26 Burst results for "Saint Andrews"
"saint andrews" Discussed on Fore Play
"He just played in the masters. He's playing in the PGA Championship. He hasn't missed a major. But we all said that like 6 weeks ago, we were like, yeah, no way he plays this year. I think I put like 0% chance on anything except for saint Andrews. I was like maybe 50% just because it's like flat and he loves that place. But now like the guys walking up and down the hills of southern hills, it's truly incredible. You said he should move to saint Andrews a month before and after they himself to Scotland to prepare to play at one major and he's just laying in all of them. Which I still think he should do. I think that's insane. He kind of is. Dude he's going over the he's going to Ireland like two weeks before and playing in this pro am thing and I think it's the Monday Tuesday before open week and then I doubt he's going to fly back so I think he's kind of acclimating himself to the United Kingdom, which is which is nuts. We haven't. We haven't really talked about, but we're going to be over on that side of the pond at that same time. So if we run into Tiger at the old pub in Scotland, that would be something. Tigers just at the pub just sitting back, having a couple beers playing a game of cards. Those Scottish people are crazy enough where I don't think they'd even fucking blink. They just be like, all right, what do you want? Totally. They go Tiger, you want to get us, and they just keep ripping. I think I would just kill myself after that. If we just get a Guinness with Tiger Woods, I mean, that's just the best thing that's ever happened. It's only downhill from here, see you later, boys. Well, you could either do that or you can fly on one of these fucking planes that are dropping out of the air recently. What the fuck is that about? I don't want to talk about it too much because I have a flight today, but things are starting to happen on these commercial flights. And I don't want to get into it. I really don't, because I think it's horrific to talk about on this big of a platform. But these engine fires and electrical fires that are happening. I mean, that picture on the Padres. He said his fucking plane nosedive down to the ground. It's like Delta flight nosedive down to the ground. The fucking pilot was like everyone put your fucking mask on. I don't want to do stuff because I don't want to deal with that shit because lord knows two lurch was up there. I mean, I took 92 flights last year. I think I'm probably going to take more of this year, I can't think about that stuff. It's not a world I want to live in. But both planes, both planes, one had been like, I think one of them was like the Alabama or some SEC school, their gymnastics team experienced the same thing. Both planes glided down, but that dropped down can't be fun. It can't be. Have you seen the Boeing doctor? No. Nope. Yeah, I watched a documentary dude..

"I know there are some speculation that it's not really a great fit for him. You know, the long rough, the brutal conditions, whatever. He's still going to play as many majors as he can. He's going to play the JP McManus pro am, will probably try to figure out if he's playing memorial or not. He's going to play it saint Andrews. Who knows about stuff like the FedExCup playoffs, you'd have to actually play pretty well even to have a chance at making those. He probably doesn't really care. We can start to piece together the future of Tiger Woods on the PGA Tour from moments like this, which is really interesting. And this is also Sean, I think the last time we probably need to send the chopper in the air for a while when it comes to Tiger playing a practice. I mean, at this point, why not? Well, it's funny. I didn't think I was going to be the anti chop or the hittite chopper guy in this podcast, but I mean, I just think now we know we know what we've been wondering, which is, is Tiger still limping a little bit? Yes, is he playing golf? Yes, is he going to play the next time we think he's going to play? Yes. But the mystery is a little bit gone except for how he's actually going to play once he comes back, which is hopefully Sean very well because this thing was never going to be that fun if he comes back and misses cuts are finishes at the bottom of the leaderboard. The first PGA Championship that I ever went to was in 2014 at Valhalla, Valhalla, Kentucky, Louisville, Tiger Woods was dealing with some back issues. It was parking lot gait. The fact that tigers, SUV, either showed up or didn't show up every single day, many, many, many media members were taking photos of his parking space, either filled with a car or empty with no car. And he showed up, I believe on, I believe his first round was on that Wednesday prior. It might have been the Tuesday. I think it was that Wednesday prior. And my boss just told me drop whatever you're doing and follow Tiger inside the ropes and tweet everything he does. And what I think is crazy is that we're still handle or was this from the old brand account from the brand account. And what I think is crazy is that somehow that isn't the craziest will he or won't he major decision of Tiger's career that lines up with my career. This is now the craziest. The fact that a helicopter was in the sky, the fact that he's that we are tracking his master's house everywhere goes. The masters is number one. But I guess I'm looping it all into the same thing where this year will he or won't he at the masters we'll hear it won't he at the PGA Championship will he or won't he at Brookline, we do know that he probably will play at saint Andrews at the old course, the literal Super Bowl of golf events that happens every 5 years..

"A really sweaty golf course. It's going to be hot in Oklahoma. Yeah. I think that part's good. The heat's definitely a good thing. Oh yes. When you can move better, I mean, I know he can move better, but like when you're getting drained by 95° heat, that doesn't necessarily make you better. Yeah. No, I feel confident saying that that actually would be a decent test for him. Certainly. It feels like a Goldilocks scenario where like too hot, too cold. Tiger needs it to be right and well said, I think he does need it just right. In a different way than Rory, which is kind of the same thing we were saying about Rory. He needs it just right. Tiger definitely needs it just right where he needs it to be tough, but not tough in a U.S. open way, where it's long rough and challenges on the body. He needs it to be like he can handle a long golf course, but again, just not one that is demanding in that particular way. And I think that southern hills actually could suit him fairly well. He basically committed to playing at saint Andrews. No, he did. He did commit to not basically. Yeah. He said, I can't wait to play the open. He said he'll play there. And he said that he hopes to play. You want to know why he'll play there? Because he likes it. He likes the course. He's got great history there. Saint Andrews also happens to be the flattest golf course on the planet. That's true. You will not find a flatter golf course. I don't think that saint Andrews especially one that they're playing a major championship at. He likes that course. He knows that course. He can hit a lot of stingers at that golf course. He doesn't need to use absurd length in speed to catch up to players. He can use his wedges. He can be really smart golfer. The way he was at carnoustie when he damn near one the open in 2018. Saint Andrews with this golfer feels like it might even be better than Augusta, right? Yeah. Yeah, I think so. I mean, the people that we've seen when open championships except for Colin Morikawa have been guys that have been through it. That have picked up craftiness and have been around the game for a little while and aren't necessarily at the peak of their actual full PGA Tour career, but have clearly gotten better at something that translates to that style of golf. Dillon's take a quick break before we close to talk about global golf, global golf has one letter on its mind right now, Dylan. Do you know what that letter is? I do. And I think it's delightful. The letter is you..
