The last great punk on Tom -- well together a wonderful little -- We listen to voicemails they -- stories. -- -- and I thought that I'm pretty good job arguing about the story yeah exactly we we did a good job I think you were used suspicious of anything that you had to be suspicious at least. Old now now it really -- your terrible liar I got I got -- up after the I -- -- -- we got. What do you plan to -- FF IC is pretty cool because after we got done with our -- we got done a little early and we all proceeded to be like I think I want copy any time. So yeah I know I mortality and suspicious and -- but usually when we're done and I get copied they're gone they're off down the hallway but none make out of there has -- -- very attentive. Three fills the coffee also no emails in the lineup with the big giveaway human ask. Oh yeah you know we're just we're hanging in studio we have the most us we have pie we have all that -- upon the co host of history gathered together. And we thought we would just have a little a post arrest. So I've started the FaceBook privacy happen. No it's our -- Also you need to tell people not to go into the spreadsheet when I know they're not on the show. Thank my daughter Reggie and I know I think -- united argument and it's and you know what the -- not to. Tricked you hated her knowledge I have -- Leila was really the goal is the host roads are right to use it here. It flickered out I'm might be more confidence and tell you funny story. -- -- I've got squeaky clean needs high enough or abused -- oh look at them for Apple pie and more back wholesome Apple. North America and this is actually as -- of his -- -- on the last detention -- this. I'm not the death by the way in case you're wondering where the outside of Tom has been all this time. And -- -- -- that -- gadget because. That's different on you've ever -- You nursing on the power and that there -- in the blind tiger machines costing -- -- Blanche. He -- me I've Washington. Could have been a college settings of the camera and lets it down to my totaling toward white. This at it was not outline now yeah. I don't exactly -- using easy -- you know. An -- of it yeah you're not now -- that -- columns on about a. And this is had to step we get to tell us is about and I don't know seven to eight hours mostly wow. And I starts now have to go. -- against area there will be multiple people don't you were. Let's start actually with -- right and -- in the room yet so I wanna I wanna start with our newest element again here on yesterday show. Rape is going to be taking a -- I'm hosting duties for time. Randy. -- thank you. So well you don't come it was really hard to do the -- thing here as we were talking earlier because -- aside from the gadgets appeared yourself. -- squeaky clean up. I mean like little anecdote about how you you know screwed us over that something out -- step closer funny they don't exist however. I have something here for you the one time you like to me in my entire life. You -- and he got much the space food sticks aria and -- it. Because they are now well I hope they make you eat your words that I took one bite out of this thing like a clear -- -- out of pocket -- -- thing. -- they were beyond flawed and but my guy who get bad that I actually -- result the the entire thing here because I just do it on a clear lead to positive attitude marks wrong gimme. A call. And Google still has been open it. He can't tell. Well you're reading -- yeah man it's -- I'll grow out of nothing earthquake it's it is -- you -- and if your ballot. No don't I don't know if you know lines the great he's married and -- -- -- -- -- -- just just -- chocolate -- -- did not taste like chocolate though that's not chocolate. If you -- one vision and -- very. But other net the what they have to say Tom has this. The thing about -- with -- which I really like to do and I'm really gonna miss. Is that. Of all the -- -- -- -- from the number of times that I have insure that he was actually felt passionate about this and he was arguing passionately. It's like zero yeah. I just can't tell because he argues so well -- in the debate club now we of that debate but it -- on panic message that you're -- Although that the true colors came out of date who's just the other morning we were doing lineup and there's a story about the iodine at a meeting of molecular computer area and it was you know you the -- -- that you feed for EA transforms the mathematical thing I really don't understand into the Adam and it comes at the other -- computed. And Thomas -- as a vehicle during mouth like women before we do this story I have to know. What is that I don't understand carrier turned I don't know what it's -- wanted to do that story and it yet because -- molecular computing. -- -- So I'm like Tom what is the -- -- -- -- between them in the broadest sense I know what I'm talking about and conflict