"Have you looked at these before? I immediately looked them up when I read it because he describes how weird they look. And I was like, I gotta see this. And I opened it up, and I think he had overplayed how weird they look because then I was like, oh, well, they just look like someone was bad at making statues. You know what I mean? It didn't look, I don't know. It was just like, oh, well, hands are hard, you know? Like, it's okay. Okay, my first thought was, were these measurements self reported? Because these men were reporting some above average, in my opinion, penis lengths. This is if this is the statistical average, how long were the people who were above average? Like, that's insane. Also, I don't know more than maybe like two women who ever have that perky of boobs without any support going on. Like, I'm sorry. Oh, yeah, that's probably a measurement of what the average American reports rather than what it actually is. Like, do you think these men were like stripping down in front of us the sexologist while he measured the length? No. I don't think so. Maybe, I don't know. I don't have, I can't speak to the research methods of this project. It's a weird ass project to be. Yeah. Like, why? So the follow-up to this or kind of adding on to this story is that later there was a Cleveland newspaper that had a competition to find the closest living example of Norma. So it was like 3800 women who submitted again self reported measurements to this newspaper and the winner who's highlighted as this very average woman. It doesn't actually look that much like the statue. Like if she's the closest there is, and it's very evident that she's not quite there. In the picture they have an image of her stay next to the statue.

"It's Carolina hosting the Minnesota Vikings. Two 0 and 3s. Two 0 and 3s. Yeah. I think this is in the leftover zone. I got Vikings minus one and a half. That went a little higher. I said two and it's three. Okay. They don't trust. Is Bryce Young supposed to sit another game or be back? It feels like this is a sitting slash, let's give Bryce a couple weeks, because he definitely had deer in the headlights in that Monday night game, I thought. So this is like, oh, your ankle's hurt. I'm sure it's hurt, but I bet he could play, but I think they're being super careful. I don't think they want him to lose his confidence in two weeks. All right, new category. I can't remember us ever having to do this before. It's worse than the Poopfecta. It's the nuclear reactor spill, Broncos at Chicago. There's alarms going off. There's people wearing hazmat suits. There's a cleanup crew. People are evacuating the town. This is the worst game of all time. We have the Broncos who have just lost by 50 against the Bears who have a fan base that I think is the maddest at their team. Oh yeah. I think any fan base has been in a while, like years. I'm trying to remember the last time a fan base has been this out on every aspect of their team, like all of it. They've had enough. What do they split in the stadium? And there's a million things to point to here. It's ridiculous. How are they, you know, they had two Monday games the last couple of weeks. Why not? Could there be two Thursday games? This feels like it should be a Thursday game too. I'd watch this if this was Thursday, an hour before Detroit Green Bay. If this was the Thursday night game, I think that would be it for Al. I think he doesn't need Brentwood. I think Al says, I'll call this for my house, but I'm not actually going to Chicago. I'll do it from here if you get a good wifi connection. Al was almost flatlining during the second half of that Giants game. I mean, Herb Street's just, it's just really tough partnership. I just feel bad. I love Al. I just want Al and Chris back together. What's the over-under? Not for life, but Al, come back to me, Al. Just the golf. I have the Broncos somehow favored in this game, even though they just lost by 50 points. You got to get it exact, because I got it exact. You got it exact. I have Broncos minus one and a half over the Bears. You didn't get it. Put it in the leftover zones. Three? Three. God, that's insane. How bad do you have to be to beat three point underdogs to a team that just lost 70 to 20? Well, I guess if you lose 41 to, yeah, no, it's worse. Sean Payton doesn't have his quarterback. That's the problem. We've had a loser leaves town. We ever had a coach leaves his job, turns in his playbook? I mean, if Ibra Flus loses this one, that has to be it, right? He gets Nate Hackett-ed. This is very early for a coach to be fired, but I could see it. Do you put that game on a TV, or do you pretend it doesn't happen? I just told you, I'd watch it if it was Thursday even. So that cracks? Yeah, I think so. I'm not watching. What's the over-under of that? Although Denver's defense is so bad. I'm not watching that game. You couldn't go under. 45 and a half, yeah. I don't want to watch one second in that game. Sunday night, Chiefs-Jets at the Jets, a game that looked incredible six weeks ago. This seemed like just an awesome game. Can't wait for this one, Chiefs-Jets. Let's do it, baby. Now, not as much. I have the Chiefs favored by seven and a half at the Jets. Crap, you get that. I said 10 and a half. Why isn't it 10 and a half? It's eight and a half, so you get it. Come on. How many points? Chiefs have a good defense. This is not a break for Zach Wilson. I have a Jets point that nobody else has. Because everyone's just like, Zach Wilson, he sucks. The Jets got to bring another thing. The Jets wide receivers, if you remove Garret Wilson, are fucking terrible across the board. Like, none of those guys are open in any game. None of them were open in this Pats game today. It's like the fucking old-timers team. It's Lazard and Reggie Cobb. It's just guys you've never heard of or guys who peaked seven years ago. And then Garret Wilson. Guys who Aaron Rodgers saddled you with, and then said, I got to sit here. But I know it's easy and fashionable to blame Zach Wilson, because he is terrible, and he does eight things that are noticeably awful and things you don't normally see during a football game, like when he just fell down today when he wasn't sacked and just kind of self-sacked. It was like an own goal. But all you have to do is double-team Garret Wilson. Who's he going to throw it to? No, I know. Tell me. It's like, oh, Lazard has single coverage. None of those guys can get open. I kind of feel that way about a lot of guys. Like, why isn't Devante Adams double and triple-teamed all the time? What would Jimmy G do, if that were the case? I don't know. I have a Jet take too, maybe not as popular. Zach Wilson leaves with Taylor Swift Sunday night. She goes for the younger man. I asked our fantasy football guys to investigate what happened to Hunter Renfro, because I was watching him in the game today. It was a complete afterthought. Two years ago, he had 103 catches. He had over 1,000 yards. He had nine TDs, and he looked like he was Wes Welker 3.0. Probably went for $23 in our draft. Now he's Braxton Barrios. What happened? What'd they say? I know he was not. They're gonna investigate. They're gonna investigate it. You might not come back with something for years. All right, you're up one, and I was off by a half a point here. Up one? I've been killing you this whole thing. What kind of scoring is that? Eight to seven. That's what it is. Come on. Monday night, Seahawks at the Giants. I'm gonna say Seahawks by two and a half. You lost that one, my friend. I said two, it's one and a half. I swear. God damn it. Got it all here. You're talking about the leftovers left and right, and you could've gone leftover and won this. 2-0 and two. Oh, let me have something today. This is the best you've ever done. Miserable week. I don't remember you doing this well through four weeks. Jesus. You know I