"Lex Young homered in the eighth inning last night. He swings a line drive base hit to left field that scores Badir right behind him. Colton Wong long scores standing a two run single for Paul. The Young and the Cardinals lead 5 to 1 over the back. O fall. The young with the big hit yesterday to give the Cardinals a little breathing room. They were up 5 to 1, and they want it by the count. Of 9 to 1. Here's Paula turning point, and, you know, we're watching the game. Learning upon it just kind of do do our best to make place for our pitcher and cold and I have a chip on our shoulder. Try to make every play for our guys and you know we worked hard all offseason and even during the quarantine toe, keep our defense up and Basically stay locked in, you know a 60 game schedules, so we're landed all out there. I believe the good defense translates into good offense and they work hand in hand. If you're going well at the plate, you're even better in the field, And that is exactly what happened to Colton Wong. He's been great defensively throughout his career, but his offense is starting to come around and Over the last couple of years, and you see the confidence just oozed from him and you're seeing it from Paul, The young Paul. The young is going to be a very good player in this league for a long time. I don't know how great but I can tell you the time will tell. He has great mental. Ah, stability. I would say he's just has this You can sense it. He does not look too far in the past. It's all about what am I doing right now? And he doesn't play the what if game either. He's about concentrating on today and Paul. The Young is going to be a really good player in this game. Paul Goldschmidt is a good player in this game. He launched a homerun yesterday and the Cardinals were often running and they won the game 9 to 1. Over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Game three of this Siri's coming up at 1 15 There's a little bit of news around Major League baseball regarding Miami Marlins. We'll get to that story. Coming back after the break and then take you to pregame at 12 20 on Tom Ackerman Sports on a Sunday morning continues right after this. Home Depot has news that will come as great comfort.

So I think I knew a lot about that. Pretty only my entire family Soviet Union I was born in Soviet Union so sort of The World War Two has deep roots in the culture in The the suffering that the war brought the millions of people who died is in is in the music is in the literature and the culture. Would you think was the impact of the war? Broadly on our society. The war had many impact I think one of them. A beneficial impact is that it showed what racism and Authoritarian government can do and at least as far as the west was concerned. I think that meant that I grew up in an era in which There wasn't the kind of overt Racism Anti. Semitism that had existed for my parents in Europe. I was growing up in Australia And certainly that was clearly seen as something completely unacceptable There was also the fear of a further at break war. Which this time we expected would be nuclear because of the way the Second World War had ended.

"Off lex yesterday did not yeah you did it is while I was doing something you asked me exactly about that something and I thought are you spying on me right now because for years you've heard me joke of lex that I have I have either a drone watching her or we've been planted something in her years ago like that dinosaur in Jurassic Park or little chip yeah recently I've been joking that all that her home her home devices are spying on our own now so I'm sitting on the couch so I'll give my perspective in this accident some some of the couch and I am the scanning the inter webs for for stories looking for stuff for the shows and I come across a a story and a deadline Hollywood that said that the premiere of Perry Mason the reboot of Perry Mason on HBO had like record ratings it was just a lot to me yeah I was a huge hit for HBO so I texted him like all go do I I know looks like these old procedural shows like this I love that it attacks like since he's he's watched this because if she has we can put a review with the news of this these the ratings hi techs Alexa go Hey have you watched Perry Mason on HBO and what happened lex I was watching it as I got a text message I I am watching it right now yeah we text sometimes but the giving further creepiness yeah don't text each other a lot and we talk to each other for that we don't even for a day I mean you know right we don't so it's even weirder that I just happen to text her the millisecond she was what she all that was yeah that was trippy I thought Lou where is the where is the ha ha okay but yeah I I wonder if it was just yesterday you know Hey have a stance okay so what what is this for all the young ins they don't aren't familiar with Perry Mason what is this and did you like it most importantly yeah okay so Perry Mason he's a PI he it's set in the fifties and sixties the TV show and he it's usually you know they're busy solving a crime solving a problem something's happening and I've only watched maybe a handful of the original Perry Mason's I need her back that's another reason to get CBS all access yeah there has all the seasons are on there I mean I've always my dad like Perry Mason we we love the shows and so when the idea of Perry Mason coming to HBO as a younger Perry Mason during the nineteen thirties I thought okay we're gonna definitely check this out and a cut to the chase I loved it did you know I loved it it got me in the first forty five seconds now the reason that it is triggering for some people it can be it's gruesome it's a horrible crime that they are solving so you see a kind of the aftermath and then of course they go back to you know investigate what happened and all the different players so there's a lot of different moving parts as you get through the hour but right away I was like okay I'm in I got to know how this happened why this happened it's very fast moving you cannot fold laundry during the show because if you blink you'll miss something there's lots of bad language there's a lot of nudity also just you know that might be a deal breaker a positive or negative for people depending you don't watch is with your kids what I'm saying and then Matthew rice and I think it's less angry I read it reached okay Matthew Rees he plays the young Perry Mason every time I look at him I think John Ritter yes he does kind of look at John Ritter yeah but he is a fantastic and what I love about this version of Perry Mason is that they really show his faults B. humanize him he is he's in a he has a broken marriage she's got a Kitty doesn't see he has an alcohol problem so you see him as a person and not just like this grand figure without any faults and it reminds me of a few because I love Sherlock I'll watch anything Sherlock yeah and if you watched and liked elementary you will love this too because it's very similar in the tone and then the other thing that reminded me of his true detective not procedural in a sense like one order where there's one episode there is a crime they solve it within that hour this it's a lot on going investigation so throughout the season I don't know if they'll there might be some other crimes that they sell to but there's a common thread throughout these episodes I like solving I like that one thing I like an over arching on parole feeding through a season okay well and then you also just see how messed up the this system wise I mean I'm request now people are saying that still but even then just how they could pay off the corners they can just go in a little dead bodies and take evidence really really crazy so you see a lot of that and then the other thing too which is ironic that remind me of chefs of Sherlock and elementary is that because Robert Downey junior he played Sherlock in a movie yeah he is one of the executive producers of this yes so that was fun to see his name in the title still but I I'm in I and I think that you guys will like it too it's dark and gruesome so if you're not really into that right now if you're looking for more like we are I or you know speaking shows this isn't for you but I really enjoyed it I need that you said the queer eye in baking skills because I watch a lot of drag race and also baking chosen and the M. C. this weekend goes if there could just be a gay baking show set in Britain for you all that we know he's make it happen a baking homo does yeah Delhi home I was minding my twenties stick yeah the eight I'm going to lecture on HBO you guys check it out I I think in the first minute at least you'll go wall and you'll know whether you're in or you're out again what year does this take place in nineteen thirty two okay I'm I'm John younger Perry Mason I'm down for this I'm I'm I'm down I got Steve Coll water with me seven dot twenty six when we return we're gonna do some would you rather I.

"Yet. But anyway, if that community was GONNA, make an Agi. Probably one way they would do it was you know take twenty five different neural models. Architecture in different ways, maybe resembling different parts of the brain pays Ganglia model cerebellar Maga. Thomas Magical few hip few hippocampus models. Number of different models, representing parts of the CORTEX. Take all of these and then. Wire them together to to to CO train learn them together like that. That would be. An approach to creating an an Gi one could implement something like that efficiently on top of our, our true Agi like open cockatoo. Porno. wants. It exists although obviously Google has has their own highly efficient implementation architecture so. I think that's a decent way to build edgy I was very interested in that in the mid nineties but. I mean the knowledge about how the brain works sort of pissed me off like it wasn't. It wasn't like you know in the hippocampus you have these concept neurons like the so called grandmother Neuron whichever one left it's actually they're like I have some lex Friedman neurons fire differentially when I when I see you and that when I see any other person. Yeah. So how how did these let's Friedman neurons? How do they coordinate with distributed representations of lex Friedman I have in my cortex There's some back and forth, Cortex and hippocampus that lets these. Representations in hippocampus Corley and cooperate with the distributed representations in cortex. This probably has to do with how the brain does it version of abstraction and quantify logic like you can have a single near in the hippocampus. The activates a whole distribute activation pattern in in cortex. Well, this, this may be how the brain does civilization and abstraction as in in functional programming is something, but we can't measure like we. We don't have enough electrodes stuck between the the CORTEX and the and the hippocampus in any known experiment to measure it. So I got I got frustrated with that direction not because it's impossible which Donna stand enough yet..

"I have to say after all the grueling twenty hours of scratching the weekend. We're probably about eighty percent of the way there, so I consider myself quite competent scratch developer now.

