00:02:15   got you know what i'm going to i'm [TS]

00:02:17   changing i'm changing my tune [TS]

00:02:18   I'm changing course I realized that I I [TS]

00:02:25   now I'm going to work the rest of my [TS]

00:02:27   life that in order to pursue the the end [TS]

00:02:33   goal of having the US Congress be [TS]

00:02:38   composed entirely of women huh i think [TS]

00:02:43   if we had if we had an all-female [TS]

00:02:46   because there have been there were many [TS]

00:02:47   many many decades where it was all men [TS]

00:02:49   right and yet patty Murray to patty [TS]

00:02:53   Murray an amazing senator shirokino and [TS]

00:02:56   tennis shoes at her she's the mom and [TS]

00:02:57   tennis shoes that's right Maria Cantwell [TS]

00:02:59   the other Washington State the junior [TS]

00:03:00   washington state senator also a great a [TS]

00:03:02   great lady I feel like if the Congress [TS]

00:03:05   if the House and Senate were all women [TS]

00:03:08   the country would be run better and [TS]

00:03:12   there would be it would just in in [TS]

00:03:14   general I mean picture for a second [TS]

00:03:16   in general the quality of life in [TS]

00:03:19   America would skyrocket [TS]

00:03:22   I don't think there's I don't think [TS]

00:03:23   there's any you can't make a case [TS]

00:03:25   against an all-female Congress through [TS]

00:03:28   and I'm not you know half of them will [TS]

00:03:33   be Republicans let's just say that right [TS]

00:03:36   off the truck off the top half of them [TS]

00:03:37   are going to be you know you're gonna be [TS]

00:03:39   Phyllis shapely style [TS]

00:03:42   well when I think we're looking at cases [TS]

00:03:46   right but uh but I think in general all [TS]

00:03:51   of the whole Congress all women maybe [TS]

00:03:53   maybe like a couple of token guys and I [TS]

00:03:59   think that I think to take the United [TS]

00:04:00   States will only benefit so that's my [TS]

00:04:02   new project through which you do this [TS]

00:04:05   via Democratic means or will there be a [TS]

00:04:08   coup d'├ętat that has to be it has to be [TS]

00:04:11   Democratic in order to keep the flavor [TS]

00:04:13   of america and I had a little Democratic [TS]

00:04:15   for sure and and the honest honest to [TS]

00:04:17   god fact is that i cannot like in order [TS]

00:04:20   to achieve this goal i actually have to [TS]

00:04:23   like I it's not going to work if if [TS]

00:04:26   there's some guy behind it [TS]

00:04:28   yeah things that's also so what what I [TS]

00:04:31   have to do what it is [TS]

00:04:32   is basically as I have to voluntarily [TS]

00:04:36   step aside and not run for Congress not [TS]

00:04:41   run for the Senate in order to make [TS]

00:04:43   space for a more qualified woman ladies [TS]

00:04:46   first [TS]

00:04:47   that's right here truly are a gentleman [TS]

00:04:49   so i'm i'm making this sacrifice kind of [TS]

00:04:52   in with some ways what would be the [TS]

00:04:53   ultimate sacrifice in order and will not [TS]

00:04:56   remember not not running for Congress [TS]

00:04:58   without your ultimate sacrifice not [TS]

00:05:00   running for Congress it for me would be [TS]

00:05:02   the ultimate sacrifice all the way from [TS]

00:05:04   but some gave all I decided to not do [TS]

00:05:12   something about it yeah love but I have [TS]

00:05:14   a mouth full of peanut butter [TS]

00:05:16   I made cookies this morning [TS]

00:05:20   first first took you have eaten in a [TS]

00:05:21   long time and it's a cookie that i found [TS]

00:05:23   it when I was cleaning out the van and I [TS]

00:05:28   was like I don't want to throw this away [TS]

00:05:30   i don't know how old it is but I don't [TS]

00:05:31   want to throw it away it seems like a [TS]

00:05:32   waste of a good cookie so I kept it [TS]

00:05:34   around for a couple of weeks in a jar [TS]

00:05:36   and then I was like this morning i don't [TS]

00:05:40   know i was feeling vulnerable i ate the [TS]

00:05:42   cookie and I don't know what happens [TS]

00:05:45   when cookie is like six months old [TS]

00:05:47   whether the salt in it kind of condenses [TS]

00:05:49   I think it can sit up on its own [TS]

00:05:51   maybe maybe through salt from the air [TS]

00:05:53   huh [TS]

00:05:54   it was a very salty cookie was it out in [TS]

00:05:56   the open John was just a van cookie just [TS]

00:05:59   kind of out out know it's there wasn't [TS]

00:06:01   like it's not it's not like it felt [TS]

00:06:02   between the seat cushions no it wasn't [TS]

00:06:04   it was in a cookie bag who but it was [TS]

00:06:07   the it was a solitary cookie in a cookie [TS]

00:06:09   bag maybe it's just the Christmas [TS]

