Through February sixth two nine days in July on the Iheart Radio, app on Apple podcast or wherever get your bypassed welcome to step. You should know how stuff works, not podcast them judge clerk discharge the beach or try Jerry. You do that like what like that's what happened.
Like you're having a nightmare, and you may wake you up in the middle of the discovery of the virus and anti slaps yokels the page. That is what they thought. It sounded pretty accurate. I dont know worker enemy, you D, supercharged, about this topic, terrible supercharged gonna, get like a supercharged engine I didn't even think about the ogre that makes me feel you know Jerry by the way before, when I told you what we were doing so. Oh my gosh, that was my favorite toy. When I was a kid nice hot wheels are pretty great there, quite a collection- and I don't know where they are today. Oh really know missing yeah? I don't know if there were thrown out or refer via. My brother has emerged through my mom's attic or what There's some kind of curious will have any value you need to find em. They could be apparently, as
hot wheels collectors go. It could be in mid condition all the way down to beat her condition. I was highly rank. I'm here, I'm gonna be beaters cause I played with my crazy. Let's do it, I mean that's what they're for sure you know and their value for a better to like some people, apparently harvest and four parts to to rebuild like a new Frankenstein model are really that's. Pretty does a lot of stuff, you can do with them yet, and we should thank the fifth greater, who wrote this article two sad face. I complained about that allowed to highly has like this article actually says sad face like as a sentence. Yeah, I know, it is: I m glad you said something yeah, but if it was a bit better links are hurt. Your feelings are heard either way now said vase
so we're talking about how will today I had a couple of my favorite toy with Gee. I do, but I appreciate it hot, we'll schedule to restore the age. Europe said some time at the older ones. Tell you probably has a huge one, yeah yeah near the ruins Here. I don't that's fine words, man, the ones that I had were so awesome. They were like there is a huge fast collection of all one year is like cornbread, we didn't exist when you are collecting gee, I don't know, but how can you say like that when this tenant tall and has real close and fast here in the Kung FU group, is inferior to this little plastic thing. I think you just said it all fuzzy hair says it right, but I don't really mean that Chuck. I dont have a dog in that fight like if you like, the big ideas, it's cool, I gotta problem. Yet as a quick side. Now I have to tell
story, when you know how I used to do both reports and you have the visual aid, but I might have thought this before. If I do apologize, I don't recognize. I did a report on Franco Harris when how much scope as he was the football player yeah I don't know why they drank up here and there, but am I my mom, to make me little Pittsburgh Steelers Uniform from Nigeria joke. Is he looked like Franco here, nice? That was my visually decided now, of course we have the judges, but I think the Steelers uniforms come by that said. Do you know I'm sure you ve put a lot of work into that now. I feel guilty so Chuck overcome for you, yes did you know that the number one vehicle manufacturers on the planet is in fact hot wheels. I did a kind.
You just standing until you stop and think about it. You're, like apparently since nineteen sixty eight when hot wheels were first introduced. More Four billion hot wills have been produced, that's more than the big for Detroit automakers combined like wow, and they think oh yeah, it costs say my new fraction of the cost, to build a hot wheels than it does a normal car here, but also its only you're gonna go. I want to sir viewing cutlets supreme in every color comes in no way a hot wheels. You can do that here. What's the deal Instead, as though the biggest manufacture of tyres, the other yeah
I wonder, though, do these not count as tyres, because their plastic decanters wheels? I don't know man because four billion times for that sixteen billion tyres, that's a really great question. I have to challenge Lego or maybe just look up how many times they manufacture or Christians is not going to be happy about this. Who was at the founder vigour number all right about using old now over here. So let's talk about the history of the stuff. I forget, so how is like I said, have been around since nineteen sixty eight and anybody who heard the Barbie trademark Pike will recognise the name Elliot Handler Ruth Handler. The inventor of Barbie, trademarks, husband, church and Elliot apparently saw a real chance, the muscle in an already Baxter market by a company called