"saint andrews" Discussed on No Laying Up
"I can't recommend this enough again. Code no laying up on cash app. Let's get back to Colin Moore calla. Going back and watching highlights from it, you know, you know, even less than a year ago, but the history books will forever, you know, show you winning. That's what I remember. I remember dominance. I honestly didn't remember the start on Saturday. Take us to the start on Saturday. What you got out of that some interaction, maybe you had with JJ during that time period. I found that super interesting. You look back on because I feel like that's going to get lost to history. Yeah, no, it definitely will. And to this day, that's the maddest I've ever been at JJ. And, you know, people look at me as like, you know, this really calm guy and I am. I love being in this situation. I think I bogeyed two, so I was one over through four. I ended up being one over three four. I get to 5 T, I feel like I was striping my shots, hitting really good iron shots, tee shots, even just not scoring. And I hit this perfect flywheel off with tea, or where we thought was perfect. Midair, JJ's like, good shot. And I'm like, I'm just watching it. I feel the wind pick up, blows it right. Lands in the fairway kicks, ends up right on the lip of the bunker. I end up hitting that shot almost OB, barely had a stance, a great shot make bogey. After that tee shot, or after that hole, I looked at him and I was like, I don't want you calling any other shot in there again, like ever. And I could tell that he was, he was a little pissed off at me too by saying that. But I think I needed to get that off my shoulders. So we go and play, go and play the 6 full. He looks at me and he's like, I'm trying my best. And I'm like, I know, I know. I just had to say something like, it was a weird, you know, is something that you just had to get off your chest. And then we both had to get over it, and we did. And then we just started going and we kept ourselves within the lead and thankfully saved that round. And it's weird. That's the maddest I've ever gotten at him. But you had to get it off or else I would have been angry at myself or at him, and it's like holding something in to someone that you are so close with, that it just, why not just tell them? You know, like we're both going to get over it. There's something about somebody making a comment that is super, super innocent, that just rubs you the wrong way. Again, I'm right there with you. I played yesterday. I'm like, it's just like a guy saying great putt when it's like ten feet out and it lifts out and you're like, shut up. Don't say anything. Do not say anything. And you know, normally it's fine. Normally it's really innocent and you get away with it. But this one, I just wear bounced and landed in the fairway and it just was on the lip of the bunker like just everything went wrong with that kind of 5 seconds there. So, you know, you're coming off a not great performance at the Scottish open. Now you're changing some equipment going into saint George's. After you've seen that golf course, are you already convincing yourself that you're talking to yourself into that you can win this tournament or your expectations a little lower going into it is your first open championship and you obviously you end up winning it, but like what was that process like of getting into the competitive mode of like, hey, this is my tournament now. You know, it goes back to what I said about showing up to these golf courses. I can win. Is that like I didn't show up and be like, oh man, link style calls. You know, I don't know how to play. I have no chance of winning. I showed it to the course and did my due diligence with him with JJ and myself to learn the course Monday through Wednesday. And feel his prep by Thursday to think I can win the tournament. And that's what I do every single week. And I feel like the prep we put into the weeks or learning the golf course really helps. And that's what I'm interested to see about like saint Andrews later this year is that it's a course I've never been to. I've never played, I could not tell you holes other than one 1718, but it's a little more lengthy, right? So I'm going to have to learn that course even a lot more because there's just so many hidden features to it. And I like knowing every in and out of a golf course. But that's the thing. It's like I showed up to the royal saint George's feeling great, learning the golf course, showed up to the first hole and thought I could win. And that's what you have to do. I think you have to do that. And if you don't think you can win by first, on Thursday, when you tee it up, I mean, you're just praying for luck. I can not wait for the old course. It's so it's so freaking interesting and it there's just so many layers to it. I hope you get some wind. You need a little bit of wind. That's what I've heard. That's what bunkers out there that are like, well, why is that there? And then the next day, you're oh my God, I don't even know if I can cover that bunker. It's a magical chess match going on with the dual fairways, yet the.
Eric Describes the Funniest Story From His New Book 'Is Atheism Dead?'