00:06:12   talking but that seems very sad and [TS]

00:06:13   graduated [TS]

00:06:14   yeah I didn't and it was good but boy [TS]

00:06:16   salty and I have to watch my salt intake [TS]

00:06:19   now why is that well you know i I'm I'm [TS]

00:06:24   aging so fast [TS]

00:06:27   alright i went to the doctor the other [TS]

00:06:30   day first time in a long time and the [TS]

00:06:33   the the nurse [TS]

00:06:37   weighs and measures me and I swear to [TS]

00:06:43   you I have no idea if this is even [TS]

00:07:01   unsettling i was there i was there 10 [TS]

00:07:03   see the doctor about a thing that was [TS]

00:07:06   but deviling me but as soon as this dose [TS]

00:07:08   gives me this this diagnosis of being [TS]

00:07:12   one inch shorter than I ever was [TS]

00:07:15   I now I didn't care about whatever the [TS]

00:07:18   problem was that got me to the doctor [TS]

00:07:19   and all i wanted to talk about was how [TS]

00:07:21   that's possible [TS]

00:07:22   the doctor guy was sitting in the [TS]

00:07:23   waiting for sitting in the examination [TS]

00:07:25   room and the doctor comes in and said so [TS]

00:07:27   tell me about what brought you in here [TS]

00:07:29   today and I said I don't want to talk [TS]

00:07:30   about that anymore i want to talk about [TS]

00:07:32   your uh your height at your height scale [TS]

00:07:37   and how it is broken and so she measured [TS]

00:07:40   me again [TS]

00:07:41   actually it was a nurse practitioner [TS]

00:07:42   probably pulled in the big guns [TS]

00:07:46   she measured me again and she was like [TS]

00:07:47   sorry and always tell you [TS]

00:07:49   oh my god John that must be really a [TS]

00:07:51   disquieting i I don't I there i have no [TS]

00:07:55   context for it because like for example [TS]

00:08:12   his in his later years he had lost an [TS]

00:08:15   inch or two but I am NOT not an old man [TS]

00:08:19   who is shrinking in his shoes I don't [TS]

00:08:22   know if you don't get a second opinion [TS]

00:08:23   I mean something others i got a second [TS]

00:08:26   opinion from a nurse practitioner I'm [TS]

00:08:28   very disquieted that's very disquieting [TS]

00:08:29   John that that's that you're right that [TS]

00:08:31   should be something where you know let's [TS]

00:08:33   kick this other thing down the lane a [TS]

00:08:35   little bit and talk about my height [TS]

00:08:36   yeah it's yeah right high blood pressure [TS]

00:08:39   can wait [TS]

00:08:40   yeah overworked and not for the time [TS]

00:08:42   yeah hot see all these things it's [TS]

00:08:45   usually worse for your blood pressure [TS]

00:08:47   than knowing you're getting short [TS]

00:08:49   I was washing my hands at the sink the [TS]

00:08:51   other day of my back went out [TS]

00:09:03   catch up [TS]

00:09:05   it's the worst I need to use the toilet [TS]

00:09:07   anyway yeah you know it's not die at I [TS]

00:09:11   it's not that I need to start working [TS]

00:09:13   out in order to get lean so that i can [TS]

00:09:16   look good at the beach or whatever i'm [TS]

00:09:19   not just start working out just to [TS]

00:09:20   survive and not become elephant have to [TS]

00:09:23   start working out just so that I can [TS]

00:09:25   wash my hands at the sink and not [TS]

00:09:27   collapse into a pile of nervous yes we [TS]

00:09:30   need compensatory and washing muscles [TS]

00:09:35   a standing desk [TS]

00:09:36   yeah fuck you get one of those those [TS]

00:09:39   backwards chairs where your kind of [TS]

00:09:41   kneeling all down like a yoga ball that [TS]

00:09:43   was hit on a yoga ball [TS]

00:09:44   yeah yeah I think you should get a [TS]

00:09:45   lectern or a pulpit but if you do [TS]

00:09:47   whatever your work is if you did that [TS]

00:09:48   from a standing position but instead of [TS]

00:09:50   one of those hipster standing desks or a [TS]

00:09:52   treadmill desk you can do it from an [TS]

00:09:54   actual pulpit your genuine pulpit and [TS]

00:09:56   maybe then get a really giant yoga ball [TS]

00:10:00   like that tall yoga ball that seemed [TS]

00:10:05   like it was very hard to balance on with [TS]

00:10:06   their condition [TS]

00:10:08   well I wouldn't actually sit on top of [TS]

00:10:10   it i was just going to lean back on you [TS]

00:10:51   tall six-foot-three is extraordinary [TS]

00:10:53   six-foot-three is switching to this [TS]

00:10:56   special category of people that [TS]

00:10:57   legitimately can walk around [TS]

00:10:59   like like normal rules don't apply [TS]

00:11:03   uh-huh they can sort of just just lumber [TS]

