Episode 8: The Eighth World Wonder

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

To be clear, we are ideally not the team to be selecting the eighth world wonder, but we're the team that did. I don't know if the world wonder commission calls us, or maybe we call them. All I know is that we chose the correct option.

I'm trying to play to our nowglobalaudience: Did you see Guifiery's frostitips, tabvvule, Atosa, she's,Great Guy Yary, as IO THOSE TEP TACK? I feary, I wis O S, Sogetan ty smansmetway: Italians, a skitty language CI me Na. I tell you listeners, keeplistening. Welcome to Ose your witer debate. PODCAST wor four long time, friends from college debate, everything from SupremeCourt justices to which back street ways the best. My name is Evan Agton,I'm joined by my lovely global historians, tall US Alma.He don't know a lot about history, but thanks for calling me Hitorian andEmily Laam Um, I o a little craft today, while we recorn. So you know I don'treveal at the end it's a audiomedium and were we were solucky toget her. Actually this was e last minute edition, but our specialguest Clare Milburn, is doing us, Claire, all think Yeus. So much forhaving me again, I'm feeling really hot, really fresh. After my almost win withan Arbusm in honor of our eighth episode of the PAECASS, we are going tobe debating what should become the new eighth wonder of the human made world.So for those of you who are not familiar, I I'm sure everyone's heard.The term seven wonders the world, but there's a couple different lists outthere there's the seven wonders of the ancient world which everyone's prettydown for these are the things you know and love like the Colossus of roads.But in two thousands there was a survey to decide what would become the newseven Oneo the world, and I didn't realize you could just kind of go inand and say what the new wonders are. It's run by a company called new sevenwonders. So it's just like shheads like us, Ou just decided we're going todecide what are the wonders of the world, so I think we have exactly asmuch qualification as they do decide what the at form is going to be so forcontaxt. The current new seven wonders of the world are the Great Pyramid ofGiza the Great Wall of China. Petra in Jordan, you might recognize that fromthe third Indiana Jones Mov, the coloseum of Rome Chichiniza in Mexico,Machu Pichu in Pavru, the Tagmahall and India and L Cristo de re Lendor ChriseRedeemer in Riodajianero, Bragioux spiwill spin on that one of all ofthese which one of these is sexi. We should include by CITERIAWOT so etitOret Antor for sure Cris Hesuson. How do his arms stay up? There O idea grew lall of China. I thottelest Sexi, I'm kind of bummed out by that one Iwas Li, big old cock block,just Slitaly, is keep out the hunts but keep in the buns all rightit's going tobe interesting, but each of us have come with our two picks for what couldbe the EGH wonder of the world. I think we should kick it off. I'mexcited to see what you all think is on the level of these beautiful H, worldnational heritage sites, e's nothing good with the way that weEG. No we're we're all dumbasses. This one might be disappointing. So, first, first up and once again thisis to match things like the Great Wall of China and the Great Pyramid of Giza.Things is great in the name. I need emily and Clare Up. First, it's theBolto statue in Central Park, New York City verses, the land of Oz, of defuncttheme park in Boon, North Carolina, guys, God lke you. As paring talk, I don't thinkyou got athing better Tom in our langage and roast them. I mine haven'tgone up. Yet that's true! That's true! He before you know an ours, R Yoall areidiots. I can't believe you did this. This is of all of our episodes. This one wechoose to be serious. This is. It is a very serious one, based on the meritsof these monument, the one that needs the most explanation, I think, shouldgo fir so clair. Can you tell us what the land of Oz is? Oh as if the bulltostatue and ther city Toit's Ie, this is a theme park that is open only in thefall on beach mountains in North Carolina, it's otherwise a ski resort.But it's literally this this area built Coewa to replicate the land of Oy. Ithas the yellow, brick road. It has the...

