"I don't think the big guy can let you go. Okay, just because it was hard to hear. Gates said the boss. Yeah. Has still has a very favorable view of you. I don't think the big guy can let you go down for this. Gates at one point told Trump he was working on getting him a pardon, but was hesitant to say more backstage as the event. He said, since there are many, many recording devices around right now. He set into a recording device. Right. So, once again. Dumb, really dumb cross. Dumb water game. I do not feel in a position to speak freely about the work I've already done on that subject. He said into a recording device. The lawmaker also told stone during their conversation that stone was mentioned a lot in a redacted portions of the Mueller report. He said they're going to do you because you're not going to have a defense. Oh, I see. That's him knowing that he's a complete traitorous crook. Yeah. But okay, Mueller's report just a review said that it was possible that Trump had both lied to investigators and about his contacts with stone and was aware that stone might provide damaging testimony against him if he chose to cooperate, which is why he got the pardon. See, because he was stone would have been the one that would have connected him to WikiLeaks into the whole Travis over here pay attention to me. He would have never because he would have gone down for the original treason and not gotten to this reason. Hattie. Okay, so much season. Yeah. That part to be there for Trump. Yeah. It's just my memory. The big guy. The big guy. I'm sorry, the big guy, the big guy. Andrew weissler weisman speaking of which Mueller prosecutor tweeted I on the clock. Oh, I hear the big 60 minutes clock in my head all the time. If Trump is indicted, it will take at least a year or more for a trial to start. And then appeal of any conviction. That is all okay if a Democrat wins in 2024 or the rare Republican who would not pardon Donald Trump. Otherwise, a new Republican potus can end the case. If you need any other reason to get out in 2022 and 24, that would be. Yeah. Yes. Rob Reiner says group politics group hole numbers Joe Biden has a record of accomplishment in the first two years of his presidency that has gone gone unmatched for almost 60 years. Thank you uncle rob. Thank you. I wonder if anybody else is paying attention. That's shop records in 50 years. That's not important, you know. Marianne Chicago. Hi, Mary. I go ahead and take off a secret phone call. Okay. I would love to get your help with something that just sticks in my craw and you've got such a big microphone and audience that I think you could help. With the messaging, I think the single most important thing we could do to get people out to the polls this year is to stop referring to them as midterm elections and start calling them what they are. Congressional elections. Every two years the entire house is flipped, has that potential right? These are all up for grabs and a third of the Senate. So if we start kind of conveying the importance of these elections really can't we can really get people out to the polls, but when we call them midterms, they sound optional. We really need to give them the importance they deserve. Congratulations. If you think democracy is optional, right? You are correct. Yeah. Democracy. Not optional. There's our other tag. Thank you. Also, look at this. I just got one of my sexy liberal state democracy tour t-shirts. Look at it. We have three fantastic designs. It's beautiful. I'm very patriotic. Okay. I'm just saying. We have also in honor of Jared Kushner and Peter Navarro. I would pick up, I'm not going to buy your stupid book T-shirt. Yes. Also, any one of the three alpha liberal shirts. Those are fantastic. Yes. And they're not just on the way. They're not just shirts, you can get them on mugs on clocks on Meg, you know, unmanaged on stickers if you don't want to spend a whole lot of money. I was confused the first time on the website. It comes up on some object and you might think I don't want that thing, but if you click on it, you can see it on the design on everything. Or duffel bag, or backpack. No. All right. Michael and Oakland. But coffee mugs are great. Yes. Hi, Mike. Welcome. All right. I just wanted to comment on this advice of counsel defense that Trump seems to be trying to put together. Right, that he hired crazy lawyers and then took the crazy lawyers advice. Well, yeah, his lawyers have leaked the thing that said that he's got a defense if he quotes subjectively believe that he won the election. Subjectively believe. Right. And then as if to say, well, if I just believe that my neighbor's car is mine Swine back then. Would that have been a defense? Well, in a guy that spent his entire life in New York City doesn't know where the four seasons is instead he picked like a landscaping office to pitch this nonsense at the foresee about the four seasons and the fake collectors. Thank you, Mike. I appreciate it. I don't know who's that would have been a weaker defense. I would have said I was drunk. I can't believe you did that. Okay. I'm just not certain whether it's something you can use at all. Well, it's a chuck Tom. You give us an you give us money to hang out with you. So we have to do what you say. You're paid Friends. Yes. This is more of that than the. Okay. All right. Brian Tyler Cohen tweets the same Republicans who falsely are falsely claiming the veterans healthcare bill has a $400 billion slush fund voted for the same bill in June. They are trying to distract from the fact they blocked it because they are mad about the inflation reduction act. It is a game to them. Why just, again, mainstream media not call bold on any of these Republicans saying that. This is the exact same bill they voted for. Okay. And doctor Jack Brown quickly

"Everything in there that's conceivable, you know? Right, okay, because I've only ever heard that and then once I was watching, you know, English show, a British TV show recently.

