Insights Into Teens: Episode 86 “Q&A Series: Philosophy, Politics and Stuff”

This week is another in depth Question and Answers session on topics like philosophy, politics and more. We ask a number of heavy hitting philosophical questions this week such as how would Madison explain love, is there such thing as free will and can we understand happiness without sadness.

Following up to our “Running for President” podcast from last week we ask Madison a number of politically motivated questions such as why does politics matter to you, does she think too much money is spent on political campaigns and what does she think are the qualities of a good political leader.

We wrap up with a shortened set of miscellaneous questions such as what do you wish you were more motivated to do, what’s something kids understand but adults don’t and if you could give every person a gift in the world what would it be?

It’s an insightful look at how teens think about today’s issue and we get some very enlightening answers.

0:02:19.120,0:02:23.840
now we’re ready to get into it sure

0:02:26.239,0:02:30.319
so the first category that we’re gonna

0:02:28.560,0:02:33.519
start out with

0:02:30.319,0:02:35.440
is philosophy oh yay

0:02:33.519,0:02:37.360
at least that’s sort of what i kind of

0:02:35.440,0:02:38.400
threw some of these questions in as

0:02:37.360,0:02:39.760
because

0:02:38.400,0:02:41.680
they kind of didn’t fit into other

0:02:39.760,0:02:44.800
categories either so

0:02:41.680,0:02:46.160
this is kind of the uh the the

0:02:44.800,0:02:47.760
bottom of the bucket here are the

0:02:46.160,0:02:50.800
questions that we had through all the

0:02:47.760,0:02:53.680
other q a series

0:02:50.800,0:02:55.760
but they didn’t fit elsewhere and i

0:02:53.680,0:02:57.120
threw the politics section in just as a

0:02:55.760,0:02:59.040
follow-up to our

0:02:57.120,0:03:00.480
you running for president last week so i

0:02:59.040,0:03:02.879
thought that would be kind of fun

0:03:00.480,0:03:04.400
alrighty so we have 20 questions in this

0:03:02.879,0:03:07.519
first segment ready to go

0:03:04.400,0:03:11.040
sure all right here we go question

0:03:07.519,0:03:12.000
one when do you feel a teen becomes an

0:03:11.040,0:03:14.480
adult

0:03:12.000,0:03:16.000
okay so a lot of people will probably

0:03:14.480,0:03:19.519
say like

0:03:16.000,0:03:24.000
when they get from the age category like

0:03:19.519,0:03:27.360
18 19 20 like 20 or 21 is

0:03:24.000,0:03:29.920
what someone becomes an adult

0:03:27.360,0:03:32.080
and in mo and i mean that is the

0:03:29.920,0:03:35.920
definition of an adult someone who

0:03:32.080,0:03:39.200
no longer is from the age

0:03:35.920,0:03:42.560
of um 0

0:03:39.200,0:03:44.799
years old to 19

0:03:42.560,0:03:45.599
that’s basically the rest of it is

0:03:44.799,0:03:47.920
pretty much

0:03:45.599,0:03:49.519
an adult until like you get slightly

0:03:47.920,0:03:53.440
older but then

0:03:49.519,0:03:53.440
um but i don’t think you’re an old adult

0:03:53.760,0:03:58.840
but that but i don’t really feel as

0:03:55.360,0:04:02.480
though it’s an age thing it’s more than

0:03:58.840,0:04:04.000
accepting reality and responsibility

0:04:02.480,0:04:06.239
kind of thing to me

0:04:04.000,0:04:07.360
like there are plenty of 21 year olds

0:04:06.239,0:04:09.920
who

0:04:07.360,0:04:10.720
are definitely not the most responsible

0:04:09.920,0:04:14.799
people

0:04:10.720,0:04:17.519
um on the planet because like

0:04:14.799,0:04:18.320
21 you can still do bad stuff and you

0:04:17.519,0:04:22.079
can still

0:04:18.320,0:04:25.040
act immature and i feel as though when

0:04:22.079,0:04:25.440
a teen becomes an adult it would be more

0:04:25.040,0:04:28.720
of

0:04:25.440,0:04:32.080
like them accepting responsibility

0:04:28.720,0:04:35.199
them um getting a job or getting

0:04:32.080,0:04:35.919
something that pays them well and it

0:04:35.199,0:04:38.080
would be them

0:04:35.919,0:04:39.120
accepting responsibility taking care of

0:04:38.080,0:04:41.919
themselves

0:04:39.120,0:04:42.400
and finding a place in the world so it’s

0:04:41.919,0:04:47.199
less an

0:04:42.400,0:04:50.320
age than more a status or maturity level

0:04:47.199,0:04:53.280
all right i’ll buy that question

0:04:50.320,0:04:54.840
two what three things are you most

0:04:53.280,0:04:57.919
grateful for

0:04:54.840,0:04:59.759
okay uh the first thing is you and mommy

0:04:57.919,0:05:01.440
you guys are great parents and i don’t

0:04:59.759,0:05:03.280
think i could ask for um

0:05:01.440,0:05:04.880
anything better i don’t think thank you

0:05:03.280,0:05:06.479
i don’t think there is anything better

0:05:04.880,0:05:08.080
at this point so i’m definitely grateful

0:05:06.479,0:05:09.680
for both of you

0:05:08.080,0:05:11.440
i’m also grateful for the fact that i

0:05:09.680,0:05:13.280
have a roof over my head i know a lot of

0:05:11.440,0:05:15.120
people don’t have that luxury

0:05:13.280,0:05:16.800
and even if they did have a roof over

0:05:15.120,0:05:18.479
their heads um

0:05:16.800,0:05:19.840
they might not be in the best of

0:05:18.479,0:05:22.479
conditions

0:05:19.840,0:05:24.240
okay um so i’m grateful for that and i’m

0:05:22.479,0:05:25.120
also grateful for the fact that i’m

0:05:24.240,0:05:27.759
healthy now

0:05:25.120,0:05:28.800
especially with everything going on i am

0:05:27.759,0:05:31.600
grateful that

0:05:28.800,0:05:32.080
i’m healthy most of us are healthy and

0:05:31.600,0:05:35.199
that

0:05:32.080,0:05:39.440
we have a decent lifestyle going on

0:05:35.199,0:05:41.360
okay very mature things to be grateful

0:05:39.440,0:05:43.360
for i think kids your age probably would

0:05:41.360,0:05:45.680
be grateful for

0:05:43.360,0:05:47.280
slightly more materialistic things under

0:05:45.680,0:05:50.400
normal conditions

0:05:47.280,0:05:50.400
so kudos to you

0:05:50.479,0:05:53.680
question three what do you feel are the

0:05:53.360,0:05:56.880
most

0:05:53.680,0:05:59.759
important things to living a great life

0:05:56.880,0:06:01.199
okay so there’s a lot of things one

0:05:59.759,0:06:03.919
would obviously be

0:06:01.199,0:06:05.759
having some good some type of good

0:06:03.919,0:06:08.880
financial

0:06:05.759,0:06:11.680
status because you really can’t

0:06:08.880,0:06:12.960
survive without having some type of

0:06:11.680,0:06:15.360
money because you need to get

0:06:12.960,0:06:16.080
food and water and you need a roof over

0:06:15.360,0:06:18.240
your heads

0:06:16.080,0:06:19.919
which having a roof over your head is

0:06:18.240,0:06:20.720
also pretty important to living a good

0:06:19.919,0:06:23.240
life

0:06:20.720,0:06:25.039
but another thing is strong and healthy

0:06:23.240,0:06:26.639
relationships

0:06:25.039,0:06:28.160
we’ve talked about relationships in the

0:06:26.639,0:06:30.720
past and

0:06:28.160,0:06:32.160
um one of the main benefits of having

0:06:30.720,0:06:35.840
good relationships

0:06:32.160,0:06:38.880
is having them to support you when you

0:06:35.840,0:06:40.479
need them most and i feel as though

0:06:38.880,0:06:42.720
having good relationships

0:06:40.479,0:06:44.160
can help and benefit in many different

0:06:42.720,0:06:45.840
aspects of your life

0:06:44.160,0:06:47.520
so definitely having good relationships

0:06:45.840,0:06:49.120
with people and having strong

0:06:47.520,0:06:49.919
relationships with the people close to

0:06:49.120,0:06:51.919
you

0:06:49.919,0:06:54.000
is definitely um something important

0:06:51.919,0:06:57.199
that will help you in life

0:06:54.000,0:06:59.280
um good answer another very mature

0:06:57.199,0:07:01.440
answer

0:06:59.280,0:07:02.560
question four when someone is feeling

0:07:01.440,0:07:04.720
stressed

0:07:02.560,0:07:07.440
what are three suggestions you’d share

0:07:04.720,0:07:10.080
with them to help de-stress them

0:07:07.440,0:07:12.160
well yeah um i definitely am kind of a

0:07:10.080,0:07:13.840
pro on this because i have been stressed

0:07:12.160,0:07:17.039
a lot and you guys have helped me

0:07:13.840,0:07:19.520
um one of the things i do is

0:07:17.039,0:07:21.680
try to tell them to step away from

0:07:19.520,0:07:23.440
whatever is making them stressed and to

0:07:21.680,0:07:26.080
take a breather because

0:07:23.440,0:07:26.720
that’s basically what you need to do um

0:07:26.080,0:07:29.440
that’s

0:07:26.720,0:07:30.800
kind of the first step in stopping you

0:07:29.440,0:07:33.759
from being stressed

0:07:30.800,0:07:35.440
you need to step away and calm yourself

0:07:33.759,0:07:37.599
down because if you don’t calm yourself

0:07:35.440,0:07:40.080
down you’re not gonna think rationally

0:07:37.599,0:07:40.720
i’ve had that happen to me many times

0:07:40.080,0:07:42.960
before

0:07:40.720,0:07:44.800
and stepping back has always helped me

0:07:42.960,0:07:48.000
okay another thing

0:07:44.800,0:07:49.360
would be to identify the problem like we

