Officials Urge Killing of Invasive Spotted Lanternfly
"If you live on the east coast of the us especially in new york or pennsylvania and see a visually striking spotted lantern fly. The state governments would like you to forget any humane ideas about carefully moving it from one spot to another and instead to immediately kill it the spotted lantern fly is an invasive pest that is not native to the us and apparently is threatening to over seventy of the plant species that feeds on feeds on meaning draining sap and leaving them weakened and vulnerable to disease among those species. Is the atlantis autism or tree of heaven which the new york times points out is best known as the tree from betty. Smith's nineteen forty-three novel. A tree grows in brooklyn but this pernicious beast who has delicate grey wings spotted in black with a bonus set of bright red wings also spotted with black underneath. I arrived in the us from asia seven years ago and entered new york city last year. During the pandemic environmentalists ecologists are encouraging people to kill the bugs site because they have no natural predators here and no organic pesticides that can take them out here. New york the department of agriculture is additionally asking people to submit the location where you found the lantern fly on their website in pennsylvania. If you're caught moving the insect from one location to another you could be fined. Abort from the destruction these little lantern flies could cause on native species. Governments are being so intense because they know that the lantern flies are quite striking. They're not the kind of bug most people would want to kill. Unlike some other invasive species like the asian longhorn beetle that caused a massive deforestation throughout new york in the late nineties. According to the new york times

Here you know as water managers were tasked with trying to Reduce flooding and reduce pollution. And that's what you're tasked with what you're giving is how much rainfall from the sky. And also you're given a landscape that developed over a century ago so a lot of these homes were developed during the dust bowl when it was the dryness of times. And now we're coming out of the wettest of times so now there's this conflict with you know homes infrastructure of Whether it's surface water groundwater flooding happening and people you know being like.

That has all the facts. Well mary gray bar. Who is my guest. Has written a book called debunking the sixteen nineteen project exposing the plan to divide america. Mary great bar. Welcome thank you. Well listen you. You wrote a book called debunking howard zinn exposing the fake history that turned generation against america. It's devastating stuff. I mean let's start there. Who are these people that obviously you know for lack of a better verb hate america. Why are they putting forward narratives. That are not only pernicious but are actually false. There's no question that howard johnson's version of america and the six thousand nineteen projects version america. This is complete nonsense being pedal as though it were true. Why do these people want to destroy the greatest nation in the history of the world. Well i think they have some personal resentment of howard. Zinn nicole hannah jones. Who is the creator of sixteen. Nineteen project have slightly different. Motivations both are promoting a kind of neo marxist version of history howard zinn of course was a one time member of the communist party and his allegiance was to communism and he hated this country and he hoped to foment a communist revolution. Nicole hannah jones from her interviews. And what. I've read about her and things that she has said has this resentment towards this country She believes perhaps going back to her family. that was mistreated because of their race. The black side of famish used biracial believes that this country has not treated her fairly and she believes in off. The fidel castro's cuba. She praises that regime. She she took a trip there and her politics are aligned with the squad of the democratic party. The far left. She wants to see a redistribution of wealth. She wants socialized healthcare. And so this is a history that kind of fits in. She may not be as aware of the real history is howard zinn but she refuses to take any kind of criticism. How would kind of enlightened her as to what really did

Because that's how they do it in california california asked for recalls all the time you can mount a recall campaign against any statewide elected official for any reason at all if you can achieve the grand results of collecting signatures from just twelve percent of people. Who voted in the last election for that seat. Not twelve percent of registered voters but twelve percent of the number of people who voted in the last election for that seat specifically. That's all you need to be able to get that. Statewide elected official. Put up for recall as low bars. Go this is kind of so low. It just sits there on the floor and invites you to walk on it.

