Sevan Matossian (00:01):
Bam. We’re live. I locked my studio last night and then when I came up to it this morning, I was like, oh shit. All the doors are locked. And I got all crazy knocks on the door. Yeah. Bars on the windows. You’ve seen it.
Mattew Souza (00:11):
Yeah. It’s four knocks
Sevan Matossian (00:13):
<laugh>. So I, I’m like, oh fuck. Then in my, it’s dark here, so I run back in the house, I’m like, where’s my keys? Where’s all my shit?
Mattew Souza (00:21):
Uh, I got nervous cuz you’re, you’re so like, scheduled and disciplined. That is like one minute pass. And normally that wouldn’t have been an issue. Yeah. And I’m like, worst case scenarios going through my mind. <laugh>,
Sevan Matossian (00:32):
I’m like a little kid this morning. I’m so excited that I’m traveling and, and I’m so excited about that. We got in one more show before I take off. And that, that gives me all day. Today when I get to the house to look for a place to set up my podcast here, I’m bringing it all
Mattew Souza (00:48):
<laugh>, the whole
Sevan Matossian (00:48):
Portable studio. Yeah. Like the, I’m bringing in the live, the phone, the everything.
Mattew Souza (00:53):
Sevan Matossian (00:54):
I’m gonna show up to Greg’s house today with just like 15 bags of shit. He’s gonna be like, what are you doing?
Mattew Souza (00:58):
Like, and where do I set this up? Where’s the studio, please? Yeah. Yeah. Coming me to the studio.
Sevan Matossian (01:03):
How are you?
Mattew Souza (01:05):
Sevan Matossian (01:06):
Wait, uh, have you, have you taught a class already today?
Mattew Souza (01:09):
No, no, no. Not on Tuesdays.
Sevan Matossian (01:13):
Oh, that’s good.
Mattew Souza (01:13):
Sevan Matossian (01:15):
I, uh, I saw, uh, Dave, was it, uh, Dave Castro? Um, I forget what he told me. His job is now at CrossFit Inc. But you got a lot of, you know, him is the guy who used to run the CrossFit games. He’d been on the podcast a bunch. Uh, he was at the, um, where was he? Oh, he’s, he’s at Fort Bragg. Mm-hmm.
Mattew Souza (01:37):
<affirmative>. Yep. His Instagram
Sevan Matossian (01:39):
Here. And they’re doing 124. Um,
Mattew Souza (01:43):
Oh, wait a minute. Look at this.
Sevan Matossian (01:46):
Yeah. Right. Yeah. That’s what I saw this morning too. If it’s the same thing.
Mattew Souza (01:50):
This guy looking next to him.
Sevan Matossian (01:51):
Yeah. And you know what’s crazy? That dude, that dude is, uh, I’m trying to remember which CrossFit I’m trying, I’ve been trying to get that dude on the podcast. N not, not like, I mean, I’ve, I think I’ve, he probably doesn’t even know that, but like, I’ve been hitting up, I think I hit up his affiliate Instagram or something. Anyway, I think eventually I’m gonna get him on the podcast. I’m on the trail now. But when I saw that I wanted him on for the affiliate series and then I saw that, that’s pretty cool, right? Yeah. So it says, um, uh, this is Dave’s Instagram. Fun evening. Oh, I’m just getting my shit together. Hi everyone. Fun evening with Savannah, Georgia area, uh, affiliates. We invited them to meet up, to discuss a new army project we kick off tomorrow. That army project, by the way, is, um, I think they’re gonna, I did the math on it and I think they’re going to put 7,700 soldiers through a one day CrossFit introductory course that’s unique for these soldiers. And I just thought, wow, that’s gonna be fucking amazing for the affiliates in that area. Cuz those dudes are gonna need to go to affiliates eventually.
Mattew Souza (03:00):
Sevan Matossian (03:01):
Well, well, affiliates, affiliates everywhere around the world. So let’s say, let’s say half of those dudes stick with CrossFit and, and all of them introduce at least one person to CrossFit. So we’re back up to 7,700. And if there’s 7,700 affiliates in the United States, I don’t know if there are, just make it easy for me, then that means that that’s one person for every affiliate in the United States. And that’s $2,400 to every affiliate just through that program. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. Just some simple, like, just thinking, you know, math.
