How To Play Poker Responsibly

"Sparingly. I have no problem the idea of going off a little bit. Do whatever you want but you want to make sure that you have systems in place such that you cannot go off all that hard but a lot of people they decided. I'm going to go to the casino this weekend. And i'm gonna take the bucks. I'm gonna play some blackjack or some poker. And i'm going to have some drinks with my friends and it's going to be a party. They go there. They start having their party. Everything's fine and dandy then get tilted for some reason either because they lose some money quickly or perhaps because they win money quickly and they think they're going to run like god next thing you know five hundred dollars vanishes. They go to the atm. They get out five hundred more that vanishes thousand advantages that go and they get a credit card loan or whatever they do is they charge them seven percent big. They lose that next thing going off the bender down twelve and their life is in the gun so this situation where you have to make sure that does not happen so so so essentially you wanna make sure that you do not have the ability to get that first loan. Maybe you have to have a little bit of barriers in place where you know like your cap two drinks or one drink. You know what. I mean like you need to figure out where you really start to go off the deep end right and if you never get to that point where you really start to go off the deep end. Then you'll just be fine right like I know jonathan little can have one glass of wine no problem but we don from the last two glasses of wine search get on the border once he s three all bets are off doing often event. And that's not where you want to be unless of course you have. Your one allotted go off time per month or whatever. You wanna call it right and like johnson's right. Don't bring your your debit card at the casino. Yeah exactly right like if you go to the casino and you know you have five hundred dollars to play with. And that's it you don't need your credit card. You don't need your debit card. You don't need any of these things now. Of course you may get out there and lose their money not having any money to get home or something like that. If you're going to be doing something like that. I mean not. Now get one hundred dollars on your wallet to car ride home or whatever you need but you don't set yourself up to where it's easy to go off. I personally have never gotten credit casino. Even though they're always trying to give it to me why have. I never gotten credited casino. Because i know they'll give me a whole lot of credit. And i don't wanna lose or have the potential to lose a whole lot of money even though it would make life a little bit easier to know it could go to the casino and they just give me one hundred k now. We had never have to take money to the casino right than wire it to them or whatever after the fact so it's not worth it. I don't want to have that tiny possibility that in some world i ended up going offer a whole load of money for no real reason. Even though i know that's not even meet right. Like i know that's not even but i recognize good.

"two drink" Discussed on Reality Life with Kate Casey

"Question you asked me was like how how my road experience prepare may I think i. I didn't really have nerves about doing it. Because it was such a different type of reality show with the real world. You just you just get used to it and that just becomes your life. There's no interference there's no producers talking to you there's no storyline so it was. It was kind of weird transitioning to southern charm. Because it's a whole different machine. That type of i think the bravo type of reality show is its polar opposite from say The real world because there is in her. There's interference in you know it scheduled yet. You're gonna film today bobadilla with whitney having lunch at House or so insects that it's it is different But one thing. I took i took with me as i look i. I all cast members down. I said y'all the biggest pasted advice. Second review Television is limit your alcohol intake mom and said that that is one thing that i took with knee. I tried to have a two drink minimum on on southern charm and the few times. I did not abide by that. It is all over television. So yeah but at the same time. It kind of humanized you. Yeah it's not the worst thing it's interesting how they chose you for real world because you were southern belle. Kind of Pity mayes the southern girl and then you end up on the show. That's all about southern culture and feel like like. Does that resonate with you feel like you are the personification of a southern girl. Southern woman never been asked that before he knew. No i don't think so I don't think. I fit a lot of the stereotypes as southern girl. For instance like i was i was debutante I was chosen to be a debutante which is like a huge honor as a as a southern woman. In by the time. I got to be about eighteen years old. I was like this is kinda weird and i wanna do this And i dropped out and know nobody does that. Like if you get chosen to be debutante you do it and you do your debut and and inter society. And all that i've got the whole thing was kinda stupid so i quit Will not let us not forget that you had a goth period and you had that we weird. I went through this weird period like in highschool where i wanted to be a white witch. Do good magic. I literally tried to like convince a couple of friends like join my covet and it was. I went through some basis. How in the world did you luck out by getting to be part of the show and having pre it seemed like you were able to pull off a pretty private life because in today's climate. Ucla housewife their husband. Their spy kids to be on the show southern charm. We see quite a bit of people's personal lives. But somehow you were able to keep your life pretty private especially with your husband. Well and i relate to that because my husband's a really private person to and tell people all the time like normal people don't wanna go on reality television like there's there's there's a little something about you including myself for people that that actually want to put their lives on on on tape you know there. There's no doubt a little bit of ego involved. obviously i think i think with reality. Tv now When they are casting these shows they look for people who are multiple and who are easily. It's like if the producers such jump they say how high and they're eager to perform because they they want to keep their job. If that makes any sense that does makes i kind of early on I just put my foot down. And said i think there's a lot of power in no.

THE HOUSEWIFE WHO DRANK AT HOME

"She hit her bottles in the clothes. Hampers and in the dresser drawers. She realized what she was becoming in a she discovered she had lost nothing and had found everything. My story happens to be a particular kind of woman story. The story of the woman who drinks at home. I had to be at home. I had two babies when alcohol took me over my bar. Was my kitchen my living room my bedroom the bathroom and the two hampers at one time admission that i was and an alcoholic meant shame defeat and failure to me but in the light of the new understanding that i have found in a i have been able to interpret that defeat and that failure and shame as seeds of victory because it was only through feeling defeat and feeling failure the inability to cope with my life and with alcohol that i was able to surrender and accept the fact that i had this disease and that i had to learn to live again without alcohol i was never a very heavy social drinker but during a period of particular stress and strain about thirteen years ago i resorted to alcohol in my home alone as a means of temporary release as a means of getting a little extra sleep i had problems we all have them and i thought a little brandy or a little wine now and then could certainly hurt no one. I don't believe when i started that. I even had in mind. The thought that i was drinking. i had to sleep. I had to clear my mind and free from worry. And i had to relax but from one or two drinks of an afternoon or evening. My mounted and mounted fast. It wasn't long before i was drinking all day. I had to have that wine. The only incentive that i had towards the end forgetting dressed in the morning was to get out and get supplies to help me get my day started but the only thing they got started was my drinking. I should have realized that alcohol was getting hold of me. When i started to become secretive. In my drinking. I began to have supplies on hand for the people who might come in and of course happened. Empty bottle wasn't worth keeping. So i finished it up and naturally had to get more in right away for the people who might come in unexpectedly but i was always the unexpected person who had to finish the bottle. I couldn't go to one wine store. And look man honestly in the face and buy a bottle as i used to do when i had. Parties and entertained did normal drinking. I had to give him a story and ask him the same question over and over again. Well now how many will that bottle serve. I wanted him to be sure that i wasn't the one who is going to drink the whole bottle. I had to hide as a great many people in a have had to do. I did my hiding in the hampers and in my dresser drawers and we begin to do things like that with alcohol. Something's gone wrong. I needed it. And i knew i was drinking too much but i wasn't conscious of the fact that i should stop. I kept on my home at that. Time was a place to mill around in. I wandered from room to room thinking drinking drinking thinking and the mops would get out and the vacuum would get out. Everything would get out but nothing would get done toward five o'clock helter skelter. I'd get everything. Put away and try to get up on the table and after supper i'd finish the job and knocked myself out. I never knew which came first the thinking or the drinking. If only i could stop thinking. I wouldn't drink if only i could stop drinking. Maybe i wouldn't think but they were all mixed up together. And i was all mixed up inside and yet i had to have that drink you know. The deteriorating effects the disintegrating effects of chronic wine drinking. I cared nothing about my personal appearance. I didn't care what i looked like. I didn't care what i did to me. Taking a bath was just being in a place with a bottle where i could drink in privacy. I had to have it with me at night. In case i woke up and needed that. Drink how i ran my home. I don't know. I went on realizing what i was becoming hating myself for it bidder blaming life blaming everything else but the fact that i should turn about and do something about my drinking.

