"Those same for Paul if those same percentages are correct about describing the future as the twenty fifty data suggests is the case then we'll be able to we will be able to know that you get through that twenty sixty data and yes my hope is and the reason I undertook this experiment other than you know just scientific knowledge was I can see with the climate change that's coming all up with things like code red velvet is you know just the first they're going to be a lot of these I mean climate change is going to cause viruses and bacteria to mutate things are common date of their new circumstances and Shelby that's basically what they call the nineteen is it some kind of mutations and mutation and it's still reported four yeah exactly so if I could tell you George if you want to invest in something or you are are an inventor or you're an engineer and if you will do the best you will save the lives of hundreds of thousands of people that absolutely if I could that's the point so I'm going to see out of the twenty six the data and comparing it with the twenty fifty data I'm going to be able to put forward a series of predictions based on which I believe about the somewhere between seventy five ninety two percent of the material will be correct well now let me ask you Stephen because these these dates twenty fifty twenty sixty or thirty to forty years out yet it seems like you're getting data from these and you're garnering that much earlier so why do you why why do you put it out to twenty fifty or twenty sixty when you're getting stuff right now when they do that when you do the studies because I want to get out yup it's it's it's very important I want to get out further and Josh great intellectual projection can give you the answer but I don't want to get too far out twenty sixty forty years in the future I don't want to get too far out because you don't understand what they're talking about I mean yeah in eighteen sixty five you and I have been having this conversation as I told you that everybody was describing for me that was a kind of picture that you hung on your wall and you could watch people dancing saying all over the world I mean what the hell would you make of that right I wouldn't your what if I could give you a specific example Jules Verne rug twenty thousand leagues under the sea which was hugely successful at the time and he did this in Paris and the nineteenth century he then wrote.

Difference Between a Maker and an Engineer in the Maker Movement
"Been this series of articles by a fellow who we've talked about on the show before Michael Mola's Hugh who's thankfully been around for quite a while and has not walked away like so many others have because they didn't get rich quick or something But he he's sticking to it and he's been writing a series of articles about the maker movement since make media went kind of bankrupt. They've re the make media folks have reinvented themselves into nonprofit and from what we hear Dale dougherty the guy who He didn't actually started. He started with The fellows O'Reilly Timaru Riley and Tim O'Reilly said ticket. And he got up and left and made his own little thing and and he and from what we hear. He has taken his own money and purchased from the holders. The people that owned the the properties to everything To get at the content and the titles and the names and things so supposedly Dale dougherty. Now Kinda owns it and what we hear. He's looking at making it into a nonprofit which sounds good. I think that might be the better way to go. And we'll talk about why in a second but mister you has kind of featured What's been happening to this? I'm using my finger. Air Quotes Maker Movement One thing about Mr use articles that he's never really stated explicitly and we would like to is the distinct and explicit difference between a maker and an engineer. So let's make something clear. People have been making things for quite a while. We've had the wheel for a while. Now it's just a few years. I didn't get invented when make make magazine came out. You know the fact. We've had these people. These strange beings go by the handle engineer for quite a while. Now but what's the difference between an engineer and a maker and there is a difference. I mean you can be an engineer and a maker of course sure but we believe that. There is an explicit distinction. That makes a person a maker versus engineer. And that's a person who's making something just for the sake of making it. They're not making it to meet a specific