah it's it's a short read actually something like two hundred and something pages it's book by hugh edward wang that is called chopsticks a cultural and culinary history published in two thousand fifteen from cambridge university press and wine points out that a common chinese legend tells the story of how chopsticks were first invented by dr you founder of the shot dynasty which ruled from twenty one hundred to sixteen hundred b._c. and i've poked around for a couple of versions of this legend basically the story goes like this die you was the figure credited with fight getting the great flood of chinese history and mythology by the use of dredging in the riverbeds and construction of irrigation canals to divert water flow a robber you've talked about the chinese great flood legends on podcast before yeah and you definitely comes up in that episode and because he's a he's a true cultural hero in chinese mythology and the if i'm remembering correctly the the knowledge to to to overcome the flood was was actually stolen or obtained from the gods i think by us father and then you himself is the one who really brings it to the people i think that's correct but so you eventually succeeds in defeating the great flood and this made him emperor and founder of the shadow minister but there are lots of stories and legends about how much he sacrificed personally and how tirelessly he worked on this project to to defeat the floodwaters and one of these legends is the die you had one point heads some sizzling and a walk but he was in such a hurry to fight the flood that he couldn't sit there and wait for the meat to cool down enough to handle an eat so he got a pair of twigs and he used them to pick up the hot pieces of meat and hurry along as meals so we get back to work but clearly this is just a legend but it's still there it does it will straight like the basic clever idea that the novelty of using just some twigs and sticks but using them using found objects but us them in an inventive way that changes the way you do things and this is this is likely exactly how chopsticks emerged in just the the darkness of prehistory is the use of found twigs maybe the tweets within manipulated in some fashion but for the most part just a couple of found sticks that are used to manipulate food inside of a cooking pot or also the use of fire sticks which would just be chopsticks that are used for moving the burning wood or coal around now one thing that i think is interesting about chopsticks that is different from the use of say a fork or knife or even i mean sort of like a spoon but also somewhat different from a spoon is that chopsticks in a way function sort of like extensions of the fingers yeah you know they do a similar pinching action that you can do with your thumb and index finger but they you know they extend the fingers farther they can handle hot stuff without getting greece on the fingers and all that they can reach into soup and pull out noodles they they can do all that kind of stuff but they in a way feel like a more natural extension of the pinching grasping action of the skeleton itself they feel like more like they emerge out of the scheme of the human body than say a knife which you know you don't have a knife in you don't have any sharp fingers you don't have four really there's no stabbing sharp tines on your hand and there's just nothing analogous to a knife and a fork on your body this makes me realize that in gra- granted i i definitely use for can knife more than i use chopsticks and i am not by any means you know a an expert practitioner with chopsticks but i do feel like i am far more likely to bumble and drop fork knife or spoon than i am to bumble and drop my chopsticks like the chopsticks to your point are just more an extension of your body when you're using them now obviously if you're looking for ancient artifacts ancient evidence of chopsticks just standard twigs aren't gonna stick around very well right so you'd you'd be looking probably for chopsticks or indications that chopsticks were made out of other materials right so for instance you will find bronze chopsticks or what are believed to be chopsticks in the tombs of the of the ruins of yin.

