00:00:12.000 –> 00:00:18.000
As well as

00:00:18.000 –> 00:00:22.000
And also too don’t forget about our, we have our own Mastodon instance now,

00:00:22.000 –> 00:00:27.000
our own community instance. If you go to

00:00:27.000 –> 00:00:31.000
again, you can join in there, that’s our community

00:00:31.000 –> 00:00:35.000
not only a forum, it’s a Mastodon instance, kind of like

00:00:35.000 –> 00:00:39.000
what, kind of like a Twitter instance, you’ll see what it’s like when you get there.

00:00:39.000 –> 00:00:43.000
It’s very nice, a lot of fun, a lot of good people in there. And go ahead and join the community

00:00:43.000 –> 00:00:47.000
and we’d appreciate it, it’d be a lot of fun. So folks,

00:00:47.000 –> 00:00:51.000
I’ve been off for a little while, I think my goal for

00:00:51.000 –> 00:00:55.000
the new year should be to go ahead and try to do consistency. It’s been tough,

00:00:55.000 –> 00:00:59.000
I’ve got some new recording equipment coming as well for the car when I’m on the go.

00:00:59.000 –> 00:01:03.000
But I like my home studio set up, that’s kind of my problem.

00:01:03.000 –> 00:01:07.000
I get the best audio, best sound, but I guess if you don’t get a show out there, it’s no point of having

00:01:07.000 –> 00:01:11.000
the best equipment. But I do have some other equipment coming, but

00:01:11.000 –> 00:01:15.000
would like to go ahead and talk about it, been out for a little bit, a lot of stuff going on.

00:01:15.000 –> 00:01:19.000
Obviously I’ve been out because I had

00:01:19.000 –> 00:01:23.000
back surgery and some other stuff going on.

00:01:23.000 –> 00:01:27.000
I’ve been kind of off the grid for a while, but

00:01:27.000 –> 00:01:31.000
while I was out I started my own Mastodon and some of that so I could communicate with people

00:01:31.000 –> 00:01:35.000
and kind of start doing my own thing.

00:01:35.000 –> 00:01:39.000
I’ve had a large community on Twitter and on Facebook and stuff like that, but

00:01:39.000 –> 00:01:43.000
started doing Mastodon because we kind of don’t know what’s

00:01:43.000 –> 00:01:47.000
going on with Twitter over the next couple of years.

00:01:47.000 –> 00:01:51.000
I know Elon Musk bought it and he’s trying to

00:01:51.000 –> 00:01:55.000
make it an open platform and trying to do a lot

00:01:55.000 –> 00:01:59.000
of things, but it’s just really not working out for them.

00:01:59.000 –> 00:02:03.000
Laid off a lot of staff, unfortunately those people all lost their jobs, I feel bad

00:02:03.000 –> 00:02:07.000
for them. And it’s tough to get a job too in Silicon Valley, a lot of

00:02:07.000 –> 00:02:11.000
tech companies have been laying off, especially with this wacky economy

00:02:11.000 –> 00:02:15.000
that’s going on right now with inflation and stuff like that. They’re doing a lot of stuff

00:02:15.000 –> 00:02:19.000
to try to go ahead and fight the inflation, it’s not working out real well.

00:02:19.000 –> 00:02:23.000
A lot of those folks lost their jobs, but then also too laying off because he’s trying to

00:02:23.000 –> 00:02:27.000
kind of try to cut back and trying to

00:02:27.000 –> 00:02:31.000
kind of make a go of this thing. So we’ll see what happens

00:02:31.000 –> 00:02:35.000
going forward. He says he wants to either make it an open platform or

00:02:35.000 –> 00:02:39.000
he wants to make it an app that’s monetized.

00:02:39.000 –> 00:02:43.000
He tried doing the whole verification checkmark,

00:02:43.000 –> 00:02:47.000
that didn’t work out like he thought it was going to work out. So there’s

00:02:47.000 –> 00:02:51.000
quite a bit going on over there. I think he’s

00:02:51.000 –> 00:02:55.000
definitely for 22 billion, or 42 billion, something that he bought it for.

00:02:55.000 –> 00:02:59.000
So I’m curious to see now what he’s going to do

00:02:59.000 –> 00:03:03.000
to try to go ahead and monetize that, because that is, I know they said

00:03:03.000 –> 00:03:07.000
just alone, the interest on his

00:03:07.000 –> 00:03:11.000
loans is over a billion dollars a year. So that’s

00:03:11.000 –> 00:03:15.000
no joke, he leveraged Tesla to buy it. And now you have this

00:03:15.000 –> 00:03:19.000
other thing that I was talking about. They have this other platform called Mastinow

00:03:19.000 –> 00:03:23.000
which was kind of built on the ActivityPub old

00:03:23.000 –> 00:03:27.000
platform from years ago. I don’t expect you guys to know that. I’m a computer programmer,

00:03:27.000 –> 00:03:31.000
that’s what I do, so I’m a little more familiar with this stuff than a lot of people are.

00:03:31.000 –> 00:03:35.000
I started out my own instance just because I wanted to kind of do my own thing

00:03:35.000 –> 00:03:39.000
and I was kind of, you know, I have a lot of followers, a lot of you guys listen

00:03:39.000 –> 00:03:43.000
and I’m so grateful for that, but I was thinking of building a following

00:03:43.000 –> 00:03:47.000
on other people’s platform and then when they decided to change things, it hurts my following

00:03:47.000 –> 00:03:51.000
and hurts us and really hurts the followers of the show and stuff. So that’s why I said

00:03:51.000 –> 00:03:55.000
you know what, this year we’re going to do something different, I’m going to go ahead

00:03:55.000 –> 00:03:59.000
and we’re going to build our own following and our own platform, kind of like how Gabb

00:03:59.000 –> 00:04:03.000
and Parler did it. And you know, we’re going to kind of

00:04:03.000 –> 00:04:07.000
do that. A lot of you guys that aren’t familiar

00:04:07.000 –> 00:04:11.000
with the platform, if you go over to True Souls, which is Trump’s thing,

00:04:11.000 –> 00:04:15.000
it’s very, very similar looking to that. I’m working

00:04:15.000 –> 00:04:19.000
on customizing it and I’m actually going to want to put an app out with a link,

00:04:19.000 –> 00:04:23.000
it’s kind of something I’ve been working on on the side with other things, I want to put an app out for it

00:04:23.000 –> 00:04:27.000
where you’ll be able to not only tweet and do all that or toot

00:04:27.000 –> 00:04:31.000
or whatever you want to call it on the platform, but then you’ll be able to look at

00:04:31.000 –> 00:04:35.000
old episodes and videos, stuff like that, I’m working on it, it’s going to be a lot of work and something I’ve been

00:04:35.000 –> 00:04:39.000
kind of working on on the side and hopefully we get to it. Right now we have a web interface

00:04:39.000 –> 00:04:43.000
if you download any of the Maston apps, just type in the instance

00:04:43.000 –> 00:04:47.000
you can go ahead and join with that, so I appreciate all that.

00:04:47.000 –> 00:04:51.000
Also, to folks, we have, like I said, other stuff going on

00:04:51.000 –> 00:04:55.000
like I said, a lot of layoffs on social media, unfortunately I think this is still the fallout

00:04:55.000 –> 00:04:59.000
from COVID, you know, you’re dealing with companies like

00:04:59.000 –> 00:05:03.000
Facebook laid off what, 11,000 people, Twitter laid

00:05:03.000 –> 00:05:07.000
off people, that’s because of the whole situation with Twitter, but I think Uber laid

00:05:07.000 –> 00:05:11.000
off, Facebook laid off,

00:05:11.000 –> 00:05:15.000
I think Snapchat did, and I think Microsoft is

00:05:15.000 –> 00:05:19.000
got, I know Microsoft, I don’t think they laid off, they have a hiring freeze, stuff like that

00:05:19.000 –> 00:05:23.000
so a lot of these companies, you know, a lot of companies

00:05:23.000 –> 00:05:27.000
laying off right now, and luckily enough in California they do have a law that you

00:05:27.000 –> 00:05:31.000
have to give somebody two to three months severance pay as part of any layoffs

00:05:31.000 –> 00:05:35.000
actually I didn’t know that, that’s something I learned from a friend of mine that’s a lawyer

00:05:35.000 –> 00:05:39.000
she was telling me all about it, there’s something called the Warren Act, and you have to, if you lay

00:05:39.000 –> 00:05:43.000
somebody off in California, you must give them, you have to give them two to

00:05:43.000 –> 00:05:47.000
three months severance pay, that’s why all those people that got laid off for Twitter, even though he laid them off

00:05:47.000 –> 00:05:51.000
and he is saving money on benefit packages and stuff like that, but a lot of those people

00:05:51.000 –> 00:05:55.000
are going to get months of severance pay, those people from Facebook, all of them are getting two, three months

00:05:55.000 –> 00:05:59.000
severance pay, so if I’m not mistaken too, I think Spotify might even be

00:05:59.000 –> 00:06:03.000
laying off as well, so a lot of stuff going on right now

00:06:03.000 –> 00:06:07.000
I almost actually almost took a job at Spotify a couple months ago, I’m glad I didn’t

00:06:07.000 –> 00:06:11.000
stay where I was at because I wanted health coverage, I had a back surgery

00:06:11.000 –> 00:06:15.000
L4, L5, and L3, you know, a lot of people asked

00:06:15.000 –> 00:06:19.000
what happened, and all of you guys were great when I wasn’t podcasting, asked me what happened, just

00:06:19.000 –> 00:06:23.000
years of wear and tear, man, working on the homestead, working on our house at the Fixer Upper I’ve been talking about

00:06:23.000 –> 00:06:27.000
for years, all those kinds of things, you know, it just was

00:06:27.000 –> 00:06:31.000
years of wear and tear, so unfortunately that kind of

00:06:31.000 –> 00:06:35.000
stuff does happen, and luckily enough we have excellent surgeons and stuff

00:06:35.000 –> 00:06:39.000
I was able to kind of put Humpty Dumpty back together, if any of you guys that live in

00:06:39.000 –> 00:06:43.000
Pennsylvania, up in the northeast section where I live up here, Dr. Gillick, he’s an

00:06:43.000 –> 00:06:47.000
excellent, excellent back surgeon, came, highly recommended, I want to

00:06:47.000 –> 00:06:51.000
plug him here, I know he’s got a very busy practice anyway, he probably doesn’t need the publicity from me, but

