"Non do i believe that. Actually a creature lifted up an entire mountain and flew across the subcontinent. No at a factual level. I don't believe it. But i don't think that's what the story is about. The story is really about the power of devotion about the power of commitment about the power of love. And i think that's what the story is trying to communicate and people who read the story on listening to the story that emotional level and when you ask people what is the value deriving from religion and mark the truth claims of religion in some ways. You're missing the most important component. Which is the emotional relationships. People have with religions and religious religious texts. I think that is such a powerful argument and just be personal a little bit. I is very helpful to me as someone who has raised in a fairly religious household who then said wait a second what this is this is nonsense and then came away from it saying no religious belief is bunk is lose delusional and then later in life came to say. Wait a second. This is doing something for people. And that's okay. But i think the analogy to the experience of reading a novel or watching a movie and being emotionally moved by that things that are not true. The fact that they're not true doesn't make it less legitimate as an emotional experience the other fascinating thing about religion is people who have religious beliefs in general are healthier. There's a great research. I never heard of the out of demoing that you write about. Tell us about that. He has so. There's been a variety of research studies. That suggest that people who have religious beliefs actually have better mental health better functioning better lifespans and in some of those one particular study in demand that actually suggested that people who are religious. I'll let people who are not religious by as much as ten years which is sort of the difference between people who are smokers and non-smokers. They affect not trivial. But you don't actually have to go all that far to look at research studies. I know in my own life. Just in the course of the last several months of the pandemic many people. I know who are living. In india for example right now which is going through a particularly difficult time of the pandemic the worst pandemic becomes the more religious people become and the more the more people turned to to their faith as an anchor protects them against the challenges daily life in many ways. This is the way to think about self deceptions in general not to think about negativity to ask the question. What is the functional purpose that this belief is. How is it serving a purpose and if you start with that question you ask you want. Get a very simple answer. People are living lives of great uncertainty great unpredictability great pain and they're looking for sources of comfort looking for sources of stability a few months ago. Dan i was traveling a few hours away from my home. In washington dc. I suffered a retinal detachment. I was unloading a bike from the car. This handlebar spun around hit me below. The i don't know of course the next twenty four hours. I could literally see my vision in one eye disappearing in front of my face. And i knew what this was. We have a family history of retina problems. I couldn't find a doctor was really. I was panic stricken eventually found someone in a city that i had never been to in my life. He very kindly opened his practice for me at nine o'clock in the night and he told me that if we went into so during the next several minutes i was going to lose sight in july altogether and at that point. I did what all of us do in this situation. I didn't look at yelp reviews or doctrine views or find out. Whether there was a second opinion i put all my faith and trust in this man as he turned out he was a wonderful doctor. But if you'd been charlatan. I would have been just as likely to put my faith in him because my faith was not because of him. My faith was because of my own ability. My faith in him was an outgrowth off my own concerns and fear and panic and in some ways. This is the right way to think about self-deception in general which is to ask the compassionate question. What is the origins of where this is coming from. What is the gap. This is filling people's lives when we looked with contempt at people who have self deceptions in many ways. What we're forgetting is we are not in the foxhole with them and were we in the foxhole with them. We would very likely think exactly the same way they do. Yeah yeah even that way of looking at things which is not asking is this claimed true. But what is this claim doing for someone is to me a really powerful way to shift our thinking about it but you also talk about this in terms of nations because some level if you look at earth from above there are no nations you have landmasses but nations are themselves a kind of a fiction letting their functional fiction tell us a little bit about about nations self-delusion. Yeah so imagine for a second. Is the old story of the proverbial anthropologist from mars. But let's see there's an anthropologist who came to us from another galaxy and this person travels across vast realms of darkness and space and time and then come to this tiny little speck of a planet in this tiny obscure solar system and finds that there are some eight million species on this planet but this one species human beings have divided up this planet into one hundred and ninety different territories and believe so fervently in the reality of these territories that we have armed with nuclear weapons and they're willing to destroy one another and there's little planet we have over the integrity of these nations. Surely this anthropologist from another galaxy would say this is a grand delusion. What is wrong with these people that they believe not just at the invented. These things called nations. They've drawn these artificial lines in the sand but they believe in them so passionately they willing not just to destroy each other. They're willing to destroy their entire planet or the integrity of these lines. So i think when you think about delusions in this way that delusions are inventions of the human mind. You would have to concede that nations in some ways are very profound delusions and exactly as we've discussed with other elements of the delusions that we've talked about the delusions that nations do produce great good and the ultra produced great harm so the fact that we think of ourselves as americans we think of ourselves as belonging to a common country allows us to accomplish. Great things together allows us to march shoulder to shoulder with one another. If there's a natural disaster in texas somebody in maryland can say. I feel connected to the person in texas. Let me see how i can help. Weakened respond to common enemies common threats. We defeated fascism defeated hitler in world war two because we stood together as a nation of nations accomplish great things because they have these bonds that hold us together of course even a cursory glance at the history of the twentieth century shows you all the ways in which nations can do terrible things and the delusions of nations how they can lead to war and genocide. How can lead to terrible terrible things. This is the paradox. self-deception can simultaneously accomplished great things. It can also produce terrible harms. D- how do we mitigate those harms when they do arise sean carr has answers coming up after the break. It's a case that has haunted jefferson in new jersey for more than thirty years on a snowy january night. fourteen year. Old tommy sullivan did the unthinkable. He murdered his mother in cold. Blood set fire to their house and then took his own life out of the flames of this horrible tragedy. Investigations revealed that tommy was himself part of a satanic cult sparking a nationwide hysteria now known as the satanic panic this monumental moment in american culture led to communities nationwide and forcing draconian measures to protect their children from what they perceived to be the devil's influence. Even the catholic church was convinced this was a case of demonic possession. On the new podcast. The devil within the truth of the grisly murder is finally revealed.