00:11:06   into a room and expect that special [TS]

00:11:52   maybe it's all hollering for this is [TS]

00:11:55   really this is very upsetting especially [TS]

00:11:56   around the holidays to learn something [TS]

00:11:58   like that [TS]

00:11:58   did your clothes fit different and [TS]

00:12:00   because the things you've been losing [TS]

00:12:13   OB spine I had like fat in my knees and [TS]

00:12:15   my joints and it was making me an inch [TS]

00:12:17   taller but that doesn't explain what I [TS]

00:12:18   was I mean I reached the I reached my my [TS]

00:17:22   I and so huh [TS]

00:17:28   but the the staff when I got done [TS]

00:17:30   laughing and professionally they were [TS]

00:17:32   not worried that this was that you were [TS]

00:17:34   getting soft bones or something they [TS]

00:17:36   gave every impression of not believing [TS]

00:17:38   that I had ever been six through that is [TS]

00:17:44   calling [TS]

00:17:45   they were just like oh well hmm so now [TS]

00:17:49   you also takes a little i can also [TS]

00:17:52   selling an old man who lies about his [TS]

00:17:53   past [TS]

00:17:54   yeah it's like it's like okay well let's [TS]

00:17:56   see it's a it's not likely that you lost [TS]

00:17:59   an inch in height so the only [TS]

00:18:02   explanation is that you are either lying [TS]

00:18:05   about your height as a grown man or that [TS]

00:18:10   you have never known your height right [TS]

00:18:12   and at some point in your teen years [TS]

00:18:15   developed a fantasy of what your actual [TS]

00:18:18   height was and no matter what people [TS]

00:18:22   told you though this whole time you just [TS]

00:18:24   ignored it and now all of a sudden for [TS]

00:18:26   whatever reason your ears are open and [TS]

00:18:29   you're being told the truth I don't like [TS]

00:18:32   that neither of those things none of [TS]

00:18:35   these things are possible the only [TS]

00:18:37   possibility is that the floor of the [TS]

00:18:39   hospital is wrong that the floor of the [TS]

00:18:41   hospital is skewed relative to the walls [TS]

00:18:43   and i think i think probably it's either [TS]

00:18:47   the floor has risen because there is [TS]

00:18:49   some kind of water the water table is [TS]

00:18:50   rising under the hospital or the walls [TS]

00:18:53   of the hospital have sunk and the floor [TS]

00:18:55   has remained the same was an old [TS]

00:18:57   facility it is ok what's it's probably [TS]

00:18:59   breathing you know it's probably it [TS]

00:19:02   expands and contracts an inch give or [TS]

00:19:04   take [TS]

00:20:35   38 line this is the thing about about [TS]

00:20:41   medicine [TS]

00:20:42   I you know I've been over this round and [TS]

00:20:44   round but did you read the other day [TS]

00:20:45   that the that the doctor who popularized [TS]

00:20:47   the diagnosis of ADHD is now coming out [TS]

00:20:51   saying that ADHD is being over diagnosed [TS]

00:20:54   by a factor of 10 in the American people [TS]

00:20:57   yep and he doesn't believe that it [TS]

00:20:58   doesn't believe that any of those people [TS]

00:21:00   have it filled by the pharmaceutical [TS]

00:21:02   industry that's right put it by the drug [TS]

00:21:05   companies it's been a crazy couple weeks [TS]

00:21:06   in turns out medical literature there [TS]

00:21:09   was the ADHD thing was in was Atlantic [TS]

00:21:11   New York Times somewhere that there is [TS]

00:21:13   the the letter to the letter basically [TS]

00:21:16   from the esteem physicians about how [TS]

00:21:18   vitamin supplements do nothing but harm [TS]

00:21:39   own hands fisted non-expert way say what [TS]

00:21:44   my problem with all these things are is [TS]

00:21:46   just because it has the point 0 0 0 1 [TS]

00:21:49   percent of this active ingredient I mean [TS]

00:26:21   ionic investigating and about it he gave [TS]

00:26:23   me an antibiotic off and that and it was [TS]

00:26:26   it was it felt to me like he had put [TS]

00:26:28   plaster of Paris into a fire [TS]

00:26:42   antibiotic for a thing that he does not [TS]

00:26:45   know what it is and so because this [TS]

00:26:48   issue was causing me you know some [TS]

00:26:51   psychic discomfort let's say I against [TS]

00:26:55   my against every second cock isn't it my [TS]

00:27:01   second caucus is shriveling up like a [TS]

00:27:05   naughty i have met and it is accounting [TS]

00:27:07   for a loss in height but the flavor is [TS]

00:27:09   something that happens it not only hurts [TS]

00:27:10   the credibility of your medical [TS]

00:27:12   relationship but it but it doesn't make [TS]

00:27:14   you feel any better to go i'm not sure [TS]

00:27:16   what it is but just in case it's [TS]

