You see them in all my dear, Not three, not so much in the NFC South looks loaded with potent offenses. So where to Bridgewater and the Panthers fit in on pain and paper is easy to say. We have this guy. That guy, you know, Atlanta has their weapons on one side of their weapons. Tampa has put on and in the day you have proven field, so I'm kinda paper head ones. You know crime themselves in some of the time of the teams in the league and, uh, two playoff teams, But it's part of the work that we put it in right now. And you can't go too far here approaching one day at a time. Of course, we have guys on this roster who have done some great things in this league, and I'm excited to be on ST Tail as those guys But today we have execute what we plan on doing here. Carolina, which is Ah, running nobody's offense, Don't I love speaking of ajob, Brady coordinated offense. Teddy Bridgewater is familiar, and he's onboard definitely high percentage of some of the things we didn't want, ofcourse, but Joe spending time in coalition and joining that he's come on. He's at his regal, different things to this often, so I'm excited about that. It just beautifully with the system has been change, especially for us. What does not being able to meet in person for TA throughout spring had the opportunity Get with the guys and, you know, reiterate the language Golden installs with the guys prior to around two train account, so having a comfort level that that experience in this office is huge, even at age 26 Bridgewater's known as an exceptional leader, So what is his message to his younger guys? Maybe thing I learned From my years of experience in this league, you get a new class of rookies. Every year, the Rosses turning over not to stay the same just lied. And that's why my assets of the rookies, you know. Hey, come in. Just keep your head down and work. You aren't you're respecting his lead. What you put out on the field display throughout the building with the work that the way you approach he stay so from a young guy coming to a lead right now?

Whether it's in meetings Virgin virtually in coach actually question responded with confidence and conviction that shows a study into things like that In those hymns, hey, comes to the Panthers having overcome a serious injury. And like its predecessor, Cam Newton. He knows how it feels tohave to reprove himself. That's the end of this business. You know, I had the opportunity to experience the early in my career. And you know injuries. Always unfortunate and not await names transpired When I got injury, I got injured. And how wasn't ableto return to privacy? You know, I just took a statement.

You know, I understand that the player your competitors, you want to get back out there and get that absolutely so that you still need guy and he's not some great things. He's obviously one of the best players play for this franchise around. It's him extinct highly of them, and I'm just honored to be following in the position that he left it up to just continue to fizzle mockery.

"I would have been probably on the sideline. Just NACHO LIBRE I watching. Justin. Jefferson put double moves on. Hold me closer Cameron Dance Ler and get into the end zone from number eight because number accurate with that deep ball. A next level shanty out there San Francisco Way. My sources. Tell me. You're kind of infatuated with Minnesota. Vikings quarterback, Kirk cousins, next level, Shani. Kyle Shanahan with that shiny glitzy new deal You know what the The the the good looking kid with the almond shaped eyes in the high cheekbones. Your quarterback God Jimmy Garoppolo. That that that pass that he missed in something called, you know the super. Bowl. To Emmanuel Sanders. Cousins. Puts there on time next level. Shani. So that does that was. So we I just wanted to arrive. We re phone it here a little bit about the offensive line Riley said, he thinks play is going to be better. In Week one this year. Van Like, normal years because. Well I. Don't exactly know what what is rationale was. Maybe. Not running around as much as many people hurt. Attention to detail Vir- virtual I, got no idea I. I will disagree with that I think the I think now. You know when they when they were crafting these off-season schedules. A mention to Tibbs Nardo mad producer that you know. It's. It's when you lay these days out. It's unbelievably important that you have a week and a half to two weeks of strength and conditioning, and you Mesh those with the organized team activities, which is for an hour. I believe that the Roque's is where it started, you get these players out on the field, they start learning and running the Ralston, defending the routes and getting the footwork and the hips in. In, the end inside and outside leverage and everything, but the the strength and conditioning parts specifically for the for the legs and the core of the body for offense of in defensive. Lineman? Specifically. The beefeaters defensively who are inside ain't saying Danilo hunters, not strong top neal's everything. But as an edgy I, you need more speed than, Aaron. Donald or Michael Peers or Lindvall Hungary or Minnetonka High Schools Bo, Allen. It has got more speed and now from from A. A from a strike standpoint in that. Oh, that thrust handle. The double team tried try to split a gap and get back there to the quarterback. It's you know when when they are playing the Games man I'm glad that they have as much strength and conditioning time as they do so that the strength can potentially be there soon or you know maybe work its way into the equation or early early in the situation. So offense and defensive lines look. Look close to what you would expect because if they don't, and by the way, you can insert your favorite cliche wisecracked there. For the Minnesota, moving company. If you want the business, we call the low hanging fruit, but if offensive and defensive lines are close to what they should be. Then that will eliminate push in the running game. It will eliminate certain facets of a pass rush..