Full You know absolutely dominating the the wind. You Know Gaming Gaming Bash challenge last. Yea, remarks, text based game with elements was pretty good. It, was that game was cooled pig by the way Joe. I suppose the thing is is that my daughter's just start just started sort of embraced grant. She's at that age where scratches a thing this on the curriculum at school, and we're doing homeschooling right now on I get to pick up the computing part of that, or at least my wife has been picking helping conjunction with Code Club the streaming from our local library and but my daughter having not shown any interesting scratch or computers until very recently now absolutely loves the and every span moment she wants to be doing scratch and over the last six weeks, or so has literally created hundreds of scratch projects. So she's got into remixing other people's stuff. So you know in scratch you can log in. Find it interesting project, and then tinker with it, and she's been doing that I wanted to break that cycle a little bit and show her that she could create her own things, so given that she helped me make an alien attack. I thought let's reimagined that game in scratch. Cooking already understood it a new what we were trying to do that. So that's what? What we've been working on actually have to say the scratch version very good very playable right now is available as a snap not yet, but I. Did discover earlier today that there is a project code scratcher Prater, which is a scratch interpreted, compile scratch into binary his sire. If I can get that, and that is a snap, but if I can compile this game into a snap them finally, maybe and see alien untangle be available as a snap well. Right let's show. And now it's time for the community news and I up in the Community News Mint has announced. It's going to break chromium in apt. So, this was. A follow on from some comments that the main project made about. Snaps Awhile bike some criticisms they had about how it removes control. I think criticisms were mainly about how it removes control from district makers I'm not sure that I agree with most their point, spout removing control from the uses. But what they've decided to do is make so that. Won't be able to install snappy as a result of installing another package. And because in a boon to which lex mint is based on chromium is installed as a snap. and. Upgrades from previous versions. We might have been as Deb by installing a snap with the package. It now means that chromium white be able to be installed throughout. So have been actually broken kramer an APP. It doesn't sound like a broken chromium. Well according to their monthy news post, it says that they are deliberately breaking it so that if you try and instill Carmen via apt. It will just tell you why it's broken, and that is because instead of insulting. Stop the and pulling down the snap of it. They're blocking that by default. You will then be able to manually install snap day and then snap install chrome if you want to, but they are kind of making a point here kind of drawing a line in the sand, saying we don't agree with this, and so we're going to try and Bob. This barrier to educate people about it, okay. I was quite surprised when I read this today.

"How well it fit together? It could have been a confusing mishmash but certainly worked for me though. I still don't understand how the monitor made that deal with lex to get Lena back with memory. Whatever I guess For licks being back in in this universe wouldn't have been as much fun without Lena torture while they needed to maintain Lena knowing because of the reasons in the previous season because it was so bad like they can't reproduce that knife twist too many times so they needed that knife twist to be remembered. Yeah Yeah but it took me a moment. Thank we had. This isn't Hopi because hope you've never existed. Oh and I missed one. By the way that LEX also was the person behind Richards. Bates Richards has his control and hacking of city and platinum to do the thing to go after his wife's lover and all that was also something like stood just so much I really enjoy the intricacy of lex setting everything so that other people would be at each other's throats instead of him just undermining people directly. He's really got set up now. They all want to eliminate each other and if he wants being impatient to jumping the game he would be really will set up to just watch each other. Destroy each other in any could pick up all the pieces Yes but exactly exactly to the second almost halfway through this episode. We get that point where Lena goes and talks to Kara in an act of sympathy and it is a very nice scene and it sort of halfway through the episode. Even the second time watching it I looked at the time saying I only halfway through this episode because so much has happened. And that is the turning point where it all starts to break. Yeah but then later we get to the point where supergirl his using. Murray adds to to try and get to Leviathan and Lena realizes that once again realizes the super bowl is of a hypocrite. And that's more of a problem. This is yet again. Hey Look Lena's being manipulated by LEX and is therefore turning on people who care for her. I found that just hard to watch is the only part of the episode. I had difficulty with just because I just find it so hard to watch. Lena being manipulated and maybe even car could said. I'm only here because Lex told me to. There's these windows where this is all. Just napkin nations of LAX Napier Leading Lena. And it's sad to see Lena. React so negatively and take everything so personally that supergirl is using myriad just to stop. Lena's experiments and that's how Lena's going to perceive it as being you know supergirl acting against her Lena instead of supergirl trying to stop people from having their brains fried yet and this also didn't work as well for me for two reasons one because leaner had the line that you know she could think four other ways to find people other than using there yet. Where you know. I thought stabbed it would make more sense for counter. Say Okay name them and I'll stop doing this and use whatever you say and that didn't make sense for me there and also again. Everson's Lena appear on the show I soul her as the smartest person including when you have her legs having things. She's quite as hubristic and narcissistic as and so especially if we think of her having grown up around Lex I my read on her is that she would kind of anticipate his schemes. And that's you know she would probably be once that ahead so it doesn't quite fit the characterization that she would be so easily pulled around by LEX. It is probably our favorite topic on the podcast being a little disappointed that the raiders are making Lena so obviously easily manipulated. It is a challenge. It does not feel right really for what Lena was like. For the first couple of seasons and It just makes lex a more powerful character unnecessarily maybe have difficulty getting behind it. They're doing very well but it's still just a bit of a pity. It is a pity I am trying to think of it as LEX having grown up in a superior position for so long that he just has all of Lena's buttons mapped out completely even in the new universe that they find themselves but yeah hit hit his disappointing. We had been hoping for a long time that Lena would wake up and smell the coffee but it doesn't look like they're heading that way. It's also a missed opportunity in the way because it would be interesting to have someone who is by every means Lexus intellectual equal so you can see how he does against someone who was just as smart as he is but has a difference that you know. She isn't quite as proud then. Patty and and tries to empathize with people. I thought that would be actually quite an interesting contrast if they could sort of build on US intelligence and have her as his foil in a way but I guess. We're not going to see in that anytime soon. Lena is coming. It's coming it hasn't well. I hope you're right. It's interesting that they brought up the. You're assuming that I'm a villain conversation yet again. I would just about rather see Lena. Go full villain than senior. Be The consistent dupe back before lex became a dominant batty for this season. I thought that was what was going to happen that we were going to get a Lena. That is in direct conflict with supergirl girl and she would be the bat be the body right but she would be doing it for interesting reasons instead of the card born villains that we often get. Yeah yeah still feeling a little disappointment over how treatment of Lena his going it will get there. I've believe have V. I do like that. We then get another scene with Lillian. Where lex misses the opposite saw and and and and I really quite like how this conversation goes again. Lillian is obviously so in the right but I like how the miss that let Lexus. Making obviously is not just that he's slipping back into do vendetta. But there's there's a lot of things that lexus missing here and it. It's it's a nice metaphor. Yeah that was a fun scene. I guess just again illustrates just how Petty Lexus. I mean you know why. Why should he care so much that you know Lena and super girlfriends again again? Lillian very rightfully pointed out especially like how apparently for the epitome of friendship is playing pictionary. That was fun again because we get so also we we we see Lexin his intellectual superior. I'm explaining my master plan to you moments and here. We see that you know he. He he still has These sort of petty and obsessive moments of emotion to be fair. The show really likes game night and red wine. Yeah I thought it was funny because a pretty sure that we have actually seen them playing pictionary. If Not Lena with the group we've seen game night doing it but I don't know whether lex actually knows that if he was just pulling a you know a game out at random to make fun of while he has had eve doing a spying on them. So so really. Let's assume lex knows everything? Okay this is a world where LEX has an amazing network of data because Lex News. The future at least the previous future and therefore he has a huge amount of information. Such that this is. This is going to be lex on the top of his game because he has so much for knowledge as to what's going on and he just doesn't know how he's going to screw it up because he knows it. Whatever else was going to do until he acts. Yeah it'll be interesting to see. What the setup for the finale and how again we get to see lex sort of trip over his own sense of ego and intelligence well. I think it's safe to say that evil turn on him and it is certainly possible that if Lena learns enough of the details as to how LEX has been manipulating her Lena might turn to. I don't know if they'll do that this season. But that would certainly be my hope so on the end when LEX was basking in. I did it my way and then said Oh screw it on went to the fortress of solitude was he just being impatient ten advancing his plan or did he just want to stop the whole over super girls sanctuary or or was. It was a little hard watching Lena. Take the watch. Because of course he's going to track where the portal goes again. It seems like a ridiculously easy manipulation. That she won't tell them where to go but she'll happily go there with some device you just gave her. I think he just wanted to be there to be there. It's hard to say exactly how the plan will go. It's still hard to quite understand. The Max headroom equations being used to make immortals mortal to try and defeat Leviathan because there are multiple fights that have to happen. And they're all GonNa Kinda happen at the same time and we still don't lean is going to turn her mind control on and there's also that scene lexus playing with two mice and he picks up one most and the other mouse vibrates and then poofs and. I don't know if we actually have any idea why that happened. I don't know why it happened. It made me think. Back to Lena's known nutter experiments were she was trying to make creatures placid and one of them is it. Had it had that feeling? Yeah I didn't get what the point of the mice was item. I don't know does like sexually care about none. The Cherry thought it was he was just using the. Do No harm thing as another lever to manipulate Lina. I do not know baby. That's the representation of the using the mortality code. Maybe there's some connection there. Because that's the technology he was playing with that most going poof is pretty unexplained so we will have to see how that looks in the leader episodes of the season speaking of which has anyone seen any recent articles about what's happening with the rest of the season. No the only thing I read is that again that they might not have the originally planned final episode so we might be one episode short in the season. Certainly the next few weeks are currently lined up with episodes. So time will tell but I'm sure they will. They will do the right thing and they will certainly get back to filming as soon as they can. I wonder whether or not we're going to see some shows. Having episodes that clearly reflect the changes of rules that the productions are going to be under and we might get some very strange episodes as a function of that episode where people are just calling each other instead of getting into the same room. I'm sure a lot of TV shows are going to have zoom episodes. Because how could they not? I mean super go have everyone on different planets and then so it every single be one acts and then just all green screen and hopefully they'll have nicer Greens tweets and they had for this episode. Ya Not sure. If that's a good idea with their budget some shows I expect. We'll just delay That'll be the most common but I'm sure some shows are going to play with doing other things looking at an article from CPR DOT com. Says it's not written quite clearly for either the finale or the penultimate episode will be on May Seventeen..
