I'm going to take a little break. I'm on the phone with Judge Billington, the author of a number of books. But most recently and most You've really outdone yourself with this one. Comiskey Park's last world Serious the history of the 59 Chicago, wait socks. This's the pregame pregame show. The Sox are playing Cleveland and we will be back in two minutes. Uh, I'm going to end this after hours afternoon show with church, Billington and before the Sox came because he's written Comiskey parts. Last World Series, the history of the 1959 Chicago White Sox that is filled truck with so many interesting people, characters. I'm going to get to a couple in a second, but I need I want your assessment of elbow. Pez is a manager. He always to me, certainly is a child in the face of the operation seems sort of colored list to me. Was he a good manager? He was in many ways he seemed to be kind of a colorless guy because he was up against some stiff competition and no kid in the colorful this department in those days, you know you had me Oda Rocher in New York City. You had Casey Stengel in New York. It was kind of the you know, the beloved before Moon of baseball. I'm not disparaging his intense, sure. Baseball Eckman B. But he also had incredibly great teams fed by a minor league came a majorly connected like a minor league team to Kansas for the athletics book in itself, in terms of how the athletics kept feeding the Yankees, their best players, But L. Lopez from 1952 1959 never finished lower than second place while took two teams to the pennant. His winning percentages five for nine years is 5 80, for we've all been impressed, and justifiably so. The job Joe Maddon did in Chicago. I imagine that same job finishing second place or first place in an eight team league in years in a row. Amazing the other the other character in this who brought back I had no idea, for instance. That Hank Greenberg, the legendary one of the great grades, Jewish ballplayer in history, was married to the errors of the Gimbels department store. Fortune. Yes, Carol Carol Gimble in Joe should be. Hank Greenberg were quite the couple in the early fifties on day divorced. He was Picked by Bill Vic to help from the Cleveland Ball club back in the late forties, thought the world of Greenberg wondered a baseball player. In his decision making realm. He made a lot of money for Greenberg because every team that vex sold is sold for a big profit. But Greenberg at the time, he was kind of living a madman existence. He was divorced from Miss Kim Bo Hee, for reasons unknown to me, got custody of the Children and to be fair with her took an apartment in Manhattan, where she insisted on staying and would fly on weekends to Chicago. Help on the White Sox in the executive house at the time? Yeah, kind of Ah, Harry Harry existence. Greenberg was very physically imposing man as well. He was no questions for the trim but athletically built. He and Chuck Comiskey got along like oil and water. That's the legacy here of the team. So he thought and in many ways, justifiably, so. He and Greenberg were constantly at sword points at one point of Muskie offered to make peace with back if Greenberg would go in a core specs that noted that I also had the very good fortune and still have the good fortune of knowing Mrs back. Very, very impressive. I just want to read. I want to read one talking about, you know, one of the things that the ball players we know the ball players and But behind the scenes here after they've won the right in June. I just want you to hear these names. In June 1961 Bernard Upton, a 39 year old LaSalle Street attorney and longtime Comiskey acquaintance offered Vex Group a generous 4.8 million for the 54% of the team and amount to put the franchise of value at 8.9. Captain had formed a partnership with comedian and television star Danny Thomas. MOVE. ECON Greenberg put off captain and Thomas until June 6 when they rejected the offer. There are so many interesting characters and fascinating business stories floating through this thing that, yeah, end of big, big part of the history of that team and also of that era of baseball. Sure. But I am on also, why the socks, you know, didn't you become the Yankees? What say, for instance. The and the other great thing is everybody of a certain age in this town remembers You know what? That night they one and the fire Commissioner Robert when carried, carried away by the euphoria of the night and taken it upon himself to activate ship cargo lands, 110. Air raid sirens at full volume. You have really been able to check Billington bring this team back in all of its a colorful, colorful Facets. Put it that way. Who, if you had to pick former Cubs fan who's your favorite player on that team without question for me? It would probably be Nellie Fox. Or perhaps his roommate, Billy Pierce. Yeah, I had a very good fortune. Billie Pierce passed away about two years, right? He was extremely helpful in feeding me information and talking to me, Um, willingly all the time about this team and about the history of the team. He's quite a character and somebody who is smaller than two thirds of the people listening to your show yet and Connie Mack gave up on him when he was a teenager after he had dropped out of. I believe eight grade professional baseball where the White Sox picked him up for a song and a dance. He became the White fax, Uh, leading player. Only one other player in modern history struck out last frequency. And that was Lloyd Waner. Fox's strikeout ratio was about one for every 40 games. It's astonishing. Yeah, and you know the team itself. It's a different game than it was idea or say It was a better game. People didn't either walk, strike out or hit homeruns. They had the team. Struck out 634 times during the season, but they had 1325 hits on they struck. They had more walks, bedding or had more walks than it did strike out. Unheard of. I mean, imagine if somebody like Adam Dunn or Alfonso Soriano had statistics like that today, unheard off Well, and also you, do you the pictures to pictures were dead. What would The unheard of thing. These days of pitching a complete game. There were no pitch counts. I mean, Billy Pierce said, You know, you know, al, my arm hurts. Then he may be would take him out. It just that's one of the great things about this about your book truck, and I don't mean to go. So overboard on it, But it's you know, it's less than 200 pages. And it really it reads like a I know what happened. I know what happened and it still you've written it in a in a really thrilling manner. And again, the The business aspect of it. The business and sort of I don't want to make it some don't the sociological aspect of it to the whole Bridgeport. Kind of thing. Go ahead. I want very much wanted to point out what a big component of Chicago's economic prestige having two teams was in those days and how you know the White Sox dominated through the 50 from 1952 1967. They are drew the Cubs. All except for one year in 1958, and the implications of a World Series on the South side went so far is that even the PGA took out ads boasting and hoping for a Milwaukee Braves Chicago White Sox pendant because their revenues were in the doldrums. And of course, that they took people could take the North Shore line, which is extension the TA from Comiskey Park all the way to County Stadium if they wanted and then city of all, organised Nations, So that is a possible revenue. Boone. That's that's fabulous. What do you What do you think of of the current team?.