oh that had a line of miniature metal cars die cast. Cars is what they're called the called Match Box Car Centre, by the time hot wheels came around matchboxes already there and had established a market and Mattel said: let's go I met you and the rumor is that he saw his grandchildren playing with them and said they can't snake. I can make these better. Yeah cooler- and here I am as the story goes had a designer and which will talk about the second call Harry Bradley. And he had a hot rod. Anne Elliot was in the parking lot undated man. Those are some hot wheels. You got there in an apparently. If you goes look look at the old original commercials for hot wheels. They said that out. Well, that's how they pronounce it hot wheels to how we'll yeah, The emphasis is on the heart. It sounds awkward. They like ratio hot wheel,
you gotta make says you can raise him just go by some hot, we'll that's a day. That's how they say, collect all your hot wheels yet That makes more sense in the context of a sentence. Does yet having been raised right. You know post the IMF out we'll this wrong. You're hot wheels wheels now trying to picture the guy in the parking lot. Seeing those are some hot wheels. You gotta get there it's a hot wheels. You got there near a boy we can shirt. Waist we sure can, but the first nineteen sixty eight is like he said when the first line came out of sixteen hot wheels. Hey Were sold initially for fifty nine cent, apiece yeah and, like you said, the guy who's,
originally inspired. The name hot wheels was Harry Bradley and he was the designer of that. First, sixteen cars, they were also called California. Customs miniatures was that first arrived Sixteen group of hot wheels were released in nineteen sixty eight sir, Bradley Design, a mall, including apparently he got his hand. On the first one by the way that came out with a shabby camaro course. The second, when I came out, was the Chevy Corvette horse and apparently the shabby corvette came out before the actual corvette came out here. The sixty nine that that is so Harry Bradley was an old hand in noticed miniature car design, a car. I am in general he was an old GM designer and I guess he had connection still at GM and probably under the table in a possibly illegal way got his hands on the blueprints for the court
that had been released yet and hot wheels beat GM through the punch in releasing the nineteen. Sixty eight corvette yeah sixty nine thanks. That's right: the year as the logos he supposedly knew that the cafeteria door was unlocked, so he snuck in the cafeteria door, but let us call industrial espionage yeah. That sounds like a story like just lore coca, but may be so maybe he committed industrial espionage. Yeah so, like you said, those were the two of the first sixteen in their original line up that original collection, which, if you have any those he didn't get some the NOME king, I mean like they went out on those that original lie like there are pushing to the suspension yeah that I mean the chassis it had in suspension like shocks, were repressed
down in a word bouts back, I had some of those. I not think they were from sixty eight, but when did they quit, in order set up until a seventy seven was when they start making the other seven when the suspension down an overhaul. Okay, so for the first couple years, like we're really putting a line under these things. The tires were red line, racing slick- things, though the whole reason they went to so much trouble is because they really wine to destroy their competitor match. Ox in one of the ways we did that was by making these things far more functional than the match boxes were the matchbox cars were so they they really could raise your hand if you put a match box car up against comparable hot wheels. So the same model car here the hot wheels will destroy it every time in the head to head race, as we saw on the internet, a guy did that, of course, to get to work like listen to
Howdy AIDS. I think, and one matchbox, someone hot wheel, and he said they won by at least a car link. Every time he tried right- and this was no Luke, you blaming suggests the straight race. They painted them. Originally inspector flame, which was very shiny, sparkly an expensive Think we said the all hot wheels rebuilt at one. Sixty fourth scale, the out, it's a big point, but not necessarily a match, but car sick and a very here and there, but, like you, said Spectra, flame and the red line. Tyres didn't only lasted till seventy seven and mention only lasted till nineteen. Seventy, an ace sadly allotted it, had to do with the fact that they move them from author in California to Hong Kong, and now I can t product you. I can t you can make it for half as much if you make it in China
let's move as shipped operations overseas, was not only that it's. The spectre of flame pain is pretty expensive. Its awesome. It looks great near, but it's pretty expensive so with with any collectors item as they started to downgrade the components in the parts in them the manufacturing and ultimately the file all they did was make the original stuff all the more valuable today yet fewer and fewer about over the years. Go on proportionately speaking here they actual axles. Like you know, it was like a real. They were designed a car designers, and they were made apparently to reach two hundred scale miles per hour as critical as Waco You remember like in the cockroach episode we talked about other the fastest animal on the planet, relatively speaking, pretty need stuff here so check right out of the gate. Mattel had a head on his hand, oh yes, they release them in nineteen sixty eight by nineteen. Seventy how wheels
