Would You Ever have Plastic Surgery?
"Question is why. Do people have plastic surgery so indeed. This is a good one to ask. Personally i feel that people want to gain acceptance by changing their outward appearance. I think they feel by getting the enhancement. Their life will be easier than keeping their current physical appearance but there are actually some legitimate use cases but for plastic surgery. But i'm actually referring to the optional cosmetic type here not the reconstructive surgery that people will often undergo okay so i came across a blog post by doctor named dr vintage. Ns i believe his is as a twenty seventeen blog post article that actually broke down different reasons why people get plastic surgery and it goes as follows so reason number one because of an injury so common reason why people decide to have cosmetic plastic surgeries to correct a deformity or defect caused by injury so that seems legit similar to what you were saying. Outside of the the the you're saying you're not referring to reconstruct this falls within that. This is like a reconstructing exact something bad happened or not ideal happened and now you're doing something to correct the situation so that makes sense reason number two because of health issues. They'll health concerns or issues. Are other common reasons why people seek out surgery. Nasal surgery or rhino plastic is a common procedure for people with health issues. And i myself definitely have a. I think we both have a deviated subject. Yeah and i was told that if that was something i wanted to pursue i could and it's like ha no shot interesting definitely not ruling it out completely but not necessarily getting it today. Another reason would be to change something they don't like so if you don't not necessarily like injury or health issue but maybe for some other reason like maybe there's something you don't like about your body people even if there's no medical reason to change people still pursue this avenue to be able to similar to what you're saying which is to create or recreate an appearance for themselves and maybe it's for acceptance or other types of reasoning behind that but that's another reason and then i love this one reason for which is to look younger. Wow this seems to be very much the The the foothold for many folks in hollywood because a lot of our celebrities definitely have this kind of frozen look in time situation going on which is interesting. Take off years off their parents and then the other reason listed in the blog post is to feel more confident and goes on to say one. Last reason people choose is surgery it can help them feel more confident and give them a boost of self esteem. Whether you're having a procedure to fix an injury correct a health problem or change something you long been unhappy with at the end of the process wants. Your results are visible. You'll likely to feel happier and more in control of your body. That sentenced to me seems really loaded. You'll feel happier I think you might enjoy the new appearance. You have in a specific time period. Ray because our emotions are not stagnant they change and hopefully that you like how the surgery turned out. Sometimes you can go for surgery and not actually like the outcome. So i think that that's just a loaded statement there but you can become happy because of the new found attention of feet psychologists to really dive deep into the emotional connection between our physical appearance in our emotional state of being. I think that that's a very. It's a like a broad stroke statement there there. You can be unhappy surgery as well exactly because you're so many ways can feel it's not a guarantee that changing your identity makes you happier true to changed circumstances for sure but remains to be seen are those. Were definitely some valla reasons. Why people get plastic surgery. But we're gonna ask. Would you ever have plastic surgery. So i growing up and today rightly so growing up. I would say vanity was definitely something that was very big and prominent in my household and unfortunately you know i wish i wish i could say you know. I have overcome being being. Not necessarily i think every time i get a pimple of a blemish how how i struggle with that and not to say that i think i'm in any way perfect or in any way ideal but it is i struggle with visible parents my own physical parents and wanting to. I don't know i guess you could be in a state where it feels like. You have perfection but you don't have perfection because my entire life. I've always struggled with weight. I've always struggled with things about my body stretch. Mark scars like things like that. so the idea of plastic. Shorty was something that i definitely romanticized. When i was younger currently at thirty four years old. I would say i wouldn't knock it out of the park is a no but being a mom to be in really excited to our sign this summer. It creates another complication. Because i would not wanna go through any procedure that could threaten my life and take me away from to be one of the most important people ever make and no in my life which will be our son. So i would say if i needed to write your and if i didn't need to probably not but i need to meaning like if if you you know you never know what can happen in life. Rights originated reconstructive. Like maybe because. I do have a lot of congestion issues. Maybe if my deviated septum that would be the only way to make my nose like allow me to breathe and have my nose then. Maybe i would go for
Do you want potential or perfect?
"I was thinking about this today and it was about potential. What does potential mean to me. Who has it who has the right to put it down. We will have potential. Some of us are clearly on our way to becoming who we want to be but we require someone who in reality is better than us in some areas. Sometimes much better in. I was thinking. How does that really help you in. How does that help them. How do you complement each other when you are looking for someone in essence like you but better the when we say potential. Sometimes i am curious. About what potential means deemi potential in the area that they're close to perfect and they only have a couple of flaws that you know of right now or potential. Because you've seen the flaws but you hope one day they will strive to be perfect or close to it and then this game begins in your mind over and over again. Do i want perfect or do. I want potential. Can i handle perfect. Perfect exists and we all know it doesn't but there are some people who look like they are close. Have to listen very carefully. And sometimes it's a little harder to see their flaws because they want perfection they strive for perfection as well so they will do anything to hide their flaws and then there's the potential what a mess i say love could see the scars mile away can here. It seems like every other day. There's something else but there could just have a good personality. The character sometimes. It's hard to see the potential distracted by the flaws. And i wonder if we took a step deeper we asked ourselves. Is it the flaws that stop less that caused a hesitation or how their flaws would make us look how their flaws would make us feel so then society tells us who passes who fails. There are like this like this. Select this they pass. They're like that the like that. They look like that try again. They fail not judging but they fail as what they say would you say. Are you living up to your potential or are you projecting what you haven't completed in yourself onto someone else to do for you. 'cause it's too hard because you've tried to hard spend too long. You can't do it anymore. It's frustrating. You're not seeing any new results. Why should i try so hard institue in the middle of the road with potential. You might not like this. You should stay in the middle of the road of potential because that is your road. I understand the frustrations and stand the rejections. I understand the questioning the doubts and wondering if it all has been a ways
Poet grapples with coals legacy
"Arsia whale. Poetry is often inspired by nature te growing up. He wandered the hills of rural pennsylvania. It's still possible to do things like get lost in the woods here if you want to. It's still possible to find places where the night. Sky is completely unpolluted by artificial late but the region he's from is known more for coal than treason stars. And in his recent book of poems called toothsome ceelo grapples with this legacy. He says the economic benefits of coal mining came with a big cost for many miners like his grandfather. And great-grandfather both ended up succumbing to complications from work. It's called black lung. Disease urge the accumulation of coal sediment in the lungs strip mining has also scarred the earth and in the town of centralia a coal mine fire has burned underground for more than fifty years in his poetry. Cola wrestles with these losses and people's role and harming the climate and land. Who now can doubt that.

Long-term Unemployment Remains High Despite American Jobs Returning
"Reopen and vaccinations speed up. But there are millions of people who lost their jobs at the beginning of the pandemic and who are still unemployed. NPR's Sam Greenglass reports asked Bud Johnson what he liked about his job driving a transit bus at the University of Delaware, and he uses a single word. Everything. The sights are great. The people I work for the great and it's just a pleasant atmosphere. But he hasn't had that in almost a year. Now. You got laid off from classes, but virtual, I eat two meals a day instead of three. I do go to the pre pantry truth from them. Johnson hasn't been called back yet or been told when, or If that will happen. I am looking forward to coming back. It was a great job in January 4 million people had been unemployed for six months or more. It's what economists call long term unemployment. And we haven't seen levels this high since the great recession that worries economists. Bill Sprigs, he says. Many employers stigmatize people who haven't worked in months. The longer someone's without a job, the harder it is to find a new one. So rather than the typical way you think of a line working you show up at the movie theater. I'm first in line. I've been here I'm next. It works in the opposite. The people who are newly unemployed get the first in line and what's worse, this will likely hit vulnerable workers even harder. Women and people of color have lost the most jobs during the pandemic. They already tend to be paid class and so long term unemployment can scar their earnings permanently. Ah McKenzie study predicted It could also take two years longer for them to recover those jobs. Here's co author Quay Lin Island group, the progress we see on closing the gender gap, even take of it out of the picture. Is so slow. And so then you pause that slow glacial progress and you make negative progress. It was deeply discouraging. There's another worry too. What if certain jobs don't ever come back? How people work and live has been changing dramatically during the pandemic, and that shaken up all kinds of jobs. One of the biggest shifts has been more people working from home. That's had ripple effects for Gloria Espinosa into last April. She cleaned offices in San Francisco. Superbly store. We got a visit from our supervisor, He gathered us all on the parking lot, and he talked to us and tell us that we were gonna be laid off. I was wondering God, why us? It was like receiving a bucket of cold water. That's the way I felt a year later, the employees whose work spaces she wants clean, are still remote. And so Espinosa is still unemployed. She knows there's no guarantee, but she feels confident she will be called back to her old job when offices reopened, be instructed bombs, a necessity to move Chapman on the whole. I think that actually is going to be probably the need of additional workers because we're gonna have to make sure that we can provide that. Extra clean a space that the workers deserve.

