The orcs are like the wicked witch and Wizard of Oz, right? Yeah, you don't want to. But think about the biggest heroes in Lord of the Rings are the weakest characters. I mean, Sam and Frodo are three foot hobbits who would rather stay in the Shire eat 7 meals a day and drink beer. They're not the kind of people that are going to save middle earth from Sauron. They're just not going to do it, but they're the ones that do it. Why? Because Tolkien being a Christian said, when you're weak, you are strong. And so Sam and Frodo had to had to rely on others to help them in order to pull off the unthinkable that they were going to get through more door and put the ring in the volcano and all that. And somehow they did it because when they were weak, they relied on others. Well, I guess I should say, I'm not surprised that J.R.R. Tolkien would write this epic fantasy that would point to God. But it's worth talking about that more and then talking about the movies, the stories that were not written by Tolkien, which is, to me, it's even more fascinating because he got this stuff as he was doing it.

"A shortbread or stone which sounds delicious And they generally include nuts or nut oatmeal plus some vanilla and cinnamon. Which most of the baker's apologize for Since they're tropical plants and dust. You know wouldn't wouldn't be in probably wouldn't be in there but you never know what else get up to that's true that's true In the films the proper limbaugh's-s bread with a similar to an unsweetened shortbread the primary goals. Make something that looked in crumbled like llamas and was also Edible acting yes acting is key actors Because of this sean astin who played samways ganji reported that the taste was quite terrible. On the dvd commentary also in the films olympus was redundantly called limpets bread since the introductory scene with the explanation of wetlands is was cut out of the first film that is in extended cut. But isn't everything. I kind of yup. Yeah i'm pretty sure it was like four hours long goodness anyway It did go on to play a pivotal role in later films. Notably when ghalem crumbles up frodo and sam supply of olympus and frames sam by planting crumbs on his cloak. Trixie trixie And is there a study any of course there's a study. Of course there is from sky rosetti and crucial mahara aharon out of the university of chester. Who set out to determine how much olympus the fellowship would have needed for ninety two day journey if olympics was there only estimates to do this the metabolic rates derived from a previous study. Were used for each of the species involved and yes. There was a previous that came to the conclusion that the daily calorie consumption for thirty four year old male would be one thousand eight hundred eighteen point six one calories for a hobbit one thousand seven hundred and two point two for human and one thousand four hundred sixteen point nine five elves who From that and assuming that the group and never got separated okay There's a lot of substance here that i had never been captured born never died. I'm sorry and gandalf had never done this thing tangled with the ballroom. The fellowship would have needed a collective sixteen thousand one or forty seven point six eight calories a day to make the journey. I love the. I love the points. I love the anyway given that a single piece of limbaugh can sustain a man for an entire day and taking into account the amount of time and difficulties spent daily on travel. There's a whole chart included. There's a whole chart for this Olympus was determined to be two thousand six hundred thirty eight point five calories like a piece of lumber. That's how many calories are in like unit. Yes okay this means that to make the trip tomorrow or the fellowship would need six hundred seventy five pieces of limps at least at least because habits have big appetite. Yeah we've talked about that but they're small endurable both limousine habits but here we're talking elements so in theory. Fictionally plausible are plausible fictionally. Yeah i did share. The article ended with questions for further thought such as the gluten content and possible side effects from living off limits for several weeks. I'm sure more research is forthcoming. The of this study by the way is simply walking into mortar. How much limits fellowship. If needed. oh man narrates is great. The chart blew my mind. I also found a forum with debate about the plausibility of lambeth without magic. There's a whole nother argument. There generally agreed that it must be magic. Although someone went and bought up clark's law to argue that it is it. Oh anyway it went pretty in depth as to the protein carb and fat content. You need and how you'd make it using evil techniques because of course And the widely accepted conclusion. Was that you'd need some elven magic or nevada. That was the theory. Also one of the comments was limbaugh is actually pizza. Just being me happy about that before but man limits could just be pizza. It really could be. Wow i'm just to give you some scope here if you assume that a piece of lambeth is about the size and weight a large cookie or a slice of bread that is like about fifty grams or so like two thousand. Six hundred calories is just an insane number of calories yeah for that amount of food like even pure lard only has about four hundred and fifty calories per a unit of that size so elven. Magic is what i'm betting on. Yeah i mean if you think. The daily recommended value of calories for the average adult two thousand. Yeah so that's more than that in one cookie. Yeah so elves oh right so yeah We also wanted to talk a little bit about some of the other foods that appear in lord of the rings But first we're going to take another quick break for word from our sponsor if you have a phone and the free iheartradio app you have thousands of podcasts on demand the you can binge anytime you want from anywhere.