00:27:17   something that I don't understand you [TS]

00:27:19   better [TS]

00:27:19   better take some medicine right so I so [TS]

00:27:22   I i take this i take this drug for a [TS]

00:27:24   week my problem does not improve so I go [TS]

00:27:27   to another doctor back here in Seattle [TS]

00:27:30   and I bring the empty pill bottle and i [TS]

00:27:32   said i went to a doctor he gave me these [TS]

00:27:33   pills [TS]

00:27:34   it did not do anything I'd really rather [TS]

00:27:39   talk about how it is I could have lost [TS]

00:27:41   an inch in height but while I'm here [TS]

00:27:45   can you tell me what this is that he [TS]

00:27:47   gave me why it didn't work and what is [TS]

00:27:49   actually the problem and the nurse [TS]

00:27:51   practitioner was like oh i see why he [TS]

00:27:53   gave you that he probably thought it was [TS]

00:27:54   this [TS]

00:27:55   but i think it's probably this and I'm [TS]

00:27:59   going to give you this pill at which [TS]

00:28:03   point everything I think about the [TS]

00:28:06   medical profession in the world is [TS]

00:28:08   confirmed because right now the car that [TS]

00:28:12   I Drive that is producing a kind of [TS]

00:28:14   high-pitched whine in the transmission [TS]

00:28:16   and I know although i could not do the [TS]

00:28:21   work myself I I know pretty much every [TS]

00:28:23   part that goes into a car and I have a [TS]

00:28:27   kind of idea about what is making this [TS]

00:28:29   sound and if i took it into a guy he [TS]

00:28:32   would listen to it and he would probably [TS]

00:28:34   have a kind of idea about what it is [TS]

00:28:37   maybe it's this maybe it's that put put [TS]

00:28:40   a little stp oil treatment in your gas [TS]

00:28:44   or whatever I mean he he's not going to [TS]

00:28:47   break open the transmission he's only [TS]

00:28:49   good there's only a couple of things [TS]

00:28:50   he's going to do to treat the problem [TS]

00:28:53   and this is a car made by he made by [TS]

00:28:57   humans and we were there are books that [TS]

00:28:59   have every part will laid out now human [TS]

00:29:02   being with all of their many many parts [TS]

00:29:05   that they that we do not understand i'm [TS]

00:29:07   just about the pumps and valves these [TS]

00:29:12   doctors are just throwing pills at it [TS]

00:29:13   like it's some kind of like it's a dark [TS]

00:29:18   game [TS]

00:29:19   none of it's working it's just making me [TS]

00:29:22   matter and then I remember a year and a [TS]

00:29:25   half ago the doctor who was throwing [TS]

00:29:28   mind pills at me he was throwing little [TS]

00:29:33   blue pills that we're going to improve [TS]

00:29:35   my mood by blocking my bettas it by [TS]

00:29:43   blocking the serotonin reuptake [TS]

00:29:45   inhibitors [TS]

00:29:47   no he wasn't blocking them hey w- yes [TS]

00:29:50   they were [TS]

00:29:51   stay where he was he was blocking the [TS]

00:29:53   reuptake of serotonin [TS]

00:29:56   and I'm just I'm so infuriated none of [TS]

00:29:59   these people know anything they did you [TS]

00:30:02   know what I went to school just as long [TS]

00:30:03   as they did that maybe I wasn't that [TS]

00:30:05   time maybe I wasn't like you know I [TS]

00:30:09   wasn't taking labs but the reality is i [TS]

00:30:15   would happily prescribe stuff to be I i [TS]

00:30:22   don't think it was into my thirties that [TS]

00:30:24   I ever finished a course of the [TS]

00:30:27   prescribed antibiotics you were one of [TS]

00:30:30   those guys and I'm gonna do that through [TS]

00:30:32   and then dump dump the rest of the [TS]

00:30:33   middle river when they would say like oh [TS]

00:30:35   yeah I put it right into the toilets and [TS]

00:30:36   get into the aquifer but yeah well they [TS]

00:30:39   but they would say back then remember [TS]

00:30:40   you got to take all of these and I [TS]

00:30:42   always thought that was like okay well [TS]

00:30:43   yeah whatever but if I'm feeling better [TS]

00:30:44   if I don't have the earache anymore and [TS]

00:30:46   so I mean it's like it's like a friend [TS]

00:30:48   of mine a friend of mine has i should [TS]

00:30:51   mention the word I i would like what [TS]

00:30:52   like what the vaccine stuff like i have [TS]

00:30:54   a friend whose kid it doesn't have like [TS]

00:30:57   phony-baloney vaccine things like he [TS]

00:30:59   actually has allergies that will make [TS]

00:31:02   him very very sick with certain kinds [TS]

00:31:04   the killing basically if you take [TS]

00:31:06   certain vaccines so it's really [TS]

00:31:07   important that other people have [TS]

00:31:08   vaccines because it love to give this [TS]