is a Saturday morning cartoon near in the vein of like dune, buggy and scooby do and all those guys Hannah, Barbara doing buggy your speed, buggy speed, buggy, yeah. Obviously buggy there was like a dune buggy, they could talk. Any was basically wonder, but now its people, Ok, there's anger about two. If you took shaggy and puts a migration goggles item here and then turns We do into a speed doom buggy here that speed buggy. I was at it
yeah I'll, be on solving mysteries and stuff. Like that, you're wonder, bug think I'll live action. This is a cartoon said. Marty cross. This is exactly like Scooby due by the people who did Scooby do using the same people. Who did the voices for Scooby? Do it's just vaguely changed the characters? The hot wheels was virtually the same thing, except there was about racing clubs or the bad guys, ragged guys and dear disperse. What is the drinking seventys? The doom buggy was very popular thing mercy and those on the road like a symbolic that not all the time, but in the seventies it was a common. Thank you I'll see him anymore. Very rarely now, no gremlins! No, you goes no, no wonder bugs You know I like gremlins, the you there okay. For me, though, the credit growth of car design is the AMC pacer yeah, it's like the form like a kitchen of car.
Yeah, it's beautiful in all the weirdest way so much window. There will be my sought after how wheels, if I had a hot wills that if I could one hot we'll get it. I don't know if it will be a buy it now. I'd be happy without that today have that as a hot, we'll, oh yeah. Ok, If you look up AMC, grandma and hot wheelchair, they went to town on those. They are somewhat like the the intakes like sticking out of the house India to start for two just awesome: different variations like car gremlins and stuff like that, because it raises a pretty good point, how we it's always been about the the racing design like they designed them to look like racing cars tat they ve also many accident to actually be able to win a race like we talked about with Matchbox year and one of the differences? That is one of the main differences between the Match Box in the hot we'll, as they were this much more interested in,
sport year, like you could get, you can get a match box like a delivery truck right. You know that they had their end, but the matchboxes look. For real, though there were about looking realistic, bright and not necessarily performance and hey. If you wanna bread truck even get a bread. Drug trade is very good that you can get a bedrock hot, we'll we'll talk more about all of this jam right after this yes
why do you travel to recover from heartbreak to trace your dna to escape the internet unpopular Rosati? I travelled for the four hour lunches, I'm darling, whereby I travel for the ancient ruins and future relic. We are the globe trotting founders of the beloved travel website fathom and our new podcast to go. Exploring all the reasons we Every episode features a tale from an interesting travel, but these are not your average. What I did on my summer, vacation stories travel, is all about wonder, mishap and discuss. And on this show you'll meet an actress in rural Kenya, explaining the ins and outs of safe sex or graffiti. Ernest tagging his way around the islands of South EAST Asia are produced around the high fashioned photos, youth in the desert, with puppies listen to awaited on the Iheart Radio, app on Apple podcast or wherever get your had cast
you wanna go and talk about some of the other differences between Match box, and I will read it: matchbox. Arms are hot wheel is the one that is more likely to have rounded versions: oh, do. They have like the ghosts, busters echo Mobile, right or even more the man like they have with eminent Mars, forty thousand fifteen, as it is that they have like a Twix trucks, skittles Van and like all this stuff. They have the law. Same thing with D C and Marvel this year fasten the furious another line, the up, so they there really big time into branded and a lot of times they'll have like a store, will just have exclusive access to an exclusive line of skittles cars, or something like that. You can only get it. Cavy toys, ya, think David NASCAR, deal too
mistaken. I wouldn't be surprised in the hot wheels, usually have a little bit wider a longer. Excellent wider wheels, because it's just cooler that we'll sticks out from the body a little baby. Now let us also supposedly and we'll talk about this little more. When you shrink car down to It looks a little weird yeah you months ago and bring that up. Ok, it looks weird you can't just shrink it and have it does in the same proportion and have it look normal right. I get all be as far as like shrinking a car down by scale. It will be in the exact same proportion by it. It's just off a little bit like so what they do to make a hot wheels racial. Is they expand the wheel? Well, a little more yeah, they break it out a little bit here, which is why the we'll stick out some minor on a hot wheels, but not on a match box. That's right because met boxes
