Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 03

"Okay. Let's move on to a guy that's being compared by now to rashad. Bateman in that is lonsdale more. He went to the arizona cardinals in the second round. And this is a guy that a lot of people are on dynasty as well. Collier thoughts on rhonda. More from purview. Run more than other guy data you know. I like the talent. I kind of wonder what his role is going to be in arizona that they do have the passing volume there to support him to become a fantasy viable wide receiver. If he's talented as he can't is athleticism has shown. I think he can produce a to be coming up a pretty valuable fancy option. I just. I'm not really in love with them. Taking them in the first round though. Because i'm not confident that he ends up becoming a very coveted player long-term. I'm just not sure that he that it's without getting the volume that Some of these other top receivers. You're going to get. I'm not sure that his death. The targets are going to be Extremely valuable and so. He's renita rely on a lot of catches now again with the air raid being spread system. There should be a lot of underneath stuff or that. It can complement deandre hopkins. So you later in their careers and you might see these. Two guy switching. But as coming out of college rancho moore's is very limited in what it skills that is He did almost everything. From elias scrimmage whether handoffs or getting short yard passes and running after the catch which is it's good for a lot of offense is like i said he could be a nice compliment out nice Robin but to deandre hopkins. But i i definitely cannot see a batman batman Combination there so. I think that the upside is. The ceiling is a little bit low for me for wanting to spend a first round pick. I think that What you can do with a lot of these guys is if there if you're kind of not sold on them at a back in first or early second round picks you know people covet. Those rookie picks quite often. And you can sometimes get undervalued veteran that you know is going to produce next year i agree with you on wanda and it's baffling to me that these two guys have with similar with shout bateman in baltimore the guy. We just talked about a similar. Adp in dynasty rookie draft right now average draft addition. They're probably going round. Pick eight pick or so but like you call. I think that rondo more is more of a second round. Pick because of the fact that hopkins is already there and i'm gonna touch on that a little bit more and say that long-term if let's say rhonda more sticks with the cardinals. Is he ever going to be a number one receiver in target for cal for calamari. Because as long as the andrea is there and he's demanding one hundred seventy targets. There's not a lot of room. That offense to morris thrive. So that's why i'm with you on route. One del more. I think he's a talented receiver but Even before the draft i was not as high on rhonda with a lot of receivers seeing this landing spot to me makes him in less desirable of a prospect for me. So i'm not on the vonda more train either. And this is probably a guy that i will avoid. I have no problem taking him in the second round. But based on where i've been singing going i think he's not gonna fall to a second round. And if there's a toss up between vonda more rashad bateman the board that i'm gonna pick shot bateman That's what i'm going to be doing every every time. Because i just like Bateman a lot. More than i do rhonda more at this point. Yeah i do i. She liked the landing spot. You know. being tied to collar long-term is a is a positive. I think as far as you know where people are going to proceed even if he does come out and flashes rookie year. People are gonna get really excited to you. Know that that's one thing that i think that You either one of these guys are tied up the young quarterbacks that can rush around and can hit a deep ball i just wondered what his development curves because the way he was using college and if he does maybe this guy could be a terrific type because he really is at that super athlete of prospect. We're

"We're going to hop right back into it and we're going to start with rishaad bateman from the baltimore ravens. He was picked with the twenty seventh overall. Pick in nfl draft. And there's been a lot of conversations about rashaad bateman as to where he compares to some of the other receivers in this class. I know in particular out of people have been comparing him to rondo more but is there a conversation to be made that he's better than other receivers qadir's tony that went before him. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this call. Would you have to say about rashaad bateman. Yeah as far as a baby. And he's a guy that i think. A lot of other people in the industry were were higher on that. I was going into the draft. One thing i do think kind of happen with his leaning spot is these kind of seemed to fall down in some bricky drafts that i've seen and he's kinda back to where the place that i kinda thought he should be all long You know if he falls any further than where he he's kind of going like i've seen him fall as far as like Seventeenth overall in in some superplex ethic. That's just a little bit of over reaction from the from the market you know It probably settle down. He'll probably move up a little bit more as addressees goes along closer to the season. But i think there's people need to be really careful because we saw with. Aj brown where he went to a a a lesson desirable situation a few years ago and people You know pushed him down too late. I you know second second round rookie drafts and turned out to be a pretty big mistake you know. You can't overreact. To situations. Lamar jackson still developing as a passer. And we really don't know whether the baltimore offense may open up or not you know the part of the reason why they might be writing so much inhabit says low volume and passing is because they really dependent on their own their defense and the running game but it also might be an issue because they didn't have the water receivers with the skill sets the to produce so bateman adds a very vital piece in my opinion that they did not have or last couple seasons in in a possession. Receiver know that moves change as well as a another red zone threat to help out with mark andrews because really their receivers have not been responsible for touchdowns last and Marquees brown where i think. He's a good. football player. Is for a stretching the field when he's healthy i. I'm not sure that he's the type of guy that you really want to depend on in dynasty especially in ppo release because he's not going to have a high volume with the with the average depth of targets that he gets. I'd argue that this landing spot for bateman is fantastic landing spot for a rashad baby because you have an offense here with mark. He's brown and like you said. Mark brown is used primarily as deep that this is not a guy that's gonna be demanding by receiver one targets. I think he's gonna be demanding some targets. But he's the guy that's a good deep threat and he's going to have big games here and there but the baltimore. Ravens are lacking a number one receiver. And they haven't had a number one receiver for quite some years. And i can't remember quite frankly the last time they had a number one receiver and resod bateman guy to me that could hop right in there in become a true number one receiver for the baltimore. Ravens this is a great possessing catch. This is a guy that is just an all great receiver. He's going to be a great match with lamar jackson. And he's probably gonna get some solid targets away out of the gate and so i was. I'm pretty how. I was pretty high on them. Before the draft started. I had him publicly about my fourth or fifth best receiver and landing spot to me. Doesn't change anything for rashad bateman. I still think he's worthy of a late. I ask pick in dynasty rookie drafts. You could depends. Maybe even a little bit higher. But i think overall basements a great receiver and i would even argue because i know a lot of people are considering bateman to be the top of the second tier for receivers. But i would argue that. Maybe he should be considered with the first tier receivers as well because if considering jalen waddell to be in that first year a battisti receivers this year now. People are than i have to make the case. The bateman is right up there with jalen waddell because you look at geelong competition and wolf Devante parker for targets. And then you look at batman's competition for targets as well and you have like brown and the opportunity is actually better for the women's and i'd have to argue that. Lamar jackson is a better quarterback than a tiger. Ryo as well and yes. I know that they've been known for the running game in the past. But i think that's naturally because they haven't had an alpha dog receiver like rishaad based in also rashaad. Bateman is a guy that is going to be able to handle a lot more targets than jalen watteau. I don't see as high as many targets in receptions for jalen models i actually think that rashad bateman of very good receiver and he's someone worth considering in your dynasty rookie draft him would be a great value. Fell to like the back half of the first round in your dynasty rookie draft okay. Let's move on