"There are a lot of funny stories in the book. And usually when I do interviews, I don't get to tell these stories. I've got a glance over the top. But you just asked me about one of my favorites. I mean, I can't tell you how much joy I just laugh every time I think about it. But this was the discovery in 1979 of what's called the silver ketef scrolls. And what that means is these are incredibly tiny silver scrolls that were so tiny they were worn as amulets. And they had the priestly blessing the ironic blessing where the priests would say the lord bless you and keep you the lord make his countenance to shine upon you and give you peace. I mean, this holy thing from the scripture of written in silver in really Proto hebraic because this is from 6 50 BC. Anyway, but how was it found? Yes. I, if you read books and archeology, it'll sort of tell you, oh, this was discovered here here by so and so and so and so I was okay. But somehow, in my research, because I have fun doing the research, I discovered this weird backstory. And the more I dug the funnier it became. Yeah. Okay, here's the story. The guy whose last name, oh gosh, what is it? It's Barack. I can never say his name. It's the book here. But anyway, it's not Jacobs. No, it's a 28 year old. It's a 28 year old guy studying archeology in a Tel Aviv, or Jerusalem. So he's a nobody. He's 6 years from his PhD, but he gets this idea in his head that below Saint Andrew's church outside just right at the outset skirts of Jerusalem. There are some old caves and burial caves, whatever. They've all, they looked like they've been excavated. There's nothing there, but he has a hunch that there's more to be found there. But he doesn't have any credibility or anything to get real archeological students to help him. So he has to be really humble and say, you know, I'll take anybody who can help me. Gabriel barques Gabriel bark, I think it's barkai, barkey. He has to go and this is like a joke. So archeology club, 12 and 13 year olds. They volunteer the kids, the kids can help you. So how'd you like 12 and 13 year olds annoying 12 and 13 year olds to help you on this big dig? So they do the dig, they find nothing. He's disappointed, and he says, well, you know what? At least to we've got a photograph, all these chambers, even though we found nothing, there was one kid that was so annoying to this barkai that barkey was like ripping his hair out and he says, I can't take another minute of this annoying 12 year old named Nathan. So here's what I'm going to do. All of these caves need to be photographed. The most distant one or one of the distant ones and over cave 25, he sends Nathan there, and he's really stern with him, like angry, like, hey, I've had enough out of you. I want you to clean that chamber. It's gonna be photographed. I want it to be so clean that your mother could use it as a kitchen. Like you really threatens the kid because this kid was very annoying. So Nathan trundles off to this distant place. And the joy, of course, is that it's far away, and we're not going to hear from this kid for two or three hours while he's doing what we do. But he takes a hammer with them, which is a weird thing, nobody knows. But the kid is so annoying that to go clean the cave, he just happens to hide a hammer on his person. And when he's bored in this sacred chamber, okay? There's nothing there. It's got a stone floor, whatever. He takes the hammer out. Nobody knows this, okay? He's all alone and starts smashing the floor with the hammer. Now this alone, I find it funny. The only reason he's there is because he was so annoying, they sent him as far away as possible. But if he wasn't annoying enough, he had a hammer with him and decides to use the hammer to smash the floor. The board Nathan smashes the floor with the hammer so hard that it cracks. It wasn't supposed to crack. And he finds a hidden chamber. He sticks his hand in the hidden chamber and is dragged into the bowels of hell itself. Just kidding. He puts his hand into hidden chamber and he pulls out some stuff, some like little ceramics. He now is like, hey, this is what I'm here for. I'm not here to clean. I found treasure. So he runs to barkai and tugs on his shirt. He's like, hey hey, look what I found. You could see bark. I could picture his hair standing on end, like what is going on? The annoying kid is back with some ancient treasure. So they run back to the place, barkai sees that, what do you assumed was an empty place was in fact hiding this stuff and the annoying kid was so annoying that he smashed the floor open or whatever. So he sends the kid home and they spend days now excavating the secret whole and they pull out treasure after treasure and the greatest treasure is what we described. And unbelievably tiny silver scroll so delicate that they couldn't unwrap it for three years. They didn't know how to have the technology without destroying it. But they could read the words inscribed in silver. Now if it's inscribed on anything but silver, it doesn't last. So the Dead Sea scrolls, which are amazingly old, they're not this old. This is even older. So this is the first extant writing from the Hebrew scriptures ever discovered thanks to the annoying 12 year old Nathan. He's probably in his mid 50s right now and he doesn't know. And when he's

"Yeah, like you're saying, or even just finding pulling one out of a hat and being like, all right, today we're playing this club's rules today. And then we're just throwing golf balls around. I gotta tell you, you guys are gonna love, I think from 1812 in saint Andrews and you guys are gonna love this one the moment. You hit a hit a ball in the water hazard. You tee the ball and play it from behind the hazard. Yep. That's a good one. Absolutely. How good is that? I mean on a par 5 it becomes beneficial. You just pound it in the hazard. And then you tee it up from there and smash it up to the green. It's so beneficial. It's the best strategic to hit it into the water in that case. You're getting the water, creeping into the water. Get in there. You're eating three teed up. Right, perfect. No problem. Because if I don't do that, I gotta hit hybrid wedge up there anyway to the same spot. Mine's well just hit a driver and save everybody time. Yeah, imagine too like the guy next to you. It just his ball ended up like a yard short of the water. He's buried in this brutal rough spot, you're just year two yards left to him, just tea and one up with your driver, take a little practicing, use the rose to try it out. This sounds like my dad's rules, by the way. I think my dad is definitely 1812. That's where he got it from the 1812 saint Andrews book. He was inspired by them. That's right. In before you go into the next one boys, I got to go back to my world of axon. Go back to drones. Oh my God. I love you all, I'll talk to you later. See you big man. Bye. Bye, go get them. Time is there right now. Keep going, Rick's two 30. 1809, the honorable company, which I mentioned earlier, they came up with the rule that you faced the whole and dropped the ball overhead, which is not that dissimilar from really what we were doing. It's more of like a mic drop, though. Yeah, it does feel like a mic drop. Yeah, you're right. And it feels a little bit more random. Like that ball comes in with a little more velocity..