Anti-Asian Hate Crimes: Influencers, Activists Are Taking a Stand
"Month in honor of women's history month where featuring conversations with women and nonbinary leaders who are working to address the issues in their communities this week. We're speaking with amanda win. Amanda is the ceo and founder of rise a millennial driven social change incubator for citizen lawmaking because of her work passing legislation for sexual assault survivors. She was nominated for two thousand nine hundred nine nobel peace prize more recently amended has been working to mobilize a nationwide response to the surging attacks on asian americans. Since the beginning of the pandemic asian americans across the country have reported being targeted in three thousand hate incidents according to nypd data anti asian american hate crimes are up nineteen hundred percent in the last year and just weeks ago and eighty four year old. Thai american man was murdered in san francisco. A ninety one year old man was shoved to the ground and oakland's chinatown a sixty four year. Old vietnamese woman was assaulted in san jose and a filipino. American men was slashed in the face on a subway in new york city these assaults are happening during a pandemic where asian americans have disproportionately lost their jobs or had their businesses boycotted response to the recent attacks and the relative silence of bean stream media. Amanda posted a now viral video on instagram naming. The attacks and calling for media attention and public action. Amanda is here today to talk about this wave of violence. And what she's doing about it. Amanda thank you so much for joining us today. You for having me. I want to start with this viral video that you posted on february fifth. What led you to make that video saw. These videos of people being horrifically attacked in my community. I didn't see the mainstream media covering adding see anyone else talking about it. And so i thought to myself if no one's going to talk about it i'm going to use my voice and i'm gonna use my platform and ask people to help me get the word out and over night. Millions of people responded to it so three million people viewed it overnight and then in the following eleven point four million posts went up on tiktok response to it the next business day. The white house press corps asked the president if he has seen the video. Were you surprised by the reaction or were you like. No this makes total sense because nobody else is talking about this. I honestly was really surprised because this isn't the first time i talked about this issue before about race. General and every time that i had posted about race i have lost followers so when i turn on my camera that day to report that video i thought that i was going to lose more followers and i told myself you know it doesn't matter i am going to do this because it's the right thing to do and because people are literally dying to be heard right now. I want to talk to the larger race dynamics of these attacks but actually i wanted to ask why these attacks may be personal to you. You identify as asian american and have talked about your family's immigration story. And i was wondering if you might share some of that story and tell us a little bit about how it is affected your experience of these attacks and your response to them. Yeah of course. I'm so glad you asked that question because so many of these interviews. I've been doing of just been focused on the world. Terrible parts of it. I'm so proud to be hyphenated america and my experience it's been asian-american be means merican and my parents are from vietnam. They went into death to seek life and to reach these shores where they thought that they would find freedom in freedom for us has not only been you know the freedom to exist that persecution it also is the rest of the things that is afforded to us constitution including the right to petition the government and for me at least it's not only a privilege but our responsibility to keep pushing our country to be a more perfect union for me growing up as an asian american. I grew up in corona california. Where darn actually many asian-americans. I remember being one of the very few in elementary school middle school and even still in high school and comes with experience when you are really a minority and you look around and no one looks like you eat the same food that you do and then you grow up and then you see that all the things that you were made fun of for all of us and become really trendy when the communities appropriate at so. That's part of the immigrant. Unfortunate part of the asian american experience. Of course there's this perpetual foreigner stereotype. I think every single asian american has been asked the question. Where you from no really. Where are you from. And while that is and could sound like an innocent question at the heart of it at the root of a is idea that you don't belong and when you keep insinuating perpetuating this idea of uttering a whole group of people what you have are consequences that have resulted in. Lives being lost. Did you experience or did your family experience racism directly in the community or was it this. Pervasive or in addition is pervasive feeling around belonging. I mean it certainly is anxiety about being killed on the street. These attacks have happened. Have been two people doing everyday. Things like walking on the street or going grocery shopping. They one of the things that really stuck with me. In a scarring way was of twenty twenty. A man stabbed family in that stabbing. He stabbed two year old and a six year old because he thought that they were chinese burmese. And he on the record said that he thought they were spreading cova. So you know there's been a threat of people saying well. How do you know if these are really hate crimes. not only. are these con camera. They're also being fully admitted to buy the perpetrators

Dissecting Man United Luke Shaw's Strange Post-Match Interview
"Nothing to talk about that came of course in the job between chelsea united unsurprisingly the media picked up shell. Strange postmatch interview polluting. That was luke. Shaw coming out and saying the. He heard the referee towel harry. Maguire the couldn't give the penalties the penalty because it recalls too much controversy. Power mcguire has come out and said show misheard anyway. My saying all of this leads up to social saying well. The referee didn't give the game gave the penalty because everyone hates manchester united now. The referee admits it couldn't give it because it would cause too much of a fuss and the also admitted that the chelsea website behind everything bad. That's happening man just united at the moment. Because it's then who said. Keep an eye on harry. Maguire and this man united lot because they might give away a penalty dawn. How do we dissect all of this while. I mean where you wanna stop. I would say look bang out of voter. The players and the referee sites which should be strictly confidential in referee sites plaza and players of communication referees. On the pitch not shouldn't get anywhere near in my opinion into an interview after the game. They've got to keep quiet. No good for the game whatsoever. But then you go into all ec enough to the gunman hayes. Massively deflected away from yet. Another poor performance against help six. The only goal scored. Monday united was in russian against tottenham when they lost six waterproof not being quite dire so i think as a clutch and massively done. We'll talk about this running against the the big six minute. But i just want to go back to something that i think we've ever actually discussed on this show steven considering we discussed everything like an unwritten rule. Basically what referees and players say to each other than shouldn't be exposed to the media heard that before knob sister ray thing to do i don't i don't think we'll see is not a referee alive. He's going to tell to a player. And say i didn't give a decision because it could be controversial. I mean that is just ridiculous. Listen i've been. I've been playing and coaching for thirty years. And football and referees matan good ones average ones a lot of incompetent ones. But i'll tell you what they're all honest and they'll make decisions the time they don't go around looking at websites and thank could be a keep me on penalty decision that i'm not going to get because that's what all the time i mean. Just don't don't kid yourself as absolute nonsense and look shaw. You watch the video lou. Shaw as even in the camera. He's behind the referee. The goal at the back of his head to show shawl thanks he had then is beyond me and thankfully highly mcguire chemo and said as much which leads us to the next point which is so bringing this up because surely he should've rectify things on made sure everything was one hundred percent right before he then goes and and spill to the fire by bringing again in the post match interview. All right. let's say for sake of argument. That indeed only gonna so. Scar is checking now. The websites of all the teams in the premier league and how they're influencing the referees. And what that may do against medicine. Let's let's just assume that that's this is what he's doing as far as preparing his team or his own preparation for the game. Why would you come on and say that in public. Will you tell the world that you care about the chelsea website. And what their material is. How does that make you look asa manager. How desperate insecure paranoid does that make you look that. You are concerned about whatever's going on in chelsea website who's running the chelsea website. And what do you care about that. This is honestly of all the things that you can bring up with managers. This is the one that i'm just kinda like. Why do you care. This have to do anything. We whatever's going on on the field and that's your responsibility. What goes on on the field. You can control but this the lusa website is a problem. That's another issue to stevie show has obviously told all that straight after the game yet. You know unless. I can assure you you don't listen to what please tell you. After again. the runner genders thought. So what happened in the game and and the majority of them don't really know again and won. T believe that things and that's exactly what shows done. He wants to believe that should ref said so. He's decided so then he goes and tells these manager after the game. And that's why only staying on the on the interview because all these not saying unless luke shaw has actually told them so shows the one that's all i don't necessarily think the all is because he genuinely tame believed what shows told them but there should be a lesson