Raiders make surprise pick in latest Mel Kiper Jr. mock draft

"Mock draft three point. Oh is available on. Espn plus right. Now and here. We go no surprise at the top. Trevor lawrence has been there and we'll be there for the moment and started to the moment. That pig is made. He's going jacksonville. And that's not going to change at number. Two mel projects the jets to stay put and select quarterback zach wilson who would be the team's highest drafted quarterback since they took joe nemeth thousand nine hundred sixty five at number three. We have a trade that panthers would move up from number eight to select justin fields from ohio state carolina getting its quarterback of the future miami. Picking up more prime picks. And the falcons make it four for four to begin the draft selecting their quarterback of the future trae lanes. Should it go this way. It would be the first time ever that quarterbacks go with each of the first four picks in the draft. We take a look at the rest of mel's top ten. After the four consecutive quarterbacks we see some other names you will get to know. Kyle pitch superstar tight end. More pass catchers jamarcus devante smith jail waddell notably absent on this screen. Max jones the fifth quarterback in this first round the star from alabama who mel projects. Going number fifteen to the new england patriots and let's start there because mel we spoke about this the last time you broke this down for us. You had max jones going considerably higher namely number eight overall. Why do you see this drop. Greenwich carolina eight with matt rule had max jones at the senior bowl practices where he was exceptional right. So you figure carolina's stuck at eight. They would look at mack. Jones new england and fifteen is built. Bellichik nick sabin connection and obviously looking at a quarterback to get back to. Maybe the tom brady days. Okay get your that type of quarterback which is what mack jones is his style and the way he goes about his business as a pocket passer so once carolina in my mach three point. Zero was moving up to get justin field. Mack jones next opportunity to come off. The board for me would be new england at fifteen.

Stephen .M. Smith and the Iron Bowl

"Stephen smith welcome back from touchdown. Alabama stephen amit always good to see you and great to have you on the program. So it's the week of the iron bowl you've been high on the tide. Since the first time we talked during the summer. let's start with mag jones because you told us. He was different than that was before the public. In the heisman voters fell in love with him. Absolutely i mean. The young man has been battle tested poise and career. I remember him in the us. Freshmen in two thousand seventeen with the scout team out there throwing bombs and of course coach saban told him stop throwing the ball deep all the time. King looks at cope sabres coach. Tell your defense a check me there so you got a guy with that type about and that type of confidence even check his own coach. Nick sabin that you got yourself a quarterback that can really do some special things. So i knew from mack. Jones the freshman that he was poised to this moment but also seeing the growth that he's made targeted stephen m. smith who stephen m. seems like every every aspect of alabama has gotten better the one that has surprised when people is the is the defense. Because after the ole miss game i i wasn't sure that p golden should be buying green bananas. But what's happened on that side of the ball. The main thing is coke. Sabin and pete goading have done a great job. Simplifying things on times player stink too much. You think about my job and is my teammate. Doing his job. It's the guy in front of me. The guy behind me the guy next to me doing their job. And when you're thinking about so many things of your job is and training your is to be district where confusion comes in so nick. Saban has always been one to say. Do your job and the rest will take care of itself. So she and goading been a great june above of simplifying. The game plan players have done their job. You're seeing more pressure on defense guys stopping the run better. More turnovers created a the big thing here. Paul is essentially omits game. You've looked eleven. Shutout quarters football alabama including a complete game shutout of mississippi state and the team is getting off the theater on third down so a better job of simplifying the game plan and players. You know being concerned about doing their job correctly. It's interesting. we haven't really heard much in the aftermath of jason water when he went down some of the pundits. I remember somebody. Espn said alabama was done. They had no chance of winning the national championship. How has that been dealt with on the team. Because it doesn't seem like and i realized alabama has played a top five team Yet they will seem like they've done quite well without him. I remember a conversation. I had with john. Michie paul about you know. How do you feel. Avoid behind by waddell. He's a one type player. Barry explosive guy would. He got hurt against the volunteers. You heard coach. Sabe say you know. I hurt for college football. Not the fact that saving hearts for alabama. I'm sure he pretty much does but he hurts for college. Football due to people enjoy seeing james waddell on the field. He's fast he's a bottle he's gone. He's energetic he's explosive. He's highly entertaining. Obama has found ways to work. Around this. you've seen slade. Boden return be on kickoffs. Of course he got a twisted ankle against kentucky alabama monitoring jam all week and practice. He should be able to go this week. But we'll see what happens We have seen devante. Smith retiring ponts against kentucky patrick satanic. A second has also field in that role a little bit so save has put he and different guys and that special teams role to try to you know. Fill that void but it's worked out for the most part. It is difficult trying to find that guy that can do know what j. waddell does

