#418 – Stop Blaming Guns

Listen now

Caleb Beaver (00:00):

Yeah, so

Sevan Matossian (00:01):

Bam or live.

Caleb Beaver (00:02):

So the event is in a, in a hockey arena. And so it just which

Sevan Matossian (00:06):

Event,

Caleb Beaver (00:07):

The, the Mac and syndicate. Okay. Sorry, Mac. And so it’s in a hockey arena. So it sits at like probably 50 degrees all the time. And so all of us last week, uh, we’re just sitting in the, like the dungeon, the, the underbelly of the hockey stadium and just freezing our asses off. And then, uh, the only people who had any sort of like long sleeve or hoodie, or like any thicker clothing was mayhem. And so all of the like medical staff and everybody walked over to the mayhem tent and bought up all their hoodies.

Sevan Matossian (00:35):

Oh, I love it. Oh, dope. What a good excuse to own some mayhem shit. I was thinking like, it’s weird that I don’t own any mayhem stuff.

Mattew Ouza (00:43):

I know. I’m surprised you didn’t have a nice little goodie box or something. Show up to the house.

Caleb Beaver (00:47):

Yeah. You get the athlete package.

Sevan Matossian (00:49):

<laugh> I, I, uh, Austin, I set my phone down and my glasses down and my keys and my wallet in the same place every day, like religiously, like, man, it’s crazy. And, and, and yet I still lose them every day. You’re right.

Mattew Ouza (01:02):

Oh, I do that too. I said ’em in the same spot every single time.

Sevan Matossian (01:05):

Yeah. Yep, yep. Yep. But then my, my, my, what happens is my, say that again.

Caleb Beaver (01:10):

Do you guys have like a dump dish? Like you just have like a dish, you just like throw everything

Sevan Matossian (01:14):

In, have a dump counter. I have a dump counter.

Caleb Beaver (01:16):

<laugh> that? That makes sense. I

Sevan Matossian (01:18):

Don’t, I don’t think that you could even imagine how many pairs of glasses and headphones I have it. It’s um, it’s I, I don’t know how my wife handles it and everything needs charging that I own everything. I, I I’m just a robot, uh, yesterday. Uh, um, oh Caleb, could you mute yourself when you’re not talking? Because there’s oh yeah. It’s, it’s weird. I have a, um, a dehumidifier in my room. I have my door open and my neighbor’s got some like, well pump going on, always. And I never do you guys ever hear anything come from my mic?

Mattew Ouza (01:52):

No, but I don’t really hear those other sounds either that you hear, cuz I don’t have headphones. I need get some headphones.

Sevan Matossian (01:58):

Oh, okay. I gotta,

Mattew Ouza (01:59):

I gotta up my

Caleb Beaver (01:59):

Game. Yeah, me too. Where

Sevan Matossian (02:01):

Are you too? Where are you? Caleb?

Caleb Beaver (02:03):

I’m in the like underbelly of the hockey arena. The civic auditorium. Oh

Sevan Matossian (02:07):

Shit. Okay. So it’s getting real for you. The semifinals are getting real for you again?

Caleb Beaver (02:11):

Yes. Yes they are. I had to come through and um, get everything tidy up for the medical and the recovery staff. Uh, everything’s kind of just getting laid out for the athletes to do like a little tour. Um, and yeah, getting everything ready.

Sevan Matossian (02:25):

I, uh, even though it is, it is even though it is hot, uh, already in California or, or nice, you know, like we’re getting seventies every day. Um, I do have socks on and I, and I still plug in my heater every morning. Cause I like to do the podcast with the door open, even if it’s noisy outside just for fresh air. I’m I’m a fresh air guy. Like I’d like to sleep with my windows, open all that shit yesterday. I was at the beach minding my own business. Not really minding my own business. I, I stare at, I stare at the bodies. I stare at the bodies.