Wet Notes - 9-13-21
"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio from monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one first up today is in another idea for diving with a purpose in one of the most recent newsletters from the coral restoration foundation the coral chronicles. There was a report that cr f. is teaming up with the atlantis. Dive resort in douma getty to offer a unique opportunity to participate in a week long program at the result in helping them build and maintain the largest coral nursery endowing. Actually the town where. Atlantis is located. The program is being sponsored by the coral restoration foundation. The loveland living planet aquarium and the meat foundation. The program runs from september twenty fourth to october. First two thousand twenty two there are planned educational sessions on coral ecology along with restoration efforts and techniques. You also conduct restoration. Dives along with some fun dies. This sounds really fascinating. One of the pictures into newsletter showed the table coral at apo island. I vividly remember that area when we dove air in two thousand nineteen there wasn't any pricing available in the article and you'll have to contact the hotel directly if you have the time and desire to dive with a purpose check out this program and market on your calendar. Long time ago. Donna and i lived in hawaii that was in the mid nineteen eighties. At that time we got to experience. What was probably one of the first while in walls in honolulu. If you're not familiar with wilem walls you can check them out. The wall was a large mural of the humpback whale on the side of a building near waikiki. It was quite impressive. Well it might not be a while and wall but if you happen to be near brant rock in mansfield massachusetts you can catch a the view of a mural of a large shark painted on the side of an old restaurant according to wicked local dot com. The mural was painted by a local artist. Shane leonard. Shane was a former football player at boston college. Who has a passion for painting and a passion for sharks. Now the muros on the side of the former arthur and patch restaurant that closed back in two thousand fifteen. The shark faces divers as they head down ocean street which is a one way street. So you can't miss it say. Shane says he likes the way shark. Show emotion. the photo is pretty impressive. there's no guarantee that the building won't be torn down. Now that is unoccupied but according to shane. Even if it doesn't survive it was worth doing so if you happen to be near mansfield mass check out the shark mural on ocean street about a month ago. Patio wear foundation announced their fourth annual aware week. Now this year it will run from september. Eighteenth through september twenty six two thousand and twenty one the whole idea behind aware week is to empower the global dive community to lead or take part in conservation activities in courses focused on local action for global impact in the past aware has focused on two elements marine debris and vulnerable marine species this year in concert with patties blueprint for ocean action. They're adding three more components. Climate change marine protected areas and coral reefs. Some of the ways. That dive shops can participate or by conducting aware classes like dive against debris coral conservation or the aware specialty. Also like us. You can become a one hundred percent aware dive centre where you provide a monthly contribution in support of the patty certifications you award. We are very proud to be one hundred percent aware. But here's something that. Patty aware foundation needs to work on. We need more notice as to win. Aware week is happening. I wasn't sure what was happening this year and our calendar filled up and we weren't able to get things scheduled as i mentioned at the top of the show. We've already created are twenty twenty two calendar and it would be nice to know when aware week twenty twenty two is happening. I also mentioned at the top to show that the re photo contest results were in and that i didn't win while scuba diving magazine. Magazine's two thousand and twenty one through the lens contest is also complete. The winners were recently released at scuba diving. Dot com and the photos will be revealed in september october special photo issue. They received one thousand seven hundred and nineteen photos from around the world. The contest categories included behavior compact camera macro and wide angle. The entries were judged on beauty originality and unique encounters. I check them out and they are spectacular. I only wish. I had the talent impatience to do that kind of work. Now if you wanna get a jump onto twenty twenty two contests they will start accepting entries january third two thousand twenty two and you can submit your photos through may thirty first two thousand and twenty two and finally we recently received our two thousand twenty two aqualung buyer's guide along with information on all the new products coming down from aqualung apex. So i thought. I'd give you a little preview on what's on the horizon. I from aqualung. They are releasing a new regulator the helix pro and the helix it looks like the helix pro is a mid range regular and i think it's replacing their core. It is a balanced first and second stage in his environmentally sealed with four low pressure ports and two high pressure ports. It was built for cold water and has the automatic closure device or a cd. lower end. helix is not environmentally sealed. And it doesn't have a cd and it's designed for warmer water. Also coming out in two thousand and twenty two is their new. Aqua fluck aqua flex men and aqua flex woman wetsuits. I think it's a redesign of their tried and true. Aqua flex line they also have a two millimeter. Free flex wetsuit now. The i one hundred computers going to come in a new color yellow and speaking of colors. They've added a number of different colors to various products including something called sand petrol red and orange as for eight packs. They also have a new regulator the xl four osha and it is billed as a totally sustainable regulator bay from post consumer waste it comes in grey or mint with some great etching. On the first stage. I suspect it's just like the xl four plus being an overbalanced diaphragm regulator with two hp and four l. p. ports. It looks pretty. Sharp and apex is releasing a new dive computer to the sx. It will be program can program up to six gases and monitor six transmitters. The has a titanium basil making it lightweight endurable but also has a color display. There's something more that require. Some more research It says it has in oh to analyze or onboard. But no to sell gotta check that out a little bit. There's a lot more out there and over time. I'll give you more updates from both aqualung and apex. Well that wraps up wet notes. Here on scuba shock. Radio for monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one
What Makes a Rookie of the Year?
"I did some research looking into what really makes a rookie of the year and really three things really came stood out to me. One is opportunity right. You have to actually have minutes significant minutes in a significant role on your team. And if you look over the last couple of years for the rookie of the year race you're going to see that at twenty seven minutes a game seems to be the the threshold that we're looking at for players right now. Two thousand nineteen. It was twenty seven. Point eight doesn't eighteen was thirty minutes a game. And so the first thing that we're we're scouring is is this player going to get significant like starter minutes and a great role on their teams very difficult to crack rookie of the year. No matter how talented you are without those minutes the second key metric is really points per game so in two thousand eighteen. The top three scored. I think sixteen point three points per game two dozen nineteen top three vote-getters for rookie of the year had fifteen point. Three points a game. Twenty twenty was only thirteen points. A game But that was in part because thirty points a game was the third highest gray mark for any rookie about season. And so if you look at the past eight years the winner is was in the top three and usually the top two and scorn for rookies of the year. So not only. Is it going to be minutes but the opportunity to actually score the basketball and does the player have the ability to be a big time scored sort of the next thing that we're gonna look at at it also found that If you go back and sort of look at some of the work that kevin pelton is done at espn Fr- almost every season. The combined averages of points rebounds assists per game when you add those averages together. That's the player that's going to win the ward and then finally You know look when you're looking at rookie of the year. You're not actually talking about the player. That's gonna be the best player in five years if you go back and look at past winters. That's often just not the case. It's it's the player that's can have the most opportunity. I'm to really hit those metrics of scoring Minutes per game and then the sort of combined stats together. That's going to win work the year. And so that's going to change to me. The draft order a little bit about who we're going to handicap again for rookie of the
Oscar Valdez Allowed To Fight Despite Testing Positive For Banned Substance
"Got some serious business to discuss with the wbz basically allowing oscar valdez to go forward with this fight after a blatant violation.