you don't need to know that effect but I kind of think. You don't need that and I think every don't the others others or no you don't need to but I need to I don't know what it is. That's how they argued that -- got angry I was exactly how they argument where written yet. Anyway where he -- Although. He. One last thing is. Another caller yeah. I -- For -- transforms -- He had -- a note to little sail right if you're gonna pretend -- not -- I don't -- yeah. Tom had been working at CNET for a year so for actually got gnome and remember the first time I went to go through department something -- -- -- And -- at this whole shelf. Of old computers I think you're moving in your closet looks like in your office -- the 994. That was when -- with equipment pursuit -- right. Anyway this is where we had what I called -- can lock them like -- hey I'm rate bump on your computer guy like computers. Well exceed a small area like the communities that want a taste or computers or Alexia 994 department own assembly -- -- him. Equipment like the modems are -- -- -- -- -- frequencies like deacon airlock and since then and that's that's kind of -- it here because -- amendments that well I might. Earliest memory of use -- the day interviewed. Because pat Houston the editor in chief took me over to what is now a Starbucks -- was a little restaurant there and you tag along. And we had a little lunch and then pat was like oh I'm I'm late for -- I forgot I gotta take off rate can you handle them -- -- -- Don't really know this. And then -- proceeded to tell me everything that -- they'll never tell you and an interview. If I like hearing here the foibles of -- -- thing's gotta watch out or it and I -- really have always appreciated that. -- didn't talk me out of wanting the job -- trying to talk you out of it now it actually you gave me all the information I needed to know to take that at about you don't think you. You got that had a romance from the very. Yeah it. You might you probably know that Tom is most payments on both effort not just has doubled advocacy but. Is awesome segments yes there's even a theme song and I believe -- Jason in his ultimate. -- buzz out loud archeology. Has dug up the first ever you know probably anyway where -- really. We'll discuss them. Orders to your own segue yeah. Third Alexandra bolt Tom -- and actually have to give total props to the Wiki for the buzz out loud Wiki I'll have you know listed in there that that thing to everybody that has put time and effort -- that -- -- -- -- -- -- acknowledged that stuff so thank you very. Yes is from episode 3 April 13 2005. While and it supposedly comes first successful segue. I think it's he's gonna catch on just over your regular service that I'm -- it's just gonna take up. -- now when you buy that big equipment. One of the reason one of things it does get you very -- right right CDs in the circular is all the time the 3000 dollar TVs on 2000 dollars after rebate and instantly app. Hello. And he got there -- Problem is we can never used that I don't -- the -- -- really I. I totally shuts down this statement completely -- -- everything anyway that's another to let alone and it became a -- republic to talk about. Lately. With it. -- -- -- Nice try they in the room. -- Solved already crying like me remotely if they're not -- -- and it three aggregate -- -- -- -- that. They pick the cross the good things in town and it is. That's not embarrassing I -- that it is yeah. I don't go through stuff and I are you guys say what's raises got -- -- studio and scary -- You're just in time and time exit to take your turn. -- displayed his first ever Segway. However the -- song was masterful yeah. Okay well I guess I don't know business so there rose but it's kind of illustrates. Quirky court Tom that Tom is an. Two years ago we -- at CES and we are showcase. I went to Panasonic's Booth just. See their three -- it. And -- of the first times we've seen a -- treaties and insult like. Come -- guys gotta come with me gotta come with me. So it's com Jason and I think Bonnie -- area rolls out with us and we get the front line and -- going every one's talent in their seats. But there's 3-D glasses and -- -- this demo that's like. Maybe ten minutes long and Tom gets on all fours. And I thought that so this journey to check and the like angles and like you -- -- the site. This -- and he's on all I was about it hit me yet every everybody. I'm gonna let you make and I -- haven't -- ever known as -- sitting watching like. How in the seats conflict only like a little -- noon is gone that it was started out of people's legacy that was going to a study to test -- idea here and beside -- -- this hilarious does. It illustrated like you know he he loved you wanna see it it's probable its. -- guy and a isn't it isn't it research has yet that's -- -- that's I remember a lot this is that passion. We're probably in but. -- you know I'll bowlers. