spk_0:   0:03
Welcome back to J To cast prepping, as always, I'm Jeff and accompanied by Jesse. Jesse, how you doing today?

spk_1:   0:11
Finer than frog hair Split three ways.

spk_0:   0:14
We Of course. We're going to be talking about, uh, cove in 19 the Corona virus. We're gonna be talking about where they have prepped. Whether you haven't breath what you should do. What you shouldn't do were as best as we can guess

spk_1:   0:30
That says we can figure out with the with the muddy information available.

spk_0:   0:33
Uh, first of all, where have we been? And ah, we started off here. As you see, Jesse, I have my bottle of water. I have my kickstart energy drink, which I have decided is healthy because it's got 5% orange juice in it. So

spk_1:   0:50
whatever you need, tell yourself a guy that

spk_0:   0:52
there. And so as long as you're fueled up, we have in my estimate Ah, 50. No. 30 shows to make up right now.

spk_1:   1:04
30 shells to make up for what? A year and ah, year in two months. You're in three months.

spk_0:   1:10
My head. Yeah, I I thought a year in three months, So

spk_1:   1:13
Okay, we'll go with a year and three. Uh,

spk_0:   1:15
so we've will be here for a while, all right? No, not really. I can't talk for 30 hours. Some people think I can, but I can't. I've

spk_1:   1:23
been on road trips with you,

spk_0:   1:26
so we, uh we're gonna start off with their about, Oh, Christmas of 2018. Correct. We decided that we were gonna take a break because, uh, well, all it I'll let you kind of go over what you do. Want to go over what, You don't want to go over? Um, you had a change in your family?

spk_1:   1:50
Yes. My mother was diagnosed with a condition that, uh was she was terminally ill and required quite a bit of looking after, and it was my pleasure to do so, but it definitely, uh ah. Took a bite out of the time available and definitely definitely kept us quite busy. And then, at the beginning of 2019 you and I stepped into a different business venture together, which, uh, with especially with me having to be on the coast for the first part of 2019 and all the work you were doing there, neither of us had any time to be able to do anything. And, boy, it has just been quite the ride. And, well, we we decided to take a break over the holidays. Come. We were intending on coming back to the beginning of 2019 and, you know, as soon as something's kind of calm down a little bit and, uh, we

spk_0:   2:51
and they wouldn't and they just they just wouldn't It just wouldn't calm down

spk_1:   2:56
is I mean, we tried to be patient. We tried, We tried to wait. We try to do what was right. It was just wouldn't leave us

spk_0:   3:02
alone. Yeah, it was. Well, I I have told people 2019 was, you know, the year I was happy to see gone. I was I mean, neo started out. We went into the business venture. And you're still in it? Yes. Uh and ah, that was exciting. I love starting businesses. I love getting things going. I love that kind of part. I love that part and, uh, great at it. And I just, uh uh, I I had such huge, huge, uh, optimism. And of course, you know, you were, uh, going through things with your mom situation and ah, that's about when, um, in July is when I found out that my wife, Tony, had breast cancer. She was diagnosed early July, and I'm not sure of the exact date. It's all a blur now. And then the following day, my father was diagnosed with stage three. This off a geo cancer. So we had the new business we had that we had your your mom and on top all that. Uh, finally, we made it through. I'm gonna just Unfortunately, I hate to be the other side of the coin because unfortunately, we lost your mom. Yes. And, uh um, So that pains me because, uh, Tony came through, okay? And my dad beat his back, right? So I I hate I hate to be the other side of the coin for you.

spk_1:   4:40
Yeah, on that. Well, I also forgot to mention my wife's autoimmune disorder, which is, you know, they have been getting worse. And complicating things is

spk_0:   4:47
a cz well, so that and then about November, I found out that because I had no energy, I was drinking energy, drinks, coffee, things like that. Found out I had my own situation, uh, went and had labs done, and Basically, everything that was supposed to be up was down. Everything was Somebody must be down was up.

spk_1:   5:13
I'm waiting on my lab results Now. I got I got tested the other day, so I'm waiting on my lab results to see how that goes. Well, say that another adjustment 2019 has brought me is I've had to learn how to drink. You'll excuse me for saying this. These words but decaf. Oh, wow. No kidding. Yes. That's a big black cup of decaf sitting right there. Really? Yes.

spk_0:   5:40
Wow. That's Ah, I'm shocked. Not cause it's you just because for me, coffees, entire existence is as a carrier, right? Yeah, for cap in it,

spk_1:   5:52
Right? Right now, it's I'm just I'm a placebo effect here. I'm just lying to myself just so that my brain doesn't freak out on me. Yeah, it's definitely been something. Ah, been drinking coffee. My my entire life. Found out that I had toe definitely cut back on my caffeine. So drinking 30 ounces coffee in today was not the best thing for me. And so yeah, I wasn't sure how I how I was gonna live without supplementing my caffeine system.

spk_0:   6:21
See that's impressive to me. Because I wanna win. Is while back here, here, here, in the studio. I was here working on some projects, and I accidentally drank most of pot of coffee. And I say accidentally because I was using a little cup and I kept going back and refilling Zachery feeling it made me so sick. Uh, I cannot handle a lot of coffee. I can drink soda. I can drink energy drinks. I could recall that, but coffee will tear my stomach apart. And I didn't feel right for us the day. So it's impressive. You could do 30 cups in the first place. How about 30 ounces, but already answered for me. Uh, s Oh, yeah, that's it. I could not do it. Um, I'd be miserable. Miserable

spk_1:   7:04
took me about a month to transition, and I think I've finally gotten used to it.

spk_0:   7:09
So if you had headaches, have you been, uh, through the withdrawal?

spk_1:   7:12
Uh, no, because I tie traded off of it.

spk_0:   7:15
I see. Okay. Um, well, my thing was I found Alex in my They've got me on some stuff now. Um, which I'm gonna go off on a quick side thing here because of this. And if this as relates to the Corona virus, Uh, I was shopping for my medication in as much as I could get, because I don't know how many people are aware of this now. I wasn't until here recently. Most medications. And when it comes to things like the medications on crash carts, all of them are made either in China or India.

spk_1:   8:02
Well, that kind of leaves us a bit of a trade disadvantage, doesn't it? Yeah.

spk_0:   8:05
So, um, and these air also medications that the military depends on Ah, the they're all made in China, India. So if they were to not be shipping, not do any of this, We don't have facilities currently up and running to make them. Well, let's

spk_1:   8:27
go say, generally speaking, that's just laid out wrong.

