Josh Wilson:

Today we're taking advice giving advice and talking about the passing of the worst source of advice in the world...planet.

Amanda Wilson:

Let's go.

Josh Wilson:

This is Super Familiar with the Wilsons. I'm Josh.

Amanda Wilson:

I'm Amanda

Josh Wilson:

and we are a chat show that was born out of the need to connect during a global upheaval. No big deal.

Amanda Wilson:

Yeah, you know,

Josh Wilson:

As you do. So I will start our podcast with the ceremonial lighting of the incense. Now there are some of you who may say, Josh, why do you light incense? I'm saying that we are creating a calm atmosphere for everyone to experience because if we're calm, you're calm.

Amanda Wilson:

...until the smoke blows into one of our faces and we have a coughing fit and then no one is calm.

Josh Wilson:

I edit that stuff out though. We want to take a moment here to say goodbye to Yahoo Answers but before we do that, I do want to reflect a little bit about the passing of Prince Philip. Now there's were two notable passings this week. The passing of DMX happened at the age of 50, by the way, which is a significant number for us more on that later. But also Prince Philip now passed away at the age of 99. Now think what you will about Prince Philip and his government and their policies. It did cause me a moment of reflection, and I'll tell you why. It's not because I was any great fan because I wasn't. But I grew up partially on Grand Cayman Island in the British West Indies. Now again, a colony of Britain and we can get into the whole colonizer discussion, but I was like five or six or whatever I was, I didn't know from that. I lived on Grand Cayman. And you may be familiar with Grand Cayman, because it is a tax haven for the Uber rich now not so in the 70s not why you were there. Definitely not when I was there. When I was there, no one knew about it. My dad had decided he wanted to retire. And he wanted to move down there. So we went down there and my recollection is a little fuzzy. I thought that he owned a restaurant and a lounge. But I was also very young and it may be that he didn't own it and may just be that he went there a lot.

Amanda Wilson:

The story that you have told me is that your dad moved to Grand Cayman to open a bar but now we're deciding that maybe he just spent a lot of time at the bar.

Josh Wilson:

Well, I was wandering around in the perpetual haze of childhood. So I don't know-I'm just thinking about this as I was preparing this bit of reflection- and maybe...maybe he just went there a lot. So it brought back a lot of memories going barefoot everywhere. The smell and the feel of the ocean on the air we lived on the beach, which by the way, I really wish we still own that house. We would be Ga-jillionaires. Driving up to Seven Mile Beach - now Seven Mile Beach is the famous white sand beach that now you can't see it from the road because it is blocked by resort after resort after resort, then - you could just drive up to it. And so we would go to the beach. It was I had a near drowning experience. So that was fun. But we would go to the beach and I distinctly remember that as we were walking back to the car, we would grab beer bottles out of the trash cans, fill them up with water and then rinse our feet before we got into the ditch whatever man I was a kid

Amanda Wilson:

someone taught you to do this

Josh Wilson:

first of all, I was not fishing beer cans or beer bottles out of the bin that was someone else doing them leaving the beach and driving to Dellworths Esso Station. DO you know what Esso is? It's a brand of gas station... so - so driving to Dellworth's Esso station my dad would buy a Heineken - or as they call them - greenies. And he would give me the first sip off the top By the way, I looked up Dellworth's Esso station is still they're still in Grand Cayman and

Amanda Wilson:

still selling Heineken assuming

Josh Wilson:

I'm guessing so I remember going to school there went to school at Cayman prep school, which the uniform was blue checkered button down shirts and and khakis, khaki shorts or khaki pants I remember they used to celebrate and probably still do pirates week. Pirates week was a big thing. Everyone dressed up like pirates at the school and, and went around because you know,

Amanda Wilson:

I taught with someone recently who taught in Cayman.

Josh Wilson:

No you didn't. It doesn't mean don't say their name. We don't have permission. I remember the nights being dead dark. Like it was dark. I mean, it was dark dark when it got super late.

Amanda Wilson:

Did you have a hard time sleeping?