objective for some external pressure. Thing like you got to make this. They're not they're not. There's no gold. There's no necessarily a contract or a thing that has to be fixed because nobody really needs a life-size animated giraffe that they can drive around make refer cool and nobody really needs a giant statue with flames coming out of who knows what orphans. You really don't have. Don't give them any ideas. And if we look at the roots of the even the maker Faire and make media they themselves went to the artists from the burning men community and brought them in along with the folks who were the. What do you call them again? The the Jules Verne fanatics that water steam pulse team. And they do things just for the sake doing for the fun of it for the art of it for their motion of it and and we believe that defines a maker. That's what makes them maker and there's some differences in that in that light because now a maker does not necessarily mean they're an engineer. They could be an artist. Could be musician. They could just be a ten year old kid. Who's not sure what? What are your she wants to be or do that. But it sounds like fun to make this thing. That could be fun. It would be cool water. Some of the more impressive things you see more. Technically complex things you see are being made by people who are in their day jobs engineers and some of the ten year old kids grow up to become engineers because they were inspired by it in their in their youth. But but yeah. I think you're right in the. The central motivation is different now. Going to a university and interviewing some engineering. Phd's about the maker Movement. Is that kind of problematic? Because are they makers well? Yeah they're makers doing things for the fun of it. Some of them are the market. They've they've got their their budgets. They have to meet. They've got their students that got to teach the their goal directed there. I mean they could be makers they monto sit back and develop something fun. That's well within the realm of reality for them but that's not that's not their career. They're not making a career as a quote maker. Very few people do right. And as such what has to question if the whole idea of a maker movement makes sense for a financial endeavor probably not Does the maker Movement make sense as the basis for stem Maybe to get the initial interest. Yeah it's motivating that would be great but as the foundation for Stem I. I don't I don't think so. I think traditional education environments are essential for stem. You still have to learn the basics you still have to have the foundations all right and to be an engineer. You still have to know details that most makers just don't want to sweat sure but you can you can when you're trying to get kids motivated to learn stuff showing them you know some application of it that that interests them. Yes is much much more important. Oh Yeah Oh sure I mean I. It's it's in my opinion. It's a lot more fun than shooting at Aliens on screen sure area. But but I mean I I I show my kids. You know something that they're interested in. They're interested in building. Somebody I say okay well. Here's here's you know how you start but then you need your math. You Gotta learn this math in order to do this process. You know all right. So there's some motivation to learn some math skills that ordinarily most young folks say. Why do I need this? Yeah well you need it. In order to make the bullet go further right exactly. The Little Arrow go further at that. Get that piece to fit better. Whatever and this was never made clear by Mr you in any of his articles each simply kind of like most of the make media related kind of stuff just kind of glossed over the fact that there is a big difference between Disciplined Foundation Engineering and shoot from the hip having fun maker. Let solder it together and see if it works. It doesn't make is not synonymous with open source. No I don't agree with that Open source has a strong engineering foundation. All Open source came came from the software world. I mean I remember the early. Pdp Lebanon's they. The deck people sat here. It's open source that you could play with it and do whatever you want with it. But in the end we want in right and a lot of that is happening in this commune. This word. Yeah we do see that So it's not automatically you know. Open source equals maker. No I don't agree with that But there is overlap. Yeah definite overlap But that doesn't equate open source does not equate to the maker.