All of our realism to hack without looks Zionism through the one of my favorite ones. I had one of these. The image in this article was the red baron at the the person who wrote this said it was an inexplicable and inexplicably cool helmet over the cockpit by inexplicable the roof of the car was a helmet, but I looked it up again today and as like, oh yeah, I had that thing, but it was a. It wasn't a nazi helmet per se, but it was that but the how mandatory? Like the? U S, that shape now, you know words cut lower around the ears instead of just a straight. You know like the war were to home at night, but the Nazis use those first better design for war, and it also had a black iron cross on the side of it will hence the Ribeiro night yeah, but it was its
He knows and delta. Look and say that looks like a low Marty hot rod year, but the Red Baron was war war. One hears Pre Nazi, Germany yeah, and it was also a think it. The time just like look like the biker gang sure would wear like those helmet with Iron cross yeah. There was southern Calvin you're, hot rod, culture, eggs, I would give rise to Hotmail. So it makes you think those any Laker teaches the innocent air. So I said right out of the gate. Wheels was a hit. They had a cartoon within a year or so of the first sixteen being released her the second release, they had. I think twenty two new cars yeah thirty three total and then the third year they they had another. They release. Thirty three after that right, I am sorry, thirty, three by nineteen seventy, so they did sixteen twenty four Thirty three in all of them came in late, different colors rights. Like I said she had won
They didn't mean more yonder collect them all here, so kids were going crazy for it, and another way that matter very wisely targeted children was too didn't with fast food, nineteen, seventy the first hot wheels came out as a toy jack in the box is really yeah the big one. Now the one that's like put them over the top, was in nineteen. Eighty three, when kids you lucky enough to be taken to Mcdonald for dinner the happy meal it together exert about real with what they called another time could get one of fourteen weeks in nineteen eighty three and they had some cool once their chevy citation. Did they really here
They had one that was one of my favorites. Actually, it was a tall Yoda. Many track, which is like a station wagon camper ended even said, painted on the side did time camper they you could get in your happy meal, which, if I can have one. How will it would probably be that you know what they were doing now that I looked back through my adult eyes, like snorting pot know they were giving you a bunch of crappy ones, because he wanted to keep coming back to get the Kohen near. Probably you like I've got a citation them. I cannot go back. His only get the hot rod. That's exactly what they were doing. Sure man, I feel so like manipulated more, do you think they were? with happy meals. Well me their nose or manipulation and get you to try and on all of them, but they should have been Collins. But you can't do that because the regular kid might be like now got. I got the Koran, I'm fine, but if you get this citation
You feel drift off and you really want to go back and get the one. The hotlines yeah it's my eyes. Wide open. My for well, that's why our friends down under in Australia have like outlawed marketing directly to children, which I think is a fantastic merrily It's so unfair the market directly to children. It's almost literally, is like taking candy from a baby right. Kids, aren't sophisticated. Inert is psychologically defend themselves from being like bombarded with by adults. To say, go. Tell your parents to buy you this. You can function correctly without this trapper keeper, so go get it the trap, a keeper, what do they make a law yeah, really there's a big money. Very progressive law without any one country should die, well in eighteen, eighty three, I agree wholeheartedly by the way in eighteen. Eighty three is
Happy meal thing happen and also the same year. They move from our Hong Kong to Malaysia and innocent when they had their economy cars, so that must have coincided with the citation yeah whose citation man one of the most disappointing, happy mill towards you can possibly get here because they were managed. Your dad who drove a citation who was always Magyar. Oh dear so checkers. Yes, after ninety three not happen we'll just kept going on expanding more and more mortar, They had another happy meals joint in ninety one or something like that and ninety five it's a rainy day. We need to do something big and they did they really something called a treasure hunt series which is
A purposeful e limited release, car receivers of car yeah. I think very they do the twelve models at ten thousand each originally yen, and hence the name treasure. They are hard to find yet and one of the cooler ones for me was the automobile for forty. Two everything is needed. Dude at my church had an for forty two and it was just ass, a man he is. He had like the only muscle car in the youth group. Then there's like two years ago, My brother, I was talking about this new Jason Singleton is like whatever happened him he's. I go. He still lives in that zone so and he went, and you know what do they know
