John joubert kidnapped twelve year old. Christopher walden as he walked to school. John threatened. The boy with a knife guided him into his car then drove off unseen or so. He thought a woman will call gladys was down the street and watched a decent amount of the interaction. Take place while she hadn't seen the knife that john was secretly pushing into christopher's back. She knew something was off about the exchange but even though thirteen year old danny joe abberley had been abducted from the same area just a couple months earlier gladys couldn't imagine the criminal would strike in the same place twice so after dwelling on it for a few minutes gladys decided that she'd probably witnessed a parent scolding child. Meanwhile john sped down the road with christopher. He drove a few miles away toward a secluded wooded area. Christopher cried the hallway there so much so that john considered letting the boy go. Weeping wasn't a part of johns fantasy and it was starting to ruin the excitement for him. But john knew that the boy would tell someone about him. He imagined what might happen to him how he'd go to prison and perhaps even be executed. No he couldn't risk it so john plowed ahead. He parked the car check to make sure they were alone. Then ordered christopher to get out they walked across the snow along some railroad tracks until they were farther away from the road then. John told christopher to take off his clothes and lie down on his back. That's when john started to strangle the young boy. Then when christopher struggled against him. John took out his knife stabbed him a couple of times and slashed his throat at some point during the attack christopher lost consciousness. And here's where john deviated from his usual routine. Instead of biting down onto the boy or leaving him altogether he began to carve an image into christopher stomach. It was a plant complete with a stem and seven leaves. He was developing a new signature according to robert k. wrestler and his fellow f. b. i. Profiler roy hazelwood ritual and signature actions helped stoke the fantasy in the killer's mind. Some of the may have been dreaming about their ritual or signature for years before acting it out as such as possible that john's rituals were born of his fantasy of murdering and eating his babysitter. The plant carving suggests that his fantasies were evolving. Perhaps after so many years. The babysitter daydream wasn't quite doing it for him anymore and he had started to dwell on something new but it seems. This new process exhausted. John both physically and emotionally when he was finished with christopher john trekked slowly back to his car then he drove back to his barracks and once again went to sleep later. That afternoon when christopher's parents discovered that he'd never made it to school. They reported him missing. And it wasn't long before gladys came forward to tell police what she'd seen a boy who matched christopher's description being led into a car by short slim white man as gladys worked with a sketch artist. Search parties formed throughout the county but christopher was found through a different kind of exploration on december fifth of pheasant hunters stumbled upon the body while looking for game after three days and a recent snowstorm. Christopher's body was frozen stiff. His clothes and schoolbooks were lying next to him. Based on the mo- investigators guests the culprit was the same person. Who'd murdered danny joe. So after collecting all the evidence they could authorities got to work. They updated the original sketch with gladys's contribution and new posters were plastered all over town. The posters were also hung all over the air force base. Christopher's father was a military officer and he wanted to make sure everyone in the area was on the lookout for his son's killer and everyone was except of course for the murderer himself. John must have made a concentrated effort to ignore the especially since they were posted in areas that he likely frequented but if that may john nervous he never let on he behaved normally while at work and hanging around the base off the clock john was itching to take another life perhaps because his tan car had already been noted by police john rented a different vehicle then lurked in the shadows near local schools looking for his next target on the morning of january. Eleventh nineteen eighty-four. John drove to the aldgate united methodist church and pulled slowly to a stop next to the building inside. Teachers were preparing for a preschool class. And john watched from his car thinking.