"saint andrews" Discussed on Dopey: On the Dark Comedy of Drug Addiction
"Area is a hotbed for and there'd be like crack block heroin block fake id. We'll the crack block. I thought was east like saint julian or whatever saint andrews saint andrews. I had a crack dealer that lived on saint andrews in third rcn andrews in sixth and and but then also like sometimes things would have been swept and like you can find crack but no heroin which was a total nightmare. Yes i i wouldn't. I didn't i don't think i did coke once in la. I didn't do crack ones. I just got pills and a heroin. Just that's it. I ha i went through that crack re. I know so bad. But that's a good. That's a good story. I was gonna ask you was going to ask. I like around the time when you got sober. What i got out of the story in the book was that you were so connected to twelve step group to outpatient group to a recovery. Seen that like it was so shitty by the time you got pregnant you were like i don't wanna be around it. I just. I just felt so ashamed. I felt like i couldn't like i almost think needed like a fresh start. You know and that was you know. That's not the problem. The twelve step meetings. That's my shed. And then you know maybe a little bit of people who are around. Then it's also just the the i think the phenomenon of being young And like around young people in a pseudo social setting so it. It does a lot of the spiritual aspect and adds very much of a social aspect. Yeah and it's like an fucks it fucks you up. I mean i only went to meetings at seven thirty in the morning so there was none of that it was just like before work was never like in the evening to get home at home watching. Tv in the evening was i was going to like cafe tropical. I went to that spot wanted to. That's about one time. And i was like i just felt like i felt like i was not cool. That was my very first. Meeting was at the log cabin robertson which is like a famous place and i mean you know when i first started to meetings i was twenty three and i needed like i needed like somewhere to find like this new social structure so it was good in a way but it was also bad because you know as a young woman walking into like if felt like a feeding frenzy in terms of like water predatory people in in the rooms then and like you know it's whatever it was all about they just wanted to have sex and i was young and wanted to have sex too but now like looking back and i'm like oh it's just so gross while but you can't i mean i don't i don't like to not gross because of the sex but just like to like when somebody comes into the rooms with twenty eight days or thirty days like let them. It's unfortunate unfortunate. That like you come in young and like attractive and like fucked up. Yeah it's like a and then there's this whole network of people that want to have sex with or that you or that wanna be your friend right and there's these components that you're not ready for. It's a lot like school in like a weird but it's like school for total fuck ups you you started using when you were thirteen. You shot heroin at thirteen ten days after my thirteenth birthday crazy right. I look at thirteen year. Olds now. And i'm shocked the fucked up thing right and this is weird because i have an eleven year old. You have and i have a three year old. You have an eighteen year old. Almost nineteen year old turned eighteen. Happy birthday and you have like a six year old. Four year. Old for your. I'm great my research is spot on but it's like and this is just sad. This sad like imagining a thirteen year. Old who shoots dope now. Yeah it's fucking heartbreaking. Like you know. I somebody you know. Of course people often ask. What would you go back until young person and like really like the biggest thing is like i had so much self hatred then and like now. I have so much empathy for the young version of me. That really didn't know that that she wasn't a monster that she wasn't like just this broken horrible person that if people knew what she really felt would like run and discussed. I really felt that. I really really thought like if people knew what was going on inside my head that they would not you know. It's like that primal thing like if if they knew x. They won't love me right. And and we're i mean. I know that you think that was born in in sexual trauma. Yeah i mean. I think you know. I was sexually abused when i was a kid. And i didn't tell anyone. Baby sitter no. It was the brother of adolescent son of family riders. So you know and then like it was confusing. Because i mean he was an adult. He was an adolescent. But you know. I was four either way yeah. It doesn't really matter like over the years i did that. So much right. Like i tried to minimize it. I'm like well at least he. Was you know technically kid too. And like it wasn't it wasn't that bad at least i wasn't related but it really fucked me up. I still process. This shouldn't therapy. And i'm like oh my god look how long i don't know i mean. I think that sometimes with early childhood trauma. It's kind of stuff that maybe you process your whole life and in some ways. That sounds really daunting and then in other ways it's a relief because you don't have to have it all figured out. It's okay that it's not all resolved it can be result. It's like anything that happens to you. You need to deal with it but the rest of your life you know. If it's my mother was pretty over barren i have and this is something i don't i don't my wife is convinced this is fucked up. I'm probably gonna take this out of the show but my wife is convinced that i was sexually abused or sexually molested and like i have weird memories. Don't make sense. And like i had a memory of of being a little boy and like hooking up with another little boy and i've never said this on dopey smashed like crazy crazy revelatory information and then i contacted i ran into the little boy cats and as man and i asked him if he remembered that me and him used to fool around right or for years old right he was like no. I don't remember that at all but he told me that he was molested at the camp. But what if. I was the one that molested him. No no no because to be. It's not abnormal for two four year olds to fool around like i think he was three or five and he was four at that age group. It's not that's not abnormal. But there is a high likelihood that if you were doing that maybe somebody who was an adult was doing it. I mean i you know i. I don't think. I think that you know i've never met. That doesn't mean they don't exist. But i've never met a female identifying heroin addict who wasn't raped or sexually abused and a lot. A high percentage of men. I know who were heroin. Addicts had some sort of childhood trauma or sexual abuse. That doesn't mean for everybody. Obviously there's plenty of people who who have addictions that weren't sexually abused but it is. There is a very high percentage that they're i think with early childhood trauma. The thing that so fucked up talk about this in the book. It's trauma doesn't record and same way in our brain so it took me a long time to even figure it out you know. I knew that he had been really mean to me. And i didn't like him but it wasn't really until i saw him like by chance when i was nineteen that look at all like made sense and i still my memories of what happened. Like there's some things details that are very clear. and then there's huge gaps. Because i was so young and because it was really traumatic our brains protect us by kind of dispersing the information all over the place and then it's like this jigsaw puzzle and you have to figure out how to put it back together. See i don't. I don't think that i'll ever get to the bottom. Because i actually reached out to the kid and he said it was a counselor in the camp and he was my counselor..
"saint andrews" Discussed on The Kirk Minihane Show
"I said punch seven. They're sorta help cheese it's downhill so what a or. Maybe it's not. I don't know we could you if you sometimes i go to compass. Winds coming out of the northeast.

The more cautious bore me because if that kid is a machine but it's fun to watch them like it's good for them. I think that the open needs tough weather. I if i don't know question it's just when i i've been over there golfing. It's amazing. i actually enjoy golfing over there. More than in north america but i just think without watching weather rain wind. It's just not being might as well be like tucson in the courses are so easy without wind not that long because they have to compensate for the win xactly so that kid. Though i don't know man he's he's he's he's like head on the shoulders like he just seems like everything is going towards four five majors if there's good weather. Oh yeah. there's good weather next year at saint andrews those guys obliterate thirty on. It's going to be a pitch and putt for them. This win it's fine but if not in sunny there.

