"And I'm one of the better skiers that most people is. And you and you never ski. That's the thing. Adam and I were talking about this. At max and I were talking about this literally yesterday because I was like, dude, it's so obnoxious to me that he's that good at skiing. And he's basically just a child who never actually. He never actually skis. He's just a kid and just remembers how to do the same motions that he did from fucking 20 years ago. Insane. That is so crazy. I don't ski for 6 weeks. I'm fucking garbage. But I skip every day, I can figure it out. But I don't ski for 6 weeks. I'm back to being trash again. I couldn't do it like I couldn't ski hard and well for an entire day. But like, you know, out of two hours before my before my cartilage starts yelling at me. It feels like I'm 17 again. Okay, all right, I'm gonna restart the time. Restart it. Yeah, I had to get that. I don't even know where we left off there. Okay, so 2015. Jeff and rooster need full time youth in there. I'm telling them that they know that. I can only do so much part time. And at that point, I started taking on some of the landlord situation. So seeked out of that, started a side project with a podcast in 2015 that I don't even want to talk about, but 31% of the listers know exactly what I'm talking about. And at that time, my brother and father had started investing in these apartment buildings. Okay. My father needed to be very retired. But he's the only one in America. My other because my brother's in France. Still is, what's that? Still is. Yeah, he's in France right now. He bounced back and forth between the U.S. and France, but it's gotten weird with COVID. It's hard to get back and forth. His family is in Europe. Long story.

Very nice weather and it continues for the remainder of the afternoon with lots of sunshine and temperatures at least 80 degrees or warmer inside and around the beltway. A little bit cooler off toward the north and west where upper 70s for Cumberland and Winchester will be the general theme. But as we head through the evening hours, looking good and feeling great, temperatures will fall through the 70s, the 60s, eventually the 50s by early tomorrow morning. Could also be looking at patchy fog come early tomorrow, very similar to we had earlier today. Thursday brings partly cloudy skies, mid 70s to around 80. More clouds on Friday, temperatures in the middle to upper 70s as a cold front advances from the west. This front cold will not only bring added clouds, but a chance for showers late Friday into the day on Saturday.

A new coke zero sugar today to discover for yourself isn't the best cover. Try it. I now back to the story. Following her husband's untimely death sarah's life becomes somewhat of a mystery. But there's one rumored event that kind of changes my opinion on the widow and her mysterious mansion allegedly after william died. Syra paid a visit to a famed boston. Medium by the name of adam coons. Sarah asked adam to summon her husband's spirit if anything. She hoped that connecting with him would give her some sort of closure adam called on the spirit world and allegedly. He was successful. He got in. Contact with william and even transmitted messages between them. Sarah told william she loved him and missed him. William responded back. i'll be with you. Always it would be this really sweet reunion. But it didn't end there. William also had a very important message for sarah a warning. He told his wife that she was in danger. That she would be forever haunted by the ghosts of every soul killed by the winchester rifle unless she built them a home. A big home now. I don't know exactly how many people had been killed by the winchester rifle at this point. But i do know that by eighteen. Eighty two hundred thousand rifles had been purchased and after william's death that number continued to escalate which for sarah meant construction on the house could never slow down. There's also a theory that sarah's strange designs were intended to confuse the spirits. Like if she built this house as a kind of maize the ghost would get trapped in its staircases and passageways and they wouldn't be able to find her. If this were true it would explain so much. The labyrinthine architecture the reclusiveness the secrecy. But according to mary jo agnosio an expert on sarah's life. There's no evidence to show that. Sarah felt guilty about the gun. Related deaths ignacio suggests that the public projected their own feelings onto sarah that she was used as a scapegoat for their own grief over gun violence. In the nineteenth century. Most gun related deaths happen during wars but by the nineteen thirties. Guns were more readily available than ever in large part. Thanks to the winchesters repeating rifle which meant that. Civilian deaths grew increasingly. Common coming to terms with this spike in violence was not easy. Especially if you were rifle owner yourself. It was much easier to place blame on sarah. To say that the house was some sort of penance. She was paying. Because if sarah took the fall it meant the public didn't have to all considered. It's more likely that sarah's obsessive construction was just a way of coping with her grief from her own personal tragedies. It kept her busy gave her something to do. A sense of purpose in control in a world that was riddled with unexpected loss. After all sarah had been inspired by her father's work as a carpenter as a woman. She wasn't allowed to go to school for architecture but her inheritance gave her. The means to use this houses kind of a laboratory and her auditees can be explained pretty easily to sarah with rheumatoid arthritis a disease that can cause your hands to become misshapen. So that explains the constant gloves. She also lost her teeth late in life. Which explains the face covering veil so. This wasn't some sinister character she was trying to play. Sarah was just self conscious as for the rest of the house. Some of its architectural. Quirks aren't as spooky as the tour guides. Want you to think. The bizarre windows on the floors are actually designed tool to bring light into the lower stories. Some of the stairs to nowhere and doors that open to nothing are likely left over from the earthquake damage. But that doesn't explain all of the homes symbolism earlier. I mentioned how. Sarah might have been involved with the freemasons many believe that the window inscriptions quotes from shakespeare's troy and cressida. Were actually an ode to the famed. Alleged freemason francis bacon. It's a bit of a stretch but many masons felt that bacon was actually the writer behind shakespeare's works and because of that members of the organization kind of worshiped bacon others claim. There are masonic symbols in the homes. Iron gates some say the switchback staircase and other labyrinthine designs or an to mc. Esher another feigned alleged freemason. You've probably seen his sketches before. Like the one where. A bunch of staircases go in multiple directions defying. The laws of physics will comparing his work with sarah's house. It's pretty easy to see the resemblance. Now this still doesn't explain some of the weird experiences people have had at the house over the years. It doesn't explain the incident in the hall of fires. The reported apparitions or harry. Houdini is night of terror. If there's one thing. I know for sure it's that. The winchester house has a lot of stories especially about sarah. Part of the thrill is.

