Things I'd Wish I'd Known When My Kids Started College
"Things. I wish i known when my kids started college like how their meal plans. Don't include ten dollar la taes three years ago when my kids started college. I could've used some guidance. Decent advice wisdom. I went on college tours asking. What are your dorms. Emergency exit plans. I should've asked how many essential oil marketers within a fifteen mile radius. Hold a communications degree from your university. What did i know. I was worried. Said to be losing my babies and wondering how in the name of god they survive without homemade smoothies would my make good choices. Texts be as effective without the appropriate facial expressions. I should have focused on the upside vodka. Bottles would soon return to the oven where they belong. I could keep my journal out in the open rather than hidden in the closet near the vibrators. Real changes happen for empty nesters and our kids during college years. Not all of them bad. Here's what i wish. I knew it will take one year to go from crying when they leave to crying when they come home six months. If you enjoy the kind of privacy you haven't had since clinton was in office. Prepare a speech for when they call to say we've been seeing each other exclusively for eight weeks. Should i still use a condom. That kid who is said to leave home will soon be wondering why you do things like visit and stay overnight. Go ahead and share opinions about what they wear an instagram pictures. I dare you. Are we supposed to quickly pivot from casting out trans fats and other sources of evil to serene acceptance that their diet now includes edibles. Yes yes we are so steel an edible. When you visit. You're paying for it. Your boys will bring home girls who start sentences with as a capricorn. But stay supportive or though blame you for the inevitable. Break-up relax with the anti-capitalist you don't need to be investment bankers bullshit. You'll have to pay their rent when they eventually decide work as oppressive. It will take years before they stop asking questions about. Laundry and ironing

You started with two thousand dollars where we are on the table right now. A look. You know we've been going up and down but that's just bring a stand into the big blind angus. I'll be giving you this hand. 'cause as hands are there'll be serious they say this business big blonde with ten and the seven officer a real power.

I don't know if anyone was remembering from las wake. Said the game was really tough at the start and we'll building it now. The game is built. It's very much underway Said the ship safari fast and furious. It's for ring game. Some guys have saw bits on. It's really it's really going sartre. We call in the big blonde. We tend to seven officers. Our main you could fall but not just putting thirty bucks in you. You just calling seven seven rot. That's that's exactly right so there's five ways to the floor. I seven three rainbow. The small blonde looks like he wants to. He doesn't wanna bet into everyone's Checks what do we do. We check road we check. It goes checked her up. Look ten officer on the turn. I seven three ten for bar. I student like this and then you go to pair. I don't like this for a couple of reasons. Because jack is certainly handed would've limped along and now they've got so maybe i'll put a feel out of like one hundred twenty. Most importantly dr is the small blind bets into everyone. For one hundred seventy terrifying. It's terrifying especially considered they wanting to the previous picture eight. Yep what's the. What was the flip again. I seven three. I couldn't have three by could have raised. That could even have at seven zero fraud and pocket. I'ts bake also have things like ice. I know i night. So i mean cooling but i love it in fact wacoal heater and then a very good playa kohl's behind and then aleatory pliers followed. The river is an ice. So now if you'll sign a sites i seventy central wants to bet. Now that's hands bathing us. That was terrible view avocado. I'm guessing small vixen again. Dr this tomasson chicks. I think he schick. Coal are while there. Maybe our mike terrible plight. He but on really bright River decision put up Huge and it goes followed. Solve value to be hadid is obviously went for too much. Yeah absolutely i mean. Some people could argue that you could follow prey floppy basis. I pointed contention audit thinks especially in a game. Lock these Rising the turn is certainly something you could do. Considering i could have things like ten no on but you block that It could have our sets he can rise and then decide. What happens if you get free or something like this. Just the charge them Sometimes people to have a bit of a body of the apple when it gets checked and on the flop and certainly on the river We've sort of bombed it harping that what like top paige colza soul. There's so many repairs. There was sort of getting value from with his laws bet like and if they have mighty isis up and i told us what we lose like the hall hand applied is discombobulated. A nonsensical really. I mean i don't know what was going on. This is just a catalyst bad hand with lots of interesting situation. So i think sure we can call but maybe just to turn about. I think we got a bit smaller. We gotta get value and this is not the way.

