it's going to be given the fact that there are how many billions of facebook users, you know, are you really going to be able to compete with these behemoth spencer? well, you know, i'm just amazed. the produce so much profit on a day like this where the name truth social maybe he could have called it a fake news it would have been even more profitable. oh, well, there's still time and he'll definitely carve a niche. sorry larry. yeah carbon, it's market out of it. that's for sure. yeah. well the one problem that have and not just you know with this site is that we tend to all be speaking into our own silos. and so we just hear our own messages whatever we personally like and so it just is kind of we're all stuck in these echo chambers whatever, you know, whatever whatever you happen to believe in. all right, let's move on now the faa is proposing longer rest times between shifts for flight attendance the new rule would guarantee. least 10 hours of rest for all flight attendants instead of nine. it would not change the 14-hour
4:42 pm
limit on a flight attendance workday. the airlines are against the new rule saying that it would be too expensive to implement costing airlines more than 7 80 million dollars over the course of 10 years the faa says there will be 60 days for public comment and the airlines will have 30 days after the rule is finalized to comply, you know, i don't know about the business sense of things, but i've always thought to myself dan that being a flight attendant is grueling work your body never really knowing what time zone it's in. i can only imagine it's true and it seems i know a number of flight attended to one good friend of mine. he's been a flight attended for a few years and loves it. but you know you it looks glamorous in on tv in the movies. it's hard work and you fly to these distant places and you turn right around it's not like you get to see many of the places often that said, you know working 14 hours and then having to flip around on nine hours rest. that's asking a lot. they do get some time off. do they get many days between shifts sometimes but still pretty tough.
4:43 pm
yeah, i'll just say go ahead spencer. i was just say the shifts came. you're right. they can be very demanding in terms of time and energy and i'd always dealing with the most pleasant passengers, especially these days well having been married to a flight attend. i could tell you it's really really hard on the body and as she constantly reminds me you could never do what i do. all you do is put on makeup and talk. oh, which is true though, larry. yes, it sounds like you you and my wife have an anonymous american collector is the proud new owner of a try sarah top. skeleton. not just any dinosaur. skeleton big john as he's called is the largest triceratops ever discovered named after the owner of the land where the dinosaurs bones were found in south dakota where it roamed 66 million years ago sold at a paris auction yesterday 7.7 million dollars a big conversation piece to have in your home. it is enormous. i would like just put it on the lawn just to see the reaction from the amazon guy.
4:44 pm
yeah, maybe have a fake roar come right, you know motion detector your lot. is that big? yeah, if not there for halloween. just yeah right decorate. i think it's pretty cool. i hope ultimately it gets displayed. you know, the the person who bought it will do what they want with it. i hope ultimately people will get to see it and that it's gifted to some museum at the end of the day at some point, but remember i think was last year in new york a t-rex. tyrannosaurus rex was auctioned off for something like 32 million dollars. it was the most expensive dinosaur ever auctioned. this one's a steel. yeah, it's relatively speaking seven. yeah. yes wrapping things nott b jersey dedicated a permanent new 80-foot sculpture today. it is called the water's soul you can't help but notice though that it depicts a young woman with a finger on her lips shushing or asking for silence in the direction of the new york
4:45 pm
city skyline now, never mind that the city has a reputation for noise. he says he thinks new york will understand that he is not asking them to be quiet. he is asking the world to be quiet. i suppose with all art it is open to interpretation spencer, but you spent a number of years in the city. it is loud. well, it can be but you know i got used to it and never thought much about it after just a short time there, but you're right. it's a matter of interpretation. the art is people will be talking about this for a long time. what's the real meaning of it? you know? i it's kind of neat, you know all good art should be provocative and it should be thought-provoking and that's what this is dion. do you know if they make a desk sized version of that so i would maybe buy several of them points. oh, at least it's equal opportunity that you're gearing this insult toward me and spencer. thank you. oh, he he's an equal opportunity. it's everybody. yeah. i may have to buy 30 40 of them. actually. i don't know how you guys work
