But that's not all that makes the island unique it's the backdrop for one of the most bizarre murder mysteries which includes poly-amorous fake teeth. Giant tortoises and murder. Today we're gonna talk about the galapagos affair so the human history of the glucose islands doesn't begin with charles darwin really though his visit in eighteen. Thirty five definitely. Put the islands on the map will literally put it on the map. Us whalers and pirates were already. they're hunting giant galapagos tortoises. These tortoises were actually very humongous. Very slow think like thousands of pounds and could live for years in the hold of a ship providing fresh meat on long. Voyages flurry an island in the galapagos. Has the most human activity and it's the only island with a fresh water supply in eighteen twenty. All the giant tortoises were killed on the island. When crew members of the ill fading whaling vessel essex torched it for no apparent reason after the essex left a sperm whale sunk their ship. So there you go for months. The sailors drifted helplessly in lifeboats sunburn. Starving before turning to cannibalism to survive. They drew straws to see who became food for the rest and then they do another straw to decide who would kill that person of the twenty crew. Only eight survived. They were found off the coast of south america. Insane and knowing that human bones their story inspired herman melville's novel moby dick.

"Now moving into today's podcast. We have got home have a Robinson on the show and have her is recognized as one of Scotland's leading Educators and Bridal hair Specialists within the hairdressing industry and you can find Heather online at HR hair. Co. Uk, but ever came to my attention during the first lock down. The reason she came to our attention was that she was creating some incredible lives on the Weller Global community and her stars are brighter. What was brilliant and looking deeper into heaven. I checked out so much of a work. I was really inspired what she was I loved the way she presented but what really grabbed my attention with her was that she was running a salon confidence club and this is about teaching hairdressers how to actually develop their confidence that really shocked the coughing. Maybe cuz I've been somebody that maybe has had passed worries of certain hairstyles or dealing with certain clients and your confidence can really wobble. We all know if your confidence looks a bit wobbly in front of a client and that can happen real knock-on effect for you working with that client. So that's what we're going to dive into with this episode today have us going to talk us around how you can develop your confidence. We're going to get Heather's back storage and we're also going to hear how she really wasn't interested in being a salon and why she wanted to be a freelance hair stylist educator. And also what is great in this episode is how much of a geek she is home address in and to hear people really passionate and see her dressing as a hobby. It's so inspiring and I think as we head now here in England into our second lockdown, I think it's now the time to really connect with who you want to be as a hairdresser go in forward. So I think you'll get loads out of it. And remember at the end of this we are going to drop off into the extra shows if you want an extra show remember page On. Com slash how to cut it. So let's get into this interview with today's guest have a Robinson. Welcome to the podcast ever. Hello, how you doing? I'm all right. Let's give a heads-up who you got in the background. You've got some company there tonight. Yeah, I've got login in the background now Logan is about going off all of them. Now if you watch Heather's lives. Yeah Logan has become the superstars the lives and this is f as dog by the way, and yeah, he was he was chilling out earlier when he having a good snort. Yeah. So in the background as always, it's like every time I go live if such stolen I'm like, I don't always try to tell me a little bit. So come on in have a there's a beautiful Scottish accent there firstly song Long listeners around the world. They want to know where abouts in Scotland are you from so I'm from Glasgow. I'm still in Glasgow. Just got Morgan Heard the door. It's fair to go through Thursday is by the way, you could see Logan in the background just a little wander around. Yeah, so I'm in Glasgow and I'm based in Glasgow snacks as possible. Yeah, it's quite yes. It's a little bit. Texas so we're going to today really I want to learn a lot more about you ever because I know so much about you yet. I feel like I know so little about you as well and I think for our listeners but the actual title we going with with this one today is be the bad a stylist you were born to be and I really want to jump into confidence as a hairdresser and how yeah because naturally we all just in addresses are super confident wage, but we're not and I want to go into that but first up just give us a background to you yourself at the hairdresser and the educator that you are so dead silent test for Life vests make an celebrating a thirty years in hairdressing since I went and got my first start to get old job, but I should have I know I can't believe it's not long and I'm not I've grown up enough to get it that long and but I have I've been a free-lance educator for the last four years as coming up to and pring. Is two that I was a full-time well educated as well. I still freelance in a silent a couple of days and a solid know and I feel as forging the soldier about three lines to work for Whaler and I Ramon courses and do and sell and training for silence as well. So you are a perfect example of somebody that works in a very you're not just doing the one part of hairdressing here, which I think is really interesting to hear isn't it? That is quite diverse when you say what you do. Yeah. I like have them back all the one left out as well because unfortunately it's not prominent just no but I'm also part of our wedding company too. So one of my friends just got our wedding can't lease or purchase required me to kind of like high-end weddings for like American guests coming over to get married in the Scottish castles.