...characters. You know and I look toclarifyd this park did in fact almost go bankrupt at one point. No, I'mpretty sure T's. It's functionally closed. No, it closed officiallyinineteen eighty, but then it reopene N, nine, teen, N Ninety one on July.Fourth, and then now they host it every fall. Only you look for one month andyou can get tickets to go, see the land of ozs and people come from all overthe country. But I think this is this is the wonder of the world because itis still standing on a mountain. I think it's a magical place. I thinkit's a remarkable feat of construction and architecture, art, culture, music,tourism, nature and mountain, and you said you didn't do your reseurn, I so IV, I've be I've been to the landof I've been to actually both of these places, which is exciting. I I M, I'M Aworld traveler. The two places I'v believed are where these two things are. Theland of Oz was wonderful. I, as with Clare on that trip the way it goes as you rite up on anold, dilapidated school bus. It's interesting 'cause. It is on one hand adeeply abandoned, amusement park and, on the other hand, full of characteractors who really want to talk to you and has someone who is pretty sociallyawkward. That was just horrific to have someone in full metallic silver.Pikeface paint come up to you and say if I only had a brain and I'm likeAthey had fucking Social Tues. Please don't talk to me. Let's hear, let'shear about the Baltist at you, forso the Balto statue, half seen with my owneyes. It is astonishing. First of all, does anyone know the story of Balto inWivalta was elincredible. You have two sentences: Big Pandemic, no medicineDOG SAFED IN N nine teen, twenty five there as a big PAINTIMAC in Alaska, noone could get anywhere. So these dogs traveled six hundred and seventy fourmiles to deliver the medicine and Balto was a Husky and he was one of theLa dogs. I don't know woat happen, anthe other ones, bbaltis an those holdon Wat, happene to Dasher and blitzen on this run. Did they die in the cold?No, I think they made it, but it is good to know you have seen this withyour own eyes. We have witnessed it. It has empowered many a dog every timethey walk past. I would just like to say that at the revealing of this Baltostatue, it was so incredible that tought of himself was there. The statuehas the words, endurance, fidelity and intelligence written across the frontof him. Thi Satu essentially has a see alis commercial engraved on it mightIan Nak go. The park is to draw up to four hundred thousand visitors. In ayear, debb Reynolds brought carry fisher, wo Oo. The cards openingwelcome to abrica Debra, a sidepopast with Evin and tola talking about ourfavorite, which and worldlike Deby renold cut the ribbon at land of Oz's openingand a Hark does track with, like some of the other world wonders abandonedvacant deadly Arcople ter there we don't know also, apparently, back inthe day while it was like during its crime, they would play somewhere overthe rainbow sung by Judy Garland at midnight every single night. That'sterrified. I found the criteria for something to be a world wonder. So Ithink that this is the lens that we should be analyzing all of these picksthrough, except for something to be considered to wonder, F the world. Ithas to be ICOIC. It hould symbolized a chapter of human history. It has to be one of a kind. There can'tbe two great walls. For example, it also has to have a wild factor sheerscale even in the age of nanotechnology, still knocks arsaza. Finally, there'sthe ineffable a wonder of the world must embody a sense of magic andmystery. It should be a place that grows more intriguing with time. In aabandoned seam park on top of a really weirdass mountain and the Naniats moreintriguing with time I before I knew that land of Oz opened once a year, Ithought it was going to be a very cool abandoned place to break into little.Did I know that, one day year, if I trid that there's afuck ton of people there and they're all dressed up like the characterswhich wouldn't that be rough? If that was the day, you decided to go. URBIN'SBKING I've been to the land. Ofos I've been o the Baltostato you, I willconfess the Palte statue is actually my favorite place in central park becauseyou get to see. Families come by with their dogs and the dogs look excitedwhen they see the vulto statue. The pictures that people take in front ofthe Baltos AC. You are some of the most buck: wild photo, OPS and all of NewYork City, because they're always like holding a Pomeranian above their headslike he loves this. He would have been...

...our hero if, if only he could survivein the while, I think we're going to put this one to a vote. It's the Baltostatue in New York City, Central Park versus the land of Oz on Beach MountainNorth Carolina. Once again, these are going up against the coloseum of Rome,an Chichiniza Talaand. I think, there's only one statue in New York City worthbeing a world wonder, and it's not Balto, I'm coming out singing for forthe weirdest place in boom or near Bunorth Carolina Aland of Oz. This I amtorn I this is the most expertise I have had on just about any matchupwe've had on this bodcast. If, if it's a world wonder this is something thatrepresents a period of human history, this is something that grows moremagical with time. I think both of these do that LANDOF. Boz literallyclosed. It was a short period of history and it is a time caunsule ofthat the Balto Satu represented a dog saving the Great Lotnord from ahorrific pandemic, which I think we could use now more than ever. But landof Oz gets a little bit more mysterious, astime goes on that statue's still looking pretty hot, I'm going to haveto go with the land of Oz. All right land of Oz is moving on from our firstround. Next up this one one's in be tough.These are two very beautiful. I was in a weird way, very falic things: its meversus Tala Talas, representing Hastendang Park in Korea, which I'lllet him talk about it a little bit later. I am representing Ryan CCREST wow, both very salic things, deeplyFalic Rinsey crustis ut there with the Tama Hall in terms of Salic absolutelytall. Can you explain to US- and I I apologize a a Butchi penunciation butHastenthang Park? This is going to take a second to explain because it's a lot.The English name for this part is peniss park. It is known for the number of Salic statues