Now the region itself has won gold in September. The New York Olympic region earned Leed gold certification from the US Green Building Council the rating has long been applied to buildings but now entire cities and communities can become certified for sustainability. Eric backers of Clarkson University helped the region with its application. He says participating communities measure their performance in key areas whether that be greenhouse gas emissions or waste diversion rates or things like vehicle. Miles traveled per year per capita. Then they sent goals for improvement back says the Olympic region will try to reduce how many miles people drive. That means finding ways to help. Visitors get to popular hiking spots without a car. For example by creating connecting trails are offering shuttle back. It says the region's economy depends on the climate and global warming will lead to more days without snow. Those are days. You're not having people skiing. Those days you're not generating revenue so Rodney's facilities so he says the region embraces environmental action.

They do lose teeth over time, but got it. So like a really old crock is like has very few teeth. Got it. Okay. Anything you guys would like to plug? Would you like people to come visit the natural history museum? Yeah. I mean, if people are not here in the area, go visit your local natural history museum. But if you're here in the l. a. area absolutely come visit. We actually have several museums in the area. So the natural history museum in part of that natural history museum group. And I should say the nationalistic museum is an exposition park right across the street from USC. And then we have the librarian carpets and museum. Oh yeah. Which is another fantastic museum and is really one of the world's best ice age fossil sites. And so if you live here in LA, you haven't been there. You need to check it out. It's amazing. We also get lots of international visitors coming to. Both of those places is actually a smaller museum which is like a western history museum that's up in new hall, and that's called the heart museum. And so for people who are here in LA check it out. It's actually some really interesting early, like western silent film history. Wow. Okay. Executive into those places have been all the time I just came from them. Are you from new hall? I don't believe you. No, I actually don't. I feel like new. I'll say like, I did a Mike there. But how far ways Newhall. Without traffic. It's like a forty minute drive cynical, Rita with traffic.

"That's what it says on the. I wish humans interim survival rate. We're not around. A good group yank historically restraining. Go back two hundred years in the human survival rate was a lack of a lot lower than it is now. Right? Yeah, that's true. Twenty two years. What a dream gone out around that age, some negative. No, no, no, no, no, it's fun. Death is a release. We can't wait. So what was the other one the it says that they, they're night-vision is very good that they're mostly nocturnal hunters that correct. I didn't know that night vision being let's doesn't make much sense because their night vision goggle, I got this. Get out of this. So I don't know. I mean, if you're if you're vision in the day is really poor, then you know, and because it's all murky, I don't see how you're going to suddenly in the same murky water, be able to see better at night, better vision at night. I mean, there's no reason to think that they would the only thing that I would say is that. I mean, certainly there more active. You see a lot of activity at night. That's certainly in particularly like like sort of in many in many of these species are kind of crops killer meaning the like, like deer creek positive, meaning that they're active, sort of in the dawn ish hours. Dusk hours. Yeah, diurnal actor during the day nocturnal active at night. And then if you're sort of active in the early morning hours and in the late evening hours, we call crusty layer. So there's lots of these crocodilians that you see a big period of activity. Of course. That makes sense. Because when like Nile crocs, for example, or saltwater, crocs winter, these like big mammals and even birds and things win. Are they coming into the water? Well, they're going to be coming into the water early in the morning or right around dusk, and so it makes sense to be active then because your best chance of encountering prey item that exact same time. Well, yeah. You'll also nighttime activity fray. Welcome back. Hope. Commercial break. It is dusk. In, you know what that means. Yeah. I mean, anything else we want to cover? Do you have any other questions? I had a question about the bear. I don't know if we should even cover it, but he eats a crocodile eats a bear at one point is a great scene. Two. Oh my gosh. I was just curious. Like, do they actually bears that happen? Or moves in. I don't see why wouldn't be possible for something like an alligator to take out a small bear. Okay. They certainly overlap in their range. The only thing I don't know is that it was that was a huge bear bear, and I didn't really get enough of a look at that. Bear to tell whether it was a grisly. So the first image of the bears act, I think, is a real bear. The bear that gets taken goes bits, which is CGI I bear like when it stands up and thank you. Yeah, that that I think was a real bear, and I think that was there was it was in color, but. But it was also Hugh most polite way to go. It was Brown technical breath. There is another name for the grizzly bears. Grizzly bear is a type of Brown bear share, but blackberries can also be Brown in a variety of other colors. And so it's interesting I, there's nowhere where Brown bears and like be meaning grizzly bears and alligators overlap in their range, at least at this point and. But they certainly alligators overlap with black bears, and I don't see why like a young black male or even like one hundred hundred and fifty pound black. Bear couldn't be taken out in like, you know, somewhere in the southeastern US about how the whole thing is already because they find tooth in the torso, is it likely then he lost a tooth on this squishy human, so not super like, so this happens a lot more sharks, so sharks teeth and replaced me teeth. So it's not at all uncommon that like a shark bite something, and it loses a tooth all income into the snake, bite something and loses a tooth, whatever of your things. None of my snakes. I've ever been me, but I have previously had pet snake s- that have Nick me once or twice. Yeah, free three days. He said..