"The Maisonette with Kevin Nation. I spent a part of my day looking through online news sources reading stories about subjects all over the board oftentimes the science and health news updates. I read about alchohol consumption. I've had my share of drinks over the years haven't drank much over the last few years as I was like to say I prefer my calories in food form. But one thing I find is the constant battle back and forth the pros and cons about whether to drink alcoholic beverages. Yes, they found a story that said people who drink two drinks or less per day have a lower chance of developing alzheimer's than those who don't drink at all but then Thursday or four days ago. I read about the fact that alcohol increases your risk of many types of cancer. That's almost impossible to come up with one solo conclusion. I think at the end of the day, it depends on the person have a drink don't have a drink took a drink every now and again not a bad thing necessarily have a drink every day, maybe okay, but more than two or three that's when it becomes trouble at least that's the latest for many scientists.

And i think that's important as an industry Something like that that we've accomplished this year that we've not done in long many years longtime right. Yeah it's gonna to. It's going to continue on twenty one going to be just like twenty if not bigger i bleed twenty. Two's going to be the same way in you. Got to capitalize on it now and talk about all the all the great opportunities zoning to spawn in order to gather i think manufacturers tend to work together more and dealers and as an industry come together.

"All right so twenty. Twenty we know was Trying it best right best year ever. No one can be avenue. They made money if you didn't make money this year. Will you keep any business right. Everyone asked for the cash So with with all of those those things that happened Going into twenty twenty one. Yes i think that I don't think it's gonna be a whole lot. Easier moving forward at note that Production and manufacturing and all. Those things are still going to be tight. And i really think that we're still going to have year next year. Yes the demand for the products. In the pool ministry will be will probably succeed. Twenty twenty one is going to be greater but the there's a challenge. I think all the components said it takes for every manufacturer not just chemicals but everybody to get the components and to get the products. Don't get shipped to the customers to get it into the retailer can then serve. Customers is going to be difficult. It just is i mean. Everyone in our industry knows from the chemical side what has happened with the hurricanes. That have been devastating. The gulf coast and the gulf coast is is the mecca for chemistry. Yeah chemicals. I should say and so an almost chemicals touching of ready products right. So it's it's going to be appropriate and kobe is is is draining You know sanitizers disinfectants right. Because again would you rather use a chemical help. Fight kobe or help. Keep a poor spa sanitized. You asking me that question. We might be buying his business and if we could do our job from inside a spa. We probably prefer. Amen might be a little wrinkly when we get you know. It's it's something that yeah i mean. That's that's what's going on right now. So those chemistries are going to get shifted out of out of the pool and spa because we are as an industry. We're very small in the scheme of surface disinfectants end sanitizing and and other categories. So and so so what some people might not realize understand is those those disinfectants that are used to kill. Those viruses are also used to kill. Lg yup and and keep us sanitised in her pools and hot tubs. Right so briefly it. I'll let you explain. The i guess the three main ones with my quiet and in your compounds quaternary compounds are used in Four zero nine fantastic corex all these hard surface cleaners that you use every day in your and your toilet trees and your bathrooms in your kitchen counters. That saint product is also used to kill the algae. That's grown in your poor spot. It's an it's an outside Or mildew and chlorine at least chlorine pools guess. That's going to be a massive problem going forward for two thousand and twenty one. There was a one of the hurricanes it came through and and the and the golf created a lot of problems in lake charles louisiana one of the largest producer of tricolored Got hit and eddie massive fire. They're going to be down. That's gonna that's going to take out. It's not good for anybody. Know industry is a whole so. It's not it's bad and I in in those chemistries fall into spas and pools and everything else and municipalities. Yes so it's going to be a challenge. Get those products for twenty one. And i think that we're going to have to get creative industry and Keep keep water safe. Spa water safe. We got a lot of products and a lot of other competitors got a lot of good products. We just got to find a way to teach homeowners have had to use the products efficiently. And we can. We can do that and we will do that. Yeah and so well. And i just wanna touch on one more before four explained that how to extend that sanitizer value in your in your spire pool but Excellent is another one fake right that that that chemistry that we typically use in the pool and spa industry to oxidise waste and and shock a hot tub a pool that's one of those other disinfectants Widely in In the in the art surface industry. Right yep yep actually has been now. They've they've found new ways to use that product for you know everyone's going after cohen and these type type of strings so they're all testing for this and they're finding out that yeah that that particular product potassium on a per sulfate is a very good product and kill. You know so. Let's face it. You're the manufacture that product you were dominated by pufus. And now you haven't be able to help people you know worldwide. It's gonna be used in that right. Oh i understand. We can get yeah street. That's what's going to happen. That's what we're trying to relate to the masses right now by talking about this is is supplies are tight. They're they're not non existent right. Things are gonna be tight. So what do we have to. We have to think of ways to stretch out or stent our sanitizer. Ucs in for me and you can maybe touch on a little bit more so you know. Some of my components are boring. It's enzymes those things that help to break down materials material or Keep water and balance more efficiently. So chlorine works better. I think that those products are really going to be the focus of twenty twenty one a good thing too. But you're right. I mean taking all the bullshit out of the water before so tend have to kill so much. It's well so and so when. I talk in present a lot of times. I talk about Brushing off because biofilm builds up right all that we stopped right and so there's dead spots and dead areas were were these things can take. Hold and that sanitizer cake get too. So i always talk about rushing pools and and brushing spot response to there's crevices and nooks and crannies. Those things are all molded encountered right and so my my joke always get you a beer helmet thing up in the morning and you go out and you brush your pool or clear up. I mean when you got reloaded.