Mattew Souza (03:31):
Sevan Matossian (03:32):
That’s cool. Fucking I love, I love that.
Mattew Souza (03:34):
It’s amazing. It’s amazing. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. I love that. It’s like, it, it’s really where I think that, uh, hopefully CrossFit does more of that and sees kind of the benefit of going after some big wells like that. Like the army. Cuz it
Sevan Matossian (03:46):
Don’t do black History Month. We don’t need fucking rub your gen. The same genitalia on my face month. I don’t need, uh, fucking, um, uh, <laugh>. It’s celebrate the fucking Menorah month. Fuck you. Like I just do this. This is it. This is good <laugh>. I don’t, I don’t need any, I don’t need anything else from hq. Nothing so good. Don’t do, uh, stupid fucking shit on your games. Instagram anxious, Alex. Geez. Like, talk to us like, like you have a pedophile fucking running your Instagram account. Like, don’t do any of that stuff just normal.
Mattew Souza (04:18):
How do you think they test that? You think they ran that by like a test group and were like, Hey, we think we’re gonna do this. What, what do you guys, what’s the beta test? What do you guys
Sevan Matossian (04:25):
Feel? Okay. In all sincerity, here, here, here’s what it is. There’s people over there working at CrossFit that are part of that group that’s, uh, uh, where it’s like 70% of the males today haven’t had sex because they jerk off to, to, to porn. Right? And so, like we we’re in that, we’re in that kind of, in that phase in society, there’s a whole segment of young men who are just like, spend their time on Twitch video games and masturbating to porn. And so you have some people over there who are trying to get people to do CrossFit instead of staying true to CrossFit. Hmm. And, and then, so what you’re getting is a, a short term, you know what I mean? Does that make sense to you? Yeah. Like, I’m trying to sell you, uh, something. I’m trying to, they’re trying to sell you something that’s saying instead of staying true to the brand, and it’s just crazy shortsighted. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. The, it’s crazy shortsighted. And so that’s how you, we end up with these weird, like this, it’s, it’s worse than juvenile. It’s, it’s, um, it’s perversion. Not in the sexual sense, but it’s a, like this show is juvenile, but the, it’s a, it’s like a twisted, um, like, Hey dude, dude, there’s no, there’s no if ands or buts if ands or butts about it. If you do CrossFit, you’re a badass. That’s just the way it is. Don’t, it’s just the way it is. Mm-hmm.
Mattew Souza (05:38):
<affirmative>. Hey, you think, uh, Dave, I’m gonna answer this too <laugh> after I ask him, but you think Dave put that first picture with the guy at the c o up? Just as a little, you think that’s Oh,
Sevan Matossian (05:47):
Nod in the podcast? Yeah.
Mattew Souza (05:52):
I’m gonna say yes. So you don’t have to
Sevan Matossian (05:54):
<laugh>. Oh, okay. I don’t know. I don’t, I I mean, I, I I think Dave and I are very close. Yeah. But not in the work sense. Like, I mean in the sense like, if he called me and said, Hey, um, I’m stuck, my power’s out at my house and my generator’s low on gas, will you go put gas in my generator? Like,
Mattew Souza (06:13):
You’d be like, I’ll be there in five.
Sevan Matossian (06:14):
Yeah. Just like when I lost my job. Like, no shit. Dave did stuff like bring meat to my house from his freezer for, from his dead cow. You know, I just think we have that, uh, relationship around the work shit, though. He is, it’s a little different. Right. He tries to keep me at like arms distance, but, but maybe he does,
Mattew Souza (06:33):
But he’s got some love for you. And I think what you kind of get into that south side form a little bit. He does a little bit more than he would now. What he, what is he do for me? Fuck. No <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (06:42):
Mattew Souza (06:42):
Not a million years. But for you.
Sevan Matossian (06:44):
Well, I will say this. If he hated me, that picture would never go up.
Mattew Souza (06:47):
Yeah, that’s true.