Machine learning is really transitioning from computational systems in decision making to cognitive right decision making out in insights so Baritone fact became a open platform.

All different types of data then being able to use our suite of over four hundred fifty different cognitive engines and models to to be able to analyze interrogate and ultimately you know empower our business customers with you know the tools applications in unstructured data so they can advance their business. Why do you have so many machine learning models because every job it potentially warrants a different bespoke recipe of cognition. So if i say for example Where presented with australian english.

Our job is to be able to analyze the data sets in ben in effect programmatic find in orchestrate. The right hung recipe to get the best results and to be clear. I'll give you some examples. The best results is not always accuracy. Right if you're dealing with so much tonnage of data some projects that we work on. You know they're okay with eighty percent accuracy. Because it's it's there's so much volume. They have to meet a price point right. They can't wait ten dollars or fifteen dollars an hour of content process it so and that's in that thankfully that decision being kind of model agnostic in being able to normalize.

Mapping the Universe of Human Proteins
"Amid. Thanks for joining us. Thank you so much for having me. We're gonna talk about sear. The challenge of proteomics today. And how serious technology is being used to understand the podium before we talk about serious technology thought we could take a step back and talk about where we are in understanding proteomics today as you think about the work on the human genome project and the progress. We've made their today where we in terms of understanding the human proteome than if you look at the The genome it took us fifteen years and just shy of three billion to sequence the genome and then with the advent of next generation. Sequencing costs dropped. You know cost up to two hundred thousand at nine thousand Would visibility to one hundred dollars gene on there and frankly ten dollars. Gino may also not be too distant future. The consequence of all of that is that we've sequenced over a million genome over ten million ex and an aggregate at the population level. We've now identified over six hundred ninety five million genetic variants and the thing. Is that while we've identified these variants at the genetic level. We know a tiny bit about what these variants mean in terms of their biological function in an how does that. Gino typic- changes actually affect function at the population level within the protein and remember our genes are largely static And they're an excellent indicator of our risk but proteins are dynamic and a true indicator of our status and we just had very very little information at the protein level and frankly the reason for it is that proteins are complex. I'm going to get into it. And we just haven't had the tools to get into the depth the breath the complexity of the proteome and a lack of information hasn't really able us to connect the type.
Chat Marketing and Instagram Automation With Mike Yan of ManyChat
"Low mike welcome to the podcast. Hither they for having the Let's start just square one the basics. My grandma and grandpa are both on instagram. I got a direct message from my grandma just yesterday in the simplest most understandable way possible. Can you describe or our listeners. Maybe even my grandma what the many chat technology is an kind of how it works or here so. I'm sure that your grandmother is aware of direct messages on instagram. Since she already sent you a direct message so what may chat allows you to do is allows you to automate the direct messages on instagram. And the way businesses used this is for example to posted a story saying hey gm coupon to get ten percent off coupon in our ecommerce store or if you're an influence or doing a webinar you can say hey demi webinar to get linked to the webinar and instead of going in answering hundreds of deums yourself wasting your time or hiring expensive assistance to do that. You could use a platform like many jobs that starts at ten dollars a month and it will automate this for you now. The key thing here is that it's not only four lake really simple stuff. You could automate things. Like leaf qualification. So asked people questions about their business and then remember those responses and replied to every specific person differently. So it's kinda like a choose your own adventure type style and what this creates for. Businesses is it just increases the conversion rates. So if you have somebody reaching out to you it's probably gonna take you. Maybe several minutes probably most probably several hours to get back to them. Because even though we're using our phones a lot these days it's still not going to be instant