Mattew Ouza (02:55):

<laugh>

Sevan Matossian (02:56):

Stare, but, but, but mostly minding my own business and I, uh, get a text message from this dude I’ve been fucking with lately, uh, named Andrew Hiller. And for those of you who don’t know the, the, the, the vernacular, the, the phrase fucking with that’s like when you, um, it’s like a courtship phase, like you could be like, you could say like, yeah, I’m fucking with that girl. That means like you just started dating or like I’m, I’m I fuck with that place. Like, like you just started visiting like a coffee shop, like a little bit. And that that’s kind of the phase that I’m in with Hillary. Like I’m fucking with them, like I’m test, like I’m, I’m, I’m kicking the tires, pushing the hood, you know, it’s like seeing if he is, uh, you know, I’m, I’m going, I’m going to the top of Everest. And at the top of Everest, there can be no zipper failure, not even because if, if, if the zipper fails on that jacket, when I’m at an Everest, I’m dead, it cannot fail at the top. So I’m fucked with the zipper the whole time. I, I, I zip up over some shit. I pull it down. I yank on it. I I’m doing everything I can because stress tested stress tested. Good morning, Athena. Good morning, uh, Mr. Uh, get with the programming.

Sevan Matossian (04:08):

Uh, so, so, so that, that’s the, that’s the phase I’m in, I’m, I’m fucking with Hiller. And, uh, we, we had him on the, uh, podcast. Um, we fuck with each other in the DMS. Uh, we exchanged phone numbers. Uh, I had him on the semifinal show and he he’s passing every test with flying colors. He is a he’s equal part, um, man of humility. But, but, but man, he’s he’s man, M a N motherfucker goes hard. So, uh, and, and he’ll also, it seems like if, if, if your zipper, for some reason did fail at the top fail at the top of Everest, he’ll let, he might let you climb into his jacket with him. So like he he’s kind of passed check I’m checking all the boxes. And yesterday he sends me a link to a video that he’s gonna put up, uh, this morning. And it, it, um, as my wife said, shit, it almost made her cry.

Mattew Ouza (05:02):

Mm, no, I know what you’re talking about.

Sevan Matossian (05:05):

And it, it, it, it rocked me too because the video that he, he, he digs into something that, um, was a pretty crazy moment in my life that I never went and revisited. I ne the New York times wrote an article about me. And, uh, it was in regards to, uh, Stacy to an interview I did with Stacy Tova. I let me rephrase that though. The New York times wrote a hit piece on Greg Glassman, and they were kind enough to put an article in there about me. And instead of referring to me as the greatest chief marketing officer who ever lived on the fucking planet, they were, they referred to me as a fucking deputy or general of Greg Glassman.

Sevan Matossian (05:43):

And in that article, they, they said something and I never went back and even revisited the video that they talked about, because I was always scared that like, maybe something in there was true, funny, huh? Not funny. Yesterday. Hiller sends me a video where he plays a section of that, um, uh, video where I interviewed Stacy Tova that the New York times misquoted mischaracterized took out of context. And if you go back and look at that interview, now I watched it for the first time since I, I, I ever, I’d never watched that interview before. Cause I lived it. And you see what I asked Stacy Tova I did fucking all women on the fucking planet of fucking huge favor. That interview alone should have fucking made me a fucking trillionaire.

Sevan Matossian (06:34):

If you’re a fucking female games athlete, and you haven’t watched the interview, I did with Stacy Tova, you’re not a fucking real female games athlete. I’ve been fucking ding Tia for that. She says in there, in that interview, she says that the, that the, that the birth control, she was using affected her ability to perform at the fucking highest level. And she realized that at the AF, after she retired, there’s no mention of that in the article. It’s crazy. I’m so nice to her. In the article, the article paints me some sort of scumbag. I can’t believe how nice I am to her. You, you, you watch the Hiller video today. You’re gonna get to see the clip. It’s nuts. It’s how you would want your me to talk to your mom or your sister or your daughter or your wife. I, I, um, it, I, I believe I didn’t ask him, but I think it’s pretty obvious that the video was inspired by the fact that I interviewed, uh, um, the great Annie Thor’s daughter yesterday, which, which I really enjoyed hanging out with her, with her. And Katherine’s name came up a few times. And the reason why I got so upset at Katherine as Katherine reposted that section in three posts where the New York times slams me and paints me as some sort of fuck hard,

