It's new studio time ladies and gentlemen. Check us out. We're back in the brand new studio. Allow me to give you a tour, with the help of Mark Lusaya. As you move right, you see the updated stage. Look at that, fantastic.>> [LAUGH] There's the control room. And what do we have through the glass? Well, it's a man with a hat. It's Ariel Nunez. What's up, Ariel? Hi. Say something. Hi. [LAUGH] As we can hear your moving clockwise through the studio. Clockwise, Mark. No, that is, he's going clockwise. [LAUGH] Mark LaSalle is manning the camera, for those of you who can't tell. I don't care about the storage corner. Move on. It's a tour. Let him tour. There's a light up there? Oh yeah. I had no, I didn't know we had lights in here. Zooming in on lights. Keep it going. Keep it going. And now check it out kids. Whoops, that's the opposite direction. [LAUGH] Keep it going. And then we have, the last. Oh no, there's Brian Van Gelder through the window. [LAUGH] He's like. What is happening? [LAUGH] I get what he's doing. [CROSSTALK] We have basically, for people who are listening, which is all of you. [CROSSTALK] Working out there. So, there's a window. People who are listening, that's all of you. There's a window to the outside world now. So, when people walk by in the studio, in the office. See like that guy, they can look in.>> [LAUGH] No one's interested in doing it though. Cuz we're just **** animals in a school. For all they're concerned. Right? But that's how it works now. Well, yeah. It's good the lunchroom looks right on us. They've taking up watches. Can we? Can we show the last FM stage as well? Mark? If you could, please? Sir? Yeah, that's. That's not it at all. Okay. You start it from the top. God! You're killing me. How about we start the show? It's Friday, November 21st. 404 time, let's do it. [MUSIC] What going on, everyone? Welcome to the 404 Show. We're so glad to be back here, in the brand new studio. I'm joined by I. S. Akhtar. How are you sir? I am great, how are you doing. That is awesome. Ariel Nunez in the control room, what's up? Howdy, I'm good. You look it, that's a, that's the first time I've seen that shirt, looking sharp. Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you. And then Mark Licea's on the, on the floor here. We don't have a floor camera that could show him. What are you, are you, is that you acknowledging we're talking about you. If you're here Mark, can you show us a sign? Yeah, show us a sign. There you go. While we got you here, dude. Yes. That's you saying yes. While we, while we have Mark in the on, on the floor here. Iyaz, can you bring up a photo that I put in the rundown. Absolutely I can. Yesterday our buddies at Giant Bomb Vinnie and Alex did a tour of the new set and the new offices. Their set still being built. And they come in and they show a scene. Where Mark is in the storage room. And this led to a firestorm of comments. Obviously the first time you see Mark you're like oh, my god, why is, like, what is that majestic beast. Right? [LAUGH] It took over their comments and their whole like, you know, community that they have. They're freaking out about Mark. They're like oh, that guy's too good looking just to be in a storage room. That's where we keep him most of the time. And that sort of stuff. They're creating memes for mark. This is amazing. That's insane. Mark memes. Mark memes. Mark, what do you think about that? Speak up. What do you think? You can't just shake the camera. You can ask him yes or no questions. Do you like what's going on right now. Oh. [LAUGH] I don't know. I think that's [INAUDIBLE] That's, that's just party mode. Anyway a shout out to our buddies at [INAUDIBLE] Alex and Vinny. And this, it's kicking all kinds of **** having everyone in the new office. Okay. That's one order of business. Second order of business, it's finally time to give away the XBox One Bundle. If you are listening live, which believe it or not, we're doing it right now. [LAUGH] You can't go to this URL just yet. But by the time you hear this, it will be up www.cnet.co /404callofduty. That's how you can enter to win this brand new Xbox One Call of Duty bundle. And guess what makes this bundle even better. It's got one of those TBs in it. And you know what I mean when, when I say TB, I. No Idea. Terabyte. What, are you serious? When you said one TP, I'm like, tuberculosis, that makes no sense. [LAUGH] It's