But we're we're super pump to take a deep dive into it but before we get to that. We just wanted to touch on a couple subjects and ryan last wednesday right before the nintendo direct rocked. I was so excited. Because i was almost one hundred percent. Sure that we were gonna get breath of the wild or pokemon or metro news. And we got them. We struck out. We struck out if you haven't you happen to be me on twitter. You saw like like the realization that like none of that was happening. And i look. I'll start by saying this. There were a couple of games. That intrigued me. I'm actually looking forward to the new. Mario golf game of the project triangle. Game looks interesting. I love that art style. But i don't know ryan. I was just disappointed. What about you. yeah. Yeah it was definitely. I felt like it was pretty underwhelming As far as what we thought we were gonna get versus what we actually got So i mean again. There were some some nice Games that they presented and whatnot. But i just thought that especially with it being a thirty five year anniversary of zelda. I thought we would get some some big news as far as with that again. What they said they were gonna port a port over night. Work soared scar. Yeah and i never. I never played that one. So i am excited to have the opportunity to actually go through and run that Zelda but i mean again it's it's been it's been a good amount of years since Breadth of wild came out. They've already we already know that breath a while to is is in the works. I thought for sure going to drop it like it's hot and give us some heat there but you know we. We did not get that so it'll be interesting. I mean again. This could be something that maybe in the second half of the year that they looked to drop then as well again. We know that anytime. People are are rushing games They seem to to very much have a negative impact on their releases. So you know again you guys. They know what they're doing They they always had. I feel like they have a solid plan as far as marketing and getting games out and stuff like that so i still think we'll get it this year Yes i thought it was going to happen then but the years not over is still early. My friend deshaun. Hopefully you're right. I just the joy was getting sucked out of me. The longer let direct went on in the close to the end that we got. That's okay though. That's a good. You're right the year is young christina a u and nintendo fan at all. Did you catch the direct. Yes i did not get to watch the direct because it winds carrying my meetings. But i will say that as a very large fan since childhood i straight up do not understand word sword. I'm just gonna put it out there. I would much rather buffalo wild to or just a teaser trailer. Something anything five seconds. Give me a carina time. At least you know what. I mean like i. Yeah i yeah. I don't even know what that is a series. What was that four. Like thirty something. I
There is a Surge Of Coronavirus Deaths in Mexico
"New data reveal a surge of cova deaths in mexico. The country has officially confirmed more than two million cases. An almost one hundred eighty thousand deaths from the corona virus but mortality rates. Tell an even more grim tale over the past year deaths were fifty two percent higher than in previous years. According to the financial times that puts mexico's rate of excess deaths much higher than that of countries such as america and brazil assembled woman to stay lot yet earlier this month. Mexico's president andres manuel. Lopez obrador widely known as anglo said. We are living in a stellar moment. The kovic spike is far from the country's only problem poverty. Corruption and crime are all on the rise but polls indicate that two years into amyloid term. Most mexicans are willing to give him more time. Mexico's president is incredibly popular. Sir burke is our mexico bureau chief he wanted on slide in two thousand eighteen and he still has approval ratings that most other leaders would be extremely jealous off at sixty two percent as it stands and that's all in spite of what looks like a very good handling of most things most obviously at the moment the pandemic. What do you mean by that. Mexico is a terrible record for covert hospitals are full and oxygen tanks in short supply. It's done very few tests for covid. It hasn't provided very much financial support tool for people who are suffering or being asked to stay home not to work the vaccination which is one sort of bright spot potentially insofar as mexico has lined up enough vaccines to cover its population. But it's a very very slow start. That might be picking up now. But otherwise there talks of ten years to get to seventy five percent of the population being vaccinated. I'm currently this has been a problem again from the top. So i'm low has completely downplayed the importance of the pandemic. He has refused to wear a face mask apart from wants when he flew in an airplane to go to the united states and he got covid himself the stars of this year and he reappeared and everyone thought well. Maybe he'll have changed his mind after this. But he reiterated again that he wouldn't be wearing a face mask so in the face of that pandemic response on wires his popularity still so high so he had this amazing vision for mexico in eighteen. Which is why he won with a landslide. He said. I'm going to do a fourth transformation. These big bold plan to make the country fairer and more equitable ending corruption and crime. And making sure there was economic growth where the gains were fairly distributed so that poor people go rich. The reality is slightly different from the vision so far in the two and a bit years. He's been in power. He's been undoing. The reforms of previous presidents and dismantling that system throwing out the baby with the bath water you could say. And then his new initiatives mainly they seem to fail to solve the problems that they put two and then a of third element is that he's really concentrated power in the presidency and some people say that they get things done and other people think they're more evil intentions behind that well. Let's come back to the throwing the baby out with the bathwater part. What's he'd been doing. In terms of reform he abolished prosper. Which was a very sort of lauded conditional cash transfer program for the poor he also reversed education. Reform was much more meritocratic assessment of teachers. A big one at the moment is he's trying to reverse bit by bit and opening of the energy market. That happened in two thousand thirteen so it was open to private and foreign enterprises which make electricity cheaper and greener on current. Neither congress is debating a bill which would favor cfe which is state owned electricity provider. So they're actually go first into the grid. As opposed to the cheaper electric which is often green provided by private companies. This would obviously raise prices and deti energy but it could also breach the. Us mexico canada agreement. Which is the north american free trade pact to replace after another sort of big thing has been getting rid of or proposing get rid of a lot of the autonomous agencies such as the freedom of information agency all these ones keep checks on the government and what it's doing so well he's been tearing all that down. What's he been building up. Will you say his own initiatives. Don't do what they should. He's very dedicated to fiscal discipline. That's a good thing especially in a so-called left leaning president it's also become very counter productive during the pandemic. The imf is telling mexico to spend more so far it's only spent nine point seven percents of gdp on extra efforts during the pandemic and more needs to be done and some people think this is going to need to scarring that there's going to be permanent drop in output caused by loss of jobs and businesses so the recovery is going to be much much slower in mexico than elsewhere. He's also splashed out on bizarre old-economy projects such as pouring money. Pex the world's most indebted oil company. And then he's putting eight billion dollars into a refinery at the time when no other country is building refineries and it's not clear what economic return that will be from that and you mentioned the big transformative plan was in part about ending endemic corruption and crime. How's that been going. Well either jason. That was point. Four percent dip in murders last year and he proclaimed this dip as a very significant success. But that's after a rise the before and frankly during the pandemic you'd expect it to have dropped them. In in other countries across latin america that also suffer high levels of violence that has been the case he also rejected the previous government's tactic of killing and capturing crime kingpins because led to a splintering of gangs. And you might be worth rejecting that. But there's no alternative puts in place. So i think his vision is that you alleviate poverty and crime goes down. That might happen in the long term but it does nothing to sort out the short term problem the problem of the current chapel as opposed to the ones who are still only three years old on corruption. As you could say he's set a good example so has been good political rhetoric. The stiffer penalties on bribe-taking for bureaucrats. But he's unless strengthen the institutions to carry that ford again it's more rhetoric than actual institutional change or heft. The national anticorruption prosecutors overwhelmed with cases and one government agency suggests that the number of acts of corruption actually rose by nineteen percent between two thousand seventeen and two thousand nineteen. It is as you say not a big list of happy news here. I mean when will that's ring down to the electorate. I mean how long we'll mexicans continue to support him for his failures because he really has persuaded a lot of people that he's like them and cares about the he's very popular because of who he is and his message rather than necessarily what he does. The opposition is seen as corrupt on what came before him was horrifically corrupt. And so he's seen the best of a bad bunch by a loss of people. But you know here's a classic populace and a lot of elite azam Against him they see him as a mexican version of hugo chavez. Which i think is a little bit of an exaggeration. But there's this big divides on the mix of policy failure. I'm power grabbing is is worrying.
Taking Care of Mama after a Baby
"No matter how many children you have had their you've adopted or how to surrogate adding another person to your family is an incredible experience and it affects everyone in the household not just for a few days or weeks but in our home we're coming on almost two years with our fourth child which i believe but it feels like we're just really all settling in took a while to integrate the more the more people who are here it took longer to bring forth little one in and my first suggestion is to listen to momma. She knows best. You are the one who will have the inspiration for what you need to take care of yourself and you can get really hard to listen to yourself. I work with a life. Coach named natalie clay and she recommends that you listen to the self chatter. It's kind of a behind the scenes. Talk that narration in your head. That's going on throughout the day. So listening to momma after having a baby is listening to the narrated that you're tying yourself. Are you telling yourself that you or your partner should have specific roles in the postpartum journey. So you might be thinking your head like why. Isn't he getting up in the night. Or why is he getting up in the night. Does he think i can't do this. Are you doing yourself that you should be producing milk or breastfeeding in a certain way Are you telling yourself that your body should be healing a certain rate like. Why isn't my c section scar closing up war. Why am i not wearing jeans with a button on them. You know i. I have more energy to nice. Should be back to my regular life by now type of right. Maybe you're thinking other people are thinking about you a specific way. Typically they're not. My dad always says something. If you knew how little other people were thinking about you you would stop thinking about what they're thinking about you because they're so busy thinking about themselves so true the most humbly thing but i just wanted to give an example. I remembered for my first delivery. So i had my first baby and i was gonna deliver with a midwife and i was going to be so hippie with no epidurals. I'm an all natural mama. And then the baby came and i would never dilate after days of contractions so i got a in and that i still never dilated. And so then they gave me daryl and then babies still wouldn't come out so eventually they rip out with forceps and i was like left with a gaping hole in the bottom of my private and it was a horrible horrible description. I'm sorry i parts but that was also a horrible first delivery and like it was weeks and months of pain. Am i had a family member call in. Invite me to a party in extended family member she said. Oh hey can you bring something. And i was trying to like advocate for myself. You know until. I was like hey i don't know if i feel ready to bring something really something the matter. She was being sincere. And i said will i'm still i'm still healy. And she said from what and she had multiple children and had never had the experience like me so here. I am in a situation where i for. Good reason could stop there and think. Oh she is telling me that. I am being dramatic and that i should still be healing. Will she wasn't doing that right. So not self chatter started right than in my mind but what we can do is we can stop right then and check in with yourself and say hey. What am i telling myself about this situation. Am i allowing myself the time and the ability to have a different experience than someone else. Yes you know what. I think is interesting specifically about childbirth. Is that because so many people have done it and are doing it all the time. Sometimes we can minimize our own experience in. just think. Well all women do this all the time. I should be able to just bounce back. I'm a wimp or we can even do it to each other like well. I've had a baby too. And i didn't take that long to recover and we can sort of start to minimize each other's experience when really we just need to realize that every time this happens it is a miracle and it is a trauma to our bodies and every woman is going to experience it differently and that way we can sort of have our own back and say. It's okay that i'm healing at a slower rate than my friend but that we can also have each other's back and just say you take as much time as you need because this is hard stuff we do as women. It may be that women are doing it every single day. But that is it's hard stuff we're doing every single day as
Biden Holds Milwaukee Town Hall
"Came in office, there was only a 50 million. Doses that are available. We have now by the engine alive will have over 600 million doses enough to vaccinate every single America. So, the president says, By the end of July, there should be enough doses for everybody. By next Christmas. I think we'll be in a very different circumstance. God willing Then we are today. Now. He did say, though, that we're not there quite yet that things aren't perfect, and there's gonna be some rough spots ahead. I thought this was interesting. Interesting question from Anderson Cooper on CNN ST. Stop Giving priority to certain groups and just open vaccine access for well. It depends on how much they have available. I think they're still should be priority groups in case there are not enough for everyone. Every available to everybody. I agreed to president there, there are still people that are of advanced age that have not be able to get the appointment of some of them are getting very frustrated, talked. I talked to some people I said invent last week. It is. It is something that we have to sort out. I certainly think that the people that are in the high risk groups the elderly population who have really suffered the most Riko vid. I think they need to be still prioritized. But the good news is and I agree the president, we will be in a much better position by December, but that's 10 months from now. And does anybody want I said this yesterday. I want to go through what we just went through. Last year. Everything canceled. I don't I want to go to football games. I want to go to festivals. Let's try to get this ramped up as soon as possible. If it's July, let's get shots in the arms by July, Let's start the summer. With a better situation than we had last summer that I think just for the psyche of the nation, people would start to feel like okay, We've got this under control. We don't know We're not going to solve it. It's virus is gonna be around forever. Probably. And there may be mutants, mutations and strange that we haven't figured out yet. But there could be booster shots for that. But let's try to least get back to some semblance of normal. Whatever that's gonna be. Let's get there by the summer. I think that's realistic. Also points to get schools going again. We don't know for certain. But it is highly unlikely that by the beginning of next year school traditional school year in September, we are not significantly better off than we are today, but it matters. It matters whether you continue to wear that President wants to get schools back open, if possible in areas that don't obviously there are some that aren't open yet, at least for in person line. You know, I should mention here in Wisconsin. I thought it was interesting. He made a comment and I can't. I've been doing a little investigating. I'm not sure if he meant this or if it was just an off the cuff. Just saying things, but he talked about maybe school district's considering being open through the summer months per semester. Now, that's I'm not unprecedented, but I would imagine highly unlikely. It's like what happened with scars that a school district would without for that. First of all, you have to get the
Killer Couple, Ray Fernandez And Martha Beck
"Based on his seemingly idyllic childhood raymond martinez fernandez's family never imagined what he would someday become born in hawaii in nineteen fourteen. Raymond spent his first three years there before relocating with his family to the seaport town of bridgeport connecticut. We don't know much about raymond's childhood. But by all indications he and his family lived a peaceful life at seventeen. Raymond moved to spain where he spent time working on his uncle's farm and fell in love with a local girl. The couple were married by nineteen thirty five when raymond was twenty and had four children together but raymond was restless. A young man with ambitions that didn't include raising a family and so by nineteen thirty nine. Raymond abandoned his wife and children and embarked on a military career during world war. Two raymond made a name for himself. Serving i in the spanish merchant marines and later the british intelligence service officials saw him as loyal and diligent noting that he carried out his difficult and dangerous duties. Well raymond had a bright future an after the war he decided it was time to seek his fortune back in america but the trip home was a fateful one onboard. The ship raymond suffered a terrible accident. A steel hatch fell directly onto his head fracturing his skull and causing damage to his frontal lobe when he recovered. Raymond was different. Vince is going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode. Please note vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. But she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks greg true crime fans. May well be familiar. With the body of evidence linking childhood head trauma to homicidal behavior later in life it specifically damage to the frontal lobe the area of the brain responsible for memory formation impulse control and even empathy that has been associated with violent crime but two thousand one overview in the journal of neurology. Neurosurgery psychiatry noted that the strongest evidence was foreign association between prefrontal lobe damage and quote an impulsive subtype of aggressive behavior. In other words the head trauma raymond suffered could have made him less cautious and more reckless raymond's reported personality change following the head trauma suggests that he may have suffered the kind of frontal lobe damage described in these studies and along with this shift in his nature. His career ambitions seemed to evaporate too soon after he was released from hospital in the us. Raymond was arrested for petty theft and sentenced to a year in prison. If the head injury had pushed him toward darkness his time behind bars was the straw. That broke the camel's back. Raymond cellmate was into the occult and only too happy to share his knowledge of voodoo and other black magic. Raymond saw this as an opportunity. He believed that he could use his new supernatural skill set to seduce women but his intentions were anything but romantic once a respected intelligence officer thirty one year old. Raymond was now a conman in the he emerged from prison in nineteen forty six with a fully formed him. Oh after moving to new york city. He wasted no time putting it into action. Raymond's plan was simple a nineteen forties ancestor of what we now might call cat fishing. He scoured personal ads in local newspapers looking for women who seemed lonely and vulnerable. He responded to their ads with charming thoughtful letters describing his military service and his deep desire to settle down. He reportedly started wearing a toupee. Which hit the conspicuous scar from his accident and made him just a little bit more handsome. After sweeping his target offer feet and gaining her trust raymond would steal money jewelry and anything else of value he could find before disappearing into the night most of raymond's victims realizing that they had been conned. Were likely to embarrassed to report him. Raymond knew this only too well in fact his scheme relied upon it. It was thanks to this sense of shame that he managed to go undetected for at least a year during which he conned and knowing number of women
"scar" Discussed on The Classicist
"The one thing. You can't help. But notice is the sim of the more radical elements that we've talked about today. Especially the sort of jack an instinct that in the riots in the statute tomlin's they dried up recently which is noteworthy. Because one of the things we saw over the summer. Is that these things a momentum of their own. It's not as if they were highly dependent on the circumstances on the ground. They win on long after. George floyd death. The relevance of george floyd did the sort of disappeared over time and the movement sort of seemed to be self perpetuating. But now it's kinda crooked To what attribute that i want an article about that national view called biden's brave new world about how suddenly the vaccination appeared five days after the election after we told it would be appearing in late october but when we were told late october. We didn't wanna play politics. Election days pfizer said no and then we found out they were communicating with the biden campaign. And not the trump administration or the media and then we found out from dick durbin. Today that the stimulus yeah. It was held up before the election. Now you know what. It's okay to do it and the same thing with the riots and looting and arson. I'm not saying that joe biden. You know pushed a button stopped it. But i'm saying something like the following. Joe biden said in becket fashion. Who will relieve me of this problem. And then his intermediaries went to various people who went to various people and they said the. Blm antifa look. You guys are on our side. We share similar agendas about capitalism Global warming about identity politics accepted. And you're going to be really well off because bernie sanders at agendas going to be adopted. We're going to get a lot of appointments. That agree with you. But you gotta cool at least until after the election because Excuse me after the election. They said you gotta cooler and before the election the last you know four or five days it started to taper off a little bit and so the idea was Joe biden is headed for a big win and this demonstration and rioting and looting could backfire so far it's hurt trump but people are starting to get sick of it and they could say joe biden ism biden ism empowers it are pieces it so just call it for awhile. And then joke and be legitimately seen standing for security of the suburbs and then after it's over keep it down and the the left probably i knows has said. Wait a minute joe. We were ones that came out in ninety to ninety five percents supposedly on inbounding in philadelphia in walkie -ie croix and we won the election for you and we were the ones that sort of modulated or behavior so we want something in return. So i do think it's non-spontaneous. It's like a faucet can be turned on or turned off final question for you as we look towards twenty twenty one and what trends might await as their. What concerns you. The most will give you the most help. Well what gives me. The most hope is that. It's kind of counterintuitive. So i can answer the two questions at once. What should concern me. Is that the methods by which we access knowledge. Today in social media or google is warped politicized. So if i wanted as they did the other day i wanted to Search gus goan. The new sheriff in l. a. And letting release criminals and i've got the most of the stories that come up as far right mischaracterizes gus gone are conservatives outrage and then you don't you don't get three pages to get the right story and that's to of all these things about covert or biden or whatever so that's scary. And then when i look at hollywood and i find out that their exam from newsome's according laws and then they were deliberately picking lighter color colored actors and actresses because chinese are racist in demand them to do that or i look at professional sports and how colin kaepernick made his money. Or how lebron. James makes his money by boutique. Trashing the culture that allows them to be rich and either being in different tour praising the oppression going on in china then. When i look at the media press conferences and i see them screaming kayleigh mcenany just screaming at him and then i wake up after a nap and joe biden is president. And they're saying what's your favorite dogs sox joe and are you worried about the soul of donald trump. How do you respond to a man. Like donald trump and when you throw an academia and the suppression of free speech which we've seen in my own case and others much more grievously others. I say to myself. Wow this is depressing. All the major leverage of public opinion influence on ivan talking about the corporate boardroom which is pretty hard left now but the media the bureaucracy of the administrative state hollywood entertainment professional sports higher education. They're all stacked for this agenda. And then i say to myself. That's the bad news but the good news is they. They couldn't even pull it off. I mean they had to do have all these. Irregularities and biden couldn't even campaign and so they kind of one yeah accept the election. I i'm not gonna make the argument. That i have proved that the irregularities were determinative but my point is six out of ten. Don't believe the election was was conducted fairly at least according to nate silver six out of ten and more importantly we we may keep the senate and we picked up a lot of seats to the house to the extent that i think we're gonna win the house in what we have on our side we being conservatives we were outspent two and a half to one if you aggregate the congressional on national race so we didn't. We didn't have the money they have the money silicon valley and wall street. Did we have the media. No we didn't even fox. News is not considered conservative anymore. We have the drudge report. No we had all even conservative have flipped over to being liberal. So we didn't have the media. We didn't have the money we just had the people we almost won. And i think that his and now we're sort of aggrieved jacksonians who say you know. What eighteen twenty four was bad and the elite the election from us but wait till eighteen twenty eight. We're gonna come back and we know we're going to do this time. You're not going to catch us blind. So that's something to look forward to his good news. You've been listening to the class.

