The full crew is back to talk about hiding out, the North Texas Gas Crisis, hushpuppies, Comanches and much more. Right off the bat they start off with Long John Silvers, hushpuppies and catfish restaurant talk (again). But that doesn’t last long as Heavy attacks Gus and tries to blame him for the North Texas Gas Crisis of 2017. Blame may be a strong word, but Heavy does believe Gus had a hand in it. Heavy also recounts Gus and the global rice shortage many years ago.
Gus once again stresses that everyone should have at least 72 hours worth of food and water on hand for an emergency situation. That leads to a twitter question from Tell wondering what the boys would recommend to have with them if they had to go into hiding in West Texas. Surprisingly enough, they don’t give a straight answer and they ultimately leave out a lot things.
Gus recalls alt-country/Americana singer/songwriter Kevin Welch’s song “Wilson’s Tracks”and from there Heavy talks about how he was a house guest in the Seattle area once upon a time. That leads to a discussion about natural resources availability and the effect that scarcity had on whether or not Native American tribes established more stable settlements which led to increased population densities. That leads to Gus mentioning the Japanese explorer/Zunni language hypothesis which will need to be further investigated.
Ty has been reading “The Empire of the Sun and the Moon” about the Comanche nation and that leads to a lot of discussion about Comanche raiding parties during the 1700’s and 1800’s.
Heavy talks about the response to Hurricane Harvey and ties back to the Eastern Bloc with a story about his friend’s Hungarian wife and her baked bean conundrum.
They finally get back to Tell’s question but they get hung up on the “Two is One, One is None” redundant equipment philosophy.