will. You know it. All right, let's see parent corner. You wanted to have the floor? You had an emotional week. I did. I'll give you the bullet points because there's so much, and you've been through this before. I'll start with the saddest part, which was Archie saying goodbye to his brothers, his little brothers. And it really was sad. It was like a little hug in the living room, and I didn't know what to do. They wouldn't stop hugging, and the Uber is waiting. The Uber is a whole other story. But Uber's waiting, and I finally announced, they're sobbing, and I say, hey guys, there's gonna be things in our life to cry about, and this isn't one of them. Like your grandparents are gonna die. That's what you should cry about. And they look at me like, what's wrong with you, idiot? You don't even follow that with a joke? Your friend Harry's gonna break his hip. Oh, that would have been funny. But I had to get him to stop, and I didn't know what to do. So even Harrison was emotional? Yeah, he was very emotional. It was weird. He was an emotional kid anyway. But so that was, I didn't know at the time. I'm like, oh man, if that's that bad, when the wife and I say goodbye to him, it's gonna be worse. But anyway, so then the Uber driver pulls up, and he's a 65-year-old man listening to new wave music, and The Cure's Pictures of You is playing. And it's like, you're remembering you. And I'm on the front seat with the Uber driver, and I hear my wife sniffling in the back. I'm like, oh my God, the guy hasn't even made a U-turn out of our street, and this is bad. But anyway, we get there. The Target, the shopping at Target is ridiculous. We spent two and a half hours in there. And basically, a lot of it deciding between, do you want two and one shampoo, conditioner, or do you want separate? And it's like, we've been here two and a half hours. Just pick one. Do you remember your parents bringing you to Target and buying stuff forever? I don't remember being loaded up like that. I know, I don't remember any part of that. I just remember being happy. I had a towel and a bar of soap. It was pretty cool. Yeah, I think my parents gave me from home a clock radio and a 17-inch Zenith television. And I was probably forced to sell them after Bernie Kosar screwed me in a three-team teaser like week three. I guarantee you, those things didn't last. The other thing I'll say is we get there, there's people moving in, and it's like a combination of a fire drill and three Christmas mornings. You really should be able to take a class about how to get up the steps. Of course, he's on the fifth floor of a four, five-story building. But it's like Christmas morning where you have to assemble a bunch of crap and extension cords and stuff like that. And there's not too much to it, except that he was so sick of us by the end of the actual, of the end of us being there, that the actual goodbye was uneventful. And I miss him a lot. Like he couldn't wait to get rid of you. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And I think it was for the best. And then we go home and he goes to the Oregon game and we watch it on TV. We watch Oregon whip Colorado, and she's weeping every time they cut to the student section. And I'm like, all right, can I enjoy this? I'm finally gonna win a bet. I have Oregon minus 21. And that was it. So I don't know, I don't think you were wrong. I think in a way it wasn't as bad. The kid thing was very sad, him saying goodbye to his brothers. But I think that the key is, and this is grim, but there's no pure joy anymore. Like this should be a happy thing, right? Like once you have responsibilities, certainly watching the Cowboys is not pure joy. But that was my takeaway from this. Like should be thrilled for the kid, but it really is a bummer. Yeah, I think Zoe's been gone now six weeks. And it's, the sadness comes with like little memory things or like what I was telling you a couple weeks ago about like being in the store and be like, oh, I should get her some pickles. And I'm like, oh, she doesn't live with us anymore. Little moments like that. Or like tomorrow's my birthday. It's my first birthday that she's not going to be here since like 2004. You know, and you think like, oh, that's weird. She's been, I've had every birthday I've had for 18 years, she was there in some form and now she's not. So I don't know. Was Ben saying goodbye to her? Was that, or was he like- Well, I think he's a bad example, because, you know, he's, all right. He's, I don't know. He comes, he gets like belatedly sad. He's not like an in the moment sad guy. He's like a belatedly sad guy. So I feel like this is a recurrent theme of Parent Corner, but so my son had a football game Friday and was all excited because he's playing both ways. He was also going to return kicks. And he was like, I can't wait. There was plays in the offense. He's like, just pumped the whole week. So I showed up, I ended up getting there early. Usually I get there like a half hour before the game, but I thought there'd be traffic and there wasn't. So I sat down, it's like 50 minutes before the game. And I'm just kind of watching them warm up and they're throwing these long passes and they're all taking turns. And he's in the receiver group and he runs down and the pass is up and he kind of turns around, he jumps up and he kind of missed time to jump and he lands and just goes down. And he goes down, he rolls over, he's holding his leg. And I'm like, oh my God, I just watched my son tour his ACL. Like that's the, what the fuck? So I run down there, he's rolling around and then they're like, it's his foot, it's his foot. And when he was seventh grade, eighth grade, he, during the pandemic, he broke his foot and he broke his ankle, which we talked about on Parent Corner, two different, one playing football and one doing the stupid skateboard, which is when he lost the skateboard thing. So he's convinced he broke his foot because he heard a pop and he's really upset in the trainer's room. And it's like a half hour before the game and the trainer's doing all this stuff and he's moving around and we're sitting there and I'm like, I can't believe this fucking kid broke his foot. Like this is, like my daughter's been hurt the whole year. It's like, what's going on? Do I need to like, is the ghost in the house now messing with us? Guy does all the exercises. Like, I don't think he broke anything. I think he just sprained it, tapes him up, he ends up limping around through the whole game. Now he's got a sprained ankle. And then my daughter comes back Saturday and I'm watching that on the stream and she's finally relatively healthy from this hamstring pull. And then of course, five minutes left in the game, they're up by like six goals and collides with somebody and all of a sudden she's limping around. And then I don't know what happened for 20 minutes. And I just like, by the end of the two games, I'm just like, I feel like physically ill. Like, what's fun about this? So anyway, I thought, I think there should be a rule. I think parents should be able to give body parts and muscles to their kids. I wish there was a way, like Ben hurts his foot or he sprains his ankle and the doctor's just like, we're gonna need your right ankle. Like, great, here it is. And I could just take it off and give it to him or I could give my daughter a hamstring. I just wish parents could give their kids their body parts because I don't need them. What do I need an ankle for? Well, they can't, but you have to wait till you're dead, I think, right? Like organs and stuff. But you mean actually like a- Yeah, I just wish there was a way to spiritually transfer them along. So that's one thing. And then the other thing is- Wait, so how long is he out for? Nah, he's playing, he's just, you know, it's an ankle sprain. Stephen Auld, like that Norma Tech, all that bullshit.