"I we should circle back to Magic Johnson's appearance yesterday on the NBA preview show, and also Doc Rivers and his appearance on the NBA pre. Well, let's let's start with magic. He was given kind of a, an open on ramp to just explain his to react to the Baxter homes article, and here's how he started. I've been in business. Thirty five years of have partnerships with some of the biggest companies fortune five hundred companies in in the country. Now. I'm never set in HR person's office in thirty five years, two years with the Lakers. No HR parents Jeanie Buss. Do you think Jeanie Buss will allow me to abuse the employee's? If that was the case with a call me in Joe McCormack would a call me in the lawyer for the Lakers, as well as Dan, the other lawyer, it never happened. Right. I'm a person who brings everybody together, uplift employees. I've never abused a ploy. And I never will. That's not what I'm all about now. So that was him essentially defending himself from the information, the Baxter homes article that cited him as being intimidating bullying and abusive around the Lakers office offices now there was no as you mentioned. There was no follow up question to that. There was no no further probing by by the other people on that panel. Here he is on the idea of him being lazy around the office or actually not being at the office very much. I think it's a better way to, to put this guy when we were there we work well together. But the little things that was going on behind the scene. That bothered me and last, but not least lazy. I have built a six hundred million dollar business. You cannot be lazy going from playing basketball and winning five championships. So I wasn't lazy as a player and I'm not. Lazy as a CEO in business owner, that's never gonna happen. I was brought up in Lansing, Michigan. My father worked for General Motors for thirty years. Never miss a day. Never was late. Do you think he gone? Lau me with six sisters and three brothers. That'd be lazy, now the chance now, I don't think anybody ever accused including Baxter in the article accused magic of being lazy. What they did accuse him of was being in and out. Yeah. And he acknowledged himself last Monday that he was in and out. And he says, genie knew all along that he was going to be in and out because of his other businesses. Right. And I don't think it's a job where that works. And so I almost seems like a word that someone came up with to try and make it an issue. I don't I've never heard anyone accuse magic put those two words in the same sentence magic and lazy. But if you're going to admit you're going to be in and out what you did on I take a a week ago. Then you're demonstrating that there's a lack. Of the level of commitment required to be the president of basketball, operations for an NBA franchise. Here's magic on what he would do differently. I would hire my own people from the beginning. The one thing I didn't get to, to hire everybody that I wanted my Robin, I got put together, I adhered it the Wotton. Yeah. Yeah. So, so I didn't get to hire my own people, and so then then you can judge me. Hey, you can judge me by trays. I made you judge me by I didn't have enough shoot as you. Yes. And, you know, an and here again this actually falls on both genie. And magic there was a full t construction of the front office. Rob was hired. I to be the general manager. Then Magic Johnson was hired to be the president of basketball operations without any prior working experience. Okay. But there's, there's a part of this that doesn't make sense. Okay. That's a major major prerequisite to take him this job, can I guess, hire my own people? Are you telling me magic didn't ask that question upfront that genie told him if you take this job, you have to keep Luke? And you have to keep, rob..

Happy Wednesday, everybody women crush Wednesday here on Jalen and Jacoby, two days away from the NBA finals matchup between the warriors and the raptors board talking about the Lakers because the Lakers are still in the news at yesterday's big news. Drought about the turmoil in the organization, Oguz, what Magic Johnson just happen to be on a finals preview special. Stephen a Smith and we'll at here is what he had to say about the report in the turmoil in the accusation. I'm never set in HR person's office in thirty five years, two years with the Lakers. No Ataur parents Jeanie Buss. Do you think Jeanie Buss will allow me to abuse the employee's? If that was the case with a call me in Joe McCormack would a call me in the lawyer for the Lakers, as well as Dan, the other lawyer, it never happened. Right. I'm a person who brings everybody together, uplift employees. I'm never abused a ploy. And I never will. That's not what I'm all about, as you can tell from what he said he was accused of being harsh manager and being very demanding. And people didn't respond to that. Jalen? What do you think about Irvin? Magic Johnson's comments. I think we shouldn't be leading our show with this, because we should be talking about the NBA finals and the Lakers. Imagine are forcing themselves into the new cycle. And we're falling for it. If the Lakers win a championship guess we're going to be trying to get fitted for ring. Magic Johnson, okay? If they don't win a championship. Everybody's gonna point the finger at a bra. That's all this is. And so while magic has done an amazing job of becoming an entrepreneur, the hall of fame mogul, my idol my mentor. When you see two people disagreeing, you have to take a step back and say, and my favoring the person that I like respect or no more. Or an my jumping to a conclusion rob is new at the job. But people to say a first time Asia. Can't do the job. I. For a first time a G, former aged can't do the job as a GM. You clearly not paying attention to the league because Bob Myers is doing it in Golden State aren't telling him is the person that took the business from the palace in Auburn Hills to downtown research. Okay. So it's incomplete the job that rob is doing. However, let's talk about some of the things they did together that are really important. They brought in the Ron James. Oh, yeah. How about that? Is it? He wanted the best players have done. Time he was the best player on a quickly in the National Basketball. You're able to bring LeBron James. That's pretty good. Right. And I'll give magic a lot of that credit because he was the person in the room closing the deal. Yes, however they worked as a ten magic knew what he was signing up for genie was in power already his sister. But guess what she already higher rock in loot was the coach there. Imagine mentioned that yesterday body that watches this show. Hurt me say this'll be Luke's only year coaching LeBron. So Jalen, why is that? Because when you have an iconic player like LeBron James in a sixteen year you have to get somebody in that he's familiar with, because they don't have time to ways LeBron James gets hurt in Golden State. Everybody panics in the building. We the AD right now. We can't wait to the end of the year. Then all of a sudden you engage with the pelicans LeBron is talking about it publicly. He's drafting team for the all star game talking about it quickly..