Sevan Matossian (06:49):
Right? Yeah. Like, um, I, I can, I can think of one or two people who’ve done some really mean things to him over the years and, uh, the, that would never, um,
Mattew Souza (06:58):
He’d have purposely been like, fuck that. Don’t put that picture up. Yeah.
Sevan Matossian (07:01):
But it is weird. It, it’s so weird that he comes on the, like, I mean, you know, he didn’t come on the podcast forever. I couldn’t get him to come on and then all of a sudden he’s like, Hey, I’m coming, but I’ll only do it in your office.
Mattew Souza (07:13):
That’s a good friend. But I, I think that he, I doing that he was doing that to push you and to push himself a little bit.
Sevan Matossian (07:18):
Yeah. May May. Oh, okay. You, yeah, he definitely does like to make things uncomfortable.
Mattew Souza (07:23):
Sevan Matossian (07:24):
And I like, and he knows I like it. It’s the black licorice effect, you know? Or, oh,
Mattew Souza (07:28):
That’s why I like going to, every time I think about going to meta, like we joked about getting in suits and having you go back there and be like, hi, we wanna speak to a customer service representative. We seem to have lost my account. Like, when I think about it, like, think about us like getting there. Like I could start, like my palms start to get sweaty. Like I get a little nervous about it then that makes me want to go do it. I’m like, oh,
Sevan Matossian (07:47):
I need my account back.
Mattew Souza (07:48):
I need, do we need to tap into that?
Sevan Matossian (07:51):
Hey, great guest yesterday. Hey, he’s a trip. I don’t understand him. I don’t understand how him at all. Like psychologically, like I’m, it’s like almost like I’m talking to an alien, but I, and not, but, and I really like that.
Mattew Souza (08:08):
Yeah, we talked about it. I think some people in the chat were saying he was like going too quick and stuff. And I don’t think he was going too quick, but he touched a, a on a lot of really good subjects that you kind of wanted to like, pause him for a minute and be like, okay, stay right here. Unpack all this. Let’s stay here. Okay, now move forward in it. So there w i I do sympathize in the sense that there was a lot of meat on the bone when he was, he was moving kind of quickly through it. But I really enjoyed his, uh, takes on it. And, and by the way, just for the record, <laugh>, the chat is always so sure of like, what’s going on and what’s happening. I had to leave cuz I had to coach the youth program guys. I didn’t go get
Sevan Matossian (08:40):
Why? What did they say happened?
Mattew Souza (08:41):
Some of ’em were like, he’s getting a drink at the bar. Like Phillip said, he saw me struggling. So I guess <laugh>, like, I just like, was like, ah, like freaked out and left or something. And like I was cracking up reading the comments. Just, just, just coaching a class guys had to be that seven 30,
Sevan Matossian (08:55):
No one actually likes black licorice. Yeah. I I it’s my favorite. And, and also you’re right, that’s a hundred percent true. I can’t stand it, but like, if I had to choose between black and red, I would choose black every time. I don’t, I don’t understand black licorice either. <laugh>, but I, but I don’t fuck with the anus ever. <laugh>. I don’t like it. I don’t, I’m not interested in it. I’m not, I’m not a zero <laugh>. Zero. Zero. You
Mattew Souza (09:21):
Better be careful. You’re gonna say it so much that the chat’s gonna go the opposite way. They’re gonna
Sevan Matossian (09:25):
Be like, he he loves the anus. Savon Aaron gin was so good. He’s so logical. He talked about faith, but he did not use, uh, did not use faith to justify his arguments. Yeah. Yeah. Right. Isn’t that great? That’s the problem with like k Candace Owens and shit like that. And that whole prager you people, they, they, uh, they use, um, their faith like, uh, like the left user’s gender. It’s, it’s, it’s bad. It’s sloppy, it’s lazy. Thank you for that. What? Astute observation, Katie.
Mattew Souza (09:55):
Oh, that’s good.