spk_0:   8:29
80% to 85% of I V bags, Saline solution. Ringers. Do you know where they're made? China, Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico. That's why a few years ago, when that hurricane went through, those things were almost impossible to find because 80 85% of our I V bags are made in a factory in Puerto Rico. Wow. So and I was deal with this yesterday is going around and I had big plans. I was gonna go to the gym, is gonna do some other stuff. I lost my entire day because I had to go fill these prescriptions because I finally got my My primary care provider is aware that I'm like I am, and he knows I want stuff on the shelf, right? And ah, So I got him to write my prescription and, ah, for a bulk purchase. And I took it to the Wal Mart neighborhood market here in town where I've had other stuff filled before I took it in there and he said, We don't sell it like this. We sell it in one mil a leader, dope in one mil, your bottles and ah, I said, Well, what am I gonna dio? They said, We'll give you 10 of them. I said, Well, what would that cost me? And they said, Well, it'll be a $247 Al Yeah, and that whole wow meal Give me the paper back. I'll order it off line. And so then I called up a local Stones corner pharmacy here in town. There are local compounding pharmacy, and I called him. I said, Can you fill this as written? And they said, What is it? Yeah, we could do that. It We don't have it here today, but it'll be here tomorrow if you want us to order it. Well, how much will be cash price? Because I'm self bay and they swell to be $97. That's a stark difference. Fantastic. All right, well, now I'm driving down the main thoroughfare. Drop one at the time. Come upon a Walgreens. You know, I've looked good or ex, right? I didn't like the price of salt there. I'm gonna go in any omelette talk. Don't go in. Given the paper in the ladies looking at I did not want this filled as it's written because I don't want a little bunch of little bottles that could be broken because they're glass bottles broken. Other things happened to him, and she says, Why do you say what? Why? I understand why you're stating that because I tried to go a Walmart. They want to give me a bunch of little bottles, and she says Okay, so she goes back. She brings out the 10 million bottle puts in front of me. She's right there. Perfect. How much is it? She starts ringing it up. She says, Oh, you have a discount card on file with us. Which I had no idea. Cool. Right. So she goes, How much did Wal Mart want for those 10 bottles? I said $247 is okay. I think you'll be happy with this. Then we'll be. She was. Can you swing $38.50? Holy Cheez Balls went quite the disparity. I said, I will do that all day long. Yeah. So it got me wondering. You can stock up if you have a provider who will work with you and who will. In my case, I think what he does is he humors me in his mind. Ah, you know you can get this done. You have to have, ah, good relationship with them. They have to know you're not reselling it. They have to know that you're not going to use too much of it, right? That type of thing. And this one he's prescribed for me for quite a while now. So he knows that you know, I don't command saying I lost prescriptions. I don't come in saying, you know, the dog ate him,

spk_1:   12:34
right? I think, uh, you're not Doc shopping,

spk_0:   12:37
you know? But you've got a shop, man. I mean, and I just nowhere else Is it like this? I would if I went toe Wal Mart. And they said milks $20 a gallon. It wouldn't be across town at price cutter for 10. Right? And it wouldn't be across town again at Dollar General for $3.50 right? Nothing else works like that

spk_1:   13:04
now, But descriptions that they've got such a broad leeway on what it is that that that they can do it. It's almost seems to be like arbitrary inflation.

spk_0:   13:15
It's nuts. And this is why I tell people you know, when they go, will single payer single payer single pair as a single payer isn't what It's not that we don't have single payer. That makes this. It's the fact that we have insurance companies and the government when it comes to Medicaid and Medicare constantly negotiating with all these providers, right? And they're adjusting their adjusting. They're adjusting their dusty. So since each provider has a different negotiation going on on different things. It just excuse everything. Nothing makes any sense,

spk_1:   13:52
right? I mean, it's a It's a It's a shark tank of politics involved with. I mean, dear, it's people's lives, man.

spk_0:   14:03
And that brings me to the Corona virus. Because as we're seeing more than current virus people going well, wouldn't it be easier if there would be? Ah, if there was universal health care? No, no, it wouldn't be. We just be in longer lines, right? Waiting to get the help. You know,

spk_1:   14:21
standing in line infected. No, passing it along, letting him mutate. Yeah, but while we're waiting in line for medicine clean water bread.

spk_0:   14:32
So one of the medications that I'm on now because of all this is when I said my labs are all out of whack, the I came back. And, uh, testosterone, your low spot, depending on this scale, use the scale. The place I was using was 200. That was low. Mike came in one day at 1 59 came in the second day at 51. It was just crashing. No goodness sakes. And the docks is is there anything stressful going on in your life right now. Did you

spk_1:   15:04
try to identify as a woman with disaster on?

spk_0:   15:05
The women had more than me. At that point. I think

spk_1:   15:11
I've got a sister that can grow better mustache in May.

spk_0:   15:14
Uh, so anyways, um, because of that, I've been shopping around looking at a lot of stuff. And that's how I found out about this supply chain that we were talking about that, you know, in it's the same kind of thing that most masks are not made in the United States, right? Although a guy from the CDC said the mask is useless, he said, You know the normal unless you got a C 95 mask. The normal surgical mask has too many holes and things around, he said. It's going. It's fantastic. If you're trying not to spread right, it's useless for keeping things out, right? Uh, the surgical mask is made so the surgeons cut in on you knees, you know, do whatever he's got you splayed open and all that. It's to keep him from sneezing, coughing whatever into you

spk_1:   16:09
any any sort of vapors discharge

spk_0:   16:12
into you, right? It's not to protect the surgeon so any was, uh And that's another thing, by the way, we don't make in the United States. And, you know, I don't I don't I'm not a machinist, but I don't know how long it would take to ramp up a mask. Factory e? Uh,

spk_1:   16:30
not Not exactly. Sure. I'm kind of proud of the fact that well, in my shop, my particular mask for and there is a seal's better than the cheap ones and they are American made.

spk_0:   16:41
Oh, yeah, The the stuff for asbestos removal and stuff like that are fantastic, right? You know, just trying to find one right now, and I'll admit to everybody listening. I This is my downfall. I've looked at those and I have contemplated him, and I've even looked at the different filters for different things. And I keep telling myself I'm not sure this is the one I want to dio. And I've told myself that until I talked myself out of it. So I haven't gotten one of the heavy duty ones yet. Right? Because every time I think this is it, this is what I'm gonna get. Then I go, I'm not sure.

spk_1:   17:21
Are you talking about about a mass that protects you from like an NBC mask, like a 95? Or are you Are you looking more like a particulate?