"In his book. Whoever fights monsters. Fbi profiler robert k. wrestler discusses pre-crime situational stressors and how they encourage organized killers to act on their darkest. Impulses wrestler explains that organized killers are usually moved to action by external factors as opposed to their own mental illness. Robert interviewed john joubert for his research and cites him as an example of an organized. Serial killer affected by pre-crime stressors. His fantasies started due to the stress of his parents divorce. His slashings began after the loss of his childhood friend. His first murder was a result of his flunking out of college. Robert asserts that pre-crime stressors can often be thought of as the straw that breaks the camel's back. It's not that organized killers don't have something askew mentally. They very well might act without the stressor present but when it occurs it serves the same purpose as gasoline thrown on a fire. The need to kill becomes irrepressible and the murderer has no choice but to follow through. This was exactly the case for john when anthony left his sadness and anger became untenable and he felt a powerful urge to soothe himself. He began driving around bellevue. Just before. Dawn stewing in his own sorrow. Almost no one was out and about at that time of day. In fact the only people john saul regularly were the local newspaper. Delivery boys a thirteen year. Old named danny joe emberley and his brother who will call mark. John followed the boys around watching them as they biked from house to house tossing the omaha world herald onto porches and lawns. Mark noticed that a man and a ten car seemed to be following them. Everybody wasn't certain unfortunately he didn't say anything about it to anyone on september. Eighteenth nineteen eighty three. John took advantage of that silence early that morning. John parked at the local convenience store and waited for danny joe to pick up his usual stack of papers. Then he watched as the boy set off on his bicycle. While danny joe was making his fourth delivery. John approached him with a knife. He covered the boy's mouth with his hand and instructed him to walk with him back to his car when they reached the ten. Chevy john told danny joe to lie down on his stomach and not make any noise then. John tied his hands and feet behind his back and placed a piece of tape over his mouth afterwards. John put danny joe in the trunk and drove off. John stopped at a remote cornfield several miles away. He took downey joe out of the trunk and carried them away from the road where they'd be hidden among the stocks there. He untied the boys hanson feet. And order danny. Joe to address when he was down to his underwear john bound. Danny joe's feet back up. Then he pulled out his knife and stabbed the boy several times in the back and chest and watched him die when the boy was still he stabbed and slashed the body several times just to make sure while he stood over the corpse john was reminded of his ultimate fantasy. He remembered how good it fell to bite down on ricky stetson flesh and though it had been a risky move he hadn't been caught so in john's mind it was safe to try again. He bit down on. Danny joe in several places savouring the taste of blood when he had his fill. He slashed up each of the marks with his knife to disguise them just like before then. He stopped through the corn husks back to his car and drove off when he returned to the air force base. He calmly walked into. The barracks laid down on his bunk and took a nap. Meanwhile danny joe's parents were frantic. They'd reported missing a few hours after his abduction and police immediately launched an investigation. It took them three days but they eventually found his corpse. Needless to say investigators were horrified. The grisly nature of the murder put them on high alert and officers scoured the crime scene. But besides the unique rope. John used to restrain danny joe. They didn't have much evidence to work with. Of course they did have a description. Danny joe's brother mark had seen jon following them. He worked with his sketch artists to capture his image and the authorities plastered the picture. All over bellevue frustratingly. It didn't bring in any new leads. So police focused their attention on registered sex offenders and reported pedophile in the area. The sarpi county sheriff also made please to the community to come forward with information but it seemed. No one had anything to say. Eventually danny joe's case grew cold and the memory of the murder gradually faded from locals collective memory however john couldn't stop thinking about danny joe the thrill he got from the kill was to intoxicating eddie wanted to feel it again but he knew better than to act on his impulses. Police were still on the lookout for a young man stalking boys so he curbed his fantasies for a bit and bided his time by pouring over detective magazines in his bunk. John loved the magazines because they taught him about mistakes. Other killers had made he also enjoyed the pictures that accompanied the articles ones that featured corpses. The photos aroused him and made him excited about killing again for months. These magazines satisfied john but by the end of november he needed more and quietly started stalking young boys again whether it was because he felt cocky or because he already knew the area. Well we'll never know but returned to the same general area where he'd kidnapped danny joe and now instead of getting up at dawn john ventured out a little bit later in the morning and watched groups of children as they made their way to school. He sussed out which boys traveled in groups and which ones made the track solo. Eventually he's zeroed in on one on the morning of december. Second nineteen eighty-three. John followed twelve year old. Christopher walden along his route to school after making sure they were alone. John parked his car and strolled over to the boy.

"Charles baggage would dream up the analytical engine which most people agree was the first automatic digital computer famously. His friend at a lovelace was considering badges computer when she published what was basically the first computer program now. The actual computer wouldn't be created during their lifetimes but they're well planned ideas. We're enough to change the world. Don't get me wrong. You wouldn't have been able to play minecraft or among us or even solitaire on a computer like this or anything but it was a pretty radical idea and like many young people who go on to do great things. Babich was inspired by some pretty creative people. One man in particular comes crashing into mind when he was a young boy badges mother wishing to nurture his curiosity and fascination with mechanical things took him to visit a short older and quite unusual man. John joseph merlin. Now if you live in england and your name is merlin people might expect you to be some sort of wizard and while this merlin contrast spells or shape shift and he had certainly never counseled any mythical kings like king arthur. He was a wizard in his own ways. By this time he was approaching the end of his life but he had remained pretty famous around england for decades. You have a hard time finding a man who had created quite so many unusual inventions. And you'd also have a hard time finding a man who knew how to make an entrance and get noticed in quite the way that merlin could first off. He was an inventor of automata but he was also one of the most prolific inventors in all of europe. If you've listened to our episode mechanical monsters you probably recall the basics of what goes into an automaton. If you haven't listened to that episode well. It is our most popular so consider this an invitation in short an automaton is a mechanical device often resembling a living creature which through years and finely tuned pieces can create movements that mimic something like life. Think of it like an early robot. They were wildly popular at the time and they didn't even really do anything they were just like cool to look at in some ways. People never change and they love good amusement and automata were the pinnacle of impressive amusement in the seventeen. Hundreds one of merlin's earliest creations was a collaboration with a mentor of his. It was called the silver swan and unlike many of the automata from the seventeen hundreds. This one still works the shiny. Silver swan bobs. Its head on. Its long neck cranes over its shoulders and ultimately catches a fish which it appears to swallow before nestling back into its wing to watch it now and consider all of the mechanical movements and all the time spent making each articulated piece still amazing in the seventeen hundreds it would have been mind blowing and these sorts of things. Slow badges young mind during this. Visit the world changer. To be sought some of these enlightenment era robots but also saw invention after invention mechanical curiosities. And some of merlin's favorite creations. Instrument's it was obvious to merlin that. This boy showed an aptitude. He dripped with potential and he burned with desire to understand more so the man suggested to his mother that they all visit his private up which was not something. The general public got to cast their eyes upon. This must have made quite an impression.