At RNC, Republicans paint dark picture of future if Trump loses

"Republicans spent most of their convention evening one painting, a dark picture of life. If a Democrat specifically, one named Joe Biden wins the White House back with us tonight to talk about what it is. We have just witnessed Claire mccaskill former Democratic senator from the Great State of Missouri, which might have been referenced once or twice during Tonight's program, our own Lawrence O'Donnell host the ten pm eastern our on this network, of course, and David Jolly former Republican member of Congress from the State of Florida who has since left the house and his political party but he has not turned his back on the state of Florida clear I'd like to begin with you. In terms of tone and substance, and the the kind of takeaway feeling you got after a night like tonight. You know this is the presidency of lies in this was a couple hours of lies. Mostly about Joe Biden is and his policies but also lies about Kobe and lies about healthcare and is you know the thing that rovings it really struck me Brian was the nerve they had of telling immigrants stories tonight Nikki Haley talking about being her parents in immigration Maximo Alvarez from Cuba. Who came here in an asylum situation from Cuba seeking freedom, and then maybe the most unbelievable is all the two women from Guatemala. Selling honey. You have to understand that children from Waddell Malo were ripped from their families arms. and. On purpose this is this is a presidency that has shut the door slam the door on people like this, and so the idea I mean I can't decide which was weirder them having the mccloskey's Vilnai's black people or and then having Tim Scott doing the keynote or a presidency that has been so bad on immigration trying to feature immigrants as part of his story. David Jolly. What do you recognize from your former party we heard. Kimberly Guilfoil. Speech in an empty room tonight saying that Joe Biden is out to destroy America her life partner Dj Tj. Trotted out a new nickname. Beijing Biden tonight because apparently. Nicknames are genetic So, wh. What did you make of what you saw tonight? I bring a different set of ears to this perhaps than senator mccaskill, just give him my my past partisan affiliation and what I would say is from a messaging standpoint, there were some very effective moments and I think maximum Maximo Alvarez speech was ineffective one I think the policy elements of Tim. Scott's were effective I thought Vernon Jones the democratic state REP from Georgia at a very effective message and to certain extent Herschel. Walker. But but then there are two things that kind of trample on that I as you mentioned is is kind of the Colt like narrative. That is all things trump for Matt, gaetz saying MS thirteen moving in next door to Charlie kirks screed on terrorism to Kim, Gulf Oil's. american-carnage reductions if you will all of those elements trampled on what would have otherwise been a fairly normal message to expect from an RMC. But the other thing it requires is for you to suspend the past three years of reality to the senators point the separating moms from children, the abandonment, of NATO, a president who was impeached for trying to cheat the American people in the upcoming election president who want. Release his tax returns who's been named as a co-conspirator in a federal crime in the Southern District of New York it requires the listener to suspend all of those moments that we know are actually the real trump administration and the trump presidency. So unfortunately, look, there were many moments made for TV that we're effective, but they will be lost in the greater trump. Trump is a cult that will ultimately define this convention. Lawrence O'Donnell a bit of darkness on the edge of town in the midst of a pandemic, an unmistakable message that they're coming for you. That's one of the messages and Brian. We try to evaluate the effectiveness of a night like this or any that is this week we have to ask ourselves how long or how much of this did the undecided voter watch and the underside voter watch with very little of these things and some usually they don't watch it at all. So it has zero effect. If all it's doing is reinforcing the votes you already house and so if you think about what was said, tonight, that could appeal to someone who wasn't already voting for Donald. Trump you got some of Tim. Scott's a speech I agree with David about that but not the part the part where Tim Scott suddenly. As if almost to say, I, don't really mean this started attacking Joe Biden said the job behind his ambition is quote a socialist utopia applied that to Joe Biden, and so the speech starts to become nonsense when when he does that the only person I heard actually mentioned something the Donald Trump would do in a second term was donald trump junior and the only thing he mentioned Donald Trump would want to do in a second term is to end the payroll tax end the funding for social security and we learned today from Social Security, Trust Fund that that means Social Security would be unable to pay benefits. In twenty twenty three and I just want to alert the audience in the past you've heard people use the phrase social security is project projected to go bankrupt at some date distant in the distant future. What that always meant was social security will only be able to hey benefits based on the amount of money it takes in that week, which is to say, would have paid about seventy five cents of each dollar that it owed. This idea would leave social security paying zero zero of each dollar that it does and that is the only trump idea for the second term that was actually mentioned tonight that I heard.

"To be able to make the connection, but you're making too to know the people. That that it gives them to me. That's the best part of of. All My years broadcast are the people that I've met and. I'M GONNA have to sit down and. Figure out exactly how many? Different broadcast I've done I. Figured out a list just over the last few years. Just Miami Hockey over the years I've been there I broadcast over five hundred. Miami Hockey Games. So I think it goes up. By five hundred teens somewhere this year, but but and then I certainly going back and trying to figure out all of the places that I've got to go in the. People that have gotten to me, but the places because mostly Miami hockey. I gotTa go through. Went up to Fairbanks Alaska five different times, I never would have gone to Alaska in my lifetime more than likely gone to Alaska in January and February, when it's thirty zero. Broadcast Hockey but. Just. A wonderful opportunity to travel and I wanted to say you know that that I looked up and can't find a list, but I think I'm getting close to eighty different hockey venues broadcast in in my career between the Saginaw Hawks, the Dayton bombers. Cincinnati Cyclone, the Cincinnati mighty nuts, and then the Miami redhawks in all the different teams that we played again. I think fight again or a broadcast over two hundred different hockey teams, and in almost eighty different menus that includes NHL Rinks and includes a couple of people stadium than so in broadcasting hockey in so yeah never wants imagination, and what I've ever thought that you know. When when I first started that with my dreams, but you know the reality, the realist in you know I. Think I. Make It there, but I probably will never be Mardi gras a chance to travel around and do all the different places. I think I've been to forty to. Fifty states now and a lot of that is because broadcasting, and and getting a chance to travel all over, and so the people that you meet in the places you get to see. If you enjoy what you're doing when you're doing, it's. It it'll be a blast and and don't ever just.

"The opportunity for people to be able to broadcast these games and I'm happy for the fans themselves had the outlet in the athletes ensured themselves have their games broadcast like rob evil has done espn media done in a professional way you know with with Richard Skinner who was the longtime sits and ninety radio personality. One of the two angry guys he. He's been broadcasting's for instance. All the last years and my son Zach is the producer for Richard Skinner and his football broadcast. You know to have that Internet. Outlets is a good thing. But at the same token I I don't know if that gives the proper outlet for some of these young aspiring broadcasters to catch that break. Because now it's almost watered down a little bit too much the where there's. Anybody and their brother is trying to be a broadcast or You the former high school athlete they're going to get trying to do you do the color or maybe even do the play by play they they find out. Hey, that's not so easy to do you. That's doing play by play for sport. Especially something like hockey that Sir moving or basketball cross you're. Talking about you know the game. You better know the athletes and so. It's kind of a mixed reaction. I want to see as far as you know the the sports. Broadcasting Goes You know I think it's great that we have all these outlets. The these opportunities for these young broadcasting. We get on there I just. Don't want to be a situation where some of these people. Get the wrong I.

Enjoying it giving it your full one hundred percent. Commitment by preparing own were prepared by having too much information when you're getting ready to broadcast game. It's better to have too much, not being able to use some of the information that you have not had enough, and so with some of these very informal means of broadcast over the air. Some satellite they're they're very informal. And so it's a very fine line between giving the opportunity for somebody that wants to be broadcaster or Just anybody that can turn on a microphone eternal the camera and start saying they're gonNA number eight of the field. He's got the ball and he kicks in into the net or not showing any passive motion in it so I. I hope that. Somewhere along the way that those kind of themselves out a little bit but I decide that technology has made that more. Apparent for a lot of people that is overall. That's very very good thing and.