Thirty five years of have partnerships with some of the biggest companies fortune five hundred companies in in the country. Now, I've never set in HR person's office in thirty five years, two years with the Lakers. No HR parents. Do you think? Jeanie Buss will allow me to abuse, the employee's. If that was the case. With a call in Joe McCormack would call me in the lawyer for the Lakers, as well as Dan, the other lawyer, it never happened these, right? You work at all these businesses and never been to HR office, he doesn't have a history as you would have heard rumblings of magic being a terrible terrible table. We've all made Magic Johnson has been on the breakfast club. I can't say I know him though, like that a nice guy he was like a nice game. Though, that some of the colleagues at the Lakers had fair and it to feelings of anxiety, severe enough that at least two staffers suffer panic attack. Staffer actually worked there for more than two decades with that team. And once he started working there, she would suffer increasing Zion panic attacks she was prescribed anti anxiety, medication, and actually quit the Lakers after working there and began several weeks of Baresi, there could also be too scared of the big black man syndrome, too, by the way. All right. Because you talk about somebody's tone. Then why why, why would his tone b b b bad? Now the complaints, according to this expose was Magic Johnson was giving these agents too much thirty in particular Rich, Paul, they said, Rich Paul was flying on the private jet with the Lakers, and that's not something that's heard of in that business, and that he was having all kinds of backchannel conversations, including with reporters saying that he didn't like the coach Luke Walton and wanted to have his own person in place. And here's how magic danton responded to that Rich Paul had access to the Lakers, because he had two clients with the Lakers, he called and said, hey, I'm in Brooklyn. We've talked about allow him to fly back with the team. That's the only time he flew with the team because they were it was in Brooklyn and allowed him to do it. That was on me. I loud him to do that. Magic shooter said he could've wrote on my job. But I was riding on the Lakers. Just jump on me. What's the problem that? Oh, well, they say that, that doesn't happen normally everyone while it happens. And then according to telling you went in this expose Kline. It happens. It happened. Okay. And rich did not really make any comment for this when he was asked to comment on it. But I guess one of the issues was it's nerve wracking for the other players, because you feel like he has other clients that he's trying to get into position or any might get cut from the team. So I don't know. But according to expose saying that Palanca Magic Johnson have never done this, that they have no idea how to do it. Let alone how to do it in this space with those guys from clutch sports. And that's what the issue magic alone. All magic is lazy magic. Well, he responds to that as well. But I don't know if we have time to play. Okay. Sorry. All right. Well, make sure you guys we expose and then listen to his interview that he did after came out as you can hear Stephen Smith. Hats speak to him later that day. I mean, that's your rumor report people's choice mixes up next. Let's go with the breakfast club. Good morning breakfast. Clo- your mornings.