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Q I missed I might -- -- -- condolence and yeah. I. That could peak moment. I he's only there is the dvd of that the legal city. And over the hill and you want to leave now I can. -- -- -- to -- even do it. I'm so excited that Veronica was able to turn in -- studio. It chronic. -- archive and -- that's pretty much show link one years and then we added that's -- the shows we don't name. Shows that shall remain on names are in and and and that Veronica came on and made everything better and you know times -- -- well anybody. And it you don't have a good story is what else you know this is really really for me -- careful -- I. Yeah. Thanks to you and. Have so many stories is his links we have -- years and -- -- I guess -- -- for the benefit and -- I -- -- -- -- -- on the anything awesome and like an hour here's what you're saying. I'm the only thing that I can really was that. So in cars with Tom before I mean given all around San Francisco and -- and you know that it's fine you know driving from place to place. We went to Atlanta for dragon -- And certainly is there and just in meeting -- have -- and we had a rental car and I learned that Tom drives like a little -- I'm sure I. Don't don't don't you're getting snuggle with I -- no idea and the best part. Was that yeah driving down the highway all this and we noticed that the it of the car has common lack of and is about to light up and into the windshield and and either kill us or put it -- like terrible accident. And I'll listen we go into this slight panic when we when we do we pulled over to be turned around what should we go back to do push is gonna pick is gonna -- this the whole trip. And I think we pulled off the next exit -- hold on for -- -- at a variety that extent I will -- and I actually feared for my life. Several times it's it's not your bad drivers -- critical driver makes your chest and very careful. Yeah you're wearing toolbar with what are your best read through the world and the hood might go and anytime you -- I'll make you even more careful kind of lane changing. Where it's like -- -- -- yeah. Let -- get it like this when people aren't like that but isn't -- an isolated experience like Molly have you experienced this before my -- Molly. -- Cisco because -- -- -- -- -- yeah yeah. So I gotta go until later. What you did you more than 13 apparently her in Austin. I had in fact never driven with before and yeah and maybe only about a week and a half earlier I think I was driving home from work and an alien and we have like an exit like -- had to get off but it is certain stripping -- like the government of the it -- me -- you can make it evident publicly others like 300 -- of the -- -- -- think that -- But that's typical little -- -- -- has -- we get oxygen and Tom gets there until it's I was actually gonna but -- implement and get around to it in now I know. Next time. How I'll put the rental hold because blesses. You to. -- And it's. It's on the CL. I don't know this policy team had a car in the weapon we hope we can never -- this to. Click on. Items that copy -- And only done this like you're gonna have secret ever since -- with -- to be just like. She certainly mean I -- I he can potentially but I can't tell me he's so -- right now because I'm not be the movie. -- Because -- and gain some of these. Just click -- you know the car I -- yeah so -- maybe -- is is now maybe. That really unique I don't know it through. You just won't die -- you driving me -- yeah. Hello and I like absolute failure or you'll definitely died because demanded that -- -- right way. -- -- Every day. But yeah. It's -- new meaning to all the time with them in -- -- -- thing about it accurately. I don't have -- any -- three. First generation. It has little generated. Definitely. Are accurate I'm certainly has -- search stories -- we don't -- I think -- probably nicer I do. Wanna say -- I really -- I got to work together the most on CNET life. Mean I was cover first time to really integrate lot and I I was honest I was absolutely amazed that have been ever sets by. You know your ability to know what people would call about. When we had no idea was coming it and they would go deep. They would go in the stuff -- -- -- -- people's eyes worn it in the work has uncles but were produced an emeritus of Greenville but they hear your ability to call up information your ability to put things -- your ability to find stuff on the fly and put together -- useful answer while I'm camping with the useless information is truly great but what. Really impressed me -- and think -- -- recurrence you know -- was your absolute commitment. Too that's what she said jokes. These are. I know my -- you. I do the first time we were doing our first show us put -- plug IK BM and again it doesn't fit issues. A few weeks later you know I got