Friday, I'm in a dark mood. [LAUGH] All right, but anyway, a terabyte hard drive m-er f-er right here. Tuberculosis. Tuberculosis. There's no tuberculosis in this. This? No, this is very disease free. Mm-hm. So, all you have to do is enter, same way we did with the Sunset Overdrive contest. So that's going on right now, as we speak. Get in on that, and I believe it goes to December, I wanna say 9th. If you're curious about the rules and regulations, click through on the show page, the 404 .cnet.com, and that'll give you all the details about that. Moving right along, I think we're just ready to start talking about the stories of the day, Mr. Iyaz Akhtar. Where do you want to start today? Anything in particular you want to start this off? I want to start in the city. Of San Francisco. Then I've got a story for you, you know. Well, good. You've, there was this there's this interactive map that's making the rounds these days. It's actually about about public health and safety. It's called Human Wasteland. I'm gonna show the actual, interactive map right now. And what it is, is a ,. It was like this little hack-a-thon thing. What you can do is you interact, and you can see, you see these like brown stains here? Yeah, what's up with the brown? These are actually areas of San Francisco where people have called in. 311 to let 311 know about public defecation. So if you wanted to know. [CROSSTALK] [LAUGH] Why are people pooping in Greece? Yes, I know exactly where that's at too. [LAUGH] I, I used to live near there. So they're signing on saying what's right there. What a **** area. Right there, there seems to be multiple places when it comes to this. I'm sorry. That was easy. That was easy. That was easy. This is. This is the work of Jennifer Wong, she put together the project. And you can look at different neighborhoods. It's, right now it's, it's only San Francisco. You could go back in time to see how fecally full this place was. I mean, anyone who says San Francisco isn't the ****, [LAUGH] I don't know what is wrong with that. Is the heat map. I don't even know what's gonna happen if I hit that button. Oh, a heat map, like, how fresh, how fresh it is. Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. I'm gonna back out of this. Like, it's really, it's not a heat map, it's a steam map. It's, it's steaming, you're right, this neighborhood. Let's check out Bayview, it's gonna just take us there. [INAUDIBLE] I've got a big concentration of **** emissions [INAUDIBLE] [INAUDIBLE] right there. This is a real thing. Okay. I cannot, this was made around just right now. And there you can see all of the areas at intersection 15th and Landers street was a area We have a fresh poop. [LAUGH] And the weird thing is this is part of a hackathon and it was sponsored by Zillow. Okay. You know how people do real estate- Yeah. Listings. Yeah, yeah sure. This would be really freaking handy- Right When you're looking at a new place, your like well how much **** is around this place? Right right. I mean, I may imagine that just build into the whole thing. Apparently and, and, Ariel can, you know, sort of confirm this. MmHm. There is human [UNKNOWN] is problem in this city. Totally. Well really. Yes. Well okay, those areas that. Like, like this right here. That, that big area right there. >It's like the majority of the city. >Of downtown, of downtown. There's a huge problem in that area, like, there's a lot of like, drug abuse and homeless and like, free clinics and stuff, that's all in that area and it's true, I've seen it myself. >Yeah, but what if, I mean, I still don't understand, like. I get if people were addicted to drugs or home, they just don't poop everywhere. Well, I mean- Like, theres drug addicts in New York and theres not human poop everywhere. There's more public toilets here thought. I think that's part of the deal. Right, see you can go into like, twenty four hour places. Yeah. I think that's part of it. So you got to find out like, if you wanted to open up a shop, you probably don't want to be in this area, right here Right. Right Because of, unless you have like a giant key for the restrooms. Oh yeah. Or. You could clean up the place by having a bath in these people. Well I think a lot of that is changing, too. Like Twitter just moved in the area. Did they? Yeah. So. You think they're responsible for this? Yeah. Maybe. No. Maybe they're not bathroom