00:06:51.000 –> 00:06:55.000
I do want to give a shout out to him only because, you know, he did so much

00:06:55.000 –> 00:06:59.000
work on me, and, you know, I was, you know, he

00:06:59.000 –> 00:07:03.000
said to me it was pretty bad, and he doesn’t know why I waited that long, and

00:07:03.000 –> 00:07:07.000
thankfully enough, you know, he was able to kind of put me back together, so I want to thank him publicly here on the podcast

00:07:07.000 –> 00:07:11.000
and just like I said, Dr. Gillick, he’s over in Scranton,

00:07:11.000 –> 00:07:15.000
Scranton Orthopaedics, and I thank him quite a bit, he was able, just

00:07:15.000 –> 00:07:19.000
a better quality of life, not in the pain I was in, I can, you know, be able to take my kids

00:07:19.000 –> 00:07:23.000
for a walk, be able to do stuff out on the homestead here, be able to go hunting, stuff like that, stuff that I haven’t

00:07:23.000 –> 00:07:27.000
been able to do because I just can’t walk, but let me tell you, I’ve been wonderful, I’ve been able to

00:07:27.000 –> 00:07:31.000
walk around some of that, still recuperating a little bit, but I’m able to get back to

00:07:31.000 –> 00:07:35.000
work and able to do some things I’m able to do, and lucky enough, I was able to take a medical leave,

00:07:35.000 –> 00:07:39.000
talk about being prepped, thanks to

00:07:39.000 –> 00:07:43.000
you know, my rentals, and having a lot of sick time because I don’t take off from

00:07:43.000 –> 00:07:47.000
work unless I have to, stuff like that in my side business, and stuff like that, we were able to

00:07:47.000 –> 00:07:51.000
take a couple months off from work and still be able to keep a roof over our heads,

00:07:51.000 –> 00:07:55.000
and all that, so I’m very, very grateful. You know, sometimes, like I said, I’ve talked to you guys many

00:07:55.000 –> 00:07:59.000
times before about this, when it comes to survival and prepping and all that kind of stuff,

00:07:59.000 –> 00:08:03.000
it’s not always being prepped for the zombie apocalypse

00:08:03.000 –> 00:08:07.000
that’s going to come, but sometimes it’s being prepped for life stuff that can happen,

00:08:07.000 –> 00:08:11.000
who knew I was going to have surgery that was going to take me out for three months,

00:08:11.000 –> 00:08:15.000
you know, so it’s just very important that you’re prepared

00:08:15.000 –> 00:08:19.000
financially, always, if you can be, I know it’s tough, people live paycheck to paycheck, especially

00:08:19.000 –> 00:08:23.000
right now with the cost of living going up so much, and you know,

00:08:23.000 –> 00:08:27.000
it’s crazy to think about, think of how much our cost of living has gone up,

00:08:27.000 –> 00:08:31.000
and then you think about people like in England, the place that we’re

00:08:31.000 –> 00:08:35.000
going, there’s an inflation of 12 and 14 percent, we’re complaining here about

00:08:35.000 –> 00:08:39.000
7 or 8, and they’re seeing 14, maybe 14 percent, that’s huge.

00:08:39.000 –> 00:08:43.000
So, you know, it’s pretty nuts, and I think you guys have listened

00:08:43.000 –> 00:08:47.000
to me long enough to know that I’m one of those preppers that, you know, I’m not

00:08:47.000 –> 00:08:51.000
right wing, I’m not left wing, I’m not, you know, the world’s coming to an end, and I’m not

00:08:51.000 –> 00:08:55.000
one of those guys, I’m one of those people that, you know, look at it as

00:08:55.000 –> 00:08:59.000
you know, kind of down the middle and all that, and you know, it’s

00:08:59.000 –> 00:09:03.000
just one of those things sometimes where, you know, look at this, I mean, I could have had as much

00:09:03.000 –> 00:09:07.000
food stocked up as we wanted at the end of the day, if we can’t pay the bills, we can’t pay the bills, I mean, that’s, you know,

00:09:07.000 –> 00:09:11.000
it’s one of those kinds of things where sometimes you have to prep not only just for the end of the world,

00:09:11.000 –> 00:09:15.000
maybe sometimes, or for a survival situation, but sometimes just financially

00:09:15.000 –> 00:09:19.000
for stuff that happens like this. At times, a lot of people have brought this up to me too

00:09:19.000 –> 00:09:23.000
over the years that have watched, listened to the show, and watched my YouTube videos, some of that, that

00:09:23.000 –> 00:09:27.000
they think of the show kind of more as a business show

00:09:27.000 –> 00:09:31.000
more than like a prepper show, and I really want to thank you for that,

00:09:31.000 –> 00:09:35.000
it really means a lot to, you know, the fact that people listen that much and they have opinions because they’ve

00:09:35.000 –> 00:09:39.000
listened to so many shows, I really appreciate all of that from all of you guys,

00:09:39.000 –> 00:09:43.000
and I do really appreciate you guys asking, a lot of people, a lot of listeners

00:09:43.000 –> 00:09:47.000
reached out to me and asked me how I was doing, so I really, really do appreciate that.

00:09:47.000 –> 00:09:51.000
So while I was gone, we also had the elections,

00:09:51.000 –> 00:09:55.000
I’m in Pennsylvania here, and we went blue, we have a blue, we’re going to have

00:09:55.000 –> 00:09:59.000
a Democratic governor and a Democratic

00:09:59.000 –> 00:10:03.000
Senator now, one thing I’m having, I hate, I, you know,

00:10:03.000 –> 00:10:07.000
I didn’t like Oz to begin with, to be honest with you, I really didn’t, he has no loyalty,

00:10:07.000 –> 00:10:11.000
he ran in New Jersey, he ran in Delaware, and now they’re saying he might

00:10:11.000 –> 00:10:15.000
even try to run in New York or one of those other states, so I heard that

00:10:15.000 –> 00:10:19.000
Donald Trump was very upset about, he wanted Oz to get in because he wanted,

00:10:19.000 –> 00:10:23.000
I guess, wanted to kind of keep the Senate in

00:10:23.000 –> 00:10:27.000
Democrats’ favor, so, you know, they didn’t,

00:10:27.000 –> 00:10:31.000
you know, things didn’t go how the Republicans planned, but I think they hurt themselves a lot with that

00:10:31.000 –> 00:10:35.000
overturning that road versus way thing.

00:10:35.000 –> 00:10:39.000
You know, I got to be honest with you, a lot of you guys listen, don’t agree with me on that, and that’s fine,

00:10:39.000 –> 00:10:43.000
I don’t believe the government has any right to tell you that kind of stuff, whether you can or

00:10:43.000 –> 00:10:47.000
cannot have an abortion, I don’t believe in that. The government has no right to tell you what you can

00:10:47.000 –> 00:10:51.000
do with your body, same thing goes with the vaccine, the government has no right to tell you if you

00:10:51.000 –> 00:10:55.000
need a vaccine or not, they have no right to tell you if you need to

00:10:55.000 –> 00:10:59.000
wear a mask or not, they have no right to tell you during the COVID that you’re in a

00:10:59.000 –> 00:11:03.000
central business and you’re not, they don’t have a right to do any of that, that’s why I

00:11:03.000 –> 00:11:07.000
say I’m very down, people say to me all the time, you’re very down on both sides, I take whatever side is right,

00:11:07.000 –> 00:11:11.000
you have the side, you have the rights to your body

00:11:11.000 –> 00:11:15.000
and to do what you want with your body, who the hell is the government to say, no you can’t do that,

00:11:15.000 –> 00:11:19.000
no you can’t do that, no you can’t, no, no, the government has no right to say

00:11:19.000 –> 00:11:23.000
you can’t get an abortion, you can’t get, no, who the government, why does the government have rights,

00:11:23.000 –> 00:11:27.000
why does a bunch of old guys in Congress who are all in

00:11:27.000 –> 00:11:31.000
their 60s and 70s and 80s have rights to tell my daughters what they can and can’t do with their bodies?

00:11:31.000 –> 00:11:35.000
I don’t believe in that crap. The same thing, I don’t believe that there’s a

00:11:35.000 –> 00:11:39.000
right for the government to tell me to have a vaccine or tell me I can’t keep my business open during COVID,

00:11:39.000 –> 00:11:43.000
no, I mean, no, the government’s job is to govern, not to tell me what

00:11:43.000 –> 00:11:47.000
I can and can’t do with my body or my land

00:11:47.000 –> 00:11:51.000
or my, no, believe that’s BS man,

00:11:51.000 –> 00:11:55.000
plain and simple, the government doesn’t have a right to tell me that kind of crap,

00:11:55.000 –> 00:11:59.000
that’s not right, I don’t care what anybody else says, oh do you vote Democrat? No,

00:11:59.000 –> 00:12:03.000
I voted for my, there’s no reason why the government

00:12:03.000 –> 00:12:07.000
has to butt their nose in this crap, it’s not their responsibility,

00:12:07.000 –> 00:12:11.000
come on, be real, just like the government doesn’t have a right to tell you you can’t have a gun,

00:12:11.000 –> 00:12:15.000
no, you have a right to have a, you have a second amendment right, you have a right to have a gun, you have a right to,

00:12:15.000 –> 00:12:19.000
you have a right to free speech, you have a right, I mean, it’s ridiculous,

00:12:19.000 –> 00:12:23.000
I don’t, I mean, I’m not, I don’t believe in hate speech, people that invoke violence, I don’t believe

00:12:23.000 –> 00:12:27.000
that’s enough free speech, free speech is the ability to say

00:12:27.000 –> 00:12:31.000
what you want to say, if I want to stand outside on the front of my porch and yell that I don’t, that I think

00:12:31.000 –> 00:12:35.000
abortion should be illegal and that we shouldn’t, you know,

00:12:35.000 –> 00:12:39.000
please, the same thing with drugs, come on, you can, they can make you make drugs illegal

00:12:39.000 –> 00:12:43.000
all they want, 10 day people that want to do drugs are going to do drugs, I mean, so you’re going to make abortion

00:12:43.000 –> 00:12:47.000
illegal, people that still want to get abortion are going to get abortion, it’s not, it’s going to do it, you know,

00:12:47.000 –> 00:12:51.000
that whole thing of, the whole thing with, well we’re going to make it illegal, well,