I guess you could say with before all the time to do but overall I do like it during a race regions. She's almost non-existent With which is something. He's always told me he wants me to grow as a driver. You know. Communicate deal with ups and downs and not you know trying to comfort me or you know be their year for for other variables and so but the moment we walk in the hotel room. It's all right. Let me see the video years. This is what you need. I saw this saw out there on. The track is what you need to work on stuff like that. So overall it's a really good balance and You know I it's. It's helped me tremendously. But there are. There is definitely a little bit of pressure. I I do find myself when I am there of the track. I what's My dad thinking. It might do. I look really slow and my depressing him. You know stuff like that that I have to Kinda easily life out of my mind focused on driving but every once in a while it does pop into my head. We're thinking how does he you know? What is he going to say stuff like that orange? You looking at stuff like that but overall it's it's a big lawsuit for sure to have such a have a dad that has so much experience and it's helped me. I mean astronomically for sure. Are there any good or potentially funny stories about your dad and his racing career that you are able to share Let me think here I mean overall I think the one thing that is I wanna say it's a necessarily a story but just we get quite a bit is somehow genetically and the makeup of me a lot larger than my that We it's it's quite funny where you know they. My Dad's nickname is be done and they call me big beat up and always buddy joke. Oh you know I I keep trying to feed them but you know he just keeps getting bigger and stuff like that and as we know in racing you know weight and size is not your friend inside the car but you know definitely that. That's kind of a funny joke. That goes around the paddock. Would just you know just from Footba being as big as I am but also trying to be harassed her driver? Is You know contradicting but we're trying to make it work. I love it so one last question about him the best lesson he taught you in your racing career for the best lasting but also the simplest one is the line is the line whenever if you're overdriving if you're barely missing apex you know always remember that the shortest way around the race track in the best radius around the corner and that's truly just the simple thing you know. And then he does the moment the track heats up or temperature-wise or your tires were getting old. You start to keep pushing because last time goes down but at the end of the day if you're wide of the tax if you're sneaking in early on turn and stuff like that you're gonna go slower no matter what tires or what fuel or what temperature it is. So I think that's it's so simple but it's helped me. You know in the heat of battle and I'm a guy slowly pulling away from me or something like that or I'm not getting a lot times. I always revert back. It's just the line is blowing you know and from there on that's when you work on setup to make the car handled better on the racing line so it's super simple but one of the best tools that's helped me stay calm and trust the physics of the. I love it all. Wrap it up here with one. Final question then. Thanks again for joining me this afternoon. And this is an easy one Where we are building a pit lane parlay bonafide playlist picked by every driver. We talk through this year so one song or one artist that you That you'd listen to before the race. Who before the race Honestly I'm not a big. I've always believed in staying calm. I've always been someone that I try to always value. How you deal with pressure And I'm very strange in the sense of when I go into a race or something. I listened to just calm. Usually try to get my brain as focused in just zoned in or zoned out. I guess you could say just focusing on the task at hand and getting Bihar right now and If super strange I don't know if you've ever heard of him but his name is petite. This is a very strange Artists but it's someone that Do something that kind of gets my adrenaline going somewhat. But also they somehow relaxes me and keeps me focus attaching. He's my nerves so I have. I can't say I've heard of that one but I am very curious now. I'm learning a lot of different artists from asking this question over the last couple of weeks or months or so so I will definitely add it to the list. Then thanks again very much for joining me man. Best of luck in twenty twenty when we're able to get going again and stay safe man absolutely. I'm thank you very very much for having me.

But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids

Why Do People Have Dreams and Nightmares?

"When you're asleep. Sometimes strange things happen. You fly through the air like a bird but you don't have wings but then all of a sudden you do have wings and you go all the way to Antarctica and float over the ice watching Penguins Waddell over the edge into the water and seals swim up just below. Sometimes after you've gone to sleep you travel to a magical place. Sometimes scary things happen. After I stay down the hill I went into a cave near the bottom of the hill and I was super scared Saw The bay on his hind. Why and then after that. I put up my covers over my head and that helped me stop making that. Lean Jameson from Walpole Massachusetts. Sent us that dream that scared him but as he points out. Then you wake up and you're actually still in your bed. Everyone Dreams and dreams play an important role in the way our brains function. But we don't always remember our dreams today on but why we're GONNA listen back to an episode. We made about dreams. Here are some of the questions you have sent us recently about. How AND WHY WE DREAM? Hi My name is Nikki. And I'm six years old. I live with faceted California and my question is how do we get dreams? And why Hello? My name is seven years old. I'm from Turkey stumble. My question is why do we dream an have two mayors my name is listed and I will live and hair. Some Burke Virginia and I'm seven years old. Why DO WE DREAM? And can you control your dreams? My name is Anne. I'm from California and I'm seven years old. My question is why do you? Sometimes I feared trips mining this connor. I am in nine years old and I'm from Menlo Park California. My question is why. Did you sometimes have dreams? That have nothing to do with your day. My name is penny. Sure I'm ten years old. Eleven thinks burden Maryland. And my question is why when you watch things or scary things get bad. Dreams about. Halloween was real anna from Passer California and three years old and my question is at what age do keister having dreams harmonies my name is Liam. I'm eight years old. I live in New Jersey and my question is how do we wake up this? We have a nightmare today. We're going to get answers from Dr David Kahn. I'm on the Faculty of the Harvard Medical School in the Department of Psychiatry. A psychiatrist is a doctor who studies the way our brains make us feel and think and behave and a psychiatrist helps make sure your brain is keeping your mood stable and your emotions healthy. That's often called mental health. Dr Kahn got interested in medicine. Partly because like so many of you. He was really interested in dreams. I dream and I said Oh my God I dream a lot. And what is that all about? Why am I dream so different than when I think during the day? Let's see if I can learn something about it. I'm a physicist by training and so I decided that's a really good new area to investigate. And it's very personal. Sometimes physics can be impersonal. Dreaming is very personal so I decided to learn more about it. Here are a few more of your questions for Dr Com. Hi My name is Colin. I'm seven years old. I live in Phoenix Arizona. And my question is why do people have dreams and nightmares? Any is luke got MS seven year. Old Girl. And I live in New York City. My question is why do you have daas nightmares? And why do you have good thoughts? Good Dreams dreaming is thinking when we're asleep when we're awake up. Rain is actively able to think but when we go to sleep. The brain doesn't stop being active. It's just as active in sometimes more active than when we are awake. So dreaming is the way the brain thinks so if dreaming is the way the brain thinks when we're asleep why does it seem so different from the way we think when we're awake? I mean I don't know about you but even when I play pretend it's not quite the same as the magical worlds. I live in when I'm dreaming. James can be very strange because parts of the brain change compared to the way the brain is when we are thinking and awake what happens. The emotional parts of the brain are very active when we are asleep and dreaming often our dreams therefore who be scary or joyful or affectionate or even nightmarish because the emotional areas of the brain become highly active when we go to sleep and start to dream however. Why don't we say okay? This is a nightmare. I don't want to happen nightmare. I'm going to stop it. We can't because another part of the brain when we go to sleep and trim the logical part stops working. It's off line so in other words. I can't tell my brain to stop having dream whether it's bad or good because that part of my brain is shut down while I'm sleeping the part of the brain. That's logical and rational and tells you you should do this. I should do that checks out when you go to sleep. And you're dreaming so right now you're listening and you can decide. I'M GONNA listen or I'm not gonNA listen to Dr Kahn or I'm going to go and get an apple from the refrigerator or a cookie. You decide but when you go to sleep and you dream you don't decide vitrine just goes on as if you weren't there of course you are there but the part of the brain that lets you decide to do this or not to do. This is offline checks out is not working. That might sound a little frightening. A part of your brain isn't working but think back to our last episode. All about sleep sleep is an important time for your brain and body to recover from all the hard work you do. All Day while you're awake and it's also a time for your brain to reorganize itself so some parts of your brain need a little time to go offline as Dr Khan calls it to get a chance to recover and clean up but those other parts of your brain. The emotional parts are still very active. And so your dream continues and Dr Khan points out. That's actually pretty cool. Anything could happen. Which is not bad because you get experiences that you wouldn't have if you're a weight because your logical mind would say or this can't be. I can't fly sometimes. People fly in their dream costs. They don't know they can't fly when you're awake. No you can't fly so essentially when I'm dreaming if I'm flying in my dream or if I am a lion in my dream my brain actually thinks that I am that thing or can do that thing. Because there's no part of my brain that's telling me it's wrong when you're dreaming the part of the brain that knows you're not a lion or you're not a tiger or you can't fly fat part of the brain coast to sleep so to speak meaning. It's not working the way it works when you're awake when you're awake if you imagine you're a lion you can imagine that but you know that you're not a lion you can imagine you're flying like Superman but you know that you're not when you go to sleep and dreaming that part of the brain isn't working the same way and so you believe you're flying you you're superman or tiger. It's great to have all these interesting experiences when your dreams are good but if you've ever had a bad dream you know that they're not always fun. Hi Lendings Friday. I'm five years of Dover Massachusetts it island. Now why are they have scary deums? I'm Mac I four years old. I live in Michigan. I question why people have bad dreams. Wait was waiting for us. Owed I was an pence. Oh Bay Neha and I'm Wendy. While he getting night why do we have bad dreams that make us feel terrible and sometimes wake us up scared or crying? Dr Com when we were asleep and dreaming the emotional areas areas of the brain. That make us feel feel good feel bad. They're highly active. And since we can't control what the dream is going to be like. Sometimes it's very joyful and we're very happy. Sometimes it's scary. Sometimes a monster might be there or a bad person is chasing us. But we don't have the brain that tells us no. There is no bad person like we do. When we're