Am I Spending Too Much on Tools and Software?
"So craig writes in and asks. Hey am i spending too much. On software and subscription tools. I spend over a grand every single year on these tools. And i wanna. I say that you know eight thousand dollars. Sounds a lot when i just say eight thousand dollars but it's all relative really. It depends on how much you're earning depends on how many customers you have been on. The you know the nature of your business and how uses these tools. You're spending a grand a year but with those tools you're earning a hundred grand then. It's not a bad thing because those are basically you're running costs to run a business. You might have cost involved but most people that spend money on online business. Spend most of their money on tools and hosting and things like that again. I want to stress the relativity of this whole you know. Eight thousand dollars does sound like a lot. But our software business between hosting and development sas products and deployment tools and email marketing. We spent well over a hundred thousand dollars a month on tools and subscription services. But again it's all of our costs because we run a software company. I i want to talk about what tools really are worth spending money on and we'll talk about how to maximize tool so before you start cutting out. Let's see some of these tools. Are things that you actually should invest in number one you of say hosting a lot of people go really cheap their website hosting whether they're on a shared server or they're on some sort of dinky hosting plan spending a bit more on your website hosting and having a dedicated server is going to speed up things. It's gonna love the Website the faster have a better experience for your customers. It's the home. It's the home of your business and you need to make sure you're spending good money on a good foundation. A of people forget this. Skip this and spend really like less than ten dollars a month. That's okay when you're just getting started to have a proof of concept once you have customers rolling through the door you need to improve and upgrade your experience so spending money on that is not so bad. Most people spend like ten dollars on their website hosting because we really value experience for customers for our websites. We spent six hundred dollars a month on website hosting a virtual private server.
Hands from $5/$10 Online 6-Max Cash
"We'll just jump right into it then a and that actually. This had got reviewed poker power on wednesday and there are a lot of Differing opinions. On what i should what people thought i should be doing So go flip it back to you and see what what you have to say. Hand starts with me opening the cutoff at five. Ted nolan that with pocket. Jacks the button only have two hands on him but appears to be fish. Flat the button and the big blinds. Who i'm guessing as a also don't have too many hands on him also calls we go to a nine four deuce two-tone flop the big blind checks off again. I pocket i check. I'm going to be checking range. Multi way Especially on a board. Like this. I think and then the fish on the button. That's forty dollars in to seventy to fifty the reagan the big blind raises to one hundred and ten dollars and i was pretty lost what to do facing the check. Raise with an repair multi. Yes so when we were looking at this hand before in the run through. I think that in game you were not clear as to whether or not the button was a fish because they do have mostly full stack. My intuition told me kinda straight away before you even described anything about the hand that the button was a fish because they had nine eighty in their stack. The blinds go through. That would be ninety nine hundred five. I got the feeling that they were fish. But then when they bet forty into seventy two on the flop. I think that kind of confirms that there a weaker player in the pool. Because i don't think that's sizing should like be thing. Whatever it is that they. I don't even know. What percentage that is that they chose to bet they're a little bit more than fifty percent so yeah like basically the button who is a fish. That's about sixty percent and the big line to looks to be a rag and intuitively. I would imagine they are oreg check raises less than three x here here than the actions back on us with our jackson. Nine four two hearts so my first inclination here is to bet three bet or not bad three bed. Check three bet. And that's for a few reasons number one. The buttons forty dollar bet because that designates them a fish. I have to imagine that the big blind wants to raise choose a larger sizing with their sets and their value. So that kind of small check raise from forty to one. Ten makes me believe that like they could be doing this fairly wide. They don't necessarily just have to have like sets or even like a street as five of heart type hands. They could be doing this with like top pair just as protection. They'd be doing this with just whatever they could check raised with like jackson diamonds. Trying to run a multi street bluff. I guess again objective diamonds. We got jack of diamonds. But you see my point right like basically some sort of back doors type type hand and the reason that i want to put more money in the pot now Kind of smallish around two thirty five ish to thirty by my go-to would be like to thirty four. But i can't tell you why secret proprietary information is to thirty four but because i think the check razor doesn't necessarily have sets here all the time like they've got an expanded wider range than that we can check raise against them just fine. I don't wanna flat because we flat that gives the button a great opportunity to call and realize equity getting just an amazing price. I think at that point if we flat. There's like three thirty in the pot. They've got the call seventy two win three thirty so they're getting like close to five to one and our hand does need some kind of
Why Tesla Stock Jumped on Monday
"Robin our here today. We're gonna be talking a little bit about tesla stock tests approach with their sensor suite. Plaid delivery timelines. We've got wells fargo. Picking up coverage of tesla stock. Some news on charging and batteries. Nice start to the week. Four tesla's stock today after a relatively quiet news weekend finishing up four point four percent to six hundred and six dollars four cents that compared to the nasdaq up. One point four percent tussle dead tail off a little bit towards the end of the though falling about one percent in the last half an hour well as luck would have it alanis tweeting about bitcoin and does in the last half an hour about eighteen minutes before market close. He tweeted quote spoke with north american. Bitcoin miners they committed to publish current and planned renewable usage and ask miners worldwide to do so potentially promising and quote couple minutes after that he switched over to doj saying quote. If you'd like to help develop those please submit ideas on get hub and read it and quote so inevitably you see that you see out. Great yuan taking the stock again talking about cryptocurrency. Someone already tag me on twitter suggesting this and if you're just casually looking at the stock yes absolutely looks that way but again it is not that simple if we pull up the minute by minute. Chart here tweeted again. Eighteen minutes before close dessel was at about six hundred ten dollars per share at that point in time it had already dropped from six hundred and fourteen before john even tweeted that if we flip over to the nasdaq you can hardly tell the difference there in the last half an hour with how those look the nasdaq trails off there as well and continued to fall in the last eighteen minutes. Just like tesla did in fact tests actually dropped more in the ten minutes before ilan's tweet actually more than two times as much of a drop their as it did ten minutes after tweeden about cryptocurrency even though the nasdaq performed worse in that second block of ten minutes after alonzo tweet so just like before. Yes tempting to throw that in as the narrative you see the stock falling right when you on tweets. But it's just not that simple and this instance is definitely not evidence of that being the case
FCC Wants to Help Americans Pay for Broadband
"So mike you were recently about. Nfc program to help americans pay for their broadband right. That's correct and it's officially up and running. Now it's called the emergency broadband benefit program and it was part of the roughly nine hundred billion covid. Nineteen relief package passed by congress in december twenty twenty and signed by president trump after that within the package was three point. Two billion set aside for the federal communications commission to cover the program what it does provide a discount of up to fifty dollars a month toward broadband bills for eligible households and up to seventy five a month for households on qualifying tribal lands eligible. Households also can receive a one time discount up to one hundred dollars to buy a laptop or desktop computer or tablet from participating providers. They contribute more than ten dollars but less than fifty dollars to the purchase. How do you know if you qualify for this. Well we have appropriate in my story on tech that usa today dot com. But here's some information. For instance if you qualify for the lifeline program a program that helps low income. Americans purchase broadband access. You automatically qualify for this. You also qualify. If you're on medicaid or your partner you participate in the snap program also eligible as any home with an income at or below one hundred thirty five percent of the federal poverty guidelines. So math is involved as are those in the free and reduced lunch school program school lunch program. I should say in school breakfast. Program and homes for students who are pell. grant recipients also eligible. Some homes have had substantial loss of income since february. Twenty nine twenty twenty like i said my story has links to all these spots and how to figure out whether you qualify. You can also go to the site. You could probably find it there. But i would suggest coming to my story overall. There's about eight hundred twenty. Five broadband providers wired and wireless participate in the program including names like.