When To Be 'That Mom'
"That Mom Amy. Do you know what I mean? When I say that Mom, it's like that thing when you know it when you see it, but what is it exactly and there are times when you should be in town you shouldn't be in how do you know? When should you care if you're that Mom? That's what I want to talk about today. Well, and I think that's really interesting. Should you care if you're that Mom and also that Mom has a, So that we've talked about a lot before and the podcast which is that mom who has to bring up food at the celebration and Mara. It's like everyone kind of Goo Saint Andrews her eyes at that Mom. But when you're not that Mom for a second and your kid eat something they're allergic to you've got a big problem. So it's the classic dilemma that we talked about of like don't helicopter. But then the second you look at your phone at the playground someone posts on Facebook like God, she's not even enjoying her kids lives. Like it's a classic no-win situation that Mom and there's no that Dad I would argue you know that if it gave us know that Dad know right if that dad went to the principal and said, I think we you know shouldn't be celebrating Columbus Day anymore or whatever people would be like rushing to give this damned relation for being so involved in the life of the school. Oh if a dad was like my kids allergic to that people would faint a way that dad knows what his kid is allergic to what hero among them. Proceed directly to the knighting ceremony. That is a sir. Right there. So I think what that Mom does is that Mom advocates for her kids, right, even when it's uncomfortable I would argue for other people other parents and other kids we can talk about when you know when you need to do that, too. Yes, I think that's right and it can be really trivial. We got the idea for this topic because in our Facebook group home facebook.com cast last week. There was a mom who asked a question about her daughter being afraid to go to the bathroom in the kindergarten bathroom because they have the new brake lights that you know shut off after a certain amount of time and you have to weigh your hand around to keep them on but the kid is now terrified to go to the bathroom. She won't go to the bathroom at school and the teacher saying well just get your hands around but it's not working for this kid and the moms in the comments were saying time to be that Mom and this is a trivial thing except if you're the kid who is, you know, holding in your pee for 6 hours. You're terrified of the bathroom. You're terrified. Yeah, and it was time for this mom to be that Mom and go to the school and be like can you just will lengthen the amount of time before the lights go off, please? Yeah, and that's right off and I reminded me we were a long time ago in the before times in a hotel a motel room, you know, whatever we stopped on a road trip and the door shut off. It had a little a weird little you know, how Motel why do they always have to do stuff differently instead of like opening? It had a little button you had to push and it would open the door a sliding door our door opens like this, right like walk like can we just knobs have been working for a thousand years people like why do we need to improve on the doorknob? Maybe cuz it's Germany, but I don't care. Just give me a doorknob. Anyway, my quite old kid got locked in the bathroom and freaked out. He's scared himself to death. And the thing is we were all in the motel room. He was in the bathroom. I don't know why freaked him out so badly and I think maybe the lights turned off as well. But anyway, he got scared out of his mind. Oh and then I went and opened the door for him. I showed him how to do it. And I was like, this is how you do is fine. But for some reason it was weirdly traumatic on our road trip back. We ended up stopping at the same wrong. I'm not saying room same hotel motel whatever and he was like everyone has to shut their eyes when I used the bathroom cuz I can't shut the door and I was like, you know what you're silly like just shut the door. I saw you had it for but for whatever reason he was dead freaked out by this experience any wouldn't use the bathroom and wouldn't shut the door and he's not for you know, and so I let it go. Like I'm going to give you this one for whatever reason I can see this is really freaking you out. I understand from a teacher's point of view that it's like you have to be able to use the bathroom and just wave your hands and she's got twenty kids. But sometimes you do have to be like I'm going to just let you have this one cuz I personally see how about freaked out you are by it and a teacher would not you know what I mean? It made me think of that situation. I think when you need to be that mom that I'll give you a takeaway that I've learned over time that if you are going to khong The school about something it is you will get further if you come with both the problem and the potential solution. Like I think if I were to Mom this situation, I might do a little investigation of how hard is is it exactly to change how long automatic light stay on before they go off if it's just something that you can you know switch and it takes 5 minutes and the electrician doesn't even need to come then you can say that can be easily fixed when my oldest child was three started school having lunch at school. They didn't want kids to bring lunch from home because of the you know, the allergies that exist these days this kid had had peanut butter and jelly everyday for lunch for years and they wouldn't give him just a jelly sandwich. They wanted it to be cream cheese and jelly So what had protein in it, whatever and oh, yes, I remember this. We've heard this tale before or this kid would rather make okay, then I just won't eat so he wasn't eating lunch, which of course led to some incredible meltdowns in the afternoons. And so I went to the school and said can we just get a jelly sandwich with this kid? No way Jose. And and so then I want to do a little research and said here are three options of nut-free Butters that can we maybe make this option available. And I know cuz my kids have been at the school for fifteen years this month. We not butter sandwich is still available at lunch time. It was easy to fix because oh you made that change. Yeah, cuz I came with a solution not just the why should my kid, you know what I mean, like bring the solution if it's easy they'll do it.