Sevan Matossian (09:58):
Sounds like something I would say. Thank you. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> is black licorice, uh, an anal thing? No, I was just thinking like, I don’t like anal. It’s not like I, like, I hate anal, so I always have anals with my wife. Like, I don’t want like, like the, the terror I have of every time I wipe my butt that my finger’s gonna slide on the outside of the toilet paper and, and rub my anus. Is, is, is, uh, like I, I just, I don’t want anything. I don’t want anything to do with my butt. The only time I get, I mean, I wash my butt. Good, but that’s it. I feel like the, the, the, the soap is in my hand is like the, um, is the, like it’s a shield gives me the power. It’s the amulet that’s allows me to get close to my anus.
And then other than that, I have no interest in any to force people anus. But the point is, is that I can’t stand black licorice, but I lo but I would, I love eating it too. So it’s a, but the anus is just strictly negative. Ghost rider. <laugh>, uh, hey, se this, this came in my dms. Hey se first I’d like to thank you and your team for your podcast. I can rarely make the shows when they’re live, but I look forward to seeing the new YouTube podcast notifications when they’re posted. I’m a CrossFitter and I’ve worked in the pharmaceutical industry for 10 years, four of which were with big pharma where I’ve been part of many commercial drug launch teams before I left to work for a small pharma company. I always feel a sense of pride once they would get f d a stamp of approval because, uh, I’m conditioned to think we were, uh, helping treat people and cure people of their diseases. It wasn’t until I heard you mention how the X F D A commissioner, now part of the Moderna Pfizer did, uh, did it start opening my eyes on how intertwined the government is with big pharma. So this person heard on the show, holy shit. The, uh, X FDA a commissioner is now part of Moderna Pfizer, by the way. It’s not just one.
It’s like all go, go, go. Look up who’s on the board of Coca-Cola, Pfizer, the fda, you, you have to know this. And we talked it, it, it, it’s making its rounds on Instagram again, and you have to fucking know this. We talked about it two years ago. Fucking every day for a week. Dr. Fauci s wife is basically in charge of all the ethical decisions over at the NIH National Institute of Health. Like she is his partner in crime.
She signs off and makes the arguments of why it’s okay to force kids to take injections. So a bunch of you got, I I have to tell you this, A bunch of you got all twisted and, and all fucked up. I’m gonna tell you some things and you’re not gonna like it. The best way to raise your kid is to homeschool them vaginal birth breastfeed. And don’t circumcise your males. It, it’s, it’s, you can believe me or not. Believe me, I’m just telling you the truth. I’m not saying that people don’t end and don’t get a divorce. I’m not saying that There’s not like exceptions to this. Like, like the, like the mom has cancer and they shouldn’t breastfeed. Or, or, or you had, you had some kid fucked up, you kids at 60 years old and, and they were born prematurely and thank God you were in a hospital or your wife breast milk has some recessive gene that only, um, anazi Jews have. And you can’t, I’m not saying that,
But 99% of you who have any pushback on it, it’s not pushback with rationale. It’s pushback with arguing your limitations. Well, my wife couldn’t do this because of this. Her uterus was to, I can’t homeschool cause I can’t afford it. It’s like, none of it’s like, no, actually savon, that’s not true. Uh, the studies show that like, like it’s all just rationale. I, I don’t care. I make all sorts of fuckups too. I use a pH I love my phone that’s made with slave labor with Chinese people have to kill themselves for me to get it. I love it. I’m not, I’m not asking, um, I’m not attacking anyone. I’m not, I’m not attacking anyone. I’m, I’m, I’m just saying like, the best babies come out. You wanna give your kid the best chance possible. This is the way. I don’t need to hear any of your fucking excuses or, or, or anything. Love your kid and hang out with them and raise them. You had them.