It's a mental game because it's no longer my body needs this heroin. My Body needs this crack. My Body needs this cocaine or these pills or whatever wants to. Physical addiction is gone. Then it's a seed that takes place in the mind and if you water that it's GonNa Flower and you're going to use so I tell people listen. You have to learn to control the mind by the intelligence. That's what Yoga tells you right. So when the mind says yea come on? Let's go get that fucking bag dope. The intelligence has to say where the fuck is going to lead me if I do that. And that's the thing people just act impulsively and you have to learn to yoga. Teaches you to pull back from that and realize I'm not I'm not the five senses? I'm not the mind I'm even not the intelligence. The WHO I am is situated beyond the atmosphere. The soul is situated even beyond the intelligence. Although the souls giving guidance through the intelligence and what's known as the Parramatta mother Super Soul is God seated in the heart of of each of every living entity giving direction so I tell people.

It means the all attractive person and then Rama's a name for God that's You know the the actually hurry addresses the female energy of God. Because you know that's the whole thing we don't we don't the M- the devotional aspect and Rama is the power so god contains everything all wealth all knowledge all strength. Oh beauty all fame all renunciation. So Krishna is means the all attractive person we're attracted to to those qualities and everybody when we see a beautiful person well like. Wow that person's beautiful but is that person the most beautiful no well if we see somebody with wealth that guy's fucking loaded but this Yoni Z. Possess all the wealth so we're attracted to these qualities in the material world knowledge strength renunciation. Wow that person gave up everything to fucking charity.

In the Iron Age of Kali the the preferred method of self realization is to chant the holy names of God. It's not religion is spirituality. There's a big difference is not dogma. I've seen them turn the Krishna thing into dogma. But I can always look power pod and say look what proud said do look what. Buddhists said they do look were Jesus Christ said to do you know I look at these different teachers that existed. You Know Muhammad. Whoever through the ages visited his people to it's all about love yes and people turn it to suit their needs and turn against each other and make religion this ugly fucking word and it's not supposed to be that it's supposed to be this incredible loving Gigan- just like in America?

It's pretty pretty wild but I just want to give you guys an update as to what is happening. First of all. I said I'm still doing this. Fucking Kito Diet and for the most part. It's not a big deal. Although I do feel very restricted but I also have lost a bunch of weight but the thing I really miss is before doing dopey putting out a bowl of cereal like a mixture of life and the Organic Graham Cracker. Cereal and the frosted mini wheats with chocolate chips in it and chocolate syrup and milk. That's what I like to eat before I record dopey and then I like to eat dark chocolate like sixty percent dark. Akao chocolate as I record dope and all of that is gone but just to give you total transparency. Linda buys these fucking Stevia chocolate chips and they have very little. They've no sugar in very little carbs. So I ate like ten of these fucking chocolate chips which are good and then I had two cups of the Stevia heavy whipping cream a coffee and I told somebody that I've given up the sugar for the Stevia. And they said that means. I'm going to get cancer. So if anybody in the dopey nation knows anything about cancer sugar substitutes please drop a line to dopey podcast at gmail.com and in other news after all that dog stuff Linden I got the fucking dog and it's a little dog.

Fuck in Joe Rogan appearance and I was thinking I'm GonNa Learn everything I need to know from this but then I realized that he had a book so I went down three books. He has evolution of a chrome MAG. He has meat is for pussies. And what's the third one two? Pm effect which dropped last year. The effect is the most interesting one for me because John Talks about positive mental attitude as PMA. Well that's what it stands for. It's we're GONNA come from Regionally from the Napoleon Hill teachings and then HR copped it believe in like seventy nine when they wrote attitude and you know and when I met them which we can get into fucked up smuggling drug dealer in the Navy and was the Napoleon thing Polian Hill.

I can hear myself. Yeah so he wrote a bunch of books on self help and becoming successful and stuff like that but very intense Individual and an HR from bad rage from bad brains read his books and then Connor took the PMA thing and ran with it and put in this song attitude.

But you know the the you know the thing about sound vibration is the most powerful thing in the planet like they say like even after you die and your body your soul is hovering like you can actually still here for a period of time. That's the sound is still sound vibrations. Yes Oh it's like you know. So the thing was the seed was planted and it took a lot of other crazy. Shit go down for me to start paying attention to it. And most of that was drugs and alcohol in near death experiences of just growing up on streets and street fights and and all that type of stuff. Now the first thing. I don't know if this is funny or not. Funny or whatever I. We're in the parliament where I grew up and I grew up in a pretty cushy middle class Jewish life. My parents were both teachers.

Well behind her back so when they got divorced she was homeless. So I have been doing all right with the music in the business and everything that I was dealing with at the time. So I gotta run up an apartment and furniture and everything and at the same time My brother was dealing with addiction. He he overdosed almost died. He was in comas.