"He can be a space eater. He can be take a double team Guy you're going to have to get as much as. As. You can get visually like you said without having the preseason to kind of really understand. So it's GONNA I mean they're going into green bay kind of like, Hey, let's just I think it's going to be less just play. Let's line up and see what we have Let's trust Kirk. Cousins Trust. Alvin Cook, trust atom. Feeling. We know we have coward off. You know like. I think this is going to become a Viking season that is predicated on the offense has always been a defense. Team, and it's like, just don't lose the game for US I. Think this is GonNa be Kubiak. Kinda come out again party where it's like, Hey, I did this endeavor I've been able to take you know teams in mate moves and I mean if you think about Denver, we always thought offense. You know we didn't really say, Oh, man, that's best defense. I've ever seen in my life even with von Miller, but I got you. Yeah, it's always been like they've had a guy. He's always been offense. It's always been. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA the mile high salute the all the stuff they do so horse direct so I, think I think I think revelations Think the Vikings. are going to rely more on their offense. I mean they are more veteran, we know that. The off into line is always a question. But going back to those DB's honestly, if you're a first round second round draft pick and your next, and you're not asked to play a ton of man coverage left on an island, I. Think they'll be fine. You know Mike Hughes in my opinion, I, mean, we saw him play nickel. So we know when nickel comes up, Mike can move inside to nickel. Yeah. So I think you know they're going to be fine. The only thing I possibly could see is you want Hughes on Davante, Adams. If you WANNA, do you WanNa, do with that last segment the way you laid it out with the way. Why do it?

Dota Pit Is Done, Here Comes OMEGA League
"Yes, we are Doda pitch has concluded cinder. and. I personally didn't get to watch this tournament. because my sleep scheduled disallowed it as you know, but `Nigma did beat alliance in a best of five grand files three, two two. So a very up close series talking to this tournament. It actually just had a lot of mean closer towards the end right to to ones, and then the three to which is great for the region. Right. If the teams are close in keeping games off each other worth noting was the absence of secret obviously who have one Basically everything the last two to three months in Europe So them not being there might have leveled the playing field a bit. It's hard to say how much the other teams have caught up when secret aren't part of the tournament. But obviously, `NIGMA great confidence boost. It's been awhile since they've been doing this well Close finals, five games every game was I mean it's kind of a patch right? Most Games were like thirty to forty five minutes. There were no marathons and no GIG stomps but you know it's it's kind of just your your average game time. I guess have you played assemblyman a game yet by the way? Have still have not I don't. I might have actually. have. You finally been introduced the I'm trying to remember. If I had a game with a I. Don't I like maybe I had one actually I'm not positive how it might have happened but did it was one game? Okay. That's incredible. I mean it's not that important. It's to me they're the coolest items in the game, but anyway continue. No. Yeah. So I mean we. We should just I think just focus on the podium, right? Okay. Third Alliance, second `Nigma I and also scary team. Veasley. Teams at any time looked like all three could win because of how the series went so. Yeah good stuff going forward into the Omega League which is a much bigger tournament in terms of price pool we are casting in that by the way if you missed we started casting yesterday. Yes. currently casting their close qualifiers for the European region and that will be casting that over the next week roughly. Make sure you guys check that out actually I. Didn't even I think we're we're not just doing closed qualifiers. We'll doing some of the normal pre playoff stage so I think other than yesterday. So going forward today after this podcast actually will be doing one series an after today, we have three more days in the next two weeks span that were doing games. And then. I'm done at the very least your your schedule is going to be like, but don't know. I don't know anything about what I'm doing. Is this the first? Tournament secret is. After their break feeling that break has been that long it's been like a weeks is the first one. Yeah. I've been two weeks is a decent on time and Doda. To be honest I three weeks. So just to refresh people, EG is going to be part of the EU division on this. So it's quite staff I mean we might as well just mentioned all the teams team secret navy liquid VP flight, a moon E. G. OG alliance `Nigma and NIP, and then to close qualifiers which I mean we can go off on a limb and say who we think are GonNa win because I. Think. Viking. Is definitely like major. and. Then the secondary team, it could be bait. A. Pires these days think hell-raisers quotas well as get their stuff together like there's there's multiple options but I would definitely say clear favorites from nearby. To get first place. In those qualifiers. They've been pretty impressive. They've been they've definitely been very good Yeah. I mean I think this tournament is worth like just emphasizing bit that this might be quite possibly the best tournament of the year at this point because with the development of covert I, don't know if we're going to get any big land until the years over If things start opening up in October or whatever tournaments right now can bank on it. So they can start booking venues and planning everything. So it means if there's announcements of of stuff getting a bit less extreme in, let's say two months than they need a preparation period. So I think at this point, any big land this year's just very unlikely could add this online ones mega stack tournament at least for the West there's probably going to be bigger tournaments for the east than this but. Yeah, it's a it's a very big western tournament. So if you if you WANNA watch some of the best daughter, this is your chance to maybe watch the biggest turn. It says it goes through to September six is actually true correct Dan. So it's a really long term. So this close qualifiers and then there's a big group stage and then there's playoffs. Are Okay. This is gonNA. Be Dumb to bring this up. What are we casting for? The next two is adjust close squall. Here's my actually mistaken. I think it's just close quote Holy Shit. I think the Games I believe the group the group stays in Europe starts August fourteenth. My birthday and I. Good. Let. Me Just check the America's America Start Sixteenth and Asia is already ongoing with the group stage. That's August. I, sixteen they're way ahead. So the playoffs and group stage of the main event. If you WANNA call it's three weeks. That's crazy. That's

So that's what the Indian Act is post confederation assimilation policy tool, so we're going to protect their property from near Ocean of taxes on the face of it sounds really helpful, but you know we look at it, not more current context.