spk_0:   17:32
But well, they got they have some of those you could buy him at Home Depot, you combined with those that you can buy the different filters that are different colored and like there's some that are good for chlorine and things like that. Then you get different filters there Mawr medical style, and you get more for And that's part of things I'm like, which now, which filter do I want to stock up on? You know, and I've never pulled the trigger I should have, right? Um, instead, my plan now is I've got enough food enough everything else that I could literally not leave my house for four weeks. Easy now. So that's instead of needing the mask, I'll just stay home and not talk. T o. That's

spk_1:   18:19
ahead, you think. Is it a good portion of the, uh, your bread winning job is a lot of stuff that you oh yeah, can telecommute

spk_0:   18:28
and it's getting more and more. I've got I got ah yesterday 13 requests for video conferences. Oh, Yeah, and I mean, I love him because they don't need to see me cry. So I literally can put on a decent shirt, take part in them in shorts, right? Yeah. They don't know what I'm wearing beneath my Rio from the chest down. And so I'm like, the news guy, you know, that doesn't deal. That comes in. And the jams. And then, uh, for those you were born after the nineties, G m's were shorts. We were in the eighties. I just dated myself with

spk_1:   19:06
your Karachi sandals. Yeah. So, uh, wearing your SWAT

spk_0:   19:12
Joe. Now, I did have a coal last night. I've had some people text me and things like that, saying, What can we do? Kind of last minute. And I had a cold last night. I didn't think I would get. I thought this was I thought this was urban rumor type thing. Okay, I had seen the pictures on Facebook identity list. I'm like this. This is just certain locations. This is just certain locations. Had a call last night from my daughter in Kansas City, and she says, How you doing? I said I'm good. She says you all stocked up So you know why? Well, you know what we do. And she says, uh, she's coming down next Tuesday to pick my other daughter up and go keep her for a few days. Okay? Spend some time together, she says. So you're good in toilet paper? Yes, I'm fine on toilet paper. Yeah, expire. You want to bring some down? And she says, No, no, I'm wanting to pick some up. Well, how much do you think you need? And she says, All I know is I've got enough to make it to next Wednesday and she says, I cannot find any in Kansas City.

spk_1:   20:25
I said it before. I'll say it again. You get to any people too close together. They start going crazy.

spk_0:   20:29
And I said, And I said, Well, do they have any plans? She says every store she spoke to said, We have maybe one pallet coming in on such and such a day. First come, first served, uh, and they weren't even sure if that's what they were getting. Because they're trying to spread all this teepee, you know, over the nation, right? And, uh, I go, we're done with this. We'll have enough to physically spread TP, although, uh, and, uh, we're gonna we're gonna tp Canada. So I said, Well, yeah, I can let you have some. Yeah, and that's not a problem. And I was so proud after that, if I felt like my daughter had just graduated. Uh, you're an Ivy League school with a membership in the skull and bones, you know? And she says, You know, I think it's time I start planning for stuff you're getting through. It was like getting through. Hit me right in the fields. Hit me right in the fields. I said, I will help you. I said I will help you. We will. We'll do this. And, uh uh. So then I hung up with her, and I'm talking to Tony, and I said, You remember all those years I kept saying, Just buy it at Sam's Club by the big package. It doesn't go bad. Yeah, you know, there's no expiration date. All that didn't you fought me on it. So come on, let's just do this and we're doing it. And now we're not worried. We have no concern. You, uh they're saying the stores air out and we're fine. Yeah, and she says, I don't want hear about

spk_1:   22:16
I mean, you know, I'm good for I mean, just on T p. I mean, I'm good for Oh, probably next month, month and 1/2. Maybe even two.

spk_0:   22:29
Well, you have less people in your house now. Now, this time last year, that wouldn't lasted you three weeks? No. Yeah. Uh, So, uh, but remember I said, I'm looking. I'm looking pretty smart now, aren't I? I I don't want to hear it. So, uh, I I took I don't want to hear it as her way of saying you were right. We're good because, you know,

spk_1:   22:55
you're right. Now shut up about it. Yeah, so? So I'm married to I know that tone.

spk_0:   23:01
Um, and you were, But here's my might my issue with all you people. And I'm assuming if you're listening to this podcast, you're not one of these people, so I'm probably talking to a wall. I just before the podcast today I stopped by Wal Mart. I walked around and ah, sure enough, the the, uh, toilet paper was wiped out.

spk_1:   23:29
I love that her, like a toilet paper. Is

spk_0:   23:33
Wyatt not any on the shelf now one picture I saw. I think it's time for sales. And yes, I know it should be verse I. But if you go for sales Missouri, they correct you and tell you it's not for sails. It's is not oversight. It's for sales. At which point I remind them that we have towns in Missouri like Bo Dark, which is spelled the French way. Right? A little town called ST Louis. Yeah, you know all this. So But he was They won't get

spk_1:   24:06
it. And when I went to high school in Eldorado Springs Dorado instead of El Dorado and then I worked. Then I lived and worked for six years in a town called Naveda, not Nevada.

spk_0:   24:19
And we're just up the road from my Amma. No. Anyway, I'm going to Miami is really dumb because it's named after the same Indian tribe. Miami. Florida is named after right, But they say they're saying that the right way it was

spk_1:   24:35
I I don't know what to do. I don't go to the casinos very often.

spk_0:   24:40
Uh, so anyways, uh, I'm walking around there. The bullet paper's gone. Paper towels are still fine. Napkins are still fine.

spk_1:   24:54
Some people just aren't tough enough to use paper toe.

spk_0:   24:56
Well, I understand you don't want to flush a paper towel, right? I understand that. That's I I perfectly get that thinking. However, we're dealing with a virus. We're doing something antibiotics won't touch because it's a virus. And antibiotics do nothing for viruses. Correct. So fine, you can You can wipe your backside so they go, Well, we're gonna kill the virus with these life soul Clorox wipes. They're all gone, right? Here's where my issue stands with the average person in America today. They for gotten how to do basic things. Because you can buy so much, right? I use I got some right here. The disinfectant wipes because they're handy.

spk_1:   25:54
Yeah, next year. Half gallon of hand sanitizer,

spk_0:   25:57
which was a birthday present from you.