He was a refugee from Vietnam. Came over spent two years in a refugee camp in Malaysia. Talked about fucking hardcore him and he has seen the and now he lives in Albuquerque new landscaping business. And you guys need your yard stunning Albuquerque. Hit me up. I'll hook you up with young but But yeah he was in. He ran away when I was a teenager. He was gone for twenty years and just fucking reappeared one way right like and now he's he's he's in your life now though right. Yeah Yeah we were. You know we talk regularly and tax back and forth and stuff. Yeah so all right so this this family reunion like why what what made you want to write about this like. What is this about? Well I just you know my like my family. They're all like redneck oil. People trump. You know the you know the only only book I ever read the Bible and that's good enough for me which I guess explains a lot. Wow I just just figure that out on the the but I love them all. I love them dearly. You know and I will fucking take a bullet for anybody. That's my family. You know and so I was trying to sort of like figure out why you know. Why is it so important to me and also like? I just felt like my family was sort of falling apart. My sister's gone through this. Fuck rough divorce and you know they were all on the West Coast and I was in Atlanta and New York most of my life and just feeling really disconnected from everybody and then I was like Kay. This is it. This van is going to. This is like a time machine. Were all just going to get into the scooby. Doo Magic mystery machine. And we're going to travel together and not journey is going to turn us back into what we were before you know. Family and created an expectation. There were a couple of bumps along the way rich but we survived. You know we survived. And I've I've learned a lot during that trip. One of the things I learned is learning hurts and that people might family have an incredible amount of patients for me and the bullshit that I submit them to. But but since that it's been great you know. I mean my my older sister to China and we had some shit was up to the two of us and we ended up squashing out on that trip to she nine. I had sort of not not like no bad blood really but we just have fallen out of touch and do this trip together. I was like Oh man like you really chilled out in the last ten years. You know the you're not the kid that I remember and The you know. And then it ended up perfectly Sheena and my mom and I like all live in Phoenix now with enough distance. Between us that we're not you know walking on each other and and one of the things I learned from doing that trip in writing that piece was that I had to cut my dad out of my life and that's been really hard and an incredibly liberating to like you. You can pump certain amount of energy into something and at a certain point. You just have to say enough's enough crabby. Yeah some was it an accumulation of things or did one thing happened that made you. I mean there's a lot of shit you know like the you'll politics now is like such. You know there's how many divorces have been caused by trump's election. You know like the the for a lot of friends of mine. They were sort of like who? Is this guy that I married. You know the and so you know. There's been that pressure with my dad but I've been skirted Daddy. You're my dad. I'm not GonNa talk about this with UCS. Were just GONNA fight. So let's talk about fucking classic rock or whatever you know the And then the he. He was invited to my sister's wedding and and he said he wasn't gonNA come because it was Like dishonest and deceitful. Or something like that. I was like no offense dad but like your fucking your secretary you abandoned your wife and your children like fucking get those words out of your fucking mouth you know like we took you back like how dare you step to my sister and fucking Scott for kids. She's working her ass off. You know she. She was a good kid. She wasn't drunk. She wasn't a fuck up. Like how fucking dare you so? That was the line for me. He didn't do anything to me. This is my sister was like if I have to pick one. I'll pick her any day man. Sorry to hear that you know what it's good it's been good. It's really it's like a weight has lifted you. How does everyone in your family feel about the fact that you've written about them? They they they by this point. They tolerate me. You know the kids were like. How much are we going to get paid? I was like fucking nothing did. How did this come about? You're you're kind of the Golden Child of the kindle singles initiative but that went the way of the Dodo. Right like they discontinued that program. I don't know why it was cool. Well David Blom the guy who created it laughs something else and then they just sorta ran it into the ground where there was like just so much stuff. You know the this is sort of a new sort of Relaunching of it. It's basically the same idea. Yeah yeah basically. And that'll be out January twenty first and then. I have an audio book coming out in March. We gotta do a fucking audiobook together or something. We're we're doing right now. A live audio book a radio play. But that's that's the cold Turkey one how to quit drinking by not drinking. Your is your self help manifest style. Yeah I feel so conflicted about it. I feel so conflicted. Doing doing an added on this after the podcast. What are we doing edits on you motherfucker man do? I haven't read it yet and apology got thank the don't read. It was like oh no the way the riches actor. He's already read that audio book. You could just take breaks every ten minutes or whatever and then cut to me. And I'll I'll I'll like give you my reactions director's cut but that's cool. That's like a new you. You're a master storyteller but the kind of self help genre. This is a new new. I kind of think for you. I mean I know you've written articles for the fix and things like that on on your super journey but you know what stop elation. I'll be totally honest. I really didn't want to do it. I actively did not want to do it. They just hate me when I was fucking desperate and I needed money. Okay I was like okay. I'll do it and then when I got into it I was like. Oh Shit I actually really really care about this a lot and this in some ways this is like my fucking life's work rate here so similar to the long run. I didn't WanNA right the long run. But David Bloom Sammy down. This is what you're writing. Dude yeah so I just you know the yeah it ended up being tremendously meaningful to me and I hope that it helps people. But that's GONNA hang audiobook. Only Kendall Bird we can sell it as a physical book to the but right now it's It's just audio book right. The Jada you're right you got to cook.