cleanup. [UNKNOWN] Twitter come of the human feces? That escalates. Just seems to pile up near them. That's a great story. We don't know if that's true. If Twitter has anything to do with it. No, I'm sure they have nothing, nothing to do. Just in case they're very, very angry. And they want to be like, you're not verified anymore. He's talking ****. That's correct, correct. That's such a funny man. That's such a funny man. I love fact that it exists. Well thanks for that. What do we have next dude? We've got the issue of. Winnie the Pooh. In Poland. Oh speaking, speaking of poo. [LAUGH] [LAUGH] I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I gotta go grab this one buddy. It's the first show in the new studio. I mean, I'm sorry. I was going to bring it way down. You know what I've been far too freaking classy. I'm the guy. Today I found these stories, okay? I found. You did, yeah. The **** story, I found the Winnie the Pooh story because you know, it's Friday and people are writing up all this stuff. So, there's a play area in Poland. They're setting up a park area, and they're like, hey, you know what we're gonna do? We're gonna have a mascot for this park. Okay. And Winnie the Pooh is out of the running, and that's because. He's been called all kind of things including an, an inappropriate hermaphrodite.>>What?>>Due to the fact he doesn't, he's not fully clothed. He's got this whole like half nude thing going.>>Hermaphrodite's one thing but innapropriate.>>Part of the, apparently this discussion that happened was secretly recorded.>>Oh, crazy.>>And there's a lot of things going back and forth. Somebody was like defending Winnie the Pooh and like. He doesn't have genitalia because he's asexual. Doesn't have a sex. It's just a bear. Why can't we just, why can't the people of, of Poland just be like he is a, he is an, a re-animated stuffed animal? Exactly. It's a stuffed animal. Why can't we just do it like that instead of there's no junk on that bear. Right? Here, another quote it was a, it, it. It is half naked which is wholly inappropriate for children. That's like half of Disney. Oh, my God. It's like half naked. Yeah, for sure. And half of Disney is not wearing pants. No one wears pants. Donald, Daisy. That's right. No, none of those ducks. I'm not even. No. Huey, Dewey, Louie, Scrooge. Mickey Mouse. Mickey Mouse wore shorts. Oh, he wears shorts. He doesn't wear a shirt. Yeah, but there's room for like leakage [LAUGH] in those shorts. This is true, but Mickey Mouse is not in, I don't think he's in the running, but Winnie the Pooh apparently is just bad for kids. That's crazy.>>Doesn't he like hang out with like Christopher Robin, like a little kid? Just hanging out with other stuffed animals and stuff?>>Yeah. Yeah, no it's fine. It's totally fine. He is the epitome of, of childhood innocence. Yet, we can't have nice things.>>He's a honey thief.>>I mean, he's a bad role model there.>> [LAUGH] He's a criminal.>> [LAUGH] He's a damn criminal. I'm glad you brought that to the to the table here. It's very necessary to talk about these things. Alright, we'll get into tech now, we promise. What have we got? Oh, dear God, I was not ready for that. [LAUGH] Okay. Let's talk about Comcast. Okay. Alright. Comcast is one of the worst companies in America. Worse in terms of customer reviews, sure. Yeah, so you've got consumers for like the, like, I think they were listed as the worst company in America for this year, 2014. Right. Just beating out Monsanto, of all things. Did you hear that Monsanto kind of like destroys everything? What's Monsanto? They're like responsible for all kinds of weird genetic engineering when it comes to plant life. . Okay. And like, think corn, think Monsanto, and all kinds of horribleness. All right. Anyway, so Comcast wants to not, not suck anymore, so they're letting people, at least in a testing phase. They're letting people track the technician. So you know how they give like a two hour window? Sure. This app supposedly lets you actually track the technician. That sounds pretty great. The only catch though, is it's not like you can track him like, all day. It turns out that you can track him when he's like 30 minutes away, and only 30 minutes away. Oh. So that ridiculous window still exists. Still got a window. Like I'll be there, you know everyone makes a joke, I'll be there from nine to five. [LAUGH] And you're like sweet I, I have it on my calendar. Well yeah, they're going to say you look at the two hour window and you're supposed to get actual updates if the actual person is going to be late, that's kind of need Sure, sure Like. I spent a lot of time talking crap about Comcast. I used to have Comcast.