Mattew Ouza (07:53):

Which gives it some validity within the community, right? It’s like a hit piece from a random outside publication. And then now you take one of our star star athletes, and then she goes, Hey, I’m guys, I’m putting my stamp of approval on this and blasting it out to you.

Sevan Matossian (08:06):

Yeah, exactly. Right.

Mattew Ouza (08:07):

That’s what the biggest deal is

Sevan Matossian (08:09):

With. Exactly. Exactly. Thank you. She takes and, and do you know what I’ve done for, um, catch and David’s daughter? So someone should ask her, someone should ask her,

Mattew Ouza (08:20):

You don’t need to ask her. You could see it. It’s the

Sevan Matossian (08:21):

Same thing. All those, all those fucking people, all those fucking people.

Mattew Ouza (08:25):

Yeah. It’s their platform, man.

Sevan Matossian (08:27):

My, my, my job was to, to glorify them. I glorified her

Mattew Ouza (08:30):

And you did it. Great. You built them an audience and you built them a fan

Sevan Matossian (08:33):

Base. I genuinely loved her. I loved Andy. I loved Josh, loved all those guys who had fucking bring, let me come into their inner circle and fucking film them. And she like these same idiots who are fucking talking shit about guns right now. Same exact it it’s it’s it’s unconsciousness. I shouldn’t call it ADC. I should call it what it is. I know what it is. It’s when you go unconscious, they go unconscious and they get swept by the wave. And she thought it was okay to attack me and man, uh, I don’t, I just saw a rough draft of what Hiller wrote, but he’s so nice to her. He’s so he’s so he’s so nice to her. She then reposts that.

Sevan Matossian (09:17):

And then when Greg sells the company, Eric Rosa sees the article in the New York times, speaks to Katherine and tells some other executives, is that guy gonna step down? Never, never goes back and looks at the Stacy Tova, uh, video himself never talks to me, nothing. And now that it’s so funny, um, you know, in, in one year, and I say this with all humility, I could singlehandedly fucking have the leadership capabilities to turn CrossFit around, make it profitable and fucking huge again. And, and, and I bet you, uh, uh, uh, 51% of the staff who used who, not, not the current staff, but the staff who are the old staff know that, you know how they know that cuz they watch what I did with the company from 2017 to 2018,

Mattew Ouza (10:01):

They’ve been around the last two years to see what’s not have been done

Sevan Matossian (10:05):

<laugh> and it’s nuts. It was, it was nuts that what that video did to me, that Hillary made, when I went back and watched it,

Mattew Ouza (10:10):

I can’t wait to see it. I haven’t seen it, but I’m, that’s really cool of them too. And NA’s doing is just showing the truth, right? <laugh> it’s like,

Sevan Matossian (10:18):

Yeah, it’s nuts. It’s nuts. It’s nuts. I, I he’s. I called him and I’m like, dude, that almost made my wife cry.

Mattew Ouza (10:25):

Email’s crazy as

Sevan Matossian (10:26):

I actually, and he goes, you’ve never gone back and watched it. And I said, no, I’ve never, no, sorry, go ahead, Susan.

Mattew Ouza (10:31):

I was saying, I just was reading the article up here. I had pulled it up and was just refreshing myself on the New York times article mm-hmm <affirmative> and the same stuff that was written about the Stacey Tova, uh, podcast. You could take that all outta context and talk about it from yesterday’s podcast with Andy too. It’s

Caleb Beaver (10:47):

The exact same interview. It’s the exact same interview, same

Sevan Matossian (10:49):

Interview.