Buy now, save later: financing vaccine candidates
"Up dumb. Right. Now, more than one hundred, seventy vaccines for covid nineteen or being developed across the world. Of, those six are in final large scale clinical trials. While the races on policy policymakers are. With two questions how much to spend on vaccines that may or may not win and how to ensure the winner or winners are distributed fairly, you cannot be no world where some people are saved another. Anglesey conjure a whaler is the chair of the Global Alliance for vaccines and aviation or Gabby. It's an alliance that funds vaccines for poor countries the steps that need to be taken to ensure vaccines that distributed fairly Require. Collaboration and solidarity of the world governing has set up what's called Kovacs purchasing pool for several late stage vaccine candidates is that facility it has ninety two developing countries in it low and middle income countries, and it also has seventy seven rich countries that have expressed interest by bringing them all together we will have an affordable price of vaccines for all. We have risk sharing in the facility for all, and this will ensure that so many more people in the world who would not have had access will have access so to. Be Equitable I need to be fair but equitable fair division is just one problem I for needs to be enough given vaccine to divide up governments around the world have invested so far at least ten billion dollars on Covid nineteen vaccines they have made forward purchases of about four billion doses so far more companies have essentially already started making some vaccines even before they have been proven to work Slovakia chunk of his or healthcare correspondent the contracts governments have cut with Pharma companies are for about four billion dollars of various vaccines. Now that may look like a lot when my think it's enough to cover most of the world, but it's actually nowhere near enough. Why not to begin with of these vaccines may turn out to be ineffective when the clinical trials are all done. A typical vaccine at this stage has about the twenty percent chance of payer, and some of these vaccines also use novell technologies that haven't been used in any other approved vaccine before. So the risk of failure could be even higher. The biggest issue is that manufacturing capacity globally is limited and there would be shortages, the files and the ingredients that are used in vaccines once manufacturing begins on a large. So I'm experts think that the feasible amount of covid nineteen vaccine the will have by the end of next year is just about two billion dollars. In some vaccines actually are likely to require of course of dolls to work. So we're talking about nowhere near enough to cover even a minority, the world's population. So how much would be enough? How many those should countries be buying up at this stage? Just think that given the current mix of Seo game to the there is a ninety percent chance that there will be. Actually works. Now. One of I've seen is proven to be effective billions of dollars will, of course, need to be distributed very quickly, but it's impossible to know in advance which candidate will succeed. And setting up manufacturing lines takes time a new vaccine factory can take anywhere to three years to get up and running. So government should actually help pharmaceutical companies to produce vast quantities, a range of different vaccines, and ideally economists think Thaksin's numbering in the tens of billions of dollars long before regulatory provides transit but if everybody makes all of the at the same time, there will be. Some some losers right a lot will come to be wasted that way. Yes. Of course absolutely, and that's actually the hard part for politicians because this idea of deliberately overproducing something does not sit easily with politicians or voters indeed bud you have to think about the economic costs even boosting vaccine funding ten times to about the hundred billion or more, which is what many economists are advocating for. Pales in comparison with the seven trillion dollars which governments across the world have spent or pledge to preserve income and jobs that are being lost as a result of the pandemic. So in other words, if we just think of economic output alone a took make sense for the world to spend as much as two hundred, billion on bringing forward ineffective Covid nineteen vaccine. Just fun week to the way things are headed. It seems inevitable that there will be a shortage of supplies. How will they be distributed? Once a good candidate is found i. mean we we saw when the pandemic began this rush for personal protective equipment was not a pretty scene. Right experience was quite telling by the end of April. There were probably around eighty