"Emerson who has written a rather thrilling book it's autobiographical but he could read like a novel the right kind of crazy is the name of this book and it is published by atria subtitled my life as a navy seal covert operative and boy scout from hell well that covers a lot Clint yeah I was trying to get all in there on the cover thank you for having me absolutely let's start with the what is the right kind of crazy well it's very you know there's there's several different things in the book but the right kind of crazy the combination of a person who enjoys risk so don't worry too much about consequence you know like someone towards gunfire like skin firefights jumping on a airplane blowing things up you know that's the right kind of crazy and hopefully you're doing all that on behalf of you know on the side of good not on the side of bad so the book is certainly a also has the personal aspects right so you know you live a lifestyle and professionally is almost all risk and sometimes that bleeds over into your personal life and I pretty much lay out all my bad decisions in the book and you know like they say bad decisions make for great stories yeah we're your voice got from hell yeah I probably took some of the scouting information and use that for trouble making by you know walking grandma across the street yeah well aid you know we we all have our our our road path that we choose it to follow what were you the kind where you daredevil kind of kid were you the kind of kid who would would go out and do crazy stuff yeah yeah we having trouble making definitely over the past time growing up overseas you know you don't have much supervision and we did nothing but cause trouble dressed up as ninja's in its whatever was in our path we figured out some way to either break it mess with it you know yeah difficult voice stuff that these days if you did that you forget trouble yeah absolutely it when you we're we're growing up of course some of us one of the things we are often think of is maybe being career goals were you the kind of guy growing up the saying I'm going to be a navy seal I mean I met my first seal I was ten years old so you know and I just mention Ollie up tell then I wanted to be and right now I feel yeah even cooler field goal making stories and I was sold right off the bat and plus you know you kill people and injured called murder you kill people as a seal and it's it's okay so you just gotta make sure you pick the right by the line now I would dare say a tricky line I'm sure now that eat you you may indeed have had the desires of growing up to be a navy seal I doubt that you had the thoughts of growing up to be the only navy seal ever inducted into the international spy museum no not at all I mean who would have predicted that I mean I I I didn't even know about the spy museum grow older you know and question five five eight years now I guess and and the first time I visit was blown away turns out it's like one of the most visited spot in BC and in here this whole time I hadn't heard of it but once I walked in a letter or yeah now I know why people come here can we just we just of a new building and Janice set up like MI six or eight cores and it's cool yeah it is it is quite quite interesting I had some espionage background but but strictly sit on my but nerd type of background although I I was in Vietnam but my job was to go out and and killed these and blow up things my job was to tell other people what to kill and blow up so an important role and it is really is but discerning not as as code exciting is as all of this the the the the the the transition first of all to be a seal in and of itself it is pretty remarkable what's the the attrition rate of those who apply to be maybe seals how many wind up actually what percentage they wind up actually being a seal actually making it years sooner than numbers always changers somewhere between twenty and thirty percent who will make it right and sometimes it's last seen there's there's very bold right if you like a winter class there you know you end up with less people summer classes are usually bigger so you'll end up having more graduates and that's mainly because of the academy's everybody graduates may go into the navy so plays a role but you know for example my class starts with a hundred and eighty guys and we graduate with twenty eight originals so well the biggest thing I said that's definitely attrition all right one eight six six Jimbo one eight six six Bible five four six two six as a we have a call from David in San Francisco hello David Jim our guest two things I was going to raise in a Jules Verne and if you remember him he had a whole bunch and we're spending inventions right and so sometimes great invention like a submarine could be turned into a weapon of death right we have twenty thousand leagues under the sea right now the scientists of the world for me only back to Leonardo da Vinci he was weapons maker in the king would never let him leave the area you know so he was like what do they call it again bird in a gilded cage he he was not be allowed to escape because he knew too much about the okay arts right so if your guest is serious about freeing or working on the right side how much reading all of that the captured scientists that are working on weapons project sign in so mean the of wood which side is are you talking about well isn't isn't the world's history of of the weapons of the world were made by slaves scientific slaves well I would dare say the vast majority were not but for whatever you thought you may have client yeah I mean sometimes people consider enlisting you know like you're automatically telling us yeah already of the