Jamie) Thanks for coming back for this week’s edition of Plain Talk.
(Kyle Bauer) Hi, this is Kyle Bauer with Plain Talk with Duane Alan Toews. (Duane Toews) Kyle Bauer. (Kyle) [Singing] Duane Alan Toews. (Duane) Easy now. (Kyle) Duane. Go ahead. (Duane) Your Fact or Fiction question today, it was a grand entrance, by the way. (Kyle) It was. [Making trumpet sounds] (Duane) When crying, that is, you do that often, did you practice that when you were a child? (Kyle) All the time on the tractor, I mean you’re out there for hours. (Duane) Did you know, your Fact or Fiction question today, when you cry, depending on whether it’s out of happiness or pain, determines which eye releases the first drop. (Kyle) Hmm. (Duane) Fact or Fiction? (Kyle) That’s interesting. I had heard that it makes a difference in the saltiness of your tears as to whether they’re tears of joy or tears of pain. (Duane) What? Saltiness? (Kyle) Well, I think it’s just as good as the question you have. Okay, have you ever tasted a tear? Of course you have. (Duane) Not that I recall. (Kyle) Oh my Gosh. Well they’re salty. (Duane) Okay. Licking your cheek over there, or how you’re getting that done? (Kyle) It runs down your face, and into your mouth, and you’ve got things coming out of your nose. (Duane) That’s not good. (Kyle) Yes. Well anyway, so you’re saying, if it’s tears of joy, it’s out of one side first, tears of—sure, I’ll go with True. (Duane) That’s what it says. (Kyle) Left brain, right brain. (Duane) You think? (Kyle) I think so. (Duane) First drop out of the right eye is happiness, left eye it’s pain. (Kyle) That’s interesting. (Duane) Left eye would be right brain. (Kyle) Yes. (Duane) That would make sense. Pain would register on the right side of your head. (Kyle) Because that’s the side of, if your right brain, that is your– (Duane) That’s your cognitive part or side. (Kyle) And the creative is on the left? (Duane) Yes. (Kyle) Do not take this to the bank, people. We’re doing this off the top of our head. (Duane) It was a long time ago that I took General Psychology. (Kyle) Is that where we learned that? (Duane) I passed, by the way. (Kyle) Ooh, I did pretty well in that. I liked that. (Duane) I had General Psychology. I think that’s about as far as they let me go, though. (Kyle) I think that’s as far as- (Duane) The writing’s on the wall. (Kyle) Did you do any of the experiments? You could get extra credit. You didn’t? (Duane) Not. There were… (Kyle) Did you just say Hutch? (Duane) I did it at Hutchinson Community College. (Kyle) I did at K-State, and you could get extra credit if you were part of- Duane) Participated in studies? (Kyle) -in experiments, yes. I mean, like five points. (Duane) I thought that’s how you made beer money. (Kyle) Well, you did that too. You get a few mad dollars, and you got extra credit. (Duane) Extra points. (Kyle) Yes. I don’t know if I can remember any of them or not. But, most of them were questionnaire. (Duane) Not medical. (Kyle) No. [Laughter] (Kyle) Well there was that one- (Duane) That one- (Kyle) -that one. That was the best one of all. (Duane) Hair grew back after a while. (Kyle) I don’t remember exactly how it happened. Inflation, adjusted US debt burden per American. (Duane) $43,000. (Kyle) You’re certainly in the neighborhood. This says 45, and I think that it’s more than that, but I think because of the adjustment in inflation. (Duane) Yes. (Kyle) Okay. (Duane) I got close, I’m kind of proud of myself. (Kyle) Yes, I think it’s a wild lucky guess myself. (Duane) Pretty much. (Kyle) 1945 was by far and away out most indebted period, but then in 1992, again adjusted, per American, we crossed that in 1992. Why are you squinting on 1945, World War II? (Duane) It was World War II it’s why we got in such debt. (Kyle): World War II, and then we paid it down, paid it down, paid it down, and it stayed fairly flat in the ’70s and early ’80s, started to creep up through 1992, and then it started to go up some more, and then it came down slightly in ’94, and then it’s gone up a lot- (Duane) Ever since. (Kyle) -since then, and it really went up a lot lot in 2008. (Duane) Imagine that.