Josh Wilson:

I don't remember doing that. I remember going into people's extended family barbecue. I didn't call them barbecues. I suppose that's a distinctly American thing, but they're their cookout, whatever. And having rice and peas and oxtail stew. I remember Miss Elma Ebanks who taught me how t read and how to read a clock. O , that's a that's a that's a v ry warm memory. Of course. Eban s is one of the two or three ver common names on the isl nds. A lot of folks are nam d e banks. We squat on the boa a lot with Crosby banks. And there's this wonderful pic ure of me in the inside a boa , not on the deck but but und rneath and wearing this ama ing giant polka dot shirt and plaid. I call it couch plaid pan s. I know exactly what you mea , where this is going to me is, as I said, it's the British Wes Indies. It's, I guess, a cro n colony of Britain. And eve y night we would, there was no V, we did not have TV. And tha was a source of contention

Amanda Wilson:

for TV was invented. You need to

Josh Wilson:

go sit somewhere in a corner right now. No, stop. But we didn't have TV there. We would listen to the radio or we would listen to records from my dad's record player. But he had the weirdest collection. The only thing I remember was the that I listened to over and over again as a soundtrack of Oklahoma, weirdly. But when I wasn't doing that, I was listening to BBC Radio on the island and so have broadcasts from Britain. I think that this is where my tendency to be an Anglophile came from, I used

Amanda Wilson:

this for your formative years,

Josh Wilson:

listen to BBC World News, listen to this radio play called the Clitheroe kid, which is like this kid and his his buddy getting adventures and, and I loved it. And recently, I found the audio files from that and I was listening to it still funny. And the other memory I have, by the way is later we moved to Miami and then Miss Alma and her son came up to visit us and it happened to be during the wedding of Diana Au Prince Charles and and I seem to remember is in at an odd time for Selma and her son, like got up and watch. Oh,

Amanda Wilson:

you mean an odd time of day? Okay. Yeah, well, sure, because it's a morning wedding. And they're ahead of us. So yeah, it would have been early super early.

Josh Wilson:

So all the events of this week that we've been talking about kind of led me to think about my past a little bit and and it was fun. It was fun to write down those remembrances.

Amanda Wilson:

And it's, it's good to reflect. And I think that you might be a little bit more reflective right now because it is going to be it's a big week for you.

Josh Wilson:

It is a big week is a monumental week, I'm about to have one of those birthdays that ends with a zero.

Amanda Wilson:

Yes, I when I turned 30, I celebrated my 2010. So you're celebrating 2030. That's my 20/30 birthday.

Josh Wilson:

So one of the things that we did last week is we kicked off a new segment that we're going to be doing regularly, and we want you to give us advice, tell us what to do. And so we asked you for birthday advice. And this idea of gathering advice and getting advice is really interesting that we decided to start this week, because this is the week that we say goodbye to Yahoo Answers. Amanda, do you know what Yahoo Answers is?

Amanda Wilson:

I mean, I'm aware of yahoo answers, mostly because of the bam, bam. But also do we think that Yahoo heard that we were becoming an advice space, and they were a little bit like we're gonna have the edge on this market now. And so they might as well go ahead and fold.

Josh Wilson:

Yeah, absolutely. Tiny, tiny little podcast that frankly, we don't even do right now we get into all the ways that we don't podcast correctly later. Maybe we'll ask advice about that. How do we podcast correctly?

Amanda Wilson:

That's right. What should we do better?

Josh Wilson:

yahoo answers, according to the internet is an American community driven Question and Answer site or knowledge market, which I'd never heard

Amanda Wilson:

knowledge market

Josh Wilson:

from Yahoo that allows users to submit questions, answer questions to other users and upvote, both the questions and answers to increase their visibility. Now, that's kind of the official definition. Another definition I've heard is, it is the center of DME on the internet. I've heard that a cesspool. I've heard that conspiracy theory haven. I've heard that and add to all them, it's going away. Now. I will if you've never heard of yahoo answers, and it's going away soon, and in fact, not only is it going away, but they're not even going to archive the site like

Amanda Wilson:

you just can't, is it because people have given such poor advice? They're afraid they're going to be sued.