"I came to see that sometimes logic and reason do not accomplish what logic and reason set out to accomplish. The inexorable conclusion of logic and reason is that we are inherently self delusional in some ways. I think the belief that we have. I think many of us and i certainly had this for many years. Is that by thinking very carefully about the future and asking what it is that we wanted. We can find the best way forward. And i think to a large extent that is true it is absolutely the case that logic and reason and science can point the best way forward however as were interacting with ourselves and interact with our fellow human beings it turns out the logic and reason sometimes produce counter intuitive and paradoxical effects where in some ways. You don't end up getting to where you want to go. Yeah now. I'm gonna take a step back here and talk about how i didn't make the move from studying engineering to practicing journalism. Well in many ways. I was not a very good engineer and i really enjoy studying engineering very much. But i love the concept. I love the idea of thinking clearly about something and thinking logically about something. I've always loved riding. Are always loved communicating. And after i left my engineering finished my engineering degree on a lark really. I took an internship at a at a newspaper. And i found that it was transformative. I realized that. It combines. So many of the things that i love to do eventually came to stanford university a master's degree in journalism and gravitated eventually to science journalism and then specifically eventually to writing about the brain and writing about human behavior. So to my mind it feels like there's a logical through line Throughout my life but actually what you at my life there's a lot of jagged edges and ragged changes. Well i mean. I think that's true of any interesting person. Every person has a has a jagged resume. A set of squiggly lines. But i mean to some extent what you're doing i it's a transition from doing so making something to what you're doing now. Which is somebody's reverse engineer saying. Trying to get under the hood figure out how things work. Was there a moment that sparked you into pursuing this concept of self delusions and delusions that we all have yes in many ways it started with a story and the story involves in very unusual call that unfolded in the united states. In the nineteen seventy s and nineteen eighty s so donald lowrie was a balding middle aged guy living in a small midwestern town and he prided himself on being a writer he always thought of himself as being a writer and sometime in the early seventies. He did this very unusual thing where he invented various characters. Young women he called these women angels and then he did something really surprising. He started writing love letters in their voices. Two thousands of men across the united states When the men rode back he ran sort of ensnared them in a group that he called the church of love some of the men believe they were actually corresponding with real women. Some of the men fell in love with the women they were corresponding with in. its heyday. The of lab had more than thirty thousand members across the united states. Here's the part of the story. That is astonishing when donald larry was finally arrested and brought to trial on charges of mail fraud several members of his church of love showed up at his trial to defend him. And i found this absolutely astonishing once the khan is being revealed. Why would the mark's show up to defend the con man. How can you have a bigger example of self deception and in many ways it was the starting point for this book because i started out by asking the question. Surely these people are just crazy. They're just not who would show up to defend the person who has denuded you. But the more has started to unpack and unravel the story of the church of how i came to see the members of the church of love with the greater of compassion with a greater amount of empathy and eventually got to the point where i basically said there but for the grace of god go. I and i realized that self-deception was not just affecting the members of the of love self-deception effects all of us even affects me. Which of course came to me as a huge shock as somebody who had prided himself as being the ultimate rationalist one of your ideas one of the big ideas in this big idea book that you write about is that i think it's connected to the church of love story is that self deception can sometimes be good for us so tell us what you mean by that and maybe get a little bit more on the men who were defending this conman. What were they getting out of that. And what were they getting out of these what. I would look at as a rational person as fake relationships so the members of the church of lower fell into different categories. There was some people who said you know. These letters are just an entertaining diversion. Which just playing a game here. There are other people who basically throw away the letters and said we don't want to have anything to do with this but there are other people who actually sounded corresponding they would write back to these quote unquote angels and build relationships. It would pour out their hearts and pour out that grievances and pour out their sorrows to the women. You know that when the when the case came to trial and donald lowrie was put on trial the media fixated on the fact that some of the letters had involved salacious material it involved nude photographs and various things involving sex as it turned out for donald point of view. Sex was actually not the most powerful way that actually help people become members. What he wanted people to do was in fact the fall in love. He wanted people who actually wanted relationships with the women. Not just simply get something tawdry or something salacious for the men who fouled most deeply in love with a women. The letters from the angels were often not describing anything sexual they were describing that day they will talk to them about routine and mundane things that happened in their day. It was almost like the kind of thing that people genuine relationships do on the end of the day. When you're lying in bed with a loved one and you're sharing what happened in the course of your day. Your loved one is sharing. What happened to her day or his day. This something deeply intimate. That happens where you feel like. You're in a bond with someone you feel like you're die with someone you feel close to someone. Many of the letters praised the members told them. I think you're a good person. I think you're a kind person. I think people have underestimated. Do you believe in yourself. How faith in yourself things are going to look up for you and over. The course of many members came to see these letters as essentially being a life jacket. And what's interesting here. Is i think this is how real relationships functioning alive. The real people and allies also become life. Jackets it just in this case. They won't drill relationships but they felt like life jackets. And i think when the members were called upon to testify the trial they were not defending the con man. They were defending the life jackets that they had come to rely on and these life jackets had become so important these relationships that become so important to them that they didn't want to jettison them. You know there was a wonderful movie. Some years ago called the truman show For your listeners weren't familiar with it. Truman is in a reality show. But he's the only one who doesn't realize he's in a reality show his wife his best friend. His co workers the people in the lebanese town. They're all actors. He's the only one who's in the reality show. But he doesn't know that he's in the show now he eventually pure the deception. But it's a very difficult for him to do it. And the reason. That's difficult as not just because deception was skillful but because throwing the deception overboard required him to give up the relationships that were the most important things in his life over and over again this. This metaphor comes up in the book. We've become dependent on certain relationships whether those relationships are personal where they're political whether they have to do with nations. We become deeply enmeshed in the stories of those relationships and we will go to great lengths to defend those relationships. So when you ask how can south deceptions be useful. Think about the relationships in your life that are the most valuable relationships think about the relationships. You