Oscar valdez convicted of having some kind of stimulant of banned stimulant in his system.

The newspapers local newspapers long seen billy as their main enemy they begin talking about how how billy is certainly certainly guilty. They accuse him of having committed every crime in grays harbor. History essentially billy's life becomes fused with this history of crime of murders on the harbor. The local union newspaper ran an editorial in belize defense arguing that the accusations were clearly an attempt to discredit the union. While he was in prison waiting for his trial to begin. Billy asked to thirties to give him the third degree and said he could prove us innocent in five minutes. He said i do not fear a trial. Because i have nothing to fear at the same time that the'll detectives looked for witnesses to testify in court. The billy had killed charles hedberg. They started looking for a man named john klingenberg. Who according to saloon. Owner and spy paddy mchugh was billy's accomplice. They found him on a lumber ship to mexico. The manager of aberdeen's largest mill william b. Mac was more than happy to get involved. Billy had shot at him before during the strike. William b mac sent a wire to the mexican port and ask the captain to basically kidnap john klingenberg. He is drugged. Knocked out imprisoned and taken back to grays harbor aboard ship when he arrives in port. He has not allowed a lawyer. He is taken into a hotel and interrogated by a private citizen. The private citizen is either. Wbz mac or the the'll agent the spy Mccue we don't really know together. They workup klingenberg story. And the story. They work up. Is that klingenberg killed. Charles had bird on billy's orders and that really serves as the center of the narrative. That billy is a murderer from that point forward. It's really fairly clear. Billy is going to be convicted of of murder during the trial. The prosecution presented klingberg's confession that he had committed the murder under orders from billy. The saloon owner and spy paddy mchugh testified the prosecution also repeatedly accused of killing a local cigar dealer even though no body had been found in spite of enormous effort and billy had not been charged. Billy's defense had several problems. The first part of his defense was that charles had bird was one of his dearest friends and that he would never have killed one of his friends. He said things like he is one of my dearest friends. I would never harm a hair on his body. He also said that had berg had told him that he was leaving Grays harbor and that he had moved to alaska. The biggest part of billy's defense was this entire operation was an anti union conspiracy. The prosecutor responded. May god strike me dead. If such a condition exists.