"Belief is that at least with with Bikini that the worst affected fish died off decades ago and today's fish populations are only exposed to low radiation levels as they frequently swim in and out a plus. These are also areas that have been left alone by humans they've more so than other marine areas. Now one should also note that the occupants of the area around Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands were displaced by the test, some one hundred and sixty seven people I believe and they've never been able to return their dislocation was supposed to be temporary. But but then on top of that children in the Marshall Islands work observe to experience thyroid problems long after nuclear test ended. Now. We've been talking about nuclear testing and and of course beyond that, we think we can. We can hardly talk about nuclear testing without. At least briefly discussing the prospect of nuclear war itself because that is ultimately what the testing is all about. Now, you can make the argument that alternately it's about preventing. That sort of warfare from taking place by making sure you have Terrifying number of of of nuclear weapons in your armament or the reverse is true that you are developing these weapons which may potentially be used. Any nuclear weapon is a potential Holocaust. Within the the warhead. Right I. Mean I guess the advocates of the the pro nuclear armament theory would say, well, what we did is that we did these tests so that we wouldn't have to have actual wars and the tests discourage say the United States and the Soviet. Union. From actually ever initiating a real. Shooting. War With each other the of course, the plenty of proxy conflicts and all that. I mean in a way you can only you know you can never know how sure to be about counterfactual like that people are. Well, things would have been worse if we hadn't had the nuclear threat looming over us to discourage us from going to war I. Guess it's hard to know whether that's true or not but I guess it's also it's just hard to calculate costs and benefits when you're thinking about when the potential cost is like a civilization ending worldwide calamity. Yeah and and that indeed you know to come back to the the idea of the world changing forever. I. Mean that is one of the frequently touched upon aspects of the whole scenario is that it is humanity's ability to truly destroy itself in ultimately within a very short period of time. Now, I know that this kind of brings us to a kind of a dark corner for the end of the podcast and I I know a lot of you don't like considering such possibilities I don't like considering such possibilities either. If you are are troubled by such possibilities I would urge you to consider following A group like the Arms Control Association at Arms Control, Dot Org, or need any number of other anti nuclear weapon or nuclear weapon control or disarm groups, and if you're in a position to use your vote to favor candidates, political candidates who take.