Don’t put shoes on your kids. I mean, there’s a whole list of things that are the better way to, to raise your kids. I can’t, I didn’t make those. I’m not, I’m not making this up. I’m, I’m not saying it’s a hundred percent right. 99% of the fucking parents who send their kids to school who wanna argue with me. I guarantee you, 99.9 to infinity. You’ve never once gone and sat in on your kid’s school. I went to school for 13 years, no more than that. 23 years. And if you wanna include college, 10 years of undergrad, <laugh> and, and I never saw a parent sit in on a classroom. You know why? Cuz they don’t even fucking know or care what the curriculum is. Get it. So, so don’t tell me like, oh, but there are some good schools. Of course there are some good schools. I’m not arguing with that. But if you’ve never sat in your kids’ curriculum or your school, like I’m, I’m just telling you the best way. I think maybe there’s the best way to wipe your butt too, uh, uh, front to back
Mattew Souza (15:06):
Sevan Matossian (15:07):
But, but I’m not as sure about that as I am about this other shit. That’s it. I’m not, I’m not saying like I know you. Everyone’s trying their hardest. I sent my kid to school for two years too. The only reason why we homeschooled him was a fucking accident. I’m not, I’m not saying that like I’m smarter than you or you did something wrong. I’m just saying that the, the, it’s it’s best not to eat after six o’clock at night. It’s, it’s, it’s for most human beings that’s optimal. Just some things like that. Opportunity cost is a thing. Sure. Yeah. Um, uh, let’s kill everyone who’s committed. Uh, any, um, crime and, and shit would probably get better on the planet, but I don’t think it’s the right thing to do. Yes. Opportunity. Like, there’s all sorts of ridiculous, there’s all sorts of notions you can put at what I’m saying, but they’re not arguments for what the truth is. Here we go again. If homeschooling is not viable for a family, it doesn’t mean that it’s not superior. It doesn’t mean that it is not. I don’t understand what that I don’t, I can’t read.
Mattew Souza (16:08):
Sorry. I thought I was gonna say it doesn’t mean that it’s superior to
Sevan Matossian (16:13):
Yeah. Here, here’s what it comes down to. So many parents do not know how wanna deal with their kids. Yeah. I don’t wanna deal with my kids’ education. I have zero involvement in their fucking schooling. I cuz I don’t want to. So many parents are freaking out when their kids were at home. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Exactly. Uh, uh, that’s not opportunity. That’s murder. It’s it’s the same thing. Yeah. It’s the what’s just a different kind. I mean now you’re, now we’re just playing semantics. Yeah, yeah. Circumcised in the future if you want it. Yeah. You want to fucking generally mutilate yourself. Just let, let the kid do it later on in life. See the movie American, uh, uh, circumcision. It will fucking blow your mind.
Mattew Souza (16:48):
I’m then why I’m afraid it’s already been done. I can’t reverse it. So I wanna know the information
Sevan Matossian (16:54):
<laugh>, and I’m not suggesting anyone does reverse it, by the way. <laugh>. But, but, but there is actually a movement to reverse it too. There’s some shit, but I would not do that. But how would you
Mattew Souza (17:01):
Do that? Like, he glue it back on or
Sevan Matossian (17:02):
Something. Dude, there’s this machine. You can this thing you can stretch your skin. But here’s the thing. The most interesting thing is this. There is something called like stenosis or something. Like I, I, anyway, we should maybe we’ll do a movie night where we all watch that movie. Mm-hmm. Yeah. You don’t, would not wanna be I know that. Right, exactly. I know. I didn’t wanna go there either. But yeah, you can’t be as an adult, you would never be circumcised unless, I don’t know. Got something. There’d have to be some excruciating circumstance. Uh, it wasn’t until I heard you mention how the ex FDA commissioner are now part of Moderna, Pfizer. Did it start opening my eyes on how intertwined the government is with big pharma and really understand why pharma companies mandated the jab to stay employed. Then when I heard you all refer the drug companies want to treat you, but still make you you sick enough to rely on their drug.
It hit me smack in the face that the industry crumble if any of these companies had a cure. Now that I’ve been red pilled, I see very clearly how the industry is nothing more than a for-profit business and the ex expense of being, uh, is and the expense being sick patients. Yeah. Kind of unfortunate that I still work in the industry, but at least I have the knowledge to just accept the norm. Yeah. All of that’s like, that’s true with, uh, racism, all of that stuff. That’s the craziest part too. They got this whole cohort of people arguing the realities of racism that aren’t, that are not reality. Yeah. And, uh, and uh, well first, because most people don’t even know what racism is. It’s the same thing with homeschooling. Like I had no idea what it is, but, but they don’t know what it is, but they go into it because it, it creates money. Same with homelessness. There is no homelessness. It’s a misnomer, but it’s a billion dollar industry in the state of Washington alone. Lemme repeat that again. The homeless industry in the state of Washington is a billion dollar industry Now, if you make $250,000 a year being the head of some food bank, do you want homelessness to go away?