Internet: Old TV caused village broadband outages for 18 months

"It sounds like the plot of a SCIFI novel. In fact, it's literally part of the plot of a sci-fi novel. I read last month Hank Greens a beautifully foolish endeavor every morning for eighteen months the broadband Internet went out in a small village in Wales. Engineers ran a cable replacement program, but it didn't work every morning at seven am on the dut the Internet would go out for the entire village. The engineers were stumped into the used a monitoring device called a spectrum analyzer and walked around the village looking for electrical noise. Engineer Michael Jones said quotes at seven. Am like clockwork. It happened our device picked up a large burst of electrical interference in the village end quote. But it was not alien tech, it was instead a secondhand television set that an anonymous householder was turning on every morning at seven am and which omitted enough true `interference specifically a single high level impulse noise or nine to affect the broadband signal and knockout the Internet in the whole village. The TV owner has said that they were mortified and has agreed not to turn the TV on ever again. Quoting BBC Suzanne Rutherford Open reached chief engineers lead for Wales said anything with electrical components from outdoor lights to microwaves can potentially have an impact on broadband connections. We just advise the public to make sure that they're electrical appliances are properly certified and meet current British standards she said and quotes. which is good to know except most people probably wouldn't be aware that their device is causing any sort of problem i. mean it took them eighteen months to work this out I don't think that your average Joe would necessarily ever think that technology like outdated TV could affect modern tech like broadband but of course, it can and I do think it's interesting to see the interplay of older and newer technology and almost reminds me of how devices that run on electricite go haywire at hogwarts because all of the magic interferes with them, which was definitely based on a real scientific theory and not a convenient explanation as to why the characters didn't watch TV or use computers.

"The meteor man beg to differ. They've been looking at this whole satellite and that at the beginning of the verse. Yeah it was like. It's a cold place at the end of the verse. It's like it's a hot place and I'm like where were we going here? Yeah it's not just a hot way exact. And we're talking about the lyrics to a pop song that Hank and I both have a deep and long term fascination with Just that the world starts out cool and they say it's getting colder. Yeah it's that we don't just end with the water getting warmer so you might as well swim. We end with my world's on fire. Actually it's it's on fire. It's a cold place but it's on fire. Yeah but also he likes it that way. Yeah but they say it gets colder at the beginning. He seems very concerned about the fact that it's a cold place and he doesn't like it. You know the and it's a hot place. He does like it so at least he's got some consistency there that he prefers the heat right. He's a warm weather person. Yes and he needed to talk himself in to warm weather. So as you know Hank I think that the entire Song all-star by smash mouth is about being a very famous rock star. Yeah but that it was written by people who were not yet very famous rockstars. And that's through. This was this was the thing that did it. The thing that makes the song so brilliant is that now like one hundred nights a year and smash mouth sing about what they thought being famous would feel like before they were famous but now they are singing it as famous people right and what they realize that the world the world is neither warmer colder it is actually very similar and they remain just people. Yes but the question is. There's still some weird stuff happening like I bet it is weird on a day-to-day basis to be smashmouth. Oh certainly yes absolutely. Now we've left out the middle part of the verse which is about the meteor men. Yeah they do beg to differ with the with the initial assessment that the world is cold and they say it gets colder right as whoever they is. It's not the meteor men who were who are saying it's gets it gets colder right. The meteor men are presumably climate scientists or meteorologists. Got What I think. They forgot what meteorologists call two. They called them meteor men. Which is obviously you shouldn't it's an inclusive term meteorologists while meteor men. Less so yeah. But if you try to put meteorologist into that neater. It's a nightmare. Although God knows that didn't stop them elsewhere in the song I mean this is nice. That is a nice feeling sound though but the media men beg to differ. That's nice. Yeah that's nice. I I understand why they did..