Josh Wilson:

There's lots of theories and one of them being it's being shut down to silence the voices of the people. Okay. For example,

Amanda Wilson:

PRC theories about Yes.

Josh Wilson:

Some people say that the Yahoo Answers is being shut down to silence conservatives, and for recommendations of other sites that post the truth quote, regarding the left's agenda, other people have asked whether the former president should buy Yahoo to prevent the shutdown. I don't think he can afford it, see that there's a lot of Hornets that are being added. I mean, these people

Amanda Wilson:

have read it, they can just go there.

Josh Wilson:

Well, it's very true. But I say that the only reason that Yahoo is shutting it down is not making money. Now, Yahoo has been getting rid of a bunch of other products too, because they quote, want to provide better quality content. Well, this is funny and it's quality comedy, but I don't know about quality content. So let me give you an example of some of the questions on Yahoo Answers. For example, is 20 still in the teens?

Amanda Wilson:

No,

Josh Wilson:

no, I don't need the answer. I know the answer.

Amanda Wilson:

Here's my question for you what so people don't give good. That's not even advice that what guesses yahoo answers. It's not advice. But is this like, now we're gonna have this whole long thread about whether or not it's in the 20s? Or do people just say no and move along?

Josh Wilson:

There were eight answers to that most of them saying Your mother must be so proud. Okay. What if I got the vaccine already, but I need it reversed.

Amanda Wilson:

No, that's not a thing. Not if it's like to me,

Josh Wilson:

what is it called when you're drinking beer while on the toilet?

Amanda Wilson:

word for that?

Josh Wilson:

I don't think there's a word for that. I think the idea is cutting out the middleman. That was one of the answers. That's funny. Here's one is four miles too long of a walk for a seven year old.

Amanda Wilson:

As someone who is, is had a seven year old and has one approaching seven, yes, yes, it is.

Josh Wilson:

Here's some more and we can end in this then this again tells you why this isn't what Yahoo refers to as quality content. How many calories are there in so

Amanda Wilson:

I just looked over your notes and saw that and none, but don't eat it?

Josh Wilson:

What if one day the cows fight back?

Amanda Wilson:

Best Friends?

Josh Wilson:

I actually like this one. This to me seems like a moral conundrum. How to get a haircut similar to Joseph Stalin without showing the girl who cuts my hair a picture of Joseph style.

Amanda Wilson:

Why do you want solid hair cut?

Josh Wilson:

Why are you afraid to show a picture of stolen unless you don't want them to think that? What a right? Yeah, here's one that's kind of sad. Can you imagine someone in tears writing this? I accidentally ate the do not eat packet inside my shoe box. Am I gonna die?

Amanda Wilson:

Oh my god. But this you accidentally eat that?

Josh Wilson:

Whoa. And why is like an internet forum the first place you go instead of calling 911? Like, are you just constantly hitting f5 to refresh the screen? What's going on? What's going on? And here's here's my last example. In the TV show friends, what was the point of Ross?

Amanda Wilson:

Oh, this is now I'm sad that this is going wait because I'm enjoying it.

Josh Wilson:

I think it's being shut down in May May 4 actually. And I think that that they are racing the site sometime in June. I'm sure that they've said when but I'm not looking at up yahoo answers. What are they shutting you down? And so that takes us into our new endeavor. Give us advice. Tell us one. Round Round.

Amanda Wilson:

So this week we have asked what is your best birthday advice? Since Josh is having a very big birthday and we're celebrating it. We wanted to know what your best birthday advice was. Josh what answers did we get?

Josh Wilson:

Nate from a scary Home Companion. No Nate and our friend Nate. I do know our friend Nate. Great podcast that you should listen to a scary Home Companion. He said Carrie. I always treat my birthday like any other day, any well wishes, gifts, cards, etc. that I receive are unexpected and very much appreciated. And I don't spend the day anticipating anything, so just enjoy it.