"Yeah it is come full circle and it and again because of what happened this year with the covid and people suppliers or able to produce things. So hey the spot manufacture may be able to put the tub together. But he didn't have the resin to make the jets the whole plummet in a motor pump. Seal even coatings. That would go over the acrylics. Sheriff you couldn't get so the manufacturers could even make the creek. Spa guy couldn't cook to form the tub. It's one of those years but it's I still think what happened though. A lot of people realize that when they got to spa it kept the family going coming in. And using it. You know and you've got to remember that you want to kind of keep that thought process going if you wanna keep spa sales move. You know because we're going against the spas are going against theater rooms. It's discretionary income that we have gone again boats. We're here on the boats in cds ensure those type of that type of thing so you want to remember how nice it is. Dan spot tweet at age. Sixty we look at every not there yet. Everything's beginning hurt. We just tell you who sold her new year's edinburgh and again in this fall the therapeutic value of it is wonderful. Yeah i do. I do enjoy our industry. And and the things that we bring to it from spas and pools and so yeah this year you look at it this pandemic but you always try to find a silver lining back in nine. You know await recession came and while the housing collapse you could. You could buy everything in bankruptcy. Well this thing brought in a all again. All the families came back and so he kind of you spent the money on opening up and having a pool. Wouldn't we've not seen these type of sales in pools and spas. I'll say ever. Because i remember everybody goes back to nineteen eighty. Eight to nine. Nine eight. eighty eight was the year but this year. I can tell you that.

We'll in hot tubs. You can't get one today and make sure so when you came to hamlin and ninety three obviously chemical company different products I do remember the spot here. Label from back then atrocious. So picture wooden top off very good so One of the things that that we can. I'd like to talk about is how how the evolution of spa chemistry and pool. Chemistry has changed since ninety three and some of the things that have happened so a lot of spy manufactures now or doing things with Some alternative sourcing to some chemistries. You still need those other things that have produces but spas do things a little different now. the evolution of the packaging which you can touch on that that was outstanding right. I'll tell you what is You know coming in and seeing what what happened. Tear from chemical standpoint. We have fifteen to twenty chemist. That are already there degrade chemists that know what they're doing so i was looking at. That's not a problem. We know chemistry okay but when you looked at our products visually it was like the sponsors great example that you just brought up was like the white model all white cap with a paper label wrapped around god. I mean oh. My grandkids could do that. So you use crayons crayola arrigo stop your peaks. Plus that's all it says. Well so true story. I'm sitting there looking at our popular saying this brand looks like well something. I can't really say on air so our little local watering hole around the corner. We called heaven's south called. And and i'm i'm looking at With the loan. Listen i go. We need we need to make a fundamental change in our look. I said like like right there. Look at that sky. See that blue bottle. We need to take that totally blue blue bottle like that booed shape it and i said it would take like a florescent one color the near the cap match. You know we go through this this look right and then when we finally get the design of the bottle of work with a bottle manufacturer at couldn't couldn't find your house so it was the guy brings us to look and we get it. Silk screened and honest to god. It's it's it's a one colored fluorescent screen with an orange. Just like your shirt. Beautiful jumps out at you with with the cap matching okay. We we bring that out. We watch that. The the bottle manufacture calls us and says i need. Can i put this in the packaging digest because this look is just jumping out everywhere and i want go ahead.

Look when people were walking into the national show when you're walking into atlantic city show and just alls we did with the new design. Look and they walk by and they're going on what is that they didn't. It was just stacks chemistry but it was just an image. It's it's a spa right. Think about it. It's different you got and so there's a lot of companies are industry. They're getting a lot better at that. And that's how you got. You got bring that image. And that's what.

In the meantime our friends over at havilland have stepped in and did an episode for us. It was such a kind gesture. And i'm so appreciative. You remember. We had john legend boker on back on episode number thirty nine. He's back again hosting this time around. John is talking to another legend art. Hair longtime havilland employee. Who is retiring at the end of two thousand twenty art joined the industry in nineteen eighty. Three which is also the i was born. He talks about how he got started. How the industry has changed in those Thirty something years or so all it. You do the math. i hope you enjoy it. We'll be back in two weeks with a new episode. Thanks again to the folks at haviland. The man who always measures once and drinks twice. I'm john volker. And i'm art hair and this is two drinks with the legend. Here in grand rapids michigan lakeside. Because this year twenty twenty. The pool and spa industry was just tiring worse out. I'm here today with art hair. This guy was a legend before me in the pool and spa business parts been around forever. I think when they before they made swimming pools. Were you started to where you are. Today is great story so nineteen eighty-three john. I actually was looking for job. There's gentleman in my neighborhood named joe ward. Who in his own. He was legend time. Joe was wonderful man. He's working for a company called kantar he was again in my neighborhood and he knew of dealer in cincinnati that was looking for a sales guy so we thought maybe i would be good. I was twenty three at the time. And i and i went down to interview for the sales position. Society pool patio little. Did i know that when you become a salesperson into retail store that basically means you are going to my first week at work i had to unload in. I think the people amnesty will appreciate this a truckload of Now for mickey light back in those days came in unskilled though to the top of a fifty three foot trailer that each bank. You had to handle individually all the way through you. Talk about the mass that we're doing right now. I had like four teacher trapped around breathing. The net stuff in unloading that truck but back in those days you know you. You did everything you know. So yes i sold above grounds. Yes i sold in grounds. yes. I tested water. Yes sold the patio furniture. Yes i unloaded the trucks for above ground pools Yes i went. Out and talk to consumers laid out the grapples and backyard. Yes i was out there when we were digging a hole and work spud bar and set walls on a bug. Grandpa ground pools yes. We had eleven display pools. There were eight above rentals. Three grills had to take care of all those. I vacuum all those places. So it's it was you. Did you did everything he had to close register at night was funny because retail hours were ten to eight during the during season yet. We were twelve five on sundays. And then ten five on saturday and there were no days off from the home show which always march in cincinnati until after the fourth of july. So here's what. I'll say what you didn't mention is that Ten eight hours you were. You're getting there at ten and leaving at eight number getting there at eight and leaving at ten right. I mean that was in the old days. You did what you had to do. Your work you did. I mean because trucks didn't say ten. Okay we'll come in after ten that they were there at eight so you they would call. You would find you get there and unload the truck and you know what else was. Interesting is on weekends though. Weekends was okay. Because you've got their ten or noon saturday or sunday but when you were pulling in there were people already in line at the door waiting. You open up. Turn on the lights and unlocked the door and they were coming in all a little mandate jar water. Whatever you like out is going to be a long day when it was closed and time remembered you see a car pull into the up turning lights off duck. The canada weight on his god joe ward again was still at kantar and after two years the came back to cincinnati pool patio what to the owner asked the owner. He could talk to me about now. Hiring me to be a regional sales guy for can't talk and let me tell you. The owner wasn't too happy about that because he got fine. I just did all your training for him in the industry and whatnot. And so yeah. I did actually. Then take that job with kantar. Kantar has a midwest regional sales guy calling on michigan. Ohio indiana kentucky west virginia and i just selling solar covers covington. End vinyl liners so so back then there was no zoom calls now. So how'd you make a sales call back in those days. Would you find a customer. I you know my my budget on on rooms was red roof nights in so the high class place. We stayed at back. In those days. And it was. The classic is on a scott You know mccain said we would open up a go and check in the first thing you do get the yellow pages and you go to swimming pools and you'd rip out.