countries that had banned or restricted exports. Youth defend America especially things like medical masks, thermometers, disinfect thens. And even if we look at pandemics the during the swine flu pandemic and you thousand nine rich countries, basically corner the global supplies of the vaccine and they offer some of it to developing countries only after they had more than asked to cover their own citizens and by then if endemic was over. So, what we really seeing now as many commentators are calling vaccine nationalism rich countries are reserving most of the potential global supply of covid nineteen vaccines. And additions countries where these vaccines can be made have the manufacturing capacities are very likely to put their own people first. So what's being done to try to mitigate that global scramble. There are several mechanisms that have been put together for countries to join forces and agree to a more equitable distribution also may end. Make much faster. So the World Health Organization has grown up guidelines of how that might look quite and according to these guidelines. The first supplies of covid nineteen vaccines should call to healthcare workers and social. Care Workers First. Then, the next batch should go to the fifteen or twenty percent of people in each country who are most vulnerable, most likely to from covid nineteen if they're infected. And then laces that are at the highest risk of outbreaks will we prioritized now whether these guidelines will be followed is a different story. It's unclear how many countries will sign up may have expressed interest, but nothing has been signed so far. So all told, what's your prognosis at this stage? Do you think the world will produce enough quantities of candidate vaccines and that they will be distributed in a way? That's even a little bit fair. Just likely that there won't be not vaccine to go around in the first year. Whether it will be distributed equitably depends on where the winning vaccine is made. If the vaccine is part of the portfolio, which is controlled by the global coalition backed up by the World Health Organization than we will see supply being distributed marsh equitably on the other hand if the vaccine turns out to be made in a country that doesn't want to share, it supplies before covering its own citizens. And it's a big country. We won't expect most of the world be covered equitably for a time. Now the solution perhaps is just to spend. More money on the current candidate vaccines, the Waza rating late stage clinical trials. Set of manufacturing, start making them in large quantities that will ensure that there is more to go around with trevor. Vaccine turns out successful. Thanks very much for joining us. Thank you.

Oh, okay, another clown murderer! No I'm thinking like. In nineteen fifty sideshow clown probably would be in like freak. Show like American Horror Story Freak show. I mean he could be a John Wayne Gay. See Ma'am Times to. Why are you on your laptop? I'm not on my laptop. Are you lying I'm not a D. do you see my laptop open? I don't think you close now yet is closed. I WANNA teach us some stuff to have a history lesson history, okay? And seven years ago, I got really excited about this forefathers. Numbers in there so Jackson Beverly Wilga where collectors of vintage photographs and had in their collection a dagger type. Oh you don't say an old photograph taken using a process that involves a silver plate and Mercury Vapor, and his photo was of a young disfigured man. the photograph was believed to be taken in the nineteenth century. The man in the picture was believed that the man had encountered a whales. He was holding Harpoon like object in the image. TIFFANY's face. That was fun. they couple had the image on display in their home for years in December of two thousand and seven, the couple decided to share the image on flicker and titled it a one eyed man with Harpoon super, super creative, so one win was. When did they have it? In their home? Court were the years they had in their home, but they didn't post it till flicker until two thousand seven. Okay, so they decide like a random picture of some random disfigure. Yeah, some people collect mentioned photographs. My Dad is one of those on. This might make him happy. One Flicker user contacted the Combo commenting that the man probably isn't a whaler as he wasn't holding a Harpoon in the picture, was he holding buy outs. Oh, sorry I thought. You said he was holding her. They said it looked like her. so another user saw this picture and said Hey, this might be the only surviving photo of Venus Gauge, not famous gauge. Where's verb? Not Verb just just benny US I. Don't know that name so shown, either. That's why I said. Where's Fergany isn't firm? So, y'all ready to learn about Fini's gauge.