As as appearance goes olympics are brownish on the outside and cream colored on the inside they were described as being sort of wafer like and pretty tasty with a bit of sweetness gimli. The dwarf claims there are better than cram which is another thing. I had to look up. It's a biscuit made by men and it's also better than honey cakes which are made by the yearnings. Apologize for that accent. I put on there to computers matters. Lettuce is written as being made with corn. The probably not actually corn but something like wheat because tolkien was british and british called corn maize and grains corn. Oh okay yes. Perfect limbaugh's also contains the fruit to aka the nut tree Which we know is silvery on the outside but we don't know much else about it's probably a good source of protein though In there for a good thing to put an fancy elvin protein bar yes in the recipe of limbaugh's-s with something kind of proprietary for the l. b. rarely did they share it with any non elves and evil or corrupted creatures. Like i dunno gov They've found lumbers along with most products of the elves as offensive him. Outright would not even try stuff And the word limbers comes from what we outside of the lord of the rings call elvin but to be more specific this en- dorian word for wave bread and another elvis language. Kenya olympus is called squamous our life bread so yeah sin darn is a. It's like a subset of elvan. Elven languages man. We're really earning up all right.

Dial it up a bit. Oh wait what what already. Uh twisting that now even further. Let's talk some in book orleans limbaugh's history or would i like to call an outline real fake history so in elvis lower the creation of goes way back to the volley ivana vala is the singular form of villar which lauren mentioned earlier and they were these powerful beings whose purpose was to give orders to the world. Ivana was one of these valor called the giver of fruits and or the lady of the earth and as name suggests she was in charge of planting and growing. The first plants excess. Yeah it does once. The elves made their great journey to amman. And there's a whole thing about this learnings fans know exactly what the great journey. But it's a thing yvonne abroa- they went there. Yes they brought them special corn again. probably wheat To plant this special corn most likely was and is the key ingredient to olympus the cream of with me on had the recipe i leader passing it to gladly along with other elves. And as we said she was the first galadriel to plant it and give it to the ship and she gave them quite a bit. How much though. And whether much whether that would have survived for their entire journey go. We're going to talk about it. We are yeah. They're numbers involved. There's math meanwhile back in what some people might call the real world. Tolkien was roman. Catholic and some readers have suggested that lettuce is directly influenced by the by the bread or the wafer part of the of the eucharist. The holy communion You know the whole This wine is my blood. This bread is my body kind of thing And especially influenced by the holy communion by the holy communion. That's given as part of a a practitioners last rites which is called the viatical and means something like a provision for a journey in this practice of the viacom is meant to ensure the dying person's into a into eternal happiness and limbaugh in the stories is also said to be more effective during fasting and to feed the will as much as the body so totally totally lines up a token acknowledged. This can connection but said that it was unintentional well back to some numbers some science some real role. Yeah yeah if it's possible.