Why did the government create the reserve system? The reserve system was really created as part of the old philosophy by the time we can federate Canada believed that the Indians as they're called in the Internet where a dying race of people that they're not going to be here for much longer They were going very rapid depopulation because of to the the that they didn't have immunity to, and they weren't fitting in economically info set the stage for this dine.

In your book, you outline how parts of Vancouver and the surrounding area were taken back by government to create the city as it is today. Can you explain how that happened? Yeah, so there was a lot of that. Initially, we put them onto reserves often for the most part left them where they were situated, which is maybe different from the US for they relocated people, thousands of miles sometimes from. From but they put them onto these reserves I think about a place like Vancouver today there's lots and lots of people and urban sprawl, but in those days there wasn't much there, and so they put up Nice generous reserves with good allotment, but then we went back and took it away because they weren't being enterprising people's. You know they're supposed to use those lands and put them to their highest and best youth. It's Kinda this really weird argument, right? We want them to assimilate, but we don't want to compete with them in the markets and so. So, we take away, their one of the things is their ability to sell off her, or they can't sell without written permission from the Indian agent or the Department of Indian Affairs and

In situ resource utilization
"I'm Fraser. Cain publisher of University with me as always Dr Pamela Gate a senior scientist for the Planetary Science Institute and the Director. Cozma quest. If you doing I'm doing well. How are you doing fraser good? We sound particularly of cheery for the apocalypse. It's a Friday. I'm going to go in the yard and burn things later today. We've we've definitely moved from the existential crisis. The deep grief phase of this process to the marathon portion where we are settling in for what is probably going to be months if not years of on and off again restrictions lockdown and quarantines and although is still terrible out there and please everybody you know we through this. Collective sacrifice have made a dent in many countries on the spread of this disease. Now we have to lock it up. Yeah Yeah we have to lock this. Have TO LOWER THE RATE. That is transmitting to other people. To below one and and wipe it out of existence and New Zealand's already succeeded so this is possible. It requires a massive combination of testing and Quarantine and tracking down contacks. But that little island nation or two island nation proved. It is possible now. A LOT OF PLACES OUT. There are lifting their shelter in place warnings. Well you're about to be in trouble in three weeks and we're very sorry. Yeah so even. If the shelter in place has been lifted keep an eye on the spread. Remember how it was spreading back in the beginning and just think about that as well in the end. It's sort of like the responsibilities on each one of us to ensure the safety of everybody around us so so take those with a grain of salt. How the key to surviving in space? We'll be learning how to live off the land instead of carrying all your fuel water and other resources from Earth extract them locally at your destination. It's called Institute Resource Utilization. And if we could figure this out it'll change everything our Pamela. Do a bit of a history lesson here when we talk about. How essentially we couldn't have done exploration here on earth without in. Situ resource utilization. It's the key exactly. Yes and it has actually reshaped our world. Nowhere more so than the island of Iceland. It turns out that sailing ships require masts and masts like to break and way back when the great explorers of the northern oceans. The Vikings came across this place with amazing forests and tall strong trees and they settled in and the mast they needed and carried on with their massive trade. We always highlight the pillaging that occurred but it turned out these were also traders hunters gatherers and well. Iceland was once a greatly forced Atlanta and now it has almost no forests and it's leading the vast amounts of erosion. So be careful what you take. Yeah it's interesting when you're there at Iceland. There are no trees right. That's because the vikings yeah mean there's the occasional tree like a person might have a tree in their yard. Apparently there are now some efforts to attempt to reforest the island in theory you know get another couple of hundred years and there will be focused on on Iceland again but clearly. They found what they needed. They were able to survive by cutting down all those trees. Thanks so maybe that's not necessarily the. How want this lesson to workout? But the point being that the only way they were able to survive was the fact that there were resources that they could use traffic. Cut DOWN ANIMALS. They could hunt fish. Eat things places. They could grow things they were able to survive in. What is a very hostile place? And this is how we have systematically explored our world again another amazing example of the past is the Polynesians. They knew exactly were all the little islands dotting the South Pacific were located and had an amazing. Plus you'll navigation skills and new. If they went from here to here there would be freshwater when they got to the next place there would be food. There would be things necessary to carry on their carrying on as they moved throughout massive areas of the ocean. And so when we look at the history of space exploration plans when you look at the Moon missions they carried everything every calorie that the astronauts would need was carried up from the surface of the earth every drop of water every every molecule of oxygen that they were going to breed. Everything had to be carried completely from Earth. And then all the way back from the moon and back in the fifties sixties seventies eighties nineties. People were planning missions to Mars. That would be the same thing. Carry everything the Mars and then carry it to be able to survive on the on the surface of Mars and carry out a mission. It's not feasible. The math just kept breaking. Yeah and this is where it gets really interesting to