A highlight from How the US Stole $3 Billion in BITCOIN! (CRAZY STORY)
"The secret Bitcoin billionaire. It's a story involving partying, burglary, online drug markets, and the IRS. His name is Jimmy Zong, and at one point he held over $3 billion of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. It was stored in this popcorn tin in his lake house at Gainesville, Georgia, before being seized by authorities. The saga dates back to the earliest days of Bitcoin and ends right in my backyard of Athens, Georgia. It's time to discover the secret Bitcoin billionaire. Jimmy's story starts in the earliest days of Bitcoin. He was mining as early as 2009, the year Bitcoin launched, and boasted he mined over 300 ,000 Bitcoin. This is a value of over $9 billion today. He contributed to the Bitcoin code and even offered ideas to the early developers on how to reduce blockchain size. But Jimmy would go from being an early architect of Bitcoin to the world's most infamous Bitcoin hacker. The year was 2012. Silk Road had been launched the year prior by Ross Ulbricht, a libertarian who believed in the power of free markets. He created Silk Road so people could buy and sell anything they wanted, including a legal contraband, without government interference. It was like the Wild West, but with more drugs and less horses. The Walmart of the Dark Web, and it was an instant hit. It was a hit for Jimmy as well. Jimmy had developed somewhat of a reputation as a party animal in the downtown Athens bar scene. And not only was he a party animal, he was willing to splurge. Here's Jimmy's friend, Stefana Masich, describing Jimmy's behavior while downtown partying. buy He would me and my friends drinks, and then there were multiple times too where he would buy shots for everyone at the bars. He would buy shots for every single person in the bar? I mean like 100 people? Yeah, pretty much. But Jimmy didn't stop at alcohol, however. While downtown at a bar, he once bragged that he had $30 ,000 of cocaine back at his house. So, Jimmy was in a restaurant talking to some girls, and he happens to mention that he has $30 ,000 worth of blow at his house if they want to come back and party. $30 ,000 worth of coke. $30 ,000 of cocaine. Unfortunately for Jimmy, there was an off -duty police officer sitting in the restaurant one table over. That's just bad timing. It was really bad timing. Bad timing indeed. According to Jimmy, he used Silk Road to purchase the illegal substance. But Jimmy wouldn't just be a user of the site. He would later hack Silk Road for 50 ,000 Bitcoin. The details surrounding the hack seem odd for someone with Jimmy's knowledge of computer sciences. It wasn't exactly the criminal plans of a mastermind, rather something much more simple. In his statement, Jimmy says that the way he stole these Bitcoin was he was withdrawing some assets from Silk Road. He had been using it to purchase cocaine, and he realized if he simply double clicked, he could withdraw more than he had put in. Is that what happened? To the instance that he would just double click the withdraw button, we don't know the answer to that question. I mean, that seems awfully simple. But at the time, Jimmy wasn't punished. In fact, he was rewarded. According to Jimmy, Ross Ulbricht was so impressed, he reached out to offer a bonus for discovering the flaw. In addition to letting him keep the 50 ,000 Bitcoin for discovering the vulnerability, Dread Pirate Roberts gave Jimmy an additional 5 ,000 Bitcoin. However, it is important to note that whether or not Jimmy Zong and Ross Ulbricht had communication is in question. The federal prosecutors investigating the case were unable to find any proof. My name is Trevor MacLeanon. I'm a special agent with IRS Criminal Investigation. Jimmy alleges it. We couldn't find any evidence to support that position. But at the time of the hack, Bitcoin was only $10 a coin. But as Bitcoin ballooned in price, the 50 ,000 missing Bitcoin garnered more and more attention from the IRS Criminal Investigation Division. But it would be years later before there is a crack in the case. Here's Sean McGruder, Blocktrace CEO. His company is a contractor for the IRS and other government agencies that assists with complicated blockchain transactions. One of these special agents who I work with on the team calls me and says, hey, Sean, can you help out and assist with this? We can just take a look at it, you know, over the course of the weekend, that'd be great. And this was on a Friday. By Monday, I came back with an answer and said, hey, I think we might have something here. That something ended up being Jimmy's downfall. It was a big mistake from a small transaction. Jimmy had once sent $800 worth of his funds to an exchange with KYC, or Know Your Customer. An exchange with KYC will require their customers to share their name and identifying information. After another unexpected big break, investigators would follow these clues right to Jimmy's doorstep. That big break would actually be a break in. After a trip with friends that Jimmy lavishly paid for, he would come back home to discover his house in Athens, Georgia, had been broken into. The thieves would make out with more than $400 ,000. And even though he was sitting on tens of thousands of stolen Bitcoin worth billions of dollars, Jimmy turned to the police. He shared with authorities that in addition to cash, the burglars had stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of Bitcoin as well. This was an opportunity that federal authorities would not let go to waste. They reached out to the Athens Police Department to see if they could use this home invasion as a pretense to search Jimmy's home. They asked me about the Bitcoin and how much was in there and if he talked about where he got it from or anything like that. And I really didn't have the answers for him. But I told them, let me email them and I'm sure Jimmy will meet with us. Jimmy quickly agreed and Lieutenant Jody Thompson, Agent Trevor Macklin from the IRS, and Sean McRuder go visit Jimmy in Athens. Lieutenant Thompson's body cam was rolling the entire time. Zong, without hesitation, lets the investigators write in. Hey, this is Trevor and Sean. They're going to be with the team. Once inside, investigators get Jimmy to open his laptop and log in. What was on the laptop screen would shock investigators. When you're sitting next to him on the couch, he opens his laptop. What do you see on that screen? Low and behold, he had $60 or $70 million worth of Bitcoins right there next to us. So with one glance at the screen on his laptop, you could instantly tell this is a guy who's a credible suspect. He could have pulled this off. That's right. Authorities now had enough to execute their search warrant. Inside they would find $700 ,000 in cash. And inside a bathroom they stumbled upon a Cheetos popcorn tin. Inside the tin was a computer holding the stolen funds from Silk Road. Jimmy Zong's reign had come to an end. The party animal, the secret Bitcoin billionaire, had finally been caught. Jimmy was arranged on charges of wire fraud. And after a tense courtroom battle, he chose to plead guilty. The judge handed down a sentence of one year and a day in federal prison. Jimmy started serving his time behind bars at the federal prison camp in Montgomery, Alabama, July 14, 2023. The end of the saga saw Jimmy stripped of his illicit digital fortune. The U .S. government seized the stolen Bitcoin, ensuring that this chapter of cybercrime was firmly closed. The once daring, hacking maestro had lost everything. As Jimmy exited the courthouse on April 14, a throng of reporters clamored for a statement. Jimmy draped his coat over his head and briskly made his exit, leaving the questions unanswered and the world wondering. Why'd you steal the money, Jimmy? In the end, the secret Bitcoin billionaire's empire crumbled, not with a bang, but with a subdued exit from the world stage. Jimmy Zong, once a key figure at the heart of the digital frontier, now just another shadowy hacker behind bars.

Head to GZMShows .com and you can find out all about it. There are kids in this world who are different. Special. They go to school in a place you can't find on a map. And they're about to get a new classmate. Casey! It's Penn! Remy! Over here! Casey! What's happening? It's Penn! He opened a portal? He didn't mean to. We need to stop him. Hey! Wake up! No, Remy! Stay back! Why is this happening? Best guess? My power combined with his equals something really bad. How do we stop it? I can feel him pulling power from me. The gloves! The ones the headmaster put on me to control my powers. They're here, right? I think so. We had them on the beach. Quick! Find them! Hurry! The portal's getting bigger! I'm trying! It's starting to suck things in! Come! Get them on me! Oh no, Casey! It's got me! Penn, listen to me. You can do this. Close the portal. Casey? Penn, fight it! Bassinet! Cut it loose! The bassinet? Yes, of course. That's part of it. Hurry! I got it! I'm going through! Guys, what was that? Guys? Brinley? Casey? Cyrus? Brinley? Where are you? Here. I can barely hear you. Are you okay? I think so. Casey is here too. The rocks that came down, I... I don't think I can get to you. Is Jude with you? Is anyone there? Hello? I need a hand. Jude, it's Cyrus. Where are you? Down here! Down? Down where... Whoa. What happened? Looks like the ground opened up. I can barely see him down there. Stay where you are, Brinley. I'm gonna try and help him. Jude? Watch your step, mate. Thanks, but I'm a little more worried about you. This thing is deep. Here, I'm gonna try and reach down. If you can, grab my hand. I don't think I can let go of this rock. Listen, Jude, we need to get you out of here. And what about Brinley and Casey? I think they're okay. Once you're back up here, we'll try and reach them. Sounds like an excellent plan. Good. Now, whatever you do, don't look down. Too late. Why are there all those sparks down there? Don't know, but this isn't going to work if you don't follow my directions, because if you fall even a foot, I have a feeling the electric shock will do you in before you hit the ground. This little island, it's man -made too, just like Elixir Key. Apparently. Are you certain Brinley is all right? She's alive, but that's all I know. Jude, I need you to focus on getting off that rock and grabbing onto me. Cyrus, listen. You have to save Brinley, no matter what. Oh, trust me. We've been saving each other long before you came into the picture. The rock is giving way. I got you, Jude. Good catch. Yeah, I know. I'm taller, but unfortunately, the gaining muscle mass wasn't proportional. Cyrus, I got you. I got you. Hang on. Cyrus, Jude, can you hear me? Jude? Cyrus? Still can't decide, huh, Laska? Cyrus? Jude? Cyrus? You be quiet. Just saying. Well, don't just say. Sorry about you with me. I'm here, Brinley. Got any ideas? We appear to be trapped behind the wall of rocks. I could have told you that. Maybe if we both push at the same time. Brinley, how about a little help for your roommate? My roommate? It can't be real. What would be unreal is if I ended up dying in this cave with you. So can you please start digging or pulling or pushing or something? How did we end up here? Who cares? Come on, Laska. This can't be new for you. Don't you, like, live in a cave or an igloo or something? Stop. Stop what? Being brutally honest? Kind of my trademark. First of all? That's my trademark. And we need to talk. Is this where you break up with me as a roommate? Because that horse already left the barn. Look, sorry, not sorry. You got busted cheating on your boyfriend. I was not cheating. But I would like to get out of here instead of dealing with your petty garbage until my last breath. This isn't petty. It's boring is what it is. So either help me help us get out or get out of my way. Hey! Are you trying to start a fight? Because I've had enough. Oh, you've had enough? No, I've had enough. So come on, Katie. Is it true? Is what true? That we need to dig ourselves out and find Cyrus and Jude and the others? You know what I'm talking about, Katie. Why do you keep saying my name like that? Why did you never tell me that was your name? This? This is seriously what you're upset about right now? We have got to reorder your priorities. Stop it. Stop trying to gaslight me. I spent the last few months looking for the truth and it was in front of me the entire time. You were my roommate. I don't know what you're talking about. And frankly, I don't give a flying hoot. Your initials are KZ. Yeah, so? And your name is Katie with a K. Did you hit your head during the quake, you quack? Seriously not the time to compare weird spellings of names. Brinley with an E -I -G -H. Is... Is Katie short for anything? I'm so over this. What does the C stand for? Look around, Brinley. Our friends, they're disappearing or being kidnapped or being experimented on. We are stuck in a cave. What does the C stand for? Cavendish, okay? Cavendish, happy? I got to the island. They told me my name was Cadence Cavendish, but that I should only ever go by Casey. Now, can we please move on? How... How is this possible? It's you. This entire time, it's been you. Hey, now that you've listened to this week's episodes, head on over to the GZM Rewind feed to hear me and the creators talk about the latest episodes with special guests, including cast members and superfans.