00:12:51.000 –> 00:12:55.000
people that want them are still going to get them, they’re just going to get them illegally,

00:12:55.000 –> 00:12:59.000
I mean, it’s ridiculous, this whole thing, just like, oh, we make, we make drugs illegal, yeah, but people

00:12:59.000 –> 00:13:03.000
still want drugs to get them, doesn’t mean, just because you make drugs illegal doesn’t mean nobody has

00:13:03.000 –> 00:13:07.000
to do drugs, people do drugs all the time, please, it’s ridiculous, it’s BS, come on,

00:13:07.000 –> 00:13:11.000
the government, the government sticks their nose in too much crap that they don’t need to stick their nose in,

00:13:11.000 –> 00:13:15.000
and it’s a bunch of these old people in Congress that should not be making

00:13:15.000 –> 00:13:19.000
decisions, I mean, really, I mean, oh, well, hey, I don’t do

00:13:19.000 –> 00:13:23.000
drugs, I don’t partake in drugs, but there are a lot of people that I know that do drugs, just because you make it

00:13:23.000 –> 00:13:27.000
legal does not mean that they’re not going to do it, I mean, my God, Joe Rogan is in Texas

00:13:27.000 –> 00:13:31.000
and he openly smokes pot on his podcast all the time, pot’s illegal

00:13:31.000 –> 00:13:35.000
in Texas, but I still see Rogan doing it, I mean, you know what I’m saying, come on, it’s ridiculous,

00:13:35.000 –> 00:13:39.000
it’s such BS, and he’s even said the same thing on his show, that it’s such

00:13:39.000 –> 00:13:43.000
BS that people, you know, they do this crap, and it’s, it’s ridiculous,

00:13:43.000 –> 00:13:47.000
it’s a load of crap, I don’t believe in it, the government

00:13:47.000 –> 00:13:51.000
has rights to do governing things, not to tell you

00:13:51.000 –> 00:13:55.000
what you can to do with your business, your body, please, come on,

00:13:55.000 –> 00:13:59.000
just like I don’t believe, oh, you know, believe me, I’m not,

00:13:59.000 –> 00:14:03.000
I’m pro, you know, I’m pro, I’m not, people say, oh, you’re anti-vax,

00:14:03.000 –> 00:14:07.000
I’m not anti-vax, I’m pro-vaccines that can, you know, if you,

00:14:07.000 –> 00:14:11.000
hey, I got the vaccine, I think, you know, I think that it’s just like a flu shot,

00:14:11.000 –> 00:14:15.000
I’ll get it, whatever, I don’t care, nobody told me how to get it, I chose to get it

00:14:15.000 –> 00:14:19.000
because I didn’t want to get sick, okay, my wife got COVID and she got

00:14:19.000 –> 00:14:23.000
extremely ill, the more she hospitalized for ten days, okay, so me as a responsible

00:14:23.000 –> 00:14:27.000
spouse, I went and got the shot so that I would not,

00:14:27.000 –> 00:14:31.000
I wouldn’t get as sick so I could help her, okay, and my kids, my oldest one

00:14:31.000 –> 00:14:35.000
got it, my youngest one hasn’t yet, she’s still too young yet, but, okay, we got it,

00:14:35.000 –> 00:14:39.000
I didn’t get it because the government told me to do it, I did it because I wanted to do it, okay, because I believe

00:14:39.000 –> 00:14:43.000
that a shot could help save my wife’s life, save my kids, you know,

00:14:43.000 –> 00:14:47.000
my one daughter got very sick from the COVID, not as bad as my wife, but, so we did what

00:14:47.000 –> 00:14:51.000
we thought was right for us, we did it, the government didn’t tell us we had to,

00:14:51.000 –> 00:14:55.000
we did it, okay, that’s the difference, forcing

00:14:55.000 –> 00:14:59.000
people to do it, saying you have to get a vaccine to go back to work, I don’t believe in that,

00:14:59.000 –> 00:15:03.000
corporations and all that, they don’t have the right to tell you that, I’m sorry, they don’t,

00:15:03.000 –> 00:15:07.000
come on, be real, who are you, who are you to tell me I have to get something so I can go to

00:15:07.000 –> 00:15:11.000
work, I’m worried, you know, I don’t believe in that shit, I don’t, I don’t believe in that,

00:15:11.000 –> 00:15:15.000
just like I don’t believe in this whole thing now, they’re trying to ban drug tests on people that are getting

00:15:15.000 –> 00:15:19.000
government, if you want to go on welfare in certain states, you have to get a drug test, people are like

00:15:19.000 –> 00:15:23.000
that’s illegal, please, I mean, you know,

00:15:23.000 –> 00:15:27.000
I have to get a drug test to go to work, so you have to get, you know, if I have to get a drug test

00:15:27.000 –> 00:15:31.000
to go to work, you should have to go, you should be able to have to pass a drug test to get money from

00:15:31.000 –> 00:15:35.000
the government, I believe in that, I mean, do I ever think that it’s right that my company makes you

00:15:35.000 –> 00:15:39.000
get a drug test to work, no, but unfortunately if I want to work, I got to do it,

00:15:39.000 –> 00:15:43.000
and I’m going to unfortunately have to deal with that if I want to work at that job, I mean,

00:15:43.000 –> 00:15:47.000
hey, that’s, you know, and that’s, and that government, that company has a right,

00:15:47.000 –> 00:15:51.000
does have a right to tell you to get it, because, you know,

00:15:51.000 –> 00:15:55.000
they have their rules, and if you want this job that pays very good to support your family,

00:15:55.000 –> 00:15:59.000
you’re going to have to put up with it, and I mean, you know, and they do have a right to do that,

00:15:59.000 –> 00:16:03.000
do I think it’s right? No, but they have a right to do that, you know,

00:16:03.000 –> 00:16:07.000
because they’re an independent company, so I mean, you know, it depends, you know,

00:16:07.000 –> 00:16:11.000
I’m more pro of let

00:16:11.000 –> 00:16:15.000
people do what they want, and let people do it on their own terms,

00:16:15.000 –> 00:16:19.000
than I am forcing people, because I don’t

00:16:19.000 –> 00:16:23.000
think it’s right to force anybody to do anything, you know, and I’ve said this once before,

00:16:23.000 –> 00:16:27.000
that’s why, you know, a lot of people upset me, because I’ve even said, you know,

00:16:27.000 –> 00:16:31.000
that I was, you know, I think I was voting Democrats, and I’m like, why even, first of all,

00:16:31.000 –> 00:16:35.000
Oz has no loyalty to Pennsylvania, he’s only running because he wants to get in, in some

00:16:35.000 –> 00:16:39.000
state, he doesn’t care about Pennsylvania, he ran in two other states

00:16:39.000 –> 00:16:43.000
before he ran in Pennsylvania, he doesn’t even live here, by the way, his home,

00:16:43.000 –> 00:16:47.000
it’s basically a house he never lives in up here, okay, it’s ridiculous,

00:16:47.000 –> 00:16:51.000
well, I’m not going to vote, he doesn’t care about Pennsylvania, he cares about getting into politics,

00:16:51.000 –> 00:16:55.000
you know, and, you know, and I don’t, I mean,

00:16:55.000 –> 00:16:59.000
I’m not a big fan of Biden, but I’m not a big fan of people that attack

00:16:59.000 –> 00:17:03.000
the Capitol building either, so I mean, you know, you can look at it either way, I mean,

00:17:03.000 –> 00:17:07.000
a lot of people listen to this show, say to me all the time, well, I can’t see, I don’t know if you’re on the right or the left, no, I’m down the middle,

00:17:07.000 –> 00:17:11.000
I’m down the middle in that, I’m for people, not for

00:17:11.000 –> 00:17:15.000
the government, you want to say what side

00:17:15.000 –> 00:17:19.000
I am, I’m on the side of the people, because I don’t think it’s right that a lot of things that they force people to do.

00:17:19.000 –> 00:17:23.000
I mean, just like, I mean, look at your paycheck, watch what you get every

00:17:23.000 –> 00:17:27.000
weekend, watch how much the government takes, and where does that money go, I’d hate to help you in May, folks,

00:17:27.000 –> 00:17:31.000
it’s to fund all these stupid political things that they’re doing,

00:17:31.000 –> 00:17:35.000
now granted, a fifth of taxpayer money does go to defense,

00:17:35.000 –> 00:17:39.000
which I do believe that we should, because, I mean, God forbid after 9/11,

00:17:39.000 –> 00:17:43.000
nobody should have to go through that, and I mean, that’s, I don’t ever want to see another

00:17:43.000 –> 00:17:47.000
11 again, so, you know, I do believe we need to be spending money on defense,

00:17:47.000 –> 00:17:51.000
but, I mean, watch where your paycheck, watch your paycheck go other places,

00:17:51.000 –> 00:17:55.000
watch, you know, it can rile me up, because, you know,

00:17:55.000 –> 00:17:59.000
watch how much money you bring, you and I bring in, and watch how much goes to taxes,

00:17:59.000 –> 00:18:03.000
it’s sad, I mean, watch how much your paycheck is chewed up by all the taxes,

00:18:03.000 –> 00:18:07.000
and that’s going to be under any president, by the way, it doesn’t matter Democrat or

00:18:07.000 –> 00:18:11.000
Republican, they’re going to keep taking and taking and taking as much as they can, no matter what,

00:18:11.000 –> 00:18:15.000
no matter what side of the aisle you’re on. And now you’ve got this other crap, now you’ve got

00:18:15.000 –> 00:18:19.000
a million people running for president now this year, coming up again,

00:18:19.000 –> 00:18:23.000
you’ve got Donald Trump who says he’s going to run again for a second term,

00:18:23.000 –> 00:18:27.000
you’ve got Kanye who’s going to run, and apparently he’s going to buy Gab, I think they’re saying,

00:18:27.000 –> 00:18:31.000
for those of you that don’t know, Gab was actually a Mastodon, and since back in the day,

00:18:31.000 –> 00:18:35.000
those of you that weren’t Gab back in the day, you probably do remember it was a Mastodon

00:18:35.000 –> 00:18:39.000
instance, so it’s kind of the same thing now, but yeah, he’s running for, he’s saying he’s

00:18:39.000 –> 00:18:43.000
running for president, it looks like the governor from Florida is going to run,

00:18:43.000 –> 00:18:47.000
DeSantis, I know he’s got a lot of backing from people, from a lot of big political names,

