Can you imagine like ferret spa that they go to a while. They're like God is oatmeal bath so nice. I'm sure there's a reason why ferrets eat oatmeal bats anyway. She doesn't always clean the tub out after their bads oatmeal dust in the bottom of the TUB and if I don't check before I shower it makes the bottom of the TUB slimy and smelling like a retirement home <music>. I'm a non confrontational person. So how do I broach this. This is a great time to take a person you adore and have a good relationship with an experiment with a little bit of conflict just a tiny bit where you say Hey Bruni couple things I do fair. It's half to take oatmeal. No no no no now first off. I love your ferrets and I love them and I love them and I and I could go that far. I want you to take care of them. MM-HMM FIRST OFF. I tolerate your favorites and I know that you of them. There's no reason to be dishonest. I know that you love your ferrets. I want them to be healthy. I want you to take care of them but when I shower after the ferrets have bathed in our only tub I often feel really gross for a variety of reasons that I would imagine you can manger as is dangerous.

Absolutely it's dangerous and that's why I believe that if you've got a tub you should take a bath but not Vicky but but only there's one exception to that. There's not a lot aww bathtubs that I wouldn't take a bath in but I have to say that. If I was living in Vicki's house I would probably be a shower person dear John and Hank.

Please don't record that audio music back against us. Make sure it's properly Palu were playing the role of each other. Yeah. Have you ever pulled a April Fools prank on somebody EM when I was a kid? I used to do it to my parents all the time and that's much as an adult. I not so much either. I witnessed one that was hysterical though, as a couple of years ago is coming out of my office. And there's these two gals out on VW bug out in front of my office on the street, and they're taking post it notes, and they posted every inch of this BWI bug with post it notes, the bumpers the wheels. The the windshields the KOMO imagine being that person golfer. Well, it was April Fools. So you I guess you had a story for life. Looks like out here in the newsroom. Somebody's fixing up. Kevin clean space here with a little April. Yeah. Well, I saw somebody with a screwdriver. They were unscrewing all the bolts till just the very edgy of collapse. So good luck. Kevin. When you come in today. Speak careful out there, so April first, wow. What a fun weekend of sports. Of course, we had golf down in Austin, Texas, where Tiger Woods was in it until well Saturday morning. We have the NC double A tournament. John upsets out there. Some big upsets Duke the number one team in the tournament. Getting knocked out. We had the Saint Louis blues who have secured their playoff spot or playing tonight against the Colorado Avalanche still have a chance to be the first place. Seconds probably more likely still I guess two points behind the Nashville predators that would be important because the second and third place teams face each other in the first round. And if the blues surpass, the predators, they'll have the home ice advantage for out of the seven games played here in Saint Louis at enterprise center, and that would be that would be big, man. The cardinals kicked off their season at the end of the weekend in through the weekend. They went one and three against Milwaukee. Look at the one encouraging thing is is they are hitting. They are scoring some runs. Lots of strike outs. We'll talk about that. The starting pitching seems to have been really solid. Michael walk pitching incredible yesterday. Bullpen looking like it's going to be a problem. Could you know Indra? Miller's been in twice. He's the only left-hander we've got the bullpen. And he's the guy that's supposed to come in. And put out the fire, you know, and he's given up runs in both of his appearances. So yesterday was was troubling that way. And and cardinals are hitting. They're hitting home runs. Hit nine of them over the four days, Paul Goldschmidt, four by himself, which is for now, which would be amazing except that Christian yelich the brewers hit four over the four-game series. And that guy was a one man wrecking crew cardinals walk. It did look good yesterday. The the other starters gave up a lot of home runs and didn't get very deep into the games. So you know, it's it's early in remains to be seen. But I I guess my biggest concern too would be a lot of strikeouts, which I get it. That's baseball now but forty seven strikeouts. The cardinals over four games cardinal cardinals today on kmox. You can hear them right here at noon taking on the Pittsburgh Pirates. This'll be their second of three opening days.

Excellent time to like change, the house mid level World War like you know, what there's a log going on right now. So let's look inward and reheat organize. Let's Marie condo.