"lex" Discussed on TeeVee
"After a long hiatus is his you and we'd love to hear what you think of the season so far. Yeah thanks for having me back. I finally caught up with all the episodes. This is kind of a fun season so far. I at first not like the city in north plot. Line quite as much but this has become quite enjoyable. It's nice to see Julie Gonzalez. I saw her on Veronica Mars and it's nice to see her on TV again. Jon Cryer is having a lot of fun playing lex Luther. He's he's very good villain so follow so definitely a nice change after rain. So yeah it's been actually a pretty solid season thus far. Well if you didn't entirely like the first part of the season it's okay because the universe doesn't exist anymore. Okay well if everyone's ready. Let's dive into the specific episode. The David can you give us a recap and remind us what happened. Most of this episode is a recap. We see post crisis earth prime from Lexus point-of-view Lex uses his memory from Earth. Thirty eight future knowledge from Wins Legion ship and good advice from Earth. Prime's Lillian to turn even to a double agent create the Obsidian Platinum Coma Bug and have eve stop it from getting fixed. Give amy the gauntlets to attack. Obsidian North Control Williams tax. Kill Margo and get closer to Leviathan. But when Lena Shows Kara some sympathy we see Lexus. Greatest weakness as he has eve. Kill Alex and Cars Dad manipulate the Lena to hate? Kara again talks Germany into trying to kill supergirl and brutally betrays. Eve's love okay. He would have probably done that anyway. His crypt Tony and hating vindictiveness. Going to to his downfall I'd say oh and mcgann shows up to help deal with the sun eater. He'll is a very active episode but a lot of it was just recapitulating things from his point of view but I enjoyed it. A few more things turned out to be. Lexus fault than I had actually thought they were. That is the thing that amazed me. The most in this episode is not only were all of the things that we figure lex probably did LEX did them all the things. We didn't think lex. Did he also did those? 'cause we never assumed that he was actually at fault for all of the coma. Bugs and bugs getting fixed and all of that stuff but it was also lacks and that blew me away. For being a twenty five percent clip show With gratuitous use of previous episode content in Windows. I loved this episode and this was a Melissa Benoist. First Time Directing. I think I'm just really was happy with this episode. It is kind of ridiculous but it was just. I really enjoyed tell everything was woven together but of course for me I love. This happened months and months ago so it was like. Oh Yeah that happened for you. Allen seeing everything pretty much fresh. How did it all floating flow for you? It flowed pretty well agree. It's very well stitched together and yesterday was mostly a and. I know that sometimes shows do that as kind of Philip. I didn't feel like it here because and again I will say this is elevated so much by John. Cryer have so much fun playing lex Luther. I think it's actually interesting. How like when he's playing lex trying to be manipulative. He seems both convincing. But also it's transparently very fake. What he's doing and he managed to play that very well. So that was that was fun and again. The only thing that he was really lacking wasn't mustache to twirl. I did enjoy the hallway with the magazine covers all with his head and his head looks extra big in those covers but no. I thought I thought this was great. It really allowed Jon Cryer to showcase his acting and I would assume that has to be why lex is so prominent in this. Because he's a good villain but he's written well and you know the accurate having a genuine great time playing him. He's had a strong presence through the season but of course nothing like tonight where it was all about him. My wife reminded me I have to say I still have difficulty seeing duckie from pretty in pink. Let's see the first movie I ever saw him was hiding out but everything about his performance in this. I think was really good all. I have an issue that we will get to go through the episode with Lena as we often do but what I really liked in just as initial scenes as we see sort of the first day post crisis is we see this conversation between LEX and his mother but as the earth prime mother and it's sort of what the luther could do if they didn't spend all their time fighting crypto neons and she's on the other side of that and this conversation which is what leads to so much success and is beautifully sets up that first half of this episode of lex making progress and being off his awesome evil. Self yes absolutely. I really really enjoyed Lillian. In this episode. She was pretty awesome. She was on point. She was looking at the larger picture all the time and she managed to get Lex to see at least for a little while that he had been focusing on the wrong things she was calm and controlled whereas you know she had been common control but hiding that was a lid over a bubbling rage. For here it just seems to be calm and controlled trying to consolidate power right but not boring just because she likes that. Range did not make her boring. She was still quite fun to watch. Joe Seals like a more powerful in great. I you know this Lynn. Luther loves pink apparently and so she has a very nice outfit to match decor in office and I also liked how there was such a strong contrast between her and lex lacks someone who considers himself sort of this rational super genius and here the contrast between what Lily and was saying was saying really points. Out HOW IRRATIONAL LEXUS? Hatred and obsession with Crypto neans? Is I liked her line. In this planet Luther are cool. Cool-headed it also is a strong contrast between LEX partnering up with Brainy Because Brainy again is the epitome of cool headed logic. And it shows that you know for all of how lex fancies himself this sort of above it all rational genius. He really is. You know just patty and obsessive just in a very particular way and yes. I think that that is probably what will become his eventual downfall. I like the initial line when Louis serving tea not poisoned this time. I don't think and LEC says no sugar she responds. That's my boy. I assume they're just making it very clear that the Lutherans are not sweet people. I agree that they clearly know in this. Show that LEX. Greatest weakness is exactly as Lillian says his inferiority complex over a pair of hokey heroes and blue tights. And that is it right well. His greatest notice is himself. You know not only his obsession over fee crip Tony. But also the total league gratuitous tearing down of Eve before. He was done with her when she told him you know that she wanted them to be a cup. Hope he could have put her off much more easily. He could have just stopped after saying you know. I can't let myself be distracted this time but now he had to show her that he wasn't saving his her mother he was threatening her instead and over. By the way I set you up to be the killer of supergirl stand in and he had been manipulating her perfectly. Well through promise of or implication of future rewards and he just threw it all a winning. I don't know if he just enjoyed showing her the knife. And then twisting in her or if he has some kind of fear reaction to the threat of intimacy that made him want to squash her. I think this is back to his inferiority complex. He failed in the other world with her so he has to not only win instead of being beaten by her like that but he has to put it in her face. Okay so you're saying IT'S REVENGE FOR THIRTY EIGHT. Eve's working for Leviathan after all but that was a betrayal of Lena. Wasn't it not a betrayal of LEX? She was working with him to. I guess he betrayed him to. I don't even know if I consider it a revenge. I mean certainly. That's valid but I I think it's more of a externalisation That he needs to be able to tell someone Haha. I beat you this time. He just can't hold back. He needs to be on top and he needs people to know that he's on top and this is going to be disastrous for him. It is a horribly mean and vindictive thing to do and it will bite him. Yeah the first time Alex or Kara. Or even William Day puts pressure on her She's going have a huge motivation. To tell all one cast herself on their mercy. Ask for someone to save her. All or she'll just kill lex. We're that to this. Lots of options. The writers have a world of options. Yeah though if we go I think what this will be the royalists reason for a minute. I believe they're taking the lost. The finale off of the season and I think I was watching interview with Jon. Cryer on entertainment weekly where he suggests that it might be. Then that's LEX will not see his downfall in this season if they take the loss episode off bigger havoc. That hasn't they haven't completed all of it. Yeah so for briefly he might end up on top and so then the next season comes back then would be an interesting way to go lakewood. Netflix does two seasons. I will simply draw the seasons where I see fit. I WILL. Maybe just call the next episode. The season whatever as long as he falls. I'm happy. Yeah it's funny Leaving leaving lex you know on top would be different on fun. It's also an interesting contrast. Supergirl seemed particularly cartoony. They were really really hamming. It up with the sun eater and she seemed very you know arms akimbo hands on to Sing Haha. And and the way that mcgahn John Supergirl as though you know totally thrilled that she would show her. No I suppose Melissa Benoist meant to come off as kind of inflated that way while they're flying around in space fighting monsters wants to eat. The Sun deserve a little self congratulations. I might just cut them a bit of slack for the reality of this show frequently tries to punch above. Its belt so I think they maybe they bit off a little more than they could chew but hey they had fun doing it speaking effects though do you think it was a deliberate choice to make the backgrounds for Alexis World Tour. Look Extra Faith. You were so fake looking like. I've seen better zoom backgrounds than that it might have just been not worth their time to try and perfectly colored graded or get lighting working or they just wanted to make feel as fake as Lexus. Presentation was like. Maybe there's a reason for it but yeah it just looked really bad. I mean I guess it could be just another subtle hit at obsidian but I don't think any of the viewers need to be convinced by this time that Obsidian is a bad idea true obsidian vr. Whatever they call some of the Earlier in this show also cleared up tons of little things that were bugging me before like when we first see. Alina being asleep when LEX WAKES UP. He drugs her and keeps her unconscious for some chunk of the day. And I remember back in the podcast where we're discussing. Why does Lena suddenly wake up halfway through the episode and this episode explains it like so much of this episode is so tight for what they're trying to pull off? It is kind of shocking that supergirl that is generally such a fun and relatively lightly. Plotted show is doing multiple of these deep. Let's roll back and move forward and show different aspects of the plot and end up in this place where it's really complicated like we're being introduced to eve but no. This isn't the eve we are used to. This is an e from Earth. Prime this ill Lillian from Earth. Prime's after member which characters or from which universe to understand the motivations like this is a remarkably complicated episode and I was just impressed..