"Going to pass the limbaugh's fred. We're going to walk straight into mortar. Oh yeah no no. It's going to be. It's going to be harsh but we're going to be so well fed for the journey. That's true yeah Which habits would certainly appreciate also probably appreciating it. Our listeners including kate. Erica crafty viking. And asha other people. I think requested it so many. I stopped recording names. I'm sorry but thank all of you. Yes and i remember a listener. I think we read the the email but Try to make some limits so yeah yeah missed that one. Oh that sounds that sounds great. It's a difficult undertaking is So lord of the rings is full of food culture and that sorta says by the way. Oh yes in the lord of rain. We should probably mention that for people who aren't gigantic nerve on such a nerd level. We just assume. Yeah yeah but by. Jr tolkien So it's a whole book thing and a movie mandate tv show things soon to come all right yeah but y- the books have a lot of food in them partially because the habits that are kind of the main characters are really fond of eating. Oh yeah in the prologue to fellowship of the ring. Which is the first book. In the trilogy token writes their faces the habits were as a rule good natured rather than beautiful broad bright red cheeked and with mouths apt to laughter and eating and drinking and laugh. They did and eat and drink often and heartily being fond of simple gestures at all times and of six meals day when they could get them six meals a day. I remember I don't know how many of you listeners had a program called. ar accelerated reading or something similar at school. Oh yeah yeah but you get points for reading books. And when i was in fifth grade i read lord of the rings and i was so discouraged by how descriptive all the food wasn't. I love food. I was like well. This is a lot too much. I'm gonna be quizzed on this. And i won't be able to respond. There's a lot of detail in the books mostly about like trees and running but mushrooms and mushrooms. Yeah there's a lot of battle yeah In the books you can count those Six meals as breakfast morning. Tea or elevensies lunch afternoon. Tea supper and dinner But the seven that pippen rattles off in the fellowship. Movie our breakfast. Second breakfast elevensies lunch afternoon. Tea dinner and supper. I'm not sure how the two of those got supper and dinner got switched around future episode. Oh just on that. I think we could. There's there's a lot of debate about the meaning of these terms in on the internet But either way yes. Habits like food and the food that they like. Best is a earthy victorian english countryside. Type food. the the sort of things that you can grow and cook locally from temperate climate You know mushrooms as we said bacon beer honey apples blackberries eggs butter cheese bread scones sweet and savory pies potatoes turnips and carrots Roast meats stews pickles. Stuff like that might make six meals out of all that food. If i could as well. I would make one meal out of all of that six times a day. Ooh a hobbit meal yes new trend yes in the two towers of the narrator explains all habits of course can cook for. They begin to learn the art before their letters which many never reach. I can cook. Of course they can cook. And how this type of food probably came about in the bucks in. Tolkien was born in eighteen. Ninety two and grew up in a sort of idyllic league rural old fashioned hamlet near the sort of grimly urban industrial centre of birmingham. He once wrote to a fan that he was basically from the shire. And that quote. I am in fact a habit in all its size. So does this mean that birmingham was like more door kind of thing. It might have been think so. It's from all the descriptions from from the from the areas that he grew up. It sounds like wow yeah. Sorry about at birmingham. I'm sure i'm sure it's lovely. I've never been it is Also posited the token being something of an english nationalist created the lord of the rings universe and its peoples and languages as sort of a substitute for the unified mythology. That england lacks England having such a diverse and kind of turbulent history with a lot of different people's token wrote in a letter to milton waldman in nineteen fifty one a few years before fellowship was first published. I was from early. Days grieved by the poverty of my own beloved country. It had no stories of its own bound up in. Its tongue in soil not of the quality that i sought and found as an ingredient in legends of other lands there creek and celtic and romance germanic scandinavian and finish which greatly affected me but nothing english saved for impoverished checkbook stuff so He decided to read some books that he did. And i have to say when we chose this topic. I thought it would be simple. I don't know how you felt warren. I think everything's going to be simple. I'm not simple. I was reading. Elvis lor and so overwhelmed and i liked lord of the rings and i still like ordering but he wrote a lot. He did a lot of Of back matter if if y'all have never Experienced trying to read like this million and stuff like that there's there's universes upon universes yeah of writing about yes. This already very dense series. Exactly it's beautiful. It is Of course being an adventure series the the main lord of the rings though Our habits couldn't always count on those civilized six or seven meals per day They had to make do with what they could travel with or forage for those same wise ganji notably bring some basic cooking supplies all the way to mortar with him. A couple of wooden spoon Cooking fork some salt But yes most of the time the fellowship does not have time for cooking which brings us to lend it. Does limbaugh's-s sometimes called elvin bread or way. Bread as you may have gathered is a bread created by els to sustain you traveling you know like a protein bar type thing to keep you satisfied for when you decide to hike up mount to one of those days or many months many days days from the novel the fellowship of the ring. Tolkien wrote eat little at a time. And only at need for these things given to serve you when all else fails. The cakes will keep sweet for many many days if they are broken and left in their leaf wrappings as we have brought them one. We'll keep a traveler on his speech for a day of long labor. Even if he be one of the tall man of meanest tarif. Yeah so it's way better than a protein bar way better and the leaf wrappings are lorne. Leaves away lauren. trees The plural of which is malone n- uh-huh uh-huh because tolkien. They are the primary trees that make up the force of laurean where the Where the fellowship party picks up there. Now they're huge trees. These smooth grey silver bark and leaves are green on top and silver underneath if you were wondering they were originally from a neighbouring continent to middle earth called mon The inhabited lands. They're called Valentina inhabited by the villar which are sort of god like people and elves brought the trees with them to other places from their gladio herself. planted the seeds.