The fact that there's no particularly believable real world gray sightings actually supports this idea. The grays have always it seems been a story.

The large I'd bigheaded small bodied graze while admittedly creepy looking are nevertheless evocative of children and humans are evolutionary primed to find children or anything childlike. Cute. In other words we see large is and a small body whether on puppy a baby or maybe an alien as attractive and adorable. Perhaps this attraction helped the image stick the cultural image. So the alternative possibility to the idea that grazer real is that they are a deeply ingrained cultural on one. So deeply ingrained that it starts to feel real. So deeply ingrained that when someone wants to lie about an alien sighting or even chumps through a few mental hoops to manufacture one without meaning to lie, it's the grays that they reach for.

"Coming up. We delve into whether the grays have become the alien alien race because they're real or not now back to the story the second half of the twentieth century the rate of UFO AFO sidings increased drastically and some of the most iconic ones featured the grays small humanoid aliens with enormous heads and is atop sinewy childlike bodies. They abducted Betty and Barney Hill. They were at Roswell. They had encounter after encounter with real real world writers who then recorded their experiences in books sold on nonfiction shelves across the world. But the grays have come to populate the human world even even more frequently as fictional characters across media from film and TV to advertisements to our Moji keyboards the greys are everywhere anywhere. What do AFO researchers want to know is if that's because they're real? There's no evidence to suggest that the first man to record gray cray like aliens in writing H. G. Wells believed they existed but he did call the first essay describing them a prophecy in one of his novels. Perhaps perhaps it really was a prophecy. Considering the fact that these same aliens went onto appear in many real life UFO sightings. But let's revisit that some of the major events in which the grays played a role and examine just how believable they were first. There was Barney and Betty hills abduction and it reportedly happened in nineteen sixty one but the hills didn't go public with their story until one thousand nine hundred sixty five right at the height of the UFO craze while they're story with its abduction element was fairly innovative. It's still fit into a broader. UFO Zeitgeist in Cold War paranoia. Plus Barney and betty were an interracial couple at a time when race relations were tents and rapidly changing. It was a stressful difficult period for for them as we concluded in our episodes on their story it seems most likely that their abduction narrative emerged out of these combined. freshers with the help of hypnosis have no service which is to say there were probably never abducted although they likely saw some kind of identified flying object in the mountains of New Hampshire in their episode. We gave their story a believability rating of three. Not Very high which is to say they likely never saw any aliens. Graze or otherwise Roswell is no different while it was an endlessly intriguing event full of fascinating accounts almost all of that testimony. Tony was given decades after the fact and most of it was second hand including the story of the still unnamed nurse who suggested to UFO researchers. Richer's that the aliens who crashed in New Mexico where grace in our episodes on the Roswell incident we gave the crash score of four on our believability scale which which again means that the nurse probably never saw the grays in fact she may never even have existed she could easily have been a creation of the man who relayed her stories to UFO researchers the testimony of the novelist Whitley Strieber who reportedly reportedly had personal experiences with the grays was never corroborated by any evidence likewise with the docu-dramas of French writer. And filmmaker Jimmy you you finally race Antilles Film Alien Autopsy which seemed at first to be remarkable evidence that the greys existed turned out to be fake so all of these real world sightings which lend the reality of the greys credibility aren't so credible but the question still remains remains. Why is this image of the grey aliens everywhere? If they're not real. There is another possibility. Let's go back to H. G. Wells for a moment. He wasn't only the first to write about the grays. He was one of the first to write about aliens at all icon. ICK works like his eighteen. Ninety eight war of the worlds influenced generation after generation of science fiction readers and writers because because at the time there wasn't much else to inspire them hence his title father of Science Fiction his cultural influence particularly on the idea of aliens is hard to underestimate by the time. Extraterrestrial sighting started picking up speed during the Cold War in the nineteen fifties and sixties. His writing had been shaping the fictional discourse around aliens for over fifty years. We've discussed some of the many sci fi stories influenced by H. G. Wells Orson Wells Nineteen thirty eight radio adaptation of the war of the worlds Steven.