00:18:47.000 –> 00:18:51.000
Alex Jones, he’s got Megyn Kelly, a couple big political

00:18:51.000 –> 00:18:55.000
radio hosts, I’m not sure, I think

00:18:55.000 –> 00:18:59.000
Hannity might have endorsed him too, so he’s got a lot of support going forward, he

00:18:59.000 –> 00:19:03.000
really does, but he’s another one that

00:19:03.000 –> 00:19:07.000
I think that, you know, I think it’s going to be,

00:19:07.000 –> 00:19:11.000
I really, and I know you guys, a lot of you guys, I know some of you guys listen to

00:19:11.000 –> 00:19:15.000
a little bit on the younger side, some of you guys a little bit on the older side, but I

00:19:15.000 –> 00:19:19.000
know a couple of you guys that do remember the election back in during the Clinton

00:19:19.000 –> 00:19:23.000
and George Bush administration, one of the things that really

00:19:23.000 –> 00:19:27.000
messed up Bush Sr. from getting in a second term was

00:19:27.000 –> 00:19:31.000
when, I think it was Al Gore ran, and that split the Republican party,

00:19:31.000 –> 00:19:35.000
I hate to say that, I think that’s what’s going to happen this time again, and I think we’re going to get Biden

00:19:35.000 –> 00:19:39.000
for another couple more years, because what I think is going to happen, Trump’s going to

00:19:39.000 –> 00:19:43.000
run either way, I think Kanye’s going to run either way, and then

00:19:43.000 –> 00:19:47.000
you’re going to have probably DeSantis running, and you’re going to have two or three people on the Republican ballot, which is

00:19:47.000 –> 00:19:51.000
almost going to guarantee a Democrat gets in, so I mean, that could

00:19:51.000 –> 00:19:55.000
be a good thing and a bad thing, but I think that is what’s going to happen

00:19:55.000 –> 00:19:59.000
now, I just think there’s so much split going on in the party

00:19:59.000 –> 00:20:03.000
right now that I don’t think either way it’s going to really matter, but like I said, I think that

00:20:03.000 –> 00:20:07.000
is what’s going to happen going forward, I do think it’s going to be this year’s election,

00:20:07.000 –> 00:20:11.000
because I think Trump’s going to run whether he gets the nomination or not,

00:20:11.000 –> 00:20:15.000
and I do think that, that Kanye, and the thing that

00:20:15.000 –> 00:20:19.000
scares me about Kanye, he’s got a lot of support, he does,

00:20:19.000 –> 00:20:23.000
I mean, I remember when he had a tax bill, he co-funded me, he was like what, like millions

00:20:23.000 –> 00:20:27.000
and millions of dollars of tax money, so I do think he’s going to be able to run

00:20:27.000 –> 00:20:31.000
and I think either way, he’s going to, I think he’s going to have a lot of support,

00:20:31.000 –> 00:20:35.000
whether or not he’s with the party or not, he’s still going to get a lot of support.

00:20:35.000 –> 00:20:39.000
By the way, public service announcement,

00:20:39.000 –> 00:20:43.000
Dunkin Donuts now has the peppermint lattes again, I’m hooked on those things again, it was the pumpkin

00:20:43.000 –> 00:20:47.000
spice ones now, it’s the peppermint latte, so for those of you guys that are listening,

00:20:47.000 –> 00:20:51.000
peppermint lattes are back, so

00:20:51.000 –> 00:20:55.000
good time, but I do think, I do think Kanye is going to run, and I do think

00:20:55.000 –> 00:20:59.000
he’s going to have a lot of support, and you know probably Kim is going to, Kim Kardashian

00:20:59.000 –> 00:21:03.000
is going to probably support him too, and that’s going to be a big chunk of people,

00:21:03.000 –> 00:21:07.000
so I hate, I don’t like to think about it, but I have a feeling

00:21:07.000 –> 00:21:11.000
I have a feeling either he, if he runs, it’s going to be, I think it’s going to be him,

00:21:11.000 –> 00:21:15.000
Trump, and DeSantis running, I think it’s going to be all three of them running together,

00:21:15.000 –> 00:21:19.000
and I think they’re all going to run as Republicans, or they’re going to run as their own party,

00:21:19.000 –> 00:21:23.000
I don’t think Trump can get back in again, I really don’t, I think he’s got

00:21:23.000 –> 00:21:27.000
I mean he’s only got like 4 million followers on that true social platform

00:21:27.000 –> 00:21:31.000
now, compared to like the 100 million he had on Twitter, I just think he’s lost

00:21:31.000 –> 00:21:35.000
a lot of support, I think they’ve been slamming him pretty good the last couple of years on

00:21:35.000 –> 00:21:39.000
television, I just don’t see, I think he’s got a lot of too much

00:21:39.000 –> 00:21:43.000
baggage, I don’t think he’s going to get the, I mean he has a hardcore group of supporters, I honestly

00:21:43.000 –> 00:21:47.000
do believe that, but I don’t think he’s got enough to get in, he lost kind of that fringe

00:21:47.000 –> 00:21:51.000
voting, or the swing voters, I think with all the crap that’s went on

00:21:51.000 –> 00:21:55.000
especially now, after he didn’t get in and all that, so you know, and I

00:21:55.000 –> 00:21:59.000
don’t think, and I have a feeling it’s going to be DeSantis, and

00:21:59.000 –> 00:22:03.000
DeSantis has a lot of support, so especially after COVID and keeping his state open, wherever it is closed

00:22:03.000 –> 00:22:07.000
down, so I think he’s got a lot of support, and I do think it’s going to be

00:22:07.000 –> 00:22:11.000
and I do honestly think it’s going to be Kanye, so I think

00:22:11.000 –> 00:22:15.000
you have three people running on the Republican side, and you’re going to have, and that’s almost a guarantee that Biden’s

00:22:15.000 –> 00:22:19.000
going to get in if he runs again, which I think he is going to run again,

00:22:19.000 –> 00:22:23.000
so probably enough Democrats don’t want him in, which I do

00:22:23.000 –> 00:22:27.000
I am kind of surprised, like I said, I’m

00:22:27.000 –> 00:22:31.000
kind of surprised by that, a lot of his own party doesn’t want him in, they want somebody

00:22:31.000 –> 00:22:35.000
else, but you would think that they would want him to run

00:22:35.000 –> 00:22:39.000
again, get in, and then maybe come out of that, Kamala

00:22:39.000 –> 00:22:43.000
would run again, but apparently that’s not what they want

00:22:43.000 –> 00:22:47.000
so I don’t know, we’ll see what happens, but I think he has the right to rerun as

00:22:47.000 –> 00:22:51.000
a sitting president, the party can’t tell him, he listens to everything his party

00:22:51.000 –> 00:22:55.000
says, but you know, I don’t think that’s going to happen

00:22:55.000 –> 00:22:59.000
and I think they’re going to, they’re not going to, it would be very stupid for the Democrats

00:22:59.000 –> 00:23:03.000
to un-sit a sitting president. By the way, some of the

00:23:03.000 –> 00:23:07.000
things I do want to point out, talking about taxpayer money, a couple things I have on my list to talk

00:23:07.000 –> 00:23:11.000
about here, this one really annoyed me, apparently

00:23:11.000 –> 00:23:15.000
the Republicans now that they have the House, the majority, once they take over the House, which is going

00:23:15.000 –> 00:23:19.000
to be, I think in January they take over, I think, not yet, I think it’s going to be

00:23:19.000 –> 00:23:23.000
I think it’s a couple more weeks, they’re saying the first thing they’re going to do

00:23:23.000 –> 00:23:27.000
is investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop, they’re going to be investigating Hunter Biden

00:23:27.000 –> 00:23:31.000
I’m like, you know,

00:23:31.000 –> 00:23:35.000
I know a lot of people don’t like this guy, I’m not a big fan of his either, the whole

00:23:35.000 –> 00:23:39.000
thing about the laptop when he was running for president, now they’re saying they’re going to try to impeach Biden

00:23:39.000 –> 00:23:43.000
since they’re going to have the majority in the House, I just think that this

00:23:43.000 –> 00:23:47.000
again, this is another example of taxpayer money being wasted, I mean that whole investigation

00:23:47.000 –> 00:23:51.000
into Trump went nowhere, now they’re going to spend all this money investigating

00:23:51.000 –> 00:23:55.000
somebody’s laptop who is the son of the president, but

00:23:55.000 –> 00:23:59.000
not really, he’s not really involved in anything, the president does

00:23:59.000 –> 00:24:03.000
I just, I don’t know, I think this is going to be another

00:24:03.000 –> 00:24:07.000
tremendous waste of our financial resources now, and it’s

00:24:07.000 –> 00:24:11.000
going to be another tremendous waste of taxpayer money that could be going to more important things

00:24:11.000 –> 00:24:15.000
programs and stuff to help people during this tough

00:24:15.000 –> 00:24:19.000
time with the inflation that’s going up, which is basically the government’s fault because

00:24:19.000 –> 00:24:23.000
they kept pumping money into the economy during COVID so that it wouldn’t crash

00:24:23.000 –> 00:24:27.000
and now the side effect of that is massive inflation

00:24:27.000 –> 00:24:31.000
and so it’s kind of their problem to fix now, and the only thing they keep doing is

00:24:31.000 –> 00:24:35.000
raising interest rates, which unfortunately caused a lot of people I know’s mortgages to

00:24:35.000 –> 00:24:39.000
double, so all they’re doing by raising the interest rates is maybe they’re slowing down

00:24:39.000 –> 00:24:43.000
inflation but they’re also going to really hurt the housing market and they’re also going to cause

00:24:43.000 –> 00:24:47.000
a foreclosure probably on some people who can’t afford their house because their interest rates have gone up

00:24:47.000 –> 00:24:51.000
like three of them, I mean I have a friend of mine who literally

00:24:51.000 –> 00:24:55.000
since he bought his home three years ago, his mortgage rate has almost doubled, now granted he took an

00:24:55.000 –> 00:24:59.000
adjustable rate which is basically what a lot of the banks are giving out right now

00:24:59.000 –> 00:25:03.000
but yeah, nice isn’t it? So

00:25:03.000 –> 00:25:07.000
like I said, they keep upping the interest rate and all they’re doing is going to cause

00:25:07.000 –> 00:25:11.000
another housing bubble to explode again and we’re going to