more more or less voluntary I mean sure I'll grant you that yeah that Hitler's scientists operated under a certain shall we say succeed or die probably mandate but but for the most part you're talking about of people who who fairly voluntarily offer to to help out because they it there they have a government funding for all kinds of of toys to play with I would have closed a couple of things attributed to you at which I a are described as your two codes if you are cheating you are trying and it's only illegal if you get caught really wouldn't fly these days right I don't know yeah Lucille community for a very long time he would probably here you know if you're not cheating on trying more often can you hear our actual motto which is the only easy day was yesterday and it's gone away because they feel like okay that she if you're not you know try and my you know secure people's moral or ethical codes and so they're not allowed to say anymore but the reality here's users Hey do whatever it takes to win over your adversaries and that's really the take away from it unfortunately when real does something wrong whether it's you know legally or makes the news or whatever then immediately try to figure out like okay what why why did he do this and knows a little bit of a knee jerk reaction if you ask me but because these are things that apply to the battlefield in applied to everyday life but anytime somebody does some wrong you know leadership usually has a little bit of a knee jerk and then I. changed everything but the reality is is culture culture you know and the fuel communities definitely a bunch of guys that like taking risks and like I said before sometimes taking risk please over in your personal life and you get in trouble I'm wondering about the personal lives of seals as we go to a break here I would think that the the danger perhaps even maybe what sounds like a bit of of the drenalin addiction that these might be things that that were not conducive to a happy home life I think it varies you know and for I mean personally I talk about in the book that I'm taking risks and then all of a sudden you find yourself you know talking to other women in your married or you can lead to a number of things and some guys know how to deal with it better than others and sometimes it is adrenalin right there's guys that they get a lot of all that risk in in in our off time they're doing based jobs you know off the top of a skyscraper I had a buddy do that injured himself several times internally finally guy doing it but he was just so you know we just love the risk and that much that he's willing to risk his life all the time not just at work wow thank you each guy is is different on how they deal with some of the stuff and you know the you know there's a lot of mentors dinners guys that be just fine search codependent person upbringing and who they are does this require shall we say a special management and oversight on the part of the navy so it's starting to write I mean for a long time we've then Mavericks income awoke within the navy you know we we symbolize ourselves with iris and you know of course warriors and everything else in history in anything anything merit time is obviously we embrace but yeah I think big navy has started to you know put the microscope on naval special warfare when you've got you know Eddie Gallagher and some of the things that made the Nutri selling but the reality is if you take any demographic of people there's always gonna be ten percent of regardless of the vetting process you know that has the potential of you know doing something wrong so you only so much you can do the rest of the rest of it is a human behavior raised a certain way born a certain way and you're gonna act out a certain way.

"Hey I'm Rhonda staff I'm rotting Arab Louis and today's show the secret operation that shape the space race and made the moon landing possible so these were hearing a lot about how humans have to go back to space and reach the next Frontier Mars private companies are getting into the game of space travel some even have plans to bring tourists to the moon and it feels like a new kind of space race as emerging boot removed human history the thought of people flying into space not to mention landing on the moon was pure fantasy if they thought about it at all and even then it was usually confined to the home science fiction the reading at the top is an excerpt from Jules Verne's eighteen sixty five novel from the Earth to the moon describing what he imagined moon expedition might look like it was written when the civil war was just coming to a net at that time people still got around by horse and Buggy and most people lived on farms or in small towns many didn't travel far from where they were born so space travel was a wild farfetched idea but just about injury later the idea became a reality. Here's what you probably know about the moon landing the Cold War was raging the Americans and the Soviets had been engage in a space race for years and then on July twentieth nineteen sixty-nine Neil Armstrong and buzz Aldrin became the first humans to land on the Moon Orlando there's that iconic image of Armstrong stepping off the lunar module a quorum and then planting the American flag on the surface it was a triumphant moment for the US. We beat the Soviets to the moon reached a new frontier here made the seemingly impossible possible but like the moon there's a dark side to this story because it turns out that moment probably wouldn't have happened without the help of a group of former Nazi scientists and engineers and in particular one engineer whose lifelong dream of space travel guided them in into the mood.