FEAR OF FEAR

"This lady was cautious. She decided she wouldn't let herself go and her drinking and she would never never take that morning drink. I didn't think I was an alcoholic. I thought my problem was that I had been married to a drunk for twenty-seven years and when my husband found a a I came to the second meeting with him thought it was wonderful simply marvelous for him but not for me. Then I went to another meeting hand. I still thought it was wonderful for him. But not for me. It was a hot summer night in 1949 down in the Greenwich Village group and there was a little porch out there in the old meeting place on Sullivan Street. And after the meeting I went out on the steps for some are dead in the doorway stood a lovely young girl. Who said are you one of us houses to I said, oh goodness know my husband is he's in there. She told me her name. I said, I know you from somewhere. It turned out that she had been in high school with my daughter. I said Eileen. Are you one of those people and she said oh, yes. Yep. In this as we walk back through the hall. I for the first time in my life said to another human being I'm having trouble with my drinking too. She took me by the hand and introduce them to the girl that I'm very proud to call my sponsor this girl and her husband are both in a a and she said to me oh, but you're not the alcoholic. It's your husband. I said, yes. She said how long have you been married? I said 27 years. She said 27 years to an alcoholic. How did you ever stand it? I thought now here's a nice sympathetic so long, this is for me. I said, well I stood it to keep the home together. And for the children's sake she said, yes, I know. You're just another martyr, aren't you? I walked away from that girl grinding my teeth and cursing under my breath. Fortunately. I didn't say a word to George on the way home, but that night I tried to go to sleep and I thought your some martyr Jane wage. Look at the record and when I looked at it, I knew I was just as much a drunk as George was if not worse. I nudged Jorge the next morning and I said I'm in and he said oh, I knew you'd make it. I started drinking nearly thirty years ago right after I was married my first drinking spree was on corn liquor and I was allergic to it. Believe me. I was deathly sick every time I took a drink but we had to do a lot of entertaining my husband like to have a good time. I was very young and I wanted to have a good time to the only way I knew to do it was to drink right along with him. I got into terrific trouble with my drinking I was afraid and I had made my mind up that I would never get drunk. So I was watchful and careful. We had a small child and I loved her dearly so that held me back quite a bit in my drinking career even so every time I drank I seem to get in trouble. I always wanted to drink too much. So I was watchable always watchful counting my drinks if we were invited to a formal party and I knew they were only going to have one or two drinks. I wouldn't have any I was being very cagey. Because I knew that if I did take one or two, I might want to take five or six or seven or eight. I did stay fairly good for a few years, but I wasn't happy and I didn't ever let myself go in my drinking as my son our second child came along and as he became school age and was away at school. Most of the time something happened. I really started drinking with a bang. I never went to a hospital. I never lost a job. I was never in jail and unlike many others. I never took a drink in the morning. I needed a drink but I was afraid to take a morning drink because I didn't want to be a drunk. I became a drunk anyway, but I was scared to death to take that morning drink. I was accused of it many times when she went to play bridge in the afternoon, but I really never did take a morning drink. I was still woozy from the night before. I should have lost my husband and I think that only the fact that he was an alcoholic to kept us together.