"How are you going to tear apart that wildebeest well, then what they do is then they roll. Yeah, and that's about like, you know, you don't have cutlery so they've got this big mouth. This big strong mouth. They're going to grab something and they're going to roll and they're just going to twist layer off of a barrel or tear that head off the rest of the body or whatever. But they mostly do that once it's already in the water, they might also do it when they grab it, but it it just varies also for most species, you grab the thing. If it's on land, you grab it, you get back in the water, you drown drown it right. Wanna kill it as quickly as you can because you don't want to hurt you. You know, right next to that big, scary mouth or those is you don't want whatever you've grabbed kick you in the eye and then you're blind from the rest of your life. Right. So they've got to think about how do you, how do you not this thing out as quickly as possible and avoid injury. Speaking of the is I saw that there was like a myth going around that crocodiles cry when they're eating, and then they figured out that it was like they. They do. They do coming from there is You yeah. know that they do like excrete, tears, but it's just like our natural thing that happens when they eat that it's not related any emotional overheard, it's not, yeah, there is out emotional eating. They a break up and it's like the ice cream wildebeest. So some people thought like, oh, I'm finally eating them so happy. There's this whole thing about crocodile, tears. And yeah, there I forget the details of it, but there is actually some functional basis and has nothing to do with really with eating. Okay. Here's though fan named who had been write that down. I n crocodile bail role. Yeah, a little long. Yeah. Dan, crocodile death-row would probably be. Our dog, and so he's got the ideas done. He just got to execute. We have to make the metal music for don't want me trying to make any music. That's a bad idea. All right, we got it. The other one is the bite I read. They have like the strongest bite of any creature, but then also closed. You can hold it with with two fingers, right? The jaws are like week. Is that well, it's just about the direction -ality. Right? So so what they want is they want to have massive crushing force. Okay. And and for a variety of reasons, one, he's like you wanna be able to grab that prey. If it's something big, you wanna be able to drive that. Pray with the show. But you also there's lots of, you know, other prey items that are like hard shelled prey items like turtles, for example. So alligators loved turtles. Crocs will eat turtles crabs, some shelled like like various shellfish and they have to crush those. So you need to have really good bite force to crush those. Okay. But there's no functional reason to have lots of strength for opening those jaaz once their once. You've once they're sort of closed down. It's yeah, it doesn't take that much. I to keep them closed. Okay. I just said, I don't think anybody should. You know, don't be messing around with taffy. Put your hands close in China, Jinan present girl. Hey, I just thought maybe because one like once an animal is crushed and still alive, they could try to break out. That's the, you know, natural instinct probably. And if it's easy to break out, then you know they basically the same muscles that allow you to close it quickly on us to basically keep it in that same, keep it more or less that still keeping a tight grip is still about those same sort of muscles in the jaw cinching that close keeping that closed. Okay. And then but what they, what they don't have really, you know, great ability to do is then strongly open that because there's no need..