"Do it. Let me know your message. You're gonNa feel like what you felt like last night or maybe feel the one of the things I just before I forget in discussions of a my resistance. Stay the you know. John pulled up a perfect example of this and I do have resistance in our problems with the structure of it and at every point when I'm being critical a I always feel like I have to move very carefully and very delicately because fortunately I have people like you in my life who have benefited from so much wisdom from the rooms. Shit that I hear in my day to day life the resins hard-core and come to find out later that it's it's you know it's an old AA truism or it's from directly out of the big book or whatever so. I hope you don't think that I'm coming out. You know fucking knives and guns and all that Shit because I know that I you know second or third hand. My life has been enriched by the wisdom of people in the room right so I hope you know that when I am critical about specific things. It's it is the most sort of like loving respectful way possible. Because I know right that I've benefited. It's still so funny to be too though because like all right set aside the god part of it right. You're like I have problems with the structure for me. It's like all right a group of people who kind of share a certain kind of problem get together and they talk about it. They share their experience their strength their hope From a perspective of trying to be of service to each other or support system and then there are these tools like. Hey if you do these like things like kind of take inventory of like how you've lived your life and you you know you you mend these bridges with the people that you've like. These are all ancient traditions that transcend a book and a room in a program. A group of people that you know if you detach from the labeling around it would just be like kind of smart common sense things to do to kind of improve yourself in your life experience. Yeah I have that group around the world in life and it's awesome. They're like everywhere. I go and a lot of them are fans of yours. I don't know how you go. These bars night after night. That like that would wear on my soul. I just remember how I feel right now. Drink and all the time. Just remember this dog shit feeling I mean for me to like one of the things. I was growing up music. How important it was in my life. You know. My father was breaking in rape in my mother and beating her and it was always the music that You know to dress what you're doing because you getting something out of it. That's what keeps you going for five months on the road and when I was in the foster homes it was always music when I was on the streets. Who's music when I was locked up? It was music and then. I got the gift from. Hr who took the MIC and said Yo get out there in eighty wants to play music and I always would get in the worst places in my life when I walked away from the music. It's it's part of the whole process for me to of staying. Sober is having those shared experiences with people In a room and he doesn't have to be in a room doing the twelve step program. A room to me is like we're playing for all these people. And then you have these amazing conversations afterwards and it's not involved it's not revolving around you know with can smoking weed and having fucking drinks and doing all this shit it was always like we're having these fucking philosophical discussions and what's interesting is. I won't mention the person's name but even the walking tours Some dude hit me up and was like got out of prison. And he's No fucking joke. He's a fucking big fucking strong tattooed fucking maniac has kids got out of prison and was like fucking had a gun and I was gonNA fuck it in my life because I went back to addiction and I started listening to the podcast rich role and listening to the message and got your books and all this stuff and I was like but at first he was like you know. I'M GONNA write John On fucking instagram. I mean right this dude and I just happened to be fucking looking at my phone. And he's sitting there with a fucking gun and he was like if I don't hear if I don't get talked to somebody now I'm GonNa fucking ended and it was. I was like Holy Shit and he came out on the walking tour. So what did you say to him? I saw you. Just re- yeah. He just he just taught I just kept telling him about the positivity man don't isolate don't do this you listen you gotta get past the fucking check out my book. Judy's do that. Go on these podcasts. Listen to this shit like we all been there like. He didn't say the words never came to me that I had a gun and I'm sitting there. It was always like he just kept he. He was asking me questions and I found out later because he came on tour. He told you fucking way to everybody else left and he was like dude. I just want you to know like that day. I was going to end my life and like the fact that you responded to me. And that's the palliative you know the social media and the meeting of people in the rooms and you know and the gigs and concerts. It's I I think there's so much good that can come out of that too like this. So it's a platform you know to to really do a lot of good shit and I find like when I step away from the music and it. It's kind of like part of the whole thing for me is to be doing this and Using these platforms. Yeah it's your relationship to the platform. Use It because you know you're fucking you're getting people hitting you up to like it's like doesn't necessarily have to be walk into the basement of a fucking church but it's there nonetheless it's the room is where you create it. Yeah I get that I mean. I threw out a tweet thread on new years. When was in Australia? Basically saying you know. It's always a gift on New Year's Day to wake up sober. That's when you really like. Yeah it was a bunch of stuff about like because a lot of people are going to wake up on New Year's day feeling like shit you know thinking like it's Day One and I'm not off to a good start and maybe it's time to reevaluate so every year. Throw something out like that and I just ended the threat by saying are always open to anybody. Who's in that state right now and wants to talk and I just got tons of messages and made sure that I responded to all of those. That's that's the service and that's what it's about and that you could you know there's a lot of problems with social media and on a macro level what it's doing to culture and society but if you can use it for that purpose and today I ever did for to be of service. It's an incredible to today. I read your post about the Australian fired because you were there watching it firsthand. And it's just I mean it brings fuck in tears when I'm seeing what's happening to these animals and and You posted some charity links. Which I'm going to be donating to in the money goes right to to organizations and it's just like we have to as a fucking humanity needs to start making a global shift away from what the fuck were doing in the path. Where taken in this you know. So many signs of it. I just saw another documentary about Venice that to sea levels rising. The place is going to fucking water. And they're losing these museums in history and they're freaking the fuck out and just everything that's going on and I made a post yesterday and it was like you know if somebody's saying what if we create what if it's a hoax and we created a better world for nothing like a fucking come on man like dude but I I don't know what a waste of time and you know. I just saw your post in because you were over there and you affected by the fires where were you. I was in Sydney for most of the time and Sydney is not under imminent threat from the city burning down. I think I could be wrong but I believe that the closest bushfires are something like fifty kilometers away. So it's not as if you can see the fires from the city but when the winds blowing a certain way as it does on most days The air was the air quality was unbelievably poor. And there were definitely days where you know it go outside and this is not a good idea. And you'd walk around people got. They have masks on the skies. Orange walking around the opera house couldn't conceive across. Yeah you couldn't see across. The harbour bridge was obscured because of the smoke. It was bad really bad so I didn't see the fires firsthand And what's interesting is how you normalize. What's happening because I was there for? You know this is. These fires have been going on for four months timber. Well after they'd be gone and it's gotten worse since I left and I know I've been talking to friends there. Air Quality's even worse than it was when I was there. But everyone's you know it's not like lifestyle. People are going to work and going about their day. Because what else are you going to do And even being there. It's hard to grasp the scope and the size and the sheer devastation and the impact of what's happening there. I mean it would be as if you saw those maps of Australia superimposed over the United States. It's like it would be as if fires are burning from Miami to Portland Maine in like it's and then up around across the Chicago or something like that you know. It's unbelievable so what we do. It's in that I post that I made about that. I mean. I think that the impulses to feel powerless and that the world is out of control. And there's a kind of desperation or you know sort of hopelessness that comes with you know acknowledging that level of Dystopia but the truth is there are things that that we can do there. Are these relief organizations where we can be immediately of need the people who need that and then there are ways of dealing with and addressing the macro problems that are shifting tectonic plates that lead to these sorts of things and they're less sexy and and they don't. I think we need to the highest level and it's important You know let our governments know what's acceptable and what isn't there are changes that we can make right now in our homes in our daily habits. That don't seem like they're connected to this problem but ultimately are and if we want to solve these problems we do need to take responsibility for those choices and how we're living our lives on a daily basis. I mean is. I just saw a huge disconnect like all the Amazon that being cleared and burned to graze caddo in grow crops to feed the cattle. And it's like the Amazon of the lungs of fucking planet and it's like nobody really said anything about that or and then these fires dwarf that size. Yeah but not the rain forest solo with the planet. They're doing that everywhere now. Like my friend said to me like how come nobody talked about. What's going on in Indonesia and all that what they're doing over there and I think it's what aboutism anytime you you sort of shine a light on something then says well. What about the? You're talking about this but nobody yeah. That's not productive right. You know or so or if you say. Hey there's a problem here let's look at it then it then the va or somebody attacks you because you flew on an airplane. It's like yeah. I flew on an airplane like I'm not I don't I don't live as zero carbon emissions life and I've never said that I do. There are certain things that I do habits around. That hopefully are part of the solution. But I'm not perfect and I say this all the time like I have an iphone. Where where are these minerals in this phone come from like I'm complicit and whatever that system is that creates that that probably is creating a lot more harm than good? So it's it's not about puritanism but I think it's about raising collective consciousness and awareness absolutely mask the I want to steer this back to something we talk. We always talk about the The service thing you know the Because when you're confronted with all these huge problems it's like what like what can I do? How can I help you know the and also like.