So, this was a one point, four, megaton thermonuclear device launched two hundred and fifty miles or four hundred kilometers into the sky near. Johnston a tall. So it is the largest outerspace nuclear detonation ever committed. It occurred around eleven PM local time This would be In, that region and the thermonuclear sphere burn like a new son in the night sky and if you look up starfish prime online, you can you can see photos that were taken from Honolulu Hawaii at the time and it does look like like a sun in the sky while. Afterwards and our could be seen as well for thousands of kilometers. It it also resulted in in this. Kind of comes down to one of the key findings it resulted in an electromagnetic pulse or an emp something that had been suspected by scientists. But this was really the the proof in the pudding it ended up disrupting the flow of electricity for hundreds of kilometers around it. With its may most of its disruptions felt. In Hawaii itself, it also damaged six satellites, which ultimately failed in other failures might be linked to starfish prime as well. So this was this was ended up being an effect that was far stronger than anticipated. Now now, that's all interesting but obviously, a test like this expands is going to expand on our understanding of the weapon technology being tested. But the side effect here is that the CD one nine tracers released by the detonation allowed scientists to work out some of the seasonal mixing rate of polar and tropical air masses. So again comes down to the fluid dynamics of of in our earlier example. The Ocean and here with atmospheric movement. This also touches on something that comes up with the Castle Bravo test and a number of other tests the castle. Bravo being hydrogen bomb that turned out to be a much bigger explosive yield than was predicted, and this is not just a scientific curiosity and this is something that that had tragic consequences for real people like the people of the wrong up atole who were pretty nearby where the Castle Bravo test was conducted were were affected horribly with by like fallout from the test just because it was so much bigger than the scientists thought it was going be. Yeah, you you see this trend with a number of the earlier tests where the the they don't get quite what they were expecting or you know it's larger or doesn't go exactly the way it was planned and indeed in many cases it means sued people were were were sick and people's health suffered because of these test environments where were tainted by the radiation or still tainted. In some case, the cases people have been dislocated and have not yet been able to return You know we believe we're calling this episode the atomic scar. But a scar we tend to think of is something that is visible but as fully healed and the thing about the. Test is is that it's not so much a scar, but it is like. A thick scab and if we are to to pick at it again. We may bleed in fact we may we may bleed. for the duration of our lives sort of situation. So So yeah. These the kind of comes back to what we said earlier about you know about the the world in which we conduct these tests you know we might think, oh, we're not setting this off in the house we're sending off in the backyard. But ultimately, you know the the wilds of Nevada or some islands off the coast of Australia these are..