the ethernet Jack in the -- -- dipping in the USB port on wrongful would you and it never stops. This is the other side of Tom -- no one knows mr. squeaky mister helpful mr. useful mr. I -- to make technology work for you -- and value which is that that autumn on the Chris -- I learned from Veronica yeah. I you know an audio guy and I'm not even ban big when I -- that this comes out that's good that's -- -- you push the boundaries on that he says gentlemen. I learned from the master. -- pivotal time with that evidently. I'm going yeah. -- -- island -- -- have a long history. Of jokes going back and forth and after after CES for a few years -- -- the point where. If one of -- told a joke or -- -- or something like that I would say oh that's funny. -- -- -- -- There's no there's no laughter affectionate look at I was on professionals on evaluation and then it may be really happy when we got back few weeks later -- -- like. I don't think they're funny anymore -- -- not around to -- Your -- money. That's it's -- and I know. News that there's that is out okay we need help there's an escalating version of hat that grown kind of -- and I played for years that -- -- -- I'm not sure we went through component of we've seen this I would like to know. Let's take another -- and -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well I I realized I started -- I -- I just one half of it. Your mom's money. Well and now I don't even remembers those -- I had acted funny things with your mom last night -- Yeah that's than just it's only for America -- It pains me show it to Haiti I think we've come to us is -- -- -- -- and I think if -- You know like -- You're nice girl into the earlier -- -- RA. We we got not surprisingly an outpouring of love and support from our listeners and the people who have no -- all these years. And we wanted to play a couple of voicemails. And -- -- -- we actually have. Annette and Amanda French original. Which I hear you should get -- unique is -- in. And -- a week ago it looks Leon's title song your -- -- highly valued professional. Yeah. Clean room -- and yeah. And and and home. It's. Yeah yeah. Yeah yeah. Okay. -- This is where every news. -- -- Tom doesn't recommend it. And a. And -- so we'll. -- -- -- -- yeah. -- Yeah. And analyze in the. Com. -- this -- of author of all my Internet and it's another. Outstanding -- expect outstanding think that being chip. -- it and then the Senate think human and we also got calls from some of the usual suspects including percent -- -- this is ramming. From -- segue news Peter Anglo Celia. -- slippery slopes. Tiered double see you will be. Actually deep -- is -- recall ever actually -- -- -- -- our kind of hoping that he would come on in -- me me. -- it yet it -- the little. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Ed just called this a big camera and welcome to be proven -- terribly great. And of course were so badly that it is you -- -- I guess. He is in the last -- it is a bit about the behavior has added well two years from now about. I'll be covered from -- glad you've been there have enjoyed it oh you don't let -- -- important in the group also buzz out loud -- certain about that. He got as cheers and Beers ruptured. I mean here. You could. Our next caller had such a heart broken plates that I couldn't leave massive hit them again once again to your hanky who had them. Hey this is Clayton from Oklahoma. Palm. As to what -- great what you do. I've been let go out at the beginning. Would be way different you. You're gonna be missed my friend. -- I'm not dying. -- That -- that you never coming back to call. Us so to lighten the mood. -- and one and you. And the Arab could -- with what he Chico California. I can say I wish has to audio. But not doubt that. I can talk to -- now. -- -- -- About. And. In the -- export toward practical kind of what kind of portable. When will big Rick -- the top government. Security. -- they have. I they said the Jeremy shackles when he -- him. We get of drug that could brag about that in the clink and you know Thomas. Is awesome and he even makes an impression on like that you guys. They have a special message from the -- -- This is the guru the. On history I -- here in word that timers joining in other family. And thought about leaving little gift for him -- his desk but figured it was really look costs about them. So gonna do things a little different this time. I wish Tom on shall need to in his new role as on the balls with Leo and his them. Remember. The cloud is everywhere and we'll watch news. Thanks for making Bozell a blast. You into the -- forget about it. So -- you they've been a good. And -- yeah -- Yes and -- to get that tagline in the hidden to have you had submitted. Appeared in bit Italians and I think they got a little -- that the pivot into these entities -- -- for our real spot there. But I'm -- all be right back.