Mattew Souza (18:58):
<laugh>? Not unless I get a new job. I wonder if they’re, I wonder if they’re, uh, like there’s not many problems. There’s just mostly industries, right?
Sevan Matossian (19:07):
Mattew Souza (19:08):
Like if we find a pro a society in a problem in society that we can’t seem to figure out how to fix, there usually seems to be an industry attached to that,
Sevan Matossian (19:16):
Right? Yeah. Well, and that’s the cool thing about CrossFit that like, um, you get to just keep doing it over. It’s a, it’s, there’s a, a maintenance, a cool maintenance piece to it. You don’t just get fit and then quit. Okay, got it.
Mattew Souza (19:28):
Right. There is no top of the mountain.
Sevan Matossian (19:32):
Hey, uh, Daniel Garrity. Now I know why, like, why someone likes Aaron Ginney just covered 14, uh, topics in the last
Mattew Souza (19:38):
30 seconds. <laugh>. Hey, there is one hack to what you were saying with the homeschool and everything else. Yeah. And I just think that if you were to build like a pyramid of raising a kid, that might be kind of cool to think about. But, uh, at the, at the base of it.
Sevan Matossian (19:53):
Well, well, by that you mean like there’s, there’s these kids who I know who are homeschooled, but one day a week the parents send them to a three hour class that takes place on the beach and it’s studying, um, the ocean.
Mattew Souza (20:04):
Well, that sounds awesome.
Sevan Matossian (20:05):
That sounds way awesome. Yeah. But
Mattew Souza (20:08):
<laugh>, but what I was gonna say is that,
Sevan Matossian (20:09):
That what you mean, instead of just homeschooled, there’s like a
Mattew Souza (20:12):
No, I just meant that regardless of your situation of circumstance, because just like in a lot of these topics we talk about context really matters as to like why you’re doing what you’re doing. Right? Like some, like you’ve heard the parents or the people make the argument, and I made it last time, that if they can’t afford it, that you’re partly going to school for a daycare because you need it and you’re partly going to school for education. But the number one, um, underlying factor that will be beneficial across the whole thing is just parent involvement. So does it like
Sevan Matossian (20:39):
Yeah. Good. Yeah,
Mattew Souza (20:40):
Yeah. You know, because if you’re, so, if you take your,
Sevan Matossian (20:42):
If the parents, and that would start with, uh, suza, I’m giving the parents the money so the parents could pick the school that they wanna send their kids to. Hey, that would get us to the 50 yard line because then all the schools would be competing for the money. We’d have
Mattew Souza (20:54):
Competition. Yeah, a hundred percent. Yeah,
Sevan Matossian (20:55):
You could, but, but I know, I know that’s not exactly what you meant by parent, uh, participation. But giving them money would a, would empower the parents to participate.
Mattew Souza (21:03):
Well, that would be at a, like a tax level and being able to have more option in choice of school. Which technically, if you think about it, if you don’t really have an option for this kids in your school, you don’t really have a freedom to choose. Right. Because for, for me, freedom is equals the option of choices. So if you’re have to stick to one due to your tax and due to where you live and everything else, then there’s not really a freedom of choice. You’re just kind of stuck with what you got. But the point being is that you could have a kid that’s being homeschooled, that’s still being all screwed up. I mean, you took Yes, yes. Let’s take your kids, for example. Yes. The process in which you’re vetting all the adults that are in front of ’em, who you’re choosing to get in front of ’em, how long you’re choosing to use each one of these people, what you choose to, the timing that you choose to sit down to do their homework.
The other practices and disciplines like them having to sit still and breathe. I mean, I’ve been around a lot of young kids and I have not seen, this is gonna go back a couple years. Four year olds sit there in silence for two to three minutes. It’s crazy. No homeschool or regular school or anything is gonna do that shit. That’s all parents. That’s all you and Haley, right? Yeah. So regardless of people, rather than us getting into this argument about which is ripe, and I think majority of the people kind of know that you’re, you’re right, more involvement and heavier involvement in your kid’s life is gonna set them up for further success, but maybe their situations don’t dictate it. So rather than looking at it as an A or B, just have as much possible involvement in your kid’s life as you have with the situation that you’re being dealt. And chances are they’re gonna come out. Okay.