How Amazon's Counterfeit Products Threaten Safety

"After I started digging into this whole counterfeit issue on Amazon together with some of my colleagues leagues. We wanted to see firsthand. What was going on so Cardiff? We decided to order a car seat from Amazon. This carseat looks like a copy of the Dune. A brand the Dune Lebron's Iran. It's just kind of fancy brand kind of combination carseat and stroller and it retails for about five hundred dollars a lot of celebrities own them and it's an attractive you've target for counterfeiters. The listing on Amazon. It didn't use the brand name Duna but it showed photos of real donors including one of vodka trump with hers when the product arrived. It also looked a lot like do not including copying elements of the design. The company says it has patented. We showed the seat to this woman at least bear. She's better are known as the car seat lady. She's a car she lady. Yep She's got quite a following. She's a pediatrician. And car. Seat safety advocate all the interviews. You'll hear in this podcast caster from my piece for CNN. If you look here it says `I ways not always use seatbelt if you noticed spelling errors in the labeling of the a car seat that should be a red flag manufacturers are very diligent about the grammar and the spell checking of their labeling and instructions. She also noticed some other things that she thought were red flags like labeling in the wrong language stitching that went through the webbing of the safety harness thing. She said you wouldn't normally see in a car seat and and of course you might think that there's no way to actually tell if a car seat is safer not unless you like crash it really quickly into the wall with your kid in there and you're not GonNa do do that Pamela. Had to get around that so we crash tested it. Oh okay right not with a real kid of course with approved dumbing. I'll take your word for for it. We sent the car seat to the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute they ran it through a basic thirty mile an hour crash test. This is something that all car seats that are sold in the. US are supposed to pass and it failed. They were bits of plastic flying off of it and the car seat with a toddler inside it actually slid forward and twisted a bit and Pamela. You said that bear and another pediatrician looked at this video and said that a child in this seat would have been at serious risk of head and neck injuries so really scary stuff. For comparison. We did run the same test on a real dune and it passed. The seat stayed in one piece and in place. I'm ED. Raviv Dune as commercial manager manager said that his company there flagging these fakes to Amazon regularly. We've taken down just this year more than forty pages which had infringing aging products are fake products just on the Amazon platform alone. And if you -SSUME that each one of these pages is up for you know three to seven days. Then you're talking about the good period of the year in which fake products dangerous products are being sold on Amazon. We sent the results of this crash test Amazon and after that they e mailed customers to urge them to stop abusing it immediately and they offer them a full refund all right so like service journalism. You get some results. We're happy to see that all done car seats are just one example of this problem though. We also bought a toy with magnets that didn't meet federal safety standards. I spoke to a company that made swallows for babies. They had a customer return one because his zipper pulled off a potential choking hazard and when they got this Waddell into their office they realized it was a counterfeit. Okay and Pamela. You actually did reach out to Amazon and were they. He said was. These are isolated incidents. That safety is a top priority for the company Amazon also made the point that sellers themselves are responsible for meeting Amazon's high bar for the quality of products for complying with laws and regulations. Now Amazon they are trying to tackle this counterfeit problem more than two hundred thousand brands issue. Something called the Amazon Brand Registry. This gives them tools to help them find and flag suspected counterfeits and Amazon also use automation to scan and proactively remove move suspicious listings. Yeah there's other Amazon program as well called transparency which lets companies tag each product with a unique code and that code can then be scanned to verify a five. The product is real. Although companies in that case need to buy the labels themselves in absorb the cost of adding these coach their products Amazon also starting to let some brands remove counterfeit listings on their own. The companies. I spoke to say Amazon's efforts. They have really helped especially in the last two years but they still oh complain. The responsibility and the cost of policing fakes feels like it. Falls on them. Rather than on Amazon they all describe it as an endless game of whack. A mole against counterfeits. Take one down another one pops up. Here's Ommiad Raviv again from tuna. It will be great if Amazon steps up and works with the brands and with the different advocates in the US in order to prevent these products from ever coming to the platform as opposed to removing them. Worse than what we there for. It's part Amazon on said that it invested four hundred million dollars in two thousand eighteen to build programs make sure the products that offers on its platform or safe and comply with regulations relations. So Cardiff something. I thought was really interesting. was that a couple of the people I spoke to. They mentioned they thought the current situation is only going to really change if Amazon and other ECOMMERCE platforms are held liable for safety defects trademark issues related to these goods sold by third parties. Yeah something interesting that you told me Pamela. was that right now. Courts don't see Amazon as the legal seller in these cases of third party sales so they treat Amazon kind of like a flea market. There's a problem. The liability is with the vendor. The stall at the flea market not Amazon which is like the landlord that oversees the space where the flea market stall is a lot of dates back to a ten year old case involving tiffany the jewelry brand and Ebay it set up this idea that the law treats ecommerce really differently differently from a physical store like a target or your corner grocery those physical stores. They may not make the products they sell. But they're still liable for problems with them But this could change recently. An appeals court rejected. This interpretation for the first time the judges in that case they were like look Amazon has so so much knowledge and control over it sales platform and it's so hard for the average person to try and track down and sue a third party seller. We should hold Amazon reliable. That court decision is going to be reviewed next month by the entire Third Circuit Court of Appeals. The legal community is watching really closely three different lawyers. I spoke with thought a change might be coming. It might be this case. It might be another one but they sense that something is starting to shift