AJ Discusses Some of His Top Movie Closing Lines
"That line got me thinking about some of the best lines that closed out movies. There's so many of them. But I just thought I'd have some fun and throw in some down. And I think we can all agree Humphrey Bogart saying, Lewis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. I think we can agree that's one of them for sure. One of my personal favorites is a very eerie, scary, sad one, Gloria Swanson, playing the ex silent film star Norma Desmond, and boy, it's such a great view of some old time Hollywood actresses and what they feel about their lives and careers and their beauty. One of the greatest films ever made, but she starts to walk close to the camera and she's talking to the great director Cecil B. DeMille who she apparently worked with when she was in her youth, but she wasn't working anymore. And she's walking toward the camera and she's saying, this is my life. It always will be. There's nothing else just us and the cameras and those wonderful people out there in the dark. All right, mister DeMille, I'm ready for my close up. And by the time she delivers that last line, she's in your face. You see that in a movie theater and that image doesn't leave for a long time. And then we take the 1995, the movie 7. Morgan Freeman, he's got some great lines and Morgan Freeman got some lines. And that movie was intense, and Morgan Freeman is basically summarizing the previous two hours of grief and grimness of David Fincher's movie when he says Ernest Hemingway once wrote the world is a fine place and worth fighting for. I agree with the second part. Oof. What magic with words? I mean, why even invoke the Ernest Hemingway part if all you really want to say is. You know, the world's worth of fighting for it. It's just a very strange way to go about something, but I find it fascinating. And of course, you can't count out it's cheesy, you know, but how can you count out Hannibal lecter?

It's a fascinating thing to consider, though the lives of people who are around because abortions either failed or the mother couldn't get one or it was still illegal before Roe versus Wade, and the reason I believe it's a relative. A relevant topic is the thing that liberals want to do is never considered the fact that there is another human being involved here. If an abortion occurs, it means someone Even if you don't want to make the case that someone is killed. You certainly can't deny that someone who would have lived doesn't live. I mean, there's no way that even a lefty can work themselves into that, If whether you call it an unviable fetus, tissue mass or a human being. If the abortion occurs, Whoever that baby would have been isn't out here among us, So these people are So when you consider people who in the case of botched abortions either survived an abortion attempt. Or in the case of Norma McCorvey is daughter. Someone who was born because her mother struck out in her attempt to get an abortion. It proves that this debate is actually over, not simply the rights of the mother. But the rights of the human being for whom we're making a decision as to whether or not they live or die. Some of them are alive and for the first time We now know who Rose, baby. Is She's alive, and she's a real person. All I can imagine is the people who support Roe versus Wade must regret that she's not dead. Because if Roe versus Wade ruled on earlier She wouldn't be alive.

"It and you're sprayer and that kind of thing you're supposed to do it when the leaves her off in the fall which i did last year and then you do it again in spring and i got to it a little bit late so that could be a problem but i mean the grapes that were developing this summer crater q. Probably a month ago or wonderful. I mean there was no spots on them and bang about. That's disappointing. I really i get you so the most common is the copper the copper one but there must be something else that we use can use. Yeah the other. One of course is the sulphur. That's a good one. What you call the board of spray. Yeah but those are more for powdery. Mildew So i guess what you really want to do is to go ahead and are you spraying every seven days and that's what you need to start doing. That sprang every seven days. I think that's the the recommendation for. I know it's for the bona fide Copper fungus they say if you have an infestation one spray maybe they might be nice freedom last night Hey we're still pretty good. But i was afraid that 'cause like right. Afterwards i noticed that a lot of them have started spotting up again. I said maybe they're sensitive to this copper straight a no you should do. You should definitely do you have an infestation and you're gonna have to stay with it and may affect the fruit. It may affect some. But i would say for the most part. The fruit is pretty. Well lost at this point anyway. So what you're trying to do is get ahead and don't forget to spray the ground around underneath there as well so make sure the spend the the staff all the way up in the bottom of the leaves and everything have to be pretty Pretty thorough on it to really do a good job. Most of the time The other thing you can do is to take like Well a compost tea or for that matter just even A motor wanna say. Is the compost tea or even The seaweed or the fish emotion and spray that You know inbetween springs with that and what that what that does is it. Changes the ph the same way that we you know. We try to resist a powdery. Mildew is to change apa and in that case it would also feed the plant as well so maybe just a spray the fungus side one and then go ahead and feed them with a full easier for spray with a fish emulsion. okay teammate. Oh if you have a compost pile you know you can. You can make a compost pa. Make a sat of a couple shovels in five gallon bucket. Or you could just use regular old manure to You know and that both feeds. It's a full ear feed but the point of it is to change the ph on your leave so that the bacteria fungus are less likely to that around Basically the plan where you can do that. But i'm talking about a foley spray because we've come it to that's right that's right The other thing you can do is put the the manure in In a in a bag you know a porous bag and then poured off the top and that would keep it from being too but no matter what you're going to have to spray scr stranded a little bit. Yup yup okay. I won't insure that the people call it well. I'm curious how this works out for you. It makes you call back with you. Thanks norma christian leap next year okay. Diligent stay right on top of it and is this is the fortress..