located in in the park,and the legend goes there was this lady inhe was a verlingwyimportant. She wasa virgin married to this guy or about to be married to this guy and shedrowned and died, and then the people in this town here couldn't fish anymoreand they're like we can't catch any more fish, er like doomed or whatever,until this old guy came around and he peeed in in the ocean and then suddenly,fish just started appearing and they waved with cat of ships on a fish andthey're like oh she's, a virgin she's sad that she never got to have sex.Therefore, we just need to give her as many penit statues as possible toappease her and that's what they did. They built penit statues all over O forfor our lesseners. I have just pulled up a few choice. Images of this park,obviously blurred out for the integrity of our hostses there's. A couple F very,like discreetly placed water falls in here that I'm not too comfortable withI'm not comfortable with a lot of this. For being honest, do they have legs? Those are peniseswith legs. The around fifty different penitsates across the island Sach Park.Look at this is, is the crown jewel of the entire island. I don't know I'mlooking at a lot of things that could be the family jels of this island. Ialso une add one last thing: the Park Has Korea's largest aquarium, theatersind Arbor Arboradium, how you say this word: AgeridoHarboridum, I'm a botanist, I'M N R arberologist I'll google, that in asecond- but I I just want to check out all the native trees in Korea, and Iwant to see what everybody's up to and in order to get through, that Iliterally have to fight through a forest and giant deks. You have to ebecome one with yourself through this island. It allows you to accept who youare and embrace what you what you're meant to be. I don't want to embraceanything on this ISLANTALA. It's there's a lot going on that I'm kind ofFunky with and at the same time, it's uniquely beautiful speaking speaking of things that I'mnot sure if I'd want to embrace but they're, uniquely Beautiful Ryan Secret,a host of American idol from time immemorial, probably like two thousand and two thouand seventeen. He is a small man with a winning smile.He is also the hardest working man on...

...the planet. He has a radio show. Hewakes up at four am DOS. A radio show for three hours goes to lie withKellyan Ryan. Does that for three hours then leaves that and he's hostingAmerican idol host American idol till night time? This do doesn't sleep, Iguarantee you, he eats Soilin and that's it. I'm also not sure. If he'sfully human, I say ecause charity in children's hospitals, teaching them howto run radio shows. Does he really? Oh, my if I wear to God. If something comesout about ryns he grestd in the next few months I it's over, he looks helooks like someone who has surpassed the need for sleep. I think just aboutevery photo. I can find of him. He looks like his eyes are a little bitglazed over because he looks little dead inside. Oh well, don't worry onthe holidays. He still has to host Dick Clark's rocky new years Ev. So hedoesn't even get a break. Then he starts and ends every year stillworking, and then he wakes up the next morning to get back on his radio showand get back on his TV show and then do another t v show and then probably hostopodcast Rian seacrest is a beautiful man. He is mostly botoks and I thinkparts of a watch at this point I think, he's wonderful. So the criteria forworld wonder is something that is iconic symbolizes t a chapter of humanhistory. There can only be one of it and it has to embody a sense of magicand mystery. I think that the mystery with Rion Sea crastes. I have no ideawhat Bucky does for fun. He symbolizes a period of time, which is myadolescence. When I got so deep into American idol that when Chris doctrycame in the fourthplace, I wept for two hours. I think that he has a little bitof magic in that every time he's about to reveal America's vote. He waits forfifteen God. Damn Commercial Breaks before he tells you who is actuallygoing home. That night is it? Is it Chris Dautry ecause you're going tohurt a boy's art, but is it a place? It's just the person yeah he's everywhere baby, but can it go upagainst a literal Penis Party? It is a magical place. It is a mysterious like.Why did they do it yeah? I I in tin about that it was a pretty solid backstore, but you need to go there because it embodied that era that time periodwhen when they were struggling and they were like the only way forward- There'smore Penisi, I tink o think, like a girl, wonder you know, Ike Inspirespeople makes them like see something you know connect them. I got to say:Rinsey, GARS really just is very inspiring, but there are so many whiteguys that look pretty on t v. that's every other white guy on. We did awhole episode of Chrismas exactly, but how many peanuts perks are there in theworld? It took notes and I didn't write a lot. I wrote Penis Park versustimeless and that's thats really hard for me to decide anoysh een. This is aploist. I cannot overansy crust here. I agree with Hala. I think that the Rynsycrest is a hard working white dude in America. The peanuts park brings a inglobal perspective. I would like to visit at park more than I want to meatRin seacrust. If I was in South Korea, if I was traveling. If I was like whyI' want to see the site, I would go to that penus part. If I was in Hollywood,I wouldn't be like yes, please. Let me meet Ryan See res Rie. Seecrestdeserves it. Peterspurk really cool, really think that itdeserves feon this list, but I do think that Ryancy grace deserves title it'sif, if this is going to become a world, wonder right, these are all monumentsto this is our legacy is a human race? Do we want to do something? That'supholding the patriarchy or something that's upholding honest hard work. I would say to Pathe n a white man on TV, and I would argue,hit's not patriarchy, is is afeeld of Dix. What are you talking about? Theentire park is paying homage to female sexuality in the contaxt of that timeand culture, because it's it's all about this, the woman was Never Gong tohave sex a they built an antire park. Oepenus is for Erti Hrine for her justfor her at the top of the park Pi I would. I would prefer that it be aPartcloa go to any Volvo dealership. What did you say this one seems like itis a a pretty strong tie. I think we're...