Amanda Wilson:

That's really good advice. That is not how I do my birthday.

Josh Wilson:

No, you'd be so pissed. I hope

Amanda Wilson:

I have a birthday week. We celebrate my birthday all week long. I expect lots of events during the week. Nate I think that I need to come to you for more advice on how to not be so focused on myself.

Josh Wilson:

So here's the thing for someone who runs a horror podcast yes By the way, just really creepy and really dark. I mean he seems like just such a well rounded

Amanda Wilson:

Cory gentle man.

Josh Wilson:

Buddha like figure. Other advice lokendra lokendra garrison from from I just want to talk podcast says my birthday advice is to accept all the love and feel all the feels and that's very sweetly Kendra. Lovely Kendra. So if I wake up and my back hurts, you're gonna feel my toes hurt. My toes are starting to hurt my toes. Never heard before my toes hurt now toes aren't supposed to hurt your toes

Amanda Wilson:

know that you're hurting.

Josh Wilson:

My god. Oh, I can't believe you said that. I just had a birthday that ends with 00

Amanda Wilson:

Well, I said 20 plus 3030 sure that people can do that what

Josh Wilson:

Scott from budget arcade podcast says to me he says you're only as old as you feel. If you allow the number to define you then you're losing out on life. This is spoken by a very young person.

Amanda Wilson:

He is young and also his toes don't hurt

Josh Wilson:

not yet. And then Ashley from the offbeat mom cast says Be sure to do something that fills your cup. Like if you're extroverted do the extroverted thing. No, but if you're an introverted and would would feel best having alone time honor that. Dear, I would like for you to honor the fact that I want some alone time because I am an extreme introvert,

Amanda Wilson:

you may have it.

Josh Wilson:

And so of course when I'm looking for advice what to do with my life, I go to the internet. And so here are some things to do on my birthday. And we can see if we can fit all these in go to the beach. go hiking, go mountain climbing while we're flaming

Amanda Wilson:

while hiking at the beach.

Josh Wilson:

No, but we're in Florida. That's not gonna happen. I

Amanda Wilson:

will build you a tall sandcastle.

Josh Wilson:

Thank you. camping or glamping probably not going to glamp

Amanda Wilson:

I am not camping at the beach,

Josh Wilson:

go to a theme park.

Amanda Wilson:

Not doing it

Josh Wilson:

go to a waterpark travel. And then lastly, oddly, along with that whole line, bowling.

Amanda Wilson:

I will travel. I do not want to go bowling. Alright, well, we appreciate the advice. We have a new question for the world before we get into my favorite segment, which is game time. So our new question or give us advice question for this coming up week. And we will talk about your answers and shout you out on our next podcast. Here's my question. How do I not spend my entire paycheck at the grocery store each week? But for real? I do the digital coupons. I don't print out coupons to people to paper coupons anymore. It was a very big deal when you would get the paper you would cut them I think he would lose them.

Josh Wilson:

The people who do do that are the same people who write checks at the grocery store. Which by the way, my favorite thing?

Amanda Wilson:

Yes, inevitably you get stuck in that line. So how do you do it? Do you meal plan? Do you meal prep? Do you subscribe to a box service, I was trying to find a good box service. We've done hellofresh before it was nice. But also we're trying to be keto. And so I'm having a hard time finding a keto box. Please let us know how we can save money. By being more mindful about our grocery shopping. This is my question. It's not a funny question. It's a real question. All of my money. If I look at my bank account every other day, a significant portion of money is going to the grocery store. It's a birthday game kind of a game. It's I mean, it's not it's no BuzzFeed quiz. Let's be real, but it is how much do you know about the day that you were born?

Josh Wilson:

Okay,

Amanda Wilson:

your birthday. We won't say what year you were born. Although people can do the math now. Because I've given them the math to do. It's great

Josh Wilson:

if people did not come to this podcast for math homework.

Amanda Wilson:

What day was your birthday? Like what day of the week was your Saturday? If you had your 1971 calendar? When is the next time that you could reuse that calendar where that all of the days in 1971 and this other year are exactly the same the date and the day combinations match?