today i'm sure you heard already jets begin aaron rogers 21-day practice window and next up in recovery from torn achilles tendon this is like a modern day medical miracle if this guy is able to come back ap report out of florin park new jersey what a beautiful place that is aaron rogers improbable comeback from a torn achilles tendon has taken the next step the new york jets opened the 21-day practice window for the quarterback today exactly 11 weeks after he had surgery with rogers cleared for some football activities coach robert salah said the four-time nfl mvp who turns 40 on saturday wow will be limited at practice and is not cleared for contact sailor said salah said there's no added risk in taking this step emphasizing it's not necessarily a signal that rogers will play again this season as much as it is the next part of the quarterback's but we'll see for aaron what he will be doing in practice is no different than what he'd be doing on the field with regards to certain drills and individual drills salah said instead of throwing with staff members he's throwing with teammates at the end of the 21-day period the jets will have to make a decision whether to activate him or spend the rest of the season on ir this is all part of his plan he's been taking all these steps with his rehab very aggressive rehab a lot different than what players normally normally achilles tendon you're shut down for the year it's over it's standard ops you're not going to play again that season you'll be fortunate to be in training camp the following year with an early year injury right big day that's your experience with watching this over many years of sports like myself what would possibly be the reason i mean seriously whatever they're doing medically it is i don't know what i know he went about this a different way but what possibly would be the reason to try to rush him back to play this year just what is the reason there's absolutely zero reason well the jets are four and seven they lost their last four in a row and they host well they host atlanta falcons who right now believe it or not lead the south not with much of a record but uh yeah there's i don't i don't see any upside to him coming back big d even though they desperately could utilize a quarterback i think aaron was going to throw for them earlier today before she came to the show but uh yeah i don't know what's going to happen with that team i mean aaron you're a huge you're a huge fan you follow the team i mean is there any any situation that you would want to see them back honestly at this point no i feel like it's really not worth it because i feel like if you watched any part of the dolphins game that happened last week you can just tell the o-line gave up completely even after zach wilson doubt tim boils in there was no difference because the o-line has 100 given up so in my opinion i would like to see him come back obviously because i want him to take them to more wins but the playoffs are out of the question already so there's just no point yeah totally agree i totally agree with that analysis and not very good analysis right on point totally uh just one more quick one big day i absolutely love this story really warms my heart flyers sign nine-year-old with with cancer to one day contract this is espn.com the philadelphia flies had a special guest read out at their

their four-to-one loss to carolina hurricanes he also lent his experience as captain of pennsylvania genesis hockey club to the team while hanging out on the bench with ked coach john tortorola and over the next year machichi will be undergoing additional cancer treatments to address new tumors on his spine according to six abc.com no doubt the flyers will be rooting for their youngest teammate all the way and that's where sports really shows class even a team like the flyers we don't have a lot of class that's a fantastic story sorry flyers fans the broad street bullies i thought that was a great story for that young man owen machichi congratulations that's a wrap big day all right slick rick very good we'll do some more sports with slick before the end of the night you on all of these left-wing shows and he said yesterday that or the day before that the um he's got momentum and me and delgado were tossing around last night whether that meant he was rolling down a hill or what that meant i saw this headline delgado in the new york post today and i think i know now what he means police search for thief who stole van loaded with 10 000 crispy cream donuts did you see this story yeah come on a search is underway for an opportunistic donut thief who tore away from a service station early this morning in a crispy cream van 10 000 donuts in the van while the driver of the van was inside paying for i guess a coffee or something uh the vehicle was on its way to newcastle to make a variety of deliveries including christmas themed and classic donuts police are currently searching for the van and the sweet tooth thief so i think we may have our answer delgado on what what kind of momentum he was talking about yeah well yeah yeah of course he he wants to get to the bottom of that story real quick you can imagine you know exactly damon i just wanted to add um according to latest polling trump has amazing numbers uh today he's increased his lead from 44 to 47.5 percent nationwide an at three and he's only at 11 in new hampshire with all his efforts there so he's not gaining any ground no he's going nowhere but again we know his you know we know what his job here is he's a kamikaze uh his job is not to he doesn't he doesn't think he's going to win he doesn't actually think he has momentum he wants to get invited on msnbc and cnn and abc with little georgie so he can go on there and and smash trump that's all he wants to do is smash trump and tell how everybody's going to be a convicted felon by the next year and that's going to change the whole outlook of the thing that's all he wants to do so we we know what his deal is i i would want to get to the bottom of the chris recream van and just make sure that we can rule him out is what i think we should do hi live from studio 6p on a wednesday more to do news with delgado and davis here coming up so hi live from studio 6p on a wednesday night glad you're in slick ricks doing sports rick delgado and david z are going to do some news aaron and fran holding it down as always just a little update on what we talked about the top of the show matt gates which shared some video out of new york city says the consequences of unchecked immigration as seen tonight in new york and now the protesters have now gotten up on the um well i guess if you look at i mean it's hard to see without the visual but they're standing on top of the like address wall in front of the fox news corporation and around the tree and it looks like the crowd is growing from the looks of it so ugly scenes tonight in um in new york city yeah but as i'm seeing uh i'm seeing some some on new york posts as well they got live video yeah so and as gate says um the consequences of unchecked immigration the consequences of a lot of things uncheck you know um taking the power away from our police department to do anything as they stand there and basically watch they're afraid to do anything of course and uh it's a lot of things consequences of and this is why new york city has become well not a great place to visit now even around the holidays or any other time because any you know they closed the manhattan bridge the other day i saw that protest so there's all kinds of you know yeah you just you just you're taking your life in your own hands every time and you know we were speaking about it last night too about these no-go zones where where you allow this unfettered immigration with people who have no interest in assimilating when they don't assimilate they gather up like a little cluster and they create their own little country their own little you know own little enclave uh that become these you know like we we describe these no-go zones for the police and this is what you get they have no they have no allegiance to of what it takes to really make it here and they have no appreciation yet they just think they're owed it because they were brought here um you know and then you see some of the pictures coming out of chicago with these with these immigrants and it's snowing in chicago and it's freezing in chicago hey nicaragua sounds pretty good right around now yeah absolutely there's a blue alert in new york city tonight which means dan bongino this is dan bongino says this is not the middle east you're looking at this is new york city the enemy is already here daniel horowitz says just another night in blue america as hamas supporters in new york city call for genocide against the jews in front of the fox building so uh yeah more and more video out out tonight we'll keep an eye on it all right let's do some news though news is brought to you by seven cells our friends over at seven cells dot com use our code lfs 6b 20 off at checkout great stuff for your health for your skin all kinds of good stuff over at seven cells dot com rick got the news what's going on my friends all right well going down to uh dc the the basically the center of all our problems the house gop appears to have the votes to expel george santos at least that's the only thing it seems like they're working on an internal uh political whip count found that nearly 90 house republicans say they plan or are likely to support voting to boot the 90 uh said near certainty that they want to boot george santos from congress that means that it's that they uh the certainty that i don't know they repeat themselves in the stupid article political internal uh the vote would set a new precedent says here the house would expel five members as only expelled five members in its history three due to supporting the confederacy during the civil war the other two were both convicted before their colleagues voted them to voted to boot them out of congress but enough house republicans and democrats have determined that the damning ethics committee report which found sufficient evidence of criminal wrongdoing earlier this month is enough to trigger the removal and many republicans are confident the vote would succeed here is what uh george santos had to say about it himself this is cut number seven in history five members of congress have been expelled all five had suffered convictions in a court all five had due process this expulsion vote simply undermines and underscores the precedent that we've had in this chamber it starts and puts us in a new direction a dangerous one that sets a very dangerous precedent for the future are we to now assume that one is no longer innocent until proven guilty and they are in fact guilty until proven innocent or are we now to simply assume that because somebody doesn't like you they get to throw you out of your job or better more does the constitution bear no consequence where a duly elected member of the house of representatives is elected by the general public but then a couple of politicians decide that they don't like that person these are all matters and questions that can be bought up but i'll leave it at this the process in which the ethics committee engage was incomplete irresponsible and littered with hyperbole and littered with bias opinions the chairman of the committee himself admitted that it wasn't the it wasn't the full extensive process and therefore he couldn't recommend from the committee a punishment or action therefore cheapening the process of the ethics committee cheapening the process that this that this country has expected from this from this chamber look it is not a right to be a member of congress the media will always remind me of that every time i talk to them but it is a privilege a privilege that you work hard for and you get elected to congress as a privilege to represent those who have chosen you madam speaker i think we can all agree that due process matters and that we should all be very concerned about the way that we are conducting this process i ask that all my colleagues in the house consider and understand what this means for the future and to set the resigning and with that all right so you heard it from him there were also two motions earlier to expel santos this week one led by ethics chair michael guess out of missouri out of mississippi i should say and another at a depa uh democratic reps robert garcia out of california and dan goldman what a surprise out of new york the democratic resolution was introduced on a certain rules tuesday that triggers a floor vote uh no later than thursday so uh we could be we could be seeing something happen on this tomorrow so there you have it from uh from george santos an update to his situation and uh real quick if i may mention uh because fran was kind enough to send me this link uh from politico about the gentleman who wrote the movie uh about a con man elected to congress uh called the distinguished gentleman we we talked about that a few weeks ago and this guy actually wrote this article today i think it was released today yeah no uh yesterday 1128 uh by marty caplan which is uh pretty interesting i'll put it up on the uh on my getter feed and x feed and you guys can check it out it's pretty interesting how he talks about you know basically a liar who kind of scammed his way into congress and you know this this movie was written 30 years ago but he said to the day he says he remembers seeing this this uh headline come across about how this guy scammed his way into congress and he's like i wrote a movie called distinguished gentleman about a guy who scammed his way into congress there isn't one republican who's done what santos has done in all of congress and he's going to go bye-bye i have nothing more to say about it yeah i i actually i actually do have some things to say about it and over at the federalist today they had a piece that i um kind of thought you know you see people like matt gates and others saying that they're not going to ask yourself why that is and over at the federalist today they have a piece entitled all the ways that americans benefit from republicans voting to expel george santos well there are none except for democrats and they go on to go through that the republicans there's no they have there's no stomach for them to impeach my orcas there's no stomach for them certainly so far to impeach biden there's no stomach for them to um to uh even bring uh mtgs to the floor on my orcas we can't get any of them together on anything uh and they go through the fact that really by the end of this week when you look back at the republicans what will they have accomplished since taking control of the house they say uh what have they done to improve the lives of the people who have put them there since 2022 he says let's count the ways where is everybody's morals like i don't get it the guy you know and wait till he gets convicted fine but the guy is a slug he's a slug and he's a criminal and there isn't one republican all of congress that pulled the crap that he did where are our morals because it's an extra maga vote we're going to keep them in no we're better than that and there's nobody in congress and the republican side that you can say did what he did using campaign donor money to go pocketbook shopping he's a slug well that that might that might be true but again there there's a way to do this and if we're going to just vote to just get him out before he's been before there's been some kind of anything to say okay yes we're we're in unison that he's been convicted here or tried and convicted that's not saying you know as this article points out santos might very well be a liar he may have cheated as david said cheated campaign donors out of thousands of dollars so he could fund his tacky degenerate he's been charged with serious crimes and he's probably someone i wouldn't let near my kids or borrow a 10 spot but he hasn't been convicted of anything and republicans wait let me finish let me finish and republicans with a 14-seat majority are in no position to be shedding votes what's the rush santos is up for re-election in a year anyways until then why not just hold off until any votes related with any votes that are related to only fans but the republicans wouldn't be able to go on cnn and say they did the right thing if they get rid of them so go ahead david i just don't get it i just don't get it we're we're so much better than that we're better than that and trump's not a criminal and he's wrongly indicted santos is not only a criminal and a heinous liar who said his mother escaped 9 11 and his parents escaped his grandparents escaped the holocaust and all the other garbage he pulled but he stole and he's going to be convicted so wait until he's convicted he does not belong there i'm better than that we're better than that right but the point is wait till he's convicted you do so we we at least agree on that point there's got to be some due process does there not or we just say that's it have to be we've heard enough in the public you're out but that's not the way congress works there's an reprehensible people can't stomach him and you know you just want that extra vote and it's not right it's not i have to stand on i have to stand on higher ground you know it's it's just not right he's got to go and he he very well may go yeah but um this is not this is not a unique position held by just one or two people i have seen many in the republican party say this is not the way to do it that we should not be just if we don't have a stomach to get rid of my orchids or get rid of any of these other people but they have all of the stomach to get rid of uh george santos when there's been no nothing other than what's been in the public right there's been no due process of anything as he said in that speech i mean it's it's not it's not something that just you're seeing by one or two people i understand your position but you're seeing it by more than more than just matt gates and mtg and others the vote's not just predicated on breaking the law the vote's predicated on on morality of him so they could do whatever they want i don't mind waiting but he won't be there long yeah well i think you're right i think you're right i don't think he'll be there long but i don't think you just say we've heard enough and that's it all right more news coming up on a wednesday night so so all right live from studio 6b on a wednesday night slick rick's doing sports david's here he's going to do some news rick delgado's got some more news as well aaron fran holding it down as always we'll try to get back to crazy town in hour two more the emails and messages are coming in about that crazy town i knew it was going to be an all-timer but man oh man i guess it hit everybody like it hit me hysterical but sad obviously all in the same just i mean just mind-bogglingly just my god what is going on um there were some real mumbling segments there that we just i don't think anybody could decipher right when you were when you were putting this together where did you like back up and be like did you try this because i know sometimes you've done the uh the star wars uh you know uh text to it um there's no text i think you could do it would all look like hieroglyphics i think no i mean i mean there was there was just some moments that if you when you watch him when you watch him it's it really is like he's he reads he sees these for the first time when he does them and just the the eyes and the brain connected to the teleprompter just do not work and it just leads to i mean well i mean you saw what it led to today i mean it was so off the rails it was uh yeah like i was when i was reading my first news story i get it yeah yes very well not as not yeah it's terrible all right speaking of that why don't you try to read some more news stories news is brought to you by seven cells seven cells.com what else is going on well i told you that the uh there was a hijacking in dc or a carjacking i should say and it's interesting because that's probably the place that's that's it's really experiencing the most carjackings in the country uh this one coming from abc news as a an fbi special agent not just anybody but an fbi special agent was carjacked in washington dc in broad daylight as an fbi special agent carjacked at gunpoint in dc uh this afternoon according to multiple law enforcement sources the incident occurred near the 1200 block of constitution avenue the agent was driving a blue chevy malibu who'd want to steal that thing which contained the agent's body armor and radio when it was stolen sources said the agent was not harmed sources told abc news and the car was recovered a short time later the dc metropolitan police department is investigating the matter the fbi washington field office and the metropolitan police department carjacking task force they have a carjacking task force in dc it's so bad um are also investigating according to the fbi spokesperson on wednesday evening the fbi then confirmed saying in a statement at this time we can confirm that an fbi employee they're saying was carjacked on the afternoon of november 29th the vehicle was recovered in the fbi washington field office and the police department task force are investigating washington of course as i mentioned has had an unprecedented surge in carjackings surpassing already 900 offenses recorded year to date in recent days carjackings are up more than 100 from last year 77 of carjackings in the district involve guns and we've also seen i think members of congress and people in their staff have been carjacked at gunpoint as well so this is a trend that seems to be uh really really uh doing very well if you're a carjacker in the dc area you're gonna be very busy so there you have it well i mean even if you get caught if you're in the front or out the back you know the plug in the same thing as what's going on in new york city right all of the all of the um talking down and then all of the what the police have gone on under in this country over the last three four years and i mean this is all uh yeah this is the result what you're seeing in all these blue cities this is what you're seeing it's just out of control yeah this is the result we see it on social media with people just walking out of stores stealing uh you know just hundreds and thousands of dollars worth of merchandise and nobody stops them and you know you mentioned the police especially in ny uh new york the nypd is being criticized now after 2500 officers have turned in their badges in the last year um with the workload being the leading factor driving people away from the job it says here in this article uh the department saw over a thousand officers quit before being eligible for their pension think about how bad things are that you're willing to quit before you know being eligible for your pension uh and the democratic mayor announced a hiring freeze to address the other reasons for leaving the uh police benevolent association president uh patrick henry said the workload is a leading factor driving people away from the job if the nypd is going to survive the staffing reductions it cannot just keep squeezing cops for more hours i keep in contact with the guys he said that i was in in the academy and we all have the same notion an officer said to nypd to the new york post i think 95 of us are planning on leaving so not good news if you live in the city of new york and you're wondering uh you know am i going to be safe are the streets going to be safe for me and my family or or even to come visit as we're seeing tonight uh you know due to the uh the palestinian protests uh going on as a uh as we try to ring in christmas so yeah yep didn't say all right