"waddell" Discussed on The Unbeatable Mind Podcast with Mark Divine

"And what do I what do I you know into. What have in some ways? And so so I actually cut myself off e consciously in some ways from my greatest greatest power from the sense of realizing possible his sense of of being in that moment and winning winning the moment and and in some ways like depression became became the companion. Kanye interesting government. Doing whatever you're doing during the day and you come home and go into the office. Okay Okay Oh there it is okay. You had to let that you had to feel that you had. There's is probably twenty two years of feelings that you needed to let flow to float cut off yourself from Yup. I think that's part of it. And and it's funny because Kilimanjaro was the thing that got me reignited because you had another our purpose another purpose and a lot of I joined a group I had no desire joint right nobody. Nobody asked to become disabled right. Oh parking spaces says this is the special pass rate. No it wants to be part of that group I could never none of my saying my life is my life is is fulfilling. The quality of my life is great. But but I didn't want to join that group but at the same time I essentially became an advocate for that group because we're invisible and a lot always because from the time we're a little we're taught there looks different right. Yeah no that was. Poignant sorry to interrupt you. Said last night was really interesting. I mean one of my best friends. Friends is in a wheelchair and he's broke his neck twice. I mean he recovered in walked up to the first one when he was in twenty athlete and that helped and then it happened again when he is like fifty fifty two or something and he hasn't been able to get up Outta the chair since and I see him every day because he's running our foundation which we work with veterans who are suffering hiring from postman express and are suicidal. And they're also didn't ask to join that club no not at all right there at an inflection. Point to twenty is is not as visible when they feel invisible too. Yeah they feel invisible but then it's also like wheelchairs visible where the. Ptsd you look like a normal person right so it's different in one case. They don't see themselves and they won't look at themselves and in your case most people won't see you because they're taught thought they don't know how to deal with it dealt with this. I have to tell us one thing because really interesting. We run a company Seal Fed. And so I have seal coaches who try to help. People wake up and transform and find their find a deeper part of themselves and we didn't event with a bunch of disabled both veterans and athletes and we pair haired him up. It was a twelve hour nonstop kind of Navy seals style training we pair them up with executives. From why Peo- swim buddies. It was the most profound experience for everybody even even us as coaches but one of the things that the disabled athletes warriors loved was that we you you know. We don't look at them any differently than any other athlete or any other warrior right. You're missing a leg okay fine. We'll work around. That enriches at the modify defy things or you know you. Can't we'll work on that your work around that but I'm not gonNA treat any different. This is your challenge you in fact in a lot of cases you have to help the CEO. And that's what happened all these all these warriors and athletes were helping these. CEO's get through this event. Yeah because they were the strong ones it was. It was just so profound and we're just like it was one of the most humbling experiences ever. It's inch I so I am. I am in the midst. I've shot a pilot for TV. Show that that I want to create and want to host called. I wish I could. That's what we're doing. Is We're flipping perception of disability upside down when an expert with a disability teaches the two people off the street then adventure how to do something or something new adventure that's cool. Yeah 'cause I mean the Assumption is oh I've got to help you out and it's like no. I'm the expert here right on. I need your help right. Oh this is a little scary. I know you'll be. You'll be fine here. Let me talk you through. What's going on and I think that that's that's the part of it that that we as human beings oftentimes we have a bit of a superman fetish in some ways of like? Okay well. Those people like the Superman that like. That's that's somebody who can teach me something but our eyes aren't really open to well. This is somebody who is passionate about about something and one you can teach me to be passionate in some ways I can see the passion and go. Oh that's something that's really important but to most people know something about something. There's always something to learn from somebody else. Yeah Oh yeah absolutely. That's very cool so you retired from sports and how did you've mentioned Kilimanjaro. So that was like something to kind of like snap you out of your reverie and get you focused on something and then how did that lead to your current trajectory as speaker and helping other people kind of realise what's possible. I think that there's a there's a big part of so one Kilimanjaro. The appealing part about Kilimanjaro is is that we're we're all climbing our mountain right matter who we all metaphor. We're all says if Israel were pushing the ball you actually technically speaking. You took a bike up that you hand peddled yes. It was a hand cycle bike. It's Kinda like it's Kinda looks like Mars rover married arm pedal power wheels. Do they have big boehlke wheels to get get over the rocks and stuff it had. Its we actually used Wheels that are used for riding bikes on the on the snow. All right so there four inches wide and we're running two to three pounds of pressure so the the tire would literally just invalid. Rocks didn't have we didn't have much of a Nabi on it at all Jimmy Cricket and just just paddling what a grind. How long did that take it? took six and a half days up and it took a day and a half down and I was flying at a two and a half miles an hour down. That's GonNa know on the way. Oh that's when I was actually I think they're on the way down. I probably I probably hit twenty two hundred miles. An hour is actually a good clip. Considering during most people walk about maybe four miles an hour you know yes so the first two thousand feet. I did in under an hour which ages really tracking pace. Yeah people do thousand thousand feet in our kind of thing and so so that was that was that was cool but I was also on effectively like a road so made it relatively easy as dirt road but then then as it got more technical and technical for me is stuff that you stop over right right over here I okay. I've got to figure out how to all these things are just the you had a support team I imagined we had. I had eight people on my team we did. We did a film on a documentary. The film and so we had to camera two camera. People sound slash everything. I mean the guy who's responsible for the diesel power generator at my director had my guide. We had a doctor who ski raised with me in College. And we had the guys that the chair of my board those were team and then we had sixty nine porters each camera person I think had five or six porters carrying gear. We had somebody you just carried my everyday wheelchair. We had the people carrying the food the the chefs APPs. You know everything. Yeah Circus I have to tell you. It's popping my head right now but one of my friends got him. Kyle maynard was born with no arms and legs and run. Climb Kilimanjaro Literally Bear called up the whole freedom. I I can think of trying to think you've got to take his bike over and I'm thinking him bear calling up the Mon- I'm like people have no excuses whatsoever. You know what I mean. You got all arms and legs had nothing no excuses. That was one of the funniest thing. 'cause they're what I think. It's twenty five thousand people a year attempt to climate and it's about a fifty percent success. Is that right okay. And and it's euphoria when you make it to the top and so as you're going up somebody's invariably coming down coming down that same trail and you'd hear people that was the hardest thing I've ever done and then they'd see me and go suddenly really quiet. That's awesome so it was pretty funny but Kilimanjaro and Jarrah did for me is it allowed me to to have the platform than a lot of ways. I lost when I retired Ryan a platform to to to help hundreds of millions of people who are who are invisible to to be able to say to hopefully the change.