"And I think what's really happened is that in this happened all the time is that they got themselves a couple of crocs and they released them over and and you might think, oh, this never happened to Pacific region and took these go. You don't have to do that. You can mail order these things what? Absolutely. And it was way on and it was. Forty fifty years ago. It was way easier to do this, but let's not forget here we. Here we are in LA. You go to the zoo and there's Reggie. The alligator will weird Reggie. The alligator came from the mail. Basically, yes, Reggie came from lake Machado which is down in in San Pedro. So Ken Malloy harbor regional park. There's a big lake down there called lake, Machado and Reggie. The alligator was found in lake Machado. And in fact, not only was Reggie found there, but when they were pulling out Reggie, who was the bigger one that was found there, they also caught a smaller one, which is about four feet long. So here you've got to alligators swimming around the harbour regional park here in southern Los Angeles County. In this stuff happens all the time. If you Google, you know, like northern records of alligators. What you find is that lots of urban parks in much more northern cities like outside the range of alligators. You'll find these records of alligators have shown up there and it's because they were people's pets. They somehow managed to get on. Why would you want this as a pet? Let's talk people who own snakes and stuff. Yeah, yeah. Somebody who owns three snakes. Man, fantastic pets. There can be great pets, so so you take something like a snake that's going to get a maximum size of say, three, four, five, six feet. You can have a relatively small tank. Hauler than me is living in my house period. You know, you can take like I have a snake that's about five and a half feet long, and I bet ways she says something like three or four pounds. You know, it's this little. It's elongate. Yeah, super thin k. Absolutely. Fantastic animal totally totally. But that's a very, that's really different than say what it would take to keep something like an alligator, which may be you by area. Now twelve inches long, and then it ten years later, it's six feet long twenty years later. It's nine feet long. Maybe as Maxine out. It's something like ten eleven twelve feet. That's a big commitment is what happens is people buy these things not recognizing that they might very well outlive you and be they're not going to be as friendly as your puppy dog. Yeah. So then they release them. Happy is all the time too, and they get like big, you know, and this and you just, I mean, this happens all the time. So anybody who listens to this podcast Goto the nearest pond, like an urban park. All right. Okay. And look around, and I can almost guarantee them what they're going to see what they're going to see a record slider, turtles, red haired, slider, redbeard, slider turtles, little hamburger, turtles. It'd be not slider in that. So wearing a little internet hat, it's called a slider because when they're basking on logs, when they get spooked, they slide off the log into the. So the name comfort adorable, and they're actually, this is the problem is they are adorable, though. I don't wanna arterials pointless t-. I just wanna know if they've got a point on the tip of their tail a. So there they're absolutely adorable when they're young people buy them within a few years. They get big, they can't take care of him anymore. And so they dump them in the nearby pun. So literally not just in the US, but throughout much of the world, they're introduced to something like sixty countries now entirely because of releases from the pet trade. This happened all the time. I don't turtles live for like one hundred years because people by them and are ready for the fact that they're gonna live thirty forty fifty. Six really funny animal horror film when like turtles, slow bleed people. I like I mean, I think people would go see it. That's all..