Josh Wilson:

See I've got you there because I'm smart. I can use it the very next year and just scratch out the numbers and put them in new boxes.

Amanda Wilson:

No, the next time you can reuse the 1971 calendar is 2021. Oh no way this year is exactly the same as 1971.

Josh Wilson:

Well, I can break out my 1971 calendar all of the

Amanda Wilson:

days and the dates are exactly the same. How many days until your next birthday? What? So Trick question there is, you know, I know they're six days. So there's this site called my birthday dot ninja. And this is what this is what we're using is my birthday ninja. And so it's saying to me that it's doing the math for you. There have been 18,257 days from the day you were born up till today. Math. I think it's 18,263 Okay, can

Josh Wilson:

I just back you write the hell up right now? Yes. I did not know that this fun game time would be nothing but math

Amanda Wilson:

is math. No, no, no, no, no, it was

Josh Wilson:

like famous thing we're

Amanda Wilson:

gonna get there. Okay, this is my birthday ninja informed me at the beginning of this is web page. This would be about a 10 minute read.

Josh Wilson:

No, we're not doing

Amanda Wilson:

I'm not reading all of it to you. I'm just letting you know that it let me know up front. All right. How if you have been sleeping eight hours daily since

Josh Wilson:

your birth, oh my god. I'd like to be asleep right now.

Amanda Wilson:

Slept a total of 16 point 66 years.

Josh Wilson:

Okay, that's marvelous.

Amanda Wilson:

It's also not true because children, these people do you know there were 618 full moons after you're born up in Till now. And the next full moon is on April 27. Okay, I'm moving along and moving along. Which celebrity? I have a favorite celebrity. Do you know any celebrities that share your birthday? There's a whole long list. And I don't know any of them except for one and it is my favorite.

Josh Wilson:

Your favorite?

Amanda Wilson:

Yeah. My favorite of the birth of the celebrities on this list, because it's the only one I know.

Josh Wilson:

Rowdy Roddy Piper. Yes. How

Amanda Wilson:

do you know you look that junk up just now you're such a cheater. I was so excited. I don't know any of these other people on this list.

Josh Wilson:

You know that? Roddy Piper because I actually listen. Listen me in the WWF go way back when?

Amanda Wilson:

I was gonna say you probably watched him on Monday night. nitre.

Josh Wilson:

No, no. Like, that was like,

Amanda Wilson:

Okay, yeah,

Josh Wilson:

that I was just before all that nonsense. You know, he was Canadian. I did know that the accent and all that. Well, first of all, he didn't he stopped having an accent somewhere. I mean, that whole thing was just that was his shtick.

Amanda Wilson:

Do you know any famous events that happened on your birthday in history?

Josh Wilson:

The year before? 1970 I believe that the Beatles announced that they were breaking up. Oh, my birthday.

Amanda Wilson:

Oh, that is sad. That is actually not in this list. You know what is in this list, though? In 1521, the trial of Martin Luther began

Josh Wilson:

what was he on trial for?

Amanda Wilson:

I'm bad here is something real inside Joe's teachings, his teachings. But it the assembly of the Diet of Worms. I don't even understand any of these words. I understand assembly.

Josh Wilson:

You know, I've heard of keto Diet of Worms you never heard of.

Amanda Wilson:

Alright. Are you into numerology?

Josh Wilson:

Is this more math? Because no.

Amanda Wilson:

So your birthday numbers? Oh my god do that your life path number is three. Okay, know what this means about you?

Josh Wilson:

I don't know at least it's a small number,

Amanda Wilson:

right? It represents vision, imagination and joy of living. You possess a great talent for creativity and self expression. I believe that those things are true.

Josh Wilson:

Why didn't you tell me that that that Posh Spice was born three years after me on my birthday?

Amanda Wilson:

Because birthday ninja did not tell me that Victoria Beckham was born on your birthday? Yep. Um, so here are some celebrities. It was

Josh Wilson:

Jennifer Garner. Okay, can we go back to this or we're going to talk about numbers some more.