"Just rolled around in bike year looking like I was out for a ride and then not manshat. We try to manage it was it was during the bad weather. I had somebody drive me. This Guy Scott and just as freak shit happened I would never it was. It always had to be a referral and I had to call. The person was like real tight. I didn't just fuck and sell shit on the street. So it was this fucking dumb ass fucking businessman. Dude tells me. Oh a medicine ball come and I got popped bottom line and And then Aj Novello who was in leeway into chrome eggs from since ninety two was like he said you know I talked to my. My Swamy was this. He's this incredible Astrologist from India. And he'd said so much shit that fucking about people he was able to do their charts and see Veda construed fucking unbelievable from India like the real deal and AJ said to him. Should I? I'm thinking about doing this music again. Side project with my singer and he goes yeah. You can do it once. He gets out of prison because that's where he's going and I was like any needs to stop doing drugs because some bad stuff is in his chart and right after. Aj told me that. I got busted and then all this shit happened when you know my brother and all this other shit and I'm like you know what that's it so since Since right right around nine eleven I just I just got sober so fucking nineteen years man of You know doing do and not even like 'cause I started feeling like even smoking weed. I had to smoke the whole bag. I had you know an addict. I can't just had to smoke the whole bag. Iraq's of crack and then free base and then go rob motherfuckers to get their shit whatever. That's the way I've always been with my addiction problem. I I I would drink the whole bottle. I would take fucking three placid hills or two and oils or do whatever the fuck I was doing. And I'm like I'm GONNA fucking die. It's in the cards. I've got a fucking stop and then shortly after I started. You know training for marathons in on Glenn which led to but you never went to twelve stop never but I I did temple I mean you your your program of recovery is very much a spiritual program but it's one of your own designs. Yeah yeah but it's not isolating. I knew I couldn't do it on my own. I had to be around people with DPMA. I always say. And and you know those those touchstones that people like yourself and everybody else who's been through it and done it and are on the higher path. I I made sure that I would fuck into the point of like dude. It's Kinda creepy like how much I wanted to just as I just need to be around positive people like you know it was that type but Dane where I'm like. It's it's easy you know. Everything is by association in Sanskrit Balked Asanga who we hang out with we take on those qualities and I wanted to qualities of the fucking bad asses on the planet that guests should done on the any and all circumstances and I knew it wasn't going to happen. I started distict distancing myself from people who always made excuses and you know all that other shit that always playing the victim and all You know always mean everyone's out the I just was like not that I don't have compassion to try to help them. But it wasn't helping me in my life being around those people have you ever gotten close to a relapse since then not at all man. 'cause that's why my girl didn't understand. Erica didn't understand why I do to ironman stuff and I'm like you know. Listen man and my coach originally was Orion mims and he goes. You know he's been through fucking hell. He's a fucking brother. He's had a fucked up family life african-american box to all the shit he was like. You know we'll run in from this. Keeps the at bay you know and for me. It's like the writing the training all of that stuff Is What helps. Beat the mind with a stick every day so when someone says to you you've just replaced one addiction for another you you you stopped with the crack and the weed and the booze etc and you've replaced that with ironman training like. How do you respond to that? I say that and good diet. But what the fuck what. What would you rather beat? Somebody said that to funny enough. This is your drug and I go. Yeah is my drug of choice but guess what I get highest fuck off. I'M IN SHAPE. Help other people and so badly or you're gonNA fucking die like what you were like. What's what's the alternative to that. Misha's good retort to that question. But well the thing I came up with Mo most recently is no. I didn't just replace one addiction with another. I replaced the crack. Smoking Robber Junkie with an elite athlete. Who fucking inspires? Hundreds of thousands of people So people are gonNA find a way to hate on whatever you do for negotiation time when you got asked that question you said the drink. Here's how I think about it. Like the drink was always the easy choice and putting on the running shoes in the morning is the hard choice dude display today. Well you aren't going running today. Man The bathroom so i. I have an audio book coming out in March about how I quit drinking what my process was so. I did a lot of a lot of research into that this whole replacing one addiction with another. It's fucking it's bullshit it's fabrication the there's been no evidence of people who are prone to one addiction having replacing one addiction with another. And what's in? There is no research on it until the early two thousands and there was a study from two thousand one to two thousand four. That shows that if you had if you're an alcoholic and then you deal with being an alcoholic your much less likely to have across addiction. You develop a cross addiction to something else than somebody who still functional alcoholics who becomes addicted but fast birds intuitive about that. I mean you're saying someone who deals with their alcoholism like if you're just a dry drunk and you've got no you know spiritual program then in my experience. That person is much more likely to find themselves trying to you. Know alter their you know their interior landscape by you know gambling or sex or whatever it is they'll find some other way too because you're not if you're not dealing with the underlying disease