me. Just what is considered in situ resource utilization? Basically if you don't have to take something with you that means you are utilizing it where you go and if you don't have to carry all of your own energy with you so say you have solar panels. Those solar panels count as an in situ resource utilization. And it's something that doesn't work everywhere in this hour system because we have places the outer solar system for instance we really need to have those radio thermo generators those nuclear fuel cells whereas on Mars. Unless you're curiosity they just solar power away. And that's a form of institute resource utilization. The Sun is in situ you talk about the power. Yeah let's say you don't have to carry your liquid. Hydrogen liquid oxygen. You don't also don't have to carry the fuel to carry the liquid hydrogen liquid oxygen and so there is this huge multiplier for every kilogram. That you're trying to carry to the surface of Mars. Many kilograms of propellant. Get you there and we. I started seeing people. Think hard about. How do we separate the resources we need from the rocks of other worlds in the nineteen sixties and this started crop up in novels like the Moon is a harsh mistress? Which if you haven't read that is absolutely required reading in modern times and in that novel they were shipping grain seeds from Earth up to the moon utilizing human by products and Water. That was found in the regular of the moon to grow vast crops. That were then shipped back to Earth. Which was actually a day shipping the water from the moon down to Earth
Assassin's Creed Valhalla Cinematic Trailer Revealed
"Assassin's creed. Valhalla is a finally officially announced. The long rumored Viking injury in the assassin's creed series. Hopefully everyone got a chance to watch the cinematic trailer. Any first impressions on what we've seen so far. I feel bad for the English. I don't think you're supposed to sympathize with them. They're they're getting slaughtered by very very mean vikings okay so there were two scenes in that cinematic trailer that are really liked. That reminded me of scenes of Other movies such one was when the main protagonists of friend his buddy gets like impaled twice but he still beating down the enemy force in. It felt very much like the boroughmuir seen in fellowship of the ring. If you know what? I'm talking about no spoilers spoiler inherently. Sorry if you haven't seen that movie and then the other one it'd be fine. Based on what you just said he could be totally yeah and he was fighting until the essence Eros. Yeah and then. There's the you guys have seen gladiator. Said the emperor When he's like just his whole demeanor. Sorta petulant King Demeanor that also was very reminiscent and I think a lot of time doing the cool thing where they made a game that I wanNA play. That's about Vikings and then like they're like but also it's an assassin's creed game and they start slipping that stuff in like the bird and then of course the stabby rest. It was really cool. How they did that and I would totally play. That game was just about Vikings. That's a point. That's the point. I wanted to make like I wonder. Is it time for these games to move away from assassin's creed yeah no more future or just like this walkout office it doesn't need to be an assassin's creed game like it can be an open world action? Rpg? Viking game it's almost like when they started with a C. Origins and Odyssey they could've started new franchise with those games the Games that are great. I'm sure this game's going to going to be amazing but like this. Viking is an assassin. He's part of the historic assassin's guild. And he's got the hidden blades. Like come on man but look ahead and blade saved his life so maybe three life is away dislike. It gets less and less believable. It doesn't like I really love the new style of assassin's creed origin wasn't as taken with. Odyssey is one of my favorite games of this generation. So you know for me. It's like great like bring it on another big open world action RPG. But I have seen an undercurrent of like people that miss the old style of assassin's creed. Yeah why did I kind of take? Two's like Oh this looks like it's more like the old assassin's creed and then I read articles about it and I don't really get that it still seems like RPG assassin's creed people miss that. Like people let something on the Hollas. This looks cool but we miss the old thing. But it's funny. Because I guess you can take the interpretation of what makes an assassin's creed series a little differently. like they're obviously incorporating some new elements And some older elements that were new to the series at the time like naval combat is making a return but that was an element that like people appreciated about the series as it was evolving. So the future stuff. It is very much a part of the series but it wasn't necessarily loved or look to the series for so If that is what makes us asses creed an assassin's creed series like I don't. I don't know that that's the thing that we should be. Valuing over something. Like the elements of exploration the elements of overtaking certain areas. And kind of like betting yourself in this open world game. That's really hit Got Heavy RPG element to it to. That feels more to me.

Things like smearing blood on his face sparing the lives of women children and playing with his kids while a narration. Voiceover says they are heartless godless barbarians. They murder and kill blindly. They scar the land of England lands. They will never defend never love. The time has come to speak to them. In a language they will understand and it is revealed that the narrator is king writing out a declaration of war against the Vikings from there. The trailer shows Vikings storming a beach and accepting a volley of flaming arrows as they enter into a large scale war with England the description for the game reveals that the Viking leader we have been watching his Ivar and we see him fighting and slaying and he throws his acts at some enemies but it does not return to his hand automatically which is disappointing and then a big scary extra tall night enters the fray at this point four sees a hooded man appear briefly next to a leafless tree.

But then I've or yells before getting totally walloped by the big night who will definitely have an excessive amount of HP when you actually fight him in the game.