...going to have to call in an outsidesource to settle this debate for us. What, if I bring it a roommate, do itall right? We are joined by Clare's Roommate Isabella Isabella, hers. Whatyou have to settle a debate for US between Hasingdang Park in Korea. It's amountain covered in ceramic penises to appease Um, some angry spirits thatstopped the fish from coming in verses, Ryan. Se crustthat's onlyintroduction, anybrian sorry, I thought e E. I thought heneeded no introduction the busiy Don on Thetian in the penus Park so thoroughlya hlike ou, maybe partial, he's the hardest working person on the planet.He has no look at what he's done for e news exactly. He has eighteen jobs allat once. Everyone thought he had a stroke, but he was actually just tiredfor once in his life he is America's greatest export. He is four foot sixprobably, and he is my personal hero which one do you want to be? The eighthwonder of the world, look at those panut re now, and it makes a lot ofsunse that he's your hero, like I'm, putting I'm connecting a lot of dotsthere, I'm very smooth and small. That's fair anyway. I think, based onyour such eloquent descriptions of Foth wonders I'm going to have to go topeanut park. A right e San Danmark is moving on tothe next round. You so much our next round, I'm going to sick around and seeif I can redeem the spirit of Ryansey crest. But I declare as well h. It is the Bagger two. Ninetythree versus guifiery's frosted tips bagate. Ninety three: I almost chosethis Yo Iwas literally about to choose it and I'm like no they're going tothink I'm weird for choosing no youall already GE got her. Okay. Speaking ofWeird clartels about guifier, he's fostand tip in twenty twenty. He stillhas hem. He was part of the original Prostitte Tren and actually grositivsare coming back. againthe. Fist attems belong to a person here and it'sImportah the person that they belong to the Guy Heory. He has afficiated a hundred and one gaymarriages. He has raised over twenty two million dollars for restaurants.Just intmay of this year. I got his start on the food network by winningthe second season Af Food Network Star, so that would say that he earned hisfame so yeah. I think that the man that owns the hair is just as important astherithink. Toher itself is ICOCONIC and it's a it's a wonder of the worldbecause you can picture Guy Fanny's hair in any. Do I say it pretemtouslike,I cary N. I I would say he's on the same level as right. Secrus, I woulthink he's a bonsecrust in terms of timelessness. I think reinscrust isgoing to not be a thing in the year. Twenty. Seventy, I glaranto you Ryan,seacrest's skin, will never decay Rin. Se Crest will outlive everybody. I'mlooking at on this ZOM call. Yet I have a question enxist about our fury or isit about croste tips in prarticular interesting? I think you, the two. Ithink that the tips aree a lot of people have said just the TEP,but they mean the whole thing attached. So that's fair. I think that theyrethey are kind of freakish in nature. I don't think they're very natural, but Ithink that's what makes e Aman made wonder of the world and what makes themfascinating an WAT did. I do really love the idea of people like standingin line all day to see gaifier and his tips and no one giving a shit about theactual human and did you did you see? Did you see his hips? I H T I gottouched one it's hard as at is rock that, like IIT Dre the engineers theyhave not changed, they have withstood the p the test of time. I want topresent you my argument for what is something that we're lacking right now.I I rid to the seven wonders of the world and they're all pretty beautiful,but what we're missing right now is the bad boy in the group. I think we need aa wonder of the world. That's the VILLIN and I'd like to present to you, the theBagger to ninety three. This is the second largest machine ever built byhuman kind. It is essentially a giant robot chain saw that eat mountainthey're, going to make this the eighth winder of the world and that's great,but it's going to go straight up to the pyramids of Giza, as literally depictedin the second transformers movie. Revenge of the fallen and eat the GreatPyramid of Giza and then there's only...