Mattew Ouza (10:50):

It’s that’s so funny. And

Sevan Matossian (10:52):

Hillary asked me if I did that on purpose. I absolutely didn’t do that on purpose.

Mattew Ouza (10:55):

No. I mean, having a, having a child, her first child is a huge moment in her athletic career. I mean, she even said it’s a fork in the road. You guys talked about how she knows that she could have her child and never come back to anything athletic ever again. So if you’re talking to a female, um, athlete of her caliber and she’s having a child that is a huge, huge milestone and all the things that lead up to that with her partner and those decisions being made that so many other women could benefit from just like with the Stacy Tova one, when you were talking about competing and the things that women, um, you know, their bodies do and how they react during competition and what other people could learn from it. That’s why would you not talk about that?

Caleb Beaver (11:32):

It’s the same thing with the birth control. Like people don’t talk about birth control. Cause they feel like it’s taboo. Like, oh everybody, everybody just thinks, oh, I should just be on birth control. Like, no, we have this conversation at work all the time. You don’t don’t need to be on birth control. There are other ways to do it. You can like it’s it’s you don’t have to fuck with your body with all these different hormones just to exist. Right? Like people just think, oh, need to do it. It’s not the case. And having a conversation is helpful.

Sevan Matossian (11:58):

Thank you, Alyssa, Alyssa, Alyssa.

Sevan Matossian (12:05):

They gotta do. They got they. Uh, anyway, please watch the Andrew Hiller video. I mean, if you, if you’re interested in knowing more about this, I, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna beat a dead horse, but uh, it, it really, it really riled me up. It was like, um, imagine a pond. That’s just clear, beautiful water. And, and then someone dug out that stirred up the bottom and now it’s all, it’s all, it’s all stirred up in a good way though. I like it. I love it. I love the story. And I love where it’s going. I love the story and I love where it’s going. I am the kind of person that if you, you want as a neighbor, it doesn’t matter if you’re, if you’re the most woke, uh, motherfucker ever who ever lived. Like, if you think that like we should shut down colleges and only let black people go to ’em like you would still love me as a neighbor. I’m a, I’m a good neighbor. Can you say that about yourself? I would never, I would never let my tra if, if, if, if your trash cans weren’t out the night before and I put mine out at one in the morning, I go over and pull yours out.

Sevan Matossian (13:19):

If I see coyote in front of your house, I text you right away. If I have extra room in the dumpster, I call you and say, Hey, you wanna throw some, you got some shit you wanna throw away

Caleb Beaver (13:36):

Neighbors.

Sevan Matossian (13:38):

You have a good neighbor.

Caleb Beaver (13:39):

<laugh> no, I have to close it for him.

Sevan Matossian (13:42):

Oh, oh, oh, you’re a good neighbor. I’m thoughtful. And I’m situationally aware if you are situat, if you are situationally aware person, those of you, those, the hardest thing to do is hang out with people who are not situationally, situationally aware. It is nuts. It is nuts. It, it it’s. Um, I dunno if you guys remember that cartoon, Mr. McGoo.

Mattew Ouza (14:08):

Yes.

Sevan Matossian (14:08):

<laugh> but especially this is gonna be horrible, especially if you’re a female and you have a boyfriend who’s situationally aware like 90% of your problems and your relationship is the fact that he’s, he’s just struggling. He he’s, he’s struggling with the shit that he sees. You’re doing. That’s making your life fucking inefficient and making you a bitch. And, and it’s, it’s the same with dudes too. I mean, don’t get me wrong. Like a lot of times, like dudes are just not nice to other people sometimes. Well, just that’s the, that’s the, that’s the biggest thing. There’s this lack of dignity from people who aren’t situationally aware to, to all of humanity.

Mattew Ouza (14:42):

What do you mean by situationally? Aware? Like you go into a room and you’re noticing everybody who’s inside of it.