0:07:48.000,0:07:52.479
said before in our problem

0:07:49.360,0:07:54.960
solving podcasts and almost i mentioned

0:07:52.479,0:07:57.759
in almost every podcast now

0:07:54.960,0:07:58.560
um identifying the problem that you’re

0:07:57.759,0:08:01.280
dealing with

0:07:58.560,0:08:02.000
is definitely a major thing to help you

0:08:01.280,0:08:04.160
realize

0:08:02.000,0:08:05.520
like what is causing you the stress and

0:08:04.160,0:08:08.080
how can we fix it

0:08:05.520,0:08:09.840
it’s kind of like that um so yeah

0:08:08.080,0:08:11.919
identifying the problem and

0:08:09.840,0:08:13.440
having the problem solving skills would

0:08:11.919,0:08:17.440
definitely help you

0:08:13.440,0:08:20.720
stop being stressed and another thing

0:08:17.440,0:08:23.120
is if you are a little too stressed

0:08:20.720,0:08:24.800
and walking away doesn’t entirely help

0:08:23.120,0:08:27.520
you might want to lash out a bit

0:08:24.800,0:08:28.240
like you can scream you can cry you can

0:08:27.520,0:08:31.360
like

0:08:28.240,0:08:33.760
just be the best yeah you get

0:08:31.360,0:08:35.360
you need to vent a little bit okay good

0:08:33.760,0:08:36.640
answers good answer have they have these

0:08:35.360,0:08:40.240
techniques helped you

0:08:36.640,0:08:42.399
yeah um walking away i

0:08:40.240,0:08:43.839
have done before and it’s definitely

0:08:42.399,0:08:45.600
helped because

0:08:43.839,0:08:47.279
getting away from the thing that’s been

0:08:45.600,0:08:51.120
stressing me out

0:08:47.279,0:08:54.880
really works and i and when i

0:08:51.120,0:08:55.680
relax and calm down um and step away

0:08:54.880,0:08:58.240
from

0:08:55.680,0:08:59.440
all the chaos going on that has caused

0:08:58.240,0:09:01.839
me to be stressed

0:08:59.440,0:09:03.040
definitely works um identifying the

0:09:01.839,0:09:05.040
problem

0:09:03.040,0:09:06.480
that is something that i’ve tried to be

0:09:05.040,0:09:09.680
doing but of course

0:09:06.480,0:09:11.440
not always um i’m not always mentally

0:09:09.680,0:09:14.080
prepared for which is why

0:09:11.440,0:09:16.240
stepping back or venting would probably

0:09:14.080,0:09:19.519
be one of the first steps you should do

0:09:16.240,0:09:20.959
um before you identify the problem

0:09:19.519,0:09:22.880
because you don’t think rationally when

0:09:20.959,0:09:25.440
you’re stressed and for

0:09:22.880,0:09:27.839
venting i’ve done venting before mommy

0:09:25.440,0:09:30.959
allows me to vent whenever i really have

0:09:27.839,0:09:32.880
like too much going on like if you have

0:09:30.959,0:09:34.880
like a medium amount of stress

0:09:32.880,0:09:36.720
you can probably just like go and calm

0:09:34.880,0:09:38.480
yourself down but if you have too much

0:09:36.720,0:09:41.519
built up stress you probably need to

0:09:38.480,0:09:44.000
um lash out a bit yep i think you’re

0:09:41.519,0:09:46.720
you’re absolutely right there

0:09:44.000,0:09:47.120
question five how would you explain the

0:09:46.720,0:09:49.600
word

0:09:47.120,0:09:51.200
love to someone without using the word

0:09:49.600,0:09:55.440
love

0:09:51.200,0:09:58.959
okay um for this word

0:09:55.440,0:09:59.839
i’m going to say that it doesn’t have to

0:09:58.959,0:10:02.399
be

0:09:59.839,0:10:03.360
i’d say that it would be more of

0:10:02.399,0:10:06.720
relationship

0:10:03.360,0:10:09.040
type whether it be family friends or

0:10:06.720,0:10:10.560
a romantic interest that you want that

0:10:09.040,0:10:14.320
um you have

0:10:10.560,0:10:16.560
i’d say that this would be

0:10:14.320,0:10:18.720
showing affection to the people who um

0:10:16.560,0:10:19.440
you hold close and having a strong

0:10:18.720,0:10:21.200
relation

0:10:19.440,0:10:23.839
and that you have a strong relationship

0:10:21.200,0:10:26.560
with okay

0:10:23.839,0:10:27.360
that works and affection can mean

0:10:26.560,0:10:30.720
anything

0:10:27.360,0:10:33.519
like giving them a hug you know um

0:10:30.720,0:10:34.000
making them feel better stuff like that

0:10:33.519,0:10:35.120
and

0:10:34.000,0:10:37.200
like you know there’s also the

0:10:35.120,0:10:40.880
materialistic side so yeah

0:10:37.200,0:10:42.560
okay that works question six

0:10:40.880,0:10:45.680
think of the worst thing that’s happened

0:10:42.560,0:10:48.480
to you and what did you learn from it

0:10:45.680,0:10:51.440
uh okay going back on my traumatic

0:10:48.480,0:10:51.440
experiences

0:10:52.320,0:10:57.600
you just i think

0:10:55.440,0:10:59.760
i think getting lost on space mountain

0:10:57.600,0:11:00.000
has to top the list of the most dramatic

0:10:59.760,0:11:02.959
stuff

0:11:00.000,0:11:04.240
that’s happened to me um so i’ll say

0:11:02.959,0:11:05.120
that’s one of the worst things that

0:11:04.240,0:11:08.640
happened to me

0:11:05.120,0:11:11.760
i got lost and what i learned from it

0:11:08.640,0:11:15.120
um i learned that

0:11:11.760,0:11:16.560
um well i learned that i should probably

0:11:15.120,0:11:19.760
try and stick with mommy

0:11:16.560,0:11:23.040
as best i can um although we really

0:11:19.760,0:11:25.680
couldn’t do much um there was really no

0:11:23.040,0:11:28.640
error on our part because there were two

0:11:25.680,0:11:31.440
exits and we had no idea like

0:11:28.640,0:11:33.120
who was at which one and we had like it

0:11:31.440,0:11:34.480
was the first time i’d been on space

0:11:33.120,0:11:36.720
mountain so

0:11:34.480,0:11:37.680
um but we learned to keep um contact

0:11:36.720,0:11:39.839
with each other

0:11:37.680,0:11:42.160
which kind of prompted me to get my own

0:11:39.839,0:11:44.079
cellular device so that i could um

0:11:42.160,0:11:46.240
communicate with you guys whenever

0:11:44.079,0:11:47.440
um i didn’t see you or if i didn’t know

0:11:46.240,0:11:50.639
where i was

0:11:47.440,0:11:53.600
right okay

0:11:50.639,0:11:54.959
uh where are we at question seven if you

0:11:53.600,0:11:57.920
were told that you would

0:11:54.959,0:11:59.519
live forever what would you change about

0:11:57.920,0:12:03.760
your life

0:11:59.519,0:12:06.560
um i try not to be as

0:12:03.760,0:12:08.800
procrasti i tried not to procrastinate

0:12:06.560,0:12:10.399
as much

0:12:08.800,0:12:12.079
yeah kind of like the shirt kind of like

0:12:10.399,0:12:13.680
the shirt um

0:12:12.079,0:12:16.800
i don’t normally procrastinate on

0:12:13.680,0:12:20.639
schoolwork i mainly procrastinate on

0:12:16.800,0:12:22.480
other stuff like occasionally

0:12:20.639,0:12:25.360
i’ll procrastinate on something i’m

0:12:22.480,0:12:28.079
working on a drawing the video

0:12:25.360,0:12:29.680
and sometimes i don’t always check on

0:12:28.079,0:12:32.959
laundry when i need to

0:12:29.680,0:12:34.240
so um yeah i’m i would try not to

0:12:32.959,0:12:36.480
procrastinate as much

0:12:34.240,0:12:38.880
because i’d get a lot more done okay

0:12:36.480,0:12:41.680
i’ll buy that

0:12:38.880,0:12:43.040
uh how would you make an impact on the

0:12:41.680,0:12:45.120
world

0:12:43.040,0:12:46.880
as a teenager how can you make an impact

0:12:45.120,0:12:49.519
on the world as a teenager

0:12:46.880,0:12:51.360
uh okay so there’s a lot of things that

0:12:49.519,0:12:55.440
restricts teenagers

0:12:51.360,0:12:58.800
um but that doesn’t mean we can’t do

0:12:55.440,0:12:59.680
nothing um although we are restricted in

0:12:58.800,0:13:03.440
things we can do

0:12:59.680,0:13:06.800
like we can’t normally um

0:13:03.440,0:13:09.760
i don’t know drive around and um

0:13:06.800,0:13:10.560
i don’t know honk our horns i don’t know

0:13:09.760,0:13:13.760
i don’t know

0:13:10.560,0:13:16.320
like any specific like restrictions off

0:13:13.760,0:13:17.680
the top of my head right now um but i do

0:13:16.320,0:13:21.040
know that teenagers

0:13:17.680,0:13:21.680
could make a difference by trying to

0:13:21.040,0:13:23.920
show

0:13:21.680,0:13:25.360
their beliefs like joining peaceful

0:13:23.920,0:13:28.880
protests

0:13:25.360,0:13:31.600
like um joining peaceful protests

0:13:28.880,0:13:32.560
on major events going on stuff that they

0:13:31.600,0:13:35.920
believe that

0:13:32.560,0:13:39.680
should um change and

0:13:35.920,0:13:41.519
um so inspiring others to

0:13:39.680,0:13:44.079
take action or something along those

0:13:41.519,0:13:45.839
lines yeah and like another big thing is

0:13:44.079,0:13:47.600
that they can use social media because

0:13:45.839,0:13:48.000
i’m pretty sure most teenagers have

0:13:47.600,0:13:51.519
social

0:13:48.000,0:13:53.120
media unless you’re not very um

0:13:51.519,0:13:54.639
unless you don’t really use social media

0:13:53.120,0:13:57.680
like me but you know

0:13:54.639,0:14:00.839
right okay good enough

0:13:57.680,0:14:02.000
so this is kind of a tough hypothetical

0:14:00.839,0:14:03.839
question

0:14:02.000,0:14:06.320
if you were in a situation where you

0:14:03.839,0:14:08.000
could save a person but by saving that

0:14:06.320,0:14:10.800