Find them near the mouthwash. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain Steph, Lauren vocal bomb here. Have you ever heard of a group of ferrets called a business of ferrets or a collection of jellyfish referred to as a smack of jellyfish? What about shrewdness of apes? We use collective nouns also known as nouns of assemblage to describe all sorts of groups hosts of angels bands of men and shocks of corn. Are commonly heard these days, but the nouns associated with particular groupings of animals can get weird fast because words in their uses are invented by people when we see a bunch of specific construction, you can bet on it being the result of a language fad and sure enough five hundred years ago, nouns of semblage were all the rage. We spoke via Email with Magdalen Jacobs a PHD candidate in the Vanderbilt University department of hearing and speech sciences. She said these are generally terms that came about from upper class hunting culture in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. They're called terms of Venneri, and they're linked to north. And culture and influence into the idea of proper hunting language over one hundred and sixty terms of Venneri are listed in book of Saint Albans, a wildly popular at the time manners guide published in fourteen eighty six the coached the medieval gentlemen through having conversations about hunting falconry fishing sports in heraldry without embarrassing himself at dinner parties. These collective nouns are found in a chapter entitled the companies of beasts and fowls though, some of the terms referred to people rather than animals a bit of a joke. The book Saint Alban's not only described a sleuth of bears and a skulk of FOX's, but also linked women to geese in the collective consciousness by labeling collections of both Gakhal's. According to Jacobs, this is partially because there is a direct linguistic link from the word gaggle to the middle English word for cackle, a collection of wives was labeled and impatience a group of writers on the other hand was called a worship if language tells us how to think about the world we conceive fifteenth. Century European gentleman's social priorities, though. Of course because you can't keep the kids for making up slaying. Once the construction was introduced in the book of Saint Albans, people started coining their own nouns of semblage. Although a lot of these terms slipped into obscurity in the sixteenth century like much of the lingo, we generate on a continual basis. Some of them were adopted into common speech these days. We don't often have occasion to talk about a sneer of butlers or misbelief of portrait painters, but whoever came up with a staff of employee's a congregation of churchgoers or a panel of judges should congratulate themselves on a job well done linguistically. Speaking. A much of the time that correct term for a group of anything. Let us know our collective views on the disposition of whatever we're naming some of the most evocative terms of veteran can be found in birds the book of Saint Albans lists and unkindness of ravens and a murder of crows, definitely creepy negatives. But a charm finches adorable, whoever I referred to a college of cardinals was probably suggesting they thought the group of little red birds looked like a meeting of academics. But why a group of storks is called a mustering is a little less clear. See us Lewis coined the term parliament of als in children's book series, the chronicles of narnia a nod to chaucer's poem, a parliament of fowls. The term is now recognized in dictionaries is being the correct term for a group of AL's. There are meanwhile, few nouns of assemblage for insects mentioned in the book of Saint Albans, we still refer to a swarm of bees which was recorded in the book, but we don't talk as much about a business of flies or a flock of lice. If you've ever heard of a kindle of kittens that comes in the middle English word kindling, which meant to give birth or produce a litter which was originally used only for puppies. But is now commonly used for all kinds baby animals, a group of adult cats might be a glaring or a pounce, but crowd of feral cats is a distraction anyone concerned about the decline of migrating songbirds can understand why that might be. Dogs, which were as much a man's best friend in the middle ages. As today got a lot of play in the book of Saint Albans, hunting hounds alone got several group titles. A cry a mute a pack and a kennel. Some of the most inventive terms of entry are plied to wild animals Jacobs said because they began as hunting terms, the original names from the book of Saint Albans reflected a specific societal disposition towards the animal being hunted. A pride of lions is a good example others that came later such as a wisdom of wombats may be inaccurate. As wombats are rather solitary and don't spend time in groups, others likely referred to qualities of the animals themselves, a business affairs came from a business affair, it's which makes more sense than business. If you've spent any time at all watching ferrets. These days folks continue to make up new nouns of assemblage and bring back old ones. Thus we can talk about April of hedgehogs an obstinacy of buffalo a bloat of hippos and a game of Wales regardless of whether we're planning on hunting them or not.