"Sit back and enjoy the show, but if it's Monday night new try to call and yeah lines are all busy now, but they won't be. And that bumper stumper is absolutely easy. Yeah, it was a top ten R&B record at top 40 pop record in 1958 on class and I know you know who that is and maybe by now you've figured out the commonality of all the songs we're playing at night in the meantime. My question in the Soviet Union Joseph Stalin banned this as being bourgeois and degenerate and again this is something that is just nobody would ban this. Well, yeah, Joe Stalin, of course, banned a lot of things, including this. And I think it was his own shortcomings, but believe me, don't try that as a clue because it won't help much, I don't think. Maybe after the fact. But John is the first time caller and he's on the north side. What do you think, John? Yeah, so there's a legend that he banned around 1938. He banned the Parker brothers game monopoly. That's a great answer, and that was one of the many things he banned, but that isn't it. Okay, thank you. Thanks for calling. Do it again. All right, yeah, no, of course, the problem with monopoly, of course, is it was capitalism. And yeah, forget about degenerate. Yeah, just the big sea capitalistic. And that did that. All right, Mike and Mount Pleasant wants to take a guess on it. What do you think, Mike? Hi there. I guess this for you. First one, makeup. No, what's the second guess? Sandals. No, what's the third guess? Fragrances like perfume or aftershave. We'll talk to you later. Thanks for calling. Hey. Appreciate it. All right, all good guesses. They're just not right. That's the only thing with those wrong with those guesses. Otherwise, they're perfect. Suzanne and Chicago, welcome back to WGN radio. Hi, role. You won't believe this one. I started watching my great courses videos and transcripts to them. Now and again. And while I was doing that, I blurred it out, you got to be kidding. And then I thought, I sound like Raleigh. I better remember this item. Okay. And then I don't know which guy I was in that whole group back then. But it was about milk. They banned milk because I don't remember the details, but like the poor people owned cows and the bourgeois people didn't want to be associated with that. That's actually not right, but what's interesting about the milk war is it was 2009 that Russia banned milk and dairy products from Belarus, which killed the Belarus dairy industry. So apparently they were after milk repeatedly, but it's not milk. Okay, at least I didn't have to be sure I didn't say it anymore. It's a wonderful answer. Thank you for trying. Okay, bye. All right, good deal. So yeah, it is. 888-876-5593. And let's see. Johnny Dee in Ohio, welcome back to WGN radio. Yeah, I will, I was good to hear from Casey Kimberly. Yes. Earlier? Yes. I'll tell you. She sounds younger and more confident and she did years ago. Exactly. I guess education fade off her. Finally, yeah, well, you know, she majored in German. I'm not a 100% sure how that pays off, but yes, really, I know she was a PhD or something. Yeah, absolutely. Wow. Anyhow, you're also mentioned the people from the Paleolithic are hair turns white. No, we don't have to go that far back. Yeah, I'll tell you. Well, my hair is like kind of like pepper, but my beard's all white. Yeah, well, give it time the rest will follow suit. Anyhow, and then one fellow to get a monopoly, that was going to be one of my guesses. It's a great gift. And I'm sure we did ban that, but that's not it. All right, well, then I also thought, well, earning property. That I think that was the whole concept. But no, no, this would not be this would not be a serious answer as far as I'm concerned. I think that he really had to be down to nitpicking to decide to ban this. Mustache wax. No. He had a mustache, Jimmy. I don't know. Joseph Stalin. I'm not visual. I have no idea what these people look like. Oh my God, that's how you are. You have a big mustache, doesn't call it. Very good. Okay, all right. Nice talking to you. Thanks for calling. I appreciate it. Bye bye. Yeah, someone was telling me about a disease where you don't recognize people. I thought I never recognized people. I don't have a disease. I just don't think visually. All right, so 8 8 8. And I can see 888-876-5593. Well, sort of. Jim is the first time caller in new Linux, Illinois. Welcome to WGN radio. Hey, good evening. What do you think? I think I may be crazy, but I feel like I heard him talk about things he banned the saxophone. You know, you're the second person to guess that. And I wouldn't be surprised if they did because after all, it was an instrument of sex, but that's not it. Okay, thank you. Call me again. Thank you. Appreciate it. So anytime anything crosses your mind by all means call. Sean is in sandwich. Welcome back to WGN. All right, how about you? I'm going to, I'm doing good. Just driving along listening to you, enjoying your show. Thank you. Well, I'm going to take two quick guesses and I'm just going to take it out right out of America's playbook. Voting and gun rights. Those things matter. This one doesn't. I know, I know. I know it's something obscure. I can't wait to. It's just so out there. And like I said, you'll see what I mean when I say it must have been his own shortcomings, because I just can't figure out how it even think of this. Right. I can't wait to hear it. Thank you. All right, thanks. Appreciate it. All right. Oh my God. You know, banning voting. Well, I mean, why ban it when you can just count the results the way you want? That's right, keep counting until you get the answer. You