that's what you're seeing in ireland it's just people are fed up with it yeah and two of those three kids that was stabbed one's on life support and the other's on a ventilator uh in ireland right now

And they're about to get a new classmate. There they are, Casey! There's Penn and... Oh, Jude doesn't look so good. Is he bleeding? Over here! Gremly! I'll steer the boat in. You guys hop out. Penn! Thanks for coming to find us. Jude! Jude, can you hear me? You don't have to yell. What happened? It was a screwdriver. In the stomach. What? Mistaken for a robot. Again. Leave the inappropriate jokes to me, Paddington. I'm Casey. What say we tend to that wound of yours? You know first aid? What do you think? I grabbed some supplies on the way out of the lab. Let's take a look at that wound. Okay, that screwdriver did a number on you, huh? Who did this, Penn? Who attacked him? He didn't mean to hurt me. Yee -hoo! Let's clean that up, okay? Gremly, I'm gonna need you to hold this towel and apply pressure. It's probably not going to feel awesome, Jude. Ready? Sorry. So good. Doesn't look good. Penn, you should probably back away from Gremly. Oh, right. It was Kazu. What? My new roommate. The kid was scared. Kid? Wait, are you saying that when coffee breath Kazu got sucked into the portal? Someone's up there. Security, I think. We need to get out of here. We need to get you to a hospital. No time for that. I got this. You got what? Like I said, I have prior field experience. Let's just say I was forced to grow up fast. Are you sure? If you can drive the boat, I can stitch him up. With what? Seat weed? I grabbed a needle and some metallic thread from the lab, too. That sounds pleasant. And he poured in a storm. So, you game, pinch charming? Do I have a choice? Nope. Gremly, I know the water's pretty choppy. Can you drive the boat? Try to keep her steady? I'll do my best. Okay, onto the boat, Jude. Wait. If Penn gets in the boat with Brinley, bye -bye memories. I have an idea. We can tie this to the back and you can drag me on it. Tie what? Wait, is that? Our little surprise. Penn, were you stealing the bassinet when Jude was attacked? He wanted you to have it all in one place, Gremly. The baby, the battery, and the bassinet. So you might finally get the answers you're searching for. We did this for you. Jude? Jude, you still with us? Better hit it, Brinley. Steady as she goes. Don't mess this up, Casey. I feel like we're rowing and rowing and not getting anywhere. I know. Whatever caused that rumbling seems to have agitated the water. Well, the water isn't the only one that's agitated. I get it, but rowing into the waves, it's kind of what we do. Me, my family, Brinley, we go towards the danger. Why? For each other. We did it for my sister, Holiday, and now we're this close to saving Brinley. And finding out what happened to Mila. Hey, do you see that? Out near those rocks. Looks like people. Okay, Brinley, Remy, the patient is out of surgery. You should move him to the rocks. Is he? We'll have to see when he wakes up. But he's not bleeding out, so I'll take that as a win. But listen, Casey. Yeah, yeah. Let's not ruin the moment by you thanking me and me getting uncomfortable and then you get uncomfortable. What's the deal with you and Prince Harry anyway? He's my friend and I want him to, you know, not die. Come on, Remy. Let's go. Be gentle. Hello. Battery, is it? Ah, baby. We meet again. Kind of weird to be here together on this beach with... The bassinet. The bassinet. Funny, but not funny. Exactly. We probably should talk. You know something I don't? About what happened down there? What my mother was trying to do? I mean, kinda. Maybe. Why do I get the feeling I'm not gonna like hearing it? We don't have to do this now. I just stitched up a dude's guts on a moving motorboat. Maybe we just take a minute to sit here, watch the water, and breathe? Yeah, I'd like that. Let me set him down over here on the towel. Okay. Hello. You're awake. Pain confirms it. Glad you're okay, Jude. I'm gonna get you some water. Thank you. Cybot, why don't you keep me company? Why would you want company to... Oh, you want to give them a moment alone. I understand. You're not supposed to say it out loud. I'd prefer to stay with Brinley. It's in my programming, but I'll go into sleep mode. Suit yourself. So, what's new? You stole the bassinet. Borrowed. Penn said you did it for me. Well, you already had the baby in the battery, had to complete the set. Why? Because finding out the mystery of the school and what your mum was doing here, finally getting the answers about why she left, that's worth so much more than a scratch from a silly screwdriver. I didn't know it meant so much to you. It means so much to me because you mean so much to me. Surely you know that by now. I was really scared when I saw you on that beach. I was scared as well, until I saw you pull up. Now, I hope I'm not making you uncomfortable. I suppose it's just... Something about watching blood leak out of your body makes you realise that time isn't something to take for granted. Judas. When I opened my eyes just now and I saw you standing over me, I knew I had to finally be honest to let you know what you've brought to me to this place. Before you showed up, my life was small and safe, and you arrived and with you came drama and excitement and mystery and... Danger? Life. And I don't want to lose that. I don't want to lose you. I believe things happen for a reason. People connect across all logic, across unthinkable obstacles. And I know your heart lies with Cyrus, Bindi, and I'm not trying to change your feelings. I just hope he fully appreciates how special and brilliant and infuriating and beautiful... Please stop talking. But I... Stop! I'm sorry. You're right. I've overstepped and... No, it's just really hard to kiss you when you're talking so much. Oh. Oh. See how much better it is when you just... Shh. Brinley? Cyrus? Hope we're not interrupting. Casey, what are you doing here? You took the words right out of my mouth. She took them out of someone's mouth. Let's talk about the latest episodes with special guests, including cast members and super fans. Shh. It's starting.