No list of at the age of twenty five Fini's was working as a railroad, foreman and common dish Vermont and on September, thirteenth eighteen, forty eight made a really good attempt at receiving the Darwin Award. Oh my God. Yes, so excited, so phineas worked for the RUTLAND and Burlington railroad company as a form part of his job involved coordinating, blasting out rock to make way for new. New Rail. Lines does part of the job required knowledge in geology and trigonometry, so I have a note to me, saying Insert statement about how trig is as useful of the maths, I will say I really liked. trig choke is super. Useful triggers the most Hallo basic addition. Wouldn't just like OPRAH EMMY BE MORE USEFUL THAN TRADE? Because I never took trig and I'm getting along just fine. Your overcompensating at all. No compensation here I come to terms. Okay, so geology and trigonometry so not only did. They have to be pretty clever, but he also had a handle his crew, who was described as a gang of men who basically needed all the. Since they enjoy things brawling shooting and drinking, they sound like sounds like my. Sounds like the type of people that didn't take trig. had good people skills. Though so is crew liked them to blast the area involved not only defendants have to create schematics aware to drill holes that were a couple inches wide, and a few feet deep, but also had to be able to place them along natural joints and rifts in the rock to make the job easier because why work harder than you have to the cracks just like push it a little harder so i. Like my mental health. Hey? Push it just one step further fine, are we? I completely lost what I was going to save. Thirty Oh.

Bathsheba Demuth: Environmental Historian
"This episode of is on Conservation I spoke with author and environmental historian Bethsheba. Demuth Demuth is an assistant professor at Brown University who specializes in the intersection between humans. Ecosystems ideas in history the work that I do as an environmental historian is broadly focused on the North American and Russian Arctic and particularly the relationships between people and animals and people in Ecosystems. More broadly over the past two hundred years or so. We talked over. Skype demuth was in fairbanks as the professor was performing research for her new book. Her first book is titled Floating Coast and Environmental History of the Bering Straits. Npr called it. A quote deeply studied deeply felt book that lays out a devastating complex history of change notes. What faces us now and dares us to imagine better in quote as we proceed and get into this interview. I will note that I spoke with Professor Demuth while she was at the university library so it can be a little loud in the background at times. It's a busy place. I can promise you however that this will be one of the most compelling and interesting accounts of the history of whaling that you had ever you look so cold yes. It's a little chilly up here. What's the what's the weather like right? Now it's actually a pretty Balmy day today. It's about twenty degrees. It was about fifty degrees colder here last week. You've you've draw the line pretty much anything around ten. Just can't do it for me of all the things that makes this whole conversation. That much more interesting demuth was actually drawn to the Arctic in her young adult life and even lived in the Yukon for two years. And yes doing all the things that you're imagining right now tracking bears hunting. Caribou FISHING SALMON. And yes even. Husky Mushin Dog sledding and no. I'm not making that up. She's that for real your your first journeys out there. If I understand right was your running dog sled yes so when I was eighteen I decided to take a gap year as we. Now call them although they weren't really called then And went to a little community north of the Arctic Circle in the Yukon territory to be a dog handler which is basically an apprentice to somebody who has a dog team and I knew nothing about sled dogs. When I moved up there I was eighteen so I thought I knew something about things but I really didn't. And that was my first introduction to the Arctic. Okay and how long you said you do that for two years. Yes do you. Do you still remember how to do it? I mean I. It's kind of like riding a bicycle except in this particular case. You're working with dogs so you can remember how to do the physical pieces of it but you also need to have a relationship with animals. You're working with so. I'm sure that if I had a team and I spent a lot of time with them would would all come back because I would be making that relationship with dogs but I'd like a bicycle. You can't just grab one and go right right. Yeah that makes sense You don't have to get to know your bike. I right I probably ended up working appear because my dad read me too much Jack London when I was a kid. So there's definitely a literary connection in there now. I could do a really poor job of basically giving it a synopsis of the Book. Or I'm sure it would be much more articulate coming from you Tell us a little bit more about the Soviet whaling And more specifically what you found so fascinating a about