spk_1:   25:58
Well, that's typically what I get you. I I changed it up this last year,

spk_0:   26:02
but but here's the thing. It's cheaper and you get more. You get so much more if you buy the bleach right. If you buy the life sol cleaner if you buy a latte and use paper towels, right paper towels, paper towels to me are much more important in this situation. And yes, I know you can use normal towels. Right? I know that, but the paper towels our throw. You can throw those away. Just wanted he will use them. Just run away there in the trash. They go there they go toe the landfill. They're not keeping the virus in your house. If you have any living virus on the paper towel, it's now in the trash, Not in the laundry. Right? So why normal? Everyday people have already for gotten that. You can spray wipe,

spk_1:   27:05
and we're not talking about your backside. We're talking about surfing. Service

spk_0:   27:07
is in your house and kill this fire killer virus killed the flu kill because it's on the on the Lysol bottle. 99.8 99.9% of flu virus. And, well, apparently, we've forgotten that they're buying up these pre packaged things until they're gone. Leaving paper towels, bleach on the shelf,

spk_1:   27:32
right? I mean, well, in the business endeavor that that I'm selling every day, all the stuff surfaces are all wiped down with bleaching water,

spk_0:   27:43
you know? And that's a lot and lot of times that's required by the Health Department. because it works,

spk_1:   27:50
right? They know it. That's why it's required by the health Department. Because, you know, sanitizing any dishes, everything. All your prep surfaces in the kitchen and any touch surfaces and the rest of the building I go through and wipe it all down with set with bleach. Water

spk_0:   28:06
and health departments never come out. What? You know that those towels and bleach No wipes. Gripes? Yeah, Yeah, Gotta wipes. There's nothing those wipes do nothing except or handy, right? That's it. And my my complaint with him. One thing I think I think of my grandmother of when I use them that she would just It just be such a waste for her is when you use all the wipes, there's always a lot of the liquid left right in the bottom because I usually pour that out on the counter and and then use a paper towel with it. Um, so, yeah, I, uh yeah, I can't believe that as a society, we're So who fixed on the easy quick that we can't remember that just 20 years ago, thes things didn't exist.

spk_1:   29:01
20 years ago, 50% of the products that are on the shelves that exist

spk_0:   29:04
so and I'm on this is likes it for this audience is probably wrong thing to say. All those things, all those cleaners on, on on the things there's all the different names, they're pretty much all the same. They're all a variation of bleach and some other and some other. Maybe there might be a soap type thing in there. A detergent? Yes, sir. Effective. So a ll that. But they're all they're not that different. As long as you got something that will kill the virus, kill the germs. You're pretty much there

spk_1:   29:45
well, and the hand sanitizers disappearing. But if you walk over to the pharmacy section, you'll see that isopropyl alcohol and Oliver gel still sitting there, which is hand sanitizer.

spk_0:   29:54
Which, by the way, um, if you are gonna make it yourself, that's the way to go. Do not try to use vodka.

spk_1:   30:00
No, the alcohol contents too low. And it's a good and it's a terrible waste of vodka. Unless it's the cheap stuff in the plastic bottle on the bottom shelf.

spk_0:   30:08
And don't use Everclear. I just can't think that as a general rule of thumb, Mama, I found this out the other day that Everclear It's such a high concentration of alcohol that it can actually encapsulate the virus instead of killing it. Really? And then when the alcohol burns off, you've still got the virus.

spk_1:   30:31
So it kind of goes around that that that sort of fat layer that the virus uses protect itself.

spk_0:   30:36
Apparently it it just does not kill it off. It will encapsulate it and all that, but not penetrated because of the, uh, the molecular structure. Because the high part of you

spk_1:   30:48
is it because of the type of alcohol of grain alcohol versus an isopropyl, since the isopropyl has a smaller molecular structure than a grain alcohol.

spk_0:   30:54
The thing I read said in particular, don't even even even you, even if you're using rubbing alcohol to keep below 80% right, which I don't know the last. I don't think I've seen 100% alcohol outside of a fuel additive,

spk_1:   31:10
right? I think my utmost for 70% that don't you see?

spk_0:   31:14
They said, don't 70% good, don't go over 80 because and maybe that's where people were distilling it themselves. Maybe that's what that is, but I had never heard of them before that that high alcohol content can actually encapsulated and then burn off. And you still it doesn't destroy the virus. It just encapsulate sit until the alcohol dissipates, and then you're still left the virus. So I, uh, don't use everclear. Don't use, you know, if you've got any, uh, if you got any thing you add to your fuel to keep it from freezing No, that would be a bad idea to

spk_1:   31:56
heat the perfect. Uh, no. I keep my my use of Everclear pretty well limited to, um, uh, making punches for, like, wedding receptions and things. And

spk_0:   32:13
every quarter is fantastic for killing brain cells. Yeah, if you want. You know, if you're wanting toe lens memories, Everclear may work.

spk_1:   32:23
There's a couple of weekends of my late teens at a bit of a blur.

spk_0:   32:27
Thankfully, I, uh I've never been on that side by know people who have that just, you know, it's ah really race erase A few days for you. You you'll, uh no, my my

spk_1:   32:41
curiosity in with this vanishing toilet paper, the toll of ever being wiped out it is, um how exactly does that correlate to any of what the CDC is put out about symptoms of the, uh, the this Wuhan Corona virus. The cove in 19.

spk_0:   33:08
I have thought about this. And here's my guess. This is purely my guest. Okay? Because I don't have the mindset of the people doing this.

spk_1:   33:17
You're not You're not a panicky little freak.

spk_0:   33:20
I need to find one and have them explain it to me. Because But here's what I think it is. Okay. It's a reactionary coping mechanism where they know they should do something, but they don't know what to do.

spk_1:   33:40
And so they wait for maims on Facebook to tell them what to do.

spk_0:   33:44
Well, I think Well, if it's a snowstorm, right, if it's standing out bread, milk, go roll fast, right? You know, they say Okay, we got a blizzard coming in. This your whatever Ice storm people go out, wipe out the bread, Milk,

spk_1:   33:59
bread, milk, bottle, water.

spk_0:   34:01
Go. So I think this is there, like, Okay, we're gonna be sick where we may be sick, or it may just be we can't leave the house for two weeks, right? I I And and so they're just grabbing things and they see right now. I was told by somebody that this run on toilet paper was started by a post where a guy said, The toilet paper is all gone imposed the picture and it just kind of went across the nation.

spk_1:   34:30
But see, I have a slightly different theory. I think I know why the toilet paper is disappearing. Considering what's been going on in American politics here recently. I think it's just test run to see what it's gonna be like if Bernie Sanders was actually get elected. I mean, next, we'll be practising for bread lines. Mm. You know, be alright. You know, of course. I hope the eating of pets and burning money in the streets doesn't necessarily take on like it didn't in the socialist success of Venezuela.

spk_0:   35:10
Well, I mean, maybe so. I I don't I think it's an animalistic thing. I think it's just I don't know what to do. I'm going to go the store. No, no. Go by what I consider staples, right? Yeah, I made. And I may be wrong if you know anybody who has done this or you know anybody that can explain it. Please have on email me, Jeff. Ajay to gas dot com because I'd love to know what the impetus is for this.