"Hey, listeners! If you love the show you're listening to right now, then you have to check out our new series, Mina and Lucy's Guide to Slaying Dracula, based loosely on the classic novel by Bram Stoker. It's funny and exciting and maybe just a little bit creepy -crawly. I'm going to play the first episode for you now, so have a listen and then make sure to search for and follow Mina and Lucy's Guide to Slaying Dracula wherever you listen to this show. If you dare... T 'was the night before Halloween, when all through the haunted house, creatures were stirring, especially a zombie mouse. More blood, Mina? Always, Lucy. Not bad. An excellent 2008 vintage. Yes, a good year. You were right. Adding maple syrup to the fruit punch... I mean, to the blood, definitely makes it thicker. Pairs nicely with the chocolate peanut butter spiders, too. This might be our best graveyard picnic yet, Luce. My favorite pre -Halloween tradition of ours. And tomorrow, we get to show everyone our most gruesome costumes yet. Undead bridezilla. And zombies earlier. Did it just get a lot colder and foggier? Hello, girls. Grandpa, it's you. Hello, Dr. Van Helsing. Did you just get the hearse wash? I did, Lucy. Thank you for noticing. I was being sarcastic. It's covered in mud. Drats. That's what I get for taking the scenic route. How was the graveyard picnic? Great, Grandpa, but we need to get home to finish our costumes. That was the whole point of the sleepover. Hop in. I'll have you home in a jiffy. Ow! Why do you have wooden stakes back here? Oh, you know, for the garden. Now, tell me about these terrifying costumes. Grandpa, what is it? Mina, were you girls alone in the graveyard? I mean, it's 9 36 p .m. Who else would be here other than the dead? Good one, Mina. Right. Right, of course. Are you gonna drive, Dr. Van Helsing? Yes, yes. Off we go into the fog. And once I get you home, it's lights out. Still a school night. I'm way too jazzed to go to bed. Our picnic was 90 % shorter. Yeah, there's no chance I'm gonna fall asleep tonight. Why is the window open? Luce, did you open this? Lucy? Oh no, she's gone. Pick up, pick up. Dang it, she left her phone. Reporter's recorder, entry number 562, Mina's Musings. It's 2 a .m. and... Oh, that means it's Halloween. I'm on the hunt for my best friend, Lucy West. Lucy, Lucy! So far, no trace of her. I tried to put myself in her shoes, but I don't think she's wearing any. Lucy, Lucy! Typically, when she sleepwalks, she doesn't go very far. But I've already biked past school and Lucy's house. No luck. Lucy! I'm heading to the graveyard next, so I can get a good view of the entire town. We'll report back. Reporter's recorder, entry number 562, part 2, Mina's Musings. I made it back to the graveyard, but it's nearly impossible to see anything because a thick fog has taken over Whitby. I've never seen anything like it. But to be fair, I'm never usually awake at this hour. Back to the task at hand. Where is Lucy West? I'm standing on her favorite bench, trying to see if I can spot her. So far, I only see fog. And more fog. Lucy! She's on the beach! And before I sign off, let the record reflect that I was correct. She is not wearing any shoes. She's coming. Lucy? She's coming. The Demeter. Time to wake up. She's coming. Where? What's going on? It's freezing, Luce. Here, take my jacket. Mina, why are we on the beach? It's so foggy. You were sleepwalking again. Ugh, my mom's not gonna be happy. She'll understand. It's the fourth time this month. How did I get all the way to the shore? Usually we find you in the kitchen or in the dog bed. It's getting worse. It'll be okay. How do you know? Did you sleepwalk like this too? You mean after my parents died? Yeah. No, but that was mostly because I couldn't sleep at all. It doesn't get any easier, does it? Losing your dad is still fresh, Luce. It's not that it gets easier, but it changes. How? I mean, I lost my parents on Halloween. And at first, I thought that would ruin it. But in some ways, Halloween is even more special now. Remembering and celebrating them on a holiday that we loved as a family. One that honors and respects death. Mina, it's hard. But I try to remember that they never really are. Mina, do you hear those whispers? I think they're coming from the ocean. I'm trying to be sincere here. We always carry them with us. Mina, it's getting louder. Look out! Tell me that's not an old -timey ship that almost ran us over. It's not an old -timey ship that almost ran us over. Actually, it is. And it's definitely haunted. GCM Shows presents Mina and Luce's Guide to Slaying Dracula. Based loosely on the classic novel by Bram Stoker. Chapter One. The Night Before Halloween. The Demeter? Do you think anyone is on board the ship? Uh, that's not a ship, Mina. That's a shipwreck. We need to check it out. I just woke up on the beach, Mina. I'm not trying to get on a haunted ship. You love haunted stuff. And you're always telling me gnarly injury stories. I also love REM sleep. You'll sleep when you're dead. Hey, there's a ladder next to the plank. Help me reach it. You're taller. Fine. One, two, three. I got it. I made it. Here, I'll drop the ladder down for you. No, thanks. I'm good. What happened to your sense of adventure, Luce? It's back at your house. Warm in bed, waiting for me to return. Oh, come on. Mina, when are you going to give this up? How's never o 'clock. You owe me. Here, grab my hand. Wow, Yes. it's like a pirate ship. Where are the pirates? No captain, no crew. Where did it come from? Reporter's recorder, entry number 562, part three. Mina's musings. Hey, Luce, do you have your night photography camera? She didn't think to bring it with me while I was sleepwalking. Okay, okay. Luce and I just witnessed a ghostly shipwreck of epic proportions on the Whitby shoreline. It's no Titanic, but it's still pretty big. We're walking along the ship's top deck to check for survivors, but there isn't a soul in sight. Hey, maybe these stairs lead below deck. I guarantee there's some creepiness down there. That's the spirit. Literally. Reporters update, the stairs led us to the hull of the ship, which is hardly intact, and is also boring and empty. Let's go. What happened? I tripped over a velvet bag. Huh, that's a full -blown satchel right there. Where is that growl coming from? Um, maybe from the beast with the red glowing eyes? It's a giant wolf. Mina, look out! Go, go, go! Whoa, are you okay? That wolf tried to take off your hand. I'm fine. I think it just wanted this satchel. Go, shut the door! Let's get out of here! Hurry, come on! We gotta go! Let's go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go! I think it's gone. Gone where? I don't know, but I don't hear - What's in my hair? What is that? It's a bat. A bat came through the porthole. Get it out, get it out! Don't panic. There's a bat in my hair. I think I'm allowed to panic a little. Get it out! Okay, okay, it's out. Let's get out of here. Okay, come on, come on. Off the boat, let's go, come on. Did you manage to sleep at all last night, Lucy? Does sleepwalking count? So, are we gonna tell Jonathan about the ship and the, you know, wolf and bat? I'm sure you are. Mina, Lucy, good morning. Your zombie costumes turned out wonderfully. Nice work. We aren't wearing our costumes yet, Mr. Harker. Oh. Uh, Jonathan, time for school. Your perfectly normally dressed friends are here. Thanks, Dad. Bye, Dad. Okay, what's up with you two? You look paler than usual. I, for one, think we look excellent, considering we dodged two wild animals last night on an ancient haunted ship. Okay, one, ghosts aren't real, and two, a ship hasn't docked in Whitby in decades. It's too rocky and dangerous. I wouldn't say it docked, more like a violent crashing on the beach. Sure, and you met Jack Sparrow and Captain Hook on board. They were just dying to visit Whitby, weren't they? I wish I'd gotten some pictures because he's not going to believe it till he sees it. So let's show him. No way, we can't be late for school. It'll take two minutes. Prepare to be amazed and horrified. Uh, am I missing something? Mina, where'd the ship go? I, I don't know. It's not here. Do you think it got swept back out to sea? You saw it. It was way too wrecked for that. Okay, weird prank. Let's go. This is not a prank. We are way more skilled pranksters than this. So I guess this alleged ancient ship grew wings and flew off. Yes, that is my exact hypothesis, Jonathan. Lucy, how does a shipwreck just disappear? Jonathan, I know you make questionable fashion choices, but why is there a big ugly hat over there on your desk? There is a human boy under that hat. Who is it? I don't know, but he's in my seat. Uh, hey, I'm Jonathan. Uh, hello? I think he's asleep. I wish I was asleep. Is he even breathing? Luce, check his pulse. Why me? Your mom's a nurse. Yeah, my mom is. I'm not. Fine, I'll do it. Hello? Hello? Hello? Wow, his skin is freezing. Good morning, class. Why is it so dark in here? Time to let the light in. He's alive. And hissing? Hey, easy dude. Oh, uh, sorry about that. Class, we have a new student with us today. New student? Please give a warm Whitby Middle School welcome to... Oh, didn't anyone tell you Halloween costumes aren't allowed until after school? What costume? Isn't that a farmer costume? The big straw hat? It needs to go, I'm afraid. School policy. You will let me wear my hat at all times and not give me any more grief about it. Uh, because I have a sensitivity to UV light. I will not give you any more grief about wearing your hat even though it is against school policy. Great. Glad we straightened that out. Hi everybody, my name is Vladimir. You can call me... Vlad. Vlad? Vlad? Vlad?