If you don't already get enough of us then by all means check us out and subscribe to help us out been. All right, what do you got for us? So a few days ago in Texas? There's a man named Javier. Two-year-old decided to just have a nice night out and he goes and gets drunk and he's chilling at home doing his thing and he just starts craving ice cream, like nobody's business totally get that. Yeah, right totally understand that. My biggest thing is I'm like give me all of the fucking Mexican food when I drink 10 out of 10 times and it's gotta be the worst like you can't be bought a Taco Bell. Yeah, but it's going to be like slightly more authentic but fucking terrible. Oh, yeah, like the cheapest not Del Taco, not Taco Bell not spun by Taco Taco Bell or Del. Oh, so you imagine if we got also no sponsors on this show ever. We don't have any sponsors ever. Yeah there anyway, but so he he gets drunk and he's like, I want some ice cream. So he convinces his knees to give him a ride to go pick some up now they're on their way and they get pulled over dead. Police season do like his nice pulls a violation. I want to fuck it was for drugs a red or yeah. She like she gets pulled over cop walks up to the window and he's like license and registration. She says, wow, I actually don't have my license and the police officer looks over at Xavier and he's all is what it is. You know, he doesn't fucking Thursday is what it is reason. She doesn't have her license is because she's thirteen years old. Oh, you know, that's an important detail to start this whole thing off. Oh, yeah. I figured I'd throw you off so he gets like charge for essentially child endangerment. And yeah, I mean this happened just a couple of days ago. So it's still in the whole process of things. But yeah fucking imagine how drunk you'd have to be to convince a thirteen-year-old to drive you to go. That's that's a tough lesson. That's a that's a tough. Great life lesson dead. Man, that's wonderful. You got any crazy driving stories? There's one time I almost died. Well a couple of times I almost died while driving. Yeah. Yeah. I haven't gotten into a lot of accidents. I'm a pretty careful driver. So I'll just two quick ones. The first one I was driving up one of the main streets here. It's a big like I mean big for here, it's four lanes the Middle Lane. All right, and I was just driving no problem. I was in the the left lane and sumbitch in a van floors. It hits me right on the the passenger back side and puts me. I'm in a Jeep at this point Jeep Grand Cherokee 1999 fucking tool and I'm on it was my mother's and before that. It was my grandmother's your grandma's a tool AJ probably dead. And so I popped up on two wheels. Oh, and I probably went four seventy-five feet and I didn't flip it and when when I got out of the car and the cops started showing up song Dude from a trailer park cuz she she got it out of a trailer park. Oh and another trailer park was damn that dude was like a hundred feet. He was so long story Lake. This is the coolest thing I've ever seen and you did a great job. It was like a brother. That was great. I think that was my first break that kid's hand for fucksake. That was that was probably the worst car accident that I personally was driving in. Okay, so not bad. I'm I'm very careful driver the other time. So with one of our patreon subscribers before this podcast suggested and our lawyer. Oh, okay, we were and and I was with my girlfriend at the time and we were and now wife oh comes out now store down cited. Now I saw and we I really like caves and going out in the middle of nowhere and Minds go sounds I love that shit. That's basically my entire honeymoon which by the time this comes out I log Get back from nice but we went to this place called Death Canyon. I found a forum post from about ten years before from the owner of the land up there and said hey as long as you stay below the fence off and you don't die on the property treat with respect don't paint it. You know, don't can't if death Canyon doesn't get to you you're fine to be on that. Basically, you're saying your good just don't go up into the actively mind region. So I'm like, well it's from ten years ago, but I'm sure it's sure it's accurate. I looked up land records and it was still owned by the same guy. So we drove up there middle of the fucking desert in like a vast gap between the mountains. We got up there and they're just so many Minds he was beautiful. They were even some of them still had the rails on them. AJ's. What? Oh, yeah, if you can find, you know an old mine with the rails still in them. It's rare cuz most of the time that's what they would tear up to scrap to make money at the end. Huh. I mean, I guess it makes sense. They would take everything and it was awesome. They were they were laughing. Really good deep mines. I'm pretty sure I hit mine gas and almost died cuz I got like really like it even better as much as I was breathing. I just could not I was suffocating but luckily our lawyer much taller than me. So if I had died he would have been able to pull me out except that he hit his head on the roof. So the back to the driving though. Yeah. Sorry slightly sidetracked. I on the way out it was the son was shot down over the desert beautiful lots of dirt roads. He just gotten this new car. It was like a hatchback almost like one of those old Subaru's but not quite. Oh, okay, and he was like, well, he was just drive in having fun with it going around corners a little fast, you know on the dirt roads Sand Ridge. Yeah. So in this area because it's the desert there are some lots of hills go up and down a lot and I went down a hill really really quick got to the top realized there was a turn shit said that's it. That's all they said was shit swerved and we like popped up off the road and we just bought Down but we popped one of the tires just bang and suddenly stranded in the desert. But he had he had a he didn't have a spare tire. He had one of those donuts. Oh, yes. She 81,000 School ones. Yeah, and we were God. We were probably three hours away from home. Oh, but you can't go over 65 or 55 with those tires explode so off we had to take turns driving it took like eight hours to get. Oh gosh. We so followers and it was still under trodes for a lot of it. So yeah almost died there almost got off in the desert. Nice. Not bad. Yeah you have anything. Yeah. Mine is actually I was around the same age as Javier's nice we so my dad would work four-day weeks. So when we would get a Friday after school for like fall break or whatever.

Be Able to go to college a semester late and come out in full recovery, but I think things kind of change for me there and when I did get to college, I started to drink pretty frequently and I would say that was like the point when. I started to drink a law you know throughout college pretty consistent. In then I graduated moved to Manhattan, and I had a job in banking, and I was trying to Ford my rent so I had a side hustle in Bayliss. Promotions, which again weeds bit more drinking within two years, I had the nightlife promotions business was actually producing more income from you than my job, so I left my job and I went into that industry time for about eight years, and that was eight years more shrinking, and towards the end I met my wife, and I wanted to kind of have a career change and I knew if I wanted to have a family and it was pretty clear she wanted. To Change? In order to have a family I did eventually I was thought. Hey, you know this is probably circumstantial. It'll go away, but I ended up moving into technology, which is eventually where I wanted to be I wasn't a simple transition, but I got there and the drinking go away, just kind of morphed in I from there was. A trigger drinker I wasn't drinking. Galley I didn't have cravings. I never thought about drinking but I'd hit a trigger. You know out with friends out to dinner on vacation and say I'm GonNa have one or two drinks. Inevitably, it was countless number of drinks, and that was my challenge.