spk_1:   35:36
I I would like to see what? How on earth would we even acquire sound data on on that? I mean, I think speculation is what we're left it because, I mean, this is gonna be a tent. This is gonna be a temporary state. And then, you know, total paper sales air gonna plummet overall, because total paper consumption is not necessarily going going to be up. I mean, there's gonna be this this huge move. I mean, just looking at it. Economically speaking, you know, there's gonna be this huge push on it and then but the actual use rate of use and consumption isn't going to go up. So a lot of people are gonna be dabbling and prepping on this. I mean, personally, I like to stay a little bit ahead of the curve, just as a matter of convenience sake. You know, I buy my staples every couple of months.

spk_0:   36:21
Well, I mean, yeah, I mean, that's why I say this. This is probably the wrong audience. Yeah, to bring this in front of, but

spk_1:   36:28
it's a great audience to be able to laugh at those other people, though.

spk_0:   36:31
You well, and you know it is because, you know, it's like I said, you know, my daughter when she started coming down this I said, You know, I really Well, I said I really would like for you to acknowledge that all those times you thought I was silly or kind of working out right now, So you Yeah, I understand. It's all right. What did you guys understand? You know, you know, when you were dead, why are you putting all the stuff in the basement? Yeah,

spk_1:   36:58
well, why are you here for the teepee and £15 of spam?

spk_0:   37:03
Well, and I need to look at that. I don't know how much spam I have because harder has an addiction. Carter will will shout down on some spam. One of the pickiest eaters. I know when he will just inhale that I don't It is

spk_1:   37:17
bam and Reese's cups. That's his two major food groups.

spk_0:   37:22
And don't try to stand between him and ice cream. Uh, I buy some. I'll buy half gallon ice cream, and usually about 12 hours later, I'm looking at it going. This is full. Uh, that

spk_1:   37:38
mine. I need his help cleaning out a freezer work.

spk_0:   37:42
So we, uh uh, Yeah, that's I don't know. I may be wrong, but I think it's just that nervous I have because I have. And I'm speaking as a person who would do this. I haven't done anything. I have spent the last 5 to 10 years go into the store every other day going to the store as I need every little thing ordering it from Amazon or things like that. So now that there's an issue, now there's something coming I have not trained my brain to adequately look at it. Similar is if somebody rolls up on an accident and they have no first aid training, I have no one nothing else. And they just panic. Yeah, that Yeah, because they owe you of a friend of mine who is a a sheriff's department officer and been on It's been on patrol. It's no longer a patrolman. He does other things now, but, um, he shared the one time he said, because he's Tony. Why does? He's glad he's no longer on patrol. He said you came upon an accident where a guy drove underneath a semi, and he said the guy was fine from the bottom job down. Now they said from the job from the top job up e was a smear because that's the part that hit the truck right as he went under it and he walks up to the car nurse. Somebody who saw the accident is right there and he walks up. He looks in there, a kind of backs up, taking everything that you know and decide how he's gonna proceed. And the person comes over a ghost. You gotta helping do something. You know, it had the melted clarity able to assess the situation. They had no way of being able to go. This is really bad.

spk_1:   39:55
He's he's in a stable of a condition is he's going to be.

spk_0:   39:58
And but they were just They were. They were in a state of shock and had no idea because they had not ever been prepared for this, which, thankfully, most people don't need to be prepared for something like that.

spk_1:   40:09
Yes, I think this is an example of ah, pretty, pretty worst case scenario,

spk_0:   40:15
right? And now the friend. He's longtime sheriff's deputy multiple tour combat veteran. He's on top of this, he says. He's seen this. He's seen worse. You seen? Not as bad. He's been there, so you know he's there now. But the but the guy who hadn't and the guy who probably like most of us never assumed he would see such a thing, right? He could not even think logically. A lodge, A person thinking largely could look at this and go. There's no helping this person

spk_1:   40:51
but his His logic is logic at the time is an emergency service Personnel showed up and they're supposed be rendering aid. There was an accident. There's somebody that's obviously injured. There's a lot of blood. So you're here to help the situation. So So

spk_0:   41:07
do something. Yes. Yeah, and I think that we're any situation in a different sense like that, where all the all these people who have gotten used to our society of pick it up because you need it ordered as you need it. It'll be there, and it will be the Amazon. And in the bigger cities in Kansas City, you can have Amazon delivered in hours for groceries.

spk_1:   41:38
While yeah, I think some of commercials for like two hours or something like that. Uh,

spk_0:   41:44
some friends of mine were talking online, and one of them said, Oh, I really wish I could have this certain kind of coffee. I can't find it, you know? And she lives in Kansas City. Should I might well find it. And a friend of hers in Denver ordered the coffee through Amazon. Had it delivered to her house a few hours later as a gift.

spk_1:   42:06
What an amazing time to be alive.

spk_0:   42:08
Yeah, I mean, just and it is, But it's also spoiling us resolutely. So, you know, it was it was just the kind of thing that I, you know,

spk_1:   42:19
it's fantastic convenience. It is great to be ableto live in the good times. But if we want to keep the good times, we have to remember the lean

spk_0:   42:29
times And you will this mountain dew kickstart I'm drinking here. One of these three Amazon, they're cheaper. And ah, I could order 12 of them for what it would cost me to buy four of them

spk_1:   42:48
all out at the store. So, uh, yeah, I want to get one of those one time. And and they asked my firstborn.

spk_0:   42:54
Yeah, the other there. Less than a buck. A backup piece through Amazon where they're, like 2 75

spk_1:   43:01
Great. Thanks for telling the guy. That's gotta start laying back on caffeine.

spk_0:   43:05
So, uh, I order him. They come in a case. I put him in a refrigerator, and I do that. But this isn't a staple. No, this isn't It's an indulgence, right? It's not toilet paper or medicine, right? Were you know, things like that, You know, there's I know, you know, with the testosterone I take now, I'm a member of some online communities, and there's some guy's freaking out because they're like my medicine gets shipped to me every month. You know, I don't have it filled locally. Oh, do this. You know, Am I going to keep getting it? Am I going? You know, and it's the kind of thing that will it kill them to not get it. No. Well, they feel horrible. Yeah, they're gonna be

spk_1:   43:54
and yeah, I mean, especially somebody can definitely be a testament to that difference. Oh,

spk_0:   43:59
God. Yeah. Um, my life if your ah, you know, if you're feeling down there and they're trying to get you on anti depressants and things that make sure they do a testosterone desk. Yeah, sure, they do that first because, uh, well, they put me on antidepressants first and about Got arrested. Yeah. So in a court room? Yeah. They raised the dosage until I was agitated. I just I was walking around just constantly agitated, trying to box the bailiff and ah, I mean, it literally did. And I said, I can't keep going is I gotta figure something else out. And that's when they really started running tests and all that and found out that, uh, you know, I didn't even qualify as a female with the matches. Oh, my goodness. Um, so, uh, you know, it's definitely something. I've been telling people that it may not be your problem, but least take a look at it especially. And this is actually I'm gonna tease real quick here. I'm working on a new podcast. I've talked to you about about men's health and things like this. But men, um, you know, if you're having issues with lack of energy, uh, just not feeling you're you're quite right. And you're not sure about whether it's depression, Whether it's anything else, have this checked out. It is a night and day difference for me. Uh, I I feel 300% 400% better.