That reminds wait, Wait, wait, but that reminds me of Okay? I don't know if I can do this. It reminds me of what made Don I'm is famous. Can I do this? Alright, I'll think about it while you're thinking about it. Let's bring in George Vladimir George. Vladimir's in here, but okay, Yeah, sorry. George Vladimir is the Westchester County executive. Uh, well, he's basically my second favorite executive. Because I live in Nassau County and Laura current actually texted me yesterday. I wish me a happy birthday. What did I hear from Vladimir Crickets anyway? Hey, George, what's doing in Westchester? Yeah. You want to come back on the program soon. George, Her is the answer. Then hers it Yeah. Oh, he was playing tag team trivia still holds a grudge. Alright, George, Uh, Glenn and I want to rematch with Laura on elevator music from help. Yeah, well, Oh, come on. Can we do that? Natalie, we've got to do But let's come over some hard ones. No, we'll do that. We'll do that. Okay. Hey, George On a serious note or at 69.9%, the governor says when we get to 70, I mean, were there Come on, open, open everything up and let's be done with it. Well, we're there already in Westchester word 74.8. And I think Laura's even ahead of me with the 12 counties in the state for the big cash, or she is one and we're number two. So, but 74.8 you know, we've done everything we can within our power to open it up. Obviously, the power you know, the ultimate power in the state belongs to the governor. But but we're ready and I think that people are ready and we're doing everything we can to get back to normal. George, Let me ask you something, And I want you to be candid with me on this one. We know that Cuomo is just been encircled by scandals. Covid was the best thing that ever happened to him, and now he is in the pit, and he's trying to claw back out of that. And he's now saying even if we hit 70%, we may not be there yet. This man is clinging to the one thing that brought him to the top. And that is Covid. Do you see this guy still trying to keep people shut down just so that he can keep his job so that people will still think he's in charge of Covid. And if he does that, will people in West Treasures say We're not listening to him anymore? Life is going on. Yeah, I think you know. First of all, it's a big state, and there's different elements of the state. We sit right next to the Bronx and what's happening in Westchester. That's very good isn't quite at the same level in the Bronx. So, but I do think Look, I do think that opening up the society as long as you can justify it is the best possible politics because wherever I go, Mike around my county people, you know they're concerned about the virus, and they do want people who are unvaccinated. Wear masks, but they want if they are vaccinated, and that 75% of our county adults, they want to open up things. They want to be able to have summer concerts in the park. And I think that is the best politics If you want to be popular, and also do the right thing, And I think you want to open up to society more rather than shut it down. Shutting it down doesn't get you That doesn't get you anywhere. Vaccinations get you somewhere. Norma George Lattimore, the Westchester County executive. Well, the phrase we keep hearing is well when we hit 70%. We're going to open things up for the most part. So what part is not getting opened up at 70? Well, the concerns I would have from a suburban standpoint, if you get on a B line bus and your cheek to jowl with a bunch of people that you don't know that's probably where the mask needs to be on. Certainly if you walk into a hospital or a nursing home where you know there are germs and other sick people a mask should be on. But I have to tell you, you know, in every day walking around White Plains, Yonkers Mount Vernon, which is where we have our concentrated populations. Um people are not wearing masks, and I don't treat it as a problem Now, because of the vaccination rate, the spread is minimal. We we tested yesterday three some odd 1000. 12. People tested positive out of 3000. If those numbers started to go up, then we take a different actions. But right now I think the numbers and the circumstances allow for it. And people do want it. The springtime It's almost the summertime now. And they want to have normalcy and I think we want to deliver an officer. All right. So as normalcy mean that caramel is going to be open and that right Playland is going to be open. Yes, both will be. We're opening Playland, the 25th. Friday, a week from Friday. I guess it is and we're ready to go with Playland this year was closed last year Michael Open this year. Paramore has a big opening night coming up. In fact, there's a new director of caramel. It's time to give you a call. Because I know you love the place and this new guy should talk to you and talk to him. But, yes, I think those kind of things are happening When I said before about some of the park, all our little towns and villages all have their own little series of concerts and, you know, tribute bands and you know the local the local guys who played music and the vast majority that we're going to be up this summer, and it's going to be a lot better summer that we had last year. All right, George Vladimir Westchester County Executive, come back and challenge Laura current of Nassau County to elevator music from hell Looking forward to it. Thanks, George. Take care, guys. Alright, Good. Talkative congratulations on lawyers. Exiles. Looks like things are looking up in Westchester County.

That's a huge deal to her. Into richard but especially to emily And both she norma desmond definitely try to buy people's affections Obviously emily is not quite as terrible as normal. Do not get me wrong. She is not on the same level. She is not evil eye. She has some twisted aspects to her relationships with her family. That's also true of every single person. Ever it feels like a normal person level of family dysfunction in a lotta ways. Yeah but they both definitely try and buy things to win your affection to win your presence to keep you around.

The Shocking Day I Flashed a Crowd of Churchgoers
"Our story. This week is from sarah. Paris who you'll find on medium dot com and here is the shocking day. I flashed a crowd of churchgoers. And this isn't even my most embarassing moment. How did i find myself soaking wet and naked from the waist down in front of a church crowd. Did i traumatized scores of little kids. In grandma's it's a long story and yes most likely here's my tale of woe. Thunder roared through a heavy sky. I sped down winding country lanes panicked. We wouldn't arrive on time. My friend grace and i were running late to church and she barked our countdown time from the passenger seat. Five minutes dude. We're still a few miles away. She screamed god. Still hasn't given me the stop time. Talent i'm going as fast as i can. It was the july after college graduation. My college roommates and i had decided to share one less carefree summer together. We played all summer each of us working part time and in vain clinging to the last vestiges of young adulthood. They were all three weeks away from heading out for various graduate schools. I was leaving to spend a year in. Amsterdam are worry free. Summer was spent embarking on adventures playing at the beach and sleeping in until noon. We talked about church but so far had bailed every week grace and i were the only ones going. We're both lazy on sunday morning. But we'd commit it. The church was thirteen