Yeah, there are other people have played around with it, a plate of fries, a plate of chips, a plate of green beans, a plate of biscuits and gravy.

"What book is it? And he said, we'll make it a mystery like that chapter out of it. He was like, his name's Lyman, and we would always refer to him as Lima ism, because he's full of catchy little phrases and such. That's marvelous. I love it. Making a Whipple for reduces poke or a hoot nanny for a sky wampus or a Tim paddle to tie up the moon. I mean, there's so many of these. And I hope we've helped get to the bottom of this mystery for you. You have. Thank you. I can't wait to share it with my dad. Take care now. Hi to Lyman. Thank you. Bye bye. Thank you. Bye. Bye bye. We'll share your family's phrases with us, 877-929-9673 are send them to us in email. That address is words at wayward radio dot ORG. Hello, you have a way with words. Yeah, hello. My name is Gerald. I am in gasby point Rhode Island. Welcome to the show. What's up? I have a question about the word dashboard. I think I can parse out where the board part comes from, but the dash part. I'm baffled by. So you're thinking about the dashboard on a car or a vehicle? Yeah. Yeah, and you're exactly right that dash is the key part of that word. In the 1300s, dash meant to strike suddenly and violently, but over time it also came to have the meaning of to sprinkle or to splatter. So if, say, you ran through a driving rain to get to my house, Gerald, and you showed up at my door, I might say, you know, come on in, your clothes are dashed with mud. And that's the kind of dash that we're talking about here because back in the days of horse drawn carriages, the term dashboard was applied to this panel of wood or leather that went in front of the driver. It was set on the carriage in front of the driver and passengers to keep them from being dashed by water or mud or snow. The term applied to that panel was then applied later to the panel that protected the occupants of horseless carriages from the heat of the oil and the engine. And then over time we kept adding things to it, dials and other options. So it's really this vestige of the old days when you had to protect yourself against mud and water and snow. Nice. Well, that's a great explanation. I kind of expected something like that. But oh, did you? Didn't know. What brought it to mind? Why were you thinking about dashboards? Well, it wasn't, it wasn't actually in reference to a vehicle at the time. I was using a dashboard to manage something on the social media account. Yeah. That's where I wanted to go with this, exactly. It is very interesting that it's now made this third jump into the computing world where it's a screen or interface that shows us statistics or charts or analyses of our underlying data in a human readable format, right? Yes. And who knows? Maybe there'll be a fourth act who can say when we get these neural implants. We'll have middays, maybe. Well, Gerald, thanks for the call, really appreciate it, take care now. Yeah, thank you. Thank you. Bye bye. Is there a word or phrase that's puzzled you? Call us about it 877-929-9673 or send it to us in email that address is words at wayward radio dot org. And if you just can't wait, hit us up on Twitter. We're at wayward. Hi there, you have a way with words. Hi. This is Laura, calling from Dallas. Hey, Laura, welcome to the show. What can we do for you? Well, thank you so much. I'm really excited. I have a question about a phrase that I've been hearing a lot. My parents say it and my mom said, my grandma said it as well. And it is another country heard from. And what context would you hear this in? Well, I have a ten month old daughter. And so she'll be kind of playing quietly and all of a sudden she'll start babbling or talking and my mom will say, oh, another country heard from. Where my same with my little baby cousin, he'll be fast asleep and all of a sudden he's awake and talking and this, okay, another country has from. So it's when somebody just kind of somebody blurts something out. They were unexpectedly speaking and you hadn't expected them to put in any input at all. Exactly, yes. It almost is like their way of