Rethinking Your Drinking/Drug Use During Times of Crisis

"I don't know how you're feeling this week but I'm actually feeling a little bit better. Had A couple of tough days. I'm GonNa admit that because it's really important for everyone to know that we are all struggling right now with these big emotions and were isolated and trying to cope with them and handle them. This is why I want to talk about my subject for today and that is getting or stain sober really rethinking near drinking and drug use. During this time of crisis I am getting lots of inquiries and new clients because people who have been kind of going along with their drinking or their pot use for instance are now seen that use increase exponentially and it's scaring people rightfully so. I remember those times when my alcohol use was increasing when I was taking more benzodiazepines those anxiety drugs than I whisper -scribed and it wasn't during a time of crisis today. I want to ease into the idea for those of you. Who are listening to reducing your drinking especially at this time to really rethink how you're using substances in your lives. One of the reasons that the shift in my profession from diagnosis seen a chemical dependency or an abuse problem shifted in two thousand thirteen. And by the way people were trying to do this long before it was actually adopted to substance use disorders. That means we are now and probably all along could have and should have been looking at substance use honest spectrum. I wish that I didn't have to experience. A severe substance. Use TO SORT. Because for me that look like heavy duty long binges of using alcohol twenty four hours a day. Lean and bad my last big bend before I found the help that changed my thinking in my way of being in this world and for me that meant residential treatment for thirty days with that. Look like in my life was laying in bed and suffering and kind of getting up to maybe eat or I used to drink gatorade to try and get my body back to some kind of functionality and get out their power walk and after a period of time I just succumbed to the chemicals that were overwhelming my brain. The neuro toxins that had infiltrated my bean. My neurobiology and I had not a fighting chance so when I talk about the spectrum of substance use and the idea that we have a mild moderate and severe spectrum the mild part of the spectrum is where you can really turn things around pretty quickly so for those of you who are listening in. May Be aren't yet ready to stop because it's a little stressful right. Now I'm going to encourage you to look at it a little differently to rethink the idea of total abstinence and to look at moderation in a very clinical way. Because if you're working with me for moderation there is a way to do that to make the experience really successful for you you know. We grow so accustomed to these patterns that we develop in our lives and we don't think about them after we develop them. We just returned to the same kind of Groundhog Day and in the case of what we're dealing with right now where there's really good opportunities to look at this space and time that we are alone that we are able to really look at these patterns and not give way to them and not give into them. Can't tell you how many posts I have read on instagram and facebook where people are saying. It's a real struggle not to take that first drink earlier in the day and I've seen a lot of people saying I really want to start drinking at two. Pm or even noon and the good news is that where we were a month ago. People were really joking about that but I hear and read concern now. Like people don't really want to do this but they're bored. They're they're scared. And it is for many coping skill that they have turned to over the years. So I WANNA work on that with the all today to really dive deeper into the opportunity to reduce. Maybe quit altogether or to reinvest in your sobriety and recovery. I know I have covered how I go about diagnosing people. I'm air quoting diagnosing. Because for most of you have listened to me. I'm not really a big diagnosis or of disorders. I do like to use the criteria that's identified in the DSM the diagnostic statistical. Manual won't walk really big name for a diagnostic manual because the information we get from going through the criteria with our clients however for today. I want to give you three questions or topics or criteria for you to think about if you're struggling with your thoughts around drinking or drugging number one. Are you obsessively thinking about alcohol or drugs in a way? That's impacting your life. Is this kind of obsessive? Thought that you have regarding taking a drink or engaging in your drug of choice what I talked about earlier where people are saying. I'm I'm really wanting to drink earlier in earlier in the day. That's obsessive thinking you're not thinking well. I'll go take a walk earlier in the day. You thinking about your coping mechanism that you've turned to mostly probably in the evenings but not focused on any other healthier coping skills to relieve your tension so it makes sense that you're going to think about drinking or drugging earlier in the day unless we can get you to shift your paradigm shift. You're thinking a little bit toward a healthier coping skill so number one criteria. Are you thinking about alcohol or drugs more often during the day number two in the face of potential severe consequences? Do you still drink or use drugs now. I want to be really clear about the word severe in here because so many of us don't count our relationship. Problems has a severe issue and I don't mean that these problems with our relationships have to be big blow outs. It's that resentment that we feel toward our or our loved ones that were not sharing. Its festering inside of us. Also people feel compelled to take a little nip to take the edge off. So you might be using it before you have a tough conversation with the kids or your husband or your parents or the biggest one. The one that I fell prey to was easing to sleep. And we also underestimate the power of clean sleep if you will sleep without taking some kind of medication. Drug naturally induced self soothing. I will also say the really troubling consequence that most people belittle or minimize is getting behind the wheel. When you've had one or two drinks most of us who have had one or two drinks like over the happy hour were not really stained for four hours in which case if you are staying for four hours like I used to. You're really not good to get behind the wheel and of course right now. That's not a big deal but I will tell you in Georgia. It's still a big deal. People are actually kinda going to places And meeting with people keeping social distancing and still having cocktail parties. Yep even on. What's the date today? Wednesday April eight crazy.