An Analogy (Sorta) on How the Israel Fight Is Different
"I understand. You should be heard. I like to make decisions that would involve the potential intervention of 18 to 20 year old American soldiers could who come back in boxes deliberately and with a whole lot of information and not impulsively. difference The with this fight is this fight is already here. This is not their fight. Yes, it's their fight, but it's not their fight. These same savages motivated by the exact same ideology are coming for us too. I guess the best way I can explain it, maybe this analogy to you will work. Let's say I went to Archbishop Malloy High School in Jamaica, Queens. Great school, loved it. But let's say there was a marauding gang of pirates and bandits out there who had a generational beef with Malloy. Jim, tell me if this analogy works. If it's dumb, say, damn, this is stupid, it's not working. So say in the 50s, this marauding band of pirates had some property confiscated from them and they have Malloy. And you're at Malloy High School and marauding bandits are outside and a bunch of vehicles with weapons and machetes pointed at you, screaming how they're going kill to you and you're yelling out the window, I'm just a freshman, got nothing to do with the place. All right, maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but you see the point I'm trying to make why this fight is different and why you should look at it different for the sake of your own safety, not mine. I worry about my own family. I'm already on this. I'm really sincerely trying to protect you. Any silly comebacks that are juvenile in nature that don't use rationality like, you know, I
A highlight from Time Travel to 1994: A Journey into the Music and Movies of that year.
"Well, here we are, episode 119. And on this episode, myself in the wrecking tube, Mark Smith and Lou Colicchio from the Music Relish Show. We'll be talking about the year 1994, in music and movies I think, it's always interesting. So sit back, relax, break out your flannel shirt, your grungy jeans, and enjoy 1994 music. It was an interesting year, so I think you'll enjoy it. More interesting than what Todd Zauchman thinks it is. He thinks it's nothing, so we'll see. The KLFB studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now, let's talk music, enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends, and welcome to the podcast. You know the name, I'm not gonna say it. We're streaming live right now over Facebook, YouTube, Dlive, Twitch, and X, formerly known as Twitter, and I don't know how many other live platforms. Well, it's gonna be a good show tonight. It's gonna be an interesting show tonight. Yeah, 1994. As I said in the intro, my friend Todd Zauchman just absolutely sent me a text destroying the year 1994. Oh, I just looked up 1994, I don't know what you're gonna talk about, there's a few things and I don't know how you're gonna make a whole show out of it, and good luck with that, because that's how he talks. That's exactly how he talks. I'm just gonna do this, and you know, it's not gonna be a good, blah, blah, blah, blah. That's how he talks. Now, he'll deny that, and you'll never know if that's the way he talks or not. He'll just have to take my word for it. I'm Todd Zauchman, and I don't know about 1994. Well, enough about him. He'll probably be piping in pretty soon, but yeah, 1994, it's a good year. It was a good year for Mark Smith from the Music Rellers Show and Luke Colicchio from the Music Rellers Show. That's for damn sure. It was. What's up, gentlemen? It was a really good year. How you doing? I was just guessing. I figured for 94, listen, we were all younger, so it was better. It was a big year. Hey. So I have to stop right here. Dave Phillips, who's been watching the podcast from pretty much day one, Patty Yossi. Hi, Patty. Good evening. I love you. Dave Phillips, for the last couple of weeks, he's piped in at the end, and he's like, I missed it. Like something's changed. Ah, Tiffany Van Hill. That's my buddy. That's my buddy, Tiffany. She's one of the people that teaches me how to work with horses. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So. And she knows what she's talking about. She's modest, but she's very good at what she does. As are all of my friends and teachers, trainers, mentors from The Herd Foundation in Delray Beach, Florida. It's a nonprofit if you're in the mood to donate today. Look them up. Herd Foundation. Give us some money. Nah, I'm not going like that. No. No, we do. We help veterans. We help veterans, and so it's a good cause. But back to Tiffany. Yep. That's my buddy. Good evening. The Herd Foundation teaches us so much. That's right. That's right. Maybe I'll do a Herd Foundation podcast. You should. Since I'm pretty good at it. You're going to have horses on? What's the horse named after the cookie? Huh? Isn't there a horse named after a cookie? What are some of the horses' names? Oh, Fig Newton. Fig Newton. Yeah. Fig Newton. That's my boy. That's my boy. Good looking horse. Yes. Yes, he is. And we have Stitch. Fig Newton is a retired dressage horse, dancing horse, right? Echoes of Echo and the Bunny Men bring on the dancing horses. We have Stitch. He's a retired racehorse. We have Miss America. She's a retired jumper. Then we have two mini horses. We have Cinnamon. She was a cot horse. You know, pulls the kids around. As would be Sammy. Sammy's the one that looks like Kaja Gugu for you people from the 80s. Looks like Lamal. It looks like Lamal from Kaja Gugu. Gotta do. And he was saved from a kill pen. Yeah. But he's a mini, but he thinks he's a Clydesdale. What do they do with horses after that? Is that the proverbial glue factory? All right. You know what? Right away. Penalty box. Oh. He's raining on my parade. I'm in a good mood. Now I'm all bummed out. Thanks. You feel sad for the drummer now. This is going to be a horrible show now. Leave it to the drummer. Right, Mark? Leave it to the drummer. Get out. It's always the drummer's fault. That's right. See, Tiffany says, that does not exist past our gates, Lou. Because nobody wants to talk. Back to the penalty box. Great start to the show. Lou is just in a mood tonight. I think he's been hitting the whistle. What's going to happen? You're going to come back and it's going to be an empty chair. He's very ornery tonight. Right away. He's very ornery. All right. He's filling his oats, as they would say. Yeah. All right. Lou's back. I'm all right. I'm all right. Okay. Enough about horses, although I could now, at this point, talk about horses for two hours. I love it. I love it. But instead, gentlemen, first of all, how's things on the music relish show? You. Take it away, Lou. Sure. It's fine. It was such an awful show. I thought I said the wrong show for a second there. It's been nothing short of amazing. Don't jump over each other to answer that question. It's always fun. Last week was fun. We got knocked down a bit by Warner Brothers because we played a clip of an America song featuring Dan Peake. Yeah. You're going to watch that. Yeah. We talked through the whole thing, but Spotify is much cooler than YouTube. YouTube sucks like that. YouTube, they have a very strong algorithm. They can kiss my rosy red ass over that. That's right. You tell them, Lou. Fuckers. That's right. Get me kicked off YouTube. That's right. Let me see. John Morris, he was our shift commander. When I met him, I was, I think, a two striper, and he was what they called a butterbot. He was a second lieutenant, I believe. He said, tell them stories from the Nipah Hut in the Philippines. That's a big no. That's a whole other podcast, but they would never make it on the air. Just leave it at that. It's like a chain of Nipah Huts? No. It was a bar slash club called the Nipah Hut. Tell one story. No. They had a giant spaceship that would come down from the top. It's kind of like George Clinton in parliament. At the end of the show, this big spaceship came down from the top. Smoke. Like you said, parliament fucking pelican. Then the thing went open, and everyone would walk up and get up on stage, all those drunk GIs. Like, yeah, I'm going in the spaceship, and you go down these stairs, and you're in a fucking basement. I don't think it was a basement. It's like something from a fucking horror movie. How do you get out? And then somebody goes, this way, this way, go, go, go, go. That's the cleanest story I can tell you. It's the cleanest story I can tell you. Sounds like fun. It was a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun. I got a story for you off the air one of these days. So okay, music relish show's going good. Excellent. I just wanted to say, Lou brought up, he made the show. His segment on bad love songs. That will go down in history as some of the best podcasting ever. Bad love songs? Really bad love songs. The worst love songs of all time, like in rock. It's a deep vein. Is that something, is that like content I could probably like borrow with Perry Mind? Because I'd love to hear that list someday. We voted him off the board. We're no longer a false triumvirate democracy. Wait a minute. We toppled the AI monarchy. There's three of us on this one. Are you two going to overthrow me too? Are you like rebels? None of those stories you're told, no. They're wrecking too. Instead I'll start calling you the Sandinistas. The hostile takeovers. You go on podcasts just to take them over? Like Amiens took over the White House. Really, yeah. Yeah, we could do that. I would love to. Maybe next week we'll do, we'll take a break from the years and we'll do like a, kind of a jambalaya, you know, of stuff. Like throw some music news in there. We'll do some trivia. Maybe I'll come up with some questions for you guys. You could give us that deep vein of worst love songs ever. And it's funny, we noticed that several of them made everyone's list of worst love songs. So it's got to be universally bad. Okay. If everyone said that, that fucking song. Then there were a couple where I said I liked the song, but Lou and Perry were like, what? I'm always, you know, on the one side. Yeah, the one. When it falls into like that kind of metal, metal category, you have a soft spot. Air metal. Metal ballads. Oh my God. How I grew up. Yeah, yeah. As young as Ron Mark, you didn't have to deal with those 70s ones. Yeah, that's true. I did. This fucking guy. Blah. See what I mean? He's setting the bar high. Remember, this is how he talks. I don't think there's anything good about 1994. Blah. So he talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yeah, well, an American Arnold Schwarzenegger. He talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger without the accent. We're going to pass the bar on this one. I am here. Let me see if you can entertain me. 1994. Blah. All right. So let's actually get right into 1994. Yeah. So we'll start on January 19th, 1994. Bryan Adams becomes the first major Western music star to perform in Vietnam since the end of the Vietnam War. Oh, shit. Bryan Adams. Bryan Adams, yeah. Wow. On January 21st to February, as it's spelled, the Big Day Out Festival takes place, again, expanding from those previous years. Blah, blah, blah. Auckland, New Zealand. The festival is headlined by Soundgarden, Ramones, and Bjork. Nice. That's an interesting... Probably each night there were headlines. I would love to see Bjork. Me too. I would never want to see the Ramones. They'll never get back together again. Unless they perform in the Pet Sematary. Yeah. Hey, Lou, can you put him in the green room? No, I'd like that one. That's a good one. Come on, there's a little crossover. Put him in the green room. Put him in the green room. Okay, yeah, yeah. Oh, it's going to be a long show. It's going to be a long one tonight. I feel better about myself now. Got a little redemption? The redemption song? Yes. I got a Buffett story for you. Oh, yeah? His one song was The Pirate Looks at 40. He would segue into Bob Marley's redemption song. Oh, jeez. And it didn't quite... Wait a minute. Buddy, that is the quickest way to get to the penalty box. I'm not playing it, though. I know you're not. You're poking the rhino right now. I'm a guitarist. You're poking the rhino right now. You're not a rhino, you're a nice guy. Come on, we went through that last week. And so, as I've been saying each week, I'm just going to say right now, where's Jack? Okay, and we'll move on from that. Hey, Jack. Hey, Jack, please come back. He didn't listen before, so I don't think he's listening now. Let's see. January 25th, Alice in Chains released their Jar of Flies album, which makes its U .S. chart debut at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming the first ever EP to do that. Right? But they still are always talked about as like number three or number four out of the big four. Big four being? Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden. And Alice in Chains. Alice in Chains is never getting that kind of... Whereas... That first album, the record company made them sound like another band. Yeah. And that's not their fault. They were produced that way. Dirt was a great album. Yes, yes. And Layne Staley was one of the greatest frontmen ever. Just as cool as the other side of the pillow, as they say. Yeah. voice Very unique also. Today we were talking about what we were going to talk about in the show. And he goes, when I saw the videos, he goes, I didn't match his face with the way he looked. Right? He said he was expecting like a grungy, more... No, he was slick. He was slick. In the Man in the Box video, he's got the kind of long... But then he changed it up. He slicked the hair back, he wore the shades, you know. Just turned into a... Suzanne McPhail. Another one of my horse people. She's the one that introduced me to that whole thing. And she said, who's Jack? That's right, I guess. At this point. On January 29th, The Supremes' Mary Wilson is injured when her Jeep hits a freeway median and flips over just outside of LA. Wilson's 14 -year -old son is killed in the accident. What a good day. Ah, this fucking... I saw this and I was like... Dead horses was a bummer. I know, I know. I saw this and I'm like, there's no way around this. February 1st, Green Day releases their breakthrough album, Dookie. Ushering in the mid -1990s punk revival. Dookie eventually achieves diamond certification. Now, I did like them back then. I actually did. I was stationed in Southern California in Riverside. And I decided to get like a side job. You know, I was in the Air Force. But I was like, I want to make a little more money. I want to do something. So I got a job at a record store. Cool. Was it Spencer's or something? Forget the name of it. Oh, Spencer's. They sold all the trinkets, too. No, no, it wasn't Spencer's then. It was something like that. It was a chain. Hot topic. They sold DVDs, too. FYE. No, it wasn't that. I'll remember it. I was working there when Dookie came out and the fucking whole wall was covered with Dookie CDs and they were flying off the shelves. It had a pretty fresh sound. It was fresh then. And coming off the 80s were kind of slick in a lot of ways, except for some of the real heavy alternative. But to hear a song like that on the radio, that was like hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit on mainstream rock radio. Good drummer, too. As a band, whether you like him or not, I think he's really good. Billy Joe Armstrong. Oh, Trey Cool. Trey Cool, yeah. February 7th, Blind Melons lead singer is Shannon Poon forced to leave the American Music Awards ceremony because he is loud and disruptive behavior. Poon is later charged with battery assault, resisting arrest, and destroying a police station telephone. Now, this is the dude that sang, you know, And I don't really care if I sleep all day And he's in the daisy field, so you think he's like this really, like, chill dude. And like, you know, me and the B -girl, man, you know. The B -girl, yes. And the tap -dancing B -girl, and like, I'm just this dude's a fucking lunatic. He was taking substances that made him. Oh, yeah. That was a short career. Was it him that did a duet with Guns N' Roses? What was the video, a song from Guns N' Roses with a video where they're up on like a water tower and they jump into the water or something. I forget what it was called. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they did it with him.
A highlight from Ethereum Spot ETF: Bullish Or Nothingburger?
"Oh, welcome to the morning. Ow! My foot. Welcome to the morning stream, everybody. We're going to discover some crypto news today. It is September 7th. It's 11 .31 a .m. Eastern Standard Time. 8 .30 for the West Coast, folks. They're still waking up. They're still getting sleep out their eyes. Is it sleep or sleet? I remember I used to think it was sleet out your eyes. Sleet. What a weird name, right? I don't know. I never heard sleet out your eyes. Eye boogers? What do you call eye boogers? Eye boogers is what I usually say. Chat, let us know. Guys, make sure you're hitting that like today. We got some huge news with Van Eck talking about the ETH ETF, also Ripple Labs. We got Ripple Labs CTO revealing some secret XRP news, but we're going to try to guess because someone put out a list of like, hey, I bet you're going to do four or five of these things. He said, we're definitely doing two of them. So we're going to look at that list and maybe try to make some XRP predictions. It'll be pretty cool. We got the China ban, some Cardano news, and Reddit NFL stuff. Where are the NFL fans at? What's your team, Tim? I don't have an NFL team. I love the NFL. I grew up in Tampa, so you could maybe say the Bucks, but I don't really like the Bucks either. I don't know. I always have a team I choose. Right now, I really like more recent years what Detroit is doing. So I'm kind of a lion's fan. What is it? Barry Sanders? I was a Barry Sanders fan. Barry Sanders is a goat. I was but no, I love the coach at Detroit right now. If you guys like Detroit Lions, let him know in chat. Tim, do you know how much a pirate pays to get his ear pierced? I feel like that's an obvious answer that it's not coming to the tip of my brain right now. So go ahead and tell me the punchline. It's a buccaneer. Oh my God. There we go. That's good one. You hated it, didn't you? I'm sorry. All right, let's just get to the crypto news, folks. All right, CoinGecko, what is going on, everybody? We are down a little bit, but not too much. Let's hit that refresh. I lied. We're up, baby. We're moving up. We're up 0 .8%. It looks like market cap still largely coming in at 1 .08 trillion. 24 -hour volume is down slightly, $31 billion. Bitcoin dominance not really moved that much. Looks like it's actually down 0 .2 % and gas coming in at 27 Gwei. All right, let's look at the markets. We have Bitcoin up half of 1 % and Ethereum up only 0 .3%. Really not exciting news off that ETF, so the markets haven't reacted that strongly. BNB up 0 .4%, XRP up 0 .4%. Keep scrolling though, we don't really see too much stuff. I mean, just to get into the single digits, you got to get out of the top 10, go all the way down to Tron. Tron is up 1 .6. Very, very boring. So let's look at the exciting charts here. This is the biggest gainers and the biggest losers of the day. When you say biggest loser of the day, don't say DZ or don't say DZ's portfolio, although it might be, we're going to find out. The biggest gainer is Render. Render is up 6%. Stellar. Stellar was down and beaten down hard yesterday. I thought Stellar was down earlier today, so it's made a little turn out. Yeah, let's click on that chart. We'll see once we click on that seven -day, you can kind of see where we went from a negative into positive. Yeah, so you can see right there at one point, this is about 24 hours ago right around here. So yeah, at one point, yeah, it was just down and down heavy, but now since we kind of capitulated from that bottom, it's looking a little bit better. It is up, let's click on it one more time, was it 4 .2%, Iota up 4 .1%, Casper continuing to leave the station without DZ on board. Casper, please turn around, hit the brakes, do a U -turn, crash into a ditch, do something, let me pump up a bag, let me fill up a bag of Casper. We have Maker up 3 .4%, Algorand up 2 .6%, so I know AJ's excited about that one. Let's look at the biggest losers, though, the biggest losers of the day in the top 100 crypto market cap here. We have number one, not too much, folks, it's only down 1 .5%, that is nothing for crypto, especially with a gaming slash gambling token like RollBit, followed by Shiba Inu down 0 .7%. But then the graph, the graph is, you know, firmly under a dime, now coming in at $0 .08. I think, you know, it touched around a nickel, even a little bit lower at one point, let's just see, not even that long ago. Get out of here, yeah, yeah, yeah, cookies, something, yeah, whatever, I like them. All right, let's click the one year. Yeah, we got close to a nickel, I think it went below a nickel on some exchanges. But when you look at the 30 -day, it's looking down, but maybe find a little bit of support at this 8 .5%, so it looks like it touched it right there, touched it right there, and still kind of hanging out above it. Do you like the graph? No, I mean, I don't own any of it, so. How do you feel about the graph of the graph right here? I prefer charts to graphs for a trading view, but, you know, it's not worthless to see the charts or the graphs on, was that Core Market Cap or was that Gecko? Oh, this is Gecko. Yeah, they're not worthless, I just, it's easier to see a chart, so. Okay, okay, so you're more of a chart guy, not a graph guy, so you like Magellan, not, I don't know, I don't know my, I don't know where you're going with that one, yeah. I don't know, some sort of worldwide maritime chart person, I mean, Drew, Drew probably knows. Oh, God, they weren't escaping me. Can you look at the stars and know where you're going? Absolutely, that's what they did for thousands of years. It was like the North Star, that's about the extent of my knowledge. Listen, the fact that, do you just know that people were constantly going back and forth from Europe to different places in the United States in a time where all they had was the stars and they kept going at the same place over and over again, those stars worked pretty good. All right, all right, well, you know who's the star of 2021? Some say it was Ethereum. Ethereum, you know, blew up, had huge, huge gains, outsized relative to Bitcoin, but then when it fell, also fell outsized relative to Bitcoin. Well, it looks like ETH is trying to get another ETF on the board here. You know, first, got a lot of companies that started with Bitcoin, and now we have VanEck officially starting the in the coming days. The race for the spot ETF has officially begun after the Chicago board options exchange will ultimately start the clock for an SEC decision. Let's see, they filed these to be listed on CBOE's BZX exchange as the Chicago board options exchange and a pair of tweets. Looks like as opposed to the previously submitted filings, this finally means that the countdown is now in motion. The race is on saying, guys, this is a long, long deadline from now. We're not talking about next month. We're not talking about next week. Talking about March of next year. 3 -2 -3, 3 -2 -3 -2 -4. No, no, 5 -2 -3 -2 -4 there. Keep scrolling, keep scrolling. ARK Invest and 21Shares teamed up to file the S1 of the SEC on the 6th, although VanEck's filing dates back to July of 2021. They were trying to do this years and years ago, but now maybe the SEC might take it seriously. On the 17th, SEC reportedly singled its intention to Ethereum approve futures products while several firms including Grayscale and BlackRock are currently fighting to get the Spot Bitcoin. So we have ETH futures, Spot Bitcoin, and now we have Spot ETF in the process right now. Alright, so what is going to happen though? Some people are saying approval is inevitable. You know what's also inevitable? The fact that you're going to hit the like button in the next three seconds. Hurry, hurry, I'm starting to count down three. You only have two seconds to move the mouse, grab it one. You feel that? Oh my God, it's just a huge wave of relief and awesomeness just crashed over your body. Alright, let's talk about this approval though. Approval is inevitable. SEC Insider primes crypto market for a $15 trillion Bitcoin, Ethereum, and XRP price ETF game changer. These major cryptocurrencies could be headed into one of their biggest ever months. One crypto watcher has said it's going to be crazy. He said it's going to be like a movie, man. Last night was a movie. Now former SEC chair Jay Clayton has said eventual approval of a Spot ETF is inevitable following the SEC punting a decision on the ETF filings from the managers who looked after a combined $15 trillion until October. Looks like he's maybe looking at the fact that they punted the ball. They didn't go for it on fourth down. That's for you, football fan. Maybe because they didn't say no, and they said, I'm going to kick the can down the road. Instead of saying no, he's saying a yes is inevitable. But the signaling of the kicking of the can down the road. But it's not all roses. It's not all balloons and clown faces for Ethereum. There was a hack in this summer reporting. This is the largest fishing hack in history for Ethereum at least. It looks like this crypto whale lost $24 million in staked Ethereum to a fishing attack. Looks like they were transferred into the fully automatic exchange fixed float. Never heard of it. Here we have Joaquin, Joaquin dancing down the stairs. Cryptocurrency whale has fallen victim to a massive fishing attack, losing millions in staked Ether on the liquid staking provider Rocket Pool.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 09/05/23
"We are representing a second whistleblower from the FBI, Marcus Allen. Due to whistleblower retaliation by the FBI, I've been suspended without pay for over a year. Because of you, ACLJ donors, you get the best attorneys in the world. Yes, I am a pirate, 200 years too late. The cannons dump thunder, there's nothing to plug. Before Margaritaville, before cheeseburgers in paradise. Here are four or five Jimmy Buffett albums before the guy even became big. This is from A1A, a reference to the coastal Florida highway, and a pirate looks at 40. This came out when Mike Gallagher was walking around being 14 years old. But world traveler Mike is back and it's so good to see you. How are you doing? How was the trip? How are things? It was great. It's so great to be back. First of all, quick note about Jimmy Buffett. I love how you're a Jimmy Buffett purist. I just love that. Everybody else is playing cheeseburger in paradise and you're like, no, no, no. But he's way deeper and broader than that. And you're so right. You're so right. That guy brought so much joy to so many people over the years. What a life, what a legacy, and his music will live on. But it is absolutely wonderful to be back, to hear your voice and to see your smiling face again. We had a great trip to London. I come back. I mean, but I, you listen, I cannot disconnect and I've got like 20 shows in my head. I'm doing shows in the London tube. I'm practicing what I'm going to say because it dawned on me. I am needed right now. I am on the way. I mean, I woke up this morning. I turned on the radio. I heard somebody say there's no way Trump can win. He just can't win. He cannot win. And I'm thinking, boy, I got, I got to get back to work. I mean, I don't know. You're sitting here doing show material on the tube. I can just imagine somebody just trying to get to work there in London. Oh, is that guy talking about? He keeps going on about Trump and Biden. I don't even know what's going on. Who is he? Who is he? Only thing missing was the tinfoil, you know, the tinfoil on my head. But there's so much craziness going on and people making assertions. And you've been so good about how the cautiousness of, we don't know. We got to let the voters start voting. Please, Iowa, get here already. You know, South Carolina, get here already. Let's see what this, how this, how things are going to, are going to unfold. But now they're trotting out the 14th amendment for Trump. Yes. Let's cover this for everybody, because if you can't erode his poll numbers, if you can't prosecute him out into the back 40 and make him go away, you try to take steps to keep him off the ballot. There is nothing they won't try. There is nothing. I mean, and I don't even want to go here and stop me if you think it's a bad idea to even bring this up, but people are now suggesting openly there's one, there's going to be only one thing left for them to do to this guy. And I don't want to say it on the air. I have a responsibility. You have a responsibility, but we also reflect what people are talking about. And it's being said on social media. I mean, I don't even want to use the word. Well, you know, who started this. If you're going where I think you're going, that would be Tucker. Tucker in an amazing couple of segments with Adam Corolla, I believe. Yep. I mean, I'll, I'll carry the, I'll do the heavy lifting if you want to. The only thing left is to assassinate him. I hate to even say those.
A highlight from Bitcoin Book Softwar BANNED! National Strategic Significance of BTC (Most Efficient Weapon? )
"Major Jason P. Lowry of the United States Space Force wrote this extremely dense book called Softwar, a novel theory on power projection and the national strategic significance of Bitcoin. And in an interview with Robert B. Love a couple months ago, Lowry said he wrote the book as a step -by -step guide for politicians, regulators, or anyone on how to win the argument that Bitcoin is a national security issue that needs to be addressed by the United States yesterday. He argues that this new technology is the next newt, and the fastest way to bypass all of the regulatory bureaucratic BS that is causing the U .S. to fall behind as the global and technological superpower in the world is to take the issue out of the hands of the likes of Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, SEC Chair Gary Gensler, who do not understand warfare by using this book to prove Bitcoin is a national security issue and catapulting it to the hands of the Department of Defense. Is Major Lowry onto something? Are other global powers already privy to this concept? Is that why Russia and China have recently pivoted and have become top Bitcoin hashers? Well, it's possible, because this book was printed and available to anyone around the world in February of 2023, and as of a few weeks ago, the Pentagon told Lowry to remove it from publication. Here's a tweet from Lowry on July 27th about the situation. For those asking what's going on with me, I was ordered to take Safwar down and asked to stop talking about the subject publicly. Doesn't appear on MIT's library either. Can't talk details, but things are good and I'm working hard behind the scenes. Appreciate the kind words. As some of you may know, I ordered the book when it first came out, and I've got a printed copy. So in this video, we are going to break down Lowry's thesis together about the national strategic significance of Bitcoin. So there are a few concepts we need to explore together to help us fully grasp the gravity of the theory. So let's start with physical security of scarce resources. Here on Earth, everything is in constant competition for scarce resources like food, territory, energy, shelter, a means to reproduce like a mate and similar, and every single thing alive in the world today succeeded at living and reproducing by using physical force or imposing a physical cost on predators, competitors, and any other living organism that was competing against them for food, territory, the ability to reproduce, etc. And to describe what imposing physical cost means, Lowry uses an equation where he explores the ROI or return on investment of attacking something and considers the ratio of the potential benefits or rewards from attacking something compared to the potential costs or downsides of attacking something. For example, what are the potential benefits versus costs of trying to harvest the scarce resource of honey from a beehive? Well, over time, bees have optimized themselves to reduce their vulnerability to attacks and to secure their food resources by imposing physical force on attackers by swarming and stinging them. And we can also imagine how this plays out across all of nature when considering most animals at the top of the food chain have pointy teeth, sharp talons, big claws, lots of muscles, strong bones, etc. All attributes that increase their ability to increase the costs or downsides of something that may try to attack it and increase their ability to secure scarce resources like food, territory, etc. Nice. Now with humans, the same concepts apply but play out in multiple domains in civilization due to our complexity, intelligence, psychology, physiology, and a myriad of factors. In those domains where we impose physical force against each other, on a global scale are land, water, air, outer space, and now, as Lowry points out, in his thesis, a new domain has emerged called cyberspace. So in each of these domains, to decrease our chances of being attacked, there must be a consequence. Otherwise, we wouldn't be able to maintain control and security over and access to valuable resources essential for survival like land, food, energy, natural resources, ports, etc. And as unfortunate as it may seem, warfare is the last resort to secure our resources if laws, policies, treaties, or agreements break down between different countries, civilizations, or similar. And we see it every day in nature. Lions don't negotiate terms with the gazelles when they are hungry, they just eat them. Snakes don't refer to contracts or similar between their prey, they just eat them. If a pack of wolves controls some territory and then another pack of wolves shows up, they don't have a civil conversation about where boundaries are or about sharing resources. They bark, growl, snarl, and ultimately, if it comes down to it, engage in warfare through physical force to try to secure their territory. So humans experience these same situations if we spend time developing irrigation and farmland, the only way we can secure it is by imposing a cost of attacking it with physical force. Throughout time, that has looked like spears, swords, arrows, and eventually guns and so forth. So the function of warfare is physical security over scarce resources to establish pecking order, settle disputes, and similar. Resources in life are scarce, so life has to fight for the limited resources to survive. However, over time, the form of warfare has changed. In modern society, we outsource warfare or physical security of force to the military, police forces, and similar. So while most of us do not participate in applying physical force to secure resources, war still wages on every day around the world. In the domain of land, we have armies that impose physical force on any attackers, or the armies impose physical force to try to secure land we may not currently control, depending on the cost and benefit ratio of attacking a particular area. In the domain of water, we have the navy that imposes a high cost of physical force on attackers like pirates to ensure our ports are secure and we can successfully trade across the ocean with other countries. In the domain of air, we have the air force that ensures we have access to this domain and that it is secure from potential attackers by guaranteeing a very high cost of attacking it with jets, missiles, drones, etc. In the more recent domain of space, we now have a space force that ensures we have access to space and can secure our resources by the threat of imposing physical force on anyone who tries to deny our access or threatens our resources. So at the end of the day, handshakes, policies, agreements, etc. are not enough to ensure we have freedom of access to our land, water, air, and space because, as we've discussed, there needs to be physical cost and a threat of physical force to protect ourselves from attackers. This is how civilization works and even though warfare sucks, a key benefit to warfare is it ensures decentralization of control over resources where no one centralized person, entity, country, or government has control over all of the land on earth, all of the rivers, seas, and oceans on earth, over all of the air space and outer space, and when or if a Hitler or similar tries to gain more power over any domain like land, it becomes extremely expensive and energy and resource intensive for them. Warfare is also a way to escape oppression and that if something starts to oppress you, warfare is how you prevent and escape from it. Cool. Now what happens when civilizations expand its footprint into the new emerging 5th domain of cyberspace? And what role does bitcoin play as potentially the most efficient weapon ever built that doesn't kill or physically harm anything? Hello, I'm Crypto Casey and in this video we are going to explore major Jason P. Lowry's theory on the strategic significance of bitcoin. Let's hit it.