"I loved his use of that. I thought that was a lot of stuff in the film I disagree with, but the the idea to just throw in a second crock somebody, you know, maybe it was a David Kelly who was like, this is genius brightness in high, but it seems like someone just threw that out there. Like one of the second crop comes out at the end, there has to be there's gotta. Be to crux, right? Because the bay because you got babies. Oh, right, right. Final scene is Betty white. You gotta have feeding the baby. So now I know that there's actually that the final scene, the crocodile on a giant flat out of drug true through the free play. For sure. I thought the door. So funny, he's just cruising as if you know some car passing that we'd be able to just keep driving straight. Yeah. Clerk put crock, they enclose horses. Air so ridiculous because they knew like there's gonna look really funny, totally, and they're right. Comedy relief. Okay. So he because you just said there is a salt water crock. There is a saltwater crock. Okay. Because there's a quote in the movie that someone says, crocodiles, can't swim in salt water. Yeah, that's that's totally wrong. There isn't a species called the salt water crack. And we know actually from from recent relatively recent radio tracking studies that they can move some really impressive distances like hundreds of kilometers in a matter of a couple of days through salt water, probably taking advantage of things like tides and currents, but we know that they're moving really large distances and this is mostly work that's been done in a way they can move large businesses, but they can't come from across the globe. We don't ridiculous. Well, I mean to get from across the globe, and you have to imagine them having to go down into like southern latitudes. Right? So really cold places and getting around things like, you know, the the, the southern tip of Africa or depending on how you want them to somehow managed magically get here. They can go on land, right? Yeah, they're not going to be their rate of speed is going to be drastically lowered. There is there. Which actually is exactly what I think is really what's going on here who actually move. Yes. So what really I mean, so they interviewed Betty white. So the sheriff's office sees Betty white in this absolutely fantastic scene feeding a full-size dairy. Cow. It was Kroc was very liberated and it was very, I love that Saint fantastic. I mean, there's also Betty white. We've definitely have not talked about enough because not alone. I can't talk about it. I mean, that alone is makes this film kind of a winner. Yeah, Betty white, feeding this dairy cow to this crock and. They don't. They see that they then start interviewing her and she says, oh, well, you know, there were two of them and they kind of follow us home one day. Like how does that? I mean, that's clearly you know, Betty white, her character is lying to the police on a regular basis throughout this. Yes..

"So there's actually so so alligators that were in sort of like northern Florida even further north than that in their native range or sometimes zoos, you know, they're Poland's would freeze over what alligators do in that situation is they actually managed to keep their snout just above the pun level. So then their metabolism is going to be super shut down at this point because they're so cold, but they're still able toddler get through the winter. They don't have to basically eat at temperatures like that. So they can wait this spring and then start taking out the poodles and stuff that are coming by on the Gulf Coast so list. So so, but they're actually right that that's how the alligators survive, but crocs can never handle temperatures eating. We're close to that. Okay. So yeah, that's accurate so far. Well, I mean, you know. Species, but there's actually some some, it sounds like somebody, you know, somebody did a little bit of research. They say, an ocean fed into this lake. Am I crazy? I thought they said the something something feeds in. I don't know if they said that specifically, but he did say that this crocodile swam across it ocean came here from across the world or there was some, and then it was a few times. Yeah, I was mentioned multiple times in the deal. So they claim that this is what they called it an Asian Pacific crocodile. Okay. So and there's no such thing as a tube. Video of like National Geographic video, take computer screen of a Nile that was the horror part film, and that was a Nile croc taking out wildebeest. And that's actually I'm, that's footage that you can find in National Geographic specials. You can probably find on YouTube to, okay, check that out. And so, but this is what the species that they talk about. They say it's an Asian Pacific to presumably is taken from the name Indo Pacific. And what do you mean taken from the name? That's not a naval there. There is a crocodile called the Indo Pacific crocodile. That's not it's more that's not as most common name. It's most common name is the saltwater crock. So the crock that you get in like northern Australia in throughout much of southeast Asia is is the saltwater crock so far. And then some people call that the Indo Pacific crock. And I think what happened is like they didn't want to call it the saltwater crock because they're in a freshwater lake in Maine. They didn't want to call it the Indo Pacific crock because it's a US audience and probably not that many people are familiar with the name, Indo Pacific. What's the reason. Pacific. We'll just talk. It's a made up name, but it's not that far off. Okay. Based on that, saltwater cook, but not you're talking about a species. It's found in southeast Asia, and then you're saying it somehow swam? Yeah, to the way the North Atlantic. And then up a bunch of freshwater rivers and streams to somehow get to this lake, which is, of course preposterous what was he running from his old life and not only kids, but there's there's two of them, right? There's not spoiler alert. I'm so sorry. I know I love how kind they were the one. And then the second one surprise on ruthlessly murdered. To be honest with you. My favorite joke of the movie. Well, I thought it was so funny how as soon as the second croc is introduced, they destroy, they blow it up into pieces and then it's like back to one. I was great. It was funny. I agree. That was a good line now, gray line to back to one. Yeah. So he'll heck of a gun to like, I don't know what that was. Ate lunch him up. I looked it up. It's not a real gun. It's actually unattached -ment four a gun and they made up. He says at one point and I didn't write it down of course because I'm a jerk. But they said like he says, like, this is a lightweight forward action aim rifle or something like that, which is actually kind of just a joke in and of itself because they're making fun of like military jargon because it doesn't make any sense what the hell he said, but that's somehow the name of the gun and it fires these like, yeah, like grenade type rounds, but it's not a, it's just an attachment. So it wouldn't actually do that. And it's supposed to be, I think, based on some sort of grenade-launching grading. But anyways, yeah, they, I don't know..