Your Pursuit of a Better Body and the Perfect Diet Is Never Going to Make You Happy
"Welcome to the show folks I have today. Actually, an old family friend of mine Doug Wilson, who is the Minister of? Christ. Church in Moscow Idaho, Church that I attended through much of my childhood and also during college and still visit quite frequently whenever I'm down in Moscow Idaho which is only about ninety minutes from from my home in Spokane, and so I've I've known Mr Wilson for quite some time and he actually had a stint in the US Navy for a while. and. Then he attended the same university that I did University of Idaho ever while I got a glorified personal training certification he studied philosophy, and since then went on to do quite a bit notably, he he helped found and now serves on the board of Logo School, the school that my wife attended, which is a classical and Christian K through twelve school down in Donna Moscow he's also the senior fellow of theology at New Saint Andrews. College. In Moscow Idaho, which I would consider to be One of the better liberal arts institutions in the country actually end quite close to the coffee shop that my mom actually runs down in Moscow. Idaho and so I'm familiar with a lot of the students that go to that university as well or or that college as well a he has authored many books Mr Wilson is a prolific author and and his books are fantastic. He has A. Books on marriage on on child rearing on on I absolutely love his his titles on raising boys just because I have twin boys myself some excellent books on Christian Education his son Nathan Wilson. You might also be familiar with as as a as a well-known fiction author and all a link to to all of his books as well as everything else that we talk about if you go to Ben Greenfield fitness, dot com slash Doug, Wilson and. Doug also has about a metric ton of grandkids spread across the planet with what seems to be rapidly increasing frequency, and so he has a he has a lot of a lot of children out there bearing his name as. and so it the the topic that I really wanted to get into today is related to a book that Mr Wilson wrote called confession of a Food Catholic. I'm also going to link to that in the show notes as well because I I really really love to get. Your perspective. In by the way, I seem to be going back and forth between Doug and Mr Wilson, what do you prefer for for the show on Doug is great. All right. That's GonNa that's GonNa shorten the syllables I gotta us. All right. So so doug, you wrote this book called Confessions of a Food Catholic and and I know that you've also done quite bit of thinking about how we tackle this. the this relationship between health and fitness and pursuit of a better body and caring for our bodies and carrying for God's Temple but at the same time. Not kind of a sliding into into a selfish obsession with with our bodies and with health or with longevity or anti-aging at all costs, and this is certainly something that's been a a topic on my mind quite a bit lately and so. the this book confession of Food Catholic that you wrote with you say is dedicated all those at church dinners. I noticed didn't have enough protein on their plates and tried to cover it up by noticing I didn't have enough Greens on mine. Let, let's start here what what is a food Catholic and how would you describe yourself as a food. Catholic. Great. Thanks for having me on. This is a great opportunity afoot. Catholic is someone who believes that all foods are acceptable for us to eat with regard to our spiritual condition. In other words, I cannot put distance between me and God through anything I, put my mouth or I. Can't be put right with God through anything that I eat what I've noticed, and the reason I wrote the book is that many people feel they eat they feel a spiritual guilt either they feel if they eat poorly, if they missed the regimen that they assigned for themselves, it's not like, Oh, I failed to do the extra push up. It's there's a spiritual guilt that many people feel. And what I wanted to do was go to war with that sensation of guilt with regard to what you eat now if someone said yeah. But if someone had a a diet of deep fat fried twinkies and that's all. That's all they ate wouldn't that be bad for them or yeah it'd be bad for them. It'd be bad for their physical wellbeing is not healthy, but they're not corrupting their soul by means of the twinkie. Now, they may be corrupting their soul by means of their lack of discipline but that's a different issue. It's a different category. So we have a tendency to blame when we have a moral failing or. A spiritual shortcoming, we want to blame the stuff instead of addressing the root spiritual issue, which is your relationship to God i. think it's far worse to be fighting with someone over what they you go out to lunch with a friend and you spend the time quarrelling over what they ordered instead of just enjoying the time with your friend, right so so you're saying basically, is that sometimes the the legalism or the Self Righteousness That we get with with a lot of these laws that we set up for our self regarding food whether it's you know I'm going to be gluten free or I'm avoiding carbohydrates or I'm I'm not consuming vegetable oils because those aren't good for my body. What you're saying is that is that what you would care more about is not whether someone eats organic or processed food but why they're actually making those decisions exactly. So if What somebody else eats is frankly none of my business they're the one asked to eat it is their lunch they ordered it e if you want a a meal that's higher in fiber are lower in fiber or you need gluten not there or you maybe earth counter countering you order extra gluten. Right. Fixed. Diluting powder but we actually call that soy sauce. So. So you use this term in the book called the Food Pharisee, which is great. The P. H. O. Food Pharisee. And you describe these food pharisees as those who who would be unwilling to bring their food laws before the Bible to be examined and and said, that's a topic that Christians really need to think through biblically and when you get into this whole concept of a food fairs lifestyle, what I'd love you to do if possible is telling, you told me what you would describe a food Baresi. And then get into some of the issues regarding I. Think you break it down into into five different issues that this food pharisee lifestyle could be described as. So if you bring your food if you. Say Okay I want to compare how I eat to the Bible I to bring my food choices in the Bible. There's good news and bad news well, good news and bad news for the Food Pharisee. The good news is that whatever it is you're eating is fine. That's the good news. The bad news is whatever it is. Your neighbor is eating is also fine and the food pharisee is someone who wants to feel superior. They want to look down on someone who's making sub optimal choices right

River Dolphins Have a Wide Vocal Repertoire
"This is scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata. Freshwater dolphins live in many of the world's biggest rivers from the Amazon to the Ganges and they differ in a lot of ways from their better known ocean-going cousins, they have a flexible neck, they have different types of teas speak and also move their flippers independently in different directions, so they can swim backwards. Gabrielle Miller son does a marine biologist at the university of Saint Andrews in Scotland when I decided that I wouldn't be a biologist used to set it that I wanted to study dolphins and being born in the Amazon Nevis only metro to go for the riverdell since he says another thing that sets his study subjects apart from marine.

That's on Brazil's token teens river, then using sound analysis software his team fished two hundred and thirty seven distinct sound types from the recordings indicating the dolphins have a wide repertoire, the call collection published in the journal peer Jay has only a few whistles instead three quarters of the collected. Sounds were short to parters like this one. Produced by a female calf has she rubbed her head on her mother's belly. It's a call. That's more similar in structure to the ones orcas and pilot whales make to identify a family or social group then to the social whistles of marine dolphins. These are older lineages, right? So issue understand how these communicated we might have a sense to understand how the communication system evolved in different Lena Joseph cetaceans, meaning perhaps these calls between mother and calf are like the river dolphins themselves and Evelyn relic.