He still got it. Oh yeah, why would you get rid of that? He still, he still has the car into his facebook page in it is like the centre of his life, I'm sure it's his baby. I mean he's. Had that thing, since, like nineteen eighty six inches, it's just up and he's to scare the daylight sodomy in that thing, but it was also exhilarating to be riding with him. Did he no like two hundred feet of drag. He would, by sharing power breaking in Uganda, where's, the tires a year, a visa in the passenger seagoing save ii, cheesy yells very scared, because I was you know I didn't fort with a wild eyed back then the old mobile for forty two is closed yep, exhilarating and then so that was ninety. Ninety five, the treasure hunting kind of went, didn't, go exactly as play him we'll tell us like. Oh, we could make even more money if we
for these and a wider release near to the original ten thousand releases were red down again and again and again such as your hunt, kind of became commonplace sure, but it was a good eye you're in it into this whole idea of collecting like metal, like we know, you're out there and we're going to design these. Just for you and we'll talk more about collectors, but just to Canada, but enough the history of how wheels it all came full circle in nineteen, eighty six, when Mattel bought Tycho and hence hot wheels, bought matchbox to their all environmental. At this point, I will get to the design and collecting ran after this. Yes, yeah
so back. Then, if you wanted to do a smaller version of a larger car and scale it down, you didn't have computer, aided design and stuff. Sometimes you mother had a blueprint which helped, but sometimes you just had to get out there in the parking lot, the tape measure and just take gas and measurements, and then I'm gonna be good at math right, basically, unlike likely said, Harry Bradley who's, the daddy of the hot wheels designs who's, the guy who did the first. Sixteen was a GM designer originally in his footsteps, followed Howard Reese and for that Larry Wood and they both those aside like the legendary hot wills designer at the Mount Rushmore hotly. Pretty much yes and yet they would. Literally go out and in measure these things now was one way hot wheels were born.
Another way was that in this definitely differentiates hot wheels from Match box. Is that there are hot wheels. There only exist in the hot wheels world Oh yeah yeah yeah, they they are called the fantasy cars like they're. Just the designers imagination come to life right, whereas matchbox only, I believe, has bred trucks exec, while they only have cars that are based on real Cartwright. Bright hot wheels has a whole fantasy mine. It's interesting that their own. By to the same company still in there, they deceive kept that distinction. Men like as some people are matchbox kids in some markets,
Could I had both having had a bedrock he's the way you can go into the breach of well now I d, never Bradshaw, but I do remember having a couple of like weird utility type vehicles are that I dont remember there are probably gifts, restocking, suffrage or something I am, I think I'll excited out. I was always in the tanker trucks I thought. Taco is great. There is obviously much bigger blows, relate construction vehicles, a dump trucks and stuff like that, and still today, that Volvo Dumptruck, the giant one year with the huge wheels, I think, is one of the cruellest vehicles ever created. Here, I think, had one of those- and I was a kid- I didn't have a lot of talk yourself. One of my favorite wheels. There was the little Red Express truck. Remember that, if you saw it you might, it might ring a bell. It was basically can't remember what kind of truck it was. I think is a dodge, but it was just a cool red steps. I pickup truck and it had the two
the two vertical mufflers on each side that up above the truck. I think I know you took my yeah yeah, it's really cool and if you go to the young Petersen Automotive Museum and allay oh yeah? They have a really cool exhibit there. There have been two in person, but I was looking out of line. Permanent, exhibit where they have the real life versions of the hot we'll cars and they have a little Red Express struck. In the end I saw it I was like well: did you die from nostalgia, magnitude up a little bit They have. You know that the gas eat up corvettes with the big chrome engines coming out of the herd and therefore for two none of the other four forty two, but I'm they will win. Your friend dies in his will, go straight to the museum. Yet