So we have four hundred and thirty five representatives. Yes. Based off of the nineteen ten census since. Yes. The nineteen. One nine one zero nine one zero census this was even before the first World War. Why are we still doing this?

So right now, we have two hundred hundred five Democrats have the majority in the house, and we have one hundred ninety seven Republicans and three vacancies can seize. Yeah. Three two of them are North Carolina. Yeah. Which is very interesting. So one is North Carolina third districts the Representative passed away. Yep. Very recently case without vacancy. I get right. And then the North Carolina the second North Carolina the ninth district. So this Representative this is this is this is the shit show where they tried to steal the seat. This person's no longer running right now, he's not running any dropped out. I was and then people are like skews me. Ham off you can't do that. So they're reelecting in this year.

Dawn Powell's diary issues. This great writer, and it is really interesting to read someone's diary, it feels incredibly invasive even though Don pal has been dead for quite a while. And at the end of her life said that she wanted her diaries to be published. It still feels like, wow, I can't believe that. I am allowed to read these things about a stranger. So try to include that kind of that kind of the juicy stuff. That's my advice. Last third of the Fayed is just what other juiciest stuff of the day. Right. Yeah. Just like at the bottom third.

I matched with someone on a dating app and after chatting for a bit we decided to go on a date. But shortly thereafter, I got sick. And when I told him he told me to get back to him. If I wanted to go out once I felt better. Well, it's been several weeks. And it turns out I have mono, which is why I felt so terrible this whole time, and I'll be better soon and no longer contagious. And I want to let him know. So he doesn't forget about me. But I'm worried that the connotations of the disease will. Okay. Because it's the kissing disease. Okay. I am not familiar with these connotations of mono. I have always understood it to be just a really bad viral illness that sometimes attacks your spleen, but apparently it has sexually transmitted vibes. Yeah. I'll I will. I will say that I got mono and high school completely without any fun way of contracting. It I contracted it in the normal someone spat into the air and it landed on my tongue way. Yeah.

John, please, let's have a deer Hanke John gathering at the olive garden intend to chill. I to say that I have no interest in going to all garden in the United Kingdom would be dramatic. I can't even bring myself to go to the olive garden that's a quarter mile from my house. But as I was saying the point I was trying to make sometimes you just have to many people. And so you just like. Sometimes it's just arbitrary, and it's not about you. But here's what I would say is if you're coming back, and you're going to reintegrate with an old friend group, and you want to hang out with your friends. Maybe the best way to do that is to reach to one of them. Specifically and say, hey, I want to hang out just the two of us. And then that person will become your your spokesperson, the friend group potential. I think that's a little bit conniving. I think that you could just text with your friends and say I want to hang out and not not necessarily specify that. It's just the two of us. But just by saying I wanna hang out. It helps to know though. Yeah. Yeah. I wanna hang out with you too. I miss you. And and try to take the initiative, and that is something that in general with friendships and with like social. Existence that it when you are young when you're like high school age, it's almost like no one ever does that like the the social experiences just happened somehow. But then once you're once you get into your twenties you have to like make it happen. You have to work for it in order to get people together and have a good time. And it doesn't feel as natural. But it is important. Yeah. It's good practice for the future. Anyway, I don't think that you should take this super personally, I know that that's hard rang tickly. But it's one of those situations that ninety nine percent of the time. It's not about you. Yep. Of course, one percent of the time. It is you olive garden was founded Italy. I'm just going to say Italy in Orlando, Florida. Of course, it was we when we were two and five respectively like just after you and. Lando. I garden with founded I'm older than all garden, you're older than garden. Congratulations. I definitely feel like olive garden has existed my whole life.

But I'm worried about how this will impact my status in the coming robot apocalypse following the takeover from our mechanical overlords. Do you think the robot people will have a sort of religious reverence and respect for me as a kind of life giving entity or do you think the robots will vilify me for dragging them into this world, any guidance for my future in programming is appreciated trapped in a cage, nNcholas, oh, I had not thought of whether the artificial intelligence will resent us for making them exist in.