person

0:14:08.000,0:14:12.399
your actions might let 10 other people

0:14:10.800,0:14:16.079
die

0:14:12.399,0:14:19.760
is that okay okay

0:14:16.079,0:14:23.120
so it depends um

0:14:19.760,0:14:23.120
okay that’s uh

0:14:24.639,0:14:28.079
i wouldn’t really say that it is okay

0:14:27.519,0:14:30.560
unless

0:14:28.079,0:14:31.199
like there was a way to save the rest of

0:14:30.560,0:14:34.560
them

0:14:31.199,0:14:35.120
or um at least more than one of them

0:14:34.560,0:14:38.000
because

0:14:35.120,0:14:38.959
like you can’t you shouldn’t really let

0:14:38.000,0:14:41.839
10 people die

0:14:38.959,0:14:42.639
just to save one life i mean on some

0:14:41.839,0:14:45.600
occasions

0:14:42.639,0:14:47.199
yes it would be better um to save that

0:14:45.600,0:14:50.800
one person

0:14:47.199,0:14:53.040
um but letting like

0:14:50.800,0:14:54.959
if you know that there’s another option

0:14:53.040,0:14:57.839
where you could save more people

0:14:54.959,0:14:59.440
and let less people die then you’d

0:14:57.839,0:15:00.480
probably want to go for that option

0:14:59.440,0:15:03.680
because i don’t think

0:15:00.480,0:15:05.120
like 10 people dead one life saved is

0:15:03.680,0:15:07.279
really a good ratio

0:15:05.120,0:15:10.000
so the needs of the many outweigh the

0:15:07.279,0:15:13.120
needs of the few

0:15:10.000,0:15:15.680
okay by that

0:15:13.120,0:15:16.480
question 10 if we halfway through the

0:15:15.680,0:15:18.800
list here

0:15:16.480,0:15:20.160
awesome is there such a thing as free

0:15:18.800,0:15:23.519
will

0:15:20.160,0:15:26.720
uh yes because

0:15:23.519,0:15:28.320
i’m gonna use an example for t for kids

0:15:26.720,0:15:31.680
and their parents

0:15:28.320,0:15:35.680
um kids when they’re very young

0:15:31.680,0:15:37.920
they have a lot of restrictions and um

0:15:35.680,0:15:41.040
they need to follow the rules of their

0:15:37.920,0:15:44.880
parents along with the rules of society

0:15:41.040,0:15:46.880
and as they get older um their parents

0:15:44.880,0:15:48.880
lift up the restrictions a bit making

0:15:46.880,0:15:50.959
sure they use it responsibly

0:15:48.880,0:15:53.680
and then eventually society begins to

0:15:50.959,0:15:55.519
lift some of the restrictions so

0:15:53.680,0:15:57.279
i said there is such a thing as free

0:15:55.519,0:15:59.360
will but

0:15:57.279,0:16:00.959
um it still comes with rules that you

0:15:59.360,0:16:04.160
need to follow

0:16:00.959,0:16:07.759
okay what do you think

0:16:04.160,0:16:10.399
rules a person’s personality more

0:16:07.759,0:16:12.560
nature or nurture and let me explain

0:16:10.399,0:16:16.000
what that actually means

0:16:12.560,0:16:17.680
nature is a person is going to behave

0:16:16.000,0:16:19.680
the way that a person is

0:16:17.680,0:16:22.399
naturally that’s just their their

0:16:19.680,0:16:24.720
personality their genetics or whatever

0:16:22.399,0:16:26.720
nurture is about how they were brought

0:16:24.720,0:16:27.839
up how you know their parents teaching

0:16:26.720,0:16:30.399
them right and wrong

0:16:27.839,0:16:30.959
and morals and stuff like that so what

0:16:30.399,0:16:34.959
do you

0:16:30.959,0:16:37.600
think ultimately defines

0:16:34.959,0:16:38.560
a person’s personality more is it the

0:16:37.600,0:16:41.759
nature side

0:16:38.560,0:16:45.199
or the nurture side okay

0:16:41.759,0:16:48.800
um i’d say that

0:16:45.199,0:16:51.199
they’re both equal because nurture

0:16:48.800,0:16:52.000
is how your parents teach you their

0:16:51.199,0:16:55.199
morals

0:16:52.000,0:16:56.240
and what they and what some of their

0:16:55.199,0:16:58.240
beliefs are

0:16:56.240,0:17:01.600
and then nature is something that came

0:16:58.240,0:17:04.959
naturally or you develop it over time

0:17:01.600,0:17:06.000
and um i’d say that they’re both equal

0:17:04.959,0:17:08.160
opportunities

0:17:06.000,0:17:09.360
um to shape a person’s personality

0:17:08.160,0:17:12.160
because

0:17:09.360,0:17:13.520
um on the nurture on the nurture side

0:17:12.160,0:17:15.280
you have the parents teaching them

0:17:13.520,0:17:17.760
morals beliefs

0:17:15.280,0:17:19.520
well on the well on the nature side you

0:17:17.760,0:17:21.679
get their hobbies

0:17:19.520,0:17:22.880
and some of the things they like and

0:17:21.679,0:17:26.319
dislike

0:17:22.880,0:17:26.959
and all that and ultimately nature and

0:17:26.319,0:17:31.120
nurture

0:17:26.959,0:17:33.440
can go impact every single aspect

0:17:31.120,0:17:35.840
although most of the time nurture

0:17:33.440,0:17:39.039
impacts morals and beliefs

0:17:35.840,0:17:40.240
while nature impacts hobbies likes and

0:17:39.039,0:17:43.840
dislikes

0:17:40.240,0:17:43.840
okay interesting take on that

0:17:43.919,0:17:52.080
uh where are we at we are on question 12

0:17:47.039,0:17:52.080
can we know happiness without sadness

0:17:54.240,0:17:57.120
i’d say

0:17:58.160,0:18:01.840
not really because

0:18:01.919,0:18:07.600
happiness without sadness would just be

0:18:05.440,0:18:09.679
feeling

0:18:07.600,0:18:11.039
would just be feeling the positive side

0:18:09.679,0:18:13.039
and i’d

0:18:11.039,0:18:14.400
i’ve noticed that when people feel the

0:18:13.039,0:18:16.400
positive of something

0:18:14.400,0:18:18.960
and don’t experience the negative they

0:18:16.400,0:18:23.520
don’t seem to appreciate it as much

0:18:18.960,0:18:25.679
um kind of like um

0:18:23.520,0:18:27.200
kind of like how we were saying before

0:18:25.679,0:18:30.320
with the three things that i

0:18:27.200,0:18:32.320
um appreciate where some kids would have

0:18:30.320,0:18:35.039
more materialistic things

0:18:32.320,0:18:36.480
most of the time it’s because they don’t

0:18:35.039,0:18:39.760
really

0:18:36.480,0:18:41.600
fully understand when

0:18:39.760,0:18:43.440
they don’t fully understand what they

0:18:41.600,0:18:46.480
have and

0:18:43.440,0:18:48.000
therefore can’t fully be grateful for it

0:18:46.480,0:18:49.760
and this is the same thing with

0:18:48.000,0:18:53.520
happiness and sadness

0:18:49.760,0:18:56.559
um one of the things i know about

0:18:53.520,0:18:59.280
is that you can’t you don’t learn to

0:18:56.559,0:19:02.400
appreciate the positives when it

0:18:59.280,0:19:04.400
until it’s taken away from you um and i

0:19:02.400,0:19:05.200
think this is sort of the same premise

0:19:04.400,0:19:08.240
because

0:19:05.200,0:19:10.640
sadness is basically the obvious

0:19:08.240,0:19:13.200
the opposite of happiness and your

0:19:10.640,0:19:14.320
happiness gets taken away and turns into

0:19:13.200,0:19:16.799
sadness

0:19:14.320,0:19:18.240
and then you really need to appreciate

0:19:16.799,0:19:20.400
like the positive

0:19:18.240,0:19:21.600
side because if you have a negative

0:19:20.400,0:19:24.880
outlook like

0:19:21.600,0:19:26.720
if you had a positive i’m gonna try

0:19:24.880,0:19:28.320
and go for the negative and positive

0:19:26.720,0:19:32.240
outlook on things

0:19:28.320,0:19:35.360
like if you constantly

0:19:32.240,0:19:37.520
um if you constantly are positive and

0:19:35.360,0:19:39.840
one major negative effect happens

0:19:37.520,0:19:42.080
you don’t really appreciate stuff that

0:19:39.840,0:19:44.559
like the thing that you have

0:19:42.080,0:19:45.600
until it gets taken away or destroyed

0:19:44.559,0:19:48.160
and then you realize

0:19:45.600,0:19:50.840
oh no i need to be grateful for that

0:19:48.160,0:19:53.440
right it’s too late at that point right

0:19:50.840,0:19:54.400
interesting let’s flip that question a

0:19:53.440,0:19:56.960
little bit

0:19:54.400,0:19:58.400
and ask can we understand good without

0:19:56.960,0:20:01.120
evil

0:19:58.400,0:20:02.640
this is kind of the same premise like

0:20:01.120,0:20:06.640
being good

0:20:02.640,0:20:09.919
well actually being good

0:20:06.640,0:20:10.799
you don’t really need to have evil to be

0:20:09.919,0:20:13.840
good

0:20:10.799,0:20:15.679
being good is helping problems no matter

0:20:13.840,0:20:17.600
if it’s evil or not

0:20:15.679,0:20:20.400
like some things you really can’t

0:20:17.600,0:20:23.200
control the evil really doesn’t do

0:20:20.400,0:20:24.320
it’s just natural stuff that um good

0:20:23.200,0:20:27.840
people do

0:20:24.320,0:20:30.480
evil is sort of just in there to like

0:20:27.840,0:20:31.840
mess up stuff and have the heroes be

0:20:30.480,0:20:34.720
even more power

0:20:31.840,0:20:35.919
and have the good be more be even better

0:20:34.720,0:20:37.360
than before

0:20:35.919,0:20:40.000
um but it’s still kind of the same

0:20:37.360,0:20:43.360
premise like if eva was taken away

0:20:40.000,0:20:43.840
you then like before evil you wouldn’t

0:20:43.360,0:20:47.360
really

0:20:43.840,0:20:49.760
understand like the good um well

0:20:47.360,0:20:51.840
with evil you wouldn’t really understand

0:20:49.760,0:20:55.120
like the other little things that

0:20:51.840,0:20:56.000
um good does when there’s something