acknowledging the baby. It's usually towards the babies, but like that they have joined the conversation and it's kind of like a, it seems like a welcome. Yeah, okay. Have you ever heard them say it in a dismissing way to an adult? Like somebody gives an unwanted opinion or gives an opinion where they weren't asked for an opinion? Not really dismissing, but more of my younger sister if we're all here together and maybe she sleeps later than everyone else. And then she will slowly come down the stairs after everyone is already, you know, talking and having breakfast, then she might get, oh, another country heard from. You finally decided to join us. Yeah, maybe that is a good use. I like that one. She's all where's the coffee? You'll sometimes also hear it if somebody breaks wind or burps. Sometimes you'll hear somebody say that in response to that. But you'll also hear another county heard from without the. And that actually was the original form going back to 1868. And so it's got a long history. Now, I'm going to throw a bunch of stuff here at you. So bear with me, okay? Okay. The expression had a burst of popularity in the 1876 presidential election. Now this was when Samuel J tilden was against Rutherford B Hayes and they had this campaign and even the election tally after all the votes were cast was so close that the ballot recount when it was reordered was like a county by county thing. And some of the far flung counties were very slow to report. So when the newspapers reported on the ballot slowly coming in, they would headline these little blurbs, another county heard from with the results from that county. So we're going to keep up. This was in the newspapers at the time. However, even though a lot of books will tell you that this expression comes from that election, it does not come from that election, although the election may have firmly permanently put it into the lexicon because that expression existed before that election. It appeared before that election in ads and editorials, letters, headlines, and so forth. And it always is like you've used it. It's always like, okay, here's an opinion. Here's somebody spoke up that we weren't expecting to hear from, or sometimes it's kind of dismissively used. That's why I asked about that. Here's something we don't care about with a thing that they insisted on saying. In newspapers, it's like letters to the editors. Here's somebody with an off the wall opinion that we decided to print just so we can make fun of them. That sort of thing. And they'll title it another country heard from. Sorry, another county heard from. But somewhere around 1900 or so, it starts to switch to another country heard from. I don't know why, but my theory is and Martha, I don't know what you think about this, but my theory is, this is when the United States start to be a little more worldly. And we started to get more international news in our newspapers. And another county heard from started to disappear from popular speech and you just don't find it that much anymore. And you also will see variants like another city heard from or another ward heard from. Award is a voting district in the city. Anyway, that's what we know. So 1868. Every time this comes up, Martha and I both furiously look at all the old databases to see if there's anything new and we can create it. We can never find it earlier than 1868. I look desperately, but I can never find any earlier than that. Interesting. Thank you so much. That's great. Yeah. We were happy to hear from your country. So thank you for calling. Oh, thank you so much. Thank you. Take care now. Bye bye. Thank you. Bye bye. And we would be happy to hear from your county or country to 877-929-9673.

"Yeah, and she made a shirt for it too. Yeah. Yeah, you have to spell cuppers, see you PPA, but had a tonic cup of cappuccino, ta-da. And there's a wonderful segment where she and one of her music students play pilot, music passages from Bach, which require that you play a passage forward and backward at the same time in order for it to be what the composer intended. And it's quite lovely. Both of them have these burping bed posts as they're called. And it's really quite brilliant.