"pirates" Discussed on The Lead
"A two strike butts. And that's when the pirates are at their best when they are disruptors on the base pads. And you are just seeing the beginning of what Barack and Shawn have in mind for this pirates team. And that's really been the hallmark of this pirate club. It's enabled them to squeak out some close wins, and it's also gotten in the head of these opponents. These opposing pictures, they've been able to rattle a lot of teams because once they get on first base, that's where the fun begins. The pirates for the first national league team to get to 20 wins. They're already a third of the way to their win total from the last two seasons. So they have definitely been a feel good story as a team. And they've had one of the individual feel good stories of the season with a guy who finally got his shot for the team this year, drew Maggie. Can you tell us a little bit about his story? Just a made for Hollywood movie type of story, really. A guy who spent 13 years in the minor leagues, who said he wanted to quit every year, but didn't. And then finally gets the call this year. And someone that exemplifies grit. A choice that continue to fight for what he wants in life. And a lot of that is having the right perspective. And so we're going to get an opportunity to Robert. And I guess into a game doesn't get a hit, people are wondering if that's it for him. But then they go up big and they take out most of their regulars. Here comes drew. And what could be could be his last ever major
Pirates lose 6th straight, Belt 2-run double lifts Blue Jays
"6 Blue Jays had a two hit game as Toronto roughed up the pirates 8 two, Brandon Belt drove in a pair of runs as part of a four run first inning for the Jays. Kevin kier Meyer also played an apparent Kevin biggio head two hits, impressive for a player that's been in and out of the lineup for manager John Schneider. I know it's tough for players when they're not in their consistently. And when you are in there, you have to make kind of the overall contribution like cabinet today. Jose barrios allowed two runs over 6 and a third inning striking out 7 for Toronto. Now 20 and 14. Jack zawinski Homer for the NL central leading pirates, which have lost 6 straight. Josh rowntree Pittsburgh.
Eflin goes 7 masterful innings, Rays sweep Pirates
"Zac eflin earned his fourth win in the Tampa Bay Rays, used three solo homers to hold on to defeat the Pittsburgh pirates three to two. Tampa Bay got solo shots from Taylor walls in the second, Randy rose arena in the fourth and yandy Diaz in the 8th. Wall says he worked all off season to improve his power on offense and he's seeing it pay off. Days I feel good, I can come up empty and days I feel terrible. I could have good at bats and still help the team win. Ethylene pitched 7 shutout innings giving up just three hits and striking out ten. With the wind Tampa Bay improves to a major league best 20 games over 500 on the season while Pittsburgh season long losing streak grows to four straight games. Steve Carney, St. Petersburg.
McClanahan improves to 6-0 as Rays beat Pirates 8-1
"Shane mcclanahan and the rays continued to roll in an 8 one thumping of the pirates. Mcclanahan is 6 and zero with a two O three ERA after limiting the bucks to a run in 5 hits while striking out 9 over 6 innings. I think being consistent is the ultimate compliment for me, you know, you kind of want to know what to expect every single time and said this for years, my only goal is to help this team win a lot of ball games and if that's what consistency means and I'm okay with that. Josh Lowe would wander Franco Homer does Tampa Bay improved to 25 and 6 losing pitcher Mitch Keller was reached for just one earned run in 5 hits with 8 K's over 5 innings. I'm Dave ferry.
Ramirez, Rays beat Pirates 4-1 in matchup of top two teams
"Harold Ramirez homered and drove in a pair in the Tampa Bay Rays used 7 pitchers to hold Pittsburgh to just a single run in a four one victory over the pirates. Ramirez finished with an RBI single in the fourth that got the raise on the board and a solo Homer in the 6th that capped the scoring both off pirates starter Rwandan Contreras. Colin Boucher earned the win after relieving Josh Fleming, who left in the 5th after being hit by a line drive. Tampa Bay is now won 24 of its first 30 games to start this season.