Sevan Matossian (14:48):

You’ve got your kids are at the fucking skateboard, ramps, skating the bowl and there’s garbage in the bowl and you don’t go down there and clean it out.

Mattew Ouza (14:57):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (14:58):

It’s like those, those no woman’s own. I, I would give up my, I would cut my balls off for my kids. I, I think a like, and I can’t, I can’t look where they’re going and, and help. I mean, uh, if they hit one of those cans or that piece of garbage or that McDonald’s bag in the bowl and hit and land on their face, they’re fucking, my, my prize possession is toast. It’s like the, I’ll tell you what situationally aware my coffee cup, my paper street, coffee cup. I’m I’m outta focus. Yeah. Get your <laugh>. My, my, my paper street, coffee cup. Um, I’ll pour Haley. If I see Haley’s cup next to her computer, and it’s at an angle where if the cup falls over, it’s gonna pour directly into the keyboard. You, I, I I’m gonna lose my fucking mind. There’s why would you even risk that?

Mattew Ouza (15:57):

Mm-hmm <affirmative> mm-hmm <affirmative>

Sevan Matossian (15:58):

Why would you even understand? Um, you drink, you drink something out of a can, and you put it in the fridge to save it for later. Now, now what you have there is if that can spills in the fridge, you have two hours of work. Why would you do, why are you risking that? Pour it into a glass jar and screw a lid onto it or something if you need it, it’s just it’s this, um, it it’s all the same people who ran, who thought COVID was dangerous. There was no risk assessment. There was no evaluation. It’s it’s it’s it’s fucking retard. Bill. Those are the, those people killed people. Bull quarantining, people killed people. I can’t wait. We’re having Jay crouch. And, uh, and, uh, um, Rob forte on, I have so many questions about Australia. <laugh>

Mattew Ouza (16:43):

They think they’re gonna talk about CrossFit. No, you

Sevan Matossian (16:45):

Can you imagine? Um, uh, the, it it’s it’s an quarantining is anti-science. You can see it all over the CDC website. You never quarantine, healthy people inside is where people get sick. That’s that’s that is where you get sick. You never, ever quarantine people. The gov, the governor of Pennsylvania and New York forced old people inside and killed them by the tens of thousands. But you’re worried about a school shooting. You, you are out of your mind. It’s all. Once again, risk assessment and calculations. 108,000 people died last year from fentanyl overdose. Do you know how many you’re gonna die this year? How much you wanna bet that that kid who went into that school shooting place was on high, on fentanyl or had done fentanyl. Or his parents had been high on fentanyl while he was in the womb. And you’re worried about guns. I mean, you, people are bat shit crazy.

Mattew Ouza (17:40):

Yeah. I think that was a deal with his mother, right? She was a drug

Sevan Matossian (17:42):

Addict. You see someone who smokes three packs of cigarettes a day who has a cough. And you give them a loins as, as the cure a mask. Oh, let, let me give you that. Let me give you a, a VIX lo to help that cough. You guys are your, your morons, your emotional, unconscious morons. And I mean that with, with peace and love you, you are so you are, so you are adding to the problem you are adding to the problem. Your fix is making it worse. You quarantined the old people.

Mattew Ouza (18:16):

And of course, you’re talking about the general public here, not our lovely

Sevan Matossian (18:18):

Audience. Who do you know how many people rifles killed last year? Not even 500, not even 500,

Mattew Ouza (18:26):

Like a hunting rifle.

Sevan Matossian (18:27):

Yeah, just the, like, like these assault rifles that are, that are idiot, politicians are talking about.