"Away peacefully in her favourite bedroom following the funeral. Her staff is given small portions of her wealth and dismissed from service. At this point. You might think that the servants would finally start talking about what was going on inside that house but still nobody will say thing. Meanwhile sarah's undeveloped land cells pretty easily but the house does not at the time of sarah's death at the place has a maze of one hundred sixty rooms. Ten thousand windows in two thousand doors is just way too complicated in huge for any ordinary family to live there after four months up for auction. Only one person makes an offer. His name is john brown. And he's an amusement park owner. John looks at sarah's old house. And thanks well. I'm not going to live in it but i could buy it and turn it into a tourist attraction so brown purchases the house and eventually renamed it the winchester mystery house and for the first time ever. He invites the public inside and boy. Do people get their money's worth. This place is basically a fun. Housemaids mirrors a staircase with seven turns even though it only goes up one story. There's doors too small to walk through and there's this small nondescript interior room that everyone can't stop talking about it has three doors but only one really works as an exit another door drops you eight feet into the kitchen below and the third leads down a narrow passageway to a closet. Allegedly this room was used for seances as more journalists. Visit the house. Newspapers hint that the winchester mansion may even be haunted. It's enough to attract the attention more visitors more journalists and special guests like the famed magician. Harry houdini in october nineteen twenty four. Houdini is visiting san jose for a performance when he needs. One of the winchester house tour guides. The guide insists that houdini come by for a private tour. Lieven arrange a seance. Now who team doesn't exactly believe in ghosts but he figures he might as well see what all the hoopla's about if anything maybe he can. Debunk this haunted house theory once and for all so reportedly houdini heads to the home just before midnight. For a seance in that strange little private room and not only does houdini fail. To debunk anything. Supposedly he walks away completely freaked out the details of houdini. Experience are scant. But i do know that he saw sarah winchester's old collection robes and somehow learned that she uses a different robe for each spirit which is kind of cagey but many people believe this meant. He saw the ghost of sarah winchester self over the next few decades more creepy stories about the house surface one day. A guide is leading a tour when she hears a cy outside. Sarah's favourite bedroom at first. She thinks no big deal. It's just a guess that fell behind so she goes out into the hallway to look. That's when she sees a small dark form glide around the corner and disappear another time. There's an incident in his room. Sarah called the hall of fires. The room itself is kind of bizarre. It's just as open empty. Space with four large fireplaces. Some say that theory uses this room is a sauna for her aching joints. But who really knows for sure supposedly one evening. A grounds keeper is up on a ladder working on one of the fireplaces. He feels this light tap on his shoulder. he turns around as to me. It's one of his colleagues except there's no one there so the man goes back to work until he feels something push him hard almost like. It's trying to knock him off the ladder. He's so spooked that he drops what he's doing. Climbs off the ladder and runs to a different part of the house. He leaves the job totally unfinished. I mean who could blame him. Then there's the frequent sightings of a ghostly man pushing a wheelbarrow. He's often seen working on a fireplace in the ballroom or the coal shoot in the basement and is believed. Be one of sarah's former handyman. There's a bushy-haired woman in an upstairs window and some even say they've seen the ghost of sarah herself roaming the front lawn. Now it's possible. This is the work of a few overactive imaginations after all if someone tells you that a house is haunted. You're bound at that. Every little bump or breeze is a sign of something spectral. But if we did back into sarah's life we might find something different because as it turns out. Sarah was not only aware of the ghosts in the house. She may have built it for.