00:25:11.000 –> 00:25:15.000
go back into the same thing we were in again in 2008, watch

00:25:15.000 –> 00:25:19.000
I hate to say that but I have a feeling that’s the rate we’re going unfortunately kids

00:25:19.000 –> 00:25:23.000
at least the job market is solid still, unfortunately according to the numbers

00:25:23.000 –> 00:25:27.000
we’ll see what happens with that, that can change pretty quickly

00:25:27.000 –> 00:25:31.000
so we have all that going on, and the government is more interested in investigating

00:25:31.000 –> 00:25:35.000
somebody’s laptop than they are in fixing the massive inflation problem that

00:25:35.000 –> 00:25:39.000
they cost, so it’ll be interesting to see

00:25:39.000 –> 00:25:43.000
what happens here over the next

00:25:43.000 –> 00:25:47.000
couple of months, we’ll see what happens, it’s probably going to be a couple of months

00:25:47.000 –> 00:25:51.000
because once they all get in then they got to pass a vote and all that

00:25:51.000 –> 00:25:55.000
I have a feeling you’re going to see, again

00:25:55.000 –> 00:25:59.000
this is what I talked about earlier in the podcast, the government is worried about what they

00:25:59.000 –> 00:26:03.000
want to worry about and they’re not worried about us, that is the thing I’m saying

00:26:03.000 –> 00:26:07.000
it’s a system that doesn’t work, they just keep worrying about their

00:26:07.000 –> 00:26:11.000
crap and they’re not worrying about the problems that they need to fix here in America

00:26:11.000 –> 00:26:15.000
like inflation, like oil prices, hey have you filled your

00:26:15.000 –> 00:26:19.000
heating bill yet, have you had your first heating bill yet folks, it’s getting that November, it’s going to be

00:26:19.000 –> 00:26:23.000
December 1st here at the end of the, probably later in the week here, have you seen

00:26:23.000 –> 00:26:27.000
your heating bill lately, they’re going to investigate 100 Biden’s laptop

00:26:27.000 –> 00:26:31.000
doesn’t matter that you’re paying $3 and change for heat or oil or $4 for oil

00:26:31.000 –> 00:26:35.000
doesn’t matter that, let’s check out this kid’s laptop, I mean it doesn’t, again it’s a system

00:26:35.000 –> 00:26:39.000
that I feel is broke and it’s not working, which is why I’m getting so annoyed about it

00:26:39.000 –> 00:26:43.000
I mean really, I mean,

00:26:43.000 –> 00:26:47.000
it’s costing me double what I was paying last year to drive back and forth to work but hey

00:26:47.000 –> 00:26:51.000
let’s go ahead and let’s investigate this kid’s laptop, you know, let’s not worry

00:26:51.000 –> 00:26:55.000
about the freaking people in Ukraine that are suffering, I mean, you know thank

00:26:55.000 –> 00:26:59.000
God the Ukrainian army is fighting back like hell, but I mean, you know, let’s look, you know

00:26:59.000 –> 00:27:03.000
hey, come on, I mean, let’s worry about the bigger problems

00:27:03.000 –> 00:27:07.000
you know, and for some reason the Democrats are shoveling money into Ukraine, which I’m

00:27:07.000 –> 00:27:11.000
all for helping them, we owe this to them and here’s why, they surrendered

00:27:11.000 –> 00:27:15.000
a lot of their weapons to us during the Bush administration

00:27:15.000 –> 00:27:19.000
in exchange for our protection, so we

00:27:19.000 –> 00:27:23.000
actually kind of owe them, they surrendered their arsenal to us, their nuclear arsenal

00:27:23.000 –> 00:27:27.000
specifically to us in exchange for our protection, so we kind of owe this to them

00:27:27.000 –> 00:27:31.000
because Bush Jr. promised them this to them, probably

00:27:31.000 –> 00:27:35.000
right before 9/11 or right after 9/11, so

00:27:35.000 –> 00:27:39.000
you know, we kind of owe this to them

00:27:39.000 –> 00:27:43.000
and you know, the Democrats keep pumping money in there, but yet when they

00:27:43.000 –> 00:27:47.000
said, hey, can we have some accountability for where this money is going, all of a sudden

00:27:47.000 –> 00:27:51.000
the Democrats are like, no, no, no, no, no, well, that’s taxpayers’

00:27:51.000 –> 00:27:55.000
money, don’t you think we should kind of have some accountability for where it’s going?

00:27:55.000 –> 00:27:59.000
No, so the Democrats are all pumping money but they don’t want accountability for it, the Republicans don’t want

00:27:59.000 –> 00:28:03.000
to give money, or when they do, they want accountability for it, which I’m okay with the accountability part

00:28:03.000 –> 00:28:07.000
but, you know, we keep pumping money into a place

00:28:07.000 –> 00:28:11.000
but nobody knows where it’s going, so

00:28:11.000 –> 00:28:15.000
I don’t agree with that, I believe, I’m all for helping them, but I do think there needs to be some accountability

00:28:15.000 –> 00:28:19.000
but at least we know where the money’s going, but yeah,

00:28:19.000 –> 00:28:23.000
we have that, so now that we’re kind of caught up on the news

00:28:23.000 –> 00:28:27.000
here a little bit, every time I come on here I just rant

00:28:27.000 –> 00:28:31.000
I feel bad about that, but there used to be, there’s a podcast called Rant Nation

00:28:31.000 –> 00:28:35.000
it’s a great podcast, he does, he basically comes on every day, I think it’s like once a week

00:28:35.000 –> 00:28:39.000
or twice a week, he does the same thing, same type of show I do, but all he does is rant

00:28:39.000 –> 00:28:43.000
about everything, and I like his show, but I’m not going to lie, if you listen to it every week

00:28:43.000 –> 00:28:47.000
it does get a little repetitive, because unfortunately politics do change every week, but

00:28:47.000 –> 00:28:51.000
sometimes you just get tired of the dooming loom all the time

00:28:51.000 –> 00:28:55.000
let’s see, what else we have going on, so a couple things

00:28:55.000 –> 00:28:59.000
again, I have a whole list of stuff I want to talk about that I haven’t been on in a while, I am feeling pretty good though

00:28:59.000 –> 00:29:03.000
so thank you, and I wanted to say, I did save for, but I want to say again, thank you to all you guys that reached out to me

00:29:03.000 –> 00:29:07.000
I do appreciate it, I am feeling pretty good, and I really am grateful

00:29:07.000 –> 00:29:11.000
and I’m really happy I had the surgery done

00:29:11.000 –> 00:29:15.000
I’m still kind of recuperating, I can’t really, I can do a lot, but I still have to watch the lifting

00:29:15.000 –> 00:29:19.000
but everything else, I’m good

00:29:19.000 –> 00:29:23.000
so kind of a public service announcement too with this, I just want to make it a point

00:29:23.000 –> 00:29:27.000
when I had the surgery, if any of you guys out there

00:29:27.000 –> 00:29:31.000
if anybody ever tells you that you have sleep apnea, go get checked

00:29:31.000 –> 00:29:35.000
I myself, when I had the surgery, coming out of the anesthesia

00:29:35.000 –> 00:29:39.000
the anesthesiologist said to me, you really should be tested for sleep apnea

00:29:39.000 –> 00:29:43.000
so I do have an appointment to get checked for that down the road, not this week

00:29:43.000 –> 00:29:47.000
but probably over the next month or so, because I mean there are furrows for that stuff

00:29:47.000 –> 00:29:51.000
we’re a little bit on the slow side right now, but any of you guys out there that either

00:29:51.000 –> 00:29:55.000
feel like you’re sleeping, you’re waking up a lot, or if anybody tells you you stopped breathing, you’re not having an issue

00:29:55.000 –> 00:29:59.000
especially if you sleep next to a spouse and they notice you stopped breathing or something like that

00:29:59.000 –> 00:30:03.000
go get checked for sleep apnea, it’s a really simple test, it’s not like it used to be

00:30:03.000 –> 00:30:07.000
you just take the machine home, you sleep with it, and then they run the study, and then if you do, they either give you

00:30:07.000 –> 00:30:11.000
a mouthguard to keep your tongue down, or they give you the sleep apnea machine

00:30:11.000 –> 00:30:15.000
or whatever, so it’s a very simple fix

00:30:15.000 –> 00:30:19.000
very easy fix, if you do have sleep apnea, just go get checked if you think you have it, or somebody tells you

00:30:19.000 –> 00:30:23.000
they think you have it, in my case the anesthesiologist told me you should be tested for sleep apnea

00:30:23.000 –> 00:30:27.000
because a couple times we were bringing you out of the anesthesia, you stopped breathing, which is

00:30:27.000 –> 00:30:31.000
definitely not good, so that is like my little public service announcement

00:30:31.000 –> 00:30:35.000
if you do have, if you think you have it, just go get tested for it, it’s a very simple test, it’s not a hurt or anything

00:30:35.000 –> 00:30:39.000
you just sleep with something on your finger for the night or something like that, it’s a very simple test

00:30:39.000 –> 00:30:43.000
if you do have it, it can be dangerous, it puts a lot of stress in your heart if you have it

00:30:43.000 –> 00:30:47.000
it puts a lot of stress on your body because you stopped breathing and your body has to gas for air

00:30:47.000 –> 00:30:51.000
and believe me when they tell you, if somebody tells you it’s because you’re overweight

00:30:51.000 –> 00:30:55.000
my friend is literally, I think 100 pounds soaking wet, he is in

00:30:55.000 –> 00:30:59.000
prime shape, runs 5 miles a day and he has it

00:30:59.000 –> 00:31:03.000
it doesn’t matter, it’s all about to do with the soft tissue in your throat, in your mouth

00:31:03.000 –> 00:31:07.000
and your teeth and just the way your jaw is made and your tongue

00:31:07.000 –> 00:31:11.000
it used to be, if you hit 300 pounds, a lot of professional

00:31:11.000 –> 00:31:15.000
bodybuilders have it, a lot of overweight people have it, yes, but I have a friend

00:31:15.000 –> 00:31:19.000
of mine, like I said, he’s in top top, he runs

00:31:19.000 –> 00:31:23.000
marathons on the weekends of it, he’s in incredible conditioning

00:31:23.000 –> 00:31:27.000
and he has it, so just go get tested, if you have insurance

00:31:27.000 –> 00:31:31.000
it shouldn’t cost you anything, he’s just a machine you bring home, years ago when my dad had it