Today's podcast is is instead sponsored by ice bottles ice bottles as long as they have not even slightly melted. You can get through. TSA with them. And this podcast is also brought to you. By the ten foot giant wooden forest ranger inside of the Missoula. International Airport can't can't go through security because it literally wouldn't fit and of course they vodkas a war on the subject of airports is brought to you by airport. Weekly my favorite favorite magazine. Hank I really want to answer this question from Adam who writes dear John and Hank so Bill Gates has like a bunch of money and so so do tons of other people like Elon. Musk my question is could Bill Gates cure cancer gates just donated a billion or even two billion dollars to cancer research within that just cure cancer. He's never gonNA spend that money anyways. Do Billionaires like Bill Gates any on. Musk have the power to solve our biggest problems. And if so why don't day so Adam. This is a great question but the short answer is that no single billionaire has the resources to cure cancer in part. Because we don't really know what the the medical breakthroughs will be. We don't know where to put that Research money most effectively but we know that no single individual has that amount of money me because we spend billions and billions of dollars every year on cancer research and we we make progress. We have made progress a lot of progress in the last twenty years and much more progress in the last sixty years but yeah we play so much weight on these few individuals who do control a ton of wealth wealth. I would argue far too much wealth and I would argue that they have a responsibility to give the vast majority of it back but the truth is that it millionaire's in the United States. Control much more wealth in total then billionaires do and we almost never talk about that because we're so focused on billionaires and what what really drives change in terms of health whether it's you know addressing malaria or HIV or burke yellow sus in impoverished countries trees or or chronic diseases in wealthy ones. What really drives change is public spending and Governments spend much more. You're on research than any individual could and to me. It's really about finding ways to tax. Yeah Corporations Shins and individuals appropriately and then using that money wisely because public money is much bigger and more powerful than even the wealthiest individual Joel. Yeah because people working together are bigger than any one person in. That's like a clear truth. And that's the justification for the existence of government in any case it turns out. Cancer is super complicated. We it is not one disease it is many diseases. oftentimes overlapping with each other. It is many things that go wrong wrong. In order for this one thing to become something that is negatively affecting health that has been an a an ongoing story that has been like a huge bummer for people who who do with this research because it turns out that there is no cure for cancer in there. There aren't even individual cures for individual cancers because each each prostate cancer is slightly lately different from the next and sometimes they involve the same mutations and sometimes they involve ones. We've never seen before so that that nut is particularly difficult to crack crap. Yes however there are easier nuts to crack exactly in HIV and tuberculosis in many diseases. That are preventable. By vaccine's as many diseases that are preventable by having access to clean water and those things there is money out there like the resources are currently available to to save those lives. And we aren't doing. We know exactly how to do it and we aren't and we aren't doing it all right John for more serious question. This one comes from Elisa who says dear Hankins John. I've been wondering are stickers stuck in weird places going to be our civilization's cave art forty thousand years will some teens hiking through the golic let countryside discover an ancient underground cavern absolutely filled with Andre the giant pregnant Harry styles stickers under the right conditions would they still be we like comprehensible and most importantly would they still smell like bananas. Archaeology is cool L. Isis so hank while I was researching scratch and sniff stickers for the anthropology and reviewed. I talked to some chemists about the micro encapsulation technology that allows scratch and sniff stickers to work and from what I could gather it his unlikely. That forty thousand years from now those micro in capsules will still be encapsulating sent. So I don't think are scratch and sniff stickers will work but in the right circumstances couldn't are pregnant Harry style stickers. Still be out there. Yeah Harry styling. Well I think the main thing that you're looking at here is is chemical reactions that are happening and the things that are going to affect that are the internal chemical reactions So if the paper word that the that the sticky stuff is on the paper has some acid in it that acid might diffuse into the sticky stuff and break the sticky stuff down or there might be just like the sticky stuff itself isn't perfectly chemically stable and as the years goes on it will become less sticky but there there is definitely sticky stuff stuff that that won't happen with. I don't know if it's on the backs of any commercially available stickers but but but okay so even if the stickers fall off of this hypothetical okay fall hank imagine teenagers the future like you know unearthing a cave. And I don't care if the stickers are on the on the ground I just care it's still president Harry styles. Yeah if it's dark in that cave and if it's dry in that cave than yeah and also like one of the main drivers of chemical reactions anywhere as oxygen in which is a fairly reactive molecule the best case circumstances if the stickers actually buried in some kind of oxygen denying environment even if future earth that too dark If we kill all the plants that will be a problem. I think the plants will make it with or without out us. I think the plants will make it. It's the motto. Two Thousand Nineteen Hank before we get to the all important news from Mars and AFC see Wimbledon. I want to share with you. A few comments that people wrote in win.

