Welcome back let's find out if we've got anything wrong so far for another TDs -- -- leading -- pager or all right get.
Horror movie theater killer Greg you asked if you personality splits in the when it takes over knows what it's doing is wrong -- -- still be held accountable.
We got to be clear in -- schizophrenia which is some talk this guy may have.
He's not split personality that's associate of identity disorder schizophrenics can suffer from hallucinations -- can be delusional paranoid etc.
but it's not split personality.
Don't you think though that if this guy had that.
Problem he wouldn't be capable.
The amount of planning engineering and thinking -- sophistication that went into what he did which had which problem.
If he had schizophrenia.
Most schizophrenics are like that -- -- get that they are.
I mean from -- documentary is that is all I -- I mean they're they're fairly troubled they don't.
I can't imagine going at this great -- that.
And it it sounds like this -- just maybe had a psychotic for a person like I don't.
Yeah but in -- I got a great medical term he knew.
What he was doing.
Yeah I think what we're seeing here is the danger people who don't know what they're talking about talking about things you're talking about me and -- knowing me.
Yeah no I'm at -- I.
But we have an -- to -- and this is like nothing had no one's talking about -- yet.
Kevin Jamie you said you're both amusing to be skeptical of death penalty of both the -- seem to favorite in this case so what makes this special.
Well what I think every -- and high casualty events -- -- Howard.
Dean position he he he he he's oppose the death penalty for a -- likely circumstances with terrorists.
With with those who commit -- crimes against children and also in those who attack cops.
As may be a deterrent to do to do some of those things and in the grosses crimes to the people -- that.
Now can I always have how deep positions something a lot different and it involved here speed after.
-- and Tom Kevin do you agree with that.
I don't really have by an intellectual defense of why make exceptions for people who need to be executed its other people who do things.
That are awful enough that it makes me want to see them put to death.
And -- so it's you know just purely emotional thing but in this case someone to go at that time.
I just I don't always although in this case all of you except for -- to be opposed the death penalty generally.
I -- it always -- me -- conservatives who are rightly skeptical of government power and also.
Talk a lot about also rightly out -- government -- things.
Favor of the government having the power to end someone's life yet that's the reason -- -- -- in general skeptical the death penalty not because I necessarily think that it's morally wrong.
But because I don't trust the state with that kind of power yet.
Let's let's start to -- you -- would you like to do that.
Thank you the government would you like a posse forget your friends together and go down hang the guy I'm actually -- of individually -- I -- I have a -- -- Kevin have a lot less problems with vigilante justice and I do with the government excuse me I'm the best outcome of the situation would have been someone to stand up in the front -- and -- -- and then yeah.
-- and if yes which brings us to kind.
Now let -- just that.
And now I take it away from gun control.
Sammy said one of the problem -- that we really do when you're opposed to definitely that you have won the problem is we don't really have a death penalty that we don't really put people to death and then Kevin mentioned Texas which is true but you're right -- I entered the Colorado the last execution took place there in 1997 and they're currently only three people on that -- -- -- -- that's right so.
I they've been there for a long time apparently.
Anyone -- anything else there was talk about that a -- will long you can move along -- cut.
Penn State gets heavy NCAA sanctions -- Jamie if I understood you correctly your problem with this is that it's more about punishment then it is about preventing something like this from happening again that I understand that.
It's not have a problem that I'm finally punishment I'm deciding that I don't think it's -- -- turn -- dollar cut in the future for stopping other people's problems.
Did you just seems to me if you're the kind of person who's not gonna report sexual abuse of of our kids.
What's gonna make you do it's like if you're that screwed up this is gonna do nothing is gonna do it yeah yeah.
But if you have to be taught that that's wrong -- that you know you're kind of a lost cause exactly.
I Sammy said this is harsh against the players who had nothing to do with anything so it should be NCAA have done anything or should they just don't have the you know Paterno is dead send -- -- -- the president of the university resign is that it.
I don't feel qualified to weigh in on that I just think that what they did is it's ridiculous I don't I don't it's not a football issue I don't even know.
Actually I don't think it's any other business.
But -- -- you could sue -- bomb the first of all I should point out none of -- -- qualified to talk about anything else.
Anything so field so you should give your opinion I sense that you're no less qualified than anybody else here.
I disagree if you though I -- think it's a football -- like it it's an issue a football culture.
This cool efficient allow this to happen they they turned a blind -- even though they knew what was going on because the football program was more important to them.
So to me doubted that makes it a football issue in the sense and it's an issue football culture.
What are the drug culture is also frightening was it it was the college.
That needed -- I mean it that's how they make their money.