"Hello and welcome to save protection of iheartradio any wreath and i'm laurin vogel bomb. And today we have classic episode for you about lemba and other food of the world of middle earth and this one was such a delight. I when lauren brought this went up i was like well. Let's rerun this first thing. I thought it was all of the math involved. That was the very first thing. I thought of so good. Yeah that was an amazing. Find it's so it's so nerdy And just we're clearly reveling in it and it makes me so happy other this air all the way back in november of 2017 which was when the news broke that amazon had just bought the rights to the lord of the rings cinematic universe for television adaptation and coincidentally. I didn't realize this until. I pitched the idea but there was just news. That dropped today. that that series has wrapped filming and they have a debut date of september. Second twenty twenty two low. Yeah and i know a couple days ago there. A big sur. Because you could see some of the first photos. Yeah i'm from it And yeah that's that's exciting. I loved. I've loved just kind of randomly catching tidbits of news from it of the casting calls or like people the strange faces and like okay. I'm into it and that's really exciting. And then lauren. And i we were just talking about phantom and how interesting fandom can be and i was a huge especially at the movies when they came out. It's huge lord of the rings fan But as p listeners. No i love fan fiction and lord of the rings was one of the very first fan. Fictions really got into. And i the time i had really slow internet and had a thirty minute time period. So print out fan fiction share to read it later and i printed out this lord of the rings fan fiction that i did not realize was seventy two chapters long and the chapters. Were like big long. Like i. I had i hole punched all i wrapped it and it was like i. I'm making a hand gesture you can't see but it was like a foot tall stack of like eight by eleven goodness and luckily i liked. It did get really really dark even for me. But i just remember being like wow. I hope i don't get to chapter three. And this is trash to the recycling bin with you Goodness yeah that's a. That's a phantom. I never really got into. But i did I did read the hobbit when i was in like third grade or something And got super super super into the books And then was so excited when the movie started coming out which happened when i was in. What was that like like middle school high school. Something like that and So that was glorious. But but yeah i what a. What a wonderful. Oh and are in some of what we talk about in. This episode happens Way before the events of the hobbit and lord of the rings In the prior eras of of middle earth and It turns out this. Tv series is indeed about the second age of middle earth which is out of years before the hobbit and lord of the rings so so nerdy second age obviously clearly. It is done. My dad was a big fan and he knew the supplemental material. Yeah and he. Would you know occasionally bring up something from what was a similar similar trillion. And i'd be like.

"For less than the cost of what it takes me to feed my family at Wendy's on the drive thru on Saturdays. I mean, it's you know, I could still have $8 left over. I know it exactly. It's $38.73 for us to get our normal Saturday lunch for five For less than that. You can cure a child forever in friends. There's 507 as we sit here right now, on this list that need our help. And their many more than that, But could we help 52 Today they'll be 52 That'll be diagnosed with it today. Could we help 52 today? Could we cure 52 today? And at least hold serve on this day right now where we are. How many could you do? Could you do three Children? They'd be $90 gift. Could you do four? That's $120. Could you do $550? If you have a little bit more means at this time of year Or maybe you're coming down the stretch, and you're looking for a significant Tax deductible gift for your family and for your stewardship. If you could do $3,533,000. Any amounts of these would obviously go to help your kids and set them free. So I don't want to limit God's vision for your heart and your mind and you're feeling and what you're experiencing. If God is tapping you on the shoulder, there's a reason for that. Pay attention to it. Obey it. Um, It's not my job to tell you what it is. But there is no mistake that you turned on the radio right now. You heard Scott. Tell that story. You're hearing us talk about this. This is a divine appointment. 809 79 1988 109 79 1980 Scott. There's another reason why this is important And that is the Gospel is part of what lm does for these families Talk about how curing a kid gets. The whole village is attention. No, It's exactly right, Kevin. And by the way, here's some hammering in the background. We were contribute the economy here. That's my that's actually the mice in my head, but just, you know, working hard, but it's all about really the Gospel. I mean, I I know that what gets our attention is well. Leprosy still exist. Wow. We can provide the cure. We can really do what Jesus did by saying yes. I will provide this cure that gets our attention. But you gotta remember this. It's not that Jesus was curing leprosy for the cures sake alone. What was the problem with leprosy? The prom with leprosy was in addition to the physical There was a societal and it was the thing that we say. Unlike really, almost every the disease takes away everything that makes you human. So what Jesus was able to do Is to restore people to dignity. And so when we introduced him to the gospel, especially in parts of the world where there is I called so like middle Earth, there is a battle for the souls of men right in the middle of the continent of Africa, and there are lots of forceful religions and beliefs that are working very hard. To take over every single country that they can. When we can deliver the cure for leprosy you can have, for example, a tribal chief. Who will say Look at what they were able to do. Listen to everything they have to say. And then we're able to say why did we do this? We do this in Jesus name. We want to produce you to the one that gives us this love for you even love for people that we've never met. And will likely in our lifetime. Never see again. That is not a love of man. It's not from us. It is from the Lord. And so we're able to share the gospel. It's It's huge. I mean, you know when you can Bring the cure to a child in a family. That family certainly is open to hearing your matches message about why you do it. And then, of course, it goes beyond that to the extended family. So many families live like three or 45, different families and you and all your cousins and they all live together. Or it certainly could be beyond that, even into the level of an entire village. I mean, 2000, people could be impacted from gospel simply by your $30 gift. Or, you know, $30 a month would cure a child of leprosy every month for less than a dollar a day. We call the $30 a month people the miracle partners, So we need you at every level. Big, big one time. Any size one time or the month, please. And that's why we get it done together today. 809 79 1988 109 791980 Kevin McCullough. Glad to have you with us. Please give right now maybe online is faster and easier for you. That's simple.