Mattew Ouza (18:32):

Mm

Sevan Matossian (18:34):

It’s crazy. We, we, we live with such dumb people and, and, and the connections that people are making are idiotic. Someone said, I’m glad our kids are protecting our second amendment rights. Like they’re making this connection that I’m not even a gun guy, by the way. Not at all, but people are making this connection that we should. Um, they think they’re being cute by saying, we protect our second amendment over our kids. Like they’re, they’re, they’re leveraging the death. They don’t realize what scumbags they are. They’re leveraging the death of their kids to make this connection. That’s not a fucking logical connection to say that, that, that, um, so, so the, the people on the, the right can have guns. Hey, who do you think does all the killing? Where do you think all the killing happens in? What cities, what do you think that those people are? That kid who did those killings, that tranny, that Latin tranny. Cause I know you guys love labels. Uh, what do you think? Uh, what do you think that guy was? You think his parents were Democrats or Republicans, you know who, what the fuck they are.

Sevan Matossian (19:34):

Okay. I’m getting outta control.

Caleb Beaver (19:35):

So I think, I think the grandma was like a drug addict. And then

Sevan Matossian (19:38):

Of course, of course, as yes,

Caleb Beaver (19:40):

He was living with her and then yes, yes. Him with the mom right.

Mattew Ouza (19:45):

Was gone or something like that. Like,

Sevan Matossian (19:47):

I don’t know. I don’t know any of it. And I can tell you they’re Democrats and they’re drug addicts. I, I, I ran some, I ran some it’s it’s a, go ahead. Sorry, Caleb, go ahead. Tell me, you can tell me the facts, but we already know that we, but, but I wanna hear, like,

Caleb Beaver (19:59):

The whole thing was just like entirely an unstable, like living situation because the son was living with the grandma and the grandma was a recovering addict who was also trying to evict his mom from the house that she owned. Perfect. So it was just like, it was, everything was all over the place. And then they passed that law. I think about, uh, like recently let, letting 18 year old, like letting 18 year old individuals to buy rifles, um, in Texas. And then he just went and bought one and attacked his grandma and then ran into in elementary school.

Sevan Matossian (20:31):

Oh, he, grandma got capped too. Yeah. Yeah. He shot her first. I, I haven’t, I haven’t been, uh, I haven’t been looking at, um, away too. I haven’t watching any of it cause I know it’s gonna be all fucking, just, just bullshit.

Mattew Ouza (20:45):

It’s and I think some of the things that you’re talking about to do with shortsightedness too, right? Like people just, they don’t see past the first either solution they’re thinking of, or the trash in the skate park. So they just see the trash, they go, well, it’s not my job. They aren’t able to see into the future. Like, Hey Mike,

Sevan Matossian (20:59):

Oh dude, I don’t even think they see it. I don’t even think they see it. They don’t even know. They don’t even know how to care about their kids. They don’t even know how to be situationally aware. Let me tell you the classic situational awareness that maybe a lot of you have seen the first time you see it as a kid, one of the things you see, you pull up to your house. You’re five years old, you get out of the car and run to the door and you don’t know where your mom and dad are and you look back and your mom’s, your mom’s in her fucking suit that she’s been in all, all day working, working her ass off. And, but she’s at the curb and her high heels picking up some trash in the curb, two cigarette buds in a fucking styrofoam cup.

Sevan Matossian (21:35):

And you’re like, oh, and it go, it clicks in your brain. Oh, mom’s picking up trash in front of the house. That’s interesting. Mm-hmm <affirmative> and may, and, and, and I never did that. Oh fuck. That. I’m running inside to get a sandwich. But now as an adult, I do it. I sure as hell do it. I do a lap around the house. I wanna make sure my, my, I wanna make sure my house looks nice for me, but for my neighbors too, I’m responsible for that little section. Just like I’m responsible to wave the police officers. Just like I’m responsible not to park my car in front of the mailbox or the postal lady to fat postal lady. Doesn’t have to get outta the car. She can just stick it in, in the mailbox. I’m responsible for pulling over. When I, um, hear sirens coming behind me so that the ambulance can get to help my, my fellow citizens. These are all deals we have with humanity. 12 black men were killed. Unarmed black men were killed by cops in that one year, 2020, whatever it was, that means nothing. That just means that they didn’t have guns or they didn’t find guns on the scene. Because of that, because of the response to that, that the woke community took thousands of extra black men were killed this year. That that’s what the response led to. They just weren’t killed by cops. They were killed by other black men.

