– We said what? – Let's talk about that.
(bright upbeat music) (fire crackling) (air whooshes) – “Good Mythical Morning!” – As we have discussed before, human memories are highly unreliable and they're susceptibleto being influenced and altering all sorts of unexpected ways, at least I think we'vediscussed that before (snaps).
– In fact, there are a number of instances of us saying things on this show, and then many of you have pointed out that we've contradicted ourselvesusing previous episodes.
– No, no.
– So today, we gonna lean into that.
We're gonna test how wellwe can accurately remember things that we've said on GMM.
It's time for: As humans we have many faults, but will our memories turn out false? Shout out to actor Christoph Waltz.
– You just rhyme false with faults.
– That's right.
– But then Waltz.
– Waltz, that's all– – Okay, here's what we're gonna do.
We've dug up some oldGMM clips of one another in which we gave a strong opinion or belief about something very specific, and before we reveal each clip, we're gonna give eachother the opportunity to try to remember what we said, and then we're gonna play the clip and see how great orterribly our merv.
– You don't remember how to say memory? – Memory have served us.
– This is also a competition.
So the winner will receive aone-of-a-kind memory foam comb.
– Oh that sounds nice.
– Alright, I'm gonna testyour memory first okay? – It's like a steel trap.
– Here we go.
Alright, Rhett, in May 2014.
– Oh good month.
– You once proclaimed thatno one should ever tweet using the hashtagblank-life as in #mottolife, #musicianlife, #bigbootylife.
– Oh yeah, that's so annoying.
– With one notable exception.
Well, I'll accept one, but you actually gavethree notable exceptions.
If you can remember any one of those, I'll give you the point.
– I think this is somebodywho what they do matters, matters more than all the peoplethat just, you just listed.
– And it's like notable and people would actually want to know.
So I'm just gonna go backinto that part of my brain.
– Right, go in that part of your brain.
– An astronaut.
– If you saw somebody tweet, okay astronaut, #astronautlife.
– Why y'all laughing, that's a good answer.
It must not be the right one, but I'm going with astronaut because it seems somethingthat like I would be into that.
– Alright, let's go back to May 2014 and see if he remembers correctly.
– Don't hashtag anything with– – Or maybe it's Kylie.
– life in it, like model-life.
I see this all, actor-life.
– You see this all the time? – Musician-life.
Yeah people are like ohwriting songs 3:00 a.
Whatever comes to me, musicians-life.
Come on now, really? Now unless you're an animal, 'cause if you're like doingsomething very dolphin-like at 3:00 a.
and you're like dolphin-life, I'm into that.
– If you're a dolphin.
– If you're a dolphin.
or I think maybe a gorilla or a chimpanzee has probably tweeted.
Dolphin, gorillas, you're sitting on that.
(buzzard buzzes)Do you remember that? You don't get a point.
Sadly, I do not remember that, Link.
– Yeah, it's weird, I don't.
We do a lot, we say a lot, and we seem pretty passionate about it.
– Alright, Link, in August, 2014, – Mm-hmm.
– you once shared a rule involving personal space on the subway.
You said if two people arecrammed so close together on the subway that theirbodies are touching in more than two places, something must happen.
– And my first thought isyou must say something.
You must acknowledge the closeness, But maybe I said you must keep silent.
(studio members laugh) I don't even know what Iwould have thought back then, but right now I would say you must keep silent, but you know what, I think I said you mustacknowledge the touching.
So I'm going with acknowledge to touching, but I'm a different man now.
Alright, let's watch the clip.
– If you are touching more than two places with an individual that you do not know, like are their shouldertouch, there's a knee touch, and there's like a wrist touch because like we're slammedtogether in a subway.
– It's kinda weird.
We wouldn't sit like this probably.
– In a crowded subway, you might.
I feel like at this point the rule is you have to talk to them.
– Hey, man.
– But you should do it with anapologetic look on your face.
– I'm sorry, where you from? – Hey, I actually live in the subway.
(laughing together) Hey, I got it right.
– Alright, that's right.
(bell dings) – And I would not speak to anyone now.
I would not take my own rule.
– You didn't add the apologetic tone, but that was pretty good.
I mean you basically remembered it.
You have to acknowledgeit and talk to them.
– I feel like I guessI've grown as a person, and I got a point which is more important.
– Give me one.
– I'm gonna give you one, but first I'm gonna plug this sweatshirt.
(studio members laugh) Feel Good Mythical Morning.
You wanna feel good in a sweatshirt, – That's a nice sweatshirt.
– Then get this at mythical.
I was thinking, a lot of people say watching this show makes them feel good.
I was like, we should put that on a shirt, and the shirt should feel good.
– Yeah, it's very soft.
– We've done it.