...going to be seven wonders again andthen they're going to start adding a couple. You know to backfell theyrelike Wabe, more wonders 'cause, this one's eating, all the rest of them, andthen it's going to be like, oh seven, eight nine! So we have to get some morein there. It's troublesome I've. I've introduced a villain into the mix. Thisthing is the size of like three football fields and it's for for ourlisteners. Imagine imagine a circular saw attached to a dinosaur the size ofthe moon and you essentially have an overage. It's a it's a drawbridge thathates you. It's the only wonder of the world that is directly antagonistic tothe other wonders L. I I've. I've pulled up a blowup screen shot of theof the sablade on this thing and each blade is roughly the size of eCheverlee Taho and en what is this thing like particularly used for theyuse it to destroy and level mountains. It dug a whole in the earth so big thatyou can see it from space. It is a giant giant, giant digging machine thatwill level anything in its path, and I don't know if you can see the bottom,but it's got like eight tank treads the size of a city block, so it can goanywhere but the ocean. So I hope you ave either a really big boat or good luck. Whatever continent you builtit on 'cause, it's going to ruin everything that lives there. GAIFIERISsweet, beautiful, head, cannotwithstand, the crushing force of a chain, sad, thesize of a planet yeah. This is a fight this time, ovand D, I'm glad shoe, gota fighter, but we don't necessarly it's twenty. Twentyclimate change has been happening since the seventies. It's been forty years.Do we need to keep destrowing mountains? No, we don't. We need to be creatinggood food. We've got to be aicusted, but where I thank you, I I appreciateyour condor the bag of two. Ninety three is inevitable. It is mysteriousin that I don't see anywhere on this thing, and I've looked in a lot ofpictures of it today for people to sit. I don't think, there's a control panelon this thing. I think it just moves out of hate. I think we built something.Even we can't contain, not Yo Peach. You was just a cool down ontop of amountain, not an evil. Angry destroyer. Why do we have to have a villain? Oh Itis, just inmacapichis fucking gone now. The BA is there and it' just a mountainoff. We went tois Divin an DI. We don't want our mountains twe, don't we wantdiners ivings and die, not ditches digging in destruction. This is allthat the Bagger to ninety three can provideus. I I also have not done research to this. What are the other two hundredand ninety two baggers, looking like this one's pretty big, if they'reGoingfou predicessors, oh tarting in nineteen fifty was the first onenineteen fifty. What, if is it was like made of Wood Nowe Ard, my knowledge ofhistory's Laching, I fiftyit's, built by the Germans, Onnoi didn't discovermetal until nineteen, fifty two so yeah, that's true, and the first thing theymade was this unkillable machine. Also I mean like listen. I love, I love theGermans but hl. We trust them with this Yaw. I think we should put this one upto a vote. The bagger two, ninety three versus gifheris charitable haircut- Idon't know I think I gotto Gow with Gafietti that, like whole scenario oflike imagining like dead Guyfia like being Li nebox and just having frostedTipson Eidyeah, I'm going with of the frosted tips, specifically the frostedtempts, not gi, yetting himself, all right I'll tell that to the chainsofTala. I I'm really conflicted on this one. Initially, I was totally sold onthe big song like give me the death machine. I was so excited, but Clareabrought up a good point. This is actually why I didn't choose it. Youcan't go around destroying mountains. You know open air mining like that'sjust the world risking in the world, but he is so muckand cool, so I'm Gona,I'm actually going to flip a coin heads. It goes to the the machine and tails itgoes to Guy Gever CAV. We can we flip that order. You want Tals, yes, okay,it was no go! U between Windclar, I fa. It'sIT AL RIGHT! That coin flip was in favor of GAIFIERI E friens. We haveCain so moving on is gifiatas Fr. I...

...cannot believe I want to that. I'm soEIT'S KYFIETES prostitixs, our next matchup. Once again, these arejoiningthings like the Tashma Hall and Petra. It is the International Space Stationrepresented by Tala Verses, Tony Hawk, represented by Emilyla. Oh my gosh, myentire childhoo. I might need M. I might need to abandon ship hereimmediately. It's Sony Hark your coolest man in the world, oning HalkYeah. I have yo tomb. I had to ask if we could have people in this fight,because immediately that's what I wanted whenever we first decided thetop age allright. Let's talk about things in space. All right world is toosmall, so we decided to go to Space International Space Station es fuckingGiannormaus all right. The thing is massive: It is by for the largest thingwe've ever put in space and it weighs like probably a Bagillian tons. Um, I'mtrying to Asan. Did you say you did research, and you said it weighsprobably a Bichilian Mon. We have a football size, football fields got a foot wide and twenty millionpound there is a building loading above our heads for to the entirety of ourlitns. Well, for one year there was not nineteen ninety seven when we were bornsince then, there has been thing floating in space above our head and inthat thing there are humans. Floating inside in the Tony Hawkey can do a kickslip. The International Space Station, it's frining aliens. Okay, there is noequivalency here. Okay, they would appreciate. If he would. Let me speakhe's, got a lot more going for him than just kick flips. While he is, he wasnamed one of the most influential skapeorders of all time. How powerful would it be to have an age woad wonder thatpeople just walk by every single day and have no