"It's like, I fed the dogs. Three of the last four days. That's kind of hard. It's attitude about basketball? Yeah. It's like, it's like, what happened against that Philly game? It's like, it's fine. Two days ago, I had 42 against Sacramento. It's like, yeah, but this was on TNT and this was against your old team. Since he's like keeping like a mental note or whatever and he's like, dude, I played hard on Monday, man. I don't need to play hard today. I looked at my stats. They're really good. How are you giving me shit? Yeah, he doesn't say it. All right, now I can't wait. The number one character of the year for you. 2022 season. I'm on the edge of my seat. I cheated again. I went with the jokic Bros. You know, they were the odds on favorite on FanDuel to get this. I'm not, I'm not shocked. I mean, I was pissed that I couldn't bet on it, but I was trying to, I was going to make a joke about that football. Who's the guy? Calvin Ridley, doing the coward. Decided not to. So this is like with a big caveat of that jokic brothers Twitter account. That got created the night that markie Morris gave the little elbow to yo kitchen and jokic ran marquee for his over. And that knocked him out for half the season. He didn't play again until the week ago. He was in the beginning of November, and he didn't play again until March 12th. And we learned a valuable lesson about bullying. And don't mess with the mess of the oakes. The Morris brother tweets wait until bro turned his back, checking my head. Noted. And then he did the writing emoji, which is the one that I think a lot of people forget about. And I like it, and I would like to just writing about you. It's like a hand with a pen, you know? And then he says, noted, I think that's combo. He's literally noting it with the emoji. Yes. I appreciate the visual. Yeah. They responded to that with, you should leave this alone instead of publicly threatening our brother. Your brother made a dirty play first. If you want to make a step further, be sure, we will be waiting for you. Oh yeah. And there is a world where this is just that it's not real, but it is not it wasn't even a month later, like the videos started going around like late November right before December, something like that, the jokic, the jokic and his brothers were in some club in Miami. Yeah. And like playing the Serbian national anthem and there was like a big sign that said like NBA MVP, you know. And it was just one of the things I was like, oh yeah, these guys are just, they don't care about it. And look at them. Why would they? You know, you got tattoos on the back of your neck. You're not, you know, I don't have anything to do. I don't have anything to say. You know, sure. It's amazing. We found an NBA player who has two brothers that are somehow not intimidated by the Morris brothers. Just the fact that we got there. But you could do a podcast on the history of MBA stars and their brothers or family members. 'cause I remember when we were doing the bill and Jalen stuff when we did a whole thing about Tony Parker's night club that he opened in San Antonio that was run by his brother that immediately went to the ground and we had pictures of it and the name and it was like what were the ads Tony Parker's brother was going to open a successful nightclub in San Antonio. Like 20 to one? It's pretty it's pretty wild that like I mean it was the sun's game last year when the brothers like tried to come out of the stands on. Right. Oh yeah, they got mad. It was Booker, right? Yeah, they didn't like it. They didn't like something. Yeah. You know, I feel like the NBA is both over covered in undercover. LeBron is the most over covered guy we've had really since the heyday of Kobe. And on the flip side, the oak ridge brothers like, why wouldn't they what's that NBA show that Malik Andrews host where it's like coming out of the gate? It's like, is this team for real? Yeah, no, it's not called the jump anymore. It's whatever they had said, let's go to woj. Has some information on contract extension. To me, I would just start with the oak brothers. But here's what's new with the oak ridge brothers today. If lavar and lavar has been vindicated in a lot of ways, if lavar ball can go on first take, I don't see why the yogurt brothers can't go in there and debate Steven. It's a great point. Maybe they should come on here. Jokic brothers, I'm extending an invitation. It's called NBA today, by the way. If the oak ridge brothers, come on, would you like to join us? I would love how I love to a four man pod that I'd love to get in on that. All right, writing emoji to you. Great job at the list. Congratulations to the jokic brothers for winning Tyler's character of the year. We can redo what's your next piece on the ringer. Next.