00:31:11   kid vaccines but they can't [TS]

00:31:12   and now I feel like today it's like that [TS]

00:31:14   with antibiotics were like people let's [TS]

00:31:16   all work together to make our immune [TS]

00:31:18   system stronger [TS]

00:31:19   let's let's not do things to take our [TS]

00:31:21   little bugs to the gym let's let's let's [TS]

00:31:23   all really take this a little bit more [TS]

00:31:26   seriously see and this seems like this [TS]

00:31:28   seems like the type of thing that an [TS]

00:31:29   all-female Congress would address which [TS]

00:31:33   part the whole thing the whole concept [TS]

00:31:35   of working together as some kind of hot [TS]

00:33:49   the line and i was like i should have [TS]

00:33:51   just kept that to myself [TS]

00:33:54   it's hard to know who's on the other [TS]

00:33:56   hand like I could very much be see that [TS]

00:33:58   going either way I could definitely see [TS]

00:33:59   no matter what I could definitely see [TS]

00:34:11   always nice to hear you know anyone to [TS]

00:34:17   he took that away and was like that was [TS]

00:34:20   nice but you know he didn't he didn't [TS]

00:34:22   want to sit and talk to me about her [TS]

00:34:24   which I understand yeah yeah so you [TS]

00:34:29   think she should have been in the [TS]

00:34:30   Congress well so that you don't so that [TS]

00:34:33   the role she plays in jail Johnny [TS]

00:34:35   politic it is a you know she's like a [TS]

00:34:37   crusty realpolitik southern accent [TS]

00:34:44   admitted you know clearly like a [TS]

00:34:47   Democrat who's playing who's playing [TS]

00:34:49   both sides and Demi Moore is this is [TS]

00:34:53   trapped in the middle she's between the [TS]

00:34:54   monkey bars and and I feel like yeah [TS]

00:35:01   right that I mean that is a character [TS]

00:35:04   that i would like to see duplicated and [TS]

00:35:08   made real bella abzug eggs of the world [TS]

00:35:12   like I understand which is a congress [TS]

00:35:15   you would like to see the Congress [TS]

00:35:16   filled with anne bancroft you would like [TS]

00:35:17   to see a lot more than a hand a handful [TS]

00:35:20   of people like that character [TS]

00:35:23   well yeah or the actual and bancroft be [TS]

00:35:26   nice wouldn't she have made a great [TS]

00:35:28   politician you know another another good [TS]

00:35:29   lady wife Joanne Woodward she's a nice [TS]

00:35:32   wife i thought if i had met if I had the [TS]

00:35:35   chance to to meet Paul Newman I would [TS]

00:35:37   have been very tempted to say something [TS]

00:35:39   similar to what you said developer right [TS]

00:35:40   exactly used to you have you you appear [TS]

00:35:42   to have had the kind of relationship [TS]

00:35:44   that is very inspiring to me [TS]

00:35:45   yeah there are not very many people who [TS]

00:35:47   can say I was married to an amazing [TS]

00:35:51   person for 60 plus years or whatever [TS]

00:35:54   yeah but and when you see those events [TS]

00:35:57   you see those those instances where it's [TS]

00:35:59   like yeah right you know you probably [TS]

00:36:02   had your hard times but wow what a what [TS]

00:36:04   a pain [TS]

00:36:05   there was a coupling that whole idea [TS]

00:36:08   that we are that we are halves of a [TS]

00:36:10   whole that we are incomplete without our [TS]

00:36:13   other was an idea that was not made [TS]

00:36:18   clear to me firsthand but when i see it [TS]

00:36:24   manifest in the world like it's it's [TS]

00:36:29   appealing it's appealing at a distance [TS]

00:36:31   la an excuse me and absolutely is and [TS]

00:36:35   the other thing is that I think that can [TS]

00:36:37   be made more Universal less creepy by [TS]

00:36:39   saying there are a lot of people who may [TS]

00:36:42   not realize in retrospect that there was [TS]

00:36:44   a another half to their whole until they [TS]

00:36:46   meet that person it isn't like everybody [TS]

00:36:48   should sit around and feel bad that they [TS]

00:36:49   haven't found the joanne woodward yet [TS]

00:36:50   they're there but there are people out [TS]

00:36:52   there who clearly get a gestalt out of [TS]

00:36:54   relationship that other people don't get [TS]

00:36:55   but I feel like that of the idea that [TS]

00:36:57   that you just haven't met your other [TS]

00:37:00   half [TS]

00:37:01   yeah there's a terrible idea it's [TS]

00:37:04   horrible it's one of those kind of all [TS]

00:37:07   the crackpot romantic mythology's that [TS]

00:37:09   that's when it's really corrosive that [TS]

00:37:11   is it makes me so mad when I when I met [TS]

00:37:13   the lady that that wrote the book Eat [TS]

00:37:17   Pray Love yeah I i was i was really [TS]

00:43:30   out how to do it regularly and this [TS]