idea, thatis Tagr, wonder he's straight up? Can just go invisible,ith, literally without even trying? No one knows that it's Tony Hawk wheneverthey meet Tony Hot. What if the world wonder, was on top of everyone's headevery single day? It's up there. It's it's like the moons. Everybody sees italmost every day we are literally beginning the dawn of a new era withthe ISEC. Okay, if you want to talk about a world, wonder talk aboutsomething that is literally pushing humanity to its edge. All right. Wehave the best signs the best technology. Also, when has America and Russia everworked on something together, world wardos, thato, wow, okay in answe, all of the world ever worked onsomething together. The litter have seen what legalympics o false. I didjust Google skateboard in zero gravity and the first video that park op Tup,is literally toning. Fucking Hawk doing a kick flipping zero gee I used to shopat colds a LO. This is like third grade. Fourth Grade.Second Grade Because Twenty Hawk would have me brand at colds, and I was likeOs e cooition in the world- a like middle school, like sixth grade one kidwas like wow, you probably got that ship from cold and I was like Oh, notcool, it's not cool. This is my folder of everything. I've ever done sincekindergarten. All my achievements are kept in this one binder. I went toMonnyhawk shoe. Oh My Cate Ota shirt, andand cold jeans in this picture, tthat is an actual picture that they hung up in the boys, ags Tenertel,section ICALLE. We we haven't even talked about outside of his incredibleskateboardind career. He is the most prolific scateboarder of all timefather. He is a wonderful personality on twitter, but what he did for cultureoutside of that he made one of the most compelling and for me, adolescent,shaping video game franchises of all time. The Tony Hawk series had thesoundtrack that got mede through Middle School is the only axty phase. I ad waslistening to a shitty cover of aggypop search and destroy every time I playtodyox American undergrounds. I don't know who I'm kidding. Tonyhawk is my icon. I I'm jumping ship yeah, I dednt knowthis ship is probably the greatest ship...

...that was ever built and put in spaceaconected to ship in Bofortoinok. I assess honorable mention the InternationalSpace Station is the space wonder of the world, but moving on to the next round. TonyExcuse me Anthony Hawk, a famous skater video game maker and all around goodguy he's invited to the barbecue, but you wouldn't recognize them he's movingon all right, we're moving into the penultimate round. It is two mysterious parks hosted atop ofMountain. It is the land of a and beach arout North Carolina versus HasindanPark in South Korea. I don't really know like it's Kinda hard to to beat onsomething that's already dead. You know, like you, don't Wantta kick a dog whileit's down you don't want to kick a dog ever exactly. I just I just don't think ithas the pezads to enter onto the world stage as a world. Wonder that Petesparkhas the Pasaz it does. I didn't Sorr when I was reading through thesequalifications. I I skipped the part where it says so it has to have Razamatas the fact that we've been talking about a field of literal giant, penitstatues and have had this low quality of Dick Jokes says something about ourhumor, and I can't tell if it's positive or magnative I'd like to thinkit's positive. I think it's petty pausitive. Do you think that there arepeople there? You know like in every city, there are people to act likestatues. Do you think that there are people in this park that are actinglike if your irection remains for over four hours? You have to call a doctor.I do not think so. I don't think the aws place is important enough. Itdoesn't signify anything more than a LOSDR that somebody once had aboutbuilding a replica of a movie that was kind of Mediocre at best and Al decidedto do with some girl from Oklahoma who got lost, he was from Tansiss ahowforgettable. It was toy. You O one person on earth that thinks she's fromOklahoma. The MOTERI EAS is anymore, Omawere, Dorothy, ghost rotting withher dog and the twist Errenda, which- and you know that Sa from the loning for theaase what H bogeneralinivals. But if we're talking about the eight wonder of the world, I I feellike I keep having to give you context, because it is so buckwild we're eventalking about this Christ, the Redeemer, the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Dick Mountain or the defunct amusement park that I wentto one time granted it was lovewit I enjoyed my time there. I guarantee you with my attitudetowards anxiety. I would not enjoy that deck partner, but I think that it isimportant that we have at least one of them in the world. The park representsfertility in represents, like I gare it, Ili Guarantee. If youtake someone in that Park, you're not getting away gang, I might, I mighthave to give it up to I'm going to give up to the lat of Oz.I think that Sho, you shouldn't 'cause, I'm voting for the PENUS Parkcell. Idon't yeah. I I love tha concept. I loved that I could be up there withthetasma. I love that could be up with the Colisun. Can you fucking, I imaginecise the redimer on the same scale? Is: U Park O Penus, I'm gonna? Sorry, I'mreally quick! I'm going to pull up the seven onder of the world, I'm going todo Dick Jok B. Everyone Tasmaha touch. My balls COLASEM got to see em a greatwall of Vagina. U Patchro starts with a piece that one'sjust Panis Ceuisa glad to see it, you being my peniss Christ, the big peaner, Um fucking, against all odds. I think I'm going tohave to flip sides. It's Gonta be Hasandeng Park. It's Dick Mountaincoming up into the Fenalli. Our next match up. It's Gayfiere's, frosted tips,verses. The Bird Man himself, Tony Hawk Wow. This is really Bagal. This is maybe oneof our most important Cho. We've ever...