Being Victimized by Scams is Solvable [Test]
"Episodes are out every friday. This is solvable. I'm jacob weisberg there. Only a few real cons that exist and the bones of the story are the same and they've been the same for centuries also maria conaco. Vince would writing about these number of years book. The confidence game explores stories of con-artists opportunists people who build up our trust and then take everything we have think bernie madoff the late investors who destroyed countless lives with false promises and financial theft but before we pledged to fight to abolish scams. Remember this another side to those familiar. Stories to the flip side of our vulnerability to cons is human connection and trust and all the good stuff. So how do we protect our loved ones in ourselves. We'll scams being enduring part of society forever because we refuse or are unable to learn from our mistakes rather than admitting i was dumb. I felt for a scam you say. Oh no no cure all of the mitigating circumstances and it probably wasn't even a scam. So i think that it takes a strong person. It's embarrassing So can scams be solved. Rea- konakov thanks so being victimized by a scam is actually a solvable problem. Maria has gone from investigating the lies. We tell ourselves to mastering the bluff herself by learning to play poker at a world class level and writing about that too so i started by asking her why she so hooked on these concepts of big and small manipulations. My first book was about sherlock holmes. So i've traveled this gamut from you know. How do you be detective to okay. What are the what are the bad guys doing to kind of being the bad guy myself but within a game right so so so there are rules And one of the reasons that i've that it's been such a passion of mine is that i hate to see in re in reality. Not in a game. I hate to see people being taken advantage of. And how often that happens. And how scammers often will target the most vulnerable parts of our population the most vulnerable people and then we as a society target again by blaming them and by saying oh well. You're just stupid. You were just greedy. You were just dumb. You shouldn't have fallen for it. I wouldn't have fallen for it and that just gets me. Yeah well i was going to ask you because of your longstanding interest. I mean this personal for you in any way of you've been scammed yourself or people close to you been victims of scams. I personally have not been scammed. That i know of but one point i always make is that you know. The scams are ones that you're probably not aware of so i. i'm sure i've been scammed on small things and when you're about to get on the subway someone stops you and says hey you know. I'm so sorry. I lost my wallet. Do you have the fair for the subway for the bus for the train. I need to get back to my family. And there's so many excuses and you can do one of two things you can say. I think you're con artist. I'm not going to give you any money on. Walk on you feel shitty. You feel like a bad person because they actually needed you. I've lost my wallet. I've needed help in the past. And i think we bought we probably been on the other side of that and so the trade off is yom maybe get scammed. But i'd rather take the risk of being the victim of scammer in that particular instance and. I'm sure i've been scammed that way. Well that's interesting. I mean i have experienced instill sticks with me from high school. I remember in chicago where i was growing up walking through lincoln park and there was a guy kinda ragged looking walking with a gas can and he stopped me and told me this whole sad story about how he was trying to get back to florida to see a family card run out of gas and he needed the money for gas. Now was probably fifteen years old or something like that. I think i gave him ten dollars. Which would have been a lot of money to me. At the time and i felt good about myself for doing that and then a week later i was walking through the park and there was the same guy looking around with this gas can And it just it sticks with