have with your partner to the relationship that you have with your child the relationship that you have with your friends the closer your relationships to someone the more likely you are to have self deceptions in those relationships. And the more. You're likely to see those self deceptions actually be functional. The character in your book. Joseph who is one of the men who was enmeshed in this seeming khan and he has a pistol larry relationship. This woman named pamela and at one point she sends him a photograph. He puts the photograph on his frame. She sends him a pebble. I think that she had found what like walking around somewhere. And so he has these kinds of artifacts and it makes me think there really is a real relationship. And i think that the the i want to come back to relationships here in a moment but i want to say that the reason we do this because in partly because evolution embedded in here. Both explicitly and implicitly is an evolutionary argument for self-deception. Why don't you walk through that. And then we'll return to how that evolutionary impulse affects our. I mean. I want to say real relationships. I mean i guess joseph had a real relationship affects the really that we have with people whom we've actually married or have children or friends or whatever that's right so at the core of the book. Indeed is an evolutionary argument and it starts with the basic principle that the brain is an organ that evolved over hundreds of thousands of years of evolution right and so in many ways our brains have evolved to solve the problems of adaptation and survival that confronted our ancestors so the brains that we have are the results of those struggles at our ancestors had in other words to make sense of the past it turns out that when we think of our brains and our modern day we tend to think of the brain is being a computer we find to think our brains are basically designed to see reality accurately to take in the world accurately to process information accurately. This is what computers do it. turns out. Our brains are actually not interested in reality. Our brains have one goal and one goal only which is to help us adopt the world. We're living in and to survive. If it can accomplish those things by seeing reality clearly our brains are more than capable happy to see reality clearly however if function being functional surviving of adopting of doing well requires not seeing reality. Clearly our brains are just as willing and just as eager not to see reality. Clearly let me give you the simplest example that i think you and i certainly know firsthand. Dan but i think many of our listeners here will also know first time. When my daughter was born several years ago. I had the sense on the day that she was born that this was just the most miraculous thing that happened. Not just in my life not just in the life of everyone the planet but in the life of the history of the planet. Your was nothing. That was more important. There was no miracle. That was more spectacular. There was no child who was born. Who has ever more special than my daughter. Many people who become parents note this now. Anyone who's a rationalist would say surely it cannot be the case that millions upon millions of parents can look at that children as being unique and special bitcon logically all be correct that their child is the most special child in the universe. But that's the way it feels when you become a parent especially i think when you become a parent for the first time now you would ask. Why would emma lucien put in our heads. This delusional belief about children. And of course when you think about the question you ask the question that way. The answer is self evident. Parenting is hard. It's difficult it's frustrating. It's costly it's time consuming. If parents were to actually away the cost benefit relationship of having children many people might logically conclude. Parenting is really far more trouble than it's worth. And so in some ways. I delusional beliefs about our children. Our design in some ways to hide from us. The cost benefit equation. You can see very quickly why it is from an evolutionary standpoint. The delusional belief the delusional love that parents have for their children. It might not be seeing reality accurately but it's extremely functional for parents. It's extremely functional for our children and it's extremely functional for our genes. You summarize brilliantly at. I mean it for those of you who are into evolutionary tattoos. This is worth getting tattooed where you say. Evolution natural selection ultimately doesn't care about what's true a cares about what works and that is it right there and one. Just start thinking of it that way to me once. I started thinking about in that very explicit way. It's like well their delusions everywhere. So let's keep with relationships. You have another idea in your book where you say. Delusional beliefs vitally important to making us. Happy talk about it. In terms of our romantic relationships partner relationships so a wide variety of studies have found that when we have positive views about our partners even delusional positive views about partners we are likely to be happier relationships and in some ways. This is not a surprising idea. Have you believe that your partner is kinder and more beautiful and more intelligent than wiser than other people. You're more likely to say. I want to stay with my partner. I wanted to be with my partner and turns out that delusional beliefs the optimistic beliefs. The positive illusions. We have about our partners. Just like the positive allusions. We have about. Our children are one way that we can buffer ourselves against some of the challenges that come within relationships relationships come with frictions they come with challenges their temptations outside of relationships the way in which evolution has figured out a way to keep us within these relationships keep us within these bonds in some ways is to encourage us to have positive delusions about our partners. So let's say dan now that the pandemic in the united states is easing. Let's say you. And i went on a road trip this coming year and we stopped by every wedding. That's happening in the united states this coming year and aas couples pitch that as a netflix series. But that's another story so for on netflix series. We go and check out every wedding. That's unfolding in the united states and we ask couples. It's very simple question on their wedding day. We asked them what they are odds of getting divorced. Now if you were logical if you're rational if you look at the statistics he would say there's no reason to think i'm particularly different from anyone else. The odds of getting divorced or about forty to sixty percent all marriages. Depending on their second or third marriages they have about a forty to sixty percent of ending in divorce. I expect that i have you know. Let's say a fifty percent chance of getting divorced. i would bet you two things one. Almost no one on their wedding day will tell you they have a fifty percent chance of getting divorced and to someone who tells you on their wedding day that they have a fifty percent chance of getting divorced. That is not a person who is about to embark on a very happy marriage. I found it really interesting. And actually somewhat heartening as the lesser of the two people in my partnership. That partners tend to over ray. Essentially their romantic partners day. They look at their partners through rose colored glasses. Tell us a little bit about that research. I found that both interesting. In heartening interesting is not just the over at that partners in general but they tend to over at that partners on the dimensions that day themselves. Care about so. Let's say for example. Dan that i am somebody who values empathy and compassion. And let's say you. And i were no relationship and intimate relationship. We were married to each other. I might see you as being more empathetic and compassionate. Not just that other people think but then you yourself and again. This is not surprising. The more i have positive more positive views about my partner in the dimensions that i care about the more likely i am to say. This portion is actually for me. I'm likely to be happier now. I just want to fly one thing. In almost every case we can talk about deceptions. The subtitle of my book is the power and paradox. The self-deceiving brain because there is a paradox. Here there aren't is even a self-deception keeps us happier in relationships. Even as it helps us. Bill longer term