0:20:55.120,0:20:58.640
going on

0:20:56.000,0:21:00.400
um but and you’d only like focus on evil

0:20:58.640,0:21:02.240
because evil does something major and

0:21:00.400,0:21:04.240
then the good has to

0:21:02.240,0:21:06.559
um stop that and then it gets everyone’s

0:21:04.240,0:21:09.600
attention but then when the evil’s gone

0:21:06.559,0:21:11.679
and the good begins to um

0:21:09.600,0:21:13.520
do all the little things it did before

0:21:11.679,0:21:17.919
then people begin to appreciate it

0:21:13.520,0:21:20.960
okay i like that thank you

0:21:17.919,0:21:22.080
where is the line between art and not

0:21:20.960,0:21:25.360
art

0:21:22.080,0:21:27.440
okay i believe that art

0:21:25.360,0:21:28.880
is something that you put effort in

0:21:27.440,0:21:30.559
something that you’re passionate about

0:21:28.880,0:21:31.039
and something that you at least want to

0:21:30.559,0:21:34.559
try

0:21:31.039,0:21:35.600
in um you can’t just like slap a bunch

0:21:34.559,0:21:37.039
of

0:21:35.600,0:21:39.120
like you can’t just slap a bunch of

0:21:37.039,0:21:41.600
paint on a canvas and call it

0:21:39.120,0:21:43.200
art when you really put no effort in it

0:21:41.600,0:21:44.480
i don’t really understand why it gets so

0:21:43.200,0:21:47.200
much attention

0:21:44.480,0:21:49.200
unless people put like true effort or at

0:21:47.200,0:21:52.799
least a little bit of effort and passion

0:21:49.200,0:21:55.120
into something i consider it art even if

0:21:52.799,0:21:56.400
it wasn’t someone’s best preference i’d

0:21:55.120,0:21:58.799
still consider it art

0:21:56.400,0:22:00.960
if they had put at least a little bit of

0:21:58.799,0:22:04.240
effort and passion into it

0:22:00.960,0:22:06.159
okay i’ll buy that what benefits does

0:22:04.240,0:22:09.760
art provide society

0:22:06.159,0:22:11.760
okay so when we talk about art

0:22:09.760,0:22:13.760
there’s a a lot of people will probably

0:22:11.760,0:22:15.840
think it’s just like the drawing aspect

0:22:13.760,0:22:16.640
of it but art impacts a lot more than

0:22:15.840,0:22:19.360
that

0:22:16.640,0:22:20.400
art is music art is writing art is

0:22:19.360,0:22:23.919
building

0:22:20.400,0:22:25.039
art can be part of anything like i said

0:22:23.919,0:22:27.360
before

0:22:25.039,0:22:29.360
art is basically when you put effort

0:22:27.360,0:22:31.520
into something you’re passionate about

0:22:29.360,0:22:33.440
even if it’s not gonna be the best you

0:22:31.520,0:22:34.320
still put effort into it which makes it

0:22:33.440,0:22:36.559
art

0:22:34.320,0:22:38.559
and i feel like a lot of people put

0:22:36.559,0:22:41.760
effort and know a lot of things

0:22:38.559,0:22:43.760
goals can be goals can be hard even like

0:22:41.760,0:22:45.919
if you put effort into it

0:22:43.760,0:22:48.080
um your goals can become your own art

0:22:45.919,0:22:48.960
and can really shape the kind of person

0:22:48.080,0:22:51.200
you are

0:22:48.960,0:22:52.240
and shape how other people can view you

0:22:51.200,0:22:54.720
so

0:22:52.240,0:22:55.280
interesting take i’d say art is very

0:22:54.720,0:22:59.120
important

0:22:55.280,0:23:02.240
in society okay does hardship

0:22:59.120,0:23:05.280
make a person stronger

0:23:02.240,0:23:08.400
uh yes definitely um

0:23:05.280,0:23:10.159
now with hardship um i’m also going to

0:23:08.400,0:23:11.280
talk a bit about change and hardship at

0:23:10.159,0:23:12.400
the same time

0:23:11.280,0:23:15.120
because if someone went through

0:23:12.400,0:23:15.520
something difficult it’s basically a

0:23:15.120,0:23:18.480
huge

0:23:15.520,0:23:20.480
change for them and changes normally

0:23:18.480,0:23:22.720
make people stronger they need to adjust

0:23:20.480,0:23:23.760
to the hardship and changes that happen

0:23:22.720,0:23:25.120
in their life

0:23:23.760,0:23:27.200
and i definitely think it makes them

0:23:25.120,0:23:28.559
stronger it makes them more able to

0:23:27.200,0:23:31.280
adapt to their new

0:23:28.559,0:23:32.159
to newer problems and it definitely

0:23:31.280,0:23:34.480
makes them

0:23:32.159,0:23:35.280
stronger mentally and possibly

0:23:34.480,0:23:38.320
physically

0:23:35.280,0:23:40.320
if um if whatever

0:23:38.320,0:23:42.799
hardship they’re dealing with um deals

0:23:40.320,0:23:46.000
with their physical strength

0:23:42.799,0:23:46.960
okay what do you think or what do you

0:23:46.000,0:23:50.720
attribute

0:23:46.960,0:23:54.880
the biggest successes in your life to

0:23:50.720,0:23:58.000
um my basic my biggest successes

0:23:54.880,0:24:01.440
um i’d probably kind of contribute them

0:23:58.000,0:24:03.440
to more or less my personality

0:24:01.440,0:24:06.159
um i’ve been known to be very

0:24:03.440,0:24:08.720
imaginative and creative

0:24:06.159,0:24:10.720
pretty much most of my life i always

0:24:08.720,0:24:11.840
imagined little scenarios especially

0:24:10.720,0:24:14.799
when i was younger

0:24:11.840,0:24:16.159
and i’d want to like play them out and

0:24:14.799,0:24:18.400
i’d say that some of my biggest

0:24:16.159,0:24:21.200
successes come from that imagination

0:24:18.400,0:24:22.320
because i am really passionate about art

0:24:21.200,0:24:24.159
and i really like some

0:24:22.320,0:24:25.440
and i really like a lot of the stuff i

0:24:24.159,0:24:27.520
do i have

0:24:25.440,0:24:28.880
expressed my art in many different ways

0:24:27.520,0:24:31.919
and um

0:24:28.880,0:24:32.799
i definitely think that a lot of um the

0:24:31.919,0:24:35.120
stuff i do

0:24:32.799,0:24:36.559
with my creativity and imagine and

0:24:35.120,0:24:38.480
imagination

0:24:36.559,0:24:40.320
is some of the biggest success biggest

0:24:38.480,0:24:43.279
successes i have

0:24:40.320,0:24:44.400
also with you know the ability of being

0:24:43.279,0:24:47.600
smart

0:24:44.400,0:24:50.400
okay that makes sense

0:24:47.600,0:24:52.320
is it better for a person to have a

0:24:50.400,0:24:54.960
broad knowledge base

0:24:52.320,0:24:57.360
or a deep knowledge base so is it better

0:24:54.960,0:25:00.320
to be a jack of all trades

0:24:57.360,0:25:02.799
and a master of none or a master of one

0:25:00.320,0:25:06.880
trade and one trade only

0:25:02.799,0:25:10.159
um i’d say it’s better to be

0:25:06.880,0:25:13.600
um known i’d say but

0:25:10.159,0:25:15.679
it would be better to know more trades

0:25:13.600,0:25:16.960
um than to just be a master at one

0:25:15.679,0:25:18.799
because

0:25:16.960,0:25:20.159
um i’m pretty sure we talked about this

0:25:18.799,0:25:22.080
before but

0:25:20.159,0:25:23.279
you probably should have more you

0:25:22.080,0:25:25.440
probably should know

0:25:23.279,0:25:26.720
some more skills rather than be great at

0:25:25.440,0:25:28.080
just one thing

0:25:26.720,0:25:30.720
because then you’re just a one trick

0:25:28.080,0:25:32.080
pony right um and i think we did talk

0:25:30.720,0:25:35.440
about that and your

0:25:32.080,0:25:37.440
answer is consistent with that

0:25:35.440,0:25:38.799
so before i ask this next question let

0:25:37.440,0:25:42.400
me

0:25:38.799,0:25:44.720
kind of set it up

0:25:42.400,0:25:47.279
so there’s a difference between

0:25:44.720,0:25:49.360
intelligence and wisdom

0:25:47.279,0:25:51.520
intelligence comes from learning wisdom

0:25:49.360,0:25:53.200
comes from learning from experience

0:25:51.520,0:25:55.679
so intelligence is kind of a book

0:25:53.200,0:25:58.480
knowledge wisdom is

0:25:55.679,0:26:01.039
real world knowledge so based on that

0:25:58.480,0:26:05.440
definition

0:26:01.039,0:26:08.640
is intelligence or wisdom more helpful

0:26:05.440,0:26:10.799
i’d say wisdom because um

0:26:08.640,0:26:12.880
i’ve talked a lot about how people can

0:26:10.799,0:26:15.760
learn from their experiences

0:26:12.880,0:26:16.400
and wisdom definitely attributes and

0:26:15.760,0:26:18.880
wisdom

0:26:16.400,0:26:20.960
can you you can definitely learn with

0:26:18.880,0:26:23.679
you can definitely gain wisdom

0:26:20.960,0:26:25.440
from any of your experiences and even if

0:26:23.679,0:26:27.760
you don’t know much about the world

0:26:25.440,0:26:28.559
you can learn more about you can learn

0:26:27.760,0:26:31.360
about

0:26:28.559,0:26:33.120
your world with your own experiences and

0:26:31.360,0:26:36.640
gain your own wisdom

0:26:33.120,0:26:38.400
okay that makes a perfect sense

0:26:36.640,0:26:40.320
and the last question that we have in

0:26:38.400,0:26:43.200
this set is

0:26:40.320,0:26:45.039
is it better to be a big fish in a small

0:26:43.200,0:26:47.279
pond or a small fish

0:26:45.039,0:26:48.480
in a big pond you know what i’m asking

0:26:47.279,0:26:51.279
here yep

0:26:48.480,0:26:52.320
um basically would it be better to know

0:26:51.279,0:26:54.320
everything

0:26:52.320,0:26:55.679
and not be able to learn more well i’m

0:26:54.320,0:26:58.640
gonna give an example

0:26:55.679,0:26:59.760
would be better to know al most pretty