An Introduction to the Industrial Revolution
"We're going to look at the consequences of this revolution first and then you'll see how important it is to understand first of all. Here's a definition of the industrial revolution. It's the use of steam engines to produce power instead of the ways going back thousands of years wind water and muscle and the second definition of the industrial revolution is it's the rapid social change that flows from that introductory machine in other words. The steam engine is quite literal definition of the industrial revolution but what were the consequences consequences of using the steam engine instead of wind water and muscle rapid social change was the answer the industrial revolution's chief product product was a world in constant change mainly in the areas of transportation and communications think about it this way at the beginning of the nineteenth century that is the eighteen hundreds the army of Napoleon did not move faster really then the armies of Julius Caesar Two thousand years earlier so in terms of transportation you couldn't get from Point A. Point B. Any faster Mr in one thousand nine hundred then you could in say five hundred. BC however by the end of the eighteen hundreds it was possible to go around the world in eighty days which was of course the title of Jules Verne's famous novel and you could send Semaphore. I four messages in a flash from one continent to another so that gives you a sense of the rapid changes in technology to just use one example news in eighteen hundred was very slow and very selective. It was only available to the rich in order to buy a newspaper. You had to have enough money to buy a newspaper which was certainly not cheap and news production production was quite slow and in fact the the whole concept of news did not exist until the industrial revolution brought it into existence in order to have news. You have to have change in society but if people were living in eighteen hundred you're pretty much the way they lived in say five hundred they would not be expecting to read much in a newspaper. Even if they could afford one they couldn't afford one but they didn't even have the concept of news. News requires a society that changes and the society never really changed changed not for the common people that's why when we study history we tend to study kings and generals and statesmen and what they do because at the level of the common people there's not much historical change to talk about so there was no concept of news news but by the eighteen thirty s and eighteen forties thanks to the industrial revolution which started in England news production began to increase and also thanks to the Industrial Revolution Printing presses were produced which were so advanced that they could produce a newspaper for only a penny and for example in eighteen thirty two. You have the first Penny newspaper The New York Sun in the United States of America now that was going to revolutionize politics because for the first time relatively poor people could afford to buy a newspaper for only a penny and once they could read the news once they purchase it. They could read it and once they could read it. They knew what was going on and then it became a factor in politics. newspaper editors would have to pay attention to the opinions of the poor whereas before the poor never had an opinion because they could not know what was going on and in the nineteenth century in Europe and America newspaper Editors Editors Editors were the political kingmakers who could select candidates and mobilize people to support them so the industrial revolution created the technology that gave people a reason to look for news and the means to look for the news because of the relatively cheap cost of the printing press and the ability to turn out a newspaper for just a penny any so this is one way in which the industrial revolution was going to revolutionize society in the next podcast. We're going to be looking at the first country to experience an industrial revolution.
An Interview with Space Historian, Rod Pyle
"Here with our next guest rod pile space historian he's worked with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Johnson Space Center and as written a lot as well he was written for PBS and well you also can involve with Deep Space Nine and Battlestar Galactica say if engine interesting stuff thanks for being with us thanks for having me and it's you know some people would call me a diverse career background person other people would call me a dilettante but yeah I'll check whatever well you can choose how you decide so let's start with what you did and have done for NASA so I had it kind of worked around the edges of that off and on back in that the ninety is mostly doing television production so occasionally we'd cross over into what NASA was doing but I was the car the employee of theirs but then about two thousand nine I got hired to write this really interesting program they wanted an executive training program the partnership between NASA and this group called the copper toward other York so I got together with the guy from IBM and we wrote up this training program and did that for a couple years I was great fun because if you're gonna talk you gonna give people lectures about how great space age was having a standard five behind with the profits but it's cool the gastric salute that was really fun and then finally the on time about two thousand twelve I guess two thousand thirteen I started working for Jeff horse migratory Pasadena on as needed basis writing books and articles for them and that that was really cool because now you're sitting there talking with the guys they call this stuff happens so this guy worked on many relator arm the rover and this guy over here worked on some kind of inflatable antenna system for CubeSats they're just brilliant really dedicated people that are so passionate excited about what they do and of course that that translates into you if you're listening to open hopefully the writing he's on a little bit about Mars making contact and also the blueprint for a battle star Margaret your contact was a cooperative they're both coffee table books in the sense Mars make contact was I'd written two books before the kind of looked over the Mars missions from mostly the American perspective somewhat from the Russian perspectives albeit perspective but they didn't have the kind of like we did so there's much more of an American story there and then as we got about twenty fifteen twenty sixteen won the publishers I work with said you know