relationships. South can also keep us in bad relationships. There are relationships all over the place where people stay in abusive relationships where they deceive themselves. About how good their partners are about. How the kind that partners are you know. You have people who say yes. My partner beat me up yesterday but he really loves me he really cares about behaviorally kind to me. The same force at the same force of self-deception that can keep us happy. Relationships can also keep us in unhappy relationships. This is the paradox. it can simultaneously do terrible harm. Which is i think the way. Most of us think of self-deception the contribution. I think of my book is that we've ignored the part of self deception where it can actually do to us. Is there a way for individuals to at least make that kind of assessment on their own about you know is this is harmful delusion or is it a is it a useful delusion. I think it's really difficult for individuals to do this. Do this on their own. I think there's ways to do this. But i think both in walden somewhere stepping outside yourself. The first is to ask yourself. What are the outcomes of myself. Deception is the outcome of my self-deception my delusional belief about my daughter. does it. prompt me now to be a very dedicated farther to be a carrying father. Look out for my child to help our be the best that she can be. If those are the cases of the outcomes of myself deception about my daughter that i'm out would facing i'm compassionate. I'm carrying on giving more than i have. I would call those good delusions on the other hand. If my daughter god forbid turns out to be a serial killer and i myself deceptions about her. Prevent me from seeing the terrible harm that she's doing that is not a good thing. The second thing that i think we can do is ask others to give us feedback so i think others can see ourselves deceptions more clearly than we can. So if other people tell you look you're heading down path where your self deceptions are causing harm to. Other people listened to them carefully because in some ways they can see you more clearly than you can see yourself. Yeah and there is a paradox. also there's kind of an adjacent paradox between accuracy and buoyancy. You talk about some research that showed that people who are depressed are actually better observers more accurate observers of what's really going on more in touch with reality so that that there's a paradox there as well should we be encouraging people to be accurate. I think much of the twentieth century. Dan people thinking about mental health and mental illnesses tended to assume that people with mental illnesses was seeing the world delusional elite and people who are mentally healthy realistically now there are certain mentally unassisted in fact do involve very serious. Delusions and illness like schizophrenia. For example you're actually seeing hallucinations hearing voices those are not the delusions that i'm talking about but over the last thirty or forty years research actually shown the people what certain kinds of mental illnesses are actually able to see the world more clearly that people who are quote unquote mentally healthy so people with some forms of depression and anxiety for example. Turn out to see the world more realistically than people who are mentally healthy. Now this reasons a really interesting conundrum. Do you tell people. The most important thing is to see the truth and to see reality correctly. Or you tell people the most important thing is to be well adjusted and to be happy and it turns out that much of what psychotherapy do doing is in fact be helping people see the world through roasted lacerra at least put that troubles put fat traumas into perspective by which i mean. Moving it off center all of us have been through a terrible pandemic dispatched year. People who in some ways might be seeing reality accurately my world tell themselves something incredibly unexpected happened to us. Fifteen sixteen months ago it's transformed our lives. Millions of people around the world are dead. Tens of millions of people lost their jobs. The consequences are terrible. Met me shrink into myself and keep from going out because who knows when the next pandemic is going to come. Because truth is the next pandemic could be right around the corner and yet many of us don't do that. Many of us are saying great. Liberation is now finally at hand. We can go about our lives in some ways. We're bouncing back but we're bouncing back in some ways by hiding from ourselves. The true consequences are true. Scope of the terrible things that could happen to us. This is again at the paradox. From the point of view of the brain from the point of view adaptation and survival is it actually functional for creatures to dwell on all the terrible that could happen to them or is it actually more functional for us to actually be optimistic. Evolution has in some ways answer that question basically saying being healthy involves seeing the world optimistically coming up after the break daniel.

"Has to be right. Aristotle taught us that knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. Is there an upside to delusion. I didn't think so until i heard the story of joseph enriquez in the early eighties. Joseph hit rock bottom. His mom died. His dad got sick. His business flounder. He felt more alone than ever before which is saying something. Because joseph had pretty much always felt alone he didn't have any close friends and he never dated not because he didn't want to but because he was too shy to insecure too easily misunderstood. He put his name on a few mailing lists for single. Men hoping to meet the kind of woman he could settle down with but all they ever got with letters. Advertising mail order porn so he resigned himself to low minutes but then one day he got a different kind of letter. It was from a woman who said she was looking for a friend. She explained that she lives in the illinois. Woodland's at our retreat for young women who all escape troubled pasts and we're now trying to make fresh starts with the help of decent kind man. Joseph road back soon. He was corresponding with several women from the retreat learning about their lives telling them about his occasionally. They'd ask if you could send a little money not much just ten or twenty bucks enough to cover the cost of writing supplies. They called it. A love offering and joseph was always happy to chip in after about a year. He got a letter from a new woman named pamela. She said she'd grown up poor. Married young fled and taken refuge. At the retreat she enclosed a picture of herself big guys gravity defying farah fawcett hair. Joseph was smitten. They started exchanging letters letters that were for the most part pretty bland. She asked him for advice. Told stories about her pet poodle g g but they could be deep to. Joseph share things with pamela that he'd never told anyone he wrote to her about the shock of his mother's death and the pain of his father's illness and pamela wrote back to say that she got it she cared for ailing family members herself and she knew what a burden. That could be how lonely it could make you feel. Joseph always believed that he possessed many fine qualities sensitive kind loyal but no one had ever paid enough attention to realize it. No one had ever taken the time to get to know him. No one except pamela pulled that man laughing. That's pamela turns out. She wasn't a doe eyed innocent with farah fawcett curls. She was a balding moustachioed middle aged. Man named donald lowrie here. He is being interviewed by sean. Carbon johnson in a two thousand fifteen episode of this american life was difficult to come up with these characters and the characters bore you. Tell me about it as a writing project gonna forty grab rollers. girl resist. Wish you from what she likes to do. It was fairly easy after awhile. For twenty rule bit rough but next eighty were not hard at all. And you enjoy making up these. I loved it and he loved the lifestyle that came with it. You remember those love offerings. The pocket change pamela and the other women asked joseph to send so they could buy stamps or whatever it added up because don wasn't just corresponded with joseph. He was writing to more than thirty thousand men and was laughing all the way to the bank. He built a printing press so he could crank out letters at an industrial scale. He drove around and rolls royces and jaguars from his twenty car. Fleet a fleet service by a full-time private mechanic. It was good to be done or lived.