"Don't want to be licking your computer screen though. No. I'm going to lick your Windows 10 installation. And then there's an expression that Martha brought up on the show once, which on one meaning it's Mexican Spanish slang. And one meaning it means to kind of scope out good-looking people in its itar un taco de ojo to throw a taco of the eye, but in another meaning it can mean to look but not by. Of course, window shopping itself in English can also mean to kind of cast admiring glance at all. The good-looking people around you without any intention of really going after them are asking them for dates or anything. But Martha, we have to mention the Canadian one. That's maybe maybe we can just borrow that one. What do you think? Oh, that's a fun one, yeah, I like that one. Twain? Tracking. That's Newfoundland, right? Yeah, yeah, you hear it mostly in Newfoundland. Let's go Twain. It's a window shopping dates back about a hundred years, probably from British dialect term, which really meant to be indecisive or something along those lines. But for some reason, just kind of landed a Newfoundland and stayed there. So why don't we sandy? Why don't we just coin a word right now and we're going to borrow that Newfoundland term and say that if your window shopping on the Internet, you are tracking? Okay, that sounds great. It works. No? Yeah, instead of computer hacks, you have computer tweaks. I like it. Okay, sounds great. Do you have a better idea? Yeah. She sounds suspicious. Yeah, it's just sounds like she's ready to put us on a home, Martha. Well, you know, I will definitely tell her about family. What do you say though, sandy, if you're shopping and you're like, you want to tell something in your family that you were looking for baby clothes and you mean online? How would you just casually throw this sentence out there? I'd probably use browse to be drowsy online. I think I might just say shop. I don't know. I like wacky. I like twerking. I do too. Oh, sandy, thank you for the call. I know we'll get a lot of response. We'll ask everyone to send their suggestions for a new word for shopping on the Internet, all right? Okay, I appreciate you. Thank you so much. You guys have a great day. Bye bye. Thanks, sandy. Thanks to senior producer Stephanie Levine, editor Tim Felton, and production assistant Rachel Elizabeth weissler.

"Welcome. What can we do for you? I'm curious to know about a word that my father always used and then my sister reminded me also my mother used and that's what you call the end piece of the loaf of bread. We always refer to it as the couple. I never really thought much about it. It wasn't until I was older and married and somehow that came up and said, oh, well, you don't need the Cabo and he's like, what? Are you talking about? And he's like, oh, you mean the heel of the bread? I never heard that word, so. Wow, couple. I have to confess, I've never heard that used for the end of a loaf of bread. There are lots and lots and lots of terms. Have you heard that one grant? No, so that's Sue that's cuby LE. I have so that's the way it is. It's nothing that I had spelled. We didn't have that as a spelling word in class or anything. No, that's a new one on me, but lots of people have family words for that. Absolutely. For the end of the loaf, the last piece. The heel is the usual word. Correct. A lot of them have to do with parts of the body, like grant mentioned the heel. Some people call it the bread, but the nose. Oh. Right. Elbow. Yeah, in Spanish, the word is co though, which means elbow. There are a lot of family words as grant mentioned like bunts and tampi and then there was that come from people's different heritages like skulk, which comes from Norwegian for the end of the loaf of bread. So you have terms like buns and skirt and crunch and trona and tummy and canoes. One of my favorites is from Scotland. In Scotland, some people call it the outsider or the outsiders. Oh, well, maybe it's like, you know, everybody has their own name for when they were a kid, what their bottle was or their blankie, you know? None of you. Yeah. Yeah, that may have been what happened in your family. I guess so. Yeah. Yeah, we're just not we're just not coming up with anything that sounds like couple. But you can have it and you can be yours and you can love it. Thank you. And I deleted. Thank you for calling. You welcome, thank you. All right. Bye bye. Bye. Bye.