>>Right.>>And they're gonna own Time Warner at some point. So, they're gonna be my provider again.>>Sure, sure.>>This is actually a good thing.>>I'm not too shocked. It's a good thing. [CROSSTALK] I, I, you, you can definitely tell by the way the day is going for a contractor, technician. Whoever it is. Like you can tell if the first appointment goes three oh, you know 30 minutes to an hour over, well then yeah my appointment the last of the day is probably gonna get jacked also. So, I think that kind of transparency [CROSSTALK] I think we needed a god view for this. [LAUGH] That's what, we I wanna see That's what this. All the technician, no we don't get to see em until they're like close by. Right. But that'd be kind of neat. Like you, take like Uber's method of tracking people. Sure. Just apply it to Comcast, so take this evil thing Right. And give it to this other evil company. Boom, we'll have happy customers. And they all have it. They, it's just a matter of flipping a switch and giving the consumer the the access. Let them see the [INAUDIBLE] view. We can see, like oh, look John is late by three hours. [LAUGH] Right, he's been in the Taco Bell drive-thru line way too many times. There's gonna 311 calls. The heat map is getting really, really brown right here. Had to bring it back to the point of public defecation. I have to, man. Come on, we're gonna, we're gonna do a show live. If we're gonna do it, let's do it. I wanted to talk about this, man, this JFK airport thing, this is crazy. Okay, you're, you're freaked out about this. Yeah, no, this is interesting. Now, there's a, there's these reports, these reports that pir, pirates, pilots. [LAUGH] Pirates have nothing to do with this. Pilots are seeing unmanned drones flying around 2 to 3,000. Near runways, about ten feet away from runways. Ten feet? Sorry, ten miles, ten miles, excuse me. Ten feet can be a problem. I was like, that's on the runway. Man, could you? Let's take this drone to the airport, and see what happens. No, it's ten miles away from the runway. I think it was like runway 22 or something at JFK. Right, but when you think about it, though, ten miles in, in, air travel is almost, yeah, for sure. You can travel pretty quickly, you can travel pretty fast. So you've got these pilots and they're talking to the FAA about this, cuz they're like hey, by the way, these drones are around, they're not licensed, we don't know what's going on there. And if, and before people are like, oh, a drone's not that big a deal! The only problem is if a drone gets sucked into an engine, it can kind of like, **** up that engine. Which would be a pretty, Of course. Freaking horrible. That would be terrible. You, I thought, man,. Are we, are we, are we prepared as a society to get that first news story about the drone that got sucked up in the plane engine? I mean, is that gonna happen? I would think that we would probably get the story that any time somebody sends a drone anywhere near these things they'd just drop dead, out of like automatic programming. Yeah. So that's what I'm thinking's going to happen. Like, people are going to have like, drone control. Right. So like people get angry and they're like, but how could you stop my drone from flying somewhere? Cuz you could kill people. Yeah, that's crazy man, you don't need to I never even thought about that. It was more just like, the privacy thing, and now it's like taking out planes. What we need to do is find some CNET reviewers of drones. Bring them on to get them. We got them. Don't we, we read a bunch I think. I think we got a guy, right? A computer guy. Yeah, Josh. Josh, Goldman. Josh, Josh yeah. People get Goldman in here and ask him why he's trying to kill the public. Be like, why are you revealing these things? New topic. This is like, we don't, we don't normally review weapons of destruction, right, do we? It's a, it's an intense thing. So I guess JFK makes the most sense because it's. it's, it's got the most sort of immediate residential area, in the surrounding radius. Mm-hm. I grew up around there. Yeah. That's crazy. which, that's, is that closer to City Field, or is it LaGuardia that's City Field? LaGuardia's closer to City Field. Yeah, okay. JFK's near [INAUDIBLE] race track. Right. And I could. I remember growing up by there.