Yeah, we're way are definitely not divided in our love Totally totally on the same page. So, folks, Aziz, I move into the conclusion of our last hour of discussing these. We have kind of Look at that What is happening in our nation through the abstract lens of political science and psychological studies? There is something happening between us that is giving us the illusion that we're divided. When we're not really that much, So we're going to take a couple more callers and then Jim and I are going to drop some facts on you guys. That'll knock your socks off. Steve. I wanted to have you get some final thoughts and you've been so wonderful and you stayed with us for so long. What do you think in terms of the argument that the issue is not whether you're Republican or whether you're Democrat or whether you're a trump supporter or whether you're not a trump supporter? Whether you're someone that just inherently believes that the world would work better if there was a strong leader, One strong guy that didn't have to worry so much about all of these pesky tell me. What did you just do it exactly What do you think about that? Steve? You know what? I have a problem with that, because that's the Messiah complex. Yes, save all of us, right And it really comes down to us doing the work for ourselves. Right between integrity with ourselves. I'm gonna go out on a limb. Steve, would you happen to have a career in law enforcement? By any chance? You know what? I actually work with law enforcement. So, Yeah, you have the voice of a compassionate A police officer. And the thing that's so important about listen to voices. A lot is that a police officer has an incredible amount of noise wasn't voices all the time. Police officer has an incredible amount of authority to the right and the idea is You know, If you have kindness behind that authority and compassion, you can look them tow have the authority want them to have them to be yet, But yeah, it's it's the other situation that That has that has the effect. Steve Thanks so much. Thank you. Steve on DH and Conrad, I want to thank you so much for calling. We're going to move on ongoing. Take this is the last call is Sam from Eagle Rock. Sam. I wanted to get to you because you were so so patient and you stayed with us for so long. But give us a little bit of your thoughts. My thoughts dwell on characteristics in terms of Democrats, Republicans. As a person who's been a teacher in the school system. Thank you for your service for your services. Yes, well, you know it was I did what I could, but I'll tell you, it's really a struggle. Dealing with very leftist Democrats sort of policies because they're such an emotional attachment to this idea that only the right thing to do this is going to help. And they will cling to absolute failed policies and refused to acknowledge failure were there In the midst of it, And I think that this is something that the contrast Republicans. Little more pragmatic sand bailing. Sam, Have you ever heard of Sean Car? Vedantam? I'm gonna throw something out here just totally off the off the cuff the it's called the hidden brain. I'm not allowed to say the name of another radio station. Otherwise, women will get mad at me. So I'm just going to say that on other stations that you can listen to you can here and you can hear the podcast. But there's a guy named Sean Carr Vedantam the hidden brain, but basically, he Has one podcast, where he talks about exactly what you're talking about this idea that people that tend to be Democrats, and it's just a reality that tend to be more liberally minded. They do tend to have sort of Ah ah, A. They're not result based in other words, they they think, And this is a good thing, because, yes, a motion based more creative more about what's that end result going to do for everybody and then people that tend to be Republicans tend to be more conservative. They're like result, if I try anything, and it doesn't work. Can it let's do the new thing? Well, if Sam is a teacher, he's living in an unequal system. That's very different from a lot of other societies. The school district are you with us? Debunking chance down, I wass But no more. I'm actually doing construction right now, if you you know, it's very much a contract, an emotional attachment and its idea. Maybe, you know, you gotta get it. I got to say this real briefly. You know, when when we hear from a soldier who has done time in the forces, you know, we habitually say thank you for your service. We should really be saying that to anyone who was ever a teacher and I tell you because I don't know if I necessarily agree with that. I think a large degree teachers have allowed things to disintegrate because they have not stood up and said no, this is not right. This is ethically and morally wrong. These policies that they've embraced and allowed to be steamrolling down their throat. And now, Sam is that authority bias on its own. I mean, basically, people go to work, and then they got the person that's the principle that's in charge of the principal's got the superintendent in super tenants got these people and it's all this authority these layers of authority. Isn't that by its very definition authority bias. People come into work and you know, maybe they don't totally agree, but they just keep doing it because, well, that's what the authority says to do. Well, it's it's also that is you're talking about a many layered bureaucracy. You are talking about something that espouses. A worldview that is wholly different from what it is in practice. Sam what's everything right now is and this does happen sometimes is that you're unpacking some very complex deals. You're talking about some heavy concepts. And even to entered and I know what you're talking about, Brother, I do. I don't just what you're talking about. But to introduce this in a way that our listeners would completely be able to relate to would probably take another 90 minutes And we just don't have that much time. But one of the things that will say is this, Sam, you are, in my opinion. Correct. There are too many restrictions that are political on the concept of teaching. And this is part and parcel with one of the reasons why we're so concerned because Teaching should not be something that is governed by one's political views. It shouldn't be..

"Mobile news. Reach day. Thank you, Chris. Right now. We'll go on to rob Connor. And I'm a big fan of chocolate milk. Robert, I think you can kind of help me out. Talk a little bit about that, right right now. That's right. Jay and Bey. I would if I was a driver, and she was chocolate milk as well. But I don't think that's one of the options but joining us right now. From the American Dairy Association. 2020 milk person. Jill who Ian He's a farmer from Plymouth, and she is going to be the one that presents the milk to the winner. Of today's race. Jill, first off, what is it like knowing that you are the person that will be giving the milk to today's winner? I am so excited to be ableto hand that ice cold glass of milk to the winner. And although it's different this year, and there is going to just be myself no rookie this year, I know that everyone at home can celebrate at home in the winner's circle and raise a glass just when the winner does, and I so look forward to the excitement of the winter enjoying the trip now the type of milk that you present Depends on who wins the race earlier this month, all the drivers submitted their choice of milk. So let's talk about some of the drivers and their choice of milk because you run through some of the options as well. Your hole and Fat free 2%. So it's what about some of our favorites like Connor daily Conner Daly has chosen factory. He is the on ly one in the race today that shows fat free. But 24 other driver still small milk and 28 chose 2% so and liquor and not that Fuller is heavy. I am ready for whoever wins because I'm so excited to carry on that tradition and again. Chocolate milk is not imaginary chocolate milk is a excellent recession. Nutritious milk product. However, in this race through tradition, we're keeping it as a white male. But any milk that you choose, and it's in the dairy case is exploding with choices. That's Jill who, and she is the 2020 milk person. A farmer from Clement, but also going to be presenting the milk to the winning driver. Sides and be chocolate milk, Not an option. What are you going to do? Thank thank you, Rob and Jeff. What you gonna do, huh? It's all good. I'm on chocolate milk as much as anybody. Hey, Colton Herder is a guy that probably still drinking a lot of milk. He's only 20 years old is the second full year on the IndyCar Series circuit, And right now he's standing by with our own J query. Colton Herder is making his second start in the Indianapolis 500. This comes from the 10th position. Let's go back Colton Herta. So a year ago a year ago may at least but very early on in the race, An issue knocks you out. How much did that fuel you for this year? Or did you have to go out of sight out of mind? Oh, yeah, I think it was very frustrating. I think way. Had a really good car last year Like I know, everybody says this card of wine, but I You know, I don't know if it's Carter win, but is very Sean Carr. This year again. I think we have an extremely strong card between the strong program with Andretti and and with hard engines, So I think it is tough when when that happens, But I think you get over it. I understood. It is my rookie year in Ilha plenty years, hopefully to come back and defend that did the limited practice time relatively speaking affect you at all? Or do you have a pretty good feel? No matter what Circumstance comes your way, how your car is going to react. I I thinkit's the same thing for everyone. So we're all we're all kind of lacking practice from what it usually is, but it's definitely not. Ah, I think it's still a bunch of practice days and a lot of time in the car before the race, So you know, I think I am very confident with a car. I think I think you could do two days in the car around here and be in and you know, obviously all the guys are really good so they can get up to speed with car and be confident with the car, but I think just the minor minor details of like doing extra session in the extra hours of Just finding those little little bits of comfortable idiot the car and just get dialing abounds in just the perfect degree. So I think yes, we're ready for the race, but I think the more track time you give drivers of faster it'll keep getting Lastly, let me ask you this. I've always wondered this at any point. Over the course of the day here, like in a long practice session, other cars on the track. Do you ever get a chance to just chill out in the car and you're just kind of relaxed and hanging out or you constantly working? Depends what you're doing. I think ifyou're doing race front and you're going to be running a lot of laps, and you're going to come in for short changes, I know qualifying. No qualifying. Seems you probably have 15 20 minutes between changes so And a lot of guys probably usually looking the iPad to go through. Data are fall asleep or what? Not, but, yeah, I think for me, I just try and get the fans blasting as hard as possible Strain trying to stay cool. And then Yeah, I think you do get some time to chill out, though. All right. Stay cool today, and maybe it will be some cool milk at the end waiting for you. But we wish you the best of luck. Thank you. Sure, hope so. There you go more to come on the other side, and it's all about the Andrettis. Disappointing. Will that turn around today? The hole and ready basically at I AMs Thing has been disappointed since 1969 can that turnaround with pole sitter Marco and ready.