Sevan Matossian (22:54):

You’re go thousands. Hundreds of thousands of people were killed during this pandemic. And, and, and millions more will die because of the side effects because of the emotional response and not the intellectual and logical response that was given to it. And that same thing, uh, it’s not gonna happen here cuz the people who believe there’s enough smart people who know that we have to have guns. Also, if, if we just went through, sorry, Kayla, one more thing. If we, if you don’t see what just happened in China, Australia and Canada in the UK in the last two years and you don’t, you’re not happy. Your neighbor has guns. You need to fucking check yourself. You’re you need to, you need, you need to really sit down, take a few deep breaths and let and, and have someone explain it to you. Okay, go ahead. Sorry, Caleb.

Caleb Beaver (23:43):

So also just imagine trying, so let’s just say we do band guns. Imagine,

Sevan Matossian (23:48):

Oh wait, wait, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry. Sorry. One more thing. Hold that thought. Caleb, hold that thought. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. And right, right. I don’t even care about the color. I was just saying that kind of as a, uh, as a joke. Um, I, I really, I really don’t uh, the color thing is, is idiocy. Skin color means nothing except how the sun affects you. But thank you for saying that. How many? I, I hear your point. Okay. Caller, hold on one second. Caleb, go,

Caleb Beaver (24:12):

Go Caleb. So yeah, just, just imagine trying to get rid of all the guns for one. And then on top of that, now that they’ve been created, like there’s no way to get rid of it just because the techno, just because you say, Hey, nobody can have guns anymore. Doesn’t mean that somebody’s gonna find a way to create it. Like you took away guns and you took away knives in England. And guess what? People are still getting fucking stabbed in England. What do you expect’s gonna happen? Like bad people are always gonna find a way to do bad things. Yeah. Doesn’t matter what you try to do. You can say, oh we can’t, we we’re gonna outlaw terrorism. Guess what? Terrorists are still gonna find ways

Sevan Matossian (24:44):

To Bo the buildings, are you kidding me? The argument’s gonna be that guns kill people faster, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But point is this right? We just, we just watched a hundred thousand people die of fentanyl. Last year, we’re gonna watch 200,000 die this year. They’re mostly fucking young people. We just watched the government kill 500 fucking thousand people because of their fucking COVID response. And, and okay, caller, go ahead.

Speaker 5 (25:10):

Hey guys, I just won’t call I

Speaker 5 (25:18):

All. Well, my first thing is, uh, so with the whole guns thing, um, you know, my dad and my mom are huge, massive CNN Watchers totally completely bought in. And, um, my dad was, would always draw comparison between Trump and Hitler and saying how Trump is trying to take over just like Hitler did. And I can’t get over the fact it’s like, Trump wants us to keep our guns. Like that’s the end of the discussion. As in that, as far as I’m concerned, like if you take away the guns that is so much worse than anything that Trump could’ve done to try to, to try to take over the country. Um, as

Sevan Matossian (25:57):

Long as imagine this real quick, I wanna add this on there too, James. Um, imagine this Trump had no control over the media guess who has complete control over guess who has complete control over the media? Biden has control over the media, the social media, all of it complete. Yeah. Yeah. You can’t Trump can’t be Hitler. Trump can’t be a king. Trump can’t be a communist. Those people have absolute control over the media. Just the way the left does. It’s nuts. But go on our parents, our parents are bat shit crazy. What they are is they’re unconscious. They refuse to wake up. They think the 49ers are the greatest team ever. And there’s no one who’s gonna tell them different.