"lex" Discussed on Krypton Report: The Supergirl Podcast
"And and he does it in like such an intelligent and manipulative way. You know I mean dressing up and playing a bartender. How many times in like the comics have we seen lex luther disguised as somebody else? It's you know I mean act in in the death of Superman. When he's under house arrest he he leaves his building disguised. This somebody will leaves leave somebody with his with his collar with his his Ankle Monitor on at at his building at his home. I mean one of the this is one of the the best written and best acted versions of LEX. Luther that's been onscreen really I'm better you can say about it because you're absolutely right and that's why I loved it like you know. Even when he confronts Jammie Gamay yes she thought I was. When did her real name get like revealed like because he even says it earlier? In the episode. She's a Guinea won't even me on the ship and I was like Okay House. I remember her name Gate But say either through even this something. We don't recall because of the gap. I think it's the latter. But you know she. She comes and LEX is like talking to her and confronted and trying to get this massive giant VR everyone jumps in Vr at the same time to escape something and she turns into like a metal monster that reminded me of the Cyborg from three say that she looked she. Looks like the the robot the side work from Superman three and my exact same thought and so when lex releases the sunny near it causes everyone to freak out and panics they all like into. Dvr We see people all around the world kind of like just going into VR to escape the reality and Jason News. He jumped off of a which is funny to see Jason. Mewes armor has a farmer he jumps off says some kind of Weird Line. I forget what he said but then he looks at his phone or something and it says like emergency reality escape or something not exactly sure the exact wording of it off hand but I was like. Oh that's crazy like in case of an emergency. You know escape. Dvr mean what's going to happen if you die if your body gets killed right you get Cape Ann Vr. You can't physically do anything so in case of emergency you're just stuck. You're screwed your right and that's what. I thought was interesting. Is You know so lakes has that. And then so all. That's going on to prove his point. Mcgann shows back up because he said about the myriad and hugh waves so it was nice to see him again again. I felt the same and then super grocers up to help mcgann John. Stop the slum. They're wearing lex. Oh suit which is ironic. Well the interesting thing we see mcgann again so John is wearing that that marsh invest or whatever as as David Harewood earlier in the earlier portion of this episode and then later on after the sun eater comes out and mcgann shows up. They're both wearing the new style costume and get David Harewood as himself. I believe in the new style costume. That's very nice. I must have missed that but yeah I I really light sing the different points of view on Lex and then of course the episode basically ends where it started with lex being the hero in saving all those people we find out that legs is the one who let William get the clues piece. It altogether and lex. You know had super bowl use the myriad for the q waves to find the missing people just to. Piss off Lena and he calls his mom says I did my way and was a nice little refrain of the music of my way. Which is you know how he did it in season. Four.
"lex" Discussed on Krypton Report: The Supergirl Podcast
"Does. The what LEX does he know he says. No no no. She's like Mr Luther. They call me. Tom Com EULEX. You know and then he talks about how these guards protecting your mother. So that Leviathan won't bother them. I mean he just. He gets her on his side. Hook line and sinker. Yeah he in this episode like he knows how everyone's GonNa react. He knows when and where and he's waiting for and he's waiting for people to do what he expects to take his next step like he in this episode. He is extremely intelligent conniving manipulating and just evil when when he finally reveals in the end like. I don't love you I used you. You Killed Super Girls Dad. Oh I've yes. So he tells either he in no kinda getting ahead of myself. Oh you're fine. Intel's Eve located the man that murdered her father and it's a picture of Jeremiah Danvers. And he tells her he she's. I didn't think I had to kill for Leviathan. You don't have to but this is for you to eve is the one that killed Jeremiah. Yeah which I'm glad they. I'm glad they tied it into the plot instead of basically just writing him off. They tied it into a masterful plot for the for the season. I thought that was great. Because then they go back and at the end like when when she lectures up at home. And she's cooking and he's except BEF- Wellington she's I guess for us to be is a couple. He's a couple. I've been trying to tell you silly I love you. Of course you do then He. That's when he starts breaking down everything that he has done and then that's when he pulls out and we find out that Guards that are guarding her. Mom are actually there as Lexus. Henchman that hell have her mom murdered. If Eve tries to say anything he has video footage of her burdening Jeremiah. That I never took the time to figure out who killed your debt. You just murdered supergirl stat. Because I didn't even look into it. I didn't even bother looking into it. And he breaks it down and she is like Europe. You're you're worse than vice music. No better like and I mean it. Just is so dastardly. Everything that he's doing it's great for the care because he plays you know. He knew about the back door problem. In Up City upsetting heck he knew about the guy who wanted to imprison the other guy because of his wife. He helped him. He was a bartender. The help push him over the edge. That was crazy. Long hair like cowboy almost shirt whatever. He was worried so he made sure the he was involved and nobody was paying attention to him. And that's what Lex Luther does. That's why he's so dangerous. I love how they gave him a disguise in this like. Yeah he yeah. He's got all these people on his payroll to do whatever he wants whether because of money or because of black male or whatever it is but he gets his hands dirty.
"lex" Discussed on Krypton Report: The Supergirl Podcast
"Knew were there you know. Yeah I mean the only things that they show the things that they show from the past where only glimpses they didn't. They didn't spend time on on things that have that happened. Previously Bay show what had happened. They show you who. And what what LEX. An how lexus hand was involved. But the entire episode is is unraveling Lexus plan throughout the entire three months. So we've you know we see that Lexi the we got the party where he's what's Leviathan wasn't the one behind Leviathan. Finding them out. He goes to the ship. It's nice to actually expand on that because when he goes what's Leviathan back post-crisis he. That's basically like how it ended. I wasn't that episode how it ended like what's Leviathan. And that was it well in this. They expand on that. Lena starts talking to start telling him what it is telling him. That Eve was playing him and all that kind of stuff insist so that was pretty cool. So speaking of Eve lex gets all the associated with people who are working with the Leviathan. He goes in key targets eve basically because he shows up and semi rescues her from having to g Leviathans dirty work and killed him and we learned that somebody murdered Eve's father and that worked for Leviathan. They're holding that over her and you let's face it comes in and rescue and we see these different glimpses of every time something happens. Where e thanks? She's kind of figuring out where Lexus doing cushal all. Do you want me to do this to tell them. He's like no no. Don't this is what's going to happen. They're gonNA have this issue. This is GonNa happen part and then I'll come in and do this and LEX.

"Victim's bodies as Cara and mcgann meet with day. They learn lex rescued. Everyone eliminated Margot Gemini Confronts Lex but he persuades her to focus leviathans wrath on supergirl following a discussion with his mother. Lex Uses Lena's transpotation. Watch to enter the fortress of solitude retile. Several called LEX is a backstabbing Mojo. Pretty much I mean I mean this is just proves saying this is how dark lexus where he cares about a why he cares about because first of all will check up here it starts now another this is Melissa Benoist directorial debut. And so that's all yes and she did an amazing job. I actually also talking about actors so I don't know if you ever watch vampire. Diaries Jillian I watched like the first two or three seasons and then it just. It got stupid but Paul Wesley who was on that show who was also Lucas. Luther just recently directed an episode of Bat woman and it was probably one of the best directed episodes of that series in this. I was very impressed so I say that just to say like. I was very impressed with what she brought to the table. From a directing point of view and I thoroughly enjoyed that. Now that's one thing to take. Note is having a great episode for her to direct because supergirl is absent a majority of the film of the episodes. Yeah the majority of supergirl that you see in. This episode is Stuff from the past because it goes from day one of post crisis and as it continued is it all unravels. Lexus plan all the way through ninety days post crisis. And so we've seen already. There's a little bit of a good Georgia. Which is yeah which is nice. So lex wakes up in his room and it's post crisis and without the delay probably would have been pretty close to being spot on 'cause this this would have happened back in this. This episode would have happened back in April three months after post crisis after the after the final episode of crisis I infinite hurts and you know exit wakes up to his Butler and you know. He's walking around magazine covers and everything he's on how he's being praised and being honored and how we find out that. Lena is their sleep on his couch. Which was like really cool just to. Kinda see things that we didn't see but we.