Like, there's a few things that I'd be willing to risk the time line for but that ain't one of them. Yeah. Also, we've got some updates Hank Asia who you'll remember broke a lamp while pet sitting and spilled red wine Asia wrote to say that everything worked out just fine with the broken lamp incident as she is currently sitting for the same people again and they've also booked her for next month nicely.

But then you notice that something happened because like I noticed a little bumper something, but I didn't I didn't know what had happened is just like a highly dramatic lots of. Yeah. Lots of screaming, I was a little confusing anyway, turn my bike around and hang screaming at me. So mad. He's probably like seventy. That's what he's saying. He's screaming and crying. You ran over my face ran over my face. And I was like no I didn't. And then I looked at him and the bike tire. There was like a tire market went all the way across his face. And I was like, oh, oh, I I did. And look. Survived. And then I assumed that we hid that from mom somehow. Well, you were like you were like I got a job. I go to. I was like, listen if we've got no serious symptoms. No lasting confusion. All wake you up a couple times tonight, just to make sure you're good. Let's just wash your face and be done with this. So so is revived I would guess that. I have sturdy your bones than a, squirrel. But look if you like ride a bike depends, maybe the kind of bike which is a big fat tire or as a big skinny tire because that's going to change your pressure situation. Like if that's bad news. That's like a knife on wheels. If it's if it's like an under inflated tire in like a mountain bike. I think the squirrels gotta get got shocks on the front. That's gonna give them a little more protection and it did run away. And look the other thing to remember Ryan is that like? Look every squirrel. Eventually dies, a sad and painful death. It's just the nature of squirrels. And obviously the only way the only like possibly potentially not like sad and painful way for squirrelled ago instant like slowly fall asleep in the cold and freeze to death, which isn't an option for central Florida. Squirrels. Do you? Remember when I was in the hospital in Titusville, Florida came very kindly and visited me and stayed with me, and the doctor I kept saying that I didn't want to die. I don't wanna die Titusville. What you mean? I I don't all be honest. Like, I don't I don't wanna die in Florida. I grew up there. It's a lovely place. I have wonderful friends there, and I wanna die somewhere else. And the doctor was like, you know, I think just air on the side of caution. We'd like to keep you for the night. And I was like, Nope. No, sir. Put me in an ambulance and drive me to the state line. I am not spending tonight in Florida. It's true. And he got out of there. And you like looking back. I thought that the you are a little bit over exaggerating the situation but looking back that was like, not great. And also it was not as not. Was not a great hospital. And it was not a great situation. The weird thing about my hypochondria. Hang of course, is that. I do sometimes get weird diseases. So it's very hard for me to tell myself. Like, no, you're probably fine. When like I've had orbital. So you latest, and I've had labyrinth Itis, and I've had meningitis like I've had a lot of the ISIS.

That's literally with the first words out of my mouth. Yeah. It sounds like it sounds like all sort of colitis. I hope it's not that. Because that's not good.

Hang on Hayes too hard to say that way. Johnny. Yeah. I don't know Hank. All right. Thank we got another question. This comes from Mabel who writes, dear John and Hank is it appropriate to gift secondhand books. I have some books that I've read and loved, but will probably never read again and my friend's birthdays coming up so instead of buying a second copy of the book could I just give the one I already have or is that weird and unacceptable. Many. Thanks, Mabel, Mabel, Mabel. Mobile. I have had friends do this a bunch and thing that I really appreciate I have one friend who just this particularly almost always gives the secondhand book on birthday or anniversary or something. And and she will write on the inside of the cover a little information about why she thinks the book and then sign it. And I'll be like whenever I look at that book. I'm like, oh, yeah. She sent me this book. And and this is what she thought about it. And gave me a little something to go on. And it's almost like sort of half card half like present, which I really like don't tell my publisher that I said this because of course, with my business person had on believe that you should only buy my books in hardcover, and that you should buy a new copy for each time.