"Kirk, Kirk, weissler. We're gonna. This is gonna be a tough one Kirk, 'cause I'm Curt and your Kirk. How are you Kirk? That's gonna be great. And everyone always asks is it KRT? Yeah. Exactly. And as Kurt with a T, but you know, you can go a different direction. That's fine. Yours is the true. That's right. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Put yourself in the context of Kurt. As far as where you live, what do you do? That sort of thing. Sure. So I live in Gilbert Arizona. We've lived here about 7 years, moved here from Georgia, we're out there about 9 years. The girl I married, Rebecca, we've been hanging out together for 30 years. Wow. We met both rejected BYU students going to the community college, which from what I understand now is even bigger than BYU. You view. I was one of those rejects that ended up in norm as well. But we were there during the main change. You know, when Carrie Romans worked was there and they were changing from two to four years and then all that. But we have 6 children together. Three boys three girls. I make my living primarily doing coaching training leadership and culture based team building called I call it culture building training. I usually in person training. It's been a little slow this last year and a half for in person training. So I've done something called zip zap zoom, you know, how to build a virtual team, things like that to kind of fill the gap, but being with people is obviously just so much more fun. But we could, I'd be needing me with you in the studio and it would just be so fun. And I listened to you so much. So that's what I've done. That's what I do. And then I think the context that got you and I connected was my recent service as an LDS bishop. I know you do a lot of so much of what you do with benefits leaders as they're trying to work with the different populations and challenges they face. And so I think that's how you and I got connected and through SQL Friends. Yeah. And what do you remember from that as far as starting that experience as bishop? I mean is there a story there as far as how you recalled or what that experience was like because even though you're this guy that goes around coaches and presents about culture and leadership, I just feel like church leadership sometimes can be the great equalizer, right? That just brings everybody to the same ground zero and says, all right, now you give it a shot. What do you remember about that learning experience at the beginning? Yeah. Okay, so at some point, so I'm 57 now, so I was in my early 50s when this happened. And I don't know how old you look very young to me. I turned 40 this year, so. But think about the number of bishops we've been through. Yeah. And I'm assuming you served in LDS mission, I don't know, but if some missionaries, some missionary stay with one mission, president submission had the experience of being with two. And so you see these dynamics in leadership and styles and that kind of thing. And so our ward culture, we just barely moved from Gilbert, just very moved to go to Arizona from Georgia. So we got there during the summer. I mean, we were just unpacking when this happened. And so we didn't have any preconceived notion or experience. Our first couple of Sundays at church, most people were already gone on vacation because in Arizona, people during the summer exit the state. Makes sense. Like a snowbird opposite thing. So I don't have any idea. I looked at my wife and I thought, well, this is interesting. There's a lot of people they could choose from. So we're going to say this came from God. We're going to lean in and have a great experience. And then I had a few people from the state tell me that this particular ward was a little bit of a stepchild to the stake in that there was a little higher turnover, more of a starter homes. There's going to be more needs. That type of scenario. And I said, okay, well, I didn't know what that meant. And so but I was like any bishop, I was excited. And like any bishop, well, I think, I don't know what anybody should does with that. I know what I do that. I'm going to be the best. I'm going to break records. My job allows me to go over in the morning. I'm just going to read that hammock a couple times. It's the first couple of weeks. I'm just going to be right and then and then you get on you leave the MTC and you hit the mission. This is how this is going to go. Yeah. Does that sound familiar? Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. I'm going to make the state president so proud, you know? Trust me. I love that. Love that. And then how long did you serve as a bishop? 5 years. 