Vikings offseason roster 'evolution' only begins with the NFL draft
"I thought the the Vikings are towing a very thin line they are they are clearly transitioning and they're trying to do without tanking you watched what some of the teams did last year where they just decided you know we're just we made it we're just going for draft picks and we're gonna try to start over the Cleveland Browns have been doing that for years Miami did that last year you had the bangles clearly just likes it well we're just going to stink this year and we're going to try to build back up to the draft the Vikings now trying to shed all of these these this is veterans you know and I think they lost like six veteran players on defense and are trying to shift and get younger and and said some of those old contracts and they're trying to do it and and still compete I think I think this weekend could not have gone better they did did they did a phenomenal job at least on paper and Green Bay was awful Chicago was awful in Detroit is just plug in and fill in holes that they made already this offseason so I think the Vikings potentially if there's football they could compete right away
"vikings" Discussed on Timesuck with Dan Cummins
"Time here just a few of the most famous or interesting folks that I have found few them we've already met probably the two most famous Vikings. Erik the red founder of Greenland and his son Leif Leif Ericson the doodoo discover North America for the Vikings. But we've already talked about them. So let's move onto a dude with the super Vike name or love to Boston or twelve soon or tricked Los in all of the warrior king the grandson of the first ruler of the United Kingdom of Norway. Geraldo, fair hair all of was born around nine sixty eight c go onto lead invasions into England starting to nine nine one. The nine hundred ninety one the English were attacked so often by the Vikings. They came up with the term din guild, which was simply just payments as a term for payments to the Vikings not to kill them. Now Vikings probably didn't invent extortion. But they did perfect. It seems Olaf was paid a guild in one thousand nine hundred ninety one not to attack England anymore. So in nine ninety four he and the king of Denmark Swain forked beard or spin for beard launched another attack on England to get them to stop the English paid a higher didn't go the following year with English treasure. He'd earned offset his sights on invading Norway after battling and killing hocken Sigurdson Huck in the great he was made king of Norway. He went onto make all this all his then pagan subjects convert to Christianity Olaf didn't make a lot of friends with his ideas. One of his more powerful enemies was his old ally spin fort beard and another was Eric Hopkinson the set of the Norwegian king. He just killed Olaf. Would later be ambushed according to legend by thousand men, but instead of surrendering he jumped into the ocean never to be seen again. The famous Viking son of her all fair hair was given the colorful name of Eric blood axe born Eric Harley Johnson. King fair hair ahead. His boy murdering people and rating Europe when he was just twelve Eric got his name by playing nice with the other children. But then slaughtering all but one of his brothers with an ex lice. Like most prolific psychos of the time. He briefly ruled Norway before he was driven out eventually settling north rumba where he would become king. Mr. blood ex battled constantly it was eventually killed. And it seems he's Viking chieftains. A lot of times were either killed in battle or would live happily ever after Ragnar loss. Bracken and sons, let's talk about them another family of interesting characters from the sagas. Both sons, I've are the boneless Bjorn Ironside like their father would become kings. They would all lead many raids Ragnar loss. Brooke who was a beserk or is famous today for his role on the history channel show. Vikings very prominent and the Viking sagas and is famous for being paid by the French king.

"And it's probably also though sexiest Japanese vacuum and got their right is brought up some silk and stayed around for the fish nets. None of their clothes was supposed to be worn tightly tight clothing with seen a showy and pompous. All right. That's how you get mocked and you'll Viking village. It's oh lookit life over there super touch tunic Hari. My name is and I'm so sexy and Taito trousers and mouth to go. Choose. On the way that guy talk that way. There are no, sir. I went it with no plan. I which accident like fucking wing it. There's no surviving Viking underpants. But they're believed to have existed since then have been found. I'm gonna pretend sexy Scandinavian women did where some kind of wool G string. Viking armor, simple as well. Sometimes completely non-existent as you'll see with the beserk hours soon or berserk hours analysis talk about where these tunic wearing bastards dwelled. Vikings lived almost exclusively in RV parks airstream, especially where immensely popular. No. They lived in very sized homes. Didn't even have IKEA furniture back then Vikings were status hungry people. Just like people today the poorest Vikings living in stables with cattle. Right. That's how you know. That's how you get a fuck. Shitty. Viking life. When you got some old ask coach shoes. And you know, you got a fucked up tunic, and you're just laying next to a cow in a barn. A wish it would have married a bit or waif making a bitter to Nick sleeping in the finer house. Vikings Viking did live in towns, but in small villages, consisting of usually six or seven farms farms, usually fence to near enough each other to construct a common main road in the centre of most farms with the main houses known as long houses, some of them pretty nice made primarily would long homes. Look similar to Viking ships other buildings like workshops, stables, barns and outbuildings were also built on the farms, the longhouse featured, no windows or chimney. Instead. Just a hole in the ceiling above the fireplace. Loud smoke of Viking architecture, especially in larger buildings didn't get much more advanced until later when ritual buildings morphed into churches wins Christianity arrived in Scandinavia during the Viking age or Viking era. Now's the government. I think a good way to look at any cultures to examine their government structure and legal system. We're going to look into their war for war for warfare soon. To a promise. Let's take a peek at societal structure. I Viking society was divided into four main levels highest.