00:31:31.000 –> 00:31:35.000
you would have to go into a place and sleep there overnight

00:31:35.000 –> 00:31:39.000
nowadays, you just wear something on your finger

00:31:39.000 –> 00:31:43.000
it’s very very simple, very very basic and it could really help you out, so please

00:31:43.000 –> 00:31:47.000
if you do have it, or if you think somebody told you to do have it, please go get checked

00:31:47.000 –> 00:31:51.000
it’s very dangerous, people die from it, I didn’t think, I was the same thing

00:31:51.000 –> 00:31:55.000
I was like, I’m not going to go get it, but then a couple friends of mine I found out have it and they’ve almost

00:31:55.000 –> 00:31:59.000
died from it, so, or they’ve had damage to their heart because of it

00:31:59.000 –> 00:32:03.000
so believe me, especially guys, we’re known to have heart problems, men have more heart problems than women

00:32:03.000 –> 00:32:07.000
if you’re a guy listening, go ahead and get tested, it’s really

00:32:07.000 –> 00:32:11.000
it’s such a small, it’s such a little thing to do

00:32:11.000 –> 00:32:15.000
and just get it done so you can, you know, so you live a long happy life

00:32:15.000 –> 00:32:19.000
so something I did want to talk about while I was on the mend

00:32:19.000 –> 00:32:23.000
you guys know I like to talk about TV shows that I watch, especially those survivor

00:32:23.000 –> 00:32:27.000
prepper shows, we talk about them all the time, but I want to point out

00:32:27.000 –> 00:32:31.000
if you, any of you guys that have Disney Plus

00:32:31.000 –> 00:32:35.000
go ahead and watch The Rescue, it’s Disney Plus

00:32:35.000 –> 00:32:39.000
but it’s actually part of the National Geographic package, go ahead and

00:32:39.000 –> 00:32:43.000
watch The Rescue, it actually talks about those 13 kids

00:32:43.000 –> 00:32:47.000
that they had to rescue over in Thailand

00:32:47.000 –> 00:32:51.000
that were in, it’s about a two hour documentary

00:32:51.000 –> 00:32:55.000
it’s very very well done by an independent filmmaker and

00:32:55.000 –> 00:32:59.000
what it actually does is it actually shows

00:32:59.000 –> 00:33:03.000
the whole process of what the, and this is interesting

00:33:03.000 –> 00:33:07.000
the Navy Seals went in there and tried to save these kids, actually one

00:33:07.000 –> 00:33:11.000
Navy Seal died, what it was is these kids were in these

00:33:11.000 –> 00:33:15.000
underwater caves and they just could not get out

00:33:15.000 –> 00:33:19.000
and the Navy Seals are not trained for cave diving

00:33:19.000 –> 00:33:23.000
cave diving is kind of a very very niche kind of

00:33:23.000 –> 00:33:27.000
thing that people do, and I don’t, I wasn’t a huge

00:33:27.000 –> 00:33:31.000
expert on it but I did watch the show and one of these cave divers is

00:33:31.000 –> 00:33:35.000
cave divers, they don’t, like a lot of people carry the tanks on

00:33:35.000 –> 00:33:39.000
their back, well cave divers actually carry the tanks in the front of them, on the side of them

00:33:39.000 –> 00:33:43.000
so they can get through those little things, and these cave divers

00:33:43.000 –> 00:33:47.000
they go through and they lay lines so they can find their way back out and this whole thing

00:33:47.000 –> 00:33:51.000
was really amazing, the Navy Seals could not get into these kids because they were not

00:33:51.000 –> 00:33:55.000
trained for that kind of work and what they ended up having to do, they got these bunch of guys that were

00:33:55.000 –> 00:33:59.000
like 10 or 12 of these guys that are like some of the best cave explorers in the world

00:33:59.000 –> 00:34:03.000
I mean these guys are like IT people, real estate agents

00:34:03.000 –> 00:34:07.000
you know, accountants, stuff like that

00:34:07.000 –> 00:34:11.000
they’re not like hardcore guys, but they are like the leading

00:34:11.000 –> 00:34:15.000
guys when it comes to cave diving, they were experts and

00:34:15.000 –> 00:34:19.000
they actually went in and found these kids because they

00:34:19.000 –> 00:34:23.000
knew how to do cave diving and they had special equipment that was

00:34:23.000 –> 00:34:27.000
custom made, it’s a very very interesting thing, there’s actually a

00:34:27.000 –> 00:34:31.000
forum dedicated, I mean it’s hard to find stuff even about this because it’s such a niche thing but

00:34:31.000 –> 00:34:35.000
there’s actually a forum about it and these guys

00:34:35.000 –> 00:34:39.000
went in and then these kids had been in there for like 10 days

00:34:39.000 –> 00:34:43.000
14 days and when they got there, these kids were

00:34:43.000 –> 00:34:47.000
luckily enough still alive, none of the kids had died and then what they

00:34:47.000 –> 00:34:51.000
were trying to do was they had to figure out, they brought food into them because these kids had no food for like 10

00:34:51.000 –> 00:34:55.000
14 days, look they’re still alive, but they brought food into them so they started

00:34:55.000 –> 00:34:59.000
to get these kids going, get them hydrated, get them food and stuff like that, well

00:34:59.000 –> 00:35:03.000
just to get there is a 3 hour swim through these caves and it’s a 3 hour

00:35:03.000 –> 00:35:07.000
cave ride, swim back and

00:35:07.000 –> 00:35:11.000
so long story short, these guys are there and

00:35:11.000 –> 00:35:15.000
part of the problem is, these caves are

00:35:15.000 –> 00:35:19.000
so small you can barely fit a person through them and to try to

00:35:19.000 –> 00:35:23.000
swim with somebody next to you on a rebreather, it was just, they tried it

00:35:23.000 –> 00:35:27.000
you know, on some other little test runs

00:35:27.000 –> 00:35:31.000
and it’s impossible, so what they had to figure out was, the only way to get these

00:35:31.000 –> 00:35:35.000
kids out of there safely was they had to sedate them

00:35:35.000 –> 00:35:39.000
and that sounds pretty nuts because sedation is something that has to be, and I was thinking about this because

00:35:39.000 –> 00:35:43.000
what happened to me on my back, you know when you’re

00:35:43.000 –> 00:35:47.000
sedated, you’re intubated and when they put a tube down your throat and all

00:35:47.000 –> 00:35:51.000
that kind of stuff, what they had to do with these kids was they actually had to sedate them

00:35:51.000 –> 00:35:55.000
and then give them a shot of something that would stop your

00:35:55.000 –> 00:35:59.000
saliva from being made so that they wouldn’t choke on their own saliva because they can’t

00:35:59.000 –> 00:36:03.000
intubate while you’re going, like you can’t intubate while they’re in the water

00:36:03.000 –> 00:36:07.000
so then what they had to do, they used positive pressure masks, there was only like 4 or 5 of them

00:36:07.000 –> 00:36:11.000
they were able to find in that area that was to put the mask on your face and it

00:36:11.000 –> 00:36:15.000
pushes the air into you, into your face

00:36:15.000 –> 00:36:19.000
and it doesn’t allow, it pushes air out rather than

00:36:19.000 –> 00:36:23.000
in so that it would keep the kids breathing because they were sedated and

00:36:23.000 –> 00:36:27.000
and too, having to tie, I hate to say this,

00:36:27.000 –> 00:36:31.000
kind of like tying the kids, almost like tying their hands up and their legs

00:36:31.000 –> 00:36:35.000
up so that they couldn’t move, so that these cave divers could

00:36:35.000 –> 00:36:39.000
maneuver these kids on a, on an air tank

00:36:39.000 –> 00:36:43.000
and maneuver them through these caves that are tiny

00:36:43.000 –> 00:36:47.000
I mean, and what they would have to do, they would have to push, kind of push the kid through and then

00:36:47.000 –> 00:36:51.000
they’d have to go through behind them and I mean just unbelievable feat

00:36:51.000 –> 00:36:55.000
of what they did to save these kids, luckily all the kids are alive, they all

00:36:55.000 –> 00:36:59.000
made it, but I mean unbelievable, then they had to give the kids Xanax

00:36:59.000 –> 00:37:03.000
and they had to give the kid something else, I’m not a medical

00:37:03.000 –> 00:37:07.000
person, but they gave them another shot of something and then the other

00:37:07.000 –> 00:37:11.000
issue is, it’s a 3 hour trip

00:37:11.000 –> 00:37:15.000
from there to bring them out, so it’s

00:37:15.000 –> 00:37:19.000
half way through they have to stop, it’s this one chamber that they found

00:37:19.000 –> 00:37:23.000
and they have to pull the kid at, almost out of the water

00:37:23.000 –> 00:37:27.000
give him another shot so he doesn’t wake up, because if they start to wake up

00:37:27.000 –> 00:37:31.000
and they panic, they’re dead, so they have to give him another shot to keep him sedated

00:37:31.000 –> 00:37:35.000
then put the kid back in the water again

00:37:35.000 –> 00:37:39.000
and take him the rest of, I mean it was unbelievable what these men did

00:37:39.000 –> 00:37:43.000
and really, you know, unbelievable feat

00:37:43.000 –> 00:37:47.000
amazing, these gentlemen and what they did for these children

00:37:47.000 –> 00:37:51.000
and these guys by the way, I want to point out too, were volunteers, they were not part of the rescue crew

00:37:51.000 –> 00:37:55.000
they volunteered their time to come out, thank God they did, because incredible

00:37:55.000 –> 00:37:59.000
I mean, talk about something, a niche market

00:37:59.000 –> 00:38:03.000
where you were able to just really, there’s only like 12 or 14 and maybe 20

00:38:03.000 –> 00:38:07.000
of these guys in the world that do this, and they all like in a little group

00:38:07.000 –> 00:38:11.000
and they were able to get a bunch of those guys over there and help them and they could only take like 4 kids out a day

00:38:11.000 –> 00:38:15.000
and they were doing like 4 kids a day, but it took weeks to figure, like almost

00:38:15.000 –> 00:38:19.000
2 or 3 weeks first of all to find them, because the cage is so big

00:38:19.000 –> 00:38:23.000
and then fighting against the current, and then they had to reroute

00:38:23.000 –> 00:38:27.000
some of these guys, not the divers, but the

00:38:27.000 –> 00:38:31.000
Navy that they brought in, the Korean Navy and the US Navy and some of that