Got stacks and stacks of these traces. Showing of hearkens come through and rainstorm snowstorms and stuff. So every morning. Every sunday morning i wind all night. Clocks paragraph is ritual which i do it about seventy. Am on a sunday for the paper and have my coffee and all the rest of it and all of sunday monday the clocks all in harmony with one another they will strike on the right by tuesday starting to fall out of rate by thursday. It's complete but but i'm reminded of that wonderful book by dorothy. L says and dorothy l says read this book called god unite and she talks about walking back from a meeting through oxford on a summer's night and it's midnight i listened to college clocks chiming midnight in friendly disagreement and i love the concept of fretted disagreement. You mentioned how in japan the psycho factory prizes the making of these non quartz watches these beautiful mechanical watches. I wonder if there's something about the ultra precise modern world. That increasingly leads people to seek refuge in that kind of steady like more and more living rooms designed to scandinavian and japanese ideas which are based on symmetry and bio morphing lines and natural and timber. And like all those things like that. What do you think of that. Well once again having a japanese wife. I mean the whole concept of web subway very important. What is bobby saudi. It's the the joy of if you like the imprecise of the natural line of tree. I'm there are no straight lines. Nature horizon isn't straight or they may think it is and from that you get joy and things that are built to human scale. Initially all measurement was done to human scale the earliest measurement is acute which is the length of a pharaohs arm from his outstretched finger to his elbow then the inches. The thumb and the foot is obviously more footage and the yard or the paces pursues the thousand paces where got the word mile from and then he was regarded as nonsensical bogus. People are different sizes and shapes and so measurements started to be done. According to some degree of physical objects and so the french and the british largely devised a system of measurements with standards against things were measured. That was the standard kilogram. There was the standard meter and they're all housed aware all housed in the basement of a mansion outside palestine. tin sever where the poor has made and the grandees the measuring world metrology not not meteorology. Metrology meet every so often. There's there's a conference about sued enthusiastic. You wouldn't believe. I've never been invited to that confidence. It's a secret meeting to tell in secret symbols and decide. What a kilogram. Or do they okay. And they've all been abolished because now everything is measured electrically according to states of decay of crypt on atoms or radon atoms and one by one these physical objects which are things of great beauty. Say in australia. Must be all the countries that signatories to the agreement have copies of the standard kilogram the standard meter. Basically one by one. They were abandoned until the last one standard kilogram which is about the size of zippo cigarette lighter and it's kept under three glass closures sealed into a volt seldom six keys all held by different people. Different families no one can touch it but every so often every twenty years things are measured against and the set terrible thing is that the one in paris is losing weight.

You have thirty. Two had taken off from los angeles on route to london. Heavy load shortish runway. The thing had been under immense tress. Didn't break the next leg from london.