Cured Trout with Gsli Matt
"Name is. I'm shift from Iceland's run to restaurants in Iceland skull and Reykjavik the capital city and then in which is located on a tiny island on the south coast of Iceland called Westman Islands. I'M GONNA share a recipe with you. It's a cute trout similar to Colombo lex methods but using trout and standard Salman and using a little bit different herbs. So what I like to use instead of the traditional until is to use really good salt and Arctic time. Arctic Time Her. That is hard to find. It's only grossing in Iceland Greenland and the Faroe Islands but the flavor notes are almost like a lemon thyme mixed with lavender's and I've actually tried to do with those herbs instead and comes out really good as well so they can be substituted instead of Dr Time from softer which is sustainable cease. Company is to them and they have different flavor mixtures and one of them is Arctic time the recipe itself. Kosher three parts she sold with this Arctic time and one part raw sugar and for every fillet says the health lemon. The recipe is simple. So you have fillets of crowds. You just make sure it's completely debunked and take off the excess fat that is on then you take the fillet and you great health lemon over and then just covered slightly with a mixture of sugar and salt time. Just have to make sure it's completely covered. Keep it covered for eight hours if the phillies really. You're using Salman's of trout. It needs to stay up it longer. Then you just basically scrape off the salt and put it in the cooler and especially if you can put it on the cooling rack and under the fan inside the cooler that way it air dries pits and makes the texture of the cure trout. A little bit better so basically the time to make it as little more than one day after that the texture of the face gets a little more tense. And when you cut it down you can use it on act benedict on just grill toast or even just on its own with. Maybe a little bit site source of homeless. That is grated into either yogurt or cream. It's really simple recipe to make but it's really delicate than lights. I hope you enjoy
These 5 Tips Will Increase Your CTR
"To another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about five tips that will increase your C. T. R. That is your click through rate. In this case we are talking about. Click the rate from I think we're talking about overall right organically and paid correct. Yes mainly organic funny enough yet. You have a lot of data on this because Click flow. But yeah we're mainly talking about organic click throughs. I've done a lot of tests on this funding using your software. You have a lot of data because you just have so many users. So why don't you go first Let's crank through five tips. That will help. People get results litter down less than thirty days. I'll make mine stupidly simple. So when you're looking at a Google search result page a lot of people whenever they're writing content. Let's say the New Year hits this year in Twenty Twenty Years Twenty Twenty. One people often forget to change the date. Now when you change a date under title from Two Thousand Nineteen Twenty twenty or just changes to the right year. Your click the rate. Actually chumps fifty to one hundred fifty percent. That's across the board based on data that we've seen with click flow so changed. It's another thing that works. Really well as vocal curiosity or allow matchy backup one more step so one thing. We didn't cover at the beginning of this podcast. Episode is the reason you want higher. Click the races. Let's say you go to Google. Do a search and a thousand other people do the same. Search that you did. If everyone clicks on the secondly instead of the first listing it tells Google the second one's more relevant and it pushes them up in the rankings over time so in theory you want more people to Click on your titan other words. You WANNA appeal them. You know him by appealing to them. And getting more clicks. It will help you rank higher than your competition over time. The air gave the first tip of adding the year at the end of your title tag. The second from me is evoked curiosity. Good example of this is like the seven benefits of green tea. Number six will shock. You put number six shock you in parentheses so doing little things like that. What we found is people like wait. What's number six? The click through Lonzo skimmed the six one and if they like it though backup read the rest of the post and then you know finish it all off but the point. I'm trying to make is voting curiosity. It is a great way to get people to click through. Yeah I think I'll give bonus tip to that one. I think it's really important for people to understand copywriting. I think Neil night we can agree. Some of the smartest people we know. The best entrepreneurs are exceptional copywriters and copywriting a part of it is persuasion and understanding what drives people understanding what people are interested in the more. You can improve at that the better so I recommend reading two books. One is called breakthrough advertising. And you can actually buy a real copy of that now. I think you pay like one hundred twenty five bucks. You combine the letters an look if you're crafty. I'm sure you can find. Pdf's for both of them. It's not that hard to find the. Pdf's leave it at that and then number three for me would be thinking about how you can do on surp- Seo's mean exactly so surp- is search engine result page and what's going on right now is. Google is occupying more and more of the clicks. Meaning that if you live on a search result page over. Fifty percent of people will not click through to your website. So what you can do is whether you're let's say you rank zero so you had the rich snippet with. Let's say you have like how to tie tie. You have like you know. Fourteen tips right there and people can see it right on the search result page. What you should be doing there is you'd be thinking about okay. How can that brand my website in there or in one of those fourteen tips? How can I entice them to click through site? Because if they don't click there. I'm losing that traffic. I can't retarget those people I can't collect the email I do a lot of different things right. So you've got to do everything in your power to not only add value but somehow brand yourself a little bit. So you're doing as much as you can to defend against Google. Taking more. And more of those clicks off number four. One thing that you can end up doing that. We're not seeing a lot of people do is using Faq Schema markup you start using Faq scheme markup on your site right and efficacy Skua Markup funny enough draws more attention to your surp- result if you're number one a lot of times you see less. Click throughs but if you're lower on the page you'll start seeing a boost in placements. You wouldn't get as many from what we've seen if you didn't have it but by having it you draw more attention in a muzy rankings up so if you're number one you do at UC less clicks but if you're lower on the page at it you'll go higher up and you'll start getting mark Lex Yup and then the final thing. I'll say this is a little more related to. Let's say you're doing facebook or Google ads. You WanNa be thinking about okay. How often are you gonna change things up so what I mean by that? So facebook for example. If you keep showing the same ad over and over and over ad fatigue is gonNA kick in very quickly. So you got to think about how you can when you're making new ads. Maybe make a whole batch of like five ten or fifteen of them and just constantly rotate them on. Maybe every two weeks every three weeks or making new batches because that's going to constantly keep your click the rate up if you're not keeping things fresh similar to how you would with. Seo and you're not aligning with the times changing the messaging and understanding what people what then ultimately you click. The rate's GonNa drop and then what's going to happen especially during paid. Your costs are going to increase because click the rate goes hired in Walden. Cpa's also higher as well right
How the Crisis Could Embolden Big Tech
"This week. Microsoft Apple Amazon Alphabet and facebook all reported their quarterly earnings typically investors view. These numbers as a way to measure how companies doing and the prospect of money to be made in the future but with the economy in disarray. These numbers tell pretty singular story yes things have slowed but they're nowhere near as dire as what other industries are seeing. Do you think these tech companies view earnings right now as as a one off you know just sort of a singular news event or are they something that can tell a broader story about where the companies are now in time. I think they're probably not beating their chests from what I've talked to people inside the companies. There is caution because nobody knows when the bottom is gonNA fall out. No one knows what's going to happen to the economy in on that creates anxiety for companies like Google and facebook that make all their money from advertising and the big advertisers are the brick and mortar world. You know the department stores. Even though they're failing the travel industry will there? That's tanking but at the same time like I'm unlinked in job alerts for Google and they're adding thirty jobs a day and facebook saying it's GonNa hire ten thousand people well if you're working at that kind of company are you gonNa feel versus anywhere else in America right now. Well that's the weird irony and you wrote about this saying that the pandemic is sort of a once in a lifetime opportunity for these companies. What are the I? Guess the specifics of that why they are able to do things like hire ten thousand people if your facebook well for one goes back to the cash reserve that they're sitting on Microsoft alone. I think is worth one point three trillion dollars to give some perspective that is bigger than the economy of forty seven. Us states these companies have just amassed the level at which they have profited since the great recession is just. It's really profound. You Know Amazon. Could buy all boutique retailers in the US right now if they wanted to so they're sitting on all this cash so they have a fallback. I mean look at Boeing. It's a major. Us company they're cutting tens of thousands of jobs. That says that. Tekken away in a class of by itself when you look at other major American companies and how they're faring. It's not just the mom and pop. Businesses that are laying off people. It's major American companies. That don't have the cash runway to withstand a crisis. These enormous cash reserves held by just a few big tech companies are the result of years of growth. Elizabeth says if you trace these reserves back to their source. The story begins during the last economic crisis in two thousand eight during the great recession the whole economy the whole market took its lex but what happened afterwards is very interesting because the great recession also coincided with the advent of the smartphone so just remember like smartphones. Come about people start using their phones for everything. Two Thousand and nine people start developing apps years later. People are using APPS for this and that but no one's really shopping on their phones and this is a big question around. Will people buy things on their smartphone? Well that is something that facebook and Google figured out to great effect and once they solve that question you really see their revenues just start to completely accelerate and kind of just catapult ahead of the rest of the digital advertising industry the tech platforms become the hubs for all of our reading habits and material and also on the back end all of the measurement and delivery of ads. And so people woke up to that. I want to say twenty and fifteen twenty sixteen all of a sudden you have these tech giants and everyone else's failing and the recession. That's Kinda come because of Cova is going to accelerate that so it's a lot of the same industries when we think about you know who was decimated during the great recession brick and mortar retail. Hospitality Media That are laying people off right now and tech is really taking over a lot of those spaces and certainly did back then. Do you think these industries can can weather this or is this. Just a truly transformational moment. Oh I think it's a truly transformational moment. I think I have to paraphrase Professor Scott. Galloway of nyu is so stupid on all these topics and he said you know. It's a tale of two Americas right now. So it's big tacking. It's everyone else. Everyone else includes not just other parts of the economy but smaller companies within the tech industry. Not only the giants have the cash to outlasted economy put on pause but also the ability to work actively to edge out competition for the services that people are still using when we think about other parts of the Silicon Valley ecosystem. That aren't the big four. What happens to these smaller companies? You wrote that you know a bunch of startup jobs. I think thirty thousand have been lost since March eleventh and yet at the same time we've seen companies like zoom. You know really flourish right now. What happens to all of them? So zoom is a great example because right now in this moment everyone's like zooms. The you know the success story of the you know the the the poster child of Success Story. Yeah during Cova. Not that anyone wants to say we're profiting off cove. It and I know they don't feel that way but certainly there's that exhilaration of their business just exploding. I think it exclude ninety percent just during the lockdowns but just look at. What's also happened in the last week that speaks to the power of giants? Google has announced. Hangouts meet they've created their own version of it and facebook is launching their own competitor to zoom into house. Party another APP that has exploded. I think I wrote in the Story House Party. According to APP Annie has grown fifteen hundred percent and so right. Now you're saying well. No one's heard of no one's using hangout. Google hangouts meat and no one's using facebook's thing but just three years from now we'll zoom exist will house party exist. Elizabeth says this moment gives tech giant's both the opportunity to push out smaller competition and capitalize on our new habits and also a chance to deflect or at least delay new regulations that were supposed to take effect this year. One place where you can see this happening is in California. At the end of last year the state passed a new law that would give people control of their data. It's called the California Consumer Privacy Act Law went into effect in January of this year and in California. The law says you can go to any tech company. You can ask them for your data. What data do you have on me? And if you don't like it you can have some to delete it. And so companies have said that there's a lot of cost of compliance with that law and so for a while they've been asking for a delay in the enforcement of the law because if you don't follow the law it comes with big penalties and you see the lobbying groups already for tech saying there's no way that we can comply with this on time. The enforcement goes into effect in July. There's no way we can make it by July. We need an extension and really kind of making that argument and at the same time increasingly on the other end becoming effectively. Essential Services for governments essential because governments are now relying on that same data to track the disease. I used the example in the story of Gavin. Newsom press conferences and he's holding up modeling for the Charting the course of the disease and those models some of them are coming from underlying data from companies like Google and facebook and so especially in California you see it because of the relationship of the tech companies to the state before the state was adversarial with big tax. I mean even when Governor Newsom came on came on board as governor one of the first things he talked about was like data bill of rights for people and it's and yet they're using the data that is collected now to model the course of Corona virus so that minutes office is is a big reversal
Coronavirus: Was It Made In a Lab?