You know -- -- -- right away isn't isn't a law enforcement organization but did you ever -- To determine what sort of people and institutions and -- associate with him what turns him and I think in that sense is an appropriate thing here.
And there would be no pressure this was happening in the back.
Program there would be no pressure to cover anything up in the football program which is such -- you know -- there brings a lot of money right there is pressure to.
And abroad not that it justifies that doesn't -- but there is that's a focal issue.
Yeah no and that's why agrees that it's a culture issues and why some years the badminton club thing.
Yeah what does David they've never gotten into there's never been anything we just pointed out how we know about -- We know about its -- -- Greg it's cool that loss to Penn State are not now given victories -- -- when -- when his vacated neither team gets a win or loss for that game.
So wait a second that -- sense that's like almost that's like a good that's.
I don't get it it won't let I think -- apple hole spell.
I mean yes it was horrible like this isn't saying you can't think the winds up the right about one and nothing to do with the other.
-- I look ultimately that's kind of silly but -- don't you think that the the point of that was to make it so that Paterno is not the winningest coach in NCAA history because they didn't want that right.
You have when he is I mean yeah yeah tiger -- It was a horrific human being I don't see we're gonna happen is records.
No but I think I'd I'd think the entire reason it took those -- away is so that he's not in the record books -- it was basically it was it I'd have viewed him.
Can get into what is that as a consequence of winning the record books will no longer contain records.
Every time they showed on television in an NCAA game they're gonna have a master Joseph Paterno there is not like you're never gonna mention him in the talking about.
The winningest coaches -- yeah.
You -- why Joseph Paterno has not been right.
Putting -- -- in the official record book his name won't be there with an asterisk -- the only never -- the official record book.
I have I have been going back to 1840.
In my bathroom many -- great -- -- grade reading and what I finished every Guinness book of world records book.
Yes I needed something else quite a collection TV guys going back to seventy and I kept.
By the way Paterno family issued a statement saying the NCAA.
Ruling has defamed his legacy.
Which I thought was kind of the point.
And a machine -- -- -- really Chris yeah I don't think you can actually defame him and now point now I would never reputation my heart my heart does not go out to them.
Started toward when people like Tony Robbins seminar injured during a fire walk.
Sammy said he made -- -- -- of thousands of people successfully completed the fire walk not really.
And it's for that.
For the same reason that Tony Robbins seminar is a complete fraud.
Fire walking it has nothing to do with the power within or is Jamie brought up they said understanding that there's actually nothing you can't overcome.
What it's about as Kevin said is -- physics more specifically thermal conductivity but Kevin you had exactly wrong physics is why you can walk across hot coals.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- And actually if you know what I but I thought you were using it to say that's why all the people got hurt won't have because you -- when you have a better calls like that some spots -- really -- some spots off.
When you step on the really hot ones they burn you as it turns out.
Okay but that's not really how it works with the Gillis Colin as a -- conductor of heat and then there's a layer of ash on top of the cold -- also acts as a cushion.
And the key is the speed with which you walk over them now there's a physicist named David -- At university.
Pittsburgh I think.
And he's he participated in another world record fire walk the big world record firework -- 1998 you probably remember it yeah solid artists he was out there with a 165.
He says quote.
It is neither necessary nor advisable to run a brisk walk is reported to work best with each step taking half a second or less.
It's all about the speed if you do it at the right speed you don't get burned.
What's so -- -- do -- you see I don't think you can call it did the that a fraud and you could say it's a stick it's it's yeah.
It's something to do but I don't think he.
And call -- a fraud well I I think you can't I mean it it should be.
Did that Robin is saying that what you learned his seminar will unlock the -- -- to allow you to walk over calls no physics -- you walk over -- what do you attend a seminar or not.
But it can we say this at least the -- there's an unintended consequence here is that -- when -- when people.
Now we -- utilize the power within overcome third degree burns from which is -- -- -- challenge staff and perhaps civil.
I think the important thing is it's Friday kids watching that -- -- -- Could be important if Troy can -- -- don't if you run it.
You would think that's -- -- faster.
No if you run your feet -- down deeper and the hotter -- on the bottom right why you wanna do just a brisk walk kids you know -- -- -- get out all right can I just getting here right now I think.
Kids do not listen to these idiots do you got -- -- anything we even started the show canceled but if you are gonna run but under all that stuff.
With the kids I topic I think wearing shoes would be advisable to dyslexia was good idea which -- in -- Elway it from coal it's always the -- -- -- Nat King Cole which is great news and yes.
Cole Hauser the -- Terror may just think Eric in there to stay away from him go to jail lifetime chance to got a bad call on the scale like glycol a -- punches -- it.
-- -- -- -- Get a call get a call.
Oh yeah I like call -- -- hide it.
-- -- --