"Lot of powdered potato. Well, let me tell you, when I was a product manager, I'm Betty Crocker's brownies puddings, cookie mixes and pie crust. I gained my freshman 15. All right, so you are there for, I think, at least ten years, a General Mills, maybe a little longer. And then in the late 80s, you get a job offer a craft, which I'm assuming is a huge competitor was in a big deal. Were people at General Mills, you're going to craft? No, actually, it wasn't a big deal at all because I worked for General Mills for ten years, and my first 6 years I worked in the food group. But General Mills developed this strategy that said, we can do brand management for more than just food. So they created the General Mills toy group, and they bought 13 toy companies, and they said we can do brand management in toys and games. They bought specialty retail shops like Eddie Bauer and Talbot and said we can do brand management in specialty retail. They said we can do brand management in other areas like fashion and they jewelry and eyesight at one point in time. So the strategy of brand management and being brilliant with the consumer was the game plan for General Mills at that point in time. And so I went, I had an opportunity to go be director of marketing for Parker brothers toys and games in Boston. And so, I mean, it was a great situation. And my wife and I and our one son moved out to Boston, had another son while we were there. We were the most popular family on the block because the kids would be sitting on the stoop when we got home when I got home to see what I was bringing home from work. So, I mean, you had gone from Yukon from food to toys in the same company and it sounds like it was a pretty seamless transition. You just another brand that you're managing. Well, in that sense, it was, but what I, I mean, over time, I've seen that every sector has nuances that you can either leverage or can be your undoing. In the toy and game business or General Mills ultimately decided it wasn't for them and they sold off the entire toy unit. Three years later at which point I went, I lost my job. I went into work one day and senior vice president of marketing asked me to come up to his office as I.

"Where we talked about French or people are using tiles to make the French countryside, the meatballs show who controls what specific area of the board. It's kind of the unofficial gaming mascot at this point just because of how big it is, it's become, and then if you're looking for a game that has the most maples in it because you need a lot of meatballs for some reason, that game is almost definitely the game key flower from 2012. The game contains a 141 wooden peoples in 5 different colors plus an additional 120 wooden resource token fits. Wow. Now, obviously this is less impressive in comparison to glue haven's 20 pounds. But still, carcassonne only weighs a pound and a half, the box for key flower weighs just a little bit north of three pounds. Just because of how many of these wooden bits are in. That's a lot of meatballs. Yeah, that's a lot of meatballs. And much like with a jigsaw puzzle, is it one of those things where it's like if you, if you lose a couple of pieces, it's all over for you hose. You know what I mean? Do you know what I'm saying? Luckily, there's a lot of places that actually just mass produce people, which is in a bunch of different colors. Oh, sure, yeah. So you could just like go out and just like, they're kind of like board game candy. You just like the orange ones. And the yellow ones in the vivid thing ones. But yeah. All right. So you can just mask by them. Yeah, exactly. Mass by them if you want them, but if you want a game that literally is just, this is a box of meatballs with a few cardboard bites in it. KPop is your child. All right. In is for net runner. Netrunner is the one little, not exactly a board game twist. I'm gonna throw in this topic. It originally started its life as a traditional trading card game from wizards of the coast