"Since the early days. We've been hearing that. This virus came from bats in jumped to humans but another claim has pumped up. That's getting a lot of attention and developing tonight the. Us government is looking into the possibility. Covert nineteen originated in Chinese laboratory. The killer corona virus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan Pew Research. Paul recently found that thirty percent of Americans believed that this virus was made in a lab and not in nature. A lot of people are looking at. It seems to make sense. And here's what some people are pointing to as evidence is Elliott in this pandemic. Some news reports was saying that the outbreak took off in this animal market in Wuhan but then Chinese researchers say the first known patient had no exposure to the market adding fuel to the fire. It turns out that some ten miles away from that market is a high security lab the Wuhan Institute of Technology Scientists. Study some of the most dangerous viruses around. I would know that will haunt also has China's only biosafety level four LEX Super Laboratory. So is it possible that someone cooked up this virus on purpose? And how could we even know today on the show? The story of how scientists tracking down the origins of this virus delving deep into its genome to look for human fingerprints. And even if you don't think this virus was made in a lab stick around for this one because it's quite the adventure show. Science VERSUS CORONA VIRUS ESCAPED FROM THE LAB. Coming up to

"That's a possibility. I think it will all boil down to you. Know who whoever is being employed making sure that that they're aware of all of that potential clients customers that that could walk through the door and know how to assist them in the most reasonable manner. And we have to push for that Ex. Yeah I mean there's always I mean there's there's many ways we can can help people these days so Yeah I mean. I know I'm going to a hotel restaurants where the employees have Romney. The main you which is which is awesome. But when you get to the room yeah I guess you could probably call room service as well but then you I mean sometimes you may feel like you want the time to be able to make that make that decision or maybe you don't want to you know. Be on be that person that has the the employees on the pro reading everything. Thank you very well. Not Bacon cheeseburger. Ganapati tell me what was on that cops out like that would probably not good possibly put a person on the other end. Even though that their job they might be in the back of their head. Pick somebody so given. You could actually have that accessible menu. Yeah in Braille large print or or again. If there's some way to to turn it into an audible audible piece then that'd be awesome. Yeah I mean that and like I said they wouldn't have to do it for all do have to make six hundred menus for six hundred rooms. They would just have to make maybe five you know so. At least it's yeah for sure. I figure that one out absolutely that was easy. We figured out we got we got. We got a An option my weekend no work on during the time of just. I mean what the heck uncertainty. Yeah well you can always come idea. Well you know like I said you know the the idea that technology somebody from Marriott or Hilton or one of the big changes might listen to this podcast especially if I tag them and Hashtag them on all the social media right and maybe the way I always tell people's maybe they won't go. I listen to this podcast with Pete from the Travel Winston and Lex Gillette and gave me the idea. I'm going to give them full credit. But you more more than likely it's going to be planting a seed. Yeah you know. That's all it takes today and I think that we've gotten to the point now where they would be able to you know my head. I feel like they will be able to make that adjustment pretty pretty easily because things are made accessible right. I mean things can be made accessible very quickly depending on. When did they use someone like yourself? You know as spokesperson for for why and how they're doing it and to explain it to others it's social media can be very very positive right openreach figured out. What are the other question? I wanted to ask you and I don't WanNa get too much of your time when you're when you're traveling to all these different places I I know. A lot of athletes are on a pretty strict diet. You know being a world class athlete. You GotTa be careful what you what you're putting in your body. How difficult is that for you? We like you said you have. Sometimes you have our time even ordering food much less ordering specific food or food. You're trying to avoid. Yep Part for the most part is there's usually something that I can find that fits within my diet. I know that one of the things that that I do is if I'm traveling out of San Diego then I'll use your usually just take some food from from home and and Pakistan's basically but in my bag at least I know what those things I know where it's coming from and know exactly what each packaging etc etc. There are times when I of course by things in the airport and again that goes back to the assistant who helps me out and They do a really good job with excuse me knowing basically where everything is. 'cause they walk around the airport yeah each day and and so they they give me a number of options based on. Well basically just asked me. Hey what do you want? And I'll give them an idea and that's when they'll they'll shoot out. Okay well we are. We got this place..

I pleasure you met nick in Las Vegas yes at Sei con and then again here in Los Angeles shortly thereafter and and Nick was giving an excellent talk about a fight against homeopathy. But Nick has a very special position as the sole lawyer I am. CF is legal department. Yes yes this is at now center for inquiry. Yeah we talk about CFI every now and then on the show we all talk about the CFI the investigations group wing of that. I've been involved with for many many years and our first episode was recorded at the old. CF I- office and guess what we are now at the new CFI office which is still in La but now on Temple Street yeah come on by visit. There's going to be lectures all kinds of stuff. And that's at least that the old one that's where Kerry and I I met that's right club a club. I'm now co lead of that Book Club. We still meet every month if anybody's in L. A.. And wants to come talk about. Books is trying to get people to your book. I am absolutely the more the Mary Nick. How long have you been working with just over six years? I think it was six years in September that I started. And how did they lure you in. I'd like to give this sort of great story about how you know. I was led by the heart and emotion to the nonprofit world but I'll to law school I worked for a a big law. Firm represented fortune five hundred companies and received obscene paychecks. So doing and probably would of ended up doing that for the rest of my life because the paychecks are really compelling sure I'm syncing regretted and my phone went bankrupt really ooh God which which kind of happens to law firms occasionally and just imploded and through a combination of very weird circumstances and says I was offered another couple of jobs and failed the conflict check because I've done and then I was offered a job and it turned out that it was the law firm that my brother works for in the London office. And they have anti nepotism world. But he's not your nephew. Indeed you know I got. I need a job. I saw advertised that which was an organization. Confess I had never heard of. I was looking for somebody to though I amendment law which was kind of a passion of mine and so I applied without thinking a lot about that and then the more all right look at the organization I was like this is great. And if I don't get out of the big low world now I am never going to do it right. I'm so I took the plunge and I went off from work and I always say that I much prefer my job now to my old job two days a month when eh the first one came into nightly took it back to run Lensey at the time. I think there's a misprint. No zero somewhere. Oh my goodness misplaced. We should probably describe. CFI A little more. The center for inquiry was founded in nineteen seventy six thereabouts By Paul Kurtz and other leading lights of the critical thinking skeptical humanist Atheist Movement you had Isaac Asimov Carl Sagan. I'm James Randi Lot of those types involved early on in it's kind of existed for many years in two parts. You have your council for secular humanism which is all about sort of that humanist side more the philosophy side and then what was originally the committee for skeptical inquiry of claims of the paranormal S. I I just notice I cop yes okay. Not sure I had ever known instead I I may have messed up the CSI part of it because now it's just CSI it's not to be confused with CSI Miami or the other TV shows but it's the committee for skeptical inquiry. I think the original psycho had a different acronym boot good. Yeah so you came in six years ago now. We really brushed past what sounded like a very juicy. You See story what the Hell happened with your firm and what what were your conflicts of interest. This is the real juicy stuff neck. I wish I mean I wish the the foam went bankrupt Tom if they even have. La Office okay and a fell into the problem of expanding too quickly. Okay and have have a Salt Lake City office. I think which never made any money. Okay Mormons elements and they don't do anything wrong. Yeah and what happened with me on conflicts. lex They totally bizarre was had done seven hours work on a huge class action lawsuit that was representing. I can't even remember if we were representing or defending against the dairy farmers of microbes. Like milk price fixing literally did seven billable hours on this house else. Just something I filled in when I had some slow time And we would have to have got a signature to waive the conflict from every single angled member of the plaintiff's class that was like every thousand dairy amazing. CIC probably wasn't going to happen so net could go off from what for another. Solis got it. Wow a milky or story than I thought but not that. Jessie yes. Okay so then you came here. Also Solis but in a good way. Yes yes good solace and you were drawn to the First Amendment side of things so why would cfi what. Why would they be interested in First Amendment Law? Well they advertised the position in this was I was a little concerned about it I they described himself as a secular organization tonight. The first time I read it I thought it said sectarian organizations convinced applying to sort of a Catholic human human rights so tons out so get it did was talking about work and international human rights work and charged site separation law. And if you look at law school everyone takes criminal law classes in everyone takes the constitutional law classes because that Pham on and it's Great. It provides you conversation to talk about in bars some when you walk in lower northern things and then you end up working proofreading some four hundred page contracts for an oil company. Nobody practices what they want to. And everybody goes to law school saying I'm going to be a public defender or I'm going going to be a prosecutor on the. I'm going to work for a nonprofit and no one ever done you end up doing the drywall in the the lawyer industry. Yes and you get rewarded awarded very very nicely for but every lawyer I know they live for that. Pro Bono cases. Yeah I had some great ones arm and gives you a chance to you feel I making the world a better place. Exactly one person at the time you get the cool stories out of at night so many thought. Maybe I will get to do this like all the time. We're on the five percent of the time that my law firm would allow me to work not paid.