You bye here. We mean of course a little bit far. The last time i think you were on this podcast it was in person but perhaps it is fitting that you are on your own piece of land for this conversation. How'd you come to want to write a book about land and land ownership by used to live in hong kong and came back in ninety seven had passed back into the hands of chinese coast. Should have done then decided largely on the advice of old enough. See then new york times correspondent in hong kong. That i should perhaps move to new england and so rather than go to london. I came to the new world. I'd be correspondent here in the seventies the eighties for the guardian and bought a little cottage town code west. Saic about one hundred ten miles. North of new york in duchess county has had few acres of garden and stuff around it but there was a a plumber from the bronx code. Caesar luria who owned a fairly tracts surrounding the house needs to come there and hunt and he was very nice man and he would off to hunting each season he would leave me a cooler with venison doorways a bottle of cognac which was particularly nice then after three or four years. He said to me that he was tired of paying the taxes on this land would i like to buy it and he named price and mice but guess why not okay so i bought the land and it was pretty useless. I have to say smith scale the north face of mountainside so. It wasn't good for raising animals. Now this fake fantasy. But one day i might but it was sort of beautiful in were couple of little streams lots of trees some of them quite magnificent they oak and hickory and of course north florida pine cherry and ash of animals. We bob cat. Once there were dare of course apply. Gm rabbits and i liked it but it was not particularly useful and eventually with this sort of fantasy. I had maybe one day. Having animals i came up here to the batches. I so that sam the house done death but kept the land and then there was this sort of major shift in my attitude towards it. When in twenty eleven i became a citizen of this country. Suddenly i realized the by owning these one hundred and thirty acres down in duchess county. I was actually invested in the country. To which is not become a citizen so then became rather interested more interested in the land itself and in history so i started digging around realized overstated. I aborted from this mr aaron. He had deep fried to that body from someone else and so the chain went back until it stopped in about the late seventeenth century. There was paperwork all the way back to then. Then i know strode duchess county in poughkeepsie. They've got all the papers but then he came to a shuddering halt because it was at that time that the documents were mainly written in dutch. Where henry hudson's explores who had come up the river. That is his name but he was working there. Being for instance she was working as an agent for the dutch. And he had first acquired land from the original settlers by non who were the mckeekan indians. But they didn't have the concept of ownership say hunted and they gathered and they settled and all the rest of it superintendent but didn't own and then i began to think well the difference between their attitude land. They're feeling was that you can never own land than you could. Own the breeze with the ocean. To maya too is. This is mind. Shoo everybody away. You start at the right to do so. That was an interesting development. And i thought maybe there would be a book and so i put it to my editor and she said yes. That would be an admirable idea.

"This term is used as an umbrella term that encompasses other mythological creatures like leprechauns elves trolls banshee changelings etc. Because of this their accounts descriptions of what fairies can look like an appearance in our world can change throughout time and their looks are a lot more diverse than humans. So it's also a common thought that most varies don't fly but even those do don't have wings in certain folklore. Some people dare not say the name ferry and instead you'll see them referred as many other things like the other crowd the good folk the good people etc fair folk probably. They really don't want to say the word fairy often. They do this as a sign of respect and possibly invoked their good nature rather than their mischievous one. Some more states that varies are actually nature spirits and that they are invisible life force that aids and the growth of vegetation and earth's biosphere itself although not inherently evil various are said to be mischievous and tricksters and pull pranks on people that were mostly harmless however with any group of living things there are some that were malevolent and violent and those were the ones people are afraid of. Of course sometimes those who dealt with them would end up hurt dead end up going crazy or catatonic. Their origin varies. They can be found all over european folklore from scandinavian to french irish british etc. Their origin can even differ from pre and post christian ideology pre christian folklore says that they are a supernatural race at lived in the hills tombs beneath the sea or on faraway islands. There were said to be old. Gods called the two a day dannon okra. They were invaded by the my lesions who were the ancestors of the celtic population of ireland. Where the two day. Dannon were driven underground. After losing a battle with these supernatural beings living underground the lived in parallel with the above ground world called the other world or the fairy room and became hit into the beings above ground so as each generation passed their stature and power diminished and they were known in folklore as tiny creatures that were forced underground to evade the hordes of invading humans. Hollow hill is where the two a day dannon were forced to flee. This believe that this is where. The ferry room was located post-christian ideology combined with celtic mythology. So as to get people to convert from their ancient pagan beliefs to christianity So let's just mix in a little bit of what you already believe so you can make will. Yep it.