spk_1:   45:38
I I can I could definitely see it any in our interactions. And I'm anxiously awaiting my test results toe. See, you know, the I don't like the excuse of, well, a man of your age. Well, first off, you can bite my furry white bum. And don't talk to me like that. And but let's let's look into these into these issues. I and I have some inputs on, uh, cost effective and simple solutions for, ah, a debilitating back pain issue I had been going through that I can't wait to add on. Add on to the broadcast. You're doing

spk_0:   46:23
well. Uh, you know, I got told that for the first time, that, you know, age thing a couple years ago when I went and got glasses, and, uh, you and I be my My prescription is very, very light is, um, interact. Most days I can go without it. Uh, it's mainly for because I have an astigmatism, but I still have 2020 vision. Nice. So I need forget stigmatism because you were driving at night, that type of thing, I have to have it. So, uh, but I went in and and the girl and it was a girl. She was early twenties, checking me out. She says, What? You're really lucky. And I thought she was gonna tell me I'm really lucky because I still have 2020 vision. Oh, you think so? She was Well, yeah. She says to not be getting by folk ALS at your age. Just give me the glasses. Just Wow. So I But you're right. I mean, as you get older, the more you go in there and they want to dismiss a lot of things. As at your age, they keep one. Tell you at your age you're supposed to feel tired, right? Your age, you're supposed to feel worn out, and

spk_1:   47:41
I'm not ready to be tired, all right? Ready for a war that I still have too much to accomplish? No, I

spk_0:   47:45
agree. I totally agree. And I, uh um U um it's it's one thing I've been going to the gym a lot more since. You know what? I was going to him before I got put on it, right and It just wasn't doing much.

spk_1:   48:01
You were dragging yourself to the gym. Let's be honest.

spk_0:   48:04
Oh, yeah, I was I was feeling myself with caffeine and going in there. Uh, I started doing that when Tony got diagnosed, and anybody that has spent time with me that much knows one thing I detest is being a cliche. I just don't know. I never wanted to be. And so I went, I was going to the gym, and I got to think about why is this? My must've driven. You can't fight cancer by going to the gym, and they found out you can a little, you know, losing weight. Things like that help maintaining good health. My number one. So I decided that, uh, what it waas was the control I was in a situation I could not control was going on with Tony. I could not control it was going on with my dad. I was feeling this lack of control. But when I went to the gym, that's all it was I fully controlled when the weight went up for control. When wait went down, I fully controlled when I did, you know, if I did a plank if I fully control. That was my control, right? Every little thing wasn't was a exercise in control. A cathartic outlet. Yeah, and ah, my brain like that, Mike. See that? And, uh so I got to think about it, and I got to doing some research, and I found out that it's very common that when somebody when a when a spouse or a family member comes down with cancer, it's very common for the other spouse to start working out to start doing things like this. It's just a natural reaction of I have to do something right. I'm driven. I've got to do something and I can't heal this person. I can't do anything. So I'm going to go and just do this, right? And it's actually very, very common. I was I was here. I was so proud of myself. And I found out that it's very it's like, what? Everybody test.

spk_1:   50:08
I build things in that in that in that situation for me, I have to have the intellectual exercise.

spk_0:   50:16
Yeah, uh, so he has a whole I'm a cliche. I really try not to do that. That's Ah, you.

spk_1:   50:24
It doesn't help. I mean, if I'll think of herself with the cliche,

spk_0:   50:28
maybe more of a statistic. Well, could be.

spk_1:   50:31
I don't think that helps. But you know

spk_0:   50:33
what? More really quick aside, time on my eyesight. It's amazing that I still have has good eyesight, as it did since, uh, early July late Junior which, like Tony and I were not having the best of times and I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. And she was moody. She was easily upset. She was all this. Now what? I did not know what she had already been in for the mammogram, right? And she knew they had called her back and said, You need to come in for a biopsy now a woman who was like a second mother to Tony, we oh, watch her for years, struggle with breast cancer and finally pass away from it. So this was very nervous her, But she never told me about any of this. Yes, she was bottling up, and it kept coming out us assed anger and things like that. What am I doing wrong? Well, just to compound it on the fourth of July, the kids were shooting off those mortars and they got tired of doing it like I don't want to store these days. So I go up, I set up five of them in a row, and I light one and I go to the other end. Well, I dropped Molly. I like the 1st 1 negative. Other end, the light one and I bend over light it and my brain had enough time to say, Why is that glowing? And it went off and it hit me right in the dean side of the head. Got all in one eye it just But it s I have this huge bruise and scabbed over area on the right side of my face where the mortar shell impacted. You didn't look after that. I completely forgot about that. So I went to the E R and, Ah, the doc comes in and he says, What's going on? I said, I can't see out of my eye. And he goes, Okay, starts looking at I said, No, no, no. I could see out of that one is my right eye. It's the one closest to the to the bruise. I said I could see out of that once his left eye and he literally stops. It goes. Did it hit you so hard? You don't know where you're right from your left? No, no, no, no, seriously, seriously, I said it. It hit their butts. This I So they got to looking at it, and they fixed it up. And I went to a specialist the next day and he gave you the all clear. It's amazing how fast eyes hell

spk_1:   53:08
on that note our listeners out there, if you

spk_0:   53:12
want to see this picture, it doesn't,

spk_1:   53:14
uh, of when Jeff got whacked in the face with a mortar round. Ah, comment on our on on our Facebook page J to cast prepping.

spk_0:   53:25
We could put that up

spk_1:   53:26
and yeah, if you guys want to see it, we'll put that will put that up there. Just We need a couple people that ask for it.

spk_0:   53:34
Oh, my gosh. Oh, that was it. And that happened, right? So Well, my wife's going through all this, and I don't know about it. I'm trying to blow myself up. It

spk_1:   53:45
was a risky behavior of a man of your age.

spk_0:   53:50
It was awful. It was horrible timing. And, uh um, So, uh, yeah, it was It was awful. It was just It was nuts. It was completely, utterly. And, uh Then a few days later, we find out that she does have toe. She did she, uh she winter for biopsy, and it came back. She had to be treated

spk_1:   54:13
last fourth of July. Just proves my point is it's just safer if you come over and and just deal with the chaos at my house where we do the big Fourth of July thing.