The Vicki your Yuri, you got to you got to this is a great time to take a person you adore and have a good relationship with an experiment with a little bit of conflict just a tiny bit. Where you say, hey, roomy couple things. I do fair it's half to take oatmeal. No, no, no. No, no. I I love your favorites. And I love them. And I love them when I on them, and I could go that far I want you to take care of them. First off I tolerate your favorites. And I know that you of them no reason to be dishonest. I know that you of your favorites. I want them to be healthy. I want you to take great care of them. But when I shower after the fair, it's of bathed in our only tub. I often feel really gross for a variety of reasons that I would imagine you can major it's dangerous. You got to like a slippery tub is people die. Absolutely. It's dangerous. That's why I believe that. If you've got a tub, you should take a bath. But not Vicky. But but only there's one exception to that. There's not a lot of bad stoves that I wouldn't take a bath in. But I have to say that if I was living in Vicki's house. I would probably be a shower person. Yeah. You just going to have to have a small confrontation. Because really what you're looking for. Here is not a huge shift in behavior you're looking for. Hey, after the ferrets get out of the tub, can you wipe it down really carefully because you just put to fair it's inside of our only shower container. And if they react negatively to that. Then I can't imagine that they will. Vicki I think gonna find you've gotta have the confrontation though, because a this is a health issue and the safety issue and be it is a big big problem. I usually try to minimize the how big a problem these things are, but this seems to me like a proper crisis. All right, John this next question comes from sage who asks deer Hanke John last week. I was doing my homework, and this person came up to me and started talking and it was a bit annoying. But I tried to be friendly handed up asking for my Snapchat. And I gave it to him. I asked if he wanted to be his friend, and I said, okay, because what else was I going to say he's been talking to me on Snapchat and wants to hang out sometime. He called me one of his best friends. He is pretty cool person. But I really don't want to be friends with them partially because he's a lot older than me. And I don't think he knows how old I am. I'm sixteen. How do I stop being friends with him? I've considered not answering texts..

And can you be in those meetings? Can you like make a reason for yourself to be in a meeting like that or and also just accepting that like it's gonna take a while for you to become a part of into understand the culture and values of the place where you work, and that is just a part of being new at a place and and six months is a pretty actually pretty short time to try to get all that done in. So don't, you know, don't put too much pressure on yourself. If it doesn't feel like at the end of the six months, like you've become like an intrinsic part of the company because it does take a while your I would focus on being helpful. I think that's by far the biggest thing you can do in an internship is crushed the internship part of the internship and the interpersonal stuff should accompany that rather. Than the interpersonal stuff leading it. Right. And I think there might be sometimes a little bit too much in our minds. We think like, oh, I'm like. I'm gonna keep my job because everyone likes me, but that's not really how it works, especially sort of modern day business like you keep your job because you're doing a good job of it. All right.