>>Yeah.>>Lots and lots of airplanes>>My mom grew up in Howard Beach and that's JFK right?>>That's nearby.>>Yeah>>That's a little ways away.>>I remember going there where it's her, where she grew up. And like that, it was like every 14 seconds [NOISE] The weird thing is, back when they, they were doing the whole digital transition. When an airplane would go by>>Yeah.>>My TV signal would cut out. Oh my God. Cuz it was like, there was like one tower. Right. Cuz they'd be like, we're just starting the transition, you wanna watch in HD over there, sure. Right. Except when an airplane went by, 24 would go green. That's so weird. Not black, but go green on the screen. That's crazy. okay, we've got a little more time. Can I, I just thought of a story, can I, can I interject that? Can i interject this story?>>Sure, why not?>>Can it go, can we live a little dangerously?>>Let's do it!>>Have you heard of Google Contributor?>>Yes.>>Yeah. That's kinda crazy right?>>Now, what, break down Contributor to people who don't know what it is.>>All right. So, there's a, an invitation only service being offered by Google. Coming very soon if not now. Where partnering sites are going to sync up, that are enrolled in this program a small donation by you will eliminate ads from those Google served sites. On a monthly basis. So the Onion is one of the partnering sites. So if you go to www.theonion.com and you pay for a Google contributor, it's $1 to $3 dollars, whatever it is, a month, instead of seeing Ad Sense ads, you'll see like, hey, thanks, from the Onion. So, if you're signed into Google, will it get that way? See, and that's the thing that's weird, I couldn't wrap my head around it. I guess you'd always have to be logged into Google. To the account where you've paid. Which you are, which you probably are. Yeah, but the thing is, it has to be at, attached to the account that you paid the Onion with. Right. So it's like my, if I, my Gmail. Mm hm. Would you know, have it. and, and if it's cookied in, and, and anywhere you go in that session, in that browser session. And again, it's gotta be a site that is playing ball with this partnership, then yeah, this little fee will will give you access. Do you think it's gonna work? You think people are gonna actually pay for it? I don't know, man, because right now it's free. To just see an ad. Right? Right. And I get what they're trying to do, but I don't know. I, I feel like, you're, you're better, well, I don't know. That, maybe that's why it's rolled out to such a small group at first, to see how. How it how it works. Test the waters a little bit. I don't know. I'm kind of ad, ad blind. I kind of know where they are. Yeah, I just don't see them. I don't even see them anymore. I don't see it. Or like they stick out like a sore thumb. Right, you see the ones that are like integrated heavily, like, you know CNET does it all the time and there's like a massive freaking ad that's like racked up in all the, you know. The [UNKNOWN] All up in it's. Stuff, you know? That's not, that's not gonna be affected by a contributor. I think I'm terrible with ads, I actually like targeted ads, cuz I have to buy stuff anyway. Like I buy stuff, like a human being. You know how like, do you ever buy things? All the time. I buy things, right? And sometimes I see an ad, and I'm like, actually I do want one of those damn things. No, that doesn't- That has happened to me enough times. You, you're the guy that clicks the Facebook ad? I'm the, not the Face, no, not Facebook ads. My Facebook ads are reflective of what I actually have bought already, though.>>But what the hell are you buying that you're life, oh I see an ad for this. I need more laundry detergent?>>Well, that's one of em. I always forget detergent.>>But like>>I'm very forgetful. You know this right?