miles away from our summer house and the last service began at eleven. Am we didn't walk out the door until ten forty five am. The sky wept as i pulled into the crowded parking lot at ten fifty nine. We laughed about our mature adult like behavior and found a parking spot. In another state. I realized distance from parking space to church was easily a thousand miles. The rain was blinding. And we didn't have an umbrella between us. Let's just blow it off this week. I suggested but i knew we couldn't. We dressed up for god after all we gathered our things made makeshift head coverings out of our jackets and sprinted from the car in one hand. I clutched both my jacket. And my giant norma's keychain my bible and purse were death gripped in the other hand. Grace only carried her jacket. At least seventeen feet of rain had fallen in the time. It took me to park. Grace i mustered our courage and ran at the same time. We were about ten feet away from the swarm. Faithful and responsible umbrella owning congregants who are reaching the churches front door. We swam to join the crowd. My soaked clothes weighing an extra hundred pounds and stuck to my buddy beamed with my love for god as i faced a possible drowning. Death for him are tears of laughter mixed with the rain and i could barely see. Suddenly i noticed that my wrap around skirt felt a bit loose and then gray shrieked with a new menacing laughter. She was pointing at me and covering her mouth. A cool breeze roared my backside before i realized what had happened. My hipster rap around pencil skirt was down around my ankles. My bright pink bikini. Briefs were on display for all of god's people and we were still thirty people back from entering the church. Foyer i exclaimed oh my grace help me. Grace replied is only close. Friends can way she said. Between bursts of giggles she turned to the family behind. Me over. ear is no one should have to see this. I had nowhere to put my belongings and struggled to pull up my skirt. please help grace. I pleaded. I need to savor this moment. I wondered if she was possessed by now. Most of the people surrounding us striptease a nervous. Dad laughed a grandmother. Told me i should feel ashamed of myself. And a mother with her two young sons. Put her hands over. There is finally graced. Took my stuff allowed me to pull up my sopping dirty skirt sitting through the service friend. She smiled. I narrowed my eyes and shot lasers at her. We walked into the back of the crowded service and those in the rows ahead of us turned and stared. I heard two women behind us. Whisper to each other. What is wrong with that girl. I prayed for a dark cave to crawl into. The god doesn't always answer prayers. In the ways we desire the judgment of stranger sent ways of heat through my otherwise shivering body. You can stay. Told grace. But i'm going. We snuck out and trudged back to the car. I can't wait to tell everyone. My compassionate friend said when my mortification wore off. I only regretted that i hadn't shouted. You're welcome on my way out of the service. A few years later grace introduced me to her fiancee's hunter sarah the skirt list wonder. I've heard all about you. He laughed and clapped. My back. neat responded to this day. I still have a hard time making eye contact with hunter again. My church strip-tease barely cracks my top five embarrassing moments so whenever you dur public humiliation i hope you'll recall my pink bikini briefs and i hope you'll realize that you're not alone.

Douglas Stuart Reads Kevin Barry
"Hi douglas debra. How are you. I'm alright welcome when we talked about doing this. You had originally been inclined to choose a scottish story to read on the podcast but in the end you settled on an irish one. Do you think that the two traditions are interlocked. The certainly have a very close relationship. But even in reading the kevin body still here realized how much of the pronunciation and the expressions weren't familiar to my ear and so although the close they are quite different in terms of This story it feels a little like a fairy tale in a sense. I mean it has that sort of fable like quality to it. And i feel so it may work in a tradition of irish fables. To what you think you think it's certainly in that tradition of irish oto storytelling. It starts off with You know the narrator. Saying so. I bought an old hotel in the fjord of killary and just the way he brings you into the story. You have a sense that not only as a fable but it's the type of story we would pass around in pubs and from most both and that i think is the irish tradition and certainly the scottish tradition. Because sometimes when we don't find ourselves in literature it doesn't mean we're not natural-born storytellers and those oral stories. Don't always get written down. That is absolutely true here. And i think that's part of the charm of this is just the mixture of these canisters. When you see it almost feels quite other-worldly at times. And i chose the story because first of all it's just totally entertaining but also because it made me nostalgic for a time when we could gather and and be together without thinking about the consequences about the weight that comes with with those gatherings. Yeah yeah having scenes in a in a pub with everyone talking it feels like another world. That's true did you read the story when it first came out in two thousand ten. I didn't actually. I was led to kevin body short stories. Because norma s- fan of his novel night bhutan. Jere and i was thinking about what i wanted to read. I love kevin. Barry and i was actually surprised to see. He has published many stories in the new yorker. Yeah the first one. I believe and Do you think that this one sort of fits in with his general themes it. Does i find him always writing about masculinity especially men on the margins. But what's interesting about this is. There's an absence of hard man or criminals or Petty gangsters that he often populate has novels these other short stories. These are just people who are gathering together in a pub And there's a poet at the heart of it. We'll talk some more after the story. And now here's douglas stuart reading fjord of killary by kevin berry fjord killary so i bought an old hotel on the fjord of killary. It was set hard by the harbour wall with moody amount across the water and disgracefully gray skies above. It rained two hundred. Eighty seven days of the year and the locals were given to magnificent mood swings on the night in question. The rain was particularly violent. It came down. Like handfuls of neal's flung hard and fast by a cd asli royal sky. God i was at this point eight months in the place and about convinced that it would be the death of me. It's end to the fucking world stuff out there. I said the quotas of locals and the hotels lounge bar as always ignored me. I was a fruitful blue in by their mark and simply not cut out for tough gnarly west of ireland. Living there were listening instead to jon murphy or alcoholic funeral director. Albury anything that fucking moves. He said bastards suicides tinkers. He said i couldn't give a fuck monkeys he said. Maria is the most depressing mountain you've ever seen by the way and it's gone looming shape filled almost every view from the water's edge hotel. The loans bars included the locals drank. Mostly bushmills whiskey and guinness stout and they drank them to great excess. I wiped they're slobs from the counter. With the bar cloth i had come to hate with a passion verging on the insane.