0:26:58.640,0:27:02.480
much everything

0:26:59.760,0:27:02.799
and not be able to learn much more and

0:27:02.480,0:27:05.279
know

0:27:02.799,0:27:07.360
not much but be able to learn a lot well

0:27:05.279,0:27:08.159
think of it from a different perspective

0:27:07.360,0:27:11.600
think of it

0:27:08.159,0:27:16.320
as you’re going into school

0:27:11.600,0:27:19.360
okay so when you’re going into

0:27:16.320,0:27:21.360
what grade are you in now eighth eighth

0:27:19.360,0:27:23.679
so when you go into ninth range you’re

0:27:21.360,0:27:26.799
going to a new school right

0:27:23.679,0:27:28.880
so right now you’re a big fish in a

0:27:26.799,0:27:30.000
little pond so you’re at the top of the

0:27:28.880,0:27:33.600
food chain right now

0:27:30.000,0:27:35.279
being at the top of the class next year

0:27:33.600,0:27:38.960
when you go into ninth raid you’re going

0:27:35.279,0:27:42.000
to be a small fish in a much bigger pond

0:27:38.960,0:27:43.760
so think of it from that perspective and

0:27:42.000,0:27:48.080
then give me your answer

0:27:43.760,0:27:51.279
okay um

0:27:48.080,0:27:54.399
um i’d say it might be better to be

0:27:51.279,0:27:56.080
a small fish in a big pond and i’d say

0:27:54.399,0:27:58.960
that because

0:27:56.080,0:28:01.039
with that you can learn more about it

0:27:58.960,0:28:02.880
and eventually you will become a big

0:28:01.039,0:28:04.960
fish in a little pond

0:28:02.880,0:28:06.159
like it’s sort of that development

0:28:04.960,0:28:08.320
process well

0:28:06.159,0:28:09.360
the big fish in a small pond you already

0:28:08.320,0:28:12.480
learned everything

0:28:09.360,0:28:14.559
you really don’t like unless you like

0:28:12.480,0:28:16.000
move into an even bigger pond and then

0:28:14.559,0:28:17.919
you start the whole cycle

0:28:16.000,0:28:20.880
again but i think being a small fish in

0:28:17.919,0:28:24.399
a big pond gives you more of a chance to

0:28:20.880,0:28:26.080
expand and learn so yeah i’d say being a

0:28:24.399,0:28:29.360
small fish in a big pond is better

0:28:26.080,0:28:31.520
okay so that was all we had for

0:28:29.360,0:28:32.960
our philosophical questions we’ll take a

0:28:31.520,0:28:35.039
quick break we’ll come back and we’ll

0:29:47.200,0:29:54.240
welcome back we are talking

0:29:50.399,0:29:55.679
q and a series today and we are talking

0:29:54.240,0:29:59.760
about

0:29:55.679,0:30:00.399
politics so first question in our oh i

0:29:59.760,0:30:03.919
lost my

0:30:00.399,0:30:05.440
my cameras uh oh hang on well let’s go

0:30:03.919,0:30:08.640
to this one for now

0:30:05.440,0:30:12.080
so the first question in our

0:30:08.640,0:30:16.240
politics segment is

0:30:12.080,0:30:19.360
why does politics matter to you

0:30:16.240,0:30:22.159
okay so politics matters to me

0:30:19.360,0:30:23.520
because there’s a lot more that goes

0:30:22.159,0:30:26.720
into it

0:30:23.520,0:30:29.840
politics um is basically

0:30:26.720,0:30:32.880
when you kind of choose who um

0:30:29.840,0:30:34.880
makes the rules of your world

0:30:32.880,0:30:36.399
well not the world but you know your

0:30:34.880,0:30:39.600
country your state

0:30:36.399,0:30:41.200
your town that kind of thing and i’d say

0:30:39.600,0:30:44.399
it matters because

0:30:41.200,0:30:46.880
you never know if you’re going to get

0:30:44.399,0:30:49.520
a good person or a bad person especially

0:30:46.880,0:30:52.000
if like you’re going through

0:30:49.520,0:30:53.279
something major in something majors

0:30:52.000,0:30:56.480
going on through the world

0:30:53.279,0:30:58.799
you need you need a steady

0:30:56.480,0:31:00.880
um you need someone steady to help you

0:30:58.799,0:31:04.320
through that and depending on

0:31:00.880,0:31:06.880
who you pick is how the

0:31:04.320,0:31:08.320
is how everything’s gonna go okay good

0:31:06.880,0:31:10.240
answer

0:31:08.320,0:31:14.320
what do you think is the most important

0:31:10.240,0:31:18.640
issue facing the united states today

0:31:14.320,0:31:21.200
uh i kind of said this before in the

0:31:18.640,0:31:26.080
last podcast but i’d say right now

0:31:21.200,0:31:28.399
covered 19 and um the hatred going on

0:31:26.080,0:31:31.840
okay don’t know which one is worse

0:31:28.399,0:31:34.880
they’re both pretty high on the scale

0:31:31.840,0:31:38.080
what do you think we as a nation can do

0:31:34.880,0:31:41.360
to elect better people to office

0:31:38.080,0:31:45.120
um so

0:31:41.360,0:31:48.159
i’d say that i’d want to

0:31:45.120,0:31:49.600
somewhat make it somewhat mandatory to

0:31:48.159,0:31:52.080
vote because

0:31:49.600,0:31:54.159
electing peop because voting is very

0:31:52.080,0:31:56.000
important and i’d say that

0:31:54.159,0:31:57.760
it’s important to vote like i said

0:31:56.000,0:32:01.440
before like

0:31:57.760,0:32:02.720
who you vote into who whoever you vote

0:32:01.440,0:32:05.519
and know whatever

0:32:02.720,0:32:06.960
in what to whatever position um you’re

0:32:05.519,0:32:09.600
voting for

0:32:06.960,0:32:10.960
it will it can determine like your

0:32:09.600,0:32:13.440
entire lifestyle like

0:32:10.960,0:32:14.080
your entire lifestyle could change if

0:32:13.440,0:32:17.440
like

0:32:14.080,0:32:20.720
you elect um one person so

0:32:17.440,0:32:23.760
that’s true that’s very true

0:32:20.720,0:32:26.559
is the confederate flag a symbol of

0:32:23.760,0:32:28.960
heritage or a symbol of hate to you

0:32:26.559,0:32:30.240
um what is the confederate lag the

0:32:28.960,0:32:34.080
confederate flag

0:32:30.240,0:32:34.880
is the stars and bars that that was used

0:32:34.080,0:32:38.240
during the

0:32:34.880,0:32:43.120
rebel the um civil war that’s what the

0:32:38.240,0:32:45.039
south used as their flag and it’s it was

0:32:43.120,0:32:47.600
integrated into a number of

0:32:45.039,0:32:49.919
state flags from the southern states so

0:32:47.600,0:32:52.480
it’s kind of represents

0:32:49.919,0:32:53.679
to to the southern states it represents

0:32:52.480,0:32:55.679
their

0:32:53.679,0:32:58.080
their culture their heritage it’s

0:32:55.679,0:33:00.159
something that they’re proud of

0:32:58.080,0:33:02.399
a lot of people today look at it and say

0:33:00.159,0:33:06.080
well that really is a symbol of

0:33:02.399,0:33:08.320
of slavery and and division

0:33:06.080,0:33:08.320
and

0:33:09.200,0:33:14.080
uh not revolution but uh you know being

0:33:12.240,0:33:16.000
a traitor to your country so there’s

0:33:14.080,0:33:19.519
different points of views

0:33:16.000,0:33:22.880
do you have a point of view on it um

0:33:19.519,0:33:23.679
i mean slavery is bad and i don’t think

0:33:22.880,0:33:27.120
the south

0:33:23.679,0:33:27.760
like should be like should i don’t think

0:33:27.120,0:33:30.320
it should be

0:33:27.760,0:33:30.880
good that the cell thinks that it’s part

0:33:30.320,0:33:33.120
of their

0:33:30.880,0:33:35.519
like culture but i do want but i can

0:33:33.120,0:33:36.960
understand both sides like how the south

0:33:35.519,0:33:38.399
could say like it was part of their

0:33:36.960,0:33:39.279
history and we shouldn’t forget the

0:33:38.399,0:33:41.600
history

0:33:39.279,0:33:44.080
like at all because we’re probably going

0:33:41.600,0:33:46.960
to repeat it if we don’t remember it

0:33:44.080,0:33:48.240
um but i also think that it als but on

0:33:46.960,0:33:51.039
the other hand

0:33:48.240,0:33:52.080
it does kind of symbolize the fact that

0:33:51.039,0:33:55.279
they

0:33:52.080,0:33:58.240
um stood for slavery which and diverse

0:33:55.279,0:33:59.600
and non-diverse and like uh i don’t know

0:33:58.240,0:34:02.720
how to say it

0:33:59.600,0:34:06.080
like discrimination discrimination right

0:34:02.720,0:34:09.599
so yeah okay i’ll buy that so it’s

0:34:06.080,0:34:11.839
you’re kind of split on it question

0:34:09.599,0:34:13.119
five should native american nicknames

0:34:11.839,0:34:16.480
and mascots be

0:34:13.119,0:34:20.079
banned from sports teams

0:34:16.480,0:34:23.440
um i’m

0:34:20.079,0:34:26.560
i’m probably gonna say no because

0:34:23.440,0:34:30.159
um once again it’s part of history and

0:34:26.560,0:34:32.079
they and of course they work

0:34:30.159,0:34:33.200
and i think it would be better to

0:34:32.079,0:34:35.040
remember them

0:34:33.200,0:34:36.320
of course it’s probably not the best for

0:34:35.040,0:34:40.240
sports teams

0:34:36.320,0:34:41.679
but i mean sports are pretty popular so

0:34:40.240,0:34:44.879
it might be

0:34:41.679,0:34:47.839
so it might be a good way to try next

0:34:44.879,0:34:49.119
it might it is good to express um the

0:34:47.839,0:34:52.000
names but

0:34:49.119,0:34:53.280
i don’t know if if sports is the best

0:34:52.000,0:34:57.520
way to express it

0:34:53.280,0:35:00.640
okay should supreme court justices

0:34:57.520,0:35:04.280
be elected by the people or appointed

0:35:00.640,0:35:06.160
by the president um

0:35:04.280,0:35:09.520
[Music]

