If you don’t know who Joe Rogan is, he’s many things. The UFC color commentator for major Pay Per view Events in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts, the host of an excellent podcast called the Joe Rogan experience, and an accomplished stand up comedian among other various ventures too. I highly recommend you listen to his podcast. I listen at the gym as it accomplishes two goals, learning, and lifting.
Recently he released a new one hour special on Netflix called triggered. It’s an obvious joke about the hyper-sensitive politically correct culture that is infecting America. The special is fantastic, and deserves a watch. Below is the trailer and a link for the special on Netflix. Remember, that Netflix is not for binge watching.
The rest of this article will focus on insights that will be valuable to you, that Joe expertly disguised as jokes. It’s interesting how triggered was filmed in San Francisco, yet he was able to cross PC lines that would cause a protesters wet dream in almost any other context. He has quite a rational mind on social issues, discrediting the ridiculous idea that men and women are the exact same among other strong points.
Watch the trailer, read the insights, and watch the film if it interests you.
“You Don’t Catch Dolphins With Fishhooks.”
11-hydroxy metabolite is what’s produced when you eat weed.
“It let’s you talk to dolphins.” Joe Rogan- Triggered
When you watch the special, you’ll understand more. Joe speaks about eating edible marijuana and being able to talk to dolphins. I’ve eaten a pot brownie and entered into an isolation tank for four hours, it was absolutely amazing. It isn’t like a normal experience, it becomes a hallucination that can be quite pleasurable. Marijuana like anything else, is great if it works for you, terrible if it doesn’t. What’s important is to try everything, twice, and continue using what works. Twice just to make sure.
I’ve found nights I cannot sleep smoking a little weed is like being cradled in the wool of the sheep I was trying to count moments earlier. Frankly, the best sleep I’ve ever gotten has come from smoking beforehand. Would I recommend smoking weed during the day? No! Because it doesn’t work for me.
You don’t catch dolphins with fishhooks.
Dolphins don’t bite fishhooks. They’re too intelligent to fall for bait on a line, and risk their lives for a reward that they wouldn’t be able to enjoy. Would a person risk their life for a paltry reward? They certainly would. Imagine for a moment if people were hunted by aliens that lived in the clouds. They had fishing hooks with various consumer goods dandled in front of you while you walked. How many people would grab for a new iPhone in front of them, even if they knew getting caught would result in being eaten alive?
Most people. Most people would think they can get away, or that they’re different. Even if you had a 20$ gift card to Arby’s on the line, some genetically cursed individual would take a run for it. A dolphin would do no such thing. What does that say about the intelligence of people, compared to dolphins?
Here is another point for you to think about: Dolphins can learn human words, like dogs and other animals. Does any one person know any words of dolphin or dog?