Nuggets take Suns, NFL draft
"Or AP sports I'm get cool and emphatic start to the Western Conference semifinals in Denver correspondent Bruce Morton reports. The nuggets thumped Phoenix one 25 one O 7. Denver gained separation in the second quarter led 68 51 at the break and kept its distance. The nuggets Jamal Murray was game high with 34 points.

Also in the east, the rangers forced a game 7 with a 5 two win over the Devils in the west, the oilers eliminated the kings with a 5 four game 6 win. Day three of the NFL Draft, the LA rams drafted two time national title winning Georgia quarterback stetson Bennett in the fourth round.

"pirates" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Burn. I was at the 18 inning Mariners Astros game. What is that not my answer? I mean like the triple play one is fine. That ended up being my strongest contribution. If we're being candid, that and the power outage thing. Like that was where I really shown in that kind of conversation. The rest of it replacement level at best. But in terms of the thing, was really like wild and I believe in some respects unprecedented. I was there. I said to all of them in the smoke. You wrote about it. You know, I wrote about it. I wrote a thing. I wrote, that might have been one of the only things I wrote last year that wasn't like here are playoff odds, and here's our step predictions. So I'm disappointed in myself. And I want to own my mistake, which is that. And then I was messaged by, I think we can say friend of this show, Zach, Buchanan, who writes for the athletic. And I hope will not feel as if I am betraying a confidence, but he listens to our episode. And he could not believe that not a one of us answered with Randy Johnson hitting the bird. Yeah. Yep, that's a great one. Not for the bird to be clear. Pretty bad day for the bird. I hope that, you know, it was so it was literally so fast that I hoped I don't think the birds suffered. I got the bird felt anything or was even aware that it was about to become a blooper slash highlight for the ages. Yeah. So, but really a remarkable moment. And one that has been remarked upon. So Zach, you are right. We are all bums for not thinking of that. But I feel the most embarrassed that I did not remember my own experience from not even a year ago. So here I am hat in hand to say, I messed up, but I hope that everyone else had as much fun watching that game as I did, and can forgive me for my oversight. It was a stressful time. It was a busy day. It was a wild experience and it's one that I'd like to say I'd never forget except for the part where I literally did that. Right. Yeah. Well, we were trying to think of unprecedented things that we had seen in games that had happened in games. And I guess you could say that other birds have been hit by other kinds of throws, but not quite in that way and not quite captured on camera in a snuff film the way that that poor bird was. Is that the only I'm going to ask a question and I don't want to a single email response about it. This is me asking it idly you don't have to. I listened to the you're wrong about about snuff films and in that episode they wondered like, does this thing exist? And now I'm realizing that even though that episode was years ago and one of the co hosts has moved on, I should message them and say, here is one, but it sports, and that's not something they're really into, so that's why they probably didn't know. All right, so we've got a couple previews for you today. As you mentioned, we will be starting with the Astros in Chandler Rome of the Houston chronicle. I teased on an earlier episode, I think that we would be previewing the rays today. We had a guest scheduling rearrangement, so we will get to the race. Next time. So the Astros fangraphs play off ads and projected wind total 89.7 division odds of 57% and play off odds of 82%. So even though they're returning much of their roster and still have high expectations, you know, maybe perhaps a little more competition at least in the division this year, perhaps some vulnerabilities there, still a very strong team. And then after the Astros, we will be talking to Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh post gazette about the Pittsburgh pirates projected for 73.7 wins and a 2% chance to win the central with a 4.5% chance to make the playoffs. So a little bit of a disparity there. We're getting into the end stages of the preview series here where there is a wide gap between our good team and bad team, so to speak for the day. So those are our previews and I'll do the same little trivia exercise that I started last time. Same three questions, which I will answer at the end of the episode. Tell me which team has the better head to head record all time. Astros or pirates in their head to head match ups and then give me the all time highest war getting better and pitcher who have played for the Astros and the pirates at any point in their career, so anyone who has played for both of those teams at some point, highest war getting better and pitcher. And then the first pitcher and batter to play for both teams