Trend Forecasting - Connecting the Dots Around Us by N26 Head of Product

"So dual-track discovery and delivery. This is probably familiar to many of you. The Concept Being Donald Track. Agile the idea that we in product need to not only focus on how to prepare teams for one step ahead for what's coming next in the next sprint or the next quarter but also keep an eye on the horizon. What's further out there? That's going to affect us that we might not know how to make tangible today. And I don't know about you but I found myself more times and I would like to admit with the distribution. That looks a little bit more like that. Not only does it not feel good. It's dangerous and the reason can be exemplified with simple Eisenhower Matrix for things. That are urgent and important. It's not to get buy in from stakeholders or to convince her team. We need to work on something or for you to even figure out what has to be done. These are your incidents for what you might need a post mortem. These are your releases that are coming up and you've got to make a deadline in order to get something through your APP. Regression test not easy to get buying and pretty clear that top priority list for things. That are urgent but not important. This is where the classic product skill delegation comes in is another team equipped to do this better than us. Doesn't their service handle something like that? We try to delegate as much as we can for things that are neither important nor urgent. We tried to get rid of them all together and we might mark them in. Jura ticket as won't do and comment. Please talk to me if you have any questions but for things that are important but not urgent. We don't always take the time and carve the space to focus on them and this is bad because when we don't know what's coming on the horizon we might actually find ourselves working on things that are neither important nor urgent just because they're quick winds and they're easier to understand and to articulate to our teams and so I want to focus today on the upper right quadrant how to carve space for things. That are urgent but important. But not urgent. I believe that product managers can focus on that urgent but not no important but not urgent work by carving space and using trend forecasting tools and techniques in order to future proof their products at Lisa the Barcelona School of Design Engineering where I studied a program on research for design innovation and a cornerstone of that program is in trend forecasting and before. I started that programming. I thought that trend forecasting was basically something like this little more than reading into a crystal ball. Or maybe shaking tea leaves or coffee grounds things that you do on holiday because they're exotic but not necessarily a way to make a case for what you should build next but quieted my inner skeptic and I started to dig into the curriculum and what I found was that the reading materials and the coursework and the projects that is doing in that program or not on the Typical Products Circuit. These are not books that you find tons of medium articles that the tech community talks about all the time. These are things that are a little bit more fringe in nature. And I like to. I found because I realized that trend forecasting is inherently evidence-based with the balance of quant. And I thought that's Kinda like product. Maybe there's a common denominator here that I wasn't expecting and so before we dig into trend. Forecasting tools and techniques that product managers can use. I wanted to share with you. Three things about trends. These are the three things we should know. I don't mistake. Trend with trendy cabbage soup. Diet might be something that you find on a morning talk show but it's probably not here to stay because the next time that some other fad diet roles in this one will be old news not a trend fashion choices. That seem like a great idea in the moment but upon reflection a few years maybe months later you look back at photos like what was I thinking why did I wear that. Not a trend and toys that spike into popularity. Actually the fidget spinner debuted in the early nineties but it claim to fame was in two thousand seventeen in the middle of the year around. May and it didn't even make it through the holiday season. 'cause was old news by by Christmas. Not a trend so don't mistake trend with trendy so what is the trend? Then if it's not the things that capture the headlines of best friends of twenty twenty well it's a manifestation of change and this makes sense when we consider that we would call this a trend line. A trend line moves in a clear direction. And we know where it's going. It's something that articulates to us where things are headed as the impact culture and society and certain industries. And it's no surprise that we'd then would call fidget spinners not a trend that doesn't look like a trend line to me what is a trend. Then looking for a recent example to understand the local market here in the UK is the love for slurp Vietnamese soup. We can see here a steady trend. Yes there are seasonality dips from May to August make sense. You don't want hot soup but FAA shows us that over the last sixteen years. The demand is on the rise at least by search query people being interested in expressing their interest so trends are the sustained manifestation of change and we can notice trends if we look out a bit more carefully for signals signal. It's simple it's an indication of a situation and they can take many different formats. We'll go through some examples. Here's a way luggage. They raised one hundred. Eighty one million bucks through their suzy round so far and they came out founded in two thousand fifteen. They're designing travel luggage for the modern traveler. Smart Design and sleek years later. We see a kickstarter campaign for nomadic backpacks. It raised forty four times. Its intended goal. Sneak on the exterior. You have no idea the functionality. That's hiding within it and Kara sport the pioneer of Ath Leisure bags which are convertible to help people. Mostly women go from gym to work to dinner two drinks. Now what are these things have in common well? They might seem very disconnected but if we look a little bit closer we can tell that these three examples although at different points in time over the last five and a half years show us that there's huge consumer and investor appetite in hyper functional but really elegant products. You would have no idea what's inside because it looks so nice. And so back to the Great. Formatting how can we use trend forecasting tools and techniques at twenty six to make sure that we we build important but not urgent work at an twenty-six so I'm not going to walk you through all of the different frameworks. We use many of them. Should be familiar to you here. In this room marking jobs to be done understanding them through hypotheses. But what I will talk you. Through is five tools and techniques that we used in trend forecasting and the first one is sorting out those signals. So if we receive signals from all these different places around us. If you're slack looks anything like mine in my teams. You're constantly sharing articles things interesting. Check this out such and such just raise money or such and such just got acquired. It's hard to capture that and make sense of it and if we want to be present in our meetings and dive into our focused work then we can't just read everything that comes to us right away but it's not just about what share with you. It's also the things that you go out and find for yourself so looking what's up. What'S UP ON PRODUCT HUNT? What's gaining traction there or even traditional publication? What's the headline news today? The market's hit a record high. These are all signals. And if we aren't careful they can become noise so we use a pretty low tech technique here which is just creating. Trello board organized by Category. Where we store what's going on so in the actual truecard. We have links so we can go back to it and find the details but we organize them by their headlines and this is great because we can go back at will. We don't have to scour the internet or review. Which Slack Channel. Did Somebody share that with me. We can just take a look here and easily. Organize everything now that we've gathered those signals and we've organize them a bit more systematically. We can identify relevant trends. I'm going to walk you through some examples of the things that might seem tonight. I are focusing on right now. Last Fall American Express released. Its new green card packed with a slew of new benefits. It's also made of recycled ocean. Plastic at least for the most part and for that package of new benefits. They've raised the price fifty percent for the subscription month later bunk out of the Netherlands. They launched their own green card ninety nine years a year subscription and for every hundred bucks you spend. They plant a tree within two months. They planted forty thousand trees. Really Cool and the most extreme example up here is a carbon control. Card launched a think tank in Sweden called economy in partnership with the UN climate. Change Secretariat and Mastercard.

Dr. Jennifer Ashton - The Self-Care Solution

"Hi Dr Ashton how are you welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. You guys congrats on the new book. The self healthcare solution and we'RE GONNA start off talking all the way back. It's December two thousand seventeen and holiday season had just wrapped up for you and on on a whim you decide. You're GONNA give up alcohol for January so take me back there and talk about this decision you know. I remember that New Year's you know how sometimes all New Year's tend to blur together. Actually remember that one because two thousand seventeen was the worst year of my life and so I I was really happy to say goodbye that year. That New Year's Eve we lost my ex husband and my children's amazing father to suicide in February of two thousand in seventeen and I had gotten divorced two weeks prior to that it was an amicable divorce and I thought that that was hard enough but then suicide struck our family and I literally spent the entire year trying to put the tiny pieces back together again and and I've realized as we rounded out two thousand seventeen and you know I think most of us get a little introspective when we start a new year. And it's it's kind of appealing to set new goals and try to you. Know think you're starting with a clean slate and I'm no different. I tend to do that as well but there was just so so much more loaded on that year and I realized that I needed to now. You know kind of walk the walk that I do with my patience and on the air at ABC News and really turn that critical doctors lens to myself and reassess the things that I do. You're don't do on a daily basis because I think it's very easy to kind of law out ourselves into this false sense of security like. Yeah no I'm good. I get enough sleep. I you get enough exercise. You know whatever but when you really scrutinize it almost in a scientific way you might get a different answer so I decided you know. Oh How am I going to start this year off and I thought you know what. Let me try an experiment of doing a dry month. Not that I drink a lot. 'cause I don't I'm kind a known as the to and through girl never have more than two drinks and I rarely drink during the week. It's usually just on a weekend socially so it's not like this is the same. This is a different conversation than someone who has an alcohol use abuse or dependence problem but I said you know why not try to do a dry because the last time I had done one I was pregnant and now I have a freshman in college so it had been a while. And that's kind of how the concept for these monthly wellness challenges started. And I never for ever envision doing twelve of them in a row I never envisioned making it into an experiment and writing a book about it but it just evolved and now that it did. I'm really really glad because not only did it affect my life and my health for the better but people are loving it and it's really catching on during January when you're going through the dry month at what point. Did you decide that. You might want to take this further and do experiments for the next twelve months wizar- or like a moment where that clicked for you or would that look like. I don't know that there was a moment. It was kind of a little bit of a gradual evolution. Oh I outed on Good Morning America on January second when I was doing a segment about women and alcohol use and just kind of threw it in as the last Kinda comment of my segment and when I announced it on the air sometimes I forget were the number one morning show and that there are five million plus people watching us and and the viewers just flipped out. Every you know we started getting inundated on social media with people saying I WANNA do. This too is a great idea. I'm in so I kind of just enjoyed the month of dry January and then I said well this was so much fun and people really liked it and I liked it and learn something from it. What should I do in in February and so one just layered on top of the other and it grew from there and you mentioned how you brought it up right away on? Good Morning America. How how important was that for you during this whole year doing the experiment having your audience on TV and your audience on social media there with you? And I think correct me. If I'm wrong a lot of the men at participating in the different challenges to Oh my God I mean it was huge. I think that one thing I learned earned and actually now that you made me think of it. I learned it in kind of healing and recovering from the tragedy of suicide hitting my family as well. There's real power in connection and community and doing something with someone else. Whether it's one other person or ten thousand other people is really really powerful and I think that these monthly challenges you know people really got into doing it with me with each other with friends with family and and so that component of it again. I didn't expect that but it wound up being really really important and it's amazing just what it can do for accountability polity. You know whether it's your partner or a friend or just one person or millions of Americans. It really helps with you to stick with that goal and to be able title to have this platform to share ideas. What's working what's not working? Here's what I need to do or just showing up every day. People are counting on me especially when you are the expert telling people you now. This is what we're doing so accountability. I think is really important piece of all these challenges and just changing Wallace goals in general absolutely and you talk about accountability and including people in what you're going through. I actually found that was one of the tips. That really helped me in dry. January is literally really telling everyone. I knew that I was doing it. Because you know people don't bother you. People don't pressure you more people than not said. Oh my God. That's amazing. I I WANNA do that too and you know so. It was positively contagious. If you will I think it was the case for all of the challenges that the more people knew about it. The more encouragement herge man. I felt it actually makes me think about the one month that you said you didn't really share and you wish you did. which was the sugar month? He found yourself failing right off off the get go with this one and by the end of the monkey realize oh my gosh. I should've told more people so that could've stayed on track. Let's dive into this one. Because I found it interesting that this was the one month that you it didn't hold yourself accountable. First of all you bring up a couple of really important behind the scenes benefits if you will of this book the Self Care Solution. which is that it does not require or expect perfection? That is not the goal. It's really about the process. Not The product I kept referring to it both in my mind and in the book as an experiment in self. So it's about what you'll learn about yourself doing this. You know you might learn that it's easier than you thought you might learn learn. It's harder than you thought you might feel and look better or there might be no difference or you might not like it or whatever. There's no bad outcome with any of these he's challenges. I wanted to pick kind of three basic categories so as you guys know. One of them was what we eat and drink or don't eat injuring the other. One was how how we move. And that doesn't necessarily mean exercise per se it could just mean basic movement and then the third category was anything above the next so sleep deep meditation laughter. Mindful technology that kind of stuff and when I picked the cut down added sugarman. This was the conversation I had with doc myself this is GonNa be so easy. I already eat so well I have a sweet too. I mean I was really fluffing myself up big time and of course you know it's that irony you know. Be careful what you say because it might come back at