Another European Christmas
"A lot of the essential components of our Christmas celebrations originated in Germany. They gave us the Christmas tree. And MM Silent Knight. Let's start the hour to see how our friends Fabian. Reuter Caroliina Marburger. An hoeger Zimmer are enjoying the season in Germany Fabien Caroliina holder. Thanks so much for sharing your Christmas with us. Thanks for having knocking. Yeah so when you think about Germany Americans think about Oh Tanenbaum. That's German German. Isn't it a Christmas tree. Let's think about back when you were children. What are the memories? Carolin- tell me about the Christmas tree and how you decorated my favorite thing. Actually is that we always back in the day to day. It's just our family but back in the day all our friends come to our house and we went out to cut the treats and we still do cut the trees ourselves back. The old tradition is actually because I come from a region where the forest is owned by the Duke and so the tradition actually is surprisingly. It was the proper thing to do. You stole it. That was what was expected. So no no you have to see the dentist proper Christmas tree steal the tree from the Duke. Yes and then we bring it home and it would take a full day and everyone's efforts to to decorate it and of because natural candles. Of course that's natural candle holder. We still lex. You also cut the Christmas to L. together with my little daughter's with that solution to go out it and of course now we buy it. Did you not there anymore but I remember back to my childhood lot of secrecy is involved. Someone got the tree. Put it up. But we can't couldn't see that because it was kind of hitting it was like levintv similar like the living room would turn into the Christmas Room. Two doors is locked. The door is not there so living was actually no go zone zone so basically whatever goes on in terms of you know putting the Nativity scene or you know decorating at creating the tree. Getting all the stuff on there into candles. Dennis done behind closed doors so only then when like maybe after coming from Church then you were allowed a little bell rings acting thinking and Daniel would come in and everything was there like the cans were late and that was like the first time we kids and still. That's what we do still under that you've of creative. The parents create this wonder for the children's and that's all I see that's still in the eyes of my little daughter she comes. Dan knocked out. What happened it? Tree is decorated his presence. The Kendall's the real candles on the tree. We've Kennel sedate at something. Where the fire extinguisher nearby bucket of water? Water Fabio near Childhood Memories. Have the tree the candles. The Real Campbell's very important but for me the the Christmas season really always began with December six with the morning of Saint Nicholas Day. Oh Yeah because that is the day that Santa Claus drops by for the first time to tell you whether you have been good this year. Not Give you little inkling a little hint and so the evening you would put your shoes out and then go to bed and the next morning i the Santa Claus or his assistant have given you hint. If you've been good child. Santa Claus is left possibly chocolate or even little gift in your shoes. If you've been bad there's a lump of coal but do you have time then to make good before Christmas this come between December. Because I'm a very good child. Important about that is not only put up when you have to shine to shows I you gotta work for that. uh-huh yes otherwise. No no failing and then did you normally have some good news or bad news and six personally Always made sure would have good news so I tried to be have before December six. This is one thing that transcends borders the kids are being extorted and frightened being the good kid. So you're not you're nice and what about music or movies or TV specials In America we have certain you know cherished specials In Germany as a child or your kids today well of course it is the Christmas songs that we expect to sing in church the silent knight that everyone else things of course in any language but in its original form. And it's the most common Christmas movie that we watched one of my cherished films. That is a check East German production of nineteen seventy-three offer Cinderella Three Cinderella from Reno and it is one of the most feisty Cinderella's there isn't a thing in the world and wait a minute the most charming three that's for sure and this is produced by communist East Germany and the Socialists wanted to check you. How could this be that? The Communist governments would partner and producer a Christmas. Everyone needs fairytales. Yeah they they produce wonderful ones did have an agenda or was it just a political agenda. It's just it's a very we've very strong Cinderella and like some of the more Vegas silent ones when it comes to traditions also music like for us. It is important that we sing together. Like it's not just like report on a tape and there's like bing crosby going on now it's like the old traditional songs that we used to sing and we like to sing and when we come home from church differ thing we do is on Christmas Eve. We get together and sit in one room just candles in a hand and we sing as a family together the Christmas song and if we really want to do it might kid wants. Do We dance around the Christmas tree. It's kind of weird but it's still lives on. These traditions are still there. This is great to know that it lives on. I've been in Nurnberg on a very cold night with a group going from square to square and into the Church courtyard and Kendall it and singing these songs with Gusto. And it's just beautiful to hear the Christmas carols that I grew up with in German. The Silent Knight was originally in German. I mean Americans probably think it was written in English but no that's a translation steal enough right
Haden Fry has passed away at the age of 90.
"But Hayden fry we lost an iconic I will figure the other day at age ninety he fought that battle with cancer for a long time twenty seasons in Iowa a hundred forty three wins I had the privilege of seeing some of those wins and covering Iowa you were around him a lot hidden fry came up with this this hokey Texas style dumb as a fox war the sun glasses but boy did he went over that state did me we did he as I've told people the last couple days of this guy could run any fortune five hundred company because he knew who to hire he surrounded himself with great people he trusted them he he he delegated authority and all over your one line of of many that that he told me and I think nineteen ninety seven was I never want to hire an assistant coach who doesn't aspire to be a head coach and I know that's that's that's talking it's easy speak but you look at Hayden's first there were I think in nineteen ninety six or ninety seven you could have a leader maybe nine assistance top and that original staff he put together Wyrick five Amer hall of Famers or will be in the hall of fame notations in the hall of fame very over as Bob stoops bill Schneider in the hall of fame and her courage will be in the hall of fame but then you add in Dan McCarney and Donnie Patterson and bill Miller and later Bret Bielema and Chuck long all these guys reader all of employers are there going to be hall of fame coaches or at least most of them will be and so it and I'm not saying it was easy to wonder will because lockers are just suffered through eighteen nineteen non winning seasons I think there were two five hundred years in there had total lack was part of one of those but beyond that I will football pretty well tank after the the forest Evashevski run in the nineteen fifties and then along comes is Tracy from West Texas and I'm ever bump Elliott telling me after you're hired Frank Lautenberg who was the coach of the year to lido and he bombed and then Bob Cummings a high school coach Massillon Ohio came in and you know pull off a couple big upsets with this sizzle wasn't there and bomb should let me tell you it off I don't get this higher right you won't you won't see her anymore as AT and how ironic would that have been because about Bailey at only hired within a couple years time lute Olson Dan gable and Hayden fry and that doesn't that doesn't include C. Vivian stringer or later George raveling or Tom Davis sure or on on any pick bobbles be to selected as athletic director so bump Elliott was an absolute genius and he and Hayden it had the same kind of delivery Hayden Hayden was a front man Bob was always the guy in the background and they made it work for the better part of twenty years and Bob returned bowls became intercourse utility and do it as long as you want to do and then that prostate cancer reared its ugly head in in in the mid nineties and he struggled and obviously I will football slipped and the range were handed off to his disciple Kerr courage and it took him you know normally and and I will tell you the cupboard was pretty bare in ninety eight I remember I remember the gophers just absolutely kicking of the hard cash in the Metrodome Hayden's last year's last game and he had a tearful postgame press conference and then typically it takes for five years to get a program like Iowa restocked occurrence didn't three and in two thousand one they be Texas tech and clippings very in the Alamo bowl and it's been eighteen holes in nineteen years for Kirk Ferentz walls that time and you know and I I never take it for granted we never should I know Minnesota doesn't think what happened there sure for granted it's it's special to live in that kind of moment and I'm sure PJ's gonna have many years like it like he had this year and just like her Terence he he's obviously not done yet but Hayden was was a marvelous wept he had a character about a man and he understood he identified with the people I want me he came from the agricultural side of Texas and he knew all about farmers and and not only is he a hall of fame football coach would always would always amaze me and what a Namor him to what was your yeah you know having having the gall to change the tiger Harker change to the tiger hawk logo from the from her key with the challenge in the wings and the true arc having having the courage to call the Rooney family and say Hey I want to redo the I will uniforms and I want them to look more like the Steelers with the wide gold lettering and and are running said well go head coach but you better win and that's all he said and then the American each farmers the a and F. B. cal in the farm crisis the transcendent a lot more than I would it was Minnesota it was Nebraska was the farmers in South Dakota Hayden fry understood their plight and out of that came farm aid and millions upon millions of dollars for the for the farm family not not the big corporate farms but it that that's who he was the guy could run for governor and I won one a number of terms but he he thankfully stuck with football and with all the better for it yeah and when you look at the bullet points Gary on the resume of Hayden fry and and certainly again and I icon you brought up the a and F. D. cal I mean a bold stroke of genius a simple move but but he had everybody in that state you know eating out of his hand from that point on and then and then other things he did the pink locker rooms at Kinnick and I think he even if he were still around now would tell you his greatest accomplishment was integrating the Southwest Conference at SMU and he was the head coach there with jury Leviathan jury levias you know put up with a lot of crowd but he didn't got that ball rolling hating it was never afraid to take a chance on a young guy and you know that was the old Southwest Conference days was Arkansas that was taxes that was that was in North Texas at SMU everything was lily white and and he rolled the dice and and he always said that I didn't care what color the young man was he could play football and he could get it done on the academic side he was my kind of guy and and he rolled the dice with jury levias and to this day a jury lawyers she talks about breaking down the color barrier because of Hayden fry and and you know you and I should probably should mention that bullet point first Eric beyond a enough and and you know farm aid and the the tiger hawk logo which is now an international sign you can't walk anywhere in America overseas of somebody doesn't see that may go go arcs and I've heard that so many times Michigan Avenue or OR Broadway but he he just he from a P. R. marketing standpoint you know I've I've told people over the years we've all seen the wizard of oz and and the the human form of the wizard was the snake oil salesman who had the horse with the with the wooden wagon and he was selling the pots and pans the back end of his wagon when the tornado was wrong throne is trying to give Dorothy some philosophical advice about now you need to go back home and be with your parents it looks like a storm coming I think that was Hayden fry the wizard of oz he could he could spend it and and one of my favorite stories is that whenever we came to Minneapolis this is a hard one and and I hope she's doing okay said would come in the booth and and he he I think was Poland at total lex chain a little bit but I think he was as sure as you know are you get there's no way you guys are gonna keep Hayden fry he's going to USC he's going to Notre Dame or is going to the NFL every year he would come in every other year when we come to many many apples for and I wish it would matter should always got that you have been a huge there's no way you're going to keep this guy and and the point is understood how precious Hayden fry was not only as a football coach but in the environment that he was in that as long as he was and I was city I always going to be a winner they may not go to the Rose Bowl every year but he went to three of them in one three big ten championships and eighteen nineteen years yeah a remarkable run I remember covering the nineteen ninety Rose Bowl Iowa in Washington mark Brunell Chuck long it was a fabulous setting in Pasadena at the Arroyo Seiko and and I was since then has has really been able to you know year in year out have the kind of model that the golfers are looking for as far as their football program you know always being contention plan a bowl game in every two or three years maybe have a shot to you know playing a significant bowl game and it's great to reminisce Gary about Hayden fry in those days down in Ireland and certainly he's a legend so thanks for sharing your thoughts Hey my pleasure you know in Minnesota and and I work