"sean carr" Discussed on Shut Up I Love It
"You just turn the heat up in the house really. I know I do like on the floor like a like a little heater blowing at me and so it just adds a little bit of temperature. But I've been doing like you know all kinds of things like like online. There's a lot of APPs online they're offering at least a week. If not a month for free you just do a lot of really nice classes guys. Try them so then. Let's let's use this opportunity to kind of get back to the root of this show and talk about some things that our listeners could shut up in love during this quarantine. Why don't you start Stephen? Sure I'm so as Megan mentioned you know if this goes on long enough we may run out of content to watch. I don't think we're quite there yet. I have been watching a very popular anime television series That I'm sure people have heard of but maybe haven't checked out because anime has a reputation among people our age But it's called one piece and it's about a group of Friends who come together to become pirates and search The seas for a mythical piece of treasure called the one piece but the main reason that I recommend people shut up and love. It is because there's almost a thousand episodes of wow. Yeah so at the date. It says nine hundred ninety nine and it has been airing almost weekly ever since. How far are you? I'm not very far at all. I'm only on episode thirty six. She's this great nation right like it's not to crank it out fast or isn't it. Japanese animation is such an industry That they must. It must be Surprisingly easy it's probably I doubt much of it is actually hand-drawn. Probably a lot of it is computer assisted like I most animation is these days most animation But it it looks fun. I I'd heard of the show you know came out in one thousand nine hundred nine like you said. I've never watched it before. Even though in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine I definitely was watching things like dragon. Ball Z POLKA mine. I don't know why I never watched one piece before but it's It's it's slightly more mature. It's not it's not for like little kids The content is a little above that. It's probably still sounded preteen. Oops just now yes. Oh well that's why I'm always hesitant to recommend any kind of anime because almost every anime has a character who is a total pervert who's obsessed with boobs and I don't know why that is such a popular. Yes that's a trope of the entire form. I don't know I have. I have a question for you as someone who's walked through the room. You're watching it. You're watching it original with subs. Yeah I'm watching it with English. Subtitles is that what's been recommended. Or did you not like the DUB or so when the show first started airing in the US it was brought over here by a company called four kids entertainment and they're the same company that was That brought pokemon the TV show over here and it's in the name for kids so they do a lot of changes to not just the dialogue but also they will change the visuals. They will like add things. You know these. This is about pirate so people carry guns and four kids for their English Dub. They would paint over the guns with other objects and so. I just don't know if the dubs that I've seen around our that DUB or there's a newer English a that was made by fun of nation which is not as messed with but I just don't know which doubles available so I'm going with the subject to be see to get the you know the the authentic experience great. What about you do have anything? That's been keeping you afloat your mental state. Yeah so this is something I started doing before. We were all Corentin but this is something I would recommend people to do. You know while you're quarantine is a great thing is learn a language. I started learning French in two thousand seventeen and it's ended up becoming something I was really obsessed with and I and I do pretty obsessed everything you just said in French to embarrass. Rao Bad it would sound But there's so many great like Ways to access language learning Right now I think more than everyone knows kind of like dueling go as the very like basically APP that you can get and and that's that's fine for kind of the basics but there's so much stuff like what I use most often. There's a website called Otaki. Which it's online tutoring and it's online skype tutoring with like anyone in the world and pretty much for any price at any time. Like I've been working with the same tudor who lives in Haiti for almost two years and lessons cost about a dollar an hour at ten dollars an hour so like you can find utterly like professional or they just took a. I would ranges like definitely if you're paying less like they're not certified teachers like the the the Haitian professor that I have arc be like. He's a student. He's he learns. He's a linguistics student. But so he doesn't have like really official like certification but he has we work on work sheets sometimes and like we'll do like activities but then sometimes we'll also talk for an hour or it's just like you know something's going on in our lives and we just need to talk about stuff then it's an opportunity for me to a lot is going on these days talking on and also it's kind of fun because he doesn't really speak English so it's a great opportunity for just to speak French so like I don't know I I would. I recommend people just like learn a language. Because it's something that it's very ongoing. It's something that doesn't really end like no matter. How good you get your still figuring stuff out and you can then once you get down the basics like I listen to tons of podcasts in French like that's my favorite thing. I'll spend hours like playing games on my phone but I'm just like listening to news or culture. I read books in French. And so like you just around the house come by There's there's so much to access once you learn another language. I am really interested in Africa and there was so many countries. I did not know a lot about because they didn't speak French and now I can learn so much about those places because you can access their news. Yeah so there's I recommend that shut up and love languages man. Yeah I yeah and for me I just. You know mentioned exercising at home. It's an opportunity to meditate daily and connect to the quiet place in your heart not to mix with the movie a quiet place but the mouth at that movie and delayed you need to find a different quiet points and you know and I. It spent a lot of time with your dogs. The dogs and the animals and the cats. I'm sure like they all just stoked that. How are your animals reacting to you and J's constant presence agreed? They're into it like they're very social so like they're super into it. The dogs have the backyard when they can still do their tricks. And then they go on family walks with us so they get a lot of attentions. There's constant like influx of treats happening back and forth because just facetime equals treats. Shark is learning a new trick He's you know he's teaching him how to set and lift his paws but it's a slow process but he did learn how to roll to the right and roll to the left quickly Yes he's doing great rollovers and you know it was his time to start becoming a therapy dog and the we can win it. All went down was his first senior visit scheduled. And of course we didn't want to kill any seniors so we cancel that but you could've just sent him with a with a note on his collar. There you go spoon chartres. I think he could still carry a couple of irises on them. Don't you think probably boy? Probably because he wears a full suit when he goes out so the virus stays on his US through the suit. And you know and so those were like really. Those are the great things I am able to write exercise. Spent time with your dogs and my boyfriend which is basically my favorite things to do. One thing I miss is like you know the feeling of the world not falling apart like miss that feeling of just illusion of safety. I guess bright. 