"But the gaming Kinda Shit so. Yup I'M GONNA. Remain and think that this ten dollars extra is going to bring balance to the force. It's going to bring balance is. Worst that like they're gonNA increase the price i. get it as well but. I just feel the need to make this increase worth it. Because I mean it's a pretty significant increase man I mean. Technically. It's not even the questions, even the value of the game itself because the game is already worth more than what we're paying. The ten dollars more is actually more or less us being. It's like when you when you do your taxes wrong in the government comes back and says actually you always this. That's kind of what this is. Technically. Oh, them more money because we should have been paying the more. For the company's new that we would take on kindly to it, so they've avoided it as long as they could. So in a way it's not it's not up doesn't mean that they have to up the value. In fact, it just means that it's going to mean that all their uncanny practices are going to get under even bigger microscope. Like if they if they increase at ten dollars and company still have crunch, time and everything. Their employees have to work sixty hour weeks. Then clearly something so wrong, and it had nothing to do with the end, if if mortal combat twelve comes out, and is now ninety dollars, and they're still twenty dollars. You have to pay to get six characters. That's a problem. So I don't necessarily think that games themselves have to be higher value, but I think having ten dollars more added onto the price of a full game now does really put a lot of bad practices under even higher scrutiny because now. Players are already even more worried about how much money they're spending on games as a day. And now it's even more hyper. Look debts. Because now there's ten dollars every game they by which means if esteem sale comes out, and they put it fifty percent off, and instead of it being forty dollars forty five, so even.