Hang on Hayes hard to say that way. Johnny. I don't know Hank Fatone. Fatone? Someone in my attic. But I'm too scared to check it out someone. Yeah. What should I do like Oscar and Tony, Emma? Emmy that makes sense. All right. So there might be someone in your attic. It sounds like like so for complete clarity. I once worked in an office building that was not very nice. And sometimes like there would be like noses above above like the bathroom, and is soon that it was rats or coons or something. And like even like at one point. I saw a bunch of stuff had fallen through the vent. So I thought maybe somebody was building a nest up there, and we found out that it was actually human being living between the floors of the building. There was a person who lived between the second and third floor of hang sold office building. I don't think that's the situation here. But I want to emphasize that you can't rule it out. I've looked at YouTube videos on this topic. And it does seem to occasionally happen. I don't know why looked at YouTube videos on this topic. But it's like seven times people were found to be living in someone else's attic. That's an example title. So here's what you're going to do sounds like one YouTube video that the algorithm has correctly identified as one that John would click on and also won the John would click on like the YouTube knows so much about you. It's like, you know, I know that this video isn't going to be good for you. But you are gonna watch it. So we have decided to show you this thumbnail. Exactly. Yeah. It's like, hey, I believe that this guy wants Google. Is there someone in my attic? And so nine years later, I'm going to show him this video. That says yes, yes, there's someone in your attic. Emmy, we're going to call an exterminator. And the exterminator is going to come and go into your attic and one of two things is going to happen one. There's going to be a raccoon, which I think is like overwhelmingly the most likely scenario. And that raccoon is going to get dealt with one way or another to the exterminator is going to encounter the person who's living in your attic. And then that's their problem because their house now. The exterminator has inherited your home, and they have to deal with this. I mean, I'm laughing. But this really is one of my great, terrors terrifying. It is terrifying. Don't like it. And now I need to check. My attic. There's a there's a big difference between like hearing noises and hearing people right like..

Dear hankins, John, you might know us from the internet where we've been making videos back and forth on the YouTube channel blog brothers since two thousand seven as well as creating educational series. Like crash course inside show among many, others were also authors. My books include the fault in our stars looking for Alaska and turtles all the way down and my first novel and absolutely remarkable thing just came out, and it's excellent it debuted at number one on the New York Times bestseller list. Anyway, we have a podcast in which you know, what just wrote the intro. Welcome to dear hankins, John or as I prefer to think of it. Dear John and Hank. It's a podcast where my brother, John, and I answer questions give you advice and bring you all the week's news from both Mars and the world's greatest third third-tier English soccer team AFC Wimbledon. We've always said or advices dubious. But sometimes we give properly. Good advice. That's a pretty bold assertion. Like remember, Devon in the secret snake or the time Pia wanted to know how to tell her family that she had secretly learned to play the fiddle. Also, recently, we told Lauren to change her name to a gang of Turkey's when she was going perspective students who happen to also be called Lauren. Okay. Maybe we'll stick with dubious advice for now. But remember Ashley we had some pretty good advice for her question. Right. All the teams. Dear John and Hank. I was babysitting for family. I don't know very well and the baby took his first steps was there. That's cute. Should I tell the parents Ashley? Oh, man. No, definitely don't do that. What see I would argue if anything you should lie in the other direction. You should be like, listen, not only your baby take his first steps. He also said his first word, and it was Ashley. Dead in the us. And he said Hello. Ashley, I love you more than I love my mother. I know they're only paying you twenty dollars an hour. And that's crap. Don't accept it. I'm worth so much more than that. That's what he said. That's all that's all then he stopped and he clammed up and he hasn't said anything since. So I don't know. That's just take take thick what you will from that walked all the way across the room told me he did not approve of my compensation package and then clam backup. CNN's done. It's deer hanging John from WNYC studios. Subscribe now wherever you get your podcasts and best they say in our hometown. Don't forget to be awesome..

"And I guess there is still time for things to change. Hank? What's the news from Mars? Is it going to cheer me up? No, it isn't. Because I also get a lot of Mars news now. On my Google homepage. Because it knows that I'm interested in Mars. What's the news from Mars? Well, there is there's good news from Mars it. Just isn't good news from Mars opportunity Rover. So there was a study recently released in nature geoscience suggesting that the water that we have found on Mars might. You know, they did a bunch of math, basically, let's just say weird math models. They figured out that even though there is not a lot of oxygen in the Martian atmosphere. It's zero point one four five percent oxygen, and that is a very thin atmosphere. So it's very little oxygen and oxygen is good for helping complex life evolves. So life can happen without oxygen. In fact, that's how it happened on earth. But then once oxygen is available life can use that to do a bunch of good interesting things with he can use that to to form more complex structures, basically. And so this this new model indicates that the water on Mars, very likely contains more oxygen than we assumed it would and also enough oxygen that complex single celled life, so more complicated. Single celled life could happen. But also potentially. Like, very simple multicellular life could exist with this level of oxygen in dissolve in the water, and that looks like sponges that kind of moldy cellular life, which is right on the edge of where single cells in multi cells sort of sort of. Function and like having like more specialized tissues, not so much. But but definitely having cells working together and and forming into like a single organism that has lots of different cells. So that that oxygen allows for more chemically interesting stuff to get done. And and so obviously, this doesn't mean that life does exist on Mars. It just means that like it could and it could exist in a way that we didn't know about before. So it could be like we've known for a long time that life on Mars probably isn't going to be like a crawling around probably isn't going to have opposable thumbs. That said, yeah. But this is the first evidence that we've had that based on what we know about the chemistry of the planet and the water that we could have multi cellular life, right based on what we know about about the chemistry of of Mars and also based on we know about the chemistry of multicellular life. It just and that's pretty cool is a requirement to have a certain amount of oxygen dissolved in water for that to happen and Mars and many places does have an oxygen and for that to happen. And is there anything about the water on Mars that makes multi cellular life less likely or impossible? Well, if we took multicellular life from earth and put it in like an analog Martian water. It would not survive. It's got a lot of harsh chemicals. Perchlorate s- are like a kind. I onic compound that is dissolved. And that is actually what allows like these sort of salts these salts are what allows for the water to be liquid on the surface sometimes and also for the liquid water that we found substantially like, you know, more than a Columbia below the surface. That Brian allows the water to stay liquid even at lower than freezing temperatures. But Brian also would would kill anything from earth. But we know that I've Aleutian does a good job of selecting for things that can live in weird situations and per chlorate, s- definitely are a harsh chemical. But maybe if you have all been that situation, maybe they're just food or just, you know, just just the natural environment. And so it doesn't feel that way. So that's we actually the Sasha team got to talk to some of the scientists who are on this paper. And then they were like, you know, like, we we don't know what how life would would evolve to to handle high preclude environment because it's never had to happen on earth. So, you know, maybe there would be mechanisms that we wouldn't have imagined. But there's no existing earth organism that could survive in what we know about existing Martian water. Correct. Okay. That's interesting. Yeah. So if we discover life on Mars, it will be like truly weird to us. It's not like they're going to be like, oh, it's an amoeba..