that feeling of disease that feeling of like not not feeling comfortable in your own skin you're gonNA you're GonNa you're gonNA latch onto some other way of like altering your consciousness. Yeah I mean the you know. I have two responses to that one thing is that the this study is seeing people. It's there's not comparing those people to of normal folks that it's just comparing people who are actively practicing or actively using people who are who are no longer actively using so i. I don't think that it's perfect. Data there but you know what you describe it a dry drunk when those spiritual program by your terminology. That's me Bro. Come grow fast. So you've been hit me while I'm down right. You've been sober. How long at this point ten years now or you've you've maybe. I should say abstained. I I'm over on one of the things I wanted to to address it was I I. I'm not. I'm not cleaned by that terminology like a US mushrooms a couple times a year infrequently smoke pot or something like that the you know more and more though like I have a bag mushrooms in my freezer and it's been there for eight months ten like I just don't have the time to get around to doing it doing other shit. You don't stink but I just wanted to sort of fact check that okay. Well one thing that I I look at it is and I always said this. The amount of time and effort and energy that goes into maintaining a habit if you re directed that energy toward anything positive for me it was like. I'm like all the shit that I had to go through to get the coke exhaustive free basit and in my case it had to do with like strong arm. Robin motherfuckers which could get me killed. And the amount of energy even even Junky who has a bundle of day habit and I see it all the time still to this day. There's functioning junkies out there who can hold down a fuck nine to five put on a fucking suit and they gotta have it and they gotta do a bundle a day or half a bundle a day or what's interesting about those people is. I think most people would be surprised at how undetectable it is. There's a lot of you really want to like you know functioning heroin addicts or what are you can't necessarily tell. I can tell there's you have this image from television or whatever you know like a dude weighs one hundred pounds and fucking popping fucking axes in all kinds of shit and it's like unless you really know and I've been around like I said since I'm thirteen years old and I'm fucking fifty eight this year. So that's a lot of years the fucking trenches of the drugs. I can pretty much tell but I always said dude if you guys if these junkies allocated that amount of time they could be running fuck fuck five hundred fortune. Five hundred companies. I'm like Holy Shit to creative shit that they had to do in the resilience stories fucking day in the scams and schemes. And I I mean I was there doing it myself. But I'm like I just it's not replay redirecting your energy at more than it is replacing one addiction for another and the thing is when I redirected all that energy our wasting and getting high and all the other bullshit the negative bullshit. My life started taking a very positive turn and I was thus able to tell other people going through like Yo. Here's what you gotTa do replace all that energy. Put the energy here you know. Go Go fucking do this you know and similarly this is a conversation that dates back to the the first day that I met Michika shortly after the long run came out the amount of energy that that Michigan puts into resisting like a spiritual program. We'll just call it that if I stop resisting. What are we going to happen? Getting called upon jazz in the world. That would open up to Michigan if you would avail himself of the you know the higher powers that the look will look at it this way. You know like the familiar with the lead. A Horse to water. But you can't make him drink lawyer with that dynamic right now there are in there are like you know. And they're all so they're like you know their dogs that like just want to sit on the couch and smaller farts all day and their dogs that want to run and like a dog. Don't wants to fuck and run. You know like give him some parts to give him something to pull against and he'll pull against it. You know the you know what I'm going to go into it with this. I'm GonNa say thank you to both of you guys because I was thinking on the way over here. I was thinking thinking about the PM again. It's one of those things. When we were kids. We used to mock that and you were right and we were wrong. You know in like I need to get more of that in my life. I brought a copy of the book for You. I I say this mother needs to get the Book GonNa get right book the Long Run Holy Holy Shit. If you haven't read it you know and you're dealing with shit go get that fucking right and just so people that are that are listening. If they're newer to the program and don't know the history here we go back like we were. I met you early days of the podcast. You had written this kindle single the long run that was like the number one bestselling. I think it probably to this day. Is the biggest selling single right with the Nike Shoe? Worn out cover. That thing's still sells like crazy and fucking life together. So it's like a little you know it's a. It's it's longer than a short story but shorter than a typical book. Kind of tells the story of how you Got Sober and discovered running. Became this ultra. Let's not forget finding ultra I mean that is. I read it out on the road when I'm in the van I told you remember. I'm like Holy Shit. I just reread your book. I loved the story about how you guys met where. Jj cornered urine like. Who is this? Take me back vividly now like we were at we were at the seas in New York. Chase me down a hallway or something like that fucking rich old guy. Bring me over there. I don't remember getting emails from you though that when I was It wasn't never emails. It was on social media sending you messages. I instagram or whatever the fuck and you never wrote me back Mike mostly and then. I said the Brandon because he knew you kill introduce me. I kill a motherfucker. Would you not getting my.