Find out more at www. Squarespace dot com. Nothing we restarted the show. On back there and I -- I would look the other way yes he -- that. One thing you need to know what time he hates it when you talk about that and -- -- -- and I apologize I would like I take this opportunity to apologize how unreasonably angry -- get. When we come and sentiments that flip. -- look there are a little thing they talk about anti spyware like I'll lose my. Oh it's -- and I know I don't know why it. I've I've written. That's another thing -- mentioned once a nice segue and he did that my freaking out I don't let the different well the good that it has had an equally stupid but if the typical. Yeah you can take your stupid you know we're dominated the good stupid and be. Anyway. I'm actually I don't yet know go ahead as ignorant and I don't -- I was just stupid. Is now and -- the time a couple of stupid nevermind though. It. That what think about time that I think you don't really realize when you don't work with -- -- today is that I'll take illness seriously. -- -- like to -- fix it. And many think they may be getting sick. He's out illegal little -- -- out and so I've been -- for I don't know not law you know maybe like the year I didn't know that well. Become happen at any of today. I just needs three times that I. Yeah that's true -- canister and I say. Okay. Like what's not that many of the Simon ago. Driving style and it. -- -- troops and. So I start laughing because I think right now while experts told them. Any stand there looking. At ice these three and I'm getting sick I'm gonna go home but I don't. It's probably more like. An -- effect and that about my first that was the first glimpse ahead -- -- -- it probably comes to be -- -- -- I have to I have to do to go against a little bit because that year we're at CES and he had the -- yes -- like you know. He was like on his -- that -- -- only five days he went up onstage every single day and it has little. 32 segments and each product locked around and did you down and Intel is announcing affected everybody and that's why are you ready to. Cars throughout the convention center. That is totally true what you don't know those events -- -- -- for six weeks after that. -- -- -- No need he has that the -- DS trooper actually -- always get sick on the birthday of the F I think I like this -- like a -- didn't know. Past two years I have actually been in this instance -- yeah. Does he does or that it was awful. Thicker than -- cut that out he really does. And then Tom you know it's in this stuff. Big time so like there was that ancestry web site they came out and -- in Finland they were actually. Yeah. And I'm -- Monday if we hope it. -- -- -- -- -- I am. I. So all of this night you don't think Thomas. Aren't we didn't send you an idea of this and several actually including wouldn't that look into the Alley cat now I know I I looked -- the -- chart. It well that's a brilliant touch com slash blog hey if you didn't get -- hold a charge of course they did -- the -- -- -- -- -- Okay would you -- broad. -- public if you're glad related to a medical gotten better part of their -- -- a little -- tonight I just still amazed at how ridiculous that whether that was in there and -- as I recall him Thomson's -- that that is on that like Amazon -- constraint that by the way it's a great business model you know tell people -- related to god I go out. I doubt it finally ask you picked a great day duties are to meet and Aphrodite -- sure I mean yeah -- the -- resembles hopes and and just so much that he told me that made me look at the chart it's like. Passion for the next -- it came up. -- Okay passionate about it but not as important as the god didn't. -- the only got a -- though who spent. Like a whole day or more I think he spent the entire weekend. On that -- site tracking it all the way back is like he's committed. You. The way that he is committed to being an amplifier. I mean -- never break that's just natural I gave you got holiday whatever is on McCain -- among -- and erratic -- Into the blog and does spell check it because he spells rumor with the -- and in no way it's -- Yeah now rated. -- -- English that you anyway you. At that need to look at by categories and I -- humorous spelled correctly okay from that you wrap food with a metallic foil but he -- -- aluminium. Yes. Yes and so then then the best day ever around the office is when the guys from -- -- intimate -- With a real action and -- at home -- And talked all about the work that they do over at CNET and that the net at that but yeah it's gonna be back. Yeah. All -- time chatting with the UK -- and then we're in our team meeting maybe. An hour later a Great -- through Metallica haven't been there through the history of the day. And then Tom mentions a story that he read. That. That's wanted to make -- -- at home. -- -- British thing I didn't learn it than anybody's analog -- supported that storing the value bed. You didn't know possible at