spk_0:   54:24
Well, it was just compound this and this is right after this happens, a drunk guy wanders into my yard. Oh, yeah. I wanted to talk to me about the noise and our neighbors Huge on the fourth of July. There's stuff going off everywhere. He's decided he's gonna come talk to me. So I'm staying with my hands over my eyes, you know, wonder and the family's going Are you okay? Or he comes up drunk. I need talk to be home. Like we just Dude, your timing's awful. Turn

spk_1:   54:56
around, walk away. It's over up there with us a couple days,

spk_0:   55:01
so, uh, yeah, uh, just, uh, it's just incredible. But, uh oh, it's, you know but thankfully, do the prepping. Uh, I had plenty of supplies on hand. I clean myself up, got myself patched up all before going to the e r. Yeah. So

spk_1:   55:21
last last fourth of July 1 of my nephews brought over some dirt bikes and four wheelers, and, uh, my nephew, KJ was ah, showing how well he could ride. Ah, full realer on a wheelie. And he was doing it in between my solar panels, my solar panel raise out my pasture. And as he makes it to the end of the solar panel array, he realized, Oh, my, what if Uncle Jesse sees me doing this? So he goes to bring it down from the wheelie on to four wheels, and it kind of catapult him up into the end of the seat where he grabs a hold of the front brake lever which just accelerates him over the handlebars. He never lets go with the handlebars, face plants on the rack on the front of the four wheeler. I mean, it's big utility for wheeler face plants on the front of it. Fortunately, his head broke his fall. His body coils up, mrs. His body coils up in a bit of a C shape and and he just uncoils back into a seated position where I'm standing in the doorway of my bar and watching this whole thing happened and he just kind of rolls up, hops off the full wheeler, please it running and one of my other nephews gets on. It just takes off. Doesn't even say a word. He didn't even pay attention. The fact that cagey did a face plant on the middle rack on the front of this thing he just takes off. But that's just that's a different story about not mixing power, sports and alcohol. And so my nephew KJ comes into the barn and I'm waiting for him to calm down because he obviously needed to for a second. And then he comes up. Mrs. Uncle Jesse, can you do this? Ah, do your doctor and thing on me and I turned around. Yeah, his forehead is just absolutely splayed open. So Ah, Dr Tricia Hefley, who was in our prepping for pets. Um, episode. She was over at the house, and, uh, she got a nice She got a good chuckle. She she and I like like thio mend wounds Thio together. And so she got a big chuckle is I'm I've got cagey laid out on the bathroom floor and I'm super glue on his forehead shut. And we're just giggling because I've got thanks to Doc Bones. I've got a nice say

spk_0:   57:52
you had a sutra kit.

spk_1:   57:53
Oh, yeah, And a stapler. Yeah. And since this was right on his forehead, I was just kind of curious about the death of the Staples and Skull bones. And I figured, I mean, you know, occasion would have been a great candidate to try this out on, but he opted for the super glue instead of Thea instead of the suitors in the Staples and Suitors or Staples. But yeah, now, now he's got quite a remarkable scar of up there. Uh, fourth of Julys. Definitely dangerous holiday. It is the day for me. I mean, it's didn't even have anything to do with explosives.

spk_0:   58:27
It is. But because of that, we were all you know. I mean, it just proves just like now because I love I'll pull. Admit it. I had I really felt good walking around Wal Mart today and looking at the bare shelves and just No,

spk_1:   58:46
I'm good. I'm good for two months on

spk_0:   58:48
that. Yeah, I'm okay. I'm all right. I don't have you. No worries.

spk_1:   58:52
So and that that that has been The thing about this is the majority of my daily routine has not changed. Every never every precaution that the CDC is basically putting out are things that I do habitually. Anyway, I wash my hands frequently just because I'm not gross, and

spk_0:   59:14
you never know. I know people laugh at me because I wash my hands because I, like, tie my shoes and then wash my hands. And I've had people. What are you You ever walked through a men's room? Yep. You know, as you think the germs just stay on the shoe. It's not just on the sole, uh, you know, have you ever, You know, you know, men's rooms, their own men's rooms will, you know, I've had him come up before. Just No, I'm good. Uh, you know, um I also, um Hey, I was talking about this with somebody. Hope about six months ago. I said I also wash my hands after I but my belt, if you want. Yes, I wash my hands after I put my belt. Why? I said, do you wash your hands after you use? You have to use the restroom. Yeah. What do you touch before you wash your hands? Uh huh. Oh, don't start doing that now. For

spk_1:   1:0:20
me, it's It's usually quite quite inclusive. You know why I get up and get dressed? Put Put my fans on everything when I get ready to go when I go to do any grooming before I leave for a single news wash my hands and I'm not necessarily obsessive about it or but it's just part of a regular routine, you

spk_0:   1:0:40
know? I mean, I just any time I touch something that may or may not be And I'm not even that worried about the Corona virus because I'm under 50? I have none of the co morbidity ves they're really worried about now. One quote, co morbidity. There's two co morbidity. Is I found out about last night? One is very obese. People have a hard time with it, right? And the other is smokers, right? And so if you're an obese smoker over 50 it's gonna be a rough day.

spk_1:   1:1:14
Be a rough day but the but the mortality rate is still a lot

spk_0:   1:1:18
higher among smokers, at least in China. This is based off the China number, right? And they say that because there's a lot of smokers in China. Yes, so they say older smokers, especially those who were obese, are the worst outcomes.

spk_1:   1:1:35
But it but still influenza A that I've already been through has that this year already has.

spk_0:   1:1:44
According to see Si's latest thing, Influence A has a one 22% death rate, right. This right now is showing a 2 to 4. This is basically they said, if it keeps going, were looking at, uh, upto up to 30 times a bad flu. Okay, as far as people infected in all that, uh, that was as of last night is what they were saying. But now some people were saying, Well, I don't believe it, because China only reported this is According to NPR yesterday, China only reported 15 new cases. Right, That's fantastic. If you're gonna believe China, Yeah, This is also the place that's been when people die has been attributed to things like natural causes and pneumonia and things like that, because, you know, they don't want it to look like they haven't don't have it under control. It's an authoritarian of authoritative, authoritarian, party casting, authoritarian regime. They need people to think they're doing something right. So the numbers out of China are not reliable.

spk_1:   1:2:59
Yeah, just not just not reliable.

spk_0:   1:3:02
It's gotten to the point in Italy. According to you, I've heard this from four different sources. Now that doctors and nurses and Italy are reporting that they're now making decisions. When people get to the hospital, they look at the age they look at the co morbidity ese, and they have are starting to make decisions of Do we try to treat you, or do we let you die because the hospitals are filled in the places that are getting hit with it?

spk_1:   1:3:30
Well, that's Ah, that's, um, post apocalyptic crap right there.