>>Ex, explain the one example where you saw an ad for something and been like. Gonna buy that. I'm, I'm sold. Art.com kept frigging doing this cuz I was trying to get. I've moved lately, fairly recently right? Yeah. I needed to get some art for the walls. Okay. So I'm looking at a whole bunch of stuff and these art.com ads kept popping up- Because you been there. Yeah. Everywhere. It didn't matter where I went, it just kept popping up. And I'm like, it's wearing me down. I'm like, I think I really do want that giant print of The Hulk. So I got it. [LAUGH]. Does your, does your room look like. Does your, I'm sorry, your apartment. My room? [LAUGH] In the room that I rent. No. I'm only saying that because you sound like a kid when you talk about having a Hulk poster. Mm-hm. I'm picturing, like, 40-Year-Old Virgin. No, my son stays over, and he likes, the Hulk, so that's why we Have the Hulk. Mm, easy excuse. Excused. Yes, yes, if it sounds childish it's cuz I have a child. Okay, so here's the deal. So. I keep him in a box. Here's this deal, right? You keep him in a box? [LAUGH] Here's the deal with me. Like I, I, I'm always on Amazon. And I have this habit. I'm just dumping stuff in my cart because I love that the cart is always with you. Uh-huh I think that's like, there like one of the only sites that really keep it with you all the time. There's certain sites like the cookies that stay Oh, then forget it But Amazon, a lot of carts just forget it after awhile. Amazon will keep that crap in your cart till the day you die. Hey who says. You get this notification on the right that says the thing, like the Xbox 360 that I added all these years ago. Right. Like, has decreased in price, it's like $45. [INAUDIBLE] yeah. And you're like, I forgot I even bought that, [INAUDIBLE] Well, here's the issue I have, right, so you have that cart saved in your cookies or whatever. So then, you know, you start seeing ads on-sites, where it's like, Amazon, you know, and it has the things that are in your cart. And it's like. Just buy it man, you, you're one click away. But it pisses me off because it's like sometimes it's stuff that I can't afford. But I just have it in my car cuz I like, I like the way it looks [INAUDIBLE]. You like the idea of having it. And then i go to like whatever.com and I'm seeing this thing that I can't afford right now. But it's there, mocking me, staring at me. Being like, hey, remember when I used to be a thing you might've been able to afford? That's all I gotta say. Okay. That's it. A lot of personal problems going on over here. Yeah, you got some, you got some issues here. I mean, it's more like a me problem than. Yeah, yesterday we find out you got dad issues with the whole Uber thing. Yeah. And now today we find out you got this, like, this, this lust of things, like, you want to own all the things. Yeah, I wanna own them. You're materialistic. I, I'm not ma, no I'm not. Yes. I'm not. Yes. No one's ever called me that, no. I just did. I mean, I. [LAUGH] It just happened. Let's just get back to the episode. You can say whatever you want. Doesn't mean you were right. I know I can say whatever I want. That's the fun part, the swear words. [LAUGH] Let's see what other people have to say, for once. How about that? Let's do calls from the public. Let, let's do calls from the public. Can we? Can, it's not happening. It's, it's up. It's up? And to show the love. Big 404 CNET. 404. [NOISE] [MUSIC] You're right Ariel, that was my bad. [LAUGH] No problem. okay. Guess what? What? I'm right again. About what? About this. Everything. Let's go. Hey, Jeff, Iyaz, Ariel. This is Columbus from Mitchell. I've literally been listening since episode one, and I've never called in before, but I had to on this one. Do you remember how a guy was able to run into the White house. Mm-hm. With a knife? Almost unimpeded. Mm-hmm. By the Secret Service. Well, apparently, get this. One of the Secret Service agents who was on duty at the time was, what's that, on his cell phone. Thank you. I just had to bring it up. I fully agree with Jeff that cops should not be on the damn phone. Thank you. Thank you for the show and hours of entertainment. Well that's very nice of you to say so sir. Thank you. What's up? Because there's one secret service guy. That's not a failure of the whole team. One guy's like. It kind of is. He's like. That's a failure of the whole system. That's a huge big- Guess what, guy? The freaking head of the Secret Service has stepped down over this whole thing. It's an issue. It's a thing. And I'm seeing it everywhere, and now, and now, everyone's emailing me when we see it. They're personally emailing me and I've gotten, I crap you not. I've gotten upwards of 30 emails about it. And people are like, you're right, that sucks. I'm not that in to this one today. Maybe he was