I approach it in a little bit different way Eh. But that's where and you have to find different avenues to be able to set so with my foundation. We do school program called name Tags looks at the labels that we put on ourselves and others which often are limitations. I can't do this because I'm too old. I'm too tired. I'm too fat.

And how can they show up because otherwise you finish. We can do whatever you want to do anything. I don't know what I WANNA do. I have to spend following the crowd. I guess I'll just do what everybody nobody else does and so doing that. That's where the television show comes in.

Oh well it simply for for the Children's for my second children's book on the climb working on my memoir doing a lot of speaking you know corporate speaking and stuff like that and trying to trying to trying to essentially create a community.

"What maroon five is. Maroon five big boy and Travis Scott boy big boy is also from. Outcasts from Atlanta. Travis scott. China's Scott is probably the most popular the probably the hottest rapper is is he also from nineties from Houston. But he's probably he's probably got the had the best year the last like three hundred sixty five days musically as far as like popularity look outside. I always tell you that the cool kids cool kids like to do the cool kids. Love the pan. The the halftime show. I'll be sitting there. They'll be a few lights blinking some fireworks going off. I think what is good museum. I that entertain me. Bright, people will say, oh, that sucks. LV the cool kids don't understand what the half the half times. Not for the sports fans the half times. Not for this sports fans are watching it. It's the Super Bowl the halftime shows to get everybody else in. That's why they do. That's why lady Gaga has done it before. Right. They're not after they're not asked for football fans. Football fans are watching the game. They're not after that target are people going to be within the halftime show five. I mean, look, I always feel like you should get people from the city. Knock on maroon five being chosen is because they're from. I mean animal beans from Minneapolis. Like, I feel like you should get like Elena has great music. I feel like you should get yours. Really good musicians out of Atlanta, both rock and pop and pop and hip hop and everybody it should be a celebration of the city. So you should do what what's mentioned country. There's no listen listen to Stapleton that put people to sleep. Listen, I think is countries they would get as if Taylor swift it that's about as country as the Super Bowl would get. Well, didn't you? Did she headline with you too? That's pop country. I think Waddell wants the the twangy the twangy country guest appearance or was that a no with Timberline? He come on with. That was at the Grammys wasn't it. Oh, maybe I think it was at the grand, Justin Timberlake, Tennessee kids. You know that is that country. Don't was lady Gaga than coal play. Before that, Katy Perry was the most watched Super Bowl halftime show ever. Okay. Wait a second. Jason aldean's is from Georgia Luke Bryan's from Georgia because she year would from Georgia was a perfect, but those are perfect pop country guys for sure absolutely that would be better than ruined five. So I'm not panning it because Jason. I don't think that it's maroon five is bad. I think that it's you should be showcasing the artists from the city like when it's in Miami get pit bull to do it. Let's do it. Let's get pimple is anybody else. Doing like, it alternative halftime show. Where do you remember back in the day? They'd say, hey, Simpson's are on for fifteen minutes or watch. What wasn't there something like that back in the day where you could go to a different channel, and they were programming specifically for half time to try to get people who didn't like the NFL's halftime show or am I making this? I think you're very young. No, you're right. I remember being very young and MTV doing this. Right. W E is bringing back. Halftime. He is an alternative. Asking. That's what I'm asking. Just be the halftime show. Let me see some wrestling. We call a wrastling. Sorry. Guess who's here? It's marching Greco lean. Means we need car fifty three right now. I promise that as soon as Mark would walk in we need car Fifty-three last man on the roster, and you need to give us the super me day. Yeah. Was you look tired you. Okay. I'm really tired. You can see. No pain over the fact that the patriots are there for the ninth time. I seen it on the air today. They're gonna win their six Super Bowl. And I just have to eat it. That's all the eat everything. Anyways. Silly was kicking salad on Sunday kicking you down to water. My wife actually is going to make her own salad on on Sunday. So it'll be a fresh salad with whatever whatever she's gonna deems to your house run like nineteen miles then I'll just have salad and water, and then I'll run home. Now you want? No, I won't. Hi, tammy. How're you doing? Yeah. Of course, this is a big picture of you next to them. We start your boss today violent. Yes. Yeah. Your boss came up today. He still didn't know what days you're on. He's Tuesday Thursday. Name is John. Let's go. Let's get down here with the people figuring listens only because he's afraid of what you may say. And he may cringe. I think you know, it's going to get back to him. True. I've been good. Well, we have an instance a couple of days ago. Doesn't matter. We got the seven second delay. We got dump button over on the TV side. It's trouble. Yeah. I think you're tired. I think we all are tired because I believe I think we went through the worst weather week in nature. When it's this cold and this dark all the time. Don't forget the week started with a sizable snow. Yeah. But the sure sign of spring cups and SOX loading up all their stuff in their trucks. That part of the presentation on the sports. Yes. Shipping them out to Arizona. I saw that. It's nice. It's hard to believe. It's already time for that. Well, we need it. Yeah. We Jimmy we've been in the doldrums sports wise just making stuff up signs to find out where Machado's going. That's packed Shelly. Sure. Z in that they have one. Yeah. Don't you think they have a Machado jersey? Or do you think they would think that's a jinx? Do you think when do they want to both teams report officially what's the day today the first days from now, I don't you think that both Machado in Harper will be signed by someone before I would think so collusion if they're not in spring training. It's just an all the owners are like, you know, what we're just gonna. We're just not gonna go there. We're not gonna go to bills. My guess is they're willing to spend money. On a yearly basis, but the length of the deal is into the liking of the agents and the play I'm with you. We talked about this last week about why wouldn't much I don't want to two or three or deal same with Harper. Then you renegotiate again. Or if you just lazy you wanna lock it in for seven get your one eighty one ninety whatever. The team would rather have. Shorter deal for sure you think. Yeah. I mean, they're twenty six years old. Do you think if you if the cubs could have you for five years, let's say five years two hundred million dollars? That's forty million a year or three years one hundred twenty five million. What are you? What are they take it? I don't know you gotta factor in so many things I mean, Bryce Harper in a down year last year and his stats are trending downward. Good it good second half of the second half. And then you know, what? I mean, if you're. Winning the homerun derby and all that stuff. Would you rather have one of those guys if I told you it's one or the other there's no opt out any you either have to have them for five years or for three years. If you're the team, you're running the team, you're THEO or your Rick on what are you choosing three years or five years for either one of these guys? It's a great question. I'm going to go three. I'm good as you get his best three years twenty six twenty seven twenty eight years old. We'll see how it worked. And then we'll we'll Tak it then and the price will probably go down at twenty nine. No or is five like the perfect amount of time thinking for guys that are twenty six if but if I am truly believe in these guys like there are any real obvious Ward's. I would think five years would be something. I'd be willing to do. Maybe Yance tough. Let's go for no. Machado thing about is. He going to be a mentor the chemistry going to be right on the south side with him here. Oh, yeah. He's got all the boys club. What Machado goes out and hits forty two bombs drives in one hundred and ten and he's playing gold glove defense, and he's gone.