So as much as we've already found, they think there's there's something really big here and something really special very high grade and very high margin opera mind there and part of it, then is is you get that you get that scale because of because what we did in kurkin link old few years back the merger of three smaller come to make one bigger company gives us more capital discipline ability to display capital better. And and and invest wisely in these mines that we weren't able to do privately prior to your. Just because your company we're seeing some lower growth companies merged the, but the big off my friend gave favor, and I would tell him today. What is this urge to merge among the Newmont's mung the the barracks which had been different generation both companies? Maybe you know, sometimes sometimes by putting that together. I mean, again, if you look at kurkin linked by us merging, we did back in two thousand sixteen Saint Andrews on with new market gold. We're able to put ourselves in a physician where we could we could now invest differently and look at our minds differently. We're able to close some minds that that were non-profitable and take a step back and reinvest in them, we had the capital resources available to us more money. You know, I think that that that goes for the larger players as well. And meaning there's lots of things that can happen. You can change your in terms of how how you can move the business forward that bite by doing these mergers. And I think they're on they're on the right track. I can't say that anything wrong with it. Because he look at the example of kurkin link goals in the success. We've had and you have to see that..

"Tone sewer plant in the middle of it. So wouldn't be your perfect pet right for a Gulf core site, especially the Holman Gulf. But it's the woman Gulf, you know, and I'm a Scotsman, and I get per Tennessee to build it. And I know going into the chances are no matter what I do hope. Good a job. I do there's gonna be a fair percentage a haters Nomar. What I did. And I struggled for two or three years trying to before we built it trying to figure out how to deal with those detractors on my father gave me wise vice one day, he said, you'll know please them all suggests please yourself to get what that means. I do. You'll never please them. All. Yeah. You you will never achieve it. So just do something that pleases yourself. And so me, and my little cohort did exactly that we built what we thought was cool, and we figured that. If we were really really bold. Given that there are hundreds and hundreds of years of golf played at Saint Andrews. If we were really bold time would adjust and refining over decades millennia, and hopefully if we were bowled, the, of course, would stand the test of time and the contentiousness and the debate over it would eventually play to its advantage because being bland as you will know in Europe particular sphere gets you nowhere. No. It does not. That's very true. Yeah. So I went beggar go home. I went I decided on the go beg. It's it's interesting here. And you think about or hearing you explain that. Because because. Yeah. Even when when I went over like I said booked my flights like a month beforehand. And I said, okay, I'm going to be in in the Saint Andrew's area for about three and a half days. Where should I play in the castle? Course, you it had spectacular some spectacular photos in it did have incredibly mixed reviews. I will say since then it's so I did not play when I was over there since then it is jumped up on my list because I do love bold golf, and and it just kind of hear you explain it. It's it's it's a tough. It's a tricky spot to be like, you said because you obviously want to take that opportunity, but, you know, especially with all the history there and all of that they're gonna be haters, and it sounds like from what I've heard there certainly are. But I think most of us I've heard are incredibly positive about it. Well, I think my one of my peers Tom Doak was kind enough to give zero on his is confidential guidebook. I is funny. When I go coal from Ayman Lynch shoes with Gulf magazine at the time. And he said, do you know that he's done this? I said I should say thank you layer that that will go farther to pushing the undecideds in favor than anything. I could ever have done on my own. I love and he's a great guy. And that sounds like be curious as hear what he had to say about it. I know he's been struggling with says nothing. Good says nothing. Good Ayman hasn't finished eighteen holes a goal. Let's say and at least a decade. So he judges every course on the first sex or he walks back to the clubhouse Zoe opportunity. That's all he gets. So if you want a good review from aiming Lynch, make sure the first few holes are really good. It doesn't matter. But afterwards he'll like that. If you could take one exist. Existing golf course, any course on earth and redo it. However you wanted which one would it be? Pull. That is really really hard. Probably. One that's close by here is this cold flori- links. Now, it it's just up the road from Bandon on. It's a pretty podunk. Gold course. But it's on sand on the I I've looked pictures of it before it was constructed and the site was unbelievable. But the, of course, was Bill on it note, so much you know, that would have been that could be a great one to redo I think there are lots in this country. You know, there's a movement right now to renovate Olie's old masters Gil hands seems to be a historically reign of eating a dozens of golf courses around the country in a you know, he's doing unbelievably good job doing it. Some of the stuff the pictures. I see are breathtaking. Then I wonder there's no really I don't wanna see. But, but there's so many courses are being built in modern times, the aren't historic masterpieces on their on reasonably good sites in great locales. But the architecture just sucks you it's sucks. So if if we could also star a going back to those courses and just inject ten really good architecture into them. I think we could revitalise the game at relatively modest expanse with no real hit on permiting right there. Already permited. They've already clubhouses know irrigation systems car paths in cases, enter the goal this stuff. So all the big money already goes Spain and somebody already lost their ass on it. So they brought in people like me, we could take those courses in jet, great architecture into them in revitalize them, you know, like Brown. Infield development. Think of all these cities where they took the the the edge tied in that was crappy and the filled Philip bars and restaurants, the Gulf inversion of that. We maybe don't need to build new ones, we need to go to the relatively recent old ones in just reimagined them in a way that would work. The I think that would go an incredibly long way, especially a lot of these courses that are supposed to be for the public that are kind of supposed to be the go-to public courses near a city or near a certain town. I don't think people understand how much some of the shitty architecture that was put onto those places in the last twenty thirty years forty years at those places where built how much that deters people from playing because of all the reasons that we've already talked about. Now, there are unbelievable golf courses. I mean, my my poster child for a great Gulf course on a shitty site Chicago Gulf, but I got to play that last year. It's unbelievable. The golf courses so launch fun. Every single whole. You're scratching your head wondering where headed the the design is unbelievable. And yet the site is terrible. Pan flat. Nothing if someone showed me that site today be like, I don't know if I want to do it. And yet the goal, of course is on it. Because of the architecture is fantastic. So how many sites are there that are at least as good as Chicago golf club site. With good architecture could be phenomenal for the average player and the developer could probably sell it at reasonable cost because their their cost to of Aintree would be relatively low. These things are already losing might somebody probably wants to give it to them. So they could go, and then you bring in someone like me, and for you know, a few million bucks. Two million three million four million bucks. You could re imagine one of these things it could be doing twenty to forty thousand rains up fifty bucks. And doing really well. So I think that there are hundreds if not thousands of was all for -tunities across the country. And I think that could be the next wave of Gulf development. It wouldn't it shouldn't hurt too many people's feelings, you know, the the environment Klis shouldn't get too upset. There's already a golf course there that battles already over. So now, we're looking to actually build something that the public could enjoy at reasonable cost and someone could make modus. I hope I think the