"Grow as a community to me public education is one of the massive earth changing innovations of the last two hundred years, and so I really think it's important to vote on those issues because other people definitely feel empowered to vote on them. Even if they don't think they're directly affected by them, as I sure John I got another question comes from Dalton who asks Hank, John. There's a particular spot on my chin that I cut almost every time. I shave I've tried going with the grain against the grain perpendicular to the grain always similar results. Grow a beard and forget about it. But I'm a facial hair is too thin. So look. Awful twenty four. So that's not an issue that is likely to get solved with time. Can you help me shave better? Yes. I have seen roadhouse Dalton. Okay. John. I don't I don't like other than doing what I just did. My eyebrow hairs and just being like, okay. You guys are coming out with tweezers. I don't I don't have much suggestion here help help Dalton. Well, I think the most important thing is actually a it's having a good razor blade. Okay. Having a really sharp razor blade a new razor be it's really working, whether it's shaving cream, or whatever you use to kind of lubricate the surface of your face for shaving really got a work that in carefully. I have a spot that I could probably sixty percent of the time even doing all of these things because there's just one spot on my face. It's near my chin where I don't know if the skin is thinner or what? But I have found that if I really work in the shaving cream stuff that I use us like fancy shaving cream stuff can really work that in for a while. And then I've got a really nice good razor. I can usually avoid getting cut there. I also another thing that I've tried to do is just understand that I can get cut there. And it's not a big deal. It's not the end of the world like cut myself shaving, right before I was on TV for sixty minutes, and they didn't have a hair and makeup department to like fix me up or whatever so Sarah used this magical stuff called makeup on my cut and it went away. And as a result of that. I realized that there is this thing called makeup that can do a lot of different things to make your face look better. And I've been told not to use it by the social order, but the social order is totally wrong about this. Which reminds me joined that this podcast is brought to you by makeup, which is the thing that you can put on your face to make it look slightly different vailable to people of all genders new product out. Now make up. And of course, is also brought to you by good on Chol, Hank. Go Hank distributing obvious advice in an old man's voice. Since earlier today.

