558 show on the mountain on Tuesday morning Mike Casey LE heart wick. Our big I'd eat it appears like it's it's big news and I imagine it'll probably get bigger sooner rather than later. Colin cap predict former NFL quarterback Chris have you been on the sidelines for awhile now. He was named citizen of the year by a GQ magazine he will appear on one of four covers for the December issue. Other cover subjects include Stephen cold there Kevin to rants Wonder Woman star Gail good dough. And although. College happening did agree to participate in this issue. He would not do he's continued to was beaten immediate silence basically. He has GQ assembled some other people to sort of speak on his behalf. As you might imagine this is strong and seemed you know criticism from one side in support from another side. I get I get where they're coming from. GQ it's impossible to overlook the idea that that he started discussion not whether year on one side of the discussion the other. Kind of irrelevant he started discussion of very important one. I think a lot of people also understand that his actions are seen as divisive divisive how are you wanna say it. Most protest movements usually are yeah somewhere should perform again. And then the end of it. Like GQ like their they would wanna sell magazines that's what they do so. I always feel like in situations like this sometimes people overlook the obvious and that is yeah it's a controversial choice yeah controversy sells magazines and you know draws eyeballs and at them that's part of a that we live in saw I get their choice. I also understand what some people are frustrated about it but. Yeah it's it's to be expected I think one thing that all of us can and should say no matter how you feel about the way in which kind cap earning chooses to protest. He is an athlete. Who had no obligation whatsoever to use his notion to enact any sort of social change and he chose to it he did that. And that's really bag because very few celebrities in any arena and deep. Well it's certainly state stands in stark contrast to. At least a handful of the stories we've seen particularly out of the NFL in the last couple years that surround each funeral. To domestic violence in each. A variety of other societal ills to say the least. And it seems in a lot of ways that did the people or as some do not everybody some people more upsets. About this about somebody you know a peaceful protest than there are some of these other things that I. I I don't make the joke let's start the list of things that matter more to the NFL than women. Flags at the dog's crate train there's. There's a lot of things they really don't matter in the NF. Mostly wives and girlfriend but it's a completely different subject no shortage of controversy. City police. Mike feces coming up an appeal on 95. The mountain are according to a new survey sponsored by credit cards dot com. They're take away from this survey is that rich people are cheap skates here's how they've come to that conclusion. Up 44% of people would household incomes over 80000 dollars. Say they won't spend more than 100 dollars on any gift they buy this holiday season. One in three people worth five million or more shop at Wal-Mart. At about half of those people shopping Costco. People who earn more than 100000 a year. Our 1000 dollars a year or more the most likely to be frequent coupon users I think this feeds into a narrative that we've ball. We I think we've all believe this to one extent or another for a long time. To be fair about it it's a wild generalizations. Played Ian ray Leonard notice until people with less money that are. Not at all cheaper that I ill people that we you know have a lot of money and probably our chief. Well maybe these people are shopping at Wal-Mart and Costco. So they can spend more money and vacation ends and I think maybe they're just smarter with their money you know lot of generally wealthy people stay wealthy you. Yeah as Berry you know saving on the things beacons on. Yeah they'll make bad bit of it goes really stupid decisions financially so over the rest of us I aides I thought it funny because like you said does heated through narrative that a lot of us have either believes or experience I know I experienced that or perceived that I experienced that as a as a bartender. Oh yes the people that you think you're getting it giant tent from. Like never Oki out yes thanks Saunders is out and yet the guy who's got like a dollar fifty left in his pocket yeah that the giving you fifty cents of that brightness and did chipper and a. Someone asked him for a donation for the neighborhood pools. So Smart it's like cheesy fun 1995 the mountain. Health experts are constantly trying to figure out how to help people eat better. In order to Buena slowdown of the rampant obesity epidemic recently instead of preaching that we should all eat more vegetables drink more water which I think we all know. That's going to be given right health expert named Emily field. Suggested that the next time you go outs. And playing on ordering hamburger. Instead of getting a hamburger and Fries you should actually get to hamburgers he was it makes sense but it's kind of kooky. You've yet to think about it a slightly different way her point is that. By ordering two hamburgers. It's actually far healthier than ordering a hamburger Fries because you skew your basically cutting out or not cutting out but eliminating a large portion of the car herbs that are the Fries. And having to burgers you actually get more protein. Which would be more sustained energy aid knocking Hungary's quickly and all that stuff. She's also pointing out ms. field is that she's not talking about like a third. Round. Hamburger with bacon cheese Chile not that's there's any sort of defeating the the perfect but it's an interesting concept in terms of rethinking what you do in in small steps rather than you know big huge steps in anything that involves troopers some pretty much on board with only field. Health expert it. Mike you know we make you feel confused on a daily basis. Then we apologize it's about to get a whole lot worse. Question almost impossible and 99 for.