"Seen no difference. So when you think about that, we as gamers. Kind of been spoiled. Not to mention when you look at what aims used to cost back when we were younger and how inflation? We're still like even if a game is seventy dollars US starting with PS five xbox series X. We're still not paying as much if you count the inflation rates from what we paid for super, Nintendo and Sega Genesis Games back in. which is crazy like I remember Frano trigger on Super. Nintendo at e begins in candidate. It was ninety. Plus attack actually I also believe Donkey Kong. Sixty four was ninety dollars when it came out, and that was late nineties. When it came out that it's. In other words we should in theory. Be Paying more than one hundred dollars per game. Now on the flip side, does that make much sense when the consul like let's say games cost one hundred dollars. Why is the consoles four hundred dollars? That's as questions get weird. Because, it costs four games to make Adam. But it also just sort. Of like man, all of a sudden doesn't look great that there is a disc version of PS five. If Games are going to be ten dollars more so the very least you can still resell and get some of that money back. Games just don't want even make ten bucks back, but. You'll get your fifty cents. Fifty seventy five cents. It depends it depends on the sorry to trade deals. It's a buck fifty now. It's also with this pricing of gaming. If is going to increase APPS essentially. is they're going to be less? DLC required no. That has nothing to do with the other in in all honesty. I don't think that will change anything on that front. Madden will cost seventy dollars us, and we'll still have the exact same shit that it does. That's again going back to what we said. Before the break. It's going to take legislation to change that. Because I don't think we gamers are going to put up with. This is the weird part actually. We as gamers are putting up with deal. See I don't think we'd put up with ten dollars. which is weird when you really think? We're not like. People are going to get really fucking upset. that. A game, wait, let's say let's let's even say horizon to will cost seventy dollars. They're going to get upset about back, but they're not going to be as upset.

People got mad about it and I had to remind some people on Reddit. That you do understand that a lot of times when games are in the process being made, we see stuff and they cut.

If you play MLB twenty right now. You spend. Money for two hundred thousand stubs, which is their currency is a hundred and thirty three dollars and forty nine cents, Canadian?

In one mode of a game is worth more than double the entire game. The. That is why micro transactions need to be legislated, because gamers cannot seem to understand this, no are these prices set by the developers or creators of the game was. Are you talking? Are you talking the price of the car or the steps? The card that is the market because it's a rare rare card. In the. In the same vein of like, say one of the most like rare cards in magic. The gathering would be really expensive in comparison. Yeah. Except, here's the thing. A card should have that value because you can resell the card. You can't resell that. Might trout except for more stubs of the same currency? When which you usually lose money by the time that car goes down. Yeah because if you get that magic hard, and the only reason it's worth that is because of the demand that rare you of this physical card.

Video Games were whatever like they could pawn a friends or family that we're just getting rid of stuff or going to rogers, video or blockbuster or local fucking rental store, and just paying ten bucks, and just getting two games, and that was. That was our weekend like that was just trying to do something. I, was that was that was me? I still remember going to wrenching the game over my my view. Gaming was all don knapp the arcade, or in my case, as well I didn't get anything for a while, so I try to make Orios Woods fucking actually interesting. So. I mean it was just another tetris game on Super Nintendo so I mean okay, I guess. Yeah so another game I bought Adam was divinity, original sin one into. Oddly enough. That's why I was like. You should buy it. Simply one of those gains along with that and Disco Elise which apparently I've been told. I need to really or not I haven't bought yet, but I keep looking at it. It's one of those ones where it's like. It's window shopping like it's right there, but it's only thirty three percent off, but I've heard really good. Things would be still worth it now because it's not like the seventy dollar game I think it's thirty something normally. A little bit of having a bit of an inversion to like as much as I hear both those two games are amazing. They're also top down and I'm just like. Always struggled with them. Because everybody tell El Diablo go play that Diablo Three's amazing and I'm like I tried it and I'm like okay. This isn't that interesting. Okay, you would not like divinity original sin, then it's literally just a better Diablo. It's also because the low is just it's not the game played on like it's just. It was boring like the story itself like I didn't feel any attachment I've heard of any original sin to is so good for store or yet if it's just. Enough to work, and that's why piques my interest in the same vein that a game like Divinity Dragon Commander, which I hate tactical fucking artists games I. Hate Them I fucking actually.