"Service award in Orlando. And remember how I hated DisneyWorld and hall of presidents is the only place that's air conditioned and doesn't have a line. Okay. So I would just go into the hall of presidents and chew tobacco and watch the hall of president and go right back in for eight hours. That's good John. That's wonderful. What a good teen boy thing to do John. You just really couldn't be bothered to enjoy the happiest place on her. Oh, I enjoyed it. A great deal because I'm telling you, if you watched the whole president show enough, you will find on the other side of it transcendence the likes of which space mountain cannot provide. All right. Well, they have it from Johns. I'm real real the doozies of advice. Don't you don't chew tobacco arena. I know that probably goes without saying, but it's one of the great shames of my life. It was really gross. Who is such a weird? I remember being in a family wedding. And our grandmother nanny. I remember nanny walking up to me and looking at me and just like something shifting in her eyes. And her saying are you dipping me being like, yeah. She just like looked at me for a half a second and turned away. That was it that was the end of my relationship with chewing tobacco. Oh god. I've got a little unsure how that setting was going to end. No. And then I shows chewing tobacco over my grandmother. Oklahoma says there's nothing better than a dip to get get you some uncle inks. Aw. Oh, man. Wouldn't that? Be great, Hank. Why don't we still chewing tobacco at DAV dot com. There's so many items that we could sell don't. Yeah. We've completely avoided all of the things that cause cancer in our addictive. What are we doing? Yeah. People love that shit. They can't stop literally. But I think that we definitely answered the question which is watched the magic show over and over and over again learn about this show. Yeah. Get into the magic show, especially because you might have a career as a magician's assistant in front of you or maybe even a career as a magician. If you start to figure out how the tricks work. Hopefully, you will definitely know how the one trick works. Hopefully that it's been explained to you. All right comes from. Matty, who writes, dear John and Hank? I am a registered absentee-voter. Exclamation point. I love your enthusiasm, Mattie. I love the exclamation point. I think it communicates correctly that we should all be psyched about voting, and we should all have plans to vote, and we should all know where our sample ballots, and we should all know what our save got its look like, and where polling places are vote dot or I'm not gonna stop Hank. I'm not gonna stop until actually when I stopped because the election is over. I'm just gonna start in for twenty nineteen for your exciting county Commissioner races. I am currently going to college away from where I live and a mailing my ballot back soon. However as I'm filling out my ballot. I find that there are tone of local positions and even some state offices that don't have multiple candidates. I find this especially troubling. Because I don't agree with a lot of these candidates even worse. There's a state court position where neither of the candidates reflect my views at all I can't even find the lesser of two evils. There is usually a lesser of two evils, Mattie. But. That's for another time. Can I just leave this part of the ballot? Blink also. There are some local initiatives on the ballot concerning Texas and property. I don't own property there, nor do I pay the taxes that the ballot concerns should not vote for or against these initiatives will not voting for any local elections, remove me from the discourse of the town that I am already physically removed from actually quite happy. Not matty. Skew. So there's there's two things in there..

"Or I could do with that spoil it or you the kind of person who wants to know the age date of your death or you the kind of person who's just like no all run with my chances. Oh, no. I wanna know everything John. Okay. Then I can tell you a bunch of things that are going to happen to you in the next two years. One of the things is that you're going to be injured you're going to notice his body breaking down in weird ways. And you're going to be reminded of that line from Scott Fitzgerald's crackup that begins, of course, all life is a process of breaking down. But in the past when you've read that line, you've always focused on the stuff that comes after because that's the dramatic stuff. But it turns out that the fact that all life is a process of breaking down is in and of itself, pretty dramatic. Then another thing that's going to happen is that when you're like thirty nine and a half and pretty burnt out and overwhelmed, and you realize that like your primary responsibilities are to your family, and it's very difficult to. Balance those responsibilities with the responsibility you've taken on you're going to try to retire. And gonna call your brother, and you're going to say, I I would like to retire and your brother's going to say, well, no, that's not how it works. And you're going to say, well, but no, I don't understand other people retire and your brother's going to say, no, I'm sorry. But that's not allowed. So I have. Update on the situation. Okay. Great. I got sick of them. And I just yanked. It yet him out. Bad strategy. Well, I would like to inform you that about half of the eyebrow hair is grey. Well, yeah. Of course. So that's that's that's also a thing. So I just gotta have like like all of my gray. Eyebrow hairs will grow forever, and all my normal like view eyebrow hairs will be short and in hiding behind my giant gray eyebrow. Hairs, Hank, buddy. You're a great person. But you don't have any youthful eyebrow. Hairs old eyebrow hairs, and you have less old eyebrow hairs. All right. We have another question. It's actually two questions. They came in to our Email within seconds of each other. The first one came from Isaac who wrote dear John and Hank my boss fifteen year old sister keeps telling me to stop dab. Oh, well, but I can't stop dabbing. I think it's an illness. How do I stop dabbing any dubious advices appreciated? Call me, sir Isaac moments later, Danielle asks my annoying thirteen year old brother won't stop dabbing. How do I get him to stop dabbing?.