that topic. Yes the book that I published. Just this past fall called floating coast looks at basically the the past two hundred years or so along the Bering Strait both the Russian Arctic and in the US Arctic. It's a it's a two country history but because it's an environmental history in some ways it's a history of no country because it's looking at processes an an animals that don't really matched onto nation state borders and the the the project is kind book ended no Pun intended by could have two episodes of large scale whaling the first one being in the nineteenth century for market whalers capitalist wailers most of them coming from New England in fact some of them from where I now live in Providence. Who were coming up to kill bowhead. Whales for oil for lamp oil mostly and then the book closes with a couple of chapters about Soviet whaling in the twentieth century. Which in many ways is just the socialist analog to the to the capitalist wailing in that it is Quite excessive it kills whales far outside their capacity to to reproduce. And keep keep up with the demand and those kind of frames of the book in some ways. Show the things that I found really interesting about this part of the world as a historian. Who's interested in the ways that people's ideas influence the environments? They live in and vice versa. Which is that. It's a it's a place that has a very similar ecology on both sides of the Bering Strait. If you drop down on the peninsula or the seward Peninsula Chukchi Peninsulas in Russia and the seward Peninsula's in Alaska. He can't really tell one from the other right. And let's you know the place extremely well. Because the the flora and the fauna in geology are really comparable but of course in the twentieth century. It gets split by these two big economic ideologies that imagine each other in opposition. Which is you know. Capitalism and socialism. So it's kind of a natural experiment to see how these two ways of managing environments in some sense that the Soviet Union the United States brought with them interact with Arctic species and in the case of Wales they do it very similarly which is more or less trying to kill everywhere they possibly can ya. It's like it's kind of shocking especially when you talk about like as a concern of how many whales are being impacted or what that's doing to the ecosystem comes up that the answer kind of always came back to will. Don't worry. Technology will save us from. That will deliver a positive outcome. Okay can you elaborate on that? Yes this was one of the really interesting commonalities I found between two groups of whalers who were operating hundred years apart from each other or more and in two extremely different cultural and economic contexts is at the end of nineteenth century moby. Dick STYLE TALL SHIP. Whalers call me. Ishmael an ordinary seaman before the mast on the good ship check. What found out a man on Christmas Day of the year? Eighteen forty four on a thousand days. Voight very aware that when they entered a new population of Wales and a piece of the ocean that they hadn't been hunting in before that they would they called. Wailing it out or fishing it out that they would kill off an enormous number of the animals that were that were available locally and that they were doing this and getting further and further from home. So they're aware and using the word extinction by the end of the nineteenth century but at the same time as they're talking about extinction they're basically saying well if we put in place some technological Improvements if our ships get faster. If we're more able to navigate around the sea ice will be able to still catch these whales and there was this kind of belief that because Wales were really intelligent. And all of the whalers nudists and talk about this in detail that there were more whales. They were just shy or had gotten smart and were hiding in new places. So there's actually a couple of lines in Moby Dick Melville talks about you know the whales are just hiding behind the Arctic Sea ice and then after the Second World War the Soviet Union sort of follows the same pattern in that they have very sophisticated marine biology by that point in many ways the the research that so the marine biologist or doing is ahead of what's happening in the United States particularly when it comes to studying ways that whales are social animals and able to communicate vocally with each other They're they're way ahead of what's happening in English. Speaking Countries but at the same time as an aware that that the populations of wheels are dropping but at the same time. They're convinced that as long as they just kind of keep putting more technology online. They're going to be able to keep killing

She doesn't have any of these newfangled half pennies on hand at the store but the clerk points out depending how much yard as she needs it can work out to an even number and the competition is selling the same fabric for fifteen cents a yard down the street so she saving a lot still. The customer is suspicious and challenges the cleric. How can Mr macy sell this so cheaply? Is it stain stained no. It's in perfect condition.