"You just said that the the poisonous or venomous snakes don't get that High North and that was something they repeated in the film a couple times. Maybe that's a ridiculous point for this film because crocodiles, don't get anywhere near main either. So. Okay. Because yes, somebody I don't remember. I think it was the sheriff who said like, how could he possibly get this far north? And so I was curious if crocodiles do get that far north or how far they get. Yeah. So there's this. There's this fantastic line and I forget actually who says it, but I was, I was so impressed that they actually had this natural history knowledge and there that somebody I think it's, I think it's the Oliver Platt character says this. He says all as long as they're as long as they're nostrils, don't freeze. They survive. And I was like, whoa, that's that's actually basically true except it's not true for all crocodilians. So talk show if you just think of like. Ause there for a second. What's a crocodilian? So crocodilians is sort of the big group name for all the species of that that are sort of alligators crocodiles thing called the Gary oil and this other group called the Caymans in this in total. Like what we have around today are twenty three species of crocodilians in the crocodiles themselves which make up the vast majority of the species are really tropical. So the northernmost crocodiles in the United States, which is the American crocodile s found throughout Florida. Well, the north, the furthest north they get is actually in Florida, but even the northernmost populations in Florida, they're mostly congregated around the outflow of a nuclear plant. So they're, they're hanging out in like this, this bath tub water in. That's probably why their numbers are so much higher that they're actually exposed to these higher temperature water and they're hanging out there. And otherwise, there's very few. There's only there's really only like, I think at this point, something like two or three hundred crock. Dials in Florida waters, and then you see them down throughout the Caribbean and along the Gulf of Mexico in through parts of northern South America until we are northward north near nuclear power plants water's warmer. So this is this is not. This is not that uncommon for a variety of species. So the northern most limits that were there facing kind of the coldest temperatures that they can deal with. Right. It turns out that that for the crocodile right now is in south Florida, and it just so happens that there's a nuclear power plant and that nuclear power plant uses waters uses, uses ocean water to cool, some of its generators. And so when that water gets piped back out, it's quite warm. Wow. So it these crocodiles have figured that out, and so they're hanging out in that warmer water than they're doing will be to me. Yeah. I mean, that's, you know, how do you get the perfect recipe for that? Mutated, crocodiles, that are terrorized sound Florida quality as if south Florida needs more sort of non native crazy animals running around the you have. So we do, I'm from south Florida, and I can tell you need more fucked up reptiles down there to eat dogs python, some of the people, some people deserve it. The pythons weren't enough. We're going to. We're going to go big and ask for a mutated crocodile. Yeah. Okay. So Burmese python then that sheriff from games York. So not was right. So he's right except that that's not true for crocodiles, crocodiles could never handle temperatures that low, but American alligators can. And in fact, if you remember back a few years ago, we had a big freeze in the southeastern US that really did massive damage to the citrus industry, but it also then some rain out of limes one Calla. That's probably true. Scary time. I was like, viral videos of of cold shock to Guan is falling from trees on your from south Florida. Some of this should sound familiar. Yeah. Yeah, I don't know so..