00:38:31.000 –> 00:38:35.000
able to reroute the

00:38:35.000 –> 00:38:39.000
water away from the, so it wouldn’t

00:38:39.000 –> 00:38:43.000
keep filling these caves up so the kids wouldn’t drown while they were waiting to get rescued

00:38:43.000 –> 00:38:47.000
and it was just unbelievable feat, not only by the divers of course who did a lot of the

00:38:47.000 –> 00:38:51.000
dangerous work of getting the kids out, but also too the Navy and

00:38:51.000 –> 00:38:55.000
the Thai Navy and our Navy and all these rescuers

00:38:55.000 –> 00:38:59.000
I mean, literally rerouting a, you know, with these big

00:38:59.000 –> 00:39:03.000
sandbags and just what they had to do to, because the problem was these guys are swimming

00:39:03.000 –> 00:39:07.000
to these kids, but they’re swimming against the current, so the only way to get the current is to reroute the

00:39:07.000 –> 00:39:11.000
water out of the way, but the problem is, every time they had rain or a monsoon

00:39:11.000 –> 00:39:15.000
they had to redo, I mean, these workers, I mean, all these people,

00:39:15.000 –> 00:39:19.000
God bless them for the work they did and all the

00:39:19.000 –> 00:39:23.000
effort that was put into saving these lives, but talk about a real survival

00:39:23.000 –> 00:39:27.000
preparation situation where these men are working around the clock trying to save these kids

00:39:27.000 –> 00:39:31.000
and part of the problem is, like I said, at first they couldn’t

00:39:31.000 –> 00:39:35.000
even get to them because they were swimming up current, finally some of these Navy workers said, listen

00:39:35.000 –> 00:39:39.000
we can reroute this, you know,

00:39:39.000 –> 00:39:43.000
this river, we can reroute it if we dam it up

00:39:43.000 –> 00:39:47.000
and then trying to, it was unbelievable the effort these guys made

00:39:47.000 –> 00:39:51.000
and at least made the current so they could swim to these kids and I mean, I think it was a couple, and

00:39:51.000 –> 00:39:55.000
nobody had been able to get to them besides these cave divers because they were able to kind of,

00:39:55.000 –> 00:39:59.000
they knew the cave system and kind of knew how it worked and

00:39:59.000 –> 00:40:03.000
having special tanks because regular air tanks don’t last as long, so they had these special tanks

00:40:03.000 –> 00:40:07.000
that they could last hours to pour the, I mean, I thought that was pretty cool

00:40:07.000 –> 00:40:11.000
too, I never knew that air tanks would last that long, air tanks that lasted hours

00:40:11.000 –> 00:40:15.000
and hours so that they could get to these kids, you know,

00:40:15.000 –> 00:40:19.000
because that was part of the problem too, is these tanks aren’t, they don’t have tanks that long, so

00:40:19.000 –> 00:40:23.000
these guys had bigger tanks, so it was just unbelievable and then laying

00:40:23.000 –> 00:40:27.000
lines so they could find the kids and then get back to the kids, you know, and how many times

00:40:27.000 –> 00:40:31.000
they had to bring, just before they even started the rescue, having to bring the kids food

00:40:31.000 –> 00:40:35.000
and then dealing with, you know, they couldn’t get to them again because the monsoon hit and they had to pump out, they

00:40:35.000 –> 00:40:39.000
had to get special generators and special waterproof pumps

00:40:39.000 –> 00:40:43.000
to be able to pump the water out just so they were able to kind of get in

00:40:43.000 –> 00:40:47.000
to the cave system so they could dive, I mean, just unbelievable, all these guys

00:40:47.000 –> 00:40:51.000
too, everybody too, not just the gentleman that dived, I mean, they did, you know,

00:40:51.000 –> 00:40:55.000
I think a scary work of having to sedate these kids and get them out, but

00:40:55.000 –> 00:40:59.000
unbelievable feats of effort to be able to get these kids,

00:40:59.000 –> 00:41:03.000
they’re just amazing. It really is a good documentary, if you have

00:41:03.000 –> 00:41:07.000
time, it’s on Disney Plus, and like I said, if you have it, it’s free

00:41:07.000 –> 00:41:11.000
and actually is an amazing feat, and like I said, these, unbelievable to see what

00:41:11.000 –> 00:41:15.000
these guys actually went through and just the preparation and just

00:41:15.000 –> 00:41:19.000
the figuring the little details out of how, where are we going to put the tanks so that

00:41:19.000 –> 00:41:23.000
it’s not in, so that the kid doesn’t, the tank doesn’t shut off halfway through or doesn’t get

00:41:23.000 –> 00:41:27.000
bumped and it turns off and the kid, you know, he’s sedated, so he’ll just, you know,

00:41:27.000 –> 00:41:31.000
asphyxiate to death, you know, and then also too, these caves only have so much

00:41:31.000 –> 00:41:35.000
air, so they have to keep bringing air into these tanks, they would have to bring air tanks

00:41:35.000 –> 00:41:39.000
and then put the, and then open the air tanks up in the cave just so these kids would have

00:41:39.000 –> 00:41:43.000
air, I mean, just unbelievable, and then too, the situation with these kids going to the bathroom,

00:41:43.000 –> 00:41:47.000
and all that kind of stuff, and then too, trying to keep them

00:41:47.000 –> 00:41:51.000
warm, trying to keep, and it was just, and then too, at the beginning when these

00:41:51.000 –> 00:41:55.000
men wanted to go in there and sedate them and take them out, because it was the only idea they could think of,

00:41:55.000 –> 00:41:59.000
the government was like, well, let’s just drill a hole to them, but you couldn’t, it would have taken

00:41:59.000 –> 00:42:03.000
weeks and months to drill a hole, you know, they wouldn’t have made it

00:42:03.000 –> 00:42:07.000
in the time, and then the other problem was trying to,

00:42:07.000 –> 00:42:11.000
one of the plans was what if we just leave them there and just keep bringing

00:42:11.000 –> 00:42:15.000
them supplies, problem is, as these caves,

00:42:15.000 –> 00:42:19.000
that was part, one of the thoughts was let’s just leave the kids there until the water

00:42:19.000 –> 00:42:23.000
goes down, problem was that the monsoons were coming,

00:42:23.000 –> 00:42:27.000
the monsoons were coming, and the caves would have

00:42:27.000 –> 00:42:31.000
flooded out anyway, and then the kids would have drowned to death, so they had to get them out of there,

00:42:31.000 –> 00:42:35.000
and that was one of the things, well, if we just leave them in there for a few months, and then, well, we can’t do that, and then

00:42:35.000 –> 00:42:39.000
lo and behold, after these guys had run these kids out, like I think it was like

00:42:39.000 –> 00:42:43.000
six or eight weeks later, I think eight days, eight weeks, I don’t remember the exact day, but

00:42:43.000 –> 00:42:47.000
the caves just flooded out, and then that was a blessing if they had everybody

00:42:47.000 –> 00:42:51.000
out by then, but really an unbelievable, I mean, I remember watching this story in the news,

00:42:51.000 –> 00:42:55.000
and watching it, following it closely, but actually,

00:42:55.000 –> 00:42:59.000
the documentary really brought you in deep, and what these men had to do

00:42:59.000 –> 00:43:03.000
to do this, and just the

00:43:03.000 –> 00:43:07.000
preparation that went into it was amazing, and just trying to,

00:43:07.000 –> 00:43:11.000
and I hate to say this, but politics played an issue in it, you know, when they originally said we want to do this,

00:43:11.000 –> 00:43:15.000
and they were like, well, we can’t let a group of, you know, we can’t let these, you know,

00:43:15.000 –> 00:43:19.000
if something happens, this is going to look horrible on us, we can’t do it. Well,

00:43:19.000 –> 00:43:23.000
this is the only idea we got, like, you know, well, you know,

00:43:23.000 –> 00:43:27.000
it wouldn’t look good for, you know, politically, it’s not a good move if something happens. We’re trusting the life to

00:43:27.000 –> 00:43:31.000
people that aren’t even Thai, you know, citizens. It was, you know,

00:43:31.000 –> 00:43:35.000
public safety and public health should never, public, politics and public

00:43:35.000 –> 00:43:39.000
health and public safety should never go together, but it always does, unfortunately, and

00:43:39.000 –> 00:43:43.000
watching this show, and watching these men, these amazing

00:43:43.000 –> 00:43:47.000
feats that they were doing, you know, just, just,

00:43:47.000 –> 00:43:51.000
you know, you really appreciate what, these guys were all volunteers,

00:43:51.000 –> 00:43:55.240
here, one guy actually, while he was away was his wedding. And one guy had his wedding anniversary

00:43:55.240 –> 00:43:59.160
while he was away. He called his wife, it was a crappy anniversary. And one guy, unfortunately,

00:43:59.160 –> 00:44:04.760
his dad passed away while he was away. And he was also the doctor. And his father who was,

00:44:04.760 –> 00:44:10.360
I guess, was a vascular doctor. He had spoken to his father about what his plan was to sedate

00:44:10.360 –> 00:44:15.080
the kids. And his father had said, “Go.” And he knew his father was sick and he wouldn’t leave.

00:44:15.080 –> 00:44:20.040
His father was the same. “No, no, go, go, go, go. I want your doctor to help these kids.”

00:44:20.040 –> 00:44:26.920
His father understood a doctor’s job is to help people and all that. So it was a really amazing

00:44:26.920 –> 00:44:32.760
thing to watch. And just a wonderful documentary. Very well done for an independent filmmaker.