Let's begin with the euro, Brian because we were down quite a bit of New York trading at one point we actually dipped below a buck thirteen that in afternoon trading, which coincided with a report on German or the German government, reducing its twenty nineteen GDP forecast to one percent earlier in the day ECB president Mario Draghi intensified.

Doug, gambit of a mixed bag in this part of the world, the dole is continuing its slide. Seventy eighty one the six high by one percent, but I wanna tell you about one of the worst performance today.

I am going gonna take another one hundred and sixty million AUSSIE dollar hidden fiscal twenty nineteen on top of an earlier too. Hundred million dollar hit. So those shares easing off today over New Zealand daddy. So looking pretty flat right now dR, all right? Thanks to Bloomberg's Paul Allen here in New York. We had crude oil picking up about one percent. There was a report from the government. The energy information agency actually came out with a rather bearish view on the shale, boom.

It's back to square one. Well, with the exception that both sides now. No there are two options compromise or leave the agency's shutdown. Bloomberg's Marty Shankar says the two sides now have gone back to the bargaining table. The outlines of some sort of a compromise that would continue that would open up the government for three weeks contain some semblance of border security. And the president says he is open that it will compromise reasonable agreement. I would support again, maybe a pro rated deal on a Wally says, but that a wall has to be part of it earlier in the day Chuck Schumer said he needs to know that the president will sign something that they negotiate last month. The Senate unanimously passed the short term Bill to keep the government open. It was leader McConnell's idea. Everyone thought the president would support it. But President Trump buckled to the most extreme voices in his party.

"whalers" Discussed on Izzy and Spain
"You could do all sorts of stuff and tie with the rest of Seattle. I'm thinking like retro hockey comes to Seattle out of the gates the Seattle whalers Mesa perfect sites. I tweeted out, and you would have thought I tweeted out to America all of your mom's or fat. I when you first said it, I was like, okay. You're an idiot that exists. Already Hartford Whalers. Classic can't mess with the classic, etc. But do have to say that the more you're talking about it, the more you are making me consider this a very good idea. Because first of all, yes, Hartford, Whalers gear is amazing things being retro super in. So God right now totally you've got a big like built in either the fan base like the kind of people who say, oh, I'm Rams fan. Even though they're in Saint Louis back in the day because my grandpa was in Los Angeles and was LA Rams. Vanity grandfather me on whenever you can have Wailers fans to are immediately Seattle fans because it or you just have Seattle fans that buy into the fact that there's this built in like history, nostalgia and affinity for the colors in the logo and the name before they've even played a single game. I kinda like it see a now some of the the great guys down in. North Carolina already pointing ally Jovi is is already blown up my Twitter wall. Informing me that Carolina owns the the name still even though they are the Carolina hurricane they still own the name of the pavement, and they still they still wear the the vintage gear goi- while I look I'm not problem. They wear it. A couple of times a year because there's a Connecticut whale in the national women's Hockey League that has a very similar logo same colors. So that's worth noting too. I think that there is a look it would take some money, and it would take some negotiation. But I've long said census I lived in Nashville when the titans came to town and they had a naming contest. And if we were on TV, I would use air quotes for this because I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist, but this one made too much sense the NFL went through and they put out the names for everybody to consider for Nashville Tennessee football team. And all of a sudden instead of being the Nashville, whatever it was the Tennessee titans. That was the one that won the contest, there's nothing Titanic about Tennessee. However, there was only one name in the contest that was already owned by the NFL. Oh, they already owned copyrights and legal to the name titans at what do, you know? Suddenly you have Tennessee titans. So that's why the conspiracy theories to me it looks at this and says, hey, like if you want to name a band, you don't just get to go into name van you have to pay an attorney a ton of money to run that name through every copyright thing. Known to man and woman and try and figure out whether or not it's clear the NHL could avoid all that the ownership group avoids all that they buy and guess what? Harford the whalers aren't coming back to Connecticut. So you might as well get to see the gear you love like this makes so much sense. To me. I agree with almost all of that. I do think we'll have to exactly how much of a cost. There will be have put the poll up at Spain. And fits the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed at sarahspain is where I posted it to see whether people think brilliant idea or you're an idiot..