"Most readers assume the article was simply an invention of the eighteen ninety eight novel considering that the book his fiction after all in fact the article was real but it too was fiction and written by the same author as the novel itself Alf in the context of wells career. This provided a delightful if somewhat mind boggling example of just how Meta his work could be but for a Ufo the phone through it also hinted at an intriguing possibility. What if the war of the worlds was right and that I text mentioning gray like creatures? Church really was a prophecy. Not About Man's future but about a real alien race wells did did present the gray creatures as fiction but many things he presented his fiction. His novels turned out to be real eventually. His writing seemingly predicted everything from the airplane. In the atomic bomb to satellite television and the World Wide Web one example shows up in his nineteen twenty-three text men men like Gods where wells presents a futuristic utopia where people communicate exclusively through wireless systems which look a whole lot like a mix of voice mail and email Simon James Professor of English studies at Durham University and former editor of the official journal of the H. G. Wells Society. The explained wells was an imagination in a hurry. He wanted to get to the future sooner than it was going to happen. That's why he's so predictive addictive in his writing. He was a true visionary and perhaps his vision of aliens in the war of the worlds was yet another example of his imagination. Asian spying a future reality even for wells. The Gray like aliens he described in the war of the worlds seem to have struck a nerve. He couldn't quite get them out of his head. The war of the worlds wasn't wells. Only science fiction novel to describe extraterrestrial fuel beings in terms matching his man of the year million article his nineteen o one book the first man in the moon presented the moon's inhabitants similarly he described them as follows. They resembled man. In maintaining the erect attitude ended having four limbs and I have compared the general appearance appearance of their heads and the joining of their limbs to that of insects I have mentioned to their fragile slightness. Wells called these creatures selling nights after the Greek Moon Goddess. Selene he also mentioned their short stature and their big heads as well as their sophistication and intelligence intelligence very gray like in appearance interestingly however the gray like aliens wells described in each of his texts played very very different roles and exhibited very different behaviors. Here they maintain their own complex society beneath the surface of the moon but in the war of the worlds they were little more than Chattel simply food for the dominant Martians. Most readers attribute the evocative imagery in different storylines lines in both texts to wells rich vivid imagination that same imagination that won him the title father of science fiction but just like his present descriptions of technologies resembling atomic bombs and Internet. Perhaps wells gray like aliens were also an eerily really accurate prediction of something real to come. His work certainly went on to influence other authors. But these strange aliens aliens started showing up in real world extraterrestrial sightings to coming up. We'll discuss the evolution of the greys from the stuff of satire and Scifi to the stuff of news reports and exposes says now back to the story in eighteen ninety three the first written record of a huge headed lustrous.