we really like to look at everybody's projects so that means the United States and Europe and Japan's made the Tampa and and India actually succeeded with their very first try a couple years ago and they want to do a picture book of it so I thought well this is great and actually got paid to do so I got to go hang out the archive your post laboratory and a few other places in big draw the old photos and interview the folks that worked on so forth so it's just really fun kind of a broad look at that basically everything that's happened since about nineteen sixty four four I think all the NSS what's that actual spaces ID at the group the oldest prose base human spaceflight group out there it was actually founded as a wage to organizations that merge one of them was founded by Werner von Braun the father the Saturn five back in nineteen seventy is and then the other group sub group was formed by a guy got to the office of the guiding Jerry o'neill was big the space colonies use a visionary at Princeton so those two groups merged a few years later and form the society so it's just a huge pros based advocacy group they have some political action they do I edit a magazine called ad astra which is a nice splashy quarterly periodical and then we got your the conventions and education programs in stem programs and so forth that you just really good good group of people I listened to I don't know who's a podcast of some broadcast of some kind that you were involved in and it was I learned a lot from it and you talked about whether it would make more sense next to go to the moon again or to try to go to Mars can you talk about the the risk reward present kinds of each of those so this is the longest you want to start a food fight one of the space advocacy groups just an argument going up moreover Mars or vice versa and it's been going on for a long time we've been talking about going to the moon sense Jules Verne wrote about it the eighteen hundreds with talk about going to Mars at least since the nineteen forties one or one about brown started writing seriously about it really before that with the various other visionaries and the question always been you know which ones cheaper wall so we did the moon in the nineteen sixties with their power projects so we know that that's doable and I would say it's behind us but we kind of picked the low hanging fruit there so the question now is what limited budgets and limited frankly attention span with both the public and Congress which one do you pick well Mars program is a very ambitious goal would be very inspiring for people but it could be anywhere from hundreds of billions to by some estimates as much as a trillion dollars and it's a long trip you know by the time you go out do you think there and come back it could be a year and a half two years and we just don't yet quite know enough about the effects of extended space flight on people both in terms of no gravity and also the radiation out there I'm kind of understand it but we need to know more about how to mediate it now to keep her from damaging people so the moon just makes an awful lot of sense in terms of something that's cheaper ball there's a lot of science rewards there there's a lot of training and work we could do towards getting to Mars and probably most importantly as it turns out recently discovered that in the last decade there's a lot of frozen water water on the south for the modem the ice and where you got water you can melt that make rockets you'll need make readable aired you can make drinking water you can go all kinds of stuff there's also metal and glass and some other elements on the moon that are very useful so for every bit of that you find there and can use their or used to go beyond to Mars let's say that's a whole bunch of stuff you don't have to watch in the space so you can use smaller rockets you save money at all just gets much much much easier so for my money the moon the next logical step and plus the the reward of going to Mars is more strictly scientific not so much commercial writing like did there's a possibility at least in a distant fantasy to manufacture on the moon maybe it will be cheaper somehow and you just kick the stuff back to earth and you can have a an earth the type of crowded and dying because of so much industry on a you can have all the industry up there I mean is that a crazy crazy I'm think of a thing or is that at least something you could end that might be a reason to go to the moon well I think that's what the settlement discussion comes and that's one of the things the national space society is very focused on so that you know it's not a fantasy it's doable it's workable we know that we've got everything in place with today's technology if we just get off our behind the bill what separates those founder of Amazon is so keen about he formed a rocket company actually before you on must did the SpaceX based Basil's former tropical blue origin back in two thousand and gives express purpose was to move heavy manufacturing off over do it in space or is not going to hurt anybody allow the plant to heal you go back to it you know like state if you well and give people options to live and work awesome first because there's a lot more resources even the local solar system then there is honor if you just have to go out and get up so this pretty compelling financial argument here and as you know as well as I do when there's a profit to be made suddenly things start moving a lot faster so I think that or on the cusp of right now so wouldn't it be my got would say be prohibitively expensive to manufacture stuff on the moon but that's not the case it doesn't have to be the case the thing is is to make getting there for the first few dozen times less expensive than what we're doing it with the Saturn five back in the nineteen sixties it cost a bundle you know in today's dollars the proper Graham would have been about a hundred and fifty billion under sixty billion she so that was expensive for six landings but nowadays when you have you on must flying as rockets for in some cases virtually a bird or or less than the other commercial providers are in there already cheaper than it was the nineteen sixties and their reusable they fly back to home base robotic we all by themselves and landed the refuelling be used again and Bayless is doing something very similar and other companies trying to get in on the act now you're reducing costs down by be be a factor of ten or alternately a hundred when you start reaching those numbers suddenly going out and doing

What did you quote, Jules Verne?