New York Repeals 'Walking While Trans' Law
"It's 2021. There's no reason that people should still be profiled and police based on how they look or dress this week, New York State repealed all love. It's commonly been called the walking while Trans Bam! And it is a decades old law that has allowed police to stop people in the street for loitering if they were suspected of prostitution, and many advocates and legislators say enforcement of that law has disproportionately affected women and especially transgender women of color. Women have been arrested simply for walking home for standing alone. Talking with friends. W my sees Emily Lang unpacked the news of the repeal and what it means for many transgender women in today's episode of Consider this a news podcast from NPR and W N. Y C. Is that conversation with Rebecca Ibarra? Emily activists have fought for years to repeal this 1976 anti loitering law. So what was their immediate reaction? Activists are definitely relieved. For many. It's hard for them to say that they're elated or happy because they're still so many different ways that black and brown trans women can be harassed under the law or by police. And I mean this is the third time since 2017 that a repeal proposal has had Momenta Min, the state Legislature. So a lot of people are mainly thing. Finally. Um, but for someone like T s candy, who I spoke with men, she's essentially been one of the main faces of this repeal. Candy says, you know, after running up and down the halls of Albany trying to get people to listen now eating my words that she feels like she's now eating her words. We need to clarify Emily that this repeal does not mean people will stop being arrested for engaging in prostitution that's still illegal, right prostitution is still illegal. However, the fact of the matter is that 19% of all trans people and 47% of black trans women have engaged in sex work. And that's according to the U. S Transgender survey, just due to discrimination that trans folks across the board face Sex work is a way to earn an income were as an alternative to relying on homeless shelters and food banks. So while lot of lawmakers who voted for the bill do not support decriminalizing sex work The majority of trans rights activists see this repeal as leading them towards decriminalization. So what, if anything happens to people who have been previously arrested under the law? So this bill Included the ceiling of prior convictions and why that's important is because someone charged with this violation has a criminal record that isn't sealed, and so it can impact their access to housing employment on been many cases, their immigration or asylum seeking process so Norma Oh, Torrio is with make the road New York, and she's a trans right activists and immigrant before the vote. She was speaking at a rally about how being arrested under this statute impacted her ability to apply for residency in the U. S. The visa was arrested in Pacifica. Those can tango, no empathy doctor never off the narrow, which, after two years she still hasn't been able to gain So ceiling could help many people with their immigration status. Leslie what is New York's track record so far protecting the trans community and in that context How big of a change is this? Actually, So In recent years, groups have managed to secure support from Governor Cuomo and passing the Gender expression Nondiscrimination act also known as agenda, which tremendous the human rights law to prohibit discrimination based on gender, identity or expression. They've gotten him to ban conversion therapy on minors. But when the walking while Trans Coalition speaks to a new era, the majority of folks are referring to their fight to de criminalize sex work, which in Albany, there may not be the same support that there was around this repeal, so to be interesting to see how lawmakers respond. That's W and my seat producer Emily Lang talking to Rebecca Ibarra.

What do we know about Joe Bidens cabinet?
"Us president donald trump was never going to react to losing the two thousand and twenty election gracefully us. President donald trump has never reacted to anything gracefully as we go to air trump continues to insist that he's crack. Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil. Baron wants personally awarded. Russia's order a friendship medal by president vladimir putin president-elect to biden could scarcely have made a moral docs pick as america's top diplomat. And that's where the men and women of the state department foreign service officers civil service. That's where they come in. I've witnessed their passion their energy their courage up close. Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back. Diplomacy is back.

What you need to know about open enrollment
"I want to give you an update on open enrollment, which is beginning any day now for many private employers, most of us. Who have the good fortune of having health coverage suing employer are go through these open enrollment periods where? You can change your coverage potentially your deductibles. What your premiums are going to be possibly have access to an HSA plan and I wanted to tell you one thing. A lot of people were worried about earlier. This year is not going to happen, and that is there are not going to be big increases in premiums for employer provided coverage that you would do during employer-provided open enrollment or if you're buying an individual plan and most of the country, you're not going to see any large increases if you're buying a plan at healthcare dot Gov or your state equivalent website for an individual plant, the reason is the cost of providing care for Corona virus have not. Changed the math four insurers for particular crazy reason. You know how earlier this year I was telling you about people who were not going to their doctor visits and people were even having heart attacks and they were refusing to go to the emergency room. Well a lot of. Normal. medical that people would get people weren't doing and insurers actually have seen a significant benefit. From lower utilization of medical services, and that's why there's not going to be big increases and premiums except in odd situations but unlikely and employers really don't WanNa rock the boat much with their employees. For Twenty one in the open enrollments coming up. But if you are someone who has changed employers this year lost your job got another one. The new job doesn't have health coverage. You then become eligible. To buy coverage for yourself, and if you have family members, family members as well at the healthcare dot Gov site, and if your state has its own, they will refer you straight to it. And that starts next Sunday. For the open enrollment period that is six weeks long for buying an individual health plan. And on their, you'll have a choice of color coded plans. That are bronze silver, gold or, platinum. And the colors is you go up. The colors the premiums are higher the coverage more robust but I want you to know that if you don't qualify for subsidies. On the exchanges, the premiums you pay are frightening I mean they are very very large. The reason is the average cost of insurance for family. In the United States now from an employer. And it may not be what you're paying, but it's the overall cost of what you pay. The employer pays is now over twenty one, thousand dollars a year. So you by an individual policy, it reflects similarly and so the premiums are John Norma's. On the Individual Exchange though most people buy their qualify. Financially for some level of subsidy. That reduces the premiums a great deal, but even when you get past the premiums You got the deductibles that are pretty significant. If you. Wish you can buy what I a junk health insurance policy, which is one where you can buy it for a period of. A year up to renewing two more times for a total of three years that does typically does not cover pre existing. Does not cover serious illnesses typically like cancer heart disease, diabetes. But provides a base level of coverage with tight limits on total coverage. With very cheap premiums people argue about whether it's better than nothing or worse than nothing. But if the premiums at healthcare dot cover the state equivalent or out of sight, but you don't WanNa be completely uncovered. You can look at that. The other alternative is what's so is a faith based health insurance policy is not really insurance policy faith-based medical reimbursement plan. That are offered by many religious organizations are religiously affiliated organizations where people of like minded faith pool their money together. And Pay. Some not all of the medical expenses of people in the pool. The risk is if you got a couple of people with this very serious illness, the pool can run out of money, but the premiums are much much cheaper.