5 years. Nice. So pretty, pretty typical for Arizona, right? I don't know. I think think so. There was threats from the state president that my call would be extended and shortened. So there was moments when there was moments when he said, you know, I'd be the bishop, but I never thought you would do that. And we'll talk about that a little bit. But he still loved me and I still love him. Yeah. So let's just go to the basics as far as culture is concerned. You know, through the lens of your experience as a bishop, but also as a speaker and consultant and coach. We hear this term culture a lot. And sometimes it's just it can feel more like a buzzword. I think generally people understand what we're saying about culture. And these phrases that you're religious community. Oh, that's not doctor, and that's culture. And it's really hard to sit down with the concept of culture as a leader and say, okay, now we're going to do a B and C so where do we begin to even understand what culture is or how we can start on this path of implementing a positive culture in award? Okay. Have you interviewed the guy that does the website, the art of manliness? Yeah, yeah. Okay, Brett McKay, yes. So yeah, he wrote an article called the father with intentionality. It's my go to short piece that I use with my corporations when I'm doing culture work. Because it's a 7 minute read that gives you a good concept. But I drafted a little something for you today, thinking you might ask this question. So here's what I wrote. Like families, every water branch or steak has its own unique culture. That feeling that's made up of our collective beliefs and attitudes and energy of the members and the stories that they tell themselves and others about themselves and others and about how the ward is and how the bishop is and how the young men's program is. You as a bishop saw people come in, they were kind of surfing your award. They were like, I can move anywhere in this community. I'm just going to reward hopping looking for that fit, right? Like, that just when they moved to a new city, we go to church by zip code, but that just go to church by preacher. Like, a one looking for the preacher that kind of fits my so while everyone contributed to the culture, leaders can play this key role in shifting and shaping that culture. And they will do this intentionally, as Brett writes, or they'll do it unintentionally, either way, you and I are going to shape that culture. So my question for you Kurt is, have there been times in your church? Think of it. Think about times in nutrients where you visit another ward and experience something about that other war that you're like, wow, that's that's cool. I mean, or that's remarkable, or man, I wish our board did that, or I'm gonna do that when I'm a bishop's update. Can you think of any specific things that you saw? Just specific thing. I'll give you one. Okay. Yeah. Haven't you? Haven't we all gone to award and go, man, these deacons in the sacrament? That's tight. Yeah. They were crisp. That would have taken us 15 more minutes. How'd they do that in 15 minutes, right? Like, wow, those guys, right? Or you go to this ward and there's this buzz. There's just this, I mean, it's not reverent, but there's a good feeling. There's all this buzz, and then the bishop brick stands and it just goes like, wow, this got quiet. Or going to a singles ward, where there is no children and going, it's too quiet. I'm right. But we go to these wards and we had these experiences and those experiences are part of that world's culture. And sometimes we're like, wow, that's cool, and sometimes we're like, oh, I kind of miss my work. Yeah. But we all belong to the same faith. We all have the same doctrine. So I've imagined I've often imagined this dream calling in the church, which is that whether Kirk wisely, you've been called to serve as a best practice gather your assignment as to visit rewards each Sunday.

"Would use it is to compare to things, so for example, if you asked me to cook a Thanksgiving dinner and I'm a terrible cook, then I would say, oh, I can't even cook for myself. Let alone cook Thanksgiving for ten people. So I would compare what you're asking with something that's even less than that. And say, I can't even do this. So forget about this other thing. And I would put the more extreme thing at the end. So that's how I always heard it used. And that's what makes sense to me. But I feel like lately in the last probably two or three years, I've been hearing a lot of people using it the other way around. Where they'll put this thing in question at the beginning and then the lesser thing at the end. So they'll say, oh, I can't cook Thanksgiving let alone cook for myself. To me, this just sounds so wrong. This is like nails on a chalkboard for me. I could just feel totally backwards. I'm hoping that you can just settle this for me officially. Yes, we can provide you some relief. Doctor Martha, we can help her, right? Yeah, so we have some great magazines while you're waiting. Yeah, I think you're really nailed it exactly right, traditionally, the harder things should come last. In your version, you said that I can't do X, which is an easy thing. And let alone Y, which is a harder thing. And that's pretty much how it has been and ought to be. And you're right. People do often put the difficult thing first. They say I can't even Z let alone X but what they should be saying is not even X so kind of what they're mixing here is these little idiomatic expressions all which are used to provide this range of possibilities of what they are are not capable of doing. And let alone, let's admit it is kind of a weird expression, right? Alone is not. It's idiomatic. It's hard to break down. What is alone mean? It's not really a modern phrase at all, right? So it's kind of opaque when you hear it being used. It's pretty easy to misunderstand it. Yeah. Right. True. That's true. But they're different phrases