in the late 90s, who was later revived by fantasy flight games from 2012 to 2018 as something called a living card game. Okay. So I'm gonna trading card game, I hand you a booster pack of cards, you open it up, there are X amount of random cards in the pack. With a living card game, I hand you a pack of cards, you open that pack up, and I hand someone else the same pack of cards, both of those packs are going to have the exact same cards in it. Okay. Okay. So in a living card game, you can always guarantee that you know exactly what you're going to get and you're going to know exactly what cards you have in order to build the decks that you're going to be playing with. Because to a TCG where you could buy four booster boxes and never get the card that you needed. I say, okay. Okay. The game was originally created by Richard Garfield, which most people I believe would immediately associate with magic the gathering, but that's not the only thing he's done. He actually has a pretty big board game output as well. A robo rally was his first board game, and he's also produced the game's king of Tokyo and bunny kingdom as well. Bunny kingdom. It is a game bunny kingdom is a game about building up a mass amount of bunnies in an area that then just kind of explode all over the kingdom. Wow, okay. I mean, it's right there in the name, huh? It should be right there in the name. Netrunner is also an example of an asymmetrical game. Again, we're going to touch on that topic in a bit. Okay, okay. Now, up to this point, I've had pretty solid ends for all of the letters. There are a couple of these letters that could only be one thing in the letter O is one of them. There were a couple of choices. I could have chosen on itama, which is a two player board game and talked about two player games. There were a couple smaller fringe games that I didn't feel comfortable putting here, but I have chosen O to be for Peter oca. Peter olotka isn't a really big well-known name, but you should know the game that he is known for designing and that game is cosmic encounter. The game was originally published by Parker brothers, but he founded along with the other three creators of the game, the company eon productions to start publishing the game after it got dropped by Parker brothers. Fantasy flight also picked up the license for this game and from the original 6 aliens in the original Parker brothers version across all expansions there are now over 195 different alien races that you can play as in your game of cosmic encounter. You could probably make up some and people might not realize that you were to know BS ing your way through it. I mean, honest to God, like when you get to some of these later expansions, you look at these and you're just like, okay, so what exactly were they on when they actually decided? What these were supposed to be? All right, that takes us over to P, which is for pandemic. No, no. Not the COVID one. Oh, okay. I love this game so much, but I have not picked it up since March. Before the pandemic, ironically, so this is actually one of the interesting things is that everything that happened kind of fueled purchasing this game a little bit. Yeah. Crazy. Oh, boy. But let's dive. Game was created by Matt leacock and published for the first time in 2008. The game was inspired by SARS, not COVID. Right. And as of 2021, has sold over 5 million copies of the game. It's awesome. Okay. We're now going to talk about what a cooperative game is because pandemic is the one that a lot of people point to as their first cooperative game. So a co op game or cooperative game is one where all of the players of the game are working together and you either win or lose against the game itself as a team. That's interesting. Yeah, so in pandemic, you are working with all of the other players at the table who are all part of the CDC and you're working to eradicate four separate different global outbreaks at the same time. While also searching for a cure for that disease..