"middle earth" Discussed on Absurdity with Ryan Becker

"Response to tragedies, where there are clear, very clear, victims or even just victims in general. You don't have to take sides. You can take the time to say to be empathetic to quote both sides or all sides, so for example with George Floyd it was revealed that one of the officers one of the officers that had only been on the force for three days had just graduated from police academy a year ago and wall Derek Chavez on George flights neck that officer actually spoke up twice and said Hey. Should we do something different and Chovanec or Chardonnay a veteran of twenty years or nineteen years on the force, said no, that's why we have him in this business. We don't need to do any of that. Do you know how hard it is to speak up to a guy who's vinduer job for twenty years and it's your third day. Your heart is to get in now. We can get on him for not doing right. Yeah, but look also empathize with just how hard in the moment so when then? This really is a day on the job like it's not. It's not an excuse out all, but you can empathize with that go. I don't want him to face the exact same charges that the other three cops are facing. He spoke up and and actually tried to do something and. He could have tried harder wrong and he's still involved with what happened. Absolutely their show. There's repercussions and consequences, but I don't think he should be facing the exact same thing that someone who had their neon lights neck, furred, nine minutes should which is the point of empathy, right? That's the point of appetizing situation. It softens you, and it allows you to get in the situation and present yourself with. Sarah Vulnerability, but a sense of transparency, and like to actually I took the time to get the situation Empathy is never divisive. It's only divisive. To people who are not empathetic. So people who WANNA hate. They're not going to have in the empathy. Yeah, and they will they. They will call your empathy divisive because they don't feel today haven't taken the time to see it that way or put themselves in that situation on both sides. Now that doesn't mean. Because, you can empathize with you. Know Sarah and be like well. I totally got like I I WANNA. Take over, you know. Middle Middle Earth too. Don't empathize. To like you. Do you have to use it in the context, but the idea was to identify with the pain the situation. I think I think the idea there is. Don't let empathy drive everything you do, but at least let empathy influenced how you respond, and it's a good way to filter out. Right so if there's a politician talking about the situation. Do you sense empathy in there. Right so you were talking about the response to Montgomery. There are a lot of people responding to that. How many people responded with? As a mother as a father asa brother, how many people did not I think that's the biggest difference where you can tell turn people have. SOCIOPATHIC tendencies not to be dramatic, but you can tell. was. The picture that went viral of a protester who said when they're signed said when George Floyd said helped me Mama. That was a call to all MOMS, and and there was a whole bunch of moms around her, and that's the kind of thing that's empathy is is is like when you hear that as a mom like that that that lands hits and you feel like. What if that was my son? Exactly what if that was my son? I think another thing for instance. When you're across.