My name's Griffin Newman. Hello. My name is David sim. This is blank check with Griffin David's a podcast about Maga Fay's directors have massive success early on in their career and are able to unite the land in the sea. Exactly, right. That's what James one is done. He's united. See? But also we've been doing this weird stealth piecemeal many series where recover every DC universe film. And we're are we only missing man of steel in regard. We've done every other one right? Correct. And I'll get to that in one second. Oh k when giving. But yes, that is that is correct. And we've been covering these part of it is that we were kind of fascinated by how ramshackle this sort of franchise building seemed to be how much Warner Brothers was putting into it. And you how a blank check had been written. Right. And it was one director kind of kick starting this whole thing. But there seemed to be a lack of Likud vision for how this whole thing was going to be built out there. And now now they've starts become more individualistic. I mean like suicide squad is very much David air movie, but it's a super compromise David air move, more compromise, but wonder woman, aquaman and the other one. Yeah. These are the two, but it's like this is starting to be like, I guess this may be where the thing is going. It certainly seems that anytime there's less interference and pressure on the director the better, you're doing. I mean, here's something that. I don't think anyone can dispute about this film. It is pure. This is not a movie that was mental. Yeah. That might sound backhanded. I don't mean it that way. But even if you were like this movie, give me a fucking headache. Sure. You can't be like studio hackery. Right. Like this movie is insanity. So today, of course, talk about aqua, my man knuckle, my man, he doesn't say it at. Yeah. So that's just the Justice league thing. Yes. That they were like someone was like, no you need to catchphrase Ellen Ben, and I were going up, the escalator producer, Ben producer band. Benckiser port laureate. The Hawes peoper finds some critic personal friend Dan Lewis dirt by Bennie smoking, wet so can wipe any way hot Benny, right? I active meat lover. The graduates are certain tells over the course of different miniseries such Kylo. Ben producer kanobi bench on Benson aliens with a dollar sign war, Hawes produer bane. Ben nineteen fennel maker rebel h-has fucking Bangladesh. Mr Ben credible. Eat drink Benghazi and the holiday Jesus Christ. Okay. Wow. We were going up the escalator. And Ben said, how many times do you think they say it in the movie, mom, man? And my prediction was even if they don't say it with that sort of like in victory lap. I think he will offer to people as my man a bunch because that was the one thing that worked. Justice. So they're gonna have to be like one, you can do whatever you want. Give us four my man's. So I thought it was going to go like ocean master, my man, listen, sure, you know, I thought he was gonna work at into the conversation doesn't say at once. Good. None of that stuff. From the Justice league's in this. There was a point in the movie, and we'll get to work. I thought is this movie pretending that Justice league didn't happen. But the amber heard was in Justice, right? It takes a while for them to acknowledge they've met before. And when she first comes up to land. I was are they pretending? This is the first time they met are. They actually trying to just like condemning movie ignore the fact that these say max is because here's what Justice league gave us an argument. He's my man. He's my man he has a five point to try to which is nothing..