"It has the same level of these big crunchy decisions. Sure, it doesn't have that gimmick. But if that gimmick is gonna cost you like a hundred pounds, it's probably not worth it. You know, it's funny with stuff like this, you can see how people end up going down the roots that they do go down to ending up creating these special dice that have Wi-Fi and glow and roll themselves around the table, right? Because it's like, I look at this and I think about this. And I think as a component, what a delightful thing. Like having the modular dice that you can change the faces of. And the thing that that leads me to think is, well, surely the way to get around this is to have to invent the dice with some easy a generic way of swapping out bits and then using them in a variety of different games and you buy these dice and then of course I can see how you end up if you're going to go down that route then you end up going too far. You know, there's so much scope for really interesting stuff within that idea of what happens if you hack a dice and have a game where you can actually modify dice. But it feels like there's no room for that to be explored without us landing into a mire of just excessively expensive, potentially gimmicky things. Right, exactly. And there's something that's nice about the fact that Dijon's does have within the box. It has so many different kinds of faces and you can pull what faces you use out of a bag randomly. So you have this potentially infinite number of setups for like really bizarre interactions between the faces and really strange, but ultimately what you're paying for for this $120 game is that gimmick, that tactile experience of popping out a diet face. And it's a lovely experience. It's so nice that this is a multiplayer solitaire game, effectively. People are sat on the table, you're doing the same thing. Well, actually, it might not be depending on how many attack faces are in the game. But the games that we played were very gentle. And everyone doing their own thing. And there's something so nice about the end of the round being everyone just popping out these little faces doing their own little craft project almost. And then starting to roll again and getting more stuff. But as it stands, I just don't think this is something that I'm going to pull off the shelf enough to justify that price. It's so cool to show people, but goodness. Much like Diaspora, it may just be a game you see people playing at conventions for years to come in that it's kind of too much to want to have it, but you want to try it. Yeah. But yeah, there's got to be a middle ground. How can we call on? We need to reunite the Parker brothers. Get the gang back together, and they're going to make a whole new kind of dice. They're going to I was about to say they're going to make triangular dice. They already exist. Imagine a worldwide games publisher union where they come together to make some universal components. So they'd be like right, have the universal component pack for this next for the year. And then everyone makes games that uses those, right? There's something like wooden cube wooden cube two wooden.

"That would have been in 5th grade. So, okay. Okay. Yep. Well, what about now, Sam, what are some of the games that you really go to when it's game night, this seems to be the always the same one we go to or kind of gravitate to more? What are some of those that you really really love? Here I ask me to pick my favorite kid. Sure. You know, the favorite child. I mean, I know a good go to of like, you know, because it's easy. I definitely like easy to learn. While still being fairly challenging in a way or just or at the mercy of just down luck. So I mean, a good one would be Virginia triangle is an older classic that is basically been a standard of, you know, whenever we haven't don't have any other ideas because I mean it is, it is just a roll and move, but then there's some other kind of random element that, you know, it's kind of you can plan out a little bit, but it's still, you know, best laid plans kind of thing. Sure. Okay. All right. We love doing a triangle. It is one of our favorites around here. It's a vintage game, but it's just so cool it has it has a storm that moves through it with magnets on it and you're both have magnets on it. So there's always a chance that the storm's gonna snatch you up and then you're both stuck on the storm and that's just what you deal with now. And I don't know, it is really simple like you said, but it's super fun. It's really exciting. Yeah. Yeah, describe that. I only had a couple of printings, so I mean, if you see a copy of one snap it up because it was gonna say it's not super rarer collectible, but it doesn't come around that often. I only have two copies, and then Alma and Jamie and Drake house has one. Yeah, we have one. And then I know one other person that bought it on eBay because I told her to. So I think that's probably like half the copies that are out there now. Really? Okay. So it's kind of a collectible. I recognize the name, but I don't know that I've played it. What's a ballpark price for it on eBay? Do you think we've been playing on the mat for ours? And I'm pretty sure it was Milton Bradley. So it's like a major publisher or no, it's Parker brothers. I'm pretty sure it's Parker brothers. But it was a major publisher..

Oh my whole thing with aquafina in one of her episodes were like she can be a twelve year old forty year old. I have no idea how she is the one with michelle. I'm sorry. I let i like norfolk.

I'm going to do this and that which is interesting. I don't. I can't remember why these people like at one point. The kennard ouija board got sold off and I believe that was in nineteen sixty six nineteen sixty seven Parker brothers ended up. Buying parker brothers. Hasbro ended up buying the rights to the ouija board just Probably because the people that had previously owned it were all having issues serious bad. yeah events following them And it was passed that point it was It it. I think they said it. In that year in nineteen sixty seven two million ouija boards were sold two million two million and that particular year it had outsold monopoly which was the highest ranking..

Many moons by person and then like parker brothers who else would invent it. Pardon who else would infect person wasn't created by a company was modified by a company over the years and they actually modified some of the rules in like a two thousand eight. I told he takes this seriously. Well and they have all sorts of versions of monopoly. Now yeah but i. I hope they stick to the rules. I mean you can call it anything you want. You can change names of a tweak. The names of the properties and stuff like that but he got to play by the rules history of monopoly by the way.