Middle Earth Minute: The Numenoreans

"I'm going to be talking about. The Newman orients the new minorities. Were that race of men. If you remember in the movie airborne was a new minority in. They had a long life and they got their start. After the downfall of more goth sirens master Saharan fled but the gods the allies what they're called rewarded the men a group of men for helping in the defeat of Serotonin more goth and gave him this island. I king of the Newman orients was l Ross. And he had a brother named L. Ronde as we know from the movies they were half Elven so they could pick either the immortality of the elves or the mortality of the men so l. Ross chose to be one of the men but also the land that they got from the valor. They also gave them long life as we know in the movie airborne was seventy six seventy eight. I think if I remember correctly so they gave these men. The Newman orients extended life. They typically lived around four hundred years of age sometimes a little longer later on. They didn't live quite as long. But we'll get that in the later on this island really good. They loved the valor on the Gods and everything good but slowly but surely they started to decline. They wanted not only a long life. They wanted immortality like the elves became jealous of the elves and wanted immortality. They were told that they can never visit the West. If you remember in the movies the end Bilbo and Frodo and Gandalf and some of the others went on a ship and went to the West. They went to this place called the undying land. The deal the valor made with the new minorities was that you can have long life but you can never go to. The undying land will later on generations later thousands of years later in fact they said No. No we're not going to be banned from that. They call it the ban. R- actually going to go to the undying land anyway. And so sorry. Ron Shows up on the scene later. On the Newman Guide extremely wealthy and very arrogant. And that's why they decided to say you know what we're going to them dying land anyway. We don't care we're better. We know better and sarin help feed that. In fact he came to the island as a prisoner and faked being captured by one of the minority and kings. And that's where all this got started. And the Valor said. We're not having any of that. As soon as one of the kings went to the undying land he destroyed the army and sunk the island. And so basically. This is tokens version of Atlantis. But as we know some of airborne's relatives he still door remember. He was from new minore. They left the island before it sank and established colonies in middle earth. And there's where we get gone door fascinating fascinating story. I definitely don't do it. Justice but the whole story has a lot of intrigue and you can find a detailed story of this in the Sylmar million towards the back. It's called the Cala Bath and it's only about thirty pages long and goes into much more detail of the capturing of SAR on and the deception. He gives the king and how he moves. The Newman orients down that dark dark path to the point that they start doing human sacrifices as well. Then there's another book called. The Tales of new Minora and middle earth has even more little short stories about the different kings of new minore and how they had shifted over the years and started getting more evil also in the return of the king. If you remember there's those a pen nixes in the back there's one in there called Appendix B. That gives you an outline a time line. Excuse me of the second age which is when this whole Numidian. Time-line took place and it gives an outline of the second age and talks about how they started. And how you can see there that they slowly disintegrated down to basically evil so you get little tidbits of the new minority ans even in the Lord of the rings books the Cala Bath and the other. The unfinished tales of numerous men are numerous middle. Earth just gives you more detail. One of the quotes from the tales of numerous middle earth is this. They turn their play into great matters and great matters into play. I thought that was just a fun quote from the book and that one details of middle earth is written by Tolkien but edited by his son. Just like the Iranian Christopher Tolkien so what Christopher Tolkien did in a nutshell is take little stories that his dad wrote but never finished and kind of put them together. In a more cohesive matter. Not The best as you know by. The million is very disjointed. But that's the best he could do so he might find a couple of paragraphs about the new minority in kings over here and he finds another two three or four pages about the numerous Newman. Orients over here and put them all into one book? And that's what he did definitely check out the bath in the back of the sylmar million or tales of new minore in middle earth or both good and the Cala bath is very short so you can probably sit down and read those thirty pages very quickly and it's just a fun read.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson: I Am More Than Science