"That's more often than I comb, my hair. Thank you, hats and other cultures. They have encountered may have just emulated them. Bit combs razors. Ear spoons perfumes electric, hairdryers crimping irons all of that. But excavated from Viking burials big kremplers. No, those last two are not true. But ear spoons is true. They had ear spoons. What is what does it year? Spoon. You ask. Well, it's a ceremonial spoon. That Vikings used to eat a soup. They made it a boiled human ears prepare for battle. There's still a recipe you can find online. It's it's onions a handful of sea salt. One cabbage for carrots and six pairs of Catholic baby ears. No, it's a little metal spoon. Vikings use to clean the wax out of the race before the invention of cue tips. No, thank you not gonna put one of those years. I would rather have dirty ear holes than to be trying to to scoop out some wax little metal spoon in air. Spoon. To me. Sounds like a good way to punch a hole in your eardrum. While you're rooting around in there with that. You know, also am I the only person who immediately thinks murder weapon when I hear ears with the first thing that came to my head. Maybe I've just didn't twenty true crime sucks. The first thing that popped into my head when I heard about murder weapon was I just started picturing someone cleaning their ear by trying to scoop out that wax and someone else sneaks up behind him. And then just Papa just slams their hand, PU I guess the back of the spoon Earl pushes it all the way into the poor person trying to have cleaner ears. Just push it all the way into their head. Right. Just the whole spoon right in the year. Why do I why do I immediately think she'll like that all the time? Anyway, the Vikings by medieval standards, pretty damn clean. But how did they dress were they flies? Fuck was it horn hats and for vests and ripped apps and a high heeled weather boots. Like, it is when you do a Google search for Viking, costumes. I love I love how by the way. If you do a Google search like Google image. Search for basically any type of costume at all within. I'd say the first five to ten picks. You're usually just into the majority of images being women sexually dressed women. Scantily clad right women in high heels hail is to fana- but seriously ill how much porn and porn images can the internet. Hold out of curiosity. I actually typed Viking costume porn is added porn to the end so much so much including women of ethnicities. I'm pretty sure didn't exist in Scandinavia during the Viking age. Or maybe there were just a lot of sexy ass. Japanese Viking women women, I just didn't know about. Joke. But I also I also had to shut down those web results because I am mealy started getting a boner as working here in the south dungeon with a couple of other people also here in the office. Apparently, I am super Indy. Asian biking porn, anyway, we think the clothing of the Vikings Nordic peoples at the age was pretty simple, although our knowledge of their closes, not complete nor agreed upon few written records mentioned clothing. Archaeological records are a little bit limited. But that being said most experts seem to agree that the men were tunics a thick loose-fitting shirt. Basically worn over loose trousers women wore one long dress floor ankle length with an apron style. Dress over at the apron, dress hung from straps over the shoulders. Fasten by two broaches in the front underneath these garments which were made from wool both men and women wore linen, undershirts or shifts which they might have slept in. And then children were the same styles as adults seen pictures, and I'm gonna say that none of this shit even remotely sexy. Dammit, you know, women did not wear heels or fishnets or even crushes pennies. You know, it's almost like a porn producers don't care about historical..

"Despite will watching too much mainstream news may lead you to believe if you look around the globe a lot of nations, although certainly not the majority have managed to create thriving modern societies where most of their citizens aren't doing too bad there at least doing quite a bit better than most of humankind was doing as recently as a hundred years ago and doing way better than we all were a thousand plus years ago, most of the world's people have longer lifespans than we did just a few decades prior most of us enjoy heightened individual liberties and a laundry list of modern amenities that would make any king just two centuries back get pretty damn jealous. Maybe making more throw his little king hat down in disgust. I bet any ancient feral would happily trade his pyramid or the relative. He's probably having sex with as many of those incestuous pharaohs did for microwave pizza and some net flicks. And out of all the cultures currently crush in the past on the standard of living scale, there is one cold and wet part of the earth that seems to somehow always be among the leaders of the pack Scandinavia. Land of the Vikings when it comes to a quality of opportunity, education, basic, human happiness, and even economic freedom. Scandinavian nations seem to lead the rest of the world today, the citizens of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway are considered among the kindest societies the most fair and the happiest people in the world. Why they're these are the descendants of who we call the Vikings history's most infamous Raper's in pillagers nor societies that populated northern Europe. Born exactly known for their gentle touch history. Often refers to Vikings is dirty bloodthirsty man animals that left her weak babies for dead and rape and pillage shed of any land they found people alive on and some of that reputation is earned some the Vikings were raiders and they did revel in battle. They did take slaves and there was a lot of violence. But there are also, you know, their culture mired myth how much of the popular understanding of Viking history is actually true and how much of their history has been written by their enemies and their victims. There are. Are so many interesting aspects to the Vikings in their culture, we've touched on the spiritual beliefs of the Vikings with north God's in the past back in suck seventy seven today. We dig into their actual lives. The Vikings are much more complicated than the brutal sociopaths. They've been often remembered as a rich culture with its own languages, religion, mythology and customs, the Vikings continue to be a popular topic of discussion nearly a thousand years after decline most of what we know about the ancient Nordic people come from sagas and semi historical writings written about them centuries. After the fact like the mythology of all cultures cultures many of the sagas trade. Historical accuracy for mythos in hyperbole. But we're still able based on the writings of a few agent stories and archaeological evidence to come to what we think is a pretty decent understanding of Viking life on this episode of the suck. We're going to find out how the descendants Viking warriors transitioned from international pirates and slavers and to some. The world's most a, you know, vanished and egalitarian nations, and we're gonna have fun doing it. We will dispel many myths. And I think we'll find a more nuanced appreciation for these wild marauding.