"Definitely bolstered by the fact that it had been so thoughtfully designed for polio hospital words full of children and for children bedridden at home. But also you know it stuck around because it's just a a nice game and yeah. I thought that was a really a really lovely story about you. Know somebody doing what they could to make the world a little friendlier and a little less dull for kids during a really tough time. Which i think is something that we can really appreciate right now. Okay and just we're gonna talk about monopoly and capitalism now. Yeah yeah we are. Got them okay. So yeah i came across the history of monopoly while researching this and i was just so gobsmacked by that i had to share it. Wasn't this wasn't a totally new story to me. But it was one of those things where the details that was like. This is so much more. Wild than the way i've heard. This story told before so monopoly with also invented by a woman. Un-american writer and feminist named elizabeth maggi she designed. She called the landlord game at the turn of the twentieth century. And it was designed to make people understand why it's bad for people to buy up all the land and make a bunch of money that way. She supported something called the single tax movement which basically held that instead of taxing income all land and natural resources should be shared equally. And the way to make that happen. Was that if you owned more of that land you should be taxed. Accordingly and any of the funds that were needed to run the government should be redistributed equally to the people so like not quite socialism. Kind of a capital capitalist take on socialism actually seen the single tax movement laid out before. But she was a big proponent of it and the landlord game it was basically designed to you could either amass as much property as possible and get rich while other players went bankrupt. Or you can play with like cooperative rules and taxes and see everyone prosper financially and the point of one person winning at the cost of everyone else having zero dollars to make people see how gross capitalism was not to glorify it. I kind of feel like that's not the message. People take from it. No it is not. It is definitely my father was ruthless. So how did it get away from her. She literally was quoted saying let the children once see clearly the gross injustice of our present land system. And when they grow up if they are allowed to develop naturally the evil will soon be remedied which actually reminds me of the story. We have in the use issue kind of the same idea. We have a feature about battling the huge issues of ethical lapses in designing a i in algorithms and how one tactic is to Basically have a summer camp where kids learn about a ethics with the idea that like you just need to help need to make this part of the everyday curriculum so that one day the people who are writing these algorithms have actually thought about these issues so those with matchy had this idea of capitalism unfortunately for her in one thousand nine thirty four during the great depression this guy named charles darrow sold game called monopoly to parker brothers it was literally the same elizabeth's game But with a retooled goal of leading players who were broken unemployed. Enjoy the fantasy of becoming rich. The parker brothers did realize the similarities between this and the landlord game and so they offered elizabeth a one time payment of five hundred dollars for the right to print both monopoly and landlord game. Which based on. What i've read is why she said yes. She was like great. Whatever they can make this monopoly thing. This grows capitalist riff on my game but it will also give a bigger platform to the landlord game. Unfortunately they only actually produce the landlord game for a very brief period. It was not as popular as monopoly. And then they quietly killed it in favor of the gross and ironic version. We all know and love and own multiple copies of today. I had the star trek next generation themed monopoly growing up Really loved that anyway. I loved this story. Not just because it reminds me of several of our stories in the youth issue about trying to teach children a new way through play in games. but also just. Because you're the things you put out in the world can really get away from you and Yeah that's that's that's the bottom line is maybe don't sell your Your anti-capitalist game to major corporation might not work out but candy land. Worked out yeah. It's true candy. Lynn did work out. That's true so good on them. Is there a video game. Version of candy land is the revere on my gosh is i know there are computer games for game of life which was my favorite game as a kid. Yes i play the computer game and over. Okay great well. And i. I think i played like passing play and he can't remember if it was candy land. Vr would be fun but also maybe nauseating. Yeah that's true. I yeah i just feel like the kind of like the chocolate swamp guys would really scare me in vr. I found them really scary even on the word all right. We're gonna take a quick break. But then i'll.