"Neil degrasse Tyson. It's one of the most brilliant people alive but when we finally got together for an interview I WanNa talk to him about science. I WanNa talk about almost anything else. So we get into who he is a deep about. How race has impacted his life. The book concludes with Attribute Kim say to your father your sorry Eulogy Yes yes and You Know I lost my dad last year Owen did. Your Dad passed three years ago. Three years ago and You honor him beautifully. Can you tell us about him? And how he leads into you sort of the way you sort of take from him to become who you are. Yeah So my parents were married. Sixty sixty four years until his death to the end right now and We had a stable household. My mother was a housewife homemaker. Today I guess we call that Until were empty nest and she went back to school. That was by agreement by the way so the agreement was my father would continue working and then my mother would raise the children at home. There were three of you. Yes and the middle earth and raise the children and then when we were mostly empty nest enough she will go back to school and pick up her career which is exactly what happened. And she went back to College. She got a degree in Gerontology. Became a German got her masters Gerontology. The study of the needs that afflict old people. Okay Okay and how to resolve Geriatric Okay. Yes correct to gerontology geriatrics the same route And she ended up working for the FEDS. Allocating moneys to retirement communities Old Age centers nursing homes this sort of thing so my father was studied sociology and got his Masters at Teachers College Columbia and was always his entire life. Maximally concerned with the plight of the under served and in New York City in the nineteen sixties. It was then known as the ghetto. He got noticed by the city. He got pointed to be a commissioner of human resources by Mayor Lindsay in the nineteen sixties during the most turbulent years of the civil rights movement in the big cities he. He worked long hours. We'd see me come at eight something like that. But he was home on the weekends and we would Cook Breakfast and dinner on the weekend so he participated household when he could but during the week it was mostly my mother who was raising us. And what reference in my eulogy are things that he said and did that contain called deep levels of wisdom. You know what is wisdom? It's it's ideas. It's wisdom our thoughts that you have that are the distilled essence of your life experience after you've discarded or forgotten the details that's actually a necessary part of wisdom that allows wisdom to come out in the form of sentences. No one's GonNa hand you a five hundred page book and say here's my wisdom. That's that's that's not wisdom wisdom almost fi construct has to be so simple and so deep that you just pause and reflect on it without getting mired details so one of them was. It's not good enough to be right. You also have to be effective. You can say I'm right therefore it should be this way. You know we don't have time for you. Have you navigated a pass to make this happen? Have you bought for example? The you know the water hoses and the in the south during the during the protests. Okay why do we have perfect video and photographs of it? Beacause the organizers made sure the press was there knowing they'd be able to capture those conflicts. This was even done even go back as far as Gandhi This was portrayed in the film Gandhi where he's ready to have a protest. It is not useful if no one knows about it if you get your head whipped by the local police and there isn't a photograph of it. You are in the right but you're not effective so you invite the press. The sympathetic press so that for me was very important in getting things done in navigating the terrain on which you're trying to implement social justice and the press doesn't write about events that don't happen why would they well in the late nineteen sixties watts burned. Detroit burned Washington burned. You're newark burned. New York City did not burn. The most populous ghetto in the country was basically quiet in the wake of the Martin Luther King assassination. Yes there was some minor skirmishes compared to what was going on elsewhere. No does anyone write a story no riots in New York The story is written. My father was active in the human resources administer. He's the commissioner a city commissioner. Making sure that there were opportunities available to people who needed opportunities for jobs to feed their family. What is a riot if it's not the very last act of desperation of the mouthpiece of the voiceless it is the it it not only voiceless people who are also hopeless Once you've run out of hope you have no options. You can have no voice but still hope you're not gonNA rock it. You gotta be voiceless and hopeless in it. Yeah so people in New York. The inner city of New York didn't was not without hope without some confidence that maybe there are opportunities just on the other side of the hill. I'm just saying these are things that my father was engaged in that I will not ever forget. I'm their son the astrophysicist but I stayed grounded in what matters for any kind of progressive change in this world and for me progressive. Change IS THE INEVITABLE. Consequence of rational thought applied to challenges. So no I'm not hitting people over the head saying you should be more progressive. Because then we've learned that some people dig their heels and more strongly to impose you especially in modern times where conflict has fomented on social media. But you just get people to think a little differently about things in the face of evidence. I've found that can have potency of its own and as an educator and as a scientist this is what I've done an in the book. Essentially every reply to people have written to me is an attempt to layer onto them some degree of measured rational thinking still some emotion there. You can't just be cold about it. But you want to empower people to be able to sink in new ways so that they can say. I now know how to analyze this information in ways I did not previously. Thank you for this bit of scientific insight. That allows me to do that. And that's what this book is about