I'm going to screen shot the text to my sister's proving that I remembered and the date is date. Now, they'll have the time next to the text. Right. Well, they have the date. Yes. Perfect. All right there. We all have iphones. I know. Sure. Yeah. I'm not sensitive. I am I. Following clear investor coaching Arlene Brown here with me in the studio today. All right. So. All right. So. Let's see what a what let's talk about annuities. What are you saying? Let's just to gain. I I wanna have you seen the article in digiorno of science journal science say that there's no limit to human human life span. Why? Yes. And then of course, there's this new saying that other MIT has issued a news. The big news that they have already reversed. The study reversing the age of mice. Oh, that's like oh my goodness. I was thinking they reversed the age of mice. So. Did you just about anything that that mouse is gonna die? So what's gonna do with our lifetime income happens? When somebody steps on the mouse. It's over somewhat. What negoti sorry? Go ahead. Uh-huh. So if there is no limit to life span. Yeah. And. I'm not I'm not buying the premise though. But if I go ahead, and we are reversing and there's already studies or medicine that is trying to reverse the age of aids. This is interesting. And then so now, I'm thinking, oh my goodness. And then you hear that most annuity some newest companies like Ameriprise voyeur. Why John Hanke they have sold their getting out of the annuity business. Just like some of the long term care, aren't they? Really? Yes. Now, I know that the German insurers were absolutely fit to be tied and scared to death about the annuity business because of the fact that they had the negative interest rates and they were wondering if. Yes, they're mispricing. So you think you think that's going on with some of the the the fixed index annuity the fourth issuer of fixed index annuity just sold four billion dollars worth of annuity business. Really? Yes. So think about what's gonna do. Okay. Now. Arlene, this this is mind blowing I had not seen this. So so so in essence, what you're saying the reason they're getting out of because well longevity is increasing. There's no question about it. They're actually finding ways to keep people alive a whole lot longer, and the will the live a lot of people say, well, you wanna fire on my father used to say that if I ever get that bad, you know, just Shuping guess old people don't die anymore. They just get older with a do Di come. Good night. But. They do have a will to continue on even though their health is is bad. But they would still be paying reserves her. Yeah, they still be rice. And if that's mis-priced there. So so in essence what Arlene saying is let's say that you give an insurance company. A hundred thousand dollars and at the time that they issue a product you have a ten year life expectancy, and they give you one hundred thousand you give them one hundred thousand dollars. They're going to pay you ten thousand dollars a year for ten years. That's what they're figuring out. Now, they figure a couple people will only live for two years, and they pay twenty grand out. It's over they figure that a few people are going to live eighteen years. And you know, the average between the two people that I just gave an example the one that's two years alumnus eighteen years and gets them to where they're they're. Okay. If both people two hundred thousand dollars each two hundred thousand dollars there the insurance company comes out with a prophet. But basically what Arlene saying is that in effect? If people buy the product a new at ties, and then all of a sudden, they're not living ten years or two years or eighteen years. They're living twenty years or thirty years thirty years insurance. Companies sitting there going we don't have a printing press. You know to print money for the checks. What happens? That's a really interesting premise. So if you are if you have an annuity policy, you you need to look into that. Because now I'm like Hartford has been off spin off there are fern. So come to think of that if they are selling it the old this block of business selling it to whoever. Yeah, they're getting rid of the risk off their boss, whoever. Now think about the credit quality of the new company grew point point. Yes, simply because now they've got the liability that the other company got rid of and what if it's an international company. Yeah. Well, it has degraded quality and and requirements. Reserve requirements. Yes. Are do they have reserve requirements? So in English charleen just said 'cause sometimes she'll talk over your head companies have to keep a bunch of money on the sidelines to pay claims. So they have to keep money instead of going in reinvesting all the money. They gotta keep some in in claims. Yeah. That's that's a great point. Yeah. Now what now? Well, if you are if you have a policy, then what would be the recourse of of the new company, well, guess what to increase the contract fees, and how can they legally do that? Because now they go back to the insurance commission. Well, no, not well. Good. The easiest way to do this. That's the reason why when they when you look at the policy, and it says, okay? So you think just decrease the guaranteed inch down to the guaranteed interest rate. Well, no, it's the contract fees. You do. Point four five point four or five to one point nine five. That's the range rates. Yeah. That's what they go. They are going to come back and give you. Hi. Yes. Maximum. And or because I saw this Arlene back when I was in the life insurance business we were selling life insurance policies, and and let's talk about this this morning to to a couple, and and we were talking about how. Oh, yeah. I remember the days when interest rates at the banks were sixteen percent. And I said, oh, yeah. Said we had life insurance policies and the managers are telling us to project a twelve percent interest rate. It was insane. Well, because the market interest rates were that high. This will you know, the government limits us we can't show any higher than a twelve percent rate. And we're like, we didn't know any better. Oh, okay. Hibs manager. He's telling me what to do. I know they're they're basically telling us what to sell out there in the marketplace, I'm working for a big big company investment company. And of course, what happens if the interest rates went down will they had guaranteed interest rates on the contracts for percent. That's exactly right or percent. And what happens when interest rates went below four percent. What? Now, we've got an increase the expenses because you can't lower the interest rate anymore. Even though you're only earning two percent on the money this lent back out since you can't lower it. What do you do? What's an insurance company to do increase the expenses? Now, how did you do that? Well, maybe you have it in the contract you can increase it. And if you can't increase it any more than that, you go to the insurance the ranges are. That's right. That's right. And if you can't if you're at the top of the range, then you go to the insurance Commissioner and say, hey, guys, we're going to be out of business if we don't do this. And then commissioned looks at and go. Yeah, you're going to be out of business here you've been granted the ability to increase your rates, and you know, what they it's easy because you know, what it it's. It is stipulated in the policy. That's the maximum fee. They can charge right, right? So easy, peasy Arlene. That's absolutely fascinating. That that's fascinating that that's that's what's going on. Because there's a big push right now. There was an article that I was reading in financial advising who uses annuities who's doesn't. And you don't a lot of these articles. Come from the perspective of we think people should be annuity. Ising we think people should be doing this. And you've got people in the government saying this. And and you know, what's well. Whether there were there were Evan made a good point about that. Who's one of the biggest purchases government bonds the government? Yeah. You know, who are the biggest buyers of these things, you know, the insurance companies, right? The government issues bonds the insurance companies by it, and therefore, you know, getting more business to the insurance companies only makes sense. You know that they that they would want to do to do that. What were you about Sam? Sorry. No. And then you you hear about this. This Brent, our bleeding brilliant Golders. What did you say? Those two words together. Go in congress. He won the many of them are brilliant. The band social security. No right now social security. They reading the the trustees reported probably not. Only twenty thirty four. Yeah. They would social security would only be pay could only be pay paying seventy five percent of the benefits of what's gonna do with with us. Now, we are living longer. Right. There's there's another. That's another good point. All of a sudden. Expand it and now we're living. Yeah. I mean, you got a headache. Give me a headache. Very nice.