"I, I feel like I should have that sentence printed out to on the inside of my wrist, and then I should never get on the internet again. We talked a lot about college stuff and whether or not books are better than movies and her dad was okay, but kind of eccentric and terrified of rod. So that was fun. I guess also been stuck with a severe case of writer's block for literally years and your comparison to this experience being a young adult novel gave me a great idea, much of Katie Katie. I cannot wait for your novel about this goes. It's gold. It's gold Katie. You know what I was thinking the other day, Hank I was thinking about your book which has been on my mind constantly since I read it. And I was thinking that I used to feel when I was younger like experiences I had were incomplete until I shared them with the people. I loved the most and in a way experiencing things alone, especially wonderful things was partly enjoyable because I knew that I would tell people about them later, or I would share those memories later. And now instead of needing to share something with the people I love in order for it to feel real have to share it with everyone. Yeah, I feel that way about thought sometimes like it's not a real thought unless I've I've got it to a place where it can be shared with large audience. Yeah. And that kind of limits the the number of thoughts that I feel like our. Thinkable. Yeah. Eah, I'm calm close to the on the internet. Hank I'm close to bring it back around. No feel like I feel like I have had a much more extreme response to your book than you have. I feel like you maybe didn't read the parts that were about how good the internet can be. Yeah, but none of those experiences occur on an open internet that is owned and controlled by a few extremely large companies. All right. Let's get to the important news from Mars. AFC Wimbledon Hank. What is the news from Mars this week? Come on little Rover. I don't have any. I don't have any just don't have for whatever reason have any opportunity news this week. We'll talk about it next week maybe, but but I do have Mars twenty twenty Rover news John. Oh, good. So they are. They have completed the chassis like the big box where all of the things go and get bolted onto. And that's very important part of the of the process of creating this big, big, giant Rover, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory has released a very good. An interesting story about how they paint this thing, so they they, they paint it. It's just it's aluminum and the process of of painting it is suppressing -ly. Manual and because you know it's not like they're gonna make more than one of them. And also it is painted by guy who paints cars. So that's how he learned how to paint things. And he will like he does like pin striping and flames on cars and motorcycles. He's even painted guitars in his in his career as a painter. And so like this guy started out being doodoo customizes the hot hot cars and now works for the small team and paints various spacecraft. In addition, also still painting cars. So he this a great story. You can find it. You just like painting cars for martis is the JPL story, and you find out a lot like the lot of process goes into this process and they also have to tape. So So like like the the parts parts that. that they don't want to get painted like success. They're going to be like, we're ri- wires, running a risk gonna, get bolted onto the Rover. They tape it with.

"My baseball cards that were a huge part of my childhood. You left them at the house and you just left them there. I didn't take them to my dorm room when I went to college. That's not the same thing as no longer wanting to own my Carl. Your strengths ski rookie card. It's sort of amazing that that like of the things I've done, I've actually gotten not as much. Flack for that as I should have like you. You've been very kind of out that over the years? I like I have. I have friends. I've lost over much less just to be clear. It's not even that it was that bad of a thing to do. It's just that it was so weird. I don't know to be speaks, you're absolute obsession with turning things into money. But if you if you want to. Just like, how do you, how am I going to monetize my boredom? 'cause I honestly, if you wanna psychoanalyze me that I was bored and I was like, how do I do something that will make my time seem worthwhile as like a fifteen year olds? Why don't I still my brother's four thousand very carefully organized baseball cards while he's working at out, takes restaurant in home, would Alabama making this make this sound making this sound worse than it was how many baseball cards there were. I don't remember any of this. I plead the fifth. The statute of limitations are out on this one. I'm done no more. Well, I question turned down the subpoena. Okay, this. Okay. We hear well in truly off the rails. This next question comes from the who writes to your Hank. I recently deleted Twitter. Congratulations due to reasons concerning my mental health. Yes. No, that's implied in the sentence. I recently deleted Twitter, but there are times when I miss it. Oh, EMMY all miss things that are bad for us, but we stopped them anyway. How do you feel about smoking cigarettes anyway? I was wondering if you could fill me in on everything I missing on Twitter. Also what's Lin Manuel Miranda up to these days Oscars and. Very good name specific sign off Lin. Manuel. Miranda is wonderful. He's very sweet. He doesn't. He doesn't seem to interact that much with Twitter except to say nice things on it for the most part, which is probably the right way to do it. What else are you missing? Boy, boy, I don't even know where to start. Their people are confused and frustrated. Yes. Amine EMMY, I would. I'd stay off. I'm sorry. I was trying to answer your question EMMY, but it required me to get on Twitter and now I've been sucked into the vortex having a little trouble paying attention. Yeah, litter. Literally, like you ask the question about Twitter, John, and are both. Like, what? What is it? I hate like, what'd you say? John? I didn't hear you. I hate the way Twitter makes me feel and I hate the way it makes me act and I hate the way it makes me interact, which is actually come to think of it, not dissimilar to how I felt about smoking cigarettes for the last eight years that I smoked cigarettes. There's a, here's, here's a little update. John from Hank did not hear anything said if he is so so very correct because I was looking at the Twitter feed for delete this which follows three people, delete this follows, Susie dent the linguist. Yup. And Hank green. The author of an obsolete remarkable thing that comes up September twenty fifth and is available for preorder now and. And we rate dogs of right, so that that Twitter feed, honestly, that's probably about what I'm looking for. I would argue that you could take Hank off of it. Might be a good choice. Honestly, I find a lot of Hank's tweets to be engaged in unhealthy ways with the feed. Honestly, if you go and look at my feet versus year feed recently, think maybe in the last twenty four hours, but I just deleted Twitter off my phone while we were having this conversation because. Emmys question made me realize that I think I'm done like I needed to quit smoking, and there were a lot of people who are like, hey, you know what you need to do quit smoking and I'd be like, yeah, no, I mean, I probably should. I recognize not great for me, but it's it. I'm quitting smoking. I need to quit smoking. Hank. This is ridiculous. Like anti be an adult about this. I quit smoking. I can quit this..