00:43:33   coffee maker every one of its features [TS]

00:43:35   comes with a corresponding bug so it has [TS]

00:43:41   a gold filter instead of a paper filter [TS]

00:43:43   i'll throw that out that's going what [TS]

00:43:44   that means is that every one of my [TS]

00:43:46   coffee cups has like grounds in the [TS]

00:43:48   bottom like I'm in Turkey island and [TS]

00:43:51   they're awful a clean like he wants to [TS]

00:43:53   be sitting there spraying out a gold [TS]

00:43:54   filters that's the thing i use twice as [TS]

00:43:56   much water as i used to use because i [TS]

00:43:58   have to clean this gold filter and if [TS]

00:44:02   the if the water bucket isn't seated in [TS]

00:44:05   the grommet properly then it won't turn [TS]

00:44:07   on and the Bandit beeps 20 times less [TS]

00:44:12   time to write after that he scaled yeah [TS]

00:44:15   what I wake up in the morning and the [TS]

00:44:16   prospect of making coffee with this [TS]

00:44:18   thing but it makes me to roll over and [TS]

00:44:20   go back to sleep [TS]

00:44:21   it's just created anxiety John I'm not [TS]

00:44:23   painting watercolors I'm not going up [TS]

00:44:25   animal [TS]

00:44:25   hi down to 5 11 it's infuriating you [TS]

00:44:30   know I because i bought this thing [TS]

00:44:32   thinking like I also have one of those [TS]

00:44:35   lights that comes on in the morning that [TS]

00:44:37   is supposed to wake me up with full [TS]

00:44:39   spectrum labs members in the color [TS]

00:44:41   television with a remote haha a Merlin I [TS]

00:44:48   don't hurt television i hear they went [TS]

00:44:49   and built the skyscraper seven stories [TS]

00:44:52   high [TS]

00:44:52   everything's up to date in Kansas City [TS]

00:44:55   yeah yeah I don't know the television is [TS]

00:44:57   this something you don't even know I [TS]

00:44:59   don't know I don't tell me there's only [TS]

00:45:00   one there's only one name you ever need [TS]

00:45:02   to give a takeout place and that is Bob [TS]

00:45:05   there's only one coffee maker you ever [TS]

00:45:06   need to own which is the one that we [TS]

00:45:08   have which is this one cuisinart up a [TS]

00:45:10   little bit more you one of these a year [TS]

00:45:12   every year or two and so it's all the [TS]

00:45:14   coffee filter coffee maker you need when [TS]

00:45:16   you buy a new coffeemaker every year [TS]

00:45:17   well we used to really go through them [TS]

00:45:19   now less so now the proud of you go [TS]

00:45:22   through a coffee man let me restate me I [TS]

00:45:24   put that poorly what we used to do was [TS]

00:45:26   say fuck it we'll just get whatever at [TS]

00:45:29   whatever you got three is or so whatever [TS]

00:45:32   whatever [TS]

00:45:33   yeah you get whatever whatever and [TS]

00:45:35   finally we popped for I think that it's [TS]

00:45:37   like 40 60 bucks something like that [TS]

00:45:38   this one cuisinart DC dash something so [TS]

00:45:40   that's what everybody owns its kind of [TS]

00:45:42   slightly retro-looking its got like a [TS]

00:45:44   metal front thing and its really it's at [TS]

00:45:47   me it's like all the features you need a [TS]

00:45:48   coffee maker one place and I'm telling [TS]

00:45:50   you this because I think it's very [TS]

00:45:52   difficult especially with akash [TS]

00:45:53   especially things like TVs could be with [TS]

00:45:56   computers with whatever it is like it's [TS]

00:45:58   so hard to find the right balance of [TS]

00:46:00   that seeming convenience that will [TS]

00:46:01   enable you to write and do watercolors I [TS]

00:46:03   was sourcing the complexity like keep a [TS]

00:46:06   blog where they would review new gear [TS]

00:46:08   and tech stuff and tell you which one is [TS]

00:46:11   the best [TS]

00:46:12   there's only one site you need to go to [TS]

00:46:13   for that actually this is it gizmodo [TS]

00:46:15   help wire cutter they have a wonder [TS]

00:46:18   cutter you told me about that's exactly [TS]

00:46:19   one paragraph based on research this is [TS]

00:46:34   cutter on our podcast why don't they [TS]

00:46:57   just wouldn't call it anything [TS]

00:46:58   well i know i don't watch TV so yeah me [TS]

00:47:00   neither it would just end up in the [TS]

00:47:07   doctor who could good-byes are you [TS]

00:47:10   saying good are you saying good are you [TS]

00:47:11   saying good i'm being dismissive in that [TS]

00:47:13   way you you paid when I do between the [TS]

00:47:17   monkey bars y the last man i'll show you [TS]

00:47:20   friday a meeting oh sorry go ahead [TS]

00:47:22   well have you ever been have you ever [TS]