"How halloween has grassed and change in the united states but its popularity has really skyrocketed in the last fifty years. Yes totally different than it was. When i think of like my grandparents when they were growing up on halloween was it was for adults and even just commercially completely different. Now like a in. Some ways probably doesn't even look similar. It's definitely my favorite holiday. Yeah but yeah used to be really Yeah they're very different so that yeah the person you talked to you know. He's probably grown up in the forties and fifties. And so yeah. It wasn't the same you know it was starting to become you know what we think of as halloween but by that is interesting that salem has tried to deny their their history at points understandably and at that then at a certain point. You're like all right. Let's just embrace it. Yeah yeah it's it's very interesting And i don't think. I realized how horrific view which trials were until i went there. We're able to able able to go to museums really read a lot more Kind of what. I had you know. Read in high school when i read. The crucible was like a very quick gloss. His you know partially fictitious overview But the details of the trials are so Horrific definitely makes sense why they would want to distance themselves then after so much time has passed.

It says that you are all about ping pong and ping pong. Saved your life from the streets so before we get back into the streets of new york city Tell us about what is what is ping pong. And why is it called ping pong and not. I don't know pepper corn. Oh man pingpong is is a really amazing sport. It's it's a. It's like taking tennis putting it on a small table putting a net and playing just like tennis separates a lot faster so the word ping pong actually mean ping pong dates back way back. I i don't even remember the exact date what i can tell you. Is that some people get angry with the word ping pong a lot of pro players when here called table tennis In england they actually totally hate the word paint paul but there is some history behind it. It was called ping pong. And then parker brothers decided they wanted to copyright the name ping pong so they copyrighted name and force. Anyone who want to use the name to pay money to use it The us association said. We're not gonna do that. We're just gonna change. They call table tennis. So the original name was ping pong. And secondly the best people in the world by far is china and they call it ping pong so ping pong. It is oh right. I was wondering if i table tennis ping pong. I never really gave it any real thought. But now that you're thinking saying like okay. They're the same thing. Yeah i yeah. I didn't even know the same thing. I just took it as be something different. Because i never paid attention okay. It's pretty much the same thing.

"Real world make stuff happen but he'll tell you straight up and i think this is lost on a lot of people that is totally real me. Anyone who thinks that. That isn't. I mean it's not like going to happen. It's like hello it is happening. Yeah you now. If you'd like to trade stock or even buy stock you are competing with an a. I robot all the time and we all get it from google search right. I mean they couldn't possibly do all the manipulation. They do that. We see with google search. I mean that is being controlled by an a i intelligence so the real question mark that you have and listen to some amazing interviews where you're kind of taking it to that next level of okay. What happens so we gotta go two ways. Either you go kind of the luddite way in you. Kind of say well. I don't believe he is happening. You know they told me we'd have flying cars by now. And i don't see any cars flying around Do you ha- so you can kind of go that route or you can kind of go. The other extremist route. And say i bow down to you don overlord. You will control everything. And i don't think either one of those very productive. What i think we need to do is again kind of apply the same kind of thinking. We've been talking about in terms of the reality of consciousness. The reality of the extended realm the attempt that we've seen to have to want to engineer that because that seems to be at play and ramana talk about some of the dark stuff. We'll talk but in k. Ultra talk about satanic ritual abuse. Because when you do you're gonna find that what they were trying to do was weaponize extended consciousness in very kind of a way that a computer programmer would be comfortable with and away. So is there that engineering part of this extended realm. And that's the kind of conversation. I think we need to move into if we're really going to get serious about understanding what this. Ai might mean. But i'm super interested in could mean this more suits surly. What your opinion is on that. Because i've listened to some of the interviews you've done and i think you're very much on the cutting edge of stitching some of those pieces together. So where are you currently on that. Well you know. I try to stay pretty neutral in. Just ask the questions. But i have a lot of concerns about a and the reason i asked you. That question was really just to lead into this more extreme aspect of it and your book you include some talk about aliens and spirits too and that is one of the exciting ideas. That's been coming up around here. Is what if what we're being told is is actually a channel being living end the electromagnetic spectrum if a piece of cardboard from parker brothers can be used as a mode of contact with a spirit. Maybe