"This is atmospheric tests coming down into the ocean bomb radiocarbon falls into the ocean it infiltrates everything from algae to the rings of calcium carbonate within coral rothe. And then it forms this kind of slime. So quote, the living things in the upper reaches of the ocean release organic carbon falls gently to the seafloor, a jumble of proto plasma, Goo Dolphin droppings, starfish eggs, and all manner of d'etre that scientists marine snow in recent decades that marine snow has become more radioactive and the article. He also profiles a researcher named Mary Gaylord who works at the National Ocean Sciences, Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Facility, which is known as no Sam's for short, and that's the woods hole, which is where hooper comes from Jaws Oh. And she measures radiocarbon and everything from Bat Guano to fish is there's a lot about fish is in this article, which is more interesting than you'd think because surprisingly the study of radiocarbon fish eye lenses can tell us a lot like the course of fish I lenses have the same levels of carbon fourteen as fish did when they were still eggs. So it's really good age indicator and this knowledge was used by Danish researchers. In Two thousand sixteen to create an aging metric for these cold bottom dwelling animals, Greenland sharks, which you might have read about them because they grow. So old this helped confirm the discovery that these animals could live to be almost four hundred years old. So a lot of these are pre- bomb sharks and actually this also applies to humans. people born in the early nineteen sixties have more radiocarbon in the lenses in their eyes than. People born before the nuclear testing age and people born in the years since then have less and less as time passes since the since the partial test ban treaty bomb radiocarbon can also be used to date human teeth but there is a very sobering fact that's discussed at the end of Zimmer's article, which is that the proportion of carbon fourteen currently in the atmosphere is actually a bit lower than would be predicted by the known. Nuclear tests in the no rate of decay and absorption by the Earth sees. So what makes the difference like why is there less carbon fourteen than we think there should be and it turns out there's an answer to that. The answer is fossil fuels. Remember how I mentioned earlier that the methane coming off of oil had basically no carbon fourteen in it because the oil is so old, all of the carbon fourteen has already decayed. It's gone. So as we release carbon from these ancient carbon sources into the atmosphere reporting a much higher percentage than normal of regular carbon up there, which actually dilutes what carbon fourteen there is Carl Carl's number points out that in nineteen, fifty four, which was the year of the Castle Bravo test humans emitted six billion tons of carbon dioxide that year quote in two, thousand, eighteen humans omitted about thirty, seven, billion tonnes which is more than six times more As Willard Libby I discovered this fossil fuel has no radiocarbon left by burning it..

"Dismantled, some parts were kept for ceremonial purposes like the main mast and a forty millimeter gun were put on display on the campus of Indiana University Bloomington and I know some of its anchors were put on display at various museums and memorials, compasses, wheels, and all that went to places where where you can honor the fallen ships. This really drives home. This metaphor of the ship is a fallen beasts like the warship thing wants dead. You know certain parts are kept for like you said, ceremonial purposes or display purposes, magical purposes, and yet other things are harvested for the raw meat or bone of the creature right and the raw meat or bone would be the steel here. The SMA up the bulk of the ship was put to low background uses in Indiana va hospital got sixty five tons of low background steel from the Indiana and that was used for their own their own background radiation counting facilities but then Lynch writes in addition to the VA hospital. Facility several large sections of the hull weighing a total of two hundred ten tonnes were also fabricated into a room. These applications were probably never imagined by the original designers of the Indiana. These sections of the hull are still being used for the original purpose as a shield, but instead of protecting against artillery shells and torpedoes the new purpose is to shield radiation detectors from the background radiations originating from cosmic atmospheric manmade in terrestrial sources. So what was once armor again, emissions is now armor of the entire universe in its radioactive contents. The room was first constructed at the University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City, where it was used for many years radiobiology research, and then it was finally moved to the Richland facility in nineteen, eighty eight and the Indiana was not the only battleship that became a source of low background steel. So after the armistice in nineteen eighteen at the conclusion of world, War One, the German high. Seas Fleet was ordered to report to an allied base known as the scope of flow where the naval vessels were supposed to be handed over to the British Royal Navy..

"Is something that has come up on the show a good bit before obviously, we've had to talk many times about the the very real. Danger potential civilization, level threat, and the real human costs of nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons testing. But to I wanted to focus on a couple of interesting in lesser known environmental effects of nuclear weapons testing specifically something that I came across as it pertains to industrial metals, and then we're GONNA get into some other scientific territory as we go on but quite apart from any just straightforward chemical effects on the atmosphere I think it is pretty fair to say that the the the human departure into the nuclear weapons testing era and nineteen forty-five was really sort of a shift to moment for for humankind is a species. Yeah and I and I. Feel like there. There are very few. Things. That have been said they're they're very few audio sample certainly that summit up quite as well or or as haunting as those given by j Robert Oppenheimer in nineteen, sixty, five on the television documentary the decision to drop the bomb broadcast. As an NBC white paper I imagine most of you heard this before I heard it's a sampled and used in music get. It it shows up in Comic Books Literature in it the American theoretical physicist and father of the atomic bomb. He sometimes referred shares the following regarding the first successful detonation of an atomic bomb at the Trinity Test in New Mexico on July sixteenth nineteen forty five. He he said quote we knew the world would not be the same a few people laughed a few people cried most people were silent I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture the bag evolved Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi armed form and says, now I am become death the destroyer of worlds I suppose we. All thought that one way or another. It's a difficult thing to imagine working on that kind of researching away feeling that it is your duty year your necessity to aid the allied cause in World War Two but at the same time knowing that you are working on something, the would unleash an age of terror in human history. Yeah. I mean absolutely a a weapon that would as of this recording has only been used twice in war which on one hand you can. You can say thankfully has only been used twice in war but at the same hand, you can say tragically has been used twice in war We'll. We'll get into the. Just. The destructive capabilities of of the bomb as we proceed here, and of course, we've covered it on the show before to varying degrees but I wanna come back to the quote that that Oppenheimer is his deploying here. So I if if you're not familiar with it, basically these are these are the figures are in this you've got Vishnu one of the principal deities of Hinduism the the blackout guitar or the Gita is sometimes just shorten to is part of the Hindu epic.