00:44:32.760 –> 00:44:38.200
And I’m really big in independent films. I like that kind of stuff, documentaries. One thing I do

00:44:38.200 –> 00:44:43.000
recommend if you do watch any documentary, I don’t watch political documentaries very often. I watch

00:44:43.000 –> 00:44:47.480
history documentaries, not political ones. Some of those political documentaries tend to be a little

00:44:47.480 –> 00:44:52.680
bit, depending on the film. That’s one thing about documentaries and series and films that are

00:44:52.680 –> 00:44:58.440
political and even history ones you got to watch too. It depends on who makes them. It depends on

00:44:58.440 –> 00:45:02.760
which way history gets written. But especially the political ones. I don’t really watch too

00:45:02.760 –> 00:45:09.560
much of that, but I will watch ones like this, rescue ones, stuff like that. But I’m not a big

00:45:09.560 –> 00:45:16.360
one for some of the political ones. Just get a little bit. I don’t really watch too much of them,

00:45:16.360 –> 00:45:20.360
but I do watch the history ones. I do watch a lot of those stuff. And the history ones you got to

00:45:20.360 –> 00:45:26.120
be careful too, because history is always written by the winner. But I do, especially this

00:45:26.120 –> 00:45:30.840
documentary wasn’t political at all, but it shows more of our, for us as people that are into

00:45:30.840 –> 00:45:36.040
survival and prepping and stuff like that. This was very, very well done film, documentary film,

00:45:36.040 –> 00:45:39.880
very, very well done. A lot of good footage that you didn’t see on the news. Because that was my

00:45:39.880 –> 00:45:45.720
main concern was, I rewatched this on the news. I’m not going to watch it again. But a lot of the

00:45:45.720 –> 00:45:50.120
stuff, a lot of the film that you see was not on the news. So I thought that was really cool.

00:45:50.120 –> 00:45:54.120
More really behind, actually behind the scenes, but that’s the only word I can really think of

00:45:54.120 –> 00:46:00.440
to describe it. More behind the scenes kind of thing, where you don’t really, you really

00:46:00.440 –> 00:46:05.480
haven’t seen too much of that. So I thought that was very, very well done. And then also too,

00:46:05.480 –> 00:46:09.560
some of the things as well you’re going to see is the equipment. I thought the equipment was very

00:46:09.560 –> 00:46:13.960
neat. Some I didn’t know about not being, I’m not really into diving, but some of the stuff I

00:46:13.960 –> 00:46:18.840
didn’t know, you have a pressure mask, which is a, where if you get a leak in the mask, it blows,

00:46:18.840 –> 00:46:24.200
it blows air out where some masks are negative pressure and it actually pulls water in.

00:46:24.200 –> 00:46:29.720
There’s different kinds of masks for different kinds of diving, different kinds of breathers,

00:46:29.720 –> 00:46:33.720
different kinds of masks, all different kinds. I mean, lots of stuff I didn’t know about and

00:46:33.720 –> 00:46:38.280
because I’m not really into diving or cave exploring. We all remember on Batman, what,

00:46:38.280 –> 00:46:42.440
what is this for us? It’s blunking, you know, underwater cave diving, you know.

00:46:43.720 –> 00:46:48.280
Yeah. We all remember that from the, from the Batman. What is this for? We didn’t really market

00:46:48.280 –> 00:46:54.520
these suits to the billionaire space jumping spelunking crowd. But you remember he had that

00:46:54.520 –> 00:46:58.840
special suit. He wore in the first one that they were, it was supposed to be for spelunking

00:46:58.840 –> 00:47:02.920
underwater cave diving, but he has to use it as a vat suit. They were trying to sell those kind of

00:47:02.920 –> 00:47:07.240
suits to the Navy, but yeah, it was, you know, one of those kinds of things, but I will say this

00:47:07.240 –> 00:47:11.480
about these, the underwater cave diving thing, spelunking, whatever you want to call it. It does

00:47:11.480 –> 00:47:16.520
seem like a rich man’s hobby to be honest with you. These guys, they were saying like they,

00:47:16.520 –> 00:47:21.400
they take, I mean, these trips that they go on for these things are, it does seem like it’s a,

00:47:21.400 –> 00:47:24.200
it does seem like it’s a bit of a rich man’s hobby. That’s why I think there’s such a small

00:47:24.200 –> 00:47:30.600
group of them that do it. I think the guy said he had like 10 or 20, 30,000 equipment. And then he

00:47:30.600 –> 00:47:36.040
had spent like hundreds of thousands on, on going on these cave dives. I was like, yeah, it does

00:47:36.040 –> 00:47:43.400
seem like kind of a rich man’s hobby, but it was very, sorry about that. I need more coffee. But

00:47:43.400 –> 00:47:47.080
it was very, very well done for an independent film. And I do recommend you watching it if you’re

00:47:47.080 –> 00:47:54.920
into that stuff. If you’re listening to this show, you probably are, but that was the, like I said,

00:47:54.920 –> 00:48:00.680
that was, it’s called The Rescue. It’s on Disney Plus, it’s part of the National Geographic thing.

00:48:00.680 –> 00:48:05.080
It’s about an hour and 47 minutes. But if you are, like you said, if you’re listening to the show,

00:48:05.080 –> 00:48:09.720
you’re probably into that, you’re into survival and prepper situations. Really interesting.

00:48:09.720 –> 00:48:13.400
And the other thing was too, when you watch this too, some of the things too that you don’t realize

00:48:13.400 –> 00:48:17.080
really is that the, like the rations that they were trying to bring to the kids,

00:48:17.080 –> 00:48:23.240
you know, we think of, you know, just bringing rat, but when you’re diving under water,

00:48:23.240 –> 00:48:26.520
some of these rations are not waterproof. I mean, yes, the vacuum seal, but they’re, you know,

00:48:26.520 –> 00:48:31.560
they’re not really meant to be submerged. You know, some of these things, you know, they’re

00:48:31.560 –> 00:48:37.240
tight, but you know, when you’re going under water like that, you have to, you know, what they do to

00:48:37.240 –> 00:48:43.240
bring stuff just to these kids, how they have to wrap it. And too, you know, the more you’re

00:48:43.240 –> 00:48:46.680
exerting yourself, the more air you’re going to go through. So these guys have to try to bring this

00:48:46.680 –> 00:48:50.440
stuff and they try to, you know, fit it in their belts and stuff like that so that they’re able to

00:48:50.440 –> 00:48:57.400
bring it to these kids. And so it’s not wasted, you know, rations and bringing fresh water because,

00:48:57.400 –> 00:49:01.320
you know, these caves, you don’t really be drinking water where you’ve been going to the bathroom.

00:49:01.320 –> 00:49:07.080
So bringing fresh water to these kids and all this kind of stuff, really, you know, some amazing

00:49:07.080 –> 00:49:13.320
things that these people did. And I was really, you know, really interesting to watch, like I said,

00:49:13.320 –> 00:49:19.240
just what these men went through just to bring these kids food and just to bring them water.

00:49:19.240 –> 00:49:23.000
And just, I mean, like when I was watching the show and I’m, and I think, and they have to think

00:49:23.000 –> 00:49:28.440
about this too, just the physical shape these men have to be in. I mean, because think about this,

00:49:28.440 –> 00:49:34.040
folks. It’s three hours to get there and three hours back. I mean, you’re spending six hours

00:49:34.040 –> 00:49:39.560
diving. Okay. And these guys are bringing food to these kids. You know, you know, they bring like,

00:49:39.560 –> 00:49:43.560
they brought like a hundred meals to these kids. Then like a couple, then like they’re there a day

00:49:43.560 –> 00:49:47.080
or two later to do something else. They’re bringing them, I mean, these guys, I mean,

00:49:47.080 –> 00:49:51.640
it’s a six hour trip. I mean, these guys, the physical cape, I mean, the physical fitness of

00:49:51.640 –> 00:49:57.240
these men must have been just amazing. Just from a physical standpoint, where they were able to

00:49:57.240 –> 00:50:01.800
endure, you know, I mean, they had to be in incredible physical condition to be able to

00:50:01.800 –> 00:50:06.920
swim three hours through the day later, swim in there back. I mean, just unbelievable. The risk

00:50:06.920 –> 00:50:13.320
they’re taking by going through this cave system, you know, all these times, I mean, they could,

00:50:13.320 –> 00:50:17.400
I mean, what’s to say, they don’t get snagged or get hung. I mean, they ran, they ran a line,

00:50:17.400 –> 00:50:21.240
but still, I mean, you just, what these men were going through putting themselves just going back

00:50:21.240 –> 00:50:24.920
and forth so many times. I mean, you just, some of the things maybe I don’t think documentary hit on

00:50:24.920 –> 00:50:29.720
enough that I was thinking about after the fact. So it’s something I just want to bring up, but like

00:50:29.720 –> 00:50:33.960
I said, really, really well done. I really would like to just say, I mean, it’s obviously National

00:50:33.960 –> 00:50:38.200
Geographic, so I expect to be well done, but it was an independent film that National Geographic

00:50:38.200 –> 00:50:42.280
picked up. So I was really impressed by that, but that is one. One of the things I did want to talk

00:50:42.280 –> 00:50:46.920
about that I did watch recently is very well done. And I really think you should take some time to

00:50:46.920 –> 00:50:51.240
watch it if you’re into this stuff and just things, little things that you don’t think about that you

00:50:51.240 –> 00:50:57.480
learn, especially about like just keeping things dry, like how they kept the rations dry or how

00:50:57.480 –> 00:51:03.160
they, how they have to rig the, so that water doesn’t keep running into this cave. There was,

00:51:03.160 –> 00:51:08.600
and how they used piping to keep the water flowing out. So just really a lot of interesting stuff

00:51:08.600 –> 00:51:14.680
that as preppers and as survivalists, you really would, would appreciate, you know, aside from the

00:51:14.680 –> 00:51:19.880
rescue mission, which was just amazing to watch and, and the cam, the, the inside of the cave

00:51:19.880 –> 00:51:25.880
stuff they got that was not on the news and stuff that, you know, and, uh, you know, really, really

00:51:25.880 –> 00:51:32.040
see how durable a GoPro is when you really are watching one of these films. So like I said, I,

00:51:32.040 –> 00:51:35.480
like I said, I’m glad to be back. I’m going to try to do this much more often. I do have some new

00:51:35.480 –> 00:51:39.480
recording equipment coming in so I can kind of record on the road. Um, audio quality may not be

00:51:39.480 –> 00:51:45.400
as great as this is because this is, um, I actually record this, uh, on a really good setup, but if I

00:51:45.400 –> 00:51:49.880
can start doing it every week, um, you know, at least I can keep you a little more consistent.

00:51:49.880 –> 00:51:54.520
Uh, I want to thank everybody for listening. Like I said, all of our shows, uh,

00:51:54.520 –> 00:52:00.520
are our instance for, um, team to talk and where I’m on there quite a bit, uh, that’s

00:52:00.520 –> 00:52:07.080 And like, as always, um, like I said, I want to thank you for listening and I’ll

00:52:07.080 –> 00:52:09.000
catch you on the next show. Thank you very much.