"<Speech_Male> And this <Speech_Male> is because, well, <Speech_Male> a, they were pirating <Speech_Male> everywhere. But <Speech_Male> a few weeks <Speech_Male> before in August <Speech_Male> of that year, <Speech_Male> they <Speech_Male> stole a ship <Speech_Male> named the William <Speech_Male> and really sort of <Speech_Male> went to town, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> basically through <Speech_Male> October. <Speech_Male> So they had a nice <Speech_Male> run <Speech_Male> through the fall <Speech_Male> and then in late October <Speech_Male> 1720, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> they were <Speech_Male> entertaining <Speech_Male> some <Speech_Male> gentlemen, not just the <Speech_Male> ladies, like the whole crew. I <Speech_Male> think they were what like <Speech_Male> 5 or 6 of them <Speech_Male> total? I saw <Speech_Male> a dozen. <Speech_Male> Okay, let's say it does and <Speech_Male> then. <Speech_Male> And they were <Speech_Male> entertaining some guys. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Mariners <Speech_Male> from the port royal <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> apparently got a little <Speech_Male> out of hand, turned <Speech_Male> into a big fight. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> drew some attention <Speech_Male> and a pirate <Speech_Male> hunter named Jonathan <Speech_Male> Barnett snagged <Speech_Male> them into custody. <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> Yep. <Speech_Male> And that <Speech_Male> was it. They'd actually <Speech_Male> slipped if you <Speech_Male> read the pirate <Speech_Male> history. <Speech_Male> They <Speech_Male> slipped through the hands of <Speech_Male> other pirate hunters a <Speech_Male> few times in some really <Speech_Male> amazing, <Speech_Male> daring <Speech_Male> dues. <Speech_Male> If they're true, even if <Speech_Male> they're not true, it's still <Speech_Male> worth reading. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Yes, exactly, <Speech_Male> chuck. <Speech_Male> Thank you, William sapphire. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> This time <Speech_Male> though they were caught and they <Speech_Male> were tried in Spanish <Speech_Male> town, Jamaica, <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> apparently <Speech_Male> every single person <Speech_Male> ended up <Speech_Male> being found guilty. <Speech_Male> They had a couple <Speech_Male> of different trials. <Speech_Male> A couple of guys really <Speech_Male> were abducted. <Speech_Male> They <Speech_Male> were French <Speech_Male> hunters on an island <Speech_Male> and they were abducted <Speech_Male> and forced <Speech_Male> into this and they were still <Speech_Male> tried <Speech_Male> and convicted. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> every single male crewman <Speech_Male> was <SpeakerChange> hanged. <Silence> <Speech_Male> Right, but there is a <Speech_Male> good final twist. <Speech_Male> Another <Speech_Male> TV <Speech_Male> scene moment <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> in court <Speech_Male> as <Speech_Male> they were being, <Speech_Male> I guess, <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> read their verdict. <Speech_Male> Marion <Speech_Male> and looked at each other <Speech_Male> and winked and <Speech_Male> at the same time <Speech_Male> said <Speech_Male> through their arms up <Speech_Male> and said, we're pregnant. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> apparently that was the deal. <Speech_Male> They were not, <Speech_Male> it was called pleading <Speech_Male> the belly, which <Speech_Male> will get you out <Speech_Male> of <Speech_Male> being put to death at least <Speech_Male> and being hanged. <Speech_Male> But they were <Speech_Male> not making it up. They <Speech_Male> were <Speech_Male> inspected. <Speech_Male> I guess I hope <Speech_Male> by a doctor. <Speech_Male> And found <Speech_Male> to be really pregnant. <Speech_Male> And so they <Speech_Male> avoided the gallows. <Speech_Male> Yeah. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> They were probably in their <Speech_Male> second trimester <Speech_Male> later historian <Speech_Male> said, <Speech_Male> Mary Reed <Speech_Male> died <Speech_Male> fairly shortly <Speech_Male> after the following April. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And some historians have <Speech_Male> said that probably <Speech_Male> coincides with <Speech_Male> childbirth, so she might have <Speech_Male> died in childbirth. <Speech_Male> That's what it sounds like. <Speech_Male> Her grave is <Speech_Male> in saint Catherine Jamaica, <Speech_Male> you can go visit <Speech_Male> it, and <Speech_Male> Bonnie, <Speech_Male> though, she <Speech_Male> became more <Speech_Male> obscure. <Speech_Male> According to <Speech_Male> the history, captain <Speech_Male> Johnson's history, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> she was <Speech_Male> let go <Speech_Male> at some point, <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> we don't know where she <Speech_Male> went, but <Speech_Male> only this we know <Speech_Male> that she was not <Speech_Male> executed. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> What <SpeakerChange> a great ending. <Speech_Male> Yeah. I <Speech_Male> also saw that <Speech_Male> after that, some people <Speech_Male> suppose that she went <Speech_Male> back to Charleston, <Speech_Male> married another man, <Speech_Male> had 8 kids, <Silence> <Speech_Male> and it would <Speech_Male> be possible then that <Speech_Male> there are descendants of <Speech_Male> ambani out there <Speech_Male> running around. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> On the isle of <Speech_Music_Male> palms, perhaps, <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> probably. <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> Maybe they'll <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> find my tooth. <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> That's some booty <Speech_Music_Male> right there.

"And there's stuff in the Britannica encyclopedia entries that has been proven to have been made up by novelists as late as the 1960s, and it's being touted as fact. And it's not just Britannica, the Wikipedia, there's a ton of reputable sources that have just kind of fallen for these inaccuracies that have been added as flourishes over the years. I wonder if Mark Mancini read the book and said, hey, wait a minute. I think everywhere it's italicized. It's total BS. There's a lot of italics in there too. It's a dead giveaway. Yeah. Yeah, so the book itself is written by a guy named captain Charles Johnson, who did not exist that's a pen name. And I've seen it attributed typically to Daniel defoe, author of Robinson Crusoe. And then alternatively, there was a publisher named Nathaniel missed, and they think that it was probably one of those two guys who wrote it. Yeah, apparently defoe worked for miss. So I think it's just one of those things where they're professors and people in the literature community that like to pull up their sleeves and battle it out on that. Sure. When the rest of us don't really care, but the point is, the general history or a general history of pirates with the Y has some stuff that we should go over. Either way, I agree. And Bonnie, should we take a break first? Yeah, we'll take a break and we'll come back and introduce the world to Anne bonny and Mary read. All right, what a great cliffhanger.

"And welcome to the short stuff I'm Josh, and there's chuck and Jerry's here too, and this is short stuff. Ahoy. Which is pretty appropriate, chuck. Even though you've always say it. Not always. Most of the time, it's not very appropriate. This time it fits very well. That's right, because we're talking about pirates with a why. Pirates with the why and also pirates with two X chromosomes. That's right. Have you ever seen the TV show our flag means death? I did. I watched the first few and I just kind of fell out of it. But yeah, it's a very, very cute show. Yeah, okay. Did you watch have you watched all of them? Yeah, yeah. I like it a lot. But it kind of got me wondering because a big, you know, it's kind of known as the most queer positive show on television and to show about pirates, so you might, if you haven't seen it, you might think, well, that's odd. But on the show, there is a female character who is masquerading as a man pirate. And then there are, I don't want to spoil anything, but there's also a budding relationship of the same sex. Which is a very kind of fun reveal in the show. And I was just kind of wondering if that's all made up for the show. And it turns out it looks like piracy and pirate ships were kind of a haven sometimes for gay women or now what we probably would know as trans people because you could hide out and I think as long as you did your work, there wasn't a lot of well, I mean, who knows how they were really treated, but it seemed to be like a place that people could go in the queer community in the whatever 1600s. And I don't think chuck, you had to necessarily just identify as a different gender. You were if you were a woman and you were out in the high seas, you were probably dressing like a man one way or another. Largely because ships, it was considered bad luck to have a woman on a ship. But the two women that were going to talk about Anne bonny and Mary read, they were such BAs as pirates with a Y or an I, it doesn't matter. That they were openly women who did still dress as men, but everyone on their ship knew they were women, and they were reputed to have been

It's entirely possible that pirates would have had more limbs removed and is lost than normal people plainly. Let's address the big question. Did pirates talk like pirates. If real pirates appeared today would they fit in well on talk like a pirate day. The real reason why we think pirates talk like pirates can be traced entirely to a single person robert newton. Robert newton was a british actor from the twentieth through the fifties who starred in the nineteen fifty. Walt disney film treasure island playing the role of long john. Silver newton grew up in dorset england and went to university in cornwall. He basically took a west country. English accent turn it up to eleven in editor zone piracy stuff to it to make it his own. He reprised the role in nineteen fifty four movie long john silver and then in tv series by the same name. His performance was so iconic that he pretty much set the bar for what being pirate was the area of england that newton got the accent from was well represented among seafarers and there might have been some pirates at sort of talk like that but in reality there would have been a wide variety of accents. International talk like a pirate day was established in one thousand nine ninety-five five by john. Old chum bucket. Bauer and mark cap and sloppy. Summers was just intended as a joke and it didn't get very far until two thousand two when it was adopted by newspaper columnists dave berry robert newton of long john. Silver fame has been dubbed the patron saint of international talk like a pirate day in response to the day december fifth was dubbed international ninja day to honour ninjas which are the mortal enemies of pirates since then international. Talk like a pirate day has grown into a thing big enough. I guess for someone.

Because i guess he sought for the for the pirate calico jack o. You talked about joining him for a life of piracy in plunder and. It was rumored that she would often board a targeted ship dressed as a woman. She'd flirt with the captain while she would like case the joints of interesting. It'd be helpful on. Yeah so yeah do you go in and everybody all up. Yeah sure these drunk. Yeah they were. They were doing so when calico jacks crew boarded the vessel. She'd be among them dresses. A man with guns leasing. Cooley threatening that. If they made annoys she would blow out their brains nice right. She wasn't taking any so. It was during this time that mary had been captured by pirates and had joined their crew. So the two met when calico. Jacks ship overtook the ship. But mary had been capture on. Oh and then mary. Joint captain or captain calico jacks crew. Okay so when and discovered mary's a woman they became friends there like one where they kind of they became friends and they helped calico jack plunder ships in the caribbean. So you know all the things come to an end as we know and they eventually got caught and had because about he had been put on. Everybody's had our captain calico jacks. Yeah i can imagine that can only go on for so long in israeli roaming the thing as you're more and more successful yeah that you would become more and more known to the authorities right.

They were caught in grow bay which is in jamaica and when the captors with people who finally caught up with them avoided the ship they found in bonney and mary read ready for a fight they were ready to fight but the crewmen were all drunk below deck everybody but the girls yeah And it was reported that the women yelled come up you carry them fight like men but instead of fighting the pirates surrendered and the next morning.

Everybody trying to spread their own religion around losing so they had largely run their course The powers of western europe were on the rise during that time during the beginning of the pirate an age the golden age the powers of western europe are on the rise and the vast ottoman empire was beginning. Its gradual decline So pressures within the ottoman empire to keep what it had and also to gain what it wanted Fueled conflict with the european powers and this was especially the case on the seas were trade routes made or the economic powers of the states so in an effort to handicap the ottoman empire the catholic knights of malta which relator renamed the knights of saint. John they would give letters of mark. I think that's how you say marquee. I think it's just mark m. a. r. q. e. two ships of other nations. So that basically these letters gave them permission to be pirates. Who said they would give them to other ships of other nations in basically telling them to attack on Targets so the non multi sailors engaged in piracy against the ottomans effectively expanding. The maltese fleet as a result of their successful raids in the expansion of the fleet. They renamed the maltese corsairs. So these corsairs were feared and loathed by their greek and ottoman victims. Many of them became rich from their exploits. Some became so affluent that their dinners aboard ships. And this is interesting. You just told us that their dinners aboard ship were consumed on silver plates to cars after meals were smoke through amber cigar holders and they wiped spilt contractor spilled coffee off their jackets or earned their mouths with fine french linen.

So most christian ships were given safe passage as long as they had a shipping license or their had reason to be where they were from their own government. They were And they were even protected by the corsairs however if a christian ship was carrying good from muslim territories they were considered fair game. Except those coming from france Sure why that is so. English shipping however was always an acceptable target. Yeah because the british crown was supplying weapons.