"I, I want to able to war and then I'm on the fence. He is. He's your man. I definitely in the middle. Okay. I was not mad watching it. Okay. I think that says a lot about a movie. I was entertained watching it I, I wasn't upset watching the film. I just for some reason there was going to be more tax lien. And yeah, I agree with that. Okay. But there were some really high quality attacks jor for Sherman. There are some grandma brash affects anytime that was a lull. They threw Bridget Burgess acid into the water, and I really respected that. Yeah, I was going to say from just the female main character scenario hit that they're setting up here. She is just. They made her very annoying and like complaining over the top. I think that was unnecessary to make that character. So she was very one dimensional. Yes, this that's actually my biggest complaint about the film. The. I mean, look, I'm a curator to natural history museum. This is supposed to be a curator at a natural history museum in York. Well, there's one really, really, really big, famous naturalist amusement York. That's the American Museum natural history. So more or less, this is like a curator from the American Museum of natural history. In somehow you're taking a paleontologist and you're supposed to suggest that they're not comfortable being in a tent or they're not comfortable area, or they're scared of mosquitoes, and it did. It bothered me that it was this like stereotype of like a woman in the woods because the reality is you take, you know, a female Curators from a major natural history museum, and she is going to be a bad ass in the woods. I would have loved. She's going to be, you know, the person with like the most natural history knowledge about these animals since she's going to be amazing campaign and she's going to be amazing that field work. Yeah, they didn't play up any of that. She could have been. She could have been this like incredibly should have been more like amazing, Oliver, Platt's character. This guy came in randomly into the film without any explanation really. And he's the one that has this tech and he's knowledgeable about the crocodiles, and she's just kind of like, I don't really want to hear damsel in distress and with no credentials. They allow him to sort of do his like, you know, here's the man with the money. We're gonna listen to what he says, whereas you know why not play up the fact that you actually have the scientists, right? Especially really should be like the super knowledgeable per head of the time people around. Absolutely. I would've loved that. And then the other female character who's very small is this like officer woman and she's just wants to have sex with. Yeah, that's it. So I thought that was wake vary. Then the earlier in the earlier woman in their Murska guitar. Her character again, back at the museum and again, like nothing but involved in some way. Try. Behind the scenes. So no one cared. The most frustrating thing about the about this movie is like how harsh toward their female characters. The exception of Betty white. Amazing. Yep. Anyway is good. Good call claims. She killed her husband. We ended up. Did she lies to the cops. That was a lie. She lied to the cops about killing her. She had not actually killed her husband. Yeah, the crocodile in and out a little bit of the totally. Yeah. If you were following intensely, I'd be more. Let's so in fact. The movies, like what eighty five minutes or something. I laughed out loud. It's just long time. Yeah, yeah. It's not. I wouldn't call it a horror movie. It's just a mean, I think if you're into that Jonah of like these weird animal movies, this one. It's a weird animal movie. Yeah, totally. Terms is not true. Not a horror, comedy, how are you trying? Yeah, yeah, Shurmur is is good. It's fun. And this movie was fun too. I'm not trying to crap on it. It was fun. Just a little I, yeah, I little week..