texting in for help or something. Yeah, that sounds like the fastest way to. He's tweeting in for help. No, that makes sense. [LAUGH] Where were you Johnson? I was tweeting about. I sent you a DM. [LAUGH] [LAUGH] Can I get my DM? Just the, DMing the President. Look out. Yeah. [LAUGH] Not cool, man. I picked the guy. Not cool. That's it. And. Oh, there was something else. It happened to me again, where I saw and I was like I hope nothing bad's about to happen. It was somewhere like Times Squarey. Like, I got no problem if it's some, like, highway patrolman on the side of the road checking his, you know, texting someone. I don't care, I don't care. But in these high-traffic, potentially uber-dangerous areas, come on. Come on, you know I'm right. Shake your damn head. Let's move on with calls. I'm not touching this. [LAUGH] I gotta, I got it, I got it from Ariel. Ariel's on board. I can't believe how worked up you get man. You get so worked up about this! I hear you. I don't want to get like, like, I don't want to be responsible for your heart attack. I'm just leaving this alone. Moving along. [LAUGH]. We were talking about organ transplants and being possessed by the original owners. Yes. Okay, here's this. Hey, guys. This is Zach here. I really like the show. I like ,. Ha ha, [LAUGH] alright, edit that. [LAUGH] Wait. Note to any viewer, when you say edit that, I am not going to edit that. [LAUGH] Yeah. Because it's funny to me for some reason. Moving along. Hey, guys, this is Zack calling about the show. The other day you guys were talking about. Ariel and Jeff are talking about eye transplants. Mm. And Jeff mentioned something about being possessed by a transplanted body organ. And that reminded me of a very funny comedy bit, by the comedian John Mulaney. Yes. Who does a joke about. Jerry Orbach, the detective from Law and Order: SVU. And two people having his donated eyes. It's pretty funny. But I really enjoy the show. Keep up the good work. Thanks. Thanks for the call, dude. We've been talking a lot about Melaney lately. Was it on this show? What is off this show? Yup, both. Because it's on my TV show. Right, on and off the show. And then our buddy Mark Maren interviewed him, earlier this week. It's a really good listen. Cool, I'll listen to it. It's crazy. His stand up is amazing. and, and Jerry Malback is dead. [LAUGH] Right? Is that the takeaway from the call? I think so. Fair enough. You can't donate eyes before you're gone. You, I guess you could. You could You gotta be pretty warped. Is that the way to do it? Like, would you give, if you were married would you give your wife an eye if she, if you could, if you like, she couldn't have. Would you give, would you give your son an eye? Give my son an eye, sure. Not your possibly to be [UNKNOWN]? Well I'm related to this guy. I know, I get it, I get it. Would you give, fine, new question. Would you give your son an eye? I just said sure. Sure? Is that a sure after? Well not my, the one with astigmatism, no. Right. Like you don't want this one on my left side. Right, there's no hope for it, right? Yeah there's no hope for that one. Yeah, sure, why not? You hear it here first, Aldrin, so keep an eye out. I mean, I don't have a kid yet, but. Would you give a kid your, your kid your eye? I guess it's upsetting that I haven't immediately answered that. [LAUGH] I mean, like, we're assuming that there's something wrong with the kid's eyes. Right. Total blindness? This is not just for the hell of it. He wasn't just like, hey, I want an eye. Like total blindness? How you gonna avoid that? I guess I gotta give him an eye. I don't know. I mean, not in front of the camera. If we're going from zero to 50 for that kid. Right, Aria? You're gonna wear a patch? I'll give my kid my lazy eye. I'll keep the good one. [LAUGH] Is that a **** move? I don't think so. Yeah, I need one right? Right? Right? Yeah. Okay so, this is the one time I didn't make the **** move, of the three of us. Lazy Eye, No Answer, Sure. I have, the jury's still out in my head. This is amazing. Okay. I'm just. I'm marking this on my calendar. It's interesting to know that the technology is not yet available. No. Like, we cannot do this, this is just a hypothetical. Well there, I'm glad we don't have to worry about this in our time. [LAUGH] You and me both. Oh, man, I wonder what people would do. I, no, I'm telling you, not everyone would say yes.