Amanda Wilson:

No, I'm telling you here is a celebrity that has the same life path as you Zoe Kravitz. She's cool.

Josh Wilson:

Okay, what does this mean life path?

Amanda Wilson:

Well, this was that noise

Josh Wilson:

is the oldest or the oldest son that's in the house. His alarm is going off right now. Which by the way, we are recording in the morning, which we have, I don't think ever done. Recorded in the morning. We usually wait until the people go to bed. Yes.

Amanda Wilson:

But that is getting later and later. And so please, somebody turn his alarm off. So your life path is that you are creative. That's true. You're incredibly creative. And you have a great talent for self expression. I feel like you have a great time for self expression in your art.

Josh Wilson:

I do I it's another reason why we don't do podcasting. Right. I have word issues. I don't think that I'm incredibly well spoken. So you're a

Amanda Wilson:

great writer though. No, thank you take some time. All right, when it comes to love and relationship based on your birthday,

Josh Wilson:

Liz fair. Also Born on my birthday, okay,

Amanda Wilson:

the inner birthday ninja it knows none of those people. Birthday ninja knows people I've never heard of. Except for Roddy Roddy Piper. Okay, you are most compatible based on your life path number and your birthday with a person born on January 10 1997. I would like to talk to you about trading me and for younger model because 1997 is when I graduated from college,

Josh Wilson:

January 10 1997. You're

Amanda Wilson:

Josh Wilson:

Oh, hang on, hang on birthdays. Here we go. I know, this is really compelling listening, but it's just like we're opening gift together. Let's see. Well, according to the internet, no. celebrities were born January 10 1997. So I'm going to now go to Facebook

Amanda Wilson:

starts rolling for people. Which by the way, that person will be 24 years old. So legal, but still also. No, thank you. Let's just move past this, shall we? Your compatibility score with this person once you find them is plus 133. Now on the negative side, you are most incompatible. Not my birthday. I was very happy to find a mate when I was very happy to understand that that was not it. You were most incompatible with a person born on June 13 1953.

Josh Wilson:

Okay,

Amanda Wilson:

Amanda Wilson:

Josh Wilson:

that little jingle lets us know it's time for us to give our recommendations. So we asked you to tell us what to do now we're going to tell you what to do. So I have a wreck. Amanda you don't have a wreck for today.

Amanda Wilson:

I am wrecking birthday ninja birthday ninja.

Josh Wilson:

So my wreck is very simple and very meaningful. Last night, we decided to turn the TV off and go sit outside sit out front in the dark. I mean they were lights the house lights were on but but sit outside and and chat for a little bit. We took a little walk. My recommendation is to do that. Turn off the TV and go outside especially at night sit and just chat with your significant other with friends or with neighbors. One of the children came out one of the children came out for a little bit it was it was really lovely. And it reminded me of the time in 1992 when a little hurricane called Andrew roll through Miami. And there were there was a space and time of a few weeks where all we had to do was sit outside because there was no power. Yeah, there were some places in Miami that took months. So the infrastructure was was was trashed for a while and so we would just sit outside and the very humid Miami air and chat talk me and my friends would sit and smoke cigars and we would just shoot the breeze. And I was reminded of that last night I loved it. So do that. Especially if where you are is the weather is is is good. Now we had a rather massive rainstorm go by earlier but last night it was the weather was nice and cool. It was it was beautiful. And so now's the time of year to be doing that anyway. So go outside, chat with your loved ones. That's my recommendation.

Amanda Wilson:

Do it for Josh on his birthday.

Josh Wilson:

Pour out a glass alright that will do us for today. This has been super familiar with the Wilsons. All of the music that you are listening to right throughout this episode have been Wilson productions. The opening and closing are by me some of the music there is by Andrew Wilson that you hear and some of it is by Daniel Wilson. And so I'm very proud of the Wilson family. We're just we're just rockin and or rolling.

Amanda Wilson:

None of it was by me.