some of these computer systems are more like digital ouija boards for beans outside of physical reality. The fact that a lot of these people denied there's an extended consciousness means like they'll never start asking that question. But i think a lot of the guests. I've interviewed myself and the audience. And you are open to the idea that there are intelligences. Without bodies out there maybe they can attach to a computer system and emulate a type of intelligence just being themselves but the programmer thinks they created it but wrote they might have created is a vessel that something entered into. I think these are interesting questions. You in the program obey. I do you think it's possible will almost bring it back to what i was alluding to before because i think we can again kind of stitch those two things together and may be together. We can see where we're at. So i talked not too long ago to whitley strieber. Very famous contact. D i mean by contacting number one communion everyone in important important person in history part of his history that a lot of people don't know about and he hasn't talked a lot about until lately is as a. m. k. Ultra victim as a very young kid at a school and what i thought was interesting about that. And that's what. I was alluding to some just gonna make it a little bit more explicit. So people know what they were doing is they're taking these kids eight or nine years old and they're locking them in faraday cages which prevents electromagnetic magnetic signals from coming in or out of box. So they're doing science he kind of control stuff. And then what they were doing is really evil satanic crap. No killing little animals right in front of the kids terrorizing the kids. I don't know about sexual abuse because we can't report it in this case but in other similar cases it seems to be at play drugs. Can't report it in this case but another case that seems to be applied in whitley reports that the only way he believes he even survived. That experience is that he got very very sick. Me go to the hospital and was at the hospital. For seven days in his mind came to visit him. And we kind of put an end to this whole thing but he has connected with other kids from san antonio of that time that were in there and he said some never made it out or made it out as shells of who they formerly. Were you know. Stayed in their house until they're are fifty years old and then died a lonely death. That was the kid right across the street from but to finish this story. What they were doing was they. Were trying to create disassociate of identity disorder. You run into this again and again. I've heard you report it on. Thc so here is a technology. If you will of saying if i can create this alter personality in if i can routinely do it then maybe i can figure out a way to jump me into that extended realm so i connect that with what you're saying about the parker brothers ouija board which i think is awesome but now i think we're talking about exactly the same thing and you can imagine some evil genius sidney gottlieb type of our version of joseph mandalay sitting there going. Oh let's see how this works and is this mar effective aunt. Why wouldn't we attach the latest and greatest technology the latest and greatest computer the latest and greatest. Whatever of course if you will go that far if you'll lock eight year old kids in faraday cages and traumatize them in order to create a dissociated identity within them..

We just additions, but basically the week aboard always has had A negative rap since the beginning. I mean, because we're doing with death with him, and with the mysterious we're dealing with the unknown people always have. Oh, project their own fears upon that, But yes, Hollywood took it wrote it. And really did well with it. I mean, I'm not a softer than my salute them for, you know, taking this adrenaline rush of people get when they see something scary or experience something fearful, and they took by the way, George, one of the most popular items. On by people, you know, causes addicts, you know, lost away wherever in their show of a toy that was sold and by the way was considered toy, though, was told of the game, although I don't think it's that way, but but went in 1966 when it was sold. For William Fold company to Parker Brothers. That year alone until 1967 and out sold the largest selling game of the time, which was monopoly, So they took something in 1973 with the Exorcist. When the movie came out the actions the book came out 71. But when the movie came out 73, they took something that was really well known and very popular people's homes. Yes, Hollywood really took it to the next level. But I gotta say there's always been a negative negative stigma associated with the board. Always always let's take some calls here for you. But yours another hand, always a positive a stigma as well. So good look way, But we're talking about the negative right now, Right once. What's the positive spin that Hollywood's done? Oh, well, not so much Hollywood back. I tell you, this board has been used to begin of time when it came out. It's been used to communicate with people, their lost loved ones and the time of war. Civil war were one where we're, too. It was also used earlier on the early 1900 speak to spirits or a serial beings or guides, or, um, you know, Jane Robertson was popular this back in the you know. 50 60 70. Was she using the board to talk to step and then she got the board immediately started going into more of a meditation to talk to Seth.