"You know bring a tray of cookies and convince Lydia somehow that this was her idea to walk off into the woods. Yeah see I think I think the shown is capable of it because you know what caused her to snap in the first gaze is losing her family, and now that she improbably has this, you know post apocalyptic family that she loves so much that she would be willing to do anything including psychological. Warfare. Against a child per to keep it i. thought it was in that like envelope if she'll do anything to keep our community safe at this point. Sure. Yeah. What Lydia fingering Henry Scar like just just really working her her grimy fingernails in there and like Can I lace an unleashed? This can I can I can Can I find a moist in their part and Henry's dislike sitting there taking it. who directed the scene I wanNA know like. I like maybe a fifteen year old girls like I was GonNa, grab my boyfriend scars because I don't know what the Hell Do. I've been the walk with the dead I. Don't know how romance works they hinder shouldn't be like what the fuck are you doing get your fingers wound is supposed to be like. Like the mask because united, they like stitch up the back of the that's is why go? Yeah. Like I I'm not a lace. These things up I know this is I don't know it's I thought it was very. It was very bizarre way the play this weird fucking romance. I mean, the episode is called scars. So maybe they just needed to fixate on this for a little while and I don't know they're trying to do with that team I. Think you're right. I think they're trying to draw some kind of thing about it's not all scars. That's that's that was a preoccupation throughout the fucking episode Judith. Closes with a scar, not unlike Henry and wondering what's going to heal and not bad we'll get the X.'s like yeah, right right right. Right. So I think yeah. But also don't have her sticker dirty fucking Zombie previously, Zombie encased fingers in disguise fresh wound and I, don't know if you look. At some point he says like I gotta get I gotta get up. GotTa Walk Around and make sure these stitches hold is that proper medical advice? Are you supposed to try to pop your stitches when you get them just to make sure they're gonNA old? Do they have run a lap after the doctor puts them in No. But I guess the thought is like if you're about to be forced on a march to another community that's far away. They WanNa get you. You know it's not like you've got a choice to just lay up for a day or two they're going to kick you out. So might as well try it now where the medic is still there and you can redo it then get five miles up the road and just bust up you know Bust Open I I'm sure Daryl could carry him. Or Derek fucking. So him up. Yeah. Just like Oh. Yeah. With rabbit. Get some squirrel gut or rabbit gut in a Fishhook and I'll have I'll. I'll have y'all fix passed up man. Okay moving on to Judith Telling Darryl that she wants to help they're kind of sitting by a river here. I don't know win Alexandria got river. A water feature they did they did they got a windmill and guide the guy a river runs through this community. Now, they got a little mill pond setup. Sure. She she asked him to stay. She wants to help him. He thinks it's more important to move on and stay isolated so that Alexander will be safe and. Judith throws, Judah starts lobbing a bomb. The bombs says, what would rick do which ww rtd and scores pulling there too. I think it's cute. They're they're kind of sitting exactly like each other here both knees tucked into their chest I'm not sure what they're getting out with that but there's definitely. Some bonding happing here. I think it's I. It might what I assumed is that that's advice for the only children is like to get on their level and assume their posture mirror body language. Nice. Thought that like this is another example of Michigan. probably read the book or two about parenting and just being real good at it but this is. And Judith Oh it's Daryl. Yeah. Well, then okay he's terrible parenting I'm sure he's just he's just a child. So he's as her body language consciously because that's how he's feeling on the inside I was wondering yeah if if they were trying to compare to children here. It you know I I think more of Daryl than that. Certainly. But yeah emotionally he's got a lot of work to do. Yeah and I also liked the idea that judith is attracted to people who level with her and Darryl's deaf you know Michelle. Shown Jasmine shown that's the hilltop endanger. Of course not. So everything's GonNa be fine. Darryl's like I don't know maybe. And he doesn't tell her everything obviously because that's not what his mom her mom wants but Yeah Darrell Darrell turns out. He's a pretty good. There's a couple there's a line later on this episode that sketches him out to be this dad and I kind of like thought the hell the talking about but I started thinking. He's kind of a father figure to Henry he certainly father figure that Judith Year Yep So yeah, I guess that's that's why not Darryl Good Dad I'll go along with it. Sure. All right. The flashback continues Gabriel's playing the quiet game with the kids they found. shown sad the rick doesn't didn't get to see it and then she and Jocelyn. Talk about how children the future essentially, and she realizes Michaud can't live without knowing what happened to rick and encourages her to go look for him. And I think this is an amazingly written scene and it really uses Ms Wesley at our full powers because terra, her character and true blood is one of these characters where like you want her to be your girlfriend or you want her to be your girlfriend's girlfriend because she's just utterly reliable she is challenging in the best kind of ways she's lake is excellent listener, but she's also there in like an action capacity if you need her and she. Just I felt like she effortlessly slipped into this role and you know this is a really well crafted speech like her using a crazy coincidence of shown finding her with not ever giving up on rick and it really win. It turns out that she exploited Michaud now her like one of those vulnerable points and exploited one of oldest trusted legitimately lit a fire in me like I was fucking stop at this woman and I think that's an excellent use of casting like..

Why why didn't you say so sorry. Just say Alvis touches as. I think I was scarred for life. Actually Brody Brody when we got for Life Brody. So. When I was eight years old, I saw the movie jaws. And ever since I've been terrified of sharks and it affects whether I go in the ocean or snorkeling. But when I was a little kid after seeing the movie in my rule, my head. Greenish blue carpeting and I was convinced that there were sharks in the carpet and I wouldn't put my feet off the edge of the bed. And so I would have to jump off my bed and run out of the room because I was afraid of the carpet sharks getting me. So, to stay, I, haven't natural. Sharks. Carpet sharks all time. What does that mean? You'll go ahead. Tell us what does that mean I can't say my son is sitting right behind me luck. Oh, please he's eaten carpet. He. pushups. Something like that. That's terrible. He does push ups and that's not what you meant. His. Microphone and his camera off. please. I'll do it. You. Know, it's getting interesting in here. Embarrassing Interesting. Scary how were you scarred for life on when I was a kid? We had neighbors and we had a backyard and all the backyard's had these alleyways and people would have these closed lines that would they would hang your clothes out every morning. So it was a couple of doors away and there was a neighbor. And every morning you would see on the clothesline just a bunch of tidy whiteys. But the tidy Whitey were not cleaned very well. skit mom. So whatever they random through the wash and they were soaking wet and they were put on the clothes line to dry. And ever since then. I couldn't I had to stop when I was in control of my own money and my own underwear I stopped buying tidy Whitey, I never wore them again. I despise them I can't look at them these days more because of the clothesline from a couple of a couple of houses away true story. So. Gandhi. Are you scarred for life? Yes, there are so many things that have but I remember my first starring for life. I was probably four and the only move the first movie. I can remember watching was three men and a baby, and it had been out for a long time. So the person I was watching it with. Me and she said there's a scene in the movie where you can see ghost because somebody on the set apparently jumped from this building and died, and that human is in the movie like the ghosts in the movie you actually can see this person I don't know if that story is true or not I see nate's nodding his head. so He's heard this. Is You. have in the corner every one of my whole family went to sleep after telling me that story and I watched it alone four years old and I remember rewinding it over and over and seeing it and I have a problem with ghosts ever since then I hate the dark I hate goes I couldn't sleep that entire night what I try to wake my mom up so she could explain it to me. She was like going to bed you're fine. Go to bed. It was terrible that stupid seen in three men and a baby really ruined my life guard for life. SCARF. Approve. It was real or is this. Story, the story was that because in the movie Ted Danson's characters and actor said that that was his cardboard cutout if I'm not mistaken, but it doesn't look anything like him. It looks like a little boy. Hiding in the corner. Up in the corner of law, it's so creepy. I. Hate that isn't there something like that and wizard of Oz to. Yes. Yes. There's someone hanging themselves in the background as the in Munchkin land right in the way in the way back if you. Munchkin land suicide hanging. You'll see it. In the beginning that scream that the girl that's out was a real scream like that's actually her because they were yanking around and she broke her ribs while she was doing it so that screaming well oh my gosh. Are All people scarred for life to story? Oh and on the Beatles album I think the the revolution nine number nine. When you reverse it we I a album. You hear the guy say I buried Paul Great all day there was like cl- a cranberry sauce but I heard it as a kid I literally I had on record and I would wind it backwards on. Just. Very blow same thing with Wa to hear the same thing. was. Friday scarred. Did you say your scar? Well, mine is really weird. So I the mine was as an adult really. I, went to the very first time in my life I ever remember having balsamic vinegar. I got sick I got food poisoning and to this day I will not eat Sam Deniger at any kind for any reason I know that that's not why I got food poisoning however I related to that and so therefore, I can't eat it makes me sick to my stomach. Yeah. Yeah. I'm the same way with eggs and ham. I had when I was growing up my mother said, oh, your favorite green eggs and ham. Well I'm GonNa make green eggs and ham today for breakfast. Okay. I wasn't feeling good anyway at a flu or whatever I got to the table and there's green scrambled eggs and Cam. And I just threw threw up on the plate like. So now if I see anyone ordering eggs and ham anywhere green or not I get sick I'm scarred for life. I did another time I was scarred for life was when I walked in and I found my one of my best friends murdered. Stuff genuine. Do it. There's a scar that's in your top anyways. Top anyone but.