The scope of hysteria was likely exaggerated by contemporary very newspapers looking to discredit radio as up. Reputable News source but the central fact remains. The radio. Play was extremely convincing. This was in part because of the news bulletin gimmick but it was also because the story was so compelling H. G. Wells extraterrestrials Seemed real and their ties to reality would only get stronger in the years to come beginning with Barney and Betty Hill. Frequent listeners may recall our episodes on their story middle aged interracial American couple Barney and Betty Hill claimed that they'd been abducted from rural New Hampshire back in September nineteen sixty one by a crew of aliens throughout the Cold War and its accompanying space race and technological innovation and there was increasing real world focus on extraterrestrial life. Something we've discussed throughout this show. Humanities is on the sky in in a new way and they were seeing strange things up there including plenty of UFO sightings some were easily explained as human aircraft satellites or other airborne technologies others. Were harder to identify. But the story of Barney and Betty Hill was one of the first ever reports of of an alien abduction. The hill couple shared graphic details of abuse apparently suffered at the hands of their alien captors. Their her story gained international attention making headlines. Far beyond their native New Hampshire their story came together slowly with the help of hypnosis this and at different stages of their psychological evaluations the account played out differently but the predominant image of the hill abductors was of of tiny humanoid creatures with enormous slanted. Black is in other words. The grays somehow the same visual characteristics that H. G. Wells noted in that 1893 article were showing up in a nineteen. Sixty one New Hampshire alien abduction. Listen but the presence of the GREYS didn't end with the case of Barney and Betty Hill in the late nineteen seventies UFO researchers. There's dead into an alleged extraterrestrial crash in Roswell New Mexico. They published their findings in a nineteen. Eighty book called the Roswell incident. Thanks thanks in part to their investigation. The Roswell crash which apparently occurred in nineteen forty seven is one of the most well known extraterrestrial sightings of all time time but it's iconic for reason the list of people who may have seen or who may know something about Roswell is endless white. The story have Barney and Betty Hill. We've covered the citing roswell in detail in earlier episodes but what would like to focus on. Here is the testimony of one nurse who who story was shared. Second Hand in Nineteen ninety-one book by Donald Schmitt and Kevin randle called UFO crash. At Roswell Glenn Dennis Arroz well resident working at a local funeral home in nineteen forty seven told the nurses story to the book's authors. He was apparently a friend of hers whom she confided. Fight it in and although he never named her he explained what allegedly happened to her. For the sake of this episode will call her Lucy. Lucy was working at the Roswell Army airfield as a nurse in early July nineteen forty seven. She walked into the infirmary as usual. But she'd missed a memo telling all regular nursing staff to stay away. She wasn't supposed to be there but she couldn't unsee and see what she encountered. Inside that building the infirmary was swarming with men in plastic sanitary suits. Their faces were covered with surgical surgical masks and they were all examining a pair of Cadavers unzipped bodybags. The corpses were small and mangled the size of children but their proportions weren't those of children atop their gauntlet bodies were large bulbous heads completely completely bald and on those heads enormous slanting is but few other distinct facial features no ears here's teeth noses just like h g wells had prophesized. The Roswell aliens were like the Barney and Betty Hill aliens NHS grays. But this still wasn't the end of the real world gray sightings in nineteen eighty-seven writer Whitley Lee strieber up to this point.

We'll trace the history history of this strange race and determine whether their persistence in the extraterrestrial record is the result of an incredibly unusual cultural phenomenon.