Speaker 5 (26:35):

<laugh> yeah. I mean that’s, they’re unconscious is so true. Cause they’re, they’re fantastic people. Yeah, mine too. But they’re just totally, yeah. Close me up. And here’s second thing. I know you don’t when we talk about cross, but I’m swim coach by trade and I wanna it’s swimming. I’ve heard this a bunch. Swimming is not a good test of aerobic capacity for these cross games athletes. So extremely skill based. Okay. Could just, I could the marathoners, I was a college swimmer, not even a very good one, but I could destroy any marathon runner in a 500 meter swim. I, I guarantee it, but they, their VO two max, every metric of aerobic capacity that they have is a million times better than mine. Um, so James,

Sevan Matossian (27:19):

James, but how about this? How about this two thirds? Well, I, I believe the earth is round still. So sorry if that’s what I’m going by. But two thirds of the earth surface is covered with water. Like it seems, it seems like it’s an important thing to test. Just like running’s an important thing to test. And if we used your logic there, we could just fucking develop some sort of machine and put people on it for 15 minutes and be like, that’s the fittest person in the world.

Mattew Ouza (27:45):

Well, I like it as a skill based

Sevan Matossian (27:46):

Test. Yeah. Yeah. Like why, why not?

Caleb Beaver (27:48):

What about the gymnastics too? Like, you’re gonna say that muscle up are the most skill based things in gymnasts are on.

Sevan Matossian (27:54):

Yeah. James destroy people you talk

Caleb Beaver (27:56):

About. Come on. <laugh>

Speaker 5 (27:59):

All. Alright. Fair enough. I, I,

Sevan Matossian (28:01):

But I do like hearing this it’s it’s an important contribution. I just don’t think that, um, it means you take swimming out is where I went with it. Are you suggesting that, that we take swimming out? Cause I am the CEO.

Speaker 5 (28:12):

Um, I guess no. As long as we are categorizing it as, as a skill test and not an aerobic test.

Mattew Ouza (28:20):

Okay. Just like you would categorize a gymnastic as a skill test, but not a strength test.

Sevan Matossian (28:26):

I’m not dating her because she’s hot. I’m dating her because, and pick another reason

Mattew Ouza (28:32):

She’s situational.

Sevan Matossian (28:33):

I had to, yeah. I had to translate to how I understand the world. Thank you, James.

Speaker 5 (28:37):

Anyways. All right. Thanks guys. Have a good day. I’ll shoot

Sevan Matossian (28:40):

Later luck. Love. Bye. You’re a great calling. Give you, I give you a, B, B plus B plus.

Mattew Ouza (28:43):

He was good. He was like two things. Bam hammered him out.

Sevan Matossian (28:46):

He had a nice voice too. Kind of like

Mattew Ouza (28:49):

You gotta remember that.

Caleb Beaver (28:51):

It sounded like plumber.

Sevan Matossian (28:52):

Oh, he sounded like he could be in a Western or something to me.

Mattew Ouza (28:58):

You always have to remember the most, uh, powerful thing. Entity is always gonna be the media and the pen is always gonna be mightier than the sword or the gun,

Sevan Matossian (29:09):

The new cross, the new CEO cross. What, what, who cut, whose head off what

Mattew Ouza (29:15):

You could stop me. But if I got media on my side, my message carries on.

Sevan Matossian (29:20):

That’s true. Oh man. So someone put together, I wanna talk about the new CEO CrossFit, but someone put the numbers together for like all the people in the CrossFit space.

Mattew Ouza (29:28):

I saw that.

Sevan Matossian (29:29):

Yeah, we, we, we doing good and you know, what’s really misleading about the numbers is we do these shows like we did a show with Ricky Simone. Who’s an insane, uh, uh, UFC fighter and the show just tanks drive nuts and I’ll, and I’ll keep doing them. But when they figure out, when they, when they were in, in the rankings where they were, this thing that was ranking the, all the different media forms in, uh, CrossFit one, it was only using YouTube as the, um, platform they were looking at, but we dominated, but also they didn’t take into.