Dept. of Justice Accuses Google of Illegally Protecting Monopoly
"We we turn turn today today to to title title fifteen fifteen of of the the United United States States code code section section two, two, which which reads reads in in relevant relevant part part every every person person who who shall shall monopolize or attempt to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several states shall be deemed of a felony and unconvicted thereof shall be punished by fine not exceeding one hundred, million dollars if a corporation. So, if you don't know now, you know the corporation and question of course, is Google which found itself on the receiving end of an antitrust lawsuit today filed by the Department of Justice and eleven state of general. So as we do when technology leads the news we've gotten molly would the host marketplace tech on the phone to make a smart? Hey, molly. AK So So many questions number one is who's been around for a long time. It's been John Norma's for longtime dominant for a very long time what took so long for this to happen. Yeah, well, it's really interesting because, and in fact, the Department of Justice notes this in their filing. There is legally a difference between being really really really big and really dominant as you know and between maintaining that dominance in a way that crosses over into illegality, and so it takes a while to make that case basically that maintaining the dominance is the illegal part whereas it's fine to just be gigantic route What's The counterargument? What's Guna say? We're we're just doing our businessmen nobody here, but US chickens. I mean, yes Google counter argument is that this is a flawed lawsuit and that there are plenty of options out there for search their official blog post rebutting the filing of this lawsuit included a lot of gifts in which people use being Microsoft's having. So if you know anybody who does definitely, let me know I want to talk to them. And then they counterargument to kind of the lawsuit itself which a lot of pundits said. N Even. Legal Scholars people who worked on for example, Microsoft case in the nineties said you know this? This case could have been bigger. There were suggestions that it was being rushed even over the objection of some career lawyers and state attorneys general in order to get out before the election. And the scope of it is very limited to search the counter to all of that. Of course, as you gotta start somewhere and these cases are a big deal right an and searches is kind of the low hanging fruit. Let me just back up a minute to that to that bing thing you are, and we've talked about this on making me smarter our podcast, your devoted user of Duct Dot Gov for its privacy implications. Of course, it's more protective than usual, but also the point being. How many really good options are there if you want comprehensive search, it's got to be Google right because they've got all the data and everything. Well, there are a couple arguments around that. One is that people perceive ruled have better search results because it's filter bubble because who knows a lot about you? So it will say Oh if you the example, actually that lawyer I talked to today gave was that maybe there's a plumber in your area and a lot of people have used that plumber before and so they'll search they'll service give you that search option I. But in fact, you might not want that you might want somebody who's better vetted or something along those lines. The Art. The core of the argument that the Department of Justice is making here is that Google has paid a ton and a ton of money to device makers, including apple and using its own android platform to make sure that Google is the default so that every time I, for example, want to use duck duck. Oh, in a browser or on my apple device I have to. Find the setting that lets me change that default and most people don't write and let the whole thing was what got Microsoft in trouble right with back low these many years ago. The last time we had an antitrust thing was they were put s right, right? Yeah. This lawsuit impact is very, very similar to the Microsoft case someone on twitter referred to it as almost a cut paste. Well you know they can. They can do that at the Justice Department. We got a half a minute tops what now happens inside Google. They fight this thing because I imagine even though they can afford a lot of lawyers it's going to suck the life out of them. It's a big deal. It's a really big deal even if you quibble about the scope and whether they should have included advertising and data, the fact is that these cases have major impacts at it set Microsoft. Back a decade of innovation. It's at IBM back a decade back in starting nineteen, sixty, nine at and T.. So Google spends a lot of money a lot of time and is very, very distracted trying to fight this thing. Molly would the host of marketplace tech thanks. Thanks.

Sentiment Preserving Fake Reviews
"My Name Is David Delaney repeal today at Zaylon inversely I walk with a spoken language system who will do research on natural language understanding like some speech recognition on mostly natural language processing very cool. Definitely some exciting areas. Do you have a particular focus within that field or a special problem? You're tackling. I'm walking mostly on privacy. Preserving looks stems, but I'm working on the test. Side this guy when you're ready, do speech recognition on you? Try to remove over private information. Ice remained in his. His speech transcript, so we have focusing on out the way neutralize. Every private sensitive was in speed transcripts I see a lot of challenges in that. If you don't mind before we get to the main paper loved unpack it a little bit more. It would be natural that you could recognize someone saying okay. My pin number is one two three four, and you know to blank that out, but I imagine there's some trickier problems to. Could you give an example of a really tough situation that's. For Algorithms phase ample warn really difficult task is style the rightist time on speaking style, so dare ways you could kind of hot noise to dispatch cigna in such a way that you're not able to independent voice, or was it get to speak transcript? Everything isn't next I. You can analyze the style of the writing or the person against. The Pistons. Information and this doesn't relate to what you can automatically detect like credit card, number or four norma. Do some patent much into. So these are more difficult task. Will the main paper I asked you on to discuss is generating sentiment preserving fake online reviews using natural language models, and they're human and machine based detection so a Lotta great stuff that is right in line with what we talk about data skeptic. Maybe we can begin at a high level, fake reviews or nothing new. What's becoming more interesting? What's changing right now? It's very problem probably is one of the reasons why Amazon hard like. By and you're not from a big defense we have now is. We have very good motives that gone generate through ain't synthetic text, as it's very difficult to distinguish from humans and technology, ordinarily talk models gets bit day by day at by professor used to say like what is the new this month? So this guy like almost heaven wants you have. That's along with coming out. As assistant improves also the difficulty in disagree real awesome, the difficulties I Siam. We'll given the state of the art when you as a human being read certain reviews, does it pass the imitation game? Can you tell those that are fake in those that are real? I think this is really difficult. Phase observe in our paper is always by run on chassis, so must just get lucky spearmint where we give us as far views allows them to identify one review from four options. I think he accuracy was Sarah five percent, which means that. That is just like a game of chance I guess what. What's the point of these fake reviewers? Why are the producers of such things producing them the reason start? She could use it to in France. It was decisions. Example from by officials of customers can visit to increased profit on visit to pack your competitors, so they'd have less customers, so I think also about from Dave reviews this time. It also used the same technology of politics by on twitter. Just four. Please benefit to where you just try to drive attention of people to. Tear your organization and maybe someone who's very cynical might say oh. Who Cares about the fake reviews? Let's just assume reviews fake, and I have to take everything with a really really big grain of salt. Why do we need a systematic algorithm approach to help I think long be differences that people are not only in phrase, the content of the review, but they also influenced by the volume on much shove reviews. It's not put get so this kind of for affect decisions of able for example to buy decisions report one thousand reviews Amazon or you want to just let because you have ready to all you know when I, fake story, and this kind of affect was.