"But like in this awkward like predictable way and like nothing was fun about it, this movie was definitely fun. They were. They were definitely the whole time, like we know we're making a silly film. Yeah, come along with us a little bit. I think I think that's the key to me is like if you're the kind of like if you go into this movie thinking like this is going to be a blockbuster movie like you're gonna hate it right. If you're into those movies like the John of like, okay, there's some weird animal situation. And then these weird animals terrorize a small town, possibly because of some government conspiracy that went awry. If that's the kind of stuff that you're into, like if you're into like the tremors Anaconda? Yeah, there's a fantastic. Fantastic in the sense that I love this movie, there's this movie called bats, which has Lou diamond Phillips in which is about the US military modifying these bats to somehow being used for. I don't know. This sounds good. And then they pretend it was New Mexico and start rampaging. This town Lou diamond Phillips is the sheriff, and then there's this wildlife biologist who comes in who like show. Right. And then the wildlife biologist, if the wildlife biologist is female, is this very attractive woman and it's like the same. If you're into like those kinds of movies, those like ridiculous who fi movie was, then you're going to, you're also going to likely. I just wanted into be cranked up more. I guess not enough for me. It was a little more mild than I thought that it should be like Anaconda by the way. Great example. I've seen the movie of bunch of times when I was little. I don't know why I watched it a lot. Maybe it was just on, but there's so much chaos in that movie and all the characters are turned up to ten. Sure. They're all ridiculous. The worst CGI of any film that's ever been made? Yeah. Trek from the movie necessary. Ges? Yeah, it kind of makes sense in a weird way, but I wanted to make fun of the writing like I did a little bit earlier, but then I looked up this guy, David e Kelley. Do you guys know who this? Is that name? Yeah, exactly. It's not like a friend's writer, is it? I don't. I don't maybe probably friends because as I looked it up, I don't know what you wrote on every he. Yeah, he was a lawyer, I, and then he decided like I'm going like move to Hollywood and get into show business. I guess at some point did streudel he created picket fences, Chicago hope, the practice alley mcbeal Boston public Boston. Little lies. I mean, he's a little lie. He's created and written and like been this show runner for so much. He's the only not the only, but it said one of very few screenwriters to have created shows that aired on all top four commercial US, television networks, ABC CBS FOX and NBC, and he wrote a powering wrote, and he wrote. It's one of the few movies that he wrote, oh my God, I just then I realized, because again, I was initially going to be like, oh my God. What is this? Who did this? What a mess? And then I realized like, you know what? This dude was probably just like on vacation scribblings shit, drunk because he writes a long form like on a yellow pad and just said, like whatever this is a weird thing or comedy, whatever the fuck make it if you want, and then they all may and he produced it and it all came together and made a bunch of money. So vibe sequels to it. Yeah. I wonder how much role any of these people had in the sequels though little tonight. Sure. There was a party for some of those, right? But if you get together and for Lake Placid, you look at the the list of actors in this movie, and there's. Amazing, incredibly talented people. Absolutely. Yeah. Love Bill, Pullman, Oliver. Glad I love it. Yeah, but he went, what's the guy's name though? I should have in front of me, of course, but I don't, but he's in gangs in New York and like twenty weeks ladies. He doesn't. Gangs of New York listening to this. I'm sure you're saying like, it's this guy. Anyways, he's awesome. And I think he's great. So so interesting. We all sort of like the movie in one respect or another. We're fans of Lake Placid minus you. I am on the. I'm a huge fan..

"But, but okay, let me let me start here. Did you guys see this movie for the pod for the first time or had you seen it before gimme your your Lake Placid experience? I don't know when I first saw Lake Placid, but I saw the movie in its entirety within a few years at coming out. I wish I could say I saw it in the theater, so probably early two thousand dollars early two, thousands, and I have not seen it at an at least fifteen years. Right? Because why would you do that? I'm gonna put it on my list of like, watch every couple years on love revisit. I remembered that I loved this movie. I watched it again and I was like, how come it's been fifteen years since I watched this movie movies. Fantastic. So kind of similarly, when you walk, did I was gonna say you really enjoy the film seemed warm. I'd find memories of it like I saw it in theaters for sure you win. Oh, japa- I was. I've always been a movie. I love movies. So this this is around Anaconda time to. But I was