"Unfortunately outs is on baby duty. So he cannot join us tonight. But we're going to kick right into things here. We're going to do things a little differently on this episode. We're going to be joined by a reef Assan of the athletes covering the Minnesota Vikings and throughout this podcast, which is a little longer than normal. We're going to really get in to the details of the Vikings and the dolphins matchup on Sunday. We're going to have a conversation. So basically, a reef is our co host for the evening, and what's great about. This is a reef is going to post this very same thing on his own podcast for his Vikings dolphins preview as well. So we're going to co were going to cover all the details of the match up. We're going to give you analysis on both teams. And we're going to provide you with all the information you need to know leading into Sunday's game. So a reef thank you for joining insider radio. We're going to let you kick. Things off let you have the floor to begin. Yeah. This is going to be a lot of fun. I think I think there's like a lie, especially because you know, they're AFC teams. We don't have. In town of exposure, the other team for paying attention to the patriots people hang attention, the NFC north very alternates. Akers which probably less interesting conversation into typically now it's the bears. But I think people are not really up to things especially here in Minnesota about what's happening in Miami. Like, I think people don't have a good sense of quality that team. You know, is it a good defensive got a lot of interceptions of a yard us. Ryan tannehill plays. Yep. To play those sorts of questions. So it should be a pretty good show. I want to get get it all started by asking kind of the first question, which is in nerdy. It's going to be about the offense of line. I think over the years gotten used to the idea the Miami offensive line has been just really bad that they haven't invested a lot in it, of course, had multiple controversies surrounding it. But this past year, my sense is that it's not nearly in the place that it has been in the past the offense of line. Has improved. My my wrong about that. Is that kind of a mistake or or do they have they genuinely improved and if so how the offense of line for the dolphins right now is a complete mess. It's a complete disaster Kuka in the off season. They had worked to strengthen and paired by the moves they made on paper. They did strengthen very early injuries to Daniel Kilgore Senator guy from San Francisco after moving on for Mike pouncey, Josh sit in as well who they got. He was a great pass protector. Kill war was kind of a poor man's Mike pouncey, I'd like to say different strengths different weaknesses, and then they had Jesse Davis, and John James and Larry Thompson. So there are fantastic. And one thing you need to watch with the dolphins offensive line on Sunday. When when the Vikings faceoff is John James, and they've been using him to pull a lot more and you'll see him pulling off to the left side of the line of scrimmage did that quite often the patriots game and actually contributed to a lot of big runs from Frank gore and Kenyan Drake so be aware of that. And learn tonsil has improved greatly from his rookie season where he. Played guard then shifted to left tackle last year struggled a bit, but has really up this play. So the book ends are solid. You got Ted Larsen there? I know his name being floated around this week with the miracle in Miami. But really he's struggles quite a bit on the line and Travis Swanson, he's just another guy. He's not he's not terrible. He's not great injuries have hurt the positional up. But you know, the Vikings with the pass rush they have at times and so forth. It's going to be interesting to see how much pressure they can get on the dolphins..

"So they force offenses to make post nap decisions. And those three things combined are a really difficult to deal with and really difficult to to prepare for. It's one thing if you're dealing with a talented team, it's one thing if you're dealing with a team that blitzes lot. But then when you combine those with a team that gives you. A lot of different looks and the quarterbacks got a comeback, and he's gotta make that decision after the ball, snap, then infects wide receivers and tight ends. Whoa, because they've got reads built into their routes. They've got things that have to adjust based on the coverage and all that information is being processed after the snap and combined with the fact that they're coming off as brutal a loss as they came off last week. This is going to be another team that that's that's angry and Elul death. It's not like season on the brink desperate, but we saw last week the more desperate team won almost every game, the team that had to have it or at least played better than they had. The Rams are everyone's got number one in the power rankings. Everyone thinks this is the best team in the NFC. Vikings are disappointing one one in one right now after an embarrassed, they just is seventeen point favorites. That's the point you're making right after what happened last week. I think the Vikings ability undo to be very, very silent. As you said, do multiple things will, but their ability to be able to tackle. They are sound and you don't have a lot of good tackling. NFL teams allow the passing tax in the NFL, get the ball, their hand fast to the flat cross the middle, and make people tackled Vikings are good tackling team. The Rams were they good. They're great motion a lot of disguise stuff, but some kind of way they want to get the ball in the one of their athletes hands and give him an opportunity to build a makes them yards in space. So the tackling becomes important people. Say you go into the game, everyone should tackle. No, it's hard and especially early in the season, you see a lot of miss tackles and NFL how many yards they get after contact, how many yards they get after the catch. Those are two things outside of turnovers that help determine we can in week out if you can win NFL game and tackling becomes more and more challenging each year in the NFL because there's keeps being revised how you have to tackle where you have to tackle how much force you can apply when you tackle. So the teams that are able to adjust to that and the teams that are able to do that within the context of the ever emerging rules that come out in terms of how the game is played. That's a, that's a big component to it, and Minnesota has been able to do it better than most teams have. How much can a team learn from a game against the same team. The previous year last year Vikings Rams played each other Rams, got the opening kickoff drove right down the field score to. Down and the Viking shut him out from their own out. They won twenty four, seven girly had his worst game of the year. Jared Goff has his second worst game of the year against this Vikings defense, how much can that be instructive for both teams this year, we usually what you do is you put together an after action report and you look at things you did well things. You did poorly preparation, airs and plan. For the next time you play that opponent and if things stay consistent, you'll go back and it's like current, you talking future you and say, okay, I remembered this, this. This was very effective. Let's see if we can develop that packet. So having having exposure to a team, being able to be familiar with the personnel, all those things that come with a week of preparation really is a huge advantage..