"This is the study from WCS the wildlife Conservation Society who's been studying whale song for probably twenty years at this point university of Saint Andrews Stony Brook, university Madagascar, national parks, all these people work together to look at the whale songs at really synthesize them and figure out what was going on a transcribed more than fifteen hundred individuals sounds recorded between two thousand one and two thousand five they compared similar songs similarity using statistical methods. So somehow, you can boil music down to make sense you have the frequent. Yeah. No, it it does make sense. Yeah. They the wave form that you have there are you can note certain syllables in free end frequencies and birdsong they use statistics to analyze the song. All the time. I love that. So so they'll they'll boil the song down to. Song units made of moans cries or other vocalisations, and then the song units are put back together into larger phrases, which are called themes different themes are produced in sequence to make a song that is then repeated for hours to days and for the most part all males within the same population. Sing the same song. Type. There's a very strong similarity between a population of Wales, and this population wide, similarity is maintained despite the fact that members die new members are born there's kind of evolution and change in the song. It it moves with the group. So that they kind of considered hit songs. It's like the top ten right for the group. It's like having the same accent? Right. We're having that is. Yeah. Birds are or what have you is? Absolutely. And so we know that some song learning can occur between populations that are in close proximity. But this was interesting because these two animals are in completely different basins, and they're not in the same space for very long. Usually they when two sets to populations of whales will converge in their song type. It's when they share a meeting ground. So they're together for a while. But these guys they're pretty separate in. So in two thousand three they saw that the songs sung by one set of Wales in Gabon was more elaborate than those in Madagascar in two thousand and four they shared the same themes and then. Both whale groups in two thousand four head drop the same themes from their previous your song types that was like they were out of out of fashion. Like, oh, nobody's listening to that anymore. And then five songs being sung on both sides of Africa were very similar. They are individuals in both locations singing songs with the same themes and order. Well that case Israel. I will say that right? Don't complain. Yes, you're being. Fierce..

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here during the bronze age the Incas built the largest pre-columbian empire in the Americas extending along the west coast of South America from Bolivia to Chile they not only thrived in the harsh climate and dry steep slopes of the high Andes. They also served up masterclass and technical road-building that would have made the Romans quake in their sandals. Thank created a twenty five thousand mile highway system that's about forty thousand kilometers complete with rope bridges across treacherous mountain chasms. They also engineered millions of acres of high altitude terraced farmland and constructed an earthquake proof citadel on top of a craggy mountain peak one point five miles that's two point four kilometers above sea level, the even figured out how to freeze dried potatoes, but unlike the neighboring Maya and as techs and the ancient Mesopotamia's Chinese Egyptians, the Incan never developed a system of writing what they did have were keep Lou or not at length of cord made from Lana oral Pakowal or cotton. They hung in rows like. A curtain from a thicker central rope, which was sometimes coiled up to resemble the string mop these bundles were often color coded, although most surviving keep who are now a uniform camel color and could contain just a few strings or hundreds when the Spanish arrived and wiped out the entire in Kosovo ization, they found keep who everywhere but destroyed many of them in the nineteen s a science historian named Leland lock studying the keep who at the American Museum of natural history in New York City discovered the knots and the key PU represented numbers and the bundles of textiles were most likely recordkeeping devices similar to Advocacy's probably used to hold census data or to keep track of the contents of storehouses or how many lamas were paid tribute. He realized that the height of a not and its position on its cord civilized units tens hundreds thousands, and so on and the position of a string off the main rope could denote things like specific people or villages, but even after lock cracked the code. He noticed that some of the key. He studied seemed. To be anomalies. He figured these were used for ceremonial purposes. There are however anecdotal clues that entire narratives could be passed along through keep Oooo a one seventeenth century Spanish conquistador reported meeting an in-command on the road. Who carried keep Oooo that he said told of all the deeds of the Spanish in Peru. Good and bad. Keep who couriers reportedly ran all over the Incan empire. The cords looped over their shoulders, but finding living people now who can help researchers unravel. The secret of the nuts has proved very difficult. If not impossible so research has made slow progress in the past century since the early nineteen nineties Harvard anthropologist named Gary Burton has been working to decipher what if anything the key booze that don't fit the normal mold of accounting devices might mean collecting database of over nine hundred keep who in the process has discovered that beyond the position and height of the nods. There are other factors to take into consideration. When reading Kiu the color of the string. The direction. The knots are twisted and the type of knots used through cross-referencing, keep Kiu in the Harvard collection with Spanish documents from the exact time and location in Peru, where they originated he has recently been able to prove that the direction. The knots are tied in could note, which clans individuals belonged to another researcher named saving Highland at Saint Andrews university in Scotland has recently found that some keep who still exist within villages in the Andes the locals there has shared. Some new information about them, for instance, that the different materials used in the strings is significant and their understanding is that the devices were used to tell stories of warfare Highland. Also reports evidence of network symbols in the strings, it could be for all their ingenuity the Incas never learned to use symbolic written language, but it looks like they may have been just a little more creative with their storytelling than any other major civilization to date.