Sevan Matossian (22:28):
Do, do, do, did you have, uh, do you remember having friends spend the night like in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade?
Mattew Souza (22:34):
We did, but it was like, it was like birthdays and stuff. Like, it had to be more special occasion. Oh. Like I knew a lot of my friends that were just like, had kids that could spend the night on like a school night. Me, I thought that was crazy.
Sevan Matossian (22:44):
Like, oh no. The, yeah, the school night shit was
Mattew Souza (22:46):
Crazy. But it wasn’t until we were, I’d probably say like fifth or sixth grade. And then it would be like, you know, a birthday party. We’d have eight to 10 kids over. We’d go to like the putting golf course and ride go-karts and then go back and I’ll spend the night like in a movie and spend the night there.
Sevan Matossian (23:03):
I, I had this, uh, friend Jeff Holman who would spend the night all the time, like on Fridays and Saturdays, sixth, seventh, eighth grade. And it was always the same thing. We stayed up real late. My mom would be asleep and then we would lay out shit loads of blankets on the floor, and then we, we would sleep. Or I think normally I would lay out blankets for him and then I would on the floor and be like, build like a cushion. And then I would sleep in my bed and we would talk all night. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, we would just lay there and talk and just, just, I just remember how fun it was. And, um, then so the, I I put my kids, my, my, well my wife does it 90% of the time, but we put our kids to sleep every single night. And it’s one of those things that is, is frowned upon in the kid raising community.
Um, you, your kid, you’re supposed to just put your kids to sleep and let them fall asleep themselves. But in the last week, but we don’t do that. We lay down with our kids and, and go to sleep with them and then, and then, and then get up. And once they fall asleep, we get up and, and leave and last week alone. And the conversations then are so fucking amazing. Last, so these are the questions I’ve heard from my boys. What’s the meaning of life? Where were you before you were born? What happens when you die? Are we gonna be allowed to go to, uh, our grandmother’s funeral? Um, uh, what is the definition of se? Like what is sex? What is that, what is that word mean? It’s just a constant barrage of
Mattew Souza (24:29):
Big life questions,
Sevan Matossian (24:30):
Dude. Yeah, it’s crazy. It’s crazy. Just from sleep. Just from Yeah. It’s, it’s, it’s, uh, yeah. Pillow talk with chevon. Yeah. <laugh>. It’s so great.
Mattew Souza (24:39):
Thank you. Hey. That’s what happens when you give them real life interaction and expose them to a bunch of things in life rather than putting a screen in front of them.
Sevan Matossian (24:46):
Yeah. Right. And, and, and uh, and and, and, and kind of just like, like for me may maybe it is better that I, if I would’ve like, um, taught my kids a little more independence, so put themselves to sleep, all that. Like a lot of, but I don’t, um, no they didn’t, they the vile never came up <laugh>. No, thank you though.
Mattew Souza (25:05):
Yeah. But they’re gonna have their whole life to sleep independent. You’re only gonna have these moments in time now.
Sevan Matossian (25:10):
Yeah. It was, um, I don’t know how they don’t drop from exhaustion every day either. I,
Mattew Souza (25:17):
Dude, the kids are crazy with their energy. If you could find a way to bottle that and sell it, we’d be billionaires, <laugh>, zero side effects, but you’re gonna have intense energy for the whole day.
Sevan Matossian (25:28):
I told him, uh, what happens after you die? I gave him, um, I gave him the, uh, Darwinian answer, then I gave him the God answer as options. Then I gave them the God answer mixed with the Darwinian answer, that God like created the Darwinian answer. And then I gave them the solution. They sit in circle every day where they have to sit quiet. And I told them in that process that their mom’s teaching ’em is the answer to everything. If they can master that sitting thing. But I told ’em it’s a crazy lifelong practice, but they could get the answer themselves from the source if they’re willing, willing to put in the time with, uh, stillness and silence. <laugh>. So those are the three. My wife’s like, damn, you did good. I was like, thank you
Mattew Souza (26:11):
<laugh>. It’s funny watching him do that too. Like, uh, Avi
Sevan Matossian (26:16):
More you’ve seen them do that.