"And not to have that second drinking climb on top of her. That was it. I I'm sorry. But that's it. That's just a truth cat at eight hundred eighty eight ten thanks for calling. Hi is on you are on all the way. Thank you for taking my call. So I have a question for you. I am so perplexed. And how the Christian evangelicals are so supportive of anti abortion laws yet. They you're an apple. Addition of any kind of welfare, Medicaid, pretty good support for the vulnerable people having these teamer, and I it's just I don't understand how you can be Christian. I understand how they can be antiabortion. I don't understand how they can then turn around and be all up in arms about entitlements. Well, that baby that baby so cute until he comes out of mom, and then they just wanna put it jail. I mean, they they they don't care about children. This is about and there had this once a kid gets out Calvinism place. The kid goes to jail. He choices was you know, it was it wasn't society. It was, you know, driving while black. It wasn't that know the kid is on his own once he's out, but they just want to make sure he gets out, and you know. By the way, I hate that word entitlement because Medicare and Medicaid, we pay for that a son you're not entitled to it. It's mine give it to me. But but that, but that's what the evangelicals are labeling it. So I'm using their labels. Not mine. I absolutely agree. And I think until we start recognizing that every human being no matter what color, they are is valuable, and that, you know, we have when they are born we we should be in support of them. But when a woman has a woman gets pregnant, she should have the right to make decisions about her own body and not have any five white old men that side, what is going to happen with the future in particular. The fact that whether they're rape or incest is appalling to me, I can't even if I had a daughter I have nieces, I can't imagine. If one of my niece was raped and then. She could not have an abortion. She would have to spend nine months. Yeah. Forget about that forgetting on me. It has nothing to do with any of these other women's right? And whether she was raped or was consensual. It's still her body. It doesn't belong to Mitch McConnell. Let's just remember that thanks for the call. Appreciate coming up comic meta joke in a comedy club and one of the patrons called nine one one. You'll love the answer. And it's all coming up next on K GO.

Can drunk sex ever truly be consensual?

"Excuse me in drunk sex, ever, be consensual. More and more. You worry about. Date rape, and sexual assault and consent. And people are drilling down more and more on what consent is. And now. There's focus on drinking and sexual activity. As you make it to the point. And this is important to understand the lie and change if things change folks, but in the near future, and I'm not saying this is good either in the near future. It may be the case. That someone would be considered statutory incapable of giving consent for sex. If they have been imbibing alcohol. Now, I don't know if they're going to have an alcohol. I don't know how they're gonna do it does that mean any alcohol does that mean one glass of wine because a glass of wine is alcohol, and it does change your mood. You might you shouldn't buy anything online. If you've had one drink, maybe you shouldn't have sex that you had wondering or maybe that's ridiculous. You tell me. Two drinks with that rendu incapable of giving consent. Because let's face it. It's long been considered that glass of wine romantic part of the whole thing. Candlelight champagne fine gem Panya the continental a right candlelight. Wine champagne. New Year's Eve champagne the prom. For the longest time. Like, I guess ten thousand years. Alcohol has been part of reproduction or recreational sex. Should that come to a halt? Would you agree? Let's just say two glasses of wine that if a person has at two of woman is a two glasses of wine, she'll be incapable of giving consent. Would you say that you all males should refrain from sexual activity if the female? As had two glasses of wine. Is that really where you wanna go? Doesn't that kind of infringe on freedom? I mean, really. Maybe that's the way to go. But think about that. Yeah. We're going out on a date. You have two glasses of wine and say that the female expresses his desire to have sex. And you have to say, no. Maybe that's a better world. Or maybe that's a worse world, you tell me my mind is not made up. I know that's not the way it has been in the past. Should there? Be. I mean, it's really it's a slippery slope. Right. Should it? Be as soon as anyone has had any alcohol that is. Impossible to give consent statutorily not possible. And I suppose if that's the case that that would be. Statutorily, sexual assault. I don't know. One good thing. I think that would result from that. It'd be your the population would decrease and I'm all about that. Six seven two five four ten thirty. What do you think is that over the top? I mean, I guess the real question is do you really want to have sex