I'm gonna go to this thing that at some point out now in this next Ellie Trip or not, but I m it's right there, neither laborious, carpets, ethnic. Only zoning go check it out in their new sneak it. Isn't it But back to the design these days, you're not gonna need to take measures stuff like that you're gonna, Photoshop designs and you're gonna, even three printer lawyer, your prototype their head. You have helped them tremendous slow yeah, because you know with the if you're designing real, like cars, and you have a treaty printer, that's pretty handy but with hot wheels like you, can print out pretty much exactly what it's gonna look like her. And once they have, the the prototype done will make then make a more out of it and then injected with more metal under tremendous pressure fan. That's why it's called die, cast a traded die that you cast all of the instilling ones from Vienna, think they're made with less metal than they used to be, but they still
a metal component drain Julia. I haven't seen a new one in a while. I have neither, but I'm almost positively do an apparently there still about like a dollar yeah. I was on the Howells collector say today. Unlike they kept making reference to about a dollar suggests called the main line, you're the one that they make on mass the citation exactly You got your hands on at nineteen eighty three site a heavy worth. If he were here, I am but they kept referring to the mainland, such as a about a dollar while they just kept making their manufacturing cheaper and cheaper. So they maintain accosting us here. So as far as collecting goes, the most valuable, and that is not this crazy. Made out of diamonds for the fortieth anniversary, which will talk about a minute but the most able, regular hot wheel. Is the the sixty eight beach bomb, which was a bit of a bus and hot pink that had dumb real surfboard.
Get out of the back of it yeah. Originally, they only released a think. Twenty five of us like that there are a couple of times it was difficult to manufacture and with the Sir stick another back. Even though is more realistic picture, and it So I was terrible, unlike a loop de loop track. There is it, I guess the Surfboards leather weighing down her or gets stuck yeah, so they they only made just a few of these things, though the beach bomb that was the highest selling the how wheels ever was. Pink one. They made even fewer those, because apparently a lot of boys were like I'm playing with some think that, even if it does not call surfboards taken out the back, so the thing sold for, like, I think, seven something seventy five thousand dollars in two thousand, and it is since saw again into doesn't Evan. I saw unlike Ella magazine for like a hundred and twenty five thousand the flow of money for a tiny look. Our yet is
that's the highest whenever, apparently, by a long shot. Two year I mean I've, seen others it were worth like ten grand and stuff like, I think, one of those four forty two originals is like ten yeah. I guess I got a nineteen. Seventy mongoose or cobra are worth about ten grand these days. Out of a lot of them just like with any collectors over you'll see if there was just a few of our main? Obviously they're gonna be worth a lot more. If there is something that where they adjusted the design like, for example, the python, was originally called the cheetah yeah, and then they found out that a real life executive with real life lawyers that GM own, the name cheetah, is apparently GM executives, his own names for cars that could potentially be used. Like every manifest animal lambro exactly so they changed it to the the python, but there they that was after they started manufacturing the cheetah. So there's some out there that they choose
yeah seems on the bottom and if you have one of those it for ten green, yet funding to think about disabled star wars like sometimes that the mistake ones are the ones that are super viable, the guys like, though some recall, but like oh, but you want that one, because the above affects rocket really shot out before he had started choking on em right or letting on fire. If that's what you want, but it like you said it's all about scarcity in supplying demented, this whole thing has reminded me of a really great gallery. I put together a bout hilarious, knock off toilets, given yeah good stuff. You should know that common, look that up. It's pretty awesome, there's some really strange interpretation of beloved toys, including star wars, always that people who make counterfeit toys up with DR isn't trade Allow me as something or are they just fully Donna
stand the toy and what its allures, so they just make it in this weird interpretations, pretty hilarious, stuff, yep, it's agreement will pass that again. Ok and then I did mention the diamond studied. One always think these things are just ridiculous, but am but you like me to take any like the diamond studied brows was worth you now have a year ago. Your books at is always think it's gonna done, but they did make a fortieth anniversary. In addition, in nineteen I'm trying two thousand eight with twenty seven hundred little diamonds and rubies forte lights and black diamonds for the tires, and all that stuff. Eighteen here at White called body but M for the hundred and Fortys costs. Two hundred and forty thousand dollars to put together buncher these gaudy, it's a gaudy hot wheels near some cars cool, looks like