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, bring stuff on Lauren Vogel bomb. And if you can't start your morning without a Cup of Joe, you're certainly not alone. I'm right there with you. But Americans consumption of coffee is up. It's the highest. It's been since two thousand twelve and global exports are up to according to the International Coffee Organisation world coffee exports increased by seventeen percent from October two thousand seventeen to October of two thousand eighteen and overall global shipments were four point two percent higher year over year, clearly coffee has become an important daily ritual for many Americans which begs the question, why are so many coffee lovers? Ordering those drinks using Italian words from lattice Tamaki autos. How did this happen after all coffee doesn't have its roots in Italy legend has it that the great being originated in the Ethiopian plateau and was discovered by goat herder who noticed his goats veritably danced after eating a certain plant. It's spread throughout the Arabian peninsula and adjacent areas before Europeans encountered coffee in the. Seventeenth century, nevertheless, many of the coffee drinks, we know today and popularized by Starbucks more on that in a minute do originate in Italy, and it has everything to do with the invention of the Espresso machine. Espresso doesn't refer to a particular type of coffee bean. It's actually a coffee preparation method, and it was first developed in Italy in the nineteenth century because brewed coffee could take up to five minutes to make coffee lovers. Sada way to shorten the time between ordering and drinking the first Espresso machines were bulky and difficult, but by the early twentieth century Milanese manufacturer Luigi bizarre had developed a single shot Espresso the produced one Cup of coffee in seconds, though. It did take a while for the machines to improve in terms of ease of use and flavor of the coffee produced we spoke with Paul Bassett former world barista champion, he said, the Espresso machine kind of revolutionized coffee to some extent. Everything was centered around the way Espresso was made the way it was consumed as well, he explained that with the Espresso machine. Coffee could be made on. The spur of the moment and was intended to be drunk immediately after being served typically standing at a bar Italian coffee culture grew and Espresso as we know it today became popular in Italy and France in the nineteen thirties, the nineteen fifties beatnik movement and its coffeehouse culture launched Espresso craze in the United States. We also spoke with Mike Ferguson with OEM specialty coffee, he explained early in the specialty coffee movement authenticity meant Italian in the nineteen eighties. Many if not most coffee houses had Italian names and adopted as much Italian as possible into their cafe menu. So the trend continued the coffee drinks, they served also retained their -talian nomenclature because they were specifically made with Espresso the names referred to what is added to the Espresso, for example. But the word Mark Jato into Google translate and you'll get stained or spotted so the drink name refers to the spot of milk that stains the Espresso Bassett said, I think fundamentally Espresso is directly linked to Italy as beverage and the way it's part of their culture. It's been transported all around the world and reinterpreted despite reinterpretation, the drinks with talion names have an Espresso base. And typically, some kind of milk added. For example, a cafe latte usually just called a lot in the United States consists of Espresso milk and milk foam. It's not brewed coffee with milk. Although that's the literal translation to be fair ordering an Espresso with milk and milk foam doesn't sound as catchy the distinction between Espresso and brewed coffee is important consider the Americano which was named for Americans in Italy who sought a drink. Similar to the brood or filtered coffee. They drink at home because it emerged in Italy and is made by adding water to Espresso, it retains its talion title. So this answers the question about coffee drink names. But what about Starbucks use of sizes like 'Grande inventing, which are also talion words, this sizing nomenclature short tall and 'Grande was introduced when ill Nali opened its doors in one thousand nine hundred six and the venue size came in the early nineties ill. Denali was the name of the coffee houses launched by Starbucks chairman emeritus Howard Schultz during his mid eighties hiatus from the company the company's website states. That sheltered been quote captivated with talion coffee bars and the romance of the coffee experience a tradition. He wanted to bring to the United States he returned to Starbucks and purchase the company in one thousand nine hundred seven and that branding now extends to fo- Italian product names, like the Frappuccino, which is a trademarked name and not actually Italian word by the way bonus back to the episode the caffeine in coffee that perks.

Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Bogle bond here. An unsolved mystery can drive people crazy and the fate of the first English settlers ever to establish a colony in the new world ruin oak is a puzzle that will probably never be entirely solved. But it doesn't keep people from trying in July. Fifteen eighty seven a ship carrying ninety men. Seventeen women and eleven children landed on Roanoke island on the Outer Banks of modern day North Carolina a year before when these site was discovered. Fifteen men had volunteered to stay and hold down the proverbial fort, but they were nowhere to be found. So the one hundred and eighteen colonists disembarked and said about carbon colony out of the wilderness. There's much excitement when Eleanor dare the daughter of leader John White gave birth to the first English baby. Born in the new world and named her Virginia after time John White left, the settlers to return to England telling them he'd be back within the year with fresh supplies. However, England's war with Spain slowed the process considerably, and nobody was able to check on the settlement again. Until fifteen ninety when white returned his daughter granddaughter and everyone else was gone. They had dismantled the buildings carved the word Kroto in into a tree. The name of the friendly native American tribe on a nearby island and vanished. There was no sign of the cross white had told them to carve on a tree if they had left under duress. A frankly white didn't look very hard for his daughter and granddaughter before heading back to England for centuries. The story of the lost colony of Roanoke seemed pretty cut and dried to most historians. The settlers went to live with a Kroto and tribe. Whether they stayed there not nobody could say the thing they could say is that no definitive sign of any of the one hundred eighteen colonists was ever found despite rumors in the later established Jamestown colony of massacres and men wearing European clothes deep in the wilderness. No definitive sign that is until more than three centuries later when in nineteen thirty seven a produce dealer from California named L E Helmand showed up at Emory University in Atlanta with a stone. He found while hunting hickory nuts and recently cleared, North Carolina swamp, some fifty miles or eighty kilometers inland of Roanoke island. It was inscribed with a message. He wanted the experts at Emory to decipher turns out, the carved stone told story allegedly written by whites daughter Eleanor. The colonists. Endured two years of only misery and war after her father left for England ending with half. The settlers killed in armed combat and many of the others, including eleanor's husband daughter, slaughtered when a spiritual leader of the tribe. They lived with warned that the presence of the English. Settlers was angering the spirits, according to the stone only six men and one woman escaped. The stone was found to be offended by the experts at the time. It seems legitimate and better still it satisfied. Everyone's thirst foreclosure around to this dusty old riddle the story captured the imagination of the entire country and Emory professor Haywood J Pearce junior published a paper describing the stone in the refutable journal of southern history in nineteen thirty eight. But soon the plausibility of the stone came into question, we spoke with John Bence archivist at the rose library at Emory University. He said Emory became suspicious of Hammond after some professors and administrators traveled with him to Eden to North Carolina where he found the stone. The search for the original location of the stone was fruitless this attitude. The growing list of details about Hammond's discovery that we're hard to corroborate Emory had someone in California look into Hammond, but couldn't find much more than an address after Pierce and his father another academic paid him. And for the first stone and offered a five hundred dollar reward for any additional stones people might find. You can imagine. How many dare stones came out of the woodwork the pierces paid a man named Bill Eberhardt a stonecutter from Fulton County Georgia two thousand dollars for forty two forgeries. He brought them these stones had Eleanor marrying a Cherokee chief giving birth to another daughter named Agnes and eventually dying in a cave in Georgia. In April of nineteen forty one these Saturday Evening Post ran an expose on. The dare stones dismissing them all as forgeries citing an acronym. Stick language, and consistency of spelling that was unheard of at the time the Pierce's career suffered and the dare stones were stuffed in a basement at the father's university an embarrassment to everyone involved, but every so often academic interest turns again to the show on Riverstone. The original dare stone found by him. And in that North Carolina swamp, it's made of different rock than the others. A bright white quartzite interior and dark exterior that would have made a good choice for Eleanor dares missive to her father and in the nineteen thirties. The patina on the stone would have been difficult to chemically replicate. In addition. It doesn't contain the anachronistic language of the other stones some experts have determined. The only problem might be an Eleanor dares. Sign off the initials e WD, which would not have been typical signature in these sixth century. Many experts still dismissed the town Riverstone as an obvious phony. But it's possible that new research into Lisbeth in a pig Raphy chemical analysis and other rocket scriptures of the time period.