The Federal Reserve Bank is set up to handle thousands of checks from hundreds of banks in a single day in nineteen gene. forty-seven a check winds. Its Way through a bank to get the positive and legions of bank workers are clocking in countless hours to deal with all those checks. The Post War economy was booming but that meant banks were now drowning and paperwork. They were forced to close at two PM just to leave time time for filling out ledgers by hand and they were still falling behind a fast powerful machine was urgently needed to keep up with the pace of business over Bank of America. They had millions of checks to handle each day. Here's William Casio professor at the Kellogg School of Management Cement and northwestern university. Can you imagine the world banking without computers. I mean this is heavy paperwork intensive in the street and particularly the case of Bank of America with all the multiple branches. So there's all this information that they want quickly and To be able to communicate and also due process it So that was really important for for such a large company and I couldn't. They understood that computers was the way of future. So in nineteen fifty fifty be of a contracted Stanford Research Institute to figure out how to automate the handling of all those checks it took Sri five years ears to build a prototype which they called the electronic recording machine accounting or IRMA. The machine had over a million feet of wiring Eight thousand vacuum tubes and weighed about twenty five tons it has the potential to handle fifty thousand transactions a day Bank of America with keen to start producing the IRMA.

Ge was certainly not going into the computer business. The reason I think Coordin- eventually capitulated was that that he put a condition on them going after it and said just this contract. We don't want to enter the business machine market or generally we we want enter specifically this particular bid and you can go after it and so he said go coroner let them go ahead with the RFP feeling confident that they wouldn't win the contract anyway. Let him blow off some creative steam and then old fueled hand-delivered their proposal Rosal to the Bank San Francisco office and waited then much to everyone's surprise IBM pulled Out of the race and even more unexpectedly. GE's proposal rose to the top Bank of America. Awarded them the contract not any of the other technology manufacturers the underdogs got it the underdogs. Ge one the multi million dollar their contract on April Ninth Nineteen fifty-six be of as board of directors accepted GE's proposal Baker signed and a thirty one million dollar contract without running it by his boss Corner.