"Get your holiday sale. We never talked about. Yeah and we shouldn't have because I bought a lot of games. Pretty straightforward I just got i. just got things specifically for for us to play in the long run. Killing floor to is the big one for me. Doug Game Golf with your friends like all the staples I've got all those now. I picked up these really interesting. I haven't played them yet. Don't know when I'm going to get around to. But these interesting gop visual novel like things that were like less than a dollar. Each and they're about to cheat and they teach you how to read Japanese. Recalled learn to its learn. TACONA and learn to hear Gar hero here, I can't. Start Hair gone. I think or here, fuck? This Learned because I don't even know fucking pronounce this Shit. I'm wondering. because. We all learn way too late that there's no language called. Chinese Mandarin Cantonese. Language actually Japanese or they is Japanese. There are slight differences dialects of in the same way that we have different dialects in English. Obviously here in Canada. We have Canadian and French and there's different dialects of French because there's also. Outside of Quebec Quebec, French also France French. There's also like you go to places in Africa and South America. There's different dialects of French. Japan has its own little things like there's. It's Kinda like here in Canada, we have. Our English, then we have new in the same way that US has as normal what they perceived to be normal English and then southern English Japan has also they're kind of Alexei say in Tokyo, and they have things like Osaka. World soccer is kind of like the red neck. Version of Japanese is what it's considered as. Because? They do a lot of the your. Instead of your, it's year, and there's a lot of like extra apostrophes and what they say when you translate it, so there's definitely like bits here and there and the same. It comes with how it's written like I. said there's three different ways of writing it. So, there's definitely a lot I think it's here. GonNa Kanji and category if I'm not mistaken. macari I'm I'm probably butchering one.

"When it comes to join. The only thing I can do. Is that line because I? Try to do that exact voice with any other line? It doesn't work it. I don't know. Why. It's one of the things. It. Was Can really be Joe Patchy? That'll be amazing this this is the Joe Patchy podcast. That'd be fuck wanted Joe Patchy fog casts. Let's be honest. That'd be fucking. How many episodes that really be. It could be infinite because listen to Joe pesci bitch about anything. Over it's him. Just just in. Just, in talking about anything I'd be like a fucking. Listen to like five hours of this. I misinterpreted. You're talking about a podcast. To talking about Joe Patchy. That would be of. How long do we want to make the podcast? Assured we, we do bite size episodes. We can make that fucking thing. Run for a while. Don't kid yourself. True, it's true. I. WanNa talk, Joe Patchy, and home alone to. See I could go on for awhile. And then lethal weapon. The episodes are endless. Now they're getting endless. All those Joe Pesher Mutations. You Joe Bashing podcasts. Okay fine. Otherwise I mean like at this point, if if I was to give it a grade right now I think I'm sitting at around like a seven seven and a half like I'm I'm loving it, but I'm not. I'm not going to sit here and say it's. It's amazing. It's more just like this has been a great like just filler game right now because I'm in this weird place. And thank God. I had this fucking now. You fucking God I have it because. There's nothing there's nothing on playstation right now because I mean. I don't WanNa. Play the last of US and goes through Shema I don't even think. Get right away to begin with so waystation is kind of at that point with me that I've got almost everything that I want and anything else that I want is not cheap enough at this point. So I'm kind of in this weird gray area of what they do, and then I got this PC and Xbox game pass exists, and I'm like Oh there's a couple of games. I would definitely try for a dollar. Game passes. Amazing I've gone through it.