The problems were so frequent and involve so many different aircraft that the air force had an alarming life or death mystery on its hand. It was difficult to be flying. One retired airmen told me you never knew if you're going to end up in the dirt at its worst point. Seventeen pilots crashed in a single day. The government designations for these non-combat mishaps were incidents and accidents. And they ranged from unintended dives and bungled landings to aircraft obliterating fatalities at first the military brass pin the blame on the men in the cockpits citing pilot error as the most common reason in crash reports this judgment certainly seemed reasonable since the plans themselves seldom malfunctioned engineers confirmed this time and again testing the mechanics and electronics of the planes and finding no defects pilots to were baffled. The only thing they knew for sure was at their piloting skills. Were not the cause of the problem if it wasn't human or mechanical error. What was it? After multiple inquiries and with no answers officials turned their attention to the design of the cockpit. Itself BACK IN. Nineteen Twenty Six. When the army was designing its first ever cockpit. Engineers had measured the physical dimensions of hundreds of male pilots. The possibility of female pilots was never a serious consideration and used this data to standardize the dimensions of the cockpit for the next three decades the size and shape of the seat the distance to the pedals and stick the height of the windshield. Even the shape of the flight helmets were all built to conform to the average dimensions of a nineteen twenty six pilot. Now military engineers began to wonder if the pilots had gotten bigger since nineteen twenty six to obtain an updated assessment of pilot dimensions. The Air Force authorized the largest study of pilots that had ever been undertaken in nineteen fifty researchers at right Air Force Base in Ohio measured more than four thousand pilots on one hundred forty dimensions of size including thumb length crotch height and the distance from pilots I to his ear and then calculated the average for each of these dimensions. Everyone believe this improved calculation of the average pilot would lead to a better fitting cockpit and reduce the number of crashes or almost everyone one newly hired twenty-three-year-old scientists had doubts. Lieutenant Gilbert as Daniels was not the kind of person you would normally associate with testosterone drenched culture of aerial combat. He was slender glasses. He lacked flowers and landscaping and in high school was President of the Botanical Garden Club when he joined the Aero Medical Laboratory at Right Air Force Base straight out of College. He had never been in a plane before but it didn't matter as a junior researcher. His job was to measure pilots limbs with a tape measure. It was not the first time gang had measured the human body the aero medical laboratory hard daniels because he had majored in physical anthropology. A field that specialized in the anatomy of humans as an undergraduate at Harvard during the first half of the twentieth century. This field focused heavily on trying to classify the personalities of groups of people according to their average body shapes a practice known as typing for example. Many physical anthropologists believed a short and heavy body was indicative of Mary and fun. Loving personality while receding hairlines and fleshy lips reflected a quote criminal type. Daniels was not interested in typing however instead his undergraduate thesis consisted of a rather plotting comparison of the shape of two hundred fifty male. Harvard students hands the students. Daniels examined were from very similar. Ethnic and socio cultural backgrounds namely widen wealthy but unexpectedly. Their hands were not similar at all even more surprising when Daniels averaged all his data the average hand did not resemble any individuals measurements. There was no such thing as an average hand size quote when I left Harvard. It was clear to me that if you wanted to design something for an individual human being the average was completely useless. Daniels told me so in the Air Force. Put them to work measuring pilots. Daniels harbored a private conviction about averages that rejected almost a century of military design philosophy as he sat in the medical laboratory measuring hands. Legs Way. Sin Foreheads. He kept asking himself. The same question is head. How many pilots really were average? He decided to find out using the size. Data gathered from four thousand sixty three pilots. Daniels calculated the average of the ten physical dimensions believed to be most relevant for design including height chest circumference and sleeve length. These form the dimensions of the average pilot which daniels generously defined as someone who's measurements were within the middle thirty percent of the range of values for each dimension so for example even though the precise average high from the data was five foot nine he defined the height of the quote average pilot as ranging from five seven to five eleven next compared each individual pilot one by one to the average pilot before he crunched numbers that consensus among his fellow. Air Force researchers was at the vast majority of pilots would be within the average range on most dimensions after all. These pilots had already been pre-selected because they appeared to be average-sized. If you were say 6-foot-7 you've never been recruited in the first place. The scientists also expected that a sizable number of pilots would be within the average range on all ten dimensions but even Daniels was stunned when he tabulated the actual number zero out of four thousand sixty three pilots not a single airman fit within the average range on all ten dimensions. One pilot might have a longer than average arm length but shorter average leg length. Another pilot might have a big chest but small hips even more Donna. She dangles discovered that if you picked out just three of the ten dimensions of say Necks Conference Thi- circumference and risks or conference less than three and a half percent of pilots would be average-sized all three dimensions. Daniels findings were clear. And incontrovertible there was no such thing as an average pilot. If you've designed the cockpit to the average pilot you've actually designed it to fit no-one gangs revelation was the kind of big idea that could have ended one era of basic assumptions about individuality and launched a new one. But even the biggest of ideas require the correct interpretation. We like to believe that facts speak for themselves but they most surely do. Not after I'll Dang was not the first person to discover. There was no such thing as an average person. Okay I've stopped reading. That is from again. I mean give the book title. One more time from. Todd rose the end of average and I just wanted to call that I was thinking about averages and thinking about our propensity our desire to want to know what the average is for all kinds of spending line items and we want to know. What's the average spend on hobbies in general? What's the average spend on groceries? What's the average mortgage? What's the average? Pm I property taxes any number of things and I think the danger in that is that you start to think that you need to fit some kind of mythical average in your finances some mythical budget some perfect budget this average. And there's a whole other story in the book about Norma this it's about women's measurements in about how women weren't fitting this ideal and you know this opposed average. It's it's also very fascinating but the idea that you're supposed to hit some average. I think you should just throw it out. I think you should resist the tendency that we all have to kind of say. Well what's what's average? Where DO I fit? Don't worry about being average worry about asking yourself on a regular basis. What you want your money to do for you. And don't look around resist the urge to look around and figure out what kind of average you're supposed to be fitting into. I think people that can buck that that can fight against. It are some of the people that have breakthroughs whether it's in their personal finances or inventions or any number of other things so resist the urge to look for an average in conform. And make your budget your own. Make your categories your own own it. It's yours. Don't look to anyone else to let them say how they think you should do this or that. My guess is if we were to compare and try and find the average buzzer. My guess is we would have a similar result that there is no single person that fits this average of all of our different calculations so with that in mind just You know you're in the cockpit right. The Cock the budget is the cockpit. The cockpits where you where you drive the jet exactly where you need to go and what you need to do and in thinking about it that way this cockpit. This budget is tailored specifically to you. The success of this story to kind of tie it all up is that the military did embrace it and they resisted a lot of pushback from the engineering and manufacturing this. This is impossible. We can't make it but they were saying no fit the system to the individual. Don't try and fit the individual to the system and in doing that. They ushered in a whole me. They should in an era of improved flying. Safety Dominance in the air. It was unbelievable so resist the urge to try and find the average. You just tailor that cockpit that budget you and enjoy your