Why Are Some Words Funny?

Why Are Some Words Funny?

"In the nineteen seventy-five movie, the sunshine boys, an aging vaudeville, comedian explains a classic truism of comedy to his nephew the case. Sound is always funny. The comedian played by Walter Matthau said fifty seven years in this business. You learn a few things, you know, what words are funny. And which words are not funny. Alka seltzer is funny. You say alka seltzer. You get a laugh, Casey Stengel. That's a funny name. Robert Taylor is not funny. Cupcake is funny tomato is not funny. Cleveland is funny. Maryland is not funny. Then there's chicken chicken is funny. Pickle is funny. And it's true. If you need a place name for a punchline, you're guaranteed to kill with Kalamazoo, connected key or Rancho Cucamonga, but why psychology professor Chris Westbury at the university of Berta has a fascinating theory. And it's based on perhaps the two unfunny est words in the English language statistical, probability Westbury. Published a paper in October of two thousand eighteen in the journal of experimental psychology with a first rate title, Wrigley, squeaky, Lennox and boobs. What makes some words funny in his research? He started with the list of the five thousand English words rated funniest by real humans and constructed a working with medical model for predicting the laugh factor of nearly every word in the dictionary. When Westbury applied his model to a data set of forty five thousand five hundred and sixteen English words, it decided that these ten words were the funniest of all up Chuck bubbly Baath wriggly. Yes, giggle. Kuch Cafa puffball and gigli runners-up included squeaky flappy and bucco and the perennial favorites of every eight year old on the planet poop, puke and boobs on the other end of the spectrum the word found to be the absolute least funny was harassment. In his paper Westbury explains that philosophers have been trying to unravel the mystery of humor for millennia Plato and Aristotle we're big fans of humor seeing it mostly as a way of denigrating and feeling superior to others Casero introduced incongruity theory, a writing that the most common kind of joke is when we expect one thing and another is said in which case our own disappointed. Expectation makes us laugh while the incongruity theory of comedy makes perfect sense of even rainy tins. Find switcheroo tricks high. Larry's Westbury says that it's not a true scientific theory in the clearly not every incongruence event is as funny as another a random coughing fit in a crowded movie theater isn't nearly as comical as a random farting fit. I mean, just try to say random farting fit without smiling. So the goal of Westbury's modeling experiments was to go beyond philosophical theorising and come up with a truly quantifiable scale of funny to do it. Westbury analyst words. In two different ways by their meaning and by their form for the first analysis. The researchers looked at semantic predictors. That group words with similar meanings. Using a free tool developed by Google that identifies words that are commonly used for one another aka co occurrence Westbury mapped out the semantic relationships between two hundred and thirty four of the human picked funniest words from this correlation plot, the researchers identified six different clusters or categories of funny words, insult sex party animal bodily function and expletive. Now. This is where things get dangerously mathematical since many of the words on the human rated funny list fell into more than one category. Other researchers needed a more precise measurement of how a words being translated into comedy using the Google tool. They came up with lists of words most closely related to each of the six categories, then they came up with the average values for each of those word categories. Using something called linear regression analysis. Those average values for each category. You know, insult expedited cetera became known as category defining vectors. When looking specifically at meaning it turns out that the funniest words don't necessarily fall cleanly into the most categories, but are the words whose mathematical values are the closest on average to those six category defining vectors. Here's how Westbury summed it up in a press. Brief the average similarity of a words meaning to these six categories is itself, the best measure, we found of a words funniness, especially at the word also has strongly positive emotional connotations. But meaning is only one type of measurement Westbury and his team looked at the form of funny words, a things like word length or the individual sounds or phonemes that make up each word in the second analysis the data fit nicely with the incongruity theory of humor. It turns out that the fewer times a word or its phonemes appear in the language. The funnier we think they are that helps explain why there are so many K and use ounds in funny word lists. There's typically improbable where it's ending in L E. Like Waddell in wriggle or another source of funds suggesting as the study, put it repetition usually with diminutive aspect. So why are we laughing? Now, this is where things get really weird the human brain seems as running all of these complex mathematical models all the time without any of us knowing it as we watch TV and read and talk to people our brains are constantly parsing language for subtle semantic, cross-connections and statistical probabilities and the result, at least on this basic one word level is what we call humor Westbury said if asked which letter is more common p or be I think the average person would have no clue consciously, but unconsciously they are sensitive to that. And we know that because they're funding this judgments are reflecting. Exactly that kind of fine tuned calculation. In other words, said Westbury people are using emotions to do math. Westbury argues that all of this makes perfect sense. Abolution airily our brains had been hardwired over millions of years to identify anything that's out of the ordinary as a potential threat and human emotions, including humor likely developed as ways of responding to improbable events and environments Westbury summed it up people laugh based on how improbable the world is. Of course, it's a long conceptual leap from predicting the funniness level of individual words to modeling the comedic mechanics of knock knock joker salty Limerick. But whispers, work points the way, maybe someday we'll finally understand why that chicken crossed the road. One thing's clear, though, a frog wouldn't have been half as