MAX is car. Are you get a picture of a new asylum? Can you I didn't find that car? What is added to my ear? It does look familiar to me sort of like a Delorean, but- and I think it is so either now man that new men MAX get there. Are they re making their backs? Well, there's a new reboot. I guess that's what they call these days to further. What's his face that played Bain lawyer, Tamar Thomas is vital to us than, but it looks it's the same director Tom Hardy. Yeah summary, but the same director from all the Med Maxillary, so at all really yea and it just looks ass. The whole it's busted be dislike one long, intense chase battle. So the lot like a mad max moving it, whatever the iversen vanishing point, I think so. What is it
it was like a man. I can't remember. The car with the car was basically this, it was our young carcase from like a thing Colorado to California. Yeah, remember that is a good one from the seventies, yet tooling, blacktop challenges at another. As I said earlier, the car I haven't seen around here, that's good when that one weirdly had the James Taylor and it when he was young and like Android then cool where they apologizing to France, and I want to do I did you hear about that now the whole surely have, though less. With thirty March the U S, sent like yeah the assistant to the USDA or something like fire. So do apologize. John Kerry Head James Taylor GO to France to perform. You ve got a french shut up for the french government
yeah, just talk about where they I know, isn't it send guns and roses are something at least on that same goods guns and roses for nineteen. Eighty, eight I will hear any guns and roses man who one more thing about collecting. If you who wanted to be the coolest collector of hot was on the planet. You would have to build a time machine back to nineteen eighty seven to my home town of Toledo higher, which is where the first ever heart wheels convention collectors convention was held I really wish. I would again do that because I was there at the time when he was eighty seven area. I can't believe we set things differ still dislike,
focus on anything. Well, if you want to know more about James Taylor, hot wheels are just about anything. There is in the universe you can type it into the search bar has the forks dot com and ass insisted search bar it's time for listening call this minimum wage argument, not argument. Listen to how homelessness works from twenty four years ago, and you guys commented that part of the problem was at low minimum wage. In comparison, the cost of renting to better apartment you'd have to work something like eighty seven per hours, eighty seven hours per week to afford it with the implication we need to raise minimum wage. After hearing this, solution occurred to me. I think a disagreements on raising minimum wage and resolve the simple me. Standing on the rays side. People believe this wage should be so at a level that would allow someone to raise a few children
and live a modest but reasonably comfortable level, or at least a safe level. They don't raise it. Sighed people believe minimum wage is just a starting point for working like for teenagers at their summer job after school. At this, I believe How should we never intended to and should not expect to be able to support a family that pays minimum wage? Here's my solution since we're- mockery here, let's just decide what it is supposed to accomplish and then set it at the appropriate level to do that. If we decide as a nation that we should be able to raise a family run into better learning a wage minimum wage, let's just figure out, but that would cost and set the wage, their figure in rent clothing, food utilities, transportation, etc. What sates twenty seven grams per year? set it at that rate. On the other hand, if we as a nation, decide that minimum wage is just starting point not meant to support a family is intended for people with no work, history or expense. It's an load, you know marketable skills and we need to set minimum wage at a real.
To be low level and let the market and the free market will ultimately determine the wage for entry level. Workers and workers historically been able to increase compensation by gaining skills and good work history, with the settled any you met about setting minimum wage at a living. Wage would be mistaken because we all just decided that people are not meant to live on minimum wage and certainly not meant to support a family as from

I think that is what it's based on culture, but, as far as I know, the cost of living calculations are really out of date yet and take a lot of stuff into account. It doesn't really apply any longer plus, regardless of what you think it should or should not be. The fact is adults with two kids are still gonna, be work in these jobs. Not just gonna, be teenagers right looking to advance, but it would be nice to put their issued a bed to say like this is what we are trying to achieve all this is not what we are trying to achieve right at the rails and everybody talking
It is just some teenager this first job make like forty bucks an hour that sitting right message either. I don't. I will leave it other thing.