spk_0:   1:3:36
Yeah, they're they're they're just they're out of because one thing is I I want to say 40,000. That may be too many. That may be too little. It was an amazing number of ventilators in Italy, and it was it. Once I heard it, I'm like, that's all in the whole country. Yeah. You know, I mean, that's in the entire boot. You only have that many. They're they're running. They've ran out of ventilators. Uh, so they have to be selective on who gets him right? What? Not? And it's, you know, it's I was just I

spk_1:   1:4:12
guess I've ever tried to run a tally in my mind. On how many? How many ventilators would be in a developed nation?

spk_0:   1:4:18
Um, well, I mean, it's the kind of thing I think if you're like me, you figure they've got a lot. They're in storage somewhere. But you gotta storm. You have to buy him. You gotta storm yet So hostile being a numbers game, you know, there's only gonna order as many as they think they're going to use and and thinking we can always if one If we have five breakdown water, five more will be here in a week. And right now they can't do that. It's just like the masks right now. Um, you know, if a hospital or normally order 5000 in 95 masks, they're going to say that we believe this is gonna last. Is this long? Most hospitals don't stock for major events like this. They stopped for big events, not major events And, uh, one of these things the CDC guys listening to said he said, uh, his biggest worry is thistles going to come and go? He says, Do not think of this as a Corona blizzard. This is gonna be a Corona winter. It's gonna be three months before we're done with this, right? And, uh, he said. But the problem with that is, he says Corona is derivative may be the wrong word, but it's very similar to SARS and, ah, the Middle Eastern version, which, like Murs Murs, he says It's very similar in its construction and the way it works, he said. If we had made a SARS vaccine, we would be on our way and a lot farther along. He's The problem. Is is soon to SARS. Quit being in the news as soon as it quit being a thing. The funding dried up and we never made one, huh? It's almost convenient. Yeah, and he says So you know, in this one, I can't. They've got, like, a, uh, armor covered ant eater in China, and that's the one. That's what they think made that it made the jump from that to people. Okay. In one of the live markets in Wuhan, because they got the markets that, you know, they got all the animals. Some butchered, some not, or you can buy one. And the butcher it There's everything in these in these markets town 16 million people. Uh, and they will do all this. He mentioned one of those when he was over there. He said there was a pin with a with chickens over. Uh uh, orders. I think it was no ferrets. There was a kid chicken over cage of ferrets. Oh, wow. And he says ferrets are known for they they have diseases that can hop from them to people. Right. Aces. So the chickens air over this constantly, just defecating on these ferrets, right? And the ferrets air breathing in with chickens, air expelling. They're eating it, They're they're living in it. And he said So you've got He said in the United States, if you were to ask permission to set up a a, uh, experiment where you housed these two animals on top each other just to see what happens, they would never approve it, isn't it? This is such a volatile situation, he says. But you can walk around and they're stacked like this over there. So, uh, hey says we've, uh We haven't seen the end of it ends

spk_1:   1:8:00
and four decision making skills out that that are affecting a lot of people.

spk_0:   1:8:02
Right on the Joe Rogan podcast, he asked the Hiss. CDC guy said, Is this a biological weapon that got out? And the guy said, Absolutely not. He says this thing is so perfect we couldn't design it. He's only nature could put something together like this. He says, if we put all of our resource is we could not make the Corona virus, Huh? So he, uh, uh, you know, so that you put on your tinfoil hat That's accurate Or he's being told, Say that.

spk_1:   1:8:38
T clarify. My what was was not it was not a that's not making it through my tent foil. Okay, I just I just want to clarify

spk_0:   1:8:46
So, uh, but anyways, he was he a sane months and months now, this and ah, uh, he had numbers and I'll let that I'm going to try to remember, but a lot of lot more than the flu.

spk_1:   1:9:03
My my issue is is the economic panic over it. What the MBA is doing the, uh what? The Houston rodeo. They shut down, uh, that the different markets. Economically speaking, that's having a ripple fend based primarily off of fear off of this.

spk_0:   1:9:24
But it's exactly what the CDC is telling them to do. The only thing I've that we've done that the CDC said that was a bad idea. That these guys said that was a bad idea was once again on the Rogan podcast. He said, The worst thing we did was keep all those people on those ships on that ship out off of San Francisco. He said we should have brought him in. We should have quarantine him immediately, because all they did was just passed around this infection and let it fester and let it mutate. Right? He said we should have gotten him off. We should have got him in quarantine from each other as well as from everybody else. And he said instead, we left him in this cesspool,

spk_1:   1:10:06
right? That allowed it toe thio soup.

spk_0:   1:10:09
Yeah, and ah. Oh, I'll tell you this. I know you're a fan, but this is cemented my opinion of cruises? Uh, I usually Well, well, you know, but

spk_1:   1:10:24
I it to the Ebola thing, and it's

spk_0:   1:10:30
well, I'm not even worried about Corona. Really? I, like, said, I think if I catch it, my chances are pretty good. My family chances pretty good. I worry about my my parents catching it, things like that. But as far as me, I'm not too worried. The Noro virus that has major outbreaks on these ships is what would now see that you need all the toilet paper for? Yes. Yes. You know, that would make sense. Um, but really cooking. We'll wrap up, but I want to give. Uh, here's a couple of things that or at least one thing that I can think of to prepare. If you're out there and you're worried about your toilet paper, just stay away from who, Hot and Taco Bell, right? No, that's just those air that in my experience, those are the two biggest toilet paper consumers, you

spk_1:   1:11:22
know. And if you find yourself in a pinch, don't forget dried corn cobs. And if you get near any rocky soil out in the country, keep your eyes out for Bolin.

spk_0:   1:11:32
For those in Joplin. I can't speak of anywhere. L Well, I can't say. I just spoke to my father in Wichita this morning. It's mentioned this to him, and he says it's too bad you don't still have your truck. He says it. There's toilet paper in the aisles of stores and Wichita. I don't know how it got there. I know. What you thought ahead. I don't know.

spk_1:   1:11:52
My first guess would be a truck.

spk_0:   1:11:54
Yeah, well, I mean, I don't know why they got these huge deliveries, right? Like that. Somebody apparently, though a buyer somewhere went where I need this. Right? So they are. They ought to give that guy a promotion. Uh, but he says it's It's everywhere around here. Give him a commission. So, uh, you know, so that and maybe cut back on the fiber foods? Yeah. I mean, don't be eliminated because you don't want to be, You

spk_1:   1:12:22
know, you need to keep something squeaky clean.

spk_0:   1:12:25
Yeah, but you, uh, you know, just don't like, so I can't eat it. Who hot and make it out of the restaurant without any gas. Right? It's something. It's an oil. It's something that I have a reaction to?

spk_1:   1:12:37