"whalers" Discussed on Hockey Today
"But for some reason NHL ninety four was the one that really resonated with me, and I fell in love with the game. I'm looking at right now here, my man cave is I'm doing the podcast, and it takes everything not just grab it and just play a few games. And if you go to my Facebook about a handful of years ago, I decided to play an entire season the entire ninety two ninety three season as the Quebec Nordiques. I think ended up going like eighty one and one I think there was one night. It was three in the morning, and I was falling asleep. I ended up losing a game to the Blackhawks. And I think Joe sack had one hundred twenty goals. I kept the stats at some were on my Facebook. If you wanted to go find that I it it out. I might have done this like in twenty ten something like that one. I really should do it again, just so much fun. I probably would have to do it as the Hartford Whalers because I want to do it as as a team that exists because people think that I'm being biased, but you do have. The funk teams like the Nordiques like the whalers, but such a fun game. So I asked you yesterday, and I sent it out on Twitter as well. If you wanted to send me any of your memories of NHL ninety four and let's hear from you at download a hashtag game is conduct. Tom says I didn't have a video game system when NHL ninety four came out. But I had a great time playing Gretzky three D hockey ninety eight and NHL hits two thousand and two now enjoy current NHL series, especially general managers. That's what so interesting. I'm so into NHL ninety four I've got a lot of the more updated games, not the same. It's just not the same. It just something about NHL ninety four. That was perfect forever t h says with two seasons now with injuries in length. Do you think that would have a factor in the leaves when they re Matthews and I understand he has a couple of injuries. But no, no, I think he's a transcendent player. And I think these injuries happen. I still think they're gonna lock them up long term. He says also NHL ninety four goal horn was one of the best of all. All time and the wrap around the net glitch was fun as a kid. Yeah. You find these little glitches where you're able to get goals. And sometimes you would just throw the puck at the net from the other end of the ice. In would just go past the goaltender sometimes they would have wacky things happen like that. Greg says that's how I learned the rules of hockey as a thirteen year old kid penalties, offsides, etc. I also learn how to skate to the circle spin for no reason come across the ice and score every damn time. That's the move, Greg. And you know, it's interesting when you talk about learning the rules, but the best way to play Joel ninety four was with the offsides off and no penalties because there was just so arbitrary with the penalties. Right. That anytime a player got injured if he was moving that meant that you got you were you were going to be out for a bit. If you weren't moving you were going to be out for the rest of the game. And certainly if you injured a player you were going to get a penalty, but it would just so arbitrary you'd get frustrated and take the penalties off in the offside was a pain because the computer would always go off side. So yeah, you were supposed to. To learn that way. But I I end up playing with the offsides often the penalties off. So I'm not sure how much of an education I was getting on the rules of the game. But I certainly was getting education all the different players. There were in the NHL. Chris says, hi, Don, this might be controversial. But I was bigger fan of the NHL games that came after ninety four they included full season schedules and GM options to make trades.