"Yeah, that's that seems like a good deal. It is so good that game pass and I've heard very good things about outer world. I mean if you if you enjoyed. Old School following follow New Vegas Voller. Stuff, it's definitely up that alley NOGGIN NOT GONNA. Sit here and tell you that story wise. It's amazing, maybe halfway through. I'm guessing I got really put off actually because apparently a normal playthrough for just main story is twelve hours on. My Dad's really fucking quick. What are you doing? Sure although it says with extras is twenty, five and a half completions thirty five. I think I'm already hitting around twenty hours and I'm really taking my time, so I think. I'M GONNA fall more into the thirty forty hour range. But either way like I'm sure I. I can't even tell you that I'm halfway because I don't even feel where I am at the story because I'm just going from place to place and just doing everything, so whatever overarching storyline there is. I haven't really touched yet. We're. Not to mention, I don't know if it necessarily needs one because it's basically like. Hey, you're in stasis for a while. Let's just shoot you on a planet. Go have fun and I'm like Oh okay? I'll go shoot sharing. It's like. I don't know who I am I. Don't know what I'm doing and I don't know where I am all I must all I know? Is I must kill. That's that's basically me right now. Or my case, sorry I don't know where I am I don't know who I am. I don't know what is going on, but I know that I must do three things kill. Lock pick and constantly lie to people. Constantly because that is how you play, follow it you. Are you gunslinger like a motherfucker? And then you spend the entire time stealing shit in line. That's basically. Follow. What format is a first person game of the third party? Down over over the years and then attorney to a first person like RPG in a way, it's more just explore the world. Find new places. Try Not to die by these massive super in insane like unhumorous things that are crawling especially now that it's space. It's aliens now. Yeah, no nukes from what I see so that's that's weird. It's weird playing a follow kind of game with nukes. So far. Said shrink rays and other SCIENC- weapons. So that's fine A. Staple in the follow games. A nuclear war is not well. Yeah, that's why it's called the fallout. Yeah it's the followed after the Nuclear War so the outer worlds is almost a bit of a tongue in cheek to me like see it's out in space. It's world's out of side of Earth Oh. So apparently follow. Follow Games are like bludgeon you over the head with their titles. Just being like look, this is clear what it's about. The South Park Games, the fractured but whole. We'll never know what it was actually about. I mean we're fractured. Sure it was..

Offers valid through six five while supplies last. US, only excludes Alaska, and Hawaii. The Todd and Don show capital, metro launching new bus routes and frequency of bus stops hoping to reverse a decline in the percentage of ridership statesman reports ridership has declined four straight years, even the Metro Rail is down this year by five percents. Yeah. Maybe down five percent, but we have more people living here capper metro says they have more people writing. But the percentage based on the population of the city may be down. But basically, they added a bunch of new bus stops, they eliminated ones that we're not very productive, but they added a bunch of new bus stops affective yesterday. I'm very confused by this. We've grown and based on those percentages ridership has down. Why don't they try to become smaller more efficient leaner and meaner versus spending more and trying to expand when the interest clearly is waning? It's called cap remapping and went into effect yesterday, a major overhaul of the bus service across the city capital. Metro says this should simplify the routes make it more reliable and up the frequent. The agency has added one hundred and ten new bus stops, and cut seventeen. During the transition period street teams will be stationed at bus stops helping people navigate the changes. Plus, there were shuttle pickup rides writers, who may be didn't get the memo, for example, if you're on the wrong streets, the wrong corner, waiting for the bus, I mean, there's some things are different this morning, and they've added some new shades at several of these new bus stops. And if you're a writer, and you're hoping that the bus is on time because you don't wanna be sitting there in the heat. They've got the new shade instead of making sure the buses are on time. They had some awnings to protect you from that. You've got a new avenue website that you can easily plug it where you are, and where you want to go, and then it'll tell you which bus to get on. I don't understand the the decision making here. People are clearly still electing to use the cars that, that we've all paid way too much money for, and they wanna use those for the convenience to option has to be better for me. The better option does not exist out there, not even close..