"We were talking at the top of the program about threats to NATO and the US might surprise that cheese is amongst them president trump is proposing the imposition of tariffs hundred percent tariffs on some French goods NATO ally France of course and major producer champagne and cheese Philip is here all of which star star star son everything if you can think of it and its French he wants to slap some tariffs on it two point four billion dollars with the French goods including champagne as you mentioned Jeez as well no would only for some biscuits to go with those however he's not just going off to France because of that and the fact is that very quickly the reason he's going off from sees them the threat the Google digital tracks in addition to that he's also having a pop at the U. K. from Spain and Germany separate issue here this is the route between Abbas and Boeing at the same time is that these Sam going off to Argentina and Brazil to punish them for currency manipulations that's going to be tough so on the aluminum and steel up the same time is that he's been going off to China as well Turkey too and a bunch of other countries as well is this a very long list yes it is is it a very sensible thing to do that's a question I put to talk to Sean ten el economista Corey university in Sydney more to be gained we could dispute between the United trying to control her but now it's beginning to spring two or on a school trip by Rachel and even multi lateral relationships I think in a sense work behind it is the collapse of the order we only go global trading order was constructed after the second World War getting a strange email longer she could put on the pressure rises from countries street corner bother interested chain will be for a global economy but this is one of America's closest allies in the world it fronts in the European Union which we look at two separate stats here one where it's going off to France for its digital tax will propose digital dacs another words going off to different European Union members for a bus and rail with Boeing is it really a good idea to go off to your closest friends that way why are we going to get heat I think they're trump administration where it is a senior in ability will take the fight for the great thing to like in trying to think the flight tracking to stop your ego and shameful US Campari Greenlee you could relationship with China that's where the actual numbers quite can give me a call to you to you I said wait the worst trade practices from the U. exploded view is being properly so the extra fine with the European Union I'll be cool way of which okay throughout the world I think it's very much for the UAC dialog for taking on charter could this work out to the US to the the advantage of the US economy in the long run if it does manage to be balanced trade or do you think that there will always be a net negative affect out of how we having these kind of browse with your trade partners unfortunately I think the long run was altered beast will be here I think hello I'm fortunate McCain collection of blind shade teaching like in the wash speech okay by lex along the way the one we wearing track what you should be looking at a three hundred fold both you actually volition ship with all countries you tried waist and I think there's often in the White House I think there is a long standing track a trade relationship is bold and Jeff the winning side of you need to export beginning to import as well and I I think is that you know just sort of Nissan disdaining the school caught between expo opening for what you want so please forget it the target the you should be on the cool Dr Sean
Is Joe Biden Alright?
"With you we we just have to ask the musical question is Joe all right and I'm I know it's it's easy to have fun with this and I suppose I will now because it's the hairy legs quote and the rubbing my legs down and something about roaches and kids jumping on my lap it's so weird it's not like it was over the weekend either this is from an appearance that I think is somewhere in here in actual Delaware city or Delaware fill your some maybe strain I don't know because it just it was he's doing a lot of reminiscing about the old days which listen it's it's risky to get me to do that and I have my marbles so do I eat it all seriousness as I get ready to play thirty one seconds of audio that might make you drive the car off the road I continue to assert not Joe will necessarily be the nominee but there's something the matter with everybody yeah and I I am again you know what on the on the theme of the earlier our not just but I I'm not gonna vote for any of these people I'm not talking about you know this person's right there as Democrats they are wrong on virtually every issue but I'm let me pick somebody out of the crap like any publisher well the chart and to a degree Cory Booker I don't know why they're not doing better and I flat out rather like tells you Gabbard I don't mean to vote for her but in entry is quirky an interesting he just has the courage to kind of be just a little off kilter and away from the dog not drinking all the cool aid okay so I'm I'm the value aiding people as a commodity as a candidate commodity right and everybody's talking about Elizabeth Warren but I think a lot of Democrats know that if it if it's Elizabeth Warren that trump wins forty states in the end and it's just not going to be Bernie Sanders you know mayor Pete as an ascendancy in progress but I really ready for primetime maybe mayor peaches the thing that mayor P. has going for him may be that he's not Bernie he's not Elizabeth Warren is not Joe and that may be the process by which we get the the democratic nominee but but then you get to the mayor peak quandary which is that you can't find black people who care about him but maybe you can you know I honestly wish but let let me put out the blimp I want to hear from African American caller who loves me repeat he is your guy not that you would take him if he's the nominee because obviously we all get behind our nominee least you guys do so I would hear from black callers who love mayor Pete I I suggest that that's like Sasquatch it doesn't even really exist it's a fictitious creature but if it but if it does I'd love to have that verified right here so what we see and and give indeed the Democrat nomination process is one of the Christian like who's left after everybody else flames out it may be that the Joe Biden's gaffes for his his fraying synapses may just not matter so much Joe's been around forever there's a comfort zone around Joan speaking of black people black people love Joe black Democrats love Joe he's going to do really well in South Carolina Lee highway and or New Hampshire he's got a rock and roll in South Carolina Caroline so knows I could not about that along with it but he'll he'll do really well in South Carolina so I would suggest you know when you're what we have still been a couple of dozen or so Democrats running that when there are only two or three left one of them will be Joe one of them will be Joe Biden and maybe we'll have more moments like this so this is at least a couple weeks old but over the weekend people of had an amazing time with it so here we go Joe is reminiscing about his Danny's as a lifeguard you know I said on the stand and they get hot I got a lot I got hairy legs that turned that it that that that that that turned about blonde in the sun and the kid you sick about the region the poll I wrote my leg down so was traded that watch the hair come come back up again Hey look at so I learned about roaches I learned about kids jumping on my lap and I love kids jumping on my lap and I tell you what but of there you go now this this is not a multi something I've dug a little deeper we have team coverage it I'm a Dave maybe you remember this do you remember the Joe Biden yarn but he told about corn pop it was a person a a a a a some objectionable soul name one pop I found a little bit of this let's just let's let's just go it is the same event until our brain leaks out our years all all all lex takes on this a bit but here's that is it is this I'm really quite serious about this because this is about the the commodity that a candidate becomes his this is horribly unfair could you cherry pick all kinds of things because I'll say this again I've said it five times today if you follow me around and make it may not be that crazy but what will I go off on some riffs but if you say well is years years thirty seconds mark Mavis you'll think I belong in a rubber room it depends on what you find in what I happen to be focusing on but I guess that would be just be me speaking extemporaneously it be me in the middle of a show me on the middle of a conversation in private life me whatever if I'm standing at a lectern running for president I'm probably trying to avoid things like a lot I learned that done it makes a difference this was the diving board error and I was one of the guards and they were allowed to choose a three meter board if you fell off side where you landed on the dance or the dark cement over there Bob was a bad news one pop was a bad dude here is Joe's is corn pop available can can we book can we book corn pop for you know some segment in the next hour they ran a bunch of bad boards and I did yeah and back in those days you jot things have changed one of the things that he does if you use pot made you're here you have to wear baggy cap it sure is up on the board would listen I said Hey Astor you off the board rock come up and drag you off okay that's actually pretty funny at least it was in need of nineteen fifty eight it eight Astor a reference to Esther Williams a of a movie star famous for her a classic role holes I'm gonna give Joe some some credit for that actually course that's from guys in our administration weight came off and he said on meet outside my car this was mostly this is Ralph public housing behind it my car was a gate on here I parked my car outside the gate hi he said I'll be waiting for your great burger three guys you straight razor not a joke there's a guy named bill right mouse the only white guy he did all the lord he was the mechanic and I said well my god Joe is a race obsessed there's a racist bone in Biden's body which is riven by the concept of what color everybody is the only out here in the basement where mechanics where where all the bull builder it you know the chain management chain went across the defense any cut off a six foot let the Cheney for what he did you walk out with that change and your credit card so you may cut me ma'am but I'm gonna wrap this chain around your head I said you're kidding me he said now if you don't don't come back and he was right so I walked out with the change I walked up to my car finance dept those days used to member the straight red you're buying a moniker get a rusty put him in a rain barrel get a rusty well look at him but I was smart then I