Morning's quick Mike GC on 995. The mountain. Bill Gates has long been a philanthropist I think we all know through Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Donating millions upon millions of dollars to combat particularly diseases and on poverty. Bites the Microsoft co-founder has now decided to. To make a personal donation wanna lose this is not the foundation this is Bill Gates himself. In a pre and a pretty big what Bill Gates says that he will be donating 100 million dollars. That's a lot of money to fund research to bring in about an inch to alzheimer's disease. Other story from Reuters that donation will come into parts fifty million. To the dimension discovery fund. Which combines government and industry resources to seek treatment for alzheimer's. And fifty million to the two alzheimer's. Research startups. As a lot of us know unfortunately first candor of secondhand. There's no currently there's no treatment that slows alzheimer's only medications to ease some of the symptoms. Bill Gates says I hope that in the next ten years we have some powerful drugs it's possible that won't be achieved. But I am hopeful and go a hundred million dollars that's a lot of hope. He's great at making people. Which would be greats if he was trying to be funny Mike Casey mornings on 1995. The mountain. 830 here on the mountain what would you think just to blind yes. What would you think if I said see you a lifetime supply of alcohol or how much would you think that would cost. Oh gee maybe a lot of money in my U well yeah I mean yeah but it all kernel like a million million and. Half it. OK that's him that's a big number. On to celebrate singles day in China which apparently is a holiday there was not aware that the online retailer Alibaba. Had quite an amazing deal they offered. 33 lucky customers the first 33 who could swoop in and get the deal a lifetime supply of boost for about. 17100 dollars. Yes 17100 dollars these 33 lucky customers who who got in first will now get. Twelve bottles. Of eighty proof grain alcohol each month. For the rest of their lives. Twelve bottles every month for the rest of their lives here's what I find interesting the very next sentence is this. If they die within the first five years of the purchase of which seems fairly likely use that much free Boozer out they can leave this gift. To a family member. Percent T seven. Hundred bucks it's more money that I apart. That's what I'm saying think about all the crappy things in your life that if you added up and you spent 17100 dollars or more on. That's a lot of things none of home. I would say quite. Nearly as excellent as of lifetime supply of boos for 17100 dollars. Like this is such an incredible tee in 330 well if it's just any grain alcohol like my own. Can we have a little variety in there. Does mere bystanders. All and I don't wanna drink the same drink every single day yet that you get a free suitors are you do you barter you find like a neighbor who like you know all trade you some of that c'mon c'mon. OK I didn't think if you're a very intelligent you're very intelligent guy how they got hung up on the B tests you can thank you for steering me through that yes and now we need to find one of these 33 people. And figure out become their friend if they need radio friends in the United States it probably sounds like the idea.

By extracting its DNA just like you may remember. It's very similar to what they did in Jurassic Park. And I would just like to point out that doctor Ian Malcolm was kind of the only one who really made a lot of sense in that movie. And he said amongst other things he said this yeah yeah but your site is so preoccupied with whether they could they step. Which you have didn't stop to think whether a dish.