...had two good guy icomes an if te've saidall I can say about Tony Hok. You guys know what I stand on this one. I meanyou can never really say all you need to say about Tony Hog oever. I don'tthink, there's really anything else. I can give you that would make you want avote more for Tony Hog. I get nervous when I look at Gafiada smileing BCS, no,not in like a ooh, maybe smiling at me. It's like, Oh, no, I think he's goingto sell me a stolen corvett versus when I look at Tony Hawk smiling. I'm likemy dad's finally proud of me, like it's Tony Toni. Hak's teeth convey themessage of a thousand absentee fathers. In a long string of cons that I ran atlunch period, an elementary school every time, someone brought out ahostess snack, I would say I'd never tried that before and then they wouldsay. Oh my gosh, you Hav to try cosmic frowning and then give me a piece I oulto ea Ani. Thank you! So much and three days later, they're, dumb kids and theyforget- and I say I've never had that guy cosmic brade before and the firstkid I conned out of like seven cosm brows was his kid. He always had theBonehawk shirt on and I knew that he was so nice. I could trust him. I thinkthat anybody wearing Tony Hawkmerch is going to be nice to you, but they'realso very go they're mom chomps for them takeen out in a crowd. No one canthat's the besopoyt. Can you pick out the seven wonders of the world in acrowd? Yes, they're buildings. This is the whole Permisso Clare. How aconigitwould be to have an Aithword wonder that it was so you didn't even know inyour long bossom, just or if a glass case of guyfery's actual Har. She can'tbring that one back to me. You know who was the first hum an the land of ninehundred degree fucking kilet, that's two and a half rotation, soon, a halfrotations you don who can eat and entire spicy burger from a random dinerin Arkansas and still look the same guyfery Gotheroy. I would argue, looksickly as a face temperature like he looks like he's just eating a soublecheeseburger anytime, you look at him. Tony Hawk does look like a meltedskeleton with a skateboard. Also Tonyhawk has a six fier bride madeafter him. This is Guy Fury, ontony hawks ride at six FIEO licqer. This isas though Tala has found. GUYFHEORI's family photo album, saw just fold up apicture of guyfery in very much enjoying Tony Hawks six flags ry Ye.That's that's a show. I'm going to put up to a vote. It's tonyhawk verses,exclusively the hair of gifieti yeah. I was really trying to fun o reason: aRoot Bo guy, teory and he's cool, but man you can Bot for a guy who's sittingon another guy. The Amusement Park Ride Oh sit. I can't argue with that. I'm going to vote for Tony AK as well.He's got to go through the disappearing. Man has to go through Tony Dodyhawk. American Chameleonskateborder renowned around the world is moving on to the finale a park fullof penut statues against American treasure Tony Hawk as who or what willbecome the eighth wonder of the man made world. I think just for contaxts.I want to give us all the seven wonders of the world as it stands right now.The Great Pyramids of Giza, the Great Wall of China, Petra, the Coliseum ofRome, Chichiniza Machi, Pichu, the Tajmahall and Christ, the Redeemer andjoining that a lustrious group, a beautiful display of what humanity hasto offer the greatest creations of our species on the planet for timeinmemorial it's either Tonyhawk the skateboard man or a park covered in DikSatus. So you know were authorities on this. I guess apart full of three hundred erect ballic statuesbuilt to keep the ghost of a virgin brideaway dedicated to fertility andfish twelve thousand visitors every year, not an icon living liketwentyhack, but an icon. Sorry, not an icon. LIPIC like the Jaden Smith, lyric,Ou, Tos, O emily. Why do you think Tony Hawkshould be the eighth wonder of the world? Tuyhak has literally done thingsthat no man has ever done before. Also it would be so iconic to have te eigtoonder be a human. What happens when you...