the college that the -- and it's really awesome lessons art I'm just say and it might have been off and I -- right in the meeting currently the and and telling our -- about that now I gotta get really kind of subtle. It's only later. It's almost inspiration you know and what -- -- coming -- When you have again is -- it's it's like yeah yeah yeah -- look at them you gotta be U. It's. Like a suburban he likes gangsta -- certain rights granted and I definitely does yeah -- -- there -- different. I urge you and I got like you I. I think there may have told the story on both before but -- depend flip. Started at at a weeklong science camp and Greeneville college and some term I don't know. A the 485 -- -- and I'm really bored and in this lecture part. And so I'm trying to figure out how I can throw my drumstick in the air and catch it like they do on videos. And so and so there with my pen dots you know like that okay so -- you kind of predicates on but -- catching -- with the other hand. They don't want them -- and call attention to me and eventually I just find myself starting to catch it with the same hand without the other hand. And then after that it just became the nervous -- and that's it that I have ever sent. You have before you leave. You have to teach I don't know what I can key -- and empower your wins and a moderate. Yeah. To -- and negatives. Grasshopper and yet had to learn now. He if he. I love -- yeah design and inner peace sign every does that yet you know most wax on wax off clear -- clear your mind. -- information goes when he. Today I will say don't -- that Tom. I -- -- guy I feel like. We hit officer instantly we have this really -- our interview that was really awkward beach I had -- CNET just come back and they were hiring -- to be mine off. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It's usually going to be about them again I'd double -- ideally what clean it out. -- they don't take -- strangers. Exactly Abbas no it doesn't mean -- I got it busses that Tom will those. Within minutes we were just having this great conversation -- we we just have this -- interview he was really funny it's just really like. I -- that guy and so begrudgingly to go back and alienated these that the equipment back. I got it's really geeky though -- -- really ignorant but time has proven to me. Just unspectacular -- And -- really into you know absolutely so the CNET staff got together and put together the top five out of like a million reason. That we're gonna Miss America. -- -- Welcome to the -- top five where it's time we -- we count on another hot CNET clip I am Molly it. Tom Merritt have been at -- for almost six years and he helped build CNET TV. -- -- I launched buzz out loud he's been the driving force behind that show top five feet -- how to videos and so much more. And now he's leaving us where different colored pastors. So here are the top five reason that we are going to comment. At. Number five hair and fashion tips. And -- one Tom is welcomed me with open arms even looking past my body odor and I'll really miss his smarts and brain. The more poorly what's on his brain to care it provided me with so many styling -- That -- valuable. I thought bubble mobile with the type -- V and there's a reason -- have a blonde streak. It's -- Tom Merritt. Coming in at number four obscure records. What you consider the -- -- that's this work. Well maybe you side automatic -- player of the ninth century -- book of ingenious devices you know. Robots -- a great role in literature atomic want. And -- infantry who think. -- number three yeah how to. Well that I'm there with it to the travel to take a -- -- and -- soldering. Gun camera there. -- in an average you all those bad -- Who if you put this in -- and Canada icon yeah excellent man -- -- an icon -- the -- constantly is Michael Rose zero. Let's hope -- named Mac. Not PC what a clever virus it could be in a web page and instant message or emails about -- and have to open an attachment to get it. It is estimated that no business escaped its infectious -- So so many bad -- Before we get to number one here five more reasons that were on our list but -- didn't quite make the cut. Alright it's time navigating to aren't really gonna tell you it isn't -- we're really going to miss doctor Tom Merritt at number one it's. I've got a host the zona and then some big shoes to fill. -- -- -- -- -- -- But some have. The glue -- away right. Why -- I have -- necklaces right now. Until just now hopefully I'll tell -- area and a and a a couple of emails. From the audience -- I mean we had roughly nine million email -- -- and -- that were somewhat representative. And I think do you do you have -- muted -- known. I got it. Jordan wrote -- from Phoenix -- designer in the chatroom and -- I'll. There. Alex was talking about to let the bells future endeavors after leaving -- and -- -- for awhile now iPad at CNET tribute Carter set up at my cube. And I wanted to send a picture of it report I'm leave