'cause there's no safety right. It's definitely an allusion right but but you feel it but you. Now it's just like it's it's you know it's struggling with the sense of doom and finding the ways to deal with it and you know Improv like I. I miss not seeing like you know I miss. I miss doing a proof with direct to video or going to see a show that my friend Chad does or something like that and I feel like a lot of people are probably in the bad place because that's been their ways to socialize and to self realize and it's it's really hard on people. I imagined to miss out on that. Yeah I mean. We're all pretty lucky. Because we are quarantining with you know people that we love. I don't know if like if I lived by myself or if I lived with roommates that I don't really like that much I I don't know I could call a fancher and ask him what that's like. Yeah Brothers. I see Andrew. Does he come over? He pretty much comes over every night. We've we've decided he's part of our quarantine. We figured like worth three people we interact with. Yeah I was going to ask if there's anything that you think you might try in the next few days anything that like. You're considering I- Xbox has the service called the game pass where you pay a subscription fee and they you get access to almost like a hundred games that you can play for free and I was scrolling through there and I saw a new game today called. I think it's all ashes cricket. I guess it's a cricket video game cricket so that would not work for me. Not The bug. Sasha this sport is bore giant cricket on the road when I was walking the dogs this morning. So it's in my head so I might try that because we re we recently learned about cricket and I wonder what a cricket video game is like. Yeah what about you got anything as you had mentioned like? There's a lot of sites that are offering like thirty days free all that. Kinda like all that free stuff So the website slash streaming platforms. Shudder is offering thirty days free. They normally just do a week And that's a horror platform So we're gonNA download shudder when you get those thirty days to watch all these like cool horror movies. They have like demons which is like a jallow horror films from like the eighties. And then there's a couple of core comedies. They're just looks. Look through a lot of cool stuff like humanoids from the deep. You know. We're big HOORAH Fan. So I'm excited to pull the trigger and check out that stuff. Pasco Sean Carr Sean Kearney. Shaun Carney that he's a car needs via things about it. Sure turn is a big user shudder. Yeah catch up with us in the middle of all this disaster. We're planning on being with y'all through this. We're not abandoning you yet. She just predictions for Kobe. How long is it? GonNa take or anything like that. Sure Yeah you have any ideas Thinking about it well. I think it's going to change the world forever but like in some San sort of the nine eleven. Did you know like some things will never be the same like maybe handshakes fashion? I don't know yeah. Do you think the way that this country the United States works will change at all. Because we're GONNA rent is due soon right. The end of the month is coming up. People haven't been working for weeks. Do you think the government is going to expand the social safety net in any way or do you think that they're non actions just GONNA lead to a lot of people dying not just the virus but uh of exposure to the elements and they will have to have to keep expanding. I mean part of it does this because trump wants to be reelected and this is his biggest enemy is you know. Cova nineteen so I. I think the will continue expanding because it's not in society's interest it's not in government's interest to see the society completely collapse and fall apart and like the robberies and murders to go like through the roof like. I think I think they will continue doing something like where there's going to be enough or not probably not enough. But they will try to do something. That is my prediction but It's easily the quarantine a version of the quarantine. I feel as easily going to take us through the end of somewhere version of it..

I don't know the whole thing, but this is basically the only song is written, and it is a monster smash hit and people are like so can you do that again? Did did he write this? Or does he? Oh, okay. Yeah. And then and then they got Billy Ray Cyrus to be on it. I guess, who's more talented Billy Ray Cyrus, or Miley, Cyrus. Billy Ray Cyrus infinitely more town. Two hits. Twenty two years apart.

We're famous for that. All right. The Zion question is what I was watching a bunch of analysts night, I have no idea who's who was who on NBA TV. And one of the guys s another guy what's the worst case scenario? What's the low end for Zion Williamson, and they named a player, can you guys guests who they named? It's not a bust, but the player who a physically dominant, NBA player, who is very, very popular in a dunking machine and just never really got there. But close. Yes, he Dominique now this guy was very good. Very entertaining, polarizing people. Tune in to see him. Physical freak but two decades ago. Shawn kemp. Yeah. I was just gonna say Sean Campbell damning. They set this analyst. I wish I remember his name said he goes, you know what? If Zion Weisman doesn't develop the rest of his game by Shawn Kemp didn't develop the rest of his game and ate his way out of the game which I'm sure there's more control over players workouts, inhabits and off the field. But they said the worst case nervous. Shawn Kemp Shawn Kemp had a nice career. Just never got there. God, he could have been so great. I think Shawn Kemp got there he was he would have been NBA finals MVP. I mean he's he was the best player. I know people say, yeah. Crazy he was the he was the most dominating player in that finals when the bulls played Seattle sure Shawn Kemp. They had no answer for Sean Carr's best season. He averaged nineteen points and eleven rebounds, which is fine. But that's not that's not going to be good enough for Zeile incorrect. The fans are not going to be happy with that. He was six, I'm also and was in the MVP race. You know that's not a lows that pretty high low ceiling. I just and that's what the analyst said. He goes. Is not a bad because this is not a bus. It's just like with all that promise and physical dominance. It never got to their yeah. He's going to be better than Shawn Kemp c kept got to game six against the best team. Maybe in history of the game. I feel like they had an unbelievable team in Seattle. Right. But he was the heart but they had an unbelievable to. Yeah. Payton that was unbelievable deadline shrimp.