"Yeah. You're having a great season that Johnson, filling legendary wait a minute. Are you serious? Really, no, man. I mean, how would that even work? Right. Park dental trusted for the Minnesota. Vikings. The Vikings locker room a disappointing loss. Buffalo Bills over the Minnesota Vikings coach. You gotta have a short memory in the NFL. And thankfully, we have a short week going into L A. What did you tell your guys? Well, I just told him that you know, we we did all the things that were that get you beat. You know, we turn the ball over. We didn't run run the ball. Very good. We didn't protect obviously we turn guys lease in the secondary. We had penalties on defense. We'll let the quarterback scramble and special teams. We had penalties and. We put ourselves in bad situations. All three phases. How do you get it out of your system with such a short week? I mean, there's not a whole lot of physical work that you can do. But how do you get this one out of your system? Yeah. I don't know, Greg. You know, we're going to have to sit down and really evaluate things again. And you know, it's disappointing come in here and play this way at home in front of our fans. I third down. We get him out on defense. And then we get a penalty. And then we get another penalty later on. And next thing. You know, it's it's. No, just the whole thing snowballs. So. We're going to have to run the ball better. We're gonna have to protect better. I need to coach better. This is a copycat league last week. You knew that Aaron Rodgers hobbling not being as mobile as he wanted to be as a quarterback. They with a lot of quick rhythm passes seems like buffalo from start did some of the very same things. Do how do you fix that? I mean, how do we get pressure back on the quarterback? Again. I think we have pressure on quarterback for most most of the day when he was thrown. Denno beat the guy a couple of times. But you know, we weren't disciplined in our rush lanes and the quarterback got out. We pressured him one time in a quarterback snuck through the the open side, you know, they scrambled in a in a red zone, which you know, we we have couple of free players there that should be able to get it before they get to the third down. So we'll look at it. And we'll keep going. I have not lost confidence in his football team. You know, obviously, we didn't play well enough today win or probably any day we play like that. So. But. You know, I think we'll come back and fight communication or the lack thereof. Seems like in the secondary especially wintry. Wayne's went down that appeared to magnify the problem. And they and they caught us in some situations. Yeah. They caught us a couple of times. You know, we got to Myung younger guys in there now and. Again, Mike practice mostly into nNcholas week. And then he had to go in their corner. So. But we you know, we did turn a couple of guys lose again. And that's got to stop. We've we've always been really good at being in the right position in a backhand. And we have not done a good job this year yet. No, you don't talk a whole lot about injured players, but missing Galvin cook and his versatility as a running back and a receiver. You miss that young man today, but you know, Greg I mean we rushed for fourteen yards. I mean, those guys were coming off the ball and pounding is pretty good. So I'm not gonna say anybody that we missed a lot to do with this one coach, thanks for your time. Right. Coach Mike Zimmer guys back upstairs to you. All right, Greg. Thank you buddy turnovers.

"Emotion of it and go through that like it's it's a what you're doing is senses you're putting safety at risk you're also putting guys that are going to be contentious angry or hurt against each other on the field like it's point right in the first time we have a brawl during one of those meaningless points that's when though reimagined it while i made for good visual at first because there were no defenders on the field it was just as if the vikings we're going to lineup and kick without without any opposition and while they waited for the saints a back case kingdom started leading the crowd in the vikings school chant which was pretty cool pretty great visual and the gamblers were the only people they cared about this because the vikings were favored by four and a half most of the week but in the last day or to the line jumped up to five and a half at a bunch of sports books so that extrapoint would have decided who won and lost and so i guess you could you're probably right that that gambling aspect is why the nfl forces teams to kick um but most of them of late have just been kneeling on the play which is exactly what happened eight minutes and one second later after they finally got of would back on the field they just took a knee which is which is kind of alarming in frustrating for gamblers i'm sure but again the the crazy thing is we just saw the walk off ending against a in the national championship game right so we see another one and it is just it's that moment in sports is just such a perfect perfect it doesn't matter who you root roar you just you just yell lay i found myself i felt pretty good like thirty seconds left i was like well might not amend the prettiest way to get there but i think i'm free in one for the weekend for the second straight we can feel pretty good and then that happens in you just i've i'm screaming at the tv it doesn't matter and the number of people on twitter and you get this all the time that we wanna come at you every time he pick a rock i love a fantastic ending that's all that matters in the vatan the vikings gay that to us it's such a perfect will remember that moment.