0:35:06.160,0:35:10.400
well i think it would be kind of fair to

0:35:09.520,0:35:13.839
let

0:35:10.400,0:35:17.200
the people um vote because

0:35:13.839,0:35:20.960
i think just one person deciding it um

0:35:17.200,0:35:24.560
shouldn’t really be allowed because

0:35:20.960,0:35:26.079
i feel as though um that kind of takes

0:35:24.560,0:35:28.640
away from the whole

0:35:26.079,0:35:30.079
voting right of the people because the

0:35:28.640,0:35:33.359
supreme court is definitely

0:35:30.079,0:35:37.599
a major impact on

0:35:33.359,0:35:41.440
our whole um our whole government

0:35:37.599,0:35:44.960
and to not have us vote um

0:35:41.440,0:35:46.240
for a supreme court justice but vote for

0:35:44.960,0:35:49.680
everything else

0:35:46.240,0:35:52.400
i don’t think feels right okay

0:35:49.680,0:35:54.480
is it a good policy for schools to ban

0:35:52.400,0:35:57.280
the sale of soft drinks and candy and

0:35:54.480,0:35:59.760
other questionably nutritious snacks

0:35:57.280,0:36:01.119
in order to promote better eating habits

0:35:59.760,0:36:04.640
in our youth

0:36:01.119,0:36:06.160
well i don’t think they should ban well

0:36:04.640,0:36:08.000
i don’t think they should ban it

0:36:06.160,0:36:09.520
completely i think they should have it

0:36:08.000,0:36:12.000
kind of restricted

0:36:09.520,0:36:13.119
because i’ve noticed that a lot of kids

0:36:12.000,0:36:15.440
complain about

0:36:13.119,0:36:16.400
um some school lunches especially in

0:36:15.440,0:36:19.680
elementary school

0:36:16.400,0:36:22.240
saying that they’re like kind of bad um

0:36:19.680,0:36:24.480
but in middle school i’ve definitely

0:36:22.240,0:36:27.520
seen the lunches get slightly better

0:36:24.480,0:36:29.040
um as you get older i think that like

0:36:27.520,0:36:30.800
you should give the elementary kids at

0:36:29.040,0:36:33.440
least a little better lunch

0:36:30.800,0:36:34.400
but still try and give them a healthy

0:36:33.440,0:36:37.920
lunch

0:36:34.400,0:36:41.200
um sort of like

0:36:37.920,0:36:44.400
like you need nutrients for every part

0:36:41.200,0:36:46.800
of your diet um but

0:36:44.400,0:36:47.760
it’s not too bad to have like a small

0:36:46.800,0:36:50.000
little snack

0:36:47.760,0:36:51.440
given and i don’t think they should be

0:36:50.000,0:36:53.200
like poorly done

0:36:51.440,0:36:54.480
to where the kids won’t even want to eat

0:36:53.200,0:36:55.839
it

0:36:54.480,0:36:59.760
so i definitely think changing up the

0:36:55.839,0:37:02.000
food would be slightly better okay

0:36:59.760,0:37:04.240
do you trust the government to only

0:37:02.000,0:37:06.240
utilize access to your email

0:37:04.240,0:37:08.480
and other personal information for good

0:37:06.240,0:37:12.640
causes like crime prevention

0:37:08.480,0:37:12.640
and anti-terrorist activities

0:37:13.200,0:37:19.839
well i don’t i think like

0:37:16.880,0:37:21.440
they could use it for some of the social

0:37:19.839,0:37:23.040
media stuff

0:37:21.440,0:37:25.119
but not really for your personal

0:37:23.040,0:37:26.880
information we’ve talked about privacy

0:37:25.119,0:37:28.800
before and how important it is

0:37:26.880,0:37:30.400
and i don’t think it’s fair that the

0:37:28.800,0:37:31.440
government should be looking in your

0:37:30.400,0:37:34.480
personal

0:37:31.440,0:37:36.720
private information because privacy is

0:37:34.480,0:37:39.280
privacy for a reason and

0:37:36.720,0:37:40.480
i know they’re gonna think and i know

0:37:39.280,0:37:42.079
they’re gonna think oh

0:37:40.480,0:37:43.760
if you’re going to have everything

0:37:42.079,0:37:45.359
private then you’re probably doing

0:37:43.760,0:37:47.599
something sneaky and yes

0:37:45.359,0:37:49.359
some people can do that but a lot of

0:37:47.599,0:37:49.760
times it’s just people who don’t want to

0:37:49.359,0:37:51.839
share

0:37:49.760,0:37:53.359
the personal information they can have

0:37:51.839,0:37:54.960
stuff going on at home that they don’t

0:37:53.359,0:37:56.400
want to share with the government or the

0:37:54.960,0:37:59.920
rest of the world

0:37:56.400,0:38:01.839
okay i’ll buy that should it be legal to

0:37:59.920,0:38:05.040
give the death penalty to someone who

0:38:01.839,0:38:09.119
commits a crime as a minor

0:38:05.040,0:38:11.839
um i don’t think like

0:38:09.119,0:38:12.640
um i don’t think it should you should

0:38:11.839,0:38:14.560
give a pen

0:38:12.640,0:38:15.680
a penalty for someone who commits a

0:38:14.560,0:38:19.760
crime

0:38:15.680,0:38:23.359
um like us what do you mean by minor

0:38:19.760,0:38:25.520
someone under the age of 18. oh um

0:38:23.359,0:38:26.880
definitely not a death penalty i don’t

0:38:25.520,0:38:28.160
really understand why they would do the

0:38:26.880,0:38:29.839
death penalty

0:38:28.160,0:38:31.440
i can understand them like trying to

0:38:29.839,0:38:34.480
send them to

0:38:31.440,0:38:36.240
jail or the juvent or like well let’s

0:38:34.480,0:38:37.839
let’s look at it from the perspective of

0:38:36.240,0:38:40.880
school shootings so you have a

0:38:37.839,0:38:41.359
16 and 17 year old kids who go out to

0:38:40.880,0:38:45.040
school

0:38:41.359,0:38:47.119
and they shoot and kill a dozen or more

0:38:45.040,0:38:49.440
people should they get the death penalty

0:38:47.119,0:38:49.440
for that

0:38:56.800,0:39:01.040
it would depend on the reasoning why

0:38:58.640,0:39:04.160
they did it if they did it because

0:39:01.040,0:39:05.920
they just wanted to and they didn’t have

0:39:04.160,0:39:07.680
anything going on and they just were a

0:39:05.920,0:39:11.599
little crazy

0:39:07.680,0:39:12.240
possibly um but if it was just because

0:39:11.599,0:39:15.040
they were like

0:39:12.240,0:39:16.400
stressed and had some mental health

0:39:15.040,0:39:19.760
issues going on

0:39:16.400,0:39:21.520
i think they should like still be like

0:39:19.760,0:39:24.240
locked away from the rest of the world

0:39:21.520,0:39:25.839
but at least given some amount of help

0:39:24.240,0:39:28.480
um but if they did it just because they

0:39:25.839,0:39:31.040
wanted to yeah they probably

0:39:28.480,0:39:32.480
um i think they wouldn’t really want to

0:39:31.040,0:39:34.880
um

0:39:32.480,0:39:35.920
i don’t know i like unless you can help

0:39:34.880,0:39:38.480
them in a way

0:39:35.920,0:39:39.599
and if you try and help them like i i

0:39:38.480,0:39:42.720
think they shouldn’t be

0:39:39.599,0:39:43.599
like had the death penalty right away i

0:39:42.720,0:39:46.320
think they should just

0:39:43.599,0:39:47.760
like at least try and help them even if

0:39:46.320,0:39:48.960
they did it just because and if it

0:39:47.760,0:39:52.000
doesn’t help

0:39:48.960,0:39:52.720
um then if they get a little more then

0:39:52.000,0:39:55.280
if like

0:39:52.720,0:39:56.000
um it gets a little more dangerous then

0:39:55.280,0:39:59.599
maybe the death

0:39:56.000,0:40:02.400
penalty could okay um being forced

0:39:59.599,0:40:04.960
are today’s video games too violent or

0:40:02.400,0:40:07.440
sexually provocative

0:40:04.960,0:40:07.440
um

0:40:09.599,0:40:17.920
okay let’s see um i don’t think that

0:40:14.480,0:40:21.280
um some video games yes

0:40:17.920,0:40:24.640
um are a bit too violent um and

0:40:21.280,0:40:27.359
bad for uh certain ages um

0:40:24.640,0:40:28.720
but i definitely think that not many

0:40:27.359,0:40:31.920
video games

0:40:28.720,0:40:33.119
um as long as it doesn’t affect the

0:40:31.920,0:40:35.359
teenager too

0:40:33.119,0:40:36.400
much or any of the kid or anyone who’s

0:40:35.359,0:40:39.040
playing it

0:40:36.400,0:40:40.720
um but i do think that some video games

0:40:39.040,0:40:43.280
shouldn’t really be played by

0:40:40.720,0:40:44.880
um young ages there definitely are other

0:40:43.280,0:40:46.160
games that shouldn’t be played by the

0:40:44.880,0:40:48.640
younger people

0:40:46.160,0:40:49.680
um but sometimes those kind of violent

0:40:48.640,0:40:52.319
video games

0:40:49.680,0:40:53.440
are kind of useful for kids because like

0:40:52.319,0:40:55.760
like i said before

0:40:53.440,0:40:57.920
people need to vent sometimes and

0:40:55.760,0:41:00.640
playing video games was a way that i com

0:40:57.920,0:41:02.480
some more invented because we would play

0:41:00.640,0:41:06.480
call of duty together after

0:41:02.480,0:41:08.880
um i had end after um

0:41:06.480,0:41:10.240
after i had a bad day and we’d play it

0:41:08.880,0:41:12.880
and we’d have fun

0:41:10.240,0:41:13.760
and it was and although it was somewhat

0:41:12.880,0:41:16.960
of a

0:41:13.760,0:41:17.920
violent game um it definitely helped me

0:41:16.960,0:41:20.640
vent a bit

0:41:17.920,0:41:22.800
and um it helped me and i didn’t have

0:41:20.640,0:41:26.079
any negative effects from it so

0:41:22.800,0:41:28.400
okay i’d say some of the times it’s good

0:41:26.079,0:41:30.480
do you think people’s political views

0:41:28.400,0:41:33.680
change over their lifetime

0:41:30.480,0:41:35.200
well it could um they can start out

0:41:33.680,0:41:37.520
believing in one thing

0:41:35.200,0:41:38.960
and then at some point start believing

0:41:37.520,0:41:42.079
in something else

0:41:38.960,0:41:48.640
um people’s perspectives can change but

0:41:42.079,0:41:51.839
sometimes people are very um are

0:41:48.640,0:41:53.920
very prone on their opinion they will

0:41:51.839,0:41:54.640
not change it even if you try to make

0:41:53.920,0:41:56.880
them

0:41:54.640,0:41:58.400
but like we’ve said before change

0:41:56.880,0:42:01.040
happens and people can

0:41:58.400,0:42:03.359
change so i’d say that people’s

0:42:01.040,0:42:06.319
political views could change over time

0:42:03.359,0:42:09.280
okay do you think too much money is

0:42:06.319,0:42:09.700
spent on political campaigns

0:42:09.280,0:42:12.800
um

0:42:09.700,0:42:15.280
[Music]