00:47:23   been doing know I keep meaning to they [TS]

00:47:25   are amazing [TS]

00:47:27   well I've always been curious because it [TS]

00:47:29   seems like people & T on TV anyway [TS]

00:47:31   people smoke and they drink a lot of [TS]

00:47:33   coffee and a meeting that real TV [TS]

00:47:36   well no you can't smoke in the many more [TS]

00:47:38   most of them boo i know but there is a [TS]

00:47:41   lot of coffee happening and the problem [TS]

00:47:44   with a meetings as they are portrayed in [TS]

00:47:48   film and on TV is that dramatically the [TS]

00:47:54   the scriptwriters the screenwriters who [TS]

00:47:57   all I'm sure belong in a meetings but [TS]

00:48:00   probably none of them ever been to one [TS]

00:48:02   or or na [TS]

00:48:03   yeah they all want there to be what what [TS]

00:48:07   in at one today is called crosstalk [TS]

00:48:09   which is that the person is talking [TS]

00:48:11   telling their story and then someone [TS]

00:48:13   else in the room confronts them about it [TS]

00:48:16   or the squad leader of the meeting gets [TS]

00:48:21   up and make some comment about what they [TS]

00:48:24   just shared you know like they there [TS]

00:48:27   they always introduced into the script [TS]

00:48:29   some back-and-forth between a person who [TS]

00:48:33   is like in authority in the a meeting [TS]

00:48:36   and the protagonist but the reality is [TS]

00:48:40   that that that never happens in a [TS]

00:48:43   meeting there is no leader and so there [TS]

00:48:45   is never know whenever comments on no [TS]

00:48:48   one ever replies to you [TS]

00:48:51   exactly Robert's Rules of AAA well there [TS]

00:48:53   are rules but like you get up and you [TS]

00:48:55   talk and then you sit down and then the [TS]

00:48:58   next person gets up and talks there [TS]

00:48:59   isn't that no one ever says like you [TS]

00:49:01   know part of your problem is [TS]

00:49:03   blah blah blah like it's not it isn't [TS]

00:49:06   ever done that way it's just that part [TS]

00:49:09   of the ethos you don't yeah it's [TS]

00:49:10   absolutely part of the ethos it's called [TS]

00:49:12   it's called crosstalk and make a frown [TS]

00:49:14   on it [TS]

00:49:15   they also don't think that you should [TS]

00:49:16   date people that you meet in a meetings [TS]

00:49:18   but that's really hard with a lot of [TS]

00:49:20   scriptwriters get a lot wrong about a [TS]

00:49:22   they do they do and I don't know I for a [TS]

00:49:26   long time I thought maybe they were [TS]

00:49:27   intentionally obscuring it because they [TS]

00:49:30   because everyone in hollow Hollywood was [TS]

00:49:32   in a and they didn't want the secret to [TS]

00:49:34   get out but then I realized that it was [TS]

00:49:36   just that for dramatic purposes they [TS]

00:49:38   need there to be some authority figure [TS]

00:49:41   and I think what's happening is they're [TS]

00:49:43   there they're putting a lot of those are [TS]

00:49:45   setting a lot of those scenes now in [TS]

00:49:47   rehabs and rehabs are a lot [TS]

00:49:50   culty you're feeling but I don't know [TS]

00:49:52   I've never seen the idea actually fight [TS]

00:49:56   club did a pretty good job of [TS]

00:49:58   representing what what some of those [TS]

00:50:01   meetings are really like although i've [TS]

00:50:02   never been to like cancer survivor [TS]

00:50:04   meeting meatloaf was funny it was funny [TS]

00:50:06   but in any case a lot of those meetings [TS]

00:50:08   are held in churches and if you go into [TS]

00:50:10   the church basements and you start going [TS]

00:50:12   through the cupboards you will find [TS]

00:50:15   sometimes eight to fifteen coffee makers [TS]

00:50:20   that have just that are just like dead [TS]

00:50:23   soldiers [TS]

00:50:25   no one can you know like it's not that [TS]

00:50:28   they stopped working [TS]

00:50:29   it's that a new one is cheap enough to [TS]

00:50:32   get into that somebody brings the new [TS]

00:50:35   one and then you feel like you gotta [TS]

00:50:37   plug the new one in and start using it [TS]

00:50:38   and so the old ones not broken but you [TS]

00:50:44   know you're not using anymore and so it [TS]

00:50:45   goes up in the cupboard and a lot of [TS]

00:50:47   these kitchens in church basements [TS]

00:50:48   they're not used for anything but a [TS]

00:50:50   meetings so they got all these cupboards [TS]

00:50:52   and so the coffeemakers just go up in [TS]

00:50:55   the cupboards and pretty soon you open [TS]

00:50:57   these cupboards just like it's a fucking [TS]

00:50:59   museum of coffee makers that what you [TS]

00:51:01   don't have you gotten from a meeting in [TS]

00:51:03   the past [TS]