Cool, it was this on the we know six questions, it was nothing. Good on the way. Area. We gave out a couple of tens on the. Well, not under your supervision, skyward sword might have been. Yeah, no, it wasn't Jan before my Dan, you were here, but not today is in the office in the building, you prevent it. Still it happen. All four of us were here. Why I try to stop it. Actively in about stopping. Okay. So it's not skyward sword. We know that. Was this game developed in America, the United States? He's going to Puerto Rico. What's going on in the United States? Man. I don't it might be. You'd be soft game. I don't know. I don't know. I can't answer. Okay. Okay. I don't know if it was developed in United States. Not. Okay. That's just an international publisher with. Yeah, with or US publisher. Does this game realistic graphics? If that's in a yes or no world. Yes. Just means not not a cell shake artsy year. Whatever. Does it a multiplayer? No. Single peas. Only one p is this game. Take place on earth. That's funny. Because this has been attention before. Yes. Wait, wait, wait. What was the discussion? Well, I asked it was the answer ended up being a Batman game. And I asked if it takes place in the United States and David said, no. That was two and a half years ago. And still about it to this day, is this game based on a license? Yes. All right. So I already forgot what you said about the United States, you said, no. I said it takes place in the United, okay? No, no. You said. I don't know. Say that you said it takes on earth earth. Does it take place on earth? That was the question. Yeah. Okay. Okay. It's licensed. This should be really good. We can we can get there. So it's not it doesn't take place on Middle Earth. No. Is it based off of? I would this be considered like a comic book superhero game. Yes. Okay.

Arguments, like we'll go to real city. Not in my you know, I don't want to give back. Only on a map where we're off. At the time I was it's not literally the United States. It's a fictional version of the United States, but I today I would be much more lenient with my answer. Yes, Batman, Arkham asylum. She play I did. It's great.

"For example, if you wanted to start a program like word, you would have to type run are you in MS word MSW RD games were played in a similar way. You would start the game. And the game would describe your surroundings. For example. This is an open field west of White House with a boarded front door. There's a small mailbox here a rubber mat saying welcome to orch- lies by the door. If you wanted to walk in a certain direction, you would type then walk south if you wanted to perform an action, you would type for example open door, and that's how the entire game was played. You would simply type these. Commands in if it was something that was there, for example, if the door was able to open, and you typed open door, it would say door is now open, and then you would say walk west, and you walk into the kitchen or whatever type of scenario you would walk into. On the podcast twit, which is this week in tech. They were talking about the Amazon echo one of the things. They mentioned was converting these old text based adventures or interactive fiction as they're sometimes called and have them run on your Amazon echo. How easy would it be to convert a wonder I did a little research, and there is an unofficial fan version of Zork which that description I just read comes from which is an early eighties text based adventure. I would have to agree with the host on twit that these games would be fairly easy to convert and take this old medium that we had in the seventies and eighties and daft it to a new technology now instead of typing walk east, you would simply speak walk east. I hope people convert some of these old text based adventures, and maybe make something make some of their own which the have done a few one of them is called Wayne enterprises in an a past episode. I talked a little bit. About it. So check out the archives to hear more about it. Wayne investigations include sound effects voice actors for each part. And you try to solve the mystery. I plan to explore some of these these and other things that you can do with an echo, and I'll share some of them with you. I just think it's a cool thing to take these old technologies and convert them into new ways that new generations and new people can experience them in a different way. No major reviews. This episode holiday slowed. My reading down a lot in. I'm just now getting back into the normal pattern of reading I'm finishing up. Saga of the swamp thing and a few others. Also, I am rereading the Lord of the rings Lee Bach. My gave me a couple of Tolkien books not written by Tolkien himself. But a commentary on various topics in the Lord of the rings books. This sparked my interest again. And now I decided to go ahead and read the books I read the seal Meridian about this time last year. So I haven't been out of Middle Earth for very long. I may talk. About it.

Dwarves hobbits, wizards good and evil talking. I spent years creating this place called Middle Earth, complete with its own languages, and mythology and maps one of the things that you'll see in as we have a number of his maps, that's Richard oven.

But at age three he was on a trip in England when his father died, and it was in England that he grew up and he. He ended up almost as an orphan being raised by family members immersed to share and the kind of rolling landscape is something which if you know that county you really recognizing tokens on what the Lord of the rings was also rooted in Tolkien's, deep interest in languages and in his study of early Anglo Saxon tales like beowulf stories that would have been sung rather than simply recited. So the Lord of the rings is full of songs, including some in languages like Elvis that Tolkien invented. That's the Maria is setting of one of Tolkien's Elvis texts by Donald Swann who.