0:42:12.800,0:42:16.079
i’m not entirely sure i mean i mean

0:42:15.280,0:42:18.319
you’re looking at

0:42:16.079,0:42:21.359
it presidential campaigns where hundreds

0:42:18.319,0:42:22.800
of millions of dollars are spent

0:42:21.359,0:42:24.720
um could you give me an example of a

0:42:22.800,0:42:27.599
campaign quickly well

0:42:24.720,0:42:28.880
right now you’ve got biden and trump you

0:42:27.599,0:42:30.720
know biden trump has

0:42:28.880,0:42:32.720
probably spent over a hundred million

0:42:30.720,0:42:34.560
dollars by this point in time on

0:42:32.720,0:42:37.599
advertising and

0:42:34.560,0:42:40.560
tv ads and spots like that

0:42:37.599,0:42:42.480
you know is is that a worthwhile

0:42:40.560,0:42:42.880
expenditure of that money or can that

0:42:42.480,0:42:44.720
money

0:42:42.880,0:42:46.319
should that money be used someplace more

0:42:44.720,0:42:48.079
constructively

0:42:46.319,0:42:50.560
probably more constructively because

0:42:48.079,0:42:53.760
i’ve seen a lot of the advertisements

0:42:50.560,0:42:56.160
somewhat bashing on other people and i

0:42:53.760,0:42:58.079
don’t normally like seeing them because

0:42:56.160,0:43:00.400
it just brings more hate into the world

0:42:58.079,0:43:01.920
and i’m not exactly and i’m pretty sure

0:43:00.400,0:43:02.720
a lot of people don’t really want to see

0:43:01.920,0:43:04.800
that

0:43:02.720,0:43:06.160
um so i don’t think it’s money well

0:43:04.800,0:43:08.160
spent i mean

0:43:06.160,0:43:09.520
explaining that they are somewhat of a

0:43:08.160,0:43:12.000
good candidate

0:43:09.520,0:43:12.800
i’d say that would be a little better

0:43:12.000,0:43:16.000
but not

0:43:12.800,0:43:17.520
as intense not as money spent on

0:43:16.000,0:43:20.640
negative advertising then

0:43:17.520,0:43:22.079
yeah okay what do you think of our

0:43:20.640,0:43:24.079
country’s politicians

0:43:22.079,0:43:25.599
do you trust them do you like them do

0:43:24.079,0:43:26.800
you think they have our best interests

0:43:25.599,0:43:30.800
in mind

0:43:26.800,0:43:33.920
uh it’s complicated

0:43:30.800,0:43:35.599
um a lot of things i’ve been go have

0:43:33.920,0:43:38.960
been going around in the news

0:43:35.599,0:43:40.000
and um it’s been shown that a lot of the

0:43:38.960,0:43:43.119
politicians we have

0:43:40.000,0:43:45.920
right now are kind of toxic

0:43:43.119,0:43:48.160
and not exactly the best candidates we

0:43:45.920,0:43:52.839
could have hoped for

0:43:48.160,0:43:56.160
and um yeah i’m having a little bit of

0:43:52.839,0:43:56.720
um problem i am i’m having a little bit

0:43:56.160,0:43:59.760
of

0:43:56.720,0:44:03.200
um issues trusting some of the people

0:43:59.760,0:44:06.880
um in the office so

0:44:03.200,0:44:09.200
i’d say um yeah

0:44:06.880,0:44:12.880
okay i don’t really trust him would you

0:44:09.200,0:44:12.880
like to be a politician someday

0:44:13.440,0:44:18.480
since we already have you running for

0:44:14.640,0:44:18.480
president uh

0:44:19.160,0:44:25.119
probably not

0:44:22.400,0:44:26.319
because like although you could get

0:44:25.119,0:44:29.520
people to

0:44:26.319,0:44:31.200
um to like support you

0:44:29.520,0:44:32.880
there also are always going to be the

0:44:31.200,0:44:33.920
people who will disagree with your

0:44:32.880,0:44:35.760
opinions

0:44:33.920,0:44:38.000
not everyone’s the same and those people

0:44:35.760,0:44:40.480
can be reluctant with their opinions

0:44:38.000,0:44:41.839
um and especially if you were running

0:44:40.480,0:44:43.520
for president like

0:44:41.839,0:44:45.599
all the attention’s on you and if you

0:44:43.520,0:44:47.920
mess up one time that could like

0:44:45.599,0:44:50.160
mess up your entire career also i don’t

0:44:47.920,0:44:52.160
feel like lying a bunch of times

0:44:50.160,0:44:54.480
so okay i’m pretty sure i don’t really

0:44:52.160,0:44:57.280
want to be a politician i’m not very

0:44:54.480,0:44:59.119
um so then that leads us into the next

0:44:57.280,0:45:00.960
question which is

0:44:59.119,0:45:03.839
what do you think are the qualities of a

0:45:00.960,0:45:07.520
good political leader

0:45:03.839,0:45:10.560
i’d say someone who is

0:45:07.520,0:45:13.440
trying to support causes

0:45:10.560,0:45:14.319
and trying to help the causes and also

0:45:13.440,0:45:17.680
people who

0:45:14.319,0:45:19.520
only and also for the people who

0:45:17.680,0:45:20.960
are trying to make the world a better

0:45:19.520,0:45:24.240
place and

0:45:20.960,0:45:25.760
are doing are trying to do it and listen

0:45:24.240,0:45:28.160
to everyone’s opinions

0:45:25.760,0:45:29.520
and even if the pin if they don’t agree

0:45:28.160,0:45:33.040
with the opinions they at least

0:45:29.520,0:45:36.079
listen to them and try to adjust

0:45:33.040,0:45:39.280
their um adjust

0:45:36.079,0:45:41.440
themselves to help them okay

0:45:39.280,0:45:43.760
if you were president and had to have

0:45:41.440,0:45:46.800
three people to assist you

0:45:43.760,0:45:50.079
who would you pick and why uh do they

0:45:46.800,0:45:54.079
have to be real-world people

0:45:50.079,0:45:54.079
theoretically anybody you want to pick

0:45:55.040,0:45:59.680
uh i’d say um

0:45:59.760,0:46:03.760
someone who um

0:46:05.750,0:46:10.880
[Music]