00:51:03   please pick one up no you don't take [TS]

00:51:05   from me you know you're not supposed to [TS]

00:51:07   steal a coffeemaker mother that's the [TS]

00:51:09   third rule of fight club members today [TS]

00:51:10   they're still the content filter coffee [TS]

00:51:11   maker but you know you open it up and [TS]

00:51:12   it's like is that an original mr. coffee [TS]

00:51:15   right [TS]

00:51:16   probably some of them if they weren't [TS]

00:51:17   also coffee-stained probably they would [TS]

00:51:19   be like with a little bit of money i [TS]

00:51:21   think that's who I don't know about that [TS]

00:51:23   by I think that's one reason like for me [TS]

00:51:24   just like this is not fun to clean [TS]

00:51:26   anymore this is just gross [TS]

00:51:27   yeah all the parts on this are plastic [TS]

00:51:29   and and it's disgusting and who think [TS]

00:51:34   about this [TS]

00:51:35   ya think about a pneumatic cannon that [TS]

00:51:41   shoots coffeemakers it's like a t-shirt [TS]

00:51:44   kind of for coffee makers [TS]

00:51:45   yes so we build a t-shirt cannon but [TS]

00:51:49   coffee maker sides and listening and [TS]

00:51:51   then people from all over come with [TS]

00:51:53   their old coffee makers and we should we [TS]

00:51:57   like shoot'em like we should wait we put [TS]

00:51:59   a couple of old Volkswagens downrange [TS]

00:52:01   and we just shoot coffeemakers Adam all [TS]

00:52:05   afternoon [TS]

00:52:06   who wouldn't who pay fifteen dollars to [TS]

00:52:10   shoot a coffeemaker battle cry is the [TS]

00:52:14   money-making scheme if we've ever had [TS]

00:52:16   one it would be really find the glass [TS]

00:52:18   shatter yeah the whole thing I mean [TS]

00:52:20   think about the think about the [TS]

00:52:21   satisfying impact about the entire [TS]

00:52:24   possible paper and half the time like [TS]

00:52:26   that the carafe would come separated [TS]

00:52:28   from the from the the launch system the [TS]

00:52:33   heating system somewhere in midair and [TS]

00:52:36   you would end up with a kind of shrapnel [TS]

00:52:37   effect a great shot effect i think it's [TS]

00:52:42   a no-brainer people would absolutely do [TS]

00:52:44   that they would people would people will [TS]

00:52:45   come and you get the price of admission [TS]

00:52:46   could be bring an old coffee maker bring [TS]

00:52:49   an old well wait a minute no we want to [TS]

00:52:50   make a little money to know Gotye [TS]

00:52:52   because we have to pay for the pneumatic [TS]

00:52:54   can use can you fire your old coffee [TS]

00:52:57   maker and and maybe buy a new one made [TS]

00:52:59   as part of the process [TS]

00:53:00   maybe maybe if you because there's so [TS]

00:53:02   many crappy think about like thinking [TS]

00:53:04   about like you come in you're gonna buy [TS]

00:53:06   a tivo but you get to fire your old VHS [TS]

00:53:09   a VW okay but wait a minute what about [TS]

00:53:11   what see what I'm hoping that people [TS]

00:53:13   will come with like eight coffeemakers [TS]

00:53:15   we're solving for solving a problem for [TS]

00:53:17   people something least three problems by [TS]

00:53:18   my reckoning it all around America there [TS]

00:53:20   have got to be used coffee makers [TS]

00:53:22   sitting in people's bottom cupboards [TS]

00:53:25   littering the church basements of [TS]

00:53:27   america that's right and so the thing is [TS]

00:53:29   yes I think we should sell new coffee [TS]

00:53:31   maybe you should you should sell your [TS]

00:53:33   cuisinart coffee maker at the at the [TS]

00:53:35   like there should be a gift shop and [TS]

00:58:48   condescending to me every year there's [TS]

00:58:50   something about a tease culture that was [TS]

00:58:55   still so in between so him between the [TS]

00:59:01   monkey bars where the be like rampant [TS]

00:59:07   ignorance and like casual racism of the [TS]

00:59:13   sixties and seventies was still like it [TS]

00:59:17   was still what what the culture was [TS]

00:59:19   soaking in but there was all this new [TS]

00:59:22   flip agility is only 10 years old that [TS]

00:59:28   nobody could quite figure out like how [TS]

01:00:04   presumption that Christmas even applies [TS]

01:00:09   to fully half of the continent of Africa [TS]

01:00:12   I've thought about this a lot and I [TS]

01:00:14   think the reason they did that is [TS]

01:00:15   because the donations were going to cut [TS]

01:00:17   become from people who love Christmas [TS]

01:00:18   and want people to be happy so I kind of [TS]

01:00:20   get that yeah yeah but like do they know [TS]

01:00:24   it's Christmas [TS]

01:00:25   it's like it's the whole just the title [TS]