Wells wells was at twenty-seven-year-old aspiring writer. He had one nonfiction book under his belt. A textbook of biology jeep and was beginning to write short humorous articles for periodicals like the now defunct Pall Mall budget in the fall of eighteen. Ninety three he does it work on one particular story which he would eventually title the man of the year million the peace like most of wells work at the time took casillas tone. It claimed to be a review of great unwritten volume by Professor Holtz cough of Vice Nick University. This work once it was written would detail. The man of the year million per the article's title and Wells Riding took on the task of explaining what this man would look like and and how he would behave now not only is the volume wells purports to be reviewing unwritten but Holtz cough is German for blockhead and and even vice nick volks refers to an imaginary city in Thomas Carlyle satirical eighteen thirty three work SARTORI resources from there. The the city's name became code for more general indefinite unknown or imaginary place as the Merriam Webster. Dictionary defines it today. Wells readers at publications like the Palamau budget would have been accustomed to the thriving tradition of British satire and to these primed readers. All of the above were immediate giveaways that the article was an extended show of wit a joke. The joke being about the bizarre man of the year million described by this imaginary professor in his imaginary book. A being of brain rather than body. The titular man's stature ascher was small while his head was large. His skin was gray and his face was described as follows is large urge. lustrous beautiful soulful above them no longer separated by rugged brow ridges is the top of the head a glistening joining hairless dome to reet and beautiful no craggy knows rises to disturb by its own meaning shadows the symmetry of that calm calm face no vestigial ears project. The mouth is a small perfectly round aperture toothless and Gum Louis joyless Hollis on animal no futile emotions disturbing. It's round nece as it lies. Like the harvest moon or the evening star. In the wide firmament firmament of the face the description presents under irving features as great positives. This future man won't need most of the body parts we hold hold dear such as years or teeth because he relies on intellect alone for survival. He is evolved beyond those animalistic traits that defined the modern biological man such as the need to chew food instead of eating he immerses himself in nutritive fluid paddling about with with his pals instead of sitting down to dinner. No more table manners. Just communal baths the article was accompanied by an illustration of a creature shirt resembling a fetus. Man's future apparently was visually similar to his past as a baby to readers in eighteen ninety. Three the irony of the whole thing was hilarious or meant to be but this portrayal of the man of the year million also present. Something that sounds a whole lot ought like the greys to UFO enthusiasts in the twentieth century the image seems less amusing and more intriguing. uh-huh and what wells did next only increased the intrigue his career accelerated. He went on to author dozens of novels short stories and books of social commentary before he died in nineteen forty six but in generations to come he'd be best known as the father of science. It's fiction one of his most famous Sifi. Texts was the eighteen ninety eight novel.

"Here's the thing the people that you don't like you don't like the people that you do like you do like this one character who i did not like at the beginning and now. He's one of my favorites which boy that's like picks on and he's like can't be bothered because he's a dick. The oh the hickey. yeah yeah. he's my favorite. He's dating lucy or someone in the musical episode. Yeah i mean. I guess that doesn't work out probably dies. She leaves like a dick. She leaves he. He leaves a big opportunity to stay with her. Now she goes and takes that opportunity. O shea happened in another show in the last second. she's like me. Tell me to stay. He's like fuck you ask my favorite. He's like he's an asshole but like with the heart of golden there but it takes seasons to chip away ship away and ship away and then eventually all the other people fall off and he's like changed because his character growth is real. What about yang. Eventually she leaves because she's sancho and she's huge. Yeah she's great. She's amazing but she's always amazing amazing since they want as she on something else. Now she's on a show called killing eve or something about some serial killer something within school host golden globes with. What traffic did the you. But i am was. That was pretty good. But i was looking up more. I was looking stuff to watch great. Because i have like a solid hour between like when i lay down when i go to bed. I like to watch something before. I go to bed and i watched i finished. Ozark caught up matt now. And i'm just like what is the show. Inside enemy i best shows just generic best show is number. One nick shows are about how guy kills people besides you and dexter. There's a bunch of them apparently but there's like a few from the bbc. There's like random ones that are just like there's a high killing people and his ladies chase him but she to fuck him. Also i'm like. I don't wanna watch that. Which is weird. Because sandra oh's is girl and they wanna fuck. It's the same thing you just said it with the girls. Yeah it's a weird premise per show. So it's a thing. I guess it's a new. The new serial killers new vampires solve. Wow real smart. What's going to be the cult leader. Be the new new era killers. I think that people were right about leprechauns. They were just wrong as a man. It's hot oh shit you're leprechaun's steady wrong here. Okay nick episode one. You know just how well marriage you felt. S episode and you chief sleeps with iran with a one night stand. And you find out very classic. Oh i know your name names dare. We should have breakfast. She's like no work run into them at work and it's her boss. And that's the contrivance of the show for sixteen years show feels very early two thousands which is feels that way. Hard relationship exists until derek steph dare dies in season twelve or thirteen. They have three kids. They have whoa life and they love each other eventually works okay..