...dogs, that's a good question: Tonyhawknever really dies. Does he two things we don't know, but what Yo Hav theheart? It will lat. We do pretty much now. You guys know Tony Hockei's realcool. I don't really know what else I need to like. Tell you guys other thanhe deserves this IAM voting for this g willingness. Are you willing to saythis tonyhoks ye? Thank you. Thank you. Tony Hawk himself would be humbleenough to recognize what this park represents to the world.What is e represental Ala? I represents firtinality in fun and it representswhat joy lice can bring us and how we need to remember importantthings in our life through the men. Tony Hawk represents freedom right.Much does you know th peanis Part Tony Hawk represents the ability to expressyourself through the closest humanity can get to flight. Have you felt thefrictionless feeling of rolling on Four Well oiled wheels across asphal you're,going to meet up with your road dogs? Your Thorns, your brows at the localskatepart, no one's ever said: Hey. Let's go hang out at the Dick Park, notat all. Let he go. Carvut Iho promise you they ap a Pramus, they just at itin Korean and we couldn't understand it. B'cause, none of us peak careenguess.What is at twenty, twenty Olympic Sport, he sees me Guess: What's a twentytwenty one Olympic Sport, Ski Owordings, not circumcision, but like his greatestachievement in the skeboarding world, was being the first to lay in the ninehundred, but he's not the last and he won't neverrelize. There are already staters who are better than him. Tony Hawker, Ithink, is a legend enscapeboarding and then he brought the sport forward andhe reignited fame nerlike interest in the spor but easy timeless. I don'tthink so. Well, people a hundred two hundred years from now remember TonyHawk, for who he was. I think that was beautiful. I think he actually broughtup a good point. It's. What will we be remembered by isa species? I think that I mean the way: twent Twentis going likelitit O twent ytwenty five, a best right humans are out of here. Next up the aliens they'recomeand, they figured it out. They realized that we shouldhave beencommunists long ago and they come and they visit Earth and they are surveyingthe remains of the human race and they see all the world grunners right. Thisis our legacy as humanity. This is our legacy as a species. You go to SouthernCalifornia you're these aliens, and you see these divets and the ground and you crushin fucking sick, gainer off a halfpipe 'cause. You definitely have a hubrerboard all aliens have that you'renot going to the Penis Park that oes even match what I got going downstairs.I'm a methin base life form I'm mostly a gas, but I definitely have feet and Ican still Kik flip. All aliens know ot of scateboard. This is a globalphenomenon that was popularized by Anthony Frenk hathe Penis Park is, Iwould listen personally speaking, not great. I think it's kind of whack,honestly good for them. They've got fish that year, that's cool fishareverywhere, it's the fucking ocean goat, send your boat. Further Tony Hawkeinvented a stort that it's so fucking cool and Rad that it's maker break inmiddle scrool. I took along board every day to middle school. It was downhillall the way down there, but I was too scared to go that fast. So I would godown one block get off my longboard. Carry it one more block, skate anotherblock, get off and walk, and then you know what I did the wholeway home buckand walked. I was overweight. I had to carry this shit. I was too out ofbreath pumping with one leg, but I still did it for the cloud the wholeday in the backpack longboard strapped between my backback strapped by my backlike the WIGGs of a fucking Hawk Talla, I was an angel amongst children. Do youthink that I'm not going to fight for Antony Frank Hawk now an of me as the awonder of the human species? Let's put it up to a boat? If, if I'm going topit something up against Machi, piche and Chichanizza, and all these things,I know that I would want something that could do a fucking narly grind on itand that's why I'm going to pick Tony Hawk, I think Tony Hawk could do a ninehundred off the top of the Tashma Hall...

...any day. I I think, actually that's thepoint that I, like none of Yo had made yet but you're right, Tony Hok can do acake Li off of all o the onliwhat w the Bagman two, ninety three as scary andcool and powerful as it is. It was very antagonistic to the current sevenwonders of the world. I think Tony Hawk only exists to amplify. If I Google,Tony Hot Great Wall of China, I tet you a hundred dollars that something willcome up its notbens in twentand. Fifty when he's ded. That's such a goodquestion. What happens? AIO N wonder forever? Doyou have to go to gravesight to see a world wonder that would be sad. Therest of these things, I would argue, are not alive, but also either ty.Thirty five, when the human penis is been overruled by genetic manipulationand just honestly the power of women. Do we need a memorial to that? It'smuch like a grave in a Wasi. It's already a grave. It's a mor her deside!I can't oust. I have my this is. What's reallyselling me right now on my head. Is that not everyone loves penises, but mostpeople, love, Jony, howke o talk about compelling last words joining such things as the Great Wallof China, Petra the Coloseum Chichiniza Macupichu, the Tajma Hall Christledemerhonorable mentioned the Great Pyramid of Giza. It's the one, and only thebird man himself. Anthony Frank, Hawk Tony Hawk is the eighth oner of the way aise your skateboards high tonight,because the most important group of people you know Justvotus on the eightof the World Yaw. If I've learned anything, is that it doesn't matter. If you move nationsto war, it doesn't matter. If you can stand the test of time. What's mostimportant is being just a good person and also knowing how to kick flip real,real good. Thank you for joining US shoes. Your fighter, we'll see you nextweek O. I.