No. And it's a stupid idea. I mean, look this is a this country is built on capitalism. And if you haven't checked lately, it's doing quite well right now, the last thing we need is some socialist coming in and then crippling our companies and businesses that are thriving and providing family supporting jobs for millions of Americans, bad ideas. Going anywhere. John's right. It's not going to move forward. I actually think that it's a good conversation that we're having and I'd like us to Mark the Tate, Chris my held bringing this back because when these financial companies do collapse, and they come to the government with their handout John same. We have to do it. I want to point out that this is we've literally this once ready. We're going to do it again. We've we've made it even easier for these people to get big and do things. You know, and you all are forcing everybody out of any type of social security pensions have gone away. Everybody's supposed to invest. But when these clowns go and ruin our money, we're the ones who will be left holding the bag. I I got no problem. If you go bankrupt you go bankrupt. I don't think the government should be bailing out private businesses. And I also don't think the government should be constricting or restrict. Thank god. The we did bail them out last time. Otherwise, we'd be in the midst of the great depression. I'm not so sure about that come on. You see what will how can you even say that the world almost came to an end off of these companies having unfettered access to do whatever they want with no regulation, and they did it, and they were lying, and it was all chasing, the almighty dollar, which is the true deity that runs the Republican party. Jason the dollar is what makes this economy work and a little bit of the whole system of capitalism is built on the idea that people are greedy. And and it is that process of pursuing wealth that creates a dynamism that creates a growing economy. It's what makes this country capitalism is the best economic system ever devised in the history of humankind period. The end all those books that they are those movies. They came out with though after the last economic collapse worried to bail, everybody out do you ever watch those and think oh my God.

The idea of incentivising life insurance policy holders to stay fit makes a lot of sense, but. What happens when you get hurt? What happens within you have a life event. What happens when you don't get your steps in in what? Delus- your policy. This to me is very, very scary that. In the they sell insurance. They have for many, many years where you would be required to get physical. Have your blood checked have a baseline nowhere. You're at from a health, and then they have a profile and they have a pretty good idea when you're going to die and they sell you an insurance policy such based upon your risk in the hell. Upon the time you get a life insurance policy, but now Ohno they don't care. They want you to be tied to a fitness device.