Look at that trying attainment a little bit I feel like it's getting there. Almost getting. Laying down.

So I I don't know if you want him to kick it off and coming here. Yeah. You know if if something's something's scarred Scotty for life, it's gotta be it's gotTa be. A messed up right now we WANNA hear it. I don't know I'm afraid. Of. Oh. Hey, guys. Hours will pale in comparison to whatever he's about to say yes. So Scotty what scarred for Life Oh so A couple of days ago one of our serial killer podcast listeners sent us a box of cereal and the return address was Tamarac Florida. Now, I don't think about my grandparents that much anymore because they've been gone for a while but they lived in. TAMARAC. So it brought back some memories when I was probably ten or eleven years old I was in their house walking down there tile floor, and in the reflection of the Mirror I see my grandmother in her room bending over completely naked and it's just it's. In my memories, it was like this and her boobs were literally touching the floor. and. He wasn't really a small woman. So and. It's just something that I can never forget anytime I ever think of them or anything related to my grandparents like when I see a Publix I, think of that because at Florida. So it's something that comes up from time to time. It's scarred me right here. There's lots of things in my brain and that's one of them. Yeah I watch granny porn no no no sometimes by accident but I never search. Warrant any porn on accident Scotty. Yes, sometimes, when you're watching something, there's a knock on the door and an older woman will walk in and that's by accident I don't know that. What? You're funny. I don't like I, I remember my grandparents has I paused for I don't know maybe five seconds I'm like, no, no this is not something that I want to see and I just. Walked. Away. So scarred for life. Also, your grandmother bend over from the rear correct rest dragged the ground. That's correct and then when I was a little older, I was probably fifteen or sixteen I was coming out of my room in my Parents House and my dad just came out of his room at like four o'clock in the morning completely naked turn the thermostat up and what? I remember that too I. Don't want to but I have no choice but to remember it. Every time. You see a thermostat. You think your dad no. No. Every time. I see my dad I think if make it and I don't WanNa do that. Data. Who else was scarred for life talkative. Danielle scarred for life. When I was I don't even know I think it was eleven I watched little house on the prairie, which was a show back then and there was a two part episode where the little girl guy attacked by someone in a clown mask and I remember watching the first part of it and getting scared. So scared I wouldn't sleep in my room, and then of course, I had to watch the Second part the next day right couldn't glutton for punishment. So I did and my sister was about to be born and my mom said, I wouldn't sleep in my room. So I didn't sleep in my room for months and months it got so bad that my mom went in my room and she cleaned out my room and put everything in a garbage bag and said you're not getting anything back until you sleep in your room. And because I was petrified of clowns from that moment on I sucked in the hallway I slept anywhere. But my own room because I thought clown was going to come and get me and it was says, that's how my this is why you hate clowns. Guard for life for clowns that was it.

It was about to put it into the toy chest and on the toy sailor hat, a centipede runs off and crawls up my arm.

When somebody entrepreneurs and And recently, just as I'm working people and watching. People who had insane amounts of success at one time, and then who has happened a failure a bankruptcy. Whatever. Fill in the blank. The second time around long time they really really struggle and start looking at. Why are they struggling? Because they had this your success? It's almost like they're they have fear. An embarrassment of like I failed in the past mate and. I kept talking about this with some guys on our team is like it's almost like they've entrepreneurs scars and make an interesting. Is that US as the person with through the process and the failure and the you know audiences, ups and downs hit hard. We have the scars like these emotional scars, but I think sometimes we feel like those scars on our faces and other people can see him. But it's interesting. Is this people don't like? Those are just things that are there inside of your yourself that are. Because they're there. Because you feel like there there, you can see it. Keeps you from having success the next time because there's so much fear around these scars, these these things and as I was as I was talking about this this morning. I shared a story this Kinda ties things together a little better for you. They're not going to name names or anything, but there's a guy and he was a successful politician. Top this game like doing everything amazing. Just people loved him in. Him In that in that spot like and this is not like national politics I. Don't know anybody. National Politics I don't fall politics at all, but from Mike. It was a local person right and you saw him on the news and all sorts of seventies, IQ's damages charismatic and like everything was awesome and then. He got caught up in the site.

Want to meet him and talk to him, and as I talked to make, it was funny, not funny I shouldn't say that it was interesting to see lake. The scars. He'd God from this infamous thing. Were so deep that like it was struggling to progress in other parts of his life business, and all these other things because of the scars from this this thing that didn't work out right right and it. Wasn't good, but. Three years later and. Almost surprised that I knew about it, but I did but. You carry those scars in this conversation with you with you came in the way that I'd seen before confident in all sorts of things. I probably would have done the business deal with him, but because he had these these scars. We. Certainly didn't have all these things they were gone and I could feel it, and like that uncertainty me from due to deal with him and and I remember thinking after I finished calling. I can tell still carrying around the fear and the embarrassment and the shame of the single I. don't care about that thing. I couldn't care less. Move on in your life and come back because they. That person that I saw on TV. You're approach that way. I would have done this deal and the same things tune entrepreneurs like there's someone who I know. WHO's super successful who? Had A funnel blew up in the money, and then it went away, and now they're kind of struggling, and what's interesting is like I kind of know that backstories, then other person things like that, but with that person to make persons of an inmate I a Rockstar I think they're awesome at. They're amazing, but as I as I see them interact with other people I see the scars of that that this person has or keeping them from from from taking over the next thing, and it's funny, because like I don't think nine point. Nine percent of every single person in the world has any idea those scars. Are there for this person? But because he knows that they're there, because he no, he failed. He knows that things disappear and didn't work out the way it. He has a sphere, and as he's approaching neck situations struggling because of that because of the scars and I think it's interesting. That he's entrepreneur scars that we have a first off their visible. Nobody sees them like. I you know some people may be aware of, but nobody sees them except for you, and so because you are so where these things that keeps you from having the confidence success. You need to move forward and it was funny I was talking to. an entrepreneur who is about to go through bankruptcy. They're freaking out there so scared and and. And I kind of asked him why and they say you know because I don't want those scars, but they said afterwards if I give bankruptcy like what's my wife going to think I'm in my in laws and my family. Always all these things and I was like he's understand that like bankruptcy. They think about this failure for entrepreneurs like the founding fathers. This country gave us bankruptcy as a gift, so entrepreneurs like us would risk and try and move forward and roll the dice and hope for something like if it wasn't for that gift, you May. It's a gift from the founding fathers. I believe it's a gift from God like it wasn't for that thing. American succeeded a nation. Everything that's been amazing would've happened if entrepreneurs didn't have that risk if it was like, do you a banker? You go to jail to pay off all your debts. People, taking the risk out of our taking the risk, but because like worst case scenario is bankruptcy. We clear off your balance sheets. You start over like that's the worst case scenario. That's the greatest gift we have and. We hit that and we go through it, and also we have the scars I went through bankruptcy. Naples fear than youth. Next things like know that that should be a negative thing that means you try, and you attempted, and even attempted `success in went away. You've had success. I remember I was doing a deal with. This guy who super successful that he's consulting things where it's like five hundred grand a day with a minimum of of of ten sessions, so it's like happily bucks to get this guy to work with you right and a chance to hang out with him I was talking to him in talking strategy, and he's asking my story and I'd tell my story and. I'm pretty open with things. Now I realized that my scars or would actually draws people to I live I. I spent an hour on stage, talking about all my failures, because it draws people towards me and so. which is kind of maybe the point at the end of this podcast, but? I sure the my ups and downs, and as I told the whole thing. He's like Oh good I'll Mike. What do you like well, you cycle the Mike. What do you mean cyclopes like? Oh, he's like well. Entrepreneurs cycled at least once. I refuse to work with them. What is? Recycled means you build something up and then you crash. He's like. If you haven't cycle the guess what you're still, you're still read it. You're still drinking your own. Kool aid you still. Believe that you are the most amazing human on earth realize until after you've cycled the, it's not just. Are the greatest thing to walk. This planet like there's.