like a young teen, I think, and it was one of those dropped off in the movie theater picked up from the theater, but I, I loved it, but I'm Scott so many elements of this Betty white being the main one. Yeah. Anyway, credit. I was like, what is that a joke, blackout memory coming back. You know, that's what what I remembered of the movie. In fact, like the only thing I remember to the movie was Betty white, absolute fan. I don't want to cut cut too far forward, but fantastic scene where speeding. She's feeding the cow to the crocodile. Remember that clears day. Remember that, and I just remembered none of the rest of the movie. Yeah, it's not. I mean, I'm going to play devil's advocate here to you guys because I thought this movie was ridiculous. I thought it was barely a film if I can say that I want to agree again. I love that about, yeah, it was fun. I just there's certain moments in these movies, and I want to say these movies like like horror movies because I think there is an ongoing because it's it's categorized as like horror, romance, comedy. Yeah, the romance, Betty white in the allegation. There's some. There's some. I wouldn't say romance, but there's a little. There's a little sexual tension go darts because she has her office fling disaster happen. Yes, which is so funny by the way, the exposition, their explained by her friend or whatever that was so funny. But a lot of the dialogue, I just felt like it was not like if they had them improvise it would have been so much better probably than what they were actually saying. Because a lot of certain lines where I was just I wanted to laugh and I wanted to enjoy it in the way that you enjoy a bad film for being bad. But it was just in this weird gray area of like it's not terrible. It's not like bad grammar or like really bad delivery, like the acting is pretty good. And yet there's, I don't know. There's lines were like Oliver Platt says, like, you have boobs or there's there's lines like that where I just didn't know what to do or how to feel. Sure. Yeah. So it was a weird experience. Did you see the Meg? I keep bringing up the Meg have not seen the mic. I wanted it to be Lake Placid, which I thought was kind of kooky and stupid, but the Meg totally phone does grey zone where it was like very, like structured..

"Ethan, Edinburgh, today we're talking about a classic award winning film called Lake Placid. I have two wonderful guests with me. Of course, first of all, I'd like to introduce Dr Greg, paulie the associate curator of herpetology at the natural history museum. Dr in the hat. Fantastic audience. Yeah, we're psyched up. How's it going? Greg, how you doing? I'm doing great. How are you guys? I'm doing very well. It's good to see you. Thank you also with me is a wonderful comedian. We've been now hanging out for about half an hour talking about HAMAs and walk moly this Nowy tower. Hey, nothing. I mean, we were such a good audience. I'm not impressed. Whatever they go bad that I missed the conversation about HAMAs and guacamole, how did you ever we were? We're basically slamming store-bought HAMAs by celebrating ethan's dad's recipe which I've never had, but I think it's just natural homemade HAMAs. You need to go fresh. That's all I'm saying. This is not the same. We also we had a sidebar about guac. You can't do store-bought. Guac is a disaster zone. You're supposed to watch. Welcome only spoil in front of your eyes. Yes, as you're eating it, there's always a little bit at the end that the Little Brown. Yeah. No, I had the good guac. Exactly. Yeah. It's not like I'm going to finish that on Thursday bit. Throw it out. Yeah, Browns lime people living in southern California. We might be slightly biased because we have. Great. But what about like someone's in North Dakota? And it's like their only option. Good. I've never had HAMAs before bro. They don't even know what let me ask you this, though. This is really the most important Lake Placid related question to start with HAMAs guacamole. If you had to pick one, what are you going with? This is actually, I hate to admit this, but I'm actually allergic to avacado. The allergic my mouth gets itchy and like my tongue, like my my whole mouth just gets incredibly itchy. So I'll eat it, but I read it and get out. Yeah, so that's how it started for me. But guacamole is so good yet. I continue to eat like just a few chips. Whereas in now, if I have like two chips, oh my God walking moly. I'll get the same mouth. No issue. Swells up a little bit so uncomfortable that it's no longer this that allergies, like build up over time and all of a sudden one day you could your throat could close up, oh my God, I'm terrified. But yeah, this is this. Less than a thirty foot crocodile. Both green. Both green boat scary. Yeah, I was going to say HAMAs to only be as HAMAs also comes in so many varieties. Yes, I'm a, I'm a variety. I, I love guac, but yeah, if I had to answer, I'm going home is strong. I think you can have it. Yeah, anytime of the day. So many things. Yeah, you can have it on on pita. You can have it with carrots. I mean, get really. Yeah, you can have it during sex..
