Aaron Lammer: Brady, I’ve been wanting to have you back on show for a while. Actually before I get to what I really want to talk to you about, do you guys would you be up to talking a small amount of breaking news?

Jay Kang: Sure.

Aaron Lammer: Daily news as it were.

Jay Kang: Which is it?

Aaron Lammer: The ETFs are dead now.

Brady Dale: All of them?

Aaron Lammer: All of them were nixed all at once, is that right?

Jay Kang: Nine of them. I don’t-

Aaron Lammer: Yeah, I think or at least this batch.

Brady Dale: So it’s not just the Winklevoss one?

Aaron Lammer: This generation is dead. In fact, I believe that they expedited … Like, they could’ve waited a week or two. Like, rolling college admissions. And they were like, “You didn’t get in. And also, none of you got in. You’re all rejected.”

Jay Kang: Yeah in fact … Remember the year they had no Pulitzer prize for literature?

Aaron Lammer: Wasn’t that this year?

Jay Kang: No, I think it was a few years ago. I think it’s very similar. They’re like, “Not only did you not win. In fact, none of you have won.”

Aaron Lammer: This is the year there’s no Nobel prizes at all.

Jay Kang: Really? Why?

Aaron Lammer: Because of sexual misconduct scandals in the Nobel organization.

Jay Kang: Huh. I don’t know how I feel about that. Is that really fair to the people that might win?