It's three-dimensional, the lettering.
It's not just printed, but like you can feel the feel goodness.
– Pretty happy about it.
It's great on a construction site too.
– Right, or what about biking at night.
– Alright, you've given anumber of parenting tips on this show.
There's one thing you said, never do.
Oh no, you said you neverdo it with your kids because you believe it's bad parenting, and that dads who do it are quote losers.
What is that thing? This is from August, 2017.
So it's not as far backas these other ones.
– Dads who do this thing are losers? – Yep, you never do this with your kids.
Dads who do it are losers.
– (laughs) The thing is is that – Yep.
– I don't know what partof my brain to go into.
I don't know if is it the part that I was actuallysaying something I think or the 99% of time I'm just BS-ing.
– Boy, that's progress.
99% of the time he's BS-ing.
– I think it has something to do with like calling your child your like best friend or something like that.
(studio member laughs) I know that sounds harsh, but you're not, it's not your best friend, it's your son, and you're the dad.
They have friends, you have friends.
I mean you have a friendly relationship.
Did I say something like that? – Let's find out.
– That's pretty harsh.
– I've never really lookedat my children's toys.
(studio members laugh) I don't believe in that.
I believe that's bad parenting when you get down on theirlevel and you play with them.
I've never thought that.
Whenever I see a dad doing that, I'm like oh what a loser.
– Getting down on your kid'slevel and playing with them.
(buzzard buzzes)Yeah, I still believe that.
– It was even harsherthan what you guessed.
You don't get a point.
– Dang it, this is hard! Okay.
In August, 2016, at one point on the show you discussed the conceptof the uncanny valley.
Essentially the closersomeone resembles a human or something resembles a human the more humans arecreeped out by that thing.
You proposed the theory as to why humans would be creeped out by humanoid robots.
What was the theory? – This is the level of thinking that I didn't know I ever did.
– I think you just gottago back to that place.
That's what you did forthe first one, you just.
Don't try to remember what you said.
Just think about what you would say now.
– I think it's that you'reafraid of being intimate with something that's not really human.
– Play the clip.
– I think even more soit's mate selection.
I think deep down whenever welook at something like a robot we're asking ourselves doI wanna mate with that.
(laughs) I'm not saying consciously.
I'm saying subconsciously, you're always thinking do you want to matewith fill in the blank.
I did not remember that.
(bell dings) – That is crazy.
– But I just thought about what I would have thought of about, and I rethought it.
– It's the exact same thing.
– Again, it's the concussion thing.
It's like whenever I got hit in the head, and I kept coming to, Ikept saying the same thing.
Hold on, I'm just coming to.
Evidently I've hurt my left hip.
No matter how many times I came to, I said the exact same thing.
– Well, there's no way I'mgonna win this one.
(laughs) – In November of 2013.
– So that's a long time ago.
– You and I each made our own mind maps, pictorial representationof a set of goals.
You remember that? – Mm-hmm.
– Do you? – Yeah, because you've gota question about it as well.
– Oh, okay.
– So I remembered it whenI looked at the question.
– Your mind map set a list ofmore than 10 lifelong goals.
How many of these goals can you remember? I'll accept three.
– I thought the mind mapwas a day in the life of, but you're saying it was, this is lifelong goals.
– Fly an ultralight.
– Visit Antarctica.
– What else would you have wanted to do? – There's so many things that I wanna do.
– Since then, you mayhave done one of them.
– This is 2013? – Mm-hmm.
– Something with beans? – Something with beans, he says.
(studio members laugh) I think you need to be more specific.
– Like bathe in a giant thing of beans? – Okay, there's your answer so.
Visiting Antarctica, bathein beans, and the first one? – Fly an ultralight.
– Fly an ultralight, let's see.
– I wanna hunt for thattreasure in the Rocky Mountains that we talked about.
I would like to learn how tobecome a master cheese maker.
I would like to be a mayor of a very small town at some point.
– For the water tower.
– I would like to liveon an island by myself for just a short period of time where I am trained in hand-to-hand combat, and then when I come backI am a superhero for hire.
I would also as I– – Looks a lot like the Flash.
– As I stated in past episodesof the 200-year-old person, I would like to live insideof a hollowed-out tree at some point, and thenI would like to die while performing amazingstunts at a monster truck rally late in life.
I'm added the fact that Iwould also like to do research, intense research onrenewable energy sources because I feel like that– – 'Cause you have time for that.
– That's the key to the future.
– With everything elsethat you're not gonna do.
– And in this part of my life where I am becoming a master cheese maker, I'm gonna have a lot ofmilk that I'm dealing with, and I would like you to be a butter maker, that's a (laughs), and we can go in 50/50, and I'll make the cheeseand you make the butter.