"About because of that, you think that as you say, Sean, you don't think you're going to be the victim because you're not big, you're not Microsoft. You're not one of these big companies. So I'm just too small for that. How much money has been lost? How many people have had their businesses in turmoil and chaos because of this? It's a wide spread. Threat, and there are companies that I've been to some of the most significant companies that you would expect what have the right security in place, and they'd be able to protect themselves, but they've been victimized is because the networks are so vast. And there are so many opportunities for an adversary to actually get into the environment. And there's no good way oftentimes for companies tax detect the attack. So in other words, they put their defenses in place, but the adversaries are able to get by the defenses with enough time and effort they'll get in. And then the companies are not doing anything to detect. What's happened behind the firewall? And when you've got an adversary this in the environment for days or weeks or months completely undetected something bad's going to happen. So I would also guess anywhere. Kind of talking about the idea that small Disney sized companies think what's going to happen to me because they're gonna target guys. I also guessing part of that attitude is how would they ever find me versus someone else? I understand. I hope you explain this different. Right. Is that nobody's necessarily looking for or smaller medium sized business? They're just looking for a vulnerability. And if you offer it they're gonna take it. No that's true, Greg. There are groups that are very very targeted and they're looking for specific information. So there are a nation states, for example, that are targeting corporate networks looking for intellectual property research and development while they're looking for something related to some nanotechnology or Jet Propulsion. They're not gonna come to that small company. They're going to come to the company that actually develop that technology, although they might come to a small company who might be a vendor to that larger use that as an access. Yeah. There was that story of you know, they got into some company because they knew they ordered Chinese food. That happens regularly were vendors are targeted and they might see the vendors kind of low hanging fruit and the ingress into the network. But also there are other actors out there who are not necessarily targeting specific. Pieces of information, but they are looking for their kind of the equivalent of jiggling, the doorknobs and the doors. Locked they move to the next one until they find one that's open. They are looking for that. There are ways to actually scan the entire network the internet with very specific scripts that allow the adversary to determine which I p addresses are vulnerable. What type of operating system is running at a particular IP address farther known vulnerabilities, and then they run exploits against those owner abilities just to get in what they have a foothold who knows where it takes coy. So what are couple of quick little things? People listening across the United States do to our inefficient of owning one of these companies to protect themselves. First of all, we have to take this seriously that it's it's a legitimate threat to their to their workers as I tell companies all the time. This is a business risk just like any other business that you're in. You're looking at expanding or coming up with new product line or doing a merger? Or an acquisition of another company. This is a risk just like that. So companies would be to figure that out in and tickets seriously. The Secondly, they need to make sure that they've got somebody's paying attention to their network and actually looking on their network regularly for novelist behavior that includes people who are patching the system and updating and upgrading the systems. Oftentimes, what we see is companies that are exploited whether known vulnerabilities, and in many cases, the vulnerabilities have been in place for months or years, and if you just fix that owner -bility the exploit wouldn't work against it in and the adversaries by we make it easy sometimes for the series because we essentially leave the front door open. So make sure you're patching your networks, making sure you've got people that are paying attention. You're training. Your people one thing I tell people all the time you've got a identify where your critical assets are on your environment. And then you've got to keep duplicates of those databases. Your most important pieces of information because what we're seeing adversaries do now just to encrypt databases extort companies in order to provide the keys to decrypt the data. And so so having a do. Kit copy, you know, you wanna I try to protect it. But if you can't protect it if you've got a duplicate copy, at least you can help to reconstitute your environment. So there's there's a whole host of things we can talk for many hours about it. But I think the most important people paying attention. And you find that that companies want to tell them that if we do X, it's a set it forget it solution. And we're done. There's there's no such thing in the space and set it and forget it because the the enterprises the networks themselves are like living breathing organisms. You've got a company that has hundred employees or thousand employees or one hundred thousand employees every single day. They're changes to the environment. Right. There are people who get fired. There's people who get hired their servers that go out of business and you bring new things online. So it's constantly changing. And you've got to have people who are paying attention to that. The second piece is is what I call being proactive in the environment. And that in addition to having your necessary defenses in place, your firewalls and dual factor authentication. You've got gotta have a good strong passwords, you're using encryption. You've got standard best practices in place to defend beyond that you've got to proactively hunting your environment constantly looking for indicators at adversaries there or something various has happened or is happening. So. It's never set it and forget it it's constantly being proactive being aware of being alert. Not unlike a building you don't put up the front gate, and then walk away and say, we're secure you've got security guards. You've got cameras you've got people who are walking through the. Austin? A tentative to what's occurring and looking for anomalous behavior. Someone's out there to hurt you. Why do you think people don't pay enough attention to this Sean Carr's, certainly my gosh, anytime anybody gets hacked into just in general the government of big company, everybody talks about it? It's the buzz at the water cooler. Why do they not pay attention? You know, there still are people who have the sense that you know, can't happen to me. It's it's complex sometimes. And I think people sometimes afraid of it they shy away. Collect anything unless it happens to you or somebody nearby you I.

Building Augusta Georgia John scholar take zone shown legacy. I've got scholar winning that match. Cody, Vance take sewn drew Adler. Drew Adler is on row. I've got him win which means that Schuyler Nadler in the semifinals college flour Brown tags on lucky Ali, I'm going cauliflower Brown. He has been king of bushido. He knows the drill. He is on a hot streak. I believe Kalfa Brown is gonna win that match. And then in the final match the first round. Kevin Ray takes on savannah Evans, both of these two competitors. Had great phenomenal two thousand eighteen I think that Evans gets the win. So you're semi finals will be John Schuyler versus drew Adler and cauliflower Brown versus Vanna Evans. And I am going to go ahead and call it. To what I think would be mild upsets, I think drew Adler is going to be John Schuyler. And I think savannah Evans is gonna be cauliflower Brown, and that's going to give you a finals of drew Adler, and savannah Evans, and I think drew Adler is walking out with the title Saturday night. I think he's gonna win in the finals over savannah Evans. So that's my pick drew Adler to win king of bushido aid and move onto the tournament of champions.

He's the IT champion. But I'm telling you the syndicate I think that's going to be enough. I think having Tommy Thomas there, I think Jason cades going to beat Darius Lockhart. Billy brash taken on idiot words, I think that's Billy brash all the way, I think he's going to start out two thousand nineteen. He's the rest of the year. Don't think he's going to start out two thousand nineteen showing why he was the rest of the year. John scholars is Alexander James. I think that's John scholar. All the way, y'all. Yeah.