like that. It's the same kind of construction to say nothing of never mind or much less. Yeah. Yeah. And all of these can be used in the same way or they can be misused in the same way. So it's kind of an understand when it was like particularly with let alone, especially with let alone. Because let alone is just this odd little bird. If you saw this and you had your camera, you would take a picture of it because it would be the strange all the little Brown birds and this brightly colored one, you know? Look at this little bit alone over here. Yeah, look at this little let alone and you'd be showing to all your bird or friends. So I think you really nailed it. And I think it's a forgivable mistake, but it is an error. You're not the only person who's noticed this. Linguists have been researching complementary alternation discourse constructions. That's what they're called. Yeah. And we'll link to some very highfalutin academic papers when we post this to the website. They're pretty heady stuff. Yeah. But when I said there were magazines in our waiting room, these are not those. No pictures. These are the things we give you when you haven't been following the diet. We give you. Taking the pills like we recommend. I would expect no less. But we'll link to anyway because you might find some benefit. So just to be clear, since we said so much, let's make sure we talk about this one last time. It should be, I can't even toast bread, let alone cook Thanksgiving for ten people. So it's the easy thing first and the hard thing second. Yeah. Right. Perfect. Well, Stacey, thank you so much for calling. I'm glad you feel better. Thank you. Thank you for the matter soon. Come and see us in 6 weeks. We'll take the cast off. Thank you. Happy holidays to you guys. Bye bye. Bye bye. Well, if there's a word a phrase you're wondering about, give us a call. 877-929-9673 or send it to us in email, the addresses words that wayward radio dot ORG. Hello, you have a way with words. Hi, grant Martha. This is Jonah calling from Baltimore, Maryland. Hi, Jonah. Hey, Jonah. I'm a private music teacher. And as one of my ten year olds was packing up after our lesson, we somehow got to chatting about states we visited. So I asked him if he knew his state capitals. And he's a really confident kid. So he emphatically said, of course I do. So I said, okay, so do you know that capital of Maryland? And without missing a beat, he shouted MD, which I lasted. I laughed at, I said, no, I mean, the capital city. And then he just looked at me confused and went, oh no, I don't know those. That's so cute. So he used the initials and capital letters. Yeah, he used the capital letters. And you know, I guess it's an honest mistake. And when it comes to different uses of the capital, the word capital ending AL, I guess he was justified in answering the question that way. He just chose a different sense of the homonym. But then I got to wondering about the two different spellings of capital ending AL and OL. Which there are obviously two related words, but with divergence spellings. And specifically, I was wondering if you could clarify how we ended up with those two words and why when we heard a capital city, it's not spelled with an O's, since that's where the capital building is situated. Right, exactly. Yeah, you've zeroed in on the big difference that confuses a lot of people because as you suggested you only use the O for the capitol building, whether it's the U.S. capitol building, where Congress meets in Washington or in your case, the state House in Annapolis. That's the capitol, where the legislators meet. But it's in the capital city AL. And a lot of people have trouble remembering which is which, but the trick I use is either to picture the round dome of the capitol, which sort of looks like an O, or you can think about the letter O standing for only one that one instance of when you use the OL in the case of the building and all the other uses of capital are AL. And you're right that there may be a connection between the two, the AL capital, which we use for a lot more ideas like the main thing or a capital letter, it goes back to the Latin kaput, which means pertaining to the head. And so you get all kinds of meanings coming out of that kind of capital, like great or capital in money, as a matter of fact, like venture capital. That's originally from Latin parr's capitalis, the first part of a loan that's not the interest. And then the meaning expanded. The OL version capital goes back to Ancient Rome, where the great temple of Jupiter, which was this magnificent temple in Rome was located on the capitoline hill and there's a story in antiquity that is probably apocryphal about them starting to dig the foundation for this temple and they found a head when they were digging, and it was belonging. To somebody named Talia's or something like that. But that's probably just an etymological myth. But basically, they go back to the capitoline hill, which was with an O and then caput meaning head for all those other terms. Okay. So Jonah, I'm going to repeat that story from your student. I think that's hilarious. That was a great one. Yeah. Thank you for the call. A good luck with the students. Yeah, thanks for taking my call. All right, take care. Thanks, Jonah. All right.