It'll be called Rhettand Link's Dairy Farm.
I just, there's just, (buzzard buzzes) I have too many things that I want to do.
I can't narrow it down.
I didn't even get one of them right.
– No, you didn't.
– I said Antarctica, which is an island.
– No, it's not, it's a continent.
– But it is an island, an island continent.
– Surrounded by water? – It's an island continentjust like Australia.
– Australia's not an island, is it? – But I wouldn't get a point anyway.
I didn't get three.
– Yeah, that's right.
But you remembered the monster truck.
– Let's see if we can keepyour streak alive, Link.
– You also made a mind map.
– Your mind map illustrated what you wanted toachieve in a single day.
So that was why I thought that.
So you went with the day, I went with a lifetime.
Can you remember what was inthe middle of your mind map? This is November, 2013.
– Mine ended with monster trucks, and that's the amazing thingthat happened in that episode was that we were both, that was the overlap.
We were both doing somethingwith monster trucks, and then I think I died ina monster truck accident.
That's my answer, died ina monster truck accident.
– The middle of your mind map was you dying in a monster truck accident.
That's all I can remember right now.
– Okay, let's watch the clip.
– I made my mind map, and here it is, Rhett.
Of course you can see right in the center you have my eyeball, and because I want to see today.
– You started with an eyeball? So the central idea of youreye, of today is your eyeball.
– I want to see today.
– I technically think, I mean that's okay.
If it works for you, man, just do it.
I don't want to critique your mind map.
– I do want to see today, (buzzard buzzes) but what happened tomy monster truck death? – Again.
– That was a different? – You are dead at the end of it, but I think that it wasa different episode, but the thing that wassuper ironic was the fact that you also had cheese on your mind map.
– I had cheese, and you had cheese.
– Oh, I do want to see today.
I think that's a great way to live.
– Go ahead.
– I got to get one of these right.
– Believe it or not, Rhett, at one point you gave a strongopinion on what you think Tom Cruise's ballsack is like.
How did you describe Tom Cruise'sballsack in March of 2018? – Not a wrinkle on it, justas smooth as a baby's bottom.
– You seem confident.
It seems like you think about this often, like you're not accessing a memory but something that's very present for you.
– I mean not one crease.
Like if you dropped a drop of water on Tom Cruise's ballsackit'd be like dropping water on a duck's back, it just swoosh.
Tom Cruise's ballsack is hydrophobic.
– Be still, boop, boop.
Alright, let's see if he's right.
– This celebrity gets laser treatment to smooth out wrinkles, remove hair, and correct discolorationof the testicles, also nicknamed ball irony.
Here's why it is Tom Cruise, Rhett.
Because this is urban legend type stuff.
This is something thatcomes out of Scientology, like somebody escapes, and then they're like, and you know what else he does? This! – I think that Tom Cruisehas got a tight ballsack.
I mean he's probably gotthe tightest ballsack of any 55 year old manor however old he is.
– You didn't say tight.
You said smooth.
– You said wrinkleless.
– Give me a point, man.
– But you remembered the ironing, and so that's why you thought, but I can't give you the point'cause you didn't say tight.
– No, but it's so tight thatit's like it's pulled tight over the testes and it's smooth.
There's not a wrinkle.
But you didn't say the word tight.
– Just give me a point, I can't win.
– I'll give him half a point(bell dings) because he didn't say.
– Well, if you get this wrong, you should automatically lose because this is the easiestone that you've got.
In September, 2013, whenexplaining your opinion on why things are funny, you described laughter in a very specific way.
You said laughter is like blank.
Can you remember what yousaid laughter is like? – I only remember this 'causeit pops up occasionally.
– Right, this is one, unlike every other one, we've re-accessed this this many times.
– Yeah, so I can't takecredit for remembering this.
I remember other peopleremembering it on a regular basis but laughter is likefarting out of your mouth.
– Play the clip.
– I think things are funny because the wholeprinciple of comic relief.
Tension builds up.
Tension builds up in your body.
– Right in here.
– I don't mean to go, Idon't mean to go here, but.
– You're going to.
– But tension builds up and you fart, and then if you've, like so laughter is like fartingout of your mouth.
(laughs) Put that a t-shirt.
– I'm gonna tell you rightnow, that would be funny.
(laughs) I don't know why it would, but I can tell you right now.
– It's a release of tension.
– Laughter is like a fart from your mouth.
(laughs) – It is.
– Put it on t-shirt.
(bell dings) – We never did.
– I'm gonna give you anotherhalf a point just because (bell dings)I'm seeing the moment.
What's that that I was trying to do? See the moment, be in the moment.
See the now.
– I appreciate it, but that doesn't giveme more points than you.