them in -- -- -- -- and her body your house I mean this crew will always -- That the defendant. But -- -- -- and a. -- -- -- Francisco already and I'm sure -- the first -- the -- -- they will be greatly missed on apathy and anyway because it's important thing anything. I once -- John Potter is there the weird thing about being famous that the people run into on the street and think they know you but -- -- complete strangers I -- similar way about her departure time. I along with many listeners are complete -- -- you but it seems we sort of know you through what equates in my case roughly forty days and a thousand or so episodes and and on and so. What was your funny quick he's been on technology that I human inform -- net neutrality -- arguments -- -- the not singing with BT ten. But McGregor playmaker -- it's -- -- -- -- different show -- the blood tears from -- Mexico and -- -- and the -- keep up the great work and prevent them. A nice. What would Tom's departure Chevy with -- at least one well -- Right so Warren Chris Jensen in -- says. I know world broken up about -- -- but you guys seriously lifted on the face of Vegas story -- I mean come on FaceBook is making their own online currency and no one thought of Facebook's. -- Law long -- reason we know. There. And we have saved it Jason's stories -- -- acknowledge that yes or is but -- if well we'll summit likely also that it's really hard currency -- it is yours -- still hard. Well it was hard for me it's hard -- -- really come up with anything that I can actually -- few months ago. First thing I wanna say is thank you for giving me my shot -- what -- view because I honestly I wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't for you. And the opportunity gave me -- I'm very blessed enough opportunities thanks -- that you -- you wouldn't be doing it if I hadn't of been in hell trying to edit the best and you walked in and out like I'd really rather -- to do this from now on hate when a job. And it really changed well that's right had a great time. Leo. -- and secondly I just had wanted to point out that and I'm sure everyone -- here would agree that. There are a whole Lotta times that you get so flummoxed around something that you can't quite finish your thought the bust out -- he can't quite finished the show. So my actual roast. I'm not really gonna spoil it necessarily you're gonna know it by this little montage I put together it's the very last clip them on polished. But has something to do at Molly's bingo and I think. Yeah quote video -- yeah exactly what but I think the reason that that I remember this moment so very much is just because you absolutely you never see. Com having a hard time getting through and you can usually kind of push and put it to the side. And they get do the -- on this time you just couldn't quite hold together with just the experience but here's the monetized and that -- -- -- -- a montage. There's a a group of people at Carnegie Mellon University yeah. I'm -- lieutenant for a I'm not smiling and enigmatic -- not speaking -- between -- and it's creepy. -- -- It's -- and going and I. Yeah yeah. Oh wait I just have the volume down and you're not and goodness. I can really -- illegally below they don't -- any. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- gas. And I'll confess I'm jumping to conclusions but I don't think I get all wet when you do that. I jump to grosans. -- -- -- think it's for the kids book. Are you now again of course now I can rename it. The -- that somebody please email them at the but I was sitting at my desk and I just hanging out so and doing actual work and then Tom comes up and says -- up genetic code to be Tom. Before -- planets cannot warm and it's not. Yeah so so confident we battered and I can -- in humans and gifted -- is good. Yeah in the wings this I like whenever Thomas -- them I can dabble a little lot of languages.

It's as simple as that but if that will the -- We've achieved that sells it's flopping on his face as it crosses the talks about the touched -- line. And and and like I could follow football actually it's nice that it did you just call me -- -- out that spot that's actually my -- name. You can't handle -- -- you -- No seriously don't problems of the WPU news coming up in five minutes and weather with Kurt -- -- let's get into a little Melissa Etheridge now. Yeah PC code book yeah yeah yeah that's the if you -- -- -- in effect it. We must divided by a multi C cool that's a at people's up plus one it's -- -- much matter but maybe there's a dark blue a new in dark ether or dark death how do you know at the end.

Foam that's Ohio actually. Didn't quite know where to go and -- know what you're gonna get when you dive on in the town of ram make you could come -- anything like a shark coming out a lot of the legislative -- If nothing comes very night that. He ingests it all the power of Blu-ray compels you oppose the -- on site. -- my friend hello. Just go just. See. Episode 700. Hit it.