They were taking him to winchester england to give count of all of his actions and kind of like hold him accountable in front of people but becket refused so the four nights retrieved their weapons and rushed back inside the cathedral. Oh my god. I beckett proceeded to the main hall for evening prayers and the other monks tried to like themselves into different parts of the joe for get said to them. It is not right to make a fortress out of the house of prayer in order them to reopen the doors so the four nights wielding they're drawn swords ran into the room saying like thomas becket. He's a traitor. To the king the knights found beckett in his spot near the door of the monastic cloister the stairs into the crypt and the stairs leading up to the choir of the cathedral where the monks were all. They're like still saying their prayers. Like oh no right. There's just four guys having running in with okay upon seeing them becca. I am no traitor.

After his death the faithful throughout europe european venerating beckett as a murder in february eleven seventy three which was just a little more than two years after his death. He was canonized by pope. Alexander the third and so sure typically like canonization of saints takes lake decades.

Okay never made that connection no me neither ever okay So the schreiner was built between eleven eighty and twelve twenty and up to one hundred thousand.

The eighth who definitely be talking about in a little bit more twenty. Twenty researchers digitally reconstructed the raised sanctuary and available to view on the beckett story online and we'll share linked to that because it's really interesting how they did that. They took This thing had been such a big deal for more than three hundred years. And then it was raised more than four hundred and fifty plus years ago at this point and so they took accounts that the pilgrims had made that other monks had made in in digitally recreated which is pretty up and also modern works based on the story of thomas becket include. Tes elliott's nineteen thirty. Five play murder in the cathedral later adapted the opera assassination cutter. Dry ill the brando pizza'd in nine hundred fifty eight. You did that.

The Mystery of Woodchester Mansion
"People have lived in the area of Gloucestershire share. Now known as would chester park since the Romans invaded Britannia but the site of the Winchester Mansion itself began as a hunting lodge in the middle of a heavily wooded deer park. The ducie family purchased the Land Law in Sixteen thirty one renovating it into a Georgian. House called Spring Park. The ducey's kept the house in a near constant state of renovation added several landscaping features to the sprawling four thousand Acre valley including a group of art official lakes in eighteen forty. The second earl of Ducie inherited the property from his recently deceased father. The Legend of what happened that fateful year would be the first indication that something wasn't quite right at the would chester estate. It's no wonder that rumors of full body apparitions, disembodied voices, and the strange smell of extinguish candles persist. Not when the initial occupancy of the mansion turned out to be so very, very strange. Henry was grateful that his father and past he would never say so loud but he could not be happier. He had long toiled in the shadows of Thomas Reynolds Morton look first earl of Ducie. While the reward of inherited title was a nice reward for his time. It wasn't enough Thomas expected a lot out of him henry heated the permanence near the Thomas War around his son the constant lack of approval had driven Henry to dark thoughts. It was unfair that someone who had so much could feel as though they were nothing. He'd contemplated killing his own father regularly. It wished for his father's death a thousand times. But wishes weren't enough. At night he trump of sneaking into his father's room and crushing his windpipe Thomas, Cole ties would stare back at him in defiance but Henry would only press harder. He would steal every ounce of paint from his father that he could. He would revel in at even. This was the retribution he deserved. But by the time, he finally summoned the courage to act on his feelings fate had intervened. His father was dead and Henry would be able to keep his soul free at sin. He should have been overjoyed, but there was a part of him. That was disappointed. Henry had wanted to watch the life leave is father's is. Instead, S. he stood in the church on that summer morning he saw the corpse of an older man that felt nothing like his father. This husk of a person wasn't even the slightest bit intimidating. He was justice Shell Serene still. No fire behind the size no disapproving sneer. To the best of his knowledge Thomas Reynolds, Morton had never looked serene is life. Death was as the saying goes the great equalizer Henry didn't WanNA. Feel equal to his father he wanted to feel better that him. His shock at being robbed of the chance to end his father's life was eventually swallowed by his own greed. He held the title and the purse strings that once belonged to Thomas. The legacy had been passed onto him and he could do whatever he wanted with that power. His first act of filial disobedience was going to be a party. He would holden enchanted forest themed masquerade at his father's last real estate acquisition but converted Hunting Lodge in Winchester Park. It was still under construction, but the ballroom was mostly finished and the incomplete designed would really add to the atmosphere. Henry woke with a sense of clear purpose on the day of the party even though he held the title for weeks, this would be his entrance into high society as an earl. The people would give him the respect they never gave his father. A. Played softly as Henry mingled with his guests, he welcomed as many people as he could bobbing out of conversations whenever he grew tired of the subject matter. Most of these guests were more his father's friends than his. He despised them, but he couldn't resist the chance to hold his new title and the imminent chaos heads. He outranked nearly all of them now. Though the event was a masquerade few visit guests had been particularly inventive. There was fun and trying to guess who everyone was. Something always gave them away the gate, the bone structure, the laugh. There were at least four uninspiring looking deer and far too many rakish second sons had decided to come as wolves. But there was one person Henry didn't know. A strange masked man was weaving his way through the crowd. He had never introduced himself and his body language was unfamiliar. Henry tried to get closer, but he struggled to even get a clear view of the masked man. The pushed through the of gentry ignoring their complaints. Finally. When the crowd parted they met.