"The guys who are tracking toward making up this this clubhouse this year. It's uh it could be a real interesting makeup. Well, what could that do for you guys? Yeah. I mean, it's fun is just I think it makes the camaraderie help out a little bit. When you got five guys with past experience of living together and playing together, and, uh, it makes makes attention a lot easier. And, uh, It's not a whole bunch of new personalities you're seeing, and then you start forming groups and everyone knows each other from various walks of life and all that. It makes the transition easier to get in the camaraderie going to go to the team chemistry going So what's the plan for balance your Seeger and Munsey this year? Yeah, Unfortunately, like my, uh I hate to say that I've like revealed the tricks out of my bag. But I come out to slide by Goo Goo dolls. A lot of fighters. Um, but, you know, maybe I'll throw more fastballs this year, but Now it's fun. I mean, I really enjoy facing those guys. And that's what gets my blood pumping the most is we you go face the Dodgers and that I think we all honestly play them so well because We? We want to beat those guys and it's just it's we always perform well against them. It's just it's fun going into Dodger Stadium, and I think we play him a little bit harder than most teams play him and It's just It's always a good syriza play against them. But it's a lot of fun in the off season of or even when you're throwing bullpens to imaginary batter. Last guy stepping in there, Cody Bell injury and L M V p like Artem out with a cider 01 or try to bust in on the hands of the fastball, and you play these mind games of yourself to prepare yourself when it really happens in May and June. Is that really how you picked your song because of the slider. No, it's Brandon Crawford picked it, so it's actually a funny story. But I was so Crawford picks rookies come up in September, Crawford picked all the rookies, songs and all that. Hey, got the select everyone's and hey, picked. Hey, pick slide for me by the Goo Goo dolls and everyone liked it. I thought it was great. And so they asked on the questionnaire to fill out my walk out song for this year for 2020. And I feel it out and I sent it upstairs and I come out in the first song. They played a slide by Goo Goo dolls. So anyways, ask again, I send up my my pick. I send it up there and they play slide again, and apparently, Crawford kept vetoing it and so I'm stuck with good, we all sides, so everyone liked it. And I guess I guess it's a little change of scene from heavy rock songs or AH, rap song or something like that. But The players seemed to like it in Crawford really appreciate that. I still come out this song they think, What's the song that you wanted to use? You know, I think I used I used some, uh I think it was like a maybe a Rolling stones song or somebody that I get is it wasn't a t d. C but it was something I can't remember off the top of my tongue. What? What It was, but it definitely wasn't good. It'll slide because you hear that hear the acoustics are to take off first and You're getting excited to come in and nine o'clock and in Oracle ballpark, your side of the face 2345 of the Dodgers, and then the acoustic guitar kicks in that kind of takes you down a little bit, but it works so well, take it. Yeah. I mean, you're in the minor leagues for seven years. You're a little harder than Google dolls, don't you think? Exactly exactly, But it's a brat like I was in the minor leagues for eight years, and you could play Beethoven out there, and I wouldn't care. I mean, just let me set. That's that's why he's got veto power. How long does the veto power go? I get it when you're a rookie, but come on. Yeah, I mean, as long as 35 still in Giants uniform, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be played. So keep it for a little while. Hopefully I love it's himself. It is with us, Sam. What do you think they are, They are amassing. Quite a group out there in the bullpen, and you said earlier. It's probably going to be closer by committee. I feel like in baseball. Everything is by committee right now. What do you think about that? Yeah, it Z kind of really fun to see our bullpen come together, and I thought Would a Jew bathe our pitching coach about this? Sometime of just we've amassed a team of Our bullpen of pictures that all come from different angles of we just signed Jake McGee, who's 96.4% fastballs last year, the top of his own. I threw 65% fighters that Weissler who I worked out with this offseason through 78% sliders. Tyler Rogers throws from the floor. Carrot. Caleb! Argh! Our throat. Asphalt at the top of his own hard. I mean, Harlan Garcia wanted for us to get guys out anyway, they come up. I mean, it's just way piece things together, and it's It's not probably the prettiest of the most expensive Bolton, but we get out so It gets the job done. So we're doing that?