0:46:08.400,0:46:10.880
let’s see

0:46:12.880,0:46:16.000
i don’t exactly know who i’d get to

0:46:14.560,0:46:20.560
assist me i don’t know

0:46:16.000,0:46:25.200
who would you turn to for advice uh

0:46:20.560,0:46:29.040
um i don’t know a lot of people

0:46:25.200,0:46:30.640
okay so theoretically past present

0:46:29.040,0:46:32.480
live or dead doesn’t matter who would

0:46:30.640,0:46:35.200
you oh who would you look

0:46:32.480,0:46:36.560
to to draw inspiration from let’s look

0:46:35.200,0:46:40.319
at it from that perspective

0:46:36.560,0:46:43.040
okay um i probably want to go for

0:46:40.319,0:46:44.880
someone like abraham lincoln um george

0:46:43.040,0:46:49.119
washington

0:46:44.880,0:46:51.119
uh and who else i don’t know who else

0:46:49.119,0:46:52.560
i’m thinking about other presidents that

0:46:51.119,0:46:55.599
have supported

0:46:52.560,0:46:56.880
oh yeah john f kennedy okay that that

0:46:55.599,0:46:58.800
was easy wasn’t it

0:46:56.880,0:47:00.720
yeah because you can certainly draw on

0:46:58.800,0:47:03.760
their writings and their speeches and

0:47:00.720,0:47:07.200
stuff like that for inspiration

0:47:03.760,0:47:08.800
question 17 if you could change anything

0:47:07.200,0:47:09.440
in the world what three things would

0:47:08.800,0:47:12.560
they be

0:47:09.440,0:47:15.280
and why uh

0:47:12.560,0:47:17.119
if i could change three things i’d give

0:47:15.280,0:47:20.240
people of minorities

0:47:17.119,0:47:22.240
their rights that they deserve

0:47:20.240,0:47:24.160
i’ve said this before i’d want to give

0:47:22.240,0:47:26.160
them the rights because they deserve

0:47:24.160,0:47:27.599
they’re humans they deserve the same

0:47:26.160,0:47:30.480
rights

0:47:27.599,0:47:31.920
um another thing i try to change i’d

0:47:30.480,0:47:35.520
want to make it

0:47:31.920,0:47:37.520
um safer for people going through um

0:47:35.520,0:47:39.119
stuff like this i’d want to make sure

0:47:37.520,0:47:42.400
that they had um

0:47:39.119,0:47:47.280
for people who are who did have uh

0:47:42.400,0:47:49.760
the who did have um the uh

0:47:47.280,0:47:50.400
disease i’d want them to have some good

0:47:49.760,0:47:54.160
health care

0:47:50.400,0:47:57.440
coverage and i’d also want um

0:47:54.160,0:47:59.280
i’d also want to change the world so

0:47:57.440,0:48:03.119
that it would be a safer place

0:47:59.280,0:48:03.119
for what’s going on now okay

0:48:03.440,0:48:07.839
if you could make one rule that everyone

0:48:06.000,0:48:10.079
in the world had to follow what would it

0:48:07.839,0:48:12.640
be

0:48:10.079,0:48:13.280
one rule that everyone had to follow one

0:48:12.640,0:48:18.720
rule

0:48:13.280,0:48:18.720
to rule them all i’d say

0:48:19.119,0:48:24.000
don’t discriminate um discriminating

0:48:22.240,0:48:25.920
against people is horrible

0:48:24.000,0:48:28.319
whether it be for the race religion

0:48:25.920,0:48:30.160
gender sexuality that kind of thing

0:48:28.319,0:48:32.319
i don’t think it’s right and it never

0:48:30.160,0:48:34.400
should be right all right i think that’s

0:48:32.319,0:48:36.880
very noble

0:48:34.400,0:48:39.040
when you get older which is just a few

0:48:36.880,0:48:42.079
years away now

0:48:39.040,0:48:48.559
do you think you’d vote as a republican

0:48:42.079,0:48:51.680
a democrat or an independent

0:48:48.559,0:48:53.760
total disclosure mommy is a democrat

0:48:51.680,0:48:56.400
and daddy is an independent actually i’m

0:48:53.760,0:49:00.160
undeclared but

0:48:56.400,0:49:03.599
independent is close uh

0:49:00.160,0:49:06.640
i’d probably want to be an independent

0:49:03.599,0:49:07.599
um because depending on the person

0:49:06.640,0:49:11.200
representing

0:49:07.599,0:49:14.240
um the parties um i’d want to see

0:49:11.200,0:49:19.359
like their whole thing because

0:49:14.240,0:49:22.559
not all um of one party are bad or good

0:49:19.359,0:49:26.079
um so i’d probably want to be more

0:49:22.559,0:49:28.319
or less independent i don’t really um

0:49:26.079,0:49:29.200
choose sides unless it’s the person

0:49:28.319,0:49:32.400
themselves

0:49:29.200,0:49:34.319
okay and question 20 the last one for

0:49:32.400,0:49:37.040
our political questions

0:49:34.319,0:49:38.880
what are the three most important issues

0:49:37.040,0:49:40.880
that you think our politicians should be

0:49:38.880,0:49:45.200
addressing today

0:49:40.880,0:49:47.040
um they hate um

0:49:45.200,0:49:49.119
black lives matter that’s definitely one

0:49:47.040,0:49:52.559
of the major ones because

0:49:49.119,0:49:55.839
so far there’s been a lot of riots

0:49:52.559,0:49:58.559
um and protests and

0:49:55.839,0:49:58.960
hate going around in that and i think

0:49:58.559,0:50:02.000
that

0:49:58.960,0:50:04.319
politicians should be addressing it um

0:50:02.000,0:50:05.680
as well as the coronavirus of course we

0:50:04.319,0:50:09.040
still need to address

0:50:05.680,0:50:12.079
um that the pandemic going on so

0:50:09.040,0:50:15.119
um we have to address that

0:50:12.079,0:50:17.440
and also the rights of all minorities

0:50:15.119,0:50:20.400
like the lgbtq community

0:50:17.440,0:50:21.280
um all religions and races that kind of

0:50:20.400,0:50:24.079
thing so

0:50:21.280,0:50:24.640
okay that’s all for this segment we’ll

0:50:24.079,0:50:27.839
be

0:51:35.440,0:51:38.720
we are back with our latest question and

0:51:38.240,0:51:41.280
answer

0:51:38.720,0:51:42.640
series here uh we’re pushing up against

0:51:41.280,0:51:44.160
the clock here so i’m not going to get

0:51:42.640,0:51:45.520
through all the questions in our

0:51:44.160,0:51:45.920
miscellaneous section but i’m going to

0:51:45.520,0:51:48.720
pick

0:51:45.920,0:51:49.359
five at random and throw them at you

0:51:48.720,0:51:52.480
we’ll answer

0:51:49.359,0:51:53.200
as quickly as we can ready yep what do

0:51:52.480,0:51:57.280
you wish

0:51:53.200,0:52:00.880
you were more motivated to do um

0:51:57.280,0:52:02.000
probably would be to express even more

0:52:00.880,0:52:05.359
of my creative

0:52:02.000,0:52:07.599
um outlook i do express it um

0:52:05.359,0:52:09.440
good enough now but the fact that i’m

0:52:07.599,0:52:09.920
kind of lazy and procrastinate a bit on

0:52:09.440,0:52:12.400
it

0:52:09.920,0:52:14.000
um i’d probably want to be more

0:52:12.400,0:52:15.760
motivated to do that

0:52:14.000,0:52:18.160
rather than just sit in my room and

0:52:15.760,0:52:21.119
watch videos all day okay

0:52:18.160,0:52:22.880
if you were to bury a time capsule today

0:52:21.119,0:52:24.720
what would you put in it give me three

0:52:22.880,0:52:27.040
things you’d put in a time capsule

0:52:24.720,0:52:29.040
uh i’d probably want to give an example

0:52:27.040,0:52:32.240
of the technology we have

0:52:29.040,0:52:35.760
i’d also want to um put in

0:52:32.240,0:52:38.000
um something naturey and then

0:52:35.760,0:52:39.760
a little note um describing what the

0:52:38.000,0:52:44.160
year has been like so

0:52:39.760,0:52:46.079
okay i like it uh what is something

0:52:44.160,0:52:47.599
that you think kids understand but

0:52:46.079,0:52:50.640
adults don’t

0:52:47.599,0:52:51.599
um something kids understand that adults

0:52:50.640,0:52:55.839
don’t

0:52:51.599,0:52:55.839
i’d say that would be um

0:52:56.640,0:53:02.800
oh okay

0:53:00.880,0:53:05.839
something kids understand that adults

0:53:02.800,0:53:05.839
don’t um

0:53:09.040,0:53:14.559
uh huh we’re answering these quickly but

0:53:11.599,0:53:15.359
i’m trying i’m trying i’m drawing a

0:53:14.559,0:53:16.960
plank

0:53:15.359,0:53:18.400
all right we’ll skip that question we’ll

0:53:16.960,0:53:22.319
we’ll do that one later

0:53:18.400,0:53:25.040
let me ask you the next next question uh

0:53:22.319,0:53:26.319
where do i have it if you could learn

0:53:25.040,0:53:28.400
the answer

0:53:26.319,0:53:29.920
to one question about your future what

0:53:28.400,0:53:32.240
would it be

0:53:29.920,0:53:32.240
uh

0:53:34.720,0:53:44.640
uh what’s my job okay yeah interesting

0:53:39.680,0:53:44.640
uh that’s four so the last question

0:53:44.800,0:53:48.400
let’s see let’s see let’s see

0:53:49.200,0:53:54.319
if you could give every person in the

0:53:51.760,0:53:57.520
world a gift what would it be

0:53:54.319,0:54:01.599
um just one thing one thing

0:53:57.520,0:54:01.599
um i’d give them

0:54:03.680,0:54:06.960
i’d give them

0:54:07.119,0:54:12.640
a hug i’d want to give them a hug

0:54:10.480,0:54:13.680
that’s cute because everyone needs to

0:54:12.640,0:54:15.359
know that they’re loved

0:54:13.680,0:54:16.800
everyone needs a hug all right we got a

0:54:15.359,0:54:19.200
couple minutes left let me get one or

0:54:16.800,0:54:22.839
two more questions in

0:54:19.200,0:54:26.160
how can you help someone today

0:54:22.839,0:54:29.520
um i can

0:54:26.160,0:54:29.920
show them that no matter what i accept

0:54:29.520,0:54:32.160
them

0:54:29.920,0:54:33.760
i care for them and that there are other

0:54:32.160,0:54:37.200
people that will care for them

0:54:33.760,0:54:40.559
okay do you think teens have an

0:54:37.200,0:54:44.079
easier or harder than my generation

0:54:40.559,0:54:46.960
um i’d say

0:54:44.079,0:54:49.040
somewhat it’s kind of the same because

0:54:46.960,0:54:52.240
we all have our own difficulties

0:54:49.040,0:54:53.119
um going through teenagers kind of have

0:54:52.240,0:54:57.040
like

0:54:53.119,0:55:00.640
mental mental issues responsibility

0:54:57.040,0:55:03.760
and manners and stuff um so

0:55:00.640,0:55:04.400
i’d say it would be um they are kind of

0:55:03.760,0:55:08.079
equal

0:55:04.400,0:55:08.480
okay every generation has a name these

0:55:08.079,0:55:11.760
days

0:55:08.480,0:55:13.520
or a moniker or label of some sort

0:55:11.760,0:55:15.119
what should the name of your generation

0:55:13.520,0:55:17.440
be

0:55:15.119,0:55:17.440
um

0:55:18.880,0:55:26.400
um like like gen x

0:55:23.280,0:55:28.000
millennials what do you think what word

0:55:26.400,0:55:30.960
what label or what name

0:55:28.000,0:55:32.640
epitomizes your generation i think my

0:55:30.960,0:55:35.040
generation was

0:55:32.640,0:55:36.400
gen z but what would you call it is what

0:55:35.040,0:55:38.640
i’m asking

0:55:36.400,0:55:38.640
um

0:55:39.680,0:55:45.839
uh probably just gen z i really don’t

0:55:43.839,0:55:47.359
have any other name for it yes gen z oh

0:55:45.839,0:55:49.280
that’s exciting

0:55:47.359,0:55:50.880
i’m sorry okay all right last question

0:55:49.280,0:55:54.079
if you could trade places with

0:55:50.880,0:55:57.280
anyone for a day who would it be

0:55:54.079,0:56:00.720
um i’d want to trade places with

0:55:57.280,0:56:02.559
um you because i want to see like

0:56:00.720,0:56:05.359
what you’re going through and understand

0:56:02.559,0:56:08.880
when it’s not that exciting trust me

0:56:05.359,0:56:10.319
yeah it’d be a pretty boring day true

0:56:08.880,0:56:12.559
all right i think that’s it i think we

0:56:10.319,0:56:15.280
got sort of the gist of of what these

0:56:12.559,0:56:16.079
questions we’re going for here uh we’ll

0:56:15.280,0:56:18.000