Are Wolves Smarter Than Dogs?
"I've known some dogs that are pretty smart I've also known some that worked. Bless him. But could wolves be smarter. Brain stuff. It's Christian Sager, my dogs, winchester and se blue they are real smart. So I was intrigued when I read a new study that said wolves are more intelligent in some ways than my dogs and all their canine friends whether you have a chocolate lab or a coon hound scientists believe that some modern dogs and wolves descended from a common ancestor between eleven thousand and thirty thousand years ago the new study which was published in the September twenty seventeen. Journal of scientific reports is by an international team of researchers at the wolf? Science Center. In Vienna Austria, they found domesticated dogs cannot make the connection between cause and effect wolves however, can they came to that conclusion by testing and comparing how the two species searched for food after giving them hints about where it was located researchers used fourteen dogs and twelve socialised wolves in their experiments. During the tests, the animals had to choose between two containers one with food. And one without the first thing researchers did was determined whether the animals could make sense of communicative clues by pointing and looking at the container with the food researchers. Next wanted to see how the dogs and wolves responded to behavioral cues the experimental pointed to the container with food, but did not make eye contact with the animals. Finely in the last experiment, the animals had to infer themselves which container had the hidden food using only causal clues like noises made. When the experimenters shook the container with the food both the wolves and the dogs did well on the communicative clue tests all found the hidden food both species however failed the behavioral cue portion without direct. I contact neither dog nor wolf could find the food during the last part of the test. However, only the wolves could make casual inferences as to where the food was located in other words the scientists said the wolves, not the pooches understood cause and effect. Study Author Michelle Lamp from the Netherlands reminded. US. However that the differences can be explained by the fact that wolves are more persistent to explore objects than. As, because dogs are conditioned to receive food from US whereas wolves have to find food themselves in nature. What shocked researchers was that the wolves were able to interpret direct eye to eye contact that understanding of communicative cues researchers said may have facilitated domestication. The study is unique also in that it used dogs that lived in both packs and with families, but the results of the dogs were independent of living conditions.

So perhaps you could set the record straight firstly in what context did you say the words Jewish people are among? The cleverest in the world. It came up in conversation. About Physics I've always an interest since I was a boy in astrophysics. because. I couldn't believe that one hundred years ago almost. Albert Einstein we're talking about such abstract subjects as light being affected by gravity. And he works out the speed of light, which was a phenomenal thing to do in the nineteen twenties. How did this man come to realizations about what actually control the will then what does control the world? And the whole universe that we live in? So. My interest was based on this philosophy. On physics. And when the lady Mico sleater told me that she was a qualified physicist and she was American. It was almost involuntary question for me to Oscar. She was Jewish and again, this was a private lunch at a private lynch over Cup of coffee. Now, it was also reported to say that you said that black men on the privileged needle help that they can get. Yes. I did say that.