Mattew Souza (26:18):
Yeah. Yeah. A couple times. And it’s funny cuz uh, Avi’s like the oldest one is like, he sits there and he looks like how you expect somebody sit there and meditate. But I was watching Ari do it last time I was over. Yeah. At that poor kid. Was he, he was like a, it was like a capsule and there was something in there just trying to like, bounce out of him. Like he’s just like
Sevan Matossian (26:38):
Mattew Souza (26:40):
Like you could tell he was just like fighting it the whole time. You know? Like his body’s just like, we need to run. But his mind’s like trying to stay centered. It’s pretty cool.
Sevan Matossian (26:47):
I saw him lick it. His brother put his hand in his face the other day and he licked his brother’s hand. Ari licked Joseph’s hand and I saw it in the mirror. I go, dude, you just licked your brother’s hand. He goes, I know it’s disgusting, <laugh>. I’m like, how was that a response? Uh, you are dust and unto dust you shall return. Is that what? Where’s that from?
Mattew Souza (27:07):
It’s like a Bob Dylan line or
Sevan Matossian (27:08):
Something. Oh, that’s horrible. Uh, okay. Uh, 365. Uh, unbelievable. When girls do math, like it just keeps, maybe homeschooling is not right. Maybe. I don’t know shit. Cause I see stuff like this and I’m just like, wow. I do not understand. Like, I think I have girls figured out, but I don’t, I don’t have anything figured out. I’m just, just a pompous little man. I, I just can’t believe girls do math like this. I’m so, it so breaks my paradigm of the way women think. I’m not supposed to do math. Here we go
Caroline Baniewicz (27:47):
To be the person who tells you this, but no man will ever be inside of you As long as he was inside of his mother. He was there for nine months. Nine months is 6,570 hours. That’s 394,200 minutes. Divide that by 10 being generous for the men. He has to be inside of you 39,420 times. Think about that next time he sucks on your titties. I
Sevan Matossian (28:10):
Hate to be the person. I don’t know why she had to throw in that last part that really just fucks me up. But she’s basically saying that if you, if you, if you, if you push the penis inside of a woman and you stay in there for 10 minutes every single day, you would need to do that 30 for 39,000, uh, 420 days in order to be inside of a woman. As long as you were inside of your mom. Yeah. Yeah. See? Oh yeah. Thank you Daniel. Good. That, that’s what I was trying to explain. That’s why she divided by 10. Cuz she’s saying that like the A 10 is generous. Yeah. Good. Catchy Ash. She’s saying like, if you, if you can keep your penis inside of one for 10 minutes, that, that she’s being generous. Maybe that’s a subtle dig
Mattew Souza (28:51):
Sevan Matossian (28:53):
That’s a lot of soaking
Mattew Souza (28:55):
Sevan Matossian (28:57):
Oh, Jay, you are a good dude. Jay Ruffner. I will speak for every guy in here. We’ll give it a shot. You’re a good dude. You’re a good dude.
Mattew Souza (29:08):
Oh my goodness.
Sevan Matossian (29:09):
Oh my goodness. Okay. 10, uh, yeah, 10 minutes per encounter yet I had to watch it twice to get that. Yeah. Okay. Well that’s, I I, it’s just incredible that, I mean, that is just, uh, breaks my paradigm. Women just contextualizing and making things relative. I don’t think most humans do that, but I just never give women credit for that. And that’s the third. I’m over for three on my women in math. I, I, I may have to just shift my whole
Mattew Souza (29:34):
Sevan Matossian (29:35):
I might have a paradigm shift.
Mattew Souza (29:37):
I think I’m with Heidi on this one.
Sevan Matossian (29:39):
What did she say? Yeah. Thank you. That’s, yeah. That’s why the titty thing. Like what, what really? Can I just put all my blinders on that one? Yeah. Yeah. Weird comparison. It’s all, we’re all one Heidi at the end of the day, it’s a sad, it’s a sad world. Are these just populating in your explore page?
